I’ve decided that I’ve found the worst behavior on social media. It isn’t vaguebooking, or selling snake oil. It’s something I’ve named the Billy Goat Post. I also talk about the dynamics of multi-racial and international adoption and why you shouldn’t use children as a prop. Finally, I utter words I didn’t imagine I’d find myself with the courage to speak; William Lane Craig is wrong. I react to an article he wrote on Reasonable Faith.org. I dive in deep and explain why Dr. Craig’s thinking is not only simplistic, it’s wrong.
When Christians were encouraged to worship God, did that mean they had to go to a $10 million, temperature-controlled auditorium that can seat a thousand people? Is that the only way to have church in a pandemic?
The very idea of being a human is about to be a giant question mark. How will you face the options presented to you by technology? Plus I want you to know that you’ve actually been watching space westerns.
Confession: I’ve come to realize I was wrong about something. It’s no set up for a punchline. It’s the truth and I’m not sure how to fix it. Also included are some fun facts about Alfred Hitchcock and the true story of the Washington Redskins.
I dive into the indubitably refreshing perspective that All Lives Matter and how I’m handling calls to “Defund the Police”. But most importantly I push over some sacred cows and illuminate the difference between civil religion and Christianity. I promise you’ll hear our National Anthem in a new way and think of me whenever you swear on a Bible.
In this episode I practice the spiritual discipline of being quick to listen and slow to speak. Highlighted are four black voices reflecting on the death of George Floyd and the protests and riots that followed. Listen to Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Killer Mike, Dr. Cornel West and Pastor Miles McPherson.
My guest host does the heavy lifting this week by describing the differences in enabling and helping in a disaster situation. Plus, prepare yourself for the next phase of social media outrage. You haven’t seen anything yet. . . but at least you can be prepared.
A quick overview of all the conspiracy theories surrounding Covid-19. With a special focus on the theories most popular in the United States: The Virus was created in a Chinese Lab, 5G Cell phone towers are causing people to get sick, and Bill Gates is an evil mastermind.
Like everyone else in the world, we have an opinion on Tiger King but it’s unlike any you’ve heard. Plus we take down some Coronavirus conspiracies and explain why projections are making all the decisions in our lives right now.
Special Guest, Wendy, joins me as we banter about life in a pandemic. We discuss the origins and consequences on Covid-19. What’s driving us crazy on social media? What are we doing to protect ourselves and help other people?
