205: Is It Wrong for Christians to Sue a Non-Christian or the Government?
Is there ever a set of circumstances where it is appropriate for a Christian to file a lawsuit against the government, a corporation, or a non-believing individual? In our previous episode (#204) Kenny covered the concept of Christians abstaining from suing other believers, but what about non-Christians or non-religious entities?
In response to an email from a regular listener, Kenny answers this questions by addressing the problem with our contemporary societies becoming overly litigious, but Kenny also explains that God loves justice, and that there might indeed be scenarios where a lawsuit might be the best option to bring forth justice.
