Jeremy Walker (00:10):
Welcome back to another episode of Reform, Reproduce and Reconstruct. I am your host, Jeremy Walker. And on this episode we’re going to be discussing the unavoidable nature of religion and reconstruction. This episode and more can be found on our website, cr101radio.com.
Jeremy Walker (00:40):
Now to get us started, this episode is going to be a little bit less structured than most, to a certain extent. Mostly because there’s something I’m just itching at my brain, just the back of my skull. It’s mostly this concept, people say, I was listening to a podcast recently. How they free themselves from religion, just completely free themselves from religion.
Jeremy Walker (01:13):
Those religious nuts out there, those crazy crackpots that believe in God, those people are a problem, but us rational, free people, we don’t have the strings of religious trappings. And so this is the concept that I want to discuss. I was also in a discussion also with a guy on a thread, Facebook, social media, that kind of thing. And the guy was going over the concept once again, about he was a humanist. I didn’t know at the time, but he’s a professing humanist.
Jeremy Walker (01:49):
And as I was discussing the concept of humanism, the idea was that humanism is free of the trappings of religion, free from the idea of pressing their beliefs onto other people, which of course is what they attribute to Christians, specifically Christian reconstructionist. And in most recent podcasts I was listening to which I hope to put together and discuss a little bit here on Reform, Reproduce, and Reconstruct.
Jeremy Walker (02:23):
But the concept of reform means that there is a standard, a standard that you were coming back to. That’s what the reformation was all about. I mean, you had the church went away from Orthodox Christianity. And the great reformers, they brought it back, which is what was called reforming, reforming or creating again. Another way of saying it is reconstruction. Reproducing is all about the family, and about what we do with that fidelity that we have life and children. Reconstruction is all about rebuilding something that has been broken down.
Jeremy Walker (03:07):
Now, on this episode I want to go through some basics. This might help you at least your understanding, I think has helped me a lot. We’re also working on, or partnering with I guess is a better terminology is if you’re not familiar with the terminology or the name Rushdoony, R.J. Rushdoony, Rousas John Rushdoony. Chalcedon Foundation is what he founded, currently after of course he’s no longer with us, his son Mark Rushdoony heads up the Chalcedon Foundation.
Jeremy Walker (03:40):
You can find out more on the Chalcedon Foundation at chalcedon.edu. But we’ve partnered with them and we’ve created what’s called Rushdoony Radio. That can be found at rushdoonyradio.org. Rushdoony spelled R-U-S-H-D-O-O-N-Y Radio, R-A-D-I-O.org. There you’re going to find many, many, many, many of his sermons. And we keep, of course, building more on to that.
Jeremy Walker (04:12):
Now, some of the most recent stuff we’ve put on there are things I think that the listener is going to find edifying, things like the foundations of social order, which I’ve been listening to myself, which goes through the basic creeds and catechisms and the councils of the early church. Other things like systematic Bible teachings of Daniel, which I found fascinating, Exodus, and many other things on there as well. But check it out when you get time.
Jeremy Walker (04:42):
But anyways, as we were discussing here, the concept we’re discussing is the unavoidable nature of religion and reconstruction, because people like the idea that there can be some form of neutral ground, a place away from what they call the insanity of it all, belief, away from faith. They call themselves science-based. I know most of you, if you’re listening to this have not been informed in the educational field, as I have been in the educational field for over 20 years now.
Jeremy Walker (05:16):
Inside the educational field, one of the things you’ll hear is the concept of science-based. Science-based, that’s the opposite of faith-based and actually that’s what they call Christian Schools, faith-based schools versus science-based schools or facts-based schools, as if they have no belief system, no religion, no worship, no faith. At least that’s what is touted anyways.
