Podcast: The Amateur Society – Transparency – 10.17.2017

FogWater

Transparency is a value that people of all worldviews tend to recognize as lacking in our current society. This applies to all manner of life from personal relationships up to the most significant geopolitical decisions being made behind closed doors even as I write. We will begin our discussion by coming to a working definition of transparency and identifying areas where we would prefer more or less of it. Is there such a thing as too much transparency? By the end of the month thousands of additional documents pertaining to the JFK assassination are scheduled to be released unless President Trump seals them again. What might the full measure of transparency entail in this situation?

Say Yes – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 10.08.2017

IsaiahVision

Say yes to God today! Times Square Church recently celebrated its 30th anniversary since being planted by Pastor David Wilkerson in 1987. Always press forward in prayer, in God’s Word, in fasting, and in all things glorifying to the name of Jesus.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:

“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

Isaiah 6:8

The Amateur Society: What Is A Hero?

Amateurs,

In our generation we tend to use language in a way that trivializes concepts that have immense historicity, narrative weight, and conceptual importance. Love is certainly one. The notion of a hero is another. I contend that a properly anti-fragile worldview must contain a heroic self conception. We must view ourselves – at least in part – as heroes engaged in an act of overcoming the hardships and tragedies of life. A balanced and well thought out worldview is absolutely indispensable here, because there are all manner of causes and belief structures where the appeal of being a hero can become warped and perverted in a way that engenders evil. Not all villains see themselves as such.

God bless,

Steven

Podcast: Soaring Eagle Radio 106 – George Carneal – From Queer to Christ: My Journey Into the Light

George-Carneal

Click here to listen to Pastor Mike Spaulding interview George Carneal on Soaring Eagle Radio!

“Christian allies of the LGBT community may feel they are being a ‘good Christian’ by supporting and affirming this ‘lifestyle.’ While we should have the heart of Christ by loving and treating everyone with compassion and respect, encouraging a homosexual to remain in this life is encouraging further enslavement into a life that is in rebellion to God. Jesus loved the outcasts but, still, He did not condone sin. It is hurting the homosexual. They need to know deliverance is possible.”

This is a quote from author George Carneal’s book, From Queer to Christ: My Journey Into the Light. And it is the subject of my conversation with George in this episode of SER.

The Amateur Society: Historical Uncertainty And The Future

Amateurs,

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Tuesday 9/19, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety.

These weekly meetings can be found on Spreaker, YouTube, and on iTunes via the Podcast app.

I attended the True Legends conference this past weekend, and it struck me that we don’t ask the right questions about history. This vast detriment creates a profound level of uncertainty and ignorance that leads to powerlessness. What proportion of our knowledge about history is accurate? How much are we missing? How could we even estimate the size of the gaps in our understanding of both natural and human history?

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

God bless!
