The world watched as Brandt Jean hugged Amber Guyger, after she was sentenced for killing his brother, Botham. Many Christian’s rushed to share this as the perfect picture of the gospel of Jesus. But is forgiveness the gospel? We talk about justice, sweeping things under the rug and fixing the root problems.
This is an episode of Utterly Heretical, Nate and Tim’s second podcast for Patreon supporters. They have a candid conversation about the emotionally complicated topic of going to church.
Are we supposed to return to the supernatural "power" that we see in books like Acts and with the early church? Tim and Nate talk about their early ministry days, Holy Spirit as magic, and more.
We talk about our time in ministry in San Francisco and what bugs us about the Holy Spirit.
Parenting when your own faith is changing and evolving can be difficult. How much do you teach your child about God and the Bible? How do you have community if you're no longer at a church? We discuss these questions.
How do we hand a more open faith to our children? Nate and Tim talk about some general ideas they've thought through when it comes to parenting. Should we read the Bible to our children? We talk about Harry Potter, LGBTQ topics, and more.
Episode 5 - In episode 69 of Almost Heretical, Tim said he would make a list of all the ways we've grown ethically since the Bible was written/edited. Here's the list and a bit of discussion about it.
Now that we're understanding the Bible isn't a rule book telling us exactly how to live, we talk about learning to use our brains again to think through moral/ethical decisions.
