Should Church and Politics Mix?

"Sometimes the accusation against Christians who are politically savvy and culturally involved is that you guys are crossing the line and, you know, keep church in the church. Keep hops out of the church. And you guys shouldn't mix the two. I mean, you know, we had candidate junkin came by last Sunday. And, you know, we welcomed him the sheriff was here. And it was faith in blue week. And I brought him up and honored him. And the sheriff's Facebook page lit up because people said, how dare he go into a church? He's an elected official, and the separation of church and state. Speak to that nonsense. Yeah. Sure. I injected my opinion there. No. No, I'm sorry. You let the questioner Gary, how are you? You love me in the right direction. So yeah, let's start with this. First of all, any Christian that says, you should not comment on politics. You shouldn't care what happens in government. They got to get a pair of scissors and cut out a lot of parts of their Bible. They have to cut out the parts of the Bible where God's people were trying to influence their secular government for his purpose. How about Esther, mordecai? Jeremiah. Joseph, just to name a few. Daniel that we're trying to influence secular government for God's purpose. It's all throughout the Old Testament that the people of God were trying to be counselors to the king.

Why the US Constitution Is More Relevant Than Ever Before

"The history of the 1920s 30s and 40s, they say, oh, it's repeating itself. But why? Because human nature doesn't change. That's why. We know this. Anyone who reads the Bible and gets past genesis three realizes that we are broken by nature. You don't have to overly complicate this. But the left in this country, they believe human nature is malleable. It is changeable. We believe that there is a default coding within of who we are as human beings as broken, sinful, nasty, brutish, short. Now this is why the constitution is just as relevant. In fact, more relevant today than it was in the 1780s. And there's an accusation that is commonly thrown at the founding fathers. Oh, what are you going to honor a document? That's 240 years old. And now we as Christians should take offense to this, because you know what they're going to say next. What are you reading a book that's 2000 years old? Now why should we honor old things? What those old things are full of wisdom and they are true, it's because the constitution was not written for the time. It was written to stand the test of time. Because it was an observation of how human beings are in their state of nature. And so then we can all of a sudden say, oh, how we're tyrants. How do they operate? Well, they do a couple of things Aristotle said there is an amazing book in book 5 of the politics of Aristotle, 2500 years ago. Book 5 chapter ten, he said tyrants make people unfamiliar to one another. I wonder what they did in the last year to make us unfamiliar to one another. They keep the schools in gymnasiums closed. 2500 years ago, he wrote this. Because it is the habit of a tyrant to make sure that you distrust your fellow citizen that dialog communication and community disappears. And one person is able to have a say over the collective. Now why is that justice true today as it was 2500 years ago? Because not only are we able to say how human nature was 2500 years ago, but we know how dictators tyrants, tsars and Caesars operate. They try to make you distrust your

Charlie Describes His Journey of Fighting for Liberty Through Faith

"Look, we're all in the fight for liberty and liberty is not man's idea. It's God's idea. And we as Christians, we are, we are called to do more. And I gave my life to Christ, and I was in 5th grade. Sony 5th graders out there. I encourage you to give your life to Christ. All right, there you go. Good year. That was the year 2005 when I was in 5th grade, by the way. And it was a good year. Are you serious? Yeah, that's right. Oh man. And I say it was the most important in my life when you enter into God's eternal family. And you answer into the kingdom of God. As you get older, that means more and more to you. And you realize, really, what grace is and what your relationship with Jesus Christ is. And I was raised in a Bible believing church in the suburbs of Chicago. And I was always taught that we as Christians in the church should never comment on what's happening in the news. Never comments on what's happening outside of the walls of the church. We just do the gospel. You know, we try to increase our budget, build bigger buildings and do more baptisms. That's it. And don't question it. And I bought into it. And as I started turning point USA, I always felt that had to be outside of the church, never talk about the church. And then I met my now pastor rob McCoy, who's an amazing American a great man. And calvary chapel Thousand Oaks, California. So Charlie, you're looking at this wrong. He said, you're trying to set the captives free. You're trying to fight for liberty and try to make people live virtuous and moralize. You're trying to fight for a constitutional republic that is a gift from God and try to motivate God's church to do more in that regard. And he made a very compelling argument on how the American church founded this country. How the American church was the leading force for defeating communism internationally and also some of the Marxist forces here domestically in the 1950s and 60s. And so he was kind enough to have me speak at his church, and then I went and spoke at Jack hibb's church, another great American and dear friend of mine. And I thought to myself, wow, what if the church really stood up and proclaimed with courage the way that Jesus told us to in a time where everything seems to be falling apart, the church can be the leader at

"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir.

Satan Tries to Get You Through Your Vows

"Satan tries to get you through your vows. I will never do, I will never take another drink again. Don't say that. You are not capable of doing that. The self control is a fruit of the spirit, says it very clearly in the scriptures. Instead, you say, only thanks to the power of Jesus Christ, would I ever not be able to take another drink again? That is a completely different thing than saying, I alone can take on the evil and the devices of Satan, completely and totally different. And Jesus said this. He said, do not do not make earthly vows. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. As soon as you take a vow, what is Satan? He's a taunter. He's able to taunt you with your own vow, right? You said you would never do this again. Come on, let's see how strong you are. All of a sudden it's held over your head. Instead, you should say, I am not enough. Jesus take my place and fight the spiritual battle for me. Please Jesus come into my life. And that's surrender. That true that true unconditional admission that you can not fight that spiritual battle is incredibly liberating. And Jesus will come in and will win that battle. But here's the other, the second way is that Satan takes hold when we are disobedient, especially in terms of the flesh. Satan is a master of being able to capture us when we engage in repetitive intentional fleshly sin. We all know what that is. I don't need to overemphasize that. You know what that is. It's when we decide that things that feel good that we know that are not good for us, especially in the sexual domain, that's where Satan is licking his chops and he knows he's got you. He knows that's where human beings are in some ways at their weakest. This is why it says in the New Testament, flee from sexual immorality, and it goes on to say that Satan prowls the earth's first Peter prowls the earth like a lion looking for those to devour. It's a pretty profound statement,

