The Misinterpretation of Romans 13 With Rick Boyer
"What else do you say in the book, Rick? Talking let me give you just one example of how this improper misinterpretation of Romans 13 affects us. Back in 2013 or 2014, just before the Supreme Court's obergefell decision that purported to mandate gay marriage all across the country. You had a rogue federal judge in Alabama who ordered Alabama judges to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. While chief justice Roy Moore, at the time, was chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. And he said, no, he said the Alabama constitution defines marriage as one man and one woman. This is God's standard. This is the Alabama constitution standard. There's nothing in the federal constitution that would overturn this, and this rogue federal judge has no authority. You must issue marriage licenses only to heterosexual couples. Well, Russell Moore, no relation, who at the time was the head of the ethics and religious liberty commission for the Southern Baptist convention. He wrote a terrible piece demanding that if Christian leaders, Christian politicians, Christian judges can not enforce whatever they're told to enforce because of their convictions that they must resign and protest and just protest quietly as a citizen. Well, he'd forgot to tell Daniel this. When king Darius said, you can not pray to any God or man, but me for 30 days, Daniel didn't resign his position as the chief man in the kingdom, the number one of the three presidents underneath of Darius, in order to in order to retire to his closet or his church and keep his faith to himself while 6 days a week. He opened his window towards Jerusalem the same place he always did where he knew the people who were trying to trap him would see him do it. This was civil disobedience. It was protest. It was, again, a declaration that God is God and Caesar is number two. You look at Daniel's three Friends. Everybody else is bowing on the plane of dura to the statue to the golden statue. Daniel's three Friends didn't resign their positions. They didn't have some peaceful protests in their home or their church. They stood there on the plane of dura in front of the king in front of all the kings leaders in front of the whole nation, civilly disobeying and saying, we will not bow.

"And the article quotes Russell Moore, you know, the former Southern Baptist executive, who's an ethicist. They asked him, doctor Moore, what percentage of pastures do you think are really in the throws of deep struggle over the tension that they're feeling both on a political level but also on this whole COVID thing with mandates and all that? What percentage of pastures do you think are struggling today? And without a missing a beat, he goes, 100%. They all are. So this article was kind of interesting, Ken. You called my attention to it, and I did dive into it. It's a long article, but it's a very informative article from front to back. But it started in a surprising way to me, Ken, because this guy who obviously has church background. You know, he's a New York Times Best Seller writer. You know, he writes for the Atlantic and it's very sophisticated guy. But it sounds like he has roots in rural American Christianity. So I got that too. You know, and we've all driven through the countryside, you know? And we see these little churches everywhere, man. They pop up all over the place. And he picks these two little churches in this little town in Michigan. It's called Brighton. And there are two pastures there. One of the pastors that they're both in church is a lot like a hundred or 200 people. You know, but one of them starts out, he's a little hesitant to be political. And in fact, he was kind of anti Trump. He's a former druggy guy who became a Christian and then became a pastor. And then there's this other guy who voted for Trump, but he did it kind of reluctantly because of his commitment to pro life, but both of these pastures within a year of Trump's administration switched, the one guy became very political. And when he did his church exploded and it grew. This article explores the other guy who says, you know what? When I saw what was happening to my people, you know, I get them for like an hour a week maybe, but Rush Limbaugh gets some three hours a day, 5 days a week, and Fox News gets them for the rest of the time. And I'm watching what they're posting, the cruel mean spirited racist things that they're saying, I just can't do it anymore, and he decided to do a podcast where his whole podcast was a past his name is Ken, so there'll be three cans if we get him on. Yeah, three kids. Three kids. So pastor Ken gets his podcast going and his whole focus was to shatter conspiracy theories that his people were being told that they needed to believe. Well, you can guess that got him in a little trouble with his folks. Did you catch that? Because you read it too, right? One of my big takeaways was he thought that he can pick and choose what he was going to affirm around the mega stuff. So he says, okay, so I'm going to hold my nose and I'm going to vote for Trump because he's going to put conservative judges on the Supreme Court and it's all about anti abortion. But then after he voted, he realized that you don't actually get that choice. And that he was being sucked down that mega hole. And that's when he just, oh, you don't have the power, the privilege, the choice to just say, well, everything else I hate about him, but this thing, he's going to stand for that is like, no, it's all of a thing. Okay? And I think he's gotten so, so much pushback from the heavily maga white nationalist members of his little church and then there's that neighboring church across the way that's now got like 1500 people. He spends the first 15, 20 minutes. We're not talking worship songs, Ken. We're not talking, you know, meditation and prayer, he has what he calls the diatribe. Yes. Where he would just go all anti vaccine, he'll go all in. I don't know if he would call it replacement theory. But it's basically all far right talking. All the tropes, all the conspiracies. Right. And it's people love it. And the people. The people. They love their income, I don't know, 12 fold. It's just been crazy, right? For the church. That's right. Yes. So I feel like the temptation, you know, when you've been there struggling little towns country pastor for how long the temptation to just throw everything else that you thought was foundational and fundamental to what it's all supposed to be about because you're a big shot now and you got a new building and you got a nice car, you know, what is the profit a person or a pastor to gain the whole world and yet you forfeit your soul? Now there was another pastor in that article and then Greg Locke. Yes, I know about this guy. We had heard about him before. The article, which by the way, is entitled how politics poisoned the evangelical church. And that's what got our attention because it's right on point. Yeah, but this Greg Locke guys, we knew about him because he made headlines when he called out some women in his congregation as being witches. And he said, the Holy Spirit told me that these two women names him, their witches. Now what would have happened, Ken, when you were pastor in a church, did it ever occur to you? Maybe in your old private thoughts. There might have been a couple of women there. As soon as that spot came to your mind, you asked the Holy Spirit to forgive you for even having the thought. But what would have happened, man? No. I mean, I can honestly say I never had those thoughts. Maybe on occasion, if we're being honest here, where I thought of a word that rhymes with witches, but it wasn't. There you go. There you go. Okay, and even with the word, I would catch myself. Yes, yes. Well, I mean, we laugh about it because it is so absurd. And yet as absurd as it is, here is this guy who's got 3000 people in this big tent. By the way, that's only a beginning of his crowd because he's learned to use live stream on social media. He has a massive audience that goes beyond the 3000 that come to his tent and just and this is the Tennessee Tennessee in Tennessee. It's right outside the Nashville. It is. It is. Another guy he hangs out with is dinesh de Sousa, you know, who's right in there and Charlie Kirk. And Franklin Graham and Franklin Graham. Oh man. And I think the thing that is just so discouraging for all of us is to see these guys, you know, just cut loose in this way. And they become rockstars. And the money that flows in their direction is staggering. And I don't know for a fact at all. So I'm gonna make some supposition here..
