That's a five person committee. You were by statute and one is the justice minister. And to our Appointed by the coalition. One of those will be getting star who runs new hope, another conservative party, and the third will be The number two and he Amina. The reason that this matters is that she would. Her name is yet Iowa shake head. I hope my presentation and terrible That would give conservatives a majority. Right. That would give them an outright majority on the committee that will appoint six of Israel's 15 Supreme Court justices in the next four years. So it's a big deal that's not easily overcome. Then there's some parliamentary maneuvers ahead. But it does appear as though They will get it together. You know, the left will eventually yield to get something and being some government rather than shut out completely by a right wing government. But also on the Islamist party is now changed its demand set as well, You know, It gets found a short strokes right now. It's night fighting right now, because I got it. Get it done by midnight tonight or it reverts the Knesset. And maybe they can get it done after the connection gets the lead, But it's no longer live peed.

As the 50th anniversary their version of Okinawa Japan approaches and it was Just a terrific conversation, led by former secretary State Pompeo and former national security adviser Brian and the members of the seminar and bottom line.

And so watch that space China three child policy may not halt the Democratic free fall, according to the financial Times this exactly what Dr Albert Mohler told me yesterday.

They deal with that oil prices are skyrocketing is OPEC producers agree that they will begin to Increase. Reduction. The oil price went to $71.34 announced that barrel. Too bad We're not in on that because of Biden era. Anti energy policies. In fact, the bite administration suspended oil leases in the Arctic refuge yesterday. Remember how we won that? Finally, after 30 years, just like the Keystone XL pipeline? With the stroke of his pen, Binder said. No, we're not doing that. So that means the reason you're paying for gas at the pump. Because America's independence oil it depends being given away given away by President Biden and his team spent suspending all oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Reserve.

They're two vacancies in Ohio, which will be filled in November, expected to split 11 and one in Florida in January. So Nancy Pelosi is going to be operating with a five member swing. She can only lose. She can lose four, not five members and when, but the Republicans look good to get the house back. Um Big story in the courts, racial bias and covert relief.

He marked the 100th anniversary of the master and Tulsa. But right racially Specific remedies such as May come in the L. A housing crisis. They only follow racially specific discrimination. Now that did occur in Los Angeles. So the federal judge out there David Carter can fashion race based remedies and gender based remedy since Skid Row was originally Product of gender bias, send all the drugs and all the men and all the unemployed guy's toe. 50 square blocks. Speaking of race controversy, is the editor of the medical journal job. I had to step down. He had to resign because he had tweeted that he's offended when people accuse him of racism. I don't understand that story. It all there's a new water war in the weapon. Klamath Basin along the California Oregon border fish have been dying on mass farmers are imputed. They've been cut off by their water source. Good luck. The water wars were back. Team. Trump ran them efficiently so that farmers did not lose everything. But they are back in the hands of environmental extremists. Just like the Arctic drilling environmental extremists have flooded back in the interior.

"I'm gonna tell you who you are what that's what the creator does even our bodies by the way he's saying. I know who you are. i created you. I'm telling you who you are. And that has been security for human beings through millennia. We're in the midst of vast cultural conspiracy to undo that security and it comes right down to what you mentioned the preferred pronouns as if pronouns our preference what kind of insanity that right i love what you said and i think that's a great place for us to end that place of comfort that we don't have to look inside of ourselves. We don't have to look to the media culture. We don't have to look to social whims or movements to tell us who we are. Authors are influencers or podcasters. This billion dollar self help industry. We don't have to go to these people who don't know us by the way don't know our names don't care about us. A lot of these activists communities. Don't care about these kids that they are convincing are confused at five years old. Some of these people in the scientific community. They don't necessarily care about you. They don't care about your kids but god does in. He cares enough to tell us who we are so we can get off that hamster wheel of self identification. So thank you so much for reminding us of that. I hope people are leaving. This conversation feeling comforted. Can you remind everyone where they can find you how they can follow and support you. Thank you so allie beth. I always enjoy these conversations. Albert muller albert moh elliara dot com the briefing thinking in public and a host of actually thousands of articles. I appreciate you. Allow me to say that. If i could just say one final word. It's this you know part of what it means to love christ for the christian church and for individual. Christians is decided people after the world's told you all these lies and few tried. Every kind of therapy have undergone any kind of surgery. We're the ones who are going to be here to love you when everyone else has abandoned you the people of grace and truth and it's part of what we need to say to ourselves. We need to remember to be here for the broken. With grace and truth when the world having lied to them abandons them absolutely care about a when you are politically useful to us. We care about you because you are an image bearer and we care about your heart and your soul. We know that you're more than just a body. You're more than just an agent of the state and you're right. Christianity has been the refuge for all kinds of marginalized people throughout our history. And we have to continue to be that much. Dr molar for taking the time to talk to us.

