The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network mats like why is the founder and president of apologetics and research what is found online at the time you have questions about Bible doctrine why Grimes is called responding to your questions and the match look going to listen online. We have finally got it fixed.
We had to give another YouTube account so you can check that out. There's a link on the calendar area think of working to fix that right Laura. You can nod it… Good good and so should be doing that and worse to be moving from account to account when needed. Not a big deal because we have we have the stalkers out there who don't like what I say on the air and then complained to the powers that be and are not allowed to have freedom of expression because it they call it this thing called disinformation what is disinformation what is the standard by which you have truth so that you can know what is not true. You see that something they never tell you why, because truth is not a thing and want to deal with. Which reminds me of rewriting my first novel of the influence and literally, I've been going through the issue of truth, the angel and the main character Mark and Maya my editing just finished a dialogue. The nature of truth is rests in the heart and mind of God and how do you know truth. Things like a nice discussion on this for readers later on so they can learn a little bit about some issues. My wife was editing through the first chapter, she says it's scary. She says it's not easy to read. She didn't mean that the style was a good man these demons and stuff that you have intensely said yeah my predicable women tell me they couldn't finish the novel because it was to intense for them. In some places, but it will all be releasing a probably about a month to go through all the edits and stuff. All right well enough that this would have five open lines of want to give me a call 87720722760.
Yesterday we talked about about the shooting at the elementary school in Texas and again purchase go out to them. My wife and I prayed for them and stuff them. No a lot of unbelievers are going to ask the question why didn't God stop it.
Where's God they complain where is God when bad things happen. We could ask where is God when the good things happen you see, they complain when something bad happens but they don't praise him when something good happens. So an atheist might mock and say to the Christian will you let your God, let this happen.
How could he possibly do that is over there in the stator standard on ability to judge God and a razor complaint when something really good happens. The economy gets better, or we see somebody save a bunch of lives. We don't hear the atheist say well I guess you your God could take credit for that county do that. They only argue one way at one point here's another point to ask the to what level do you think God ought to stop that. I think into question because they'll say to me well he should stop. For example, shooting school okay that's that's I can ask you why that's the right thing according to your thinking why it ought to be that God would not allow it. That's right if he's good he would not be on the benevolent they'll say the Bible is essays on the benevolent, whatever that means is okay, but let's just say that to him that this shooting is something he steps into stop. We don't even know if he already has intervened and stopped a whole bunch of them but you wouldn't know what you because if he's intervened, and countless other situations and stopped a lot of bad things from happening.
How would you know the only thing he could do was razor complaint.
Let's work with little how far should got gold and stuffing the question I asked the critics how far should he go where's the line that he should say okay on this allowing that I will then how would you know that's the right standard. So I've asked atheist before social in a case like this was met shooting right so he should stop that that's ready should stop okay. Should he stop a politician from lying affect thousands and thousands of people. If you stop that well yeah I guess he should okay should he stop for some man or woman from thinking something wrong, but no should stop them from thinking something wrong just doing something wrong will why because are you saying that God should allow one kind of evil and not another kind of evil thinking evils okay with doing evil is not how you know thinking evil is evil in itself, that that's done in the mind. What are you saying we should stop here, but not there. What's your criteria and in the cycle because of physical harm because atheists like to say oh that's what good is what reduces harm sold to five you would like. Reduces harm is less good with good fruit. What reduces harm to circle what justifies nothing except to say well is what people want all so now you're telling me that what people want becomes a universal standard of truth is that it argument a bit popular, and it was on and on and on in the critics if they will actually sit down and entertain a real conversation from will find out very quickly that they don't have a leg to stand. I'm not saying it's a good thing that this happened but I will say this knowing was needful and God permitted the permits all kinds of bad things to happen. The provincial kind good things to happen. We don't have the right to say this is how far God ought to go. This is how far we ought to leave let him go or stop as though they have some universal standard of goodness in their arrogance other thing is that when we fell refilling. Adam was 519 talks about this through his transgression.
We fell he represented us was an odd thing about that representation because in it is the technological manifestation of the true representation of Christ to us on the cross so Adam represented us and we died when he died, then, is it not the case that we have responsibility the same that he did because God said to Adam, tend the garden and he did and that he failed.
