Description: During an interview, commentator Matt Walsh declared to Ben Shapiro, his boss over at the Daily Wire, that Christians shouldn’t quote the Scriptures during every debate and conversation they have with those of an opposing persuasion. Many Biblical Christians were incensed with his assertion. After informing Walsh of their vehement disagreements, Walsh proceeded to write a missive against them that is very reminiscent of the sorts of tactics Marxists use in an attempt to vilify their opponents – including calling many Christians Bible-Thumpers. In this episode, we examine the substance of Walsh’s assertions, answer whether or not he is right and explore why he proceeded to write this response.
Important Note: After we finished the livestream, we were informed by YouTube that the second half of the video version of the podcast has been blocked due to a copyright claim by iTV, the network that transmits Good Morning Britain. We believe this claim to be suspicious in nature, due to the fact that we are not making money from the clip and only used it for the purposes of commentary – a right reserved according to copyright law. We are disputing the block and are hoping that the video will be made available to the public soon. In the meantime, the audio version of the podcast is still available above, through the iTunes Store and through our account on SoundCloud.
Description: In this edition, we continue to examine how militant homosexuals achieved widespread acceptance of their depraved practices and how Christians can combat said tactics in order to protect their hearts and minds from such a subversive propaganda.
Description: In this edition, we will be examining a panel debate on Good Morning Britain as a microcosm of how militant LBGT groups successfully convinced the public to view sexual deviancy as normal.
Description: In this episode, I continue examining Alex O’Connor’s diatribe against Dennis Prager’s presentation on the 10 Commandments – using it as an example of how skeptics use distracting tactics so as to give the impression that they are discrediting Christianity. In particular, I ask the listener to take note of the dangerous nature of the belief, shared by O’Connor and other atheists, that morality is subjective instead of objective.
As Paul writes to Timothy, he mentions that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that during the latter times many would suffer from a conscience that is seared with a hot iron. (1 Timothy 4:1-4) Three critical questions arise:
1) What is a seared conscience?
2) How is the conscience seared?
3) What are the effects of a seared conscience? Continue reading
It was reported a few days ago that more than 50 “pillars of evangelicalism” had been invited to a private gathering at Wheaton College. When asked what the intention of the event was, Doug Birdsall, an organizer of the exclusive meeting, answered somewhat candidly:
“When you Google evangelicals, you get Trump…When people say what does it mean to be an evangelical, people don’t say evangelism or the Gospel. There’s a grotesque caricature of what it means to be an evangelical.”
Another organizer of the assemblage, Darrell Bock (director of “cultural engagement” at Dallas Theological Seminary), described the get-together using much more intentionally ambiguous terminology:
“It is an attempt to try and show how we should be thinking in such a way that our theology is what is the central concern versus our political commitments…We have some people who are going to be doing some presentations about how they see the current situation and we are going to talk about it…The concern is with the church expressing itself clearly about its theological commitment and its theological character in the midst of the environment we are in. Part of the point of the meeting is to have a conversation to see where we are and if there is agreement on how to proceed.” [Emphasis mine.] Continue reading
Lately, an increasing number of young individuals have approached me seeking Biblical advice, particularly pertaining to personal matters. I find this reassuring, not because they are seeking me out, but because of what they are implicitly communicating through the questions they ask. On the surface, these questions would seem to indicate a lack of spiritual maturity. This is attributable to the substance of the inquiries which reveal the struggles and innermost turmoil these believers are attempting to overcome. However, I take a different view. Continue reading
