I Stopped Believing In God After Pastoring A Megachurch Reaction https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1125-i-stopped-believing-in-god-after-pastoring-a-megachurch-reaction https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1125-i-stopped-believing-in-god-after-pastoring-a-megachurch-reaction I Stopped Believing In God After Pastoring A Megachurch Reaction

Check out my reaction to the viral Buzzfeed video, "I Stopped Believing In God After Pastoring A Megachurch".

There have been a lot of believing in God reaction videos but I share something VERY MUCH in common with the Gungor family. Watch to find out!

This Lisa Gungor interview provides insight into the Michael Gungor atheist dilemma and their experience as a megachurch Pastor.

With the release of her new book, "The Most Beautiful Thing I've Seen" Grammy nominated artist Lisa Gungor goes deep on family, church, and being pushed out of the world she knew so well.

I truly feel sorry for this family as it seems as though they have dealt with a great deal of persecution, heartbreak and depression.
How can we learn from this to be more loving Christians?

The BuzzfeedVideo, I Stopped Believing In God After Pastoring A Megachurch, is a very interesting video detailing how a Christian became atheist. What are your thoughts?

Comment below!

I truly hope you enjoy my, "i stopped believing in god after pastoring a megachurch reaction" and thank you, so much, for stopping by.

THESE are the kinds of families, as Christians, that we should be loving on.

God Bless and MadLuv!

Progressive Evangelicals Criticism of Abortion Only Voters https://jackhakimian.com/society/item/1120-progressive-evangelicals-criticism-of-abortion-only-voters https://jackhakimian.com/society/item/1120-progressive-evangelicals-criticism-of-abortion-only-voters Progressive Evangelicals Criticism of Abortion Only Voters
Why it is hard to take certain social progressive Evangelical leaders seriously when they say "Abortion is not the only issue we should be fighting for and be fixated about as Christians. What about poverty, trafficking, police brutality, etc."?
 
I agree with progressives Yahweh is concerned about everything they mention including personal, familial and sexual vices like lust, greed, pride, drunkenness, homosexuality, adultery, divorce, lying, etc.
 
But, when they make the above argument, it is usually in contrast to the Republican Party and candidates like Donald Trump that conservative right-wing abortion hating Evangelicals vote for.
 
They do this to encourage support for even worse anti-Christian moral candidates like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who were openly hostile in their platforms viewpoints and policies to almost every virtue propagated in Scripture. They consider many of those universal Biblical principles as being too primitive for modern society.
 
Candidates with political/economic philosophies that for the last 55-60 years have exasperated the plight of the poor working class and Black/Brown inner-cities.
 
For example, Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile wrote for The Gospel Coalition,
 
“the folks who can only talk about abortion and can’t factor anything else into their decisions are guilty of another form of idolatry. Some make a tremendously important moral issue a ‘god’ of sorts. Further, some make their conscience an idol by obeying their conscience instead of the whole counsel of God.”
 
If they were serious about the systemic economic/social change, they would be encouraging Evangelicals to become politically independent and to consider 3rd party candidates, or parties that better reflect their progressive Evangelical social views well as their hatred of abortion as many of them passively espouse.
 
They would be honest that the democratic party platform and not the average democrat voter have been hostile to most Christian virtues presented through public policy (i.e., homeschooling, sexual control, school voucher choice, anti-divorce laws, parental disciplinary rights, creationism, pre-born rights, sustainable living wage skilled labor, etc.)
 
Many of them don't propagate the third way or become honest in their assessment of the democratic hostility towards Biblical worldview.
They become what they hate in conservative Evangelicals who endorse Republicans/Trump types without any criticism of their sins.
 
True prophets are independent of all human institutions and cultures and usually find fault in all things constructed by man. Why? Man is sinful.
 
If they cannot do this, it is because they are not true prophets who scrutinize culture and human institutions in light of God's Word but rather are committed to internal or cultural biases themselves.
 
How serious can we take this growing movement of progressive social dissent within evangelical circles?
Take it seriously because it has the power of the world's philosophy behind it and its venom has already poisoned the well of American Evangelicalism.
 
Evangelicals need to be critical of all political parties, but also honest about what groups are more anti-Christian or friendly to their ambitions.
 
That takes real courage, discernment, and transcendence from a person's own culture and economic allegiances.
 
Follow Christ and make decisions with His discernment! Maybe you have been wrong in your criticism of Pro-Life Evangelicals the way people misjudged the Radical Republicans (White Abolitionists Evangelicals) who tolerated the racism of the Northern Moderate Republicans to vote in a president like Lincoln and put pressure on him to fight a civil war that would emancipate African American slaves.

