A highlight from Real Estate Agents: 6 Top Income Destroying, Time Wasting Mistakes

"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Three, two, one and Julie Harris. We are back. And today we're going to be talking about six of the worst income wrecking mistakes agents are making in today's market. But before we get to the first point, I think you have a really great story from our friend in LA, Federico. Yes. Who is not making the deal wrecking mistakes. In fact, this story, I hope the listeners pay attention because it's going to wind a whole bunch of things together. That's right. So we're starting off by telling you the story of what happens if you don't make six of the income wrecking mistakes with this story. And then we're going to get into the weeds as far as what you need to be avoiding. That's right. Okay. So this is a text from Federico who lives and sells in Los Angeles. He says, hi, Julie. This is hot off the presses right from maybe a couple of days ago. Federico says, I just finished showing clients a new construction community while the build rep was showing us the model, a lady walked in and asked if she could listen in on the build reps presentation. She communicated that she and her husband were looking to downsize and was asking the builder how the financing would work. Okay. So let's stop just for a second. How many of you listening in Los Angeles believe that there's no new construction around? We could just start with that point, but moving forward, uh, during that conversation, I asked her what her situation was and asked if she needed the funds from the sale of her property in order to close on the one she might be looking at. That led to the build rep stating that they would only finance her if her current home was in escrow. So there's a lot to that too. Which by the way, that's probably the build rep not really knowing anything about how to, you know, sell a house using financing because the reality of it is, is the builder wasn't actually using their own money. They were using a mortgage broker and she probably still could have worked that deal, but she was looking for the easier deals of people that had no home sale contingency. That's right. And we're using kind of a lame objection handler. No, you can't do that. Exactly. Which positions our friend Federico listening. That's right. Now, when the build rep exited the room, she thanked me for helping her articulate her points. This is the walk -in potential buyer and asked if I could email her all the information for the new build to which I responded that I was the agent for the other couple in the room, but that I would be happy to help her. That led me to, led me to asking her to, uh, how soon she needed to go on the market. When she responded, uh, we are still decluttering. I don't know where to start or how it all works. I asked her where the home was and what they were asking and asked when I could stop by and see it since I may already have someone. How many of you guys would have gone for the appointment right then and there? Think about that. She answered, that sounds great. We need to declutter first. So I won't, it won't be possible until at least later next month. Let me also work on my husband as far as the new purchase goes and then we can schedule an exact date for you to come by. I got her contact information. Another mistake that agents sometimes fall into. I got her contact information and stopped the conversation since I did not want to be rude in front of my existing clients there. When I left the showing, I called this lady. There's the immediate fallback, uh, follow up. I called this lady back to continue the conversation and to schedule a tentative day and time to go look at the property. She said that she and her husband will be going on a short trip and that we can circle back after my trip. We'll only be gone for a week. During the call, she asked me what commission I would charge. By the way, people don't ask that if they're not serious, do they? Okay. She asked about my commission to which I said, that's a great question. I actually have a flexible fee. What's the best email for you so I can send you a little bit about me and my team and about how we work. That'd be the pre listing package. That way when we meet at the house, we can focus on the items that are most important to you. Also part of the script you learned in premier coaching. It's a textbook. Totally 5 ,000 % textbook. She gave me her email, thanked me for helping her while at the new construction and expressed that she was excited to have me come by their house. There you have it. Now certainly by the way, dad, on what you said with regards to the people asking about commission that quick, 99 % of the time when they ask out of the gates like that, it's because they've got another agent in their back pocket, which it probably isn't a professional agent in the sense that maybe it's somebody they just know as their neighbor or uncle Bob who basically lists the house every thousand years or something like that, who will probably do it for free. That type of question was that the agent, I'm sorry, the seller was looking for a reason to take uncle Bob out of the equation because she really liked Federico and wanted to do business with him. Most importantly though, to your point, he used the scripts that we teach these guys to use in premier coaching and that was one of the obvious scripts that we use that you learn when you're presenting the pre -listening pack and the listening presentation. All this was woven together and what we're trying to express to all of you, so hopefully you're all understanding, is there's opportunity everywhere. You just have to go where the opportunity is and quit waiting for the opportunity to come to you. Which leads us, Julie, perfectly into point number one and remember guys, these are the top six income killing mistakes that agents are making now and frankly in a lot of cases have normalized. That's right. So point number one or mistake number one, and we're also going to have some action steps how to fix these problems ASAP. Mistake number one, playing the waiting game, waiting for the market to crash, waiting for interest rates to come down, waiting for inventory. Waiting doesn't get transactions into your pipeline, nor does it help your clients and prospects to achieve their goals. You must take control of your day, your week, your month, your quarter, and your year in order to defeat the waiting game. Say this at least 10 times, if it's meant to be, it's up to me, and then take control. We're going to give you some action steps here. All right, so first action step on this mistake, accept the fact that there are zero indicators that the market's going to crash. Zero. Remove it from your head. While there are some price ranges in some markets this year where it's set to, I'm sorry, where there are some price reductions is what that should say in some markets, this year is set to close with between five and 9 % increase in home values. I wonder how many people actually know that. I mean, with all these headlines that are supposed to basically make you think there's a housing crash, do you all know that real estate in the mainland United States is increased in value by at least 5%, in some cases around 10 % year over year? So yes, despite the headlines about prices falling, home values have still increased. That's right. Now, low inventory, stable demand, lots of new construction, and rising prices are not indicators of a housing crash. Those things do not exist in a housing crash. Now, if any of that changes, you can hear about it here, we'll let you know. So it's important that we remind them that we are at, what, a 20 or 30 year low for the number of mortgages that are in any sort of distress? Yes. It's like less than 3 %? It's less than 3%, a historic low, and that includes all of the forbearances and things that happened around COVID. That's all baked in at this point. Do you remember all the people that were, you know, of course, these real estate prognosticators were trying to sell you lists on how to get into REOs and all this other stuff? How they were saying, oh, you wait until all those people on mortgage forbearance, all those COVID mortgage forbearances, those houses are all going to default. None of them defaulted, did they? You see how there are some people, guys, who only think that they can make money, only think they can help people when the market's going one particular direction. So what they do is they wait around and hope and pray that the sky falls so that they can be right. And that is, I suppose, a business model. But the reality of it is you can help people make money no matter what direction the market is going. You don't just have to wait for the direction that it's been going. For example, a lot of you, to Julie's point, were waiting around for their interest rates to lower, waiting around for the mortgage stuff to clear, become easier, inventory to increase. Stop waiting around. There's inventory everywhere. It's not just where it's like what Federico discovered. It's hidden, in essence. You have to go to where it's at. You have to go to where the market opportunity is. Stop waiting for the market opportunity to show up on your computer screen. Yes. And when you go to new construction where he went, especially in those price ranges, go where the buyers are looking. You will also find listings. That's right. OK. So again, we're back to the waiting game. So you said that. So we have to drill down. Because I always have to remind myself and you that we have people that are maybe listening to us for the first time ever. And yes, this is the number one Listen To Dilly podcast for real estate professionals in the United States. Tens of thousands of people downloading it. But for the one person that's discovered this for the first time, defining what Julie just said, if you're going to, as Federico did, go look, essentially show buyers or go to a new construction area where the new construction is, say, $800 to, say, on up, chances are the person purchasing one of those new construction homes, they're going to have a house to sell. So that means that probably realistically 90 % of the buyers, air quoting here, that are interested in new construction actually also are sellers. But how many of you think like that? How many of you think buyer or seller? You can't be both. Always assume that your buyer is actually a seller and where you focus your energy is on the listing side of things, because that's what's going to be the juggernaut to them moving forward with any, you know, like they're not going to buy anything but to sell the home most likely. So you can't, if you just focus on the buy side of the conversation, you're never going to get to where the real opportunity is on the list side. Once you have the listing, you will obviously sell that house, well, we've done studies on this, you'll sell an average of six other houses off one listing. With a buyer, you will sell a buyer a house. So open your mind to the opportunities that are all around you. Stop thinking and stop sitting around waiting for, you know, something to change. You're the change that needs to happen if you're not liking your, you know, your project, your your momentum right now into the new market. Yes. And you uncovered another mistake, which is assuming that, you know, it's just it's another buyer. I already am up to my eyeballs and buyers and there's no inventory. So why would I want another buyer? You're missing the point. Buyers bring listings and in those price ranges in the right range, you can get buyers who have a listing that are less expensive than the new construction and more expensive than the new construction downsizing. You can actually work both ends of that. Well, it's a frustrating it's frankly the wrong way to go about it. If you're trying to sell a buyer a house and try to find them the right house, the perfect house, all the rest of it, yet they have a house to sell. I'll give you a little advanced coaching here. None of them are going to emotionally commit to purchasing something unless they happen to have the cash to pay for it, which is unlikely. You know, they're not going to have the cash without the sale of their current home. So they won't emotionally commit to anything until at least their first their existing home is listed for sale, let alone in contract. So this is the type of, you know, thinking you need to adjust towards and realizing that the best opportunity is always going to be on the listing side of the business. That's right. So here's the thing back to a point or mistake. Number one, waiting around. Well, what about interest rates? Interest rates will eventually get lower, but are not likely to go below five and a half to six and a half percent, maybe even for the rest of your career. What we just went through is not the norm. So stop wishing for the old market and embrace the new market. Now, that said, there was an interesting there are some political hubbub that's floating around about the fact that, you know, different politicians are starting to lobby for the idea that there's going to be I told you about this. I heard that crazy permanent 30 year mortgages at three percent, which I mean, it sounds great, right? Even if it were four percent, it would be pretty interesting. Well, yeah, they're going to sell like 100 year bonds and finance it and the whole thing and that could stimulate something. Oh, my gosh. But it's also going to well, so let's think about this. You're going to massively increase demand. And what that's what is that going to do to the cost of real estate as well as inventory available? Right. So you might have a low interest rate, but, you know, the four hundred thousand dollar house you're interested in buying is now worth two million. So anyway, I would circle the wagons back probably to new construction if that happens. We'll see. We'll see. We'll monitor that. OK, so the weighting gain. Learn about several ways to achieve a lower rate and a lower payment. What rates are higher than a lot of people want? Refer to last week's podcast about three ways to achieve lower mortgage interest rates. Learn about what the builders are doing. Many new home loans are closing today in our times where rates are over seven. The new construction loans are closing the mid five, five and a half range right now. So take action to find out where in your market is that actually happening? All right. So mistake number two, there was a lot wrapped up in number one, number two, expecting your buyers to send you what they want to look at versus finding the right homes for them yourself. We've done so many podcasts. I know, but this is such a mistake. You know, yes, we know that buyers can find listings online. There's five million different resources. But what happens when they take them to you? Isn't it already in contract? Aren't there already multiple bids? And then you believe there's nothing and you wait for them to go discover something. It is not their job to find something. And furthermore, well, let me get in my points. I probably talked about this. So get and use the buyer presentation, which drills down on specifically what your buyer clients desire in their next home. That can be a mistake is not knowing the specifics. What is a deal maker and what's a deal killer? Are both people on the same page? If you're working with a couple, can you handle objections like I want to wait for rates to come down or prices to come down or both? We talked about that previously. Now, once you know what they need, that they are motivated and they're qualified, it is your job to find them the right home. Think out of the box. Refer to our podcast series about how to find inventory. So, for example, consider changing the type of property, single family to maybe a town home or a condo or vice versa. And the price range, in fact, sometimes going a little bit down market can actually find good alternatives, expanding the geographic search or looking at new construction. And there's a counterpoint here. I've been working on this with coaching clients, OK, which is when a buyer does send you that magic listing. I got to see that. They're really juiced up about it. And that's the only thing they sent you today. OK, so why that one versus everything else that they saw? Ask them why that one and then have two or three backup houses set up. You can always cancel showing appointments. Right. Because what if they're wrong? What if the MLS pictures didn't have the power tower in the backyard? Have another plan. You have a showing appointment. Go sell something. Does that make sense? It does, of course. But I mean, I just we could talk forever about this point because there are so many different places where they can go and look for homes that are officially for sale. But really, I was thinking if I are coaching somebody right now, this you're gearing a lot of your points towards too many buyers, basically. Yeah. And your last point, I really like because you're in essence saying, well, make make it so that the buyers are working with because there's never a true have to buy buyer. There's always want to buy buyers. In other words, there's never a buyer. There's buyers will always change their mind. That's the problem. They're always going to say, I'll wait till next year to raise the fall, wait for pigs to fly, whatever it's going to be. Whereas if you're focusing on a listing, the sellers actually have to sell usually for financial reasons or, you know, whatever it just overall right now, obviously you're going to make more money and have more leverage and freedom if you're focused on being a listing agent. So what would happen if you decided to actually become a coaching client, actually follow our system, actually build up to your magic number of listings, which for many of you is maybe five or seven listings, sometimes depending on your price point, might only be three. And the only buyers you work with are those are the sellers that want to buy something. In other words, stop working with buyers that don't actually have homes to sell. Start valuing your time more and you'll get far better results. But it's also going to force you to become a far better listing agent, far better, you know, proactively generated for the sake of listings. And you're going to get vastly better at prequalifying because you're going to be, guess what, choosing who you're going to work with. So if you're finding yourself emotionally and financially burning it at both ends, it's probably because you just don't have any standards. It's probably because you're working with just about anybody. You're willing to pay referral fees. You're buying all your buyer leads. You're not really running a business, guys, in the sake that, you know, you're going to have any kind of, frankly, security going forward. So really pivot your thinking and ask yourself, would I rather be a really amazingly strong listing agent or buyer's agent? Every single one of you want to focus on being a listing agent in a lot of ways. You have to kind of choose because the buyers will suck up all your energy and your time. Now, if you want to transition from being one to the other, go back to the fact that, you know, you need to prequalify better. You need to actually ask those buyers if they have homes to sell. Depending on the price point, you're going to discover that most of them do. And then guess what you do? You pivot and focus on the listing side of it because that's when you're going to create the leverage. Joining our premier coaching program is free.

