Truths That Transform – The Moral Law of God


JESUS SAID IT WITH GREAT EXPLICITNESS WHEN HE DECLARED, “DID NOT MOSES GIVE YOU THE LAW, AND NONE OF YOU HAS KEPT IT.” D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES PRESENTS TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. THERE’S A PROFOUND
DISTRUST IN AMERICA OF THOSE WHOM WE EXPECT
TO UPHOLD JUSTICE. THIS WEEK ON TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM WE LOOK AT THE STATE OF JUSTICE AND
INTEGRITY IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. LIKE A LOT OF AMERICANS,
I’M VERY SUSPICIOUS OF MY OWN GOVERNMENT,
IT’S GOTTEN SO BIG. AND WE’LL CONSIDER WHY
THERE APPEARS TO BE VERY DEEP LEVELS OF CORRUPTION
WITHIN OUR OWN GOVERNMENT. SO MUCH HAS BECOME
POLITICIZED IN A VERY AGGRESSIVE WAY. WE ARE TAKING A LOOK AT
JUSTICE AND CORRUPTION- AND HOPE FOR THE FUTURE-
ALL ON TODAY’S TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. THIS IS TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. ♪ WELCOME TO TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM, A PRODUCTION OF D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES, WHERE WE ARE STANDING FOR TRUTH AND
DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. WE ARE FACING A
CRISIS IN OUR CULTURE. IT’S A CRISIS IN
CONFIDENCE, AS THE INSTITUTIONS WE EXPECT TO
ENFORCE JUSTICE AND UPHOLD THE LAW SEEM TO HAVE
INSTEAD BECOME INSTRUMENTS OF IDEOLOGICAL WARFARE. POWERFUL ENTITIES LIKE THE
JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, FBI, AND IRS HAVE SEEMINGLY
GONE ROGUE, AS BUREAUCRATS AND OPERATIVES WITHIN
GRIND POLITICAL AXES THROUGH GOVERNMENT FORCE. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM WE WILL
LOOK AT THIS TROUBLING PHENOMENON, AND YOU’LL SEE
HOW DEPARTING FROM GOD’S WORD HAS ENABLED IT. AND WE’LL SHARE SOME VITAL
NEW RESOURCES WITH YOU DESIGNED TO HELP US
RECAPTURE OUR LOST FREEDOM. AS WE BEGIN, DR. MATTHEW
SPALDING IS A VICE PRESIDENT AT HILLSDALE
COLLEGE’S WASHINGTON DC CAMPUS. A CONSTITUTIONAL EXPERT,
HE’S THE AUTHOR OF WE STILL HOLD THESE TRUTHS:
REDISCOVERING OUR PRINCIPLES,
RECLAIMING OUR FUTURE. HE RECENTLY SAT DOWN WITH
OUR OWN JOHN RABE TO DISCUSS THE STATE OF
OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THERE’S A LOT OF CONCERN,
I THINK, IN OUR NATION TODAY ABOUT OUR
GOVERNING STRUCTURES. ADDRESS THAT CRISIS OF
CONFIDENCE THAT I THINK PEOPLE ARE RIGHTLY
EXPERIENCING IN SOME OF THESE EXECUTIVE
BRANCH AGENCIES. PART OF IT IS TO JUST
REMEMBER FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, PART OF THE
AMERICAN CHARACTER WAS ALWAYS HAVE A CERTAIN
HEALTHY SKEPTICISM ABOUT GOVERNMENT, RIGHT? THAT’S THE AMERICAN
REVOLUTION SO THAT’S ALWAYS BEEN THERE, AND
ESSENTIALLY ITS PART OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM. RIGHT? THERE ARE CHECKS ON
GOVERNMENT; THE WHOLE ESSENCE OF IT IS TO PUT
BRAKES ON GOVERNMENT. PARTIALLY BECAUSE FROM THE
