GUEST: CHRIS ANDERSON, pastor and author, Theology That Sticks“Houston, we have a problem.” That's a slight misquote version of what an Apollo 13 astronaut said to NASA Mission Control in Houston after an explosion harmed their spacecraft back in 1970.That was a physical, life-threatening problem. But there are even bigger God-dishonoring problems in the Evangelical church today. The preaching of weak or unsound doctrine is one. Another is the message and methodology of music in the church.While music in sound churches over the centuries was mainly congregational singing of Psalms and hymns with or without musical instruments, that all changed over the past 60 years with the introduction of Christian Contemporary Music (CCM). The worldview driving this believes that the form of rock 'n' roll, soft rock, and rap glorifies God and attracts people to Christianity by simply swapping secular lyrics for Christian lyrics.And yet the result has been compromise. Instead of congregations belting out inspired Psalms or sound hymns, shallow, repetitive, mesmerizing, error-filled songs fill nearly every space in Evangelicalism.The water may have flooded over the dam but our guest this weekend and next will help Christians and churches select “songs, hymns, and spiritual songs” (Ephesians 5) that are sound in theology, honoring to God and edifying for us. His name is Chris Anderson. He's a former pastor of 25 years and author of several well-known hymns, including “His Robes for Mine”. He is also the author of the new book, Theology That Sticks—The Life-Changing Power of Exceptional Hymns.

There's obviously something wrong with Evangelicalism. Despite seemingly unending scandals at the hands of celebrity pastors and megachurches, we continue choosing the charismatic leader over the “boring” institution of the church. Is there a way to break this Christian celebrity cycle? Today, Keith talks with Katelyn Beaty, former editor at Christianity Today and author of Celebrities for Jesus, to find out. Katelyn shares her own definition of a celebrity pastor, making the crucial distinction between celebrity and fame. She explains why average Christians are so drawn to celebrity pastors, dissects the Evangelical industrial complex, and calls for the church to reexamine its relationship to celebrity Christians and institutions.

One of the most popular phrases in modern Evangelicalism is that we each must have a 'personal relationship with Jesus Christ'. But what exactly does that mean? And what, if any, is the scriptural basis for such a statement? In this podcast, Andy answers those questions, helping you understand if and how you achieve such a relationship.

In episode 4 of Season 3, we discuss how the white Christian church is one of the primary drivers of racism in America. We speak with Dr. Bernard Lafayette, a central activist and leader of the original Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s. We also interview the Rev. Dr. Julian Cook, the Director of Houghton University Buffalo, who outlines the role of the white church and Christian theology in the development of systemic racism in American culture. In conclusion, we speak with Charmaine Pruitt, a black Christian who reflects on being part of a white evangelical church in Texas during Donald Trump's rise to power.

How is it that some modern churches deny the essentials taught in the Bible while other churches are sound doctrinally but have disconnected from the culture and have no impact on people outside the church? The answer is in how the churches view the Bible, and this session gives an overview of the thinkers who influenced the modern Christian religious leaders. We show how Descartes, Hume, Kant, Kierkegaard, and Darwin influenced the Graf-Wellhausen Documentary Hypothesis (JEPD theory), and how fundamental churches reacted to it. The session also gives some hope of how several current movements are fixing the problem. Support the show
"Space, Sound, & the Body in American Evangelicalism" with Dr. Tucker AdkinsEvangelicals are perhaps the most discussed group in American Christianity, but such conversations often revolve around two distinctions: politics and theology. Evangelicals vote this way, and evangelicals believe these things. In this way, we typically cast evangelicalism as longstanding, identifiable sets of ideological and doctrinal convictions that steer conservative voting blocs and vaguely underpin “born-again” belief. By contrast, this lecture urges us to consider how the physical world—especially space, sound, and the body—have always distinguished so-called “evangelicals” from other Christians in the United States.Paying particular attention to its early American figures, this presentation asserts that “evangelicalism” first took shape through revivalists' manipulation of their bodies, voices, and terrain. Black, white, and indigenous people who received the “new birth” made their movement legible on the landscape, by expelling “frightfull Shrieks & groans” during their preachers' cutting sermons, gathering outside of consecrated church spaces, and succumbing to uncontrollable bodily “exercises.” By foregrounding examples of evangelicals' physical, lived religious experiences, we find that their controversial choreography of space, sound, and the body—not just what they believed—radically redefined what it meant to be Protestant in America.Dr. Tucker Adkins teaches religious history at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, MI. His focus is on religious experience and lay spirituality in the early modern British Atlantic world.

