The following is a prerecorded program you got questions, we've got answers stage for the line of fire with your host activist all the international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown your voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution Michael Brown was the director of the coalition of conscience and president of fire school of ministry get into the line of fire valves like always 866-34-TRUTH that's 866-34-TRUTH your Jim is Dr. Michael Brown hey friends, welcome to light a fire. This is my route delighted to with you to day. I am actually doing something right now right humans before commits after as you're listening to the broadcast.

Watching the broadcast never done before in my life that that is if you're if you're viewing listening live so they have never done before in my life. A real neat opportunity to glorify God get a message out and I'll tell you about it doubling on Monday but rather than taking your calls live today. I am answering questions that were posted on twitter. I solicited them Wednesday night Thursday morning and now I am answering them for you on this Friday broadcast so no calls today, but I trust you will be blessed is the same again.

You may be watching a different day listening a different table welcome to the broadcast okay Annamarie asked this Annamarie is God's promise in Exodus 2026. I believe she meant 2326 women will lose their babies and they won't be infertile just for Old Testament Israelites supplied to Christians at all. How can we make sense of this passage okay in the Torah. There are several promises given that were for the nation of Israel as a whole based in obedience based on worship based on honoring the Lord and I focused on these because of my doctoral dissertation fact will start with heat with Exodus chapter 15 verse 26 to go there first Exodus 15 verse 26 I focused on these verses in my doctoral dissertation on the Hebrew rough on the concept of healing in the Old Testament in the ancient near East so in Exodus 15 God's just tested the children of Israel, waters of mar bitter waters were the complainant and God made the Bridgewater suite is, is there God made a statute with them. In Exodus 1526 says this got assist Israel if you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God if you do what is right in his eyes pay attention to his commandments and keep all his decrees. I will put none of the diseases on you, plus your succubus rhyme a put none of the disease on which I put on the Egyptians key on the other not affect for I am the Lord your healer.

That was interesting. First is the diseases that were put on Egypt and was just physical sickness but they were plagues and disasters about the consul they are all under the heading of of muscle sickness or plague disaster in terms of the water usage. So all those, Leticia succubus Ramos and Melissa all diseases, plagues that the pottage of the will put on you can. The other profession, for I am the Lord your healer. That's the first of those promises of God, saying Israel if you will follow me in obedience is a nation will be smitten with these diseases. Some your healer so healing is not just the physical disease with these other disasters as well. Now next passage is Exodus chapter 23 Exodus chapter 23 versus 25 and 26 Exodus 23 versus 25 and 26 and God says there if you will worship and serve the Lord your God if if you will not worship and serve the gods of the nations right. But if you're worship here just okay start here. If you serve and worship so the Hebrew of vodka need to serve/to worship other love the Lord your God, he will bless your food in your water is the first thing you need to to be sustained right healthy water healthy food will bless your food more and then he says I will take sickness from your midst. None will miscarry or be barren in your land and I will fill up the number of your days.

So here's a promise of a totemic of the Nile has a very rocky lock will come in the mess of a house which you must allow me to Rebecca that that's the first part of it and and I've often when I'm asked sometimes to pray over Neil with photos of Ukraine. He brought all pray those words of blessing of soul.

Let's just think about what's written there. God says that he'll take sickness out of it. So once again sickness understood in them. Itself is a curse negative thing and none will miscarry be barren. Rather you live a full Iceman. So this is all the fundamentals needed for life and sustenance right food supply, water supply, healing sickness or sickness removed from your midst. Women able to reproduce and full life long life that would be ideal with Israel as a nation will be the Lord. The last passage. One look at is Deuteronomy chapter 7 verses 14 and 15. It says is a result. Again, just as here in excess. 23. As a result of Israel turning away from idols and and destroying the idols in the land and worshiping the Lord alone, he says, and in Deuteronomy chapter 7 universe 14 by Ruth TCM. Recall how many you will be blessed more than any other people's there will not be male or female, barren among you or your livestock, although not the Lord will remove all sickness from you and he will not inflict on you any of the terrible diseases of Egypt, that you knew, but will inflict them on all who teach so once again, a promise to remove sickness and a promise of fertility. This is in keeping with Old Testament promises in obedience to the Lord would bring blessing including healing, health, prosperity in terms of your grain would be with your fields would produce and there would be no barrenness or miscarry. Then as it is a judgment, sickness, premature death, barrenness fields, unable to reproduce. No crops, famine and drought. These were curses so how do we apply this to ourselves as believers in the New Testament we have a better covenant based on better promises to me is ludicrous to think that God promised Israel healing on a national level and sickness in and of itself time of severe disease and coming as a result of divine judgment, literally 600 judgment about what it does come as judgment.

