Welcome. I am Jimmy Humphrey. I am curiously evangelical, politically homeless, and a dreamer of small things. On this podcast, I am having conversations about the intersection of faith, life, and culture. So if you have honest questions, aren't afraid to have difficult conversations, and want to have a little fun along the way, then pull up a chair— this podcast is for you.
Why We Love To Blame Others (Especially When Life Sucks) – Episode #192
When life is good, we take all the credit. But when life sucks, we blame others. In this podcast, I look at why we instinctively formulate conspiracy theories against powerful people in smoke filled rooms, to explain why we can't have nice things...
Who Would Jesus Vote For? – Episode #191
Would Jesus vote for Republicans, or Democrats? Trump, or Biden? As I ponder our polarized political system, in today's podcast, I wonder... would Jesus even vote at all?
Father Forgive Them: Thoughts On The War Between Israel And Gaza – Episode #190
As tempting as it is to view the war between Israel and Gaza in black and white "good vs evil" type thinking, the issues are far more complex than that. In today's podcast, I attempt to look at both sides of the conflict in light of its greater historical context, as well as what I believe how some of the final words of Jesus Christ on the cross should shape our hearts and minds, as we try to understand this war as Christians.
The Church Has Become A Religious Show – Episode #189
According to pastor J.D. Greear, the church has become a "religious show." An irony, that many noticed, was lost on him as he preached from a giant platform with cameras and massive TV screens surrounding him. In today's podcast, I want to talk about the recent sermon clip that went viral, and what the church can learn from it...
Why Are There No UFO’s In A Trailer Park Somewhere?- Episode #188
Are aliens real? Have UFO's visited us? And what should we think of the testimony of Airforce Major David Grusch and his testimony before a house oversight committee stating that the U.S. Military has been in possession of UFO's since the 1930's? And what implications does the existence of aliens have for our faith as Christians?
I Don’t Want To “Own The Libs” – Episode #187
Among political conservatives, "owning the libs" might be a favorite activity. But it's not exactly a Christian behavior. In this podcast, I examine the toxic "own the libs" DNA that exists among the political right, and propose a bold alternative to this mentality...
Pushed me to think differently
I highly recommend this podcast from an authentic and thoughtful person… I consider myself a conservative evangelical and I have enjoyed hearing Jimmy’s perspective on so many things in life, religion, and politics.
