Spiritual Muscle Memory

Broadcast Running Time: 01:18:14

When times of trouble come upon you and you're facing spiritual red lines, you should already have plans in place on how to deal with it. This week, we speak to two gentlemen who are facing these red lines. First up is Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), the pastor in Calgary, Alberta who defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. He describes his current situation including his arrest and goes on to compare it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland.

Next we visit with a man who has been battling religious persecution for nearly a decade. Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, Colorado, is joined by one his lawyers, Jake Warner (adflegal.org) of Alliance Defending Freedom. They recount the various legal cases Jack has endured and where they are now. Jack also describes his spiritual journey, including his decision to make plans early on as to how to handle the very situation in which he finds himself. These men created spiritual muscle memory in order to endure the hard times.

Finally this week, we welcome someone from across the Pond to analyze America's exceptionalism and the pros and cons that come with it. Joining us from France is Howard Burton (ideas-on-film.com), Founder and Creator of Ideas on Film. He compares and contrasts the perceptions of America from people abroad with those who live here. Few Americans think about their own country's exceptionalism and some even think we're far from outstanding. It's important to know your strengths and weaknesses and do so in truth.

A pastor in Calgary, Alberta defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. That pastor, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca) joins us today. He is the Founder of Street Church Ministries in Calgary. He recaps his arrest and compares it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland. He came to Canada to escape totalitarianism and he fears that we are seeing it blossom here in the West now. Judaism and Christianity are being singled out while other religions are left alone. There is a spiritual battle taking place but a lot of churches don't seem willing to go to battle. They will need to if they are to survive.

We've heard about the rise of technocracy for some time now, but the pace at which it is moving has significantly picked up.  Joining us today is the preeminent expert on technocracy, Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), who is Founder and Executive Director of Citizens for Speech and the Editor-in-Chief of technocracy.news.  He covers the alarming rise of a scientific dictatorship that has led to an unaccountable massive bureaucracy that unfairly decides your future.  It feels like a takeover.  And the first thing totalitarians do when they take over is take away your ability to communicate. That's what we're seeing right now.  The entire First Amendment is about communication in one form or another.  If we lose that, we're done as a country.

A mighty whirlwind of angst is blowing through the country and the result is a distinct division between red and blue areas.  Are we headed for a revolution or a civil war?  Is secession of certain areas around the corner?  Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com), author and free speech activist, joins us to discuss how red and blue areas are stuck in the their own echo chambers, causing the division and rising tension in this country.  The totalitarian tactics of the left are alienating people on both sides and it's only a matter of time before the division becomes irreparable.
