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.

In this astounding episode Dangerous begins to look into Biblical Inerrancy (the Bible has no mistakes) and quickly veers into the idea that we change the Bible to fit our doctrines. He looks at how, in order to make Inerrancy work, people change the Bible to fit the doctrine. He then goes on to look at the same thing in terms of male only leadership of churches.

Tell Dangerous your thoughts at:
In this episode, Dangerous gets properly angry about the prosperity gospel and how Satan is using it to screw the church over. And how we, as the church, do little to nothing about it. The episode is supposed to be about how heathen culture has seeped into the church and that is a big example. He also covers Mega Churches and how church has become it’s own purpose and how what we now think of as church is, probably a construct of Satan.
Wow. Heavy stuff.
In this sweet, sweet episode, Dangerous takes a squizz at the Book of Judges. He does an overview (and will look in more detail next episode) and looks at how it connects to us today. He talks a lot about how we resonate with the Bible’s good guys and asks whether that’s really us? Are we the righteous prophets and Judges or the failing Israelites? He also delves into how the Judges in the book deteriorate and the importance of realising that most of the, so-called, Biblical Heroes and more Anti-heroes. The importance of realising that their actions are not necessarily deemed good by God just because He is using them to fulfill a mission.

In this, another thrilling episode, Dangerous attempts an overview of the Old Testament and doesn’t get further than Genesis. But what he does do is look at the relationship between creation, Noah and Abraham and traces the line of God’s plan through. It is, he valiantly argues, the building block of our mission as set down in the Great Commission. The blueprint of God’s plan for us and the growth of the Kingdom. And in thus arguing, Dangerous refocuses the, er, focus of Christianity. Interesting stuff.

Phew, another episode of cracking content and finally we’re getting into the bones of the podcast. This episode Dangerous looks at the Bible and particularly the Old Testament and what it’s made of. A quick squizz at manuscript dating and how scholarly input can actually help us.
He also starts to look into the tensions we hold as Christians; how we can believe two opposing viewpoints at the same time (generally by ignoring one or the other as the situation fits) and how that affects our reading of the Bible.

In this fine episode, Dangerous runs us through the end point of The Black Company. To reform Christianity back into a powerful movement, rather than the tradition led institution with all the baggage that it carries. In Acts the bad guys call Christians ‘those that turn the World upside down’. Does that sound like the 21st Century Western church to you?

In this episode, Dangerous looks at Song of Songs and the dangers of ignoring it or interpreting it in the light of what we want Christianity to be. He also takes a brief look at porn and how it is affecting our society and muses on whether society would look differently had Christianity not ignored Song of Songs and made sex sinful…
In this episode, Dangerous begins to look closer at why we might need a reformation of Christianity in the Western world. He covers, well, loads really, but he does talk about the key things that have lost focus in the modern church. The Holy Spirit; service; Heaven/the afterlife and Evil (with a capital E – actual demons and stuff rather than naughty people).
revolution reformation starts here! Exciting!

In this brand new podcast that builds upon the ideas from “Stuff We Don’t Talk about In Church”, ‘Dangerous’ Walker starts to outline why he thinks the Western, Protestant church needs a reformation. Why he thinks it’s broken. This podcast series will delve into the many facets of this, challenging us with the idea that we have, 100s of years ago, formed our brand of Christianity and chosen the parts of the Bible to fit into it.
