Thousands of years ago parents sacrificed their children on the altar of Molech.
In today's society parents slaughter their children on the altar of convenience.

As always, well said Pastor Jeff. My husband and I love you very much and also everyone at Apologia. Thank you for leading Christians like me out of apathy and being such an encouragement. We now have a fire and a passion to see abortion ended. Thank you so much. God is using you (and Apologia) in a huge way dear brother!

It’s true, people who are living in the darkness can see the light that shines from you when your saved but they are puzzled as to what they are seeing. The croc part of their brain attracts them but the fear of loss of carnal pleasure tells them to ignore and move on. Listen to Jeff he can teach you how to share info that will excite the croc part of their brain and past it up to the neocortex to truly listen.

I think places like Vegas are places where the lost realize they are lost. Thank you for seeking to bring light into a city that breeds discontentment and pain.

My sister lives just outside of Las Vegas and when I visit, I often think why someone would want to live so close to all the temptations of sin? Without a doubt, as Jeff said in the video, when I see all the lights from below get brighter and brighter as my plane descends onto the runaway, it is enticing and exciting yet as soon as I leave the plane, walk through the airport and grab a rental car, I become frightened and the darkness envelopes me while driving to my sister’s house. I see bedraggled people, drunk people, homeless people, loud people, busy roadways, people walking around with strange attire, some passing out porn pictures on the streets, billboards advertising low room rates, and Buffett bonanzas; lawyers on signs, taxis and ubers everywhere—my thoughts say “when in Rome, do as the Romans” —and then I think, that’s exactly what Satan wants my behavior to be like when I visit Las Vegas. Just suit up, take in the pleasures of a weekend and enjoy your time with your sister and family. Don’t make anyone uncomfortable and just go with the flow. Just go out and party with the family. See all the hotels and mix in with wha the people are doing, because I’ll have a better time then being such a goody goody. I am soooo glad and thankful I have the Lord of protection around me as I walk around that filthy place.

Hi apologia I’ve seen the conversations you have had with others about who Jesus is. Such as Mormans can you please try to include others suchs a those who practice Sikhism.

you can be a city on the hill only if God ordains for you to be a city on the hill, no need to preach about it or tell people to stop loving the darkness if God ordained them to love darkness. The same argument could be said about abortion. It's murder BUT, if God ordained it for His glory, who are we to tell people to stop doing it, why is it evil if God whats it for his glory? You guys would be so much more effective if you dropped that crazy doctrine of men (Calvin)

For me, I returned home from combat and the desert conflict was deeply influential. I questioned my belief in god and I emotionally struggled separating from religion. Then suddenly, immediately, I came to a realization, your realization. I recognized a veneer and my struggles were over.

The way you view Las Vegas, I view Christianity. I realize the importance of something deeper, an authentic well lived life.

Christians are making a HUGE mistake battling science. They just are.

Being in the heathen darkness of Christmass is not being a good light to this world.

and that's God's word says makes it plainly clear every knee will bow every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord"" the sad thing is though for many and probably even most it'll just be a simple acknowledgment when they're already suffering and burning in Hell forever eternally""" Philippians 2:10 and 11 also in Romans 14:11

How do you get people to understand they cannot just randomly sleep around without guilt?
Abortions are wrong
But so is bringing in thousands of unwanted human beings into this crowded fallen world.
Before preaching ending abortion, about preaching the wrath of God on all who are commuting adultery and fornication

Hello. I am an atheist. I define atheism as suspending acknowledgement of the existence of gods until sufficient evidence can be presented. My position is that I have no good reason to acknowledge the existence of gods.

And here is the evidence as to why I currently take such a position.

1. I personally have never observed a god.
2. I have never encountered a person whom has claimed to have observed a god.
3. I know of no accounts of persons claiming to have observed a god that were willing to demonstrate or verify their observation for authenticity, accuracy, or validity.
4. I have never been presented a valid logical argument which also employed rationally sound premises that lead deductively to a conclusion that a god(s) exist.
5. Of the 46 logical syllogisms I have encountered arguing for the existence of a god(s), I have found all to contain multiple fallacious or unsubstantiated premises.
6. I have never observed a phenomenon in which the existence of a god was a necessary antecedent for the known or probable explanation for the causation of that phenomenon.
7. Dozens of proposed (and generally accepted) explanations for observable phenomena that were previously based on the agency of a god(s), have subsequently been replaced with rational, natural explanations, each substantiated with evidence that excluded the agency of a god(s). I have never encountered vice versa.
8. I have never experienced the presence of gods through intercession of angels, revelation, fulfillment of prophecy, the miraculous act of divinity, or any observation of a supernatural event.
9. Every phenomena that I have ever observed has emerged from necessary and sufficient antecedents over time without exception. In other words, I have never observed a phenomenon (entity, process, object, event, process, substance or being) that was created instantly by the solitary volition of a deity.
10. All claims of a supernatural or divine nature that I have encountered have either been refuted to my satisfaction, or do not present as falsifiable.

ALL of these facts lead me to the only rational conclusion that concurs with the realities I have been presented – and that is the fact that there is no good reason for me to acknowledge the existence of gods.

I have heard often that atheism is the denial of the Abrahamic god. But denial is the active rejection of a substantiated fact once credible evidence has been presented. Atheism is simply withholding such acknowledgement until sufficient credible evidence is introduced. It is natural, rational and prudent to be skeptical of unsubstatiated claims, especially extraordinary ones.

I welcome any cordial response. Peace.

When you see the world as light and darkness, you inevitable view others as being wicked, evil, or mislead. To live in the dark is a highly negative concept. This is fundamentally unhealthy thinking for individuals and society. If you see the world this way, you are experiencing the wold through an improper lens–IMO.

I can relate. I left Toledo in the early 80s and drove to Vegas. I was not saved. I went to play music. I stopped in salt lake because my Mormon brother lives there. I crested the mountain in the dark night a saw Vegas as a giant light bulb in the middle of the dessert. Jesus called me a year after I got there and my family disowned me because of that. I moved back to Toledo 5 years later and regret leaving my brothers and sisters in the body in Vegas. I was a Calvary chapel attender but realized the error of pretrib and the sinners prayer for salvation. The Lord has open my heart and mind to the truth of election which makes it easier to accept the lostness of my Mormon family but I still cry in pain for their lost eternal souls. Thanks for the memory.

Jeff did you run into the Hebrew Israelites? It would be interesting to see biblical christians witness to them.

Salt lake is worst they are serving false gods

I don't see "idolatry, rebellion, and opposition". I DO see "hedonism, selfishness, waste, over indulgence"….mixed in with laughter and joy at times. Probably some fantastic places to eat as well. I've never been one to care to travel to Las Vegas and do what the tourists do or see. It's all so empty and wasteful. But it does draw in a HUGE number of people. Having said that,…I bet it would be cool to arrive at Las Vegas on a dark night.

Well said Jeff. God Bless
