"Discussing Y. Two K. as the year two thousand approached many worried that the computer programs that keep our world running and banks airlines and government would be disrupted by a technical glitch in the midst of the growing public fear several fringe groups took advantage of the pandemonium to make predictions on an apocalyptic scale fears about y two. K began as early as the mid eighties because computer storage at the time was costly. Many programs recorded dates using only the last two digits of the year for example. Nineteen eighty-five was simply stored as eighty five. This meant that the final two zero in the year two thousand looked exactly like those in the year. Nineteen hundred to software. Applications Tech experts warned that the glitch could result in confusion and system crashes worldwide wants. The date changed on January. First though the problem was identified well in advance. Many industries did not bother investing in solutions until the late nineties. The last minute moves to prevent impending disaster led many to worry. The problem would not be fixed in time. Doomsday's capitalized on the hysteria. Fanning the flames of paranoia to advance their own agendas. It particular libertarian. Writers like Kenneth W Royce and Gary North warned that government social programs in the United States like social security could be at risk rice even wrote a book called surviving. Doomsday in it. He advised readers to stock up on food and water in advance of a worldwide economic chateaux. Meanwhile Gary North made similar claims on his website in one of his posts subtitled the year the earth standstill. He predicted months before January. First two thousand. The world's stock markets will have crashed. Who IS GOING TO LEAVE? His money in his bank thinks his banks computer is not reliable. Other figures. Foreign that the Y. Two K. bug was the beginning of a religious Armageddon Reverend Jerry. Falwell proclaimed y two K may be God's instrument to shake this nation to humble the station he also stated that the event could start a revival that spreads over the face of the earth before the rapture of the church. No matter what form the fearmongering took it succeeded in amplifying the messages of these fringe groups. It allowed them to peddle their books and videotapes to profit in the short term because the Y2K glitch was a legitimate. Technical Concern. Caught like figures. Were able to seize on cherry-picked statements from experts and misrepresent the scale of the problem. Naturally there're prophecies all fit exactly within their existing beliefs hardcore Christian groups saw the coming day of reckoning as Biblical radically. Communists pointed to the problem as verification of their distrust of the government by the time the clock struck midnight on January. First two thousand. They had already gotten what they wanted. Their products were sold and their public. Profiles were augmented. Of course there are warnings. Were soon proven to be fraudulent. Throughout the world there were nothing more than a few minor glitches and computer problems as the year. Two thousand rolled around public. Fear quickly subsided. Some of those in the fringe. Groups were disavowed but figures like Falwell continued to have considerable public influence in later years. Like many cults the Y2k doom stairs seized on existing public anxiety and targeted vulnerable individuals many mixed technical language with religious rhetoric to confuse their audiences hopefully in the midst of the next crisis. We can learn to tune out dishonest alarmism and prevent opportunists from making a quick buck by stoking paranoia.

"Become in my opinion a mockery in the modern world and i was struck by watching watch part of the series of the crown that was produced by net flicks and i was really struck at the inception of the reign of queen elizabeth how the her her predecessor i think it was at word the guy who was was was bound to be king at that time he was called but in the in the land of britain he abdicated the throne because of his professed desire to marry a divorced now i don't know what the circumstances of her divorce were but i was struck by seeing that in the crown and then to compare that against the news from this last year of two thousand eighteen where the next royal marriage is set to occur has occurred between a divorce and yet nobody including seemingly nobody in britain british society wants to take a stand against that and yet that was the very reason why queen elizabeth came to power so i don't think i'm in the minority i may be in the minority position i am in the minority position today i certainly seem to be that but by all accounts i look around at the mainstream protestant position and i don't see much success in maintaining marriages under any ground even if we grant an exception for divorce perhaps we granted so called exception for abandonment i don't hear any protestant i i am not aware of many protestant churches who would even take a book like ray sutton's and try to apply it what i see to the left and right of me is is thousands and thousands of people who trundle into church buildings and trundle out of church buildings with very little applicability of trying to understand even what sutton teaches to their marriage and i see the consequences of that worked out today in marriage is all over the place why no plenty of people those same the same for example those same liberation theologians would happily affirm.

