Jesus And John Wayne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patriarchy, authoritarian rule, the nature of power and privilege in America and the Church, the deconstruction movement, Christians in politics; in this podcast, Professor and Historian Kristin Du Mez, examines the impact of perhaps the most influential subculture in this country, white evangelicalism. This conversation explores how evangelicals have stepped away from the Jesus of the Gospels, from sacrificial love. “But what was once done, can be undone.”

QUOTES

Jesus divested Himself of power. And yet, when we look at American Evangelicalism over the last half-century and more there is a very different understanding of power at t’s heart. It is, ‘the more power the better.’ The more worldly power…political power…military power so that we can protect our truth, God’s truth, our truth, it’s the same. But it’s not that God’s truth defines ours…”

“Christians ought to be trouble makers within their parties. We should be the voices of conscience all the time, the ones who are not dependable party liners…Christians should be uniting across party differences…”

“Many (Christians) are deconstructing these cultural layers that for so long have been sold to them as orthodox Christianity, take-it-or-leave-it kinda things, and it never fit right with them.”
