If the purpose of background checks is to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people, why shouldn't we support them? Lloyd and Pastor Bennett tackle the issue logically and theologically to help you better understand the consequences of new legislation and why they are bad ideas.

Turns out, the majority of American Christians may not actually be Christians. They like their religion with a strong dose of personal opinion, politics, and a heaping helping of heresy. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett discuss the vexing question of why American Christian churches get involved in social justice issues like gun control by reviewing the results of the 2020 State of Theology Survey by Ligonier Ministries.
