"Mike Gallagher. Yeah. Hey, my just wanted to make a little amendment to what you just said on the program about when did it become normal to riot every time there's a police shooting, But there's one qualification. It's on Lee when there's a police shooting of a black suspect. Well, that's wrong. And I've got a caller on the line who says that this officer in Minnesota does not deserve Due process, So we're going toe. Take Terry's call here in just a moment, but to the caller's point And to my question about About these riots, Rich Lowry writes. By now it's a ritual of contemporary American life.

"21 years" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"We've finished our eighth book of the bible today. And since we're reading an entire book tomorrow that means we're about to be at nine books total. Don't worry the book we're reading tomorrow. A super short just four chapters. Also i mentioned this at the beginning of the book of judges and hopefully you've already read the texts from today. And no this is a tough section but just a heads up that if there are little ears nearby you may want to listen later. This is one of my least favorite sections all of scripture but there are still things to be learned about god these chapters even though he seems mostly absent we opened with reminder that israel is living in anarchy at this point which sets us up for everything that happens in today's reading we start with a levite. The tribe pointed to work for god who had a concubine which is basically a household servant with fewer rights less permanency than a wife and whose main job is to sleep with the boss and have his babies she decides. She wants to leave this arrangement but he goes after her to win her back. He meets with her dad and things are going smoothly or father keeps inviting into stay day after day with him but on the fifth day the levi is ready to move on so they head out for the long journey home. His servant suggests they spend the night in a canaanite area but the leave really prefers to keep moving until they hit an israelite area. They stop in the city of gabeira which is in. The land allotted to the benjamins. They're planning to sleep in the town square but an old man comes bhai and urges them to stay at his place instead. Not long after that. The benjamin at the town's show up and demand to have sex with the levite if this is starting to remind you of genesis nineteen and what happened with the two angels who visited lot in sodom. You're not far off and the old man responds just like lot. Did win offered his two virgin daughters. The old man offers his virgin daughter and the league's concubine instead the benjamins didn't like this offer but the levite saved himself by sending his concubine out to them and let me say this in case. It isn't obvious. God doesn't endorse this. These things are the result. Of god's people turning away from god which ultimately means they have no regard for his laws either since they have no regard for him the men brutally assault and rape her and beat her to death in the levi doesn't even seem to be moved by her condition. It's heartbreaking and infuriating. All at once and i don't know whether it'd be more angry at him or at the men of the town because they're all pretty terrible he takes her back home and dismembers her and he sends a piece of her body throughout israel. Probably one piece to each of the tribes. Most commentators seem to think he did this so the people would have proof that his story was true. And there'd be no denying that the benjamins were guilty. And by the way we find out in chapter twenty verse. Five that the men who did this to the concubine where the leaders among the benjamins in that city in response to this the men of fighting age from all the tribes except for benjamin gathered together. Anytime you see the phrase from dan to bear sheba in scripture. That's basically saying from north to south because the new cities the tribe of dan just conquered and took over was about as far north. As you go in israel and the city of beersheba was about as far south as you could go and this passage even tells us that the tribes gilead those two point five transjordan jobs. They come to so four hundred thousand men from eleven of the tribes gather to talk about what the benjamins have done the concubine the levi tells. The story conveniently leaving out the role. He played in it and asks them what should happen. In response to this abomination they decide to confront the city of gabay. In benjamin i they try to reason with the people of the city. They ask them to bring out the men responsible for the crime so they can enforce the death penalty since they had murdered someone but the city won't give them up. They protect their wicked leaders. Refused to hold them accountable. Then the whole tribe of benjamin gets their backs as a result the benjamins ended up going to war against the rest of the country. In israel's first civil war they fight for three days and every day israel ask god for guidance he gives it and they obey the can't figure out whether losing if they're being obedient to god but on days one and two god doesn't promise them victory just tells them what they should do. Obedience doesn't always guarantee our desired outcome. Sometimes its purpose is to teach us faithfulness to god not to our desires but on day three god does tell them that dolan into the clever combo of an ambush and the bat signal. They pull it off. They defeat all the benjamin except for six hundred who go into hiding. The men of israel burned the town treat it like they would a canaanite city. God never commands this but they do it and while they're all gathered and morning what happened offering sacrifices to god. Two things happened almost simultaneously. I they're trying to figure out how to keep the tribe of benjamin from disappearing altogether and second they realized there's a clan who didn't respond to the call to come fight with them. One thing i can tell you for sure is that it wasn't the every might they love fight. It was the clan of j. Bash gilead a city in east manasseh across the jordan river without consulting god. Israel puts together their best most efficient plan. They send twelve thousand men over to go kill everyone except the female virgins then they bring back four hundred virgins to give to the six hundred surviving men the tribe of benjamin but oh no they're still two hundred women short so they hatch a plan for the benjamins to kidnap some women while they're dancing festival problem solved. I'm really thankful this passage is descriptive. Not prescriptive this was man's wicked plan to fix the circumstances. They were in because of sin when we fail to consult god and lean on our own understanding. We almost always make a bigger mess. And i just wanna pause to point out that all of this can be traced back to the uncontrolled. Lust of a handful of so-called leaders and the self protective measures of a levite thousands upon thousands died as a result. There wasn't much joy in today's reading was there and do you know why because there wasn't much god. The last line of our reading reminds us again. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes and the whole book ins with their wickedness increasing. So that's actually my god shop today. Where god isn't regarded and feared and honoured where people do as they please follow their own desires. There may be a temporary solution or a fulfillment of desires but there isn't deep lasting sustaining joy. Because that isn't found in following every longing of our hearts it's found in him he's where the joy is tomorrow will be reading the book of ruth relinking to a short video overview in the show notes.