Jeremy Walker (05:45):
So, on this episode, let’s go ahead and break down a couple of these terminologies. Because as I said, I was speaking to a humanist which I did not know of at the time, and he got quite upset as soon as I started explaining to him that no, you’re not devoid of religion, you’re not devoid of the concept of worship, you’re certainly not devoid of the concept of belief or definitely not faith, or reconstruction. It’s something that’s common to all of us. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you believe, what you don’t believe. We all have these things in common.
Jeremy Walker (06:21):
Now to go through them, the concept of God, religion, worship, belief, faith and reconstruction are the terms I kind of want to touch on, at least for today. First of all, God, when we all think of God, there’s a couple of things that a god is, which are mixed up with a couple of other things, which is why people like to hide behind the term so I don’t believe in a god.
Jeremy Walker (06:54):
What does that mean? A couple of things is this, is that person says they don’t believe in a god or any gods, it means they don’t believe in creation. They don’t believe that anything was at the beginning, was uncreated, and it purposeful intent created what we now see in our world today. That’s partly what they mean by a god. They don’t believe in a creator.
Jeremy Walker (07:20):
Next part they talk about when they don’t believe in a god is a lawgiver. In other words, here is something that is right, here is something that is wrong. And it’s our morality. So, when you don’t believe in a god, they’re saying they don’t believe in a lawgiver. And the third thing for a god is they don’t believe in an authority. Authority that gets to set the standard. They are the one who are the decision maker, so an authority figure. All three of these, when you combine them all, they form the concept of a god for most people.
Jeremy Walker (08:04):
Now for the Christians, of course, God is the I Am, like in Moses in the book of Exodus when God asked, “Who should I say has sent me,” and the God of the Bible declares himself to be the I Am. Also in another passage He declares Himself to be the Alpha and the Omega, Yahweh, in another passage. And then, of course, Jesus Christ Himself claims to be and is, the God Himself in Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. Those all declare themselves to be the primary existent being in the world before everything else. Now that’s what the Christians believe based on the Bible. At least is what they should believe.
Jeremy Walker (09:03):
Other people, let’s take our humanist friend for a second. He would say that as far as creator is concerned, it’s nothing, happenstance, accident. He believes in the concept of evolution, the idea or the concept that everything came from nothing by accident, happenstance, chaos, nothing planned, nothing predetermined, no purpose, no reason, just completely accidental. To quote Jurassic Park, “Life finds a way.” In other words, don’t know why it’s here, it’s just here. So for them, creation is the process of unguided evolution. And evolution, of course, is just a term for an unknown, for why things just happen.
Jeremy Walker (10:11):
Well, the lawgiver is pretty simple as well. For Christians, the lawgiver is the I Am, Yahweh, the Alpha and the Omega. Jesus Christ Himself is the lawgiver, tells mankind what His rules are for His creation. As you can tell these two kind of flow into each other. And so for the Christians, the rules come from God Himself, meaning, the I Am, the self existent, eternal being made and revealed to us in Jesus Christ, revealed the Father and of course the Holy Spirit, and Himself in Scripture.
Jeremy Walker (10:53):
For the evolutionist humanist, the lawgiver is no one. If there is a law, it’s not one that is imposed upon anyone. If there is a law, meaning, right and wrong, it must come from man. Dogs are not creating law. Cows are not creating justice, holding courts. Only mankind is that. So the lawgiver comes from man, for the evolutionist. And for them this is just, once again, a product of on purpose chaos, just happenstance. Man just so happens to be cognitive, and just so happens to have the idea that there should be a concept of right and wrong.
Jeremy Walker (11:45):
Then of course, for authority for God, well, for us, it’s simple. For Christians, it’s very simple. God himself, the I Am, He is the authority. He has the authority to set the rules to tell mankind what to do, and has a right to hold him accountable for breaking those rules. For of course, the humanist evolutionist, this is not so. For these types of people, there is no concept of authority itself except those that have power.
Jeremy Walker (12:24):
And there have been many communists throughout the era, and one of them said that power or authority comes out of the barrel of a gun. In other words, people who believe in democracy, they would believe that authority and power come from the people. In other words, enough people 51% and that is where your authority lies. Or in some others, it’s just who has the most power, who can kill the most people and force everybody else to get into line. This is where your authority is.
