The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. Why is thought a lot more. Why an adult would you recall if I will launch wide open 8772077X window.

Let's leave so this contributes to something about starting my tried to finish my second novel in the series so far the influence and other people been asked me for your to do that and think about it more seriously now it's one thing I discussion today with some atheists and tell you when we discuss things with atheists you find Dr. up strippers difficult to follow accuse you of all kinds of stuff are disingenuous. In my opinion, in their approach to logic and a double standard is really bad however little bit of a shining light had an encounter with an atheist. Today was very polite and when I made a logical point incentive all atheist to say no it's not true and you know, focus, troll commodities, because one move on literally breath of fresh air, still an atheist, you know, but it was nice so this are obstreperous individuals and that's okay so have fun. There in the let's see you tonight patron video I'm going through a series on patriot on patron Matt slick on the nature of God or electric now a bit apologetic about an outline. I have apologetics been working on this for quite a while and let's see, it is my outline is 68 pages of material that's what I've been doing is going through this stuff slowly. The thought methodically, athletically, so the.

The topics are always related from week to week, but doing so don't participate in next go to Petrie

Check it out and let's see what else what else or something else.

You know sometimes is trouble remembering that's okay.

Oh, I write you another spill something thought to have a little discussion/debate on this is a Saturday, 3 PM Eastern time with a guy who is Unitarian and Unitarianism that is only one person in the Godhead last night. I think what's a Batman.

I really liked Prestwick. But before that I was talking to some people actually forgot to say you know your 65 it happens. No big deal. He was even call 877-207-2276 nobody waiting right now want to hear from you if your new be listing the show tonight.

She was going on. I'm a Christian apologist. My real name, last name is slick and stricter radio Matt slick life. So if you want to give me call the question on let's see Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian science unity behind Islam follows Catholicism. Let's see Christian doctrine, theology, and all kinds of stuff and talk about love doing that.

It's a real privilege to be able to do that all right now. Okay sweetie I think it would happen in the world right now. See, I've been following a lot of different sources of information and I'm getting a little concerned because it looks like maybe some of you know things you can help me out with this.

It looks like there are some troops being moved from my phone dollars forgot to do this troops are being moved inside from the states over to that area that having conflict and are being moved away from Afghanistan and other people are generically other nations are starting to move equipment and troops towards Ukraine and so that's really concerning because that's those of the makings of a serious war and that brings me to the issue of the what's happening with our supply chain and so you know why I recommend people prepare for shortages and things like go to the storage you know that's there. The reason I bring up is to live because you know we do everything here on the radio. We are natural cut question we talk about this kind stuff as well. And so the Bible does say to store up food for the lean times very biblical to do and so I don't recommend hoarding and panicking, but as fathers if you had a house but as fathers were were called to to prepare. You can do that is a lot of information out there out there and 11 how to do that so that you can get stuff done things like that to be prepared. So this generic stuff you want talk with you recall can do that.

But nevertheless, let's get to James from Colorado. James welcome. Thank you for taking my call on nine for a while work/study and more and I came across the teachings that were kind foreign to me. I never really looked into it. Shame on me, but reading genetic characteristics about God. I was wondering what your take on that and all the Tower of Babel. You into the thunder God and I and obviously the fall of man.

Chapter 3 Genesis chapter 3 chapter 11.

I'm sorry I go through different stuff.

Maybe chapter 10 or chapter 11 agenda for the talks about things like just to give you summary what is getting at is that God is allowed each started dealing with Abraham while I that he gave the authority if you want to use that word on that's proper over the other parts of the world like the Gentile world and that only Israel will be God's portion God: Solano sure what we are getting a crisp talk about different things different chapters of Seattle start which that's all right with what you will question though most the most what I'm trying to get the length of God in Genesis chapter 6. Do you think those are human beings are the angels. Are they something out for the other spiritual created being. For example, the work dealing the meat question like that that money okay so the issue here. Genesis heterosexual who's the sons of God says in verse one came about one minute begin to multiply in the face of the land and daughters were born to them that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and took themselves wives so the Jews and the Christians always taught that the sons of God. There were fallen angels that they came and had relations with women to produce offspring, and the flame okay Rex that's right whole 10 AM that's what you'll do when with the youth see the word you are example. Do you and the Bible concern only God you know God father God. Now the Trinity, but it that way it won't now. Or did you looking can be used in other cases, in effect, other God and at the end and Elohim means in different contexts and its use of the single God is using false God's use of of unrighteous judges that still exist through this. It has was called the semantic domain.

