Q&A Encore Episode #247- Church, State and Roe v. Wade, are Christians against everything, and more!

May 10, 2023    Kyle Toner, Blake Hardy

***Please note this episode discusses sensitive topics around women's rights, Please take care while listening***

Pastors Blake, and Kyle return as a team to discuss the following:
1. In your opinion, do you think since the 2016 election in the US they've further blurred the lines between church and state? Looking at the evangelical push if you will to abolish laws that protect human rights, how problematic is this in the grand scheme of things? If an overturning of laws like Roe V. Wade in the states can happen, doesn't this also give the ok for other countries to do the same?

2. When looking at what's happening with Women's rights in the states right now, in light of abolishing Roe v. Wade, do you feel this is now blurring the lines between church and state?

3. I struggle with being associated (as a Christian) with a movement away from love. Why is it that Christians are at the forefront of the anti-abortion movement, the anti-masking/mandate movement, the pro-nationalism movements, etc. I think I know the answer to this, but would God have really wanted this? That we as Christians are more interested in trying to control, rather than approach with love and understanding? How do I speak to other Christians that are seemingly so misguided on the (what I see to be) clear message of love from God?
