Episode Summary

We are to be wise, and when you look at the Covid situation as a whole, it seems prudent not to trust those guiding what to do.

If the vaccinations work, why are the vaccinated getting so angry at the unvaxed? If natural immunity is twenty-seven times more effective than the vaccine, then why are people who have already gotten Covid losing their jobs unless they get vaccinated? Isaac & Angie answer and wrestle with these issues in this episode.

Main Points In This Episode:

  1. There are many holes in the logic behind forced vaccinations.
  2. Submitting to tyranny only leads to more tyranny.
  3. We believe God will redeem the tough situations for the people who stand strong against getting vaccinated and lose their jobs.
  4. If you feel like you should get vaccinated we have no issue with that. It’s a decision each person needs to make. But if people decide not to get vaccinated they shouldn’t be banished from work and societal freedoms.

Welcome to Courageous Parenting podcast, a weekly show to equip parents with biblical truth on raising confident Christian kids in an uncertain world.

Hi, I’m Angie from courageous

Mom and I’m Isaac from Resolute Man.

We’ve been married for twenty one years and have seen the fruit from raising our eight kids biblically. Based on the raw truth found in the

Bible, we can no longer let the culture win the hearts of children. Too many children from Christian families are walking away from their faith by age 18, and it doesn’t have to be this way. It shouldn’t be this way. Join us as we start an important conversation about effective parenting and the fall. Welcome back to the podcast, everyone. Hey, guys. So we’re so excited to be here with you. This is a very kind of heavy episode, but important and has everything to do with parenting because as parents, we have to make really careful decisions. It’s becoming harder to make good decisions in this world, isn’t it?

Yeah. And there was no example for us as parents and how to walk through the specific issue that we’re going to be really talking a lot about. Yeah, because a lot of the things that are happening in the world right now, as far as America is concerned, it’s the first time ever. And as far as certain tyranny and different things like that, we undertook about that.

And for many of you around the world also. So it’s really an interesting time. And we felt compelled. We felt like the spirit was, you know, drawing us to talk about this. We get so many questions from people or so many just updates now tragic updates of having to quit their jobs, 20 years of being a nurse or police officer or whatever the case may be. And it’s just really, really sad to see that we know the truth that for Christians, God’s going to redeem that for the individuals if they continue in obedience to him and God has some great plan for you. We believe that. And but it doesn’t mean it was should have happened the way it is having to quit your job because you won’t get vaccinated, for example, and those kinds of things. Hey, did you catch the new episode on Friday?

Ok, guys, we’re super pumped about this and we’re curious what you think. So please leave us reviews and even just specifically tell us what you think of the new Courageous Kids podcast.

Yeah, it’s all part of courageous parenting. It’s the Friday episode that is our kids teaching your kids. Or, you know, you might just love listening to it to find out more about our kids and what’s going on, and there’s good wisdom in there.

This was so fun, you guys, because you know, we’ve been doing the podcast now for almost three years. December is coming right around the corner and just a few months, and we will have been doing this for three years and our kids. Obviously, this is like a team effort. You guys know that while we’re shooting, our kids are oftentimes helping with your younger siblings. And you know, a lot of what we share in the podcast is stuff that we’ve had conversations with our children about. And that’s one of the motivators is that we’re teaching our kids these things. And then a lot of parents oftentimes are like, Wait, what did you teach them? And I don’t know that. And so we wanted to encourage you guys with that. But we’ve got a lot of recommendations where you’re saying, Hey, my kids love listening to your podcast. And so we started thinking, Well, what if we had our kids on a podcast? Then your kids might even like that more so we actually talked to the kids about it. They were all super enthusiastic.

Shocker was not convincing on our part.

Our eleven year old, he just turned 11 was like the most like, so when are we going to do it? When do I get to do it? Yeah, super pumped up about it. Megan, who’s 16, she did the first episode, also was really excited to do it.

