Is it appropriate to talk politics from the pulpit? Today, Keith sits down with pastor and author Chris Butler to discuss. Chris pastors a church in Chicago, cohosts the Church Politics podcast, and is a leader in the AND Campaign, which empowers Christians to practice politics faithfully. Hear Chris detail the differences between black and white churches, particularly when it comes to involving politics. He also details his experience running for Congress in Illinois and whether or not people were bothered by him being a pastor and a political candidate. Plus, why are more Black voters supporting Trump? Does the Bible talk about race? And what would he say to someone who says that there is no reason for a Christian to vote Democrat? Listen now!

The 2024 election is fast approaching and many Christians are still left wondering whose policies best represent the Bible’s teachings. Today, we’re talking to theologian and author of “The Bible and the Ballot,” Tremper Longman, to learn how Christians can vote in a way that best reflects biblical values. First, Tremper tells us why he decided to write a book on politics in the first place. How much does he believe that Christians should participate in the political process? And how much should the Church participate? Does the Bible have something to contribute to contentious political issues like abortion, immigration, and race? What are loving, biblical responses to these topics? And should Christians push for laws around such issues? Plus, how much should Christians consider a political candidate’s character over their policies? And learn why he says that Christians don’t actually “need” religious liberty. Listen now!

Thankless. Exhausting. Lonely. That’s how many Millennial women view the prospect of motherhood. And the statistics bear this out: The global fertility rate is steadily dropping. So, how did we get here? Today, Keith is joined by Vox senior reporter, Rachel Cohen, to discuss. Hear Rachel share insights from her recent article, “How Millennials Learned to Dread Motherhood,” where she explained why her generation got to this point and presented an unbiased, optimistic case for motherhood instead. Today she shares more on why she thinks there’s been such a sharp decline in children being born, how TikTok and social media influencers have contributed to this issue, and how politics may play a role. She walks through “The List” of the top reasons women cite for not having kids. Plus, what does she make of the fact that studies show that women with children report higher levels of happiness than women without? And what types of responses has she received after publishing her essay? Listen now!

How does a liberal living in one of the deepest blue counties in the country converse with her conservative, Mexican immigrant parents who voted for Donald Trump twice? We find out today when Monica Guzman joins us on the pod! Monica is on the national leadership team of Braver Angels, a “depolarization organization” designed to reduce partisan animosity, and the author of “I Never Thought of it That Way.” Hear her share her family’s story and why she’s so passionate about people learning to have difficult conversations, even in today’s dangerously divided times. But given that it’s extremely rare for people to change their minds, particularly on political issues, what should the goal of such conversations be, and how can we know if we’ve succeeded? Has our culture lost the idea of absolute truth and can we persuade anyone anymore? Plus, she shares some practical tips for having difficult conversations with people whose worldview is different from (or even opposed to) your own. Listen now!

If you grew up in the U.S., you’ve probably believed (and maybe you still do!) that advantage should be earned through ability and effort. You get ahead in this world based on your accomplishments. Right? Well, not so fast. What if this foundational American axiom is all a myth? Daniel Markovits, a professor at Yale and author of “The Meritocracy Trap,” joins Keith on the pod today to discuss. He starts by pointing out the problems with modern-day meritocracy: It feeds inequality, dismantles the middle class, and gives an unfair advantage to the elite. But what other options do we have as a country if our achievement-oriented society isn’t working? And does Markovits attribute his own successes to hard work and good choices or sheer luck? Plus, considering the claims of figures like Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and singer Oliver Anthony, does he believe that more and more Americans are “waking up” to the meritocracy myth? Listen now!

If your faith was affected by the Left Behind series, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Not really, but can we talk about how many Americans have been impacted by the teachings of dispensationalism? That’s what happens today when Daniel Hummel, author of “The Rise and Fall of Dispensationalism,” joins Keith on the pod! First, Daniel breaks down the three key components to this theological system: its view of the Church and Israel, its teaching on End Times, and its literal interpretation of Scripture. And why is it problematic? What denominations hold to dispensationalism? How did it get thrust into politics? Plus, Daniel shares why its power and influence have waned, now making it more of a marginalized tradition. But does he believe there will be a revival of dispensationalism in the future? Listen now!

