Can we have a difficult candidate open, honest discussion about racial tensions in America. It's time for the light a fire with your host biblical scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more savvy and spiritual clarity called 866-34-TRUTH to get all the light a fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown thanks for joining us. Action filled bonfire broadcast to start the week. Today is the recall 866-34-TRUTH 866-348-7884 this is Michael Brown enforceable cultural and spiritual revolution serving to help you in your walk in your calling and your destiny in God, to stand strong and be a world changers through the gospel are we. We have a lot to talk about now. I'm not going to talk about what happened the Academy Awards and will Smith slapping Chris rock not getting into that today.
Sorry you want to talk about the future. The fire of the places we can talk about that.
We will talk about present binds unfortunate remarks in Poland, where he outwardly said needs to go unscripted comment will will talk about that. I've just been reinstated to my twitter account after being locked out for 12 hours you you won't believe the 20 that got me locked out.
I just ran out literally one minute ago we just got alike.
That's how the timing worked out so I just found out did screenshots of everything so that later, but we have a most difficult line of fire candidate family conversations. If you're brand-new to the broadcast or recent listener.
Please understand that many folks have been with me listening on the radio, some daily for 13 years going on 14 years so you build a relationship over this period of time that it's it's a give-and-take I've learned a lot. Hopefully have a been able to share a lot as well. But I've learned a lot listening to callers and interacting getting different perspectives and it helps sharpen some of my own positions and deepen and clarify some of my own convictions is interact with others inside the body and on the outside and if you get if you knew by all means join in but understand that there is there's been a relationship built with many many rebar articles daily so my father ministry for 20 or 30 or more years so I'm speaking into this context okay last week I addressed some of the questioning of Judge Catania G Brown Jackson in the Supreme Court hearings and I want out of my way to say I would much much rather have nine black and/or Hispanic women on the serve on the Supreme Court who held to what I believe is a right judicial philosophy as intended by our Constitution as opposed to the nine leftist white males that wouldn't even have to think twice.
It wouldn't be a split second of a debate in terms of what I would prefer, so I made that clear that I said to me it's an ideology. As you can.
I as a white male raises an ideological issue about statement made by bike by Justice Jackson without me being accused of of racism so I don't always get to look at comments on YouTube and other places were our show goes out. Sometimes I do and I noticed that some going in and say hello, black American.
She should not serve it's that simple and in other St. Dr. Brown will know you are racist you have to be so careful why appeal to the left wife, why try to appeal to the woke left.
Oh, I'm not not think about the woke left at all.
I think about brothers and sisters in the Lord who do believe that this judge was disrespected and hearing soon to see it is because she was a black woman. She did get the same respect from the Republicans that a white male would have. That's how they genuinely see it and perceive it and I want to be sensitive to that and address my fusillades crazy. We all have our perspectives and we all have our blind spots and in less we acknowledge that will never go further. Look you have on both sides of the race debate in America extremes that really don't care about winning others over that are in the middle they they want to preach to their choir. They want to preach in an echo chamber, so I know you're a white conservative commentators, and they could care less about accusations of racism or this in a single cell.
Tell the truth. And and maybe they are bringing valid issues to the surface and in raising major critiques that are serious, however, the way they're doing it will just sound too many others insensitive missing the point and big and I'm just saying that so sound off ivory comments.
I was just looking online and saw comments from a black theologian and what he said sounded outright racist to me. The way he was, what evangelicals set outright racist to me.
Judgmental at and it doesn't seem like he's trying to win someone in the middle so we could be like ships passing in the night we could easily do it is not hard to do that. We have a conversation we say what what your perspective, let me hear your perspective we think about your perspective that let me share mine.
So back in the days when the big big story was George Zimmerman's killing of trave on Martin and was it was a homicide was the justifiable self-defense and we had endless conversations on the air about this and we pledged and deep. It really early on on the radio when I was trying to weigh how much I want to talk about politics.
This was just different than preaching from the pulpit how much I should be getting into those things. I made a comment one day about then Sen. Barack Obama, who is running against Hillary Clinton in the primaries for the Democratic nomination and I made a statement about them and a few days later I got a call, or from a black listener to Savoy of talk about race all the time I sit with Mrs. Rose bashing Obama said. Actually, I adjusted some about him.
