Show Notes

  • A report from EU diplomats accuses Israel of using archaeology as a political weapon against Palestinians. They say the Jews are trying to “modify the historical narrative”—when the truth is that archaeology is proving what is true historically. What does this tell you about Europe’s potential role as a peace moderator?
  • The Swedish government is urging its citizens to prepare for war, and several East European countries are bracing for conflict, specifically with an aggressive Russia. This points to biblical prophecies of a massive coming conflict between these two.
  • We’ll also talk about people stealing from self-checkout lanes at grocery stores, a school district in Minnesota that is implementing a curriculum based around racial equity, and I’ll conclude with a few words about what happens when you turn a bunch of fifth graders loose on a playground with no supervision!
