Is Biden Preparing to Give Sovereignty of America to the WHO?
"Show. Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to dean. Michelle bachman used to be congresswoman Michelle bachmann now. Michelle bachmann, you're the dean of the Robertson school of government at regent university. What we're talking about is obviously unconstitutional, unprecedented. And most people living their lives just can't believe that the people in leadership that they've elected theoretically could be so profoundly ignorant or just evil that they would turn the nation over to strangers to bad actors to people like the head of WHO, it seems impossible are senators like, you know, the good guys out there, Josh hawley and company, there's a number of senators and congressmen, Jim Jordan, who I would expect would be on this. Do you have any sense of any of them are talking about this? These are very good guys, but in their defense, I think a lot of them have no idea. We're all blindsided by this. It's not easy to get to them quite honestly. They've got a phalanx of staff in front of them. And the staff knows everything. The staff and these congressional Senate offices, most of them are 25 years old and know everything. And so it's tough to penetrate that wall that surrounds a member of Congress. But nonetheless, we have to try. We have to do everything that we can. I know senator Rick Scott, I spoke with his chief of staff, senator from Florida. And spoke to him, sent him information. Rick Scott tweeted over the weekend that he is in opposition to the who taking sovereignty over the U.S.. So it starting to penetrate. But that's not a big deal that Rick Scott, we would expect he would be opposed to somebody taking over sovereignty of the U.S.. We would expect anybody who's not an idiot or a communist to be opposed to this. So big deal, the question is, what does Rick Scott and his fellow senators going to do about it? I mean, that's a little bit. And again, what they have to do is they have to kick and scream and they need to throw a tantrum on the Senate floor in the house, floor and say, look, you're not getting another vote out of us. We're not even going to vote. Until you withdraw those amendments, you bring those amendments here in the House floor and the Senate floor. We're going to take a look at them. We're going to tell the American people what they say. And that's what people need to do. Read these amendments. A lot of what the amendments do is scratch out the right of the U.S. to have our unilateral authority. Instead, that authority is given over to the director
Michele Bachmann Explains the Extreme Dangers to America's Sovereignty
"Now. The dean of the Robertson school of government for regent university and she is my guest. Michelle bachmann, welcome. Thank you so much and also a longtime friend to Eric my taxes. Honored to think so. I have to say, you have been in public life for a long time. You get in the weeds on this stuff. I just, I can't bear sometimes to look at it. What I have been hearing from you and others regarding this issue, it seems like a kind of madness. Somebody must be making it up. It can't be true. Tell us what is going on. Well, that is the biggest problem right now because people can't believe that this could be possible. But then just say to yourself, what have we lived through for the last two and a half years where Congress didn't vote on mask mandate. Congress did vote on lockdowns. Conference Congress didn't vote on suspending rent for rent control issues. They didn't vote mandate vaccines. None of those votes were taken. It was all under the auspices of emergency powers that the Biden administration, whether it was Rachel walensky at the Centers for Disease Control or Doctor Fauci or doctor burps. Pronouncements were made. It was just a press release or a press conference, and we were all told, oh, this is law. We were told that we had to comply as though it was law. When it wasn't long, it was emergency action. So what's happening? I set that up because what's happening is that level of rising authoritarianism and a denial of our civil liberties, the last two years in America by American health officials, that level of authoritarianism, decision making, under the Biden amendments, if they pass a Geneva Switzerland May 22nd to 28th, would transfer American sovereignty and the sovereignty all nations over the world over our healthcare decisions from our nation over to the director general of the World Health Organization. That's
Miss Kay Robertson Shares a Powerful Story About Her Husband Phil
"Back. I'm talking to miss K Robertson and Lisa Roberts in the book his sister roar and miss K, you just said something. I know you told me this story before, but I can't believe it. You said that your husband Phil, the duck commander, he was so bad, this is it right at the beginning of your marriage, that he threw you and the kids out of the house. He needed some peace because you were nothing but trouble, obviously. Yes, because I was preaching at this at 27. I really, you know, my Jesus and lord of my life. Before I was a small kid, I didn't exactly know what it meant, but I became a Christian, and I just, you know, I tried to suddenly say thanks and not me, but that's what we got. I was being a holy role or something. He didn't like it. So that's when he put us out and I'll never forget it was a rainy night and I had a boat swag and man three little boys piled every time we could get in a Volkswagen and we went to his brother's house and I asked his brother we stay there because feel put us out and he said only one night, only one night you can stay and I was like, okay and then I said, mind if I only one night because I didn't think I'd ever done anything to offend you and he said, hey, it's not you at all. I'm scared to fail. That's what he said. I'm scared of him. So I said, okay, so I can to the present time we live in now and went to the church, the big church that we got to. And I just told him, I said, I need help, you know? And we got in a little apartment, it was paid by what you make. And I already made 250,000 a month. So that's all I had. And me and the boys, we just prayed for him every day, and they got on the bus, probably it's called the pink buses and if you invite the neighbors, like, come, so it really helped my kids with their loss of not having their daddy. But we prayed for him. We prayed for him and then quickly to end this. He came to my work at a lunchtime, and I was coming in from lunch and my girlfriend said, oh no, there's fail and he's lucky he's laying on his steering wheel. She said, what do you think? And I said, I don't know, but I've got to face it and she said, what if what if he's got a gun in his future? I said, well, you've been watching too much. But number two is, you just watch from here and make sure nothing happens to me. So I go out there and he had been crying, and I've never seen Phil cry. You know, big tough man. You know, cry. And so he said, I'm sorry. He said, I love my family. I can't live without my family. And I just can't eat, and I can't sleep, and he said, I want you. I want you back, and I'm sorry about what I did, all those ten years and I said, Bill, this was my heart was going about a hundred miles an hour. And I said, let me tell you something. You can't do it by yourself. You've said a hundred times you were going to quit. And you didn't. And he said, well, I need to talk to somebody, and I said, well, I've got somebody lined up. It was a preacher at the church where I went. And he had this one time in the beer joint. Phil's baby sits your body men there, and he talked to film 5th day. Have you ever been drunk? And I preacher said, yes, I have. He said, but not lightly, and he said, no Phil, not since I come to Jesus.
Miss Kay and Lisa Robertson on Their New Book 'Sister Roar'
"Let's get to it. What is this book and why did your publisher force you to give it the preposterous title sister roar? How much do I love you to have you on this program to talk about a book called sister roar? I just find that funny. Yeah. Well, I'll tell you what. We came up with the name, actually. Because, you know, throughout our life, we feel as though the evil one silences our voice with difficulties with struggles that we have. And so we want every woman to find their voice and to find that roar that they can speak to others about because in struggles, you know, whenever we have victories through those struggles, we need to tell other people about that because like you said, so many people are in the same place that we are without hope. And so our thing with this book is we want to give people hope and we want to tell them, look, we've been there and you just got to find that voice and you got to tell people, give them that

