Did your mind go to a political figure? Or did it go deeper? Have you grown up believing that all the corruption and evil in the world prove that it belongs to Satan? In today’s podcast and post, our series reveals that was not what Jesus meant.
Join me now as we walk with Jesus and his disciples to the Garden and listen in to these famous last words where we will see beyond everything and discover just whose world this actually is.
“What makes a person ‘Spiritual?’ What do people mean when they talk about the Holy Spirit?”
In today’s podcast and post we continue in our study of Jesus’ Famous Last Words with a look at his promise: ‘I will ask the Father and He will send a Helper.’ What could this have meant to the disciples at that time, and what does it mean for us today?
Join me now as we deconstruct this promise from within the context of this passage and discover that a spiritual life is not something we possess or live to get, but something we are and a place from which we live.
Many of us have heard Jesus’ promise that we would do greater works than he did, or that he would give us anything if we asked for it in his name. The question for us today is: Why do so few of us believe it?
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series examining Jesus’ Famous Last Words and his promise that “You shall do greater works than these…” You’ll learn the four most common ways people interpret this promise.

“Can you imagine a country which is led by a king or leader who is humble and deeply concerned over his or her failures?”
In today’s podcast and post we return to our ongoing series “Psalms Greatest Hits” with a look at the thirtieth psalm. This psalm was prepared for a large public and even political display and we find no trace of blame, media spin, propaganda, or damage control. Instead, we find a leader who longed for all his people to experience and access the same spiritual awakening as him. Join me now as we examine a short psalm with some powerful and lasting verses, which are needed now more than ever.
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.

“What does it mean for God’s house to have many rooms?
For most of church history we’ve been told that many rooms mean that God lives in a mansion. This has spun off into everyone getting a mansion in Heaven one day. What does all this really mean?
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series examining Jesus’ famous last words. Join me now as we double click into this passage and uncover the ontological center behind these words and see the set-up which Church history has largely ignored
Not only do all world religions share in common some version of the “Golden Rule,” but in every strata of human existence, there is agreement that loving others is the morally superior posture to which humanity must strive. In Today’s podcast and post we continue our look at Jesus’ last words where his disciples were admonished to love one another.
Join me now as we see beyond the world’s agreement that we should love one another, and discover that the reason we don’t, is that we can’t.
“What do you think it means to be a Christian or to belong to a Church?”
We’re all aware of the stereotype. We’ve all seen their “John 3:16” posters at ball games, and we can all bear witness to the TV and Radio programs that proliferate in our culture. Is all of this what Jesus had in mind when he departed from his disciples?

In today’s podcast and post we begin a series called Famous Last Words where we explore the last bits of advice that Jesus gave his disciples right before he was crucified. Though we’ve heard these stories many times, this series will endeavor to illuminate a new perspective that will transport us back into the upper room.
Join me now as we see beyond our religious and political propaganda and regain a sense of what was really said be for Jesus was killed by the institutions of Religion and State.
“What change if any would you really like to see this coming year?”
While the New Year ushers in hope for many people, it creates a low-grade sense of despair for many more. A lifetime of failed resolutions in the past makes us hesitant and doubtful about lasting change for the future. In today’s podcast and post we examine this ongoing quagmire between our aspirational life and the one we seek to change.
Join me now as we see beyond the fictional existence of the life and self we may never get to be, and how we can live authentically without settling for a life of despair.
