A highlight from The Effectual Calling WSC #31
"Alright, today we start talking about sharing the gospel and as we start talking about sharing the gospel I want to talk about what the gospel is in as comprehensive a sense as I can talk about that. So that's probably going to be, that is going to be our first topic here. Alright, so let's, so when I do that I want to kind of do it not just according to my opinion but I want to do it officially, right? So in an official sense and so usually on this topic this is the way I start, something like this. Okay, I'm a Bible believing Presbyterian pastor, right? And so the comprehensive gospel that I want to give to you is what Bible believing Presbyterian pastors or Bible believing Presbyterian elders and deacons would all affirm, right? Okay and so then if I don't want to give you my opinion on something that is Bible believing in Presbyterian, how do I get something that would be Bible believing in Presbyterian that isn't just my opinion? Pardon? Okay, the catechism would be one place, right? So I would go to the Westminster documents, I'd go to the Westminster standards, the Westminster confession, the Westminster larger catechism, Westminster shorter catechism, the, or I could go to the three forms of unity that the continental churches use, right? And then when you do that, you would say, okay, this is what reformed officers believe or this is what reformed, yeah, I'll just say officers. So this is what reformed ordained men believe, right? Okay so then what I want to do is I want to find my definition of the gospel there. And I just want to do that just to say, if somebody says to you, what do reformed people believe the gospel is, then you're not just saying, well what Charlie Perkins believes the gospel is, but what you're saying is what reformed churches, reformed men publicly have always said, these are the things we believe, right? Okay, now with that, okay, so we're going to dig around in there and we're going to find a gospel presentation, right? Okay now as we do that, let's think about where we might look, okay? And as you think about where you might look, when you're sharing the gospel, when you're, if you're sharing the gospel. Pardon? That someone would believe, right? Okay, so you want to glorify God and enjoy him forever, right? Okay, and you're doing this in order that they might, the end might be that they believe, right? Okay, good, and so that's one way in which you could say, okay, and then what kinds of hints would that give us as to where to look? And then, all right, then, let's see. Good, all right. So then, one of the, or the place that I would direct you at that point would be the place where we see the Westminster Standards saying the end goal is belief, they don't quite say it that way, would be the Westminster Shorter Catechism question on what is effectual calling, okay? So let's look back in the back of the hymnals here, all right? And so I didn't write a page number down, so it's going to take me a second here to find it, but I'm looking for Shorter Catechism question 31. Okay, so that's page 970, page 970. Okay, now it says what is, okay, so now why do I say, okay, so here's another parameter that we might want to ask or we might want to say and to look at it this way. When the Holy Spirit preaches the Gospel, where do we find what that looks like? And one of the answers I would say that the place we find that is under this question, effectual calling. And therefore, if you want to proclaim the Gospel and you want me to proclaim the Gospel and you want to evaluate whether I proclaim the Gospel, then you would say, then, Pastor, you need to be on board with what the Holy Spirit's doing. Or congregation, I would turn around and say the same thing. Congregation, we want to be on board with what the Holy Spirit's doing, right? So if the Holy Spirit is giving a message that faith in Christ is the end point of that, right, that's the message that we want to be on board with, okay? So then, here we are, in effect, what is effectual calling? So then, all right, so now that you're there, I'm going to ask you to look over that answer for just a minute, and then I want you to tell me, okay, let's dig out some of the parts of that Gospel presentation that are listed there, right? So as you look at that, as this Gospel is going forth, what are some of the parts that you see there? Yes? Okay, so that there is a conviction, right? Now, okay, give me a synonym for conviction, convicted, right? In the old sense, in the old sense, or they would say convicted, today we would usually say something like convinced, okay? So to say that the person, right, so you want them, one of the steps in there is that they would be convinced, okay, good, all right? Yes, Jesse? Okay, so they have to be, so one of the parts of the message is going, now again, I'm talking about a comprehensive message, comprehensive message, meaning that we're trying to get as much of a Gospel presentation in as short a piece as possible, like in one catechism answer, that's what I'm looking at. So okay, so one of the things that a person has to be convinced about is sin, right, okay? Just sin in general, that oh, the world has got plenty of sin. They gotta be convinced that they're a sinner, right? That's usually, so when you're the army of God and you sense that hey, if I keep going down this path and I'm faithful to Jesus, at some point I'm gonna have to tell this person they're a sinner, and you can imagine that in your mind you'll say that might be interesting, let's put it that way, at a minimum, right, okay? So then, so okay, so we have to convince them, not we, but you know, a Gospel presentation aims convince to someone that they're a sinner, right? Okay, what else does it aim to convince? Yes, Cynthia? They have to understand what sin is to begin with. I mean, if they don't have a clue that they'll throw out steel or they'll, you know, tend to be in this, they haven't a clue what sin is. They can't change. Okay, excellent, right? So then part of that in opening it up is going to have to be, we're gonna have to tell them what sin is. I mean, some people are gonna get it, some people are gonna know, they're gonna have enough cultural background or they're gonna have enough Bible background, and some people are not, right? So some people you're going to have to actually explain what sin is, right? So if you go out on the street and you talk to a lot of people out in culture and they've never heard of Noah, it might be a good, you know, it might be that hey, I might have to to say hey, let's talk a little bit about what sin is, right? So you might have to do that, right, excellent, okay, Frank? Okay good, so that kind of question, do you think you're a moral person and what do you think, what Cynthia was mentioning, that you're a sinner, right? That yes, do you think that you're a moral person and okay, yes, now that's a little bit ahead of where I'm at, but that's one way to get at it, right, good, okay? So going back to the question, okay, so you're convinced, what you're hoping from a gospel presentation is the end will be someone is convinced, someone is convinced that they're convinced of, yes, I'll ask Kevin. Okay that they need to be saved, now the question doesn't quite use that, right, but that's yes, they need to be saved, right? Okay so if they're a sinner, okay, Paul? Yes so what I meant was the question just didn't use that vocabulary of saved, but the question does use the concept in saying to be saved means something bad, you must be in a bad situation, right, just kind of like I said in the sermon, that you must be in a bad situation first off that you have to be delivered from or that you have to be transitioned out of, right? And okay, part of that bad situation is sin, the second part of that bad situation is misery, right? Okay so what are some of the miseries, now just to, just so that we're defining that a little bit helpfully, what are some of the miseries that people have to be delivered from? Cynthia? I think people need to tell their story, they need the chance, the opportunity to say how they're living, what they're doing, what is wrong with their life, and then it's the kind of thing where, you know, if they feel convicted that they will get saved, but you even have to explain what getting saved is because they don't know what getting saved is. Good, okay, excellent. So yes, you're a couple of steps ahead of me, but you're right, you need to let people talk to some extent to help them to get to these pieces here in this question, right? Okay? Deb? Okay, good. So at some point, if you're going to talk to somebody about being a sinner, then you're going to have to talk about who God is, right? Because that's where you get the concept. Go, Rod? Yeah, I was going to say that there's a lot of good stuff in this answer, but probably the most important part is the knowledge of Christ, and we're going to be communicating who Christ is. Okay, good. So there's a, alright, so then there is a, you need to know sin, you need to be convinced of sin, you need to know misery, you need to be convinced of misery, and then you have to have your mind enlightened in the knowledge of who Jesus is. What's the relationship between those things? What's the relationship between Jesus and what's been revealed about him and our sin and misery? Yeah, he's the Savior. He's the one who delivers you, gets you out of that situation, and he's the one, when you look at him and the more you know about him, the more you know the state you've been delivered into, right? Okay, so then, alright, so then coming back to, what are some of the miseries that sin has resulted in? So sin is, I'll say that the relationship between sin and misery is that sin causes the misery. What are some of the miseries? Jesse? Evil done against us. Okay, there's evil done against us. Now how does sin cause evil? I'll take that as evil in the sense of people doing things that are hateful, okay? How does sin cause evil to be done against us? Okay, okay, so jealousy, so particular kinds of, alright, so particular sins in a particular person's soul cause hatred to come toward us, for jealousy, for instance, you mentioned, To manifest it some way, so there is, alright, so when we, alright, so let's expand that just a little bit. When you're describing or defining sin for someone, and remember, we're talking about this question is in the context of our statement of faith, so if you're defining sin for