I think it was a female child, if I recall, gave the child citizenship and they said they would cover all the costs, bring bring the child to Italy and we'll take care of her and England and the court said no. That's what government health care gives us. It is a horrific and here in the United States, people have already forgotten it is a Terry Schiavo case. I'll never forget that.

I'll never forget that. We tortured that woman to death. I mean, starving someone, someone dying of starvation, that's a horrible way to die and that's what we did. So I can tell you're upset about this and rightfully so. But this is the world we live in.

It doesn't mean it's okay when we need to let it go, but the world is full of killers and murderers and homosexuals and thieves and liars and extortionists, people who take bribes, people who are ungodly and it's rampant and God's gonna judge our country and it's being judged now. We're getting the president in the office that, you know, he's harming our country and I recommend everybody see the movie by Dinesh D'Souza Police State. I recommend you see it. It's gonna cost you five bucks. Go to, forward slash police state. Buy it, watch it. It's about two hours long.

It's worth it and I would recommend you, everybody see it and support him in this. This is what's coming. Because the Christians, because the Christians are not standing up and opposing this as they ought to as good godly people, the unbelievers are passing laws for their own convenience to kill that life which is an inconvenience to them. Yeah, that's what's happening. The Bible says, if my people, not the people, but if my people will repent, you know, I will heal their land and I mean, not some of us as individuals, but you know, those of us that are fighting the good fight, but the churches that aren't. Now that was spoken of to Covenant Israel, just so you know.

Right. And so the issue here is, you know, to what are Christians, what are they obligated to do? We've already been told what we're to do. We're to protect the innocent and we are to be out there fighting and I don't mean with fists, but I mean we're about to be fighting. We're with signs, with petitions, with mass marching.

This is how it's supposed to be and the Christians aren't doing what they're supposed to be doing and this is why the country is going downhill. All right. We're going to move along.

We've got callers. Okay, buddy? Okay. All right, man. All right.

Thanks, man. Okay. God bless. All right. Okay. God bless. Okay.

All right. Let's get to Scott from Spokane, Washington. Scott, welcome.

You're on the air. Hey, Matt. How's it going? Hey, Scott. How you doing, buddy? Doing well.

I just had a quick question in Matthew 11 27 is the text and so, you know, with this question just let me know ahead of time if inseparable operation sort of voids out this question entirely, but, you know, we're told that the father is whom predestined those to salvation and he gives those elect to the son and when I read Matthew 11 27 at the very end it says no one knows the father except the son and whomever the son wills to reveal him. And so my question is... Hold on. We've got a break. Oh, okay. Get back to the question. We're up in a break. So, hold on.

Okay. And, folks, that's a good question coming up about this good theology in that verse. I love that verse.

Matthew 11 27. We'll be right back after these messages. Please stay tuned. It's Matt Slick live taking your calls at 877-207-2276. Here's Matt Slick. All right, everybody. Welcome back to the show. If you want to give me a call, we have three open lines.

877-207-2276. Scott, get back on now. Okay. Yes, sir. So, my question was, I'll just quickly read 11 27, all things have been handed over to me by my father and no one knows the son except the father, nor does anyone know the father except the son and anyone to whom the son wills to reveal him. And so, my question is, the father predestined the elect and gave them to the son.

So, that's a set number. And my question is, does this allude to the possibility that Jesus could add to that, you know, that group beyond those that the father has? No. But the inseparable operations is what... No, no, no, no, the answer is no, because this is something that's done within the Trinitarian community before the foundation of the world.

It's not going to be altered at the incarnation. Okay? Okay. Okay. Well, then, let's click. What? Click. Oh, nothing. I just said, good.

Yeah, that's it. God, the father elected, gave him to the son and the son came to redeem the ones that elected. And that is a set number. We don't know who it is and we don't know how it works. So, Jesus isn't altering that divine plan. It's a logically necessary plan for those who reject it. And I'll tell you why it's logically necessary, because God knows all things from all eternity. Therefore, whatever he ordains to come to pass in which people are saved, that is already ordained. It's not as though God is throwing dice around, seeing what's going to happen. He just knows whatever's going to happen.

