    Episode 20

    Under God, the ministry of the doctor is meant to be a ministry of life and healing; under humanistic man-gods, doctors are increasingly being asked to become murderers. All this is done behind the blasphemous claim that humanism reverences and affirms life.

    NOTE: This episode discusses sexuality from a biblical perspective. Viewer discretion and parental guidance is advised.

  • Worldview and a Christian Philosophy of History (part 1)

    Episode 14

    A historian needs a criterion for distinguishing the historical aspect of reality from all the other aspects.

  • Worldview and a Christian Philosophy of History (part 3)

    From Nimrod’s historic axiological rebellion of Babel proceeded an ontological subversion of the whole notion of truth in the development and dissemination of occult and psychological religion: man’s idea, not revelation, asserted as the basis of truth.

  • Religion and Work

    Episode 10

    Despite its claims to an exalted position of religious neutrality, secular relativism is self-refuting because it clearly has absolute intent – to control the whole playing field. We must expose secularism’s self-deception and confront our culture with biblical truth.

    Episode 8

    Episode 6

    When it comes to human culture, the question is not whether we will shape it, but rather what kind of culture will we cultivate.

  • Justice, Race and Revolution (part 2)

    Episode 5