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss the Decline of 'Christianity Today'
"John, I want to say this. On my last trip, the other day, I finished writing this article, I read, I don't, I no longer can read Christianity today, which frankly has said. It used to be a wonderful magazine. But they have gone. They've drifted left. And at Easter, on Twitter, I saw an article by Russell Moore. Okay. Now, I don't think of these people as my enemies. I think that we have differences. I read the article, it was mind bending. I couldn't believe what I was reading. It was so disturbing. I said, I think I have to respond. And I'm not like you. I don't think in terms of essays, writing an essay for me is very difficult. But I will tell you, I said, I have to respond to this. It took me a while, but the bottom line is that in the article that he writes, it is genuine, think of this, folks, genuine bigotry. People on the left are always accusing people on the right or people who voted for Trump as being bigots. 99% of that is pure nonsense. It's a vial lie. It's worse than nonsense. But here I was reading genuine bigotry, disguised as bigotry always is as something noble. And it was so offensive to me. I said, I have to write about it. So I wrote a piece about it. Let me jump in. What you saw was class scoring. The kind of nasty snobbish contempt that we don't see in undisguised form much outside of like Christmas Carol. Like when ebenezer Scrooge talks about, you know, well, if they're starving, let them get up, get on about it and reduce the surplus population. Don't we have prisons? Don't we have workhouses? Well, Russell Moore is ebenezer Scrooge to the Christian right.
Who Is Controlling the American Church?
"Who is controlling the American church. What if I told you that the federal government had infiltrated parts of American evangelical Christianity? Well, Megan basham from the daily wire has done some amazing investigative reporting on this and research Megan. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Megan, tell us you had an amazing video that I watched and I wanted to have you on the program. So build it out for us. How was the American church really infiltrated by left wing COVID narratives in the midst of the last two years? Well, you know, we've done a couple of extensive reports on this and they were all kind of condensed in that video. And it really started at the beginning of COVID when the federal government dispatched Frances Collins to he was the head of the NIH, the national Institutes of health, Anthony Fauci's boss, and he was dispatched to convince evangelicals to stop being resistant. And he's been very clear and on record on tape saying, I was sent to deal with evangelical resistance to lockdowns to mask mandates to vaccine mandates. So he went into churches. He had a lot of really strong relationships with what you might call the elite evangelical class, some very well-known pastors like Tim Keller, Rick Warren, and stetzer at the Billy Graham center at Wheaton college, Russell Moore, who was then head of the public policy arm of the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., which is the Southern Baptist convention. So just a really influential people. And he drew on those friendships to do interviews, podcasts, where he was presented as the strong Christian brother. To come on and give advice on how and why to submit to all of these COVID rules. And when he presented these things, he didn't do it just from a medical point of view. He, along with these pastors, presented it as this is how you show your love for Jesus. This is how you obey the gospel. And that was really something that they didn't just say, look, we're presenting a scientific point of view. Here is one scientist you might want to listen to. They didn't present any counter points of view from the scientific community, but that they really punched it up with if you want to love your neighbor. If you want to obey Christ, this is how you do it.
"russell moore" Discussed on ToddCast Podcast with Todd Starnes
"When you hear this tape. And I think at the end of the day, based on Russell Moore's comments and his behavior of late and who he associates with, I think the argument can be made that the Southern Baptist unknowingly put a Democrat at their highest policy level in the Southern Baptist convention. Well, you know, and it's interesting you say that because one of the really sort of riveting moments when I was listening to this tape was when Francis Collins and Russell Moore both placed the blame for hundreds of thousands of COVID deaths at former president Trump's speech. Well, regardless of how you feel about president Trump, there was just no rationale for doing that. There have been, there were fewer deaths under Trump administration, then there have been under Biden, even though they did not have the jump start of the vaccines at the previous administration had already been working on. They had Biden's administration that all the benefit of some of these sort of infrastructure to deal with the vaccine that Trump didn't have. And yet they were placing the blame of death on president Trump, which from a Christian point of view is pretty appalling 'cause you go one, it's just not factual. And in truth, there's a slanderous angle there that really shocked me. Yeah, well, let's call it a lie because that's what it is, Megan. I mean, going back to the early days. Remember, it was Donald Trump, who put the travel bans in place from China, which led Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats to raise wholly you know what? I mean, they were just adamantly opposed to any kind of travel stops stoppages. You had Trump out there who was leading the charge to get the vaccine created in the first place. It makes absolutely no sense. But again, they hated Trump from day one and they're looking for any opportunity they can to destroy this man. Yeah, and I'll tell you, I really wish I could get a chance to speak with Russell Moore I've been pretty public about maybe even at times being a little too enthusiastic, little too ingressive, aggressive about seeking an interview with him, but it's just so frustrating to go that these evangelical leaders who pushed one this COVID propaganda, but two have now been shown to have been operating for very political positions and very political motivation. They won't talk to anybody. They won't answer any questions. And if you push, you know, the answer is well. We don't like your tone or well. We don't really trust your motivation. So they answer to know when and you know, it doesn't have to be me, but you look back at what has happened over the last two years with a lot of Christians, a lot of Protestant leaders. And you go, there needs to be some answering for how they use their platforms to really keep a lot of burden on their fellow Christian shoulders. And as of right now, they're not talking. And I hope a lot of people out there will join me in.
