Francis, taking your calls and responding to your questions at 877-207-2276. Here's Matt Slick. Everybody welcome to the show.
It's me, Matt Slick, and you are listening to Matt Slick live. I hope you're going to have a good time listening and by God's grace, we'll have some callers calling in. Actually, I'm hoping that some people I was discussing some stuff with today will call in because there's this new thing on messenger and it popped up on my phone, it popped up on my computer and I'm like, okay, what's all this about? So I get into this room, this discussion room and it's a, I don't know, it's a new thing and a bunch of Muslims are in there and oh man, it was an interesting discussion.
I was really impressed by the ability to almost think critically, almost think logically and to make the Quran say what they wanted it to say in order to make it look acceptable. And what I did was, among many things, I had to correct them on their idea of what the Trinity was and we went to an interesting verse and we'll talk about it really fast because I'm hoping they're listening. I went in like five minutes ago and said, you guys want to come on in and talk? You want to ask me questions?
Please do. And so we went to, get this, we went to Surah 573 and I'm showing them a problem in the Quran. And there are many, they do blaspheme who say Allah is one of three in a Trinity before there is none God except one Allah. And so that was Yusuf Ali, the Pickthal translation says, it's blasphemy to say Allah is the third of three when there is no Allah save one Allah.
All right. So they've said, it doesn't say Trinity in the original and the guy was telling me doesn't say the Trinity in Arabic. And he was saying, it is not saying the Trinity is three Gods.
I'm trying to remember what he said accurately. I'm not trying to misrepresent. Okay.
Because a lot of people are jumping in and it was pretty much a dog pile. And so I said, okay. So when it says Allah is, they surely disbelieve who say that Allah is the third of three when there is no Allah save the one Allah. I said, a third of three, a third of three what? And he wouldn't answer.
Well, it just doesn't say, okay, well, what's it talking about? A third of three. There's only one Allah. Third of three, what is three Gods because Allah is God.
Right. And he wouldn't answer. And they came back with this convoluted stuff about logic. And so I'm just like, you know, it was really amazing to me to hear this because Allah is just, it's wrong to say Allah is a third of three when there's no Allah except one Allah. Well, three Allah's. No, there's not three Allah's.
There's one Allah. That's what's going on in the text. And they wouldn't even admit that. And these are supposed to be Muslims who know the Quran.
And then it really got interesting. I quoted surah 42, which says that if there's any discrepancy in the Quran, you know, it's not from Allah. And they said, no, not any, it's many. I said, okay. So let's, you know, if there's much discrepancy or many discrepancy, I said, okay, so is one discrepancy. Okay. That is just one.
And actually one of them said, no, it's not so good. All right. Because, uh, it says that her head, uh, will they then ponder on the Quran if it had been from other than Allah, they would have found there in much incongruity. Okay.
And, uh, the, the, uh, that was the pick fall version. The use of Ali version, uh, had it been other than Allah, they would have found it there in much discrepancy. So if there's any problems, then, um, uh, it's not from Allah. So I said, okay, let's go to surah 86. Uh, let's see. No, 86, 84, five through seven, no, 86, five through seven.
I do this so many times. I get my numbers mixed up. Yeah.
86, five, six to seven. And this is what it says. Now let man, but think from what he's created, he's created from a drop emitted proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs. So I said, look, this is what the Quran says that a man's seed comes from his chest. And they said, no, it doesn't crack it up because I said, well, it says proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs. Where's the backbone and the ribs, you know?
Where is that? And they were trying to say, Oh man. Oh man. They're trying to say that, the loin area is between the backbone and the ribs. And I said, it is, they said, you know, they were trying to say the backbone and the ribs considered a vertical area that encompasses the entire body, head below everything. And I'd actually thought about that before.
I was wondering if any Muslim are going to say that. And they did. And so I said, so the loins are between the backbone and the ribs. That's right. They're in between down low.
