There are some useful insights mentioned in this podcast. I see it as being a picture of what happens when power or influence supercedes love in the Christian Church.
Lots of sarcasm in the podcaster's monologues. I appreciate that he has made his thoughts public, and i like to learn from the perspectives of others, but sometimes have a hard time believing that he can accept that we all are in a place of limited knowledge and perspective. I still choose to trust in the God of the bible, and feel that my future regrets would be greater supposing I chose to abandon those standards for some that I chose for myself.
Thanks for creating a community around the hurting, and I hope everyone listening doesn't equate "The Church" with every Christian they meet. Everyone hates being stereotyped- something I hope to assume we all can agree on.
I don't like to debate, but love to discuss the reason people believe the things they do. There is a reason for everything, and I hope to better understand from listening to these and future monologues as I can.
One point of confusion: he speaks like a preacher and gives long lists of Biblical references to support his case against Christianity's claims. I would think that if I didn't trust the Bible, it would cease to be a source of reference and would only be a useful resource to point out how little others knew about it who claimed to follow it. Kind of a jab, I guess. Maybe a better title would be,
"Christians are brainwashed, and here's why"
I at first assumed this would be more of a support group for people who have been burned by the church, with some sort of encouragement about the hope involved with an atheist perspective.
