The BadChristian Podcast

Toxic masculinity, good and healthy masculinity, men and women's ministries; do we pigeonhole folks to a certain brand of masculinity and femininity? Can this be harmful? One thing is for sure, thinking through all of this is much more complex than we give it credit for. Toby ends things with a “things that make me mad list,” including his laments on not being able to let out “sad farts."

There's no need to go to the Bible for an explanation on fossil records or insight on cancer research. It's equally pointless turning to science for data on how to solve your moral dilemmas. Jim Stump, Senior Editor at Biologos and author of "Science and Christianity: An Introduction to the Issues," invites the church to see the harmony between science and biblical faith as he and his organization present an evolutionary understanding of God’s creation. Matt, Toby, and Joey discuss Cam Newton’s (QB, Carolina Panthers) sexist remarks to a female reporter, and Matt explains his unique theory on the real problem behind mass shootings; and it has nothing to do with guns.

With the shooting in Las Vegas, it seemed weird to be “business as usual,” advertising products, laughing, cutting jokes, but isn’t laughing good for the soul? We share some jokes in which we’ve taken things too far, talk about Matt Chandler’s decision to only pastor one church with one location, reflect on Trump’s presidency in times like these and brag on (once again) Seacoast Church.

There’s a lot of movement in Christianity and it's not always movement away from belief in Jesus, but rather the extraneous practices, beliefs and approaches to life that over time have become synonymous with Christianity. Maybe those Christians who stand up and say "Not anymore! We won’t be known for this!" are post-Christians? We also discover the apple not falling far from the tree in the Svendsen household: Joey’s son has a penis marveling moment, and his daughter feels unreal guilt. Plus The Damn News is back with a story about a generous hero of ours and MALE sex robots.

Chris Date of the Rethinking Hell Podcast is a very conservative Christian who's a masterful debater and theologian making such a convincing case against the traditional view of hell (in which people are eternally and consciously tormented) that even Joey's starting to believe him. As a biblical inerrantist, he claims the bible teaches annihilationism. In other talk, Matt, Toby, and Joey discuss the senselessness of all the NFL kneeling, non-kneeling, stay in the locker room, link arms hoop-lah.

There’s a bible secreting oil, which you can access for free to receive healing, and Joey was offered some. Do some people have an anointing or are they just good at what they do? On tour last week, Toby, Matt, and the rest of the Emery clan took a stab at stand-up comedy, and Toby objectified women in Buc-ee's on his way to the True Man Experience, where he talks to men about masculinity.

As Cities Burn and Jonezetta's artist manager Ryan Rado gets real about Tourette's. It may have been awkward for him to uncontrollably shout "God Damn!" to an audience at a Christian music festival; and flipping people off uncontrollably does indeed put some one in a certain box, but Ryan, who still struggles with this disorder, has come out on top. Hear about his relationship with Jesus, his assessment on logic and self-analysis being equally important as compassion and empathy, and his newly found passion for painting.

God’s omniscience and omnipotence are such common doctrines, we forget there are sincere Christians who don't believe in either. Open theology teaches that true human freewill and God’s foreknowledge of the future is incompatible. Thomas Oord, leading theologian in this doctrine, explains the peace he has knowing that evil exists because God can’t stop it.  We also listen to and dissect Joel Osteen's response to the whole "our doors were closed until you asked us to open them" fiasco.

Do Christians have “senseless faith,” holding on to beliefs that are not only insignificant but also illogical?  Churches position themselves not for Christians but only for a certain type of Christian.  This is tragic when true believing skeptics can’t have a community to fellowship with.  Toby brings some sad news on Chuck E. Cheese and Joey admits to paying $600 for a pet cat.

We talk to Chris Heuertz, best-selling author of "The Sacred Enneagram: Finding Your Unique Path to Spiritual Growth" partially just to find out if this enneagram stuff is legit or not. We discuss whether it was created by humans as a tool for understanding, or is innate to a deeper spiritual truth of how we're created. Matt shares some BC Music news, and Joey witnesses the potential animalistic tendencies of humans when he waited in line for sandbags in preparing for the approaching hurricane.
