What to Anticipate with the Biden Inauguration | Iran’s Latest Nuclear Ambitions and China’s Continued Persecutions
Where in the Word are You Today?
Some days we need real perspective. On those days I like to go to the bookends of the Bible. All the way to the beginning and then yes, skipping ahead to the very end – when it all begins again.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Colossians 1 and the preeminence of Christ
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by[f] him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Nick joins us again and talks with Carmen in anticipation of the inauguration. They also discuss the disrupted March For Life walk in D.C., some Pew Research measuring American trends and even an fun article surrounding Valentine’s Day.

Iran has begun to produce uranium metal, the U.S. is imposing a ban on some Chinese products, Uganda had an election and President-Elect Biden may have pressure on his foreign policies as bad actors from around the world test his new administration. Luke and Carmen weigh in on these issues, bringing the mind of Christ to bear on the matters of the day.
