Ep. 80 – Telling People You Don’t Believe In God

We’ve been asked lately by a number of people how, when, or if they should tell their families they no longer believe in God.

This is our attempt to answer that question.

As always we are not experts, we just google this stuff.

You Put Your Faith in People Instead of God

It’s that classic question you get when you mention all the damage churches have done, “that’s because you shouldn’t put your trust in people, you should put your trust in God.”

Oh cool, but like are we going to do anything about the bad people in the church or am I just supposed to feel guilty for trusting wrong.

Ep. 79 – Christians and Slavery

Christian apologists have defended over and over again why the bible defends slavery, or at least try to argue why it doesn’t, but what does the bible actually say?

How did Christian slave owners in America justify owning humans? And why do so many Christians still defend Confederate monuments today?

As always we are not experts, we just google this stuff.

We Aren’t Just Angry

It can be really frustrating when you are discussing your deconstruction and someone interrupts and says that you are just angry.

Why does this happen so much? Is there any truth to it? Is it helpful to the conversation?

When you grow up religious or with any supernatural worldview there can be immense pressure to discover your purpose or God’s plan for your life.

What if that’s not the most important thing? What if it’s ok not to be the chosen one?
