Tell us more. I'm joined now by buyer. Who's a reporter at politico. Good morning lily. Morning thanks for having me a pleasure to tell us what has happened with fidesz viktor. Victorian suggestion is is that. they have jumped before they were pushed. That's right that's so or band. Sent a letter formally withdrawing his ruling fetus party from the european people's party which job as you said. Is this big the biggest group in the european parliament. It's it's a centre-right grouping but it's actually. I'm quite diverse internally. It has some members that lena bit more liberal at how members which are quite conservative and even though officials eat this move came after change to the groups Internal rules really. It's a culmination of years. And years of of debate and internal tension and ultimately i think some of the group's biggest members and in particular the german at christian democratic union That that's the party of chancellor. Angela merkel at perhaps have started feeling that does is more of a liability ford them and so or bond decided you to quit and look elsewhere and just explain to us how we have got to this point where fidesz is in such a dire situation with the european parliament and that it that oh viktor. Orban has decided to leave. I mean i'm writing thinking that That european parliament officials had already suspended fitness from The the center right group already and this is just a second step well. He's his aides a bit complicated. But basically has has party was suspended from the broader european people's party A few years back but they were allowed to stay in the european people's party group in the european parliament. And what happened this week. Is that the twelve members of the european parliament. Left this centre-right grouping within the parliament and are now sitting in parliament but simply as independent members without formal political affiliation and the big question now is what will come next so whoa joined one of the more conservative right-leaning groups one option is the european conservatives and reformists group where the polish a ruling lon justice party is a member Another option is the identity and democracy group where alternative for germany and marine le. Pen's a party are are our members. And then there's the third option of china to create something new which is tough but but possible So what what we saw.

Interview With Jeremy Scott
"Good morning bob. This is nicole phelps. I'm the director of global vogue runway. And i'm here today with jeremy. Scott jeremy on or you. How are you jeremy's mosquito collection and video have been all over social media for the last twenty four hours or so and chances are you've probably seen it andrews christian madsen who is a colleague of mine at vogue runway. Put it this way. I thought this was a great quote. No one has quite aced this digital moment in fashion history. Like jeremy so we have lots of questions about how it all came together. Thank you very much for being here with us. My absolute love all right. Well you know i am. In addition to reviewing some shows all season long. I do a lot of editing. And and i thought anders made some really great observations in your piece and you said some very interesting things which i want to quote here. Which is you said. You use the term comfort sh- mumford and you elaborated to say what we need now. More than ever is fantasy and glamour. And i obviously don't disagree. But i am curious for you to talk to us. About how the way you design and what you design has changed if at all after a year in in lockdown amidst the pandemic. Well i think you know very well watching my work. That i'm a very devout devotee of high octane glamour. Always and so. That part really hasn't changed. I might have put the pedal to the metal a little bit more this season and last but i think what's changed a lot. It's kind of like what we're doing right now. Everything i'm seeing are through screens. I did my fittings through screens through something like this. You know thinking about how the work is seeing. It's all seeing through screen so i'm looking at it already. My work is very Theatrical and very photogenic. And i think of it in a way how would be finally consumed always but now it's almost entirely consumed at this moment via screens. So i've i've been watching it in a different way. So while doing the fittings with my team and milan and they are doing the actual pinning in the actual adjustments for me. And i'm directing it in in a manner like this. I'm watching it in a in a in a way that takes away that that moment of being next to it and there is something i think that does give it a little bit more of remove that makes it a little bit more in a way precise i know sounds kind of weird. Did say it that way. But i don't have the emotional moment of the model in front of me and everything happening live. I'm more dissecting it. 'cause i'm looking at through a screen and i am. I am removed in that respect. So i feel like part has changed and maybe even well i feel. That's a good segue to talk about the the collections last season to refresh people's memory. Jeremy did a fantastic video where he turned models and Front row goers in into marionettes and it was a huge ships are on vogue runway and an across the internet. And what you did this season was you. I would say paid homage to a very famous movie. Called the women from nineteen thirty nine george cougar film and s specific seen so specific fashion show scene. Can you tell us anything about your experience with that movie. Maybe when you saw it for the first time or why are you. Liked it enough to recreate it for this. Absolutely i verify brain to even remember when i could have seen it first. 'cause it's one of things that feels like it's been with me forever. I think any real fashion fan would put this on one of their top. Ten list of you know old hollywood films especially ones that have a fashion show in it. One is really the creme de la creme not only. Is it beautifully done. But also there are the costumes by adrian who is also it's such a icon for so many fashion designers and having done all the most beautiful all hollywood glamorous films and costumes at that time but beyond the costumes i think for me is is really the fact that the film is only women. There's only actresses. There's not one time. There's a a a male actor in the film even with a voice. So i love that because honestly as normal is that maybe should be today. It's still not normal. Hollywood for an all female cast to be able to carry a film and not film doesn't so beautifully now specifically for the scene that was inspired by is the fashion show scene in their out of salon. Which is such an you know. Typical historical fashion kind of scenario. And this was more like the the dressmaker salon. Instead of. maybe the paris couturier and they're coming to choose the their guard the road for the season. I wanted to kind of think about all the things that they would need to wear now again thinking about the time of the film. These ladies did not work. They were not having jobs their characters. Were you know really dependent upon men. So i wanted to start mind with them. As busy businesswomen in takes of the pin stripe suit these kind of business looks that would be putting them in charge. And not you know quibbling about the fact that they're working they're only working you're working for them and they're not working for you

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge
"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to

Perhaps there's even some depression all these things. Doubts fears anxieties tuition. We live in a world. That's that men are just supposed to suck it up and show up and make it happen and never deal with that stuff. And i'm fed up about it. You know yeah. I completely agree. I mean there's so many times where these the my community. I hear a lot of people say you know. Just people like people express their you know their perspective as means now and i saw one. That says a personal say. I'm good until they're in a dark place a depression. But are you are you okay. I'm good no matter what it is you know. You said you're not supposed to be crying.

A Texas boy who died during a winter storm north of Houston, remembered at the monument
"Let's remember this morning during a memorial service in the Woodlands, just north of Houston, family, friends and teachers gathered at the Woodlands Church to honor the life of Christian Pin. Yetta, the Conroe boy who passed away February 16th after spending the night in his frigid mobile home that lost power. Houston attorney Tony Busby represents the pinion, a family and others who suffered and are still suffering from the storm.

When God Becomes 100% for Us
"Among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh carrying out the desires of the body and the mind and were by nature children of rats like the rest of mankind visions to three all of god's wrath all the condemnation we deserve was poured out on jesus all of god's demand for perfect righteousness were fulfilled. By christ the moment we see by grace this treasure and receive him in this way his death counts as our deaths and his condemnation as our condemnation and his righteousness as our righteousness and god becomes one hundred percent irrevocably for us forever in that instant question. This leaves unanswered is doesn't the bible. Teach that any turn ity. God set his favor on us in election. In other words thoughtful people ask. Did god become one hundred percent for us. In the moment of faith and union with christ and justification did he not become one hundred percent. Four us in the act of election before the foundation of the world pulses inefficient one. Four and five. God chose us in jesus before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and blameless before him in love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through. Jesus christ is god then not one hundred percent for the elect from eternity. The answer hangs on the meaning of one hundred percent with the term one hundred percent. I'm trying to preserve a biblical truth found in several passages of scripture for example. In if he wants to three. Paul says that christians children of rat before they were made alive in. Christ jesus. We all once lived among the sons of disobedience in the passions of our flesh carrying out the desires of the mind and the body and were by nature children of wrath like the rest of mankind. Polish saying that before birth before we were made alive together. With christ god's wrath was on us the elect were under wrath. This changed when god made us alive. In christ jesus and awakened us to see the truth and beauty of christ so that we received him as the one who died for us and as the one who's righteousness is counted as ours because our union with jesus before this happened to us we were under god's grass then because of our faith in christ and union with him all god's wrath was removed and he then became in that sense one hundred percent for us therefore exult in the truth that god will keep you he will get you to the end because in christ he is one hundred percent for you and therefore getting to the end does not make god to be one hundred percent for you. It is the effect of the fact that he is already one hundred percent for

