When we cancel culture deletes races and cancels God is not going too far and they envision a very different country of godless America. Most of us would not approve of having hijacked every major institution. The left doesn't simply want unity. They demand submission and will cancel those who oppose them as we've seen welcome to understand at times radio with Jim Markel radio for the remnant brought to you by Olive tree ministries agent spends the hour with author and broadcaster David fear also has a cancel culture won't rest until it erases you and God.

David host a popular podcast stand up for the truth. We carry his newest book. Here is today's program targeted parable 24 seven on the Internet by their constituents to this big lie in the question is how are we going to really honestly program these people. Let's find out. The cult of Trump's cold rep to be deprogrammed. You have any idea how we probably start that process but I don't know I'm a journalist. I certainly don't know how we can stop you know, we can look to get straight out. We have to start seriously addressing the question of how to deprogram nearly 75 million trumpets. This is not a trivial matter. This is not easy to do. I've said before, Trump will go.

But the trumpets will still be here. The Trump is him and welcome to the program.

I hope you appreciated that little clip of Katie Couric and company because they are very very obsessed with deep programming. Anyone who might be a Christian might be a conservative.

My evenly just a patriot. Did you know that is not allowed any longer. Now when I go for an hour today I'm going to ask you to bear with my voice.

It was either go ahead and do our programming or do a replay today so you're going to have to put up with whatever's been running through my office and will make the best of it. We are carrying a new book by David fear Rosso titled canceling Christianity how the left silences churches, dismantles the Constitution and divides our culture. Let me read a paragraph from this book, which is in my store. By the way, the author says this since we dropped the ball and practically backed out of the public square. Over a half-century ago. Here are some tragic repercussions. Truth has been redefined. God is mocked prayer and the Bible expelled from public school.

God's laws from the public square. Sin is celebrated pleasure exalted abortion legalized. We've seen the increase of adultery, divorce, homosexuality, promiscuity, Hollywood poisoning the minds of children.

Public schools pushing a progressive godless agenda, a lack of integrity in government. A generation now endorsing socialism record high suicide rates among young people, radical feminism, witchcraft, legalized same-sex marriage government corruption, political gridlock, gender confusion, sexual anarchy, racial division, social justice, apostasy and riots in our cities paid for by power elites, globalists, and those who hate America. The author goes on to say, when we hold a true biblical worldview.

We see one side that generally rejects God, family, morality, self-restraint, and truth but sees government as God again were carrying this book and I'll say more as we go through the program so I welcome back. The author David fear Rosso David, welcome back. Thank you for having me again Janet pleasure okay day that I just read a line up there of extremely horrific things that have come along and not just our country with the Western world, certainly in the last 50 years and accelerating here in the last 20 years and I think you will agree with me that part of the problem is that our pulpits are somewhat silent. They're not addressing some of the major issues I just reread some of those major issues that came out of page 10 of your book and then some of the pulpits are teaching gospel light and way too many are emphasizing as you bring out the social gospel, and particularly since 2020 year ago. It seems to be all the faults of people with light skin talk to me about this part of all that was a conventional yeah I know it seemed longer there so much food transpired in our nation, and it goes back quite a few decades if not 75 to 100 years what happening when the church back out of culture and I'm generalizing because of a good quarter of the church, maybe 1/3 of the church that have been trying to fight these battles, but there's a lot of people that are not engaging in the battle and the Johnson amendment 1954 that had something to do with the pastors being fearful of what their 501(c)(3) worrying about what to say they couldn't talk about politics and you put that word in quotes because a modern understanding of that when you talk about Christianity what we can say is social or moral issues right.

But politics covers all these things in the making abortion political are making same-sex marriages political their making, gender, political matter, making race, political just really briefly go to. I think it in Ezekiel chapter 8 just simply because the soul then shall die. So we talk about this idea of race in a whole white race. The problem can be systemic. We have to understand God looks at us as individuals. There's no such thing in his book as collective or universal salvation and our country were, going well. It's all because of the white race now were being duped by the propaganda.

One of the big problems is when the church gets away from doctrine and the Old Testament teaches us what Jesus teaches the individual person is responsible for his or her own sins but Jesus paid for our sin.

They have to have a fall man's act of someone they can blame and point to what's astounding to me of some of the churches are believing it right now they're starting to go along with critical race theory or some of these other things there completely on biblical when we ascribe certain sin to people based on skin color were already down the wrong path Christianity in critical race theory.

For example, cannot code was very young.

