Paul Talks About a Weaponized Bible with Rev Timoth
In homage to Pride Month, we talk about a Jesus who demonstrated a life to sit with and be an ally to those who have been historically marginalized by the power structures, in our culture. Rev Timoth Sylva talks with Pastor Paul of how a weaponized Bible changes those who claim to follow Christ into the ones holding the rocks, rather than the ones standing with them in front of the condemners. Rev Timoth is a creator on TikTok and a pastor and shares how evangelicalism in Western Christianity was the culprit and how we can start to see that differently when we look at how Jesus interacted with people.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism. A Unconventional Conversation with Loren D'Amico

Was It Real? How To View Old Church Experience? A Conversation about Toronto & Bethel Movements
Spiritual "movements" such as the 'Toronto Blessing' and the Bethel movement out of Redding, CA have had profound impact on people's lives. For those who have left our Church communities behind, how do we look back at what we knew? Fondly? With disappointment? With a feeling we were deceived? Maybe the answer is all of the above. Tara Jean Stevens asked all those questions in a powerful podcast called Heaven Bent. She still loves her past and the community she left behind, but is asking "what really happened?" It's a conversation you won't want to miss.

What is an American? A Discussion About Race
How do we open ourselves to hearing the pain of others without it making us defensive or shut down? By making the choice to hear their pain and to feel our own. NPE's Paul Swearengin listens to community supporter Ashley Rojas as she shares the pain of a people group that often feels unheard in our culture. This conversation is challenging, but it's brilliant. We are people who are called to allow our hearts to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Let some of the mind-renewal happen today as you hear the expression of pain and celebration of someone that might not fit your exact expectation of what it is to be "American." Ashley Rojas is an expert in the field of community care and activism as the Executive Director of Fresno Barrios Unidos. She's also someone who has "put her money where her mouth is" having moved from the Bay Area where she had amazing opportunities, to Fresno, CA to really deal with the mess of caring for people who need the resources to be able to care for themselves. Don't miss this chance to feel the pain of those around us and to understand more fully some things we might not understand on our own.

Church, It's not US; It's YOU! Conversation w/ a Blue Dot in a Red State
I'm always amazed at the inability of evangelicals to look in the mirror and think, could these voices of deconstruction have something valid to say? The excuse is often - well, they're just hurt from religious upbringing and rejecting the Church of their youth! But what do you say to someone who didn't grow up in the church and loves the Church but finds they've had to walk away? Lindsay Booker is someone who's asking the church to consider that maybe it's not us. It's you. Why would a successful entrepreneur in Birmingham, Alabama be a blue dot in the middle of a very red state and city putting livelihoods, relationships and even personal wellbeing at risk to say, "I can't be a part of that anymore." Who is the B ham blue dot, the blue dot in the middle of Birmingham, Alabama, a red state? #TikTokPastor #evangelicalish #ReligiousRightReligiouslyWrong #unconventionalconversations #NonPartisanEvangelical #GodIsNOTmadAtYou #MindRenewal @PastorPaul_TikTok

War and Binary Thinking: An NPE Discussion w/ Pastor Paul
With Afghanistan as a backdrop, can Christians start to consider that we might not being displaying Christ as much as we think we are. Shouldn't the word "Christian" truly means "one who looks like Christ?" Does our America-First, Military-worshipping view of ourselves line up with Jesus' New Testament teaching? Or are we still bringing in the parts of the Old Testament that we Pick and Choose. Pastor Paul has a WWJD thought for Christians to consider. #TikTokPastor #evangelicalish #ReligiousRightReligiouslyWrong #NPEpodcast #NonPartisanEvangelical #GodIsNOTmadAtYou #MindRenewal @PastorPaul_TikTok
