Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about how baptism is discussed in the church, social engineering, the pursuit of significance looked at through the life of Herbert Hoover, the need for leaders to study the liberal arts, and why belief in the doctrine of justification is the best way to not worry about the opinions of man.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about the IRS’s hiring of armed agents and the fear it is intended to instill, the need to sacrifice for future generations, the depression induced by constantly living vicariously, and what can be learned from the life of Herbert Hoover.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk spend this show answering listener questions about a single man’s place in the church and how to deal with singleness and marriage, having a right understanding of the hearts of men informed by the whole bible, and recent US Supreme Court decisions about the EPA and public prayer. They close by examining the importance of realism in life and the application of wisdom.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue discussing the Okies and the history of agriculture in California, the invention of agribusiness, what sets the Yankees apart from the rest of America and why immigrant groups are more interested in themselves than the general population, why intellectual causes always fracture, national vs global framing, the need for personal knowledge to change minds, and the migrant populations that work California farms.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about how and why the world of renters came to be, what makes land fragile or resilient, the history of land rushes and the dustbowl, who the Okies are and why their example matters, and why everyone is now a migrant.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue last week’s discussion about the overturning of Roe. They talk about the effects of the Left’s ideas on today’s children, the increased need to seek alliances with other Christians, America’s modern culture of death and its contrast with Mexico, why Satan hates children, and employing centuries-long thinking.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about the overturning of Roe: the arguments used, the division of the court on fundamental questions, other decisions that depend on similar reasoning as Roe did, legislation by court ruling, the need for good men as well as good words in governance, the reaction of the Left, and what this means for the future.
Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk talk about the real and the exaggerated dangers of living in the US, the present discussion of gun violence and gun control, the necessity of holistic thinking, looking at history “from below”, biological differences out of the agricultural revolution, and the reality of rural America.
