  1. Really enjoyed the interview Joel. Your questions and Professor Hughes’ responses gave me a lot to think about.

      Thanks, PJ. I thought the book was well placed in my reading plan for various reasons. It has to be one of the most enjoyable books on this subject that I have read. I think it is timely for us all – especially given the recent developments that both you and I have covered just this week.

  2. The Nobel Prize Committee set a new standard for groups like the Motion Picture Academy, in that an Oscar no longer requires the winner to give a great performance, but intend to give one. The Nobel Prize was once given to people who do something great; while today just saying one wants to do something great is enough to win. The Nobel Prize Committee is trying to shape future reality by recognizing intent to do something they admire, such as equalizing America with the third world. The Oscars could be awarded to actors who never perform, but tell others they would like to. Obama, then, should also be given an Oscar too. Being a Christian, then, need not be supported by following Jesus but just claiming one is a Christian. See THE CHANGING FACE OF DEMOCRATS (Amazon.com) as well as http://www.claysamerica.com

  3. The seeds of American trandition rest in rebellion, the Boston Tea Party, and independence. These who principles violate the very essense of “kingdom of God”. Rather submission to the King’s authority and totaly dependence upon His will are foundational. Yes, God has used America to help Israel and world missions and for that we are grateful. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not from this world” and should always stand above any nationalistic theme. The kingdom should, however, influence every area of our lives, including government, education, arts and science, media and business. Living out the kingdom daily means helping the underprivilieged, caring about social justice, but also promoting personal responsibility, integrity and accountability.