So we're going to be talking to them in a couple of minutes in hour or two, we're going to encore my conversation with dinesh d'souza himself about the film about his making of the film about what's in the film, that is an hour to today. I'm going to say it again and again, folks. This is, it's an amazing, amazing thing that he has done. It's amazing that the people behind the research, the folks behind true the vote that they saw this coming and that they bought this data. This is all the cell phone data that they track our cell phones, whether we like it or not. And they said, let's buy the data around the drop boxes and see what we see. It is open and shut, and if you don't like it, all you can do is say, oh, it's a conspiracy theory. There is no evidence. So you can say these things, but that makes you a liar because you haven't looked into it. And I want people to know, unfortunately, this really happened. So we need to know how it happened. And this is just one level of fraud. This is just the stuff. This is just ballot harvesting ballots stuffing in the drop boxes. That's one level of fraud, but that was enough. It goes on.
The Media and Their Abortion Myths
"Abortion dominated the coverage. I commented last night before I went out to the movie that, you know, if you read the elite media and I do every night show prep. It's so deep blue. It's so pro abortion right. You won't get a sense of it. Republicans on cusp of abortion win seek to change the subject. No, they're not. I'm going to play for you in segment three, John thune on the Senate floor. It's best example, but Joni Ernst on this show, you have to say Nikki Haley. We are all proudly pro life. We want to restrict abortion, but do so via state legislatures and not change a single blue state law. That's the bottom line. We're not trying to change the subject. We're happy to campaign on that subject. And if blue states don't want candidates adopting that subject, you will get Republicans like Pete Wilson running in states like that who have always been pro choice. It reflects the federalism of America. This is abortion pills by mail posed challenge for officials in red state. No, they don't. They can't stop those. The interstate commerce clause. Once close allies, Robertson Alito have taken divergent path. No, they have not. They are still together far more than they are apart, and there's no indication that chief justice had did not assign the opinion to Alito. That's a made up of blue bubble media thing.
SCOTUS Leak: What We Learned About Chief Justice Roberts
"The Supreme Court's decision in the Dobbs case was evidently not due to be released for another two months. But a leaker somewhere in the court. And by the way, this could not have come from anywhere. There are very few people who know. Not only about the courts in their deliberations and the outcome, the kind of votes stack between on the decision 5 to four, but have a copy of the decision draft itself. The draft document, in this case, written by Alito. Now, let me explain why Alito, you might think, well, why not, why not justice Roberts? Well, the way these decisions work is that if the chief justice is in the majority, he typically writes the decision. So what this means is that the 5 four majority does not include Roberts. Now I'll talk about Robertson a minute because evidently Roberts has been reported. Again, I'm amazed this information is even coming out. That Roberts actually wanted to uphold the Mississippi law. So he wanted to find that past 15 weeks Mississippi could in fact outlaw abortion, but he did not want to overturn roe versus wade flat out. He didn't want to just return the matter to the states because remember, if you return the matter to the states, the state can pass a law, heartbeat bill that makes abortion illegal after 5 weeks. So after 6 weeks. So Robert seemed to be drawing the 15 week line of demarcation and saying that beyond that, you can regulate abortion, but before that maybe he was going to argue I say maybe because none of us have seen his dissenting decision, but apparently he was not dissenting flat out. He was in partial agreement with the majority, but he was not willing to go all the

Duck Dynasty's Missy Robertson on Unconditional Love
"I'm talking to Missy Robertson. One of the, there are thousands of Robertson's out there. And even in Monroe, Louisiana, there's just like dozens of them, but misses the pretty grandmother. Actually, several there are several pretty grandmothers. It's very confusing. You're married to Jace and you have a children's book out. A new one, which is called because you're my family. And you were just talking about at the heart of it is this idea of unconditional love. And so I have tasted your mother in law's cooking and I love it. But it's not unconditional love. It's based on the quality of the taste of the cooking. You're talking about something very different, which is it's a hard balance for parents. Let's be honest. It's a hard balance because I think Bonham for talks about cheap grace. There's cheap love. You see people that's like love, love, love, but they're not, they're not doing the tough love sometimes with their kids. It's just all, I love you, but they're not understanding that love that it's more complicated than just, I love you. So you're not really talking about kind of sloppy love. You're talking about unconditional love, which is, well, again, it's God's idea of love. That's right. I mean, it's the chase you down in the middle of a rainstorm and save your life before you fall into the river, even though you just disobeyed me, kind of love, which is what happens in the book. And you know, you think about the parable of the 100 sheep. Jesus left the 99. The shepherd leaves the 99 to go and chase after that one. That the unconditional love. That one did not follow the rules. He got away somehow because he wasn't following the rules. And so if he would have stayed within the boundaries of what was expected of him, he would not have had to been rescued. And that tells a lot about us. We mess up every day. We stand every day, but Jesus is unconditional love, blows down over and over and over all over us.

Yeah we got the one that you can see come on join hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father's son owners Pete and Seth Talbot have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like next shoulder back hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day, but what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month. If it doesn't work.

