While not a pastors wife I have come across many of those same issues. To have someone literally speak out loud the same thoughts I have wrestled with is so... refreshing, so honest. It's a blessing to know also I'm not alone!
Mike/Susan, I just really want you two to know, what a blessing this episode was, 5 regrets, because you two spoke about things that I have brought up to those “in charge” and I was an outcast because of it. Many many things you guys talked about today I totally agree with, and for so many years I thought I was alone in my thinking. So, thank you! Hope we can re-connect sometime soon.
I LOVED the Tyndale series. It was so good I immediately bought the book. This is another fantastic Grace podcast. I am so thankful for podcasts like this.
Hey Mike, loved your series on the five words that got William Tyndale killed! Very well done, encouraging and a unique approach to the biography. Thank you for putting it together. Your friend and brother in the gospel, el otro Miguel
This podcast digs into scripture to examine our beliefs about “church”. I find the questions asked insightful, and the scripture given to support the answers offered accurately applied and helpful. If you are on a journey of examining our cultural “church” context in search of a deeper and more scripturally based enjoyment of Christian community, this podcast should prove helpful.
As a child raised Sunday School and every bible study I have come to have am any questions in my adulthood. I am very grateful to have found this podcast to help me flourish and research deeper into my faith. This podcast is uncomfortable, especially if you are currently apart of a church that subscribes to what he discusses in the podcast. However, he opens up dialogue that many DONT. Great listen!
I love how the host and his guests dissect traditions in the church to see whether traditions (and theological stances like tithing) are biblical, cultural or simply handed down because it’s tradition. He challenges us to examine scripture in context and isn’t afraid to ask hard questions.