And even from that position, if God just knew who was going to pick him, then he gave those to the son from eternity past, then it still works that way. Okay? Okay. Well, thank you. Okay.

Makes sense, okay? Yes, sounds good. Okay. All right then. All right. Well, God bless. Okay. You too. All right.

We have nobody waiting. So, what I'm going to do is get some hate mail. I like hate mail. I do. I enjoy it.

And I hope you do too. And if you're a new listener, my real name is Matt Slick. It really is my name. And I'm a Christian apologist. And on Friday, sometimes, I read hate mail. And I've got a lot of it over the two decades that I've been doing radio. And so, I haven't read this one. And I enjoy hate mail. I get a kick out of it. So, here we go.

Let's just jump right into it. All right. Because you do not know what the Bible really teaches because you are too busy spewing this complete non-biblical Sunday church garbage that is not taught in the Bible anywhere. How absolutely pathetic.

So, I wish that person would call up and then we could have a discussion about it. Now, notice what this person just did. Judged me based upon what day of the week I worship on, on Sunday. What does Romans 14 say?

This is really simple stuff. And Romans 14 is a forgotten chapter. Anyway, the one who eats, verse 3, the one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat. And the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats for God has accepted him. Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master, he stands or falls and he will stand for the Lord is able to make him stand, verse 5. One person regards one day above another.

Another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. So, you know, when people like the obstreperous, vociferous anger group calls me up or they write an email like this, and I always like to talk to them.

I've had many, many, many discussions over the years on this kind of topic. And then I read them Romans 14 and they don't know what to do with it. It's really interesting because they're caught off guard because they don't study the Bible very much about these kind of things. They just, well, Saturday's got to be the day. Well, then why would Paul say every day is alike?

For some people that's okay. He's going to be convinced in your own mind. Why is he saying that here if we're going to worship on Saturday? And the thing they come back with, the only possible thing they can come back with is, was not talking about the Sabbath. And I ask them, is every day inclusive of the Sabbath, which is a Saturday? Is the phrase every day, does that include Saturdays?

Or is it somehow every day includes every day except for Saturday? And they say, that's what it means. I said, Oh, so can you show me that in the text?

And they can't. So these are legalists who, uh, so I was teaching on the Bible study last night. People who were legalists often have not died to the law are still living under the law, seeking to be justified by the law. And they don't know that the law has no jurisdiction over us any more like that. And that we were free to worship on any day we want.

We are because that's the nature of biblical theology and truth. All right. So that person, Oh, here's another one from the same person.

Cause it's the same font and everything in color. Did you finally figure out what the Bible really does say yet? Let me know. Thank you. Oh, uh, yeah, I did. And it's on Yeah.

It's on So, uh, here, wait a second. I want to reply to this. Uh, yes, I figured, hold on a sec. This is live email. Yes, I figured it out.

Uh, it's on hyphen everywhere. Uh, yes. Uh, thank you. Thank you. All right. There we go. So, uh, maybe I'll cause someone to get mad at me.

I don't, not that I want that, but if it does happen, for some reason I could kick out of it. All right. Uh, my statement on Janet Mefford, um, I was shocked when you get, this is an old email. I was shocked when your guest today lumped the ordination of women pastors and elders with ordinating active homosexual pastors as a sign of apostasy. But it is a sign of apostasy.

Ordaining women as pastors and elders and ordaining homosexuals as pastors and elders are both signs of apostasy. Okay. And I said, why did you not catch this?

I didn't catch it because it's nothing to catch. It's true. He is biblically wrong. And from his, I think this is what happened was, uh, this, I was on another radio show a while back and we had this discussion and this was forwarded to me from the other radio shows on. He is biblically wrong. And from his attitudes about preaching to congregation, he sounded arrogant and condescending. You know, I get that a lot, you know, from people when I say, I'm sorry, women are not to be pastors and elders.

