Asking and sometimes answering tough questions about faith, religion and culture.

Put Some Respeck on Haiti and Africa

January 20th, 2018

There was a lot of discussion around disparaging comments about Haiti, African countries, and El Salvador. The language isn't coded anymore.  Do we prefer this level of honesty or the traditional coded versions? This week, we're talking dog whistles, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Climate Theory, and how the view of darkskin as undesirable evolved. We tie all of this together in one extra large episode.

Testimony Goals

January 4th, 2018

We're back from the holiday break with new goals. But first, we have to deal with A Very Special Testimony that generated a lot of discussion. It is an opportunity to have some uncut conversation about how we view sex, respectability, and ultimately, the people we're called to love.

The Purpose of Prayer

December 16th, 2017

Amera Bee officially joins the Faith Uncut podcast this week as a regular host! Just in time for us to discuss the Purpose of Prayer. We dig into the Harvard Prayer Study, the effectiveness of prayer, prayer weirdos, God's omniscience, meditation and Neil Degrasse Tyson. It is a lot but all of it helps us understand prayer's purpose a little better. We hope it does the same for you.

Was Jesus a Social Justice Warrior?

This week JW is back to answer the question of if Jesus of Nazareth was a social justice warrior? We're looking at the types of things he said and did. If Christians are his followers and he was, what does that mean for us?

In The Beginning…

November 19th, 2017

So much of the Christian faith hinges on what happened in the beginning. This week, we discuss whether there are two separate creation stories in Genesis, the first marriage, if the description of creation literal or figurative, and all of these questions are pivotal to your faith.