Hey there folks, welcome to the aircraft taxis show. I will be playing the role of Eric metaxas. I'm his understudy, and I apologize in advance, but I didn't have a lot of time. As my guest, now listen, you know if you know me, how much I love the duck dynasty folks, the Robertson family. I just love them. I had the privilege of including them on this program many times, but also on my crazy Christmas special, a couple of years ago. And my daughter and I got to go down, duck hunting with Phil and uncle psy, and let me just tell you, I don't care if we didn't kill that many ducks. I had a good time. But there are so many of these wonderful robertsons that today I get to talk to Missy Robertson, who has a series of children's books out Missy, welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me, Eric. Now I want to be clear, you're married to Jase. Of course. The best looking one. And that's not so much. Now, come on, they all got beards. We don't know what any of them really look like. You would agree with you. We don't know what an evil look like. But all of you, and I just find this funny because your father in law Phil, you know, he's all about they need to get married young. And you all get married pretty young and have kids young. And so you're telling me that you're now a grandmother, seriously? Yes, she's three months old and she's perfect. Yes. Well, congratulations on looking so great as a grandmother. But I just want to, I want to say that your family does represent family values and the best sense. And I'm glad having written a lot of children's books myself that you have written some kids books. So tell me about them. They're brand new. They're just out like right now. Yeah, so I've written one in a series of children's books for brave books and the one that I co authored with them is called because you're my family. So I guess that's why they thought of us for this book and me in particular because family is very important to us to the robertsons and actually just to Christians in general. I mean, God is the one who orchestrated the structure of family and so it is vital to the stability of our relationships and I mean all the way up to our nation and internationally to the world. It's very, very important. The stability of our family. Well, it is interesting. I mean, I don't make the case often, but when you think back, you know, the history of the United States when we think of tocqueville and conservatives. They always saw that I guess it was Burke, who talked about the little platoons, the family, the church community, without these things, you can not have a free, vibrant society. And it's always interesting to me that marxists, communists, their anti family in one way or the other because the family, just like the church, is a threat to state power. And so no matter how you slice it, family is important, important to God. And then of course, important to free societies and we need to kind of make that point. Marriage is important, raising kids. All these things are bigger than themselves. So I just had to get that out of my system. Well, it gets back to the commitment. I mean, if you can't commit to the ones that are closest to you, how can you commit to anything else in life? Once it gets too hard, the going gets tough, you're going to leave. But the ones around you, if you can commit early on and teach your children how to commit and teach your children how to love unconditionally, that's what this book is about, then that does require stability and it takes stability. It takes a lot of, it takes a lot of strength and courage to do that sometimes because our family disappoints us a lot. And we have a large family. We disappoint each other a lot. We have to learn to forgive. And that's where that unconditional love comes in. If you can forgive, show mercy inside of your home, you learn to do that outside of your home. So, you know, we're looking at right now with this war going on across the ocean, it seems like, and it is, it could happen to us at any time. Evil exists, and has always exist everywhere..

Why Eric Would Rather Be Buried Than Cremated...
"Seeing your Instagram posts about a new late night show. Can you say more about that? Well, it's called the talk show with Eric metaxas and I can not say more about that. If you want to know more about that and I'm not kidding, you have to go to Eric metaxas dot com, sign up for my newsletter. Only there can I really say what needs to be said. I'm not kidding. Yeah, go there. I've heard Eric state that he will be buried and not cremated after death. Is this true? He didn't give a reason, and I'd really like to know his thoughts on the subject. Well, there's a lot to be said on this. But let me simply say that I think the biblical way of thinking is it's incarnational of the Bible is pro body. It is not anti body. That's part of it. I think that there are notes of paganism

"Promo code Eric. You used to cry. About it folks, I'm talking to Phil Robertson, the duck commander, his new book is called uncanceled, finding meaning and peace in a culture of accusations, shame and condemnation. Phil, I think there many, many people who are not conservatives who are not Christians who nonetheless see that things have gotten so bad they don't know where to turn. They are themselves saying, I've never seen anything like this. This is madness. Anybody who has a sense of history thinks back to the French Revolution or to the Bolshevik revolution where anybody who tried to cozy up the power and to be one of the councillors themselves eventually had their head in the guillotine or were sent to the deaf kid to the gulag. This is a pattern that's gone over and over through history. It does not work. It's building your house on sand and I think a lot of people who, as I said, are not overly conservative or Christian, nonetheless, they're looking around thinking, this is crazy. How do we get out of this? Call of ticks, flows down the hill down the hill and you say, from culture, it produces culture produces the politicians. This is not a political fix. This is a spiritual fix. I would tell the city that out there love is patient, so be patient as you reach out to your neighbor. Love is kind. Love does not envy love does not boast. Love is not proud, love is not rude, love is not self seeking, that check this out. I would say this to the saved over the last love is not easily angered and love check this out. Keeps no record of wrongs. When Jesus came down, he said, well, I forgave you and remove your sin. I'm done with, I'm done with that. I'm not going to hold it against you ever again. Just look at as a cancel culture has much of this text. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects love always trust love always hopes, love always perseveres and check this out. Love never fails. That's first Corinthians 13 power writing to the same caribbeans, the same people, he worries it earlier. Don't deceive yourself. Don't deceive yourself. Neither sector nor the doctors that don't he gave him all that. But he got to the end, this is first green things 13. He says, look, you know what the problem is. When you quit, you don't find a love for God and a love for your neighbor. You're going to collapse at some point in the future. If you devour each other and you don't listen to what I've said. So God's trying to get us on the right track. He said Jesus. If somebody has a better story than Jesus removed on our sand, guaranteed I'd be raised from the dead, not counting any future sins against me. We're under grace. We make mistakes. We confess him. He removes them. If somebody is a better story, but what is it? I'm all ears. Well, listen, it is funny, isn't it? When you hear it for what it is, you think, am I missing something? We've caricaturized the faith so that people don't see it for what it is. It is so beautiful. There's a reason they call it the good news. The greatest story ever told. It is the most glorious story. And it witnesses to itself on every level. It's beautiful. It's moving..

"We're going to tell you more when we come back, don't go away. I would let my dear say you're in. And Jesus came like a stranger in the night praying alone and I saw the light I saw the light I saw the light in case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leaving the prices of goods to rise.

