Engaging the Heart of the Young Church

Dr. Moore touches on topics relevant to college age adults. His is a valuable voice in the balance of applicability and truthfulness vital to the admonition of young Christian leaders.

Only telling half the story

Dr. Moore you rightly points to the horrible Jim Crow (Democrat dominated) south! Unfortunately this message actually dismisses the accomplishments of Martin Luther King’s work...and recognizes none of those (both black and white) who helped vanquish the Jim Crow hatred...and you also neglect to point out that the greatest racial injustice today continues to exist in Democrat run cesspools...if a minority is killed by police IT’S INTERNATIONAL NEWS...if 10 black businesses are burned down in Minneapolis by Black Lives Matter and Antifa the news is censored by Google and Facebook algorithms and national media refuses to cover it...these victims are truly the ones who are nameless and faceless...just last weekend in Chicago 49 African Americans were shot...7 dead... (and this is the norm) went to your Twitter feed: SILENCE- along with most national news outlets...Quit straining at a gnat (systematic racism) while swallowing a camel(the mass killing of minorities in Democratic strongholds) or else you are just another blind Pharisee...your words are at best empty platitudes... maybe it’s time for you to “crucify” your political affinities!

Good stuff

These interviews are brief yet insightful. Always appreciate Dr. Moore’s careful thoughts and this podcast is no exception.
