It's time for the line of fire with your host activist and author, international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown your voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution Michael Brown is the director of the coalition of conscience and president of fire school of ministry get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH. That's 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown as I am speaking to you live from North Carolina, a complete solar eclipse is taking place in different parts of the country.

One of the areas old maybe a couple hours from where I am right now that will be witnessing, or has just witnessed a total solar eclipse. So what better thing to do. Then live talk radio during a historic eclipse this is Michael Brown. Welcome to the line of fire.

I have a question for you.

Talk about some controversial issues today but have a question for you. Do you believe that this eclipse is some type of assign from God to believe that God is speaking to us through this eclipse or getting the attention of the nation and there are many interesting and unique things about this this article on USA today about the solar eclipse and it mentions it will be the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since when 1776 the founding of the nation and in its going across America, a certain diagonal line going to say from from top to bottom across the nation roughly and then what is it seven years from now. There's one expected but that the line will go on the other direction make like a giant ask over America. How often do these kinds of things happen. The visibility of this is what a 70 mile path across the nation. We can see this total eclipse just got to our offices to do radio and some of the folks were standing outside and they had the proper glasses to put on so I just glanced up from where we were and Edward were near total here It's kind of interesting. It's just this unusual dark feeling outside just something different. It's not like thunderstorm clouds were subsidy to something unique, but it's it's still light outside and I thought was his can get all dark, even a couple hours writing know exactly the effects of it was pretty wild to look up and see this is God getting our attention through this. I did a poll on Twitter and got so far with two hours left in the poll almost 1200 votes. This for Twitter poses a lot of responses for us and 76% of those responding said it's not a sign 76% 2% said assign a blessing, 13% sign of judgment 9% assigned to both, but only 24% so less than 1/4 sought that it was a sign 76% said it was now the way I look at it that saying one of two things. It could be that God is speaking to us getting our attention because he is a point that the heavenly bodies as signs yes part part of why they are there as as signs in certain times and purposes, so God is speaking, but we are so dull without hearing that's choice one choice two is obviously not a prophetic sign, which is why most people don't think it's prophetic side. It was a prophetic sign, then we would know right so great point. We've known about this for over 30 years.

Did we know it would come at a critical time when the nation is divided when there's a lot of darkness over the nation. In other words, we know we know it's a scientific phenomenon of just hearing on the news that folks came from Japan.

They bought their tickets in 2011 plan exactly when the Caribbean what is it one of the witnesses with their eyes but is the timing of when the nation is just in a critical critical moment and deeply divided being torn apart sky getting our attention, to share my thoughts with you and never gonna dive into some of the critical difficult things taking place today and see if we can come away with the redemptive perspective I file the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get another minor fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown.

Thanks, during the broadcast of the 86648788 or so we know the solar eclipse. Something that people have been expecting.

Astronomers have told us this coming at this particular date and sure enough, exactly as spoken. You can tell these things can happen.

You have to be a rocket scientist to stuff to know the patterns of the stars of the sun, the moon and all this in okay so they know this is coming if this came at a time when everything was kind of peaceful and calm in America when nothing unusual was going on. It was whatever you good bad problems solutions good things happening that this whatever normal time in our history, you might think wow this is simply a scientific phenomenon. This is a natural phenomenon.

Wow it's breathtaking starving. It's incredible. Wow. But when it happens at a time of great crisis in America where the media is stirring things up and fanning things into flame when there is great division in American great division even in the church in America right now and with your for president Trumper against Pres. Trump in terms of believing in him or not believing in him. The fact is, the presidency is under assault right now. It's a critical time. Is this a reminder that it's a critical time in history have to sort that out.

It's I listen I'd be a fool not to ask these questions when you when you have not just a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event. Once a century. Once in several centuries once since the founding of our nation. So are we in that critical situation.

Let's see if the Lord through his people continues to sound the alarm and through his people blows the trumpet to say wake up America wake up America.

This darkness over the nation. Wake up.

I'm not saying that this is a prophetic sign, God did not speak to me personally about it, or reveal something in the word to me in a direct way.

