Happiness - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

12/17/2017

Happiness “What has happened to Walker?” asked Susan. Connie’s friend from work had come over to sit on the porch and watch the sun set. “What do you mean?” asked Connie. “I saw him yesterday at the Lumber Depot,” said Susan. It’s like he’s a new man. So full of life. Don’t get me wrong. He’s always been a good guy. But lately it seems like he really enjoys his job. Yesterday I was looking for some light bulbs and he greeted me like I was his long lost friend.” Connie laughed. “I know! I...

The Meaning of Life - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

Chapter 6: The Meaning of Life It had been nine months since Lizzie’s death. Walker was working in his aisle at the Lumber Depot, rearranging extension cords. His old depression had set in. He stared at the coil of orange extension cord in his hand. Everything seemed so meaningless. It wasn’t that his life was all that bad. Lizzie’s death was still a wound but there were days when it was becoming tolerable. Angela was right. Every now and then he even smiled. Amy and Angela’s gift had...

Three weeks later, Walker was eating lunch in the break room. Angela sat down across the table and opened her lunch sack. They discussed the new company policy of wearing hot pink targets on the front of their work aprons that proclaimed “Ask me! I’m your man!” “I'm not even a man!” laughed Angela. “And I look terrible in hot pink,” shot back Walker. “Who comes up with this stuff? “Corporate I suppose,” answered Angela. “I'm sure it sounded great at the company retreat. I can almost...

It was 7:00 PM when Walker finally got home from the hospital. He ate a cold sandwich and went straight to bed. For the first time since the accident he slept soundly. It was nearly 9:00 AM when his phone began to buzz. He silenced it and pulled the covers over his head. It buzzed again. It was Connie. She had left a message. He skipped the message and called her. “Good morning honey, what's up?” “Lizzie is dead.” “What?” he said, trying to process her words. “She had a massive hemorrhage...

Walker knew they were Christ’s words from the cross. Was it Jesus? He felt love in them. But it didn’t change anything. “Do you even care?” said walker into the air, not expecting an answer. “Yes, my child.” said a Voice. “More than you can possibly know.” “I know you died on the cross for my...

The Disciples - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

10/22/2017
More
Summary: Jesus’ followers enjoyed a deep connection rooted in their commitment to follow Jesus. They shared their lives but did not try to “disciple” each other. The Teacher dealt with each person uniquely, allowing freedom. Most people today are lonely. Over the course of their life, the average person changes jobs twelve times and will move eleven times. We live in gated communities with fenced yards. Even in apartment complexes people tend to run from their cars to their doors like...

Summary: What we call "church" is a product of western civilization that comes with a lot of cultural baggage. It is one way to follow Christ but not the only way.

Summary: Our world is in agony but we live in hope of God’s triumph. In a way we cannot yet see, even evil will be used for good.

Did Adam Ride a Dinosaur? - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

8/6/2017
More
Summary: The Creation stories of Genesis 1-11 form an essential foundation for life in the Kingdom of God. They are true but are not part of human history. The enlightenment replaced these marvelous stories with the dull story of the eternal cosmos. The result is an emptiness that we all feel everywhere.

The Resurrection: More Than a Postscript - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

7/23/2017
More
Summary: When I believed in the life boat gospel, I could not explain the importance of the resurrection. The death of Jesus flipped the lever to get me into heaven so the resurrection seemed like a nice but unnecessary postscript. Through the lens of the Kingdom I now realize that the resurrection was the arrival of the Kingdom of God and the first day of new creation.

Summary: Heaven is not a place I go when I die. It is a mysterious realm that is part of my existence right now. My problem is not that I can’t get into heaven.

The One Thing Jesus Asks from Us Gets Lost in Translation! - Curb Your Dogma: Where we leave the beaten path to follow Christ

6/25/2017
More
Summary: The Greek word pistis (πιστις) is usually translated “belief” or “faith.” This badly misses Jesus’ intent. A much better translation (and way to live!) is “trust.” Trust opens the doors to the Kingdom of God, here and now. Three Ways to Get More From This Week's Podcast Read the show notes below.
