As the world reels from the butchery that triggered the current crisis in the Middle East, it’s tough to process the actions themselves and the right way forward.
Even the supposedly bare facts of the situation depend on the lens you are looking at them through.
Is America headed for a recession?
What we might see in the light of geopolitical conflict will be very different from what we see on the personal level of ordinary working-class people whose lives are blown apart on BOTH sides of this conflict through no fault of their own.
This week, Doug and Rich sit down and wrestle through how to thread the needle with a response that accepts the hard pragmatic realities of a conflict far older than America itself, recognizes the difficulty of dealing with a hardened terrorist organization, but still embraces the gospel realities of viewing the humanity of suffering people even when — or maybe especially when — their ideas are in direct conflict with your own.

While you’re at it, here’s Doug’s latest book:
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
