NFL Sets Stiff Penalties for the Unvaccinated

"Is cracking down to get players to get Covid 19 vaccines Just days before training camps began, All 32 teams got a memo saying outbreaks among unvaccinated players could cause teams to forfeit games. That would be costly for both the teams and players CBS this morning Saturday, co host Dana Jacobson explains Why there's this no nonsense approach. There's Brady's past Grand Kowske. At the end of the 2020 NFL season, the league managed to crown a champion. Getting there wasn't easy. Covid outbreaks among teams forced the league to reschedule several games, which caused logistical and financial headaches. NFL team owners want to have these games played in full and as safely as possible. Jonathan Jones is a CBS sports NFL insider. He says the league hopes to avoid a repeat of last year, which is why it sent a memo to all 32 teams Thursday, warning that if a covid spike on a team postpones again, which can't be rescheduled, the team responsible will have to forfeit shoulder the financial losses and players on both teams won't get paid. The memo upset several league stars like opera wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who posted then deleted this tweet being put in a position to hurt my team because I don't want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL. He later posted. I got about nine more years than me. You look at the monetary side of this, and of course, it does not benefit the owners to miss out on any of these games. Jones says The NFL memo is proof that owners don't think enough players are protected.

Brazilian Protesters Call for Jair Bolsonaro to Be Impeached

"Brazil, Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets for the fourth weekend in a row. They're calling for the Covid vaccination program to be speeded up and demanding the impeachment of President Jacobo scenario. Gayle McClelland reports. Out bolsonaro. Message in 20 states across Brazil. As the coronavirus death toll in the country passes half a million protesters demand the resignation of the man, they say is to blame President Jair Bolsonaro epitome. We allowed this person to become the president of the Republic and we are seeing the consequences of that today in the absurd number of deaths due to the pandemic. Due to the irresponsible way in which he handled the pandemic in Brazil, Brazil, the president has been famously dismissive of the health crisis opposing masks and social distancing measures. And he's been criticized for slow rollout of vaccines. Only 17% of the population has fully vaccinated with the presidential election looming next year. Mr. Bolsonaro's approval rating is at a record low and he faces investigation in the Senate on charges of corruption. As night fell, skirmishes broke out between protesters and police. Fired tear gas and through flash bangs. Such clashes are likely to persist, putting President Bolsonaro under increasing pressure as the pandemic continues to exact a devastating toll.

Does the Landmark Opioid Settlement Do Enough to Help?

"We just mentioned the opioid epidemic. This week, four of the world's biggest healthcare companies, including Johnson and Johnson reached $26 billion settlement for their role in the opioid crisis. These corporations made and distributed huge quantities of prescription pain pills at a time when addiction and overdose rates in the U. S were surging. So what happens now? NPR correspondent Brian Mann reports full time on addiction and is with us now to walk us through this complicated deal, Brian. Welcome. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me first. Could you just go over the main points of the settlement? You know these companies the drug maker Johnson and Johnson and also these three big drug wholesalers, AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health and McKesson They've agreed to pay a maximum amount of $26 billion, And as part of that agreement, a huge percentage of the money will go to drug treatment programs and social service programs. Health care things like that, and negotiators say this is a big improvement over the tobacco settlement of the 19 nineties. Where, if you remember, a lot of the money has been siphoned away by governments for other things not used to reduce smoking. So this money would be paid out over 17 years, and supporters say that will mean a steady stream of funding for programs that might help with this long term process of ending. This devastating public health crisis. Now two states Washington State in West Virginia, have already announced that they won't sign on to this national settlement and the city of Philadelphia has also rejected it. Why, Why is that? Is there something that they say is missing? Yeah, For one thing, there's no admission of wrongdoing by these companies or their executives, You know, as part of this wave of lawsuits against these corporations that got deep into the opioid business. We've learned factual details about how they flooded communities with pain pills. They kept growing that drug pipeline even as addiction rates and deaths grew. Internal documents from some of these firms showed that at times executives joked about the people suffering addiction. And a lot of these officials who reject this