Or you can just, frankly, go to premier coaching dot com or text the word premier to 47372. All right, Julie, let's roll up to mistake number three. Mistake number three. Yep. All right. Not having enough leads in the first place. Speaking of lead generation, if you're struggling with lead generation, it's time to get some help before it's too late. Now, more than ever, it's critical that you generate more leads than you think you need in order to do the business you need to do. To your point that no buyer ever actually has to buy. So you have to overdo your lead generation so that you can find those listing leads in particular. Well, if you want to sell, for example, if you want to sell 10 houses in the next six months or maybe it's the next 60 days or next 30 days. And normally, let's say you are you know, let's assume that you're somewhat efficient and you know, you have a ratio. Let's say, for example, if you have 10, well, let's say you have six seller leads, you know that statistically three or four of those are going to list with you in the next 30 to 60 days. You're going to need to double that in a market like this because people are there's going to be a lot of a lot of headwinds that you're not necessarily going to be able to control, mostly with lack of inventory. So you're going to have to pace out your expectations and increase the number of contacts and increase the number of leads you're working with. But it always goes back to really drilling down the leads you are working with. Otherwise, what you're going to quickly discover is that you have hundreds, if not thousands of unqualified, unmotivated, quote unquote, leads, and none of them are doing transactions with you. And why? Because you're not taking the time to go in there and prequalify them. If you're one of these agents who have falsely believed that the way to win this game is by having massive amounts of leads, I challenge you to do this. Go in, grab our seller prequalification script or our buyer prequalification script, which turns into the seller prequalification script, and call every single one of your leads. You'll discover many things. Number one, the ones you've been dripping on for a long period of time. Some of them don't even know why you're messaging them or have never even seen your messages, let alone know who you are. Number two, some of them already transacted months ago, but you didn't call them. So they didn't transact with you. Number three, you're going to find people that are actually motivated and they're waiting for you to call. You've been treating them like a buyer and sending them home buyer tips and all the rest of it through your drip campaigns. But now because you have them on the phone, they'll actually commit to working with you. You've got to stop being passive with your life, but especially with your lead generation. Well put. So that all goes back to not having enough leads in the first place. So sign up for Premier Coaching with our Harris certified coaches because they're going to start by asking some specific questions like, where did your past five transactions come from? Was it luck and hopium or did you connect with those clients through a proven system or strategy? If it was a proven system or strategy, why did you stop doing it? How many leads do you actually have in your pipeline? To your point, what your story, you were just saying, what I was thinking is a lot of agents think that they're leads, but they're just contacts. They're just people in your database. Why are you calling them leads? You don't know if they're a lead or not because you're not talking to them. Now you also might have a lead conversion issue versus a lead generation issue. That's something that the coaches drill down on. Where are you spending money to generate buyer and listing leads and what is that conversion ratio and how many contacts are you actually making daily where you're speaking with a decision -making adult about real estate? That's just the beginning of great coaching questions to drill down on why you might not have enough leads or appointments. Well, where you're spending money to generate buyer and listing leads. I mean, obviously it was assumptive, right? In other words, she's not suggesting you spend money to generate buyer and seller listing leads. Uh, but she's suggesting that you actually go in and question, frankly, uh, whether or not that money that you're spending to generate leads from those sources actually makes any sense because we know you're doing it.

A highlight from Episode 10 The Drama of Atheist Humanism Fr. Joseph Fessio S.J., Vivian Dudro, and Joseph Pearce FBC Podcast

"Ignatius Press and the Augustine Institute present the Formed Book Club. Catholic book lovers unpacking good books, chapter by chapter. If you like us, please help us by subscribing, and by reviewing us on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you might listen. And don't forget to sign up for weekly updates and study questions at formedbookclub .ignatius .com. Welcome again to the Formed Book Club. We continue to discuss Ari de Dubac's extraordinary book here, The Drama of Atheist Humanism. We've done enough now that we can maybe situate where we are as we go forward. You know, the first part, called Atheist Humanism, focused on Feuerbach, Marx, and Nietzsche, with a side note on Kierkegaard, but now part two is Auguste Comte and Christianity. And covered we the first chapter here, the meeting of Comte and Atheism. We're on the second chapter, Christianity and Catholicism. There's four sections, we took antisocial Christianity, where he claims that Christianity is antisocial, because it's basically the soul and God and eternity. Part two is section two is Jesus and St. Paul, where he says St. Paul corrected Jesus and set things straight. Now we're on two interesting parts here, the work of the Catholic priesthood and the Holy Alliance. So we begin again on page 192, section three of chapter two, chapter one of part two. The work of the Catholic priesthood. Joseph, take it away. Well, again, right at the beginning of the first paragraph of this section, towards the top of page 193, it's his weird understanding of history. He seems to believe that Catholicism, strictly speaking, did not come into being until the 11th century, and which by the 13th had already passed into the phase of decadence. So basically the Catholicism didn't even come into being until a thousand years after Christ and only lasted for a couple of hundred years before it basically decayed. So if you're going to begin your understanding of the church with such a warped understanding of history, it's no surprise that all sorts of odd conclusions are going to be the consequence. And the reason why he dates it that way has something to do with what Father said in his introduction. He thought Christianity, in its essence, was something that just had to do with the individual and God. And so if what he wants to worship is the collective, well, that reaches its apex, if you will, in terms of social organization in Christendom, right? So what he thinks is the essence of Christianity are these exterior forms holding together a cohesive society. And that just comes and goes, right? It came and it went, in his view. But if you're looking at worshipping the collective, it makes sense that that's why you would look at it that way. He's mistaking the tree for the fruit, isn't he? I mean, this good thing was a consequence of a thousand years of of inheritance, and it took that long for it to actually mature into the fullness of what you might call the High Middle Ages. But it's obviously a fruit of the thing, which is Catholicism. The thing didn't come into being as some sort of spontaneous combustion, evidently. Yes. I mean, the first quote in that paragraph at the beginning on page 192, where Cope says, since the year 1825, our writings have shown an increasing respect for Catholicism, as he understands it, the immediate and necessary precursor of the religion that has, above all, to consolidate and develop the structure that first took shape in the 12th century. And again, you have this theory of Catholic history that it was just a kind of amorphous movement of Jesus, you know, love and be kind and compassionate. And then after it became a state religion or approved by the state under Constantine in the fourth century, it became hardened in its structure. Oh, but then we have what secular theologians call the Dark Ages. And after the fall of the Roman Empire, there was a lot of confusion, but the church was still present in her God -given form during that period. But he sees, as you said, Vivian, at the end of the Dark Ages, he'll call your Middle Ages, 12th or 15th century, here's where there's a consolidation, and you see the social character of the church in Christendom. By the way, you know, de Lubac writes this during the 40s, his first major work was in the 30s called Catholicism, the social aspects of dogma, in which he made very clear that from the beginning, the Catholic faith has had an intrinsic social connection, which makes sense as a church, after all, we're not an aggregate of individuals who have no relation to each other, except for the fact that we happen to hold the same attitude towards Jesus. Sorry, I'm wandering on there. As Chesterton said in, I think, The Everlasting Man, it could have been orthodoxy, that the church was the only thing that was the bridge that connected the civilization of Rome with the civilization of the High Middle Ages. The church was the connector between the two, the bridge, so it's not as if it just arises out of, as if by magic. And that's what he, he's an everlasting man, where he calls Christ the Pontifex Maximus, the greatest builder of bridges. This Pontifex, pontiff, we have in English, means pawns, bridge, fatre, to make, to build. So it's basically the bridge builder. But he reduces the papacy to being the centralized authority of the church. And, and so he actually wants to replace the pope with himself. But he's actually going to require such total obedience and control, unlike anything the church ever did or ever desired to do. But yes, he talks about on the top of 196, it was by this means, meaning the papacy, that the bonds of society were strengthened. He sees that you can't have the strong bonds of society that he aspires to, you know, a humankind in love with itself without a total authority at the top. Yes, and as we're progressing into the heart of Auguste Pont, you know, Burubak has all these citations that really back up what he's saying about him. I just wonder, he's a brilliant madman. And it kind of like Nietzsche was a brilliant madman, you know. And as we said before, hardly anyone knows that name now. Whereas Nietzsche, Marx, even Feuerbach, those are somewhat household words among the intelligentsia. And we have to ask ourselves a question, we could finish them off. Was he really influential or was it just that he had the thoughts he had ended up being part of the signs of the times and because he, I mean, his life and his writings and his philosophy kind of foreshadow the whole great reset, globalization. Yeah, and some of it sounds very Orwellian in the sense of it also seems to prefigure totalitarianism of the 20th century, you know, where the system, so politics and sociology united in a tyranny. And that seems to be what he's calling for. Obviously, he wanted to be the Fuhrer and that didn't happen. But basically other people became Fuhrers in his wake, so to speak. Well, the reason why his thought is a big part of the air that we breathe is because he wanted to turn all knowledge of everything into a concrete science, including the knowledge of man himself, the knowledge of the universe, everything he wanted to reduce down to a science. We wouldn't have the expression political science if it had not been for Comte. So the whole, in fact, social science, you know, every university has a social science department, as if these things are sciences in the same way that physics and chemistry. Yeah, you hit the nail on the head there, because as we see later on, he actually, he criticizes empirical science. So in other words, he criticizes the hard sciences because the hard sciences should subject themselves to sociology, to society, to an understanding of anthropology. So, you know, so he's actually becomes, he begins by being someone who uses the empirical sciences as a method of beating God. And then when he seeks to establish his own sociological religion, he then attacks the sciences because they are a threat, because they've got to question some of his presumptions and he's not into being questioned.

Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me. Amen. Amen. We now return to the Forum Book Club with Father Joseph Fessio, Vivian Doudreaux, and Joseph Pierce. He's not so much attacking the sciences for the inability to get the truth, but rather, he has what I think is a legitimate criticism. That is to say, the hard sciences progress by specializing more and more and losing often the larger picture. And so he's in need for something synthetic because science takes things apart and makes small and smaller areas where people, I mean, I live with a Jesuit in Germany. They call him Blitzlach because he was so slow. I mean, in his thinking and walking and everything. But he did his doctorate on the heat -sensitive organs in cockroach antennae, but a specific species or variety of cockroach. And in Germany, you have to do a second doctoral thesis called a meditation to be a professor. So he did his second thesis on the moisture -sensitive organs in cockroach antennae. Well, I mean, there's no question about it. This was the world expert on the antennae of these cockroaches. But where does that fit? Big picture thing. And so, you know, Kant would say, look, we have to unify this some way. And therefore, he sees sociology and he's the father of sociology. That's right. As the master of science.

Oh, from this mic it's Rich. We've been forgetting everything since we're so happy all the time and just loving doing our podcast. Yesterday was hump day. Oh yeah. But we forgot, we got so excited about what we were talking about. How do you forget about hump day? Well, I was probably humping anyway. I wonder if anybody's looked up the Humpty Hump song. I don't know. We should look at it. I'll show you. It's after hump day. Yeah. So let's roll. Well, it's going to be technically a little hump day. Yeah. You have this, you hit the string on the guitar, right? And the top of the head is the most sound, but there's a little wave. So we are still in that hump wave. Well, I guess we'll ride that wave out a little bit, but we don't want to start confusing everybody. Technically what do you say? You don't say hump day with full breath. You just take like 70%. Yeah. That's it. That's it. But listen, we're going to start confusing everybody by giving each day of the week a different name. I mean, we're in between hump day and this Thursday and sliding into tomorrow's small Saturday. Somebody created the names, right? Did we confuse anybody yet? No, but somebody created the names for calendar, didn't it? Who created it? I don't know. We need to find out. We will. I need to have serious talk with him. Because if we're going to be the guys that know everything, we should know that. Yeah. So I know one thing. And second thing is we need to make some adjustments. Yeah. Always. People need to make adjustments in their life. Yeah. Right. Hump day is good adjustment. Yeah. I like it. I like it too. Small Saturday. Yeah. I mean, people, I mean, we're growing into better humans, right? Right. That's the whole idea. Why we would have calendar that is a thousand years old. I don't know. Is that's a Gregorian calendar. I work. Yeah. I will start to make the Matt and Rich calendar. That's correct. Yeah. Do you think we can name all 365 days? Just the calendar is not the issue.

Fresh update on "thousands years" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Here with Blake Neff. He can name all the Roman emperors. He went to Dartmouth and he's single and he's taking, we're taking applications. I'm not going to give up, Blake. Freedom at charliekirk.com. But that's not what we're here to talk about. Blake, what are some of the lies, some of the misconceptions? Sometimes we find them, our guests will pepper them in and you say, no, that's not true. What are they? So a big fascination of Rome is like the fall of Rome. And everyone's like, is America falling the same way Rome did? Are we the late Republic? Are we the late empire? And one that does come up a lot is there will be this idea that the Roman empire fell because it was incredibly morally dissolute. I think it's part of even like the Nixon tapes where, you know, he goes off to Henry Kissinger or something and he's like, homosexuality destroyed them. And he says something like that. And what's fascinating to me is like, it's not that that drives them into the abyss. And that's why I sometimes like to say what's impressive with Rome isn't that they fall. Everything falls. What's impressive with Rome is how long they last. And when they are falling, they actually are, you know, we talk about how Christianity is a legacy of Rome and they actually convert to a very puritanical version of the Eastern Roman Empire. Like King Justinian. Emperor Justinian is a big one for that. But it is like his conversion, which is Constantine. Constantine converts. Okay. But was Justinian a Christian? He was Justinian. But that was like three or four. This is how long Rome is. Justinian is 250 years after Constantine. So, you know, in the 300s, there's a big civil war in the Roman Empire. Byzantium is created effectively? Byzantium is a city that is in Eastern Rome. And he, Constantine, builds a new city, Constantinople. On modern day Turkey, which is now Turkey. And is Istanbul today, still a huge city. But this is the nerve center of the Roman Empire for, you know, hundreds and hundreds of years afterwards. He kind of builds a new capital. He shifts the power center east. He builds it as a more consciously Christian city. So there's these big churches that he builds in it. Eventually, we get Hagia Sophia. That is now the, well, it's still Hagia Sophia. It is a mosque now. Don't lose wars. Don't lose wars. A mosque in name only. Well, now it is unfortunately a mosque actually. It's a practicing mosque. I think they changed it, right? It was a museum. And then sort of, they have a more kind of Islamic government in Turkey now. And so they've taken a lot of these museums. Under Erdogan, right? Erdogan, yeah. So there was Hagia Sophia and a few others. They've made the mosques again. And so he adopts Christianity. And kind of what's very compelling and I think noteworthy is Christianity takes a very long time to really entrench itself in among the masses. The word pagan actually comes from a word for like rustic farmer, because those were the people who remained pagan for so long in Rome. Whereas it's like, it's elites actually who adopt Christianity. Like the, you know, the imperial class, the people around the imperial family, you know, the people becoming bishops. And it's kind of, I read a book on it earlier this year called The Barbarian Conversion. I can't remember who wrote it off the top of my head, but that's the name of the book if anyone wants to look it up. And it's just these, you know, these elites in the Mediterranean world just think Christianity is the coolest thing ever. And they spend a thousand years pushing it everywhere they can. It's like very inspiring. Like, why does Ireland become Christian? Well, this guy in, you know, the falling Roman Empire, Patrick, he's kind of, you know, it's still Roman Britain at the time. He's a Christian, and he's like, I have to go spread Christianity to Ireland, where I was enslaved for a bit. And they're doing this all over the place. And so Rome, you know, it is unfortunate it's falling. But it is actually, they adopt Christianity as like this unifying measure as the empire is sort of fraying apart at the seams. And this becomes like their state ideology, even as Rome is crumbling apart. And that's actually what makes Rome kind of so enduring for us is, even after Rome is gone, this, you know, the faith that they adopted Christianity is still what binds these very different groups together. So, you know, Rome still matters today. Why does Rome still matter today? Because that was where, you know, the Pope was, and that was the unifying figure for all of Western Christianity for 1500 years. And so I think it's, it is too dismissive to say like, Rome fell because it was just ultra immoral. Like, you know, our entire moral code derives from Rome. Is it true that there was like an immigration problem, the Visigoth problem? That is a much better example. Is that fair? And how about the inflation that they that they deteriorated their currency? They did both those things. Those are good comparisons. Those are good comparisons. Yeah, the immigration. So they don't have immigration in the way we necessarily would. But they had loose, relaxed borders and foreigners pouring in. They were loose borders, like kind of the big moment, actually, if you want to really compare it to today, in I think 409 or 410, there's a civil war in Rome, and they pull the legions along the Rhine, like they're the troops who guard the border of the empire, they get pulled back to fight in the civil war. And these Germans just bust the border and they just run into France. And after that, it takes 50 years for it to really fall. But after that, that's when it's kind of all over for Rome. You know, it's they've let too many people loose in the interior. For 400 years, the Rhine River was like the border between civilization and barbarism. And they let all the barbarians over. And after that, it's like their army is all barbarians. They would just recruit these barbarians into the army. So the quality of the army goes away.

