Podcast List for The Week! 4/26/2020 Throwing Mountains into The Sea, Divorce and Remarriage, Huge National Debt is Dangerous To Liberty, The Arts, and Riotous Living

Good morning all! It has been a busy week, and while I haven't had much time to blog, I have had plenty of time to hear a few podcasts. One of them was left over from last week, but I didn't want to leave it out. Personally, I have an eclectic list usually. While I don't always agree with the people I listen to 100% of the time, I find myself agreeing with them most of the time. You know, it is fair for us to think that it won't be that way, and we should be okay with that. Perfectionists (who are flawed as well) want to make everyone else in their own image, and what can be scary is how they seek to gain governmental power to achieve their sick, twisted, and unrealistic goals. As a Christian, I of course believe in the monarchy of God, but I have no illusions that human governments are able to imitate this well (Just look at the kings in the Bible and all of human history!). While a free system of government is not perfect, and nefarious and selfish men are always seeking ways to gain a foothold, freedom lends itself to leaving options open for those who have fallen on hard times. In a governmental regime that is totalitarian, they always end up being the source of misery for all, and they leave mankind with no way out.

I'll lead off with my first video/podcast for the list, and that is the Tenth Amendment Center's video that was recently released. I think you will find this enlightening and educational!

Next I want to share with you two good podcasts from Douglas Wilson who is pastor of Christ Church in Moscow Idaho and involved in many endeavors to promote Classical Education. The first podcast deals with many things, but one issue in particular is how the government schools have altered the nature of the Arts, and how the new version they have created has mutated into something of a hideous beast.

The next plodcast deals with riotous living and how the Greek Text in the New Testament deals with it. I think you will find it interesting.

Dr. Michael Heiser is someone who has revived the Supernatural worldview of the Bible. Now I have to admit that I don't always agree with his conclusions, but he has successfully resurrected many facts that I think Christians have unintentionally buried. These next two podcasts deal with the issue of Divorce and Remarriage. Dr. Heiser has a guest on the program,  and while I am still chewing on his analysis, I think you will find it interesting. I haven't found a way to embed these podcasts, so for now I'll just post the links. There are two, one dealing with divorce and remarriage in the Old Testament, and the other in the New Testament.
