Slow Joe Biden

"Okay, now let me begin by giving the president the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he meant every Sunday morning. Because I'm here to tell you, Joe Biden was not a daily communicant at his high school and college years. I'm just here to tell you that. Not a daily communicant. Those people are special. I want them all to pray for me. Thank you. They're better Catholics than I am by a lot. But I know what the double dip is. I've lived the double dip. The double dip is on, if you're a Catholic and you're also attending a separate church, fetching mister Hewitt as a Presbyterian Presbyterian, and I had to do both. But I am a Catholic Catholic, and I go to the Presbyterian Church. That meant this weekend, 5 o'clock mass, and it meant 9 a.m. 5 o'clock miles on Saturday and 9 a.m. mass on 9 a.m. Presbyterian services on Sunday. And that's fine. That's a double dip. I don't doubt that Joe Biden double dipped on occasion. I have in the black jerk. Maybe a half dozen times in 66 years, I've been to a black church service. Maybe he did a lot of that when he was 22. I doubt it. I really do doubt it. I doubt it a lot. I certainly know, I just, it's not plausible that Joe Biden is a daily communicant. It just isn't. So will the media be following up on that? I don't know, but what's it tell you about the president? Slow Joe Biden is in firm. And you know it, and I know it, and he is like, I'm going to be in 20 years. When I'm 86,

How Liberal Christianity Invaded the Catholic Priesthood

"My Catholic high school was entirely taken over by heretical post Catholics of the kind who today are hanging rainbow flags in churches. And in not just in Catholic churches, but United methodist churches and Lutheran and Presbyterian churches and episcopal churches. Liberal Christianity had invaded the ranks of the Catholic priesthood and of the Catholic bishops. What I always say was the priesthood became dominated by the gays who weren't smart enough to work directly for the Democratic Party, couldn't dance, couldn't sing wouldn't have a career on Broadway, but they wanted to live in the palace like the Disney Princess, they always secretly knew that they were. So they signed up for the Catholic priesthood. And they got ordained and they got made bishops. We had hoped that Pope John Paul the second and Pope Benedict would clean these people out. They created the sex abuse crisis and they covered it up. They tried to stop the church from fighting for unborn life. And instead, they wanted to support groups like Black Lives Matter, they created something called the Catholic campaign for human development, which was invented by Saul alinsky, which was designed to turn the Catholic Church into a leftist tool of radical social change. They replaced traditional Christianity with squishy, leftist politics, and sexual libertinism.

Eric Clarifies His Affiliation With the Episcopal Church

"Somebody writes in and says, Eric, after listening to a few of your interviews and looking into your book letter to the American church, I can not help but ask about your affiliation with the Episcopal Church. According to various sources, including Wikipedia, you've attended the Episcopal Church, you've encouraged American churches to speak out and take political positions on the various social issues that you may view as evil, the Episcopal Church has done just that, but not in the way one would expect from a Christian church. The Episcopal Church recently resolved, quote unquote, that the 80th general convention calls for the Episcopal Church to advocate for access to gender affirming care in all forms, social medical or any other and at all ages. Transgender medical procedures in all forms and at all ages are being promoted by the Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Church also wrote quote resolved that the Episcopal Church recognizes that access to abortion is a key element in preserving the health, independence, and autonomy of those who can bear children, otherwise known as women, what say you. Well, listen. While I was attending an Episcopal Church, which is some years ago, I was doing so knowing that the Episcopal Church generally has gone off the rails. And when they say things like this, this is lunacy. This is anti Christian. It's wrong on every level. So I have never been an advocate for the Episcopal Church. I have been a member of an Episcopal Church here in New York City. I mean, I haven't for many years, but the point is that, you know, just because you attend a church doesn't mean you agree with everything that's going on there. So yeah, I don't know. Sometimes Wikipedia is like, I don't know why it even mentions that I went to a physical church. I've also been to Presbyterian churches and Pentecostal churches and so it's kind of funny. But I agree with what this person says. I mean, I'm horrified by the direction and the preposterous insane statements of the Episcopal Church and many mainline denominations. So thanks for that question.

