13. The Christian Ghetto: What is America, and How Should Christians Understand Their Relationship to America?

Because it is a large group and you might not be able to pick out voices, at the suggestion of listeners to the last round table I have endeavoured to keep track of who is speaking and when. Yes, you are hearing birds chirping. One of us was joining in from what looked like his back deck. Enjoy!

12. The Christian Ghetto: Discussing the "Regimevangelical" Phenomenon

I was joined by Ron Dodson, Josh Abbotoy, and midway through by Nate Fischer and The Black Horse to discuss the growing problem of Christian leadership bending itself to "the regime."

Increasingly, many of us in the pews are noticing that Christian leaders, many of whom cast themselves as defenders of Christian tradition and orthodoxy are adapting and changing their positions on various issues and practices in ways that are more compatible and harmonious with the progressive regime. We take time to discuss what is happening. We have a conversation over why it is happening and then...

74. Understanding the "Regimevangelical" Phenomenon

The political and social landscape is changing. Churches and their leaders are adapting, but not in the ways you might expect. Let's try to understand the phenomenon of the "regimevangelical."

73. Educating Boys: or Why Latin Disappeared

73. Educating Boys: or Why Latin Disappeared

It is no secret that schools have become a feminized environment. It wasn't always that way. There was a time where school was a form of contest and a rite of passage marking you a man.

11. The Christian Ghetto: A Conversation with Dr. Carlo Lancellotti

11. The Christian Ghetto: A Conversation with Dr. Carlo Lancellotti

Dr. Lancellotti has dedicated himself to translating the works of Italian philosopher Augusto del Noce into English. He was gracious enough to join me for the Ghetto's first guest appearance.

Long time readers of this Substack will know that I reference del Noce frequently. For those unfamiliar with Augusto del Noce, I would encourage you not just to listen to this interview, but go back and read my Del Noce pieces which all should be tagged “Augusto del Noce.” If you are looking to read him yourself, begin with The Crisis of Modernity as this is the most...

72. Boys Will Be Boys: Facing the Contest

This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit www.seekingthehiddenthing.com

Men today are lost because the technological and administrative world in which they find themselves gives them no markers to tell them they are men. In fact, to survive, they must become like women.

71. What Is a Man? Introducing the Idea of "Contest"

71. What Is a Man? Introducing the Idea of "Contest"

It takes little work to demonstrate that men are in trouble. The very idea of the "incel" cries out that something is wrong. To help understand this idea of "man" I turn to the writing of Walter Ong.

70. There Is No Fixing What Is Wrong

70. There Is No Fixing What Is Wrong

Anyone with a plan or a set of policies that will "fix" things is lying to themselves and to you. It's not a matter of "if" things go sideways, it's more a question of "when" and "how bad will it be?"

10. The Christian Ghetto: Christian Discipleship in an Age of Social Decay

10. The Christian Ghetto: Christian Discipleship in an Age of Social Decay

For many of us, this online space of politically minded Christians is just that: online. There are frequent discussions in our orbit regarding the whole process of instantiating the things we talk about into real lived spaces. Hoe do we make all of this real? The Christian tradition, going all the way back to Jesus himself, has engaged in this activity called “discipleship.” Sometimes more, sometimes less. Sometimes better, sometimes poorer. Among Jesus’ final recorded words is the command known at “The Great Commission.”

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has bee...

69. The Burden of Being Better

69. The Burden of Being Better

One of the most devastating influences upon the Christian faith has been egalitarianism. Christians trying to signal they are no better than anyone else has been ruinous for the faith.
