Fresh update on "abraham" discussed on Pacifica Evening News
"Kpfk dot or g'kar. We also have a half hour edition of the news guest on the weekends. I'm Mark Miracle. John Nichols, the national correspondent for the Nation magazine and author of the Genius of Impeachment. The founders. Cure for Royal ism ASSESS the start of the Biden presidency, I'll be it his first week in office consisted of just three days for upfront. How's Ginny Netter? Saying he thinks Biden's doing pretty well with a very activist beginning and there is a plan on the part of the bride administration to use the person 10 days thematically. To address a host of issues that were either unaddressed during the Trump administration, or, frankly, were a lot of damage was done. And so you've seen Executive orders and actions relating to the Muslim ban, ending it. Which representative Ilhan Omar so celebrated yesterday is a really truly significant step. Not just symbolic, but a very, very big deal. Um, you saw some significant action over the last two days on a couple of racial equity. Measures, including demanding that Cabinet agencies and departments go through and looking a very fundamental way at systemic racism within within their their agencies. Uh, you saw some significant moves on environmental issues reentering the Paris accords, also shutting down the Keystone Pipeline. But perhaps most importantly, if we step back at it, we look at the immediate crisis. You saw a lot of action over the first two days on covert 19 and the economic despair that extends from it. And so it's a very activist approach. The only counsel I'll give the one warning is that Um all of these are things you could do without additional money. At at some fundamental point. He's got to go to fighting has got to go to Congress and get that $1.9 trillion stimulus package as well as other initiatives going and at the congressional level. Things do not look to be going all that. Well, you're seeing Ah lot of signs of obstruction, frankly, already. And when you say that that he needs to turn down the Lincoln and turn up the FT arm What do you mean? What I mean is that there's a tremendous pressure on new presidents, uh, to quote from and reference to end and leak their presidencies to Abraham Lincoln, which is fine. There's plenty of good things about like it. No question about that. But What happens is that political immediate elite go to a certain set of phrases from like in which are all sort of desperate efforts to unify a divided country. And so it's talking about the return of our better angels and things of that nature again. All of that is fine is very poetic. But it becomes a default position for new administration's, where they try toe emphasize unity and emphasize healing to such an extent. That they de emphasize justice. A de emphasize accountability and so what? I was suggesting that pieces of course, you know, reference Lincoln. So that's fine, but Also think about what FDR Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he came into office in 1933 in the midst of a great Depression, some challenges. They're relatively similar toe what we're dealing with today with the economic despair and also just a sense that government wasn't able to handle the big problems. What FDR did was to pull number one, he laid out an agenda. It was quite an activist vision for what government would do but number two. He also pointed the finger of blame. He talked about Wall Street interests, corporate interests, their political allies and how that had made the Depression worse, And so what? I was arguing for what I'll continue hard before is the notion that In this moment, you can't really get healing and unity unless you have some significant measure of justice and accountability. And you were saying also in your article that it's a tall order for Biden in particular, as he His his service in the Senate, and as vice president was as as a centrist. Um do you think that he has it in him? Really has to have it in him. That Z interesting. It's a great question. Exact right question. But it's the answer is is that if he doesn't if he doesn't rise to this Challenge of the moment and and, frankly to be an activist president who does indeed cold His predecessor and corporate interest to account well, at the same time, laying out programs and policies that they get us to a dramatically better place as regards economic, social and racial justice. Saving the planet and, frankly reordering priorities. You know country where the military industrial complex is such a dominant force in our budget if he doesn't do that. The the sense of Disappointment. And even a sense of failure will do tremendous damage just to bite his presidency, but frankly to, uh to the Democratic party going forward if they hope to be successful in 2022 2024 John Nichols, national correspondent for The Nation Magazine, speaking with Ginny Netter, the Friday How Still The KPFK Upfront Morning program. Joe Biden is the first president to display a bust of the late co founder of the United Farm Workers Union, Cesar Chavez. It's in the Oval Office. Chavez, his son, Paul, says the prominent placement of his father's likeness. Sends the message that it's a new day after the Trump president, saying that the contributions of working people, immigrants and Lotina's will be appreciated.

Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem
"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

"Genesis chapter twenty two verse twelve. God said do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him for now. I know that you fear. God seeing you of not withheld your son. Your only son for me. These are god's words to abraham as he was willing to sacrifice his son and obedience to god got it said in the very beginning of genesis chapter. Twenty two verse to take your son your only son. Isaac even the emphasis there on. This is the promised son. Your only son take him whom you love go to land of mariah an offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which i shall tell you the very next verse. Says abraham rose early in the morning and did exactly what god said and he went with his son isaac to this altar. He laid him on. Top of the wood reached out. His hand took the knife to slaughter son. That's what i ten says. Immediately verse eleven says the angel lord called him from heaven instead abraham abraham and then we have the verse that destroyed verse twenty. Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him for now. I know that you fear. God seeing you have not withheld your son your only son from me so think about it. What verse twelve clearly teaches us. Is that fearing god. Leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us. We say that one more time. Fear of god leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us all throughout this chapter abraham had said god will provide a sacrifice and we know based on james chapter two. That's exactly what this chapter is about in genesis. Twenty two when. James is talking about the relationship between faith and works. James writes in james. Two twenty one was not abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son isaac on the altar. You see that faith was active along with. His works and faith was completed by his works and the scripture was fulfilled. That says abraham believed god and it was counted to him as righteousness and he was called a friend of god. Put this all together. Fear of god leads to faith in god. Trust in god with that which is most precious to us. And it's in fearing god. Like this and trusting god like this that we experienced the depths of friendship with god Don't you want all of these things in your life today. Fear of god alone. Not fear of man or fear of anything in this world. The leads to faith in god. Trust in god with every thing in your life every facet of your life your life itself and everything that is most precious to you in it. You can trust god with fear. God faith in god and a depth of friendship with god not just friendship with any person. This world is wonderful as that is we're talking about friendship with the creator god of this world So we pray. God we want these things in our lives we know that abraham though not perfect in a variety of ways is shown here as a picture of the kind of faith that we want the father of our faith in many ways in so i pray for my life and pray for all those who are listening right now we pray that you would give us a fear of you that leads to fear of nothing else no one else in this world a fear of you reverence for you all of you worship of you leads to faith in you can trust in god. We pray that you'd help us to trust in you with all our heart with everything we have. We trust you with our lives. We trust you with our families would trust you with our futures. We trust you with everything we have. You are infinitely worthy of all of our trust. You are faithful in every way so we put all of our faith in. You gotta help us not to hold anything back. Help us not to have any area of our life where we withhold trust from you gotta pray for fear of you faith in you and in the process got we say we want to experience the depths of friendship with you even today. God i just pray this over everyone listening right now. No matter what they are doing today. Tomorrow god help them to do it. Infringed ship with you.

There's a ton wicked talk about in this chapter when abraham journeys into the territory of a Lack the king of dharar. He takes sarah. And there's a lot that goes on here. That abraham does that obama does the whole point in this verse. That i just read it when i want to draw attention to as we pray is god's saying to Malek i know you've done this integrity of your heart in other words. Not defiled abraham's wife and it was. I god says who kept you from sending against me and the picture here as chapter twenty verse. Six is what we see all over the bible. The only way you and i can resist. Sin and overcome. Temptation is by the power of god. This is why jesus teaches us to pray lead us not into station but deliver us from evil because he knows that laugh to ourselves we will wander left to ourselves. We will send left to ourselves. We will turn from. God's good ways to own evil and wicked ways and yvonne wicked is the right word anything apart. From god's good ways is evil and wicked and this is what we are all prone to do in our sinfulness which is why we need god's mercy not just at one point in our life when when we put our faith in jesus and we ask him to forgive us of our sins we enter into relationship with him through faith. But it's not just that moment when we needed mercy we need his mercy at every single moment in the beauty is god promises to give us numeracy every single morning every single day all day long every moment and so this is the christian life a life of moment by moment dependence on the merc- and power grace strength love and help of god.