Students Are Experiencing a Crisis of Purpose

"My day job is to go to college campuses so you don't have to and the spread, the message of truth and of liberty and every message I give, I make sure that I tell young people the importance of ultimate purpose. And I don't know if you noticed this, you probably have, but for many students across the country right now, they are experiencing a crisis of purpose. In fact, I was in Minnesota in Mankato and I had some students come up and they say basically what is the point of existence? There is no God. There is no truth. And I realized in a very profound way that Satan, who is real, by the way, and the churches and talk about Satan enough. And we'll talk about Satan a little bit. That'll be not the most uplifting part of my message. Actually, it's very uplifting because we win against Satan. Thanks to Jesus. So there actually is kind of uplifting. Just a matter of how you frame it, Satan has done a very good job of leading us to believe that there's nothing to believe in. And we've seen that over the last year and a half and kind of in my job, I talk about a lot of different things, but I'm trying to bring people to ultimate purpose, and the ultimate purpose is Jesus

Tolerance and Apathy Are Defining Characteristics of a Dying Society

"Tolerance. You guys have those signs up anywhere on campus. We need a tolerate things. No not no bailers, thankfully not as following as other places. Should we tolerate evil? That's an interesting question, right? And some people say yes, some people say no. And it depends what your kind of idea of tolerance is, right? And what does that actually mean Aristotle, who's the man? Hope you guys are studying Aristotle. Maybe maybe not. Okay. We'll get this a little bit, yes. A couple of people could praise God. Aristotle said that tolerance and apathy are defining characteristics of a dying society. Now, what did he mean by that? Did he mean that you should be intolerance? Because that's what they call us all the time though. What he meant is when all of a sudden people stop caring about bad things happening around them. That's what he meant. That he was using them as synonyms, tolerance and apathy. And I think this happens far too often. And so since I've been I haven't been controversial enough tonight, so I have to dive right into it. So last week, I was doing my podcast and my radio show. And I said, you know, the left in this country wants people to live in a version of sexual anarchy. People like, what is that? That sounds like a band. Like, it's actually a great band name by the way. Hasn't been taken yet. If anyone has a band, it actually might be it's like the Sex Pistols. It's like sexual anarchy. No, it's very simple, which is that it's this 1960s live. That's antibiotic antichristian anti natural law to do whatever feels good. To indulge in a flash to do every want to do when you want to do it however you want to do it. That doesn't make people free. You will live in a state of anarchy spiritually and personally if you do that. And it's become wildly unpopular to say this out loud, which is why are we having so many issues with students and young people when it comes to this sort of issue is that I don't think we've ever been, I don't think we've been honest enough by saying people that liberty is not doing what you want to do whenever you want to do it. Liberty is doing what you ought to do. And from a Christian biblical perspective, it means standing up and having hopefully the clarity. So you know what? You should reject hookup culture that you should save yourself for one person, loyally marry them and stay in a single relationship with them and say that this is how the Bible wants us to live, and you will be more free because

When We Make Decisions Based on Diversity Instead of Competency, America Suffers

"That when we start to organize society, or when we start to make decisions based on things that people can not change versus on things they can change such as diversity or skin color, not competency and excellence, then all of a sudden you're going to start to see society suffer because of it. And a great example of this is what happened in Afghanistan, which I think we've forgot about way too quickly. What happened in Afghanistan was a publican international humiliation where we gave $85 billion to the Taliban. We gave up the Bagram air base. The sacrifices of so many military members went for not. And let me be very clear. I was all for ending the war in Afghanistan. But if all of a sudden I said, hey, you know, you're the kidney that gets removed. You take out a pocket knife and you start to do, like, that's not a good idea, okay? Go to a professional who knows what they're doing. There's a good way and a bad way to do something that needs to be done. And getting out of Afghanistan, Robinson, hey, let's arm the enemy, give the embassy up, not patrol the air base, Americans are stranded for months on end, give China the upper hand with the entire evacuation, give up the strategic air base. And the reason in the opinion of, I think anyone looks at it objectively, is that the head of the United States military, Mark milley along with Lloyd Austin and Joe Biden, if you consider him to be the head of anything, which is, which is, they were testifying in front of Congress back in June, saying that the existential threat to America was white rage, and that we're not going to apologize for implementing critical race theory diversity equity inclusion or this sort of new history into the military. Into the military of all places. The military that by definition, every person here should want the military to be a place where competency ranks that you don't land the plane, your national security is at risk. You're not able to eliminate the enemy, your national security is at risk. Should all of a sudden, we'd be worrying about these arbitrary academic exercises of diversity equity inclusion or saying, hey, we have the greatest fighting force in the history of the world, probably not worth messing that up for some sort of esoteric abstract academic

