Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network this is Truth Network welcome to man talk brought you by T8 W CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry where they are devoted to breaking down the walls of race, age, challenging, and that take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior a black eye and a white welcome back Samantha is good Roy to see you and how fast the week go by is that the will. Last week we talked about current events and current affairs, state again if you will.
So probably good. I did pick back up with some of the conversation this week.
What you think. Yeah, yeah, we were talking about before we got on the air when you talk about the Boy Scouts and how they have lost so many members. As a result of their position that they've taken within the last what what would you say two years or so, maybe, maybe a little bit long on that enactment maybe close before. I guess so. I am taking a different position was deposition yeah and then now well that the change of policy relating to the leaders into the to the members of the Boy Scouts couple different things is to allow girls command the change or possibly homosexuality. Those his leaders and his attendees. The other thing is, most recently they've had the child abuse situations, not risen, you know were some leaders had abuse of children over many years, I guess. And that's create a lot of problems will as a result, for an alternative scouting group. This new organization thing called trail life that is sprung up over the last for five years.
I don't know exactly when it was founded but as a Christian-based always unit if you will assume that what Boy Scouts was and you know Roy, but Boy Scouts I think is important because it teach young boys, life skills and I was a Boy Scout body. I didn't get all of go up to Eagle Scout and all that stuff but I probably spent about. I want to say to 2 1/2 years and it and believe it or not a lot of things that I was taught in the Boy Scouts as things that I learned in the military you that the very same things. You know, I mean in these these were like they teach you how to how to you know survival skills if you getting cold weather, hot weather.
If you if your feet get wet.
What you need to do because you can quickly start developing certain type of fungal diseases, you know, if you don't like change your socks or things like this are periodically if you get bit by a snake or certain insects.
What you do in all at me all things is a life skills yeah and so when but when you when you think about that and I think any parent who understands things like this and they want their son to be a partaker of it now. We have to really be careful yeah with with this new organization underwent back was a little research while you're speaking there the trail left was actually founded in 2014 is headquartered in Greenville South Carolina sits right on the East Coast and I believe the same got over 30,000 members now in the ad and dozens of new chapters by the months so it's it's criminal pretty pretty strong. One of the things it's important about that scouting and I went to Boy Scouts much like you did. I will tell actually came to be a Christian was of Boy Scouts link to the church that I was the there anchored at a church and then I got invited to the church camp to the Boy Scouts participation the talking and though the father was was through that so's very fond memories and two great scout leaders for Marines. Both of them in the year they they were very professional always took good care of's very safety your unconscious never had any of the issues that are dealing with today unit with some of the abuse. Nothing, nothing like that going on. I guess you call men's men way unit where he grew up and identified a man's man and what was really special about those two was, they genuinely cared. Despite their tough backgrounds that generally cared for all of us young men and some of us that were grew up without a the presence of the father. Father, they are but not present due to job situation etc. etc. they kept the guests it corralled if you and that helped put that energy in the right place and then dear, it's good to see that you know those folks that are looking for Christian base Christian values have an alternative to go to this trail life now and and that's important is to try to raise these young men with those values and you want them to be a part of an organization that supports your biblical values and ideals than this is great with this trail life, exactly, and life skills. In particular, because I think life skills are as important today because it teach you how to interact. I mean there's stair some of young people out there if you say here take this checkbook and balance it there go, what are you talking about what you know because it did everything is done on the app with an app or you know that behind the scenes to do for you so it takes away.
I think a lot of skills even certain things. A simple addition and subtraction in a multiplication the person can't do.
You know, low multiplication numbers in the head you know it's like okay I can let me pull out the calculator and and do five times for some like that, you know, so I think we have weakened our society and taking it innocent not to say that we hate technology.
We are not saying that it's that I think technology in some sense have weakened our ability to even say or to think for ourselves.
You know, because we are letting the app do it for us on the calculator doing it for us and so I think this this basically soar like warders watered down our brain cells to where you know we're not as active mentally because we're relying on machines or technology to do it force and again nothing wrong with technology.
You know, in its context. But I think when you take and you totally rely on technology. Now you know they're doing things with artificial intelligence and all the sudden things and it really really make you wonder where it doesn't we we've encouraged our listeners to go back and watch that movie social document or social dilemma that I taught civil fortress in Sydney in what's that document could not believe how everything is algorithms created to fall your history and your preferences and how you start getting biased for lack of better term biased inputs toward you and recommend reads all that stuff so you really really need to be cognizant of that note will little bit more on the were told that the child abuse or sex abuse situation. Boy Scouts there was to revert back in for second 88,000 claims so far have been filed against Boy Scouts, while 88,000 in your course they filed for bankruptcy in the creative fund to compensate the victims so we keep those young men in prayer and their families and some for some classroom to grow now that have gone through that and and will and we want parents out there, if you're listening to. Make sure you do your due diligence with respect to researching an organization before you let your children partake in any events or activities and and really question what these things are just on say okay now that we're coming back to court unquote normal to the pre-pandemic stages.
