Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 14, 2020
4:00 – The Biggest Lie about the Early Church
The narrative of the so-called “Great Apostasy” goes like this: just a few centuries after Christ’s death, around the time the Roman Empire converted to Christianity, the true Faith suffered a catastrophic falling-away. The simple truths of the gospel became so obscured by worldliness and pagan idolatry that Christianity required a complete reboot. Millions today profess a faith built on the assumption that the early Church quickly became broken beyond repair, requiring some new prophet or reformer to restore the pure teaching of Jesus and the apostles. This theory is popular… but it’s also fiction. Rod Bennett is here with the truth.
5:00 – What’s Missing from the Nature Debate?
Ecology calls to mind nature – trees, rivers, mountains, birds and so on. But an obvious part of nature has been left out of the environmental movement – human nature. While both nature and human nature are equally important, there is a significant obstacle threatening the acceptance of this expanded account of ecology. The Left understands the delicate harmony of the natural order and the Right understands the delicate harmony of the human moral order, but each side refuses to see the other’s argument. Benjamin Wiker joins us with a vision that allows both views to fit together.
