Why is the church is so impotent when it comes to impacting culture? According to the Pew Research Center evangelicals make up about 70% of the US population, and yet why are we so impotent at influencing our culture for the good of our country and the glory of God? Pastor Doug Wilson joins us to discuss why pastors should be contrarians and why church worship is central for changing culture. We also discuss Pastor Wilson’s latest book Empire of Dirt (which you can find here) and Rules for Reformers (here). Lastly we tackle more Trump, Bill Maher, and why Kanye West would vote for Trump.
Thanks for another high-quality episode, guys. Keep up the good work.
If you take guest requests, maybe some day you could have Joe Rigney on to talk about baptist covenantal theology, postmillennialism and Christian political engagement. Would be great fun to hear you guys interact on the subjects.
We love Joe. Good idea. We plan on having some interactive debates as we can schedule guest. Thanks for listening. Lord bless.
Interesting commentary. I was heavily involved in the pro-privacy Initiative in Washington State last year.One thing that frankly astonished me was the lack of Participation by the church as a whole and the CREC in Particular. With an estimated 1000? adherents in Washington State , there was a sum toatal of exactly 1 actually personally involved in the campaign against the Transwave. Could you do a show on that and explain why that happened?
Scott- are you saying that there was minimal involvement from the church in the state of Washington fighting the transgendered bathroom issue? Just trying to understand you better. Thanks for the clarification.