The suburbs are far more diverse than they were decades ago, and many suburban voters had an intense dislike of Donald Trump Republican create A V is hoping some of those more moderate voters come back to the GOP. Now that they don't have trump who people voted against because they didn't Like him as a person. He's gone now. And so people are actually looking at issues now and things that affect them on a day to day basis. The changing politics in the suburbs

"21 years" Discussed on The Bitcoin Podcast
"Gonna have that much. I don't think you're going to have that much. Come online in terms of like i don't know there are there are like physical but then again is just talking about one market. We're talking literally business. Drives everything right. Bitcoin has making a big difference. In how companies think about when they start money You know what he say. Corey said like what's different this time. We actually why. Why is it different. This time there are actual function. there's functionality there's there's a use case this is crazy to me to even say this but i've intriguing. So fucking crypto has a use case now and whether we like it or not that. Use cases defy in the more people that find out about it the faster they find out about it in the more they realize. Oh i can wrap my bitcoin on either and then just let it sit there and it makes money for me if i go to nepal. It's over it's game fucking over. That's a use case what i do with my money. That's not supposed to have an action. Right now is a use case. Like i have a bunch of money but i don't have a plan for about signed for me. I plans for all my money. Like as Is an individual or a company. We have this aaron money money. I don't have plants or anything. Ernest plans for all. Like if i have a bunch of money as an organization like for not supposed to touch him for awhile understanding what i could do with that money. That particularly grabs it with relatively. Low risk is a use case in itself. Is that not by With someone willing to argue with me on that one but how long can that money to sit there and not do anything. It is where the garo interest rates so. It's actually a pretty good edge. it's like they. it's better than buying bonds holding cash right now we we. We talked about this in the icu. Boom right like One of the benefits of the ico boomer. Two thousand seventeen was not necessarily like put your project got a bunch of money. It was a bunch of people got a lot of lessons on how to think about what their money is doing. That is not like young people right like arbitration younger have have had the has had to start thinking about what they're doing with their money and how they're mondays working for them which is a rich man's mentality that you get from like schooling college anything and i think i think that's the most important thing is that we're we're growing. We're going a generation of people that think about what to do with their money that makes sense for not only them but also like If cryptos doing anything good like a group of people that want to do the same thing. But i like the guy in i even like the i see oba because allowed for people to finance into businesses granted. A lot of turn out to be garbage but had the opportunity to invest businesses when they previously could not have the possibility. Sue do do so so that mechanism is in the eagles system now and is robust before but more yet but my concern is are we just recreating what they're doing in wall street with all these derivatives any short sales in they're actually producing anything. Probably actually doing no. No that's not all we're doing. It's all happening. That's that's yeah. I would say we've had this conversation before like of course we're going to recreate finance. I don't have a pallet recreating finances on magazines. But i would like us to actually unlike previous generations may the baby boomer's actually produce something actually produce products actually produce something that is tangible in the software product. Yes yes we have. We have a lot of software botts in robustness non-immigration that nets right. But i do think that we need to have like like. I can see like certain things. That crypto has pushed aside or has forced to move forward like we wouldn't have a robotic cars right now if it wasn't for crypto because so much money was put investment in a six and a jump started that that push that a little bit further in an industry where there's more People willing to Manufacturer those chips in a byproduct of those because crypto kinda got in there squeezing that market a little bit people invested in that in started making those chips or graphic cards or certain other tangible hardware stuff is being utilized it in other ways but i would like to see something more on a real a go back to the coffee. You know buying a cup of coffee of investing in the farmer who makes the coffee invest in the person who produces the coffee that those types of deals and just not quite seeing that individual yet. I think those projects have come up but they haven't gotten traction because nobody cares about that. I care about liquidity pools and making like ten percent a day. Or whatever in staked tokens just then just. Yeah there's nothing to it. And i wanna play the game of musical chairs where we're now the lake the end of animal farm. Renou the pigs. I don't wanna be the pigs. The goat or want be able to do something. More tangible you agree hundred percent so my money's not encrypted right now for the most part only use it to build something yeah build what. You don't have gone baby. You don't even have time to build on ebay if you don't have the time to build anything you might as well stick it in defy. Now i don't want to. I don't agree with that how you don't agree with finance what you're saying. No i don't. I don't i don't wanna make more money that way. I don't. i've never actually contributed money to a liquidity lake. That enough yeah. I only accurately money into projects that actually have that are have the generalized function of. Potentially a faster cerium. That's where my money was going. I've never touched a liquidity pool like that mining polls fine as a different thing but liquidity pools just for farming now. I've never touched those. Yeah but it's not a liquidity pools performing. I believe there's a lot of negative connotation that goes along with like bro i broke. I broke it down pretty well for some some of my colleagues somewhat in close friends like it's like air your do you. Usd to wrap death. What is what is being done. Uniquely people trading in their leveraging the pool. That's pretty much it. That's pretty much people trading. And that's that's how you're getting with jesse that same. That's same trading is literally what makes the fucking world go round like that finance that makes the world go round because it's on crypto. Make money doing something doesn't mean you have to do it and continue right. Yes but in. Trading and market activity is something that drives global. Commerce is not anything immoral. It is what it is. It's going to go to if someone the wonder if i'm confident in my skill set right. I don't have to make my money that way. I can literally choose not to not because it's good or bad. But because i choose not to because i'm just confident right. That's very true. Yeah so that's all it is like. I don't need to put my money people because i have confidence in my own skillset. I mean that's very true. I have confidence in my skill sets as well. But i have confidence in my skill sets in that but this nice little glazing icing on top of it called put my money quantity pool so but not on interesting to me to each his own to answer course question.
