The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network and friends or give a great strategy today how we can speak sore voices are not silenced for the light a fire with your host biblical scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more rationality and spiritual clarity called 866-34-TRUTH to get him a lot of wire and now is your host Dr. Michael Brown today on the line of fire.
Here's the recall 866-34-TRUTH 866-34-TRUTH 87884 got a lot of ground to cover today. Yesterday the anniversary, 21st anniversary of the 911 tragedy. Also, a few days back the passing of Queen Elizabeth, which is even talk about on the radio for a couple of reasons and lot of stuff to talk about to encourage your friend that you are not alone that you have not lost her mind that you're not the only one who thinks the way you think so we'll talk about that I want to encourage each of you that has a bird that has a concern that it is something that is a weight not to not be afraid to speak up even when you seem to be alone now and over the phone lines to anything you want to talk to me about any subject of any kind. The ties in in any way with the line of fire broadcast. You can call with your question with your comment with your criticism all yeah 8663 foray 7884 before I get into the heart of what I want to talk to you about today. Let me step back first mention Queen Elizabeth's passing up the Friday broadcast of last week was prerecorded. I had to be traveling out earlier than normal was prerecorded, I answered a bunch of questions that were submitted on Facebook great questions that we got to dress on the air Thursday was when the news got out Queen Elizabeth's passing but I didn't even know about it.
I have been busy teaching all morning and then went from there to do radio then after the show saw the headlights that the thing that's so interesting for me as an American is it's very hard for me to relate to the whole royalty thing.
Now I understand that through human history, kings, queens, royalty monarchs that's been the norm were used to in America. We grew up with. This is not the norm historically and in many parts the world but still not the norm. I remember talking to some British Christians a few years ago. Mom was saying how blessed they are to have a queen that was such an odd concept to me. Can you relate to that is just so different but for those who grow up in it. There's a significance, especially when it's it's Britain's longest reigning monarch 70 years that she represented something great to the nation and her popularity transcended the generations so as I was thinking about it. I didn't really know what to say except deep condolences for friends, United Kingdom and others that that look to Elizabeth as Queen Anne in May her legacy.
Be blessed so I have anything profound to say anything deep to offer, but for those who won Rodman say anything a person realize it happened until the show was over. The next show was prerecorded and this is the first one live since. But beyond that I written an article or just don't know what what do I have to say that is going to add to her memory or contribute to the future so my condolences to those who are morning.
Her loss and you think of a life well lived.
Seems like a life that was well lived. Okay so it doesn't take much to trigger the pain of the memories of 9/11 because it it strikes close to our household.
This is brother Douglas was one of the people killed that day and every death that they was tragic. Every death that day was was grievous and that those people just gone about a days work there in DC, New York City or DC never come home. Now I know that happens every day gets a car wreck.
Some of does a heart attack than I expected to happen, but here's this massive tragedy in the madness and insanity of what was behind it and what was driving it up it in in Nancy's case, her brother, Douglas. It strikes home. On another level because he'd worked in your it in the twin towers years earlier, but he wasn't regularly working there. He just happened to be there that day for a tradeshow symbol Y that they walk in the been another day left behind his wife and two kids. So Nancy showed me a picture that the daughter had posted of him with with with her and her brother when they were little.
She just see that it's just so heart wrenching in many of course the families never recovered, never healed many of the firefighters involved lost colleagues committed suicide families. This was a terrible blow, but reminds us of the. The dark degree of evil. It reminds us of how destructive Satan is the reminds us of the ugliness and sinfulness of human beings outside of God's grace and that the only real hope we have the only real, solid hope no real rock is the Lord because everything else is here today gone tomorrow empires nations everything here today and gone tomorrow. There are no big people in God's sight. There is a big God. And there there are masses millions, billions of little people, all of them loved by God, all of whom Jesus died for, and all can find refuge and hope in life in them.
So to anyone that's that's listening now and you're hurting percentagewise I know with with the audience.
