Dustin was gone this week, but somehow we managed to keep the humor for the first segment. Jovan Mackenzy (Von Frasier), creator of the original #DatPostmil intro song, joined us to confront our Batman blasphemies from Episode 10. We took his rebuke into consideration and charged forward with some meatier eschatological discourse. In the second segment, we discussed the four primary views concerning the millennium of Revelation 20 (DispensationalismHistoric PremillennialismAmillennialism, and Postmillennialism) as well as the origins and history behind those terms. After that we discussed the various views concerning the New Testament use of the Greek term Parousia—the “coming” of Christ. We wrapped it all up in the last segment with a brief synopsis of the four basic interpretive frameworks for New Testament prophetic literature (FuturismPreterismHistoricismIdealism) and how they relate to the four primary views on the millennium!

Like scavengers in a post-apocalyptic world looking for cans of something edible, the WVM podcast team stumbles across surprising worldview nuggets as we analyze some startlingly good storytelling from the AMC channel. It’s amazing how a world full of undead flesh-eaters can so easily set up moral dilemmas and questions of sovereignty. When civilization crumbles into dust and ruin, does the notion and right and wrong crumble with it? What happens when shear survival becomes the only over-riding ethical injunction?

Bill visits with the godfather of preppers, the popular Patriot Series author James Wesley, Rawles. They get very tactical and discus practical considerations: food, energy, communication, etc. for surviving persecution and/or social collapse that might be part of the coming judgment of God.

Wow. That’s all I can say about this episode of #DatPostmil Podcast. We asked Marcus Pittman (of Crown Rights and Apologia Studios) to join us, and he brought along fellow Crown Rights artist IV Conerly! The conversation was lighthearted and fun, and went from Batman vs. Superman to Christians producing bad art; even to whether (#DatPostmil) Christians should be eating meat! Check it out, you won’t be sorry!

Here are some recommended links from our conversation:

We strap on some bib overalls, give each other bowl haircuts, and call Dad by his first name like we ain’t really related, on our way to dissecting the worldview message being preached in this Academy Award winning snooze-fest starring Gregory Peck. There’s also a small appearance by a very young Robert Duvall. For those keeping score, our last episode also featured a young Duvall. So we’re on a small roll with Duvall, which must end here for the sake of sanity.

It takes a lot of grit to dissect a John Wayne classic, but we’re just the band of varmints to do it. Not quite as dangerous as traveling into the Indian Territories in search of a killer, granted, but tricky nonetheless. We avoided a Glenn Campbell spanking on the one hand, and a deadly snake pit on the other to bring you a worldview critique that’s tougher ‘n boot leather.
