The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network mats like why is it apologetic why you have questions about Bible doctrine is immensely Grimes is called responding to your questions at 877 everybody welcome to the new Matt slick and you're looking at slick live.

If your newbie is my real name on a regular radio name and a I am a Christian apologist to defend the Christian faith with doing it for a long time.

If you want to give me a call only go do all you do is dial 877-207-2276 we have five open lines. Nobody waiting right now that's okay so yesterday I did a bit on the distinctive bit on the radio on the history of the Democratic Party. And then last night I was quite regular Wednesday nights on club deck clubhouses. I do a Q&A session for the room and moderator.

They just have to questions people coming all over and somehow to get these interesting discussions I had an interesting discussion. Two of them yesterday there was with one this guy in the other was about to a guy who claim to be reformed in his theology committed to Christ and was a Democrat and I said look, how could you be a Democrat I'm talking to people out there right now listen, how could you be a Christian and be part of a political party that promotes killing of the unborn and LGBT Q and socialism, all of which are flatly against Scripture in and out so we had a discussion about that and I read through the bit that I did on on that on the government attribute on the party attract and also went through Marxism communism went through socialism compared contrasted and trying to educate people who are listening on what the evils are of those systems and just to top it off when in and discussed the number of people murdered under those regimes and socialist communist regimes in 1900 well over 100 million people is high as 360 million. So yeah, it was an interesting discussion last night and you know people say will met your Christian field theologian one talk politics because every area of life is under the works of Jesus Christ and the political one is just as much under the purview of Christ as so is anything else, not just church on Sunday, so we Christians are to exhibit the Lordship of Christ in all areas, which means get involved in politics get involved with that of the media get involved with movies and things like that might be sought in the kitchen. My work and I got clean up and do stuff make some test for my wife that's what I call them or what she calls and have a TV nearby so I tried TV not listen to a new station and his woman was talking about. I listen for a minute and I said I'm done and she said yeah we need to vote for people being on the blue state over people who care about the health of women and that's why we need to vote blue and I knew what she was talking about, you know, these women's rights to kill the unborn in the womb, and whenever I hear people talk like that online or on TV. You never hear the issue of what is that which is in the womb. Is it human or not human alive or not live.

What is it that you don't hear that what you hear is women's rights, woman's rights, my rights me me me me my rights my rights me me me that's the opposite of what I've understood women to be women. Women are so last I get to have children they get to bear life in their own body and nurture that life from their own body. They have that ability to be kind and gentle in ways that men just cannot be. Women are awesome or special and when women start talking about what their rights are. Give me mind me, you know, this is the opposite wife I've grown up with understanding what women are to be other centered, caring, nurturing. We have the opposite of that. Now so much in the world where women they want to enjoy themselves and when the consequences of their actions take fruit. They want to kill that fruit and then they claim their rights and this is a real degradation of American society and world society as well is to do some things I think about and in that I believe so there you go right about that for start up a little bit at the beginning of the show want to get on the air with Calvin from Raleigh, North Carolina Calvin, welcome your nearby month to share with you okay China and Russia. On Russia no current made me think something Russia. I leave you with the school three. Russia and China have been quite some time. No not only develop the red with what you with all new lion to speed on all back creating standard five in the US dollar is quite an ambitious goal but it is not entirely a few weeks ago, the Russian central bank (in Beijing got it right at the difficult development that they believe a strong vision Michael lion break up in the financial sector okay will hold okay so your reading a lot of stuff okay so you have a question related to all of this? You will you know what is your talk. I'm looking it up and yeah it does look like Russia and China brewing up this challenge to dollar dominance by creating a new reserve currency. Yes, it is because what would happen.

From what I've understood at this kind of thing happens, it will destroy the US economy.

Just as you will really well now and whatever our government leaders doing well there giving billions of dollars of arms to our enemies.

They are destroying our own economy by causing inflation causing problems people outside the United States. Either that the writing on the wall that America is eating itself alive. They gotta get up, get away from it all before completely gone. Yeah, we can sink the leftist Democrat for that now, I'm no you had a plan.

Yeah, I know very very yes I know I didn't do more research on it and put in my file, I will file in government and we can just distance notes about things that you talk about regular have documentation and things like that and so I need it as well. This is all part of over the struggle that nations go through and Israel has fallen throughout history numerous times nations of fallen and you might be it might be. There's a book the rise and fall of the Roman Empire conversing in the 70s and on the left and the left page was a picture book basically with a couple captions and on the left page was Roman the right page. It was right side.

