Last week we learned about George Soros, a Hungarian-born, Jewish-yet-atheist 90-year-old who amassed billions in investment trading and funds Leftist organizations—including Evangelical ones—who further his mission to transform into a socialist state.

So what motivates Soros and the Left? After all, it’s obvious that the Constitutional Republic of the United States has provided more individual liberties, opportunity, products and services, and charity than any nation in history. Then why the relentless effort to “fundamentally transform” it, as President Obama promised?

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we’ll delve into Part 2 on George Soros, discussing what drives him and the Left...

George Soros, Part 2. So what drives Soros and the Left? That is a topic we'll discuss today right here on the Christian Real View Radio Program, where the mission is to sharpen the Biblical worldview of Christians and to share the Good News that all people can be reconciled to God through the faith in Jesus Christ. I'm David Wheaton, the host, and our website is thechristianworldview.org.

I'm going to talk about a couple of things that I want to talk about today. First of all, I want to talk about the religious organizations, including evangelical ones, who further his mission to transform America and really more broadly the world into a socialist state. So what motivates this man? What motivates the far left in this country? I'm not saying just liberals, those who think we should have a little higher taxes, but those on the left that we see so prominently at the head of the Democrat Party today.

I mean, after all, it's obvious that the Constitutional Republic of the United States has provided more individual liberties, more opportunity to more people, more products and services, and is more charitable than any nation in history. So why the relentless effort to, as President Obama said before he was elected, to fundamentally transform the United States of America? This weekend on the Christian Real View, we're going to dive into part two on George Soros, discussing what drives him and the left.

I received a listener email after last week's program that was a very good one. Someone said, Well, how did Soros make all his money? Well, that's a good question.

We should have covered that last week. It's an obvious question. This man is able to do what he does because he is a multi-billionaire. So how did he make his money?

So I looked that up this week. I knew he was into finance and investments and currency trading and so forth, but I dove into a little bit to find out where exactly and how he made his money. Now this is from the Investopedia, kind of like a Wikipedia for finance, and they have an article on this.

I can't verify all of it, but this is just what they say, so take it for what it is. George Soros has had a net worth of $8.3 billion as of April of 2020. He is the founder and chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC. He is ranked the 56th richest person in America by Forbes and in the number 162 spot globally. Not in the level of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon or maybe Mark Zuckerberg or some of these other folks who have more billions, but when you start getting into the billion level, pretty much price becomes very little object for what you want to do in life and what you want with the philanthropy, Bill Gates, that kind of level.

I mean these guys are all in a completely different class. Soros amassed his fortune as one of the world's greatest speculators, the article goes on to say, in the global financial markets. His famous bet against the British pound in 1992 generated more than 1 billion in profits for him and earned him the title of the man who broke the Bank of England. In other words, what he did is he bet that the British pound was going to go down. He shorted it, it's called, and I don't understand financial instruments that well, but he bet that it was going to go down. It was a big risk.

He was correct. In other words, he bought stock he didn't have, believing he'd be able to buy it at a lower price. Well, in fact, the currency went down and he had so much of it, so much leverage that it nearly broke the Bank of England. It goes on to say his quantum fund, it's probably a fund of mutual funds, generated a 35% annualized return for 25 years. 35%, usually a financial investor is doing well if they're 7 to 10%, 35%. This man obviously either has an incredible genius with investments or he's got something very impropriety, illegal going on with insider trading or whatever. I have no basis for that, but that's an incredible return, 35% for 25 years. His philanthropic, that's what they call his open society foundation, have garnered much acclaim while his political statements have sparked much controversy.

That's an understatement. George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary on August 12, 1930. It makes him 90 years old now. His Jewish birth surname was Schwartz. His father changed his last name to Soros in 1936 to avoid potential problems with their religion.

His father, Tivadar, was a World War I prisoner during the Russian Revolution who successfully escaped Russia to rejoin his family in Budapest, Hungary. Soros experienced the growing persecution of Hungarian Jews during the Nazi occupation of Hungary. He aided his father in forging thousands of documents to help his countrymen flee Hungary during the Holocaust.

The family regularly went into periods of hiding, sometimes separately. Soros honed his survival skills during these times. Last week we heard from George Soros that his father had him go to Germany as a godson of a Christian man so they wouldn't know he was Jewish. He aided the Nazis or someone in the confiscation of Jews who owned property. That led them to be shipped off to the concentration camps. This whole thing about his background and youth certainly impacted his world view. His father was imprisoned during the Russian Revolution in the early 1900s. Soros experienced Nazism as well.

There's no question that someone who experiences this is going to be lifelong impacted from it. In 1947, Soros enrolled in the London School of Economics. I believe that school is very leftist in its vision, believing in Keynesian economics, not in free market economics, but I'm not sure about that. His mentor, Karl Popper, was a philosopher who coined the term open society. That's the name of George Soros' foundation today, open society. This man, Karl Popper, was a huge influence in his life when he was a student. Soros was a student, which was the opposite of the dictatorships that Soros had lived through and loathed. So again, that background he had with the Russians and then with the Nazis made a big impact on him. His philanthropic and philosophical views were molded during this time.

That's a very important line there. Late teens, early 20s, whatever it was, his philanthropic, what they call philanthropic is what the open society does today, funding all these organizations, these leftist organizations. That's his view of philanthropy and his philosophical views of the world were molded during this time. Four years after his graduation, Soros landed a financial position at a London bank. In 1956, Soros moved to the United States to procure a position as an arbitrage trader at New York-based firm FM Meyer. He worked at a number of Wall Street firms as a trader and analyst. The tipping point was when he managed his first offshore fund, First Eagle Fund. His success led him to launch a second fund called the Double Eagle Fund.

Just some statistics here, how well he was doing financially. He and his assistant left the firm and formed Soros Fund Management in 1973, structured as a hedge fund where they invest in companies that they believe are going to do well. He was renamed the Soros Fund.

The fund earned 4200% over a 10-year period compared to 47% for the S&P 500. This man, again, either has a genius when it comes to what to invest in and make money or he's got something going on behind the scenes that's letting him know where to invest things before their stock goes from low to high. He was dubbed the world's greatest money manager. In 2011, Soros Fund Management transitioned to a family office.

This is when he's now getting more out of the everyday work of money management and financial investing. It closed its doors to outside investors and returned about $1 billion in money to clients. From inception to closure, his fund earned investors nearly $44 billion, dwarfed only by the $58 billion earned by Ray Dalio's Bridgewater Fund. It's been one of the best funds in history as far as earning money for his clients. Soros Fund Management now primarily exists to provide cash to the Open Society Foundations, the charitable organization started by Soros. In 2017, he gave the foundation $18 billion himself, bringing his lifetime total of giving to his own foundation $32 billion.

That same year, Soros appointed Dawn Fitzpatrick as chief investment officer of the foundation. Her job is to manage the fund's $25 billion in assets and earn at least $1 billion annually to cover the foundation's operations. You have to understand when you have $25 billion in an Open Society Foundation like this, they invest that too in the markets.

Let's say you can earn even 5 or 10% on that, that is going to bring in $1 billion to $2.5 billion per year just in investment revenue. It's a self-perpetuating cash cow for him to be able to do his quote-unquote philanthropy. All right, that's all as a context here and something we probably should have got into last week, but we didn't get into it so hopefully that closes some of the loops that you've been wondering where this guy made all his money. What we think and what we believe, what our worldview is, is the source of all of our motivations and actions. In other words, what our deepest values and thoughts and worldview is about the things in the world, and obviously Soros was really influenced by that professor early on in his days and his background. What we believe about the world is the source of all our motivations and actions.

So we heard last week from this DVD on Soros, here's what Soros believes fundamentally what drives his worldview. Are you religious? No. Do you believe in God?

No. Soros told us he believes God was created by man, not the other way around, which may be why he thinks he can smooth out the world's imperfections. Soros told the independent newspaper in Great Britain, it is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of God, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.

To say the man has a huge ego doesn't even begin to explain his messianic zeal to turn the world into something he likes, this socialist utopia governed by a global elite with him at the head of it all. That's exactly right, that's from the DVD film on the Soros bundle. In other words he doesn't believe in God, he doesn't trust or believe in the word of God, so there's no basis of authority for George Soros outside of himself and other people who have influenced him. So Soros has his own vision for the world that's completely devoid of that vision being influenced by God. That's the starting point, that's the source of his worldview, doesn't explain everything, we have much more to get to to try to answer the question what drives Soros and the left, more coming up on the Christian real view.

Who is George Soros and what does he believe? Are you religious? No. Do you believe in God?

No. Soros told the independent newspaper in Great Britain, it is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of God, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out. Soros spends his billions to transform America into godless socialism.

The Bible says that children should be raised in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. There's nothing more important than sitting, walking, talking, and teaching your son or daughter to love and fear God. The church is swimming in children's resources, but it's ultra important to select ones that accurately represent God, His word, and the gospel. At our store on thechristianworldview.org, we are intentional about offering resources that will build a sound and strong faith in children. You will find several Bibles for children, the Adam Raccoon book series, and Good News for Little Hearts series.

We also have video and audio resources like Theo and Sugar Creek Gang. Browse them all at thechristianworldview.org and then use them daily with the child God has put in your life. That's thechristianworldview.org. We're talking about part two today on George Soros and what drives him and the left in this country.

Last week we did part one. You can hear that at our website thechristianworldview.org. We're offering a new resource in concert with these topics right now. We're calling it the George Soros Resource Bundle.

It's a 60-minute DVD and a 60-page book and a 16-page chart and guide. You can get it for a donation to the Christian Real View. Just get in contact with us the usual ways, thechristianworldview.org or our website 1-888-646-2233. Today we're asking the question, what drives him and people like him, people who are allied with him? Why do they want to fundamentally transform America? In segment one we heard about how he made his money. The irony there is he made his money in the free market in a capitalistic system. He's a capitalist. He used capital to make more capital. Yet everything he funds is socialist Marxist.

It's a discrepancy. It's an irony of what this man has used capitalism in the free market to make all this money so that he can use that money to transform America away from its limited government free market foundations to a socialist state. His worldview is the basis for what we believe, what motivates us, what we do in life. Soros is an atheist.

He has his own vision for the world that's completely devoid of God's influence. But just being an atheist does not mean that you're going to end up like George Soros or you're going to be a leftist. You're not going to be like Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Kamala Harris.

You may not be a leftist like them. Think of Charles Krauthammer. You may remember him as a conservative writer and commentator. He was often on Fox News. He was an atheist as well.

So why wasn't he on the left? Because he lived his life. He didn't believe in God. Well, for instance, the difference is that Charles Krauthammer was an atheist. He was conservative, which borrows conservatism, borrows its political philosophy from a Christian worldview. In other words, Charles Krauthammer was very happy to abide by the values and principles of Scripture for government, limited government, the separation of powers, in other words, the separation of the sin nature of man, individual rights, private property, the incentives that go along with free market to work and to gain and to improve. He was happy to abide by those even though he was an atheist.

He concluded that those are better for mankind. He wasn't at war with God and Christianity. He was more like, well, I don't believe in God, but if you want to, that's fine.

Live and let live. Now, Soros is very different. He rejects God's values and believes that he has better ones. So what drives him is, Soros and the left have a deeper rejection of God and his word. In other words, how much one hardens their heart to truth and how much one resists God is going to determine how far left you go. And some people, like Soros, dive deeper into God rejection.

So that's the explanation for what drives Soros and the left to fundamentally transform America. They have decided to dive deeper into rejecting God and his word. It's like all unbelievers are not the same. I mean, think about, take the extreme example of, let's say, Adolf Hitler murdered six million Jews and others during the Holocaust and the nice person who lives down the street from you who never would hurt a fly but believes they're a good person and their self-righteousness will get them to heaven. They both are not saved and sadly they both will be judged because they rejected God's offer to save them through his son Jesus Christ, not by works of righteousness are we saved, but through God's mercy, where by grace you saved your faith, not of yourselves.

It's a gift of God, not as a result of works that no one may boast. So you can't be saved by being a good person. So both Hitler and this nice person who lives down your street, sadly, the Bible says, are on their way to hell. But they're not the same depth of depravity.

The nice person down your street is not developing a system to murder six million Jews. So there are different levels of depravity and that seems patently obvious. And so Soros and the left, they've just, they've dived deeper into depravity and their rejection of God and his word. They've hardened their heart more than the other, just more typical unbeliever down the street. And Hebrews 3 says this. He says, take care brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called today, so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. In other words, we have a choice when we get into sin to either turn from it, repent, and go back.

Or if we continue to harden our heart, our heart becomes harder and harder and it becomes impenetrable to truth and going the right way. So Soros and the left, and we've talked about this recently in the program with the Democrat National Committee platform, are much more radically resistant to God and his authority. Matter of fact, they're out to eliminate his authority. You've seen the symbol of Black Lives Matter, it's the clenched fist in the air.

It's the clenched fist toward authority, and ultimately toward God's authority. So they are in a much deeper rejection of God and his authority than just your average, let's say, liberal. And to take it even one step further, they might even be in league with the greatest rebel of all time that Saul Alinsky wrote about in his book, Satan. They might be.

I don't know, but they might be. I mean, ultimately, we're either a child of God or a child of Satan, but some people actually go into that depravity of actually entering into league with Satan. I don't know that about Soros, but that's certainly a possibility.

It's not beyond the realm. We see that in Scripture. People are possessed by demons, they're possessed by Satan himself, Judas was, and we know there's a spiritual war going on between Satan and God. And Satan not only has his demons on his side, but there are people that he enlists to be on his side.

And George Soros may be one of them, I don't know. But if you read in Isaiah chapter 14 about Satan's fall from heaven, what was that like? Remember, Satan was an angel created by God, and for a time was under God's authority, but then chose, he said, I can be like God. I don't want to be under God's authority. I want to resist God.

I want to be God. That's what took place, and this passage in Isaiah, it's one of the few places in Scripture that describes what happened to Satan. He was one of the top angels that God had created, but apparently God created angels with some measure of free will, whether to worship and follow him or not, and Satan chose to fall.

And now he's trying to take everyone with him. How have you fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn? You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations.

Talking about Satan here, the one who weakens the nations. But you said in your heart, now notice all the I's here. I will ascend to heaven. I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will make myself like the Most High God. Nevertheless, the Bible says, you will be thrust down to hell, to the recesses of the pit.

Those who see you will gaze at you. They will ponder over you, saying, Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world like a wilderness and overthrew its cities, who did not allow its prisoners to go home? This is a description of Satan, and by extension, it really isn't a description of those who are in utter rejection and fist-clenched, like Soros is, against God and His word. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds.

I will make myself like the Most High. That's why Soros said in that clip we played in the last segment, it's something intoxicating or whatever he said about when you think of yourself as your own God. That's how Soros thinks of himself, and he's got this depth of depravity that's beyond just other typical unbelievers, that he believes he can remake the world with the billions he has made into something that his vision for the world, not God's. Now, there are religious partners to people like Soros as well, not just those who are secular like Soros and atheists and those on the secular left. There are also those in the religious realm who are partners to them.

So it's not just atheists who reject God and His authority, it's also religious people who say they believe in God, they mention God in the Bible and that kind of thing, but they don't actually submit or obey the God of the Bible. So these unsound religious people, I say unsound as in they have a completely unorthodox, false interpretation of Scripture, they are actually I think even more dangerous because they are the most deceptive and they're very usefully used by someone like George Soros, because they make it appear as if they are doing God's work. And this is why George Soros funds certain evangelical organizations. You can look on the chart and guide we're offering, there are several of them on there, World Vision I believe is on there, I believe the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, I think even the National Association of Evangelicals gets some funding from his open society, don't quote me, I don't have the chart in front of me right now, but there are several of them that think, well why would George Soros fund those organizations? Because he knows those are going to deceptively lead the people who follow those organizations the wrong way. So these are the Pharisees and Sadducees of our day, remember back in Christ's day they were the religious people of Christ's day, but those were the people who actually murdered, had Jesus Christ the son of God murdered.

Now isn't that ironic? The religious people, the most fastidious religious people of Christ's day were the ones that murdered him, just as the religious people, the religious left of our day are the ones in ally, in concert, in union with George Soros. These are the liberal Christians who say they believe in God, they may even talk about Jesus once in a while as a great social justice warrior, but they have a completely unorthodox, non-traditional, wrong interpretation of scripture that leads them to one end, the same end that George Soros wants, political leftism. Not the great commission, make disciples of all the nations, evangelism, discipleship, but political leftism.

We're talking about what drives Soros and the left today here on the Christian worldview, we have much more coming up, don't forget to get this resource bundle we're offering on George Soros, you can get it for a donation to the Christian worldview, just go to our website, thechristianworldview.org.

This is part two of our series on George Soros in light of this Soros resource bundle we're offering for a donation to the Christian worldview.

There's a lot here and we have more sound bites and much more to get to on this. So just the short answer is, what drives Soros and the left is that they more deeply reject God and His word than just your average unbeliever and they believe they can order a more equitable world without God. Equitable means not an equal world where there's equal opportunity. That's a good thing. That's what America has exported.

Equitable means it's a forced outcome, equal outcome, so everyone has the same no matter what. And this is exactly what Soros said, and this is from that documentary DVD again. Listen to what he believes is the impediment to the world he envisions.

Though he tends to guard his words and speak in vague generalities, the truth sometimes pierces through. In his 2006 book, The Age of Fallibility, Soros wrote, The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States. Soros' understanding of the world is, effectively, we need to control it.

People cannot take care of themselves. They need to be controlled by a handful of wealthy elites, technocrats, people who know what's best for you better than you do. It doesn't matter which country he touches, where his hundreds of millions of dollars end up.

It's the same outcome. How do we erase the character of this nation and replace it with something artificial and globalist? It's very important to understand that soundbite, that his worldview is the obstacle to a just world, a just world in his mind. This equitable, just world is the United States, and I believe he is exactly accurate on that.

Because the United States is really the last thing standing, not even just the United States, just the conservative Christian aspect of America is the last thing standing between the world going into this, quote, just world that Soros envisions, which is really the world of revelation, where you have a world leader, the Antichrist, all moving toward that. That's what he's moving toward. He may not even know it, he may know it.

I don't know. Can't get into the side of his head and know whether he's directly on the side of Satan from a standpoint of in league with him or not. But that's what he wants. He knows he needs to overthrow the system in America to be able to get peace.

There's no other place in the world that would push back against these plans. And so once America and its Christian influence is overwhelmed, Satan can then bring about his united world in opposition to God. And so George Soros is being used, I believe, by Satan to bring that about.

Now, God set up a system where obedience to him, whether through repent and believe the gospel or any of his commands, obedience to God, worship of him, brings blessing. And disobedience to him brings judgment. Now, the left completely rejects that. They reject the concept of man is sinful.

They reject the idea of God's judgment. They believe that everyone should get the same, equitable, no matter the sinful decisions they make. So just for example, if you've smoked all your life, you've taken drugs all your life, you're grossly, let's say, have taken terrible care of your body, that doesn't matter. You should get free health care by taxpayers to support your health care. In other words, your decisions in life shouldn't matter what you receive.

If you want to, quote-unquote, transition from man to woman, which is impossible, society should pay for those surgeries, so to speak. If you want to have sex outside of marriage and you get pregnant, taxpayers should have to fund your abortion or pay for your child support. If you choose not to get educated and don't work hard in life, you just want to be lazy in life, government should still pay for your housing, your food, your cell phone, everything else. See, that's what the left believes. They don't believe in the idea of reaping and sowing. They want everyone to get that equitable outcome no matter the decisions they make in life because they don't believe in sin and they don't believe in God's judgment. They think it's a just, equitable world where everyone gets the same. So to get to that equitable world, you have to take from those who are productive, who actually work hard and make good decisions, and you have to take what they have and you have to give it to those who don't make good decisions or have made bad decisions or are not making good decisions currently.

It's called socialism, where you are coercively, by force, you create equal outcomes in society. Now again, the biblical worldview operates on the your decisions have consequences for blessing or for consequence, for worse. And God uses the consequences of our sinful or bad decisions in life to teach us that I went the wrong way, I need to follow God.

God's way is the right way, it's the better way, it's the principle of reaping and sowing. And to understand this worldview of Soros and the left, of wanting to create their own world without this equitable world, without God, his interference, without his authority, you need to go no further than really in the Bible in Genesis 11 with the Tower of Babel. That short story, true story, of about ten verses or so, explains what is in the hearts and the motivations behind Soros and those on the left.

It's really, humanity hasn't changed, it's just new people and new faces for our day today. And I actually looked up the Tower of Babel on Wikipedia just to see what they said about it. Now this is a typical thing that the world would say. Here's from Wikipedia, the Tower of Babel narrative in Genesis chapter 11 verses 1 through 9 is an origin myth meant to explain why the world's people speak different languages. It's meant much more than that, but anyway. Biblical scholars see the book of Genesis as mythological and not as a historical account of events. Nonetheless, the story of Babel can be interpreted in terms of its context. So this is what the world believes, unbelievers believe, this is what religious non-believers believe. They don't take the Bible as literally like that. This is actually an actual event in Babel.

