Why is the president of apologetics.
Research what is found alive born you have questions of our Bible doctrines is a max likewise glances goals responding to your questions at 877207276 here's Matt slick show broadcasters look to reduce February 16, 2022, which means going to call right now to live going to do you do is dial 877-207-2276 England. I made sure that I updated the link to watch participate with the people in the chat room if you want to watch me sitting here comes a big deal course book to people they join up under the chat systems we could do it by going to Facebook Facebook CRM.org Facebook you can watch there and done or you can just go to the YouTube account but also I could link up there on on the current site so that you go to the COM homepage and the right hand side it says you a mess look like click on that'll take you page and normally we have set up so that it just shows but we had a problem with an update.

So there you go, and also let you know that I'm one clubhouse a lot and also discordant and on clubhouse are going to rooms and I teach. Not that I think I'm a great teacher.
But there are so many people just want to hear biblical theology because I got a lot of experience defending the faith. You don't frequently ask and answer our winds up with me answering questions and and praise God for that age.
I think the Lord for that. So if you're curious about that clubhouse.com you can also go on the on the phone and do it and I just type in my name Matt slick and you build fine. We do that, I hope you want tonight teach on the price. We'll see what happens. See life going on and pray for the people in Africa there are more reports of the Christian being murdered by Muslims. They are following the Muslims are falling with the Quran actually says serving nine. Now you know people say to me not come on keep saying this, but it's not really true religion is a Islam to reason the peaks are just extremists.
Well, not exactly, and I'll show you why lets you understand one very important principle inside of Islam and the Quran that they have a principal called application is kind like the same thing in the New Testament abrogates the Old Testament numbers the New Testament supersedes which of the Old Testament is menial test was invalid. But the new revelation clarifies and expands on the old the same thing occurs in Islam. And so later Veronica Seurat's were chapters supersede the ones written before the very last Seurat's server 114.
The second to last us nine reason, the numbers are whacked is because they don't do it the way we do it chronologically. They do the Quran is arranged by the biggest chapters to the lowest the smallest chapters assess how they did it and so 09 is the second to last chapter that was written chronologically chronologically but in the Quran.
It appears answering nodding this and nights when you read and then the hundred 14th is the last one but actually chronologically serving nine.
It was written just before server 114, which means it's nine is the final revelation from Allah on it. Whatever copy it refers to an sura 114 is very short and doesn't say anything relative to serving nine other words, what is said in server 114 does not abrogate anything in server nine, so the server nine is the last revolution on the brink topics in the Muslims to follow it. But when the forbidden months are passive, then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them and sees them believe them and lie in wait for them in stratagem, but if they repent and establish regular prayers, and practice regular charity that open the way for them for Allah is oft forgiving, most merciful the words this is that certain 95.
So in other words, kill them, but if they submit to your rule. See all his merciful you he's forgetting so in the meantime, go kill you and then this is syrup.
929 now I know someone named Dr. Luke and was on the doctor and he speaks Arabic is raised in an Arab Arab speaking country and he's a hard-core Christian.
And so he and I were doing some work together on AB and sat TV and so during a break. We got talking about server nine and he told me something to tell it to you. He told me that the next one to read to the first word is fight he said in Arabic, the word fight means fight to kill three told me fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day nor hold forbidden, which had been forbidden by Allah and his apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, of the people of the book. That's a Christian until they pay the just you with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
The just shows a heavy heavy tax so your the Muslim is told to seek out and kill the people of the book the Christians even them until they submit to the rule of Islam and pay the just a heavy tax so when people call it radical Islam. Franklin people, it's not. It's Islam I could do more on that and so that's what I'm saying. Pray for the Christians in Africa, particularly in Nigeria, so I wrote an article a while back months ago. Do Christians have the right of self-defense. Most people think Christians will suggest do nothing.
That's not what the Bible says we have the right of self-defense.
We do not have right of vengeance and I wrote this and is being distributed final 30 40,000 copies or so. It's just all over the place in Nigeria and so not writing to more articles. One is Christianity true defending Christianity and another one is Islam true in attacking Islam because Islam is a false religion and am going to the Quran and the hadith and I'm showing with the Quran actually says. And so, for example, at the Quran says a man seed is formed in his chest.
