Episode 24 - You're Friends With Trump and Biden?

As we try to make sense of the recent presidential and vice presidential debates, Christians find themselves in a morally chaotic age. Opposing voices stand on either side of a gaping chasm declaring that the other is morally bankrupt. It can be difficult to know who to listen to.

But one thing is clear: an overall sense of moral superiority is a real problem for both sides. Because we spend so much time in our own echo chambers, we begin to lose sight of the humanity of others and are quick to roundly condemn them.

In this episode, we walk to look at some key biblical passages that speak against self-righteousness and a sense of moral superiority over others. As we look to these passages, we hope they serve as a reset button that can reorient our hearts in a more spiritually direction.

It's about how you embody that view point and the manner in which you hold that discussion. Click To Tweet
