The Fall Needed a Fix
Christ the Revealer and Restorer
Jesus came to reveal the truth of who we are, displaying and revealing the divine image in which we were created. This is a powerful truth, and yet many new age “Christ consciousness“ teachers limit the person of Jesus as being merely an example of a divinity into which we can all awaken or ascend.
But Jesus is...

Born Sinners? - The Jesus Trip

Born Sinners?
Do People Inherit Original Sin?
Many folks are taught we inherit Adam's sinful nature at birth - therefore man is totally depraved: that every word, thought and action is corrupt and we are incapable of doing good. The knee-jerk reaction to this extreme is to deny that man inherited a sinful nature at all ... but instead we only become sinners when we ourselves...

Was the Cross Necessary? - The Jesus Trip

Was the Cross Necessary?
What Jesus Did and Did Not Accomplish
What is the purpose of the cross? Most Evangelicals will tell you that it was satisfying the Father's wrath or His demand for holiness by killing His only Son. But is that really true? And if not, then what was the point of Jesus dying?
Some today try to say that Jesus did not need to die...

Evangelical Arianism - The Jesus Trip

Evangelical Arianism
The Paganism of Western Christianity
While Evangelicals would never claim outright that Jesus Christ is of a lesser substance than His Father, the fact is the majority actually deny His Lordship and full divinity. How? By believing the Father abandoned the Son on the cross, in order to satisfy some "higher" sense of holiness or justice. This wrong way of thinking puts Jesus down the...

Unity with Distinction
Understanding Immortalized Humanity
In the religious world today, we find several polar extremes. In the West, the church often teaches that that mankind is separate from God (dualism). In many Eastern religions, on the other hand, everything is considered to be a part of God (we ourselves being extensions of God, or we are “absorbed” into Him).
This week, John Crowder takes us back to...

Why is the Trinity Important? - The Jesus Trip

Why is the Trinity Important?
The Trinity vs. The Demiurge
Modern Western Christianity is still highly influenced by the pagan Greek philosophy of Plato - his concept of a solitary, distant "unmoved mover" in the sky is still the common perspective most churchgoers today have of "God." But the Glory of the Gospel is that we have been effortlessly brought into a God of relationality, in whom...

Did the Church Make Jesus God? - The Jesus Trip

Did the Church Make Jesus God?
A Created Christ or Christ the Creator?
The church has drifted far from it's basic understanding of Christology and the Trinity as anchored in the Nicene Creed. In fact, one rarely ever hears a sermon on Jesus Christ as the Creator. Often His divinity is diminished as if He is somehow less than the Father.
A common conspiracy theory myth is that...

Is Theology Irrelevant?
Why Waste Time Thinking About God?
Pushing into 2019, we are layering a foundation for a return to a Jesus-centered, Trinitarian theology. But the question must be asked, "Is theology relevant or important at all?" Because if we are honest, most Christians think theology is unimportant, divisive, dry, boring or not applicable to their daily lives. Many think theology itself is outright dangerous and...

The God Contraption
The Mythological God of Our Own Making
There are countless theological differences and divisions out there. But every rival camp is exactly the same in that they are constructing an idolatrous concept of a "God" based on their own mental guesswork - trying to describe the unknowable, ineffable God who will always be beyond our comprehension.
This week, John Crowder blasts gurus and theological know-it-alls...
