"You know, it doesn't generally happen in a in a form like that where we spent, you know, 30 or 40 minutes over a cigar. Talking about it, but But, you know, it's a It's a deeply personal thing. When you start thinking about what's on your credit and what needs to get done. I can't tell you how many people I've talked to over the years. Uh, you know whether it be over, you know, at the cigar shop or I'm out and I meet friends and someone hears about who I am or what I do, and Um, you know, generally someone will pull me aside and say Hey, listen. I think that I need your help. Eat, all embarrassed, and this happened Or that happened. We'll see the same thing. Listen, you know all I do all week long. Deal with people that have credit issues all I do all week long. Look at credit reports and figure out how we're going to get those credit reports fixed. Right, So there's nothing to be embarrassed about, but what you do have to do if you want it. You know to get better. You've got to step up, right? You've got to say Hey, listen. Listen, You don't have the opportunity to meet me in person, necessarily without booking an appointment. You know, it's not like you know, Michael and I sitting down to discuss this But the reality is it's no different. You know, you're in a position where you need help. All you have to do is pick up that phone and text us write or call us. Phone number again. By the way, if you're thinking about doing that, seven Oh 2778 2000. Right And just say, Listen, I need help. I heard the show and I'm embarrassed or whatever it is. I don't ever ask questions about what happened. A lot of people will say to me. Listen, Here's what happened. I'm embarrassing Mobile and I always stop. People always say Listen, the details of how you got to where you are today. Mine is picking up the phone call to say hate, Harry, You need help. Are unimportant to me. Right. What's important to me is that you made it to me. What's important is that you woke up today. Or tomorrow or Monday or whatever, and you say, Listen, this is the day That I'm going to get some help. Then I'm gonna get my arms around. A lot of people say I looked at their credit after I've given them information on how to polar report. I'll say, you know, Let's talk about your credit. What did you see when you were in there and and they say the same thing? It's you know, it's it's almost laughable, right? They'll say, You know, I didn't want to look how horrible you look. You tell me. Right, well It's not that bad. Find myself saying that more often than not, it's not that bad. Not that bad at all. One of the other things that came up In this discussion. If you're just catching the show a minute late. I'm talking about this friend of mine named Michael. Per nut. You know, last handful years we've developed a good close friendship. We hang out at dinner. You know, go out with the girls, you know periodically and have little dinners and smoke cigars and all that stuff. Um You know, he began to question me on Things he was hearing on the show. He listens to the show. And and one of the things he brought up was credit card balances right? That was One of those where you know what came out of his mouth was kind of an old school thing, And it's true, You know, people of a certain generation. Would say. Treat the credit card like you treat cash. If you don't have the money to buy something, don't put it on the card. Right, and it may sound crazy to you. Listen, put it on the card and get miles. If you know you're going to have the money to pay it, just pay it but do not Accumulate that Right. Don't do that. I mean, we've We've had this discussion with you, Meaning you the person that's listening to this program right now. If you're someone that's got, you know, 7 50 credit and you've got a credit card. That's $5000 in terms of a limit. And you, Max that card out. It will take you. 110 points down, Probably It's crazy. You go, 7 52 6. Maybe 45. Or lower Right. It's simple. And when I started to explain that to him again, the look on his face was just You know he was befuddled. But that's the power of revolving credit. It's 30% of your score when you look at how credit reports are scored. Five different items that go into it. I'm not going to go into Fico scoring now, but the first two are our most important 35% of your scores based upon how you pay your bills. Course that would make sense. And then the next number two 30% of your score. It's based on how you handle your credit card balances. It's simple. My my my response to people on credit card stuff all the time is keep those balances low. Periodically. Someone will call me and go. Hey! I got this money coming in. I got some credit card debt, but I get the car and I'm gonna pay the car off. Bless you. No, no, no. What are you doing? Someone said, Well, I read it online. I don't like Don't confuse your Google searching. Or what some friend tells you. With what we know. What I mean, You know, this is You know, this is one of those things. When you You know, we're trying to get your your financial fiscal health back in order. You've got $5000 credit card billing, you five grand on your car. The credit card bill. Unless the car is just some outrageous interest. Higher interest in the credit card is Right, But if you care about score, that's the way to do that. Don't ever pay an installment loan off. Leave credit card balances. If you care about score. That's important. So anyway, I spent four years I've spent 12 minutes talking to you about 13 minutes talking to you about it right now. On this program, But we went through a whole bunch of stuff because he listened to the show and and wanted to talk about things that he had heard. And it's you know, it's my pleasure to do that. But Keep those credit card balances low. Do do what Michael Purna set right? Treat the credit card like cash. If I don't have the money to buy it, I don't put it on the credit card. Simple. Couple of other things that are going on that I want to touch on this week. Credit card lawsuits are ramping up. If you're someone that Didn't pay credit card bill and went to collections in particular. The company. Credit one bank. They're a lender kind of a second tier lender. That put a lot of cards out there suing consumers now. Seen five or six of them in the last 60 days. Just over 1000 bucks, right? They're going to town. They hand their accounts over to portfolio recovery. Portfolio recovery or You know, l B NV collections one of those companies. They turn around the higher law firm. And that law firm will sue you. Take you to court. You need to make sure you are on. I got to apologize. By the way I'm doing the show at home this week. I can hear my dog eating in the background. 85 85 people. And only doesn't eat. I can hear his little chain hitting the ball. Max. I apologize for that. Um So these credit card lawsuits are ramping up. And this is one of those things that I want you to be aware of, because if you're being sued The worst thing you can do is not show up. I've explained this. I've used this analogy a lot over the years. It's one of the consistent analogies I make when consumers getting soon If you don't show up at court. When you're getting sued. Because you think you're going to lose or whatever you're going to lose. It's a forfeit. It's like a little league when you know or any sporting event when, when You know, Teams get together. Baseball team shows up. One team's got nine guys. The other one's got 55 they forfeit. They couldn't put a team together to play..
