Michael butchers a joke. After some banter, the boys discuss a conflict between Kirk Franklin and his son. Why do we put people on a pedestal and are shocked when they fall short of our expectations? What should the response be from the Christian Church?
A sober joke leads to a discussion on another shooting of an unarmed black man in Orange County. Has being out of church reshaped how you see people? How often should we read the Bible? Does it change in your Christian walk? We’ll have to answer that last question in part 3.
Sean has new office lights. It would be nice if we had an Amazon promo code to let you buy it. Michael is reading Martin Luther’s Catechism. Sean is nerding out on Matthew 10. Putting a cap on January 2021.
How do we reconcile science and faith? How about faith and party lines? Can they all exist together?
Fall is HereThe boys catch up after a couple weeks apart. Sean is angry with his mom for sheltering him from great music. Church mindsets have to be challenged. One should be able to say how they feel and be honest about life. Personal ownership is key, without blowing smoke. Covid is beating up Illinois. Michigan isContinue reading “EP182: Celebrate The Bad”
Sean gets Taco Bell. Why do they get such a bad rap? Sean also gets into smoking. First ribs, then his first pork butt. Apparently, Ellen is a jerk. 3D vs 5D? So many people are gullible and so many are predators. They take advantage of the sheep. There are things we believe just becauseContinue reading “EP179: What If We Changed Our Beliefs?”
The boys start out the gate talking about Sanders 2020…Barry, not Bernie! Possible Brooks for VP. The boys eventually get to a conversation of truth. What’s important to salvation and what in the Bible seems to just be debatable? Do you defend the whole Bible when talking to people, or do you, like Michael, justContinue reading “EP114 Interpretation Is Open for Debate”
Shout out to the Prez to start. Michael and the boys are smoking a brisket. But no 17th Street Magic Dust…blame Sean 🙄. The boys talk a little convo about poop again, and the carnivore diet. Then they turn to a convo on keeping values even when you are unchurched. We have the danger orContinue reading “EP112 Unchurched Values pt1”
Max keeps throwing up on Michael and the Davids are rebranding. Michael is working on breaking 230. So, he’s starting an elimination diet to shed some LBs. Hard transition: technology in church. When church becomes about the “show”, we miss the “why” we do church. The production may bring people in, but it’s the gospelContinue reading “EP111 Church Lures”
Michael introduces “No Beer February”…while Sean records in the kitchen on a wheely kart and gives dating advice. Then the boys talk about kids and the benefit of being bored, being allowed to fail, and not being consumed by things that entertain. This leads to a parallel with the church. Many of our pastors justContinue reading “EP107 Entertainment Faith”
