SUMMARY: Using the Sermon on the Mount as the base pastor and author Mike Erre makes the case that Christianity is a political entity. Note that there are two swear words in the podcast.
KEY QUOTE: “When people hear that Christianity is political they think that what that means is that Christianity is partisan. We’ve seen Christianity be political in the crusades, in the Constantine era of the Roman empire. And we’ve see Christianity be political in the 80’s around the abortion issue and around LGBTQ protections and rights. Everywhere we have seen Christianity be political, in that sense, it has been awful and anti-Christ in many ways. And so there is a very good skepticism about are we sure we want to say that. I want to say that Christianity isn’t partisan, but it is political.”
