Foundations-Using the Devil’s Tools to ‘Win’ for God

Apr 22, 2022

Today David uses audio clips of an interview with Jeff Shafer from a CrossPolitic podcast and excerpts from the testimony of a Christian policy expert in support of the transgender sports bill in Tennessee to demonstrate how easy it is for Christians not to understand the nature of the worldview underlying the issue they want to oppose—biological males competing in college against females—and wind up making arguments that rely on the worldview that produced the problem. “Wins” on that basis will be short-lived.

Foundations—Is Statism the Foundation for Governing in Tennessee?

Apr 15, 2022

If the God of creation is not the controlling principle for understanding and interpreting all of life, including the boundaries under which civil government can operate, then civil government itself will become the controlling principle. That is statism, and David, along with his guests, demonstrate that a statist philosophy is dominant in the Tennessee legislature.

Foundations—What is the Christian’s “Metaphysic”?

Apr 8, 2022

Last week David demystified the word “metaphysics” by giving examples in everyday life of things we do based on our metaphysic and how policy decisions are based on metaphysics. He explained the “metaphysic” underlying Judge Ketanji Brown-Jackson’s inability to define a woman. Today, David explains the foundation of a Christian’s metaphysic.

Foundations—Judge Jackson’s Foundation is Mars (Hill)

Apr 1, 2022

If we are going to build lives that matter, there are two things we must know. And Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson’s non-answer to “How do you define ‘woman’” is the perfect launching point for that discussion. If we don’t know why her answer is perfectly logical, we may not know what we need to know, particularly in the context of law, government, and politics.

Foundations- A Current Example of Restoring Foundations

Mar 25, 2022

Today, David takes excerpts from the testimony provided by Reverend Paul Becker and attorney Jeff Shafer to the Senate Judiciary committee in support of the Marital Contract Recording Act to show how the Supreme Court has tried to destroy the foundation for civil law and how the testimony of these two men begins to build toward the restoration of that foundation.

Foundations-Christians Whose Work Is Futile

Mar 18, 2022

The Apostle Paul said that the work of some Christians—even if well-intention—will be “burned up” if not done rightly in relation to the foundation for all things laid by God in Jesus Christ. Today, David explains how a lawsuit filed this week directed to “saving women’s sports” operates. It leaves hanging the fundamental worldview question that, at some point, must be asserted and argued.  

Foundations—Parental Rights: Real or SCOTUS-Created

Mar 11, 2022

For almost 100 years, lawyers have assured parents and home education families that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Pierce v. Society of Sisters is a strong precedent that will protect their God-given right to guide the nurture and education of their children. Today, David explains why that is a false hope. If you care about the future of the family, today’s episode is for you.

Foundations – The New Humanity Underlying Law Today

Mar 4, 2022

Legislation pending in the Tennessee General Assembly about use of “preferred pronouns” in public schools provides the backdrop for today’s episode and a stark contrast to last week’s episode on the image of God. David explains how it can now be said that one has a “right” to be referred to by pronouns that do not correspond to one’s sex, and what that says about the state of Christianity in America.

Foundations-Why Are You Even Relevant?

Feb 25, 2022

Law and government, to be just, depends on what we think it means to be human, because law is directed to persons and is to serve them. Thus, a wrong understanding of human identity will produce laws destructive of our humanity. Today, David talks about the ground of human identity that goes far beyond tired, vacuous evangelical cliches and philosophical mutterings about humans as “reasoning animals.” Beyond awesome is an apt description.

Exposing “Mythical” Foundations

Feb 17, 2022

Canada recently prohibited counseling based on the “myth” that persons are immutability “created” as male and female. Today David explains why Christians need not apologize for their belief in creation. Today’s alternatives to Creation ex nihilo are the same ones that have come and gone for centuries. David will explain why they are wholly inadequate—“mythical”—explanations of reality that need not be feared.
