Free to be Small

flowerThere is such a drive in our old nature for fame and recognition. This often creeps into our lives as believers and causes us to view our actions and life in Christ as insignificant unless we’re doing big things that are noticed by multitudes of people. Yet, more often than not God meets us and impacts the world around us in the small things of our daily lives that often seem insignificant. Real freedom and joy is found in Him when we’re free from the drive to do big things to be noticed. This freedom usually comes with the price of suffering so that we’re free from the pride of our old nature and can embrace what Father is doing no matter how small and how little we’ll be noticed. In Him, there actually is peace, joy, and rest in that place. This is what David Fredrickson and Loren Rosser discuss in this episode of Untangled.

Distracted by a Cause

protestThere is so much injustice, mudslinging, political corruption, and religious obligation in the world today that we often find ourselves driven by anger, arrogance, or self-righteousness to take up a cause. Though some of these causes may appear to be good, many times they are merely distractions to get us to spend our time, energy, and emotions on something other than abiding in God’s love and loving others. It is so easy to fall into the trap of placing our identities in something other than Christ. This is what David and Loren discuss in this podcast.

Beautiful Crackpots

crackpotWe are usually taught by this world to keep up an image of strength even when we are weak. This is how many are trained to minister to others. But interestingly, Paul spoke of glorying in his weaknesses.  These things are often skimmed over as we read the Bible as if they’re merely nice little poetic sayings or Paul being modest.  Yet, the truth is Father truly is glorified in our weaknesses because He loves us right in the middle of them. It is often in our weaknesses that others are touched because there is less of us and more of Him.  When we don’t live in denial of our struggles we are less prone to become pharisees and are better able to genuinely connect with others.

Love and Judgement

Love and Judgement

In and out. Night and Day. Love and Judgement. Did you know that love and judgement for us humans are polar opposites? We weren’t created to judge, that place is reserved for God alone. But thanks to partaking of the fruit from the of Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil we thrust ourselves into a position for which we weren’t created. We were create to abide in the love of our Father not to be experts on good and evil. The root of that knowledge is actually the desire to live independent of God. We cannot abide in love and judge others at the same time. We either eat of the Tree of Life or The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This is what Loren Rosser and David Fredrickson discuss in this podcast.

The Topic of Love

The Topic of Love

(replay)

Do Christians hate homosexuals? Does being anti-gay equal hate?  This is one of the current battles in the culture wars being waged.  Could it be that Christians turning love into a mere topic of discussion, actually causes them to miss out on the most powerful influences on our culture?

Sin Management

Sin Management

Sin_ManagementDo we follow a Gospel of Sin Management? Has the Christian religion become more about controlling good and evil than living in the righteousness of Christ? We share some examples of how things may appear good, but still deny Christ, and contrast them to situations that may appear bad but demonstrate Father’s love.

Daily Resurrection

Daily Resurrection

Daily ResurrectionOnce a year the institutional church celebrates Easter, successfully turning a life filled reality into a lifeless ritual. They always make the point about celebrating Easter every day, but something’s missing. How does one experience  resurrection daily?

Under His Influence

Under His Influence

replay

Under His InfluenceDo you ever look around and wonder how the Kingdom of God is influencing our culture? From the traditional church perspective, influencing culture means special programs or activities that try to make a direct impact, but how do believers outside the traditional church influence their culture?  How does God influence others through us?

Creativity

Creativity

Creativity_Family Room MediaHas religion stifled creativity? Do people quit ‘the Arts’ under pressure from their religious peers? In this discussion we want to affirm the notion that believers should be free to express their creativity without looking over their shoulder and wondering if it’s approved by some church committee.
