Fresh from his speaking engagement at the Worldview Weekend Conference in Missouri last week, John recounts in his boralogue some of the conversations he had with people he encountered on the trip. In large measure, people are nice, inquisitive and just want to live happy lives. But life must have purpose and that purpose can be found in God. So let’s help each other get to the finish line, enjoying life along the way.
Israel has weathered a barrage of rocket attacks from Gaza in the past week. Are we getting accurate information about the skirmish? Author and Captain in the Israeli Defense Forces, Dan Gordon, joins us to examine the differences in narratives from both sides and the media’s manipulation of the news. He also looks at the real reason behind the attacks.
John and Steve take a brief look at the media and discuss whether they are finally starting to be fair to the Trump administration or if they are playing defense for the Democrat Party in advance of what could be a serious FISA abuse scandal in coming weeks.
When we have a battle of worldviews, what are the nuances and tactics from both sides? Kameel Majdali (www.tan.org.au), Director of Teach All Nations, discusses the stark differences between traditional Western values and the far left progressive worldview and how Christians should engage those with whom they disagree.
Finally we welcome Michael Peroutka (www.theamericanview.com), Co-Founder of the Institute on the Constitution, who shows how there is a battle between those who honor the Biblically-based founding documents of America and those who try to tear them down and promote a socialist Utopian society.
John’s quote of the week:
“In order to achieve the utopian vision, the utopiocracy shall we say, has to know everything you’re thinking, doing, and saying because everyone has to march in lock step with its dictates. But of course for this to happen you only have to give up your freedom.”
In this week’s Extras segment, we play first an interview John gave recently on KYMS, a local radio station in north Idaho, where he discusses media narratives, government influencing churches, and the martyred church. Plus, he gives a weather forecast for the greater Laodicea area! Then we play a brief appearance John made on Brannon Howse’s program from the Worldview Weekend conference in Missouri last weekend.