I may ask you in a minute or two here to give me a good definition of the critical race theory, but you suggest here, David, and I'm not quite leaving. Here is the pathway of how we have dropped the ball. We being believers have dropped the ball because quite frankly, the left is trying vociferously to cancel God cancel Christianity cancel our churches, and by the way, they would have a little bit of success in 2020, and part of 2021 but look in defense of my listeners and yours.

They're praying they were sharing their faith when it comes to bureaucrats in the deep state politicians. There's only so much we can do as there is so much corruption that our listeners feel helpless now. One thing they're not doing is voting so we can talk about that but I don't want to dwell on that. All I'm saying is, our listeners are doing a lot of things right.

There are some things that seem to be out of their control. First about your listeners and I would consider you and I part of the remnant. There's not enough of a buy for different estimates between 24 and 54 million professing Christians who do not vote on election day. Can you imagine Jan if just two or 3 million more Christian would vote in elections. They wouldn't be close with all the fraud in the cheating that we know goes on in every election.

I do want to say something Robert talk to some people might be skeptical about a book with a title canceling Christianity the thinking, wow, I thought your God with stronger that no not title canceling Godzilla to be clear, Jesus is Lord's word endures forever. He is a returning conquering King and he cannot be canceled, but what the book is about is the attacks on Christianity on the biblical worldview and on those who represent that people who know that we are Christians there to come against us. Jesus warned us. Paul warns us, but we understand this is a worldview war.

As you mentioned earlier, it is between those who trust in a God that is all-powerful sovereign in the inerrancy of Scripture, the biblical worldview and then those who trust in government and man in moral relativism. That's why they don't follow God what's happened is they've got to try to eradicate the reminders and you and I and those who are listening if you're living a Christian life. If you're speaking about it. We are the ones they have to silence or get rid of Lesher Scripture really quick here that gives an idea of the salt and light.

We are supposed to be in second Corinthians 2 verse 14 to thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession and spreads through the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing with that name. We leave a fragrance think we have to be out in culture we have to influence our culture for Christ and for godliness, but they don't like it. The left and those who do not believe have rejected God they have to suppress the truth in unrighteousness. And that's where were seeing so much of a Romans one mentality in our society rather than a biblical Christianity that most of us believe this country began in looking at and living by okay David that here's what I think the bottom line is when it splits a lesson. The minute clip as you hear your identifying I think the heart of the problem and it's this raging spirit of the age. Now what is that spirit of the age folks it's actually the literal spirit of the antichrist which is on the loose. What were seeing is totalitarian and completely un-American renewal leftist government was capable of communist policy but overseeing is a dangerous one party Democrat media big tech conglomerate that suppresses speech in there now canceling American citizens. In some cases the ruining people's lives and remember a sitting president was viciously attacked for four years by the liberal media and banned from major big tech platforms in the United States, the land of the free that we shouldn't be surprised by any of this but the speed in which so many events converging events. It's alarming. And of course it's very prophetic chaos, confusion, deception, and the antichrist spirit of the age is on the move.

Okay David you made one point there that leapt out at me and that is the speed with which all of this is happening. I started writing about this decades ago, the liberal media bias in the media they're not trying to hide it anymore. One of the chapters in the book is a one party media big tech conglomerate.

I want to share a quote from George Orwell. I think this sums up what were talking about you that whoever controls the image in the information of the past determines what and how future generations will think whoever controls the information and images of the present determines how those same people will view the past.

He who controls the past, and commands the future he who commands the future conquers the path what we have seen is a complete rewriting of our history were talking about literally public school textbooks being rewritten over the media is concerned. It's almost like the next Republican presidential candidate they most likely will never be treated fairly against him.

I agree, possibly anybody who's running for Senate or Congress.

It's sad, but we've got to accept it. This is part of the war. I believe it's demonic. Silencing the hate. The preachers of tolerance calling us intolerant for policies that align more with biblical values meaning Republican independent libertarian. Some of these policies which trump was behind in the left.

It just seems like their policy align with antichrist. He said in that little clip I played.

I think you said it all so sure listening to understanding the times radio and Jan Markel. Even though I don't sound like myself today. I asked for your patience this hour. I chose to go ahead and do programming in spite of the throat that's really bad so I'm doing my best. Since all I can say, and we are carrying David Serra so's newest book canceling Christianity how the left silences churches, dismantles the Constitution and divides our culture.

You can find this in my online store and all of trees olive tree get on my newsletter lists E and print.

