Unpacking Scripture On Anxiety
It's no secret we are living in stressful times. Anxiety is at incredibly high levels, leading to all sorts of health issues. Today, I share some of my own anxious thoughts about this current season of life, and unpack what scripture says on anxiety. While this video addresses anxiety in this particular season of pandemic, the scriptural principles are applicable to any season of life. I'll be unpacking two specific scriptures on anxiety today. Our most famous scripture on this topic is probably Philippians 4:6, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. The other scripture we'll look at today is Jude 1:20-21, But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. Here are a couple resources on the impacts of anxiety on our sleep and health: https://www.columbiapsychiatry.org/news/covid-q-insomnia https://www.health.com/condition/infectious-diseases/coronavirus/cant-sleep-during-quarantine-insomnia A Free Resource On Anxiety My wife has written an ebook called Anxious In Nothing: 5 Prayers For Anxiety.

There’s an old saying that says only 2 things are guaranteed in life: death and taxes. In the last episode I discussed the concepts of current life expectancy rates, radical life extension, and preparing your children for the 22nd century, because current research is doing its best to try and curb death for lengthy periods of time, or even in definitely. But there’s always two sides to every coin, and we really have to live in surround sound. We have to look at both sides, and listen to the dialogue coming from both ends of the spectrum. So on the flip side of that conversation of radical life extension lays the very real understanding that someday we will die. Regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status, geographic location, or any other variable all of us will one day end up as a worm buffet. Except in the Bible we see the stories of both Enoch and Elijah that never tasted death. The post biblical Jewish Midrash actually lists 8 people. Outside of these exceptions the rest of us fall under the category of those who will eventually kick the bucket. There’s this old Latin Christian theory and practice called Momento Mori, which translated means “Remember that you will die.” You can find the full show notes, links, and resources at http://danielpassini.org/asystematic-theology-010-momento-mori Music Credit: Artist: Pierce Murphy Song: Hey Mercy URL: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Pierce_Murphy/This_Isnt_Magic_It_Is_Just_Music/Pierce_Murphy_-_This_Isnt_Magic_It_Is_Just_Music-_A_Demo_-_10_Hey_Mercy

John Allen Chau, The North Sentinel Island, & The Question We Should Ask
John Allen Chau was recently killed on the North Sentinel Island. I have seen vitriol and hatred for both sides of the argument concerning his actions, but everyone missed the one one question we really should have been asking.

What Can The Amish Teach Us About Technology And Community?
The Amish are often looked at as the most austere form of Christianity. The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions the Amish community is "anti-technology." The first images that show up in our minds are those of bonnets, horse drawn carriages, and farming communities stuck in the 18th century. So, what can the Amish teach us about technology and community? In today's episode of Asystematic Theology I explore the 3 questions the Amish use to when approaching any new technology.

Did Adam And Eve Have Belly Buttons? Imago Dei And The Body Of Christ
In today's episode of Asystematic Theology I explore belly buttons. It's a funny topic, but I ponder the question Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons? I share some interesting history about artwork with Adam and Eve. Also, does the body of Christ have I belly button? And since we are made in the image of God, does that mean God has a belly button? On the show notes blog post you can find artwork through the ages, as well as addition resources.

Cambridge And A Cloud Of Witnesses
In today's episode I share about a recent trip to Cambridge, England and how it relates to our Christian walk. America and England do not understand time and distance the same. Have you ever stepped into a 900 year old building? When I did it made scripture come alive in a new way. I also share some photos in the blog post associated with this episode. I unravel some of Hebrews 12, and share how we live in community in the context of today, and in light of eternity. Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. ____________ Have you ever stepped into an ancient building? How did it change you, your thinking, or your understanding of God? Share your thoughts in a comment below.

What Is Asystematic Theology?
Welcome to the very first episode of Asystematic Theology. Today I break down what it is and share a story that shows when we try to clean up life it actually does more harm than good. There is life in the messiness, outside of the box. You can find the story in "Messy: The Power Of Disorder To Transform Our Lives" by Tim Harford.
