420- Rome 1- Freedom from Fundamentalism

“How well do you understand the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Romans? If you are like most people, the answer is; “Not too well.”

In today’s podcast and post we begin a new series examining the book of Romans. While this may seem like a daunting task, laden with layers of theological complexity, that assumption only means we have bought into fundamentalism’s propaganda.

Join me now as we rediscover Romans without two thousand years of Church history spackled on top of it. We’ll learn that this letter was intended to get “everyone” out of religion, not  lock us into one.

414-Marriage Tune Up 2- Establish or Empty Oneself

“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.

412-The Advent of Unbelief

“Have you ever had a question or doubt about your religion or its view on the world? Have you ever felt oppressed or hurt by your system of faith?

In today’s podcast and post we conclude the second half of our Advent series by discussing how Christ appears to us through what religion calls…unbelief

Join me now as we see beyond the manipulative power plays that religion hoists upon us and explore how the Gospel never puts us into religion, and instead, the advent of Christ becomes that voice which leads us out.

408-7-The Church of Little Faith

“Do you believe “faith healers” are for real, or have most of them been proven to be a big scam?”

Today we continue our series deconstructing church history with a look at one of the biggest promises in the bible; that with just a little faith we could literally move mountains. What does it say about our modern faith, if Jesus own disciples couldn’t heal a sick boy?

Join me now as we see beyond the common assumptions as to why modern churches lack miracle working power, and discover that healing isn’t a gift bestowed for our spiritual stature, but a function of finding ourselves in God.

404-4-The Bind and Loose Blueprint

“What did Jesus mean when he said he would give Peter the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven? Why do we have so many pastors, priests, and religious leaders who hold so strongly to institutional authority?

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series examining the church Jesus said he would build and comparing it to the business of modern religion. 

Join me now as we discover that the authority of Jesus true church is not from institutional power or religion, but by Christ himself and it is given to all those in faith just as it was to Peter.

397-4-Shadow and Image

“Do you know the difference between and image and a shadow?

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our series entitled; “A Course in Darkness” with an examination of the metaphors of an image and a shadow. Throughout human history, we have tried a million different things to free ourselves from our dark side, or our shadow yet nothing has ever worked.

Join me now as I explain why moralism, psychology, religion, and denial have no power over our shadow, and how we can be restored to an image.

396-3-The Purpose of Darkness

“What is the purpose of our human darkness and all the suffering that comes from it?

In today’s podcast and post, I continue in our series called “A Course in Darkness” where I will explore the purpose of our darkness. I’ll prove how a person who rejects God because of all the meaningless suffering in the world, is actually complicit to that suffering.

Join me now as we discover the purpose of darkness and how it reveals not only our state of weakness, but also our role in restoring the world with the light of God.

395-2-The Darkness of God

“Why has no religion nor spiritual pursuit in the history of humanity ever successfully eradicated humanity from our dark side?”

Think about it. How successful has your own spiritual process been? In today’s podcast and post we continue our series entitled “A Course in Darkness” with an examination of God’s darkness.

Join me now as we see beyond our flimsy theologies, our tribal notions, and failed prayers, to gain a transformative perspective of the Darkness of God.

392-7-Rethinking Judgment

“Do you believe there will be a great judgment day where God will judge everyone?” If so, what do you believe is going to happen? 

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series with a closer look at Judgment Day. The bible does talk about this event, but when we look closer, we discover nuances that are often missed which are vital to the discussion.

Join me now as we re-consider Judgment Day from the perspective of restoration rather than retribution.

391-6-The Dilemma Resolved…Differently

“What happens when institutional power insists we believe something in only one particular way? 

In today’s podcast and post I provide a biblical roadmap for an alternative orthodoxy. Class is in session and this course in Hell opens up a new way of seeing what happens to so-called bad people. What happens in the afterlife if instead of twisting the bible, we straighten it out?

Join me now as we see beyond the threats of Hell by religion, and examine what the bible has been saying all along.
