    Quantum is evolving.  As from this episode we will be largely focussing on one subject.  This week the subject is China - or the CCP - its threat to the West;China and Covid 19; the floods in China; the CCP and its military aggression; a Chinese poem; the CCP and the Church; Taiwan; Hong Kong; China and Australia; and the extraordinary story of the Chinese seeds! 
     
    We also remember Olivid De Haviland, Peter Green and consider a song with a message from Pink Floyd.    Links for this episode can be found on the Wee Flea blog - www.theweeflea.com

NayoroWalker ,

An insightful, interesting and wise take on contemporary issues from a biblical Christian viewpoint

David Robertson’s podcast is always worth listening to. He’s clear and forthright while being generous to others and humble enough to admit his mistakes. Very helpful.

Interesting analytical content

Insightful and practical consideration of contemporary issues from a Christian perspective.

Foolishness to Those Who Are Perishing

The problem with views from atheists that take a moral position regarding the content of this show is that they have no foundation for their moral outrage. Opinions are expressed with no epistemological authority. The irony is that one has to borrow from the Christian worldview that accounts for uniformity in nature, induction, logical inference and objective morality to give a opinion in the first place. Given that the Creator God, the God of the bible, is the necessary precondition for intelligibility, when an individual would reject His laws, their thinking would naturally be inconsistent such as in the comment below. However, the bible makes it clear this would be the case, it shows us that the cross is foolishness to those perishing, 1 Corinthians 1:18. Foolishness does not mean stupid, it means lacking in judgment or reasonable thinking. I would love a dialogue with someone like this in the hope that they might see the irrationality of denying the God they know exists, Romans 1:18.

The show really is excellent. The content is balanced and delivered in a measured way. It is candid, though fair and highlights some of the absurdity of secular humanism. Those who would condone the killing of babies in the womb have become futile in their thinking, that's Romans 1:21. Murder is the taking of an innocent life and those that would condone such a thing must be warned that It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the Living God, Hebrews 10:31. it is my hope that this quality journalistic endeavour will thrive. We want mothers cared for, loved, and treated with dignity, honour and compassion along with their children, within and out of the womb, it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ that will achieve this. Happy Christmas.
