On November 28, 2018 the Pepperdine, School of Public Policy hosted its annual Patricia Tagliaferri Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series. We were honored to welcome keynote speaker Dennis Prager, radio talk show host and founder of PragerU.
Prager's newest book, released in April 2018, is the first of his five-volume Bible commentary entitled, The Rational Bible: Exodus - God, Slavery and Freedom. While many people may think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated Prager's explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought.

Dennis cant talk to my mother, she HATES me and has made this loud & clear, in other words obvious; she and sister conspired to have me arrested on felony charges, at my trial their hate was so overt obvious the Judge before he threw the charges out against me rebuked my mother for her overt and obvious to him hatred for me. The Judge caught them lying, pointed this out to them as he dropped all my charges. Even my sister was madd with rage. Few years before, mother had told me Linda and Mark were struggling on Army salary, so I gave then a car. In the courtroom against me the very first thing she opened against me she actually said I had given her a car, she said she did not know why. It was so strange to listen to her & mom spew such madd hatred. I refused to lie, conspire with them against my sisters husband Mark, who is still my friend today 16 years later, in her divorce of him. They assumed and spoke openly in my presence how they were going to do him in in divorce court.

I can get behind this but I have one question. Why don’t you guys celebrate the Nat Turners of the world then ? He was a devout Christian who rebelled against enslavement because he was inspired by biblical writings and principles. If what you say is true about people being good and righteous for their time , why don’t you guys celebrate people like that as well ?

You have said people are in hell today and good people that have died are in heaven right now. That contradicts what the Bible says. My Bible says the dead know not anything the only thing that goes to heaven when a person dies is the breath of life. Why would there be a resurrection when Jesus comes to get his peaple if all the good people that died are already in heaven.

I call my parents, but they don't answer the phone. Did I ever borrow money from them and not pay it back? No! Did I become a crackhead, tweaker, thief, habitual liar? No! But they hate me just the same. I am a man that serves his community, I am constantly putting the needs of others over my own because I know I am stronger than they are, and can live with less of everything. And believe me I do, cause I have absolutely nothing. Nothing in the material sense anyway, I have my work and who I work for. Not the man who signs my checks, but he who created everything including my purpose. My favorite philosopher Bruce Lee said, "Perfection is the absence of fear". Science proved that all negative emotion is directly or indirectly rooted in fear. I can't just come right out and give anyone the equation and how this should be used in finding what and who the father really is. Because the almighty want's everyone to come to him on their own. I'm no saint according to certain expectations, but I do my work for father and despite my situation I have not had the same issues someone in my position has had to face. I can only think that is because of who I work for is looking out for me. I don't think I have ever met anyone who didn't share the idea that Karma exists. No matter what their view of religion was, and all agreed that Karma was also a bitch. I think I can say this much without getting in trouble with my boss. Think about what I wrote previously and what I write now. If Karma is the disciplinarian then what use would the creator have for punishing people?

I hear a lot of wisdom. But ss to no Christians doing "evil in God's name," today, may I raise the following examples: "right to life" people who kill doctors who perform abortions and bomb abortion clinics; people who beat up and sometimes kill homosexuals; people who have attacked Muslims (or people they think are Muslim) in this country as infidels. When belief in God is merged with other beliefs (such as it's ok to kill people who make me angry) evil is indeed done in God's name. Thank you.

Morality doesn't have to originate in God, it can be collectively genetically innate . There's no rational need to invoke metaphysics for a universal morality any more than there is to recognize the organ of the brain is a universal attribute to humans.

Minute 27 reality the question comes down to why choose a lady I wish to sacrum my face my life for to give her the happiness and the love and the compassion of life tenderness understanding patients that if her brother came to me and said if you hurt her I will kill you that mean that I wanted to take care of her because he threatened me or because I loved her and so he uses our love against us to make us feel guilty that because we naturally wish to love and care and have compassion he said well I’m gonna write it in your hearts will know it was already in my heart your words had nothing to do with my heart your words are dead to me because my heart already has a desire your words only condemned me for living my words want to rejoice in those that are living not in your dead words And quit trying to resurrect those words to condemn us for living when you know yourself you don’t even have the right to live because you’re living on borrowed time 24 seven whatever banking you do is on that time clock 24 seven don’t think your words are more powerful if you’re not willing to listen to my words

In 20:36 the left may think Lenin was a great man but Churchil wasn't, sorry to blast your bubble Vladimir Lenin sits in Hell right next to Stalin, Mao Tse-Dong, Ho Chi-Minh, Adolf Hitler, Pol-Pot, Kim Jong-il (& Kim Jong-Un when his time comes), Tito, and a few other Communist Fascists of Politicide, Democide, Genocidal murderous agenda. While Churchil is unimaginably better then all of the above, in his times was definitely righteous and virtuous.

Poor Dennis, His Bible based brain can't accept the evidence free claims made in the Exodus myth. "Myth is a folklore genre consisting of narratives or stories that play a fundamental role in a society, such as foundational tales or origin myths. The main characters in myths are usually gods, demigods or supernatural humans" Wikipedia News flash: Archaeologists have discovered the remains of Pharaoh's army at the bottom of the Red Sea. They have also found hundreds of Hebrew campsites and traces of manna in the Sinai Desert.

A verse in the new testament Luke23:28 The Crucifixion …27A great number of people followed Him, including women who kept mourning and wailing for Him. 28But Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29Look, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore, and breasts that never nursed.’… I believe the wood is brown! Abortion, and many other unGodly acts.

I pray to God every day to give me a speck of wisdom throw Jesus I was reading the scripture and came across a scripture in the old testament. Ecclesiastes 10:2 Wisdom and Folly 1As dead flies bring a stench to the perfumer’s oil, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. 2A wise man’s heart inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left. 3Even as the fool walks along the road, his sense is lacking, and he shows everyone that he is a fool.…
