This is a podcast episode titled, I Pledge Allegiance to King Jesus: An Interview with Matthew Bates. The summary for this episode is: What do you think of when you hear “allegiance”? The Pledge of Allegiance (to the flag…)? Pledging your allegiance is dedicating your life to something. It’s not just being willing to suffer and die for a cause; it’s living it out in everything you do. Is that how you view Christianity?
