Truths That Transform – The Bible and the Constitution

October 21, 2019


D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
PRESENTS TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. WHAT MIGHT AMERICA LOOK
LIKE IF WE ACTUALLY FOLLOWED OUR OWN
CONSTITUTION? WE’LL TAKE A LOOK AT THAT
QUESTION 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. THE CONSTITUTION IN
AMERICA HAS BEEN UNDER ATTACK FOR
GENERATIONS NOW. BEGINNING WITH COURT
APPOINTEES OF FDR IN THE 1940’S, THE NATION’S
GOVERNING DOCUMENT HAS BEEN ILLEGITIMATELY
REWRITTEN, AND FLAGRANTLY VIOLATED BY LOCAL, STATE,
AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS. NOWHERE IS THAT MORE
APPARENT THAN WITH THE FIRST AMENDMENT’S
PROTECTION OF RELIGIOUS FREE EXERCISE. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM, YOU’LL
SEE HOW A SECULARIZED AMERICA HAS BECOME A LESS
FREE AMERICA, AND YOU’LL DISCOVER HOW THE
GOVERNMENT IS FORCING PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTERS
TO ACT AGAINST THEIR RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCES- IN
DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION. AND WE WILL SHARE SOME
BRAND NEW RESOURCES WITH YOU TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND
WHAT’S BEEN LOST- AND HOW WE CAN GET BACK. AS WE BEGIN, THERE ARE
SOME IMPORTANT EVENTS ON THE HORIZON THAT WILL
AFFECT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. NOT THE LEAST OF THOSE IS
THE SUPREME COURT CASE OF THE MASTERPIECE CAKESHOP,
WHOSE OWNERS WERE PUNISHED FOR DECLINING TO BAKE
A CAKE FOR A SAME-SEX WEDDING ACCORDING TO THEIR
CHRISTIAN CONVICTIONS. DR. RICHARD LAND IS ONE OF
THE MOST INTELLIGENT AND WELL-INFORMED VOICES IN
THE CHRISTIAN WORLD WHEN IT COMES TO
ISSUES LIKE THIS. PRINCETON AND OXFORD
EDUCATED, HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF SOUTHERN
EVANGELICAL SEMINARY IN NORTH CAROLINA, AND HE
RECENTLY SAT DOWN TO TALK WITH OUR OWN JOHN RABE. THIS SUMMER WE EXPECT THE
SUPREME COURT TO HAND DOWN A RULING ON THE
MASTERPIECE BAKE SHOP CASE, I BELIEVE THAT THIS
IS A WATERSHED CASE, DO YOU AGREE, AND IF SO, WHAT
DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT? IT IS. FRANKLY, I THINK THAT
WE’RE GONNA WIN THAT ONE, 5-4, BUT WE COULD LOSE IT
5-4, DEPENDS ON WHICH WAY KENNEDY JUMPS. AS IT OFTEN DOES. IF WE HAD NOT GOTTEN
GORSUCH, WOULD HAVE LOST IT. QUESTION IS WHETHER OR NOT
CONSCIENCE CAN BE COERCED BY THE GOVERNMENT
TO DO THAT WHICH IS UNCONSCIONABLE TO THEM. I BELIEVE, LET ME SAY THIS
AS FIRMLY AND CLEARLY AS I CAN, I BELIEVE THAT IT IS
THE INNATE RIGHT, SHOULD BE PROTECTED BY THE
CONSTITUTION, THAT A PERSON SHOULD NOT HAVE TO,
SHOULD NOT BE COMPELLED BY FORCE OF LAW, OR FINE, OR
LOSING THEIR BUSINESS, TO DO SOMETHING WHICH THEY
BELIEVE IS A VIOLATION OF THEIR CONSCIENCE, EVEN
IF THEY ARE SERVING THE PUBLIC. IT’S NOT, THE EXCELLENT
POINT WAS MADE IN THE CALIFORNIA CASE, THAT IT’S
NOT THAT THEY’RE ASKING THEM TO SELL THEM A CAKE,
THEY’LL SELL THEM A CAKE, THEY WANT THEM TO BAKE A
CAKE, AND TO USE THEIR ARTISTRY TO DECORATE THAT
CAKE, THAT GOES BEYOND WHAT’S REQUIRED BY THE
PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION LAWS. I THINK THE PROBLEM, TOO,
IS OF COURSE THAT AT THE END OF THE DAY IT REALLY
IS ABOUT MORE THAN CAKES, YOU TOUCHED ON THE
COERCION ISSUE, THERE IS AN AGENDA HERE THAT’S
ABOUT MORE THAN GETTING A PHOTOGRAPHER, GETTING A
CAKE, CAUSE THEY CAN BUY A CAKE ANYWHERE. WELL, THAT’S RIGHT, THE
COMPARISON TO THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT ARE
NONSENSE, THERE WERE SECTIONS OF THE COUNTRY
WHERE AFRICAN AMERICANS COULD NOT GET PUBLIC
ACCOMMODATION, THERE ISN’T A CITY IN AMERICA, NOT A
TOWN IN AMERICA WHERE A BAKER, OR A WEDDING
PHOTOGRAPHER, OR A FLORIST WOULD NOT BE MORE THAN
HAPPY TO PROVIDE THEIR SERVICES TO ASSIST IN A
WEDDING BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE OF THE SAME SEX. SO WHY SINGLE OUT
CHRISTIANS AND TRY TO COERCE THEM? IT’S BECAUSE THIS
HAS NEVER BEEN ABOUT TOLERANCE, IT’S NEVER BEEN
ABOUT TOLERANCE, IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT THE
GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER, WHATEVER
TODAY ALPHABET, GROUPS WANTING TO COMPEL SOCIETY
TO NOT ONLY TOLERATE BUT AFFIRM AND NORMALIZE
THEIR BEHAVIOR. THAT’S ALWAYS BEEN
WHAT IT’S ABOUT. THEY’VE EVEN SAID WE’RE
GOING TO FORCE RELIGIONS TO TAKE HOMOSEXUALITY,
HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR OUT OF THE LIST OF SINS. GOOD LUCK, THAT
AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN. AND YOU KNOW, FOR ME THE
QUESTION OF WHAT YOUR ATTITUDE IS ABOUT SAME SEX
BEHAVIOR IS A LITMUS TEST FOR WHETHER YOU ARE REALLY
EVANGELICAL OR NOT. THERE’S NO WAY YOU CAN
SQUARE THAT CIRCLE. IF YOU BELIEVE IN BIBLICAL
AUTHORITY, AND YOU PUT YOURSELF UNDER BIBLICAL
AUTHORITY, THE STRONGEST CONDEMNATIONS OF
HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR ARE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, NOT IN
THE OLD TESTAMENT; ROMANS CHAPTER 1, 1 CORINTHIANS
6, ARE WATERFORD CRYSTAL CLEAR; GOD NEVER CONDONES
SAME SEX BEHAVIOR. NOW YOU CAN HAVE A SAME
SEX TEMPTATION, THAT ISN’T ANY MORE SIN THAN A
HETEROSEXUAL TEMPTATION WOULD BE, BUT WHEN YOU LET
THAT TEMPTATION MOVE OVER INTO THE LUST OF THE EYE
AND THE LUST OF THE MIND, MUCH LESS TAKING PART IN
THE RELATIONSHIP, THEN YOU’VE CROSSED INTO SIN. FINAL QUESTION, WHAT
HAS HAPPENED TO THE CONSTITUTION IN AMERICA
AND WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THAT? WHERE ARE WE AT
CONSTITUTIONALLY SPEAKING? WELL, THERE’S NOTHING
WRONG WITH OUR CONSTITUTION AND NOTHING
WRONG WITH OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT THAT BETTER
PEOPLE IN OFFICE WOULDN’T CURE. WE HAD A PRESIDENT FOR
THE LAST 8 YEARS, BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP, BARACK
OBAMA, WHOSE ATTITUDE TOWARD THE CONSTITUTION, I
THINK I CAN BEST SUM UP BY A STORY THAT WALTER
KAISER, THE GREAT OLD TESTAMENT SCHOLAR TOLD ME
A FEW YEARS AGO, HE SAID THAT HE WAS IN A MAJOR
LIBERAL SEMINARY WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG MAN WITH A
FRIEND, AND THIS MAJOR LIBERAL SEMINARY, ONE OF
THE STUDENTS SAID WELL PROFESSOR SO AND SO, COULD
YOU SUMMARIZE FOR US WHAT THE NEW TESTAMENT
DOCTRINE OF SIN IS? AND SO HE DID, AND