It is this a curse right. It seems ludicrous to me that under a new and better covenant that that which was a curse in the new test in the Otis becomes a blessing and a new and that which is a blessing in the Otis becomes a curse and loose it. That healing was a blessing in the Old Testament on the sauna when I was curse or or or that that healing that would sickness terrible sickness and disease coming curse now covenant must not see that all however these were promises to corporate national is really we cannot just take in civil anything was promise there is for me what I would do is say God in your goodness to Israel if I was I was a woman wanted to have children I would say, God, you promised this to Israel. This was part of your nature. This is an expression of your goodness and was a promised Israel based in obedience. I'm asking you to do this for me based on grace I'm asking to provide a miracle in my womb based on grace. If I were a woman unable to conceive. I would absolutely make an application of the principle based on the nature of God and say Lord Jewett for me today to glorify your name and and as it still remains life health. Bless the these are good things from God.

So I would absolutely not say I have a covenant right to it, but rather say Lord through your grace. Do even more now than you promise to do for Israel. Okay alum Sue asked this one of the claim that according to Deuteronomy 30 all of the trolls be binding in the time leading up to the breaking in of the messianic age response that the prophecies condition of this seemed to work with the scriptures elsewhere affirm its fulfillment right so this is a passage that traditional Jews would raise to say that only Jesus that the Messiah looking for all we have to do is go back to observe the Torah and its accessible to us. There's no reason we can't do it and then with that will come the fall messianic redemption understand that reading I would answer it in one of two ways. One way is agree with agree with that view, but that rightly understanding the Torah rightly found the turret includes the Messiah that there that to reject him and to reject how he fulfills the Torah is to nullify the tour so I would say it's not the way of traditional Judaism, but the way of Scripture and the Torah showing Israel's failure, Israel's need for Messiah Messiah's work of redemption and atonement side being the last great national profit through him we come to God, Messiah, fulfilling the role of high priest. So, through him, we come to God. So there is a turning back to God. But it's Torah as expressed through short he gives meaning to Sabbath, not Jewish tradition.

That's one way you could read it every friend of mine. One of the world's top Old Testament scholars estimate he reads that Yeshua's interpretation of the Torah is the correct one, not the way of rabbinic tradition is going to read which which is this went when you look at the passage okay. Deuteronomy 31st you you. Deuteronomy 2929 affirms the secret things Mansa Laura got out his open revealed loss to us on to our children forever, that we may do all the words of the Torah and then Deuteronomy 31 all these things, and you write the blessing and the curse which have set before you set your scattered among the nations, and you come to your senses and realize okay we blown it. Send the term back to the Lord. Then you take that step toward Sam and the Lord will circumcise your heart and restore you to the land. It can also be read that that's part of the Sinai covenant, which failed that the Jewish people never did that that to this day we came back to the land, not through repentance but through mercy in them. The major pioneers leading the way with themselves, not believers. Which is why most of the religious Jewish world opposed it. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, sentiments, chains, many ways. After the Holocaust, but this is not the result of Jewish pens. This was purely the result of divine mercy. So the better answer or an all alternate and alternate answer would be that this was never filled and will never be fulfilled that is under the Sinai covenant and ghosting here is it's available turn, repent, and we still don't do it as a nation and so he brings us back to the land purely is grace, and purely in his mercy, and you can make a good argument for that because if you read on after this and and in 31 of the chapters that follow Moses is pretty much guaranteeing his people really disobeys loss of no new dissipates can only get worse after my death to the Torah than speaks to Israel convicts Israel guilt the Torah fulfills its purpose by reviewing our guilt reviewing our sin and God's perfection and showing how we come under divine judgment and how to matter what we try to do improve ourselves. We keep falling short. So now God has mercy and this is what he then does that would be another way.

One is self. Another is it shows our failure. We will file the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the minor fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown drawing is on the line of fire on this, especially I'm not take. I am doing some special today have never done before.

