Hi Friend, I'm Colby Martin.

 

For the past 20 years I've been studying the Bible as a Pastor, seeking to better understand God, myself, and the world around me.

I've come to see that Jesus was right: the most important thing in life really is LOVE.

My Story

 

I was born and raised in conservative, evangelical Christianity. As such, I believed (because I was taught) that the Bible--and therefore, God--was against homosexuality.

 

But then I actually studied the passages for myself, and everything changed.

 

Turns out, an honest and thorough review of the Clobber Passages reveals that there is no Biblical justification to discriminate against those who identify LGBTQ.

 

And that's why I do this UnClobber work. Because as Jesus once said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."

 

Books, Podcasts, Live-Shows, Oh My!

Here are some of my other projects and things I do in the world.

A Survival Guide for Becoming a Progressive Christian

My second book (after UnClobber) is, "The SHIFT: Surviving and Thriving after Moving from Conservative to Progressive Christianity."

It's about normalizing the experience we have as we leave our more conservative churches and families, and helping us find our toward a faith more whole and more peace-filled.

On Wednesday mornings I send out a free newsletter called Perspective Shift, where I muse about the intersection of religion, spirituality, and psychology.

Then I go online at 2pm PST on my YouTube Channel and Facebook page to discuss it with you!

The Kate & Colby Show

My wife and I not only started a church together (Sojourn Grace Collective), we also started a podcast-turned-live-show.

The Kate & Colby Show airs LIVE Wednesdays at 7pm PST (YouTube and/or FB).
