What does the Bible say about freedom of speech?  Is there anything spiritual behind online censorship?

If so, what should the Church do about it? What should YOU do about it?



In a time when tolerance is celebrated and Christians who stand on Biblical principles are ridiculed and shadowbanned, it seems like there are very few who stand up and speak truth.

Jeff Kliewer, author of Blood-Red Church: How Redemption Colors our Politics, believes that the redeemed of the Lord do, in fact, have a responsibility to stand for certain non-negotiable ethical positions in the public arena.

Christians are free to disagree on disputable matters, but when it comes to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, family, church, capitalism, and the sovereignty of this nation, redemption has colored our politics red.  Jeff Kliewer was our special guest on The Miracles & Atheists Community Call-in, a unique subset of the M&A platform where Nick and Jason take calls while live-streaming. You’ll enjoy this convicting presentation of our platform!
