On January 6, in what has been called an insurrection, coup, and an assault on our democracy, protestors stormed, vandalized, and looted the U.S. Capitol building during a joint session of Congress. Five people died during the event, or shortly afterward, including one Capitol police officer. As Americans we are appalled at what took place. As Christians we are additionally troubled because peppered throughout the crowds, for all the world to see, were crosses, signs reading “Jesus Saves”, and Christian flags. But what did this insurrection have to do with Jesus? On this episode, Ryan Lehtinen talks with Bruce Wesley and Yancey Arrington about Christian Nationalism and how followers of Jesus should respond to this movement.
