What does the word pastor mean? | Speeches that speak truth and cause controversy | Are you in the Carmenation #Text tribe?
Carmen opens with comments about a Georgia Senate race that may be a bell-weather. A Baptist pastor from the iconic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, is running as the only Democrat in a three-way contest in the special election to fill a U.S. Senate seat left vacant when Sen. Johnny Isakason resigned at the end of last year. The special election takes place the same day as the 2020 general election and if none of the three candidates in the race get 50% of the vote, the two highest vote getters will face off in a run-off election January 5, 2021. Why make so much of a Senate race in Georgia? Because Rev. Dr. Warnock’s theology and philosophy are on the extreme left edge – which may mean we’re witnessing the full unbuckling of America’s Bible Belt. **
Matthew Hawkins is back to talk about several speeches at the RNC including Vice President Mike Pence’s and Sister Dede Byrne. They also talk about why on the Republicans are talking about abortion and how a Biden administration could be expected to erase recent pro-life policy progress.
In the second half, Carmen talks with Chris Martin from LifeWay Social about safetyism and becoming anti-fragile in our social media engagements as well as Carmen’s on air experiment with listeners texting in to acknowledge they’re part of a Carmenation tribe.
