"In early march twenty twenty. I was on a plane on my way from boston. to corpus. christi. Texas selena's hometown. It was the early days of twenty twenty the before the country was still flying. People were still out in the street. I'd gone dancing the night before albeit a hand sanitizer on every ten minutes so i was tired on the plane but i couldn't sleep. I was ansi. My stomach was in knots and it wasn't just because of the impending pandemic. I was on my way to a month long reporting trip in texas interviewing scholars fans and all kinds of people for this podcast. Accept this podcast. Of course didn't exist yet and that's because the whole theme hinged on the first leg of this trip this is when i hope to meet with abraham gained nia salinas fall who's notoriously protective of her image and music. I'd hope to land an interview with him and also ask him to let us license some of selena's songs for the podcast. My is thinking was no music rights. No podcast before this plane right to texas. Our producers have been working on securing those music rights for a few months. We'd had to wrangle all these parties songwriters record labels small publishers and convinced them that the project was worthy of selena's music. But i knew that the final deciding yes or no would come from. Selena's family manage to reach selena's father abraham on the phone a couple of times before he wasn't really interested in interviews said too many reporters had asked him to many foolish questions. I told him. Oh this podcast. It's an oh to selena. It's rooted in love. I wanna show her legacies true impact and he was like everyone wants to do that when he heard disappointment in my voice. He told me not to feel bad. He rejected journalists every day. Meanwhile i heard from the record label. They said selena's family would not approve our request to license her music. I tried reaching abraham again. I emailed him left two messages. Nothing so back on the plane. I wondered how things would go down. Abraham knew when i'd be in corpus christi but he'd stopped short of setting an official meeting with me either way. I felt like i had to at least try to talk to him. But i felt this apprehension. This like skittish feeling. I've been a journalist for fifteen years. I've met plenty of people who make me nervous but this fell like there was so much more at stake yes to some degree because of the music rights to some degree because of his famous temper but really it was because abraham felt like such a big part of selena's story a foundational part. He wasn't just her father. He was her manager. Her mentor and selena. Talked about him all the time. My influences were. I would say oh my father. My father used to have a ban the way back. When and i guess it's where we get the musical talent brahmin and i don't really remember seeing or hearing about salina's mom allah growing up. But i remember knowing. About abraham. I was eleven.

Himself telling Abraham about the star co Lob which is near his home. which governs all other celestial bodies and WHO's year is one thousand years on earth. We. Into Cola is a great song about it talked about in other episodes. We talked about the song episode eighteen and then Coladas a as a concept and episode thirty two. Yeah it's wonderful. Abraham is told that all beings us included you and me are eternal and existed with God before creation and will exist for eternity. There is a plurality of gods many gods who did not so much create the Earth but organized it out of existing materials and then did the same with Adam and Eve. The rest of the rest of the book is a recounting of the acts of creation with painstaking to describe them many gods that participated. I can't tell you how many times it says and the many gods went and the and the gods meaning many gods it's like okay. Yeah Adam and Eve with sweared. Adam and Eve recreated together, and then again separately with the gods pulling a rib from Adam, to make you've just like in Genesis. It ends with Adam. Naming every creature brought forth before him. The translation was then forever interrupted by several bullets in Carthage. Illinois resulting in Joseph Death in eighteen, forty four which covered in episode ninety six. The book is grandiose heretical and give way too many of them of the Mormon. Church's believes that to this day lead many Christian denominations to claim that Mormons are not true Christians. Here's the thing though it is all bullshit. Not just in the sense that most religious texts, rheumatology allegories are exaggerations. But in the fact that what this book is based on exists and spoiler alert it does not say what Joseph said it did. Yeah. Right. Before we get into that there is one more coincidence that Mormons really wish didn't happen. After the turmoil turmoil of the succession crisis in the wake of Joseph's assassination. The church, split and most of. Church. Split with most of Joseph's family and therefore the mummies and the papyrus remaining. Inaba with. With Emma. Right, three of the higher is's hardware say were copied down and these copies did make it out west with the Brigham Might Church, and we'll talk about those in a minute. After Emma's death, her new husband sold the collection and it found its way to the Chicago Museum where they were destroyed in a fire in eighteen sixty three. Or were they. Shut down the mummies were lost to history but several fragments of the papyrus actually not burned and by an incredible chain of possession too complicated to cover today they found that away to the New York Metropolitan Museum of art and in Nineteen Sixty six and Egyptologists teaching at the University of Utah Dr Ezeiza saw them and realize what they were. Now Mark I think you might have something to say about doctorate pretty crazy I actually because of family connection I actually became very close to the deductor Attiyah and his wife. And As a young man and I mow mow their lawn and shovel their walk and a made me dinner and taught me some basic Arabic they were unbelievably lovely. Wonderful people. Lovely. Lovely. Yeah. Crazy. Lovely. But then there were very exotic to me because they were. Super Fascinating But anyway he I if I'm correct he brought the papyrus from the Museum of new. York.