"russell moore" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast
"So traumatized. He probably has PTSD to this day. Wow. Wow. You know, the way this really relates to what we're talking about from early on, is these narratives capture people's minds. I think that it makes them susceptible to these conspiracy theories and we wonder where they came from and we even go back and look at January 6th and we see so much religion. I don't know if you caught it, but Russell Moore interviewed Adam kinzinger on his podcast and it was an interesting conversation. Yeah, and Russell Moore goes, you know, it just made my blood boil to see all those religious symbols on January 6th. Specifically, Christian religious Christian, religious symbols, Russell Morse says and he goes, Adam, congressman kinzinger, you were there. You saw it. You heard it. And he said, he said, was were those Christian religious symbols just kind of on the periphery just a couple of bad apples or was it pervasive in what you saw? And kinzinger didn't even think about it. He said, Russell, it was a 100%. These guys were thoroughly convinced that they were on a mission from God. And they were rooting their prayers in the Bible and they believed somehow that they had been called on a mission from on high. It wasn't just a few. It was everybody. Um. Well, the whole mindset that buys into these narratives. I won't even say conspiracies. Okay, let's just be more general. These narratives, it's pretty hard to get a mind out of the accepted narrative. Especially if you've invested so much when I was doing research years ago about how to get people to change their mind. Because I think that would be a handy little skill to have. When I was still a pastor, you know, in the 1950s, there was a guy named doctor Leon festinger, and he was an American sociologist, and he found out about this cult based on an alien that was being fomented by a housewife in Chicago, okay? And she claimed that the superior alien race had appeared to her and revealed to her this higher truth and as cockamamie is that might sound to you and me. There was 1950s. There was people that were buying this. I mean, these were businessmen. These were college educated graduate students, truck drivers, a whole swath of people, okay? And a prophecy was issued through this woman that on December 29th stroke past midnight, 1954, the aliens were going to come and destroy everyone who weren't their followers on earth. And so these few followers had the task to go out and be missionaries and to convince as many people as possible, okay? So fest singer thought, since we're studying why people change their mind or don't change their mind, cognitive dissidents, all that stuff. Let's join the cult. Like, you know, we're going to still keep our wits about it. This we're not going to drink the Kool-Aid because what a fascinating study because this definitely has an end date of a minute past midnight on December 29th, 1954. We're not signing up to be in the call for the rest of our life. So he kind of joined in just because he wanted to watch it from close range. Yeah, and we want to see when because we don't think that's true. Right. He's walking in with assumption. Hey, you know, this is not, this is not going to happen. But I want to be I want to be there and see what happens when to them. Yeah, when the prophecy clearly is unfulfilled. False prophecy. Yeah, 'cause I want to see if they're going to go, oh, okay, gosh, we're wrong, okay? Right. Full disclosure, when I found out about this study, I had a special interest in it because I was born on December 29th, 1954. As 6 in the morning. So wait a minute. Are you the fulfillment of the prophecy again? No. Unto us. A child is born. To us a son is given. No, no, no, no. So a lot of these followers walked away from their houses, their mortgages, they walked out of their jobs. They were just prepared to be spirited out of here. Kind of in a wrapped sort of way. Yes. Well, festering owners crew, they're there when it's one minute past midnight December 29th, and nothing happened. So here's like, all right, now. And they're all in the room. Oh yeah, yeah, it's like, this level we want to see. Well, without missing a beat, the housewife comes before her clock and it basically says, news flash, aliens recently got back in touch with me. And they've been so impressed with our efforts to reach more people to become their followers. She got another word. That they've decided to delay the destruction of everybody and give us more time to do this. And so festival goes, now how many people are going to use your word calling bullshit? But they didn't. Okay, they're like, yeah. Wow. Oh, thank goodness. That makes so much sense. Okay, let's get back on our horses and let's do this. And what they concluded was when you've gone all in to a movement to a narrative. And you've lost friends. Maybe you've been denied employment. Maybe people think you're an idiot who used to be your Friends. And then you find out that things that you believe in aren't true, the potential shame of that. The horror of having to face that was so much outweighs the facts. Oh yeah. So there's just like, okay, so thank you for giving me an addendum to the narrative. So I can keep living because the alternative is to face the music. Now, to be fair, can we talked about all this stuff that we were taught? Our biblical areas and stuff like that. And I think there's a lot of that going on amongst our still conservative evangelical Friends. It's not going to change their minds with facts. And you say, well, okay, so Putin's forces just bombed a maternity hospital. Women were in labor and they were buried under rubble. Oh my God. You would think. That would change their mind. And it's starting to show a little cracks. But the alternative is, oh no, I've been part of something that's horrible. Wow. So yeah, what we're seeing is that once we commit ourselves to a narrative, and it becomes known that we've made that commitment. It becomes very difficult to backtrack and say, no, I was wrong. I was mistaken. I was misled. And you know, as you tell that story, just makes me think about voting. You know, when people vote. Even if they don't make it public, I've thought about this often, you know, there's a reason why, you know, we have these booze, you know, where we're in the privacy of this little space where we exercise our right to vote and the idea is that we're voting our conscience. We're not voting because somebody told us that we should think this way or that. You know, that in theory is what we're supposed to be doing, but there is this enormous pressure to be on this side or that. And once we make that commitment and it becomes generally known that we're part of this tribe, it becomes very difficult for us to admit that we made a mistake. Oh, yeah. We've had our Scott okamoto on both of our programs. Yes, we have. And he talks about growing up at this big conservative, mostly white, evangelical church in Pasadena, California, and yet somehow his parents ended up voting for Obama twice. That's right. Okay. And I think the first go around in 2008, they just kept it under wrapped. It was a totally on the down low. They let anybody know. Yeah, they let everyone else assume they were voting for the other guy, right? But the second time around, they couldn't contain themselves because they had so many problems, right? And with the other candidate, so they began to let their choice known, and they basically got excommunicated. Not that officially, but the Friends that they found for 20 plus years, all of a sudden. They're not talking to them. Yeah. Shunning could be kind of subtle, but it is anything but subtle. Yeah. Yeah. And I would say to our credit, yours and my credit, even though we kept being dispensationalists for so long, even though we kept buying into the whole American evangelicalism is the rightest way to believe is right with the belief. At some point, and it wasn't at all of a sudden point, you and I admitted that we had been misled that there were errors in our belief system. I want to make sure our respective listeners don't miss the fact that you can go through that looking glass. You can. Make it possible. But you know, I will say, Ken, even as we're talking about this, for me, and I think for you as well, it really took years. It took years..