"21 years" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"For most of this book and in fact for all of the rest of it. God is the only person who speaks. He's talking a lot about holiness which includes but isn't limited to cleanliness. He gives laws about how people should live in community together. In a way that is both civil toward each other horizontal laws or man to man laws and laws about how to live honourably toward god. Vertical laws or god to my in laws. He starts out by restating if the ten commandments. If you ever wonder why. God repeats himself so frequently. Just stop for a second and think about how quickly the israelites. Forget or honestly probably just blatant rebellion then. God dives into application of the horizontal laws. Loving your neighbor as yourself. I'm just gonna do a quick overview of some of the things he touches on. Because i think they really served to reveal god's heart in nineteen nine through ten. We see that. God provides for the poor via the surplus of the rich ordering rich not to fully harvest their fields. He'll reiterate this again tomorrow. And by the way this law is one of the ways. God brought ruth and boaz together. We'll read that story in a few weeks. In one thousand nine fourteen. God speaks specifically against entering people in the area of their weakness. The death can't hear your curses and the blind can't see your stumbling blocks. So don't use people's wounds vulnerabilities to your own advantage in. Nineteen seventeen got encourages people not to be ruled by selfish emotions instead. Be reasonable and communicate openly to avoid a rift on staff. The way we seek to operate by this principle is if someone something negative about another person they have twenty four hours to bring it to that person it helps us honor each other while also honoring. God not let these things. Fester in. Our hearts got also emphasizes the importance of heart here. It's at the root of everything we do. Then god moves onto other specific laws about how to honor him. If this whole section is confusing to you i can commiserate. This is a really confusing sections to know how to parse today. We can't throw it all out. We can't assume that since jesus came and fulfilled the law. That god is okay with you making your daughter a prostitute now or to sacrifice your children mullet even back then. This required a bit of discernment for instance. Could you make your son a prostitute. Could you sacrifice your children to a different false god. Besides malek even back then they had to dig to the heart of these commands to see how to apply them. So how do we discern what still applies today. The easiest way of heard it explained is there are three basic types of laws civil laws which deal with society's behaviors and punishments ceremonial laws. Which deal with being clean making sacrifices etc and moral laws. God declares what is right and wrong. Like in the ten commandments. First let's talk about. Why all three of these types of laws applied israel. Israel was in a unique situation. They were a religious group that functioned as a nation. So all their laws overlapped. There was no separation of church and state in litmus. Today gods people are from many nations so the civil laws. God set for israel as a nation state no longer apply however some of the principles of law still apply but the actual breakdown of how they're walked out will vary widely the ceremonial laws. Were all fulfilled in christ so we no longer need those there. No more sacrifices because he was the final and complete sacrifice covering our sins past present and future and while the moral laws were also fulfilled in. Christ the moral laws reflect. God's character so they're not going anywhere we're stuck with those. Because god's character tortoise people applies to people of all nations and it never changes. We even see jesus not only emphasizing the moral laws but digging even deeper on them. He pointed out that the heart behind our actions matters to not just the action itself if you want to read more about these laws and their distinctions will link to a short article about this in today's show notes. It's really helpful. Definitely check that out and as always if you don't know how to find the show notes. Try googling the name of the app for the platform where you're listening along with the words. Show notes all that to say since rules like belinda garments and not getting tattoos were about staying ceremonially clean and about being set apart from the nations around them. Those laws no longer apply. Jesus fulfilled all those ceremonial and civil requirements. If you don't know what kind of lawyer dealing with and whether or not it still applies try boiling it down to the reason behind it. What was god's motive and heart behind this law. Let's look at an example. Twenty ten says if a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be to death. So what kind of lawlessness. On the surface. It's definitely a civil law. Because adults at a specific punishment to be enacted however we know from the moral law. That god hates adultery. So what do we do here. We keep the heart of it the moral aspect to not commit adultery. Because it's clear how much got hated but we lose the civil punishments attached to it meaning. We don't kill the adulterers. God commanded killing in that instance because he was preserving these people for the birth of the messiah in the midst of a strong pagan culture. In chapter twenty one. We saw some regulations for the priests and how they're supposed to be set apart. Levi's with birth defects could receive the bread but not offer it. This wasn't meant to point out. The flaws of these priests was meant to point out. God's perfection remember. There were even rules like this for the priests who didn't have birth defects. They had to wear certain things. Enter at certain times. Everything had to be very specific. No priests gotta pass on honoring. God's perfection and holiness. So what did you see about god today. My god shot is from twenty one. Fifteen where god says i am the lord who sanctifies him be. I saw this phrase in exodus. Thirty one thirteen where it's actually one of god's name's jehovah mecca diskin the lord who sanctifies you. The hebrew used. Here is a bit different than the proper. Name of god in exodus. Thirty one the same meaning. God is the one who cleans up honestly after reading a bunch of civil and ceremonial and moral laws. That's exactly what my heart needed to be reminded of. He is the one who sanctifies me. Who cleans me up. His spirit lives within me. Conforming me to the image of christ. I'm not left here to pull myself up by my spiritual bootstraps. That is not the gospel. If you're feeling the distance between his holiness and you're cleanness take heart he is at work in you. It's good that you see how far you are from his perfection. That will make you all the more grateful when you fix your eyes on the finish work of christ on the cross in on the continuing work of his spirit within you praise. God he cleans us up. Because i can't do it myself. And i want to be near him. He's wear the joy is. Did you know that we have a version of the bible recap in spanish. We're so excited about it.

"And graven images. It points out our natural inclination to worship. Everyone worships something. Mostly we worship what we see regularly the challenge for our idolatrous hearts is that always has no physical form so in order to worship him we have to set aside our human nature which means setting aside the created things we can see with our eyes. You may wonder about the often easier even though god has no physical form. He does appropriate one from time to time but he shouldn't be thought of as attached to or confined to that form. Some people even believe this commandment prohibits having images of jesus or crosses and it's definitely true that those things can be worshipped or idolized or treated as though they have magical powers. I ve seen it honestly. I'm all for getting rid of pictures. Of jesus especially because most of them are renaissance. Jesus all blonde haired and blue ad and european anyway. The israelites would not make any images of humans or animals. Because of this word they know the human propensity to worship things so the only kind of art allowed in jewish homes or synagogues geometric art. It's a far cry. From the cathedral's we see today not long ago when an artist erected a statue of david jerusalem some of the locals who love david broke. Its nose off because they take the second commandment seriously i wanna say a bit about the word jealous ear because in this passage god says i the lord your god emma jealous. God god's jealousy here is not like our jealousy not at all. The hebrew word used to describe. God's jealousy here is only used in reference to god the meaning it carries as more like protective or zealous got his protective and zealous for his relationship with us. God's jealousy is entirely different than the kind of jealousy. You and i feel the word used to describe. That kind of jealousy carries more of a connotation of end. The like brothers felt toward him in the third word. We see how seriously god takes his name. There are lots of layers to this word. But i wanna point out to in particular. This word prohibits any kind of insincere or frivolous use of his name. Because it suggests. We're not taking it seriously. Personally i don't even like to use the acronym. Omg because of what it represents. God takes personal offense to anything that diminishes his character or person hood which is the next thing. I want to point to as we've talked about before. God's name's represent his character and his actions so taking the name of god in vain could also correspond to doubting that he is who he says. He is disbelieving his character. Many of us may have never missed. Use god's name in our speech but if we doubted god's character in our hearts this verse calls us out after got finished to these ten words twenty eighteen tells us the people saw the storm and the trumpet and the smoke and they were afraid then moses responds with something that sounds completely contradictory. He says do not fear for god has come to test you. That the fear of him. Maybe before you that you may not sin. so is it moses. Should we be afraid or not. You're sending mixed messages. The first use of fear in moses a statement do not fear