"Answer a few questions on this. How can i move toward empathy in action. When i just don't feel like it guys that's going to be a common feeling. We're all gonna feel in our lifetimes and the reason why is because our flesh loves to be selfish because about us in our just prone to send kind of way is going to want to serve ourselves very rarely. Are you just like gosh. I just really want to sacrifice myself for the good of others very rarely. are you like. let's just be generous. Because i feel like it today. You know. it's it's rarely that feeling that drives you to do something. It's a conviction right. It's it's believing. The word of god that the seeds we sow have terminal value that when we give time energy the resources that he's given us for the kingdom of god and the good of people that is the best use of our lives right. There's conviction that that causes us to do the things we do to give to what we give to and to support and love the people we support and love. it's it's conviction. And so what i would say is make plan for it. Don't just hope you're gonna feel that way you know and and give money or time or energy or gifts you gotta make strategic plan for it. My husband and i do this every year. We do it with everything from our time to our energy to our money. We make a plan of what we're to give to and how we're going to do it strategically you have to be strategic so so grab you know a friend or your spouse or a parent and say okay. Would you help me dream about how to spend my my year. Well and then when it's part of your plan when it's worked into your schedule you feel more accountable to it because you've made commitments to people and you've promised things that you want to deliver on. I think that we don't wait for feeling. We just make a plan. What can i pray for to overcome my indifference. You know what i do. I listened to scripture. So y'all know. I love the dwell app. I listen to scripture. I play that over my myself when i'm really feeling in different. I don't feel like having a quiet time. Getting in the word. I will play scripture and i will pray scripture so i will i will listen and then i will pray that scripture for myself for people i love i let god give me the words sometimes. I just don't have the energy. The thoughts concerns. I just. I don't feel it. So that is a great way to do is to let scripture be a guide for prayer guys. It's just not always gonna feel fun. That's just part of walking with god. I think we have such an our culture and idolatry of our feelings that we don't understand that walking with god rarely feels magical. Right is just it's mundane but what the power of doing that day. In and day out is that it changes us. It causes us to be more steadfast. So that we aren't as movable win tragedy comes and i think that's the exciting thing about following god is that he's building within us store. Houses of of hope store houses of character storehouses puree and store houses of himself of who he is and what he wants to accomplish through us an ns. And so i don't think we wait for tragedy to god. We we meet with god day in and day out and that is developing in us maturity and steadfastness man does. The world needs to mature grown-up christians. Right now so so we need to be those that garda that take responsibility for ourselves and take responsibility for those that god's given us right in our path how jesus combat that feeling of being overwhelmed while i don't know completely i mean we don't get a complete insight into the way he thought and felt all the time but you absolutely see him withdrawing a lot and he would withdraw for a short period. He was for night or day. And then he'd be walking on water back out to the disciples or he would withdraw for forty days and forty nights so you see long periods of time that he would withdraw and you would see short periods of time. That he would withdraw. And we've got to be those two. There are times. I said this to a friend. That's in a pretty demanding ministry day in and day out and she feels so responsible for so many people. And i said okay. When was the last time you took a good long break. When was the last time you had fun. When was the last time you made a plan that may be felt selfish to you but filled up your soul and made you laugh guys. It's not wrong. God rested on the seventh day. And if god rested we better be resting. If jesus needed time to withdraw to be with his father to refocus to rest. We need that if god of the universe needed that. Then we need that too and so don't be afraid to withdraw to certainly in that time. Don't watch more news. don't watch you know. Don't fill your mind with things that don't cause rest for you. Get outdoors being nature. Pray have fun. Go out with some friends and connect with the people that love you and that you love and talk about what's going on in your heart. Those are godly beautiful practices that we need to make sure that we're a part of every single week that that we have days where our phones are plugged in and were not responding to things where we have days where we're laughing with our family and friends and that's our biggest priority and our kids need to feel about our friends need to feel about as well. So why should i care. Some of you're listening to this and your problem is not over carrying your problem is that you don't care that you really do. Put your head in the sand and stop caring and this question. Why should i care about things like race or politics or suffering in the world. Can i just put my head down and do my job. No guys together collectively. We can make a difference in these major issues. I believe that now. I believe the road to making that difference happens in our real lives. But i look back and if i hadn't have cared about racial reconciliation i wouldn't have the most beautiful stories of the last few years of my life. Through if gathering with latasha morrison and with other friends that that we have had these conversations and have seen it changed my life and given me more compassion to lead and a care giving me knowledge of how to speak into these times and walk through this so so yes we care in fact some of the caring is going to bring the greatest stories of your life but we care about the things that god's given us to care about we've got to not pick every issue we have to pick are few in throw in and care and serve and do it with people aside so that we don't burn out no we don't get to put our head in the sand. No nope nope. No but we do get to rest. And there's a difference be shirt. This is strategically what we're going to care about this year. This is what we're going to build into and that might change every year for you but you're not going to care about everything you're going to hear about these things and then no one of those things has to be rest and has to be time and fun in space with the people you love so that we can do this for the long haul. So that when i'm eighty five i still love people. I still love the word of god. I still love serving people with the word of god. I don't wanna burn out in my mid forties. Because i thought i could save the world.

"Are talking about being indifference in different. What is it in different in prince. Anyway none of us want to feel it or maybe we do in this season. Maybe we all do wanna feel it because it is kind of a wild ride right now. Some of you all rise to moments like this. I mean your heart beats faster like let's go. That's how. I was in the first few weeks of the pandemic. In fact we are on spring break when the pandemic broke out. And i remember getting you know on the phone with my team. I mean we were on zoom i zoom call. We're all home are all realizing this is going to be a big deal. And my heart's beating guys. This is a moment for us to lead. This is a moment for us to make a difference. I had a great speech. Guys think i cried. And i felt it my bones like. Let's let's take this moment. Let's sees it we did. I mean we really. Did we shift tv in that time. We you know the podcast was great. We dealt with all kinds of things here you know. Yeah we ran like crazy. We built like crazy in the first few weeks and then about week four. Just shut down. I was like oh this is going to be long. There's going to be longer than i thought and all that adrenaline that i felt in the first few weeks of the pandemic like my fight or flight. I was ready to fight. I was flight. I was in bed i was like. Don't make me put on makeup. Don't make me do anything after my my house. I don't wanna talk about what's important. I'm discouraged i'm heavy. I don't feel hopeful for the future. I feel down and tired. I think there's a fatigue that's over all of us through the season that that's very difficult to name. It's very difficult to quantify because in some ways we've never gone slower about our days right. We've never worn more comfy clothes and then at home more and yet we've never been more tired. And i think that fatigue is coming from a place that we've got to name and we've got to talk about that that we are watching the whole world's problems day in and day out and on our shoulders were not meant to carry all that and so what do we do when we're carrying more burden than we can possibly sustain. We check out and guys it is. I know this is an odd conversation because what what it sounds like i'm saying is don't care so much what it sounds like. I'm saying on a on a i. Listen is is check out and don't listen to the news and don't be educated on what's going on. Don't care about all the problems in the world. that is not at all what i'm saying. I'm saying we've got to pace ourselves. We've got to understand our limitations and we've got to be about the things that only we can be about right. We cannot take on the problems of the world. it is something. I'm preaching to the choir right now is any of you that know me have watched me lead for a long time. You know. I care a lot. And i care about a lot of things i care about unborn children. I care about racial issues. I care about the souls of people and making sure they know the gospel of jesus. Christ i care about the bible. I wanna teach it. I wanna quit people to know it to live it to understand it. I care about the poor. I care about the sex trafficking in the world. i care because god's given me a platform. And i feel like i am not spending my life. Well if i don't make a difference every day of my life it is part of the way. I'm wired but guys i have had to learn that i cannot care about everything and i cannot make a difference everywhere. If i don't choose the places that i'm supposed to serve in the places where i'm supposed to be and so my priorities have had to get reordered and it's not that i won't care about sex trafficking. It's that i'm going to put in an order. i'm gonna place in my life. The values and the commitments. That i have this year knowing that i have a limited amount of energy money and time. Now that's cool. Because let me tell you what i've learned about. This is that what's cool about. Limited energy time and money is that we are a part of a body and that body in fact that body goes around the entire earth county where there are not believers. There is a network of those believers through local churches throughout the world. You may not feel that on a given day but it's there. I just left a bible translation conference. And i'm telling you it's there within thirteen years. The bible is going to be an every single heart. Language is going to be now finally for the first time in history it is going be an every the network of the church is on the move behind the scenes in ways that you cannot imagine. Now what's so cool about that and we can't forget is that we are supposed to play our part. Corinthians is really clear if you're an ibm great. i if you're an elbow be great elbow if you're finger finger. Whatever your part is no matter. How lowly or or whatever embarrassing it is you know if you're so be a great show you know that's paul says he's don't look down on the different parts because all the parts are needed if you don't have that toe. It's a real big bummer. So you know whatever it is that you're good at we've got to bring it. We'd bring to the table and we got to do it. But the problem is were being bombarded every day with all these problems and it's as if we don't care if we don't care about everyone's problems guys it's impossible and we're losing by trying. We're losing. We're not being very strategic and scripture calls us to actually be very strategic and so my hope is that we will get more comfortable with our limited time are limited energy are limited money and will be able to say. Hey let's let's be strategic. Let's take our limits and less use them. Well let's make better choices so rather than just normally walking through life trying to care about everything and feeling bad if we don't and judging others if they don't care about the issues we care most about why don't we look at it more like a tapestry in our little place and do the best we can with it and believe that god loves the world and he raises up people with different gifts and different passions to cover different problems because if we could own our spot rather than checking out because we're so exhausted by the whole big picture of all the problems if we get on our spot. I believe we can make a huge difference. So one of the problems with indifference is causes us to miss the spot. We've been given to miss the gifts. We've been given to miss the problems we've been given this all now. Those problems might be in your home. They might be right under your nose. I have a friend that she is so passionate about racial reconciliation about causing growth in the city of dallas among the haves and the have-nots he she wants to see.