You can call my office and will get a copy out to you very quickly. It's a fairly thick book. It is almost 300 pages and is filled with how we are being canceled and how they're trying to cancel the church and David just for a minute here images go down again. This alleyway of the church because leftism is the latest religion of woke is him and some people there churches closed in 2020 and when they came back in 2021. The church was suddenly woke wanted to explain what that means and why is leftism and woke is him the same thing and how did this happen to some very, very solid churches. Some folks are writing me and saying my church is doing this and every other message is on race relations and it seems to me suddenly there awoke and they know how to handle this.

I read about that in chapter 7 and that lives that matter to God and to talk about black lives matter. Part of that chapter at contract Christianity versus Marxism, one of the reasons I decided to write the book with these three crises. We had a divisive culture in our politics in the presidential election year. Right. That lasted actually three years before that. But then covert, 19 hit churches had a decision to make and then black lives matter. Riots all summer long and not only that the lawlessness which is prophetic but there was no rule of law seems like there was standdown orders governors and mayors were saying you cannot enforce the law.

They were burning buildings and I'm sure you talk with quite a bit. I am program. We have as well in Minneapolis where your at. It was hard to look at this and what country am I living in a yellow band to smell the smoke. All my goodness in this happening in many cities across the country. But here's the thing that makes your head spin Christians in churches were locking arms with black lives matter brave testers and you're going wait a minute. This is one of the most godless organizations and you gotta describe the right way to black lives matter global network. It's not just a spontaneous organization that is behind racial injustice they want to talk about black lives matter woke there behind so much more in a run by the left, funded by the left. A lot of their donations directly through their website went to act blue charities which ended up going to the Democrat party. I get into that in this chapter. But the thing that Jan I'd preach a sermon on this last summer.

It was one of most controversial sermons are probably one of the most watched that I shared at church that spurred this chapter because well-meaning Christians. And here's where we can go down this road of this biblical illiteracy. We are emotion driven and not truth driven.

At times, and of course black lives matter, but what we were doing a thing.

Yeah, we can justify all this lawlessness, because the idea of supporting black people who have concerns about racism. That's a good cause.

Your justifying lawlessness to do it. I had to go into what the background of this is we know that there cofounders are trained Marxist. We know that the roots of this critical race theory.

These contrasting worldviews of Christianity and Marxism. And since I mention CRT give me a little bit of the definition of critical race theory and why it's even important that my listeners understand that this has invaded the church. Well first of all, it's been in public school curriculum. Not every school, but it's been in the universities and a lot of things start from the University of Alexi. What taught in the godless secular university does not stay in the godless secular universities. Critical race theory is a modern approach to social change.

If Marxist driven demonic is developed from critical theory which came out of Marxism's approach of issues like justice, racism and inequality with the intent of reshaping.

I think of the great reset right think about reimagining reforming or reshaping society and the culprit comes back to white people. So it's all because of skin color and this is almost exclusively applied to the United States which should tell you something about this.

It kind of goes along with the great reset to but the critical race theory is being taught now is simply to divide people to put wrestlers meaning white people in America against the oppressed meaning anyone who is not white or as a minority and this is completely on biblical from what we've been talking about in the Scriptures we are sharing an issue that's come up here in what we are here mid 2021 now, but it's really coming to the forefront.

And that's this whole vaccine issue and again I don't want to go down the bandwagon here necessarily of sufficiently be taken. The vaccine or not. But what I want to do is I want to play a short clip because were talking about the marginalization of Christians here.

David and your book canceling Christianity him in there trying to cancel the believer in everything that we stand for and in this very short clip here were going to hear that is why each evangelicals who are standing in the way of America getting well why evangelicals are among the least likely groups willing to receive the code 19 vaccine that's according to a February poll by the pew research Center. About 45% of white evangelicals. Respondents say they will probably or definitely not in a shot only about one third of black Protestants are hesitant by comparison, and just over one in five Catholics as our Catherine Watson reports. The key to ending the pandemic likely runs to the evangelical church encouraging evangelicals who are persuadable is likely the only way the country will reach the estimated 70 to 90% of nationwide vaccinations necessary to reach herd immunity Catherine Watson joins me.

