In this week's episode, headmaster Alvaro de Vicente helps us develop a philosophy of technology. Building off previous conversations on The Forum with Cal Newport, Mr. de Vicente takes a deep dive into the topic of smartphones. In particular, he helps us answer the following questions: How can parents discern if a smartphone would be beneficial for their son? When is the right time to entrust him with this powerful tool? Under what circumstances? Will waiting to give your son a smartphone render him ill-prepared for college and beyond? More provocatively, is it correct to assume that holding off on the smartphone is merely delaying the inevitable? As Mr. de Vicente explains, parents' discussions of these questions ought principally to consider their son's level of self-mastery. Like any tool, if a smartphone is to be of help rather than harm, the user must be prepared to use it and not be used by it. On a practical level, the two basic questions to be asked are: What are my son's current needs? Can my son master this piece of technology? To answer the first question, Mr. de Vicente suggests that parents consider: The purposes of technology: communication, information, organization, and entertainment. The possible (objective) needs of the boy: calling, texting, GPS. What tool--whether a smartphone, flip-phone, or some other device--will satisfy the specific needs without being detrimental to the boy's ultimate good. In order to answer the third point, it is helpful to look at whether a boy has demonstrated self-mastery in the following areas: Property: clothes, school materials, sports equipment. Spaces: room, bed, closet, desk. Time: morning and evening routines, weekends and holidays. Urges: speaking, food, desire to have a phone. While no-one is perfect, if a child has not displayed a certain level of self-mastery in these areas of his life, it will be hard for him to use a smartphone well. Indeed, it is far easier for a boy to put a shirt on a hanger or make use of a calendar than it is for him to resist the algorithms of technologies whose aim it is for him to be unable to. If he does not do the former, one ought not assume he will do the latter. In the end, using smartphones well is not a matter of learning how to navigate technology per se, which is a skill that is not learned with much difficulty. It is, rather, a matter of developing self-mastery, which is a virtue that requires both time and perhaps more than little toil. Show Highlights How to develop a personal philosophy of technology In general, what is a good approach to smartphones? Questions parents should ask themselves when deciding whether their child needs (and is ready for) a smartphone What are the purposes of a phone? Are all needs equal? How do you know if your child is capable of mastering a smartphone? What parents can do to limit bad uses of technology Does a high schooler need a smartphone in order to be prepared for college? Is there a right age to give your child a smartphone? Challenge the assumption that the smartphone is inevitable for everyone Some alternative phones to the traditional smartphone What to do if a parent has mistakenly given their child a smartphone Also from The Forum Digital Minimalism: Creating a Philosophy of Personal Technology Use Digital Minimalism: Creating a Philosophy of Personal Technology Use, Part II

KIB 326 – The Bible, Discernment, and Understanding Kingdom Intelligence Briefing As the days unfold before us, discernment will become a daily necessity. Discernment is not suspicion nor based on mental prowess. Discernment is spiritual and can only be developed through the study of the Word and time in prayer. It is so easy to get overwhelmed at current events that we forget our need for the Word and prayer. Yet, this is where the Holy Spirit is calling us. The Remnant is answering this call so that discernment and understanding will become our constant companions. Dr. Michael Lake is the Chancellor and Founder of Biblical Life College and Seminary. He is the author of the best-selling books, The Shinar Directive: Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition, The Sheeriyth Imperative: Empowering the Remnant to Overcome the Gates of Hell, and the newly released, The Kingdom Priesthood. Dr. Lake is a popular speaker at national Christian conferences and is a frequent guest on many Christian TV and radio/podcast programs in North America. Mary Lou Lake has worked side by side with her husband in ministry for over 35 years and is the author of the book What Witches Don't Want Christians to Know - Expanded Edition.
Stephen and Eric list three practical methods of discerning God's guidance when making decision, either big or small. They also remind listeners that God is your friend and promises to guide each follower of Jesus. (Reference: "What's Your Decision?" by J Michael Sparough and Tim Hipskind, chapters 9-11)
We discuss modern church effectiveness and methodology, why many American evangelical churches operate more like a business than a ministry. Pastors resemble CEOs rather than watchmen, shepherds, and evangelists. Why? We look briefly at Rick Warren and the seeker-sensitive church growth movement and some of its fruit, as well as a few recent headlines. Daily podcast, relevant articles on issues pertaining to Christians and more can be found on Stand Up For The Truth.

