To get started without our extra co-host, the Wild Moos, who didn’t answer the
hotline in the Man Cave, we talk about a timely topic.
What’s the deal with freedom of the press? Are reporters right to complain the
First Amendment is being breached?
We talk a little about the ban that President Trump placed on certain news
agencies, but allowed others. Is this breaking the freedom of the press, and
the right of free speech?
Dumb News: There really isn’t much worth making a whole quiz about. With all
the politicians in my dumb news feed, it might as well be the real news. Rather
than droning on, check out how some real drones made the news.
Actually, we have two little topics, but they go along together.
In examining 2 Corinthians 6:6-7, we pull the focus out a little to see these
verses in context. The apostle Paul is listing his credentials, and what makes
the strongest description of what a true apostle looks like.
Sure, there’s the promise of the truth of God at the center, but it comes from
the experience of the list of hardships, trials, tribulations, persecutions,
and more all wrapped around it.
We discuss the difference between a hardship, and the kind of trials that James
says we should count as joy. Both are important in being a believable and
credible ambassador for Christ.
Based on being an Ambassador, and some concepts from the book, Tactics, by Greg
Koukl, Nathan shares the Ambassadors creed from the book. It also appears on
the web page at Stand to Reason.
2 Corinthians 5:20 (ESV)
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ,
God making his appeal through us.
We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
Important qualities of being an Ambassador include:
Knowledge: the who, what, when, where, and how things are.
Wisdom: Taking to heart. Exploring why things are.
Character: Using our ambassador powers for good. Not deceit or trickery.
