News reporting has become so politicized that it’s difficult to discover the truth on a given issue such as COVID, race and policing, election fraud, immigration, and countless other issues.

Turn to CNN and you’ll get the left-wing viewpoint. Turn to Fox and you’ll get the opposite. Even what stories are covered—and aren’t covered—is based on political calculations. Then there’s the Big Tech companies regulating content they disagree with as part of controlling “misinformation”. Many people, including Christians, just don’t know what to believe anymore.

So how does one know what the truth is on a given issue?...

How to know the truth when the truth is hard to know that is a topic we discussed today. Right here on the Christian worldview radio program with the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview. Christians and to share the good news of Jesus Christ Monday between the host website is the Christian worldview.reporting has become so politicized that it is difficult to discover the truth on a given issue, such as co-visitor race in policing or election fraud or immigration in countless other issues you probably notice this you turn to CNN and you get the left-wing viewpoint you turn to Fox and you get the opposite viewpoint. Even what stories are covered and covered is based on political calculations.

In other words, what story that's covered or not covered.

Gonna benefit one particular site then there is the big tech companies regulating content or just erasing it or putting warnings on it. Whatever content they disagree with. As part of controlling what they would call quote misinformation. Many people, including Christians just don't know who or what to believe anymore so how does one know what the truth is on a given issue a Christians worldview should be based on Scripture but how to apply that to contemporary events. How to know who or what can be trusted in this highly polarized and politicized climate to discern truth from error on current events requires rock solid anchoring to three pillars from which we can understand the world around us. So again, thank you for joining us this weekend to find out what those filters are never received lots of feedback after last week's program on early home treatment for covert or outpatient covert treatment rather than inpatient treatment in the hospital and becomes sometimes too late and frankly it's a complete travesty that the information from last week isn't more readily known to a vast majority of Americans now say I wouldn't have known if my parents hadn't gotten covert my older brother Mark who is a doctor reached out and found out about these home treatments for the coronavirus and I'm sure like you, I've encountered many people who have this mentality that will I'm safe. II have the vaccine they they lead with that information for you. I'm vaccinated.

Therefore I'm safe for people who just live in abject fear of coven or other people. You see this all the time to were there wearing masks outdoors you just think why is everyone so afraid of something where 99.9% of people recover from it. You talk about cortical misinformation that the level of misinformation about co-vid and other things.

Whether it's policing." Systemic racism. Transgender is him and gender identity and and everything really today is just off the charts, particularly with the issue of co-vid. There is just widespread. I guess you can only say this is delusion and in this week. Of course, the, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for for covert will has been pulled from the market after several people died after getting the vaccine, but I saw this news story from bring me the news and is titled the Centers for Disease Control do not travel to Canada even if you are vaccinated.

This is so representative what's going on to get vaccinated.

Although you have to be careful. Once your vaccinated travel to Canada from the US is being discouraged by the CDC saying that even those who are fully vaccinated could be infected and spread covert, 19 variance traveler should avoid all travel to Canada because of the current situation in Canada even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading covert, 19 variance and should avoid all travel to Canada. What is the point of getting the vaccine. If it doesn't fully protect you from getting the virus or variance of the virus, or allow you to live normally I think was disappointing is that some prominent evangelical leaders have come out in favor of this worldview of getting the vaccine and therefore you're going to be safe. Franklin Graham Senna, Billy Graham, the head of Samaritans purse wrote in a Facebook post on which there were 26,000 comments.

He wrote something about this. The vaccine encouraging people to get the vaccine. He said the Internet is full of articles series data and opinions concerning the covert, 19 vaccines, both positive and negative by the last cut of the topic were doing today.

There are so many different articles, theories, dated opinions on everything in life today yeah how do you know what the truth is he goes out is gonna say there's a lot out there for you to read. I have been asked my opinion about the vaccine by the media and others I have even asked of Jesus were physically walking on earth. Now, would he be an advocate for vaccines. My answer was that based on the parable of the good Samaritan in the Bible. I would have to say yes. I think Jesus would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives.

