Like an addiction (to power) that we just can't break ourselves from, institutional Christianity has a habit of calling back into the dangers of getting entangled with nationalism, tribalism, and warfare.  So far in this series, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve have explored the warnings of both the biblical witness and the last two millennia of Christian history where things can go terribly wrong when Christianity is equated with a particular nation, ethnic group, or government.  But now the bigger challenge is to have the courage and honesty to look at the contemporary scene of our culture in the 21st century to see where this is a live problem, and how we can respond to it.  So in this week's episode, we'll explore some contemporary "red flags" that are worth being aware of, and talk about how to be vigilant both to the overt kinds of nationalism that explicitly hijack the language of Christianity, and those that are more subtly draping themselves in Christian-sounding garb.  Another challenging, but important conversation here on Crazy Faith Talk!