Who Belongs In God's Family?
"We're talking about the family of god. The bible about. I suppose who are god's children who belongs in in god's family who belongs in god's family quick recap god creates all humanity. Yes if here's image yet and I guess another way you could say that. It's to be his family little rabbit hole in genesis five. That answers that equates being in the image of god is to be the child of god okay. Yep it's the call of all humanity In all of our diversity but it is human nature to become tribal to not trust each other to be violent to each other in. That's genesis one through eleven. Just yep the fracturing of the fracturing of the family unity. God chooses one couple to form a family that will be a chosen family not better than any other families But chosen for a task which is to bring the blessing. Yeah back to all the nations and this is the story of israel. It's a whole story of the hebrew bible and it's easy to forget that in a way it's a subplot. Yes that's right. So the bigger plot which is all of humanity being the image of god. How is that going to happen. Will one family is going to do all sorts of things have seed that's a funny biblical term. Yeah yeah produce. Lineage produce lineage which there will be some ruler king who will deal with evil who will rule with righteousness. There's also going to be a place. Where god's presence is in all the nations can stream up and learn from this the temple. This is jerusalem. We have this hope that that's going to happen. Jesus comes and we see. Jesus saying right off the bat to his fellow israelites. This is our calling. We're supposed to be the city on. The hill was to be the light in the darkness. This is our thing we've gotta. We've gotta do this. And here's the ethic and here's what it looks like. And he goes and he's got this almost laser focus on israel. Yeah on the people of israel and making sure that israel actually can stand up to their calling which is to be the nation that will hang the blessing ultimately. Jesus does four israel. What israel couldn't do which is be the faithful israelite. Yeah and to be that ruler. And the way that he did that is. This is not what this conversation is about. But the way that he did that was with this backwards Just sacrificing himself his allowing his siblings to kill him. Yeah and that was his enthronement actually provoking them to kill the whole other thing but and through his death and resurrection was proven to truly be that that king the messiah who seed coming from israel and so now in i guess in a sense the vocation of israel has been solved because jesus has done it yeah or at least stage one of the solving the problem which was that. Israel's not being obedient yeah and is as fracture as on his fractured. That's right here comes. Jesus saying this is what it looks like and we didn't talk at all about. Yeah he starts the nucleus of a restored family of abraham yeah that relates to god according to the new covenant that ezekiel and jeremiah is a all anticipated a new way of relating to their god and so the gospels are trying to say that the family of abraham has been restored the nucleus of it in the group that jesus started

"That is exactly right and I just is crazy. It's the cycle of abuse. What can I say it doesn't it's true. It's crazy. Yeah. So, chapters three and four go even bigger with. God. Himself telling Abraham about the star co Lob which is near his home. which governs all other celestial bodies and WHO's year is one thousand years on earth. We. Into Cola is a great song about it talked about in other episodes. We talked about the song episode eighteen and then Coladas a as a concept and episode thirty two. Yeah it's wonderful. Abraham is told that all beings us included you and me are eternal and existed with God before creation and will exist for eternity. There is a plurality of gods many gods who did not so much create the Earth but organized it out of existing materials and then did the same with Adam and Eve. The rest of the rest of the book is a recounting of the acts of creation with painstaking to describe them many gods that participated. I can't tell you how many times it says and the many gods went and the and the gods meaning many gods it's like okay. Yeah Adam and Eve with sweared. Adam and Eve recreated together, and then again separately with the gods pulling a rib from Adam, to make you've just like in Genesis. It ends with Adam. Naming every creature brought forth before him. The translation was then forever interrupted by several bullets in Carthage. Illinois resulting in Joseph Death in eighteen, forty four which covered in episode ninety six. The book is grandiose heretical and give way too many of them of the Mormon. Church's believes that to this day lead many Christian denominations to claim that Mormons are not true Christians. Here's the thing though it is all bullshit. Not just in the sense that most religious texts, rheumatology allegories are exaggerations. But in the fact that what this book is based on exists and spoiler alert it does not say what Joseph said it did. Yeah. Right. Before we get into that there is one more coincidence that Mormons really wish didn't happen. After the turmoil turmoil of the succession crisis in the wake of Joseph's assassination. The church, split and most of. Church. Split with most of Joseph's family and therefore the mummies and the papyrus remaining. Inaba with. With Emma. Right, three of the higher is's hardware say were copied down and these copies did make it out west with the Brigham Might Church, and we'll talk about those in a minute. After Emma's death, her new husband sold the collection and it found its way to the Chicago Museum where they were destroyed in a fire in eighteen sixty three. Or were they. Shut down the mummies were lost to history but several fragments of the papyrus actually not burned and by an incredible chain of possession too complicated to cover today they found that away to the New York Metropolitan Museum of art and in Nineteen Sixty six and Egyptologists teaching at the University of Utah Dr Ezeiza saw them and realize what they were. Now Mark I think you might have something to say about doctorate pretty crazy I actually because of family connection I actually became very close to the deductor Attiyah and his wife. And As a young man and I mow mow their lawn and shovel their walk and a made me dinner and taught me some basic Arabic they were unbelievably lovely. Wonderful people. Lovely. Lovely. Yeah. Crazy. Lovely. But then there were very exotic to me because they were. Super Fascinating But anyway he I if I'm correct he brought the papyrus from the Museum of new. York. To the church here in Salt Lake Yeah well, he he he made the introduction so to speak and said Hey Mormon church. You might have an interest in what I think are your papyrus..