It was America United States. And so it had statues and pictures and things like this. Paintings on the left depicting the issues of Rome and its rise and with parallel with America and it went through the destruction of Rome Roman Empire and it got to that place before it was destroyed. He kept going on the left side you see the pictures keep going but the right-sided stop because United States wasn't that far gone yet and so what you'd seen was the same kind of degradation, morally, politically, it was going on in Rome Roman Empire that was occurring in the United States was back in the 70s that I saw this book that still around now anyway. It's the same thing on the being laissez-faire about it is a serious and as I was saying last night on on the on the chat system I and I believe America is too far gone. I do believe it too far gone to I believe it can be saved but it has to be saved by the conservative standing up in unison very soon and saying enough of this. And then we need to get our Constitution back from Republic back and get these these anti-Americans out of office who whose interests are more in Russia and China and in the dollar bill that have the character there there for decades.

There get entrenched, they become corrupted. You I don't think about it you trust the FBI. I don't know the trust of federal government. I don't you trust the IRS. I don't trust him. Trust middle all kind right.

Thank you bring that to my attention. I will need to look at it thank you very much, all right, let's get to Rudolph from Raleigh, North Carolina welcoming on Their Way in Frederick a lot for the rest of you print rest view is that Jesus returned in 70 A.D. with the destruction of the Temple of he returned in the armies of Jerusalem of the armies of Rome attacking Jerusalem and that was how he returned, and if all things spoken of in Matthew 24 Luke 1713, were fulfilled at that time in its false because you can refute plagiarism by going up actual 9 to 11 Rick tells us how Jesus can return a doctor return that ways can return in the clouds so okay okay okay that quick and slick, right there. There you welcome brother and look at our half-day okay will get my window okay when you turn that off to drop him off the call, so hold on Keith. They could drop in my window froze and the should unfreeze her little bit yeah it's frozen. In fact, no computerlike referrals no VisiCalc and there were good a life stuff. All right hey three open lines going to give me a call 877-207-2276 disc at the Justin from new Hampshire. Justin welcoming on your gone gone big but we got only so while reading your article on the atonement regarding how Mormon you.

It is not website and it sounds like an egg formation is logically followed calling it sounds like they the atonement by the end basically keeping all the commandment go the way that atonement is like rock you is that I did admit here that I'm a little fuzzy on LDS materiality.

And it's because I've not seen any say this without this being needlessly offensive and not trying to be, but any in-depth's serious intellectual examination of their atoning belief system and the reason is I think because they teach that Jesus bore our sins in his body on the cross but also in the garbage.

Astoundingly, sweat, blood, that was the main, atoning, which is a denial of the cross so you break hey folks, we have two of the lines going to give me a call 877207276 of the writeback mass Y. Call 77077 open lines 877-207-2276 Justin still there. I am area all right where were we in Lochner commercial anyway so talk about atonement being yeah so you're saying you haven't really found anything that get the urology now my friend Bill McKeever, after looking@hiswebsiterightnowmrm.org assembly atonement and look at the article there. Now he sees the he really knows her stuff and set up efforts and I would handle Russia's lines of set. I wasn't doing every morning talk at you he's awesome. He and Eric do great stuff and so we we talked about this before have asked him and you know and so he has the same view that I remember as I do. It's not as precise as it needs to be and they teach that he suffered in a garden of Gethsemane and that I've heard Mormons and read stuff in Mormonism and says that he atoned there, but also they say he atoned on the cross. What seemed to be both. But the Bible says he will he bore our sins in his body on the cross. First Peter 224 and yet they say the suffering began, a Gethsemane party 20 sacrifice, which can't be so there is this ambiguity here and it's often the case with with groups that are not, but because it have true God, the true gospel don't understand true theology, they can't ever have a very precise theological examination of things as one of the reasons I was there like arbitrary to guard you. One moment garden and year more and more towards the cross. They're adding it online at Apple thought not to be shrewd about it unitedly like yeah no so bad and sat on Bill's website I'm reading right now. Since this is from gratitude of the atonement & June 2007 15 it says quote near the end of his earthly ministry.

The Savior went with his disciples to the Mount of olives to the garment assembly. It was there that the Savior paid for the price for all our sorrows, sins and transgressions of every human being who ever lived, and never will so that that's the heresy you know any reason, so I've been getting the name on things that will apologetic you know any buddy you with that.

