Podcast: On the Objective – Econ Update – Steven Menking – 04.06.2020

04.06.2020

Steven returns for another economic update to discuss the psychological dynamics of the current pandemic and how the markets are not at this time expecting the apocalyptic scenarios that have been laid out. While the death projections continue to fall, we are still in the midst of a deadly disease. CDC data may be indicating that Covid-19 was in the US back in the fall, so it is possible that we are further along the curve than many think. We must be prepared for every outcome, but we must think critically about every component of this situation. There may be, as President Trump has said, light at the end of the tunnel. Be safe, be sane, and be steady!

Podcast: On the Objective – Rivers Of Living Water – Steven Menking – 04.05.2020

04.05.2020

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! Will we at long last as a result of the trials we are being led through finally cry out to God, or will we continue to wander aimlessly, following our own ambitions and refusing to prioritize God’s will? Brothers and sisters this moment is critical! Were can we find the rivers of living water to sustain us amidst these challenges? Who will guide us through this fearful time? We know that the answer is Jesus, but we continue to act as if our own solutions and approaches are still sufficient. It is time to go to the fountain of all resources for the spiritual provision we need in these times. God works everything together for good for those who love the Lord, and He will be glorified in this generation! The scriptures from this episode are from John 7.

This broadcast was produced in partnership with Prepper Broadcasting Network via a new collaborative effort Reliance: An Exploration of 21st Century Faith

Dealing With Ourselves In A Time Of Crisis – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 04.05.2020

peters-denial

Before Jesus was betrayed in the garden Peter – and the rest of the disciples – proclaimed that they would follow Jesus through any trial. Many have talked a good game for a long time only to find themselves without the resources they need in crisis. In these times perhaps we are noticing that we are not all that we thought we were. How have our relationships fared? Have we dedicated ourselves completely to fasting and prayer? Have we lived up to the ideal we have set for ourselves? Likely not… We have all fallen short of the glory of God, but there is a grace that comes from God when we cry out. There is a song that the Lord will place in our hearts when we draw near. There is a faith that enters our lives when we trust in Jesus. Now is the time to acknowledge our failures and to fling ourselves on the feet of the Lord. He will be victorious through this trial, and his faithfulness, righteousness, and mercies know no end!

So Peter went out and wept bitterly.

Luke 22:62

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another set of aphorisms from The Bed of Procrustes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Our goal in this series is to demonstrate that philosophy is neither boring nor unapproachable. Everyone must engage with our own thoughts and dig deeper to discover things about ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. Join us as Steven goes through important topics in practical philosophy and demonstrates how any amateur can begin to access more challenging materials. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – Econ Update – Steven Menking – 03.31.2020

03.31.2020

Steven returns for another economic update to discuss three hypotheses about the expansion of Federal Reserve asset purchasing programs and the US Government taking equity stakes in companies being bailed out by the $2.2 Tr relief package. The Freedom Hypothesis view these actions as white hat takeovers, the Tyranny Hypothesis views them as a headlong rush into a New World Order, and the Face Value Hypothesis views them as temporary, emergency economic measures that aren’t part of a larger design towards a particular end. Please think critically in these times as we continue to unpack the dynamics we are witnessing. Be safe, be sane, and be steady!

5 Words For Any Crisis – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 03.22.2020

Gethsemane

Conversations take on a different tone in crisis. We must all be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in it. It’s time to go past the day to day news to ask more meaningful questions about God, the times we live in, and the changing priorities we are witnessing. In order to be made ready for these times we must follow the lead of David in the midst of a great crisis in his life. Despite everything coming against him he proclaims ‘but I am in prayer’. These five words must guide our thinking and our actions in these times. We can pray God’s word from the psalms in particular as so many – including Jesus – have before us. Remind yourself of God’s faithfulness! He is never changing and never ending! Jesus is still King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and He will keep you amidst this storm. Let God guide you through this crisis, and stay firm in prayer brothers and sisters.

Do not keep silent,
O God of my praise!
For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful
Have opened against me;
They have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
They have also surrounded me with words of hatred,
And fought against me without a cause.
In return for my love they are my accusers,
But I give myself to prayer.

Psalm 109:1-4
