Jesus Meets Us Inside Our Delusion
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

S.01 EPISODE 15

Baxter talks about the “growing despair of good people,” a church that’s been raised on separation awakening to our union, Christ in us, the hope of glory.

“Jesus has pitched His tent in our flesh… If I didn’t believe that Jesus, Father and Holy Spirit is inside every person on the whole earth, I would not open my mouth… But we are bearing witness to something that is real.”

Jesus has stepped into our delusions, into our darkness, and the discovery of Christ in us that is the hope of glory, life, wholeness, and freedom.

In part one Baxter talks on Christ as our Creator and also shares about the willingness to approach pain so we might know God more intimately.

S.01 EPISODE 16

In part 2 Baxter continues to reveal how there is no separation in the Triune God and there is no separation between us.

“The good Shepherd is good and He doesn’t do abonnement because His Father doesn’t do abandonment and neither does Holy Spirit.”

Jesus has stepped into our darkness or delusion to reveal Himself. And Baxter unpacks several scriptures in John around our inclusion. Jesus prayed that we would know our union just as He knew and revealed.

Baxter also breaks down two thoughts expressed by George MacDonald’s writings

“Good souls many will one day be horrified at the things they think of God.” “God is not bound to punish sin, God is bound to destroy it.”

And of course we discuss tacos.

This podcast begins with two dads sharing stories about helping their children encounter God as a loving Father.

BRIAN MCLAREN / FAITH AFTER DOUBT

“Christian faith, for me, is no longer a static location but a great spiritual journey…what matters most…is not where we are but where we’re going.” This podcast is a gentle invitation to discover a way of faith defined by love. Brian and Jason discuss navigating rejection, stepping away from literalism, and inerrancy in our approach to scripture and faith, and their personal journey of trusting that God is better than our best thoughts about Him.

KRISTIN DU MEZ / JESUS AND JOHN WAYNE

Patriarchy, authoritarian rule, the nature of power and privilege in America and the Church, the deconstruction movement, Christians in politics; in this podcast, Professor and Historian Kristin Du Mez, examines the impact of perhaps the most influential subculture in this country, white evangelicalism. This conversation explores how evangelicals have stepped away from the Jesus of the Gospels, from sacrificial love. “But what was once done, can be undone.”