DR. KAISER SAID, THE APOSTLE PAUL COULDN’T HAVE
DONE A BETTER JOB HIMSELF, OF DESCRIBING IN 20 MINUTE
SYNOPSIS, WHAT IS THE NEW TESTAMENT DOCTRINE OF SIN,
IT WAS SO GOOD THAT SOME OF THE STUDENTS STARTED
GETTING UNDER CONVICTION, AND SO FINALLY ONE OF THEM
SAID DR. SO AND SO YOU DON’T REALLY BELIEVE THAT
DO YOU, WELL HE SAID, OF COURSE I DON’T BELIEVE IT. YOU DIDN’T ASK ME WHAT I
BELIEVE; YOU ASKED ME WHAT THE BIBLE TAUGHT. BARACK OBAMA UNDERSTANDS
WHAT THE CONSTITUTION SAYS, HE JUST DOESN’T
BELIEVE IT, HE DIDN’T ABIDE BY IT. AND THAT’S REALLY BEEN THE
CASE ON THE LEFT FOR AT LEAST A FULL
GENERATION NOW. IT HAS BUT BARACK OBAMA
TOOK IT TO NEW LENGTHS. EXCELLENT. WELL DR. LAND, IT’S ALWAYS
A PLEASURE TO TALK TO YOU, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. THE FOUNDERS OF AMERICA
RECOGNIZED THE SINFULNESS OF HUMANITY. AS A RESULT, THEY LIMITED
THE POWER OF GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION,
AND THEY MADE ARRANGEMENTS FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN TO BE
TAUGHT BIBLICAL TRUTH- WHICH THEY KNEW WAS
ESSENTIAL FOR A FREE SOCIETY. BUT IN RECENT DECADES,
THE LEFT HAS IGNORED THE CONSTITUTION AND SOUGHT TO
IMPLEMENT THEIR AGENDA BY USING THE FORCE OF THE
STATE- WHICH IS MORE IN KEEPING WITH THE IDEAS OF
KARL MARX THAN OF THOMAS JEFFERSON. DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY SHARES
MORE IN THIS PORTION OF HIS MESSAGE, “THE BIBLE
AND THE CONSTITUTION.” IN 1787, 55 FOUNDERS
OF THIS COUNTRY MET TO PERFORM WHAT HAS BEEN
CALLED THE “MIRACLE IN PHILADELPHIA.” THEY GAVE OUT THAT WHICH
HAS BEEN DESCRIBED IN ENGLAND AS THE GREATEST
WORK EVER STRUCK FROM THE MIND OF UNINSPIRED MEN,
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. THERE IS NO DOUBT
THAT THERE IS GREATER CONTROVERSY OVER JUST
EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS THAT THEY GAVE US AND WHAT WERE
THEIR INTENTIONS IN GIVING IT TO US THAN THERE
HAS EVER BEEN BEFORE. IN 1986, A FEDERAL JUDGE
IN CHICAGO, SAID THIS: “THE TRUTH IS THAT
AMERICA’S ORIGINS ARE CHRISTIAN AND THAT OUR
FOUNDING FATHERS INTENDED AND ACHIEVED FULL
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR ALL WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A
CHRISTIAN NATION IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT AS IT WAS
ADOPTED RATHER THAN AS WE HAVE REWRITTEN IT.” MAY I SAY THAT MANY OF
THESE PRINCIPLES HAVE BEEN SO OBSCURED IN RECENT
DECADES AS TO BE ALMOST UNRECOGNIZABLE. THEY GAVE US A GOVERNMENT
BY LAW AND NOT BY MEN. THAT IS THE MEANING
OF A REPUBLIC. A REPUBLIC IS A
GOVERNMENT BY LAW. THE SECOND PRINCIPLE THAT
THEY GAVE US WAS THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. NOW THIS WAS A RADICAL
DEPARTURE FROM WHAT HAD BEEN KNOWN. IN ENGLAND YOU CERTAINLY
DIDN’T HAVE EQUALITY. YOU HAD THE NOBILITY AND
HOI POLLOI, THE UNWASHED MASSES, THE MANY. THAT WAS COMPLETELY
ESCHEWED BY THE FOUNDING FATHERS WHO BELIEVED THAT
ALL MEN WERE CREATED EQUAL. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
‘GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS’ (ACTS 10: 34B). THEREFORE, THEY SAW THAT
MEN WERE CREATED EQUAL BEFORE GOD AND SO