"Verse three so again. This is song or something. That's always take verse by verse if you look at one. Lesson is the man who wants not in the Council of the wicked your stands in the way of centers nor sits in the seat of S- coffers now the contrast but his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law. He meditates day and night the blessing from that he is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season. And it's leave does not wither in all of that. He does in all that he does. He Prospers David. Giving us here are metaphorical images of the blessed. In Christ. He is like a tree. The tree is the symbol of a life of blessing proverbs. Three eighteen says she is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her. Those who hold her fast are called. Blessed she is referring to the wisdom. Providence refers to wisdom is sheep. So what is the tree of life to those who hold those who hold her faster called blessed then if you look at proverbs nine ten the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the holy one is inside the knowledge of the holy? What is inside? You can't have in your eyes and your ears and your heart open by the Holy Spirit and being truly blessed. He is like a tree planted. Consider the endurance of the OAK redwoods that Stanford centuries amidst the harshest weather was fascinating. If you go to the coast of Northern California. You see these trees. They're massive and been there for hundreds of years. Sometimes thousands of all the snowstorms all the windstorms all the lightning strikes. All the abused. They've taken and they just keep growing. Just stand there the metaphor this in presented here. He's like a tree planted by what streams of water the tree indoors and perseverance because of the street that nourishes and sustains it those Christ are nourished and sustained by his by his word which is the stream of living water talks John. That's what sustains is a strength Nabil's to persevere and endure our time here in the midst of evil tree planted by streams of water that yields what it's fruit. The righteous live lives of true purpose true purpose and prosperity bearing fruit. Which he never withers or rots but as stored up as eternal treasure. So picture that again. He's like a tree planted by streams of water. They yields its fruit. The righteous lives of true purpose and chew Prosperi bearing fruit. Which never withers arrives but is stored up as eternal treasure. That's the one is doing things for the right reason building treasure in the right place. That's not fleeing. That will not go away. He's like a tree planted by streams of water. You'll win in its season. This is so important since one of the lessons that I tell so. Many people that are that are new to the Christian. Thank you for your somebody. That's been trapped in a life of seeing in their life has been suffering darkness and they come to Christ. What's the first thing you become like a ministry superstar change the work? What happens they do that in a few years later their weight on the Lore see what his planting is going to bring forth in your life so it season means that the genuinely prosperous live the men to genuinely prosperous. Life is a life of seasons times of being watered in times of watering times of sewing in times of harvest times of being fed times of seething interesting the longer. You're in Christ you look back over your life and you see those times times when we may have been through a death in the family or something. That's that we've had to struggle through a great trial. So what do we need? We need to be fed. We need to do nurture through. That trial is due builds. Our character or stronger feed others sing so their seasons through lives in Christ. He's like a tree planted by streams of water that yielded food at season and it's leaf does not wither. Genuine prosperity is eternally secure. Three from the sting of death freed from sin. If you're not in Christ when they of death calms you've created all you're gonNA create done on you treasure now's gone if you're truly striving to serve the Lord into Bill Treasure in heaven your lease never with it. There's really no wintertime or fall. You're in a perpetual spring time. We may go through times. The seem like winter and fall but if we are in Christ or still being nurtured and our leaves wither through all this all that he does he prospers now. God's Word is perfect. It's an errand Christian seem to prosper things coming to see. How can Paul read that? Some as he's writing the book of the Asian he's got sores on ankles from the chains. That are running on his angels. He's sitting in a prison. How do we Stephen? Talking about in all that. He doesn't prosperous all prosper. Most Chris nowadays can even imagine because his he conveyed the Gospel through the letters of Hugh Rope. What are they believed the group everywhere? Those letters met you. Trees from his wife is prosperity was true prosser. It wasn't early prosper. Very he had a fruitful worship prosperity genuine prosperity which the world can't comprehend divine prosperity by God's grace and blessing full of joy. So the reason why this is important is because as Christians we may be given worldly prosperity can solve it. He prayed for wisdom and understanding the Lord blessed him with that and he also blessed him with worldly prosperity but at the end of his life when he was writing clearly ounces. He basically said all this worldly stuff. It's a waste of time when all comes down to his fear of the Lord. Serve you love and that gives all this stuff. What meaning you're driving the race car for the right reasons.

"Title of the servants as genuine Christian cross spirits based on Psalm. One one three which I'll get into shortly. I just wanted to preface it with a couple of thoughts that I think. Help US put this topic of prosperity in the proper context. I'm going to read a bit of of what the Lord has laid on my heart this morning as I was doing the final notes of this and the topic of prosperity because of its being abused and manipulated by some of the modern church seems to be a topic that is sadly neglected from a genuine biblical perspective. Seems like a lot because the Prosperity Gospel is such an obvious rupture the word prosperity can actually have a negative connotation in much of the modern Christian church but it shouldn't be that way there is a genuine biblical prosperity that we have as believers so just because something biblical has been hijacked. Doesn't mean we should abandon rather it seems important to address it and provide biblical clarity in areas. We're really error has clouded the water and this was the case when we started this church and ministry seven or eight years ago. People came to me and said well. Why would you call it the way you know? When people hear the way they think the way international which is a call is done horrific damage. But I said because we're taking the name bath what it was originally meant to be if you read the book of acts. The Christian Church was called the way before it was called Christianity. Was the original identification of the Church and she said I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the father but through me and John. Fourteen six in that same spirit because something has been corrupted. Doesn't mean we should. We should try to correct it and bring it back to what it means in a biblical sets. Jesus referred to himself as the true and John. Fourteen six I believe that that applies on so many levels that we see throughout Christianity and in the context of today's message. I believe that if we are truly abiding and cries in his word in his truth and whatever we do will be based in that truth will glorify him. If we prosper our prosperity will be true and genuine because it will be grounded in truth and will truly be joyful blessing without the painting of the world and the teaching of human nature thing I love about when we study the word and we really spent time in the in the Study of the Gospel and Meditating on God's Word is that we see reflections of Biblical truth in the world around us notice. I use the word reflections. Reflexions are not revelations. See if we say that God is revealing something from the world that may be the case but how we know that's true we hold it up to the life scripture what we normally see in the world around us are reflections of what is revealed to us. Through God's word in scripture is word reflected in so many ways in the world around us but in this topic today that we're going to get into about prosperity what it really comes down to. Is something being genuine? Something being false and one of the ways that I saw exhibited was in this movie that Lori and why I went saw a few weeks ago called four versus for art so many of the movies nowadays aren't worth seeing but this one. I really enjoy this film part because I'm racing fan. I love cars but the more the on that he was the the way that they develop the story and the relationship between the main characters. But in the opening scenes of this movie Christian Bale's character it was based on a story is based on Carroll Shelby and a racer named king miles. These were real guys. It was a historical story that was being conveyed in this film. But in this opening scene Christian Bale's character. Ken Miles I. He owns a repair shop in Los Angeles. Back in the sixties. He tells the owner of a sports car that he's preparing that the reason the car seems to be running poorly is that the owner doesn't understand the car or know how to drive it. See Ken Miles is one of these guys that he doesn't cutting corners. Just tell people the way it is. And this guy's complaining that his car backfires it doesn't run right or the reason is performance hard that needs to be driven performance manner especially in the sixties. Charles visits worked on cars forever. Yeah you drive a car and had a good level of performance keep it performing so he suggested the guy that maybe would be better off if he switched to a station wagon you know and this is this guy. That's very proud. That's very caught up in materialism he says you know. This car is just. Don't understand how to drive it. You don't have a feel for baby better off in the country squire. I think that's when you're first which was a big station by him. Back so the guy gets angry. He jumps in the car he drops the question quickly goes off occurred. And then he accelerates for the down the street he can hardly hold onto the car because of the Horse Power. He's in something way over his head. So that is that the owner of the sports car. He was coveting an image. That the car helps betray. He was seeking something that the car could not give him. Ken Miles love the car because it could give him what he sought from. Its speed performance handling. He had no interest in cars for image or status can miles was a racer and so he honored a race car by driving to the for the right reasons and in the way that it was designed to be driven. Ken Miles truly prosper behind the wheel of a racecar. The Guy The guy who bought the sports car from Indian covetousness suffered because he was in something. He didn't understand something from the car that the car was not designed to give him what he wanted was seeking was unattainable to him from a car or anything else and this is the trap that so many spend their lives. So what you see. If you see that movie.

"Lives and then we're creating idols. I always think I'm not a big team sport watcher. But I've always. I'm always amazed as we listen to people. Talk about sports like they talk about their team right. We did what did you do. You sat on the couch and watched you didn't do didn't do anything in that game. You know it's it's the idea of the ownership that they have they get so invested in it as as if they own it you know it was funny because you know I I was talking with my uncle wants and we're talking about the fact that people talk like you're he's hearing people we'll talk about the LA rams when they're in L. A.. And he was like we're talking about our team. Did this. We did that. And he's like you don't own the team. I WHY DO I. It's my team. You know I can say that. And it was just funny because he had a different perspective he actually did on the team. He did have apart but he hired the ball because he didn't there. Were a bunch of people. But you know there's a different perspective and you end up seeing how people get so so I guess engrossed in it that they lose their own identity in the identity of their team and that becomes like everything. I mean. It's amazing to me. You see I will see even professing believers that almost go to blows over sports like disagreeing over sports teams. But I just don't get it but grand. I'm not a sports watcher. So but I think it's like what you're saying if it becomes something that it encroaches so much in our in our life that it overtakes the priorities and I think that's where I think we'd all I'm going to assume we all would agree. It's sinful when that happens but let me flip it now because Ns this for the for the person like drama was saying you have people who are Dr who start to judge other people because of the sports you watch the books you read the music you listen to the movies you watch and they start to judge you. Is there a fair level of judgment that people can have biblically in in these different areas. Where people could be enjoying culture is there? Are there lines where we could say okay. We should judge that lines. We say you know what that's Christian liberty we we shouldn't we shouldn't say what you guys think. I guess if I'm correctly I'm thinking it depends on nine right the content like you know disadvantage depending on Whitlam's crossed in that like Our liberties by about sexual themes. I'm going to an extreme. Because you know just to drop words line is strong so like where basically where where would you. Where would you draw your lines? Where do you see? The line should be drawn. Where do you think that I don't like okay so me personally? If you've been on the sexual themes I what is being shown is. It's a sex scene or is it just a nude food pop pop pop pop out. You know because you see if there's one scene. There's probably show brash stone disarmed breath and it's throwing out when it's GonNa get a rating of a Ma because he's gonNA show. Nudity does is there so is that enough to not watch completely for me. That would allow John. Offer me me personally. No that that's not GonNa bug me. There's not I'm not going to get an less. You know. Just seen as in and out now is there a sex scene of all is they find out the sixteen about yeah. I'm not GonNa Watch that one be pornography and so as as a line draw even when it comes to when it comes on the sexual side of it when it comes to the cussing. Is there some customers that a lot of cussing you know. is is is a lot of blasphemy. Or is it glad all you know me. I don't WANNA I don't WanNa Washington thing that I noticed by they base the whole movie my blasting God I you know allow. GD's all through the movie. And everything else I wanna hear you know. Oh Oh it is once okay cool that goes to talk to somebody who may have already seen it you know and then have can tell me that happened if I'm watching it just POPs in I'm not going to cut it off because I hear once that makes sense and so it is it depends you know trying to think of something else like like I even A gory content like Violence like our like. I like films like I would like some balance and stuff like that Just the way shy and you know so I know some people say you should watch violence. Ns I'm okay watching. Violence Elms is not is not gonNa make me think murderous. AWW You want to go out and commit murderer doing these things or me. Glorifying it or say is okay. Today he got killed someone saying and just watching to me. I'm watching this art so so I guess it depends on how far something alot late even on our watch against movie here. I'm not going to watch a a movie where it just shows. Somebody like taking a knife slowly ripping. Somebody's head off like I'm not going to do that. You know it would depend on the level of of stuff to say. I guess if I can make it simple.

