I came across a fascinating article the other day in a most unexpected place – – where the author decided to actually ask people why they decided to deconstruct their faith. Be sure to read the entire article. It’s great. But there was one thing that really jumped out at me in that article that inspired me to write this post. In the article, they asked people who had deconstructed their Christian faith and left the church what they... Read more

  Saying 47: Jesus said, “A person cannot (at the same time) mount two horses or draw two bows. And a slave cannot serve two masters, but truly will honor the one and scoff at the other. No person drinks vintage wine and immediately desires

  Saying 46: Jesus said, “From Adam unto John the Baptist there has been none among the offspring of women who has been more exalted than John the Baptist, so that such a person’s eyes might be broken. But I have said that whoever among

The Governor of Tennessee, Bill Lee, just signed a law aimed at criminalizing drag events in his state. Not only is that likely to encourage more anti-LGBTQI+ violence, it’s also an elaborate distraction from the very real problems facing the people who live in Tennessee. See, politicians love to distract people with things that are not actual problems so they can appear like heroes when they solve those “problems” and make it look like they’re actually doing something of substance... Read more

  SAYING 45: Jesus said, “Grapes are not harvested from thorn trees, nor are figs gathered from thorn bushes, for those do not bear fruit. Good people produce good from their store. Evil people produce wicked things from their evil store within their hearts, and

Let’s be honest. Conservative Christianity isn’t known for producing great works of art. Especially when it comes to film. We’ve had to hide our faces in shame and squirm in our seats over everything from those youth-group fear-mongering rapture horror flicks like Thief In The Night and the Left Behind films, to the easy-answer, “Just-become-a-Christian-and-watch-your-problems-disappear” plotlines in straight-to-DVD schlock like Fireproof and God’s Not Dead.  But this latest film – Jesus Revolution – takes things just a little too far.... Read more

  In the very first book of the Bible, we read the story of how God first created all things. When it comes to the part about how God created humankind, we read that the original human had both male and female existing within the same body, and that this gender-full human was “made in the image of God.” What do I mean? Well, in Genesis we’re told that God created mankind in God’s own image. But, later, when no... Read more

  “The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.” -Leo M. Tolstoy (The Kingdom of God is Within You) I can remember the first time I read through Tolstoy’s manifesto. It was the first... Read more

SAYING 43: His disciples said to him, “Who are you, since you say these things to us?” Jesus said to them, “Do you not understand who I am from the things I am saying to you? Rather, you have come to be like the Judeans.
