Fight the Powers: An Interview with Cody Cook

A snarky take on America as a Christian nation

Sometimes life steers you in interesting directions. Sometimes your path intersects with fascinating people with a unique take on the world. Cody Cook is an author with an intriguing voice. In his new book, Fight the Powers: What the Bible Says About the Relationship Between Spiritual Forces and Human Governments, Cook blends apologetics and biblical theology in regards to how Christians should engage in politics.

Join us for a wild ride as we talk about the problematic nature of blending Christian ethics with political ideology. One side wins and it’s not usually the right one. Fuelled by fear, Evangelicals continue to push the church further down a road of no return.

Why do Evangelicals continue to need to call America a “Christain nation”? What does declaring that over and over mean to them? It’s almost as if it’s a mantra like they are trying to convince themselves that their bad behavior is somehow justified. If God is on their side, then who can oppose them. It’s just another excuse that leads them further and further from a faith that resembles Jesus.

Gain the world, but lose your soul? Join us as we delve into this with Cody Cook. It’s a fun and wild ride so buckle up.