Now she's a CBS News White House reporter Katie, thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us about this issue so get down from you. Why are members of the evangelical community so disproportionately on willing to take the covert, 19 vaccine just so the pulling mariner confessed in the last couple of months. Kaiser family foundation 8040 down white evangelicals to be. The group is most likely to say they won't get that back when they dive into the community that I have a lot of familiarity with myself. The issue isn't singular and the opposition for singular for anyone to read very multifaceted error evangelicals, particularly white evangelicals who have concerns for political reasons. For religious reasons for cultural really selfish reasons that I dove into a little that include paradigm. If you are concerned that there are very distant links to important field files there. That is to have concerns saying hey we just don't have really long term trials armies covet 19 vaccine there that if you have done concerns that are very specifically religions such as those who are concerned that there is some relation to something that called the mark of the beast in the book of Revelation is as simple as a future time.

So there are a number of different concerns on the issue and that's what I try to dig into trying to show that it didn't necessarily one concerned but all of these concerns together. In addition to this is in the medical community from the evangelical community play into the reporting. Also, a lot of people just think this is overhyped by people I got spread porters and journalists on TV talking about how severe this crisis is so Dave is here zero America not getting well faster is all the fault of white evangelicals because we are hesitant about this vaccine I think it's a perfect illustration of how we are being canceled because of the position were taking yeah I notice not a popular thing to say but it just seems like one of the most discriminated people in America is a white evangelical heterosexual male and of course your female cubit don't take the vaccine for the maid. Have you ever seen in our history know the answer is no.

The push for a medical treatment or something that had to do with health. I see billboards take the shot, save lives. I see ads on TV it plastered on social media.

The media they even made a joke of it themselves. Yeah like were blowing this out of proportion. But if you look at the numbers that's great and if you look at actual fact single. Yeah, I guess they did blow it out of proportion like it didn't exist without denying there was no such thing as a virus covert, 19 but the way they politicize it and blow it out of proportion and hopefully this will be written about fairly.

One day, but I am not holding my breath. I understand. Again, I'm reading some paragraphs from Dave is here arouses new book canceling Christianity how the left silences churches, dismantles the Constitution and divides our culture. David you say this the left can't win arguments and debates because their policies are awful and their worldview is warped. They rejected God so they now have to silence those who disagree with them and will hold to a biblical worldview and then you say what we are seeing is totalitarian and un-American. We knew a leftist government was capable of communist policy that we are seeing a dangerous one-party big tech media conglomerate suppressed speech and cancel American citizens and remember a sitting president was viciously attacked as you said for four years by the media and banned from major big tech platforms. In America the land of the free you say power corrupts, know the facts understand the times were living in. Beware of leftist virtue, signaling, and please do your own research.

Oh, and please refuse to be silent, and I think that is so key is, I think many have backed down in a reference to earlier were so marginalized and that deep state is so deep and the corruption on the left is so intense that Christians simply don't know what to do how to do it what to say or how to say it, absolutely.

And it's because we've allowed it to dictate this point. All right by our past silence. I wrote a book 6 years ago. The cost of our silence. I talked a lot about that because of our past silence not just on social issues. But just being able to speak about faith and Christ and biblical morality in our culture for a lack of doing that has produced what we see now, there have been the consequences of Christians taking the path of least resistance. By the way, I have a chapter on the COBIT test that the church path the COBIT test. My short answer no, we did not. We had churches cave and given the government under the guise of submission to government being unlimited submission to government is biblical but it's not to be unlimited. This is the problem we just went along would want to make any waves. We didn't want to resist and Hebrews tells us not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together.

How were we to gather and pray and have communion.

The Lord's supper to have fellowship together to hear God's word and online sermon or teaching by your pastor is. I would even call it a substitute for actually the saints being the church in meeting together. Plus all the lack of ministry. During that time when so many churches shut down.

Did that mean people were not hopeless anymore. People did not course need to hear the gospel people were not suicidal. No, just the opposite. At a time when the church needed to be the church and Easter Sunday. Last year the tomb of Jesus was empty, but so were too many churches and this was a problem. So now we talked about vaccine passport if not the mark of the beast, but you think okay some of like you have to show your papers or this is very eerie.

When you look at world history what Hitler did and I'm not comparing our government to the Nazis, but some of these principles that are coming up should be concerning alarming the Bible believing Christians. Apparently you have had an issue with and I can like to explore this for a minute or two and will probably do this do that in part two of my programming here, but you have no book speaking tour with this new product. Apparently you had some ads denied on various platforms you are dealing with a lot of reader apathy today and just assuming that some of this is the result of the product of 1 1/4 almost 1 1/2 years of co-vegan with that stunned the world. The culture in the church, so I'd like to explore that I'm going to take just a real quick time out here when I come back I want to come back and ask you about that. Specifically, David.

