Christ and Culture: Politics

This is part two of our series entitled Christ and Culture. Four men participate in an engaging discussion on the relationship of Christ to culture. Bill Dennison, Darryl Hart, Doug Wilson and Nelson Kloosterman each speak from their unique perspectives.

This series of programs strays from the typical Christ the Center format. This project is an asynchronous debate in the vein of the Four Views on… books published by InterVarsity Press. The listener should be aware that this is a debate and should not be seen as an endorsement for any particular speaker. Please be advised that in future episodes each participant will criticize the other views.

Today the participants address the subject of politics.

Dr. Hart nailed it, in my view, by noting that we should recognize that “whatever does not proceed from faith is sin” is relevant to the law-making-and-upholding.

Honestly, I listened to it and was surprised by the amount of overlap. It continues to be a fascinating conversation though.