Hopefully way that really glorifies of the really glorify the Lord talk to more about it doubling on Monday give you the update may be post some things in social media over the week and we shall see. But I am answering questions that reported posted on Twitter Wednesday night Thursday morning early Thursday afternoon, so no need to call because we will be taking calls today.

Paul B asked this to consider Genesis quotes to be accurate or editorialized by Moses, especially in regards to early patriarchs referring to Yahweh before Exodus 3.

Also, see Genesis 41B read I received a man Yahweh commentaries disagree with regard to Genesis 41, though it should not be translated. I received or acquired a man Yahweh as if Eve thought that Seth, who was was born after after Abel had been killed by by Kane as if Seth was Yahweh incarnate or they were expecting a divine concatenation of certain somethings with with the Lord.

I received a man with the help of the Lord. That's sub of given birth to a male child with the help of the Lord. That's all this being said, as as for Genesis quotes being editorialized by Moses. I would expect that that is there is a direct quote that someone made that became famous and Moses is courting it as such, than that's how it's being related accurately as as spoken. If there are accounts that have been recorded as conversations that these were either passed down orally or revealed supernaturally know whatever you want to come up with a combination of both of the substance.

I would obviously have to believe to be true and accurate.

Otherwise, it would be Scripture which are asking specifically about the use of Yahweh, whereas Exodus 3 or Exodus 6. In particular, God says that that he was revealed previously as L Shaddai, the previously he was known by the name Yahweh or where he explains his name Yahweh for pressing correctly in Exodus 3 of no I I I do not believe that the name was unknown. I believe that the full revelation of that name does not come about to the exes that God acting as Israel's covenant God does not come about at that time and that he was primarily known and is person's L Shaddai which may be the God of abundant provision in terms of of power and might, by the way, they're all these ideas about Shaddai. Some say the many breasted God because the Hebrew word for breasts is Shaddai and forget it nonsense clear that those are female fertility deities forget that no critics was related to shade the demon that's no forget that obviously the how but he's the goddess more than enough Hebrew shaft die. That's just homiletical that that's not the etymology of the word, that would be homiletical why then did the ancient translators Septuagint. For example, Vulgate understood it to be understand it to be almighty and out the best answer is it it it could be related to the Akkadian Evelyn Assyrian workshop do mountain dislike spoken was as a rock or fortress is mountainous with speaks of his power, his mitered and and in the patriarchal narratives is his miraculous intervention in intervention intervention with children, etc. you know Ida Baron Williamson got moving in that way.

So perhaps being known as L Shaddai but into the in terms of the fulfillment of his covenant promises disrobing on his Yahweh. That comes later to be the best with right now I could be that they now it was an what was editorialized in because that's how we refer to him you Moses day the city referred to but or or later editors change that because the same God being prayed to but I personally like that. I think that is a reflection of the patriarchs knew him by the name but did not express the fullness of his revelation by that name. You know this this one question generated a lot of controversy and we can tackle right James wife. Yes, the James White, Dr. James wife.

He said this is true that James White can whip you in a bike race.

Even if you only used one leg so I decided to respond to that here now.

Of course, I'm here now to I said I'll answer that one.

Here, since it will be way too controversial for radio. This is what I tweeted back within Jewish style answering a question with a question. My tweet response was is a true Michael Brown could whip James White in the Hebrew Bible reading contest using only one I so he responded well. What say you, is it true that James White could meet Michael Brown beat Michael Brown reading the CB GM data for acts while riding his bike in 115° heat sought. Of course I'm not can be intimidated by James wife.

So I took him on said to my dear friend just as true as it is that Michael Brown could be James White and understanding telecom to commentaries while rolling a freezing cold garage which he replied with rabbis allow you to read Toma ball rolling in a freezing cold garage that is the question of the ages which I responded with, indeed, and Peter responded. Can we look forward to a video debate while you are both on your machines. I like that on the click like on that right a little bantering fun with my friend esteemed apologist and theologian Dr. James wife and my great debating opponent.

But the great show we have is when we debate side-by-side together all all right.

Barry asked this question all now interestingly, his bio Jesus follower Bible lover, I would learn a husband grandpa motorcyclist to tongue cancer survivor, metabolic nutrition, global traveler use my own, but it okay this I basically got it just okay okay okay Barry's question, how do we address the issue of intersex people, especially when the chromosomes are different than their physical identity a legitimate birth condition. Okay, so this is 100% separate from gay activists.

