Yes

Thankful for this content

Heresy

I would challenge everyone to go read your Bibles if you want to know what Truth is!!!! It’s enough!!!! Hold man’s words up against it always. If you faithfully do this, you will see that men like this are NOT teaching/putting forth the one true Gospel.

I had no idea

Around 2017 I started realizing that I disagree with every preacher, pulpit pounder (that I hear), and everyone in my community regarding biblical values. I was ostracized from my ministry, of which I was the founder, and regretted naming the ministry after Jesus because of the hateful people that name attracted. This happened because I dared to apply critical thinking to my belief structure and seriously examine the basis of my faith. I had no idea others went through the same process until I discovered this podcast a few months ago. Thank you so much for this content. I might not have a church that’s safe for me, nor people to hang out with that share my faith, but I know I’m not alone. It’s funny how this process brought me closer to those of other beliefs systems.
Thank you from the depths of my heart.
