The Ongoing Crisis in Christianity Continues Apace.

I thought it was hilarious that this news comes out now, amid a Gallup poll showing that belief in Creationism is at its lowest point since Gallup began asking that question of Americans. But that’s not the only bad news for Christians. Come see the newest developments! [Read more…]

Church Planting Amid Iron Chariots.

This ancient story is way too potent of a reminder to Christians that their omnipotent god isn’t even a close second to the most powerful being in the universe even in his own mythology. Of course, we need not go so far as the Old Testament to see that simple truth. The regular failure of Christians’ wishes and plans could easily tell us that. [Read more…]

Pick a Gear: Selling Contradictions.

The marketers in broken systems have this unfortunate tendency to sell two different and diametrically opposed things to potential consumers. It’s not just a Christian thing; it happens in most broken systems. People in them don’t see that they’re doing it, and the people they’re selling to may not even realize that’s why they distrust the sellers and reject their product. But it happens all the same.

You Lost Me: And How They Lost Us.

David Kinnaman always couches Prodigals’ disbelief in terms of how they came to disbelieve. The exact stuff we don’t believe doesn’t interest him nearly as much as how we related to our last Christian group–and how we might relate to another in the future. [Read more…]

No, Christians. Your Churches Are Already Dead.

The Tell-Tale Heart of #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear.

I was even more interested in the responses to the stuff women are sharing on #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear. These responses reveal a lot about the religion and its direction–and why it is failing so fast and so hard. They are the reaction to a tell-tale heart in hashtag form. [Read more…]

Just a Little Bit of Racism in The Shack.

The Shack, the latest in a long line of Christian glurge movies and books, lives in that weird middle ground where Christians think they’re being progressive and yet turn out to be as locked in systemic racism as any of their peers. [Read more…]

The Handbook: What It’s Like to Roll to Disbelieve.

I thought that today–the most chocolate-y day of the year, so to speak–was a good day to bring everyone up to speed. I haven’t written about it in a long time and I’ve learned a lot since then. So today I want to show you what rolling to disbelieve is, and what it feels like to make your roll at last. [Read more…]

The Comfort of the Failed Sales Pitch.

There’s always a reason, in religion, for the stuff we see religious people doing. It might not be a great reason, no, but there’s always one there somewhere. Sometimes there are even several. Nowhere is that rule more in evidence than when we consider how terrible Christians are at selling their religion to others. [Read more…]
