    #539 Matt MacDonald in his Pre-Creativity Mode

    Matt MacDonald of The Classic Crime is closing out the Kickstarter campaign for their 7th full length album, and we spend an hour of procrastination talking about being older and what that means when you're an artist. The aging artist has lived their lyrics and still seems to be on a quest to find more.

    #537 BC Stories: Brandon

    #537 BC Stories: Brandon

    Brandon’s story is one of perpetual bad authorities. He grew up never really trusting his dad, and got into drugs as a punk kid way of acting out for attention, but what he was left with was a lack of trust in himself. Through the course of multiple failed recovery programs and the loss of multiple friends, he finally found solace in his now wife, and became self-determined to continually battle addiction.

    #536 Dead People in Corners

    BadChristian isn’t a debate podcast, but when Alex Tsakiris of the Skeptiko Podcast and author of Why Evil Matters stops by to talk about how our consciousness lives on, Matt and Alex have a great time going back and forth about studies and experiments that prove or disprove life after death and evils influence.

    #535 The Gay Pastor

    Michael Robison is a successful former pastor who tried to do everything he could to not be gay. But it didn't work! In this episode, we discuss the traditional roles of pastors and husbands and how the church can often try to suppress and hide the truth. How do you tell your wife, family, and congregation you have a secret?

Interesting take in the reviews by many Christians. I miss the days of thinking I had everything figured out and was following Christ. Unfortunately real life happens and there’s sometimes little the Bible or our perception of God (lets be honest, we all have a different one) can do to help. Christians are taught some very harmful and not biblical based ideologies in America specifically. Ever wonder where in the Bible you find where it says to ask Jesus into your heart? No. Interesting. Probably because it’s not there. Many, many things taught in “the church” are baseless, manipulations or their own biased. You can tell yourself that your faith is unshakable but at some point, it is what it is. Gone. In need of an overhaul. Open to a verity of random topics all loosely connected to an expanding spiritual journey. How amazing God has given us this gift and ability to adapt and change. If you want to cling to only the Bible and keep what you think is “absolute truth” and if that works for you- then great. Just understand it doesn’t work for a lot of other people. Oh and I never had a bad personal experience with the church either.

Appreciate the topics fellas! Keep em coming!

I’m out

This podcast has gone from 3 guys having honest conversations about things that needed to be challenged in the church to 2 jaded guys who take every opportunity to blast and tear down the church. Listened for a few years but I won’t listen again.