A highlight from IP#499 Gil Bailie The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor Discerning Hearts podcasts

"Discerninghearts .com presents Inside the Pages, insights from today's most compelling authors. I'm your host, Chris McGregor, and I'm delighted to be joined by Gil Bailey, who is the founder of the Cornerstone Forum and a member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars and the College of Fellows of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology. He is the author of God's Gamble, The Gravitational Power of Crucified Love. With Gil Bailey, we go inside the pages of The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self, Recovering the Christian Mystery of Personhood, published by Angelico Press. Gil, thank you so much for joining me. Thank you so much for having me. Pleasure to be here. It was just wonderful being able to dive into the pages of The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self. I found it to be so provocative and also very compelling. It's one of those kind of books that causes you to look at things through different, maybe clear lenses. Does that make sense? Well, I hope so. That flatters me, but that was my intent. It's a complex problem we face, but I tried to lay it out in a way that would be at least interesting to the reader. Now, I should bring out the full name, including the subtitle, The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self, Recovering the Christian Mystery of Personhood. Could you break that open for folks and help them understand why this is such an important subject right now? Well, first of all, before you get to the two, really two halves of the book, the first part, The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self, and the second part, Recovering the Christian Mystery of Personhood. We're in a civilizational crisis, and it's a political and a political crisis, a deep relative to moral and spiritual crisis. And my friend and mentor, Rene Girard, summed up in one of their books when he wrote, No one takes the trouble to reflect uncompromisingly on the enigma of a historical situation here that is without precedent the death of all cultures. Now, that's a sweeping statement, but it's like statements made by Benedict XVI on Balthasar and others. It recognizes the unique depth of the crisis that we've been entering into for a long time. I think one of the key features of this crisis is that we have failed to recognize and do justice to the very thing that sets us apart, sets our human beings apart from the whole created order, namely our religious longing. It's a longing which cannot be extinguished. It's the only question of orienting it towards its fulfillment or squandering it on idols. And in our time as faith has receded, many are eager to reflect before any ideological fraction that promises to relieve the boredom of not having a real collision. So that's the situation we face. And in the first part of the book, I try to draw it out in that chapters are, you know, I'm not an academic. I have a law degree and I never practiced law, but I began reading Western China many, many years ago. So the way to make this crisis intelligible and easy to recognize is I lay it out in chapters where I talk about people like Bob Dylan and Theresa Mitzvah and Flannery O 'Connor and Virginia Woolf and Descartes and Rousseau and Nietzsche and T .F. Eliot and Freud and all these. But in each of these chapters, I try to tease out one of the facets of spiritual crisis. And in the second half of the book, there's an edition on something. I mean, the way to summarize it is from Romano Lardini wrote in the 20th century, a book strikingly entitled The End of the Modern World. And in it, there's something that summarizes the second half of the book. Well, it actually connects the first half and the second half. And I'm going to quote it to you. The knowledge of what it means to be a person is inextricably bound up with the faith of Christianity. An affirmation and cultivation of the personal can endure for a time perhaps after faith has been extinguished. But gradually, they too will be lost. So the knowledge of what it means to be a person inextricably bound up with Christianity came into our vocabulary, our intellectual vocabulary. When Tertullian defined the Trinity as three persons and one God. So the word self and the word person are not only not synonymous, they are antonyms in a way. A person called in sin. The self is an antonymic creature who regards the will and the essential component of this being. And that whole triumph of will to coin a threat, not to coin a threat, but to pick up on Christ, so to say, with Nietzsche and Hitler. We think everything depends on our will. And I don't have a quote in front of me, but in the Casey decision, I think it was 1990, the Supreme Court said in the majority opinion that everyone has a right to use their own reality, to define reality. That's Nietzsche. That's that, of course. Right. But now it's become part of our it's what it's what a lot of people believe. And that's why we have friends, gender nonsense and who knows what else. But you can just make it up as you go along. If it's your reality is entirely up to you to determine by an act of will. And it's unbelievable what comes of that. And what we have to understand is that we are not the world does not conform to our will. We conform to our own. We are called in them. So anyway, the crisis we're living in is a crisis that became cultural with Nancy and Piddler and so on. But now it's become conventional in the sense that triumph of the will is everywhere. It's at one time, of course, and it's degradation of our real person to be a person is to be called in sin. And I think it's imperative we understand the predicament that we're in. And I think that's really important. I think for most in the culture today, for several generations, at the very least, if not many more in that we've never had the types of conversations in our formation, our educational venues about this particular subject. I mean, you spoke of a great friendship you had with Rene Girard, an important figure, philosopher, teacher, Stanford, and some would say a theologian. I know that Bishop Baron referred to him as one day. He may be considered, as he said, a father of modern theology because of what he described as that mimic theory that we as individuals and not necessarily as persons, because there's that distinction between the individual and what it is to be a person. And you knew him very well. That whole understanding of, as some would say, the mimic theory. What are your thoughts about that? Well, it was a great privilege to know him and he dispensed with him for decades. And I think his work will take a while, like all great thinkers. It takes a while to sort itself out. The first take on Girard is that it's all about violence and imitation. And of course, in some way it is. And my first book was all about that. But there's so much more to it. And one of the things I tried in this book is to expand the understanding of Girard's his favorite theologians are the same as mine. It was John Culver II, Benedict, Van Valken, even though Van Valken had some complaints about Rene's early work. And that's before the real theological implications came out in its later book. But he had great affection for John Culver II and especially for Cardinal Ratzinger, Benedict XVI, but also do it again, and so on. So I try to integrate Rene's work with these theologians. And I think it helped fill out a deep Catholic understanding of our crisis. And so I think we're in a difficult situation. But we have been given intellectual and spiritual giant whose work now we can make available to ourselves that would reckon with the predicament we're in. Well, I think that's how Rene Girard and how someone even like a G .K. Chesterton, for example, they were able to challenge them in their early lives when they looked at literature, when they looked at art and those popular cultural icons, those types of works that had deeper meanings to them. And they were able to see certain truths and certain movements and things. And then they came out and then they expressed it, why it touches the human heart in certain ways, either for good or for ill. And they were able to distinguish that. And I think that's the importance of looking at those figures who have a gift for that. And you do that, like you said, whether it's Bob Dylan or it's Flannery O 'Connor or even someone who captures the heart and imagination of the world like a tres. What is it that they're trying to communicate to us in? What is the potential, the beauty, the good, the true, but also the warning that are contained in their expressions of their works? And I think that's what you're trying to do in the book, in each of the many, many chapters that you have on those different type of whether it's literature or it's prose or, again, even in music. And so I think that is a wonderful way to go about it, don't you? You know, I'm so happy you mentioned it because it reminds me of something that I think your listeners might be interested in. It's a way of approaching the situation we're in. von Balfour Jarre, in one of his writings, says to human history after the Christian revelation, consist of a mutual intensification of the yes and no to Christ. Now pause and think about that. History after Christ consists of the mutual intensification of the yes and no to Christ. If that seems to require too much theological sophistication. Bob Dylan said something exactly like that in this 1979 song, God Accured Somebody, in which he said, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but you're going to have to bury somebody. So both the theologian and the popular poet listed only two choices. The theologian said it's the yes or no to Christ, and the poet musician said we're going to end up serving either the devil or the Lord. Now where Testament comes in is the Testament said once that if everyone, I'm going to paraphrase him because I think it's a little punchier to say this, like if everyone lived a thousand years they would all die Catholic, which is the paraphrase of what he once said. And the reason is, I would say, he didn't spell it out, I'm going to, if we had a thousand years of experience to look back on, we would realize that all the little choices were made along the way were in some small way the yes or the no to Christ, or the choice between the devil and the Lord. And then we would understand, if we had a thousand years of experience, that the drama of history is the mutual intensification of yes and no to Christ. And the implication that for our time and thought is that as the world becomes more emphatic in its projection of Christianity, we have to become more compelling in our sense of Christ in its church. over spiritual 3000 formation programs and prayers, all available to you with no hidden fees or subscriptions.

We're talking with Gail Bailey, the author of The Apocalypse of the Sovereign Self, recovering the Christian mystery of personhood. To understand the importance of what it is to be a person, the Church Fathers didn't use until it was really brought into the context of the Trinity, the three persons, as you pointed out. But what is the Trinity? It's relational. It's a relationship. There's an identity, but it's also in relation. So when Dylan talks about whether you are to serve, you got to serve somebody, it's either going to be the devil or it's going to be Christ. And that entails when you serve, it's going to be relational. You can't get out of it. And to say that I have this individual autonomy all to myself to do and think the way I want to, it's to negate the relationship. And you can't get around that. But yet that's what the culture is implying, isn't it? It is. And one of the things that's lost in that emphasis on self and self -will is the idea and this is involved with our great contribution, the idea of the field drama that we are in, we live dramatically, we're part of a drama that's unfolding and our task is to live and our task is to fulfill the obligation that are incumbent upon us as members of the cast. We have to live in such a way that we ourselves and our loved ones and spreading out for those we know or maybe those of you catch a glimpse of us coming out of the church on Wednesday morning and wonder what the heck are people doing in church on Wednesday morning. Whatever it is, we have an obligation to live in the drama on behalf of Christ in this church in whatever way we can. Whatever our role in life, our vocation in life, our situation, there's always an opportunity to be an icon of Christ and to contribute to the historical field drama that way. And for years I've quoted the 13th century Islamic poet Rumi who said, and I'm gonna quote, he said, be like one who when he walks into the room, luck shifts to the one who needs you. And there's a Christian analog to that which is of course St. Peter who said always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks here to give a reason for the hope you have. So we have to be beacons of a hope that may be totally puzzling to others but if we live in such a way that it's compelling, they will at some point want to find out how we tend to have that hope and a conversation can be had that could be very fruitful. So we live dramatically, not in some self -conscious way or in a physical way, but our lives should be evangelical in the sense that we should be willing and eager to allow anyone who cares to know why it is we had hope even when the situation is, it's never hopeless, but is dire as there is today and may very well be more so in the future.

Fresh update on "thousands years" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Say hi, Blake. Hello. And Blake, we have we have a lot of questions here, but I thought it was just a perfect question to have you join. When a young lady says, how often do you think about the Roman Empire? Now, so, Blake, fill our audience in on this Internet phenomenon. OK, so we talked about this on Thought Crime, which if you guys don't watch Thought Crime on Rumble, definitely check it out every Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern. And download the podcast. We talked about this last week. This went viral on Twitter X, I guess we call it now. I can't get over that. Instagram, all the other places where some woman basically discovered, she's like, you know, I asked my husband, like, how often he thinks about the Roman Empire? And he replied like every week or so. You know, this blew her mind. You know, she probably hasn't thought about the Roman Empire ever. And so she's like, ladies, is this true? Like, are men thinking about this all of the time? And the answer is yes. We are all thinking about it all the time. Like multiple times a day all the time. Yeah, yeah. I was I could maybe miss a day here or there. And then they made this a topic. Now it's just weird. I can't escape the Roman Empire. Well, so first, you know more about Roman Empire than like the Roman Empire than like professional historians, which I think we should riffle. Can you name all the emperors in order? All of them in order. I could probably get pretty far. So like Augustus, Octavian. Octavian is Augustus. So then Tiberius. Augustus, Tiberius. And then I lose it. Then like Caligula. Caligula is next. Oh, is that right? Okay, all right. Tiberius, Caligula. And then Nero is somewhere in the next three or four, right? Claudius, Nero. Oh, so I wasn't too far off. Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian, Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus, Pius, Marcus Aurelius, also with the last of the good emperors, Commodus. Commodus. See, I got that one. And then he gets choked out by a wrestler in the bath. Not making that up. And so then it is- Otherwise known as Joaquin Phoenix, by the way, for those of you keeping score at home. And then we get Pertinax. That's an obscure one. Pertinax. At this point, it was after Pax Romana. Yeah, this is where it's starting to break down. And so then we have Pertinax. Then we have Didius Julianus. Just so you guys know, he's not reading a screen. No, no, no. I'll turn the computer down there. Didius Julianus. Then Septimius Severus. And then Geda Caracalla, our brothers. Caracalla kills his brother, Geda. I don't know if I'm pronouncing that right. I don't actually read Latin. I just have to read translations like a normie. Geda Caracalla. And then, OK, now it starts to get tough. And then I think it's Elagabalus. No, we have Macrinus. Then Elagabalus. Then Severus Alexander. He gets murdered by his soldiers. And then things get really kooky. And if you read the list, it's like it's all inconsistent. We have guys with weird names like Pupianus. That's a dumb name. And then like Gordian 1, 2, and 3. Philip the Arab. I can't. Now this is where the order breaks down for a while. It gets really. So the females are stunned that we think about the Roman Empire so much. Why do men think so much about it? By the way, incredibly impressive, Blake. And it's very impressive. Maybe people disagree. They're like, this is a sad person. No, I think it's amazing. I can name like five. It's more than most Americans. But I mean, why do men think so much about the Roman Empire? Well, so it's a lot of things. Like men, I mean, we love it. Like it is like the apex of everything that men aspire to build. It was an institution that was the bedrock of civilization for 1,000 years. It's what we still aspire to today, what still gives shape to our society today. Like what is the most common religion in Western civilization? It's Christianity. Who adopted Christianity? The Roman Empire. What formed as our government? I mean, a republic. That's from Res Publica for 400 years, right? Res Publica. That is a Latin Roman term. And it's, you know, what architectural style are we imitating? We're imitating Greco-Roman architecture. If you go to DC, it's basically Little Rome. Yeah, like what drove the Enlightenment? A huge proportion of it is essentially aspiring to what these ancient Romans and ancient Greeks wrote about and did. The Renaissance was a rediscovery. The Renaissance, the rebirth, was the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman learning. And then the Enlightenment was sort of a continuation of that. All of these guys would say, you know, like James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, all of these guys would read these ancient Roman political thinkers. Cicero, for example. One-year Roman council had a huge impact on the founders. Exactly, exactly. And so it's very much the model they would look towards both for good and bad things. It is the cultural template that we operate off of. You know, you could almost say like we're in Judeo-Christian Roman civilization, if you wanted to. Yeah, and it's forgetting the male-female part of it, because we've been through that macro, micro. Men are more focused on history and philosophy. Women more focused on relationships and feelings, poetry, stuff like that. And that's not a sexist thing, it's just a fact. But so what I find interesting, though, is that when people say Rome is the goal, what does that mean? By people, you mean when Jack tells us that Rome is the goal. Oh, so it is obviously men do love the idea of building... A little bit like that, you know, we love to build things that endure. And, you know, we love to imagine, like, what would the United States, you know, we feel like the United States is in decline. But and the Roman Empire declined and fell, but it lasted a very long time. That's the amazing thing. Four hundred and seventy-seven years, right? It had a run of 500, 600 years where it was the most powerful, important thing. People, by the end of it, you know, they couldn't imagine a world without Rome. Like, it had never existed. No one could imagine a history of what it was like before Rome was a thing. That's how much it shaped everything. And for thousands of years afterwards, that's what they wanted. You know, we'd have these pale imitations. In the Middle Ages, they had the Holy Roman Empire, which, you know, as Voltaire wrote, was like, not holy, not Roman, not an empire. It actually was all three of those things. But that's another matter. And, you know, because they were just, to a Middle Ages person, they were like, this is Rome restored. We are the Roman Emperor. And they're like bad, pale understanding of it. And, you know, even when they're found in the United States, a lot of them would view this as like, oh, this is our, you know, our restoration of the ancient, like, Republican principles of Rome. Like, that's always the goal, is to create a state and society that can be as, you know, robust and enduring as what happened 2,000 years ago. And it's all really cool. Like, they fight all these wars, and there's all these inspirational, like, moral fables that you get from Rome, which we mostly get because all of their history gets burned up, and we have like one book left, and it's like Roman propaganda. And meditation. Exactly. And some stuff like that. But like, you know, they fight this war against Hannibal. And there's a battle where the Romans lose the Battle of Cannae, where 60,000 Romans die in one day, which would be like, imagine if we fought a war with, you know, Britain or Germany, and, you know, 2 million US troops get killed in one day with the president and a third of Congress in like North Carolina, and he's like marching on Washington. And like, that is what happens to Rome. And like, they don't make peace. And according to the histories, they don't even think about making peace. Like, it doesn't even enter their mind. And they just, they just tank, you know, right in the face. Like, they're a boxer who does nothing, get punched, get punched in the face, and they keep going. And that just is the sort of thing that if you're a man, you're like, wow, those guys are awesome. Not to mention the architectural achievements. Aqueducts, roads, the dome, right? The arch and the dome also invented it. Everyone wants to imitate this. So there is a... It is the standard still of architecture worldwide. The famous thing is the Duomo in Florence, Brunelleschi's dome. It is like, it was the first dome they made in 1500 years that was bigger than the dome of the Pantheon. And like, when the Ottoman, when the Muslims take over Istanbul, like their big thing is we want to be able to build a dome that is as large as, you know, the one in Aja Sofia, which had been built a thousand years before them. And all of these achievements, it's like, how many buildings do you know from a thousand years ago? Not really as many as we have from Rome 2000 years ago. I want to stay on this because I think it's super interesting. There are some misconceptions about the fall of Rome that you correct sometimes. Yeah, there's a few of them. And I also want to talk about how did they get so great, so excellent? Such an outlier, because I think that's interesting. Was it the form of government? Some people say it was the nutrition. Have you ever heard that theory that they were able to have such reliable agrarian base in a time when food was largely scarce? I don't know if that's true or not. Blake Neff is with us as we do our Ask Me Anything episode. How often do you think about the Roman Empire? I think about it. I have a bust of Marcus Aurelius in my office.