Jeremy Walker (13:02):
So you can’t really get rid of any of these things. There is a concept of creation. There is a concept of lawgiver. And there is a concept of authority for every single person, doesn’t matter who they are. They no one is void of these ideas. They might say, well, I don’t know, like an agnostic would say, “Well, I don’t know where we came from.” Well, that’s fine. But creation still happened. You don’t know where it came from. But it still happened.
Jeremy Walker (13:30):
And of course, lawgiver, the agnostic might not understand or attribute where he came from, or how other things came from. But they will still attribute to where the laws come from, and who has the authority to say certain things. So the idea that people are void of God is ridiculous. But once you break it down to understand what that means, and the Bible over and over and over, God actually calls other people gods as well. These were those who were judges and had authority.
Jeremy Walker (14:05):
And so the concept of God comes from these three basic things, creation, law, and overall authority in general. And so you cannot get away from these things. And that includes humanists, who do not ascribe to any what we consider to be religions, but they actually do have religion. It’s just the religion of humanism, which we might get to that later.
Jeremy Walker (14:32):
Now, that brings us to number two, religion. Now religion as defined is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature and purpose of the universe, especially, when considered as a creation or superhuman agency or agencies. Usually involving devotional or ritual observances, and often contain a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. So religion, breaking it down is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature and the purpose of the universe. That’s kind of the beginning of religion.
Jeremy Walker (15:11):
Well, Christians obviously have a belief or what they think is true concerning the cause, nature and the purpose the universe. Christians would say the cause is God, which of course, is the Great I Am. The nature is of course based on God’s desire to create, and the purpose is for His glory, and for the different reasons why He made everything.
Jeremy Walker (15:39):
Now, for the humanists, the cause, nature and purpose. Well, the cause is just the unintelligent, chaotic, accidental processes of evolution, which they can’t even properly define. It’s just life finds a way. The purpose, there is no purpose at least for them. Religion is that the religion has no purpose.
Jeremy Walker (16:03):
Now, as far as their devotion, so certain ritual observances are concerned. Now Christians have certain ones of those as described by God in the Bible. Currently, the only ritual observances we have would be baptism, communion. Those are the two biggest ones. Then you of course you have church services like the Sabbath and a couple other ones. But we don’t have any real big ones beyond that. And then, of course, you have the moral code, which of course is God’s law, which tells us how to govern and conduct our human affairs. That is our religion, God’s law.
Jeremy Walker (16:43):
For the humanists, of course, they also have their devotional and ritual observances. You would say, well, hold on a minute. They don’t have those because they’re not religious. Well, of course they are. Has anybody ever heard of the voting booth? You ever heard of the idea of you have the right to vote? You have the people who are going to also not only do that, but they’re going to go out and pick it to try to change things, you have people who are going to riot to try to change things. They’re devoted. They’re showing their ritual observances by showing up at the voting booth because they believe that this is going to change things. This is going to mean something.
Jeremy Walker (17:23):
They’re going to talk to their democracy, they’re going to talk to their government. It’s a form of prayer for these people kind of putting their vote. When they put in their vote, this is their petitions to God. They would like to have a more conservative government or more liberal government or more anarchistic government, whatever you want to call it. We have plenty of ritual observances for holidays and things like that, which we honor all kinds of crazy things civil rights leaders and all the rest of stuff in between. We have our ritual observances for basic nationalism or humanism.
Jeremy Walker (18:05):
As far as the moral code is concerned that governs human affairs, we certainly have those. For most people, this is either individualistic or of course, it is covered more in the idea of a civil code. So the government says something is right or wrong, say like, say abortion, because abortion is considered moral or at least legal in America today, therefore, it is moral. It’s a good thing. It’s an okay thing because it’s legal, therefore, it’s good.