This is 100% separate from sexual orientation or biological male sissies attracted to women or biological female sees a biological male sissies attracted to men or biological female so she's attracted to women unrelated to his unrelated to the vast majority of those who identify as Christian.

The vast majority of those who identify as transgender are biological and chromosomal males identify as females or females identify as males percentage of those people on the planet who are legitimately intersex percentage is less than 1%. It is a physical, a real physical condition dislike. If you are blind in one eye.

Just like if if you have MS, just like if you have rheumatoid arthritis cripples your hands is a physical condition but it is a condition that is in most cases manifest at birth or as then the person grows up. This condition that was with them from the start becomes evident.

In other words, it may be that someone looks to be biologically male and then as they start to develop, they start to develop as a female, or the opposite is true. There are others that are born with ambiguous genitalia or dual genitalia. These would be all variations of intersex and it's it's very complex. It requires tremendous compassion and sensitivity. I can imagine some of the trauma that intersex person us to live with, especially as they grow and they begin to develop differently, though I noticed, emotional trauma is very real that that transgender individuals suffer from not minimizing that.

I'm simply saying that this is a different kind, because it is it is physical it is, is not simply mental, emotional, psychological, is physical so what we do with such people. First, we need to really listen and understand their issues because in most cases, things we haven't been exposed to before his most cases people are intersex and of living a certain way appearing to be there fully male or fully female and was really close with them. You might of those in estimate how many people you know better intersex. How may people you met you like you wouldn't even know. For the most part so the first thing when you sit down and find out what's the whole story. What's the issue, and if the person is going through gender confusion or like I don't even know if I male or female on my same-sex attracted opposite is six attracted then you want have much more compassion and understanding than you even more compassion and understanding for someone that same-sex attracted or identify stressed and who's not intersex. From what I understand, the best thing to do as the person is developing is to see is there are they predominantly male or female, based on biology chromosomes. If so, are they at home and that identity within and without, then let's do what we can to reinforce that it's a clear mix.

If you can't tell should be identify this person is male or female biologic maker comes only then have the thought of always felt like a more forcefully, man.

That's I felt this out once I got through puberty. So if if the biology and chromosomes could go either way or unclear. Then the person's internal identity is important and you do what you can, then to bring the physical to match that but otherwise were the physical is definitely some is deftly a biological male you don't try to turn a person to female, nor do support same-sex attraction when you have the ambiguity of the case of intersex must be compassionate must profess to understand. I know many intersex folks end up in the file. I with your letter freakier different benefit among different people living in an error on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown were boys of moral cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown, welcome back to the special of the questions got answers today. I am taking questions that were posted on twitter so good to be responding to these questions and not taking calls and a bit more in-depth answer when I can to these questions. Here's one from Matthew what is your take on the quantity of people. The Bible describes as taking part in the Exodus we should take the quantity of people. The Bible describes as taking part in the Exodus. If we are to go with the numbers at face value that are given to us in the book of numbers, in particular, we have a census at the beginning of the wilderness wanderings and senses at the end of the wilderness wanderings.

The estimate would normally be between two and 3 million people right now. Let's just think the modern state of Israel today has Israel proper that is accepted as the nation of Israel between the Israeli and Arab population for the Jewish and Arab population is what about 7 1/2 million.

Some around their little higher and then the Palestinians living in Gaza and Judea's America the West Bank with that's another five 6 million revenue numbers are exactly but let's just say it roughly 13 million people living there now.

Parts are very crowded of the parts are still open. The idea of two or 3 million Israelites living there coming in from it into the promised land is really not not too high, not impossible, not unimaginable, and certainly fully sustainable. However, there other questions that are raised which is why Matthew, you're erasing this for the sums to be taken literally, would that be in keeping with the population in Egypt and and how dominant the Israelites may have been in Egypt while if there were that many.

They certainly would've been a threat to Egypt and think ahead. They could just leave at any point were heavily dependent on that would that would make sense. Is there any archaeological evidence of an Exodus that large that many people that would be one?

Another? Would be the question of them being sustained in the wilderness, but that was considered miraculous. From day one God constantly pointed back to it as miraculous.

Is there evidence of invasion of the land of Canaan and scale it be that wide or the previous population groups and tenant being the hot again.

That's a major question and then the question is what exact due date the eighth Exodus.