"Around two thousand two thousand one something like that and I said yeah he said by the way that's from. I'm on Yemen. And so they were passing around. Just the text without saying it's from a satirical paper But to this day and that actually made That actually made a list that was called. It was like you know five times. The onion fooled everyone where the onion put on article and people passed it around his truth And there I think that there are some some valid things with Harry Potter and and we may even disagree within here. I I myself was kind of against it and Not really knowing a lot about it and then my pastor and his wife another elders wife read it and then another one one of my friends did and they said this is not what we thought it was at all. We think it's okay to let your kids read. And I saw my kids learn to love reading those books with with the Narnia books with the Harry Potter Lord of the Rings. So here's an interesting thing. I have somewhere on on my shelf. I have a two volume two or three volumes. Set from from someone dealing with Harry Potter. This was a really interesting. This is where I think. This is going to play when we think about culture and how we respond to it he basically was making. He had three basic author's book series in mind. The Harry Potter series was which was his book was basically about. Christians should not read Harry Potter. it's evil. It's wicked teach which craft then he had chronicles the Narnia and Lord of the Rings and on with those two. He's basically saying. This is good fiction Harry Potter bad fiction. And I'm I'm trying to evaluate because he was saying Harry Potter's bad because there's witchcraft but chronicles Lornia nausea. Has that too and I was like wait a minute. You're saying it's witchcraft. But you're not saying you're saying witchcraft. Well they both have witchcraft. And I'm looking GonNa Lord of the Rings and I'm going like you know he's saying well good good Christian books are always going to be teaching Christian principles like what's the Christian principle in Lord of the rings because there's actually a book out. There called finding the Gospel in the Lord of the Rings. My theory is if you have to write a book about how to Find The Gospel in Lord of the Rings. It's it's probably not clear I don't have to do that with chronicles of Narnia. Because they're really clear like if you know the Gospel you can see that message there but I actually argued that I could. I could present the Gospel easier through Harry Potter then I could Lord of the rings or chronicles of Narnia. Because I mean if you know the whole that whole story it's like okay. Here's someone because a love these he's gotTa die and be resurrected for for everybody else to live I mean did the author intend. That will clearly not. She's not a believer. She's very much against Christianity. So I would say that. That was was her goal but when people are trying to say the Lord of the Rings Presents The Gospel. I don't see that I see a lot of truth that we know in any. I mean you know greed and and you know we're in Lord of the Rings and him you know the the greed and stuff it will. You could see that any any act because that's part of human nature so I just I look at this stuff and I think sometimes we say well. A Christian shouldn't shouldn't do this like they should only be reading from Christian Authors and Somehow if a Christian writes it it's it's got to be better. I think if you have a Christian I I agree with Eve if you have a Christian. That's wants to be a great author like you know. Jr token if you want to say okay. Here's a Christian. WHO's a writer? But he wasn't writing a Christian book. I mean I I believe he even said that it wasn't you know he wasn't trying to teach Christian principles but it's a fascinating book. It's a great book to read and it's not having this Christian overtone throughout it but someone that may be a believer lever writes it. Does that automatically make it better. No but he was an expert at his craft. And that's what I would say we when it comes to the culture. I don't have a problem. I don't know how you guys GonNa feel like there was that an I couldn't remember his name Jamalpur. I remember calling and I can remember today But there was a rap rap singer Christian rap artist who started to do secular music. I always say it's the CRAYON. It's no way because I keep getting corrected but there was. There was a guy who he did a secular album now. The question only have is the album promoting things that are anti-christian or things that Christians shouldn't be focused on. If the answer's no it's teaching principles that are that are godly and good. But it doesn't have a definite Christian overtone fine. Be An expert at your craft and if you can do that even we're we're the secular world is his appeal to great fine. What's the big deal? you know. I think that I think that there's many Christians out of any you guys are or this. This have this view one. Describe me at. That'd be good but I think we have a lot of Christians who think that somehow Christians should only be entertained by Christians agents and somehow that makes it different even if like like you said if it's poorly done but somehow we should only be watching Christian stuff. We're reading Christian stuff. What are your thoughts? I think it makes us less able to communicate with the world and if we're going to go out and preach the Gospel. I'm not saying we have to use star wars or Lord of the rings or something like that To Find The Gospel in it and present the Gospel hostile to somebody. We use the Bible to present the Gospel. Because that's what the Gospel is in the Bible not in any Christian or secular written entertainment but it gives us an into a conversation a lot of times. You can sit down and talk with somebody who's on saved using a movie that's current currently out or a a book that's currently out and if you're familiar with that material you can carry on an educated conversation that can lead to the Gospel not because Using that material T- to preach the Gospel but because you're using that material as a conversation starter to get yourself to the Gospel and that's why I really appreciate about Andrew when you do your interviews. You need you that little game where you try to lead take any any topic and and the spiritual transition game. Yeah Yeah spiritual transition game. I think that's something that's useful for all of us to try and it. It is helpful to at least have have some understanding of what the world is imbibing so that we can at least have some common ground to start conversations. They don't they always WANNA. I wanted to add to that I agree I think we mentioned is in a less of donen kind of on the same side is eve. Witness is But it's Christians needs to have the stigma as far as being like on being terrible or tobacco kinda stuff like that. I I was listening on uh on the hip hop side of things is his name. Well his rap name was creator. I'll I'm no not only what his real name is. But he has a he does videography videography and cinematography. So I was wondering I one time I was like well. I wonder if how to like how someone in urban setting would film video or film of the Concept Desk Christian. He's a Christian but yet not making aware is so it's not relatable you know it's all I remember is like He does videos. They kind of depict how it would be in urban streets right How do we gang activity and stuff like that? He'd films this stuff yet. There's no cussing and he doesn't. He's Co cussing in it. But it's so believable is the way his film the way shot and he releases the more you too and the way there are anything like man. This is captivating like this is this is relatable. You know I don't I'm not it's not cheesy easy so to so to speak you know. And that's what that's where we get a lot of times I I would love to see a movie A Christian movie depicting how things could be in the urban settings in the streets you know and how personally like comes in and bring their life to Christ but a lot of times when those kind of things are being depicted is very cheesy as like the The Not realistic. That's what I'm looking for a realistic. It's a what actually happens is because they're trying to fit themselves in his box and feel like they go outside out of it at any point just a little bit. There's going to be knock. Chris is going to be you know heresy. Or it's GonNa you know and And that's why we have a lot of problems with a lot of Christian Christian movies is because they feel ashamed or scared to be natural and man like Dr saved us where we are. You know late. We are hard to change. We we come to know the truth right. We don't believe in the falsehoods would come to the truth but who we are personalities and all those things are intact you know we're not renar robots and so we should be still be a relatable instill Beta may content. That should be relatable you know especially like evil Santa's WanNa reach the world you know they don't talk like us they don't think like us you know and not necessarily but doesn't mean we don't live we don't we live the same earth and so for me to relate to it and you know and so so that's why I was thinking about Creator. Who Does music on does music can videos enter good quality? I mean you know. I don't know what kind of Bungee works. But he does excellent quantity for what he has then. The content is is is realistic. Sika so it's a good example. WHO's trying to do it right? You know we saw this. Just WanNa throw in there and it is possible. You know why I think Eve said something very important that I wanNA highlight. And that's why we do have Christians at that are movies and things. It's a lot of times we're so busy fighting over the theology of it or you know there was a there was a movie movie. Put out by Hollywood. I'm trying to remember the name of it. I can't but edged the spear now there was big issue with that. Maybe this might be an interesting. It's called enter the end of the spear okay. A you know maybe maybe Has a program on it that I haven't heard I'm kind of like the expert on that movie so I consider it a really good movie too but I don't know that I don't believe we reviewed it.

