ON THIS EPISODE
In episode 5 of the podcast, we’re getting political and things are getting complicated!
In this episode we tackle some difficult questions. Is America a Christian nation? Should it be? How does our faith intersect with our politics? And in light of that, what political fights should we be passionate about and which ones should we stay away from?
And what we really want to know is how we can be good citizens of Jesus’ heavenly Kingdom while also being good citizens of America. We hope to bring some nuance to this conversation, and we invite your (kindly worded) feedback!
If you have any questions you’d like to submit about this episode or have other topics of conversation you’d like us to explore in future episodes, you can connect with us over on our contact page. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and we’re excited to journey with you!
QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODEWe ought to submit to the authority of the ruling powers above us in the government, because God placed them there for our good. Click To TweetWe can be encouraged, because when Christians have no power and no authority, that's when the gospel spreads and transforms in ways that are just off the charts. Click To TweetGod gave commandments to us not because he wanted to come up with arbitrary rules, but because he created the world in such a way that it functions well when you do the things that he's told you to do. Click To TweetWhen we're looking at the world through a partisan lens, every rebuttal against the other side is driven by our politics, rather than saying I'm going to look at everything through a biblical lens.