Now we can just say, son, daughter, go to this camp and I'm just going to turn you loose for two weeks and go out there and have a good time but you have no idea what they're going to be learning what they're going to be engaged in. You know who the individuals are who's running these things and some of the these are camps they themselves don't do their due diligence when it comes to hiring individuals so so you do not you might be getting someone in there who might be a sex offender yeah and that's something you certainly got it. Prayer had a tie absolutely and asked for God's wisdom and reveal it. Revelation revealing of whatever's going on. If there's something very uncomfortable about the research research research and research again and research can affect so will want to things is in the news as of late, was there was a nonprofit Christian-based nonprofit organization that applied for following the 501(c)(3) and then the Internal Revenue Service send them declination letter stating because there there.
I guess the values of the mission statement too closely aligned with the Republican Party because being conservative values that they were denied the 501(c)(3). How does that make you let you know right when I first heard about that. I course I heard it on and I'm a give plug to another podcast is is Dr. Brown's line the fires where I heard that actually last week so I'm going to plug him but I heard that from his show and so I went back and looked at it and you know he had all the links and everything there and I was floored.
I really was floored, and I'm so I'm saying now. Now you come to a point to where you're denying an organization. The course the organization. You can go right to their website and look at those things that you know their creed, in which what they believe but then also go to the Internal Revenue Service and look at what qualifies for the 501.
See C3. So when you go when you look at that, you say okay I don't see anything in here so about why you should denied them their status with the exception of the aligning themselves closely to the Bible going wait a minute that the country was founded on biblical principles. You just say that I did you really just an idea with an idea and it was a war biblical princess just because he was involved in it really what it was it was that what the welcome back to on the second half of the shows but but it's it was alarming to me that you know and we see this and to use to use your term which I think you got from Saul slow fade so that this is what we see happening is this is this very slow creep to where it's almost like lava moving down the hill. It's it's slow whatever lava hits it's going to destroy. So it's like this slow destructive process that's coming in to drive out the Bible and everything yeah and will that's a great great point will curse into the second half and few few moments, folks, what will is referring to. We can roll it all way back we took prayer out of schools, 62, 63 range. I guess certain during your lifetime.
The four hospital try.
I will talk we come back to just mull that prayer was taken out of schools you look at all the trackable incidence rates of violent crimes. Everything it's been on the incline.
Ever since that you can go check it statistically back to the sword. Come back here. The second half will fix that conversation thank you so much for joining us this week it's been a pleasure having you to use CM and would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month, Bible discussions and fellowship after the best breakfast in town meeting location is at their voracious poster First Christian Church in Cartersville 1130 N.

Welcome back to man talk radio will as before break, we will talk about the slow thing.
I think it's important that we really need to drive this home this slow fade unsworn concept and its reality folks over the break will and are chatting. We just want to ask each of you that are listening. Men, women, everyone that ask you to start making a difference in the way you make a difference is to be that voice.
You don't have to agree with every piece of every Christian organization out there but if you're on biblical standards and you look at the Bible and looking through the biblical lands like we often refer to and it doesn't line up.
Yet what's going on around you. When I say it doesn't line that the things are being thrown at you the things to being asked to do the things that are being asked to be the and asked to be changed within your society then you need to say well it's time to put the brakes on and in the way we put the brakes on is that you got. You pick up the phone to call your Congressman Kari house represented call you any of those associates that represent you in the government and even your local officials and he said I do not agree and I'm going to start spreading the word that were not supposed to be doing this and that's how we might make a difference. That's what's the great part about our countries we have that ability to to protest her that ability to object. We have the ability to register complaints.
The freedom to do all those things and if it doesn't line up with biblical standards is time for us as believers in Christ followers of Christ start making a difference and they can stand exactly Roy and you know if your voice is silent and then that means you're simply complaining about something and you don't really want to do anything about it right so and and because we live in a country to where we can voice you know our objective objections to things that are on nonbiblical goes against the word of God, then I think that shows that we are standing for what we are saying we believe instead of of simply complaining from a far right and not doing anything and there's nothing else that if what you believe exactly, but there you and I know it's going to people's minds will you not talked about this before worry will all be labeled something if I disagree with what the mainstream say, well, cannot cannot response allegedly likely go right ahead because see when they say that Roy when they say that it doesn't matter what you say individuals. Some individuals are going to disagree, agree with you regardless of what you say so, so you could say it in the loving this way we talk about this during the CFG but in a loving way and people you can love on them and speak things in love, but they're still going to look at it in a hateful way. We've lost the ability to disagree and still love each other and what say we people just think if you disagree with them that you don't want. You can't.
You can't love me and disagree with me you can't care about me and disagree with me that's that's the mindset of today's society, and any other thing Roy is what there were what folks are doing. Who disagree with other folks is that they are lumping them all into one bucket and they're saying yeah if you Christian you you think the way all them other Christians do.
So if I live my lifestyle a different way. Regardless of what you're saying to me.
