VFTB 190: Transhumanism and Anime

Battle angelTHEOLOGY IS far too important to learn from fiction, but sadly, that’s how far too many of us do it. Psychologists know that we absorb ideas presented as compelling stories more easily than we do when they’re presented as fact.

One of the most popular forms of entertainment for teens and young adults is anime, Japanese animation. Pop culture critic Taylor Kent, host of the podcast Snark Infested Waters and a staff member on a pair of anime fan conventions in the Twin Cities, discusses the appeal of anime, the transhumanist and theological themes common in the genre, and how those concepts might influence fans without a solid grounding in faith.

Also: Closing comments on the violence in Ferguson, Missouri sparked by the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9, 2014. Here is the link to a cell phone video shot minutes after the shooting that inadvertently captured a conversation with a witness – a description of the shooting that puts a different spin on the event than the one that’s been reported by the media all week.

VFTB at Pikes Peak: Carl Teichrib – Rebuilding Babel

Carl Teichrib

Carl Teichrib

IT’S NOT paranoia if they really are out to get you. And it’s clear that there is an agenda to force a change on us to make us subjects of a global government, whether we want it or not.

Carl Teichrib, editor of the excellent monthly online journal Forcing Change, has been researching and documenting the goals and activities of globalists for over a decade. He discusses the meeting that compelled him to pursue his research, the five thousand year legacy of Nimrod, and the utopian pursuit of world unity — a modern attempt to build the Tower of Babel.

This is one of a series of interviews that will be included with the DVD set from the 2014 Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit. To order the set, see Prophecy in the News.

VFTB 189: Quantum Creation

Quantum CreationTHE NEW Age movement seems to have claimed quantum physics for its own. Things like Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance” are held up as proof that the universe is one and that we can manipulate it with the power of our minds.

Josh Peck, founder of Ministudy Ministry and host of The Sharpening podcast, offers as a rebuttal his new book Quantum Creation: Does the Supernatural Lurk in the Fourth Dimension? Josh explores the strange world of quarks, bosons, and branes, and presents evidence that God, rather than being one with His creation, is separate and outside of it — but that His interactions with it are truly mind-boggling and awesome.