THEREFORE THEY GAVE US THAT EQUALITY. NOW THAT WAS THE
PRINCIPLE, IT TOOK US ANOTHER 100 YEARS BEFORE
THAT PRINCIPLE WAS FULLY EXPLICATED AND ALL MEN
WERE CONSIDERED TO BE EQUAL, BUT THE PRINCIPLE
WAS ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION. THIRDLY, THEY GAVE US
“INALIENABLE RIGHTS.” WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE
SELF-EVIDENT THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL; AND
‘ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE
RIGHTS’, SAID THOMAS JEFFERSON IN HIS
DECLARATION. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER
IS, THOUGH JEFFERSON WAS PROBABLY THE LEAST PERSON
TO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS, IS THAT THESE WERE
NOT SELF-EVIDENT, THEY WERE THINGS THAT WERE
TAUGHT IN THE SCRIPTURE; THAT PEOPLE HAD RIGHTS
THAT CAME FROM GOD. GOD, BY THE WAY,
GUARANTEES OUR RIGHTS IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. THE RIGHT OF PRIVATE
PROPERTY IS GUARANTEED IN THE COMMANDMENT “THOU
SHALT NOT STEAL.” THE SANCTITY OF LIFE AND
OUR RIGHT TO LIFE IS GUARANTEED IN THE
COMMANDMENT “THOU SHALT NOT KILL.” THE VARIOUS RIGHTS THAT
WE HAVE COME FROM THE GUARANTEES THAT GOD
HAS GIVEN US BY HIS COMMANDMENTS. DO AWAY WITH THE
COMMANDMENTS AND YOU DO AWAY WITH OUR
INALIENABLE RIGHTS. SO WHEN THE SUPREME COURT
SAYS THAT WE CANNOT PUT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS UP ON
THE WALLS OF OUR SCHOOLS, THEY ARE, INDEED, CHIPPING
AWAY AT THE INALIENABLE RIGHTS THAT WE HAVE FROM
GOD, THOUGH MOST PEOPLE DO NOT RECOGNIZE
WHAT IS HAPPENING. AS I SAID, MOST PEOPLE
USUALLY END UP SAYING ‘WHAT HAPPENED?’ LIBERTY. CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THE
TEXT THAT ‘WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS,
THERE IS LIBERTY.’ ‘STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY
WHEREWITH CHRIST HATH MADE YOU FREE,’ THE BIBLE SAYS. WHEN THE SHACKLES OF SIN
HAD BEEN BROKEN SHORTLY THEREAFTER, EVERYWHERE,
THOSE HAD BEEN SET FREE BY CHRIST AND HAD BEEN GIVEN
SPIRITUAL FREEDOM, BEGAN TO SEEK POLITICAL AND
CIVIL FREEDOM AS WELL. SO IT WAS THE TREMENDOUS
IMPETUS OF CHRISTIAN REDEMPTION THAT MOVED
PEOPLE TO SEEK LIBERTY IN EVERY PART OF THEIR LIVES
AND SO THAT WAS GUARANTEED TO US IN THE CONSTITUTION. AN EXTANT OF LIBERTY NEVER
BEFORE SEEN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD AND IT CAME
FROM THE WORD OF GOD. ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND
MANY OTHERS, SHOW US THAT IT WAS OUT OF THE BIBLE
THAT THE PRINCIPLES OF CHRISTIANITY WERE BROUGHT
FORTH AND WEDDED TO THE PRINCIPLES OF
CIVIL GOVERNMENT. AS DR. KENNEDY NOTED IN
HIS MESSAGE, HOW FAR WE HAVE FALLEN. THE PRINCIPLES OF BIBLICAL
CHRISTIANITY GAVE BIRTH TO THE FREEST NATION IN
MODERN WORLD HISTORY. BUT TODAY, THAT FREEDOM IS
BEING TAKEN AWAY IN THE SERVICE OF A FAR-LEFT
AGENDA OF SEXUAL ANARCHY. A RECENT SERIES OF CASES
IS NOW BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT REGARDING PRO-LIFE
PREGNANCY CENTERS IN CALIFORNIA THAT ARE HAVING
TO BATTLE FOR THEIR MOST BASIC CONSTITUTIONAL
RIGHTS. OUR OWN DR. JERRY
NEWCOMBE HAS MORE. THIS BILL BASICALLY FORCES