carries the meaning of dread. It's the same word used in genesis. Three ten where adamson and he was afraid so he hid from god. That kind of fear drives us away from god in scripture discount. Kind of fear is sin adjacent. It's either a response to sin or it leads to send or both. That is the kind of fear. Moses is telling them not to do then he says god has come to test you that the fear of him. Maybe before you that you may not sin. This is a different word. For fear in hebrew it carries the meaning of reverence and awe. And it's joy adjacent. It has the effect of drawing us to guide. The fear of god is comprised primarily of delight and awe. It moves us toward him. It's the way we feel about the grand canyon. We take long trips to get to it to stand on the edge of it with our eyes and mouths open wide taking it all in while simultaneously being fully aware that it has the power to kill us all and delight and respect. That's the kind of fear we're supposed to have toward god. And as moses said that kind of fear keeps us from sending against him it produces righteousness in us. We have to reframe the way we think of the fear of the lord because most of us picture it as him throwing out lightning bolts on any centers who dare to darken the door richard. It's not what it is and when we think of it in that way we maligned his character which is as we just talked about a kind of taking his name in vain. We section in chapter twenty one as just a general outline of how to live in society with civility and respect for each other it's aiming to establish ideas of justice and morality that promote a that thrives in general it seems to be less about how to treat people and more about how to handle those who mistreat people it reveals god's desire to protect and respect life including life in the womb because all life points to the giver of life and especially humans who are made in god's image speaking of which what was your god shot today i loved in one thousand nine hundred thirty six where he called israel his treasured possession and he told them they were a kingdom of priests priests are mediators so if the hebrew nation is a kingdom of priests that means there has to be someone else on the other side of them that needs to be connected with god through them. This is all part of god's plan to use the israelites. And jesus specifically as a way to connect himself to the other nations of the world who are not israelites. God chose the israelites as his people in order to make away for the people of the disinherited nations to be adopted into his family. he's not exclusive. he's just specific. He's drawing people from all nations to him through christ and he's joyous. Are you following us on social media. We are on instagram. Facebook twitter and pinterest.

"Today's reading covered some really sensitive topics. So if you have young ears nearby user discretion is advised yesterday we wrapped up with a bit of a cliffhanger. God told abraham he was going to destroy the cities of sodom and gomorrah because of their wickedness. And abraham was trying to negotiate with god not to destroy the city of sodom particular. Because that's where his nephew lot lived. We know abraham really cared for lot because as you may recall. Abraham traveled hundreds of miles with three hundred and eighteen of his warrior servants to rescue lot and his family when they were kidnapped and taken hostage during a war. So here we are today with two angel showing up in one thousand nine hundred one and again. They appeared as human males. We know this because that's how they referred to in verse ten. I five gives us reason to believe that the human appearance they took on was probably physically attractive because the local men demanded to have sex with them. This is another scenario where like genesis. Six humans are attempting to have sex with angels. But this time it was human males the enemy has shifted his strategy a bit sodom is a city that was known for several types of sin. And this can be a pretty divisive subject in society today and even within the church itself one type of sin. Sodom was known for was homosexuality. We haven't gotten to leviticus eighteen twenty two yet. But it uses the same hebrew word when addressing this topic in detail. And again in the new testament. Jude seven through eight. Also points to this. But it's not fair to say that this was the reason they were known for. At the time ezekiel sixteen. Forty nine hundred fifty says now. This was the center of your sister. Sodom she and her daughters were arrogant over fed and unconcerned. They did not help the poor and the needy they were haughty and did abominable things before me. Therefore i did away with them. As you have seen we definitely see those things displayed in the way the local men of the town treated there visiting angels inhospitable than being gang rate. That's horrific and we even see lot himself. Who by the way was saved from the punishment that guy brought on sodom demonstrating his own wicked response to this wicked suggestion by the local men. He offered them his virgin daughters. It's unfathomable many commentators. Think this was merely a bluff on his part or maybe an offer. He expected to be rejected by them. But regardless what his intentions were gods power intervenes. God's angels struck the local men with blindness in nineteen eleven which seems like an appropriate penalty for their lust and greed. God can't even find ten righteous men in the city. This is reminiscent of the days of noah and the flood where only eight people survived. God could have destroyed the entire city but he mercifully sent his angels to warn lot in his family. Unfortunately lot only took them halfway seriously dilly-dallied until the angels forced him out. God destroyed sodom and its neighboring city gilmore merciful to lot and his daughters despite lots rebellious ways. Lot's wife had a different outcome. She was killed when she disobeyed the angel's command not to look back as they were leaving. It almost seems like she was looking back longingly. For the city. Sometimes people get frustrated when god destroys entire cities or people groups but we have a glimpse here not only into god's motives but for mercy after the destruction lot and his daughters moved to the mountains and the daughters despaired that there was no-one they could marry their fiancees had been destroyed in sodom because they didn't heed the warning so they took matters into their own hands much like their great aunt. Sarah did with hagar scripture. Hasn't yet forbidden incest. But they're still a lot of wrong happening in this passage and there's some mirroring here what happened after the destruction of a flood between noah and his son ham who was cursed because of his actions. Whatever they were moving onto chapter twenty we zoom in on abraham who is on the move again this time he's in king benelux territory and he gets flashbacks of when he was in egypt. And pharaoh stole his wife sarah. So abraham goes back to his old tricks pretending she's not his wife and kingdom of stole her way. Just like farrow head but one major difference is that king. Abbott didn't sleep with her and we have reason to believe that phero did since scripture says. He took her to be his wife. Sarah's kidnapping could really put a wrench in god's plan for her to have a baby with abraham so. It's a good thing. God's plan can't be stopped. god rescued them again. By appearing to the king in a dream in verse six. God tells me that he kept him from sending. God boarded his efforts to send. I love that. And as for abraham he kept trying to use his own plans to protect himself and sarah but both times his efforts only got them both into deeper trouble and it was only god who got them out in verse. Seven god refers to abraham as a prophet and. This is the first time this word is used in scripture. It carries the meaning and the weight of being a truth speaker. A human messenger of god to the people. I find this slightly ironic. Since abraham had twice told half truths but that just goes to show god's mercy and grace toward abraham by the time we hit chapter twenty one abraham and sarah about one hundred and ninety years old respectively and finally their long awaited son is born isaac despite is expert being a huge blessing and the fulfillment of a five year. Old promise from god it throws more fuel on the fire between sarah and hagar who still lives with them along with her son ishmael who is now about fourteen years old after a couple of years of their strife. Sarah here's ishmael mocking laughter toward isaac and she tells abraham to kick them out so that is it doesn't have to split his inheritance with ishmail. Then god interestingly tells abraham says but god himself does not forget hagar and ishmael god tells abraham he will make two nations from his two sons the line of isaac and the line of ishmael so ish males line was promised descendants and isaacs line was promised descendants and land when quick sidebar from what i understand muslims believed that ishmael who was the firstborn was the child of the promise. We're gonna talk about this a little more in the days ahead so hang on to that thought hagar and ishmael flee to the desert where ishmael almost is but then the angel of god shows up listens to their cries and provides for them where they've been cut off. She is still attentive to them. Meanwhile abraham wants ownership of a well so he makes a treaty with some locals. One of whom named fecal there are some strange names in the bible which is one reason why reading genealogies can sometimes be more entertaining than you'd expect. What was your god shot for. Today mine was in chapter. Twenty where god told abraham to pray for a mellick had kurt abraham absolutely had also taken action against god himself. Absolutely this shows me. God's great forgiveness. It reminds me of when god had job. Pray for the friends who had wronged him and reminds me of john. Seventeen twenty where christ prayed for me. The very one who sins are responsible for his death not only god forgive but he wants to display his heart of forgiveness to a broken world through us his people. Even though all god's children are children by adoption he still wants his kids to look like him he wants us to point others to his heart because only then can they see he is where the joy is no matter how long you've been doing tv.

