Tonight we are moving back into the realm of technology to again cover what’s happening in the field of artificial intelligence. First, let’s try to unpack what we actually mean when we use that term. Second, let’s look at some real world happenings and forecasts in this critical area of technology and life. Last, let’s examine what our worldviews have to say about the topic. There is a great deal of nuance and complexity in this subject, so we’re going to have a non-technical, high level conversation so that all can participate.

Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!

God bless,

Steven

Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Art Of Listening – 11.27.2017

EarPainting.jpg

The importance of listening is an idea that has been repeated so much that it is now a cliche and a common trope for observational comedians discussing relationships. Nonetheless, we can – and must – understand that there is great value, insight, and wisdom in the tried and true sayings. Let’s take a closer look at listening. What does it mean to listen? What makes someone a “good listener”? How much of listening is actually verbal and sound based? Is listening enough to help us solve problems and make better decisions? What do various worldviews say about listening?

Podcast: SER 114 – Dr. Corey Miller – Leaving Mormonism

Corey-Miller

As an endorsement to the new book “Leaving Mormonism” Dr. Stuart McAllister recently wrote:

“For anyone with family, friends, or contact with Mormons and the Latter Day Saints movement, many questions arise. If you are from a traditional or conservative Christian background, you find yourself struggling to reconcile the claims made by those within Mormonism with what the Bible and historic Christianity both teach and claim. Despite the insistence that we are all talking about Christian thought and ideas, as soon as one explores, compares, and considers carefully the actual claims of Christ, they stand in stark contrast to Latter Day Saints teaching and claims.”

My guest on this episode of SER is Dr. Corey Miller, President of Ratio Christi and one of 4 authors of the new book, “Leaving Mormonism.” Stay tuned for our conversation next in this episode of Soaring Eagle Radio.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – How Important Is Being Thankful? – 11.21.2017

LAstSupper

Thanksgiving is this week, bringing with it the usual entourage of family, overeating, and early Christmas decorations. This is a great opportunity to spend some time thinking about the dynamic of thankfulness. What does it mean to be thankful? How can demonstrations of thankfulness differ? Why should we value thankfulness? What can take place if we aren’t thankful? Can we be too thankful in certain situations? How important is being thankful?

Podcast: SER 113 – Chris & Rory – Don’t Let Them Burn

Chris-and-Rory

From the “Don’t Let Them Burn” website we read the following: “Don’t Let Them Burn” exists to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and expose the works of darkness in entertainment, while looking through the lens of Bible Prophecy! This will help us to connect the dots from the past, and present, while the future unfolds before us. You will learn what The Holy Bible says about many things going on around us. Our world is changing rapidly and many are going to Hell. Are we just going to sit there and let them burn? Or will we rise up and give them Jesus?

Stay tuned for my conversation with Chris and Rory next in this episode of SER.

What Amazes Jesus – Pastor Teresa Conlon – Times Square Church – 11.12.2017

Centurion

Both our faith and our lack of faith amaze Jesus. During His earthly ministry, Jesus marveled at the faith of a centurion and marveled at the lack of faith of his near kinsmen. It is time for us to ask God for a faith that amazes Him. Brothers and sisters, let us keep the faith and be strengthened by the word of God. His promises are yea and amen. Praise the Lord!

 

Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”

And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.

When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.

Matthew 8:5-13
