Free To Love Is Now An Audio Book

Episode 19 of The Love Cast includes a special gift for listeners of this podcast. Jamal’s publisher (quoir publishing) has been given permission to give away a limited amount of the audio version of Free To Love to the listeners of this podcast.

In this episode, Jamal also shares an audio chapter of Free To Love entitled An Undissected Love which talks about the existence of the all encompassing nature of love (agape, phileo, eros, storge) that dwells all together at the same time in and through us for others in an undissected way. Understanding this can cut through a lot of the fear of close relationships, and can also have a revolutionary affect on how we understand what it means to truly love one another. Continue Reading…

The hunt is over...This episode of The Love Cast, Jamal talks about how the infamous ‘lie of lack‘ has blinded us to the inherit goodness of our flesh. 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 inherently evil, or is our flesh inherently good? Continue Reading…

Valorie ClarkIf you know me, you know that I LOVE people. I think people are the world’s greatest gifts. One of the more destructive aspects of the religious mindset is the way it blinds us from seeing light in all people. The more I have journeyed out of the evangelical mindset, the more I have been able to see the reality of John 1:4 which states: “In him was life, and that life was the light of ALL mankind”. I love that John states that this light (Christ) is the light of ALL! Continue Reading…

imageHi friends, I come to you in today’s post very pleased with the progress that my new book has made in the last couple of days.  As you may know, Free To Love released this past Sunday which was Valentine’s Day.  To my utter surprise, Amazon ranked my book as the #1 New Release in its category for two days! The book has also broke into the top 100 in two major categories as well. That means Free To Love is now classified as a best selling book. I am very encouraged by that considering how important this message is, and how arduous the journey has been for me to get it out to you.    

There’s a reason there is so much buzz surrounding this new book. Continue Reading…

I have nothing new to report; other than I am over 90% completed with phase 1 of this monumental project! Considering the fact that phase 1 is the largest phase of this project, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. In today’s post, I want to deviate just a bit from the norm of the past few months as I don’t have a noteworthy insight to share with you. Instead, I have a story about stripping. Yes, that’s right. Stripping. Stripping burkas. Continue Reading…

I love conversations. I treasure conversations. Especially conversations about what’s real. Jesus is our reality, and this reality illuminates all that is real, displacing lies in the process. Not only do I treasure these conversations, I also treasure sharing them with you. Recently, I had the opportunity to have one of these conversations about reality with Brandon Chase. I knew it was going to be good, so I decided to record it. Don’t worry, I did tell him in advance that I was going to be recording our conversation for quality & training purposes:)

If you have the ability to put some headphones in and listen as you go about your day, or if you can listen intently while sipping on a cup of coffee, let me encourage you to do so. I’m sure there are some nuggets of reality in here specifically for you. If you’re reading this by email, you’ll need to visit this post directly online to listen. Without further delay, here is our conversation:

Also, Brandon writes a superb blog. I highly recommend it! You can give it a read by clicking HERE.

Love!

Jamal

P.S. My first audio online conversation with Jared Gustafson from July 2014, about how to have lots of kids, can be heard HERE

UPDATE: Brandon and I had a follow up conversation to this interview in order to address vital questions from our listeners.  In this second conversation we talk about why Jesus openly contradicted some of what was written in the Old Testament writings, why it is mankind that desires a scapegoat and sacrifice (not God), and why Jesus really died on the cross.  It was a ground breaking conversation to say the least.  You can listen to that conversation HERE.
