44 - Funerals, Altar Calls, and Grace without Belief

March 17, 2017

It’s #JCTF and we’re back!  We talk about Dwayne’s struggle with vertigo, Ethan’s dizzyingly scandalous comedy projects, and try to update you on everything that’s been going on since we last recorded.  In particular, we’re discussing Ethan’s fundamentalist family again, because he’s recently returned from the funeral of his grandfather, who was an influential fundamentalist Baptist pastor.  We dig deep into Ethan’s childhood as he remembers being terrified at “altar calls” and not knowing whether he knew that he was “saved”.  And Pastor Dwayne tries to help us understand whether it’s possible to receive God’s grace without pinning down “salvation” as an object of knowledge.  It’s deep theology but it’s also deeply personal… and we hope deeply funny!  Listen now!

And, one more thing, faithful listener- we just hope you’ll have your own “come to Jesus” moment right now- and give us a 5-star review on your iPhone or iTunes!
