Interview w/ Jeremy Collins of Theonomoney: Discussing ESG From a Biblical Worldview
How should Christians think about ESG scores? Thanks to my brother Jeremy, we have a fruitful discussion about the trojan horse of ESG scores and how we ought to think of them. This is by no means an exhaustive take on the issue but rather a starting place. Thanks for listening!

Gospel in Eschatology: The Parable of the Mustard Seed
Bryce and I continue to describe how the gospel goes to the ends of the earth through a postmillennial understanding of eschatology.

Marvel and DC's War on God: Doctor Strange, Aleister Crowley, and the Multiverse of Satanism with Pastor Joe Schimmel
Many are unaware of the true history of one of today’s most popular Marvel characters, Doctor Strange. What is the connection to Satanist Aleister Crowley, Satanism, the ancient heresy of Gnosticism and Doctor Strange? To truly understand the spiritual foundation of Marvel cosmology, one must first understand the influence behind many of the comic book writers. I hope you enjoy my second discussion with Pastor Joe Schimmel from GoodFight Ministries about the deceitfulness of Marvel and DC comics. This episode highlights the second part of their 7-part series on Marvel and DC's War on God. We hone in on Satanism and Aleister Crowley. Please visit the links below to watch the film!

After studying and researching the movies, the comic books, as well as the writers behind these stories, it became apparent that there was a spiritual component influencing these stories that is anti-God.

Gospel in Eschatology: A Theology of Dominion
Bryce and I continue to apply the Gospel, but now in the area of Eschatology. We hope that this primer on the idea of dominion in God's word paints a new picture eschatologically than you have heard before. For The King!

Responding to The Bible Says What!?
Go listen to the interview with Michael Wiseman at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rorcjBke9DI&t=921s Every empire and form of government has fallen and crumbled. This is not evidence of a theocracy being an issue, this actually lends itself to the depravity of man. That is the common denominator. Some forms of government actually encourage human depravity like totalitarian dictatorship (characteristic of atheistic countries) but our constitutional republic (form of government) with God as our king informing our laws and ethics (theocracy) limits and mitigates the ability for human depravity to rear its ugly head!

The Gospel Scope & Vocation
"Therefore, a poor workman, faithfully using the gift God has given him, pleases God no less than a preacher of the Word, for he served God in the same faith and with the same Spirit." - Martin Luther's Commentary on Galatians Chapter 5 This week we apply the Gospel to the idea of vocation (calling)/work. Many Christian teachers want to make you feel bad for your work, however Christ never meant any such thing in his word. We are all priests and workers in the kingdom of God. Thanks for listening!

The Game of Chess in God's World
Noah and I discuss the game of Chess and the parallels inherent within to the Christian worldview. We know this may not interest all, however we had a ton of fun filming it!

The Gospel Scope & Hard Sciences
Now we apply the gospel to all of the hard sciences. It is important to walk through how every single worldview applies their "gospel" to the worldview. In rationalism, the savior is the human rationality so it will be applied to whatever models it conjures. We walk through this exercise here and show how the hard sciences are not immune from starting presuppositions. Thanks for listening!

Christian Aggression? Is There Such a Thing?
Aggression is one of the underlying reason our culture hates men. A desire to smash the patriarchy or a claim to a toxic patriarchy has its basis in a distortion of masculine Christian aggression. In this episode we show how Jesus Christ himself was a very aggressive man, and for good reason. If masculine aggression goes, so goes a large part of society. Thanks for listening!

The Gospel Scope & Soft Sciences
We are nearing the end of the Gospel Scope and I hope it has been a blast to listen through! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is far more reaching that we could ever anticipate. Christ even rules and reigns over the soft sciences such as, economics, sociology, law, psychology, philosophy, political science, etc... Bryce and I walk through a few principles, or tools, Christians ought to remember when engaging the soft sciences. We also give some examples. Thanks so much for listening! For The King!

Christian Nationalism & Merriam-Webster Dictionary Changes Definition of Female
This Wonky Wednesday I am joined with Noah, a frequent guest on the podcast! We talk this episode about how Christian Nationalism is conflated with an evil version of itself. We walk through a document from a Christian organization that seeks to expose Christian nationalism even penning a statement of belief about the subject. I hope you enjoy the episode and it equips and edifies you to think about these topics from a Biblical Christian perspective. For The King!

