430- Rome 10: Abraham’s Faith Predates Religion

“Do you believe Abraham is in Heaven? If so, how did he get there without converting to Christianity or any world religion?

In today’s podcast and post, I will join Paul in his effort to prove that world religion has obscured the Gospel rather than proclaim it, and this is proven by just how hard it is for some to accept Paul’s words as he has written them.

Join me now as we read Paul’s explanation for believing that while all people do not share a religion, we do in fact, all share a faith.

429- Rome 9: Paul’s Big But…

“We’ve all heard preachers quote: ‘We’ve all sinned and fallen short…’, but almost none of them will say that all are made right with God. Have you ever wondered why modern religion rejects this idea, even though Paul labors to prove it?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series in Paul’s letter to Rome, with a look at the second half of chapter three. I’ll explain the common assumptions which cause modern theology to go off course.

Join me now as we reveal that faith is not a threshold for entry into a world religion, but a Christological continuum that includes everyone.

428-Rome 8-The Religious Are NOT Better Off

“If the modern Gospel is an invitation to convert to the Christian religion, then why does Paul spend so much time deconstructing religion? Could it be that religion has misunderstood the Gospel?”

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our series in Paul’s letter to Rome, tracing Paul’s gospel all the way back to Abraham, and how religion misunderstood it.

Join me now as we re-discover that the Gospel has been proclaiming freedom from religion for over four-thousand years.

427- Rome 7: Easter’s 25th Anniversary

“Do you know anything about Easter’s 25th Anniversary? It’s ok if you don’t.

In today’s podcast and post we reconstruct the historical context of Paul visiting Rome twenty-five years after Jesus’ death and resurrection. The Roman church is nothing like churches today, and the attraction of Easter wasn’t candy or bunnies, it was violence and incarceration. 

Join me now as we strip away the floof and fizzle of our modern Easter Evangelical Extravaganzas, and stare directly into the message that made the religious mind so angry that it would cost Paul his own head.

426- Was Judas’ Friday Good?

“What do you know about Judas Iscariot besides the fact that he betrayed Jesus?”

Today on our Good Friday podcast and post, we look between the lines of scripture to see an entirely different perspective on Judas as he faced his final hours of life along with Jesus. 

Join me now as we see beyond everything, as we consider the deeper theological realities that are embedded in this story which can reshape Easter for everyone.

425-Rome 6-Paul Deconstructs Religion

“Is there only one true religion? If so, why does every religion claim to be the true one?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series in the book of Romans, as Paul turns his direction toward the religious mind. Paul deconstructs the outward displays of religious piety and shows how the non-religious person can be more righteous depending upon what’s in his or her heart.

Join me now as Paul drives us to the point of asking “Then what’s the point of religion?” as he sets us up for chapter three.

424-Rome 5-The Lost and Found

“Is there really a big difference in morality between religious and irreligious people? 

Today we continue our series in Romans with Paul’s answer to this question. We’ll learn that the difference is not found in our moral behavior, but in the source of our identity.

Join me now as Paul deconstructs everyone’s claim to be superior to anyone else, and why seeing people as saved or unsaved takes everyone down the wrong path.

423-Rome 4-Relearning Judgment

“Is Judgment Day coming? Is there a looming threat of wrath for those who don’t pick the right religion?

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our series exploring Paul’s letter to Rome. I’ll deconstruct our common misunderstanding of wrath and judgment, and surgically replace it with Paul’s framework for everyone.

Join me now as we re-consider our lives within two planes of existence, and why seeking the higher plane allows us to reclaim our minds and heal our world.

422-Rome 3-We are ALL Given Over

“Does your religion teach about the wrath of God? What if religion has been teaching it wrong?

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our series in Romans with a look at verses 18-32 of chapter 1. Religion’s big threat is that if a person sins or doesn’t pick the right team, they will face God’s wrath, but Paul says something quite different…

Join me now as Paul frees everyone from the wrong view of wrath, and we learn that wrath is not behavioral, it’s ontological.

421-Rome 2- Reformation Viagra

“Do you think every translation of the Bible is the same? If so, think again.

In today’s podcast and post I will establish the foundation upon which Paul’s letter will go out to the city of Rome. Just like Paul, I will do my best to bring the religious mind with us, so that all comers can hear the Good News he is so excited about.

Join me now as our Greek exposition unearths a trajectory that fundamentalism will always reject, but is necessary if we are to experience the freedom this letter proclaims.
