CNG radio for today's culture and timeless truths come together is reason relevant content apologetics worldview and answers to the questions that you need to know need to know from Alex McFarlane ministries. This is true for a new generation radio and now the man who preached in 50 states and 50 days, writer, and advocate for Christian apologetics Dr. Alex McFarlane Blessed is the nation's God is the Lord and the people chosen for rezoning.

That Psalm 3012 will come back to that blessed is the nation. The word blessed or blessed happy prosperous safe stable Bible has a lot set up blessedness. The Bible speaks about when Christ returns and there's heaven on earth. One day during the millennium. Every man will safely relax and be at rest under the shade of his own tree that's a state of blessedness.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord hi Alex McFarlane, you're welcome to the truth for a new generation broadcast and I want to talk a little bit about Psalm 33 and I want to talk about the rise of socialism in the nation, and I want to talk a little bit about where we are as a country not only culturally, economically, politically, but really, ultimately, spiritually and out what I believe are some of the problems with socialism and what we can do about that but I do welcome to the program. I trust you're having a good month so far strangers. The world has become, and that you know it's funny, I was preparing for the radio show and I went to my mailbox and I got a letter from Planned Parenthood.

And this does relate to how you know people see the country right now on just every damn guy get dozens and occasionally over 100 emails and when they were people saying or what is going on. We've witnessed the riots of the black lives matter movement, and we've witnessed the tearing down of statues and burning of the American flag and now municipalities are taking down statues that many of which have been up for decades if not more than a century to honor the dead of of World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, honoring not only the founders but the veterans that have helped preserve our freedom, and it seems to be crumbling all around us. Why is that I get this letter in my mailbox from Planned Parenthood and it says dear friend exploiting a global pandemic to score political points is just shameful but that's exactly what our president is doing. Since Planned Parenthood and this is underlined and it's an appeal for money for Planned Parenthood, which of course I would not give money to this organization that makes millions of dollars a year off of the killing of babies, but it says this and this is underlined that abortion is essential, time sensitive healthcare pregnancy can't be put on hold, but states like Texas have already made it illegal to provide this type of healthcare and its underlying abortion is essential, time sensitive healthcare. They say and so they want my donation money to help murder more babies is not something healthcare. How can it be healthcare, when it results in a homicide. The loss of human life, but friend that relates to why we are not living in the state of some 30 3/12 will not blessed right now were not stable free, safe, prosperous, and the Lord is not our goddess as he once was here in America and it goes on in verse 18 of some 33 behold the eyes of the Lord are upon those that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy to deliver their soul from death and to keep them from famine.

See the hedge of God's favor and the safety of God's protection in the favor of God's increase in prosperity doesn't really seem to be with our nation like it once was for so many years and there's a lot I could say the, the legalization of gay marriage now. Recently, the Supreme Court decision about gender identification being constitutionally protected and you can be transgendered cross-dressing. You can be a genetic mail but identifies something else in more and more in the workplace and friend. This is going to be the end of the church in America apart from a great revival that you going to have to be forced in your Christian daycare. Your Christian school.

Your church to be forced to hire clergy and workers that are openly gay, transgender, repudiate and reject what the word of God clearly says and and more and more the government is is making it illegal to be a biblical Christian you don't think so. Did you see this week in California where you can't sing and worship now in California get sink and don't think we we said this was coming.

Don't think the government is not going to try and get in and tell you how you can and can't run your church. I remember four years ago Hillary Clinton during her campaign would continually use the phrase freedom of worship. Now the founders bled and died for freedom of religious expression and freedom of conscience. Not only can you think and believe what you want to believe you can follow your own religious convictions, but the founders envisioned in America with free speech and free religious expression. But now freedom of worship.

Which of the work left uses is a phrase that basically means you can believe what you want to believe but you can't publicly express it and it's one thing when they want to publicly restrict your speech, but now they're saying and they're using the pandemic, which some call the plan Dimmick as a ruse to restrict what can be done in an out of church within church. You can't sing now in California friend. We are going further and further down into a tailspin that we got a God size problem, and only the Lord can turn this thing around, but I want to say this friend when people ask me why has the hand of God's favor been removed and the hedge of God's protection seemingly restricted.

There's a lot I could say but listen you kill babies for 45 years. You kill tens of millions of babies roughly 3000 babies a day murdered God will get you. There's a lot I could say but friend we deviated from the moral conscience that is written on every heart that we know is wrong. We we've tried it be pluralistic and said that all beliefs are equally valid as long as there sincerely held no nub some 3311.

The Council of the Lord stands for ever the thoughts of his heart to all generations to use the think God's word doesn't have an expiration date. The Bible will never go out of date. Jesus was the one and only Savior today friend Jesus is the one and only Savior, heaven and earth will pass away God's word will never pass away, and I've got private memo from the Democratic Party that is their plan for your future.

