Dr. Brown share some of his Long Island story of sin and redemption; Bob Simon’s “60 Minutes” Hit Piece on Israel; and more comments on recent news.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: It is true that God will ultimately defend Jerusalem and is fighting for His people, but it is also true that we need to speak the truth in love, expose error, expose darkness, and let the light shine in Israel and beyond!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Don’t get worn out, discouraged, tired out, back down, or back out. Stand up, do what’s right, stand for family, and stand for morality. God will bless you and back you!

Why Have Jewish People Been So Hated?
VOR Article by Dr. Brown
OUR HANDS ARE STAINED WITH BLOOD
From the first “Christian” persecutions of the Jews in the fourth century to the unspeakable horrors of the holocaust, from Israel-bashing in today’s press to anti-semitism in today’s pulpits, this shocking and painful book tells the tragic story of the “Church” and the Jewish people. It is a story every Christian must hear.
My guest during the second hour of the broadcast today was Peter LaBarbera. He had some very important things to say about gay activist Dan Savage. Here’s his website: http://americansfortruth.org/
Great show. I think it’s so vitally important to continue this battle, continuing to point out that the other side is not representing us at all. Whether it’s gay activism or anti-Israel propaganda. People need to know what the other side really is and what we really stand for. There is always another side, but sadly people aren’t hearing about it. They seemingly only hear one side, unfortunately.
Thank God for raising up powerful lights in this generation.
The issue of slavery in the Bible seems to be common ammunition against Biblical truth. While I have heard you say that slavery was different from what it was later on, and that slavery was part of the economy of the time, this still does not seem to answer the moral issue of why it was just not prohibited.
With regards to the NT, it seems reasonable for the apostles including Paul not to have made this a major issue. If they had, this might have become the “religion of slaves” and put the early church directly in the crosshairs of Rome to even a greater degree. It seems more reasonable to change the hearts of men and let the Holy Spirit convict them with the knowledge that all men are equal in Christ.
With regards to the OT, the matter seems to be less clear. While slavery was different in terms of the degree of savagery, forced labor is forced labor. While one could not beat a slave to the point of permanent injury, one could still beat a slave and as long as he could get back up without permanent damage this appears to have been allowable. While Hebrew slaves were released after 7 years, no such provision was provided for non-Hebrew slaves who could be inherited by the “owners” children. If one person killed another, the one who killed would pay a life for a life, but if one kills a slave, then monetary compensation was all that was required. Further since during much of the history of “forced labor” (i.e. a euphemism for slavery) in Israel, it was a sovereign nation, unlike in the NT times, there was no other prevailing governmental force whose wrath Israel would have incurred.
Cannot we be accused of “white washing” slavery such that we try to redefine it as a kinder formulation? Does even a kinder formulation of slavery do away with the moral problem of men stripping the freedoms away from another? Do not such formulations still ring hollow?
Dr. James White: “A Response to, and Challenge to, Dan Savage”
Dear S. Johnson,
As you mentioned Dr. Brown addressed the slavery subject in the show and in that video I sent you, Dr. James White addresses it at about 8:35.
God bless you.
Thanks Eric….James White in general did a stellar job in discussing Savage’s shortcomings in dealing with Leviticus. Unfortunately his description of slavery as a ” safety net” while it may have been applicable to the Israelites at the time does not seem applicable to those people whom Israel defeated and the recruited for “forced labor”. These people were unlikely to see this as a safety net, but as an involuntary loss of liberty.
Just wanted to say what a great book “The Real Kosher Jesus” is. Your arguments handily deflated that of your long time debating opponent . Frankly, having read about 8 of your other books, in which it was clear you devoted huge amounts of time, I had low expectations for a book put out so quickly. Yet I was pleasantly surprised to once again find great scholarship within the covers of this book as well. It must be a “God thing” that enabled you to put such a fine work out in such a short time.
