How Would Jesus React to Greta Thunberg?

If you’re like me, you’ve probably asked yourself in the last few weeks, “Who is Greta Thunberg?”

In light of the rise of Greta Thunberg and the unprecedented scale of the amazon fires, the boys felt it was time to talk about the environment. They ask, why has the environment become a political issue, and is it tight that Christians are often the most apathetic when it comes to global warming. They attempt to find clarity and a firm footing in the murky waters that is the environment debate…

You will laugh, you will cry, but you won’t be bored.

Find Rest for Your Restless Heart

For a long time, I woke up feeling anxious. I would run through the list of possible causes, and as the busyness of the day kicked in, the anxiety would settle into the background - it wouldn’t be gone, just less dominating.

In this episode of the podcast, David, Luke, and Ben talk with Youtube influencer and atheist Finn Mckenty about his video “What Killed Christian Core?”

In his video, Finn breaks down the decline of the Christian hardcore scene and makes several interesting observations. He challenges the double standard of a secular culture that allows everyone to speak their minds except Christians. Finn criticizes Christian who lead double lives, or abuse religion for fame, wealth, or power.

During the discussion, they cover a variety of critical topics, including hypocrisy, the role of art in culture, and the existence of God.

A few days ago, the Provoke & Inspire team conducted a focus group with eight unchurched young people from the Twin Cities. When the idea was first proposed, I had my reservations. I was in the middle of a crazy summer touring season and frankly, I wasn’t sure if it would work. Yet despite my hesitations, we moved forward.

In this episode of the podcast, Luke, David, and Ben talk with influential thought leader Dr. Michael Brown.

We discussed the broken sexuality of our culture, how a follower of Jesus should engage with politics, as well as how to defend the truth in a way that honors Jesus.
