Matters of Life and Death
Abusive leadership: Mark Driscoll, the hermeneutic of suspicion, Sigmund Freud's chaise longue, and Paul-Timothy relationships
Today’s episode is a little hard to sum up – we begin by reflecting on the recent series of scandals around abusive church leaders, before going to discuss how contemporary culture thinks about sex and power (and in particular how they are exploited) in human relationships. And then we consider to what extent Christians should become as suspicious of our leaders and their relationships, as it seems wider society is.
