Libertarian Christians – Oxymoron or Perfect Fit? – LOF #18

The Sermon on the Mount Carl Bloch, 1890

Libertarian Christians – Oxymoron or Perfect Fit? – LOF #18

Dr. Norman Horn, founder of Libertarian Christians Institute, joins me and co-host Jackson Trigg to explore the sometimes contentious and controversial subject of libertarian Christians.

Here’s some of what Norman, Jackson and I discuss:

  • How the church I attended as a teenager used fear tactics and peer pressure to get people saved so they woudn’t have to spend eternal life burning in hell
  • What is a Christian?
  • Christian statists — from the left and the right — and why it’s not all their fault
  • How the bible portrays the State
  • Is Christian libertarianism more anarchist or minarchist?
  • The hypocrisy of right-wing Christians who claim to be “pro-life” yet are also pro-war
  • The libertarian Christian perspective on abortion
  • The phony Republican solutions that right-wing Christians stubbornly and hopelessly cling to
  • Different perspectives on the end times (do most Christians believe in the rapture?)
  • Why Norman started Libertarian Christian Institute (and some exciting new developments with LCI)
  • And much more!