"Hint. Okay. That founder that I was talking about. His name is Bob. Oh sorry. The founder's name is the Bob Spelled B. A. B. which is Arabic for the gate and the successors name is Ola. which is Arabic for the key master just kidding. The region, the religion was founded in. Persia is a radical offshoot of Islam and called Behi-. ooh Oh. See I was so stuck on on the local headstone I'm like. Yeah. This Mormon offshoot of some kind, right? Yeah and then I found out it wasn't. I tricked you. You did drove me. What's funny is that this that headstone is is just a standalone headstone and it's not for a person it's it's in the Mount Olive cemetery and it just says. Hi It's just. Look. We exist we're the by is, is that hello and goodbye at the same time? Yes, it's like. Aloha ve Shalom. It's yeah exactly. Traditionally, you would say, hi, how you doing? So that was obviously a broad strokes. Look at the history. Let me just fill in a few of the gaps the BOB BE A. B or however you write it in Arabic. Was Born in Persia in eighteen nineteen. He began his occurs medic leader journey in his early twenties and was executed at age thirty, but for such a short life. He had a pretty big impact and he was prolific. Now according to him, he claims to he claimed to have written over five hundred, thousand verses of text. Take, for context, the Koran is under seven thousand. Wow. unfortunately. I want to belong to a religion with more rules than. FUCKING I didn't say a lot I said text. Okay. So. And there's some importance there unfortunately for the Bob Ists, most of his writings seem to have been lost. His writings started as interpretations of the Koran and Hud Eighth. But as he progressed, he moved more toward expounding on the metaphysical and philosophical. There is some dispute about what the Bob said just like with Joseph Smith and the various offshoots after he died the Behi- aren't the only people to claim lineage from the Bob. There are Baba's who went in another direction, but they don't have the numbers that the by behalf so they lose it history. Are they are they below? Yes. Yes. The is this on. Their the boy. Howdy. Anyway, the story is that the Bob said that every now and then an important, an important person came along to give the world the spiritual teachings that it needs for that time. Jesus the Buddha Krishna. Muhammed Abraham. These were all prophets of God who gave necessary messages for their time. He taught that a new guy was coming get ready. then. He taught that he was that guy but the behind just ignore that part and move onto. La. So Thank God I thought you were going to talk about Abraham again, and I've had just about enough of that guy. I know. You believe me there's You joke. But you're the one that's going to torture us with So let everybody do gird your loins digging. For the last little bit. And technically, the only I've got is that this is if we're going to be technical. Abraham religion of sorts Sure. Anyway if it's if it's a Muslim offshoot, right right? Yeah. So. Baha was a contemporary and follower of the Bob. He was actually a couple years older than the BOB was. Even though there were over twenty dudes, the proclaimed themselves to be the profit or divine physician that the Bob had.

