ON THIS EPISODE
Christians are often accused of being hypocrites. But is that fair? Though we might not like it, the most honest answer is “sometimes.”
As we see how well-known and influential Evangelical leaders are responding to the world’s most pressing issues in 2020, it’s easy to see how some are responding in a more loving manner than others. But rather than simply throwing stones at other people who seem hypocritical, it’s important to examine ourselves to see if there’s any hypocrisy that lingers in our own hearts.
In this episode, we wrestle through how to focus on loving more like Jesus, while also standing against insincere love and theological posturing we see in the Church today.
