My real name is Matt slick it's not a radio name and if you want to give me a call.
All you have to do is dial 877-207-2276. We discussed the Bible, politics, evolution, atheism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian science unity behind Islam with all his miss long as you else I say UFOs with all kinds of stuff and I love discussing theology, logic, evidence for Christ and things like that.
I do patriot video series where a distant one is about a half-hour ago.
I'm going to series on apologetic site when I doing to fill and develop notes. I have notes in all kind of stuff. My apologetics outline things. 65 pages that 65 pages of notes and my one on Roman Catholicism is 105. I think reformed theology is like about hundred and doing things on science and evolution. That's around 30 or 40 pages on the site is to outlines and some teaching through my outline on apologetics on my patriot on patron/Matt slick checked it out if you want to help out. If you do great. If you don't that's fine too. All right, having said all that, when we just jump on on the calls and this gets her Calvin from Raleigh North Carolina counted welcome around here in my might? I know that in the Bible with the court was good. I went right. But not tonight.
Also angry when people would buy the old out house though you broke up everything but what you doesn't know any place in Scripture says that Jesus last or was was particular joyful now something is back, my mind comes up about the issue of of a revelation of wandering the issue of rejoicing.
Let's see, because rejoicing with those who rejoice Romans.
But to my revelation, something the back of my head says or something about that. Now we know the people on the earth will rejoice and also write so rejoice, O heavens. That's poetry rejoice over her will have a new Saints apostles and prophets.
This rejoice and be glad yeah that's really interesting and you know what lately got me thinking because lately we have been doing is working on an attack on Unitarianism single person godhood problems and the lack of the ability to show full personhood as I focus on the issue of love. God's love for John 48 and being able to example I would love is an attribution of personhood now here's a question though if from that's the case, does God does he laugh in the Trinitarian communion does he have joy in that he does and so I think that might also be a necessary qualification for personhood since her main image of God. Genesis 126 so not exactly sure how to answer the question got me thinking. Thinking out loud while kind of thinking through it, but this could be something that maybe someone knows something I don't know.
Maybe that will reverse right in the chat text will you call me and say hey what about this verse but I thought Signet okay by now I hear something though. I just did think of something, though, because marriage is a time of joy and there's going to be a marriage feast of the Lamb marriage of the Lamb and in Revelation 19 talks about this so maybe in that there would be the implication of of the joy of the Lord. In that sense.
Maybe okay now I'm thinking aloud got me wondering about so I don't see any instances of joy of the who do this. This is Nehemiah 810 then he said go eat of the fat drink of the sweet, sweet yet sweet, and send portions to him was nothing prepared for this day is holy or pure Lord. Do not be grieved for the joy of the Lord is your strength. The joy of the Lord is that mean the Lord's joy with the joy and knowing God so now I'm I'm looking while talking and then we have look at this. This is interesting for settlement 15 you also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit in my big one versus .169 got me thinking about a man at the start of something and research on them as well. Right back about okay God bless buddy hey folks pharmacological to give me a call 877-207-2276 Rudolph Marlett Raleigh, North Carolina.
Welcome around here yet here I you have talking about. I think the poem you said and have led you to give you an expert right now is Mrs. as his home to for uses and heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. So that's the last yeah it's a it's a personification of God's scornful laughing and mocking kind of a sense at them. Yeah, I think my do an article on this is interesting question okay I'm not quite about you there radio and you know anything about JD Greer.
But God they fit you don't know what you talking I got a look at J. D. And GREER led nameplate.