someone, what do we mean, what, how would you maybe categorize some sin or, okay, so one of the miseries that's of sin is that sin causes a separation from God, right? So sin is the cause of a separation from God, alright? Then if you're, now we've already talked about being enlightened in the name of, in the knowledge of Christ, so then you move from being separated from God, then what would Christ, what would be the, what would be the, if you're enlightened in the knowledge of Christ, what are you delivered to from your separation? Reconciliation, right? So there'd be this reconciliation that would happen, and that, and you understand that to be, to happen in Christ, so if somebody preaches a sermon that says you're alienated from God, and in Christ you're reconciled, is that a gospel sermon? Yeah, I think according to this definition, that would be a gospel sermon, right? That would be, that would be showing a misery, and it would be showing that misery, and it would be, and of course you want it to show how it is that Christ gets us from that misery to reconciliation, but that's one of, you know, that would, that would be a gospel sermon. Deb? I think one of the things that the Bible says is that sin is just an offense that you can get against another person. Sin is the offense that you can get against another person. Okay, so when you convince someone of sin, you're convincing them not just of the misery that it's against another person, but of the misery, there's another aspect of that misery where it's against a just and a holy God, right? So that would be a reason, that would be something that goes into that presentation, this comprehensive presentation that I'm talking about, right? That your sin is against God. That's part of the definition of it. That'd be one way to say it. Good. All right. Now, maybe, let me, okay, Cynthia, let me. I have always found that to be able to reference your sin with the Bible. Okay. And, you know, say, okay, this looks like something that is a sin. Right. What does the Bible say about it? And I think a lot of times you get people that don't know the Bible, don't know the book. You know, they know. At least, well, they can't find what they're looking for. Right. In which case, there's the magic of what those are. Okay, good. So, one of the ways you can convince somebody that something is a sin is take them through the Bible. Right. And say, here's how the Bible defines sin, you say a particular sin, okay, Kayla. Right. Right. Yes. Okay. Okay. Okay, so we started talking about works. So, let me, let me just talk about that for a second. Okay. Look at this question here. The question there, question 31. What is that answer, that sort of catechism question, answer 31? Where does works, the concept of works, appear there? Or where is it, where do you, where would it be a corollary of what's there? Right. With respect to what a gospel message has to have. Right from the beginning it says God has a work. Oh, okay. So, okay, so effectual calling is a work of God, alright. So, that's, that's one way to get at it. Now, let me just look at, just what's the, what are the aspects of the presentation? What aspect, what would have to be presented that has to do with works that comes out of that answer? Nancy. No, not, now I'm looking for like word, a word in that answer or words in that, a phrase, a word or phrase in that answer that would deal with the concept some way or another of works or be related. Pardon me? Okay, there would be, so Christ's works would be perhaps one way to get at it, right. So, if you're enlightened in the knowledge of Christ, then when you look at the answer, when you're enlightened in the knowledge of Christ, in the big context of this we would know that that means you have, it has to do with Christ's works. That's right. Okay, yeah. In the answer, so in the answer what it says is the Holy Spirit does this. He freely offers, right, and what does he freely offer? Just. Okay, forgiveness of sins is one aspect of it but now again I'm trying to root it back in this particular answer. What is freely offered? What's freely offered is Jesus, right. Okay, so what a gospel presentation has to have in it, it has to have some sin or some misery specifically being talked about, right. It has to have some way in which Christ delivers from that misery or that sin and it has to say that the offer to get you from here to there is that you need Jesus and he is offered to you freely. See that? So that way, now that covers, that covers that justification is offered to you freely. That covers that adoption is offered to you freely. That covers that, you know, all the things that God offers to you, he offers to you in Christ and they're all offered to you freely, right. So that would be the aspect I would look at with respect to works in that. Now did you want to go back to the specifics with respect to? Okay. Okay, right. So, yes, so we want, we, I must, we must offer Christ freely, right. Okay, good. Alright. One of the other words in there, one of the other actions it says is it's a persuasion, right. So you're persuading. So part of, part of persuading someone is, is you say this is a bad situation. You want to go to the good situation. That's just part of persuasion, right. Or there's lots of other aspects of it but you get that idea, right. Okay. Now, what does it say there that, okay, there's one, there's another component in there that belongs to the Holy Spirit exclusively, what would that be? If someone's going to, now, if this gospel presentation is actually going to save someone, what aspect of that answer is the Holy Spirit the ultimate power with respect to? Okay, so yes, some enlightening, yes, it would have to enlighten our minds. Now, what's the means by which that happens? Hopefully, some understanding with, that people are speaking, right, that people are speaking truth, that people are speaking what is morally right or morally wrong, right, those kinds of things. Some people are speaking propositions about who Jesus is, right, okay. God, God renews their will, right. Can I renew your will? I cannot renew you. Can you renew someone's will? You cannot do that, right. So in this context, when it's talking about what the Holy Spirit does, when the Holy Spirit presents the gospel, alongside of that, the Holy Spirit is the one renewing the will through this message, right, of sin and misery, of the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and of him being freely offered. Those components all there, and it's a, okay, good. Now, when we started this, we said, what's the end goal? The end goal, someone said, was faith in Christ. How does it, how's the end goal expressed in this answer? How do you know you, how do you know that the Holy Spirit, according to that answer, that you've gotten to the, you've gotten to the part where that person is saved, where they've been effectually called? Okay, they embrace Jesus, right. So they embrace Jesus, so how do you embrace Jesus? Can you embrace Jesus with your arms? By faith, you embrace Jesus by faith, right. Or, yeah, and so you're holding fast, so what you're being persuaded to do is see your sin and misery, see Jesus as the only solution, see Jesus freely offered as your only solution, and then someone says, okay, what do I need to do? The answer is, hold fast to Jesus, believe upon Jesus, right. Believe that Jesus is the solution to all this sin, all this misery. Understand why that is from the enlightening of your mind in Christ, and then embrace Him, right. Now it's a very, this is a very short answer, so there's a lot of things we'll have to dig out of that, but it's just trying to give you that comprehensive answer. The one thing I'd say is that the Holy Spirit does is He equates and enables us. Right. So it's not up to us to be equated and enabled us to do it. It's up to us to present the God and the Holy Spirit to do it for us. But in the end, it's all right to bring Him to this. Okay, so then the, so the enabling, who, it's only the Holy Spirit that can do the enabling, right. Okay, now, let's not talk about the gospel for a minute, let's just talk about anything. Can human beings persuade, do human beings use speech to try to persuade people? Yes. Okay, so when you are in a gospel presentation, is that a speech mode that is aimed at persuading people? Yes. Can, do you have the power to do that? Oh, yeah, I guess I asked the question wrong. You, do you, you have the power to enter into that conversation in a persuasive manner, right. Do you have the power to actually persuade the person, to move their heart so that they are persuaded? No, you don't have that power, right. But you, but the, but the, what's the word I'm looking for here. The form, literary one of the literary forms you could say, is that a gospel is in its literary form is a persuasive piece of literature, or it's a persuasive piece of speech, right. It's aiming at persuading, fully knowing that I don't have any power to actually move a heart to be persuaded. Is that, am I making that distinction well enough? David. Could it be that you're engaging in a speech act to simply proclaim, and is there, can you distinguish proclaiming from persuading? Could I, could I distinguish proclaiming from persuading? I, probably, probably not because I would, but, well, now wait a minute. Okay, yes, okay, I could. So, let me try this at least. So Paul says this, I came to you as a mother, right. I love you like your mother loves you. Now you have to state that propositionally, but that's not the fullness of that proposition, right. The fullness of, you could say I love you like your mother, but if you don't really love them like their mother, then you're, you know. So part of the gospel, so when someone persuades, if you've been exposed to like classical Christian education curriculum, right. So at kind of the pinnacle of that education, it talks about learning how to persuade people. Okay, now if I want to persuade you, I need to proclaim some things, I need to have the logic in place. But then the other two things I need is I need my character to reflect it. And the third thing that I would need in addition to my character is I would need the emotions. You're trying to get the rest of the, you're not just persuading the intellect, but you're also bringing the heart into it, right. So then that would be, so it wouldn't strictly be proclaiming, I'll say it wouldn't strictly be proclaiming propositions. Maybe I should just say it that way.
