So what is the concern then Travis for Christians who love these guys who follow them, who are being influenced by them. What's important to understand about their their worldview. What's really important understand that they are not true allies with the Christian world you may appear to be at least seem to be at a superficial level, perhaps, but I really concerned for Welford for young people but for all people who find some some voice and these guys know.

Again, I as well express I get it I II can sometimes cheer some of the things that they say that you're so clear and such as a bold, unapologetic pushback against the system. You might say that we find ourselves in today but my concern is that to close alliance with these types of thinkers and spokesman is actually an unnecessary and real distraction for Christians because it's only in Christ and Christ alone that Colossians 23 and him are hidden, not just most of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, but all of them so finding Christ to be our champion Christ to be our spokesman Christ to be our example for all things. That's where I want to point Christians is to him and not to cultural social warriors like these guys even if some of the things I say sounds similar, I think we really need to not just on not just look at the similarities and what we find some sympathy with when you look at the differences we need to see there are distinctions between the way we brought up the one with the autonomous individual.

We do not. The Bible does not teach it.

We do not want the teacher in force, reinforcing anybody's thinking human autonomy. We want to understand that we are under the law of God. That is the best, safest, most joyful place that human conscience can be is underneath the law of God in Christ underneath the law of God, out of Christ, not in Christ. That is a terrifying place to be, as Martin Luther that was a part of his own testimony that drove him to Christ. But in Christ, not to be under the law of God into to live out his commandments, that is, that's a great joy in such ultimate freedom to have accountability, responsibility to him. You're not gonna find that in any system promoted by Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro some concern about that.

There is a superficial feel-good experience that many people have as you follow the videos in the teaching of these kind of in-your-face pushback of the social warriors. It may feel good for the moment, but the end of the day, and again like Colossians 2 says 223 they have only an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body in a year. A lot of that in Jordan Peterson's just suck it up Paco or whatever he will make your bed. Life is suffering. Get used to make some of yourself. That's Colossians 223 right there but none of that has any value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh. That's my real concern the end of the day. Peterson Shapiro, they are just yet another dead end and that they will share an eternal fate with the leftists that they oppose so I wanted to want to turn Christians not to those, thinkers though spokesman when want to turn to Christ for salvation and him and him alone this program in this ministry is Christian world view.I'm David
