The nomination process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court has been the biggest story of the year in America...


Seven lessons from the Supreme Court nomination of John Brett Cavanaugh that the topic will discuss today right here on the Christian Realty radio program worthy mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christians and to share the good news that all people can be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ, I'm David Wheaton, the host of the program and our website is the Christian world will thank you for joining us today is a very momentous day in America today. It's Saturday, October 6, 2018 and this is the day that will be remembered for a long time because today is the day that the Senate is going to either vote to confirm or reject the nomination of Judge Brett Cavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Now this nominated nation process of Brett Cavanaugh to fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court has been the biggest story of the year in America and I would say by far, and for good reason to.

If confirm today Cavanaugh will have lifetime tenure and be the deciding vote on the nation's highest court, which is a nine person body, which rules on some of the most pivotal issues of our day with regard to religious freedom, abortion and many other issues that affect each and every one of us, he would be the boat that would tip the court more toward the originalist view of the Constitution. You could say conservative. All I do like to put the court in terms of you know that Democrat or Republican, but he would tip it for five judges who be more originalist in their judicial philosophy will get into that later. But the ferocious intensity of this nomination process, one from hot very hot to white-hot one in the waning stages of the nominating process. Dem Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who was the group.

The body that was examining whether to recommend Cavanaugh to a full vote in the Senate when Diane Funston unexpectedly dropped a bombshell at allegation from a woman named Christine Mallozzi Ford was a woman who claimed that Cavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a party 36 years ago when Cavanaugh was 17 and she was 15, so dramatic accusations and denials were respectively made by Ms. Ford and Mr. Cavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week we talked about that some of the program leading to 1/7 FBI investigation being open to investigate the background in these allegations against Cavanaugh and this week just on Thursday they ultimately found no corroborating evidence that this assault took place on Ford by Cavanaugh, there has been endless media coverage or wall-to-wall on this particular issue. There is been passionate speeches on both sides by senators and many other people there have been nonstop emotional demonstrations by protesters all over Washington DC in the halls of Congress, even death threats. They will characterize this is real life drama that's Taking Pl. in America right now and now today as I mentioned this at seven is scheduled to vote to either confirm or deny Brett Cavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.

So whatever the result, there have been many important takeaways from the proceedings here and perhaps none more obvious than the worldview divide in this country over the issue of presumption of innocence for the accused.

The Democrat leadership and party loyalist do not is been very clear. Do not adhere to this bedrock tenet of the American legal system, evidenced by their their statements with a bit clearly said in their twitter rallying cry hashtag. We believe her. You can put in parentheses with no corroborating evidence. So this week and on the Christian world you're going to discuss seven lessons from the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Cavanaugh, and these are lessons that impact each and every one of us in our own lives as well. So just to get to a little background first about the asking the question, why has the country become so transfixed and divided over Brett Cavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Think there is a there's a pretty straightforward, that because the left religion and their socialist utopian vision for America is being disrupted through this nomination of Brett Cavanaugh.

Their stated goal you'll see this in sciences.

You see people holding signs in Washington DC from the leftist and white paper patriarchy. That's their goal to vote to topple that what they perceive as a a white a male dominated a Christian hope, oppression in this country and Donald Trump who may whom the left irrationally hates has nominated a man who is a constitutional originalist when it comes to the Constitution for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, which as I said tip the balance of the court in that particular more. The conservative favor. So on one side you have John Roberts Clarence Thomas Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito does the for more conservative judges on the Supreme Court. On the other side. The four that are more liberal are Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Sonia Soto, Mayor and Stephen Breyer, so that's 44 now you're nominating a man, Brett Cavanaugh, who was much more closely sides with the first group of more conservative judges and this is completely sending the left into a state of apoplexy because their favored means of imposing their religion on the country is through the courts rather than through elections or orb laws being passed in Congress disease is much easier to by judicial decree get something done. There is to get consensus of people think about some of the past court cases that have been pivotal in this country like Grove East versus Wade. Legalizing the killing of the board, or just several years ago, the Supreme Court ruling in favor of redefining marriage to be not just between two people of the opposite sex. But two people of the same sex are major cases that affect this country.

Everything in this country educational system. Everything in future cases that that will be litigated and what with regard to religious freedom when it when it comes in conflict with the, the, the homosexual rights and baking cakes do do do Christian business owners have to service homosexual weddings. This is a these are cases that will come before the Supreme Court the right to bear arms. Second amendment is a is a big one. If you have the court slanted in weight of the left.

This was a liberal justice being on their all those those cases will be ruled very very differently so that the left is in complete panic and accrete complete outrage that they are going to lose control of the Supreme Court and as I mentioned last week. If remember that your disrupting your interfering with their religion and people don't like the religion interfered with humanism man may. Humanism is the religion were man is God, not God being God man is God in politics is their means of achieving their utopian heaven on earth. Goals know that they they believe that through political activism comes utopia in a collective salvation for people who don't believe in individual salvation before God. Your your save collectively as you you work toward the common good in society through political activism and so any ends at any any means justify the ends be that the end goal is their use of humanistic utopia any means are justified to get there.

The ends justify the means. Church is the halls of government.

That's what you see. This week they're just there altar church there in the halls of government. There doing citizens in protesting and in rallies outside this is how they do their worship there sacrament deceiving their signs. It's about abortions about homosexuality. Transgender is him its multiculturalism.

It's environmentalism.

The elders of their religion are leftist politicians like Pres. Obama, and in the Clintons and all those members on the Democrat side in the Senate Judiciary. They're very radical that they don't have a traditional worldview. With regard to America at all very socialistic worldview that their elders are trained in their seminars, which are the Ivy League schools in the elite colleges their sacred texts are the New York Times and the Washington Post in the leftist calm commentators on MSNBC either waiting for their Messiah. Someday a world leader who's going to create this utopia.

So this is been a major disruption of their religion. And this all started change not only when Sen. Feinstein dropped that bombshell of this accusation against Cavanaugh from Christine Mallozzi Ford, but when some of the Republican senators and the Republicans have a slight majority and in the Senate and so does the pure majority that vote that will either confirm or deny Cavanaugh's that was some of the protesters approached Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in the elevator during the Senate Judiciary committing committee hearings and cause him to wobble here so that sounded like when they confronted Jeff Flake is blank. Okay, that that pretty much summarize what it's been like in Washington DC this past week. Imagine Jeff Flake senators standing there in elevator with this woman bawling in front of him telling about her purported sexual so we don't know if that's true or not but saying that if you basically vote yes in favor of Cavanaugh. You don't care about me because I've been sexually assaulted. And by the way, the implication is that Christine Mallozzi Ford was telling the truth about her sexual assault you don't believe her. You don't believe me this is been what the climate has been like in Washington this week so this is clearly this whole nomination process of Cavanaugh's clearly exposed the worldview divide in our country is a mess.

You have the on the court is the originalist view of the Constitution versus the deconstructionist view. The Constitution is a living that document must be changed and altered according to our times its pro-life people were pro-life and one originalist judge versus those who are pro-abortion. It's the as the left would would would turn people like a Cavanaugh. He's the privileged patriarchy us with a column privileged patriarchy white Christian male wealthy privileged patriarchy versus the other side which we see in these protests there about race, identity politics, race, gender, sexuality, class, that's what the battle is over here. It's really between traditional America that believes in the Constitution.

The presumption of innocence. Christianity free markets as national sovereignty. That kind of thing that the traditional America believes in versus socialist America represented by the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee like Diane Feinstein and Richard Blumenthal and Cory Booker and Camilla Harrison Mallozzi. Her owner from Hawaii and Chris Coons and Amy call Bashar here in Minnesota, the Clintons, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and and others who are just a vow Democrat Socialist that's what this this is about. In this they believe this model then they they put they believe the smallest Marxist model of is the oppressor versus the oppressed and there on the side of the oppressed.

They perceive the white Christian male patriarchy as being oppressive in this country and that needs to be toppled, Will get into the seven lessons from the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett and Kevin are you listening, social justice is the gospel issue. This is become the mantra of many evangelicals rectifying perceived inequities of race, gender and sexuality, poverty, immigration, amongst others, is considered a top priority. But what exactly is social justice is working for social justice. The biblical mandate and application of the gospel. Caleb Eisner has written an insightful booklet entitled social justice. How good intentions undermined justice and gospel.

The left is gone very, very far left the gun into a socialist vision for this country picked up the the Marxist ideology of this is the oldest of the problem with this country is that the white male heterosexual Christian overpressure is oppressing everyone else that needs to be toppled so that's that's their view and that's why this is so this is such a disruption to them and there is that nurse resisting this so hard because they know what's at stake. A lifetime appointment. They also know what's at stake with how these judicial decisions on from the Supreme Court will come out if Cavanaugh is is confirmed they'll come out against it will be a repudiation of everything they hold true to their worldview. So the first lesson I think we can learn from this Supreme Court nomination of Brett Cavanaugh to say, confirmations nomination, not quite confirmation yet is that number one elections matter because the worldview of our leaders impacts every single one of us. If you don't believe that. See the left believes that completely that elections matter, and sometimes Christians can think well you know were were citizens of heaven and you know is the both sides of the same. They're both bad which which may be true but but there are sides that are worse bad and the other side okay there is differences there. That's an easy lazy statement to make, but the left believes that elections matter matter feckless here from Linda Saar store. She's a very well known leftist political activists and and look at her talk about the worldview what's at stake and what she's trying to promote having women get up liberal women get up and and overturn this patriarchy. One of the things that we wear our mission was to change the narrative, and to refrain this conversation it was not going to be business as usual.

Every FrontPage in America above the fold was about dissent and the power of women. We have been occupying Senate offices for the last three weeks we have engaged in civil disobedience. We have engaged in mobilization.

This is not just about Brett Cavanaugh where still focus on midterm election that we will win back the house in 2018 and come January 19, 2019, we will come with an agenda. We are brilliant we are strategic we have a plan and we need to hold those accountable who work for us so we are prepared and we want this administration to know that women will not sit back, we will not go back I will not allow our rights to be taken 40 years back and this is what this lifetime appointment of Brett Cavanaugh does. This is serious is a generational fight and the Republicans want to swap Supreme Court and were saying absolutely not. Not on our watch is not to be in Washington DC this is a global movement. We have our global chapters of the women's market. Global will be joining us.

There you go. She couldn't have described room will be better. This is a global movement. This is globalism. This is were using the guise of identity politics and women's rights work in a vote were organizing or doing sit ins were trying to capture the front page of the newspaper. These people know elections matter because that's how they can impose their worldview on the rest of us want you to imagine for a second right now that if Hillary Clinton had been elected if she were our president right now and she had the ability to choose to Supreme Court justices as president trumps have the ability to do how do you think she would've chosen what sort of worldview of that that judge you think she would've chosen for the Supreme Court. While it is pretty clear you dear member Misha you should if your believer remember how religious liberty were assaulted at every turn. During Pres. Obama's term and how every single speech he gave me that everyone administration ever they could just stumble over themselves to promote the homosexual agenda could never not be mentioned in any speech and Supreme Court appointments. By the way, that was the sole reason that many people actually voted for Trump, even if they dislike his personal manner.

They knew how important that that particular privileges for the present, to be able to nominate justices to the Supreme Court. They knew it. And so you think you like him personally. They knew how important that is.

And were in that moment right now he's arty nominees Artie got one. Confirm easel Neil Gore search and now he's nearly getting a second Supreme Court justice confirmed that would literally tip the court for decades likely you never know what happens, people die, things happen, but is definitely a huge moment in American history from that at this particular time, and he kept his promise, his campaign promise to denominate originalist judges missed Many other promises. As I mentioned the program the last couple weeks he's done tax cuts. These his help with employment in this country. He's made fairer deals United States and were not paying our way, way more than our fair share with NATO and will and trade deals. He's he's worked to secure our borders from illegal immigration hasn't built the wall. Yep, I think you probably try to get there. He's defeating Islamic terrorism. He moved the US Embassy to is in Israel to Jerusalem and mean presence in talking about this is just words. Trump if she did it. He he remove the individual mandate from Obama care that forces you by the government law to have to buy some sort of insurer, health insurance plan has minimal to dismantle Obama care, but that's probably the most key part of it is the individual mandate graphic I think Trump has been the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan and maybe he's more conservative in his policies.

At least not maybe in his personal life, but in his policies than Ronald Reagan. So I give him great credit for instituting policies that other presidents and other politicians wouldn't even dare to to bring up the heat, he doesn't have a whole lot of fear about what people are going to think of him or making decisions. He does what what the consequences could be. He has convictions about things and he just tries to implement them now that being said, just as a one minute aside, I received several emails last week criticizing me for pointing out the presidents personal morality that is been the three marriages adultery paying off a porn star lewd comments on that bus and the acts that Hollywood thing that I point out that he has divisive rhetoric when he said about John McCanna like a people who get captured you someone who who during Vietnam was was captured and spent five years in prison camp.

I don't like it when he mocks people in the media. I don't like his pride to think it's it's sinful you talk, but he made everything so great is narcissism is God inject himself and everything I don't like that about him. I think it's I think it's biblically wrong, all of which he never apologizes for I think distracts from his great accomplishments. I think he's doing a great job from a policy standpoint, but he risks his future governing any, most especially, he test the patience of God by by doing these things if they're in the past by being unrepentant about them as I thought about this week.

I thought about some of these you shouldn't.

You shouldn't point out the presidents moral failings are these the divisive rhetoric he has thought about Scripture and never in the Bible as the great men of Scripture… Put that's why the Bible never excuses or overlooks their sinful behavior, even from the most well-known heroes of the faith, and so need.

Neither should we think about Abraham.

What a great man of faith.

He is the bedrock of a person of faith. He believed God, and it was reckoned to him for righteousness. The father of the Jewish people and yet the Bible portrays him as is having two wives concubines. He lied about his wife Sarah told told people that she was his sister. What is the Bible do that want to just have a perfect, whitewash and portray him as perfectly or or Noah. Saved he and seven others were saved from the flood.

A man of of faith and righteousness.

Yet it talks about his drunkenness or Sampson. Sampson was a great man of of Scripture get the Bible is very clear about.

He was a lustful man, he married a Philistine will someone who was egregiously wrong to his his Jewish parents or David a man after God's own heart.

What more could be said about a person than that David is clearly portrayed in Scripture as an adulterer and a murderer of Bathsheba's husband or Solomon his son is ahead of but what thousand 700 wives and 300 concubines or something like that is a serial adulterer and put polygamist worship false idols. At the end of his life or Peter in the New Testament who denied Jesus Christ denied Christ at his most critical moment of need.

When he was about to be sentenced to crucifixion on the cross. Peter hypocritically avoided demo the Gentiles when he when Paul called him out on that or pull himself, he persecuted Christians, but all of these things. The Bible portrays why why is that because when you excuse and when you overlook and when you rationalized seen in other people's lives or your self.

It only leads to more sin and more trouble for you so we can't do that yet.

We can say present trumpets and a fantastic job on so many policies, but we cannot overlook when he clearly violates God's word in his personal morality and his rhetoric or in his pride. You cannot do that. That is un-biblical. To do that is not is is again is not that you vote for someone else because he's like that. It just that you can pray for the man.

Pray that he do better pray that he come to have a humility in his life. A sense of repentance in his life because he be an even better president if he did that, then you have a personal leadership that will be very positive, but I divert will get back to the rest of our lessons after the second break of the day here in the Christian real view on David Wheaton in his DVD, the death of discernment. Mike Gendron uses this apt analogy from AW tells red cells are like faith that carry life-giving oxygen to every part of the body white cells. On the other hand, are discernment they pounce upon dead and toxic matter and carry it out of the body.

Each member in the body of Christ is white blood cell, we need to identify doctrinal error and make sure it gets out of the body.

That's the only way that the body of Christ can remain strong. The death of discernment DVD contains two messages by Mike Gendron. You can order it for donation of any amount to the Christian world.

Right now you have a very very different Supreme Court of very very different America so I'm asked. Despite what I say about Pres. Trump personally I'm very thankful that he is the president of this country because if you Clinton in office. Not only would you get un-biblical policies. We also get the on the young biblical personal behavior as well.

With Pres. Trump you you get much better, much more. Policies that more closely approximate with the biblical worldview for government, even despite the fact he could do better. Personally, so leave it at that.

But not just presidential elections matter by the way, but all elections is imagined.

If right now as well. I was to ask you to imagine if Perez is by Hillary Clinton was president will imagine if Republicans want the majority in the U.S. Senate right now they would be able to get Cavanaugh through no way. So those will elections matter in your state in your local races matter in your school board matters because the worldview of who of our leaders are elected leaders impacts our lives. And that's why it matters. We need to be informed and we need to vote for candidates who don't. They don't need to be pastors of your church. I get that people said to me, open Trump as a pet. I get that it's obvious I know that but we need to vote for candidates who most closely approximate a Christian worldview on the issues with their own palace with what they advocate in their in their policies. The second lesson from the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Cavanaugh, is that the left today rejects the presumption of innocence of innocence so you you used to have the younger innocent unless proven guilty with evidence mean this is a bedrock principle of our legal system. By the way, going all the way back to the Bible. Second Corinthians 13 says every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses. Hebrews 1027. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Capital punishment needed witnesses not just accusation. John 816, even in your lot is been written.

Jesus said that the testimony of two men is true. Then he says I am he who testifies about myself and the father who sent me testifies about me. So this is a bedrock principle, not just America but of Scripture and Senate Majority Leader McConnell said that this week should not a fundamentally un-American precedent.

Judge Cavanaugh's right to basic fairness does not disappear just because some disagree with his judicial philosophy. Our society is not a place where uncorroborated allegations of misconduct from nearly 40 years ago. Allegations which are vigorously can nullify someone's career or destroy their reputation. That was the son is currently known for my certainly hope not that that's a very bad place for America to go whence people don't have the presumption of innocence anymore, so there is no corroborating evidence of these accusations made by Christine Bossi Ford against cabinet Cavanaugh that she that he sexually assaulted her 36 years ago, but the left did not care the date they wouldn't vote for Cavanaugh, even if the accusations were false. It didn't matter for for them.

It was just about convincing a few of those senators and between that could go either way on the vote by saying that well. It was bring up his accusation and maybe to cause them doubt and not to vote for him. They only brought up the accusation against him because the truth matters to some people, not to them because it vote no. Anyway and so once the accusation didn't seem like it had corroborating evidence. Then the left transition to well this man doesn't the way he responded to the accusations when he was gavest testimony.

He was too angry and this is not a judicial temperament had exchanges with Sen. Feinstein, the center closure with others that I thought went over line. He was clearly belligerent and aggressive, angry, made you wonder about his suitability in my case, yes it was behavior that was not for a person with the attached on any court, much less a supreme windowed judge capital with all partisan left-wing conspiracy beyond everything.

I think that was the disqualifying moment okay so that was a disqualify moment is the accusation is not true. Well we tried that one. But the way he responded to a defending his his name, his family, his future career from false accusation. He was too too emotional about it while he was emotional and I will say that you may be a little bit too emotional in the way you interact with some of the senators was was young I was seeing the Supreme Court justice to that before but you can you can look at the man say he was under tremendous, tremendous pressure again try to defend his name and his reputation in his life and business. Sometimes when you're under that kind of pressure that probably none of us will ever be under in our entire lives.

You can you can understand how the man momentarily could have sort of the out of body experience. He appeared to be having about what he apologize for he wrote in the Wall Street Journal that he said yeah I might've gotten too emotional and Nina but was it was a tough time so at least he has the self-awareness of admitting that he can go over the line. That's that's that's that's good news about someone not that someone sins, but that the repentant about that.

That's the good news.

And so my question is with regard to the second lesson that the left rejects the presumption of innocence is that why was she even allowed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee without evidence mean if you don't have any evidence to accusation why did they even let her testify before the nation in the first place so that this whole idea of we believe her.

As I mentioned earlier, that's very un-American very on biblical is dangerous for innocent people. It is saying that your guilty and go ahead and try to prove your innocence but we really don't care because were going to you're going to even lose everything because of his accusation and the reason they don't care is because again, the goal is to topple the white Christian patriarchy in the in this country and any means are acceptable to get that accomplished. Whether it's destroying some of reputation were false accusation. It's okay that that's exactly what this this is about right in line with the whole identity. Victim politics field you get a white privileged well-educated man and therefore he's what's wrong with America.

We to take them down there. The oppressors of women and minorities, immigrants doesn't matter. There's evidence that Cavanaugh.

She did this. I don't know whether he should give it did is no evidence that he did but doesn't even matter to them whether he did it. He just needs to be topple because he's part of this white Christian patriarchy. So now if evidence arises in the future that he did lie under oath that he should be impeached, he should that that is wrong. He should be impeached with. There's no evidence that in the first place.

In the meantime, you wonder whether there be any rep repercussions for this accusation. If it turns out to be false may affect effort, Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard professor asked about replications for false accusation. It turns out that she made it up out of whole cloth that she never met Cavanaugh that she was several years old that she along with others or by herself simply made up story. The FBI should conclude that she should be tried for perjury and she should be sent to prison. This becomes a very important education moment because we have to teach the women of the world and the men of the world that there is no genetically linked aspect of telling the truth that women make up stories out of whole cloth about cross events that never occurred to me always. Julia is Alan Dershowitz say he's actually a Democrat or give at least he's honest enough to say that we need to have the presumption of innocence in this country and those who do false accusations need to be prosecuted for it because it destroys people's lives. Okay seven lessons from the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Cavanaugh.

The first is elections matter because the world your leaders impacts us. The second lesson is the left rejects the presumption of innocence.

The third lesson is you need to protect yourself from situations or false accusation is possible that I thought about this. This issue of accusation and this is exactly how Satan operates. Satan is what the accuser of the brother that's what he's called revelations 1210 now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down. He who accuses them before God day and night, and this is what Satan is known more in other words, a person is most like Satan when they're throwing out accusations against people all the time. False accusations against people all the time it and that's why we need everyone listening today. Don't put yourself in situations that makes it ripe for false accusations. That means you need to be very careful about being alone with people of the opposite sex. Maybe someone you don't know someone who's who's differs from you worldview wise may be in your workplace or whatever, especially in the sexual realm keep business business. Don't put yourself in situations basically be situationally aware. Another words that false accusation is a tactic of not only Satan but people in this country who will try to harm you for no good reason. Now the good news for Christians is in the spiritual realm enough to worry about this Satan, the accuser of our brethren can be before God day and night saying I must, you're a sinner I'm a sinner and how much we send you nephew been saved.

We don't deserve this or that, but the pebble says in first John two if anyone sins believer, we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ the righteous, and he himself is the propitiation the satisfaction for our sins not only for ours only but those of the whole world. Another words, Jesus Christ stands as our advocate before the father answering the accusations of Satan telling God know that since been covered. He's been forgiven.

He deserves eternal life based on what I've done for that person. The believers are not harmed by Satan's accusations. But in the earthly realm we need to protect ourselves in the potential of it last three or four lessons after the spinal break the day on the person will here's my kindred fee, kneeling his DVD and apostasy will see how apostasy is the result of Satan's relentless attacks on the church will also look at four steps that characterize a churches drift into apostasy, then will look at the history of the church, a chronological development of the Roman Catholic religion and its drift into apostasy and lastly and most importantly, what are you and I to do in the midst of this great apostasy on the growing ecumenical movement.

This is become the mantra of many evangelicals rectifying perceived inequities of race, gender, sexuality, poverty, and immigration amongst others is considered a top priority. But what exactly is social justice is working for social justice. The biblical mandate and application of the gospel Kalb Eisner has written an insightful booklet entitled social justice. How good intentions undermine justice in gospel.

Also included in this revised 44 page booklet is a copy of the just-released statement on social justice in the gospel. You can order the social justice booklet or donation of any amount to the Christian will go to the Christian world.or call one AAA 46 2233 or write to Box 401 Excelsior, MN 55331 seven lessons from the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Cavanaugh, that is the topic were discussing today here on the Christian will be radio program and again the sun is going to be voting whether to confirm or reject Cavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice today. This afternoon, so we need to be praying for this situation. Knowing that God is the one Bible says he put leaders and empower God as one who is sovereign over all. We can trust him. But when you pray because if he doesn't get confirmed this would be a huge victory for the worldview of the left and the side that opposes everything about God and his word rejects it not. Not that Cavanaugh some pastor messing now you don't even know whether what he did as a as a youngster I was true or not doesn't look like it it it was because is no evidence supported a thing as a perfect man by any stretch but he represents it in an originalist view of the Constitution or not this new Marxist worldview that's that's overtaken on the left and in this country so that the lessons are so far elections matter. The left rejects the presumption of innocence.

Number two, number three is protect yourself from situations where false accusation as possible and thus number three number four is lesson is how you live in your youth matters that have been made very clear. No, if Brett Cavanaugh hadn't. Admittedly, in his own words been kind of into that that that that prep school party lifestyle when he was a teenager there would been far less credence to these accusations against him, it compromised it cast doubt undo his reputation a bit. That he was drinking and in the way he lived when he was a teenager, not nothing. After the faculty she can.

The court are not because he was drinking as a teenager.

