The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network mats like why is the founder and president of the Christian apologetics research ministry found online at time not born you have questions of our Bible doctrines is a max Y branches called in responding to your questions at 877207276 here's Matt slick everybody welcome to show rematch look natural requirements.

Today's date for the broadcasters is April 25, 2022. If you want to give me a call. We have five open line 77207226. Okay, let's see. So Friday I had a debate and I didn't prep for the debate at all. And the reason is because I forgot I had a debate so someone not Laura debate tonight you can have what I tried schedule. It was on the doctrine of the tribute Bible teach doctrine and so will your discussion with this guy and you know I are going over a lot of stuff before I understood. So let's let's versus oneness is what was it was a good discussion. I thought the opponent didn't present his position very well. I was biased okay but you know I think you heard debate watch the abuse in your feedback. I one thing that was interesting. I thought that my opponent said which floored me.

Will Jesus was not a man.

He was one of those things you just you just stop it on your staring at what what you would let a man know it was not so quick so you tell me. Jesus was not a man is right to be live.

Yes you breathe. Yes, but he wasn't a man. He was always alive you breathing that's correct, you know it you like okay what you do with that. I'll get silenced very off, but sometimes there's just things were you just stare into the air.

What you do with that so well.

I quoted a verse of the first of the two fall 2011 mediator between the man and got Amanda man Christ Jesus. I said so there is a medical notice what it says is that Christ is said going… Christ Jesus the man gets go see says Christ. Yes, it also says Jesus is the Christ that was made was incredible just like the reason it was so bad I should look this crisis just means the anointing Jesus is the name of the man and now it's Christ who is the man not Jesus just okay okay okay so sometimes you know if the if you think about it people's logic is just so mainly happened that is given over to just lame lame city slicker hear you kidding me how do you come up with that and so I have actually never think about. I have on karmic dictionary. We call this lectionary and sold you to glorify is to use big words citations in order to make things on clear annihilation of the state of willing ignorance in the face of truth on the fun words are made up then certification the practice of feeling to think clearly.

With increased cerebral confusion while attempting to put down what you really understand see God's invitation, the repeated practice of using useless statements and attempt to avoid challenging me to get to the surgeon. Let's see flabbergast your irritate out you say something that flabbergast some while also irritating that that's flabbergast re-over pronounced flabbergast re-already ate and then the two holistic five to make something heretical to distort the truth so much that becomes a false teacher got you just his father made up his work and you will amplify the practice of speaking about nothing. Switching topics and not focusing in order to sound calm please think anything will amplify. Let's see see solidification of the solidification of the process by which a person is converted to Matt slick's theology and a desire to attack heresy so I got a kick in that stubborn eyes of stabilization to refuse to learn the corrected juxtaposition due to the idolatrous fixation I actually countered that on Saturday I was talking to somebody who was an anti-reform rabid anti-reform guy and I said no irresistible grace is not that you can't resist God's graciousness and things like that. It's that at the point of regeneration, neck regeneration, that at that point you can't resist God's grace. The grace of regeneration and it took 14 so I think you repeat what I said she wouldn't recognize it.

What is good enough is going on and out anyway so there's a bunch of things like that. Call this lectionary, reports left ice lectionary get some more stupid words of your made up for fun, man. I enjoyed it. I need you to hear that. It was fun.

Let's just jump on the line to schedule more from North Carolina more welcome or more guest. Oh well, your it is that your name amore noticed a more okay because it was amore I was going to ask you what your favorite fish amore with that had this lectionary gets a lot of stupid stuff in there.

Yeah I will call you and I'm going to roll by faith alone may make that thing in the formation that made one thing, winding five and that they were all that I it's it's simple.

They don't use the Scripture is the final authority.

Simple as that. If the Scripture was the final authority they would subject everything to the Scripture and then they wouldn't be praying to Mary wouldn't believe in these Mary apparitions. They wouldn't believe in some papacy. They wouldn't believe in the authority of priests and Eucharist stuff they would only believe it only believe in the Scriptures, and not a tradition. Also met why have so many false doctrines simple and no they don't come down to this.

They do not hold the Scriptures as the final authority they hold their own church is equal to Scripture and the church. The Catholic Church interpret Scripture. So the church is the final authority and that's it.

So, in that they are idolatrous because idolatry is giving idolatry is given to the created saying which belongs to God is getting getting the Scriptures which from God is the final authority they're doing it for me man tradition are idolaters, you can find by all you and I will use the same Bible.

