My latest interview with the Here Apocalypse YouTube Channel covers a range of issues concerning progressive Christianity and the evangelical misinformation peddlers. ?
Over the last year, I have been seeking for an evangelical apologist who is willing to defend in debate Alisa Childers’ claim that progressive Christianity is another religion. Last week, David Wolcott agreed. Here is the debate hosted by Tim Hull:
Alisa Childers is spreading misinformation and promoting paranoia with regard to the concepts of pantheism and panentheism. In this video, I offer a reply. ?
In my latest video, I review a podcast in which Alisa Childers talks about how she thinks Rachel Held Evans was not a Christian but she still hopes Evans repented and was saved before she died. Be careful, this may raise your blood pressure. ?
In the last three years, Alisa Childers has become a key conservative evangelical influencer. But her popular 2020 book “Another Gospel?” promotes a false and harmful thesis about progressive Christian brothers and sisters. ?
In this video, I interact with an excerpt from a new Sean McDowell interview with Alisa Childers in which she makes vague references to “the world” as a mere foil for her own views and appears to endorse a bracing moral skepticism. ?
This video offers a direct reply to critics who claim that it is rude or mean or otherwise un-Christian to call out Alisa Childers for repeatedly and unapologetically spreading false and harmful claims about fellow Christians.

However, Childers’ thesis is not salvagable. As I demonstrate […]
While I have been unable to find any scholar willing to defend Alisa Childers’ thesis that progressive Christianity is another religion, her book Another Gospel? has many defenders on social media. In this video, I offer a response to three common attempts to defend Childers’ book. ?
Today, I received the following comment in response to a YouTube video in which I critique Sean McDowell’s misinformation about progressive Christians. The comment sounds like a string of talking points from conservative evangelicals like Alisa Childers, Mike Winger, and Sean McDowell. To begin with, the comment offers an absolute binary judgment in which progressive […]
This article consists of three excerpts from one chapter in my book Progressive Christians Love Jesus Too. To read more, pick up a copy of the book! Time and again, I find a common error among many conservative Christians: they confuse a healthy awareness of our own fallibility in knowledge with relativism about truth. For […]
Yesterday, Capturing Christianity hosted Joshua Swamidass for a conversation in which Swamidass provided a response to my book Progressive Christians Love Jesus Too and the wider progressive/evangelical conversation. In this article, I’m going to provide a bullet-point response to aspects of the conversation. I look forward to speaking with Swamidass about this in the future […]
