Responding to Indiana: What’s the Point of Religious Freedom?

Q Talks


In this 18-minute session from the Q Talks, Andy Crouch argues that religious freedom promotes human thriving. He describes how the common good can give us a framework for advancing one another's religious freedom and flourishing—even when we disagree.

Andy Crouch is the executive editor of Christianity Today and executive producer of This Is Our City, a documentary about Christians seeking the flourishing of their cities. He is the author of Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power and Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling.

Andy said, “we can do better than a false pluralism.” Consider ways you can further religious freedom and the common good in your community. Think about the people around you who marginalized because of their religion. Come up with some ways you could encourage and protect them, while still shining the light of Christ.
