    Spiritual or Religious? | Baron & David

    Spiritual or Religious? | Baron & David

    Spiritual Shift: Real Talk
    Baron and David rip into the dark underbelly of "cancel culture" and the pervasive "toxic positivity" that's bleeding into every corner of our social fabric. In this episode they lay it all out on the line, dissecting how these societal cancers are not just trending hashtags but real issues that stifle growth, creativity, and genuine self-expression. 

    Baron looks at America's seismic shift towards "spirituality vs. religion." In a world obsessed with "mindfulness meditation" and "wellness routines," Baron and David confront the positives of good religion and what it truly means to find spiritual grounding in an era defined by "digital age" distractions and the movement away from traditional religion. They tap into the zeitgeist, exploring "spiritual awakening" and "personal growth”, making it crystal clear why embracing "emotional intelligence" and "conscious living" isn't just trendy—it's essential.

Great listen for those who aren’t closed minded

Fabulous show that I can’t say enough good things about! I appreciate Baron & David for sharing their wisdom, remaining unafraid, and tackling hard topics and conversations. I applaud them for standing firm in their beliefs, and sharing perspectives that aren’t always supported by the mainstream. Yes, Baron occasionally references the Bible, and it saddens me to see the number of negative reviews because of that. Many idioms and phrases in our everyday vernacular are traced back to the Bible, such as “Let there be light”; “fall from grace”; “forbidden fruit”. I challenge those folks who get set-off by a reference to a Bible verse to close their mouths and open their ears. I support Baron and David as they continue to stay true to their beliefs, leading from a place of curiosity and integrity. And for all the nefarious reviews on here, you know what they say…”If you ain’t got not haters you ain’t poppin”
