Event description

Description

On Thursday, October 24, 2019, we will host a debate on the Biblical View of Social Justice. It will feature Dr. Joel McDurmon and Doug Pagitt.

Perhaps the most significant issue in the last 30 years for the Protestant Church is the place of social justice in the Christian Worldview. Is "social justice" a demand of the Gospel? Is it close to the Gospel itself? Or is Christian charity a function of intra-community life rather than an imposed rule from the top down? Just what exactly are the biblical parameters for understanding justice? Do more modern understandings of socialism resemble early/biblical Christianity? Are homosexuality and environmentalism the kinds of social justice issues that demand the Christian's attention and action? Well, as you can see, it's a big topic.

As the debate rages over just how "woke" Christians should be in the name of Jesus, or whether or not this paradigm is in fact poison to the Gospel itself, might a moderated conversation between two thoughtful Christians be of help? Doug Pagitt, pastor, author and thinker at the forefront of considering social justice as a Christian Enterprise, will be in dialogue with Dr. Joel McDurmon, a theonomist whose understanding of Old Testament biblical law has great bearing on this question. Expect some agreement and some disagreement. Where the line is biblically is what is up for debate.

The event is $10 and it will be free for all high school and college students.
