In this episode we discuss the power of the human mind, how our bio-psycho-social-spiritual environment play a part in the development of our actions towards others, and how we understand concepts of Heaven and Hell. We also talk about if Heaven and Hell are real places, the theological understanding of the Heaven and Hell doctrine and its history, and how these concepts play a role in our daily life.
Perfection: Mistakes Included, begins with a question. Did the historical person, Jesus ben Joseph of Nazareth actually exist and if so, What kind of evidence is there and how reliable is it? Can we look for the person of Jesus without the trappings of divinity? You may be wondering about the title of this conversation if we are looking for a historical person. How does Perfection include mistakes? Is it actually perfect if there are mistakes? Who's perfection are we talking about? For those who are struggling with their faith or in the process of deconstructing the toxic religious systems they grew up with, is there a way to understand Easter without the need for death and atonement? These are all questions we look at in this conversation. Listen and find out if it's possible for mistakes to be included the idea of "Perfection".

Today we are talking about aspects of creation. We will look at different creation stories to learn how the Ancient Hebrews developed their spiritual and cultural identity. We will also ask and try to answer some age old questions like, why are we here? Why would God create? What is God exactly? We may not be able to answer all of those questions, but at least we will be one step closer to possibly understanding ourselves.
This conversation examines the stories of biblical women in a more positive light; deconstructing what we think we know and learning about their origins, who they were, and how they changed the course of history.

So Join me for our first conversation together, MythConceptions. Enjoy and please remember to follow, leave comments, and come back.
Edit Note: I do mention the person Lot in one of my tangents. I misspoke, I should have said Abraham. Abraham is Lot's uncle and who the angels approach. It is Lot's house where the angels stay. Same story, I just mixed the names around. I apologize.
Next week are talking about Biblical HERstory.
I'm Inviting you to join me in an honest discussion about how and why people of faith believe what they do. We will discuss a variety of topics and cover spans of history. We will ask questions, and in true theological fashion, we will leave with more questions than we have answers for. We won't shy away from any topic concerning faith, religion, and the quest to discover true understanding. I will cover topics and present their concepts in a way that you may not have heard or thought of before and from a perspective that you probably wouldn't expect. If you would like to learn more about how we will do this, have a listen to the trailer, subscribe or follow, and stay tuned for our weekly conversations.