What’s happening to Gen Z? Since 2010, this generation has seen a 150% increase in depression. One in four teen girls reports experiencing a major depressive disorder in the last year. 37% of college students report feeling anxious “all the time.” New research shows that social media is no longer just a correlation to this problem, but the root cause. Drawing data from Jonathan Haidt’s latest book, “The Anxious Generation,” Keith and Patrick team up on the pod to examine Gen Z’s current mental health crisis. Hear how smartphones and social media *literally* rewire a child’s developing brain and how this leads to negative outcomes such as less sleep, higher rates of major depressive disorders, loneliness, suicidal tendencies, poor education, eating disorders, and more. Plus, when is the worst time to give a boy and a girl a smartphone, and how does gender play a distinct role? Are we all, adults included, addicted to our phones? And what about parental pushbacks to withholding smartphones from children? Shouldn’t kids have a phone in case of an emergency? Listen now and learn some practical next steps you can take to protect your children from these devices that are destroying their mental health.

There’s no doubt that abortion will take center stage in this year’s election. From Roe v. Wade’s overturning to IVF controversies to Trump’s recent abortion stance to surprising state laws surrounding the issue, abortion is all over the news right now and Josh Brahm joins us this week to discuss. But he’s not the stereotypical pro-lifer. In fact, he claims that one of the main goals of his organization, Equal Rights Institute, is to “help make pro-lifers less weird” by bringing more apologetics to the movement. Hear him explain why he wasn’t surprised by conservative states passing more permissive abortion laws post-Roe. And what common ground can pro-lifers find with Trump, given his recent abortion stance? How should pro-life people feel about exceptions to abortion, like rape, incest, and the health of the mother? What are his thoughts on IVF? Josh also addresses our recent episode with Bradley Pierce and why he isn’t an abortion abolitionist. Plus, is the pro-life movement doomed to decline with religious decline? Listen now!

Today, we’re joined by Abigail Favale, a Professor of Women’s Studies and author of “Into the Deep: An Unlikely Catholic Conversion,” to hear how she went from an evangelical upbringing to postmodern feminism to a proud member of the Catholic Church. Follow along her journey as she shares with Patrick how her views developed, what she wishes she would have known before and during her deconstruction years, and how she navigated her fears. How have her views on gender and feminism changed? Why is it so important for Christians to live with, not resolve, the tension in the Bible? How did she become a Catholic? And what does she recommend we must do as the Church to support those living in deconstruction land? Listen now!

Did you know that 40% of American children are born to unmarried parents? Contrast that with the 1960s when this overall rate was less than 10%. So, why such a dramatic increase? And what impact is this having on our society? Melissa Kearney, author of the controversial book, “The Two-Parent Privilege,” joins the podcast today to weigh in. Listen as she makes a data-driven case for marriage, explaining why the two-parent model is the most advantageous family structure for children. She discusses why the number of children born into single-parent homes has risen, why cohabitation doesn’t provide the same benefits as marriage, and why she believes feminism and the institution of marriage are not at odds. Is marriage our best path forward to a more equitable future? Listen now!

Donald Trump. Christ is King. Candace Owens. Antisemitism. Buckle up! On this episode, we’re examining all sorts of current events to prove that commingling politics and faith compromises the Church’s witness. First, Keith and Patrick discuss the Trump-endorsed “God Bless the USA” Bible and how this mashup conflates our citizenship in heaven with our American citizenship. Then they bring on Daniel Darling, a former spokesman for NRB (National Religious Broadcasters), to discuss the organization’s recent guest speaker, Donald Trump. Was this move appropriate? Should Christian organizations invite politicians to speak? Are American Christians experiencing religious persecution as Trump laid out in his speech? Finally, Keith and Patrick discuss the recent Christ is King movement and whether its intent is antisemitic. They detail Candace Owens’s involvement and recent firing from The Daily Wire and whether or not there’s a historic, antisemitic strand in Christianity. How can Christians be politically involved but not allow politics to corrupt their faith and the witness of the Church? Listen now!

Sports used to unify us. But today? Politics has checked into the game. And in many ways, introducing controversial topics into the sports world has benched more frequent conversations surrounding faith. Today’s guest, Jason Romano, knows a thing or two about this after working for 17 years as a content creator and producer at ESPN. He joins Keith to discuss how today’s sports media does (and doesn’t) cover topics of faith. He shares how he lived out his faith while at ESPN and what he learned from working so closely with successful athletes.

The Gospel is more political than you may think. But how do we guard against our political ideologies turning into partisan idolatry? Today’s guest, Joshua Butler, joins Patrick to discuss further insights from his recent book, The Party Crasher: How Jesus Disrupts Politics as Usual and Redeems Our Partisan Divide. Hear him introduce four political religions, progress, responsibility, identity, and security, and explain how Christians are tempted to elevate the values found in each over the Gospel.

