Episode 110 with Barnabas Piper.


Breaking Down Toxic Christian Culture with Humor

Is being a “serious” person just a cover? Barnabas Piper, assistant pastor of Immanuel Church of Nashville and cohost of the popular Happy Rant podcast, shares good-natured takedowns of trends and traditions in the church. Piper takes Christian culture and examines and critiques it using humor that causes us to laugh and encourages us to not take ourselves so seriously. He reminds us that joy and laughter go hand-in-hand and attract people to the Kingdom of God, and observes that people often take themselves seriously out of pride and insecurity, which can build obstacles between themselves and others. Unearth how you can be both a person of great conviction and still have a good time as a Christian.
