    Does "He Gets Us" Get Him?

    Does "He Gets Us" Get Him?

    Once again a multimillion-dollar campaign called "He Gets Us" aired an ad during the Super Bowl.
    The ad presented a slide show of people often at political odds washing one another's feet. Well, usually it was the "conservative" washing the feet of the "liberal."
    It ended with "Jesus didn't preach hate. He washed feet."
    What does the Bible saying about foot washing?
    What does the "He Gets Us" campaign get right in the ad and its website, and what may it get wrong?
    Could a campaign focused on disarming social issues lure people into becoming disciples of Jesus?
    Sources Cited:
    He Gets Us
    "Loving your neighbor is nearly impossible. How can we do it?"
    "About Us"
    "How did Jesus step over barriers of race, gender, and stigma on the side of the road?"
    "He Gets Us has an agenda."

    The Alistair Begg Controversy: A Humble Critique

    The Alistair Begg Controversy: A Humble Critique

    When a distressed woman wrote to Scottish Pastor Alistair Begg about how to handle her son's "transgender wedding," he counseled her to attend it and bring a wedding gift--as long as her son knows that she doesn't affirm this unbiblical relationship.
    Over four months after Dr. Begg mentioned this in an interview the Christian sphere on the Internet exploded, calling him to repent. Begg doubled down that his advice was only specific to a difficult situation.
    The controversy has recently cost him radio networks and planned speaking engagements in conferences.
    While I strongly disagree with Begg's advice and pray that he will reconsider, I also advise fellow Christians not to resort to "cancel culture." As the Apostle Paul says, "Speak the truth in love."

    The Hypocrisies of Davos (WEF 2024)

    The Hypocrisies of Davos (WEF 2024)

    So, the World Economic Forum (WEF) met again at their luxurious resort in the alpines at Davos, Switzerland. Their theme was "Rebuilding trust in the future."
    In this episode we look briefly at how the WEF began and how their major agendas include promoting "stakeholder capitalism" and global cooperation in the "Fourth Industrial Revolution."
    Next, we see three hypocrisies with the messages and lifestyles of the Davos elites:
    "rebuilding trust"using "escort services"environmental footprint
    Finally, the eccentric and intelligent new president of Argentina Javier Milei crashed the party by giving attendees and viewers a warning that the West is in danger and that the WEF's agendas are a form of socialism and lead to poverty.

Diverse Topics- Good production quality

Daniel has done a great job of bringing in diverse topics from economics to theology proper to personality discussions.
I particularly appreciate the production quality and down-to-earth discussions, especially with his sweet wife.
These are podcasts that I will have my older children listen to.
There was one podcast where Daniel mentions transgenderism. So, if your children aren't old enough to understand, just be sure to listen to the podcast first.

thanks Daniel for your comments and podcast! I look forward to your future topics.