The Gospel Scope & Culture (Contra Pagan Culture)
Truth is exclusive. Culture is not created in a vacuum. All cultures reach for a transcendent reality to anchor themselves in, hence the root word Colere or Cultura, denoting growth and cultivation (a bacteria culture) or when applied to human society meaning "the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group" (taken from https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/culture). Cultures are either objectively bad or objectively good (Christian culture being the only good).

We are wrapping up a VERY long series on gospel foundations! If you have been with us the whole time we are very thankful you stuck with it and are finishing up with us as well.

The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate with Brother Bryce
This Wonky Wednesday, Bryce walks us through the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate. The doctrine is seen throughout church history but wasn't formalized until the Magdeburg confession of 1550. Bryce walks us through the doctrine based off a book we recently read by Matt Trewhella called unironically, "The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates". The book is definitely worth reading. Bryce makes a comment in the discussion about a right of other religions to worship. The first commandment of God lays our clearly that humanity is not to have any other gods besides Yahweh, therefore there is no God-given right to freedom of religion in the sense of freedom to make false idols. If we are to legislate according to God's laws and not man's laws (secular humanism or any other manmade religion) then the law of God prescribes in his word is that you do not have the right to worship false idols. Every government is a theocracy and derives their laws from metaphysical principles. That may manifest in "reason" and "logic" from the secular atheist that is tolerant of every worldview besides every other worldview or from a holy book in various religions. Regardless, this is the clear teaching of the 1st commandment and when God visits a nation in judgement he holds them accountable to the false idols they made and does NOT recognize their "freedom of religion" in the sense many understand it today. Read Isaiah 10:5-11 for a clear example of this.

The Gospel & Glorifying Grace's Security in Election
God's grace continues to be marveled at throughout human history! Here is another element of his grace glorifying us in his election before the foundation of the world. He guarantees our inheritance, our glory, not because of anything inherent in us but freely and unconditionally. God's grace is greater and is secure for us in his electing. Praise God! I hope this encouraged you brothers and sisters!

The Gospel & Glorifying Grace's Finality in the Resurrection of Christ
Glorifying Grace is predicated on the glory Christ has in his resurrection and vindication over sin and death. Christ is now seated at the right hand of the father in glory because he defeated sin and death. He proved himself the son of God because he was sinless and the grave could not hold him. Due to this resurrection of Christ, we find our glory from him by looking to Christ as our savior and the great executioner of death. Thanks for listening, I hope you are encouraged brothers and sisters.

The Gospel & Seeking After Glorifying Grace
Salvation consists of 3 parts. Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification. We have talked about the first two, but now this week we start speaking on God's grace in justifying us. God's grace not only justifies and sanctifies but it also brings us to the end and it wills us to seek after glory, that same glory found in the face of Jesus Christ. This is why this is good news, because God's grace glorifies us! Thanks for listening.

The Gospel & Sanctifying Grace
Last week, Bryce and I walked through how God's grace is the kind of grace that justifies us before him. Not only does it justify us before him, but it also is the kind of grace that carries us through and sanctifies us until the end! If you have been given God's wonderful grace then you are a child of God! God will continue to refine and sanctify you before him that he may present you blameless before the throne of his glorious grace. “I have a great need for Christ: I have a great Christ for my need.” ― Charles H. Spurgeon Key Texts: Titus 2:11-14 2 Peter 3:18 1 Peter 5:5 (also see James 4:6) Hebrews 4:16 ; 13:9 Philippians 2:12-13 My guest joining me this week is my brother Bryce.

The bible speaks of God's grace in two different ways. Today Bryce and I walk through how to think about the grace that God bestows on us in a justifying sense.