Well, my daddy left home when I was three and he didn't leave much. The mall and me just this little guitar and empty bottle of booze. Folks I'm talking to Phil Robertson the new book is called un canceled. And Phil, this refers to the fact that even though they tried to cancel you, they didn't cancel you because by the time this happened, you and duck dynasty had become so popular in such a money maker for a and E that it was very tough for them to throw you under the bus, so you survived and here we are. And I think, honestly, so many people were cheering you on. And that you have become a type because in the years since that happened, the same cancel culture has continued on, but every now and again, someone says, I will not allow you to be canceled. I will continue speaking the truth. I will continue speaking what the scripture says, whatever it is, I actually have hope for America, but it's only because folks like you and me are talking about this. Where Jesus died, he said, to a group of individuals who said they were without seeing and Jesus said, if you hold to my teaching, then you'll know what the truth is and the truth will set you free. They said, we're not slaves anymore. What do you mean set free? Jesus sets us free from Satan from sin from the guilt of it all. From law, not just on the grace, and he set to free from the grave. If someone has a better story, I want to hear it. Built into that story is the kind of lifestyle we should live in the place of a holy God who has came down, kept below perfectly, turns around and dies on a cross to get us out from under. So he can solve the written code. Everybody's canceled when they get a certain age and they send. When you get when you should know better, early teenage years, whatever. Your conscience kicks in and you're saying, you get canceled by God because you're dead in your sins. Along comes Jesus and says, get up. I've come to remove your sand. All of your passions removed by my blood on the cross. None of your future sands counted against you. I'll be mediating for you. At the right hand of God, when you stumble as a Christian and you will keep climbing, you don't see in your eye. So even when you're a Christian, you make mistakes, but you have Jesus to appeal to he is your mediator. He speaks in your defense to the father, he always says he's the greatest defense attorney ever because he's never lost a case. I don't think I've heard that one. I love that. We have a lot of churches in the United States. I can say, at this point, that are not really speaking to these issues. Either they're turning a blind eye to some of these issues, whether it's because all these issues are related, of course. But it's an interesting thing in a culture like ours as it was in the Roman times, of course, we're not as bad yet, but you have to pay a price when you speak the truth because there are many, many voices that they simply don't want to hear it. They want to shut you up. That's what cancel culture is, of course..

I'm talking to my friend, Phil Robertson, the duck, commander, has a book out called uncanceled, finding meaning and peace in a culture of accusations, shame and condemnation. Phil, we were just going over the biblical thinking that why cancel culture is satanic. It is accusatory. It wants to crush and curse people, God is just the opposite. He wants to look at even the most sinful of us and say, I love you. I want to forgive you. I want to draw you into my presence. It's so dramatic and it's dramatic to me that a lot of big pastors around America have not talked about this that it falls to a famous duck hunter to talk about this or a city slicker like metaxas. It's kind of interesting that the church is not prophetically speaking about this issue right now. Part of the reason you're qualified to talk about this is because the cancel forces came after you, a number of years ago. I don't know how much you want to talk about it, but I remember being furious when you did at the height of duck dynasty's fame on TV, I guess it was a and E, wherever you guys were. A Rolling Stone did an interview with you. And you said some common sense things. You said some basic things, Rolling Stone will never censor anybody. They will publish any vulgar thing. They have a track record 40 years of filth and uncensored whatever. So you were interviewed by them. And you said some things about human sexuality, which were a little raw, but you're basically talking about biblical sexuality, which most people would agree with. But they came after you as though you had pledged allegiance to Adolf Hitler. I will never forget it. Can you talk about that? What happened then? Well, the guy said that I believe he asked Jason first, he said, do you really expect anyone to believe that you waited till you were married before you had sex with your girlfriend? They asked my son that before they got to meet. I was not privy. Jay told me about it, my son told me about it later. Jay said, I don't care whether you believe it or not. We waited till we were married before we had sex. I don't care whether you believe it or not. That's what happened. From there, he moves to me across the room. And he said, do you believe mister Robertson at homosexual behaviors are saying? I quoted first Corinthians 6. 9 and ten do not be deceived. Neither he asked me a question, that I believe homosexual behavior is a sin. I said, do not be the same. I quoted this text. Neither the sexually Amaro, the idolatrous, the idea was the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders that you ask about and the greedy, the drunkards, the pains, the slanders, the swindlers, they will not inherit the kingdom of God, and that is what some of you, he's talking to the church of Korean. That the apostle said, it's. What you need to hear. That's what you used to be, but you've been washed. You've been sanctified. You've been justified. So he was letting him, he was letting the people know at car ram. God forgive you. He can forgive you for all these things. They took that and it took them a month to figure out all I did was quote a Bible verse when asked that I believe a certain sexual sin is wrong. So that's what all that was about. I just simply quoted him above a verse because I thought that he argued with God about it. God had the apostle power right to the church of car rent. So blame God, but I didn't.

So if I'm having fun, that is an arbiter that we're on the right track. And one of the ways I have fun is talking to people that I love to talk to. One of those people is Phil Robertson, the duck commander, some of you know who he is, the rest of you were born yesterday, Phil Robertson, my friend, welcome to the program. Hey, good to be here, right? You're looking at me, man. It looks, it's always encouraging to see you. You just you bless me in many ways. You remember actually the last time I saw you was not when we filmed the Christmas special. We filmed the Christmas special and originally I had come down to Monroe to film the Christmas special with you, which we aired on TBN and people can find it. But we were supposed to go duck hunting and you said that year there was some strange rule that we were not able to go. And I said, okay, I'm coming back. And I brought my daughter and we went with you and uncle si, and we actually went duck hunting together before dawn, and I just have to say that's one of the greatest memories of my life, even though there were not that many ducks in the sky that day. Well, I'm pretty safe you recognize that. You need to get out more. Get out of the city from time to time, attack this because it's, you don't want to be a 100% cities liquor. Just a little bit. I only wear the costume of a city city slicker to fool the other city slickers, okay? Deep down my beard is as big as yours. And but we covered up with makeup. Now the reason that you have come on here because I know you are the opposite of a media hog, you don't care about any of this stuff, but you have a book out. And so your handlers have forced you. They said, would you at least do the Eric metaxas show? And I don't know why you said yes, but I'm very glad you did. So you have a book out called uncanceled, finding meaning and peace in a culture of accusations, shame, and condemnation, un canceled by Phil Robertson. All right, so.

