The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. Phone lines are open. You've got questions, we've got answers. Let's do it for the light a fire with your host scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice and spiritual clarity.
Three for truth to get him a lot of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown, Brown, you've got questions, we've got answers any questions on any subject that relates in any way to a lot of our broadcaster to anything I've written or said or you've heard are written or said, give me a call 866-3487 84. That's 866-34-TRUTH that is the number to call. Always, we welcome those who differ with those critics, skeptics, those with different perspectives.
You are very welcome to call him also. Also, you still have time to vote for your favorite apologist. Okay, this is an all fun competition that proves nothing. Okay it it is it is online. It's been every summer for a few years.
Maybe when you're escaped is covert but young man put this put this together and out of the helmet.
If it's 256 or 128 started with now so I'm I back so each time you compete against the wanted people just vote on twitter and some of it is who's got a big quarter following some of it is to publicize that more. But either way it's been fun because you find out about all kinds of people you know about different apologist that are out there different defenders of the faith.
So that's been really need a gun to meet some people. Through this here about people I didn't know about and that also hear from people fun on how our work is impacting them so that is a real blessing and joy admitted to the finals again.
The first time I made it to the finals. I lost the CS Lewis like take that any day bandits and otter to lose the CS Lewis sees his mom been gone from this world with his work continues to speak and change lives to this moment I'm in God knows how many tens of millions of people been impacted through his writings and his legacy and in writing string into movies, Chronicles of Narnia and other things like that. But if you get a twitter account go over to my twitter page, so DR Michael L.
So the two ells there and if you scroll down, you will see a link where you can just click on that and I'm up against classical theorists. I don't know him at all. Been trying to find out more about them don't know him at all, but interestingly enough, he must have some good twitter contacts or network because he would search for a way ahead of me like 75% of the vote versus 25 for me, saw the having fun, and unduly for two serious reasons, though in the midst of this I did for two serious reasons which I'll tell you a moment. So we're climbing back up now. Where were up to sell 54.6% to 45.4.
So were gaining ground, get two days left 1888 votes in so far as you get time to vote, but that the serious part serious part in all this is that there are very few charismatic apologists that the vast majority of apologists are not charismatic Pentecostal in the background or if they are that's for many.
For most, it's not a major part of the life or ministry. So I only use this we get the victory to really get it's all for fun. It's all for families and proves nothing but if we get the victory here what I want to do is his help encourage other charismatics to get involved in the CS we believe in the power the spirit. Yes, we understand that dynamic. But it's not mind or spirit, heart or mind intellect or power. It's is both. It's both to make it radically save you make it radically born again by the way by the web a lot to share with you today, but Friday is caller driven and many times we start the show all five lines lit up.
It's hard to get through waiting for your calls and then I'll start taking them so this is a perfect time to call your phone lines wide open, 866-348-7884. Sometimes folks wait a little later when the four months Clearbrook is a perfect time to call 866-34-TRUTH so you make it say through radical encounter with God right you are lost in sin, you are full of rebellion you get radically dramatically beautifully gloriously born-again and you're walking with Jesus, and things are wonderful and you're experiencing God in your own life.
Maybe your 1516 years old. Now your 18 you go off to college and you start getting bombarded from every angle with intellectual and moral attacks on the Bible and philosophical attacks on the Bible and you start to struggle. You know that Jesus changed her life with her say well I became a Hindu I this experience or you know I became. I used to be religious but I'm not anymore and I had this experience. The change my life negatively and start to question and you find your you're not so able to share your faith like you once were. You're not so bold as you once were in US. I need some answers will often anthropologist something or you talk to someone in your class and they won't even talk to at all. Now you listen to at all. But when you can answer some of the questions and respond to some of their objections may use an atheist, or someone else in maybe that maybe the listener and then they can have experience in God's again.
It's both. And it is both and so if we get this victory here apologetics trim it or use it to encourage fellow charismatics… Let's deepen our politics. Some of you recall to this. And then the priority of Jewish politics. As far as I can tell far as I can tell from everyone that's involved in this apologetics tournament. This is a large number as best as I can tell, I'm the only one that majors Jewish politics cross-cultural politics is a major part of a life, but the Jewish apologetics is been a heart soul what I've been engaged in for decades.