I do know I do know this. If we lived 2000 years ago the days of Jesus. If we lived 3000 years ago in the days of David. All of us would think this was a sign it in unusual event in the heavenly's we would all think it's assigned there. There's a whole discussion and in the Talmud which is millions of words with many many discussions of many many subjects, but there are different discussions about eclipses and eclipses a bad sign for this group. It's a bad sign for Israel if it happens like this. If it happens like that because it's the kind of thing to get your attention. Each okay what what's going on here Amos the first chapter, Amos preaches and and the background says he preach this two years before the earthquake two years before the earthquake yet, so he saying, the Lord is thundering his voice is thundering and bringing this word and then next thing you know there's an earthquake will that gets the nation's attention.

So, in the Babylonian Talmud. Sue, the tractor called Sue, 29, a it's begins to discuss these various issues and it has to do with eating in the sukkah eating in the booth. The tabernacle in various things relating to that weather patterns and wind coming and when you see you sit there if it's windy and rainy, and so on. So it then leads and as often happens in the Talmud kind of flow of consciousness or discussion weaved together over several centuries in different places as if it's happening kind of one event after the other after the other so the sages taught when the sun is eclipsed is a bad omen for the entire world and then the Talmud gives this parable to what is this matter comparable. It's comparable to a king of flesh and blood, who prepared a feast for service and placed a lantern before them to illuminate the hall.

He became angry at them and said to serve and take the lantern from before them and sees them in darkness and then there other traditions and shredder every year since when the heavenly lights. It is the southern motor eclipsed. It's a bad omen for the enemies of the Jewish people, which is a euphemism for the Jewish people because they are experienced in their beatings. Here's a parable similar to a teacher comes to the school with a strap in the sand who worries the child was accustomed to be beaten each day and every day is the one who worry so because Israel sending Israel, often under judgment. They see the clips they realized something is wrong again these are just some of the traditions if during the clips that the visage of the sun is like red blood.

It's an omen that sword, that is, wars coming to the world if the sun is black like sackcloth. It's made of dark gold here. It's an omen that arrows of hunger coming to the world and so on. In the clips in the early morning as an omen. The calamity is hastening all the clips in the late afternoon is an omen that calamities tanks of these different opinions weaved together all I say is this. This is a unique time to be having this unique event in our history vessel. That's all I can say that's obvious right. I think anyone should be able to say that this is unique event is happening in a unique time in our nation's history and if you're praying to God wake us up, wake us up, wake us up. You pray all the more fervently wake us up, wake us up the eclipses get you to pray less fervently but is it something beyond that will let us see see how God speaks if he speaks to us through nature.

If he speaks to us through his people and and look as I mentioned a few minutes ago. The fact that the last time that this happened in 1776 not 1775 or 77, but the year of our independence is is our national independence sick or we carry ourselves up from the in side and that the clips that comes in seven years and then the X goes the other way the line goes the other way?

A page on XX marks the spot is America under divine judgment will if we had the Bible here giving us commentary. It could tell us what God was saying through this right now we have to says, Lord, are you speaking through nature and eagerly.

Either way, even if this is just a natural phenomena. Either way, when a critical time in our nations history. So let's let's dive in on some things, since the tragic events at Charlottesville and some of the president's comments. The media has been pushing this narrative and weigh in at any point I may get some calls 866-34-TRUTH 87884. Here's without the media secular left-wing media is pushing this particular narrative that says the following Pres. Trump got into office through the votes of white supremacists and neo-Nazis all write. That's his base. That's his content contest constituency. He is a racist president appealing to the worst elements in America. Now that has been revealed by his Charlottesville comments, and therefore anyone standing with him as a Nazi sympathizer. The media may not be that overt, some or similar that plane clear but that is the narrative that is being driven. Therefore, if you voted for Pres. Trump. Therefore, if you endorse Pres. Trump. Therefore, if you serve in any capacity in his administration.

You need to distance yourselves from this racist president that is the narrative that is being put forth. I do not believe that narrative is a true or accurate. Dark eyed to have concerns about many issues in our nation. There is much racial division in our nation. I believe that during the campaign that some of Pres. Trump strengths were also his weaknesses that way see rally people together also were divisive and that that same struggle is continuing the license the strengths and the weaknesses it's the same person again. It's that divine wrecking ball. It's that with one brother called God's chaos candidate, and, in other words, that there is good swirling around the gets done. And there's bad that that that gets done to me that's that's being realistic and honest. So there are leaders now a corporate leaders who have dropped off Pres.'s committee say were done were not served with the Republican politicians who are stepping back. The question is why on faith.

Advisory leaders like my friend James Robison that's been on the face advisory Council or Dr. Richard Lander Pastor Jack Graham meant that that I know and respect. Why haven't they dropped off the face advisory Council.

