    Did God Abandon Jesus at the Cross?

    Did God Abandon Jesus at the Cross?

    "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" These words of Jesus on the cross have led many to the conclusion that God left Jesus while he was dying on the cross. That because Jesus had become sin for us, the Father turned away from him because he can't look on sin. But is that what was happening? Let's talk about it.

    Reminder: the video version of this episode is available on the YouTube UnSunday Show channel.

    Is There a Tithe in the New Covenant?

    Is There a Tithe in the New Covenant?

    Welcome to episode 36 of The UnSunday Show. Starting with this episode, I'm shaking things up a little with a new format. All of the past audio episodes of this show have been posted to YouTube as they've been published but starting today, the YouTube version of the show will be video instead of audio. I'm now publishing each episode in both audio (for the podcast) and video (for YouTube) and the episodes will be much shorter. See the full description for more info...

    What The Law Couldn't Do, God Did

    What The Law Couldn't Do, God Did

    Welcome to episode 35 of The UnSunday Show. Let's talk about the Good Samaritan. In response to Jesus' reminder that he was obligated to love God with all his being and to love his neighbor as himself, a lawyer, in an attempt to justify himself, asked Jesus who his neighbor was. Jesus' answer revealed the failure of the Law to empower anyone to obey it while at the same time, showing that what the Law couldn't do, God did by sending his Son. Let's talk...

    Episode 34: Jesus is Better

    Episode 34: Jesus is Better

    Jesus is better. That's one of the themes of the New Testament letter to the Hebrews. Jesus is better. He's better than the angels, he's better than Moses, he's better than the Levitical priests of the Old Covenant, he's better than the Old Covenant. All of these things in the Old Testament were types and shadows that pictured Jesus, but Jesus is better. Let's talk about it...

    Episode 33: A Contaminated Grace Is No Longer Grace

    Episode 33: A Contaminated Grace Is No Longer Grace

    Welcome to episode 33 of The UnSunday Show. Why are there so many burdensome rules in organized Christian religion when Jesus promised rest and relief from those same heavy burdens? When we read the Bible as though all of it applies to us, the lines blur between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, resulting in a fatal mixology of confusion and harm.

    This fatal mixology is the springboard of our conversation in this episode. Push Play and join the discussion.

    Episode 32: A Smaller Version of Jesus

    Episode 32: A Smaller Version of Jesus

    Let's talk about the clutter that gets in between us and Jesus that ends up giving us a smaller version of Jesus. Institutional religion works hard to convince us that Jesus alone isn't enough. It puts obstacles between us and Jesus that we're told need to be there in order to remain acceptable to God. Sometimes it's sub-mediators as we're told we need Jesus and the pastor, priest, or leader. Or it's religious obligation that we're told must be consistent in our lives in order to keep peace with God.

Perfect Find For my Spiritual Questions

As a child raised Sunday School and every bible study I have come to have am any questions in my adulthood. I am very grateful to have found this podcast to help me flourish and research deeper into my faith. This podcast is uncomfortable, especially if you are currently apart of a church that subscribes to what he discusses in the podcast. However, he opens up dialogue that many DONT. Great listen!

Great podcast

I love how the host and his guests dissect traditions in the church to see whether traditions (and theological stances like tithing) are biblical, cultural or simply handed down because it’s tradition. He challenges us to examine scripture in context and isn’t afraid to ask hard questions.
