12 Mar Who Protects You? A Conversation about Gun Control, the Police, and the Second Amendment
Gun control, the NRA, ARs, Mass Shootings, the Second Amendment: Perhaps the most vitriolic conversation in the news today. The left and right seem emotional and extreme in their response. As Christians how do we grapple with this topic? Is there a more moderate stance to take?
In this episode, Michael Easley discusses these topics and more with Michael Mann. Towards the end of the program, Easley takes us through scripture and gives a theology of defense.
We believe this is an important conversation. If this episode moves you, like it did us, would you share it with friends or on your social media platform? We want to contribute to this conversation in a positive and measured way and believe this program is a step in that direction.