Discussing Samuel Renihan's book, The Mystery of Christ His Covenant and His Kingdom
“What is this book good for? It establishes a clear linear understanding of the biblical text in its purpose of driving the reader to see how faithfully God executes His purpose in creation. The covenantal framework from Adam to Christ, from creation to consummation is a most apt way of seeing the flow of the entire biblical text. One is lifted into the journey to see the entire scope of divine providence work out the divine decree from generation to generation, book to book, event to event, person to person.” Tom Nettles This book presents a particular Baptist's view of Covenant Theology. I highly recommend it Pick up a copy of the book -> Here

The Gospel & Christ as our Ransom
This week Bryce and I walk through the idea of Christ's sacrifice as a ransom. We are indebted to God and our wages due to us is death (Rom. 6:23) but Christ has paid that ransom and won us back from the wrath of God, NOT FROM SATAN'S CLUTCHES. If you want more information on Jesus satisfying us from God's wrath listen to the very first episode of the podcast. Thanks for listening! “We need not wonder that so much importance is attached to our Lord’s resurrection. It is the seal and memorial stone of the great work of redemption, which He came to do. It is the crowning proof that He has paid the debt He undertook to pay on our behalf, won the battle He fought to deliver us from hell, and is accepted as our guarantee and our substitute by our Father in heaven. Had He never come forth from the prison of the grave, how could we ever have been sure that our ransom had been fully paid? Had He never risen from His conflict with the last enemy, how could we have felt confident that He has overcome the power of death from the devil? But thanks be unto God, we are not left in doubt. The Lord Jesus really rose again for our justification.” - J.C Ryle Key Texts:  Mark 10:45 (Matt. 20:28 as well) Hosea 13:14 (quoted in 1 Cor. 15:55) 1 Timothy 2:6 Psalm 110:1-4 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Interview with Chris Anderson: Coaching a Little 500 Team & Christian Excellency
This Wednesday I am joined by an old friend of mine from college, Chris Anderson. In this episode we walk through what he does as a coach for a little 500 team and how he uses it to impact the lives of the people not only on the team, but also in the race. We then turn a fundamental principle in the Christian faith. That principle is best laid out in the Latin phrase "Soli Deo Gloria" translated... to God alone be the Glory. We must remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ on the sermon on the mount, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

The Gospel & Substitutionary Atonement
Continuing on our Gospel foundations series, this week, we walk through how substitutionary atonement is crucial when understanding the gospel. We must believe and trust in Jesus Christ as our substitute on the cross. He bore the punishment that was due us. We remember in God's word as it says in Isaiah 53: 4-5 and 11-12, "Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." "Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors."

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God."

He started off as a conventional doctor but changed his mind after a life experience that left him clueless as to the current medical system. Our conversation was enlightening and fascinating on so many levels. It was amazing to have this podcast and have the opportunity to interact with him personally as the interviewer. I hope you enjoy the episode and the truth conveyed there within.

The Gospel, Faith & Repentance
Merry Christmas! Bryce and I continue in our series on Gospel foundations. This week the foundational principle to the gospel is faith coupled with repentance. Last Sunday we talked about faith being the conduit by which we enter into Christ's righteousness. This can be thought of as mere faith, however, this week we want to walk more fully through the nature of faith and how repentance plays an intimate role in every act of faith. Thanks for listening! Key Texts: 1 Thessalonians 1:9 Mark 1:14-15 Psalm 7:12-13 Psalm 51 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.

The Gospel & Faith-Based Righteousness
The prior week to this episode we walked through the great transaction known as double imputation. One may ask after hearing that Jesus has fulfilled the law and that we can receive that righteousness that comes through fulfilling that law through double imputation, how can I enter into that great transaction? The answer is through faith but as with any theological truth, we could always go deeper than the mere answer. Tune in and listen to Bryce and I flesh out yet another foundation of the gospel that we so cherish.

Canada's Bill C-4 / The Church and Covid-19
This episode I walk through Canada's new horrific bill that has royal ascent and to be put into legislation 30 days after that ascent. The bill criminalized up to 5 years in prison for forcing any individual to undergo conversion therapy (in other words counseled in a biblical worldview of human sexuality). You can also be imprisoned for up to 2 years for just advertising the practice. After that I walk though one of Joe Rogan's recent guests, Peter A. McCullough and his clinical expertise on how the nation has reacted to Covid-19 and his claim that the church along with the rest of the world has undergone a mass psychosis similar to that in cults and Nazi Germany.

