Site impeachment in the wickedness of slander that is a topic will discuss today right here on the Christian worldview radio program with the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christians and share the good news the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I'm David, the host website is the Christian well it was another momentous week in the aftermath of the riotous breach of the US Capitol on January 6.

Will we still don't know all who participated in the attack. The left and the media quickly reached their conclusion that Donald Trump quote incited in insurrection and should immediately be impeached from office. Nevermind that Trump only has a handful of days left in office. Not only was Trump impeached already by the house without any legal representation I might add, but he was summarily silenced by Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media companies for his undermining of democracy, but did Pres. and his rally speech that day.

January 6 actually incite a mob to rush the capital or is this just more false accusation like the Russia collusion hoax that went on for years perpetrated by the Democrats against Pres. Trump and why is slander our topic today or are false accusation so wicked and associated biblically with Satan. Slander is a a false report designed to destroy the reputation of another and it's the same as making false accusations Satan and Scriptures always is always termed the great slander of the accuser of the brethren. If you think of the.

The greatest false accusation of all time. What was that Will was made against the sinless son of God himself.

Jesus Christ and I want to read a few paragraphs from the gospel of Luke just to show you how this false accusation against Christ led to his his murder his crucifixion. It says in Luke chapter 22 verse 66 says when it was day, the council of elders of the people assembled both chief priests and scribes, and these are Jewish leaders, religious leaders, they lead Christ away to their council chamber saying if you are the Christ or the Messiah. Tell us but Jesus said to them if I tell you, you will not believe in. If I ask a question, you will not answer but from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God, and they all said so you are the son of God, and he said to them you say correctly that I am claiming to be the son of God, unambiguous, and then they said what further need. Do we have of testimony, for we have herded ourselves from his own mouth that we transfer then to Luke chapter 23 where it says then the entire assembly of them same chief priest religious leaders of the day set out and brought him before Pilate, who was the, the Roman governor of the area member that the Romans had political authority over the Jewish people of that day there were occupiers and they begin to bring charges years with the false accusations come in by the Jewish people against their Messiah and they begin to bring charges against Christ saying we found this man misleading our nation and forbidding us to pay taxes to Caesar and saying that he himself is Christ the King. There is the accusations, the false accusations. Now Pilate asked him saying so you are the king of the Jews, and he answered him and said it is as you say, the pilot said the chief priests and the crowds. I find no grounds for charges in the case of this man, but they kept on insisting saying he is stirring up the people teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee. As far as this place. Another words taking what Christ was doing and twisting it to make false and slanderous accusations against him.

Verse six now when Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean and when he learned that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Jesus to Herod since he also was in Jerusalem at that same time. Now Herod was overjoyed when he saw Jesus, for he would wanted to see him for a long time because he had been hearing about him was hoping to see some sign performed by him, and he questioned him at some length but he offered him no answer at all. Now the chief priests and the scribes stood there vehemently charging him again, more slander, more false accusation verse 13 Luke chapter 23 now Pilate summoned to himself. The chief priests, the rulers and the people and he said to them, you brought this man to me in the ground that he is inciting what there is that word in the Bible inciting the people to revolt, and behold, after examining him before you. I have found no basis at all.

In the case of this man for the charge of what you are bringing against him know Nora's Herod, for he sent him back to us and behold, nothing deserving death has been done by him. Therefore, I will punish him and release him here. Pilate, having some degree of honesty saying your is making false accusations against Jesus. I met a punishment release him that he was obligated to release to them, at least at the feast one prisoner verse 18, but they cried out all the get another false accusations are not being believed by Pilate, and so forth. Now they're gonna ramp it up and just scream louder but they cried out altogether saying away with this man and release to us Barabbas. He was one who had been thrown into prison for a revolt that took place in the city and for murder.

That's Barabbas, but Pilate wanting to release Jesus address them again but they kept on crying out saying just in unison just outcry, crucify him, crucify him and he said to them, 1/3 time.

Why what has this man done wrong.

I have found in his case. No grounds for a sentence of death.

Therefore, I will punish him and release him but they were insistent with loud voices demanding that he be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. Verse 24 and so Pilate decided to have their demand to caring out.

