PNG radio for today's culture and timeless truths come together it's reasoned relevant content apologetics worldview and answers to the questions that you 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 speaker, writer, and advocate for Christian apologetics Dr. Alex McFarlane what is worldview and why does this matter today on truth for a new generation were going to talk about worldview and why worldview is so significant and how our culture and our world. As you may perceive is really in a battle of worldviews hi Alex McFarlane tears a grudge with us, folks, this is potentially one of the most significant radio shows, you will listen to all year.

In a moment. You can eat a guest, an author and a book that I want you to get out a book that I really think will be beneficial to everybody that reads it. But first, let me share a story literally 15 minutes ago I walked out of a college class I was teaching worldview at a Christian university and in front of about 600 students and a married couple came up very distraught. Their adult students in this particular class and they talked about how they were originally from Sweden and their daughter wanted to transition from female to male. Their daughter has gender confusion and wants to as a transgender transition in Sweden because the girl was under the age of 18. The doctor said we can't do this.

We won't do this I would not been operated on you or give you hormone therapy because you're underage and your minor and so we want do this that's in Sweden but she comes to the USA because they were originally American citizens and its 17 finds an American doctor and the mother emotionally saw me this story said mutilated her body mutilated and is giving her unities just incredibly high doses of testosterone to try to help this young female become a male now. My point ensuring that is in the United States of America. Though we were founded on Christianity and we were founded on a Judeo-Christian moral code that we have so rapidly shockingly abandoned belief in moral truth was actually abandoned belief in biological truth. We at least in academic circles don't believe that a male is different than a female and folks our battle of worldviews and our loss of a Christian worldview, a biblically informed worldview. I would submit to you as as sad as the story is Christian parents, grieving over a 17-year-old daughter who for one thing, needs Christ needs counseling but now for the rest of her life has a physical body that as the mother said, and I know having interviewed people mutilated damaged by botched gender reassignment surgery. Do you understand our loss of a Christian worldview is bringing pain and destruction into the lives of people in the Lord Jesus tells us to love our neighbor and I want to encourage everyone who hears this broadcast to obviously pray for the country share Christ with those around you but commit yourself please commit yourself to the responsibility of understanding world view. Understanding the spiritual cultural battles in which we find ourselves and then rise to the challenge and learn to defend the truth in an age where millions are lost in darkness will. To that end, I want you to meet a very special friend. He is an attorney. He is a radio and television commentator and adjunct professor at the University, but he is the author of a very important book that I want you to be aware of. His name is Ivy Scarborough. He it has become just a very close friend and a very close colleague and I the I want to thank you for making time to be with us on the program today and we can talk about your book into the night, the twilight of Western civilization first and foremost, thank you for being on the show but also thank you for making this incredible contribution to Christian scholarship. While it's like to thank you for the opportunity to talk about about vertebrae and bully ran so solid and not know we both share the same Christian worldview dynamics and Lala the positive ones from God not permitted, including my ability to write this book you listening to trees for new generation Alex McFarlane Scheer were talking with author attorney Ivy Scarborough, an expert on worldview. In his book into the night here is that the subject of the crisis of Western civilization. Ivy Scarborough, what is the premise of the book it in a nutshell, and will unpack this into the night. What is this book say that knowledge by saying that the white filled God leading to write this book and the objective of it was to third very precisely scholarly and inadequate way. The study Western civilization while we are in the condition were how we got here and words more than glad to make it clear to the audience all the dynamics of the plague individuals and outmoded premise of the notion that I would not only have a biblical foundation probably said, but very, very honest, starkly realistic historical foundation. So everything in the book. The first boring the reader to point out extreme realism about the state of affairs in Western civilization, particularly here in the United States and Britain to say to the listeners what's happened and this is why the attack on the court.

The book line to describe how it is a console involving developers like and finally because authority is a strategic plan.

I don't believe in ghosts describing a problem, no matter how analytically sound or an cycle of my great cause I bill God had a purpose in their bed protocol direction.

In other words, everything I teach the reader through the first two segments of the book of leading up to the third segment, which is what are sometimes referred to as the strategic plan. Usually, the situation realistically than what we don't know about what we can do is take a very brief break and come back and drill down more deeply were talking with attorney and author Ivy Scarborough about his incredible book into the night and were talking about. Frankly, folks that the saving of the country saving of the culture. But even more importantly, the saving of souls stating truth for a new generation radio is back after this. America today is like a patient struggling to live yet is being forcibly euthanized by her quote.

Drs., the life force within the patient fighting for survival is the honest citizens like yourself team of quote caregivers are the local and national leaders actually contributing to the demise of the patient economy is crashing crime is exploding. The Constitution is being abolished the assault on America how to defend our nation before it's too late.

