Politics and the Gospel: Public Witness in a Politically Crazy World w/ Dr. Patrick Schreiner

Politics and the Gospel: Public Witness in a Politically Crazy World w/ Dr. Patrick Schreiner

What are the two topics you aren’t supposed to discuss at family gatherings? Most of us would immediately guess religion and politics, and some of us may intentionally stay away from these topics in public. But what if we could step into the political sphere in a way that honors God? In this episode, Dr. Patrick Schreiner makes a compelling case for why we should consider engaging in politics as believers. Shelby and Krystal chat with Dr. Schreiner about how the gospel changes the way we view politics and offers practical tips on engaging in politics in a way that honors Christ as King. 

The opinions of guests on the Daily Grace podcast do not represent the opinions of The Daily Grace Co., and we do not necessarily endorse the resources that they recommend or mention on the show. We believe it is valuable to hear from a variety of guests, even if we do not agree in all areas. As always, the statements made by hosts and guests on the show should be tested against God’s Word, the only authority on truth.