He church okay yes on the website is the site is in his 40s, pastor, author, theologian, Summit church All right, so what you questioning I heard that you negative about homosexuality when it came to Alicia my actual church but I don't knowing waiting for an understanding he can properly hopefully he condemns homosexuality as a 7% how to do that right now. I didn't that found that like it that we should know not not really like written election and thanks, Victor bout to well it's a sense, since you're not sure, and since were talking about a person publicly and you're not sure if he did or did not get to be careful that were not spreading something that's not true. So tell you what you do go research what you think you said that, and then contact me at info would conduct organ safe. Here is where it is and then you can demonstrate that because we want to make sure we don't say. I thought I heard this I wasn't sure and say something publicly about somebody and inadvertently start a rumor to be careful that called you and biting you would. I don't well you know I can bluff my way through a few things but the source wisdom goes in bluff my way through that. But I tell you what's what you should do is is research and send me the research because I have a section I've been working on lately on karma called preachers and teachers and I just released with an anti-Stanley and I'm working on another person. Right now, and will be releasing information suggesting all the good the bad with watch out for the good person in a moment.
Not all just look for bad people.
Cholo stating the flaming heretic, but there are a lot of good preachers out there to so people asked me and I generally will grease the wheel that squeak so they'll say hey the sky got a problem and then they some information I do analysis are usually the second try to find heresies in people's lives and exposing that's not the goal. The goals to be informative, both good and bad so you know if you find some good stuff about them and other things sent to me and I can check it out. Maybe try thing is good.
Okay this got great all right you call info. What email@example.com okay and when I always look for sure. I'm looking on his website right now looking for statement of faith which I haven't found them looking for staff, which I haven't found the reason I want to do.
The statement of faith is because I will make sure that it's the jet and the staff. I want nothing with the pastors and elders was if they do, then I'd say stay with the church but I do know he does or doesn't just checking this morning from the figured out so you know, it looks pretty good so far. Okay thank you.
Right regardless of our all right hey folks through the lines wanted to be called before the break. 877-207-2276 Danny from Charlotte, North Carolina Denny, welcome around here. I let out a back button about Christian birth control.
Okay, wife not good at art are for current career career the current year and back on her uterus almost ruptured and you want me to get out effectively and out the one that you had any any kind of you know Scripture reference for getting want or not getting what the Bible doesn't say to or not to just just is not part of the Christian biblical conversation but I can do this and keep this on the stretches just a little bit, but you would first print in chapter 7 and in there. It talks about not getting married so they will think that means Paul says don't get married people don't understand he says in this present distress. That's what he's talking about in verse 26 I think it's good, in view of the present distress that it is good for men to remain as he is not get married. There's a persecution going on.
So what he saying there in the loosest sense here is don't get married and have kids in the situation and that's not birth control, but it is in a very loose sense. All right, now some people say birth control is sinful. I do not agree with that at all. We have break coming up so we'll see how far you get into this so I have also been fixed, so to speak. And the reason is because my wife's next pregnancy publicly killed her. She has is for real. She has a very rare problem suffering more and more you break those little more and why one is a hold on a go to the right that Jeff is vestiges three of the line to call 70 707225077720. Let's get back online with Danny still there. Alright so as I was saying in a real situation. My wife has a very very rare very serious condition and should for pregnancies for births. We lost one after birth. We should miscarriage out also so if I did not take care of my underthings so to speak. She probably could complete absence or to guide and incidentally this is this it, because it is generically so went there in the procedure, the anesthesia only worked on one side and I finished it without anesthesia and the reason it was when the shock and passed out.
But Eric. The reason is because she was too incredible pain giving birth and I needed to stay there and finish to protect her and so it's a protection thing you're protecting your wife in this way and it's a good thing.
And here's another scenario… Say that to the branded administration declares war and all the Christians particular people like myself and for some reason because you talk to me know you and I are in a concentration camp. Okay reeducation camp will you would want have children in there and I would you not.
So there are times in its strategic to have children for the glory of God. I would have them and to but it was gonna cost you your life with her health.
Then take preventive measures so she's not injured. I doubt that I thank you very familiar with it. That's right we get a look at biblical in every word, but you know that you expect out of a gray area right now. The Roman Catholics will tell you it's mortal sin, not will give you is if you take any contraceptive looks like, come on, you know, if you wife is pregnant good killer that would eat lots you not being smart about it.
So come on and habits are okay guys, I thank you for your work by God's grace. All right, Jenny got blessed.
