Pastor Jim Garlow thinks people need to wake up to a serious culture myth

People just assume that just because things are one way today, they will be that tomorrow. That's a huge cultural myth. You need to prepare for what is coming in the very near future, and Pastor Jim Garlow is hosting a conference in San Diego to help. On radio this morning, Pastor Garlow discussed the the Future Conference, the Black Robed Regiment, and more.

GLENN: Jim Garlow is a good friend of mine and was there with us at Restoring Honor. He is the pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, which is not an easy place to be a pastor. He has been under attack and his church has been under attack for a very, very long time. But he has something going on. June 14th through the 17th. And it's free to attend. If you happen to be listening anywhere in California or you want to travel to California -- San Diego is not a bad place to vacation, especially in June -- you can find information on this at SkylineChurch.org. He has a conference, and I'll let him tell the idea behind it. But it's basically to start to empower you, people of faith, and empower the pulpits to do the same thing. It's called the Future Conference, and Jim is with us now. Hi, Jim.

JIM: Hey, Glenn. Good to be on with you, my friend.

GLENN: Thank you. Tell me about the conference. You have 50 people coming in, and you're covering everything.

JIM: It's 56 speakers, but who's counting? And we're covering all kind of topics: Poverty, racism, the Biblical foundations to economics, how to save Iraqi Christians, how to relate to millennials, human trafficking, the tragic loss of religious liberty in America, terrorism here, terrorism abroad, the role of Israel, radical Islam. Emergency preparedness, defending marriage, radical new evangelism, and even this topic, when biblical obedience requires civil disobedience, or principled resistance. So a lot of different topics, and it's designed to educate, embolden, and activate all of us.

GLENN: Jim, I have to tell you, I'm announcing something next week myself, and I think that the -- I think the Lord speaks through the multitudes. And we are -- we are at the time that none of us thought could happen or would happen, never again is now.

You're feeling that. Is that why you're doing this?

JIM: Absolutely. Absolutely. Morally and economically, we're at a crisis, and that's not just a euphemism. We have this cultural myth that many people follow. The cultural myth goes like this: The way things are, are the way things are always going to be. And that is not the case.

Any study of history knows that nations begin, and nations end. And some are saying we are at the end of the end. And they're not Chicken Little, just screaming the sky is falling. Even in the economic world -- I have a friend who lectures -- speaks at a prestigious east coast university to billionaires who told me last week that among the billionaire friends he has -- he's lectured every year for many years -- and he says, never have I seen them with this level of fear in just the economic arena. And in the moral collapse of our nation.

And so the Future Conference is one guy's way, and we all have our part. My way of saying, I take a stand here, and I want to raise up as many people as I can who really understand the biblical underpinnings. God's word has all the truth. The biblical underpinnings of all of these contemporary gutsy issues. Equip as many people as rapidly as I can in all these issues.

We have an incredible list of speakers. Congressman Bob McEwen. Bishop Harry Jackson from D.C. Star Parker. The Catholic Chaldean bishop, Bishop Mar Sarhad Jammo. Now, he's from Baghdad. He'll give us a report on how to save Iraqi Christians, his own friends.

Kendra Todd. She's going to speak on how to reach millennials with the truth. She happens to be the first female to ever be on Donald Trump's The Apprentice, the youngest ever to win it.

A man named Kasim Hafeez. Now, he is a radical -- was a radical Islamists and got spun around and lost his hatred for Israel and realizes how spectacular Israel is.

Another one is Ambassador Suzan Johnson Cook. She's an Obama appointee. Was. She stepped out of the role now. But the religious liberty ambassador to all nations. And a host of others. There's 56 speakers total. That's just a few of them. Like Steve Riggle, for example. He's one of the pastors of the Houston five that was attacked by the mayor there recently when she went after five pastors and violated the First Amendment. So a host of speakers covering so many superb topics.

GLENN: Okay. You're hearing Jim Garlow. He's the pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego. Jim was one of the first to sign up for the Black Robe Regiment, when we went to Washington, DC, five years ago this summer, and has been a good friend ever since. And his -- somebody has just come up to me over the last three months, Glenn, do you remember those groups of guys that stood behind you on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial? Is that still going, and are those guys still active? Not only is that still going, the number in the Black Robe Regiment is about 70,000 now. The number that I think will walk through a wall of fire, you know, and possible death is anywhere between 17 and 10,000. That's an extraordinary number of people that are willing to lay it all down on the table and go to jail or go to death because they serve God and not man.

Jim is one of those men. So you are -- you're putting this together. Now, is this -- is this for pastors or is this for regular people?

JIM: We're saying it this way. It's for three categories. Pastors. Christian leaders. And serious followers of God. And so it's wide open to anybody who is serious about these things, who wants to learn.