Abdu Murray Describes Arguing for Islam

"I want to go back again to how you went from arguing for Islam and against the Trinity and against Christianity. What happened in that in the course of your life? So during the course of this time, I was engaging with people on various ideas and I would ask Christians oftentimes. Why are you a Christian? And it was very conversational. I wasn't a Quran thumper or anything. I was just asking them conversationally. Why are you a Christian? And they would often college in high school. This is in high school and into college. Mostly started really into college as well. But I'm asking them this question. And they would answer questions. They would answer like, well, I guess I'm a Presbyterian because we go to the Presbyterian Church on Christmas and Easter, so I'm a pescetarian, and they've had that little lilt in the end of their voice. And I'm like, is that a question or an answer? I'm not even sure you know. And so I would respond by saying basically something along the lines of this is like tradition is the reason. So your trusting, the destiny of your eternal soul to a worldview, someone else thought through. Did you think through it and all yourself? And the answer was usually no. Of course not. And then I'd say, well, I thought it through for you. And here's 15 reasons why you're wrong. And most of them had no idea how to respond, but there were a couple of people who were fairly annoying who knew how to respond to it. And they were annoying because they were jerks. So maybe one or two. But for the most part, I'm a debater at heart. I'm an advocate. If I think something's true and right, I advocate for it. But I'm also competitive. I like to win. And these guys were good at this. And they didn't just roll over and die. So I had to take their responses seriously. So I began to study Christianity, got a good dose of both conservative side and a liberal side in terms of form criticism redaction criticism, biblical criticism, the theology stuff. And I would use the more liberal stuff in order to sort of show Christians, oh, don't you know your Bible has been changed and you didn't always used to believe this stuff and here's the differences in it. I was wrong, but I thought I was right because I had all these highfalutin people standing behind me on this.

Laguna Woods Shooter Was a China Communists Sympathizer

"Details on the California church shooting Sunday have now come up. Turns out it's a chai calm sympathizer. That's right. A fan of the Chinese Communist Party went and shot up the Geneva Presbyterian Church in laguna Woods. He also brought explosives. It could have been far worse than the one dead and 5 wounded. Doctor John Chang, a physician, is a hero. He ran at him, it took a bullet, doctor Cheng died, but sufficiently disturbed the killer that the other parishioners, including the pastor, were able to hit him with chairs, knock him down, tie him up, take his two guns and not allow him to shut off the explosives.

It was started by people in the associate reform Presbyterian Church with two goals and two focus one is to train a people to be servants of the lord in the church. And then others to provide a liberal arts education for people in this general area and that was an important way back in the beginning, South Carolina in the 1830s.

"Became an anchoring force. And catherine or katie's life. Though she was never taught to read or write she became well versed in the bible as a young teenager. Katie began attending a local presbyterian church. It was a largely scottish denomination and katie soon. Made an impression on isabella. graham isabella was a scottish. Born philanthropist and the founder of a school for girls when katie was around sixteen years. Old isabella graham bought her freedom for two hundred dollars. Katie was initially given six years to work off the debt but isabella later agreed to eleven months of work for one hundred dollars. Isabella's son-in-law raised the other half of the money by the age of eighteen. Katie was free. She soon married and had two children. The both died in infancy to support herself. Katie began making cakes but she soon became increasingly concerned about the children she saw on the street. The devastation from the revolutionary war along with the huge influx of immigrants created dire levels of poverty throughout new york. That was especially true in lower manhattan. Where katie had spent much of her life in seventeen ninety. Three katie began gathering children from the streets on sundays for religious instruction. They met at her home at fifty one warren street. The reverend from her church soon heard of her classes. He offered her space in a spare room of his new congregation on murray street. That's actually the street i live on. Now it's believed that katie's was the first sunday school in new york city over the course of her katie took in forty eight children. Some she rescued from the city's poor houses others from their families. She would raise them herself or help. Get them placed in better situations. Katie never had much money herself having spent it all on her children but she had an endless supply of prayers and defeat

"In spiritual matters. They're elevated and given the weight of divine authority so that the tradition becomes a commandment and a violation of the tradition is not just an infraction or a faux pas. It becomes a thin So Jesus is telling us you're dishonoring God. Putting the traditions of men above the word of God. Second, Jesus is telling them that their criticism undermines the mission of the kingdom. He says, thus making void the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down and many such things you do. You see, Israel was not just a nation. It was not just another tribe or group of connected related people. Israel was a nation with a mission that is to say they were a people with a purpose and the mission of Israel was to be a holy nation and the royal priesthood. As the Apostle Peter says it this way. But you are chosen race, a royal priesthood a holy nation of people for God's own possession. Listen to this, so that so that you may proclaim the Excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Israel's whole reason for existence. The reason they were chosen as God's people was to declare the truth of God to the nations. They were to be the light of the world. A living witness to a loving God. That was their mission. Recently, I've been reading a book about leadership and mission by John Kaiser. Kaiser says that that every game Has an object. Every game has boundaries. So, for example, in soccer, the object is to score the most points by kicking the ball into the goal. The boundaries are the rules the out of bounds lines that defined the field, the clock and the rules that say, for example, you can't touch it with your hands. You can only touch it with your feet. They help to make the game move forward, and they keep all the players from getting injured. The object of the game. However, is to score points. The boundaries. Keep the game moving. The problem with the Pharisees was that they were so obsessed with the boundaries. But they forgot the mission. They forgot the object. Listen to those words again. This is not just about being wholly and royal superior to everybody else. The mission of Israel is to tell people about what God has done. It's about communicating the Kingdom of God and how the mission of the church is building on the mission of Israel to take the good news to all people. The mission. The object is to reach the nations with the good news of God. We can't confuse that with the boundaries. Here's the problem. The Pharisees were only focused on the boundaries and because the Pharisees were focused only on the boundaries. The mission. Was distorted. Jesus gave an example in verses nine through 12, he says. You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition for Moses said, honor your father and your mother and whoever reviles father and mother must surely die, and he gave an example and let me paraphrase it this way, he said. You are giving to charity. As an excuse not to take care of your elderly parents. That's what that whole section right there means You are giving to charity deferring your gift so that you don't have to give it to your parents later. Take care of them later. You see how insidious that is. They were using the law of God. To do evil rather than to do good, and Jesus says, and many such things you do. In other words. I'm just getting started. I could give you a million other examples. The problem was that the Pharisees were majoring in the minors. And in their desire to retain the familiar they've lost all sense of proportion and perspective, making the human interpretation of the law bigger than the law itself. Using their limited perspective to bind the conscience. And to find the truth of God. They lost their focus on the mission and focused on the minutia. And Jesus said You're distorting the mission of God. Manipulation of the law of God. You're doing that with your interpretations. You are abusing the boundaries that God.