Mary is a sister of Aaron and Moses and that it's okay to be true.
Wives processed this and then I talk about what's real Quran compare the crime, the Bible and acquittal of the dental hadith which is a deed to the sayings of Mohammed word says that Adam was 90 feet tall and also lovingly Mohammed owned a black slave and I Mohammed said women. More women are in hell than men because their intelligence is so lacking, and that I show how Allah is a deceiver. Then I have a section comparing Jesus and Mohammed then tackling the issue of salvation in this. Is there salvation in Islam noticed, so this is part of what it means to be a Christian and not all people are called to do this, obviously, but some people are called to go out and expose the lies of the enemy, not just a passive to be aggressive in exposing them sacred is 10 52 hold every thought captive as we go out apostle did with the Peter Peter did John did.
They went out they taught the gospel. It cost them their lives. Jesus says, pick up your cross daily and follow after me and here we go. You're part place gentlemen, you're part is to pray for us. You pray for my protection. Protection of my family.
You pray for the protection of those who will distribute these tracks this information in Nigeria and Malawi and Zimbabwe. Maybe even Kenya got connections there. You pray for the protection of the house and you you pray this is your job.
You intercede you pray, you ask God to expand the kingdom you ask God to to bring people into faith. You can do this. I don't want you to think you can't do anything, you know you're not right and traction have a radio show that don't have people over there in Africa so you pray and say Lord please open the door and closed stores prevent the enemy from hindering the spread of the gospel embolden the people your people may those tracks reach far and wide into the hands will you pray for that you pray that God's will will be accomplished this.
What you do need to pray for them and pray for others as well is let you know. You see I believe it's as God works all things after the counsel of his will, if that's what Ephesians 111 says that if you are a Christian you are hearing me because this is working for the counsel of God's will that you pray, lift up the people of Africa and of India been killed in India to and persecuted in China you can intercede and you can embolden through prayer, beseeching the Lord asking the Lord to work and he remembers your prayers. You're not an effective you can do great things in prayer. Okay now, having said all of that. If you want to be called folks. We have three open lines 877272276 was get them Mitchell from Charlotte, North Carolina, Mitchell, welcome here I am doing alright alright flexibly on the ontological ending economic church, the Trinity is the teacher. There's one God in three distinct simultaneous persons father-son Holy Spirit. Okay, the ontological Trinity deals deals with the nature on toss, which means the essence the nature the ontological Trinity states that the father-son Holy Spirit are all divine. They all have the divine essence divine thing. God is one simple thing that's called divine simplicity and so in the doctrine of the Trinity. We have sub doctrines is called ontological Trinity which teaches at the father-son Holy Spirit are all divine there all God, the economic Trinity counsel of record we could know me and has it with an arrangement of things and so we get the word economy from that and so the economic Trinity deals with the distinction of the function between the members of the Godhead to the father sent the son.
The father the son send the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not send the father or the son only the son be. Currently, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and things like this differentiation between them is said that the Holy Spirit convicts the world, but does not say that the father convicts the world's little differentiation between her, so to speak, functions or roles we should okay have quick and slick. There you go, but all right hey folks, guess what for open lines. What you call 877-207-2276 Carl South Carolina will likely yield. The at the people of the give people a day or the old paralytic for credit elaborate on that.
I'm under the impression it is easier to deal that paralytic right going to drop suffering yeah yeah I will contact the folks we have all 772-0777 mass Y call 770776 charismatic sling back everybody back on here with Carl. Carl still there. Alright, so what he was saying that he was talking to the Jews and they had been complaining about him that he was healing on the Sabbath. He was making very grandiose claims, so getting out of the boat Jesus cross over the sea and came to his own city and they brought him a paralytic lying on a bed seeking their seeing their faith use of the paralytic, take courage, son, your sins are forgiven and some of the scribes said to them, this fellow blasphemes in Jesus, knowing their thoughts addressed in the notice what he says take courage sent son, your sins are forgiven. Wait a minute. How could he save your sins are forgiven.
