WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.120 --> 00:00:05.400 So while abortion is legal in these United States of America and they are still 2 00:00:05.400 --> 00:00:09.150 abortion clinics, there's over seven hundred of them in the United States of America 3 00:00:09.269 --> 00:00:14.429 currently. We need to be there. I Am Yours, I am yours, 4 00:00:14.470 --> 00:00:18.870 I am yours. Welcome to the Gospel Center pro life podcast. Many 5 00:00:18.949 --> 00:00:23.379 have confidence that if we have a conservative Supreme Court and that will overturn ruby 6 00:00:23.460 --> 00:00:27.539 wait and thereby ind abortion. But is this true? Join us as we 7 00:00:27.579 --> 00:00:31.980 look at this from a biblical and practical perspective. State tuned me, Lord, 8 00:00:34.820 --> 00:00:47.609 I felt show Passish, touch your heart, use me. Welcome to 9 00:00:47.649 --> 00:00:52.799 the Gospel Center pro life podcast. Appreciate you guys listening and we would appreciate 10 00:00:52.840 --> 00:00:56.880 if you guys would share these with your friends, maybe even on social media. 11 00:00:56.920 --> 00:01:00.520 Let folks know that you're listening and what episodes you think would be a 12 00:01:00.560 --> 00:01:03.670 blessing to others. Just share those, share those on Facebook, whatever other 13 00:01:03.790 --> 00:01:08.030 social media that you're involved in, so that we can get more folks listening. 14 00:01:08.069 --> 00:01:11.269 And I think what we're doing is encouraging people, especially those who are 15 00:01:11.269 --> 00:01:15.590 involved in frontline pro life ministry. At the abortion center's we want to encourage 16 00:01:15.590 --> 00:01:19.980 as many people as possible to get involved to be well equipped out there. 17 00:01:19.739 --> 00:01:25.219 We just put a podcast out last week about burnout and how to avoid ministry 18 00:01:25.219 --> 00:01:27.140 burnout. I think that podcast will be a real blessing to people, will 19 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:30.379 especially people that have been out there for a while and been doing ministry for 20 00:01:30.739 --> 00:01:34.810 a good while, because it's easy to get burned out, right it is. 21 00:01:34.450 --> 00:01:38.129 So there's some principles that I think we shared in that podcast. It 22 00:01:38.250 --> 00:01:42.969 be a blessing to people who are maybe on the edge of getting burned out 23 00:01:42.010 --> 00:01:46.129 or even maybe getting toward crispy. And if you don't know what that is, 24 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:49.640 listen to that podcast. You'll find out about that. But we thought 25 00:01:49.280 --> 00:01:53.799 is in kind of a timely way in this episode we would talk about the 26 00:01:53.799 --> 00:01:59.920 Supreme Court. Now just will preface this with the fact that we're not legal 27 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:02.750 experts, nor do we play one on TV. Even play one on TV. 28 00:02:04.030 --> 00:02:07.789 I'm not an expert on the Constitution, although I do love the constitution. 29 00:02:08.069 --> 00:02:10.949 It's one of the things that really sets our nation apart. Yeah, 30 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:17.219 to be a constitutional Republican and to be the freest nation that I think has 31 00:02:17.259 --> 00:02:23.500 ever existed in humanities. Existence is is it says something. Says something about 32 00:02:23.500 --> 00:02:25.939 our constitution but I'm not an expert on the constitution. I know some stuff, 33 00:02:25.939 --> 00:02:30.409 but not everything. I'm not an expert on the Supreme Court, nor 34 00:02:30.449 --> 00:02:32.409 I'm a even an expert on Rovwade. People come to me. I'm like 35 00:02:34.330 --> 00:02:36.969 and in my circles, I guess family and friends and stuff. I'm like 36 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:39.449 the pro life guy, so I should know all of the answers about Rovy 37 00:02:39.530 --> 00:02:45.199 Wade and and the laws and all that stuff. I don't. I know 38 00:02:45.360 --> 00:02:49.280 some of it, but I'll just let you guys know right off bat that 39 00:02:49.560 --> 00:02:52.800 I don't put a whole lot of stock in the political system. I don't 40 00:02:52.800 --> 00:02:57.120 put a whole lot a lot of stock in the Supreme Court, but these 41 00:02:57.199 --> 00:03:02.270 things are important and with the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the potential nomination 42 00:03:02.389 --> 00:03:07.110 of Amy Conny Barrett Ate, listen, you guys are lucky that I even 43 00:03:07.189 --> 00:03:08.629 remember those names. Okay, yes, and tell me. I know her 44 00:03:08.629 --> 00:03:12.789 name is amy. Yeah, that's about it. So with that going on, 45 00:03:12.939 --> 00:03:15.939 I think it's timely for us to talk about this. And really the 46 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:21.539 subject is will the Supreme Court in abortion. There's a lot of talk about 47 00:03:21.539 --> 00:03:23.020 overturning movie way there has been for a while as a matter of fact, 48 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:27.060 that's why a lot of people voted for Donald Trump back in two thousand and 49 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:29.969 sixteen, Hey, because they really felt like he would put justice as in 50 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:32.409 place that would overturn rovy wait and he said that. He said that was 51 00:03:32.530 --> 00:03:37.289 his intention. Yeah, and so a lot of folks were they didn't like 52 00:03:37.409 --> 00:03:39.289 his character too much, they voted for him. I was actually one of 53 00:03:39.330 --> 00:03:45.000 those people. Yeah, and thinking that it's possible that Rovy Wade could be 54 00:03:45.039 --> 00:03:49.439 overturned by some justices that are put in place by him. But it's kind 55 00:03:49.479 --> 00:03:52.319 of a like for me. Again, I don't put a whole lot of 56 00:03:52.360 --> 00:03:55.710 stock in the political system. I do think that Supreme Court justices have a 57 00:03:55.789 --> 00:04:00.469 lot of sway and or at least have a lot to do with our political 58 00:04:00.509 --> 00:04:03.150 system, in the way it works. Understand the checks and balances that are 59 00:04:03.189 --> 00:04:09.469 there and I think it's important to have conservative judges in place. But just 60 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:13.659 let you guys know, I don't think that abortion is going to be ended 61 00:04:13.699 --> 00:04:17.180 by the Supreme Court or by any other entity right, but we're going to 62 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:19.579 talk about that. Yeah, I could be wrong. Yeah, we are. 63 00:04:19.740 --> 00:04:25.170 And and part of this for me, that prompted me to want to 64 00:04:25.209 --> 00:04:28.889 look into this a little bit more. Was One of our counselors saying, 65 00:04:29.769 --> 00:04:34.410 so what if Rov Wade is overturned? Yeah, what will the prolife people 66 00:04:34.569 --> 00:04:41.040 do then? Yeah, and that that is part of a question that we're 67 00:04:41.040 --> 00:04:44.920 going to talk about. Because we have any purpose in life, will we 68 00:04:45.079 --> 00:04:49.480 still have any way to serve God right sunborn children? And Short answer, 69 00:04:49.560 --> 00:04:54.110 yeah, she will, and and we're going to get into use their lost 70 00:04:54.269 --> 00:04:57.589 people in the world. Yeah, there's going to be a need for the 71 00:04:57.670 --> 00:05:00.709 Gospel, and this is something that we've said often and that I'll continue to 72 00:05:00.790 --> 00:05:06.110 say. We're not out there on the sidewalk is prolife activists. I'm not 73 00:05:06.139 --> 00:05:13.339 out there motivated by just a prolife Anster or bend politically or anything like that. 74 00:05:13.420 --> 00:05:15.500 I'm out there because I'm a Christian right and there are people dying. 75 00:05:15.500 --> 00:05:19.699 Yeah, and the Gospel is needed and it's a mission field. I'm out 76 00:05:19.699 --> 00:05:24.170 there as a missionary, like we've talked about in previous in a previous podcast 77 00:05:24.329 --> 00:05:27.850 and several other podcasts. This is a missionary endeavor and so we're not out 78 00:05:27.850 --> 00:05:30.810 there as activists and my main purpose in life is not to be a prolife 79 00:05:30.810 --> 00:05:34.050 activists, it's to be a Christian, right, and because I'm a Christian, 80 00:05:34.089 --> 00:05:36.800 I'm out there. Yeah, yeah, yeah, an important dynamic for 81 00:05:36.839 --> 00:05:42.720 people to understand. Right. But Rov Rov Wade is clearly and a very 82 00:05:42.759 --> 00:05:46.120 important decision in one thousand nine hundred and seventy three. And and so we 83 00:05:46.199 --> 00:05:53.870 kind of went through logically building the the case for explain what is going to 84 00:05:53.990 --> 00:06:00.949 happen when if Rov Wade is overturned. And we started off just maybe talk 85 00:06:00.990 --> 00:06:03.540 a little bit about the history, okay, of yea, of abortion and 86 00:06:03.660 --> 00:06:08.379 of Rov Wade and the that one thousand nine hundred and seventy three decision. 