"Themselves understanding their sin and their need for a savior. We want to love them to knowing the fully sufficient savior of the unfailing gospel and so we have to be spoken to. And we have to speak to others with the same specificity as the bible does because god loves us to be so specific Backing off that. Specificity isn't kind. it's consigning people to hell right while i think it's also so easy to kind of give into the rhetoric that people who say that you know you have blood on your hands. If you're someone who talks about what the bible has to say about gender and sexuality you're the one that's causing people to be depressed anxious and suicidal if you speak about this well that's the last thing that a christian wants to do. That's the last thing that a christian wants to be. It's so easy to buy into that. But like you said if god is love that everything that he says is good or bad is also done from love and far from us to claim that we have the authority to redefine. Love is something other than what god says that it is and so christians do have all of the equipment in the scriptures to be able to kind of push back against what really is a lot of bullying and a lot of manipulation in order to silence christians from speaking truth right now. So well said alabama you made reference to the transgenderism issue. And you don't let let's put it this way. It's not biblically. Minded christians now forced on seven year olds the anxiety of trying to figure out there really a boy or a girl. It's not biblically. Minded christians who have driven through the entire society and instability in personal identity and that led to the development of what can only be described as a radical and never ending identity politics. It's not biblical christians who injected this therapeutic mentality into the culture. That says it's all about you going inside yourself to find out who you are. Which by the way has to be the most depressing experiences for any human being. And so i find it very telling that now. Christians are being blamed for creating instability and anxiety when frankly christians teaching the same thing for over two millennia are actually. The only people haven't changed our story. Yeah that's true. And i think what you said about this idea of going on this journey of self actualization and self discovery being depressing his actually part of what's behind a lot of the pastors acquiescing about this particular subject. Because we've kind of the secular new age lie that the biggest problem that people are facing is a lack of self esteem when really the biggest problem that people are facing no matter their race no matter their gender no matter their socio economic status is that we are dead in sin apart from christ So i think that's a lot of times why pastures may maybe day avoid talking about sin because we've believed that the most important thing we can give someone is self confidence and like you said how depressing if on our self confidence to stand at the end of the day. Because i don't know about you but mine waivers about every other second. Depending on a variety of circumstances yes a dependent if dependent upon myself for my own self definition my own self security my own self therapy and all the rest honestly up front. I'm doomed. I pretty much had that figured out when i was six. I think i certainly knew was sixteen. I know in my sixty s and let me tell you have abandoned. Hope the last thing i need is to define myself. I'm no better edited. it's in my sixties than it was. When i was six the security for a child by the way comes when the parent says we know exactly who you are..

"I mean we're talking about a positive eternal sense of what marriage actually is and that's why it's not one of those issues to me that we can just say well. Yeah sure we kinda disagree on that but that's just a peripheral issue. I hope i'm not trying to make too big of a deal of that though people would accuse me of being political for doing so. Well i mean eventually because these issues come down to policy they become political. And there's no way to deal with these issues honestly without running the risk of saying you're being political. Yes i believe. The law should protect. For instance. The life of the unborn. If you want to call that political. I'll say to my critics yes. I want that to be policy. Politics is the way that establishes policy. But you know when you're talking about the for instance the you hear these people especially and by the way it's not so much these days the lgbtq secular activists community. That i think is our problem in the sense of most of our immediate arguments. It's what kind of leftist evangelical who style themselves that way. Who want to say well. Yeah maybe it's true that they're just like the seven clobber scriptures coming number one just in terms of of our understanding in the bible. If there was just one sentence in the bible that this is wrong then it would be eternally wrong because god said it but we're not just talking about seven clobber scriptures. The way they they try to dismiss them in in the new testament in particular there is a use of vocabulary. That frankly is so candid. Especially in paul the the languages so candid that no doubt what we're talking about here people would try to say you know the the the bible. The older the didn't know about the idea of sexual orientation or yeah paul did. That's exactly what paul's talking about. He's talking about those who are burning with passion both men and women for others of the same sex he. He understands what he's talking about and all that to say that our understanding of scripture comes down to whether or not we just start up saying we know that god's given us not only what he has spoken to us but all that we need. This is the sufficiency of scripture. We have an all we need to understand these things. The bible's not going to be corrected by modern medical arguments. Not going to be corrected by the sexual revolutionaries. I'm going to be corrected by the divinity school at harvard The bible is gonna stand just as it is. We're not in need of some kind of therapeutic knowledge from the twenty first century to help us to understand what god really intended. Yes and i think it's important for us to just to reemphasize that truth. When it comes to the christian life is not separate from love so we don't talk about this and say this is how we hate people or this is how we other is people or we are emphasizing this sin as the chief centre or anything like that. The reason that we're talking about this so much is because it is such a pressing cultural issue..

"You just demonstrated to say well. I don't have to kind of figure out by mood what the bible says about marriage. I don i can start right in the first two chapters of scripture. And here's the thing jesus himself was so clear. The scripture cannot be broken. Not one jot or tiddle will pass away until all is fulfilled. Jesus never said well. This is the old testament definition of humanity of gender and sex and amusing contemporary words. But you get the point meaning. He affirmed everything. And here's the thing is part of the most glorious demonstration you see it especially in the gospel of john. Jesus for instance in john chapter nine when he has the man blind from birth and he is confronted by. What does he do. He reaches to the ground. Any spits on the dirt and then puts it on the man's eyes and says go wash. But here's the thing. He has the very agent of creation who made the first human being adam out of the dust and breathe life into him and the new testament. Just go back and says okay. What jesus is saying is is what the creator saying. Because jesus was the logos that the the very the very of creation from the beginning by the fathers decree and. I don't mean to get to deepen the weeds here. Just just it just gives me such security to know that is actually demonstrated by his words. And by his deeds the fact that he is the fulfillment of everything that we find beginning in genesis. one and genesis two contradicted. Yes and i think that that is also why people get very confusing in their fiala g. as it affects the rest of their world view is because there is a trend of kind of separating jesus from the god header separating jesus from what people say is the god of the old testament in saying that jesus kind of just did away with all of that. The god of the old testament. Is this big raffle. God that we really don't have to worry about. We can What's the term hitch from the old testament because it is it's no longer relevant and i think that is also how even though you could speak how this argument doesn't even work. That is also how people kind of feel like they can get permission to redefine things like gender in marriage and sexuality because they think all of that was left in the old testament and finally we just have. This uber tolerant. Hit in the new testament. Who establishes that. The only rules though is that there is no rule. Can you tell us why that is..

