035 Former Pastor Ryan Bell – Year Without God

Can A Christian Go A Year Without God?

Imagine devoting your life to your faith, to your church and to helping others, then to abruptly do a 180 and test your beliefs.  Now imagine finding your church in opposition to fundamental differences regarding equality, specifically marriage equality.  Imagine the trauma after investing your entire life in obtaining three degrees in Theology and being asked to quietly step down.

Imagine wondering if there is a God, then why he didn’t protect you from it all.  Former Pastor, Ryan Bell joined us live.  He graciously answered all our questions and was very candid.  Not once did he employ the tactics of his fellows, the mental gymnastics one must perform in order to skirt the painfully obvious problems.