"A whole ecosystem of life. Small C. It is not inconsequential. It's immeasurably important into similarly is significant for us today because it teaches us The significance of small beginnings. That give birth to large kingdom becoming So let's get a little bit deeper. What is the Kingdom of God? This growing mustard plant. It's like it. The Kingdom of God can be simply defined as this. It's the rule of God, by the word of God over the people of God in the place of God. Nowhere in Scripture. Do we first see the Kingdom of God ruling by his lips over his people and the place where he has set them because that place is the Garden of Eden. Where God ruled over all creation and even his creatures, Adam and Eve until they rejected his word. And they believe the word of the enemy. More foolish. Then the rookie pitcher. Believe the word of the coach was humanity that believe the word of the enemy. And more significant than losing a baseball game. Humanity was kicked out of the place that God had for them. To flourish under his beneficial rule. And the rest of Scripture is this nomadic journey? This sojourn as God's people seeking to be reestablished in God's place, where they can live with him is King. And the closest that they get in the Old Testament. This reality is the land of Palestine. That's where Jerusalem was The Ark of the Covenant came the temple was built and God ruled over his people. And through his word, his people flourished when they rejected his word. Repeat. They were exiled not from the garden, but from the land of Palestine into foreign hands. They experienced defeat because they believe the word of their culture. The word of the enemy. Word of imposter Kings. And in the New Testament, we see the word made flesh himself. Jesus Christ, who comes as King and reestablish his place? Not any geographical area like the Garden of Eden or the Land of Palestine, but the place the soil of human hearts. The body of Christ becomes the place where the people of God can flourish under the word of God. Worshiping him by celebrating the rule of God. In his body. You don't believe me. Let's look at what Colossians 1 13 to, 14 says. Paul writes that he God has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us where into the kingdom of his beloved son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins for by him. All things were created in heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether Thrones or Dominions of rulers or authorities, all things Were created through Jesus and for Jesus and he is before all things and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body. The church you see, the king of creation is the king of redemption. He's the head of the church, and that's the place where God rules by his word. It is no insignificant reality that we worship God by sitting under the authority of his word and allowing it to interpret our lives. So that we can live for his glory. Now we know too that one day the fullness of the Kingdom of God will come. We live in an already of the not yet that there will be a place The New heavens and the new Earth. We're all the old order is gone and the new order has come. There will be no more sin. No more rebelling and the word of God will rule over the people of God and humans will flourish. And the redeemed creation. But for now, the kingdom of God, we must notice the rule of God. By the word of God over the people of God. In the place of God, This is the kingdom, and it has small beginnings. And it will become huge. Now. Did you know that the first promise of redemption of a return to place where God can rule his people? It came in the promise of a seed. Did you know that? If you go back to Genesis three, when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, they were kicked out of the garden and God made a promise. He made a promise to the enemy that he would be defeated that his head would be crushed. By whom? The seed, the offspring of the woman who was Eve In her seat in her offspring would defeat the enemy. Who had deceived his people. This small seed Is the actual key to the narrative of all of Genesis. And we follow the lineage of this woman. And we get Abraham and Sarah in the first time you meet Sarah and Scripture in Genesis Chapter 11 verse 30. She is described as.