So we want to we want to encourage that we know their efforts to see more of that. But we want to encourage it even more. The days ahead okay before I go to the phones. Let me go over to YouTube and will start with blood covenant what you Protestants not have communion every time they meet. That's a great question. The simple answer is there is no universal rule for all Protestants. There is not some always that okay if you're Protestant you do this you do this you do this to do this so you may have Protestant churches that meet once a week you might have ones that meet three days a week you might have early morning prayer you might have late night prayer you may have once a month extended worship services you may have reading from the Scripture and preaching from the Scripture or just preaching from the Scripture so Protestant churches do things differently and in the earliest church gathers what we could tell, you would have a communal meal together so you gather worship you hear the word and you have a communal meal and in the midst of that communal meal would remember the Lord's death and resurrection through the elements of communion. It was, not just a a a ritual where my friends calls the Lord's snack note was the Lord's supper. There would be a gather that's with the Corinthian. Some of them were rebuking for strength is loving because people showed up and there there.
They show up early. They eat all the bread they drink the wine to get drunk so there was an actual meal that people would have together.
So the idea of having it every time you gather you could get you to make a case that is is merely custom which is not written in stone so there Protestant churches that will have communion weekly. The present churches that have communion monthly. I don't think you can do too much. The weekend all right let's move over to the phones starting with Stefan into bed caliph cornea welcome to the line of fire. Hello Dr. Brown I am a great friend of yours. My question, I struggle with and I believe in the Bible I believe they my question is how do you think I can overcome them with Stefan's first I'm so glad you have the right perspective, which is that you as a Jesus follower struggle with same-sex attraction, as opposed to letting that struggle. Define who you are instead of calling and saying I'm gay from a gay Christian. We've written out lost half the battle, but rather to say I struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction, I first want you to know that your identity is in Jesus as a child of God and forever and ever. You'll be a son of God.
That's that's she's been your primary identity and secondly all the struggle in one way or another we have to deny ourselves in this case it's something very deep and fundamental in you.
In other words, it's not just some some very external thing you struggle with here and there.
Feels like part of who you are.
So you have to say okay this is this their desires, attractions. They don't define with the funds is my relationship with God and like every other simple tendency.
There is victory in Jesus and there are many people some of whom I've known for many many years who found freedom.
Some it is been through and supernatural experience of God healing them deeply within, and they were changed others. It's been of seizing a process over primitive years where they they grew and they got to the root of the issues through counseling and they were freed. Others have just had a tremendous lessening of same-sex attraction so Stefan have you ever reached out to restored hope network and the resources they have available. Hello, I have not okay will but let me just give you two places I would encourage you to go check out changed movement.com changed movement to the.com or.org but you'll find it start reading the testimonies there. You may want to reach out to folks there, based in California changed movement.com or restored hope network.org on one restored hope network the Lord read the testimonies, reach out for the resources there and Stefan stay on the line if you don't have my book.
Kenny began Christian. I want to send that to you to give soups then want to see was her call screener's free will ask if you have don't want to send accusative may the Lord be your strength may find transformation in him stay right here, my brother is the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown line fighter broadcast Michael Brown delighted to be with you if I trip on words that I say over and over.

Just remember to order your copy of the political seduction of the church. I did not write this book to be popular did not write this book to make money. I did not write this book to gain followers.
In fact, many will be offended by what I've written, but I'm sure it's true. I'm sure it's right and I'm sure if those were offended, will take it in the will be helped will be blessed and I wrote this book as someone who voted for Donald Trump twice and if I could go back in time based on what I knew then I would've voted for him twice right so this is not some never Trumper is not some always Trumper.

We just sent out a bunch more today.
All right let us go over to Andy in Utah. Welcome to the line of fire.
Thanks for calling. Hello yes you're on the air.
