Customer Reviews

this is church!

This podcast was recommended to me from a female pastor friend who knew I was going thru one of the toughest times in my life! I had never heard of Derek ( the musician ) when this journey began but I can’t even explain how relatable most of the conversations are personally to me and the warmth and trust I feel from being a part of this community! I will be sharing my story with your team soon via your website and want to thank you, even though you’ll probably not accept it, for your courage and transparency that has begun to help me heal!

Whiny and pathetic

At first this was interesting, but after two or three episodes of listening to these insecure drama-addicts wallow in pretentious self-pity, I couldn’t take any more. It’s looking more and more like “deconstruction” is nothing but the newest, edgy, Christian Church fad...if you were really leaving Christianity you would just leave, you wouldn’t feel the need to hang around and brag about it to Christians. Struggle is one thing, making an album that revels in your moral failures and using struggle as a marketing gimmick to convince people you’re “just being honest” is something else.
“I screwed up my life, so God must not be real, boo hoo hoo.”
Stop crying, staring into your navel, and grow a backbone. The immaturity and naïveté on this podcast is nauseating. None of this has happened to you, you did it all to yourself.
PS- I know LOTS of drunks who are way better at justifying their alcoholism than you are. Give it up.


It’s one thing to deconstruct your faith and point to legitimate abuses and wrongs in the church as reasons why, but it’s quite another to then commiserate and complain that the faith you’ve left hasn’t remade itself in your own image. This podcast claims the former but consistently wallows in the latter. The bitterness and arrogance in the producers and their claims about Christianity as a whole based purely on their own experiences in a very specific, very small subculture within it often ruin conversations and their ability to reach an audience wider than those who share exactly their own views.
