A series about all of the ways that religion can go wrong. And the hope that what God had in mind is actually better.
Breaking the Power of Deligion
Stones, Planks, and What God is Really Like
In this fifth installment of our “Deligion” series, Josh invites us to think about what the God Jesus reveals is like. This God doesn’t condemn, but instead extends much needed grace to us, and in the process, our dignity as well. This is a huge contrast to Deligion, which seeks to dehumanize and condemn.

Where The Wind Blows
For week 3 of our “Deligion” series, Pastor Josh Scott brings a message of freedom, peace and liberation, as opposed to the religion that many of us have experienced of oppression, conflict and manipulation. So often, religion encourages people to obey laws, fall in line and become like everyone else. But true religion allows the spirit to move like the wind; going where it wills and fills up our lives. It is outside of our control or manipulation. We must ask ourselves, as we search for where God is at work: where is the wind blowing?
They Have No More Wine
Who hasn’t heard someone say “Religion is so stuffy” or “Religion is just a bunch of rules” before? So in this week of our “Deligion” series, Pastor Josh Scott explains how religion that is spirit filled is so much more than the constraints we try to keep it in. Jesus wants to show us that there is a new life that He offers to us.
It’s Easter Sunday at MCC and we’re beginning a new series called “Deligion” where we discuss how God never intended for religion to be something that was ever hurtful. The church in the general public is viewed as something that is deceptive, hateful and even greedy at times. Jesus dies and rises again to bring a new creation in us, as individuals and the church. He desires to recreate us in the middle of where we are: to be people of hope, love and second chances.
