Ep 26: The Methodist Church is Breaking Up: An Analysis

Summary – The Methodist Church is Breaking Up: An Analysis

On this episode, we review Bonnie Kristian’s “What the Methodist Split Tells us About American Political Polarization”, which was published in Reason magazine, and explore the impending breakup of the United Methodist church, the theological, social, and political ramifications of the split, and why Christians should do a better job of trying to get along, even with other Christians that disagree with them. We look at how the church is the family of Abraham defined by faith in Jesus and the presence of the Spirit, as well as the potential threats of both the erosion of religious liberties and right-wing Christian nationalism.
