Michael proposes that when the New Testament talks about the “flesh” and the “spirit”, it’s responding to a false teaching in the early church that said there were two ways of salvation. This throws into question the use of the term “flesh” as referring to our sinful nature. We also talk about our current educational system and whether it’s producing the type of students that is best for our society. We discuss John Taylor Gatto and how the Prussian educational system simply teaches obedience.