I know that you hate me for the opinion or the way that I live my lifestyle an answer to that is no we don't hate you. But God does not like the sin that a person commits as a result. Yeah that lifestyle yet. And in that and does not like the sin of all of us in the right of it, whether it's one particular area or another another. It's say God has the area since then God doesn't like send it on this one. Jesus had come die for. So we would have that restoration capability, forgiveness, exactly, so good. The very thing you talk about will with this really is the challenge with people in the poster.
Listen you want those folks at this. Can't see that the fact that a Christian brother sister can love you and disagree with you the best with the changes Come. We had a building disagree on particular matter, but still know that you be loved by followers of Christ and if your follower of Christ, and you're not demonstrating that love in your in the condemnation mode.
It's okay to disagree ends and call it out and speak truth of the person's life.
In that tone, and in that spirit, you need to be loving them person as a lead and in really, I think love means to be first and get the relationship built and then let them see God through your life. More so than talk, especially for an unbeliever, the unbelievers going to be more chains and more convicted by the wage love on them the way you live it out versus what you have, say, and because let me give you Romans 812 and 13 therefore, brother, and we are debtors, not to the flash to live according to the flesh, but if you live according to the flesh, the word of God says you will die as the word of God acts as not me for. But if you live by the Spirit you will put off death and the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many that are led by the spirit of God.
They are the sons of God remain so you you in order to be to be God's property.
If you will, or that representative or that kingdom St. that we say we represent and we sit around and we see August the things happening around us, Roy, and we we complain but we never want to do anything about it. Then that person is unproductive.
You know, because of if we supposed to be salt and light, you know we we know we are not hiding light. But if you if you don't get out and do anything you're hiding you like yeah I think that's great. Will the corporate the corporate action needs to be out the invisible corporate action is to be vocal. I with written matter or goings talking to representatives or there's nothing wrong with protesting that in the in going out and putting a sign up showing what you believe in and loving people through that process, there's nothing corporate that needs to be the way that's handled individually. That goes back to the relationship they need to get to know God by how you live your life exactly and that's what's can speak louder than any words you can't say does he or she truly love me who I am and that's why Jesus loved us. He loves where we were as we were, irrespective of anything we have done in the past and try because there's nothing that we have done in the past that we cannot be forgiven for and that he didn't die for. That's right he already done for us out so you know whatever you did and you think you're not forgiven, then you are forgiven you be because Christ didn't leave anything take anything off the table. He put it all on the table when he hung there and died for the sins of every man, woman born girl and if you listen and then you're one of those folks that just have turned loose of your feeling of distant too many bad things. There's no way God could forgive me. He truly can and already has. You just got asked for you to Scott accept Christ in your heart and just let him wash all that way is never too late to do my what you've done. What's happened to you. It's never too late. We want to encourage you for listening today that it's time to make a decision to follow him because you never noticed Muscovy you can make it more there if it will ever come, and we see all of the things is happening in the world and and it's not going to get any better. We already know this from the Scripture. Yes, things are going to get progressively worse and as they do when, where and when will you be standing once the smoke clears, because persecution is coming. It's coming in and it's already here in a number of countries around the world being persecuted just because they believe in Jesus Christ as people who are still dying in countries that closely that's right you Sam taken a stand for Jesus and as a result of taking a stand for Jesus, they being beheaded or their families being murdered. So all these things are happening so here we are in the United States of America and we have certain freedoms and yet we choose not to exercise him.
That's right in. You would speak into the slow fade or will we were talking about dislike is our situation with us. Christian-based organization, folks. It may seem trivial at the moment, but that's how it all starts versus the step that's the next step is the little bit larger step and also the line is gotten pushed back so for good.
Nothing is is the free to do like it was in the past of sudden with bottles be taken away.
We no longer be allowed to preach the word on the streets or talk about the word God will totally be limited every workplace. All these things are things to be concerned about exactly Roy and it's I think I'm stick with my earlier example like the lava flowing downhill. It's a great question because it's it's coming.
It's destroying things in his path and but it's moving ever so slowly and before you know it and you wake up. Things are won't be like they were in times past, we already see that in today's times are we going to see that slow progression takes place over number of years from the day and it's this mindset of everybody needs to accept every body for who we are regardless of what we do and you have your way of doing it. I have my way of doing it. So let's just all get along, but that's not according to God's standards.
God is clear he's concise and he loves but he's also a God of judgment and I think that's what we forget Roy, we forget that God is a God of judgment. We want to say all. Let's just love on every body in and do this and that, in the other thing but we forget you know when when consequences started coming as a result of your actions. Think about maybe that's the judgment of God being unleashed on you because you're going down that road yet close out one thing to talk about this was a biblically-based country right and if you go back to the Constitution.
Signature signatories and Constitution says in this year of our Lord.
Elroy will finish on that note, we thank you so much for joints general mental have a great week. We love you and join us again next time you so much. This is Roy Jones like yeah and will hearty the other guy you got the other guy okay you consist of you as we wrap up today show.
