Today on Revs Reels, we are happy to once again be featuring the eloquent Professor of Philosophy, Dr. Ted Preston.
Today, Professor Preston brings us Part 2 of the issues many Christians face about "philosophy" and whether or not it can harm their faith. It's a true fear that many Christians faced as they approach entering into college and in choosing our classes. This fear of Philosophy is sadly perpetuated by those who either don't understand how Philosophy can strengthen one's faith, or by those who understand that Philosophy can be quite transformative in broadening our thinking about faith, about God, and about other people. This is part two of Professor Preston's two part series on "Philosophy and Faith."
Please give him another warm welcome with a thumbs up and a comment.😀👍 We'd love to hear your thoughts and comments.
What happens if you push yourself too hard? What happens when your body tells you to stop yet, you keep going? Portia shares how self-care brought her back to health and it can help you too. Portia is passionate about promoting a holistic and inclusive approach to self-care that takes into consideration how cultural and social factors as well as experiences of discrimination based on identity markers (e.g. race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation) may trigger one's need for self-care and shape one's willingness--or reluctance---to engage in self-care practices. Preston has been an Assistant Professor of Public Health at Cal State Los Angeles for the past three years, and will transition to Cal State Fullerton, this Fall. Her research focuses on addressing health disparities and promoting health equity through inclusive approaches to self-care at the individual and organizational level. She earned her Doctorate of Public Health from UCLA, a Masters of Public Health in Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and her Bachelors degree in Cultural and Social Anthropology from Stanford University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

In this mini diary video I call out the worst advice churches give to parents with kids who are LGBTQ. If your church advises or even hints that you as a parent should shun your child, you need to find a new church or faith community. That kind advice is 100% inconsistent with the teachings of Jesus in the Bible.

In this mini dirty laundry diary video clip I ask "what would you do and how would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot? What if everyone else was LGBT Q+ and you were not, but if you wanted to get to heaven you had to make yourself change into being LGBT... That would be CRAZY right?" Yet that is what is pounded into LGBT people who want to be part of most church communities. Find an open and affirming church, a progressive church that welcomes everyone just like Jesus. This year documented proof will be made public that exposes the words that were taken out of the Bible and added in the Bible that would encourage Fundagelical churches to target and demonize the LGBTQ community. Get ready folks!✋😃🤚
In this quick video I cover one of the most offensive words used to disparage and dehumanize LGBTQ people. The "H" Word is used by fundamentalists and evangelicals, aka, Fundagelicals, to degrade the humanity of people they have been misled to believe the Bible condemns. It's not a Bible word. The Truth has been uncovered that the "H" Word was added to the Bible when certain members of the religious right within the publishing industry inserted the "H" word in the Bible to replace a word that is NOT who or what LGBT people are. It's the big cover-up and the Fundagelical agenda to marginalize and dehumanize LGBTQ people.

Today on Open Door OC Professor and Pastor, RC Wilkinson talks about the history of forcing women to "submit" to their "christian" husbands. Two of the by products women are left with in a society that misuses and misapplies Scripture to suppress the rights of women and to solidify the advantages of the patriarchy, is misogyny and inequality. How do you see it?

Author, researcher, and advocate for the LGBTQ Community, Kathy Baldock tells the stories of people involved who helped get us where we are today in our quest for the truth, and for equal rights. Kathy is leading the way to the mainstream churches and helping them to embrace the kind of inclusiveness Jesus calls us to.
