: “If I could show you how to avoid the pain of a bad relationship, would you actually consider my advice? Well, I can…but will you?
In today’s podcast and post we reach part 2 of our Marriage Tune Up with a comparison between two opposite philosophies about marriage. In one the focus is the development of self, the other is the death of self.
Join me now as we see why the real divorce rate is almost as high as the marriage rate, and I offer a five minute fix to every marriage that almost no one will try.
“Is it a big deal that this podcast has reached its 400th episode?
In today’s podcast and post, I reflect on why I spent the last few weeks s in a funk and a quandary about this 400thpodcast. Thanks to the help of my audience and virtual community, I’m back to share with whoever may come, what makes this work so special.
Join me now as I riff about why this podcast remains unpopular and is only a big deal to a subset of our world.
“Does each religion have its own god? Is one religion better than another? Which God can beat up all the other gods?”
These questions are common in the minds of those who do not know the Bible. In today’s podcast and post we continue our series by examining the assumptions about Hell which fuel our competitive religions.
Join me now as we see beyond the claims that picking the right religion is the only way to God, and discover the only thing that has ever allowed any human to know anything about their Maker, and why religion hates it so much.
“Who gave you your definition of Hell? If it came from Institutional Religion, then it’s likely very different than the teachings of the bible.
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series as I reveal how Church history, fiction and Hollywood have created a version of Hell that is irresistible to economies of religion. By displacing Hell solely to another dimension after we die, Hell’s captivity keeps expanding through invisibility.
Join me now as I reveal the Hell Jesus taught about, and how that helps us see how our modern assumptions about Hell, are the most common forms of captivity in it.
“How well do we really know ourselves? Why do you suppose our world is so focused on “identity” while it simultaneously divorces itself from God?”
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.
“Do you feel like our world is heading in the right direction?
This is not merely a political question. It’s much bigger. In today’s podcast and post, I will continue in our series of Psalms Greatest Hits with a look at the 127th Psalm. All of human history has ideas about how our cities and countries should be governed.
Join me now as we compare the trajectory of this simple Psalm to the trajectory of the modern world and test if there is any part of us which is able to see beyond everything.
“Do we really want forgiveness if it means we have to forgive others?”
Today we continue our series of Seeing Beyond the Parables with a look at the Unforgiving Servant. Our lives are completely infused with harsh, critical judgments on just about everything around us. We will examine why this appears to be an unchangeable reality.
Join me now as we discover the way out of our objective prison of condemnation, and discover the principle to which many pay lip service, but few can actually apply.
“Do you believe freedom is obtainable?” That’s a loaded question.
In today’s podcast, post, and video I will explore how freedom comes to us incrementally as we uncover the many layers of captivity which plague our lives. This means we are always chasing some new elusive form of freedom.
Join me now as we learn to see beyond our myopia and illusions about freedom in this life, and explore how ultimate freedom, which we can access now, will ultimately require our death.
“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.
