Marvel and DC's War on God: Doctor Strange, Aleister Crowley, and the Multiverse of Satanism with Pastor Joe Schimmel

Marvel and DC's War on God: Doctor Strange, Aleister Crowley, and the Multiverse of Satanism with Pastor Joe Schimmel

Many are unaware of the true history of one of today’s most popular Marvel characters, Doctor Strange. What is the connection to Satanist Aleister Crowley, Satanism, the ancient heresy of Gnosticism and Doctor Strange? To truly understand the spiritual foundation of Marvel cosmology, one must first understand the influence behind many of the comic book writers. I hope you enjoy my second discussion with Pastor Joe Schimmel from GoodFight Ministries about the deceitfulness of Marvel and DC comics. This episode highlights the second part of their 7-part series on Marvel and DC's War on God. We hone in on Satanism and Aleister Crowley. Please visit the links below to watch the film!

Marvel & DC’s War on God is a 7-Part series developed by Pastor Joe Schimmel and Good Fight Ministries. After studying and researching the movies, the comic books, as well as the writers behind these stories, it became apparent that there was a spiritual component influencing these stories that is anti-God.

Responding to The Bible Says What!?

Responding to The Bible Says What!?

Go listen to the interview with Michael Wiseman at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rorcjBke9DI&t=921s


Every empire and form of government has fallen and crumbled. This is not evidence of a theocracy being an issue, this actually lends itself to the depravity of man. That is the common denominator. Some forms of government actually encourage human depravity like totalitarian dictatorship (characteristic of atheistic countries) but our constitutional republic (form of government) with God as our king informing our laws and ethics (theocracy) limits and mitigates the ability for human depravity to rear its ugly head!


Texts I responded to:

Rebellious Children: Leviticus 20:9 & Deuteronomy 21:18-21

Rape Laws: Deuteronomy 22:22-29

Who is God of this world: 2 Corinthians 4:4

Contradiction of Judas: Matthew 27:5-8 & Acts 1:18-19

Contradiction of Plants and Animals: Genesis 2:4-6 (plants) & Genesis 2:18-20 (animals)

Abortion: Numbers 5:11-31

The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate with Brother Bryce

The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate with Brother Bryce

This Wonky Wednesday, Bryce walks us through the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate. The doctrine is seen throughout church history but wasn't formalized until the Magdeburg confession of 1550. Bryce walks us through the doctrine based off a book we recently read by Matt Trewhella called unironically, "The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates". The book is definitely worth reading. Bryce makes a comment in the discussion about a right of other religions to worship. The first commandment of God lays our clearly that humanity is not to have any other gods besides Yahweh, therefore there is no God-given right to freedom of religion in the sense of freedom to make false idols. If we are to legislate according to God's laws and not man's laws (secular humanism or any other manmade religion) then the law of God prescribes in his word is that you do not have the right to worship false idols. Every government is a theocracy and derives their laws from metaphysical principles. That may manifest in "reason" and "logic" from the secular atheist that is tolerant of every worldview besides every other worldview or from a holy book in various religions. Regardless, this is the clear teaching of the 1st commandment and when God visits a nation in judgement he holds them accountable to the false idols they made and does NOT recognize their "freedom of religion" in the sense many understand it today. Read Isaiah 10:5-11 for a clear example of this.

The Gospel & Seeking After Glorifying Grace

The Gospel & Seeking After Glorifying Grace

Salvation consists of 3 parts. Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification. We have talked about the first two, but now this week we start speaking on God's grace in justifying us. God's grace not only justifies and sanctifies but it also brings us to the end and it wills us to seek after glory, that same glory found in the face of Jesus Christ. This is why this is good news, because God's grace glorifies us! Thanks for listening.

People are often confused by what the wrath of God is and how it is revealed upon humanity. In this podcast I try to make a case that God's judgement is much more near than we would imagine. I hope you see the truth of what I am presenting and if you do not know Christ then repent and turn to him as KING!

The Gospel & Sanctifying Grace

The Gospel & Sanctifying Grace

Last week, Bryce and I walked through how God's grace is the kind of grace that justifies us before him. Not only does it justify us before him, but it also is the kind of grace that carries us through and sanctifies us until the end! If you have been given God's wonderful grace then you are a child of God! God will continue to refine and sanctify you before him that he may present you blameless before the throne of his glorious grace.

Presuppositional Apologetics: The Correct Way to Defend the Christian Faith

This Wednesday I have Bryce as my guest again! We walk through the presuppositional method for defending the Christian faith. We base a lot of this material off of a book by Dr. Greg Bahnsen called Always Ready: Directions for Defending the Faith. You can pick up the book here. We hope this episode equips you to defend the faith and destroy the god's of this age like secularism, evolutionary theory, feminism, and the like! Go to battle Christian warriors! You've been made a new creation and have been given a new mind, do not use the old mans ways of defending the faith with vain philosophy! 


"but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect" - 1 Peter 3:15

The Gospel & Christ as our Ransom

The Gospel & Christ as our Ransom

This week Bryce and I walk through the idea of Christ's sacrifice as a ransom. We are indebted to God and our wages due to us is death (Rom. 6:23) but Christ has paid that ransom and won us back from the wrath of God, NOT FROM SATAN'S CLUTCHES. If you want more information on Jesus satisfying us from God's wrath listen to the very first episode of the podcast. Thanks for listening!


