EPISODE 193-IS YOUR CHURCH HEALTHY? show art EPISODE 193-IS YOUR CHURCH HEALTHY?

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

I start with Jesus' two verse long summary of what life is meant to be, which was given to a crowd of religious people who wanted to kill him.  I end with the warning signs of an unhealthy, disfunctional church. If you've had an uneasiness about your current church, listen as I discuss what happens to a Christian church when religious people control it.

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

 Religion always works from a script. But God is the original Free Spirit who is not constrained by religion's scripts. No surprise that God's Son is a Free Spirit who regularly went off religion's scripts. Listen as I discuss two people who lead to Jesus going off religion's script. The first was a so-called immoral woman, the second a hopeless invalid, who meet Morality and Hope incarnated.

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

Jesus disregards silly religious rules.  He constantly violates other people's religious rules, and He clearly has no regard for these rules. Jesus talks to the poster child for organized religion in  Judea, and Jesus is not impressed with him.  Listen as I discuss the type of "religion" God has in mind for the human race.

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

This is the ultimate cage fight: God vs. An Extremely Religious Person. Guess who wins? Nicodemus knew a lot, but he doesn't know God very well, and he completely missed what God was working to do in his country.

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

Jesus, God incarnate, "cleansed the temple," as some call it.  But I call it a premeditated physical attack on bad organized religion. Resisting evil, God's heart, bad religion 2,000 years ago, bad religion today, religious cults, and religious bigotry are all discussed.

Christianity With An Edge-With Scott E. Rokely

For 2,000 years the Christian Church has made little effort to teach the Holy Spirit. And this sparse teaching has been remarkably ineffective considering the person being taught. Listen as I discuss why the Holy Spirit can't really be taught, the Spirit must be caught.

The problem is, nothing satisfies us for long. Listen as I discuss the disease of "More"-itis, what both Christ and Buddha had to say about this, and then as I discuss the satisfaction that never ends. American culture, politics, Thomas Merton, Nirvana, Heaven, Zen Buddhism compared to Christ's teaching, and the empty place inside all of us are all discussed.
