The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. Why is the founder and president of apologetics.

Research was found alive you have questions about Bible doctrine. Why does April 29, 2022.

Want to give me a call only to do with Starling 772-072-2762 next week is about the boy okay bricks I made see if I look online to be a little bit of hate mail to, but also last night it didn't end up they started an in-depth teach Bible study teaching on on the Trinity and I spent a couple hours today releasing the notes that I did so I have all the notes that are in place. I have so far, that I will be teaching out of and you can just go to the card website will Bible study page were just on the COM homepage is still pretty fresh (top of the Bible study in-depth stuff you printed up in one of the things I want to know to nurse people to print these things up and take the Bible study start teaching are going through and examining the Scriptures and learning out of them you I could make a booklet out of it and expand on the various areas within each of those sections and have them grouped in five sections, so you might hope you you don't like might want to consider looking at that just more information.

Also working on some stuff on agnosticism as well as new apostolic information to research what information is. There's reasons for that and think it's about Sophie. Some Bible study last night. I'm curious to know what you thought online if you liked the teaching. The level that I talked about.

If you did great.

If you don't lose too much. Let me know your thoughts because I'm curious and there you go with. That's what we just jump on the calls.

Let's get to Tina from North Carolina, Tina, welcome. Your on the air. There are everything, and I have acted in the battle. Thank you for thinking you can't make right and I don't know where you get that from now is not right coming court correct one race human right and so we just happen have different skill colors of skin and sizes and types. That's it now. Also, if you never 12 it says in Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married a Cushite was an Ethiopian so she was probably black with there's nothing wrong with it because they didn't like that he made a Cushite woman, not because of her skin color will because of other issues and God gave them leprosy, so no marrying of different races is no big deal. It's not a problem at all. The correct efficacy in telling me your and then pounded into my right no scripture biblical scripture to back up anything that's right, it's just completely safe.

You can show me from the word of God, then I don't want to hear anymore is down everything and also speaking. But remember this river.

First Corinthians 46 first Corinthians 46 of these things brother and I figuratively applied myself and Apollo for your sake, so that in this you may learn not to exceed what is written so that no one will become arrogant description of the standard of truth and so if she cannot establish this from the Scriptures that she needs to keep her opinion to herself because she saying that the Bible says something when it does not. She now bearing false witness against God, you are not called to get my answer. I love your shed L thank you very much appreciate your listing.

Thank you. I all right but you may call three open lines 87720722760's gift to Mitchell from Charlotte, North Carolina, Mitchell welcome around here okay so we got melts up? John 1414, 26, about, but not allowing you and I looked at Mike. The whole is not a not my spirit. But you are right.

The Holy Spirit yes father will send my name you so I guess before that what the Holy Spirit not in on well I think that him you there's discussion and debate about that is what it says okay the help of the Holy Spirit whom the father will send it doesn't mean the skiers not in us.

But what does it mean when it says you sent doesn't mean he's sent to indwell doesn't mean he sent to baptize is it mean he sent to anoint them. What is it meaningless, as sent to send and that's the question a lot of time people just assume it means something and they just go with it, then the use of Scripture to say that's what it means, but is not how do you know equipment so we can't say exactly what it is except to say that the helper of the Holy Spirit.

The father will send in an also in 1526 says it's as though the helper whom I will send to you from the father. So we have both the father and the sun sending the Holy Spirit.

So we go to that spirit of truth proceeds from the father. He will testify testify about me so anyway it doesn't mean that the spirit wasn't there because in the house I think is Psalm 51 remember, but David said do not take your Holy Spirit from me to know Holy Spirit was there. Job 33 40 the Holy Spirit made made us so the spirits there, but the question is, is either an indwelling sense and debate about that could indwell the Old Testament saints. I would think so, but then some civil maybe you didn't indwell but he was just there with them in the dwelling because the sacrifice of Christ had occurred so that the human temples were cleansed yet. There's just a lot of theological discussion about it and I don't have the ultimate answer to the just don't know what yet got I got out I get around. Why they're going to get a role in MATT McKay did not get if he indwell the in NETWORK. Yet it was yeah I want that he came upon someone without a temporary fact, they man the death of Christ that was yeah like a permanent indwelling that make that yes it does.