When that date. The conquest of Canaan, but many have raised questions that the numbers seem high, they are in keeping with the rest of Old Testament numbers. When you read the rest of the Old Testament that the nation of Israel being that size would be in keeping with that so my responses. This either. The numbers are as reported, and we just don't have all the ancient evidence would like to have for it. But the numbers are as reported or that throughout the Old Testament that there is a a way of writing numbers and signifying events and numbers of people troops dying and things people called Lauren is like that that was known in the ancient world, but that is not known to us today. It is noted scholars have looked at many many numbers in the Old Testament and summit.

Astrid says LF is dissecting a thousand resident is aloof. Is it it is it that the leader is just referring to a leader versus thousand event of the things don't breakdown up a colleague some years ago with a major Christian organization reached out to me with this very question.

And I six years here the answers are familiar with this endeavor.

He looked at those in the seminar because I went to massive detail. We get every different way to try to read this.

Okay this doesn't seem to make sense and I went to battle 50,000 were killed. Here the okay that's a lot of people killed in one battle, one location and but the numbers are consistent consistently high and then how are things written another ancient recent literature and should should the numbers be taken at face value, so it's a B? It if it is literal, so be it. There's nothing saying it couldn't be so big? As to the high numbers throughout the Old Testament, they are consistent doesn't mean there's something were missing or the numbers just behind us. It was so appreciate the question can't answer with any anything more definitive than that. Okay I'm just scrolling down to see how many questions there are theater okay Violet wants to know what your take on SBC 21, which I take to be Southern Baptist convention 21 Southern Baptists had a great rise in membership some years back and now the membership is been going down. Some say it's because the group has been to political to conservative. Others claim it's because it's compromising so I'm not a southern Baptists are not part of the SBC.

I'm not speaking as an insider, but what is my take on to say this the end like I could be take everything I'm saying here that with a grain of salt, but just to say I'm not an insider right.

I'm not an insider, so I can only say so much right so I think that positive steps have been taken to say hey were holding to what we hold to our fundamental views, but we realize their areas of weakness. We, for example, do I think the southern Baptists were right to reject CRT critical race theory. Absolute as a result of that, a number of prominent black leaders left their way to a found a joint voice that could have better said, we continue to stand for racial reconciliation. We continue to stand for justice.

We continue to recognize the Southern Baptist convention's roots in slavery to member Southern Baptist roaster break with northern Baptist because they were proslavery and northern Baptist were antislavery. So was a visceral way they could have included more black leaders in a positive way this okay when you hear CRT what are you here is when we hear this what we are hearing over there better ways to say we are rejecting XYZ.

Can you agree with us that that's wrong and can we be standing with you for greater sensitivity in areas of justice, etc. dealing with sexual abuse scandals is not not sweeping things under the rug to say no. We must deal with these things.

To me it seems to be at a positive election and with with Ed Lydon. I believe, and a step in a good direction for the future but others could come tell me how you did wrong you just understand what's going on there and this is just about compromise and try to be woke. The semi perception but but do not take me as a major authority on this because I have not looked at the players well enough to be able to sort this out in sufficient depth of if events of the us by SBC 21. Heck, sorry I answered your own question. Okay woozy to.

Why do so many evangelicals boast about the refusal to take the call vexing with pastors going to excuse them in Romans 13 replay tells Christians to be subject to governing authorities was not considered rebellion.

This bring judgment on themselves. All okay number one we are not required by law.

Get vexing this first. We are not required by law to be vaccinated so it's not about obeying authorities were not required by law to be vaccinated. Number two.

There are very serious questions that are still being raised as to the long-term effects of the vaccine that there may be negative health effects because of it, that there there may be problems for women having children. There may be problems with disorders coming up in the future. Different sicknesses disease because it was not the time to adequately vetted and Testament should be at least 1012 years. Normally it is not like a typical vaccine so there many medical doctors saying they were not sure about this. So where were hesitant about people getting a wash of children have to get things like that. So there are legitimate questions.

Third, the first government document in the second. There were legitimate health questions.

Third, if the government tells us to disobey our conscience. It is a government ordered someone to have an abortion. The government ordered someone to violate their own sacred convictions. In those cases, we have to say. So we have to obey God rather than man or be true to our own convictions, even if a wrong that we suffer the consequences. That's the third thing. If you genuinely believed that there were health risks associated with you taking this vexing. If you genuinely believe that. Would you be doing the right thing in God's sight to get your whole family vaccinated. I think not force those evangelicals who would seem to be boasting about this.

