EP # 128 | Black Conservatism

What is a ‘black’ conservative? What does the qualifier ‘black.’ add to ‘conservatism’ as an ideology or philosophy so that black conservatives are viewed as political anomalies? Why are black people who are conservative so often labeled an “Uncle Tom” (among other pejorative terms)? Darrell and Virgil take on those questions, and more, in this “burn the ships” episode of the Just Thinking podcast, titled “Black Conservatism.” Related: The Myth of 'Black Community' - Darrell Harrison (blog article) Clarence Thomas: The Wrong Kind of Black Man - Darrell Harrison (blog article) Mt.

EP # 127 | A Biblical Theology of Abortion (Part 2)

In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, co-hosts Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker discuss a biblical theology of abortion from the 3-point thesis that: 1) Abortion is the premeditated murder of unborn image-bearers of God (Gen. 1:27). 2) Murder is sin in God’s sight (Ex. 20:13). 3) In view of numbers 1 and 2, no individual has the right to premeditatedly end the life of an unborn child regardless of the circumstances by which that unborn child is conceived. Additionally, Darrell and Virgil connect the issue of abortion to the historical agenda of feminism and the LGBTQ movement of the 1800s.

EP # 124 | A Biblical Theology of Climate Change

“Climate change.” The term is ubiquitous. Everywhere you turn, it seems, the phrase “climate change” is in your face. But what exactly is “climate change” in the first place? Is it the same thing as biblical stewardship of the earth and its resources? How are Christians understand what “climate change” is and respond biblically to it?

EP # 121 | A Biblical Theology of Suffering

EP # 119 | Cultural Denominationalism

Does the world have anything to offer the Church today? It appears that some protestant churches, denominations - and their leaders - seem to think so. But to what end? What's the payoff for them? Are there to be no distinctions between the kingdom of darkness (the world) and the kingdom of Light (the Church) in our churches and denominations? Those questions, and others, are the focus of Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker in this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, titled "Cultural Denominationalism."

EP # 118 | A Biblical Response to Perfectionism

Behavioral perfectionism – not to be confused with the doctrine sometimes referred to as Christian perfectionism or sinless perfection – is a sin many professing Christians struggle with (yes, it is a sin). But not only is the individual perfectionist affected by their behavior, so are those who are closest to them. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker leverage their experience as biblical counselors to walk you through what the Word of God, and other trusted biblical sources, have to say about dealing biblically with the issue of behavioral perfectionism toward the goal of gaining victory over it.

EP # 117 | Evangelical Deconstructionism

In Colossians 2:8, the apostle Paul exhorts believers to not be taken captive through philosophies and deceptions that are rooted in the traditions of men. Deconstruction, a philosophy that has its origins in Marxism, is one of those deceptions. And yet, there are those within evangelicalism today who are actively promoting and advocating that deconstruction is good and virtuous for the church. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, hosts Darrell Harrison and Virgil ‘Omaha’ Walker make it clear that they do not concur with that view. Listen as they “turn pages” and discuss what God’s Word has to say about “Evangelical Deconstructionism.” That’s the title of episode 117 of the Just Thinking podcast.   Support To support the podcast, please click here or copy/paste the following link into your browser - https://justthinking.me/support/ Disclaimer © Darrell B.

With the primary focus on the deity of Christ, Darrell and Virgil took a different route in order to focus on the anti-Christ agenda that is fully at work in the hearts of the "culture" that seeks to elevate "blackness" as it's cultural savior.

EP # 113 | Why Are You Afraid?

COVID-19, mask mandates, vaccine passports, inflation, job security - these realities and more have many professing Christians today locked in the throes of fear and anxiety about the future. To be sure, not all fear and anxiety Christians experience is sinful, and yet there are times when the fear and anxiety we feel is, in fact, not in keeping with how God would have His people respond. How do you recognize and respond rightly to sinful fear and anxiety? What’s the remedy for overcoming it?

EP # 112 | Has God Really Said?

The topic of 'women preachers' and 'women pastors' has been hotly debated for decades within the evangelical church. Categories such as "complementarian" and "egalitarian" have been created to describe the two primary camps that seem increasingly divided over this subject. However, in this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker assert that this topic is not a matter of "ism's," but is a simple question of submission and obedience to the clear teachings of the Word of God.

EP # 111 | Activist Theology

The #LeaveLOUD movement is urging black evangelical Christians to exit white evangelical spaces, primarily on the basis that white evangelical Christians don't recognize or celebrate black evangelical Christians for who they are. But is such a movement biblical? On this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil 'Omaha' Walker take a look at #LeaveLOUD through the broader lens of "activist theology," and Christians who see an activist gospel as a means to achieve a particular end within the Church.

EP # 109 | Theory vs. Theology

The evangelical church is at a crossroads. It’s not the first time. Worldly philosophies, such as Critical Race Theory and the ‘social gospel’ are distracting the church from its fundamental mission: proclaiming the evangel—the good news—of salvation in Jesus Christ to unbelieving sinners. In this ‘freestyle’ episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker look to Scripture as they consider the issue of which road the church will take: theory or theology.