"Attitude we have in dealing with people becomes a test of our love but being required to tell a falsehood about someone is not an act of love jesus by the way who after all set on the way the truth and the life and the truth jesus spoke so carefully jesus that people often imagine when they throw that out is not the jesus who cleansed the temple jesus who spoke so sternly to the pharisees in the it's not it's not the jesus who said did you not know that from the beginning god created marriage is the union of a man and a woman This is in other words. Jesus the jesus of the gospels never demonstrated truth in one place in loving another. It was always love and truth. And that's the test for us because the culture around us and frankly even some christians aren't thinking very carefully are telling us no love means that you just accept people as they are. Well you know. That's the one thing that jesus did do and didn't do. He accepted them. Exactly where the are which meant as centers but he came to die for centers in order that through his atoning sacrifice in our faith in him. We may be saved in other words. He didn't love us as we are to leave us where we are. He loved us as we are in order to redeem us by his blood. That's a very different thing. Yes and i would say that. Last part is exactly the characteristic of jesus that people like to forget about when they're talking about jesus affirming various social movements in the name of love while he cared so much about send that he he died for this kind of hippie social revolutionary. That i think a lot of progressives described. Jesus asked just isn't in alignment with who is in the gospels. But it's also not in alignment with the gospel in general. It's a completely different religion. And something that. I think that we are seeing. I think we're seeing a lot of churches kind of wrestle with that. Unfortunately it seems like a lot of christians feel like they have the equipment to even be able to answer questions that are really answered in the first book of the bible in the first chapters of the bible. What is male and female. What does marriage and family look like according to guide. Why do you think it is that so many churches that may have historically or denominations that may have historically been solid on this issue. They so quickly seed ground. La beth i think what we're seeing is a lot of them have very little commitment to biblical truth and biblical theology and biblical theology. Comes out of the fact that you just indicated exactly right reflex for christians are reflect should be. What's marriage will the or gets to decide what's the meaning of male and female will the creator decides it has revealed to us in the first sentences of scripture and that means that the scripture storyline. Go all the way through takes its absolute and unconditional affirmation. That god made us in his image male and female created he them and that That adam and eve our first parents were united in marriage therefore they were in in in the garden naked. And not ashamed. And it got establishes huma- inhumanity creates us in his image establishes marriage. And then the the family the natural family by the time you get to the end of genesis two. You have the mechanism. The means whereby god is allowing human beings to be faithful to the command. He's given us to be fruitful. And multiply and fill the earth. God's plan was that from the beginning and then we follow through the story line of scripture all the way to men and women redeemed by christ of every tongue and tribe and people and nation. You have to follow this through and again. How many christians have the instinct..

"And that's what's so tragic about all of this it's institutionalizing and coercing what we know to be untrue. You know there's just not an easy answer to that if you're working for a company that that that isn't requiring you to affirm the the moral revolution contrary to scripture. But you have to fill out a form. Excuse me if if you are male and you can say he him. That's not untrue. It's it's ridiculous but it's not untrue. it's it's true. The problem is that that implies an entire worldview and this is where we're headed we're headed to the fact that students who are going to be applying for colleges and universities people teenagers applying for their first job. A lawyer who wants to become partner to offer all of this is now going to be demanded of us. And it's going to. It's going to take a lot of really clear thinking which we can't always we can't always come up with the policy upfront. But we better convictions. Upfront yes i definitely agree with the idea that stating your preferred pronouns or putting it in the signature for your email if you work for a particular company it acknowledges in a particular world view that gender identity is different than biological sex which we just. Don't believe biologically or biblically to be true. It's just not a reality that is founded in science or any kind of Theological truth so doing courage people to resist his as much as you possibly can. And of course we don't believe in in burying false witness against someone and so we don't believe in lying about someone saxes separate than their gender identity. It is very complicated. And i think some pushback that in particular conservative christians get is well. That's not loving your neighbor and not using preferred pronouns or not affirming. someone's gender identity is unloving and hateful and jesus was just all about love. How can you empower someone to of refute that argument that they may get from progressive visit progressive christians. Allie beth one of the first principles of christian thinking is what's called the the unity of the transcendental and that sounds very abstract but it comes down to the fact that the bible presents the good the beautiful and the true as the same thing the beautiful the true and the loving as the same thing and the reason they're united in in one is because it's god who is infinitely loving as god is the source of all love god who's infinitely true and and so god's not divisible the the good beautiful and the true the loving it's all the same which means telling a lie is never loving it means telling someone the truth a refusing to tell someone the truth themselves never loving it means that just say bearing false witness is actually to break god's command so obviously the the.

"When i'm listening to your podcast is how thoughtful and careful you are in your analysis of particular news stories. How you pick up on those words and phrases that most people don't necessarily notice have been swapped out for another phrase and we just kind of get the general sense that this is a a positive issue and this person is being unfairly criticized on. How have you kind of. I would hone that skill in that. Craft of being a careful reader in analyzer of. What's going on in the news. Because i i don't feel like i've perfectly honed. It there are many many things you see on your podcast that i'm thinking. Wow i don't think i would have even noticed that. What can thoughtful christians due to get better at being more considerate when they're reading a story. I love these questions. And i certainly i miss things to of course but you know what what i've tried to do over. The years is is look at how language is being used and frankly as far more important to me as a theologian than even engages. The media but language is never neutral and at. How language is deployed about abortion. And the killing of the unborn. Do you talk about reproductive health reproductive rights reproductive freedom. None of that none of that and and the the media in the united states frankly it includes a lot of what people will think are conservative media. They're operating out of the same vocabulary list and that's very very dangerous. When those words are very carefully crafted and carry a moral agenda that we believe is contrary to scripture. And give you another example. I'm looking at a new source just a couple of hours ago. They were referring to gender alignment surgery. I'm oh that's the same surgery they used to be called sex reassignment surgery and by the way it's horrifying in its in. Its very implications in reality. But you'll notice how all of a sudden that's changed. And i try to document those changes. Okay here it would have been called unethical unimaginable. Contrary to the hippocratic oath then it becomes gender reassignment surgery. Then it becomes gender alignment surgery watching that is just. I think really really important. And i appreciate you mentioning it. That's that's what i try to draw. attention to. The other thing is just to say that the media have taken out of the mainstream media the new york times washington post and.