He gave in, gave up their voices prevailed the false accusations were swept aside and he gave in and he release the man for whom they were asking Barabbas who would been thrown into prison for a revolt and murder but he handed Jesus over to their will. Again, that's from Luke chapter 23 and you can see in this account right before you. You know what happens next. They they hauled them off Christ off the son of God, that the sinless one, the one who had created them. They hauled him off to crucify him their false accusations had their way, their hatred, their jealousy, their envy, the resent resentment the false accusations of slander. They made a great against Christ led to even the sinless son of God being crucified. I just want you to keep that in mind as as I make a comparison. The comparison is not going to be between Jesus Christ and Donald Trump is people because there's no comparison there but the comparison is how the wickedness of slander and false accusation which which the left is using right now and even some Christians are joining in to ruin Donald Trump and his supporters how there's a comparison between how slander and false accusation was used back then against Christ house just has slanderous and wicked and ruinous as it is were seeing in our political world today after the riots. The capital riots of January 6 president Trump quickly was impeached by the House of Representatives this week for the second time that the first time. If you remember, was about a year ago in January 2020 and that was for a phone call that president Trump had made with the Ukrainian Pres. where he had asked him to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden's son Hunter Biden for corrupt dealings in the Ukraine, and for that the president was impeached by the House, but not by the Senate this time Donald Trump was not even given legal representation in the house during the proceedings. They literally went from the capital riots in just a handful of days later there in the house making false accusations against the president and jump straight to judgment and impeach him now. Whether it goes to the Senate whether the Senate actually impeached is him is a is a different story with his removal from office is literally just a handful of days to go on his term is unknown at this point doesn't look like that's going to happen so what were these accusations. What did it sound like in the House of Representatives this past week or the accusations being made, so I made a compilation of just three of them by Rashida to leave Johan Omar from here Minnesota Cory Bausch from Missouri I and some of their comments about why president Trump needs to be impeached at the soonest possible time in Michigan. 13.

We probably speak truth to power even in the face of a racist, and she cited an attack on the people's house. Do not get to talk about healing and unity have torn this country apart have stoked the fire and then handed the gasoline to Donald Trump. We cannot let them tear idly by and attempted to okay that was Rashida to leave for Michigan a virulent anti-semi Marxist who is still beyond me how she can even be elected to the Congress. Again, the false accusations that Trump was trying to do a coup. They don't care about how they use words by the way, that is used the most extreme words to try there to get their intended effect.

Next up is ill hand Omar the congresswoman from here in Minnesota who is a Muslim who was a Marxist, he or she is making her slanderous accusations. Let's not mince words about what happened last week. It was a violent act tends to interrupt Arden aquatic process it with the low most essential process that makes us a democracy. It was a direct, specifically incited by the president of the United States. We have been asked to turn a blind eye to the criminality, corruption and blatant disregard to the rule of law by the tyrant president we have in the White House. We as a nation can no longer look away.

The president not only incited an insurrection against our government but Lord indeed. Let rebellion.

We cannot simply move past this or turn the page for us to be able to survive as a functioning democracy there has to be accountability. We must impeach and remove this president from the office immediately so that he could not be a threat to our democracy more accusation that president Trump incited this mob that rush the capital and therefore he needs to be removed immediately in an hour or so is that the racist overtones the tyrant in chief, the racist in chief will Cory Bausch the congresswoman from Missouri was next to Matt and I arrived in support of the article, Donald J.

Trout. If we fail to remove the whites, the primitive president who incited a white supremacist insurrection. If communities like Missouri, first district that suffer the most. The 117th Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of black life. The first step in that process is to root out white supremacy. Starting with impeaching the white supremacist in chief. So there you have it in case you missed the house proceedings this past week that was just a sample of some of the accusations that were made against president Trump is bad enough but me just say what I think is worse, the Christian worldview returns in just a moment.

That's one AAA 646-2233 or visiting the Christian now is David you almost expected from them. None of them as far as I know, profess to be followers of Christ, but the president ahead of the Southern Baptist convention's ethics and religious Liberty commission, the ER LC name is Russell Moore. Maybe you've heard of him. He tweeted this past week and said Mr. Pres., people are dead. The capital is ransacked. There are 12 dangerous days for our country left. Could you please step down and let our country heal. That was his tweet, Russell Moore, the head of the Southern Baptist convention's ethics and religious Liberty commission, which is a a public-policy political, really political arm of the Southern Baptist convention, and I believe it based in Washington DC and they advocate for the Southern Baptist convention on certain issues.

He also said Russell Moore, said an email if I were the president I would resign if I were the vice president I would assemble the cabinet in accordance with the 25th amendment. If I were a member of Congress. I would vote to impeach and if I were a US Sen. I would vote to convict and I will be willing if necessary to lose my seat to do so.

As a matter fact I am willing if necessary to lose this seat. Just think about that.

The head of a evangelical organization making accusation against the president joining with the left. By the way, it is not just making accusation, but joining with the left and the worldview they step form affect the capstone report had an article about Russell Moore supporting the impeachment of the president it says yes this is a dog bites man stored in other words wise. Is this the story doesn't have much in common story but what's the big deal, a Democrat, that's what Russell Moore has claimed to be calls for the resignation of the Republican Pres. however since Southern Baptist pay this Democrat salary. You should know about it. Healing Russell Moore call for healing. Please Russell Moore's demand will only defied the country further also divide the church. Of course this is what Russell Moore wants the capstone report writes he stage the abomination of the MLK 50 conference, the Martin Luther King, the social justice woke conference that trafficked in racial identity politics and the grievance gospel. If you are Southern Baptist.

He's referring to the new pay Russell Moore salary, you should stop tithing and giving offerings of any sort until the Southern Baptist convention fires this Democrat, this is the captain report writing is not me. There is no room in a church for someone who while employed by Elmore, the present, the Southern Baptist theological seminary.

Yes, that quote conservative theologian, he puts it" brag to people that he was a Democrat. That was Russell Moore breaking people is a Democrat, then the article goes on to say how inconceivable it is for a professing born-again Christians to support the party where one of their sacraments is that the killing of the unborn.

So this is what some of the accusations flying around this past week were taking place, but why is it a false accusation.

It is there any truth to these accusations against the president well enough to define terms I think first of all what what is incitement. Incitement dictionary definitions here.

Incitement means the provocation of unlawful behavior and an insurrection is defined as a quote violent uprising against an authority or government what you could certainly say what happened. The capital was an insurrection. It was a violent uprising against the government that day is Stephen's addition sedition is defined as incitement of discontent or rebellion against the government. You could say it was that a riot is defined as a noisy violent public disorder caused by a group or a crowd of persons. It certainly was that it was mayhem but then the level the charges of incitement by the president is, I believe, as you read his speech and the rally he made that day, much too far of a leap, at least for me as I have looked at his speech. I don't see any incitement all the present. Certainly did lay out all the evidence that he has for voting fraud and it is very extensive. We have linked right now on our website the Christian that speech, as we did last week. I would really encourage you to read the speech now for a second reason last week, I want you to read it just to get an idea of the level of voting fraud in this past election that was being alleged by that the president, but now I want you to read it for a second reason that developed for what you can pull out. As a him inciting people to breach the capital. I don't see any of that in there as as matter fact to the contrary, the things the president was saying.

He clearly said there should be a peaceable walk to the capital.

Here's a couple soundbites from that speech on the. The data rally in January 6 I think one of our great achievements will be election security because nobody until I came along had any idea how corrupt our elections were then again most people would stand there. Neither clock in the evening and said I want to thank you very much and they go off to some other life, but I said something's wrong here.

Something is really wrong cannot happen and we fight we fight like and if you don't fight like you could have a country anymore know the context shows there that he was in a fight like as they say here in Minnesota HD double hockey sticks way too much of a league leap to take that literally. That is a common phrase that were in a fight hard push back to everything legally to prove our point and then he continued, the best is yet to come. So we were going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.

I love Pennsylvania going to the capital and were going to try and give Democrats a hopeless and never voting for anything, not even one vote, but were going to try and give our Republican's the weak ones because the strong ones don't need any of our help withdraw going to try and give them the kind of pride and baldness that they need to take back our country so let's walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all. God bless you God bless America see any incitement in that particular part of the message by Pres. Trump as matter fact, he even used the words let's go peacefully protest in in a portion of the speech earlier genres do the right and only count for electors and lawfully slated lawfully slated.

I know that everyone here will soon be marching over the capital building is chaotically make your voices are today. We will see whether Republicans is strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for a country walking over to the capital to make our voices what he say peacefully and patriotically heard and from that there was allegations of Pres. Trump inciting a mob I don't hear incitement. Maybe you do, but I don't prefer those in the left.

