West Pastors’ Virtual Conference 2021

Babylon, Lady Liberty, and The Fiery Furnace: Standing Firm in an Apostate World

May 18, 2021

The Church is indeed set apart from the world (1 John 5:19–20). It seems as though that separation is becoming more prevalent every day, as we live among a culture and government that is becoming increasingly hostile to our faith and confession. How are we to respond? Where do we go from here? Dr. Korey Maas (Hillsdale College) and Dr. Gregory Seltz (Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty) will lead us through a discussion on the history of the Church’s engagement with the state, what we are doing now, and what we can do moving forward.
