Can we disagree well over politics from the pulpit? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 219

Can we disagree well over politics from the pulpit?

Continuing our Controversial Unity series, we are joined by Joe Dea (from BuddyWalk with Jesus) and Andrew Fouts (from Ministry Misfits) to discuss differing opinions about how politics should be handled from the pulpit! Joshua Noel and TJ (Tiberius Juan) Blackwell ask them about their stances on politics being spoken about in Church and how they may be able to reconcile with others who disagree with them on how this should be handled.


What does preaching from the pulpit mean? Can churches make political statements? Are churches a conservative force? What makes a church liberal? What is the meaning of Christian nationalism? What do you mean by religious nationalism? What is Christian theocracy? What are the core beliefs of nationalism? Should political topics be encouraged from the pulpit? Does the pulpit provide power? Should we avoid politics in Church?


In this episode, we will:

  • Discuss the importance of politics in churches
  • Define what it means to pastor people in their own contexts
  • Explain both sides of the argument around politics from the pulpit
  • Elaborate why there is so much disagreement around whether the Church should discuss politics at all

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