Now notice how the is a little sleight-of-hand here went from talking about the covert vaccine to to equating that with other vaccines and medicines that's not really the question here. I think most everyone believes in certain vaccines and and medicines that to help people who are suffering and save lives. As of this covert vaccines a little different than that's not really truly a vaccine. It's a a gene technology is a gene therapy never had a court in court vaccine like this. No one really knows how this is going to impact people on on a widespread basis. He goes on to say in this Scripture passage about the good Samaritan. Jesus told about a man beaten and wounded, lying on the road side as religious leaders passed by, and didn't help, but a Samaritan considered a social outcast of the day becomes the hero of the story when he stops and cares for the injured man pouring oil and wine which were the top medicines of the day on the man's wounds. We also know that Jesus went from town to town healing every disease and sickness. He came to save life to offer us eternal life to Jesus need to vaccine himself, of course not. He is God's. And one more paragraph year from Franklin Graham.

So my personal opinion is that from what we know.

A vaccine can help save lives and prevent suffering and I would say that we don't know that we we don't know how much the vaccine is saving lives according to the Dr. Peter McCullough we had last week. The vaccine doesn't really help that much. It doesn't even necessarily guarantee your knocking to get covert nets with the CDC saying about going to Canada Samaritans purse. He goes on to say, is operated covert, 19 emergency field hospitals and we have seen the suffering firsthand. I also have staff and their family members who contracted the virus and spent weeks on a ventilator in months hospitalized as a result I don't want anyone to have to go through that.

Now let me just interject again. This is why early treatment is so key you do not want to get to the point of having go to a hospital and getting on a ventilator for months on end vaccines have worked for polio, smallpox and measles of the flu and so many other deadly diseases, why not for this virus and again I would insert because this is not the same kind of vaccines as those other vaccines is a completely different one, and it's a vaccine that doesn't make you inoculated from the virus of covert, 19 since there are different vaccines available. My recommendation is that people do their research. Talk to their doctor and pray about it to determine which vaccine, if any, is right for them. My wife and I have both had the vaccine at 68 years old. I want to get as many more miles out of these old bones as possible.

Again, that's Franklin Graham. He makes the point of the end to do your research.

Talk your dog you and here's the thing is that people do not know where to find truth on these issues of the day. Even if you're a believer and you think you have good discernment. People don't know which sources to go to to try to determine what to think about things or what to do in life that I think Franklin Graham is a good man.

I'm not trying to disparage him his character.

Anyways, very bold for the gospel and then in many other ways. But this poster think is very representative of people. This not knowing what to do. I think he's adding to the confusion. We have no idea again of the vaccine is saving anyone's life. We know some have lost their lives through getting the vaccine, but again, go back to what we discussed previously.

Early outpatient home treatment is the key wasn't only Franklin Graham was also Robert Jeffress, a well-known pastor from Texas and here's what he had to say about the source of the vaccine being derived from aborted babies will look for thought we would never abort babies to provide a vaccine.

But before talking about something from babies that were already aborted. I would just remind people, the whole Christian message is that Christ who was innocent died for us and brought something good out of that unjust death, and I think if lives can be saved even from the unrighteous killing of a baby that there's something to be gained there so I would not refuse the vaccine on that point alone. That's actually a very difficult one to even listen to to consider what Robert Jeffress said there by taking that line of rationalization, you're basically giving cover or room to say to people who are for abortion that will look look what good has come out of abortion and then that from these aborted human beings we have developed a vaccine so to speak that can help people today know now the left.

Of course can't stand Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress because they were both very outspoken trump supporters but now when they favor a leftist because like getting the vaccine and by the way, it is a leftist because it's it's all from Joe Biden on down the administration mainstream media. The big push is for everyone to get the vaccine is that the conservatives are against vaccines or even many people get this vaccine if you did, that's fine. Our point is that this is not a vaccine.

A traditional vaccine. It's not totally effective.

We don't know what the ramifications of an mRNA vaccine are long-term and while the pressure for everyone to get it when there's such a big propaganda campaign.

What's wrong with it. The Bloomberg news organization came out with an article in response to Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress encouraging Christians to get the vaccine in their course, a very leftist worldview news organization and they say this, let us look at all the propaganda in here three months in the US effort to inoculate its way to herd immunity again knowns inoculated but you can still get the virus even if you get vaccinated and herd immunity that happens as a result, when people are actually immune to the virus and that's not happening to the vaccine.

