There are plenty of reasons to be concerned about white Christian nationalism—the threat to democracy, how it harms the witness of the church, the violence that supports it exclusionary visions—but we are not helpless in the face of this dangerous ideology.
People of conscience and people of faith can resist white Christian nationalism. We can learn how to identify it. We can point it out to others who may not be aware. Most of all, we can present in our words and our lives a better way to live and love our neighbors.
In the lead up to this series, many people said they were most looking forward to this episode, and for good reason.

In episode 4 of “White Nation Under God” listen to my conversation with Amanda Tyler, “How Christians Can Resist White Christian Nationalism.”
How Christians Can Resist White Christian Nationalism with Amanda Tyler
White Christian Nationalists use Christianity as cover for their anti-democratic and repressive ideology. So other Christians have the responsibility and opportunity to resist this misuse of their religion and present a better way. Thankfully, some leaders are doing just that. Amanda Tyler is the Executive Director of BJC, and her organization was instrumental in creating "Christians Against Christian Nationalism" a comprehensive resource for people of faith who want to take action.