"Today Jesus with the Metaphor about the kingdom that might seem kind of frustrating he compares the Kingdom to a vineyard and its workers. The owner of the vineyard brings in workers at various times throughout the day that pays them all the same amount regardless how long they were. The ones who work longer get upset. He says, Hey, that was the deal we made stop comparing yourself to those who work less time than you take what I'm giving you. This is probably shocking to the people hearing the parable because it goes against their societal norms. This parable reminds me of a few things. Jesus seems to drive home repeatedly I. IT shows us the tremendous amounts of grace God pours out if you are with us in the Old Testament, this'll be a bit of a refresher. But if you're new here, we want to define the difference between grace and mercy there a pair of opposites that work in tandem grace is when you get what you don't deserve and mercy is when you don't get what you do. Deserve. So when the owner pays the late hires a full day's wages he showing immense amounts of grace unmerited favor. Second this reminds me that entitlement has no place in the heart of a child of God since. God gives his kids is undeserved than it's all blessing and generosity third comparing ourselves to others is evidence that we've lost sight of what really matters. We've lost sight of our spiritual poverty and God's immense generosity. Finally this parable reminds me that will likely be surprised at those who are in the kingdom they may be people who spend their lives in sin and turn to him in their final moments. They may not accomplish much on earth for the sake of his kingdom, but they receive the same kingdom in the same rescue nonetheless, and that is evidence of both His grace and his mercy toward those he's in relationship with. After Jesus tells this parable he continues heading toward Jerusalem to begin the celebration of Passover and to be crucified, we'll cover the triumphal entry on Palm Sunday in the days ahead for now, we'll skip forward to the few other things that happened during the week before his death, and you may notice that his actions and his parables intensified during his final days. One of his more unexpected acts is cursing victory. He curses it because it doesn't have any fruit on it.

"Soon. Thereafter, he turned on the MANCHUS. And the dynasty was lost. On February. Twelfth Nineteen twelve, the mandate of Heaven was withdrawn. And the Young Ching. Emperor. Abdicated. By. March. It. was official. You're unsure KYW was republic's first president. Now nineteen twelve in the Chinese calendar. Was the year of the rat. There are many Cheney's that believe the year. The rat is an unlucky year and portends bad things. The rat according to the Chinese lunar calendar is the first Zodiac. Animal. And there are twelve of them. And it signifies a new beginning. I am not going to offer an opinion as to what happened to the chain dynasty. I trust anyone listening to my podcast. Can discern in decide for themselves. What happened? My hope and goal is that I have done a decent job telling the Ching Dynasty Story. I do want to say three things here. Number One. The. End of the Ching Dynasty ended over two thousand years of imperial rule in China. Number to. The revolution or the end of the Dynasty Can Be, considered more momentous than the French or the Russian or the American Revolution's. In size ing up the downfall of the dynasty and putting it into perspective. About that same time in history other longtime empires run the verge of collapse to. Think about what was happening with the other imperial empires, the austro-hungarian or Habsburg Empire. Or take the imperial czar or Romanoff Empire in. Russia. And think about the Ottoman Empire. But. I am not quite done with the Manchu story. Henry please life story is one that should be told. It has been alleged that his adopted mother. I mentioned her before she l. dinging Wong whole was bribed. By you're unsure Chi to sign the abdication papers on behalf of the young emperor. It has been further alleged. She received seventeen hundred pounds of silver or its equivalent to sign the papers. In her defense however. It has also been alleged. She did all of this under the threat of beheading. What we do know of course is at the abdicated at the age of six. The Republic of China that pui stay and live in the Forbidden City. Until he was eighteen years of age. She even allowed him an annual allowance. Any could keep his title. For a brief period. Twelve days in nineteen seventeen he was restored again is the monarch. China's road to republic was a bumpy one. In nineteen. Twenty Four. Also, the year of the rat He was forced to permanently leave the Forbidden City. He exiled in teen in China. In his autobiography pui recalls that he was eating an apple and ninety M on November, Fifth Nineteen Twenty four when Republic troops arrived at the palace. He was given three hours to vacate the. Palace. Later, that afternoon, he was presented with a declaration for him to sign. The Declaration was that his. Official. Emperor name Schwenn toll was forever abolished. He then left the palace for good. In a fleet of limousines. Many years later in the nineteen thirties during the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. The Japanese installed him as the puppet emperor of Manchuria. It was clearly. Merely a publicity stunt by Japan. who he had no real power. But he finally an naively fulfilled Israel. As if he were the real emperor. After World War Two and the Japanese collapse. He was arrested by the Russians as a war criminal. They held him for nearly five years. His crime. Helping the Japanese. China at that time also reviled him and considered him to be a traitor and a war criminal. Once the communist Chinese one, their civil war against the Republican led. Woman Tongue. was returned to China in nineteen fifty. He was sent to a Labor camp near Shenyang China. There, he spent the next nine years pursuing re education. And learning gardening. Finally. He was released and allowed to work for a salary as a gardener at the University of Beijing Botanical Garden. Obviously he and the Chinese government. Had made peace with each other.