87 00:06:08.500 --> 00:06:12.019 Yeah. Well, first I'll say this is we first started talking about doing 88 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:15.459 this podcast a couple of weeks ago, doing this episode, and I told 89 00:06:15.459 --> 00:06:18.490 you, one of the things that drives me insane is when people, pro 90 00:06:18.610 --> 00:06:23.930 life people or whoever talks about pro choice, people talk about when Rov Wade 91 00:06:23.970 --> 00:06:27.930 was passed. Right. Yeah, Rov Rovy Wade was not a law. 92 00:06:27.970 --> 00:06:31.129 Right, so it can't be passed. Right. So only the legislative branch 93 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:34.399 can actually pass laws. Right, right, that's how the system of government 94 00:06:34.439 --> 00:06:39.279 works in the United States of America. Yeah, the Supreme Court doesn't pass 95 00:06:39.279 --> 00:06:44.480 laws. Now to say it correctly, is the decision, the Rovy Wade 96 00:06:44.480 --> 00:06:47.069 decision was handed down. So this was the decision that the Supreme Court made 97 00:06:47.670 --> 00:06:51.949 based on the the whole case of Roe versus Wade. Right. And so 98 00:06:53.269 --> 00:06:57.509 if you guys are using that in your vernacular when Rov Wade was passed and 99 00:06:57.829 --> 00:07:00.740 we want the law of Rovy Wade to be overturned, it's not a law. 100 00:07:00.980 --> 00:07:03.420 Yeah, and it wasn't passed. Yeah, it was a decision that 101 00:07:03.540 --> 00:07:06.420 was handed down by the Supreme Court. So Handy to say clear on that 102 00:07:06.540 --> 00:07:09.939 is a good way. Is that to say it? Okay, okay, 103 00:07:09.980 --> 00:07:13.420 Rovy Wade was decided. You could say that. Yeah, yeah, but 104 00:07:13.500 --> 00:07:17.290 let's jump into the history of Rov Wade. Some folks may be kind of 105 00:07:17.370 --> 00:07:20.209 new to this battle and don't really know a whole lot about it. Maybe 106 00:07:20.329 --> 00:07:24.089 you do know a little bit about it and you need to know some more. 107 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:26.930 We'll try to inform you. Again, not as experts, yeah, 108 00:07:26.970 --> 00:07:30.160 but as folks that know know something. Yeah, and we've read a few 109 00:07:30.199 --> 00:07:31.639 articles about it, right, yeah, yeah, so jump into that. 110 00:07:31.800 --> 00:07:38.360 Yeah, okay. So so Roe, Jane Rowe Norman mccorvey, was a 111 00:07:39.399 --> 00:07:43.160 young woman who, I believe she lived in Texas at the time. Correct, 112 00:07:43.199 --> 00:07:46.189 and she she wanted an abortion, she didn't want her baby, and 113 00:07:46.389 --> 00:07:56.310 the the people that were trying to push for abortion rights really used her, 114 00:07:56.550 --> 00:08:00.540 yeah, and said, okay, she is the perfect case to for us 115 00:08:00.660 --> 00:08:03.459 to work its way up through the courts to try and bring it to the 116 00:08:03.540 --> 00:08:07.019 Supreme Court level. Right, let me say this to that some people don't 117 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:11.459 particularly understand, but this needs to be a clear understanding that people have. 118 00:08:11.779 --> 00:08:15.449 Before Rovy Wade, before one thousand nine hundred and seventy three was January twenty 119 00:08:15.449 --> 00:08:18.569 two. One thousand nine hundred and seventy three, abortion was legal in this 120 00:08:18.689 --> 00:08:22.610 country. Yeah, there were states where you could go and have an abortion. 121 00:08:22.730 --> 00:08:26.769 New York is one of those state. Probably California, I'm not sure. 122 00:08:26.129 --> 00:08:30.319 So the aim out all the states, thus the their legislature had had 123 00:08:30.439 --> 00:08:33.559 cast laws that allowed women to receive an abortion. Correct, it was the 124 00:08:33.639 --> 00:08:37.159 state's decision, it was correct states decision. So I'll just say on its 125 00:08:37.200 --> 00:08:41.629 face, if the decision of Rov Wade is is counteracted by some other decision 126 00:08:41.710 --> 00:08:46.669 of the Supreme Court, then it will buy default go back to the states. 127 00:08:46.870 --> 00:08:50.350 So abortion, and again we'll get more in depth with this, but 128 00:08:50.429 --> 00:08:54.389 abortion is not going to be ended by overturning row vy way. It'll just 129 00:08:54.470 --> 00:08:56.779 go back to the states. So we have to have that understanding at this 130 00:08:56.899 --> 00:09:01.580 particular time. It was not legal to have an abortion in the state of 131 00:09:01.659 --> 00:09:05.059 Texas. As a matter of fact, if I'm not mistaken, it was 132 00:09:05.179 --> 00:09:09.740 legal with some of the exceptions like rape and incest and the health of the 133 00:09:09.779 --> 00:09:13.610 mother, but those are exceptions. Are always used for fullblown abortion on demand 134 00:09:13.649 --> 00:09:18.809 and plus we should never use those exceptions unless we believe a baby that was 135 00:09:18.889 --> 00:09:20.529 conceived in rape as less of a human being that a baby that was not 136 00:09:22.009 --> 00:09:24.519 we should stay far away from those arguments, and right we. I did 137 00:09:24.559 --> 00:09:28.039 an episode months and months and months, okay, maybe even a year ago, 138 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:33.000 with Flip Benham who talked about incrementalism and the danger of incrementary incrementalism and 139 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:37.279 some of the legislation, and he talks about some of that stuff. There's 140 00:09:37.320 --> 00:09:39.110 a lot of articles out there about that, so I guess can check that 141 00:09:39.149 --> 00:09:43.990 out. But abortion was, at least in some measure, not legal in 142 00:09:43.149 --> 00:09:50.950 Texas. They took the opportunity with miss row normal mccorvy, with her situation, 143 00:09:50.629 --> 00:09:58.019 to basically make abortion legal for all fifty of the United States of America, 144 00:09:58.059 --> 00:10:01.259 because it was sudden fair that here she is in Texas and other people 145 00:10:01.299 --> 00:10:05.500 in other states where abortion is legal had access to abortion, but she did 146 00:10:05.580 --> 00:10:07.330 not. And that was part of their argument, that that it should be 147 00:10:07.370 --> 00:10:13.049 universally available. Yeah, national was all said and done, she didn't have 148 00:10:13.090 --> 00:10:16.409 an abortion in right now, she didn't see was she was a pawn. 149 00:10:16.610 --> 00:10:22.960 And now there's been recently there was a documentary done about her and how she 150 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:26.720 actually was a pawn for the prolife people. Right, unfortunately, she was 151 00:10:26.759 --> 00:10:31.440 used by a pawn or as a pawn by the pro choice people and maybe 152 00:10:31.519 --> 00:10:33.399 buy some pro life people, although I'll tell you this, I know flip 153 00:10:33.600 --> 00:10:37.830 personally. Yeah, and any accusation brought against him as using her as a 154 00:10:37.870 --> 00:10:41.269 pawn is just, I mean, it is garbage. Absolutely guardless that that 155 00:10:41.350 --> 00:10:45.110 dude is one. He's not a deceiver, let me tell you. He's 156 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:46.309 going to tell you what he thinks, what he what he believes and what 157 00:10:46.509 --> 00:10:50.179 he what he knows to be the king of fault to him. All that 158 00:10:50.340 --> 00:10:52.860 right, he's not going to be deceiving anybody, right, and it's not 159 00:10:52.940 --> 00:10:56.940 like because he was accused of giving her like half a million dollars or something 160 00:10:56.940 --> 00:11:01.940 like that. Utterly ridiculn guarantee flip does not have him about his tattered rags 161 00:11:03.019 --> 00:11:05.570 that he wears the place often time. rightually, his shoes were duck taped 162 00:11:05.649 --> 00:11:09.330 together at one point. Winner so maybe flip will listen to this. Yeah, 163 00:11:09.490 --> 00:11:11.809 be blessed, but he's encouraging words. But either way, I'm just 164 00:11:11.809 --> 00:11:16.529 saying that's just that's garbage. And what she manipulated? She was certainly manipulated 165 00:11:16.570 --> 00:11:18.639 by the true pro choice people. That's there's no doubt about that. Well, 166 00:11:18.759 --> 00:11:22.399 she manipulated by prolife groups? Possibly? Yeah, I'm not sure. 167 00:11:24.120 --> 00:11:26.440 But anyway, that's kind of a rabbit trail. So let's jump into the 168 00:11:26.879 --> 00:11:30.639 that's a little bit of the background of Rovu waiting in not in debt and 169 00:11:30.759 --> 00:11:33.389 so. But the court held that. Do say this at the court held 170 00:11:33.429 --> 00:11:39.830 that a women's right to an abortion was himplicit in the right to privacy protected 171 00:11:39.990 --> 00:11:43.590 by the Fourteenth Amendment and the Constitution. That's how it is. ACISION was 172 00:11:43.710 --> 00:11:48.139 made that you had a woman had an implicit right to privacy through the fourteen 173 00:11:48.259 --> 00:11:54.059 amendment and abortion fell somehow into that. Yeah, right to privacy and we're 174 00:11:54.059 --> 00:11:58.980 going to kind of dismantle why that really is not an appropriate decision, not 175 00:11:58.100 --> 00:12:01.929 based on our great knowledge, but based on articles we read. Ye, 176 00:12:01.009 --> 00:12:05.570 though, even that one I could probably maybe have. Yeah, I've dealt 177 00:12:05.570 --> 00:12:09.809 with so let's jump into the subject of will there not rovy wait is constitution. 