And here's the reason why here's the versus not code them. You know, give me 30 seconds. I quote them and blah, blah, blah. You're arrogant. Uh, okay. That's probably true, but can you deal with what I actually said? You're, you're, you're just mean. Well, maybe that's true too, but can you deal with what was said? I've noticed that this happens a lot is that people will insult me, uh, just flat out without giving a defense. And, uh, it does happen anyway. He says, uh, no, she goes on. I was quite appalled at his statement and know that God is not pleased. Really.

And how does she know that issue that had the book of second opinions to that's could be what it is, you know, second opinions next to the book of deuterectomy. So, uh, where people get this stuff, I'm sorry. You know, here we go again. Watch this. Okay.

I'm gonna do it again. I don't know how many times I've done this over 20 years of radio, but I will be glad to go out to your church. We can arrange a formal public debate on whether or not the Bible teaches that you can, uh, that women pastors and elders are biblical. Okay. That's a debate topic. I've offered this challenge periodically for many years and not a single person has accepted the challenge. Now, why is that?

Is it because I would read the Bible? Yeah, that's where it would be. All right. Hey folks, we'll be right back after these messages. Please stay tuned. It's Matt Slick live taking your calls at 877-207-2276.

Here's Matt Slick. All right, everybody. Welcome back to the show.

I'm chuckling because I just remembered a line in a movie, which I can't repeat wasn't cussing or anything, but the way it was delivered cracked me up and I just popped into my head. Oh, so I'm going to read the rest of this email that this person, in fact, this email I just found out is a few years old and I just emailed the person back during the break. And I said, I said, have you repented of your false doctrine of women pastors and elders yet?

So we'll see. At any rate, to go on this email, the person says, Catherine says, I was quite appalled at his statement and know that God is not pleased as she knows what God wants. There's no scripture for her position. It would be, she goes on, it would take too much to show here that women in leadership is biblical sound central to God's heart for the body to function as the spirit chooses to give gifts and raise up women to lead.

And you know, this kind of sentiment, uh, is, is pretty bad. It's just, it's an appeal to a notion, not appeal to scripture. You know, when the Bible says, when Peter, Peter, when Paul says, you know, do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but remain silent for Adam was first created. Well, what does that mean? You know, and appoint elders, uh, in the city of any man, be above reproach, et cetera. What does that mean? It means women.

It does. Or when an elder, uh, by definition, a pastor's an elder and the elders to be, uh, under me, a husband of one wife and, um, how's a woman to do that? How does one fit that bill? And so this is why I believe that, uh, nobody in roughly, uh, you know, 20 years of radio, nobody has accepted the challenge for me to do a public formal debate. Do you want to fly out to their church? I think I can get a church locally here to house it.

I have connections and, um, you can get that going and you can fly out here if you wanted to. And we could do a public debate, have the cameras on, and each person could get a copy of the debate once it's over. So I would like that, you know, does the Bible support women, pastors and elders? That would be the topic. Okay.

That'll be it. I would use scripture and the other person could try new scripture and I would hope that that would happen, but it hasn't. And I don't believe it ever will because all I got to do is go to my page and page and read my arguments and they're right there. And every now and then when I find a church online that has women pastors and elders, I email them and I say, why are you doing this? And the Bible says that I have a little thing I give right here.

It says this right here. Why are you doing this? You're going to get scripture. And mostly they never respond. Mostly they just never respond.

I had a discussion with a guy about 10 years ago here, women pastors, women elders at the church he was going to, and I talked to him as an assistant pastor. We had a nice polite conversation and I answered every objection, every challenge he had. He was dismissive of the ones that I brought up. And he said at the end, he said, well, we just have to disagree. And I said, no, we don't just disagree. You're wrong. You need to repent.

And he didn't like that. But I said it politely, but it's true. It's true. Oh, that's right. Mr. Bill says, Matt, all you have to do is go to the Bible. That's all I got to do.

That's all I got to do. And I would like it that they would do that. They'd go to Phoebe. They would go to Deborah. You know, they would do stuff like that. And I would be listening for the ripping of the verses out of context. All right.

Let's see. This person says, goes on as sexual sin by leaders is always biblically wrong. That's correct. Apostasy and times falling away.

