In this episode, I talk with Matt Trewhella, a pastor in Wisconsin, about the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. Men from Matt’s church were armed and present the night of the now infamous shooting, and Matt gives some hot takes about why Kyle did the just thing. I get Matt’s response to various evangelical takes on Rittenhouse, including Doug Wilson, The Gospel Coalition, J.D. Vance, and David French. Finally, we’ll talk about why so many Christians are afraid to deal with a biblical doctrine of armed defense but why they need to.