We have by God's grace. Radio social media the race platforms podcast I know percentagewise again to be a number of you hurting grieving some hopeless some suicidal some of the end you wrote turn to the Lord with with everything as if there was no other hope there is no other way to restore the refuge turned to him with everything so that your hope is found in him alone, he will not fail you. He will not let you down. How many times have we seen at and you know the saying man's extremity is God's opportunity. How many of you came to faith in Jesus in the first place because of difficulties you went through. I was talking to someone who'd been away from the Lord and and finally came back to the Lord and I asked him what was the key in your coming back to Lisa candidly, loneliness and poverty he got to the end of himself say all it proves it.
Religion is just a crutch or whole God thing is just across the crotch. Kaylee know this is life support this. If this is everything because you may skip your way through life.
You may make a lot of money, you may be popular. Life may go well for you. But it's here today gone tomorrow and then eternity and to stand before God and give account.
All of us will would you say on that day and you look at your life and think I wasted a wasted all these years, despite having a good time to friends.
This is reality.
What happens is often we get to the end of ourselves.
Often we face a crisis reality strikes us.
That's when we understand all I need God.
I need help. We all need God.
We all need help. We all need mercy. I tweeted yesterday I said every so often, it strikes me fresh.
How God doesn't treat us as our sins deserve as believers, not just as unbelievers God forgave us and cleansed us in and put our sins on Jesus shoulders will be asked for mercy brought us into his kingdom and family and that's glorious and wonderful and were so grateful, amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me I once was lost but now found was my but now I see. But even as believers, God has extraordinary mercy on us. God has continued grace on us so look to him all right.

For some background is in background 866-34-TRUTH goes one way in or ask me any question on the subject that relates all to the broadcast.
So often over the years people will say to me while you you right what I'm feeling you're articulating what's in my heart that's why for years we been introduced as your voice your voice for moral, cultural, spiritual revolution or voice of moral sanity and spiritual clarity by God's grace we got these great platforms to reach millions of people every week. Radio and social media in writing, video and TV so we can get a message out that your burning with so we take this as it is a sacred privilege, as I've been on secular TV. I know it's not just about honoring the Lord and representing him but but representing each of you as we stand together in our convictions so I will always preaching this past Saturday in Pensacola, Florida. The large conference like the fire again conference at the Pensacola convention center and after the message which was entitled we need God just talking with a colleague here at Esther to Brown and he mentioned to be a quote from Doug Wilson who said we can't vote our way out of something we send our way into and that was pretty much what my message was about the only hope for the nation is revival in the church and awakening in society that we fall into four morally, culturally, spiritually, to have any way to get back without divine intervention, and that we look to politics to do it. Only the gospel can do, we will be disappointed, and I began to lay out ways that we had been politically seduced while calling us to be politically involved in this young lady, listening to the message 13 years old and her mom and dad missionaries in Italy for many years that Italian mom American students are ministry school and she texted to her mom while listening to the message. I thought there a mob direction. Different parts of the building. She said she's saying what role thinking and their whole family feeling the same way thinking the same way. He's saying what were all thinking and when I saw those words they deeply blessed me, not just coming from a 13-year-old, but that the fact that II know I know that I know that I know that many of the concerns I have raised you have felt awesome. Many of the birds I have expressed. You have carried also many of the concerns that the words that the things that we were addressing something is wrong you been feeling that but haven't had the platform to get the message out and when I speak were all speaking together asked to then Peter stood with the 11 even though Peter spoke as my friend Jesu Potter from India says when he spoke they all spoke because he was speaking for them not to want to share some ways that we cannot be silenced together little bit further into the broadcast.
But to to paint a picture of where we stood in America today. I used some illustrations.
I first put up a picture and those watching will put this up, you now that it was Richard know now is Rachel Levine together with Sam Britton so Richard Levine and Health and Human Services in the by the administration. Sam Britton in nuclear waste disposal. These are high-level people in the in the by the administration and they are an official business with the French ambassador. So, representing America and there is a picture of Richard Levine's "dead naming Richard like it banned from twitter for doing this. So there he is in his in his dress, military outfit is an Adm. next to him.
Sam Britton also in address.
His head shaved, made up female makeup. He does drag queen kind of stuff. Gender fluid. The these are representatives of the American government. May the Lord save them, bring them to wholeness. Bring them at repentance. But then this is the madness of the day in which we live that I put up a picture looks like someone states that photoshopped it but it's it's real.