EP # 106 | A Biblical Exposition of Unity

Subsequent to the presidential election held in the United States on November 3, 2020, many evangelical leaders, primarily on social media, began exhorting Christians to come together in a spirit of unity around the presumed incoming administration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Notwithstanding that, officially, the outcome of the aforementioned contest had yet to be determined, a fundamental question remains: What kind of unity is acceptable to the church and, more importantly, to God? In their final episode of the 2020 podcast season, Darrell Harrison and Virgil "Omaha" Walker answer that question expositionally—and unequivocally—from Scripture.

EP # 105 | The Doctrine of Elections (Live Recording)

In the United States, another major and, potentially divisive, election cycle is upon us. Consequently, the ever-present question has arisen: How are professing Christians to vote?

EP # 104 | Breonna Taylor and the Gospel

In the wake of the killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year old black woman, by Louisville, KY police officers on March 13, 2020—and the subsequent decision by a grand jury to not charge the officers with murder—many people, including many professing Christians, are nevertheless calling for “justice” for Breonna Taylor. But was “justice” not done? More importantly, what is “justice” to begin with? What should “justice” actually look like in society? Is “justice” primarily a matter of subjective standards or of objective truth? Listen as Darrell Harrison and Virgil (“Omaha”) Walker bring some hard biblical truths to the issue of “justice” in this special episode of the Just Thinking podcast.   Resources Related episodes EP # 045 | Social Justice & the Gospel EP # 062 | A Biblical Theology of Socialism Related blog articles Equity or Equality? by Darrell B.

EP # 100 | A Biblical Exposition of “White Culture”

  Recently, the National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) posted on its website an infographic titled “Aspects & Assumptions of Whiteness & White Culture in the United States.” The infographic, which has since been removed from the NMAAHC website, outlined 14 areas that, in the opinion of the NMAAHC, are rooted in “whiteness” and “white culture.” In this special episode of the Just Thinking Podcast, Darrell Harrison and Virgil “Omaha” Walker conduct an in-depth analysis of the infographic through the lens of Scripture.

EP # 099 | Assurance of Salvation

  To be a Christian is, by definition, to possess salvation and all that it entails (forgiveness of sin, adoption as children of God, eternal reward in heaven, and much more). And yet, many professing Christians struggle to believe the promises that salvation brings because they don't possess the assurance that they are saved to begin with. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell and Virgil ("Omaha") show you from God's Word that assurance can be yours forever. Our recommended reading: Am I Truly Saved? by Joel Webbon of Right Response Ministries As we discuss the assurance of our salvation in this episode, Joel's study through 1 John provides a great resource to further dive into the truth of our salvation.

EP # 095 | Pornography in the Church

  The statistics tell the story — pornography is a destroyer. It destroys marriages, families, careers, and reputations. In other words, pornography destroys lives. Christians are not immune to this scourge. And yet pornography remains one of the least-addressed issues in the church today. In one of the most crucial episodes ever produced by the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell and Virgil (“Omaha”) look to Scripture for answers to why pornography is such a problem for so many — including within the church — and how the gospel of Christ can lead to freedom from its unmerciful enslavement. “Because of technical difficulties related to increased Internet usage as a result of COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, you may notice intermittent instances of audio interference.

EP # 084 | When Forgiveness Isn’t Woke Enough

  Amber Guyer, a 31-year old white female and former Dallas, Texas police officer, was recently convicted of murder in the shooting death of 26-year old Botham Jean, a black man. Guyer was subsequently sentenced to ten years in prison. During the penalty phase of Guyer’s trial, Botham Jean’s younger brother, Brandt, shocked the courtroom–and the world–by verbally forgiving Guyer and hugging her (to the tears of many in the courtroom.) But for many people, including some who profess to be Christian, Brandt Jean’s offer of forgiveness was not a gesture to be lauded or applauded. Listen as Darrell and Omaha (Virgil Walker) discuss some of the reasons why Jean’s offer of forgiveness wasn’t “woke” enough for some professing Christians.

According to American Sports Journalist Jemele Hill, the answer to this question is, “YES!” However, this seems to be another form of tribalist separation that has nothing to do with the best interest of the Black Athlete. Hill has written on the subject and makes her case. However, in this episode, Virgil “Omaha” examines that Hill’s case to determine if there’s any merit to her argument.

EP # 081 | Black Nationalism, White Fatherlessness

  In this episode Virgil “Omaha” Walker discusses one of the biggest threats to the so-called “black community” and it is not “White Nationalism.” Virgil walks through the idea that the internal threat impacting the “black community” is Black Nationalism packaged with all kinds of immoral behavior, seemingly ignored, often overlooked, and at times rewarded on the basis of historic racism in America. Listen as he unpacks this idea in this episode of Just Thinking.
