We talk with April Ajoy, a well-known viral TikToker, YouTuber and podcaster. She describes herself as a “recovering conservative, humorously detoxing religion.” Raised as a pastor's kid, April was deep in Evangelicalism to the point of working for The 700 Club and singing her original song, America Say Jesus on The Jim Bakker Show. While deconstructing from fundamentalism, she walked away from her Christian nationalist beliefs and began to make irreverent and funny videos lampooning modern Evangelical culture and church life.

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 12 Today, it seems we can't agree on anything anymore. Movements like Marxist social justice and Christian Nationalism have inserted conflict into Evangelicalism, separating brothers, decimating institutions, and muddying established doctrine. In this message, Dr. Jon Benzinger laments this fact, calls Christians to unity with other Christians (Rom 12:16, 1 Cor 1:10, Eph 4:3-6), and to stop listening to Christians who are causing division (Rom 16:17, 2 Cor 11:4, Titus 3:10). The Evangelical church has been a united bulwark against cultural revolutions for decades. Those who see us as their enemies infiltrate our institutions and introduce mini-revolutions into the church because they actually listened to Jesus when He said that a house divided against itself cannot stand (Matt 12:25). If we can't stop the in-fighting and unite against the real enemy—satanic tyranny on both the right and the left—it could be too late for our Republic. https://sovereignnations.com Support Sovereign Nations: https://paypal.me/sovnations https://patreon.com/sovnations Follow Sovereign Nations: https://sovereignnations.com/subscribe/ © 2023 Sovereign Nations.

It's officially season 4, and the Woman Beings sit down to talk about things that felt like a huge deal growing up in evangelicalism (but really weren't).

Our children are in danger everywhere, both outside and inside the home. Some parents are oblivious to physical dangers; others desire to wrap their children from head to toe in bubble wrap before they send them out to play. Overprotection can sissify children, especially boys. Negligence and foolish risk-taking can kill them. Life is precious and can end in a moment. That truth must factor into our parenting. Nevertheless, we must protect the ability of our children to learn wisdom by getting hurt.Physical dangers are not the only dangers our children face. Spiritual and sexual dangers are also constant. One of the best protections we can provide our children is a deep understanding of Original Sin. Subsequent episodes will delve more into the sexual dangers.PS: In this episode, the book Tim couldn't remember was John Eldridge's “Wild at Heart.” Released in 2001, the book sold over four million copies in the U.S. alone, starting the man's movement still thriving today among conservative Christians. The Religious News Service summarized Eldridge's message: "The book sought to empower men to realize 'dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress'.”Out of Our Minds Podcast: Pastors who say what they think.

It is critical – especially in these last prophetic moments that are unfolding in the earth - for the man or woman who professes to be a true follower of Jesus Christ the Lord - to know what and why they believe, and to have the Scriptural backing to defend their faith. As it is written in 1 Peter 3:15: “…sanctify the Lord in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to every man who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”With that mandate as our foundation, in this segment, we are going to focus on what Islam teaches about Jesus, for He alone is the central point of man's hope and confidence unto Eternal Life!Support the showVisit our website: https://agapelightministries.com/
While much attention has been given to the Evangelical contingent of American conservative Christianity, it's important to note that even though systems of worship may be different, Pentecostal Christians navigate sexuality, relationships, and bodies in similarly troubling ways as Evangelical and Mormon communities do. This week, we're thrilled to have Teddi and Nick, co-hosts of the podcast Oh God I Forgot About That, to talk more about how their upbringings in Pentecostal communities impacted understandings of gender, dating relationships, and sexuality. We talk specifically about: Defining EMPish (10:00): “So in the post-Christian, in the deconstruction world, the denominations and the language that gets used most commonly is Evangelical. But what we find is that Mormon churches and Pentecostal churches, that their structures are very similar to Evangelical churches, Baptist churches, and non-denominational churches. So the styles of worship may be a little bit different, but the leadership structures, the communication patterns within the church for the sake of our expertise, the communication around bodies and sexuality, very, very similar.” Jeremiah highlights and defines the similarities between the EMPish circles covered. Even though some of these churches may come off as more charismatic by incorporating music and fun, they still project the same messages around sexuality, marriage, and purity. Purity Rings (20:00): “So we worked at a stable together and I remember her like showing me this like glistening ring on her fourth finger and she was about maybe 14, 15. And she explained the promise ring concept to me. And you know, it was all so exciting. It was like, she got to pick out the ring and her dad gave it to her. And then the Pentecostal church that I was in, we had something called the Missionettes program for girls. I want to say around 14, you had the opportunity to do a promise ring ceremony where the girls wore white and then they got their ring from their fathers. And then the whole church attended. So there was just so much excitement built up around it and I, it was one of the first times that I like paused and was sort of like, oh, like, this is like something that I'm planning for that I am anticipating, which the great irony of this being, I wouldn't have been thinking about sex had the church not brought it to my attention, like I was still very innocent.” Teddy shares her experience around purity rings and talks about how the Church brings sex to the forefront of children's minds when sex would not have been on their minds if not for the constant shame. The Church consistently shames people for thinking about sex and sexuality all while making that the main focus of sermons, learning, and life. Jeremiah adds: “Teddy, thinking about the role that fathers play in this fairy tale as well. The father-daughter relationship in the evangelical and Pentecostal church. The connection between the father-daughter relationship and the purity ring ceremonies. The fact that father's jobs in theories are to simultaneously protect their daughters from objectification. But Teddy, also like what you're saying, protect their daughters from objectification when they're like eight.” Double-Edged Sword (23:00 - 25:00): “[This] two-pronged thing where sexuality was always pitched to me and the other boys as a source of temptation. It was exclusively and explicitly a temptation that was inevitable and shameful. And any single woman or girl you know could be the target of this uncontrollable thing that you unleash, right? So it created sort of this two-pronged, like, struggle with any sort of friendship that could be potentially viewed as a romantic relationship, you know? Having friends that were girls. When I was a boy, just, oh, are they thinking this about me, or, oh, you know, I try to just do something that's a normal friendship thing, and it gets misconstrued as an advance, or something that needs to be defended against” Nick speaks about the double-edged sword the Church presents young men with, which is that they cannot control their sexual impulses and any attempt at friendship is misconstrued into an advance. Julia then adds: “I think I say basically every single episode that what you're describing around the gender construction is this awful combination of both misandry and misogyny at the same time that you as a man are this inherently sexual predator. And that women exist as floating bodies that are the object of objectification. And also, for men, there's this double bind that they are these sexual monsters, and that's how God made them. But also they have to fight it, and it's such a mindfuck!” She highlights once again this idea that God made men sexual predators and they must fight this instinct, but also how this idea shrinks women down to essentially objects because they cannot and do not have any sexual desires or thoughts. Passiveness (32:00): “It was just boring as hell and at its worst it made you passive in your own life. It made you just a spectator to your own life. So I think that that probably explains why I didn't even become really all that interested or willing to pursue relationships until college, or even like curious about my identity until college because there was no script for what it looked like for women to pursue, talk about these things, explore these things because you were just waiting.” Teddy talks about how women were given no script or support or even an idea of what sexuality looked like for them. This plays back into the light switch metaphor touched on last week, and how the script essentially does not exist until your wedding night, and suddenly it's just supposed to flip on then and there. “And you could argue that that passiveness also creates another narrative about women being objects in the passivity. Prior to marriage, women are essentially these asexual beings, and that asexuality is what protects the purity of the relationship.” Julia highlights how the idea that women are asexual pre-marriage, protects the integrity of the relationship from the sexual predator man that they are dating, feeding into the misandry/misogyny the Church spews. Infantilization (42:00): “That double bind is perfectly encapsulated by these two moments that I very vividly have in my mind. The first is, I remember going on a trip with her church, and her youth pastor had taken over the church, and we sat next to each other on the church van, and he leans in the church van over her, and he starts, like, jamming his hand between our thighs. And like doing this and I scooted over and he goes, just making sure there's room for the Holy Spirit. And then he closed the door ominously on and we went off. So there's that like infantilization.” Nick covers an aspect of the Church's approach to sex and sexuality which is the infantilization of teenagers and adults. Within EMPish circles, people are encouraged to get married incredibly young, which is a very adult decision, yet they have hands jammed between their thighs in Church vans to leave room for the Holy Spirit.