At the beginning of each of Michael Flynn's ReAwaken tour visit they blow a Shofar (a ram's-horn trumpet used by ancient Jews in religious ceremonies and as a battle signal). They do this because there is a belief that they are in a spiritual war against their political opponents. Many equate this level of theocratic theatre with the term Christian Nationalism, but the rabbit hole goes much deeper. Josh and Will journey down this rabbit hole and talk with one of the foremost experts on the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and Dominionism, Professor André Gagné. They discuss the origins of the NAR, and how its goal of gaining Dominion over seven "mountains" of influence in western society can disrupt the pluralistic order of our society. If you have always been curious about the seven mountain mandate, five-fold ministry, Christian Nationalism, and the religious right, this is one episode you will not want to miss!Articles referenced in the episode:CHRISTIAN RIGHT DENIALISM IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN EVER: A REPORTER'S GUIDE TO THE NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATIONWHEN IT COMES TO SOCIETAL DOMINION, THE DETAILS MATTER: A REPORTER'S GUIDE TO THE NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION, PART IISTATEMENT ON NAR & CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM ANSWERS FEW QUESTIONS BUT EXPOSES GROWING RIFTS IN THE MOVEMENTNAR & CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM STATEMENTNational Conservatism: A Statement of PrinciplesTrumpists Call on Supreme Court to Let States ‘Establish Religion Within Their Borders'Guest Bio:André Gagné is Full Professor in the Department of Theological Studies at Concordia.

CPT Podcast co-hosts Todd Wilson, Joel Lawrence, and Zachary Wagner reflect on the 2022 CPT theology conference, Reconstructing Evangelicalism. What role can relational connectivity and diversity play in the future of the American church? How do we navigate tension resulting from diversity? How do we define evangelicalism? What historical axis do we use? How does Christian triumphalism intersect with the evangelical movement? What is the place of triumph and cruciformity in gospel ministry?
Evangelicalism has rapidly become one of the most significant religious movements in the modern world. An umbrella term that encompasses many Protestant denominations that share core tenets of Christianity, evangelicalism is foremost defined by its disciples' consideration of the Bible as the ultimate moral and historical authority, the desire to evangelize or spread the faith, and the value of religious conversion known as being “born again.” Purchase your copy of Evangelicalism - https://amzn.to/3h862Qt Purchase your copy of Can I Believe? - https://amzn.to/3U3BnlU *Contains amazon affiliate links.

This week Josh and Will address the issue of morality and the politicization of it by many on the right. To help them unpack this very complex topic they speak with Dr. Anthea Butler, who is the Geraldine R. Segal Professor in American Social Thought, and chair of the department of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Their conversation traces the racist exploitation of the Bible during the slavery era, and resulted in the creation of the Negro Bible. They then turn towards modern day politics and talk about how the Republican Party has drifted away from the days of Lincoln and evolved into their civil war opponents, the Dixiecrats. During this very energetic interview, you will learn how the Bible has been perverted in order to gain moral superiority over those whom they consider "the other", and some insight as to what this portends for 2024. Guest Bio:Anthea Butler is Geraldine R. Segal Professor in American Social Thought, and chair of the department of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. A historian of African American and American religion, Professor Butler's research and writing spans African American religion and history, race, politics, Evangelicalism, gender and sexuality, media, and popular culture.

What is an "Evangelical Entrepreneur"? There is a long history of Evangelical Entrepreneurs in this country. We trace a long line of leading figures from the likes of Dwight L. Moody to Billy Sunday to Billy Graham and Jerry Falwell to Paula White and Robert Jeffress. Are there common themes and grievances in the messages of these leaders that we're still hearing today? What are some of the hallmarks of Evangelicalism that led to its close alignment with the Republican Party? What do Evangelicals see in Donald Trump? We explore all that and more in this conversation with David Clary. David Clary is an award-winning author and news editor at The San Diego Union-Tribune. Clary's latest book is Soul Winners: The Ascent of America's Evangelical Entrepreneurs, which we discuss at length in this episode. David's previous book, Gangsters to Governors: The New Bosses of Gambling in America, explores how and why states have encouraged and promoted the expansion of legalized gambling in America. Interestingly, that book was cited five times in the U.S. Supreme Court's majority opinion that struck down the federal ban on sports gambling in May 2018. Before joining the Union-Tribune in 2002, David worked in a variety of editing and design roles at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland. He is a native of Central New York and studied Journalism and PoliSci at Syracuse University. www.sandiegouniontribune.com www.davidclaryauthor.com/ julieroys.com/ twitter.com/coreysnathan

Sometimes it's appropriate to carefully weigh all sides of an issue, patiently sorting through reasons, listening to perspectives, and respectfully dialoging with people who believe differently. We spend most of our time on this podcast trying to commend and practice that sort of thing. On the other hand, sometimes ideas are just bad, and it's appropriate to say when something is dumb or harmful and move on. As Qohelet of Ecclesiastes might say, there's a time for argument, and a time for derision. You're gonna get a little more of the second thing in this episode.We tackle the doctrine of biblical inerrancy, the 20th century invention of white American evangelical men, which holds that the Bible is without error in the original manuscripts. We discuss where the view comes from, what seems to motivate it, the most prominent version of it accepted by contemporary evangelicals (the "Chicago Statement"), the influence it's had, and why we think it's hopelessly misguided. Towards the end we also discuss the similarities between inerrancy and originalism about the American constitution. Just to make sure we piss off as many people as possible.Some of the resources mentioned or discussed in the conversation are:The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy"How the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy became a litmus test"Five Views on Biblical InerrancyPete Enns on his panel discussion on inerrancy at the 2013 ETS meetingThe beverage featured in the episode is Laphroaig 10 Year Scotch.The beverage tasting is at 2:26.