"Afghanistan right now and they're trying to stamp it up they can't. That's why i major in kingdom were. Yeah not governmental work as good manmade constructs. I'm like i'm not you man. But that's what people who when you said like converting people or your mom. Yeah it's it's christ in us is the holy spirit that it's god. Converting people through these jars of clay with our baggage is not really no. It's not and i think people misunder misinterpret that whenever i because we get comments every down and fills not convert anybody. That's not what we're saying. God yeah we're we're more scared of that work conversion because they think that they think ola a you're they're like yeah yup brainwashing. You know. we've been brainwashed. But it's been by the spirit of god it wasn't and it was at our own choosing. Yeah but what it is. It's an introduction to jesus and it's a revelation of your of your of your san your depravity but it's also a revelation of of of what christ did in his finished work on the cross. I think there's a big theological debate. That's gone on for the last several years. And it's kind of come a head now of this idea of you got two things going on Christ died for my sins. That theological term is substitutional. Penal atonement christ's dot as a substitute for for the penalty of sin at the other side. Said anna christ died for the collective a tolman of every like of humanity. and they. it's like we we pit these things against one another. I think this matters in the context of this discussion because christ died for Dashers since me individually dot for phil robertson sins. He that for jason. All you listening. He died for your sense individually and stood at your place when we are added into the kingdom than christ uses individuals to redeem the world. And so that's why you see The church the underground church were like. We're supporting the underground church in the liberation of people in china that liberation of people in afghanistan. You see us working towards things like justice is but we do it collectively. But we can't begin that work until we're personally redeemed and then within the kingdom is unleashed on the world as it happened in this particular place and you look at it. hospitals the advancement of science cures for all these diseases that all came from from from god's you'll have in fact collapse and we're we're we're we're going down that road to getting closer all the time. We're moving in the wrong direction. But the kingdom of god when someone obeys the gospel like the next chapter to be baptized. You receive god's spirit you it'd be a spiritual kingdom under a american governmental construct.

My son is saved. Because of your mom and i didn't know who she was like. Really she said oh yeah so then she starts telling me the story of mom encounter with phil and and her how influential mom wasn't and fills conversion of introducing bill smith to him and bring in bill smith in which by the way we're working on a movie about for about the first twenty eight years a a feeling case marriage which is going to be very powerful and part of this is going to be second be ready which up trying to get it from art. Pg thirteen but it's yeah it's it's going to be interesting but but she's telling that story as she said you're in so phil comes to christ or your mom partly from your mother's ministry and and and just hard for him he converts and when we say by the way he converse what we mean. Is phil introduced. Jesus tube. that's what we mean by that. He introduces jesus to chad johnson. Chad johnson rescued this woman out of prostitution and drug addiction and the night minister out on tuesday night minister and who was estranged from her side. But after going through the transformation program Her son finally after a year came to church weather and then he i think he heard maybe you speak or you one of you guys preach and then he responds to. The gospel and advocating became a christian. And she's like so. I just want you know. Of course that was of all the things that came forward it was it. Was that because the those were night ministers. Bill smith going into that bar meeting you. That's my dip at this.

You know through what god has given us. I mean those are true heroes. I think what you gotta step by step back and look at in any situation and then raza to the greater conversation. Which is what we're trying to do here. Take a break. So her interesting one of my neighbors. As down the southern layer he had an interesting observations. We were talking about hair loss the other day and he said you know. I'm not really losing my hair. Just look at it. Like i'm growing my forehead.

Actually our sponsor keeps. I said well you might want to check out keeps if you're if you don't want to grow your forehead. Maybe that's a different way to put it. Maybe we've addison.

Yeah my mount son-in-law mean he went over rat after nine eleven and built the help start building the bagaram airbase us out there on the bulldozers and they're moving the dirt and getting ready because we're gonna become an so he was at the very beginning of it you know and so there's a lot of guys like him and gaza to toe situation so we appreciate your service all you guys and love is. I want you to know that american support So i had a question. Wait a couple of listener questions that we wanted to do. Today and one of them was was interesting. I'm not read. The entire bank is pretty long but he. He's the the gist of his problem is this he said i'm very confused. Own how all future sins are not counted against a person because he talks about being a born again believer be struggling with the idea that how do you see the in live you know and see him and in the he made a couple of statements days that i thought i'm sure what he means here but i think this is whereas when he said if i were to slip and fall i must go back and do my first works and he says astra guys forgiveness of those sands loot trying not to commit that. Sandy says a couple of times. I think that's where probably his thinking is a little bit office. Thought we'd have a little discussion about grace how it works especially for once a person becomes a son or daughter of god because we're not perfect in something has changed in our status right and how we live going forward but people really struggle with this and we get a lot of questions about it which is why bring it up. Because there's they think somehow still is back on them to somehow make this thing right up so goes back to what i said the hollywood's depiction of christian people most of these fringe radical dangerous groups. They're not grace based right. It's rule oriented religion that leads to when you have a role based theology. You get people making up rules that are not biblical whatsoever and bring out the worst in people instead of the best and so may i say that right off the bat to answer the question because i you know i think this is a legitimate issue to in christ. Is you feel like you can do this. Or somehow you know. We just went through the whole book romans. One of the main pillars of the book was. You can't do. This is god's righteousness that's why we surrender so you know. I think i would start off saying you know. Hebrews thirteen eight is an interesting verse because it says jesus christ as the same yesterday today and forever. Well that's a state but the weekend make any human. Jesus became human. So what does that mean. Well so when you think about the nature of god the characteristics of god and what's different between god and us right. he's all knowing he's all powerful. He's omnipresent which is not bound by space he. He's completely aware of us wherever we are our thoughts so in our minds. We think well if i messed up. I've ruined everything he did for me. I'm i'm back. Because i know about jesus and now i've messed up so i think based when you look at it from god's perspective when he he knows what what you did he knows what you're doing and he knows what you will do but jesus is the same yesterday today and forever is because i believe his forgiveness once we encounter that then becomes that that fact that he is the same yesterday today and forever and he knows your heart when he just combines it all at the same time. We're not able to do that so we say yes. He forgave us for all our fans. He forgives us. What we're doing now and he forgives us of what we will be because the cross and the resurrection is for the entirety of your life. So if you look at it from your perspective you feel like you're falling out of grace all the time but from his perspective that's almost comical. We're just we just covered that so so write this down. Whoever wrote it who have asked.