The Gospel & the Great Transaction
Last week Bryce and I walked through how Jesus has fulfilled the law in all righteousness in his obedient life on earth. Jesus was without sin, yet we are with sin as laid out in our episode "Our fall and the Gospel". So, how can we ever hope to achieve a foreign righteousness that is not our own? The bible lays out a clear mechanism by which we can receive Christ's righteousness and lose our guilt of sin that we have procured for ourselves. That idea has been named in theology as double imputation. Tune in as Bryce and I walk though this biblical mechanism that is foundational to the gospel! Thanks for listening.

The Gospel & Fulfillment of the Law
An apology is due to you listeners as I have been negligent to upload the past two weeks. I have just been married and have been on a honeymoon and moving into our new house so I hope you can forgive me! Last time on the Sunday series, we spoke about the law and the gospel and how we ought to think about the two together. Building on that episode we walk through how foundational to the gospel is the understanding that the law that we have transgressed, Christ has completely followed and fulfilled in his obedient life, obedience even unto the cross that he died on. This is a foundational truth to the gospel, Christ must have kept the law that we broke for there to be any hope in the gospel.

Law & Gospel
Many think that we are now no longer "under the law" but under Christ in the gospel. While this is partly true it reeks of antinomianism. Lets not fall into this trap of thinking that just because we are in Christ that we no longer need God's law or want God's law. God's law is refreshing reviving the soul. It is to be delighted in because it is good and shows us the very nature of God himself. While it no longer condemns us in Christ it is our standard of holiness to walk in through the spirit. The law & the Gospel are intimately connected, let us not forget this! Psalm 1: "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in he way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night." Key Texts: Romans 3:20; Galatians 3:23-25 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Our Fall and the Gospel
The fall of mankind is the great fault in this broken world. It is a schism that runs straight through every person, family, and society on the face of this planet. We must come to grips with this terrible news before the gospel of Jesus Christ will become sweeter than honey to our lips. 1 Corinthians 15:22 : For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. “I do think that the best preaching of the gospel is when the preacher himself enjoys it, when he himself is heartily in love with it; that is a part of the unction that God gives to go with it. When a cook is preparing a dainty dish, methinks he smiles as he sends it up to his lord's table, and he has some enjoyment of it himself. I love to preach a gospel of which I feel the sweetness in my own soul. So, dear hearer, if you begin to feel the sweetness of hearing the gospel, you shall feel more of it. Those who are tired of preaching are those who do not often hear it. If it is the gospel of Jesus Christ, and you have often heard it, you want to hear it again.” - Charles Spurgeon Key Texts: Romans 5: 12,18-19 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Redeemed by Christ
Jesus has has done so many things by spilling his blood for us on the cross. Among those is that of redemption. Redeeming something entails paying a ransom to restore something to yourself but also at a cost to yourself, not because the thing is inherently worth it. There is an element of worth in the transaction but to God we are by no means worthy of the death of his son. It ought to humble ourselves into subjection to him.

Fellowship
This past weekend was my bachelor party! I am mere days away from getting married and I am beyond excited to be united to my bride, the love of my life. To celebrate such an event my brother and a few friends went on a hiking trip for my bachelor party! It was an amazing time and I was reminded of the importance of Christain fellowship and how more important it will be to me as a married man in desperate need of prayer to love and cherish my wife as Christ did the church. We didn't have time to continue our series because of this party but I hope you enjoy this quick side episode. Thanks for listening! Key Text: Psalm 133: 1 Joining me this week is Noah, a close friend of mine. He just finished his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering and works part time at a prosthetic practice.