It reminds me of wacko mail. And so just the logic. I said, well, then my head is between my ribs and my backbone.
Is that where the drop comes from too? One guy goes, yeah. I go, what?
I'm like, no way. And so the other guys were saying, no, don't be dumb. Okay.
And I think it's with me. So anyway, I'm trying to remember accurately, but it was quite an interesting discussion that I had with these guys. And man, this is what happens when you defend a false teaching, a false God, a false gospel, a false everything.
And it was really bad. And they kept claiming victory. Oh, you always claim victory.
Hey, if you want to give me a call, 877-207-2276. We have 500 lines. I remember, I remember once I had a debate, an online debate. I was in on two computers and in the same account. And we had this debate.
It was arranged and I forgot who, when I didn't forget what year, but I remember this. So I'm, I'm in under a laptop and I have lots of computers in the house. I was a computer tech for years.
And so I'm in one computer as me, and I'm in another computer just as an alias, just listening. Right. And so I had this debate with this Muslim guy and I answered, I think it was every question except one or two. And I couldn't answer because the time ran out and I wasn't able to address it.
It wasn't that I was, I couldn't, it's, you know, I didn't answer because we ran out of time to move on. And these guys, cause when the debate was over, I left and I listened on the other computer. And it was amazing because they were saying how I couldn't answer a single question and how my opponent answered every question, which was not true. I mean, it was no way it was true. And I was actually sitting here listening and laughing because, oh my goodness, how deceived are these guys?
Well, if you believe in Allah and Muhammad, then it just shows you how deceived you are. So anyway, it was, it was an interesting discussion I had before with him. I like to teach about the Quran every now and then and go in there with the Muslims because I need the practice. I need the practice to be able to see what arguments they're going to use.
I put them into my file and, you know, answer them and have them ready. Hey, but look, if you want to give me a call, we can talk about whatever you want to talk about. 877-207-2276. I want to hear from you. Give me a call.
All right. That was fun for me. Now there are other things in the Quran I could talk about. In fact, it says we have no callers waiting. I think I will.
I think I'm going to do some more. Let's see. This is what it says. In surah 4, 1 71, it says, uh, Oh, people of the book. Now that's written in reference to the Christians commit no excess in your religion nor say of Allah, but the truth Jesus Christ, the son of Mary was no more than an apostle of Allah and his word, which he bestowed on Mary and his spirit proceeding from him.
And it says, say not Trinity desist. It would be better if Allah is one Allah. You see, there's a go, you know, the Quran gets the idea of the Trinity wrong, but you don't think it's a plurality and it's not a plurality of God because it wouldn't say Allah is one Allah or God is one God. We saved him. Trinity is one God is one God.
So anyway, it makes a mistake there. And, uh, so we got talking and I said, uh, so don't say that Jesus is, uh, is divine or anything. Just say he's, uh, an apostle of Allah.
That's all he is. And I said, the funny thing is, John said, John, the apostle who worked with Jesus and knew Jesus, he wrote that Jesus said, unless you believe that I am, that you will die in your sins. And we actually had a Muslim who got on and said, are you saying that if I don't believe Jesus is God and I'm going to hell?
I said, yes. And then Jesus said, unless you believe that I am, but you will die in your sins. And I went on, believe it or not, they were quiet.
It was weird. And I went on and I taught about the deity of Christ and what the Jews said. And I went to John 10 30, where Jesus says, I, the father of one, many good works of the father I've shown you for which are the days. So they want to kill him for saying that. And I said, did the Jews think that Jesus was God? And they said, of course not.
I said, so Muslims, do you agree with the Jews that he's not God? And they go, yes. Anyway, there's just so many things we could talk about, but Hey, if you want to give me a call, all you gotta do is dial 877-207-2276. Let's get to Dave from Salt Lake city. Hey, Dave, welcome. You're on the air. Hi, how's it going today, Matt? Oh, it's going, hanging in there. No big deal.