FOUNDING FORWARD AND IN THE FOUNDING YOU SEE VERY
CLEARLY WE HAVE DISTRUST OF HUMAN NATURE. THEY’RE PRONE
TO DO THINGS. WHETHER WE UNDERSTAND THAT
AS MAN’S SINFUL NATURE OR JUST HIS POLITICAL
PASSIONS, RIGHT. WE HAVE CHECKS
ON GOVERNMENT. SO THAT ESSENTIAL QUALITY
HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE. IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT
IS IMPROPER, SHALL I SAY. BUT OVER TIME, ESPECIALLY
OVER THE LAST HALF OF THIS 20TH CENTURY ESPECIALLY,
GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DOING MORE AND MORE
AND MORE THINGS. AND SO THE LIKELIHOOD OF
GOVERNMENT DOING MORE AND MORE THINGS BADLY
HAS BEEN INCREASING. ALSO OF LATE, IN THE
LAST 10-15 YEARS OR SO, GOVERNMENT IS DOING MORE
AND MORE THINGS AND INDIVIDUALS, EXECUTIVES,
PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION ARE
REALIZING THEY CAN DO MORE AND MORE THINGS WITHOUT
CONGRESS, IS INCREASING TEMPTATION TO POLITICIZE
THOSE OPERATIONS. SO IN THAT SENSE THE VERY
POLITICIZED FBI, WHICH I THINK WE’RE SEEING NOW IS
IN MANY WAYS A HARBINGER OF, OR A SIGNAL OF
A DEEPER PROBLEM. WHICH IS THAT MORE AND
MORE OF WHAT GOVERNMENT DOES IS OUTSIDE OF THE
NORMAL POLITICAL PROCESSES THAT WE CAN KIND OF CHECK. THEY’RE ACCUMULATING ALL
THESE POWERS OF GOVERNMENT WHICH OUGHT TO
BE SEPARATED. NOW IN THE MIDST OF THAT,
GIVEN HUMAN NATURE, THE TEMPTATION TO USE THAT FOR
POLITICAL PURPOSES, WHEN YOUR ENEMIES, YOUR
POLITICAL ENEMIES ARE POTENTIALLY WINNING AN
ELECTION THROUGH THE POPULAR BRANCHES, YOU CAN
BLOCK IT THROUGH EITHER EXECUTIVE POWER OR USING
JUDICIAL POWER, THAT TEMPTATION IS OLD
AS MAN HIMSELF. BUT THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT
THE CONSTITUTION, THE RULE OF LAW IS MEANT
TO PREVENT. AND THE PROBLEM IS NOW
IT’S NOT BEING PREVENTED. IT WOULD BE HARD TO ARGUE
AGAINST THE NOTION THAT THERE HAS BEEN AN EROSION
OF THE MORAL BASE OF THE NATION. AND WHEN YOU HAVE AN
EROSION OF THE MORAL BASE OF THE NATION, IT SEEMS
THAT THE ONLY THING LEFT IS SORT OF THAT NIETZCHIAN
IDEA OF THE WILL TO POWER, THE PURSUIT OF POWER,
AND IT SEEMS LIKE THAT’S DIRECTLY WHAT WE HAVE
PLAYING OUT HERE. WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A
SHARED MORAL CONSENSUS AS A NATION ANYMORE, IT’S
JUST WHO CAN GET TO THE LEVERS AND PULL
THEM FIRST. ISN’T THAT KIND OF WHAT
WE SEE PLAYING OUT? NO I THINK THAT’S RIGHT,
AND IF YOU THINK OF GOVERNMENT AS HAVING
CHECKS IN ITSELF THEN OF COURSE THE CHECK ON THAT
IN THE ULTIMATE LEGITIMACY BEHIND ALL OF THAT IS
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AND THEY NEED TO HAVE THE
TYPE OF CHARACTER AND CULTURAL BAGGAGE OR
STRENGTH, IF YOU WILL, OR ROOTEDNESS TO MAKE
GOOD MORAL DECISIONS. ABSOLUTELY. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT
FOR CHRISTIANS AND THOSE BROADLY WITH MORAL
CONCERNS ABOUT OUR CULTURE TO KEEP IN MIND HERE,
HOWEVER, THAT HOW DO YOU GET BACK TO THAT. WE CAN’T REMOVE OURSELVES FROM