Jeremy Walker (18:38):
We find our moral code in our civil government. And so that’s why most humanists are also statist in general. And there are also other people who believe that the government should have nothing to do with any of our personal affairs. And those would be people that are more anarchistic versus statist. And then of course, their moral code is themselves. If they would like to kill their child using the abortion idea, then they should have the right to do it and the government should have no say so in what they do whatsoever.
Jeremy Walker (19:12):
So you have these two different ideas, but the concept that people do not have religion is ridiculous. They all have religion. Every single person on the planet has a different type of religion. We have a set of beliefs concerning the cause and nature and potentially the purpose of the universe, even if the purpose is nothing. And of course, we do have certain devotions to certain things that we do. And specifically, we have ideas about moral codes and how human affairs should be governed.
Jeremy Walker (19:48):
That’s why everybody has to look at the news all the time. Everything is focused on what’s happening in Washington and what laws are being passed, because we have a very distinct obsession with how the human affairs are being governed, especially in America today, but all over the world, we have religion. We just don’t call it religion anymore. And that’s what kind of what we’re talking about in this podcast.
Jeremy Walker (20:16):
Moving on to number three, which is worship. Now I have defined worship as the unwavering reverence for an allegiance to someone or something, that was just something you’re completely dedicated to. But of course, the dictionary defines it a little bit differently. It defines worship as to worship is to show a lot of love, and adoration for something. Religious believers worship gods and people can worship other people and things too. Worship is an extreme form of love. It’s a type of unquestioning devotion. If you worship God, then you love God so much that you don’t question Him. This is one of the definitions that I got.
Jeremy Walker (21:05):
I think it’s pretty close to what the concept of worship is. It is a complete and utter dedication, adoration, focus, and in a lot of ways, acceptance of whatever something says or does. So worship has a broad spectrum. It’s not secluded to Christians and humanists alike would like to say that they don’t have any unwavering references or allegiances to something, but they do. The vast majority of them have two types of allegiances, especially the humanists. Their allegiances are primarily to themselves and secondarily to the state.
Jeremy Walker (21:45):
And you can see that just by turning on the news any day of the week, if something goes wrong, the state should be fixing something. It doesn’t matter how terrible the state may be, how many problems the state shows, it doesn’t matter how messed up it can be or abusive of its power it can be, they still have this unwavering faith and ability or sorry, unwavering adoration for, and allegiance to their state. Statism is another one of those things where everything is my country right or wrong, which, of course, is how some people view things because they worship their state, or they worship themselves.
Jeremy Walker (22:26):
Now, Christians, of course, we do have an unwavering reverence for and allegiance to something. And that’s God Himself. Now, he would, of course, think that’s laughable. And they find all kinds of fault with God. They go into the Bible and say well, look at this and well look at that. But when [inaudible 00:22:43] talk about themselves, you could take one single person who has this type of worship of themselves, and you could just point out all the problems they have and they would make excuses for everything because they have self worship.
Jeremy Walker (22:57):
Or if they worship their state or their government, you could sit down and point out all the problems of their state or their government, and they would wash it all away because of course they have this unwavering allegiance and support for their state or government. And it doesn’t matter where it is, even if it’s just for humanity in general. Which is really funny when I was talking to the humanist that I was talking to, because they’re acting as if they didn’t have this concept of worship. But they have an unwavering belief in the goodness of humanity.
Jeremy Walker (23:31):
When mankind throughout history has proven, he has no right to such adoration or reverence. Mankind has shown what he can do. And to quote Orwell, “If you want a vision of the future, picture a boot stomping on the face of humanity forever.” And that was the vision of the future that Orwell saw. That’s humanity in his summation, and I have to agree with that from a Christian perspective, humanity is self destructive to the nth degree.
