That's first Peter 48 that I welcome you to truth for a new generation political forces are fighting for more federal funding for abortion. And while many states like Texas or trying to enact pro-life laws and the Fox popularized a multitude of people right now. It's estimated that over 80% of Americans they want legal protection for the unborn. They want abortion to go away and yet forces and entities and elected officials ignoring the will of the people and the philosophy behind the U.S. Constitution. They fight for more what my friend the late Chuck Colson called the culture of death. And yet the word of God tells us to love one another defend the oppressed and the fatherless, and affirm life hi Alex McFarland you listing to treat for a new generation radio. We have a very very special show really talk about life and what each of us can do to stand for life in Jesus Christ the Lord of life, the giver of life, the Savior of life. Jesus tells us to stand up for life in with me to talk about this very important subject. I'm not gonna give you his name because we have to preserve his his anonymity, but lantern is a ministry that is defending lives, saving people out of human trafficking, and they do what the word of God says do they defend those that are enslaved.

Those that are being abused. Those that are being killed and slaughtered and oppressed lantern rescue is around the world and they are standing up for life. And so, let's just say we've got a real eye for lack of a better word Indiana Jones that's doing courageous work, but they're doing it on behalf the gospel so lantern rescue on welcome you to TNG radio.

Thank you for making time to be with us. Hey Alex, thanks so much for having us here and have me here and many wonderful friend and mentor in your knowledge of the word we've had discussions where lot walked away and went is a great perspective about different things that I don't even understand myself. So maybe don't know that but that that is true, and in that is is permeated through your ministry and your books and everything so excited to be on the show with what I love to see the truth of God really ignite the life of the ankle and really and I know this is the case in your heart and in soul as well. You come to Jesus and you get saved and you you say Lord come in my life, save my soul but then the spirit of God grows. Your understanding of not only scripture but reality. Now, your knowledge of the word of God ultimately led you to what you do you go around the world and you save lives you you and your colleagues and your team but that that's part of it on the light switch is on and we realize that part of our mission. Obviously, to share the gospel but part of our mission is to stand for life is is I wish I could download when people asked me to speaker. They asked me questions. I wish I could just download the images to them. No images of a been so powerful over history, you know, to change the course of war, and in the reaction of the American public.

I wish I could download into them.

The headless children. I've seen the dismembered bodies I've seen the them multiple men raping a nine-year-old child. The, the lining up of customers.

The undercover work, or a minimum situation where there are minors who are for sale and they are for sale in this, the other being displayed. As such, and in this one comes with drugs. This one comes with something else. It is a is a harsh world that we live in is in the world. Yes, and you often as Americans we don't quite understand that and wheat year where, sheltered from a great deal of that and even the ones who maybe think they are. They do know. I'm not sure they know just how evil the world is and those that are suffering greatly are the children we started this whole show off with the sanctity of life coming abortion is the highest form of human trafficking.

In my book. It is commercialized and it always ends in death. At this convention were where we are I was talking earlier about Planned Parenthood and ears of people need to understand in his rear smudge that racism noun racism is raw, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, she wanted to exterminate Negroes just like that of Hitler wanted to exterminate the Jewish people. Margaret Sanger, who is like the patron saint of the pro-abortion industry and it is a lucrative moneymaking machine she wanted to eliminate black people. Now what more racist sentiment could there possibly be in your you're right, this horrid, unspeakably evil thing called abortion and and a business model.

Look, it's no secret in this person. I had on the radio was timely that Planned Parenthood's target markets are inner city LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Texas. Note that it's no secret where they go and what they do is not sad that people would profit from the taking of human life and specifically certain ethnicities absolutely and it's always shocking because trafficking is such a buzzword now. I think that human trafficking categories of it, not levels of the different categories of others.

There's labor trafficking you were someone is a natural slave and obscene girls who work 14 hours a day in Brickyard's and muscle Brickyard and their sold all night into sex slavery rights and labor trafficking, sex slavery, then you've got to organ harvesting is a form of human trafficking you have forced brides. That's a form of human trafficking. You have child soldiers.

That's a form of human trafficking, and I would list another one as abortion and that's not met yet I recognize but it's it's what I like to also point out to people and uniting their stats and numbers of what it's worth, the year and it is true that a child a girl a boy, a minor person is a reusable commodity it comes to human trafficking. They can be sold and used over and over and over and often the use and all of those areas so that they can sometimes our victims are in labor, slavery, and then there in sex slavery and then on top of the sex slavery there being exploited through CCM material child sexual abuse material hold that thought. We've got to take a brief break. This is true for new generation radio talk a little lantern rescue lantern rescue.more about this tragic world wonderful opportunity to do what the word of God says do and stand for life of the apostle Peter wrote first Peter to remind us that Christians have true and lasting hope in their Savior Jesus Christ. Because Jesus conquered death in an incorruptible glorified body. We can be sure that our salvation is permanence. As we walk through everyday life, the Billy Graham training center at the Cove presents Jesus Christ hope that lives hope that lasts for every believer. A special three day seminar with Alex McFarland.