I really do. Why on earth you're not even thinking about a book tour.

Every author thinks about a book tour.

I'm an author, I know that book tours, but you're not even planning on one this particular year and that's because some things have changed. I want to talk about that folks on the back in just a couple minutes don't go away.

I've heard enough and you probably have to so have a majority of Christian friends, pastors and ministry leaders.

Censorship isn't coming for you sometime down the road if you dare speak the truth. It's here friends.

The left can't win arguments and debates because their policies are awful and their worldviews warped. They rejected God so they have to silence those who disagree with them, and who hold to a biblical worldview.

Welcome back, and before I had right back to my guess David's Hero zone. You can learn more about David David's Hero David's Hero He is the host of the popular radio program stands up for the truth you can look into that as well stand up for the truth.

That's a part of the Q 90 radio coming out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Let me talk about what's going to be coming out of Southern California and September. Saturday, September 11 Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, California has open registration for the hold he comes West Coast prophecy conference. I'll be there Jack Hibbs is the host Amir Sarah Fadi will be there pastor Barry Stagner and folks, this is my conference that Jack has, at least for 2021 because of the covert issues in Minnesota has not been possible. The last couple of years so registration is open for that one day conference, but I believe it's 9 AM to 4 PM Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, California.

It will be live streamed and I believe there's a very small charge. Like five dollars but you need to contact Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, California for that event. Once again I'm asking your patience with me today because Sutton went ravaging through my office and everyone sick, including me, so I apologize for my voice and the way it sounds. Today I decided I'd rather carry on with my guess, let him do most of the talking, then do a rerun for today's program again that conference is Saturday, September 11 approximately 9 AM to 4 PM if you can't attend, you can watch it online and will give you regular updates were carrying David's Hero so's new book, canceling Christianity and David when I went out of part one of my program. I was making a commentor to have that some of the difficulty you had. First of all your being denied a platform on social media to advertise your book, part two, I guess of my comment would be that you have suggested that you're not even doing a speaking tour because you're facing too much apathy talk to me about this and how are you being you personally and your book being canceled by all the major platforms. Thank you for asking that on social media. I've been shadow band for many years critically and understand the truth. That means you can post something, but they prevent people from seeing it in their newsfeed heretical shadow yesterday. I tried to put four different ads on Facebook for my new book, and all four were rejected. The main reason they said social issues or political issues or things that could influence public opinion.

Believe it or not that's what they said here the left influencing public opinion all day long. Whether that's the public to the media government there influencing public opinion and nobody with conservative or Christian views can give any input that we can influence public opinion.

That was a big problem so they rejected that out for the book is part of the book tour goes were in a different time now and I understand that, and this goes BC before coronavirus because even years ago. I tried to speak at churches that I use to go out little bit more and speak at churches lot responses. I would get if the material is not appropriate for our church or to controversial or we don't talk about those things right here I'm talking about a Sunday evening or Wednesday or a Friday night, not even talk about a Sunday morning and that's for another debate whether we should talk about these issues from the pulpit.

Even before the coronavirus. There was a limited amount of patches that would allow someone like me to come in with this type of material to talk about what's happening.

I have a show called Christ and culture. I talk about cultural issues all day long and try to do it from a biblical worldview to warn people when it comes the coronavirus now churches were closed, many of them are just starting to get back into having their own program. Some of my even having other events so to try to go down that road knock on some of those doors, knowing that the virus had affected so many churches as far as their scheduling their programming. I just wasn't willing to spend the energy or do all that work and it would've taken a lot more work to try to do that and I still would've probably limited in the churches I could go speak to K while guys like Gisela are speaking up in churches. This happens to be Jim Lawless. Now let me just clarify this little clip that I'm about to play because Wallace I believe is a but he's certainly a blatant socialist.

I would say's oblate Marxist. He has a welcome door and almost any church that would be looking at social gospel, and you address all of that in your book.

This new social gospel regions through a churches here. He's going to call you and me David's Hero, so an antichrist because you and I represent the white nationalism that the antichrist is going to have and let me just play this two minutes because we haven't left the subject matter of the church year and come back and discuss this to be a Christian is more than your stance on abortion and same-sex marriage. Followers of Jesus Christ must understand every person who walks this earth possesses the image of God.

For this reason, racism, sexism, and homophobia are an assault on that very image of God. Now we have a president who makes this degradation of the image of God.

