Deconstructing Shame: A Critique of Negative Sermons

Episode Summary: In this episode, we listen to a random sermon from a random church and discuss the negative effects of shame-based theology. The sermon left us feeling inadequate and unworthy, prompting us to explore the damaging impact of messages that reinforce the belief that we are “not good enough.” Through our conversation, we offer insight into how to move beyond shame and cultivate a more compassionate and empowering faith.

⭐ Note: Utterly Heretical is a separate podcast we do for supporters of the show through Patreon. It’s more conversational, completely unedited, and we share more stories. We’d love for you to check it out!
