Alex Jones

Alex Jones, Candace Owens, Bill Hybels, Young Earth Theory!

[buzzsprout episode=’770095′ player=’true’]


Hello friends and thank you for listening to the podcast! The main point of today’s podcast is the attack on Alex Jones and free speech. Candace Owens was also attacked by this movement as she was temporarily suspended from using Twitter. I do not necessarily agree with Alex Jones or some of his points, but he is still entitled to his voice to be heard equally. Notice that I say equally. If these tech companies would police both sides equally, then I believe it would be okay to eliminate Alex Jones from using their platforms. This is called the free market! But it is not about equal policing, is it?

Alex Jones and Candace Owens

Alex Jones is the biggest conspiracy theorist in the mainstream today. Out of Austin, Texas, Jones has become a mainstream personality during the Trump era. Finding footing during the 9/11 fallout under George Bush, Jones has consistently been a thorn in the establishments side.

He says a lot of outlandish things that allows him to get headlines on mainstream sites. He is talked about on the nightly news and was even spoken about from Hilary Clinton herself.

Candace Owens has become a mainstream conservative speaker as well. I would want to see her thoughts on Alex Jones. Candace recently appeared on his show. She was also attacked by the Twitter moderators for her attack on the new NYT Editorial Board member. I would highlight the tweets below on posting, but they are very profane. I read them on the podcast, and you can see them linked here.

Willow Creek Church

Bill HybelsBill Hybels is the biggest pastor to fall during the #MeToo movement. The recent allegation against him will make 10 women that have came forth against the defamed pastor. The account that she tells is graphic to read and is disheartening to see more women come against him. To be fair to Hybels, he has sternly denied these recent allegations against him from this women.

The fallout has led the teaching pastor that took over for him to resign. This man was co-pastoring with another teaching pastor that is a women. He has decided to resign after these latest allegations while the woman has decided to stay on.

I go in on this pastor that decided to leave the church. I believe that a true shepherd would not leave his flock when the weather gets bad. A true shepherd would help the flock through the storm. A false or weak shepherd can only lead the flock when it is sunny and 75 degrees outside.

Young Earth Argument

young earth theoryThis section of the podcast was cut short due to my son waking up earlier than usual. If you have kids you know exactly what I mean!

I preface the argument by stating that this is a secondary argument that cannot keep you from an eternal salvation. However, believing the old earth theory is the wedge evolutionists are using to try and discredit the Bible and Genesis altogether. They are teaching our children this doctrine! This is the way that they can begin to lead young children into atheism and away from salvation.

God bless

Are we Getting Tired of This Yet?

Tomi Lahren. Ben Shapiro. Back at it again.

 

Yes, it is in fact a basic requirement to be pro – life to be considered a true conservative, especially a conservative titan like Lahren is on social media.

The Achilles heel to Lahren’s popularity among conservatives is her stance on abortion and her pro abortion views. Shapiro has made it clear in the past that he is not a fan of Lahren and has often poked fun at her on his podcast. At least when I used to listen.

Why did I quit listening to his podcast? I feel weird supporting non – Christians and because each day it was the same outrage routine. I get tired of being mad at people because of their political beliefs.

With the recent debates surrounding the chance of Roe v Wade being overturned, it was only a matter of time before Shapiro and Lahren threw jabs at each other again on social media. Below are some highlights of the recent exchange:

Shapiro got into a recent altercation with Candace Owens on Twitter and she used the “conservative thought police” argument against Shapiro, so I am assuming that Lahren saw that nickname from her exchange. This conservative thought police view been a recent argument against Shapiro as he is often viewed as the thought leader among conservative evangelicals and conservative millennials.

She does make a strong point here. Shapiro was definitely anti-Trump during the campaign, but he was not as strongly opposed to Trump as was Glenn Beck. Nonetheless, there have been decent arguments that conservatism would be healthier if Hilary would have become President.

Here is where Lahren makes her weak point:

Abortion has and will continue to be a hotly debated issue in America. It is still a strongly held belief that abortion should be illegal among conservatives and definitely is a belief among evangelicals. Pro Life should be the only viewpoint among evangelicals, but some “Christians” still try and argue the latter. To be pro choice is to really be pro abortion, but that does not sound as nice when trying to debate the viewpoint.

I pray that Lahren and other Christians see the flaws of their views and repent. The view that life is okay to be stopped is utterly inhumane and immoral at every level of the child’s life. The life that God has breathed into us is something that should not be interfered with and certainly not destroyed.

There are also many fans of Shapiro in the Christian world. Sure, his political beliefs are common among millennial Christians, but we should be cautious in holding him up in such high esteem. Take this recent exchange he had on Jesus Christ, for example:

I thought Shapiro was going to have some intellectually thought out response on why he does not accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah, but I was proven wrong. His long, thought out political beliefs have been met with a short, narrow minded view of Christ. Shapiro exposes himself as an uneducated Jewish man on the history of the TRUE Messiah, Jesus Christ.

We all need to pray that his heart and the Jewish people’s hearts will be opened to Jesus Christ and that they will be filled with the Holy Spirit and repent, so we can see them in heaven as well. We need to be cautious and loving when witnessing to the Jewish people and express the love that we have for them. It is my understanding that Shapiro works with many Christians, so we should pray that God’s Will is done through them with Ben Shapiro.

God bless
