Secular Thought And Where It Leads with Arno Fourie

Well I slept early Sunday after a tiring day of ministry!  So here’s a post that’s later than usual!

Here is an interview/podcast with two brothers that I love.  It is from Rooted In Revelation Podcast (Facebook page here).  It is a podcast that touch on theology, apologetics and Christian living.  This is hosted by Nate Burns.

I wanted to share one of the shows.  This is an interview with Arno Fourie.  I’m encouraged to see Arno have an evangelistic zeal and courage and his applied apologetics all over social media. If you are wondering about his accent, he’s a South African living in Australia.  That’s pretty cool!

What was the topic? The two had a conversation about secular thought and where it leads.

ISAF afghanistan

The news the last few days that have grabbed my attention is the Taliban take over of Afghanistan including entering into its Capital.  I think its safe to say it caught the US and the world by surprise.  The United States is trying to evacuate its citizens and have sent thousands of Marines and Army soldiers to help with that.  

These appear to be the first footage of the Marines arriving (I haven’t found anything else and I put some effort searching): 

There’s always a certain bounce with Marines’ movement. As I looked I can’t help but to think about how 70 percent of enlisted marines are 24 and younger with the bulk joining right out of high school which means most of these Marines are young enough to be the sons of the first wave of Marines that entered Afghanistan nearly 20 years ago.