So so it is really pretty cool and I’ve been enjoying the experience with the kids. They come up with ideas and but I just helped them organize how to put their ideas together in a short period of time. It’s 15 minutes or less. The first episode was Ten Minutes, and that’s with the new bumpers. The intro and outro to the podcast episode intros Megan Outro for a few seconds is drew. And then in the middle, it’ll be a different kid each week. So that’s great doing teaching some kind of wisdom, sharing stories about their upbringing

That they’ve learned along. You know what they’re experiencing with God.

So we’d love to hear. I hope you play for your kids, and I hope it’s a blessing to everybody. We just are consistently looking for more ways to impact one million families and their legacies, really to equip them to. And we’re doing this together. It’s a together

Movement. You know, it got me thinking, too. And when you’re just sharing that one of the things that for me, I am a truth teller, I really value truth. And over the years, I don’t know if you have ever thought this, but a lot of times you see people on social media or you even listen to their podcast or maybe even read a book by them, but you don’t actually know what the fruit is like in their family. Are they teaching what is real in their family? And we’ve always tried to be a very open book. We we have a couple of kids that are on social media. Our three oldest kids are on social media and they share their lives. Like, sometimes, you know, one kid shares a lot more than others just because of her personality. But we wanted to invite you guys more into our lives so that you can see that there really is fruit. And this is why people who are in our real life were encouraging us to do this ministry because they saw the fruit in the kids. And I don’t I don’t say that to impress you, but to impress upon you the importance of knowing who it is that you’re. Listening to and this is why, for example, second, Timothy talks about having qualifications for elders like your your pastors should be qualified to be teaching, right? The Bible says that how are they able to be leading the household of God if they can’t even manage their own households? And so we are doing this podcast for many different reasons. It’s also a great experience for the kids to learn public speaking and stuff like that for home schooling,

And they are getting credit. That’s right. Academic credit for doing.

That’s right. So they’re coming up with topics, creating out lines, practicing public speaking. It’s just been a fun experience for them.

So in Luke, 21 15, this is an interesting scripture actually for right now. I think it’ll be encouraged by it for I will give you a mouth and wisdom. What does that mean? I’ll give you a mouth. I’ll give you a voice. Your voice will be influential. You’ll make a difference with your mouth. That’s what I believe that says for. I will give you a mouth and wisdom to different things here.

Both are given

Platform a an influence with people around you and wisdom to use that influence. Ok, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. That’s a nice promise. These are red letters, folks. This is Jesus. All right. So this is this is really cool. You will be delivered up even by now. It takes a little turn here.

I know what you’re talking about in times. Just, you know,

You’ll be delivered up by even even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you they will put to death. You’ll be hated by all, for my name’s sake, but not a hair of your head will perish by your endurance. You will gain your lives. Hmm. We don’t perish, right? We go to heaven. And this is unfortunate. And some of the COVID stuff you see the beginnings of encouragement by governments to to tattletale tattle there, to really turn each other

In having those. What are they called the hotlines that they had the phone hot tip hotlines where it was like, Oh, if people in your neighborhood are meeting together and there’s more than ten people call the the

Hotline, you can just see where this is going, like vaccine passports are happening. It’s Italy, right? Wild, wild stuff around around the country now. Pretty soon there’s going to be fake vaccine passports by the unvaccinated to keep their jobs. Pretty soon it’s going to be a brother telling on a brother because his vaccine passports fake. You know, you can just kind of look forward when you do certain things. These things start happening. People start turning each other and oh, they’re they’re unvaccinated. There’s two levels of society the supreme vaccinated and the

The inferior

Inferior unvaccinated people. Dangerous people. Right, right, right. So it’s just very interesting. And we’re talking about potentially where things could go. We’re looking at scripture here and we’re

Telling different people would view those different groups

Also. And so it’s so sad. God is not a god of division. God is God of unity, right? He even says not to judge the unbelievers like, you’re talking about a spiritual thing. Where to judge those who do believe make judgments like discernment and so forth? Right? We have to make judgments about who our kids are spending time with and things like that.

