Ep. 32 Interview w/ a Christian Humanist, Dr. Bethel McGrew
Dr. Bethel McGrew joins us today to share her “origin story”. From her early days ghost writing as “Esther O’Reilly” to her PhD in Mathematics, we dig into the state of the higher education for Christians, the rise of secular voices like Jordan Peterson, Douglas Murray, and James Lindsay, and we get answers to the burning question: what is a Christian Humanist?
Ep. 31 Evil Branding: How DEI Infiltrated Corp. America w/ Brett Craig
Solomon’s Corner is joined by marketing expert and host of the Adwoke podcast, Brett Craig. Brett shares how Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has been promoted through the use of cohesive branding. We discuss the Communist roots of DEI, how it moved into the corporate world, and what we can do to stand strong.
In today’s Book Club, we will be exploring man as a poetical animal. Who was Percy Bysshe Shelley and what can we learn from his perspective on poetry? And how do our emotions play into our Christian walk?
Dr. Brian Huffling is a Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Southern Evangelical Seminary. He also serves as a Chaplain in the United States Air Force (USAF). He recently completed a research project for the USAF on National Security and UAPs. Today, we discuss the history of ufology, its impact on religious groups, and the way Christianity can take a unique approach to the phenomenon.
Today, we are joined by Baptist pastor and fellow seminarian, Andrew B. What is the purpose of the intellectual life in the Christian community and how do we serve our churches with this gift? Also, we will get Andrew’s reaction to tweets from one of of Big Eva’s leading ladies.
What do we mean by the nature of marriage? How do we define its purpose or telos? How do these questions relate to the sexual revolution and the popular theology in modern Christianity? Finally, we discuss the dangers of divorcing theology from philosophy, and why realism is the philosophy to live by.
Evangelicals have long separated themselves from their Catholic counterparts through their emphasis of autonomy. But what happens when this once-autonomous church trades one authority, Rome, for the authority of the State? Today, we unpack the impact of the Covid lockdowns on evangelical churches and their leadership.
The rise of Self-Expression has taken our culture by the throat and is silencing anyone who would disagree. How did we get here? And what influence did Cartesianism and Dialectical Materialism have on how we think of God and the church?
Today, we discuss a back-and-forth I had on Twitter with an influencer with the Babylon Bee about whether Lizzo’s flute playing was an effect of cultural Marxism in America. These ideas are explained more fully in the final chapters of our #BookClub read, The Captive Mind by Czeslaw Milosz. In these last pages, Milosz unpacks the impact Communism has on nations and Christianity. Finally, we conclude with Milosz’s testimony of his choice between a life of academic prestige under communism, or the path of truth and human dignity as a representative of those “Eternal Slaves”, whose voices we would never hear if it weren’t for the pen of Czeslaw Milosz.
The biggest conspiracy theorists are those who say there is no such thing, but how do we avoid falling into the trap of the “wacky” conspiracy theories? We do this this by learning from the survivors of Communism. There is no one better to take us on this tour of conspiracy than Czeslaw Milosz’s friend, Gamma.