In regard to Mormonism like working out the creations of God, being a man standing there dating and thought, you mean like Dr. Fontenot to get this straight. You're saying Greg Bronson in relationship to Mormonism. Okay so he had a I'm listening to his apologetic yes because I'm listening to it, my mind start think everything in regards to my you know, lining up in it by the wasn't sure if there is a different type of resource that might yield the freeing position, letting just how can you apply presupposition apologetics to Mormonism you can. You have to understand a little with the deeper areas of presupposition was in the necessary preconditions for intelligibility at present written rest of the Trinitarian God. So the ultimate source of all things have to be one can be multiple ultimates and if there are multiple ultimates you don't have any ultimate you don't have anything that you can ground anything in not explaining everything but this is how it works and return measure in Mormonism. There is no ultimate source is no ultimate being and so when you go presupposition all and what you do is you assume the Trinitarian view and monotheism, not Hennessey. Is Mike Mormonism has many gods, they serve and worship only one and so that multiple gods and so there functionally have multiple ultimates multiple ultimates are self refuting. You can't have that. It does not work.

Logically, it's impossible, and so this is a mongers problem and in Mormonism they cannot face this kind of intellectual difficulty because it's impossible for the Mormon system to be maintained logically, intellectually, when you start examining in this level. It is flat-out impossible and it's so bad that it is proves Mormonism is false.

I got you written on on this one little article in an ontological proof of Mormonism's impossibility with the multiple ideas of God because multiple ideas of God. You can't ground universals like a circle, mass darkness, the number seven in the laws of logic.

You can't ground them with the multiple sources of ultimate there has to be a single ultimate called abstract entities. This is way above average everyday radio conversation that you'll never find a Mormon Mormon who can talk about the stuff and also defend Mormonism is just possible and so you're becoming more aware of that. I'm assuming right SO yeah I'm looking for Christian resource that deals with or you know that has touched on that in presupposition of the all that but if I'd been thinking about is one more day playing games a lot like the LBS my dad that morning and all that stuff so you know will need to wanting to reach out and care for my mail carefully so I love on know the implications of the situations you then you know the right you know you have written on on the website, but the logical truth of Mormonism is false and it's there you can go check it out.

It's not too deep. I could write another one or two that are very deep but the average Joe would not understand. So they would be meant for people who have more logical philosophical training and what things are truth values needed. It boggles my mind. You know, the more more more more engaging.

It the more more you'll make that though I think you going with it. You could keep doing that. My cousin Leon because you'll find presupposition apologetics to be incredibly powerful, incredibly powerful and it will, it will provide the foundation from which your intellectual understanding of God will increase further then any other apologetic system like classical or evidential right and one more question now looking outside job on the go.

One would you recommend or are they all find Missouri go to for you. The AGD is good art, kindred good lexicon you I would just get one or two of the Greek dictionary lexicon to go through stuff and you find it to be fine. You go to blue letter Bible.com. You can look on their right.

Okay hey folks, you feel the lines will get to Alberto next line we call 87720776577077 back in body. Let's get to Alberto from Earl welcome buddy finally met her on your you want I can. Alberto you there is no zone near Alberto took another 10 seconds. I could talk about him behind his belly over there you go, a menu on your body all why there are so hard-core about documenting our shrimp believed that. That's good. On the window to try to get big.

But when they starting off their not so hard-core about it. I have no idea if that's even true.

I can't speak to that kind of a thing you know why this way that I know with all the situations are so you know I I'm still human example how they think about the garden congregate in small dwelling to be no money left side mob import back on speaking that benefit that they need help that they need the member whatever they got small so that I can on that good Alberto, you're just what you do is you coming up your saviors of you think might be the case, why is it the case that it know I want to respond to it. Well I got kids because I don't know what you're saying is accurate and so that's it. You need to call came a little more size instead of just based on opinion. Okay okay the question how come back to rebuild somebody didn't write any kind got rebuilt it but about what they God sees all and God is all not stepping up our wide that you get to be aware that he opted to and also until included looking up at you saying is that you could relive what you say six Mac why does. Why does one person do this. This way then that way about certain issues that aren't very precise you're asking such ambiguous things I can't respond to them. Okay okay medical I can vent the flock a game became gained only at the why did a faded Bible boarded him anything.

When reality reported were added throughout the century and and then claim that by making the making, because are overly loyal to the King James to be little just convinced that it's the truth.

