Over the last three episodes, we’ve learned a lot about what Christian nationalism is and the reasons many find it attractive. This episode we respond to the question we get asked the most: so what do we do? How can churches and individuals talk about Christian Nationalism and offer people an off-ramp from this destructive ideology? How can we help de-radicalize our friends, family members or neighbors?
There’s not a cookie cutter, one size fits all answer but we think the solution starts with this: empathy and engagement.
You'll hear from Kristin Du Mez, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Samuel Perry, Stephanie Rose Spaulding, and Bradley Onishi on where the Christian Nationalist movement is going and how churches and individuals can respond to it.
