The Constitutional Tapestry and its Champions in Modern America on Good News Friday

Today is Good News Friday! Embark on a journey through the intertwined pathways of faith and the American ethos. Prepare to be uplifted by tales that reaffirm the enduring legacy of our Constitution and the bold expressions of belief from NFL luminaries, whose courage in the face of societal pushback shines as a beacon for us all. As we traverse these stories, we celebrate the convictions that bolster our nation's values and applaud those heroes in sports and beyond who stand firm in their faith, as God is acknowledged in both victories and defeats. As we turn our attention to the political landscape, we look at Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s unwavering defense of Texas's economic bedrock against encroaching policies. Next up, we commend Mayor Eric Adams of New York City for his veto of the "How Many Stops" act, which would burden NYPD with the task of reporting the ethnicity of anyone and everyone spoken to by a police officer. This is a testament to applying common sense to governance and policing. Tune in for a conversation that is as rich in wisdom as it is in spirited dialogue, capturing the essence of what it means to navigate the crossroads of faith, culture, and politics.

Igniting the Flame of Biblical Citizenship Wk 8: Embracing Our Legacy, part 2

Discover the profound impact of biblical principles on American freedom as we bring you our eight-week course. We're reminding you that the torch of liberty is in your hands, ready to be kindled by your participation in elections, judicial appointments, and legal support groups. You'll see how biblical education becomes a beacon of hope, guiding us to uphold the spirit of our republic against the tide of negativity. With a call to embrace our freedom of religion, speech, and the press, we embody the spirit of Joshua and Caleb, optimistically facing challenges to preserve our cherished freedoms. Navigating the waters of constitutional amendments, we uncover the genius of our Founding Fathers in Article 5's design—a testament to their dedication to enduring and deliberate change. Only 27 amendments have weathered the storm of consensus out of more than 10,000 proposed, a ratio that commands our respect for the integrity of the system our founders created. As we consider the bipartisan nature of successful amendments, we gaze into the future at how we might fortify the Constitution, ensuring it remains a shield for our liberties against the encroachment of governmental overreach. Zooming in on the state level, we shed light on the oft-overlooked authority of state legislators—a direct conduit for the people's voice. Through our discussion, we realize the wisdom in the founders' decision to place such power in the hands of those closest to the citizenry. Reflecting on a simulated convention of states, we underscore the educational value of such events, reinforcing why the Article 5 constitutional pathway to amendment is not only safe but essential. Embracing Article 5, we stand firm in the conviction that our Constitution is meant to be actively engaged with, as a tool to be wielded responsibly. Support the show
