Play Download media

Why is it so common for some to desire to exert control over others? In this conversation, Steve and Ray talk about control and the many manifestations it makes within the context of Christianity and religion. Prompted by a video (visit the website to view) of a church service that has been making the rounds online recently, Steve and Ray talk about how control is sought through titles, ministry positions, education, expectations, and the influence of groupthink.  Join us as we kick control to the curb and seek to build a walk with God and others based solely on love.
