In Episode 010 of the #AskSteveAustin Podcast, Steve Austin tackles the idea that our humanity matters more than our religious labels.
So this is a Christian community? Sure. And we’re also atheists, agnostics, Protestants, Catholics, non-religious Jews, mystics, blacks, whites, straights, gays, transgenders, and everyone in-between. We’re not here to argue sacred vs. secular or Sunday vs. Monday. We’re less concerned with theological rightness and far more passionate about kindness. We’re here to encourage everyone who shows up, from all walks of life, to keep on keepin’ on in the constant push and pull of a life that is rarely ever easy.
So you’re listening to this and wondering if I have lost my faith or lost my mind….no. But I’m giving myself permission to wrestle. To question. To be human.
I’ve known plenty of people who live a sterilized religious life, can quote the Bible cover-to-cover, but don’t give a damn about their neighbor. People who are more concerned with being outwardly polished than inwardly honest. Those who are more obsessed with following the rules and being approved by Americanized Christian culture, than giving a cup of cold water to a thirsty person. I was that person, too, the first twenty-eight years of my life.
But Jesus was different. Jesus taught us to live our lives, with Love as the motive for everything we do.
That's what this episode is all about.