Oh well… Sure I broke at Avalon like I know you had about the US as a nation and Barret were going.
I couldn't help but think about that night about the parallels between the US and Israel.
You know my need to know.
One was Abraham was a person but we had a group of people and they were led to a new land. Both were established. Nation we were both were meant to be self-governing. Both were meant to be world leaders and also [F help evangelize the world but I feel a lot of commonality. Our country is when we were established and is built by neighbor without the and yet I think I think those those are great observations and we definitely have been blessed to go to the superpower that that that we became such a short period of time.
The world influence that we've had. This is really largely unprecedented. I remember reading a book by Michael Medved about American exceptionalism. As you look at the world map over period of thousand years long periods of time. You still shift your little shift there and then suddenly with the rise of American this dramatic shift in the world in so many ways and obviously I do not believe that God made a covenant with America the way he made with Abraham in Israel. That's where people make a mistake, but I absolutely agree that there are striking parallels and that the principle of to whom much is given much is required applies here and as an example we we don't II don't believe the said that God made a covenant with America. The may heat the way he made with with Israel and that there is that same blessing Chris relationship to that same degree. However, to the extent that we say we have Judeo-Christian roots are a Constitution are the Declaration of Independence.
The roots ultimately go back to the Bible, the more that we hammer this, the more that were say were accountable were accountable were accountable. So were also accountable for the blessings for the prosperity of four or the amount of help we consume it. Go ahead, got all I would agree with you that I got. I know we have Outlook blessing. I also realized again multiple made the comment that a US is really not mentioned anywhere.
Like in Revelation and don't have that covenant with God like Israel did, however, like in Romans 13 were God establishes out all all government. Maybe I'm wrong. I can't think of another country or nation over history that establish as a pathetically of the Christian nation like US for one point and and got so for me that's reason for hope. Now how does that and we don't know our word word we end up no.
5000 200 years, but I think there's read all God had set up yet and and and you did to the thing that I think about and appreciate the observations.
The other thing I think about is that so many of God's people in America are burden to pray for revival that so many of us feel that it's not over that God could bring great repentance and change before the nation collapses in on itself or divides itself in a way that it is the Lord of the United States of America.
So close that the burden is there. You pray and look I wrote the book, saving a sick America about five years ago and went. When I wrote it, it came out of a prayer time when morning. I just felt this gentle whisper existed impression rather than shaking thing write a book on the fall and rise of America and I thought Nono on the rise and fall of America there felt sickly Nono fall and rise through still hope to thank you for the call 866-348-7884 let us go to Jules in Canada. Welcome to the line of fire.
So I really grateful you have a good opportunity. I have an opportunity to talk to him and I think you earlier today on Twitter you like my tweets and I really appreciate all the great nice to meet you then or by phone. Yes, I just want to mention something I feel like I'm all alone. I'm trying to get everyone to understand if you're Christian you need a brick perspective understanding Christianity you need to be grafted into the Kubrick root, but there's a balance. Note there is Twitter spaces out there that we get going to the specific but they are telling everyone that should be started on Thursday morning a.m. answer about and that six more fixed a.m. the Sunday morning till 6 AM Thursday morning and I'm thinking where is this coming from because if I checked my Kubrick root evening morning, evening, morning dust to dust, so I am asking you and I don't.
Maybe this is something new to you but dear, these are people that are good day at Jewish roots Terry back into the real real values of on understanding the correct understanding of Scripture during painters mistakes in the Old Testament and Durbin manipulated under saying that no one knows but evening morning.
If morning, evening, morning, I have you ever heard of the have you ever come across that situation. I'm perplexed. I actually okay there is, aside from the degree the Christians are required to keep the 737s with a specific time and I will we put that aside for for the moment here and just the specific question the idea that their mistakes in the Old Testament.
This is right from the beginning all the way through. This is presupposed in Jewish life to this moment and are you wherever you live, you, you just get online are the oldest just you look at the newspaper. If your Jewish person and I'll tell you is seven start seal of the exact minute based on Sunset and and then ends here based on on sunset different dust to dust, so now I've honestly it never ceases to amaze me how many of us are teachings are out there.