It's easy. Just saying this is blasphemy. If you can't do that scribe can't do that and so he said, knowing their thoughts… Who are you thinking evil in your hearts, which is easier to say, your sins are forgiven, or to say get up and walk so but so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. He said to the paralytic, get up, pick up your bed and go home and he got up and went home sweet Jesus is doing. There is a single you can say one thing but improving it and I could forgive Santa. Here's the proof. I can do it you get up, pick up your paralytic.
The proof was in his ability to do the miracles is backing up what he said so he was saying that he can forgive sins a hit on you can't suggest I can. Here's a proof of this. Get up into had a guy do that that this was going on in the question that no through him acknowledging that God and and but I thought it would be kind of got when he goes across the upper forgive us for that.
That's what he would try to find but well not, here's the saying of this gets very interesting forgiveness of sins is dependent, and only possible through the atonement of Christ and yet he said, your sins are forgiven and are already forgiven.
I wait a minute.
How can that be, there is something we call the now and the not yet right now you're free sins are forgiven, but the atonement that makes it possible is not yet. So now your glorified Romans 829 and 30, but not yet. So this means is that we have the disparity a attention I should say between what is happening and what's going to happen or what is guaranteed to happen and what's happening. So Jesus because he is God in flesh and because all things ordained by God knows and it's the fact that the atoning sacrifice is going to happen is been ordained for the foundation of the world. It is not possible not to happen because God is at work. He says your sins are forgiven under the Old Testament economy what's going on here is they had the Old Testament covenant, still because it was not done away with until the death of Christ. Gordon to Hebrews 813 Hebrews 952 60 so they were still under the Old Testament sacrificial system which ultimately pointed to Christ.
So by going through the issue of the sacrificial system. They had their sins functionally forgiven. That's what this means that the sacrifice of the Old Testament are ultimately pointing to Christ. With that with the true forgiveness because he was talked about things he was to sexless animals doesn't forgive, it's only the sacrifice of God in flesh. So what we have there in the Old Testament for them was a continual hundreds of years of of now. Now they were doing the blood sacrifice animal sacrifices they ultimately don't forgive the blood of Christ is that and so the now. The not yet is a constant attention. Not a bad way, but it's this is not here yet but it's common you know is not here, but it's common and so this is where the tension also manifest your sins are forgiven. Plus he has authority to do that, but ultimately it has to be for the bloodshed of Christ which fulfills a sacrifice so there is a perfect example of the now and not yet. Hope that helps you okay with that said forgiveness that we are Christian we forgive others. True forgiveness that only through and being a Christian with faith in Christ being anointed through the Holy Spirit that we can actually say we have true forgiveness for other and when you say that a nonbeliever that they cannot have active net forgiveness.
In that sense there is no ultimate forgiveness for you in their forgiving as well as being forgiven. They are not ultimately forgiven because they don't have the blood of Christ covering them their sins are still upon them and when they forgive that we aren't any different than unbelievers in this maybe maybe not, but you get my point here when I forgive someone well I don't even know if in my heart I make hundred percent forgiving. I remember once this is just experienced. That experience makes a doctrine, but I was greatly offended by somebody.
And I for gave until a few years later, I found that I hadn't because I still was harboring anger. Anger was hidden and I to deal with again and then later again so if as a Christian. Not that I'm representable Christians but is if is a Christian we have trouble forgiving completely and totally how much more will nonbeliever, I don't believe that any individual is perfectly capable of forgiving because my work is not perfect, but on the other hand, yet we Christians that we can forgive and we do and we do it through Christ of the best of our ability and appreciate your stream that you have a book that you, too, and God bless.
All right, let's get on the phone with C next longest waiting is Al from North Carolina Outlook I'm at my call.
I played that role what they were included a book of Enoch, and I think they book of Enoch is referenced in the way the first computer. Remember, Jude Jude okay so the question that about why the book of Enoch included in the Bible and I didn't have a good after because because not the Bible never was. The Jews never recognize it as being included the Dead Sea Scrolls and here's bragging this is bragging. I have actually been literally inside Kumon cave one with the first set of scrolls work were discovered that she been in it all to Brad so the Dead Sea Scrolls contains different manuscripts, but also other non-biblical documents. The Essenes copied all kinds of stuff recognize what the Scripture like that Japanese message is one of seven to Matt Flynn why call 770776 charismatic slave rights of the break was fortuitous, little bit of research and found that there were many more books they're not biblically considered by biblical that were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, including books of the Apocrypha which never comes. The Jews never considered to be Scripture and also calendar calendar calendar texts and varying historical texts. I'm looking at a website on the legal texts.
