If you were going to create a society from scratch, and you wanted it to have the best laws possible, how would you go about coming up with those laws? And what role would the Law of God play in determining what those laws should be? Would you just make the Old Testament laws the law of the land? Or would you skip those Old Testament laws that you feel no longer make sense and that perhaps don’t fit in our modern world?
In this third episode focusing on the Law of God, we look in more depth at the category of the Judicial Law.and discuss what role it should play in the laws of the land.

This week President Biden delivered his State of the Union address to Congress and the nation, outlining his view of where the nation is and where he wants to lead it. And while it’s often easier to ignore what was said on the grounds that you’ll almost certainly disagree with it, we think it’s worth taking the time to think about what was actually said, what it really means, and how it is intended to shape public policy and discourse. Politicians are famous for lying to the people, but just as often, they say exactly what they are going to try to do and why. In this episode, we walk through a number of video excerpts from the President’s speech. We discuss some of the ways he attempts to influence the nation to “feel” rather than think about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we talk about his plan to fight inflation, his focus on environmental justice, as well as his efforts to get more women back into the workforce and end with his support for children seeking gender reassignment. Through all of this, our goal, as always, is to encourage Christians to see the world through the lens of scripture, to take every thought captive, and to apply God’s word to every area of life, that God might be glorified in all things.

If you are like most parents, history is one of the more intimidating subjects to teach your children. This is partly because most of us don’t know that much about history ourselves. But it’s more than that; history is so vast and deep that we’re often not sure where to start or how deep we should go. We worry about what books to read and how to avoid bias and wrong worldviews. And while we certainly can’t resolve all of these problems, our goal in this episode is to try to lay down a framework and give some tips on how to approach the subject. We discuss the joys and complexities of teaching and learning history from a Christian perspective. We talk about the importance of history, and ways to communicate that importance to our children. We also discuss how to find good books to use and how to identify and avoid bad ones. At the end of the episode, we make specific book and resource recommendations.

As Russia faces off against Ukraine, how should Christians around the world be thinking about this situation? Should we be concerned, or are we just being manipulated by the media and politicians?

It is very common to hear Christians reference Paul’s statement in Romans 6, “you are not under law but under grace” without any context or connection to the overall argument that Paul has been making throughout the book of Romans. And while there is no question that Paul’s statement is absolutely true, it is not a statement that we get to take and interpret however we want. But this is exactly how it has been commonly used, and there has been a great deal of damage and confusion both inside and outside of the church because of it. In this episode, we focus on the relationship between law and grace and try to establish a way of thinking about them both that harmonizes with the teachings of the Old and New Testament. We talk about the difference between the law as the standard of righteousness and the curse of the law, the nature of the Gospel, and how being under grace enables us to see the goodness of God’s law so that we might obey it with joy.

All around us, we see evidence of people who refuse to look at the truth. They are blinded by their passionate support for their side or their trust in the untrustworthy. Should this be surprising to Christians or should we understand, this is the normal state of the world?

While a majority of Americans believe in the right to self-defense, there are some mainstream Christian teachers, such as John Piper, who make the argument that Christians should be willing to die rather than to take an assailant’s life. This view is particularly common among missionaries, with the story of Jim Elliot being commonly held up as an example. In this episode, we talk about the problems with this view and how it can lead to (or be caused by) a fundamental misunderstanding about the gospel, and the nature of justice and mercy. We also discuss the biblical basis for the right to self defense and we talk about how wrong teaching on the issue has caused problems on the mission field and Dan discusses some firsthand experiences he has had in Nigeria.

We started the podcast one year ago, so it seemed like a good time to take a break and discuss why we started the podcast, and a little bit about ourselves. We also reflect on some favorite moments from 2021, and some predictions for the future.