"We have to understand what we're up against there but it's even more importantly out of love for christ's church for fellow believers for our own children and grandchildren need to be thinking through these issues even ahead of the culture in order to be faithful when the culture throws the the next the next weapon at us and frankly they're coming fast and furiously and just love her own children and grandchildren and the determination that they grow up and be faithful to christ. It requires that we be very aware of the things going on around us. i understand. It's daunting and painful. And it's complicated. But the church of the lord. Jesus christ has all the resources we need to confront these issues with faith and without fear. That doesn't mean that that we don't understand what we're up against but we respond with faith and without fear. So that's a good word of encouragement knowing the truth is a good biblical. Principle and denying reality is never faithfulness. Lot of people find it hard to figure out what the truth is. There isn't necessarily one source. One newspaper that people can go to and get a holistic understanding of one issue or one story. People feel like they have to read several different outlets to try to understand all the different angles and wade through all the bias of of just one story. What is your advice to people who are like. I don't have time to do all of that. I want to know the truth about something. How do they discern what's biased. What's not an all of that when it comes to reading the news. Well that's a really good set of questions beth. I was a newspaper editor and emma theologian this by my main calling thankful for that experience in journalism and and working with the media through the years. I think we have to understand that the to answer the first question. No there's not a single source in terms of of secular press that we can turn there just isn't there are more less trustworthy sources. But i think one of the things we have to understand is that there's a culture of the media and that's been true basically for for decades but it's increasingly true now the the culture of the media's an incredibly small self selected very secular very wealthy very very much tied to the The modern academic culture very self policing or not culture in other words they they they see the world differently. Just just today for instance. I was listening to a report in which it it referred to a pro abortion politician to saying that this politicians been criticized for his defense of reproductive rights. And i mean this was presented as if it's just a neutral news story but you and i know it's anything but helping christians to understand what we hear helping christians understand why we do have to check sources and we have to look for authoritative issues you know. One of the first rules of journalism. I was taught is. Don't trust anything written by anyone who can't be fired for writing right and that's just a good starting place. That's not enough but you know if no one can be fired for getting this wrong. Don't trust it but then again we. This is where christians really need to be involved in conversation. I appreciate so much what you do. And you're careful engagement. What i tried to the briefing. Every weekday is to help christians to think about what the media is talking about but even how to judge what the media are doing and erasing a very important question and it just points out the fact that we can't be listening to one secular voice and think we have anything close to a trustworthy flow of information.

"Dr miller. Thank you so much for joining me again. You are such a voice of encouragement for me. As i listen to you on a daily basis in trying to make sense of really what can only be described as confusion and chaos. That something that you describe it as often as well whether it's coming to gender identity and the sexual and moral revolution that you talk about so much you're just the intricacies of policy in court decision so first of all. Thank you for that. Can you give a little bit of first briefing. Courage meant to christians who really just want to bury their head in the sand and to not look at. What's going on culturally and politically and just pretend like none of it's happening because we don't know what to do about it. Do you think it's important for us to kind of keep abreast on what's going on and why looks great to be with you. Allie beth and yes. I do want to offer that word of encouragement to christians not to stick our heads in the sand and try to ignore or be oblivious to what's going on because it's not just that we we have to be faithful to christ in the midst of our times we. We have to understand what we're up against there but it's even more importantly out of love for christ's church for fellow believers for our own children and grandchildren need to be thinking through these issues even ahead of the culture in order to be faithful when the culture throws the the next the next weapon at us and frankly they're coming fast and furiously and just love her own children and grandchildren and the determination that they grow up and be faithful to christ. It requires that we be very aware of the things going on around us. i understand. It's daunting and painful. And it's complicated. But the church of the lord. Jesus christ has all the resources we need to confront these issues with faith and without fear. That doesn't mean that that we don't understand what we're up against but we respond with faith and without fear. So that's a good word of encouragement knowing the truth is a good biblical. Principle and denying reality is never faithfulness.

"Hey guys welcome to relatable. Today it is an honor to again. Talk to dr albert molar. He is the president of the southern baptist theological seminary he hosts a daily podcast called the briefing where he analyzes news and events from a christian worldview. Today we're gonna talk about those worldview issues. What christians do in light of the sexual moral revolution. That seems to be going so quickly. How do we handle things like discerning the truth from the lie when it comes to reading media reporting. How do we make sure that we are continuing. In truth and in love in an uncompromising ungracious way when it comes to how we use our language so for example using people's personal or preferred pronouns. We're gonna talk about the issue of sexuality in marriage and how christians can lovingly and kindly stand firm in these issues so you're going to get a lot out of this conversation. I'm very much looking forward to listening to it without further ado here is dr albert muller dr miller. Thank you so much for joining me again. You are such a voice of encouragement for me.