There is a and a drag queen a satanic looking Drake went about with horns reading to toddlers drag queen reading our endorsed enthusiastically by the American Library Association.
I mean absolutely demented. May the Lord save and deliver that man is wild and bring him into wholeness in the Lord visit of these things get packed out. Parents can't wait to bring their kids to these things, the sum of the perversion of today's society.
Then I played this clip from the beginning of the movie that I had the privilege of hosting for the American family Association American family Studios in his image just to give a picture of where things are at in America.
With this new parents that I have Jean Jean me DTTTIQI have the dragging/issues are unavoidable on the news. I did not have a chance to comment on how good the White House look their inner legislation bathroom down in our schools queen story entertainment are socially or even reaching into our churches, causing families to question their thing.
They thought being asked to choose my child served as my child in their pushing everyone calls themselves a follower of Christ to wrestle with the question, what does God think you can watch that entire documentary for free and in his image.movie in his image, that would be great stories, incredible stories of God's mercy and grace and restoration answers to prayer in his image.movie or just want YouTube watch that in his image. Okay, stirring stuff, eye-opening stuff painful stuff that I played this clip from a preschool teacher who identifies us and being non-binary. This is preschool this is four-year-olds.
Check it out.
This is been my first year increase goal of the class of my own teaching alongside and another where in our division educator and we have been rocking RT's class. We've been talking about gender and skin color, and consent and empathy, and our body is an economy it's been butter teaching team is shifting and a new person is being onboard as someone with many years of experience. So today at the lunch table when the topic of gender and genitals came up one of our student plainly looked up and said I'm a girl today, but I know that teacher Co. isn't no be in the look on the incoming teachers based was priceless.
She was shocked in a good way and she just looked around at the two of us and that this class is incredible and I am so impressed as I said to all those watching Saturday morning. This is child abuse may the Lord have mercy on that young woman bring her to himself that I put a clip of a mom's her loving mom with her with the little boy taught the boy as he's reading through the gay BC book and moms Bosch's helper could be accepting an open and welcoming little get through the whole clip.
With this display. It is much as we have time this was that the last clip that I played Saturday morning to just say America needs God there is no political solution to fix the system for solely for this school, so it goes on to the end of the alphabet again loving mom involved with her kid raising a kid voice that we say please no no no no no this gets good growth confused. What's a political solution for that whom we can elect is can fix that. There is no political solution should be be involved. Yes, SS midterm election is important.
Yes SS but friends we need God story of the church sweeping from their into society. Come back just one of tell you how we can make a difference together. I've got some hope, some encouragement for you and hopefully I'm saying what you think. I gotta tell you about the middle school boy that came up to talk to me. The book signing. Redoing the political seduction book after a message got here with this 12-year-old boy said will be right back on the line of fire, together we cannot be some general question for me to differ with me looking you piece your mind or just reading the Bible and wondering about something. Get some calls, 866-3487 84. Take live calls Friday.
I should social media question.
So here's a good day to get in.
866-34-TRUTH okay I will tell you conversation I had with a 12-year-old boy. I believe it was his mom and dad with her, but he did all the talking. They smiled as he talked young couple and the total boy.
He came to to my table after I spoke Saturday in Pensacola. The light the fire again conference was doing a book signing my political seduction book suits great time to meet people face-to-face and hear from them and it was really really interesting it was. It was really really interesting to hear how many people came up to me and said I so so and feeling like this because in my message I gave a list of ways to know that we had been politically seduced as someone voted for Donald Trump twice as someone who strongly encourages Christians to get involved, be it in the local school board voting are being informed assume it is been on the front lines of the culture wars now for almost 20 years especially focused on on on LGBT Q plus related issues and reaching out to people at the same time so as someone encouraging us not to withdraw for the political scene but to be salt and light in the midst of it, is it. Here are ways to know that we been been politically seduced and I've been to this on the air and want to rehash it again. But in a warmer, more concerned about when the elections than winning the lost.
We become become an appendage to a political party when when we when we lift up a person in a way that we should only lift up the Lord we become as vulgar and nasty as the candidates that we support when we divide over candidate rather than unite around Jesus and on and on. So be going through this and one after those people so that's how I feel like I could speak up now.