The Death of George Floyd Literally Set the Country on Fire

"The death of George Floyd literally set the country on fire. And immediately, it was kind of confirmation bias of the narrative that we were always told, which is that law enforcement police officers are going and they're walking the streets, trying to find black people. They're literally killing them without any sort of due process whatsoever. The numbers don't bear this out at all. I'm happy to get into that 30 unarmed black people were killed by police officers in 2018, 2019 combined. Out of that, some of them tried to run over police officers their car, grabbing weapons, the police officers, and out of 335 million police interactions, you have 30 unarmed black people in just two years. All of a sudden you're like, is that really worth redesigning American society around that? That would be foolish and imprudent. We decided to do it anyway. $2 billion of damages and all of a sudden, every major corporation stemming from what's happening in college campus is we decided to all of a sudden embrace this that we're systemically racist. We're a white supremacist country, and if you dare disagree with us, we will character assassinate, you mock you ridicule you because you're a racist, sit down and shut up. And all of a sudden people started to read the literature, moms and dads are like wait a second, you're trying to tell my 8 year old that he's a racist just because of the color of your skin, like not so fast. Started to show up in school board meetings, loud and county, Virginia, big center, that. And so now where we are today in October 2021, actually critical race theory has a negative view by a majority Americans. Not overwhelming about 56% of Americans say, wait a second. This is a little bit too radical for me. You know, I can understand that if you want to have a conversation about some of these things, but all of a sudden saying that we need to have white privilege walks, and we have segregated graduation ceremonies.

Our Faith Touches Everything

"The Germans bought into this stupid idea. They thought, hey, we're German, which means we're Lutheran, which means Luther invented Christianity as far as we're concerned. He invented this idea of grace, grace means I don't have to do anything, and that's that. And of course, Bonham wrote about cheap grace and the idea that if you don't really understand grace, you treat it like nothing. You know, you treat what God has done for you like nothing, which means you don't get it, which means you don't believe which means forget about grace. There's no grace because you have an appropriate degree. I really believe for other reasons the church in America today has done the same thing. I think there are different reasons, but there are tons of people who've excoriated people like me and Frank and said, you've made an idol of politics. You've made an idol of Donald Trump. You know, ridiculous things. And the point is no, we just believe that our faith touches everything. It's not some little parochial religious thing that stays in the corner, like the official church is doing China. It's something that has to come out of the church and live everywhere. We have a free exercise of religion, freedom to do that. So if you keep it in this little religious theological corner, then it's phony. It's abbreviated faith. If you don't live it out in the school, on the workplace, on the radio, on the whatever it is, if you don't do that, you don't really believe it. Your phony. So when people talk about, I just want to preach the gospel. I don't want to be I don't want to be political. We think that's just stupid. That makes no sense. Because if you're a Jew in a boxcar going to Treblinka or Auschwitz, you think, you know, I would love it if there was some Christians out there on the other side of this boxcar who believed what they said and would get political and stand up against the system that is sending me my family to death. That means getting political.

Your Theology Is Ultimately Everything

"Your theology is ultimately everything. But even the word theology is just another word for what do you believe about anything? Because theology, we kind of act like there's this discipline of theology. What we're really talking about is just reality. Reality doesn't matter what you call it. Thinking about truth is not theological, it's just thinking about truth. So it kind of theological aspects. But the point is that different cultures parse these things different ways. And the Germans basically took their eye off the ball in the same way that Americans are taking their eye off the ball. And what I mean by that is that if you really understand freedom, and if you understand the scriptures, you know that you have to fight for what is right and true, you have to live your faith out and sometimes that means literally losing your head being killed being tortured, being ostracized that you have to live your faith out. And it seems to me that the first parallel between the Germans of the 30s and America today is that the Christians in particular and how you define Christians is the whole thing because I've said to Jewish friends like Dennis said, most Christians are not Christians they're gentiles. And to be really be a Christian is another thing. But even Christians in America, it's sickening for me to see, like evangelical Christians have they've made a philosophical theological error. They somehow have come to believe kind of what the Germans believed that you don't have to do anything. Luther said, it's all about grace, right? Well, you all know that these things can become religious bromides and cliches. They become meaningless. How can it be all about grace these who I don't have to do anything? We're not talking about Salvation. We know that you can't do anything to save yourself. God saves you utterly 100%. However, if you're saved by God, there will be fruit, and you'll do all kinds of stuff. And if you don't do all that kind of stuff, you didn't get saved.

What Happened When Eric 'Came Out' as a Trump Supporter

"Because when I wrote the bonhoeffer book, so many people came to love me who then once I came out of the closet as believing Trump was better than Hillary Clinton as a candidate is pretty crazy stuff. When I came out on that, these people thought, I get emails now a little bit less often, but I was getting emails like almost every day. Have you lost your mind? Didn't you read your own bonhoff for book? Don't you see, you know, effectively that Hitler, I mean, that's a Trump is Hitler two. Don't you get it? He's an authoritarian monster. You know, and I realized that it's almost funny because it's precisely the opposite. It's the left that has taken on the mantle of Hitler. Has anybody referred to Hitler as having a mantle before? The biblical, it's an anti mantle sure. But the point is the point is that the parallels are stark. But even a number of years ago, even I don't know, 7 years ago, 8 years ago, people would say, how did this happen in Nazi Germany? How did that happen? And I said, it happened exactly like it's happening here now. That's how it happened. So the idea that I mean, of course, if you have a racist view of Germans, it's very easy to say how it happened. The Germans are uniquely evil. But if you believe that you're as bad as the Germans who hated the Jews as being uniquely evil, we all know, as Dennis just said that it's not a racial issue.

How long have you been pastoring. where did you grow up. I grew up here in hometown. A profit not without honor but in his own country led jesus said but it was a tiny little five thousand person town and then it's just exploded. We're kind of like the last bedroom community here in nashville came back home in two thousand and six so fifteen years ago. I started the church from from scratch. And now we're in a three thousand seat tenant and people just keep showing up because somebody saying something. And god's given us a voice to the nation so thank god for it well. This is what. I have noticed that. Those pastors who've been particularly heroic and bold their churches have exploded. Because there's a there's a hunger for this out there even among nonbelievers or among people that they don't believe it. But i don't really go to church. People are really hungry for this. So i find it kind of funny that the free market sometimes does really wonderful things I mean it you know if you have a virtuous population they will choose virtuous and good things and that seems to be what's happening. We know that our friends in california jack hibs and others their churches have gone up. The numbers have gone up speaking a cornerstone chapel in virginia.

Which probably disappointed you in lives but Autho music and what they didn't california. Interestingly enough is chuck taught the bible verse by verse chapter chapter book by book but he stayed away from politics because in sixty eight when he started it Martin luther king reverend dr martin luther king junior have been shot. Bobby kennedy had been shot. Sixty three jake kidman shot. Then you had the meantime askar the offensive. And all these young people who had been seeking hope and change had checked out of the church and explored eastern religions and drug use and they they came back disillusioned because all their political heroes were dead and chuck avoided politics but he taught he taught the the way to salvation and grew ten thousand percent in fifty.

Because we didn't engage in the public square the matthew sixteen we avoided that and now california no longer has a fifth largest gdp. We have the six maybe seven.

"One of my favorite scriptures in the entire bible is when jesus says and it was kind of a mic drop moment the bible says do not put your lord your gods at the test my favorite pieces of scripture. Satan hates to books more than any other books of the bible. More than its genesis and revelation. Why because genesis tells us nature and revelers revelation tells you how it's going to end satan getting thrown into the pit of fire. All of us must realize that as you get into this fight that you're gonna come across doubt cynicism all of a sudden deaths in yourself all of you are prone targets for satan to try to come after you. I don't talk too much on this. But i could just riff on a little bit more three ways that satan and tries to attack you through your environment the earthly vows and through certain flesh. Leeson's your environment who you hanging around or you're on people that are filled with the spirit optimism that actually wanna to pursue righteousness or people that are negative. People are worried about earthly and worldly things. You are the combination of the people you spend the most time with the five people you spend the most time with. That is who you are number two earthly vows. Jesus says very clearly that you do not make vows let your yes. Be yes in your. Nobody knows why is because if you try to make a valid i will never drink again all of a sudden satan knows exactly what is against you. What's the proper way to say it. Only thanks to the grace and mercy and power of jesus. Christ will never take another drink again. Let jesus fight the spiritual war for you. And then finally flush flash and sends it says varies a now call called satan. It's theologians are divided on this. The god of this world. Jesus never said that he said that satan is the prince of this world that we are in enemy occupied territory and guess what we have to launch a sabotage campaign against. Satan's dominance here in this world. What does that look like being salt and light and it says in romans to love what is good and hate what is evil and so i love all those verses by my favorite of all of it is in the book of titus from that mr jude. Book of jude. Where even the archangel michael himself when he goes to fight satan himself you know what he says lord rebuke you.

This Is How US Schools Should Correctly Teach History

"Ten or twelve schools. I would trust to teach history correctly. And there's a specific way that we have not teaching history and here's how it works. The way history is taught in most schools. Is that if it wasn't written in your lifetime. it's not a good idea so anything that wasn't written your lifetime. We will read from a negative lens whereas the more strauss seen way of reading texts or the classicist way of reading texts is that you must read it in the time and the context and the conditions of the author's time and this biblical right so in genesis six says that noah was a good man and a righteous man amongst the people of his generation. You're like why does it say that no is a good man amongst the people. This generation doesn't say that no was a good man says that if you compare them to his contemporaries. He's a good man. But maybe you compared noah to joseph. He wasn't that great of a man. The point is that the bible is telling us in genesis. Six that the correct way of you. History is in the time in the context of how people lived in when they lived