I mentioned somebody like about John McCain the week before and that I mentioned a bunch of black conservatives that I like the likely vote for president, but in her mind. I was I was raising race. All the times it was usual, but okay, that's easy to say was wrong is right I will know why that was her perception was what made her feel like that one friend said to me, African-American listen when you speak against Obama.
We feel like you're speaking against her son that white Americans and Americans in general tend to have a much more independent, a mindset, meaning that we are just islands to ourselves as we are families and communities but were very very independent. Many black Americans have have what would be more like an Old Testament feel of being more a community or tribal affiliation as were many Christians in Africa can relate to the Old Testament but of the many Christians can in the West. So for example, many black Americans went when when this is the video of George Ford being killed said that it feels like is my son so I understand that these hearings can't can be another major forward step to say. While this would be an incredible honor to have a black female on the Supreme Court. It's never been done, there would be wonderful. I said it would be wonderful and be reflective of our nation of but let's just make sure the ideologies right was just me through the judicial philosophy is right so I'm looking at it in a completely independent separately other silicate more the community communal in the South that one way is right and the other way is wrong. It's just different ways of seeing things so is interacting with a friend upon a colleague who's a black educator and he felt that the judge action was deeply disrespected by the Republicans in completely mistreated and I said I don't think she was treated any differently or worse than the way the Democrats treated for such an Cavanaugh and Barrett and there is lot of their treatment. I found despicable effect the supply expected that each side is really going to come hard after the other side that the judges of those that trump nominated now.
The one abide nominated there to do their best to avoid saying how the really a rule on things will be contentious vote in the by party lines. The personal get in us, what I expect to happen for better or for worse. So my question to you is do you feel from your perspective that Judge Jackson was disrespected or mistreated and was because of the color of her skin orders that notion strike you is is utterly bizarre. I'm not trying to set up a conflict. I am trying to bring things to the surface because after months of prayerful reflection during the trave on Martin George Zimmerman trial and in the before, in the aftermath I came up with a very very simple pasta that whites often do not see racism when it is there and Blacks often see racism when it is not there that based on her upbringing.
Based on our experience, they still will we been racially profiled or not based on whether we've had a history of being discriminated minorities are not that whites often don't see racism when it really is there. They will recognize and conversely Blacks often do not see racism exclusively. Blacks often see racism when it's not there is a Jew I could say the same thing that non-Jews often don't see anti-Semitism when it is there and Jews often see anti-Semitism was not there. It's perfectly understandable, but it is in a less you tell me that all of the Jesus loving whites vote a certain way and or the great majority of Jesus loving whites vote one way and the great majority of Jesus loving Blacks voted different way. And it's because one is right with God and the other is not right with God. One serving God was not servility as Russell like that to me which strikes me as utterly racist and we have to find out why what we have these different perspectives when we have these different positions, and what I want to know is what my blind spots so I double check those just like you driving if you have a blind spot to double check that before we move forward. So I have no desire whatsoever to show the left or the will crowd look at how enlightened look at all racially sensitive but now it's the last summer my mind at the same time, I will be able to speak to issues with my brothers and sisters in the Lord different races and ethnicities and backgrounds want to be able to speak with them candidly have difficult conversations and learn from one another and sharpen one another so that we can serve God together.
That's my goal. It's a lot easier dispatch from one side and then the more people yell using data disproves are right I am what I would do is is the Jesus thing just coming to a difficult situation as well as assistance in the Lord and have an honest conversation with a few clips from the hearings we come back a ton of stuff to get into today. You that will take your call to believe that Judge Jackson was mistreated, disrespected his skin color or gender 866337884 the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown looking for the line of fire. I'm just posting on my personal Facebook page will do it on the after rampage after the show, just posting a copy of the tweet that got me blocked on Twitter. Yeah right.
866-34-TRUTH I am not here to stir up controversy.
I'm here to help us address controversy is brothers and sisters in Jesus with mutual respect and say okay understand you love the Lord understand can be biblically based and you see things this way understand you love the Lord to see can be biblically based few things she things a different way let's talk about the end of the phones shortly.
