"So. I'm not going to be talking about him behind his back here to defend that position and so much more for what many of you will probably sees a very uncomfortable conversation but I promise you it starts from a place of love. Please join me in welcoming Arnold back. To the PODCAST, Arnold thank you for joining me today. A. Man's so I guess I up. I'll just let you address that I clip that I played that really shook me to my core Do you still stand behind that and if so what's going on there? Well I see the masks. As a tool, a cessation of freedom like. People's like a slippery slope will you used the slippery slope? Well, a slippery slope isn't always a fallacy because one thing does sometimes lead to another and to another and. A gold star deadly to protect. You did lead to work hampered did lead to gas chamber. It started very small and There is even according to the World Health Organization. No. recognized. Science to support the claim that healthy people emphasize healthy people. Wearing masks stops the spread of the corona virus. And the World Health. Organization concedes that fact. So for me to be compelled under rule of law. To, put something on to my body. First of all violates life Fourth Amendment Rights and it is it is absolutely a cessation of freedom to test. How are we let ourselves go then not taking our freedoms from us we're willingly handing them over. So as far as the masks go and let's make that the first part of this. Conversation so Calm. There's so much here. So I want to address the CDC or the or the or the the W. H. O. N. masks, but also I can't just skip a by the sort of comparison you made to Nazi Germany I mean, do you not see that as antisemitic at all as far as comparing those two? Do you think it's? It's literally all you're saying is it to just about the comparison of government control? You're not you're not bringing in right in any way that it is I'm juxtaposing. The control, the government took over the Jews. With the government. The control, the government is taking over us. Now I'm simply juxtaposing the two I'm saying their government control lead invariably to absolutely terrible things and our government control invariably Willie to absolutely terrible things. Okay so I think the major difference here and I think most people would would probably acknowledge this is that. They were being. told to wear armbands and tattoos and rounded up simply based on their ethnicity. That is nothing like this because here they're saying that wearing a mask reduces the spread of a deadly disease, and so one has absolutely no good benefit at all. The other has a tremendous benefit showing that wearing a mat like if you go out in public, you have a seventeen percent chance of contracting the virus and if you wear a mask. Then, the the I think the the spreading. Reduces to about three percent because if you're wearing the mask and. You happen to have it even if you're symptomatic which means you would call yourself healthy then you could still spread it. So if you're wearing a mask, it stops you from spreading a virus that you don't know you have. So the the mask has been shown to have positive effects scientifically to stop people from spreading if they have the virus, but there's absolutely nothing scientific about Jews being inherently bad for Germany. That was just an ethnic cleansing and I don't think it's proper to compare the two. Well, I mean, I compared to on purpose because you know sometimes you need to be offensive to prove a point sometimes hyperbole is required. And to be fair, it is hyperbole a so I made a post on instagram saying that you. Have a better chance of winning the lottery walking struck by lightning than you do done the coronavirus, which is factually inaccurate but it is hyperbole to prove a point the point that you have a very small, almost miniscule chance of dying catching, but dying of the coronavirus. So Am I worried about people catching the coronavirus, not even a little bit because the fatality rate is so comically small. As to make us need to become infected because I don't know what you are. But when I was a child in primary school age we didn't have scenes for a great many viruses. So we have vaccines for now. For example chickenpox chicken pox really deadly at all but I'm going to compare the two in this regard because. When a friend of mine had chicken pox and I had not yet had them as there was not a vaccine. What happened you got sent to go play with that friend on purpose to intentionally get chicken pox and any other any one of these other viruses that there was no vaccine for you were you were intentionally by your parents sent to catch these viruses to become sick. Suffer through it and get well to become immune. That is even the CDC states. There are two ways to achieve her immunity. Vaccines. And infection and there is no vaccine for this. So the best way at this very moment to achieve the highest level of herd immunity is to infect the highest level of people. Okay but Arnold chicken pox wasn't really known for killing people right I I literally said that already. I'm saying that's the point here the death rate, the plenty of things that did measles killed plenty of people and we intentionally were told to go get measles. Measles is very deadly I mean not necessarily Renault. I. Would Venture to say justice deadly because the fatality rate for the Corona Virus is roughly point Oh two, percent point zero two. That's true. Hundreds of percents. That's not even one percent. That means if I get the corona virus, there is two one hundredths of a percent that I will die of it. And most people who are dying are dying of secondary causes like Emphysema, they're caused death would be emphysema or or COPD or heart disease. Or Drug Overdose And and here here is my main. My main. Problem with it is, is the corruption inherent in the system that it is simply trying to push up the death count. Because there was the I. Believe it was in Illinois. The director said that even if you died of some obvious, I can send you the video after the shell. Some obvious. Alternate means if you had corona virus in your system, your time of death, you count as a coronavirus desk which means in plain English. You could literally shoot me in the face I die of the bullet wounds to my head, and if I had corona virus in my system at my time of death, even though the bullet wound is what killed me. I would be listed as a corona virus def. Yeah. Okay. So that's incorrect. I, mean you're right that that's what they said. Well, no I know that's what that person said. They are wrong and I think what what I keep finding when I when I watch her videos right here you sort of. Recap things it's it just seems to me Arnold that you're taking off the raw video I know I know I know you have that raw video but that doesn't necessarily mean that's the way it's operating today right? Like for example, someone that you can say someone of you know someone will get the black lives matter later but like because someone. In black lives matter says when I say abolish police I mean abolished police and then conservatives will then take that and say black lives matter wants there to be no police. So they want you to be raped and it's just an overall straw man I mean that's just not only. If you if you were. Okay? Cool. So if you were to be shot in the head and you happen to have covid. It would not be counted as a covert death. You would be county. Official it would okay what they were wrong. That's just not was happening. Well, because George George Floyd George Floyd Exit George Floyd was not counted as Cova Death Right because floyd was a very high profile thing into count him as a covert death would be plainly obvious.

"One thing about having. . A show for so long. . As I'm able to build relationships with people. . And many of you who've been along the journey with me for so many years know that we love going back and checking up on folks who have been on the show and I would say there's probably out of all the shows we've had this episode I think four, , hundred, , seventy, , five. . Holy. . Moly. . We can really close a five hundred episodes and now that I'm doing two week at least for the time, , it's getting there faster. . And over ten years out of all that time in all those hours, , they're probably still only. . Somewhere between five and ten guests that stand out as just the fans absolute favourite like the people that you just absolutely fall in love with. . John. . Christie, , was one of those <hes> for sure <hes>. . Kathy Taylor has been one of those for sure <hes> the youth pastor John, , Gerry has been one of those for sure and I can't name them all I. . Don't have a top ten list in my opinion necessarily but the ones I just hear the most from the ones that the listeners really just sort of latch onto in an email me on a regular basis and go hey man, , do you have an update on this person? ? How were they doing or what's going on with this person? ? Will. . Today's guest is absolutely in that list. . He's he's one of these guests who came on. . And at first angered some people right but. . At the same time just started to sort of stroke the heartstrings of so many listeners wanted to reach out to him and make sure he was okay and <hes>. . Sometimes they did it through me sometimes, , they may have found on social media I don't know, , but it was a very it was it was a loving moment and I even went on a comedy tour. . And I was I was doing comedy in Arizona, , and this was like last year brought me some time in summer. . And a listener came up to me after a comedy show and was like man. . That episode just changed my perspective on so much I need to know an update. How's . he doing? ? And the reason it was so impactful because he first came on the show and I think the title of the show was ex gay Christian versus David Small. . And he sort of gave the story of how he was no longer gay. . He prayed about it God took the urges away and then he was on arguing the Christian. . Position. . And I just kept thinking was Man. . I really hope you know that when the urges do come back or or whatever goes away that that he remembers this conversation and sure enough he did and six months later he came back on the show to inform us that when he did have the urge again and Saul Saul someone that we thought was really attractive. . His first two words were damaged David and we had a huge laugh about that and I really connected with this guy, , and then he sort of came around to say you know what <hes> really a choice. . It's a part of who I am and he began challenging religion and in posting differently, , and it was just an absolute transformation and I've really valued our friendship. . <hes> and then he got really popular on Tiktok, and , I mean well over two hundred thousand followers on Tiktok as instagram started to grow as well and I was really proud of him. . He was taking stances about homework and public schools and he was getting more and more passionate and I love watching his audience grow in watching his passion grow and I just I'm really fond of this guy think he's an absolutely wonderful person and I've seen him go through their struggle and I'm have been proud to call him a friend. . And so you can imagine. . My absolute dismay. . And heartbreak. . When I opened instagram. . And I see him post. . This. . I hear these left-wing authoritarian fascist say it's only a mask what you have to worry about. . You know they told the Jews the same thing it's only tattoo. . What you have to worry about. . It's only a gold star. . What do you have to worry about? ? It's only a work camp what do you have to worry about? ? It's only gas chamber what do you have to worry about? ? Make It make sense? ? Ouch. .