THOSE POLITICAL QUESTIONS. GETTING THOSE RIGHT IS
IMPORTANT, BECAUSE THAT WILL ENTAIL A
DECENTRALIZATION OF GOVERNMENT’S AUTHORITY,
THE DIMINISHING OF ITS AUTHORITY, WHICH WILL
ALLOW FOR A FLOURISHING OF PRECISELY THOSE CULTURAL
INSTITUTIONS, WHICH YOU AND I BOTH KNOW ARE THE
ONES THAT ARE THE SOURCE OF THAT MORAL CHARACTER
AND THAT MORAL ROOTEDNESS THAT MAKE FOR NOT ONLY
GOOD SELF-GOVERNED CITIZENS, BUT GOOD MORAL
BELIEVING CITIZENS. DR. SPALDING, IT’S
ALWAYS A PLEASURE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR
INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE WE APPRECIATE YOU
BEING WITH US. THANK YOU. ONE OF THE MOST STRIKING
PARADOXES IN OUR CULTURE TODAY IS AN INCREASING
DEPENDENCE ON GOVERNMENT, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME WE
SEE A GROWING DISTRUST IN THE INSTITUTIONS OF
THAT SAME GOVERNMENT. BUT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT
HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE MAKE AN IDOL OF THEIR
GOVERNMENT AND HAND TOO MUCH POWER TO THE PEOPLE
WITHIN IT- PEOPLE WHO ARE MERELY SINNERS LIKE
ALL THE REST OF US. I’M JOINED NOW BY THE
DAUGHTER OF DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY, MY VERY GOOD
FRIEND JENNIFER KENNEDY CASSIDY. JENNIFER, YOUR DAD SAW THE
LAW OF GOD AS A KIND OF PATHWAY TO FREEDOM AND
THAT IS WAS THE ONLY TRUE FOUNDATION, THE ONLY
VIABLE FOUNDATION FOR SELF-GOVERNMENT. YOU’RE EXACTLY
RIGHT, FRANK. HE KNEW THAT A REJECTION
OF THAT LAW COULD ONLY LEAD TO TYRANNY. AMERICA’S FOUNDERS
KNEW THIS AS WELL. PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS SAID
THAT OUR CONSTITUTION WAS ONLY CAPABLE OF GOVERNING
A MORAL AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. IF WE REFUSE TO BE
GOVERNED BY GOD, WE WILL DEFINITELY BE GOVERNED
BY HUMAN BEINGS- AND GENERALLY BY THOSE WHO
SEEK INCREASING POWER OVER US. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHERE
WE FIND OURSELVES TODAY. WE HAVE CAST GOD AND HIS
WORD OUT OF PUBLIC LIFE, AND HAVE HANDED MORE AND
MORE POWER TO MORE HUMAN BEINGS- AND NOT
SURPRISINGLY, THEY ARE MISUSING AND
ABUSING THAT POWER. AS WE FACE THE PROSPECT OF
GOVERNMENT AGENCIES BEING USED AS TOOLS IN THE
CULTURE WAR, THERE IS A GOOD REASON TO FEAR THE
STRONG ARM OF GOVERNMENT. MY DAD NEVER TIRED OF
CALLING AMERICA BACK TO FREEDOM AND BACK TO TRUTH,
WHICH CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN CHRIST. IF WE ARE GOING TO REDEEM
OUR FREEDOM, WE WILL NEED TO ONCE AGAIN PUT
OURSELVES UNDER THE PERFECT GOVERNANCE
OF GOD HIMSELF. MY FATHER EXPLAINS, IN
THIS PORTION OF HIS ESSENTIAL MESSAGE, “THE
MORAL LAW OF GOD.” HOW FOOLISH HAVE MEN BEEN
WHO HAVE REFUSED TO READ OR TO HEED THE INSTRUCTION
BOOK THAT COMES WITH EVERY HUMAN BEING: THE
LAW OF OUR GOD. ONE THING THAT I WOULD
HAVE YOU TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE LAW OF GOD: YOU CANNOT
BREAK IT; YOU CAN ONLY BREAK YOURSELF UPON IT. GOD IS NOT AN ELECTED
