In today’s podcast and post I will show how competitive religions can highjack our discovery of God and self, and why each insists that their way is the only true way.
Join me now as we discover how Christ following is subversive to institutional power, and why the message of the Bible reveals that salvation is not our over-identification with religion, but the self who is discovered by our liberation from it.

In today’s podcast and post we look closer at the prophesy of Zechariah and how Jesus willfully fulfilled it as he went straight into Jerusalem to “poke the bear”.
Join me now to explore how this display of power should have been the end of religion as we know it. Come and see how humility and sacrificial love are the most subversive powers the world has ever known.