And that's that's the question you're asking the right question and I can give you a definitive answer because I don't see a definitive answer in Scripture that's it. Here's the possibility that Wanda what you have got I guess you are right it was signed by 111 do not cast me with your present to. Do not take your Holy Spirit from me that Psalm 5111 David said so that you yeah another couple target or not you got the spirit came upon me yeah and that they like Saul or somebody breaking out in August.

Leave me like that you look at. I tried to leave you sound this is different senses is in these indwelling and then stopped, indwelling or he wasn't indwelling buddies around him, or he was indwelling. And yet there is an anointing is we just can't be defendant fatso Swanson okay okay I okay buddy, remember God bless. Okay gutless all right now let's get to Alberto from George Alberta. Welcome around here that on top got you so-called people like that map and make claims about my yeah you and God would bill me.

You know that I'm about aging appreciate what you be more precise, and Mike then not show his sin, claim, okay, what's the question so the question it that bad you got good buddy Mike and what not to talk… Claim… Girdle Alberto you need to ask question I say what your question when you make a series of statements so I log into this different than okay.

I know that you will be amenable to acknowledge about how you know is if someone well you check the fruits check their doctrinal statements. Their beliefs see what's happening see other church works it and things like that and compare with Scripture. That's what you do my best to very generic like you do about the you that everything will you you you call your flights fine, but I just gotta tell you, if you have a habit of just asking all kinds of things but scenarios of people's behavior and its good so I understand that people behave differently, but I can't answer for people's behaviors can walk that question about people security but do not believe I got out the mall and are not yes if your eternal security which are saved always saved, just like Nuance differentiation between with those things me but were secure in Christ 1% okay yeah you go to about but they cannot return it with dependent how to defining them because there are nuances and's of those terms. And so I would say that that's what you mean by this we mean by that. Then see if there's a contradiction all dependent hundred defining okay. I think you are right, but are an accomplice. Okay. All right. What you may call three open lines 877-207-2276. It's what you know you know I got the gist of this very often, but we have some schools on car and if you're interested in checking them out at a new school to and you can go there you could check out the three's the only way with the school theology of school apologetics is school on critical thinking and their very nicely done lot of information multiple choice and it'll check your answers and hope that you can go there. We have filled the lines 877-207-2276 will be right back after these messages that I call 770776 charismatic/Joe everyone all right. Let's get on the air with Doug from Indiana don't welcome your near care all right there. There a lot out of it? John Baptist started marijuana are clearly guy are you questioning my warrior armor pushed all follow sleep over that John the Baptist closed. You know everything that you did when it came of God.

Jesus showed why the world he did not want to know if he would really put through here regularly to the perimeter because he didn't know was a baptizing Army showed God tell you how not what I mean, I know John wanted your various guide you even said that this a little bit why he held that question. So one of the possibilities is that John the Baptist is expecting the Messiah to do certain things quickly and a lot of people were true one sincerely your series okay. I don't agree with this. All that that Judas was trying to force Jesus hand into the deliverance of Israel from the persecution and depression of the Roman Empire.

John the Baptist spoke against the Romans as well. It could have been, but we don't know for sure but it could have been that John the Baptist had a similar expectation. He sees the anointing on Christ and then nothing's happening.

Are you the right one then and that would make sense in the context with airport. The primary guy and I wonder where our spirituality what year he had lived out my yeah well you can make the mistake think because he was spiritual. He knew all this. He had all the answers. That's is not the case right so the disciples were with Jesus didn't get who he was. I didn't count on. So John the Baptist you know he was a great prophet, the last of the greatest profit.

The Old Testament style and learning more like him.