KING, AND SHOULD ALL OF HUMANITY CONSPIRE
TOGETHER, THEY COULD NOT DIMINISH HIS POWER OR
HIS WILL BY ONE IOTA. TRAGICALLY, HOWEVER, DOWN
THROUGH THE CENTURIES OF HISTORY, INDIVIDUALS
AND NATIONS HAVE HURLED THEMSELVES AGAINST GOD’S
LAW, ONLY TO BREAK THEMSELVES INTO PIECES AND
THE FRAGMENTS HAVE FILLED OUR CEMETERIES, OUR
ASYLUMS, OUR PRISONS, AND OUR SKID ROWS. YOU CANNOT BREAK THE LAW
OF GOD; YOU CAN ONLY BREAK YOURSELF UPON IT. LISTEN, AMERICA! WAKE UP AND REPENT, LEST
THAT STONE GRIND THEE INTO DUST. “THOU SHALT” AND “THOU
SHALT NOT” IS THE VOICE OF THE ALMIGHTY. BUT WE LIVE TODAY IN WHAT
THE NEW TESTAMENT SAYS WILL OCCUR IN
THE LAST DAYS. IT WILL BE, THEY SAY,
AN AGE OF ANOMIA- LAWLESSNESS. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN SUCH
AN AGE OF LAWLESSNESS AS THAT IN WHICH
WE LIVE TODAY. MEN HAVE IGNORED THE
LAWS OF GOD, THEY HAVE JETTISONED HIS
COMMANDMENTS, AND THEY HAVE PLUNGED THEMSELVES IN
THEIR FOLLY DEEPER INTO THE MIRE OF DEBAUCHERY AND
WICKEDNESS AND PERVERSION OF EVERY SORT. AND, INDEED, IT IS A
LAWLESS AGE IN WHICH WE LIVE- REMINISCENT OF WHAT
JESUS SAID WOULD COME WHEN THE CITIZENS WOULD HATE
HIM WHEN HE HAD GONE OFF TO A FAR COUNTRY, AND THEY
WOULD CRY OUT, “WE WILL NOT HAVE THIS MAN
TO REIGN OVER US.” THAT IS THE GREAT QUESTION
BEFORE THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD IN THIS HOUR: “WILL
MEN AND NATIONS SUBMIT TO HAVING JESUS CHRIST, THE
DIVINE CREATOR OF THE WORLD TO REIGN OVER
THEM, OR WILL THEY NOT? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE
OF THE BIBLE? WHAT IS THE GREAT
END IT SEEKS? WHAT IS IT TRYING
TO ACCOMPLISH? WHY DID JESUS
CHRIST COME AND DIE? WELL, YOU SAY, IT WAS THAT
MEN MIGHT BE SAVED AND MIGHT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. YES, THAT IS TRUE, BUT IT
IS ONLY PARTIALLY TRUE. LET ME LET YOU HEAR IT IN
THE WORDS OF THAT GREAT PRINCETON THEOLOGIAN,
A.A. HODGE: WE HAVE SEEN THAT THE GREAT END IN
WHICH ALL THE PROVIDENTIAL ACTIVITIES OF GOD
CULMINATE IN THIS WORLD IS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A
UNIVERSAL KINGDOM OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH IS TO
EMBRACE ALL REDEEMED MEN AND UNFALLEN ANGELS AND TO
ENDURE FOREVER IN ABSOLUTE PERFECTION AND
BLESSEDNESS. THIS IS GOD’S PURPOSE IN
THIS WORLD IS TO ESTABLISH A PERFECT KINGDOM WHICH
SHALL BE PERFECTED ONLY WHEN CHRIST RETURNS- BUT
A KINGDOM WHEREIN MEN AND WOMEN YIELD THEMSELVES
IN GLAD AND WILLING SUBMISSION TO THE
SCEPTER OF THEIR KING. UNSURPRISINGLY, AN EROSION
OF RESPECT FOR GOD’S COMMANDMENTS HAS LED TO
AN EROSION OF ETHICS IN GOVERNMENT. INSTEAD, THE LEVERS OF
POWER ARE NOW OFTEN BEING PULLED BY PEOPLE WITH NO
HIGHER ALLEGIANCE THAN TO THEIR OWN POLITICAL
IDEOLOGY. THE RESULTS
BORDER ON TYRANNY. BUT THERE IS HOPE. IN A FEW MINUTES, WE’LL
SHARE SOME IMPORTANT NEW RESOURCES TO HELP YOU
RECAPTURE THE FREEDOM THAT’S BEING LOST. BUT FIRST, OUR OWN DR.
