The Theology Pugcast: Fighting Back: Protestant Resistance Theory
In today’s show Glenn provides an introduction to Protestant Resistance Theory. You may have wondered, are Christians the doormats of human history? Do we always turn the other cheek? Do you ever run out of cheeks? Is punching back ever justified, not just in self-defense, but in armed resistance against tyranny?
Well, you’re not the first person to wonder. Glenn provides an overview of how Christians in general, and Protestants in particular, have come to say, “Enough! Now I’m fighting back!”
Naturally, Tom and Chris have things to share–and you may have guessed, they agree that there is a time to fight back.
