Today we will dive deep into the issue of climate change and discover whether the current hysteria is built on sound, objective science or if there is a more sinister agenda at play. What happens when bad theology gets applies to sloppy science? You will hear the answers to these questions and more as you think biblically and critically on this topic.
Our guest today is a legend in journalism. Today he joins us to take us on a “road trip” through over fifty years of journalism and American life, serving as a “watchman” on culture and politics and seeking to conform it to a standard that never changes. A watchman “keeps guard over a building at night, to protect it from fire, vandals, or thieves.” Our guest is a believer that certain values and principles never change and has critiqued misbehavior and wrong-headedness by people on “his side” from the start. He will show us how to apply values equally and by using critical thinking, along with a clear biblical worldview, he will share what he has learned after writing about our nation for 50 years. This will be a very special conversation.
