Here is the founder and chairman of the citizen for America foundation, Dr. Chris hello and welcome to perspective, it every day.
My thoughts are Mid-America bad about Mary for allowing us to search out right here on their campus in beautiful Memphis, Tennessee. I want to tell you if you're looking for college to attend. I encourage you to look at college Mid-America. Have a great academic program so you don't learn what you're going to learn but they teach from a biblical perspective, there's another critical race theory or other things that are being taught around the country right now so I encourage you to check out college Mid-America Lieut. in the next year or two or maybe you were to get a college degree and you want to learn more about God or some other subject. They have a seminary there and I don't make the limits.
Because seminary is just a fancy word for things a Christian institution that offers masters and doctorate degrees.

We just recently held a huge summit really the biggest of its kind in the country called the culture engagement 7F in the spring of each year, there were over 40 wonderful speakers you came in and I talked about issues like homosexuality, abortion, traditional family are all Connie Albers noted with it every Friday for family Friday Connie hour she was there talking about family issues, Mark matters, the former chief of staff for Pres. Trump was there so many great great speakers were there to talk about issues from a Christian perspective. So I encourage you to visit citizens for America foundation.com so you can learn more about how you can engage the culture for Jesus with them but I do several different everyday we talk about different issues in the culture and that so many great gifts in the last month and I just wanted To wrap up what other people have been saying on the show to encourage you on what to do next with the information that you have learned.
If you if you listen to the show if you came to the event in Memphis a little over a week ago work.
Even this past week.
You may have heard by now certainly hope you have distant documents will leak about a ruling from the United States Supreme Court you or if you want Thomas or that show. You know that back in December I was in Washington DC where the Supreme Court was hearing what they call oral argument on the Dobbs case that the Dobbs case is a case coming out of Jackson, Mississippi, and it has to do with the bill that was passed by the legislature basically says after 15 weeks of pregnancy. You cannot abort a baby anymore because it's a viable human life and it was really a miracle that the Supreme Court heard that case because since 1973. There's not been a significant case about abortion really hurt by the United States Supreme Court. What happened in 1973, was there was a decision this now famous called Roe V Wade so if you hear comments of something saying roadwork your what is it mean to do and later this week. By the way, we can have a show about what it will mean to live and I close Roe America of my good friend been on here before Grace Rickard Chesky is not Jewish students for life and grace is gonna be here talk about what a post-Roe America will look like, and we had death members in Washington DC over the past week because this past week.
What happened was anticipation for the decision is going be coming out this summer. We we've all thought that the Supreme Court would make a ruling on the Dobbs case, probably in early June. Now what the ruling would mean is if they rule in favor of the pro-life argument is if they what they would do is they would be saying that abortion is not a constitutional right under the United States Constitution that happens to be my position as well. Now I'm not a Supreme Court justice, but I've read the constitutional study the issue for many years and I'll see you in the Constitution anywhere word even implies that anyone has a right to murder an unborn baby through abortion is just not in their and so what would happen in an and I want tell you it's very very rare for the Supreme Court to go back in and rule against itself after a decision is already been made. It almost never happens. So the liberals in this country thought that they were set with this decision forever. That women had a United States constitutional right to abortion will what we've been hoping and praying what happened would be that the Supreme Court would say hey it's not a federal constitutional issue and will not send it back to the states and let the states make that decision. An individual state.
So this past week. A document was leaked again were talk about this in greater detail a few days on the show. Probably a couple days and talk about Grace. A document was late this past week that was supposed to be a draft document of the early decision on that issue. There's been a lot of think about it in the press. To me it wasn't a surprise because the leaked document or praise the Lord for it says that they are sending it back to the states and the Supreme Court is gonna say that it get abortion federal constitutional right letter to Ms. Sgt. out for four days. People are solid and I guess we have to have a new cycle we have news 24 hours a day. People have to create issues and stories to talk about in a minute is a big issue because no one's ever leaked the decision ever in the history of the Supreme Court before that, before that decision was issued publicly so there is an issue with possible crime that was involved work ethics of someone on the staff of the Supreme Court releasing the document early, but as far as the decision of our praise God for the decision. I hope that it truly is a decision. I think the Chief Justice John Roberts indicated that it really was a real graph that was submitted. That was released on leaked to the press early, but I don't know. While the news of the liberals to get our portal thing is a secret had a piece of my heart really since the day that the oral arguments were presented because Pres. Trump had the opportunity to appoint three conservative justices to the United States Supreme Court America go down the rabbit trail here and I gotta tell you that your a lot of people gripe and complain about Pres. probably not like his tweets or this or that or they think is mean-spirited. He was the most pro-life president in the history of this nation.