178 00:12:09.970 --> 00:12:13.450 Okay, now you've read a little bit on that and so just kind 179 00:12:13.490 --> 00:12:16.320 of give me your Spiel, right, right. Yeah, so I read 180 00:12:16.320 --> 00:12:18.720 an article and, by the way, we can probably post this. I 181 00:12:20.159 --> 00:12:26.679 have. I have put together many, many articles into a single paper where 182 00:12:28.480 --> 00:12:31.350 we go through the things that we're going to be discussing today and we give 183 00:12:31.389 --> 00:12:35.070 every reference, because there's too many of them for me to give you over 184 00:12:35.190 --> 00:12:41.389 the podcast. But one of the articles which did talk about whether Rovy Wade 185 00:12:41.509 --> 00:12:46.059 was constitutional, and you can find that Lincoln. When we post this podcast, 186 00:12:46.100 --> 00:12:48.860 we will also post to this article. But it listed the top ten 187 00:12:50.019 --> 00:12:52.820 reasons why it was not constitutional, and we're not going to go through all 188 00:12:54.019 --> 00:12:58.649 ten, but but maybe the top three or four of them. So one 189 00:12:58.690 --> 00:13:05.210 of them was the court's decision and Rovy Wade exceeded its constitutional authority, and 190 00:13:05.330 --> 00:13:11.450 you've already touched on this. It is the Supreme Court, a legislate of 191 00:13:11.649 --> 00:13:18.799 branch of government. No, no, so. And yet the law of 192 00:13:18.320 --> 00:13:26.039 nationally could not be passed to allow abortions in every state. They were unsuccessful 193 00:13:26.519 --> 00:13:30.789 the abortion rights people. So what happened instead was they push this case up 194 00:13:31.149 --> 00:13:37.230 through the Supreme Court to have the Supreme Court basically change United States law, 195 00:13:37.309 --> 00:13:43.419 or make really not change may there wasn't a law, so to make what 196 00:13:43.620 --> 00:13:46.299 became, quote, the law of the land. Yeah, and basically they 197 00:13:46.379 --> 00:13:50.620 used again the fourteenth amendment right to say, well, this fits into the 198 00:13:50.700 --> 00:13:56.289 category of a woman's right to privacy right and and one of the quotes that 199 00:13:56.450 --> 00:14:01.450 I have from this first point that it was unconstitutional. I'm just going to 200 00:14:01.570 --> 00:14:05.090 read what it says because they say it better than I could. Under the 201 00:14:05.169 --> 00:14:09.279 legal system established by the US Constitution, the power to make laws is vested 202 00:14:09.399 --> 00:14:15.120 in Congress and retained by state legislatures. It is not the role of the 203 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:20.279 Supreme Court to substitute the policy preference of its members for those expressed in laws 204 00:14:20.480 --> 00:14:26.230 enacted by the People's electric elected representatives. The role of the judiciary and constitutional 205 00:14:26.309 --> 00:14:35.110 review is to determine if the law being challenged infringes on a constitutionally protected right, 206 00:14:35.470 --> 00:14:39.299 and that's not what happened. And ropey Wade. Okay. So this 207 00:14:39.500 --> 00:14:46.659 second main point for why Rov Wade is not constitutional, they said, was 208 00:14:46.740 --> 00:14:54.409 that the court misrepresents the history of abortion practice and attitudes toward abortion. Okay. 209 00:14:54.889 --> 00:15:01.330 So in row vy wade the court s said that there was, in 210 00:15:01.370 --> 00:15:09.080 their opinion, there was a long historical practice of the right to an abortion. 211 00:15:09.559 --> 00:15:15.039 Okay, that was part of their premise in in upholding or in the 212 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:24.789 decision, and that it was widely practiced and unpunished until the appearance of restrictive 213 00:15:24.789 --> 00:15:28.909 laws in what they describe as the brutishly Victorian nineteen century. Okay, but 214 00:15:30.590 --> 00:15:39.620 in fact the hippocratic oath which every doctor takes said and had all the way 215 00:15:39.940 --> 00:15:46.059 through one thousand nine hundred and sixty eight, says. His fame is that 216 00:15:46.259 --> 00:15:52.169 famous oath which has guided medical ethics for over twozero years. Says in part, 217 00:15:52.370 --> 00:15:56.289 and this is a quote, I will give no deadly medicine to anyone 218 00:15:56.330 --> 00:16:02.610 if asked, nor suggest any such council. And in like manner, I 219 00:16:02.730 --> 00:16:07.720 will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. So something that's 220 00:16:07.759 --> 00:16:11.320 going to was her to yeah, to abort her child, and that enduring 221 00:16:11.480 --> 00:16:18.590 standard was followed until the rovy way waited era and through one thousand nine hundred 222 00:16:18.629 --> 00:16:22.909 and sixty eight. And in fact it the declaration of the World Medical Association 223 00:16:22.950 --> 00:16:27.149 said, I will maintain they had the doctors continue the oath. I will 224 00:16:27.149 --> 00:16:33.779 maintain the utmost respect for human life from the time of conception. Yeah. 225 00:16:33.299 --> 00:16:37.620 So in that it's saying things, every of them looking back and saying there's 226 00:16:37.659 --> 00:16:42.139 been like historical precedent. And so all we're doing with our decision is saying 227 00:16:42.940 --> 00:16:47.889 what history is already said, that women do have a right to an abortion. 228 00:16:47.929 --> 00:16:49.370 It's a common thing and it's not been punish under all that was all 229 00:16:49.529 --> 00:16:53.169 just a farce. It was not true. Right, it was not true. 230 00:16:53.730 --> 00:16:59.250 And and Justice Black Man, who was, I believe, the justice 231 00:16:59.289 --> 00:17:06.079 who wrote the the opinion and Rov wait, dismisses this universal, unbroken ethical 232 00:17:06.200 --> 00:17:14.839 tradition as nothing more than a fringe Greek sect manifesto. So we would we 233 00:17:14.920 --> 00:17:22.430 would disagree that the court accurately represented the history of abortion practice. Yeah, 234 00:17:22.470 --> 00:17:26.190 and and attitudes. Yeah, all right. So the third one. The 235 00:17:26.509 --> 00:17:33.500 court distorts the purpose and legal weight of State Criminal abortioned statutes. And so 236 00:17:33.579 --> 00:17:37.700 let me read what they wrote because again and they I am not a scholar, 237 00:17:40.940 --> 00:17:44.019 a constitutional scholar, but the person writing this was. Okay, in 238 00:17:44.140 --> 00:17:48.849 the nineteen century and virtually every state and territory, laws were enacted to define 239 00:17:48.890 --> 00:17:56.569 abortion as a crime throughout pregnancy. They contained only narrow exceptions, generally permitting 240 00:17:56.609 --> 00:18:03.519 abortion only if necessary to preserve the mother's life. And the primary reason for 241 00:18:03.640 --> 00:18:10.279 those stricter abortion laws was to protect greater protection for the unborn baby. So 242 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:17.069 the court distorted that truth, that the laws up to that point we're not 243 00:18:17.349 --> 00:18:21.509 supporting a woman's right to abortion and in fact the very opposite was true. 244 00:18:21.549 --> 00:18:30.299 They were generally supporting and overwhelmingly supporting protecting that unborn life. Okay, so 245 00:18:30.660 --> 00:18:34.660 what's being said here is the consideration for these laws was for the unborn child 246 00:18:34.819 --> 00:18:42.529 and basically reiterating with the Bible has always said that life is precious, invaluable, 247 00:18:44.369 --> 00:18:47.769 even in the womb. Right, that's right. And up to up 248 00:18:47.890 --> 00:18:53.569 till this point in our country's history, the unborn child was seen as valuable, 249 00:18:53.849 --> 00:18:59.960 his life sacred, yeah, and protected and should be protected, and 250 00:19:00.079 --> 00:19:04.240 there was broad acceptance of that prior to the Rovy Wade are yeah, okay, 251 00:19:06.039 --> 00:19:08.000 so okay. How about this one? This was another major one, 252 00:19:08.119 --> 00:19:11.349 a privacy right, which was, of course, the fourteenth amendment. A 253 00:19:12.029 --> 00:19:18.430 privacy right to decide to have an abortion has no foundation in the text or 254 00:19:19.029 --> 00:19:26.779 history of the Constitution. So the court did not even be pretend that they 255 00:19:26.819 --> 00:19:33.420 were examining whether the intent of the drafters of the fourteen amendment ever intended something 256 00:19:33.539 --> 00:19:40.529 like abortion to to be included in a privacy amendment or in a privacy yet. 257 00:19:40.569 --> 00:19:45.650 And a privacy amendment it was. The fourteenth amendment was not intended to 258 00:19:45.849 --> 00:19:51.049 create any new rights, such as a right to abortion, but it was 259 00:19:51.329 --> 00:19:56.720 to it was actually to secure to all people, notably freed slaves and their 260 00:19:56.759 --> 00:20:02.240 descendants, the rights and liberties that had already been granted by the Constitution. 261 00:20:02.440 --> 00:20:07.670 So was never to make a new right, as did happen. That was 262 00:20:07.829 --> 00:20:12.069 what it was used for. In deciding on Rovy way, the way that 263 00:20:12.150 --> 00:20:15.710 it was decide, grievous way to use the fourteenth amendment, when it was 264 00:20:15.789 --> 00:20:22.660 intended to help these freed slaves and their descendants, and yet they turn it 265 00:20:22.740 --> 00:20:26.740 around and make it into a woman's right to abort her child. Would a 266 00:20:26.819 --> 00:20:29.460 grievous way to turn things on their head. Yeah, so this is really 267 00:20:29.500 --> 00:20:32.299 interesting and I'm going to read what they say. The court mentioned so of 268 00:20:32.339 --> 00:20:37.170 All specifically enumerated rights which concern an aspect of privacy. For example, the 269 00:20:37.329 --> 00:20:40.809 fourth amendments with this is, quote, right of the people to be secure 270 00:20:40.849 --> 00:20:45.849 in their houses, papers and effects, again against unreasonable searches and seizures. 