God’s Revelation in Nature

by Joe Boot and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

October 20, 2021

The biblical starting point for all human activity – including academic reflection – is the character of God as revealed in the Bible, the incarnate Son, and the created world. For man to begin with anything else is necessarily to respond in an idolatrous fashion.

 

How Do We Encounter Reality?

by Joe Boot and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

October 13, 2021

Contrary to unbelieving philosophy which places some aspect of human experience on the throne of the universe, and contrary to earlier Christian philosophy which seeks to elevate theology above all other spheres of science, is the Reformational view. On this view, the self-attesting revealed Word of God is the basis for every subsequent theory about the universe.

 

How Does the World Hold Together?

by Joe Boot and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

October 6, 2021

This episode introduces the idea that aspects of reality hang together like pearls on a thread, and explains how philosophical assumptions inform and direct our everyday activities.

 

How do we Think Christianly

by Joe Boot and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

September 29, 2021

A distinctly Christian way of thinking means returning to the Word of God as the source of all true knowledge and insight, and building an understanding of the world from that foundation. It is our starting point that makes all the difference.

 

Making Sense of Reality

by Joe Boot and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

September 22, 2021 | Psalms 

Season Five of the Podcast for Cultural Reformation kicks off with a brief review of the Canadian Federal election and begins a discussion that we will develop throughout this season on how and why a fully formed Christian worldview accounts for reality, even in the midst of tumultuous cultural circumstances.

 

The Story of the Gospel in Art

by Jeremy Bundy and Marcus Pittman and Nathan Oblak and Ryan Eras

September 15, 2021

On this episode of the Podcast for Cultural Reformation, Marcus Pittman describes the present state of Christian representation in mainstream arts and entertainment, and what he is doing to improve it. We discuss the Christian calling to be the best storytellers, because the Christian story is the greatest story in the world.

 

Rousseau and the Makings of the Utopian Power State

by Joe Boot

September 8, 2021

Christian orthodoxy is antithetical to utopian illusions. Since God governs history, the Christian, in faith, obedience, and confidence, moves toward God’s predestined future. The triune, sovereign Lord, who by His providence and power sustains all things at every moment, is the one in whom the Christian trusts.

 

The Colour of Death and the Law of Life, Part 2

by Joe Boot

September 1, 2021

In order to achieve the visions of liberation and environmental justice it is necessary to shape the hearts and minds of the rising generation. One of the main planks in the radical environmentalist platform is to ensure the children have been indoctrinated regarding the ‘facts’ about climate change and understand their own negative impact on the earth as analogous to a virus infecting a host.

 

The Colour of Death and the Law of Life, Part 1

by Joe Boot

August 25, 2021

Throughout the green movement, many are promoting a culture of death in the name of life, health and eco-justice. Whereas the God of Scripture says, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it”, and tells us that children are a heritage and reward from Him, this new religion tells us that children are a threat to planetary life and large families a disease.

 

Justice, Race, and Revolution, Part 2

by Joe Boot

August 18, 2021

The liberating identity of those in the covenant of grace transcends skin color and ethnic origin and refuses to look at the world in terms of us and them, oppressors versus oppressed, but grasps all reality in light of our Creation, Fall, and Redemption as a human race.

 

Justice, Race, and Revolution, Part 1

by Joe Boot

August 11, 2021

The idea of structural oppression and the need to be liberated from it is not new. It is a religious motive, with its own doctrine of God, man, sin, and redemption. It has taken specific aim at the evisceration of Christianized culture, and it has recurred again and again, especially since the French Revolution.

 

The Constant Gardener

by Joe Boot

August 4, 2021

When it comes to human culture, the question is not whether we will shape culture, but what kind of culture will we cultivate. That is to say, as image-bearers of God, we are inescapably cultural creatures. We have been placed in this world as in a garden, to tend, develop and care for it.