The Centrality of the Gospel
This Sunday Bryce and I walk through the Gospel, the doctrine of first importance to the Christian. We must get the Gospel and we must believe in that correct Gospel to be saved, for no other gospel has the power to save! Thanks for listening and tuning in to the For The King podcast! “This is why Paul upholds the teaching of the gospel in such a forceful way ... Seeing such an example and such a picture of man’s great weakness and fickleness, Paul states that the truth of the gospel must supersede anything that we may devise … he is showing us that we ought to know the substance of the doctrine which is brought to us in the name of God, so that our faith can be fully grounded upon it. Then we will not be tossed about with every wind, nor will we wander about aimlessly, changing our opinions a hundred times a day; we will persist in this doctrine until the end. This, in brief, is what we must remember.” ― John Calvin, Sermons on Galatians Key Texts: Romans 1: 1-4, 16 ; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Masculinity & Femininity Everywhere Else
This Sunday we finish our series on Biblical Gender Roles. We have seen how gender roles apply in homes and churches, but to keep ourselves consistent with what scripture teaches, we must extend its application to the civil sphere and beyond as well. God has designed the world a certain way. Gods word, logic, reasoning, mathematics, etc. are all used in God's world. They help guide us and are used in every walk of life. Thus, is it no different for gender roles, they apply in all scenarios. Thanks for listening and enjoy!

Analysis of First Wave Feminism
Bryce has abandoned me to the pit. I will rouse myself and hold fast to the LORD in this trial, he will help me to fly SOLO this week on the For The King podcast. We have been slowly walking through a biblical worldview when considering gender roles. This week I use Zach Garris' book as a resource to quote a few feminist from he 1st wave in the 1850's. They knew what the bible CLEARLY taught about biblical gender roles and by golly did they hate it. I labor to expose you all to what they said about biblical principles and analyze what has caused them to say such things. Lets not let the feminist understand what the bible clearly teaches about the patriarchy be more robust and accurate than ours... *ahem* egalitarians/complementarians *ahem*.

Masculinity & Femininity in the Church
This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms three weeks ago, to the home, and now to the church. The church is the bulwark against an evil and God-hating world. The church has been tasked with the proclamation of the gospel through public gathering and worship of God and sending families out into our communities to win the nations to Christ. For the organization to run well God has instituted certain members of his church to be leaders and servants of the church known as elders and deacons. This week bryce and I walk through how masculinity and femininity play out in the church. Certain men being the leaders and the rest of the men and women to follow them who ultimately follow Christ. Thanks for tuning in! I hope you are continuing to enjoy the series that is so needed in our culture.

This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms two weeks ago, to the home. The home is the foundational unit for all of society. For the church, businesses, civil government, all of society. So, we plant our anchor in the home where men and women have specific roles they play out, without which all of society will collapse.

Book Review (August) : The Fear of God by John Bunyan
"When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments." - 2 Timothy 4:13 “The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, and they that lack the beginning have neither middle nor end.” - John Bunyan “Though there is not always grace where there is the fear of hell, yet, to be sure, there is no grace where there is no fear of God.” ― John Bunyan. This episode I walk through The Fear of God by John Bunyan. It was a wonderful read and something definitely worth picking up. The contemporary church doesn't speak much about the fear of God, but I assure you that after reading this book by Bunyan you will be well informed. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Learning to fear God rightly is fruit that every Christian ought to bear. Thanks for listening!

Defining Biblical Masculinity & Femininity
This week on the Sunday Series, Bryce and I begin a new series on gender roles as defined by the creation order in the bible. Gender is thought to be a social construct that changes with society/culture. Biblically we know that our gender, and the gender roles inherent in each gender, are defined by God alone and not mankind. Gender does not change and Gender roles do not change. God has told us what these things are and how we ought to think about them. The human mind is spectacular but not spectacular enough to undo the things God has already put into us. The weeks following, Bryce and I will continue to walk through biblical gender roles and how Christians ought to think about them based on various passages in the bible. Thanks so much for listening, we hope it glorifies God and edifies you! Key Texts: Genesis 1:26-27, 2:15-25; 1 Corinthians 11:3, 7-9 Eric Conn's Podcast is great to listen to for biblical masculinity/femininity : https://open.spotify.com/show/3g6JOGWFPQAEbaQlmIaCwp?si=c5778811911e42fa Articles with studies and statistics of women depressed in the work force https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/11/21/women-with-workplace-power-are-more-depressed-men-not-so-much/ https://hrexecutive.com/hres-number-of-the-day-depression-among-working-women/ https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190225192140.htm -> THIS ONE IS VERY IMPORTANT My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Interview: Zach Garris, Author of Masculine Christianity
This Wonky Wednesday I interview author, attorney, writer, and follower of Christ Zach Garris. Zach holds a Master of Divinity from RTS (Jackson) and a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School. He has written for Chronicles Magazine, the Mises Institute, and Desiring God. He edited a book call "Dabney on Fire", writes at KnowingScripture.com and manages another website TeachDiligently.com. He wrote the book "Masculine Christianity" which is what the interview is over. In this interview, we walk through the book to get a few big picture points that Christians ought to consider moving forward in America. Feminism, Egalitarianism, Complementarianism, and Biblical Patriarchy are just a few topics in this episode. Biblical roles of men and women are always rooted in the creation order and not some cultural norm. Enjoy the episode and thanks so much for listening!