"Withers. The flower fades but the word of our God endures forever. Before we study the word of the Lord, where you join me and going to the Lord of the word together in prayer. Let's pray, Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you that you are King. I pray that by the power of your holy spirit that you would help us to see what that truly means. Give us ears on our heart that we may live more faithfully and fruitfully for your glory. We pray In Jesus' name. Amen. It is significant that in a fast moving gospel like Mark Jesus takes 30. What is 34 verses to teach about the Kingdom of God. This is 1/5 of a series of parables that Jesus started teaching while he was on the Sea of Galilee. You can go back to verse one and see that he was teaching too. Very large crowds. And as he was teaching about the Kingdom of God through these parables, he is explicitly revealing mysteries of the kingdom. That's what he says in versus 10. 11. The parables that are spoken or to reveal mysteries of the kingdom, and they're intended for people that have ears to hear. Now Jesus is not trying to throw everybody a curveball and confuse everybody. But he is teaching in a way that gives a demarcation for those who are close in proximity to him and can understand Relational E. As opposed to those whose hearts are hard and separated from God, who is King made flesh among them. This is exactly what verse 34 says. If you look down, it says that Jesus did not speak to them without a parable. But privately to his own disciples, he explained everything. You see Jesus meets with his disciples personally so that we inveigh can understand things clearly. The mysteries of the kingdom are clarified in the person who is Jesus, the king and we are compelled even called to have ears that hear that is hearts with ears on It received. This is the point of this whole section of mark beginning at Verse nine, where Jesus says this is the point. That he who has ears. Let him hear. Now this verb to hear, or ears is repeated multiple times all the way through this chapter, even up until Where we study today. 1st 39 13 23 24 34. It's all there because Jesus wants to compel us to have ears that hear Now the ears that hear are directly related to the hearts that receive and it's important that we understand the context of today's parable. So allow me to briefly run through beginning with the parable of the sower. There are four different kinds of soils that received the word of God. The first is a heart that is hard, hard path that doesn't find a place for the word of God to find purchase and there's no Question of what Jesus means Jesus is clear. He is the sewer. He says it explicitly. He is clear. The word of God is the seed. And the path is the soil that receives it or does not in a hard heart is a place where the seed of God's word can find. No purchase. The second heart is an excited heart. You'll remember this heart It is a soil that receives it.

"So much that he gave his own life to prove it. The first soil represents ignorance. Just not knowing what we don't even know. Next. He points to the seeds on the rocky ground, tribulation or persecution. And these are the ones soon on Rocky ground. The ones who when they hear the word immediately receive it with joy. Wasn't this wonderful? But they have no root in themselves and endure it for a while. And then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word immediately, they fall away. So the truth gets to people they hear it. They receive it gladly. At first, they welcome it. At first, they embrace it at first, but then pain or disappointment drives it away. This attacks is at the point where we begin to think of religion in terms of rewards what God's going to give us instead of relationship who God is And what we mean to him. This is the faith that fails when the cost of suffering gets too high. People lose heart and they lose nerve. The things that kill a shallow faith. Can be either serious or they can be trivial and flippant. For example, some people's faith just fades away when faith becomes unfashionable. Yeah, it was exciting last weekend of that retreat, But if I wear my religion on my sleeve, I'll alienate potential clients. I won't be respected or popular or respected among my peers or I'll become irrelevant. In my social circle. People give up Days for all kinds of shallow reasons, But the persecution and tribulation can also be profound and tragic. You know, if God was real, that I wouldn't have lost my job, if God cared, then he would have saved my sister from cancer. If I had not been so public about my faith that my family would not be ostracized and arrested and put in prison. As long as things go our way, God is in his heaven. When suffering comes or the pressure builds. Discipleship is abandoned because the gospel is seen either as the cause of our pain or impotent to stop it. And what happens, people begin to lose their trust in God. They think that either he isn't real that he doesn't care. Whether you can't make a difference. These The.

"It means to use that platform. In a new way for a new purpose. And I want you to notice something else here, too. Christ calls those first disciples to this work absolutely unqualified. They had no education to be disciples that no preparation to be teachers. They had no training. They had no credentials. That would come. But Peter and Andrew and James and John They were disciples, not because they were ready, but because Jesus called them. That's what makes you a disciple. Not your preparation, not your skill set, not your readiness, but his call. That's what makes us disciples they were disciples because, he said, so. And I want you to hear that There is a tremendous amount of grace. In those two words. Follow me. In my opinion, they're even more precious than the words you are forgiven. I mean, those are the words we all want to hear. Jesus Christ, are they not? What the words follow me with these words. Jesus tells us I not only forgive you I not only love you, I trust you. And I want you to be with me in my work. You are a five star recruit and I want you on my team. I love you trust you. This is a kind of kindness. Not only says you're forgiven but says you're valuable. You're capable. You're strong. You're smart. You're imaginative. You're fearfully and wonderfully made. And you are empowered to follow me where I have been and to do what I have done. Where I have gone first, you can follow. I know everyone in this room has a friend or a grandmother or a teacher who at one point made the distinction between can and may because you were staying in correctly. You would say I can't do something She would say you may do something or vice versa. Jesus is not saying that you may follow him. He's saying you can Follow.

