It's Matt Slick Live!

Matt is the founder and president of the Christian Apologetics Podcast. If you would like all of this and how to view climate change propaganda, use of control, technologically induced narcissism, attack and masculinity, disarming the citizens. Those are just some of the things that, you know, I'm just taking a paragraph of what are some of the issues that we're facing here in our country. And I was really surprised at the variety of things that are there. And there's more that I could add to this stuff, but I think that's going to be pretty insufficient. I'll polish it up.

If you have any other things that you want to, you know, give to me, that's fine. And I'm thinking about producing either an article and or a video related to this issue. Because if you think about it, man, oh man, our country is just messed up. So here's a question for you guys. Do any of you trust our government?

Now this is a simple question. Do you trust our politicians personally? I have no trust in them. I have no faith in them. I don't. You know, I'm talking about the politicians in Washington. Now that's just my opinion. I wouldn't trust them anymore and I could throw an elephant.

And I don't trust the process. I think there's insider trading. I know that they're becoming millionaires. They hold their offices forever. They have power. They have influence. They're obviously not doing things in the best interest of the country.

That's obvious. So what do you say? Are you trusting them too? Now this isn't a show about politics, but I'm just saying this is one of the things that is just bad that we can't even trust, or at least I don't, I don't know how many of you out there don't trust the government anymore. Don't trust them. That's not good.

That's not good. And we had some friends over the weekend and we got talking about all of this and one of them made a comment that, I think it was, I don't know who it was, who said it, maybe some of you could find me that quote, who said it so I can reference it. The last throws of a dying society is when the politicians raid the treasury.

And I'm seeing that. The politicians pass laws that they're exempt from, but we have to pay taxes on them. And then they just increase their own salaries and then they have power. They know what laws to pass that will affect what companies and they'll buy stocks in these companies.

They're gaining power, they're gaining money. So these are some of the things and then the LGBTQ and the issue of sexuality. And that to me is really, really an interesting topic. Just the idea of gender fluidity, what that means. You can be whatever gender you want. You can have any identity you want. You can define women any way you want or men. There are, I don't know how many supposed genders there are now. It's just stupid.

And it's actually taken seriously. I watched some videos over the weekend where people are talking about their identity and how we must, we must address them by their chosen pronouns. You have to. If you don't, you're doing violence. The intolerance and the bigotry. Why am I talking about all this? Because it reminds me of what the scripture says and how things are going to get bad. So anyway, that's what I did over the weekend, among other things, you know, talking about the gospel and defending the Christian faith. And so, yeah, it's kind of depressing, isn't it?

It's like, woo hoo hoo. So but I'm going to do something, you know, information thing about it and talk and see if you have any other information you want to get beyond that, just email me at info at and if you want to ask a question for today, info at We talked about theology. In fact, was it Friday night?

I think someone asked me to, I was in the chat room, or Saturday night, I forgot which, to go over the nature of the Trinity as it relates to the one and the many. Now, you know, I noticed we're getting calls in, but they're not lasting. They're hanging up. So I'm wondering if we're having phone problems. So maybe one of you guys in the chat could call the number, 877-207-2276, see if there's a problem. It looks like something's going on. And I've seen the calls come in and out.

So I don't know. Let me just jump on this call. Oh, I guess it is working. All right. Let me just jump on right on here.

Let's see. I don't know who you are, but you're on the air with, with Matt Slick. So what do you got? Hey, how you doing? I'm doing okay. Hang in there, man.

What do you got, man? Well, it's the first time I ever called and you're asking whether or not you trust the government earlier. And you know, while I was a soldier, it was kind of like I had to, you know what I mean? The military did so many great things for me, you know, but you know, there's a lot of, I don't want to call it brainwashing, but it does steep in over time. But as far as what's going on these days and everything, I definitely don't, you know, I don't feel like individuals are the individuals in Congress and the different individuals in power.

I think anytime you really combine humans and power, you get corruption and I just hope and say that as a collective, they might come to a good decision, you know, is all I pray for. Right. Yeah.

I agree. And my dad was in the service. He was in the army. No, no.

He was in the Navy in World War II, the army in Korea and the air force in Vietnam, believe it or not. Wow. Oh yeah.

Wow. And I grew up on military bases. So I'm very comfortable being on a military base, you know, going to the PX and the commissary. I mean, those were, you know, it's just, it's almost like a little bit fakie, isn't it?

Yeah, it is. And so I'm comfortable with it and I thought it was a lot of good order and it was safe on base, but, you know, aside from that, and thank you for your service, I do, you know, I thank all the military. I do. Thank you for your service.

But a guy called me a year ago. I was blessed to serve. What's that? Proud to serve? I was blessed to serve. I got lucky. It got in. Good for you.

Well, thanks. So I talked to a guy a while back and he told me, and he says he did not want his name given or anything like this, but he told me that the conservative officers were being pushed out and they were putting in place in places of power in the military officers who were leftist and had a socialist agendas, which I found to be interesting, but he said it was happening a lot. I don't know if you've seen that. Well, to be honest, it was, it was starting on my way out. Um, you know, we were starting to have briefings where there were certain things I wasn't allowed to say to soldiers, you know, like stuff I wouldn't say on the radio, but like you weren't allowed to make any kind of homosexual references and cadences, you know, things of this nature. You couldn't hurt their feelings anymore. And it was like, wow, you want me to train them to take them somewhere where people want to be had them, but I can't hurt their feelings to prepare them, you know, and, um, it was, it was starting to really integrate to that as I was on my way out and I was really relieved to be on my way out as far as, you know, because it was going to be really restricted and being in combat and, you know, and so my, my female soldiers are some of the best soldiers I had, you know, we got a break, we got a break, buddy.

I want to hear what you had to say. Okay. So hold on. We'll be right back with the female soldiers being good soldiers. Hey folks.

So we have three open lines. If you want to give me a call 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. Welcome back to the show. Thank you very much for paying attention, for listening and for joining us today.

Hope you had a great weekend. Let's see, let's get back on the air and I forgot your name, but anyway, you were saying Paul. Tom.

Okay. Paul. Paul. Got you.

Paul. All right. Well, uh, okay. So you were saying you were, you know, when you're fighting, the female soldiers were good soldiers.

Right? Well, we were in transportation and they were great soldiers and, uh, you know, but, or I don't want to say anything bad ever about female soldiers, but it, it, it, it brings bringing just that having in the situation brings other complications in combat. Um, you know, somebody's in love with that girl. Definitely. You know, somebody in the troop loves her and if she's hurting wounded and she's screaming, it changes the whole scenario. Um, you know, because that, you know, that's somebody's girlfriend that's hurt.

It just is different on young men's minds. They definitely belong with us in combat, but like the way they were starting to integrate different things like the LGBTQ stuff and like bringing, you know, different genders and fluid genders into the service and everything, you know, was a huge concern for me as a, you know, Sergeant training people and having to take people places of their stability and their mental health, where they were grounded, you know, um, those are my main concerns with it. Yeah.

Yeah. I need to do more research on that aspect of it, uh, to see how it will affect the military. And that's a, I believe a problem because we want the military to be strong, capable and not distracted by internal, uh, conflicts and issues.

So yeah, but, uh, yeah, you know, so anyway, just a comment, you know, uh, as I've been doing stuff, the reason I've been researching this, it's actually an interesting thing that one thing led to another, to another, to another. I believe the Christian church is weak and I believe we have great power also. And I believe the Christian church is not doing what it needs to be doing and what it can be doing in society because the men aren't doing what they need to be doing. That's my position. And so I started thinking about this.

I've been thinking about it for a long time. Why is it that the men aren't as strong as they need to be? Not domineering and mean, but come on, standing up for righteousness. And uh, and so I started thinking, well, society is attacking men and uh, and it's promoting women and it's creeping into the church. So I've been thinking about this for a long time and I started wondering, well, what is going on in society that's having this deleterious effect on masculinity and the effect in the church?

That led me to other issues of thinking. I've been thinking about this for months and months and months, the state of society as it views men and it's a very negative view, toxic masculinity, but you don't hear about toxic femininity. You hear about patriarchy, but not matriarchy. You always hear the negatives about men and men hear this and I think that they're becoming wimped and they're not sure what to do. And with the feminist, the radical feminist movement where equality is over quality, equality of outcome rather than quality and excellence.

And men aren't sure what to say, what they can say, so it really puts them on the defense of a great deal. And then when you see movies, you know, pay attention to the movies. I don't even go to these movies anymore where they've got the women heroines. It's not because I don't think women can be heroines. My favorite movie of all time is Aliens, the second one, and Sigourney Weaver is the heroine. And I've seen the movie literally 70 times, I keep count, 70, it's my favorite movie.

She did a fantastic job and that's, you know, but she had all the qualities of being a female and, you know, loved Newt and had all this stuff, she was great. But now, and in the movie of Aliens, for example, the men weren't wimps except the commander guy he kind of was. But that's it. Well, now you see these movies and men are just outdone by females and females beat up guys like it's nothing. I'm like, give me a break.

And guys know this, but not to say anything. This has got me going. Well, that led me to the issue of setting feminism. That led me to the promiscuity issue and sexuality issues, which has now led me to... So it's just become one of these roads with a lot of different forks I'm taking as I'm studying all this, that's why.

I believe it's for men today that are trying to protect rights, because even in their own homes, it's an uphill battle. There's a lot of outside influences. I have a 16-year-old daughter, you know, who gets most of her opinions from TikTok and I have to, you know, just try to set a good example and do what I can and hope for the best, you know. You know, I've got daughters, three daughters, and once my wife, all of us were home, you know, and I was looking around the world, the living room, and all of them were on phones. And you know, so I texted them, what are you guys doing?

Because I'm sitting right there with them, you know, and, you know, it's okay. This represent the whole time, but it, you know, the phones are and stuff. It's a huge influence. And how do we deal with that? And you're right.

As a man, you've got to be a good example, but you can't be mean to take your phones and, you know, run them over in the car, but you're right. It's a huge influence. And the stuff they're saying is stupid.

No, don't get me started on that. I took my daughter's phone from her and she called social services. Like, it got that bad, but, you know, I would do, I'd say, you know, I'd say you call social services, they can take you away then. That's okay.

Oh yeah, it was, uh, you know, it was, it had to jump through a few hoops. You can go, you can take them. You want to do that.

You want to become, because essentially it's a brown shirt. They're going to turn you in because you don't have a, you can't get your phone. You try and exercise discipline and guidance in the home.

And then they call, so to speak, the authorities on you. I would say, that's your choice. You're going to have to live with it. You go, you're fine, go out.

And when you're ready to come back, if you want to, that's fine. I'm not going to jump through any hoops. I'm not going to do this. I would be, that'd be it. I'd settle the law down. That's it.

That's what you want. It was a fun, and I didn't even get a whole nother conversation going, but it's a very fine line because my mother is a professor, a sociology professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. And, um, let's just say, you know, uh, as far as radical feminism goes, she was one of their main leaders, you know, so it's better off to have her here. I knew a guy, get this, I knew a guy, this is the kind of thing that's so unfair and it attacks on masculinity and people hear about this and I'll say it and people will hear about it. I have a good friend I've known for many years, a very godly man. And he, uh, he and his first wife got divorced and he wasn't a Christian at the time. He's now a very godly man with his, with his second wife and she's a godly woman. And we've known her for years and years.

Okay. So he told me in his first marriage that his first wife, uh, accused him of bad stuff with a daughter. He just, just the accusation, he swore up and down before the Lord, he goes, it never happened. She just made the accusation, just that. And because of it, he had to spend a lot of money to defend himself.

He had to go through counseling for two years before he would be allowed to really visit his daughter again, just because she made the accusation. And then at the end of the two years, the psychologist switched and they had a new psychologist said, you got to start over. And he said, I'm done.

This happens all the time. Hey, we've got to go buddy. There's the music. Okay. All right. Hey folks, three open lines, 877-207-2276 see, all this is important because we live in a real world. We'll be right back. It's Matt Slick live, taking your calls at 877-207-2276. Here's Matt Slick.

Everybody. Welcome back to the show. If you want to give me a call, we have two open lines, 877-207-2276. Let's get the mic from, let's see, I think you're from North Carolina. Hey, welcome. You're on the air. Yeah.

Hey Matt. I talked to you before about this topic of several months ago, which has to do with our currency system. I can't call it money because it's not money. Okay. I heard you talking about all the problems that we're having to deal with in this country. We have to admit that if the source of a lot of those problems is the size of our government, right?

Yeah. It's huge and bloated and Washington has become this monster. It's like an octopus.

It's swallowing everything up. The only reason that Washington can be the way it is, is because we have a dishonest monetary system. We have a monetary system. I don't know how a monetary system is dishonest. People are dishonest, but it's an interesting system. So what are we going to say about it?