"That Unfortunately that experiment did not work but nevertheless the idea was they're extremely important idea to try to verify Einstein's Hypotheses about gravity right now at now a lot of these experiments you're saying Understanding more about about the moon helps us to understand earth which is extremely important. There's there's some physics aspects to to what you're studying can any of this be applied to future exploration knowing what that would be like to if we were to live on the moon for extended periods of times any of this data relevant to maybe those missions in the future the main Data that we have now about the moon that's relevant to future Settlements Future Activities of the moon is that comes from the soil shells because those soils have been gathering the resources of the moon that are are are put out as part of the solar wind. There's hydrogen there's nitrogen carbon Principally and with hydrogen you can always make water and and extract oxygen then from the rocks themselves so for for the future are primary knowledge that we have gathered has been from the soils of the moon and and as I indicated earlier. There there is a A light isotope of helium called helium. Three that is the only resource that we know about on the moon that potentially can be of great value here on on earth it is an ideal fuel. For Fusion Power Producers No radioactive residuals of any kind but produces electrical power at very high officiency itself are with the Heavy Isotope of hydrogen called Tyrian So we have two great discoveries discoveries based on really what Neil Armstrong sample ten zero eight four that that soil that he filled up the rock box with in that. We know that we have resources that can support us when we decide to live on the moon and when we decided to go to Mars and a single resource that may be of extraordinary ordinary value here on earth Particularly as we try to wean ourselves from fossil fuels jumping back to your apollo seventeen mission. You spent three. Today's on the surface. Can you tell me about actually living beyond the work itself. Did you establish a routine. Or what was it like to actually live there for almost never any routine eighteen. When you're on the moon something always happens that disrupts the plan for one thing Right as soon as we almost as soon as we landed when we're having our first meal well the compartment Where the meals were stored opened up the pressure from on the The atmosphere the pressure in the bags had put enough Pressure on the door of that compartment than when we opened it up. All the meals came out in the cabin so we had to figure out a way to stuff all that back into the cabin Also you you you never can really experience 163. G continuously continuously without being there. And fact that's the essential ingredient of the excitement of being on the moon is being there You can't transfer that to you or anybody else so you have to go there yourself so I hope you have that opportunity someday the but We we of course knew how to sling our hammocks for sleep But until you actually do that and get in them you don't realize how comfortable one sixth gravity can be. I slept extremely well on the moon. I'd wake wake up about every two hours and listen to make sure that the fans and the pumps were all still running. You don't want complete silence of the Moon. Believe me and and then I go back actually so I I slept very well. I can't speak for the commander I can't hear anyone else but I slept very well On. Someone's like the the routine was adaptability ability really just just invest the essence of being human being able to adapt. Tell me about particularly on your mission. You traveled pretty far in the Lunar Rover. V somebody some of the advantages. You had Driving that distance and really expanding your reach on the moon. Well there was a great debate. ah before the lunar over was finally picked as a system for use on the moon between having a driving machine and having a hoppy machine and That that was an issue debate. The chemists tend to favour hopping from place to place because they just want a sample here and a sample. There's a field. He'll geologists wants to see the context as you approach a particular sample. Say you want to see how. How is everything else fit into that particular place? So that debate debate went on and among geologists and engineers as well and Max J. WHO's the chief engineer down here at the manned spacecraft center the Johnson Space Center it He finally just asked one question. Says how are you going to train to use a hopper and that pretty well the settle that it's GonNa. It's going to be very difficult. We've been going through the lunar landing training vehicle experience where three men including Neil Armstrong had to bail out of that machine. It was a very difficult thing to train with The lunar module pilots finally were not trained in that because just the difficulties of using it and And so The MACs had a great deal of influence on whether we had lunar over our Luna Hopper now the Lunar Rover itself worked very. Well we could go at about about ten or twelve kilometers an hour over most of the terrain that we drove on it could We drove up twenty degree slope to get to station six the big boulder there So it It performed extremely well Never we never had any problem and there were a little glitches on on the other two missions missions but we had never had any notable. Problem the Boeing people the Marshall People in General Motors. People all did a wonderful job in building designing and building that particular vehicle it It really made a great deal of the the main contribution. I think I made to Operations of the Lunar Rover while well For policy was to develop a rover sampler which was basically a message. Set of what we call. Dixie Cups Anna Samper Emperor. We could put on one of the extension handles and I wouldn't have to get off in order just to get a soil. Sample are small rock sample just by reaching down and those samples have turned out to be extremely streaming valuable because they give a lot more context between stations of how were the soil of the area changing As we approach different sites right so and you were able to do that. Because of the distance you can cover with the rover. Yeah no no question about. We've covered a total of about thirty two kilometers after over The farthest are this we We went away from the Lunar Module Challenger was about seven kilometers to station to the base of the South China Sea the highest highest mountain in the Now one of the things you mentioned about Looking out onto the surface of the boone. You mentioned the blackness of the sky but you also mentioned so you can see the earth can you tell me about Seeing the Earth from the moon and some thoughts. I can't really tell you gotta go there. It's it's it's always in the same part of the sky because The Moon as a moon goes around here that keeps the same face towards the earth and so the earth is always in the same part of this guy. If you're right in the center of the Moon is going to be directly above you. It was a little bit. It was down below That Point a little bit for us. It was was always over this high mountain South Eve And so seeing that It was really remarkable experience in that black sky and it's primarily early blue with the white clouds patterns that were familiar with but the end though the one thing that stands out on the earth are the large desert areas such as Australia for example sends out almost as an orange beacon even from a distance of the moon. Two hundred fifty thousand miles from. Where are we were reflecting on Apollo Seventeen? Can you tell me about your roommates gene Cernan. And and Ron Evans outstanding crewmates. I think I can say that for. You're all the cruise for the most part they They worked together extremely well once assigned to a mission the approach in very professionally I'd not many of them. Were close friends. I don't think afterwards I think the The Apollo twelve crew is probably a good example of a very close close friends but Most of the people just they were professional came together as a crew worked extremely well and and did extraordinarily great. The jobs on each of the missions the Now Ron Evans. I think probably knew the command module America better than anybody ever known the command module. I was really very very impressed with what Ron could do. he He end of course he had to spend three days alone in orbit around the moon but In that process operated a wide variety of remote sensing instruments as well as kept Prepared in order to receive up. Should we have to leave the moon in a hurry. Sorry jumping till after Apollo. Seventeen returning You know you were conducting these experiments and you've already mentioned some of the findings findings from some of those experiments. Some of the some of the things you've discovered from doing geological surveys on the moon but Can you tell me some of the things some of the other highlights nights of the of the things you learned during her stay. We'll just recently. We've been able to take the nitrogen isotopes that are in the the deep core core of the that we obtained On Apollo Seventeen. Take the data from those nitrogen isotopes and and look like we have found a major change in solar activity Just about five hundred million years years ago we're still working on that but it It looks like something strange happened to the sun increased its luminosity as the amount out of energy that was coming from the sun about Through five hundred million years ago and one of the interesting things is on earth. That's when there was this Explosion of life We call it the Cambrian explosion about five hundred fifty million years ago And most people said that was because the earth was warmer. Well maybe it was warmer because the sun changed its Its way of operating That's the kind of thing we're working on right now today. And it's it's made possible in large part because of the advance of analytical technology WH- What we do today compared to what we could do. Fifty years ago with the samples is almost night and day. It's really amazing. It's like to discover your water in the act the Orange Act that I sampled That was done in the first in two thousand eight We never we thought up until that time that the moon was bone-dry that there was no water we knew there were the bottles but no water..