And we need to be judging whether or not what’s being preached from a pulpit is blasphemous to scripture or misinterpretation, which we talked about in one of our podcasts when we went over Romans 13. Because a lot of churches are taking that passage out of context to fit a narrative, to get people to do a certain thing that they want. And so the reality is that we need to be careful. We need to have the fear of God in us recognizing what James 3-1 says, which many of you should not be teachers, my brother, unless you receive a stricter judgment or a more harsh judgment in some translations, say the reality is that we need to be humbled, right? We are all in all over the world, are living in a much easier society, and there is an element where that easiness of life can become an idol and creates pride to where people just say things flippantly without actually having that fear and trembling in their heart towards the Lord, understanding that they lead people in a certain direction based upon what they say.

So I want to just give props to the Daily Wire. You can look it up daily. Wired.com: I think and they’re on Instagram and everywhere. It’s Candace Owens as part of that show. Ben Shapiro, you know, lots of interesting people, conservative guests. I mean, hosts, I mean, that are sharing truth. And I want to give props to them because they are not complying. They have over one hundred employees and they’re not complying with the mandate in the United States. For all employers, over 100 hundred employees to, you know, force vaccinations or, you know. Prove a test consistently, so I think that that is wonderful, we are paid subscribers to the Daily Wire. We get nothing, but I would encourage you to pay for that. We need to support organizations that are going to stand for truth, and I love that. I think more people need to not comply. So let’s use the hashtag even that they were putting forth. Do not comply.

Right. And I think that, you know, this is an important resource that Isaac is bringing up because we get a lot of messages from you all saying, I don’t know. I don’t share stuff because I don’t really know what is fully true and what isn’t true, right? Well, there are some solid outlets where you can get truth because they are doing due diligence and verifying information. And so there are just a couple daily wires, one of the ones that Isaac has promoted. We’ve also talked about the Epoch Times, right? We get that newspaper as well. So there are a few little resources that we’ve used that might be helpful to you.

Now I was thinking it was interesting this morning. I feel like I was getting prompted about the future of the ministry and how we can continue to proclaim truth, because even this episode, we wondered if we should do. Do you guys know, even on iTunes, there are certain things you’re not allowed to talk about? There’s biblical viewpoints you can’t share. And iTunes is 80 percent of downloads for podcasts. 80 percent of podcast downloads for us at least come from iTunes, and I think most podcasts are that way. So when we think about this one talking about vaccines or COVID in a little different angle than the vaccine episode, which you should go listen to if you haven’t already fastly becoming the most listened to episode ever, which makes sense. But I think that I think, you know, we decided to move forward because we can’t not share something. But as I was thinking about it, I’m like, Wow, do we need to build an app so people have their own ability to put us on their phone or have access to? Does it need to be an app somehow outside of the Apple Store? And how do we do this? So as we get canceled in the future, we can still project information out there. And I’m looking at the Daily Wire as an example. They built an app there. You know, the show hosts get canceled in different places, but the message continues because you’re still able to get access the immediate sense. What I know for sure is we need your email address because we need to stay connected. We need to notify you of any changes we’re making because there really is an alternative economy that’s going to have to be built and is already being built. There’s already people talking about it, which is really interesting, which is the inclusive economy, which is the economy that says, I don’t care if you’re vaccinated or unvaccinated, I’m in the service to you. I’m going to serve you. You can come in. Isn’t that funny that we’re as conservatives? We’re talking about creating an economy that’s more inclusive, right?

Because those who are more liberal are actually the ones that are excluding others and canceling them. Hey. Very interesting.

If you feel a conviction and it’s important for your family to be vaccinated, we’re not going to treat you any differently or look at you any differently. That is a decision you make on your own. But what we’re talking about is when there’s a forced effort to do something to your body in an experimental way. That is a whole nother story

Or in a or with something that’s not just experimental, but there’s the issue of aborted fetal tissues, which we talk more about in depth in the last podcast because not all vaccinations have it in there, but all of them have been tested with using derived from. Yeah, and they’ve tested on fetal cells. And so it’s important that you understand that that is not just an ethical issue, that’s a biblical issue. If you are a Christian, then you claim to believe what the Bible says the whole Bible, not just part of the Bible. So go back and listen to that podcast because there’s it’s very clear that we, as Christians, need to take a stance on this.