EVERY PRIVATE PREGNANCY CARE CENTER IN THE STATE,
OVER 150 COMPASSIONATE, SERVICE ORIENTED GROUPS
TO ADVERTISE DIRECTLY FOR ABORTION AND
ABORTION SERVICES. IN 2016 IN CALIFORNIA, A
LAW WENT INTO EFFECT THAT FORCES CRISIS PREGNANCY
CENTERS- WHICH PROVIDE LOVING ALTERNATIVES TO
ABORTION- TO ADVERTISE THAT WHICH THEY
FIND ABHORRENT. THIS LAW COULD EFFECTIVELY
SHUT DOWN MANY OF THESE CENTERS, SUCH AS A WOMAN’S
FRIEND IN MARYSVILLE, NORTH OF SAN FRANCISCO. WE SEEK TO PROVIDE
RESOURCES AND SUPPORT FOR WOMEN WHO ARE IN AN
UNPLANNED PREGNANCY SO THAT THEY CAN POSSIBLY
WE HOPE CHOOSE LIFE. WE SEE APPROXIMATELY 800
WOMEN A YEAR FOR PREGNANCY TESTS AND 85% OF THOSE
WOMEN CHOOSE LIFE. WE ASKED CAROL ABOUT
CALIFORNIA’S LAW RELATED TO CRISIS
PREGNANCY CENTERS. IT PROVIDES A PHONE NUMBER
FOR THEM TO CALL AND SO, IN EFFECT, IF A WOMEN
WALKS IN OUR DOORS AND READS THAT SIGN SHE MIGHT
SAY, “OH, I CAN GET A FREE ABORTION AT THAT NUMBER
AND SHE’LL TURN AROUND AND WALK OUT BEFORE WE EVER
GET TO TALK TO HER.” THIS IS SO REPUGNANT, IT
IS SO OPPOSITE OF WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN THAT
TO HAVE TO HAVE THAT ADVERTISEMENT PROMOTING
SOMETHING THAT IS COMPLETELY DISAGREEING
WITH THE PRO-LIFE MESSAGE IS SO DISCOURAGING THAT
MANY OF THEM WILL PROBABLY JUST SHUT DOWN. WE KNOW THAT. ATTORNEY BRAD DACUS IS THE
DIRECTOR OF THE PACIFIC JUSTICE INSTITUTE, WHICH
HAS FILED SUIT AGAINST THIS NEW LAW ON BEHALF OF
A WOMAN’S FRIEND AND ALL THE OTHER CRISIS PREGNANCY
CENTERS IN CALIFORNIA. THIS IS LIKE TELLING
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS THAT BEFORE THEY CAN HAVE A
MEETING THEY HAVE TO HAVE A LARGE POSTER OR HANDOUTS
AS TO WHERE THEIR MEMBERS CAN GO TO GET FREE BOOZE. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME
COMPLAINTS THAT IT GIVES THE APPEARANCE THAT WE- AS
A CLINIC- ARE SAYING “AN ABORTION WOULD BE A GOOD
ALTERNATIVE FOR YOU.” WITHOUT EVEN SPEAKING
TO THE PATIENTS. SO SOME OF THE MEDICAL
DIRECTORS OF THE OTHER CLINICS HAVE EXPRESSED
CONCERN THAT IT IS SPEAKING FOR THEM AS
MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS SAYING THAT THEY SUPPORT
ABORTION AND HERE’S WHERE YOU WOULD GO TO GET ONE. ONE OF THOSE WOMEN HELPED
BY A WOMAN’S FRIEND IS HILLARY, WHO 2 YEARS
AGO FOUND HERSELF IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION. I FOUND OUT THAT
I WAS PREGNANT. AND I WAS ADDICTED TO
HEROIN AT THE TIME AND HOMELESS SO I DECIDED THAT
I COULD NOT TAKE CARE OF A CHILD, I COULD BARELY TAKE
CARE OF MYSELF JUST WITH MY SITUATION AND MY LIFE
AND I DECIDED I NEED TO HAVE AN ABORTION. I CALLED PLANNED
PARENTHOOD TO FIND OUT HOW TO GET AN ABORTION SET UP. AND THEY TOLD ME I NEEDED
A PROOF OF PREGNANCY AND AN ULTRASOUND. SO I CAME HERE, I KNEW
WHAT THEIR MISSION WAS- THAT THEY WOULD BE AGAINST
ME HAVING AN ABORTION, THAT THEY WOULD TRY TO
TALK ME OUT OF IT BUT I JUST FIGURED, “WELL, OK
I CAN JUST GO THROUGH IT HOWEVER AND JUST GET MY
PROOF OF PREGNANCY SO I CAN JUST GET
THIS ABORTION.” WELL, WHEN I CAME THROUGH
THESE DOORS THEY WERE SO WONDERFUL HERE. THEY WERE SO KIND TO ME. AND NOT JUDGMENTAL. ONCE I SAW THE ULTRASOUND