Routine and yet this did not start with him. Trump is not the cause of all this is the consequence. Our country is embracing its very worst you showing how far and deep we really go there is a betterment a better future with this future involves choice moral choices. None of us can afford Christians who say they are not political will still make a choice in November 2020 rolls around this to be a choice of silence which works as affirmation of the status quo. It can be a direct vote for an anti-anti-immigrant white nationalist Suresh or it can be a vote against those systems, prejudices, choice proclaiming image of God.

Still has value.

I am going to use a word that is controversial and leaving so the Rev. must be said, when your policy and your words are parents of seven everything that Jesus said and did those policies are antichrist. The white nationalism in America's noxious races it's antichrist, the dehumanization of immigrants is not just the lack of compassion. It is antichrist.

The mistreatment of women through sexual harassment and abuse assault isn't just sexist. It's antichrist David's Hero's of them was Jim Wallace obviously is socialist, probably Marxist, but in the church. He is not band. He is not censored. He is not deleted.

He has an open door in many, many churches today say one word will you another word, Ron Wolf in sheep's clothing. First of all, is a Marxist. Second of all I do know if you remember, but he is the reason but to stand up for the true podcasts started 10 years ago explained that we have new listeners who don't know, he was invited to speak at a major Christian music entertainment Festival in Wisconsin called life that Jim Wallace was invited given the main stage right for a band called newsboy. There was no conservative Christian there was no Republican.

And all he did. He criticized conservative Christians. He criticized Republicans. He was divisive. He was a catalyst for this program because he was pushing social justice. He is an apostate apostate implement the departure from the faith think that he was accusing the right of unthinking boys are really good on faith.

They accuse you of doing the exact thing that they're doing social justice. Whenever you put a word in front of justice. Look out me discerning because it's a deceptive philosophy that captivated the church. I will say Jan many well-intentioned believers with this input of social justice having a major impact on biblical orthodox doctrines such as an understanding of sin, salvation, sanctification. This is redefining biblical justice and there is a contrast one more thing, real quickly and ground on Jim Lawless.

He was a radical in the 1960s was with the Democrats socialist of America he was an activist preacher. He's, of course, editor of the left wing so-called Christian magazine sojourners. He's an apologist for communist atrocities in Cambodia and Vietnam. He is a follow-up to capitalism. He contends that biblical scripture calls for the large centralization of government to aid the poor did Jesus ever say to the church of Rome. Hey we need your money to help the poor know.

And Paul writes the church is supposed to be helping the poor.

Here's the issue. We have not been as good of a job as we could have, but that doesn't mean get the government involved, but this Jim office background. He's a wolf and I have no problem with saying that flat out well. I only played that because you are telling me that you don't have all that wind of an open door in the church with your message here of canceling Christianity how the left silences churches, dismantles the Constitution and divides our culture new book were carrying by David's Hero is a but my point was Jim Wallace has an open door to many churches, not all, please don't hear me say all that he has an open door to many churches to go in and spew the Marxist line and call you and me, David, and antichrist.

When we're trying to stand up for truth and you have a radio program titled stand up for the truth that the tactic of the left. The accusation and who is the accuser of the brethren, Satan himself the father of lies. I don't much time we have, but I did want to talk about right in the book about Nehemiah chapter 4 and I make the point at the end of the book.

Here are some parallels we can draw that we need to draw with the conservative the American the biblical church. There was an attack on the Jews. When the enemies of the Jews found out that they wanted to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Your listeners are probably very familiar with the story in Nehemiah 4. They built the wall they were joining it together but then came the conspired threats and attacks of the enemies they tried to mock the Jews and they tried to threaten a military attack but here's one of the responses that I want to point out it's brilliant.

Nehemiah 49 says but we prayed to our God first response and because of them. We set up a guard against them day and night when my question is where the watchman where those who are guarding the flock where those who are trying to sound the alarm like it says in first Thessalonians 5. We are not of the night or the darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as others do. Let us watch and be sober. And then later on in Nehemiah 4 it said stationed men in the lowest part of the space behind the wall with swords families had their swords and spears and he told the people when he saw some people being afraid. He said do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord who is great and awesome and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives in your house.

It how can we apply that to what were going through in America we have lost the will to fight. As the body of Christ soldiers. The apostle Paul refers to believers at and from that day on Nehemiah 416, half of my servant carried on the work while half of them kept hold of the spears. The shield the bows and the captains were behind all the house of Judah. Finally, verse 17, those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens carried with one hand work and with the other, keeping hold of a weapon so they worked with one hand and had a weapon and the other with you. That analogy was what to put on the armor of God, is Paul writes about Ephesians chapter 6.