And Yeah, we have a vaccine. What would that mean to us? Why would we care well for the health of our country, but there's a lot of things that can can go along with it financially. We're going to talk about Damon's last class of the year. I know everybody's so said if you didn't get in His last class that started on Thursday. I don't know what to tell you because you're gonna have to wait. But however, I will. I will tell you a little bit. We do still have one Wednesday. Lunchtime drive through. So we do the Wednesday webinars. That last one for the year. So on my list, these guys say I'd probably have too much on the list. That's that's the problem. But the last Wednesday lunchtime drive through from noon to 12 30 12 12 30 right in the middle of the afternoon is this Wednesday? So what's that date needs to be a protest? Y'all should protest that because that is one of your most successful things. Everybody loves drive through Wednesday's during lunch from 12 to 12. Well, then maybe I should extend it. I think you know what I think what I'll do. I'll do this on the because we've got a regular group of about 40 people that come onto that every Wednesday this past Wednesday, we did all about the daily success habits of millionaires. And so it was very well attended. So I'm gonna ask all the people if you do you want to keep us going to the end of the year? Well, we're gonna talk about all of those things. But let's first talk about the biggest story of this past week. That is a pharmaceutical company. Fizer announced that early testing of its cove it next 19 vaccine shows that it could be more than 90% effective. Now I want to stress could there's a big word in there could that there are still more steps to be taken, You know, test to be run. You know, you've heard of trials again and again before formal FDA. Would be approving. For mass production. Now it is exciting. And it was certainly music to the ears of all markets. Because it was we were up with 3% Damon 33 to 43 point depending on the index you were looking at. Yeah. So you know, that was on Monday. So you know, I was out of town. And when I and I even heard it. I mean, it was trending everywhere that visor came out and so you know, Kudos to the president. Let's all say thank you, President Trump. He declared Warp speed on March 15th because he found out that trials take seven universe telling him seven years 10 years. He talked about some of the back saints and he says, What would a second he goes? I'm not talking about today he goes. I want this yesterday, So they announced warp speed and and that is the whole world started working on a virus honestly, because everybody wanted be the first and that's great to have competition, Everyone every every pharmaceutical company wanted me the first Come out with this vaccine because it is so important, you know, for the world, not just our country now. Of course we care about America First, however, it is the world needs this vaccine. So does this mean covered? 19 will soon be gone. Like. Oh, we got this announced who we got a vaccine. So is it just gonna be gone? Probably not soon. However, it does get us thinking about the impact I truly viable vaccine will have on all of us, not just financially but socially and really psychologically, because this has taken a real psychological Hole on everybody's mental. So we need to talk about you know what that truly means. You know to us financially. Well, I mean, I think you know that this funny into this psychological thing. I mean, it's documented. Oh, yeah, the mental stress that it's put on people the anxiety people have had, And that really comes so from a financial standpoint, Yeah, obviously, if we get a vaccine, and it's truly viable, the market's gonna react well, right. We already saw that We got a little taste of that, okay. The market was up, the economy will begin to recover because it will open up again. There's all this pent up demand, and I met with many clients this past week and I told them if this really does happen. And then other companies start to produce theirs. You're going to see an economic boom. At least for 2021 the likes of which we haven't seen since right after World War two. You have all this pent up demand. So, however, they're still gonna be volatility and, well, you know, we always preface it with yes, you know, because this is what's being projected this This is what we know. However, it's still gonna be volatile. You know, Let's say the vaccine comes out and we get it distributed and then they say somebody gets dies of it. You know there's all kinds of things that are going to affect the market. So just be prepared. That's why I've said my whole life. Whatever happens in crazy land out there. You cannot control this. So what you can control is what you do inside your portfolio with.

You can't do it yourself. Just like you go work on your own car. How's that working for you? You can repair your own house. Yeah, I think she call a plumber. You could even cut your own hair, especially turned this country. We've seen some of those disaster. We have seen some of those disasters. The point is, if you decide to do it yourself You are going to have to live with those results. Most of the time when we have people come in. It's like It's like taking their accounting. All these pieces of paper and a paper bag and go and fix this. So we've we've seen it all around here. And believe me, we do not judge. We're here to help. And you can also hire someone who truly knows what they're doing to make sure that it's done right. That you avoid some of those minefields and so that you don't have to, You know, do it alone. Like every other profession and all your professional relationships that you have a financial adviser could be a life long guide. Yes, they're a guide. To making well informed choices to helping you. So that you make the most important choices in your life because there's so many choices out there that you make those lifelong decisions correctly. They give you your choices, and we're going to share some stories of people that came to us after They had taken and made some choices and we had to share with them. There's no do overs, but we're going to share with you how we can best manage this. The decisions you've already made. And I said, can help you clarify goals develop a plan and, most importantly, stay disciplined. That's especially important, volatile years like this people really get scared, and they d'oh So what we're gonna do today, So stay with us. This whole show its that important what you should look for in an advisor, how your advisor can and true value and we're gonna give you some numbers. This measured in dollars. The things you're adviser should do that go beyond investments that most don't and that that topic right there. I'm going to share with you. Her name is Cathy and a story that she told me that honestly broke my heart. But it's fixable. Unless segment we're going to talk about the one key thing your advisor can do to protect you from all harm. So you've gotta stating for that as well. So, David. What? Let's start with you. What do you believe is one of the most important things that investors should look. Foreign retiree Should look for business owner should look for You know, divorces should look for in an advisor. Well, anybody can call themselves financial advisor. There you go. That's the first thing you need to know. There are a lot of people out there and they've got licenses and they've got some experience Things like that. But It doesn't really take much to call yourself quote a financial advisor. You can hang out a shingle I was going to say. I mean, I have hurt people Tell me their real estate broker is their financial advice. I am like you'll hear. Yeah, you'll hear that someone who works in Who's a loan officer in the bank. Gonna financial advisor. CPS will sometimes call themselves financial advisor Now it takes a lot to get a CPA license, okay? But the point All of this is that while there are many different people who call themselves financial advisors, not all financial advisors or what we call a fiduciary, all right, so that's the first thing that you really want to look out for in a fiduciary. And an advisor who is held to a fiduciary standard like investment advisors like Victoria and I are Those are required to keep your best interests ahead of their own and ahead of anybody else's. When they're working on company. They worked. That's right. When they're working with you and your money and your family and your life, they must keep your interests first. They are legally as well as morally obligated. To do that, And most people just take that for granted, Damon and that's the problem. You just assume I assume I have seen what I go by a car. When I tell somebody. This is what I'm looking for, And this is how I want to use this car. They're not going to sell me a truck. Another going to sell me at two door sports car that you know this is going to get you to Dallas and back. And here's the radio and this is how it works. You got a condition. I don't need to be hauling stuff around. I have friends for that. I know everybody was truck. But don't try to sell me a truck. Well, just because you may get a bonus for selling that truck, and I've got a perfect story for that. So Holly reached out to us a friend of hers. Who knows us? Referred her to us and said, Hey, you need to call these guys because what happened was she had this for a one k about $30,000. Which is a lot of my for her, and it was put into an insurance product. So I assumed, you know, I was taking a look at this. And she just one of the second opinion will come to find out what she really wanted was to keep that money invested in the stock market, and I had to tell Young isn't yes, she's in her thirties. I sound like I had to tell her. Well, Holly, if that was your goal. The person, the adviser who is a financial adviser, licensed to sell insurance. That individual clearly did not pay attention to what it was. You were trying to do, because what they have you in is an index Tinu iti. We use those all the time. They're great strategies. For the client who wants total protection. You told this person I want investment and growth in the stock market. This strategy is not appropriate for that. It was pretty clear to me that this person at the best, very best, just misunderstood at the worst was meeting their own interest, which was a commission. So you've got to be careful. And you want a fiduciary. Exactly. You also want someone who is not limited to one area. Okay, So when someone says I'm a financial advisor, and then you start asking them questions you find out all they do is insurance or all they do is investing in the stock market, or all they do is Real estate, okay by themselves, those air good things tohave, But you want an advisor who can branch out into all those areas, someone who is well rounded and who can work with you and all those areas you wanted. An advisor who can play in all of the sandbox is not just one. That's true diamond. Yeah, it expand on that. Someone who understands that It's not good, or, you know, versus bad financial strategies aren't inherently good or bad, Just like you pointed out. We used indexed annuities all day long. We've got.