"A substantial period. The time the rest of your schedule is very favorable. This both well for the raiders to make a run and look to me. Are they a super bowl contender. No no are they a team that could get into the play offs. Yes are they get into the playoffs and then he gained made but I think they're a team that could definitely get into the the playoffs and then it's a new season all better off. That's for running the ball and defense comes into play. I think tomorrow night. The raiders really establish themselves a as a tea and where they want to be and where they're going to be going forward from this point on the rest of the time it does win moving forward here in Las Vegas. I hope you're right. I would love for them to get a big victory like that because then I'll have to sweat out to sit on the couch and be nervous like I band throughout the rest of the season. I don't I think it's GonNa be that much of a spread. I do think that the raiders win the game but I think that they win. Twenty seven twenty four. How did they come away with Three more points because one. The charges missed field. Goal onto a to that raiders. Crowd is going to give the raiders that energy to go ahead and get that extra field goal that they need later in the game and a separate and get that victory again. Twenty seven twenty. Four is what I pick I think. The strength of the raiders. A crowd the home crowd there and Oakland the great crowd there in Oakland. The great fans there in Oakland. They'll feed the team. They'll they'll they'll push them a little bit more to get that W. and then Daniel Carlson comes up with big field goal late and of course the charges find a way to screw things up and they'll miss a field goal at some point but that's how they come up with a victory and move the five and four on the season with a twenty twenty seven twenty four victory. The chargers struggled in the red zone last week against Green Bay. That's indicative of a new First Time play they call her like their offense coordinator. Those struggles.