"And the reason he does, that is because God is setup as so powerful that he can do anything. Except forgive people just to forgive them. Nope, something's gotTa Die I. I need to see some blood sacrifice, a dog cat, the sheep Aram my son, whatever it takes, something better squeal in agony and blood better run down to redeem the earth before I can say I forgive you. The point is people with high morality can forgive you without sacrifice can forgive you without punishment. That's what it means to be. A humanist I thought that's what it meant to be a Christian. But the God that you worship. Doesn't have the morality to just forgive us. He has to instead say Nope, I'm GONNA put a rule in place that there has to be a blood sacrifice in I'm going to murder my son. And then take him back, but I better see him suffering blood run down the cross, and then they're gonNA. Think I did something amazing for them. When none of it makes any sense at all, or wasn't even remotely necessary, I could've just said I forgive you. and. Here's the thing David. Here's where we we have to come back to win it. Always we'll come back to. Is that faith. That's the difference between having faith and number two knowing that the Gospel is a mystery. We are few again again. We don't we. Who are we to question? God? I mean think about aw. The Queue of mad. When you're on a plane. In your fly on a plane, you look down to your city as your edgier going up in altitude. Do, you realize how small we are in comp- compared to the God of the universe. Well, you almost had me agree. We have raised the size of a Soda Pot man, and it's not. It's not up to us to just. Man I don't know. It sounds like when things don't make sense to you. You acknowledged that they don't make sense, and then you just give up and stop thinking about it. Oh. No, not. That's what faith sounds like tight along. You know to to to to know more bud. It's faith that pleases God without faith. No one can please God. That's what the Scripture says. In many of us are consume woodworks, and trying to be good, these as little human beings, but got say a faith is what pleases him when we trust him else's word. That's what bring Pisa's not knowing. You can go to any seminary in the United States in. Ask any. Any student. What is it that sort of brings you peace? What is it that brings you? Joy and comfort as you endure through this season of live, trying to trust God, you barely know and you, the more you know, the less you know and they'll tell you. It's not about it's about trusting said I'll just trusting believing what he said in his promises. That's what makes his promises so special. Well here's what I WANNA do. I WanNa, address your your trust. Okay and I'm going to challenge you on something. About, your trust! And I want you to think long and hard about that. I also WANNA. Know what is something in the Bible that you're uncomfortable with or that? You've always struggled with. I also want to know the your favorite chapter of your book. Like which one are you most proud of? Which one do you think is going to be the most impactful and I know? When we first started talking, you said you may not want to promote it on your on your show, because it's going to have a lot of converts. It's called.

"Or rarely even get a speeding ticket yet. Still Watch porn multiple times a week I. Mean it's such A. It's such an unscientific claim to just throw out one side of it and never actually study. Take if you'll let me explain when you done brother, go ahead and explain them. Okay, okay, David! So I want to ask you this. Do you believe our thoughts eventually become our actions as as someone thinks that they're hard, so they will be? No Okay. Everything from everything from a seed that's planted IT A. A, see when we plant a seed, it eventually ripens as a fruit and on a tree right. In. Your thoughts end up becoming your reality. So, for instance rape. It does not happen like suddenly like this is something that is happening over time, and it's happening whether or not you want to say it are believe it or not the. So basically, what for instance about when you're about to have consensual sex? Just happened without a forethought. To think about that right well, hold on, hold on, hold on. Okay, so so so so so. Yes things that we do often start as thoughts that is not the same thing as every single thought resulting in an action. Like and I'll give you an example this this podcast that I have the big name change David C smalley as opposed to dogma debate, young started as a thought, became a conversation with a couple of people I worked out. How was GonNa do it in now. It's reality Yeah Yeah where my where my desk is set up in the studio. How MIC is positioned? Literally all started as a thought, but I've also been really mad at someone and thought man if I received that dude I'm a knock his teeth out. And then I never do. I've been so angry in a moment. I thought Mark I. Just I WANNA. quit this job. I hate my boss in the night. Cool down, and I don't hate my boss and I. Don't quit my job. Not In every on every thought, not every thought becomes reality. Loved that, but here's what Jesus said. If you even thought about it in your heart. You've done it and that's the toxicity. The differ hold on twitter, and that's the toxicity of Christianity thought crimes. You should not be convicted of crimes. But it is you're? Like, of course we can't control a heart, we we. We were all born into iniquity. The Bible says we can't control. We're all. We're all guilty. But. Here's the cool thing. That's why we need a savior. The save us from from that sables from our own thoughts. Save us from our own attitudes. He's not. He's not saving us from our thoughts or from our attitudes. He's saving us from him. Okay, he saving us from his own torture chamber that he designed our. When he wrote this plan originally, so he could have just made us not exist. Now it see see. Here's the thing again. We suppress the truth. The truth is is that he sent his son Jesus, so we won't have to experience that, but we have to make a decision like in at the end of the day. We can't say God's putting. Lesson are sent off to a Chamber College Hill when we make the decision to not. One of in him it should be not a duty, but the lights had no that this. God loves you so much David. And then he loves those who are listening so much that that he sent his son in once a relationship, not religion, but actually wants to know them and be known. Have them known by him, so he can make others know him. You know like it's Sean. Yeah! Let let me let me pull this analogy to you. Real quick. Let's say let's say we're neighbors. And you borrow my lawnmower? Okay And use it in a week goes by, and you don't return it. And then another week goes by you. Don't return it and that I see you out there mowing your lawn again. You're still having brought. Milan more back and I start thinking all right. I'm being betrayed by my neighbor. Maybe I should go ask for it. Maybe there was a misunderstanding. Maybe this maybe this maybe that I'm like you know what he's being. He's being really a selfish and arrogant and I need to save him from this. And then I come over one day and knock on your door. I go hey, man. I know that you borrowed my. My law more. and. You're supposed to bring it back and didn't and you're like I'm sorry and I'm like well. Listen I've given you a gift. I killed my dog. For A shot at right in the head. And then I give you a bag with my dead dog in it and all you gotTa. Do is accept his gift. And then we can be friends again. I think you would call the police. I think you will. Here's the I think. I think that you think that I would have any. I know that's the Guy Right right? So, what did he sacrifice? Oh, he sacrificed at all, but he's alive. What did he sacrifice? Oh, he rose again. He added to defeat debt. E, don't send them. All God didn't give us his only son because he still has his son. Oh. He got now because at the end of the day. He has resurrection power. He defeated debt. That's the good news. No, No, no the Gospel right there but God knew he was going to defeat death, so he didn't give anything away to us. He just gave Jesus a bad weekend. The human camp. No now that's what was left to Rashawn what was the gift of? He knew he was gonNA. Resurrect what did. The give this God. Sacrificed. He laid it all down. which was this on Jesus? In, the in the gift for us is is him is a sign. But here had you wait a minute? No, no, when you give a gift to someone, they.