I've talked to many that camp and there are not very informed okay just never informed, all right, all right. Okay. All right. Thank you all right overlook that buddy. Can you appreciate it wow looks up, let's get to Glenn from North Carolina, Glenn El Camino, near a road when he got you a month and 1/2 ago about. Never think that's great. If they know not in Israel and then you headed in the know with that damp out Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the children they came to get that believing that you get the you will get together but you buddy think tank data you can demand that love God. As you figured one out. Many are oh so many of the phrase the many or paid or you think brazen act. Well I just did a search for the phrase the many and its first occurrences in Romans 515 and the phrase the many is a specific specific phrase used in the Scriptures forth by the transgression of the one the many died so that phrase the many deals for everybody never lived.

So here's what it says it works by the transgression of the one the many died, much more to the grace of God and the gift of grace of the one man Jesus Christ bound to the many and so with that.

Second, the many depending how you interpret it could be the same group. That's the first or second group called the mini and that is certainly legitimately understood that way because Paul then in verse 18 talks about the all and then again in verse 19 the many again so there's a play on words that he's using some I'm not sure what you're asking for it does occur in other verses to their in heaven.

Obviously, in the many not required will update will not all of the many are in heaven. Some of them having been born yet.

Okay. Well, now that I'm talking about what he talking about that one word and that which first we look in the evening. Maybe Mark okay Centurion yeah this is Matthew eight.

The servant was paralyzed, etc. okay and then he was healed so okay now inside of that Paris compete when we look at the mania that it did not say I don't see the phrase the many there, so I'm not able to to see that you have to show me always to show the exact verse because I like to go to and so the mini does not occur in the King James solicitor oh okay and what verse is that okay Isaac and Jacob and the children of the kingdom. The cat To be weeping and that and it had me funny for any reference in people. What I'm not. You losers are those who come to faith, then you can believe in and join with with the Lord now that's what's going on that okay that they not talk all not well loved up thinking it is not what I didn't understand all not up some say yes, some say no. Some say Matthias is the 12th because he was chosen by the apostles and others say that he was not because it was under the Old Testament system where the cast lots considers debate about it, and in some say the data that would make 13 apostles, but there are different kinds of apostles at least seven different kinds in the Bible so you know it, whatever side you want to go with. There's an argument on the other side, and I don't know if it's provable how many there are and if what Paul was excluded I felt a lot not of try there on the back lot not gambling and I'm the only why I think is at the crawl, they Lot their gambling garment running in Blazek in their learning. Date they pray they pray in the Lord to show an example. Well, it was a gamble. In essence, wasn't gambling it was the casting lots to see what God would do anymore gambling with the nursing show was using. This means so that's what I'm thinking is gambling what you gain something by a certain election throwing dice so you so I don't know you know I am not sure tell you at this point because it's something I've been aware of for long time in the discussion. The I've never seen anything that's settled, it is just so people think. 13.

The number sent Hockney a 13 apostles and also called apostles number 13 review number 12 dwelling on the disciples themselves picked the other one. Okay does that mean it was invalid because the cast lots of the Old Testament system. We don't know, but they knew it was going on are still called and so then what would that place of Paul as the 13th apostle. Maybe it does.

There you go, and he was definitely apostle and called by the Lord Jesus. So it's just it's is not answerable to the Bible doesn't give us enough information to settle the issue over 13 or even more.

Okay I are better God bless.

All right. And let's get to Mike after his salvation inherited, that is a good question. They folks to logically give you calling 772072276 right back that I call 770727 show let's get to Mike from Virginia Mike welcome to her all right hanging in there. We got a couple of days ago.

I'm right and you're right, Eric.

Great Eric, what about it who generation brought up her stuff like that you like they don't really get you broke all the ensembles as if they don't, what know all people have chance to suppress the truth of God in their unrighteousness. Everybody Romans 118 following says that God makes himself known to people and he does have a way of wooing people in the Middle East were Muslims are, for example, Jesus is appearing in visions and dreams by the thousands and thousands and thousands of people are converting to Christ.

There there are plenty of tribes that have been cut off from we call civilization, who have embedded in their cultures. The gospel message woven into varying things in your history, God has his way of communicating the truth. The people so someone born. For example, in a Mormon family and if they die Mormon to go to hell. Well the thing is that they still have the responsibility to believe the truth and not a lie and they have the obligation to find out because they just do. And God will communicate to them at various times. The truths that they will either reject or accept the freely, freely, what are responsible for rejecting what it is that God is offered to them. It could be like hearing me on the radio. Hearing Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson on the radio in Salt Lake City. Picking up a truck off the ground and spun reading something is true and there, not believing it.

