Exploring Christianity at the cutting edge

Dec 30, 2015

Ever meet a Pharisee? They do everything right but the most important thing. And the most important thing is LOVE.

Dec 22, 2015

There is a lot more to loving God than saying you do. That's a good start, but there is much more to it. This is the first installment of my book "Loving God."

Dec 15, 2015

Much of modern Christianity would be revolutionized if we kept in mind some of Emerson's admonitions. The conclusion to Emerson's masterpiece, his essay on Self-Reliance. 

Dec 8, 2015

What God has told others to do is interesting. What God has told you to do is life changing. Hear what Emerson has to say about this.

Dec 1, 2015

The most important thing anyone can do is to follow your intuition. The New Testament calls this being led by the Spirit. With this, there is life. Without this, there is death.

Nov 24, 2015

What a revolutionary idea Emerson has here, to say what you really think. Religion doesn't like this behavior, but Jesus loved it because that's how he lived his life.

Nov 18, 2015

Conformity is the common sin of humankind according to Emerson. Listen to Emerson explain why.

Nov 11, 2015

Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay on Self Reliance presents many startling truths embraced by Christianity better than most Christian literature. This is amazing considering Emerson, by his own admission, was not a Christian!

We all need a break from our obsessive compulsive thinking, thinking, thinking. The most wonderful way for me to do this is SYMA.

Tradition is second hand religion. It is what was meaningful to someone else who lived long ago in a much different culture. The problem is, it can become outdated, irrelevant, and yes, BORING. See what Jesus Christ had to say about tradition.

Oct 20, 2015

Both Paul and Jesus made some shocking statements about exactly who we are in God's eyes. Find out who you are, and what your status is with God.

Oct 13, 2015

This is who you are! Not many Christians believe it, but it's true. Stop trying to be who everyone else wants you to be, and just be who you are.

Oct 6, 2015

Religion can be about hiding the real you from others so they will approve of you. Instead, why don't you decide to be the person God made you to be?

Sep 29, 2015

You'll be surprised at the one requirement Jesus had for his initial leaders. And this trait is not valued by most of the Christian church.

Sep 22, 2015

Religion often implies that God doesn't think much of you. But, Jesus Christ made several amazing statements about you that you need to know about.

Sep 16, 2015

In Jesus' day many religious leaders, in his view, did not know God. It's the same today.

Sep 9, 2015

God cancelled the law and nailed it to the cross of Jesus. (Col. 2:15) But many in religion don't realize that. God is not into the law, God is into grace.

Sep 1, 2015

The Jesus found in the gospels is a lot different than the Jesus often portrayed by some in organized religion. There were super religious people in Jesus' day that thought they were more holy than Jesus was. Imagine that!

Aug 25, 2015

It is amazing what Jesus said about some of the most religious people in his society. Find out what is crucial to God.

Aug 16, 2015

We develop our friendship with God exactly the same way we become friends with anyone. We are around them, we talk to them, and they talk to us. Learn how to develop an intimate relationship with God by PTPOG, Practicing The Presence Of God.

Aug 11, 2015

A sure sign you are in the grip of second hand religion is the presence of boredom. Learn how to shake off second hand religion and embrace first hand religion, which is a friendship with God.

Aug 5, 2015

The Gospels are not dead history. And Jesus' attitude towards the organized religion of His day is exactly the attitude He has today. Learn why.

Jul 28, 2015

I didn't think Episode 13 that I previously recorded was helpful enough to a general audience, so I have decided not to publish it.

Jul 28, 2015

Jesus' attitude towards the man made religion of the first century is exactly his attitude toward the man made religion of today. Are you tired of religion? So is God.

Jul 21, 2015

Religion can be a substitute for knowing God the being who created you. Religion has never saved anyone, but knowing God can!
