The Happy Rant podcast is a conversation which Barnabas Piper, Ted Kluck, and Ronnie Martin cheerfully (if sardonically) rant about all the things that don’t matter all that much and some things that do. Too much Christian interaction with culture is angry and vitriolic, so these three bring the humor, pith, and occasional irreverence to bear on it. They rant about church, culture, sports, the arts, entertainment, and occasional nonsense in a manner listeners enjoy and wish they could be part of too.

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas do as they always do - suss  out a random variety of church and culture topics of questionable importance.

  • Which pastor is which candy bar - Tim Keller, Matt Chandler, Don Carson, Mark Dever?
  • Shai Lynne and Lecrae are having a Christian hip hop beef. It's like Biggie and Tupac but way nicer. Of course we weighed in.
  • What do we think of personality evaluations like Myers-Briggs, Strengths Finder, and the Enneagram?

Um, props to Barnabas for representing the MBTI pretty darn well in this one! I knew he was an ENTP! Also, I strongly think that Ted was right about Ronnie's being an infp/enfp. I was like, what?!, when he said ENTJ...

It's all in how you use it to understand yourself and others in various scenarios. It can be quite helpful. I don't think organizations would use it so much if not. There's a lot of theory involved, so it can be taken in weirdish directions at times. But, used rightly, I think it's very helpful and interesting! So glad you guys finally addressed it, though I was hoping more of you would be excited about it. But, thanks, Barnabas!
