Episode 535: What Does the Global Church Believe About Guns? with Morgan Lee

The U.S. midterm elections were full of surprises. The Holy Post crew asks if the political side of the pro-life movement has hit a wall, and if the Republican Party is really moving on from Donald Trump. Then, new data shows a sharp rise among evangelicals who didn't attend college and who don't attend church identifying as Republicans. What does it mean? And a new book chronicles the rise of Charlie Kirk, Candace Owens, and the rage-fueled conservative youth culture. Then, Skye talks to Christianity Today's Morgan Lee about what global Christian leaders think about guns and self-defense. Her reporting on the issue reveals a wide spectrum of beliefs, how our perspective may be more cultural than biblical, and why dysfunctional governments elevate the appeal of guns.

Can you strap on VR goggles and go to church in the metaverse? We asked the author Jay Kim of Analog Church and the pastor DJ Soto of Virtual Reality Church to argue all the wrongs and rights. Finally, an episode where Adam & Chris aren't the ones doing all the fighting! To be fair both these guys are pastors so the debate is probably more of mild-mannered discussion, but it covers some important ground about what it means to be the church, and what the future of the church might look like. VR CHURCH—PASTOR DJ SOTO DJ Soto, Bishop & Pastor or VR Church D.J. Soto began preaching in the metaverse in 2016. Originally thinking he would plant physical churches, he soon realized a new vision to plant churches in the metaverse. He is now the Bishop of Virtual Reality Church and MMO Church, which are futuristic church expressions that is intended to be radically inclusive and consistent with Christianity's long history of adapting to new forms of media.

Until recently, the Reverend Russell Moore held a leading position—president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission—in the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the country. He left the S.B.C. last year after criticizing the Church's response to scandals around sexual abuse and ongoing racism, which Moore describes as a sin. Moore, who now serves as the editor of Christianity Today, sits down with David Remnick to reflect on his connection with his faith, as well as the current state of Christianity in American politics. He has written that Christian nationalism is “liberation theology for white people,” and it is a danger to Christians—another form of secularization that makes religion an instrument. “Jesus always refused to have his gospel used as a means to an end,” he tells Remnick. “People who settle for Christianity or any other religion as politics are really making a pitiful deal.”

The dramatic social changes of the past century have left our world with a fragile sense of identity. Changes in technology and entertainment have constrained spiritual imaginations and reoriented our collective vision of the good life. These trends pave the way for charismatic leaders in politics, the marketplace, and religious communities to provide meaning through belonging to a group, especially one defined by a sense of “movement.” But “movement” thinking disincentivizes the slower work of building—be that the building of character or institutions, and the disastrous result has been on display for decades. Our hope for correcting course is found only in embracing a deeper, more rooted vision of virtue, the brevity of life, and a love for the world around us.Mike Cosper is a writer and podcast producer/senior director of podcasts at Christianity Today. In 2021 he produced and hosted The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill, a serialized podcast telling the story of a Seattle megachurch's stunning success and collapse. The podcast served as a venue to explore a variety of questions and issues that trouble the church, including character formation, gender, celebrity, and the distorting power of media.

Could your digital or online activity be interfering with your spirituality? On this episode of Flourish-Meant, we explore the concept of becoming an analog Christian with author and pastor Jay Kim. Jay Y. Kim serves as the lead pastor at WestGate Church in the Silicon Valley and on the leadership team of the ReGeneration Project. His writing has been featured in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, Missio Alliance, and Relevant Magazine.  Jay describes the importance of reconnecting with life off-screen due the increasing disconnectedness and loneliness of the human condition. He defines the journey of becoming an analog Christian as a process of discipleship while cultivating more hands-on relationships with life and others around us. Following Jesus is intended as an incarnate, human experience. Pastor Kim recounts his exploration of how digital influences affect us. He doesn't reject technology altogether but instead encourages becoming intentional about how we use it.  We discuss the following key points: Technology managing us v.s. how we manage technology How digital platforms influence our mood, self-image, thought content, attitudes, and assumptions about other people Checking whether we are aligning our minds with God's design for the person he wants us to become The benefits of digital fasts or sabbaths Creating healthy principles and boundaries with social media The addictive design of technology Detoxing when you find yourself unable to put the technology down Seeking ways to accomplish each task in an analog, human, relational way Using prayer as a monitoring system Considering the fruit of the Spirit Intentional focus on using technology for God's glory Remembering that God is not flummoxed by the digital age, but has led his people through cultural struggles throughout history Jay references Dallas Willard's book, Hearing God, in which prayer is described as an ongoing conversational relationship with God through which we partner with the Lord toward his redemptive mission. We need to ask God to continually do the work of forming us into Christlikeness so we can become people who live truly fruitful lives. Jay notes that social media isn't quite free. He underscores the reality revealed by Tristan Harris that if something is free to you, then you are the product.  Pastor Kim emphasizes the phrase, "make every effort," as repeated in 2 Peter 1, to lean the direction of our lives in alignment with the Spirit of God.

