Podcast: The Resurrection of Politics

 

Mere FidelityOn the latest episode of Mere Fidelity, Derek and Matt are (in my absence) joined by Jake Meador for a discussion of the implications of the resurrection for political theology. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I am sure it is well worth the time.

You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.

    Matt’s comment on the need for Christians to appreciate that there is a fate worse than death was spooky. This was the reasoning behind the torturing heretics and the Holy Office (better to punish the flesh and save the soul). If Christians ever want to appeal to this logic, when addressing politics, this is a historical fact that can’t merely be skirted around. One must either embrace it or explain why a certain posture does not reduce to this kind of procedure. Otherwise, it seems like we’re in bad faith for completely secular reasons.