Russia-Ukraine war: Some pastors wonder about "end of days"
"Russia's invasion of Ukraine has prompted some of America's prominent evangelical leaders to raise a provocative question they're asking if the world is now in the biblically prophesied end of days that might culminate with the apocalypse and the second coming of Christ among those broaching the issue recently are high profile mega church pastors Greg Laurie and Robert Jeffress Laurie says he believes we're living in the last days and the Christ could come back at any moment but evangelical theologian Russell Moore says it's wrong to try to connect world events to end times prophecy noting that Jesus himself said his second coming would be unexpected I'm Walter Ratliff

"Here's a quote and ambassador is one who is set to represent one country or government to another while the other country the ambassador presents and demonstrates all the best that their country their home country government has to offer since you're representing god's government and his abilities you have access to all the best he has to offer that's from branches worldwide. Like for you to notice that in the passage we just read in second trinian's five. Paul says that are true. Home is having that is our home. Country philippians three twenty. Paul declares our citizenship is in heaven from which we eagerly await a savior the lord. Jesus christ john seventeen fourteen says i have given them your word in the world has hated them because they are not of the world. As i am not of the world's first peter two eleven says beloved. I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from flesh lust which wage against the saul. So what are some characteristics of a good ambassador. One person suggests three major characteristics of a good ambassador a strong sense of patriotism to their home country always aware that there are. They are a minority in their host country entirely grounded in good ethical and moral judgment. Those are three characteristics of a good ambassador that comes from a secular source and so if we've established our home country then that first point strong sense of patriotism to their home country is powerful and the passages that i just read about being strangers and pilgrims as the way that the new testament presents the believer to be the second point is always aware they are a minority in their host country. Are you at peace with that. Does that resonate with you. Are you okay with that think. Sometimes we feel kind of threatened by that and feel like we somehow need to compensate for that and the third one entirely grounded in good ethical and moral judgments that should characterizes but as russell moore was reflecting he feels like the church increasingly is hiding. Its moral corruption and that is not that is not really selling the church very well to its to youth i'd like to now present marks of an ambassador of god. One of those marks is he must be a citizen of heaven. You can really not be an ambassador for christ. Without being a citizen of heaven. It requires that citizenship. You must be above reproach philippians to fifteen says that you must be selfless in. First corinthians fifteen thirty one we must be in constant in contact with the king with the throne of god we must be steadfast and loyal to that kingdom we must be diplomatic one five talks about how we must be diplomatic and we must know the language of the people among whom we live and in luke ten thirty three to thirty five it represents and so those are some marks of an ambassador. I think things we really need to think about if we're gonna take seriously our role as an embassador in our short time here. Here's some more things to think about as an ambassador and ambassador really doesn't appoint.

"That effort being put in the service of peace and reconciliation. Would there be any poverty with their crimes and worse just imagine that there was no longer fear among people no longer rivalry hostility. Bitterness or revenge we can say i can't imagine but god says that's what i imagine a whole world not only created but also living in my image that comes from a catholic writer challenging how we use what god has given us using its toward reconciliation. And god's call of peace rather than toward political advantage and positioning for protecting ourselves. That's from henry now. And the other is a really fascinating article that that was actually put on by plow publishing and dad russell moore spoke there and i had the article. It'd be worth your reading and it's possible could even be posted later below this or you could also email me for it. But the title of russell. Moore's article is integrity and the future of the church and in smaller heading. It says why are so many young people losing faith and what i find fascinating also is that he in the southern baptist. Tradition has been challenging. How deeply that wing of the church has been involved politically. And maybe a specially with a recent Political leadership and i'll just quote a few things. He said he was outspoken. Enough that his that the southern convention was was challenging with this thought that maybe the reason he departed the southern baptist denomination just in the past year or so because of that. He has tried to clarify that. It was not only that but also sexual scandals within his denomination that he felt. We're not very seriously taken. But he attributes the huge evangelical fall out of youth to the politicization of the church. And i find that really kind of fascinating and important for us as an anti baptist people to be able to hear and take maybe some warning from. I would like to just quote a few things he had to say. He said that when he was only fifteen on the verge of suicide and it was not because he was rejecting christianity because he felt like the western church was rejecting christianity and that was so depressing for him.