"Us. Let's take your last right so we start off with unity. But then he goes to what the world and they have this out at away because there is no grace in the world. It 'cause if you mess up on whether it's a hundred years ago or four hundred cancel culture while right no tear down your stats here. We're we're grace. And it says then he goes to our diversity which is when he says in verse four just as each of us have one body with many members. So we're all one. We're one body where the body of christ he's the head but we have many members so there's our diversity and he gets into the gifts are diversity is we don't all have the same gift from god in representing jesus but that's what makes us unique. Yup then the last thing is the harmony. Despite our diversity we're all unified in christ and what i mean by harmony. It's as if it is serving. let him serve. It's teaching leading t to it is encouraging. Let him encourage if it has contributed to the needs of others. Let him give generously and all of these things are having let him. Do it cheerfully if it's show on mercy and then he gets into these qualities. Love must be sincere and some of these are kind of hard to wrap your your brian around because any says hate what is evil. Mance weird that we have a we. We love to hate something but when it comes to evil. We're we're harmonious there. We love to hate evil not people because he's already addressed that you know in grace and clean the what is good. And so then you have all these lists but it's all these things that show the same thing we're unified in this. We have different gifts and accomplish in this but it make it makes us in gives us harmony together as we're representing god in this and done correctly. It's a juggernaut. What's ironic is the word. University is supposed to represent unity in diversity. The idea is is that we got all the houston days. Have the college of all these different colleges inside that university in so you go there were. You're a you're you know represented north carolina university. We're all tarheels ear. But everybody's doing their different going for their different degrees. So the idealist but we're all we're together now. Ironically on a university campus is the most divisive hateful spirited place in america which a sign of the whole country is as you get. The book of romans was written right. But that's why i wanted to point that. That's what i was thinking. Because because people of the pattern of the world they're over trying to promote diversity in diversity in in diversity. And i'm like but you're just promoting division. We cannot be any more divided in our culture weather. It from whatever politically or socially or economically or even racially. I mean there's just so much division out there and all these little count and there china's they will let's let's get. How are we gonna get together. Start with start with check out. Make sure you you get the spirit of god involved. Not not julian spit. You know all right because you don't have grace but the grace comes first. That's why this whole started. Imbuing god's mercy because i think that's the problem with our world is. There's no way to start over all unite because we're mad about what some group did or somebody did or what color they were. Who did it. And we're we all rally around and hundreds of years ago. Yeah and it's like you're never coming back together because there's no grace. There's no way to start over because they're not gonna forgive you and i'm not gonna forgive them and i'm just gonna. I'm gonna spin everything that comes up in a way that makes you look unfavourable. You forget whether the truth or not. And that's basically. I've just summed up the new cycle twenty four. Whichever one you go to. They're putting their spin on it. They're putting their other spend. That's why you gotta start with grace. Well andrew so i was. They were doing this little like you know person on the street deal. And they were interviewing these college kids that were mostly young women that would step over to the mike and they say it was around the fourth giant. I said. are you proud that you're an american and every single one at least on this thing. I don't know if there was one that didn't but they never showed it said. Oh absolutely not i mean this is terrible and then they would go into all the grievances. I as tom as it was georgetown university. Just just outside of the capitol. And i thought i mean this is none of these. Pay bob the way too. But i don't think they want to. There's a there's an interesting line. They're saying america's terrible. But here's what i'm saying. You feel while ago brought up about the pattern. Hold of the pattern. Jesus is the pattern grand the power correct and one of the things he did in john five because you had this man who was sitting by the pool whatever he ask a strange question. He's like do you wanna wall. And that's what i feel like. you know. The cure has got to be grace in healing. Not that was a physical thing but same thing happens spiritually. I think if you ask these people i'm not. Should they want the healing. Get to a point where you're so bitter and divisive and you're fighting for your calls every day. If you really wanted to cure the world at some point you have to want to. You'd have to want to love whoever you're mad at..

"A break. Well and i think obviously you're right in the look at the phrase transformed by the renewing of your mind. That's obviously a process. Because that's going going and plus j good ponts cadence seasoning. Thank about days. Hey has a little heat to it. Eat a little heat sometimes. A little hard. It's lack of the guy would fox news. I was talking to him he said. I can't believe you voted for. Donald trump is sinful. As he is. He said you know. Why would you do that. If you're christian. I said all neo. Neil buddha's neil. You've got a few sands yourself probably where you think he said you talking to me asiedu. You're going to get any scenes. O'neill said it's getting harder. That's because you put a little a little as as say little kids and see a little heat here. Wait a minute not guilty. If you see dude. I've always thought policy always framed everytime it talks about the gospel. You notice from the very first chapter. He'll say the to do and then to the gentile makes this point of saying this is for the whole world. So i've always felt these first two verses in chapter twelve. He sorta aimed at both those groups of people because they have totally different ways of living. And now he's working with all these towels. They don't have a background in temple worship except for false guys. They don't know about any of that stuff. Jesus rampal president of the united states. I'm not balsam. I'd vote for him. You know what i'm saying already have already. Yeah he's in parallel passage of the living sacrifice and from their jewish. History is in hebrews. Thirteen eleven where he made this analogy. The hebrew said the high priest carries the blood of animals and in the most holy place as a sent offering but the bodies are burnt outside the camp. Which is what they did under the law and the national of israel and it says verse twelve though and so jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood so basically just giving you a picture of the world. He he came to the world. He came to that which was at his own basically crucified him for everybody but then it says let us then go to him outside the kale bearing the grace he bore. Which is the idea of a living sacrifice in the world. Not the camp because that was his lifestyle amount. I love this because then he says for here. We don't have an endurance. City are looking for the city to this. Come through jesus let us continually offer to god. A sacrifice of praise the fruit of lips that confess his name and don't forget to do good and to share with others with such sacrifices. God is pleased. I think it gives you a better image of how like when you view. God's mercy god is communicating. How does communicate. Well that's through. Jesus is the image of god and it's not it's more than believing you're right. It's it's a daily realizing the difference in saying something as true and then realizing it's true once you realize it's true like when you so we might mourn with those more and but it's hard to do that when you're your heart is not linked with god and you're getting his spiritual presence in your heart this leading to that. Every time i get a frontal assault with with profanity aimed at me. I'm i'm i'm silent but you say but and your your your face doesn't come up with a grand but you're smiling and sad. I'm smiling inside when i'm here. What they're saying about. Jesus christ just a high. I'm inside. i'm like lord. This is this is i get it. Yeah yeah i get it. But i'm not a whole against the maybe they'll maybe they'll repent. Why didn't that's in this tax linlin mop paul. My knowledge is when you when you're with people you don't want to be acting like the people who are working for the funeral home now. They got the suit on and they're calm and they're oh we're we're sympathize and with your lulls in what you're thinking. Yeah because you just got paid the mayor jason. I'm here there.

