Matt goes on a rant about how the work of the future will center around creativity and meaning. As technology and artificial intelligence increase, it will be up to us to invent and define meaningful work. Alternatively, those who aren't able to do so will find their life akin to that of a zoo animal.

Systems, institutions, and organizations tend to grow and change some along the way, but they rarely reverse course entirely or realize when they have become ineffective or even counterproductive. That's partly because the participants don't like to challenge their own system and outsiders criticism is easily dismissed.

We know people outside our churches have criticism, and we are aware of the tendency inside to continually give the benefit of the doubt. Seems like this is a bad recipe and begs the question, "How would we know if any or all particular church expressions were doing more harm than good tot he overall body?"

Something they weren't allowed to do at Mars Hill Church (Seattle, WA), Jen Smidt, Melanie Studley, and Candice Clem articulate how they were "indoctrinated" into this church culture that masked sexism with a vision to see men lead at home, church, and in the community. Hear this panel of women at our BC Con describe details that will have your head shaking in disbelief. How was it so easy for these women and their husbands to be deceived into being a part of such an unhealthy culture. Matt, Toby, and Joey discuss the epidemic of deconstructing vocational church employees who are becoming increasingly uncomfortable in their roles, due to their changing beliefs.

Joey and Toby reflect on how their decade old plans of potentially starting a church. Turns out it's a lot different than what they had imagined.

He may look and sound like a Baptist preacher, but Pastor Queen isn't convinced in Jesus' divinity, doesn't believe Jesus "had to" die in order for man to be saved, thinks there's other ways of finding God (outside of Jesus) and yet is a Baptist minister. We also talk discipleship in the context of this post-modern Christian culture that is rapidly growing.

Matt and Toby are having a bad day and due to their "made up professions," don't feel like grownups yet. Joey is reading Rob Bell heresy and in this current time of immense rethinking among Matt, Toby, and Joey, a passage in Bell's newest book sparks a conversation on what the hell we are supposed to be doing with the Bible.

Jaclyn in zealous to see everyone liberated from sexual limitations; orgies, open marriages, anything goes as long as it includes mutual respect. She's insightful and subversive to America's common approach towards sexual morals. Matt and Jaclyn disagree about the premise of the Aziz Ansari allegations and how they should be treated. Is the tide changing on how we view sex?

When we started this podcast, we knew we'd get some things right and some things wrong and at some point Fundamental Christians would try to shut us down. Turns out we were right about the fundamentalist part. Now we're out here trying to push against fundamentalism from wherever it comes from.
