Episode #217: Jeffrey Pugh — Send Them Back

“The truthfulness of Christian convictions can be known only as they are demonstrated through the lives of the faithful.”

Our guest this week is Dr. Jeffrey Pugh, Professor of Religion at Elon University. Jeffrey is the author of books such as The Devil’s Ink, The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to the End Times, and Religionless Christianity: Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Troubled Times. It’s his expertise on Bonhoeffer we turn to in this episode, asking him to reflect on the border crisis, how Christians are to discern when they’re in a “biblical moment” that calls for witness and resistance, the need for another Barmen-type confession.

He also gives the best answer to the “What do you want to hear God say when you arrive in heaven?” question.”

A: ”At least you didn’t fuck that up.”
