In this conversation, Michael and Dr. Cary discuss:
- Creeds: how they’re framed and why they matter
- The Trinity (a clear and wonderful explanation)
- The “Christian” founding of the USA
- “Christianity and water”
- Christianity, Moralism & Deism
- Where the church is headed in America
“There’s lots of tension, but if you go back to 1 Corinthians 13, it’s really about: how do you live in the same community with people you don’t see eye-to-eye with? It’s ultimately a matter of faith. Are we willing to admit that our Lord has children, our brothers and sisters in Christ, who are people that we don’t like and with whom we disagree?“