"Welcome to the show. Hopefully, you're well rested. You got lots of sleep. And you're ready to enjoy. A Nice conversation among people who disagree. <hes> my guest may not actually have that same courtesy or benefit. Because, he's literally on the other side of the world. <hes> he is joining me all the way from Mozambique. He is a missionary and because of the location and sensitivity of the environmental there. We're not going to be using his name today, so please join me in welcoming the missionary in Mozambique who will not be named. Thank you so much for joining me today. Man I appreciate you coming on the show. Thank you David. Appreciate you taking the time to to let me call in and have conversation with you. Hey, this is going to be interesting man, I mean. I. Don't know that I've ever spoken with anyone in Mozambique before. So talk to me, talk to me. The most Americans don't couldn't find it on now, so. Right, so so so do me a favor. Let's talk a little bit about. <hes> first of all why you're over there? What's going on and sort of the temperature of the environment? Like what's happening there to make you not really want to <hes> reveal your identity today. Yeah, so we rea- my family. I we're missionaries is in northern Mozambique <hes> been here several years now <hes> and our our goal is to work alongside <hes>. The established churches that are here. To help train up leaders, and then send them out to begin new work in in. Places where there are not yet searches, and not yet believers and so. <hes> I mean that's in in broad terms that that's what we're doing year. That takes all different kinds of forms over here from teaching English to teaching farming techniques to. Doing Bible Studies. All kinds of things so that's basically what my family. And I are doing over here. Things are a little tricky right now. There is some unrest <hes> do do some religious extremism. That's happening north of us in in. From where we are living and It has gotten worse and worse over the last two years or so. Things are getting more violence. The refugee problem is just growing I in fact today. I was at a meeting. For several hours talking to. Not just not just <hes> other missionaries, but other relief groups that are here trying to manage the flood of refugees that are coming into our town. We live in a town of about one hundred and twenty, thousand on the estimates are that there are now thirty to forty thousand refugees that have. Over the last. Nine months flooded our town. And then they're not just our town and other places, and so just stall the challenge to come with that people that don't have anything you know they're. They left in the middle of the night. They hid out in the Bush for. Hours, and hours <hes> just to keep their family safe, and then they. Somehow made their way down to where we're at, and so they don't have anything and so just trying to figure out what what what you weighed Duda alongside these people that have really watson a lot of trauma and suffering so so what? Type of religious extremism is, are they? They Muslims, are they. Somehow anti-christian, or what's going on now it's it's I mean they. They close ties to isis and so that's when they started. Publicly declaring that it raises a lot of eyebrows <hes>, but the other challenge. Here's the the government whether or not they're able to. To. Handle the issue <hes> from a military standpoint from a development standpoint <hes>, and so there are challenges. Not just with the group, but then in come the government <unk> inability to respond to it, and so, but you know they it's. Nobody really knows exactly what's at the bottom of it? Whether truly is religious extremism. In, some people speculate that it's just it's a response to extreme poverty and lack of opportunity that people are are turning to <hes> the violence in a way to get what they want quickly <hes>. There there is a huge gas project that is is happening up here in in so people you're there. Some conspiracy theories about how that HAL unrest. Can benefit certain players within that that. That project so anyway. There's A. On the surface it. Appears to, be, religious. Religious driven! But. Nobody really knows at this point so.

"On hold on one second. I'm going to tell you. I have got three herniated disc in my back, okay? Most people. Would my medical condition are? fricken on disability and stuff and I'm sixty four years old on top of that and I'm still working. Sixty plus hours a week. I that that's not me. That's not me that ain't by the grace of God. People not that is you know that is you? That is definitely you know that's the. Thing. I mean think about this for a second. There are tons of people who are suffering who are starving to death. A one who are awful, there's probably a building collapsed right now that we won't hear about until tomorrow on the news somewhere in Indonesia, and there's a family trapped under that those those those broken cinderblocks, calling out for help and nobody strong enough to move the blocks. Your God is watching and not moving those blocks, but he's super concerned about your herniated discs. or That doesn't jive. Right! It does not judge. So probably telling people to go move the brick and people aren't willing me. He can move them without people if he's relying on the worst tool us that he's ever created I. Don't think that's a very smart solution. Yeah so so what I want to move into now is how I actually believe that not only as religion irrelevant, because I think you would be a wonderful person with or without it. I think it's actually hurtful. Because of something that you said it's GonNa go. which was a bunch of sins? Now you feel like some of your behaviors have been considered sins, and I also want to address something you said in your email, which was that? You don't know how people can have hope. Without God. And so, that's what we're going to do on the Patriot. Version of this show. The conversation continues at Patriotair Dot Com. Slash David C smalley. WE'RE GONNA get into sin. We're GONNA get into what it's like to live without a god, and how people can have hope in their lives without having a religious belief. We'll see you at patriotair dot com slash David.

"Lot of times people will get into discussions with me on twitter and they're like. Put me on your show and I'm like I would love to you. Please fill out the form on the website and for some reason. That responds really offends people and don't know why I. If you get to the form and you go through it. You'll see what I mean, and it just saves so much energy. It gives you an opportunity to say what you most disagree with now. What form on the Internet today is asking you questions like that worldview? Do you disagree with? How can people contact you? What's your core message that you WANNA get across? And this isn't by the way just for me to see your views. It also helps you as the guest formulate and be more direct and what you want to get across because if you don't who you just come on, and we start talking. I may start off assuming that you're a younger creationist. And then we spent twelve minutes talking past each other. Then you go, wait a minute. No I acknowledge evolution. What are you talking about? So we ask questions like that about the age of the earth went ahead, and through one in about the earth, the earth and its shape is it spherical so as I'm going through my recent ones and reaching out and scheduling, and by the way. For everyone out there It looks like I'm going to be running at a pace of about two episodes per week in the coming weeks, because all of my Fridays where I normally record got booked up all the way through mid August so I started also scheduling. Tuesday's so I'm GONNA probably more than likely looks like the new schedules going to be releases on Wednesday and Saturday and if you're on Patriot, you might get them a day early. If the show is ready early, so that's just another incentive to go out and sign up and support the show at Patriotair Dot com slash David C smalley. but yeah this this this guest today. I'm looking at her at her email form, and it just says it says she's a believer. She's a Christian also no denomination well. That helps right there, right? Is Three point eight billion years old. Awesome. That saves us a lot of time politics I give people an option to say. Do you WanNa talk about politics or do not want to? She doesn't want the conversation to be about. That I. can skip right past that. So, far I'm reading this form going. Where did this perfect guest come from? This is amazing, same sex marriage. It's not it's not in her repertoire. Even argue about it. It doesn't matter you know what she cares about her personal experience with God, and how cutting God out of life she sees as a bad thing and i. want everyone to know this last piece. She says the. She wants other people. To share in the love of God. Now, my listeners who listen to me on a regular basis, no! That I also start my position of the conversation from a point of love so. Of what happens throughout this episode? You know that we both deeply care about humanity and each other. Even though we've never met and that's the way every conversation like this should start. Just know that moving forward. Please join me in welcoming deb ran..