And hey, by the way, I know the hardship of having plenty and losing it and having no immediate, clear way of providing for my family when we had seven kids.

But that’s what it’s also. Can I just say boldly, that is what the church is for. And if you’re part of a biblical community and a church, they should have a benevolence fund where they’re able to help you through that. You need to go seek wise counsel and I mean, wise counsel. That’s going to lead you to be courageous and do the right thing, not just an hour long to get along.

And for, you know, since COVID began early on in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty well,

Twenty in America, it was twenty twenty, but it was over season.

So in 2020, we were talking about on our podcast how it’s important to have two or three sources of income and be building side hustles and things like that, and to be less dependent on, you know, corporate America and these kinds of things. So now we share with our kids, we’re for them working for somebody, but only for a timely. I think it’s most important, ultimately that they’re entrepreneurs. You know, when you’re young, you got to learn things and work for people and learn things and so forth.

So apprenticeships, though with like minded people, are the most ideal and so they can learn a lot of different skills without having to give up their personal convictions on whether that’s vaccinating or mask.

So I’m thinking about that. I’m thinking about each kid is wired and we should do an episode just on that, how each kid is wired and how to kind of direct them in directions that they’re passionate

And how to find people that can have that vision for pouring into the next generation as well because they are the future economy.

Ok, so so I’m going to dive in here. I’m just going to reel through something. I had this. I’m like, some things are just not making sense out there like, you know, they’re forcing vaccinations and all these things. But you know, anyways, I’m going to run through this because I had to get to my whiteboard and just and I prayed and I got my whiteboard out and I just I wrote a word and then an arrow to the next thing that happened and the next thing and next thing. And that’s what’s in front of us.

And then we talked for a long time about this and we went over like, OK, what are the most important questions for critical thinking that people need to be thinking right now and they need to teach their kids to be thinking this way also, and it’s literally just asking questions. You must ask questions. You’ve got to teach your kids to ask questions, not to just believe what authorities are saying and pushing you to do.

So go listen to that critical thinking episode, by the way. But this is logic, right? Logic is an important skill, which is what you’re talking about. Yeah, OK, here we go. I want to take a moment and give you something for free. If you haven’t got it already is the date night one sheet. It is a beautiful document you can download that Will has some key questions on it for your date night to just get in alignment about what’s most important for your family, no matter what time of year, it’s always important to recalibrate. You can get that by going to creative parenting and subscribing to our mailing list. Also, you can get all of our show notes and everything a courageous parenting. And I also just want to share real quick about the parenting mentor program. So many families are being transformed by going through this. It’s the six week self-paced program with live engagement from us and even direct interaction. So if you want to join us, here’s a little bit more about it. You can find out more at courageous parenting.

Steven, I realized that we were getting too comfortable with the world’s vision of how to raise our children, but Angie and Isaac have done in creating this is literally phenomenal.

This program provided awesome scripture based teachings and just some really great practical applications.

This class has just really rocked my world. It has given me the vision for not just the different things that we might focus on as parents who are trying to raise our kids biblically, like how our kids are behaving or what we’re doing with discipline, but also the things of the heart. We now have a game plan to how we want to raise our children. We have so many answers to the questions that have been in our mind. It’s not just these hypothetical situations or it’s not just this. Here’s what I think you should do. It’s let me show you where in scripture this is. Do your legacy a favor and yourself a favor and just do it. One of the best things that we’ve done this year, one of the best investments we’ve made this year, and I could not recommend it more. We’re no longer fearing dark days

Ahead, but we’re so excited to raise the lights to be leaders for the next generation. So about half the. People get vaccinated, give or take. All right. The real detail people are going to, you know, know the exact number, right? The vaccinated


Starting to get sick. Jesse Arrow, more are the vaccinated. In some ways, more susceptible, susceptible. With the vaccination, is this a question? I don’t know what is the real like? You can’t trust all the data coming out. You have to look at this whole thing. So just bear with me here. Or are the vaccinated more susceptible to getting like the Delta variant, for example? Ok, now what is proven is natural immunity is better than the Vax 20 seven times better. The new study just put out that’s verified and good now. Vaccinated people are increasingly becoming mad at the unvaccinated

And angry, and they’re scared of them. Hmm.

