Partner for $3

“Christians need to face the truth of who we are.” That’s what Professor Iwan Russell-Jones told us, and it’s why we took a hard look at Hillsong through the FX/Hulu docuseries “The Secrets of Hillsong.” In this episode we talk about church as the show and what it is costing us. We also talk about:

  • the docuseries as Carl Lentz’s redemption vehicle
  • the cost of spiritual abuse
  • should church be charging money for attendance and paying volunteers?
