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. The idea of going to a false church where they teach false things, like, for example, Mormonism, or Jehovah's Witnesses, or Roman Catholicism. If you go to a place that teaches a false gospel, a false Christ, a false God, or any combination of those things, or advocates praying to dead people, then to God, these are occult practices and false doctrines. And ultimately, they can open up people to demonic oppression. Because the Bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities of darkness, Ephesians 6-12. So we've got to be very aware that everything that we're doing is a spiritual consequence. But the thing is that these kind of things can be adores for demonic oppression. Outside the gates of Jerusalem was Gehenna.

It was permanent in one sense, but not permanent in another. Of the fires that were burning as the garbage was thrown out there, that's what it was historically. And so Jerusalem, probably in this context, this new Jerusalem, the new city, is probably building on that imagery. They're outside the city. See, and so Jerusalem here in the new city represents heaven, salvation, and the others are outside of that, in that place of fire.

And it's just an analogy. Blessed are those who wash their robes. What does it mean to have a robe? They may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the gates into the city. There's a lot of symbolism here.

Number four. When we die and we meet Jesus for judgment, do we go as we are when we die? Like I'm, you know, I'm a woman. I'm 73. Do we meet him like this or just our spirit? We're not exactly sure what age we're going to be when we get there. I don't think it's going to really make much difference if we die in our 80s. Glorified bodies can be just as nice as a one in their 20s.

So I don't know. Second Corinthians 5-8, which says that to be absent for the body is to be home of the Lord. So the human soul, the human spirit can exist apart from the physical body. But the way God wants things to work is for us to be united with our physical bodies so the spirit can move and exist apart from it. In the resurrection, then we will be in that state of unity in our body. But before that, when we die, it looks like our spirit just goes to be with the Lord and the resurrection has not yet occurred. And so that's what it looks like is the case.

Number three. Am I crazy that I think that God is upset with people? Oh yeah. Yeah.

Yes, he is. Here's some not so encouraging news. All the nations will be gathered against Israel, which means America is going to turn its back on Israel.

Probably we are considered part of the European market and area because of the offspring, so to speak, of England. We're probably going to be joining in with the Antichrist. We're being conditioned for that kind of a thing now by wearing masks, by submitting to shots of vaccine passports. Plus the Bible says there's going to be an apostasy on the Christian church. Second Thessalonians 2-3. So things are going to get tough and we just need to be guarding ourselves, preparing for potential problems and issues. And yet at the same time, be hopeful because God will never forsake us and he's going to leave us.

He's never going to leave us without an answer, without some provision of some way. Number two. What standard have you got that's universally applicable? Because people make the mistake of just assuming that their opinion is true. Homosexuality is okay.

Yeah. Why? Because they have the right to do what they want to do. Who says?

Where do you get that? They look at you. They might think you're crazy. See, wait a minute. You can do what you want to do, right? Well, that means you go out and rob a bank and that's okay. Well, no, I didn't mean that.

Well, what do you mean? What standard do you have at which you can say something is right or wrong? Does the homosexual community have its right to impose its values on others? Because that's what's happening in schools and it's being imposed upon us in TV. Christians are the ones who are made to look like buffoons, morons, bigoted full of hate.

And yet the homosexuals are the ones who are the heroes. I say, is that not a kind of desire to have their opinion taught to everybody else? Are you okay with that? And if you are, is it okay with the Christians come back and say, no, our opinion needs to be out there. You ask them these kinds of questions, you'll find that the unbeliever will quickly fold.

They don't have answers to this. What did Jesus, when he's on the cross, why do you say that? Why have you forsaken me? Psalm 22 is the reason. The first verse of Psalm 22 says, my God, my God, why have you forsaken me? So he's quoting scripture.

And when you read Psalm 22, this is what it says in Psalm 22, we're starting at verse 11. What does this sound like? Be not far from me for trouble is near for there is none to help. Many bowls have surrounded me. Strong bowls of passion have encircled me. They open wide their mouth at me as a ravening and a roaring lion. I'm poured out like water.

All my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax. It is melted within me.

My strength is dread up like a pot shirt. My tongue cleaves to my jaw and you lay me in the dust of death for dogs have shrouded me. A band of evil doers has encompassed me. They pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones. They look, they stare at me. They divide my garments among them and for my clothing they cast lights. So what does that sound like?

It's the crucifixion, which is in Psalm 22, which is written 1000 BC, which is why Jesus is fulfilling scripture. You guys give up or you're thirsty for more. And now the end is near. This is the end.

Beautiful. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top 6. For more on Matt and his live syndicated call-in radio show, go to Got a question? Matt Slick has your answer. This is the Truth Network.