A variety of meanings in different contexts, so can't say what is it mean well, it means different things in context and so they want to look at it and try to think of. I think it sounds chapter 882. Six and God think that other thing we talked about the I should have looked at the port called talks about the God you know are God now treated father-son Holy Spirit writer and he chastises the other sons of God to give me references look at that to see because a lot of people remember is not really what the Bible is saying unless is the case here, but I would like to verify the look yeah okay and I just stumbled across few actually without doing it. I think the you you know Bob Arkwright what what you would know Bob in the art right now know you don't like thing that you guys are never alone.

Anyway I like. I don't remember your role people's names and on so I forget names and numbers spiked African peoples names that happens so were supposed to he necklace evident a discussion debate is that it will you ducky and you were to have a debate in December but didn't say what year I will deftly and I had a discussion, debate years ago I flew out on the network discussion and am will Duffy help and bless us again. The gentleman on aching about his name is Michael. I think it has nice Eisner Heiser yeah and the yes and the unseen realm of the and I was all kind of coming okay to it, so that's what I'm getting. Okay, let me tell you what the biblical position is Michael Heiser and others are making some other areas. The biblical position is only one God and all existence all place in all time verify this in Isaiah 43, 44, 45, three chapters. It clearly teaches you go through you read that there's lot references in their know got credit for noncredit effort doesn't even know when you got the word Elohim is used. It's already two of them a false false individuals false teachers have power of life and death in center called gods and things like this. So the word has was called the semantic domain and range of meaning in different contexts. That's all that's going on. Some people have said the Council of the gods loaded now is a real counsel will have to be a counsel of God's if God says there aren't any other gods. He says very very clearly says as he entered God beside me. I know of none.

And God is very clearly saying this to what you doing in those other places, is he saying of all the gods that are there. He's the true God and of the Jewish Woodmont would understand what he was saying. There are many that are called God is Isaiah's is some Galatians 46 through eight. I believe it is, says the mentor called other, not by nature got worse that not by nature God ends up as a part of the text, but a lot of times the court there are references to other God with her not true gods and so the Bible talking about them and things like that. That's always going on there. Okay yeah and on the thing that you would say that they are actual dirt.

They're not in it. Then what he saying that they're not actual fallen angel or not but they're just because they're being created universe. Hold on to partially because we have philological 77577077 all right with the question formulated it with on 82. What was right.

You want to read it, for which a question about divine counsel in the myth of the God evil judgment. Now he holds judgment in the myth of God and if you question you got. I'm very there with this question will try to get at it.

I know you said Isaiah 45 there's only one God and I believe that obviously you know Jesus is God need only one in obviously trying to I got the literature question that you will gain is the word for not just for Yahweh but it that way but that actually get the generic at the category in it like a human being at the Academy. What is your cost and I keep asking you for a question it's trying to teach on my radio show so I'm just I'm not who I need to have question okay the question is on 82 verse one. What did he mean by the God he holds judgment okay the answer is simple. Read the contents God takes stands on congregation judges in the midst of the so to speak, gods or the rulers could be if I understood how long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked, so it's an imprecatory song and imprecatory Psalm means that God of the psalmist is wishing harm upon someone to yes I think God got him. He goes on here vindicate the weak rescue the needy etc. they do not know understand they walk about in darkness all the foundation of the earth are shaken.