"But that's done now and now we don't need to be worried about the courts because of the appointments trumps mates and I can feel comfortable voting against Trump or sitting it out because I don't like him personally. You know, Dan, I shudder at the lack of just common civics on the part of so many Americans. The Supreme Court. The federal judiciary is like the last refuge. No, that's very important. And the problem is it had turned into a super liberal Legislature. Frankly, conservative majority is going to fix some of its activism. But let's let's just say that by the time it gets to the Supreme Court, you already have in case of federal legislation, Congress and the and the executive acting on it. So just take Joe Biden his word. He says that he would repeal the Hyde amendment that can just happen through Congress. The Supreme Court found that the Hyde amendment was constitutional. Not that it was mandatory AA. I think American pro life evangelicals failed to understand that if we lose the White House and both houses of Congress The Supreme Court. Not going to be able to be the final battle wall here and with respect to the where we are on some other issues like the redefinition moving from the redefinition of marriage, which many predicted this is where we go to the redefinition. Of gender identity itself there that that is that is the next front in terms of the state imposing its will on faithful people. Well, Joe Biden said this this weekend in the interview with the LGBTQ you newspaper in Philadelphia. He said that with 100 days, so press four The Equality amendment, and that's a direct contradiction of religious liberty. And and when he was asked about religious liberty, he basically just threw it under the bus. I mean, it's not like we haven't been told what their intentions are, and also to the suggestions about Biden being a one termer questions about Biden's capacity and health and so forth. Well, then you have Kamala Harris says. The backstop in comma, Harris says, demonstrated that she is particularly hostile to religion essentially compared the Knights of Columbus to the Ku Klux Klan. In one judicial confirmation hearing. Yeah, it's studying its ominous and it's also important for us to remember that the ascending left wing in the Democratic Party Wasn't satisfied Fight with Biden. They weren't satisfied with Kamala Harris. I mean, that party came dangerously close to nominating burning Harris. Bernie Sanders Sanders. Yeah, right. All the all the names you might as well for all the names together. It's one person that turned into a bad salad there, but well, but to your point, I mean, this is what Dan manager wrote in the journal the other day. Joe Biden is Bernie. They They didn't They didn't reject Bernie Theyjust package Bernie in a more sellable Ah, a sellable rapper. Yeah, And the proof of that is that when Joe Biden opened his mouth what's coming out or Bernie Sanders policies? No question and then going back to this, too, because I know people who put really emphasis and I respect this on the character of their elected leaders and have real problems with Trump's character and and should have real problems with Joe Biden's character to given all of his Lying and plagiarizing, which is stealing and fantastical stories over the years, But But you you suggest, you know if we have to live in this practical in perfect world. I cannot accept the argument that a call man who affirms the dismembering of babies in the womb has a superior character to a man who ran like Genghis Khan, but acts to preserve that life And you know this, So it's not ideal. You wish you could get both e. A man who protects life and also the man who is reasonable and humble and measured. But that's not the choice. Well, and we need to be honest to say that really isn't the choice in most presidential election cycles By the time someone gets to the point of gaining either parties. Presidential nomination that they aren't the faint of heart. They aren't the meek of spirit. Uh, the few took game the presidential nomination by that, And then besides that, I have to insist. Traditional biblical Augustinian Christian. This is going back to the traditional Christian understanding of character and policy. Policy and character can't be totally separated. If you're going to support the dismembering of babies in the womb, That's a character issue. No question. I mean, is this what the left always says even even budgetary decisions. Suspending decisions are moral issues, So I mean, it says, using Their perspective to apply it to their can. Absolutely right. Absolutely. And there's a sense in which, of course, every political issue is a moral issue. But it can only be rightly understood in proportion to a larger moral argument, and that's what's largely missing from our public square. He is Dr Albert Mohler, theologian, ordained minister serves as the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and I will tweet out the piece. I was referencing from Dr Mueller Christian's conscience. And the looming 2020 election. Dr Mahler. Thanks for joining.

"A bit of wisdom that I think I've learned is I can't really? Contemplate many hypotheticals anymore I've got to deal with the actual xlt. Now I think by the way that's a good Christian affirmation. That's the tradition known as Christian realism. I can think of all kinds of hypotheticals. But I've got gotTA deal. What the actual so in any given situation where I have to make a moral decision. I've got to deal with the alternatives presented to me and so. You ask a hypothetical question, and it's tempting to answer it, but. Anything, so you could say you know. A the president made a statement when he was a candidate, saying I could shoot someone in my my base, which will support me. I don't think that's true by the way. However I don't think that's I. Don't think that's the right place to draw the line so even just just talking to you now I think hypotheticals a helpful anymore, but the actual 's are, and and this is where a part of the Christian political calculus in a fallen world has to be I've got to. Very imperfect options here. But both will have consequences. I've got to live with my decision based upon those consequences and I. Really think as part of the reason why I wrote this book. The gathering storm allies I think in two thousand twenty where to hinge moment of history in which if if there were to be? I mean you listen to the conversation going on to the Democratic Left? And that's becoming the center of the Democratic Party. If, those policies were to put into place. I think it would, it would be a horrifying thing, yes, and so. Sometimes in politics, you say this is the best thing I know to do now. We will hope for a better opportunity or option later. But never perfect, and this is where some evangelicals have have. The have had too much faith in some candidates who've always let us down. No candidates perfect politics is the art of the possible. Otherwise they don't get elected and so every single president I voted for is disappointed me in some way. But the alternative would have disappointed me a lot more right and would have been a lot more probably consequential in a way that you don't agree with So Do you think that Christians? Though and this is probably the the last questioner to do you think Christians have an obligation to still it hypocritical? I guess is what I'm asking for Christians. To vote for Donald Trump, because of the reasons that you and I both agree with, but still criticize him when we know, he needs to be criticized because the rebuttal from the other side. This will you voted for him? How could you criticize all these things you say you don't like? Well. I'm trying to do that. I've tried to do that. I'm very supportive. Where can be supportive but critical where I have to be critical, just trying to be a consistent. Christian making these evaluations. But I think we had to press back on this premise alley. There's no one who. Who wants to buy the entire product of any candidate especially after you know. What's interesting to see how many people who voted for? Barack Obama, a amongst Democrats were very dissatisfied with him at the end. In other words politics is is not a perfect business, but..