Fresh update on "westminster" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Europe
"And around the world on BloombergRadio .com and The Bloomberg Business App Good morning from London, Caroline I'm Hepker and I'm Stephen Carroll you're listening to Daybreak Europe live on London DAB Radio Let's start with a check of the markets this morning so we have a sell -off in Asia MSCI Asia Pacific index down six tenths of 1 % CSI 300 down four tenths of 1 % we're keeping a very close eye on the Bloomberg intelligence gauge of Chinese property stocks they tumbled yesterday and continue to dropped today because of worries around China Evergrande Treasury yields this morning are trading at 4 .55 % up by another basis point after 11 basis points gained yesterday 10 -year yields hitting a 16 -year high the US dollar also rallying currently up a tenth of 1 % crude oil prices edging lower for a second day in a row Brent crude futures trading at $92 dollars 89 those the market Stephen our top stories this morning the troubled Chinese property developer Evergrande says its its mainland unit has defaulted on a 4 billion yuan or 547 million dollar onshore bond and default comes as reports emerged that a former CEO and CFO at the company have been detained by Chinese authorities Bloomberg's loans and bonds reporter Loretta Chen has the details the local media testing which is a reputable media in mainland China reported last night that the ex CFO and CEO of Evergrande group were detained by police and these are the people who used to be right -hand men of Huikao Yan the founder of Evergrande so this is quite significant in terms of the destiny of this company you know whether it's going to finish all these unfinished projects while its chief executives are detained Loretta Chen says the detentions add yet another layer of the comes news after Bloomberg intelligence gauge of Chinese developers dropped by the most since 2022 as concerns over the sector grow now the use chief trade negotiator says that Beijing's failure to condemn Russia's war in Ukraine was damaging China's investment opportunities wrapping up a high -stakes trip to the world's second largest economy Valdis Dombrovskis issued this clear attack on President Xi and Beijing Ping's foreign policy China's position is affecting the country's image not with European consumers but also with businesses over a third of EU companies companies in this country have indicated that China's position on the war is making it a less attractive investment China's response and its contribution to resolving the war is the a way that is important for us to engage Valdis Dombrovskis' trip to China comes as the EU announced a probe our subsidies the move has increased tensions between Brussels and Beijing with the most significant in a damaging trade war The CEOs of two of Wall Street's biggest banks have been weighing in on growth and rates Goldman Sachs boss David Solomon says he expects the Fed to hike further and the US economy to cool. Here's what he told the American Energy Security Summit I think it's going to be hard to get inflation back to target the and that probably means if inflation is sticky we will see additional interest rate increases and ultimately probably that does lead to a little bit more of a slowdown in the economy whether that's a recession or just it's a slowdown you know it's hard to say but it would be unprecedented to go through this type of a tightening cycle and not see us get to a little bit of slower economic growth than what we're seeing right now. The comments from Solomon Thomas JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon also sounded a warning on higher rates saying quote I'm not sure the world is prepared for seven percent. Speaking to the Times of India Dimon said that going to that level would be much more painful than getting to five percent. The London Stock Exchange CEO Julia Hoggart says that UK firms risk their market value by listing in America. The LSE boss told a conference that international companies underperform US domestic companies in their stock market. She noted that out of 23 British firms that have raised over a hundred million dollars in the US over the past decade, six have delisted, 13 are trading down and only four are trading above their initial value. Nissan says it's still committed to making only electric vehicles by 2030 despite Rishi Sinak's green rollback, Bloomberg's Ewan Potts reports. The boss of the UK's biggest car factory says there's no turning back now. The words of Nissan's CEO who says he's sticking with the company's plan to produce only electric vehicles in Europe by 2030. Last week Prime Minister Rishi Sinak pushed back plans for a UK ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by five years to 2035. Nissan's also said it could make more vehicles at its massive Sunderland plant if the UK signs better trade deals to export them. Officials from the EU and UK meanwhile are expected to meet today to discuss their EU tariff regime. In London, I'm Ewan Potts, Bloomberg Radio. Now when it comes to Rishi Sinak, he is also under pressure to say whether it will go ahead. in full it's understood that the prime minister is concerned by the cost of the rail project but he has not confirmed reports that the Birmingham to Manchester section will be scrapped. The former chairman of HS2 until 2021 Alan Cook has told Bloomberg's UK politics podcast the government is ignoring the long -term benefits of the plan. There has to be a much more consistent and concerted view from government about the long -term programs. If we constantly move away from one position to another to another position, it damages our reputation, it damages the way that we actually at look things and actually when we're trying to recruit the very very best people that we need in program, the it makes them very concerned. Alan Cook is currently chairman of the High Lee Manufacturing catapult. The FT reports that the new US owners of Birmingham City Football Club have written to the Prime Minister with a similar warning that he will damage trust in the UK if he scraps HS2 rail project. Citadel founder Ken Griffin is said to have joined a group of investors led by fellow hedge fund manager Paul Marshall in a bid to take over the UK's Telegraph Group. Marshall, co the London -based hedge fund Marshall Waes is lining up backers as he prepares for the auction expected in the coming weeks. Bloomberg understands that Griffin would only invest in such an effort personally through his company. Those are today's top stories. These are the markets right now. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index is down by .01%, 0 Euro stocks 50 futures also down by 0 .01 % and 10 -year US Treasury yields trading higher. Another basis point this morning 4 .55%. Now our food editor Kate Crader has the list that you need to read if you're planning to eat out in London this autumn. She's her got top 13 new London restaurants so the openings that you have to get to and interestingly I suppose when I when Kate lays it out in the piece but I kind of hadn't realised that this is the time of the year which is the you where everything ramps up because everyone's come back to I suppose back from their summer holidays essentially among those that I was very interested in was the Wellesley's opening up a new dining room in the city. I know I love it. Only around the corner. Yeah We'll book in there when that opens up but interestingly there's a Japanese theme running through some of the really hot openings as well and Kate talks about there's the sushi master Masayoshi Takayama who's opening his first UK restaurant in Harrods. They've renovated the food holes in Harrods. Oh my goodness who doesn't love eating in Harrods. Yeah and Paper Moon London in Westminster that's another one and that might be worth a visit. I mean Kate Crader has literally the best job in the entire building. I bump into her sometimes in the Bloomberg coffee area and she always has a marvelous tale. She's trained as a chef actually herself. Okay I mean I always feel that everyone stops her to ask her advice for where they should eat this weekend. Slightly tortured by her colleagues anyway. That's a great piece to read if you get a chance from Kate Crader about the 13 new restaurants in London to eat in this autumn. Okay now let's send our attention then to the Crisis China Evergrande group. It deepened on Monday after the company's mainland unit said that it failed to repay an onshore bond. The poster child for China's property woes scrapped key creditor meetings at the last minute too. Let's discuss now China credit editor Kevin Kingsbury. Kevin thank you for joining us. How did the defaults come about firstly? Well this is the second time actually that Evergrande, its Hangde unit, has defaulted on this particular bond. Six months ago it had an interest payment and it didn't pay it then. Said it was working with bondholders and the bond 4 billion yuan, it was putable on Monday. That means it creditors was the had the ability to demand early repayment.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/06/23
"So, we saluted the life of Jimmy Buffett yesterday, properly so, but boy did we miss a birthday yesterday. Freddie Mercury would have been 77, passed away back in 91, so I had to pick a Queen song, had to pick a Queen record. How about You're My Best Friend for the Mike and Mark segments? Not bad. There you go, buddy. We can sing We Are the Champions because we're the champion of all things mysterious. And topics that need to be explored. We go where few dare go. You shut me down yesterday when I told you about the Delta Airlines flight that was forced to land. But then, of course, you saw it all over Twitter and X and everything, right? Well, I know because everybody's 12 years old. Somebody had a, I don't even want to say it again, somebody had a horrible digestive event on a plane and they had to sandblast the plane for six hours. They had to replace the carpet. I mean, they had to replace the carpet on the plane. That's a true story. Can you imagine being on that plane and the poor pilot, and there's an audio recording of the pilot saying, five, seven, one, Delta heavy. We have a biohazard problem on the plane. The biohazard. Ladies and gentlemen, you may want to look over the left side of the aircraft because that's where we're going to be issuing the parachute so that you can get the hell off this thing before we all die. I'd never fly again. That'd be it. That'd be it. And speaking of flying, didn't you do it yet? Are you in New York yet? Today? No, after the show today, I'm headed to New York where it's going to be 110 degrees. You know, Texas heat is one thing. New York City heat is ghastly because there's no breeze. You're walking up and down. So we're going to see the Eagles in concert tomorrow night. I'm going to see a couple of shows. We've got some meetings. I'm going to go to Philly for a big event. Oh, cool. With Chris Stiegel. Is that our guy? Chris Stiegel and Dennis Prager and Pastor Robert Jeffers from your neck of the woods. That's right. That's so cool. I