- This essay by Dr. Sharon James is both beautifully articulated and distressingly on point. She writes: "Politicians debate increasing police funding. Newspapers argue about law enforcement. There is a place for that. But the root of the problem was described in a book aptly titled Death in the City, written nearly fifty years ago by the apologist Francis Schaeffer. In a culture that has deliberately turned away from God, what basis is there for morality?" This question is of profound significance. Not just because it must be asked for the sake of society, but also because there are some who instead of answering the question, are simply advocating for us to move on from the entire concept of morality. Such is the case of Dr. Ronnie de Sousa's essay for Aeon, "Forget morality", wherein he argues that that the entire question of morality aka differentiating between what is right and what is wrong, is a pointless question for the postmodern man. As I have said, in Post-modern / Post-Christian society, even the things that were once held in agreement by all people are no longer so. Thus it is necessary for those who are Followers of the Way of the Christ, to familiarize themselves with ideas like those in this essay.Death in the City | TabletalkIn a culture that has deliberately turned away from God, what basis is there for morality?tabletalkmagazine.com

- A good listen on biblical objective truth and worldly subjective truth taken on blind faith without reason just to please the ego.
- Romans 10:1-3 ¶ Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. objective truth vs those with zeal for God with misguided subjective desire/knowledge/thinking etc… both a rock of salvation and a stumbling stone.

- True science explores the "How" of Creation, not the "Why". Thus, AW Tozer once said that Christians should be the most Critical of all Thinkers, because if the Bible is true then they have nothing to lose in the face of scientific discovery and thus no bias to protect. Conversely, those whose beliefs are not founded upon such a stable bedrock, have much to gain or lose, depending on what scientists discover. Here is another example of this kind of Protectionism that can be seen in Mainstream Media's coverage of science.Good News About The Great Barrier Reef Is No News for the Mainstream Media - Climate RealismA recent report citing reef population data from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) shows corals on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) have significantly expanded in number despite repeated bleaching events over the past decade.

You might think that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had a lot to do with it, and they did, but the whole story actually started hundreds of years ago. Men like Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton made observations about the universe and had to stand up to powerful people. In doing so, they ushered in a revolution—the Scientific Revolution—that would change the world. Click here for More TBH Historywww.prageru.com
- Fearing nothing of this world is a ridiculous concept to some (including myself at times). What is ridiculous (that’s been an ongoing lesson for me) is putting my hope into something that is seen (Hope from Romans 8). So, I read, comprehend, analyze, do the math, observe, think critically, etc and see. 👀. I’ve found it’s been ok to be cautious of what I see, but when I’m consumed in fear from what I see, I had lost/forgot my hope and began to doubt. Hope in western and secular concepts comes with doubt (ie, “I hope this works.”) Hope in faith from what we can’t see comes from promise/covenant by God. Hebrews 11:1 ¶ Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. When the Lord is my light and strength… whom should I fear in this world?
