Favored or Forsaken: Leaving the Church

Following recent high-profile Christians leaving various denominations, local churches, or Christianity completely, we explore the topic of leaving the church to decide if it is favored or forsaken. Is this recent phenomenon the equivalent of a Covid divorce? Or has this unrest been a slow simmer that has just now reached its boiling point? Join Knox, Jamie, and Erin as they explore what makes someone leave either a church or the Church and find out if there’s more going on to “leaving the church” than just ghosting a building.