It's interesting. The line of the speakers is so exceptional, so strong -- by the way, they can go to FutureConference2015.com, and they'll see the whole list of speakers, or SkylineChurch.org. Either place. And the list of speakers is so strong, that one of the major universities here in San Diego, Point Loma Nazarene University is giving three hours' graduate credit for people who come to this conference and who will sign up of course through the university to get that.

But it's a goal -- you used some language here a moment ago, Glenn, that the uninitiated will understand. Willing to walk through the wall of fire and possibly death, that's what you just said.

And that's honestly where we are. I spoke to a group of about 350 pastors one time at Samford. Not Stanford. But Samford University down in Alabama. And behind me on the wall was a bust of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And I said to the pastors: Stop telling stories and illustrations about Dietrich Bonhoeffer and be willing to be Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

And we have come to that moment. You have wisely said, what you did a few moments ago, based upon an accurate reading of the cultural landscape. And people like you and me and, thank God, many others are digging in very deeply and laying the benchmark of where we're going to stand on these issues. And so I urge people to come to San Diego for four wonderful days, June 14 through 17. It starts off with Bob McEwen. He'll speak in our Sunday morning services. But it officially kicks off Sunday afternoon at 6:00 p.m. June 14th, ends Wednesday night, June 17th. There's no registration charge. No cost for coming. We do ask people to register though at FutureConference2015.com, or they can call the church office: 619-660-5000.

GLENN: Jim, can I ask you one last question?

JIM: Yes, sir.

GLENN: Compare what you believed or where you were five years ago to where you are today. I've known for five -- when we first stood on those stairs together, I knew where we were headed. Most did not. We all kind of hoped that it wouldn't come down. But I have had a growing feeling since last year. And unstoppable feeling this year. That it now is time and it has begun. Can you tell me the difference five years ago to today?

JIM: I will. And I'm going to take you back just three years ago. You were on the platform of our church. And I threw the question out to you and one other person in that Sunday night seminar format. And I said, where are we right now in America? And the other person said, the Titanic has not hit the iceberg yet. You leaned over to me and said: I want to answer first. I disagree. And you said, the Titanic has hit the iceberg. It's a case of now getting life jackets and lifeboats. I agreed with you that day. And I agree with you today.

You have and I have and others like us and some listening have what I call the disadvantage of the prophet. That's where you can see what other people cannot see. And you sound so alarmist. You sound so melodramatic. Other people are saying, we can play shuffleboard on the surface of the Titanic. It will be fine. You see what is happening, and you're trying to save lives. Here's how I know how much worse it has gotten. I record once a month, and I just finished moments ago recording one-minute commentaries. They're called the Garlow Perspective, and they air on 850 radio outlets once a day. And most of them are recordings of the state of lawsuits against Christians across America. I just finished that recording moments ago.

And every month, I get shocked. I get stunned at how much more severe the lawsuits are against being a follower of Jesus Christ in this nation. The rise of the anti-Christian sentiment and the rise globally of anti-Semitism. I just got back from Israel. It's my seventh trip. My wife's 53rd trip. We just got back a week ago from Israel. And what we're witnessing globally, what we're witnessing here, the world is on fire. Something is happening, and we want to urge as many people to be prepared to stand. I tell my own congregation. I can't tell you exactly what is coming, but I am preparing you for whatever it is that's coming.

GLENN: Jim, thank you for being one of those men. Thank you. Sincerely. It is a --

JIM: To you as well.

GLENN: It's rare to meet somebody and then know them as well as I know you and to know that you're not in this for the money. You're not in this for a book sale. You're not in this -- you really will stand till the end. And to hear you speak this way, you and I have spoken off-air over the years, and we have both said, well, maybe some day. But not quite now. And to hear you do this and put this together at the same time that I'm feeling the same things and I'm doing something myself, I am telling you, the Spirit speaks through the multitudes. And I'm grateful. I'm grateful for your willingness to stand.

JIM: Well, thank you. When Bruce Jenner, or Caitlyn, is lifted up and then a person who says that a child deserves to have a mommy and daddy is condemned and potentially fined and can be sentenced to jail, that is where we have gotten.

But the good news is, we're not budging. And we're not going anywhere. We're standing. And truth always eventually and righteousness always eventually emerges. My Ph.D. is in historical theology and church history, and truth always ultimately wins out.

GLENN: Jim, thank you very much. Appreciate it.

JIM: Blessings on you. And thank you, my friend.

GLENN: You too. Jim Garlow. Skyline Church. It's SkylineChurch.org. It's in San Diego. It's actually La Mesa, California. The Future Conference: What you thought was coming is here now. That's the name of it. SkylineChurch.org. Do you feel that, Pat? Or is that just me?

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
