Rank #3: Love Transcends Religion (Think About It!!)

Podcast cover
Read more
Date: 4-6-14Location: Hemet, CAAsk yourself the question, "WHAT IF?"Joshua was raised within the evangelical tradition. Throughout the years, he served as a teacher, pastor, and evangelist at several denominations such as: Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist, and Assemblies of God. He also served as a missionary to the Philippines after graduating from seminary. Although Joshua was the type to always ask questions during his early adult years, he finally found the courage to really question some of his "fundamental" beliefs he held to as an evangelical Christian. He began questioning his understanding of God, the Bible (inerrancy), grace, the gospel, eternal hell, Satan, interfaith, and even church. Listen in as Joshua shares his heart and answers questions on important theological subjects. It might give you a different perspective on things.

Rank #8: #011 Wm. Paul Young: The Problem of Suffering and the Goodness of God (The Shack, Cross Roads, Eve)

Podcast cover
Read more

Why does a GOOD God allow evil and suffering?

In
2007, an unknown author's book was published, and it was like a bomb
exploded in the Christian world. Not only did many well-known
representatives of the faith embrace the content of the book, there were many
others who vehemently criticized it as well, labeling it as heresy.

And boy, did it create a conversation (or should I say many conversations!).

In this episode, I interview Wm. Paul Young.
Paul was born a Canadian and raised among a stone-age tribe by his
missionary parents in the highlands of Netherlands New Guinea. He is
best known for his highly-praised and controversial book The Shack which
has sold over 20 million copies to date. Since the success of his first
publication, he has written two more books, one being Cross Roads, and most recently, Eve.

IN THIS EPISODE, PAUL ANSWERS THE FOLLOWING:

• Why did The Shack receive so much attention? • Within Christianity, God is known as a loving Father. Why didn't you portray God in a masculine form? • Why is it so hard for many religious folks to accept the idea that God loves unconditionally? • Is the God of The Shack too nice where "He" no longer matches the God of the Bible (especially the OT)? • Why does a good God allow suffering? • It seems like "God allows" EVERYTHING to happen. So is God even necessary? • Does saying things like "God was with you during those horrible times" do more harm than good? • In The Shack, what did Jesus mean when he said "I will travel any road to find you”? • Does it matter what a person believes? • What are some of the themes found in Eve? • How is Eve different from your other two books? And what did you want people to take away from it? • Why was Eve was your most difficult book to write? • I heard The Shack is gonna be a movie. Can you tell us more about that? Who'll be starring in it? • Is there a book tour for Eve?

He is a regression therapist (certified by the International Between Lives Regression Network) who offers Spiritual Guidance Sessions, Past Life Soul Regressions, and Between Lives Soul Regressions to help people heal, resolve life issues, and understand their life plan. He has written the books Your Soul's Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born and Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, which explore the premise that we are all eternal souls who plan our lives, including our greatest challenges, before we're born for purposes of spiritual growth.

Rank #14: #010 Peter Enns: Why Defending the Bible Does More Harm Than Good (The Bible Tells Me So)

Podcast cover
Read more

Has defending the Bible made us unable to read it?What if the Bible isn't meant to be protected and defended? With all the messy, troubling, and weird things found in this ancient book, what if trying to make it behave itself can become a barrier to true faith?In this episode, I interview Dr. Peter Enns. He's a biblical scholar, theologian, writer and jokester. He's a contributor to the Huffington Post and Patheos. His books include Inspiration and Incarnation, The Evolution of Adam (where he questions the belief that Adam was a historical figure), and The Bible Tells Me So.IN THIS EPISODE, PETER ANSWERS THE FOLLOWING:• Where did your desire to study the Bible come from? When did it happen?• Why is there a lot of fear among Christians to share their honest questions about the Bible?• Some claim they became atheists because of the Bible. But if the Bible isn't the problem, what is?• Did your shift in thinking about the Bible affect your faith in God?• If the Bible isn't a step-by-step manual on how to live, then what value does it have for us today?• Christians claim to believe in one God. But does the bible affirm that there's only one God?• If the Bible isn't even clear about big issues like God (!!), should we read the Bible to know God?• What do you say to someone who tries to justify the violence in the Bible?• If some of the stories in the Bible aren't historically accurate, what should our approach be to the text?• How do you feel about Christians apologists defending the Bible? Are they not taking the Bible seriously?• Should we be surprised by the different versions of the same story in the Bible?• Are there any contradictions (not just apparent ones) in the four Gospels?• Do you consider the Bible to be the "Word of God"? If so, in what way?• Can our "sacred experiences" be added to the "Word of God"?• If it's not about historical accuracy, what about other religious books, such as the Koran?• How did Jesus read his Bible? Did he follow it like a rule book?

Podcast cover

In this episode of The Flipside Podcast, I chat with Preston Dennett. He has been involved in researching UFOs and the paranormal since 1986. He first became interested in OBEs following the death of his mother, and eventually learned how to go out-of-body––exploring the physical world, traveling to the Other Side, meeting deceased loved ones, rescuing lost souls, talking with spirit guides, learning about past-lives, visiting the Akashic Records, going to healing temples, and much more. OBEs soon transformed his life, and like most OBErs, he realized how important it is to educate the public about this subject.

Preston details his experiences in his book Out of Body Exploring: A Beginner’s Approach. He has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, has taught classes on various paranormal subjects, and lectures across the United States.

In this episode of The Flipside Podcast, I chat with Susanne Wilson. She's a scientifically authenticated medium & spiritual teacher in Carefree, Arizona. Born gifted, Susanne hid in the “psychic closet” while working as a corporate executive and university director, until a near death experience changed her mind about what matters most, in life, and after life.
