Episode Points:

Mental Health is Optional


Scriptures Studied:

Matthew 24:21 (ESV) For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.

Isaiah 14:13–14 (ESV) You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’

Ezekiel 28:14–19 (ESV) You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you…. 17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you. …19 All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.”

Romans 1:18–24 (ESV) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves…

Romans 1:29 (ESV) They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.


Questions to Consider:

  1. What are the implications of Islam’s influence on Western culture? How should Christians approach diverse religious practices in societal institutions like schools, considering their faith convictions?
  2. What Biblical passages reflect on the concepts of self-worship and pride? How do Christians navigate societal changes such as the rise of “woke” culture and its impact on mental health and faith perspectives?
  3. How does the engagement with social media platforms like TikTok intersect with Christian values? Should Christians advocate for certain media bans or regulations based on moral principles? Discuss the tensions between freedom of expression and ethical considerations.
  4. Reflecting on the psychiatrist’s recommendations and the book “Bad Therapy,” how can individuals and families apply principles of mental wellness from both secular and Christian perspectives? In what ways can Christian communities provide support and understanding for individuals struggling with mental health issues?

Tonight, we need to have a conversation about mental health, and perhaps more importantly, about your kids’ mental health. Some research has come out, and in fact, a book that I can’t wait to recommend has been released that will help you manage mental health better than you’ve ever thought possible.

We also need to discuss the soft, encroaching takeover Islam is making against the West, and Congress wants to ban TikTok. But let’s be honest, Congress’s intentions are far more nefarious than what you’re hearing in the news outlets, and I want to cover that. This is your favorite show of the week, “The Deep End of the Hatch Live.”

Welcome, everyone, to Tuesday night at 7:30 PM, where we dive deep into the news of the day from a Christian worldview. This is Season 7, Episode 19, and I am your humble host.

Imagine, if you would, doing me the favor of clicking that like button, the notification button, and the subscribe button to get notified every time we go live on your smartphone device, tablet, computer, or wherever you are. We want to get this content into your head to help you navigate the craziness of our culture with Christian faith.

Before we dive deeper, I want to make sure you know that this content is for educational purposes only. When I share clips or discuss notable people in the world, it’s because I’m educating Christians.

Now, let’s talk about a recent revelation from a psychiatrist who discovered that he would lose 75% of his patients if they made two lifestyle changes. What are those two things? Well, let’s dive into that in the “Deep End News” segment.

This won’t be hard-hitting news for those of you with a brain, and you must understand that your brain was given to you by God. As a Christian, you are created to love the Lord your God first and foremost—that’s the first and greatest commandment.

Did you know that Jesus expands on this in the New Testament? He adds a part about loving the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. Your mind needs to be focused on the Lord; your mind needs to be cultivated. Christians are not ignorant; they are called to be smart and wise, as Jesus teaches in Matthew.

Let’s discuss cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Basically, it is common sense: work out, eat right, get regular sleep, and observe the Sabbath. These practices contribute significantly to mental well-being. Too many people, including Christians, are overly stressed due to an excessive focus on their feelings. What you do shapes how you feel, not the other way around. Your feelings are not an accurate barometer of your life; you must do things even when you don’t feel like it.

CBT helps in recognizing distortions in thinking and reevaluating them in light of reality. It’s about facing fears instead of avoiding them, using problem-solving skills, and developing confidence. It involves facing reality, gaining an understanding of behavioral motivations, solving problems effectively, and building confidence in your abilities. Additionally, it encourages facing fears, role-playing to prepare for challenging interactions, and learning to calm the mind and body.

In summary, mental health is optional; you do not have to be a slave to your feelings. Your mind can be influenced by the choices you make, and focusing on God and healthy practices can significantly improve mental well-being.

I am reading a fabulous book, and I cannot recommend this book enough. Let’s delve into Pastor’s recommendation.

The new book I’m reading is by Abigail Schreyer, whom I am a fan of, by the way. The new book is called “Bad Therapy: Why Kids Aren’t Growing Up.” Every parent in America should read this book.

There’s another book that I’ve recently read by George Barna, and this Thursday, I’ll be releasing an interview with George Barna on his book, “Raising Spiritual Champions.” You do not want to miss it, so subscribe to the channel.

Abigail Schreyer, you might remember, I recommended her first book, “Irreversible Damage,” which studied the effect of the current transgender social contagion that’s impacting young women. It’s a fabulous book, incredibly well-researched, informative, and easy reading as well. I love Abigail’s approach to these topics. She does all the work, studies, and then presents the data in an easy-to-understand format. It’s crucial for protecting your family, raising your children, and embracing common sense truth.

