This article, co-authored by Jackson W and Jim Mullins, offers a few suggestions for navigating the political riptide of what we call “political denominationalism.”

In it, Jackson Wu begins by exposing several cultural currents that affect the American political landscape yet are often overlooked. Jim & Jackson offer a lens through which we can see the underlying biblical values that shape our current discourse. No matter what camp you find yourself in, you likely find it difficult at times resisting the urge to demonize “those people” from the “other” group. We are often unable to see how “they” are affirming biblical values and seeking praiseworthy objectives.

They conclude the piece with a few tips for the church to respond to the cultural riptide that threatens to drown us in anger and tear us apart.
