It’s in the news, social media and even casual conversations — so how should Christians respond? Should we pretend like division doesn’t exist? Draw lines in the sand? Fight fire with fire?

Christian worldview expert Dr. Jeff Myers joins us again to guide us through questions and answers for some of life’s stickiest issues. Inbox: Does Eye Contact Equal Interest?