Text: Luke 12:54-56 Series: “The Church Your New Pastor Deserves” Someone has said that one of the hardest things to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn. I would have to say that I agree wholeheartedly with that statement, given how so many decisions we find ourselves facing in life can either make us or break us, depending of course on how those decisions work out. That's because every decision involves some type of risk. “Do I seize this opportunity, or do I wait for a better one to come along?” “Do I go in this direction, or do I stay put, content with where things stand today?” “Do I change my approach, or do I continue to embrace the status quo?” All these decisions require us to project life beyond the present and to make some prediction as to their consequences. But since we cannot possibly know every eventuality, we make the best decisions we can and then we live with the results. However, as people of faith we approach our decisions in a different way, do we not? We believe that while none of us knows the future, God does. God knows everything about the future holds because God holds the future, and so nothing about tomorrow ever escapes Him. Why, then, would any person of faith ever think about taking a step into the unknown without first seeking God? That's precisely the question that Jesus was posing to the crowd that had been listening in on what he had been teaching his disciples. As we have seen, this section of Luke's Gospel recounts Jesus final instructions to the twelve. As God Incarnate, Jesus knows what his future holds, and for him it is cross-shaped. Consequently, he has made the decision to embrace the cross because of the Spirit's leadership in his own life. Jesus knows as well that this crowd that has been listening in will in due time face a decision of their own. “Will they embrace Jesus as God's Messiah, or will they reject him as a pretender?” He worries that they will make their decision like they do every other decision in life – by instinct or impulse, neither of which represents a heart that is open to God. So, Jesus offers them a parable that might jar them out of their misplaced confidence and call them to trust in God. “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It's going to rain,' and so it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It's going to be hot,' and it is.” Jesus knew that even though none in the crowd had a degree in meteorology, they could draw on their vast experience of seeing how clouds forming over the Mediterranean always meant impending rain and strong winds from the Arabian desert unbearable heat. But just when the crowds most likely thought Jesus would be complementing them for their intelligence, he instead chides them for their false faith. In particular, Jesus chides them for not humbling themselves before God, given how they lack the devotion to recognize what God has been doing in him, preferring instead to proceed into the future based on their own best judgment instead of following in Jesus' way. “You hypocrites (you play actors)! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time?” What Jesus wants the crowd to understand is that their problem is not so much that they lack the ability to make projections of what lies ahead based on what they recognize in the present moment; it's their failure to factor in the way that Jesus represents the bridge toward God's future. Instead of crossing the bridge between where they are and where God would have them to be, they are burning it through their cluelessness about Jesus so that they will not be able to enjoy the fullness of the Kingdom that Jesus will be bringing to bear upon the earth. How easy it is for us to read such passages and turn our noses up at the ignorance of the crowd that rejected Jesus in his day. “How could they have missed the significance of Jesus?” we ask ourselves. “How could they not have looked to him and placed their trust in him?” We should be more careful. After all, we pride ourselves far too much on our ability to make good decisions, but when it comes to the things of God and how we might be a part of that Kingdom work, it's essential that we follow the lead of the Spirit instead of following our instincts, our impulses, or even our best judgment. In short, we do best when as we are faced with where to go into the future, we do so by pursuing a process of discernment instead of merely making what we hope is a good decision. So, what is the difference, you ask, between discernment and decision? They both seem to involve the same thing. Actually, they don't. Decisions are made based on past experience. Discernment is an awareness that comes to us as we attempt to see everything in light of God's presence and God's purpose in every circumstance and situation in life. Decisions can be made quickly, and sometimes circumstances require that we make them quickly. But discernment takes a lot longer, especially in light of how with discernment we're not operating on our timetables or even the world's timetables. We're operating on God's timetable. And God never seems to be in as much of a rush as we are to decide a matter. For that reason, discernment is not an easy practice. I remember in one church I served how the congregation was split down the middle when I arrived over whether to relocate the church. Now, that's a major decision. Some argued that the church had no future in its present location; others countered that the location was an historic one and too many memories were connected to that place to leave it behind. I hadn't been there two weeks before I was being bombarded with questions on my position, and my answer may have seemed to be naïve to all of them, but it was truly my heart. “I don't care where we do church; I just want to do church as God leads us to do church. Here or some other place, it matters not to me.” Long story short, it took ten years for us to come to God's resolution. And it wasn't that we simply sat on our hands during that period of time. We did our due diligence. We had conversations with property owners and city officials. We analyzed demographics and studied reports of how other congregations had successfully relocated their facilities. And God shut every door. So, when the time came for us to make the decision to stay put as a church and address our facility challenges there, everyone was on the same page, because everyone knew that we had sought God instead of following our own instincts. Over the course of the coming years, this church will be facing similar decisions, certainly not in terms of relocation but rather in terms of staffing and ministry priorities and facility upgrades. Past experience will be helpful, but in order to move in a direction that aligns best with God's purposes for Mountain Brook Baptist Church, we will do well to take whatever time is necessary to understand what God is doing all around us that as a community of faith we might offer the best witness to the good news of Jesus Christ. Otherwise, we may end up burning bridges that God's Spirit is calling us to cross. I like the way Ilio Delio, the Franciscan nun, has explained it. “God is doing new things, Jesus proclaimed. But only those with new minds and new hearts can see a new world breaking through the cracks of the old” (The Hours of the Universe, p.79.) Or might we even say that God is burning down old bridges and building new ones to cross over? Then let us pray for God to give us new minds and new hearts that we might better discern His new thing. Because when that transformation happens and our minds and hearts are made new, then our decisions won't be ones we make on our own. They will instead be decisions God leads us to make so that our faith will not be in any way hypocritical, but genuine and authentic, as we see how God is at work in our midst and join Him in it, today, tomorrow, and forevermore. Luke 12:54-56

