In this episode, I interview Chris Staron, host of the Truce Podcast. We discuss the effect wealth inequality has on the church–how it makes wealthy people’s voices heard while others may get drowned out, how it pressures pastors and churches to cater to what wealthy people want, how it has the potential to make the church complicit in injustice, etc. We discuss what the church can do to protect against this, as well as how to think Christian-ly about those who are ultra-wealthy (especially when they do things to oppress others).
