Does the body of Christ have a moral obligation to call for gun reform? Why does the Far Right fight the idea of critical race theory (CRT)? How will the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) affect the way people read the Bible?

These are some of the prescient listener questions that Russell and producer Ashley Hales address on this episode of The Russell Moore Show. They discuss cultural issues including abortion, political division, and how social media is influencing young people. And they share meaningful ways to consider what obedience to Christ looks like in an ever-changing world.

Questions addressed during this episode include:

  • What is the church’s role in addressing gun violence?
  • Is the Far Right’s resistance to CRT because of politics, or is the theory morally bad?
  • How should Christians vote when they agree and disagree with positions on both sides?
  • How might believers think about new developments in AI, including how it might influence the study of Scripture?
  • How can pastors be a voice for biblical change when it comes to abortion?
