Stand Up For What You Believe In

In the past, my pastor would say something that was just a little bit too liberal or factually incorrect or incoherent and I would just say “This isn’t the main point of the message” and ignore it. But today he made a number of statements where I knew it was wrong. And usually I would talk to him about it after the sermon. And I take notes of nearly every sermon I hear from people because I actually enjoy how preachers put together their sermons.

But today something different happened. Pastor made the claim that the story of Ruth had some racism in it. Then he made the claim that because the majority of people affected by the coronavirus have been black in Detroit, it was due to RACISM.

IF it was acceptable in Church to stand up and say “Hey now pastor how did you come to that conclusion?” I would.

But this is Zoom.

And the social norms for Church on Zoom haven’t been. Set in stone yet!

So I used the chat to say that it’s because of co factors that black people are affected more. Not because of government or Trump. (He didn’t say Trump but the implication is that Trump is a racist)

It’s because black people and other minorities tend to have worse health outcomes due to cultural factors1. We have more Asthma and COPD. We tend to use food as confront and become obese.

As Adventists, we know how to fix these things.

We know what God desires for us to eat and how to get there.

The Health Message should be preached in our circles.

And even though I’m not a big fan of it, I do know that it’s the right arm of the Gospel! When you heal someone physically, they are MUCH more open to be healed spiritually.

I got texts saying that it was distracting from the sermon. I recognize this.

I also recognize that injecting politics, ESPECIALLY bad politics that reinforces the majority viewpoint in sermons is DISTRACTING.

And what is sad is that I get texts saying “you’re right Spencer” and these people don’t speak up.

It’s like being a Christian or a Republican at work. You are there. Others like you are there. But it’s the Atheists and the Democrats who are “Allowed” to speak their mind freely at work about subjects without any type of backlash. It’s like assumed almost. But most people are too afraid to speak up because they don’t want to be labeled or outed.

But I’m not most people.

I’m Spencer.

And I speak my mind regardless of how much of your feelings it hurts (unless you’re not a Christian and I’m trying to get you to see Jesus in a redemptive manner, then I do care about how you feel)

And I not only speak it, I invite debate. Discussion. Opportunity for anyone to point out how I’m wrong. Because when we openly talk about how we feel and see the world then we can get more data and make better choices. This is a great thing to do at work because then the organization moves quicker and more effectively and is not weighted down by unnecessary baggage, and when you’re working with people and everyone is on the same page, you tend to do better even if everyone is not in agreement.

But if we in the Church are afraid of speaking up, then what are we going to do when the National Sunday Law comes?

When the Churches are Closed?

When the majority takes away rights from then minority?

When they make guns illegal?

When they take your business?

Are we then going to go out and protest? To try to explain to people things when we didn’t develop that muscle earlier when times were good?

Why isn’t the Church doing anything about the hundreds of thousands of people murdered by Planned Parenthood? Who has and will kill many more times than this virus ever did.

A growing majorly of young people are not believing in Free Speech.

Let that not be counted among Seventh-Day Adventists.

Our message of Protest has to live strong among us. We have to be a people who can debate and effectively argue for what we believe in and WHY we believe it. We are PROTESTANTS we should be the Kings of Speaking UP and Speaking OUT! A Protestant is one who protests against the Roman Catholic Church. This means that we are by nature going to be disagreeing with people.

When our boss wants us to work on Sabbath we have to say NO! And we have to be persuasive about it!

Some say that I’m fanatical,
Some say that they don’t like the way I communicate.
Some say that we can’t be offensive.

That if China disagrees then we should comply for the sake of not hurting others feelings.

I’m not going to abuse the chat feature on Zoom but if they turn it off then I’m going to point out that this is what leftist ideology does and we need to root it out of our Churches.

I’m not a go along to get along kind of guy and maybe that is a fault of mine.

But I’m going to stand at the watchtower and point out enemies both foreign and domestic, in Love.

  • Did the Chinese create the Virus?
  • How does the Virus affect Trump? Is he to blame for the situation in the United States?
  • Is the Corona Virus leading up to the New World Order?
  • How should conservatives think about the expansion of Government under a pandemic?
  • Is it the job of the Federal Government to protect its Citizens from Foreign Diseases?

  • Was Closing off the Nation’s Borders a Good Thing?
  • Is this just a preparation for an EMP or a Bomb to measure how Americans will react to a larger crisis?

Avoid Collectivism

A lady at the State of the Union watch party said that she was about to curse after seeing Nancy Pelosi With that look on her face. I then said to her that we must Love our enemies. She then told me that it was hard.

Now I’m not a fan of the Democrats. I don’t like their support for #Abortion, their denial of God, their wanting to grow government to take over people’s lives and choice. I have many things to say about them.

But what we must do is to not fall into the idea of collectivism. One of the main differences between the Left and the Right is that the Left sees group identity as more important than individual identity. They see the world as black, white, gay, female, Democrat and Republican.

Eugene Prewitt: The Adventist Jordan Peterson

Eugene Prewitt is a Speaker who has started missionary schools in Malaysia.

Eugene William Prewitt is the Adventist Jordan Peterson. Its like what would happen if Jordan Peterson became a Christian with Faith in Jesus Christ. He speaks his mind without fear and bases everything upon the Word of God. I had the opportunity to interview him and talk about many subjects, including his message to the Church if he should be killed.

If you’re born in India, you’re a Hindu. If you’re born in Greece, you’re orthodox, but if you’re born in Afghanistan You’re a Muslim. If you’re born in Thailand, you’re a Buddhist. If you’re born in the Southern United States, you’re a Christian. If you’re born in China, there is a good chance you’re an Atheist or a Buddhist. I think that’s ridiculous, Its ridiculous that people when it comes to something so important as religion, would base their belief system primary on what their parents and great-grandparents believe. Lets not assume that we have the right religion. Lets back up and ask enough questions so that if we just so happen to be born in the wrong country, we can arrive at the Truth based on the Data.

Confronting White Supremacy

Spencer Goes to the Black Jewish Justice Alliance Heschel/King Forum with his MAGA gear to ask a very simple question. “What is White Supremacy?”

The following is a very in-depth conversation among activists about the idea of White Supremacy.

The Following other topics were also discussed.
– Being a Jew.
– Pretending to the Roman Catholic.
– Trying to achieve a world where you don’t assume someone’s gender.
– Hair as apart of culture.

The conversation was impactful because no one expected a Young Black Conservative to show up asking very simple questions.

What I learned is that White Supremacy is so pervasive, so integral, so ingrained and embedded in Western Society that it is invisible! And one of the youth on a panel told me that White Supremacy is to the point in our society that if you removed it, you would not see ANY difference in our society! INCREDIBLE! I hope I’m able to come back and have such transformative dialogue!

Encountering White Supremacy here sponsored by the #blackjewish Justice Alliance was a wonderful way to look inside the minds of The Left. There is Hope for the Future Guys!

God Emperor Trump

It is no secret that I’ve supported the Republican nominee for President: But some people take it a bit too far. This week I was at a rally in Los Angeles for Travis Allen, who is running for Governor of California. There after the rally a lady was going around saying that everyone should read a certain book. Naturally, because of the way I am, I ask why? The interaction went like this:
