This is the Truth Network. Monday through Friday, Matt takes calls from all around the world on his radio show. We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top Six.

Number six. I am in a small Christian businesswoman study group, just a gathering of Christian women on Zoom, and it's taking a direction where the leader wants to take us into the courts of heaven. The way I understand it is that there's still judicial court operating in heaven and that Satan still has access to those heavenly court and that our sin gives him a right to us and that as we enter the court, Jesus is there to be our advocate, but we are still there to admit to the sin that Satan brings against us so that God can bless us. I cannot find anything in the Bible that support us having to go into the courts of heaven like this. And I just want to make sure that my understanding of Bible is correct.

You are correct. What you have to do is you have to ask her, show me that in scripture. And if she can't show it to you in scripture, then you have to ask publicly because she's teaching it publicly. Say, well, why would you teach this if it's not in the Bible? We had a meeting this morning and I just excuse myself. I just said, this is not biblical.

I cannot do this. And she asked me to pray about it. And I told her, I said, this is not where the Bible is leading us. She's wrong. You are right. Okay. This is courts of heaven stuff.

Well, it's a load of crap. Number five. I was wondering if you had any words to the encouragement or advice for somebody who is dying. Well, all I can say is, is if I was in that position, my hope and my trust would be my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. And that he would be with me during that time. And that by his grace, could he use me to witness to others, even in that, that's what I would be praying. That's what I have prayed over the years. And when my death comes, if it's not unexpected, you know, if I'm going to linger a while, that God would allow me to be used to praise his name in the process.

That's what I would do. Number four. Our church, they don't allow a woman to hold that position, but they will allow them to come in and preach. They're violating scripture. It's pastor was saying that I'm focusing on something that's not really relevant enough to make a lot of noise about it. So I guess you shouldn't really focus on what Paul, the apostle said to end Timothy and how he was giving instructions for how the church is to behave. So obviously you shouldn't be focusing on that because you got more important things to do than do what Paul said needs to be done in the Christian church. So your pastor needs to repent and he needs to come to truth in this issue of Christian theology. The Bible clearly says a woman is not to teach or exercise authority over a man, but are being silent for Adam was first created. The pulpit on a Sunday morning is the place of authority and teaching.

Number three. My pastor had mentioned that we were all aware of when we were saved. And I don't recall where I was. I just know that I had the Lord in me and I, you know, I walk with him and I'm just wondering why I'm not aware of that. That's okay.

Some people when they become saved is by a gentle wooing and drawing from the Lord where others like myself, boom, it was a very monumental event. And I remember it clearly, you know, if I were preaching and I would never say we all know that day. No, we don't.

Number two. As a Marine, we tend to look at things in overwhelming destruction of the enemy. What would you say is the most violent force against the demonic kingdom?

What would you, what would you grab as the most destructive weapon that you can? Probably go with prayer personally. I want God to fight. I want God to do. I want God to move and I want to be in his will so that in prayer, my heart and my mind are changed so that I become what he wants me to be. And that I believe is best done in the very presence of the almighty in prayer. James 1 verses two, three, and four. Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that testing of your faith produces endurance and that endurance have its perfect result so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

When we encounter various trials for one, it's because of what God has allowed to come into our lives. I'll tell you what happened with our son. At the time that my wife and I lost our son Jacob, he had a birth defect and I was making almost no money.

And not that money is a big deal, it is and it isn't depending on circumstances, but I was making below the poverty line. And I remember getting word and having to have someone drive me to where my wife was. She had the car for the medical situation. Sorry, it's coming back to me. And we are sitting there and she's to my right and the lady said, she gave us the bad news, said he'll probably die shortly after birth.

And if he lives, he won't be very viable as we say. And she offered abortion. And I'm so proud of my wife.

She instantly said, don't ever bring that up again. We're never going to have born a baby. My wife's faith was in Christ, not the circumstances, not our lack of money or having only one car, a son who's going to pass away. We endured through that trial. God provided people and He provided things. A woman who had helped someone else go through the exact same birth defect, which was one in 15,000 and knew somebody who did the exact same thing and prepared us for it. We didn't even have money, have enough money for a tombstone. And then a man appeared, he was sitting street close and he waited for the funeral to be over. And he handed me a check for a thousand dollars, just enough to pay for the headstone and the funeral costs. God provided what we needed and our faith just flourished because it wasn't in our circumstances.

It was in our Lord and our savior, but knows sometimes just as he had to go through things, he had to go through his trials. We do too. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top 6.
