Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'

"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

The Incredible True Story of Squanto

"In 1608 before any ships before any people settled in what's now Massachusetts, I never knew this, because we all know that the Mayflower landed there in 1620. Chris, you knew that? I did at one point in my life. Right. So 1620 is when the pilgrims land at Plymouth. Sorry. But I always assumed growing up that that's the first time that anybody came to like what's Massachusetts. But I found out that's not the case. And the story of squanto, which I'm going to tell right now, which just wait, wait till you hear this. It starts in 1608, and it turns out that English trading ships would travel from Europe from England to Iceland, Greenland make their way down Nova Scotia all the way down and they would trade with the natives. Now I never knew that. So the natives were familiar with English sailors coming and trading and giving them knives and pots and pans and they would give them pelts and whatever. And they would trade. I never knew this. Well, in 1608, a group, a group, a ship led by a captain hunt lands or drops anchor off of what is today Plymouth Massachusetts. And the braves come down to the shore to trade with them as they've done before. Well, just so happens that this captain hunt was a bad man, and instead of trading with the braves, they whack them over the head, put them in the long boat, take them out to the ship, throw them in the hold, sail to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. This is 1608, one of the braves was a 12 year old. Boy named tisquantum. Now this is true story. This is all documented. I've done the research. Others have done the research. It's true. So he has bought by some kindly friars, who seemed to treat him well. Teach him the Christian religion, and this is the part that we'll never know how this happened. But they arrange for him to be freed and to travel to London. Now imagine from malaga Spain to London. So this is an Indian from what is today Massachusetts, a Native American, a patuxent, makes its way to London with the idea, and this is where it's crazy of getting back across the Atlantic to go back home. I know. It's like being on the moon and saying, so when's the next ship going back? There's no next ship going back. What are you talking about? But I guess the idea was not insane. He worked in London from what is it around 1612, 1613 for four or 5 years with a family called slany. This is all documented. This Indian named squanto to squantum learns the English language. He's there when he's there when Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, we're talking Shakespeare is writing his play. So he's in London. This Massachusetts Indian, and this is years before the pilgrims ever get to Plymouth rock, crazy, right? In 1618, I believe 1619, a ship is found. For him to go back to his home. And he's going to translate obviously because he knows the language. He's going to be on the ship working with these English as they're stopping, you know, and he's going to be doing the translating and so on and so forth. So somehow he gets passage on a ship. The ship ends up having to spend the winter in I can't remember if it was Iceland or Greenland. It's in my book. Where does it say? Newfoundland now, hold on a second. Anyway, the point is that it took them quite a while to get there, right? So they basically, no, it was Newfoundland. Sorry. They spend the winter in Newfoundland. And then the next spring, this is like 1619, they bring him to what's now the coast of Massachusetts drop him off. Thank you very much. Goodbye. This sounds crazy, right? This is document. This is a true story. So a year plus before the pilgrims land. This Indian has made the journey from Plymouth to Spain to London, spans 5 years London, learns the English language, learns the ways the English, and then ends up back where he started. He finds his way on foot to the village, which is right where Plymouth is today, right? Village where his Indian, where his family is, they have all been wiped out. In ten years, he's dreamed about getting home, he's dreamed about returning. He's dreamed for ten years. He's thought in his mind of doing the impossible to get all the way back

The Danger in Removing God From America

"I want to read to you the proclamation. Of president George Washington. In 1789 on October 3rd this is how he proclaimed that a national holiday. By the president of the United States of America, proclamation. Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of almighty God. Now do you notice the beginning here be realize. You realize how saturated our origins are, with religion. By religion I don't only mean, of course, Christianity, the specific, expression, or as we correctly note today, in terms of values judeo Christian, in terms of religion, Christian. Values judeo Christian, religion, Christianity, God, the God of Israel. That is the God at this that this society was founded worshiping. If you remove God from the origins, if you removed no, not from the origins you can't accept the few actually distort history, which has been known to happen in your college classroom. But without distorting a history. If you would want to remove God from the the essence of America, you are in fact changing. You are in fact changing. The country, it would be as if you were to remove democracy. Does anybody argue that we should not have the vote in this country? Nobody argues that. To remove God from the from the equation of what is American. Is not a matter of I was going to say in my opinion, and I often say those words, but in reality it is a structurally. Dangerous as structurally dishonest to the structure of America, as if you would remove the vote.

Author Lee Strobel on What Near-Death Experiences Tell Us

"What is in this book, the case for heaven? This is your discussions with people who have seen who have experienced these kinds of things. Yeah, I interviewed neuroscientists, for instance, and others on the question of what a near death experience is really tell us. Because I was a skeptic about this. I thought no wait, they're just hallucinations. That's just oxygen. Even as a Christian, you were a skeptic of that stuff. I didn't think that the science supported. I thought, okay, I can't believe what the Bible says, but certainly near death experiences are just mythology and make believe in wishful thinking. But what I learned was that there have been 900 scientific articles written about near death experiences over the last 40 years and published in scientific and medical journals. This is a very well researched area of science. In fact, the lancet, which is the famous medical journal in England, did an article that said that when you look at all of the alternative explanations for near death experiences, oh, it's oxygen deprivation. So none of those explanations explain what actually takes place. And then I interviewed John Burke for my book. John Burke is a Christian pastor in Austin, Texas. He has studied a thousand near death experiences over 35 years. And his conclusion, which was radical to me, is that when you look at the core of what happens in these near death experiences, yes, there are some differences. But look at the core of what actually takes place. Don't look at how people interpret it, but look what actually occurs, it is consistent with Christian theology. That was very important to me. And you mentioned the word corroboration, and I'm with you. I mean, you know, when somebody tells me, oh, I died and I met Jesus and these 5 foot ten is brown eyes. I may go, okay, well, I can't corroborate that. But when we have a study that was done of 21 blind people, most of them blind since birth, who, during their near death experiences, could see for the first

