More than anything, this show was occasioned by Jeff re-watching the Robert Redford film Quiz Show. This is a great movie that most Christians have overlooked, which caused Jeff and Bill to want to tell listeners about other great movies that are worthy of their contemplation and meditation. Remember, Philippians 4:8 makes it clear that staying away from the bad movies is not enough–we should be actively seeking out the true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. With this in mind, Jeff and Bill recommend a few movies–and promise to recommend many more in shows to come.

A former Worldview student asks hosts Jeff and Bill about stories with magic in them. If Christians reject Harry Potter because the story involves magic and the occult, shouldn’t they shun Lord of the Rings and Narnia as well? Is it ever appropriate for Christians to read fantasy? Jeff is adamant that it is (as were Chesterton, Tolkien and Lewis), while Bill digs in his heels.
Hosts Jeff Baldwin and Bill Jack finish their discussion of legal immigration, reminding listeners that the prevailing view of immigrants as drains upon our natural resources is grounded in the thinking of Jeremy Bentham and Thomas Malthus, not in scripture. Christians should understand that wealth is ultimately a creation of the human mind, and that people committed to using their economic freedom responsibly are always a blessing.