271 00:20:45.329 --> 00:20:51.440 But the court fails to connect those to the newly found right to abortion, 272 00:20:51.640 --> 00:20:57.079 because no logical connection exists. And so this privacy right had been expanded to 273 00:20:57.200 --> 00:21:07.069 encompass so many aspects of life that you could apply this to virtually any conduct 274 00:21:07.269 --> 00:21:12.549 performed outside of the public view, including child abuse, pornography. Now, 275 00:21:12.630 --> 00:21:17.150 that is not what it was expanded to. But why not? Right, 276 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:21.740 because the logical conclusion from that exactly. People can shoot up drugs in their 277 00:21:21.859 --> 00:21:23.940 home, whatever pause. That right and always as long as you're doing it 278 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:29.740 in private, abuse each other, abuse children, sexual traffic children in your 279 00:21:29.819 --> 00:21:34.170 home because of the right to privacy. Yeah, so, basically the point 280 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:41.490 is that's a ridiculous application of the fourteenth amendment. Right. Yeah, okay, 281 00:21:41.769 --> 00:21:47.519 the next one, although it reads the fourteen amendment extremely expansively, to 282 00:21:47.759 --> 00:21:52.839 include a right of privacy to decide whether to abort a child. The CORDIN 283 00:21:52.200 --> 00:22:00.240 rovy way to adopts a very narrow construction of the meaning of persons and specifically 284 00:22:00.319 --> 00:22:07.150 the excludes unborn children. Yeah, so on one hand they're expansively expand while 285 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:12.309 they're expanding what the fourteenth amendment never meant to protect, but they're narrowing what 286 00:22:12.470 --> 00:22:18.180 the word persons includes so that unborn children are not included in the weird persons 287 00:22:18.700 --> 00:22:22.299 in so I'll say just just a springboard on that and to speak from it 288 00:22:22.380 --> 00:22:27.140 from a biblical perspective good and which is one of the reasons why. So 289 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:30.890 I don't want anyone to take from this podcast that we don't think that rovywage 290 00:22:30.890 --> 00:22:36.210 should be returned. It should be that decision should be should be rejected. 291 00:22:36.369 --> 00:22:40.809 Right. The reason why is not because it will end abortion. The reason 292 00:22:40.890 --> 00:22:45.160 why because, as a nation, that would be part and parcel to repenting. 293 00:22:45.759 --> 00:22:48.240 Yes, because what we did as a nation and the people that we 294 00:22:48.319 --> 00:22:52.799 put in positions of power, especially the Supreme Court, well, what they 295 00:22:52.920 --> 00:22:59.349 did was they slapped God in the face. Yeah, they told their creator, 296 00:23:00.390 --> 00:23:02.269 we don't need you, we don't want you. On our land. 297 00:23:02.589 --> 00:23:06.349 Yeah, and all, after all, human beings don't have intrinsic value, 298 00:23:06.390 --> 00:23:10.950 right, and it's really an offense to God, which is why this thing 299 00:23:11.069 --> 00:23:15.099 needs to this decision needs to be rejected. One Organization Calls Rovy way not 300 00:23:15.220 --> 00:23:18.099 the law of the land, the lie of the land. Yeah, and 301 00:23:18.220 --> 00:23:22.299 it really is. Yeah, and so as a nation, this is part 302 00:23:22.339 --> 00:23:26.569 of repentance. We need to repent that we have excluded, as you just 303 00:23:26.690 --> 00:23:30.369 said, out in from this article. They excluded unborn children from the category 304 00:23:30.410 --> 00:23:33.009 of persons. We need right pant for that as a nation, right, 305 00:23:33.250 --> 00:23:38.089 and part of that would be overturning of rovy way. Yeah, but again, 306 00:23:38.769 --> 00:23:41.079 as we're going to talk about in just a little bit, I don't 307 00:23:41.119 --> 00:23:45.319 believe overturning Rovy Wade is going to end abortion, right, and we'll talk 308 00:23:45.319 --> 00:23:49.200 about what will at the very end. So there's a whole bunch of other 309 00:23:49.599 --> 00:23:56.990 main points that they make, but they they do ignore by, just to 310 00:23:56.309 --> 00:23:59.869 add a little bit more to the last one we just mentioned, they ignore 311 00:23:59.910 --> 00:24:06.190 the clear and uncontested biological evidence before them that individual human lives Beakin at conception. 312 00:24:07.309 --> 00:24:11.180 We really do not need to resolve that difficult question of when life begins, 313 00:24:11.299 --> 00:24:15.779 though, honestly, because this question is determined by science. We know 314 00:24:15.900 --> 00:24:18.819 that now and they knew that then. But, like you said, it's 315 00:24:18.819 --> 00:24:23.690 kind of a direct rejection of God, so that it's kind of a quote 316 00:24:25.089 --> 00:24:29.369 from the court itself. We don't need to resolve this difficult question of when 317 00:24:29.490 --> 00:24:32.450 life begins. I think it was. Yeah, I think I think it 318 00:24:32.730 --> 00:24:37.130 was. So they're basically saying in that that yeah, it could be, 319 00:24:37.450 --> 00:24:38.720 could not be. Could be life, could not be, life, the 320 00:24:38.920 --> 00:24:41.440 matter. They side step it. It doesn't matter. They said step it, 321 00:24:41.519 --> 00:24:45.319 you know. Yeah, the one analogy that's given, and I forget 322 00:24:45.319 --> 00:24:48.759 it, was it was a surprise life apologetics guy, maybe Scott clues indoor 323 00:24:48.839 --> 00:24:52.589 for something he says, you know, if there's a building and they're about 324 00:24:52.589 --> 00:24:56.910 to demolish the building and you ask the guy who's about to push the button, 325 00:24:57.029 --> 00:25:00.230 hey, is there any life in there? And Wow, we didn't 326 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:03.990 check, we don't know. We don't have really have to resolve this question. 327 00:25:03.109 --> 00:25:07.380 Well, you'd need to resolve that question before you push the button and 328 00:25:07.619 --> 00:25:10.819 detonate, you know, the the the bomb that's going to take that building 329 00:25:10.819 --> 00:25:14.980 down. We need to if we're talking this is human life and the potential 330 00:25:15.019 --> 00:25:18.660 for human life and this is possibly a human life. We need to be 331 00:25:18.819 --> 00:25:22.450 careful, right, don't you think? Exactly. No, let's just haphazardly 332 00:25:22.210 --> 00:25:26.890 decide that. Yeah, personhood doesn't include unborn yeah. And and they're saying 333 00:25:26.930 --> 00:25:32.329 that's a question to be decided by science, philosopher's theologians, and they don't 334 00:25:32.329 --> 00:25:36.920 answer it. But then, but then they resolve the question at birth by 335 00:25:36.920 --> 00:25:41.039 allowing abortion to be legal throughout pregnancy. That they referred to the unborn child 336 00:25:41.240 --> 00:25:45.559 as a potential life. Yeah, and so on one hand they're saying, 337 00:25:45.599 --> 00:25:48.039 Oh, we don't know when life begins and that's not up to us and 338 00:25:48.200 --> 00:25:52.470 side stepping the question, and on the other hand they're saying it's not life, 339 00:25:52.470 --> 00:25:56.150 it's potential, like yeah, so they're kind of talking out of both 340 00:25:56.230 --> 00:25:59.470 sides of their mouth there. And then, you know, scientifically, come 341 00:25:59.549 --> 00:26:03.740 on, scientifically, an unborn child and embryo is, I go, a 342 00:26:03.819 --> 00:26:08.380 fetus, whatever label you want to put on an unborn child, it is 343 00:26:10.220 --> 00:26:14.180 a separate entity than the mother. It is an organism by definition, if 344 00:26:14.339 --> 00:26:18.569 it is a separate organism than the mother, right, and that's just undisputable. 345 00:26:18.809 --> 00:26:22.569 Yeah, now you can talk about philosophically whether or not that life has 346 00:26:22.650 --> 00:26:26.369 value, and that's not what this podcast us is about, although maybe we'll 347 00:26:26.369 --> 00:26:30.250 do one in the future about that. Yeah, you can maybe talk philosophically 348 00:26:30.250 --> 00:26:34.079 about it, but science, scientifically, there is life in the womb and 349 00:26:34.359 --> 00:26:37.720 it's a separate life, it's a unique life. Then the mother, and 350 00:26:37.799 --> 00:26:45.160 so that question is well resolved for sure. And the whole idea of viability 351 00:26:45.480 --> 00:26:49.670 was part of that decision, of the Rov Wade decision and not knowing really 352 00:26:49.829 --> 00:26:52.670 when the child was viable, but thinking it was much, much later. 353 00:26:52.710 --> 00:26:56.430 Yeah, that and it really was. I mean whether the child could survive 354 00:26:56.509 --> 00:27:02.619 with medical intervention was much later back then. But now we have ultrasounds. 355 00:27:02.619 --> 00:27:06.619 We didn't have in fact, let me, let me mention talking about that. 356 00:27:06.700 --> 00:27:10.940 We the ultrasound. I was actually training a doctor today, okay, 357 00:27:11.299 --> 00:27:15.769 and as a subposition to become a sidewalk counselor really, really great woman. 358 00:27:15.809 --> 00:27:18.250 And she said, and she's around my age so she said, when she 359 00:27:19.130 --> 00:27:23.730 was starting her her studies, her medical study, she said they're there were 360 00:27:23.730 --> 00:27:26.890 an ultrasounds, or if they were, they were so rudimentary. And she 361 00:27:26.970 --> 00:27:33.920 said we, we believed, we doctors believed it really was a clump of 362 00:27:33.079 --> 00:27:40.480 cells. That's how she was trained. She bought the whole Rov Wade Movement 363 00:27:40.680 --> 00:27:44.950 and the and the socalled pro choice movement because she believed that lie, that 364 00:27:45.029 --> 00:27:48.230 it was only a clump of cells and that's what medical science kind of was 365 00:27:48.750 --> 00:27:52.750 showing at the time. But we know for a fact that just it was 366 00:27:52.869 --> 00:27:56.069 so inaccurate and we have proof now. We can look at ultra sounds. 