BP This Week: Christians in the Midst of the Storm

When government agencies respond to natural disasters, they rely in large part on Christian organizations to help get the job done. That’s the case with the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Our hosts point out that those who think religiously-motivated charity is no big deal and could easily be replaced are out-of-touch. It’s important because FEMA is currently deciding whether to lift a ban on giving relief funds to churches and other religious institutions affected by the storms. Does Christian conviction belong in the public square? It’s a question the Supreme Court will soon decide in the case of Masterpiece Cake Shop and its owner, Jack Phillips, who gladly serve gay customers but refuse to help put on gay weddings. This and much more on this week’s episode of BreakPoint this Week.