The Object in Objectivity
Recently, Bryce and I walked through why the theory of relativity, not Einstein's theory ;), is a foolish and contradictory worldview to hold. This week Bryce and I press the issue further with a short talk objectivity and why it is precious for the Christian to cling to. One of Christianity's most prevalent form of relativism is emotionalism in the Church. Bryce and I use emotionalism as a case study for relativism in the church. Enjoy and thanks for listening!

Book Review (July) : John Macarthur Handbook of Effective Biblical Leadership
2 Timothy 4:13 : "When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments." When Paul is requesting what Timothy do when he comes back to him from his journey, he requests books and parchments. Who knows exactly what Paul was reading outside of the scriptures, but we do know that he valued books greatly. Gods word is given to us in books and books have been a conduit for information all throughout human history. This book review, I was only able to read one book this month. It was a good one though, tune in because you may want to read it!  Pick up the book here -> https://www.amazon.com/MacArthur-Handbook-Effective-Leadership-Shepherds/dp/0736976302/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=John+macarthur+handbook&qid=1628289080&sr=8-2 Website: forthekingpodcast.com Inquires : forthekingpodcast@gmail.com

The Myth Of Relativism
“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent” ― John Calvin “There are no facts, only interpretations.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche So many people think that the buck stops with them when it comes to truth and reality. An often refrain in our society is, "This is my truth", which tells us a lot of what our postmodern society thinks about truth. Something may very well be true to you and you may very well believe it but that does not mean that is is true. Truth is something external to us. The scriptures paint a clear picture that truth is objective and external to human experience or interpretation. An author always has an intent in something that they do because the intent is what drives the action itself. There is a true reality to all things and we know that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Join Bryce and I this week as we display what God has told us about what truth is and interact with our cultures claim of truth being relative.  Key Texts: John 1:9-10; 8:12; 8:44-45; 14:6; 17:17,   All of 1 John and 3 John Psalm 119:160 Resources: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/relativism/ -> Defining our terms (do not endorse all information) https://open.spotify.com/episode/0MHUfG0XJRw1NzMDR7qLis?si=rbkAOsldRXKfwRd9WsE1Zw&dl_branch=1 -> Another podcast on the topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZDeQBIX7r4 -> Arguments against subjectivism https://newlearningonline.com/new-learning/chapter-7/nietzsche-on-the-impossibility-of-truth -> Intro to some post-modern thought My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Society's Bane: Homosexuality
This week, my guest (Bryce) and I dive into the second part of a two part series concerning effeminacy in men. The first part was geared more towards soft, weak, effeminate men in our society and that behavior being condemned in scripture. This week we dive into effeminacy in its fruition, namely homosexuality. This sin has been welcomed and invited in our evangelical Christian circles in America. The church has largely capitulated on this issue and terms such as "gay Christian" are now commonplace even in "reformed" circles. The scriptures are extremely clear on the topic although our culture would war against it. Christians cannot serve two masters. Thanks for listening! Key texts: Genesis 2:18,21-25; 19:1,4; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Matthew 15:19-20; Mark 10:5; Romans 1:24-27 Resources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArOQF4kadHA -> San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLGrh94mync -> A good critique and response https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZFCB9sduxQ -> Tim Keller (bad) take on homosexuality (specifically around the 3:00 mark) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RmpplTFDTY -> Jesus DID speak to homosexuality https://www.gotquestions.org/Jesus-homosexuality.html -> Read This https://www.gotquestions.org/homosexuality-Bible.html My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Effeminate Men
