    02 - You Have No Idea: Exploring Christian Suicide with Steve Austin and Robert Vore

    When someone dies by suicide, do they go to hell? In this episode we explore that question through the stories of Andrew Stoecklein, Amy Bleuel, and Matthew Warren, three notable christians who’ve recently died by suicide.

    We also talk to Steve Austin, author of “Catching Your Breath” and “From a Pastor to a Psych Ward,” about his near death by suicide, as well as therapist and co-host of the CXMH podcast, Robert Vore, on how the church can help.

    01 - You've Been Left Behind: The Rapture with Zack Hunt

    Jason reveals to Alex that he set up a “left behind” scenario for the youth group which resulted in many tearful conversions to Christ. Alex berates the practice saying that the scare tactic isn’t the best way to lead people to the Lord. Jason disagrees and thus they consult their time machine to peer into the future church to settle the argument. In this episode they interview Zack Hunt author of “Unraptured: How End Times Theology Gets it Wrong" Out now on Amazon Connect with Zack Hunt https://www.facebook.com/zaackhunt/ https://twitter.com/ZaackHunt Connect with NYPP Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @notyourpastors Support us to get access to full length interviews for just 1 dollar a month patreon.com/notyourpastors For a full list of sources used in the making of this podumentary, please visit www.notyourpastors.com

    87 - Excommunication and Renewal With Brandon Carleton

    87 - Excommunication and Renewal With Brandon Carleton

    After growing up religious and then leaving his faith behind, Pastor Brandon Carleton started to feel like he was throwing the baby out with the bathwater. After years of deconstructing, then reconstructing his beliefs, he began to ask questions like: Is there a way to cut through religious dogma and create authentic community? What would it look like to lead from a position of not having all the answers? What if much of what we are so often taught about the Bible is only one of many ways to interpret the text? This vulnerable and contemplative book offers hope to anyone who has felt excommunicated from a traditional faith system. Through stories of trial and error, Brandon Carleton presents a different approach to faith, pastoring, and ultimately, how to find religion meaningful again.

Theology mixed with humor!

I’ve only listened to a couple episodes so far, but subscribed before the first one was over. I like that this is a refreshing take on Christianity, but I really love the humor and chemistry that the two hosts have. Can’t wait to listen to more episodes! :)

A great podcast!

I don’t exactly know how I reached this podcast but it has been a great find. I’m a Christian that grew up in a very formal rigid denomination. And this podcast hits home and talks about the many things I’ve dealt with in my faith journey using humor and great guests.

Suicide podcast

Was not looking forward to this one, but listened anyway. It turned out to be extremely well done and taught me a lot. I definitely have a new outlook on this. Thanks for resolving a lot of questions circling around in my soul. Well done, guys!