So even the first phrase of the first sentence is incorrect. Then they gonna say white evangelical Christianity is notice the, the, race, politics your white evangelical Christianity's biggest names are coming out in favor of covert 19 vaccines their followers response suggests that won't be enough to overcome the country's largest pocket of vaccine resistance. Just as infections are rebounding so there is a fear of the under infections or rebounding.

What's the matter with these cool white evangelicals there. The largest pocket of the vaccine resistance. Why is it that white evangelicals if this is in fact true. Why are they are the biggest pocket of vaccine resistance. What is it about their worldview that is distrusting of getting the vaccine lie think maybe that the program later on will hopefully answer that question today. Franklin grandma told his Facebook followers this week that Jesus Christ would advocate vaccination. Basing his interpretation of the biblical parable of the good Samaritan read the earlier post and came after one appearances for mega-church leader Robert Jeffress on Fox News in the Christian broadcast network telling viewers that Christianity encourages looking out for others.

As always, whenever they use the statement of your love your neighbor to justify anything. Watch out their statements could persuade holdouts as the US rushes to get shots in arms and fast spreading covert, 19 variance take hold across the country. But again, we are told by the CDC that the vaccine doesn't keep you from getting a variant. The recommending no travel to Canada and we know the vaccine doesn't even keep you from getting Cove it. It's just incredibly confusing and delusional. So I want to be clear that I'm not saying don't get the vaccine because okay it's minimally effective. If you want to get it. Go ahead and get it but remember you're not safe from covert.

If you do get it and you might have a reaction from the vaccine and who knows what the long-term effect of this mRNA gene technology will be inserted to summarize from last week.

In case you didn't hear the program to lower your chance of getting covert in the first place.

Start taking immune boosting supplements. Vitamin D C and zinc, and others are here. The program last week and gives a good recommendation there. And if you do get Cove. It treated early. At home, so you lower your chances of having to go to the hospital.

Start out with Dr. McCullough recommended through this guide of the Association of American physicians and surgeons get an antibody infusion from your local ER and then you can take accommodations of medications in the first several days I've ever met in an antiviral like Z pack. He was recommending, then you may have to take an anti-inflammatory like print his own a couple other things that are laid out and that guy we have a link on our website the Christian worldview.org try to order your medications and in advance so you not scrambling to get them quickly when you someone your family or you come down with Cove or the not expensive you if you buy them in the generic form.

Frankly, it's gross negligence or maybe even criminal negligence that this home treatment. This outpatient treatment for Cove. It isn't being broadcast far and wide and all you ever hear is get the vaccine, but you don't get the vaccine you to continue to wear your mask and say 6 feet away, and you can't go to Canada but just to conclude on this aspect, we received a very sad email this week in follow-up just showing how important it is to know the truth on these things and to share the truth with others woman named Deborah emailed us and said thanks so very much for the covert, 19 program on April 10 with the doctor and the registered nurse. I'm very grateful. I have shared with many of my family and friends. Wish I'd had this four months ago when my mother who was 86 and got covert in the hospital and died.

Thanks so very much God bless you will to her. We just express our our deepest sympathy sympathy as we wish we had been able to do the program earlier, but it really was as a result of my parents getting covert in and having gone through this early treatment protocol, but again that doesn't make mainstream news at night just vaccinations in lockdowns and shutting down churches and jailing pastors is where the level of delusion has gone Christian worldview. Wheaton returns in just a moment. I struggled with my identity all the way through my life. Eight years as Laura Jensen, until I found the Lord Jesus Christ is our unavoidable legislation.

Now back to today's program with host David Wheaton. I want to give a little follow-up on that church in Canada and the pastor that we covered several weeks ago to James Coates, the pastor of Grace life church just outside Edmonton will this week. This is from protest. The other website police and security put up a chain-link fence around Grace life church in a completely unprecedented move, police and security arrived on site at the church in the middle of the night and put up at Shane and wire fence around Grace life church in Edmonton Alberta home of previously imprisoned pastor James Coates in order to keep them out and prevent them. The congregation from gathering for future services until they comply with shutdown restrictions member the shutdown rejections of it like 15% of capacity earlier this morning.