have a question for you. It's called, for a moment, welcome to Mike's Entertainment Options or Mike's Travel Habits. As we have noted, you are fresh back from the UK. I trust you had a magnificent time. So Mike's on the ground in England for 24 hours, sends me a picture off of his balcony. Was that a CG? Was that a green screen? Because from your balcony, it's like, oh, there's the London Eye, oh, there's Westminster Abbey. Where were you? Well, there's a story behind that. I'm a little reluctant to tell the story. Joey and Peg are my dear friends. Joey's a little more frugal than I am. And he found a hotel. And I'll go ahead and say it. It was a nice Marriott right on the River Thames, right outside that giant monstrosity eye thing. That Ferris wheel. It's a massive Ferris wheel. It's gross. I mean, I think about the River Thames and I think of Mary Poppins floating gently. Big Ben and all these beautiful, and then there's this monstrosity, and Brits don't like it either. Everybody kind of, it's a cool tourist thing and you go up and it's one of those giant Ferris wheels. Anyway, the hotel, this Marriott is right at the Ferris wheel. So not only is the infernal thing beeping every time it moves, and so you hear the beeping in your room, but like you saw, you're right there. I mean, the view is crazy, but not only that, but the deal breaker for me, the AC wasn't so good. Is England like Laguna Beach, California, where we stayed at a beautiful place and it happened to be 82 and they didn't have any AC? I thought I was going to die. Well, you know, again, the UK, they're not really like AC -oriented like we are. They have it, but I said, that's it, I'm out, King Tut needs some AC, I got to have air conditioning. And it wasn't even hot over there, but at night, I don't know, I mean, God forbid if the day ever comes where they yank the rug out from under me and I'm, you know, singing show tunes at a cheeseburger joint on the weekends and I can't afford an air conditioner because I got to have an air conditioner. Anyway, I knew of a place, a much nicer hotel, so we actually checked out. That was a one -day gig, but it was spectacular visuals. And speaking of show tunes, that leads me to my actual really quick question because there is stuff going on in the world. So you sent me, as you always do and I love it so much, it's like, hey, look where I am, hey, look where I am. And on at least a couple of occasions, you were in the front row, shocker, of this magnificent show. I guess it's called Tina or somebody is Tina Turner and wow, was she good. Wow, was she good. It's actually a Broadway show that also went to the West End and there was, I saw a woman named Adrian Warren who played the show, played the part, but yeah, it's a musical about the life of Tina Turner. And on another night you went and saw Les Mis. The best production of Les Mis I've ever seen in the history of going to the theater. I bet it was great. But here's my question and here's where you and I are a smidge different. Okay. You're in London and you go to Broadway for lunch like every day. So there's a whole country outside this theater as you sit in a seat and see something that is admittedly fantastic, but that you could see at some other time a hundred yards from where you're staying. But the West End is London's version of Broadway and they do theater a little bit differently. First of all, I mean, the ticket prices are even more affordable. You know, you sit in the stalls over there. They don't call them seats.
Fresh update on "westminster" discussed on Evangelism on SermonAudio
"We took a bit of a detour kind of I said two weeks ago in that we tried to understand the concept of what the confession of faith calls the light of nature. The light of nature. Now this is not a total detour. In fact the confession mentions the light of nature in both paragraphs 1 and 6 of chapter 1. So it's a helpful thing to study in order to understand what the light of nature is particularly as we compare and contrast it with the holy scriptures and yet nevertheless it is somewhat of a detour. Now two weeks ago we talked about the relationship between the light of nature and what we call natural theology or a knowledge of God that is known by nature apart from the scriptures. We saw that far from denying in natural theology our confession in fact though it does not use the term natural theology yet in a sense it does natural theology. It says the light of nature and the works of creation in Providence do so far manifest the goodness wisdom and power of God. So from nature as man observes the works of creation in Providence he concludes several things about God namely that God exists, that he is good, wise, and powerful, and that he is to be worshipped. This is natural theology. We saw furthermore that scripture itself attests to this knowledge of God in nature. We read in Romans chapter 1 verses 18 through 20 Paul says the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth and righteousness because that which is known about God is evident within them for God made it evident to them for since the creation of the world his invisible attributes his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen being understood through what has been made so that they are without excuse. So man can see things he can know things about God from creation Paul says God's invisible attributes his eternal power and divine nature. Or we read Psalm 8 verses 3 through 4 where the psalmist records his his contemplations in his consideration of God from creation he says when I consider the your works the works of your fingers the moon and the stars which you have ordained what is man that you take thought of him and the son of man that you care for him. So scripture also attests to what we call natural theology and then to cap this all off two weeks ago we saw that the reformed theologians to quote Francis Turretin been asked who Francis Turretin was he was a theologian I believe in Geneva he lived there about a hundred years though after Calvin. Francis Turretin says the Orthodox uniformly teach that there is a natural theology the Orthodox uniformly teach that there is a natural theology that's really interesting too because if you've ever read Turretin if there is room for discussion if there are like several opinions that are fair game within the reformed tradition he'll normally tell you that he'll say things like well some of our divines divine is an older term for theologian this is why you get a masters in divinity it's a masters in theology right but Turretin will sometimes say well some of our divines say this others say this but I think this is the best route he's letting you know there's kind of like room for a difference on this matter but he doesn't say that when he comes to natural theology he simply says they uniformly teach that there is a natural theology and we could demonstrate this by taking the rest of our time and going through all your favorite all your favorite guys right Reformation Day is coming up you're like yes that guy we could we could show you from those now the reformers do hold to a natural theology within its proper bounds okay the confession says the holy scripture is the only sufficient certain and infallible rule of all saving knowledge faith and obedience so natural theology gives a knowledge about God but not a saving knowledge it doesn't tell you the gospel in fact the confession says in chapter 20 paragraph 2 the promise of Christ and salvation by him is revealed only by the Word of God neither do the works of creation or Providence with the light of nature make discovery of Christ or grace by him so much as in a general or obscure way so in some ways we might say all that natural theology can really do for the unbeliever is at the end of the day condemn him even more because he has more knowledge about God nevertheless the reform do hold that there is such a thing as reformed theology and natural theology and if I sound like I'm kind of beating a dead horse here I'm being a little feisty it's because there are many today in the reform camp even the reform Baptist camp who we might say maybe as you Texans would say bless their heart they would make the claim that that natural theology is a Roman Catholic thing if you start getting into that oh you're getting you're gonna convert to Rome pretty soon and it's just not true that's just not historically accurate the reformed have always held a subordinate natural theology in fact don't go calling those guys so seniors you're not gonna win any friends but if you had denied natural theology outright the reformed would have thought you may be associated because those were the ones who denied it outright and you never want to be mentioned in the same breath as a well today what I'd like us to do is continue to unpack this concept of the light of nature and in particular I want to relate it to the concept of natural law natural law two weeks ago we considered the light of nature and natural theology today we will consider the light of nature and natural law you might be thinking to yourself perhaps pastor this would be better suited to a study of chapter 19 on the confession on the law of God and you would be right in a sense that's more dealing with the subject matter nevertheless since we are dealing with the light of nature in general and as this is related to natural law it will be helpful to discuss it here today get a knowledge of civil laws from the scriptures by means of general equity we don't deny that but it's not the only place and so it will be helpful to put that here as we're scripture as well okay all right let's go ahead and begin and take your Bibles and open to Romans chapter 2 verses 11 through 16 Romans chapter 2 verses 11 through 16 I don't think this stuff is too bad but it maybe if you didn't have a good cup of coffee this morning you might be like what like I said just listen to it a couple times we're gonna get into some stuff that's okay it's okay to do that every now and then right Jason said I could do it Romans 2 verses 11 through 16 Paul says I'm reading from the NASB for there is no partiality with God for all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law for it is not the hearers of the law who are just before God but the doers of the law will be justified for when Gentiles who do not have the law do instinctively the things of the law these not having the law are a law to themselves in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them on the day when according to my gospel God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus all right well Paul here is unpacking his gospel in Romans chapter 2 particularly the fact that both Jews and Gentiles are guilty before the Lord on the one hand he's addressing a Jewish misconception that merely by virtue of being born a Jew a physical Jew and having the law by which he means the law of Moses that this was sufficient for salvation Paul clobbers this just as Jesus and everyone else just read the Old Testament that that gets clobbered entirely it's not those who have the law merely it's not those who hear the law