Episode 394: The Cure for Jerks with Eugene Cho

Updated: Mar 11, 2020




Eugene Cho is a passionate pastor, author, and activist who has learned how to maintain his convictions without condemning those who do not share them. Sometimes that learning has come through failure, and other times it’s been discovered at a dinner table with those he disagrees with. Cho has compiled his lessons into a new book, “Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian’s Guide to Engaging Politics.” Also this week: Will the coronavirus force churches to think outside the box? A court says Christian college students must be allowed to evangelize in Chicago’s most popular park. And a poll by Christian politicians backfires spectacularly.

One thing I’ve learned from one of our Sunday services is when you talk to someone, let them speak and just listen to him/her for 55 minutes. The last 5 minutes, you take the floor. This has been effective to me, especially when I shared the gospel to one of my friends who is a bisexual. I’m glad that she said yes to accepting Jesus as her Lord and Saviour. I’m still praying that we’ll meet again so I can finally disciple her.

So, since you have a WEBSITE now, and I think you pretty clearly implied you wanted lots of mail complaining about your wrong statistics... I can't figure out where Christian got the idea that Evangelical white women are one of the largest groups seeking abortions. In this 2016 study 13% of the patients are Evangelical (compared to 24% Catholic, 17% mainline, 8% other religion, 38% no religious affiliation. And 39% of the patients were white. That doesn't add up to Evangelical whites being the largest group. https://www.guttmacher.org/report/characteristics-us-abortion-patients-2014#

Great episode! It is such challenging and beautiful vision to how to move forward in a way that is beneficial and good in the political arena.


One things that I have been thinking is how Scripture calls us to honor the ruling authorities and slander no one. I think it easy to fall victim to this when talking about either political party, and even mask it as "just calling people out". I know I have had to watch this because pretty soon I could be just slandering and not actually praying for anyone nor building them up.


Great stuff!

Having been a TSO for 3 weeks (plus 2 weeks of intensive training), I don't know much, but believe me--"additional screening" ONLY happens in the same general screening area as everything else. And yes--same gender, etc.