Because this calling has a purpose. It has meaning it has direction and the reason Jesus said. Follow me. And I will make you become fishers of men. What does it mean to be a Fisher of men? I mean, there are so many old preacher illustrations, so many old analogies to fishing in the evangelism ministry and things like that. And I just decided to cut to the chase and get right to the heart of it. Instead of using an analogy of a fisherman. Just give you an example of someone who I believe was a Fisher of men. Well, just a few years ago, I was privileged to G O to the birthday party to attend the birthday party of a 94 year old woman named Ellen Smith. And there were about 40 people at this birthday party. They ranged from ages 85 to 18 months. What you need to know about Ellen is that for At least 75 of her 94 years. Ellen Smith had been pouring her life out to what she referred to as the young people. Now that always meant young people relative to her age at the time. And so there were people that she was referring to as the young people of this party who were well into their seventies. But she had served as a Sunday school teacher. She has started with the youth group leader as a Children's choir directors. A choir director is a missionary. All these things she had done all these things, and throughout her life, she had shared her humor her love her talents or music or community spirit. Her activism. She shared her time. And most of all, she had shared her love of Jesus Christ with generation after generation of people. One.

David Price on Colonel John Haslet's World

"David price. Thank you for joining me on the american revolution. Podcast thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. you're here today. Because britain a new book. About colonel john hazlet. What prompted you to write a book about john has let at. How important is he to the story of the american revolution. Well the genesis of this book. Mike was my first literary effort rescuing the revolution on sung patriot. Heroes in their ten. Crucial days are america's war for independence. John has was one of several individuals who i profiled in that book in a series of graphical vignettes which focused primarily on the contributions that each of these people need to patriot caused during what was perhaps the ten most inspirational days in american history. And perhaps the most pivotal moment in the war for independence. Now why did i choose hizbullah. Well you know. His name kept popping up in various things that i was reading most especially in a hackett fischer's pulitzer prize winning work. Washington's crossing which is the bible for people like me who are historical interpreters or so case graphs historical interpreters. I washington crossing historic park. That's a joke. By the way you have to read that book and you have to have a decent command. Say the material in order to be able to give a tour there under the auspices of a fringe group. So the more read about him. The more i was impressed by what he did. And and the kind of character he displayed in the course of his revolutionary service. So around the time that. I was reading that book and i guess the germ if you will of the seed when he's right. Metaphor here have been planted. The perhaps do something a little more elaborate on has land. And i came across the book by fred walters. John has led a useful one. Which far as i know. That was the only book that about him. It's a self published work came out. I believe in two thousand and five. Mary engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely. But it's written in the form largely not entirely but largely in the form of a historical novel. There's a good deal of well. Frankly fictional material an air imaginary dialogue scenes useful information to improve to be very helpful to me my initial reaction after reading. That was well. Fred has the subject covered pretty well. And i don't need to pursue curl has let any further the more i thought about it. The more i felt it deserved an effort by someone to craft more conventional kind of a non fiction work about curl and his delaware regiment now. I should add parenthetically that since his first book. Fred walters did polish. What i gather is a more conventional work and non fiction account. Biography of the kernel which i believe is entitled. John has lots eric journey. But it was published exclusively in a kindle edition. I decided to go ahead and pursue this idea of trying to write a book. Hamlet just to see you know when i was starting out i was just with the mindset of well. Let's see how this goes and what looks like and it wasn't challenge to produce something. That is a book length. Because as i pointed out in the preface to the book. There's not a lot known about his pre-revolutionary war life. We don't even know exactly when it was born is a someone about whom an agent is to in the preface or introduction. We don't even know exactly what he looks like. Physical descriptions of him but there's no authentic rep visual representation of inviting eighteen artists. Not by anyone. Who was alive when he was only two images that. I'm aware which i discussed under book. Which is the coverage. The stanley arthurs painting a reversal of the image of has lead in the stanley arthurs painting that hangs in the delaware public archives building. But in any case i could push ahead with the project so ultimately when it became was an effort to inter we three things one is the has the biography. One is the story of his seventeen seventy six regimen the first incarnation of delaware regimen with a little bit about the proposed hasler regimen is the reconstituted regimen in non truncated form that was created in seventeen seventy seven after his death and then a last name of courses or general one. It's quitting this whole context of the seventeen seventy six campaign. washington's army the new york and the campaign. Which of course culminates in what we call the ten crucial days campaign from december twenty fifth. Seventeen seventy six through january. Seventeen seventy seven. When has what has killed about princeton. The other thing. I think that was pushing me to do. This was at some point. When i was writing the second book it occurred needed. It would be a neat idea. If i could do a trilogy on the ten crucial days. I'm not aware that any other offer done. So what distinguishes has led from anyone else in terms of his contribution to the patriot. Cause well he created one of the elite regiments and continental army in seventeen. Seventy six as i believe the largest regiment in the army in the early months of that year they started recruiting january by me erupt. Almost eight hundred men. They were full uniformed. And i think they were. Perhaps the only regimen in the army that could make claimed for uniform to fully armed under has let's to of his agitate thomas holland formerly of his britannic majesty's army day molded these this forced into a efficient elite fighting unit. Bouffe or get too much into the details of the door blues. I wanna ask one thing you said. We don't know much about hamlet's prewar life. We do that. He came from northern ireland right and that he settled in kent county delaware. Do we have any information about why he left ireland and why he settled in delaware. Well he may have had personal indoor political reasons leaving ulster when he did his wife died his first wife got about five years before he came to the colonies which he did in seventeen fifty seven or thereabouts. Minor standing as they may have personal issues between him and members of the congregation. Her guests may have had an emotional toll on him. Such that believe she dialed probably died in childbirth so he was left with a young daughter. This may have taken a toll on him and as such impacted his ability to perform his ministerial duties. And that may lead to some ancient. Shall we say between young minister and members of his parish more generally when he came to the colonies. it was in the context of this larger immigration movement. If you will of the scotch-irish from northern ireland to the new world during the early and mid eighteenth century with was because of the harsh economic into the adverse economic conditions under which many of them live in the restrictions rather onerous restrictions have been imposed on him by british policy towards ireland towards the presbyterian church that was regarded as unwelcome adversary adversaries. You will to the established anglican church. So i think there's a plausible logger be made. That was part of. let's motivation. Maybe dominant part of his motivation.

