The latest Life in Wartime podcast on the Eternity network is very much tied into the conversation we did with Greg Sheridan (although we recorded it before). I’ve noticed and more Christians seem to be getting excited about politics , and judging people, for their politics. The Sheridan conversation is one of the best things I’ve heard in a long time – I would highly recommend that you listen to what he has to say. And this one’ is I hope not too bad either!
S1-10 TITLE: Politics In Wartime
Has the COVID-19 crisis brought about a new way of relating politically, or are we likely to return to the point-scoring of the past before too long? And where is a Christian likely to throw their support?
David Robertson and Steve McAlpine look at the shape of political discourse during global crises, beginning with Winston Churchill’s encouragement to the British people during World War II.
Do we discover in it a unity based on our shared need to get through the crisis? And will it evaporate as soon as the crisis passes?
Most importantly, can Christians learn a fundamental truth about unity in politics from the word of God?
