Transgenderism and The Role of Christians in a Liberal Democracy - Friday, October 16, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank talks about what he saw last night during a town hall meeting with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. During the town hall meeting, Biden overtly stated that he had absolutely no compunction about a young child transitioning from one gender to another. It is simply unconscionable that an 8-year-old child should be burdened with the power to decide to become transgender in the face of well-established science showing that the vast majority of children suffering from gender dysphoria quite naturally grow out of that confusion. Moreover, the damage done to a young body during such a transition attempt is irreversible. Government leaders, in concert with media icons, now create, manipulate, and disseminate ideological constructs that are driving the whole of civilization in a very dangerous direction. We may rightly thank God that we as yet live within the confines of a liberal democracy that affords us the power to hold governmental personalities accountable. A liberal democracy that allows her citizens to participate by voting.

Trodding the Path of Taqiyya, and Q&A - Thursday, October 15, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/15/20), Hank brings up an article he read this week, titled “Harris’ Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draws Scrutiny.” This reminded Hank of Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s address to the Million Muslim Votes Summit, an event hosted by Emgage, an organization founded and led by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including Emgage’s current Co-Chairperson Khurrum Wahid, a former legal advisor to the Hamas-linked radical Muslim organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). During his address, Biden lauds Islam as “one of the great confessional faiths” and “wish[es] we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” As noted in the article, Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris seems enamored with Islam as well. In fact, she has gone out of her way to laud Islam, most notably CAIR, writing in a personal letter to the organization, “Please accept my gratitude and admiration for your tireless work to promote peace, justice, and mutual understanding.” For Harris to say that CAIR promotes “peace, justice, and mutual understanding” is what is referred to in Islam as taqiyya—religious dissimulation. Although CAIR is notorious for its practice of taqiyya, many U.S. politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Talib, have no problem aligning with a group that supports provocative tactics and the terrorism that flow from such tactics. If there is a glimmer of optimism in all of this, it is the hopeful possibility that there may be millions of devout Muslims who could not so much as imagine trodding the path of Taqiyya. In concert with multitudes of non-Muslims, devotees likely regard the religious dissimilation tactics of Biden, Harris, and CAIR to be cringeworthy at best.

Hank also answers the following questions:

What is the proper posture for prayer?

I’ve heard a lot about Obama’s views towards Israel and things of that nature, but haven’t heard many pastors bring up Trump’s views towards minorities. What are your thoughts on this?

Q&A: Christian Zionism, Soul Sleep, and Flat Earth - Wednesday, October 14, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers the following questions:

Can you comment on Romans 11:25-32 and the problems with Christian Zionism?

Can you clarify your statements on soul sleep?

What is the purpose of the Millennium in Revelation chapter 20?

Do you know of any resources on the idea of a flat earth?

I’ve heard of Zionism, but can you expound on Christian Zionism?

Will there be time in eternity and was there time prior to creation?

Columbus Day of Rage - Tuesday, October 13, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank discusses Columbus Day, a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492. Yesterday, Columbus Day was the scene of carnage as demonstrators toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt in Portland’s South Park Block. Moreover, the moniker “Stolen Land” was ominously spray-painted across its concrete base. Protest organizers dubbed the event “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” What could possibly motivate American citizens—supposed exemplars of social justice—to behave with such wanton recklessness in a supposed era of “wokeness” and progressive values? In trying to come to grips with this question, Hank was cowed by page after page of Google search results with exclamations that Columbus was a nefarious character—a ruthless money-grubbing, genocidal maniac, who severed hands, raped women, and enslaved gentle people to satisfy white Europeans’ lust for gold. One starts to wonder “how can I trust history?” Mary Grabar, author of the book, Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation Against America asked this very question. A good deal of what you read on the internet is based on Zinn’s historical revisionism. It constitutes a steady diet of poison seeping into the hearts and minds of impressionable children. Grabar exposes the fake history lessons that are systematically turning a new generation of kids against American exceptionalism.

Critical Race Theory and Evolution - Monday, October 12, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/12/20), Hank discusses the topic of critical race theory, which has been front and center in the news lately, including during the presidential debate in late September. While debate moderator Chris Wallace contended that critical race theory is little more than sensitivity training, reality, says Hank, points in precisely the opposite direction. Critical race theory is rooted in atheistic Marxism. Karl Marx described history as a series of struggles between oppressors and oppressed. Between the dominant and the disadvantaged. As such, critical race theory is foundational to intersectionality, white privilege, white fragility, and the like. Moreover, says Hank, the grand metanarrative of critical race theory embraces an evolutionary worldview that is inherently racist in and of itself. It is not hard to grasp why Critical Race Theorists are loath to connect the dots for devotees or why those like Chris Wallace describe this horrifying worldview as sensitivity training.

Best of BAM: Bears Gone Wild, and Q&A - Saturday, October 10, 2020

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank addresses a question he received on Facebook from John who asks, “In 2 Kings chapter 2, why would God honor Elisha’s prayer to bring down a curse on a group of kids to be mauled by bears? Isn’t the sixth commandment ‘you shall not kill’?” In response, Hank begins by noting that this is not a group of innocent young children, but rather dangerous, morally culpable, teenage gang members. They knew what they were doing in mocking God’s oracle to the nations. They intentionally went after Elisha to mock him and vicariously blaspheme God, a sin punishable by death. In response to John’s reference to the sixth commandment, Hank points out that the Bible does not prohibit killing per se, but unjust killing. What the sixth commandment forbids is murder—unjustified homicide. But more to the point, God alone has the authority to terminate life.

Hank also answers the following questions:

Are there two gospels in the Scripture? What are the differences between the gospel of the kingdom and the gospel of grace?

It seems to me that most mainstream Christians believe that it would be an absolute disaster if the Republican party doesn’t win this election. What would you say?

If the Bible is true, shouldn’t we be more interested in overthrowing God rather than worshiping Him since He is incapable of handing out proportional justice?

Q&A: Public Prayer, the United Pentecostal Church, and the Sin Leading To Death - Friday, October 9, 2020

I attend a senior citizens center that stopped allowing public prayers over meals. What should I do in this situation?

Are the three days and three nights Jesus mentions in Matthew 12:40 referring to Easter?

My family attends a United Pentecostal Church; what are your thoughts on this denomination?

I once saw a fire levitating in my RV and I thought about God in the burning bush. Is this legitimate?

What is your take on William Branham and his ministry?

What is the sin leading to death in 1 John 5:16-17?

Can one receive Jesus as Savior without the intent to make Him the Lord of your life?
