054 | Religion’s Priority of the Pulpit – Part 2

Welcome to episode 54 of the UnSunday Show. Let’s continue talking about pulpits and institutional religion’s obsession with the pulpit and how it’s been elevated to such a place of prominence in institutional Christianity. Charles Spurgeon said this concerning pulpits:

“The moment the church of God shall despise the pulpit, God will despise her.”

This quote is one example of several that I share in this episode to show how the system of religion has elevated the pulpit, and the person behind it to a harmful status at the expense of a healthy functioning of spiritual gifts by every member of the body of Christ. In the process we’re left with a crippling view of the body of Christ.

Let’s talk…

053 | Religion’s Priority of the Pulpit – Part 1

Welcome to episode 53 of The UnSunday Show. This is part one of two on the subject of pulpits and institutional religion’s requirement of keeping the pulpit at the center of its Sunday events. I have a lot to say about this but my laptop battery ran down as I was recording this and I wasn’t near my charger, so I stopped where I was, making this part one of two. Part Two will drop next week.

Episode 31: Power Posturing

Welcome to episode 31 of The UnSunday Show. Mike received an invitation in the mail to spend a weekend listening to someone do expository preaching. Needless to say, this set off a few triggers in light of Mike’s background. Add to that the fact that the picture on the invitation reminded both Mike & Mac of someone power posturing over others in the church. Mike & Mac talk about it in this episode. of The UnSunday Show. Grab your favorite beverage and listen in.

005 – Pastors and Pulpits

“Wherever the pulpit is going, that’s where the church is going.”

Welcome to episode 5 of the UnSunday Show. The statement above appeared in my Twitter feed not long ago. Unfortunately, it’s true. In our modern-day top-down hierarchal church structures, one man or one woman is at the helm, driving the entire institution. Far from being an accomplishment to be celebrated, this structure is a symptom of something gone terribly wrong in the history of the church. The centrality of the pulpit and the person behind it has crippled and rendered lame, the functioning of the one anothers within the body of Christ. The priesthood of every believer has been reduced to a priesthood of a select few. Let’s talk about it.

– Enjoy!
