What is the Church to do about (Trump) Politics?

 

Dread? Fear? Hope? Optimism? All words people are feeling about the current presidential primaries.

But the truth is, whoever is in the White House is not the savior, nor the destroyer, of the world.

Fitch and Holsclaw talk about different options for understanding politics (the Lutheran “Two-Kingdoms” view and the “Kuyperian” view), and ask “What is the Church to do?”  And be sure to listen for all the times Fitch back-pedals from his criticisms of either the Lutheran or Calvinist views.
