This episode looks primarily at two articles on socialism with the understanding that socialism will be "on trial" during the 2020 Presidential campaign. What, really, is socialism, and why should we oppose it? Both articles consider socialism as a progressive step towards Marxism, and both point out the conflicts between socialism/Marxism and the Christian worldview. 

Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.

First Lutheran also publishes a daily podcast called The Scarlet Thread (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-scarlet-thread/id1110938468?mt=2). This podcast is a reading of the appointed texts for the Two-Year Daily Lectionary. After two years, listeners will have heard most of the Old Testament once and most of the New Testament twice. If you are liturgically-minded and want a little more Bible in your life, this is a great podcast for you. Contact me here: emc2@felchouston.org.

This debate between two philosophers looks at the classic question: What is man's purpose? Are we "merely" highly evolved animals, or something more? Do we need external, objective reasons for purpose or can we find it on our own? Thanks to Dr. Steven Pena and Professor Evan Friske for offering their skills and time for this event. Enjoy!

This solo episode revisits the Library Drag Queen story time events here in Houston, but this time with a twist. We look at a story regarding "comprehensive" sex education in schools and why a reductionistic Christianity (Jesus and creeds only) offers a less-than-honest view of the Bible's teaching on sexuality. I also take a look at a recent article I wrote on the dangers of pot and pot culture. Enjoy! 

ALSO: Even though I do not use profanity ever on the show, I am labeling this show "E" for explicit because of the content. It is probably not kid safe. But of course, neither is what they are teaching our kids in school!

This episode looks at the newly-minted bisexuality of Mr. Rogers, five things that can be said in response to the claim of "intolerance" towards LGBT folks, an example of what will probably be the next significant Supreme Court case on that issue, and a really bad headline from Charisma Magazine.

Pro-life philosopher Clinton Wilcox joined me for this episode of Sin Boldly to look at an important debate between Dr. Mike Adams and abortionist Dr. Willie Parker on the morality - or lack thereof - of abortion. We reviewed the main points of the debate and the particular arguments used. We also dove a little deeper than the debaters could given their time constraints. If you are at all interested in this topic, this is a great companion to the original debate which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTIpSmzlMwo
