The unexpected overturning of Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey by the Supreme Court is rightly being celebrated as a political and moral victory. But it is important to understand what this decision actually achieves. In terms of immediate effect, this decision does little to change the net number of abortions performed in the United States, but this is not a fundamentally bad thing. By acknowledging that the Constitution does not provide a fundamental right to abortion and returning the decision to the people, a new type of discourse is now possible – one where the actual underlying moral issues that cause abortion can be discussed and addressed and where new laws that were previously considered impossible can now be considered.

The scripture says that Christ preached the gospel of the kingdom. We discuss what He meant by that, and whether it matches the gospel preached in modern churches.

Whether you call them habits or rituals, we organize our lives around a repeated series of actions that we repeat on a regular basis. We go through the same steps every morning when we wake up and every night before we go to bed. We come to the table in a particular way, maybe we talk, maybe we eat in silence. Church and worship are similar, as are family devotions. Once our routines are established, our habits and rituals neatly in place, we rarely, if ever, reconsider them. But these are things that make up our lives.

In this episode, we spend time discussing and examining the nature of rituals and habits. We talk about how they are formed and why they often go unconsidered. We discuss the natural times in our lives when we might have cause to reevaluate our patterns, such as when we get married or when we have children. We also talk about the life of the church, and how a local body works together to create habits and rituals that are faithful to the worship of God but also how easy it is to carry forward traditions that did not come from scripture, but that we have never stopped to think about. Finally, we discuss how habits and rituals can replace the true knowledge of God in a person’s life and form the basis of almost all false religions.

Read this question carefully: How do you know that you know what you think you know? That’s the question that epistemology asks in a nutshell. While everyone doesn’t spend the time to stop and think about the it, anyone who claims to know anything is already living out some answer to that question. And we want to make the argument that in this day and age of confusion over practically everything – what is a boy? what is a girl? how early can I murder a baby in the womb and it be good and acceptable in the eyes of the law? – it’s important to at least think about it a little bit. You don’t need to go and read long works of philosophy, and you don’t even need to be particularly intelligent (at least one or two of us on the panel wouldn’t be able to discuss this at all if that was a prerequisite). What is required, is a willingness to read scripture and to think about what it says. No more, no less.

In this episode, we talk about epistemology from a Christian perspective. We discuss how Jesus Christ is the basis for all knowledge and how all knowledge goes back to some form of faith. We then walk through the different methods and means that men try to use to answer the question of where knowledge comes from without acknowledging God as the creator of thought and reason. We then bring the discussion back to the gospel and how this issue ties back to God’s nature and to the nature of the work that Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit are doing in the world.