One sin that has flown under the radar for a considerable amount of time in our society is the sin of effeminacy in men. Today Bryce and I make a biblical case on why this is indeed a sin for a man to be effeminate and what effeminacy can look like in society. We walk through practical steps to overcome such sinfulness and how to be watchful against it in our own lives as men.  Zachary Garris : Masculine Christianity  San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus Video -> Biblical response to that video Key Texts: 1 Corinthians 6:9; 16:13, Deuteronomy 22:5, Matthew 11:7-9 My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Freedom in Christ
William Wallace: [Deliberately.] I am William Wallace, and I see a whole army of my countrymen, here, in defiance of Tyranny. You’ve come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? [Shouts of denial from the crowd.]  Blonde Soldier: Fight? Against that? No! [Members of the Scottish army shout in agreement.] We will run! And we will live.  William Wallace: Aye. Fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live...at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance – just one chance – to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives [With growing excitement] but they’ll never take our freedom!  This week Bryce and I explore the idea of freedom in the scriptures. Some of our favorite moments in film and history involve individuals fighting for freedom. Christ is the ultimate freedom fighter and is the model that all other freedom fighters, knowingly or unknowingly, model when they give their lives for the sake of freedom.   Definition of freedom 1: the quality or state of being free: such as a: the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action  Key Texts: John 8:32,35-36; Galatians 4:1-7,9,21-31; 5:1,13-15; Romans 6:15-23; 8:2,21; Revelation 12:10-12  Resources: https://www.ligonier.org/blog/why-do-christians-love-law/  My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Interview: Keagan, an Agnostic Atheist (part 3)
Today, on the For The King podcast, I am joined with one of my good friends. Keagan and I met at college during our undergraduate careers and we soon became good friends doing lots of random things together. Today Keagan and I continue on our discussion of our worldviews, mainly talking about the problem of evil in the world and the evils that many people charge Christians with. This episode is more of a debate/dialogue than the first part of this interview. Tune in and hear Keagan espouse his beliefs and I mine. We both take time to defend our views and press each other on some of the points that we disagree with the other. Thank you for listening! Please check out Keagan's podcast!

Man-stealing was a crime punishable by death, a command unheard of in the ancient near east, yet the bible institutes such a law. This topic was touched on in another episode, "the uniqueness of America".  Remember, the first society to every formally and universally outlaw slavery in legislation is the United States of America. This had nothing to do with our intelligence but EVERYTHING to do with us being a Christian nation. Atheism cannot be accounted for ever freeing any humans from any bondage ever. Thanks for listening!  Romans 6:16-23 “Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Website: forthekingpodcast.com Inquiries: forthekingpodcast@gmail.com

Religion & Science (Part 1)
This Wednesday, I dive into the ideas of a very famous agnostic/scientist/mathematician/philosopher named Bertrand Russell. Russell was a brilliant man with a great understanding of the natural world. Sadly, he decided that truth for him was that there was no good reason to believe that there is a God, or that the mind survives the death of the body. He was famous for his agnosticism and criticism of religion. He dealt mainly with Christianity but deals with the question of a monotheistic God in general. This book is a look into the history of religion and the onset of Christianity. I do not labor to pick out a lot of quotes from the book, but rather a few of the big ideas from each chapter and interact directly with those ideas. My goal here is to show the flaw in his logic and thinking that made him critical of religion. Nothing in the book would point one away from religion in my opinion. This episode is part 1 of a 2 part series I am doing on the book.  The Book -> Pick it up here Russell's views  Highlights of Russell's works John Lennox on Religion and Science Website : forthekingpodcast.com Inquiries to : forthekingpodcast@gmail.com Zach's Blog: https://speakingbasictruth.wordpress.com/                   Alex's Blog: https://roughdraftab.substack.com/people/27886653-alex-brown

Those of all ages, even young children can understand some of the great realities laid out in the bible. For one, there is a God, and God created ex nihilo (out of nothing). He made mankind in his own image, having dominion over the earth and he created them with two genders, male and female. Our culture would war against the bible, even starting in chapter one!

