    EP281: Are you Giving to Government Anything that You Should be Giving to God? / How to Be Wonderfully Radical in This Age / The Media Killed the Waukesha Story. Why?

    On This Episode:

    DON'T RENDER TO GOVERNMENT WHAT BELONGS TO GOD (0-17ish)

    Many of us, including me, have the propensity to render under Ceasar that which is God's. I'll itemize a few things that we are tempted to give to governments that ultimately God's. Also on this, we'll discuss how there is no separate concept of "spiritual life." All of life is spiritual. Our faith goes everywhere we go -- to work, to our social media feed, in our community, into the voting booth, and absolutely everywhere.



    HOW TO BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT IN THIS AGE (17sh-33ish)

    Being kind with our words, generous with our time, and oriented toward our families would make us some of the weirdest people in the country -- in a good way. Let's talk through all of those.



     SEVERAL STORIES TO FINISH UP (33ish-end of show)

    1. The corporate media has dropped a dramatic story about mass murder in Waukesha, WI. Why?

    2. We might be close to finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. That's worthy of celebrating. It's also a story that's instructive on one of the GOOD reasons are health care system is so stupidly expensive.

    3. There's a new Covid variant. I'll talk about the reaction than the variant itself.

    4. Delaying the implementation of various v-word mandates demonstrates that the supporters and imposers of those mandates don't actually believe there's a Covid emergency.

    EP280: The Bible on Self-Defense / A Note for this Holiday Season: "Slow Down." / Homeschooling is BOOMING

    EP280: The Bible on Self-Defense / A Note for this Holiday Season: "Slow Down." / Homeschooling is BOOMING

    On this Episode:

    A WORD ON THE HOLIDAY SEASON (0:00-13ish)

    Thanksgiving and Christmas are hectic. These end-of-year holidays happen so fast, they often happen TO us -- instead of us engaging and experiencing them. I have a word of caution on that. Additionally, Advent season is right around the corner, so I have a word on week 1's theme: hope.



    ANDREW COFFEE, AHMAUD ARBERY, KYLE RITTENHOUSE, THE BIBLE AND SELF-DEFENSE (13ish-25ish)

    Several high-profile criminal course cases lately have included an element of arguing for self-defense. As is my instinct, I want to see what the Bible teaches us about self-defense, and how it applies to these cases.



    WHEN LEFTISTS ABUSE THE BIBLE, I CRINGE

    The Speaker of the House recently argued (again) that her policy preference was derived from her "christian faith." First, I was reliably informed no one can impose their values through legislation. That's "legislating morality." Second, the Speaker MANGLES Scripture terribly.



    HOMESCHOOLING IS BOOMING

    The numbers post-Covid are out. This movement will only keep growing. This topic also gave me opportunity to respond to a ghastly editorial recently that alleged teachers are like surgeons, so parents should stay out of the surgery suite. Riiiiight.

    EP279: Listener Questions / What Are We Willing to Sacrifice to LIVE The Way We SAY We Want to Live / Why Does the Media Get It Wrong in Only ONE Direction

    EP279: Listener Questions / What Are We Willing to Sacrifice to LIVE The Way We SAY We Want to Live / Why Does the Media Get It Wrong in Only ONE Direction

    On This Episode:

    A QUESTION, A CONVERSATION, AND AN ACCUSATION

    -Listener Question: Are American Church run more like governments than they should be?

    -Conversation: Is there a "the one"?

    -Accusation: "You Christians seem too happy when someone who opposes you experiences calamity."



    HYPOCRISY ABOUNDS -- ARE WE GUILTY?

    The New York Times recently published a video accusing their own (the American Left) of not living their values on housing policy, education, and taxation. They made a compelling case. It's worth considering for us too, though. Do we live the way we SAY want to live, regarding our values?



    WHY DOES THE MEDIA GETR STORIES WRONG IN ONLY ONE DIRECTION?

    I'll give examples. Getting stories wrong isn't surprising. Journalism is hard; however, our corporate media get stories wrong in only one drection (one that helps the Left).



    PEW RESEARCH POLICAL QUIZ

    I'll invite you to take a new Pew Research political ideology quiz with me. It's fun and helpful.

    EP278: More Thoughts on the V-Word Mandate / CRT is Absolutely Taught In Schools / Last Week's Election Results / A Lot More

    EP278: More Thoughts on the V-Word Mandate / CRT is Absolutely Taught In Schools / Last Week's Election Results / A Lot More

    On This Episode:

    THE ORIGIN OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT

    Recently, a podcast erroneously and slanderously alleged that the Religious Right formed through racism. I'll debunk that. However, more importantly, we'll use this as a lesson in learning to think with some nuance and admitting that a complicated world requires complicated thinking.



    V-WORD MANDATE IS ISSUED AND THEN STOPPED

    The 5th Circuit correctly stayed the federal government's unprecedented, obviously unconstitutional employer v-word mandate. I also, though, want to talk about the decision to receive the v-word because I know many are struggling through it. Some employers will mandate it even without the government's requirement. Personally, I struggle having a side in the V-Word war, but I at least want to talk through the decision.



    ELECTION ANALYSIS FROM LAST WEEK

    I'm never particularly encouraged when Republicans when elections, but it IS encouraging with destructive ideas and personalities on the Left are defeated. So, last week's elections were good news for those who want to see bad ideas repudiated. I'll provide a breakdown of some races you might have missed as well.



    CRITICAL RACE THEORY IS TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS

    After the election, many on the Left sought to gaslight parents regarding Critical Race Theory in schools. While CRT isn't taught explicitly, its tenants and consequences have made their way into instruction.

    EP277: Why Is the Country So Secular When Religious People Have Most of the Babies? / We Have a Better Story than the Psychotic "Life of Linda" / Preparing Our Minds for The Holiday Season

    EP277: Why Is the Country So Secular When Religious People Have Most of the Babies? / We Have a Better Story than the Psychotic "Life of Linda" / Preparing Our Minds for The Holiday Season

    There's a lot on this episode. We talk about the terrible "Life of Linda" campaign and how there are many other stories to tell that are more human-affirming.

    I talk about the culture in which we raise our kids and why we're losing them to secularism and its Leftism.

    I'll prepare you for all the lies you'll be told during the holiday season.

    I'll even tell you how the Left ruins Twix. It's a good episode. You should listen.

    Christians & "Let's Go Brandon" / It's Not Going Well In Our Major Cities / Remembering Reformation Day

    Christians & "Let's Go Brandon" / It's Not Going Well In Our Major Cities / Remembering Reformation Day

    On this Episode:

    CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO THE "LET'S GO BRANDON" PHENOMENON

    The Scriptures have a lot to say about the Christian's participation in the culture -- in particularly how we use our words. Let's apply that to the "Let's Go Brandon" phenomenon and a couple other items.



    LESSONS FOR TRAVEL

    I recently visited Amish country and the city of Philadelphia. There's a lot we can learn for our character from the Amish and our national heritage from Philly.



    BOOK BY A LIBERAL THAT SAYS PROGRESSIVES RUIN CITIES

    I love cities. This summer I spent time in Atlanta, Nashville, Denver, and Philadelphia. I can see the decay in our urban centers. One recent book from a liberal actually blames the Far Left.



    IT'S REFORMATION SEASON!

    Yes, it's Halloween, but it's also the time to commemorate the Protestant Reformation. I have some stories to help us do that.



    THE VIRGINIA GOVERNOR'S RACE

    Conservatives should lower expectations in this race. It's a very blue state; however, folks on the Right should be heartened that the radical policy and ideas of the Left are unpopular and making this race competitive.
