You have some bad ideas about God ... which lead you to some harmful ways of reading Scripture and some hurtful ways of viewing yourself and others. But we serve a redeeming God, and this podcast seeks to liberate you from your bad ideas about God so that you can see God, Scripture, and yourself in a whole new light.
In each episode, Jeremy Myers considers a Scripture passage or a theological topic that many misunderstand, and shows you how to read this passage or understand this topic in light of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Church Leaders Who Help Church Growth (Ephesians 4:11)
If you want the church to grow, it is important to know the four spiritual gifts that God has provided to guide the church into proper church growth. Paul reveals these four roles in Ephesians 4:11, and this study explains what these four roles are and how they work to lead the church into church growth.

Rejoice in Your Differences! (Ephesians 4:7-10)
One of the keys to church unity is in how we handle differences. In Ephesians 4:7-10, Paul shows that we should not try to get rid of differences, but should rejoice in them, because Jesus wants us to be different.

Seven Elements of Christian Unity (Ephesians 4:4-6)
In Ephesians 1-3, Paul explained that God has given us great spiritual riches so that we can lead the world into peace. In the first part of Ephesians 4, Paul tells us Christians that the first way we can show the world how to live in peace is by living in peace with one other.
This begins, as we learned in the last study, by looking to our own heart first and developing certain attitudes of the heart.
In this study, we learn that as we seek to live in peace with other Christians, we should focus on seven key truths that all Christians have in common. When we focus on what we have in common rather than on on what divides us, we will begin to create peace in our midst.

The Church Must Lead the World into Peace (Ephesians 4:1-3)
Everyone wants unity, but nobody really knows how to achieve it.
Most people today seem to think that unity requires conformity. We think that unity is achieved when everybody thinks the same way, talks the same way, dresses the same way, and has the same opinions. Where differences occur, division results, and unity dies. And some people seek to achieve unity by silencing and cancelling those who have different opinions.
You see, when we are in a conflict with someone, we think it is the responsibility of the other person to change their ways, so we can get along with them. We point at their faults and what they said, or what they did, and say that if there is going to be peace, they have to change. Paul challenges all of this in Ephesians 4:1-3. In these verses, Paul shows how we can have unity with others even when there is disagreement.

To Love Your Enemies, Know You are Loved (Ephesians 3:18-21)
Have you ever tried to actually love your enemies? It's next to impossible, isn't it? In Ephesians 3:18-21, Paul provides two ways that we can learn to love our enemies. These seem impossible as well, until we understand what Paul is actually saying about how to love our enemies.

Is it Impossible to Love our Enemies? (Ephesians 3:14-17)
In Ephesians, Paul has instructed his readers to live at peace with people they used to hate, and to begin loving their enemies instead. This is much easier said than done, so in Ephesians 3, Paul shows how he himself is doing this, and how his readers can follow in his example in loving their enemies, just as Jesus did. This is what we begin to learn in Ephesians 3:14-17.
In Ephesians 3:14-17, Paul instructs his readers to do the impossible by loving their enemies. This is much easier said than done, so Paul provides three resources that God has provided to help us do the impossible.

I had no idea how to reconcile the mainstream christianity to all my intuitions which mitigated against it. Jeremy offers a compelling, compassionate and reasonable response!
You totally misrepresent Critical Race Theory. No wonder you are anti. It is about systemic racism in America not how you represented in your podcast. I’m so disappointed in you. I just bought one of your books and now that I know how bad your judgment is, I feel like burning your book. You need to listen to black people and not white-washed American history. I’m sorry for you. I thought you were smarter than that.