It's a myth meant to kind of teach a story, but it's not really true. So I'd like to read those nine verses because it goes a long way toward describing what's behind, what drives Soros and the left. Because the same motivation of those trying to build the city and the tower in Babel is the exact same motivation that drives Soros and the left, Genesis chapter 11. Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words. And by the way, this was after the flood. God had told Noah and his sons to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and move about. Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.

It came about as they journeyed east that they, these people, found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. They said to one another, now just again, notice all the us's and i's in here, just as the words of Satan were in Isaiah chapter 14. They said to one another, come let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.

And they used brick for stone and they used tar for mortar. They said, come let us build for ourselves a city and a tower whose top will reach into heaven and let us make a name for ourselves. Otherwise, we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.

Just a little interjection here. Remember, God had told them to scatter abroad over the face of the earth. So they were doing this in direct opposition to God.

The Lord came down, verse 5, to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. The Lord said, behold, they are one people and they all have the same language and this is what they begin to do and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us, referring to the Holy Spirit there in Christ, let us, Trinity, go down and there confuse their language so that they will not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth and they stopped building the city, therefore its name was called Babel because there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth.

Sounds like they are babbling. And from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth. This right here is the prototype of what is in those unbelievers, like Seiros on the left, who want complete independence from God. They are not just kind of fine to live and let live, they want to shake your clenched fist in the face of God and say, we will do it on our own, not you.

We want to be like God, we want to build a city and tower so we can be totally self-sufficient and out from under the accountability and authority of God. That is what drives Seiros and the left. And the more you harden your heart against God, the deeper into depravity you go and the more irrational paths you follow. And that is why it says in Romans 1, for even though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give him thanks, they became futile in their speculations. This is why the left and people like Seiros, to themselves they seem very, oh, this seems like very good human reasoning, but they are actually fools.

They are futile in their speculations. Their foolish hearts are darkened, professing to be wise, they became fools. So these who go into this deep rejection of God like Seiros and the left, they may be intelligent, so is Satan. They may be clever, so is Satan. They may be highly educated and they may be wealthy like Seiros, they may have great influence, but the Bible says they are fools.

Satan is able to take any lie and create a reasonable sounding argument for it. If you watch some of the testimony of Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court nominee this week, this is what you see. The left is there just hurling accusations at her about abortion, like a woman's right to reproductive health. Who would be against that? Or the Affordable Care Act, universal government-run health care. People are going to die.

That's the ideal health care system. Or they make her religious beliefs, she's Roman Catholic, seem like she's some sort of big man. The dogma, Diane Feinstein said, lives deeply within her. What a terrible thing. Satan is able to take any lie and create a reasonable sounding argument for it.

That is why the broad is the road that leads to destruction and many are on it, because they're deceived by the lie. We have one segment left to talk about Seiros and what drives him in the left, so I hope you stay tuned. Who is George Seiros and what does he believe? Are you religious? No. Do you believe in God?

No. Seiros told the independent newspaper in Great Britain, it is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out. Seiros spends his billions to transform America into godless socialism.

The more you harden your heart against God, the deeper into depravity you go and the more foolish paths you follow. That's what it says in Romans 1, those who reject God and suppress the truth in unrighteousness. They become futile in their speculations and their foolish heart was darkened. That's why George Soros and the left do what they do. That motivates them.

They have hardened their heart to God and they believe that they can create a more equitable world without God. And by the way, a good example of this occurred this week in the town hall. They canceled the second debate between President Trump and Joe Biden, so they each did separate town hall events at the same time.

And Joe Biden could be our next president, and here's what he had to say to one of the questioners in his town hall debate. I'm the proud mom of two girls, 8 and 10. My youngest daughter is transgender. The Trump administration has attacked the rights of transgender people, banning them from military service, weakening nondiscrimination protections, and even removing the word transgender from some government websites. How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S. law? Okay, so the presuppositions in the questions are that transgenderism is a good thing, and that anything that would push back against the sin of transgenderism or homosexuality would be an evil thing, would be dangerous. How will Joe Biden answer this question?