What kind of weird errors or out there. But no, the idea that their mistakes and that the Bible that it's started. It was actually morning, evening, rather than evening morning. This is complete nonsense.
I only know where you get this idea if they want to try to say will there's a new Sabbath since Jesus rose and he rose in the morning so we start the morning and they want to try to argue that on other grounds which which of course the scriptural argument to make with that.
At least I know where they're coming from. So this is beyond bizarre to me. Yeah, I'm not about… You show is getting across daylight like I have a I haven't. This is just my best guess what I think about Jesus rising from the grave. I think about Saturday night.my.my best guess because I think of evening morning so I just fingers like is that I am all alone here. Talk to Michael Brown and I know you're very busy month but I would love if you ever come of the Twitter space once every two months, my brother. I appreciate that fuels and trust me I would love to be in dialogue, debate, discussion with people 24 seven. But even jump again once once the year in certain places is not feasible because of the demands of the time. Thanks. I have no reason not to think of Jesus rising early early morning Sunday I think that's pretty explicit, but in any case never ceases to amaze me how how people come up with weird ideas and doctrines. So, Jules, thanks for the very kind words and thanks for letting us know all right 866-3487 84 this for myself. If you want to call progressive you two questions for circular on YouTube. Good post. The line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown got questions, we've got answers, 866-348-7884. Be sure to sign up to get our emails to keep you posted on my latest articles, latest videos dates in our Israel trip updates and new publications resources we have for you, ask Dr. Brown escape your Brown dog Ward is quick to receive the email symbol will put your walking tour say more about my own background. Camilla see the PhD our ministry can serve you as well as send you a free mini e-book how to pray for America. All right, back to the phones we go to Tim in Raleigh, North Carolina. Welcome to light a fire.
Dr. Brown all in the ministry that you do not question for you regarding Doug Bell 930 is going to enjoy your candidate wrote about heard of it and it arrived in the dark. Her head and looked out the window opened it elaborate on that accident to me when I read that it makes me think I like a lot effort that the do that with that is elaborate on the significance of doublebill and your eyes looking out of the window yeah exactly what you said even though she's an older woman at this point she's on the system. The seductress she still up to her old ways and will me. Talk about a woman being a Jezebel of being she is see is the forerunner she is the prototype.
So that's exactly what the Texas telling her that she sees a sky coming and she's given try to deploy her old tricks on him and win him over and and bring him under her power exactly what it seems. That's exactly what we deduce from it. Yes sir and I get all of that unit that work in the window that ultimately peered down at it. During that they were unit because of her because the immunologic on in the pallet know the unit in a good Straight male to prevent them from potentially being with the women. But as Jezebel was out and cowered the timer in a with that them getting back in her know what would you get included based on the fact that they threw her down right so a few things. There is the symbolic meaning the lesson that's learned and then the plain facts of what happened. We don't know why they were UNIX, but presumably somewhere along in life. They were castrated I was that they weren't born without sexual capacity. They were made into UNIX and it wasn't. It wasn't only to to keep them safe they were to keep a harem from sleeping with the women or or one in the women of the other side to it was was that by castrated them. It would take away some of their aggressive male drive and they would just be more passive servants and their gifts and skills could be used without threat to the leadership and things like that so there there are different reasons why member castrated. Of course you could also just be a cruel punishment, but these were the ones though that now symbolically are are Jezebel's victims. So what are they were made eunuchs by her. Not for sure Jezebel had the effect of making men into UNIX when I talk about spiritual war with Jezebel. We don't mean with her. We will me with her ghost. That would mean those same type of demonic spirits that operated through her operating today. They emasculate men the take away their sense of authority and confidence. Those who who really had extended spiritual battles and recognize that this was some of what they're dealing with can absolutely relate to that that these are the ones the ones who had been a gambler since the symbolically emasculated by her were the ones that threw her to her death, and in Jezebel's North America. That's the appeal. Those men who have been spiritually castrated in these things can happen to women in the spiritual, moral sense as well, but speaking and it's the