I said your God zero sons of the most high. Nevertheless, you will die like men and fall like anyone. The princes arise. Oh God judge the earth is the context as this is written to the unrighteous judges of Israel when there was no king were judges and they were unrighteous there referenced politically, as this is a poetry politically is God's lease has never left you to die like men gods don't die right so that's what's going on there. Just took it's an imprecatory Psalm against the unrighteous judges of Israel. That's what that is.

So the Giants weren't mentally when you stand what I said… On page 2's focus is okay yeah I believe that now that's a different topic when you go back to Genesis chapter 6 when it with a giant mentally. Yes, that's correct. They were there were large and in possible that they survived after the what entity it so it not after the flood, but now they come back and were all destroyed by the flood, and most probably would have is the procedures to get them there continued after the flood yeah to the semantic content is wonder how your ticket yet more questions you write when you said Matthew chapter 16, and upon this rock I will build my church.

You think you literally meet himself obviously that'll think of Peter I was yes cotton bread related heat the rock you get the actual mountain that he thought that Premium more okay delete so working her is Petross in the Greek word rock is Petroff Petross means is all rock and Petroff means a large mass and so it's as you are Peter.

The small rocket upon the large humongous rock I will build my church is is what's going on and that word Petroff, which is rock is in the feminine word Petross is in the masculine in the Greek you are.

Petross is masculine, but upon this rock feminine of the lecture of the word rock there. The feminine is used in reference to Jesus enforcement teams 10 for when it says the rocket followed them in the wilderness was Jesus was Christ. So it's what it's doing would Jesus is doing this and that Peter is in the rock that can be built upon. But he's using a different is just upon any signal beyond this rock your Peter, and on this rock I will build my church is a on you on this rock. It's like saying you are the actor and upon the actress will build my church. That's the kind of a thing that's capping the gender not exact was not Peter Catholics make this mistake. It's Matthew 1618, okay, yeah, right. What do you think Christ is the rock that he church that has recurrent yes in Greek towns have a general or neutrality masculine, feminine and neuter, and when rock when different words have different media different context. That's what's going on and the seven and four visibly that Jesus is feminine with the idea of a large mass of rock is a feminine gender. That's all it is rock doesn't have gender but in that language is his use of the gender sentence and it says that rock that huge thing is Jesus because that's what it says Jesus is a prescriptive stand 124 okay Eric that you bless all right this good today from North Carolina. They welcoming on the air. I doing fine how are you doing right about and witnessed there believe in one God, he does not believe in the God rated Albert with Alec Trinity you… When it will. It takes practice and it takes knowledge and takes training you just got to do. Okay, now it right this premise general that I would suggest is to ask him if it's okay to go to a kingdom hall with them just go check it out.

And the reason is because you will then find out what you're up against what they do have a been for years. But what they used to do what I would go there all the same thing all the time of the change.

But what they did was they would have someone get up and open the watchtower Bible and tract Society magazine, watchtower magazine and have a Bible up there their particular Bible and then they would read out of the watchtower and it would instruct them to go to the Bible and look at and it would tell them what the Bible meant and then they would SASE for an example would be it would say something like, Jesus is not God because Jesus as the father is greater than he is still iffy Scott if he is far greater than he.

How can you be God, to God be God to be equal to God is go to John 1428 and you know Jesus as a punishment of the night and they still would do this in the article and it's a go to John 314 28 and see it.

So there. He says the father is greater than he therefore is not God and they go to the next thing with her doing is proof texting are not reading things in context are not reading how the Bible teaches various things and it is proof text so this is what you're up against. And there they do this job was with us is required to go to your studies. Once twice a week. My years at a time, so there trained you're not the break fellowship topological call 87720 right back after mass Y call 77077 charismatic showed a party still there so I can say that you need to have some training you to study you to build articulate the dock of the Trinity, the deity of Christ and understand hypostatic union justification imputation.

This particular couple months of study to get them down to repeat them and understand them. And if you're the kingdom hall and you look you'll see that there trained the average Jehovah's Witness can talk circles and argue circles around the average Christian is not found out that rapidly everything that's why say it's good idea to go to a kingdom hall asking to go you don't go to argue that he's good hall of course Anita seems curious and you'll see what you're up against Associates of its brainwashing cult of been many many times and the polite, and I don't go there to start trouble disco when you are there and when he's are not identical.

