“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” These words of Jesus on the cross have led many to the conclusion that God left Jesus while he was dying on the cross. That because Jesus had become sin for us, the Father turned away from him because he can’t look on sin. But is that what was happening? Let’s talk about it.
Welcome to episode 33 of The UnSunday Show. Why are there so many burdensome rules in organized Christian religion when Jesus promised rest and relief from those same heavy burdens? When we read the Bible as though all of it applies to us, the lines blur between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, resulting in a fatal mixology of confusion and harm.
This fatal mixology is the springboard of our conversation in this episode. Push Play and join the discussion.
The wisdom of man and the wisdom of God, putting our confidence in people, organizations, and institutions instead of in God, and remembering what is already ours in Jesus, apart from religion or knowledge are a few of the topics Mike and Mac tackle in this episode. Along the way, you’ll gain some valuable insight on coconut cake and Jesus’ favorite color. Push Play and listen in.

Welcome to episode 16 of The UnSunday Show! I’m taking a short break in this episode from my interaction with Jon Zen’s book because I’m recovering from pneumonia and I don’t have much of a voice right now. So instead, I’m bringing over one last episode from my old Ekklesia Podcast and I’m calling it Bringing Moses To Church, because I think that’s what we do and in so doing, we cause a lot of confusion about how God views us, where we stand with God in any given moment, and how we view God.
In this episode I touch on some foundational topics like:
Christ’s ekklesia (or church) never existed historically until Acts 2.
Why does God look so different in the Old Testament?
The Old Covenant pointed to the New Covenant.
The Old and New Covenants cannot be mixed. They are incompatible with one another. The New Covenant has made the Old Covenant obsolete. Stop bringing Moses to church!
The Old Covenant was temporary and historically time-bound.
The Old Covenant produced a physical people where only some within it knew the Lord. The New Covenant produces a spiritual people where everyone in it knows the Lord. To be in Christ is to be in the New Covenant.