"We see every day in American Christians. Comes from the book that they model their entire lives off of. Are we seeing ghastly -bronze-age mores turbocharged by hundred technology. The Bible is absolutely dripping with violence cruelty, emotional malfunction and hatred. Can we be surprised if the people who declared the guiding force in their lives may often drip with violence cruelty emotional dysfunction. The morals of the stories are all bad and damaging but so is everything in between. It's a thousand pages of inverted moral fables supported by endless passages of a completely dismal unenlightened worldview. Based on the value of human life. So, how can we expect people to think that it's who think that it's God's inspired word to behave in a more enlightened pluralistic unless callous way So that's what kind of struck me is just how Callous People Christians behave towards other people just generally. So that's I think Abraham and Isaac is an excellent vehicle for that conversation. I think. You're absolutely right. It's particularly in this case because. It's it's a foundational myth. Yeah and anything that is any hesitation or or regret in the mind of Abraham or fear or psychological damage in the mind of Isaac Ain't in the TAT doesn't even if it doesn't even rate mentioning. No right right and so did the apologists tried to say well, Abraham prayed and he pled about no, it doesn't say that anywhere he didn't hesitate. He didn't fucking hesitate and that's why he's a righteous man. Well, the thing is that the Bible in order to to extract the good holy messages from it requires revision. Yeah. Like you have to add to end or subtract from and or you know expurgate. In order to get anything good out of it you have to. You have to be some. PhD. In. Hebrew. Language. To be able to say. This word meant that word. Let's look all I've got is what's written in front of me right right I I don't have time to stay study ancient Hebrew and read all the other texts that have something this your standard issues Christian is not going to go get a degree in the classics right also the guys that have the degree in the classics, the guys that can read all of the Greek, the Aramaic, the Hebrew. Have gone through it and guess what they're explanations are zero percent more satisfying. No than just reading it Yep. It's just confusion and you know when you actually like slog through all of the different well, this is a misinterpretation of this word and this word actually probably meant this and that and the other. Okay it's still a shitty story and it just pushes it closer to total narrative meaninglessness right now if you need if the inherent word of God needs. The support of thirty five. And thousands of pages of explanatory materials that it's flawed might be. It might be air. Did you did I have you guys ever read the book by Chris? Matheson the story of God. I I, listen to on audio. Yeah. It's. It's a lot of fun if it went to anyone hasn't done it it's well worth your time. He basically just takes the character of God as he as he is introduced and. Does or says things throughout the Bible and gives those sets of pronouncements and actions character yeah. And it's not a good one obviously, but and so he takes the story of Isaac and and. Abraham Isaac and he's not the first one to do this, but it doesn't quite well that. God didn't think. Abraham. Would do it..

"Isn't that wonderful? Yeah. That's wonderful. I, mean Great Job Abraham for passing this horrible test with others but right you failed the test of basic humanity and fatherhood like really badly. Like any any other, any other moral teacher would be like, no, you fail. The trolley problem you fucked this completely up. And my favorite apologetic. Abraham Abraham had to learn about temptation and how to avoid it. What? Temptation is offering somebody something. They really really want in order to corrupt them. So. This obviously. That for thirty seven years. Abraham really wanted to kill the shit out of Isaac. and. He just needed a random voice to lose his dagger temptation fuck off with that so. Every inch of this story is terrifyingly cruel. There is nothing redeeming or useful about it. Even the minor characters are slaves. But right it's a here we are with the majority of the people who surround us all all on a day based on a daily basis. Thinking this is wonderful. We've explored around Fifty Biblical stories or parables here on the heretic mining for meaning and morality and coming up with an empty bucket. Whether, it's job the Good Shepherd David and Bethsheba the Ark of the Covenant Alishan the bears one single word of Leviticus. Filomena Zeki Exodus or revelation. It's all horrible and almost without exception the moral of the narrative. Is the direct opposite of the moral we were taught. They contain by people were either lying to us or perpetuating older lies on aware. There are not a there are not an insignificant number of conversations in the Bible between slaves and people who own them. In dance story a couple of weeks ago about David's terrible kids Amnon Absalom. One of them rapes his sister and the other one tells her to fuck off about it. That's it. That's the whole moral. And, sure, there's the golden rule in the sermon on the Mount. But for everyone of those gyms, there's a hundred slayings of Canaanites and the latest crimes of King David. Everybody loves to talk about what a sweet do Jesus was. But. They may be forgetting Luke nineteen seven where he said. But those might enemies which would not that I should reign over them, bring them hither and slay them before me. Or how about his call to abandon everybody in Luke Fourteen twenty six, which is a real. A real charmer if any man come to me and hate not his father and mother and wife and children and brethren, ancestors gay and his own life, also, he cannot be my disciple. Or, this Chrysler. Tidbit in love in Matthew. Five. Twenty nine..