What do you got buddy? Yeah. Uh, so when it comes to individuals that believe in evolution or maybe the FPS or whatever the case may be, and you're trying to, uh, show them an evidence of God, and I know you've talked about, um, the, how shall I say logic involved in this conversation, right? Um, if, if the individual, whether it's pride, right.
Cause you know, that pride comes before the fall. Um, sometimes I get, I don't know, some of these people you debate, it's like arguing with idiots sometimes, right? Like it seems to be like, uh, a lesson in, uh, how shall we say, uh, futility.
Yes, it is. A lot of times. So you got a question? So I guess my question would be, is there a point when you're trying to get through to somebody and share with them that you just give up, that it's okay to lovingly move on? Like, it's obvious that they don't get it.
I mean, obviously, you know, we want to win them. Yes, there is a, yes, there is a point when you just say we're done and you dust the feet off your shoes and you move forward. There are people who, no matter what you tell them, they're going to reject the truth because God has not opened their hearts and their minds.
Like the Muslims I was teaching or talking with today, they just have no capacity to understand the truth because God has not granted it to them and they're lost. And so after a while you say, okay, we're just done talking. You know, I'm not going to get any further with you.
I've already said what I had to say like four times, repeating ourselves. I'm just going to move on. Oh, you're running. Yeah, you're running. And I say, look, look, look, we've already gone over this because they like to do this. Oh, you're running. Can't handle it. And I say, look, what do you want to do?
Meet behind the cafeteria for school? What are you talking like? Right.
You talk like a child. Yeah, it's ridiculous. Right. So I say, yeah, you just move on. Yeah.
Awesome. I appreciate your heart and your teaching, Matt. Continue to fight the good fight.
And hopefully we find enough, uh, any that are willing to listen and that we can help lead them to the Lord. Yeah. That's, that's the goal. You don't want everybody to find Jesus.
That's what it is. All right, brother. God bless, man.
All right. That was Dave from Salt Lake City. I'll be down there in a couple of weeks preaching down in Provo.
And I stay in Sandy, Utah when I do that. Hey, if you want to give me a call, five open lines, 877-207-2276. We'll be right back. It's Matt Slick live, taking your calls at 877-207-2276.
Here's Matt Slick. All right, buddy. We had a bit of a technical problem trying to figure things out. Maybe you heard us on the air or not.
I don't know, but that does happen sometimes. So no big deal. We worked it out and let's get to Ken from North Carolina. Ken, welcome. You're on the air. Hi, how are you? Doing all right. Hang on.
My question is, uh, my question is, uh, support a, uh, Sunday school and a midweek service in addition to the primary worship. Um, he doesn't really say anything about it. It says as often as you come together and they meet in different times, different places. Uh, so I don't see anything that prevents it. Uh, so, you know, it's fine.
It's instruction. More of a tradition, would you say? Well, yeah, it would be traditional. Uh, it could be tradition.
Uh, if people just do it for very long, it's true. Become a tradition. I think it's fine to have a children's service away from the adults.
I prefer it because most children is out of control. Yeah. Yeah.
Okay. Well, I, I agree with that. It's, uh, it's more of a tradition, but you know, that don't been going on for such a long time. It's been incorporated in the church as an actual part of it, which you really can't substantiate from scripture. Right.
That's true. It's not specifically stated in scripture as something to do, but it's not prohibited by scripture either. And so in what was called the regular principle, the regular principle, there's two main views. You can do whatever the scripture, uh, uh, you can do anything unless the scripture says don't. And the other one says, uh, you can only do what the scripture tells you to do.
And so I'd like the first one you can do. You're free. Uh, just as long as you don't violate scripture. It has liberty. Yeah.
We have liberty there. Okay. Well, thank you.
That's my question. All right. Well, God bless.