"Okay. Wow, that's a lot. Yet. Have a lot of that stuff I've heard before, and like I've looked at that stuff you know and so I I'll say there's a lot of things in the Bible like that that I've had questions gone. That just doesn't sit with me. Right or whatever and so I look into that like those things I'm look for answers for that stuff, and and some stuff like I've looked at and gone. Okay like I get this. It makes sense and some of that stuff like I forget from time to Time I. Don't always remember everything that I've looked back up starting to walk. but There's a lot of stuff where I think we're seeing different context on late. When I look at you know where you're talking about God being. You know sorry about making man you know before the flood I don't see him. Saying I made a mistake I see him as as somebody who's having a motion in somebody's. He's grieved over where they got and. But, didn't he know that was going to happen though? Are Absolutely Yeah I. Believe he did so then why would he grieve over something he knew was coming and created himself because it was a part of his plan already. So he knew he was going to happen okay. Yeah so I I. Look at that and I go God wanted us and so when he created us, you know he knew what was GonNa Happen he knew you know I was going to be where I'm at in my life, and you were going to be year at your life, and and you know he knows. Who isn't isn't GonNa? Follow him and. He knew that people were going to be at that state at that point You know at that point in in in Genesis. But one of the things that I believe God is looking for is not for us to be. forced to choose them. I believe he wanted us to have have a choice to love and more to not love him to want him in her life or not one of them in our life. That's why. Adam and Eve had that that tree to begin with they. Had you know one thing God? Said you, can you know? One rule I'm giving you one rule you know. He wanted them to have have the choice. and so you know if he took away our choice You know I don't think. He wanted. He wanted us to have the choice. You know, and the thing is one of the things that I've been thinking about lately is You know you look at I, look at someone like Judas Iscariot. Who you know I if I believe the Bible I believe the Bible True and look at Judas. Evidence, he saw these miracles Jesus did I. Mean One of the things for me that I look at and go. Wow, amongst miracles You know if you're rating miracles, hero people who were made so imagine you're Jimmy grew up You know your whole life growing up your uncle Jimmy didn't have as his leg because he lost it and war and you go to Jesus and Jesus field the guy that was maimed and it's Legros backout I mean I. Look at Judas in any saw stuff like that and so. You know I'm going. There was a in these people I think people had evidence and rejected it, but. There's other stuff like look at Jackson's his daughter. That wasn't something where I think God. It I don't think God was was approving of it. I think he made a rash foolish up pledge, and I don't think guide. gave jets victory because of what Jeff said are dead I think God was already going to give him victory but they just followed through with something that God doesn't saying. Okay now you. You need to give me your daughter. I think they were they were they were they were being idiotic. You know and I think there's so many things like that where. You know when we're looking at it I. I wonder this stuff. okay so. And I go, I'm just seeing different stuff than you are, and when I look at the stuff I'm going. I can you know just see different perspectives on it and I see? You Know I. I've looked for answers in this stuff and Milwaukee without found it and their stuff I still you know I haven't I still don't get. Okay so let's. Let's do this, so I'm sorry this okay I. Want to get into that I. WanNa know. Because you've mentioned a few times. What are some of the things that you've struggled with? Don't don't answer now, but and you can think about it for a moment as I play this other clip, but I do want to know. What are some things that you've. That! You've struggled with some things that you wish you could just take out of the Bible or that. You wish weren't in there. Some of the things that you struggle to put the pieces together. A lot of believers won't answer those types of questions that I know you will. You're the type of guy that will be like Oh. This is confusing to me and I. Don't understand this. And why is this in there? So I WANNA. Get into that and I wanNA talk about that as we get into the whole idea of repenting and sin in the Patriot version of of the extended version of the show at Patriots, dot com slash David C smalley, but before we get out of here, I want to play this clip. To let everybody know what we're going to be talking about. Because this is, take talk, you did about repenting and sin. CanNot Save. She's in twenty, four, forty, seven and Peter next to made it crystal-clear that were to be forgiven for your sins..

"The fourth listener always wants to know what podcast I. Listen to one for sure that always makes the cut the Jordan Harbinger show. A lot of people. Don't know this, but I'm actually friends with Jordan. He's here with me right now, Jordan. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me on, you know I'm from Texas. I live in La now, but I'm from Texas originally. Mark Cuban is like our Captain America. In The Dallas area the owner of the Mavericks the the richest guy on shark tank. You recently had him on your show. How they go, I did mark. It was interesting that look. Mark Cuban is a bad ass. Dude and I told him to look into running for president. I'm not the first person to tell him that. But the advice, that mark is giving his CEOS and founders because he's, he's invested at over two hundred companies, and so I said, what are you telling? All of your founders? All your CEO's right now. We've got angry uncertain unprecedented times. What are you telling? Everyone also I asked what he sees in the future. Like what jobs are GONNA exist in five years. We've got AI. We've got blockchain. We've got all this uncertainty. What jobs what fields are upcoming in the not so distant future I mean the the whole economy's changed as you know in the last few months, it's only gonNA. Change even more. We're going to see a lot of disruption and I'm always interested in how America can beat China in business because they're investing at ton robotics and AI and things like that, and what what do we need to do not just to catch up, but to take take our competitive advantage in and get it back, and that to me was imported and of course I ask. Ask him how he keeps up with all these trends, because he knows a lot about everything from robotics to is so he's just constantly studying. And I asked him what his how he decides to pick an area of focus and what he does to prep for that because he's putting his money where his mouth is, you don't WanNa. Give somebody you know five million dollars and find out what they were talking out of there. You know what you gotta do. Your research and I asked them how I can't imagine you know I there was a time. When my organization, we had forty volunteers across the country, doing research and editing and doing memes and all sorts of different stuff, because people were loving the show, forty individual human beings, and that was so much to manage that it was just it was just it was stressful. Right and a Lotta Times I found myself as like sort of being an it manager or being a marketing manager, and worrying about who's doing what and and and delegating tasks as opposed to. Running my own business were being a content creator I can't imagine two hundred companies. You're not even talking about people with two hundred companies that's thousands and thousands of people. He's gotta be so disconnected from that so I would love to know. Did you guys get into how involved? He is in those companies at all? I talked about a talked with him about that actually off line because I didn't bring it up in the show I burn up later and it varies, but I know a few people who's who have Cuban as an investor, and there are some people that say like yeah. We talked to him pretty regularly. When when the ISH hits, the fan and there are other people that. That I know, they're like yeah, once every three months. He just kind of checks in, or if I'm about to make a big decision, all kind of shoot him a text message and run it by him, and he shoots it back I. Think he's kind of quick one off advice and then cash infusion, and then probably introductions when needed when you're about to get a quiet. He's got. Great he's got to figure it out. Though imagine two hundred businesses. You'll only have to hit a couple of winners to pay for all the rest and the rest of it is gravy..

