- Spiritual Growth
Robin R. Meyers is a leader in returning to a more human Christianity, one based on “following Jesus, not worshiping Christ.” He eschews the evangelical belief system that emphasizes salvation through Christ’s “credentials” (His physical resurrection, ascension into heaven, virgin birth or position as the son of God). Meyers contends such thinking must be replaced by an action system, emulating Jesus by tenaciously addressing social issues such as greed, poverty and discrimination in any form.
Meyers has been the Senior Minister of the Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City since 1985. Teaching at Oklahoma City University since 1991, he is a Distinguished Professor of Social Justice in the Philosophy Department. He is a leading Jesus Scholar and author of seven books on Progressive Christianity and Western society.
During his time with us, Meyers he led us in discovery and conversations about the reunion of science and religion, engaging in spiritual defiance, and irresistible Christianity.
