EP96 - Christianity - Redefining the Church by Listening to God, Eric Jackson


Eric Jackson has been a pastor for more than ten years, but has now begun a journey of redefining his approach to faith – he calls it a feral christianity, something that he defines as an uncompromising, loving, listening church. It may not be what broader civilization wants it to be, but it’s what makes sense to do.


After getting some definitions out of the way, Michael asks about erosions of character, manipulations of the zeitgeist and other flaws he sees among practicing christians. Eric explains how he feels Christians should be acting right now, how faith should be informing anyone’s political actions, and how he pulls down fences non-believers might have.


They also ponder the nature of evil, how to embody Christ given current social upheavals, and the value of reading parables.
