 Normalizing | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

One of the great sins of the American church has been its ability to normalize a myriad of sins. In a certain way, these sins have become part of an unstated and unwritten theology of practice.

 Conspiracy Theories | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

Cults and conspiracy theories are both founded on lies, but they also play heavily against people’s fears and insecurities. You could say that cult leaders use misinformation and paranoia to manipulate others to follow blindly after them. It almost sounds like a lot of pastors too. This isn’t a new occurrence, a Ponzi scheme as …

 From Me to We | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

 Cancel Culture | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

We are living in the glorious time of the cancel culture. Yes, most call it an overreaction to civil, cultural, and political events happening now, but I think it’s a beautiful thing. Conservative Evangelicals created a cancel culture against anything deemed counter to the faith, and the tactics of public shaming and boycott are now …

 American Horror Story | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

The world is on fire and my opinion doesn’t matter right now. This isn’t time for that. As a white person in America, this is the time for me to be silent and listen to those that are hurting. This is not a time to critique protesting or to offer alternative ways to seek justice …

 The Downward Ascent of Power | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

Power is overrated. Yet, if you look around you, you see a world scrounging for it. We want to be leaders and influencers. We want to be successful and renowned. So we spend our lives seeking power and ultimately, what we see as power becomes our God. When we look at the life of Jesus, …

In a few short years, the phrase “Fake News” has earned a place in dictionaries, in the national discourse, and our daily lives. But Fake News is not new. Fake News began when people first interpreted the Bible to advance their agenda. Commonly-held beliefs about what the Bible says regarding women, LGBTQ folks, slavery, immigrants, …

 A Common Sense Faith | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: Unknown

Christianity is weird, but it doesn’t have to be. Now, sure, it seems like weirdness is on-brand with Christianity, but that wasn’t the original posture. Yet today, the separation of church and reality is more distinctive and vast than the separation between church and state. The Bible doesn’t call for us to run away from …
