    135 - Jack Bergstrand - Christianity Without Dogma

    In this episode I talk with business consultant Jack Bergstrand about his new book Christianity Without Dogma. Jack puts forth the argument that it is domga which has turnd Christianity into a business... and a failing business at that! We talk about what a saved Christianity might look like if it returned to its core values of Love, Connection and Service.

Excellent!

I am so grateful for this podcast and for Phil’s kind, inclusive episodes on spiral dynamics. Phil is a kind and generous host who is interested in hearing people’s perspectives. He is inclusive and charitable. If you’re interested in deconstruction or just enjoy talking about spirituality after church this is a great place to start the journey. I wish I would have found this podcast years ago and share it with anyone I meet who is talking about life post-church.

Invaluable!

Phil’s podcast is a resource anyone can benefit from no matter where along the journey! If you’re building, rebuilding, or tearing down you’ll find episodes that will speak to you!

Encouraging and Supportive!

Phil is incredibly supportive and an awesome source of encouragement for the deconstruction/reconstruction journey. This is not an easy journey and he provides amazing support and insight. What I love is how he encourages us to think for ourselves and simply ask questions... everyone is welcome! I’ve learned so much from him already and am really thankful he come along my path! Thank you for everything, Phil. You are a blessing! Love the podcast.
