Leaving (& finding) Jesus

with Derek Turner & Jason Clark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God’s sovereignty revealed by Jesus through cruciform, self-giving love, the nature of trust, intimacy, and union, and the transforming truth that there is no shadow of turning with God, in this podcast the guys explore Jason’s upcoming book, Leaving (& Finding) Jesus.

This conversation juxtaposes an inclusive, reconciling, self-giving, unconditional view of God’s love against an excluding, hierarchal, punishment-focused, conditional view of God’s love. 

You can pre-purchase the book at http://afamilystory.org/product/pre-order-leaving-finding-jesus/ 

QUOTES

“God became one of us, to rescue all of us.” Derek

“The sovereignty of God is self-giving; it is sacrificial in nature.” Jason

“Jesus is the Rabi that walks us through the scriptures; His perspective is the one that we need.” Derek

“I am so convinced Jesus never leaves, that nothing separates us from the love of God.” Jason

“If God is a punishing God, and we become what we behold, then you can justify pretty much anything in the name of Him, and we’ve all felt this abuse.” Jason

“There is no greater love than self-giving love that reconciles all things.” Jason

“I feel like your book is going to help people experience peace; that it’s ok to ask questions, to have doubt, to leave a Jesus that you’ve grown up with that might be contrary to who Jesus really is.” Derek

Co-Author of A Church Called TOV, Scot McKnight talks about his new book written in response to the abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse within the leadership of Willow Creek, Harvest, and sadly churches of all shapes and sizes.

We talked about TOV (which means goodness) and how when we practice empathy, compassion, extending grace, putting people first, telling the truth, promoting justice, and serving others, TOV emerges in the culture and we all become more Christlike.