What We Can Learn About Christian Citizenship With John Zmirak
"There are many Americans that are looking to us. I talked to them on planes. I know that they are, they're worried about the times in which we live. And I know that God has allowed us the privilege of encouraging them and speaking the truth. You well, people listening to the program know that an hour or one I talked to Larry about the column, the article that he wrote in the spectator about this issue, he uses David French. It's not simply the single out David French, but it's an issue about how some Christians think and how it's not only faulty, but it's become very, very damaging. It's very harmful. And we need to correct it. And by God's grace, folks like David French and others will see this error by God's grace, I hope. But you yourself have written an article dealing with Larry's article and with this issue. So you write at stream stream dot org, the stream. Let's talk about that first and then we'll do something really fun, but we don't want to give it away. Go ahead. All right, I'm talking not just about David French, but some of the other writers who resemble whose arguments resemble his names like Russell Moore, rod prayer and stetzer Michael gerson people who were spectacularly and publicly anti Trump. At the time of a very close election. And when it was coming up to a very close election, where the balance was between electing this, the secret committee formally known as Joe Biden. This monstrosity that's happening around us that Joe Biden is the sock puppet for. Or voting for an imperfect candidate who made mean tweets, but tried to save babies.

Go do your own thing but you can't be here. Because as christians we deal with things directly Yeah amen to that and the only thing say about your situation with kirk kennedy but that confrontation that you had for the first forty five minutes to a lot of women was probably very uncomfortable and my wife be celery stairs. And i'm not even saying that in a negative way but oftentimes. That's how men deal with. Things are direct you. You're confrontational you. Address the issues and then things like what you said get to happen and you know the reconciliation can happen. But we don't even have men willing to do that to each other and they go and they act like women and they go gossip and become busy bodies and slander their brothers in continue to sin instead of at least confronting them and having some kind of masculine way to resolve things. And that's something that we're missing a lot from our side we're just letting the other side do whatever they want. Be the slimy manipulating weasels. They are manipulating week. Women that the bible says this is all in the bible. This is what the bible warns us about and tells us how to deal with this right dude. We gotta be men about this stuff. We we are. We are lead even if we don't participate in the gossip in the busy body nece and all that were encouraging it by not nip it in the bud right were encouraging it by letting them up this way. Russell moore has operated this way for his entire career. There's no way he should have been allowed to resign from the er. He should have been fired. The minute you found out he acted like this and it was just a pattern. He was never gonna stop you confront him. You do what you gotta do but then you him.

"Ronco. Is there gonna be hiring a new GM as John Elway after 10 years as the general manager of the Denver Broncos is stepping aside? From the role he's going to stay on as the director of football operations gonna be joining us here in just a few minutes, but big out Just give me your first thoughts when you heard the news, and I know you have Ah, really, really good relationship with John Elway. Obviously, he was your quarterback and You've carried on that relationship for a long time, right? Well, initially, I was like, Well, I get to see him or, you know, get to see Matt bit. Um um Matt Russell Moore. I'll get a chance to be in their lives more now that they have more time. And with John, Um 10 years is a long time for a guy who has retired from the NFL and had the kind of impact that he's had on the game. To be in that position and at 60 years old. I think that's not a bad decision. Now. If I was him, I would absolutely want to stick around. The game of football because it really is a great game. It really is a great game and the more that you can be around it and have a positive effect on the game. The better it is for you as individual because You always want to feel relevant Who wouldn't want to feel relevant after being So so so relevant to this entire organization both as a player and a front office member. You know, when you look at what The Broncos accomplished over the 10 years with him is general manager If you were to say to any team That look over the next decade. You're gonna go to two Super Bowls and you're gonna win one of them, but they're also going to be some serious growing pains and some serious hard times for the franchise. What team isn't going to take that right? And I think that The Broncos. Don't get paid Manning. If John Elway's not here. And the Broncos. Quite frankly. Don't get paid Manning. If John Box is not here, you know, like you got to remember how important that John Fox higher Woz. Because that Made everything around here. More relaxed. It gave everybody more. Um uh, they could Have Less of the pressure to deal with some of the things that we were dealing with. In the previous, you know, coaching deal with Yeah. John Fox changed everything. John Fox came in that higher of John Fox. You know, And I know he didn't killed a Super Bowl win. I get it. Gary Kubiak is responsible for that. But the higher of John Box or where this franchise was the I just never forget. The interview process in this new age of social media when the Denver Broncos members of the media uh We're posting guy's coming in for those interviews, and how open it made you feel as a Bronco fans need those? Oh, yes, is coming in and having a quick, you know, one minute interview with a guy in the car on the way to Dub Valley. I don't never forget how that made me feel as a fan that it was an open conversation about Getting things right and I loved it. It's It's tough because you know me. I am I. You know, I have good days and I have bad days and they could all be pointed to how the Broncos did know about. Listen, man, We're on the phone 30. Seconds after the game lives, right, right and the one thing That I think You exhibit that a lot of Bronco fans exhibit That you wear it on your sleeve. You know, I'm saying it's all out there. You know, when the Broncos aren't doing well, it just ruins your day. You know it just ruins it. Just ruins your mood for You know you're you're Weekly excitement and I think that Z I think that's probably fair to a lot of people around here to me. As a former player, it's not as Crushing as it is to guys like you who have paid their hard earned money as a season ticket holder and a stakeholder really in this organization for me, I look at it like what did they do wrong? Can they fix it? And you may just want to know that we went well, but I know you changed as a broadcaster Now. No, there's no There's no question. I mean, you I mean, you know this as well as anybody. I mean, uh, being around you has changed. What? I how I watched the game and you know, just in the conversations that we have, you're like, Oh, you noticed that you write it because yes, it has. It has changed. But you know for somebody who you know, I Craig Morton fan, right was you know a fan of all these guys that came through here, You know, Number seven stands up as as he is. He's one of the faces on Mount Rushmore, right of great Denver Broncos. Players. And now, obviously being a part of this organization the way that he has I do think it was. It is going to be interesting to see Who they get. And what their qualifications have to be because there are seven GM openings right now, and I cannot remember. Any time in my life. Where there has been seven openings in an off season seven in those seven openings. Um.

