We’re back after our Thanksgiving break! And this week we discuss some of the temptations and misunderstandings that you might come across as you listen to the news about the Israel-Gaza conflict. A lot of people want young minds on their side—keep yours on God’s.

When you hear “pre-engagement counseling,” you might ask yourself: Why would I want to counsel with a minister before I get engaged? Yet, if you’re thinking biblically, it makes perfect sense. Join us as we talk about it on this week’s episode.
Our tongue-in-cheek title refers to an attention-getting conversation featured by Daily Wire on Twitter (fine… on X) between conservative commentator Ben Shapiro and Roman Catholic Bishop Robert Barron. Shapiro’s question and Barron’s answer both reveal tempting misunderstandings you can’t afford to make. Let’s crack open our Bibles and take a look! (A link to the original comment on Daily Wire’s X feed is below.)
By the way, if you’d like to study on this topic, here are two resources:
- Our booklet, Is This the Only Day of Salvation? If you’ve never understood the second resurrection and how everyone will get an opportunity to be saved and that how opportunity is not a wishy-washy one, this is the booklet for you.
- No link is available but hopefully you have it in your library: Lesson 11 of the TW Bible Study Course covers what salvation means and goes into some helpful detail on this topic. (Actually, Lesson 10, helps.)
(Tweet from the Daily Wire with the original conversation can be found here.)
We’re back from the Feast and ready for the third season of the Living Youth Podcast—and what a privilege to have Mr. Phil Sena visit this week! At our request, he sits down with us, talks about his history growing up in the Church, and gives some helpful advice about processing dramatic happenings in the news (like we see around us right now). Check it out below on our usual channels and platforms.
As we all gear up to head out to our Feast of Tabernacles sites, we wanted to take some time to ponder some things we look forward to changing about the world in the Millennium under the reign of Jesus Christ. Listen in, then start your own conversation. And have a happy Feast!
We hope to have one more pre-Feast podcast this week, so stay tuned. But with Mr. Robinson back in the office, we were able to snag Mr. Jonathan McNair before he jets off to parts unknown—well, known but exciting!—for the Feast of Tabernacles and do our original plan of having him on the podcast for a discussion about the new year of Living Education. Join us as we talk about what’s new with the on-campus program, as well as Living Ed resources that are available to all of our members of all ages, everywhere.
Before we all sing that first hymn on opening night of this year’s Feast of Tabernacles, it’s helpful to know that a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to make that night—and the eight days that follow—possible for all of us. Join us today as we chat with Mr. Rod McNair, Assistant Director of Church Administration, and get the scoop on what it takes to make our Feast observances happen—and hopefully get inspired to pitch in yourself!
