1. When the church is a political actor, the gospel doesn’t have the final word.
  2. Finding the balance between indifferentism and obsessiveness has never been easy, and it’s especially difficult in our environment.
  3. So what, if anything, makes us different from those who are waiting on the grassy knoll in Dallas, TX? Can we be any more sure of our belief in the resurrection?
  4. Wade and Mike sit down with Rev. Dr. Paul Lehninger of Wisconsin Lutheran College to discuss the work of author Colin Woodard. Woodard believes that there are eleven distinct nations which comprise the United States (and Canada and Northern Mexico).
  5. Wade and Mike take a look at Tom Nichols’ book The Death of Expertise: The Campaign against Established Knowledge and Why It Matters. Nichols makes the case that ignorance may be the biggest threat to a democratic republic.
  6. We cannot scan any random passage of Scripture and automatically assume the words are unconditionally addressed to us. Often, very often, they are not.
  7. A spirit of timidity and a Spirit of courage. In this episode, we conclude our reading of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Live Not By Lies. What happens when the church chooses a spirit of timidity in order to spare itself affliction? Also, the sins of the fathers and the true meaning of sanctuary.
  8. How Quickly They Forget. In this episode, we continue to read Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Live Not By Lies. What happens when the church takes the easy path of learned helplessness?
  9. Gag me with a spoon. In this episode, part two of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s essay, “Live Not by The Lies.” We consider herd mentality, our fear of standing up to unjust authority, and the secular indoctrination that infects the church.
  10. Lies Taste Like Wonder-bread. In this episode, part one of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s essay, “Live Not by The Lies.” We discuss the two kingdoms, the need for Christ alone with no additives, and the importance of having an ethos.
  11. Keep it Spiritual, Keep it Safe. In this episode, the conclusion to our discussion of Gerald Kennedy’s sermon, Communism in the Churches. Should churches mind their own business in regards to social and cultural matters? What happens when churches and Christian organizations avoid controversy in order to maintain the status quo? Does the Gospel have any power outside our churches’ walls?
