Community or Division? - The Chalcedon Podcast - Ep. 8

This episode was recorded just after the 2020 U.S. election with a final winner still undecided, yet the climate is still as divisive as ever, and even Christians are caught up in the strife. The Bible has much to say about this because the Bible speaks to communion and community, and Rushdoony addressed the topic frequently. In this episode, Chalcedon’s leadership speaks to the crisis of our times as a nation and people divided while offering a Biblical solution.