The para biblical text poetic literature sectarian texts and so this is from Dead Sea Scrolls.org and so I just little bit of research so there is lots of books that were in the Dead Sea Scrolls that are not Scripture.
They knew the Essenes knew what was Scripture. These copied other things as well because a lot of these books you understand Lonnie's apocryphal books are historical books and their valuables for history so they were copied. That's only just were kept in the in there as well and the Jews knew those art Scripture. We know that we know which ones are just not even a discussion that only later, people say they were in Dead Sea Scrolls of their father Scripture know this seems never considered in Scripture, it never was part of okay so follow-up around how Bible Bible when they determine which books are canonical or not. In the canon, and I know that there was criteria that they had the charge at the time and I don't remember when that actually occurred with that like 300 or 480 see the Old Testament was already known and already accepted with the Christian church did was recognize Scripture. It did not determine Scripture is a very important point.
It did not say that Scripture says we recognize what is Scripture there's a difference the authority of the church is not what declare something authoritative scripturally the church is subservient to God himself in the Scriptures because the Scriptures are inspired, the church is not the church is Jesus says my sheep hear my voice and follow me church hears the voice of the Lord and recognizes those scriptures now that's not to say that they didn't analyze and have disagreements with God in his sovereignty worked through church people and determined and work so that they would recognize what he intended to be Scripture.
And that's what happened at the were certain criteria that they would use as they would do these things like was it written in the New Testament sense written by an apostle or an amanuensis of the apostle. A lot of people don't know this but Mark for example: Mark was not a disciple of Jesus. Paul was later a disciple of Jesus and Paul and Peter and John. These are the district disciples, but they had amanuensis people who were scribes would write for them. Luke, for example, did this and so Luke was someone who wrote he wrote most of the New Testament is better fact in the book of acts book of Luke, volume 1, and the disciples recognize this and that the church recognize what you did was inspired because it's from the apostles make sense. There were other books available. I what is there a place where I could go look at the house. The criteria was that you Scripture. There are read articles on one of the think some of the things that the early church used apostolic if I forgot with when resources are shifted look about yourself, but some of the things were things like this have apostolic authority or the authority under the apostles. Was it addressed to the church doesn't have that power is it consistent with Scripture without the Old Testament did the church recognize it early on, I could understand something logical. Forget something very important that Christianity was considered by the Romans to be a division or a sect inside of Judaism in 70 A.D. Rome came in and destroyed Jerusalem and this is called the Diaz Barack the dispersion and so the Christians spread out the Mediterranean area. But before that 70 A.D. event, Nero was persecuting the Christians, and burning the mistaken and doing evil things. And Christians fled so now when the Empire of Rome was against the Christian because what Jews did and they thought the Christians were sect of Judaism Christians. They got the short end of the stick as well.
So they're fleeing they don't have time. In those situations as they hate was that a big counsel because the Romans would come in and wipe them out so they were hiding and the Scriptures were already known by the early church well before the 300s because they knew. These are from the apostles and it wasn't until after Rome let up on his persecution of the Christians that they could then have councils in roughly 325-ish A.D. if there's some stuff before that they had this these councils and look around that time the recognize and officiated what they knew was already Scripture.
So that's why it took so long.
Thank you. Write out God bless buddy. Let's get over to Troy from Virginia Troy welcoming on your question about the venue and where the brake line between the different question. No idea. Vengeance and self-defense okay self-defense occurs not as a Luke. There are some great errors will talk my little business grace coming up on shoulder past. So I use these illustrations okay if someone comes into my house and is breaking down the door and let's say threatening to kill me.
I know who you are, Matt, I know you live here him to come out to kill you.
At that point, I have the right of self-defense to let's say that this guy breaks my door down and talking this doesn't come in but he said him to come back and get you in and he takes off. I don't have the right at that point to shoot them in the back because threat is gone. I don't have the right to find out where he lives and then go kill him and if he were to harm or my family members. This is vengeance I don't have the right to go find him and harm him self-defense generally deals with the issue of the imminent danger. That's right, there.