You know that we talk about ideas and trends we talk about world view worldview is a set of beliefs. What you believe about God creation life morality.

The family right and wrong. Ethics worldview shapes.

Really, everything about our life and where were embroiled in a lot of struggle over worldviews right now, United States of America. We are really in the process of determining will we continue to be a moral representative republic. A stable nation will we dissent further and further into anarchy and move toward socialism. Well, as is always the case in times of of danger and crisis God raises up leaders God raises up prophetical voices, one of which belongs to Ivy Scarborough's book into the night.

Honestly, like few books I've ever owned or read accurately lays out how did we get where we are Ivy, I want to continue the conversation. The book into the night. You really do layout and impeccably accurate historical timeline and you quite a lot of names, many of which we've heard you you quote people like Arnold Toynbee and Francis Schaeffer and along the journey of reading your book. I've met some new names but let me ask you this. How did you get into worldview. How did this become something your you're so knowledgeable about all boyhood.

I was always interested in international waters and when I want to also focus on international law shall not be required so the state is not centered always been on the wall of the whole models of narrow aspect and so anything that the lights of literature is not in my objective was to integrate my experience or training as a plow lawyer with my experience and training in the scholarly realm and the book was written, man as one person: the bulletproof what really appreciated that firm and he was saying was.

The book is written in such a way with such authority and outside the supported report that I might that it would be almost impossible for somebody to refute basic statements that appear throughout the book, Rita Clute and then I'd like you to comment on it and I'm sure you'll remember this but on in the book, you quite Arnold Toynbee, historian, and it just really an acclaimed historian. He died in 1975 but Arnold Toynbee very famously. He said democracy is a leaf lifted from the book of Christianity, but in modern times. Now, since he said this in the 70s. Democracy has been really divorced from its meaning and from the Christian context. It was formed in and secularized but now here's the quote and IV I want your response. Toynbee said quote we have obviously for a number of generations past, been living on spiritual capital clinging to Christian practice without possessing Christian beliefs said Toynbee and this is a wasting asset. In other words, is like your savings accounts can run out and Toynbee said we have suddenly discovered that this Christian residue is running out. He said to our dismay in this generation and of quote not unpack that a little bit living on spiritual capital that is running out Ivy.

What would you think Toynbee meant by that, evergreen, good civilization autotune including stop them from Christianity Christian belief system and that belief system has been so powerful and so real, so much in contact with reality untrue. Letting that influence everything in our culture. The most important thing though the morale of the people more human beings treat one another how they perceive themselves in relationship to the supported bidding, how they perceive themselves in relationship to one another, and knowledge of the Lord one another and that has made for such wonderful positive developments throughout Western civilization in England, for example, in the development of emotional and common-law principles of justice. There is nothing else like that in world history. Lots of wall but nothing on the scale along with adaptive perceptiveness of the English structure of law and always principles cream from Christianity. They devolve from the teachings of Jesus Christ and what the model what Toynbee saying you that we have a lot on this for long time that we have not nurtured. We haven't developed and coordinated and fired this great trio supporting knowledge and reality untrue, but are so blessed. A9 and got a large parcel that already there and we have been able to continue to live WHAT HE CALLED THE RESIDUE. THIS IS NOT ALLOWING US TO THE END THAT IS INVOLVED ONLY CHRISTIANS IN THE CHURCH. YOUR YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

AND YOU KNOW WITHIN THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS OF THE BIBLE WE GET SOME FOUNDATIONAL TRUTHS THAT HAVE BEEN THE BEDROCK ON WHICH SOCIETY STOOD AT GOD IS THE CREATOR OF LIFE. GOD IS THE CREATOR OF GENDER. GOD IS THE CREATOR OF MARRIAGE.

GOD IS THE CREATOR OF FAMILY, TO 1 OR ANOTHER, AND AT TIMES VERY INTENSELY.

EACH OF THESE IS UNDER ATTACK IS IN IT.