"All over Judea to be baptized by John And John became, in a sense a very popular guru, a very popular person. Guilt is so pervasive. It's so real. It's so crippling and consuming. People need ways to deal with it. You know, we do have so many toxic habits. So many distractions. So many temptations, So many addictions we carry so much guilt and shame. We feel so much pressure from all of those weights that we just need relief. I'm sure that there were lots of people who came out to see John and they had a sincere confession and humility before God in their hearts, But I'm also sure that there were those people who came out to John because he was the newest celebrity self help guru in town. They believe that he had the easiest way to patch things up with God. They thought that God could not only relieve them of their guilt with this baptism therapy, but that he could give them a get out of hell free card. So why did Jesus come to be baptized? Why did the sinless son of God need to be baptized for the repentance of sins? Wasn't Jesus already blameless? Did he have any guilt? Did he have any sin that he was carrying around? Of course not. The book of Hebrews says that he was like us in every way yet. Without sin, he had no guilt. He was in no danger of hell. So why did Jesus come out to be baptized for two reasons first? Because everything Jesus would ask of his disciples to go through. He went through himself. We're going to get into more depth about this next week. But from his baptisms to his temptations to his conflicts to his compassion to his devotion, his suffering and even his death on the cross. Jesus went First And the book of Hebrews says that since therefore the Children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things that through death. He might destroy the one who has the power of death. You see? Jesus wasn't baptized because he needed repentance. Jesus was baptized because we Need repentance. So Jesus went first. Second Jesus was baptized because Jesus understood that repentance is not just about forgiveness for our sins. It's not just about getting rid of our guilt, giving up the vices and less that would seem so desperately to crave. Repentance is so much more than that. Repentance isn't just about giving away all those things. It's about giving ourselves over to God. The word repentance literally means Change one's heart. Or to change one's way. It's about changing your direction from going this direction away from God to go in this direction toward God. The word repentance literally means to turn around. And it's about someone turning toward him. Turning toward God. It's about taking God seriously. It's about betting our lives on him and putting him in control of the direction of our lives. Sadly, most people have a half baked understanding of repentance. When most people hear the word repent. I think that we're pennant simply means to regret the bad things that you've done to punish yourself to make amends or fix whatever you broke so that you won't end up in hell..

And we began this this celebration last week by studying the gospel of mark and as we go through the year mark is going to give us through this year. Guidebook our direction for understanding what God is calling us to do now, 175 years later, But why are we even go all the way back to the gospel of Mark? To talk about the future of our church. It's because in the Gospel of Mark, we hear the story of Jesus and in the story of Jesus in his story. We hear the origins of our own story. Now. Last week, we looked at the beginning of Mark's Gospel and John the Baptist's mission to prepare the way of the Lord into the wilderness, and we connected John's mission of his church. Admission of our church. As we carry the light of Jesus Christ, the good news of God. Into the wilderness that we enter today. So if you will turn Do Mark Chapter one versus nine through 11. As we turn to the story of the baptism of Jesus bark 19 through 11. Here now with the Lord is saying to the church In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee. Was baptized by John and the Jordan and when he came up out of the water immediately, he saw the heavens being torn apart and the spirit descending on him like a dove and a voice came from heaven. You are my beloved son. And with you. I am well pleased the grass withers and the flower fades, But the word of our God endures forever, Man. I remember several years ago. I was asked to baptize four year old Madison, Bullard and her baby brother, Jack. As we were walking from my office to the sanctuary of the church. A lady walking down the hall commented on Madison's dress. She said, Oh, Madison, you look so pretty today. What a pretty dress. Madison proud if she could be look back up at her, and she said, Thank you. Me and my brother Jack, or about to be Batman ties. Mark begins his gospel with the bat. Montez, um of Jesus. Why? Because in the baptism of Jesus, we learn Something about the identity of Jesus Christ as the son of God. But we also learn about what it means for each of us for you or for me. To be a child of God. Let's take a closer look there. Two things that happen in the baptism of Jesus First Mark tells us that Jesus came up from Nazareth. Be baptized by John in the Jordan River. John, we're told, was proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. What John was doing was extending to people the opportunity to be cleansed to come clean before God and change their ways. He was offering them a spiritually way to deal with their guilt. And Marc says that the people were coming from Jerusalem and all over Judea to be baptized by John And John became, in a sense a very popular guru, a very popular person..

