Does religious thinking actually make it more difficult to know God and if so, what can we do about it? Kent Burgess of Manchester, IL joins Wayne in this podcast as they discuss that religion isn't all that different from most of the ways the world thinks in that it drives us by fear and performance to try to control what's coming at them. As Kent shares from the dramatic changes in his thinking over the last decade, they talk about how political rancor and religious thinking actually draws us away from the space where God is most easily known and where we can enjoy a growing relationship with him. Both Wayne and Kent have engaged people recently that only found the God they were looking for when they got away from the demands of religion and connected in more natural ways with the God of the Bible.
Just to clarify, Kent is from Manchester, MO, not Illinois as Wayne mistakenly said on the podcast.
