God in the Gallows08/24/14

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Pain & Suffering, Problem of Evil, Presence of God
  • Greg has recently returned from a three week trip in Europe, and today he shares stories of how the Kingdom message of a Jesus-looking God, radical love and non-violence is truly spreading all over the world. The joy of his travels, the opportunities to see the work of fellow Kingdom people, and the vast beauty of God’s Earth as seen on the Alps came to a crashing halt with his visit to Auschwitz. Sharing his experience at Auschwitz, Greg addresses the timeless question of “Where was God in all that suffering?” and teaches that God is always on the inside of pain and suffering, not as the author of it, but as the Redeemer of it. And he reminds us that, in the end, Christ, not evil, has the final word and he will be (and is) victorious.

The End of Religion: Part 208/10/14

  • Speaker – Bruxy Cavey
     
  • Topics – Grace, Sacrifice, Covenant
  • Religion was not God’s original intention. Humanity was created as image bearers of God to be in intimate relationship with the divine. It was only after Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan to think God was distant did humanity try to bridge the perceived gap with God through religion. In the second installment of the End of Religion series, Bruxy explores how religion is the primary context in which sin flourishes.

The End of Religion: Part 108/03/14

  • Speaker – Bruxy Cavey
     
  • Topics – Grace, Relationships, Presence of God
  • Adam and Eve were created to be in an intimate relationship with their Creator based on trust and love. With his craftiness, however, the Serpent talked about God as though he was not present and caused Adam and Eve to understand God in terms of religion, rather than relationship. Religion has then become the Church’s dominant way to interact with God, and yet he is calling us back to a grace-based relationship rather than a rule-driven religion.