The basic premise of the book “Bad Therapy: Why Kids Aren’t Growing Up” is that Americans, on the whole, are overdosing on useless therapy. We are told to focus excessively on our feelings, coddled by over-involved parents who often project their depression and anxiety onto children. It’s not easy reading for the easily triggered, but it’s good reading for people who refuse to blame their parents and take responsibility for their lives.

Let’s delve into one of the chapters, the 10-step guide to bad therapy, which I believe is in Chapter 3. You don’t have to get far into the book to reach that chapter, but it is phenomenal. Here are a few steps highlighted from the book:

1. Teach kids to pay close attention to their feelings. Abigail emphasizes that in an individualistic society like ours, we often believe that feelings accurately signal who we are, but in reality, feelings are responsive to many cues, often leading us astray. It’s crucial to focus on actions rather than feelings.

2. Induce rumination. Contrary to common beliefs, the book suggests that some level of repression can be beneficial. Overly focusing on emotional pain can exacerbate depression.

3. Make happiness a goal but reward emotional suffering. The book discusses how societal rewards often favor discussing emotional pain rather than acknowledging accomplishments or merit.

4. Affirm and accommodate kids’ worries. Exposing children to challenges helps them overcome anxieties, whereas avoidance only worsens their fears.

5. Monitor over-monitoring. Helicopter parenting or snowplow parenting can lead to increased anxiety in children. Monitoring every aspect of a child’s life can induce stress and hinder their development.

6. Dispense diagnoses liberally. Not everyone needs a diagnosis, and overdiagnosing can lead to unnecessary stress and medication.

7. Drag them. Relying solely on medications like antidepressants does not address the root causes of mental health issues and can lead to adverse side effects.

8. Encourage kids to share their traps. Focusing excessively on childhood trauma can hinder personal growth and resilience.

9. Encourage young adults to break contact with toxic families. Blaming parents for all unhappiness in adulthood is not healthy and can lead to unnecessary family estrangement.

10. Create treatment dependency. Therapists profiting from keeping clients dependent on therapy rather than fostering healthy relationships can hinder personal growth.

“Bad Therapy: Why Kids Aren’t Growing Up” by Abigail Shryer is a must-read. I am reaching out to her, hoping she will come on the show for an interview about the book because it is phenomenal. Get your copy today and delve into these critical discussions about mental health and family dynamics.


Anyway, we need to discuss the fact that Muslims are coming to our country. There’s a whole new movement among public school educators and even the Pope to welcome the Islamic takeover of our world. Let’s do “Pastor Reacts.”

Yes, the Muslims are coming, and I have no doubt that they will eventually take over the West. Yes, you heard that correctly. Muslims, Islam, I think, is going to be the tool by which the devil ultimately starts to coordinate the one-world government, the dictator beast, the false prophet, and allegiance to this one-world religion that will promise a false peace. Eventually, 3 1/2 years into the tribulation, we’ll see the wheels fall off, the contract with Israel broken, and the eventual worldwide persecution of Christians and Jews to an extent that we have never seen before. That’s what I think is going to happen when we pay attention to Islam.

Christians, we need to pay attention to Islam with the idea that they will have, I believe, a huge hand in the domination of the world, leading to the one-world government, one-world religion, one-world economic system, and the ultimate colonizing of all people groups in the name of one movement.

Now, the Muslims were set back a bit after World War One, but they were not done. Instead of trying to take over the West by violent force, they are encroaching subtly, doing it far more benignly, if you will. And most Americans are too busy being nice; most Westerners are too busy being nice that they ignore the hard facts.

Here’s what’s happening in Massachusetts: the Westboro public school system has scrapped Good Friday as a day off to go with full days off for Muslim and Hindu holidays. Good Friday, the report says from Boston, will no longer be a day off for students in Westboro, Massachusetts, starting next school year. Instead, the school will give students days off for a Hindu holiday and another for a Muslim holiday.

During the January 31st, 2024, meeting of the Westborough school committee, the committee approved changes recommended by Superintendent Amber Bach to the school year calendar. Yeah, wow. This is amazing to see happen. So now, no more Good Friday off; you have to have this day off for Ramadan or for Diwali.

