The John 14:6 Challenge Edition!!! [TNT 39]

Over 50 different HBC Deacons have answered the call.  They responded to the John 14:6 Challenge & now Bo and I get to Nerd Out with some of your calls!  It was a ton of fun to interact with you all and we will be looking forward to more interactive fun in the near future.

The release of Brian McLaren’s new book Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?: Christian Identity in a Multi-Faith World  and our subsequent live event with him at Wild Goose West (audio here) got the ball rolling.  Then when Brian’s new publisher Jericho Books who hooked us up with some promotional copies we decided to open the mic up to y’all.

Bo has been blogging as we received the calls.  First he proposed an alternative reading to John 14:6 & now he is trying to get rid of Salvation altogether (sarcasm!).

At the conclusion of the podcast Bo started talking Christological smack so soon and very soon I will be leading Bo high up the Christological mountain where the divine Logos & Sophia make sweet eternal symmetry.

Finally got around to listening to this podcast this morning ... for some time now, I've approached this passage as an "indicative," a statement of fact, rather than an imperative to do anything. I live in LA and sometimes drive to Pasadena along the 110. No one goes to Pasadena along the 110 except they pass through the tunnels east of China Town. Jesus makes it clear to the disciples that he provides a way through ... and I've expanded this to include all travelers ... Jesus has provided a way utterly inclusive ... anyone who seeks to go this way - or perhaps everyone going this way, whatever their particular creed might be, passes through what Jesus has done universally, akin to creation - it's there, a gift, for all the world. It's a statement of fact - "I am the way, the truth and the life, and if you should pass this way, you pass through what I've made. You may know it, rather dimly, or, with some clarity, but it's not you, it's me."

Hey Tripp, so I sent my wife's name and address to the "podcast at homebrewedchristianity dot com " email address. Wondering if that's the right email address to use. Cheers.

Hi guys. My friend Jeff, here in West Cobb, led me to listening to you podcast. I shared my thoughts with him and he thought I should share with you. I'm a 52 year old, white woman and have trouble fitting in with my thoughts out here in the 'burbs. I love the question and discussion you have approached. This is my first time listening but I think I would probably like more of what you have to say. Here's my issue... first, it took you way too long to get to the point. There was a lot of seemingly pointless talk and banter before really getting into the true topic. I wish the entire time had been spent on important discussion. By the time you got to it and played what others had recorded, I loved hearing what everyone had to say. I almost stopped listening before you got there though. My other comment is that there were no women. I don't get the idea that it was intentional on your part, but it was quite obvious to me. That's all for now...

This podcast seriously had heart. Loved Tripp's personal story about his spiritual director. I've only been listening since the summer, but I think this was the first time I really connected on an emotional level, fwiw.

FYI, your link to Theology Nerd isn't working. It's just pointing to the image instead of the iTunes feed. :)

Just wondering, since you mentioned that every Christian should believe atleast something about it; How would a process person speak about predestination and hell ?

 

Thanks, great podcast as always

Imagine my surprise as the podcast ends. And yes, my wife is most definitely a rock star.

Many thanks for the mention of the Christian Humanist Podcast, guys. It should be no surprise that I enjoy your shows a great deal and fire up the TNT whenever it goes live.

 

The amusing thing about my "southern accent" is that I grew up in central Indiana and still think of myself as a Hoosier in exile here in Georgia.  That said, I do recognize that I have chameleonic vowel sounds and, as Michial Farmer says, sound in some ways more southern than the two CHP hosts who grew up in Georgia and Alabama.  (Farmer also said, when we were grad students reading Heidegger together, that I sound like a foul-mouthed Southern Baptist preacher, but that's another story.)

 

I'll send Tripp a mailing address in a bit, and I'll be sure to mention this episode when I write my review of the book for www.christianhumanist.org.