And the reason that I voted for him back in 2016 is not my first choice of primary right of all your 17 candidates running. It was my last choice when he plowed his way through the primaries and I supported him certainly and supported him against Hillary Clinton is values were so un-biblical. Even though I didn't care for his personal traits. He pledged to a group of Christian leaders before he took office. Course, you never know how someone could do, but he released a list with a group of Christians put together a list of Supreme Court justices that they would like to see on the Supreme Court, and he promised us that if we deliver the Christian vote for him, which we did that he would appoint only from that list and he kept his word and he and the opportunity to appoint to nominate nominate three Supreme Court justices while he was in office and I praise the Lord for that, if for nothing else that he did an office there other things that I like coming get out like his tweeting is on the way he treated some people personally integrate policy decisions. While he was in office and thank the Lord. He appointed Christian men and women in some of the cases to do not just Supreme Court positions, but hundred over 300 judges there federal judges while he was in office. He appointed which will affect judicial decisions our country for years, not asking them to sway a map, I love the Christians I have biblical values are not asking them to go get Constitution to do that. I just want judges sitting on a bench who don't try to legislate but look at the Constitution and fairly make decisions based on what the Constitution says. And so that's what happened here, potentially, and we think it is 100% accurate with the documents that were leaked that the Supreme Court has decided to send the issue back to the states so abortion will now be decided on a state-by-state basis. I'm excited about that because that the major change in policy less than the stabilized potentially of millions of unborn babies.
Now that doesn't mean that abortions will be outlawed across the country and that and yelled at me to fall for this argument about is gonna create a national healthcare crisis look on the remainder you don't you don't want to get pregnant then you know what not to do. You know, and don't do it outside of marriage marriage or sex sexual relationships were intended to be between a man and woman yes only a man and woman they can go ahead and email me that only in the case of marriage. So most of the abortion protected place for people who are single mothers are not married and for whatever reason there wanting to abort their babies. Even if we say one or two lives is worth it are still going to be a lot of states you, particularly California, New York and others to will probably turn into an industry is that of what the doors chemistry W: people in. I remember rumors that there were going to be liberal organizations that would pay to fly young women anywhere the country these areas to get abortion but it will become more difficult believe to get abortion and hopefully that even say like I said if you live is certainly worth as we take a stand on human life. I had just this morning, a friend of mine, Cynthia a text where someone was perverting Scripture and twisting Scripture to worksite trying to say that God supported and endorsed abortion.
I want to tell you there's nothing in God's word in any way shape or form that even hints to that adjusting ignorant people pushing out information to other ignorant people.
This is a huge victory over the life movement has less than a couple days were a doable show on this with Grace Rick Jeske grace that some people think or handle on Instagram and Twitter. Pro-life Barbie. She put junior in college and you're going to want to check out that showed just a couple days work. She's now we live for us from the Supreme Court building and talking about this issue, but today I'm I'm really gonna focus a show on some other issues to cover a broad spectrum is is an election your a lot of states right now are having primaries, Ohio just had their election on the North Carolina and other states have them coming up in and there's a lot of key races across the state. As noted on Oberg not only governs races but a lot of the United States Senate races, hoping that conservative Christians can, and when similar seats watching with great interest to suit the race and Georges Herschel Walker, former football player is running for the United States Senate and then mail because of this decision by the Supreme Court state house and state Senate races state judicial races are going to take on a greater interest in several because abortion decided to come back and tell you how to engage loosely in his first make a difference in the selection. This show is brought to you by generous jokes.

There is another relationship, range, hearing is in line enjoy history was made on today's date. One American minute with Bill. Federal mothers will officially on this day May 9, 1940 with the first national Mother's Day proclamation signed by Pres. Woodrow Wilson designated the second Sunday in May as a public expression of love and reverence. Mothers of our country. This was due to the lifelong efforts of Anna Jarvis, daughter of a Methodist minister in West Virginia. She organized Mother's Day workloads to care for wounded Civil War soldiers both raised money for medicine inspected bottom MILF sanitation and how to care for family American minute plans for all American minute of work, welcome back the goods of the screws you something to do a recap we been talking about for the last month or so with different years that have been on the show.
I want you to be able to take the information that you have on the show be able to get in God's word understand what the Bible says about specific issues and then take that information to develop a biblical worldview.
We all have a worldview worldview is just simply the lens through which we see the world how we make our decisions is how we interpret things well. As Christians we want wetlands to be the Bible we want to understand what the Bible says it addresses every issue really the world.
If you get any God wording read and understand and really study it. If you sit under a pastor who preaches the word of God and by the way, if you have a pastor who never addresses issues like abortion. Traditional family homosexuality transgender is and what's going on in the school system and you need to get out of the church, you need to be sitting under a pastor and address the issues of culture from a biblical perspective that are not political issues there. Chris their church issues are Senate issues you as a Christian. Chris walk. I get nervous when somebody starts talking about this stuff because you know I believe in separation of church and state that I want to get politics involved in my church will first let's cover that issue of separation of church and state are right, y'all, there is no such thing as separation of church and state is not of the United States Constitution.
I get so sick you. I travel all of the country speaking on college campuses in churches it at the big conferences and events and everywhere I go, I says, separation of church and state.
The Constitution while you talk about that hello you might want to get you a copy of the Constitution and a great place to get one from patriot mobile their great Christian company you go to their website and order a pocket constitution again from other organizations as well, or you can email me go to our site and sign email@example.com and we can get you a buck you got the vision less than 30 minutes. You can read the entire Constitution that I want to tell you from. I read it from cover to cover and there's not a lick of anything in there that hits around about separation of church and state.
The liberals have successfully brainwashed our country to thank you Madden and limp wristed pastors and will get the word of God or the Constitution to study what it really says there's no such thing as separation of church and state. It does not exist is not the Constitution, the only references come from comments made by certain of the founding fathers that it was never the situation to keep the church out of government. It was always keep government out of the church that we can have the free expression of religion and were really came from, the term comes from a letter that was sent to Thomas Jefferson from a group of Baptists. It was called the Dan Barry Baptist. The Danbury Baptists and him a letter because they were concerned about government interfering with church rules and policy and and and doctrine of the church. There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution.
Secondly, you say will Chris you talk about these issues and we don't want talk about politics in our church will only tell you that politics your church a full politics you ever been to a deacons meeting business meeting politics is in every part of life by politics you mean talk about abortion, but the murder of unborn babies we say don't want to talk about politics and church.
Do you mean the destruction of the traditional family is described in God's word. Our maybe the main you don't want talk about homosexuality and church that what you mean maybe Chris we don't want talk about critical race theory work. People have to apologize for being born white that what you mean when you say talking about politics and church, or maybe say Heidi with we don't want to talk about was going to school right now we want to talk about the indoctrination of our children.
We just want to be able to go along, get along well, except the transgender agenda similar shallow get up school in first grade. The first binder told her to choose their identity or be brainwashed into thinking there born in the wrong body or something like that. It is that what you mean when you say politics. I would say that's wrong. When I look at the Bible. Those issues are not issues of politics know all those issues are described in the Bible there talked about in the Bible you know what the issues of sin.
So when your pastor or those leaders in your church say they don't want those issues discussed what you pick and what you wanted is a lot going when I was a kid there was this cafeteria called Morrison limit medical Piccadilly.
I love going to Morris as a Piccadilly because they have a long line of food like cafeteria and you could pick they had 10 salad you can pick the one you won't in 15 or 20 vegetables you pick what best we won't all consummate you great what you all and then you got it.
That's not how church is supposed to be. We are not a cafeteria Christianity. You can't pick and choose reports about what you want except the part about we don't want the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is the whole word of God. It is barred Scripture from the Holy Spirit and listen to me it's either all true or none of it is true and we need to preach the whole inspired word of God, and you can disagree all you want. Those issues are issues of sin and there issues that should be addressed by pastors were sitting under pastor who preaches was called expository sermons were easy-going during the word of God not skipping things in your gonna cover all of these issues that are in the Bible there is there is a Christian pollster who you really talk about and show some name is George Barna, George Barna interviews Christians and is counted as surveys on all kinds of different bank and George Barna has failed of pastors who claim to be evangelical pastors that less than 10% of pastors, United States of America professed to be evangelical pastors ever address any of those issues that I was just talking about a bishop. Issues like abortion or the traditional family or homosexuality are critical race theory, the indoctrination of our children to accept the transgender agenda. They never address why is that well part of it is they're afraid of losing members. They may want to you be able to brag about how many members you have in your church. That's not biblical guidance that you have to have a mega church that has thousands of members abstain very small churches where the pastors and the members were on fire for Jesus make a huge difference in the community. Sellers.
Pastors don't want to do it because they want to get more tithes and offerings coming into the church so they can build these great palaces are country club for local believers instead of going out reaching the lost. For Jesus, and their popular when they don't step on anybody's toes. I don't say something offensive you won't offend anybody.
You fill up your coffers with money and you fill up your peers with people and some of the people. The others are fears that huge number pastors in America today that don't even believe the word of God. I don't believe the whole word of God. I don't believe is the inspired word of God. They don't believe that the Holy Spirit guided those men when they were writing those books in the Bible, so they don't believe it.
Listen while you even in the profession are you in and listeners who are not pastors, why are you listening to bashers. Why do you progress to be a Christian if you don't believe the Bible is true. Barna is also found out that huge number of people to profess to be Christians don't believe that the Bible is a true inspired word of God. We have got to address these issues and they been avoiding while they been avoiding you know what happened. While pastors ever address those issues.
While Christians have educated themselves and taking a stand since 1973, nearly 63 million babies have been aborted and asked just in the United States, not including around the world and did you know that our federal government are federal tax dollars have been used to promote abortion all over the world. Specifically, in partnership with Planned Parenthood and through the United Nations. There is no talent.
How many hundreds of millions of babies been aborted.
Using our tax dollars around the world with more than 63 made nearly 63 million have been murdered out through abortion in the United States. This 1973 while we sit back arguing about. We want the church involved in the state or the politics involved in our church you what else it happened that during that time loosing the dismantling of the traditional family that's what's so important to have judges we a lot of us don't vote for judges is valid dropout. We don't under the arch that we don't vote for good.
We don't bother to take the time to know what they stand for what their positions are faith have a biblical worldview.
We've got to do that because it is so important because as these cases are challenging to give up for judges. They make all kinds of decision then tell you an example that happened in North Carolina a few years ago and it happened across the country. Is there was a constitutional amendment passed in North Carolina were voters overwhelmingly voted to rule that marriage was between a man and woman. What happened the liberal state that because I knew they had liberal judges and injustices on the Supreme Court so every state. By the way, as the Supreme Court they were to do the court system to get to the state Supreme Court the state Supreme Court in North Carolina.
This happened in other states as well said that that family that a marriage is not a union between one man and one woman that opened the floodgates for homosexual marriage and and you might agree with homosexual marriage. But I want to tell you that a matter what you agree and it doesn't matter what society says marriage is not an institution of the government.
Marriage is an institution created by God in the Bible God defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman for life is what God intended. And God didn't intend that the runaround get divorce and you know on the steps of those here. You know that there are over 50% of people sitting in the church pews around you that have been divorced over 50% if the plague not just in America but in the church as well. God didn't intend for that God intended for you to make what's called a blood covenant between a man and a woman part of the reason that marriage is not is important to be plenty more because into society and indoctrination and encouraging of others such a big push to have sex outside of marriage, having sex outside of marriage devalues marriage itself in their huge statistics show that people have sex outside of marriage are much more inclined to get divorce and those who wait until they're married to have sexual intercourse.
Same thing with abortion. Do you know that one out of three people sitting in the pews around you at church had abortion. One out of three women that's what statistics say.
So why is it when pastor is looking at a congregational Sunday morning and 1/3 of the women in his congregation have had an abortion. He refuses to address that issue. Why is it the pastors don't address the issue of traditional families are typically a marriage and divorce when over 50% of the people sitting in his congregation had a divorce I don't like a lot of people is that the day but we need to wake up and we need to get involved in God's word and take a stand of what the Bible has said we need to engage the culture for Jesus Christ to take another commercial breaks a mother say does make delicious coffee just a mouth member mom this week. America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know if it's really important role God and the Bible is very busy and indicated American foundation Dr. Chris were made in our nation will embark on a journey of discovering the hidden much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal, and how it evolved over the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic acknowledge the creator, the truth about the creation of the mounting principles America secure your spot to join this show is brought to you by generous Joe's coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back to causes you care about.

Visit our website firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you and your church can join and support this exciting movement is a perspective, this is Chris Hughes, several other issues today going to make a lot of people upset because I'm talking about things like marriage, divorce, family why pastors and Christian do not engage in these issues and take a stand on the word of God when it comes to issues of culture we will if you didn't get you in the first segment go back and get released on the podcast later today we talk about separation of church and state.
There is no such thing as separation of church and state is not in the United States Constitution. It's just a lie that is government propagated by the left and because people are lazy and ignorant within the church within the Christian community. We haven't bothered to listen to what the Bible says right before the commercial break outs talk about survey were George Barta says that less than 10% of pastors in America who profess to be evangelical Christians ever address issues in the culture like abortion and homosexuality and traditional family is on the take a step further and also most of them are not talking about what's going on in our school system or something called common sexuality education curriculum in public schools across the country is an agenda that was squished by the Biden administration resident from fluid out the president Bryden brought it back in and in his first year in office dedicated 130 million that year alone to common sexuality education is being integrated into all cargo courses in our school system just like critical race theory.
We got schools all across the country were great kids can't read or write you out. I was in Baltimore recently in more than 50% of kids graduating in Baltimore can't read or write with the Serbian thought about how to put a condom on or about critical race theory.
You have a white man is his stone cold all over them their entire life. The not learning what they really need to survive in life. Common academic and educational skills to be able to get a good job and and make a good paycheck down the line in their life are also being taught even in kindergarten and first and second grade of whether or not decide whether another transgender is what we do with this nonsense lesson .4% of our population are transgender but is being built into every curriculum and everything we do across the country is a major issue on the news and everywhere else all the time.
Facebook as over hundred 50 choices what your gender can be nonsense okay you can play all the games you want in biology there always say it follows lot 12. I don't recall what the other thing I met with all the sites in this there are two sexes.
You either male or female is not about how you feel, what you think you were born to be in. You're born either male or female. It's over at that point we have desecrated what God has created and we need to get our lives straight into the church. We need to say this is nonsense quit listening this garbage. I'm just sick of hearing it and we gotta take a stand in the church today and pastors need to address this, you know that I mentioned just a second ago critical race theory that also is not only is it infiltrating the public school system is all over the church and we got what pastor all over the country, Southern Baptist or the big war going on right now, the Southern Baptist convention over critical race theory in the low pastors was being taught in seminaries, and even though that were the largest Protestant denomination of the whirlwind. We make up 11% Southern Baptist of people of churches across the country, but we train two thirds of the of the pastors across the world who are seminaries that we have we have six seminaries that are fully supported by the Southern Baptist convention or other Baptist dignitaries out there that are not controlled by the convention, but the seminaries are cranking out pastors are teaching critical race theory. In some cases, all kinds of other stuff that really should not be because there's a lot of me we could do months worth of shows on critical race theory mother. Given all of it today.
There are a lot of bad things about critical race theory, but I could tell you the worst thing about critical race theory as it seeks to divide what Jesus Christ died to unite at the end of story. Jesus died, unite us and we need to be united. Critical race theory describes a wedge between us and creates more problems in our society and our country and even in the church right now there's a war going on for the word of God.
