Shots rang out. People shouted. Victim’s cried. America was left asking the question, “how has our country come to this?” Today on your Political review Nathan and Jon talk through the act of evil that occurred Sunday night Oct/1/2017 in Las Vegas. They give you the details of what transpired and delve into the universal truth of how our country has gotten to this point.
In today’s age, with what’s being taught in our #schools about the origin of #life can we #honestly say that #human beings are of any #value? If we all #evolved from pond scum what right do you have to say that your life has any #meaning or #purpose? If #God didn’t create us or give us value is there #truly any meaning to what we do beyond the #subjective and the #temporary?
I understand, many of those questions are #uncomfortable. But they must be thought through nonetheless. In today’s episode I try to talk through those questions and expose the fact that if evolution and #atheism is true then our life is #worthless and #meaningless. However, if #Christianity is true our lives are #priceless and of the upmost #importance.

Political Review Episode
Today I am joined by my dear friend Pastor Syed. Syed is the author of the book “Try Me, I’m Jesus” as well as the head of the Isa for Muslims Ministry. Today he comes on the program to share with us how Jesus took him from being a devout Muslim to a devout Christian who now evangelizes to Muslims. It’s a testimony of heartache and triumph.
Try me, I’m Jesus
Was smoking my Gandalf pipe outside while pondering, love your neighbor, the Good Samaritan parable (Lk 10:25-37), and Muslim refugees. I realized something intriguing. The Good Samaritan didn’t bring the beaten Jew to his own home or community, he brought him to an inn. Probably because he didn’t know if the man was good or bad.
Why is this important or relevant to the Muslim refugees? It’s is of the upmost importance because Christians use “love your neighbor” as a reason for bringing Muslim refugees to our country. However, within the context of scripture that application is terribly misguided. It is misguided for two main reasons.
1: A Jew and Samaritan were both still living within the Roman Empire.
-This is important because they both were helping fellow countrymen. It would be similar to a Texan helping a Californian. Different statesman, different political beliefs, both Americans. Hermetically this passage cannot be used to push the agenda of bringing Muslim refugees to America.
2: The Samaritan took the beaten Jew to an inn, not his home.
-The Samaritan brings the man to a safe place away from himself and family.
Love your neighbor, and, the Good Samaritan parable cannot correctly be applied to the Muslim refugees. That is not to say we cannot glean wisdom from this passage. The Samaritan brought the man to an inn. If America chooses to do something about the refugees it would be wise to set up a safe zone within Syria for the refugees to live as charities give them aid. That is the wisdom that could be applied from this ancient text to this modern situation.