First, this is what Cory Booker said Sen. Cory Booker to Judge Jackson in the midst of the hearings of the this is been not a surprise given the history that we all know not a surprise, but perhaps a little bit of a disappointment. Some of the things that been said in this hearing, the way you have dealt with some of these things. That's why you are judge and I am a politician because you have set with grit and grace have shown us is extraordinary demeanor but you are right a mainstream judge your sentencing. I look at the data falls in the mainstream on everything from child sexual assault to all the other issues of people trying to bring up and and so I sit here said nobody. Still, my journal was convicted angry, especially about people that are called a conservative magazine demagogic for what they're bringing up the just doesn't hold water ought not to let my joy be stolen when that final vote happens and you ascend on the highest court in the land I'm gonna rejoice in him, to tell you right now the greatest country in the world, the United States of America will be better because of you. So my question is if she was a mainstream judge. Why would she be nominated by a leftists administration and by Joe Biden. It was, we knew that trump's appointees had a certain judicial philosophy and it would be leaning to the right for the speaking and we know that those that Pres. Biden would nominate be leaning to the left of its it's a given. We know it and we know then how votes go for the most part afterwards. What I find troubling their is the way Sen. Booker treated some of the trump nominees analysis to support.
It goes both what that's thing to me it's it's going both ways throughout is had nothing to do with skin color and it's got nothing to do with gender. But this might that's my perception has everything to do with ideology.
And that's where you're getting the attacks on each side. That's my perception eager to interact with those that may have a different perception right. Let's let's us in the Lindsay Graham and some of his interactions was obvious the more feisty in your nomination. Did you notice that people from the left were pretty much cheering you on. A lot of people are sharing the on-site center strip signed the methodology that I use in my cases in order to ensure that I am ruling impartially and then your judicial philosophy is to rule impartially without my judicial philosophy is to rule impartially and to rule consistent with the limitations on my authority as a judge and so my methodology actually helps me to do that in every case, though, you wouldn't say that you're an activist judge.
I would not say that. And so will ever 20 minutes.
More later on.
But here's what I would say that every group that wants to pack the court that believes this court is about your right wing nuts are going to destroy America that consider the Constitution trash all wanted you picked and this is all I can say is the fact that so many of these left-wing radical groups that would destroy the laws.
We know it declared war on Michelle Giles and supported you is problematic for me. Thank now he's referencing someone in the past was a black female and those are left opposed her to me. The issues are ideology. That's when it comes down to, and in my view, there was disrespect towards trumps nominees in this disrespect was bides nominees and is further questioning for them as well as to this device with politically to meet simulated trace of us have a different perspective, but if we don't talk about it that will pass like ships in the night let's go to the phones will start Raleigh, North Carolina Clay, welcome to the line of fire or long-term or talk to brother Michael Dr. Brother Michael logged hundred been able to call him ensure anything would be would be able talk to you all invert direct touch on first of all let me give you our heartfelt thanks for being part of the Truth Network is interesting that you bring certain things out and got grounded God's people to dodge a I would say that I get Dr. Baird 100 certain things, but if I'm not mistaken correctly.
If I'm wrong I think was about baby three years ago will not come that you brought this wonderful godly black preacher in Winston-Salem area and if I'm not mistaken he broke it down.
He opened his Bible and he talked about what you would shared a little bit ago about the racism thing on the right thing more effective cultural diversity back at what he shared really have got my picture because not been able to share this with so many people throughout, and I will brag on you because I'm thankful that you do what you do in Lord, thank you brother Dr. Markel of what he does. Entrepreneurial but anyway I remember when he crept up his Bible and he worked in Scripture, and he brought L the exact fact that there is no such word as racialism of the bottle.
You remember that all okay II think you're speaking about their couple conversations like this that the issue that that he was raising it and thanks thanks for the kind words are appreciated that the issue that he was raising was that in the Bible you have division over nationality. We have division over G Gentile, as opposed to division over skin color and that that is something that is a more recent invention. In fact, but my colleague on the screen.
John's Merrick, a Catholic conservative wrote an article recently and in the midst of it.