"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by Dr Stephen Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past asked traveled back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of Christianity. This is our story family history. Let's get started. Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history on this episode. I'm once again on location in colonial oneal Williamsburg in Virginia last time we were together. We were outside of Bruton Parish Church a congregation that was founded an Anglican congregation Gatien that was founded in sixteen seventy four Williamsburg was founded as a town in sixteen thirty eight and of course Jamestown Jamestown was the original capital but in sixteen ninety nine the capital of the colony was moved to here and it held that capital all the way until seventeen eighty when and during the revolutionary war it was deemed that Richmond would be a safer place well we are interested in the year seventeen sixty five in fact a date in seventeen sixty five on June seventeen seventeen sixty five a group of seventeen men got together and petitioned Russian the court here and Williamsburg. This is what they requested. We intend to make use of a house in the city of Williamsburg situated on part of a lot belonging to Mr George Davenport as a place for the public worship of God. According to the Protestant Austin dissenters of the Presbyterian denomination well. This is an Anglican colony. The Anglican Church is the the established church and these seventeen presbyterians wanted an authorized legal Presbyterian church to be established they actually actually added a ps two it and the PS was this as we are unable to obtain a settled minister. We intend this place at present only for occasional worship when we have opportunity to hear any legally qualified minister well. The city of Williamsburg granted their request. They established their church perch. It was just a small little modest meeting houses. They mentioned they're not even able to have a settled minister. I walked it off and it measures about twenty two defeat by thirty six feet and in this very simple meeting house these presbyterians met member how Paul ends Romans by listing listing off a number of people well here are seventeen names William Smith John Connolly Walter Lenox James Holdcroft Robert Burke Nicholson John orchiston James Douglas James Atherton William Gemmell Edward Cummins Thomas Skinner Daniel Hoy John Bell James Smith William Brown John Morris and Charles Hankins. These were carpenters vendor's craftsman. Some of them worked in the courthouse. These were the seventeen who started this church on June. Seventeen seventeen sixty five these presbyterians came out of the great awakening. They were a new side Presbyterian Rian Church that meant that they were not only in favor of the great awakening but many of these were likely converted during the great awakening some of them might have been in converted under the Ministry of George Whitfield. Remember that sermon that we heard a paragraph from by Steve Lawson. Some of them might have been converted by I Samuel Davies Samuel Davies was a Presbyterian Missionary Tha Virginia his first wife died and his second wife was Jane Holt. Her family was a prominent family here Williamsburg and so Samuel Davies made many visits to the capital city not only to see his in laws but also to petition before the Virginia legislature and before the Virginia governor for Religious Freedom and no doubt bolstered these presbyterians that were here in Williamsburg one of those ministers who came occasionally to preach actually to those ministers who came occasionally here to preach once they've established their meeting eating house were trained by Samuel Davies well. That's the Presbyterian meeting house here in the charming quaint colonial Williamsburg and I'm Steve Nichols and thanks for listening to five minutes in churches for more ordination or to listen to past episodes.

