Courageous Conversations, Paul vs Jesus: Whose Words Carry More Weight?

Courageous Conversations pairs African American voices trained at conservative evangelical seminaries or divinity schools with African American voices trained at mainline seminaries or divinity schools to discuss controversial topics. 
They will have their first national Courageous Conversations event in Chicago, IL at the Historic Progressive Baptist Church on Monday, September 3rd. There will be 24 scholars and pastors to discuss topics like justice, the authority of scripture, sexuality, and gospel preaching.

  1. This looks like a stimulating event.

  2. I wonder what's their real purpose. Is this just another think tank? I mean...its so simple even how God used common folks and entrusted them with a simple truth, that if told can change the whole world. Yet these educated folks no matter how we pride them gathering from white evangelicals institution (those same white evangelical who are constantly berated) somehow can do what? Inquiring minds want to know before I find myself out of $1500.

  3. If nothing else, you will have a wonderful time in the beautiful, exciting, fun (great food!!) City of Chicago! (See for yourself - don't believe all of the bad hype).

    1. Couldn't be that great! Black folks mowing one another like blades of grass.

    2. Unfortunately, typical reporting of what's happening in the hoods.

  4. Ohhhh this is gonna be interesting! Hopefully I can watch online somewhere.

  5. I’ve never heard of this organization so I don’t know I’m just interested in the Paul vs Jesus and sexuality discussion lol

  6. There is mo such thing as Paul vs. Jesus. However, there is the war between objective truth vs. subjective truths.

  7. For preachers to develop a dogma that puts Paul vs. Jesus is heresy. For preachers to suggest the church must adapt our preaching to accept what the worlds propoganda is dangerous theology. The problem with the church today is many believe a pastor’s seminary degrees gives them the authority to change the Word of God. Docotorates does not make one more annointed or learned. I have witnessed God use unlearned preachers to build major ministries.

    1. I agree! There is no Paul vs Jesus!! Just goes to prove there are some EDUCATED FOOLS!!

  8. Are they serious with this.....?!!!