Uncle Man Hey, do you feel like so far in this show you've had enough Abraham I feel like you couldn't give me enough Abraham. Abraham for us to have. Like look. Abraham all the time. Uber Ham Ibraham. We also Birmingham for Abraham Abraham Abraham Talk. Yeah today is very Abraham heavy show and Doug is GonNa make a whole lot every year I think but doug Don't do the Brahim that everybody knows and loves gives us something new. Give us something fresh. Local habits. Some Fan. Fiction. Again stuff baby well, your uncles. The stated goal of this podcast is to help people who have recently left or in the process of leaving religion to take their first steps into a larger better world. I forgot about that and it has also to give us something to do in the witness protection program. That's. Part of that process shining a light on the strange silly and dangerous practices if you're various and sundry belief systems that have and continue to shackle the minds of humans. To that end, it follows that an unstated goal of this podcast is to prove to whatever degree possible that said belief systems are false. And it follows further that another goal of our of our podcast is to prove our own local Colt as false if for no other reason than we know the most about it and know how much damage it continues to inflict. I like many of you have been binging strange shows that in a saner safer world I probably would never have noticed. One of those shows that uncle. Mark. Talking about my career Doug thank you.

"Hint. Okay. That founder that I was talking about. His name is Bob. Oh sorry. The founder's name is the Bob Spelled B. A. B. which is Arabic for the gate and the successors name is Ola. which is Arabic for the key master just kidding. The region, the religion was founded in. Persia is a radical offshoot of Islam and called Behi-. ooh Oh. See I was so stuck on on the local headstone I'm like. Yeah. This Mormon offshoot of some kind, right? Yeah and then I found out it wasn't. I tricked you. You did drove me. What's funny is that this that headstone is is just a standalone headstone and it's not for a person it's it's in the Mount Olive cemetery and it just says. Hi It's just. Look. We exist we're the by is, is that hello and goodbye at the same time? Yes, it's like. Aloha ve Shalom. It's yeah exactly. Traditionally, you would say, hi, how you doing? So that was obviously a broad strokes. Look at the history. Let me just fill in a few of the gaps the BOB BE A. B or however you write it in Arabic. Was Born in Persia in eighteen nineteen. He began his occurs medic leader journey in his early twenties and was executed at age thirty, but for such a short life. He had a pretty big impact and he was prolific. Now according to him, he claims to he claimed to have written over five hundred, thousand verses of text. Take, for context, the Koran is under seven thousand. Wow. unfortunately. I want to belong to a religion with more rules than. FUCKING I didn't say a lot I said text. Okay. So. And there's some importance there unfortunately for the Bob Ists, most of his writings seem to have been lost. His writings started as interpretations of the Koran and Hud Eighth. But as he progressed, he moved more toward expounding on the metaphysical and philosophical. There is some dispute about what the Bob said just like with Joseph Smith and the various offshoots after he died the Behi- aren't the only people to claim lineage from the Bob. There are Baba's who went in another direction, but they don't have the numbers that the by behalf so they lose it history. Are they are they below? Yes. Yes. The is this on. Their the boy. Howdy. Anyway, the story is that the Bob said that every now and then an important, an important person came along to give the world the spiritual teachings that it needs for that time. Jesus the Buddha Krishna. Muhammed Abraham. These were all prophets of God who gave necessary messages for their time. He taught that a new guy was coming get ready. then. He taught that he was that guy but the behind just ignore that part and move onto. La. So Thank God I thought you were going to talk about Abraham again, and I've had just about enough of that guy. I know. You believe me there's You joke. But you're the one that's going to torture us with So let everybody do gird your loins digging. For the last little bit. And technically, the only I've got is that this is if we're going to be technical. Abraham religion of sorts Sure. Anyway if it's if it's a Muslim offshoot, right right? Yeah. So. Baha was a contemporary and follower of the Bob. He was actually a couple years older than the BOB was. Even though there were over twenty dudes, the proclaimed themselves to be the profit or divine physician that the Bob had.