For right circle had pure logic that when it right way to go yet. He thinks that but there there are things that I can can direct you to that will be problematic for him and that he would not be able to answer. So if you want something quick and slick. I look what you can do all try this, you can just go to CAR see UT and that this will forward you to the page right cut and paste information and the click on the Jehovah's Witness. Lincoln's quick information. There is just meant to be very short and actually developed it from me to begin able to cut into chat rooms to demonstrate stuff and it turns how to became a very useful tool for other things as well, so I recommend you check it out and then we have a whole section on Jehovah's Witness theology, but it does take training to learn how to refute them and and course of this for long time so I can deal with them, but the average Christian just the average Christian does not know the doctrine of the Trinity, nature, Jesus, as is he a man right now. How are we justified what is justification mean what is what I like their unit, yes, except the guy right there except the with this Johnny. 58. What they do as a translator to. I have been so they'd alter the translation and see the problem is that it's it in Greek is what I'll do with them.

Also look in the Greek is a go. Amy, which is the first person singular product present active indicative that means I am no civil you'll and if it good Jehovah's Witness will go to the place where the present accurately can first person singular of the verb to be a me is used and transmitted in the English and the perfect tense of that I have been and there's different ways that can be done. And so then that are knowledgeable to go into that and then I did go into it the perfect tense is what the Greek tents of part of present tense is and show them that in the next question with a wobbly try to kill him and then you with that is to say okay the next place you want to throw stones at him was in John 1010 233 John 1030 through 33 is innocent. What was the reason of trying to kill him and I sort out and there are lots of things to say in arguments. It takes skill, takes practice. If you're not doing it very often you do starting to get very good at it and I'm not trying to dissuade you. I'm just saying it does take a bit of work because these guys in their watchtower and awake magazine have free decades and decades and decades they have been polishing their arguments as to the terms of race and the truck appeared to people to everything, but I know stuff they cannot get out.

I know that's one of things you can do is go to Carmen and look up call upon the name of the Lord is to search without because in their Bible, even the but they are actually supporting that that Jesus Christ is God in flesh of the court to liquidate the fund's King James that's fine. We see the King James doesn't because it was a gradual tenure, but Isaiah 96 and I take him to first contains 12 and cross reference it was Psalm 164 things in my head. You don't know Lisa and not one so I Jacobs is all you can get fine, let's use the King James through Genesis 1924 cross reference with Amos 410, 11, so there's lots of stuff in their and if you know the verses that would do this for long long time. So very good.

The translation NWT is is bad. They've altered the word of God just to suit their theological needs is bad so I sent you have to study. You have a party but you got. You can't just wing it be that if you study okay go to the website check it out. I okay made up all right.

Let's get to Keith from Ohio I Keith Keith before yes requesting a question for you, really fast. Okay there are it in my only air out there, because I heard someone say that the station was 30 more. Now it does link out.

Second, debit Lake out for 15 to 20 minutes and then it'll come back on so I am on the on the radio station out there. Okay yes, towels 106.5 day Greenville arrived will good okay and your buddy wait until people out there in Ohio. All right, so was a question Keith and thanks for answering which a question.

All right, my question is in Hebrews 927 and it is appointed for men to die. Want but after this the judgment.

So my question is when Jesus resurrected Lazarus. Why, where did God never founded in the Bible anywhere where that he died again. He did. I know you say you did but I'm saying is it possible that he could still be alive know the reason is because from the resurrection know because he wasn't raising a glorified body. Jesus is the first one to be raised in glorified body to go to first it is 1535 and 45 and also Colossians 115, the firstborn from the dead and the four stories of her for the resurrected body so that means that latticework was was resurrected, but on the glorified body, she would have died again for I have a I got darker study Bible and it good. It takes what it takes. References to it to go back to John. John, 43 and 44, but that only gives reference of work right phrase blather from the dead men yet he's back to the way it works is that Jesus is the firstfruits he is the firstfruits right. Okay, getting out is do you have why was it that latticework had died or the other people what Christ rage.