Thanks. Yeah. I like the idea of children being outside the service, uh, because the parents in my experience of different churches don't keep their children, um, under control. Sometimes I let them play, uh, hit things over and over again. And it's very distracting and the parents don't seem to mind. And so for that kind of stuff, I say, you know, take the kids out. And there are, I've been to a couple of churches where the parents have got the kids, uh, you know, they mind and, and, you know, I understand all the kids going to do something here and there.
We get that. But, uh, for the most part, uh, I have been to churches where, uh, you know, the children are well behaved, but, you know, I can't enjoy the service. I'd be just like, what are they saying? And next to me, some kids hitting the book genius, like, ah, so that bothers me. I can't, uh, I can't listen.
So that's what it is. Let's get to Mark from North Carolina. Mark, welcome.
You're on the air. Hey, Matt, thank you. And I don't really have a question about baptism too much as it is. I, uh, I saw you debate someone the other night on baptism, but obviously church of Christ and, uh, and I thought you did a great job. There was one passage that you didn't use and, uh, and I would like to share that with you. And that's, uh, acts, uh, 10 47. And this is where Peter is talking to, uh, Cornelius and his family. And he said, can any man forbid water that he should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost.
So just as we have, they have to be saved, but they were not, uh, he said they're not saved yet. That's ridiculous. Right.
Uh, I'm not sure which debates you heard, but yeah, I'm very familiar with, uh, with that, that pericope. It's X 10 44 through 48. I cross reference it with X two 38, because next to 38, you get baptized and then you receive the Holy Spirit. But in X 10 44 through 48, they received the Holy Spirit.
Then they were baptized. So I asked people, I say, well, which one's the right one? And, uh, as if there is only one, right. They're both right. So it's a trick question.
Which one's the right one? And they fall for it though. Well, this was the right one. Oh, so scriptures did cut it itself, you know, so, uh, stuff like that. You gotta be quick. You gotta be slick, you know, quick and slick. So, yeah, that's good stuff.
You did a great, yeah, you did a great job. I thought it's just like you say, it depends on how they, what questions they ask. They find them in a way, you know, that you can't really answer like they won't hear it.
Yeah. That's why if you notice that some of the debates I have with people that I'll ask the same thing over and over again. And, uh, because I find that people don't want to answer the questions and because I can ask difficult questions of people, right.
And they don't want to do that. That's why I think I should be an interrogator for the people in the Senate and the Congress because I know how to ask questions. That's all. Yeah.
And I know how to ask questions and I know how to get an answer out of them because I wouldn't let them be all over the place. I go, Nope, I asked you a specific question. The answer is either yes or no. Affirmative.
Then what's the answer? And then I would make it so that they hated my guts when I walk in. Oh yeah, that's right. I had some friends, I'll call them brothers, but I'm not 100% sure, but I'll call them brothers. They met with me for six weeks, for two hours, once a week. And they tried to convince me you had to be baptized. And I said, I don't have a problem with being, but we should be baptized. But I said, what other commandments, what made me all the commandments?
If you break one of them, you go to hell. I mean, it makes sense. Well, needless to say, they never brought me a list.
Of course not. This is why it's necessary to, what I do is I take notes when I, because I'm sitting at my computer, usually discussing things. I take notes with people, what they say, and I will actually write out a question as they're talking. I'm thinking, okay, that you're saying this. I'm going to write out a question related to what they're saying so that I can literally read the question back to them over and over and over again. And that's what I'll do. And you need to do that too, because just like you said, you'd go for hours and they won't believe it. It's because they're brainwashed. So what you have to do is get through the brainwashing. You've got to ask the same thing over and over and over and over again. And what I'll sometimes do, like you brought up Acts 10, 44 through 48.
I'll say Acts 10, 44 through 48. I'll say that over and over and over and over and over again. So they memorize it because that's what it takes sometimes. All right, buddy. Hey, we got to go. Love you brother. Amen. God bless, Mark.
