The BadChristian Podcast

Ray Harkins is a good friend of the show, he hosts the 100 Words or Less Podcast, and is the lead singer of the band Taken, who came out of the melodic hardcore scene in the early 2000's. After helping his wife battle cancer, Ray decided to write about something real and vulnerable on Taken's new EP "With Regard To." Also, why are people stoked on Justin Bieber's worship set at a festival, and yet Underoath gets scorned for swearing on an album?

Joey found some of his old premarital counseling notes. Now his chauvinistic approach to counseling couples only four years ago leaves him embarrassed. Bill Hybels, lead pastor of Willow Creek Church, steps down and it doesn't look good for him. According to Francis Chan, we should probably not talk about it.

Regardless of whether the future is scary or unnerving, do yourself a favor: grit your teeth and go with it. Our bodies are also falling apart, Matt thinks rock music is dead and maybe money can make you happy after all.