And now the curse is there and thorns and thistles in the sweat of the brow else's lives in the world and yet we're still cold to do that were still told to exercise with called the Dominion mandate Genesis 126 and 22 take dominion over the world, but redo it equitably and fairly alright so this brings up the issue of what we wanted to bring a called federal headship of representation. Adam represented us.
We were in, but it does not stop with him because each successive father represents his descendents. There is a sense of that. Biblically I give you the verses of Hebrews 77 through 10 for scripting 1522, Romans 518, etc. talks about this, but with in this is the freedom of responsibility, or should I say the responsibility of freedom because freedom has responsibility with it. And God has made us in his image, and whether the believers of the unbelievers want to accept all that goes with it. The fact is we have the representative quality of the people in us and our descendents and also representative quality God in her freedom.
How then are we exercising her freedom.
How much freedom should God stop in order to satisfy the critics, how much should he say pick up a stop here and if he has a thousand times and not once has any unbeliever critics said to the true living God, thank you for what you've stopped licking you don't believe in your trust in him they wouldn't know sooner arrogance. They assume that God only lets bad things happen. The foolishness and they don't understand that we have freedom and freedom brings responsibility.
And though we do not always act responsibly with the freedom that were given by God. We recognize this because we see failures see inequities send valiant death, we still know that we have the responsibility as Christians we know this act in a manner is pleasing God. So one of the reasons I believe that God allows evil to happen is because of our freedom that he allows us to exercise our freedom to let that freedom stand and be part of what we are and that is good and bad that come if you want God to intervene so much. You're saying lesson, our freedom, but this is the problem.
The critics want freedom from God. And then they complained to God and about God when things don't go as they think they should and they don't realize that when Adam and Eve were in the garden. If things got bad after they started thinking such things as paraphrase, I'll do it right in my own eyes all decide what is true all decide what responsibility I have with my freedom, when the eight when our ancient parents, Adam and Eve acted like atheists. It went bad. You see, atheism does not include God in the realm of explanatory power or of the ultimate reason for our existence or the foundation of moral what the atheists do is they negate God from all the things in that vacuum, but feels that back is pride and arrogance in their own subjective view of morality and they will then fill that void with what they think is right.
Homosexuality, LGBT Q abortion, racism, socialism, communism, all kind of thing to stand against the truth of God's nature is revealed. And when things go bad.
They complained to God and God says you don't listen to me you're getting what you want you getting what you deserve in the world that you have made in the world would you have kept me now from schools from politics from society from education from entertainment. In fact, they've insulted God demeaned God ridiculed God and then when the fruit of their poison is manifested in society. They then blame God complying and then what they want to do is restrict the rights of others to take care of the problem that they themselves cause they don't realize that freedom brings responsibility, not restriction freedom means that we are to act in a manner that is consistent with the will of God, not to be free, so to speak, to go murder and destroy with free to be responsible for God. The unbelievers want freedom without God we want freedom with God. The unbelievers want responsibility without the believers wanted with only true only at him, then he's at the center. Hey folks, there's the music was even calling 77207276 Van Slyke why call 77077 lines if you want to give me a call 877-207-2276 I would hear from you. Give me a call let's get on your with Chuck from North Carolina, Chuck welcome your on your buddy what's up Chuck. Thanks, Matt Matt, you know, that when I was a kid. I go duck cotton down. I never thought of bringing my gun to school, shoot somebody or some. It was insane know I had wanted to run throughout my work or in their error in the dark where the diagram landfill was a dugout land and my 22 and nothing was ever no way that I ever – shooting somebody that we do know the people back then you know you are very close to the same answer. But the thing is, the leftist don't realize that they're the ones who are in the secularist worldview have my dreams bad.
They're the ones who destroyed this world and are our culture and our country. And then I said, I feel bad Gonzalo my work guns bad 67 years ago they worked. Now if they had the same rights to same everything and all of a sudden now guns of the problem. No guns are the problem.
Now it's the people who were the problem, they ignore that and then they pass more laws to try and restrict the freedom of those who are abiding by those laws.
