The messages the American church needs

BZ has been through the various iterations of Christianity the past few decades and comes out on the other side with hard won wisdom. The only sermon podcast I listen to every week. This is ancient wisdom but it sounds fresh as it rings in contrast to the din of American evangelicalism.

Life changing

The church didn’t change my life but the body of Christ (the people) that seek after Him feed me life I never knew was in me. Holy Spirit filled lives showed me He lives in me. Come visit and (fill)your life change.

Word of Life Church Experience

As a first time visitor at Word of Life, it was completely heart-warming and welcoming. I strongly recommend Word of Life to anyone who’s searching for a great Church home.

Can’t stop listening

I came just to check out Brian Zahnd and what he teaches like as I’m starting to read one of his books. While his preaching style was not my favorite to start with, now I can’t stop listening. His heart for Jesus comes through and it is beautiful to listen to. I was unfamiliar with him until 2 weeks ago, but I love this podcast and his messages.

Mount Rushmore of spiritual influences

after discovering BZ via twitter some 5ish years ago...it has become evident in my life that he is etched into my Mount Rushmore of spiritual influences. over the past few years, I have come to grips with the ugliness of my own triumphalistic, American, Pop, Christian piety. With the help of voices like BZ, I’ve moved on from dualistic, loud, combative, riot Christianity...and I’m daily pursuing the long obedience in the same direction of non-dualistic, contemplative, quiet Christianity...love being the ultimate goal. Thank you BZ, and WOLC. The trajectory of my life has literally been changed because of your faithful witness to the love of God revealed in Jesus.

Intellectual, contemplative, and a prophetic word for the American church.

I discovered pastor Brian at a turning point in my faith. My evangelical upbringing had given me a solid foundational knowledge of scripture, but the lens with which I had been reading scripture left me searching for something more. Pastor Brian introduced me to the beautiful array of ecumenical lenses that make up the stained glass of the cathedral of Christianity. The world from this vantage point is much more beautiful. He is short on cheap or simple answers, but so was Christ. In my old paradigm, my mind was at odds with my heart, fearful of testing the limits of my tidy understanding of God and of Scripture. Pastor Brian demonstrates that even a brilliant mind can find fulfillment in the deep truths of God. I no longer fear that humbly seeking truth could lead anywhere but to Jesus. In this freedom I can see that Christ now fills all things everywhere with himself. Brian’s teachings may sound foreign to the American evangelical at first—I was very skeptical. I have since found that his teachings are orthodox and he espouses only the highest view of Christ. For curious evangelicals, I recommend starting in about 2010 and joining him on the journey as I did.

One of the Best

This is an incredible podcast. These messages from Brian Zahnd will challenge you and stretch your faith. As a small town pastor of a tiny church in the Bible Belt, these messages have been a lifeline for me.

Please research the atonement for yourself

While Brian is an incredibly gifted orator, he is incredibly mislead regarding a few theologies, namely the atonement. Jesus died in our place for our sins (Isaiah 53, 1 John 2:2, John 1:29, Romans 3:25, John 10:11, Romans 5:10, 1 Peter 2:24, Leviticus 17:11, Matthew 26:28, 2 Corinthians 5:21, etc.). Hebrews 9:22 “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”The Father is not cruel by placing his wrath on Jesus. The Trinity is one and make decisions together. Revelation 13:8 speaks to this when it calls Jesus “the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.” I hope Brian sees the error of his ways and turns back to the Lord.

Pastor Brian Zhand

Brian Zhand is one of the great pastoral and theological minds out there today. He encourages and challenges my own thinking and approach to faith.

Life changing

Brian Zahnd's podcast has reshaped my view of everything and taken away so much hate, anger and fear. His book rocked my world and I've been on a path for peace ever since. I'm just gobbling up every podcast posted from my home in Oklahoma and would totally make a road trip to Missouri just to hear him preach.

Amped Up 4 Jesus

I have not been in MS that long but I became a member of this Church quickly after seeing the pastor heart for people and his obedience to God. It's been days that me and my wife was facing struggles and during Bible Study on Wed. Pastor Joel would say God wants him to speak on something other than what he planned on and it would be concerning what me and my wife was struggling with. This has happened a couple of times giving me confirmation that Pastor Joel hears from God. OnNigh!!!
