How did the founding of America contribute to the post-Christian world we live in today? Is there something inherently post-Christian baked into the pie from the founding of the nation?
In this episode of Post-Christianity?, Andrew Wilson and Glen Scrivener continue their discussion of how the year 1776 has shaped our world. They trace the story forward to today as they discuss slavery, human rights, the civil rights movement, and the sexual revolution. They talk about the apparent inevitability of progress in the 19th century and how those hopes were dashed by two world wars.
Wilson and Scrivener consider how these huge cultural and societal changes interact with the gospel, and they conclude by discussing the extent to which Christianity cannot be forced into the neat political categories of right and left, liberal and conservative.
