Bring It On-Line: - June 1, 2017


Well it's time to bring it on with your email questions.

And Pat, this first one comes from Judy who says, Dear Pat,

I wondered what your position was regarding abortion.

And do you think that if a high school

student at a Christian school became pregnant,

should she be banned from graduating with her class?

Oh, absolutely not.

I tell you what, a girl's gotten pregnant.

OK, so she and a boy had sex together.

OK, end of story.

So the results of sex often lead to pregnancy.

So what do you want her to do, have an abortion?

Is that going to satisfy the group of the--

TERRY MEEUWSEN: Christian school.

--well I say that--

I'm trying to think of a name of the blue noses or whatever.

TERRY MEEUWSEN: The committee, yeah.

You know, there was a book called "The Scarlet Letter"

that was so famous about a woman who had a child out of wedlock.

And she had to wear a letter A for adultery

to mark her for the rest of her life,

or at least for a period of time.

I think that girl needs all the support she can get.

I think people will get around her and love her.

And by all means let her--

so you think it's wrong that she's got a so-called baby

bump when she's walking across the platform?

Well suck it up and stand with her

and stop being so hard nosed.

I mean, I really think she's going to pay plenty of price

for what she's done.

But I think to have to Christians stand around

her and say, we're going to help you raise the child,

we're going to help you.

You're going to carry the baby.

You don't want to have an abortion.

You're doing the right thing.

God bless you.

Not, I'm going to forbid you to graduate with your class

and can't walk.

No way, all right.

OK, this is Gina who says hi Pat, I

have been hearing a lot lately about giants

or Nephilim returning in the last days as God's judgment

upon the earth.

Is this scripturally verifiable or true?

No, it's not.

I think it's fantasy, all that nonsense.

You read the Bible, the angels had sex--

the sons of God had sex with women and they had babies

and there were giants in the land.

And there were some.

Apparently there are records of some really big people,

I mean great big people in certain

of these early cultures.

But as far as Nephilim and all that business,

I think that's just fanciful nonsense.

And I think they're trying to cook up something

that doesn't exist, all right?

This is Doug who says in the early stages of "The 700 Club"

TV show, there was an opening theme song.

I'm guessing this was in the 1970s or early '80s.

Does anyone know the name of this song

and who was the composer?

Well we hear a song, a leader named

Danny Thomas I think it was.

Let's see, I've got that here--

Danny Taylor.

And he was called put on a smile.

And he just made a little ditty up that was kind of cute.

And Moose Smith and the boys played it.


That was Danny Taylor, all right.

This is Virginia who says, I'm confused about where

I should send my tithe.

I'm able to attend a local church,

but I go online every Sunday and attend church.

I'm a CBN partner.

I send my tithe to an unwed mothers' ministry.

Is this the right place to send my tithe

or should it be going to a church?

I've said many times, I think the universal church

of Jesus Christ encompasses education,

encompasses humanitarian outreach.

It encompasses local congregations.

It encompasses missionary organizations.

You can go down the list.

But it's kind of like all inside the church.

And so we bring our tithes to the Lord.

There is no central storehouse any longer.

There is no temple in Jerusalem.

And that was the storehouse.

There was one place of worship in the old days of Israel,

but not anymore.

So let the Lord lead you in that regard.

But you've found an unwed children's missionary activity

and you want to give it to them.

OK, fine.

What else?

Herb wants to know, why doesn't Luke

mention the exception clause for divorce and remarriage

like Matthew does?

Now Luke was talking to me a few days ago

and he gave me all the word about how come he left it out.


I don't have a clue.

Please, how do I know?

Well I thought you were closer than that.

Well he's an author and authors

decide what they're going to put in their books.

I'm an author.

I leave things out and I put things in.

He's the same way.


This is Sarah who says, I've been in my marriage

for 10 years and it has always been a struggle

to stay together.

We fight constantly.

We both were Christians when we married, but he stepped away

from the Lord.

We've always been opposites, but I fell in love with him

for the love of the Lord.

How can I help him love me the way the Lord wants him to?

How can I help him lead the house in the Lord?

He's very hurtful emotionally and mentally.

I don't know how much longer our marriage will last.

I don't know how to help him get back to the Lord

as well as helping each other in our marriage.

Please help.

Well, what does the Bible say about your conduct that a godly

woman can bring her ungodly or [INAUDIBLE] husband to faith?

I think what you do is demonstrate before him

Christian virtue.

And hopefully it'll bring his heart

softened so he comes back to the faith

that you said he once had.

Beyond that I don't have any-- so how do you do it?

Well, the Lord has to do it.

Sometimes these deals become intolerable

and you have to have separation.

And I just don't think that God intends us to live

in torment for all these years.

Marriage is a time of joy between two people who

love each other.

It is not a prison where you serve out your sentence.