A funny story about this for me in my own life: I was driving around shopping with my son one October morning, I think it was a Saturday, and he said, “Oh no school on Monday.” And I said, “Why?” This was several years ago, and my son was going to a public school in Cumberland, Rhode Island. And he said, “Because it’s Diwali.” And I said, “What do you mean, it’s Wally?” And I don’t know if you’ve ever watched “The Office,” but there’s that whole episode in season five or three where Kelly introduces the whole staff to Diwali. I knew it was a Hindu religious festival, so my son’s like, “Yeah, Diwali tomorrow.” I said, “Your school’s celebrating Diwali?” He said yes. So I called the school, and the principal answered – well, she called me back actually – and she said, “Yes, Mr. Hatch?” I said, “I have a question about Diwali being celebrated at the school tomorrow. Is that true?” She said yes. I said, “That’s not good. It’s a religious holiday. And what about the separation of church and state?” She said, “Oh no, it’s not a religious holiday; it’s an Indian holiday.” I said, “It’s a religious holiday.” So she said, “Let me call you back.” She called me back. She said, “You’re right, Mr. Hatch, it’s a religious holiday. We’re going to have to cancel th—” She said, “We only had it there because most of the school is—” or no, a good percentage of our school is Indian. I said, “You understand that most Indians, many Indians are not Hindu. Many Indians are Muslim and atheist and Christian. And so Hinduism is not a one-size-fits-all for India, and vice versa.” But at least she did not know this. These are the people educating our children. But I single-handedly stopped the Diwali celebration in my kids’ elementary school, and I encourage you to do the same if you hear anything like this coming from your kids’ mouth. You call that school and you call them out on the separation of church and state because if it’s going to flow this way for Christians, it better flow that way for Muslims and Hindus. But right now, the movement is well underway.

The Conversation reports 19 US school districts are closed for Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that follows Ramadan. Axios reports an increasing number of school districts from New Jersey to Miami to Palm Beach County to Hilliard School Board of Education in Ohio to Melville in Missouri are all starting to practice days off for Ramadan and Diwali across the country.

What’s coming next? Well, of course, Islamic education in the public school system. You say no, not possible. OK, just check out Budbrook Elementary School, where they treated out the papers, class are studying “The Proudest Blue.” This is a book about a girl who wears her hijab to school for the first time. The children were very excited to see Mrs. Hacks’ different-colored hijabs and try them on. Could you imagine a public school teacher handing out little necklaces with a cross on it and saying, “We were so excited to try on our different-colored crosses”? It would never happen in Britain’s public schools, never ever, ever. Britain has a state religion, Anglicanism, but they wouldn’t do that. Could you imagine a public school teacher organizing for kids to wear “What Would Jesus Do” bracelets for the week to study Christianity? It ain’t happening.

See, Christianity was removed, and it left the void, left the vacuum, and the vacuum is going to be filled by Islam, I’m telling you right now, it’s going to happen. Westboro High School schools in Massachusetts will be celebrating Diwali as well. The business community, capitalism, isn’t in vogue. Business reports as Roberton shifts, earlier luxury brands scramble to take full advantage. So they want to formulate this race to tap into Ramadan’s growing market potential. A deep dive with Vogue Business. Yes, in other words, these people are going to be celebrating the new in-vogue religion of the day. So we might as well capitalize on it and produce products that we can hawk to the religious worshippers.

This is as the secular left continues to bow the knee to Islam all over the place. We have reported on this; you know, schools in Britain and Canada who have bowed down, who have kowtowed to Muslim protests against LGBTQ ideology. And this is also starting to happen in America. It’s amazing if Christians show any kind of resistance to LGBTQ, we’re considered hateful, bigoted homophobes. But if the Muslims do it, they’re perfectly fine. It’s just they’re practicing their free exercise of religion.

And yes, we will remove that curriculum for the sake of our Islamic parents who have a problem with it. Last month, this is not a joke. Last month, in a Minnesota school district, allowed families to opt out, Muslim families to opt out, of a gender identity and sexual curriculum from its public schools to cater to them. It’s amazing to see public schools cater so willingly only to one particular religion.

The reason I think this is happening is very simple. It’s very simple. Islam, and this is going to trigger somebody, this might get the video taken down, this might get YouTube censorship applied. So make sure you’re subscribed to the Patreon, make sure you’re following me on X, make sure you’re following me everywhere else, Rumble.

Here’s why: because I think Islam and LGBTQ are inspired by the same person, the devil. They’re on the same page. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Our children are being enslaved by these practices and ideologies.

