  1. Awesome. So exactly right. And therein is the problem for so many, especially the rioters, they have removed God from consideration. May Jesus come quickly. I'm tired of this evil mess of a world.

  2. Our worth and value is only found in Jesus, that is from without and not from within. All lives matter because Jesus came to die and redeem the unrighteous. Not because of anything redeemable that we have done or will do. While we were His enemies, He reconciled us to Himself.

  3. Thank you Pastor! I’m Polynesian it’s a big deal to be a Polynesian, even in my culture. I don’t make a big deal out of it, because I know that my ethnicity does not get me to heaven. I’m so grateful for The gift of Salvation.

  4. Amen Amen Amen!!! Ive been saying this to so many people for days. While racism, prejudice, and division exisit on one level or another…when we take the time to objectively drill down, at its core, this entire mess is a matter of the heart! And a man-centered worldview vs a God-centered one. Those 3 things above are sin, like any other sin. Until we accept Christ and His Holy Spirit working to change us, NONE of this reality or the associated narrative will change.

  5. Deep sorrow in my heart as I needed to let go of a few people during these months of insanity with the pandemic & now riot, some people don’t want to ever see the truth & I pray for only people of God be in my life, I don’t want anymore fighting, in Jesus name I pray!

  6. Thank you for the wise Godly counsel and for actually saying the words, "black lives matter." What I've heard from you over the years is a consistent tone of genuine Christ-like love and compassion for individual hearts and souls as you teach sound Bible doctrine. I thank God for you and the Truth For Life ministry.

  7. Yet another reason why I rarely look at the typical media. I don’t own a TV. Almost ALL of its content is sheer garbage, propaganda, misinformation, and bad news. Only the Bible presents an accurate picture of reality. It presents the Good News and how to receive it. Throw away your TV!

  8. If everyone in power is telling you to fight white supremacy, then maybe white supremacists aren't in power. Let me ask you this, we have multitrillion dollar companies, left and right, celebrities, politicians, media, and academia telling you to fight white privilege. Basically the elite are telling you to fight…against themselves? Doesnt make much sense. By the way look at Antifas twitter and Church of Satans (this is an official verified twitter) account. These are your allies in this fight. To anyone who thinks your fighting the system, you're not. Your not on the cusp of revolution. This is system approved. Please give below a read to understand.

    Dont fall for this trick and pray that God gives you eyes to see the truth.

  9. Usually a wise response but that was a complete misreading of what is really going on this is not about race. This is evil people using race as a pretext for destroying our nation. Antifa is being played by large international forces to break this republic.

    What was the scriptural response in world war II?? Be nice love people let God handle it???

    When does the Christian stand unitrd in a principled and resolved stand against evil??

    Passive isn't always just. It's just safer

  10. Why is it that us Christians and REAL pastors like Begg are not calling for us to revolt against tyranny that is preventing us from being gathered in church? This man Floyd was on Meth and Fentanyl. Why is that not reported? Begg, blacks don’t want to hear that all lives matter. They want you to acknowledge your “white privilege,” bow to the mob, and beg for forgiveness for your whiteness. The ones protesting are racists, they hate whites and really hate white males. Why can’t you say this?

  11. Black lives matter but the BLM movement is communist and anti-Christian. From the about page. “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

    We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
    Christian don’t doubt that God cares for justice for all. But don’t fall for a political ploy. We don’t have to be part of that because God’s call to the church is more profound and transformative then anything concocted by the world (the enemy of God). BLM is one of the wiles of the devil.

  12. Amen, Pastor Begg. Thank you for this! The answers are found in the Gospel, nothing else. Many more than I ever thought possible are falling to the delusion behind what’s happening right now. We need to look at how Jesus responded to everything- He is our only example of how to respond for the Christian. If we’re walking by the Spirit, we won’t gratify the desires of the flesh, and some of the desires of the flesh are what are being gratified right now- divisions, dissensions, strife…