It's okay it's just as you know we love you anyway and everything else and just kind of pushing that agenda you know. ooh You come out if you a lesbian and no one will love you. Everybody hates you. You know whereas not really understanding days ascended against that we're against versus Gillam with individual Eh. But it's like But yeah I I became. It became a couple of Washer show as much because not only day. It wasn't just that night. That was a part of it. But then you had the the Sun Black Guy only his daughter come out to be as much as he made his father. He finally caught up with his father is his real father but his father was almost sexual and they floated that indiscreet. You know saying and the scene was promoting in some of them were no saying like the the companies who make these movies make these shows. They don't know what you know what we're looking at. And and if we're disagreeing with this and that they look into view yeah well I think I think they have an I think I mean I. I don't have an agenda. I go back to and I'm going to date myself. But I remember watching the movie Kramer Versus Kramer which now is considered a classic. But why the reason they put that to to to normalize divorce because when that movie came out in the eighties like nobody that I knew my school was was divorced. Had parents were divorced but after that came out all of a sudden it was I I recognized within the year. A bunch of my friends are parents. Got Divorced like after emily enters normalized it. Now let me let me. Because we're I know we'RE GONNA end up having wrap up and we haven't had too much disagreement. I'm GONNA try now. There was something out at at Eve. Let's see So he said we shouldn't try to take Star Wars and finding the Gospel in Star Wars. How about Lord of the Rings because there was that book that came Out Finding The Gospel in Lord of the Rings Just because the author professes to be a Christian does that make the book and movie Christian. No I'll I'll give. I'll give you the thing I'll give you background on this. Why I'm asking this question and see what you guys think? When Harry Potter came out the Books Looks There was some and I think it actually started on like the onion which is satire where they were Ted. Something about Harry Potter Teaching Witchcraft Craft or whatever. But here's the thing. All once people came out against Harry Potter. I was pastoring at time and had to Yup. You're asking asking you this now when Davinci Code came out I read Davinci Code. I mean I'll read these things I've read the Hobbit of read Lord of the Rings I've read chronicles of Narnia. And I I ended up reading Harry Potter now. I ended up reading a book that was that someone gave me To read that basically blasted asked Harry Potter but praised Lord of the rings and Chronicles Narnia. And somehow they were trying to say that in Harry Potter there was magic. Magic and magic was bad and I'm going but there was a ton of magic in chronicles Noni and end in in Lord of the rings the chronicles of Narnia did seem to have. I mean I see as Lewis did have an agenda of trying to promote the Gospel. I don't think there was a case token with Lord of the Rings and I made the case that if you know the story line of Harry Potter I could. Actually it wasn't Harry Potter was not written as a Christian book. But You could see the gospel easier in Harry Potter. Then you can lord of the Rings I mean the the OSCE ruined the ending of you guys didn't read it but in the end in the end and here's a guy who's you know. He's he's what makes them special is he's here is the love of his of his mother but he has this ring. This Resurrection stone and so the the way he saves the world is he has to die for everybody everybody and he uses the resurrection stone to resurrect himself and come back in defeat. The bad guy. And I'm like I can make that. I mean that's real easy. I mean Resurrection Stone and everything makes the Gospel easy. But Lord of the Rings Sues. I think that's pushing it. So but a lot of people have issue with that that because they say that it was sinful for me to read Harry Potter but Listen to my podcast then. Yeah I mean I so so I I think that just because you know like the argument that will make because that Lord of the rings is good because the author was saved. And I'm saying but no it's the same fantasies the same. I don't see how you the content of the of the book doesn't Make It somehow Christian in my mind. I definitely will agree that you can't get saved reading the Lord of the Rings. It's not the Bible. It's not the Gospel I think that my opinion on something like the Lord of the rings is that we need more people writing that kind of fiction. Who are Christians because they exemplify Christianity in their writing even if they're not writing the Gospel They they can put forward Christian morals and Christian ethics and At lead people to question and and look for more truth I think that if if you're going to be writing fantasy it's better to back it on a Christian Foundation than the backup on on any of the other world religions here That will lead people astray. I've read fantasy from you know people who are Who are pagan to the hilt and And they they morals and their ethics come through in their writing and then you have to sit down and like I do with any of the movies that I review in. Are you just watching. You have to you know. This is where they're wrong. This is where they're presenting the wrong worldview. This is the you know how this doesn't fit into Christianity the Christian Authors and compression moviemakers and Christian songwriters. They're going to bring their face to what they create but that doesn't make their their creations Gospel. Truce so you always have to understand that they are presenting things out of their worldview which means that they're going to be things in there that we like but they are. They're not scripture as they're not you know ordained scripture so you have to put them in the place in the position on the side saying this is non-fiction or this is fiction written by people who have perhaps to correct worldview but it still fiction Shen. Okay let me let me do this. Then I'm going to tweet that throw something out for each of us. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA wrap up so let each of you answer and wrap up anything else you WanNa say and so let me ask it this way. 'cause so here you have a believer that right something that's not christian-based. This is a big argument. People make make so can A. What's his name was shy Lynn? That was a Christian rapper. That then started writing secular songs. US Kenny Christian produce a book. Music you know any anything in the arts that doesn't point to the strictly to the Gospel and the words if I'm a Christian musician does every song have to be Christian based If I'm a Christian in writer does everything have to have the Gospel in it. You know if I produce movies as it always have to point to the Gospel or Christian theme so I will go. We'll go in any order you guys want. And and then Hit that or any of the other topics that you WANNA wrap up. Well I definitely have a position on that. I believe that we need more Christians that are writing for secular audiences because we're not reaching we're not reaching the world and if all we're doing is preaching to the choir and I'd much rather read a fantasy book written by Christian author than a fantasy book written by Pagan Author You you know if I'm going to read fantasy and so I think that yes definitely. We should be using our skills and our talents that God gave us to to sneak the sneak our worldview and our ethics and our morality into the world. They do it to us. Why shouldn't we do it to them? You encouraging us to be sneaky. Okay I admit I just I just like to listen to Eve laugh okay. Which one are you? GUYS WANNA go agree with Yvonne that I do believe that as believers no matter what producing in everybody's producing something if it it may not be any form of war but it could be the way we worked the way we live our lives the way we apparent it has to be informed by the Gospel Now does that necessarily to me everything we say or do points directly to the Cross in what Christ accomplished was forced not necessarily but it may speak to how we now live our life in light of the Gospel and we may still like in movies resort Music or anything that. For example it may be to reality of life in the difficulty of life without nece Turley spilling out. The Gospel is but it could be pointing to the effects of Christ in a life. Now so I guess this is GonNa be needed. Discipline is a disappointing thing. Because we're going to agree. I I'll scientists say my home I was thinking about when when you brought the question of Andrews out they might have like a separate channel I do not have just kind of blogging. I our be on it or might have been doing mostly now since I started growing my hair back out a lot. Journeys a youtube culture thing but his like when I create those videos for that particular channel. I'm not preaching every time I come on. You know I'm just basically talking about you know the process of growing.

"Image Award Patriots of what a Gospel message it is and some people. Don't find that entertaining sometimes. It's just because it's a little budget but Christian films Help that don't have the Hollywood budget that the big fellas have fillers that if you want to be entertained just be careful what you subject yourself to like. You said the check and see others his language or or nudity or whatever the film may have has it then. We'll we'll kiesel challenge it that a little bit because if you think about the Kendrick brothers back when they started maybe not now but they. They had no budget. It was a church that did it ahead churched people in the church that were actors but they decided that they didn't WanNa make something. That looked cheaply done that. Looked low budget and so they they they put a lot behind it and I. I think that you can do that. You know I'll give you a great example in a in a a ministry that put that same mindset into place if if you think about museums if if any of you have been to the creation museum in Kentucky if if you haven't what is wrong with you but that is like phenomenally done and I'm not just saying that because I'm one of the founding members a WHO helps support. It was amazing to see that. Done the the detail that was put into it and I had the privilege of going there before they opened and I got to see some moves before they were done. But you could. You could tell the detail that they put it. Is that why. Because they said look. We know that the people bring kids to to museums. Why because here they they come in there entertain? They they look at it. Oh it's amazing and then you go to Kristie museums and it's like okay. You're done in an hour. You know I mean the thing that blew me away is my son hates museums. We went the first time for the the creation museum. We were there for two days and I. I was like worried because like I wanted to sit and read everything and I was figuring my son was gonna WanNa want to bolt and I was going to have to deal with it. Were there two days. We went one day. Read through everything and my son was like go get I was okay what why why because it was so well done same with the. The Kendrick bothers their movies that they did. It was low budget they but they wanted to be competitive with the world world in that sense but a lot of I will agree with you that That those people to the main to me that was like the beginning of the Christian film industry really coming around and people who pay attention to that in the entertainment industry will say that the Christian films had gotten a lot better the last ten fifteen years habit in a long time. Yeah and I think I think that some of it though is look. I think that one of the things from in general now granted. Most you guys know. I didn't grow up in a Christian home so I didn't grow up watching Christian movies from it But the thing that I did did I do notice. Is that the movies that were from generation. Go It's like they. All had to be evangelical. They always had to be the whole goal. The movie was the Gospel so people people were saved and and I remember when I was in college. And I've watched some of these movies as a believer and I was puzzled like already a Christian like I WanNa Watch a Christian movie. That doesn't it's not just the gospel raining like it seemed like Christian movies. Everything was you had to share the gospel because it was offered the unbelieving world and. Yeah leaving world isn't GonNa Watch it thank you. I mean they that I was I was saying earlier about preaching to the choir is that Christians tend to do that. We tend to produce material that only Christians are going to read or watch because we we we get so heavily in our our Christian. Speak that somebody who is A A non believer is not going to pick it up and read it. And that's why. I made the comment that we need more more. Writers who are Christians not more Christian writers because if if we let the culture I mean like let's take for instance Harry Potter Harry Potter was a book that was written for young people and it it got the massive audience across the world and it got you know even church. People were arguing about whether they could let their kids read these books and a Harry Potter basically introduces young people to a paganistic worldview without very little theology if any backing it up because the writers Pagan and if we had a Christian writer like let's say. Cs Lewis who writes a series of books that have a Christian underpinning to them mm-hmm of Christian Foundation. But they're not necessarily preachy but they're entertaining books that kids like to read or have read to them. That's what we need is more C. S. Lewis's in the world who are writing to a secular audience that writing and producing material secular audiences want to read and watch and we don't have that in our culture and when Christians do produce stuff preaching to the choir half the choir disagrees with the theology and then get mad at it and uh-huh well. You can't go watch that because you know that has this was done by a post millennial. Oh no and we start nitpicking over the theology of the doctrine that we don't agree with and and half the audience goes away and that's why Christians can't make money producing for or Christian audiences because we're too divisive inside of our own camps. Okay I WANNA share my notes there. Look at that Harry Potter. That was the next topic that it's like. You just read my notes there. I gotta say I those are such good points eve. You just made a couple of really excellent points that have me really really thinking so I appreciate your comments. Well I didn't WanNa talk about Harry Potter. Because there was very interesting I noticed the interesting thing with Harry Potter now full disclosure. I have read all of Harry Potter. But I've also read all the Davinci Code and and the other works of Dan Brown I read. I read a whole lot a bad stuff because it comes in the Church and people ask for response. I'm I do original research so when someone asks me to do something I check it out now here. Here's here's an interesting thing And coleen on CRT Gals movies. Except who I'm not knowing comes to me and says. Hey you know pastor Andrew what do you think about this movie so i. Fortunately I've but if someone comes to me and I'll go watch the movie I guess maybe but but that's what I have just watching for see I don't have to I just go back and look in the the the old episodes of are you just watching and I go look here. Just listen. Listen to even Tim tell you what to think about them. Some glad that you do it for me. I can't do all the heavy lifting myself Eve on our podcast feed is kind of buried deep in there. We have a very very slow moving project that my co-host denied the side the start. We're talking about a superhero movies. And you know how a lot of superheroes have a lot of dark inks than Superman is not the same superman he was back in the golden days of these or forty sixties excuse or whatever and we came with the idea for a superhero we hashed out storyline. We have about to show is hosted by have about five scripts written. There's about fifteen altogether and in the whole series and It's about the way I want to do it as much like what you've described and that is to have a superhero Who Does Superhero staff just to his behavior and actions you? You can tell it's a Christian now of course my co host being the bathrooms creature. He had this discussion about the end of the of the the series everybody gets saved. They all come to Christ GonNA die. This person's GonNa die because of what you do. In the good stories people get killed off because that's what makes a good story to tragedy in the angst though at all But we can do that. I think by you. You know people by making making realistic and in the end no matter who gets saved maybe help me along the way because we do want to have have a Christians have an awesome. Cliffhanger goes into a follow up story and what's that cliff in a review I'm in patients. So but here's the thing and on theology gals sometime ago. Oh I don't remember the episode number calling consent meters and yeah yeah if you could have dot com. Look up Harry Potter. Did you do that can you. Just give me the episode number by now come on all right okay. Before the show is over we'll have that episode number but they they did an episode on Harry Potter. And here's the thing I found so interesting because this I didn't know I was approached with the Harry Potter because I was pastoring at the Chinese church and I had one Louie's who children wanted to watch the movie. She was very much against it because she saw a news article that said that teaches witchcraft. And and all all this stuff but I didn't know and learned from theology. House was that was from the onion which is a satire. Yeah let me tell that story real quick it it by the way it's episode thirty eight called entertainment literature and Harry Potter. So I'm sure Jamal's probably too young but the rest of US I don't know I. I don't know Jamal Jamal Jamal. It's not our white privilege. It's it's our older privileged. See that's what elder older back in the in the early days of the Internet when you know we are all excited to get our emails and remember the remember how especially in the Christian community people but would pass on emails and you get all these chain emails okay and so several people had sent me this one about Harry Potter and in witchcraft. And how kids ended up embracing witchcraft. And I mean it sounded really bad. And my my sister-in-law's inlaws sent it to her. Like you can't do Harry Potter because of this Article Kids are becoming which is because of Harry Potter and so I was at Bible study one night and one of our friend said to me. Hey you get that harry potter email going around and.