Alberta health services issued a statement announcing as physically close Grace life church and has prevented access to the building until the church can demonstrate the ability to comply. It's always the governments favorite word comply with Alberta's chief medical officer of health restrictions now just think about this.

There have been no outbreaks of covert no major outbreaks that we know of Grace life church in Canada yet they're erecting a fence around the church so that the parishioners can't go into worship is just completely delusional over the top power grabbing the worst sort of tyrannical religion, limiting actions that you can possibly imagine. Over this. This virus of which again 99.9% of people survive in this church has a conviction that there do meet in person. That is, listen to what the pastor's wife wrote on social media. She said this is what happens when you have freedom of religion in a free and democratic society. They jail your pastor for freely opening the doors of the church and serving Christ sheep and hurting people. Now they've chained the doors of Grace life church.

In closing in chain-link fence. This is all under the guise of a health order to bed.

The churches in a building. She writes it's a blood bought people Christ has and will prevail. We have an enemy and that enemy has been defeated by the death and resurrection of Christ, for all those who find satisfaction in this because there are many who do who think they should be shut down there endangering everyone, even though there is no covert outbreaks have a meeting for months.

You cannot stop the gospel. She writes the name of Jesus Christ will go forth with even more power and more conviction. The word of God will sound out across this nation accomplishing all the work God has ordained to glorify himself last paragraph.

I pray for all the pastors and Christians that still think this is about a virus and health order and I really hope anyone who listens the program doesn't think it's just about the virus and health order anymore as well. Clearly our charter there. Canada's kind of your constitution and criminal code mean nothing, as long as the government can come up with a good enough story to disregard it.

God have mercy on our nation. I pray for their souls.

They are clearly under God's judgment while what a strong statement from Pastor James Coates wife named Aaron now. Meanwhile, in the midst of all this continued covert confusion because that's really what it is here in our home little state of Minnesota.

We have had multiple nights of rioting, looting in violence, not to the extent of what happened in this city last summer, but again night after night after night. Why may you ask. Well, another man was accidentally shot by a police officer during an arrest. When the suspect lunged back into his car while an officer attempted to handcuff him. The officer pulled out a firearm and mistook it for a Taser. It was a terrible mistake. This is a long time member of the police but because the suspect, who by the way, was wanted. I have an arrest warrant out for for fleeing police and possessing a gun without a permit was a black man. Actually, he had a black father and a white mother in this day and age you consider black if that's the case.

Not sure why that's why it's made such national news and the fact that the police officer was white, actually a female police officer, but all of that is completely irrelevant he was. Not shot because he is half black.

He was shot by mistake when he resisted arrest and officers know that when a suspect lunges into a car when you're handcuffing him he might be going for a gun after all the warrant they were had for him was illegal possession of a gun, so this is nothing to do with race, but immediately the media and politicians make it all about race. See, there's more systemic racism our country.

Another black man dies at the hands of a police officer weaned and policing just to prove that this is not about race. The Derek chauvinist trial. The police officer who kneeled on the neck of George Floyd back in May 2020 before he died that trial taking place right now Minneapolis and there hasn't been. I have lost the whole thing so don't quote me exactly on this, but I haven't heard one word about racial animus being brought up in this case against Derek chauvinist in the death of George Floyd.

That's strange, because that was the whole justification for the summer of riots and looting and burning that took place all over our country member that the charge was her systemic racism. We need to burn down this country was a present enough that hasn't been brought up in the court case at all. What's troubling as well is that the, the city manager who worked for the city of Brooklyn Center. This is a suburb just north of the Twin Cities close by a man name Kurt Bo Gainey. He been 15 years, a city manager when he was interviewed shares what he had to say about the incident. All employees working for the city of Brooklyn Center are entitled to due process with respect to discipline this employee process and that's really all that I can say today. Now you might be thinking, well, what's wrong with that is in every American guarantee due process before the law deal he's talking about this. This female police officer who accidentally shot this man isn't she entailed the due process full investigation and for go to court heard in court will not so in 2021 America.