But what I do with Catholic. Sometimes I'm talking to them having discussions after half hour to an hour of going back and forth. I say show me Scriptures on the Scripture. No single church father say and hope so-and-so says, and after a while, but I'll do is I'll actually ask, say, could you do me a favor and could you look under your feet and ankles when you talk about this on your feet. She was under your feet and they'll say well it's the rug. All I thought the Bible would be at your feet. I try and get them to see that their spirit trampling the word of God under their feet in order to make their doctrines true. In fact, when I was having a discussion on discord on Saturday for our discussion. Teaching biblical theology and I went to Scripture and I mean I really went through Scripture and were Catholics in nursing. That's a heretic and they were to the church fathers don't teach this is the same thing. They don't look at God's word. They look it's another shoot ship Shepherd and that's what you don't believe the word I is great Joe McCarthy getting it up you and I like you, I think about doing you wait days and going on and you are one of the ones that you will that's high praise and thank you and by God's grace member to do what I do and not get thank you very much. We need those prayers appreciated Michael Gubler right school right okay so we have lines going to give me a call 877-207-2276 is good to plunk from the Utah welcoming on the year.

I'm doing okay. How are you and I is you hold on Blanco. Sorry we didn't break and I just we just got a little break so okay you hold on continue after the break. Folks, we have virtual call 877-207-2276 Matt slick.

Why 770776 is welcome back to the show back up.

Welcome you still there okay alright so you married drug and alcohol problem that's increasing right now, get a divorce. You want to divorce. For what reason I just what what what she/he left.

Okay okay what you need to do is you need to go to the elders of your church each have a sit down with them.

I need to keep a record of everything you're doing. You have a journal you to see can't lose this journal.

You just put dates on this date I talk to someone.

So about this issue.

And even if you say no match look on the radio know what he recommended I go to the elders of the church on this date.

I went to the elders of the church. I asked him for meeting.

You know on this date.

We had a meeting in the meeting I talked about this and you you write things out like this is a reason I'll tell you why in a minute. You need to also put a history of the things that you've done in order to work with your husband and try and reconcile and you need to also list the problems best date you got to say but your remembrance, this is it because this can become a legal document.

One of the reasons I'm telling you to do this is you need to be involved with the elders because the elders need to take over this issue. Not me. They need to take it over. If he's committed adultery. You have grounds for divorce this tease be written down but this document will be can become legal legal document that can be used in the divorce court if needed, but also for later on.

Should you ever want to get married again you have documentation along with the elders and the whole bit that you went through to sought reconciliation, but at some point the recommended they recommended. It's okay to get a divorce because of of XYZ. That's what you need to do that okay okay so that the biblical grounds for divorce is abandonment and adultery. So if he's done either one or both you have grounds for divorce, not the obligation of divorce.

So at this point you have that freedom to be able to do that if he's done that if you however have forgiven him, and you've reconciled and then you want to go back on it is a problem because you've already forgiven if you is unrepentant to keep doing it. You have grounds of divorce, of course, but I'm trying to tell you you need to keep this journal need to do this because if you ever have to go to before any other elders you ever want to get married again. Let's say to God by his great mercy grants you a good guy and he's a godly man and this is what you been divorced. Yes, what's the occasion of the divorce I knew about this document or this booklet or whatever is a look here is you have copies of this thing and that's why would Satan do which online and where you can keep it. You know they have different online storage things you printed up and you have a couple copies on the house that kind of a think where if he ever needed five years you got this document, it will be a real help for you. It also documents with the issue is, and the elders need to if they can write it on them not their own, or they sign it or whatever it is, so that it's all above board called biblical okay I'm trying to watch out for you okay 70×775 seven good then you need to say is 70×7.

But there comes a point when you're free to divorce because he has broken his covenant and continues to break it you sought reconciliation you've sought it on your own. You sought it with the help of the elders and if they recommend. Okay, it's time to get a divorce and fine okay then you keep the documentation okay so you know, just so you know God issued the writ of divorce against Israel. Divorce is not automatically a sin.

I know a lot of people think it is. But it's not okay wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait you said ex-husband you married before this wait wait wait wait wait wait is are you married to him right now yes or no.

Are you married from right now. Are you divorced Blanca Blanca Blanca. I know I'm asking a question are you legally divorced? I okay okay okay I'm trying to find out something very specific. You need to find out if you divorced legally. You need to find this out.

If you're the elders gave you papers, that's his papers. I don't know those papers are signed and it doesn't have to be filed.