He is is white in the midst of it. He talked about where American slave trade went beyond slave trade in the past, and that in America, it became an issue of race it. In other words, when the children of Israel were enslaved in Egypt that it would look pretty similar to the Egyptians by large so they were enslaved as a foreign people worshiping a different God but not because of skin color and when the Romans enslaved different groups. It was that they they conquered them it was because of skin color and black seven slave whites and whites of enslaved Blacks and Blacks of enslaved Blacks and whites of enslaved whites and other races of enslaved other races within America is a theology was developed that Blacks are of an inferior race, and therefore they they were destined to serve, or they were cursed and therefore to serve, or they were morally or intellectually inferior, and therefore they should serve and that's what gave it some of its unique evil, but the concept of racism. This does not specifically exist in the Bible. So a Clay what what was it that you found helpful about that observation. How he brought it out and how he introduced it because of it out to know I numbing like what he the pastor had to say because I'm actually believing that for the rest of the show that you know there were too many people call in and talk about this because you know it youth 88 and you know what I come from three families that had nothing to do with no the racism thing on the right thing.
There was a lady, her name was Mayfield who took care of my sister and when we were younger and she was not a Clay old she was not in anything and I know that some people probably went into something like that because of what was going on with them in their lifestyle but you know they were complicated for what they did their homework.
I think confusion and not much comprehension of what what what went on. Years and years and years ago yet. Let me just jumping to some of the break coming up limply say this. We see this perception is not always reality. Many times we perceive is not accurate we misjudge things we misunderstand things perception is not always reality, but perception must be addressed if we are to help people coming to reality.
If I have a massive blind spot because of my upbringing or history that does not enable me to see something else would have empathy for someone else.
That's what I perceive.
I don't see a problem. I see no issue. However, there is an issue there is a problem so you have to deal with my false perception to get me into reality the same way if I'm convinced there is an issue or problem were actually there isn't one company see that that perception must be dealt with. So so Francie Chris my PO. Thanks for the call, click when it comes to issues that become racially divisive, especially in our churches don't talk past each other. Don't demonize each other. Don't sit back and judge each other superficially.
Instead, talk to each other. Following these guidelines, ask the other person. The other brother sister the other coworker that a family member. Please share your thoughts on this. I want to hear your take this as carefully as you can take it in and then ask if you can share your take this way friends we can roll in the Lord grow in our understanding and growing our unity before the five is a fair like that line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866342 here again is Dr. Michael Brown, so will you plan for what April 14 was scrambling to get tax of no, no, not ashamed of Jesus day national not ashamed of Jesus to have you not heard good and not ashamed of Jesus.org not ashamed of Jesus.org there is a special section for pastors and leaders stuff you can download general information for everyone.
This is a day we say to a world to a culture that is trying to silence us then strata shut our mouths that is trying to marginalize us this try to cancel us. This is our time to say were here, not ashamed. We love Jesus we love you. It's a day to bring your Bible to work or school today to wear a shirt or an outfit identifying he was a follower of Jesus. It's a data post something on social media.
It's it it's a day to look for an opportunity to share the love of God with someone and as we rise up together will be amazed at how many there allowing our class in the workplace and are they provided know about that and will be amazed how many doors open for us to share the gospel will be amazed that some people don't like us but that's fine. We follow in the footsteps of our master and Savior Jesus 866-34-TRUTH, one of player clip from Sen. Ted Cruz interacting with Judge Catania. The Brown Jackson in the Supreme Court hearings last week and then after that on the move on but I want to play this and give you couple different perspectives on it right so this is some of senators asking questions Sen. Cruz asking George Jackson. These questions, let's listen. If you look at the Georgetown Day school's curriculum is filled and overflowing with critical race theory that that among the.the books that are either assigned or recommended. They include critical race theory an introduction. They include the end of policing and at on advocacy for abolishing police. They include how to be an antiracist by EP bring Candy.
They include literally stacks and stacks of books and not tight to the ones that were most stunning that include a book called antiracist baby by it.
Abram Candy and their portions of this book that that that I find really quite remarkable. One portion of the book says babies are taught to be racist or antiracist. There is no neutrality.
Another portion of the book they recommend the babies confess one being racist. I do not believe that any child should be made to feel as though they are racist or though they are not valued or though they are less than at their victims that they are oppressors. I don't believe in any of that. But what I will say is that when you asked me whether or not this was taught in schools. Critical race theory. My understanding is that critical race theory as an academic theory is taught in law schools and to the extent that you were asking the question I understood you to be addressing public schools Georgetown Day school just like the religious school that Justice Barrett was on the board out is a private school in my work as a judge, which is evidenced from my near decade on the bench diameter than the let's go back to to your work as a judge.