"For to feed his family. Maybe his his fat wasn't rendered, or maybe his water wasn't drinkable, and he needed to boil it in order to make it safe for his family. There's no way we could partially what was going on but to say that he deserved death because he was picking up sticks on the Sabbath. Is just extreme. We don't even know what he was doing it for, and it sounds to me like Jesus would be on my side in this conversation and say let the man pick up. Sticks were his family. Do you not save your ox? Did I not he'll. This man's hand let demand pickup sticks for his family. It seems that being good as is more important than following an arbitrary rule. Again if you look up the that particular desert, the temperatures both daytime and night-time, they don't get bad, but I hear you on that I understand what you're saying about. Preparing Food and whatnot, but you gotta understand. You're coming from the perspective. The God is bad. You're looking for evidence I. think without meaning. Do necessarily that that to to support this point that you're making when in reality if if there was a need that God would have allowed him to do it if there was evil in art than than. Yes, he's going to punish him for it. I think that there's. were, imagining him to be your suming him to be worse than you and I and saying no. I wouldn't do that so therefore. I just can't understand why this God. Would you know it's to end on this? We're GONNA. End This and then move into the Patriots version, but I think that. It's just the opposite actually. When I started looking into this, I was a believer. and. I wanted to bring more people to God. I saw a lot of Christians. I wasn't even aware that atheists existed. I saw a lot of Christians when I was a teenager, arguing with each other, not understanding portions of the Bible, and I thought I'm GonNa read it. I'M GONNA. Pray about it I'm going to talk with theologians and professors and preachers and pastors of different denominations, and I'm going to hammer out some of these details and solve these problems. Clearly, there is a truth out there. And I started reading. With the idea of proving that God is good. Improving the individual aspects of the Bible. Yet. I kept finding things like this. Where Jesus would be okay with someone doing good on the Sabbath and God had a man killed for picking up sticks I saw where God would would say that you could sell your daughter's into slavery. And that would that worried me. Remember the first time I read these things. I was a fool on believer who had been saved who had been baptized in who was terrified that he didn't know enough about it to go. Knock on doors and save souls so I went reading because I knew my preacher was going to send me out To to win souls and I didn't I felt like I'd been given the uniform and pushed out on the field and I knew none of plays. And so I was educating myself so that I can help people and time after time after time I found God acting in a way, that made me very uncomfortable and I would write a note. Here's a problem of gotta fix that. I would write another note. Here's a problem fix and when I ended my fourteen year journey I was an atheist, because I could no longer defend this guy so no. I am not looking for things that are bad about God. I'm repeating things to you. That made me stop believing. He was good in the first place. Please understand that's the difference between us. That's cool. I appreciate where you're coming from. Can I mention one more thing sure. The in Genesis Fifteen. Again talking about Whether a whole people, groups should be wiped out for example. Just give this as one example because I think it helps people to understand that there's whole different perspective on any of those stories. you know God told Abraham what he was going to do? He said basically you know four hundred years. Egypt and you know. Blah Blah Blah because the cop of the nicotine of the Ameri does not yet fall, and I think that's one of the keystones of of the Bible that while there's any possible way to reach a people, group or individual. Individual. He's going to do it, but when there comes a point when he there's nothing more that he can do to to reach that people group. Were that person. Then you know he's. It's just they're gonNA infect people more than they're like said more than they're going to help, but even when he's done that in a sign of people group to death. Rahab for example. If there's anybody anybody that turns to God. They're always given that Opportunity Ruth I'm about as she shouldn't have been allowed into the sanctuary to the into the into the fellowship of God, but anybody that turns to God even from People Group. That's. Labeled that they're allowed because he's, he's searched and constantly and Sodom Gomorrah rather than being sample of I mean the God's love all the way through that. Human Hearts asking what it did when Abraham asked, will you wouldn't you wouldn't destroy a? I mean you wouldn't destroy. A city of there was fifty. What about forty? What about thirty? That's the question on every humans Har- ultimately, even if they don't know, they're asking it in God answers that question, ultimately by dragging four pathetic Christians out of the the town by their hand. There were so pathetic and faith that that's why he offered up as his daughter's number. One angels. They don't have body parts. He didn't know they were angels at that point so. His faith is so weak at that point. He's trying to protect those people he's I would not hold him up as a great Christian, but God drags the four them out in even He's lot is so afraid that he can't go up into the mountain. He Begs God to save that. One City God saves an entire cities small one, but saves. It temporarily destroys later because of again the week faith of a week pathetic Christian, so in my opinion, all those stories when properly understood, reveal a patient, relentless unbelievable God when we don't deserve it over and over again I I'm going to pose the same question to you on the other side of this, so don't answer yet, but you just said the term again there's nothing he can do. It certainly sounds like you're saying that. God has his hands tied and can't make these people good. And with lot know you called him a pathetic Christian. he's trying to save people. He gave his daughters to be raped by a mob. In I'm. I just can't wrap my head around. That serving God, and that's not just. I wouldn't say a pathetic Christian that is just downright evil I think so what I WanNa do is is have you address? why God can't just make them good. That's that's the thing I want you to address because to me, it seems much easier to make people better if have the power to do so rather than to wipe them out whether it's in exodus, killing the firstborn of all the people of the famous people, or or wiping out the Malachi or or killing the media nights, or whatever's going on, I don't understand. I, don't understand this. This concept that God can't just make the people good if the goal is to make them good. Why can't he just make them? And we'll get more into that in probably end up touching on the problem of evil. Why bad things happen because that's where this conversation tends to go, but we're GONNA do that as the conversation continues at Patriot, dot com slash David C smalley before we go.