Nothing at all, but it put doubt in people's minds about him so the point is, is not like oh well until your night until you're an adult, it doesn't really matter know it doesn't matter to me. This almost potentially could have ended his career and in his harmed his reputation regardless of what happens when they gets in the Supreme Court or not. That's the sad thing, but the Bible says this over and over again you please ask Ecclesiastes 12. Remember your creator in the days of your youth proffers 18 here, my son, your father's instruction. Don't forsake your mother's teaching.

They are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck, my son, if sinners entice you don't consent second Chronicles 69 for the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth that he may strongly support those whose heart is completely his. Luke 12 there is nothing covered up. That will not be revealed and hidden that will not be known. What you say in the dark will be heard in the light and what you've whispered in the inner rooms we proclaimed upon the house tops I mean the obvious application here is where to fear God and keep his commandments from our youngest day self parent-teacher kids to live a holy life exemplify it for them soon come back. Sin comes back to haunt you. Even was Dunn's in your your teenage days and if if you haven't lived an exemplary life in your teenage years used is not an opportunity proclaim the gospel to your children, repent of it, for it asked them, tell them that God how God forgave you and how you living a life to serve God is so much better than the chaos that was caused by living another way you God is always watching and weighing our lives. We don't get away with anything and so with that said that's a big lesson here is how you live in your youth actually does matter. The fifth lesson, moving along quickly to to get all these lessons in his eye and hearing the test when this was related to the forces that I don't see any good reason to drink alcohol again, the consumption of alcohol by Brett Cavanaugh was brought up regularly in this in this case. Again, cast doubt upon Wolfie drink that much alcohol, you must not known what he was doing and maybe he did sexually assault blahs before that was kind the line of reasoning, and in the Bible so clear on on this and something I think is being lost amongst evangelical Christians in America today is become much more common to not be careful to not not drink alcohol is a reason Christians in everyone and in Christ day drink wine was to avoid the sickness through contaminated water, that's no longer an issue. Today, we don't need drink wine or beer for health purposes.

Alcohol use to be avoided by Christians because of the that did the temptation or sin of drunkenness in the leading of a weaker pulled believer into sin, and that standard is is basically ignored. Now I mean even trump we talked about some of his no negative personal. Here's one real positive thing about his personal life. Listen to what he says here I'm not a drinker. I can honestly say I never had a beer in my life. Okay, right. One of my only good traits I don't whatever they're looking for some that I never had a glass of alcohol. Alcohol is here for whatever reason. Can you imagine if I had what a mess.

I think you see there's wisdom and what he saying here lot wisdom is backed up by Scripture.

Therefore be careful how you walk, Ephesians 5, not as unwise but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Listen to this verse. Don't be foolish understand what the will of the Lord is don't get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be rather filled with the Holy Spirit. Proverbs 31 hear the words of king Lemuel, the Oracle which his mother taught him what will my son. What will my son in my womb, my vows do not give your strength to women or your ways to that which destroys kings.

It is not for kings old mule is not for kings to drink wine or for rulers to desire strong drink, for they will drink, and forget what is discrete and pervert the rights of all the afflicted. Proverbs 23. Do not look at the wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly at the last two bytes, like a serpent. It stings like a viper. Your eyes will see strange things in your mind will utter perverse things as so many things in Scripture that this lesson is what is the good reason to drink alcohol today. I don't see one. There's only danger there's only temptation to sin is only bad things that can result in we can see this with the Cavanaugh case. There were some drinking that was taking place when he was young it cast doubt upon his character because of it. Okay the final lesson is this than six lesson is this mean I get to the final one is ultimately the final one open to you to give me one more good reason I'll good lesson to learn from the Supreme Court nominations will end it was six today is that we better be engaged. Christians with our biblical worldview in the gospel or were going to lose what America was and is barely hanging onto today and and that means we need strong biblical marriages. We need to raise children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

We need churches that preach the full counsel of God. We need Christians with the sharp biblical worldview to leave their homes and churches and to influence every area of society, the workplace, we need them to be voting we need and be engaged. We can have isolationism. We've seen the worldview of the left and their intent in this Cavanaugh nomination process and so we need to obey first Corinthians 16. To be on the alert. Be informed, stand firm in the faith.

Have a sharp typical worldview act like men, not like a boy be mature and be strong and let all that we do be done in love. We are in a war in this country for the heart of this country and not even the country is the foremost thing that we are in a war as an Lassiter's for God in this world to save souls so let's be deadly serious about what are role in our responsibility is here on earth.