Well, first of all, it violates the Bible. I mean, there's like eight passages in the Bible that talks about diverse weights and measures and money or currency in this case is a measure. It's a measure of value. So today you go to the grocery store and eggs are a dollar 50 a dozen. Two weeks later, they're $2 and 25 cents a dozen.

And then there are $5 a dozen. That doesn't make any sense. The fact, I mean, that inflation is caused, that type of inflation is caused by a government that's allowed to create currency because it's not money, it's currency, create currency out of nothing. Actually, it creates that out of debt.

That's what creates our, and I'm encouraging Christian. It's unbiblical too, absolutely, because we're not supposed to go into debt biblically and there's reasons for it. You become slave to the master who owns their debt. But our currency system is such that it requires debt because without debt, the currency wouldn't exist. In other words, if everybody, the government and every person and every corporation in America paid off all of their debts, there would be no currency in circulation, none, zero. It would disappear. Do you have a question about this?

Well, the question I have is, do Christians understand, have the novice understand that first of all, how it relates to the Bible and how it relates to their lives? Because we have a crisis coming down the pike. I've been predicting this for years. I'm Michael Winston-Salem and anybody that hears my voice knows who I am, that I've been telling people we're headed for a hyperinflationary depression. We are headed towards a collapse of our currency system and it is going to destroy, it's destroying people.

People that are on fixed income now are hurting terribly. But that's what allows all of the evils that you see circulating around, a lot of it has to do with government and the bureaucracy. And the only reason that can exist is because the government can create currency out of nothing. That's how they pay for it. And people are heading to do it, get away with it. And then there's the issue of, can you vote them out and how many trust our elections? Because I don't. I don't trust them anymore.

I don't either. So here's the thing. What do we do as Christians?

That's what we got to talk about is what we do as Christians. Right. We have to go back to biblical money, which is in our constitution.

The constitution says that the government cannot print paper money without it being backed by something. Yeah. Gold standard. And they're off. They have nothing. Right. So, so that's what the constitution says. So we have to have, we got to, we have to go back. We have to go back to our currency system. That takes care of it. That takes care of a lot of problems.

I got you. But the thing is, we can't do anything. We're just talking to radio about it. There's nothing we can do about it. We need to get these people out of office and that's not going to happen either.

So what we need to be doing is just praying and asking God to change people's hearts. And we need to be voting appropriately. We need to do what's necessary in order to hopefully ensure that our votes count and there's not manipulation. That's what we need. That's what, you know, that's what we get to do.

We're aware of the problem. That's what has to happen. If you go back to sound money, if you go back to sound money, which is gold and silver, which is what God gave us to use as money, that's, that's in the Bible.

Um, uh, the first purchase was Abraham when he purchased the, the, the field to bury Sarah and with 400 shekels of silver. That's what we need to use. That's what the constitution says is supposed to be our monetary system, but we don't. That's been, I understand.

I got you. So what do you want to do about it? What do we have to do about it? That's the thing we can describe the problem, but we have to make sure that we know what we're doing. What are we going to do? We need to get those people elect.

We need to push people into office that are going to return us to a sound monitor. That has to be one of the key, that's one of the key issues because that's the center of it all. That's the focal point because prior, okay, I gotcha. Okay. Hold on.

Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike. I gotcha. Okay. But you know, now we're just talking, you're just going and I get you, we need to be able to do something, but I'm trying to make people aware of problems. And, and so in different areas, what we Christians need to do is to be praying because we have to ask, we have to ask God to raise up godly people. It's going to take time and we need to have people who are going to be in offices who are going to seek God's will and not their own. And we've got to pray about this.

We need to be aware and you're right. They're not doing the monetary thing the way the constitution says because they don't take the constitution seriously anymore. We have people who are in power who are doing their own thing and not upholding the constitution that they swore to do.

So they're liars and hypocrites. What do we do about it? We start preaching and teaching about this occasionally in the church, we start praying, we started voting people and we start, uh, warring against the liberal idiocy that's going on. That's what we have to do.

So yeah. And Christians need to protect themselves against what's coming down the road. For inflation, which means my suggestion is that people put something into gold or silver. I like silver better because you're going to see prices explode, but in terms of gold and silver prices are going to collapse. People complain about the price of oil.

I'll give you an example. Price of the price of gasoline is $3 a gallon. The male value. When I was a kid, gasoline was 25 cents a gallon. Well, I can take it, but it was silver quarters. It was a silver quarter.