Sen. Doug Mastriano Talks About the Importance of Local Politics

"And so that's why it's important that we have more diligence and that we have more people active politically and running for office what have you and every position support. We saw this past year in Pennsylvania and across a nation that school boards are important. The county commissioner's important, even state senators are important. And so we can't stand aside now. Yeah, yeah. I know. And I've said this on the program before, it's one of the things I knew growing up that phrase that said, all politics are local. And it does start right with your local school board. That's the basis and you go up from there. Yeah, you really can't make this stuff up. I mean, obviously loudon counties put an exclamation point on a whole point of view there and how important even school boards are. But, you know, around my state here, thankfully, a lot of people instead of just standing aside and here's one thing out, but that really strikes me. American Christians, we have to be careful about, I guess passivity is maybe not the right word. But just I guess lack of care, you know, hey, things are going terrible in our country and then Christians will often say they'll throw their hands up and say, oh, it's God's will. That is ridiculous nonsense. No, it's not his will. For some reason God chooses to work through the agency of men and women like you and me to stand in the gap like Esther's like giddy and like Martin Luther picky here, George washingtons.

Eric Reminisces About His Friendship With Larry David

"We continue now with Eric's interview at the Babylon B we'll have to ask, because you said that you were friends with Larry David at one point? Yes, at dinner, his apartment. When I was writing the hero pieces, the Atlantic monthly published a couple of them. And there was a humor reading. So it was like 1987 and somebody got me to do a humor reading with Roz chast's husband you know Roz chast, The New Yorker cartoonist, whatever. Her husband did some stuff, and there was somebody else. I can't remember, but I was one of these like two or three people who like in a basement in New York did a comedy reading. And this friend of mine that I met at one of these writers colony says, you got to meet my friend Larry. He will love you. He loves you and he's so funny. He's one of these before he became famous. Like right before. So he came and he loved what I did like the humor pieces. I think these fewer pieces are on my website, Eric and Texas dot com air contacts dot com. Eric and Texas dot com. But the humor pieces are still there. And so anyway, so we became friends and he really loved what I was doing, and he connected me with his manager whom he eventually married, and she was only taking she had him. She had Chris Elliott. You know, like, really, I was like, I've made it now. Yeah. And then I became a born again Christian and I threw it all in the garbage. I burned all of that with my elo albums and all that satanic stuff. Because humors of the devil. No, I never really overtly turned away from it. I just kind of drifted away. But so Larry and I became friends. I remember he had a dinner party in his apartment, and the actual Kramer came in. But at the time, I didn't realize he was the actual Kramer. Did you know he was racist? Or not so funny? That's a funny question. That's a funny question. I would kill to meet Michael Richards. I just love that man so much. But yeah, so I think when I became like a conservative Jesus freak, Larry David probably had problems

Rep. Jim Jordan: Conservatives are Winning

"Democrats object to more states in 2017 than Republicans did last week, but somehow we're wrong. Democrats can raise bail for riders and looters this summer, but somehow when Republicans condemn all the violence, the violence this summer, the violence last week, somehow we're wrong. It's very easy to lose faith my Friends to give up and say that's it. The crazies, the radicals are taking over. But then you hear speeches like that and you are reinvigorated and you realize there are some good men and women left in the swamp who are fighting and fighting to save our republic. That, of course, was congressman Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the judiciary committee representing the beautiful fourth district of Ohio and we are deeply honored to have him with us for one of our one on one discussions here on America first. Congressman Jordan welcome. Good to be with you, Sebastian, and thank you for having me, and thank you more importantly for all you do to protect freedom in our constitutional system and this great country. So it's good to be with you. Well, thank you for those kind words. We have so much discuss. You've got a new book coming out next week. We'll talk about that as well. But I'm going to do things a little bit differently on this one on one. I usually wait until deeper into the conversation to ask this question. But because of your role as an inspiration to those who, you know, fighting at school board levels of fighting across the country. Let me ask you this question right now. Are we finally beginning to win are the results in the Commonwealth of Virginia, maybe a taste of what is to come congressman? I think you're exactly right. I think it's going to build. I said this when Merrick Garland, Merrick Garland came in front of the judiciary committee a few weeks ago, I said, what you did when you guys spied on parents set up this snitch line on parents. I think that's the catalyst for a great reawakening for freedom in this country for the judeo Christian ethics and values and principles in this country that make us the greatest, the greatest nation ever. So I do feel confident and then we saw those results in Virginia sparked by moms and dads, having the courage. And one thing we all know courage is contagious. One mom stands up and defends her son or daughter and says, I don't want this racist hate America curriculum taught to my kids. One mom does it, then it's two moms and it's dads and it's and pretty soon you have a Republican governor in Virginia. And that is going to spread across this country. So yeah, we're Americans.

