What is causing the divisiveness in America? John is on the road for this week’s boralogue, talking to normal, everyday folks about what’s going on in our country. From oppressive taxation to inept bureaucracy, John shows that it’s not down to earth people causing the problems we face today; it’s elites in Washington fighting for the status quo that continues to keep us divided.
First amendment freedoms are under attack and those who have fallen victim are fighting back. Jeremy Dys (www.firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at First Liberty Institute, examines several court cases including a member of the military punished for displaying Bible verses, a man fired from his secular job for what he said in church, and the Kleins in Oregon who refused to bake a cake for a same sex marriage.
What does the Bible say about borders and immigration? Dr. Andy Woods (www.slbc.org), Senior Pastor of Sugarland Bible Church in Houston, Texas, examines the Tower of Babel in relation to borders and what the Bible teaches us about both compassion for immigrants and obeying the law.
Is there diversity within the Christian Church? David Leong (www.spu.edu), Professor at Seattle Pacific University discusses his book, Race and Place, about understanding why many churches remain segregated with like-minded people and the need to get out of one’s comfort zone and engage in discussion and action.
John’s quote of the week:
“Two groups of people: the establishment elites who want to see the game go back to where it was, and those of us out here who recognize that most of these elite dreams are broken and failing, as pensions are going to fail, jobs need to be created, infrastructure is crumbling, the debt grows, and it goes on and on and on.”
