Why can't Christians enjoy a "God's Kingdom first" approach to life? Could our very democracy crumble, due merely to people’s unwillingness to listen and learn about other peoples's views, convictions and beliefs?Rev. Brandan Robertson is family of this show, author, activist and public theologian. Discussing his newest book, Filled to Be Emptied: The Path to Liberation for Privileged People, Brandan once again pulls no punches in his true desire to radically love all, taking Jesus seriously no matter what the cost. Although Rev. Brandan considers himself on the "left" (or in the "progressive camp") and speaks often against the hypocrisy of much of the evangelical right, he feels his leftest "team" gains nothing--and is even in err--when demonizing Trump voters. Brandan challenges us all to "see the face of God" in everyone. Why do we worship ideology? Can we really call ourselves followers of Christ if we do not empty ourselves and give up privileges like he did (Philippians 2)? This passage, Brandan supposes, addresses the sacrificial responsibilities a privileged follower of Christ is called to have. Hard point to argue against. Read the verse for yourself. Is anger good, while bitterness is not? Why are some evangelicals leaving evangelicalism while others stay, in support of a leader who goes against many of the very morals evangelicals have historically never budged on?