Dr. Tim Clinton on the Myth of 'Toxic Masculinity'

"My friend doctor Tim Clinton, he's the president of the American association of Christian counselors. He's also the co host with doctor James Dobson of family talk. The new book is called take it back, reclaiming biblical manhood for the sake of marriage family and culture. So Tim, we hear a lot in this day and age. We hear a lot about a lot of dumb stuff, but at the top of the list for me is this issue of toxic masculinity. It's kind of like talking about violent masculinity or whatever you're like, yeah. When masculinity goes bad, that's bad. We get it. But the idea that masculinity is somehow inherently dangerous or whatever you think, well, you know, that's like saying every cop with a gun is a potential murderer. So let's take the guns away from them. Their whole job is to protect the innocent and when they don't do that if they do the wrong thing, we prosecute them. So we're all on the same page, but people seem to be pushing this idea as though manhood is somehow inherently toxic. And we would say it's exactly the opposite. But why is that idea so widespread? You know, it's the logic's insane Eric, but even the American psychological association came out and basically broad brushed that statement saying that men were toxic. Eric, it's not that men are toxic. It's not that masculinity is toxic. It's that there's toxic behavior. There are men who make bad decisions. Have men blown it? Have you ever been on the receiving end of somebody's anger? Of their horrific stuff. You know, in a counseling world I live in. I see it every day. But Eric, that doesn't mean men are masculinity as toxic. We own our behavior, masculinity, God created this uniquely. We go back to our earlier discussion about being protected and providers the walls and so much more. Why they want to take it out again. It's the narrative. Because if you can neutralize men, if you can get them to shut down, if you can get them to, hey, what did throw say? The massive men lived quiet lives of desperation. If you can get them lost, if you can take them out of the fight, what the editing, all that's necessary for evil to try them in the midst of this war that we're in is for good men and women to do what? Nothing.

Why Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Ran for Congress

"Welcome back to one on one with Georgia's congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie for those you've been on the show multiple multiple times, but but, you know, we are growing every single day. We were at least 3 million listeners right now. Plus everybody else who watches us on video. So for those who see you every day fighting, but who don't know the backstory what you did and why you made that decision to represent the 14th district. Tell our millions of lists a little bit about who you are and how you arrived in Congress. Well, actually, it's a great question. Actually, I'm very normal. I'm just just like most of the people listening to the show. That's why they hate you. In the Democrat box. They hate all the regular people believe me. Now my husband and I own and operate a commercial construction company where the proud parents of three awesome grown-up kids and love our life just and I absolutely love being an American woman. I think it's a true gift to be an American woman because we have more freedoms in this world than most women. And I'm a strong Christian and I'm so grateful to be able to live out my faith and teach my kids what it means to be a Christian and to love God and be thankful for Jesus Christ. But here's what I saw Sebastian. I saw Republicans gain control in The White House, the House and the Senate in 2016 and then over two years, they completely failed us. They didn't fund and build the wall. They didn't do anything to pass president Trump's America first agenda has make America great again agenda. They didn't repeal ObamaCare. And here's the worst fail for every Republican that calls them self pro life. They didn't even defund Planned Parenthood. You can't even make that. That's all you need to know. Oh, yeah, so when I was supporting president Trump and was thrilled we elected him in 2016. And then I saw the Republicans in Congress in the Senate and in his administration completely fail. Not only president Trump but they failed all of us. That's when I realized that it's these career politicians that over decades have sent all of our jobs overseas, ruining small town America, hurting rural America, killing our strong economy, killing our manufacturing and killing the spirit of America, not only that, putting us in trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars of debt that will never climb out of, I realize that it's going to take regular Americans that are successful day in and day out in the real world to actually save this country. And so I took a chance and ran for Congress and

Detective J. Warner Wallace Describes the Premise of His New Book 'Person of Interest'

"J Warner Wallace has just come out with a book called person of interest. Seriously, this is an amazing book. I don't want to do all the talking. So if you don't mind, tell my audience, the premise, because it is actually really fascinating what you have done in this book person of interest. Okay, so here's the weird approach I took. I work cold cases and a lot of the cases I get are what are called no body murders or no body missings where somebody kills his wife or a wife killer's husband. And then claims that they ran off and they file a report of missing persons report, and that's how we take the case, and then years go by no one works the case. So just to be clear, some people know that some people don't. You are a cold case detective and you've been a cold case detective a real cold case detective for a long time. And you're bringing those skills to this issue. So I didn't want to interrupt, but just in case people think you're like blowing smoke, this is what you do. Well, I've done a bunch of these cases. They're actually on a date line. And several of these are no body missing persons cases. And so what happens is they get away with it for a while because nobody has ever discovered. There's no crime scene ever photographed is taken as a missing persons report. I opened the case, I had one case, Eric. I kid you not. The 30 years after the crime was occurred. She'd been missing for 30 years. Her family never once called our agency because the killer thoroughly convinced the family that she had just run off. Now, what do you do when you have no crime scene? No evidence from a crime scene. Don't even have a body. How do you make a case like that? Well, I always tell people that if she vanished on that day because he murdered her as like a bomb went off on that day. But moms are always preceded by fuses that burn slowly toward the detonation of the bomb. And afterwards, there is shrapnel all over the blast radius. So we'll make the case by simply examining the fuse and the fallout. So I thought, well, if Jesus is who he said he was. And let's imagine a future world where every single New Testament document has been destroyed. There are no bibles. There are no new testaments. It turns out in that kind of absent of crime scene, no New Testament. You could still determine the history and deity of Jesus from simply the fuse and fallout of history. That's what this book does. It takes a look at nothing other than just the history of unusual places that have Jesus fingerprints all over. I'm like literature art, music, education, science, and even non Christian religions. It turns out, you can reconstruct the story of Jesus from those aspects of culture

