Throughout the course of history few societies have achieved lasting freedom for their people. The Battle for Liberty represents that internal struggle against central control, turned outward in an analysis of the events of the day. In this show, Mike Tilden explores the broad themes of freedom and liberty in the context of current events, politics, social issues, and downright silly situations.

And let’s not forget that both Jesus Christ himself and St. Paul both gave shockingly clear instructions to pay your taxes and obey government authorities. To be sure, this is an area of study worth our time!
In this week’s episode, I’m talking with Nick Gausling, Executive Director of the Libertarian Christian Institute. During the course of our conversation we discuss these topics and much more. Take a listen to find out how expertly Nick answers my queries.
