The Way Home: Rhyne Putman on the arguments Christians should and shouldn’t be having online

What kinds of issues should Christians be debating and discussing? Is there a difference between biblical discernment and the kind of tabloid-style gotcha approach favored by some? Rhyne Putman, associate professor of theology at New Orleans Theological Seminary, joins me on The Way Home podcast to offer some helpful guidelines on discerning between core doctrines we should defend and secondary and tertiary matters we should hold more loosely. Putman also offers a way to have these debates in public in a civil way. His new book, When Doctrine Divides the People of God is available now.