"That intro. I WANNA listen. I don't know about you. I WanNa hear what's going on. This. Better, be good that announce a really hype. This guy up. Welcome to the show. I have dealt with a lot of individual biblical issues on this podcast. Way Back to the early early days. Eight years ago nine years ago, I created a segment called Atheist Bible study. And we would sit around with our bibles. Sometimes we would get into one specific story and talk about it. Sometimes we have Christian studio to give their interpretation of it a lot of times. We were just being. DOPES and and and. Making Fun of the analogies but overall. It was kind of a learning experience, right? We were trying to dive into it, and then it sort of evolved into. this cool segment when Donovan was on still one of my favorite people of all time, and yes, we're still in touch. He's a great guy. I would civil Donovan in Donovan would pull out his Bible and he would have. Let's say new English translation. And I would have the new world translation for the shift from the Jehovah's Witnesses, and then someone else have King James and then. Four or five of US would sit around and and read different. You know we would pick one Bible verse in read it and see how different it was from version to version and one thing that had us do is go. When someone says the word of God. I won't believers to understand when when we hear the word of God which which one you know, that's part of the confusing thing. We all of us that were sitting around. We reformed Christians. And we were just confused by the word and the interpretation, and in some some I wanNA bring the segment back when when I get back to having people in Studio, and we get back down to star Burns and in Burbank and we get back in person I wanNA. Sit some people around Christians, atheists, or whoever wants to do it and sit around with different versions of the Bible and break down the scriptures, because there are some things that some verses that are a little uncomfortable are just not in Jehovah's Witness version. and they're just. They're verses that are just not there, and it makes you wonder and when I had pastor Greg Lacan. To address his challenge. As, he held up the Bible and said I think he rattled off like this is seven, hundred, eighty, five, thousand, two, hundred, ninety one words, and every single one of them is the word of God and he went into his whole spiel. The first question I had for him was. Because you're version has seven hundred thousand, but this one has seven, hundred, ninety, three thousand. This'll has eight, hundred, forty, one thousand. This one has six, hundred, fifty, six, thousand and. What what are you talking about? Which which version which which era which translation? He happened to be an original King James. Some people are new King James. some people believe that the further on we get technology, the better we can translate others. Look at it like the older the better because it's closest to the original son say well, we have more words in the English language than the previous, and now you understand why so many people who read the Bible stop believing the Bible or at the very least stop trusting it. Today's show is really about that. It's about a story in the Bible that I've really never addressed on this podcast so. You may be thinking. Yeah, this is a this is a clear classic Dogma debate. That's what this show is going to be a classic example of what I started doing, and I get to go back to this. Because I've never covered David and Goliath I, just never have, and for many years I. Always as an atheist assumed it was just false, it was just a fake, just a story of a giant, and that's it. And then you start to dig around in little and like with a lot of things. There are Christian youtubers Christian bloggers. Who claimed to have scientific evidence of the existence of Goliath, and and his his hometown and proof that the giants lived in this area, and then you see disagreement among Christians about how tall Goliath was about how heavy his armor was about how big the spear was! Seen this sort of discounted as something that didn't really matter, because it doesn't really talk to the resurrection of Jesus or the existence, of God, it's just a story that even if it were true, it doesn't really affect rather or not. God exists right. and there's some background. We're going to get into that, but I you guys know how go hunting on Tiktok for my next Christian guests, and I really I just spent so much time on the at because I, love it. Follow me there David Z. Smalley. And I came across What just snapped onto my Tiktok feed as a guy, a gigantic spear? And it's called the spear of Goliath, and you know. I had to watch this I mean who dives into Christian content more than yours truly. And as man's holding this and so I watched the rest of it and I wanNA play. This audio for you now you can go find him on tiktok yourself. the name on Tiktok is lost. World Museum Lost World Museum. No spaces are underscores. You're going to be able to see this video. It's called the legendary spear of Goliath and I WANNA play the audio for you right now. The video that I came across. That made me reach out to this guy and say hey. Come on the show.

"In the back of our minds, you may know that everybody matters, but right now the black house on fire so when they make a claim that they are in crisis, and the fire truck comes down to focus on them. Let's help put the fire out. Let stand there and hug them. Let's validate them. Let's stand arm in arm while they Saab and cry about their loss of their photos. Not Tell them that are pictures are just as important as theirs, because while it may be true, it's missing the point of the crisis. Please tell me you understand that. No. I agree with you David I. Think you were talking about a point of agreement trying to find it I. Think we just found it? Awesome, so my point to you is when when people are out protesting and they're saying black lives matter. The message of all lives matter. Feels like we're being ignored and we're not being validated and that it feels like it's an argument against our our our cry for help. That's that's the. I don't want to speak for the black community, but I've been to enough of these protests and had an folks on my show to understand. That's the core of the message were in crisis are houses on fire right? That's all I. WanNa. Say so all lives. Matter does hurt things because it's missing the point, even though it may technically be true. well I. I guess I have a question for you. Is is the responsibility of the same on both sides in other words do both sides in a situation haven't equal responsibility to try to hear and try to understand the point of view and the emotions of the other party, or does only one party have that responsibility? Well That's a really interesting question. It's a really good one I think. For the most part in a relationship situation, overall both people have responsibility. But. If one person is going into crisis. If, one person is depressed or suicidal or over the top angry. The person who is not in crisis. I believe has an obligation to step up and And take on some responsibility out of love for that other human being in crisis. And and and you would say that that goes both ways. During crisis, yes! Okay then we have another Dave. We have another point of agreement. This is turning into a Koumba conversation. Okay, I I feel like you're insinuating something that maybe I'm not understanding, so tell me what your point is on the on the on the compassion, going both ways. We'll know I agree if you've got somebody that's hurting somebody that's in trouble. You WanNa go to their side. You want understand them. You want to help them, and if you believe that it goes both ways than were on the same page. Okay cool so in a situation like for example I I, hate to just make it personal, but marriage counseling is a good way to look at at relations with other people, so if your wife just lost a family member, someone in her family died. She's under a lot of pressure under a lot of stress. She's got a job interview coming up. She's freaking out about that. The washer broke down and she had to wash her clothes for the job interview and she's okay. She's stressed. She's crying. You Walk in the room and she snaps you. And scream something you're yells at you in that in that one moment she's she's wrong for yelling at you. Right it's not appropriate. But because you don't have all of the stress on you. You love her, and so the point is to go. She's hurting. And to offer validation and see how you can help solve the problem rather than just going. You screamed something at me and then call her name and yell back at her because she unfairly attacked you right? Yeah, technically I guess you can say you guild at me. I and we could be in fifth grade, or we can have adult emotional intelligence and say she's hurting, so she screamed at me. She probably wouldn't have done under normal circumstances right so. Am and I agree with you David and I think about how the people that have had their businesses destroyed. You have white business owners that have had their businesses destroyed, and you have black business owners that have had their businesses destroyed and I frankly in many of these cases. I feel more pain for the black. Business owner because he's worked his whole life. To put the scratch together to build that business, and then these writers come along some of them of his own ethnic background, and they destroy his business. I've got tremendous compassion breaks my heart when I see these guys being interviewed tears in their eyes, I spent my whole life. My whole life savings everything I own. Is In this business and now it's destroyed. I feel tremendous. Compassion for him and I think we ought to have the same compassion regardless of the ethnic background of the guy who does that and whose business is destroyed I believe we should have the same compassion for a white business owner whose business has been destroyed by rioters as we do for a black business owner, whose business has been destroyed, and I think we both agree on that yet, Fischer. For sure. Yeah, we can move into that portion of it now. I think we have a pretty good understanding. I think that. One..