Whatever you think russell more or any other referee. It's hard real time sometimes to see something that's why they implemented the replay system but much like in the nfl or the nba when sometimes driven crazy by the not overturning calls or in some cases not even looking at controversial. Why have it if you're not gonna use it the right way even if it takes twenty six minutes at least get it right. I mean to go through all and potentially get it wrong. I could see heart of the argument where there was some wasn't a head but it was an accidental clash of heads and it did seem like after that happened that there was a mark under joshua. Franco's i like some slight mark. It seemed more to me that what you said is correct them with a lot of other people have said is correct that you know a stiff jab. Andrew maloney started the damage any landed. Several more of those punches in progressively got worse. So look i think the fair the fair outcome would have been for andrew maloney to regain his title. But i'll say this. Chris just for argument's sake say that was the outcome okay. Maloney winds back is title. He wins by tko and my mind. That's not the end of it. That's not the end of the road for those two guys because that's an unusual outcome to all right. Yeah you will have technically stopped but five months earlier he outboxed. Andrew maloney who was a heavy favourite knocked him down. Beat them up. Pretty good in the finance maloney's tough guy rate human being but the fact is he lost. I fight so let's say it was you look at it as a clear. Tko win for him in the rematch.

Don't extend the right hand fellowship to them. And that's harsh man. That's super harsh. The reality is I have to obey Christ there I have to trust God with the results there I hope I hope.

Thanks for what they should be doing is turning their backs on him and say no. Th The beatty I love Christ more than you. In fact I love you. That's why I have to do this. And going back to what we've talked about before of. Discipline your children. You hate that exactly when we don't treat people. The Way God requires us in commands us to treat people that are acting in a way. That's not appropriate. We're hating them and loving ourselves right. It is true. It's so true because he's not a child. Obviously, we're not saying the same discipline, but you have to follow the same God who has commands for each you know. It's not the same discipline relationship. It's Flynn though it. Yeah. And we're depriving, and it's not even that were harming others, and we're basically sacrificing them for ourselves and make us feel good, but it's not even it's more than that. It's you are hurting everyone else. That's listening to him. Seeing you do that and thinking Oh. This is okay I'm going to jump on the bandwagon it's this is a thick web that weaves through the culture. And until we cut it off in our Christian culture, it's going to continue the Levin the whole loaf. And it going to do destruction, and we're going to continue to lose friends, and we're going to continue to see church blitz, because no one's willing to cut these people off. That's right. That's right and the thing is like. There are some people. there are some people that do. And and so not only are his friends, not willing to do it themselves, but then the people that do they get called all kinds of mean sounding names mean your your social media sniping you all your the Sherman Logger. That's the worst one they think that one means a lot to certain that blogger and it's like the thing is like. Like the people that you call that stuff they don't care. You know why they don't care not because of the eagles, Eagles people in the world. No because they understand that God has command for them. And I came to this realization way too late way to eight people were people were saying this on that video. They're saying it's about time, and they're right I I I took way too long and in that video I said you know if a white guy was saying things that was saying. About blacks. Or White I. Did I would give him about two seconds to repent, and then when he didn't, it would have been done. And, so there's some there's some. There's something that that reveals about me. You know what I mean. That's on me. And so you know all y'all white people out there that are telling me how great he is. How helpful he is! How sorry you are that! He has to deal with social media sharks traumatic. It's like it's like first of all grow up. And second of all, would you think about other people besides yourself for once in your life? How about that? and. Ask yourself the question of why is racism worst sin for you to be identified with your so scared of it? Yeah, because the culture you live in has absorbed. You add something else. We are going to disobey what God has called us to do, and we're not going to stand up against the to beatty's of the world, because we're white, and what will water people going to call me a racist? That thinking and that fear does not come from the Bible that doesn't come from the Holy Spirit that comes from the culture that you've been absorbed into, and you're acting like the lots of the world that is longing for the city, and you're longing for that kind of culture in that acceptance and you. You don't WanNa play the fence. You WanNa be. You're just too comfortable. You maybe don't even know it. But you have to throw those garments away. You have to be obedient to God. That's the only thing that's going to save us, guys. It's the only thing yeah I meant. That's that's so true. That's another. That's another thing that this whole situation it's like. You never. You didn't get that from the Bible. I'll tell you that this is the worst possible thing ever that it's so bad that you don't even want you, don't you don't even want to. You. Don't want to say anything even if it's true that could be. Claim to be racist, but I got news for you. People that are doing this. Literally anything you do, people will claim it's racism. Matter what you do, so you? You are screwed either way. This longtime Minneapolis mayor. Bowing down just wouldn't defend the police and he was. The racist part of the problem probably would have been racist even if he did to fund the police. Oh, you're thinking the white savior now. I was talking to I forgot who is talking about, but it is that when Prov just rang true in my head, the grave is never satisfied. It was the grave, the horror and something else. They're never satisfied, and that's what this is. This is a grave theology. They're never going to be satisfied in. They're always going to be consuming people.