You know, they'd be like, hey, brother, I love you. And if you're new to that, you're like, what? You love me. No, I don't. So yeah, so it kind of put you off a little bit. So what happened? Yeah, it put me off a little bit initially. And then honestly, probably within a moment or so, I just broke, I wept like a baby. No one had ever said, no man had ever said to me, I love you. And here it is, this white guy telling me Carl, I love you. And it was just the guy was just so nice. I mean, to this day, it's just such a kind hearted guy. And then when he took me back to introduce me to other staff members that I was going to be working with, he didn't tell anyone that I was there to serve community service. He just said, hey, here's a guy that's going to be volunteering his time to help out. Show him the ropes. Show him what he needs to do. He told he told me that I would just report to him that no one needed to know. You know, why I was there and honestly, that blew me away because Eric, I was so ashamed, I knew that. The lifestyle that I was living like I said, one foot in the church one foot out. I knew better. And the Shane was just unbelievable.

But the story of bernhardt for the story of wilberforce, the stories that I wrote in my book, if you can keep it about America, why doesn't everyone know this? Why did I learn this? It's kind of shocking when you realize it. And it does make you wake up and say, I need to tell the world, everyone needs to know this because if you don't know this, how can you possibly function or think clearly amidst the madness? But anyway, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has that response. Yeah, it was, you know, just reading more. It was obviously eye opening, and then as you read more and learn more, it becomes easy to figure out who's deceiving you and who's not whether it's radio, whether it's television, wherever or wherever it may be politicians. You know, it's funny to me, but reading, it is, it's true what they say. Reading takes you to a different place to a different world. And that's exactly what began to happen

"If we actually move through the world fat way and couple that with the good works the light of christ in the world we wouldn't be having to sell this people would want to be a part of it and that's on us. We're not we're not being good ambassadors for him. This is not a good advertisement for jesus hauer out here acting and as you probably know if you have been listening to previous administrations of the christian alien of main beam of this show is that christians need to read the bible. You have to read it in you have to read it substantially. It's it's not enough to just go to sunday school in here though one verse that the preacher preached on sunday and not here god directly at any other time. That's not enough. It's not enough guidance. It's not enough to convict you from being out here and representing christ in a way. That is not christ like we just really have to get more committed to daily substantive devotional time if you don't know where to start if you like. I made a free many chorus on my site. I personally as a new christian. I read the entire bible in eight and a half months and that was with a lot of repetition of some chapters. And not saying that tebow's but saying it so that you understand that. It's totally doable. So on my website. I will give you all of the exact techniques tools of the products. The exact things that i used to be able to read and really engage with an absorb that much scripture every day. Even as someone with eighty okay. So that if you have another plan that's totally fine but if you don't know where to start that's available for you as an option. My website is marissa. Thinks dot com. And if you do try please let me know how it works for you. I would love to hear about whether or not you were successful with it. But having said that fair is more than one reason that christians need to become more scripturally competent. Yes we do. Need to do that. To know as christians had moved through the world. But i believe reading more bible will also help us be better american citizens. It will help us to stop regularly encroaching on other people's rights because we don't know the correct way to witness for jesus. It's really difficult to trample on someone else's rights or to disrespect them if you're approaching them with profound compassion right so to the extent that we can cultivate that within ourselves. I think that we'll improve the country improve how americans relate to one another. It's extremely important so again. You're listening please please please. If you're not already doing a regular devotional practice go ahead and start one. It's not something that you should be intimidated by the can. If you just don't know where to star you can take the course on my website but there are so many free resources out there so please don't feel overwhelmed by it. It's not. It's not like that at all okay. It really is something that you're going to enjoy doing once you start doing it regularly. So that's it for our discussion about whether or not christians are oppressed in america. Thank you so much for listening for getting to the end of this.

Nobody else attacks. Other people's faith in america but christians. This is why people don't trust us. People don't trust christians because their with christians. We have to stop blaming other people. We have to have enough humility to honestly interrogate our behavior and the role that plays with how christians are treated in society. We have to take responsibility for the reputation that we have because it is entirely are ball. Here let's have a little thought experiment so we can sort of examine how we normally would behave in a given situation right. Okay so say you have a new neighbor you out check in the mail. The neighbors outside you strike up a conversation. It's going fine. You're having regular small talk at some point you say what. What church do you go to your neighbor says. I'm an atheist more than likely you have one of the for following reactions. A you immediately. Inform them that they're going to hell be you start aggressively proselytizing to them see. You starts writing militias gossip around your other christian neighbors. Indeed you engage in socially shunning. This person the reason that spreading the gospel fails.

