Today we're joined by Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, psychologist and one of the country’s foremost addiction and mental health experts, to discuss mass shootings, incel culture, and video game violence. We start off with an update on the Texas shooting that took place last weekend and the strange details about the shooter's online history that have come out (which are still being investigated). We discuss how incel culture began as a well-intentioned lonely hearts support group and morphed into an online breeding ground for angry people. We go through some of the ideologies espoused by mass shooters and talk about how search algorithms create a sense of egocentric narcissism, causing people to believe they're the center of their digital world. We argue that while it's worth talking about guns, mass shootings are rooted more in societal and psychological issues that need to be addressed. Then, we ask why these shootings are almost always perpetrated by men and address whether violent video games have anything to do with this male aggression, as some have argued. We end with some encouragement: How to feed your kids digital vegetables rather than digital candy.

Have you ever read a Priscilla Shirer book or Bible study?
o dannng disrespect Gods pronouns.
I find this particular of note at 44:29, "They sacrifice truth for relevance and in so doing it they offer a Jesus that isn't real. And a Jesus that is not real cannot save." The points made about He Gets Us are valid. But where was this Allie and concern for a real Jesus back in December when you discussed The Chosen with Dallas Jenkins on your ep #726? Your are grieved how He Gets Us distracts from the Gospels, but no concern was ever voiced by you when The Chosen does the same with the invented lores and fables by the show. Even G3 Ministries came out weeks ago bringing up this criticism. It comes at no surprise that you avoided any mention of this double standard or attempted to explain and justify it. This has more than disqualifed you from discussing anything biblical and you should stick to political commentory. Heed MacAuthur's advice and go home. #AllieBethMoore #Inconsistency #DoubleStandards #hypocrite
This chick is concerned about the display by heathens acting like heathens and about the deceptive practices by Satan. Yet not at all concerned by the same deceptive practices used by the same enemy through The Chosen that distorts and dismantles the Gospels through invented lores and fables. BTW, something that many members of reformed theology are speaking out against, including your friends at G3. But only He Gets Us gives you the heebbie-jeebbies...
Allie Beth Stuckey on 12/19/22 essentially endorsing a show that invents lores of the Gospels and the Christ event to humanize and create a relatable Jesus and characters while stating that scripture, not Mormanism, is influencing the show in spite admitting to Lynn Wilder in the last episode that she's never watched it. Also Allie Beth Stuckey on 1/27/23 episode #746 concerning He Get Us campaign (11:30 - 13:30): "I need a little time to research biblically, but It gives me the heebbie-jeebbies and its so focused on making Jesus relatable that we lose who Jesus actually is." Enemies of Christianity point and laugh at our double standards and Allie can resign herself to the name "Allie Beth Moore".

49:20 Here Lynn Wilder warns Allie Beth Stuckey about how Mormanism is couched in Christian language and even about The Chosen. A few minutes later, Allie admits that she has never watched the show. But tune in on next episode #726 at 40:18 when Allie snubs Lynn Wilder by soft pedaling the entire interview with Dallas and the states that it is scripture, not Morman theology, that is influencing the show in spite having still not watched it.
For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. Matthew 22:30 ESV That is the answer to Genesis 6... angels are not sexual creatures They claim that "the Hebrew is clear " but they admit they are contradicting what every seminary today would teach is the proper interpretation of Genesis 6. The "sons of god" are humans who believed in God.
Regarding the "culture of death," instead of the term 'assisted suicide' I'd suggest 'collaborative suicide' is more accurate going forward.
Target across the line years ago when they allowed men to go into women's changing rooms and bathrooms. why is it we are now just waking up to they're insidious ways?
amazing listen. gave me chills. he was saved on September 20, 2009 1111. GOD always sends his love in miraculous ways.
Good job Allie,!!
started homeschool this year. finding an accredited curriculum was worth it.
what about gen x ? the gen between each of these?
ps Allie, please thank Ms Chen for sharing with us. will def check her writings! plz pray for Believers in China
Allie Beth. great interview. please know that the Biden administration is beholden to both China and Russia. Hunter is the go-between these countries. Millions of dollars and secrets have been traded. This Presidency will not hold either country accountable for what happens. btw, I dont see anything in the Reagan writings that indicate that he thought China was a benign country. (the CCP). America is prosperous because of our Religious heritage, and Capitalism was a tool, financially. we are still a Representative Republic, NoT a democracy. a Democracy is the majority rule. please ask Newt Gingrich to come on show. he has studied China for decades!! his book Trump vs China is a great read : - ) God Bless America
possession isn't the most helpful term -- or translation. Biblically "has a demon" would be better. As in some attachment has occurred, been allowed or inherited. Recommend Charles Kraft's (Fuller Seminary) book on theology of spiritual warfare for Evangelicals.