It is insane. The left has but a much brains as a couple of rocks rolling down the hill. Yeah yeah yeah vanity and out and I remember Griffin through a good Bible teacher, and that this 40 years ago when the Lord returned. There's going to be a man like posted on the recently who knows, you know that's not but if it was trying out Bible. I personally can't risk you don't know never deducted that from all God wrote the Bible so what has it been hearing well in the Bible does talk about the conditions that will exist at the time of Christ return. And you know one of the things he asks in Luke 18. Eight I tell you that will bring about justice for them quickly.
However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth question at this, Luke 18 eights talk about his return when he comes when he returns, will he find faith and literally in the Greek it's the face. The threat is in the Greek you can say it yeah you can say without definite article and I say with the definite article is just we find fairly find the faith pain piston. That's where it is in the Greek we find the faith. So we know that there's gonna be apostasy. Second Thessalonians 2 talks about that and we know that side of the first of the two other fertility for believe it is that these are get really bad and we also know from Matthew 24.
This note signed supporting his return are to get really bad. It's going to get worse and it's they don't realize they get live. God and then things get bad then they blame God saying a night game project. What about virtually people you know there are no, they're just playing the stage for their own demise, self-destruction really have their but now not all about love.
The 1619. Project says that the anniversary of America began with its arrival of slaves and 6019 and so there is where I actually rather than the declaration right out yet. Yet it grandma it's it's racist and here's are so many things people talk about this in the end, bitterness, everybody's been wronged one way or another. And when people remember wrong is not suffered from their ancestors and save this with Muslims and they say this is what you owe me because of what your ancient fathers did to my agent father what and then they quit lying that they doesn't get anything done.
It doesn't help anything but people he to do was for new forget move on and and an abiding truth and love is what Jesus taught with the world is moving away from what he taught. I suspect that he's removed his hand from our country and other countries will think basically turned his back on him. As you move your hand protection upon them, and they're going to suffer the consequences.
That's what we are doing is what happening in this country.
The solution is Christians repenting printing and standing up marching not writing but doing everything peacefully in voting and what to do because wickedness is in control of what we believe in love, we don't believe in that arena.
Protect your family if you do need a firearm or how they get these guys with the stamps. John so disabled I can't lift it to. I'm just back up break it at home but anyway I don't I don't know some of these guys didn't even have a gun to protect yourself.
You could learn some of the con. Willie actually that the teacher must in the steel and all that but I'm not going to worry about.
I can't worry about that much like judo and kung fu and McGaw so that years and years of martial arts experience. You know you might be noisy you have to because what I do for living. You know why that the second man was was there to provide defense against the government as it was for to make sure the right. It could have been a doing it was doing.
Again, that's why they put in there.
They debated whether to put it first or second figure to put it second, and so it's there and it's not just of the we could have got everything or cool it so that we can defend ourselves against the government and its oppressive ways. That's what it was for originally. In that context.
Okay, then they could defend them so well it was going to let no weapon right right we don't have now yeah well I'm glad they didn't save one thing got me today and on and I'll tell you I was over there and I handed the girl attractive Breitbart Jonathan surprising work you know on revival. Project narrative of the work in something like that and I've never heard before. Then I was walking out that track can happen. Just go that Mr. Mayor did it just got me out. But anyway, why did you preach it, I yeah thanks.
Now, you know my thoughts spell crazy things of God.
You know yes you know how you like.
Yes, I remember how it was safe for you not go out like you're right you're right Chuck Koppel appreciated Buddy okay yeah thanks not feel they are all right medical. God bless hey folks, whatever lines want to give me a call 877-207-2276. We have to kind of go with the flow of the times here, and others break. So what you give me a call if I would lines a letter from you. 772076577077 back to the show this guy on the line with Rick from High Point, North Carolina Rick, welcome your eye okay okay first-line commentary when you first came on you every day, all I like that commentary and added right all Paul usually first recalled the problem Hotmail when you talk about so medically crystal ball. Below you will not know the Bible and called it like you get all the parts that are no no more neck tobacco would wish to know how to apply calm people out on your show don't help, and how to apply with the bottle. Now you got a good colleague.