I mean there's one tweet from Matthew Dowd, who is the chief political analyst at ABC news and he said not a single member of Trump's evangelical counsel has resigned. We have learned. Corporate America has a greater moral Compass so so sad all hang on it is that an accurate statement. The fact that no one was actually Pastor A.R. Bernard did resign from the from the advisory Council. He said it became obvious that there was a deepening conflict in values between myself and administration and let him make the choices he makes a respect that that's between him and God and he's got a massive car geisha New York City highly respected leader, and in many ways so I'm I'm not speaking against him in any way, but why is the faith advisory Council. They are in the first place is not to endorse the president.

I just got a note from one of the leaders in and he wanted me to share some things on a shirt with all of you in a moment. They are not a rubberstamp group. They are there for times like this to give counsel to give wisdom to speak as representatives of the Lord. It may not be politically correct the popular there. There to do the right thing for plan by the Expo line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown of your voice and more cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown. I don't overstate it on truthful for the first time in the history of the universe. No no no no hype you listen listen for the first time in the history of the universe.

I am broadcasting live during the complete solar eclipse. That's true.

This is no hype there and what whatever you're doing right now is redo get-togethers first time in our history. This is ever happen right okay so just want to share that with so I was speaking Jacksonville Florida find creation yesterday morning and evening and was asked to fill in for my friend Sid Roth today and be his guest host hosting an interview with Jonathan Kohn about his new book, the paradigm just real while the tent stuff and in the book about parallels from ancient Israel to today. The get your attention thick wall anchors interested. Very interesting. So in order to do that and drive back from Jacksonville with my assistant Dylan last night got in close to three in the morning and would be home and readied it to get over for the shoot in North Carolina to date, and Jonathan has a lot of shocking apocalyptic type of stuff that's very intense about judgment and God shaking the nation, but believing that the God will send revival if we cry out to him. So I got a note from my friend Scott Voelker referred from Scott on the broadcaster in the past and again it's the day of the solar eclipse and Scott sends me notes of interviewing Jonathan be sure not to look directly into his eyes, assured that with the audience before the show. They got a good kick out of that. Okay so let's go back let's go back to Charlottesville all right and will start with clip number one. This is in the immediate aftermath of the riots breaking out there and then the car ramming that kills a young woman, a protester ledge white supremacists mows her down. Listen to what the president said that we condemn in the strongest possible terms. This egregious display of hatred and bigotry and violence on many sites on many sites.

It's been going on for a long time in our country that Donald Trump not Barack Obama is been going on for a long long time is no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and how I would time our you say well okay that was great except yet except except to talk about things being wrong on all sides. When you have a white supremacist neo-Nazi rally when you had people with heil Hitler comments us or or or salutes anti-Jewish comments and on and on. You had that group then you had people like local people like Heather Heier who was tragically killed that day.

Just did not want to see the kind of hate in her city support of a counterprotest and then you had the bad counter protesters. The NT for people and others that were there to stir up trouble and and both sides were prepared for some violent confrontations and they happen so understand what the president was saying, but look that the attack that the shocker attack the car ramming that that was that was one thing and one thing only.

That was from the white supremacist side attacking the counter protesters so many people said okay, not the critics but friends of the present we we know it is pointless, yet there was that stuff on all sides but that day what you do is you focus on the evil of what supremacist neo-Nazis in the KKK. All these groups, which trumps critics the president's critics try to timetable those your people that you support. They should cater to them Behrmann only 500 people for this big rally 500 people thought right to have a given movement was it that was there anyone but you condemn that the clearest possible terms, and then you could say if if you like me hate these things in the testament stand against them.

There is a way to protest but Lester was peacefully so so you say that right so we failed to do that, he came under massive criticism. So then that Mondays. This is a Saturday, Monday, he started the statement from economy, and so on and then said hey but based of Events Took Pl. in Charlottesville. I will provide nation with an update was on FBI Jeff sessions, and so on to the selected criminally and this weakens recent fall should be held fully accountable and then he says is of said many times before it no matter the color of our skin.

We all live under the same laws will salute the same great flag.