spin particular men. Those men who been spiritually castrated. Those men who been spiritually emasculated and foster sense of authority and power faith and conviction and boldness. They are the ones who can rise up by the power of God and bring this Jezebel experience down so there is there's a lot to learn from it in the account actually as short as it is. There's a lot to learn from it. Thank you, are very welcome and thanks for the good word. 866-34-TRUTH it's go to Brandon in the Baltimore, Maryland. Welcome to light a fire hello Dr. products on her without question on my question is to have a question, but is mainly I know Christ spoke about how children of the kingdom will be cast out. I'm not sure if he spoke anything about whether Israel will be saved. I know Paul speaks about believe it is robust yes but I never I didn't. I was wondering if you have any specific quotations directly from the Lord about whether Israel will be saved. Yes it's it's a wonderful question. Of course we know what Paul writes in Romans 1126. We know what God speaks to Jeremiah Jeremiah 31 one. We know the passage in Zechariah 1210 and following of national mourning repents and Israel. The question is what is Jesus himself said because he does speak judgment. He does speak of Gentiles coming in, and many of the children of the family being kicked out because of disobedience and rejecting him as Messiah. So what does he say that confirms that there will be a turning of the Jewish people at the end of the age.
I would say several different passages.
First in Matthew 23. Beginning in verse 37 where he has pronounced seven woes on the hypocritical of its religious leaders in the previous verses many speaks judgment over Jerusalem since your house is left to you desolate. This is you, you will not see me again and to say brought about him. I do not into you say Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord now we know in Revelation 17 that when he comes every eye will see him, but he says that Jerusalem will not see him until it welcomes him back is the messianic King. That's what the words mean. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. So, if you will not be seen by the of the whole world until Jerusalem or the leadership of the Jewish people welcomes him back so that's the first thing that that gives hope. Along with that Matthew 19 Jesus tells his disciples, his 12 disciples of the herbs can replace Judas with with with and filled it.
The role that in the end of the renewal of all things in the New Age you will sit on 12 thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel. So in the renewal of all things, and we would look at that is the millennial kingdom that the apostles will be ruling over the 12 tribes. So that's telling you this can be restoration of the 12 tribes that is encouraging to me.
Also in Luke 21 when Jesus talks about the Jewish people being scattered out of Jerusalem into all nations. That is until that the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled, which is telling me that at that point, there is a physical restoration adjustment to the spiritual restoration there, but there's a physical restoration so those three passages then you tie that in with acts 319 that with the call to repent and Jesus must remain in heaven.
The time of the restoration of all things. What was Peter say, repent and turn to God that your sins may be blotted out. The times of refreshing may come for the presence of or that he may send the Messiah, whom heaven must retain those on the restoration of all things to Jewish repentance brings the Messiah back. So all these promises together give us real encouragement that that Jesus is the end of the age will miraculously restore his Jewish people. So we see the ongoing restoration back to the land. The ongoing faith building within the land of more more Jews in Israel and around the world come to faith in Jesus the Messiah and then the final culmination. I was just looking for a testimony. Yet just got this yesterday on Facebook someone some you know Dr. Brown I been listening to for years. I have an Israeli Jewish friend. We have been talking to about Messiah. He found you on his own and has been watching your videos on YouTube.
Long story short, he will be baptized this weekend. Thank you for being so faithful. I pray many more to come, so that a just made my night reading those words that another Israeli Jew coming to faith and we got to play a role in that.
But it is a firstfruits so every life counts now and then at the end of the age we see the same testimony from Old Testament, New Testament, Jesus called Peter that there will be a turning of the Jewish people at the end of the age and all Israel will be saved.
So thank you for the call appreciate. Is there a way I can have a follow-up question yet.
Please go ahead, go ahead. No so as a Gentile believer. What what way would you recommend. Talk to someone that's no people before the Scriptures writer to the givens of my Judge them. You know I'm so so you you live in Baltimore and you have a fairly large religious Jewish community there and then like the rest of America have secular Jews when you're talking to secular Jew nonreligious to is very similar to talking to nonreligious Gentile.