Jeremy Walker (24:11):
So much so that we know so in our movies and our television, that with our technological advancements, we create weapons of war such as atom bombs and nerve gas and things like this. What we create with it in our movies and our television, we create dystopian futures where mankind goes amok and destroys the universe. They have to leave and go find another planet because they’ve used up all the resources or nuclear destroyed everything.
Jeremy Walker (24:39):
But basically, everybody has a pessimistic view of mankind. And they’re right. Mankind deserves a pessimistic view. They just don’t know the remedy for man’s problem, which is why Orwell said, “If you want a picture of the future, it’s a boot stomping on the face of mankind forever.” Without God, that is what you get. When you worship man, that is all that there is. There is no goodness that can be found there.
Jeremy Walker (25:13):
Now, in God, that is different. In the I Am, that is different. There is a reason to worship because while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. There’s a reason to have such adoration, reverence and allegiance for something and someone that would do such a thing for people who are not worth it.
Jeremy Walker (25:44):
But moving on from worship, three more things, belief, faith, and reconstruction. Now for belief, I wrote this, belief is the acceptance that something is true or correct. This is a broad spectrum thing about belief. Definition from dictionary is more along the lines of belief is a noun, which is generally used for acceptance or confidence in truth, and faith or trust.
Jeremy Walker (26:13):
Now, these things are not terrible, because belief in general just means that you actually think that something is true and correct. And so that can be belief in the Bible. That can be belief in evolution. It can be belief in the law of God as being true and correct, meaning that God has good judgments. It can be belief in mankind, that mankind through his goodness, can create a good utopia. It could mean a lot of things. A belief is a very broad spectrum. But every single person believes very hard.
Jeremy Walker (26:55):
A great movie that I still love and series that I love was Firefly, very short lived, sadly. And in it, there’s many great qualities to it. But in one of the parts was actually the movie Serenity that it spun off from. One of the characters is talking about one of the major bad guys in the movie, and said that he had a belief that killing the other main characters was the right thing to do, a belief. And that’s kind of the trigger, you completely believe something, and you completely accept that it is correct thing.
Jeremy Walker (27:37):
And that can be that God is true in His word, it could be that the word of God is the actual word of God. That could be your belief. It could be that the word of God is true and good and right. It could be that God has the right to determine the affairs of mankind. It can be the fact that humanism is correct. It could be the idea that evolution is true, that mankind is all alone in the universe, that there is no one outside of him to tell him what to do.
Jeremy Walker (28:07):
But we all have the concept of belief. There is no getting away from it. So when somebody tells you that they do not have any connections, and they’re free from Christianity, no, you trade belief from one to the next. As a side note, no one stops being a Christian. If you think that, you don’t know your Bible very well. People that are Christians, true Christians, true children of God, are chosen by God. They can’t stop being them any more than I can stop being the son of my parents, or those that might be adopted, it wasn’t their choice. They didn’t choose the parent, the parent chose them, in the case of adoption, in general.
Jeremy Walker (28:57):
That’s more along the lines of what the real Christian relationship with God is, is one of adoption. The Bible in the New Testament back set up quite a bit. But the idea of belief, you cannot escape from it. It’s on all sides. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you are, you believe that something is true and correct. And it’s not always something you can prove. Like once again, I might be able to prove scientifically that fire is hot. Now I can’t prove why fire is hot, and what caused fire to be hot. It has to be something that I believe.
Jeremy Walker (29:34):
Now, as a Christian, I believe that God created everything in the world, including the laws of physics, like fire and it’s hot and it burns things. Now, evolutionists would say, well, that’s completely accidental. There’s no reason for it to actually do what it does. It’s just completely accidental chaos in motion. No purpose at all.
Jeremy Walker (29:58):
But you can’t say the same thing scientifically about morals like theft. Theft we can’t test if theft is right or wrong. We can test its potential positive, negatives, but that’s also based on someone’s point of view. Someone’s judgment, what they believe is correct and true or not. So belief cannot be escaped.
