    Scot McKnight / A Church Called TOV

    Scot McKnight / A Church Called TOV

    Co-Author of A Church Called TOV, Scot McKnight talks about his new book written in response to the abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse within the leadership of Willow Creek, Harvest, and sadly churches of all shapes and sizes.
    We talked about TOV (which means goodness) and how when we practice empathy, compassion, extending grace, putting people first, telling the truth, promoting justice, and serving others, TOV emerges in the culture and we all become more Christlike.
    QUOTES

    They (those who were abused) needed people in the establishment to stand up for them in order to move that story forward at the pace it should have been and they (church leaders) didn't."
    “The flipside of the power through fear culture is grace.”
    "The opposite of a narcissist, who has utterly no insight into his own character and who is totally self-satisfied, is empathy, the capacity to empathize with others."
    “Many of the victims of pastors are afraid to come forward because of what it will do the church; but also because of the blowback that comes at the systemic level from an institution which, is very powerful. So you put people first, rather than institution."
    “Lived theology is more potent than written theology. So, if you hung out with Mr. Rodgers for fifteen years and worked with him, you would have experienced the divine reality more than if you had attended sermons on those fifteen years of Sundays."

    Sexy Deconstruction? with Derek Turner & Jason Clark

    Sexy Deconstruction? with Derek Turner & Jason Clark

    Matt Chandler, pastor, and writer, recently used the phrase “a sexy fad” when describing the deconstruction movement. Derek and Jason highlight his statement to dive into the nature of their own de/ and reconstruction. They have become even more convinced that God is in the restoration business.
    This podcast dives into sin, grace, reconciliation, and God's love for all His kids, the church deep and wide. Ultimately, the guys kick off season three embracing Rom 8:38-29 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    This conversation juxtaposes an inclusive, reconciling, self-giving, unconditional view of God's love against an excluding, hierarchal, punishment-focused, conditional view of God's love.

more of this!!!

i am so glad i stumbled onto this podcast. i need to hear a lot of this. all of this content is an amazing stepping stone for renewing my mind to the truth of what it means to be a christian. also do you guys think you’d ever have an episode where you would directly give the audience the gospel? would love that! but also if it never happened that’s cool too hehe.

PastorDerekT ,

Hey guys! I Pastor @RiverCharlotte and I’m co-hosting this podcast with Jason Clark. We would love it if you joined us for this journey. This podcast is filled with great guests that will help you understand the God that looks just like Jesus.

Just found!

Wow. I just stumbled on this podcast a few days ago and I’m hooked. This is everything I’ve needed to point me towards Jesus during this “rediscovery” of who Abba really is. Bravo. 👏🏼
