This site endeavors to wrestle with Jesus, the Scriptures, the proclamation of the kingdom of God,
the call and mission of the Church as bearers of the kingdom, and the challenge of living in the 21st century.

  Unveiling the Kingdom: Empire, Power, and the Gospel

Has the Western Evangelical Church lost its way? In this series of livestreams, I will delve into the intersection of faith, culture, and politics through the lens of the biblical text. We will challenge common assumptions about how we perceive the Kingdom of God in today's world dominated by empire and power structures. Drawing on insights from scripture and historical context, we will explore why understanding the Bible beyond our modern cultural lens is crucial. We will tackle tough questions such as the true nature of the Kingdom of God versus the kingdoms of the World, the seductive power of empire, and the implications for our faith and daily lives.