Much of this is based on not acknowledging Jesus as God and salvation through him alone with his word as authority in our lives. You are. She's correct there. I was shocked and dismayed to hear his words. Pride and division are tools of Satan. And this man will have to answer for this accusation and sin. So now all of a sudden I'm in sin for saying women are not to be pastors and elders when Paul, the apostle clearly teaches her not to be. I wonder if she has repented and she goes on and you will have to answer for not confronting this lie. Yeah, I have confronted your lie. Anyway, I won't be listening to your show any longer. Okay. That's fine because of Jesus, Catherine.

I won't read the last name. So, uh, that's a good hate mail. That's a good generally. I think the ladies get better hate mails than the guys for two reasons. Generally speaking, they're a little bit more uh, precise in their grammar and they're better in it. They're a little bit more emotional. And I like that.

I like the emotional stuff because I think it's entertaining when they use that over scripture. Um, how much I just raised some eyebrows out there. Yes I did.

But Hey, that's what the Bible says. I challenge you here. The other one, I challenge you to telephone recorded.

I challenge you to when was this as a, why were they getting these old ones from a long time ago? Maybe I answered this guy. I did answer them already.

And anyway, um, I challenge you to a telephone recorded debate. You blind heretic. Yes. That's the way to start off.

That's good. Uh, visit this Catholic website. Um, this will be good for your, our readers. The debate will concern the identity of the one and only true religion and also the unbiblical nature of justification through faith alone and the absurdity of Protestantism.

This telephone recorded debate will run on a free form. You know, this is, this is what I get. I'm going to continue reading, but I always like these because they tell me how it's going to be. They don't ask, they proclaim, they pronounce, they tell me, they inform me, this is how it's going to be. I'm like, can you at least ask? Can you be polite?

They don't do that. Every now and then I get that attitude here. And this is the attitude.

This telephone recorded debate will run on a free form and then a cross examination format, ensuring fairness, excuse me, and equal time to each side. This prevents you from cutting me off your radio while you're getting decimated. Wow. Wow. Boy, this guy's confident.

Don't run away like the woman and coward that you are. Whoa, that's not nice. You just insulted women. You know, saying that that cowardice is associated with being a woman. Are you kidding? There are women who have far more courage than a lot of men.

Now that's uncalled for. I would quote that in a debate. If I was debating, I'd say, what do you mean by this? Like don't run away like a woman and coward you are.

What do you hate women? Boy, this guy's not rational. He says, you read so many Protestant community mythologies.

I do. What do I read? What, you know, like the book of Romans? He goes on, you can reach me through this private email of mine, blah, blah, blah. It makes no difference whether it's on your radio show or not, as long as the debate conditions and format are stated at the beginning.

Oh, it will be good for you to study up. I know your radio show that allegedly attempted to refute justification through faith and works. It was pathetic.

Um, let's see, let's see, let's see, let's see if I'm listening to yourself for the blah, blah, blah. Yeah. Okay. You know, it's, it's interesting. I find that a lot of members of the Catholic church, um, are exceedingly, uh, full of hate, not all of them, but a lot, you know, they're just full of hate and pride. Um, I noticed that, but not knocking all of them. A lot of, cause a lot of them though, I will say this are pretty nice too though, but you know, it can happen. All right.

We have nobody waiting. So I'm going to, nobody calling these more. Hey male, I have to inform you in charity that Protestantism is a false religion of man that leads to condemnation. It would seem that as a result of cognitive dissonance, you temporarily downplay the obvious inherent inconsistencies of your manmade religion. One of the pillars of your false religion is that the Holy Spirit will guide the individual believer while reading the Bible. But obviously the 50,000 plus growing denominations stand as a constant irrefutable proof that the doctrine of Protestantism are not the spirit of truth.

See, this is really faulty logic. They say that 50,000, there aren't 50,000. And, uh, you know, I asked him, where do you get this number? Well, you just gossip because they don't know where they get this.

Nobody does hear this. 50,000 the Protestant denomination. Really? What are they? Can you name me five? What are they?

