The BadChristian Podcast

During this episode, you get a snapshot as to why BadChristian exists, how much money is made through this operation, where that money goes and why Matt, Toby and Joey spend a lot of time on things that make no money at all.  The headliners of this episode however, are the hosts of BadChristian.com's newest podcast, "Reconstruct: The Collective Reconstruction of Our Faith."  Join Dan Koch and John Raines on Reconstruct Podcast as they provide resources and community for people who are rethinking and reconstructing a faith in God.

On this episode we discuss a recent article from Christianity Today in which Anglican Priest, Tish Harrison Warren, claims that there is a "crisis of authority." She feels that bloggers like Jen Hatmaker and Rachel Held Evans don't have, but need formal accountability to be qualified as "teachers."

While Matt and Toby are on the road to perform new music from the upcoming Matt and Toby album, they have been rethinking what qualifies as appropriate interaction with females.  Reva, an employee and friend of BadChristian, shares the tour bus with six other guys and it's surfaced a lot of interesting thoughts and reflection.  For example, can it be disrespectful to make such an effort to be respectful of "THE GIRL that's present?"  At one of the shows, Toby goes on a verbal tirade towards a young lady that heckles him during the Matt and Toby set.  Lastly, Matt doesn't take showers and Joey ends this podcast with the saddest bomb of a low note one could ever imagine.

What do you do when bad stuff happens in your personal life?  Joey describes his warped strategy which entails thinking of the absolute worst thing that could ever happen in this life.  That way, he can take comfort in his current circumstances "not being so bad."  And the main event?  Scottie Henry from that heavy band, Norma Jean, opens up about his confusion on why former band mate, Josh Scoggin quit the band; they never even talked about it. Scottie also talks about life after Norma Jean, what it's like having a job outside of music and catches us up to speed on his new band, Holy+Gold.

Steven Furtick and Elevation Church is at it again, raising some eye brows with something fishy.  Maybe it's nothing but just in general, why are celebrities and politicians fair game for scrutiny amongst Christians but Pastors are off limits? Lastly, is the BadChristian Podcast and similar forms of media/entertainment becoming more legitimized as sources of information in the church? Because a Christian journalism outfit took information from Matt's podcast (Break it Down) and didn't even name him as a source! Maybe he deserves this though, considering on this episode he teaches us all how to steal from airlines during check-in.

Joey just got back from a pastors conference where he got to witness the uncanny, unmatched talent of Steven Furtick (Elevation Church).  And by the way, do we always need to attach "anointing" to pure, raw talent?  For the majority of this episode, Gary Wayne, author of Genesis Six Conspiracy, comes on to talk Nephilim and demonic conspiracy against humanity.

Mike Herrera of MxPx joins Matt and Toby in studio while Toby is in Seattle for a Matt & Toby show. They talk about sound guys, tour managers, and getting kicked off shows for smoking. Did you know MxPx used to get frustrated on the road with Christian ska band, O.C. Supertones, for preaching so much on stage, MxPx has their own beer, and Mike wasn't confident enough in Pokinatcha (MxPx's first album) to share news of its release with his high school peers? How did that MxPx punk mascot come about and is it true that a Satanist helped with Life in General's album artwork?

Our friend Matt Johnson helped write Joey's book, was a part of the Tooth and Nail early days, and was an integral part of Mars Hill in Seattle.  He just wrote a book, "Getting Jesus Wrong," that reflects on how far off track the church has gotten from Jesus' teachings.  Matt, Toby and Matt Johnson discuss the real power that Facebook gives to chumps, how the left is similar to fundamentalism and Toby actually longs for the apocalypse.  And while Joey's away, the three spend some time "Joey bashing."

Iron sharpens iron? You'll have to be the judge. Chad Johnson, an old time friend of Matt and Toby's and founder of ComeandLive.com and TakeHold Records, joins us with David Pierce, Ben Pierce (Steiger.org), all three bringing a different angle of what it means to be a Christian.  Should Toby and Matt be more evangelical at Emery shows? Why did Aaron Gillespie, due to using some choice words, get the boot from speaking at a Steiger event?  How vital to the gospel is the message of sanctification? Do we pick and choose what qualifies as sanctification and overlook possibly more important examples? Lastly, Joey admits to a stark example of him being a sexist in the workplace.
