If you spend much time on social media or have seen much from Franklin Graham lately, you'd know that he's sorta gone rogue on Facebook. Some of his comments have sparked outrage among religious leaders, and others have left us scratching our heads and asking, "what the heck is up with Franklin Graham?"
With the recent elections in Israel and talk of an arms deal with Iran, folks have been talking once again about the Israeli and Palestinian conflict. Many of us grow up with a blindly pro-Israel worldview given to us in fundamentalism where Israel is seen as the oppressed, and the Palestinians are seen as the oppressor... but is that true? To explore this issue, BLC sits down with an American missionary in Palestine to tell us about her 11 years living among the Palestinians and living under a military occupation.
In EP22, BLC and MPT sit down to discuss the exasperating issue of religious freedom laws and our refusal to bake those wedding cakes.
In this long overdue episode of That God Show, BLC sits down with friend and author Christian Piatt to wrestle with the question: "What does following Jesus look like?"

Once again, BLC and MPT come to you live from Armenia. Coming off some moving experiences witnessing the work being done by World Vision in this part of the world, join us in an exploration of what it means to discover our place in God's grand story of reconciliation.
This is a very special episode of That God Show, as for the first time BLC and MPT record the show while sitting in the same room! Join us for a discussion of why we're in Armenia with World Vision, things we're experiencing in the field, and discover the genocide of 1.5 million people that doesn't get discussed often.
Does progressive Christianity suffer from its own form of fundamentalism? In this week's episode, BLC and MPT sit down to talk about the "carryover" behaviors that tend to follow us out of fundamentalism-- traits that tend to rear their ugly head in whatever new thing we move into. However, if we can develop self awareness around these carryovers, there's hope to move on and return to the mission of building something beautiful.
Most of us grew up believing that those who reject God will spend eternity in a literal place called hell, where they are consciously tortured day and night, for ever. But is that what the Bible actually teaches? Not quite-- in fact, the Bible doesn't teach hell as we were taught it at all. In this episode, BLC sits down with Kurt Willems to talk about hell, and the theology of "conditionalism." If you've ever questioned hell, but didn't want let go of something that was in the Bible, this episode is for you-- you'll walk away with your Bible intact, and a totally different view of hell.
That God Show is back from the holiday break! In Episode 16, BLC and MPT discuss President Obama's State of the Union address and all things regarding Christian involvement in politics.

Corey and Matthew Paul Turner sit down in this special Christmas episode to help you develop a game-plan to get through those challenge family visits.