I will flat out just change the law, eliminate those executive orders, number one. You may recall, I'm the guy who said, I was raised by a man who, I remember I was being dropped off. My dad was a high school-educated, well-read man who was a really decent guy, and I was being dropped off to get an application in the center of our city, Wilmington, Delaware, the corporate capital of the world at the time. And these two men, I'm getting out to get an application to be a lifeguard in the African-American community because there was a big swimming pool complex. And these two men, well-dressed, leaned up and hugged one another and kissed one another. I'm getting out of the car at the light, and I turned to my dad. My dad looked at me and said, Joey, it's simple.

They love each other. The idea that an eight-year-old child or a ten-year-old child decides, you know, I decided I want to be transgender. That's what I think I'd like to be.

It may make my life a lot easier. There should be zero discrimination. And what's happening is too many transgender women of color are being murdered.

They're being murdered. I mean, I think it's up to now 17. Don't hold me to that number, but it's higher now. And that's just this year. And so I promise you, there is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied, your daughter or daughters, whichever, one or two, one, your daughter, that your other daughter has a right to be and do.

None, zero. And by the way, my son Beau passed away, was the attorney general of the state of Delaware. He was the guy who got the first transgender law passed in the state of Delaware. And because of a young man who became a woman, who worked for him in the attorney general's office.

Yeah. Satan is able to take any lie that transgenderism and homosexuality, God calls those things sin and terrible for humans who go down that road of transgenderism and homosexuality. That's what God says about it.

But Satan is able to take any lie and influence those who follow his worldview to create a reasonable sounding argument about it. You heard Joe Biden do that very deftly. You know, my dad and I saw two men kissing each other. They just love each other. There's the rationalization for that. Eight year old should be able to choose which sex she wants or he or whatever he or she is transitioning from trying to be. Think about that. An eight year old? An eight year old being able to make that decision saying, oh, you know what? My parents, I want to be a boy, not a girl.

Really? That's what Joe Biden believes, that eight year olds should be making those kinds of decisions that actually can actually be made. And then later on, I can't remember the next example was about something else, but it was just one lie after the other, but appealing to human reasoning and makes it sound like, oh, well, yeah, no one should be discriminated against. That would be a bad thing. You know, no one should be, oh, yeah, black trans women.

They shouldn't be murdered for being trans. Of course not. See, this is what Satan and Soros and those on the left are so adept at doing. America's top destroyer is not necessarily George Soros.

Satan is America's top destroyer. It says, I am the door, Christ said. If anyone enters through me, he will be saved and will go out and find pasture. There's the good thing.

There's the good news. Next verse, verse 10. The thief, Satan, only comes to steal and kill and destroy.

Jesus said, I have come that they may have life and might find it abundant, might have it abundantly. Satan is a destroyer of anything good and godly, and Soros is simply in those who jump into the depth of depravity and God rejection they have, they're simply ambassadors for him. As Christians are ambassadors for Christ, as it says in 2 Corinthians, unbelievers who jump in and choose to go to this level of depravity are just ambassadors for Satan. He has rejected God and lives his life in complete opposition to him. So maybe it shouldn't be surprising.

It's just that they go into a depth of depravity that we're not typically used to from the typical non-believer who lives down the street. Now what Soros and maybe even Satan don't realize, or they reject, is that God will overthrow their wicked schemes through the return of Christ someday when he comes to judge and reign. Now they will get to that one world, quote, just equitable society, this open society that George Soros is working for.

They will get to it. I don't know whether during Soros' lifetime or in the future, because Revelation says it will get there. But it's not going to work, because Christ is going to rule to return, to rule and reign and judge. And this is why, after hearing this program today, that each one of us needs to test ourselves whether we are in the faith. And if you are, stay close to Christ and follow him with your whole heart. If you're not, you need to do what Jesus said, obey his command to repent and believe in the Gospel, believe in who he is. He's the Son of God and Savior of mankind, because once you do that, God forgives you, God adopts you into his family, he gives you eternal life, and then he starts to transform you through the renewing of your mind and sanctify you, so you go the right way and not into the depths of depravity and are deceived by these deceivers in the world. The most important thing is really not defeating Satan and Searle's agenda, but the most important thing is receiving the gift of life that God offers through Christ. And once you've received that gift, the most important thing is to become more like Christ. So again, Hebrews 3, take care, brethren, that there not be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God, but encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called today, so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

What drives Searle's on the left? A depth of depravity into sin and God-rejection. Thank you for joining us today here on The Christian Ruleview. Again, just a reminder to take advantage of this offer to get the Searle's resource bundle. Understand this man's worldview.
