a snarky take on Christian power structures

Who doesn’t love a good dose of authoritarianism? We’ve seen Trump’s desire to rule without boundaries. We’ve seen it in Jerry Falwell Jr. and other Christian leaders exercise it. No one seems to like the idea of authoritarianism, but Christians continue to accept and embrace it in the local church. The church was never meant to be an exclusive club ruled by an iron fist and a Bible. It was also never meant to be run by tyrants called pastors, yet it happens every day from a majority of clergy in America. Do we have to stand for this? No. Let’s talk about how this happens and how to move past these little men that are drunk on imaginary power. It’s not the way the church was meant to be run or practiced.

Come along for the ride as we skewer through life, culture, and spirituality in the face of a changing world.

a snarky take on the demise of evangelicalism

Evangelical voters rejoiced when their Orange Messiah was elected. They continue to speak of his greatness in making America great again. All of this alining of faith and politics in a move for power has come at a cost. What does the future of the evangelical church look like? In this power grab, leaders have lost sight of their biblical mission and even more importantly, their congregations. Church attendance is declining during the Trump administration. A price must be paid, but will the evangelicals even care. They’re playing the short game, but the long game is leading them towards their own demise. Is it too soon to say that evangelicalism has officially gone down the toilet?

Come along for the ride as we skewer through life, culture, and spirituality in the face of a changing world.