367 00:27:56.150 --> 00:28:00.299 We can see it's not a clump of sound. Absolutely. We've seen plenty 368 00:28:00.339 --> 00:28:06.140 of ultrasounds. You can see an ultrasound at six seven weeks along. Now, 369 00:28:06.220 --> 00:28:08.819 six weeks baby's very small. Basically what you can pick up is the 370 00:28:08.900 --> 00:28:12.089 heartbeat, but you can see that very clearly. Nine weeks. I remember 371 00:28:12.170 --> 00:28:17.410 seeing what my wife was pregnant with our twins, Abigail and Bethany. She 372 00:28:17.529 --> 00:28:22.210 showed me the first ultrasound. I wasn't there. Actually it was kind of 373 00:28:22.450 --> 00:28:23.569 I won't get into that story, but it was kind of unique story. 374 00:28:23.569 --> 00:28:26.089 We knew she was pregnant. She worked at a hospital at the time, 375 00:28:26.089 --> 00:28:30.920 so she slipped over because she knew the lady that worked in the ultrasound area 376 00:28:30.400 --> 00:28:34.119 and she's got to see really quick peek at our baby and little as she 377 00:28:34.200 --> 00:28:38.599 know, we actually had two. That was a pretty amazing story and anyway, 378 00:28:38.720 --> 00:28:41.309 Long Story Short, she had a video of it, seeing those two 379 00:28:41.349 --> 00:28:45.230 babies on that ultrasounde. I've never seen twin. I've seen a couple of 380 00:28:45.230 --> 00:28:48.869 ultrasounds at that point, but I've never seen too. Yeah, babies in 381 00:28:48.910 --> 00:28:52.190 the woman. I remember seeing their little arms moving back and forth. I 382 00:28:52.269 --> 00:28:56.700 remember seeing their little hearts beating, you know, separate heartbeats and all of 383 00:28:56.779 --> 00:29:00.619 that. I share all that to say that at nine weeks along, I'm 384 00:29:00.660 --> 00:29:04.819 a dude that doesn't have medical expertise and I can com plainly see on that 385 00:29:04.900 --> 00:29:08.859 ultrasound right, those were two separate lives, right, and those were human 386 00:29:08.900 --> 00:29:11.890 being. Yeah, and you know what I hear all the time from our 387 00:29:11.930 --> 00:29:18.529 opposition out on the sidewalk when I'll describe what I've seen on the many I've 388 00:29:18.529 --> 00:29:21.849 seen hundreds of ultrasounds now now I'm out I've been out there a long time, 389 00:29:22.569 --> 00:29:29.000 and they say we're making it up and that this is all a lie. 390 00:29:29.440 --> 00:29:33.960 And that is the attempt, as what happened in Rovy Wade, to 391 00:29:33.319 --> 00:29:40.829 dehumanize that precious little baby, because otherwise it's monstrous. It's monstrous with their 392 00:29:41.789 --> 00:29:45.630 suggesting should be a right. Yeah, which mean is monstrous. It is 393 00:29:45.829 --> 00:29:48.789 monstrous. And that brings to the last one. That of these that we're 394 00:29:48.829 --> 00:29:53.059 going to discuss about is a constitution. The court describes the right to abortion 395 00:29:53.380 --> 00:29:59.819 as fundamental yeah, and so the Supreme Court has found that there are certain 396 00:29:59.859 --> 00:30:07.289 fundamental rights which are either explicitly expressed or implied in the constitution. They're considered 397 00:30:07.369 --> 00:30:15.329 deeply rooted in the history of the American people and some of those rights fundamental 398 00:30:15.410 --> 00:30:18.569 rights. So listen to this. Okay, free exercise of religion, the 399 00:30:18.690 --> 00:30:26.319 right to marry, the right to a fair trial and equal protection. Yeah, 400 00:30:26.359 --> 00:30:30.359 and every fundamental right comes under a there's a strict scrutiny. Listen to 401 00:30:30.440 --> 00:30:34.079 the those that list of fundamental rights. And now add to that list the 402 00:30:34.160 --> 00:30:40.390 right to kill an unborn child. Yeah, this is a fundamental right. 403 00:30:41.190 --> 00:30:45.430 Is All of the fundamental rights? God, right. All the fundamental rights 404 00:30:45.589 --> 00:30:51.059 listed were positives, things that every one should equally enjoy, that there should 405 00:30:51.059 --> 00:30:55.420 be justice for all, the law equally applied. So let's talk a little 406 00:30:55.500 --> 00:30:57.740 real quick about the results of Rov Wade. Many of you guys knows. 407 00:30:59.140 --> 00:31:00.980 Yeah, that's good. You guys know that since one thousand nine hundred and 408 00:31:00.980 --> 00:31:07.529 seventy three we've killed, it's been about sixty five million unborn children in the 409 00:31:07.609 --> 00:31:11.410 womb forty seven years. About sixty five million in our country, here in 410 00:31:11.450 --> 00:31:15.769 the United States of American, our country. And again, that grieves the 411 00:31:15.890 --> 00:31:19.640 heart of the Lord. Yeah, these children are made in God's image and 412 00:31:19.759 --> 00:31:26.480 it's not that. We've killed these sixty five million and and that's all there 413 00:31:26.559 --> 00:31:30.240 is to it. As a nation, we've put our stamp of approval on 414 00:31:30.359 --> 00:31:34.390 that. We've liked this language that we talked about, called it a fundamental 415 00:31:34.470 --> 00:31:40.589 right of a person to kill their unborn child. We've rejected the humanity. 416 00:31:41.630 --> 00:31:45.589 We did that in the dread Scott decision in the Supreme Court. We did 417 00:31:45.670 --> 00:31:48.940 that as it concerns Africans who were brought over here in others who were brought 418 00:31:48.940 --> 00:31:52.059 over here and sold, bought and sold as slaves. We rejected their humanity 419 00:31:53.099 --> 00:31:56.259 and that grieve the heart of God. And it's just my theory. You 420 00:31:56.339 --> 00:32:00.099 guys can argue with me if you want to, but I believe the civil 421 00:32:00.180 --> 00:32:04.769 war was God's judgment on this nation for what we did through slavery here in 422 00:32:04.809 --> 00:32:09.450 America. It was ultimately rectified in one sense through that bloody civil war, 423 00:32:09.569 --> 00:32:13.529 but that was the judgment of God on this nation for what we did, 424 00:32:14.130 --> 00:32:19.039 and we should expect no less unless God would be merciful, and he's merciful 425 00:32:19.079 --> 00:32:21.160 and he's kind. In the church. We need to be crying out to 426 00:32:21.200 --> 00:32:24.480 God for mercy for our nation. But when we've killed sixty five million of 427 00:32:24.599 --> 00:32:30.990 our own unborn children in the womb. Yeah, that is a grievous effect 428 00:32:30.069 --> 00:32:34.589 of this rovwight. Again, it was something that we put from the highest 429 00:32:34.589 --> 00:32:37.910 level of government, our stamp of approve alonge. Yeah, and God's not 430 00:32:38.029 --> 00:32:42.589 okay with that now. He's a god of Justice and he cannot turn a 431 00:32:42.630 --> 00:32:46.259 blind eye to what has happened. A million a year is yeah, baby's 432 00:32:46.299 --> 00:32:50.299 are killed, correct. Yeah, million, million here. Yeah, I 433 00:32:50.299 --> 00:32:52.140 mean I state, United States, American. Those are ones that are accounted 434 00:32:52.180 --> 00:32:55.660 for. Right. There are some states that don't keep very good accounts of 435 00:32:55.700 --> 00:33:01.569 how many abortions are taking place, and so sixty five millions maybe the best 436 00:33:01.809 --> 00:33:06.130 estimate that's out there. Yeah, but it's likely more than that. And 437 00:33:06.170 --> 00:33:09.569 then worldwide through abortion and me we're talking probably what billions of people that have 438 00:33:09.650 --> 00:33:13.160 been murdered. Yeah, by abortion. Yes, one thing, one of 439 00:33:13.200 --> 00:33:17.519 the things that we say within love life is that this is the number one 440 00:33:17.839 --> 00:33:22.000 cause of death in the United States. It's not heart disease, it's not 441 00:33:22.119 --> 00:33:25.200 cancer, as grievous as those things are and as many lives as they take, 442 00:33:25.279 --> 00:33:30.549 which is terrible, but abortion far exceeds the numbers the cancer and heart 443 00:33:30.589 --> 00:33:37.670 disease and any other ailment that takes people's lives. Abortion supersedes all of them. 444 00:33:37.750 --> 00:33:42.140 It is the number one leading cause of death in our city, in 445 00:33:42.380 --> 00:33:45.779 our state, in the United States of America and in the world. Yeah, 446 00:33:45.940 --> 00:33:51.099 and that's just the unborn babies. That's not to talk about the carnage 447 00:33:51.140 --> 00:33:57.890 that it causes in the families and the women themselves, which is overwhelming. 448 00:33:57.970 --> 00:34:01.130 Yeah, and the the aftermath, the effects, the terrible effects, and 449 00:34:01.329 --> 00:34:05.329 at the destruction of the family. Yeah, absolutely. So. Yeah, 450 00:34:05.329 --> 00:34:09.159 there's a terrible legacy from from rov waite. It has had some pretty devastating 451 00:34:09.280 --> 00:34:15.159 results. Yeah. Well, let's let's go ahead and jump into what if 452 00:34:15.360 --> 00:34:21.760 this new justice, yeah, is confirmed? Yeah, what if the legislative 453 00:34:21.800 --> 00:34:25.789 body, like is designed in the constitution, approves this, confirms this justice, 454 00:34:27.070 --> 00:34:30.469 just as Amy Coney Barrett. Yeah, and she sits on the Supreme 455 00:34:30.550 --> 00:34:34.230 Court. Yeah. Yeah, will Rov Wade be overturned? Yeah, so 456 00:34:34.429 --> 00:34:37.550 trump, in two thousand and sixteen said it was part of his platform that 457 00:34:37.630 --> 00:34:42.139 he was definitely going to be one of his goals was to overturn Rovy Wade, 458 00:34:42.219 --> 00:34:46.699 okay, and he vowed to appoint justices who would overturn Rovy Wade. 459 00:34:47.579 --> 00:34:52.889 He said he hoped that that would happen automatically because he was going to put 460 00:34:52.969 --> 00:34:58.650 pro life justices on the court. And then he even said, which you've 461 00:34:58.690 --> 00:35:01.849 already said, because you're more of a scholar, constitutional scholar, than me, 462 00:35:02.289 --> 00:35:06.929 that it will go back to the states. Yeah, that the states 463 00:35:06.969 --> 00:35:12.639 would then make the determination. So, Amy Coney Bear, am I saying 464 00:35:12.639 --> 00:35:19.119 her name right? Jamie Coney Barrett has spoken openly about her Catholic faith. 465 00:35:19.639 --> 00:35:25.269 She was asked, as many circuit court judges were asked, what they felt 466 00:35:25.269 --> 00:35:30.909 about what their personal views on Rov Wade was or were, and she said 467 00:35:31.469 --> 00:35:37.900 that all nominees are united in their belief that what they think about a precedent 468 00:35:37.420 --> 00:35:43.099 should not bear on how they decide cases. So what that means is that 469 00:35:43.340 --> 00:35:49.820 the precedent is set by Rov Wade that abortion is allowed in in our nation. 470 00:35:49.900 --> 00:35:54.849 And and the the court upheld that precedent in another, another case. 471 00:35:54.969 --> 00:35:59.449 I forget when that happened, but it's the case where case Casey is the 472 00:35:59.489 --> 00:36:02.969 name of that case. Okay. And and so there's at least two precedents. 473 00:36:04.090 --> 00:36:07.360 And here whod versus Casey correct and herrect in one thousand nine hundred and 474 00:36:07.360 --> 00:36:15.679 ninety two correct. So can can the precedent be be overturned and and it? 475 00:36:15.079 --> 00:36:21.150 Or can can the court go against a a precedent? And and we're 476 00:36:21.190 --> 00:36:24.670 going to talk about that a little bit more thoroughly in in just a second. 477 00:36:25.590 --> 00:36:31.630 But if Barrett is confirmed, which it looks like she probably will be, 478 00:36:31.829 --> 00:36:37.980 okay, probably before the election even, and the court indeed overturns the 479 00:36:37.099 --> 00:36:42.820 precedent of Rovy Wade, and then the case the plan parenthood versus Casey, 480 00:36:43.340 --> 00:36:45.380 the issue would be left to the states, which would set up, of 481 00:36:45.460 --> 00:36:51.969 course, intense fights in state legislators and legal observers said, leading to an 482 00:36:52.050 --> 00:36:55.489 even more patchwork system. This is the a pro choice person right is, 483 00:36:55.530 --> 00:37:00.920 by the way, where abortion rights hinche almost entirely on where a person lives. 484 00:37:01.079 --> 00:37:06.639 Yeah, so I if she's confirmed, there is going to be a 485 00:37:06.800 --> 00:37:13.159 majority of conservative justices who have already indicated they would be eager to get an 486 00:37:13.199 --> 00:37:19.630 abortion case up all the way through to the Supreme Court and that they they 487 00:37:19.909 --> 00:37:27.230 certainly believe that precedent can be challenged. Yeah, in in the Supreme Court. 488 00:37:27.349 --> 00:37:31.539 In lower courts, no, but in the Supreme Court it can be, 489 00:37:31.739 --> 00:37:36.860 and that's how bad laws get changed. Yeah, absolutely, and that's 490 00:37:36.900 --> 00:37:39.340 the wrong one of the things that the Supreme Court does, yeah, is 491 00:37:39.420 --> 00:37:45.409 challenge precedent that is set by these district courts or whatever. Right, right, 492 00:37:45.530 --> 00:37:47.929 hey, come up to them through these different areas. So I didn't 493 00:37:47.929 --> 00:37:51.889 know a lot about this as as I'm learning more about it. But but 494 00:37:52.369 --> 00:37:57.650 so, what about precedents in challenging Rov Wade and and most people like I 495 00:37:58.289 --> 00:38:02.320 believed that decisions of the Supreme Court could, could not be reverse? But 496 00:38:02.440 --> 00:38:07.639 they are. They're often reversed. Look at slave very yeah, and and 497 00:38:07.079 --> 00:38:14.269 the ights of of African Americans. Now. So it's the it's actually just 498 00:38:14.429 --> 00:38:19.789 like you said, it's the courts duty, yeah, to reverse wrongfull prior 499 00:38:20.269 --> 00:38:23.269 decisions. Yeah, yeah, it's not the courts duty to make new law, 500 00:38:24.349 --> 00:38:29.980 but it is their decision to look at what is the law of the 501 00:38:30.019 --> 00:38:32.739 land. Yeah, and if it's raw or or past decisions, and if 502 00:38:32.739 --> 00:38:37.179 they're wrong, they decided to correct that. Yeah. No, one of 503 00:38:37.219 --> 00:38:43.610 the things that has to be considered. When commentator, political pundent guy said, 504 00:38:44.130 --> 00:38:46.489 when you're talking about and this is in no way a plug for Donald 505 00:38:46.530 --> 00:38:51.289 Trump, and in no way am I saying you don't know God if you 506 00:38:51.329 --> 00:38:53.409 don't vote for him, but what I am saying is when you vote for 507 00:38:53.449 --> 00:38:57.920 a president, we have to think of it in terms of your voting for 508 00:38:58.000 --> 00:39:00.800 a worldview. Right, when you're voting, if you vote for Donald Trump, 509 00:39:00.800 --> 00:39:04.719 you're voting for a worldview, whether you like it or not. You 510 00:39:04.880 --> 00:39:07.519 are, if you vote for Joe Biden. You might like the guy, 511 00:39:07.599 --> 00:39:09.989 you might not, but in reality you're voting for a worldview and it what 512 00:39:10.190 --> 00:39:15.070 comes with that, which is the way the constitution was designed, is when 513 00:39:15.070 --> 00:39:21.190 you're voting for trump's worldview, he's going to nominate judges that are in line 514 00:39:21.230 --> 00:39:24.300 with that worldview. Now you again. We can debate whether or not trump 515 00:39:24.340 --> 00:39:28.460 has changed his worldview over the years. He used to be a pro abortion 516 00:39:28.579 --> 00:39:32.420 Democrat for a long time, and I think that's undisputable. But it does 517 00:39:32.539 --> 00:39:37.579 seem that at least maybe it's the pender de voters. Probably is that. 518 00:39:37.699 --> 00:39:40.449 He's maybe a part, but he certainly is the pro most pro life president 519 00:39:40.530 --> 00:39:45.809 we've ever had in his that his actions have children, that he is supportive 520 00:39:45.809 --> 00:39:50.610 of the pro life agenda. Yeah, and so he certainly has been more 521 00:39:50.650 --> 00:39:54.320 vocal and more willing to nominate justice has that would be in line with the 522 00:39:54.440 --> 00:40:00.119 stance that would protect unborn children. And I say all that to say when 523 00:40:00.159 --> 00:40:04.000 you vote for someone like Donald Trump, someone who would elect or not elect 524 00:40:04.159 --> 00:40:09.590 but would nominate justice, is your vote for a worldview. And these justices 525 00:40:10.150 --> 00:40:14.510 are lifetime appointees. Once they're there, there there for lifetime. So you're 526 00:40:14.550 --> 00:40:20.349 looking at if you're voting for a guy who's going to elect or nominate conservative 527 00:40:20.389 --> 00:40:22.500 justice, is you're voting for somebody. It's going to put people that are 528 00:40:22.500 --> 00:40:25.219 going to be in that position of power and holding that Conservative, conservative stance 529 00:40:25.619 --> 00:40:29.300 for a long time. Right, right, that's that's a good thing. 530 00:40:29.380 --> 00:40:31.940 YEA, as we need some kind of I mean, listen, that the 531 00:40:32.019 --> 00:40:37.090 whole Congress could could shift, yeah, to be a bunch of leftist socialist. 532 00:40:37.929 --> 00:40:44.489 The executive branch could be given over to leftist socialist but if we've got 533 00:40:44.530 --> 00:40:46.889 a supreme court, that's going to hold back the tide of that garbage and 534 00:40:47.130 --> 00:40:50.960 that's at least going to keep us for a little while as a nation from 535 00:40:50.960 --> 00:40:58.440 becoming fullblown communist Socialist, communist Socialist Nation. And truly that's the beauty and 536 00:40:58.599 --> 00:41:04.280 the genius of what our forefathers did and how they set up, I. 537 00:41:04.630 --> 00:41:07.750 The way our country would be run in the branches of government to be checks 538 00:41:07.789 --> 00:41:15.469 and balances on each other. So okay. So if overturned, then is 539 00:41:15.510 --> 00:41:19.019 abortion abolished? I just want to say I just heard in a podcast, 540 00:41:19.380 --> 00:41:22.219 or maybe it was on the news, Biden said that if that happened he 541 00:41:22.380 --> 00:41:29.019 would bring a bill to Congress to legalize abortion national so he's talking about yeah, 542 00:41:29.300 --> 00:41:32.090 federal turned. He's already he's ready to pass federal law. That will 543 00:41:32.449 --> 00:41:37.610 that will be what Roady Wade was as the Supreme Court decision. He would 544 00:41:37.730 --> 00:41:40.449 turn it into federal law. That's it. That he has said he would 545 00:41:40.449 --> 00:41:45.090 do that. So it's over too. What happened? I mean I think 546 00:41:45.090 --> 00:41:47.400 I answered that question that the very beginning. WILL ABORTION BE ABOLISHED? If 547 00:41:47.400 --> 00:41:52.199 rovy Wade is overturned. NOPE, yeah, it'll go back to the states, 548 00:41:52.559 --> 00:41:55.440 and there's till there be states. Yeah, that well, you're about 549 00:41:55.440 --> 00:42:00.079 to talk about that. Weell be states that banned abortion. Would you say? 550 00:42:00.119 --> 00:42:02.469 Yeah, when he numbers two thousand and twenty two are likely to be 551 00:42:02.590 --> 00:42:06.590 an abortion. Yeah, you guys probably know what some of those states are. 552 00:42:06.670 --> 00:42:08.670 Probably listen to my I think South Carolina would be one, Georgia would 553 00:42:08.670 --> 00:42:12.909 likely be one, Alabama would be one of a lot of these states. 