IVY GOD THE CREATOR LIFE, SEXUALITY, GENDER, MARRIAGE, FAMILY, THE RIGHTS OF PARENTS TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN IN ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE IN THE CROSSHAIRS RIGHT NOW. I THINK EVERYTHING EVERYTHING THAT WE BELIEVE IN OLDER MODEL CHRISTIAN IS UNDER ATTACK HAS BEEN UNDER MONUMENTAL AND I WILL EVEN START SOMEONE ELSE IN THE WAY OF REINFORCING WHAT WONDERS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY PROF. ALAN WOLF, WHO WROTE A BOOK CALLED THE NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH. NOW THE ORIGIN OF THE SALES THAT OUR WALK WITH THE DIAGNOSTIC BLOOD. THE CENTRAL THEME OF THE BOOK IS THAT THE SAME DECLINE IS TAKING PLACE MUCH LUCK GOING TO TALK ABOUT. AND BECAUSE IT BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT A BELIEVER UNDERSTANDS WHAT A POWERFUL POSITIVE INFLUENCE. THE CHRISTIAN FAITH AND ALL HUMANITY AND HE TALKS IN THERE ALMOST POIGNANTLY ABOUT HOW HE PAGED THE CVS LITTERING AND DYING OF THE CHURCH, STARTING FROM HIS PRINCIPLES BECAUSE IT ADVERSELY AFFECTING THE SOCIETY LAWS AND THE PEOPLE OF GOD AND THE CHURCH DOES SUCH IMMEASURABLE GOOD IN THE SOCIETY THAT WE LOSE IT, THAT ARE IN PERIL FOLKS.

The crisis of Western civilization. He's graciously with us today. For a few moments and doubt he's got you Ivy, I gotta tell you that you know when I hear you talk in your knowledge of history and your knowledge of America and just the mind. God is giving you and you use it for Christ. I'm thinking wow I am really glad he's on our team.

Really glad that God -related rate of eight dollars. I would more than anyplace else always wanted to be a covered pinnacle of what was important one, early on in college. I would like to grab God would have made a political career, but I have not called for that and was mature enough of the Christian liberty like that of the surgeon and the thing that I have filed as time gone alone. God has answered my prayer. But another different way and another one I wanted to be at the pentacle of what was most important glorious things of the greatest pleasures in history that anything would be a Spartan and God has allowed me to protest regarding a wide lot at that pentacle, but when you're dealing with things that are truly significant in a culture that things that I would hear all the strangers development and yet the shallow end or superficial, and I have absolutely no lasting meaning.

Amen. IVI I get correspondence from a lot of believers in a very despondent and a look, I get it, you know, with the election say the culture you know everything from you. No free college tuition free healthcare defined the police. There is a lot about which we are deeply concerned I get it, but what a glorious moment to be a Christian. What a glorious opportunity right now to be a page man and an IVI that we love. We love the heroes of all from the apostle Paul to Finian Moody and Edward send you know all the great Augustine, Aquinas, CS Lewis and Billy Graham but I believe folks if you're discouraged thing about this back in the shadows. The saints that have gone on. I'll bet the apostle Paul would say, oh, please. I wish I could minister for six months and 2021. Let me Adam will let me back in the game folks inthis moment because his first Corinthians 1558 your labor in the Lord is not in vain, and so folks, the witness that you project the seed of truth you so the neighbor that you prayerfully gently influence it really, really matters, and so Ivy would you agree this is a thrilling time to serve Christ and to be alive and to minister is in article glad you like a court order absolutely correct, and in fact one of the points that I have knighted to critical: after Saddam management would remain on America is that you never tell anyone here lies almost 3 review that Blake, that's terrible beyond redemption, but there's nothing that can be God and order anything that sounds macho sense of helplessness and hopelessness thought of frustration that they don't know that there could be anything done is not going to be a part of what were central because just the opposite is true.

And that's a whole lot about shredded parts were available. What I'm trying to get a culture crushing to yes you can do this, you can alter this course.

Portugal have to be willing to diligently and do some serious soul-searching that humbled yourself and come to grips with the fact that we as Christians in the church in America have failed our culture you have failed. Nothing is behind military and decline of American culture more than the failure of the church, only Christians and I'm including myself, and that of the young man I was very much a part of something that we shall and what I want to say developers and will not only can we address this, but you put your hand in the hand of God admitting you put the other panel disorder one 2 blood seems to be presenting to you and use it better. We can explain later as to what we can do more specifics of the plan but yes all means, not only is this not a bad time in one sense, to be a Christian you are Christian, who also lives to the calls of the occasion admitted there is no better time than now could be there. Got to have that willingness you have got the love caused so much and you got to love your fellow alum I am so much that you will make whatever sacrifices this calls for you. Love that much. You will do it if you don't love yourself more, you will continue to back all and studying your little Angela world complaining, whining about the situation, talking about how bad it is but you will be part of the problem, not part of the solution and you know what, as we read our Bible and we try to learn Scripture and as we read great books like yours to get prepared with beautiful things about this friends as you prepare to impact the world. It is you yourself that is changed I want to direct you to the website a FA store.net. The book by Ivy Scarborough, the person with whom we've been talking is called into the night.
