Most Christians have New Age beliefs and many spiritual people cite scripture in support of their beliefs. The author of “The Power of Positive Thinking,” Norman Vincent Peale” relied on scripture to support his philosophy. The Prosperity Gospel of preachers like Joel Osteen is the Christian form of positive thinking. While most Americans hold ...…

The Church is divided. The traditional line of division within western Christianity between Protestant and Catholic has receded. The Church is now divided between liberals and conservatives and between North and South. The recent schism in the Methodist Church over gay rights illustrates the point. At its general conference in St. Louis this ye ...…
 
This is a recording of a discussion between myself and New Age podcast host Lynne Mystic Healer and her co-host Andy Miller on her show Spiritual Emergency Training.

Individual ideologies and theologies give us incomplete pictures of reality. The world is too complex. No Ideology or theology can explain everything. Every ideology and every theology overlooks or misses something. There is always something that resists symbolization. This is the view of Slovenian philosopher Slovoj Zizek who I have accessed p ...…
 
In this Easter program, we read the story of Peter and Cornelius in Acts Chapter 10. Here we find Peter saying that those who act justly are acceptable to God. So we talk about the meaning and usage of the words salvation, believing, sin, and forgiveness as used in the Bible. Salvation, for example, means freedom from oppression and release fro ...…
 
Recent polling has shown that most Americans have New Age beliefs, including many of those who attend church on Sunday and who consider themselves to be Christians. What do you feel about the New Age movement? How about the “prosperity gospel" or the supernatural? How should the Church respond to the rise of New Age beliefs in the Church and in ...…
 
Have you ever had an experience of God or of the supernatural? I have. Paul based much of his faith upon his experiences of Christ. For Paul, the risen Christ is the Good News! Paul said that if Christ has not been raised, then our faith is in vain. We will read 1 Corinthians 15:1 to 11 and go over the context and issues raised by the text. The ...…
 
On this show, Professor David Westfall and I discuss what it means to believe? What does Paul mean when he says that "if we confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved?" Is it universal or exclusive? What does the word "salvation" mean as used in the Bible? How is our f ...…

In this context, Dr. Pierce asks us to consider how the Church should respond to Israel’ ...…
 
Today we discuss the rejection of Jesus at Nazareth. The story seems to turn on a dime. One minute they are gracious, the next they want to throw him off a cliff. What happened? What did Jesus mean when he said "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing?" What did he mean by saying that prophets are never accepted in their hometow ...…
 
The story of Jesus being thrown out of the synagogue might remind some of us about our own experiences at church. Many people have been hurt at Church, and some of us may have stories to tell. We will also talk about the call to social justice advocacy and activism. Why should Christians be involved in social justice advocacy? If Jesus came to ...…

On today's show we talk about spiritual gifts and the supernatural. It's important to take the spiritual gifts literally so they can be activated for the common good.

In this edited edition of the show, we read from the Gospel of Luke and ask why Zechariah was struck mute, and why Mary raced off to see Elizabeth, the wife of the priest. The law is an issue; Mary could be accused of adultery. The story actually posits a number of reversals as Mary's song reveals: God feeds the hungry and sends the rich away e ...…
 
On this show, we will read Luke 3:7-18 where John the Baptist proclaimed the good news to the people. Each of the Gospels presents this scene with John the Baptist differently. In Luke, John is preaching to the crowds who were "filled with expectation." They've come to be baptized when he calls them "a brood of vipers." In Matthew, John is Bapt ...…
 
In today's show, we read Luke 21:25-36 and discuss the climate crisis and what we can do about it. This is not a prediction of the end time, because the end time is simply the time we see the signs and take action. We reinterpret "the end time." The end time is now, but not in the sense of the end of the world. Instead, it is a new beginning. L ...…
 
Much of modern spirituality focuses on personal happiness and well being, but the gospel is not about that. It is the record of a man executed by the Roman Empire for the crime of sedition, a political charge. At the heart of the Gospel is the call to give one's life for the welfare of others. We often view the crucifixion in the light of God's ...…
 
Where are we in the Gospels? Are we the rich? The poor? The disciples? The crowds? Are we like the Pharisees in some ways? Today we will read the story of the Widow’s Mite from the Gospel of Mark 12:38-44. In that story Jesus observes a poor widow putting two worthless coins into the public treasury, and then he says that she had given more tha ...…
 
This show features our own Bert Newton as he teaches his class on "Parody and Subversion in Matthew's Gospel." Jesus tells the disciples that "no sign will be given except the sign of Jonah."