As was noted in the first slide you discussed sentencing as being related to critical race theory and earlier. There's been some back and forth as Democratic senators have tried to address your sentencing patterns is a concern child pornography. Confess your Jackson is as look as I listen to your testimony. I believe you are someone who is compassionate.
I believe you care for children. Obviously, your children and other children. But I also see a record of activism and advocacy right now this is just excerpts of of the interaction. Here's why plated one of my friends very solid strong believer, well educated, deep thinker, black American believer saw this and and thought what Cruz did was horrible and ridiculous and idiotic with your tea and showing children stuff I watch at times respectful at as as I watch that the clips afterwards. The north life that he was respectful and that those were perfectly free question stories and when she said on the school board. We discussed curriculum likely will be given school board to consider the larger financial issues or or or school growth or things like that are in a liquid perfectly fair when she said CRT is taught in grad schools of our law schools. Yes, that actual philosophy or that way of thinking and evaluating history and society that would be taught as an academic subject. No one that I know that supposing this is saying it's being taught to kindergartners or even sixth-graders with her saying is that there is a curricular which is filtered through the lens CRT once more like ships passing in the night so all all I'm hoping for is for us as followers of Jesus, not expecting the world to do this, but us as followers of Jesus to be able to take each hear each other out.
Think through what other sides other parts of the body are saying and then come to our own clear convictions. Maybe the more you interact with someone, the deeper your conviction gets the more you talked on site while you are blind boy, am I right in ways he thinks or you may say wow I never saw from that angle that is so so helpful and perspectives change based on it or convictions deep and so can we do this.
Can we do with what we'll see what happens of the comment section on Facebook and YouTube and other places were people in can we sharpen one another in the Lord rather than grind each other down. Is that possible can we sharpen one another in the Lord, rather than stabbing each other or grind each other down. That's what I'm here to do now. Along the way.
I will I get style will get stabbed. Oh trust me, the knives come out. Bottom line, that's what happens on the front lines.
That is fun. If I can take some stabbing, spiritually, metaphorically speaking, that will help others listen and interact in dialogue with respect amen worth it.
Not a problem. Okay, so the state of Utah switching subjects the state of Utah, Pastor Bill saying that biological boys cannot compete against biological girls in sports, the governor vetoed it. The legislature overruled the governor so it's now law in Utah.
Thank God's goodwill to write lots, righteous lots of furlough so the Utah Jazz basketball team there management put out a statement opposing the law so I tweeted this guys but we can pull up this graphic here.
I tweeted this last night and honest question for the Utah Jazz management that you come out with a statement opposing your states.
Passage of a bill outlawing biological males from competing with girls for member of your team identified as female.
Could he play in the WNBA so someone said that's a good fair question. Jazz would say in response and then a gentleman named Ben Anderson who is a journalist who covers Utah Jazz and as a radio shows, well, which I learned by clicking on this link. He said what you think this is some gotcha moment. These are really athletes competing at the highest level of one decided to walk away from that because they want to go with their more accurately represented to the true self. Why would you be mad at that and then another tweet.
Can you imagine how much courage it would take to walk away from millions of dollars in frame for the relatively minuscule salaries and anonymity of the WNBA because you're being true to yourself. Were you talking about and I I said thanks for your response. But the question is about fairness to female athletes, which is why things like Martina never tried never to loaf up when unhappy with quote Leah Thomas and CA victories. So would it be fair to women WNBA for a male NBA player to compete against them. So my only issue was fairness to female players and obviously any player, the worst male player in the NBA is one of the top basketball players in the world is an elite basketball athlete to be playing in the NBA that player. The worst male would be the number one store in the history of women's basketball because that person is a biological male and set all his life to develop as a biological males humidity did things with various hormone treatments to lessen some of his masculinity. The fact is, he's lived his whole life. Develop bone structure all kinds of things.
Muscle athleticism. These are things that have been developed that are not going to be removed itself evident that Swype will/Leah Thomas went from being ranked 462 among male swimmers to to win the 500 yard freestyle in the NCAA national competition and winning handily from 462 down this race number one because all Thomas is still a male.
