Real life presents the Jack Hibbs podcast with intention and boldness to proclaim truth, equip the saints and impact our culture. But 

If evolution's true, then there would be no such thing as homosexuality, because over the last 400 trillion billion zillion quad billion zillion million years evolution, would've washed that out. Homosexuality, lb GT Q actions prove the existence of God because God's word says this is, would be some of the outcome and actions of the last days.

Today, if this podcast lifts you up and encourages you to live a more fulfilled life in Christ, then make sure you leave us one of those five star ratings to us. That's like saying amen, or yes, then that rating will encourage others to listen. Now, open your hearts to what God's word has to say to you here is Jack Hibbs. 

What's behind the mask in a day and age in which you and I live in is the abuse of the spirit. Look at verse 25 says, and they worshiped and served the creature rather than the creator who is blessed forever. Did you get that? It's worship it's spirit. They worshiped and served the creature. Again. I wanna pick on evolutionists just because they're, it's so fun. I don't believe in God. I believe in accidents. I believe. Uh, I, and notice that when they depart from God, they looked the things of creation to give them an answer. And so they say things like this is where we came from. What do you care if it's all an accident? No, it's they care cuz they have to explain it. Why? So how did it happen? This happened. And then there was this a pool that had some ammonia in it and there's a lightning strike in this life was formed in that thing. 

And then eventually there's this little thing swimming around and then it, it had an eye, it got an eye and it rubbed cuz it had a, it got a leg and it started to rub and it got a face and then it needed another eye. So it started to rub on this side and it got an eye and then it needed to fly. So it went from being a lizard to a bird. And see, we laugh at that because that is logical and it is certainly unscientific. But you and I have been lied to in school because they told us in school, you know, we're just looking for the missing link. Did you know what that implies? We've got the whole chain that's right. We're just missing this little link. You know what? They've invented a link in their head and they ain't got no chain. That's right. It's not the missing link. You're missing the whole chain. <laugh> because it doesn't work. God says I'm the creator and you are the creator. God says, I know what I'm doing. And today you judge, I know you don't like this message. Love it. I, I know you don't like it. And you're gonna those of you who like it you'll have no problem parking next week. It'll be fine. <laugh> but here's the truth. It's truth. 

And your spirit is prone to worship. You will worship. And when we reject God, we worship creation rather than the creator. I find that fascinating. It speaks of inordinate affections. And I read to you now, the more men and women seek to honor their bodies, focus on them being the priority. The looks, the, feel, the appearance, the more they are given over to the demands of the body. Boy, isn't that true? The physical drives and appetites of the creature side of us spells death by immersion. That is this. And we all know it's true. Listen, you start tampering with something. And at first, at first you think the thought is I shouldn't do that. I don't think I should do that. And then you do that and you go, oh my gosh. That was so that felt so great. That was so much fun. But I can't do that again. Mm right. And then the opportunity is either brought to you or you go to it and you, and then you go again and then a third time and then a 10th time until here's here's, here's how you know, you're in trouble. What once you've pushed away from and labeled as wrong because it is, you now are making plans on how to do it. 

And when that's not enough, you bring others in on it. Because when we go to cover our tracks, as it were, there's a weird thing about us that we have a sense of it's okay. If others are doing it. So we will entice others to get involved in it. So we can step back and say, how wrong could I be? I'm just like them. They're just like me. Everybody's doing it. Did you know, that's the foundation to that statement. Everybody's doing it. Mm-hmm <affirmative> whatever you wanna do. And you don't feel good about it. You will say everybody's doing it. And you're on a slippery slope. Yeah. And that's in the spirit leads to destructive acts regarding every pagan culture it's studied throughout human history. The evidence is overwhelming, which is this. When the one true monotheistic, God of the Bible is rejected. That culture creates icons images or idols to fill the void that their decision has created. What is interesting is that the man creates images, listen to this of himself, often portrayed as a deified hybrid part human part, animal that is then given over to extreme sexual perversion, sexual abuse and addictions say, man, wow. Yeah. You know what? Look at Greek and Roman Greco, Roman mythology, man, by him when man rejects God and he wants to be God himself, he can only take that for so long because he knows his, he has imperfection. So what does he do? He winds up linking himself with animals. 

I grew up watching cartoons. Hercules. Do you remember Hercules sidekick? Who was the sidekick? Remember that little guy pan, he was a man's body with a goat. I mean a man's torso with a goat body. Did you know that in Greco, Roman mythology, the, the Deese are like that. That's why you see things like Titan and you see things like the Minerva. You see things like those Greco Roman gods and they're human animal mixtures of Demi gods or deities. See, that's ridiculous. Isn't it song? Isn't it. But why do these things traffic throughout all human existence? Because when man forgets God and rejects God, then man seeks to fill the void. And he winds up D find himself. But he knows that he lacks so much cuz he can't fly. So he gives himself wings. He can't swim. So he gets a mermaid type tale. 

He can't fill in the blank, run around, listen. Oh my goodness. I'm not gonna wow. Look at it later. Maybe you shouldn't um, don't know <laugh> but those Greek mythological gods notice that they are half animal, half human, always out in nature and always involved in outdoor sexual exploits. And there's always beca wind flowing intoxication. Isn't interesting that people that engage in these things that forget God, is it interesting? And a friend of mine died this way. By the way, had a friend, dear friend who was a homosexual died of aids. And last words to me were these Jack don't let anyone tell you and what we do as being gay, there's nothing gay about it. I live the most miserable, broken life possible. Yeah. And it's a tragedy. He was lamenting and he died. And all of that is covered up by extreme drug use and alcoholism and pot. And you name it pills. Why? Why? Because they know they're broken. Satan hates them. He wants to destroy them even further. And the gospel in your heart church is the only answer for them. You've got to love them. Yes. Oh that person over there. There is so and so what, 

You know what some people's sins are really obvious. Some not so 

That's right. 