"To like, I think of Jason, who owned a great deal. Of Apple, and what we did is we turned around and, you know, set up a strategic plan to reduce his position. Now there's nothing wrong with Apple. He just has had it so long and inherited so much more from his parents that he has a tremendous amount he and we had to decide how much tax of you willing to pay. And how can we manage this so that we can reduce your tax burden yet also balance your portfolio because he knew one bad thing goes wrong An apple. It could wreck his entire portfolio, and that's when harvesting gains or losses, whatever it might be. Can be to your benefit simply because you have an over concentrated position. Whether it's one stock, you know, I think of Chuck. He was over the concentrated in Google. We have slowly whittled that down right over the years, just saying with Apple. We also have clients that have too much and Exxon. Maybe they worked for an old company, and they got a lot of stock so they can be heavy. So you do have to have a plan. In order to make sure that you are diversified and you get out of those heavy positions because one bad news report one bad accident, something life's gonna happen. So you want to get you get yourself in a good position Absolute, especially when you retire because you don't have as much time to make a correction if you're in your twenties or thirties. It's not as bad when you're in your sixties or seventies and Decide to start taking income. You need to be sure that you're not heavily concentrated in any one position. And this is especially true. You know, part of the reason we talk all the time about That we work with people that have at least half a million dollars will. First of all, it's because we worked with millionaires and aspiring millionaires and all of you are in one of those categories. You should be. If you're not a millionaire now, you should at least be an aspiring millionaire. But once you get to that level of assets, you can graduate beyond mutual funds and use individual stocks and bonds. It's a lot easier to harvest losses. When you have individual securities, you can pick and choose the ones you want. That's not really possible with mutual funds. You either sell your shares of the fund or you don't exact And so this is and this much harder because you have to have a whole long term strategy if you sell out of one. You know, mutual funds. Then you gotta think about the capital gains or losses and, you know, and what you going to replace it with? And what is it going to cost you to replace it? The cost has got to be calculated in so yeah. We discussed these concepts, the tax laws harvesting obviously the income generation. It's the most important aspect of our rocky retirement courses. The flagship program of Chapel would university are educational branch. And we actually have another class coming up here in just a couple of weeks. So you do have time to get enrolled. It's going to be Thursday's October 22nd and 29. So it's two nights, four hours of education's with two hours each night from 6 30. 8 30 in the month of October. It's totally free to enroll. Ordinarily, we charge you $50. But this year has been well, Let's just say we'll all be glad to see.

You gotta pay for it right? Get your clothes dry clean. There's value there. You gotta pay for it. So, yeah, you're going to pay for an advisor. But what you're going to get out of that? Well. There was a study done by Russell Investments in 2017. So not that long ago, and it found that guidance from an advisor can add Victoria's Muchas too. Percent and depend on what study looked like. This was just Russell Vanguard did a study and I talked about 3% of value. So you know, we thought, Well, let's go with lower, you know, let's be conservative here. We always that's right so it can add as much as 2% of your investment performance over time. And they broke this down Victorian two different components that an advisor can give to you. So, for example, developing a financial plan. That actually adds approximately 0.5% value. So I think of our clients Bobby and Kendall there young clients. They're young family. They've got young Children. They're both still working. And you know, honestly, at the time, they didn't have enough money really, to meet our investment minimums, But what they needed was a plan that showed them. Here's how much we should set aside for college. Here's what we should be thinking about in terms of contributing to our fora. One kills. That's right, so that Was what they needed, OK? Then they can oversee your investments. They do due diligence. This is your advisor due diligence to figure out Which strategy should we go with? Allocating your assets. What's the mixture of stocks to bonds re balancing? Should we change this? That sort of thing? That kind of work? Victoria can add anywhere from a quarter percent two a little over half a percent in value. I think of Terry and Liz Terry's getting ready to retire. And these are our clients retire at the end of this year. One of the things that we did when we first started their accounts was it was kind of middle of the road. Everything was just about a moderate, But now we're talking about Let's take Let's re balance. Terry is going to retire. Let's make his a little more conservative. Liz is still gonna work for four years. Let's make her money a little more aggressive, and that way you've got hot and cold running together. And it balances each other out. So that's what we talk about Re balancing on advisor.

