Are we really going to let thousands of years of Western culture and civilization go up in smoke? The treasures of the past are being replaced by a plastic, consumer-driven world. A lot of us are tired of modern life—the pace, the expectations on all of us, the insane politics, the confusing religious landscape, the degrading entertainment industry, and the overwhelming mess of information available every second at our fingertips.
And many of us are asking, Where did we go wrong? Can we ever get back to a simpler way of life? Who can show us any good? What’s the essence of true spirituality, and can we have it in our individual lives?
What will the world be like for our grandchildren, and great-grandchildren?
I’m just one guy, but I’ve got to try to face the real dangers and wonders of our world, and to speak hope into the malaise. Will you join me?
Joy is the Fuel of Resistance
If you've never seen the several modern Star Trek series from the '80s and '90s, look up "the Borg" and then read the rest of this. Their famous line is "we are Borg, you will be assimilated, resistance is futile." Even though the producers and writers of ST are well-known progressives and atheists, they told the truth about themselves and their empty worldview. The Borg are the incarnation of the spirit of the modern world. Powerful, assimilating every culture it contacts, creating a dull, gray sameness in every place it has colonized.
But it is the realm of mind and spirit where the real tragedy lands. Those who are assimilated (am I now talking about the Borg or modernistic progressivism?) lose their ability to think for themselves. A powerful hive collective mentality takes hold. The spirit of the individual is snuffed. The Borg receive cranial implants that regulate the individual's thoughts. The progressive hive mind creates spiritual implants and slavery through the lures of satisfaction, fulfillment, and happiness if we will simply identify with the collective, praise its glories, and submit to its ends.
And in this episode, Adam brings along a traveling companion to offer our resistance. It begins a little off key, but we straightened up and flew right. Hope you enjoy it and find something rich to remember.
Jolly Warriors on Mission: Scott Tungay Returns!
What is the mission of the Christian man? Are we to simply focus on the teaching of Bible passages, work toward personal holiness, and go about doing works of charity? Or does the Bible direct and energize us toward a greater scope of mission, to include a drive toward influencing and creating culture?
And really, isn't it both, in harmony?
Adam and Scott team up for a third interview, this time responding to a bit of criticism received after the last episode featuring Scott. The two men hope you are edified and challenged by this discussion, and welcome further questions and comments here.
Why the Right Loses & Why COVID is a Fake Crisis
Adam answers a couple listener questions.
Mentioned in the show:
Tom Woods "What I Told State Legislators About Lockdowns"
"America's New Normal - Silent, Obedient Consent"
"The Strangely Unscientific Masking Of America"
Trump in the Voter's Crucible: Analysis with Michael Sebastian
What does Trump represent? How can it be that a casino playboy from New York City is the singular champion for the working class in the United States? What ought we to hope for in the re-election of Donald Trump to the presidency?
In this episode (which you should hear even well after the election is over), Michael Sebastian and Adam break down a few of the implications of Trump's rise and popularity.
The Meaning of the 2020 Election
Adam predicts the outcome of the election, but more importantly, predicts the future for everyone involved.
A must listen, even once the election is over.
Christians and Trump?
Election Day arrives again, and as Christians we are faced with a stark choice. Is the election of a President our central hope in civil affairs? What should we be focused upon? Adam has an idea.
