Episode 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.

Episode 22: Red Letters Part 5 - 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.

Episode 20: Red Letters Part 4 - Fulfillment 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.

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.

Episode 18: Red Letters Part 2 - The Beatitudes

3/23/2018

Episode 10: The Kingdom of God (Part 2)

12/2/2017
More
Like yeast in dough, the kingdom of God is growing from small beginnings. A kingdom worldview forces us to change the way we treat others - including through social media.
