    2.15: Deconstructing while married: What's it like? ♥️

    What's it like being married when one person is deconstructing and one person isn't? Today James and I both share the hardest parts of this deconstruction journey, how it's affected our marriage and what we’ve learned along the way. Welcome back to the "Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl" podcast! We hope you enjoy this final episode of the season. XOXO, Tiffany

    2.14: Investigating Evangelism: Should it look different?

    2.14: Investigating Evangelism: Should it look different?

    Today we're talking with Carlos Rodríguez about if our approach to evangelism needs to change. We're also talking about a bunch of hot topics in social justice and about finding Jesus in deconstruction!! SO EXCITED about this episode!! It is so thought-provoking and a different perspective than I ever heard growing up. Welcome back to the "Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl" podcast! XOXO, Tiffany

    HERE ARE TODAY'S QUESTIONS:
    Q1: Would you tell us a little of your personal journey with social justice and Christianity? And what has been the fruit (good or bad) of that approach? (@4:18)

    Q2: What have you observed about conservative Christian approaches toward social justice? What is the fruit of the approach? (@6:11)

    Q3: Does God have a preference for the poor? And is that the best thing He can also do for the rich? (@12:48)

    Q4. How, if at all, does this understanding of social justice change the way we view evangelism? If so, what changes should we be making as the church? (@14:12)

    Q5: Let’s take a side bar here. Is deconstruction biblical? Did Jesus teach it? (@15:07) 

    Q6: Have our mission trips been evangelization or colonization, or both? (@16:26)

    Q7: Is it okay to question everything? Will we find Jesus there? (@17:51)

    Q8: Growing up we emphasized the salvation of souls over the physical bodies of people. What are your thoughts on that? (@21:36)

    Q9: I want to dive into a couple hot topic social justice issues with you. The first one is racial justice. (@27:10)

    Q10: On a similar note, would you talk with us about Christian Nationalism? (@33:32)

    Q11: What do you think it means to be pro life? Is our version of pro life biblical? (And can we talk about identity politics?) (@37:51)

    Q12: What does the Bible teach us about political parties? Would Jesus want us to only vote Republican? (@45:06)

    Q13: What do you think is the most important takeaway for my listeners? (Spoiler: It’s about deconstruction!) (@51:12)