Catholics, I love you, but listen up. Your Pope, he’s got serious issues. Just this past week, the Vatican sent greetings to Muslims and called them brothers and sisters at the start of Ramadan. The Pope sent this message that reads, “We Christians and Muslims are called to be bearers of hope for the present life and for the life to come and to be witnesses, restorers, and builders of this hope, especially for those experiencing difficulties and despair. Our prayers are with you. We send best wishes for a peaceful and fruitful Ramadan and for a joyful Eid al-Fitr.” Yikes. This is the Pope, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and he’s calling Muslims brothers and sisters. This is anathema. This is a false gospel. No, Muslims do not worship the same God as Christians. No, no, no, no, no.

Yes, Islam teaches about Jesus. They teach that he switched places with Judas at the last moment, Judas went to the cross, Jesus went to heaven. He’s coming back, and then when he comes back, he’s going to die. Did you know that? That’s what Islam actually teaches about Jesus. They believe he’s a prophet, one of many prophets. But they don’t believe he’s God the Son, God in the flesh, and they don’t believe that Jesus died for our sins. You cannot call brothers and sisters people who deny the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins. You cannot call them brothers and sisters.

And I don’t care who gets triggered by this; this is the truth. Too many pastors are weak-willed. Too many Catholic leaders are weak-willed. They’re limp-wristed; they cannot stand for the truth. And shame on them. Shame on them. Better watch out before somebody in the YouTube comments calls me angry. I’m not angry; I’m passionate because this is worth fighting for and teaching you about because the world is being very subtly taken over by Islam. It’s going to happen. They are a force the devil is going to use to inaugurate the tribulation.

Just 10 years ago, The Washington Post had this headline: “A Majority of Muslims in Egypt and Pakistan Support the Death Penalty for Leaving Islam.” Think about it. And then, a recent report said 80% of Muslims in those countries and Jordan and all the countries around Israel favor the death penalty if you leave Islam. I have a pastor on staff we’ve interviewed among us; you know, his whole family doesn’t talk to him anymore because he left Islam. He got saved, he’s a born-again Christian, he loves Jesus, he’s serving Jesus, and he has only one family now, his church family.

Reuters reported, this is back in 2013, “Many in the Muslim world want Sharia as the law of the land.” I think it’s something like 40 to 50% of Muslims in the Muslim world want Sharia, Sharia law to be the law of the land. That is, if a woman is uncovered in any way, she could be disowned by her husband, divorced for any reason. You cut off hands of thieves; yeah, that might actually not be a bad law to bring back. Homosexuals are to be thrown off the roof. Hello, LGBTQ people, are you aware? Are you aware of what the Muslims are going to do when they come for you?

Amazing how uninformed, however, the Pope, the education system, and the cultural movers and shakers, the secular leftists and Hollywood and elsewhere are to this dominant religion. This, I call it a colonizing religion.

Yes, friends, the Muslims are coming. How is the world going to become one religion? Right there, they’ve already taken over historic Christian and Jewish sites in Israel. They’ve already taken over Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus. They’ve taken over large portions of the Holy Land. They’ve taken over entire countries that used to be friendly with the United States, including Iran. Iran, Iran, in the 70s was a partner with America. Islam came in, took it over, and now Iran is the chief funder of terrorism worldwide. You’ve got to know your history.

So many Christians, so many pastors, so many Catholics uninformed about the trajectory of the last 40 to 50 years concerning Islam. It’s coming; it’s coming for you, it’s coming for your children if you’re not aware. Pew Research estimates that the population will be dominated by Muslims by the year 2060. There will be more Muslims in the world than almost anybody else according to Pew Research. Unbelievable. This is why Jesus says in this Olivet discourse in Matthew 24:21, “There will be great tribulation such as not been from the beginning of the world until now, and no, never will be.” Christians have been worried about secularization, secularists, Hollywood. Those people have no spine; they’re bowing the knee; they’re caving to Muslims. Look at just for instance how many times will they write a movie or produce a movie that mocks Christianity, time and time again? “Life of Brian,” “The Book of Clarence” produced by Jay-Z recently, “The Last Temptation of Christ.” They will disparage; they will blaspheme; they will mock Christians left, right, and center. They use Jesus Christ as a swear word in every media outlet. And they will never do these things with Islam, never. They will never take a little statue of Muhammad and put him in urine; they will never paint Mohammed because the Muslims don’t allow it. What, what did the Christians that allow? “Don’t take the name of the Lord your God in vain and how it was like.” So what? We’re doing it when the Muslims come. My question is, what are we going to be? Because our historically Christian environment is decreasing. Breitbart reported a survey, 8 in 10 Americans say religion is losing its effect or influence on public life. That’s not true. The Christian religion is losing its influence in public life. I will attest to that, but Islam is ready to take that place.

