Thank you Dr Yousef Alkhouri

The episode with Dr Yousef Alkhouri brought me to tears. Thank you Preston Sprinkle for giving Palestinian Christians a platform and a voice. Thank you Dr Alkhouri for speaking and being so honest and faithful. This is what every American Christian needs to hear and think about

RE Christian Anarchy

Your friend is right.
Remember Samuel's Warning Against Kings
…to the people who were asking for a king from him. 11 He said, “These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots. 12 And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. 15 He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants.16 He will take your male servants and female servants and the best of your young men[a] and your donkeys, and put them to his work. 17 He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. 18 And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”

Thinking Christianity

From issues of gender and sexuality to the Palestinian Israeli issue and beyond, Preston goes beyond the din of American Christianity and gives us a more rooted sense of the Christ like way. I thoroughly appreciate that he holds an orthodox view of the faith that is honest and flexible.