This is not exactly an easy thing to get to work through.
So I have a friend who's an ex federal agent and we talked about this and he was giving me United States laws and in variations we talk generically and so it is a good illustration of summons outside in the sidewalk and they have a good thing and they are 15 and it's pointed to the ground and they say they're going to come into kill you don't have the right to shoot them from my door because the threat is not imminent. If they raise the gun and it's in the aggressive manner that initiated the house. Now I have that right of self-defense so self-defense is something that deals with the minutes imminent. Another great area, though what you do if you know for example, in Nigeria a bunch of Muslims on motorcycles with AK-47s are coming to a pass, and you know for a fact or coming in to kill 100s of villagers. Now what you do so in my opinion you have the right for a preemptive strike is not vengeance but it's to stop the harm that's coming in because the Bible says defend the helpless.
So now we have a command to defend the helpless and sleazy. These particulars with a look at each one so vengeance is going after them so they say they came in they destroy the village and then they took off and then what happens is people are getting together to go find him. In order to kill him. That's vengeance. That's a problem.
Ashley and Uruguay all I I have been going through economic and targeting everywhere that Very quickly to destroy men everywhere.
The carpet that they were going better there very hard and basically just shut me out and all that very trying all the that's the way of the wicked. You have been right preemptive striking. It's not an issue of killing we have the right of legal recourse to go after them and I'll tell you this the most threatening me legally. I go after people to write back. After these messages to open line 67707276 max Y call 77077 charismatic slave all you legal blurb, go off one thought so no overlap of the legal and you know so you go no idea that all like the audio but you should know which one you have? What is well well you know your after working out the following: collapse all their strong though you know you have a collapsible legal and of course I'm not a vengeful person you know where you go know what you do you do now is there are an precatory Psalms. Believe it or not, God, and if you're the legal recourse is breaking down as our system is becoming more corrupt and wickedness will continue to prosper, then it's just the fact that were going to be lied to and things are going to go wrong and then what you can get the options.
One of them is to pray while you was looking for their salvation but you can also pray Lord you know get him they have sought evil against your servant. They have sought to destroy your servant Lord reward according to their evil. Ultimately, Lord, for the work of salvation, but deal with them accordingly. You can pray that believe it or not is not a biblical to do that but then you see the thing is, Jesus pray for your enemies, and is exposed to do. Ultimately you want to pray for their salvation because the eternal damnation you want them to be saying court that your primary thing in this case, and sometimes you just have to accept. Not that I think it's okay. But Jesus accept the fact that that's how it is sometimes things go bad in the wicked prosper when you going to do.
Nice. Frustrating. Trust me I know I've been there since there is always figure out well. I can get anywhere with it little bit but there are difficulties in every situation must be looked at individually and weighed carefully that correct you aren't going anywhere remark. Troy got blissfully all right.
A scuffle with David from Kansas City. Dave welcome around here part barely hear you man. I have you turned out to little better. Go ahead, reading a book where you will ration in the original manage and you believe that reliable you don't like you don't glean how I can was not a logical necessity for making a claim they can verify this. True inspiration deals with the originals or what we call the autographs.
That's what it is an inspiration means that the apostles and the prophets wrote what they did under the breath of God as you work through them with a penned was absolutely authentic, accurate and inspired.
And now we have are copies of those inspired documents, but the copies are not perfect. That's it. So it is you have to believe that accurate transmission will then your problem because there though the copies are incredibly well-preserved, incredibly accurate. There are discrepancies and nothing significant insular 99.8%, roughly 9, and 20% textual identical vision of redundancy and issues of the we have the word of God.
It's accurate to say look the public to believe a Nancy result.
You also have to believe in in the inspiration of the transmission process next. You don't okay but help who saying this, who saying this to pay for it.
Talking well okay but the issue of inerrancy though I'm big on logic. All right and nothing in Scripture which is our source of truth states that transmission must also be inspired. It only states that that which is written is inspired but God certainly is capable of preserving his word and he has and he does and then what you do but a translation because when you translate some elected Spanish to say I'm hungry so you think wandering which is literally II have hunger we'll talk like that. So we will transit it super literally we to say I'm hungry. Is it accurate yes.