This is the perfect segue for them. In other words, if you challenge the election results like present Trump did and he lays it out again read that speech. It's one thing after the other after you read it you can come to one of two conclusions. Either this man is the biggest liar in the history of the world for the specifics he brings out all the different states that were the battleground states in the election where he has point by point all the different allegations of fraud that took place or he's telling the truth or somewhere in between. And this was the biggest crime in US history. The perfect segue there for the left. If you challenge the election. You are now quote inciting insurrection and you must be silent because Trump made these allegations of voting fraud and then people want to the capital and breached it. So therefore if you part of that your one in the same now.

Fortunately I played those soundbites of some of the leftist members of the house making a speech is but a congressman named Greg's Doobie from Florida brought much more logic incense to the illogical proceedings of that day they met a speaker for three years Democratic members of this body in the mainstream media lied to the American people to the Trump campaign colluded and conspired with Russia for years after an exhaustive investigation was found that there is no evidence of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia should Democratic members of this body resigned for lying to the American people repeatedly and selling the vision and dissension all across America and it was all a lie brought one article of impeachment to the floor in your one allegation, alleges and I quote Donald John Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by inciting violence against the government of United States and DC.

It's a crime to quote intentionally or recklessly act in such a manner to cause another person to be in reasonable fear and to incite or provoke violence when there is a likelihood that such violence will ensue.

There was no language in the president's speech that is cited or provoke violence in fact and around the 18 minute mark. He stated" peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. You may think that he's inciting violence because he believes there is election fraud. That's his opinion and he is entitled to that opinion just like all of you were entitled to your false and fraudulent opinion that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. The legal elements of incitement are based on the Supreme Court case Brandenburg the Ohio in which the Supreme Court set the standard for speech that could be prosecuted without violating the First Amendment Brandenburg speech called for violence against groups of Americans and the court found that Brandenburg's comments were not directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action, the court found that it was protected speech, and he was calling for violence.

That's the current law of the land.

The president didn't even mention violence last Wednesday, much less provoke her inside, there is no crime committed and therefore no basis for impeachment as you need a high crime or recent misdemeanor for a basis you have created a mockery out of the impeachment process and I urge all my colleagues to stand against it and fight the latest fraud being perpetrated against the American people by the radical left again. That was Greg's Doobie congressman from Florida and it's just a breath of fresh air to hear someone with logic talk about how this was an incitement and the false accusations being made now are just really just another category.

Another example of all the false accusations that were made regarding the Russia collusion hoax that was was brought up intentionally to try to undermine the president for four years. The people in the left have no shame.

Not saying Republicans are bellowing a perfect or anything else, but really it really is beyond belief. What took place as last week in the U.S. House impeaching the present, with no legal representation just on their trumped up to know. No pun intended their charges of incitement. Now interestingly enough, it is come out after this impeachment that a left-wing activist has been arrested for his part in the capital ricin doesn't mean everyone is a black was never least one person now has been arrested. That certainly wasn't the Trump supporter and not only that, but CNN of all organizations is reporting that this breach was possibly planned. What which again would show that the present didn't incite it if it was previously plant CNN reports that evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US capital was not just a protest that spiraled out of control of federal law enforcement official says among evidence, the FBI's examining are indications that some participants at the Trump rally at the ellipse outside the White House left the event early perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the capital again and I will completely debunk the hysterics that people heard Trump speak about the election fraud and that somehow he incited them to go make an insurrection against the capital building. Let's move onto the next. The next point here.

So what is the purpose of all this slander will I think that the purposes are pretty obvious and pretty clear as to destroy Trump from any future political power me.

Why would you want to impeach the man and when he only has about five or six days or whatever, eight days left in office meeting on the outer powers can be a regular citizen just a matter of days. Well there for their fearful of him potentially being reelected in four years. But even before that they don't want them to have any credibility any sort of political power.

