News, Views, and a Dachshund

Air Date: June 22, 2014 SOMETHING HAS changed in the last couple of years, and it feels as though we in the United States–and maybe the nations of the world in general–are on the downward side of a spiritual tipping point. Another mainline Christian denomination has just affirmed homosexual marriage, and earlier this year business owners in New Mexico and Colorado were told they had to provide services for ceremonies against their wishes, even though they believe gay marriage is contrary to scripture.

Meanwhile, transhumanism continues to move into the mainstream. The worldview of the transhumanist movement, to put it simply, is 180 degrees from that of Christianity.

And the situation in the Middle East continues to take a heavy toll on the oldest Christian communities in the world. At least the mainstream media has finally taken notice that areas evangelized in the first century have basically been cleansed of Christians — by militants armed by the United States and its allies.

Also: PCUSA divests from Israel; free will an illusion, says science; Google invests half a billion dollars in a startup company that makes home surveillance cameras; and a discussion of the lateness of the hour.

Your Hosts: Derek and Sharon Gilbert
SINCE March, 2005, Derek and Sharon Gilbert have been sharing their take on cryptopolitics and things that go bump in the night. Those initial podcasts (back when ‘podcasting’ was a brand new idea) were rough–recorded through a jury-rigged setup of string and wire and duct tape.

Always ready to share a laugh and an opinion, the Gilberts emphasize the joy of living for Christ in the midst of doom and gloom news.

New shows are typically produced on Sunday evenings. All new shows are available on demand and can be downloaded and burned to disc or loaded into your favorite mp3 player.
