Finding a New Church Home

Finding a church home was never easy for the family. We’ve stayed away from the rigid legalism of the fundamentalist. We’ve avoided the judgmental spirit-filled charismatics. Ironically, we found our home returning to a Southern Baptist Church. We’re at Saddleback Church.

They just opened a new campus at Yorba Linda High School, which means we can leave our house really late and still be a little late. Next step? Get plugged in.

That’s us with our pastor Santosh Swamidas and founding pastor Rick Warren.

Episode 21 – Old vs. New…Testament, That Is

Before I delve deeper into the whole Evangelical War against the LGBT community. I think it is important to understand the difference between the Old and New Testament.

I address the question, “If God is real, why doesn’t he just show himself?”

Enjoy this incredibly simplistic explanation.

Ep. 18 – The Arrogant Chistian

God said it. I believe it. That settles it. I hate that phrase with a passion and for some reason, we teach our kids this phrase. It reeks of “do as I say, not as I do.”

The Bible is the word of God. This means we are speaking the very words of God himself. So why would you argue with God? Don’t shoot the messenger…maybe this one time.

Episode 17 – The Skeptical Christian

Today, I talk a little about my journey as a Christian. I’ve always questioned everything I believe. I think this is healthy and you have to risk unbelief for the sake of belief.

Also, the kid joins me on the discussion. She’s only 9.

Episode 16 – Getting Hell from the Yellow Sign

Convention season is finally over at the end of Comic Con. One thing you can always count on are the guys with the Yellow Signs showing up and preaching the gospel…or more accurately preaching Hell.

God commands Christians to preach the Good News, but just how good is the news of Hell?

How effective are these yellow signs? Well, let’s talk about it.

Episode 15 – Let’s Talk Abortion

I’ll just get to the point. I’m pro-life. Does that mean I hate women and want to control them? No. But without understanding each other’s opinions, there can be no place for debate and find common ground.

I ask an important question to my pro-choice friends. Please answer me on the podcast Facebook page.

Episode 14 – Sodom and Gomorrah Follow-Up

I changed courses today. I was going to talk about something that will enrage you, but instead, I need to follow-up on the last episode.

I had a little epiphany. I believe I’ve just removed the connection between the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and homosexuality. Take a listen.

This weekend, I’ll be at D23 as a civilian. Say hi. I will also be recording the Film Threat podcast on Sunday.
