This is the Truth Network. Monday through Friday, Matt takes calls from all around the world on his radio show.

We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top Six. How do you define God's grace given to man? When you say given to man, what do you mean by given? As if it's a substance or as if it's a movement of God upon someone. Which way are you defining it? Well, I'm asking you how do you define it? So grace is defined as the unmerited favor of God that is given to or worked upon a person in the sense that God's movement, God's action upon him is not deserved but is received by an individual in a beneficial way.

Number five. In one minute or less, could you help explain the Trinity to a non-believer? Yeah, the Trinity is the biblical revelation of one God and three distinct simultaneous persons.

And in Romans 1-20, it says that the attributes of God are known in creation. So if we look at creation, we can see, for example, a Trinity that we understand, time. Time is past, present, and future. They all share that quality of being time. But the past is not the exact same thing as the future, which is not the exact same thing as the present.

They are the same thing, time, but they have different qualities, different aspects. And so the Trinity is like that. And that is one God and three distinct simultaneous persons, the way time is past, present, and future.

Number four. Who is the lost sheep of Israel? I'm assuming from Romans 2 that that would be anybody that born with the Spirit. It looks like the lost sheep of the House of Israel.

House of Israel deals with the national aspect. The sheep are the people of God. And so Jesus said he was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. And I've always wondered about that.

What exactly does that mean? Now, the House of Israel means the nation of Israel under a covenant requirement and aspect. The lost sheep are, as Jesus says in John 10, his sheep hear his voice. So it could be that he was sent in twofold way, one covenantally to the House of Israel, but it looks like he was sent to those people in the House of Israel who are ultimately the sheep of God who do not yet know him.

Number three. New earth versus a renewed earth. Will this current earth around be completely destroyed and God will recreate a new earth or will this one just be burned up and remade the elements will still be reused?

Right. That's what I think is going to happen. Because the day the Lord comes like a thief in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat and the earth and its works will be burned up. I suspect because sin has affected the universe because of Adam's fall, the universe is going to be remade.

I heard one commentator say if that were to occur with the elements dissipate, the energy that holds the atomic structures together is released and that's what a nuclear bomb is, the intense heat. So there's been conjecture about this verse at computer 310. I don't know what really is going to happen, but that seems to be what it is. Then we'll have a new heavens, new earth. Everything's going to be great.

Number two. No, it should bother you that the government would facilitate an anti-democratic religious system that's oppressive to women, kills homosexuals, threatens atheists and says that Christianity is polytheistic and worships false God. It must be done away with. This is what Islam teaches. And if you go to Surah chapter nine, it talks about subjugating all people under Islam and what's called Sharia. So the politicians, I have a theory I think is correct. I don't know if you've ever seen zombie movies, zombies, their brains aren't working right. They don't have any frontal lobe functioning.

They're just kind of, well, a lot of the far left Democrats, they don't have any frontal lobe functioning. So I have a theory that they're actually zombies and you can tell. I can believe that. Yeah, I think there's something to that.

You can tell a zombie to zombify is to ask a zombie, not use your frontal lobes and do stupid things. Wait, wait, wait. Yeah. But wait, wait. You have one God in three persons.

So that's what we say. We don't say three things. You have three persons. Three persons. You have three persons. Yeah.

Yeah. So that's three. See what I'm saying? That's why I said it's three persons, not just three, but three persons.

Don't strip the context away and then apply it to another context. That's an error, logic error on your part. Three persons in one God.

That's how it works. Don't say three things. So three, like they say three equals one. No, they don't say three equals one.

Where are you getting this? They don't say, nobody says three. No, you don't.

I'm at the same point with you. No, you don't. Every time we go one plus one plus one plus one, we say one. One plus one plus one equals three. One plus one plus one.

One person plus one person plus one person is three persons. Jesus. Jesus is a God. No, he's not a God. The father is a God. No, no, no, no, no, no, Richard, Richard, Jesus is not a God. He's eternal.