"Ye. Ascended the throne. On December Second Nineteen O eight. He would have been two years old and ten months. Beyond the revolution that would soon force his abdication. There is really little to say about his reign. I will talk more about him and his fascinating life however later in this episode. So I have reached the final drama. Of the Ching Dynasty. That would put it out of its misery once and for all. Only to be remembered. In the history books. Before we get started into this final act. I need to introduce one more person into this history. He played a large role in what was coming. His name. You One. Sure why? I referred to him in a previous episode. Without naming him. He was involved with the Cudi ta orchestrated by the Empress Dowager. In. The late eighteen, Ninety S. To Stop the Emperor Guangxu from proceeding with his one hundred days of reform. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eleven. A seemingly benign issue. Over the control and ownership of railroads in central China. Lit The torch there would end the Ching Dynasty and imperial. China. Ironically. The Revolution. That finally ended the dynasty. was. Not. Started by either soon, yachts or you on sure kyw. It was spontaneous. The catalyst was the MANCHUS. Decision. To Nationalize to privately owned railways in central. China. The manchus thought the sale. Was a clever way for it to raise money to pay for the large reparations bill caused from the boxer rebellion and other expenses. The Ching government desperately need the money. The. Decision to nationalize however. Linda outrage by Chinese citizens. And national protests. The national outrage led to the creation of the railroad protection. Movement. which was at first. A political movement. The objection to the plan to nationalize the railroads centered on two issues. One. Many Chinese. Had invested a lot of money in the railways and their investments would be in jeopardy. If the railways were nationalized. And two. It was widely believed the purchasers of the railways would ultimately be. Foreign banks. And investors. The manchus badly mishandled the entire affair. In one of the Railroad Protection Movement protest. The Chin government overreacted and sent its military. That only worsened the already deteriorating reputation of the Manchus and the overall situation. The manchus eventually backed down from the Railroad Nationalist Nationalization Plan? But by then the circumstances were out of control. Fearing even more protests and riots the Manchus sent more troops. But the new additional troops that were sent were part of the recently created. Modern, army. They were created out of the reforms that had been made. In the early nineteen hundreds. Many of these men had been indoctrinated in the Republican ideals that the revolutionary. Alliance and its leaders had preached and spread through China. And Then it happened. On October Ninth Nineteen Eleven. A bomb accidentally exploded in a building that at that time. Had some of the soldiers of the modern art quartered. The Wu Chang. Incident. Now. Part of Wuhan Hubby province China. started. The Shanghai Revolution. Investigation into the cause of the bomb explosion uncovered a plot by these reform minded soldiers to overthrow the dynasty. The regimen involved in this plot quickly mutinied. In Chung. And quickly seized control of the entire Hubby province. These mutineers made your you on. Its leader and the new premier of China. However. Not, all of China's provinces joned this effort. Those provinces instead declared their allegiance to Dr Soon Sin. By then all of China was in chaos. It is said the Shanghai revolution generally occurred with minimal violence. Actually. That is not completely true. There were isolated areas of intense violence and human casualties. But it is true. The violence was not widespread. Those that declared Dr. Soon Sin as China's provisional leader Form their government in Nanking or Nanking. So in its earliest days, Chinese, revolutionaries were split between a group led by soon yat-sen and calling themselves the Chinese National People's Party or KMT. Wilmington. And those that want it up, hold the nascent Republican parliamentary structure that was still centered in Peking. By the end of nineteen eleven, nationals, revolutionaries were beginning to assemble a new government. They were led by Dr Soon yachtsmen. They were determined to form a Chinese republic. But they lacked the muscle and means to remove the MANCHUS REM power. For that muscle. Soon. yat-sen would have to reach out. And form an agreement with the other with the other revolutionary leader. You're one shirt guy who at that time was the powerful leader of the military forces. And an agreement was reached. An in exchange for military help to force the Manchus from power. Dr Soon Yeltsin conceded power to you're on. Your on shook I became the new republic's president..