What's the legality you need to find out because if you're not Blanco. You need to find out you talk to these elders you need to get this set situated. Furthermore, if it's such that you are not divorce right now you have no business and no right to date anybody else either. Okay this this is important. You gotta find out just because you sign something and sign it on your desk, so to speak, doesn't mean that it's all legal papers that you find out cannot okay Blanco you need to make sure your legally divorced okay right okay let me know okay unless you want to give me a call.

All you do is dial 87776. Be right back after these messages, Matt slick, why call 77077. Welcome back to open lines 877272276. Let's see if Jim from North Carolina still near Jim welcoming Matt call and I can about this occurring in our community at an elementary school targeting first sixth-graders and called the botanic Temple after school Satan club and are following locations or schools where they have another group called the Child evangelism Fellowship wherever they have good news clubs and I believe the point of it is either to offset against Christianity or to have people become so enraged that they end up taking the Christian oriented clubs out of the schools altogether.

How good he thought mama and no I don't want to start rambling because it will start going do you have a question.

Well, that this is not you have a question, this is something worth discussing.

I'm with you. The door opened my why you should get ready retire. She's not at the school.

She's in the hospital. She said that she would not walk into a school that had to take place at the school called dental door that when opened with them at school that she could not hear the location. The principal said just an opinion letter times Christians will resign from something because in protest and because are Christianizing resign and the Christian presence is now gone and is filled by an I've always had a problem with that. I think Christians need to stay in the fight and fight not in every single instance you make your own choice, no there's always variables that I think we Christians need to say okay let's just use this as a hypothetical message knew I should or shouldn't do anything are distinct hypothetically were looked out on some of the hypothetical anymore.

There's a group that does Satanism and others, a Christian group. Now Satanism will ultimately fall on its own with her trying to do is counter the biblical gospel. If the biblical gospel is present, then the darkness also will work against it.

So what you have to do as a Christian is you get your people and start praying against them and you can pray implication and an imprecation is a prayer of destruction and harm upon them. They are yes like the Psalms, imprecatory Psalms, you cannot resolve 80 to 82. For example, the precatory Psalm. The less you will die like men you know and if it is a response I have on Carmen precatory Psalms list in the mouth.

There's comments like God will wipe them out so you know we should pray Lord, we pray for their salvation or conversion but Lord, aside from that, take care of them and you have people pray that still the signal to trigger chicas upon your blog locations or for Jesus to lay down to nothing.

No freight. I would pray imprecation upon and I would pray also for the retiring, so she but there's a lot of community and our church people that I know that this club is saying population is not our goal, they were not converting children to Satanism after school Satan." All free inquiry and rationalism. The scientific basis of which we know what we know about the world around us and continue because I know what you're talking about familiar with this this the first that you guys have got to get to a community need to be praying yet that several people plan and a group of people praying on a regular basis to get the covenant commit to doing this on a regular basis. That's one thing. The other thing that needs to be done is you have to equip the Christians there and when the atheist say what you say. The rational stuff. Let me tell you they are not rational. I would love to debate a debate with them than what about rationality cleaner clocks not on second grade.

I'm sick they don't have an ultimate standard rationality from which they can then make their statements that cannot defend those statements as being true everything that is Scripture and things like that so you can defeat that by simply equipping the believers you need to do the good news club or similar type a lot about the way I look at the statement of faith of the good news club organizers for that and it is good statement of faith look at it closely, salvation by faith faith alone deftly and so what they're doing to their targets group grade the people that are supporting that then need to step up and be prepared to call their targeting first-graders to sixth-graders who have not have the ability to push back with her classmates who may end up being somehow interesting history will if we were off the air. I would give you some other suggestion was, if we were austere we could have some other discussion but as far as what you do you have to be praying and you can't quit. The Christians can't resign and go away take their ball and go home because some didn't work out the way they want. This is the way of the devil is the way of evil.

The Christians either rise up within the situation and the need to equip the Christians. They just need to pray and ask God to open up doors.

That's what needs to happen okay well I'll do it without her community and speak with them about this and get our church prayer said school class, we pray. On Sunday morning and he's regularly just not the point.