Between now and the potential reelection of four years leftist Alexandria because your Cortez Democrat Socialist says, but it did. In addition to removal. She said were also talking about complete borrowing of the president or other of Donald Trump from running for office ever again. That's just courting the new of the Washington times as saying that goes beyond Donald Trump with just few days left in office. There something beyond this and what's beyond this is that they want to shame and they want to put fear in anyone any of his supporters. Anyone who voted for Donald Trump never was a winner will link these allegations of election fraud. So if you think there was election fraud you are someone like Donald Trump who is undermining democracy and therefore you need to be silenced like Donald Trump has been and you need to be marginalized. That is the purpose of this slander the in the media is complicit in this, I read a New York Times brief on January 11, just a few days ago and just just listen to the angle on this whole thing it says it's it's worth pausing for a moment to reflect on how radical a figure Trump is.

He rejects basic foundations of American government that other presidents from both parties have accepted for decades, either your your making him unique. He's the worst ever. Paragraph two. He has tried to reverse an election result and remain in power by persuading local officials to commit fraud. He incited a mob that didn't attack the capital. Here's a false accusations and killed the police officer while Congress is meeting to certify the result. Afterward, Trump praised the rioters.

This behavior was consistent with Trump's entire presidency will not only was a last week that Trump is Babbitt's entire presidency was just awful. According to the New York Times.

He has previously rejected the legitimacy of election results and encourages supporters to commit violence really.

He has tried to undermine America's confidence in the FBI, the CIA, the military, the adjusted department, prosecutors, federal judges, the Congressional Budget Office, government, scientist, government, healthcare, officials, and more. He has openly used the presidency to enrich his family. What Donald Trump would say he was trying to do was root out all the corruption and things within the FBI and the CIA.

For example, recording New York Times, it's someone who's trying to disrupt and undermine America's confidence in our institutions. In the simplest terms.

Trump seems to believe a president should be able to do whatever he wants. He does not appear to believe in the system of the government that the Constitution prescribes a democratic republic and again I don't know whether it's intentional but all these people on the left always get our form of government wrong. We don't have a democratic republic. We have a constitutional republic. It's a big difference. Democracies are ruled by majorities constitutional republic is ruled by a Constitution. A. A rule of law. The double standards on the left to what took place at the capital compared to all the other violence that was taking place last year in America.

It's really shameless you have to say, Harris, our VP elect when the riots were taking place in my own city Minneapolis. She tweeted if you're able to ship and now to the Minnesota freedom fund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota is another of those being arrested during those riots in Minnesota. They burn down in a major portions of the city chipping and post bail for them so they can get out of jail. This the Federalist publication to go look at all the different times. The Democrats excuse violence by left-wing act activists.

Then of course there's Chris Cuomo from CNN who had this to say about the protest last summer got too many see the protest as the problem know the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets persistent and poisonous inequities and injustice.

And please show me where it says the protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful.

Well, that sounds like a excusing violence to me by CNN's Chris Cuomo but also you have Nicole Hannah Jones. She was the architect of the New York Times. 1619 projects she can explain this soundbite how your destroying property that's not really violence how to interpret what we see there yet disturbing to the property being destroyed. It is starting to see people taking property from store, but these are things and violence as when an agent of the state kneels on the man's neck and tell all of that life relates that his body destroying property, which can be replaced is not violent and put those things to you the exact same language to describe those two things I think rarely is not moral to do that so I think any reasonable given any legal person with a we shouldn't be destroying other people's property, but these are not reasonable times.

These are people who have protested against place violent again and again and again, year after year after year and still we can have videos of law enforcement with witness said nonchalantly taking a life of of a man for the alleged crime of passing a fake $20 bill so when we have people who say that people should respect the law there respecting the law because the law is not respecting them, you can't say that in regular should play by all of the rules when agents of the state clearly are not so I think we have to understand where that rage is coming from.

Again, that was Nicole Hannah Jones, the architect of the 1619 project which which posits that America's founding was really in 1619, not 1776 when the first slave was brought to America every things, that's all. Critical race theory, and so forth.

But she's making the complete justification that none of these these destroying property which can be replaced at us that violence and that there is there is justification for all this. After all the inequities in our country so there is there such a double standard in the way the secular humanist son on the left selectively see violence they they can't just condemn violence when their side commits it intermittent when the right permits it.

As Christians we need to be consistent in condemning violence and worldview returns in just a moment the new year has brought new features to the Christian worldview radio program first good news for those who don't have an affiliate station in their area and those who subscribe to a free podcast, the latest program will now be VR podcast feed at 8 AM central time on Saturdays.