Okay. All right. Hey folks are going to McAuliffe orchid lines 877-207-2276. Give me a call to McAuliffe's talk to Alberto from Georgia Albert welcome back link to my question that what they agree not myself all care of my quad order to determine that I'm actually a child of God you don't determine if you're truly telling God what you do you determine that by your faith and trust in Lord Jesus Christ is not based on what you do what you do is based are the result of the regenerative work in you, the fact that you do good works and want to do good works in the name of Jesus Christ, but not for salvation because it's a fruit, then that is a sign of regeneration and indwelling of God, but you don't do in any way shape or form any works or to demonstrate to God, you're a Christian, or to keep yourself writer like that so to pick up your cross daily is different for different people. That's why since pick up your cross and follow after will for me that might be different than you not in the Bible a lot and debating teaching a lot so you spend time in the word. I do automatically well maybe for you.
You don't do that and so denying pick up your cross after him might revolve something different and people are different so you don't have to worry about any specific comparative thing or here's the five things that you do or don't do you deny yourself in your own selfishness your own sinfulness and you follow the Lord Jesus Christ and be willing to go to the cross with him if need be. That's what's going okay. Thank you alright man you called many times now, you certainly selectively were to meet in a word about your own salvation.
Now are you going on on on the other about the your years.
My great faith, not that bad because I didn't know that I got the urge but not a lot. When I that I am bothered by gender, purity of the Catholic church pastor Tony thought that everything and I let my mouth find out what my schedule secured heresy.
Jesus taught in John 637 through 40.
And it's a heresy to say you keep your salvation by being good or abiding by the law or not doing bad things we noticed that for you, buddy. All right, Alberto allows good number.
Thank you. All right, couple Lila Bayless go phones with Mary from you.
We just lost follow from the birth control stuff, you know, ladies, if you'd like to follow talk about that. Please do love to talk about that from the perspective of women in that situation, but it like to hear that. All right, let's get to Emory from Charlotte, North Carolina, Emory. Welcome around here all right hanging in there for you but what about about failed wives tales gossip and gossip things not found.
In fact and truth.
Just avoid them. There is oral avoid a support avoid wives tales. Yes, all right to just avoid avoid them.
Note the nice thing I'm not saying that some things that are these old wisdom sayings aren't good, some of them are generally speaking, wives tales are just statements or beliefs or superstitions or things like that folklore so you don't have to worry about right. You have okay I got out the way go around million dollars or my going that that's a solution. Junk select workflows, your house, your unit means when a bird flies run your house.
It means a bird was flying around your house needs. It's good to have this could happen.
I didn't stay all Cosco is birds flying around so it's a big building doors open thought they finance what happens when there's centipedes in your house or spiders in your house or ants in your house. Does that mean in all that centipede enters your house is 100 legs under centipedes, so sent to hundred. That means little hundred years old wives tale make it a good make it up so just don't put any credence and that put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ not in wives tailed hills like this all of bird flu in your window be to die soon.
It's just stupidity. It is okay you do have your jockeys were good will hold by God's grace, but excellent live all right, all right.

You can join in lot of fun. All right, it's good to Russell from Asheboro, North Carolina. Welcome you are a mere man that I was still listening to us because you're smart and intelligent and good is a good take a blog DVD is how we got King James Bob and they say it in the daily day-to-day King James didn't want any Catholics oriented Puritans that were hollering.
Let's go to America that was too great. He didn't own on the board or anything today with the translation I was wanted back feel like I met with Violet A. Puritans cannot do you know anything about why he felt that way I don't know if he did it in that I just haven't heard that so I can say this true or not true. I think displaying a nice being innovative – talk to David E all K well yeah I know that's what it is. I mean I could, I could see the hats because the Catholic Church is so stinking bad and a lot of the Protestants were leaving for America on the number of Calvinists trying to escape religious persecution, but also because they want to establish a Christian nation here and so I can sign up. You know, I could see that coming from there the state religion is a relationship with Christ.
