The crowdfunding campaign for Emery's new album is live. Click to see what's up!

Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. Campaigns are projects we are currently working on.

I Judge

If you've been listening to our podcasts lately, you will understand why people accuse us of judging. We've even called out public figures and pastors like Jarrid Wilson. Not all judging is wrong, and God's people need to stop being so concerned about how they appear. If Jesus is the hero, why do we go ape-shit when some one talks bad about us? At the same time, ALL judging needs to be motivated by love. Otherwise, it's a "clanging symbol." But, let's remember: "Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid" (Proverbs 12:1). In this week’s post, Joey explores his sinful judging that unfortunately has no "love motivation" at all. Is this sort of judging unavoidable? Natural? Can our love overcome something so intertwined with our sinful nature?