A highlight from The Necessity of God's Power (Part 2)

"How do you respond when unbelievers aren't enthusiastic about your witness for the gospel of Jesus Christ? How should we handle such opposition? Can a common Christian be expected to explain the gospel to someone who is more knowledgeable in worldly things? Dr. John Whitcomb has been teaching the Bible and apologetics for many decades, and he utilizes that experience to answer those questions today on Encounter God's Truth. I'm your host, Wayne Shepard, and we're in the middle of a sermon entitled The Necessity of God's Power as we continue a series on biblical apologetics. It was recorded live at Appalachian Bible College in Mount Hope, West Virginia, and Whitcomb Ministries thanks them for allowing us to bring you these messages. Today's lesson is vitally important in helping us learn how to share our faith with those who disagree and resist the message of God's grace. It goes into detail regarding the power source that influences unbelievers, namely Satan and his demons, and how they relate to history and prophecy. Please stay with us now and track with us in your own Bible if you can as Dr. Whitcomb deals with these significant issues. We open with a short review from last time looking at Isaiah chapter 64. And we all fade as a leaf and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away and there is none that calleth upon thy name that stirs up himself to take hold of thee for thou has hid thy face from us and has consumed us because of our iniquities. Now this is Isaiah, probably the greatest Old Testament writing prophet, you see, whose sin nature was judicially purged away in that confrontation with God in chapter 6, one of the most amazing encounters with the living God ever recorded. And it's Isaiah who says, we, our iniquities, not somebody else's. You all know Jeremiah 17 9, the heart of man is what? Deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Like God said of the human race before the flood, and by the way, God makes it clear, he didn't wipe out the human race except for one family for no real legitimate reason. God looked down upon the human race and saw that the iniquity of man was great and that every thought of the intent of his heart was only evil continually. I'll give you my opinion on that. No human being, even with a fallen, sinful, depraved nature, can be that bad, that consistently without demonic help. I think the whole pre -flood world was not only depraved but demonized. That every thought of the intent of their heart was always evil. Always. Hmm. And so God, of course, I mean, my problem with the Genesis flood is not that God wiped out the human race, but that he waited hundreds of years for people to repent through the preaching of Noah because God is long suffering, not what? Willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. And Noah preached and proclaimed and warned and appealed, pled with people, come into the ark, there's a flood coming. And people laughed and laughed. And Jesus said, in those days, men were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage, all of which is fine, except that's all they live for. Just feeding and multiplying and animals can do that too. And God did not do what? He didn't create human beings in his image and likeness do nothing more than animals do. They had no thought for him, no response to his word, no interest whatever. And therefore, it said they understood not until Noah entered the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all. You say, isn't that a little bit extreme? Did you know that many Christians are offended by the Genesis flood account? Maybe one billion people. You mean only one family was saved. Isn't that an overkill? You know what's really amazing? I mean, I'm trying to be biblical. Would you pray for me? The amazing thing that anybody was saved. You say, well, Noah and his family were perfect. Oh, you know better. There were eight sin natures in the ark, which after the flood what proliferated and became what total blasphemers in the Tower of Babel project and later, of course, crucified Jesus and someday the Antichrist will be also a descendant of that family. And we say, Lord, help me to see things from your perspective. The fact that you even put up with the human race at all is an astounding thing in scripture in the light of what we are. And by the way, that's why God will never send another flood because Genesis 8 21 says that God said, never again will I destroy the earth as I have done because man is what? Is wicked from his youth up. You say, well, that sounds like a good reason to have a global flood every 100 years. No, a thousand floods, a million, would never modify our sin nature. And so God said that was once and enough to demonstrate who's in the next flood till the fire comes at the end of the world. The fire flood. Well, friends, here we are. This is our problem. And I say, Lord, we have a sin problem. Even the natural man, however nice, receives not the things of the Spirit of God. They're foolishness him neither can you know them. They're spiritually discerned or praised. Romans 8 7, even while we were sinners or enemies, Christ died for us. Psalm 14, the fool says in his heart, what? There's no God. Romans 5 8 and so forth. I mean, these passages, friends, totally destroy any little thought we may have had that we can be persuasive in changing people's minds about God and his word. Okay. Oh, but we have another problem. Not only sin, but who? Satan. Oh my. Whenever you talk to an unsaved person, the Bible tells you this for you're talking to at least two persons, one of whom's invisible and maybe more. And that invisible one is Satan, who's the God of this world. And, you know, the Bible makes it so clear that Satan has, you know, enormous power. Turn to Ephesians six. Would you please listen to this? We learned in Ephesians chapter two that people walk according to the prince of the power of the air, who is the spirit that now worketh and the children of disobedience. Look at Ephesians six, verse 11. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. By the way, he has all kinds of names. Satan, devil, the prince, the God of this world, the prince of the power of the air. Listen to this. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, against mere human beings. Oh, you see, that's rationalistic apologetics. I have better arguments than you have about God and the Bible. I, when you lose, you're now converted. I have heard of, I have attended a couple creation evolution debates. And my friend Henry Morris and now the recently retired Duane Gish, I mean, these men are fantastic debaters. And they have won every debate. There have been hundreds of them in great major universities around the world, hundreds of them. I feel sorry for an evolutionist who is going to debate Henry Morris or Duane Gish or these other men in the creation science movement who have memorized hundreds and hundreds of arguments. They know better than the evolutionist does what his argument is going to be and how to answer them. They've never lost a man outwitted them. He did, he talked and talked and talked and never let them have a chance to answer. So he won. See, and most of them know they're going to be defeated and end up doing what? Using ad hominem arguments insulting the creationist, you see, because they can't answer his arguments, his evidences. They're overwhelming. They're undeniable. But let me ask a question. How many of the evolutionists who are defeated say, look, that's it. I unconditionally surrender now to Jesus. Where's the nearest church? No. In fact, it's almost like they're hardened even more in their hatred against the God of the Bible, the God of creation. That's very mysterious. Okay. I'm not saying that a creation argument can't be used of God, as we shall see, God willing tonight, to help people at least pay attention to some of the things you might have to say. And the best creation science debate scenario, in my opinion, is when you walk out the door of the auditorium after the debate's over with and somebody gives you a gospel of John or a Bible tract or an invitation to a Bible study and you say, well, let me hear more. And you might use some of that wisely, you see, as a serpent, harmlessly like a dove, to get people within the sound of the what? Of the gospel. But the debate won't convert people. You sort of knew that, didn't you? It's hard for me to realize it, but dear friends, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, against mere debaters, against mere evolutionists, against mere atheists, but against what? Principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand an evil day, and having done all to stand, stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the what? The fiery darts of the wicked or the evil one. 2 Corinthians 4 -3, if our gospel behead, if people can't see it, appreciate it, love the Savior you're telling about, is because what? The God of this world has blinded them. They may not see the Christ who's the light of the world. They can't see. I mean, Jesus talked, you know, in Matthew 13 about going forth sowing the seed. And you say, well, now wait a minute here. There's something unfair about this statement Jesus made because he said after the seed is sown, Satan comes and takes the seed away. My, it falls on hardened soil, irresponsible, irresponsive soil, and he takes it away. He blinds people. You say, well, that's not fair. That's a serious problem in the Bible. But men are responsible. It's like Pharaoh. Did God harden his heart? Did he harden his own heart? You see, there's a mysterious interaction. If you don't want the truth, you'll be further blinded. If you resist the word of God, Satan comes in and makes it even harder for you, and even harder, and even harder. And in rare cases in the lifetime of Jesus, and I think in the coming tribulation, people will be so hardened, they'll actually say of antichrist miracles, they are from God, and they will take his mark on forehand and right hand, and they're doomed before they die. They've committed the unpardonable sin. Some could do that when Jesus was here. When they saw his miracles, they said what? They're from Satan. They blaspheme the Holy Spirit, who confirmed the identity of their Messiah with sign miracles. This is awesome, friends. Now, I think the only unpardonable sin in the church age is you just keep rejecting the gospel. Until, and it's never too late, until when? Until you're dead. Then it's over. You're done forever. God says don't underestimate your enemy. Don't think you can manipulate him. You handle him. Outsmart him. No, no. Why, the greatest angel in the righteous angelic universe is Michael. He's the archangel. That means, number one, he's tops of righteous angels. And he was appointed by God on one occasion to protect the body of Moses in a distant remote region of the Dead Sea. Nobody ever saw him die. God buried him. And Satan came along to desecrate that body. Now, can you imagine the scenario here, friends? This is the night of the book of Jude, chapter 9, verse 9. Let me imagine the interchange, okay? Satan comes and says to Michael, step aside. I'm taking that body. I hated Moses for 40 years, and I'm going to destroy and desecrate the body. In the Old Testament times and in many parts of the world today, the way you're buried tells a lot about who you are. Did you know that? The body is precious to God. I mean, it's not essential. He can raise you from the dead without your body being visible. That's another issue. But Michael said, in effect, no, you can't. I mean, I was appointed by God just because he knew you would show up. You can't touch this body. And Satan says, well, you don't know who I am, do you? Did you know Satan is higher than Michael? Satan is the greatest creature in the universe. Read about him in Ezekiel 28. Oh, friends, Michael finally gave up arguing with a superior being. And he used presuppositional apologetics. Listen to this one. The Lord rebuke you, and that ended it. In other words, I can't handle you, but I know somebody who can. And I'm going to turn you over to my God. Goodbye. That's you. That is I. Lord, I can't handle this person. I need your divine help. I'm facing something vastly superior to any of my intellectual capacities to manipulate people. Help me to depend on you. You know what that is? That's an apologetic with power and passion. If you're going to have any effect on people, if you're going to be dynamic, irresistible, if you're going to win people to Jesus Christ forever and ever, you better be locked into a power system that is greater than yourself. Thank you, Lord. Now, friends, let's just take a little interlude here and look at the history of Satan, shall we? Satan's stages of downfall. You know, he had a great start. He was the anointing cherub that covered the presence of God. He was perfect in beauty. But then he had an evil thought, just one thought. I want to be like the Most High. And instantly, out he went. It didn't drag on with courts of appeal for months and years, trust me. And Jesus saw it happen. He said, I beheld Satan like lightning fall from heaven. It was instantaneous. Now, that's perfect justice. Human governments can't handle that. Watch how Jesus does it. Out he went, folks. That was his moral and spiritual fall, and perhaps 200 million demons fell with him. Jesus calls fallen angels demons. And then what happened? He experienced a second fall at the Genesis flood. Now, this is not well known, and this is based on some inferences. Okay. We read in 2 Peter and Jude that the angels that kept not their first estate, but went after strange flesh, those specially wicked ones, are now confined in chains and pits of darkness until the judgment of the great day. Who were they? Those are the ones at the time of the flood who, according to Genesis 6, you remember, took women and the sons of God, are who angels went after women, and God confined them at the Genesis flood forever to the place of judgment. I mean, they have no further access to human beings. And when Jesus the Lord showed up 2 ,000 years ago, do you know what the other demons said to him who had not been cast down into the Tartarus pit? They said, we know who you are, you son of the abbess, the pit. They still have access, I mean, millions of demons, but others are gone. They're gone. Now, friends, here was the final blow. Jesus said, now is the prince of this world cast out, and here's Genesis 3 15, and he will crush the serpent's head. And that was Calvary's cross. Maybe Satan was suspicious with suspicion that something bad would happen to himself, and he told Peter to tell Jesus what, don't go to Jerusalem and die. And Jesus said to Peter, get thee behind me, Satan. You say, well, if he was crushed at Calvary, then how come he's a roaring lion roaming around the world seeking whom he may devour? This is a deep mystery. I mean, did you know the Bible's full of difficult topics? He was judicially destroyed, but not actually. He is doomed legally, see, but God gave him an extension of activity during the church age to test the saints. See, that's very hard. I mean, just like Job chapter one, where Satan came to God and said, and God said, have you seen my servant Job? And Satan, I mean, this is so awful, I hate to quote it. And Satan said to God, oh, look, you've hedged him about, look at all the things you've done for him. You just take away those things and he'll curse you to your face. Ouch. You know what I would do if I were writing the book of Job? I'd say, God would say to him, look, I don't like you anymore. Kindly vanish forever. Now, why is Satan still here? Okay, the mystery of iniquity. Now, folks, Michael himself will have revenge on Satan someday in the middle of the seventh week of Daniel. He and his armies of righteous angels will be allowed by God to defeat Satan and his armies and cast them out of the third heaven where he has access. See, right now, Revelation 12 says Satan has access to the third heaven to do what? To accuse the brethren night and day. And he's right there now accusing you and me of all kinds of things for which we deserve an eternal hell. And the only answer Jesus can give him or needs to give him is what? Well, you're right, sir, he is really not a perfect person. And we only take perfect persons up here. But I died for him and I took his sin on myself and transferred my righteous to him goodbye. Now, you know, that's Zechariah chapter three, Joshua the high priest was filthy and Satan was there accusing him. And God said to him, the Lord rebuke you, Satan. Out of here. And clothed him, you see, in fresh clean garments representing what you and I wear in the sight of a holy God by virtue of his merits through his blood. Well, that's not the end for Satan. He's cast down knowing his time is short and he has three and a half more years on this planet to empower the antichrist, his human masterpiece, number two and who's the person in the Trinity of evil? And who's the second person? The antichrist, the beast. And the third person is who? The false prophet who performs miracles and transforms the statue of the antichrist into a living being that will kill people who won't bow before it. Talk about satanic miracles like the ones you know that Pharaoh's henchmen did in the court of Egypt to oppose Moses and Aaron. And what were their names? Janus and Jambres. Hmm. Wow. Satan will have enormous power for the final three and a half years. That's why it is called the great tribulation, the great and dreadful day of the Lord, those three and a half final years. And Satan will almost take over the world. Jesus said, unless those days are shortened, no flesh will survive. Say, thank you, Lord. I am a part of your bride and your body and you're not going to allow me to suffer the wrath of man or the wrath of Satan or the wrath of God in that awful period of time. Thank you for the pre -tribulation rapture. I heard three saying amen. Think of it, friends. We're going to be gone before this happens. Then comes what? The second coming of Christ, the Armageddon encounter and Satan and all his demons and the antichrist and the false prophet are cast down into the pit, the obeses. And there they will remain for a thousand years. But the amazing, amazing thing is that after a thousand years, Satan is going to be released again for a little time to test the nations who have been basking under the blessing of a perfect government, perfect economy, perfect environment for a thousand years. But many children are born, billions of people are born into the kingdom who've never really made a personal choice. And just like God had to do for Adam and Eve, he'll say, I'm going to give you a very, very credible choice alternative to me. And back comes Satan and enormous masses of people follow him like sand of the sea from multitude. And finally what? Fire comes from heaven and devours them all and consumes planet earth and the moon, the other eight planets, their moons, the sun, all the other stars and galaxies and the heavens and earth flee away from him who sits upon the throne. There'll be no place found for them. And Satan and the demons and those who never believed Jesus are consigned forever and ever to the lake of fire. And those who love Jesus and made a choice for him. Yes, even in the presence of satanic alternatives will be in God's heaven forever and ever. And I say, Lord, I just need help here. These are enormous things that are going on that I can't even see with my unaided eye. But through your precious word, these things come to light and you give me understanding that I need to be effective for you and patient and gracious and loving and prayerful, knowing that apart from you, I can do a thing. Help me, I pray in Jesus name. Amen. Do you have questions about what you're hearing in this series of biblical apologetics?