of Moses but those who do and if you do not keep the law you are in fact condemned by the law on the other hand Paul answers a potential Gentile objection which says well okay hold on preacher why am I condemned we don't even have the law of Moses I don't even know what that is I didn't know I was breaking the law I was ignorant so how can I be guilty it makes sense that the Jew is condemned he had the written law of Moses but I never had it so how can I be guilty well Paul's response is well you're right and you're wrong yes it is true the Gentiles were not given the law of Moses this does not mean however they are completely ignorant and without law altogether he says look at verse verse 14 this is important he says for when Gentiles who do not have the law do instinctively now that term there in the NASB instinctively is really by nature they do by nature okay he says when Gentiles who do not have the law meaning the law of Moses do by nature the things of the law these not having the law of Moses are a law to themselves in that they show the work of the law written in their heart so Paul says no you cannot claim ignorance because although you do not have the law written on parchment yet God has written the work the substance of the law the moral law upon their heart and this law that has been written on the heart we refer to as natural law in fact if you have your confession of faith look to chapter 19 on the law and we'll read paragraphs 1 and 2 chapter 19 of the law paragraphs 1 and 2 paragraph 1 says God gave to Adam a law of universal obedience written in his heart and a particular precept of not eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil so the commandment to not eat the fruit was not the only law that Adam received in the garden it says God wrote a law of universal obedience on his heart okay it continues in paragraph 2 the same law that was first written in the heart of man continued to be a perfect rule of righteousness after the fall and was delivered by God upon Mount Sinai in Ten Commandments and written in two tables the first four containing our duty towards God and the other six our duty to man so there we see that the natural law the law written on the heart is the same in substance as the moral law of Moses the Decalogue or the Ten Commandments these are not two different laws in content but really two different modes of revelation one is seen by nature the other is given in Scripture but they're the same in substance okay well this helps us to understand then what Paul means when he says that the Gentiles who do not have the law of Moses and by that he does not merely mean believing Gentiles he's talking about unbelieving pagans he says they do not have the law of Moses but the law of God is still written on their heart and he says that because of this they by nature do the things of the law there is a sense in which even unbelievers do the things the matter of the law now perhaps somewhere out there a record just skipped you heard like oh and it says okay hold on isn't Paul going to say there is no one who does good no not one didn't you just say pastor two weeks ago the works of unbelievers are not acceptable to God I did all right well then how can you say that pagans can do in some sense the things of the law well first of all I didn't Paul did okay he says they do the things of the law you have to square that with him but in order to address that let's make some distinctions okay first theologians often speak of a civil righteousness a civil righteousness civil righteousness is an outward partial conformity to some aspects of the moral law but not in a sense that they are truly considered good works and not in a sense that they are acceptable to God in fact our confession affirms this in the very same paragraph where it denies that the unregenerate can do good works okay so if you look at chapter 19 of the confession paragraph 7 chapter 19 paragraph 7 if you don't have a confession of faith that there's some free ones out on the table out there but it says works done by unregenerate men although for the matter of them they may be things which God commands and of good use both to themselves and others stop there first note says the unregenerate can do things that for the matter of them may be things which God commands or as Paul said the things of the law so for example God commands that we love our neighbor right I have neighbors most of them are unbelievers and some of them have shown my family great kindness there was a very sweet family that we grew close to a Mexican family in fact they moved out and they let us know where they moved to we just visited them right but we would be doing whatever in the house and you'd have a knock on the door and she would come with like homemade pan dulce or something that's a good neighbor right there just so you know if you don't know what pan dulce is we'll explain to you later okay Jason's like I've never heard of but she was being very kind to us and she's not a believer now we shared the gospel with her and I hope she comes to faith one day but as of yet she is not a believer and yet there was a sense in which that part that is commanded to do to love your neighbor she was in a sense kind of doing right now the confession clarifies though it says yet because they the works of the unregenerate proceed not from a heart purified by faith number Paul says whatever does not proceed from faith is sin or it says nor are they done in a right manner according to the word namely perfectly nor to a right and the glory of God their works are therefore sinful and cannot please God nor make a man meet to receive grace from God nevertheless it's perfectly orthodox and Calvinist and in no way contrary to the doctrine of total depravity to say that unbelievers quote by nature do the things of the law in the outward sense of civil righteousness okay Peter martyr the Italian reformer in his commentary on this passage in Romans he says he explains this he says Paul speaks only of certain outward honest and upright actions which as touching civil righteousness might by nature be performed but he does not say that the Gentiles fully performed the law so that they kept it all whole or that because of it they were justified but only he understands that they performed some certain points of it whereof he infers that Gentiles by the light of nature could discern between honesty and dishonesty between right and wrong indeed he continues if we look upon the life and manners of Cato Atticus Socrates and Aristotes we shall see that injustice and civil comeliness they far excelled a great many Christians yea and also Jews therefore they cannot excuse themselves that they had not a law so the law of God is written on the hearts of all men we call this natural law okay any questions before we move on any questions Paul 19 7 oh was that oh you're right that was 16 sorry on good works I got confused yeah you're right sorry about that sorry anything else yeah I think of all the good things you love about Jesus and the gospel and then deny them all like that's not even a joke it's it's a teaching it's it's the forerunner of modern-day Unitarianism so they deny the Trinity it started by an Italian named Sotsini that's where it gets its name it's very popular in Poland but everything you can think of that's good was denied by the Sosinians like the deity of Christ grace the sovereignty of God and all this stuff yeah but we can talk about that a little bit more yeah you don't want to be so they denied natural theology so again if you you never want to be in their camp really if it's okay if you can avoid it okay all right but now let's ask what exactly does it mean when we say the law was written on the heart how has it been written what does that even mean well in order to ask this this is where I'd say gird up your loins we're not gonna be in Kansas anymore this shouldn't be too bad it should be okay but we're gonna hear some new terms and try to track with me okay in order to answer this we want to talk about what are called common notions common notions has anyone ever heard of common notions you win come on up come on up Joe you win I don't know what you win common notions sometimes they're called implanted or innate notions and they're common because they are common to all mankind one guy gives this definition I'm gonna read it a couple times he said common notions are basic ideas engraved or implanted in the human mind that basic ideas engraved or implanted by God in the human mind that belong to all people so common notions are just very basic ideas and God has put them in the mind or we can say written them on the mind of man now let's go deeper into this common notions have two parts okay there's kind of two parts to common notions attract with me the first part we call principles and the second part are conclusions the first part are principles and the second part are conclusions both of these make up the idea of common notions as far as the principles these are principles of truth or axioms which are implanted in the human mind because they are principles they are self-evident they're self need explanation if I said a bachelor is an unmarried man it's like yeah that's what a bachelor is that's a self-evident statement right one theologian explains this he says we cannot give any reasons of them but as the Sun manifests itself by its own light so do these so these principles are self-evident okay perhaps one of the most fundamental of these self-evident truths so we call the law of non-contradiction you ever heard of that law of non-contradiction it's it's this you're gonna be like yeah that's obvious okay it's this the same thing cannot be affirmed and denied at the same time the same thing cannot be affirmed and denied at the same time something either is or it isn't it can't be both and you go well yeah pastor it's like well I know that's the it's a self-evident truth it's very basic but it's a self-evident truth okay that's what we're talking about when we talk of these principles in fact the term common notions comes from the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid you ever heard of Euclid somebody out there Euclid Euclid in one of his works speaks of five mathematical notions they're self-evident as well just listen to them okay first the whole is greater than its parts yeah the whole is greater than its part the part is not greater than the whole that no things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another if a equals B and C equals B then a equals C right self-evident it's very very basic in the same way then there are self-evident principles of natural law that God has implanted in the mind of men the most fundamental of them is this that good is to be done and evil is to be avoided good is to be done and pursued and evil is to be avoided Thomas Aquinas calls this the first principle of law he says all other precepts of natural law are based on this okay this idea then that good is to be done and evil avoided is generally received from what I found in the reformed as to the Westminster divine in his book the vindication of the