Episode 137 - Christian "Fame": An Honest Conversation on Evangelicalism, Recognition, and our Hidden Motivations for Being in Leadership

In Episode 137, Keith and Justin discuss their struggles with evangelical Christianity and their motivations for being in church. Justin opens up about his past and how it influenced how he received the Christian message. He also talks about a recent experience he had in Cambridge that caused him to rethink the motivations behind his faith. The guys talk about gaining "fame" and notoriety in the church, and how that can be a dangerous road to narcissism and self-righteousness. Finally, the guys attempt to get to the roots of our deisre to be known, and whether such a fundamental human quality is contrustive or destructive to ourselves and our relationships to those around us. Finally, we also discuss the relationship between our spiritual lives and our mundane, everyday bodily experiences. We get really vulnerable and honest in this episode, so be sure to listen in! In the beginning, Keith talks about the new Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie, and Justin talks about eating authentic German cusine and getting buzzed from only one beer. As always, we are joined once again by Darcy Rumble as we critically examine Stephen Christian's new worship album, Wildfires. Finally, the guys wrap up the show by talking about Twitter conversations, and they give their final thoughts! As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast.