Pledging allegiance to the American flag. Singing the national anthem. Voting. Being patriotic. Is there a place for these things in the Christian life? Buckle up because this one will probably offend everyone in some way (including Patrick!). In this episode, we welcome Preston Sprinkle back on the podcast to discuss his newest book, “Exiles: The Church in the Shadow of Empire.” Preston dives into the history of ancient Israel and explains how they postured themselves in relation to Babylon, the empire of the day. He uses this to explain why he believes Christians must live their lives as exiles, or sojourners, in the modern-day “empire” of America. Plus, why is this mindset so offensive to many of today’s evangelicals? And what is a true, biblical political view? Listen now!

Have you noticed this trend? People spend about 90% of their time diagnosing today’s problems and only 10% focusing on (typically weak) solutions. This is true of Christians, too. Why are we more known for what we’re against rather than what we’re for? Today, Keith and Patrick dissect this trend and confess how this podcast has even taken part. They describe the key differences between living for a positive or a negative vision. They discuss the need for stronger Christian leadership and issue a unique challenge to each generation, from Boomers to Zoomers. Plus, what’s the better way: To reform our current institutions or rebuild new ones? Listen now!

Do you view your faith through the prism of politics? Or do you view politics through the prism of your faith? Today’s guest, Tim Alberta, believes that too many American evangelicals have lost their way, striving for political gains over furthering the Gospel. On this episode, he shares insights with Keith from his latest book, The Kingdom, The Power, and The Glory, which paints an expansive and troubling portrait of the American evangelical movement. Hear him explain if he believes it’s ever appropriate for Christians to speak to partisan issues and share his take on Christian nationalism.

Keith Simon and Russell Moore discusses the shift in the pro-life movement, the challenges of the post-Christian right, controversy and change in his own life, the fracturing in the church, the loss of trust in the church, the importance of repentance and a credible Christian voice, the perception of Christian nationalism in politics, and the issue of easy believism and substantive faith. In this conversation, Russell Moore discusses the challenges facing the evangelical church in America and offers insights into how to address them. He emphasizes the need to reconnect with the core teachings of Christianity and to prioritize the gospel over cultural trends. Moore also highlights the importance of humility, dependence on the Holy Spirit, and a renewed focus on the Bible. He encourages Christians to learn from their critics and to seek God's guidance in navigating the complexities of the current cultural landscape. Ultimately, Moore envisions a healthier evangelical church that is marked by a deep love for Christ and a commitment to truth. Takeaways - The pro-life movement has experienced a shift from a broad-based movement focused on human dignity and vulnerability to a more partisan issue, which has led to a loss of support in both red and blue states. - The post-Christian right has emerged as a result of cultural changes and the secularization of American society, leading to a reevaluation of traditional Christian values and the rise of controversial figures. - Controversy and change are inevitable in the church, but it is important to maintain a credible Christian voice and model repentance in order to address issues such as sexual abuse, racism, and political extremism.

In this conversation, Keith Simon interviews Julie Slattery, the president of Authentic Intimacy, about navigating issues of sexuality and faith. They discuss the silence and polarity around sexuality in both culture and the church, the spiritual aspect of sex, the differences between sex inside and outside of marriage, and the misconceptions surrounding women and men's sexuality. They also address the impact of purity culture and the need for a more holistic biblical narrative of sexuality. Overall, the conversation highlights the importance of understanding and stewarding our sexuality in a way that aligns with God's design. Takeaways - Sexuality is a challenging and rewarding field to navigate, as it involves addressing issues of confusion, brokenness, and trauma. - Sex is more than a physical act; it is a spiritual experience that requires vulnerability, acceptance, and commitment. - Cohabitation often leads to less stability in relationships compared to marriage, as it lacks the commitment and covenantal aspect of marriage. - Sexuality is not limited to married individuals; single people also have sexual desires and need to steward their sexuality in a healthy way. - Intimacy is built on safety, acceptance, and commitment, and it is essential for healthy relationships. - There are differences between men and women in how they approach and experience sexuality, but it is important to avoid generalizations and recognize individual variations. - Purity culture can have negative effects, such as blaming women for men's lust and creating shame around female sexuality. - A more holistic biblical narrative of sexuality emphasizes personal responsibility, healthy boundaries, and understanding the goodness of our sexuality.