State religion stuff and you and Natalie on think about going America is a good thing. You know, I don't know that's news to me. Yeah you know your own. There was the Latin Vulgate create in either was that I have in all of the bishops Bible and make my ride to bishops Bible is from 1568 and let's see the Vulgate. I'm still researching that literally been working on an article going through the various manuscript trees. A codex alexandrite aesthetic that can this semiotic is reset Texas receptors and why the King James lights with peoples of the King James is the best one.
But it's not amplitude P 40 5P 46 people to show that those are the priority in developing a table I'm looking at it.
I just happen to have it open while you're talking about this. There's bishops Bible in 1568 and the Coverdell bio Bible 1535 Geneva Bible 1560. So these are the Baptist receptors developed by the restless but you know I don't know what the King James guy I just that's news to me.
Maybe you felt Luke is listening. The claimant that he knows you did a lot of research on King James. You might know: monomeric and answer the question. Look at a little interesting.
You know that it came James was not English and Scottish that really going to make God a knife out each other.
S. In that and of course you know that you know know about that Irish name like spying paychecks. I drank that Canada has now they knit with. I don't know about all that but to request generally exactly the question of the Leslie to callers like new move along with the little anyway, I appreciate it and that this morning and they need to know doing what you doing now let me make it. I can but appreciate event. Thanks and have a life okay right now we have to open lines 877-207-2276 Pastor Brett from Boston, Buffalo, New York. Welcome you on the air. A lame thanks man thanks for taking the call watching your program for quite some time.
I know that the Lord called me to an online counseling program thankful thankful for your program because that you've been good example of the ongoing operates a lot yet and Lord blessed Lord I think that guide and regulate cyclic clearing there met with and I have I have a question. I have my theology and and you know but I'm always open to Laura Niemi the greatest teacher is the one that can always be taught and I'll never forget those words divine decree.
Okay, you hear it from popular theologians of today. Specifically, Dr. James lights and not II really wanted to challenge him lovingly about that but you are your thoughts on the divine decree. First, knowing that I am, I lean more towards the permissive will of God as opposed to God doing that. No James Lai would not say no, no James you he would not say that that God does evil. I might be missing a misinterpreting how my I just recently heard them talking about this on another coach talked about it quite often. And if there's a quote seriously, there's a quote you got where he says God performs evil. I want to hear it and all contact, no, no, no, I don't know why I've never heard him say that know this is a God in any way shape or form to say bad about James. No, not at all my night just my simple question. Is that what happens is with this doctrine of the divine decree that I've heard and everything I've heard about it is that it allows young believers to think that God dollars dual bowl and that God is guilty of both. Then the question always is well. How can God guides fairly if even made me do evil.
He did make it did not sweep. This is where people need to study limited theology and this often comes up so there's the will of God. You've talked about the permissive will that also is related to the was called the prescriptive as well as a decree to the decree of will of God is the ultimate will B lights universe existed, the prescriptive will of God is.
Thou shalt not lie that he prescribes moral behavior for us permissive well is not allow you to live freely right. That's what initially will butter something else in the issue of causation because people make a mistake of thinking because God decrees something that he's forcing it. That's not the case. So we have bricks coming up that Obama talked about this will continue after the break to. But we have to understand three levels here ultimate proximate and efficient causation.
Okay okay okay ultimate proximate like approximate but it's not a product right with FA ultimate proximate and efficient. So you had understand something. This is this is where the solution lies so ultimate causation is God, by his own hand brought something to bear. So by his own his own creative hand.
He created the universe by his own creative hand. He did this now also he created the solar systems. He created the earth, the planets, the garden of Eden, as he did this because he's the one who directly did this, he puts the chair the your trees in the garden. He did this yet and gleefully chat with mine for years, yet, so it will work it down here. Adam and Eve freely chose to sin. God did not make them sin. They freely chose but God's will be call. He's the proximate cause that means he allowed certain circumstances to come to bear.
He created the the garden he created. The devil will then claim the devil, but he created Lucifer, who then rebelled of his own free will secure 3814.