It's all sin. Amen. And don't think for a moment as I'm teaching on Romans that we're letting the adult off or that young couple who's fornicating all over themselves, letting them off, not letting them off sexual imorality. So why you picking on that for? Cause I read 'em wanna go on Corinthians that when you do those sins, you sit against your own body. Not popular, but it could save a culture. 

Yes. 

Yes. What about the ruin of the family we've been told for the last 10 years in California, the family can be whatever you want it to be. Who says that? Who invented that people who have forgotten God, God says, this is a family. Here's my, I invented it. God says, this is a family. I I've defined it. God says, this is how it works. Skeptic in the house. Play with me for a moment. God says, this is a family. This is how it works. This is how life is to be lived. This is how a village is made. This is how a city is made. This is how a nation is made. This is how the world is populated. Silly. God <laugh>, he's so narrow minded. That's all he knows. Then somebody comes along in this state and invents, no fault divorce. That was probably the greatest damage California has ever exported to the world is no fault divorce 

Because listen, really the bedrock to no fault divorce was this. Hey look, you know you and I don't get along anymore. And uh, we have I reconcilable differences and we're gonna go do our own thing. Oh, that's right. I forgot. We have kids who cares. I'm gonna do what pleases me. And they walked out on their kids, the family, it is a satanic plan to destroy the value and the glory of the human being. And to do that, he must destroy the family structure that God has ordained, which is a model of the Trinitarian relationship between the Godhead. By the way, these things I'm reading. I wrote them. I'm just I'm reading them because I don't usually just read things verbatim. It's just because they mean so much to me because I think they're so in line with the scripture and address our culture that I want to read them. Methodically. 

The family today, we are being told on commercials and in, uh, everywhere, a family is what is what you want it to be. But you know, that's not true. Amen. And I'll prove it to you in a moment. There are books right now that are being taught to our public school. Kids in California, where, uh, I have two daddies. My family is, I have two daddies. That's not true. Oh yes, yes. Of course it is true. If you don't believe in God, that's your truth. But there is the truth. Amen. And God says, this is a family. I'm gonna show you why. In a moment, the end of marriage, mayors between a man and a woman is the social institution created by God that provides the societal and foundational backbone to a civilization. According to the Bible, there are three key institutions created by God that are fundamental. 

Those three institutions are according to the Bible family church government. There is no basic foundation, more necessary for human existence than the traditional natural family units without a husband and a wife, creating children, there would be no family life, which means that there would be no church, which means there would be no government. Did you hear what I just said without a family structure defined by God, there would be no family. There would be no church. There would be no government. What do you think government comes from? What do you think makes up a church? You say I'm still not getting you hang on. 

There's no exchanges. It should be noted that any deviation from the model, from that model results in self, a self-destruct mode that has no ability or means to advance the culture or to procreate life. It can only survive in the moment and it has no future. Do you know what I'm talking about? When two people of the same sex get together, it's out of sheer wanton, lust and pleasure. Only for self. Nothing comes of it. No life can come from it. No family can come from it. That's right. And lemme insert this. If you're an evolutionist, you have to be against same sex union. If you're an evolutionist, what? And by the way, where have been the evolutionist on this topic, because listen, if you're an evolutionist, what is one of the statements? It's the survival of the fittest, right? And in evolutionary theory, the survival of the fittest has to procreate. 

That's why you watch they, they study all the animals and there's the big elk, you know, the big bull elk. And what does he have to do every spring? He has to take on the young Elks, beat him up and the, and the strong one, the strong by natural selection, the strong one survives. He impregnates all the other, uh, IIes <laugh> doze elk, elk gets, I don't know the, and, and so he looks over his hair and they're all producing babies. And he's like, yes. And evolution is say right on. That's it. See, it's an action. 

But if evolution's true, then there would be no such thing as homosexuality. That's right. That's right. That's right. Because over the last 400 trillion billion zillion quad billion zillion million years evolution, would've washed that out. That's right. Homosexuality, lb GT Q actions prove the existence of God because God's word says this is, would be some of the outcome and actions of the last days. Amen. Children without fathers or a male influence, seven times more likely to live in poverty, by the way, I'm gonna give you these statistics and they're gonna break your heart, but I've had people in my face. Tell me that doesn't matter. Yeah. Because I want to do what I want to do. Right? Right. And in that you prove my 0.7 times more likely to live in poverty, six times more likely to commit suicide. 50 for side, 50% more likely to commit a crime. These are kids without dads, 52% more likely to become pregnant out of wedlock. 60% of America's rapists grew up without a father. Oh man. 63% of youth suicides are, uh, are hap are happening among fatherless children. 70% of school delinquencies are from fatherless homes. 71% of teen pregnancies are from fatherless homes. 72 at 72% of high school. Dropouts are from fatherless homes. 73% of youth on youth murders. Wow. Are from fatherless homes. 

86% of youth prison of the youth prison population grew up without a male role model. 87% of youth behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. 90% of America's runaways are from fatherless 

Homes. 

God established God made the family unit for a reason. Every kid needs a dad and every kid needs a mom. And listen, listen, I know many over 50% of the Christian community are raising their children as a single parent that breaks my heart. It breaks your heart. But listen, as painful as that is, it shows you the age in which we're living in
