Episode 53 is part three of a mini-series: I opened the podcast “for dialogue with folks that may be concerned/confused by Christianity, who may have been wounded by it, or who simply don’t know what to think about God right now.”
Luke’s church experience seemed normal to him; when he began meeting other Christians, he realized just how unhealthy his experiences had been. This — along with his personal exploration of Christianity — began to raise in him questions of the validity of Christianity and the God it speaks of.
Now identifying as an agnostic-atheist, Luke continues to process his understanding of life and spirituality; because of his desire for no one to have the negative experiences he did, he is creating spaces to ensure others who are questioning can do so in a way that they are seen, heard, and loved.
The question this raised for me: why did the church — uniquely designed for such a task — vacate that space?
If you have had negative experiences with churches or Christians, or are wrestling with questions around the validity of Christianity, we hope this episode is encouraging.
A special shoutout to Josh Mozug — who has been in two previous episodes — who shared my original post, which led to several episodes.