law which is a good book say he says this speaking of quote common notions and maxims which are engrafted in all men's hearts he says some of them are speculative namely that there is a God and some are practical namely that good is to be embraced and evil is to be avoided or the famous Puritan Robert Bolton perhaps you've heard of Robert Bolton in his little book helps to humiliation he speaks of quote the common notions of nature which are in the heathen and the first two which he mentions are one that all good is to be done and two that all evil is to be avoided so of these self-evident truths of these principles which God has implanted into the mind the most fundamental is that good is to be done and evil is to be avoided and this is in all men God has put it there that's what Paul is getting out in Romans 2 now there are other principles that some have delineated okay for example Robert Bolton mentions others he says one good is to be done two all evil is to be avoided three kind is to be propagated meaning procreation is a good thing for do as we would be done by the Golden Rule five God is to be honored six a man's life is to be preserved or one other Italian reformer Jerome Zanki he says this he says natural law has three levels and by this he means kind of three different principles and these principles have their own principles okay he says first people can protect themselves against any violence or injury so self-defense is a it's a self-evident principle of natural law he explains this is a natural reaction for all things even trees and plants protect themselves from harm as much as they can for this instinct comes the idea included in the laws of nations that it is permitted to repel military force with force so it's okay to for a nation to fight war and you see this plants do it animals protect themselves therefore this is a self-evident truth okay second he says human beings can not only protect themselves but also advance their race in the human race okay he says through procreation and the education of children this we also have in common with the animals and because of this civil lawyers include marriage reproduction and rearing of children under natural law and lastly he says third an idea appropriate more for humans and for animals human beings must recognize their inclination to God and worship him as they do good to those with whom they live and they must know justice and honesty and turn to them naturally okay so I give you all those to say there are several of these self-evident principles that are in grafted into the mind of man ultimately these principles are all the same for substance with the Ten Commandments of the moral law of Moses in fact you'll find many authors Andrew will it for example our favorite through the book of Daniel he goes through each of the Ten Commandments and he shows that that in substance that is also found in the law of nature as well okay all right well that is the first part of the idea of common notions remember principles and conclusions are you hanging with me any questions before we continue that's true the only thing though is with the Enlightenment the idea of common notions from my understanding this is beyond my pay grade will get taken beyond how the Reformed would have understood it I think they would have put more common more stock in the idea of common notions than the Reformed were probably comfortable with but that but that idea gets taken up and tossed around by everyone it's a very ancient idea so yeah self-evident truths right we hold these to be self-evident yeah you're you're correct with that all right now before we get to conclusions and this is where we're gonna connect one more idea to the principles okay if we take the idea of common notions and the law written on the heart let's connect it to the conscience because when we're talking about the law written on the heart we're connecting that to man's conscience then we encounter the idea of something don't hate me I know this is you're like this is already too much that's okay it's called Sinterisis Sinterisis or sometimes Sinterisis all you need to know with that very simple is it's the part of man's mind where these principles are stored okay William Ames calls it the storehouse of principles it's different from conscience we'll get to conscience in a second but Sinterisis is when we're talking about God implanted these principles that's where it happens that's the storehouse of principles okay Sinterisis moving on the first part of common notions is the principles the second part is the conclusions that are deduced from those principles as man by reason applies the principles to particulars okay we say that again the first part of common notions is the principles the second part is the conclusions that are deduced from those principles as man applies them to particulars to himself or to other situations so for example in one early reform seminary textbook it explains this way it says some of these notions common notions are of a primary sort and we call them practical principles others which are secondary we call conclusions constructed from those principles with the help of reasoning we read that again some of those notions common notions are of a primary sort and we call them practical principles others which are secondary we call conclusions constructed from those principles with the help of reasoning, okay? So the first principles arise in man from the light of nature within him as he encounters the world around him.
Left in Denial: China Planning Invasion of Taiwan
"I had a dinner lunch last week with three smart people. One of whom is a foreign national two of them are Democrats. All three of whom agreed that China wasn't going to attack Taiwan. They would prefer to absorb it by osmosis and take many years and they'll just buy the island like they did Hong Kong. And I thought to myself, boy, oh boy, the left doesn't want to deal with the reality of the chai comes. How do you get through to people like this that we could wake up any morning and see an invasion? Well, let me start by paraphrasing what Churchill said at Westminster college in Fulton, Missouri, which is to say there's no doubt that the Soviet Union does not want war. They want the fruits of war and an unimpeded expansion of their power and ideological objectives. The same is true of Xi Jinping. No doubt he would prefer to absorb Taiwan via political warfare rather than actual warfare. Yet he repeatedly is telling us that he's prepared to use force if necessary to achieve his life's ambition. And what these people need to do is pay attention to what Xi Jinping says when he talks not to the Davos crowd, but when he talks to his own party membership. And on that point, he has been crystal clear that he is prepared to use force if necessary, particularly when, as I believe, will happen, he realizes that if achieving that objective, that objective of reunification of Taiwan with the mainland, can not be achieved via political warfare because the DPP is going to win the election in Taiwan in January of 2024. So if you crane has taught us anything, it is that we should listen to dictators when they tell us in plain language what they intend to do. And if we ignore that because we graphed our own western sensibilities on to Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping and we do mirror imaging, we do so at our own peril.

Uk has Big Lunch and Windsor concert following coronation Saturday
"A weekend long celebration of the coronation of King Charles the third continues with luncheons held throughout the UK and a concert at Windsor Castle. The festivities continue to support the newly crowned monarch, even as many have questioned the relevance of The Crown, and the cost of such a spectacle at a time when living costs are so high. The gilded spectacle of the king being crowned in an ancient religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey the day before takes a more down to earth turn, with picnics and street parties being planned across the UK. Events conclude with a concert featuring Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and the boy band that take that in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Charles De Ledesma, London
Prince Harry an odd man out at father's coronation spectacle
"Prince Harry was an odd man out, at his father's coronation spectacle. Harry arrived at his father's coronation alone, and he left alone, the disgruntled Duke of Sussex sat two rows behind his brother, Prince William, heir to the throne, in the pomp filled ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the isolations likely the result of quitting his royal duties, and thus no longer ranking as a senior family member or working royal. It didn't help that he alienated himself from his father and brother by airing grievances and telling palace secrets in his explosive bestselling memoir spare, Buckingham Palace had said Harry wouldn't participate in at the ceremony.

Royal Drama: King’s fractious family on stage at coronation
"As King Charles the third joins as many as 2800 guests for his coronation on May 6th at Westminster Abbey, his complicated family will once again take center stage. There's a second wife and embarrassing brother and an angry son and daughter in law all with allies who aren't shy about whispering family secrets in the ears of friendly reporters. How King Charles manages his family drama over the coming weeks and years is crucial to the king's efforts to preserve and protect the 1000 year old hereditary monarchy, editor of majesty magazine, Joe little, says Charles ongoing family drama was never going to just disappear. I think it was a nervous that when Charles became king, the loss of the personal stuff would come back to haunt him. Royal historian Robert Lacey says the standards were set too high. The British monarchy is supposed to be representative. And that used to be thought to mean it's got to be ideal. It's got to behave in an absolutely immaculate fashion. Well, that wasn't realistic and proved not to be realistic. In fact, Lacey believes Charles fractious family may be easier for the British public to identify with. But I think most people in Britain find an imperfect and honest family, easier to live with. Karen Chammas, London

There was a New York Times article comparing the MP system and the voting for the new prime minister to the primary system in the United States and how it leads to potentially the more extreme versions of parties. Because they really are just voting amongst themselves, right? And so there's a sort of question about what that does overall. And whether you get markets kind of coming in and disciplining on a broader level and changing that dynamic. I think it's kind of interesting. I just labor respond all this. They just sit in their hands. That's what we do in America. I just feel like we're getting deeper and deeper into the wind into the weeds.

That's going to be the defining political moment for the next decade. As I mentioned in America, it's the one thing everybody's on. It is, without exaggeration, the one thing Republicans are wrong.