So we'll talk about people who didn't hear this, he didn't hear that well know, we can't say that God has his way of communicating the truth. All people and he does okay is what the Bible says in Romans 118 through 31 sky. There, I thank you all right, brother.

God bless. Okay, let's get on with stay from North Carolina. Welcome your money are better sure I you or I think there's checkers tournaments so you know know the Bible doesn't say except to say that we can't even imagine how good is now my Gagnon the greatest good is in the presence of Jesus and God himself and was going up.

I believe I do firmly believe that the experience of his presence is so incredibly ominous and wonderful that once and it do not want to leave it just can be self satisfying or completely satisfying in the fact of being in his presence is can be wondrously awesome and and I just don't see us sitting on you go do something now walkabout walk over here it just and leave this. Are you kidding it could be that kind of thing going on so well you I don't know but I know that with the best thing I can think of is getting better in my idea of something really good, really wonderful for me is just sitting next to a calm ocean front and hammocks.

A cool breeze and bright sun and watching the beautiful waves in the creatures fish to me is is a delight and to me it's the it's this incredibly relaxing and that nothing nothing compared to his presence. Also people playing sports. Some people look to be skydiving. Who knows, we have are things but this whatever you think is the best most wonderful. It's nothing compared to what really be angry. I never think of leisure time that adequate Popsicle when it comes to get there exactly at that it will be in the and the consequences of avoiding getting there.

The paradigm because of previous caller came up in an upward bill for my car though but yet but that is exactly what I've read better. We believe that the Mormons idea of heaven as being for families now I'm not singing families and wonderful to be with them, but to say that heaven is good to be with their families means I have no clue who God really is me to think that this human level of stuff is what you have and be his just a testament to how little you understand what the infinite God. They don't have an understanding of who is so they think things like that and people who are far away from God. Their pleasures of heaven usually are more carnal, more self-centered example of that. Thank you very much. I'm sure it will apply and you that we can think of here will you before you go to can share something with you and this is a strict experience at the what I was 17 I was saved but the salvation that I experience was not just a hair walk up front. I feel good and I'm not saved, it was it was a tremendous experience of the super intense presence of God's holiness and it reduced me to just a bag of sobbing tears in the presence of undulating indwelling overshadowing holiness as I remember it in the only thing I could do was keep my face to the ground.

That was the that was it. That was the only option I have because it was only thing I would allow myself to do because that's all I could do and I've never forgotten that experience in the presence of the Lord was there.

Forgiveness came in. So in a small way of experience. I do believe it was really legitimately him experience something incredible and when I think of carrying that into heaven and experiencing God on that level. I can subjectively believe that it will be completely enough because God is completely sufficient in himself. We won't have any needs outside of him is not to say we want people to go to Andromeda galaxy. I don't know how to work but this could be him and he is sufficient and we don't need anything else in this is another example of how cults because of a false God. Their idea of heaven is not based upon him, but upon something else. Families in Mormonism or paradise earth and Jehovah's Witnesses or in Islam 70 virgins. These are the theologies of men created for sensuality and personal experience and then salt and peppered to make it more appealing to a broader people. As the decades of progress and that's of the cases with them, but in Scripture. Now he is our reward. He presses that that's it. I have very broadbrush like that, but it is very important, though, thank you for your minute and then your bike will praise God. Yet it's right he gets. It's all I want in heaven need anything just to be with him. That's all that's is enough right remainder okay will you.

God bless.

All right, let's get to know well from Virginia Noel welcome your on the I'm okay I'm hanging in there when you got out about lacking in many will come front and back and find that I have been lucky sure I really like talking about file. I remember the other deferred. Remember when talking about that I'll have the blackbird content block.

I think here on the right there on that company that I'm like that old daylight cannulae saying that are there and have a calming and finding out how undeclared that's what makes sense to me.

I still see the Gentiles as well. We know this prophesied in Genesis 12 three in you all the nations shall be blessed, called the gospel by Paul in Galatians 38 so absolutely the Steelers size juice covenant people of Israel out on the God asked me about yes I really think about right.

I realize I know a lot about God that I have a hard time like knowing God and Donna think like pain to get now that now you plenty delight in. Think of the valley that felt like that you actually were talking about the Bible study and read the Bible study tonight house or a couple of hours so I can ask Mike as we approach the end of James a week or two or three asked what they want to go arrival talk to you later God bless.

Okay they folks, sorry about that. Sorry kid for waiting so long Jamar also the Lord bless you and by his graceful tobacco. There will another program powered by the Truth Network