"Little Voice, you know you anoint my head with oil. Making sure he gets every word, right? Yes so little Dick Shit, and then I realized I don't even know how many of those words he fully understands that words hidden in his heart. It's the it's the word of God. It will do a work which only the word of God can do. And I just want. Christian parents to fill their children with the word of God. Because that's that's GonNa? Make more difference than. Filling them with Mir arguments. Yes, and there's such an urgency to do so you've talked about on your podcast I've talked about on this show that there is a very powerful force that has been around for a long time, but seems maybe more powerful than ever trying to disintegrate the parent child relationship. We hear that a lot especially recently. It's really communistic idea that children don't belong to their parents. They belong to the community or even belong to themselves that there should be no traditional nuclear family because. Because it's a part of patriarchal oppression and all of that nonsense, so people have to understand that in the government cultural social influences. There are people who don't want you to home school. Your kids don't want you to private school year. Kids don't want you to teach your kids at all I. Think it was a Harvard professor that recently said that it's a thorn, -Tarian for a parent to want to home school. Their children and so parents just have to understand that there's an urgent is now. It is it is? Oh, explain that explain. What I mean is parents have authority. If that God gives parents, the responsibility to teach their children, and what that Harvard professor was now infamous. Pushing back on is that parents would impose upon their children their own world. That's actually what parents do, but also tells us something else, and it tells us and John Dewey. Who was one of the major formative figures in public school education his country back in the twentieth century. He openly said what we need to do is to separate children from the prejudices of their parents. And he actually meant that in religious terms, he meant that theologically. He saw. The religion of parents as As a very dangerous thing and his point is, you can't have secular children if religious parents keep raising their children religiously and his concern. was you know Orthodox Judaism in certain parts of the country and Roman Catholicism, and of course, a conservative evangelical parents, but that's our responsibility and so I. I just want to say. Don't be scared off by the experts. Who say you know you need to give your children lots of? I don't I, don't I. Don't believe that by the way that's even good for children or saying no. Not at all S, Lewis says there is no neutral ground I, think some people think of public school or non religious spaces as neutral. Will they have just as much of a faith is we do and just as much of an ideology as we do, and it points in different moral directions and I. think parents are all people, but especially need to realize there is no neutral ground for you or for your children. It's either claimed or counterclaims. Absolutely right, you know just in recent days, histories come out of sesame street the television program. And the this history is made clear what we all knew already, and that was the the. There's very much a worldview behind sesame street and but I think a lot of parents. Sesame Street is a it's just muppets and vocabulary and math, but no there is massive worldview social moral messaging. That has from the very beginning come through sesame street..

"Dot com to register now without further ado here is Dr Albert Miller Dr Miller. Thank you so much for joining me. I'm very glad you're with your alley. I think everyone listening knows who you are, and what you do probably listens to your podcast, but just in case there are a few people out there who don't. Could you give everyone an introduction? I'm Albert. Muller Service President to this other? Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville Kentucky and An author writer speaker and due to podcasts a daily podcast five days, a week called the briefing, which is a daily analysis of news and events from a Christian worldview and that's A. Daily take on what I. Think Christians ought to be thinking about as we engage the world around us and then podcast thinking in public, which is along farm. Conversation, it comes out fairly regularly. Conversations with the authors thinkers. ESPECIALLY AUTHORS WHO Some of whom are not Christians as a way of. Ideas and having a fruitful conversation. And so. That's a part of what I do. It's a lot of fun, and it's A. It's a fast life. Yes, it is especially with everything that's going on I'm sure even use sometimes feel overwhelmed with just the amount of news that you have to cover and analyze every day. You just wrote a book. You've written several books, but you just wrote about the gathering storm. Can you tell everyone why you wrote it? And what what it's about? The subtitle of the Book Is Secularism Culture and the church, but the the title has a story and some will hear it. They'll know it already. Winston Churchill after the second world. War wrote his six volume history of that war, and the first of the six volumes was entitled the Gathering Storm. And it was about the gathering storm clouds over Europe in particular in the nineteen thirties. Churchill saw what was coming. So many of the most. Respected Intellectual Aristocratic people around him and throughout. Europe refused to see what was happening. He was honest about it. He was right about it horrifyingly enough. And I just use that as a metaphor. I'm not saying that two thousand twenty S. Is The nineteen thirties, but I am saying in our own time. There are significant clouds on horizon. There's a there's a gathering storm. I think most Christians perceive it. They know the world's changing and fundamental ways around this I tried to explain the most fundamental of those changes, and and look at it through several different lenses from everything from sexual morality in the family to generational change, and how cultures produce, but the big story here is the secularization of the culture. How did we just a brief analysis? You could probably talk. Talk about this for a long time. Probably discuss it in your book. But how did we get to this place to where you talk about? For example, the sexual revolution, a lot, which is really just one example of how a truth is become relative and subjective or redefining even basic biological definitions like gender are we here just because of the natural trajectory of the sinfulness of man, did Christians and the church have some part and this what happened?.