Too late. Is it too late to be wrong and the vaccine? Too many people have done it, too much money. There’s too much billions of dollars to be made.

Well, they would have lawsuits against them if they were wrong right now.

To in order to help the vaxxed, the vaccinated, they’re forcing everyone else to get vaccinated. Now I know they say it’s to help everyone else, but there’s so much. But if people angry at the unvaccinated and if we’ll go in in a second, but why would they be angry at the unvaccinated? If the vaccine worked right, so why else is all of this happening? Well, recently, Afghanistan happening. So let’s talk about the control in the United States, the mandates that just went out and there’s more coming.

So it’s not just the United States, it’s been happening in Canada and other places

Around the world. So why else is this happening? I was thinking about, well, Afghanistan was a complete blunder. Biden’s approval rating is thirty nine percent, I think the lowest anyone’s any president seen in a really long time, and that means it’s crossing the lines. Cnn is reporting bad things about Biden. So when that starts to happen, you know, there’s real bad things happening for the president. And so a distraction. And what is the one way he can follow through on something that his side cares about, which is making sure everybody is vaccinated because there’s so much angry against the unvaccinated? They’re hurting people, right? So that’s a possibility, right?

They’ve cultivated because they’ve cultivated a fear.

So then there’s Big Pharma, the money to be made and they’re against, by the way, anti vax solutions like ivermectin and all these things hydrochloric. So which are proven to work. There are non vax solutions out there that have been out there for a long time. Ok, right? So then the perhaps another reason why is to get rid of people who you can’t control from power?

Hmm, that’s interesting. Get rid of people from control of power. You mean like they get fired because they’re not complying with the vaccine passport or they quit because they’re that looks better on their transcript, right? So basically flushing those conservatives or people who would be critical thinkers and be pushing against just following? Yeah, right. Pushing them out.

Collect data for future control purposes. Ok, doorway to control populations with future shots or no freedom. There’s people that got one or two shots that are like reluctantly got one or two shots. I just want it to go away. I’m going to do my part. They believe it’s under the banner of loving thy neighbor. And so they do this thing OK. And now they’re like, Well, you’re no better than someone that got zero shots unless you get the next shot. And then pretty soon, you’re no better than with your three shots than unvaccinated unless you also take the pill. There’s a pill coming. Ok. Pills bigger. I don’t know what they need a pill for. So now illusion, this is an illusion of freedom purchased by controlling your body. Do not comply. Now, let’s go back through this and have some discussion around this. I’m not saying I’m right. This is what flowed out on a whiteboard and Angie not discussed, but I was just trying to get my head around this because there’s there’s a sticking point. Why would most importantly, maybe we skip right to the sangeet, which is why are the vaccinated is so angry at the unvaccinated if they believe the vaccine works well?

And it’s not just anger, because anger in my mind is one thing. There’s also fear, which is even more important. I mean, a lot of times fear is what dictators have controlled countries using. It is the main tool, right? Anybody can shout and be angry, but fear to instill that in other people. That’s where power is. And so what they have created is that the people who are not all people who are vaccinated are this way. We’re not making clothes closet blanket statements here and saying to all people who got vaccinated or are fearful of, No, that’s what I’m saying, because some of you may have gotten vaccinated because you believed that that was the best option at the time. We get it. There’s been a lot of deception that’s happened. The reality is what Isaac and I are talking about is why we need to ask the question why? Why are those who are pro vaccine both angry and fearful of people who are not vaccinated if the vaccine works? Because if the vaccine works, they should be like, Oh, I can live with no fear. I can go out with no mask, I can get it at A.. But the reality is, is they are. Even most of them are even more fearful that you’re there. It’s that agenda that is pushing the whole vaccine passport. I’m afraid you can’t come into my business unless you’ve been vaccinated. Why is that? The reason why is because of two things. Either one, it’s actually more political than it is about. The virus has nothing to do with the virus. It’s a way of dividing the country. And number two, the vaccine doesn’t work

It, and it appears it’s just not working to the level they hoped it would.