We lost oldfield because he died now now more here. He's a little closer to have these come a long way in his faith because about twenty years ago we had this conversation and he said look. Just don't put me in a cemetery. I don't if you remember this. You said just make a box. Don't buy it. He's a make it put me in it. He said and then just find the curb or whatever and just dump me out river positive illegal. It is illegal. Yeah i didn't realize against the law enforcement it is. It is the reason why is because a funeral and people have gotten them with legislators. Now you have to be embalmed by certain bearded is go. Anything or burr. I mean you can be cremated immediately. And that's the cheapest way to go. Yeah its not cheaper and just dump it in a whole but like say. We're thank. I'll just go with the old style burial card for the guy who owns a funeral home. I have made more jokes of that. Got like because heals your credit card game online where she shovel you know and like you. Arctic graveyard shift. Last night. he was late.

There's only about four four funeral home so they're getting all the business you know so you know that people are dying to get into those places like my next line. I'm gonna. i'm gonna have the guide conversation. Because i almost said look. You're in the business of putting them in the ground. I'm in the business of getting them out there.

And we're supposed to get and about you know nine thirty a way to get there like at eleven but so when i put it i plugged into stupid. Gps on the phone. But when you're in a rural area the you don't get sell covers. So thank he's going out you know. I'm driving around in the middle of the night trying to figure out where i'm going.

So i get in so then i got there and i was like so. I got me an old fashioned. Atlas from two thousand sixteen near the big road atlas rhode island sock and understand all of them but computers. Well the computers is a what lad to me a lot and i was already laid. I was tired of this trip supposed to eight hours. It took twelve. Or so.

You know they say you're not lost if you don't care where you're going or when you get there on that i'm like i don't have to be there so my oh it's whatever mishap is fine but you know missy doesn't think the same way but i'm like this is all part of the experience but if i got a b summer.

"You're working now with college students because you're teaching them so now you've been you were here but you're also at west. What what are the some of the things you see culturally. That are really gonna be a challenge as we go forward. I mean with some some of the things you see. Yeah ban so so i. It's hard to kind of distill this for the sake of time and just a short enough may blurb but a couple of things that i think are worth mentioning. I feel like right now for a couple of different reasons. One of the biggest things people are struggling with is identity. And i'm not talking about like people describing who i say i am when i'm meeting new people or or what i do for a profession as as who i say i am like who i see when i when i look in the mirror and in in in the depths of my soul who am i. I think that's a big piece. I think the second is we're in a we're in a culture that offers a lot of artificial instantaneous. Varieties of of pain relief that that don't actually relieve pain. They only compounded and so people find themselves in this over stimulated frame of mind while i'm sipping coffee. I'm watching tv. I'm scrolling social media. But in my mind i'm thinking about the next five things i want to do. And and it's a distraction from my emotional pain but but it keeps my brain over stimulating. The second i'm not over stimulated or distracted not only. Does that pain catch up to me. But i just feel bad anxious depressed. Whatever you want to say. And i think the third thing that i'm cnn is just people may be now more than ever more desperate to find meaning and purpose in life so we can unpack any of that. But i work. I see twenty probably clients a week. I oversee ten councillors. Who are seeing two hundred a month. And i've been doing this work for ten years and worked with thousands upon thousands of people arkansas louisiana and now colorado and it does this kind of stuff done discriminate by geographical location. I mean do you like in these conversations. Do you like because when i hear those three things i think well they need to be thinking. Remain the image of god to their spending way too much time on social media and then attaching their worth based on comparison in the. What'd you say. The third was the purpose or meaning. They're just. I'm like do sean. That kind of takes care of point to which is most of our time is spent scrolling and straight even when we're supposed to be working in and comparing it's like you're living as i form or an image of yourself right. Yeah jas. I think that spiritual transformation connection with god through. Jesus christ. The son is is the required ingredient to solve the biggest problems in culture. You know today. In what what i'm trying to do as a counselor is use counseling techniques and theory to lead people to that place of the radical encounter with jesus christ. I like that with which. I'm sure in our cultural world. You get flack for that. Because they're just trying to solve the problems without jesus. So i guess it's a form of medicating without really auburn a substantial eternal cure. or but. i'm sure that's a tough path. Do you have to climb with individuals. Yeah it's it's it's a tough battle arts and look some- sometimes the reason it's tough is because people have either been hurt by church kind of people people her by people who say their followers of jesus or or they've seen christ followers not live by the command of jesus To love one another like he loved us it when they see that fighting or they've been hurt. Those are challenges for for us as christians to overcome and introduce people to jesus way that transforms their life and then yeah culture. Right now is just is is so. It's this weird paradox. They're so desperate for truth but they're so opposed to people who are bold enough to say there is truth. There is a right way. If you go that way You'll find what you're looking for life and until you do you're never gonna find it And so jason is challenging. And yeah i think a lot of reasons why people resist that but its major challenge. I always thought when you were here tran. You being a talented preacher. And studying the word of god and then you're kind of you know you re counseling but at the same time you have. That was your main thing so you had that out front. I always thought that the counseling that you did and the connection to people helped you be a better preacher now as flipped. Because you're right you're primary counter but how is how does that knowledge in had understand the word of god help you to help people deal with these problems that they're having what's what's the benefit. Yeah so so. I see all biblical truth.