Uh, and where'd you get the 50,000 from? Okay. And they don't, they don't have any answers. So I say, you don't know you're spreading gossip. And, um, and just because we have differences of opinion on minor error errors doesn't mean that we're wrong.

Just as Catholics disagree on minor errors within their heresies. I'll go on here. Any honest person. Oh, gee, these are always good things to say.

If you're honest, you'll believe what I tell you. That's how it comes down to it. Any honest person would realize that since the original founders of Protestantism disagreed with each other on crucial budget doctrine, uh, we did not say what they are.

I'm scanning ahead. He's just listing like Zwingli and Calvin and Luther, but he doesn't say which doctrines they're disagreeing on. He says, then Protestantism is false. See, that's ridiculous. It's faulty logic.

So if two Catholics disagree, then does that mean Catholicism is false? These guys cannot think. That's another thing is I've, I've met so many people and I'll point this out that that's not logical. You're saying they still can't see it. They're so radicalized that they can't see straight.

You should visit this one website for the most important information that you can ever see in your life. There's absolutely no salvation outside the Catholic church. That's right.

If you're not a Roman Catholic and belong to the Roman Catholic church, you can't go to heaven because it's about membership in the true church, not Jesus, but the true church. And that week is what we call cult mentality. Hey, there's the, uh, break music. We'll be right back after these messages. Please stay tuned. All right, welcome back to the show. Last segment of this wonderful Friday. If you want to give me a call, 877-207-2276.

We have nobody waiting right now. I guess people are enjoying me doing the hate mail and I read one more during the break and I laughed. This was good. This is, I like this one.

And this is what the email says. Just reach up to your head. See if there's a little switch there.

Please move it to the on position. Thank you. Yes, that's awesome. That is a good one.

That's what I'll say when I'm talking to Catholics and Eastern Orthodox and they get really tweaked. Because I'll say stuff, right? And they go, like a little dog on a leash and they want to get me, right? They're mad at me.

And so what I'll do sometimes, Hey, can you do me a favor? They go, what? Look behind you wherever you are. Just look behind you.

They go, what? Why? Are you looking behind yourself?

Are you looking? Look down. Why? Just see if your diapers are filled. I'll say that to them because it's the tweak, you know, cause I'm to say stuff and it's a lot of fun sometimes to have fun, but you know, Hey, this is the kind of thing I would say, look, is there a switch on your head? Please move it to the on position. I think I'm gonna start using that one. I like that one.

Check switch on skull, move to on position. Next. Oh, that's pretty good. I like that one. I do. That's good stuff.

All right, let's get another one. There is, there is a way to know the truth, but you are obviously afraid of taking it. That's it? Oh, and it says, this is the subject. Your intelligence towards Mormonism is sadly lacking.

My intelligence is lacking. How about my information on Mormonism? You know, all the stuff I've been studying on it for years and years. And I know some of the world's experts on Mormonism. They're friends of mine. And I can talk to them about anything about Mormonism anytime. Yeah.

I am. My, uh, your intelligence toward Mormonism is sadly lacking. That reminds me probably gonna have Bill McKeever on, uh, or, uh, Eric Johnson on Monday or Tuesday next week, because, uh, they're doing a grand opening of a Mormon, not a Mormon thing, a Christian. I forget the name of it because they just opened it up.

The official opening is next week in Sandy, Utah. And I may go down there. Just depends. I've got a lot of driving to do this week coming up, but it takes someone out to another city for a doctor appointment.

He can't drive that far and stuff like that, you know, which is fine. And, um, and my wedding anniversary is next week, too. 36 years, my wife and I are married. She's so lucky to have me, man.

She's a lucky woman. And, uh, so the, the Mormon opening thing, whatever, oh, Bill's not listening. Bill and Eric are listening. And if, Oh, I don't, Terry's not listening cause she has a different job now, but if they're listening, the Mormon open building thing that they're doing, uh, next week, I want to get down there for it. Utah Christian Research Center. Thank you, Charlie.

