Today many Evangelical churches have turned into a constant Trump rally. We are on the verge of war and many leaders such as pastor Robert Jeffress who is encouraging the president to go to war a Old Testament warrior for God. These churches as Isaiah puts it have become worthless assemblies whos worship is detestable to God. Instead what does God tell Isaiah? He tells the people to seek justice, to stop doing wrong, to defend the oppressed not to blow them up! to look after the widows and children. Basically to be like Jesus!
This is the 100th episode of this podcast, and I will be honest it has been a complete failure. With just a few downloads per episode I should just give up. That is what I should do, it is not what I am going to do. In my life I have been a failure, so I should give up there also. Stop chasing my dreams and realize I am just a working stiff. No, not going to do that either. I encourage you to listen and be motivated.

Nate takes on this issue in part 2 of the discussion.