And so there you go. He probably for the general consensus is that I've researched on this very issue is that you probably was expecting more from Christ a lot faster and didn't understand in the context Israel was under the oppressive rule of the Roman empire and they couldn't. Rome had taken away their right of of capital punishment, and there were plenty of people had risen up trying to throw off the shackles of the Roman Empire. It was upon their minds in them all walked, it held a lot of discussion and they knew the Messiah when he comes.

He's going to deliver Israel. Nothing understand what deliverance meant that the got a lot of things wrong but that would make sense to say that he too was assuming this kind of thing and it wasn't working out the way they thought so they because are you the one or not. There you go.

Determining that that guy right here. I would ask that question that were on the appreciate. Her good luck. Thank you very much God bless little okay let's get to Dave from Texas Dave welcome Esther.

It you know in the Bible that with pellet. Jesus had a second lower mind of Christ. It bothers me a little thick truck think of Jesus as having double-blind, it'll work you know something like that. So I have trouble with that and I'm Jill, you know that what you mean lower mind of Christ we present me even well I guess what I'm saying it.

I noted he has two natures by heard people say that you know you know you have to be fully man and fully God, you know enough not believe that he is the God that I have a problem you know the end, only Scripture that I could probably what was the problem the problem.

What is the problem, believe in the critically but I called in to your doctor called back the last night about you and you told me the word for it. What's the problem, though, I'm waiting second address trying address if I know the problem I was having a specific question. You know or that that would prove late that correctly. Now we know that Christ is all knowing that, for he does not know I you sings several things not asking the question I you're introducing a concept that we have to examine and then you're putting it into a long winded and disrespect negative along question here. So having trouble understanding what you're asking. So is ask a direct question the started off with our.

Lower mind of Christ.

Okay now this Christ that has a higher mind like a saucer stopper second suffers when you introduce these terms. I'd ask what you mean by the terms what you mean a higher mind and lower mind that those are those of phraseology found in the New Age movement deftly but what you mean by a lower mind and a higher mind. I don't you mean I can answer well like God is all-knowing and no all thing that the one thing that I know of no direct is not correct me help you out when he said that no man knows the day nor the hour it was an idiomatic phrase dealing with the.

The wedding feast and the father of the house would send the son how to get the bride-to-be trumpets the whole bit because was arranged everything was arranged and so the friends of the groom would say we need to be the bride. He said no one knows the day nor the hour it was an idiomatic expression used at the time dealing with the zebra son going to get his bride by permission of the father doesn't mean he don't know okay. It's an idiomatic expression of few people know about that.

So it's that's not it doesn't mean it no effort and in John 2117 a Peter said to Jesus, you know all things Jesus and rebuke them at all. So anyway okay. He did know everything will go ahead okay okay I will live Jesus will that are still possessed what I will be right back okay after these messages, please stay tuned handles and gives question all right. Matt slick live call 77077 charismatic slave of the hour. Looking back on this. Dave okay, let's work this out so go ahead. Her noted nature hurt my right but I don't.

I don't know what I okay okay so here's the issue. We know that the word is a person has personhood right yet and personhood requires the ability to think in self-aware things like that right. So then, to think, requires mind right.

Okay, good. So the divine word in that sense has a mind right now to be human.

You have to be self-aware accepted babies knowing that they like what were talking normal here because he's an adult to adult human is self-aware can think right thinking requires mind right so then then it would be to put a two natures each has a will and will require minds so we can say to minds, and we would say in theology that this is called by seller to from the Greeks Aleppo to have a will or two will desire to want to will desire and in logical necessity is that each nature must possess one. So God means to die.

Stella Chisholm therefore we would see that in the two natures. Each has a will is not a problem.

However, the attributes of both natures are ascribed to the single person now.

That's called the communication of the properties.

The single person has one mind, one will and so we don't understand we don't know how we can have one person like Jesus with two distinct natures where each of the wills it is exhibited but is manifested as a single mind, will, in the person single person.

Christ, that's what the doctrine is we don't know how it works but that's what it is okay that's that's what it is that helping a little bit okay well you and ask anything else about it though. Did you want to ask anything else about it. Try to clarify little more. Now back and I'll call back at another and are sure no problem Carmen.

