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...

Theology & Race: Lutheran Views with Rev. Jonathan Fisk Ep. 28

Jonathan Fisk has been one of my favorite Christian worldview thinkers over the past five years, and I know many of you understand why I say that. His YouTube show Worldview Everlasting never takes itself too seriously, but always brings the full weight of the Christian religion: uncut, full-blooded, and cross-centered. So I knew I had to get him on the show to talk worldview; I knew we needed the Most Lutheran Man in the World® to help me navigate from theology to the Christian worldview...

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,...

Race, Privilege, & Reconciliation-A Conversation with Kaynenn Parker Ep. 26

How should Christians handle the issues surrounding ethnicity, race, and privilege in Western nations? The answers are complex and painful to trace out, but we have no choice--we must seek understanding and clarity. Kicking off our Citizen of New Jerusalem series on race, we present a lengthy conversation between two friends and fellow ministers of the gospel. Kaynenn Parker and Adam Kane belonged to the same local church for several years before Pastor Parker moved to Texas earlier this...

The One about Race Ep. 25

It's time to have a citizen's discourse on race and ethnicity. As citizens of the New Jerusalem, we have access to the wisdom that comes from above, but how do we apply it in one of the most difficult, professionally dangerous topics to broach? The racial discussion in the USA is out of control. The Progressive left has captured the terms and boundaries of the discourse, and are holding all of us hostage to their worldview. Do you feel free and unafraid to talk about race in church, at...

Romans 9: Sovereignty of God or Free Will of Man? Ep. 24

Today we switch gears from a normal Citizen episode. We present to you Adam's recent publicly moderated debate with a free-will (Arminian-type) Independent Fundamentalist Baptist concerning the doctrine of salvation. Adam took the sovereignty of God position, and Linden Overhiser, free will. The debate topic was dueling exegesis of Romans 9. Theology always underlies everything we do on this show, and theology must be straight by the rule of Scripture. Your feedback is welcomed. Thanks for...

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...

Reflections on The Benedict Option: No Political Solutions Ep. 22

Adam recently took a long road trip alone, during which he listened to the audiobook version of The Benedict Option. It was an earthquake for our host. In this episode Adam reflects on some of the strengths of the book without going into a detailed book review. Much of what Dreher presents in the book are the things Adam has been circling around in other episodes of this podcast. The idea here is that there is no political solution for the Western nations. At this point, we have gone past...

A People Robbed of Their Life and Land: Iraqi Christians in Exile - Interview with Juliana Taimoorazy Ep. 21

No people group on earth has lived in their homeland quite as long as the Assyrians of northern Iraq. This small tribe has suffered millennia of persecution, but for the entire church age have embraced Jesus Christ as their Lord. But today, through the actions of Islamic purists running amok, the Assyrians are barely hanging onto their lives and land. Many have fled to other countries, and many have died. In this rich interview with Juliana Taimoorazy, herself an Assyrian Christian from...

What's the Best Form of Gov't? Start Here Ep. 20

A listener asked Adam what's the best form of government/society. The question has to be answered by first discussing the underpinnings of goodness--how we have anything good in this world in the first place. Adam discusses two forms of grace, which together explain any form of order and survivability in a sinful world. The question actually opens up a world of discussion and variegated answers that must be handled slowly and with charity. So this episode is just a touch on the tip of the...

Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant Evangelicalism with Dr. Michael Svigel Ep. 19

If pressed, I am a catholic, orthodox, Protestant evangelical. The capitalization of each of those descriptors is intentional and important - and each of us ought to aspire to the same self description. I think history demands each Christian on earth must be those four things, and I mean the best meaning of those four things. What is the relationship between Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Evangelical churches? Do we share a common faith? May we consider one another brothers and...

I've Got a Better Label than "Conservative," I Think... Ep. 18

I think we can do better than to stick with calling ourselves conservatives. There's nothing wrong with being conservative, I just think the time has come to shift the language to a different term. I think there are ways to use terms differently so as to awaken critical questions and thinking. That's what we need to do, right? Well, come along for a listen with your old pal Adam. Always looking 500 years into the future as I live gratefully in the present...

A Bold Voice for Life & Sanity in General: Interview with Kimberly Ross Ep. 17

One of the strongest points of light in the Western world today is the pro-life movement in the United States. Kimberly Ross is representative of young Americans who cannot, who will not bow the knee to the culture of death. Writing at RedState.com and other spots around the web, Kimberly has garnered a strong following of likeminded young conservatives (and her fair share of critics). In this interview we talk transgender issues, military ethics, and a basket of other underlying issues at...

The Red Pill & Christianity: An Interview with Mark Baxter Ep. 16

The Red Pill is ground zero for men who are gathering together on the same journey... a journey of recovering Western manhood and anti-feminist thinking. Mark Baxter is one of the more successful voices in this community, and so I brought him on the show to compare notes. Do Christianity and TRP have anything in common? Where do we overlap? What can we learn from each other? In this episode we find our affinities, and also some of the differences in worldview that still need ironing out....

Too Much Comfort Kills You Ep. 15

This was a true stream of consciousness recording - when I spoke that first line or two, I had no idea where I would go. Everything you hear here was unscripted and raw stuff. Suffering produces steadfastness. Suffering produces more virtuous people. What are you doing with your suffering? Are you trying to avoid it at all costs? Are you trying to pretend it's not there? There is a better way to live with suffering, and even to pursue more of it. Yeah, I know... crazy. But listen in and...

Dissident from Denmark: Interview with Iben Thranholm Ep. 13

Not every dissident lives in a total police state. The dissent of Danish journalist Iben Thranholm is a socio-spiritual critique of secularity in the European Union. Her work centers on calling for a revival of Western civilization through a return to the traditional Christian worldview. Although she writes and speaks as nothing more threatening that a traditional Roman Catholic intellectual, she has found out that the EU's East Stratcom group has listed her as an enemy of the EuroState....

Atheism: Listener Q&A Ep. 12

End Times & Judgment Day: A Conversation with Ben Askins Ep. 10

What happens on Judgment Day? Do our works play a role in how we are rewarded, and in our experience with eternal life? What do the end times look like, and will we see Christ return? Ben Askins joins Adam for a brief but fruitful discussion on these weighty ideas. The two of them were trained up together under a tremendously gifted pastor some years back, and Adam wanted to check in with Ben to make sure he was continuing on the straight and narrow ;-) If you enjoy this podcast, please...
