Sweat the Small Stuff

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Too many despair of finding solutions to the problems we face because they focus on the wrong things. We face grand problems, certainly, but those are largely not our concern, at least not our daily concern. The right focus for most men is the everyday — putting in an honest day’s work, being a good husband, and raising godly children.

There is no immediate solution to every problem we face and no leader can resolve everything overnight. The Christian life is lived out in the small matters, even more than it is in the grand ones. We prove our faith with our works. The works, of course, do not save us, but they do naturally flow from a living faith. With regard to the kingdom of the left hand, we have a great deal of control and we should strive to make things better as we are able — plant trees, help your neighbor, think of the future. With regard to the Kingdom of the right hand, that outcome is in God’s hands, and we have no need to worry.

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” — Martin Luther

Christian Nationalism Is Submission to God

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

You may have heard of the ‘two kingdoms’ doctrine and have certainly heard of the ‘separation of Church and State’, but is either of these a truly Christian position? Is God Lord only of His Church or does He also rule the kingdoms of this world? As Christians, what are our duties in the context of the State?

The Media, and many others, have spent years, now, shouting about “Christian Nationalism”, but few could even define either term. This episode is both a primer on Christian Nationalism from a Christian perspective and the definitive statement of its core nature. Christian Nationalism is simply Christianity lived out in the left-hand kingdom, for both kingdoms belong to Christ.