This false accusation led to will put on a whole lot of time to get into this, but Pres. Trump.

The present United States of the leader of the free world has now been banned from twitter which was his main conduit and being able to communicate with Americans is been banned from Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat I believe Instagram as well. The credit card processing company stripe has stopped will will not process any more payments through the trump site. The Trump golf course lost its hosting available. He was a PGA golf tournament in New York City is canceled all its contract with the Trump organizations and there's a list of companies, Nike others, and they're all trying to pull back because he challenged the election results. The there's a conspiracy theory they believe it's not true and it undermines democracy, so they're all pulling back and pulling away from him and are going to be doing it to his supporters as well as mafic Apple and Google and Amazon. They all the same time that people are moving from twitter over to another social media app communication app like twitter called parlor. At the same time Apple and Google took parlor off their stores to be able to download this free app and Amazon pulled away their web hosting services.

This companies ruined all because these three companies, Apple, Google and Amazon alleged that parlor doesn't police their content.

The patriot Post ran a really good article on all this deep platforming of some of my trump another's, and they said the clear goal for the totalitarian Democrats in the left media cohorts is to consolidate power by creating the dubious notion that Trump and anyone who supported him, including the Republican Party and conservatives in mass are dangerous pariahs who must be silenced.

Nothing could be more anti-American are dangerous to our national discourse.

Meanwhile, he says big tech seems to have no problem with actual dictators like Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini using its platforms to call for violence against Israel and the United States, or with hosting the Chinese created tick-tock app which is notorious for stealing user data.

Oh, he writes in trending on twitter over the weekend quote hang Mike pence.this only proves that truth and righteousness and morality is all tell us, or even money are not the bottom line. In life we always think of money is the bottom line it's not these companies have lost value since doing this on the stock exchange. What is the bottom line worldview is always the bottom line, imposing one's worldview on people. That is the bottom line that private companies have a right to cut their service but should also confirm that they are completely biased that they want to suppress all viewpoints they don't agree with and you should know.

Based on this, that they're coming for you as well. If you don't jibe with their particular worldview as a matter fact, Jean Robinson, who works as an editor for the Washington post thinks that Trump people. People who support trump action need to be reprogrammed. There are somehow need to be deprogrammed mirrored members of the cult's cold and granite whereafter BD program. Do you have any idea how we probably start that process. Then he turns it over to again Nicole Hannah Jones, the architect of the 1619 project we just heard from here's your response, find that we can look straight out what ultimately outbreaks that power structure in the South enforcement right there have to be consequences and then once you get those consequences. I think people have to pay a second look at their actions and they have to be much more afraid to do the types of violence that we saw last week. So what she's clearly saying is that people need to be afraid. The need to be punished for disputing the election or for joining in the the white nationalism of Donald Trump need be deprogrammed me how many steps are we really away from reeducation camps in this country. As you seen in communist countries.

It's really it's becoming and Clearview every day. Okay, so we tried to think biblically with regard to false accusations and slander today and tried to play some soundbites of the examples and why this is being done and what is the intended point of it all to marginalize people into have one worldview of the left imposed on everyone else. But I think there's something here for Christians as well.

Something that we knew need to apply. We certainly need to be very careful of not being false accusers ourselves. I received an email this week from a listener, and he was questioning me as to why I wasn't all in on the election fraud, why said last week that I I lean heavily toward thinking there was voting fraud, but I can't totally be sure until the evidence is really presented.

He said to me hello David why be tentative and cautious.

We have videos admitting the voting machine can be altered and affidavits from eyewitnesses to the origin of corrupted voting machines. We have statistical analysis and just the illogic of all the down ticket races are riding on the coattails of the president that lost other words the house gain seats for Republicans really put their losses in the presidential ballot. So how can that be another we have evidence. Why aren't you all in on it.

Well, I think the reason for that is I I do not want to be a a sharer of false accusations are false information. There's lots of allegations of crimes as I as I mentioned Eileen and believe a lot of it, but it must be adjudicated in court. These are allegations of crimes. After all, and really it should be.

If you read present trump speech with all the evidence he lays out it should be pretty straightforward with as much evidence as he contents mean, why aren't there any courts or judges hearing these cases.

Right now it is either because are not of evidence or because they're too partisan to hear this case.

