    Chelsea and I conclude our series on Thanksgiving by cherishing the value of life.

    First, we briefly mention our miscarriage.
    Then, we explain the political push for the abortion pill and how the regimen works.
    Next, we discuss the growing success of the abortion pill reversal and how Internet search engines are blocking advertising.
    Finally, we talk about our life-affirming women's health clinic.

    Thankful for Precious Life: The Story of our Son

    Thankful for Precious Life: The Story of our Son

    Chelsea and I continue our series on Thanksgiving by recognizing how precious life really is and how society wants to make it disposable.
    We tell the gripping story of our second son's battle for life. Doctors advised us to get an abortion for false pretenses. Our son struggled to survive his birth. Over the years he underwent heart surgeries and intestinal surgeries. Yet, the hand of God was in his life to prove life is worth the fight.
    We pray his miraculous story will encourage you to trust God and put life in His hands.
    The names have been redacted to protect the innocent.

    Thanksgiving: Then and Now

    Thanksgiving: Then and Now

    Chelsea and I give a brief overview of the first Thanksgiving celebration in 1621. We look at how the pilgrims sacrificed their lives for religious freedom. Their example of thanking God in tough times should inspire us to be thankful for what we have, even when we don't think we have much.
    We also compare what the pilgrims and the Wampanoag natives likely ate at the three days of feasting with the Thanksgiving Day staples we enjoy today.
    We close this episode with another round of Thanksgiving "dad jokes."

    Unicode vs. the Jehovah's Witnesses: Evidence that Jesus Died on a Cross

    Unicode vs. the Jehovah's Witnesses: Evidence that Jesus Died on a Cross

    On my drive to work Tuesday morning I relay some evidence that Jesus died on a cross structure. Jehovah's Witnesses claim that Jesus died only on a pole with no cross beam.
    My brother John and I were recently https://life-truth.com/discussing-jehovahs-witnesses-with-daniel-and-john-mynyk-345/ (interviewed) on https://life-truth.com/topics/quest-for-truth/ (The Quest For Truth) with Keith Heltsley to talk about our recent book https://www.amazon.com/When-Watchtower-Knocks-Discussing-Encounter-ebook/dp/B099N1T7M7 (When the Watchtower Knocks: Discussing an Encounter With Jehovah's Witnesses). I am giving much of the same information about the cross as I presented in the interview.
    What I mention extra in this episode is the unicode character set on many computers! Certain Coptic characters tell us Jesus died on a cross, not just a "torture stake."

    More Is Less, More or Less?: Biden's Plan To Fight Inflation With More Inflation

    More Is Less, More or Less?: Biden's Plan To Fight Inflation With More Inflation

    During my drive to work I give my thoughts from reading a PBS article about President Biden's "Build Back Better" bill. Although he expressed concern about inflation he claimed the new $1.2-trillion bill would help fight inflation.
    We've heard the statement "less is more." Biden seems to be claiming "more is less" as yet more irresponsible theft and spending is supposed to lessen the effects of previous theft and spending.
    The Bible gives examples that shed light on the upside-down wisdom of the world.

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.

Challenging

Daniel has me thinking and examining myself to make sure I’m in the faith. He brings me up before the True and Living God when looking at the Trinity and from there down to my knees when I see myself before a Holy God!

Great information about the Bible, Church History, and recent politics

Both my son and I enjoy listening to these podcasts on Mondays and learning more about subjects such as the trinity, incarnation, etc.