JERRY NEWCOMBE TAKES A LOOK AT THE CRISIS IN
CONFIDENCE THAT HAS RESULTED IN OUR
OWN GOVERNMENT. LIKE A LOT OF AMERICANS,
I’M VERY SUSPICIOUS OF MY OWN GOVERNMENT. IT’S GOTTEN SO BIG. SO MUCH HAS BECOME
POLITICIZED IN A VERY AGGRESSIVE WAY. THERE IS A DEEP STATE
THAT HAS A CORRUPTING INFLUENCE. TRUST IN GOVERNMENT IN
AMERICA HAS PLUMMETED RECENTLY. FOR EXAMPLE, AN AXIOS POLL
FOUND THAT LESS THAN 50% OF AMERICANS HAVE
CONFIDENCE IN THE FBI AT PRESENT AND ONLY 38%
OF REPUBLICANS DO. AND IT GETS WORSE. 20% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
BELIEVE THAT GOVERNMENT, THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT,
OPERATES ACCORDING TO THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. THAT, I THINK, TELLS
YOU EVERYTHING. INDEED, EVER-GROWING
PUBLIC AGENCIES, OSTENSIBLY UNDER THE
EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,
SEEM TO NOW OPERATE AS INDEPENDENT ENTITIES
GRINDING POLITICAL AXES WITH LITTLE OVERSIGHT. PERHAPS WHAT IS MOST
TROUBLINGLY, EVEN OUR FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT
AGENCIES SEEM TO BE AFFECTED. PRETTY MUCH JAMES
MADISON’S WORST NIGHTMARE. I JUST REALLY THINK
THAT’S WHAT IT’S BECOME. IS THAT THE IDEA THAT
WE HAVE THIS KIND OF UNCHECKED, ENORMOUSLY
POWERFUL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT THAT REALLY
ISN’T WITHIN THE CONSTITUTIONAL STRUCTURE
THAT WAS CREATED BY THE FOUNDERS, THAT
IS VERY WORRYING. I THINK THAT IS DECIMATING
THE AMERICAN TRUST IN GOVERNANCE. IF WE WIN ON NOVEMBER 8TH
WE ARE GOING TO DRAIN THE SWAMP IN WASHINGTON DC,
WE’RE DRAINING THE SWAMP. MANY PEOPLE VOTED FOR
DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO DRAIN THE SWAMP. THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT
THERE’S A TERRIBLE LEVEL OF POLITICAL CORRUPTION
WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, WITHIN THE
GOVERNMENT ITSELF. WE KNOW THAT POWER
CORRUPTS, AND WE’VE GIVEN TOO MUCH POWER TO THE
GOVERNMENT, TOO MANY DECISIONS ARE MADE IN
WASHINGTON, WHETHER IT’S AN ENVIRONMENTAL DECISION
OR A HEALTHCARE DECISION, AND WHEREVER POWER
CONGREGATES, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE CORRUPTION,
CORRUPTION AND WASTE. AND PRESIDENT TRUMP TO HIS
CREDIT IS TRYING TO DIG THROUGH A LOT OF THAT, AND
THE DEEP STATE’S PUSHING BACK AGAINST HIM, THE DEEP
STATE AND THE MEDIA IS PUSHING BACK AGAINST HIM. A LOT OF LIBERALS MAKE FUN
OF THE TERM DEEP STATE, BUT I THINK IT’S APT TO
DESCRIBE WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE SECURITY APPARATUS
OF THE GOVERNMENT. WELL LET ME EXPLAIN HOW
THE DEEP STATE WORKS. FIRST, IT EXISTS. THE DEEP STATE CONSISTS
OF PEOPLE EMBEDDED IN THE GOVERNMENT WHO HAVE A VERY
CLEAR POLITICAL AGENDA TO DRIVE OUT PRESIDENT
TRUMP FROM OFFICE. THEY’RE LEFTOVERS FROM
PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATIONS. THEY HAVE SOURCES IN THE
MEDIA WHO ARE ADAMANTLY ANTI-TRUMP, AND
THEY WORK TOGETHER. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION
HAS TAKEN SOME POSITIVE STEPS TO DO THINGS LIKE
CIVIL SERVICE REFORM, TO MAKE SURE THAT ENTRENCHED