I would've thought that when he expended the heaven that he would've taken them then changed her indoor glorified and glorified body. He did not know you devastated that inside okay but I took not the same where he died. The me help you. Jesus is the first one to be risen, the dead in the glorified body. The first one Lazarus was was raised. He was not a glorified body. Therefore, he would've died again when Jesus comes back to take those and resurrect them in the glorified bodies that's a future event, even for now and the first was taken of the wicked before the glitter take Matthew 1330 so the 500. It would resurrected the court at first.

It is 15 one through five, they would've died also. Again, second you go to Hebrews 927 supported amended I want 762 point been die once and for this is judgment what he saying here is that it's the normative thing you die, you just to die once and it's not to say that there weren't others who work resurrected becoming less case with Iago when there are three very right right in the dead yeah and other state the others others erased that as well so he did that to demonstrate who he was when he says it simply wouldn't was talking in Hebrews is talking to the Jews and the concept of the Jewish mind is you die, you die. Once at that you got you go in you face judgment and that's the concept is working with is not saying it's in there asking about okay right what I'm saying is once part I would've thought that they are. You can only die yet is only one real death.

Okay you already things like the pay, they vote for one of line 7207] after that I call 77077 charismatic slave walked back to the show with you on your with the laws now with try Mitchell. We lost.

Let's list right down from a done welcome around here always a pleasure. I have a quiet unit and its out of the context of anointing relate to baptism and reason I ask before you know throughout the years I worked with two different preachers at actual factors law and they actually wanted to anoint me and I would like to know the reason why and what the difference is between the no not sure I understand this connection is with what they were doing but it may, but objects and people are anointed one object or person is anointed, it signifies a calling to that object with a person as well as that object or person being set apart for a holy use special use so objects in the temple were anointed and they were cleansed and things like that is so number is 87. For example, when is talking about the high priest or the priests and the priestly work.

Thus, you shall do them for their cleansing.

Sprinkle purifying water on and then let them use a razor with your whole body parts are close in the McLean so we see here is that the priest needed to be sprinkled with water is with the symbol of anointing for that holy use message going on.

So I directly gave me a person also. His efforts are actually more absolutely. In fact, in first John 227. As for you, with the anointing which you received from him abides in so you have you received an anointing so people can be anointed Jesus was anointed in my opinion since he was baptized to fulfill righteousness heavily to fulfill the Old Testament law and he entered in the priesthood when you go to numbers for accident are numbers eight numbers for Exodus 8 and Leviticus 8 numbers for Exodus 29 in those chapters you see what was necessary for a man to enter into the priesthood had to be 30 years of age, just like Jesus was. I had to be anointed with oil which Jesus was a representation of the Holy Spirit came upon him, and had to be sprinkled with water. That's what's event of first out of the numbers chapter 8 and a verbal blessing given my beloved son in whom I will please so it looks like that's what was there and baptism is related to circumcision and Colossians 211 and this is not theology that most churches will teach because they're not used to looking into sissy covenant theology, but it says in Colossians 211 in him you were circumcised with the circumcision made without hands and removal of the body, the flesh by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism. So Paul relates nothing equates but relate circumcision and baptism together and then when you look at Romans 411 it says Abraham received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteous is the faith which he had while uncircumcised.

So there we see Cecile in assigning the seal of something and so if we are to be consistent.

We can see the baptisms assigning the seal of something will depends what that something is going to prepare his things for this is covenant language and covenant theology and so when you're baptized what you're doing is you're publicly proclaiming a dated dedication to the Lord and in my opinion I believe that certain that baptism is a is a sign and seal of what God is doing so okay okay so I just found that kind of weird because it happened several years are and two different counties are two different entities being out here are two different preachers will not just you know, kind of struck me see. It also says to do with the sick.