Did you ever wonder why the big brother in the prodigal son story was so jealous when his wayward sybling came home? Maybe you can relate. As Pastor Paul demonstrates in this modern day version of this parable, it's a desire to withhold grace from others that is so fostered by a religious mindset - none of us should want to be that "big brother."

On today's episode I felt compelled to share the divine wisdom I received when I pulled some cards for myself. Growing up Evangelical and really any type of Christianity, we believed ANYTHING that wasn't In the bible and claimed to be spiritual was evil. As I mentioned before I think it's very telling that in the bible only men - and the holiest of them all, were permitted to talk with God. AND of whole bible only 9 women were considered Prophetesses. The rest were demonic and to this day women that are spiritual and receive divine wisdom but aren't Christians are viewed as evil. As you know I think that's horseshit, not to mention the cards are more like introspective prompts and a tool to strengthen your intuition, similar to a sermon or a BOOK where God imparted wisdom to the menfolk. So if we are on the same page, tune in to today's episode. This will be the first of many ,where I'll tap into the collective energy (because we are all connected) and bring some insight and wisdom to your life and the situations you may be facing.

How do you deal with change? Do you consider it inevitable? Do you not like change because a pocket full of coins is annoying? Jokes aside, Emily is asking today why it's so hard to affect change in certain church communities and why some changes in personal beliefs come with such high contrast. And Stephen goes on a fiery rant against "thoughts and prayers", fulfilling his role as the shows' angry atheist.Mentioned in the episode: Sorites Paradox Wiki Black Mirror: Bandersnatch IMDB 141.

Welcome to episode ninety-six of New Creation Conversations. I'm joined this week by writer, professor, and expert on theology and literature, Dr. Karen Swallow Prior. Karen did her PhD at the State University of New York at Buffalo with a specialization in eighteenth century British literature. Karen taught in seminaries for a number of years, and she is a contributing editor for Comment, a founding member of The Pelican Project, a Senior Fellow at Trinity Forum, a Senior Fellow at the International Alliance for Christian Education, a Senior Fellow at the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture and is a former member of the Faith Advisory Council of the Humane Society of the United States. She and her husband live on a 100-year-old homestead in central Virginia with dogs, chickens, and lots of books.Karen has written and contributed to several books. We discuss her most recent work, The Evangelical Imagination: How Stories, Images, and Metaphors Created a Culture in Crisis (Brazos Press). In the book she examines evangelical history – both good and bad. By analyzing the literature, art, and popular cultural that has surrounded evangelicalism, she unpacks some of the movement's most deeply held concepts, ideas, values, and practices to consider what is Christian rather than merely cultural. The result is a clearer path forward for evangelicals amid their current identity crisis – and insight for others who want a deeper understanding of what was best about the evangelical movement, and what possibilities might still be in its future. As many of you know, I am a fan of theology and literature, and I love the way Karen blends those too with important cultural and philosophical analysis. It is a very thoughtful and helpful book. And a very fun conversation.
