The City Podcast: Hunter Baker Judges You… on Ayn Rand

by Timothy Motte on November 24, 2014

The infamous Hunter Baker enjoyed Atlas Shrugged.

In public.

This poses a problem for John Mark Reynolds, who simultaneously respects Hunter Baker and shuns Ayn Rand. Can Dr. Baker convince Dr. Reynolds to read Rand with Christian charity?

ADVICE TO MY DAUGHTER 13: THE LITTLE ONE

by Lou Markos on November 20, 2014

When you were young, my daughter, your favorite Bible story was the calling of David. Again and again, you asked me to tell it to you before you went to bed.

Commissioned by God to anoint a new king to replace the unfaithful Saul, the prophet Samuel makes his way to the house of Jesse, a man blessed with many fine sons. God had told Samuel that one of Jesse’s sons would be king, but he had not told him which one it would be. Accordingly, Samuel has Jesse parade his sons before him one by one, from the eldest to the youngest. The boys are tall, strong, and regal, but none of them, it turns out, is the chosen one.

ADVICE TO MY DAUGHTER 12: WIFELY REWARDS

by Lou Markos on November 13, 2014

Too often, the vital work of the wife and mother goes unnoticed and unappreciated by her husband, her children, and her community. But do not lose heart. The celebration of the godly wife that wends its way through the last chapter of Proverbs ends with a great promise:

“Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates” (28-31). [click to continue…]

The City Podcast: How to Win an Ideological War

by Timothy Motte on November 10, 2014

The Soviet Union definitely lost the Cold War.

But did the West really win it?

Dr. Barbara Elliott encountered hundreds of refugees as she was reporting on the fall of the Berlin Wall. Their stories reveal an unprecedented spiritual revolution.

God help the West if we replace Communism with decadence.

ADVICE TO MY DAUGHTER 11: SUBSIDIARITY

by Lou Markos on November 6, 2014

In the previous entry, I highlighted the charitable nature of the Proverbs 31 wife. The loss of such wives—or, to be more precise, the loss of strong godly families who both protect and are nurtured by such wives—has led to untold societal decay and dissolution. Absent such wives, and their well-respected husbands, services that should have risen upward from stable and vibrant families and churches have increasingly been replaced by bureaucratized programs that necessarily lack the personal, human touch.
