Show Notes:

Trump in 2020:

  • Trump wants to run again
  • what do Christians do now?
  • Trump is amazing for conservatives
  • but at the same time there is a gody sideshow
  • we have a republican actually governing as a republican
  • the problem is in 2020
  • I’m not proposing to answer this question yet
  • but I want to start responsible Christians talking about it before it comes

C.S. Lewis’s Dangerous Idea:

  • written by Victor Reppert
  • he is annualizing and interacting with C.S. Lewis’ argument from reason
  • if we are nothing but matter in motion, then we have no basis for saying anything is true or not
  • everyone even materialists can’t believe their thoughts
  • this whole book is the work of a Christian philosopher, who is very careful and diligent

Aladzon

  • means boaster
  • listed in Romans 1:30 and 2 Tim. 3:2
  • vainglory always seeks to puff itself up
  • let him who wants to boast, boast in the Lord
  • boasting of some sort is inescapable
  • giving glory to God is the heart of every sane response