"When when does that happen? Any Day now. So here's what happens in this fucking story a man who has recently evicted his lover and young son into the desert with one bottle of water to die of thurston exposure. Here's a voice that is not his tell him to slice the throat of and burn the warm body of his thirty seven year old son. He asked no questions makes no plea just gets the fuck up the next day tells Isaac and a couple of slaves to get the donkey they're going on a hike. He Chops. The amount of would he reckons it will take to reduce his beloved son's body to ash and off they go. When they get to the mountain he tells the slaves to stay with the donkey and they'll be right back. He expresses more concern for the well-being of the donkey and the story then for his. then. He essentially lies to Isaac makes him carry the would for his own fucking funeral pyre up the mountain himself? lies to him again when he asked the lamb is then ties his own child up and prepares without hesitation to cut his throat and let him bleed out all kosher like. I wonder if the bottle of water Abraham said Hagar is male off to die with was actually his slightly chipped world's Greatest Dad Mug. Anyway then in the nick of time, the voice tells them to stop so he does. They see Aram in the weeds and kill him instead Huzzah. Much morals. So hero, let's let's make this story the cornerstone of morality forever. Never you guys. Yeah let us teach this story to our children to let them know that if a voice tells us to, we'll cut their fucking throats and burn their bodies on a mountainside. I mean what? The actual fuck with this bullshit. A man I go can I just say I love the idea that the actual only possible good moral that could come from this is. But he didn't kill him. Yeah. Right. Right. Like that's as good as it gets and it's still shit and he gets credit for like. The credit. More credit than Abraham for anything. So anyway. A man that abandoned a woman child to die already are already nearly kills his adult son after lying to him and making carry the would for his own cremation is the good guy in this story and indeed one of the definitive good guys to billions of people worldwide. Yeah He. had. A he he might be the most revered man. In the weather than Jesus or Mohammed like right I butt Muhammad. Islam Judaism and Christianity. All reveres Abraham Abraham more. So than in case they do Moses. Because Abraham is the father of all three is religion. Yeah, right it's insane. So now, apologists have dressed this up more than a fucking Christmas, tree with reasons and excuses that are simply not there. You see all you see they say this was to shock the Israelites out of ever participating in child sacrifice again. That's bullshit. Abraham was down to clown with infanticide didn't even totally didn't even. PAS. Oh? No, you see. They say. That, this is crazy. This was a foreshadowing of the life and tribulations of Jesus of. Shut up it's not the authors of Genesis and the authors of the Gospels the two thousand years apart. Absurd. You see they say this is a test of faith..

"Sometime later, God tested Abraham, he said to him Abraham. Here I am he replied. Then God said take it's just one word, Abraham. Move then God said, take your son Your only son Whom you love FYI is. And go to the region of Mariah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on amount and I will show you. Early the next morning Abraham got up loaded his donkey he took with him two of his servants that means slaves and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. On, the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance he said to his servants stay here with the donkey while I in the boy over there. Why is that important? We will worship and then we will come back to. Abraham took the would for the burnt offering and placed on his son Isaac and he himself carried the fire and the knife that's equitable as the two of them went together Isaac spoke up and said after his father. said to his father Abraham. Father. Yes my son Abraham replied. The fire would are here Isaac said but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? Abraham answered God. Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son. And the two of them went on together. When they reached the place got told him about Abraham built an altar there and arranged the would on it he bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar on top of the would. Then he reached out his hand. And just sorry there seems to be just one little lake the just and then he bound his son there was like come here you. Know none none at all so Then he reached out his hand. Well, it does seem like it seems like Isaac might have been a bit of a credulous kid. Hey, what are you doing now?.

"In jesus naming pray man. Our faith word of the day explains what abraham did for the people of sodom. He asked god to spare them if he could even find just ten righteous. Men abraham interceded for the city which means to speak on behalf of someone else for an example in our churches when a pastor and people pray for the world we are interceding for them. Speaking to god especially on behalf of those who cannot or do not speak to him. Like abraham did yes he spoke to the lord both for the righteous who lived inside them but he also spoke for the unrighteous people. They're begging the lord not to destroy them but instead to give them more time to repent and believe there are many people in our lives whom we know that we can bring before our father in heaven and pray for them. Also that our lord would shine his mercy and grace and love upon them to so that they may turn from sin and believe in jesus and isn't that what jesus does for us in heaven. He intercedes for us to god and he did that. First and foremost on the cross so our faith at the day is intercede something that you yourselves can do as you pray for.

