Things in life are rarely as simple as black and white. With the Christian faith, we love to create easy binary viewpoints. It’s either this or that. Things are either good or bad. It’s one of Christianity’s biggest blind spots because life is rarely that simple. Any theology that discounts the nuance of life, is probably bad theology. This week on the show, we have activist Logan Isaac discussing faith and war. Logan is Christian soldier and Iraq veteran who is also an author, advocate, and entrepreneur that seeks to cultivate conversation and community around religion and armed service. Can a Christian be a combatant? Can we live as honest people in the eyes of both God and country? Is there something beyond the binaries we set up between Patriot and Pacifist? Join us as we break down the binaries of these often debated topics when it comes to faith and war.