This man was fired by the city for making that comment that she deserves or she shall get due process like anyone else, and what this man Kurt Bo Gainey said is what I was simply saying is that everyone is titled entailed to an examination of the facts permit before making a determination you think sometimes that can be in relatively short order. I wasn't even argument that the information that we have is insufficient.

He said I was just simply say that every officer is entitled to due process will during an emergency meeting Monday, the Brooklyn Center city Council voted to remove Bo Gainey from his job in turn authority over to Mayor Mike Elliott.

Now this is a long way of getting to our topic which is why is there so much delusion me about COBIT about these racial incidents. Why can't people discern truth from lies or maybe a better question is how to discern truth from lies in a really comes down to this. I've been thinking about this phrase more and more now when you get to completely different perspectives on the same thing. It's all about where you get your new so to speak.

It's with where you get your information, it's who or what is informing you. In other words, what is your source for truth that's going to be how you perform any sort of viewpoint on any of these confusing things that are going on today every person's worldview is based on something it has a source or maybe even many sources that could be a little of this a little that it could be your educational background could be your upbringing you could be someone who just bases everything on the science of the scientists are the experts.

Or maybe you get your news from CNN and MB MSNBC. You wonder why people think the way they do. That's maybe completely different than a way a Christian or conservative. Thanks for the probably watching CNN mainstream media all the time and there is being fed stories that they want people to hear all the time. If you do take that in. That's what you're going to think or maybe just human reasoning their own quote unquote common sense, how they form opinions on various issues of the day. To the contrary, when your source is the pure, the unadulterated the unchangeable the, without error. The inspired the never fails truth of God's word. You'll be able to discern spiritual truth from error and will be deceived with these issues of our day that may be, are overtly mentioned in Scripture like Cove at 19 or vaccines or allegations of systemic racism and things like this.

You remember the conversation that Jesus had with Pontius Pilate.

This was the source of truth, Jesus speaking with one who didn't even think truth existed.

It's worth reading from John 18 therefore Pilate entered again into the praetorian is that Jesus trial and some in Jesus and said to him, are you the king of the Jews, Jesus answered, are you saying this on your own initiative or did others tell you about me Pilate answered. I am not a Jew in my your own nation and the chief priest deliver you to me what have you done now dismissed up there for a second here is Pilate, the governor of the region and he doesn't seem to know very much about Jesus. Talk about misinformed and underinformed about someone who's been performing miracles and healing people and raising people from the dead. He seemed to be very ignorant about who this person is standing in front of them. Pilate goes on to say in verse 37 so you are a king Jesus answered you say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born and for this I have come in the world, to testify to the truth.

Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice and then to which Pilate responds with this forever famous line, Pilate said to Jesus, what is truth.

In other words, he speaking to the source of truth, Jesus Christ, and he was to such a point in his life that he didn't even believe truth existed and it shows in the next. The rest of the. The passenger and when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, I find no guilt in him, but you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover.

Do you wish that I release for you the king of the Jews, Jesus. So they cried out again saying not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. Pilate had political power, he was likely probably quite well educated to have the position he did. He was sophisticated for his day, but he was a fool, and he couldn't think straight.

He could make wise decisions.

He couldn't discern truth from error when the embodiment of truth was standing there right in front of him. How does someone get to such a point will someone gets to such appointment by not regarding or not adhering to the three pillars that gives a person the ability to know truth from error in those three pillars are this you have to know who God is.

You have to know who man is and you have to know how man can be made right with this God through the person and work of Jesus Christ when you know those three pillars in your rock solid on them that extends out to discernment in all things souls go over the first one who God is, the entire Bible reveals who God is and if someone doesn't believe in God. What does God say about that person.

God calls him a fool.

Psalm 14 one.

The fool has said in his heart there is no God. Romans one says there for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them. God's made himself clearly known as says for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, the creation so that they are without excuse for even though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened and here it is. Verse 22, Romans one professing to be wise, they became fools so anyone who believes that there is no God or disregards God or believes in a big bang evolution.

That's how we got here believes that morality is relative. God considers that person a fool not just ignorant but a fool, anything that comes out of the mouth of someone like this who doesn't believe in God has to be then suspect if they can't get this most basic point right then you cannot trust anything that comes out of that person's mouth because they are according to God's definition of fool. If someone doesn't believe in that the God revealed in the Bible that person is really just like a boat drift in the ocean.

