‘I Kissed Dating Goodbye’ author and former pastor of Covenant Life Church Joshua Harris has decided he wants to start getting paid to help questioning and confused souls deconstruct their faith by creating a program for that very thing at only $275 a pop. (Unless you were burned by purity culture, then you get in for free) The 5-week course begins September 21 and is geared towards those who are “asking the big questions” and rethinking some of their beliefs.
Considered one of the most famous apostates in the last 50 years to publicly repudiate his faith, Harris, now an open LGBTQ advocate, was last seen taking to Instagram where he praised Cardi B’s song WAP, explaining that it’s “basically the biblical book of Song of Solomon set to music” and pledging to block anyone who disparages her or her music.
He likewise explained that he as an atheist feels “closer to Jesus when I’m pissing religious people off,” and by and large has been praising people who deconstruct their faith, explaining that he does it because he still “cares about Christianity and what happens to it.”
This ‘make-me-into-an-atheist assembly line’ is called Reframe your Story, and some of the lessons and sessions will include:
- How family of origin and religious community give us a sense of identity and security
- How black and white thinking gives comfort and also robs us of freedom
- The role of disillusionment in unsettling rigid patterns of thinking
- Avoiding repeating your patterns with new dogma
- Giving yourself permission to let your deconstruction look however you want
- The beautiful, unsettling choice to live with uncertainty
- Replacing judgment with curiosity
- Moving toward being the truest version of yourself
For those who don’t want to go through the whole lesson, he has a starter-pack you can sign up for free, where he recommends resources by Bart Erhman, Rob Bell, Jo Luehman, Bishop John Shelby Spong, Vicky Beeching, Nadia Bolz Weber, and Rachel Held Evans- all people currently burning in hell or headed there unless Christ miraculously saves them.
Because we love you here at Protestia, we will enroll in the course and report on it so you don’t have to.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use.
