About the show

Like many others, we (Steve & Nathan) are on a spiritual journey of deconstruction and reconstruction to find what God truly wants of us. Just like Israel followed the pillar of fire in the desert, we want to follow God wherever we are led. And just like Israel, we get lost a lot, we get it wrong a lot, but we're trying our best to follow and have a relationship with the Father. Join us on the journey!

Our theme music is by Daniel Wheat!

Episodes

  • 6: It’s not about farming: Is the Bible everything we think it is?

    March 31st, 2021  |  1 hr 24 mins

    We’re going to talk about the B.I.B.L.E. and discuss whether it’s the book for us. Where’d it come from? Is it truth? What is truth? Then we get deeper and deeper. Come follow along as we try to figure this out.

  • 5: The G.O.D. Club: The problem of Christian moral superiority

    March 24th, 2021  |  1 hr 16 mins

    Nathan shares his thoughts on how misunderstanding "Good Guys vs. Bad Guys" can lead to an inverted gospel of moral superiority, and how it contributes to the problem of "Us Against Them." And, along the way, Nathan realizes that he's not the Jedi he thought, but he was the Sith the whole time.

  • 4: Flossing Deconstructed: More things we accidentally learned in church

    March 17th, 2021  |  1 hr 2 mins

    On this episode we continue our conversation of the list of some of the small things on Steve’s mind like eternity, the Old Testament and the New Testament and what things we’re supposed to get out of them, and what does it mean to talk to God.

    We’re just barely getting in to these topics, but we plan on diving deeper on all of them in the future, and we really want to know your thoughts, comments, questions, and concerns. So PLEASE send us an email at FollowingTheFirePodcast@gmail.com - we’d love to hear from you, maybe answer your questions or work your comments into a future episode.