If it wasn't for people making me look good, I would look even worse. So the Utah Christian Research Center grand opening is from the 11th to the 24th. The 11th to the 24th. So that means then that I could get down there next week, but that's on a Friday.

So I had to have dinner with my wife on Friday. So that's out and I can't get down there for that. Maybe I'll go on the first weekend of December, something like that. Go to private tour, private tour. I don't know, but it's really a great thing. What they're doing there is Bill has shown me, um, videos and stuff.

He showed me some stuff. We've had calls about it and it's a nice building and they're going to have a library in there. They're going to have a place for people to meet, to teach, uh, relax and all that.

And, um, you know, so it's gonna be great. I'll be down there sometime too. And I'll let you guys know when I'm going to be there and you can meet you. It'd be fun, you know, be fun to meet us in Draper. All right. Uh, let's see, let's get over to here.

Let's get over to here. Uh, your name is slick. How very appropriate. That's the insult.

That's it. That's a hate mail. Now I have to give this one a thumbs up because not only did the person think to use my name, which really is slick, but associated with it, just an implication of impropriety by saying it is appropriate that it's my name. This is clever and I appreciate that.

Not many can do that and have such, uh, excellent insult-ness in such a short span while attacking the individual, uh, whose last name is slick. That's pretty good. That's pretty good. If I met that person, I'd go, that was good.

Seriously. High five. I like that one. All right. Let's get on the air. Let's get to, oh wow. Simon from Simon from Norway. Hey Simon, welcome. You're on the air. Hello. Hi Matt.

Thank you. I heard you, um, talk earlier in the program today about, uh, being a Christian in politics. Uh, and, uh, I actually am, uh, in politics.

Uh, you said I, last time I called many months ago, uh, I was sitting, I was going to run again. Uh, you said if you lived here, you'd vote for me. Now we do have voter ID here, so I don't think you would get away with it, but, but, uh, but I did get reelected. So yeah.

Yeah. And the thing is, I'm, I'm in the, I was in the Christian, uh, democratic party. Uh, but they, they didn't want me there because I'm Christian. So, uh, so then, uh, some people here that, uh, in the, in the, that, in their municipality here, said, well, let's form another party. So we formed a local division of a Christian conservative party and we got enough votes. So, um, my question is though, that you said that you all, if you ran for office, uh, you wouldn't get elected and you would, you know, people would just call you so and so, uh, homophobe and whatever.

But the thing is, I don't think that's a reason for not running if you're considering running because, uh, you might be called both. Yeah. Okay.

Yeah. You know, I mean, I'm going to do it. I would go for the presidency. I would just jump right in the deep end because I'm as qualified as Biden is. So he's incompetent and I'm basically incompetent. So, Hey, we're, we're even if he can do it, I could do it.

All I need is a bunch of people to stuff the ballots like he did and the liberal leftist media to slant stuff and suppress information like it was done. Then I could win, you know? Yeah. Yeah. Well, I'm just, I just think that, you know, I'm, I'm in politics locally here, but you know, it does give a, uh, a position and, and a voice to be able to, uh, to speak up, you know, even in national matters.

So, so, uh, you know, you don't have to run for president or prime minister or whatever right away, but, you know, you start off in a place where there's influence, which can, which can have a, uh, a large effect on, on many people. So, yeah. You know, I don't know how you are, but I've always, you know, I've ever, now and then people wonder about this during an office, whatever, because the only reason I'd think about it because of my last name, it fits perfectly. So, you know, it's just like, you know, it would work and, you know, I mean, can you imagine the insults and the jokes coming out?

Oh, it'd be awesome. You know, but here I was thinking, you know, I'm up there and they're interviewed and you're, are you against homosexuality? Yes, I am. Just, you know, what about it? You know? Yeah. Yeah. It's, it's a sin. Yeah. I believe it's a sin. That's right. It doesn't mean I hate them, but it's a sin. Yeah.

