About

The Shadowlands is not just a church, it’s an idea, an assembly of believers united around the concept of questioning everything, and answering the tough questions.

The church has lost its way. Gone are the days of the great thinkers being Men of God, instead, we are told to follow man-made traditions, ignore what the Bible says, ignore Jesus, ignore our conscience, stop questioning and follow along.

In theory: The Shadowlands are the place where our minds wander when the big questions go unanswered, where the existential exists, where great wonder turns to deep despair, and faith goes to die. Or where the spirit wanders when darkness of the soul realizes itself. It exists because of the modern church.

In practice: The Shadowlands Ministry exists to help answer those questions. To journey into the shadowlands and bring back those who where cast off by the church. How can we know there is a God? Is Jesus who he says he is? Did Jesus claim to be God? Can the bible be trusted? What about the Old Testament?

We look to answer those questions using the scriptures themselves, textual and historical criticism, reason, and good old logic.

Listen, you suck, I suck, let’s learn together!

Come join us!

Do You Want Answers?

When I was searching for something, I wrote down question after question and tried to answer them as best I could. See, I was looking for anything to give me the go ahead to either leave God completely, or figure this whole thing out. But after finding my way back to the bible and ultimately back to Jesus, I realized the answers to all the questions started coming after I first came to terms with these 7 questions.
