How should Christians react in a post-Christian society?Many theologians describe our modern era as being post-Christian. Meaning that religion was once public in the United States, and it is slowly disappearing. Is that okay? Is it possible that now is a great time to be doing ministry?In this episode Chris interviews pastor/ author/ podcaster Skye Jethani. He's the author of the book "What if Jesus was Serious?" and co-host of The Holy Post podcast with Phil Vischer. Skye's wisdom for this time helps Christians put today in perspective.Discussion Questions: What is meant by the term "post-Christian"? Do you think we're living in a post-Christian world? How do our environment and culture impact Jesus' words in the Sermon on the Mount? What does it mean to love our neighbors? Turn the other cheek? Do you agree with Skye when he says that we are to obey our leaders, and yet we are the leaders in the US? If so, how does that impact how you live and work? Have you ever lived in an environment that was non-Christian? How does that differ from a culturally Christian area? Was it easier to do ministry in one over another?

268 -What Does it Really Mean to Vote Pro-Life? - with Skye Jethani
VOX Podcast with Mike Erre
Tomorrow is Election day, 2020. It has been a long year of rhetoric and talking points, promises and accusations. Part of the Sermon on The Mount, part of what Jesus has been showing us, is to adopt the discipline of discernment. Today we have on friend and frequent guest of the show, Skye Jethani. Skye, who is a co host of the Holy Post podcast, recently released a video on Abortion. In the video, Skye presents the data and statistics from the last 40 years, as to what has and has not had effects on abortion rates. How has Roe v. Wade effected abortion numbers? Does a conservative President really lower those? What about the Supreme Court? What are we called to outside of voting every four years?The sensitivity of this issue is not lost on us and we hope this conversation can be encouraging and thoughtful, not divisive.The sensitivity of this issue is not lost on us and we hope this conversation can be encouraging and thoughtful, not divisive.You can see Skye’s video on abortion here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvWD7ykNjCcAs always, we encourage and would love discussion as we pursue.

Skye Jethani is an author, speaker, consultant, and ordained minister. He also serves as the co-host of the popular Holy Post Podcast, a weekly show that blends astute cultural and theological insights with comical conversation. Today, Skye shares how growing up in a religiously mixed home shaped him, deciding to follow Christ against his father’s wishes, and why it’s surprising he has written so many books. Skye also discusses his works including his book With, and his latest What if Jesus was Serious? Skye’s story proves that no matter what our plans are, the Lord will lead us where he will for our good. Listen to Skye’s story today! Stories Skye shared: Living in the shadow of Wheaton College Growing up in a religiously mixed family Losing a younger brother when he was in second grade and how that affected his family Navigating different cultures Traveling a lot as a kid and how that influenced him The man who gave him a word from the Lord near Nashville Deciding to follow Christ regardless of his dad’s approval The moment that set the course for his college experience His undergrad mentor who was a bit of a mystic Arguing with his father over going to seminary Exploring many traditions of Christianity The difference between historic Evangelicalism and fundamentalism Experiencing a dark night in 2005 when he learned perseverance The discipline of worship How he started writing and where that led him Writing his book With How culture is changing and what the Church can do to engage Why he started doodling and how that turned into What if Jesus was Seri0us? Great quotes from Skye: I did not like the subculture I thought I had to buy into in order to follow Jesus. I benefited from a broad exposure to Christian traditions. Anybody who has benefited from anything I’ve done in ministry or book I’ve written or anything else you can thank an atheist.

Provoke & Inspire Podcast
Author and co-host of the Holy Post podcast, Skye Jethani, joined the guys to discuss his latest book "What If Jesus Was Serious?" Skye argues that the world isn't interested in our message not because we take Jesus too seriously, but that we don't take him seriously enough!
QAnon. Pizzagate. Conspiracy theories. Why are humans drawn to these? How has a faction of the Church latched on to the dangerous and anonymous Q and the wild theories he purports. What effect does this have on theology and social engagement?

Ep.042 - Skye Jethani | What If Jesus Was Serious?
On this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Skye Jethani. Skye is a speaker, consultant, minister, and the author of several books, including Immeasurable and What's Wrong With Religion?. He also serves as the co-host of the popular Holy Post Podcast. In Skye's most recent book, What If Jesus Was Serious?, Skye guides us through The Sermon on the Mount, to reveal how this collection of well-known teachings from Jesus is also one of the most ignored when it comes to the way so many Christians actually live their lives. What if the reason Christianity has lost its influence in culture at large isn't because we take Jesus too seriously but rather, because we don't take him seriously enough? What if, as Skye suggest, "society is hungry for precisely the kind of integrity, gentleness, kindness, and love Jesus reveals in His Sermon on the Mount?"
Skye Jethani examines Jesus’ command to “judge not” in Luke 6:37, considering how it relates to the challenges gripping our nation. Skye is an award-winning author, co-host of the Holy Post podcast, and creator of the With God Daily devotional.

Happy Monday! Bonnie and Tim had the pleasure of sitting down with Skye Jethani from the Holy Post Podcast, a frequent guest and part of the VOX Community. They have a fascinating conversation on "A Theology of Vocation." What does the Bible say about your work? What does it mean to be "called" to something? Does every job need to be under the umbrella of church and ministry? How do we know what we're called to? What about dreams and desires? All of this is covered and more!
