Next week marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the history of church reformation and the choices made that led directly to the freedoms we enjoy today. In modern America, we are in the midst of another reformation that brings with it a choice as well: keep our freedoms or fall victim to the new tradition of political correctness and multiculturalism.
What are the philosophical differences of Jews living in Israel versus those who live in America? Steve Kramer (www.timesofisrael.com), a retired business owner living in Tel Aviv, Israel breaks down the different sects of Judaism, how each group tends to vote, and looks at the Middle East chessboard involving Israel, Iran, and the Kurds.
Why do we believe what we believe? John Eidsmoe (www.morallaw.org), Law Professor at Faulkner University in Alabama, examines the moral basis for law and theology and looks at how our Constitution is both interpreted and used, often in ways it was never intended.
Some parts of the Bible are heavily discussed while others are ignored. Dr. Michael Heiser (www.drmsh.com), Scholar-in-Residence at Logos Bible Software, discusses the little-studied unseen world of the Bible and points out that how you read the Bible could affect your view of scripture.
John’s quote of the week:
“When Luther nailed his theses to the church door in Wittenberg he wasn’t doing anything particularly brazen. But due to the social media of the day – the movable type printing press – his ideas caught fire and resulted in his eventual stand before Emperor Charles V. And the rest is history.”
In our Section 6 intelligence brief, we air an episode from this week of Stand Up for the Truth, a podcast that featured John as a guest. He talks about the subtle form of brainwashing infiltrating the country and churches as well as the dialectic thought process and critical thinking.
