    School Boards and Spiritual Warfare

    School Boards and Spiritual Warfare

    On this week's episode I share about my recent experience speaking at a Central Bucks School Board meeting. With a packed crowd and 35 total speakers, it was a long evening. Despite my nervousness, I thought it went well. After reading my speech on the show, I discuss some unexpected things that I experienced - both good and bad. I finish the show by playing a clip of another speaker, who was a local reverend and an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. I address some of the odd arguments he made, including his twisting and abuse of the Ten Commandments.


    01:25 - Law of the Day: Luke 4:1-12 (Jesus in the Wilderness)

    09:30 - My school board meeting experience.

    Public School Awareness (Interview with Local Student)

    Public School Awareness (Interview with Local Student)

    On this week's episode I interview a student who attends Pennridge High School here in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He shares with me his experience as a Christian facing topics such as transgenderism and pronoun confusion among fellow students. He also spends a few minutes talking about the furries - students who dress and act like animals - and describes one situation in which he saw a student dog-walking another student. Finally, my guest shares his thoughts on how Christian parents should approach the topic of public schooling in today's confused culture.

    The First Amendment and Education

    The First Amendment and Education

    On this week's episode I look at the relationship between the First Amendment and Education. Does the First Amendment mean that the government cannot base its laws and policies on God's word? And how can the government be "neutral" in the classroom? To give a real-life example, I look at Policy 321 that is being proposed in the Central Bucks School District in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. That policy attempts to keep the classroom neutral. At a recent board meeting, one of the liberal board members argued that there is no such thing as neutrality within the classroom. Is that really true? And if it is, how should that cause Christians and other conservatives to think about the concept of neutrality?


    00:33 - Passage of the Day - Luke 11:14-23

    06:12 - The First Amendment and Education

    A Tale of Two Letters

    A Tale of Two Letters

    On this week's episode I look at two documents that were recently released publicly. The first one is The Frankfurt Declaration, originally published in Frankfurt, Germany earlier this year. It is a public declaration of Christian pastors and leaders on the role of the civil government, the importance of honoring the conscience, and the need to defend human rights. The second document is an Open Letter from Pastor John MacArthur to Governor Gavin Newsom regarding Governor Newsom's role as civil magistrate and his need to submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ. With that said, please join me on today's podcast as I consider the truth and importance of both of these letters.

    Positive Law

    Positive Law

    Today David Fowler, president of the Family Action Council of Tennessee, comes on to the show again to talk about the topic of the positive, or statutory, law. This is the second interview of a two-part interview on the common law. On this episode, we look at how statutory law is supposed to relate to the common law, and how modern law today deviates from that purpose. We specifically focus on the principles of marriage and parenthood.

Also, what is the role of judges and how have courts today deviated from their assigned roles? We tackle these topics, and more, on today's episode.

Good basic Bible Interpretation

Eric takes an organized approach to presenting Biblical truth and interprets the scriptures in a normative manner. There is no “ax to grind” or an agenda to present. If you are interested in good Bible teaching on specific topics- in this case government- this is a good podcast to listen to regularly.

Deeply rooted and conversational

For evangelicals who love robust church history and reformed theology, this is a fantastic podcast. I appreciate the though provoking application of the Gospel to everyday ideas and current cultural conversations.

All round great podcast for deepening theology and strengthening worldview!