You started. I guess you heard him going so her right you like efficiently request your help with the God usually that the right to bar all to defend ourselves against God. Okay, how the government would go explain it. By doing with the did in the Revolutionary war rising up together and resisting the oppressive government that was upon them, and so will I research is likely to believe that the retained that right of self-defense and self protection and the right to to develop a militia because they understood okay the power of government and how oppressive it can become.
That was the reason they think. They included okay what would you not agree that it would be about order to resolve stuff like that without violence: Shalala absolutely if we can if we can resolve without violence that's exactly how it's supposed to be. We have the right biblically, we have the right as Christians of self-defense and Luke 2236.
I just said goodbye a sort that was the gun of the of the of the time and so he told people to do that say everybody could do it.
Look, we have one that's enough is not advocating violence, but he certainly is teaching have the right of self-defense and logical don't realize Jesus himself was physically violent. There's you.
I don't know what you wanted to write this for what going it's for righteousness like where he went into the religious area. Any clean house in more ways than one. Drained out after I clean how we Christians particular the men need to clean house in the Christian church today not say going the pulpits over but you stand up for righteousness when to get our own house in order that we can start getting the outhouse in order. One last thing on all now know, grandma and grandpa up while going to bed now for parole board okay will respect all the Walmart dry just like any other law break will fit. We quickly say when a woman has the right to kill the life in the womb hold up. I love you like no no no no I said something already tackle it. Are you saying it's a resume is okay for women to kill the life in the womb to kill the babies no about the bow go through not marred that they will get lucky.
An adult later marred what I saying we sing with you, the woman recently have the right to do that they the right to to kill the life in the okay why not the like a lot when I called out local right. I will hello what writer you saying you respect you respect the right to kill the baby in the womb of your sign. No, I would like to do oh so you respect her right to choose to kill the baby in the womb of the Lord know you don't if it's the law. Okay, okay Lala law is hold okay good. The law is not supreme God is supreme. When ever a government whenever a government becomes oppressive and whenever a government starts to destroy its own people and destroy what is it's meant to do to provide for the people to protect the people and to provide for the safety of families and the population therein, and when the government turns against that. Then we have grounds to redo that government. We do know God as Christians we do not approve of their promotion of homosexuality and abortion, we do not approve of it, and no Christian should ever approve of Oldman's so-called imaginary right to kill the baby within her womb, not her corrective because what I will when I made this guy but was looking at it from a Kuro legal standard and not around now so straight so you were dismissing the truth of God, and using a secular viewpoint as being valid, not the law I got to do after high radio show as a radio show when you politely and gently walk to the nearest wall and bang your head against the wall several times. Okay.
Just when you can check that out if you okay I want you to have no problem doing it.
I know you're trying to do make the roof off like that.
Okay. You shall kill the child and I've got a lot on its challenge people to public debates on it and they don't want to tackle because they don't have answers to difficult questions the life in a is doesn't begin in the womb continues in the that the sperm and the egg are both alive, they unite, they continue to present a unique genetic formation. The list become the twin that moment. That's what it is. I asked them his acumen or is it not human, it's either one or the other if they say it's not a gunman on that now.
When asking questions than what is it, if it's not human.
They'll say they don't know what it is.
It is knows not human them.
When asked about her question was like all that is it okay to transfer that fertilized egg put into the womb of the dog is not human problem, should it then that's all of a sudden well that's different will why because the genetics is not the same as that of the of the human. Then they say will have to be personhood. What gives that the definition the right place that personhood is what makes someone viable as a human because if you have a man to marry a coma is been a coma and not exercising into the attributes of personhood, self-awareness, awareness of others, communication, love, joy, peace, rational thought is not.
He's not suddenly not human because he's not exercising the attributes of personhood, humanity and redness are different than the mere attributes of the physical sense, and so they don't know what it is in the womb. They should not be killing. Furthermore, what happens to that life in the womb that alters its essence from nonhuman to human. What is it that occurs that suddenly now it's change in its nature and essence. Then there's that stupid people who say that the child doesn't have a right to those born they say yeah even an hour before you can determine, it is just simply that the location is what gives it rights.