I KNEW THAT MY HEART AND MY MIND HAD BEEN CHANGED
AND THAT I WANTED TO HAVE MY BABY. ARE YOU GLAD THAT YOU
CHOSE LIFE FOR YOUR BABY? I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE I’D
BE RIGHT NOW WITHOUT HIM. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH AND HE
GIVES ME THIS MOTIVATION THAT I NEVER HAD AND HE
HAS CHANGED MY LIFE AND GOD HAS JUST BLESSED ME
WITH MY BEAUTIFUL BOY. AND THROUGH SOME OF THESE
WONDERFUL LADIES HERE, I NOW AM A CHRISTIAN AND
HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS
NEW LAW, REQUIRING CLINICS LIKE THIS TO SAY, “HEY,
IF YOU WANT AN ABORTION, HERE’S THE NUMBER TO
CALL- LOW COST OR FREE?” WOMEN COME IN HERE SO
EARLY IN THEIR PREGNANCY AND IF THEY SEE THAT AND
THEY CALL THAT NUMBER YOU KNOW PLANNED PARENTHOOD
MIGHT CONVINCE THEM THAT IT’S JUST A BLOB OF TISSUE
OR SOME OF THE LIES I’VE HEARD AND I’VE BEEN TO
PLANNED PARENTHOOD BEFORE SO I KNOW THAT THEY TELL
YOU LIES AND MAKE YOU THINK THAT LIFE
ISN’T IMPORTANT. I WOULD BE SO DEVASTATED
RIGHT NOW IF I WERE TO HAD AN ABORTION, AND I KNOW
SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD ABORTIONS, AND EVERYBODY
THAT I KNOW THAT’S HAD AN ABORTION, I KNOW SEVERAL
WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN IN MY SITUATION AND THEY CHOSE
THE ABORTION INSTEAD AND THEY REGRET THAT NOW. THEY GO THROUGH
THEIR LIVES SAD. WHEN THIS WAS SIGNED INTO
LAW, WE FILED OUR LAWSUIT TO CHALLENGE THIS
WITHIN 24 HOURS. THE LEGAL EFFORTS TO STOP
THIS LAW FAILED AT THE 9TH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS
IN SAN FRANCISCO- HOWEVER, THAT IS THE MOST
OVERTURNED COURT OF APPEALS IN THE NATION. SO NOW BRAD DACUS IS
APPEALING THIS CASE TO THE US SUPREME COURT. IMAGINE ANY OTHER BUSINESS
HAVING TO PROMOTE, IF YOU WILL, THEIR COMPETITOR,
WHEN YOU WALK IN OR YOU GO INTO A BAPTIST CHURCH AND
THEY SAY, “WELL YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SIGN UP POINTING
PEOPLE TO THE LOCAL MOSQUE.” OR YOU GO INTO
THE LOCAL MOSQUE AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING
THAT PROMOTES THAT THEY GO TO THE BAPTIST CHURCH. I MEAN, IT’S INSANITY WHAT
CALIFORNIA IS DICTATING TO THESE MINISTRIES. SOME OF THE PREGNANCY
CENTERS ARE OBEYING THE NEW LAW- OTHERS ARE NOT,
BECAUSE OF THE LEGAL EFFORTS TO DECLARE
IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL. ONE-WAY TOLERANCE ISN’T
TOLERANCE AT ALL. AND THAT WHAT THIS
LAW BASICALLY DOES. IT ONLY PICKS ON AND
ONLY DEALS WITH PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CLINICS, THOSE
THAT DON’T DO ABORTIONS AND THEN OF COURSE PLANNED
PARENTHOOD IS DELIGHTED. THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO
REQUIREMENT FOR THEM TO HAVE A SIGN TELLING WOMEN
WHERE THEY CAN GET A PRO-LIFE OR A
POST-PREGNANCY SUPPORT. AND WE AT PACIFIC JUSTICE
INSTITUTE ARE REPRESENTING A NUMBER OF THESE PRO-LIFE
CLINICS IN A CASE THAT RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK IS
PENDING BEFORE THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. IT IS PATENTLY ABSURD
THAT PRO-LIFE CHRISTIAN PREGNANCY CENTERS WOULD
BE REQUIRED TO ADVERTISE ABORTION SERVICES THAT GO
AGAINST THEIR CONSCIENCE? THIS IS GOVERNMENT