BUREAUCRACY ISN’T QUITE SO ENTRENCHED. TO TAKE THESE KIND OF
STEPS TO RETURN US TO A MORE CONSTITUTIONAL
GOVERNMENT. I DON’T THINK IT’S
UNREASONABLE FOR AMERICANS TO DISTRUST THEIR
GOVERNMENT AT THIS POINT, AND TO PUSH FOR MORE
INVESTIGATIONS INTO HOW OUR FEDERAL SECURITY
AGENCIES ARE BEING ABUSED. WE NEED TO RETURN TO
SEPARATION OF POWER BUT FOLKS SHOULD NOT JUST VOTE
AND LEAVE IT TO THE FOLKS IN OFFICE, WE’VE GOT TO
KEEP THEM ACCOUNTABLE. C.S. LEWIS ONCE DECLARED, I THINK A LOT OF THIS
OFFICIAL CORRUPTION STEMS FROM A DEEPER PROBLEM,
WHICH IS THE CORRUPTION OF AMERICA’S CULTURE BY
HUMANISTIC ELITE THAT IS TRYING TO PUSH GOD OUT
OF THE PUBLIC SQUARE EVERYWHERE IT CAN. IT BEGAN IN THE SCHOOLS
AND IT WENT TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, MONUMENTS,
YOU KNOW THEY LIKE TO SANDBLAST THE MENTIONS OF
THE BIBLE AND MOSES OFF THE SUPREME COURT
FAÇADE IF THEY COULD. BUT IN A SENSE THEY DON’T
NEED TO BECAUSE THEY’VE REMOVED IT FROM SO MANY
PLACES IN AMERICAN SOCIETY THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE
ARE MORALLY ADRIFT. THEY’VE EMBRACED
MORAL RELATIVISM. WE KNOW AS CHRISTIANS IT’S
NOT A BATTLE AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, IT IS A
SPIRITUAL BATTLE THAT GOES ON ALL THE TIME, AND
WITHOUT PRAYER, WITHOUT BEING COMMITTED TO THAT,
WE’RE GOING TO LOSE. WE CANNOT JUST APPEAL TO
GOVERNMENT TO RESET THE MORAL CLIMATE IN AMERICA. IN FACT, GOVERNMENT
CAN’T DO IT. WE’VE GOT TO DO IT AS
A CHURCH, AS A BODY OF CHRIST IN EFFECT. FOUNDING FATHER JOHN
ADAMS ONCE SAID, THERE HAS TO BE A
STANDARD, A UNIVERSAL STANDARD THAT WE CAN LOOK
TO AS TO WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG. WHAT IS MORAL AND
WE CAN FIND THAT. WE FIND THAT IN THE BIBLE. WE FIND IT IN VERY PLAIN
SPOKEN LANGUAGE IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. WE NEED BIBLICAL TEACHINGS
ON MORALITY, WE NEED TO SET EXAMPLES AND WHAT
WE NEED TO DEMAND OF GOVERNMENT IS FREEDOM TO
PRACTICE THAT, FREEDOM TO SEND OUR CHILDREN TO
SCHOOLS, TO TEACH THE MORAL VALUES THAT
WE CARE ABOUT. I THINK THAT’S WHAT’S
GOTTEN SO MANY PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE
FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY. THEY FEEL THAT FRANKLY
THINGS HAVE SPUN OUT OF CONTROL, THAT THE PEOPLE
AREN’T IN CHARGE ANYMORE, THAT IS ESSENTIALLY
WASHINGTON IS IN CHARGE OF THE COUNTRY. AND FRANKLY, IT SHOULD
BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND. I THINK WE CAN ALL HOPE
THAT THAT DICHOTOMY CHANGES IN THE FUTURE. WE’VE GOT TO HOLD ON TO
THAT SENSE OF HOPE THAT THIS CAN CHANGE. THERE’S A REASON WHY
THIS HAS BEEN EXPOSED. I THINK PART OF IT’S
BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF CHRISTIANS WHO’VE
BEEN PRAYING THAT THAT WHICH HAS BEEN HIDDEN
WOULD BE REVEALED. WELL, BEING REVEALED IS
ONLY THE FIRST STEP. NOW IT NEEDS TO
BE CORRECTED. THE CURRENT TREND IN OUR
GOVERNMENT IS INDEED WORRISOME. AND IT REFLECTS A
CRISIS IN OUR CULTURE. RUNAWAY GOVERNMENT,
COMBINED WITH BUREAUCRATS UNTETHERED FROM THE MORAL