“We need not wonder that so much importance is attached to our Lord’s resurrection. It is the seal and memorial stone of the great work of redemption, which He came to do. It is the crowning proof that He has paid the debt He undertook to pay on our behalf, won the battle He fought to deliver us from hell, and is accepted as our guarantee and our substitute by our Father in heaven. Had He never come forth from the prison of the grave, how could we ever have been sure that our ransom had been fully paid? Had He never risen from His conflict with the last enemy, how could we have felt confident that He has overcome the power of death from the devil? But thanks be unto God, we are not left in doubt. The Lord Jesus really rose again for our justification.” - J.C Ryle

Interview with Chris Anderson: Coaching a Little 500 Team & Christian Excellency

This Wednesday I am joined by an old friend of mine from college, Chris Anderson. In this episode we walk through what he does as a coach for a little 500 team and how he uses it to impact the lives of the people not only on the team, but also in the race. We then turn a fundamental principle in the Christian faith. That principle is best laid out in the Latin phrase "Soli Deo Gloria" translated... to God alone be the Glory. We must remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ on the sermon on the mount,

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

The Gospel & Substitutionary Atonement

The Gospel & Substitutionary Atonement

Continuing on our Gospel foundations series, this week, we walk through how substitutionary atonement is crucial when understanding the gospel. We must believe and trust in Jesus Christ as our substitute on the cross. He bore the punishment that was due us. We remember in God's word as it says in Isaiah 53: 4-5 and 11-12,

"Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed."

"Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors."


Key Texts:

Psalm 18:37-43 Matthew 27:15-23 John 15:12-13 Romans 5:6-9 Colossians 2:13-14


My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce just finished his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.

✪ American Board of Cosmetic Surgery: passed board exams and twice re-certified.
✪ American Board of Emergency Medicine: passed board exams and twice re-certified.

Here are the links that Dr. Yoho asked me to upload

Covid is little to worry about if you have the proper medications and treatment. For the critical Joe Rogan/McCollough interview, see HERE. For my podcasts, click HERE. One of my best interviews is HERE. Here is my essay A BASIC GUIDE TO COVID. Another link, WHY COVID IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND has many references and more detailed explanations.

Peter McCullough, MD, is a famed academic. He reports that 85 percent of the fatalities would be prevented by ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, vitamin D, and other treatments used early and in combination.

Read more about the dangers of the “vaccine” HERE and listen to these two videos. Peter McCullough now believes the entire vax effort should be halted and studied. Here is a summary of Dr. McCullough’s video in the last link. We are killing more people in every age group than we are saving.

Our Fall and the Gospel

Our Fall and the Gospel

The fall of mankind is the great fault in this broken world. It is a schism that runs straight through every person, family, and society on the face of this planet. We must come to grips with this terrible news before the gospel of Jesus Christ will become sweeter than honey to our lips.


1 Corinthians 15:22 : For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.


“I do think that the best preaching of the gospel is when the preacher himself enjoys it, when he himself is heartily in love with it; that is a part of the unction that God gives to go with it. When a cook is preparing a dainty dish, methinks he smiles as he sends it up to his lord's table, and he has some enjoyment of it himself. I love to preach a gospel of which I feel the sweetness in my own soul. So, dear hearer, if you begin to feel the sweetness of hearing the gospel, you shall feel more of it. Those who are tired of preaching are those who do not often hear it. If it is the gospel of Jesus Christ, and you have often heard it, you want to hear it again.” - Charles Spurgeon


Key Texts: Romans 5: 12,18-19


My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.

Analysis of First Wave Feminism

Analysis of First Wave Feminism

Bryce has abandoned me to the pit. I will rouse myself and hold fast to the LORD in this trial, he will help me to fly SOLO this week on the For The King podcast. We have been slowly walking through a biblical worldview when considering gender roles. This week I use Zach Garris' book as a resource to quote a few feminist from he 1st wave in the 1850's. They knew what the bible CLEARLY taught about biblical gender roles and by golly did they hate it. I labor to expose you all to what they said about biblical principles and analyze what has caused them to say such things. Lets not let the feminist understand what the bible clearly teaches about the patriarchy be more robust and accurate than ours... *ahem* egalitarians/complementarians *ahem*.

Masculinity & Femininity in the Church

Masculinity & Femininity in the Church

This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms three weeks ago, to the home, and now to the church. The church is the bulwark against an evil and God-hating world. The church has been tasked with the proclamation of the gospel through public gathering and worship of God and sending families out into our communities to win the nations to Christ. For the organization to run well God has instituted certain members of his church to be leaders and servants of the church known as elders and deacons. This week bryce and I walk through how masculinity and femininity play out in the church. Certain men being the leaders and the rest of the men and women to follow them who ultimately follow Christ. Thanks for tuning in! I hope you are continuing to enjoy the series that is so needed in our culture.