Why Democratic Socialist don't hold to a Christian worldview of blessings? https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1117-why-democratic-socialist-don-t-hold-to-a-christian-worldview-of-blessings https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1117-why-democratic-socialist-don-t-hold-to-a-christian-worldview-of-blessings Why Democratic Socialist don't hold to a Christian worldview of blessings?

LISTEN TO PODCAST BELOW:

{sermonspeaker 10}

Jesus said the road to eternal life is narrow, but the path to destruction is wide (Matthew 7:13).

Based on such statements from Jesus it is evident that few people in Churches/Communities care about God's blessings enough to be obedient in all aspects of their lives (i.e., Marriage, Purity, Work Ethic, Saving, Parenting, Prayer, etc.). The road to blessings is narrow.

I used to believe everyone should be blessed in the same way by God, Parents, Government, and Society.

I held an unbiblical definition and naive understanding of love and social responsibility.

I no longer believe that disobedient/lazy/sinfully stubborn people should be blessed at the expense of the righteous/humble person as the government takes control of charitable causes and private enterprise without individual consent and authority by citizens who are closer to community needs. Local leaders are more efficient in the distribution of services/products and should be able to utilize the fruit of their labor as they please.

Some people are so stubborn about living right that they don't deserve to "eat" at someones else's expense. The Bible says "if you don't work you shall not eat" (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

That hunger and pain should lead them to repentance, a hard work ethic, and personal development.

God disciplines people and cultures so they can share in His holiness (Hebrews 12:5-10).

Since God withholds blessings from people who are capable and not willing, we should do the same as Christians. Godliness is mimicking God through the power of the Spirit in us.

James the Apostle wrote:

"But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do" (James 1:25)

God speaks to communities and individuals that If you don't obey me, I will curse you and if you follow me I will bless you.

He rewards individual and group obedience. A healthy group is nothing more than individuals who decide to do the right thing together.

Deuteronomy 28:2-4 reads,

2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

Even children can escape the curses of their father's sins. No one is held hostage to generational curses, family behavior or parents sins in this world.

If Christians are not careful, their kingdom views can contradict their political opinions and lead to cognitive and social dissonance.

Ezekiel 18:14-19 reads,

14 “But suppose this son has a son who sees all the sins his father commits, and though he sees them, he does not do such things:

15 “He does not eat at the mountain shrines

or look to the idols of Israel.

He does not defile his neighbor’s wife.

16 He does not oppress anyone

or require a pledge for a loan.

He does not commit robbery

but gives his food to the hungry

and provides clothing for the naked.

17 He withholds his hand from mistreating the poor

and takes no interest or profit from them.

He keeps my laws and follows my decrees.

He will not die for his father’s sin; he will surely live. 18 But his father will die for his own sin, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother and did what was wrong among his people.

19 “Yet you ask, ‘Why does the son not share the guilt of his father?’ Since the son has done what is just and right and has been careful to keep all my decrees, he will surely live.

Stay away from Democratic Socialism. Look at China and you will see our future in America-A Government That Controls EVERYTHING and EVERYONE like SLAVES!

Asking for someone’s phone number in front of a flower shop will be more successful because the flowers prime us to think about romance. Small, subliminal cues change our willingness to be sold on a product, on ideas or even a date. Economics correspondent Paul Solman speaks with psychology professor Robert Cialdini about his book, “Pre-Suasion,” the crucial step before persuasion.

Lecrae — Joy Through Sacrifice https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1112-lecrae-a-joy-through-sacrifice https://jackhakimian.com/spiritual/item/1112-lecrae-a-joy-through-sacrifice Lecrae — Joy Through Sacrifice

We live in a culture that encourages us to bury failure and pain. It’s a social media society where escape into the latest, shiny thing along with a desperation for likes and followers is the norm. Pitfalls such as depression and trauma need to be avoided at all costs, even though we’ve all been there at one point or another. But what if the very things we run away from, the raw hurt and pain, could produce in our lives true purpose and identity?

This week at VOUS Church we had the special honor of hearing from the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist, Lecrae. He dove deep into the idea that joy and pain go hand-in-hand by giving a glimpse into his own story of hardship.

In Hebrews 12:2, we also see how Jesus was able to see past the sorrow of the cross, to joy at the right hand of the Father. Through Jesus’ example, we are invited to look at our own pain, hard as it may be, and find joy on the other side.

To find joy, we first need to identify the past hurts, mistakes or failures we've been stuffing away and struggling with internally. Then we can face the pain head-on, let go of striving and allow the experience to mold us into new creations.

God doesn’t call us to hide our wounds. Like Lecrae, there may be a point in our lives where we must face the music and deal with the darkness in our lives. But embracing the process, rather than running from it, is just the radical step needed to create lasting joy in our lives.

God can turn the bleakest moment into a story of triumph if we are willing to let him use it. Our scars can testify to healing only if we show them.