Do you ever feel pressure to stay silent to fit into your political party's talking points? Justin Giboney, attorney, ordained minister and co-founder of the AND Campaign, joins VOICES' Where Ya From? podcast to explore how bringing our full witness to our political decisions and conversations can be a way of loving our neighbors as ourselves. Guest Bio: Justin Giboney is an attorney, political strategist, and ordained minister in Atlanta, GA. He is also the Co-Founder and President of the AND Campaign, which is a coalition of urban Christians who are determined to address the sociopolitical arena with the compassion and conviction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Mr. Giboney has managed successful campaigns for elected officials in the state and referendums relating to the city's transportation and water infrastructure. He's the co-author of Compassion (&) Conviction—The AND Campaign's Guide to Faithful Civic Engagement and has written op-eds for publications such as Christianity Today and The Hill. Notes & Quotes: I'm seeing Black Christian candidates who want to run for city council in Black districts being forced to run as secular progressives. And I'm like, “I know you don't believe that.” It just really made me feel uncomfortable. Because I'm in one party or the other, do I have to deny my witness? I just thought Christians weren't having the opportunity to bring their whole witness into the conversation. if you're going to love your neighbor as yourself, then you've got to care about their wellbeing. You've got to be socially concerned about your neighbor. Politics isn't the only way to do that. But it's certainly a robust way to show that you care about your neighbor. You need to know what you believe and you need to, regardless of the circumstances, be able to speak the truth in love. The gospel is love and truth. And in many instances, these two ideologies that we're fighting over and we're somehow trying to fit ourselves into are missing one or the other. That's where AND comes from—the love and truth. It's the compassion and the conviction. It's finding a way to combine the social justice and the moral order.

In this episode, I explore the cultural engagement model of Russell Moore by describing my appreciation and concern over his approach.  Russell Moore is currently the editor in chief at Christianity Today. He was the director of Christianity Today's Public Theology Project. Before that, he was the President of Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention. He has also served as the provost and dean at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The winsomeness strategy of cultural engagement has received widespread criticism for being an insufficient strategy to meet the time. Unfortunately, the critique of the strategy has largely fell on deaf ears to the biggest advocates of the winsome paradigm. I close out this episode showing how much of the winsome witness crowd behaves like fundamentalists. Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/chasedavisAaron Renn on Tim Keller - https://themasculinist.buzzsprout.com/1330924/6548746-regarding-tim-kellerRussell Moore's Letter to the SBC Exec.

This is a framework that gives us the freedom as Jesus-followers to actively and wholeheartedly engage with politics.

We have recently seen a number of once-prominent Christian leaders—as well as a number of believers online—announce that they are “deconstructing” their faith. Sadly, this deconstruction is often succeeded by a de-conversion. They embrace the position that orthodox, biblical Christianity is outdated, boring, or repressive. My guest on today's show argues against the deconstructionist position and those who would substitute historic, biblical orthodoxy for modern heresy. His name is Trevin Wax and we discussed his latest book The Thrill of Orthodoxy. Trevin Wax is vice president of research and resource development at the North American Mission Board and a visiting professor at Cedarville University. A former missionary to Romania, Trevin is a regular columnist at The Gospel Coalition and has contributed to The Washington Post, Religion News Service, World, and Christianity Today, which named him one of 33 millennials shaping the next generation of evangelicals.

About the book: "Which news stations should I watch to be a responsible news consumer? How do I know what is true and whom I can trust? What can I do to combat all the misinformation and how it's impacting people I care about? Many Americans are agonizing over questions such as these, feeling unsure and overwhelmed in today's chaotic information environment. American life and politics are suffering from a raging knowledge crisis, and the church is no exception. In Untrustworthy, Bonnie Kristian unpacks this crisis and explores ways to combat it in our own lives, families, and church communities. Drawing from her extensive experience in journalism and her training as a theologian, Kristian explores social media, political and digital culture, online paranoia, and the press itself. She explains factors that contribute to our confusion and helps Christians pay attention to how we consume content and think about truth. Finally, she provides specific ways to take action, empowering readers to avoid succumbing to or fueling the knowledge crisis." https://www.bonniekristian.com/ Bonnie is the author of Untrustworthy: The Knowledge Crisis Breaking Our Brains, Polluting Our Politics, and Corrupting Christian Community (2022) and A Flexible Faith: Rethinking What It Means to Follow Jesus Today (2018).

Recent United States Supreme Court decisions on the questions of abortion rights and prayer in public school have suggested to many observers that the Court is following a theocratic Christian paradigm in passing its verdicts. The Christian Right's involvement in politics has been a staple of twentieth-century American society and has been championed by Billy Graham in his magazine Christianity Today, Jerry Falwell with his Moral Majority, and Pat Robertson in his presidential campaigns. At its worst, the Christian Right helped to prop up a genocidal dictator in Guatemala and at its most effective it has made significant changes to American law. How have evangelicals shaped conservatism and what can that tell us about their impact on contemporary politics?
