ALR254 – Why Do Churches Support Gun Control?

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.