A highlight from How to Burn Fat and Reverse Insulin Resistance with Dr. Jason Fung

"Like people are always they tend to overthink things, right? Things are not that complicated. Body fat and blood glucose are two ways that the body uses to store calories. OK, so if you have too much glucose, which is diabetes, or you have too much body fat, which is obesity, then you have too much stored food on your body. So if you don't eat, your body will use the calories that are stored as body fat or as blood glucose. That's it. That's all that happens during a fast. So why are people like fearing the fast? Like, why is it so bad to fast? When you fast, your body will use body fat. That's what it's there for. You're using it for what it's there for. So why not do it right? Don't overthink these things. After a fast, will you be more hungry? Yes, you might be, in which case you have to control the you know, you do have to control what you're eating. But on the other hand, you just have to understand that there's nothing intrinsically wrong with not eating. That's the reason that your body has has these sources of energy. We wouldn't have survived if we didn't have a way to store energy. We'd die in our sleep every single night, but we don't. So therefore, let's just use it for what it's there for. Yeah. And our ancestors, you know, go back a thousand years ago. I mean, we didn't have refrigerators, pantries, things like that. So it was very common they go through feast and famine cycles when food was available, eat as much as they could, and it was very satiating foods like you talked about, high in fiber, fat, healthy fats, proteins, things like that. So they were satiated and they couldn't really store much. And so there were times where they didn't have a good hunt or they didn't have a good harvest. And therefore they were in a season of fasting and their body had to adapt to it. And sometimes they would go days without food. And instead of getting weak and like just laying there because they didn't have any energy, oftentimes they got stronger. They got their senses were heightened because all of the hormonal mechanisms that took place, elevated growth hormone or epinephrine, different things like that, which gave them a greater ability to go out and hunt and be more successful and a higher probability of being successful because their senses were heightened. So it's interesting what happens. It's interesting. And it's all physiology. Like people like this is all sort of basic human physiology that we've understood. It's like first year medical school stuff, right? When you don't eat, insulin is going to fall, right? So your body is going to start liberating some of the energy that's stored. So glucose is going to go into the system. It's going to use body fat. That's fine. But other hormones go up. Growth hormone goes up, which preserves lean mass. Norepinephrine goes up, which is going to increase your concentration abilities. It's going to increase your senses and give you more energy, which is why we have all these studies, for example. Like they'll measure, say, metabolic rate. And after four days of fasting, what they measure is that the metabolic rate, the number of calories the body is burning is actually up by 10 percent. And people have known this forever. I mean, you think about the hungry wolf, the wolf who hasn't eaten for a while. Is it like just falling down tired? No, it's focused and energetic. That's what you want to be. You want to be the hungry wolf. You don't want to be that lion that just ate, you know, sleepy, you know, sort of like that food coma, you know, post Thanksgiving, sort of like, oh, I just need to lie down, sort of feeling like that's not energy. That's because you ate and you're you know, you need to digest.

Have You Ever Had a Powerful or Disturbing Dream?

"Ever had a powerful but maybe disturbing dream? It's important to consider our own dreams as we look at dreams from the Bible. Not because they'll relate so much or they'll have like similar imagery, but because of the way that they make us feel. Real dreams make us feel a certain way. And through that feeling, we know that we can relate to what Daniel was feeling as he had some of these dreams. I think there in the Passion Translations, it talks about how this one dream covered over a thousand years and then some because it kind of covered all of it. But just through the course of the kingdoms that are following and being brought up and the horns replacing horns, those are authorities and different authorities being replaced by other authorities. A lot of this is expected to have happened during Jesus' time. You know, over 500 years later. And then to keep going. So it's amazing how much God was revealing to Daniel to this one little dream. Sometimes our dreams can be filled with things that are meaningful. But much like Daniel, it's not like he was aware of everything that would actually happen. He just recognized the importance. He felt the importance of the dream. I don't know about you, but some dreams that I've had, I've had to get rid of them. They just didn't feel right. But they were very, very interesting. They just didn't feel right. And I got that advice from a friend of mine. He just said, you know, how did it make you feel? And I thought for a moment, I said, you know, I felt really, really important. But it also felt really, really terrible. And without being sensitive, he asked me, could you flush it? Do you feel like you could just get rid of it? He was kind of being funny. And I hadn't considered it, you know, because it did feel important. But as soon as I did, I just realized that was the end of the matter. That was the end of it. I'm done with this. It's interesting to me that Daniel has that moment there at the very end. I'll read it to you. And it says, that is all that I saw in my dream. I, Daniel, was so greatly terrified by my thoughts that my face turned pale. But I hid the vision in my heart. And other translations say that was the end of the matter. That was it. He was done with

"You, Maybe for a thousand years, nothing gets better when That's. Here! He -ey, he -ey He -ey, he -ey See I am a professional clown. I get paid to be a clown. There's a difference. it comes. I we think just keep saying this Travis, right? They get pants every single time and they they just keep doing it. Raskin and Goldman and all of these fantastic. Stacey Plaskett this morning is in The the process of disemboweling Jim Jordan again. And RFK Jr. It really is like the Harlem Globetrotters. just, they are the Washington generals. They just keep coming back. Yeah. It's I mean, if someone has to remind Jim Jordan to actually swear in a witness, you know, he's doing an upstanding job. He's doing a fine job. I mean, I gotta give me some more representative Garcia yesterday. This is of course in stark contrast to the Trump crime family. The majority conveniently glazes foreign dealings. The Trump family, who of course were actually appointed to White House senior jobs from Ivanka's Chinese trademarks to Jared's Qatari real estate bailout and 2 billion in Saudi private equity money. where's So that investigation? They were actually in the White House. And I think Chris Christie, one of the Republicans running for president, said it best, of course, in the former governor. This is his quote, not mine. The grift from the family is breathtaking. It's breathtaking. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Kushner walk out of the White House and months later get 2 billion from the Saudis. Continue. You think it's because it's some kind of investigative genius or investing genius? Or is it because he was sitting next to the president of the United States for four years and doing favors for the Saudis? Now, these are quotes from a man who's known Trump and the Custer's for years. These people are in the White House every day, formally making policy unlike Hunter Biden. Yeah, thank you. So I mean, that was the other is thing they were able to showcase the unbelievable corruption of the Trump family, because we just We can say it till we're blue in the face, but the Republicans are the one that allowed all of this to be televised to remind for everybody of the corruption of the Trump crime family. We knew that they were going to walk right into this if they were were going to try and bring up anything. It now opens the door for people like that to be like, now let's look at let's look at the kids, the let's look at you know, Kushner, let's look at Ivanka, if you really want to talk about this, you started this, we're going to finish it. They do it every every time they hand on their pants every time total rake factory. They just walk right into a bunch of rakes every single time. Yeah. And Jasmine Crockett, fantastic. She gives me life. Here she is yesterday. I want to talk about what we should be prosecuting. We should be looking at the fact that in 2017, Trump's first year in office, he also made $6 .5 million from China, his tax returns show the source of the China payments is not clear from the returns. The payments were a surprise since Trump is an outspoken critic of the $5 .8 million that Hunter Biden made. The difference is Trump was our when president he made this money from China. Whereas I'm sure you would agree with me, Hunter Biden has been a private citizen We've got a lot of other stuff. fact, In it's clear that Trump never paid more than $750 in taxes for I want to say a total of like two years of his taxes, which is absolutely insane, but we also know that it showed that Trump claimed large cash donations to charities, but the report said the IRS did not verify them. The report also said that while Trump's tax filings were large and complicated, the IRS does not appear to have signed experts to work on them. That is shameful.

"Capital. But Christians have this reputation of there's instead of staying away, you know, chemistry class, a teacher has a beaker with a statue in the U.S. capital of Hawaii. And they're just dying there. And so this priest named Father Damien goes there and ministers to him for decades. And he eventually dies. But he he he ran to the need and it was so ministered to the people of Hawaii that they chose to put his statue in Honolulu and in the U.S. capital. But Christians had this reputation of there's instead of staying away, I might catch something from you. It was like, no, let me. And so, you know, freshman chemistry class, a teacher has a beaker with a solution and pours in a catalyst that causes a reaction. And some stuff precipitates and gets heavy, settles to the bottom of the beaker. Other stuff gets effervescent and bubbly and flows to the top. The time period we're living in is our solution in the beaker. The crises of our time period is the catalyst that's poured in and it causes a reaction. And some people's reaction is to run away and hide and drop out and and think about themselves and and how am I going to survive without the government and even take the mark of the beast if they tell them to. Right. And other people's response is say, OK, God, where do you need me? Where's the crises? I'm going to run to the need. You know, I'm already dead in my life. Is it with Christ and God? Where do you need me? And so it's a dividing that's taking place. And I can't help but think that, you know, from a spiritual point of view, we're the bride of Christ. And every romance novel builds up to a decision making moment, a forsaking of all others and choosing the one. I feel like the world is being pushed to a decision making moment. And some people are going to choose the all others. They're going to be liked and friended and followed. And others are going to say, I don't care about the all others. You know, all I care about is what God thinks about me. And so but I think that the world is being pushed to this moment. And I just would encourage people to take a stand, realize that that the situations that we're facing is the opportunity for you to take a stand. You know, I mean, if if people say God knows my heart and it's like, yeah, he knew what was in Abraham's heart, but he wanted to see him be willing to sacrifice his son, Isaac. And it's like, imagine a guy watching football and you say, when was the last time you told your wife you love her? And it's like, I can't remember, but she knows my heart. It's like, well, when was the last time you did anything to show your wife you love her? I can't remember, but she knows my heart. It's like, dude, we need to have a little talk. It's like, God knows your heart. Yeah, he does. And he wants to hear some words out of your mouth and he wants to see some action. Blake, what historically can we do that we are not currently doing that can improve our chances of victory? I feel like this is going to sound weird. Like we need to maybe like, maybe log off is the right term or whatever. Like we're very much, I think a lot of people are very passive consumers of what is happening around them. They'll, you know, they'll watch TV. They'll be very informed. They'll watch the news. But it is almost like it's like one of those dramas he talked about in ancient Athens at the start that they are watching it like a TV show and you actually have to view, we have to view ourselves as characters and what is happening around us. And that increases our amount of agency. Like one of the temptations towards like this monarchical impulse is like, oh, we need to have one great person who will just do snap their fingers and fix everything or restore our problems. And what we actually need is the realization that you on a local level can act to improve what is what is going on around you. And that is something where you have personal agency. You can make sure that your family is fine and your town is fine, even if the country is getting worse. And that is what you as an individual person can do best to survive any bad things that happen in the future. Because whenever a cataclysm comes, like it's going to strike down like the weak and vulnerable before it takes down the strong. So make sure you're one of the strong people who stick around and make a choice to be strong.