So the question is, when they come, what society will they find? What society will these new religious devotees find in America when they come? I depressed 1A depressed one because we’re so busy being woke, we don’t realize that being woke is one of the most depressing realities you can experience in life. This article from Side Post study, quote woke, and quote attitudes linked to anxiety, depression, and lack of happiness back to mental illness.

Tonight, a new psychological assessment has been developed to measure the endorsement of attitudes related to critical social justice. Findings from its application in a finished study revealed that stronger alignment with these so-called woke beliefs correlates with heightened instances of anxiety and depression, as detailed in a publication in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology. The article goes on – the rise of critical social justice, which focuses on identifying and addressing systemic inequalities across various identity groups, has prompted discussions on its influence in academia, politics, and everyday life. This particular orientation towards social justice, often associated with concepts like intersectionality, anti-racism, and colloquially wokeness, has been both lauded for its recognition of systemic barriers faced by marginalized groups and critiqued for its approach to identity and free speech.

These were the test statements that they measured people’s mental health by: “If white people have, on average, a higher level of income than black people, is it because of racism?” If you agree with that, you are woke and you are more depressed. Or another one, “University reading lists should include fewer white or European authors.” Microaggressions should be challenged often and actively. So, if you’re handed, because I don’t know your teacher, you had, you read a book with the N-word in it, that’s a microaggression, and then the teacher can get fired for it.

Oh, by the way, there’s another movie I would recommend. This little soft recommendation is called “American Fiction,” and it starts with this scene where this black professor is fired; he’s released from his professorship because he had the kids read Flannery O’Connor’s phrase using the N-word, and they fired him for it because some white student was offended by the use of Flannery O’Connor’s quote, and the black professor was fired. That’s called microaggression should be challenged often and actively.

Trans women who compete with women in sports are not helping women’s rights (reverse scored). We don’t need to talk any more about the color of people’s skins. No, we do, and the more we do, the more depressed we are. Yes, this is true. Another one, “A white person cannot understand how a black person feels equally well as another black person or a member of a privileged group could adopt features or cultural elements of a less privileged group that would be called what is that called cultural appropriation.” So yeah, if you’re against those things or for those things, you’re depressed.

The article went on to stipulate that agreement with the statement “If white people have, on average, higher income than black people, is it because of racism?” exhibited the largest positive correlation with anxiety and depression and the largest negative correlation with happiness. Yeah, it turns out if you focus on things that you actually can’t do anything about, you get more depressed.

Is this something the article goes on? It says that three out of five women view woke ideas positively, but only one out of seven men. Christian men, stay strong here because you might be dating the woke girl. You need to maybe drop her, move on, find a girl that will listen and support truth. Listen to truth and support biblical truth, that is, not your truth, biblical truth.

The study also uncovered variations in critical social justice attitudes across different demographic and social groups. Higher levels of agreement with critical social justice were notably present among individuals who identified with left-wing political parties and female university students in fields such as social sciences, education, and humanities. Yikes, this is Western civilization continuing its trend toward therapeutic suicide. That is exactly what it is.

Pew Research finds that white liberals are disproportionately suffering from mental illness, far more than double their conservative counterparts, particularly among white people. White young liberals are disproportionately depressed because of their woke ideologies. Conservatively, conservative-leaning people are typically some of the happiest people in the country, less likely to see a doctor for their mental health condition. And in case you were wondering, a conservative usually believes, not all but some, most usually believe in less government in traditional marriage, men and women, and life begins in the womb, and faith and church attendance are invaluable to your life. They also believe that Joe Biden is as dumb as a rock.

What kind of society will these new religious devotees find in the West when the Muslims come? They will find you. Ottawa public school board proposes allowing students without passing grades to participate in graduation. In the world, it gets more and more stupid, the less and less rooted in biblical truth it becomes because, of course, fools despise wisdom.

This is the news report on the graduation ceremony changes from an Ottawa news station. Watch this. Katie Griffin is here with details on this. Katie?

Well, Graham, the school board says changing graduation to commencement would make things more inclusive, so much so that those who aren’t graduating can still participate. It’s a milestone students work towards for years, so if you don’t pass, why would you get to go to the graduation? The Ottawa Carleton District School Board is updating its graduation policy, renaming it commencement to include all students, even those who are not getting diplomas; they haven’t graduated essentially. So walking across the stage is something that you work towards; there might be another way, I’m sure they can come up with including them but not walking across the stage. The proposed policy acknowledges some students may not be graduating for a variety of reasons but that it should not preclude them from celebrating their achievements.

