More g(O)dd Questions: Avoiding Tithing & What Are We Doing? | Ep 48


In this week’s episode we decided to answer questions again. This time they aren’t audience questions. Instead, we’re answering questions that we routinely get from people about what we’re doing about this church thing. We talked about a ton of topics: tithing, leadership, accountability, and being angry at the church.

After we recorded (it ended up being 53 minutes long), we decided that maybe people wanted to skip right to a specific topic, so we separated them into separate videos. So, if you want to listen to the whole thing, do it. But, if you’re interested in a specific topic, you can go straight to that video and watch that one. Here’s the topics and links to the videos…

Here’s the Whole Episode

Individual Topic Clips

What Exactly are You Doing? | Ep 48a

This is exactly what it sounds like. What ARE we doing if we’re planning on doing “regular” church?

Are You Avoiding Tithing or Accountability? | Ep 48b

Mostly? Yes we are. Really we’re both probably giving more than we would if we were tithing to a church. And as far as accountability, we are both more accountable (not less) in the community we’ve placed ourselves in.

Did the Church Hurt You? | Ep 48c

Nope. And we’re not mad at the church either. We love the Church.

What About Leading in Church? |Ep 48d

Yeah, do it. We love leadership. Maybe just learn to follow Jesus, with other followers, first.

Should the Church Build Leaders? | Ep 40

Church Leaders

In this week’s episode, like a chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream cone, Bruce and Thomas are back and together in the same place. In the last couple weeks the podcast has seen their wives show up to review The Shack and an interview with James Roberson, 516 Project, about the upcoming 8 Days of Hope event in Lafayette, LA. In this episode we discuss church leaders, or more specifically, their infatuation with developing¬†and building leaders.

Leaders versus Disciples

When Jesus gave us the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) He instructed us to make disciples. Somehow the western church has turned that into a leadership development calling. What if we focused on making disciples instead and in doing so, we created disciple makers. By the very definition of “making disciples who make disciples”, we are making leaders. What if we focused on disciple making? What would change?