They won't know what to believe they won't have the discernment because they can get the most fundamental thing right. The most obvious thing that God is made apparent to everyone that there is a creator over everything we everything around us. The Christian worldview returns in just a moment.

Just a reminder that today's program and pass programs are archived at our website. Christian worldview.org six are also available and be sure to share with others. Now back to today's program with host David. We, the second pillar is after knowing who God is to know who man is. Whereas God is holy and powerful and creator of this universe man is made in the image of God but is sinful and corrupt. You have to understand the nature of man to have this discernment. Right after that verse in Psalm 14 chapter 1 where the fool said in his heart there is no God but the next. For sake, they are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds.

There is none who does good the Lord is looked down from heaven upon the sons of men, to see if there are any will understand who seek after God.

They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt.

There is none who does good, not even one in this is the passage that's quoted in Romans chapter 3 that were all sinners, we all fall short of the glory of God. We don't have a good nature were not inherently good. No man's nature is made in the image of God but sinful and corrupt because of our sin in the world is so deluded that man is inherently good. We naturally want to believe what people say when the president says something Pres. Biden or Anthony found she are these race baiters of the so-called experts are the scientists who get on TV they're all highly educated. He was very hard to listen to them saying something it and realize that all our Psalm are part of what they're saying is, is not truth. It's all it's a lie.

Just goes against our natural instinct. We want to believe people and people who are dressed nice and look like you're on TV, and to put a good sense together if they were educated at Harvard he went to such and such medical school or they hold his high position.

No, they are fools because they don't believe in God, and they are sinful and corrupt, so nothing fully truthful comes out of them so we have to have that skepticism when we deal. Of course with with nonbelievers, but even with believers as well who may be believing wrong things about God and his word.

Have you seen those. I think the public service announcements on what I've seen him on Fox during some of their programming there.

The answer titled I think rethink bias or love has no labels. Have you seen these little weasel ads and what they do is they have this giant x-ray machine where two people are behind the x-ray machine. All you see is there bones of their body and you can see them serve kissing or hugging that all of a sudden they come around the sides of this big screen to reveal who they are. You can't tell who they are when you see the skeletons there just human beings. Everyone else right when the car on the side you see their identity and they come around the size to reveal that there there two women who were kissing each of the two lesbians or two people of a different religion and then they always have a a tagline like love has no labels when it's so has to do with homosexuality.

Two women kissing her love has no religion or love has no race trying to influence people's worldview and they say it right on their website they say love has no labels as a movement to promote diversity, equity and equality and inclusion of all people across race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age and ability. We believe love is the most powerful force to overcome bias, discrimination and racism.

Some of their partners are the human rights campaign the big homosexual advocacy organization, the Southern poverty Law Center are totally left this organization that seeks to persecute Christians and conservative organizations, Bank of America, Johnson & Johnson, just have the vaccine pulled Google Walmart number that formally we used to think of them as a conservative outfit there when the sponsor's year and also State Farm.

This is read from their website and I'm going to play the ad of the one where they have the two lesbians were kissing behind the x-ray machine and they come out and they reveal themselves. And there's people in the audience. By the way, watching and whose can be revealed nicer clapping when they come around the screen so this listen to this ad in a minute and read you some the lyrics to the music that's playing underneath this ad as well. I so again get the picture to people kissing behind a screen.

We don't know who they are, they come out the revealed to lesbians in the song says, and I can't change even if I tried.

Even if I wanted to. The point is, this is who I am. I can't change even if I try to change even if I want to change and with the kind of catchy tune and imagery to people clearly in love with each other and then the account of a crowd applauding them and then love has no labels rethink bias or whatever the tagline is this is too strong of a messaging that you will have no way of fighting us off, so to speak. No resistance to fight off such a catchy slick campaign. If you don't have a rock solid worldview based on these three pillars. If you don't know who God is, if you don't understand who man is. You'll just watch this and not the catchy tune, that's a nice story and that will this become in you, you have no conviction to be able to stand firm against that I wanted to read more of the lyrics from that song because it's all about pushing the homosexual movement, but that all of time running out time in the program today to get to the third pillar from who is God who is man to number three how sinful man can be made right with a holy God not comes through Jesus Christ. If someone doesn't understand this one you know believing God exists in understanding or being skeptical about man's nature is one thing but this third one is the most important one. The Bible says in first Timothy chapter 2 verse four there is one God and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all the testimony given at the proper time. That's not enough to tell you who Christ is.

