John MacArthur is Reopening Church as Protest

Jerran and Casey have been friends for over a decade, having first met in the halls of Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, AL. In addition to being theologically informed they are both committed to being politically engaged. We'll give you our interpretations of the world we see around us through the lens of our Christianity and our experience in the world.

This week we discuss the reopening of church by John MacArthur of Grace Community Church. Is this a bold defiance of tyrannical government overreach or is this a display of a fundamental misunderstanding of Christian principles? We also dive in to what will perhaps be an ongoing conversation about reparations. 

Thanks for listening. Don't forget to subscribe, share, rate and review!
