Love the honesty & sincerity!
More people & podcasts are talking these days about the things Jesus taught (in the 4 gospels), but there are a few of his teachings that almost never get serious coverage. Several references (EXCLUDING the “rich young ruler”) are made in Luke about selling all of one’s possessions & giving to the poor and then this teaching is shown to be taken seriously by the time we get to the book of Acts (end of chapters 2 & 4).
Another powerful & often neglected paradigm-changing (IF taken at face value) teaching of Jesus is found in Mt. 6:24; Lk. 16:13-14). This has been called the “Two Masters teaching”, one being God/Love and the other/opposite one being money.
What would Christianity look like, both inside its confines and to the world at large, if these teachings were given much more serious consideration and application?
Take a leap of faith and dive deep into these teachings! ✌🏼
Ballsy Christian Honesty
Educated Christians with the guts to say and question anything. Thought provoking work that helps broaden my idea sphere and thinking.
Thought-provoking, encouraging, and challenging!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast since its inception. Jon and Nat not only share honest and often funny conversations with each other, they do a brilliant job of bringing out the best in their guests. And the range of views and expressions of faith/spiritually in their guests is refreshing! I don’t think I’ve heard an episode yet from which I haven’t come away feel enriched mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or all three. Keep up the great work, guys! ~~~Joni