It's hard to believe there's not any fair courts left in this country and why are even some prominent conservatives in the media are continuing to talk about election fraud may have you noticed that people like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh and Mark LeVan and Tucker Carlson. Other than that really pressing this issue nightly or daily on their program that some in Congress are but I want to be certain beyond a reasonable doubt with evidence that is supported by eyewitnesses and would stand the test of trial in court before I totally jump in and just put thumbs up to everything. The president alleged in his speech, and again I don't doubt it, because I know the fallen nature of man, but I want to have the same level of biblical support for proving evidence as Tom Pennington, Pastor Tom Pennington's gonna talk about in a minute here before I can say with certainty that yes, in fact, this election was stolen because ultimately if I'm passing around and proclaiming and spouting off information that's not true I'm just another one of the false accusers out there and sinning against God and others enough you don't know Tom Pennington he's been on the program in the past. I highly respect him. He's the pastor of countryside Bible church down in Texas and before his recent sermon that goes this past Sunday. He issued some thoughts on everything going on in the country from the capital breach to false accusations.

Conspiracy theories and what Christians kind of mindset. Should we have in perilous times in this first soundbite is about avoiding conspiracy theories. We should respond with confirmed truth not conspiracy theories. It saddens me that so many Christians believe and pass on rampant conspiracy theories.

Let me say it is frankly as I can. Biblical Christianity is inherently inconsistent with conspiracy theories why is that because of the standard of justice that God himself lays down this word to establish personal guilt. God demands that there be witnesses and not merely evidence there was false evidence raised against Christ and his trial. There must be the kind of evidence that will stand up in court, not the suspicions and conjectures circulated on social media. If you believe, and pass along conspiracy theories that accused people of crimes without the kind of evidence that God demands. I don't see any way around it that you are sending against that person and against the Lord because to believe post our repo such accusations is to bear false witness, and violates the ninth commandment, Exodus 20 verse 16 you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Think he makes a really good sound biblical point that we want to be very careful, we want to be patient, we may have our leanings and I certainly do but I want to make sure that things are presented with evidence that would stand up in a court of law, and if the will stand up in a court of law that some organization that's very credible investigates these kinds of things this has to get be made right if in fact there was as widespread election fraud is being as is being alleged.

I think his next statement is a good way for us to close the program is as you consider all these things.

It was a very disconcerting week makes you on edge makes you tense.

All that's Taking Pl. in America and Tom Pennington concludes with this we should respond with faith not fear the events of the last couple months combined with the pandemic have produced fear fear in the hearts of many Christians.

Perhaps you are fearful as a result of what happened this week. Listen, I understand that temptation I would have to admit that next to the 1960s. These are the most unsettled times in my lifetime.

So how should you and I as followers of Jesus Christ respond to this kind of trouble. I love Psalm 112 verse seven the righteous will not fear evil tidings. His heart is dead last, trusting in the Lord. If you're tempted to fear, remind yourself that you trust, and one who has not changed God as we just saying is the ancient of days he sits on his throne. He has as Daniel records a plan that he is working out throughout human history, including the affairs of our own country. So trust in the Lord. He hasn't changed his character hasn't changed his eternal plan hasn't changed his love for you believer hasn't changed to respond with faith, not fear is that Will said that, I think those are the right words at this time because it's very easy for even Christians who should know better. Who know about the sovereignty of God and how he controls all of our times. We are moving inexorably toward his end times and he is in control and not only that, but you are safe.

If you have been born again. If you've been reconciled to God because no matter what happens here on earth.

If you have repented of your sin and put your trust, your faith, your belief in who Jesus Christ is that he's that the sinless son of God, and that what he did for you on the cross that he died to pay the penalty that you deserve to pay for your sin. When you put your faith and that not in your own works, but in his work on your behalf. God says, God promises that he will forgive your sin he will prepare a place for you in heaven and you have nothing to fear. In the present and nothing to fear in the future yes were all going to physically die unless Jesus come back in and takes his first but even if we physically die in this increasingly darkening world. We have nothing to fear because God has promise to save us and has a place for us in heaven some great words from Tom Pennington great words for us to put our hope in at this time, we may live in a changing and challenging America, one in which false accusation seems to rule the day greater than any of that is the truth of God's word and the truth about who Jesus Christ is and what he came to earth to do on our behalf.