We are all made by the same Almighty God, we must love each other show affection for each other night together and condonation of hatred, bigotry and violence must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil and those who cause violence and stammer criminals and thugs, including KKK neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant everything we hold dear as Americans we are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our creator, we are equal under the law, and we are equal under our Constitution right so clear statement categorically nailing KKK neo-Nazis, white supremacist, you don't do that with your support base. You don't do that with the people you're appealing to is not appealing to them. He has not appealed to them. He is clearly stating that while many said his critics said too little too late. Watch the body language. He was insincere. He didn't really mean it.

Listen at at my worst moments of taking issue with Pres. Obama if he got up and made a statement that I thought was the right statement to make. Even if if I thought was a little late or even if I question some of the sincerity. Come on, if you if you make the statement that's okay. Thank you for making that statement.

I thought that well that did not happen. Now the next day the president is back with the media and this is when he really gets himself in hot water so Johnny jumped to clip number four, so this is the August 15 press conference at Trump Tower clip number four why because I want to make sure statement that the statement is correct and there was no way. There was no way of making a correct statement that early. I had to see the facts. Unlike a lot of reporters I know David Duke was there. I wanted to see the facts right. So you say look, the reason I initially said that stuff on all sides, because that's what I saw I saw what was going on. There was there was violence on both. There was bad stuff on both sides. But again, the day of the event with that rally with that act of terror.

That's the date you focus on the evil of what supremacist neo-Nazis KKK he say I couldn't just do because I had a know all the facts.

What was going on. All right. Okay fine and and now yesterday, you condemn things in the clearest possible terms while here's were gets dice will come back the other side of the break play two more clips and then I want to weigh in the faith advisory Council who they are, what they're doing and what our posture should be with you voted for the president or whether you voted for Linkletter South election out some constructive advice. We come back. It's the line of fire with your host activist, author, international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown voice of more cultural and spiritual revolution get into the line of fire now by calling 6643 here again is Dr. Michael Brown welcome welcome to the line of fire. This is Michael Brown and right now as I speak to you in different parts of the nation affect some within a couple hours of me. There is a total solar eclipse taking place in the unique qualities of this one being viewed only from America. Some of the unique things. Last time this happened was 1776. Whether you from Hoosier Tate in our history whether you believe this is God getting our attention or just say hey it was an astrological astronomical phenomenon that we knew was going to take place either way it's taking place at a unique time in our nation's history. With this great division in great pain, great confusion and inherently the media is driving a lot of this and there are radical left-wing groups that stand against many things precious to us who are driving a lot of this which means friends.

Pastors, leaders, individual believers don't let the media set the agenda don't dance to the medias tune come back to that more in a moment. First, let's go back to August 15 Trump tower the president during a press conference. It was a very feisty pressed conference both ways. The president and the press and he is talking about the initial statement that he made about Charlottesville. He was waiting to get all the information and facts and then the day before flatly planning, condemning KKK neo-Nazis, white supremacists now we go on in their press conference. Clip number five as he is interacting with the media.

What about the old left. They came charging at the as you say the Albright do they have any semblance of guilt is this what about the fact that came charging that they came charging with clubs in the hand swinging clubs do they have any problem. I think they do discern that was a horrible horrible day.

Wait a minute I'm not finished. I'm not finished Wagner's that was a horrible day I was there is very closely much more closely than you people watch and and you have you had a group on one side there was bad and you had a group.

On the other side that was also very violent and nobody wants to say that I'll say it right now had a group you had a grip on the other side that came charging in without a permit.

And they were very, very violent. Now here's here's the fact he's absolutely right. He's absolutely right.

There's no question about that that that you had looked look that the NT for groups. They have been violent across America go to go to my website instructor and in read about this about how the media is not portraying things accurately look. Of course I despise the neo-Nazis. Of course I despise it.

Pray for their salvation but despised with a stand for what supremacist KK, New York, Jew and a follower of Jesus, of course, the connection when it is completely foreign, repulsive, repugnant to me. Only I do not need to say that every day I do not need to say that if if if I meet Germans German Christians. They don't need to tell me every day they renounce the Holocaust and that we understand that we understand but I'm saying it again.

Just as people get all worked up and sometimes our listening but there's no question that the violence on college campuses of the shutting down of events and physical attacks on professors and others.

This is been coming from the radical left to the president was right to draw attention to could member the day before. He unconditionally clearly condemned by name neo-Nazis what supremacist KKK in the clearest possible terms, but now is calling out the media wired to reporting on the other side of this you CNN put out this headline check this out.