Faith in Times of Plague - Grimk

"This time we're going not too far back just about one hundred years or so back to nine thousand nine hundred. Nineteen and the twentieth century to talk about Francis Grim key. We've talked about him before. On five minutes in Church history he was born in the American south in eighteen fifty as a slave. He was emancipated at the age of fifteen at the end of the civil war. He made his way north studied in Pennsylvania and then he went over to New Jersey and was a student at Princeton theological seminary from eighteen. Seventy five to eighteen seventy eight. The importance of those three years is that they were in fact the last three years that Charles Hodge taught at Princeton so that is to say that grim key was one of the last students of Princeton to have Charles Hodge for all three years of the theology curriculum. Grumpy spent most of his ministry as Pastor of the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church in Washington. Dc. He died in one thousand nine hundred thirty seven well. We've all heard by now of the Spanish. Flu Of Nineteen. Eighteen grim key lived through it and he preached and then published sermon entitled some reflections growing out of the recent epidemic of influenza that afflicted our city it was preached on November Third Nineteen Eighteen. It is full of all sorts of insight on how a Christian can respond to play. But let me just focus on two issues with you one and I'll just read what grinky has to say. Another thing has impressed me during the epidemic is brought out in a way that is very gratifying. The high estimation in which the Christian churches held in the community the large place which it really occupies in the thought of the people the fact that for several weeks we have been shut out from the privileges of the sanctuary has brought home to us as never before. What the Church has really meant to us? We hadn't thought perhaps very much of the privilege while it lasted but the moment it was taken away we saw at once. How much it meant to us. One of the gratifying things to me. During the scourge has been the sincere regrets that I have heard expressed all over the city by numbers of people at the closing of the churches. The theatergoers of course have regretted the closing of the theatres. I do not know whether the children or the teachers have regretted the closing of the schools or not now. I'll just interject here. They didn't have online classes to move towards school. Just simply shut down so my hunches. Students and teachers probably didn't mind much but then he goes on to say but I do know that. Large numbers of people have regretted the closing of the churches. I hope that now that they are opened again that we will all show our appreciation of their value by attending regularly upon their services. It would be a great calamity to any community to be without the public ministrations of the sanctuary. So there is saying one of the things he learned is the preciousness of us he goes on to say Sabbath keeping and joining together in fellowship together. With God's people in God's house during the Spanish flu the churches were shut down and they couldn't worship together and so we're experiencing that today well as grumpy makes his way through the end of the sermon. He talks about faith and this is what he has to say if faith is to help us if it is to put. It's great strong arms under us if we are to feel it sustaining power. Under such distressing circumstances. It must be a real living faith in God he goes on to say is a good time for those of us who are Christians to examine ourselves to see exactly how it is with us whether the foundation upon which we are building is a rock foundation whether our faith is really resting upon Christ the solid rock or not. Well there's Francis Kripke reminding congregation in one thousand nine hundred eighteen of faith in times of