"Oh I'll I'll say I do think I think Hey everyone just as we have a pastor. There was just speechless. Just for the record we just take time quickly. Tell if he's not no I think I think he is legit. I do too I think he might. He may get possibly shipwrecked if he does. I mean I think he's I mean I. I hope that Pastor Adem continues to disciple and that's what I said on my apologize live show is that I think a lot of this is going to be on Pastor Adem to say hey look you really shouldn't be going Joel Stein Church. You really really should be going to you know and I think that's what we may disagree some too because if he preaches the gospel like they've been doing concerts at Jolo Sin Church. No no there. We're going to be an agreement. I've always said I will go anywhere if they don't. I mean I got invited to speak at the flat. Earth Convention Dude if I could I you know they asked me for you. Know what do I WANNA speak on. I was like out of Isaiah that the world is a sphere for some reason. They didn't want me speaking. But maybe I should have been more deceptive title i. I'm always reminded you know. Want to and I know everybody may not be a fan of but Matt Chandler one of his most famous sermon is the moment where he says. You're not David someone I love that one so often I think we forget that he preached at Stephen Verdicts Church. Where they were talking about them being David and he did this in the middle of this conference? It's I think there could be good in moments like that. That's like everybody was kind of attacking in. I don't know much about bat and keep up with it Francis Chan for speaking. These different events was the different paramedics Initially didn't have a reservation against against it. Because if he was preaching the Gospel in those events would be a fantastic thing with his some of the way. He handled that question right. Comfort and Kirk Cameron and got a lot of question because they were on Tbn and there was the gospels going out. I mean there are so many. TBN people need a deer the Gospel and they were getting saved. So Oh But I think it's more if I'm I mean if I was at Joel scenes I wouldn't. I wouldn't have preached a Gospel. I'd be preaching against what he teaches and preach the gospel sort of thing I think and I think the point that I was making was is that we don't we attack attack heresy. We don't attack heretics so we we have to be careful of where we're drawing the line and my whole point about bringing people have you know we're all Christian's we all feed a clay I mean do we strike the proverbs from the Bible because King Solomon Straight in the later part of his life and took prostitutes and and let the Lord and but we have. What is it? Three books of the Bible that were written by King Solomon and David stumbled as well. I mean God put people who stumbled in the Bible so that we know that we don't have to be perfect. No those would think. Think about even the book of Jonah Right. The entire book is about a man running away from wig. Album is called him to do because he still disgruntled at at the end never story positive moment in Jonas life going for the time being so so even if you believe that some wasn't saved in the end I don't know I mean we honestly can't know what goes on if this charts only God does so. I think it's we need to be careful about judging people I I frankly we do have to judge what comes out of them their fruit. But whether or not there you know the end result of them is I think is really up to the spirit and up. God I mean. We can't look into their hearts like God camps so this is going to be completely different than what we're talking about Obama curious to your take on this. How should we handle movies? That tend to have an agenda behind him When I just to be pretty specific I think there's a lot of TV shows and things now or they're taking You know homosexuality and transgenderism and things of that nature in just making the part of the plot line. But they're making that the center of the plotline What's your thoughts on that? I don't like it anymore than anybody else does. In fact we we had this discussion on one of our recent podcasts. TRAE member which movie. We were talking about my co-host Tim was very upset about a social. Oh so justice issue that was prone the movie and yeah. I can't remember which movie was a recent it was a recent one Recent episode germ. Germany was something man Not Jimmy was the one one before that was an older movie. Oh Yeah D- Adjustment Beer. No I have never ever seen that movie but I did. Listen to the podcast so just for the record. You don't have to actually watch movies to learn how to think critically about movies and if you listen to you know. Are you just watching. You actually get to know a little bit about some of the movies I I watched some different shows on two different TV and that stock. DC TV shows woke. They they really are and the third so Nelson James is we. My wife and I tried watching We watched was it was like on Victoria or one of the Queens of in England and they had it was like a series so so two first season fine by the second season all of a sudden. They're throwing all kinds of you know they're all of a sudden. There was a scene with with you. Know Two guys guys in a in a girl and the world like this. Why well the interesting thing about that was was? It was historically true. I think they can handle that a lot better than they did but obviously they didn't for their re exactly but his historically did happen in so I can see why it was in the plot line but it could have been insinuated to some extent in left it up to the mixture of the mind rather learn how they we ended up. Turn that one off. I like this. I like the season into all of that happened. That's exactly what Martha you like. Why do we have to think we like more historical stuff Well I think the Honda loudest join. Well I just think your initial question was what do you do with that. And I think as Christians we have to make our decision as you know what there we want to watch chit or not whether because you have to remember that your viewership is a vote so when you watch something that that contains things in it that you don't like you're basically telling you know the producer of that you're voting in favor of it by watching it Amazon recently came out with something called the boys and I I watched the first episode of it and had so much bad stuff in it. I'm like I can't watch this and I actually put it out that I couldn't watch it. You know I put it out there. I wrote review you on one of their advertisements and I got blasted for having a conscience. But I'm like you have to let people know the reason why you're not gonNa Watch something something because it's your vote you know you're gonNa tell them. I'm glad you brought up by that show because I I was seeing the on the previews reviews for and it looked interesting actually watching it. I was thinking I actually watching us. Now okay superheroes cool doing this thing and then but then Dan when you said that no that makes sense. We're in this culture you know it's like it's given you know so as good. I'm glad you actually brought that up. I mean the whole concept of the boycott of not buying the things that offend and you I think as Christians. We just need to be careful of what we're voting for when our consumer ship In in our culture is like if if you're GONNA go watch a rated R. movie that means to your voting for them to produce more rated R movies if you watch a show that is very Progressive assist its ideals and and very open about. You know things that you disagree with and you continue to watch it then. You are voting in favor of them producing more contact tail like that. So lemass this. Did you watch friends or do you watch for instance. No no I haven't okay. It was fairly old show And so in that show in this time period would have been part progressive Second or third third season one of the main characters. Wife lazing for another woman and it's kind of intertwined throughout the show But it's it's not the main thought on the show. Oh you know. It's not the the main driving moment Were you see some of the shows and movies out. Now that's the kind of like the heart behind it. Like when I was so my with C w they came out with that woman which I'm not huge fan about women by those interesting with the whole reason she becomes a bad woman just because she's a lesbian and drive. Yes yes and that was the drive to in so like can watch it. Would you say there's a difference between what we can or should shortage. Should not watch the drive behind rather than just in passing or at think. That's for you to make the decision where you draw the line clearly. He doesn't listen to your podcast chest because I knew that was coming to a few so so let me throw this out to tweak what you're saying what about a movie like Star Wars where it was to teach a religious view of the force this eastern mysticism could you you know with that fall into the city. That's where I thought you were going to go with it when you start it until you you know it was like oh I definitely. I don't approve of people who try to take star wars and turn it into a Christian story. I've I've heard people do that. You know try to try. Tried to turn it into the Gospel. The Gospel according to Star Wars. I definitely wouldn't do that. I would reveal a star wars movie and I would point out where they're say heading false ideas and and then use that to present the Gospel as they counter.

"Trying to think about Where AH opposition may come from? And that's honest. I think somebody could use this as well. Hey you know especially to those are household. Fay So like you say like how would that play out. You you know Is that the example where Andrew talking about where the Christian brother is now doing work for free anyway. He's not GonNa get paid as much or where they get paid more. Are you know because you're doing especially well to them. So you're doing more than what they would. Normally charge is being more general and even if they don't do the best job you know not looking for the best work with the fact that they are of also to say you know with our. I don't agree with that. You know of cues. If one of the job done you should look for to be good. All right I'll give you an example Like a guy reached out to me passer and I I used to do on. Not really deep graphic design work but I will do. I can make a banner not can make flyers and stuff like data and. I'm pretty okay with Photoshop. And so he hit me up when you design a banner form you know and And I guess because he's a Christian and because he's a pastor I was on a charge them much because my be charging charging about else and he paid He wanted me to hang it up. And so so Charge them for that but the thing is he wanted me to make do a miracle which I don't have the expertise when it comes to hanging stuff I you know Niimi nail in some would I make it work but I'm not like the type of measure everything to make sure it's completely center. That's not me you know and I and I explained that to them. I say you know I hang you for you just you want it and I will we try to put it there. You know and charge based on that and so he had these brick walls and he wanted me to to drill a hole in his walls and I told him I refuse fuse do it because I was like I. I'M NOT GONNA draw the holding your wall because I could mess it up and You know an ESA holding a brick wall you know and can be seen now emission Walla. So so he was. Okay well US wherever you can so I found something he so I knew would not work us. Work has like okay. Houston he wanted hanging outside whereas wind was blowing raining and I was okay. He some real estate and I hung that Ben wrote the best we could and when it failed down he was upset and he called me. He's like Banfield. I said what I told you. All I told you we'll follow you. Know he's like well. I need what I'm GONNA do. We'll see if you've got a brother and a church. You may know how to hang it up. I said I can't do that. Where as now? That's an example of. Hey you want US might do to range no loot somebody who could do it and people in the pay but I I'm I don't do that kind of work. Well what maybe when one thing that we can. Do you said like you do graphic design. Maybe you hear that someone when in your congregation. That doesn't have a lot of money. Really needs some graphic design and you go to them and say hey you know I. I have some free time the Saturday maybe that can help you. And maybe that's one way that we approach that I guess you know like And I think a lot of people do those those sorts of things. My my friend's husband is a carpenter and if someone in their church needs something done it's not necessarily coming to him saying hey. Can you come do this for free. But here's there is a need and says you know what I've got Saturday afternoon off and I'm GonNa go help this family. My Church Eve what do you thank you. There's a couple of guys who do that their mechanics and they have a shop in Samoa. They know that they don't advertise. Fix your car for trading. But they will if they know you need it. I mean they might tell you know just by the part apart. We'll do the rest but they do that. Because they like mechanical work. So what you think you've been. He's the one that I have to try to pull it into the conversation. She sunk all quiet not on her own show though not quite not quiet. Quiet quiet one the last throw down. I would say that a worker is worth his higher Regardless of whether he's working for somebody in the world working for somebody in the church If he wants to donate his services that's on him but if you would have to look at whether he has another source of income to be meeting his personal needs and the needs of his family I know like I work in ministry so I get paid for doing ministry and you know. I don't expect to do it for free at nine. Not Not expected to do it for free and because that's my source of income and that's how God provides for my needs But I do donate design work to my church when they ask for it. I don't charge my church for that because I consider it. A service to the Lord A fellow fellow Christian. who asked me to do something from my Church Fellow Body member? I would probably Do something like I had a gentleman gentleman in my church. Asked me to help him with his logo and I did. And and his business was a fudge. Business nicest just Amien Fudge so a it could be fattening so I you know I figure it can be a little bit of a bartering. It can be a little bit of meeting people's needs as as you can I have a my accountant is a is a member of my church and I pay her what she charges for her counting services so I don't expect her to do it for free and So yeah I just think that. In that instance that you know when you're using your what God's given you as gifts you can choose and be sensitive to the leading of the spirit whether you ask for money or whether you do it as a service to the body into the Lord. So let's let's let's ask this as a change of topic here and I'll start off with eve leave because your show will lead into actually so there is debate. Can Christians go and watch in when you use the term secular and sacred that to kingdom discussion. Because I think it's easier for us to understand it but can Kenna Christian go and watch a secular alert movie were should. Should Christians only be watching Christian movies. So this this also goes for music it goes was for for art. Goes for a whole lot of things But I want to start off with with that one now with you because I think I know your position is going to be because if if you say no it's wrong your whole podcast and being kind of an issue because it's on secular movies pretty much. Yeah well I think that that is a a Definitely something that you have to be spirit led on if if you're sinning by Spending time in the world in certain ways that are going to be leading you astray in a leading and become a problem and we dealt with this even in our last throwdown where we were talking about. You know being a stumbling block for weaker Christians and in that kind of thing there's lots of Ways that you can personally draw the line on how much of the world you step into. But Christ himself said that you need to be in the world but not of the world and if you're or not if you're not of the world then you're following his following half of it but if you're also not in the world then you're disobeying disobeying and because we have to be out there and the the purpose of my podcast isn't to lead Christians into secular doctrine and the whole point of my podcast is to how to Approach secular things from a Christian worldview to be able to have discernment when you are approaching the world and being in the world that you're not just Turning your your biblical filter off just letting the world in the culture of the world influnce wants you because if you can do it with movies than you can do it with other things you can do it with the news you can do it with Your education you can do. It was with all kinds of things. It's just teaching yourself how to use the discernment that God is giving you anyone. Anyone else want wages on on that one. I mean should we as Christians we are there. Are there things where we shouldn't be going. Should it be. The Christians. Only see Christian movies put out by Christians and all even emphasize more and you can also answer this. What defines Christian does it have to have the Gospel to be Christian or can it be Christian and it's not share? The Gospel let me produce way. Everyone knows Mr Rogers. I've never met him but will they know blessing as TV. Shows of some of the kid. he did preached a Gospel on his shows. But everyone could tell he would if he didn't know oh he went to Ordain Minister. You could tell. His show is free. Kids had the gospel message. And even even though he didn't say ultra call. Come down here now heading. I think that we can certainly Live our lives is and enjoy a culture around us without participating in it and and the way we do participate and keep will realize. Is that something different that we would not doing. Certain things right saying certain things. We don't use certain words you behavior though. Were not that way tomorrow on that. Well where we are the light of the world right as as Christians. I think eve I appreciate your show because You know I think a lot about. I'm not a big movie person. Sometimes I listened to your show just to learn about a movie but and you'll you'll even look at. Is there any Christian themes here. Different things like that and I'll sometimes before we go see a movie. Go and read about it. How much bad language is it is an aunt or is there any sexual content and if there is my husband and I don't go and see it and so definitely I think? I think that we have liberty. But we don't have liberty to do things that would be contrary to the Lord and what is good and so like I i. I'll go and see a secular movie but I'm not going to see his secular movie if it has sexual situations in it for instance I would say to his people go to the movies. It'd be entertained. Move entertaining the Nisa Joyful and I was listening to a podcast bill with this issue recently and they were saying the reason why Christian movies are so terrible because because you know you go you get peppered with the application L-.

Yeah I was fighting with the Would you pro war own own hours and I wasn't privy to who the actors worse farce on what they they've various people who were to faith and all that stuff I have any idea. NC Bardo Oh so now like I kind of want to go in and see who aren't look look them up because I only let's see Justin Peters put out a Article about it so I knew who who is interested in. Yeah I'm with I guess also awful music as well like there's so always waiting to me easy or sent away into music it's like there's a A Christian meanwhile he used to be a Christian rap artist named J givens and he recently You came home sexual and And he's still doing music. He still doing music but he had older music. And this has been a debate. I think I had in having last year. Still the Juries Aland as far as my thoughts on it like when he was we knew what we believe that he was in the face he was He was under a humble beast. The Record Label You know as we listen to the hours then and so the question was was it wrong. Still listen to his older music. Though we know now he's come out you know and even though he's still making music so not support in the new stuff where is it wrong to still listen to the old you know and and hear what you guys are saying here is like I wonder. I wonder if listened to the old still gives validity to say over. You know what because he had this is talent and because we had these leary's he you know he could be okay you know. Oh He may not be as bad as as making it seem to be on with his turn knows. I don't know just a Carolina let me let me tweak that a little bit more because this may be similar as well do you. Do you recommend a read books from Joshua Harris. Now say say say you agreed with you. Know the what he wrote in his books now that he's come out and said he's not a believer. Could you still recommend those books even even if the the books even if you believe everything that they taught were true or biblically. True would even not to keep twists and an additional question. But what do we do with the PURITANS. And what do we do with the him riders in the different people. That wrote most of the songs that we're seeing churches that had some kind of slave background or The different things of that nature That's for that same question fall Often line and there is what what do you do in those moments. You still seeing those hymns though they've had some grievous sins in the lives or it will I think one one of the even TREMENDOUS WANNA luther. Luther wrote a song. That was the tune of it was from a bar a a bar song and people were. They were taken from modern ways of seeing in Christian words to them so but in the Jonathan John John. Wesley did a lot of that as well on Easter today backed into so. It's kind of like preaching a sermon series on the movie jaws right same thing. I would definitely uh-huh weekends at the movie. But anyway the pasture silent me out and if we saw the congress is about to say you you tell which was. Here's pastors Jason. An come out we. We don't know Kristen's hot button. Is You know and I know the movies with Eve Rap Music Jamal. Anything the only preaching I would james. I'd Kristen I I don't know I can jump in there with Joe Jamal with the rap music so so okay I thought or Chris where are you going to say San now. Go ahead if you've been so quiet.