"Today I've been gone for the last two days but I'm back for this hour because I did not want to miss the opportunity to talk with doctor Larry on about something I think is actually extraordinary I think it's a an incredible moment in the west I think it's the rebirth of Britain and I am overstating this only a little bit because I think what Boris Johnson did upon taking the keys to number ten was amazing last week and I wanted to talk to doctor Larry on president Hillsdale college about it this way not just because it's a they'll tail dialogue which it is the last radio hour every week thing else tales available Hillsdale dot EDU all of our conversation dating back to twenty thirteen or queue for Hillsdale I went out to doctor Larry on because this is one of the things on which he knows something and I have actually pretend quite well and many things but about the British parliamentary system he knows a lot and can we remind for the benefit of our new audience in Bloomington Indiana for example doctor on how it is that you came to know so much about British politics well I went over there to get myself a girl and that but I had a bit of spare time so I bone up on it no I I went to England to study in nineteen seventy seven and I ended up working for Martin Gilbert the Churchill biographer where I met my wife and I watched market that is that your come to power and prosecutor first year as prime minister and that's the best political theory at the end of that I've ever witnessed with my own eyes and British politics are a drama and in specially in those days gosh they were good and so you're just watching the best show you ever saw and you can watch it back then went on TV but that you could hear it on the radio and read in the papers which was a great thing yeah you'd and you and then if you study Winston Churchill you know with the church of the individual I've turned down and do them because he wished to be remembered as a man of the house of Commons what was so important about that well Churchill explains that a greatly I gotta ask you before we go further it came to my attention this week at the Nixon library that Frank Gannon had worked for Randolph Churchill for a while when he was getting his PhD at Oxford in pursuing a degree in Great Britain have you cross paths with Frank no I eight weeks James short notes years ago and you know he knew Martin Gilbert way back then and I knew of him from Martin Gilbert but now I don't know him at some point we'll have to arrange for you to me that he and I talked British politics on this coast and you and I talked on the on the east coast I think it's edifying for Americans to know about it because we are derived from this system but our framers did not want this system and in a not show Larry why did we not want a parliamentary democracy in America well you you you the the source of the parliamentary democracy in America is not like the source of government as her in Britain is not like the source of government because Chrissy developed out of monarchy right it took a long time yeah and you know they had to cut the head off king and depose another one but eight the king had the authority and then the yeah the first parliamentary gestures were the lord's Steve strong Merrin who also controlled land having you know a body to get together and talk and advise the king and then you know the society grew and they included the common people didn't want to be involved well we didn't you know you couldn't you know there was I mean look first well in in Britain the first election in which everybody every adult voted in Britain was nineteen twenty eight that is pretty remarkable yeah and and and and and it is it is eighteen seventy five they were still narrow franchises and rotten boroughs which means boroughs that nobody lives in and so that lord who controls the borough gets to really appointed member of parliament so there was you know in other words they came to all of this after we did and and you know well after and then so they're developing along the it's called pathway evolution they go in a different direction but our framers do not want the executive mixed up with the legislature and and that in in that they were right and a and my opinion and they have the and they have the ascent of Winston Churchill who always interpreted the British political system not as Walter Bagehot interprets it you know he cabinet government is his deal and he's the dominating commentator on the British constitution from you know the time he wrote in the late nineteenth century through in nineteen fifty if I just let the church will never went along with that what Churchill thought was we have a system of separation of powers we eat in the house of Commons pick the executive and then we watch their every move like a hawk and we debate them every week and and so everybody realizes cause separation of powers is he is born in the human nature itself according to James Madison in what respect are we not are we all created equal you know not height weight not smart not anything but we're all above the animals and below the angel yes and so we have to have long and those who make the laws also have to be controlled and the first device for doing that is representation the words we have collect them and the second device is the separation of powers and so the founders and absorb that problem you know from great writing you know especially Montesquieu was an inspiration to them on this particular point in that the most important author on the subject and so they wanted to divide the powers well I wanted to do that too and sort of had an interpretation of the British constitution the show that they were divided but when the power changes in Great Britain it is not like the United States it changes completely in the form of a person when a prime minister Paul who is replaced by prime minister that prime minister goes to the head of the table at number ten and what powers do they have Dr well and that's cheery and we we talk about debates the other day that man has been changed by television because what what the prime minister was was the first among equals and that is to say at the end of a you know you know first of all the executive action is delegated to the to the cabin in the cabinet does control what is debated in the house of Commons until the members get mad yeah and it and then they take it back from when that happens commonly by the way they're always worried what the what the members think if you're Winston Churchill and prime ministers he was twice you've got a guy in the parliament in the second premiership it was George Harvey walked and if your travel around the world say you know fight the war he's right news memos every day about what goes on in the house of Commons that day so they are paying attention they have to well it is but it but so what Morey if if this were sixty years ago they would sit down have a cabinet meeting and he would he would have to appoint his cabinet from people who commanded respect in the house of Commons so the air sorry in his party in the house of Commons so that he could be when when about of his party members in the house to be the leader of the party which is what makes you prime minister now quick question the leader of the house of Commons is not the prime minister but he's a member of the government we have a new leader of the house of Commons in Jacob Rees Mogg which is I think a terrific development but to Churchill ever serve as the leader of the house no so it's a one job he did not happen well it it it's yeah and that's saying yeah that that that job it typically is joined with set well back into her to stay at least was joined with some other job you know Anthony Eden was foreign minister and leader of the house of Commons for a time under Churchill so you you you back a lease back in those days you got two jobs and it yeah I don't know if that Jacob Rees Mogg only job I agree with you that that is an inspired choice and on brexit Boris it's been very hard line in his first few days when we come back from break going to talk about what happens when there is a they call it a shuffle this one was called a decapitation and I'm a bigger change in one day than any intraparty swap at number ten has ever seen that's kind of remarkable isn't Larry the mall you know and he he's no respecter of persons for remaining years can't it's at a southern through every academic institution in America what if someone had data toward what if the president could come in and fire everyone in Congress or the president a college could come in and fire everyone and I know of one person who did it Dr Albert Mohler at the southern Baptist theological seminary in Louisville I believe he did it once and I have never heard of it except Boris Johnson last week we come back from break we'll talk about what he did why he did it and what it means for Europe I think it's the greatest thing that has happened to Great Britain since.