"Well, Caroline, as you just mentioned, we can actually see a stream of the congregation who have been invited to the funeral. They've been walking past us for the last hour or so after the doors of Westminster Abbey did open, and we feel like we have spotted the BOE governor Andrew Bailey, so everyone is now filing into Westminster Abbey. And what we can expect from today is really a complete and utter spectacle, the arrival of hundreds of foreign dignitaries, presidents and prime ministers. Now this is sparked the biggest pacing and security operation London has ever seen. This is surpassing the 2012 Olympic Games and also the platinum jubilee which was just three months ago, tens of thousands of officers are on the ground, and I must say something within the last 45 minutes. There's been a huge police presence who can hear the helicopters overhead and the last minute preparations seem to be really ramping up. But the guests for today's a funeral will include the members of the royal family from across Europe, leaders from the Commonwealth, including the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, New Zealand's prime minister gel syndrome, an Australia's prime minister, other world leaders, including the U.S. president Joe Biden. Now he was seen standing silently beside her majesty's coffin in Westminster hall, he will be attending that servers the Italian German and French presidents they all in London and are due to attend that service too. But really, the forefront will be the queen's Friends, her family and employees, there will be center stage at the guest list. We do know the Queen would have had a lot of influence and today's planning. And Leanne just run us through then briefly, the choreography of events expected later today the service starts at 11 a.m., but of course this all continues until this evening. Yes, it does, it does continue to this evening so a little bit of the choreography that we can expect today, as I sit here, I'm just having a look across that Westminster hall where the queen was lying in state. So ahead of the service, she'll be escorted the coffin will be escorted on the gun carriage draped in the royal standard and it will then inter Westminster Abbey and what the dean of Westminster will lead the service will hear tributes and lessons. They'll be led by the prime minister Liz truss and the secretary general of the Commonwealth, the sermon will then be given by the Archbishop of Canterbury at the end of the service will have a two minute silence now this will be held across the whole country and the final act will see the queen's coffin moved by carriage to Wellington gate, then it will be placed in the Hearst where it will drive her to Windsor her final resting place. Thank you so much. Yes, already. You can see hundreds, if not thousands of people gathered along those routes in the hopes of seeing a sort of final glimpse both along the mall, but also the long walk ahead of Windsor Castle Liang garnes, live for us at Westminster Abbey, and we will be bringing you the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, those tributes and the events live from 11 a.m. this morning on Bloomberg radio. Yeah, so in a little under two hours time then, the state funeral, of course, of Queen Elizabeth II will take place at Westminster Abbey as we've mentioned. The nation bids work farewell to its longest serving monarch, the service will be conducted by the dean of Westminster the very reverend doctor David hoyle in the very place the queen was married and crowned. Joining us now is reverend Marjorie Brown vicar of saint Mary the virgin church primrose hill and pre Bennie of St Paul's Cathedral, reverend, thank you for joining us. You attended the platinum jubilee service at St Paul's Cathedral on the day after the queen died you were in the procession at St Paul's Cathedral for the service of reflection. What was that service of reflection like? Give us a sense of the atmosphere, the congregation, and what we might expect from today. Well, the surface of reflection had a very hushed atmosphere that you could see goal is absolutely full of the general public who queued up to enter and pay their respects on the day after the queen died. It was very different from the jubilee service just a few months earlier in June when of course the cathedral is filled with a lot of pomp and ceremony and it was a very different environment on that day, but it was a lovely occasion on the day after the queen died. We heard the address from the new king, we heard prayers and readings and beautiful music. We thank God save the king for the very first time as a type of play to lament. It was a truly moving occasion. Good morning, Marjorie, how do you think that the queen will be remembered? We know that faith was central to her life and her role as leader of the Church of England. She'll be remembered as a really remarkable person of faith and a person who put duty and service above all else. I think very much typical of her generation, that great generation of people who live through the Second World War. We know that she placed prayer at the center for her life, she spoke very freely about her faith in Jesus Christ and her Christmas broadcast, especially in the last 20 years of her life and she was a real model, I think, of faith to people around the world. And what reverend gives us a sense of what we might expect at the funeral service. We know, of course, that the queen herself was quite involved in the planning for this. The significance of the words, the music, the hymn, choices as well. Yes. Well, it's a service a Christian funeral as it would be for anyone in many respects. We know it will all be in the traditional language of the prayer book, which the queen always favored, looking through the order of service. I was very struck by how many British composers will have their music as part of the service, including two pieces by James McMillan and Judith rear, which were composed especially for this service. I was also struck by how many women will have speaking parts in the service. We have the prime minister, the secretary general of the Commonwealth, and of course the lord bishop of London, all of whom are women. That's quite a change from the last state funeral in 1952. There will also be participation by leaders of many other churches, not just Anglican, but also Roman Catholic and Pentecostal and free churches in the church of Scotland, of course. So there will be a very wide representation of people across the nation in this service today. Yes, sort of ecumenical friendship as someone put it. Reaching across to different faith groups. Marjorie also your thoughts on King Charles the third and his new role now leading the Church of England. Well, it's one he's of course been preparing for for many years, and yet I'm sure it was a shock of for him when it came upon him.

It's 8 o'clock, I'm Stephen Carroll. And I'm Caroline Hepburn. You're listening to a special edition of Bloomberg daybreak Europe where live on London DAB digital radio, and so at 8 a.m., the doors of Westminster Abbey opened to the congregation ahead of the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

We will bring you more on details of today's state funeral, but it is 8 o'clock here in London, which means it is the opening of market trading here in Europe, markets are closed in the UK for the national holiday here, but let's just bring you where markets are opening elsewhere across the continent the kakarot in Paris is down by half of 1%, the FTSE may have initially down by four tens and it will be quieter on the stock 600 index today because of the fact that there is no trading here in London, but in terms of sectors, it is personal consumer goods that we're seeing some gains at the open of trading this morning, technology shares near the bottom of the basket to end four tenths of 1% as we see shares opening largely negative and a week that will be very important for Central Bank decisions. Of course, there is no treasury trading either due to the closure of the market in London, but we are seeing Bitcoin 6% lower this morning getting its lowest level since 2020. And now to our top stories, global leaders and dignitaries are gathering in London for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, around 2000 people will attend the service at Westminster Abbey, including prince George and princess Charlotte, who will walk alongside the prince and Princess of Wales, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin welby will deliver the sermon at her majesty's funeral this morning. I feel very privileged to be there, not pleased to be there because we would all prefer that this would not happen, but we're all going to miss and grieve for the queen. It's a huge privilege to be able to take part in this, focused on the family first, because this is a family saying goodbye at a funeral to someone they loved. That was the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin welby, the funeral will mark the end of ten days of national mourning during which hundreds of thousands of people queued to see Queen Elizabeth lying in state at Westminster hall. The queen's coffin will be carried to Westminster Abbey on a 123 year old gun carriage towed by 98 Royal Navy sailors in a tradition dating back to the funeral of Queen Victoria. We are admiral to Terry as responsible for the Royal Navy's funeral planning and says it's a huge honor for all personal involved today.

Bloomberg radio, the Bloomberg business app and Bloomberg radio dot com. You do realize the mark that this is having on a younger generation. Bloomberg, the world is listening. World leaders have gotten in London for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the service at Westminster Abbey is expected to bring the city to a standstill and what will be the biggest one day policing operational in its history. Let's head out to Bloomberg's and Edward Moore. So Anna, what does the chronology look like over the coming hours? Good to see you. So you were just showing pictures there coming live from London of the lying in state of Queen Elizabeth II, and that continues for another half hour or so. Some of the people you're seeing filing past the coffin there have been waiting ten, 12, 14 hours for the chance to pay their respects to the late monarch. So the lying in state comes to an end in around half an hour's time. And then we see continuation of the pomp and ceremony that we've experienced over the last few days, we will see a procession leading from that 900 year old Westminster hall to Westminster Abbey just over the road. That the coffin during that procession will be followed by members of the royal family and we will see a service then take place at Westminster Abbey followed by another service at Windsor 25 miles or so to the west of London later on this afternoon. So shops are shot markets are closed that their attention of the nation falls on what is happening in central London and then over in Windsor later on man. I mean, as an outsider, I will say that the scale of the rituals involved have been eye opening to say the least that this is a state event who is expected to attend, who is on the guest list. Yeah, the outpouring of commitments if you like to the monarchy has been something to behold. I was going to say grief, but not everybody has been grief stricken some have been in the mood to celebrate her life as you've witnessed conversations with those in the queue there. Those in the line waiting to see that lying in state. In terms of the leaders who've been invited, I mean, pretty much anyone that the UK has diplomatic relations with. It was going to be invited. So we're not seeing, of course, Russia, Myanmar, Belarus, North Korea on the list. But aside from that, most countries were invited even if they don't end up sending a very high level delegation. And that certainly seems to be the case with China. There was some controversy over that Chinese invitation. And there has also been controversy over Saudi Arabia and whether they would attend an are the media currently reporting that that's not the case anymore that at least a Mohammed bin Salman won't attend according to media reports. So there has been that controversy over the guest list, but otherwise we've seen President Biden, of course, land in London, and he's paid tribute to the queen talking about how she was exactly as you'd expect to find her in real life as she was in reputation, if you like, and also suggesting that she reminded him of his mother, which was quite touching. We also see the emperor of Japan is here presidents from all over Europe, royal families represented from all over Europe, of course, as well. And so as you suggested, a real security as security task to behold really for the UK.

