Exploring Christianity at the cutting edge

Jun 6, 2020

I start with Jesus' two verse long summary of what life is meant to be, which was given to a crowd of religious people who wanted to kill him.  I end with the warning signs of an unhealthy, disfunctional church. If you've had an uneasiness about your current church, listen as I discuss what happens to a Christian church when religious people control it.

Religion always works from a script. But God is the original Free Spirit who is not constrained by religion's scripts. No surprise that God's Son is a Free Spirit who regularly went off religion's scripts. Listen as I discuss two people who lead to Jesus going off religion's script. The first was a so-called immoral woman, the second a hopeless invalid, who meet Morality and Hope incarnated. 

May 23, 2020

Jesus disregards silly religious rules.  He constantly violates other people's religious rules, and He clearly has no regard for these rules. Jesus talks to the poster child for organized religion in  Judea, and Jesus is not impressed with him.  Listen as I discuss the type of "religion" God has in mind for the human race. 

May 16, 2020

This is the ultimate cage fight: God vs. An Extremely Religious Person. Guess who wins? Nicodemus knew a lot, but he doesn't know God very well, and he completely missed what God was working to do in his country.

May 9, 2020

Jesus, God incarnate, "cleansed the temple," as some call it.  But I call it a premeditated physical attack on bad organized religion. Resisting evil, God's heart, bad religion 2,000 years ago, bad religion today, religious cults, and religious bigotry are all discussed.

May 2, 2020

The bigger question is whether God sent the Black Plague in the Middle Ages, which killed 1/3 of Europe. Listen as I answer one of the biggest questions on Planet Earth right now.

Apr 25, 2020

Getting better at discerning the still small voice of the Spirit is the whole point of life. Listen as I discuss how to get to know the Spirit better than you do now. This just might save your life some day.

Apr 18, 2020

For 2,000 years the Christian Church has made little effort to teach the Holy Spirit. And this sparse teaching has been remarkably ineffective considering the person being taught. Listen as I discuss why the Holy Spirit can't really be taught, the Spirit must be caught.

Apr 11, 2020

No shortage of bad news these days. But I've got good news for you. I've got a solution for you, the Ultimate Solution.

Mar 21, 2020

Why do some people do things like hoarding? I explain from the perspective of a brain scientist. In fact, I explain why we are all so predictably negative.

Mar 14, 2020

God created the Universe through the Logos Principle. When we employ the Logos principle, our lives get more life. And when we do not employ the Logos principle, our lives unravel. Listen as I relate how I employed this Principle recently and hear how it changed my life. You, just as God did, can create your own Universe.

Mar 7, 2020

It's a whole lot easier to just go to church, than to develop and maintain an intimate friendship with God. Listen as I talk about how historical Christianity has almost completely misunderstood "faith" and what God really means by "faith." "Faith" is not so much what you believe, as who you trust in.

Feb 29, 2020

We are all prisoners in jails we have constructed in our own minds. Listen as I talk about one gigantic step we can all take toward more sanity for ourselves, and our world. Here's how we can all start our life over again.

Feb 22, 2020

We get upset when God tests us, but this week I remember that Jesus the Christ himself was tested by God before he began his public ministry. This testing is necessary, so listen why it is necessary.

Feb 1, 2020

What is your worldview? Your worldview is critical because it colors everything you look at and it determines what you see and what you can't see. Which worldview do you have?

Jan 26, 2020

I explain God's Great Christ Project which you have never heard about, along with: how to forgive your father, what is salvation according to the Buddha, the prevalence of contention in Christianity, and lastly a salvation that transforms people as opposed to simply giving them a ticket to Heaven. 

Jan 18, 2020

I explain how to do Centering Prayer, which I've been doing for about 30 years. This practice has revolutionized my walk with God. I pray that it will help you too.

Jan 11, 2020

St. Augustine and the anonymous author of the classic 14th Century devotional book, "The Cloud of Unknowing" both recommend a type of prayer and intimacy with God which doesn't involve using words or thoughts. Listen as I discuss this revolutionary and life changing way to relate to God.

Jan 4, 2020

I begin working through the Dhammapada, a Buddhist scripture and compare and contrast it with my faith, which is Christianity. The ethical teachings are almost shockingly identical.