Frank Gannon had worked for Randolph Churchill for a while when he was getting his PhD at Oxford in pursuing a degree in Great Britain have you cross paths with Frank no I eight weeks James short notes years ago and you know he knew Martin Gilbert way back then and I he knew of him from Martin Gilbert but now I don't know him at some point we'll have to arrange for you to me that he and I talked British politics on this coast and you and I talked on the on the east coast and I think it's edifying for Americans to know about it because we are derived from this system but our framers did not want this system and in a not show where it why did we not want a parliamentary democracy in America well you you you the the source of the parliamentary democracy in America is not like the source of government as her in Britain is not like the source of government because parliamentary democracy developed out of monarchy it took a long time and you know it because the head off king and depose another one but eight the king had the authority and then the yeah the first parliamentary gestures were the lord's Steve strong Merrin who also controlled land having you know a body to get together and talk and advise the king and then you know the society grew and they included the common people didn't want to be involved well we didn't you know you couldn't you know there was I mean look first well in in Britain the first election in which everybody every adult voted in Britain with nineteen twenty eight that is pretty remarkable yeah and and and and and and it is what it is eighteen seventy five they were still narrow franchises and rotten boroughs which means boroughs that nobody lives in and so that lord who controls the borough gets really appointed member of parliament there was you know in other words they came to all of this after we did and and you know well after and then so they're developing along the it's called pathway evolution they go in a different direction but our framers do not want the executive mixed up with the legislature and and that in in that they were right and a and my opinion and they have the as I have the sense of Winston Churchill who always interpreted the British political system not as Walter Bagehot interprets it you know he cabinet government is his deal and he's the dominating commentator on the British constitution from you know the time he wrote in the late nineteenth century through in nineteen fifty is that is that the church will never went along with that what Churchill thought was we have a system of separation of powers we eat in the house of Commons pick the executive and then we watch their every move like a hawk and we debate them every week and and so everybody realizes cause separation of powers is is born in the human nature itself according to James Madison in what respect are we not are we all created equal you know not high not wait not smart not anything but we're all above the animals and below the angel yes and so we have to have laws and those who make the laws also have to be controlled and the first device for doing that is representation the words we have to elect them and the second device is the separation of powers and so the founders and absorb that from you know from great writing you know especially Montesquieu who was an inspiration to them on this particular point in that the most important author on this subject and so they wanted to divide the powers well I wanted to do that too and sort of had an interpretation of the British constitution the show that they were divided but when the power changes in Great Britain it is not like the United States it changes completely in the form of a person when a prime minister falls and is replaced by prime minister that prime minister goes to the head of the table at number ten and what powers to they have Dr well that's true and we we talk about debates the other day that that has been changed by television because what what the prime minister was was the first among equals and that is to say at the end of a you know you know first of all the executive action is delegated to the to the cabin and in the cabinet does control what's debate in the house of Commons until the members get mad and then they take it back from when that happens commonly by the way they're always worried what the what the members think if your once in Churchill and prime ministers he was twice you've got a guy in the parliament in the second premiership it was George Harvey watch and if your travel around the world say you know fight the war he's right news memos every day about what goes on in the house of Commons that day so they are paying attention they have to well it is but it but so what more if if this were sixty years ago they would sit down have a cabinet meeting and he would he would have to appoint his cabinet from people who commanded respect in the house of Commons so that air sorry in his party in the house of Commons so that he could be when when about of his party members in the house to be the leader of the party which is what makes you prime minister shin the leader of the house of Commons is not the prime minister but he's a member of the government we have a new leader of the house of Commons in Jacob Rees Mogg which is I think a terrific development but to Churchill ever serve as the leader of the house no so it's a one job he did not happen well it it it's yeah and that's a the that that job it typically is joined with set well back into her to stay at least was joined with some other job you know Anthony Eden was foreign minister and leader of the house of Commons for a time under Churchill so you you you back a lease back in those days you got two jobs and eight yeah I don't know if that Jacob Rees Mogg only job I agree with you that that is an inspired choice and on brexit Morris's been very hard line in his first few days when we come back from break going to talk about what happens when there is a they call it a shuffle this one was called the decapitation and I'm a bigger change in one day than any intraparty swap at number ten has ever seen that's kind of remarkable isn't Larry the mall you know and he he's no respecter of persons for remaining years can't it's an insider through every academic institution in America what if someone had data toward what if the president could come in and fire everyone in Congress or the president the college could come in and fire everyone and I know of one person who did it Dr Albert Mohler at the southern Baptist theological seminary in Louisville I believe he did it once and I have never heard of it except Boris Johnson last week we come back from break we'll talk about what he did why he did it and what it means for Europe I think it's the greatest thing that has happened to Great Britain since Margaret.

Larry eight weeks sixty years two days one day
