One of my favorite people in the world is a man named Barrett Johnson. Barrett is a man with a good heart and who is truly a deep well. Barrett is also one of the most talented songwriters that I know. I am very happy to have the privilege of interviewing him here on The Love Cast. This is part 1 of a two part interview where Barrett talks about his life's journey, some of his religious deconstruction, and his current understanding of God and scripture. Get a cup of tea or coffee and give this a listen. You will be blessed!

As human beings, we have been deeply affected by 'the lie of lack'. As a result, we have become blinded to our inherit goodness. Chances are, if you've been a part of the religious system, you know that 'the lie of lack' has simply been repackaged to assault our identity by accusing our flesh of being inheritly evil.
What do the scriptures really teach about our flesh? Is our flesh inheritly evil, or is our flesh inheritly good? In this episode of The Love Cast, Jamal explores the root of human nature and also explores how the 'lie of lack' has affected our flesh. Jamal also discusses why knowing the truth about the inherit goodness of our flesh is key to our freedom. This is part one of a very important four part series about 'the lie of lack'.