And it’s well. And not just is it not working against protecting them from getting COVID, but a lot of them are getting a more dangerous version, a variant of COVID right now.

This is debatable. Like depending on what you listen to, you can believe either direction of that. A lot of people believe the vaccine does help. Well, then why would you be fearful, though? I’m vaccinated, by the way? Twenty seven times the natural immunity is twenty seven times better than the vaccine. This is a vast study. There’s doctors talking about this. You should just Google anything we’re talking about. You do your own research. We’re not going to list things. We have done research. We see what’s out there. We agree that we’re not 100 percent right. I think anybody that says I’m 100 percent right on this. You can’t trust because there’s so many unknowns, but what we can see is human behavior. What we can see is all these different things that happen over the last two years with COVID and what we do and we have to discern with wisdom,

What we do for sure is fear. We for sure see anger. We for sure see people, excluding others because they are full of fear and anger.

So why would you force someone who’s already had COVID like our family? We’ve already had COVID. Why would you force them to get vaccinated when what God already did with our bodies is twenty seven times better than what man has come up with?

Yeah. It doesn’t make any sense, but I mean, everyone knows that common sense has gone out the window with this whole thing in the last.

So natural immunity is great. It’s it’s important. And they thought that the vaccines would help natural immunity. It would add on to it right. We can get more people immune to the vaccine. So there’s people already have it or natural immune and then people get vaccinated and haven’t had it yet. They join in that crowd. Now we can eradicate the virus. Now there’s mutant things that happen, right Delta and moose coming now and these different things. They all know that they all knew that would happen. Right. So what is going on here? There’s a myriad of things for control. We also know on the outside of things that there’s a movement towards Marxism, there’s a movement towards the socialist agenda. There’s a movement towards creating fairness across the board, which creates the most unfair system you can imagine.

But fairness across the board, it only exists when there’s control, and that’s why they’re trying to get control over everyone to be vaccinated.

Well, they seem to go together. They seem to go together, and you can call us a conspiracy theorist, but it’s actually the evidence is everywhere for these things. Again, we don’t know if we’re right. If you got vaccinated, we’re not going to condemn you. You’re welcome in. If I had a business, you’d be welcome in my business to be vaccinated. You’d be welcome in my business if you’re unvaccinated. If I was leading a church, both would be welcome. What is going on is divisive. It’s not right. It’s not what the Bible says we should be doing, and we should not be controlling people and controlling their bodies. Now, if you are in that situation where you’re working in a company with over 100 employees and they’re enforcing this. Then I would say do not comply. I would say make sure they fire you. I wouldn’t walk away. I would say it’s usually better. Make sure you do your research to be fired, then walk away because of something like this. I think that down the road, there’s going to be a lot of retribution for this because this is completely wrong.

And that’s actually what needs to happen in order for things to change is people being brave and standing up and and being willing to take the hit short term for actually, I’m going to just say it for our kids generation. I mean, you guys see the memes, the quotes from Ronald Reagan, from Thomas Paine all over the place, right? That is a cry for freedom in this generation and the next and understanding that we have a responsibility so that our kids can have it. Isaiah forty one point thirteen I just want to share this is a really encouraging versus says for I the Lord, your god, hold your right hand. It is I who say to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you.

God is the one who helps. And, by the way, don’t feel like you’re alone. The nurses and doctors are quitting in the droves. Police officers, firemen are quitting. You know, people who work for the government in all aspects are quitting in the droves. I mean, there is going to be an economic challenge to this. It’s not like you can replace these specialized people, these servants in our public, and it is going to create a challenge. And I think that they need to feel the challenge. If there’s no challenge, then they’ll just go along with the control.

