  • Why Modern Judaism is Not Biblical Judaism (John 5:45)

    14/04/2021 Duration: 27min

    The Judaism of the modern world is a religion separate and distinct from the Judaism of the ancient world, pre-Christ.  The former is an idolatrous faith that rejects Jesus while the latter anticipated the coming Messiah. The former is based on the traditions of men, the latter was based on the Word of God. Accordingly, in this episode, Dr. Sadaphal provides three reasons why modern Judaism is not biblical Judaism. Being aware of such distinctions will equip you with the clarity needed to cultivate a discerning, biblical worldview. Our Scripture focus will be John 5:45.

  • Fear Not (Matthew 10:28-31; I John 4:18)

    10/03/2021 Duration: 30min

    Many people today are afraid. They hear messages of fear and are encouraged to fear those around them. This fear is irrational because it is not grounded in reality and trumps faith in the Lord. Fear has even birthed a new faith: the cult of COVID, complete with its own code of morality and signals of virtue. With all this to consider, this begs the question: what does the Bible teach us on how the Christian is called to "fear not" and act Christ-like in an environment that is Christ-less? This episode provides clarity and meaningful answers. Our Scripture focus will be Matthew 10:28-31 and I John 4:18.

  • If God, Why Evil? (Isaiah 45:7)

    10/02/2021 Duration: 10min

    Since God is good, then how can He allow evil to exist? Since God is sovereign, is it inescapable to conclude that the ultimate cause of evil rests in the Lord? "If God, why evil?" is one the the most difficult questions to wrestle with. Yet, God's Word provides clarity and meaningful answers. Our Scripture focus will be Isaiah 45:7.

  • Contra Caesar II: Live Not by Lies (Romans 13:1-7)

    06/01/2021 Duration: 51min

    Part I searched for a biblical answer to, "When is it permissible for the Christian to disobey civil authorities?" Part II explores why Christians may come to different conclusions as to when (or if) it is biblically permissible for the Christian to act contra Caesar or against the State. The possible answers to this inquiry are numerous, but one response is that many Christians may uncritically obey Caesar because their idea of secular authority comes from the world, not the Bible. Subsequently, this episode searches the Scriptures to develop a biblical perspective on what authority looks like and how it ideally operates in reality. This examination is necessary cognizant that in the West, we are facing the rise of "soft totalitarianism" or a godless form of total State control that seeks to root out the Christian faith under the guise of helping and healing. Our Scripture focus will be Romans 13:1-7. As mentioned in this episode: Live Not by Lies (2020) by Rod Dreher and Live Not by Lies (1974) by

  • True Freedom

    04/11/2020 Duration: 05min

    In the modern West, "freedom" is defined based upon a person's ability to choose between alternatives. Yet biblically speaking, "freedom" is not defined in terms of man, it is defined in terms of God. In this episode, we will analyze what true (biblical) freedom is.

  • The Three Universal Laws of Human Nature (Genesis 3)

    16/09/2020 Duration: 13min

    Human beings are certainly very different when comparing them individually. Yet, in some respects human beings are much alike. In this episode, we will unpack what Genesis 3 has to tell us about ourselves: that there are three universal laws of human nature that regulate a person's self-opinion. Know the laws and know yourself, know the laws and know others, but most importantly, know the laws and how they direct us all to Christ. Our Scripture focus will be Genesis 3.

  • Antonio Gramsci and the Narrative Behind the Narratives

    09/09/2020 Duration: 29min

    Many adjectives can be used to describe the year that 2020 has been, but one that comes close to capturing the essence of it all is "disruptive." The world has been disrupted on many different levels and it would seem as if many different things are collapsing simultaneously. But, what if there was a big, central narrative that animated all the diverse and chaotic smaller narratives? What if I told you nearly 100 years ago, a man by the name of Antonio Gramsci developed an ideological strategy to essentially destroy Western civilization by going to war against biblical Christianity and replacing it with a Satanic false religion? What if I told you we are seeing that war play out before our very eyes and the only way to know and prepare for what's coming next is to know what the endgame is? This is an episode of WCSK that you cannot miss. Our Scripture focus will be Psalm 2.

  • Facts and Truth: What's the Difference? (John 18:38)

    02/09/2020 Duration: 15min

    Facts and truth are often characterized as being in opposition to one another. Especially in the domain of secular materialism, science is touted as being able to objectively verify all the "facts," whereas what is true is a matter of subjective opinion. What does the Bible have to say about the matter? In this episode learn that although there may be a distinction between facts and truth there can never be a separation. Our Scripture focus will be John 18:38.
