Our nation and the world is reaching a level of anger, bitterness and polarization that it has never experienced. Conservatives and progressives cannot seem to agree on anything, much less have constructive dialogue in solving problems. Finger pointing, accusations and hateful rhetoric rule the day, as well as a lack of logic, rational thought and humility. But as Christians we are called to be a distinct people, above the hateful rhetoric of this world. It is easy to become overwhelmed and get dragged down into the mud these days. How do we avoid being influenced by the world of hateful rhetoric and division? As the dust settles from very intense racial protests last night, we discuss this crucial challenge. In our first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield to look at macro economics from a Christian perspective. Is the bubble about to burst?

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. 35 The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. 36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:33-37