The way I look at it, any student who has gone through high school has worked very hard. There are going to be students with special education needs who are never going to be able to qualify for an OSD who have worked very hard by the end of their time in high school. And to allow recognition to those students of all of their hard work makes a lot of sense to me. The board is also looking at phasing out towards renaming them achievements. Oh my word! Can we just look at this guy, girl, guy? What is he? We don’t know. I am guessing; I don’t know why I think he’s trans. I’m guessing nonbinary. How about you? Yeah, that’s my guess.

Oh, the West continues cultural suicide – we need to talk about TikTok! Okay, I’m on TikTok, not officially. If you message me on TikTok, I won’t respond because I’m not running it; the team is running it. The team, if you’re dependable, you know the team. They run the TikTok channel. But anyway, we’ve got to talk about TikTok because I think this is a Trojan horse, in the words of Thomas Massey, to give the president more power. Let’s talk about it.

Yeah, I’m politicked. So, Christian Headlines is reporting why Congress’s attempt to ban TikTok matters. The House of Representatives just passed a bill to ban TikTok. Now, the law goes to the Senate. The Senate has to pass it, then it gets to the president’s desk, and the president has vowed that he will sign it. But it may face a tough test in the Senate chamber. The question for all of us, of course, is: should this actually happen? Should TikTok be banned? And I say no. You say, “Oh, I know you are.” You say, “Because it’s about freedom of speech.” Nope. “Oh, because you’re pro-capitalist.” Nope. “Oh, because TikTok is secretly manipulated by the Chinese Communist Party.” No, that’s not why I’m concerned. Those are all true concerns, and they are valid. They are valid concerns, and I want to talk about those valid concerns for why TikTok should be banned.

First, the Chinese Communist Party requires all Chinese tech companies to surrender any data, regardless of the privacy laws in the country in which that data is acquired. A former ByteDance employee, that is the American TikTok parent company, alleged that the government monitored activists in the Hong Kong democracy protest in 2018. And last year, we reported on this show how Osama bin Laden’s letter to America went viral on TikTok and caused young people to feel sympathy for the terrorists who killed 3000 Americans. It was nonsense, and it can take users as little as 10 minutes on TikTok to begin seeing recommended explicit content, subjects like suicide, drugs, and a host of other topics that threaten our geopolitical issues.

Well, the bill passed Congress, and the movement was started on TikTok to call congressmen, and the kiddos did what the kiddos do: they threatened to kill themselves. “Kill this,” “I’m not going to kill myself,” “You won’t let me cut off my penis, I’m going to kill myself.” Oh, let me transition into another, “Gonna kill myself.” I mean, this is what kids do. I mean, kids threaten to kill themselves when you make them eat their peas. For having sex? Well, that did not go very well.

Here’s the report though that I want to give you: NBC even acknowledges that if the bill passed, Biden could use authority to compel ByteDance to sell TikTok. And I don’t like that language. I don’t like bills that give the president more power, and you shouldn’t like bills that give the president more power, even if you’re a liberal or a conservative. You should want the president to have less power because we are not a dictatorship. We are not looking for a singular leader to tell us what to do. No, that’s what representation means. That’s what representative government means. That’s why we have two chambers that have to pass the bill before the president can sign it. That’s why even when he vetoes, there’s a veto override provision in the Constitution, to make sure that one man does not have all this power.

So, BPR, Business and Politics Reports, Thomas Massey, Representative, called TikTok’s ban a Trojan horse that would give massive censorship power to the president. Every American is not okay with this law because you do not want to be living under a president that basically decides who and what can be on the social media platforms you can use. If Congress wants to pass a law based on their constituents calling them and saying, “I want to pass this law,” and it passes because of that, well then there’s another thing. But we cannot, we must not, allow the president to have more power. I don’t care if it’s Trump, I don’t want Trump to have the power to arbitrarily decide what platforms should or should not be allowed on your device or what websites you should be able to watch or view. I think laws can be passed, but the president should not have the power. Elon Musk tweeted about it; this law is not just about TikTok, it’s about censorship and government control. The term “for adversary-controlled application” in this bill means a website. Imagine the president banning a website. Gee, I wonder why. I wonder why good old Nancy Pelosi loves this bill.