All right. Four open lines, 877-207-2276. Be right back. It's Matt Slick live. Taking your calls at 877-207-2276.
Here's Matt Slick. Welcome back to the show, 877-207-2276. If you want to give me a call, that's the number.
Let's get to, let's see, Carrie from Idaho. Hey, welcome. You're on the air. Hi. I'm on the air, right? Can you hear me? Yes, you are. Oh yeah.
All right. I have a question. King David or David with Bathsheba, he lost his baby and the baby died. And I want to know, um, was that the sins of the father? Was the child punished for the sins of the father?
That's a good question. And, um, yes, we'd have to look at, well, what is a punishment? Who was being punished? It was David obviously being punished. The punishment was he lost his son. Does that mean the son was punished?
No. If anything, we could say that it was a blessing in that the child would enter straight into the presence of God without having to go through stuff and risk not being with the Lord since David did have problems with his sons. So it's a matter of perspective on how we were to see that. David certainly lost his firstborn because of what he did with Bathsheba. And so there are consequences for our actions. And David broke covenant and God punished him for breaking the covenant requirements of faithfulness to God and his people.
And so he was punished. Yeah. Okay. All right. Do you have other colors waiting?
Yeah, we've got two more, but go ahead. You had a question. I do, but I don't know if you're going to want to answer it. It might be more of a, I don't know.
I'll ask it. Um, if somebody sins against you, are we supposed, and they're a fellow Christian, are we supposed to confront them in a loving way when it's our step parents? Like there's an authority issue there. Depends on what it is. If it's, you know, there's a lot of, uh, just kind of a gray area here. If it is just kind of a whatever situation and bringing it up might be adultery.
Well then if they claim to be Christians, if they claim to be Christians, then you have to go to the elders of the church and of their church and talk to them about it and then go through the process there. That's what I would say. Okay. All right.
Thank you. All right. All right. Have a good day. Okay. You too. Thanks. All right.
Let's get to mode from Utah. All right. Welcome.
You're on. Hey, hi Mark. Thank you. Uh, I just have a comment.
How are you today? I just have a comment from sending having your kids in church. I always have my kids having your children with you.
Okay. My point of view and my experience, they should have key. Not only Jesus said, let the children come to me and you know the verse, but what I realized, I'm not, you know, bragging for my kids, but my kids behave so well at school. And when they are asking them, you know, why they're always saving and answer questions, do what they have to do. They said that the same thing we do at church, because at church I teach them how to have respect and revenge for God. And so all the people were talking and my kids will never run in church. I said, in church, it's not a place you run. You don't eat in church. You don't run in church. So they walk in church. If they are hungry, they will go outside, but to where they can eat something.
And I, to me, it's fine. If you have your kids in church and then for some reason, something happened, that kid is crying quietly, take the kid out, comfort the kid. And when everything is resolved, come back to church because many kids, they have special program for them until they are 18. And after 18, they don't know what to do. They don't know how to behave. They don't know how to replace their parents at church because they have never seen how they do it. So I believe if they have seen how it's done, they know they will be the next one. They will be taught. They will understand. Some kids don't know how to pray for someone. Well, let me get in there a little bit.
Okay. So I agree that I like the idea of children being in church. I think it's a good thing for them to experience what's going on.
And that's wise. However, my complaint and the complaint of a lot of people is that parents aren't minding their children in churches so that the children then become disruptive of others. And that's the problem. And it's the parent's fault. Now, occasionally, a kid's going to act up.
We get that. But generally speaking, the parents have bought into this, you know, Johnny, I told you to stop it. I told you to stop it.
I told you to stop it 15 times. And the kid learns not to trust what the parent says because the parent repeats himself so many times. And there's no consequence to action. So the children learn how to become disrespectful and out of control in a church environment. And so they ruin it for other people. And someone like me who's got hearing problems, I can't process too many sounds. And when I'm focusing on listening to a sermon, if there's a lot of distractions of noises of children, I can't pay attention. I have to leave.