It could just be foolishness, it could just be carnality, it could just be snubbing their nose at the government.

It could be presumption early this does not protect me honey this which again is can be presumptuous or it could be evangelicals and look just messing with our lives. You tell us we can galaxy in the building to worship at the supermarket is packed with people. Planes are packed with people liquor stores are packed with people.

Abortion clinics are packed with people, but we can't get a building worship for a casino in Nevada seats 3000 people can be half filled. That's fine if we have a church building that seats 3000 More than 50 people in it, abortion clinics and and liquor stores provide essential services, but churches don't come on come on your soul. And of these, these kinds of arguments can be raised to say it's government overreach vaccine is government overreach is God-fearing people who love our liberties and preserve our liberties we we are not going to partake in this so if some of boast in the carnal foolish way that's that's unfortunate to have an seem sensitive to others who believe the vaccines are important field are not walking along the shore look for their neighbor by not being vaccinated, then just with humility, grace, explained reasons for those who succumb on this pushback is gone way, way too far, then this would be some of the reasoning behind not getting vexing and more and more data comes out.

It seems that if you find choice not get a little work it out to study it out on our number by Expo light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown of your voice and more cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown thanks for joining us today on the line of fire less segment to take questions about your great questions and posted on twitter Tuesday night Thursday morning Thursday afternoon I'm answering now on today's broadcast Andre asked this. Why did God allow 80% of Christians to believe in a pretrip rapture will accept the premise of the question number one throughout church history. No one ever heard of a pretrip rapture until around the 1830s tombs of the system. Dispensationalism as we know it today and pretrip rapture.

Nobody heard of it. So throughout church history to the 1800s. Nobody heard of it and around the world are plenty of Christians who haven't heard of it and who don't believe in it and right this moment. Despite the popularity of the belief of their multitudes, certainly more than 20% that don't hold to it, and whole denominations that rejected. So of course it's not 80%. That's one thing but as to why God allowed so many to believe things the word is the word and then there but all kinds of errors through church history. Early Christians were deceived by the Gnostics believed early Christians embrace false gospels and fell away from the faith there always been challenges look through much of churches if if your evangelical reply was just a Protestant. You say that much of church history with dominance of the Catholic Church. There was tremendous error if you're Catholic you have to say the least. Half the church worldwide is America's non-Catholic and if you're Protestant, and using Catholics and and and Greek original results in everything you have to say that I have of the church are over half is is is not right. So you're always can have these groups here around the world. The vast majority of believers today of of Protestant believers are charismatic Pentecostal. But in America you still got large numbers are not was approved. It proves that we gotta get the word. So Foley's word say was your words and your best to understand and accurately. Also, there were some positive things restored was pretrip teaching. Namely, that excitement about the return of Jesus in the sense of Jesus could return my lifetime is often lacking is people just put the return of Jesus off is good that came out of it, but in the midst of error. Thank you for the question.

Let's see Rob how you discern truth from a view to Christian video. Some find that many, many Christians will find himself in hell because reliving of this document. Having a personal tour of both heaven and hell. First, spend more time in the word and growing and fundamental knowledge of God, then watching lots of YouTube videos on lots of opinions that's us.

1 Great Way to avoid being deceived is to spend more time in the word and the more time majoring on the majors measuring the majors. One of the fundamental emphases of Scripture. What will study those focus on those grow on those and then be very careful with teachers. They claim to to be the accurate ones will damning everybody else somebody sent me a link to a popular YouTube channel and the guy was renting me as a heretic, etc. then I noticed he had branded just about every other leader out there is a heretic that I II mean well evangelical leaders was leaders respected throughout the body doesn't have a good company here.

I feel bad for the got now is he, therefore, not save Gaza Strip, not me, but the elitist know we are right nobody else wrong always beware always beware and then don't base anything doctrinally on somebody else's claims of personal revelation that God showed them having God show them how is it true examined by the word and if it reinforces was written on Scripture, Scripture, while Scripture really said it. If it's different.

Could be real. Maybe the person who had expressed disposal? That's all. But don't base your own life on that don't base doctrine on that. It's based on the word so if if you make on the majors. Looking like this. Let's see working out and you go through basic cardio things basic lifting things in and healthier, stronger, etc. then someone says have got these exotic exercises to try and I just learned at his post like help this one thing is unique when you start doing them.