Look up the bill the person of Jesus and the doctors about him and read should help okay. I called back like all right we have for lines going to give me a call 87720722764 Valencia McCall Mitchell from Charlotte, North Carolina. Welcome hi Matt, I don't have hard on you while doing so would again the gift of speaking and honk. I guess you cannot highlight that real quick what was written I could get a marker highlighted much what you mean that product I can come right back in convoy on command and supposedly I don't… Except I stood my toes yesterday, but the other to close as I get but I've heard that people can and and that's fine and I've been with people.

I affirm all the charismatic gifts and be with people who very respectfully have said in prayer time you mind if I pray in tongues in autumn one and it is do it so I'm assuming that that is the case, they can do that okay or do they have to have an interpreter with them in the church context of their doing it in a church context. Yes, they do frequent is 14 says so bit up in a private prayer line redundancy is necessary to craft okay all right okay Mendel problem. All right, right reading up on that and we got a lot of calls today. This is good. We got to for open lines of that one wing and right now if you want to give me a call. All you have to do is dial 877-207-2276 just tell you that we have those schools I can simplify the more you know, I just like doing too much, but I got to do it because there there and this is how it works on Carmen we have three schools I written all three of them would take me a year and 1/2 basically to write all of them and we put them up there there very neglect. Okay, I think there's a lot of good stuff in it that way and that we charge $33 per and helps pay the lightspeed like things like that and weep for us. So 33 dollars each. But if you were to just get all three for 75 is a bit of a discount, or but also if you want the schools and you can afford him you this email us and say, can I please have the schools Matt slick said over the radio that I get in for free if I just tell you can afford him and that's it would give to for free. That's it were not in the business of making money were in the business of spreading the word of God and answering questions. We use the schools to help keep the lights off, pay the bills and things like that does constitute radio and God Internet salaries and travel and so there you go. You can check it out okay in school, Deborah Claudio from North Carolina. Welcome on the air. Dr. Gould with me on the doctor but good to know I'm I am annoying that I will hold will claim that title so we got in without photos of their football like Lori go to Chicago along with Dave Blunt filed one of the work that you would need and everything you have not done any books and I'm not done a study like it's worth studying it and I think that there would be some books out there that would go through basically all the names of God are things like that. Just look look online I would do is is some is just look online for recommended books on all the names of God and just read some reviews on stuff like that because you don't want to get something from a false group of Mormons or Catholics or Jehovah's Witnesses or random lights or the NAR people you know stuff like that.

Okay right right drawer part number for your program in vertical you're on your door will thank you Bridget Greer's attempt to okay thanks okay folks, we have through the lines 877-207-2276 Jason from Arizona welcoming on the air and met appreciate what you do and my question today is how do we interpret Revelation 2219 Evan currently chew on that for a while. Well, I always like to read the context and start back to verse 19 okay select so let's start oh okay okay I gotcha. Who takes with the book the words of the book of the prophecy, God will take away this part of the tree of life that verse yeah like I would one be guilty of that will it's in it's in reference to the book of Revelation is not in reference to the whole Bible. That's one thing that people need to understand the other thing is that is looking to cross reference in earlier chapter, it earlier verse in that chapter says Jesus is coming quickly.

Blessed is he who heeds the word of the prophecy of this book so it looks like is the future alter the words of the Scriptures.

An actual physical altering of what is written that that's a very serious thing because you are essentially calling God a liar.

I think part of the reason is because one of the ways to know that God is God is my prophecy he is the one who's able to tell you what the future will be. And he doesn't make any mistakes. So if someone is going to alter the prophecies of God and alter his word and it doesn't come to pass, making God appear to be a liar and a fraud and is a serious thing. So then will take away spark the tree of life in the holy city, which are written in this book is a long discussion about what that means to so for example, Mormons. They have altered the true teaching of God, and they have doubted the reliability of, for example, the book of Revelation, essentially saying is been corrupted so they're saying that the book of the prophecy is false because I don't trust it to submit to it so that will be the example of them not having their part of life.