You know, one of the other questions that we were discussing the other day, not just the question of why are people who are vaccinated, fearful and angry at the unvaccinated if it works? We were also just contemplating why is it that they have had such a struggle to find an effective way to test people to see if they have the antibodies? Um, and and if so, if they can’t really fully test people to see if they have the natural immunity, how in the world can they claim that they have a vaccination from that same disease, like the first needs to exist in order for the second to actually happen? So why is it that it’s not an important if it’s really about our health, if it’s really about understanding who is not in danger or not, they would have a clear way for us to be able to determine if you have a natural immunity to COVID. And I know people go, Oh, but then there’s all these different variants and blah blah blah. Yeah, OK. So we had the like, the one of the very first ones. I don’t know if it was original or not. We had it in March before the shelter in place lasted a long time.

You can go back and listen to our podcast. We kept plugging away while we had it, and that was hard. Ok, but it was an it into is a real thing. We had a kid with walking pneumonia, but the reality is, guys, we we did. We haven’t even been sick. We have one. We had one kid that was sick for a very short period of time with something like a year and a half later. But other than that, our whole family, there is 11 of us and we have not been sick at all and there have been multiple variants. So wouldn’t that just tell you like if there’s multiple variants that you’re probably immune to all of them because we’re out and about, we have not worn masks since June or July of 2000 and twenty. We have germ magnets. We have three kids under five. Yeah. So the reality is is why is it that they can’t test people and then make that be like worthy of a stamp and a passport to say you don’t have to get vaccinated? Like, not that we even need that. I’m not saying we need that.

I think they can’t. I think they can’t accurately.

They can’t accurately test it. So if they can accurately test it, we need to ask the next question. Then how can they accurately have something that helps people to not get it?

Now, some people listening, oh, they can actually accurately test it. I don’t. I don’t believe that they can right here at Colossians to eight see to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy. An empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world and not according to Christ. What are the elemental? I like that word elemental. It’s like elementary. It’s like novice. The elementary spirits

Like actual things.

Yeah, tap in a cup. Yeah, so elemental. Elemental spirits of the world. We have to be careful to be obeying. Entrusting tyranny. People going against it

Would be careful. Ok, so careful to not write, be submitting and

Submitting tyranny to tyranny and recognizing, recognizing within ourselves how we might be that slowly cooked frog. Oh, but it’s just this and oh, but we need to love our neighbor and all this will go back and listen to our other episode on on the should Christians be forced to vaccinate. You know, it’s it’s really important that you realize what is next. Like, if we don’t take a stand, if we comply to this kind of thing, then the next thing is going to be worse. Right, we have to take a stand. These are movements we’ve already allowed our statues to be destroyed. Right, that’s a that’s a step towards socialism. I know because I have a lot of family that grew up and lived in Venezuela. That’s a step towards socialism. Ok. All these things that are happening, these steps now, everybody’s used to submitting to putting whatever the government wants to put in their bodies.

Mm hmm. It’s just another step. It’s another elemental spirit, you know?

Right, yeah. So hey, we will make sure we get to practical parenting tips and so forth. But there are over hundred and forty episodes in most of them are like that. This is a parenting podcast. This has everything to do with parenting, especially today.

I I can’t encourage you enough to recognize that as parents, we have to do things sometimes, oftentimes most of the time that sacrifice our own comfort. Ok. I think a while ago, Isaac made a post something about Make sure that your kids are not choosing comfort over freedom. That starts with you as a parent, and I think a lot of times if you guys have been listening to our podcast for any amount of time you’ve gone through the parenting program, you know that we are huge advocates for looking in the mirror for being honest with yourself, taking the rose tinted glasses off and actually asking the hard question of is my child acting this way because they are mimicking me? Are they losing emotional self-control because I don’t practice it in front of them and model it? Are they having this conviction? Because I’m a person of no conviction? I can’t tell you how many times Isaac and I have been in public where we have seen families, where the teenagers are masked up and the parents are walking without a mask. There is division in families that should not exist. And part of that is because those parents have allowed their kids to become indoctrinated with the teaching that they themselves are vehemently against. And so they may be modeling it now, but for the first 14 years of that kid’s life, they were not speaking deep conviction and following your convictions to their kids.

