Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest, author of several books, and the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His teachings are gaining influence, especially among millennials who grew up in the Evangelical church. He is particularly influential in the progressive Christian movement and is referred to as a spiritual father, hero, and mentor by well-known progressive voices. But what does he really believe? In today's video, I analyze Rohr's teachings regarding the gospel and focus especially on his view of the Bible, which he believes does not give a clear theology of God and is full of contradictions.

Alisa, I have been subscribed to your YouTube channel now for quite some now. I just absolutely love what you’re talking about and has opened up my eyes to so many things within the church in our society and unfortunately even my parents.

I just listened to episode 91 (I don't see a specific episode page for #91...so I'm posting it here since my comment is in regards to the segment with Marcia). I read David Benner's The Gift of Being Yourself for my Marriage and Family Therapy Degree...in seminary. It has been over 15 years since I read it but I knew immediately which book Marcia was speaking of and we absolutely spent time slowly working through it. It's not a long book, it's rather short but a lot of emphasis was put on it. I find it interesting this book came up because in recent years, a number of things have come out of my Seminary Days that have caused me to scratch my head - conversations with fellow graduates I still have contact with, comments from professors & pastors, etc. I was young when I went through seminary. I was really busy and exhausted most of the time but I wonder now if it was God's grace....if He was protecting my heart from wandering down a side-path. The seminary was a wonderful school and it's quite possible many of the changes occurred after my time but I have never been more convinced of the need to diligently test everything against the Bible.

One of the most important people in my walk with God has a podcast now, and I was so excited to get to listen to him more.