I'm not complaining and whining. That's just a problem I have. And so I'm not able to do that. So I'm a little bit more sensitive to that than most. But still, even my wife, who doesn't have that problem, agrees to go to churches. And we can't even enjoy the service because sometimes the children are just out of control and the parents don't seem to care. Now, you seem to care.
You seem like you've got your kids under good discipline and control. But I got a question for you. What's your accent? I like your accent.
What is it? I'm from Haiti. Haiti? I'm from Haiti.
I speak French, yes. And, you know, in Haiti, we have what we call church offices. And they will be like Asher. And they are just for kids. If a kid is not behaving, the officer will come for you. And it's okay for the officer to speak my kids. It's my kids because they want to behave. It's a different culture, but it works.
Yep, I can relate to that. We had a group of people that, when I lived in San Diego, that were like-minded parents. And each parent could discipline the child of another parent. But under the right circumstances. It wasn't just casual. It was under the right circumstances.
And they always go to the parents first and things like that. And it was really good because the children minded. And they were fine. They were fine. Everything was fine. They were fine, yes. They were fine.
That's right. So good for you. Yes, because many people, they have their kids. And then when the kids growing up, they reach to the point, they say they are going to church.
Why is there a kid? Oh, they are in pain. Come to the game. Why they are not going to church? Well, they don't go to church that much. It's like, who is going to replace you at church? It's sad.
Yeah, it is. Well, I don't know if you're going to be in the Provo area. I'll be down there on March 2nd preaching. And I heard you at that church. It's at Church Hill, something like that.
Yeah, city on a hill in Provo. Don't know where you are in Utah. But anyway, no big deal. But you know, stop by if you want. You can say hi.
Yeah, you can. I will jump by. I will jump. I'm not far away from Provo. Okay. I'll be in Sandy. Thank you.
Okay. Oh, I work in Sandy. I'm coming to work.
I'm on my way. And I parked my car just to make a comment. Oh, okay. Yeah, I've got a friend in Sandy. And I stay there. And then I just go down to Provo when I preach and things like that.
So it's a nice area. Okay. All right. Okay. Thank you for taking my call. Hey, thank you for calling.
Love your accent. All right. God bless.
All right. Let's get to Matt from North Carolina. Matt, welcome.
You're on the air. Yes, sir. My question, Mr. Slick, is I've heard a man say this the other day about when the transgenders come to the point that they realize that they've kind of been deceived, they've been deceived, and they're going to want to come back to the church.
I believe that as well. Well, they've repented and they've came back. But and we have people that are Can you hear me, sir? Yeah, yeah, you broke up a little bit. But I'm sorry.
We have Democrats that are sitting in our church that are helping to deceive them. And it seems like how should I how should I feel about that? Well, in my mind? Yes, sir.
I'm not sure I know what you're asking. You're saying Christians who are Democrats is a problem? Because I would agree.
I'm saying that I do agree completely. And as in Republicans, how do I deal with a person that is a Democrat in the church? What I would do, what I would do is go to calm and look up history of the Democratic Party. And there's an article there and you can print stuff up. And you can point things out about what the Democratic Party stands for. It has supported the KKK, abortion, homosexuality, and socialism.
Christians should not be supporting any of that. Hold on, we'll be right back. Okay, folks, we'll be right back after these messages.
Please stay tuned. It's Matt Slick live taking your calls at 877-207-2276. Here's Matt Slick. Welcome back to the show, everybody. All right, let's get back on with Matt from North Carolina. Welcome, buddy. You're on the air. Hey. Yes, sir.
I appreciate your advice. I just would like to build up my defense of that because I've heard several things on homosexuality. And I believe that I used to be one that would get very aggressive in my argument. And I'd rather be more persuasive. Well, this is what I'm trying to say is that with me being argumentative, it's possibly the same as sitting there supporting the Democratic Party helping to destroy people. And then, you know, we have... Well, look, here's the thing. When you talk to your Christian friends who are misguided enough to believe that the Democratic Party is actually a good party, I don't support the Republican Party either.