"It's not a calm conversation like this. Because the emotions are running so high and I understand why. But When people say all lives, matter and protesters are upset by that. They're not upset because the person is wrong. They're upset because the person is missing the point so back on my analogy of your house, being on fire in the neighborhood. If the police, the fire department comes down the street and putting your fire out. Imagine me screaming at the at the Fire Department. My house matters to. Right. Wouldn't you say in that moment? while both of our homes are equally important that me yelling for my front yard that my house is just as important as yours would be. noncompassionate would be missing. The point of your despair in would be drawing attention away. From your, crisis. Well I could see that one, but that's not what I'm saying. That's not what the people that I know in love or saying they're not saying that you know you can have a situation where somebody can say something, and it can be genuine and can be authentic level of concern. For. All lives no matter what their color or creed or background, and it's genuine. It's Authentic SA- genuine concern there. It's not just a slogan. You truly believe that everybody has been made in the image of God and therefore every single life is of infant worth God. The other stuff is just incidentally the fact that they are human beings that are made in the image of God. and. Somebody could say that they can mean that. They can be absolutely sincere about that. That black houses black lives matter to me just as much as white lives and white houses, and you can mean APP and offensively genuinely be true, but other people may not be willing to accept that. What will? What I said though Brian because it misses the point of the crisis. I'm not look. I'M NOT GONNA. Argue with you that that that other people's lives are important in and I've never heard never once. Have I heard any protest or any Hashtag any activist on twitter? Say That white people do not matter ever. It's it's the the argument is the argument is that the racial disparity in our country has disproportionately affected African Americans and native Americans by the way, and it's a it's a moment that we all need to rise up together and say this particular population should not be treated so badly, and they're having a moment of crisis, and we can either stand with them as allies and say. Let's treat everybody respectfully in equally in in your case, because they are made in the image of God. Because you have a Christian viewpoint for me, it's from a humanist standpoint without religion I. Still think there live is just as important as mine, and so we can either stand with them as as as white people. Or we can scream that our houses just important, even though it's not on fire. And I think screaming that all lives matter were saying all lives. Matter is tone deaf. tone-deaf means it may be technically true, but you're missing the tone of the issue Abba David what you're doing, is you're you're making up your own interpretation and your own slant? On what I'm saying and that's unjust. That's no way to treat somebody else. That's May in the of. No I'm so you're if if you refuse to accept that guy's insistence and that guy's information that all lives matter to him that black lives matter to him just as much as white lives matter to him, and he genuinely means that and you're not willing to accept that. Then you're the ones that's being unjust. 'cause you're treating him differently well because of his rice. Well I think no. No, because of his race I, I've had I've had conversations with African Americans who are conservative Christians who have said all lives matter and it. It makes my skin crawl. I don't disagree with someone because of their race I think. It comes down to. Ingredient in basic counseling in basic counseling Brian. Is Let's say, marriage, counseling or basic conflict resolution. We learned validate right. If you're in a relationship and your wife says you know the way you talk to me today, really upset me and I'm so angry rather than you immediately going into defense mode, and saying I didn't say what you think you misunderstood. The first step is to validate. To show her that her feelings matter she's important and that you understand he's hurting. That's step one. So, in invalidating someone else's feelings. You're basically just saying I. understand that you're hurt. And then you move into the fact portion right then you say things like I'm sorry that upset you. I didn't intend to create that problem. What I said was this and then that point that person feels validated. They feel heard. They feel that you have compassion for them. And then they can listen and have a conversation with you, but if your wife tells you, she's upset with you and you immediately say that's not what I said and accused her of misunderstanding. That's never going to go well right, so imagine a situation where? A woman comes to me and says. I was sexually assaulted. By this by this guy over here, I was sexually assaulted and. She says I was assaulted. I was attacked. And She's like you know there's a real problem in this country of men groping women and sexually assaulting women. In that moment, my first response to her if it is. Hey not, all men attack women. That's just being in defense mode. That's missing the point that is being tone deaf right so if she she had a personal problem. She is noticing a pattern in her life. If I just respond with a factual statement that not all men are rapists. That's missing the point. Even though it's true, it's not being compassionate. It's not listening, and it's not understanding that other person so what we're doing by saying black lives, matter were validating their crisis mode. We're acknowledging that their houses on fire were standing with them to say..

"Back to the show, Brian. It's good to be with you. Good to be back with. WHO. Me and I'm telling you. I have this this this issue? That's going on right now. The protests. The. Stance on police. Youth think you have. A basis for disagreement in a lot of people listening to this show because of the folks I have on and those types of conversations, but. I'm telling you people agree on one thing, and then you have something like this. Come up and you'll see people. Have Been, ride or die fans of the show for years. If I say one thing that they disagree with in this emotional heightened state boy, they will flip and turn and it. It's it's volatile right now. In social media is a It's kind of A A place where all a lot of that is collecting, and so my first question to you other than how you ben is. Have you noticed that? Are you noticing more backlash? Are you noticing some of your fans Kinda? Come at you in a way. You didn't really expect over over all of the stuff. Where all haven't seen a lot of that with my particular audience, but I've sure seen. A lot of that in the public conversation I'm GonNa change like tensions are running. A more higher than I. Seen in quite a while I'm sure as to the circumstances surrounding. The death of George Floyd, but temperatures are really high right now on conversations. Exchanges where people can. Exchange valid launch view. Those are few and far between right now. Yet and that's what I'm hoping with this show. That's you know There will definitely still be dogma debates going on, but there are so many other issues that people sort of bring that same talent to the table with of. One hundred percent right and if you're wrong, you're not just an incorrect person. I can respect I have to plow over you and destroy you and a lot of times. People just talk past each other you know people will hold up a sign and say black lives, matter and. Protesters with trump flags will scream blue lives matter. Well Yeah I think. It's still obvious that that we don't want cops to die right. I think it's still obvious that blue lives do matter in people scream out. All lives matter. The response is Duh. I mean that's that's not the point of black lives, matter and I think it gets lost in. You know people with a message that are protesting are trying the have to be quick and concise. It's Hashtags at signs. It's chance it's. It's they've got be. They've got to operate in soundbites. And a lot of there's no room for nuance on on a on a protest sign. So. The I the the basic concept behind black lives matter. is since the inception of the country. White lives have mattered. COPS have mattered. A lot of people have mattered, and it feels like. With the statistics with the police brutality, however you WanNa, word it. It feels like black lives have not mattered as much. So when people say black lives matter, they are not saying only black lives matter they are saying black lives matter too and. We want the world to acknowledge that, but then a lot of times that gets missed misconstrued as an offence on police. Right so I, wanted to give you an opportunity I. Don't know if you've ever heard it broken down like that, but I want to give you an opportunity to respond to your views on that specifically on black lives matter in their message. Well I saw conversation the other day. What really a conversation kind of a shouting match? For somebody had a an all lives matter expression on a placard. Something like that. and. He was jumped by somebody from the black lives. Matter Movement I think for some of the similar reasons that you're talking about David. But if you stop and think about that if your. View is that all lives matter which is my view, which is a biblical view, the all lives matter every human being has created in the image of God and therefore is infinite worth. Than what that means Masive lives matter? Then that means that black lives matter. As well as white lives, all lives matter than black lives are included in have. Black lives matter, so that's kind of a. that's kind of the way I come at this night. I understand and on paper? All of that makes sense. I think the problem is I think we would both agree that if you want. I live in the same neighborhood. Both of our houses matter. Our neighbor houses our neighbor's house matter. and. If your house caught on fire, Brian. And The Fire Department came barreling down the street to put the fire out. In you outside in your robe. You and your wife are are upset and you're crying. You're saying man. My photo albums man my. Life is so important to me. And I'm standing next to you and I go, Brian. My stuff's important to. My photo albums are important to. You're not special. And why is the Fire Department just focusing on your house? Guys Look. My house matters to. Don't you spray a little water on my house? To make sure it doesn't catch on fire. I'm important. quit whining about all of your belongings. Brian I have important stuff to. That is what black lives matter here's. That's what I hear when people say white lives matter. We're not saying you're wrong. We're not saying a lives don't matter. We're saying what you're missing. The point of the protest is that black lives feel like they're under crisis right now and the the response, all lives matter is ignoring the cry for help. Well I think that depends see I I'm not saying white lives matter. That's not my slogan. Understand my slow. My slogan is all lives matter. And, I mean that. I can understand how people might perceive that. There's a favouritism for certain live at isn't given the others book. That's not as not my view. That's not the way I look at it. I. Think all lives matter. I think everybody's house matters. In fact, I think everybody's business matters yet. One of the unfortunate things we've seen in the rioting looting. That's taking places. How many minority owned businesses have been shattered in the ground and in some cases I? Mean I've. I've seen interviews with shopowners that put everything they own their entire life. Savings went into that business, and at all, got shattered and burned to the ground virtually instantly while they matter to me, they have been the be black. Wise the they're human beings made in the image of God. They had dreams of hopes for that business. I think everybody's OUGHTA. Be Concerned about that and everybody feel their thanks for what's happened to it and I think most people do. And I I want to get into that I do I do I'll I'll make a note here on looting, but I don't want to skip over this point without us finding some common ground here because The the problem I see with shouting matches in the streets is..