This morning, was a vote to protect the national security of our country and the privacy of our citizens. Yeah, I wonder why Nancy loves this bill because Nancy wants Biden’s second term to be filled with the power to remove one pesky social media company that the Liberal Democrats cannot control. That is Elon Musk’s company, and you need to be aware of this, and I need to be telling you this. Okay, so that’s the news of the day, of the world.

I have made the requested revisions to the text:

Let’s talk about Christian news, church news—this one you’re not going to believe. This is a sermon for the books. Imagine your pastor taking to the stage on Sunday morning and preaching on the topic of “What if God worships us?” Yeah, I kid you not.

We’re going to head to Seattle—yes, so this is Pastor Jamal Witherspoon of the Common Good Church in Bellevue, WA. They are doing a series called “All In,” and a message that appears to be removed from their YouTube account as of this afternoon, but he preached on the topic of God worshipping us. Watch this, “What if God worships me?” Can you say that with me, “What if God worships me?” “We declare that you are God that worships us, that’s how much you love us, that’s how much you desire us, that’s how much you are for us.”

Or when we step into your presence, we come with our full house. Notice the full evangelical non-denom vibe here too that they are using to leverage this heresy fully naked and I close, and there is no shame because what you have created since the very beginning, you declare good and well. That’s bad theology right there, friends. Yes, God created it very good when He created man and woman to have dominion, ruling to do. But they subjected themselves to the devil’s lies, followed him, and surrendered their dominion, and the world is consequently not good—it’s broken, corrupted, suffering, and subjected to ******* by Adam’s failure to follow God. That’s why your grandma got cancer, why children die, why people have miscarriages, why we have wars, pestilences, pandemics, and plagues, and tornadoes. Yeah, things are not good, things are evil. The God of this world is blinding the minds of unbelievers. How’s that happening? Because that world God created as good, yes, before sin entered, it is now caked in and deteriorating by sin.

What is this though? You know you have to think about the idea of who else wanted God to worship him? Who else wanted the place of God? Because when we ask or think that God worships us, we are taking the place of God. We are to worship Him, celebrate and glorify Him. We are created; the Westminster Catechism states this: “We are created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” Isaiah 43, “All whom I have created for My glory.” We are created for His glory, to reflect His glory, honor Him, glorify Him, praise Him, and worship Him. “Enter His gates with Thanksgiving in your heart, enter His courts with praise.” To Him belongs eternal praise.

I mean passage after passage of the Bible talks about the human condition, broken, stained, and corrupted by sin, and God’s condition in it, completely perfect, holy, righteous, altogether wonderful, beautiful, glorious, abides in unapproachable light, the Bible says. And we have pastors now talking about Christians being worshipped by God. What utter nonsense! They’re not Christians, by the way, and I’m going to talk about that in just a moment.

But remember the character in the Bible that worshipped? What was his name? Oh yeah, Lucifer. Two passages of the Bible talk about this. Isaiah 14 verse 13, “You set in your heart”—this is Lucifer, the Archangel, “You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven above the stars of God; I’ll set my throne on high. I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the far reaches of the north.’ He wanted worship. ‘I want to be like the Most High.’ Any desire to be as God is a satanic desire. And anyone who says maybe God worships us is preaching Satanism—that is full-on Satanism.”

And by the way, the message is filled with female pronouns for God, denies the atonement, denies penal substitution, the work of the cross—all annulled. This is basic common secular progressive Christianity nonsense, again, not Christianity at all.

Ezekiel 28, “You were anointed guardian cherub by God; you were on the holy mountain of God and amidst the stones of fire. You walked; you were blaming all your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you.” This is Lucifer, Satan, the God of this world. “Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.”

My word, you know this is called apostasy—following the devil, you corrupted your wisdom, you became corrupted in your mind. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind.” This is just par for the course in churches that do this kind of thing.

Four years earlier, one of their pastors, Royce Wenyuen, preached a message “Should Christians shift on biblical sexuality like they did on astronomy?” So four years, that’s the trajectory. Shift on gender and sexuality, four years later, “God worships us.”

This is Romans 1 stop because they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, animals, and creeping things. The more we worship creation, the less we understand and worship God, and the more futile we become in our thinking.

And then notice the implications of this idolatry of man—filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice, envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness, gossip, slander, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless—these are the natural and normative fruits, if you will, of the flesh nature wherein we turn in on ourselves and decide that we could be God and we should be worshipped.

