Episode 485: The Biblical Case for Redemptive Privilege with Dominique DuBois Gilliard

Updated: Dec 3, 2021


Today, privilege has become a dirty word that is automatically associated with sinfulness, but Dominique Gilliard, author of “Subversive Witness: Scripture’s Call to Leverage Privilege,” says it doesn’t have to be. He explores the many biblical characters who used their privilege redemptively rather than selfishly, and challenges us to rethink our assumptions about who is really privileged in our society.


Also this week, a new study reveals how our preferred news source shapes our political and cultural beliefs—especially for those on the more conservative end of the spectrum. As the Supreme Court hears arguments about Mississippi’s new abortion law, Tish Harrison Warren says we need to rethink our definition of feminism to include women who are pro-life. Plus, Phil goes to an indoor waterpark, and the Japanese have an innovative new energy source.

Couldn't believe my ears, when I heard your horrible comments describing Mike Lindell. His Christian values guided him to his marketing decisions. Okay, tell us about his radical stance against censorship. Tell us that you disapprove of his election opinion. But you went too far. Butt pillows and Christian crotch stickers? Judge not. No Christian love in that segment. I expected more. He is, by the way, still advertising on Sean Hannity podcasts. "If Jesus was serious...calling Him Lord isn't enough."

Sorry, friend. Mike Lindell has lost his mind. He's using his fortune to promote lies and destabilize American democracy. He may have started well, but he's gone very, very wrong.

Heyo! Long time listener here, love the show.


...I wanted to ask about a topic that has been in the background of several shows, but has never really been expounded upon.


Here, and in several shows in the past, there has been a lot of talk about "communal responsibility and repentance" on the subject of racial reconciliation. Repenting of the sins of our whole community and most relevantly, our forefathers.

This concept has troubled me deeply.

The thing is... we (and me especially) don't have a really large sense or culture of community. I have lived in 3 states in the last 6 years, I have less than 10 people I talk to consistently.

I cannot even name all my…