"There's a scripture in revelations that says when we get away from god or when we become lukewarm to repent and do the first works over again think about this when a first comes to faith in christ. Their hearts are burning. They're excited about god and they never miss church and they read the bible and they go to prayer meeting and they share their faith right and in so but then if they begin to cool off or maybe they just flat out got cold. Yeah totally backslid. The way of the world. How do you get back into spiritual shape. Well we go back and do the same things we did when we first came to christ Open the bible again back to prayer meeting back to church with some regularity and we do the same. Things is kind of like this. Okay like remember when you started dating okay so when you started dating what do you do. You hold hands And you walk arm-in-arm and you kiss and you hold the door for her right. You do all these nice things you know when you're in love and then the relationship gets cold right. We don't hold hands anymore you know. We're sleeping on each side of the bed right and we don't say those i love us anymore instead of holding the door we just get the and and if a per a person if you fall in love with spouse go back and go out to dinner again of good sit by candlelight again play play. Play some sexy music again. I've tried to solve the internal struggle song like three times. A lady commodores or sexual healing. Oh no not that one. But remember barry white i mean. That's romantic is. What i'm saying is and you hold the hands again. And you go out on a date night again when a couple drifts away from each other go back and do the things you did. That made you fall in love. Yeah and when a person falls away from the lord go back and do the things that your heart was lit up for when you first came to christ and that'll get you back into shape. It's really good not even charging you for that not even charging. I'm gonna go put on some barry white now. The whole shows free wells a rice and that note four thirty. I'm going home light. A candle put on very light. It is to deal with me. Were opened and he walked right on through. So we're really glad that you joined us here for conversations with the thanks.

"I don't i don't know but We sometimes like you just said get so in a hurry to get married. Yeah satisfy the flesh. If you will that we can marry the wrong person and when it comes to believe her with an unbeliever. The bible is very clear not to go that route. I'll take it one more step further not as marrying sometimes lets say to people want to get into a business partnership. Okay i would say even when it comes to business ship if if a believer wants to go into partnership with an unbeliever. You're really being yoked together. Yeah and we only use that verse. When it comes to marriage yeah but when it comes to business partnerships a believer with an unbeliever. I believe that scripture applies there too. Yeah because what if it comes down to the point where you as a believer really feel this urging on your spirit You know the gods trying to say all right. I want you to do is i want you to give x percent of your prophets away to this organization and now obviously you have to bring that to your partner and your partner is gonna look like what do you mean that. That's less money for your pocket in mind. My would you do that and then you have to kind of go to try to help them understand some things that they may not have been prepared for. Absolutely i just met today with a with an individual goes orcher. Cheer who has a miracle ear franchise. Okay and then he had a partner and they were deciding you know where to give a percentage of each sale to charity. Yeah now think about it now. If you've got a believer like you just said and they want to give to two submission or some work right and then the partner goes. I don't want to give away to any church. Stuff just causes a big divide right right. So i think that scripture has you don't be unequally yoked together with an unbeliever i think that that transcends marriage yeah that's good even into the business world..