"Y. You can just go right to his side and by the Beach. You can email them. You could talk to. You could tell them what you're looking for. He's an incredibly talented musician. And that stuff gets me ready to do a show and you might be freaking out. Wait a minute it didn't say dogma. Debate Oh my God. It didn't say Dogma of what's happening it's the same show shut up Here's what's happening. I just you know I started realizing as much as I love talking with believers in as much as I've built my life around it and continue to do it Started looking back at the show and I'm going about one in three of my episodes is an actual debate and the other times. We're covering topics and a lot of time with a psychic and it's a debate or it's a crystal healer right or someone who believes they can move things with their mind that one I would love to still have as a guest but it's definitely out there. I don't want to limit people to say you must be a Christian. Who WANTS TO DEBATE ATHEIST? If you WANNA come on this show that's number one. Number two is a lot of advertisers. Didn't want to get involved because they thought it was just as hateful eighth theus talking down about the Bible which is not at all what my shows about so I feel like just focusing on who I am as a person and continuing on with the same show everybody has loved for ten years is what I'm going to be doing so it. It just broadens the scope and allows more people to come to the table Who's already coming because sometimes Ken Shamrock for example? Ufc fighter. You have see legend. Wwe Legend hears about my show. And why would I get into a formal debate with? I don't do that. Yeah but if you have an idea of your tweeting about Bill Gates and corona virus and evolution. You're the guy want to talk to and I don't want people to be intimidated thinking they have to come to the table. You know bare knuckles. Up by the way dollar became DOT COM That's shamrocks a new organization We don't have to. We don't have to go at it like that. I am when I watch CNN when I WATCH MSNBC IF. I watched Fox News as long as I can stand it. I just see one pattern among all three of them. And it's just talking heads forty-one seconds yelling over each other We've reached a point. Now where where wearing a mask is now a political statement if your child has some sort of autoimmune disorder in you. Don't want to expose them to someone who were a mask that's now a vote for Biden and if you happen to go for a run and think I'm not going to be around any people. I just want to run around the block and I don't WanNa have trouble breathing so I'm not gonNA wear mask. You're now a trump supporter. I saw a tweet that said not wearing a mask is the new. Maga- hat funny. But at the end of the day we don't need politicize and break everything into black or white thinking and that's why it says in this intro we are resurrecting nuance and bringing back the art of conversation. Because if you listen to this show you know that we always start with love. The WHO I have on my show for the most part think that I am a victim of bad ideas and I think that they are a victim of bad ideas so we are trying to rescue each other. What you're hearing is a mutual rescue mission which means we both start from a position of love. So why can't we have that conversation? That's really what this show is about. So yeah we're going to be debating dogma. We're starting the show saying here's David C smalley. Who knows what the Hell's going to happen. Once the microphones are on you guys know. Don't edit this stuff so with that in mind I want to introduce my guest. I was talking to him before the show. He told me a brief intro of himself because he went to David see small dot com clicked on be a guest filled out the info. I'm actually going to read some of that Info to you. Because he he cl he did everything Right almost there's one thing he got wrong and we'll get into that he did everything right to get on the show because he just did it. I guess a week or two ago and maybe three and already got on the show But I but before we do that please join me in welcoming guest. Rob Camping narrow. Welcome to the show. But that's the biggest ovation. I've ever gone my life. So we'll they like so before I get into reading your submission that you did online. So by the way You answer every question. What I looked for when I'm when I'm picking a guest this is these are the these are the answers so I'm GonNa give people the key you want to be a guest on this show answered this way. There's only one that you got wrong. You said that you thought the Earth was fearful and that that's the only thing that was roy. Every everything else you know what I'm getting at is typically like to disagree with people on every aspect of their answers and that's the only one I agree with you on but So what do you? What do you make the whole flatter through movement man just curious sidebar here? Yeah I mean it's it's it's it's a Colt is is what it is your Bible. They say that the Bible supports their their view. What do you? What do you say to that? Yeah but it's a call I mean there can be a colt in in any Any religion can be a cold. The there's cult. There's there is cultish within Christianity. You have mormonism Jehovah's Witnesses you have I would call the KGB only movement A cold you know anything anything in which there's there's It's one small group of people that have a the dogmatic about one thing that that that's a call okay in my definition.

"The poor people. We get think the capitalism. Yeah no this is you. Okay thank you but I god I had another point I wanted to be well. You just said you just said heavier that it could be somebody even worse. Next time the next president they could get behind somebody even worse which is exactly exactly why we need to put the protections in place. Now that this doesn't happen again you've opened the door for the next guy that's worse to get away okay. With being worse we have to say trump do that was bad now. We have to put protections in place that you can never do that again and neither can the next guy or the next okay. Because we don't know who's going to be put in place I mean you. I think you made an argument for censoring trump and passing legislation to make it clearly. Eagle what he did it already is clearly illegal. What he did? I mean Andrew Laying said it does at the last Democrat that that he said we gotta stop focusing on trump stop talking what gave us trump stamp straight. I liked that you suddenly sound like you're on our side view or or at least you sound like you're in the trump. I know you're like it. I'll take it. Here's here's my response to that. The God all right. Let's over with Doug on the rest is going to be on Patriot on starting now. Goes support the show Patriot dot com slash. David C smalley..

"Welcome to dog the debate so good to be with you this. This show is going to be nostalgic for many of you entertaining for all of you and it's just good to get get back to our roots Sometimes I dabble in politics. I say dabble only show you the dabbling. I am so deep in the politics. 'cause I watch every moment I possibly can of the impeachment trial on deep within it because it helps governance in guys that's why religion has always been such a focus in my life is I it has a lot to do with our society so many Christians go. Why do you care so much? If you don't believe something like seventy to eighty percent of our country It claims to be some sort of Christian and politics has a lot to do with it. In Christianity has a lot to do with a lot of politics. There are tons of rules rules and laws in your local city that you don't even realize have a lot to do with religious history rather it's alcohol laws being sold sold on Sunday or not before a certain time and there's certain car dealerships can't be open on Saturday and Sunday. They've got to be closed and one of the days. There's so many things that are tied to it that it's it just affects our entire living situation and like I put on twitter. I care what you believe because because I drive next to you on the freeway if you let Jesus take the wheel we're both screwed so it matters to me what you believe in it should matter to you what I I believe. We're all humans we share this planet. We should love each other and care about what everybody is going to be spending. Eternity doing so I think it's important. It's important to talk about. I want to. I'm not even going to introduce you to my guest because he doesn't really need an introduction if you've been a fan of Dogma debate over the years ears now some of you just found me at so weird to me that have been doing this for ten years and occasionally. I'll get a message ago. I found you last week and I've been binging your show. It's so cold on like how people are just now discovering what I'm doing in its its. I'd give me a reason to keep going. I'm like what if I stopped three months ago. Go and they never found me. That'd be terrible. So that's some of the motivation. So keep sending me those messages. I love it especially. If it's on patron I thank you for all of these support it at Patriotair dot com slash. David C smalley. Were you.