"I guess he keep wrestling indeed i i guess the one one comment just kind of conclude this well let me ask it in the context of a question so preamble to the question throughout history and in recorded history of the bible i'm thinking for example of peter when he was jailed and peter when he was jailed and then the angel came at night and released him so for for poor my non bible reading listeners there's an account written in the book of acts where the apostle peter is thrown into jail by the jewish leaders that day because he was preaching about jesus in the middle of the night the early disciples are praying for peter and an angel appears in peter's jail cell blinds essentially blinds the guards and opens the door peter goes to the house of his friends and there's a quite humorous account recorded in the book of acts where his friends a servant girl within the household comes in opens the door and is so shocked to see peter's face she slams the door in his face and goes back in because she thinks seeing the ghost or his angel meanwhile the people inside go back and open the door and they opened the door so whether it's a biblical account like that one where peter's in jail and he's released by an angel of god from jail or whether it's account like the many miraculous occurrences that are recorded in a place like communist china over last forty years i remember reading called the heavenly man or brother yun recounts a similar account where he is he is jailed in the context of he's jailed for for preaching by the communist government he's many experiences beaten jailed multiple times entirely unjustly but then during one context an angel appears to him while he's in jail literally blinds the eyes of the guard so that he can walk through my memory doesn't the exact number three or four levels of security in the prison and he is transported physically over the walls of the prison where there's a waiting taxi.

"You got your bible in front of it just go read it right into the audience so matthew chapter five seventeen nineteen cracks so jesus jesus speaking and he says that do not think that i have come to abolish the law or the prophets i have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them for truly i say to you heaven and earth pass away not an iota nada dot will pass from the law until all is accomplished therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same we'll be called least in the kingdom of heaven but whoever does them teaches them we'll be called great in the kingdom of heaven for i tell you unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and pharisees you will never enter the kingdom of heaven so you better have more than the book of mark and that's why we do have more than the book of mark that's why we have sixty six books and we have to be willing to study all sixty six books to see in particular topic if there is anything specifically presented in any of those books that applies to the topic at hand in the early church was not in a position to do that but the church certainly has been in a position to do it for the last seventeen hundred years and generally the church prefers not to do it so on that basis i know i think i guess this is an important point obviously it's fundamental in my thing in that same chapter of matthew and this was my beef with sutton's book again is book second chance was on that same chapter of matthew if we drop down to verse thirty one which is one of the two references in matthew jesus is teaching on divorce and remarriage and jesus says this it was also said whoever divorces his wife let him give her a certificate of divorce but i say to you that everyone who divorces his wife except on the ground of sexual immorality makes her commit adultery and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery so in this context then in this was again i guess i'm driving at it which he wrote the editor's introduction to it.

"That doesn't change old testament to new chessmen now what jesus was talking about is that the old testament allow them to divorce a man could divorce his wife not for the violation of a capital crime but because she displays it and that's what upset the disciples and that is a major difference between jesus teaching on the family and most of teaching on the family but he wasn't talking there about crimes would have been divorced by execution talk about what moses did allow was that a wife had displeased her husband and that was not even defined in jesus made to break with that and the disciple said wait a minute how can you have any kind of out can you have any kind of justice in that system who would who would accept that now let's let's push it further if that isn't true tell me what the basis is tell me what the basis has biblically against polygamy because the only passage i can find all the new testament that challenges politic polygamy is indirect in that passage in which women now are going to be protected against husbands who wanna get rid of them that's where you get protection for the wives i don't know any other passage in scripture in which there's a anything like a statement where there is equality and therefore there is not to be a polygamous situation in which one wife subservient to another wife you had it in the old testament you don't have it the new testament this is the passage that i would go to to try to defend the christian concept against bigamy because you're going to be hard pressed to find any other passage in the scriptures in which you can find an attack on bigamy other than this passage in which male and female or brought to equivalence in the marriage bond.

"Do you believe in the public execution of anybody who commits any crime listed as a capital crime in the old testament by which innocent parties gained divorce i think so but okay i'm not sure about the whole list could we restrict it to something but i go to rush uni lists listed it's it's the remember it's on page five four the institute so the reason i think i've been reading institutes for my first for the first time all three of his books you've got well you don't really have to read the first phone and i think bonds kurd out it's the same page i think it's five four and theon and christian ethics depending on which type said version you get he's got the list it's about it's about twenty items okay so you execute anybody who commits those items male or female certainly male well then you don't have to have a divorce the victimized party remarries jesus didn't live in that society jesus lived in a roman society there wasn't any available divorce on that basis so he was trying to deal judicially speaking with what constitutes a divorce if the person has not created a crisis situation for himself by violating one of the capital crimes which would mean it's divorced by execution that's what rush junie talks about what we don't live in that society now frankly i think would probably better if we did but we don't so then the question is on what basis is their divorce in the answer is covenant will death.

