John Loeffler: Beyond the Semantic Games

Login to access this full program.

 

The media in the Westersphere seems focused on ratings and not on substance. They play semantic games instead of focusing on reality. In today’s boralogue, John looks at the reality going on in the world, with global geopolitics and the unfair, and sometimes completely absent, coverage that it gets. Free speech no matter where it’s at is in serious jeopardy. Complex issues are dealt with in clichés and when the clichés no longer work, force and violence is used instead. To best prepare for this, we must orient ourselves to reality before watching the semantic games that are being played.

There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week’s premium boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. Your words and deeds will be targeted, but eventually, even your silence will be labeled racism. John breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.

John Loeffler at Candlelight Fellowship

 

Why are we losing 60 to 80 percent of the youth in churches today? How has postmodernism, and Marxism subverted the minds of this generation? Veteran broadcast journalist and podcaster, John Loeffler, imparts shocking truths about what has been, what is, and what’s in store for today’s Christian. John delivers his speech titled: ‘Better to Light a Candle‘ from January 5th, 2020 at Candlelight Fellowship in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. candlelight.org

Worldview Wars – 4 Part Lecture Series (5 hours)

What is the nature of truth, and why can’t many Christians adequately defend their faith? Why and how is Christianity being marginalized in the public marketplace of ideas? Is there a carefully planned and executed agenda running to wipe out the Christian faith and those who assert absolute truth? We address all these questions and more in this five hour long, four part series.

John Loeffler analyzes the history, strategies, and weaknesses of the competing worldviews of the 19th and 20th century. Philosophers such as Rousseau, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Darwin, Nietzsche, Marx, and Dewey have radically altered western culture through postmodernism, values relativism and dialectical consensus. They have modern-day followers who are bent on destroying the very foundations of Western society.

Identify the moving parts of your worldview and gain insight into these opposing ideologies.  You have a mission to discern the truth. What is truth? Truth is simply: “that which pertains to reality“. Reality is that great equalizer and when reality becomes real there’s no room left for excuses.

Pastors of the Roundtable

Login to access this full program.

Freedom is not free. It is a fluke of history. And it must be maintained at all costs. In this week’s boralogue, John shows how our Constitution protects our freedoms by restraining government. The Supreme Court just handed down a ruling against civil asset forfeiture, thankfully upholding freedom and protecting citizens from unjust search and seizure. Where power and money goes, trouble grows.

MIke LeMayBrandon HolthausSteven GrantThe worldview battle in the West is beginning to affect the Church. Joining us to discuss this are Pastor Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, Pastor Brandon Holthaus (www.rockharborchurch.net), Senior Pastor of Rock Harbor Church in California, and Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Wisconsin and former host of Stand Up For The Truth.

Topics on the roundtable agenda this week: preparing the church for the worldview battle to come, unbiblical messages infiltrating the church as a whole as well as the pulpit specifically, and the need for a group of pastors to pray and encourage one another in these times of trouble in the Church.

Andrew LangerHealthcare and insurance are touchy subjects lately and one of the most important topics in the presidential race. Andrew Langer (www.instituteforliberty.org), President of the Institute for Liberty, joins us to discuss the impossibility of price controls and free, free, free stuff for everyone. He also offers solutions to the problem of high prices.

John finishes off the program this week with several stories, including inflation in Venezuela, the history of Marxism in Zimbabwe, and media falsehoods surrounding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

John’s quote of the week:
The whole idea of rights and freedom is to act as a restriction on government. It’s not anti-government. Our founders recognized that we needed government. But they also recognized that unrestrained power and the mischief that is innate in mankind will also produce tyranny. So the power had to be restrained and divided up so that it could be controlled and accountable.

There is no Extras segment for this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Battle of Worldviews

Login to access this full program.

Fresh from his speaking engagement at the Worldview Weekend Conference in Missouri last week, John recounts in his boralogue some of the conversations he had with people he encountered on the trip. In large measure, people are nice, inquisitive and just want to live happy lives. But life must have purpose and that purpose can be found in God. So let’s help each other get to the finish line, enjoying life along the way.

Israel has weathered a barrage of rocket attacks from Gaza in the past week. Are we getting accurate information about the skirmish? Author and Captain in the Israeli Defense Forces, Dan Gordon, joins us to examine the differences in narratives from both sides and the media’s manipulation of the news. He also looks at the real reason behind the attacks.

John and Steve take a brief look at the media and discuss whether they are finally starting to be fair to the Trump administration or if they are playing defense for the Democrat Party in advance of what could be a serious FISA abuse scandal in coming weeks.

When we have a battle of worldviews, what are the nuances and tactics from both sides? Kameel Majdali (www.tan.org.au), Director of Teach All Nations, discusses the stark differences between traditional Western values and the far left progressive worldview and how Christians should engage those with whom they disagree.

Finally we welcome Michael Peroutka (www.theamericanview.com), Co-Founder of the Institute on the Constitution, who shows how there is a battle between those who honor the Biblically-based founding documents of America and those who try to tear them down and promote a socialist Utopian society.

John’s quote of the week:
In order to achieve the utopian vision, the utopiocracy shall we say, has to know everything you’re thinking, doing, and saying because everyone has to march in lock step with its dictates. But of course for this to happen you only have to give up your freedom.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play first an interview John gave recently on KYMS, a local radio station in north Idaho, where he discusses media narratives, government influencing churches, and the martyred church. Plus, he gives a weather forecast for the greater Laodicea area! Then we play a brief appearance John made on Brannon Howse’s program from the Worldview Weekend conference in Missouri last weekend.