We got the music so you got a hold on the dinner break right back.

These messages feel the lines 877-207-2276 we Matt slick live call 770776 pairs nicely back everyone is on adjacent solar will there all right so did that help it. Maybe I should just very quickly precisely a little deeper question. What I'm trying to really understand it, a Christian, specifically there's all these different translations of the Bible from the ES. The NKJV and NKJV all these different synonyms in the word for languages and you know I have a very analytical mind and I'm just thinking on a technicality.

I mean like if someone is like translating to a different translation in Houck with a be guilty if the didn't hard for me to grasp this, like translate wrong or the Christian teaching wrong or how do you well I said in a semi-confused just take away from the words of the book so I would think. I think we could do is list out hypothetically since it analytical mind. Good to imagine an Excel spreadsheet or word document and you have yet Revelation 2219 sitting there you go to a Word document hit tab you hit enter and it invents and you say possibility possible understandings or interpretations hit tab another indent. This is how I work.

I'm very I'm like this all the time and so I'm able to categorize information this way very quickly and so egg to possible interpretive methods then I would lose them out things like literally taking away from the words as in copying the documents and altering the actual text that one possibility.

Another one would be purposely misrepresenting it while you're preaching or teaching that could be another one. Another one could be accidentally nailed accidentally that's under is that it intentional or not intention because it appears to be in Revelation 2219 intentionality of taking ways the words of this essay would need to take with the words of the book so because of that we have difficulty and in exactly interpret what we have to do is write through a scope of possible meanings and then strengths and weaknesses of each of those possibilities. This is what I do on all kinds of topics. So then what I can do when you may hear menorrhagia say well here's a view here's a view here's a few I don't know what the exact view is because the Scriptures don't tell us, and this is where it is and that would be applicable here. So when ventilation definitely help me a lot more. I greatly appreciate that thorough explanation of my brain, wrap around it and interesting very very quickly. I was looking at Kelvin, Gary and he wouldn't even you wouldn't even commentate on Revelation and I read some of Gil's writing that I think it was thing.

He didn't even want to know what it talk about it. I mean, and so would like to interesting L, I wonder if he was so analytical.

He was like you know I'm to get up I'm disconnect sides that this could be that I am running out of time.

He was tired and will do is all analyze stuff like this. Okay since you seem to have analytical mind okay will I relate to analytical and so I then do my Mike, outlining, indenting categorization I can move things up and down. I can then write notes are doing different colors.

I then literally highlight things and put level I, two and three for the left panel so that I can see the outline form their this is what I actually do you brought this up. I actually do this, I've taught people how to do this and then I would go to commentaries say okay I've exhausted by think a reasonable expectation of greek cyclic at the Greek. Okay, nothing unusual about that any cross-references go to the US treasury scriptural knowledge to C3 cross-references to come up with and then I come up with a semantic domain or rate, but interpretive domain of possibilities pinnacle to commentaries, so here's a common trading look at this when Yama read it to. If any man shall take away also condition of the third class with eon record and the second wrist and active second Eric active subjunctive of a freight of heretical without the repeated both the condition, a conclusion future active indicative to understand the stuff you out which are written in the book etc. etc. ablative neuter plural articulate perk old man this is.