Who are these people with low. I also used can't argue who don't think who were dead in their hearts, whose hearts are full of evil and wickedness that they would kill the innocent life in a womb because it's inconvenient man on telegraph.
The abortionists are killers. They need to repent. They need to be dealt with to be prayed over and upon and these women were supposed to be the example of sacrifice of care and nurture have become the women in the people of death when they served their own flesh and desire to kill the life in the because it's not human to them. When mother start acting like this. Our society is all the worse for it. Everybody were to go okay man call back another time there's a break right hay for the lines.
Give me a call 877-207-2276 direct mass like why call 77077 back to the show throughput lines 87 on the air by your donations. If you are no consider supporting us. We really appreciate that. All you gotta do is go to ARM.org CAR.RG/donate and that we have five dollars a month because it helps us create budgets were trying to do is get a thousand people who do five dollars a month so that we can pay bills, pay the missionaries and continue in the radio show if you like what you hear. Praise God, if you don't keep listening and see what happened. All right, let's get on the air with that of Mike from North Carolina, Mike welcome here, but really don't have a question more of a statement of my age. I'm 75 years old and I remember a time when you could mail order guns that magazine you need to spell out little forms in it and you get an M1 carbine or 20 bucks an M1 grand for about 30 you go or mail-order pistols handgun and also remember at that time there was prayers, and the school would wield the school day with prayer to a public school with an commandment at the end of this course will the 10 Commandments, one of which says thou shalt not murder, but we had there was Bible reading every day of some passage from the Bible that was read over the intercom, so our society is changed out tremendously and what we did was we flush got down the toilet and made whatever whatever feels good. You know, and any back manual. You talk about violent that that television promoting violent whatever number the bow was on TV. The good guy always one but that's not true today.
It what we teaches gratuitous violence and gets more and more graphic and and and is not just the TV but at that video games they they did a study on these videogames and be shooters and found that a lot of the shooters were experts at the videogames and some of them had never been for a shooting range they learn how to do the videogame and execute tremendous shots, although in movies evil people are the ones with the heroes now people who fornicate who lie steel. Those are the ones who know the heroes that's another thing right and there's a phrase I believe is an judge to find if everyone did what was right in his own eyes.
It's a phrase that is described the decay of the nation of Israel and its morality, and how it rebelled against God, and breaks apart become depressed because everyone did what was right in his own eyes. That's exactly what's happening today. The fact that an abortion was illegal. And you're right, we just think well secularist like you want us so we can think of secularist humanists and atheists for changing our country and for bringing to bear the increase in violence and adultery and divorce and pornography and mass shootings in all of it. You can think the leftists, the secularist, a humanist atheist Fort the blame working on in my lifetime I have seen an enormous changes in this country and I never thought about it the way I do now, so I became a Christian I became a Christian at a very late $8.49 when I became a Christian I was raised a Catholic but like all people.
I gave it up for Lent and became a born-again Christian when I was 49 somehow God opened my yeah by his grace and you know I'm with you I'm 65 and I've seen great changes. It used to be that you could say something you didn't like about a politician and they wouldn't get you canceled or fired from a job. Now if you say something that isn't popular then the students in colleges and universities rise up to silence you. They don't want you have free speech. They get rid of your social accounts. They get you off of the Arabic that had happened to me numerous times here because also sunny but Cove. It also something about this information. I don't trust the government and all of a sudden you little while later, I'm not allowed to broadcast on a certain venue. It used to be, were free but you understand the secularist's idea of freedom is not freedom it's oppression and they call it freedom because they don't want you to freely say what you think because you might disagree with them. So therefore we want freedom. Freedom for truth, freedom for everything.
Not what you think is true there are hypocrites, liars want one more thing that first first generation American and I remember when Castro took over. I was in Cuba throughout the 50s before he took over, and afterward but one of the first things he did was he collected everybody's guns and select my 5K with me. Why do you need done guns for anything and so he will round them all up and now they're stuck so themselves. Yeah, that's right. Totalitarian regimes don't want an armed citizen because noncitizens can then fight back. They want control. That's of the secularists want. They want control in all areas from freedom of speech to self-defense. They want control. I've been telling people this for long time, the only one. And if we Christians don't stand up and say we had enough of this is start uniting and petitioning and gathering publicly and protesting. We need to do this kind of thing that needs to be done and no ladies and gentlemen don't put your hope in the pretrip rapture don't do that is not happening finest of his toes. I love you. I think I've done a lot a lot of damage and no it in many ways because that's one of the things before they can make fun of it. The pretrip rapture is something that is not off a lot of damage to the body of Christ has we need to be out there networking and changing society not putting our hope in escaping out of it.
