The Government Can’t Fix Your Heart Hole
After spending time in politics, Rachel realized that many issues that society faces as a whole cannot be remedied by governmental change. Corrupt politicians, the break down of the family, general confusion and fear about the future were indicative of a problem below the surface – the spiritual foundation of society was crumbling.
Spiritual problems can never be fixed through governmental policy.
Your Won’t Know His Voice If Your Don’t Know His Word
As a Christian since 1990, she noticed that the main culprit of many of the problems arising in society were due to a lack of Biblically sound teaching in the Church, which was on the rise thanks to general Biblical illiteracy of both those in the pulpit and the parishioners.
God Raises Up A Standard
In winter of 2016, Rachel decided that she’d tackle the problem of Biblical illiteracy by creating a YouTube channel geared toward those in their mid teens to late thirties. This channel which would center around explaining the Bible verses by verse in an entertaining way. In addition to explaining the Bible, Rachel knew she had to tackle another huge problem in modern Christianity – answering sensitive viewer questions.
While some people may be interested in understanding scripture, many people just want to know “what does the Bible say about (the topics most pastors are too embarrassed to preach about?)”
Unfortunately, many churches don’t or can’t explain the stories of the Bible in a relevant, entertaining or contextual manner. This was the gap in the market that Rachel saw needed to be fulfilled and one that she was equipped to tackle. Her channel began filming in January of 2017.
When she’s not working on the next installment of Crack Your Bible, Rachel N. Stephens spends her time learning Greek and working out with her personal trainer / husband. She enjoys reading books such as Like Water For Chocolate, The Richest Man in Babylon and Tortured For Christ.