I don't know what this means, but this actually is said this is actually what it says you ablative neuter plural articulate perfect passive participle is in opposition or apposition with X to July on taste so ace, so I do you know if I knew a lot more to come back with intelligent response so you know what that's what I go next click will prepare your time in yet at that, you know, as a Christian I know I'm saved by grace but you, when you read something like that, you think, oh my gosh, you know, was there ever a time I read the revelation and accidentally talk to someone and omitted a word or something you is not like that stuff like because if it were, they say didn't do word right does it apply only Revelation enough look at Matthew with it is all inspired when he's talking about here is the issue I believe overall this is a prophecy and you can't mess with with prophecies of God. This is an intention. If you seek it mean something. You misrepresented that snack that destroy you because you thought trying to take away not doing this malicious anything. There's a difference between on purpose and ignorance is a great deal of different writer so you don't much matter. I appreciate your time right and hope that helps. Okay thank you sir about all right now let's get to Kevin from Ohio hi Kevin, welcome on here don't generate negative mental letter stuff going on what he got so okay I know I speak Baptist Church where they have that they don't permit women to be in. The priest were good or anything of that nature. Recently I discovered this one lady that I don't charge everything out and I find out it. She said you can call lady pastor and what he found out what church I went to meet why do they not believe women should lead the church in my farewell. One of the things that that the church is a female like a female. If the mother and you're praying in the congregation give the children and the pastor is the mandoline mentor and map out no okay with this analogy because it's saying I cannot get you don't want to do an analogy of illustrations to make a doctrinal absent statement okay okay you are right now there's a doctrine called federal headship federal headship teaches that the male represents the descendents not the female. So Adam and Eve were in the garden she send first gave the fruit to Adam. Then he send Romans 512 says sin entered the world through one man, Adam. So even skipping coughing through about that even though Eve send first and she was in the world she was not the federal had the representative of mankind. This is whites as a person. It is 1522 in Adam all die.

All right, so that's headship in first Timothy 202, 12 and 13, Paul the apostle says I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority but remained silent for Adam was first created, he ties into the created order is not a cultural thing so she's not to teach or exercise authority is not to do that in the very next chapter in first Timothy 315, Paul says he's giving instruction on how to conduct yourself in the household of God, the church.

He's very clearly still teaching us. Furthermore furthermore, when you go to first Timothy 517. The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching, preaching and teaching. But when Elder does in Greek words have gender in English.

They rarely do. Boy, girl, mom, dad, they have gender implied in them. And so in in Greek gender is all over the place. You could have masculine, feminine and neuter in the word elders who rule well the word elders is the knowledge of masculine plural it were to just masculine okay is in the masculine form that you could have used the neuter you could have used the feminine. But he used them for the masculine now when you go to first Timothy three it says deacons must be men of dignity, not double tongued says that that's in verse eight. When you go to verse two. An overseer of Piscopo's that's masculine. Also, in the Greek an overseer that must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, Sue and overseers to the husband of one wife. That's a bishop. We have a deacon must be man.

Also this with what God says and then we go to Titus chapter 1 starting about verse five. For this reason, Paul says to Tim at the tightest. For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city, as I told you that's also the masculine, okay okay. Namely, if any man is above reproach. The husband of one wife.

How does a woman meet that requirement. A man of one woman's husband of one wife. She cannot so we got an offer this out to everybody. I do this regularly with this topic comes up, I'm challenging.

After the challenge I should save to anybody you want a formal public debate recorded debate on this topic. Does the Bible teach women to be pastors and elders.

That's what I'm offering a challenge on I be doing this challenge and ready, often on for 17 years. Not a single person ever take me up on and I believe it will does the Bible teach women to be pastors and elders now so when a woman says God called me. So the question then becomes, all right.

So you're saying God called you that's what he call you in contradiction to his word. That's the question if this it will course, he would care what you say he's called me I'm going to judge truth by Mike's variance by my feelings. That's what I'm going to do what I would say what is the Bible say says the elder builds a pastor or pastors and Elder must be the amenable limit how how can you be that what is modern culture venue can stick bounds so I asked women you show me this advice of Paul's giving instruction how to behave, the household of God is that what you know he's telling us this other churches to be wiry, rebelling against what the revealed word of God is through the apostle called by Jesus Christ himself is the hard questions I ask. I know they do they don't answer, nor the reason is because they submit the word of God to their feeling their feeling it all. I know I'm called I know being mean liquid God told me God tells me God may experience me my Janice 360 saw the fruit is good to eat. It was pleasing associate with having their, but I have ever call you, please do. I would love the right way. Okay got to go Thursday is okay were out of time. Everybody enjoyed the show over the Lord bless you and by his grace back on your Monday.
