406: QAnon & Rediscipling the White Church with David Swanson




Did Bill Gates create the pandemic? Are Democrats running a child-trafficking cartel? Is Trump a secret genius sending coded messages in his tweets? Conspiracy theories are spreading among evangelicals faster than Covid-19. The Holy Post crew discusses The Atlantic’s cover story about QAnon, why it’s so appealing to Christians, and why it’s a dangerous heresy.


Then, Skye talks with Chicago pastor David Swanson about his new book “Rediscipling the White Church,” and what would change if pastors began to see racism as a discipleship problem and not merely a social one. Plus—is God against face masks? And a rockstar is hospitalized after an “over-enthusiastic gardening accident.”

@Jarrod, you wrote: "Every indication is that, in 20 years, that will no longer be the case [that QAnon and Christianity will be indistinguishable]." I sincerely, deeply hope you're wrong and I see every reason to believe that you are no matter how fast it appears to be growing today. There are lots of Christians who have rejected it and not all that go in stay there, thankfully. Remember what God said to Elijah when he complained he was the last one and he was being hunted down, too.

I am glad that you discussed QAnon on your program. I heard about QAnon in a couple of documentaries, but haven't really paid attention to that aspect as much as some of the connections around the world that have intent of doing evil. I am a little surprised that your radio program quickly dismissed some of the evil that QAnon might have mentioned.

Regarding Bill Gates, I don't think that his role in vaccines and the propagation of them should be so easily dismissed either. I believe he played a role in creating the virus, if it is indeed a new virus and not a newly labeled illness that has been around for a long time, like a rebranding of…

This episode was super interesting to me. I find it extremely useful & necessary to remind ourselves that YHWH invites us into Peace, not fear.


I personally believe a useful tool for reminding ourselves of this is in meditation, which is why I create & host a podcast on Christian Meditation called Harkening Deer. However, I have run into a number of Christians over the years who feel meditation is not a Christian practice & seem fearful of the word.


I would love to hear your thoughts on meditation, Phil, Skye, & Christian!

Thank you for another humorous and thought-provoking episode. My wife and I were discussing how so many of the questions you guys raise are valuable instruments for discipleship. The best questions reach to the deepest things we wrongly rely on. Thank for for helping us grow.