"We see every day in American Christians. Comes from the book that they model their entire lives off of. Are we seeing ghastly -bronze-age mores turbocharged by hundred technology. The Bible is absolutely dripping with violence cruelty, emotional malfunction and hatred. Can we be surprised if the people who declared the guiding force in their lives may often drip with violence cruelty emotional dysfunction. The morals of the stories are all bad and damaging but so is everything in between. It's a thousand pages of inverted moral fables supported by endless passages of a completely dismal unenlightened worldview. Based on the value of human life. So, how can we expect people to think that it's who think that it's God's inspired word to behave in a more enlightened pluralistic unless callous way So that's what kind of struck me is just how Callous People Christians behave towards other people just generally. So that's I think Abraham and Isaac is an excellent vehicle for that conversation. I think. You're absolutely right. It's particularly in this case because. It's it's a foundational myth. Yeah and anything that is any hesitation or or regret in the mind of Abraham or fear or psychological damage in the mind of Isaac Ain't in the TAT doesn't even if it doesn't even rate mentioning. No right right and so did the apologists tried to say well, Abraham prayed and he pled about no, it doesn't say that anywhere he didn't hesitate. He didn't fucking hesitate and that's why he's a righteous man. Well, the thing is that the Bible in order to to extract the good holy messages from it requires revision. Yeah. Like you have to add to end or subtract from and or you know expurgate. In order to get anything good out of it you have to. You have to be some. PhD. In. Hebrew. Language. To be able to say. This word meant that word. Let's look all I've got is what's written in front of me right right I I don't have time to stay study ancient Hebrew and read all the other texts that have something this your standard issues Christian is not going to go get a degree in the classics right also the guys that have the degree in the classics, the guys that can read all of the Greek, the Aramaic, the Hebrew. Have gone through it and guess what they're explanations are zero percent more satisfying. No than just reading it Yep. It's just confusion and you know when you actually like slog through all of the different well, this is a misinterpretation of this word and this word actually probably meant this and that and the other. Okay it's still a shitty story and it just pushes it closer to total narrative meaninglessness right now if you need if the inherent word of God needs. The support of thirty five. And thousands of pages of explanatory materials that it's flawed might be. It might be air. Did you did I have you guys ever read the book by Chris? Matheson the story of God. I I, listen to on audio. Yeah. It's. It's a lot of fun if it went to anyone hasn't done it it's well worth your time. He basically just takes the character of God as he as he is introduced and. Does or says things throughout the Bible and gives those sets of pronouncements and actions character yeah. And it's not a good one obviously, but and so he takes the story of Isaac and and. Abraham Isaac and he's not the first one to do this, but it doesn't quite well that. God didn't think. Abraham. Would do it..

"Isn't that wonderful? Yeah. That's wonderful. I, mean Great Job Abraham for passing this horrible test with others but right you failed the test of basic humanity and fatherhood like really badly. Like any any other, any other moral teacher would be like, no, you fail. The trolley problem you fucked this completely up. And my favorite apologetic. Abraham Abraham had to learn about temptation and how to avoid it. What? Temptation is offering somebody something. They really really want in order to corrupt them. So. This obviously. That for thirty seven years. Abraham really wanted to kill the shit out of Isaac. and. He just needed a random voice to lose his dagger temptation fuck off with that so. Every inch of this story is terrifyingly cruel. There is nothing redeeming or useful about it. Even the minor characters are slaves. But right it's a here we are with the majority of the people who surround us all all on a day based on a daily basis. Thinking this is wonderful. We've explored around Fifty Biblical stories or parables here on the heretic mining for meaning and morality and coming up with an empty bucket. Whether, it's job the Good Shepherd David and Bethsheba the Ark of the Covenant Alishan the bears one single word of Leviticus. Filomena Zeki Exodus or revelation. It's all horrible and almost without exception the moral of the narrative. Is the direct opposite of the moral we were taught. They contain by people were either lying to us or perpetuating older lies on aware. There are not a there are not an insignificant number of conversations in the Bible between slaves and people who own them. In dance story a couple of weeks ago about David's terrible kids Amnon Absalom. One of them rapes his sister and the other one tells her to fuck off about it. That's it. That's the whole moral. And, sure, there's the golden rule in the sermon on the Mount. But for everyone of those gyms, there's a hundred slayings of Canaanites and the latest crimes of King David. Everybody loves to talk about what a sweet do Jesus was. But. They may be forgetting Luke nineteen seven where he said. But those might enemies which would not that I should reign over them, bring them hither and slay them before me. Or how about his call to abandon everybody in Luke Fourteen twenty six, which is a real. A real charmer if any man come to me and hate not his father and mother and wife and children and brethren, ancestors gay and his own life, also, he cannot be my disciple. Or, this Chrysler. Tidbit in love in Matthew. Five. Twenty nine..

