BCT ep. 12: The Confusing Language of Church



In this awesome episode, Dangerous talks about the shorthand phrases we use in church and how they can come to replace our understanding of our own dogma. He talks through a list of things we say in church that you may, or may not, fully understand because of our shorthands or an assumed knowledge by those leading the service.

The list is:

Son of God (particularly the son part)

Son of Man

He defeated death

Jesus died for our sins

Heaven

Hell


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. 9: The Bible has Errors; How Can I Possibly Follow Jesus Now!?



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.

Black Company Theology – ep. 7 – Judges part 1



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.

Black Company Theology – Episode 6 – Genesis



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.

Argue against his heresies in all the usual places, search up Unspokenchurch to find him on social media and email.

Black Company Theology – Episode 5 – The OG OT



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.

If you wish to see Dangerous wonking on in all his bearded, bow tie wearing glory, this episode can also be found on YouTube.

Black Company Theology – Episode 4 – Mission Statement



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?

Black Company Theology – Episode 3



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…


Black Company Theology – Episode 2



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).

The revolution reformation starts here! Exciting!

Black Company Theology – Episode 1



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.
