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 https://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

BRIAN SIMMONS / THE PASSION TRANSLATION

“The bible, minus love, equals false teaching, false living, and fosters an anger in the soul of man.” Brian Simmons, author of The Passion Translation, talks about approaching scripture with a love theology, the oppressive impact of hyper literalism, women in ministry, equality, union, Jesus’ humanity inside the Trinity, the finished work of the cross, and the passionate, powerful, transforming love of God.

DR. CAROLINE LEAF / CLEANING UP YOUR MENTAL MESS

Brilliant, compassionate, and empowering, world-renowned neuroscientist and best-selling author, Dr. Caroline Leaf, talks about her new book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess.

In other words, she teaches us how to renew our minds.

THERE IS NO “US OR THEM” AT THE CROSS

This podcast highlights Jason’s book, Leaving and finding Jesus, where he writes about his deconstructing faith journey. The book is Jason’s Emmaus Road discovery of a love that is reconciling all creation; a journey where he’s awakening to a burning heart while leaving every Jesus who won’t lay His life down for His friends. 

This podcast features a message Jason gave at an icuTalks where he addresses trauma within the church. He confronts the myth of separation with the truth that absolutely nothing, not life or death, powers or authorities, not present or future, not our understandings, beliefs, systems, or actions, nothing separates us from the reconciling love of God.
The guys discussed the fivefold in connection with the nature of God as non-hierarchal and inclusive, laced throughout creation and culture, reconstituted and perfectly exemplified in the life and ministry of Jesus, embedded into the very foundations of the Church, and subsequently expressed through the lives of the countless saints that make it up.

HAROLD & LINDA EBERLE / THE NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION

Harold and Linda Eberle share about the catalytic love of God that is transforming our western understanding of the church. They speak on victorious mindsets, kingdom thinking, the myth of separation, reconciliation through the death of Jesus, and salvation through his life; plus old elephants! This is a power packed interview full of profound insight.

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

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.