I will repeat attend a public process. While that yes like I got you, but if you want to be glad to have a phone meeting with some of the parents and we discussed these things and strategize in the whole bit. And the commitment of prayer needs to become command not only for salvation but offer imprecation also in any need to equip the car via the children that are there. Parents need to involved. Unfortunately, what happens is a lot of times parents think that the clergy was to cover everything. They just go on Sunday mornings. Hi there Don now got equip their Christian children, and there's ways to do that and you don't have to teach them about Satanism that might become curious, just find out where the rat was going on and you prepare them and then you can see if you can have meetings on campus you can see if what Cimino said after school yet pastors going in and teach and people can start saying what about this other club perfect example to say this is who would look how bad it you go to the Scripture. This is what he does and they try to make it look good. Are you kidding me makes a great opportunity to grade 2. Okay, enough more about what the like. Typically ask questions for the same club. That means I'm giving out information that you really don't want to go over there ways. More about. I'm quite familiar with affiliate links and the like. Send them for both the innovation and the organization which the following to try to get kicked out of the schools and 70 amble about if you look at the sample that Apple uses. It looks like what I is damaged compared to the other eye looks like maybe an arm is withered. Yes, because it's a symbol of the antichrist African in the Old Testament, which exactly the exact verse, but the antichrist will have a withered. I and the withered are and he will, his desire will not be for women not I written a letter that antichrist on account of hot okay look, contact me. Okay, if you need help.

You know after the show whenever you need.

You know, people want to get parents want to get together when we do homecoming the phone call in on speakerphone.

Let's talk okay thank you very much serious. I'm not kidding, I found out that you have righteous indignation now is time, I would recommend you do is get an outline and write down the things that you need to do.

In fact, I need to write an article on this.

What could be done other colors.

I'm sure so don't go on to we do try to calm down and get a live chat and enjoy most eloquent is Vicki and others relate the eloquent here. She says with a bird.

She raised since Jesus is with Hawks folks up is an inside joke. Baltimore is talking. I think there will go into an email first with the people school with her going to pastors you got that right man okay they folks to blindly write back after these messages, you may call the right back Matt slick. Why call 770776 and welcome back to the show list of say from Texas was a welcome you on the air, but no, sorry for the long wait but quite a busy day. We got go apartment thing about the war relate very cool you going to warm you mean by saying that about that will be now you can lose your salvation. This route, John 10 2728 John 637 through 41st John 219, etc. it's about Revelation 3 is believed to see you and just just so you know I've been there have been lunacy in the room with the scouts awesome just to brag, so it's not talking here about this issue because about losing your salvation. It's to the church to a group of people in there couldn't remove the candlestick there their anointing as a group will be removed. There was still were streams there that were hot Springs and that were cold and sometimes would mingle and work good for either one and so the idea is, is look own up and live according to what you post a live if you don't win and removed the lampstand and stop there's a sense of what you do is buy gold refined by fire become white garments because you're weak because you are lukewarm, not standing for the Lord make that choice. Do it.

That's what he saying okay okay with individual holiday card will ultimately yes because it's individuals who end up getting saved but is talking to the church at Laodicea.

You might think the word legacy.

I think of you walking down the main street and the pillars in the ruins and everything that's right there.

Laodicea and I can see the can still remember the outlines in the other stones of the homes the people lived and that they were exited you and it was a big area walked over and Plexiglas. He could look down into so it was an actual community of all kinds of people, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people and so we sing is good luck.

You need to Laodicea.

It's the church of that group, it's that people there now know that the church could have lukewarm people, hot people and cold people can have people who are not believers in it as a church as a whole to consider saved. So Paul will often write John will to in the context of unbelievers and believers mixed. So how you can address it. You better get it together. You better repent, you better make sure you're in Christ. You can lose association doesn't say that saying okay right. I like to know what area you need a lot bird who thousand eight. If you don't I get in a way they don't work out when others suggested that client denied that night have the right, what time are you with multiple writing about the moderator pretty good. I just a lot concerts I can speak and say but I do know someone who speak Spanish very well Carlos you soon about Akia and help with little without international event. In this subject. Okay you all do is just email Carlos into the car and that'll work in one of the things I've been thinking about is just spinning two months with him. I like to have him come here but you can't and spent too much with me. So I get fluent, fluent in Spanish. I can learn the theological terms and how to sail kind of stuff, but Jessica get in there and teach in Spanish, which is something I want to do but nevertheless there a lot of competent people who speak Spanish you speak Spanish obviously and learn these things easily for teaching Carlos can do it to you hear what that girl you know about me. A peak summer associate you. I hear the way I ran like a table that's good. I feel so useful to have them contact Carlos. Carlos is he's great.

He's he's awesome. I was invited to you years ago with him.

He and and I was speaking in English.