"Welcome to the christian alien. I'm your host mercy. The christian alien is where i as a new christian give perspectives that hopefully can help us be better ambassadors for christ. Today's episode is are christians oppressed. So i'll be answering that question telling you why i have the opinion. I do also examined some of the major reasons. Christians feel oppressed how attempts to spread. The gospel might actually be making this worse and what we can do to fix that. Let's get into it now. Disclaimer my disclaimer. Of the week. I am in this episode talking specifically about american christians. Okay so question will be discussing is whether or not christians are oppressed in the united states. So are we oppressed in the united states as christians. Now no christians are not oppressed in america does not obtain. Christians can sometimes be ostracized. They can also sometimes be restricted or discouraged from doing certain fate related activities. All of that is definitely true. Here's the point. I want you to understand from this episode. That is not oppression. The negative things that christians experience in america are not out of hostility toward christianity as a religion every negative thing that christians commonly experience every one of them is a reaction to the behavior of christians. In american society people reacting to your bad behavior is not them oppressing. You okay. And i really hope that you are hearing that and also receiving it in the spirit in which it is offered which is a fellow christian trying to improve the church improve the body of kreis. Okay what i'm telling you as someone who not a christian until fairly recently i can tell you that what you're experiencing that push back in that recoiling that you feel from non-christians. You feel bad. Because people put their walls around christians. It's not some you know inherent negative opinion about. Jesus what happens is you're talking to someone you mentioned that you're a christian. And then their brain goes to the last twenty interactions. They had re people who were christians in their rain comes back with this person is likely to disrespect him and so they put their guard up. I really want to make it clear. You are not being hated in the name okay. That's not the dynamic. That's happening here. American christians aren't martyrs. And i'll be honest with you. It's really offensive. It's really offensive. That christians have built this narrative that there's somehow being persecuted disrespectful. It's disrespectful to the saints in the early church in. It's disrespectful to all other christians up to the present day who actually are oppressed who are imprisoned who are beating. Who are killed. It's disrespectful to them to say that we're being oppressed because somebody said happy holidays to you and on that. No let's examine some of the situations that have been interpreted by christians as oppression. Okay so happy holidays. Why don't people say merry christmas anymore. So wore on christmas. The leftist perpetrating. A war on christmas and on jesus. You wonder know why people stop saying merry christmas because of how christians would react if somebody said. They didn't celebrate christmas because up the reaction of christians. So here's the scenario. You see someone you say. Merry christmas they reply. I don't celebrate christmas and then we say instead to them. Oh well i hope you and your family have peace. Enjoy of course. We don't say that what happens. People scoff people are judgmental. People start gossiping you know. Oh well. excuse me sarcastically. That's the reaction that christians have when people responded to merry christmas by saying they weren't christians. So the thinking was that if we normalize a more inclusive holiday greeting that that type of nastiness from christians would stop no no now we're just belligerent and demanding that everybody be assumed to be christian because we are in anything. Short of that is a war on our religion. You another example. All right how school prayer wanna why. You can't pray in public schools. You can't pray in public schools because of what christians were doing to the kids who didn't want to pray. Christians bullied them. They harassed them they physically assaulted him. There would be ostracized often with the approval of the teacher. So.

"And I hope, I hope that I'm explaining it clearly and I hope that you are receiving this in the spirit in which it is offered wage which is tough love. I'm, I'm being loving to you but also, wow. We can't be out here like this boss, not in America. And and it is strictly Christians. Nobody of any other religion, Pink's. Their religious beliefs are reason to start advocating politically for those beliefs to be mandated for people outside of their faith. Literally nobody else is doing this but us. Lots of people don't eat pork for religious reasons. Never in my life, have I heard of anybody? Trying to ban pork? Do you know what they do? Do you know what they do? Instead of trying to ban pork for everybody else? They just don't put it in the cart. And done. That that's how you practice your religion, you do. What your faith prescribes for you and that's it. And the reason. The reason, I'm not sure that I'm explaining this properly is because to be totally honest, I don't understand. Where this idea even came from and I don't understand. How it's not crazy to you already. Like I'm I'm trying to, I guess, convince you, in explain it but to be honest I'm not doing anything other than Same things that I think are incredibly obvious. It's Christianity, is your religion. If your understanding of Christianity means that homosexuality is wrong. And You should never have an abortion, you don't get gay-married and don't have an abortion. You don't have to put it in the cart. That, that's it. I I don't, I genuinely, I don't understand. I don't understand any Abyss. Okay, here's what it is. Here's here's, here's what it is, guys. Freedom and tolerance. Are the same thing. Freedom and tolerance are the same thing. You are only free to the extent that everyone around you tolerates, you doing what you want to do? So, you know, all of this hand over the heart, Fourth of July, protecting our freedom etc, etc. 100% truthfully. And this is not hyperbole at all the number one threat. To freedom in America is American Christians. American Christians aggressively in habitually encroach upon the freedoms of other Americans. And that's whack. That is not it guys. That is not the move. That is not the move, okay. That's not a good look. The deal in America. And why we have freedom is because in this country, you can do whatever you want to do. Nobody can tell you. What to do? In exchange for that freedom. That everyone around you is allowing you to have because they're tolerant of you. In exchange for that freedom, you don't get to tell anybody else what to do. That's the deal. That's the only way any of us is free. As Christians, we have got to back up. We have got. To completely reevaluate, our relationship with American politics. I honestly think that Christians should not be involved in political activism in any kind of values Arena at all ever. It's just not our place for one. But it's also. In addition, to it being way outside of what American citizenship requires of us, right way outside of the mutual respect, Mutual acknowledgement of dignity, that is required of you. When you are an American citizen, in addition, to our way outside of that, It's also a severely corrupting influence. In the church. This entanglement in politics and the seeking of Fame and power and money. That will rot of Faith from the inside out and it's not hard to see how that's happened in Christianity. It's not hard to see that the reason you aren't hearing what I'm saying right now from the pulpit. Just because that's not how church leaders become politically powerful. Telling you to mind your own business is not how they become useful politically. Is, is kind of man and I'm like, I said, I'm new doing the best I can. But you know, even even having just fallen off the turnip truck. The same it this this is not it. That's not to say that Christians can't be active. Politically Christians should be active politically But in terms of organized concerted political activism, we are called to do that for social issues. We are called to use our influence to care for and defend the least Among Us. That is what we are called to do as Christians. So, we we absolutely should be active and I would even say we should be active on a similar scale. So what we are now, but that activism needs to actually be what Jesus told you to do. To care for the sick to care for the poor to care for the hungry, the homeless be incarcerated. That is where Christian political activism..