"You. So i am super excited today. Because we've got a very special guest on unashamed nation one of our best pals dr trent lang hoffer dad. What do you call. Trent cliffhanger offer. Cliff cliff hanger is is is zooming in from colorado springs where he is now. So trump was a preacher at deb f. r. for way worked on staff are allowed to actually preached exclusively for. What the last couple of years or something like that you our i guess about four five. Yeah basically trant to my place which you know big shoes to fill as we all know and he He prays with mike and then eventually he was our league at the last couple of years. He was there but trent is a a tremendous speaker. a very I know he's got everything you'd need to do that. And yet he's also a counselor because he has a doctorate in counseling. So let's face it right now. Trent you are the smartest guy in there and it's not close not even close. It's closed out if i could combine all three of our intellect so we'd probably still be just a little bit shy. So how does that make you feel true. doesn't make me smart it just. I'm stubborn and i have a high student. Loan debt so trent has a beautiful bride and three great kids and we love lang offers. You guys were big for. How long have y'all in west wanna total. We were less monroe for ten years and Just loved it yet. Like you said we're in colorado springs now and we just miss our friends from the south who were more like family. Miss you guys so much and just yeah. If you're excited to have the on it has to pale. In comparison to how excited. I am just to hang out with you guys again. Yeah he's what he's saying in a kind way is a. It was a ten year experience. And the pro. Being of the redneck man. That's funny is that are really close. Fred's outside of this and we did so many things together. It was so strange. That contrast. Which i liken alike and it to my relationship with my wife because most people when they made us. They're like now. How did this what's going on here. But trent how we. We talked a few classes together and we would call it. The doctor and the duck man people would come because it was like these two guys our own two totally different. It's like a eric metaxas. Dad metaxas is a stiffy dresser. Intellect rope bond hoffer and all these great books. He's really smart but he's infatuated with dad he's like your dads speaks like he's nine hundred years old. I just i could just sit and listen to you. Know he likes your little. All i can say is it takes all kinds to make up the kingdom of god all kinds so i want to tell the story of the The first time. I really met you. I guess we'd probably shaken hands handle whatever 'cause he was at our church when you got when you were in school and so you were getting pretty close to graduate your months away from graduating and then you're going to go back to kansas. Which is where you had come from and and you were going to work with a grandfather charge or something look so so someone suggest we were doing a marriage class and someone said have you. Have you met this guy. Trent lang hafer. And i said well. Yeah i think met him and they were like man. You should get that god teaching this skies know. He's getting his doctorate out there. So as because. I'm always a little reluctant when i haven't heard somebody say counselor and i thought oh he would it be just a dud. I thought well. I'm gonna take a shot. You know. so so. We had him teaching the class. And we had like you know different teachers lined up. Here we would trinkets gets up and i'm blown away. I'm just like is this guy. Been like he is amazing. So i leaned over so tommy emmett it was the next to me. Is one of our elders and tommy was supposed to teach next week because i was organizing the class. Not thomas hate next week. He's yeah he's you're out he was. Hi i'm gonna give this guy. I at this guy can bring it again so so after class. I do as a hair. Our teacher can't teach next week. Can you handle next week too. And i was. I was really giving you tasks because if you just say okay but you said yeah. I'd love to so you were eager and i like that and then you got the next week. It did it again. And so that led to you. And i sitting in my office having a conversation about what you were going to do and i told us it. What trent look. I know you got your plans laid out you wanna kansas. You're going to be a ministry. And i think that's great sip. If anything ever happens just don't forget about deb. F are because. I didn't even know your whole story yet. Which you're gonna share later but i was like you just seem like you'd be a good fit here and so i just want to plant the seed. I don't wanna you know we prayed for you and pray for your ministry and so t tell what happened after that because it was really interesting. Yes so so. Things kind of just fell through in kansas and i ended up Basically just calling you back. Alan and saying man look. The plan was sort of the door back to kansas preaching and teaching church. Their gods lead us in another direction. And i would love to be whites ferry road. Is there any kind of an opportunity for a cliffhanger and look your listeners. There's just no way they can know you guys as personally as i could but one of the cool things that god's done in my life consistently over the years is just connected me with people who are willing to take a chance on me and You know feel you're talking about redneck wisdom but seriously one of the things that i think you guys do. So well maybe this is part of your redneck with them. Just take a chance on people without having any sense of what the outcome could be and and just investing in people in love and on people and so from really. That moment went when when we had that conversation. When i was teaching that class and then in conversations following me man i was married. I had eighteen month old. I had a fourteen day old. I was going to go back to kansas. That fell through. I didn't really have a pathway. Were were a plan. And so i just kind of threw myself at the mercy of god and the people that he connected me with and and you guys in the elders whites. Ferry road took took a chance on me. And i've seen you guys do that consistently over time and it just meant a lot to me to to watch that and be a beneficiary so you tell you tell you told me your story and of course now talking about hiring somebody which in a charge is never an easy process you know and so i started the process with our fellow leaders and of course you know you gotta you gotta vet this guy you know you gotta find out because we didn't know you and your story so i called our mutual friend. Bonnie phillips and married to debbie which yeah we alluded to in our lex podcast but his wife is a wonderful counselor and she had actually been worked with you When you were a kid a teenager. And so i called her and said bonnie we're thinking about hiring trent for the to work for the church s at i think he's really got a future ministry and i think he could be our leader here ultimately and all this by the way is a year behind. When i'm gonna leave which i didn't know at the time this is just when the show is starting so so bonnie doesn't say anything there was like a long pause and though it's not good when you get the long pause because she's your your reference by allowing paul's like she's a i just she said i'm so overwhelmed right now with emotion that we're having this conversation and then she basically told me you know what what you would overcome and you know the how how much she loved you. You know the program their levy and so it was like yes. I a an enthusiastic thumbs up from her so it was really need. Then that led to higher in. You know you've been there for those almost in august eight years. Yeah yeah ex story. And i can. I can talk about that maybe later but but yeah so so body was the counselor of the hundreds feels like that. I had.