Alex will dig into first Peter to help you gain truths delivered by an assurance to keep going come to the Cove near Asheville, North Carolina July 8-10 for three days of in-depth Bible study fellowship and refreshing Jesus Christ hope that lives hope that lasts for every believer. A study of first Peter with Alex McFarland. Find out more and wanted to raise your hand during the sermon will use your chance hi Alex McFarland here from the nationally syndicated radio program exploring for more than 10 years, Michael Harper and I have taught scripture and answered hundreds of vital questions. We held a brand-new book of the top 100 Bible questions from listeners of all ages from questions about supposing Bible contradictions to apologetics facts that prove the truths of Scripture. This new book features practical content that will make my life for you.

Can we really be sure to exist there contradictions in the Bible that will help me understand the Bible better. There's so much good content in this book Bible questions and answers published by Broad Street publishers available at your local bookstores and also through for apologetics, resources, books by Alex McFarland and to find out where Alex is speaking to visit Alex generation by the way biblical worldview. One point of biblical worldview. This standing for life, love, got lantern rescue with me and I want to continue in and give ample time before the break we were talking and you used term that I wasn't here with was it see Sam is that an acronym, yes, even SAM right so over the years in the past. The terminology often hours turnaround in the court and outside of the court is child pornography but that that is is a connotation that the child is participating in it willingly right so are our core system has changed that terminology in some of the words are used after now and are defined for penal code is see Sam child sexual abuse material. We also have Internet crimes against children. I CAC and then we have even C6 child sexual exploitation, material or content you know and we talk to human trafficking you have that element of commercial element you have a commander forsaken be fraudulent. It can be court coercion. Those are some of the things that we would fall in where defining this, but when we talk about CCM. It's almost something that people think isn't as bad but they don't understand, those are real children in those images. But the real victimization upon that child. So Alex I would just tell you the skin on your body would crawl if you knew the volume of see Sam is being traded in this hotel right now, and in this world all around here in the Bible Belt, where it where it may be the largest hotel in America 3000 rooms Christian you know what listeners were a Christian convention.

You and I several thousand people checking into my hotel and this is a Christian convention.

There were people and they had the badge. I mean, and they were talking about how drunk they were going to get the tell me we don't need a revival. This is none of our said that none of our staff.

By the way, this was a different ministry totally unrelated. They are not on this radio network at all. I assure you, but as I was checking in at the front desk.

I was listening to these two men talk about and I am not to use the word they use to describe their state of inebriation right here at the convention away from home down here in Nashville as a Christian convention. If I think 5000 talk about how blind drunk they were going to get while they were here.

Do we need a revival of Anita Holy Ghost conviction colonize people. We do because it is, you know, the US law enforcement is a tremendous job in fighting human trafficking in the missing children exploited children to do an incredible job, but there they are very much overwhelmed, understaffed and under resourced to handle see Sam material in the trading out and is being produced a lot of largely offshore, although it is produced here in the states child sexual abuse material. See Sam and and and it is in the trading factor per minute and hour shock you and you know are are agencies that are focusing on that, I may not have seen the incredible work they do. But having their target. They have access to understand every every tray like they know every trader that materials can again identified by algorithm software and things and cell phone companies, but they can't even begin to tackle it all. She is just incredible incredible and and until it's view this material and get some perverse satisfaction out of this note I will be just parenthetically insert this when I speak universities I've had during Q&A people say, well, Christians are against sex, one sex is a beautiful gift God gave in the context in which is to be experienced is called marriage.

You know it. It's funny, I did Masters in developmental psych at liberty a double Masters half of it was developmental site and research of the last 30 years plus shows that the people that enjoy the greatest amount of intimacy the greatest sexual fulfillment are called married people heterosexual monogamy, a man and woman for a lifetime. But look, people go out into these deviant ungodly wet places only think of things like pornography and prostitution, but lantern rescue. You're telling us people when you don't do life God's way and you fall for Satan's lures of these dark unspeakable child abuse these horrid terrible things. This is something that God gave the human race.

But Satan perverted isn't her percent and was occurring now and why wanted to bring up see Sam on this particular show with truth for new generation is because we are sexualizing the younger people, now you know in the end and were giving them cell phones with absolutely no filters parameters to the end and time if the parents of America near when now, so driving directions will come to protect my children the for all. I told him as I control the phone you giving your nine-year-old phone with full access to groomers perpetrators people who are just all they do all day is is is look for children to groom and to manipulate and to expose them. You know to pornography was sin, begins at sexual desire or interest in them.

And before you know you got up on what we have today. Now we got 13-year-old girls who are perpetrating no boys because they think the boy wants the picture in a standard generally have a five-minute conversation goes like you want a picture of because she's been so sexless from a young age and everything.