In this podcast I explore some of what neuroscience tells us about how the brain works in regards to objectifying other people in harmful ways. If you aspire to cultivate self-kindness as well as sweep out harmful thoughts of racism, homophobia, sexism, etc. from your mind, this may offer some useful wisdom. There are many reasons that calming the instincts is the most profound enlightened self-interest. And, knowing why and how your mind might believe crazy, hurtful things and how to reprogram it when that happens is a valuable part of the operating manual they probably didn't give you in school.

I'm concerned that millions of church folk are not, in fact, Christians. How do I assess that? By what criterion? I also unpack mercy and grace as critical components of a Christian worldview; grand examples and daily examples. Along the way I tell a couple stories about having worked at a Burger King as a young man. Come think and laugh with me.
Over the past 18+ months, I've seen people waking up to a work reality that frankly hasn't been serving them. They've not been fully utilized or they weren't acknowledged or were constantly thwarted by their boss. And the beauty in all of this is that they are realizing it's time to fully express their talents, ideas and insights. They are raising their standards and we can call do this! We can expect more from our careers. So if you've been pining for a better fit career or job, listen in! I've also been inspired recently to look more closely into leadership during COVID and in particular, business ethics. I don't think you can look very far without seeing that we are in a time of great change. So we're going to delve into these subjects with Dean Joyce Russell, Head of the Villanova School of Business and the first woman to lead the business school in its almost 100-year history. We'll also discuss how they've been able to achieve an out of college hiring rate of over 94% as well as look at the return on an investment of a college degree in today's day and age. This is the time for us all to be highly discerning and leverage each other's strengths and talents in service to the good of humanity. More heads are better than one. To support greater diversity of thought, this month's career tip is based on an article from Psychology Today about how to recognize and avoid groupthink in your organization. Listen in and learn the secrets to successful leadership and ethics that encourage the most effective decision-making. Now that's great leadership during Covid and beyond!

It's time for a check in with Steven and his discernment process and how it has matured.First, we define what discernment is and what it isn't.Discernment is a process. Steven speaks to his discernment process during college and his wish for a ‘St. Paul Moment'. It never (or hasn't yet) came.We discuss some of the touch points and challenges along Steven's path of discernment. A lot of the work has been pruning away of things that are not true and working towards clarity towards what is true.Seminary is like unwrapping a gift. As you keep unwrapping there are new things to be discovered.Discernment at the start may be scrupulous as one worries about ‘getting everything right'. It is only through the process that a sense of ease and comfortability develops.
Many people are asking: “Will Ravi Zacharias be saved in the end?” Such questions naturally haunt us in our own private encounters with sin: How will this affect my eternal fate? Does this sin endanger my salvation? But by focusing on these kinds of questions we skew biblical priorities. Vincent Kajuma of ACFAR Kenya explains.

Bill Horne built the foundation of his career in sales at IBM and realized his dream of becoming an executive at age 40. He is a committed lifelong learner who believes in active listening - and it shows. Bill follows staffing advice he learned from a rug merchant on a flight from Atlanta to Salt Lake City in the 1980s. And credits his mentor with teaching him how to gather and be discerning about data in new and difficult leadership situations. He also reflects on advice from IBM sales legend Monte Stern and the kind and accepting example of his wife's “Meemaw.” Tom asks Bill how you decide where to focus your energy as a leader. Bill says that the key is to start with five disparate data points before you make any decisions. But it's crucial to dial in and really listen to what you're being told - don't listen to see what fits the story that you're looking for. Tom and Bill discuss the limits of what you can control as a leader. Tom asserts that investors don't talk about customers enough in board meetings. And Bill explains that you have to tell the customer story in a language that expert money managers can understand. Bill talks about how hard it is to fire people and Tom confirms that you can't fire your kids when they fail at the tasks you've assigned them to do.