So I went back and forth with Ben Anderson one point he is why you insulting people by calling them, he went sexy. She in some a condescending essence that your lecture me about Tom when you're being insulting to me but we went back and forth. I said biology is not bigotry. I said what's your view. He posted if you say hey that's up to the person the WNBA is is fully qualified to make that decision. It's up to the person to determine their true identity and I strongly different and that was it. So today, late morning I go to get on Twitter and I find a band blocked at my account has been deleted but are unblocked doesn't tell me why. So finally, about one minute before radios in the start, it reveals the reason why so your account has been locked what happened. We determined that this count violated the Twitter rules so this is the tweet that what I did is I deleted it because I don't really care about having uprightness of the deal I deleted itself. My complicated but is a screenshot of it said by the way, this is why this is why my account was locked but we'll see what happens out of course or write an article about it and post that on Twitter. This is what I wrote you got a lock on Twitter. Are you ready thanks for your response. This is to to this gentleman that I was interacting with. Thanks for your response. But the question is about fairness to female athletes, which is why athletes like Martina never fell over when unhappy with quote Leah Thomas's and CA victories would be fair to women in the WNBA for a male NBA player to compete against that.
I read it before. That's the one I got locked out for. That's how crazy is a my guess is that some I complain about maybe the fellows interacting with maybe some others complained about it, but for that there's a reason even shouting is a reason even raising our voices from rooftops. There is a reason I've written the book the silencing of the lambs, Israel Perez is a reason there's a whole chapter in the book about big tax effect if the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown is word his beginning at about the something of the lambs that people are picking up a copy of the book and tell you it's it's an eye-opener mentioned this before, but because I'm always working on new books work on new projects writing five new articles week of the time a book comes out it is… A rush thing where it's an critical thing we have to get out right now and publishers work with and I ready quickly get out quickly, normally by the time I finish the manuscript is submitted to the publishers with clean. It's is edited as sharply as I can edit it all. The annotation is there all the endnotes who they are so submitted to the publisher, then it's only 9 to 12 months before the book will come out there.
Is there anything proofing process, there is the cover design.
There are other things to be thought through and then has to get its lot with bookstores and things when they're expecting new books from publishers, etc. baton. The books come out.
I probably written to new books and hundreds of articles and done countless radio shows, preaching, ministering so the book itself is not always foremost in my mind at that moment what I'll do is I'll review the contents.
I'm a speed reader rabbit doing it in more recent years, as I get the audiobook, actually by the audiobook bound book and listen to it and now I'm hearing the freshness is reading it and being refreshed again when it comes to the silencing of the lambs. The content has been with me pretty much always through this last year through the editing proofing polishing preparation process because it's so massively relevant and I was able update things as we got closer recent book. It is so massively relevant. This is the world we live in.
Every single day. So of course it's on my mind, but hearing it on the audiobook on drove charter fresh is because there's so many examples there are so many anecdotes there are so many stories that as I'm hearing it a fresh one after the other. I'm getting impacted the way you'd be impacted.
As a reader and you will be challenged. I just want you to know when you get the silencing of the lambs you will be challenged pastors and leaders. You will be challenged moms that young people will be challenged people in the business world. People work in the media, you will be challenged.
What's the challenge. Jesus said if you save your life, you lose it. If you lose your life for my sake and the gospel.
You'll find what that means, practically speaking, is if I compromise my convictions for the sake of my colleagues if I soften my message so as not to rock the boat. If III modify the things that are most important to me because I want to stay popular. I want to make more money.
I want to grow my social media network. I have sold my soul on a certain level in the process and the ultimate selling of our soul is when were told to deny Jesus and walk away from our faith.
We do it to save our lives, and thereby lose our lives. You are now a slave to others.
You no longer have personal dignity and integrity. Instead, you are now a puppet of the polls or a puppet of finances are a puppet of human opinion, a puppet of social media praise. Whatever it is when you lose your life when you say I live to do the will of God. I'm not a troublemaker, peacemaker, and that some arrogant angry subtype person I'm humble and will serve and honor. But I have to be true to my convictions and it being true to my convictions means I lose this promotion if being true to my convictions means I'm I'm ousted from a certain position of being true to my convictions mean and up in jail being true to my convictions means I die, so be it. We live to do the will of God for me to live is Christ to die scan is not that what Paul said and did he say in the verse immediately before that writing from a jail in Philippi, for I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be a shame, but will have sufficient courage so that now is always Messiah will be magnified in my body, Christ will be magnified in my body for me to live is Christ and to die is gain is that the context of his words did Jesus say in John 1224 25 of us a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone with the dies, it bears much fruit. Therefore, we must renounce our lives meaning our right to self-determination die to that and say Lord of year to do your will and friends of of done that.
