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

Faith deconstruction is not necessarily a bad thing.

If your past experience has not been a biblical Christian experience but was just a distortion of true Christianity, then deconstruction and reconstruction is exactly what needs to happen.

For the reconstruction process, it’s important to remember the principle that  “To recover your faith, you need to recover the faith.” To do this, a clear understanding of three key areas is necessary:

  1. Who God is
  2. Who we are
  3. What sin is

In this podcast episode, Scott and Shawn discuss

  • A young man’s real-life story about his experience with Christianity and the challenge of a distorted view of biblical faith in these three key areas
  • How to begin deconstructing caricatures of Christianity and reconstruct a biblical view of God and ourselves
  • What the essence of sin is and how it impacts our experience as humans
  • How we can talk about sin to others in a way that helps and doesn’t hinder

To help you dig deeper, here are some suggested Bible verses to explore:

  • God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith (Romans 3:25).
  • And He, when He comes, will convict the world regarding sin, and righteousness, and judgment (John 16:8).
  • For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people (Hebrews 2:17).
