Jesus Was not an Evangelical nor a Conservative Roman Catholic Bishop: He Did Not “Believe in the Bible” nor in “The Church”

Jesus never could have been the pastor of an evangelical church nor a conservative Roman Catholic bishop. Evangelicals and conservative Roman Catholics thrive on drawing distinctions between their "truth" and other people's failings. Jesus by contrast, set off an empathy time bomb that obliterates difference.Jesus' empathy bomb explodes every time a former evangelical puts love ahead of what the "Bible says." It goes off every time Pope Francis puts inclusion ahead of dogma. It goes off … [Read more...]

“Dear Frank, Thanks to you, as a Jew I can say that I am a follower of Jesus”

Titled "Why I Am Absolutely Islamaphobic" by Gary Cass, the … [Read more...]

Embracing paradox helped me discover that religion is a neurological disorder for which faith is the only cure

My kaleidoscopic beliefs are fickle and motivated by desire, wishful thinking, and wanting to fit in with my family and community and to make my marriage work. My dogmatic declarations of faith once provided status, ego-stroking power over others and a much better income than I’ve ever earned since fleeing the evangelical machine. Certainty made things simple, gave me an answer to every question and paid the bills.With the acceptance of paradox came a new and blessed uncertainty that began t … [Read more...]

Christianity Today is scared of Peggy, Tony and Bart Campolo (and me) and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively

Christianity Today is scared of Tony, Peggy and Bart Campolo and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively so they won't turn out like Bart.The "method" is always the same. Bart isn't a Christian anymore so we need to blame his parents (while pretending not to) and improve the way we indoctrinate our kids lest they turn out like Bart or worse yet, like Frank Schaeffer.To do that the first thing we have to do is lie about them, dismiss the backsliders and make … [Read more...]