Time now to check what's going on in D.C..

The White House considering an emergency decree in case of a railroad strike, the Justice Department saying, former president Trump is undercutting himself in his Mar-a-Lago secrets argument and the Senate to wrestle with a bill that would boost U.S. ties with Taiwan. Let's bring in Bloomberg government reporter Emily Wilkins joining us from the nation's capital. Emily, so the data didn't go President Biden's way, but when it comes to this economy, it sounds like he's at least trying to stay on message. Yeah, Nathan, The White House schedule, the celebration for the inflation reduction act, remember that was that healthcare tax and climate Bill, that passed way back in August. But now that lawmakers are back in town, The White House is going to hold a celebration, really say, hey, look, we did it. But of course, on the same day that they're passing a bill with the name, the inflation reduction act inflation for the previous month was reported to be higher than it was expected, consumer prices increased to all by .1% for inflation increased by .6%. I mean, Biden did note that these aren't exactly giant numbers. He said he wasn't worried. He was only a tenth of a percent. But Nathan inflation continues to be the issue that is really defining these midterms. There are a couple other ones, but if you talk with folks, the economy just continually comes up as a big thing that they are concerned about. And this is really showing that for Democrats, it's not like inflation is suddenly going to go down ahead of November. There are probably going to have to deal with high inflation as they go into the election and even though they tried to name this bill inflation reduction. This isn't something that Americans are seeing. And even if this bill does reduce its inflation, it's not going to happen quickly within the next few weeks. And now we're seeing this threat of a nationwide railroad strike causing the potential if it happens to add to price pressures even further. What's The White House doing about that? So The White House is beginning to prepare for a potential use of emergency powers to ensure that critical materials that these railways usually transport can still be delivered, even if there's a strike. They think things like chlorine that are neither for wastewater treatment plants, something that if they don't get it, they're not going to be able to put out water that we can all drink So there's a lot of really critical materials here. Also, this goes back to the inflation thing. If certain materials can't get out, can't get delivered, that's going to lower the supply and Jack up prices.

And as we begin this ten days of morning and our commitment to London here with Bloomberg surveillance, it is good to speak to the editor in chief of Bloomberg, John micklethwaite, and what is important here is his commitment to the literature with Adrienne wildridge and the number of books that they have put out over the years. I want to go to what if John, because we do not know the schedule forward, there is in the first time I walked into it, I fell apart Westminster hall, not Westminster Abbey, but this small hall, right next to it, that one person on a night in 1941 said we need to save Westminster hall, let the commons burn, and there has to be some heritage there, some symbolism as you mourn your queen. I think what's it's a whole auto was the place as I remember it. I may have got this wrong but I think Charles I went to shortly before he was executed and there have been countless other people. So it is actually very related to the monarchy and to British history. And so it's right at the middle things. I do think actually strangely, in this case, I think there is something very your sense of history Tom is correct is that there is something at this precise moment that there is sort of historical about this. And there's also a sense of the monarchy from an earlier age. If you look at the inheritance from Charles point of view, he is coming into a kingdom that is in danger of breaking up. He is coming into a kingdom that has got poor relations with its ancestral other half in France and Germany and things like that. And he's also got a sort of brand new Chancellor if he wanted. But the old terms in his trust. So it's a not easy inheritance. And I think in terms of history, from the monarchy's point of view, this is an unusually difficult time, notwithstanding the huge amount of coming together that is happening at the moment. John, how do you expect that he is going to reposition this monarchy? In a world that you describe. I think it's a mixture between trying to keep the inherent strength that his mother had, which was the ability to bring people together. You and I are just talking before, you could become wildly different backgrounds in this country. You could come from wildly different races, genders, everything. And people saw this woman as a center of what this country was about, and in terms of international influence, she was she was about as strong as soft power can get. Everybody, you met around the world, doesn't matter even talking to rulers in Asia, last couple of weeks ago. They are still fascinated by this woman who is after all met everybody, or did meet everybody. And so as a kind of weapon of soft power, she was extraordinary. Now you have a new person coming in, and I think for Charles, the sort of challenges, possibly to step back a little bit in terms of his advocacy. He's no longer the heir to the throne he is actually the he now is the person at the middle of the English constitution He selects who the prime minister can be. That means you have to perhaps come a slightly more objective figure. But the second thing is, how do you update the monarchy quietly? Without losing that sense of power. When you talk about updating the monarchy, one thing that Queen Elizabeth, the second did, was it became an icon of culture. She became as one historian said, she is Tower Bridge and a red double decker bus on two legs, not to mention Big Ben afternoon tea, village bets and sheep flecked hills.

She has power locks Power button. The passenger side door doesn't open or walk. Is that some type of just contact issue or is that a motor or It's called an actuator. You have an actuator in each door for your locks, and it's something that happens. Occasionally, all brands that have electric power doors had this problem once in a while and that actuator has gone bad. So not the easiest to replace because door panels could be very, very tough to get on and off without damaging them. But door panel has to be removed. The actuator is sitting right there. And then you just need to get it, get it out of there and get the new one in so 99% of the time, if all three doors or two doors whatever the case may be, how many car doors you have? If the other one's working one dozen? It's 99% of the time, the actuator And then they just take their turn all the way around the other other three doors to they can they can, But it's not a common thing that you see the only car that I remember that had that problem that every single door would do that. Was the eighties Nissan Maximus. For some reason, they had door actuator problems, and you could do a driver side and then three months later, they come back in the passenger side. And then three months later, they do the driver's side rear door. And then four months later, I mean, it drove people crazy, but that was the mid eighties maximum had that problem, but most cars If you haven't actuator problem in a car it generally at the most. Maybe two out of the four will have that problem for as long as your own the car most time. Just the one Is that a small part is a zafar is cost with the Honda parts could be anywhere from $75 to about $200 per actuator. And that most like to intellectual count, I imagine. Yes, it does.

Bye bye now. Larry is in Westminster. Hey, Larry, how you doing? Good morning days. Good morning. I have? Well, actually, it's a friend has a 2008 vic. Uh huh. And he took it in for old change, and he needed a starter, he said so anyway. Had 130,000 miles on it. Okay. After he got the old changed and the starter put on, he noticed all the sudden it had 230,000 miles on it. What in the world would cause I it Probably. What's happened is somebody may have hit that over two kilometers instead of miles. I'm there's no other way that can be done. The dealership can't even change knowledge on cars unless they replace the whole odometer on do it with a new one. So I don't think that's the case, but it may have been accidentally switched over. Two kilometers, so I would check that first when you read the mileage and also the speedometer gonna have to check and see if it says kilometers instead of miles. That's my only guess There's no there's no other reason for that to happen. They go from 1 30 to 230. So that would be my only guest right there. Okay, I'll check it out for him. All right. You got to check to see if it says kilometers anywhere and then on the dash. That's where you could make the adjustment between kilometers and Odometer that that way these cars were set for all areas of the world. They don't have to be redesigned for Canada or other areas of the world that use kilometers, so they have it so you could do that, But that's what I think happened on this. I think you get accidentally turned over two kilometers, so there's a button on the dash. Yes..