They put out a headline saying unmasking the leftist anti-for movement activists seek peace through violence okay but then is what I'm reading here after representatives from anti-for the protested they got rid of the activists seek peace through violence thing can speak against us.

The line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 8663 here again is Dr. Michael Brown remember there is a narrative being pushed by the secular media hates prison Trump. You may say, I could never vote for a man like that and allow Christians to stand with him have whatever views you have listed the strongest Trump critic that I know who voted for him with great concern, but daily deeply expresses great concern to me, the strongest critic that I know is my wife Nancy and I say this with her permission.

Lest you think I live in an echo chamber four months before he was elected she said and she said I think he's going to be the one that gets elected. She just had that feeling with it but she said this to me. She said someone like that in the White House could ruin the nation. That's what she said to me, and she felt she looked at it, evaluated it, felt she had to vote against Hillary Clinton hoped that that that God could use president Trump in a positive way voted for him with great trepidation much more trepidation reservation. I had, but probably on a daily basis. We discussed these issues and she raises her great concern I and and there's no one in the world. I respect more than my wife Nancy okay.

She has more impact on my life than anyone. Aside from the Lord. So not living in some echo chamber reverence like the presents the greatest thing that ever happened.

President's amazing and yet without question. I see how God has used him and is using it and I see the downside. Trust me I IC balsa I could take it aside, and how God is with president company amazing things are happening or how he's bringing great harmonica I could take it aside and argued passionately and say okay Dr. Brown you understand so trust I understand that everybody get mad at me or nobody get mad at me but I'm not concerned with who gets mad at me is a cylinder with me or you which about our nation, which I managed so there is a narrative, the media is driving narrative is we have a racist Nazi sympathizer president, everyone must distance himself from them, and bring him down. That is a false narrative in my most strident days of being a critic of the president when I was writing articles against him and putting up videos against him during the primaries and raising my concern so I understand the concerns I can just turn them off, but I felt it simmer Hillary Clinton, then I'm voting for him and I'm hoping that the prophetic words are true about God using him as his divine wrecking ball. That's that's what I have been hoping for, but knowing that a wrecking ball can do good or can you heart depends on which direction it's going and what it's going after in my strongest days of criticizing the president. I did not believe he was a racist or an anti-Semite just to tell you that right and Nancy, who, like I said is a strong critic of the present fun and sometimes is what you see it and she's ready to pull her hair out because it's so biased and twisted, and she saying this is someone's critic, but Nancy does not believe that the president is a racist or an anti-Semite. So just making those things clear in terms of my own perspective, but here is where things get dicey. Here is where it becomes much more controversial and I wish the president didn't say what he said and I hope he will make things clear in the days ahead so this again is the same the same press conference and here he is again interacting with the media clip number 65 condemned neo-Nazis I've condemned many different groups, but not all of those people were neo-Nazis believe not all of those people were white supremacist by any stretch of protest the taking down of the statue.

Robert Ely so she is and you take a look at some of the groups that you see you know it. If you were honest reporters, which in many cases, you're not, but many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert Dilley so this week it's Robert Ely I noticed that Stonewall Jackson's coming down.

I wonder is a George Washington next week and is the Thomas Jefferson.

The week after. You know you'll really do have to ask yourself where does it stop by the protest. Excuse me.

You take a look. The night before they were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert Ely are and then he made the statement that they were fine people on both sides. That is what has caused all these leaders to distance themselves from the president as if he was saying among the neo-Nazis KKK white supremacist. There were some fine people we know that many of the counter protesters release some of the counter protesters were not the anarchist or the anti-for people that they were somewhere local folks who said we don't want this display of hatred in our in our city and in yes there are people who are fine people who don't want the Robert Ely statue to come down.

They are not white supremacist.