So I've done this where some sick early baptized take a little bit of oil and through my fingertip to make a big mess of this ticket, not just anoint someone to put my hand her head and pray over them. I've anointed rooms by going into once years ago there some odd stuff going around the house like to say that and had my wife take our children and got ice cream or something and then I went through the entire house and I anointed every wall every door every room and prayed out loud is as a symbol of the dedication of this house for the Lord and anointing. Yeah, it was like that okay know because where you know even up to date are several asked me to give Bible studies on how I'm just, you know, just, you know, average go to church on you know I just find garlic on computer you know asked me that all so that I was just my question so thank you you welcome the goblins… All right, let's get to money from North Carolina welcoming. Thank you and dear brother I'm going to ask this question.

If contact me something out before you have a question, but pointedly out of the conversation with dealing with Joe and and that even with what the last five before the last New York Times that when confronted with someone the Jehovah witness Dumbarton are coming with false doctrine. Your process and before you answer them. Obviously you happy with the work, but do you to just kind of break that down.

Do you immediately think of this is what the word stagnant start talking to you or do you comment Holy Spirit. I know the word. How do I apply this person where do I start having what it like go with start the direction in answering that it's a mixture because I've been doing this for so many years when someone would ask, for example, the codec 238. To me, is baptism thing necessary for salvation I only have 345 things attached to it mentally right. It is know and I'll I don't have to search for things, so to speak, and come up with something because I know responses within someone might have an answer a question I've not thought of before.

Had to deal with before and I'll say where is that when we see that what you saying and then it is a different process than its lit looking at context, it's saying if there being coherent to sing at their theological position or logical ask of assertion. It is, is consistent and so I just do things like that accident. Go through and apply to other things I've learned and think and then lifetimes. I pray while someone saying something else and looked answer please this I ask you your mercy. Please let my words come forth from you and and give me wisdom and insight will do that to really answer the question because the and the reason I ask it you're talking about with Jehovah's Witness and the guy didn't know how to answer. And again, in all humility, I would by no means am an apologist at the elegant but my relationship with God is totally based on the word and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

The way that what you just said I'm glad you're not late because we went that background that I want people. I believe that pertinent coming out of Jehovah witness with a very specific Scriptures, particularly around got it just the line and Christ did different person under God and all of that will go so I hope that answers that okay my father, my father and I are applying at 1035 guy guy one ending date that my father and our life. And that was just one that I can remember that the point is with my background not having Betty if I like the illusion indefinitely in the work that that was able to work and in height to go for made even more so because I don't know the Greek meaning in all and how it got Holy Spirit just like like his dad.

Let me what it can carry and not what the answer could like it that you know that. But where do I start high like the alto within my colors, waiting for the end of the call before then the hour here but I think I'm with you I think I'm sorry I couldn't.

I can think of the call is a gap I agree we do the I pray and that's a process think things in and us and we got colors waiting want to get them before the end of the hour.

Okay there hello and we lost her all right will this move along this go to Jennifer from North Carolina, Jennifer, welcome here.

I'm thinking we're having a connection problem connection problem that city to get in if you guys can hear me hello are you there, Jennifer, a lot of background noise. Get a quick question, yes I can guess I can so we got out and going blank blank blank date that I got out you go to Ephesians chapter 4 when I think that is relevant here before it says that's he said it himself, is himself who ascended far above the heavens, that he might fulfill all things, and it gets into the verse that can look at verse eight. Now therefore says when he ascended on high, he led To the host of captives and gave gifts to men. So some people think that what happened during a period of time between his death and resurrection is that he went and made proclamation to the spirits in prison and we find that in first Peter 319 says he will know in verse 18 he died was made alive in the spirit. Verse 19 in which he went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison and sewed some people think will exactly what happened, but the general theory is that he during the three days he would made proclamation to those who are in judgment. This is who I am is what I've done and he also went to paradise where those who died in faith of the Messiah in the true God were in the holding place and he went and took them up to heaven and then Caltech and then entered his body that that's one of the theories okay. All right.

Nathan California I want call back and talk about this why we call them gods very very question about it will have a free will tomorrow.