"All. But this is do share. She's become a great advocate and friend of chapel. Would you know, we got together she's going to have a ton of other income coming from oil royalties and things like that. She doesn't need required. Distributions. So why would we take that money and be taxed on it? So instead, she wants to bless her church and other charities that she supports. We're going to send those are MD's charity. Yeah. That's right. And it counts. It counts as you taking your required distribution. You don't wanna miss that? Because you're going to be penalized percent. Don't take it. So taking it increase in your income. Why would you do that? When when the strategy is simply give it because you're gonna give at the end of the year. Anyway, it's just how you do it. The execution is really what it is. So it counts as your armed. But it does not count as taxable income. Right. And then of course, there's a Q lack you can always set up accu- lack that q lack is at two hundred thirty dollars hundred thirty thousand dollars, you can set aside in twenty eighteen and I said at defer it to age eighty five so acute like is another nice little longevity annuity, and it's it's a strategy to use. You can also withdraw money from a tax free rock because distributions from a rock. Don't doesn't matter. This is tax free money to you. The reason you wanna use those Roth accounts because their tax free will if they're. Tax free than they're not counted in that formula talked about that income number so distributions from Roth accounts don't count towards taxing your social security under tax under current law. You could conceivably set up an income plan that his only distributions from Roth and social security, you could conceivably never pay taxes again true analyst, James laws. But yeah, and we always have to say that under the current tax laws that we have right now, be careful with your income investment. So if you don't need that income look at moving from income generation to growth, you can also put your tax dollars. You know, tax moves into perspective if it's just impossible to get below that threshold, then don't worry about social security, tax and focus on tax efficiency. Elsewhere. So you say there's all these things to look at it. When you do it every day. It's very it really is very simple because it's it's easy to identify because our certain mistakes that people continuously make that you. I look at those and go, okay. We if we've done that if we've taken Roth money we've done that. If we make sure we stay below the threshold if we're taking non-qualified money versus qualified money check. If we're giving our MDC so there's four or five really key things to look at on for everyone to see how we can be more tax efficient. And there's been study after study that shows that tax efficiency is one of the most important things in wealth management. Once you get to the distribution stage. Are we call distribution size? But that's really retirement taking that income. Well, and as you can hear, ladies and gentlemen, this is a lot to manage on your own. And if you don't know what you're doing. You're probably gonna end up making a major mistake headache. Headache, probably going to get much sleep. Because you don't know where your income is coming from you don't know if it's being tax efficient. You don't know how to generate income this just all highlights. The fact that retiring successfully they today doesn't happen by accident. And you may claim your social security at the wrong time, you may not be tax efficient. You may not know if you're gonna have half a million dollars sitting around to pay for long term care expenses. If you don't have long term care insurance. You you won't know you're going to run out of money, and you speaking of that right now, I'm just gonna interject I hope you'll stay with us through the next segment because I'm gonna tell you about a got his biggest problem a to you here. We have one he's got a big major problem. I can't wait to tell you what it is. Because it's in the million enjoy hearing about other people's. I wish I had this. No, I want you. Everybody wants the problem that he is. But the point is here, Victoria that you need a plan and that plan is an income plan. Right. You know, many other radio listeners Damon is, you know, like, the gentleman I'm going to talk about the next segment have taken advantage of this opportunity for customize income plan and risk analysis. It's the only way, you know. And you know, what all I care about is knowing that I have done everything I can do to be tax efficient and get the most income I can at the lowest risk possible.

You'll be leaving work for good just done go watch grass grow either you will retire because you want to or because you. You have to or because you're laid off like all those people at Devon. That's what's happening. This is the real world you need to be prepared for the real world. But regardless of the reason why you retire or why you get laid off at some point. There is something very important decisions that you're going to have to make. What am I going to do with that 4._0._1._K or other retirement account? Can you roll over a lump sum from your pension is that even an option you really need to know? We're gonna talk to you about a couple of cases that have come in recently and people really don't know. And it's something that you really need to know long before this happened now when will you defer compensation plan payments begin you need to know that do you need them immediately. Do you have a cash low for a year there certain things that you've got an what are your options? Guess what for your stock grants? This is very important particularly in our region of the country with so many oil and gas companies very important is how will you replace your healthcare insurance? We're working with some clients right now on long term care and on their Medicare because when are you Medicare eligible it depends? Okay. Now, the most important thing. As far as I'm concerned, guess what? It's about planning. So today, we're gonna talk about all kinds of things that you really need to do to decide. And then is how should I prepare for retirement and well in advance, you know, what to do with your 4._0._1._K and other any other kind of retirement accounts? Just like I said, what should you do win applying for social security and Medicare? You gotta need to know these things because on some of them there's a very short window of opportunity how to handle inherited accounts when you lose a spouse. So these are some of the things we're going to be sharing with you today. The time to begin thinking about all of these things is not the day you retire. You really should always be planning for the future in what if what if this happens? What if that happens have a plan in place? I always talk about it. You know, I have a plan a plan b c d e f g if necessary so you're not blindsided. So a few years before retirement to you need to know what you need to be planning for. So that's what we're going to share with you today. So where do we start where do I let me just say I'm disappointed. You only go down to plan. H j k and hell, yeah. There's a lot more out there.

And that's where we can determine how best we can help very simple there. And it's very simple. And it should be simple. We try to make everything is easy as possible because we don't take ourselves seriously diamond. But we take our business very seriously. People have always told me that. Oh, victoria. I just love the fact that, you know, your the way you talk to us as in plain English, and you wrote a book, and plain English because the point is if we didn't do that, it would not be helpful.

