"So I don't want to deal quickly with what's actually going on here. What's happening? Why? Why is he written these words, and then we can take a look at Paul's deeper teaching this is so often the pattern in this letter Paul will be dealing with a specific surface issue or argument, and then he uses that as an occasion as a launch pad to go into something more, profound some deeper truth. So let's review for a second Paul as you will remember spent a lot of time with the Christian community in the city of Corinth, and this Greek city of Corinth, he had a strong relationship with these Christians. But that relationship was not without its problems. But in addition to whatever issues he might have had with the Carinthian. Christians. We also know that there is a group of outsiders. Are there have been people who have come into this church into the city to this Christian community, and we're trying to undermine both Paul and his mission? They were calling themselves Christians. But they were attacking Paul's authority. They were slandering his integrity. They were teaching misleading and probably legalistic and toxic doctrines, distortions of the gospel and these critics exploited any and every opportunity to sabotage Paul's relationship with the Corinthians. And even at some point. Apparently, they presented to the Carinthian church leaders, some type of document or some letter of recommendation from other church leaders presumably in a place, perhaps like Antioch work more. Probably jerusalem. They presented these letters of recommendation to to challenge Paul's authority claiming that he didn't have the authority to do and say the things that he was saying, and maybe even to depose Paul's leadership came to Corinth, and they were saying we speak for the council of Jerusalem. We speak for the ones who are really in charge. Paul speaks only for himself, and we have these credentials. Paul doesn't have any credentials. We got the paperwork. Paul doesn't have the paperwork. We've got the references. Paul doesn't have the references. But in rebuttal in the passage we've read today Paul is saying you don't need a lot of paperwork to tell you who I am. Because you know, me, you know, me by living with me, you know, me by our relationship, you know, me by our ministry together that is my resume. That's my CV. If you wanna know who I am don't go looking for a letter of recommendation from Jerusalem or somewhere else turn to the guy next to you and ask him who I am. And then when somebody wants to know who I am, and they ask you, tell them that, you know, me personally, you know, me, and I know you we have a track record together. We've laughed and we've cried together we've suffered and we've celebrated together we've seen friends die for our faith and we've seen others road beautifully. Unbear- fruit in their faith. And we've eaten at the Lord's table together. So many times that I can't even remember how many times we've done it. He say, you know, knee. You don't have to check my references. You are my references. And if anyone wants to know who I really am or anyone wants to know the strength of my character, or they challenge my integrity, or if they want to know what kind of work I've done. I can send them to you. He says you are my letter a recommendation, and then it's kind of like you step back for a second. He said, hey, you know, that's pretty good. You're my letter of recommendation, but, but you know, what you're also someone else's letter of recommendation. That's a good metaphor that'll preach. And so moves to apply to them. He says, you know, what it's not just me. You're not just my letter recommendation. You are also a reference a recommendation for Christ. You're very lives are letter that anyone can read just by looking at you Christ himself wrote it not with eight but with God's living spirit. It's not chiseled in stone, but carved into human lives. You're not only great positive reference for me and my ministry. Your lives are living proof of the transforming power. And the love of Jesus Christ. He has changed you and people can see it. Is perhaps reflecting on these ideas? He says I've seen you grow in the fruit of the spirit. I've seen it with my own eyes. I've seen how Christ's love for you has turned your life around where there was once selfishness. Now, there's compassion where there was once guilt. There's now east where there was despair. There's no comfort and hope, and we're there was perversion and corruption and dollar tree. There's now reverence and integrity where there was once fear. There is now say, and where there were once works on the flash now, I see the fruit of the.

"That's who we want it. And I feel like that kind of set the tone for his life. Eventually he actually grown bitter about the war because it it seemed like such a young thing to do to be like, oh, I'm gonna go. Join the army. I'm a fight the bad guys. But he found out that you know, you'll see in death every day. And then there were a lot of freak accidents. There was this huge freak accidents. Like there was there was a Jewish private name. Melvin Levy and Levy was delivering a comic monologue for the platoon as as like you standing under a palm tree and a food crate was dropped from a plane above and decapitated him. And so Serlin actually let the funeral services for Levy and place the star of David over his grave. So like, not only are you seeing the death of the war. But you're also seeing free accidents like that I can imagine that's not only kind of making bitter towards the war. But. I feel like there's no way to not have this kind of morbid kind of creative thought when you see things like that. And you know, like, yeah, I would say also during the time, I think like you were saying too that he was exposed to this idea of good versus evil and then evil not necessarily being evil. Or are we the evil actually was something that I think that he tackled a lot pretty often human nature as well. As during this time, just the amount of racism that he saw was definitely influential in his writing and something that's really fascinating as we can we can link this in our footnotes, but I watched a YouTube video of him a couple of years ago. That sounded weird. It wasn't a YouTube video of him. It was him doing an interview that was helping pay. What's up is rod? Rod doing an unbiased bit here. Watching can you imagine? Can you imagine him like doing having a selfie stick? Right. Loobox coming. I would love to see him nowadays. Like, his commentary on us would be so past his daughter is still alive. But what I was going to say is I watched a video on YouTube of him where he was talking about censorship. And how CBS had censored the writers and what they were trying to get away. With in a lot of the times. Of course, his commentary was on on people of Cohen the treatment of people of color in marginalized groups in general, where they would end up having to make them like an alien or a monster or something for you to like feel for them because they weren't they weren't able to to make them people of color, and he actually says that you eventually start to center yourself where you're not even writing those stories. So if you already know it it's kind of fascinating like the brain will just start to censor and not even create those stories anymore. It was a really fascinating interview and will link it. But yet he ended up volunteering at WNYC in New York as an actor and writer in the summer of nineteen forty six. And then the next year he worked at a station has a pain intern in Antioch work study program. And then took a couple of odd jobs and other radio stations in New York and Ohio. He said, I learned time writing for medium that is measured in seconds. He also worked at the Antioch broadcasting systems radio workshop and was managing the station within a couple of years. Dan, leno. He's moving up moving. He was a hard worker. He wrote and directed the programs and active in them as well. This is kind of fascinating. So I actually read the twilight zone companion highly recommended there's a couple of different twilight zone books out there. Have you read that one mellow? Oh, I think you would like it. There's so much behind the scenes for each they go through each episode. So actually got it on audible, and I would listen to it when I would clean and drive and stuff, but it's the behind the scenes of like how did this get made?.