"When when does that happen? Any Day now. So here's what happens in this fucking story a man who has recently evicted his lover and young son into the desert with one bottle of water to die of thurston exposure. Here's a voice that is not his tell him to slice the throat of and burn the warm body of his thirty seven year old son. He asked no questions makes no plea just gets the fuck up the next day tells Isaac and a couple of slaves to get the donkey they're going on a hike. He Chops. The amount of would he reckons it will take to reduce his beloved son's body to ash and off they go. When they get to the mountain he tells the slaves to stay with the donkey and they'll be right back. He expresses more concern for the well-being of the donkey and the story then for his. then. He essentially lies to Isaac makes him carry the would for his own fucking funeral pyre up the mountain himself? lies to him again when he asked the lamb is then ties his own child up and prepares without hesitation to cut his throat and let him bleed out all kosher like. I wonder if the bottle of water Abraham said Hagar is male off to die with was actually his slightly chipped world's Greatest Dad Mug. Anyway then in the nick of time, the voice tells them to stop so he does. They see Aram in the weeds and kill him instead Huzzah. Much morals. So hero, let's let's make this story the cornerstone of morality forever. Never you guys. Yeah let us teach this story to our children to let them know that if a voice tells us to, we'll cut their fucking throats and burn their bodies on a mountainside. I mean what? The actual fuck with this bullshit. A man I go can I just say I love the idea that the actual only possible good moral that could come from this is. But he didn't kill him. Yeah. Right. Right. Like that's as good as it gets and it's still shit and he gets credit for like. The credit. More credit than Abraham for anything. So anyway. A man that abandoned a woman child to die already are already nearly kills his adult son after lying to him and making carry the would for his own cremation is the good guy in this story and indeed one of the definitive good guys to billions of people worldwide. Yeah He. had. A he he might be the most revered man. In the weather than Jesus or Mohammed like right I butt Muhammad. Islam Judaism and Christianity. All reveres Abraham Abraham more. So than in case they do Moses. Because Abraham is the father of all three is religion. Yeah, right it's insane. So now, apologists have dressed this up more than a fucking Christmas, tree with reasons and excuses that are simply not there. You see all you see they say this was to shock the Israelites out of ever participating in child sacrifice again. That's bullshit. Abraham was down to clown with infanticide didn't even totally didn't even. PAS. Oh? No, you see. They say. That, this is crazy. This was a foreshadowing of the life and tribulations of Jesus of. Shut up it's not the authors of Genesis and the authors of the Gospels the two thousand years apart. Absurd. You see they say this is a test of faith..

"Sometime later, God tested Abraham, he said to him Abraham. Here I am he replied. Then God said take it's just one word, Abraham. Move then God said, take your son Your only son Whom you love FYI is. And go to the region of Mariah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on amount and I will show you. Early the next morning Abraham got up loaded his donkey he took with him two of his servants that means slaves and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. On, the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance he said to his servants stay here with the donkey while I in the boy over there. Why is that important? We will worship and then we will come back to. Abraham took the would for the burnt offering and placed on his son Isaac and he himself carried the fire and the knife that's equitable as the two of them went together Isaac spoke up and said after his father. said to his father Abraham. Father. Yes my son Abraham replied. The fire would are here Isaac said but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? Abraham answered God. Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son. And the two of them went on together. When they reached the place got told him about Abraham built an altar there and arranged the would on it he bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar on top of the would. Then he reached out his hand. And just sorry there seems to be just one little lake the just and then he bound his son there was like come here you. Know none none at all so Then he reached out his hand. Well, it does seem like it seems like Isaac might have been a bit of a credulous kid. Hey, what are you doing now?.

"In jesus naming pray man. Our faith word of the day explains what abraham did for the people of sodom. He asked god to spare them if he could even find just ten righteous. Men abraham interceded for the city which means to speak on behalf of someone else for an example in our churches when a pastor and people pray for the world we are interceding for them. Speaking to god especially on behalf of those who cannot or do not speak to him. Like abraham did yes he spoke to the lord both for the righteous who lived inside them but he also spoke for the unrighteous people. They're begging the lord not to destroy them but instead to give them more time to repent and believe there are many people in our lives whom we know that we can bring before our father in heaven and pray for them. Also that our lord would shine his mercy and grace and love upon them to so that they may turn from sin and believe in jesus and isn't that what jesus does for us in heaven. He intercedes for us to god and he did that. First and foremost on the cross so our faith at the day is intercede something that you yourselves can do as you pray for.

