  • 00:02:22.868 --> 00:02:30.542
  • Dr. Youssef:Well, I want to start
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:33.312
  • by asking you to try to useyour imagination.
  • 00:02:33.345 --> 00:02:36.215
  • Imagine with methe following scenario:
  • 00:02:36.248 --> 00:02:40.752
  • due to my kindnessand my generosity,
  • 00:02:40.786 --> 00:02:44.523
  • I decided to invitesomeone into my home,
  • 00:02:44.556 --> 00:02:48.260
  • to my house.
  • 00:02:48.293 --> 00:02:50.028
  • Needs food, I give him food.
  • 00:02:50.062 --> 00:02:52.364
  • Needs a shelter,I give him shelter.
  • 00:02:52.397 --> 00:02:54.566
  • Needs a job,I help him find a job.
  • 00:02:54.600 --> 00:02:57.736
  • Needs a new identity,I give him my identity.
  • 00:02:57.769 --> 00:03:01.773
  • He was given all the privilegesthat my family members have.
  • 00:03:01.807 --> 00:03:07.479
  • He arrives to see ushave open arms
  • 00:03:07.512 --> 00:03:13.151
  • and welcoming, accepting,and loving him.
  • 00:03:13.185 --> 00:03:17.956
  • After all of that,one day he just decides
  • 00:03:17.990 --> 00:03:22.327
  • that he just doesn't likethe furniture in the house
  • 00:03:22.361 --> 00:03:25.530
  • and so he proceededto change the furniture.
  • 00:03:25.564 --> 00:03:28.934
  • But that was not all.
  • 00:03:28.967 --> 00:03:30.969
  • Then he went about,regardless of reason or history,
  • 00:03:31.003 --> 00:03:36.842
  • without any regardfor any of this,
  • 00:03:36.875 --> 00:03:39.578
  • he begins to change thingsin our house,
  • 00:03:39.611 --> 00:03:42.481
  • over our very vigorous protest.
  • 00:03:42.514 --> 00:03:45.484
  • He decidesthat the family prayer time
  • 00:03:45.517 --> 00:03:48.887
  • is an offensive to him,
  • 00:03:48.920 --> 00:03:50.656
  • so he will say,"You need to stop praying,"
  • 00:03:50.689 --> 00:03:53.458
  • and he will stop usfrom praying publicly.
  • 00:03:53.492 --> 00:03:56.128
  • And then he insists
  • 00:03:56.161 --> 00:03:58.030
  • that the entire familycan pray privately,
  • 00:03:58.063 --> 00:04:01.433
  • but they cannot pray
  • 00:04:01.466 --> 00:04:02.834
  • in a hallwayor in the living room.
  • 00:04:02.868 --> 00:04:05.904
  • Then he decides that we havetoo many Bibles,
  • 00:04:05.937 --> 00:04:09.541
  • and so he proceedsto take away the Bibles
  • 00:04:09.574 --> 00:04:11.843
  • and locks 'em up somewhere.
  • 00:04:11.877 --> 00:04:14.146
  • And then even, he goes further.
  • 00:04:14.179 --> 00:04:17.215
  • He would say to me, "If youever openly speak of your faith,
  • 00:04:17.249 --> 00:04:23.388
  • if you ever publicly express
  • 00:04:23.422 --> 00:04:25.490
  • your religious worldviewand your conviction,
  • 00:04:25.524 --> 00:04:29.461
  • I will take you to court,
  • 00:04:29.494 --> 00:04:31.229
  • and I'll have you be silencedby force."
  • 00:04:31.263 --> 00:04:34.833
  • Why?
  • 00:04:34.866 --> 00:04:36.335
  • "Because I find your religionto be an offensive to me.
  • 00:04:36.368 --> 00:04:39.404
  • I found your faithto be offensive to me.
  • 00:04:39.438 --> 00:04:42.541
  • I find your belief systemto be an offensive to me."
  • 00:04:42.574 --> 00:04:46.044
  • His attitude is this: I knowyou brought me into your family.
  • 00:04:46.078 --> 00:04:50.649
  • I know you provided
  • 00:04:50.682 --> 00:04:51.983
  • unprecedented opportunitiesfor me.
  • 00:04:52.017 --> 00:04:55.020
  • I know that you've given me
  • 00:04:55.053 --> 00:04:56.355
  • all kinds of privilegesto be part of your family.
  • 00:04:56.388 --> 00:04:59.991
  • I know you have given meall sorts of legal rights,
  • 00:05:00.025 --> 00:05:03.328
  • but now I'm gonna use
  • 00:05:03.362 --> 00:05:04.663
  • those very legal rightsthat you've given me
  • 00:05:04.696 --> 00:05:08.567
  • to obliterateyour moral lifestyle."
  • 00:05:08.600 --> 00:05:11.236
  • And then he continues:
  • 00:05:11.269 --> 00:05:13.372
  • "I might beonly one of many here,
  • 00:05:13.405 --> 00:05:15.607
  • but because I disagree
  • 00:05:15.640 --> 00:05:17.075
  • with your fundamentalbelief system,
  • 00:05:17.109 --> 00:05:19.911
  • I demand to silence you.
  • 00:05:19.945 --> 00:05:22.848
  • I demand to reinterpretyour faith back to you.
  • 00:05:22.881 --> 00:05:27.152
  • I demand to pillageyour foundational structure.
  • 00:05:27.185 --> 00:05:30.455
  • I demand that youeither be silenced
  • 00:05:30.489 --> 00:05:33.759
  • or accept my worldview."
  • 00:05:33.792 --> 00:05:37.462
  • Now, if you're a normal person,by now, saying,
  • 00:05:37.496 --> 00:05:40.832
  • "Michael, this is a nightmare.
  • 00:05:40.866 --> 00:05:45.470
  • This is a travesty.
  • 00:05:45.504 --> 00:05:48.673
  • This is a tragic situationof all proportion.
  • 00:05:48.707 --> 00:05:53.278
  • This is devastating."
  • 00:05:53.311 --> 00:05:55.981
  • And you know what?
  • 00:05:56.014 --> 00:05:57.315
  • You would be absolutely rightif you thought that.
  • 00:05:57.349 --> 00:06:01.486
  • But I wanna submit to youthis morning
  • 00:06:01.520 --> 00:06:04.156
  • that this is preciselywhat has and is happening
  • 00:06:04.189 --> 00:06:08.326
  • in America today.
  • 00:06:08.360 --> 00:06:10.996