Key Texts: Isaiah 3:12 ; 1 Corinthians 11:5, 14:33-35 ; Philippians 4:2-3 ; 1 Timothy 2:8-15, 3:1-13, 5:10 ; Titus 1:5-9, 2:3-5

Masculinity & Femininity in the Home

Masculinity & Femininity in the Home

This week Bryce and I continue to walk through biblical masculinity and femininity. We move first, after defining our terms two weeks ago, to the home. The home is the foundational unit for all of society. For the church, businesses, civil government, all of society. So, we plant our anchor in the home where men and women have specific roles they play out, without which all of society will collapse. Tune in this week to see what God's word has to tell us about how men and women act in a home.

Defining Biblical Masculinity & Femininity

Defining Biblical Masculinity & Femininity

This week on the Sunday Series, Bryce and I begin a new series on gender roles as defined by the creation order in the bible. Gender is thought to be a social construct that changes with society/culture. Biblically we know that our gender, and the gender roles inherent in each gender, are defined by God alone and not mankind. Gender does not change and Gender roles do not change. God has told us what these things are and how we ought to think about them. The human mind is spectacular but not spectacular enough to undo the things God has already put into us. The weeks following, Bryce and I will continue to walk through biblical gender roles and how Christians ought to think about them based on various passages in the bible. Thanks so much for listening, we hope it glorifies God and edifies you!

This Wonky Wednesday I interview author, attorney, writer, and follower of Christ Zach Garris. Zach holds a Master of Divinity from RTS (Jackson) and a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School. He has written for Chronicles Magazine, the Mises Institute, and Desiring God. He edited a book call "Dabney on Fire", writes at KnowingScripture.com and manages another website TeachDiligently.com. He wrote the book "Masculine Christianity" which is what the interview is over.

The Myth Of Relativism

The Myth Of Relativism

“A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent”
― John Calvin


“There are no facts, only interpretations.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche


So many people think that the buck stops with them when it comes to truth and reality. An often refrain in our society is, "This is my truth", which tells us a lot of what our postmodern society thinks about truth. Something may very well be true to you and you may very well believe it but that does not mean that is is true. Truth is something external to us. The scriptures paint a clear picture that truth is objective and external to human experience or interpretation. An author always has an intent in something that they do because the intent is what drives the action itself. There is a true reality to all things and we know that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Join Bryce and I this week as we display what God has told us about what truth is and interact with our cultures claim of truth being relative.

Society's Bane: Homosexuality

Society's Bane: Homosexuality

This week, my guest (Bryce) and I dive into the second part of a two part series concerning effeminacy in men. The first part was geared more towards soft, weak, effeminate men in our society and that behavior being condemned in scripture. This week we dive into effeminacy in its fruition, namely homosexuality. This sin has been welcomed and invited in our evangelical Christian circles in America. The church has largely capitulated on this issue and terms such as "gay Christian" are now commonplace even in "reformed" circles. The scriptures are extremely clear on the topic although our culture would war against it. Christians cannot serve two masters. Thanks for listening!

Freedom in Christ

Freedom in Christ

William Wallace: [Deliberately.] I am William Wallace, and I see a whole army of my countrymen, here, in defiance of Tyranny. You’ve come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? [Shouts of denial from the crowd.]  Blonde Soldier: Fight? Against that? No! [Members of the Scottish army shout in agreement.] We will run! And we will live.  William Wallace: Aye. Fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live...at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance – just one chance – to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives [With growing excitement] but they’ll never take our freedom! 

This week Bryce and I explore the idea of freedom in the scriptures. Some of our favorite moments in film and history involve individuals fighting for freedom. Christ is the ultimate freedom fighter and is the model that all other freedom fighters, knowingly or unknowingly, model when they give their lives for the sake of freedom.  

Definition of freedom 1: the quality or state of being free: such as a: the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action 

Key Texts: John 8:32,35-36; Galatians 4:1-7,9,21-31; 5:1,13-15; Romans 6:15-23; 8:2,21; Revelation 12:10-12

Interview: Keagan, an Agnostic Atheist (part 3)

Today, on the For The King podcast, I am joined with one of my good friends. Keagan and I met at college during our undergraduate careers and we soon became good friends doing lots of random things together. Today Keagan and I continue on our discussion of our worldviews, mainly talking about the problem of evil in the world and the evils that many people charge Christians with. This episode is more of a debate/dialogue than the first part of this interview. Tune in and hear Keagan espouse his beliefs and I mine. We both take time to defend our views and press each other on some of the points that we disagree with the other. Thank you for listening! Please check out Keagan's podcast!

Texts: 1 Timothy 1:8– 10, Exodus 21:16, Deuteronomy 15:12-15 

Slavery in the bible was voluntary and the slaves were to be such free under Mosaic law. Man-stealing was a crime punishable by death, a command unheard of in the ancient near east, yet the bible institutes such a law. This topic was touched on in another episode, "the uniqueness of America". 

Remember, the first society to every formally and universally outlaw slavery in legislation is the United States of America. This had nothing to do with our intelligence but EVERYTHING to do with us being a Christian nation. Atheism cannot be accounted for ever freeing any humans from any bondage ever.

Thanks for listening! 

Romans 6:16-23 “Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
