A Militarized Faith

This episode sprang from a conversation Susan and I had about the impact Christian nationalism has had on the body of Christ throughout its history. The use of military jargon within institutional religion has given us a military-style pecking order of top-down authority in the body of Christ. A quote I share in this episode is a clear illustration of this where the pastor is said to be the Company Commander who gets his or her orders directly from the Commander-in-Chief (Jesus) and we're obligated to follow them without question. Seriously. Just push Play.