There's a war against evil, and we need to boldly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to do what we can to share the word of God around the world were some things I don't how much I delve into some things that we can do to hopefully change our culture not just because it's an election year. Some of these things now we can do within the church, but other things we need to do as Christians we need to take a stand on these other areas, so start with the first one so pastors get ready for me and offend a lot of people here was on the thing that I meant to say that we can do first pastors. I want to encourage you to preach the whole word of God is pretty basic. They should be something this earth shattering you know you think if if a man spent his life he felt like he had a calling from God and bother to go to seminary and spend that time to get educated. He would preach the word of God. But more than 90% of pastors in the United States today do not address the whole word of God. I want you as a pastor to believe that the word of God is true and teach that your people in the church that the word of God is true. And people assimilate you preacher says something of the Bible is a true you get up and walk out right in no way to enter the service. Don't wait to move your letter, get up and get out from underneath that evil man right then and there, because God's word is either all true or not of a street if any part of the Bible is not true. How can you trust the veracity of any other part of it. If you don't believe that God created the heavens and the earth and it wasn't some stupid Big Bang. If you believe in evolution, do monkey through years and years, which is never addressed in the Bible and you think that part is not true. If you don't believe in the flood. This describe the Bible. If we can't trust those things happen. We trust the bank that we want to try check and we trust it when we gather our spirits are going to go to one or two places heaven or hell. After we trusted Jesus Christ died on the cross for our snapback and we trust that action would be trust and believe that Jesus rose again from the grave. The third day, how can we trust Jesus ascended into heaven to sit on the right hand of God the father. How can we trust that Jesus is coming again one day to rapture the church actually trust the Bible is there that Jesus will rule and reign, from his throne in Jerusalem forever and forever and forever actually trust the good thing if we think that some of the other things in the Bible are not true. It just doesn't work like that, folks, it's either all true or not it was true and when you can't we'll talk about cafeteria Christianity. A while ago. You can't pick and choose which parts are true and which parts are not. It's a problem so you need a pastor who's going to preach the word of God. You need to sit under a pastor who's going to study the word of God, believe the word of God with his whole heart, soul, mind and body seek the Holy Spirit to guide him of the issues that he used to address the pulpit. You knew Sen. pastor is not really afraid to address those issues. I tell you get litmus test you just last week when this issue was released from the Supreme Court on the Dobbs case on determining whether or not abortion is going to be returned back to the states where the Supreme Court is saying that that abortion is not a constitutional right of the United States Constitution did your pastor address that at all. Sunday evening he was preaching about something else did he address it that give you a good indication that something major is happening in the culture in your pastor does at least mention it from the pulpit, known as any had to change what is preached is that a good to preach on that he may not have had time to get deep in the whole issue understand everything would be that it leaves mentioning something was going on in your community that he address the riots that were going across the country, a leading up to the election in 2020 is your pastor tell you that you need to be registered to vote, as your pastor ever talked about was being taught in our school system and the attempt to indoctrinate our children is transgendered.
I want to tell you if you're sitting undermanned who professes to be a man of God, and he never addresses those issues is not preached in the whole word of God and probably doesn't have the courage to stand on the word of God, and I know some upsetting people. I don't care.
We need men and women who work professing to be Christians that have a backbone is fine. And certainly what got pastors. We need men of God who were sitting in the pulpit standing in the pulpit were preaching the word of God boldly proclaiming the word of God in helping their people understand the issues that are in culture today. It's important and you need somebody's got a backbone was going to address these issues. I mean, is crazy when when things were going on.
Allow homosexual marriage did just a few years ago when that became the thing across the country did your pastor addresses issues. If not, you need to ask why you need Joanne's kill. Why not 63 million babies in a brutally murdered through abortion is 1973 made at least some of pastors out there please give him a token acknowledgment to it once a year mean every January there's a Sunday. Will pastors across the country are asked to address the issue in January of that on the anniversary of Roe V Wade. That's why so many Christians don't know even what Roe V Wade is a the pastor don't even address it once a year about those pastors preach about Domino yeah but you will be asking for your money at least once a year and and more often than that in most cases get that money is important, but how about if into the lives of those unborn babies pastors science that tithing is not right is biblical. We need to do. You need to give a person 10% of your money was example given of the Bible, and even more that commissions and other areas. Your church needs money don't twist what I'm saying. Your church needs money to operate the building up a map of program the same pastors and missionaries in the plant churches around the world and hopefully be involved in the pro-life movement and other issues within your community. What I'm saying is you can't pick and choose again getting back that cafeteria Christianity. You can't pick and choose with which issues you want to address and which ones you don't want to address just like you address tithing. Every year pastors you need to be addressing the issues in our culture, and abortion is a major major issue in your church need to wake up.
