Should Christians talk about current events or avoid them? Pastor Allen recently visited with Eric Metaxas to offer a biblical perspective on this important topic.

“It’s not political to talk about what’s happening in the world around us. It’s called being biblical,” Pastor Allen said. “I’m not advocating for parties. I’m advocating for a biblical worldview, and I’m going to have to talk about what’s happening in the political realm to do that.”

Metaxas agreed. “No matter who I’m talking to, it seems we end up talking about the same thing,” he said. “This is what I believe is on God’s heart in America right now—this deception that we’re not supposed to be political. We’re supposed to be speaking truth everywhere, and sometimes that’s going to be controversial.”

Think about it this way: At one point, slavery was a contentious topic in the Christian Church. Some saw no problem with it—slavery had existed since the beginning of humanity. But others were awakened to its great evil and spoke boldly against it. Christians who were willing to stand against the tide of their culture led to the abolition of slavery. Similarly, many of the problems we face today are moral issues that the Church has a responsibility to address.

Listening to their conversation will help you gain perspective on our role and what’s at stake if we don’t take truth into our culture. Listen to the interview on the The Eric Metaxas Radio Show, and watch it on TBN.