These people then said it to me and the game telephone does look it up for yourself and find out that the specific person and lay what he's saying what she's saying to scripture so there's that you mean the politicians yeah get the politician. Okay actually look up what the platform is. And we're saying the same thing different words all right by the way. Thanks for the vitamin c. Stuff yeah you you really nursing those things. Yeah because really was under the weather the other day and each. Save me save me. He says put eight ounces of water in vitamin c. stuff. I felt better right away on telling you that maybe it was the prayer that i mean. I'm just saying that. Normally when i take those things i take it is just a couple of gulps. You've been nursing nothing all day. Long people think. I drink a lot of coffee. I just drink the same. The same cop just six hours as a whole lot. Different okay with the election is coming a year from november. And let's let's way each candidate which one lines up closer to biblical values. Vote that way. Amen next question there. We go this one's if you thought that one was it me once this one's fine so with i think especially with not exclusively young adults a young adults and people who are unmarried. I think sometimes if they are feeling as if they've been waiting for a really long time for the right person to come about they start looking for the opportunity to compromise and so the question is what would be the impact to one person's life if they married a believer versus a non believer. Yeah yeah this this. This is not a hard question okay. it's easy question. Maybe you might not like the answer. Here's what the bible says. I believe it's in hebrews. I don't have chapter and verse. It says do not be unequally yoked together with an unbeliever and what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness or what fellowship has light with darkness so the scripture scripture is very very clear about this that. If you're a believer doesn't say don't have unbelieving friends because we need to be salt and light and we talked about that last week. Yeah but when it comes to marriage marriage is a covenant a covenant relationship right and the bible says do not yoke yourself together. And you know what are you. Yoke is right..

"Because it's it's a pro-abortion abortion and pro gay rights and pro gay marriage and so christians have been a lot of christians not all a lot of christians beat up on the democratic platform for that right then. There are christians who are democrats who fight back against the republican platform because it comes off as pro rich yep and not helping the poor. Yeah pro war. Yeah and lacking measures for peace. I'm not that's not my call. I'm just saying what the perception is out there. republican christians hating on the democratic platform for their issues on gay marriage and abortion rights and then christian democrats aiding the republican platform shore because pro war if you will or all for the rich and not for the poor. Jesus was for the poor in the margin right and so there are there. Are there more to the each platform but we have to take a really good look at what the scriptures say and. I hate to say this but it comes down to which is the lesser of two evils. And sometimes it makes me want to not want to vote at all slink almost freeze. You know what i mean. It's not it's not for the sake of not doing your civic duty or whatever it is and it's just you there's none of it's nice none of it's pretty none of it's clear what the exact right answer is and so it. It almost makes you freeze and be like i. I just don't know what to do. And you can find. You can find. I'm sure in in in both platforms. Where there is things that really don't line up with the scriptures But each one musee each one. We believe that we have to open our bible. And i would you know what i would do i would do. I would find what what each party's platform stands for. Yeah i would you want to be an educated voter. Not just a father was a republican..

Jesus bible each platform each party two evils both platforms each one christians christian democrats republican

"We couldn't go to the carnival. My a my uncle was like you can't even go to a football game. It was just it was just. It was way off. There was nothing wrong with a football game or or carnival but But we have to. We have to be careful in our entertainment choices that we don't pollute our mind with a lot of this world's crapping and so you know people say well. Is it wrong to listen to secular music. Well i don't think so. I listen to secular music. So is that okay. I this conversations with ross. Now he's totally cop it out. You know there's some there's there's there's good love song secular and there's some really bad bad junk out there. The tuxedo shirt gang violence and rape and yeah and abusing women. We have to guard our heart. There are some movies are movies. Like i guess. Your what's your thing. You're going through the night of injures endgame. I'm sure that's a good movie. It's you may want to avoid fifty shades of grey. Yeah that's a good idea. I now know the answer is no. I'll answer but we have to guard our. I think if it's if the music or the movie even is full of vulgarity and take god's name in vain full of lustful images that are going to send your mind trip and And we have to be careful to avoid. The bible says that will void the very appearance of evil to guard your heart so whether it's music or a movie or a place we're going to go. You know well out clubbing. Or whatever we have to guard our heart so sort of come off as my wonderful parents or the early days of church and say you can't do this. You can't go here. You can't do that no no. no we. Don't have rules like that. I think we all have to be careful that we guard our heart and we guard guard our mind. Yeah because this is the gate right here this mind. This is the gate the gate. Are you with me. Broaden the gay and there's the ear gate we have to be careful that we don't allow the poison of this world to come in and pollute our mind. And i think we have to look at it that way. Yeah and i think that's really good. It's not to say that anything that doesn't perfectly and directly promotes. The name of jesus should all be thrown out of course not. I don't think we're saying anything along. Those lines were saying is kind of mirroring what what scripture says in philippians four eight says finally brothers and sisters whatever is true and noble whatever is right whatever is pure and lovely and admirable excellent praiseworthy..