"21 years" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"We opened today with David. Mourning the death of Absalom as far as we know he doesn't have any idea how absolute died or that Joab had anything to do with it but Joab knows and it seems like. He's filling a lot of guilt over David's grief and his own rebellion against David's orders to protect absalom rebukes David for not being more grateful over their victory and for leading the death of his enemy. Weigh him down even though it was his son. David responds in the way joab suggests putting a stop to his grief and going home to Jerusalem to appear before the people but it seems like David might harbor some resentment for jobs harsh words whether he was right or not. The people of Israel aren't really sure what to do with David Now. Should they still regard him as king? There are two primary responses and they're divided along tribal lines Judah David's tribe and then the rest of Israel interestingly the ones who are hesitating the most about reinstating Davis King or his own people Judah as he's attempting to convince the leaders of Judah to reinstate him. David does something unexpected. He replaces Joab the commander of his army with a Masa. Who was the commander of ABSALOM'S ARMY? Approximately twenty four hours earlier. Some people believed this was because Joab had disobeyed David's command not to harm epsom but we have no evidence that David even knew about that. It seems more likely that this choice is motivated either by David's bitterness over jobs rebuke or David's attempt to get the tribe of Judah back on his side regardless David's plan works and judy gets on board and reinstates him as king. But you can imagine this whole thing probably feels like a slap in the face to Joab even though he sticks by David the first thing they've had does once he's re King aside is pardon a bunch of his enemies. Shimmy I the one who'd been hurling curses at him as he fled. Jerusalem comes groveling before him because cursing. The king is punishable by death. But David pardons him and makes an oath that he won't kill him then. Mafia bishoff approaches David and he has an entirely different version of the story than the one we heard from his servants. Zeba back when he brought David the donkey's and Chapter Sixteen. According to methods chef's version. He did not try to take the kingdom back from David and David seems to believe him. David has already given Zeba. All that belonged to my chef but now he offers to split things up fifty fifty so he can honor his commitment to both men even though at least one of them is clearly lying. David also makes a generous offer to Barzilai the Gilead. Iit WHO is one of the three men who brought him food and provisions when he was in exile but Barzilai is like. I'm old. Don't waste your time pampering me but I know someone else who'd be happy to go instead and David agrees to take the man who is probably Barzilai son back to Jerusalem with him. David Resumes Business as usual. But they're still a division between Judah and the rest of Israel however the tables have turned. Now Judah is backing David and the rest of Israel is against him Benjamin named Sheba decides to rally following and remember the Benjamin. It's our Sol's people and they think that the king should still be Benjamin not someone from the tribe of Judah like David Sheba makes a call for the military men of Israel to leave David's Army. And they do uh-huh David realizes. This is a problem so he calls on his brand new military. Commander Masa the One who replaced. Joab and tells him to get their army ready to attack in three days but a Masa procrastinates so David Carlson the second-string including Joab the former commander awkward when a massive finally shows up on the scene. Joel pretends to greet him but bakes him out and stabs him instead. Joab LOVES TO STAB PEOPLE. You Stabbed Abner and Absalom now. Masa if your name starts with an A. All I'm saying is steer clear of Joab with a Masa dead. Joab picks up where he left off as commander of David's army and he goes after Shiba and his crew when they get to the city of able they besiege it because she bit is inside. Joab is ready to destroy the whole town but a wise woman who describes herself as peaceable and faithful comes to reason with joab. She basically says look. There's no reason to kill us. All our town has a rich history of glorifying. God just tell us what you want. Joab says they're just there for Sheba so the woman says don't worry I got you. We'll toss his head over the wall. Just Gimme a SEC. She is repeatedly praised for her wisdom. In this passage. Then here comes. Sheba's head over the wall just like she promised. She saved an entire city and jobs. Army goes back home. Having eliminated the most recent threat to David's kingship. Chapter Twenty one tells us about a three year famine in the land. When David asked got about it God says that Saul had committed some sin that had to be dealt with. If I were David would probably be like Saul is dead and I'm not saw. Why am I being punished for what he did? I didn't particularly like him either. Remember but David is far more humble than I am recognizes that he has inherited not only the kingdom but the consequences of the previous King's decisions. The problem was Saul had killed some nights after to spare them so David asks the giving nights how he can make it right and they say they want to kill seven of Saul's descendants to make things even David doesn't seem to consult God on the matter but he probably weighs his options and decides. It's better for seven people to die than for many more people to die from the famine. God never endorses. David's response and in fact the famine continues even after the seven or killed and it doesn't cease until their bodies are buried which some commentators believe was a sign. That God was displeased with David's choice. Here today's reading INS with a few battles of the Philistines being recounted from various times in Israel's history all of which have Israel as victorious over their enemies. What was your God shot? Today I was reminded of how seriously God takes in the land of Israel was suffering because Saul had broken a promise to the Gilead. I`ts this happened a long time ago but God cares about justice and he brought famine to catch David's attention so that he would address the situation and make things right. It comforts me to know that God doesn't forget it comforts me to know that he can be trusted to handle those things. It frees me up not to take matters into my own hands. It frees me up to pursue him instead of vengeance. It frees me up to love both him and my enemies. When I'm the one who has been wronged God can be trusted to handle it to work in the hearts of those who have wronged me on my behalf. And when I'm the one who has wronged others same thing is still true. He's going to work in me on their behalf. Our God is working to restore all things and that includes not just my story but also my heart. He's where the joy is.

We're looking for planets now. Wobble IN THE STAR. A little reduction in late as a cross cross star and we're looking at the spectrum For different ask me. She was like you said. Are we doing anything to make earth more visible? Like if someone's looking at us how do they know there's life here so question so there's not anything that we are doing to make earth more visible through these methods but theoretically hold it hold it we are cranking out? Co Two like crazy and industrial pollutants. Say Yes as as humans. We are created by a signatures. Absolutely right. We're we're we're adding to a carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and there are people who talk about looking for specifically for alien technology by looking for like technological chemicals like chlorofluorocarbons and things that that we humans kind of shoot. Hardly oxide I think largely so but we're not doing it. Purposefully right for Ryan do you do. You have one. You'd suggest a beacon no but as you mentioned that I imagine if they looked at us over the course of thirty or forty years and saw significant change that might indicate that people are being. But I don't have anything top of my head. I guess the second part of the question is so with the kind of studies. You're doing now if you were. You know. Thirty light years away looking back earth.

"You know exploring Mars or exit planets Sooner or later somebody says oh well when it gets people there can we? Can we call on is can we? Can we call when we leave? We know this Lusa. This is what this is. This is the wording this expression people say. Can WE CALL AS WORLD? Can we escape from Earth and build a better place and get away from our troubles? Do you get questions like that. And what do you say absolutely? And there's a couple of aspects to that so one is. I think that it's important that we focus on making sure that we are proper stewards of earth first because take even Mars. It's so close in the same. Solar Systems right down the planetary street exactly and it sort of viewed as the next best thing or the. Best Clinton to the day almost time length right but even Mars is not nearly as hospitable to life as the worst case scenario would in less than a second on Mars. Everybody there's no air for us it's crazy making. We're not gonna go live on Mars. We're not going to set up. Regular exploded. Nuclear weapons on the North Pole of bars and create an atmosphere and spurlock and his kids are gonNA run around in Ferny rainforest. Like what are you talking about? Sitting me? Studying other planets actually is more of a motivation to make sure that we are taking proper care of this one and looking at other planets. Atmospheres doesn't make me think we should try to go to other ones instead of ours. It makes me think that we really need to be concerned about climate change that we really need to focus on earth. The Way I think of it as a guy of a certain age. People D- Carl Sagan and Jim pollock and a couple of other people wrote a paper about Nuclear winter if you set off all these nuclear weapons on the same afternoon you'd have so much debris in the air above the air that The Earth would cool off and then in my lifetime. People discovered that the ancient dinosaurs were almost certainly killed by an asteroid impact which created in a sense many of the same effects to tremendous amount of debris above the atmosphere place off and then James Hansen. Who was Was at NASA. For many years retired now discovered the strong strong greenhouse effect on Venus. And so for me. Climate change here on Earth was discovered on other worlds by studying other bay. And so you're coming in a coming of age now where this were. Climate change is talked about in scientific circles. Con Constantly In political circles. Maybe not so much are. What's your view of the future here on earth for humans based on your exploration of exoplanets studying other planets in general has just made me realize how special earth is and. I know that maybe it's foolish to say that. Because of course it special for us because we specifically evolved on this climate and so it's you know we are the way we are because we make sense for this climate but it's made me realize how much we should treasure this planet and specifically you mentioned. Venus Venus this planet that probably was more earth like in the past and then had this runaway greenhouse effect and now completely inhospitable to life I mean the spacecraft could barely survive on it for half an hour and so that just shows me what can happen and how imperative it is to make sure first of all that we do the right thing here but also that we use excellent. It's and other planetary atmospheres to understand the different ways. The atmosphere is can behave change. All of a sudden silence rules will be right back. How would my or your life be fundamentally different? If you knew you were going to live forever. How far would you go for your dog? Do you have any advice for people to feel better about being alone in public? I'm Angela Duckworth. I'm Steven Dubner. I'm a psychologist at Penn.