"And try to research the shower. The movie I and figure out why it's rated what it's rated and also Yeah just their personal You're lying where it's at Like for example We don't watch much isn't I mean yeah the is any worse than PG thirteen but Like if there's too much swearing or even just saying Oh my dod you know That's taking the Lord's name in vain in and it deeply offends me like I physically feel like ill almost sometimes from hearing things like that and I just. I can't do it so that's my line so I just think that's sort of a personal thing but also then to be aware of WHO's uh-huh surrounding you like we have three teenage daughters and so were in the phase right now of of monitoring everything's that they're watching and taking in and critically thinking about everything so Yeah and with Jamal Said I. I remember I pass from union is going back like thirty years now I used to watch a lot of. TV's I used to. I used to be because that's all I did. I used to just sit and watch movies career and I remember. He came over my apartment and I was talking to him and the TV was on and I was. It was playing a movie tango and cash. If any of you know that the history of that one and I'm I'm sitting there telling him that I'm struggling with like with revenge like when pill do wrong to me. I want to get revenge. And he just looked at me he looked over at the TV pointed to TV and Said said where do you think you might be getting that from. And the whole theory of Tango and cash is these two guys back and I'm like boy almost all the movies. I watch like action movies. Where you're you're the the there's revenge theme to it? I'm like Oh yeah and that's what really got me to go. Maybe I shouldn't be watching. These things will be the best best for me But but let me throw this out as as discussion. See where you guys since we kind of all agree on that maybe there'll be disagreement here One of the one of the Christian movies that they did review on. Are you just watching. is war room and I had. I did not like war room and I haven't liked anything that they've done since war room because not because of the content but the actors themselves who who they played because this is a Christian film and they're bringing in people who would be heretics and in who you know word of faith people you've You've well Beth. More wouldn't be word of faith yet. She's Kinda on past thing. But you have Beth. Moore's been in their movies movies you have Was Priscilla Shriver has been in their movies So they're trying to get people that have a platform but some of them are in a platform that I don't think we'd say as Orthodox Christianity when you're getting people were faith what do you think about that is is. Is it wrong I I I take the position. I won't go watch my favorite movie of all time is fireproof done by the Kendrick brothers. But I won't watch anything else now that they put out because they're starting to bring people who are who I wouldn't say are in the faith as they actors. I'd like to hear some thoughts on that I. I don't know Valu if I will be as concerned with the actors as far as as far as what they're yeah portraying Yeah because I like something Jiang said earlier like you have some Some Christian television shows and movies. That aren't it sound. You know so. It's like no so the content sound yet. No the actors who may be aren't sound but is content. We'll see within the contradiction to have them doing something that isn't well. Let me let me specify so so I'm clear with it because my my issue is not that it's just I mean they can have an unsaved Aker. I mean comfort They they put a movie together audacity and they did not have believers they had professional actors. They weren't believers but they sharing the gospel with those people all the time when I still watch that. Well Yeah I guess the issue I have with with the Kendra brothers are doing now. Is They have people who are word of faith eighth. And they're bringing them in to be actors or actresses because they have a platform in you know it's it's because of the platform that they're you're becoming the actor or actress and I think what it does is it. It blurs the line for Christians to say. Oh I like this person because she played this in this movie. I'M GONNA go check out. What Personal Schreiber you know is is in her ministry and find out more about arcing? And that's where I I guess Ah Eve was saying. I don't WanNa give my money to support that. Yeah and then promote here to promote take that what I would think is. Heresy kind of is very similar to this idea and I know this is getting into a different conversation but much like hip. Listen to amused from hill song or some of these other guys are questionable. They're putting out. They may release something. That's nascent ain't good. But in supporting one of their songs or something of that. Nature supporting their entire ministry with. They're doing as a whole kind of like that. You're afraid that has added more to the full night. Yeah Yeah I mean that's an I mean I i. He's going to bring up the music after we've read this you to segue there but yeah I mean I have the same thing I won't. I don't want to sing haled's song because people I mean even if they have a couple of good songs it's not the good ones that I'm concerned about. It's all the ones that are. It's what they teach and people go and follow him and start to you. Know to look up. Oh Look Oh hell song and then get into all that stuff you get so basically given validity to what they're doing and you know I I understand completely how would say that I'd be more concerned about it when it comes to music. I wouldn't the movie itself do you what you're saying that but I I would be more concerned with music mainly kiss in a maybe just the way I watch movies but I don't get caught up on. Who's acting what I'm more focused on the story? Line or to specific thing going on in the movie itself rather than who's acting that character so okay then then James Ask you do you D- would you have the same position with health song as he was on the movie. We well if you will either a movie or if like someone was to want to come to your church and they wanted to so low and it's a hill song song even though that one's on his decent Well we still get into ticket into the music side of it though. That's saying like I'm more concerned about the music that would be about the the movie itself might movies in general but it's because this is more of a on more of the nose on when it comes to music. I am the movies mop personality.

"Or not with a believer versus unbeliever in in regard of the unbeliever. I would say just so that you are making sure that And not only our personal reputation but the reputation of Christ is not You know taken through the mud and Destroyed for them so that would be my thought. I guess I guess the thing with which I mean we. Jamal mentioned cigars. Ars We mentioned Christmas with Mitch Call. We will probably see engine a bunch more but it ultimate think it comes down to our attitude right. It's I mean to me. It seems like it's are are we seeking to honor. God Are we seeking to love. Her brothers are we seeking to not put a stumbling block. not a a bunch of dues. I mean like I had a you know. Granted you guys pride and grow up in fundamentalist churches. I remember a guy who came in my home and saw that I had a TV and and basically said I wasn't saved because of TV the devil. Well it's basically it was. It's he had a checklist straight and so to be a Christian this this year you you don't watch movies or certain movies you don't want in his case it was any movie Pri- I don't know what he would do with like some of the Christian Christian movies that come out but you know just having a TV was enough. And so I think I think people set up these these rules because it's easier. It's easier to follow rules. I mean if liberality and legalism are easy they require no thinking right L- legalism. It's a checklist. You either do this or you don't do this you you don't have to think about liberality everything goes you do whatever you want but the truth is kind of in the middle where I think we struggle. That's why it's we talk about Christian Liberty. We struggle over. Can I do this us. Is it wise to do this. And there's you know I remember my pastor. Gave like a fourteen point checklist. When it comes Christian Liberty I should have pulled that out for this discussion Russian but there were things you ask You Jamal you asked about. You know you mentioned the cigars and that was one of the examples we give smoking cigarettes is it. Is it a sin. And you know and he'd go. We go through this list. He'd always do this with folks that they see okay. Does it glorify God. That was one of the things does it. 'cause my brother to stumble. You're he just had all these scripture verses that go along with these things but things for us to ask ourselves because I think the I think the biggest struggle with the issues they talk about when it comes to Christian Liberty is. There's some people who not all people some people who do these things because they they want to satisfy their flesh and and they want to say well under grace. What do you guys think? That's an accurate statement. Oh Yeah Yeah. We're supposed to be representing Christ not representing the world. So if your habits that you are partaking in is too and you you claim quote unquote that it's Christian liberty but it's making you look more like the world then like Christ than maybe going doing for the wrong reason. Not because because you can because it's liberty under Christ but because you didn't WanNa give it up that aspect of the world that you Enjoy so much and it becomes an idol in your life without even realizing it I think it goes to the similar extent of what we see in the Corinthian churches urges. The whole thing was idle worship and so often we may not think of in the same light of it but before we knew Christ we worship something in writing for some it could be alcohol for some it could be tobacco for some could be movies or whatever the case may be whatever form of liberty we're going to put into that category in so we could be going onto idols in our lives. Is We try to hold onto these aspects of our lives. I don't think that's always the case with somebody holding onto liberties. I know plenty of brothers in Christ said participate in alcohol and tobacco. That didn't do before they knew creek. Jesus and then even knew it before a certain point of their lives in so I don't think there's always the case but I think it could be the case. Let's let's do. Let's do a topic that Eve will be a perfectly set up for what about movies. What can are there? Some people would say you can't watch any R. rated movies can we. You say that you know like I know You know todd. Friel won't watch already movie. What do you do when you have passion of the Christ? Do you go watch that. I think he didn't even know why they give it our radio but You know do. Can you watch R. a-rated movies or is that something that's just sinful and of the world I think I'm teeing this one up more for Eve because she thinks she has a podcast on things. Like maybe there's something something movies or something like. Are you just watching. When she goes into it I'll say this? I think there's a lot of Christian movies we shouldn't see but anyway. Oh okay well. You can't just drop that bombshell walkaway. So which which Christian movie shouldn't we see We're one a lot of them are just terrible. I'm just GONNA throw out my opinion. They're not produce well bad acting. I think we've seen an uptake in that in the last few years but there is some. I mean if you get on Netflix and things of that nature and look at some of the Christian movies that they have on there. There's some that are just theologically. Unsound Sound in quite dangerous in a lot of choice and so I think even things that are portrayed is good we should be on watch for. We don't Typically Review Christian movies we've had requests for that on occasion we've done one or two in the past But the whole oh point of our podcast is to point out number one where things are leading you astray from Christ and number two. How Christ is represented and things? Even when the people making the movie definitely did not have the intention of portraying Christ It does happen. Believe it or not you can can usually really He is the Creator in. He's he's president and everybody even when they are denying he exists but it's On the topic of what movies you should watch rated R.. I personally do not go to see rated R movies But my reason for it is not necessarily because excoriated are is like this line crossing suddenly sin. It's more of a of a market thing. It's like. I am not going to give them money for. They're rated R. movie because that encourages them to make more rated R movies and I would prefer to use my my vote in the marketplace to vote for things that are more family friendly so I won't pay them to watch rated R.. Movie would you go see say passion of the Christ. I did not go see passionate. Christ I did eventually see it but I did not pay to see it. I see now if you really want to be. If you WANNA be Jewish like me you go to your local library I bere- get them all for free if you WANNA watch movie. Oh sorry okay let in light of that Liam asks this. Would you say that that would fall into the modern ratings or the ratings in which the movie was released and what I mean by that for example like jaws rawls jaws is now rated. PG If you look it up and but when it was released he was ready to are really. Yeah and to take into consideration though rating systems are arbed completely arbitrary here in the. US movie that traded art here could be PG thirteen in Canada. Yeah well I I the reason I bring up the passionate of crisis because it would. They made it rated R.. Because they wanted less people to sit right. That was the reason so it was like. Oh yeah there's violence but There was an emmy so it is somewhat arbitrary. Yeah Yeah I don't know to put it on the rating it. As far as the would it contains. What is the The issues going on We're talking about alcohol no would you shall we You strongly rage anger Latin. You probably shouldn't be watching anything being built without a murder. Oh you know. Are you struggling with less. You should be watching out for nudity. You know Is it a my fellow saints with because most times when they do give a raise let you know being portrayed in the movie leaving like you mentioned with The Passion of Christ even though it is violence. You know it ain't like like is it ain't scarface violence you know so it's Is Different so I don't know that that's my own as far as no. What are you personally dealing dealing with? You know Jamal I would. I would completely agree with you on that because When we first started our podcast we had an entire episode? We did on where we draw the line nine and that was all My current co hosted the time Daniel Lewis and I will both had different things that we would draw the line on based on what we we struggle with spiritually. So you have to be aware of where your struggles are and be conscious of that. You're not feeding those struggles. I think the other side of that though is this is one in my opinion. That's big on washing out for our brothers and sisters in Christ because it's easy to throw on a movie or TV show for that matter And be watching something that we were perfectly fine with that. It might not be good for brother sister in Christ all right because sometimes we may get used to something. That's just in the background on the backdrop drop of the room or whatever the case may be but it may not be beneficial for them. Kristen what do you think you're you're quite one of the group here right Yeah I agree with what Jamal said. I think it depends on what you're.