It will build his own free will. Okay became rifle and God allowed him to enter into the garden, so this is what we call proximate work its proximate art next to the issue of Adam and Eve rebelling and sitting of her own free will, so God is the ultimate cause in the sense that everything exist because God made it.
He's the proximate cause of their sin, but is not efficient because of proximate cause means the things are in place the efficient cause is Adam freely chose of his own free will to eat the fruit he chose to rebel. God didn't make them do it. Adam chose to do in his own action. So he's the efficient cause of his own sin. God did not make him God is the ultimate proximate not efficient cause they go to break the hold on mostly right that Kathy's message is why call 7707 after Brett Patrick so what I like.
I'm I'm okay and I remain teachable I am preaching and teaching for over 31 years and you know why I have to be teachable because I'm I've been called Calvinist.
In times past I've been in all told that align one of those no reformed guys, you yell out my doctrine as you know, reformed, and, and I'm thankful for the truth of God's work. I did learn it.my testimony is similar to dad about Pastor Jeff Durbin, I didn't learn anything that I learned from anyone in particular until just about 10 years ago when I read my first reformed thoughts which was systematic theology wing root and I said that you know I and that there would stall my notes. Man, I'd swear you stole my notes. It was great, yet was out so you know I'm thankful my I listen to James White died in a recent debate he did with the young man working for Bill Craig William Ln., Craig list looks like looks like a baby James White strategies since red and he is no James White and Stratton were going back and forth, in and out, you know, James is really patient with the young man James good guy.
Yeah, I got people waiting as lined up so I still I do so I just want to ask you okay so do you then you you will agree that that God does not make people but that he allows it is part of the sovereign plan. Ephesians 111. He works all things after the counsel of his will, he is not the author of evil in that evil it doesn't exist. And then God directly creates it does not have the right, but the circumstance lunch allow its existence are God's work, he allows it to work right and so he is was called the proximate cause, not the efficient cause okay yet very well said thank you brother God – do you why I pray his blessing upon your ministry, and.yeah I'll be watching is always praying for a product like Matt, thank you very much sir. God bless brow I find on good call.
The schizophrenic ferments on a Frank welcome you and hear it on Frank is know is now Frank will give you five seconds I'll put you on hold and Frank okayed on hold. Let's go to Bob from Utah hey Bob welcome you on here I have a question for important note that the time for people to have word of Lord written upon their heart and it came from and verifying the people. Now that they have written upon the heart right. Having a large order in the final Carhart that you do and how did you know unabated that I did.
Well, a little bit more about about writing God's word on the heart yet to be careful to say it doesn't seem to be as important because the subjective experience of your saying that it might be the case.
But, nevertheless, to have the Lord written the word of God written your heart means that you know it you've memorized it. It's part of you it's on you and you that's what it means written on your heart. Okay, so how do you do that, read his word, memorize it.
Think about it, discuss it and teach it contemplate on it so that it is true that Colossians 4, five and six is nothing that speaks to me because it's a verse about being gentle to unbelievers. A lot of people don't know about it and it's a verse that written on my heart.
Conduct yourself with wisdom toward outsiders make the most of the opportunity that your speech always be with grace.
Season with salt to it that speaks to me it's on my heart. It's part of what I am, how I think that's what it means written on your heart. Okay, I like the memorized part that was good. Your memorizing is good.
I have a lot of scriptures memorize a lot of addresses members because it would do for living. In order to get the information out there in radio. This is good. You know to to for people memorize and they should have on their door off the Internet.
Working for the thick of Oregon docket paper on the front door so a lot of them are written on was also good to memorize is memorize the Scriptures and understand that so that you can turn to in your mind and your heart. Your memory quickly. Okay that's written you a sample right by right let's get to the Sweden person is Patrick from Texas Patrick will welcome you on here.
Welcome welcome brother, Matt, I have a question for you further appreciate you allowing the on air. I listen to your clubhouse speech yesterday and you were talking about Eric Aretha think I'm familiar with in divine complicity. The thing out now correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know if you proposed the theory that God had to experience love and fellowship in order to be the ultimate and fully understand that no no no no that that's a heresy that would mean then that is a deficiency in God was. He asked what she has to complete.