So stating the truth for new generation which will be back after this brief break. Christians don't necessarily agree with one another when it comes to questions of religious pluralism, homosexuality, the role of government abortion and war. Too often, we manage these disagreements by ignoring them, yet were called to engage the world for the sake of Christ. How can we be effective if we avoid society's most pressing questions 10 issues that divide Christians Alex McFarlane challenges us to drill down to the biblical core of 10 current issues such as social justice evil and suffering, photography, and environmentalism as he echoes the biblical invitation, this reason together only by engaging the Scriptures deeply thinking clearly and speaking truthfully can we, in God's family address our differences and discover the peace that comes with unity of purpose. 10 issues that divide Christians buying this book and many not afraid to ask hard questions that we care about a lot of things. We are engage online group of millennial's, brought together by a common goal to share truth apply Scripture and to get involved in are lost and hurting engage host discussions that help you apply a biblical worldview to your daily life engage at liberty University in more than a degree in the satisfaction of seeing what you can accomplish and what God can accomplish more than 600 options from associate 100% online more of discover God's truth through every degree at liberty University where we train champions for Christ, go to liberty/exploit: that's\explored: for apologetics, resources, books by Alex McFarlane and to find out where Alex is speaking to visit Alex welcome back for new generation radio Alex Farley here you have the little word from Psalm 33 I love verse six it says by the word of the Lord with the heavens made and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth God created. Remember he spoke and commanded the world to be and it was God spoke the world into existence X to Hilo from out of nothing. The Latin phrase there. And God created the world. He gathers the waters of the sea together is that he belies up the depths in storehouses never state of some 33.

Let all the earth fear the Lord and all the inhabitants of the world standing all of him, for he spake and it was done he commanded and steadfast. Now verse 10 is a verse that I take a lot of comfort in these days and I would encourage you to please pray for America and look lest anybody say what I mean I get sometimes in correspondence from people will say we talk about the elections we talk about making sure that the people that are in the various offices across the land, you know, believe in God believe in moral truth and have the right, the right world view. People will email me and thus I will Alex know you're Christian you get so passionately engaged about America and I thought your home is in heaven look it is, but as we shared many times. Augustine who lived 350 4430. Augustine wrote the very famous book city of God and look if you're Christian your home is in heaven. The city of God, but until you are in the city of God, you have an obligation to the city of man says part of the Christian life that we are to be salt and light and we know Christ is coming back. We know time as we know it will one day come to an end, but we have an obligation to the city of man to be salt and light now. Hopefully with the next election, and if enough believers are willing to get out there and vote will see verse 10 of Psalm 33 come to past the Lord brings the Council of the heathen to not he makes the devices of the people to none effect. I want to talk a little bit about the Council of the heathen, and the devices of the people I'm holding my hand some of what you're not going to hear in the Joe Biden ads and second about you know defeat trump and make this country a better place, at least according to the liberals. But you know what here is what the liberal progressive Democrats want to do over the next four years and this is in order and you're not going to hear this and that the news, but this is what their counsel, their plan for your life is number one. Add 2 to 4 justices to the Supreme Court, which they can do with the president, vice president and 50 Democrat Senators and the number one thing part of the reason that the liberal so vehemently want trump to fail because of that aplomb prize the appointment of Supreme Court justices number to not listen very carefully gives citizenship, including voting rights to 10 to 15 million illegals. They want to give citizenship to 10 to 15 million current illegals that includes voting rights number three relax border security and add 1 to 2 million illegals to the voting rolls each year. This is why listen if trump loses you and I will never live long enough to see another Republican conservative constitutionalist president.

That's why listen that they want the rule of law to continue to diminish an anarchy and lawlessness to continue to be in the streets. Very sad because it grows their power base our change voting laws to allow unregistered voters to vote on election days and make it illegal to have the requirement to show photo ID for voting and then they also want to abolish the electoral college because it is the electoral college that really brilliantly our founders made it so that places with disproportionately high numbers of voters would not be able to override the voice of parts of the country where there are lower numbers of voters.

The popular vote in the electoral College vote are.

It's a brilliant system is a brilliantly designed system to yield a fair and honest results. And that's why one of the things that I would urge you almost beg you to pray about friends look if you care about this country. If you care about the future of America. Pray that God in his providential power will rule and overrule so that we will have a fair result for for the election coming up now. One of the things that it is a law that the the leaders in our states are to cast the electoral votes that that they are supposed to based on the the tally and and you know there's been pushback and in the last election. There were states that did not want to cast the electoral votes to lawfully legally by our by our protocols make the president the president but that the Democrats have long wanted to abolish the electoral college.

