Religion & Spirituality Podcasts

Are we really going to let thousands of years of Western culture and civilization go up in smoke? The treasures of the past are being replaced by a plastic, consumer-driven world. A lot of us are tired of modern life—the pace, the expectations on all of us, the insane politics, the confusing religious landscape, the degrading entertainment industry, and the overwhelming mess of information available every second at our fingertips. And many of us are asking, Where did we go wrong? Can we ever get back to a simpler way of life? Who can show us any good? What’s the essence of true spirituality, and can we have it in our individual lives? What will the world be like for our grandchildren, and great-grandchildren? I’m just one guy, but I’ve got to try to face the real dangers and wonders of our world, and to speak hope into the malaise. Will you join me?

What is the mission of the Christian man? Are we to simply focus on the teaching of Bible passages, work toward personal holiness, and go about doing works of charity? Or does the Bible direct and energize us toward a greater scope of mission, to include a drive toward influencing and creating culture? And really, isn't it both, in harmony? Adam and Scott team up for a third interview, this time responding to a bit of criticism received after the last episode featuring Scott. The two men...

10 Ways to Take Dominion and Be More Traditional

Are Ya Winning, Son? Why Losing is Not a Christian Virtue (w/ Scott Tungay)

7/18/2020
We get confused about how we are supposed to live our lives as Christians, as Christian men in particular. It may seem that to seek to gain power, influence, and wealth are at odds with our religion. After all, Jesus said Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is,...

Theonomy Ain't a Bad Word: Conversation with AD Robles

4/14/2020
Theonomy! The women shriek and faint, the children hide under their covers (along with a good many grown men), the stouthearted shut the doors and draw the shades. The term conjures fears of stonings of naughty children, and austere clerics running a cowed society devoid of freedoms. But is Christian Theonomy just our version of an Islamic patriarchy like Saudi Arabia or Iran? Let's talk through it a bit - this episode features the infamous AD Robles, a man with a steel jaw and iron...

Are you ready for this fight?

2020 has begun, and things around us really are melting down as quickly as it seems. The Western world is in a tailspin, all the red warning lights are flashing from the control panel, and we only have a little time left to prepare for the shift coming.

In this episode, Adam looks over just a few...

How Could We Be Ignoring This?

12/6/2019
Western Civilization has a major problem - yes, there are many - but this one stands out like a broken, burned, and bashed thumb. We aren't reproducing. We are an anti-natal, anti-family world in 2019, and it is only getting worse. In this episode, Adam attacks head on one of the most critical issues contributing to the collapse of our civilization.

Good, critical thinking is a major piece in restoring civilization. Drop us a line here, or chip in a little dough to help pay the bills here. All the best, and for the...

Against Dispensationalism

9/22/2019
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...