Re-Thinking Church Missions

"All through the history of the Church of Christ. There has been a ceaseless struggle to maintain the truth that is a quote from Alan McRae Twentieth Century Presbyterian Churchmen and Biblical scholar. He learned that quote firsthand. He was with J Gresham Machen as a student at Princeton Seminary in the late nineteen twenty s and when Mason left Princeton in one across the Delaware River over to Philadelphia to found Westminster Theological Seminary. Mcrae went along with them and a few years later in one thousand nine thirty six when Mason. Who was ousted from the Presbyterian church U S and he formed a new church the Orthodox Presbyterian church well McRae went along with him again. So what was the issue in the Nineteen Thirties and specifically in nineteen thirty six mccray is about this ceaseless struggle to maintain the truth. Will broadly speaking. The issue was liberalism and cultural progressivism This had been at work in the Presbyterian Church USA and many other denominations as well at the time from the eighteen nineties on through the roaring twenties. Mason battled it at Princeton and he was battling it. Within the denomination narrowly. Speaking the issue was missions in nineteen thirty to the fall of nineteen thirty two. A report was issued entitled Rethinking Missions. This report was then published fully in nineteen thirty three no fewer than seven volumes published by Harper again under the title rethinking missions. This project was all funded by John. D Rockefeller it had representatives from seven key positions on mission boards. In seven denominations participated. This document had two major parts. One was based on a fact finding mission and just spoke of the state of missions and the conditions of places three places in particular China and India. Japan were studied the second part raised new ways. That mission should be done and challenge the old ways that missions was being done in a nutshell. What this document wanted to promote was to advance spiritual idealism social brotherhood Economic Welfare and Cultural Unity. The rethinking part means that to think of missions as simply the Great Commission the Proclamation of the Gospel to every tribe to every nation that is too narrow and in fact has been wrong headed we need a different mission. Different approach that represents the realities of the twentieth century so missions needs to be rethought well. This deeply troubled J. Gresham mation. He saw in this and denial of the Gospel and he couldn't believe that not only did his own mission board of the Presbyterian Church U s not only did it not refute this document but it had key representatives. Who are part of it and were promoting it. This was also the time of the missionary. Pearl Buck in nineteen thirty two. She had just won the Pulitzer Prize. She was a very significant figure in American culture and she was a Presbyterian missionary. Who denied the Atonement of Christ the Deity of Christ the authority of Scripture and all of this just perplexed Mason and so he challenged his denomination. He wrote a one hundred and ten page pamphlet to go along with an overture that he introduced in his presbytery and he wanted the Presbyterian Church to refute this document. They didn't and so. In one thousand nine hundred thirty three he formed the independent board of Presbyterian foreign missions that eventually led to his ouster from his denomination and so in Nineteen ninety-six once he was defrocked he just formed a new denomination the Orthodox Presbyterian church six months later January one nineteen thirty seven. Mason died but his commitment to the church and his commitment to the Gospel was evident there in that action of standing against the tide of his denomination and standing for the Gospel. He did not want to rethink missions but rather in the twentieth century he wanted to reaffirm the mission of the Church and the Great Commission. Well that was mentioned in one thousand nine hundred eighty three. And I'm Steve Nichols and thanks for joining us. For Five minutes purchased

June 17th, 1765 in Williamsburg Virginia

"On this episode. I'm once again on location in colonial oneal Williamsburg in Virginia last time we were together. We were outside of Bruton Parish Church a congregation that was founded an Anglican congregation Gatien that was founded in sixteen seventy four Williamsburg was founded as a town in sixteen thirty eight and of course Jamestown Jamestown was the original capital but in sixteen ninety nine the capital of the colony was moved to here and it held that capital all the way until seventeen eighty when and during the revolutionary war it was deemed that Richmond would be a safer place well we are interested in the year seventeen sixty five in fact a date in seventeen sixty five on June seventeen seventeen sixty five a group of seventeen men got together and petitioned Russian the court here and Williamsburg. This is what they requested. We intend to make use of a house in the city of Williamsburg situated on part of a lot belonging to Mr George Davenport as a place for the public worship of God. According to the Protestant Austin dissenters of the Presbyterian denomination well. This is an Anglican colony. The Anglican Church is the the established church and these seventeen presbyterians wanted an authorized legal Presbyterian church to be established they actually actually added a ps two it and the PS was this as we are unable to obtain a settled minister. We intend this place at present only for occasional worship when we have opportunity to hear any legally qualified minister well. The city of Williamsburg granted their request. They established their church perch. It was just a small little modest meeting houses. They mentioned they're not even able to have a settled minister. I walked it off and it measures about twenty two defeat by thirty six feet and in this very simple meeting house these presbyterians met member how Paul ends Romans by listing listing off a number of people well here are seventeen names William Smith John Connolly Walter Lenox James Holdcroft Robert Burke Nicholson John orchiston James Douglas James Atherton William Gemmell Edward Cummins Thomas Skinner Daniel Hoy John Bell James Smith William Brown John Morris and Charles Hankins. These were carpenters vendor's craftsman. Some of them worked in the courthouse. These were the seventeen who started this church on June. Seventeen seventeen sixty five these presbyterians came out of the great awakening. They were a new side Presbyterian Rian Church that meant that they were not only in favor of the great awakening but many of these were likely converted during the great awakening some of them might have been in converted under the Ministry of George Whitfield. Remember that sermon that we heard a paragraph from by Steve Lawson. Some of them might have been converted by I Samuel Davies Samuel Davies was a Presbyterian Missionary Tha Virginia his first wife died and his second wife was Jane Holt. Her family was a prominent family here Williamsburg and so Samuel Davies made many visits to the capital city not only to see his in laws but also to petition before the Virginia legislature and before the Virginia governor for Religious Freedom and no doubt bolstered these presbyterians that were here in Williamsburg one of those ministers who came occasionally to preach actually to those ministers who came occasionally here to preach once they've established their meeting eating house were trained by Samuel Davies well.
