Unofficial Podcast Ep. 24

Sorry about the delay, guys! We had a pretty busy weekend, so we weren't able to produce the episode as early as we had hoped. However, we are back again to review the latest episodes, "Wooing Wooton" and "Something Significant". Also, we update ya'll on the writing contest, including details on an extension!

  1. I think the hierachy goes:


    So above everything, we should honor God; we always try to do this while honoring the others as well, but if one is faced with the decision to obey either God or parents, the decision should always be to follow God. Of course Grady didn't believe in God, so one could say that he was justified, but I think not. If he doesn't believe in God or the Bible, why would he even obey his parents? I think he was just being selfish and didn't want to lose one of the only things he had, and I don't really blame him, but in the long run, his choice of accepting God would be a better one than rejecting it to keep his mom. Was he justified? Not the way I see it.

  2. You make a valid point there. If Grady doesn't believe in God or the Bible, then he has no moral basis for obeying his mom in the first place. On the other hand, at a more elementary level, Grady is following the person who he trusts the most. Since he is only 8-10 years old, he probably isn't apt to consider the philosophical ramifications of his actions. (:

  3. I loved the new intro! And the clips played throughout the podcast. Very innovative.

  4. I respect those non-believers who use logic as their basis for their actions, since if you AREN'T a Christian nearly any attempt to use a morals-based life approach ends in strange philosophers' corners and futility.

    Having said that, Grady's actions seem to me to be a very good demonstration of Character. Not moral fiber, not Christian values, but Character... acting consistantly with your convictions in all areas whether you are in public or private. He is presented with a dillemma and he makes a logical choice and isn't going to pretend to be something that he doesn't believe. (Yet)
