episode 81: I follow a Neurodiverse, Autistic, black, and abused Jesus!

"Was Jesus Less Than Able-Bodied?

As far as I can tell, the artistic choice to depict Matthew as autistic has been widely embraced. Jesus came for the sick and outcast, so it’s not hard to imagine him calling someone with a disability to follow him.

But let me ask a somewhat provocative question: What if The Chosen had taken the artistic liberty to present Jesus as neuroatypical or less than able-bodied?

Surely, there’d be pandemonium, along with accusations of heresy...

episode 82: I am Solo Poly by my permanent choice

"People can be solo poly by choice or circumstance. That is, some people prefer solo polyamory and are unwilling to strongly merge their identity or life infrastructure with their partners. Others simply happen to be effectively solo: they may desire (or be open to) primary-style relationships in the future, but they just don’t happen to have one at the moment.

Solo polyamory can be an expression of personal values...

episode 84: Some Reasons Why Humanists Reject The Bible

"Examples of Old Testament Contradictions

The contradictions start in the opening chapters of the Bible, where inconsistent creation stories are told. Genesis chapter 1 says the first man and woman were made at the same time, and after the animals. But Genesis chapter 2 gives a different order of creation: man, then the animals, and then woman...

episode 86: Christlikeness- A Character Study (You don't have to give up being secular to be Christlike, you don't have to give up faith to be Christlike either)

"Jesus spread good cheer everywhere he went. He was full of grace and truth. His associates never ceased to wonder at the gracious words that proceeded out of his mouth. You can cultivate gracefulness, but graciousness is the aroma of friendliness which emanates from a love-saturated soul.

Goodness always compels respect, but when it is devoid of grace, it often repels affection. Goodness is universally attractive only when it is gracious...

episode 87: The secular community beliefs

"Our Beliefs

After thousands of years of human history, religion has failed at solving any of the major problems humanity has faced over the centuries, and has little to offer for the series of serious problems we face today:

  • More than half the world's population lacks access to essential healthcare services.
  • More than a billion people:
    • Don't have enough to eat on a daily basis...

"1. Get Comfortable with Your Desires

Before you even start a conversation with your partner, you need to have a level of comfort with the desire you have.

episode 90: I Like Porn: Am I Normal?

"A college student, a mother of two, and a city councilwoman walk into a room. They have one thing in common: These three women all enjoy watching porn!

Even if they don’t talk about it with their friends (or even their partners!) many people of all genders watch porn. No matter why or how you watch it, your interest in porn is totally normal and a lot of people enjoy it...

episode 91: 6 Affirmations for People Ashamed of Their Kink

"1. There’s Nothing Wrong with You

Or phrased another way, “It’s not you. It’s society.”

When something is a taboo, that doesn’t make it inherently wrong or bad on its own.

In a culture that demonizes and moralizes a/sexuality as a whole – especially a/sexuality that exists outside of monogamous, vanilla partnerships– practically everyone is a “deviant” in some shape or form.

But that’s society’s baggage, not yours...

episode 92: Universalism Was Unchallenged by the Early Church

"Reflection on God's Nature Leads to Universalism

Next, the nature of God, as described in the Christian scriptures, leads me to believe in Universalism. I believe that God is Love. Indeed, the Christian Bible also states that explicitly (1 John 4:8). If God is Love, then surely he wants the best for every person. Many scriptures support this. 1 Timothy 2:4 says, "God … wants all people to be saved"...