And Jesus says when when you look 1881 symmetrically find faith to live pretrip urgency have because we've all gone but they don't realize that he says when he returns he will take out of his kingdom. Those that are stumbling. His kingdom is here. People don't realize it because tumor dispensations, premillennialists, and pretrip rapture people been teaching this escape mentality and we live in America and we don't have to go through suffering because were blessed and it's coming down around us is coming down and so I've been telling people wake often put your hope and that'll put don't do that you know and don't if they didn't they realize were in this world for real.
And then they would do what Christ said go make disciples of all nations, things would be different but the Christian church here in America is largely is weak, apathetic and lazy largely okay that a lot of good people out there right okay but evaluating RMF godless political alright so what tell you guys and would be on clubhouse tonight in a couple of hours answering questions as to plan anyway. Clubhouse.com go to club decking downloaded books. Also, your phone clubhouse to look for this to search my maintenance look to find it was going near with the Nancy from Virginia Nancy welcome you are on the air right. Why is it. Matthew 76.
Do not give what is holy to dogs, no dogs was reference to the Gentiles to the people outside Israel that you remember Jesus was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Matthew 1524, he wasn't sent to the Gentiles lot people don't know this, but that's the case. He said he was only sent to Israel. Israel rejected the Messiah. We, the Gentiles are grafted in that part of the divine plan become financially Jesus only sent to the law, she would thousand of Israel. Matthew 1524 and so dogs was a term used to describe the Gentiles and you can see that by going to Psalm 22, which is a prophecy, the crucifixion of Christ where it says dogs have surrounded me a band of evildoers has encompassed me what he saying here in Matthew 76. Do not give what is holy to the dogs to those who are ungodly and do not throw your pearls before swine.
Swine are the unclean animal and pearls of great value. Don't give holy things to the dogs. Don't give it to them. What would be holy.
The teaching of truth. One thing is all truth rests in the mind of God and that which is true is that that which conforms to the mind of God. Therefore, truth has a holy value when Christians give it to the unbelievers there throwing pearls before swine and what they're doing when they let the unbelievers rule in politics, and education and everything else because they're not deliverables were doing in the world are ultimately giving with holy to the dogs.
Okay well you're welcome.
God bless. Also, folks met the body waiting to just finish up this verse.
Do not give what is holy to dogs. Do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under feet and turn and tear you to pieces. What's happening in this culture today is the Christians are being more and more persecuted. It's not taught it's not reported in the news, but it's on the rise and so you have to be careful. There is a concerted organized effort to undermine the Christian faith, and there are legal battles going on that undermine the Christian faith. The unbelievers will turn and tear you to pieces. This is what Jesus says Matthew 76. Do not give what is holy to dogs and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under feet and turn and tear you to pieces back 76 don't give belongs to God, to those snarling haters of truth and righteousness is when commentary says snarling haters of truth and righteousness.
They who make that which is bad. Good and good. So now that which is bad is abortion.
Note now I call it good at killing the life in the world and homosexuality and all that goes along with it. That is good and if you don't agree your bad in Isaiah 520 says woe to those who call good evil and evil good, and that's what's happening today and we Christians have liked what you and the Christians are doing.
Unfortunately is taking that light of truth and are hiding it because I don't want to be embarrassed and will be ridiculed and want to be silenced. One loser jobs to lose friends as we don't speak up. They go to church babysat and coddled and nursed in the past are supposed to equip them for the work of ministry is a set amount of the world and make disciples of all nations. This is what we Christians are called to do. Not called to cast our pearls before the swine.
We need to be going praying for them was right before God, world amended that the Lord bless you by his grace vocally back on there tomorrow I will talk you then other program powered by the Truth Network