554 00:42:12.989 --> 00:42:15.780 Like Kentucky, they only have one abortion clinic. I think maybe that now 555 00:42:15.820 --> 00:42:19.059 they have to. But Mississippi that has one abortion clinic. Yeah, those 556 00:42:19.139 --> 00:42:22.260 that would likely be the case. But abortion still would not be abolished completely 557 00:42:22.380 --> 00:42:27.579 in the United States of American and you can believe for sure that there's going 558 00:42:27.619 --> 00:42:31.889 to be some venomous fights even in these states that would abolish abortion. In 559 00:42:32.730 --> 00:42:37.289 who knows that acled you, the American Communist Lawyers Union will get in there 560 00:42:37.329 --> 00:42:40.130 and do their thing. It's going to be a vicious fight, no doubt 561 00:42:40.170 --> 00:42:44.639 about it. But I do think this. We do need to overturn this 562 00:42:44.800 --> 00:42:49.920 thing. Rovywade needs to be rejected as the lie of the land, because 563 00:42:49.920 --> 00:42:54.000 that's what it is and it's again mostly to show the Lord that we're repenting 564 00:42:54.880 --> 00:42:59.150 and then these things could be mitigated in the states. But I'll say this. 565 00:42:59.389 --> 00:43:01.309 I'll go as far to say, and this is a point in which 566 00:43:01.829 --> 00:43:07.710 our pro abortion opposition, folks that even online or out there on the sidewalk 567 00:43:07.750 --> 00:43:08.949 or whatever, that say, well, you know, if you abolish abortion, 568 00:43:08.989 --> 00:43:12.590 people are still going to have abortions. Yeah, I know that we 569 00:43:12.750 --> 00:43:15.380 do. People are still going to sin it. I always will respond with 570 00:43:15.739 --> 00:43:21.139 well, we abolish slavery and people still own slaves. We had just a 571 00:43:21.179 --> 00:43:28.050 few podcasts go we had the brother from justice ministries talking about basically slavery. 572 00:43:28.090 --> 00:43:30.929 Right, sex trafficking and human trafficking is slavery. It's what it is. 573 00:43:31.050 --> 00:43:35.409 It's buying and selling humans as property. Yeah, people still do that. 574 00:43:35.610 --> 00:43:39.570 Need's illegal. People are going to have illegal abortions. That's true. Abortion 575 00:43:39.690 --> 00:43:45.400 ultimately is not going to be completely abolished until the Lord Jesus comes through the 576 00:43:45.480 --> 00:43:49.280 clouds and establishes his kingdom on the Earth. Right, that's the only time 577 00:43:49.400 --> 00:43:52.480 in which abortion will be abolished. However, we as a we as human 578 00:43:52.519 --> 00:43:58.670 beings, but especially we as Christians, have a duty to uphold God's law 579 00:43:59.670 --> 00:44:02.909 and bring man's law to line up with God's law. There's this mentality that 580 00:44:02.989 --> 00:44:07.190 somehow God's law needs to be lowered and brought down to equal our standards. 581 00:44:07.309 --> 00:44:12.099 Know what's intended it, even with our Constitution. I'm not saying all of 582 00:44:12.139 --> 00:44:15.539 our founding fathers were godly people. There were some, certainly some ungodly people 583 00:44:15.539 --> 00:44:17.940 that, but they did recognize that God's law should be the highest law, 584 00:44:19.500 --> 00:44:22.019 and God's Law is simple. Exodus, Chapter Twenty. You guys can read 585 00:44:22.019 --> 00:44:25.050 it. You should memorize the ten commandments there. Next it is chapter twenty. 586 00:44:25.449 --> 00:44:30.010 The commandment number six is you shall not murder. Yeah, and that's 587 00:44:30.050 --> 00:44:32.369 what abortion is. It's murder. So our law needs to come up to 588 00:44:32.409 --> 00:44:36.769 where God's law is. Rather than justifying the murder of unborn children, we 589 00:44:36.889 --> 00:44:38.599 need to agree with God and say it's wrong and, as a nation, 590 00:44:38.639 --> 00:44:43.480 will repenting of it. That's right. Turning away from yeah, and again, 591 00:44:43.519 --> 00:44:47.119 as Christians it is our duty to bring the Gospel to those who in 592 00:44:47.239 --> 00:44:51.920 need. Women go into abortion clinics because they don't know the Lord. We 593 00:44:52.039 --> 00:44:55.030 need to bring the Gospel to them. So, while abortion is legal in 594 00:44:55.590 --> 00:45:00.510 these United States of America and they are still abortion clinics. There's over seven 595 00:45:00.550 --> 00:45:04.030 hundred of them in the United States of America currently. We need to be 596 00:45:04.110 --> 00:45:07.659 there. We need to be there pleading on behalf of those unborn children, 597 00:45:07.219 --> 00:45:12.820 giving them a voice. Yeah, and, in one sense, reinstating their 598 00:45:12.900 --> 00:45:16.099 humanity, though society has said they're not human beings, they're not precious, 599 00:45:16.139 --> 00:45:19.980 they don't have value. We need to be speaking the truth of God, 600 00:45:20.059 --> 00:45:23.210 in opposition to the lies of the world, in the enemy that these human 601 00:45:23.250 --> 00:45:27.969 beings, these babies, do have value and that they do deserve to be 602 00:45:28.010 --> 00:45:31.050 protect it. And we do that. You and I and others do that 603 00:45:31.289 --> 00:45:34.769 right there on the front line. There's other ways to do it, certainly 604 00:45:35.250 --> 00:45:40.079 in conversations with people online, which it would be coming from the pulpit more 605 00:45:40.159 --> 00:45:43.400 often, I think, coming not all. That's, I think, a 606 00:45:43.599 --> 00:45:47.679 huge, huge, huge issue. Absolutely, and so this is this is 607 00:45:47.719 --> 00:45:52.949 our duty as Christians. Yeah, the the bodies of government have their job. 608 00:45:52.510 --> 00:45:57.190 Yeah, and the Bible tells us God has established these bodies of government, 609 00:45:57.869 --> 00:46:00.389 whether you like it or not. Yeah, this is God ordained what 610 00:46:00.510 --> 00:46:04.940 we have in the United States, and the men will always pervert and twist 611 00:46:05.980 --> 00:46:10.019 let the let the bodies of government do what they do. Elect people who 612 00:46:10.059 --> 00:46:13.659 are going to be in line with your values. Again, those world views 613 00:46:13.739 --> 00:46:16.019 your work. You're electing a worldview, not just a person. Right, 614 00:46:17.099 --> 00:46:22.130 but it cannot stop there. If it stops it, you just check in 615 00:46:22.210 --> 00:46:24.250 a box. If it stops it, you just go into the ballad box. 616 00:46:24.650 --> 00:46:28.730 Yeah, then that's not you doing your Christian Dude. Your Christian duty 617 00:46:28.889 --> 00:46:31.880 is proverbs thirty one, verses eight nine, open your mouth for the speechless, 618 00:46:31.920 --> 00:46:36.719 or Jesus Command, Love God and love your neighbor. Right, we're 619 00:46:36.719 --> 00:46:38.239 supposed to do that. That's that's our duty. So I'm going to just 620 00:46:38.400 --> 00:46:43.960 wrap this thing up with a few scriptures. Okay, because we can go 621 00:46:44.119 --> 00:46:46.349 on and on about stuff we don't know anything about, right, like judicial 622 00:46:46.590 --> 00:46:51.590 the judicial system. Maybe we've helped you guys a little bit. But we're 623 00:46:51.590 --> 00:46:54.070 going to put this article out. This is basically a compilation of other articles, 624 00:46:54.110 --> 00:46:57.670 right, it is. It's not something I've really written. I've I've 625 00:46:57.789 --> 00:47:02.460 copied and pasted all of these major areas and given the references so people can 626 00:47:02.500 --> 00:47:06.300 do further study on the ground. So we'll copy paste, sure, copy 627 00:47:06.340 --> 00:47:09.380 and paste this into a word press blog for our right, for our website, 628 00:47:09.460 --> 00:47:13.860 sidewalks for lifecom, and you guys can check it out and they'll be 629 00:47:13.940 --> 00:47:16.650 links there to the the whole articles that you draw from. Right. But 630 00:47:16.769 --> 00:47:21.289 in wrapping this thing up, let's look at a few scriptures, okay, 631 00:47:22.369 --> 00:47:25.570 and Psalm one hundred and eighteen, verse eight, is one that you have 632 00:47:25.690 --> 00:47:31.000 written down here within this this kind of sniplet article here. Okay, so 633 00:47:31.039 --> 00:47:35.400 I want to read that because, guys, we have to understand what are, 634 00:47:35.719 --> 00:47:37.679 what our angle should be as believers. Right, who should we put 635 00:47:37.679 --> 00:47:40.840 our trust in? That we put our trust in man. Yeah, do 636 00:47:40.960 --> 00:47:46.150 we put our trust in the judicial branch, in Amy Coney Barrett or Donald 637 00:47:46.150 --> 00:47:51.349 Trump? Wow, we're going to be right pretty dissatisfied if we do that. 638 00:47:51.429 --> 00:47:53.949 Right. And so, Psalm one hundred and eighteen, in verse eight, 639 00:47:54.510 --> 00:47:59.860 it is better to trust in the Lord then to put confidence in man. 640 00:48:00.699 --> 00:48:04.300 It is better to verse nine. Is Better to trust the Lord than 641 00:48:04.340 --> 00:48:10.019 to put confidence in princes. M It's talking about rulers. Princes is synonymous 642 00:48:10.019 --> 00:48:15.010 with rulers, people in positions of power. We should put our trust in 643 00:48:15.090 --> 00:48:17.369 the Lord. Our confidence has to be in him. And I was the 644 00:48:17.449 --> 00:48:22.409 other day, praying just through the potential for the election, the elections coming 645 00:48:22.449 --> 00:48:27.010 up November. The third got in vote. I think it's your Christian Dud 646 00:48:27.130 --> 00:48:29.239 to do so. I'm not going to tell you to vote for but, 647 00:48:29.599 --> 00:48:35.559 you know, vote your worldview, of course. And I was thinking about 648 00:48:35.559 --> 00:48:37.000 this and praying through this and just thinking, okay, how am I going 649 00:48:37.039 --> 00:48:42.469 to feel if Joe Biden wins? Yeah, and I looked back, just 650 00:48:43.030 --> 00:48:45.030 in my heart, into my mind, thinking how did I feel when Barack 651 00:48:45.070 --> 00:48:50.389 Obama was elected? I was, I was it almost like, you know, 652 00:48:50.469 --> 00:48:52.030 my football team loss. You Know How some people like if they're football 653 00:48:52.070 --> 00:48:55.300 team loses, they have a bad week, they have a bad money going 654 00:48:55.380 --> 00:48:59.260 right, deep depression. They going to deep depression, but gonna feel like 655 00:48:59.260 --> 00:49:01.539 that. I'm going to feel and I remember back when Barack Obama was elected, 656 00:49:02.099 --> 00:49:06.860 I didn't feel like that. I wasn't discouraged in the least. Actually, 657 00:49:06.860 --> 00:49:10.409 I wasn't surprised. He was a total leftist, you know, Looney 658 00:49:10.449 --> 00:49:14.570 Bird, and I really think brought our country in our in a wrong direction. 