"For and she. She told me she was offended. That I can do this myself. And I'm like I'm I'm just trying to be polite like you know. So now they know what I've got an open doors right but then someone may be offended if I don't open the door. How do you decide a question about as you're saying the Andrew is Is Something James said as well is into enrollments and Corinthians Wrentham we have these situations here in Corinthians we have issues one stumbling whether or not they gonNA fall inside the sacrifice idols and so it they they see you eating of this meeting. Noah's sacrifice is does it make them think okay to worship is item you know e as eaten worship because eating the meeting yourself itself is it. The sand is the fact that it was sacrificed to an item. But then in the Romans passes you have someone who's offended at liberty by you know no one person. Thanks okay to eat meat. A person's of budgetary in. But why would you judge the one who eats and doesn't he so wanted to finish what you do versus somebody actually stomach sin as I wonder if and I'm wondering when it comes to liberty is are we are we. Should we be focused at the one who's offended at our liberty or I. We should be concerned with the one who stumbles because of the liberty. Yeah I think it's a matter. Yeah I think it's a matter of WHO's the weaker brother because if we go go on the topic of what offends people. I think that that is a completely different topic. The Christian liberty in the offensive a weaker brother. This is somebody who you could lead away from. The Gospel lead astray into a life that that puts God below other things and so the hello edifying and building up of our fellow. Christians is not providing things that would cause them to go down a false. What's path in in relation to their walk with the Lord? We don't want to lead them down a false path and so I don't think you take take it as to the extreme of Oh that offend somebody. So I'm never going to do that. It's more of being able to sit down and disciple somebody and say. Hey you know if this if this is a serious problem with your walk walk with the Lord seeing me do this then I will do away with that habit ball. I am being a disciple or disciples recycling you and your walk with the Lord. Because I know that that's a stumbling block three so I think it's more of a personal commitment to the believers that we are personally disciple Ling and leading on the path of righteousness towards Christ. I don't think it can be a general thing in that it just anybody my out. There might be offended by what we're doing we could be easily become very legalistic in that aspect where just start setting a bunch of rules that were following and then we're following rules and we're showing other people to follow rules. Instead of following Christ in the consciences that the Holy Spirit gives us working in our lives in the whole point of being a believer is not not following rules but being sensitive to the spirit and following the truth of scripture and deciphering weekly weaker brothers and sisters has to be able to show them The difference between following a rule and following your conscience as prompted by the Holy Spirit. Yeah I think that's right on with that idea because I think if my sister specifically talking about alcohol I think if the area I'm in so I'm poly can any of you say that you live in a dry town or do you even know what a dry town is. I know I know where to drive. Down is but I'm not in one colleague. I mean maybe maybe if I went up to Utah let's probably the Tri State. It's humid here. I have there's so many churches in my general area that they average covenant that says that they will abstain from the use or the sale of alcohol and some of them were even site tobacco consumption And so it's quite interesting And I have a good friend of mine that he's he's a minister and he you know he he doesn't he thinks it's a matter of conscience he had no issue participating in drinking of alcohol and Like Jamal was getting earlier. He did in the prophecies home and he took it pastor of a church in that was their understanding that was the covenant it's discharge Chat And I think he was a great example of how we to handle a situation like that and never joined a church in SORTA pastoring churches gave up his liberty for the sake of his brothers and sisters in Christ and But in this area such a big thing and I think like eve was alluding to there. Is that in. This area is taking so legalistic and is taken to the far far extreme And that's why I mean. I know I'm not GonNa go all that well. No I think you've really hit the nail on the head of what I wanted to get to. Before the show ended which is with any of the issues Christian Liberty I think is very easy to get into legalism. And that's when we just have that checklist you don't do. This don't do this. Don't do this or you do this. You do this like I'm being a little bit more. Maybe legalistic by saying I wouldn't. I don't think it's wise in America to have alcohol in the Lord's Supper But I'm saying if someone's someone's GonNa do it in their own home at you know own to see a difference everybody because at Church Service. I just think that's gotta be that's public. It's for for all but even think hit on the nail on the head with the point that it's really about our heart attitude. I think that's what you see. In both those passengers the Romans in the first in First Corinthians it's our attitude toward our brother not the loss personally one of Angela's but the hard attitude we have toward our fellow brother sister that we we have concern for them. Can we accidentally caused someone to stumble sure but our heart attitude isn't to try to cause them to stumble. I mean there are people there like you know just man up you got to mature. You're GonNa you know it's like well no We we shouldn't be doing that right. The Bible tells us whatever is not done on. A faith is saying though that they're not doing phase. We know that manning up ain't gonNA help them And it's funny you said that Andrew but the the not the lost person trying to evangelize our brother because it's interesting about t- before and We'll talk a while ago. There's a brother as a Christian but I know when I know we're talking alcohol it just goes on a liberty is whether it was making a big deal about celebrating Christmas and You know saint is rooted in paganism if our the symbolism of the trees. He's an artist stuff like that and I know you don't worry about it Andrew but like it's interesting because he gets offended at it. I remember telling him. We'll we'll have a conversation baas like this. He was like people. Don't come to church like their an African American contracts are black. People don't come come to Christian churches because they say well no you're not woken for one is consciousness and then you're celebrating paganism so therefore I keep you for even come into your churches and I was like well. This might me celebrate Christmas and thinking about seeing that liberty as far as that concern is not about them. You know if I got a brother in Christ who who is struggling for some reason he sees my Christmas tree and feels like he's wants a worship and a guy that had nothing to do with Christmas tree the desert issue there in Berlin crisis stumbling there but I don't I don't see that play out you know and There's been this. I was actually excited. We weed was going to do this. podcast because this conversation is gonNA come up again. Skin holidays rolling around and everything else and And we're going to discuss some more or a Liberty our liberty. I guess I'm just going to. I want to give some as while I'm saying this but I wanted to just out and again just for clarity clarity. So when it comes Christian liberty where Are we should be talking about where we focus on those who are fin- versus our brother in Christ but what about the one who we are trying to events is like no. We discussed liberty to even go there. Do even worry about that at all concerning those were evangelizing versus are are already brothers and crisis assassin. Christ I think it depends on the context. You're trying to evangelize for example. The share the Gospel about it that for the sake of the conversation. We've been having this. An alcoholic. Obviously the best way of sharing the Gospel Gospel with him as popular beside him on the bar. So enjoy your your beer. You know what I'm saying And so I think that just being intelligent with our context of how we share the Gospel with somebody I think that's important in that And so it depends on that individual in your relationship to them. I think that's part of it. And now big says because when she vans that is at Berlin. By God's Grace Delors as as him or her. Then you'll be stated from in any way of not wanting to stumble exactly if you do your job as a follower follower of cross you're GonNa take that individual teach them how to follow Christ and disciple them so you're going to have to pull away from whatever that is that was their issue anyway Ci used to get the reverse Because I grew up Jewish my wife grew up nothing. We never had Christmas tree. And I I have people in Churchill over my the house and be like you need a Christmas tree and I always tell people I said if you can give me one reason why I need a Christmas tree other the fact that you grew up with one. I'll get one and I just watched I after I and go. Yeah 'cause they thought. I needed a Christmas tree because they grew up with one. I'm like yeah I think you need a Minora Minora in your house my wife and I've you've been married six years and When I big that aspect of Christmas people in so I think out of the six years we've been married. We've put up a tree twice in last year was one of them just for the simple fact that my niece was going to be there and hers. She's too in so you know there's something they we do so we did it for her And so and we don't necessarily Christian liberty or anything of that I think is interesting. Yeah I did get a Christmas tree just because my kids wanted it but now that they're out of the house they don't come visit. It won't go up Kristen. You've been really quiet. What are your thoughts? You celebrate Christmas. You WanNa thankfully do Christmas trees and candles. Yes yeah It's been an interesting discussion and yeah I've been thinking about Like you were talking about the difference between.

We may end up discussing the liberty to have to say. Let's hold off on when a celebrity claims. He's he's a Christian. Is it okay to hold off before he becomes a worship leader because boy did people get in trouble just for saying maybe we should wait on that. That could be a Christian liberty issue but I wanna read a Romans fourteen just to set the stage for us. This is what Paul talks about when it comes to basic passing judgment on on others Dealing with things of food he says as for the one one who is weak in faith. Welcome him but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he made anything wall. The week person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who who abstains and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats for God has welcomed him who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another. It is before his own master that he stands and falls and will be upheld old for the Lord is able to make him stand another passage just to set the stage for us is in First Corinthians teens chapter ten versus twenty three to thirty and it says all things lawful but not all things are helpful all things are lawful but not on all things build up. Let no-one seek his own good but the good of his neighbor eat. Whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the grounds of conscience for the Earth is the Lord's and.