Is it a literal translation no. But on the other hand is literal yeah and you can do the same thing with Greek New Testament. For example, talk with us, author plus the good man and you can take author cost out which is the word man and because both hot. The definite article and author under thoughts were good or both in the was called a masculine singular nominative, then you can say the good man and so you can dig a little bit of variation in how things are translated, but it's accurate.
So how did this issue of the transmission issue and translation issues are related and is not as simple people just want to say you'll get the belief you leave the office of the expression of the autographs you have to leave this ration of the transmission of the document but you don't you don't it's it's a weak argument.
If someone were to say that to me believing I believe in the accuracy of the Bible. I believe the incredible accuracy, the transmission and the incredible accuracy of of translation. I believe that the defendant, I'm not knocking the Bible okay but there is a fact, their architectural variance from copies that the fact okay. It is in the Bible, not trustworthy, so similar to say to me if you can believe in inerrancy met. You also do believe in the inerrancy of the transmission process.
It's a Y workshop horses actually what logical principle must be in in place where to stay in Scripture that I must believe that where you show me that all are doing is is inventing a necessity, but they can demonstrate it logically and okay.
Sounds good right let's get let's get three of affordable lines going to be called quickly 877207276 and the wrong button or Joanne welcome you on the air. I yes while not my question. My thought Ryan how I'm going to raid K-1 from alcohol okay why are great in our lab. I'm not her veil Friday you happen and I'm walking on calibration because if you people don't know that you even the prayer ministry for Carmen you're such a sweetie soft smile and that's all that was my UK is nice to have you on the air was a way that would allow I'm chuckling. It's okay if I can floor it on a wide smile. You know it's a people in the number will mail you a great family, shirts and women are so good to say which is no problem at her whole family white man. Okay, remember okay so has been with. How do you know if your fruit is from God or not. What are our not writing sample water evidence that an online on how to hide that from the spirit and not hurt. Okay, so I'll tackle that right be all right. Joanne got Leah all right and you and works with her.
She's a sweetie. So how do you know with the fruit of the spirit are, you go to the Bible and it's so Galatians 522 through 23, and it's one fruit, ladies and gentlemen in the Greek is not fruits it's fruit one of them the fruit, the one fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law now, so an unbeliever beep, a loving and patient and kind. Yeah, they can with a say those of the for the spirit. No, because are not Christians they are fruit of the flesh Minutemen. How can you say some can be loving and peaceful and patient in a fleshly way. Of course they can't because even atheists can be loving to their children. They can be patient.
They can be kind but is not a fruit of the spirit is a fruit of the flesh, by definition, when, how would you know if your fruit is of the spirit or of the flesh because if the unbelievers could have fruit of the that looks like for the spirit, but truly the flesh. In talking with yours is for the spirit of flesh because you submit to the spirit of God. What we do is we say Lord Jesus please teach me work in my heart and we struggle with our sins, and then we learn what real love is not the atheist kind of love we learn what real patience is not the atheist kind of patients we learn what real kindness is not the atheist kind.
Our fruit of the spirit is centered on the work of Jesus. We emulate him. That's true fruit because the true fruit of God ultimately points to Christ and is the work of the Lord God with an atheist. For example, they mimic the same things that we do. They can be in a human level, loving but not an ultimate sense because is not sanctified by the blood of Christ, and it's not for the glory of the Lord God. And this is a thing a lot of Christians understand that our our fruit, our patients are kindness is for the glory of God. It's because we want to live for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And that is the fruit you can have true fruit and false fruit true fruit is Christ centered, God centered and is for the glory of God, and it is depend upon the work of Christ, false fruit imitates true fruit, but it ultimately is not glorifying God. There's a difference because the goal of them is completely different is not to say an atheist can can't be honest, certainly could be honest but doesn't glorify God is not sanctified to the said shed blood of Christ.
When a Christian is on its is PSO because he's honoring the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is a good work with the atheists equals you don't love not lying is not a good work. It's ultimately sustained an unacceptable. The fruit of the spirit comes from God himself through the person who's a Christian, and that is where the fruit is and we know that we have that fruit. When her eyes are on Christ and were imitating Christ what Christ that's how we know is okay help the Lord bless you all my grace beyond another program powered by the Truth Network
