Could Bitcoin fit into a Biblical view of economics? (01:55 - 10:33) 

 Is there a correlation between the reference of wisdom as a woman in Proverbs 1-4 and the Holy Spirit? (10:43 - 15:00) 

 What are some of the best commentaries on the Book of Acts from a Postmill and Theonomic perspective? (15:29 - 16:36) 

 Can you please differentiate between allegations, evidence, and testimony from a biblical perspective? (17:39 - 23:36) 

 Is it wrong (unbiblical) to adopt non-Western scale structures in music? (23:40 - 29:53) Is the next ruler of this nation going to be like Saul? (30:12 - 31:40) 

 What are some good questions to ask your pastor to expose pietism and to bring important differences to the surface on issues of ecclesiology and orthopraxy? (32:03 - 37:03) 

 What about rhythm? What about Korean or Ojibwe drums? (37:11 - 42:33) 

 How about asking the Pastor what he knows about Reconstruction? What do you like best about it? Least? (42:53 - 45:24) 

 What would be the penology on homosexuality under a theonomic government? (45:30 - 47:55) 

 Also, for example, in Chinese/Korean/Japanese music, food, gardening, etc. there’s some influence from the non-ethical dichotomy of yin 阴 and yang 阳. So with this in mind, any good principles to keep in mind in order to reconstruct Chinese/Korean/Japanese music, food, gardening, medicine, painting, etc.? (48:00 - 50:40) 

 We’re so steeped in humanism, we automatically think that God’s Law mandates prosecuting “Thoughtcrimes.” (50:46 - 53:26) 

 So let’s say I was trying to reconstruct Korean food or agriculture/horticulture. Any principles to keep in mind? (53:36 - 55:19) 

 Any comments on the importance of family worship verses corporate worship? And any recommendations on how to lead your family spiritually in a way that is developmental, but without it becoming dead ritual? In other words, how important is family worship and what role does liturgy play in forming godly habits within our families? (55:20 - 59:25) 

Priests presented as the go-to for leprosy issues ... is it too much a stretch to think of the law and its carriers as a center of all medical knowledge in ancient Israel with implications for modern believers’ relationship to science? (59:35 - 1:01:38)
