Were church leaders  reckless,  using little wisdom when standing up for and “teaching truth?”  Was it an accident so many of us were messed up in the process?   Co-hosts Ellen Mauro, Hayne Griffen, and Joey Svendsen mourn the lack of love and wisdom seen in church's approach to sexuality and youth,  it's reluctancy to even love those with other views, and it's impulse to beat the mess out of some one who is not "one of us" any more.  

My journey is full of changes in how I see God, faith, the Church and spirituality in general.  I have also found church family amongst people who would be labeled "evangelical" by most.  

That’s why as I mourn the hypocrisy in the "capital C church," I also cannot help but to  speak on behalf of people who i have often seen live with good intent, bringing forth a lot of goodness and hope into the world.  But it’s tiring to see the church act more like Judas than Jesus; and even more bothersome?  We’re being desensitized as we watch the church claim "Jesus as Lord," without following in His footsteps of love.  This is a false claim and is ruining the credibility of gospel and thus the church.  -- JoeyRobbie Madison “The Way that You Love”single / Spotify / Apple Music