They're just mainly rhinos. But, you know, just the documentation that it supports homosexuality, abortion, socialism, and they're the party, the KKK, they're the party that developed the Jim Crow laws, and it's all documented. And I would say to them, are you aware of the history of the Democratic Party, what it stood for? And they'll say one thing. See, what happens is the Democratic Party, in my opinion, is full of liars, flat out lying deceivers. Because what they'll do is they take someone else's problem, or they take their own problems, excuse me, that they've created, and then blame the other people for it. And they accuse everybody of racism, accuse everybody of wrongdoing when they're the guilty party. This has been well documented from the Democratic Party. And you should get the book, Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
But you don't have to get it. But because you could go to my website, and I've outlined the rules for radicals book. And you can just read through in just a couple three minutes what the basic principles are in this book that is used by people to force a culture and a political culture system to change so that they can get the minority to be in control. And, for example, with homosexuality, what you do, what their procedure was, was to cause it to be talked about no matter what. Always get it in the public eye. Do whatever is necessary to get the public eye because people become desensitized to it. Once they're desensitized, then you start protesting and making demands.
And then once they get used to that, you keep pushing and pushing and pushing. And now it's getting to the point, which I've been saying for years, for example, that the Democratic Party and the pro-homosexual LGBTQ alphabet mafia stuff is going to become the oppressors of Christians. It's going to become oppressive to Christians. If you don't approve a homosexual marriage, now you're guilty. See, they have no tolerance or full of hypocrisy. These are the kind of things that you got to point out and let them know about. Aren't they trying to pass a bill to make it a hate crime to marry if you don't marry homosexuals? Yeah, I don't know if that is the case. I just don't know what, I haven't heard the documentation yet or haven't seen it. I actually tried to.
And Stu Epperson, he put that ad out here and was like, oh, I got to check that out. So I want to verify it. And I haven't been able to, because I just got so much to do.
It's just hard to find stuff. But you know, I want to find out. I appreciate your time. And I listen to you all the time. I appreciate everything that you do. And I will look into all those things, create myself a way to put this across in a loving way. Thank you.
There you go. And also go to the karm.org. I think you can go to let me check it. Let me see karm.org forward slash government. Let's see if it forwards where I want it to forward to. Yes, it does.
And it talks about what is socialism and the 45 goals of communism, which you might want to get into as well. Because in those 45 goals, you'll see that the Democratic Party is working hand in hand and to do those and to do those things. Absolutely. Absolutely. And they're there.
Yeah. And so it's just pathetic. In fact, you know, I'll make a comment here that, you know, I'm not a genius. But I know what it means to think critically. And I've noticed over the years that fewer and fewer people, particularly those who are young, fewer and fewer can think critically. There are some who can. But I am amazed at how incapable so many people are of understanding basic facts and how to put them together. And they vote. And they vote because they're mouth breathers.
You know, whatever the liberal news media says is simply the truth. They don't think. This is too much of a problem here in America. Our schools have been dumbed down so that critical thinking is not to be done.
In fact, my wife did the study on this and I didn't know that she informed me that in the 1800s, people in order to get into college took their entrance exams, I think it was either in Greek or Latin, to get into college. And I think that's pretty accurate. And so now, oh, that's impossible. They couldn't do that.
It's impossible. So we're not being taught. We're being dumbed down so they could be led. Well, and then I also, I mean, this is just my comment of that is that I also believe that they don't go along and try to find out because their own won't make them say, I'm not going, I'm not able to look into that.
You know, this will mess up everything I want to do with myself. And then I think that's the deception that they all have. And now it's led us, like you said, it's led us from acceptance to let's change marriage to now we don't even know what a boy and girl are. Right. Yep.
