Do I stay Christian? (with Brian McLaren)

Christians are influencing politics against everything Christ stood for.


Many of us are wondering if we should stay Christian or break from the shackles of this religion. Adam admires Brian’s honesty in detailing the history of Christianity as “Do I Stay Christian?” explores the reason for leaving.

Brian explains in the future we should not expect Christianity to be one thing. The worst forms of Christianity will get worse and worse. As a result we should expect to see the better forms of Christianity arise.

Christians are influencing politics against everything Christ stood for. If Christians were influencing politics in the direction of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and self-control, people would be glad to have Christians involved in politics.

What are the reasons for staying? And no matter what we choose, how best do we live with the decision we make?