She looked on Instagram and social media. She thinks that's how this plays out. And this boy might be completely like never seen an image in Dana's life and is like no I didn't but probably does now and then and an expectation is that that is what occurs in communication online and then that's that makes them very susceptible to the groomers and the people who work in the human trafficking arena. Who are you not 23-year-old who is posing as a 16-year-old talking to a 14-year-old right that you know in this so that is all set up for for them and so will that take a brief break will come back and we'll talk about shine the light in a in a place of darkness is stated within a continue on truth for new generation this very special episode dealing with God's response to cheapening and trafficking of human life don't go back.

I'm on a couple of American secular university campuses on I'm coming soon to a city near you said please check out Alex and all of our events are camp all over doing to equip people to stand for biblical truth is on Alex but were talking about would lantern rescue and again for those it may just be tuning in to tell us what lantern rescue does your website and how people can be involved. Sure, you learn a lot about files on Instagram and children that some of the children that we rescue and those that we arrest and we all have firmer skill sets to put us in the play. To do this in a unique way work at the highest levels of foreign governments to establish an agreement so that we could come and help them counter human trafficking and establish a sustainable program that we established with them with their high their law enforcement there slot you know and then we may employ undercover investigators and interceptors like that to work with the Atty. Gen.'s office in the country so we are goal is to create sustainability that when Americans aren't there. There still working you know in the world. We have that going great. Alex part of the world, just like any mission, I would tell you know it still is still work in progress.

You know, so the God is given us tremendous favor internationally with foreign governments and in agencies and work were taken advantage of it in a work word going hard at it and I want you if you're hearing this program. I'm asking you to do this and I you know I very rarely issue like a call to action other than stand strong for Jesus, but I'm asking everybody who hears this, go to lantern lantern Ellie and TER in.

I'm asking you please do this for me. If you if you follow our ministry and you care about what we do and and and millions of you lantern several years ago on the news there was a story of a woman, she bought a purse, a high-end handbag and she'd ended a while and she saw slip of paper and and you mentioned it work trafficking people enslaved in labor work till they drop this lady buys a nice fancy purse and she finds the slip of paper and it says help me. We are in a camp we get no you will get like an hour sleep every 24 hours.

Please help and it was realigning and there was this documentary and they found out a sweatshop and I mean it with people enslaved and if they didn't work, they would be beaten, and it was just us living hell that that stuff goes on. Now we here in America were very blessed. We where the fancy shoes we get the designer clothes we enjoy things that are made in China and Asia, but often the fancy accoutrements of our life came at the expense of somebody else's didn't very much, and a lot of people know that surprise you brought that up, that's such a truth, I think okay and we talk about it some. Most people just dismiss it, but you've really nailed it on the head been in those camps and those labor facilities and factories were atrocities beyond his labor slavery are happy there selling them their dragging bill selling organ and other than anything out of those those facilities in your right is to produce stuff for America. You know that's the consumer I'm going to sum up, history and conflicts wagon lantern that will okay here's the deal.

Satan couldn't kill God. So he's tried to harm the ones made in God's image that that's that's the basis of all of this is it not in the wars and the conflicts that we have happening right now in the failure of infrastructures of countries we are seeing children suffer in a way that it's it's overwhelming. If you and you've been on the front lines around the world and you sing that the exploitation and the killing of human life. What what are one or two things that you would ask the American church to pray about what what should I be our prayer at this moment right now we have so much happening in Ukraine right now and you know don't get number one, don't kid down the conspiracy theories and forget their real human life suffering. So it's okay to be open-minded and pretty to consider what's happening politically but don't make that don't make is that you get dismiss what's really happening to the individual person right some people zealous.

This is a conspiracy is happening so I don't have to be involved. Right. We have to help the children in Ukraine.

We have to help the women in the orphans matter what we think politically is going on their people were suffering right. We can't look at Haiti and say well you know the practice voodoo and it and and is just their problem. Sorry. You know, or have all these theories about why the government collapses all the time and all the assassinations happen. Look desert does a great discussion on the table but you have to turn you have to do something to help those who are suffering in those environments, it doesn't excuse not having non-activity right right so one day you note, don't make excuses to something you know you pray about it and look how you can help those that are suffering the most in the number two is a church.

I think churches have to start attacking missions in a different way.

I just don't know if the missionary or to 1950s got make it 2020) I mean it. You know what I'm saying. I mean everywhere is a conflict now everywhere is in a Civil War everywhere but also kill everybody and I think this is intensified as were getting closer and closer.

Right of return of Christ. Note, sadly, were out of time, but I started with first Peter 48 says love one another love covers a multitude of sins and the Bible tells us that those who deliver his soul from death will be blessed of God. First Peter 411 said God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus. To him be glory and the power forever never folks I don't want you to be depressed and just hopeless.

Jesus is victorious and when you're on the side of life and truth. You're on the side of Jesus Christ.

So stand strong. We're here to help you do that I want to thank you for listing to truth for new generation.
