During my chores today I finally caught up with This American Life podcasts. I just finished listening to episode 304: Heretics. I come from a bit of a charismatic background, so the story had a big impact on me. I highly recommend giving it a listen:
Carlton Pearson’s church, Higher Dimensions, was once one of the biggest in the city, drawing crowds of 5,000 people every Sunday. But several years ago, scandal engulfed the reverend. He didn’t have an affair. He didn’t embezzle lots of money. His sin was something that to a lot of people is far worse: He stopped believing in Hell.