  • Dr. Youssef:In the last few decades,
  • 00:06:15.901 --> 00:06:17.969
  • and of late,we have been experiencing
  • 00:06:18.003 --> 00:06:21.540
  • a nightmare scenariothat is being accelerated,
  • 00:06:21.573 --> 00:06:25.710
  • so much so that the very peoplewho came to America
  • 00:06:25.744 --> 00:06:30.148
  • and found refuge in America
  • 00:06:30.182 --> 00:06:32.617

  • America's biblical foundationand to spread anti-Semitism.
  • 00:06:35.287 --> 00:06:39.925

  • so many years ago,

  • while I am a legal immigrantto this great country,

  • against those,my fellow immigrants,
  • 00:07:00.045 --> 00:07:02.113

  • and susceptibleto the virus of temptation.
  • 00:17:46.657 --> 00:17:49.794

  • listless, and indifferent.

  • is that you'll becomespiritually depressed

  • "Are you irritated?"
  • 00:18:03.107 --> 00:18:05.209
  • Are you irritated nowthat I'm preaching the truth?
  • 00:18:05.243 --> 00:18:08.346
  • Are you?
  • 00:18:08.379 --> 00:18:09.814
  • You see, when I see peoplegetting irritated
  • 00:18:09.847 --> 00:18:11.482

  • This is the very signof spiritual starvation
  • 00:18:19.457 --> 00:18:23.261
  • for the Word of God.
  • 00:18:23.294 --> 00:18:25.997
  • The prophet said,"The day is coming

  • 00:18:28.199 --> 00:18:29.500
  • but not for food,but for the Word of God."
  • 00:18:29.534 --> 00:18:32.069
  • The reason today we haveso many people
  • 00:18:32.103 --> 00:18:34.172

  • toward the biblical foundationof this nation,
  • 00:18:40.077 --> 00:18:42.980
  • is because theyhave stopped feeding

  • upon the Word of God.
  • 00:18:45.683 --> 00:18:47.318
  • You see, the first thingenemies of Christ did
  • 00:18:47.351 --> 00:18:50.922
  • was to remove the Biblesfrom public life.
  • 00:18:50.955 --> 00:18:54.525

  • Dr. Youssef:No, absolutely not.
  • 00:23:36.040 --> 00:23:37.708