"Correct so you struck to the heart of the matter which i will affirm you are absolutely correct i defend i believe in defend for lack of better term against the permanence view of not of not easy divorce but no divorce and here's my kind of deeper structure deeper problem i affirm that there's great value in some of the insight that can be gained from seeing something like the five points of the covenant i love to see a commentator right about the particulars the background of a certain passage or a certain historical cultural thing i that's why one of the reasons why i enjoy reading some of your commentary some of your penalties are books in another himselves on topics that i find very fascinating but that would never have occurred to me but it seems as though to defend covenant theology you the simplicity perhaps the more i think it would be accurate to say the fundamentalist approach to scripture is weakened and i'm not defending a wooden liberalism i'm not trying to defend a wooden fundamentalist approach but when rita passage speaking about divorce and remarriage when jesus says when asked about divorce in matthew nineteen or five when jesus when when the pharisees come to him and say for what reason can amanda voice his wife and jesus responds and says do not read from the beginning guts mainly father and mother and be joined his wife and what god has joined together let not man separate he answered the question and then the follow up question goes on and jesus and he says why then did moses permitted certificate of divorce jesus answers that and he says because of the hardness of your of their of your hearts moses permitted divorce but from the beginning it was not so and there's this this great impact of that from theological perspective that you affirm and defend the doctrine of various doctrines of the enemy and the binding.

"And so rushton and bond and sutton come to the conclusion that if you have certain kinds of practices that would have led to the execution of the of the guilty party under the mosaic law that should allow the breaking of the covenant of marriage because you have to have the principle of victims rights you have to defend the victim not the perpetrator and on that basis you don't split the assets of the family fifty fifty you take everything away from the victim of from the from the perpetrator you transfer that to the victim that should be the principle that you apply not simply in the marriage covenant that's the principle of the church covenant that should be the principle of the civil covenant as well that there have to be negative sanctions imposed and that a breaking of the covenant is the quivalent of covenant death i don't see any way to run a family without that now sure you can do it as we do in the modern world with easy divorce nofault divorce but then it's breaking up the family structure that's what happened that's what happened israel right it was a covenant will divorce that's what the difference is in terms of the covenant theology versus say prema lineal dispensational theology it's the issue of the covenant divorce by god of israel did that take place in eighty seventy or didn't it and the and the systems sort out on the basis of what was the divorce and what is the appropriate sanction for the divorced.

"The version that sutton was working with had been developed by a professor westminster seven area in the nineteen sixties the name meredith kline and he got it from another professor in the nineteen fifties who had worked on a similar similar study his name was george mendenhall but the ancient treaties of the middle east used this structure in what i discovered in sutton worked on others of worked on was that the penatta is structured in terms of these five concepts and certain books of the bible used the five concepts god man law sanctions and time you can't escape the structure certainly you can't escape it in terms of the pentateuch but i think it exists in the book of exodus i think it's basic leviticus it certainly true of deuteronomy david chilton worked done with respect to the book of revelation so you can't escape this basic model so when i have done is to take that basic model this assumption if you get these five points basically correct you have a pretty good handle on whatever it is you're trying to discuss you won't get everything done you can't get everything done but if you don't have any one of those five concepts you're not gonna have any way to analyze accurately a particular social order or economic or and so in terms of economics you've got to have some concept of ownership that's fundamental words who owns the property and then you have the question of service which is the free market principle of serving the consumer you've got to have some concept of law which says your property is going to be defended by law.

"At the time regarded as as peculiar so if you're talking see you run in strange circles and circles you run into not representative of really much of anything if you're talking about mainstream democrats versus mainstream republicans then you're talking about people who have pretty much the same concept of justice they believe in juries nobody's campaigning to say we got to get rid of the jury system you can't distinguish democrats and republicans on that issue nobody is saying that there has to be some means of centralizing power to such an extent that there has to be a vastly expanded for example a federal department of education it's still pretty much on the fringes most of the federal agencies are run but certainly fulltime bureaucrats but you don't have the degree of centralized political control that the soviet union had in nineteen seventy there isn't anything like that americans would not affirm that the two parties are pretty much the same on the issue of the deficits the rhetoric may be different they vote the same so when somebody is running for office do you ever find a guy saying i want the christian vote i'm going after the eighth easiest vote i've never heard that if it's there i've never heard a campaign based on that position the number of people or at least the percentage of people who claim that they are christians is certainly in the range probably of sixty or sixty five percent people who attend church once a month maybe or probably in the range of forty to forty five percent and so forth the number of people who claim that they believe straight darwinism is under twenty percent nobody else believes it so what i wanna see is in terms of the broad mass of american voters where is this distinction that would say we don't believe in the ten commandments we believe in some other sis.