Like another experiment. Okay, right. That's why we can ask you if you are appealing to monism right there with no nihilism. Some false no no no Brian is not yet monism discusses the issue of counterfactual is a God knows all potentialities and then chooses a universe based on what he knows exhaustively about potential actions, possibly done by people in different circumstances.
This Masons writ reactionary bright but God's love by nature for Sean 48 in the in the intra-Trinitarian communion in the peer Curry sister doing of the members of the Godhead there is that continuing aspect of of love. There is no deficiency in that there is no necessity of God having to do something else or have something else be actualized in order for him to complete a part of his own essence. Okay okay Geico. Document that he had to experience the ultimate but thank you for clearing that up. Maybe I did. If I said those words that I misspoke youngest people misspell a lot… Came to you okay will get a letter creating that cleared up all right. Will God bless and all right now is get back to Frank from Utah. Frankly, there are I meant okay because we had a hold of the four off. We got yet written earth, and Mike and I think where he that you want at Gloria Christian read through the Bible and I don't see that where they're getting back ladder is not in yet is not there, it flatters ideas and just not there Genesis.
These are people who have an agenda that they impose upon the Scriptures and the good of the work mainly the word firmament Nokia in Hebrew and affirming resident dome that they say exist as a hardest thing generally, most of them say that in which the moon and stars and stuff are embedded.
Some say that the moon and the sun are underneath this dome and that itself puts it like a round disc. The earth is within distinguish 1112 for talks with the four corners of the earth as he looked as if 1-2-3 below bogus embracing test so we just jumped in there for doing tests on the equipment. Anyway, so the four corners okay so if they want to say the earth is round the say hey this is for corners. If there was to the four corners of the earth is the circle the earth go that they took her arbitrary what to do. Okay okay all year that been reading it well you could go to my websites on written article on what is the flat Earth theory and talk about problems like eclipses and the issue of the sun. Existing equidistant you to see it and then the parallax effect and other things. The flatter stuff is such a distraction, a waste of time and Christian shouldn't be involved with it. There just dear taking people away for the preaching and teaching the gospel for this. The stupidity back your neck.
God bless over this trip over to Jennifer from Mount airy North Carolina welcome your on the air, my friend will pay me. The fourth. Goodbye them and under that that making the time you and I will know I have all of them. Hey guys away letter that I was out there with you, I given you. Hugs without the Bible study Fellowship in Iraq through regulation 14 okay once in his angel with the trumpet release the four angels were bound at the great river Euphrates.
The four angels with the prepared for the hour, the day the month and year were released so that they would kill 1/3 of mankind.
Okay. Are any angles and or exactly. I don't know who they are, other than widths which revealed here that there are angels who do the bidding of God.
They are held in a place now with a can't do that in the units at the Euphrates River. I have, I believe that there actually angels at the Villa at the Euphrates River. It's important do to the issue where the garden of Eden is in the four angels for the prepared for the hour, the day the month and year were released.
This is prophetic in the killing third of mankind. So the preacher wrists would have a problem with this. I was 1/3 of mankind killed in the past, but given certain evil governments and and things with viruses and stuff. You never know, I do know this is makes people nervous that there are diseases that if they got out, decimate mankind and for some stupid reason, people are working with them the truth to see what they can do if these things get out and this is the Chinese virus of the covert thing from Lujan lab. It's obvious that they were manipulating stuff and that's a mild form. One guy who's an expert in this told me want to set their stuff there. If it got out now the world with with take centuries, centuries to recover. If people survived the other stuff in it was not for it again. That attracted you letter with leftist lack of morals but okay. I am right.
A thank you all right will you welcome okay talk you later okay. All right.
We are at a time. We don't have time to Gary from Utah on and green lot.
That's interesting and Matt on baptism by immersion.
All my love go back tomorrow and we'll talk about that family.
So I figure I believe it is ideal only that one. All right if okay right God's grace.