"Usually when we hear the events of sodom and gomorrah. It's a message of judgment. Or fire and brimstone of wrath and anger of ninja. Angels like that on the bible. Tv show way. What do you mean usually except for that. Ninja angels part. But that's exactly what we think of when we hear of sodom and gomorrah god destroying them for unrighteousness and corruption. Just like the time of the flood. I know but i think this a rather interesting more positive message in our story today that we can focus on. I mean wouldn't it be better to remember the faithfulness of the lord his patients with centers and his desire to save rather than destroy go. Then you talking about interceding. Abraham exactly and our young guests are with us right now for us to talk about what happened before the cities of sodom and gomorrah were away. I don't wanna give away the ending so high kids. I know as a quick reminder. During the lord's visit with abraham and sarah for you guys when he told them that isaac will be born within a year the lord also reveals abraham something he is about to do and unless that there were some cities that were in newer abraham lived at a time. Two of them were called sodom and gomorrah and god tells abraham that he's about to destroy these two cities for their great wickedness. Now do you live near family. Kids like grandparents or aunts and uncles and cousins. I do I have lots of neighbors. You have lots of neighbors. What about your grandparents. Grandpa lives nearby. It takes a long time to get to the first one. Okay and you don't have family nearby do you. Well abraham's nephew lot actually lives in sodom with his family. And abraham knows how the people of those cities are faithless wicked and evil. They did not listen to god or obey him they pretty much did whatever they thought was right in their own is like when the children don't listen to their parents or or one adults do bad things yet but even worse sodom and gomorrah were not good places for god's people to live in god himself so as abraham walks with the lord. He starts praying. Do you guys know what praying is. Yeah what is praying. Talking to god's through By both it is talking to god through words. And what do you usually do when you pray. Play to d we fold our hands. We closure is so. How is abraham praying. When he's talking to god like you said is in praying when we fold our hands. Bow our heads and close our eyes and talk to god. Yes we do to help us concentrate. We pray but brain really is simply talking to god's words and thoughts the way we're him knows that the lord is planning on destroying him he also knows the lord is faithful to his promises. He is the lord of life merciful and gracious slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. So abraham wonders if there are believers in sodom and gomorrah will god destroy them along with the wicked. What do you think. Do you think god would destroy the righteous now. Know that doesn't seem like something god would do. Remember noah no one watches on the face of the earth. Except noah and his family and god saved him eight souls. all abraham wonders the same. Here it sounds as if abraham's bargaining with god doesn't it. Do you ever try to do that with your parents. Get them to agree to do something for you. You don't what about when. Maybe maybe you should consult with their parents. You mean to tell me you haven't bargained to watch a movie okay. That's what i thought. But keep in mind. Abraham is praying to the lord knowing the lord loves his people so he asks what if there are fifty righteous people. Far be it from you. Oh lord to sweep away. The righteous with the wicked did abraham know and trust the goodness of the lord. So the lord responded for the sake of fifty. I will not destroy it fifty people. That's not a lot. Surely fifty could be found. Don't you think yeah fifty in one city. No maybe an as city but not this particular city. Could they fifty no. they couldn't. y'all think abraham knew. That wouldn't be possible that's why he very very very humbly asks again. Abraham keeps asking god about how many righteous people he might find to save the city's forty five maybe than forty then thirty then twenty and eighteen eighteen but but then ten and the lord responded every time for the sake of the righteous for the sake of ten in that city. I will not destroy it so after our bible reading i remember one of you said i'm not really sure what that reading was about. Do have a little bit better idea about what happened. Abraham i do. Yeah abraham was praying to god for those ten righteous people. He was trying so hard to save the city. And so what. Courage abraham had as he walked by face and what mercy and grace of god to hear abraham and listened to him and now the search for ten righteous people in sodom and gomorrah takes place and we will find out if god finds those ten people next week. Let's close with prayer. And this week pastor glaze. Can you lead us. Sure let's pray. Dear heavenly father had any farther. Thank you for listening to our prayers. Thank you for listening to our players and always acting as acting. According to.
