In this episode, Rev. Todd R. Lattig addresses head on the issue of Jesus and politics. Can they be separated? Should they be separated? Should we keep Jesus in his place and politics in its place, both separate from each other and always disconnected? Is this the Biblical approach to understanding Jesus and the message Jesus has for the world? Was this Jesus’ idea of what it meant to follow him? These questions and more are addressed in this very important episode. This Episode is based on Acts 5:17-29.