I can take a silver quarter today and get about four bucks for it, which means the price of gasoline is cheaper today than it was when I was a kid in terms of silver, in terms of the, because that is what protects you. I gotcha. Mike. I gotcha. I gotcha, brother. I gotcha. Okay. Um, and so there's a lot of problems. I know you are.

I know you are. And so what we need to do is come up with something as Christians. And what I try and do when we talk about these kinds of things is inform Christians, and I agree with you. You need to prepare. I tell people they should be prepping because there's going to come a collapse because the company, the country can't sustain this kind of inflation and sending trillions, billions and billions overseas and then opening our borders and being invaded from the south.

And then the finances have to go out to take care of them, which is a slap in the face of the citizenry who work hard. And so this causes distrust. It causes problems that we need to be made aware of this as Christians. And so, you know, I'm a theologian and we're having to talk about this more and more. It's coming up more and more.

And I'm not an expert on politics, but I'm learning. But theologically speaking, what I'm trying to do is find out what the underlying biblical principles are to solve it. And biblically, what are the problems that have created it? And if we can deal with those, then we can start from the Christian perspective. We can start doing what's necessary to fix the problem from within the Christian church. We've got to start with ourselves and our own Christian church and then move out. And we need to be out there.

We need to raise up people who are going to be in government, who are more afraid of God than they are of their fellow Democrat or Republican people down the hallway. So this is what we need to have. So, okay.

I use God's word to show people how violating God's word teaches us disaster. Absolutely. And one more thing in the whole history of money, people need to read about the history of money and understand it in the whole history of this has happened thousands of times over and over and over. It led to the destruction of the Roman Empire.

It collapsed because of hyperinflation and Diocletian. I mean, this is a, it's okay. I gotcha. I gotcha. Yeah. I gotcha. I'm with you. Okay. Okay.

I know about it and it's bad. So what are we going to do? I'm trying to tell people what to do and I do believe they should start prepping. They should start getting food stores and, and I agree with you.

Silver's better than gold because you can, you know, one silver, one silver coin you can exchange for bread and whatever, but a silver coin, it's just too expensive. You can't break it down and work with it. So yeah, and this is a lot, sounds alarmist, but these are just, uh, as Jesus says, you know that the, when the storm's coming, don't you know this and don't you know that? Be ready. Pay attention. And I'm just doing my godly duty to inform people and stuff like that. Okay.

What do you do? We've got to go. There's a break, buddy. There's a break. So we've got to get going. All right. We'll talk to you later, man.

God bless. Hey folks, three open lines. Call 877-207-2276.

Be right back. It's Matt Slick live, taking your calls at 877-207-2276. Here's Matt Slick.

Everybody. Welcome back to the show. Let's get to Ron for North Carolina. Ron, welcome. You're on the air. Hi, Matt. Hey. Um, I got a question.

Hey. Um, so my question is, can the devil place evil thoughts in Christian's minds? I don't know. Now, when I say I don't know, I mean it, uh, that the Bible doesn't say yes, doesn't say no.

We don't know anything in the scriptures that seems to address it, but we do know that the devil moved, uh, David to number Israel. So there can be an influence, but we don't know if it's a thought that gets in your mind. Uh, in my novel, the influence, I took a little bit of literary license and this is just, you know, it's literally licensed fiction and I have demonic forces that can only do this with unbelievers where they put their hands or their clawed hands on their chests to see if they're indwelt by God and if they're not, then they can take their hands and they can tweak their brains, their minds, and whisper into their ears to get them to do what they want or try and influence them. And this granted, this is just, you know, it's just literary device.

So I'm not going to do anything that's, uh, the Bible forbids or says isn't the case. And that's just, like I said, literature. So can they, I don't know. And sometimes I wonder where does certain thoughts come from?

What the heck was that? So I just don't know. And um, one of the Bible verses I was reading is James 1 14 and it talks about how each person's tempted when they are dragged away from their own evil desires. And so I was thinking, is it possible that Christians cause this evil thought or if they're sliding away from scripture and their walk with Christ, could it be possibly said that based on that verse that Christians are kind of at fault? Well, yeah, you don't need the devil to help you do something bad. It can come up out of our own hearts and minds. So, uh, you know, each one is tempted to, it's carried away by us and enticed by its own lust.