We are supposed to be ready. We are not supposed to be on defense. We're supposed be storming the gates of hell. Gates are defensive, but unfortunately Jana make this pointer the end of the book and the conclusion that too many Christians in America seem to think were on a cruise ship, but we are on a battleship. I was going to raise that very question. So why are we on a cruise ship not a battleship lot of reasons, one of them is the American-style when you have the freedoms that we do here, religious freedom, and other freedoms you tend to take things for granted. You tend to not pursue the things you should be pursuing even falling away from your passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ and dear spiritual things the discipline part of it is the best life now theology. We are supposed to be taken back with a little drink with an umbrella hanging out of it did her thing that on a chase lounge and just take it easy, leisure, entertainment, self. That's the message of American Christianity, when the actual message of Jesus is count the cost deny yourself and follow me.

You're listening to understanding the times radio and Jan Markel and I have on the lines from Green Day, David Sierra is older and more at David's Hero check out his podcast stand up for the truth outstanding every day out of Green Bay, Wisconsin were carrying his new book, canceling Christianity. If you feel like he is been deleted and you have and he explains why he explains the tactics he explains where it's going and you say this, David.

A revolution has been underway for some time.

The left is using the issues of covert, 19 racial division church restrictions, environmental extremism, transgender ideology hatred of former Pres. Trump immigration and identity politics to further their godless take over their goals. Here are some of their goals. Folks honestly they be 20 or 30, but here's a few crush the middle-class reset capitalism destroy freedom cause chaos and then David you've got a whole chapter on globalists and globalism and globalists are thrilled with everything that is going on in America and you even have a chapter in here on the great reset I've done many programs on the reset it's so important, I believe the reset is actually to be in the tribulation and now the world economic forum is delayed their meetings until sometime in 2022 wanted to explain why the globalists are thrilled with everything going on in America right now.

You can't fulfill their godless plan to reset the world and take down capitalism without weakening or dismantling of America and the powerful country that is the United States have allowed one said that America will never go down militarily. That's when you'll try to attack us on our Shorey we are too strong for that, as of now, because our nation is strong. It used to be because our churches were strong but he says if you can take America's economy and weaken it, dismantle it, if the economy goes down. America goes down because the military will go down and Trevor Lowden said. And if the military and America goes down, we all go down and that's where globalism will come into play. I know it's been coming up in the last couple years. This great reset but it was way back there plans. I want to just quote David Rockefeller against at least 270 Taylor" United Nations business conference. He said we are on the verge of global transformation. All we need 1974. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World order and now we have the coronavirus and this is the crisis there waiting for. And now you add racial division and the black lives matter propaganda on top of that, and then the angst in the division with politics and American Pres. Trump and everything that happened and we are overdosing on crisis, but I wanted one thing this agenda. Most of us understand most of your listeners understand.

Forgive me for preaching to the choir, but it is demonic. I just want to read something from Revelation 3 now Jesus rebuked churches in Revelation 3, I believe personally he would even more harshly rebuked the United States of Laodicea I mean America in Revelation 3 it says be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die for.

I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard hold fast and repent.

Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour the one thing I want to point out from that is you said strengthen the things which remain what is remaining of biblical true Christianity in America. We got a strengthen the remnant we got it converts we gotta convert solid believers in Christ to go out walking fight this battle with us. I'm calling you here again is from the book in the book is canceling Christianity. You can find it. My story can get on our newsletter lists and you can call my office. You say American citizens decide what kind of country they want to live and we want Christ or chaos, liberty, or liberalism, discipline, or destruction.

Religious freedom are reprobate revolution truth or tyranny you say.

Make no mistake, the left's hatred for Christianity is also its hatred for America itself. What she stands for and what she was founded upon. Sorry for being redundant, but it's the body of Christ does not engage in wake up to these facts, there may be little hope for a free America. I'm going to play just one more clip. It's just 40 seconds and David you talk about dysfunctional were talking about various things here that have gone haywire in the last 2030 years. I say Congress has gone haywire in the Tesla certain the last 10 years, but want to play this clip of Jerry Nadler, Representative Nadler because he is virtually saying that today's Congress has no interest whatsoever in God Almighty tonight as social media firestorm overrepresented in Jerry Nadler's response to Congressman Greg extends criticism of the equality act using Scripture same breath in the Bible on the house floor, sparking a sharp response from Nadler to start with the truth.

