JP & B discuss some modern forms of mysticism. One form it takes is when people say “I’m spiritual, but not religious.” Is that an acceptable way to secure salvation? Does it lead to selfishness? Or is it just fine?
- Bryce mentions a series of posts about today’s religious youth. Here are links – How Many Youth are we Losing?, Where are They Going?, Why do they Leave?, Why do they leave? II
- And the post that led Bryce to the afore-mentioned series: Moralistic Therapeutic Deism
JP referenced books “Boys Should be Boys” by Meg Meeker and the “Case for God” by Karen Armstrong. Also he quoted from an editorial from Daniel Wolpe in Time magazine.
Also, as a side note. Listener David alerted me to the fact that most android podcatchers were having trouble with that last few episodes. I think I have it all fixed now.