Jeff levering on WTMJ. Good morning, sir. Hey, good morning, everybody. So are you still in Minnesota? Did you move on to Pittsburgh, ready? We are in perogie Ville. Oh, nice. Ferment sandwich somewhere. Yeah. I might have to wait a little bit on that going to let my digestive system work myself into a per Monte brothers sandwich. I think it's gonna happen. But at some point a little bit later, what's there to do in? I mean I don't know. I, I wouldn't know what's there to do in Pittsburgh on an off day. Slam. I know. But I, I don't know I've only been to Pittsburgh once, and it was only for like, twelve hours, so I don't know what there is to do like New York. I know what there is to do in an off day, for example in Los Angeles. I know what there is today. For example. Sure. Sure. There's I mean, there's lots to do. We were actually discussing this a couple of days ago when we were on our way to Pittsburgh because we have off day, I was actually going to play golf this afternoon, but the weather's going to be pretty poor. So that was quickly cancelled. So there are some options, you know, you we might go over to a steel mill we could check out the river tour. They have ticky boats that go through the Allegheny these days, maybe that's an option. You know, we could do a whole lot of things in Pittsburgh. Moonlighting or something. No. You know, I was thinking about doing little flash dance. But that's not going to happen a little later. What I'm around. I know. You're right. That's a that's Doug Russell special there will be a family dinner tonight. So that's a good thing. There'd be a nice little broadcaster dinner at a, a play a great Italian place called the pleasure bars that is happening. Radio buddy. Jeff levering, bruise three sixty end WTMJ should talk, some baseball executives great start last night, making up for the one that was not so great here in Milwaukee, and then just one bad inning out of the bullpen and things kind of went sideways last night. Yet did Alex cloudy, gotta figure something out here. Pretty quick has his month of may not been great Craig counsel giving nice boat of confidence after the game saying, hey he's gonna get left. He's out just didn't happen last night, and gives up things got kind of sideways with a bad play by Casten here. Trying to do little bit too much on the ground ball. But, you know, max Kepler and Eddie Rozario the to the hottest hitters in the league. And they're the ones that ended up getting the brewers a little bit yesterday. But the get a couple of home runs late Grondahl hits a home run from the right side of the plate kissing here hits. Another home run goes the opposite way. So there are some signs of positivity ended up being five three game birds you're gonna have to figure out ways to score runs here in Pittsburgh. That's been there issue over the last couple of years. So. Hopefully over the weekend the weather holds up person foremost. And then if the weather's good hopefully balls are flying out of the ballpark. The bluish course runs as you mentioned testing here ahead, another home run last night as well. I know that there's a little bit of a body of work on here right now, what point? And maybe the maybe the answer is right now at what point do you think he's a legitimate major league player on an everyday basis, not just kinda called up for when Travis Shaw got injured? Well, I think you gotta give guy in this circumstance least fifty to one hundred at bats and just kind of see what he can do. And then and then kind of reevaluate at that point. You know, in Casten spin cast defense he's going to be able to hit this first taste in the major leagues. He's done a pretty good job. He's not in the world on fire but you know what? He's a pretty good job. And he's playing second base at pre decent level, too. I think the most important thing is, is figuring out what Travis Shaw's going to do because he's down in San Antonio right now. He had one hit in his entire have assignment till yesterday had a couple of heads. So that's a good thing. Maybe he's starting to turn the corner. But the most important thing is making sure that he gets right? And if he comes back and he's an effective hitter at the big league level, it's going to help out the brewers offense whether he's playing first base maybe play some third. You gotta find a way to get him in the lineup again, if he is going to be effective, but he's got to find his swing. More importantly, I think I'm pretty confident the Casten here is going to do good job once he gets comfortable in the big leagues. You reevaluate that I think, for casting about fifty to one hundred at bats radio play by play man Jeff laboring. Joining us live. I'm brewers three sixty.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin the southern Baptist convention is facing calls criminal investigations into sexual abuse within the denomination this after two Texas newspapers published reports showing over the last two decades, Baptist leaders employees volunteers sexually abused more than seven hundred people many of them children, and Marie Miller is one of the survivors. She was sixteen years old when her family left, a small town in Texas and moved to Dallas she was searching for connections and she met a local youth. Pastor who is in his mid twenties. It started as just a casual friendship, but it did get more physical and sexual as we continue to meet after it ended Miller thought of it as a relationship gone wrong until years later when a friend told Miller about her own experience of sexual assault by a Baptist youth pass. She said it so perfectly. She said, I wasn't it wasn't consensual. I was compliant. So at the age of sixteen even legally I was not able to give consent in two thousand seven Miller reported her assault to Baptist church officials. They determined that it did happen. But they never fired her abuser. Who then found another position within the church last year? Miller who is now thirty eight years old reported him to the police in December. He was indicted for sexual assault of a child. I asked Anne Marie Miller. What went through her mind when she read the investigations in the newspaper. I think it's wonderful. And I know a lot of people are shocked with the amount of victims and amount of predators there were. But I know I know for a fact that there are so many more the SPCA has failed in a huge way to be proactive in stopping abuse that they know about because they have this. I call it the idol of. Autonomy each churches local on each churches responsible for its own action. Right. It's not like the Catholic church where there's a big hierarchy in each churches beholden to a larger church structure. And ultimately the pope. This is a decentralized kind of system is decentralized, but that's just an excuse because if you know that people are getting abused, and you know, that you have pastors and leaders doing it. And yet you don't do anything about it. You are not the filling the mission of protecting the most vulnerable, which is what Jesus was all about. So the leaders of the southern Baptist convention of the president JD Greer, also Dr Russell Moore say clearly this is evil. It is something that needs to be wiped out. They also say Dr Russell Moore did on our program that some tangible changes need to occur. I wanna play a clip of him from our interview. There are a number of steps. One of those institute with training churches. To know how to respond when there is a case or a suspicion of case. And then there has to be a way to connect churches to one another to know