Joined with me this week is my pastor, Nate and an intern at the church Trent answering the question, Can war ever be justified? What is the Just-War Tradition? How have Christians thought about war historically? Can a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, be a soldier with a clear conscious? Why has the just war tradition been lost on so many Christians in the last 100 years? There are many questions to be asked on the topic of war for Christians! We answer all of these and hit on even more things about this precious ethical tradition throughout church history. Learn about the line of thinking that great thinkers like Augustine, Martin Luther, and many others have taken throughout church history. John Howard Yoder is the pacifist that is quoted many times in this book. The book we reviewed is found here -> https://www.amazon.com/War-Peace-Christianity-Questions-Perspective/dp/1433513838/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=peace+war+and+christianity&qid=1619618311&sr=8-2 Any inquiries can be sent to forthekingpodcast@gmail.com

What is the Good that God is Working For us?
What does Romans 8:26-30 mean? More specifically what exactly does Romans 8:28 mean? These verses are often misapplied in present day American Christianity and Bryce and I break down what exactly this text is getting at. What is the good that God works together for those that are called according to his purpose and love him? Prosperity? Lack of hardship? An easy life?  Key text: Romans 8 : 26-30 https://open.spotify.com/track/4MuDUGxerRIP7IiJzKfvM6?si=qF64gCD0TtateX3YkevjRQ -> Song I mentioned Send inquiries to forthekingpodcast@gmail.com

Conversations With An Ebullient Natural Law Theorist
How far can natural law stretch in society? What is the use of natural law to the Christian? Natural law are the laws that are self-evident to all humans as being endowed by their creator by virtue of their being made in God's image, however, this law is only as good as it matches up to revealed laws of God found in scripture. Christians should understand natural law but it has been lost to 21st century Christianity almost entirely. Hopefully this will help get you started in understanding such an important topic. Some application of natural law include, rights afforded to mankind, international law, laws of war, etc. Key Texts: Romans 1,2 and 10 Inquiries to forthekingpodcast@gmail.com

Irresistible Grace (TULIP part 4)
"The drawing is not like that of the executioner, who draws the thief up the ladder to the gallows; but is a gracious allurement, such as that of the man whom everybody loves, and to whom everybody willing goes." - Martin Luther God so calls as He allures; He does not force, but draw. The freedom of the will is not taken away, but the stubbornness of it is conquered. ‘Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power’ (Psalm 110:3). “All Things for Good” pg. 107  -Thomas Watson "No man ever believes with a true and saving faith unless God inclines his heart; and no man when God does incline his heart can refrain from believing".  -Blaise Pascal “How is it more for the glory of God to save man irresistibly, than to save him as a free agent, by such grace as he may either concur or resist?” - John Wesley My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.

Unconditional Election (TULIP part 2)
"At the very announcement of the text some will be ready to say, 'Why preach upon so profound a doctrine as election?' I answer, because it is in God’s word, and whatever is in the Word of God is to be preached." "I believe the doctrine of election, because I am quite certain that, if God had not chosen me, I should never have chosen Him; and I am sure He chose me before I was born, or else He never would have chosen me afterwards; and He must have elected me for reasons unknown to me, for I never could find in myself why He should have looked upon me with special love. So I am forced to accept that great Biblical doctrine." "Whatever may be said about the doctrine of election, it is written in the Word of God as with an iron pen, and there is no getting rid of it. To me, it is one of the sweetest and most blessed truths in the whole of revelation, and those who are afraid of it are so because they do not understand it. If they could but know that the Lord had chosen them, it would make their hearts dance for joy." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce.

Total Depravity (TULIP part 1)
“The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable reality but at the same time the most intellectually resisted fact.” - Malcolm Muggeridge “When you refuse to teach on the radical depravity of men, it is an impossibility that you bring glory to God, His Christ, and His cross, because the cross of Jesus Christ and the glory thereof is most magnified when it's placed in front of the backdrop of our depravity!” - Paul Washer My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.