They're not neo-Nazis we find out what Winston Churchill said about Robert Ely and look at what he did after the Civil War in terms of his suitability and and things that were helping to rebuild the nation. So there are some who say look for historical reasons owes the statue shouldn't come out of the say anything that brings us a memory of the Confederate past the days of slavery should come to our understand the arguments that's what I understood, the president was saying that there were fine people on both sides, and he distinguished these people who were just upset with the taking of the monument from the neo-Nazis what supremacist and KK cancel cobalt right. By the way, it is been heard and repeated by the media as he was saying. The refined people among the neo-Nazis and fine people of among the white supremacists and KKK along with fine people on the left, that were protesting so what what has that now produced the mother of the girl tragically killed the young woman Heather higher who was the one fatality from the alleged white supremacist that rammed his car into the crowd of counter protesters and injured a number of others. She's on good morning America this is August 18. She is being interviewed by Robin Roberts click number seven. Listen to what she says I'm not talking to the president now. I'm sorry wanting what he said about my child and it's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him. I thought actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. higher with the KKK and the white supremacist. That's all he was doing he was comparing the bad radical elements. These anarchists, these violent people to know that anti-fa is listed as a domestic terrorist group by New Jersey Homeland security. That's who's talking about. He was trying to separate the people like Heather higher and others that he felt were not part of the neo-Nazis on the other side from everybody else. That's what he was trying to do so here's the deal should the faith advisory Council. These evangelical leaders for the sake of the gospel and for their own reputations. Should they distance themselves from the president. My answer is why in the world when they do that what why distance yourself from the president in a time of great need you civil because is a racist or big belly. He's not a racist bigot.

To my knowledge he is not a racist and a big I don't like some of the things he says. Or the way he said certain things or the ways treated certain people I don't like certain of those things and praying that he'll that he will grow as a president and if in any way. He knows the Lord that he will grow as a Christian, or that if he does know the Lord all that will truly come to know him and grow.

I pray for these things I desire these things but but in less he comes out with some blatant statement of I support the neo-Nazis or I stand with a white supremacist or you got fine people among them, and this repent of that. Then you stay with me says those things you you can call to repentance. Yes, repent you leave and you make a public statement shouted out to the nation, we disassociate ourselves but that's not the case number one.

I believe his words are being misunderstood. I met is apologists if I was his apologies that would tell you about, but Nancy's strident criticism of the president and with respect as the president.

We understand that I wouldn't I wouldn't tell you about my past criticisms of the president. I wouldn't disagree with anything he said if I was is apologists. I just try to put a spin on. I wish he didn't say certain things waited but I understand what you try to say and the media is out to crucify if it's not alleged collusion with Russia when the election that nonsense now scroll he's a Nazi sympathizer. When this goes away.

What's going to come next to just watch and see. The fact that he wanted Hillary Clinton did not is unforgivable. This can be an all out assault by the secular media which can be friends if you're a conservative follow Jesus and opposes you to it's against you to because here's what's coming next. You need to be a prophet to see this condemnation of the Nazis. Of course, we can't become neo-Nazis were, of course, of course do that 24 seven.

Every second ever be.

Of course, of course. Of course we condemn their ideologies in college repentance and this is completely un-American stance against everything of who we are 100%. I'm just telling you what's coming next is that those who are followers of Jesus hold conservative values. You're also not remunerative for years, ready or not, seizure, KKK, and look to SPLC the Southern poverty Law Center, look at their last look at their last run the same last conservative Christian organizations on the same list as neo-Nazis. The line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice aboard cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown welcome welcome to the line of fire. Boy, I got about five hours of stuff to share with you immediately boil it down to two minutes please go to the website Esther to and you go there read my latest article, she trumps evangelical advisors a bandit and we've also got some great new video stirring up a lot of discussion including the preface to the King James only how that refutes to the King James Bible.

Heather refutes King James only as its in-depth you find it really, really fascinating and I glanced some of the comments summary tax completely misunderstand the points remake, yet amazingly enough, check those out and if you haven't gone to find out about my new book, or saving a sick it comes out in barely over a month. It will awaken something in you with hope that will stir your heart, saving a sick okay in my article explain why the faith advisory Council should not forsake the president first. Some of the men on this Council didn't endorse trump the president ever.

And one told him he was their last choice of all Republican candidates so their appearance, their presence on the faith-based counsel does not mean endorsement or approval. Second, it's wrong to assume these men are simply yes-men who never differ with the president and insert the college said to me last week we Christians are so quick to divorce one another. The moment conflict arises forth is ridiculous to think that the ministry leaders that this should dance to the meeting is to remember their ministers not politicians. Now I get into a lot more depth in the article. You can read it but here is what Dr. Richard land sent to me today.

One of the men on the face of faith, advisory Council highly respected Christian leader PhD from Oxford University, president of Southern Evangelical seminary minutes met with presidents been in the White House before I had one meeting with some other national leaders with some White House staff and and briefly with Jared Kushner never met with the president renting some and I was in one time that when these guys is been behind the scenes with the president. With these other political leaders also had some amazing open doors open different nations to speak to political leaders in here and there. In America, but I'm not one of his guys, it's always in the White House and access to this one or that one this.