James 1 14. The question then becomes, what can a demonic force do to make it worse? And this gets to a really complicated, uh, kind of an explanation because are there people who are possessed?

Well, yeah. Can possess people be influenced? Of course. Can they be influenced to tempt Christians? It would seem so, you know, so is that possible?

How about just oppressed? What about, uh, do they have any power over the physical realm to cause effects? And so it's a complicated topic to go through and the Bible just doesn't really tell us. So I can't tell you either, you know, wish I could, okay, you know, yeah, that's all right. Okay. Great.

Better answer. Okay. Okay. All right.

Butter. Okay. God bless.

All right. Let's get to Nelson from California. Hey, Nelson. Welcome. You're on the air. Hey, Matt. God bless.

God bless, buddy. Yes. Um, amen.

Amen. I got a question from, um, just a friend of mine. Um, I've been talking to her for a while.

I've been knowing for a while. And, uh, we asked her questions and I just felt like, and I was like, we don't, I don't know. Let me ask you to come on. Let me ask Matt Slick.

He may know the answer. Okay. And so the question is, as in, I forget where, I think it's in James, where it says, um, you confess your, you confess, uh, your sins to the brothers and so that you may be healed and forgiven. That's not what I said.

That's not what I said. That's not in James, right? Well, uh, well, there's, there's Galatians 6, 2, bear one another's burdens, thereby fulfill the law of Christ. And uh, let's see, there's other verses that talk about that, but I'm not sure about James, might be in there. Okay. Yeah.

Well, well, um, the question that he asked was, uh, uh, if he committed a sin and he confessed to God, but James 5, 16, James 5, 16, yes, that's where it is. Uh, sorry. Confess your sins one another, pray for one another so that you may be healed.

The effect of prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Okay. Yes.

That one. Uh, so if he, um, and if he confesses a sin to God and not to his pastor and is convicted to confess it to his pastor, but doesn't, will God still bless him? That was the question. Well, what kind of blessing and what different degrees of blessing, but the answer here is it's a, it's a tough one. Bless him in what way?

Okay. So is he supposed to talk to his pastor about his sins? Nothing in the Bible says he has to. The Bible says to confess your sins one to another doesn't say pastors. Now you certainly can go to a pastor for help. It could be your wife.

It could be your husband. It could be your brother, your sister, your friends, uh, but preferably, uh, Christians. So James 5, 16 says this, uh, confess your sins one to another.

And let's see, Galatians six, two says, uh, bear one another's burdens. So there's a mutuality here in confession and mutual, uh, respect and concern. So you know, if I have a sin against somebody, you know, depending on the situation, I'll either go talk to that person or a lot of times I talk to my wife about things and she's good. She's got a good ear and, uh, she'll give me some advice sometimes or some feedback and I appreciate that.

And sometimes, um, I have gone to pastors, uh, to talk about certain things. So it just depends, you know, if there's any hard and fast rule. Okay. Okay.

Okay. So yeah, cause I wasn't sure the answer, my answer was, well, yeah, God was to bless you, but not the way he would like it, I guess. And he can bless you with some discipline. That's for sure. That's right.

I've been blessed that way a few times. That's right. All right, man. Well, thank you very much. All right, man. God bless.

All right. Now let's get on with Gerard Gerald Gerald from North Carolina. Joe, welcome. You're on the air. Hello. Hello. I did hit the right button, so, uh, he wants to talk about guardian guests, the coming inflation. I'll do it. I'll just leave it.

The phone open. Well, um, and, uh, the Bible talks about this folks about having different sources of income and proverbs. And it talks about the storing up in advance and just being prepped. And then it's a talk about, it's not, you know, sell your house and, and, uh, you know, make a Faraday cage over it and get an underground bomb bunker talking like that. But it's wise to have three to six months worth of supplies in your house and things like that.

So that's what we're talking about. And the Bible says to do that. And so you should do that kind of thing. You should be prepared. I've actually written an article on it. This is a Bible talk about prepping.

I think it's prepping a modern term, but it really comes down to just be prepared and uh, yeah, we should Gerald, are you there? Let's see. Oh, I see. You got disconnected. Let me hang up there.

Just do this over that line. Hey Gerald. Are you there buddy? Can you hear me? Yeah. Now I hear you. All right, man. No problem. Awesome. Um, so yeah. Uh, I was calling because I wanted to ask, uh, so if you have very little money, how could you prep for this upcoming storm?

Well, some of the things you can do is, uh, depending on your situation, I've been studying this now for a couple of years. You can get rice and beans and varying various grains that are in bags. You got to take those bags, however, and put them into containers and you can go to bakeries and say, Hey, do you have any buckets? They were just throwing out and you can get buckets and put them in the buckets because they're more airtight. And then you put them in a freezer and leave them in the freezer for a week.

The reason you do that is because it tends to kill any larvae that are in the, the grains because there's always going to be that in the beans and stuff like that. And so, you know, you can do things, you get flour and, uh, you don't want to vacuum pack too many things, but just stuff like that. The people I've learned, you don't realize that putting things in the freezer for like a week is a very good way and a very easy way to increase the length of the storage of what it is you're, you want to live on later on. Then you have the issue of water and what you could do periodically, just buy a gallon of water here and there, or you can go to the store and get one of those five gallon jugs or whatever, the stackables, and you can get water and they have a shelf life. Sometimes the waters are sealed such that they last for two, three, four, five years. But one of the things you can do also is take a little bit of Clorox bleach, like two drops a gallon or one drop a gallon, something like that, and you can put it in the water and it'll keep it fresh.

It'll taste a little bit bad when you drink it, but it's not going to hurt you. And so there's little things you can do, you know, stuff like that. And I, you know, I would suggest if you can save up and get a little solar panel, you can get it for $40 to $100 and you can charge a phone with them and things like that. And so there's little things you can do. Well, we always start where you're at.

And then you can go to, go ahead. When you start putting things in the freezer, then you wait a week and then you take it out, like wouldn't you, wouldn't there be like condensation and then wouldn't it go bad sooner or no, no. If you put them in like a Ziploc bags, for example, take your stuff, put it in Ziploc bag if you want and then press all the air out as if you can and much as you can and then put it into the freezer. And then once you're, it's been in there for a week, they say three to four days, I always put it in for a week and then take it out, put it into buckets and then just seal the buckets up and put the buckets in a closet where there's not much light.

That's it. And put it in a little tab of date on it and flour and grains, rice will last forever. Not forever, but you know, a long, long time and you can read up on the web about it and it's easy. And I'd also recommend going to a silver, sites that sell silver and get what's called junk silver. Junk silver is still silver like before 1965 and they'll sell it and it becomes a monetary form of exchange should the economy just, let's just say, collapse it all the way, you know.

Everything's gone mad max. Then you can use that kind of a thing. And also bullets are something that are good for trading.

So you know, it's just stuff like that. But for food and water, that's what you want to do. Water is important and you can last three days without it and you can last three weeks without food. So water becomes more important. But storing food is something very easy to do and you can put it in zip lock bags. The zip lock bags aren't perfect because they seep air.

So you can put zip lock bags inside of zip lock bags in a freezer and then store it in the buckets in the last two to five years, things like that, if you keep them in a cool stuff. So I've been learning. I've been learning about stuff, you know, and that's what I've been doing slowly. Yeah, it's not a big deal. So we have enough to last for a while and it's just good advice.

I would do it, even if I didn't think things were going bad, I would just say, this is just smart. Because what if there's a power outage, you know, what do you do? And I'm prepped for that a little bit and got what I need, just enough stuff. That's all.

Nothing big. Well, you get these candles that you get on Amazon and they'll last like seven days and you can cook with them, you know. And because we know that different parts of, oh yeah, just pan over a little brick thing and put a candle underneath it, you can cook. And you know, because different people have had different outages and people don't know this. I'll say this before we get going.

There have been a lot of food processing plants in America that have mysteriously burned down in the past five years, end quote. Yeah. So, yeah, it's happening.

We have one in Oregon, not too far from here, just a few weeks ago. So why is that happening? Just time to prep. That's all.

I could do a show on it. I don't talk about it. I've been prepping and learning, some learning, not going crazy. Just do what we got to do, you know, just make sure that my wife's going to be taken care of and that's all, you know, no big deal. Okay? All right, buddy. All right, man, we're out of here.

Music should be starting already, so I'm going to get going. All right, Gerald. God bless. All right. Hey, folks. Hope you enjoyed the show. It's a different show. I don't know if the music's going to start or if it already has or if you've been on the air right now because it seems a bit longer than normal. But there you go. The Lord will bless you and, by His grace, back on there tomorrow.