"And the question is, you need both, right? And currently I do not think we have a virtuous citizenry. So that's declined. And so then you get the government that reflects that. And so to try to rebuild the government, you also need to kind of rebuild the virtue in this society, correct? And the temperance and the prudence and the wisdom and the discipline. You think of it, you're spirit, mind, and body. So your mind is like a super fancy computer. It's at least that. And your body's like the computer case, which makes it silly for people to argue over what color the computer case is. Imagine if I were to say blue computers are better than green computers. It doesn't matter what color the computer, what matters is what software is, what apps are on your phone. And so it doesn't matter what color somebody's skin is, is what behavioral software is running on their brain. And so for the longest time we were putting Judeo Christian morals, treat everybody fair. But now we've surrendered the programming of the children to people that want to put viruses and malware and spyware and corrupted files on their brains, so they don't even know if there's a right or wrong and they can feel like a fuzzy. And it turns into chaos. And once you have societal chaos, that's when people say government come in and restore order. And the government's going to say, OK, we're going to take away everybody's guns. We're going to take away your freedom of speech because you might say something that sets somebody off. And so we're going to limit you rather than them. And we're going to track you. And so when there's chaos, that's the precursor to a dictatorship. And do you find that chaos to be intentional at times, Blake? I lean less that way than a lot of people do. I think as conservatives, it's always our disposition to see everything as planned, hierarchical, intentional, because we respect hierarchies generally. But I just think typically things are not as planned as we often want to believe they are. It's almost comforting to believe that there's one person who planned this because then you can remove that person or you can change their mind or otherwise displace them. And it's much more troubling to imagine that there is no plan and rebuilding from this will be enormously difficult or even impossible. It might it often is that the only way you can restore the civic virtue we talk about is you might need some massive cataclysm that you have to rebuild from scratch. It's like those course of empire paintings, you know, where you see the primal state and then the apogee and then the decline and fall. And the fall is very, very painful when it takes place. Well, and so the question, I mean, without getting too blackpilled, has there ever been an example of a civilization that has turned itself around? Um, slowed down, maybe I don't know if turned around. So I like the story of there's this wicked King Manasseh in Judah, and he's sacrificing children to Moloch. And the prophets come to him and says, look, you're doing the same thing that the people that were in Canaan before Israelite came and did second fraction children. And so because they were doing it, I brought Israel in to judge them and drive them out. And because you're doing it, I'm going to eight years old, starts to seek the Lord and 16 years old. And then he's around his early twenties. He tells them to clean out the temple that his granddad had trashed and they signed the law of God. And the priest read it, said, we wouldn't, we've never read this before. Pretty unusual. They take it to this young 26 year old King, 24 year old, he's never read it. And so he rips his garments and repents and sends to a prophetess in town named hold up the wife of the King's tailor to ask what's going to happen. And she says, tell the man that sent you the judgment will come, but not during his lifetime because he repented. And so for the rest of the 31 year reign of Josiah, there's peace and prosperity. He tears down these sodomite temples, even some of them that Solomon had built because he had a thousand wives. And then he has this huge Passover bigger than anyone before. And then he sends the Levite priests out to teach the law all across Judah. And this is the revival that Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, right, got turned on. And so my feeling is that we deserve judgment, but if we repent, and all liberties individual, all repentance is individual. It's not somebody out there repenting, it's each one of us individually. And so I think that it's an exciting time. And in a sense, we wouldn't have it any other way. I mean, imagine being in heaven, talking to Moses and David and Gideon, they're like telling all their exciting stories. And imagine if you lived in it, it was all done. Like everybody knew the Lord, all the diseases were cured, all the babies were fed, and you're like, I didn't really do anything. It was like boring. So for the rest of eternity, you'll be known as the boring story guy. You know, if we want another example of some degree of comeback, we have our own English political history, and England goes through cycles of being much more tyrannical versus much more free. Like Henry VIII, nowadays we just make TV shows about him, and he's this like fat guy who has a lot of domestic drama. But he basically was like running this incredibly violent tyranny in which anyone who stood in his way would get executed. And we go from that in the 1500s to the 1600s, England has a very vicious civil war over the powers of parliament, religion, and then they have the Glorious Revolution. And, you know, the end state of this is we have 1700s England where they're, you know, blossoming all of these ideas that the American Revolution, you know, further develops, you know, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, separation of powers. This grows out of, you know, England has a very tyrannical moment and then a much more liberty-minded moment where they do cultivate a lot of these virtues, you know, all the virtues that the Puritans are giving their kids as names, you know, prudence, charity, all of that. And, you know, and then we also get out of that the abolition of slavery develops out of this English political tradition. And so I think you could definitely argue that's a good example of a moral cultivation that there were painful moments, you know, they have a very bad civil war, but they do get through it without a total collapse of civilization. So in closing, Bill, history is a teacher. What is one thing that people need to do that is currently not being done that history tells us can improve our chances of revival or victory? Well, every generation has had a crisis. Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, bubonic plague, Spanish flu. And if we get through this crisis, there'll be another one. We get through that crisis, there'll be another one. Jesus said wheat and tares grow together till the harvest. There's always going to be crisis. And the crisis is an opportunity for people to reveal what's on the inside of them. And some people's responses to run away and hide, others people's responses to step up and say, okay, God, where do you need me? And historically, Christians have been on the front lines saying, you know, okay, there's a plague. I'm going to step forward. You know, in Hawaii, the statue that they have in our U.S.

"Should I say that again? Right? Our constitution was intentionally made to keep a president from ruling through mandates and executive orders. Take the power of one person ruling and take the Tower of Babel and scatter it. Yes, and decentralize it. They wanted the legislature to be the most powerful arm of government. Which would be most responsive to the people. And we haven't held up that portion of it terribly well. Not at all. No, we have a fourth branch in administrative state that's been created. They are by far the most powerful, by far. And they act almost as this monarchy dictatorship within our own government. Well, obviously, we lost our own. They intended for legislative supremacy, like have the legislative be the most powerful branch, have the House be the more powerful of the two chambers. And this has decayed over time in the U.S. to the point where the House is probably the weakest. Of the four components of the federal government, or five if you want to include the bureaucracy, the House is probably the weakest one. And it's very difficult to see how we can, you know, rebuild that. And that's probably one of the big pictures from, you know, the big sweep of history. You know, Athens had a democracy. It eventually failed. And it basically took 2,000 years before you got to make another shot at that. As bad as monarchy can be, as bad as these concentrations of power can be, they can be very, very durable. And the alternatives to it can be very fragile. Self-government is extremely rare, isn't it, Bill? And it's slipping away. And there's no guarantee we'll get it back for hundreds of years. Because right now, self-government, I mean, India is not really self-government. I mean, maybe, maybe not. But I'd say out of what, 170 countries, isn't there? About 170 countries, right? Maybe 10 have legitimate self-government. Is that fair, maybe? Right. And usually, if it's smaller, it works. But one of the things is teeter-totter. So the less external restraints requires the populace have more internal restraints, right? So if we're going to be a country with lots of freedom and few laws, the population needs to have more internal laws. Well, virtue, right? PYTO called it virtue. And so ancient Israel called it following the Ten Commandments and the Morals. But it's like a parent gives the teenager the car keys and says, you're a good kid. You've got internal morals. You can come home anytime you want. But if you don't follow those internal morals and you drink and drive and party, you're going to be pulled over by the police and put behind bars and in control. So teenager, you are going to be controlled, either voluntarily from the inside or forcibly from the outside. It's the same way with the nation, where they're going to be voluntarily controlled with internal morals. And what motivates us to follow those is we're accountable to a just God. Or we're going to get rid of God, get rid of our morals, tell everybody there's no right and wrong. Just give in to your passions. You don't even know if you're a boy or a girl anymore. You can kill the baby in the womb. And we shove these kids out on the street and like, there's no morals. There's no guidelines. And I feel like killing you. I feel like hitting you on the head. I feel like taking you. And it turns into chaos. And what happens after chaos? You have a tyrant arise. And it happens every time. One of the things, visual illustration, if you drive into a city, they're doing construction, there's a tall crane and your eyes are drawn to this high part of the crane. But there's something very important on the other side you don't notice. It's called a counterweight. And the higher the crane goes, the heavier that counterweight has to be. Otherwise the whole thing tips over. So the high part, that's a person's success. Maybe an athlete, maybe a politician, maybe an actor. And they're really visible and really successful. But if they don't have private moral virtue on the right, if they start doing all kinds of sin and drugs and stuff on the side, guess what? At some point that thing is going to crash in a day. It's just going to fall over. They're going to be caught in some kind of scam or some immoral stuff. So the higher that God lifts someone up, then they need to have a counterbalance of more private internal morals and virtue and spend time with the Lord in the Bible and so forth.

"I tell people, what if older fish could tell younger fish to stay away from shiny things dangling in the water? But they can't. So every new generation, younger fish sees the shiny thing, it's a hook and they get caught. Socialism is a shiny thing dangling in the water. Free food, free clothes, free education, free welfare. Free is attractive, but there's a hook. You give up control of your life. And so I was reading how to catch pigs in the wild. You put a post in the ground and you throw some corn down. Pigs come, eat the corn, ignore the post. And the next day, there's two posts. Next day, three posts. You start putting them in a little semicircle. Pigs eat corn, eat in the post, eat in the corn, ignoring the post. So finally, they're almost in a closed circle, but there's a little opening. The pigs squeeze through the opening and they're eating their corn. You close the gate and you caught yourself some wild pigs. And so this is the idea. You get people dependent on the government, dependent, dependent. And then you begin to say, okay, if you want to continue this, you're going to incrementally give up your freedom. Let us track you. Let us, you know, get your digital ideas and everything. So socialism is a bait and switch for dictatorship. It sounds nice, but the thing they leave out is human nature and human nature is selfish. That's one of the three branches. Executive, legislative, judicial. I use an illustration of explaining our constitution with a brownie, right? So I'm one of 11 kids. I have five brothers and growing up and five sisters. So one time we came in from playing. My mom had made brownies. There was one left in the pan and my little brother and I are about to fight over it. My mom had an idea. One of you cuts it and the other gets to pick the first piece. Now the one cutting it doesn't know which piece they're going to get. So they're going to try to cut it exactly equal. It works great unless you did it with my little brother because he spit on them and got both pieces, but I punched him. Anyway, but if you can imagine a big brownie, three hungry boys give meat to job. First one is to trace out on the brownie where it's going to be cut. He doesn't know which piece he's going to eventually end up with. So he's going to try to trace those pieces exactly equal. Second one's job is to take the knife and execute it, right? Actually cut it. The third one's job is to judge it and see who gets which piece. So you have the legislative branch tracing and laying out the laws, the executive branch signing it, cutting it, putting it into law, and the judicial branch judging the law. It's a stroke of genius. Selfish greedy people keep another selfish greedy people from becoming selfish and greedy. It would be like a Sunday school assignment. Design a system of government where sinners keep other sinners from sinning. That's what our constitution is. James Madison said there's no angels on earth to govern us. We're all human. We're all selfish. We'll all prefer our family and friends. So what do you do? You take the power of ruling and make a three-way tug-of-war. And George Washington in his farewell address warns the only thing that can short circuit this is parties, right? So if two or more, you know, branches of the government belong to the same political party, then why should we pull against each other? Let's team up against that other branch. And it loses its dynamic tension and it falls apart. But our founders were preoccupied with how to take the power of a king and separate it. In other words, our constitution is basically a way to prevent a president from ruling through mandates and executive orders.

"Light and truth? That's really it. Urim and Turim was on Yale. Bill, you flagged me in Boise. You would have thought of something in Deuteronomy, of something I said about God knows the plans before you, but he gives you a chance to act. Do you remember what you told me? Oh, yeah. Yeah. So God knows the future. In a sense, he knows all the possible futures. And he tells you what they are. And he lets you choose— And then he's smart enough to know how you're going to choose. So you have Deuteronomy 28, and he says, if you hearken to the voice of the Lord, this will be your future. You'll be blessed coming in, blessed coming out. If you do not hearken to the voice of the Lord, this will be your future. The diseases of Egypt will come upon you. The stranger will come in amongst you and rise up above you. You've got Jeremiah going to King Zedekiah, saying, if you go out and surrender to the King of Babylon, Jerusalem is going to be spared. If you do not go out and surrender to the King of Babylon, Jerusalem will be burned to the ground. So here are the two possible futures. You choose. Please choose life. Please choose the route. But you choose. And God's smart enough to know how we're going to choose. But this is a concept that I develop in a new book called Believe. And it's how can God give us free will yet still be in control? And it gets to the point where I think the Bible says, God created light and Einstein's theory. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. And Einstein's theory of relativity is if you could travel the speed of light for you, time would stand still. We'll never comprehend that. But there's a verse that says, a day with the Lord is as a thousand years. Imagine experiencing a day as if it was a thousand years. In other words, God exists in the ever present now. I am that I am. And we're moving in slow motion compared to him. And so we get to make our little free will decisions, but he can readjust every electron in the universe.

