Did you catch the first episode in the series, Deconstructing Faith: Series Introduction?

Wouldn't we all be better off to let people feel free to believe what they want and just agree to get along?  There's no need to get so tied up with the particulars of what we believe. We should just follow the golden rule: Do to others what you would have them do to you!

This case is often made by those deconstructing their faith.

The common thread throughout our discussion on faith deconstruction so far has been that "The journey to recovering your faith, is about recovering the faith." Undergirding this key aim is understanding that right belief and right behaviour are inextricably linked in the quest to discover the faith.

In this episode, Scott and Shawn discuss

  • The relationship between right belief and right behaviour and why Christianity is not just behaviour modification
  • What ultimately determines how we apply the golden rule
  • A helpful principle to live by when it comes to responding to primary issues vs secondary issues of the Christian faith
  • The real reason why Jesus came to die and how this relates to both the core of Christianity and how we live out the Christian faith toward others
