The Podcast for People with Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

the Non-Partisan Evangelical

Is God Republican and Conservative?
What If It's About People and Not Politics?

the Bible tells the story of Jesus looking in the eyes of the religious leaders of his day and saying “Wow, you can see the sky and predict the weather but you can’t discern what is happening in this time or God’s purpose for today.”

What would he say were Jesus in the flesh in front of us today? Would he endorse our politically-partnered evangelical churches? or challenge the hearts of Christians to think deeply about God’s true heart for the issues of our culture.

Let’s have a real discussion – with people who have “eyes to see and ears to hear” – how we can more fully represent the life demonstrated by Jesus in the Gospels towards people, social issues and ways to bring positive transformation to our communities as we live out our faith.

Meet the Non-Partisan Evangelical Founder

Paul Swearengin

Paul Swearengin

Author, Content Creator, Commentator and Personal Development Mentor
In his career, Paul has served as a sportscaster/talk show host, business owner, health care business developer and is a founder of a church. Paul believes God has more for people than just inviting them to sit together in seats on a Sunday. When true virtues of Christ are in action in a city and region, that city will be a better place for its citizens to live. Paul encourages all followers of Christ to put these beliefs into action for the welfare of their city, state, region and the world.

About Non-Partisan Evangelical​

Create a platform, through the sharing of created content, written, audio, video, and live on-line and in-person gatherings, of today’s cultural issues from a biblical, non-partisan perspective. From this platform we will build a community that gives a place and a voice to those who feel left out or confused by the going mindset of the Christian, ideologically partisan, Conservative Evangelical Church.

NPE followers will more deeply explore how God views today’s culture through a process described in Romans 12:2 that requires God-followers to not be conformed to the going mindset of those in a small circle but to be transformed by a renewing of our beliefs and ideas. We believe Jesus displayed a better way of living and we want to explore how to better live a life as Jesus demonstrated in the Gospels.
