“Do you believe pastors and clergy should be paid? Who really benefits from a church’s non-profit tax status?
In today’s podcast and post I will bring up a “Question from Corinth” that the modern church largely ignores, and is a portal through which parishioners can see the contrast between the business of religion, and a community of faith.
Join me now as we see beyond those paid to share the gospel, and discover how this cultural trend establishes a world for unbelief.
“Have you ever felt like no matter what you try, you never seem to obtain the life and the freedom for which you hope? There may be a reason for this.
In today’s podcast and post, I begin a series entitled “Questions from Corinth” with a look at the story of the Hebrews who “died in the wilderness.”
Join me now as we see beyond those who possess an unlived life, and why this type of captivity is so common in our world today, and why this indicates that our condition is beyond slumber and requires far more than being “woke.”
“Do you have sense like you need to get your life on track spiritually? Is it possible to have spiritual renewal without getting sucked into a religion, a cult, or become weird?”
In today’s podcast and post I am going to unpack five questions that will help you understand how you can find spiritual renewal within the privacy of your own soul and how to navigate a world of competing religions and truth claims.
Join me now as we see beyond the religious containers and all their propaganda, and discover how to extract the contents by following the same voice which has called all people, in all times, and in countless ways.
“Do you think you know yourself? Most of us do. So, imagine our shock to discover we are all living in self-deceit.
In today’s podcast, post, and video I explore how the entire world has become deceived. I’ll reveal how every problem is a truth problem and how our need for validation traps us in a surface level existence, which promises freedom but never delivers.
Join me now as we probe our own self-deception and I point us to the deconstruction project which leads us to authenticity in the Truth.
“Is there really such a thing as a state of flow? Has science really unlocked the secret to mental focus or higher performance?
If we follow the trajectory of modern “so-called” experts in flow and performance, then we enter a marketplace where we can exchange our self for a super-self and our life for a super-life. We’re told that flow is a heightened conscious state where we gain superpowers allowing us to outperform others and rise to the top.
What if true flow isn’t derived from more effort and output? Join me now as we see beyond the pseudo flow of performance, and learn that true flow sets us on a course, not for doing, and not even for being, but for seeing?
“Is the Universe an unintelligent, random, amalgamation of elements and time as science tells us it is? What about those who ascribe some form of spirituality to the Universe?
In today’s podcast, post and video, I will reveal how both of these perspectives end in either irrationality or idolatry.
Join me now as we see beyond our triggers, and beyond the universe, to discover how to repatriate the word “God” and why it’s the most rational and worthy term for the power which is behind, in and through everything.
“Does spiritual awareness really make a difference in our lives?”
Today we return to our ongoing series of Psalms Greatest Hits with a look at the Twenty Seventh Psalm. In our hurried lives of distraction, it’s common for modern people to ignore, dismiss, or avoid stillness and reflection upon our spiritual condition. This enlarges the amount of emotional pain that we must suppress leaving many of us with a sense of anger or despair just below the surface of our lives.
Join me now as we see beyond everything and follow David’s pointing finger toward the unseen world. We will take a few tips from David and perhaps we can become honest like him and allow all the subterranean reality to bubble to the surface, where we can give it the attention it requires.
“What is Easter all about? Culturally it’s a huge religious holiday, but is that the real Easter Experience?
In today’s podcast and post we pause from our series to unpack the Easter experience. As usual, this podcast is going to take us in a completely different direction from everything else going on this morning.
Join me now, if you can, to be still, quiet and not clinging to anything, and you will see beyond everything, beyond the distraction and noise, and array of thoughts and emotions. Perhaps if you do, you may have a genuine Easter experience.
How do you understand Jesus statement: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no one comes to the Father except by me.”?
In today’s podcast and post we examine one of the most quoted passages in the bible and reveal how Church history has got this wrong. Imagine our surprise to discover that Jesus’ claim of exclusivity is not unto the Christian religion.
Join me now as we continue our exploration of Jesus’ famous last words, as these open a portal to a dimension of seeing and understanding which brings all things together instead of dividing them into tribal religion.