"From a compassionate choice. They're not trying to understand. because in their mind, having sex and getting pregnant when they don't want to be pregnant, Has somehow stripped these women of their Humanity altogether. For some reason, when sex is involved in a woman is involved, we can no longer grasp. That everybody has choices to make and that you don't know anybody else's life. In the unfortunate Truth for us as Christians, is that the reason we're not being compassionate about it is because we're too busy trying to make ourselves seem whole better than they are. We're too busy trying to use them to inflate our own egos. We feel like if we're judging someone else, that means we're righteous, we're good. I swear for God if y'all do read the Bible. Listen, my website Marissa thinks. Com has a free Bible study took me course. So what? Many course If you are not reading the Bible everyday, please go and take the course. And start reading. Because I go into a lot more detail about this in previous episodes of the Christian alien. But so many I would even go as far as to say, oh of the problems within the body of Christ. Stem from Christians. Not reading the Bible. You have got to read scripture. If you are a practicing Christian, you have to Okay, but go take the course, all right. Now. Does every woman who seeks an abortion have one of these situations? No, of course not. Probably most of them decided to have sex and don't want to be pregnant. but, Meet segue into act, three act three, that's not your business. Christians. And and when I say Christians, I am specifically speaking to Christians in the United States, okay? American Christians. Let me, let me help you. Understand something about America, okay? In America. Your religious beliefs applied to you. They do not apply to people who don't share your beliefs. Do you understand? Cuz I feel like Christians consistently missed that point hardcore. Like we are blowing past month. The idea that other people don't have to abide by our religious beliefs. And I don't know where that idea became from. Who told you that everybody needed to do? What you're commanded to do in your religion? This is not a theocracy and for people who tend to be among the same individuals hysterical about their freedoms, being encroached upon Christian are super duper comfortable deciding what other American citizens can do with their genitals. Bro, that's crazy. They we the extent to which we are out of order. and not just, This issue not just abortion but across-the-board. It Christians are involved in American politics as of today. It's because they are severely over reaching your religious beliefs. Are not a reason to make laws. Do you get, like, are we all on the same page and understanding that having a religious belief is not a reason to legislate?.

"Judgement and Punishment. Okay, I'm not sure how I request transitions into another Act. so, we're just going to do this awkward thing right now, this little awkward Shuffle To act two act to what would Jesus do? So, we established in act one that Christians position on abortion is almost entirely about judgment off. Now, in addition to that, just not being a nice thing to do, the problem with being judgmental, theologically, is that Jesus specifically and repeatedly told you not to do that? Jesus told you not to judge other people. So it's it's difficult to reconcile that with with how ubiquitous this political ideology is within Christian culture. And honestly, that in a nutshell is why I started the Christian alien because as a new Christian who has not had any interaction with other Christians, because we've been in a pandemic. I don't get what this is. I don't understand how you got from back here, here being scripture, right? I don't understand how you got from here to there. With the pro-life movement though it that movement was not ever something that spoke to me and off as I've grown, in my faith, I realized that my primary issue with it is that it's totally devoid of compassion. The pro-life movement doesn't carry itself. The way, a person of Faith would carry themselves. It doesn't move like a Godly operation. And I'll give you an example. These crisis pregnancy centers. Okay, Christian, a Christian. Let me, let me tell you something about that. God is never about confusion. He is never about deception about manipulation about trickery. You know who is about all those words. So do I and it's not God. God is not ever going to tell you to use Satan's tactics for Godly ends. That is not something that God will tell you to do. It's not acceptable. It's really not. And it's it's embarrassing, frankly. As a Christian that we're out here praying on these young women in this way, without any regard for providing any substantive help for them whatsoever. It's not that you can't offer counseling for young women making this decision off. But you have to be doing it in a Godly way, you have to be doing it in the light because that is where God is. God, Is Not operating in secret, God is not about you confusing, somebody into doing what you want them to do. A Godly approach to that type of effort or Ministry would be actually talking to these women about what they need, if they are in a position where they are seeking an abortion because they don't have the support or resources to care for a child. A Godly Ministry. Would be providing them, those resources, it would be providing them with a job or with training for a better job. It would be helping them with housing. It would be even providing community support for them in the form of maybe inviting them to your church or even a secular organization that can actually help them day-to-day with the task of raising another human being, you know, these crisis pregnancy centers. Don't give them so much as a pack of diapers. It's not helpful, it's not compassionate, it's not loving and it's not godly. And I said, what I say you're going to have me about that one. Feel free. There's, there's no motivation of love or care or respect, or even a desire to be helpful. It really is off strident condemnation for other people. Which for Christians is prohibited in, it's prohibited for a few reasons. One of those reasons being hit pieocracy, I were all clearly moist garbage. So none of us have any space to talk about anybody else's anything. Welcome. We're all garbage. That's one reason, but the second reason is that we don't have enough information to pass judgement on someone else or their circumstances, but we don't know. And that's why it's not our job. We're not qualified to evaluate the totality and the complexity of another person's life. So, for those reasons, and I'm sure, many many more. Jesus told us that we should not judge other people. It was a clear, repetitive instruction, but even went one step further than that, with regard to this issue. Jesus himself modeled compassion..