659 00:49:14.610 --> 00:49:17.809 Yeah, but my confidence is not in him. It wasn't in who's 660 00:49:17.849 --> 00:49:21.809 even running against him. Was it John McCain or something? Like that. 661 00:49:21.929 --> 00:49:25.280 I don't even remember New Gingrich, I don't remember, but one of that 662 00:49:25.559 --> 00:49:28.960 it was one of those guys. Yeah, one of those losers. He 663 00:49:29.039 --> 00:49:30.199 wasn't going to do a whole lot of wars. Anyway. I want to 664 00:49:30.199 --> 00:49:32.000 come Lea Sup but you know what I'm saying. So, yeah, they're 665 00:49:32.159 --> 00:49:37.519 there. They weren't going to be my security any rate. Right, and 666 00:49:37.920 --> 00:49:40.869 Donald Trump is not my security. Right. So if Joe Biden becomes president, 667 00:49:40.909 --> 00:49:45.389 yeah, I could. Yeah, I'll be a little disappointed. I'll 668 00:49:45.389 --> 00:49:49.789 be a little disappointed that we as a nation could it make a better decision. 669 00:49:50.469 --> 00:49:52.099 But I'm also I'm looking at Donald Trump, I'm thinking he's not the 670 00:49:52.380 --> 00:49:57.500 greatest guy in the world and honestly, our nation could be destroyed and any 671 00:49:57.579 --> 00:50:00.139 ruler should end up, any terrible ruler could end up destroying our nation. 672 00:50:00.380 --> 00:50:04.539 But I think, I think the fact is, whether Joe Biden is president 673 00:50:04.539 --> 00:50:07.969 or Donald Trump's president, somebody is going to be burning something. Yeah, 674 00:50:07.010 --> 00:50:12.329 somebody's going to be looting riots and yeah, yeah, it's going to be 675 00:50:12.409 --> 00:50:16.250 it's going to be rough either way. So what I'm saying is my confidence 676 00:50:16.289 --> 00:50:21.090 is in the Lord, whether Joe Biden is president or not. Whether Donald 677 00:50:21.090 --> 00:50:23.239 Trump is president or not, I'm not going to be discouraged because I know 678 00:50:23.320 --> 00:50:30.039 that Jesus Christ is still on His throne. Jesus Christ is still the Lord 679 00:50:30.559 --> 00:50:34.599 of all of creation. If we know that and we truly possessed that in 680 00:50:34.679 --> 00:50:37.469 our soul, we understand, believe and trust that, we are able to 681 00:50:37.590 --> 00:50:43.070 impart that to others, and I think that it's our duty to bring that 682 00:50:43.269 --> 00:50:47.389 confidence and trust to others. Yeah, yeah, absolutely so. Another scripture 683 00:50:47.429 --> 00:50:52.219 here in Psalms. Psalms are so one, times are so good. Yeah, 684 00:50:52.539 --> 00:50:58.019 Psalm one hundred and eight and verse twelve, give US help from trouble, 685 00:50:58.340 --> 00:51:01.340 for the help of man is useless. MMM, through God we will 686 00:51:01.420 --> 00:51:07.250 do valiently, valiantly, for it is he who shall tread upon our enemies. 687 00:51:07.050 --> 00:51:09.010 So leave it up to God. Right, gave it up to the 688 00:51:09.130 --> 00:51:13.090 war. Right. You know, our enemies are not the Democrats, and 689 00:51:13.449 --> 00:51:15.329 some sense they are right. Their enemies of this country, in it this 690 00:51:15.530 --> 00:51:20.960 this Constitution, Republic that we live in. But ultimately our enemies as a 691 00:51:21.039 --> 00:51:24.639 believers, are spiritual and it's the Lord that's going to handle that stuff. 692 00:51:24.679 --> 00:51:28.880 We just have a duty to obey the Lord, to be a voice for 693 00:51:28.920 --> 00:51:32.909 these babies, to proclaim the Gospel and all that other stuff, overturning rovy 694 00:51:34.030 --> 00:51:38.070 Wade, abolishing abortion, all the other political stuff that can take place. 695 00:51:39.230 --> 00:51:42.949 We got to do our best to do what we can, vote for people 696 00:51:42.949 --> 00:51:45.750 that are in line with our worldview. But trust the Lord, yeah, 697 00:51:45.869 --> 00:51:47.659 right, so, and speak his truth. Yeah, that's so. The 698 00:51:47.699 --> 00:51:52.860 reality is this. We have to be faithful, to proclaim the Gospel, 699 00:51:53.139 --> 00:51:57.780 no matter who's in power, no matter how the Supreme Court is, no 700 00:51:57.940 --> 00:52:02.289 matter if the Supreme Court is a left of Supreme Court or a conservative Supreme 701 00:52:02.409 --> 00:52:07.050 Court. We have a duty to proclaim the gospel. And then just bringing 702 00:52:07.050 --> 00:52:15.289 up the rear here with Mica, Chapter Seven and in Verse Five. Okay, 703 00:52:15.000 --> 00:52:19.559 do not trust in a friend, do not put your confidence, and 704 00:52:19.639 --> 00:52:23.039 that's the key word, in a companion. Okay, guard the doors of 705 00:52:23.119 --> 00:52:28.719 your mouth from her who lies in your bosom, for son dishonors father, 706 00:52:28.840 --> 00:52:32.030 and daughter rises against mother, daughter in law against her mother in law, 707 00:52:32.469 --> 00:52:37.469 and a man's enemies are the men of his own household. Therefore, I 708 00:52:37.550 --> 00:52:38.829 will look to the Lord. This is this is the key here. I 709 00:52:38.869 --> 00:52:42.949 will look to the Lord and I will wait for the God of my salvation. 710 00:52:43.269 --> 00:52:45.739 My God will hear me. And the point of this is, yes, 711 00:52:46.099 --> 00:52:50.460 there's chaos and there's going to be chaos in this nation and no matter 712 00:52:50.500 --> 00:52:52.500 what happens with a Supreme Court, no matter what happens with the election, 713 00:52:52.860 --> 00:52:55.500 there's going to be a lot of chaos in our nation. Daughter in law 714 00:52:55.539 --> 00:53:00.409 against Darl I just had a new volunteer come out today whose son is actually 715 00:53:00.409 --> 00:53:06.530 going to be marrying a pro a pro choice person and she's not terribly happy 716 00:53:06.530 --> 00:53:08.409 with that. Yeah, he's obviously making a bad decision there, but there's 717 00:53:08.610 --> 00:53:13.320 there's some contention there with her potential daughter in law and it's going to be 718 00:53:13.639 --> 00:53:15.239 and it's like that. I'm hearing a lot of these stories, just people 719 00:53:15.280 --> 00:53:20.800 within their families fighting over the issue of life and pro choice, prolife, 720 00:53:20.920 --> 00:53:23.199 but other political issues of Blm stuff and all of that. Just a lot 721 00:53:23.280 --> 00:53:27.389 of infighting and families. It seems like it's ramped up even more and more 722 00:53:27.710 --> 00:53:30.030 and were and we try to find our confidence, like let's go talk to 723 00:53:30.150 --> 00:53:32.230 that, maybe they can tell us what we need to hear, or let's 724 00:53:32.230 --> 00:53:35.510 go talk to them, and this is these verses are saying to do that. 725 00:53:35.670 --> 00:53:38.230 Yeah, exactly, useless. Yeah, again, therefore, I will 726 00:53:38.230 --> 00:53:42.260 look to the Lord. Yeah, I will wait for the Lord of myselfation. 727 00:53:42.460 --> 00:53:45.500 Right, my God will hear me. Yeah. So, as believers 728 00:53:45.579 --> 00:53:47.539 in Jesus, our confidence has to be in him, not in the Supreme 729 00:53:47.659 --> 00:53:52.539 Court, not in whatever other entity that we want to look to, and 730 00:53:52.780 --> 00:53:55.409 our obedience in our legions has to be to the Lord. So I want 731 00:53:55.409 --> 00:54:00.289 to encourage you guys with that. Be Faithful. Don't put confidence in the 732 00:54:00.369 --> 00:54:04.329 flesh, don't put confidence in the Supreme Court. Do what you need to 733 00:54:04.369 --> 00:54:07.489 do as far as your duty and voting and praying. Certainly we need to 734 00:54:07.530 --> 00:54:10.679 be praying for our nation. Our pastor has encouraged us to pray every day 735 00:54:10.719 --> 00:54:15.880 at fourteen and in line with second chronicle fourteen, if my people, which 736 00:54:15.880 --> 00:54:19.360 are called by name, my name, will humble themselves and pray and turn 737 00:54:19.440 --> 00:54:22.679 from their wicked ways, she'd have to be awake at seven fourteen. Yep, 738 00:54:22.199 --> 00:54:24.389 fourteen in the morning, and so I have alarm set. So I 739 00:54:24.429 --> 00:54:28.110 just want to encourage you guys. Maybe you set your alarm s fourteen. 740 00:54:28.110 --> 00:54:30.869 He said pray a minute for our nation, that the heart of this nation 741 00:54:30.909 --> 00:54:32.869 would turn back to the Lord, and part of that again is overturning this 742 00:54:34.030 --> 00:54:37.030 rovyweight decision. But there's a lot of other things that, as a nation, 743 00:54:37.110 --> 00:54:38.219 we need to turn back to the Lord in. Yeah, so be 744 00:54:38.340 --> 00:54:42.659 praying for a nation, but put your confidence in the Lord. If you 745 00:54:42.739 --> 00:54:45.659 want to reach out to me, it's deep parks.
