My interview with Dr. A. Philip Brown II centers around how we should define and understand biblical inspiration, how the New Testament both modifies and builds on Old Testament teaching, and whether unhitching the Old Testament makes it easier to defend the faith. Dr. A. Phillip Brown is the Graduate Program director and teacher of New Testament G…
 
Some time back I had started a Patreon and part of the benefits that subscribers got was a Patreon-exclusive podcast. That Patreon has been closed for awhile now but there was some really cool content left over that only a few people got to hear. Here is a collection of film analyses I did organized around the theme “Monsters & Madmen,” including d…
 
Episodes will be out intermittently for the coming weeks and months (I'm still aiming for bi-weekly). That was all I was trying to say and ended up talking about the impact deconversion had on my sense of purpose and fulfillment in life, LOL. If all you need to know is to check your podcast app every once in a while, then it's all good and I'll tal…
 
Today is a very special episode about an ex-Muslim's deconversion to atheism, while living in Iran. His story is so important to share! He grew up in Iran in a Shia Muslim family. He was a devout Muslim until he got curious about Salman Rushdie's book, The Satanic Verses. His curiosity leads him to banned anti-islam websites. He reads articles and …
 
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Ruth Ryder about the N.T. Wright book The Day the Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus’s Crucifixion, highlighting its theme of rejecting the violence of the world for Christ’s new way of doing things and finding some commonalities in how libertarians approach power and coercion. Ruth is …
 
Jordan grew up going to church every Sunday with his family. He went to Bible studies and lived a typical Christian life. When he was junior high age, his family stopped attending church regularly. As Jordan grew older, he struggled balancing his church friendships along with his non-church friendships. He didn't want to live a double life. His fai…
 
Gidday Listeners! My first guest from Australian shares his fascinating journey out of Christianity. He was raised in a typical Methodist Christian home in a small Township in Australia. His dad was a brickmaker and his mother a homemaker. He was raised going to Sunday school. His dad attended prayer groups during the week and his mom went to women…

Matt was born in Wichita, Kansas and lived there until about age 7. He was raised non-denominational/charismatic mostly in the Assemblies of God churches and had full on believed by age 5. He had great parents and never had too many issues in the church. However, he always had a great fear of hell even as a Christian. He was in and out of church mo…
 
URGENT: If you live in Wisconsin please contact your state representative to express support for the Clergy Mandatory Reporter Act & the Child Victims Act. These bills are being considered right now. If your representative is Republican, it's even more important. Republican support is low for these bills, but is critical. Anything you can do is ver…
 
Adam Graham was my guest to discuss the 2010 Christopher Nolan film Inception, a movie about a mission to implant an idea in the brain of a leader of industry by infiltrating his dreams. Our discussion led us to think about how a simple idea can spread, whether reality is objective or subjective, and how guilt can begin to feel larger than life. Ad…
 
What an amazing story! Rebecca grew up in a cult-like Christian church called the World Wide Church of God. Her particular congregation was quite small and at one point only consisted of around 20 people. They celebrated Jewish holy days, but adopted their own meaning. They kept a version of Kosher as well. They had very peculiar beliefs about beco…

You have to hear this story! He's always wanted to help people. When he became a strong Christian, it was saving people from the lake of fire. If Hell was real, Wiley was compelled to do everything in his power to save people from it. He would stand outside ATMs on busy Friday nights preaching to people. He was attracted to an aggressive form of Ch…
 
Amanda is realistic about life's difficulties, but also very hopeful. She wears her heart on her sleeve and hopes her story will help others going through similar challenges. I loved her wise words about living with mental illness and how, although better off today, she still has ups and downs. She's a kindhearted person with a great sense of humor…
 
I don't think I've met anyone who was as committed a Christian at such a young age as Jeremy. He understood his faith so well as a 7 year old that his friends at daycare wanted him to debate an adult atheist! At home he was telling his father he wanted to preach. By 10 years of age he was giving altar calls. This was a child who loved the Bible and…
 
In Exodus 34:5-8, God revealed His character to Moses in words which would play a central role in directing Jewish discourse about the divine being for millennia to come. This portrayal of God is one of many ideas and themes which unify the two Testaments. Audio download: http://cantus-firmus.com/Audio/20190705-UTOTEp2-Exodus34.mp3 Music: “The Itis…
 
Dave was recently diagnosed with ALS and has been given 2 to 5 years to live. He has been going around the country and on podcasts speaking about his experience. Today Dave joins me to share what his life focus has been since the diagnosis. How Christian friends and secular friends respond to Dave's news has been very different. I found this really…
 
What a great conversation! Dana brings such wonderful insight into her life experiences. It was a pleasure hearing her fascinating story. We discuss some difficult, but important topics today. Child abuse, mental illness, substance abuse, abusive relationships and the fixation on sex by male church authorities. Dana was raised in a evangelical bapt…
 
I was so impressed with Misty's kindness, strength and perspective. At 4 years old Misty gets a virus, which leads to a social anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism. This prevents Misty from being able to speak. She is only able to speak with her parents and brother, but not her older sisters. Misty copes with this through most of childhood. She…
 
The first episode in a new podcast series, my interview with Dr. Michael Heiser covers the trend of “unhitching” the Old Testament from our Christian faith. Dr. Heiser argues for the incoherence of a Christianity without the Old Testament and gives his own view of the rationale for the violence described in the Old Testament regarding the Canaanite…
 
A truly touching and inspiring story. Christianity was everything for Timoree. It helped her with sobriety, mental illness and was a source of comfort. You can imagine that when faith begins to fracture, how unsettling and scary it was for her. The most important things in her life were at stake. Somehow, she still found the courage to face this ch…
 
Janice was an all-or-nothing kind of Christian. Her life takes a turn toward fundamentalism when her husband is going to school to be a pastor. She chooses to show her submission to her husband by wearing a head covering and not wearing jewelry or make-up. She went through some tremendously difficult experiences: Her daughter's illness, difficultie…
 
“A boy stands on a station platform as a train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? Infinite possibilities arise from this decision. As long as he doesn’t choose, anything is possible.” This was the promotional tagline for the 2009 film Mr. Nobody, a film about choice, chance, and the anxiety about whether you ma…

Latifah is a musical artist, writer, producer, and engineer involved in such projects as Moda Spira and Page CXVI. You can learn more about her work at www.latifahalattas.…
 
What a Journey! Joy was 3 when separated from her siblings and family of origin. It happened without warning. Her foster family were fundamentalist Christians in Idaho. She grew up in the church and had mostly a positive experience. She got lots of attention and love in church. As a child her feet get run over by a lawnmower. She believes God can h…
 
Today I finally had the privilege to meet Cass Midgley! His podcast (Everyone's Agnostic) was the first podcast I found that shared deconversion stories. This has been so encouraging to me through the years and played a big role in helping me process my deconversion. He's an open book and a straight shooter. The longer you listen to Cass, the more …
