Charlottesville, White Supremacy, and We’re All Marxists Now Ep. 29

At least two people are dead and many injured in Charlottesville, Virginia after a white identitarian rally and leftist protesters clashed in the streets. Is this another example of the problem of white racism in America, or is it more than that? Is the Progressive left the only left wing cause that showed up in Charlottesville, or are all identitarian movements inherently leftist, Modernist, and fatally flawed?

Come along with Adam to ask the questions a different way, and to approach the answers with the wisdom from above. We shall not be led around by the nose by a Marxist, materialist society if we would just take hold of our heritage from above; if we would only utilize the birthright of our citizenship in the New Jerusalem, we might be able to speak prophetically to this chaotic, Marxist culture swirling around us.

The problem isn’t racism, it’s idolatry. Can we start there? Tune in for more on this frustrating topic. We must face it and come up with better answers than the world is providing.

Unusual Frankness about Race: Interview with Darrell Harrison Ep. 27

We continue our series on race, ethnicity, and Christianity in America/the West. Today’s episode is an interview with an outstanding man of faith and learning. Darrell Harrison has been there, done that, and got the t-shirt in this life. He grew up poor in the projects of Atlanta, knows what it’s like to navigate life as a minority, but his perspective on so-called “race relations” isn’t what you might expect.

Listen in for a challenging dialogue with a brother who sets his eyes on Christ, and who refuses to claim a victim status in this world.

Darrell points us all to Christ, and the liberating truth of the gospel. Check out his blog here, and spread this episode far and wide.

Worldview from Geneva: How Old School Presbys See Things Ep. 23

This show is all about going around the world of ideas. Today our stop is Geneva, Switzerland, where we find two chatty Presbyterians sitting back at the local milk bar, straightening out the world by the rulers of Scripture and the Westminster Confession of Faith.

Come along! My guests Chortles Weakly and Wresbyterian host the Presbycast, a podcast focused on whip-cracking the hides of liberals and pretenders of the Reformed faith. There will be no newfangled attempts at a church service or social justice machine here–they just want the straight up best, most biblical local churches to flourish around the world–Presbyterian churches.

Mentioned in the show:

Returning to the Ways of the Past: A Conversation with Dean Abbott Ep. 8

What does it mean to be a traditionalist? In this conversation with Dean Abbott, Adam brings a variety of urgent topics to the surface. Has evangelical church culture been feminized? Why are young men so hard to get into church?

And what about the alt-right? Should we be disheartened by the rise of these dissidents? What drives their antics? Are there Nazis hiding under your bed? And what about the Christian perspective on immigration? Dean and Adam take a shot at each of these topics, and more.

Dean is a man’s man–a husband and father, (as well as a fellow fan of Wendell Berry), he cares most about the life of the family, community, and those who work hard to build a working civilization. You can also find his recent conversation with Mark Baxter here.

Dean’s website is deanabbott.com, and you can find him on Twitter here. Thanks to him for an invigorating conversation.