It interpreted my Spanish is I'm 70% there. I think 6070%. Not quite an ongoing 90.the good part. Are you and get it.

You may get you got it on the sand.

You know is that I listen the Carlos T and I can understand most of what he was saying and and Mike Dudek diagnosis stuff so he's a great guy and a good contact and also as a guy in Los Angeles.

He's a cop friend of mine, and he's fluent in both languages. He teaches theology to put in contact with him. Okay, I will go and that this inflicts on the rug and if you put all you tonsils you'll get what you okay okay but I have a good one. God bless our cool all right. Let's try Norman from North Carolina 34 minutes long, telling his new record. Still, there are you orientating the phone call okay you all my questions about 11 years ago challenging that that the virgin birth actually originated in Greek mythology, and I heard at the time that we follow whatever I don't have an answer to an object I forgot about it on renewing your mind.

You are full program recently. Not too long ago and I remember him saying that that has been brought up really be computed in his biological life. All you get your take on what the proper response to that reference really like you reference material not so much familiar with. However, I'd recommend you do is look up stuff like astrology. Believe it or not there's other books written that deal with the issue of the gospel in the stars written from a Jewish perspective way before the time of Christ, and it's a Jewish astrological system where the 12 zodiac's actually present the gospel and then it was secularized and modernized and moved away from it there so it just a weird kind of a thing – talk about of virgin birth from the ancient Jewish system of how they analyzed the stars Virgo virgin. It comes from this old Jewish system got inculcated, and moved into Christian thought and Greek thought from before the time of Greek thought that's what I'm saying that okay when the mistakes that they'll make is to say that if it came before. Therefore, what came after it is what the borrowed the Greek thought also had many gods but if you go to ancient ancient Chinese stuff.

Look up ancient Chinese characters gospel is look up ancient Chinese characters gospel or Christianity. You'll see lots of sites that talk about ancient Chinese symbol for the next 6000 year is like 4003 thought of before.

Greek theology, and it talks of monotheism. The symbol for sin is a tree with a snake in it the symbol for boat is a mouth with a number eight and about eight mouth speaks. Souls people Noah's Ark.

It goes on like this. Justification is something up do with the something broken over person in any way you can see, so that the point is that these things are verifiable from way before Greek theology.

Second, let's just say there is a connection that Greeks did teach a virgin birth as well as Christianity. So this me when working the other.

Furthermore, if you go to Isaiah 714 and are units as a virtual being with child when they translated the word Alma into the Septuagint at 2050 BC they use the Greek word Parthenon which means virgin. The Jews understood that 600 BC. That's before Greek theology also.

Okay I will. But I understand. I so there's the there's evidence, right. There's all kind of stuff you can use and plus it opens up doors for other conversations with the gospel in the stars. It sounds weird but it's actually there's actually documented that the Jews actually had this in there there rut there's astrology is that astronomy is actually it would they look at. They saw these patterns because the star show the glory of God, and they looked and they cite this is what this is, in his book settlement in his books out on the ancient Chinese system stuff as well, saying that Jewish zodiac thought yes yes yes real you can get the book the gospel in the start by Joseph Sease, SEI, SSI, Thanksgiving, and a chat. There's I need to do is one thing to do with the research project. I want to do a collect information you provided. I just got I'm swamped doing NAR stuff, but there's plenty of evidence to counter that those claims well right well let's see if we were to go and say you know what are the dates of Greek culture. Ancient Greek culture to see transient free culture right, then the no 776 BC is one of the thick undiluted numbers when it comes up.

So that's renal Isaiah was written around 600 BC immediately. It's how far was the Greek culture was it extending over there to Israel already has been in contact so you yeah the people who say these things don't do their homework, they don't telling right that's right the first 776 BC homers Iliad 750 BC's about 100 years before so you think of some others that it was therefore borrowed the can ask him show me how it was borrowed and show me where it was show me and then you want to trap him with the issue of you and traveled oh so what comes before means of it difficult follow to the say yes then you got them in you without the stuff on the Jewish astrology astronomy and of the ancient Chinese culture the symbols to. I'm sorry from your own wording.

Now, that means the Greek borrowed from them.

The virgin birth is in okay okay RMM in the quick and slick takes a lot of work okay but okay got blessed. No Alberto a buddy for sorry right time in typhoid for so long collect tomorrow. Okay, there's the music folks, we are at a time of the Lord bless you and by his graceful back on her tomorrow. I hope you enjoy the show is great. Another program powered by the Truth Network
