What if God’s love, perfectly revealed through the cross, restores all things? What if the world is already reconciled in Christ and we are simply awakening to that gospel? What if Christ is our message and we preach to awaken hearts? Derek and Jason dive into our union in Christ and how that impacts everything from knowing our identity to loving our “enemies,” to evangelism, to navigating cross moments in our lives.

    What cognizant christians will take away from ‘the whole world is automatically reconciled to Christ’ suggests the whole world —all humans—are saved for eternity; even if they are not aware nor even have accepted Christ. This is misleading and borderline lie. As your human father said to you, ‘don’t make stuff up son’.

    By grace are ye saved. Grace saves. Love is the motivation behind the grace.

    You r changing the nature of God and Christ by omitting scriptures regarding punishment and eternal torment.

    Let every man be a liar but God be true. I think you and Derek are courting disaster by preaching another gospel—just a thought …

    Scripture is important…much of it will be played back ‘on that day’.

JAMIE & DONNA WINSHIP / OUR TRUE IDENTITY

How to experience God, confession, faith, fear, freedom, our true identity, and cruciform, others-focused, self-emptying unconditional love barely scratches the surface of this packed conversation on the goodness of God. Jamie and Donna Winship share how we can discover our true identity through a relationship with God and each other.

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord

THOMAS JAY OORD / OPEN & RELATIONAL THEOLOGY

Thomas Jay Oord shares about open relational theology; how it connects with the way we live and matches our deepest intuitions. The guys talked about a relational God who is genuinely loving, looks like Jesus, and walks through each day with us, impacting and impacted by our friendship.

Thomas describes an uncontrolling, loving God, that harmonizes with scripture. In this podcast, he dives into the subjects of hell, prayer, and evangelism all through the lens of open relational theology.

LLOYD CLARK / I AM ENOUGH

CARLOS PADILLA / WALKING IN GOD’S POWER

Healing, miracles, the power of God, evangelism through the gospel of inclusion, faith, and reframing repentance, Carlos shares about his journey of discovering that the miraculous, or a transformed life, is simply about discovering God’s love and our origin and union in Him.

DANIEL GROTHE / THE POWER OF PLACE

Daniel Grothe and the guys discuss his new book, The Power of Place, which speaks the sense of loneliness that many feel in today’s age of hypermobility and noncommittal wandering, reminding us of the ancient vow of stability and teaching us how we can lead a richer life of friendship, community, and purpose.

They also touch on the deconstruction movement within the church, how authoritarian leadership has wounded and undermined trust, and how healing and connection are available only where we practice the long game of family.