So there’s an unlike mindedness happening within families. I don’t want that. Do you want that? Do you want your kids to grow up and have totally opposite views than you? Or do you want there to be like mindedness? I’ll tell you, we read from Luke twenty one verse 15 today through 19, and it warns us that parents will be turning in kids and brothers, turning into sisters and so forth, and friends and relatives and different things. That is a fruit of not proactively teaching your kids and teaching them the whys behind why you have certain convictions, and it always needs to go back to the Bible. That is a reflection. That warning and Luke twenty one is a reflection of parents, not discipline their kids and teaching them what is most important to where they have a trust and a like mindedness founded on scripture and on Christ. They kids must, regardless of where they go to school, who, what teachers have been in their life, they must have a respect and an honor for their parents to wear. It’s not an enforced thing. It’s not the parent going. You need to respect me instead. It’s the kids going, Oh man, I love and respect my mom and dad because of how they’ve lived their life. I love them. And the reality is that that does not exist in many homes today.

Amen. Well said. Let’s pay attention and let’s support organizations and businesses with over one hundred employees that aren’t going along to get along that are not complying. Let’s find those and encourage them along because we need more companies to stand strong and we need to stand strong. You are your company and when you stand up, maybe others will stand up and it makes a difference.

Yeah. So you guys regarding this podcast, we really would be encouraged if you would share, because likely it’s going to experience censorship somewhere, right? Yeah. And so we know that we talked about it, we contemplated, is this something we should go to? But this is the most relevant thing that you guys are asking questions about right now. You have to ask the hard whys and keep asking why until you hit a brick wall. Teach your kids to always ask Why take them to the word to find your answers? That’s what we do. This is new territory for everybody. And we have the same Bible that you have.

And if you’re like us, you feel it. You feel the wrong. In all of this, you feel the hidden agendas. You can see the lack of logic when you just write it out. It’s crazy. Write it out for yourself and what you see happening. This happened. Get vexed for safety helps herd immunity. Half get vexed. Vaxart are getting sick now. Are the are the vaccine more susceptible?

There’s no value for those natural immunity.

Natural immunity is proven to be better than the vaccine. So what’s going on here? Well, the vaccine are mad at the UN vaccine. Why would they be mad? It’s too late. Is it too late to be wrong about the vaccines? So they’re going to push forward? It’s a it’s so nice to help the vaccine force everyone else to get vaccinated. Why else would they be doing this in a whole slew of reasons, right? You could do your own logic presentation as a married couple to each other and

Even to your kids. Please talk to your kids about this because otherwise, if you if you don’t and you think that they’re they’re too young and they’re not going to get it like they see people wearing masks, they see the signs. If they can read, they see it. You guys, they hear you talking about it somewhat. You need to ask them if they have questions and try to answer the questions in a way that they’re going to understand. Guys, this is the thing we should be valuing all people. And the reality is, those who have natural immunity are not being valued at all. Those who are untaxed are not being valued at all. Babies who are who have been aborted. They have not been valued at all, and that industry has been furthered by these organizations that are pushing vaccinations that should bother us.

So we’re not to have a spirit of the world, we’re supposed to have a spirit of God. And this has the spirit of world of all of us all over it. Ok, well, we’ll be praying for everybody, especially all those messaging us and sharing and talking about it. We do pray for you and we pray that God redeems your hard situations

And that he gives you strength and courage. There’s no reason to fear in this world. Remember what it says in the word OK and Luke, that not hair on your head will be touched. Some may die, but not a hair in your head will be touched because we have eternal life in Jesus Christ alone.