Next thing you get all ill things pulled out a joint and soreness here and you can't walk. There was a state may government should stay with the things that are productive and help a thousand times more when it comes to the fundamentals of of the word stay more in the middle can be hard if you to get kicked off on the extremes of handsome Tom can you speak of how inspiration works. Where is the authors emotion opinion historical narrative and inspired Scripture begin. I fully believe in inspiration and inerrancy. I'm just curious how it works.

God bless, I believe, to the biblical author that they were not always conscious writing God's words. For example, someone might have been recording history mineral Luke did his study got to the sources as best as possible and felt he was doing something important. Putting this together now did he feel the same level of inspiration that a prophet might have that got caught up and saw God envisions that this is what the holy one of Israel, says I wouldn't think so but God superintendent Luke's words, that with you Roche regards words got superintended. Paul's letters he might've been really burdened as he wrote but he wasn't consciously writing Scripture and in the same way that Moses was writing down the book of the covenant. No annexes 24 to write these words, news writing God's words about God.

Superintendent is writing so when it comes to Scripture. Paul might've been moved on to write a letter and wrote it with apostolic authority regarding every word, but it was God who superintendent and intended that word it was his very words or or another example, when let's say Isaiah is put into the book of Isaiah to be final editors and thinks it was a Jeremiah Wright and and then you have final editors whatever blitzes say the reports that he himself was involved with arranging with a certain order. So there's one that there's a narrative account of a germ on the third person wants it and write that whoever wrote that Orth Jeremiah wrote in third person that be written in a different level of inspiration this writing historical facts and anecdotes versus when the Holy Spirit move them to speak and yet equally. We have God's words but one is thus saith the Lord speaking. Another is just giving us an accurate account of history Mr. Mullins made the claim. Look at if light comes through the window and that light is refracted it's it's no longer the same light so it may have started as God's word when comes the human being is not the same light than answers and less God so constricted the window that the light came through, it just the way he wanted.

So we ended up with those words so I don't know that the authors were equally conscious of what they were writing being inspired but God oversaw the work moving with supernatural inspiration.

One case in meticulous care in another case to produce what we have as God's word in writing Scripture exposing Christians while one think God would all hang on.

Let's just get rid of that block this person. Whoa. Okay, that was absolute trash that we got to that text okay as is read down further right so should have noticed by the exposing Christians the summerhouse all any other questions here inspiration Cove with SBC 21 on a manual you believe in a literal six day creation Genesis. The young earth I do in my opinion, a lot of Christians are afraid to take the stance because they're scared to defend against was the secular world, the most scientists say yeah manual I've addressed this many time on the year.

Thank you for your question.

I agree that there are Christians who say hey it literally speaks of the six-day creation. That's the most natural way of reading it, but science is against it online to be ridiculed, so there must be another way to read. I believe there's something to love either player plenty of others like astronomer Hugh Ross who came to faith as a scientific man.

You know it is what causes a think reading the Bible and sing wow what the Bible says is in harmony with science and he does not believe a little six-day creation. This is part of him coming to faith through scriptural narrative, especially outside of of Genesis 1. So there are others who sincerely believe in an old earth because that's what they believe the Bible teaches on my end as a nonscientist trained in the biblical text. I truly believe the text can be read either way, it can be is primarily there or not to teach us science but to teach us about God driven many parallels between the creation account Genesis 1 and in the building of the tabernacle and and some have argued of John Waltman and others have argued that this is God creating the universe, the earth, this is his tabernacle, etc. in the parallels are there. I would initially make that argument of challenging those times. But look into it more deeply these days, but for sure it's they are not primarily to teach us. Science is there to teach us about God. So I want to read that chapter to learn about the God of Israel. I will read the chapter to understand who he is, how he operates what he does. I want to see how he brings light out of darkness how he brings order out of chaos only causes everything to reproduce after its kind.

How great human beings in his image. That's what I want understand reading it if it does speak of literal 620 Friday so be it.

I am not a scientist, then science off to make sense of it and over as the years gone, science will learn more to confirm it. If it's not saying that fine may be most science is wrong in terms of the is right and since the age of universe, etc. I don't know but based on a nonscientific approach and simply looking at the text not need to hold to the six-day creation just based on Genesis 1. Either way is primarily in teach us about God. I would not get into science debates primarily cognitive right you have a blessed weekend back on Jesus. Another program powered by the Truth Network
