Seth Gruber: Assumed Premises Can Destroy a Nation


Of development? I mean, come on, we're sophisticated people, Seth. You're trying to tell me that, you know, we have to get rid of birth control and all this. These are wonderful technological advancements we're told. And it makes life easier. Why should we inconvenience people? If you want to it's just a smidge, just get rid of the smidge.

And so the job is an ambassador for the unborn and ambassador for Christ, a watchman like Ezekiel is in scriptures to be able to understand that and articulate that. Okay,
