In the first part of today’s episode, Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller talks about the temptation of Jesus by the devil in the wilderness in Matthew 4, including practicing reading the scriptures with imagination, and how temptation will be gone in the resurrection. Then, Pastor Warren Graff joins in to talk about understanding the world around us in this age of secularism and materialism and how it denies the day of judgment, the idea that people innately know there’s a last day because of how we build infrastructure and give gifts, and how guilt plays into all of this.
