What’s Killing Evangelicalism, How Do We Fight On? The Church and Culture with Jim Harden

Jim Harden Evangelicalism

We need to diagnose what’s killing evangelicalism, and we need to ask how we fight on in a time of general confusion and weakness. Come listen to part 2 of Adam’s sit-down interview with the CEO of CompassCare, Jim Harden. Jim is a non-denominational conservative evangelical. We range across a plethora of trails in the landscape, observing and critiquing where we are, and why.

Your support of CompassCare is vital for the mission of erasing the need for abortion in Western New York. Please visit their site and donate to their cause. Hundreds of babies are being saved from abortion every year that CompassCare keeps their doors open in Rochester, and now Buffalo!

Please drop a few bucks for Adam to keep this show up and running. Thank you for all your support and listenership over the years.

But How Can You Be SURE? A Friendly Word for Roman Catholics

Word for Roman Catholics

Christians are promised “the full assurance of understanding” in Christ, “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

The Roman Catholic, however, is forced to deny full assurance of understanding, based on his embrace of an erroneous epistemology centered on the pope, rather than Christ.

When we ask the Roman Catholic “where is Christ speaking authoritatively,” he must answer uncertainly, for the Bible is an uncertain volume given his understanding of free will and revelation.

This is where the Reformed doctrine of grace and of revelation clarify and align with the teaching of the apostles, and where Roman Catholics are welcomed, enjoined, urged to inspect and correct the areas of misunderstanding that have accreted to their doctrine.

In love, respect, and brotherly spirit, here is Adam’s friendly word of challenge to his Roman Catholic brothers and sisters.

Please donate to help Adam pay the bills. This show garners between 500-1000 listens per month. Do you think there is value in these episodes, enough to help keep this content on the web perpetually? Then please drop some dollars for Adam to show your support. God bless and thanks for listening.


The Mindset of An Evangelical Alien: Crossing Sinai in Faith

Sinai Wandering Alien


As Peter named us, “o those who reside as aliens, scattered” in this age of spiritual warfare, we are those who wander as though homeless. We need wisdom and insight in how to think and to live in a pronounced downtrend in culture and civilization.

Pastor Reid Ferguson joined Adam in studio for an extended conversation ranging from the character of the Church, the meaning of work, relationships, and how we should think about trendy topics blazing throughout evangelicalism.

Hear here the thoughts of an evangelical Baptist in our series on Christian thinking in a collapsing society.

Blessings and goodness to you all,

An Interview with a Hero: Saving Lives at CompassCare



The abortion rate here in Rochester, New York, has been plummeting over the past couple decades, thanks to CompassCare.

What is CompassCare? Why don’t we ask the CEO Jim Harden? In fact, that’s what we have here in this episode: Jim’s tremendous overview of the life and practice of a Christian pregnancy crisis center. And not only is CompassCare “a” pregnancy crisis center, but it is the epicenter of the steepest drop in a local abortion rate anywhere in America.

And Jim hasAbortion rate Monroe County been the man guiding this success story, which last year saw at least 221 women who were considering abortion decide to have their babies.

Cough Up the Black Pill (Again)

Black pill

You and I have that black pill on our tongues every day. Some days we get it halfway down our throats. Spit it out.

We have work to do; we don’t have time for self-indulgent griping and complaining about the world of Babylon caving in around us.

Yes, Notre Dame burned down pretty badly. But the Church still stands… though we too are burning down. What is the Church, and what is our role?

This episode is a bit of a stream of consciousness leading to a new series on Christian action in this fallen age. Take a mental walk with Adam through these thoughts, and pardon the slurred speech, it was a late recording.

The Big Gay Hate Hoax and Other Media Fever

hate hoax jussie


This episode was previously published on February 20th at the normal podcast channels, and I never had a moment to update it here on my website.


In the past several weeks, the mass media/celebrity complex has produced at least three major rage hoaxes, culminating with the big gay hate hoax featuring Jussie Smollett.

Well, our minds are being programmed to react to these fomented “stories,” and to fall into rank with our side of the left/right paradigm. The news cycle has become a mentally violent, click-hunting charade of psychological warfare, and I don’t think the right thing is to try to avoid it. Listen to this bit of commentary from Adam, and send your feedback on Twitter, or at the website here.

Our Patreon is open if you want to help keep these 55 episodes live on the internet for all the new listeners each month.

All the best,



The True Face of Progressivism Unmasked Ep. 54

progressivism unmasked

In this episode, we hear a powerful preacher absolutely unmask the elite progressive worldview. That’s all I will say about it.

Push back against the ever-present culture by establishing rituals and habits in your own life, which engender goodness, self-control, and order.

Thanks for listening. The Citizen of New Jerusalem podcast began as a weekly show, but due to lack of financial support, is now an intermittent program. You get episodes when you get episodes! Love to all the fans who have hung on.

As long as we are able to bring in a paltry bit of cash for this show, we can continue hosting it at LibSyn, and producing new episodes on this website. If and when our regular monthly support stops, so will the show. Thank you to our regular contributors!
