BCT ep. 11: The Church in Pop Culture



In rather ranty form, Dangerous talks about how the World perceives the Church. Well, OK, some of the ways. He stays on the negative side of things a fair bit. He also talks about so called ‘Christian Values’ and how they shape us and how the World sees us. He also looks at some of the reasons people see us in certain ways such as being judgemental and ‘no fun’. He finishes off with looking at how we have made Jesus waaaaay less cool than he actually is and a soupcon of spiritual warfare.

It’s definitely a ‘start a discussion’ episode so feel free to argue with him about his views on:

BCT ep. 10: How to Make the Bible Say What You Want It To



In this episode Dangerous takes a deep dive into one article called ‘5 Reasons Deborah Proves Male Leadership’ and here is not arguing whether the author is right or wrong, but dissects the author’s argument and shows how we can skew the Bible to fit our predetermined doctrines. How our ideas shape how we interpret Biblical passages and help us to find interpretations that fit our ideas, rather than what the Bible is actually saying. Or picking the verses that agree with us and ignoring those that don’t or ignoring the context of those verses.