Why because it mitigates against their plan to try to make this country more more socialist.

One of the things that they want to do is reduce the voting age to 16 or 17 years old and this is already being done in some local elections in Maryland and California now brace yourself and look, I've got this. I'm staring at the ink on paper and this is true, although you're not going to hear it in the media, but they want to make it illegal for felons and prisoners to vote.

That's interesting.

It's interesting folks, if you're a convicted felon serving time to things you can't own a firearm, and you can't vote but lawful law-abiding citizens. The liberals want to take away the right of gun ownership in self-defense and so it's it's this incredible irony. It's really slow toxic American suicide. They want to make sure that law-abiding citizens don't have the right to un-firearms, but convicted felons do have the right to vote and so friend. We are in a spiritual battle now when we come back after this brief break, talk about why the rise of socialism and I give you an amazing statistic about what university professors are teaching students these days, but stated there is some good news in this otherwise for the moment, bleak and likely bleaker picture entry for new generation comes back, talk about how the plans of God override the schemes of man the Lord is a 100% track record in keeping his promises and he lovingly offers to help everyone prepare for life and for eternity.

Just this year that had indicated they trusted Christ.

They prayed to receive Christ.

We've sent the material we are sending out materials all the time and obviously job one is to evangelize the lost and to see people safe but America is in a spiritual battle because of the fact that this country was founded on biblical principles this country, at least up until recently has been that paragon of gospel truth Christian influence, and moral truth, and it does hang in the balance. There are a lot of people that want America to fail until fall, and you may ask the question is, many asked me. So why you know if the liberal progressives are so bent on expunging Christianity from America and in turning this into a secular utopia aura man in vision secular utopia. Why, what will look folks, Karl Marx rejected Christianity and for Marx, God became the government.

And that's how people are today the black lives matter movement is a Marxist movement.

What you're watching French the tearing down of statutes and as as cowardly city Council members across the country with sometimes because of one complaint and sometimes it because of no complaints there. Pulling down veterans memorials there pulling down statues to our founders from Columbus to Washington, even Lincoln, Ulysses Grant folks what you've been watching is a slow, incremental overthrow of the US government, but part of the reason that people are so bent on changing America and ushering in socialism is because, like Karl Marx.

They don't have God's a government becomes God.

They have no hope of heaven so only a panacea and utopia in this world is what they hope in now will derive who I love and I read and study his history of the world wrought in his summary volume. After writing the history of civilization. The summary volume status and the lessons of history that there is no historical example of morality apart from God and all these nations there's only the might of the state and without God we don't have morality.

Now listen to this. In the end of the 19th century. A lot of the elite liberals were concerned that more and more money and wealth was going into the hands of the blue-collar you know heretofore agricultural and blue-collar workers, and so they were concerned about taking control of the electorate and making sure that liberal progressives had the power and it's interesting those men in Frederick K EP PEL and he commissioned a Swedish left-leaning sociologist named Gunnar near doll NY RDA illnesses and Paul Johnson's history of the American people will your dog did a study on voting habits in America.

That's interesting. He was paid $300,000 which was an amazing amount of money in the early 20th century. He ended up writing a book call an American dilemma of 1000 page book with 250 pages of notes and 10 appendices finally came out in 1994 and in an American dilemma near doll, who was a follower of the German atheist Friedrich Nietzsche heat.

He said this he he said Democratic politics are stupid quote" and he ultimately said the American people are impervious to rational argument, especially when it comes to voting. Now here's my point near doll ultimately became a socialist. He was one of the cofounders of the the Swedish Socialist party and his book in American dilemma is basically a 1000 page book that trashes America trashes our moral God-based representative republic. Now why am I telling you this because you've got to understand over the last 30 years, when secular university professors are interviewed about the books that most influence their life near doll's book in American dilemma, which is a socialist trashing of America is one of the top three most influential books will you have professors that come into the classroom with this kind of a perspective for three and four decades. It's no wonder that eventually, incrementally, gradually, that the voting public starts to think socialistic way because they've set under socialist professors and so today a Harris poll from a year ago says that half of millennial's Jens E. And Americans younger than 30, said that they would prefer to live in a socialist country, a gallop poll from a few months ago, found that 43% of Americans believe socialism would be quote a good thing for the country and that's a doubling of the amount in the last 20 years. Some 33 says behold the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him. Verse 18 upon them that hope in his mercy to deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord. Now, some 3322 and this is our prayer and this is why friend you must pray you must vote. Let thy mercy of the Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in the not only do I pray that you will hope in God. I pray that boldly courageously with your voice and your vote in your life you will stand for God in truth, the new generation is here to inspire, inform and equip to help you do that.