That's not my history or background, but Dr. land he's been there done this and this is what he sent to me.

He said this is the day that the medial went wild with a picture of evangelical leaders who surround present troubling hands-on. How could you do that workable conviction as if laying hands on him somehow endorsement every word, every policy he said this. Declan wrote this to me today when we met at the White House and we ended up in the Oval Office, praying for the president. Here is the chronology we met at 9 AM and started working there were several times that morning when we had voice concerns about some of the president's actions and encouraged him to do more in certain areas. First, we encourage them to do what he needed to do to keep the Chaldean Christians from being deported to a rack with a face severe persecution or death. Interestingly enough, just before VP Pentz walked in and invited us to come meet with the present, the Oval Office, we've been discussing the need for the trump administration to pursue significant deadly initiatives to alleviate the cycle of poverty and violence in our inner cities. This is what the faith advisory Council is talking about that day. Stuff that used to get that matters uses American yeah that's important you say wow I know they would do it well is because they're doing this in private. It's because they're not politicians there. There is ministers and other addressing issues of spiritual concern.

Don't let these Iraqi Christians be deported. Don't let the there in America. Rose of how they got here. This is a place of refuge for them. Don't let them be deported this big. That's major event here. This again we have been discussing the need for the trump administration to pursue significant initiatives to alleviate the cycle of poverty and violence in our inner cities, then immediately upon our return from praying with the president. We discussed the desperate need for prison reforms and encourage the president to take the lead in bringing about such reforms in our prison systems. I can assure you that the advisory Council is anything but a rubberstamp we are there to advise and give counsel and that we do. Thank God there. There I wish the same men were there during the presidencies of Barack Obama and George Bush. Bill Clinton I'm sure different ones of them had different advisors. They were with in different voices.

They listen to, but I for one wish that all the men and women that were in that room had access to the years of Pres. Obama and access to the ears of President Bush and President Clinton, and in the previous President Bush. These are the kind of people that you want. Speaking at your life and speak into the lives of your leaders. One pastor was very clear about what he said this publicly. Pastor Jack Graham if we have an issue with the president will take that up with him privately, just like he said is a pastor if I have an issue with a congregational member will address that privately encourage the members do something wrong we take them aside. We address private when I can announce it to every body that's part of the integrity of relationships that that's part of walking in righteousness. That's part of what makes you trustworthy and how many times James Robison on this very show, said that in the strongest of terms. I know James well, we are dear dear friends in these last few years our hearts been deeply join together. He's most loving, compassionate guy. Most redemptive guy you'll ever meet, but boy does he speak the truth if he has an issue he just say it loudly and clearly, and he's got an intimidating presence, and in that case, and in no uncertain terms as he spoke into candidate trumpeting president trump that he can't just pick up a cell phone call and today I think like you could the past but obviously things change when you president but put it in one particular case. He he call the president after something happening was unhappy with and rebuked him so strongly that it is subsequently call back and apologize for being so strong. These are not yes-men. Say whatever you say, Mr. Pres. They honor him the respect him speak to him with respect, they pray for him. They would've joyfully done the same. Had Pres. Obama opened the door to them. So I'm glad they're there. If the president God for bid took an outwardly clearly racist, bigoted, Stan refused her counsel then you say we are wiping the dust off her feet but it's quite the opposite. Right now hate last thing if you didn't see it pastor Brian Euston, the leader of the Hill song movement massive movement often criticized for being compromised or this or that others love hillside love their music. Brian Euston issued a very clear statement to the nation of Australia is there about to have a national vote on redefining marriage initiative very strong statement encouraging everyone to vote and saying as a Christian.

It should be very clear.established marriages union of a man and woman people can make their choices and anything here. What when the that the laughter the media attacks us for this position.

They think it's bigotry. No were simply being biblical and holding to God's standards. And then sometimes we forget that you got gay couples and they just want to live their lives and so on. God-given free will is there choice but here's where we should stand so just want you to know he put that statement out and put it out the way, that is, he speaks as a Christian leader speaking truth, but with grace so I hope at least I'm not trust me, I'm anything but the apologist would also trust me on that one got left behind the scenes communications were there issues we we address them. But let me say this, something like that is said by national leader get up and applauded. Say amen to it, forward friends we go