"History up until about 15 minutes ago. I got here with no sex education, nobody told them about sex, they just figured it out. So I it's just, it's just a nonsensical approach, but okay, I'm going to let you guys cook I guess for the moment. But that's reason number one that Christians are not against abortion because of a desire to protect human life that they have no interest whatsoever in preventing unwanted pregnancies took first place. Reason number two, is that if you had a core belief in the sanctity of human life, and a necessity to honor and protect issue, that core believe would show up in other areas in your political advocacy. There are people who are not in utero. and there is 0. Organized mainstream activism to protect the lives of humans. Who have been born. Here's what valuing sanctity of human. Life actually looks like, okay, you ready? It looks like wanting everyone to have access to see a doctor if they're sick. It looks like supporting snap and WIC because human life requires food to continue. It looks like staying home. Wearing a mask in socially distancing? It looks like saying black lives matter. That's what you would do if you believed in the sanctity of human life. And I'll know about you. But I heard those crickets from Christians all the way over here. They are politically utterly indifferent to any of the Myriad policies that impact human life, every single day. Which specifically I don't affect the Christians are not zealous, Advocates of Wick. Can you traditional program for pregnant women and infants? Let you know that their position on abortion has absolutely nothing to do. With babies. The absence of any other activism surrounding the protection of Life indicates that Christians aren't actually motivated by that in their opposition to abortion. So that was reason. Number two, you don't seem to Value human life in any other circumstance. Reason. Number three. Reason. Number three. Is exceptions. Reason. Number three is that Christians have exceptions? For when abortion is allowable and specifically the two exceptions, I'm referring to are rape and incest. Now, don't at me talking about I don't think victims should be able to get abortions. Nobody said that like hush, go ahead. Why I highlight that stance from Christians, it's because if it were about the sanctity of life, then it's still is about the sanctity of Life, child, conceived in these admittedly horrific circumstances. Is still alive. It is still a human meaning. If if that was your motivation to protect life, the circumstances should not matter. It's not less life, because it happened due to violence. What's most, I think telling though about these exceptions are that they apply when it's nice, quote, unquote, not the woman's fault. Right. Interesting one. If it's not your fault, you're pregnant. Then you don't have to be but if it is Then you deserve to be punished. That is the actual motivation. For Christians opposition to abortion. Nothing about what they want politically or legally aligns with protecting human life at all. What it aligns with perfectly wage, is a desire to punish women for having sex. That they're hitting that nail on the head. If it's okay to have an abortion, if it's not your fault, that means you're using abortion as a means of exacting, judgement, or punishment, Farm women that you believe have misbehaved sexually. When I say that Christians are lying about this. That is what I mean. They are telling themselves that they are doing this to protect lives when in fact, quite obviously their activism is in way connected to that end. It is entirely about..