The better part of these last 50 years, not perfectly, but that's been the heart and boy it's so free. It is so wonderfully freeing because now you are in your primary focus is what pleases the Lord. I was doing an interview with by my good friend Dr. Frank Turek, who we are to have him here soon to talk about an amazing book that he and his son, but I think maybe early May is when the show will will air what will be doing that interview soon, but I was on his show this past Saturday talk about the silence of the lambs and I have to get the exact quote decide not heard it before but it was it was so right on Thomas Sowell said and I this may be a paraphrase when you tell people the truth. You care about them when you're trying to help them when you tell people what they want to hear you care about yourself and try to help yourself and when you think of it like that.
Okay, speaking the truth in love is going to help that person. Tell them what they want here is gonna hurt them, tell them what they want to hear is to temporarily help me, but ultimately hurt them. Changes or thought process so grab a bunch of copies of Grable of the silencing of the lambs review. Get your books, your local bookstore online Christian book Barnes & Noble Amazon on the website asked Dr. Brown.org grab some copies distribute them widely. The last chapter gets into more depth about national not ashamed of Jesus day on April 14. Again, Esther 414. The key verse there, which is a real save your life lose it lose your life find it kind of verse Esther 414. Okay, one last thing, let's listen to Pres. Biden's comments over the weekend in Poland wanted to sound strong pushback against Vladimir Putin and made one unscripted comment that they've now the White House and Pres. but had to walk back from but created quite a bit of controversy and they'll tell you I'm playing let's let's listen to your building an empire will never race of people's love for liberty. Brutality will never grind down the road free Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia for free people refused to live in a world of hopelessness and darkness will have a different future brighter future routing democracy inferential hope in light of decency, dignity and freedom of possibilities. God sent this man cannot remain well so that's the line for God's sake. This man cannot remain in power. Not I'm sure America has been engaged in clandestine operations before and removed different government leaders, and I'm sure other nations have been involved with that as well. That doesn't surprise me surprises me in surprise. Everyone was to publicly say he must be removed.
He can stay in office. You say will Dr. Brown, you always say that you're not here to attack the president you're not here to attack Pres. Biden, etc. that's true so I'm I playing, simply this, many were concerned about Donald Trump as president that his speech would be reckless and that his recklessness would lead to potentially world war, and there is some validity to that concern.
I live a concern about Pres. Biden a different kind of recklessness and his mental acuity.
At this stage in life and I I don't get I don't get it with 330 million Americans and with thousands of political candidates and scores of high-level political candidates that our only choice. In the end was between two men who had enough baggage that we would question weight whether they could be the best for America's having voted for Donald Trump twice. I am hoping he will not run again in 2024 and certainly I can't imagine Pres. Biden in what seems to be an ongoing declining state possibly thinking of running in 2024 and we don't know any of us we can post about any of her allies. Little of these two older men about who will be here in 2024. At the same time we have even more grave concerns about the leadership qualities of a vice president, Harris.
Which is why she got there early in the primary, said so little support so it is a very difficult situation, but to me it's simple pray for God's best for Pres. Biden at the obviously is an mental decline.
He obviously at an edit as many are at that age, some are not. Some Agosto in the 90s summer fading in their 60s, but I'm I'm praying God, your best for Pres., but I'm not praying for his demise in the precursors on him. He is our present.
I did vote from the source system works is our present even if you think election was stolen. The courts never returned to the Senate. The Senate ratified it. So he's he's my president. Therefore, I pray God your best for Pres. by helping them to do what is right and good. Help them to do what is right and good for America and the nations. God guide his decision-making process and bring people around him that can help him do the right thing and Lord protect us as a nation and protect the world from things that could be the result of reckless speech that's my prayer.
God don't hurt him, help him to be the best president. He could be the good of America and the nations because sparks fly friends they can be a lot allies lost. That's my prayer that against him for him talk you tomorrow another program powered by the Truth Network