I should be pushing in our children. So what's the problem with that? Am I allowed to have my opinion? You know? Yeah. I mean, those are the types of arguments that I give when we've had these issues of flying the rainbow flag and those such issues here. You know, I have argued against that also biblically, just staying saying from the political pulpit, you know, that it's, it's, it's against God's will that we, that we fly these flags.

So we, we must not do it. Yeah. That's right.

And I would ask them, can you fly, you know, can you put a cross up there too sometime in any buildings? I mean, just fair. Our national flag. Oh, there you go. Oh, that's true. Yeah. Oh yeah. So saying, why don't we just raise the Norwegian flag?

You know, it unifies everybody. Yeah. There you go. So now make me want to move over there and vote for you. Get a quick citizenship somehow and vote for you. Sure. Yeah.

Locally, you just have to live here for three years and then you can vote, even if you're not a citizen. I guess it's not going to happen. Tell my wife, Hey, Han, I know you don't like the cold here in Idaho. How about Norway?

I'd get this weird stare. It'd be, it'd be interesting. Yeah. I want to go to Norway sometime. I'd love to go there.

I would have fun to go there. Yeah. It would be good. Yeah. All right.

Well, I listened to your show pretty much every day, even though it's very late in the evening. What time is it there in Norway? It's five to one. So 1255 at night. Oh, that's early.

I don't go to bed till two or three. So that's, that's, that's easy. Yeah, no problem. But I'm glad you're listening. So I usually listen to your show live, but not every day.

I catch it on recording on rumble. But today it's Friday, so I stayed up. Oh, good. All right, man. Well, God bless, man. God bless. Yeah.

And by the way, great seeing you on the podcast with Eli and Cy and that other guy for this, uh, Epic, uh, round table. I liked those fun things. It's uh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I want to start doing those too, but I'm so stinking busy, but yep. Yeah.

We'll do those too. All right. And, uh, and also I, unfortunately I, I cut the subscription to the Patreon since you're obviously not on there, but, uh, I went in and started donating, uh, by, by credit card instead.

So I get enough value for my money by listening to the radio. Oh, appreciate that. But I am thinking about starting a Patreon again, but I don't know what people would want me to do with it. Cause I've already gotten so much other things going, but, uh, we'll see, you know? Yeah. Yeah. All right.

Well, you got our support here from Norway. So I appreciate it. Yeah. All right. Yeah.

In dollars, not corners though. Yeah. Okay. All right. Bye. Bye. Okay. Bye.

All right. How about that from Norway? We get listeners. We've had from Japan, we've had them from, uh, I think Korea also had callers over the years.

Anyway, and, uh, Poland and some other stuff. So, uh, we've got about two minutes left in the show. And what I'm going to do is read one more hate mail and then make it, you know, closing comment and stuff. I like this hate mail. This is a good, it says, uh, you're an absolute idiot and have no idea what you're talking about. Anyone who believes what you write is a fool.

Wow. You know, I do enjoy hate mail. And why is that? Why do you think? I think it's because when you're doing the work of the Lord, the world's going to hate you. When you shine your light, the world's going to hate you.

And think about this. If the world loves you and everybody loves you for everything you do and stand for that, you're not following Christ. There would be a peace with people, but if they love everything about you, then something's wrong because the world hates the light and it hates the truth of who Christ is. I'm not saying be offensive just to be offensive, but I am saying that truth is what offense people. And our job is to speak the truth of who Jesus Christ is, not for the purpose of being offensive.

Let the Lord Jesus be the offense, not us. And, uh, that's what it needs to be. So there you go. I hope you all had a great, um, a great Friday and I'll be on the air on Monday and Tuesday, full days, Monday and full day, Tuesday, and then off Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, there's a lot going on and that'll be that. So I hope you all have a great weekend and that you have a good time in church when you get to church on Sunday.

On Sunday. So check it out and, uh, you know, pray, pray with this ministry and please consider supporting us. I don't ask very often, but forward slash donates. We do need that support because that's how we stay on the air.

It's how we stay, uh, supporting missionaries and all of that kind of stuff. And Lord bless you by his grace back on the air on Monday. We'll talk to you then. See you. Bye. Okay. Another program powered by the truth network.