It'll have different perspectives person may be more atheistic materialistic this world oriented or they may look the be looking for spiritual truth all kinds of odd places so you speak with them to speak with anyone else and then if issues come up because of anti-Semitism in church history of Marbella believe in Jesus of Jewish. They said no Jesus sisters himself and anti-Semitism is the opposite of what he taught and said aberration and know what you think.
Christians today are Israel's best friends is the Bible. If there more religious. This can be more difficult to to have a conversation but I would I would seek to build bridges. I would say hey I'm a Gentile Christian and it's because of Jesus that I boot that I believe it in and the God of Israel leave your God, and I agree with the Jewish Messiah subsea you don't believe that the who is God to you and to have a relationship with God about the meaning of prayer to see if you can have some common ground and then if there's an interest we can share your own testimony and then if someone is interested, send them to our website or Jewish website. Real Messiah.com real Messiah.com everybody visit there check out the abundance of free resources. Send her Jewish friends there. Those who have questions those been hit with objections were struggling real Messiah.com that is there for you. Hey Brandon, thank you for the questions right will get to see more calls on the other side of the break in front of you, pray for us, support us financially for testimony. I just read your part that you share that reward. Thank you to light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown fire, 866-34-TRUTH. Let us go to David in New Jersey looking to the line of fire here Pharaoh go ahead.
I my question. And I know your scholar with language in it so I would work on the lot where the mode so I don't dare to print scripts that we translate our Bible Bible like the King James new King James and the med Bible translate from the Lydian and effect.
When other translations like the NASB yet be in other Bible translate from the Alexandrian and expect now understand that the clinic thanking us and the Alexandrian are said to be more reliable because their older by the majority of manuscript door green complete that there would act and be Alexandrian tech say things like that in the father's prayer. They shortening in the codec and leave Alexandrian. Unlike with the act and so my question is, of which would actually be more reliable would it be more reliable simply because older even though it was found in places that preserve text better or is there a majority of manuscript more reliable because they are the majority and they were the one used for the bulk of the world's right so again it's a question that the scholars debate. But the majority of textual scholars today who way all the evidence and would you mention this is part of the evidence, but there is this a whole mountain of evidence that gets waived of would agree that the the manuscript tradition used by ESPN NIV is is the better one. So the older is better, and that scribes as a general rule, will lengthen rather than shorten the phrases get added in that something gets edited for clarity that if you had this to say you had three straight books in the Bible that mention prayer and fasting in the next. We just mention prayer in a similar context described more likely add and fasting, then remove it, but for for quite a number of reasons.
The great majority of Greek New Testament scholars today believe that the the older manuscripts that can assist such a dimension, or, or the more reliable there again. There is debate over this, but my specialty in terms of scholarship is more Hebrew Bible in Greek New Testament throws languages and text. That being said, it it does not phase me in the least if someone says what I really prefer reading from the new King James or that the MEP which are based on the same textual tradition that the the any dish… Either additions, with the exception of first on 570 contains, which is is absolutely not original, the additions where if it adds another reference to the blood of Jesus are as and fasting that they they are truthful and there in harmony with other biblical texts.
So it's absolutely nothing to lose sleep over. It's it's even you're the one running of Mark if he sent originally bark which seems clearly it's not. And even if it was, not originally view the Scripture universally. I believe everything in there is truthful and right so to me it's more of it in academic debate that could go either way.
But the great preponderance of bond scholarship would say go with the older manuscripts for quite a number of reasons. It's it's of interest, but it's nothing to consume all your time because the differences end up being being very minor and, ultimately, all within the range of orthodoxy. I thank you sir for the call.