Deuteronomy 25 states, a woman must not wear men's clothing nor man where women's clothing for the Lord your God, to test anyone who does this now.

This verse is a concern about clothing styles, but with people determining their own sexual identities. Mr. Silvey would any religious tradition ascribes as God's will is no concern of this Congress and later states already has Todd Starnes that the words in God we trust are set above the wall of the house speaker's roster natives here as though God literally just got Thomas down to Congress. God's will is of no concern to this Congress. And we wonder why we've got some issues and we wonder why Christianity is rapidly being canceled and deleted right. Amazing. We know that Jesus is Lord, we know God cannot be canceled, but there sure are taken him out of America aren't day and this is Congress. For those lovers of history that understand our true on edited history in this nation are routers which 92 to 95% of the documents that you can find from our founders writing, acknowledged God, the Bible or biblical morality. But you don't hear that anymore. Now you're doing just the opposite. Pres. James Garfield once said, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt is because people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. And I believe Jan of all people of the church. Those who claim the name of Christ should be the one that should not tolerate this darkness. This corruption, but we have not held our leaders accountable. This is been part of the problem and to have him say that he needs to be saved. Of course Nancy could Hospital God needs to save him.

His heart needs to be changed and then worldview would change if you knew the one true living God. But the fact that he did say that speaks volumes 25 years ago. Democrats really think such a thing, and maybe try to push God out of legislation of Congress, but now to say that on the house floor. That was a very revealing moment in our politics you wrap up your book and just read in the paragraph is now your concluding 300 pages and again since we have the book and online store here. Olive trees use views as an viewpoint, olive trees, he is done or you say we must redirect immediately. It must be all about Jesus again, not about us, not about church growth not about buildings tolerance numbers programs are comfort or pleasing people.

The church is a battleship, but too many seem to think we are on a cruise ship and then you conclude the left is out to win. We must combat the lies overcome canceled culture and respond to deception with truth, and then you say, regardless of the ongoing purge of biblical Christianity.

We press on, and you close David. It is time to count the cost and be willing to sacrifice. It is time to join forces with dedicated like-minded believers today is the day of salvation.

And we must redeem the time, stay the course. My friend fight the good fight. Run the race and keep the faith. A crown awaits name and I got about three minutes left. It's all yours if you want to wrap this up so I ended with the apostle Paul word may have been his dying words but right before he was about to be executed. He said those very words to cheer on the Disciples of Christ to keep fighting the good fight that I have fought the good fight I've run the race that kept the faith in a crown awaits not only for me but for you who long for his appearing and one thing that we haven't done well is we haven't been fighting the battles outside of our church walls.

Ephesians 517 therefore do not become partners with them, meaning those were godless at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord walk as children of the light in verse 11 says take no part in unfruitful works of darkness but instead expose them, warning my brothers and sisters listing right now.

If you are gonna speak the truth. I encourage you to do it in love.

Nonetheless, speak the truth unapologetically, but it will not be popular, and it will not be well received.

Often times, and you will need to be discerning because at times you need to wipe the dust off your sandals and move on to the next town to the next person who has not rejected the truth of Jesus Christ.

And that's a tough battle, sometimes when we have to decide to move on that part of reaching as many people as we can. Having a sense of urgency because we know our time is short. Were looking at the last days, and these signs all around in a culture and around the world. David, thank you for all you do in a steer first-time listeners to stand up for the truth out of the sign your podcasts stand up for the and there is half podcast. You can look up and also my personal website David for your book is on Amazon and Jan, I do have issues with Amazon but that's one of the best ways to earn it out there. I have a feeling when they find out what I've written about Pamela Harris. It may be taken down, but you can look for it on Amazon canceling Christianity and he consigned it in my bookstore all his trees call my office get on our newsletter lists look folks for the last 2000 years societies have been trying to silence Christians and blot out God. If that were possible. We know it isn't so. America is no different. The left is been relentless in its commitment to destroy not only the church but the very foundation of America and enemies of God will use any crisis to silence churches to suppress the truth in advance a godless agenda. But what is the Bible say about the godless in Psalm two it says he who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then he will speak to them in his anger and terrify them in his fury, saying, but as for me, I have installed my King upon Zion, my holy mountain. And by the way that King is returning. He's returning any day. Even perhaps today I want to thank you for listening. I want to thank you for putting up with me and I voice this week will talk to you next week.