Costi Hinn had a personal grievance against Michael O'Fallon ( @Sovereign Nations ) Instead of just addressing O'Fallon, Costi chose to wage a Twitter war on the few guys in Evangelicalism who actually have spines (such as Doug Wilson ( @Canon Press ). Costi has been a hero in fighting one dragon (the prosperity gospel), but over the past few years he has sat on the sidelines with this current dragon (social justice/civil tyranny). The problem is that going hard in the paint against the prosperity gospel (which truly damns souls to hell) doesn't get you banned from social media. It doesn't cost you your job. It doesn't make you an enemy of the state. Nancy Pelosi doesn't care about Reformed churches calling out Benny Hinn and Hillsong. In other words, it's not nearly as costly. Costi sat out of the harder fight. The guys who had the guts to go to war against this current dragon are now receiving some of their due praise. Costi would rather critique their sword fighting techniques (such as criticizing Doug Wilson's rhetoric) than thank them for seeing/fighting an enemy which Costi ignored. All that said, it's vital to mention that Costi Hinn didn't just memory-hole his mistake, he actually apologized for it. In other words, Costi did something Big Eva would never do. He repented. I sincerely hope it stays that way.
David French is in studio with Skye Jethani and Phil Vischer for a special edition of French Friday. First, they discuss new survey results showing most evangelicals hold shockingly heretical beliefs about the nature of Jesus, but they are absolutely clear about sexual ethics. What does it mean for evangelicalism to make doctrine optional and sexual purity essential? Then, comments from leading conservative voices appear to contradict core conservative values. Can conservatism still be defined, or has it deteriorated into a reactionary movement to “own the libs” and nothing more? Plus, David and Skye nerd-out about the new Amazon series, “The Rings of Power.” 0:00 - Intro 1:55 - Is evangelicalism about Jesus or sexual ethics? 26:24 - Can conservatism be defined? 57:57 - Nerd corner Links and resources mentioned: The Dispatch - https://thedispatch.com “Evangelicals Decenter Jesus” by David French (The Atlantic Newsletter) - https://newsletters.theatlantic.com/the-third-rail/632df352c5c055002255fa9f/us-evangelical-christian-republican/ “The American right's future involves waging a ‘religious battle' against the left, leaders say at a conservative conference” (NBC) - https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2022-election/american-rights-future-involves-waging-religious-battle-left-leaders-s-rcna48961 Fuller Youth Institute - https://fulleryouthinstitute.org/stickyfaith “The Evangelical Question in the History of American Religion” by Kirsten Sanders (The Hedgehog Review) - https://hedgehogreview.com/issues/the-use-and-abuse-of-history/articles/the-evangelical-question-in-the-history-of-american-religion Holy Post episode 526 (includes discussion of above article) - https://www.holypost.com/post/episode-526-was-the-constitution-divinely-inspired-with-kaitlyn-schiess National Conservatism: A Statement of Principles - https://nationalconservatism.org/national-conservatism-a-statement-of-principles/ “How Do Christians Fit Into the Two-Party System?

In this episode Amy and Michelle ask, “What has Christianity come to?” There is an interesting study called The State of Theology survey that's done every two years by Ligonier Ministries, and it has just released its latest findings about what Christians believe about God, salvation, ethics, and the Bible. And it seems like professing […]
The death of Queen Elizabeth has many wondering about the future of Christianity in the UK. The Queen was outspoken about her faith in Jesus Christ, but how will King Charles change what it means for the monarch to be the “Defender of the Faith”? We all know evangelicals are divided by politics, but a new report by Catholic bishops says Roman Catholics are too. What can we learn from one another? Poverty among kids in the U.S. has declined dramatically in recent decades. Liberals say it's the result of government programs. Conservative credit economic growth. Who is right? Then, Anglican pastor Aaron Damiani talks with Skye about his journey from megachurch burnout to life-giving liturgy. His new book, “Earth Filled with Heaven,” is written to Christians skeptical about tradition, rituals, and sacraments, but they might be the key to saving evangelicalism from itself. Plus, why you shouldn't drink coffee before shopping or trust ads featuring dogs.
