    Ian Cron Answers Your Enneagram Questions

    Is the Enneagram compatible with Christianity? Ian Cron, author of The Road Back to You and The Story of You says “yes.” 
    On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, Cron and Moore talk about the Christian roots of the personality typing system known as the Enneagram. They discuss how helpful the Enneagram can be as a tool for spiritual formation. And they talk about the power of digging into our personal stories—false messages and all—so that we can learn how to rewrite them according to the truth, love, and kindness of God.

    Ligon Duncan Tells Me Where I'm Wrong on Infant Baptism

    Ligon Duncan Tells Me Where I'm Wrong on Infant Baptism

    Ligon Duncan and Russell Moore agree on a lot of things, but baptism isn’t one of them. While Moore comes from a believers’ baptism tradition, Duncan practices infant baptism.
    On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, Duncan answers questions about the importance of baptism and how the Christian understanding of baptism has changed over time. He shares his perspective on the mode of baptism, the efficacy of the sacraments, and the importance of commitment regardless of denomination. He describes infant and adult baptisms within his Presbyterian context and explains how baptism is a passive rite and the Lord’s Supper is an active rite.
    Listen in for great questions and a robust yet digestible discussion of one of our most dearly held Christian sacraments.

    Kristin Du Mez Tells Me How Evangelicals Fell in Love with John Wayne

    Kristin Du Mez Tells Me How Evangelicals Fell in Love with John Wayne

    When the Access Hollywood “locker room talk” tape hit the mainstream on October 7, 2016, both Russell Moore and historian Kristin Du Mez were horrified. But while Moore felt surprised by the evangelical response—or lack of response—to the video, Du Mez saw it as a predictable outcome of militant masculinity within evangelicalism. In their conversation, and in her book Jesus and John Wayne, Du Mez explains why.
    On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, Moore and Du Mez talk about the overlap of history, politics, and Christianity when it comes to understanding American evangelicalism’s relationship to gender. They also discuss the centrality of sexual purity in much of American Christianity in the past few decades and the specific devastation caused by leaders who espoused those messages and later acted as predators. They share their thoughts on the parallels between changes in the Republican party and evangelicalism over the past few years, and what it means to realize that what you once saw as a fringe group within your tribe was, in fact, more of a core than you had ever imagined.
    Listen in for an episode filled with great questions, thoughtful answers, and mutual engagement on challenging topics.

Robbie Crewfan ,

So helpful

Dr. Moore is so often a voice for loving, biblical, gospel-oriented thoughtfulness.

Thank you for this…

I am immensely thankful for Russell Moore and those who work with him for providing a space for intelligent, open and often challenging discussions. In a time where disrespect for others seems to reign, opportunities to hear thoughtful discourse about challenging topics are tremendously appreciated.

👎

The January 6 storming on the Capitol was wrong, and an affront to democracy. But equating it to 9/11 is wicked. Scores of lives were lost and hundreds of families devastated as a result. It’s an insult to the 9/11 victims to compare it to the January 6 riots.
