Episodes

29. Broad and Narrow Gates

9/24/2018
More
Have you ever thought, “I want to believe, but I just can’t?” Jesus says that few people will find his “narrow way.” Let’s think about doubt, belief, trust, destruction and gates on the next QCP.

28. Kingdom Economics

9/1/2018
More
Was Jesus a capitalist or a socialist? In the Sermon on the Mount, he invites his followers to join a new society - the Kingdom of Heaven. Let's discuss Jesus' economic plan for how this society is supposed to work; a financial system based on asking, seeking, and knocking. #QuestioningChristianity

Duration:00:33:59

27. Money and Judgement

8/11/2018
More
Uh oh. We missed a big question in last week's episode! Jesus says, "all these things will be added to you." Is that a prosperity promise? Then he goes on to talk about judging others. Is this a good episode? Well, you be the judge. #QuestioningChristianity

26. Money Worries

7/29/2018
More
Two guys who worry about money host a podcast about not worrying about money. Let's see what the red letters have to say about it. #QuestioningChristianity

Duration:00:34:45

25. Red Letters Part 8: Spiritual Disciplines

7/16/2018
More
Rob trains for a marathon, and Dan learns the hard way that his Hemi needs gas. We also talk about the Red Letters some more - from Matthew 6 - where Jesus describes the spiritual disciplines of giving to the needy, prayer and fasting.

Duration:00:52:11

Persecution and Patriotism

7/1/2018
More
This mini-episode is actually a segment from show #24 "Gospel" which was cut out because of time. Rob describes why the early church suffered persecution on account of the Gospel. It wasn't because they were teaching about a way to get into Heaven; it was because they were preaching Jesus is Lord. The Emperor didn't appreciate that. What are the ramifications of misaligned allegiance today?

24. Gospel - Your Ticket to Heaven

6/24/2018
More
Many Christians believe that the Gospel refers to the minimal entrance requirements for Heaven. This so called “Good News” has been reduced to a ticket for a space ride off of Planet Earth when our bodies die. But what if it’s more than that? What if it’s about how heaven is coming to earth? What was the first century church’s understanding of Gospel? Are there better ways for us to think about it in the 21st century? Let’s talk about it - #QuestioningChristianity.

23. Red Letters Part 7 - Adultery and Divorce

6/1/2018
More
The red letters turn scarlet this week - sex, adultery, lust, and divorce. Do these ancient Jewish “sex laws” apply to our modern culture? Or is this just another example of fundamentalist legalism? Here’s a hint: we don’t really know, but we hope you’ll join us in wrestling with the red letters on the latest Questioning Christianity podcast.

Duration:00:38:40

22. Red Letters Part 6 - Enemy Love

5/20/2018
More
You’re right - legalistic Christians are the worst! But Jesus isn't concerned about rules; he's in the life transformation business. People who take his words seriously discover shalom...peace, healing, and wholeness. One of those shalom-instilling teachings of Jesus is “love your enemies.” It's harder than it sounds (and it sounds really hard!). Join us at the table on #QuestioningChristianity.

Duration:00:40:10

21. Red Letters Part 5 - Spiritual Formation

5/6/2018
More
Jesus wanted his followers to become fully developed human beings. In this episode we discuss why he was so intense about this process and the spiritual practices Christians have used though the ages to make room for spiritual formation.

Duration:00:43:45

20. Red Letters Part 4 - Fulfilling of the law

4/23/2018
More
Jesus makes a disclaimer: "I haven't come to abolish the Law or the Prophets, but to fulfill them." The Law was supposed to protect justice, ensure mercy, and show the world God's character, but it deteriorated into a broken, abusive religious system that devoured widows' houses. Jesus makes the law complete on the latest #QuestioningChristianity.

Duration:00:38:54

19. Red Letters Part 3 - Salt and Light

4/6/2018
More
Parents have dreams for their children. According to ancient Judaism, God has a dream for his children and the world he created. The dream is for the world to live in shalom and for human beings to flourish. So what do the metaphors of “salt” and “light” from Jesus’ teachings have to do with God’s dream? Listen to this episode to find out.

Duration:00:31:39

18. Red Letters Part 2 - The Beatitudes

3/23/2018
More
The beatitudes are not instructions. They are cheers for the underdogs, healing for the wounded, blessings for those who feel cursed. Dan and Rob discuss it in the latest Questioning Christianity Podcast.

Duration:00:36:43

17. Gun Control & Violence

2/27/2018
More
Does the Bible offer any insight into the issue of gun control? Well, not exactly, but Jesus did have some things to say about weapons and violence. Join us for a special edition of Questioning Christianity.

Duration:00:22:05

2/5/2018
More
Check out the first in a series of episodes inspired book "Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said? by Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo. We'll look at the conversation Jesus had with Nicodemus. What does it mean to be born again? Plus, Dan and Rob provide 2 wrong Super Bowl predictions, just in time for the Monday after the Super Bowl.

Duration:00:39:11

Duration:00:41:27

13. Advent Questions

12/21/2017
More
Rob and Dan follow up on questions you submitted about last week's Advent episode: • Why did the Gospel writers include Jesus's birth and not his childhood? • What about the virgin birth? • Do you believe in the second coming of Jesus? • If Mary was revolutionary, why didn't Jesus lead a revolution?

Duration:00:43:27

12. The Advent Revolution

12/15/2017
More
