Exposing False Thinking: Three Examples

True or False Thinking

In this episode, Adam explains how a proper understanding of God’s place as supreme in our thinking can help uproot false thinking. Buckle up for three recent examples of Adam arguing with people who hold to false ideas, some close to the truth, some far.

But the same method takes them all out. What do you think?

Good, critical thinking is a major piece in restoring civilization.

Against Dispensationalism

against dispensationalism

Last episode Adam attacked the weak foundation of Roman Catholicism, but today we go against dispensationalism. Why? Because not only is it a false doctrine, which detracts from God’s glory when preached as truth, but it undermines our mission and confidence in this world.

In fact, I hate dispensationalism. I love my brethren who hold to it, and I once did, but the false doctrine itself is a cancer. So let’s get to it.

If you disagree with me, you are welcome to come on the show to discuss, just contact me here or on twitter.

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.

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.

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,

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.