COMPELLED SPEECH OF THE FIRST ORDER. OUR FIRST AMENDMENT
GUARANTEE OF RELIGIOUS FREE EXERCISE HAS BEEN
TOSSED ASIDE IN FAVOR OF A MONSTROUS AND COMPLETELY
COURT-FABRICATED SUPPOSED RIGHT TO KILL
BABIES IN THE WOMB. DO YOU EVER WONDER HOW
WE CAN GET BACK FROM THE CULTURAL PRECIPICE ON
WHICH WE NOW STAND? WHAT WOULD AMERICA LOOK
LIKE IF WE REGAINED OUR CONSTITUTION AND FREEDOMS? WELL, WE HAVE AN
OUTSTANDING NEW AND PRACTICAL RESOURCE THAT
WILL SHOW YOU, AND HERE’S MY DEAR FRIEND JENNIFER
KENNEDY CASSIDY TO TELL US MORE. JENNIFER WELCOME. THANK YOU, FRANK. THAT RESOURCE IS THE
BRAND NEW BOOK BY VETERAN WASHINGTON JOURNALIST
ROBERT KNIGHT ENTITLED A STRONG CONSTITUTION: WHAT
WOULD AMERICA LOOK LIKE IF WE FOLLOWED THE LAW? IN THIS CRITICALLY
IMPORTANT BOOK, YOU’LL DISCOVER HOW OUR FREEDOM
HAS BEEN ERODED IN EVERYTHING FROM OUR
ECONOMIC DECISIONS TO OUR JOBS TO OUR FAMILIES. AND YOU’LL DISCOVER A
ROADMAP FOR RESTORING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS. OUR FOUNDERS INTENDED
US TO HAVE A LIMITED GOVERNMENT, BELIEVING THAT
LESS GOVERNMENT EQUALED MORE FREEDOM. BUT TODAY, THE GOVERNMENT
IS THE ENGINE THE LEFT USES TO DRIVE EVERY BIT
OF THEIR AGENDA, FROM ABORTION TO SAME-SEX
MARRIAGE; FROM REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH
TO SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE. IT’S URGENT THAT YOU READ
THIS BOOK AND SHARE IT WITH OTHERS, TO DISCOVER
WHERE WE WENT WRONG, AND HOW WE CAN REGAIN
OUR LIBERTY. AND WE WILL SEND YOU A
COPY RIGHT AWAY AS OUR THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROUS
DONATION TO THE ONGOING WORK OF THIS MINISTRY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL
ENABLE US, AMONG OTHER THINGS, TO TRAIN FUTURE
LEADERS IN A FIRM CONSTITUTIONAL WORLDVIEW
THROUGH OUR D. JAMES KENNEDY CENTER FOR
CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP, EQUIPPING THEM TO ATTAIN
LEADERSHIP POSITIONS IN LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT WHERE THEY CAN MAKE AN IMPACT. AND IF YOU ARE ABLE TO
GIVE A GENEROUS DONATION OF $40 OR MORE, WE’LL
ALSO INCLUDE MY FATHER’S POWERFUL AND INSIGHTFUL
MESSAGE, THE BIBLE AND THE CONSTITUTION, ON DVD. IN HIS MESSAGE, MY DAD
SHOWS THE UNMISTAKABLE LINK BETWEEN BIBLICAL
CHRISTIANITY AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF AMERICA’S
CONSTITUTION, WHICH MADE US THE FREEST
NATION ON EARTH. YOU’LL BE AMAZED TO
DISCOVER HOW ESSENTIAL CHRISTIANITY WAS TO THE
FOUNDING OF THE NATION, AND YOU’LL BE REMINDED HOW
THIS TRUTH HAS BEEN HIDDEN BY OUR MODERN EDUCATIONAL
INSTITUTIONS. THAT’S THE NEW BOOK, A
STRONG CONSTITUTION: WHAT WOULD AMERICA LOOK LIKE
IF WE FOLLOWED THE LAW? BY ROBERT KNIGHT, AS WELL
AS THE DVD MESSAGE, THE BIBLE AND THE
CONSTITUTION, AS OUR THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROUS
DONATION OF $40 OR MORE. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: NOTED COMMENTATOR CHARLES
KRAUTHAMMER ONCE APTLY OBSERVED THAT “LIBERALS
DON’T CARE WHAT YOU DO, AS LONG AS IT’S MANDATORY.” INDEED, IT’S THE COERCIVE
POWER OF GOVERNMENT THAT REVEALS THE DEPTHS ON
MANKIND’S CORRUPTION. AND THIS STRONG AND
INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT HAND IS PART AND PARCEL OF
THE LEFT’S PROGRAM FOR IMPLEMENTING THEIR AGENDA. IN MARCH, THE SUPREME
COURT HEARD A GROUP OF CALIFORNIA CASES IN WHICH
PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTERS ARE BEING COMPELLED BY
STATE LAW- AND AGAINST CONSCIENCE- TO POST
ADVERTISEMENTS FOR ABORTION SERVICES
IN THEIR OFFICES. SUCH A LAW SEEMS
SELF-EVIDENTLY CONTRARY TO THE FIRST AMENDMENT’S
PROTECTIONS ON FREE SPEECH. BUT WE LIVE IN AN
ERA WHERE GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS RUN ROUGHSHOD
OVER THE CONSTITUTION, WITH A PARTICULAR EMPHASIS
ON ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF CHRISTIANS WHO FAIL TO
SUPPORT ABORTION, SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND A HOST
OF OTHER UNBIBLICAL PRACTICES. AND ONCE AGAIN WE WAIT FOR
THE HIGH COURT’S SWING VOTE, JUSTICE ANTHONY
KENNEDY, TO HAND DOWN HIS TABLETS FROM ON HIGH,
INFORMING HOI POLIO LIKE US WHAT THE CONSTITUTION
MEANS THIS WEEK. IN THE RECENT PAST,
LEFTIST FORCES IN OUR GOVERNMENT HAVE
STRONG-ARMED AMERICANS, FORCING THEM TO PURCHASE
HEALTH INSURANCE, BAKE CAKES AND PROVIDE FLOWERS
AND PHOTOGRAPHY FOR SAME-SEX WEDDINGS, AND
EVEN FORCING A GROUP OF LARGELY ELDERLY NUNS TO
INCLUDE ABORTIFACIENTS AND CONTRACEPTIVES IN THEIR
HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN. COERCION IS, OF COURSE,
ANTITHETICAL TO A FREE SOCIETY. IF YOUR ACTIONS ARE
COMPELLED, THEY ARE NOT FREE. SCRIPTURE TELLS US: THIS IS SOMETHING
AMERICA’S FOUNDING GENERATION RECOGNIZED AS
ELEMENTAL: THAT, “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT
THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN
UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE IS LIBERTY.” THE FRAMERS OF OUR
CONSTITUTION UNDERSTOOD THAT TRUE FREEDOM WAS ONLY
COMPATIBLE WITH LIMITED GOVERNMENT. TODAY, THE IDEA OF LIMITED
GOVERNMENT IS CONSIDERED OXYMORONIC BY THE FAR-LEFT
DENIZENS OF THE SWAMP THAT IS WASHINGTON, DC. INSTEAD WE HAVE RUNAWAY
GOVERNMENT, FORCING CHRISTIANS TO ACT AGAINST
DEEPLY HELD CONVICTIONS IN SERVICE OF HARD-LEFT
POLICIES TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE PLAYBOOK OF
MARX, ENGELS, AND LENIN. THIS ABOUT AS FAR FROM THE
AMERICAN IDEAL AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET. ONLY IN RECLAIMING OUR
CONSTITUTION CAN WE RECLAIM FREEDOM. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
IS STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR
THIS EDITION OF TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, I’M FRANK
WRIGHT, WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME. NEXT WEEK ON TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. WHEN PEOPLE ARE OUTSIDE OF
CHRIST, THEY ARE EITHER GOING TO HAVE TYRANNY
OR THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE ANARCHY. THERE IS NO PROSPERITY,
THERE IS NO FREEDOM WITHOUT GOD. THAT’S NEXT WEEK. TODAY’S PROGRAM IS
AVAILABLE ON DVD FOR YOUR GIFT TO THIS MINISTRY
OF ANY AMOUNT. PLEASE CALL, WRITE, OR LOG
ON TO OUR WEBSITE TODAY. THIS HAS BEEN A
PRODUCTION OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