LAW AND DRUNK WITH POWER, RESULTS IN A CHILLING
LOSS OF LIBERTY. BUT WE’VE DEVELOPED SOME
IMPORTANT RESOURCES TO SHED LIGHT ON THIS PROBLEM,
AND TO HELP YOU RECAPTURE YOUR FREEDOM. DR. JERRY NEWCOMBE, WHO
BROUGHT US THAT REPORT EARLIER, IS HERE WITH ME
IN THE STUDIO RIGHT NOW. JERRY, TELL US A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT THESE RESOURCES WE HAVE AVAILABLE. WELL FIRST OF ALL, ROBERT
KNIGHT WHO IS A FRIEND OF THIS MINISTRY, HE’S A
VETERAN JOURNALIST AND IN FACT STARTED YEARS AGO
WITH THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, HE’S WRITTEN A
WONDERFUL BOOK FOR US, AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY
THROUGH THIS MINISTRY, A NATION WORTH FIGHTING FOR,
AND HE GIVES 10 SPECIFIC STEPS THAT WE COULD TAKE
TO HELP RESTORE THIS NATION, AND HE TALKS ABOUT
THE LEFTS ASSAULT ON THE FAMILY AND ON TRADITIONAL
VALUES AND EVEN ON FREE SPEECH AND HE GIVES US
PRACTICAL STEPS IN WHICH CHRISTIANS CAN GET BACK
INVOLVED IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE, MAKE A DIFFERENCE
WHEREVER GOD HAS CALLED THEM TO BE. FRANK THIS IS A BOOK THAT
EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD READ. INDEED, INDEED. WE WILL SEND YOU A COPY OF
ROBERT KNIGHT’S BOOK, A NATION WORTH FIGHTING
FOR: 10 STEPS TO RESTORE FREEDOM, AS OUR THANKS FOR
YOUR GENEROUS DONATION TO THE WORK OF THIS MINISTRY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: AND JERRY WE HAVE AN
ADDITIONAL RESOURCE TO GO ALONG WITH THIS TREMENDOUS
BOOK, A NATION WORTH FIGHTING FOR, WHAT AN
IMPORTANT BOOK THAT OUR FRIEND ROBERT KNIGHT HAS
WRITTEN, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE DVD
THAT WE’RE OFFERING. SURE, THIS IS ALSO
SOMETHING AVAILABLE ONLY THROUGH THIS MINISTRY. THIS IS A DVD THAT WE PUT
TOGETHER OF SOME GREAT INTERVIEWS AND REPORTS AND
SO FORTH ON THE SUBJECT OF JUSTICE AND INTEGRITY,
A SPECIAL REPORT DVD. WHAT THIS IS FRANK IS
IT SHOWS US HOW SO MANY AMERICANS HAVE LOST TRUST
IN THEIR GOVERNMENT BECAUSE YOU HAVE THESE
PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE DEEP STATE. AND SO HERE WE HAVE SOME
EXPERTS IN DC, INCLUDING ROBERT KNIGHT, INCLUDING
FORMER SENATOR JIM DEMINT, WHO ARE BASICALLY SHOWING
US WHAT THE PROBLEM IS AND HOW TO GET BACK. SO, WE’RE AT THE PLACE,
WHERE AS A PEOPLE WE’RE MORE DEPENDENT ON OUR
GOVERNMENT THAN ANY TIME IN HUMAN HISTORY, AT THE
SAME TIME, WE’RE LOSING CONFIDENCE AND
FAITH IN GOVERNMENT. HOW WILL THIS DVD HELP
US DEAL WITH ALL THAT? WELL I THINK IT REALLY
SHINES THE LIGHT ON WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. I THINK PART OF THE REASON
THAT WE’RE IN THE MESS THAT WE’RE IN IS BECAUSE
CHRISTIANS BASICALLY ABANDON THE POLITICAL
PROCESS AND SAID, OH NO POLITICS THAT’S
DIRTY BUSINESS. BUT AS YOU KNOW, D. JAMES
KENNEDY USED TO WARN US AGAINST THAT AND SAY WE
SHOULD BE FAITHFUL WHERE GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE. RIGHT, VERY GOOD. THE EROSION OF TRUST IN
AGENCIES LIKE THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, THE FBI, AND
OTHER POWERFUL GOVERNMENT ENTITIES IS A NATIONAL
CRISIS- AND OUR FREEDOMS ARE BEING COMPROMISED. CONTACT US RIGHT AWAY TO
RECEIVE THESE TWO KEY RESOURCES AS OUR THANKS
FOR YOUR GENEROUS DONATION OF $40 OR MORE. OR GET ROBERT KNIGHT’S
BOOK, A NATION WORTH FIGHTING FOR: 10 STEPS TO
RESTORE FREEDOM, FOR A GENEROUS DONATION. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: THE UNIQUE GENIUS OF
AMERICA’S FOUNDING FATHERS WAS IN THE CHECKS AND
BALANCES THEY PLACED IN OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT. ON THE ONE HAND, THEY
RECOGNIZED THE BIBLICAL TRUTH THAT GOVERNMENT IS
NECESSARY AND GIVEN TO US BY GOD. ON THE OTHER HAND, THEY
RECOGNIZED THAT THOSE GIVEN THE POWER TO GOVERN
ARE THEMSELVES FALLEN, FALLIBLE PEOPLE WHO WILL
TEND TO ABUSE POWER. JAMES MADISON, OFTEN
CALLED THE FATHER OF THE CONSTITUTION, FRAMED THE
DILEMMA WELL IN ONE OF THE FEDERALIST PAPERS. HE WROTE: “IF MEN WERE
ANGELS, NO GOVERNMENT WOULD BE NECESSARY. IF ANGELS WERE TO GOVERN
MEN, NEITHER EXTERNAL NOR INTERNAL CONTROLS ON
GOVERNMENT WOULD BE NECESSARY.” BUT, OF COURSE, MEN ARE
NOT ANGELS, SO BOTH GOVERNMENT AND LIMITATIONS
ON GOVERNMENT ARE NECESSARY. IN RECENT YEARS WE
HAVE SEEN A CASCADE OF GOVERNMENT ABUSE
AGAINST ITS CITIZENS. WE SAW THE IRS WAS USED
AS A WEAPON AGAINST CONSERVATIVE AND CHRISTIAN
ORGANIZATIONS, BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. WE SEE THE RELYING ON THE
FRAUDULENT SO-CALLED HATE MAP OF THE SOUTHERN
POVERTY LAW CENTER. AND WORSE YET, A RETURN TO
THE CORRUPTION OF J. EDGAR HOOVER, WITH THE FBI
ALLEGEDLY SPYING ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN DURING THE
2016 ELECTION SEASON. WITH INCREASING
DEPENDENCY, MORE AND MORE, AMERICANS HAVE MADE AN
IDOL OF GOVERNMENT- ENLARGING IT TO
UNPRECEDENTED SIZE AND EXPECTING IT TO DO
EVERYTHING FROM PROVIDING JOBS TO GIVING
US HEALTHCARE. AND THE CHECKS AGAINST
ABUSING THAT POWER- FIRST AND FOREMOST, PERSONAL
INTEGRITY RESULTING FROM ADHERENCE TO GOD’S LAW-
HAVE FALLEN BY THE WAYSIDE. HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT A
PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT GOVERN THEMSELVES WILL ULTIMATELY
BE GOVERNED BY TYRANTS. OUR HOPE LIES IN RETURNING
TO THE WORD OF GOD. GEORGE WASHINGTON HIMSELF
ISSUED A PROPHETIC WARNING FOR EVERY GENERATION WHEN
HE WROTE: “OF ALL THE DISPOSITIONS AND HABITS
WHICH LEAD TO POLITICAL PROSPERITY, RELIGION AND
MORALITY ARE INDISPENSABLE SUPPORTS. IN VAIN WOULD THAT MAN
CLAIM THE TRIBUTE OF PATRIOTISM, WHO SHOULD
LABOR TO SUBVERT” THEM. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
IS STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. I’M FRANK WRIGHT. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR
THIS EDITION OF TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, WE’LL

THAT TRANSFORM. JESUS CHRIST IS TRUTH. AND SATAN AS CHRIST SAID
IS A LIAR AND WAS A LIAR FROM THE BEGINNING AND

CORRUPTION HERE THAT’S FAR AND DEEP, AND AMERICANS
ARE WONDERING IF ANYBODY’S EVER GONNA BE
PUNISHED FOR IT. THAT’S NEXT WEEK. TODAY’S PROGRAM IS
AVAILABLE ON DVD FOR YOUR GIFT TO THIS MINISTRY
