If you and I were to read through the Bible, would we find a God who is only concerned about saving souls? Or would we discover a God who’s concerned about both the spiritual and physical wellbeing of humanity? What does the Bible say about being socially active and pursuing justice? Today, Dr. Esau McCaulley shares his origin story with Rasool, and they end up in a discussion about the creation of the term “social gospel” and how that term affects how we read the Bible today.
At some point, all of us feel like we have to code-switch–to hide the real us or keep our opinions to ourselves. But unlike those of us who are simply trying to avoid an argument—maybe with a parent or friend— when it comes to issues of race and culture, code-switching is a method of survival. Today, Rasool asks Dr. Eric Mason Where Ya From, and ends up in a conversation about code switching, Biblical politics, and what it means to be woke.
