122: Reflects | Your "Apolitical" Church is Political

"Politics" is something that many people like to shy away from engaging directly in their public platforms and personas, and some elect to abstain from even discussing it with their friends and family. It's also something that churches often like to refrain from addressing in their preaching and ministries. Yet, it's in inescapable reality of living in a time and place. Furthermore, it's something that churches are necessarily affecting.  In White Evangelical American churches there is a reliable partisan voting block (94% of that demographic votes for 1 party), many receive pressure to talk about hot button culture war issues like CRT, abortion, books in schools etc., often a church's library is stocked with one-sided views on cultural issues, and it is a common view among a congregation and leadership that one of the two major American parties is immoral, or markedly more immoral than the other. This is politically forming whether pastors/leaders like to think of themselves as a "political church" or not. Wherever you locate yourself in this discussion, we hope it's edifying to you and would love to hear your feedback!  Shoutouts: Trevor: MLS Season Pass Sumplete Philip: Practicing the Way Dinner with Don AARP videos Follow Us: Website Instagram Twitter Facebook YouTube Channel Share Your Questions/Suggestions/Feedback With Us: Email: Phone: 913-703-3883 Support Us: Support the show with an individual donation on CashApp to $TheSubstancePod or become a monthly supporter at the Anchor link below! --- Support this podcast:
