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. He asked me, was Joyce Meyer a biblical Christian? No, she's not.

Flat out, no. She says this, Jesus, he could have helped himself up until the point where he said, I commend my spirit into your hands. At that point, he couldn't do nothing for himself anymore. He had become sin. He was no longer the son of God.

He was sin. She says Jesus was the first human being who was born again. She said Jesus paid for our sins in hell, which is damnable heresy. He finished the atonement on the cross. He did not pay for our sins in hell. She said that Jesus went to hell in our place and was tormented and that if you don't believe Jesus went to hell, you cannot be saved. So she is preaching a false gospel. I do not, will not, cannot call her a sister and fellow believer.

Number five. How did different races evolve to African Americans if everyone came from Adam and Eve or if everyone descended from Noah and his family? The genetic information for dark skin, light skin, blue eyes, brown eyes, it's all existent genetic information that God created in our ancient parents, Adam and Eve. So when the line was narrowed through Noah at the same information was there that people went to different areas. It just so happens that people with white skin do better in Northern latitudes because of vitamin D and they need sunshine and they absorb sunshine better. People with black skin, dark skin and lower latitudes like the equator do better than people than white skin because the white skin people tend to get burned and it's damaging and can cause skin cancer and other things. So the darker ones do better in that environment. That's all that's going on with the different races.

Number four. So how is Jesus an apostle? We know that Jesus was sent by the father. For example, in John 6 39 he says he came to do the will of the one who sent him. In John 20 21 Jesus says peace be to you.

As the father has sent me, I also send you. But what's interesting about Hebrews 31 where it says this, Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus the apostle and high priest of our confession. Now what's the confession is who Jesus is and the truth of what God has done. And in the Greek it says the apostle and high priest. So the definite article the is covering both apostle and high priest. So they're kind of related and it's in his ultimate mediatorship as a high priest. So he's an apostle as the one who's sent by the father to accomplish the will of the father. He's also the high priest after the order of Elkezidic, which is why he was baptized. And in those two things by the one definite article the, we see the single person who holds that couplet of actuality there. Number three. Inserting pop culture in Christian dialogue, like maybe a pastor inserts a lyric from a song in his sermon.

It depends because how is it being used? The scriptures themselves need to be the centrality, the backbone, the skeleton from which a sermon goes. And inside of that it needs to be Christo centric and ultimately has to talk about the cross of Christ as the ultimate reason for whatever it is he's preaching about. So, you know, I could preach, I could quote a sermon, I could quote the Beatles, like all you need is love, which is not true. There's lots of things to say. The world has its wisdom, but its wisdom is insufficient. You know, if you're using that kind of stuff, that's fine.

But it depends, you know, it's, it's a gray area, you know, is he using it in order to get more people in a sound more hip? Well, then forget it, you know, let the word of God be powerful, not sermon illustrations. Number two. I was an evangelical for 30 plus years, but eventually tired of all the hate speech and hateful ways that those in the church around me handled life. Oh, Jesus Christ did not call for any of this. Well, here's what Jesus says, Matthew 7, four, you hypocrite.

First take the login of your own eye. Matthew 15, 17, you hypocrites rather than Isaiah prophesy of you. How about this one from Jesus? You serpents, you brood of vipers.

How about this one? Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes and like respectful greetings in the marketplaces. He says, you foolish ones, you're like concealed tombs, those who were entering in because of you are hindered. You and your hypocrisy. You have your father in the devil.

You dishonor me. He says, if I don't speak the truth, I'll be a liar like you. These are the things I'm just quoting all the references that Jesus said.

We're supposed to imitate Christ. This is why I will say things like Joyce Meyer is a false teacher. Kenneth Copeland, a false teacher. That's why I will say Joel Osteen is a false teacher.

Why? Because they're false teachers. Why do God require a blood sacrifice? Because the life's in the blood, Acts 17, 11, and ultimately the blood sacrifice was pointing ahead to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. And the blood represented that death and the shedding and the thing that could be sprinkled upon. Because you got to understand another principle that when you have an element in a holy place, it is sanctified by an oil or water or blood applied to it as though that object receives something from something else. So the anointing as Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit came upon him at his baptism, which I believe he was sprinkled. That's another topic, according to Levitical law, entering into the priesthood, signifying his anointing. And so the anointing of the blood is also symbolized in the shedding of blood by which our sins are washed away and cleansed away.

And so all of it points thematically to the point of the death of Christ on the cross. That's why goodbye. Goodbye. It's time to go. Say goodbye. Why is it sad?

Makes us remember the good times we've had. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six. 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.