"Usually when we hear the events of sodom and gomorrah. It's a message of judgment. Or fire and brimstone of wrath and anger of ninja. Angels like that on the bible. Tv show way. What do you mean usually except for that. Ninja angels part. But that's exactly what we think of when we hear of sodom and gomorrah god destroying them for unrighteousness and corruption. Just like the time of the flood. I know but i think this a rather interesting more positive message in our story today that we can focus on. I mean wouldn't it be better to remember the faithfulness of the lord his patients with centers and his desire to save rather than destroy go. Then you talking about interceding. Abraham exactly and our young guests are with us right now for us to talk about what happened before the cities of sodom and gomorrah were away. I don't wanna give away the ending so high kids. I know as a quick reminder. During the lord's visit with abraham and sarah for you guys when he told them that isaac will be born within a year the lord also reveals abraham something he is about to do and unless that there were some cities that were in newer abraham lived at a time. Two of them were called sodom and gomorrah and god tells abraham that he's about to destroy these two cities for their great wickedness. Now do you live near family. Kids like grandparents or aunts and uncles and cousins. I do I have lots of neighbors. You have lots of neighbors. What about your grandparents. Grandpa lives nearby. It takes a long time to get to the first one. Okay and you don't have family nearby do you. Well abraham's nephew lot actually lives in sodom with his family. And abraham knows how the people of those cities are faithless wicked and evil. They did not listen to god or obey him they pretty much did whatever they thought was right in their own is like when the children don't listen to their parents or or one adults do bad things yet but even worse sodom and gomorrah were not good places for god's people to live in god himself so as abraham walks with the lord. He starts praying. Do you guys know what praying is. Yeah what is praying. Talking to god's through By both it is talking to god through words. And what do you usually do when you pray. Play to d we fold our hands. We closure is so. How is abraham praying. When he's talking to god like you said is in praying when we fold our hands. Bow our heads and close our eyes and talk to god. Yes we do to help us concentrate. We pray but brain really is simply talking to god's words and thoughts the way we're him knows that the lord is planning on destroying him he also knows the lord is faithful to his promises. He is the lord of life merciful and gracious slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. So abraham wonders if there are believers in sodom and gomorrah will god destroy them along with the wicked. What do you think. Do you think god would destroy the righteous now. Know that doesn't seem like something god would do. Remember noah no one watches on the face of the earth. Except noah and his family and god saved him eight souls. all abraham wonders the same. Here it sounds as if abraham's bargaining with god doesn't it. Do you ever try to do that with your parents. Get them to agree to do something for you. You don't what about when. Maybe maybe you should consult with their parents. You mean to tell me you haven't bargained to watch a movie okay. That's what i thought. But keep in mind. Abraham is praying to the lord knowing the lord loves his people so he asks what if there are fifty righteous people. Far be it from you. Oh lord to sweep away. The righteous with the wicked did abraham know and trust the goodness of the lord. So the lord responded for the sake of fifty. I will not destroy it fifty people. That's not a lot. Surely fifty could be found. Don't you think yeah fifty in one city. No maybe an as city but not this particular city. Could they fifty no. they couldn't. y'all think abraham knew. That wouldn't be possible that's why he very very very humbly asks again. Abraham keeps asking god about how many righteous people he might find to save the city's forty five maybe than forty then thirty then twenty and eighteen eighteen but but then ten and the lord responded every time for the sake of the righteous for the sake of ten in that city. I will not destroy it so after our bible reading i remember one of you said i'm not really sure what that reading was about. Do have a little bit better idea about what happened. Abraham i do. Yeah abraham was praying to god for those ten righteous people. He was trying so hard to save the city. And so what. Courage abraham had as he walked by face and what mercy and grace of god to hear abraham and listened to him and now the search for ten righteous people in sodom and gomorrah takes place and we will find out if god finds those ten people next week. Let's close with prayer. And this week pastor glaze. Can you lead us. Sure let's pray. Dear heavenly father had any farther. Thank you for listening to our prayers. Thank you for listening to our players and always acting as acting. According to.

"It wasn't like oh he's going to provide a lamb's of the abraham just hesitated no in his mind offering was to be done and it was done already as we see verse ten when abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son now as we know the angels stopped him at this point he looks up and lo and behold a ram is in the fence ready to be sacrificed so faith was displayed in obedience abraham believe god and it was counted as righteousness to him he believe that isaac was the means by which god's promise was to be fulfilled given that isaac was likely in his late teens too late 20s it'd be auditing that god would have another child born so late and abraham's life of course it was already said explicitly that isaac would be the one now think about hebrews eleven for a second air and it provides information on what was happening and abraham's mind in verse nineteen of he was levin we read he considered that god was able even to raise him from the dead from which figuratively speaking he did receive him back of course here's an the foreshadowing of christ in his resurrection but it is interesting that no resurrection had occurred at this point in time yet the word considered denotes serious calculation he reasoned in his faith it wasn't necessarily blind your wasn't blind the he took while he knew of god and concluded that god can raisin back from the dead not only this but he believed the problems as well he took when he knew of god he took god's word he put them together any acted in that now we see that he reason through his knowledge of who got was and believed in god's word and acted and we see the kind of lax we don't see that reasoning anymore and this always kind this blind hope blind faith but we don't have to add that because we can no who got is in knowing who god is leads us into a secure faith i guess you could say.
