This week we answer the question “what does it mean to be a Christian who is an American?” What does the Bible say? Not a podcast or talk radio or Facebook or the so-called conservative media or even a “Christian” politician. What does Jesus say, and how did his followers in the 1st century understand the intersection of faith and politics – citizenship on earth and citizenship in heaven?
To begin, we’ll explore what is perhaps the most familiar“ political” story in the Bible. Read Matthew 22:15-22 as you prepare to join your GCC family for worship this weekend.