Yellow Protestants across members of the Baptist love Protestant very critical of Catholics on so many issues, but I want to tell you what one issue that the Catholic Church is got right, that's for sure that the abortionist life. They have taken a bold stand. All life. I was at the March for life in Washington DC back in January and I'm not saying that there were not some Protestants there.
There were with the overwhelming majority of people taking a stand in Washington DC on the issue of life or Catholic and I'm thankful for a Catholic brothers and sisters who take that stand, but I'm ashamed the Protestants, and particularly my Southern Baptist brothers and sisters did not have a strong representation.
Washington DC for the march of life, particularly in an issue in a year right after just a month before it a few weeks before that the Supreme Court had heard the case. The Dobbs case were trying to encourage them and pray for them to make the right decision, which I think made that to say that that abortion is not a United States constitutional issue in this and that issue back to the state. Folks would gotta get involved in these issues, we wouldn't have this probably let godly men and women off the first place. We would have this problem.
We would take a stand. You know the over 40 million people in the United States who profess to be bad jungle Christians are not even registered to vote challenge down to the transit process for societies that are registered about getting a problem in our society today are the right name and organization or individual is social media, graphics cards give us a call today at 704984242 connect with the design on social crowded with viewpoints of voice condition after a seven.

I gave a speak right this is pretty happy to have you with they were talking about issues in our culture and what the church can do to get involved.
Right before the break. I will talk about how pastors need to preach the word of God and stand on the word of God. Let me tell you something else we need to do pastors. We detailed voter registration drives in our church. So you need to take the initiative on that plaster you need to do it so finds about in your church you circumvent people to serve on every other committee of the world.
Some of those committees don't matter at all by somebody in your church will go to the local board of elections or voter registration office. They have different names in different parts of the country. With every county in the country as one somebody from your church to go down to find out what's involved in getting registered to vote in most states is not all right now you can register to vote online so it might be as simple as having a couple laptops or iPads set out in the vestibule are in the lobby brick church on Sunday morning, you encourage people to God. Register to vote in some stages the paper registration, but it's very very simple and you can do it so I want to encourage you right now. Set a Sunday or two really I do several throughout the year really want 1/4 and at least once a year preach on the importance of being an engaged Christian in society. Our civic duty and civic responsibility as Christians, all we need to be addressing these issues in church and then have a table set out the lobby the church and after church asked them to go out register to vote. It doesn't take five minutes. The first step of engaging the culture here is we've got to get our Christian register to vote in damaging their over 40 million people in the United States who profess to be evangelical Christian who were not even registered about black churches have done a great job over the year getting their people engage in a process why churches and scared to death that people to vote. It's crazy. All it is not is not illegal you can ask people to register to vote on that date on which party although if you're doing your job as preacher I let you do that on that Sunday comparing contrast the platforms of the two parties. Again, you don't have to tell him how to do anything to show them what does the Democratic Party say the Republican Party sale the issue of life or the sale. The issue of marriage. What are the sale. The issues of homosexuality. I can send you graphics if you like that you can use in PowerPoint to citizens.
Former.com contact me and I can get you the information is pretty basic. If you're preaching the word of God say the Bible says this is what Democratic Party says is what about the boy says. You're not interjecting your opinion and do it. You're just stating facts. Let them make their own decision encouraged him to step out the door. The lobby and to register to vote. We need to Christian to register to vote so they can get involved and you can do it in churches like Roosevelt, Chris. I don't want to I don't want to violate the separation of church as they will have already told you. Near the show earlier backing of the podcast. Listen to it.
There's no such thing in the Constitution. There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the United States Constitution rebuts that will Chris I don't want to jeopardize my 501(c)(3) status that is just ignorance coming from you. First off, it shouldn't matter what the federal government says on the issue. If the Bible says that you need to preach to get a spot to be the man of God preach the word of God and not worry about some stupid 501(c)(3) status. Secondly, you bothered to study the issue at all. In five or 10 minutes. You can find out don't trust me, you can find out completely.
The registering people to vote in your church is not a violation of your see what the 501(c)(3) status and then finally I would tell you there's not been one case in the history of of the nations is the 501(c)(3) status creation where a church is lost that status because registering people to vote, not one that ever ever ever factors a strong argument. The church does not even need to have the designation of a 501(c)(3), but I'll let you talk to your lawyers about that anyway you not endangering it by registering people to vote. We need to get our people in the churches register to vote directly given registered about what we do. We need to educate them on the issues, educate on the issues and we can help you with that if you go to citizens for America.com.
