#BREAKING Polls are set to open in 48 hours across the US as the authoritarian regime of Donald Trump attempts to consolidate its hold over the troubled, oil-rich, nuclear-armed, north American nation. Analysts are sceptical the election will end months of political violence.
This is a recommendation for a Christian podcast that I found useful as an autistic person. I dislike hypocrisy, triteness, and illogical interpretations of scripture and I haven't been to a church in years.
The podcast is called "Exploring My Strange Bible", and Tim Mackie describes himself as a 'Bible history and language nerd who think Jesus is utterly amazing.' He is very open and honest about the weird parts of the Bible and doesn't try to whitewash it.
He is also genuinely excited about the Bible and has a really in-depth knowledge of the history, geography and languages of the Bible. I have found his podcasts refreshing, interesting and genuinely helpful.
I have struggled to find Christian resources that don't bore me to tears or nauseate me, and I thought there might be other autistic folk who might find this recommendation useful. bibleproject.com/podcasts/ex…
