Jesus For Sex Workers, Church People, and Me

Jesus For Sex Workers, Church People, and Me

The church is failing its mission. Rather than answering Jesus’s radical call to be salt and light, church people have chosen to go to war with their neighbors. Todd Austin shows how the ancient words of Scripture goad the righteous of today back toward the true way, and how those same words kick open a door to those the church has shut out. Season 1 focuses on the gospel of Matthew, with its announcement of the coming of a new nation—the kingdom of heaven—and the expectations Jesus has for those who choose to enter this kingdom. It’s a message that is both potently challenging and surprisingly freeing.

Is it a persistent illusion, or delusion, that we see ourselves as inherently better than the ancient followers of God? We scoff at their faithlessness. Why couldn’t they see the truth of what was going on? Why didn’t they listen to the prophets? Why did they worship those silly idols? We think if we had...

Good Church People have a problem with legalism. It’s a problem they recognize, but they can’t seem to rid themselves of it. The source of their legalism is in a place they’re afraid to look. It’s in the black box at the core of their faith. The black box that tells them who God is,...