"Christians are not telling the truth about their position on abortion. They're just not and I don't mean, you know, the cheap you're against abortion but you had an abortion or your kid had an abortion. Yes, that does happen, but that's not what this is about. Christians are not being truthful, about their own notifications, in their advocacy around this issue. They simply are not being honest about why they're so invested and what they're trying to accomplish. So, let's talk about what Christians stated position. On abortion is. Be official Christian line on abortion is that human life is precious and must be protected, and that is why their wage against abortion, okay? That's the, that's the position that they will give you to be honest. That's the position that they believe they hold because I don't believe they've never actually examined their own motivations within themselves. So, to clarify, when I say Christians aren't telling the truth about this, I don't mean that they are necessarily intentionally being deceptive. I mean, that they also are not being truthful with themselves about what's actually happening on here. Now, the official Christian position about abortion is supported in Scripture that specifically Psalm 139 verse cusses being knitted together in the womb being for known at the beginning of time. The number of days you would have at cetera, et cetera. Christian faith will tell you that this is why they are passionate about abortion. I'm going to give you three reasons why that is not correct. There are three excellent indicators that I believe. So Christian advocacy about abortion is not motivated by protecting human life. Reason number one, if opposition to abortion was actually about protecting human life. Then preventing unwanted pregnancy would be the number one priority for pro-life activists. If you are genuinely concerned about killing babies, what is more important to you than that? What is more important to you? Then stopping babies from being killed. He goes a well. Yeah, that's why they, you know, advocate for bans and restrictions and and so forth. That takes so much long time to accomplish, and in the interim people are having abortions every single day, it does not make sense to focus. All of your activism on something that does not have an immediate effect. If what you're trying to do is save lives. Were this actually Christians motivations they would be on the front lines of addressing every underlying cause that prompts someone to get an abortion in the first place, they would be the ones advocating for the availability of birth control. If what they wanted to do was stop people killing babies. But beyond that, their activism would also be responsive to evidence about whether or not it's affected. If Christians were actually concerned about preventing abortions about reducing the number of abortions. Then their activism would be centered around things that are affected at preventing that in their activism is not. Questions know perfectly. Well, that abstinence-only sex-ed does not reduce the rate of abortion. They know that it increases the likelihood of teen pregnancy. Many women get abortions because they don't have the financial resources to support a baby. If your goal is preventing abortions, you should be leading the charge in addressing the underlying issues that cause women to not be able to support a family in the first place. Christians should be on the front lines of educational opportunities. On bringing jobs to low-income individuals communities on fighting pay inequity and employment discrimination against women. Christians, the Christians should be the Humane people working toward addressing these underlying causes of, I would say most abortions. Yet, they continue to aggressively push this idea that they know will result in more abortions because of the sanctity of life is not what this is about for them and just to note on abstinence-only sex education. The idea that if you don't tell them about sex they won't have. It is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. I don't know. When the first sex ed started to happen. You couldn't have been that long generously a hundred years ago. That means jobs for the hundreds of thousands of years, human beings have been around. They have figured out sex with no education at all, every single human in human.

"What's up everybody. Welcome to lightning bolts and other jackets where we take our concerns and questions about christianity and figure out a kick in the teeth. I'm victors asano your host here. We go. We are back with a brand new series. It's called lies. Christians believe so is new series with elias christians. Tell themselves because guess what like we say in my family lying to yourself is still in. This can be lies. That you've believed like all your life. Maybe the church tall. Maybe your family told you. Maybe there's maybe you're not a christian in these are lies that you believe about christianity or maybe lies that you have taken from christianity tried to apply them to your own life without being a christian. You know maybe this we're going to cover a few of them. So hopefully we can bring god's truth into the mix and breakup of these lies that we tend to live by almost right so this one is a christian line number one number one is god. Wants me to be happy. Everybody already just got upset because oh what about the joy of the lord and given the desires of our heart and all this other stuff. We'll talk about it. But i've seen this everywhere and even if we don't say it out loud we think and we use it to justify Dumb stuff to justify sins. Even we'll talk about that later on in the episode to lies like this especially this one keeps us from living. The life has for us.

"If we, who's we if we the Church Christians believers in the body of Christ. If we say, we have notion. That means no sin currently present at any time. If, we say that we currently do not have any sin. We are deceiving ourselves and one of the things about self-deception is. It is so deceiving so we have sin of. That resides in us because while we are born again. We have a new nature. There is a battle that wages with the old nature because as we will get into later. sanctification is a process and we have not yet reached are glorified state there, and so if we say we have no sin were deceiving ourselves, but not only are we deceiving ourselves? The truth is not in us. That means we don't understand the full truth of our nature, and the Gospel and the relationship between us, a holy God and the true nature in sinfulness of sin, so we as believers. Though we are in Christ. We still. Sin And, what are we to do because since still dwells in us the apostle tells us. Confess our sins. And as a result of us, being faithful to confess our sins, he that is Christ is faithful and righteous to forgive us of our sins and cleanses from all unrighteousness. And that right, there is a further reminder of why proper biblical Herman. Ix and interpretation is important. It's important that we not ice jeep passes passages of scripture to support our own emotional thought, or even intellectual thought, but always compare everything with the backdrop of scripture. So Yeah So Man Amen, and right on, and and that being said again I mean the majority of us acknowledged that we still send. And that? We wrestle with the flesh daily, and remember you know the definition of a hypocrite hypocrites. Someone who does things that he claims not to do now. You know there are those outside and inside the church. Who that we still wrestle with the flesh and sin, and then they rush to judgment, and and the assumption that because we're saved, Dad, you know we do not or should not send so when we as centers win, we send. We demonstrate that we are centers, which doesn't make us guilty of of being hypocrites at all. that that makes us guilty of of of wrestling with the flesh and the process of sanctification. And again I'm going to quote Charleston a good bit tonight and Or whenever you listen to this. you know he says this quote with a blush. Each. One of us must confess that to some extent. Life is contradictory to our profession. We blush and we mourn over this, but I hope that there are some here who can say notwithstanding many infirmities with my whole heart. I have Stri at striven to run in in the ways of the Commandments. God and I have not intentionally spoken that with.