Jeremy Walker (30:25):
Faith is the next one which is very simple. Faith is complete trust, confidence or allegiance to someone or something. Everybody has faith, everybody. Faith itself, faith in God, faith in family, faith in state. Faith in evolution, faith in scientist, faith in medical doctors, faith in whatever it is. Faith broken down means to have confidence. Confidence means to have faith, to trust something. When you trust somebody means you can’t prove something yourself. You listened to somebody, somebody told you something and you trust them. You have confidence that what you’ve been told is true.
Jeremy Walker (31:12):
And allegiance, allegiance just means that, in general, you will continue to support them despite any misgivings or falters that something or someone has. This can be an individual. They will believe in unconditional love. Always supporting and having an allegiance towards your children, your parents, your family, your organization, your country, your world, maybe just humanity, or just confidence in evolution that it’s all just going to happen the way it’s supposed to happen with no rhyme or reason.
Jeremy Walker (31:58):
But everyone has faith in something. It cannot be escaped. Even people who believe in evolution, let’s look at it from a child perspective. And I’ll get into this later in a different podcast. One thing that people despise is that Christians go into education, they call it indoctrination. I would say the same thing about them. Why? We all try to indoctrinate. What does that mean? To doctrinate means to give doctrine, which means a teaching. It’s all it really means.
Jeremy Walker (32:31):
To indoctrinate means to give something or to place teaching into something else. That means you’re trying to educate. Indoctrination is in other words, just kind of a harsher word for educate. And people typically will use the term indoctrinate to mean that you tried to get somebody to believe something uncritically. Well, that’s exactly what happens in the government school systems for people who believe in the concept of evolution. They want children to believe, as I did, I mean, I was taught in government schools in a science textbook that the entire world began with a big bang.
Jeremy Walker (33:12):
When the entire universe compressed to the size of the period on the page at the end of the sentence, and then for no reason at all, boom. It exploded. And when it exploded, for inexplicable reasons, it began to do stuff like creating sun shines, and worlds and asteroids, and gravity and skin, livers, lungs, crickets, the color blue, all the vast, vast number of things in our entire universe came from nothing smaller than the dot at the end of a sentence on the period of a page before it exploded.
Jeremy Walker (34:17):
Now, that’s what we were taught in our science class in public school. And we were told that without any proof, we were told that it was a fact. That is the concept of indoctrination. We were told that something was true because from their perspective it was. And we weren’t supposed to think of it critically because why would you criticize something that is true. In other words, we were being taught the faith of evolution.
Jeremy Walker (34:58):
Now, this right here is something that people would deny, flat out. We don’t teach faith here. Yes, you do. You’re teaching children in government schools to have complete trust and confidence in the idea of evolution, to have allegiance to it, to have allegiance to the scientific community who all agree, this is true. None of them were there. None of them can prove it. None of them know why, but it’s true. You know what that’s called? Faith. So don’t let anybody ever tell you, they don’t have faith in stuff. They’re just scientifically minded. They’re just facts based, science based. That’s baloney.
Jeremy Walker (36:03):
Moving on to reconstruction. I have looked this up and there’s a couple of different definitions for it. But definition from the dictionary is the act of rebuilding or reordering something that has been broken down or placed in disarray. Now, this is of course, very simple. This is the struggle that goes back and forth between Christianity and everything else or everything else and Christianity. And we all believe one shape, form or fashion or other, that ground is being given.
Jeremy Walker (36:36):
The Christians would say, let’s say take the reformation as a good example. The reformation believed that the Orthodox faith as given by Christ and the original apostles had been diluted and changed, and so the reformation was bringing it back to Orthodoxy or back to the original. They’re reconstructing, rebuilding, reforming the churches. It also applies to everything else, the communities, the families, education schools. And so every single person is in the current process of reconstruction.