That's what it is. Thank you so much, Mr. Slick. And I'll be listening to you. I appreciate you very much. Okay. Well, God bless, buddy. God bless.
All right. I would suggest folks, you go to the CARM website, look up the 45 goals of CARM communism. Look at number 17, get control of the schools, use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum, get control of teachers associations, put the party line in textbooks, infiltrate the press, get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expressions. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship and the violation of free speech and free press. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy, promiscuity as normal, natural, and healthy. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with social religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize a need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a religious crutch. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of separation of church and state. Discredit the American constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
I can go on and on. This is what the 45 goals of communism are. You should read them and see how many of those are in effect now. This means our country is going to fall. Christians, wake up, because once it falls, they're going to come after us, okay?
They're not going to stop at a Sunday morning door at your church or at your house. They're going to come for you, okay? Let's get to, let's see, Boyle, wow, from Louisiana. Welcome, you're on the air. Hey, Matt, this is Bojo.
Bojo. Oh, I can't see all of the letters. I can only see the top segments of them, so I got it wrong. Okay, go ahead. No, that's fine, that's fine.
Yeah, I'm in Pineville, Louisiana. I was listening to you talk about, you know, critical thinking, and I guess I may be too critical, but I was wondering what you thought about people that had the mind of Christ. That means to be godly. The mind of Christ is to put Christ in his position of lordship and as God and for us to be humble and servants of the Lord and reaching out and being kind and loving and truthful, things like that. That's what it means. Yeah, well, Jesus, I mean, Paul wrote, didn't Paul say that he had the mind of Christ?
I believe so. Let's see, mind of Christ, and it occurs in 1 Corinthians 2.16, for who has known the mind of the Lord that he will instruct him, but we have the mind of Christ. And that's the only place that I see it in the NASB that it occurs in 1 Corinthians 2.16.
Okay. Well, you don't find a whole lot of people with the mind of Christ because those people with the mind of Christ are like Christ and they're in tune with God and they're being revealed things by God. Could that be, wouldn't that fit the bill there?
Well, I'm not going to say yes or no because the phrase only occurs right there. And without broader context or multiple usages, I can't determine with much accuracy exactly what that means. Generally speaking, the mind of Christ would be to emulate his teachings and his attitudes. That would be the mind of Christ, I guess.
Well, he said we have the mind of Christ and I believe that he, I believe he's indicating that they were maybe apostles or prophets that have been filled with the Holy Spirit and that God spoke to them and through them. Okay. Like I said, the phrase is not used enough in different contexts to narrow down what it means. So I don't say this is exactly what it means. I say generally this seems to be what it is. Okay.
Yeah. Well, I mean, yeah, yeah, I understand that, but it could mean, I think that if you are as critical a thinker as you can be, I mean, it could mean that these that have the mind of Christ have the Spirit of God in them and they're in communication and they're one. Could that, could that possibly happen? I'm not sure because when you say possibly happen, possibly happen when people talk like that and such generalities, there's yeses and no's that go into aspects of what they're saying. I like to, you know, say, well, there's possibilities that we have to discuss them. So, but like I said, the phrase only occurs once that I'm seeing in the NSP and I can't tell you what it means exactly. Okay.
Hmm. Or I was, I say, yeah, that's fine. But, uh, anyway, thank you for letting me, uh, okay. Interact with you and I am going to go, I'm in Pineville, Louisiana.
Can I, I'll check with you again. All right. All right.
Well, God bless Bojo. Thanks for calling, buddy. Appreciate it. All right. That's Bojo from Louisiana. Alex from Florida. Sorry, buddy.
Take your medicine and call back tomorrow. All right. Hey folks. There we are.
We're out of time. May the Lord bless you. I'll be on a clubhouse and club deck, whichever one you want to use tonight at 9 PM Eastern time answering questions.
Hey, God bless. Talk to you tomorrow. See you. Bye.
