Worldview Collisions

If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.

What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.

Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.

Referencing public schools, John has often said that if you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries, don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. Joining us today is E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder and Board President of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He discusses the futility of running for school boards, the disadvantages of vouchers and charter schools, and the need for Christian schools to operate free from any government control – including funding. And pastors need to step up, defend the truth, and back biblical education.

Yesterday we brought you part 1 of our 2-part interview with Peter Hammond (frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship in South Africa. He gave a sober evaluation, based on direct observation, of the life of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. On today's podcast, he continues with some personal interactions he had over the years with the Archbishop. He goes on to look at worldview wars, the importance of campaigning for the truth, and his optimism about the future.

It is said that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. But the lesson that history teaches is that most people don't know the lessons of history. Here this week to help us understand the mindset of progressives – a group that never seems to learn from history – is Pedro Blas Gonzalez (barry.edu), Professor of Philosophy at Barry University. He looks at why people and leaders in totalitarian societies have behaved the way they have throughout history. Understanding their motivation helps to explain the illogic and contradictions constantly bandied about by the Left today. And it helps clarify for us what the truth really is.

One lesson we can learn from history is from the people and movements surrounding the fall of Communism in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Spotlighting both Pope John Paul II and the Solidarity movement in Poland is Stephanie Slade (reaosn.com), Managing Editor at Reason Magazine. She examines how the people in Poland never gave up on freedom, even when the powers that be tried to take it from them. Eventually, they had had enough, decided they were no longer going to live that way, and together with Pope John Paul II and others, planted the seeds of destruction for Communism. It's a great history lesson for today.

John finishes up the show this week highlighting inconsistencies in history. When flip flopping narratives replace truth, the solid foundation you built your belief or your society on begins to be overshadowed by other, less important things. That's when historical truth is forgotten and mistakes that shouldn't be made are made all over again.

It hurts the brain sometimes to try and make sense of the constant contradictions of the progressive ideology. Joining us today to sort through a lot of it is Pedro Blas Gonzalez (barry.edu), Professor of Philosophy at Barry University near Miami, Florida. He dives into the progressive mindset and looks at the history of why people and leaders in totalitarian societies behave the way they do. It helps to explain the illogicity behind the contradictions we hear from the far left in today's society. It all boils down to power and the willingness to do anything and everything to get it and to keep it.

A Biden executive order on gender identity is putting Christian colleges in a predicament.  Joining us today for a Sunday extra podcast is Ryan Bangert (adflegal.org), Vice President for Legal Strategy at Alliance Defending Freedom.  The executive order would force colleges to admit a male who identifies as a female into a female dorm – something most Christian colleges would not allow.  Mr. Bangert discusses the details of the order, his client's (College of the Ozarks) case, and how regardless of the outcome, the process is the punishment.

Mike LeMay: Foundational Blocks

Can we turn around the bad times we're experiencing today or is it too late?  Either way, what does that mean for our future and for the future of the Christian Church?  Joining us today is Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  He discusses how the few foundational blocks holding up Western society are beginning to wobble and once the first one collapses, the others won't be far behind.  A public-private partnership has been created that will usher in this collapse, all while claiming they have the answers.  How will churches fare?  There will be worldly churches and there will be underground churches.  We can fight the battles of this world, but keep your heart in the Lord.  Know that while the Bible says we will lose the earthly battle, we will ultimately win the eternal war.

We hold these truths to be self-evident… Familiar words from our nation's Declaration. Dr. Paul Seaton (stmarys.edu), Professor of Philosophy at St. Mary's Seminary and University, joins us today to compare the 'we' from the Declaration's time to today's 'we.' There used to be a shared belief in the foundational principles of this country, even if you ideologically disagreed on other issues. No such commonality exists today. But the progressive's long march through the institutions has sped up recently and people are beginning to wake up and fight back. One way they're fighting back is with new institutions that uphold our foundations and teach the truth.

Jeff Kinley: Christians’ Finest Hour

Broadcast Running Time: 19:18

Whether we are entering the Great Reset or the End Times – or both – Christians need to be ready. Joining us today is Jeff Kinley (jeffkinley.com), Founder of Main Things Ministries, who discusses the gradual reawakening of America's churches following months of lockdowns and virus-related issues. Religious freedom has been threatened but some Christians are starting to push back. If we are to be salt and light to the world, we first need to return to meeting together and reading the Word. And discernment is key; it focuses us on what is important.

Culture Wars in the Westersphere

Broadcast Running Time: 01:16:24

We notice that freedoms are starting to erode in the United States, but how are the other countries in the Westersphere faring? We begin this week by looking at a couple of stories from our neighbors to the north. Joining us is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if the government doesn't approve of it. She also examines how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. Backlash is building in Canada, but is it too little too late?

We then turn our attention to Australia where John was a guest on Joshua Ferrara's podcast recently. The two discuss the importance of worldviews and the friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics. They also look at how Australia is handling political correctness and methods employed by leftists against conservatives who won't put up with the woke agenda. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.