Jeremy Walker (37:12):
Now, this would be if we look at our religion or religious or political realm, they’re desperately trying to make abortion illegal. Right now in America, it’s up to the point of birth. And of course, as Christians, we see this as something that is lost. The protection of life is something that has been broken down and destroyed. And so we’re now trying to rebuild this, reorder it to where the children are protected, and that their parents cannot just kill them with the permission of the rest of the community and the civil government.
Jeremy Walker (37:50):
And so we would say in reconstructionist Christian terms, that we have to rebuild this concept of the sanctity of life or the God given protection against murder. Now this goes with everything else in between. And so we are all in the struggle, it does not matter who you are. And we are all always in the process of reconstruction.
Jeremy Walker (38:12):
You cannot help yourself. If you have any point of view about politics, if you have any ideas about what is right and wrong, the you are reconstructionist. The only question is what type are you? It’s not really, are you a reconstructionist? The question is and what flavor of reconstructionism, what category of reconstruction do you fit? Which one are you devoted to? But you don’t get away from it.
Jeremy Walker (38:40):
Now, this entire podcast here on Reform, Reproducing, and Reconstruct has been about this concept, because reforming is all about this right here. Reformation is all these concepts God, religion, worship, belief, faith and reconstruction. Your reproduction has everything to do with this, because your children, what are you going to teach them? What is true? Who is God? What is religion? Who are they supposed to worship or have reverence for, allegiance to? What are they supposed to believe? Who are they supposed to put their faith into? And how are they supposed to reconstruct the world?
Jeremy Walker (39:16):
When they’re born into this world, you are saying the world is messed up in X, Y, or Z. This is how it’s deformed. So now you as children, as you grew up, you’re supposed to reform, reconstruct yourself and society. Now, that right there is everything about children and families and education, it’s everything. And lastly, of course reconstruction, which we just touched on that. You can’t get away from it.
Jeremy Walker (39:54):
If we’ve lost the idea of God, the Creator, the lawgiver, the authority, then we’re going to reconstruct those things based on something. Maybe your idea of God is not from the Bible. Maybe you believe that creation is just from evolution. The lawgiver is either the state or the majority or the anarchistic individual. Or maybe the authority is just individual everybody gets to do what they want, or the state gets to tell me what to do.
Jeremy Walker (40:22):
But everybody is going to redefine and reconstruct the idea of God, religion, worship, what they believe is true, what they should accept, what they should have faith and confidence in, or faith, which is of course, allegiance. All these things are reconstructive and no one can get away from it. The next time somebody tries to tell you that they were free from religion, free from the concept of God, free from belief and free from faith, I hope if you’re listening to this, that this might help you understand the problem that the world is in.
Jeremy Walker (41:04):
They can’t escape these things. They tried to delude themselves that this is not who they are. They tried to delude themselves that they don’t agree with this stuff. They’ll even say, “Well, that’s just a wrong definition.” It’s not a wrong definition. It is what you’re trying to do. Anybody who believes in the concept of right and wrong, believes in God, religion, worship, belief, faith, and reconstruction.
Jeremy Walker (41:30):
And there is nobody that I’ve met, who doesn’t believe in any of these things, unless they’re an animal that is, or don’t have the mental capabilities to comprehend these concepts. But every other person on the entire planet fits into a category that is religious. You cannot get away from religion, and you cannot get away from reconstruction. They are unavoidable in their very nature of what they are, and as we are as people.

Now, this episode and more can be found on our website. I think I’ve mentioned it before at cr101radio.com. If you are interested in this podcast or more, you can search us out there. Other than that, thank you for joining us. We will be having very soon another episode of course. And this episode was going to be going back to and teaching us a little bit more about what I hope we should be talking about more on here, more of reforming, reproducing and reconstruction.
Jeremy Walker (42:32):
We’re going to be discussing in our next episode about false doctrines, pregnancy problems, and of course about the idea of videotaping people, and is it something that we should be doing or not. So until then, thank you for joining us again. Hopefully this has given you something to think about. Jeremy Walker, signing off for Reform, Reproduce and Reconstruct. Thank you.
