One of the best ways to demonstrate the virtues of a free society where people serve others in the market is to tell the stories of those who are living out their faith through their businesses and ministries. That’s why LCI has recently launched a new podcast, Faith Ventures, as an addition to our growing network of shows, The Christians for Liberty Network.
Since its founding in 2015, the Libertarian Christian Institute has been one of the premier resources for Christians who are seeking a Christian understanding of the virtues of a free society. From solid biblical exegesis to sound theological arguments, we’ve been hard at work making the Christian case for a world where human beings can live free and flourish.
We know how important it is to talk about freedom in the context of the Christian tradition, as well as educate Christians with sound economic theory and a biblical sense of justice and virtue. This is why LCI has added Faith Ventures to its Christians for Liberty Network, a collection of podcasts, shows, and other media featuring the voices and perspectives of a diverse group of libertarian Christians.
Faith Ventures is about telling stories of Christians doing business for the glory of God. In keeping with our commitment to producing high-quality content on theology, philosophy, economics, and individual liberty, this new podcast shares the stories of Christians practicing all of these principles that promote human flourishing. These Christians show how our faith is lived out in the marketplace, and they will inspire listeners to put their faith into action in the work they do.
Whether you’re looking for thoughtful interviews and engaging conversations with top thinkers in theology, politics, business, or economics, or you are simply exploring the landscape of the principles of freedom from a Christian worldview, I think the Christians for Liberty Network will be your favorite source!