Well, you know, twenty nine in two twenty eighteen gave us a lot of economic headlines. There's a lot of headlines period and two thousand nineteen we're going to have a lot of headlines, but don't know what they're going to be right now. But now you see Damon best. What makes it so we don't know a weekend show, we can make some predictions, and we know they're going to be some key things that we're going to be following this year. So here's some of the top financial headlines that we're going to be paying attention to in two thousand nineteen and you probably are going to as well number one Federal Reserve that was the big topic of conversation, especially at the end of the year. You know, there's. Talk President Trump's upset with the fed for continuing to raise rates and other people. Why does the fed continue to raise rates? Well, the reason they continue to raise rates is. Because the economy is strong. Okay. Inflation is really low unemployment is really low. So the the economy can take it does the stock market like it. No. And that's what caused a lot of the volatility at the end. That's why the fourth quarter, so stinky, but well, and the thing is I mean, you've got to remember we haven't raced them for we didn't raise something. It was not ridiculous. It was good because we needed it until we had a new president. And the economy started coming back because it hadn't it was a spot as they could be since two thousand and eight after our comeback. But then it just stayed flat. And they had to hold down raising rates because if they raise them first of all it would wreck the economy again. And if they raised them too quickly, even when the economy started coming back, it's just not good for the market just move up. Slowly, it'll help. When you break your leg. You don't suddenly start going out run marathons the day that you feel better because your bonus steel still healing. And that's where the economy is. But here's the thing. That's encouraging is that we do fully expect the Federal Reserve to raise rates more this year. But what was encouraging to me the last one in December of two thousand eighteen I watched the entire press conference of Powell of the fed deferred chairman, and he did admit that some of the members of the board of governors are concerned about raising rates too soon too fast and they've actually lowered their predictions for the number of potential rate increases from three increases to just two. So that means right there that should tell you that they are paying attention. They know the Federal Reserve has a bad habit of overshooting, the Mark on infrastructure increases. So, you know, part of the road to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. Well, they admit that they have a problem, but I'm encouraged. The Federal Reserve is paying attention to then I think they've done a good job. So far, I think they will do a good job this year. Well, that is very kind of you Damon. I I was going to say that's the new it improved Damon king feed. So kind plenty of other doom and gloom. So we'll we'll we'll talk about that here in little bit. It's just like trade and everybody was so concerned about these trade agreements, and like with Donald Trump or president putting these sanctions on China as a example. And there was just a report that came out. And it says, you know, it has not hurt us. No. It has not hurt us at all. And it actually has helped us because now there was three different industries. I wish I could remember what they were poultry was one, but there were three different industries. And that's why I was saying earlier in the show I'm gonna bring that I'm going to get bring those things because it's going to be all about Victoria's positively next week Damon. No, doom and gloom at all. But all the things that we have accomplished in twenty eighteen and how we can continue with those going into twenty nineteenth. So we're going to be sharing all the the successes that the country has really had. Now, we all know that right now the media tries to scare us about the trade with China. Will that did not happen? Actually, it has helped us. They're actually gearing up their orders from the United States the purchases from. Us. And that's that's what it's supposed to be equal. The second thing is it's like we keep talking about the government shutdown and the wall. Well, the wall wants to be built we we all voted. That's what we wanted. That's who voted for. But the deal was is that you know, how would because it keeps coming up. How would that be paid for? And how are we going to? We're going to record relationships with Mexico. Not really, and how you do it as you even out the trade agreements because we have been carrying the heavy load for everybody. That's the truth we've been carrying the load and taking care of the world. And now it's time and look at what it's done for us. It's hurt our infrastructure terribly. It's been there's a new commercial out with Owens. Clive is an actor Eddie taught he's standing under a bridge is not ready. He stayed around. The airports is not pretty and then he stands in from this amazing airplane. My husband may be freezing. He goes right rewind that look at that airplane is about how innovative we can be. So you got to look at those things and in look at the positive things because it seems to me I don't know if it's just me diamond. But it's all about the negativity. And I think you really should look at the things that are positive, and I have been blamed for that by Kimberly branch years ago that I would look at the goals that we didn't accomplish at the end of the year. And she was scolding me like you could not believe about excuse me. I'm a national sales manager you need to let me tell you young lady. Because I look at everybody across the board, and you should be very proud. And I mean, clearly, I don't think I've ever been schooled or Scotland. In a very sweet, she's a beautiful sweet blonde. But in a very sweet way, and I knew she cared about us. And it's always made me think every single year at the end of the year. I'm going to look back at the positive things that we well. And I honestly believe that China's going to be a much more conciliatory mood this year because you know, honestly, the trade war what if you want to call it that the traits bet, it's it's been more detrimental to their economy than ours. Exactly. And so they have a lot more to lose. They stand alum. We're lose than we do. And I think they're going to be more open to some. Yes. And when you see successes that we've had then, you know, other countries see the success that we've had you know, it just going to be fair people. That's all nobody's asking for anything any different just like years ago when we were nineteen Ninety-six, and we were at in Washington. The delegation for the White House conference on small business the under Bill Clinton, and they wanted me to support this equal rights, and you know, give better incentives, women and all that. And I said, you gotta understand don't ask me in front of anybody. Because all I expect a level playing field. That is all I expect. And I believe most everyone expects nobody wants a hidden advantage. Just give me an equal Plainfield. Let me go out there and play the game and win or lose it on my own merit my own hardwork. Well, another headline that's really important around here in Oklahoma..