"We've finished our eighth book of the Bible Today and since we're reading an entire book tomorrow that means we're about to be at nine books total. Don't worry the book we're reading tomorrow. Super Short just four chapters. Also I mentioned this at the beginning of the book of Judges and hopefully you've already read the texts from today. And no this is a tough section but just a heads up that if there are little ears nearby you may want to listen later. This is one of my least favorite sections all of scripture but there are still things to be learned about God in these chapters mostly absent we opened with reminder that Israel is living in anarchy at this point which sets us up for everything that happens in today's reading we start with a levite. The tribe pointed to work for God who had a concubine which is basically a household servant with fewer rights and less permanency than a wife. And whose main job is to sleep with the boss and half his babies she decides. She wants to leave this arrangement but he goes after her to win her back. He meets with her dad and things are going smoothly or father keeps inviting them to stay day after day with him. On the fifth day Levi is ready to move on so they head out for the long journey home service suggests they spend the night in a Canaanite area but the leave. I really prefers to keep moving until they hit an Israelite area. They stop in the city of Gabeira. Which is in the land allotted to the Benjamin Rights? They're planning to sleep in the town square but an old man comes by and urges them to stay at his place instead not long. After that the Benjamin of the towns show up and demand to have sex with the Levi if this is starting to remind you of Genesis nineteen and what happened with the two angels who visited lot in Sodom. You're not far off and the old man responds just like lot. Did when lot offered his virgin daughters the old man offers his virgin daughter and the concubine instead the Benjamins didn't like this offer but the levite saved himself by sending his concubine out to them and let me say this in case. It isn't obvious. God doesn't endorse this. These things are the result of God's people turning away from God which ultimately means they have no regard for his laws either since they have no regard for him the men brutally assault and rape her and beat her to death and the Levi doesn't even seem to be moved by her condition. It's heartbreaking and infuriating all at once and I don't know whether it'd be more angry at him or at the men of the town because they're all pretty terrible he takes her back home and dismembers her and he sends a piece of her body throughout Israel probably one piece to each of the tribes. Most commentators seem to think he did this so the people would have proof that his story was true. And there'd be no denying that the Benjamins were guilty. And by the way we find out in chapter twenty verse five but the men who did this to the concubine were the leaders among the Benjamins in that city. In response to this the Minna Fighting Age from all the tribes except for Benjamin gathered together. Anytime you see the phrase from Dan to bear Sheba in scripture. That's basically saying from north to south because the new cities of the tribe of Dan just conquered and took over was about as far north as you could go in Israel and the city of Beersheba was about as far south as you could go and this passage even tells us that the Tribes Gilead those two point five Transjordan drives they come to four hundred thousand men from eleven of the tribes gather to talk about what the Benjamins have done to the concubine. The Levi tells them the story conveniently leaving out the role he played in it and asks him what should happen in response to this abomination they decide to confront the city of Gabay. In Benjamin I. They try to reason with the people of the city. They ask them to bring out the men responsible for the crime so they can enforce the death penalty since they had murdered someone but the city won't give them up. They protect their wicked leaders. Refused to hold them accountable. Then the whole tribe of Benjamin gets their backs as a result the benjamins ended up going to war against the rest of the country. In Israel's first civil war they fight for three days and every day Israel ask God for Guidance. He gives it and they obey. They can't figure out what they're losing if they're being obedient to God but on days one to God doesn't promise them victory. It just tells them what they should do. Obedience doesn't always guarantee our desired outcome. Sometimes its purpose is to teach spatial to God not to our desires but on day three God does tell them that they'll win and to the clever Combo of an ambush and the bat signal. They pull it off they defeat all the Benjamin except for six hundred who go into hiding. The men of Israel burned the town and treat it like they would a canaanite city. God never commands this. But they do it while they're all gathered in mourning. What happened and offering sacrifices to God? Two things happened almost simultaneously. I they're trying to figure out how to keep the tribe of Benjamin from disappearing altogether and second. They realized there's a clan who didn't respond to the call to come fight with them. One thing I can tell you for sure is that it wasn't the FEMA. They love a fight. It was the clan of J. Bash Gilead a city in east Manasseh across the Jordan River without consulting God. Israel put together their best most efficient plan. They twelve thousand men over to go kill everyone except the female virgins then they bring back four hundred virgins to give to the six hundred surviving men the tribe of Benjamin but oh no they're still two hundred women short so they hatch a plan for the Benjamins to kidnap some women while they're dancing festival problem solved. I'm really thankful this passage is descriptive. Not Prescriptive. This was man's wicked plan to fix the circumstances. They were in because of sin when we fail to consult God and lean on our own understanding. We almost always make a bigger mess. And I just WANNA pause to point out that all of this can be traced back to the uncontrolled. Lust of a handful of so-called leaders and the self protective measures of elite thousands upon thousands died. As a result. There wasn't much joy in today's reading was there and do you know why because there wasn't much God. The last line of our reading reminds us again. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes and the whole book ins with their wickedness increasing. So that's actually my God shop today. Where God isn't regarded and feared and honoured where people do as they please follow their own desires. There may be a temporary solution or a fulfillment of desires but there isn't deep lasting sustaining joy. Because that isn't found in following every longing of our hearts it's found in him he's where the joy is tomorrow.