I do appreciate it. Let us go to Peter in Cleveland Ohio right this was last weekend. Welcome to the line of fire. Hey Dr. Brown this is Peter, the passionate good friends with Phil Giuliani and Larry Tom… Now night I will quick you Christians have to endure the great white throne judgment. I was listening to a sermon by Billy Graham on you to work. He said he will not be at that great white throne judgment that we need not lead to some for sure our sins are paid for. We do not come under condemnation as followers of Jesus. Also, for sure. Romans 1412 tells us that all of us will give account to God. Believers and sickly things. 510 says that will appear before God's judgment seat. So Christians like Billy Graham.
Many others the church in which I got saved. We were told that their different judgments. It's that there's the judgment seat of Christ, we give account for our lives as believers and receive certain rewards and the great white throne judgment where the lost or cast in into the lake of fire. So if we appear before the great white throne judgment.
We are those who are not put under eternal condemnation because our names are written in the book of life. All those whose names are not written in the book of life are the ones who suffer punishment there. In Revelation 20. If there are two separate throws the judgment seat of Christ versus the great white throne, then it's at the former were we give account for our lives. It's also sobering thing.
I remember when women agreement help of got seriously ill. September 1989 at the age of 87 and and fell into a coma and stroke phone for, never came out of it and his wife, Martha told me she said it is especially good because it gives them more time to prepare to meet with God. This is the most devoted man that I knew but it was a very sobering thing for him to think that he was going to give account for his life before the Lord as a believer but I don't. My own view, it does after the great white throne. There is a separate judgment. The judgment seat of Christ. I just can't prove it decisively from the Bible. All right let us go to school to Michael in Brooklyn, New York. Welcome to the line of fire. I duck abound on at the thought. So at so about last week I rekindled with the old friend of mine from years ago and now we got to talk about many things and he have brought up how he read to the Quran with his partner and we started going back and forth and I told him I was saving Christ years now and when I mentioned the Bible he he said that he doesn't believe in the Bible because it was written by a white man and on it just baffled me and I started getting into some of the history you know the Bible and the Jewish roots and everything and he just will not he wouldn't accept it and it baffled me and he was is currently trying to explain why 2+2 = 4 by he was just not accepting. So I wanted to know enough. I see him again. What what I could I say to something. To rebut that claim because I know it wasn't by to try to talk to some of the heart and the heart completely filled the Bible and God, not just different. Michael, I'm sorry to hear that and it is hard when people reject truth University referencing a white man as opposed to dozens and dozens of different people who wrote the Bible.
So it's different than the Quran, which comes from the swingman Mohammed. Although simply for second that it became by divine inspiration, but in any case that the fact is aware that the Bible is written by dozens and dozens of different people. Most of these would accept that if you want to see a white man have use the Bible to exploit others and come up with some of the narrative. That's a whole other issue but there is interest in the Middle East 3000 years ago that there was there weren't predominately white men there at all if you want to show my text that may be to try to open up his his his thinking a little bit. The schema for the question. Someone asked me a few days ago taken to ask 21 presented the chapter where Paul is mistaken for an Egyptian terrorist right so just ask your friend okay you and your simple little of the test right okay so we get that so just ask explain the six plaintiff, how how is it that he's mistaken for an Egyptian terrorist visa white man. The people of Egypt, not white. There there there darker skinned Middle Eastern some some even black. So I just ask you how how did they get mistaken. How do you get mistaken or go to Exodus to the baby Moses right raised by Pharaoh's daughter in Egypt so 3500 years ago.
How does she raise it up a white kid as their own and everybody thinks that the this is her own kid. So I minutes is just so ridiculously wrong and and illogical bill. You could even say hey in numbers 12, Moses marries a Cushite news of Cushite sin. Ethiopian woman. So even if he was lighter skin is very African own one of the kids look like so you try to show him that you know Exodus 2 Moses being adopted by Pharaoh's daughter numbers 12 Moses marrying a black woman and then asked 21 Paul be mistaken for an Egyptian terrorist again. There's a massive stronghold here in the spiritually blind and in rebellion against the truth, but maybe this'll draw him enough room to think whoever told me the stuff is not telling me the truth about Islam ask him why Malcolm X was killed was part of it that he realized that there were Muslims there lighter skin that part of the reason anyway. May the Lord be with you.
And of course prayer prayer.
