  • After a recent chemical weapons attack, France spearheaded punitive strikes in Syria. What is France’s motive in getting involved militarily in this Middle Eastern country? The answer has biblically prophetic implications.
  • Policemen killing black men tend to receive heavy publicity in mainstream headlines. Receiving less attention, though, are cases like the recent one in Trenton, Florida, where two policemen were ambushed and shot to death in their car while parked at a restaurant.
  • The makers of social media and other technology are warning that their products are addictive, and we need to be careful how we use them. We’ll talk about how to reclaim the attention and time that you are losing to these technologies.
  • And we’ll look at a basic, fundamental reason why we are seeing a constitutional crisis in America today.