We have monthly webinars will be a speaker to come on.
It's absolutely free. You can attend, you can interact with the speakers a lot about issues that are going on in our culture today and you can find out more about that is citizens from.com. I would also encourage you to go to something called I voter guide.com I voter guide.com boy this is a great tool put out by the American family Association. Anybody can pull it up on their phone or laptop their computer. It tells use running for office in your area. It tell you the issues that they stand for. It tells you where your people can get register to vote and where they can get one vote.
A lot of great organizations that put out their nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) compliant voter guides American family Association does it with faith and freedom coalition without a great voter guide family resource Center does coming out of Washington DC Tony Perkins and his group a lot of different other state groups that do as well. What they do is they send surveys, questionnaires to candidates running for office and they asked him a question that I don't. They don't change the answer and they make a form or is basically a graph and input. Chris used pro-life, pro-choice, and they click which one it is. It's just that simple. They cover some of the top issues. It's completely compliant with the IRS on the 501(c)(3) status without making an endorsement of any candidate is just a way for your people in your church to see how these people stand on these issues that are important to them again.
If you and the pastor have preached on these issues and talk these issues there that understand what the Bible says you don't have to tell them which one to vote for but they can choose that issue by looking at the guy at the voter guide.
Again, most people unfortunately in your church of never met the candidates for office. They never bothered to call them and ask them how they stand on these issues and by getting these resources again some – their faith and freedom coalition without a great one American family Association is a wonderful online program called I voter guide.com is tremendous and and and a family resource Council and others put out these other great voter guides. If you trump if you have trouble you want help finding where to get one again.
If you contact our team is citizens from.com we can help you get voter guide to what they were bolted in search of the size of the print of the size of a bolted a few weeks before the election. Just stick those in the bulletin, and it helps people understand the issues. Another thing that you need to give to your churches and the people in your church or Sunday school class of the Bible study group is a sample ballot. You can get those online these days. Or you can just call your local local supervisor election of the board of elections office and what the sample ballot here for that helpful because you everybody was running for office and every office that is up for election that year. It looks just like the ballot will look so it helps people get familiar. You know some people don't want to go to the voting booth because they don't want to stay there too long and they don't understand the issues they don't understand the candidate with few hand out a sample ballot to your congregation, which again is 100% legal. If you do that going the election right now right now all cross-country their states are having primary elections. We have a big general election in November this year were every member of Congress is up and about 1/3 of the Senate is up and we have judges that we have every member state house across the country off State Sen. like County commissioners, school boards, Mayor, city councils lot of important positions in my position, and am mapping about the way there's no more important position this year than school board. We need to elect godly men and women school board of just a few churches use community would turn out vote you can control the school board County commission, city Council everything else right there in your community sample ballot helps you because that way you know who's running you're familiar with it and you're allowed to take him by the way your leather taken to the voting booth so you can fill out your sample ballot before you get there and then just copy and overwrite the same thing down in the voting booth that whispers a candidate running you're not familiar with any other sample ballot you'll know about it and have the opportunity to learn information about that candidate beforehand and you'll know what offices are running toward you know what offices are up for election that year is so important to have a sample ballot that you familiarized yourself with in the states a few minutes, but you want to become an educated voter filing would encourage you to be an engaged voter in engaged voter you need to know who is running for office and you need to know what their standard for it.
I would encourage you to get involved pick some campaign you have to work at winning campaigns and encourage typical local campaign about saying it national campaigns or state campaigns are not important.
They all need a helper to workers but maybe your first foray into this. You help summarize whatever school board this year County Commissioner, Mayor or city counselor something like that get involved every politician workers to put out yard signs to make phone calls to help write letters, or all or maybe it was scheduling this to any job awarding bike they need help with doing it another way you can engage in. Also become educated is have something in your church that I call you got what you want to call God and country service. One time a year will you invite people to come to your church that are running for office or an office.
Don't let him speak just introduce him and pastors preach a message of salvation to them for some of the memory of the work.and then have your people to the fellowship hall and and get to meet with and you said I woke up yesterday will selection your warm body in the room love to do engage in the process that were about impacting the culture for Jesus.