Acts 412. There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved. Jesus is the only way no other name under heaven that has given among men, that we must be saved through him.

There is no other name through which man can be made right with a holy God than Jesus Christ. John 14 six Jesus said himself exactly the same thing.

I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the father but through me. Jesus is either a liar he's a lunatic or he's Lord just based on that one statement alone in your eternity depends on your answer to that question. John 336 another black-and-white passage about who this Jesus Christ is he who believes in the son. Christ has eternal life, but Hugh does not obey the son will not see life, eternal life, but the wrath of God abides on him. And finally, in John 11. Another powerful passage about the identity of who Jesus Christ is. Jesus said to I believe was Martha after the death of her brother Lazarus. He said I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die and he said do you believe this and she said to him.

Yes, Lord, I have believe that you are the Christ, the son of God, even he who comes into the world and that if you are listening today is the way in which you can be saved. You can be as a sinful man or woman you can be made right with those of the God who created you by doing exactly what Jesus said here. Do you believe this, do you believe that she is the resurrection and the life. Do you believe in him that if you die you will live eternally. Do you believe that he paid the penalty for your sin that you deserve to pay on the cross. If you believe in the person in the work of Jesus Christ on your behalf. You will be saved and so do that today. If you've never done that in your listings that you've never heard this program before, and you're wondering what were talking about. This is the most important part of the program about who Christ is and what he came to earth to do.

God demonstrates his own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Genuine conversion regeneration being born again putting your faith in Christ.

However, you want to say it is the door to discernment so you can discern and understand the difference between truth and error.

Ultimately, if you reject Christ. What you're really doing is you're calling God a liar says in first John two who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ.

Anyone who denies that Jesus is the Messiah is not just sort of you can take it or leave it know that person is actually a liar. According to Scripture, so all three of these pillars who God is, who man is who Christ is, must go together because when you come to genuine saving faith. God gives you something ultra-important. He gives you his own Holy Spirit to live inside you to illuminate you to understand his word and to understand the world around you.

He gives you new eyes and a new mind and new heart to understand, so you can have discernment on not only spiritual things, but even on things that maybe the Bible doesn't talk about a covert vaccine you're going to be at a starting point of having better discernment to know what is the truth in this, you won't trust so easily what those who don't even believe in God are telling you, you won't trust so easily man who's fallen and corrupt. What the court" experts say.

Even if they been educated at the best universities in the country or hold high positions of authority and and position you will know anyone who doesn't believe in God who does understand the nature of man and who doesn't believe that Jesus is the Christ has to be very, very closely monitored. Everything you say because they've already rejected the most important truths in life. So the more a source agrees with those pillars, the more I will trust it, and vice versa. The less they do, the less I will trust it back to the first question of the day were to get your news. What is your source of truth. If you want to be more discerning about all that's taking place.

Read the word to understand better who this God is understand better the nature of the fallen nature of man in your own nature and believe in Jesus Christ as being the resurrection and the life as your only way to be saved.

Trust in his work for you on the cross. His supernatural resurrection and not any of your own works. We tell the program today. How to know the truth when the truth is hard to know we all have a much easier time understanding the truth on even contemporary issues of our day when you know the Jesus the way the truth and the life. Just a few analysis before we close the program today.

The news and information is so politicized now. Everyone's got an agenda is no longer just the facts but the good news is when you know who God is that he is holy, is the creator is the source of all life and the unjust judge of the universe, and you know who man is that man is fallen and corrupt and there is none who does good, no, not even one. You know who Christ is and he's the one mediator between God and man.

The only one to whom we can be saved. Those three pillars together and are genuinely saved. You have the foundation being able to discern truth from error in all things of life and godliness. So until next time think biblically live accordingly and stand firm.
