What Does a Faithful Christian Witness Look Like in a Politically Polarized Time? A Conversation With Rebecca McLaughlin, Part 3

Pastor J.D. and Rebecca McLaughlin discuss several complex questions on topics like same-sex attraction, race, and politics.

A glimpse inside this episode:

We are in the middle of a very special series of episodes for you. For the past few weeks here on Ask Me Anything, we have guest Rebecca McLaughlin joining Pastor J.D. 

Rebecca is the author of Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion. If you haven’t read this book or have it on your shelf as a reference, you’re really missing out. She also recently released 10 Questions Every Teen Should Ask (and Answer) about ChristianitySo get it for your middle or high schoolers. And lastly, her newest book that was released last week: The Secular Creed: Engaging Five Contemporary Claims.

This was originally recorded as a long-form conversation, but we’ve split it up into four question and answer segments. Today, Pastor J.D. hits Rebecca with several tough questions. Rebecca will spend a few minutes answering: How can evangelical churches be safe places for people who find themselves attracted to the same sex? And also, how do we use this racially polarized moment as an opportunity for the gospel? And lastly, what does a faithful christian witness look like in a politically polarized time?