And bad news, friends, Kanye West is in the process of going in this exact trajectory. Yes, Kanye, it was a great run, boy. I was taken in by A22 gospel albums, Jesus King, the Kanye church tour all around the country. Woo, woo, we’re all so excited, it looks so genuine. Then he had his run-in with his anti-Trump crowd, a divorce from Kim Kardashian, mental health breakdown, and he’s at a place where apostates end up—worshipping self and disavowing Jesus because God did not cater to his ideas.

Here he is on an interview on what looks like Big Boy TV, some radio station. He dropped the con that his Christianity is genuine, and then the bomb gets dropped at 1:59, “Are you in that space where you’re comfortable enough to say, ‘This is where I am right now, I’m still a man of God, Jesus still is king, but this is the truth right now, this is where I am.'” It is, but I, you know, I have my issues with Jesus.

There’s a lot of stuff I went through that I prayed and I ain’t see Jesus show up. So I had to put my experience in this world, my experience with my children, my experience with other people, my experience with my account, my experience with my brand, and my experience with the level of music that I was dealing with in my own hands. Like a lot of times, I just feel like in our society and America, you know, people, Christians will depend on Jesus so much that they won’t put the word in ourselves. And the main thing that really I don’t rock with—it’s like it’s just always like, ‘I’m gonna pray for you,’ and it’s just like you can actually physically do something yourself.

Okay, so notice the trajectory. Jesus didn’t do what I wanted him to do, I have problems with him, and then he makes a quasi-valid point which is if it’s in your power to do something, don’t pray about it, do it. And I agree with that. Like your friend needs gas money because they lost their job and you don’t say, ‘I’m going to pray for you,’ give the gas money. Absolutely.

But this is how the devil works. The devil twists scripture. When Satan tempts Jesus, he quotes scripture—cast yourself off the temple mount because it is written. The devil quotes scripture. So the devil does this, he takes what sounds true, distorts it. This is how all cults, all false religions start.

And then watch the trajectory here, in Kanye’s own words, “More than just pray, and we are so in this mentality that’s all that needs to happen.” But we ain’t praying our way out of prison, we ain’t praying our way out of the abortion clinics, you got any threats we’ve been dealt with, and I didn’t pray my way through them threats either, I had to get up and do it myself. I had so much to do, I had time to pray. That’s where my issue is, and look at where I’m at today. Show up, show up, you know what I’m saying?

I understand that that’s controversial. No, we’re going to speak. “I dropped the con,” did you hear that? “I dropped the con,” he’s talking about his Christian faith. So I’ll be surprised, and I’m still alive every day. How did you not so-called disappear? Watch this, like because that’s a hell of a fight because you know, because I’m God, and anyone to disagree, I’m the God of me, and you can’t tell me who I am. I can’t tell y’all, I could tell y’all it’s y’all job to listen. “I’m the God of me, I don’t know if I’m in heaven already and she—I got #1, not for you, know I might be on like 1/4 dimension version of the lifestyle, you know?”

I guess I must have died, and it’s accident as much we heaven. It’s like, why should you fear, you know? It’s another thing I don’t like, Christianity, the fear of God. If God is love, why should you fear him? Because you place one fear, you get another fear, get another fear, what do you have in that point? You’re easily controllable, you’re easily sellable, you’re easily contracted because you had this fear on you.

Yikes, Kanye. I feel bad about this one because I was really pulling for a genuine conversion in his life. But that is straight-up Satanism. “I am God, I’m the God of me.” No, you’re not. You’re a created thing. You are created, whether you like it or not, submitted to the authority of Almighty God. And you should fear Him —that is, respect and honor Him. Yes, in some cases, be afraid of the Father. Absolutely. It is not wrong to have a healthy dose of reverent fear for God; it’s actually commanded in the scripture that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

I hear a lot of Christians talk about this; “Oh, we don’t want to fear God.” No, we—he’s like, you know what? Just respect Him. No, you want to fear Him. You want to fear Him. He is holy, He is righteous. When John the Revelator sees Jesus in His glorified state in Revelation 1, he falls on his face as though dead, and the response leads to revelation, welcoming Jesus, and He puts His hand on his shoulder and says, “I’ve got something to say.”

You’re losing the fear of God, and this is the culture that we’re living with. This is what we are living with right now in our culture: the lack of a fear of God. I fear that it’s only going to get worse by the day as more and more people apostasize.

You’ve got to get yourself into a good, gospel-preaching church where the Bible is taught without fear of man. Your pastor should fear God, not fear man. Your leaders should fear what God’s word says, not what you think or feel. And you may not like it, you might resist it, but ultimately, like all good, true, healthy things, it’s good for you.