"Interesting things, because the people are in charge, if you have an agenda, how do you pitch it to 6,000 people? They invented theater. And you would get the whole city together and you would put on plays, comedies, tragedies, satires, where you would ridicule and buffoon certain points of view and honor and extol other points of view. And you read Aristophanes and these different comedies. It reads like Saturday Night Live. I mean, they're literally making fun of living politicians by name. And you would leave the theaters saying, I don't want to be like that poor guy that was ridiculed. And you back away from him and everything you stood for. And then in the tragedies, they would make somebody noble and remembered. And so I want to be like him. And so from that time till now, theater is always political in a country where it's the people that are the rulers. So think of your favorite sitcom or movie. There's a character you identify with. First couple episodes, they're upstanding. And then the writers begin to have this character make morally compromising decisions. A little cheating here, a little lying there, a little lust, a little revenge, a little approving of different lifestyles. And you find yourself apologizing for him, saying, I know James Bond is with a woman he's not married to, but he's about to save the world. So can we get on with the story? And it minimizes something that used to be important to you. And then they portray people that hold old traditional values as simpletons and bumpkins and idiots. And you turn off the TV saying, yeah, that person, they were old fashioned and stodgy. And the other person, they were cool. And I want to wear their tennis shoes. And so from Athens till now, theater, media, Hollywood, it's always political in a country where it's the people that are the king. And so we have Athens. We have the people that are the king, 6,000 of them. And they would call them out of their homes to the marketplace. Then you have Philip of Macedon. And he is conquering Thebes and Thrace and the Pangonian hills where there's gold and Amphipolis that controls those gold mines. And Philip of Macedon takes money and buys citizens of Athens. It's called the Macedonian party. And so Philip's conquering. And so the citizens get together and say, man, we got to get our Navy going. We got to get our army going. Philip's conquering. And these paid liars would stand up in the market and say, wait, wait, wait, let's not get carried away. I hear Philip's not such a bad guy. I hear he's not conquering city. He's liberating them. And they would gather around them people that believe their lies, who Lenin later referred to as useful idiots. And it's so confused the city that when Philip marched up to the walls, they just opened the gates and he came in and took over. This is exactly the same as China going to countries and finding politicians in these countries that they can give money to. And then when they all get together in their legislatures and they're like, oh, we need to do this and that, they go, no, no, no, wait, I hear. And they're bought, they're paid for, right? And so then when you're trying to get, well, we got to get our defenses going. We got to defend our allies to want to say, oh, no, no, let's not. You have a thought book? There's just another very fun example of this in kind of 1500, 1600s Poland, they had their like old medieval legislature and it had a problem. You had to be unanimous to do anything. And so one person could derail everything. And eventually all of Poland's an incredible thing they could hack. And so they would just start, you would pay off your one guy, your couple guys in the Polish legislature, and they could literally just, they called it. What year was this? This would be like the 1600s and early 1700s. It was called the Liberum Veto, free veto. And so any one guy who showed up at their legislature the same could just break the whole thing with, by just essentially vetoing everything. And it started off as a rare deal. And then by the 1700s, anytime they wanted to do anything, imagine if any one senator could just dissolve the US Congress at will. And we might kind of like that idea a little bit. But, you know, you do need Congress to do things sometimes. So in the book here, I want to try to keep focused on a couple things here. Socialism, the real history from Plato to the present. One of the things that you touch on, Bill, repeatedly is the rise of the tyrant. And you wrote a whole book on that, right? So if you were to say, what are a couple things that tyrants throughout history have in common? What are characteristics that most tyrants share? Do they have a pattern from either from Nero to Stalin to Lenin to Mussolini? Yeah, it's selfish human nature. And so Saint Augustine called it libido dominandi, the lust to dominate. You put some kids on a playground, one's the bully. You put some junior high girls in a clique, one's the diva. You put some people in the woods, one's an Indian chief. You put them in an inner city, one of them is a gang leader. And all the king is a glorified gang leader. And so they usually say that they want to get more power to do good. A Bible story is Joseph in Egypt was a godly guy, and he concentrates power into the hands of the Pharaoh. And this Pharaoh does good, right? He feeds the children of Israel, the next Pharaoh. And then there's a new Pharaoh that does not know Joseph. Yes, that's right. Who did not know Joseph. And he throws the turning point of Exodus. Yeah. And so that's the dilemma. You get our guy in there and you sort of let him concentrate power that he shouldn't because he's pushing our agenda, but he's not in there forever. And it all gets handed over to the other party and they use this power for evil, right? They push in their agenda. And you look at William Howard Taft was the one who pushed through the Supreme Court, getting their own building. And he's the first one to hire a staffer. And he federalized the court system. He's a Republican. So that used to be different federal courts could make decisions and they didn't always jive. And you sort of knew this part of the country acted this way. Well, he wanted to make it so when the Supreme Court said it, it's the law of the land. Well, he's a Republican, but who comes after him? You get Woodrow Wilson. Yeah. Well, no, this is Taft is the 27th president. But afterwards he becomes the chief justice of the Supreme Court. But then you have Franklin Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt says, OK, the Supreme Court says it's the law. We're going to push all these New Deal things. And then it gets passed on to the whole pro-abortion and change in marriage and so forth. But it was a Republican that said, hey, let's centralize power because we can do good better, not realizing that you're going to pass it over to the other party and they'll use it for wrong. And so one of the trends is you get somebody that says they wanted and even the Lord of the Rings. There's a scene where the little Gandalf or little Frodo offers the ring of power to Gandalf and they do the special effects and Gandalf says, don't tempt me, Frodo. I dare not take it, not even to keep it safe. Understand, Frodo, I would use this ring from a desire to do good, but through me it would wield the powers too terrible to imagine. It's like, what does he mean? I would try to do good. But so that's the problem is, is if you get anybody in power, you would tend to prefer your family and friends. You got a family member that's in trouble. You're like, OK, you know, I talk to so and so. I'll get it taken care of and you get them off the hook. If you're not a family member, you don't get that special treatment. And that's the norm. And if somebody wants to point out your favoritism, you're going to be embarrassed when you shut them up. So powercrubs and absolute powercrubs, absolutely. And so that's why it makes ancient Israel coming out of Egypt so amazing that you could have millions of people for 400 years not have a king. And it worked because every citizen was taught the law and they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So you're about to steal. Nobody's around. Then you think, God's watching me. This was the Joshua generation onwards. You're right. So it's so post the the people of Egypt, their children from that point forward. Correct. It would be it would be Joshua entering the promised land up until console. So you got it. It's that 400 year period. Law has been delivered. The old generation dies. The new generation enters the promised land. Yeah. And it worked as long as the priest taught it. And then when the priest they were supposed to be a nation of priests. Yeah. That was that was the idea of Israel. And then when when the Levites stopped teaching the law, it fell apart. And you think they stopped teaching the law. Well, here's the story. Eli, the high priest, his own sons are sleeping with women in the tent where the Ark of the Covenant is. And then there's another story of a Levite with a concubine. And the law says the Levites to marry a virgin of his own tribe. So he's not following it. And then they're traveling in a house surrounded by sodomites. Something about that behavior, this casting off a self-restraint, this abandonment of passion. And it turns into this chaos. The poor girl dies and raped to death. And they go to Samuel, a prophet. They say the self-government system is not working. We want to be like the other countries. We want a king. And then they go to Samuel and give us a king and be careful what you wish for, basically. Yeah. And Samuel cries and the Lord tells them they did not reject you. They rejected me. So God's original plan for ancient Israel was to not have a king, have millions of people taught the law and personally accountable to God to follow the law. And that's the periods called the Hebrew Republic. And that was what was looked to by America's founding fathers as the model. That's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. I mean, to this day— There was a requirement to graduate, I think. Yeah. To this day, Yale has Hebrew characters on its coat of arms. And so really, King Saul is the divider between Europe and America. You think King Saul? Right. So the kings of Europe looked to the Bible for their authority, but they looked to the King Saul and on. The Calvinist Puritans that found the New England, they looked to the pre-King Saul period, this 400-year period where you have millions of people and no king, but everybody's taught the law and personally accountable to God to follow the law.

"I'm defending the common people against them. But once he gets rid of Pompey, instead of him going back to the Republic and giving the populares stuff, he just makes himself a dictator. When did the Praetorian Guard deep state bureaucracy start to get formed? That's a little bit later. So Caesar gets assassinated on the Ides of March. He gets assassinated. There's a second triumvirate. This takes a long time to unwind itself, about 15 years or so before the final civil war is over. His nephew, Octavian, who renames himself after Julius Caesar, gets formally adopted. He becomes Augustus, which is a title they give him. And, you know, he mentioned that, you know, you could never call yourself a king in Rome. So he's doesn't get declared king. And our very word emperor sort of comes from imperator, which just means like holding command. So his actual title is Princeps, first citizen, basically. And so he's the first citizen of Rome, the first man of Rome. Sort of like in Russia, they would call him comrade, comrade Stalin. But everybody knows that he's not an equal. He's the guy in charge. And he just has, the way he runs things is sort of, it's a constitutional fiction where he just holds every high office. So he's the Pontifex Maximus. He's, I don't know if they were still, if they were consul every year, but they sort of were above the consuls, which were the old chief executive. What Cicero was. Yeah. So they would, I think they still appointed consuls, but it was just a total fiction. So the deep state emerges over a period of time. And eventually, is it fair to say the deep state starts running the government, the government is not running the deep state or the emperor or the head of... It's a bureaucratic operation. So he has this praetorian guard. What I'm getting at is what we're living through in America right now is nothing new. We've seen this pattern manifest before. They call it the patronage system. So it's the guy at the top that gets to decide who gets the government bailouts. And then they get the money, they end up giving money to their friends. It's like BlackRock. If you do the DEI, then you get loans. And so it's using the money from the guy at the top, but through this bureaucratic system. It's like electrons all have to line up before lightning strikes. It's like you get everybody to submit, but you're establishing this dictatorship. There's an interesting quote from William Henry Harrison. He said, Caesar became the master of the Roman people under the pretense of supporting the democratic claims of the former against the aristocracy of the latter. So he's saying, I'm going to support the people against those terrible rich people, even though once he gets in, he makes himself a 100% absolute dictator. Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here. We are saving babies with Preborn by providing free ultrasounds. When you introduce a girl to her baby by providing an ultrasound, you're giving her the truth at the most important time in her life. And more than 85% of the time she sees the baby and hears the baby's heartbeat, she will choose life. The voices that call themselves pro-choice are loud and proud, and they are everywhere. It might feel like an uphill battle, but there is no better fight to fight than with the truth of an ultrasound. $140 gives five mothers a free ultrasound and saves babies. $280 can save 10 babies. For just $28 a month, you can save a baby a month for less than a dollar a day. And $15,000 gift will provide an ultrasound machine that will save lives for years to come. Whether you want to save one baby or five or hundreds, that opportunity is just a phone call or click away. I'm a donor to Preborn, and you should be too. Call 833-850-BABY. That is 833-850-2229. Or go to preborn.org. If you want to save one baby or five or hundreds, the opportunity is just right there. Go to preborn.org. We talked about the administrative state. I haven't really figured out the answer to my question. I don't think there's a good answer to it, which is can you disassemble this thing looking through history? But you want to talk about Philip of Macedon. How does that all connect, if at all, to these themes? Well, I wanted to throw one more thing. Caesar stacked the Senate. There were 600 senators. He appointed personally 300 more. So they still kept the title of Roman Republic. But since he had 300 senators that were just doing his bidding, it more or less switched to him. SPQR changed. And they were like foreign senators in some cases that he would have been up in Gaul, modern France, which he conquers. And he appoints some of these Gauls to the Senate, which is highly controversial. And he even named a month after himself. So the beginning of the year was March 22nd. July was his month, right? July. And then Augustus Caesar named the next month after himself, August. But Philip of Macedon. So we have the Roman Republic. But before Caesar and the triumvirate, you had these city-states. Now, an easy way to explain democracies and republics, demos means people, krasi means rule. So in a democracy, the people rule. There were 6,000 citizens of Athens. The word citizen is Greek. It means co-ruler, co-sovereign, co-king. Every citizen had to be at every meeting every day to talk about every issue. And if you didn't keep up with what they're talking about, you're called an idiotus, an idiot.

"And then, so Crassus is over there in Haran, Turkey. Did he get his head cut off or something? He decides, I'm going to be this general. And he's like Pompey conquered Syria and Judea and a lot of other places. Caesar's off in Gaul. I just have a giant pile of money. I need to prove that I'm this great general. And so he gets this big expensive army, pays for the whole thing himself, walks five miles across the border into Parthia, and they kick his butt and cut his head off. And they pour, I think, molten silver, molten gold, I can't remember which, down whatever's left of his head. And so then that destabilizes the triumphant. Yeah. And they removed a third of it. Before that, there was the famous Spartacus, and these are gladiators. Yeah, they got tired of having to kill each other. And so they decided to leave. And these gladiators are going to the toe of Italy, and they got some pirate ships that they've arranged to pick them up. Crassus pays the pirate ships not to come. And so these gladiators, what do they do? Well, they start marching back to Rome. And Crassus is like, I'm going to defend Rome. And he goes out there and kills him, but he doesn't get the glory for the win anyway. OK, Bill. So then what happens? Caesar's up in France or Germany or whatever, and Pompey takes the day, and Caesar says, not so fast, my friend. Right. So Crassus dies in the Battle of Carna, 53 BC. And so now you have two people left, Caesar and Pompey. And Pompey's in Rome, but he leaves, goes to the Adriatic, and Caesar marches into Rome. Now, in Rome, they had a treasury, and it was called the Temple of Saturn. And it was like their Federal Reserve. Every country would use the temple as their storage for money, even in Jerusalem, right? All the gold was stored in the temple. And so it was sort of a given that nobody would touch that, except Caesar doesn't care what their traditions are. He goes to the treasury and takes 15,000 bards of gold, 30,000 bards of silver, 15 million accessories of coins, and he uses the money to buy Antifa rioters. He says, use money to get men, use men to get money, right? So he buys them, then they're supporting him, and then he ends up chasing Pompey, and then eventually- Defeats him in the Middle East somewhere, right? Persia or something? Greece. And so it's sort of interesting. William Henry Harrison, in his inaugural address- The shortest serving president? Correct. 28 days or something? And shortest term, but longest inaugural. But he says, the executive department has become dangerous, appointing power to bring under its control the whole revenues of the country, to stamp this monarchical character on our government, but the control of the public finances. The first Roman emperor, in his attempt to seize the sacred treasure, silenced opposition of the officers there at the Temple of Saturn, to whose charge it had been committed with a significant allusion to his sword. So you got these Temple of Saturn people, we're supposed to guard this gold? And Caesar says, okay, I'm going to kill you with my sword. And so he takes this money, Caesar, and he uses it, and Will and Ariel Durant wrote in their Lessons of History, in Italy rival factions competed in wholesale purchase of votes. In 53 BC, one group of voters received 10 million successors for its support. And so that's Julius Caesar buying votes. And then after he kills, or after Pompey was wanting to preserve the Republic, even though it had gravitated to these parties, and Caesar was representing the populares, or the populist party. So Caesar was saying, I'm defending you common people against those rich Republicans.

"And so it means that their revolution even is more orderly. We're able to have the American Revolution. We don't literally behead every single person connected with the king in America. Whereas when the French ancien regime comes down, it is an extremely bloody affair. And it's not, you know, everyone involved kind of comes off worse as a result of it. You know, the people who are upholding the regime are more violent. The people overthrowing the regime are more violent. So we have this permanent deep state. We can all agree with that right now running the country. Bill, what historical precedent can be instructive of how to dismantle and or correct this creation of the progressive bureaucracy? So as more power concentrates into fewer hands globally, God's counterbalance is to get more people involved locally, right? So it's a counterbalance. So if we're going to be fewer hands globally power, our response is get more people involved locally. I mean, there's more people that go to a church than vote in a school board election. You just get out there and start getting involved. And that's the only way the counterbalance has to be local action. Yeah, yeah, it has to be more people involved. Fewer people with more power are lots and lots of people with little bits of power. But we need to each take our little bit of power. Now, you know, can we turn it around? I'm just hoping we slow it down. So whenever you have people ruling themselves, two things happen. It works. And people get a chance to be all that they want to be and become creative. And they either become so successful, they become targets of attack by kings, and then they get co-opted, or they get bigger and bigger. And it builds this bureaucracy. And if you can imagine trying to float on top of a beach ball with suntan lotion on, it's really hard. And then you slip off and the beach ball pops up. But what happens is once it gets top-heavy with too big of a people, it flips instantly into addiction. And that's what happened with Rome. So Rome was a republic from 509 BC up until 27 BC. From Romulus to... They had seven kings, and the last king was Tarquinius. Tarquin the Proud. And Tarquin the what a name. And Sextus raped a virtuous woman named Lucretia. And she was so distraught, she gathers the Roman leaders together, and she commits suicide right in front of them. And the rape of Lucretia, there's all kinds of artwork, you know, with Michelangelo and, you know, they all... This is a theme that's been... Even Saint Augustine mentioned it, the rape of Lucretia in the city of God. So she kills herself. These Roman leaders get so upset that she killed herself right in front of them. But what do they do? They go out and drive King Tarquinius out, and they set up a republic. And in the republic, you have the people that are the king. And they made a rule. Publius was one of the leaders. And the rule was if anybody ever would make themselves king, anybody else could kill that person without any repercussions. So for 500 years, nobody in the Roman Republic wanted to come anywhere near being called... that he was thinking about being king. When he heard the rumor, he destroyed his own mansion. And so you have... Over time, you have 600 senators, and they're representing their little areas. And it gravitates into three parties, right? So we have Democrat, Republican, maybe Libertarian. Well, their three parties were led by Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus. It's the triumphant. The triumphant. The first triumphant, because there's two.

"thousands years" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Okay, welcome back, everybody. Email us freedom at charliekirk.com. Very special hour. We have Blake Neff, fan favorite, and Bill Federer. Welcome back, Bill. Hey, Charlie. Good to be with you. So I have two minds that have IQs off the charts that know history very, very well. I'm going to do my best to try to keep us on topic while also getting our audience educated on history, philosophy, and what we are living through. Bill, we've had you on the show many times, and I'm actually just rereading socialism, the real history from Plato to the present. Tell us about this book, Bill. Right. So Plato was the first one that talked about everybody owning everything in common, and it sounds good until you think it through. Somebody has to be in the government handing out common stuff, and they're always going to be tempted to want to funnel a little extra to their family and friends on the side and hold back from someone they don't like, and before you know it, it gets discretionary, and the saying is, he who holds the purse strings has the power. So every attempt at everybody owning everything equally always ends up with a deep state bureaucracy passing out favors to their friends with the most corrupt guy at the top, a dictator. And then I go in the book to how these different attempts to institute socialism over the years, and people say, well, wasn't the early church socialist? No, the early church was the early church. Socialism is counterfeit early church, and the difference is between the word voluntary and involuntary. So early believers voluntarily sold their property, laid it at the feet of the apostles. They didn't have the government take away their property and laid it at the feet of the apostles. And then when the children of Israel went into the promised land, every family was given property. If you own property, you can accumulate stuff, the Bible call that being blessed, and you can give away some of your stuff, the Bible call that charity. Well, if you don't own any property, how can you be charitable? How can you give away what you don't have? And so the idea is that Lenin said socialism is a can be summed up in one sentence, abolition of private property. So one part of this I want to focus on, because I'm going to try to do my best to connect this history to today, and you've talked about it, is this idea of a permanent bureaucracy, almost like a Praetorian Guard, right? You talk about this in the book. Is this a characteristic we see manifest time and time again, that if you have a dictator despot, a non-small-R Republican form of government, by definition, you're going to have to have almost a permanent Leviathan that issues, that decrees the orders, and that are somewhat untouchable. Is that fair to say historically? Yeah, the default setting for human government is gangs, and all a king is is a glorified gang leader. And if there were no police tomorrow, what would happen? Well, it'd be fine for a couple of days, and then people would start stealing stuff from stores, and then when the stores are empty, they'd start going house to house, and then you would get your neighborhood together and say, we need to defend ourselves. And Joe here, he's a little bit better at knowing how to fight than the rest, and so we'll all elect Joe as our captain. And it's good. You fight, you win. But over time, you're going to be indebted to this person, and that's how kings developed. And so you'd have a good king and the bad king. And so the default setting for human government is kings, and it's hierarchical. If you are friends with the guy at the top, you are more equal. If you're not their friend, you're less equal. And if you're their enemy, you're dead. It's called treason. Or you're a slave. People say, I thought slavery started in 1619. No, wherever you had the first king on top, you had slaves on the bottom. And so that's the default setting, is gangs. So you have Nimrod, Tower of Babel, and Pharaohs, and Caesars, and Caesars, and Sultans, and Tsars, and Maharaj, and Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar, Child of the Hunt, Kings of Spain, France, and Austria. That's the norm. And so what's rare is people getting a chance to rule themselves without a king. Self-government, which the Hebrews were the first example that we know, at least for some period of time, they had some form of self-government. So Blake, I want to connect this. Is there an example ever of, and Bill, you could chime in once Blake answers, of successfully challenging, disrupting, or dismantling an administrative state? Well, I mean, they tend to crash rather spectacularly when they do fall apart. But the whole civilization actually crashes with it. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. So you get these, if you have a very rigid order, it is inherently unstable. And it makes probably everyone involved with it worse, I think you could say. So it's like when you compare English society with French society before the revolutions, where English society has a stronger tradition of decentralized government, self-government.

Dr. Peter McCullough: Concerning Spike Protein From mRNA Vaccines

"To specific just in generalities your thoughts on that right so let me get it clear again there there is a high risk risk group but it's not a third is only four point two percent is only four point two percent so you there's know a third where nothing happens it's like my mother -in -law she took two shots she's 90 years old she didn't even feel it to this day she doesn't know what the big deal is because it's so benign and two -thirds have some mild side effects it's point four two percent this tiny fraction where the action is but what we've learned is there are some risk mitigation strategies we can't make any therapeutic claims but really really good preclinical data from japan this spike protein that installed gets with the vaccines and with covid the body can't clear it out itself the body doesn't have its own degragative enzymes because the spike protein is actually genetically engineered to be resistant. It was engineered in the Wuhan lab in China. That's what was found out in the investigations. So the Japanese have figured out that an enzyme called nattokinase which is derived from the fermentation of soy with a bacteria called bacillus subtilis natto it has health benefits anyway it's been used over a thousand years the Japanese have eaten it for about 20 years they use it as a cardiovascular supplement. It's a mild blood thinner but it reliably dissolves the spike protein. This is very encouraging we're seeing patients now start to get better with neuropathy and a variety of problems blood clots in it about three months of use. So so this is great news another natural substance called bromelain it's also an enzyme derived from the stems of pineapples it's available over -the -counter in preclinical studies again it partially develops spike protein. Then a recent randomized trial using curcumin also had very positive effects in people who have had COVID and have taken the vaccine. Isn't it interesting that the natural products we're

"Your thoughts on that. Right. So let me get it clear, Dan. there There is a high risk group, but it's not a third. It's only four point two percent. It's only four point two percent. So, you know, there's a third where nothing happens. It's like my mother -in -law. She took two shots. She's 90 years old. She didn't even feel it to this day. She doesn't know what the big deal is because it's so benign. And two thirds have some mild side effects. It's four point two percent, this tiny fraction where the action is. But what we've learned is there some are risk mitigation strategies. We can't make any therapeutic claims, but really, really good preclinical data from Japan. This spike protein that gets installed with the vaccines and with COVID, the body can't clear it out itself. The body doesn't have its own degradative enzymes because the spike protein is actually genetically engineered to be resistant. It was engineered in the Wuhan lab in China.

1 Chronicles 4: The Fate of the Tribe of Simeon

The Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 4: The Fate of the Tribe of Simeon

"Later in chapter four, we see that the tribe of Simeon is shrinking. Jacob hinted at this when he prophesied over Simeon way back in genesis 49, saying cursed be their anger for it is fierce and their wrath for it is cruel. I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. And Moses also hinted at this in deuteronomy 33 right before he died when he was blessing the tribes and failed to offer a blessing to Simeon. It kind of blows my mind when I noticed that God has been dropping a trail of breadcrumbs for a few thousand years. And just so we don't forget what all this relates back to, it all started back in genesis 34 when Simeon and Levi killed all the men of shechem to avenge their sister dinah's rape. So if you think back to that prophecy from Jacob that I just mentioned, the one that says, I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. That prophecy was for both Simeon and Levi for both brothers. And we see that Levi has been scattered and divided as well. The levites don't have their own land and they live spread out among the other tribes. God fulfilled Jacob's prophecy for both tribes.

He Is Worthy of New Song

He Is Worthy of New Song

"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Psalm chapter 33 verse three sing to him a new song, play skillfully on the strings. It allowed shouts. I love this verse and particularly that first phrase sing to him a new song. This is a phrase we see multiple times in the psalms and all the way to the end of the Bible in the book of revelation when it says they sang a new song saying, and I want you to think with me about why we would sing a new song. I mean, for thousands and thousands of years, there have been songs sung to God, so why do we need new songs? Why would there be a command even here? To sing a new song. Well, think about it. You might sing a new song when you discover or experience something new about God about the one you're singing about or singing too. When you think about God, he is infinite in his glory, which means 10 trillion years from now, we'll still be discovering more glory in God, which means we'll still be singing new songs about things we've seen and things we've experienced in God. So there's that sense in which we are continually seeing experiencing more in God that leads to new songs, and then you think about as the gospel spreads from generation to generation and music changes in different ways. Then God's people in successive generations sing new songs. We're seeing songs today that are different from what God's people were singing a thousand years ago, or a hundred years ago, and we also sing some of those songs, so we sing old songs and new songs, and then think about this as we pray for the spread of the gospel among all the nations. There are thousands of people groups writing in a languages where songs are not being sung and prays to God because they've not been reached by the gospel, but when they're reached by the gospel and people come to Christ and they gather together as the church, then they compose what new songs. I think about one of my favorite songs that I have recorded on my phone. It's from very remote tribe in Asia that had been totally unreached by the gospel until some missionaries at great cost to their lives took the gospel there and people believed it specifically a young girl who then shared the gospel with her mom and dad and her mom and dad believed the gospel and soon thereafter were stoned by the religious tribal leaders in that village because they had put their faith and Jesus in what they called a foreign God and this young girl teenage girl sat down and wrote the first song of worship in her language to God praising him for his love and his faithfulness even amidst hardship and death specifically the death of her parents in this world. She sang a new song. I've got that song recorded on my phone when I listened to it. I can't help but to pray. Well, to lead us in prayer right now, even just thinking about it, God, you are worthy of new songs in every generation and every nation as we discover and experience and see more and more and more of you and all of your glory. And as your glory spreads in the world. So we say yes, we want to sing new songs forever. We want to sing new songs today and go rewatch new songs to be selling around the world to your glory. Gotta replay today for the shahari people of Saudi Arabia. No known followers of Jesus among them. Speakers of the shahari that live in Saudi and Oman and Yemen, God we pray for songs of worship to be sung in the shahari language, please God bringing about for your glory caused songs and shouts to arise in shahari, giving you praise Jesus. We pray to help us to live for this, to live, to see your song spread all over the world, even as we sing new songs in our lives and our churches and we lift up loud shouts of praise to you. You are worthy of new songs and loud shouts of praise in our lives and our churches and among all the nations. We pray this in a light of your word and solve 33 verse three in Jesus name amen.

Raymond Arroyo: Christianity Boasts a Historical Precedent

"I like to evangelize the cause but everybody has to make their own decision What I find so compelling about the story of Jesus is the fact that people die for their religion all the time There's nothing new whatever religion you're in You've seen people who martyred themselves for it However the difference with Christianity is the apostles who died for Jesus actually knew Jesus And if you're going to be crucified upside down or beheaded and tortured and poisoned you know at some point you're probably going to be like okay I was just kidding He really didn't rise from the dad like joke's over And none of them did that which has to tell you something No none of them did that And we have look it's the only religion that can boast and historical precedent You can point to the places where all of this happened I mean when you go to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre Dan And forget the little which is the tomb where Christ is buried in Jerusalem Now there's a little edifice there They built a kind of little chapel in the middle of this huge old church But if you go in there and open the icon on the far wall there's a three feet high blackened stubble of a wall Little piece of it behind the chapel they built That is what remains because the Muslims came in a thousand years ago and bulldozed They just burned it to the ground The original sepulchre itself So the fact that you still have these markers and you can see how it was contested and fought over through time That should be a great a support for us and bolster us in our faith and be it should remind us how our predecessors placed such weight on the importance of belief and faith in a God who existed Because once you let that go all civilization slips with it and the totalitarians that come and burn and destroy will take over That should be it's a sobering reminder to us I think this only week

Douglas Wilson Highlights His Upcoming Book "Mere Christendom"

"Talk about that pastor Douglas Wilson. What is the book mere Christendom? So mere Christendom is about how Christians should respond to the disintegration or the collapse of secularism. Secularism is not working. Secularism is on its last legs. People can not function corporately or individually without reference to God. We can not afford to be christless or godless. We have to order our lives around the revelation of God and Jesus Christ. Now, the first Christendom from the conversion of Constantine down through the reformation, let's say. The first Christendom had a long run of a thousand years. There were many missteps and things we did wrong that bugs that needed to be worked out. So what I'm talking about is a reboot of Christendom, where we abandon secularism, we don't do a repeat of everything we did in the first Christendom. We don't want to Spanish inquisition. We don't want to revisit certain things that were wrong and sinful and wicked in the first. That's why I qualify it with mere Christendom, riffing off of Lewis's mere Christianity.

Is the Word 'Conservative' Applicable Today? Dr. Steve Turley Explains

"Conservative, at least I think I am. I hate labels, I grew up under Maggie Thatcher. I guess I'm a paleo con or an old school conservative. But here's the problem, Steve. So theoretically conservatives want to conserve. They want to conserve that which has been demonstrated over millennia to work. Traditional values, the family, man is a man, woman is a woman and so forth. Conserve that which we know works. But in the last 80 years, they've destroyed that. So there is nothing to conserve. I mean, unless you go out to the rural, the heartland, there's nothing to conserve of any value where there is political power. So here's my question to you. Is the word conservative applicable today, if not what do we need to call it? And then secondly, how much harder is the job of those like you and me and those who believe in our nations in the westphalian system and national sovereignty and traditional values to be successful if we're basically recreating, we have to revivify that which the left is dismantled dismantled in the last 80 years since, you know, Antonio gramsci. Yeah, wow. Yeah. How many more questions? Many, many, but let's start with these ones. Oh, that's brilliant. No, I think you're right. I mean, conservatism is going through sort of a redefinition right now with the neocons getting pushed out. Finally, mercifully. And thanks to your team coming in in 2016, 2017. Yeah, to be right. To be and I love how you say things that work for a thousand years because that's the way I think we have to think. That's why I use the term Christendom in the book. I didn't just want to the original title was something on the coming Christian majority. And I got pushed back on that by some colleagues saying no, no, no. I mean, we got to go deeper. This isn't just pat Robertson two. Kind of thing. This is pat Robertson is dependent on generations generations and generation form. So definitely conservatism today, I think, is much more of the, you know, Russell Kirk and Edmund Burke sort of traditionalist. It's one who believes. Are we trad cons? Yeah, there you go. That's right. We are, we are. Medieval cons, something like that, right?

I found these passages by The corinthians that were written by paul Which kind of frame it in a way. That believers will see the great white throne. So i wanted to read though. Second corinthians five. Paul writes for. We must all right here before the judgment seat of christ so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body whether good evil so he frames it in that sense as not entirely judgment but as an accounting. Yeah as as a sore teen you know like so Yes some will be judged but some also be rewarded. Which i thought was interesting because you don't read that revelation. Now maybe they're not talking about the same event. I mean you could go down that path. But first corinthians three he writes this and this is the one. I like more more. So than second. Corinthians i corinthians three verse thirteen and the quality of each person's work will be seen when the day of christ exposes it for on that day. fire rule reveal. Everyone's work the fire will test to ensure it's real quality if what was built on the foundation survives the fire. The builder will receive a reward. But if your work is burnt up and you will lose it but you yourself will be saved as if you had escaped through the fire. What he's talking about here are believers solely exclusively exclusive. Because he says at the end you yourself will be saved as if you had escaped through the fire but his point is do you want to be someone who barely like.
