In a time of global pandemic, should Christians be buying into the sense of looming apocalypse? Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen ask, are Christians people who live in crisis?
This episode the With All Due Respect team address the burgeoning crisis and apocalypse talk that has filled audio and video streams, as well as countless social media and blog posts.
Michael and Megan suggest COVID-19 has brought out the truth in the saying, “A crisis on your part does not necessitate a panic on mine.”
Together they debate the role ‘crisis’ has in the Christian life. Then, they provoke each other to voice an opinion on Ross Douthat’s book, The Decadent Society: How We Became the Victims of Our Own Success. And they round out the show with a consideration of everyone’s current dystopian read, Station 11.
WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?
Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