win. There has been an incident or an allegation of abuse happening at another church to prevent someone from simply moving from one church to the other the cover of darkness. What do you make of that? I hope that it happens. I think those are very realistic first steps, I know, Dr more personally, and he Mr. girl have been supportive of of me personally during this time, and I have good faith. And then I don't know if it's going to happen because people have been suggesting those very things to them over the last decade or more and they haven't been implemented. They're missing a very key component. I think is great. And it's an essential to protect future people from being harmed and project predators from moving from church to church, but what are you going to do about the survivors? Now, I can tell you. That myself included. It is going to be here a cold day in hell when I step back into a bag could stretch like you're not helping heal the damage, and there definitely needs to be something for victims. We need counselling we need resources. Our families have been traumatized by this. And just by keeping out within the church, you're going to miss L majority of the people that have been hurt by the church because most of us that have been hurt by the church are no longer in the church. You say you are no longer a member of southern Baptist congregation. But have you been able to more broadly rebuild your faith Christian faith? That's a touchy subject for me. I I haven't I've gone through three phases. Where I think I have. But then there's always comes back around. And I'm just not sure sorry. Don't mean emotional. I know. And I know that there's there's Jesus I will even choose this. But it breaks my heart to know that there are women who have destroyed other men and women and children under the cheese and in God's name and cuts house. And so I don't know if I can see the churches safe place again, I really don't. Anne, Marie Miller. Thank you so much for talking with us and sharing your story. Thank you so much for listening Ameri Miller was sexually abused by a Baptist youth pastor in the nineteen nineties. She is now a writer in Texas. Now, let's hear some of the teachers on strike in Denver, Colorado. They begin their third day out of school today and some spoke with Jenny Brian dean of Colorado public radio. It's the first teacher strike in Denver in twenty five years. Teachers say the district just began bargaining in the last few weeks despite negotiations that started fifteen months ago. That's one reason teachers.
Southern Baptist leaders and workers abused hundreds, report says
"Martin. There is a reckoning afoot in the southern Baptist convention. It's the largest Protestant denomination in the US. And it's now in the middle of a sex abuse crisis this week, the Houston chronicle published a comprehensive investigation that counts. More than seven hundred victims of abuse by church leaders of the last two decades. There was a huge diversity both in the abuse type the age of victims. But virtually all of the victims were children, that's Robert down in one of the reporters on that investigation. While there have been high profile an individual sex abuse allegations against southern Baptist leaders in the past the Houston chronicle report lays out just how widespread the abuses. Ben what knowledge exactly leaders had. I don't know. But I think that it's pretty fair to say that this stuff was out there. And there was a group of vocal people who were basically yelling as loud as they could that this was a crisis. To find out. How church leaders are responding to the results of this. Invest investigation. I spoke with Russell Moore he heads the ethics and religious liberty commission of the southern Baptist convention. So how could this kind of abuse go on for so many years in so many different congregations? Well, they're number of reasons, and none of them have good from excusable one of the things that's happened. Is that a church which is supposed to be should be the safest place in the world. For people has often been a place where creditors believed that they can hide. And unfortunately, too, many churches have either had the understanding that that these sorts of things couldn't happen to them because their churches and haven't been vigilant and churches that have taken a wrong headed in view of grace to believe that somehow that means and excusing of. Predatory behavior or of not seeing the role of the civil authorities and recording right away. There are so many horrific reasons behind this happening. So you're suggesting that internally each church, which has a lot of autonomy. Even if they were aware of the allegations, they may have put religious doctrine religious notions of forgiveness over accountability. Well, I think in many cases, there was an understanding of forgiveness and grace and reconciliation doesn't match up with what the bible teaches Jesus never in anyplace excuses, the harming of vulnerable people and children and others. And so this is a human crisis. And it's also a theological crisis the Houston chronicle as part of their report says church officials did know were encouraged to make reforms and we're not interested in doing. So do you know why often in church autonomy has been used as an excuse for a lack of accountability? Our polity does make this harder. Because each jerk is independent and church doesn't answer to Bishop arena above us. But that doesn't mean that there aren't. Things that can and should and must be on. And so that that means that the hard work has to be done to see how that can happen not to Easter autonomy as an excuse. So what are some practical steps that churches, and the broader southern Baptist convention can take in this moment. It's one thing to say this is a sin. This is an outrage. How do you make sure it doesn't happen again? Well, there are a number of steps. One of those institute with training churches to know, how to respond when there is a case or a suspicion of case that has to do with also training ministers at the very end of their ministries working with seminaries and universities to do that. And then there has to be a way to connect churches to one another to know win. There has been an incident or an allegation of abuse happening at another church to prevent someone from simply moving from one church to the other undercover of darkness the Houston. Chronicle says in its report that at least one. One accused sex abuse offender remains to this day in his church position. Do you think that should be the case? Absolutely not. I think that in every case someone who is a a sex offender should not only be removed from any ministry leadership and disciplined by local congregation about should also be handed over to the civil authorities. Does that mean you will follow up on the Houston Chronicle's reporting and try to pass that message down to the to the local church? Yes, if I mean, this is alcohol the congregation directly. Do you see parallels to what's happening within the southern Baptist convention and the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic church? Yes, I do because both are a crisis of credibility. Someone should know that we may step into a church that they're in a place that is going to be safe in a place that is going to be advocating that the most strongly for those who are the most vulnerable. And so they're very much is a parallel there. What I hope is that what happens out of that is genuine reform that will ensure that the next generation of people don't have to face these questions