The Federal Government Abuses Its Power With Mandates
"Mandates. The federal government. The federal government has demonstrated time and again that it abuses its power. When he goes off. The constitutional limits. It abuses its power. We also see that it uses its its power. In ways that advantage certain people and certain political entities versus others. We see it every day. January six versus the entire summer of violence, rioting, looting, arson and maiming. So people don't trust the federal government and they don't trust the media. They don't trust broadcast companies. They don't trust them. If the federal government And its surrogates and mouthpieces had a record. Of even handedness of accuracy. Maybe we wouldn't be in this situation. Russia collusion goes on for three years. Three years. And the other The other arguments that the That the Democrat Party the media make Then when you look at the conduct of government over the course of the last 12 to 18 months Whether it's governors. Whether it's mayors. Weather is so called experts like Fauci, whose flailing around One excuse after another. People are very skeptical. About these so called experts in these demands. Many have lost their jobs. Many have lost their businesses. Many were told they couldn't go to church, a Supreme Court decision more than once the court had to step in to prevent Gavin Newsom from shutting down
Fresh update on "church " discussed on Texas Corners Bible Church
"At times when you do that. You won't be too popular. I know this to be true. Stand for the truth of God, You don't win some popularity contest in teaching the doctrine of God and the attributes of God. We dealt with the love of God one time and everybody loved that because you were talking about the love of God. But then we came to the doctrine of the Hate of God. Because there are certain things God hates when we started teaching that Somebody became so erate that they took a Bible and threw it down on the floor and left the church. They wanted to hear the love of God. But they didn't want to know about the hate of God. Another time. Many years ago in another ministry. There was someone that said, We think we ought to go to church and learn how to invest our money. And when we told them you're coming to church to hear the word of God We're gonna take you straight through books of the Bible. That's what we're going to do for you. They became irradiate that because it wasn't popular with them because it was God's word. When you testify for the Lord. Often times it's lonely, and it certainly will be during the tribulation. Which brings us to the third observation. The.
Caller Concerned Not Enough Pastors Are Standing up for Freedom
"Uh, I've been fortunate to get your book. That was an early quarter and on the heels of Reading another book by Dershowitz or was rather And reading yours. I'll tell you. Here's what bothers me. I'm a senior pastor Mark had been for Almost 38 years, and as I read this stuff, and I see what's going on. I just am astounded. That there aren't more pastures. Freedom lovers, Truth lovers that are not standing up and saying, Do you guys not see what's happening here? I don't know whether to be angry to cry, to be honest with you. It's very disturbing. I'm not sure that we've got to grab our pitchforks. And then that's not what I'm saying at all. I'm just saying, we're the voices who predominately, haven't looked at to proclaim the truth. Why are they not proclaiming the truth? And I'm not expecting to have the answer, But I'm just saying it's very disturbing to me. But can I say one thing, Pastor? I've been wondering this myself. Why isn't this embraced by more and more pastors and more and more churches? Explaining what's going on in this country. This is a war and family a war on faith. This is Incredibly pernicious. We need as many people as we can. The pushback, particularly our churches and other people of faith. And maybe that's happening here and there, But I'm not getting a sense yet. I'm getting a sense that the movement is building. I know this is a matter of fact. But I'm not getting a sense that the pastors have actually jumped in on this yet. Maybe I'm totally wrong.

"As you'll see in our doctrine class when we go through biblical prophecy when we study, mid trip and post tribulation rapture of one of the arguments they uses If you're a Christian, and you go into the tribulation, you're going to be protected through the tribulation. Well, how do you explain this? Who are these people who are killed here? These are those who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, and they're dying in the tribulation period. Obviously, the church isn't here. The church has been wrapped. It's interesting that as the seal is broken, there are already those underneath the older who have been executed or slain. The fact that they are viewed as underneath the older is a great old Testament imagery. And the Old Testament picture is that of blood that's been offered in an altered to God. I'm not sure exactly what older that was because the text does not say, but the point is their execution. When they were being killed here on Earth was very.

Why God Wants Us to Be United in Christ
"Judges chapter twelve verse. Four then jeb. The gathered all the men of gilead and fought with f frame and the men of gilead struck f frame because they said you are fugitives of f. Renew gilead i'ts in the midst of ephraim and manasseh. Read this verse. Because it's a concise summary of civil war. Among god's people in this point in the book of judges god's people are turning against each other and are fighting against each other in ways that are obviously destructive for them and ultimately dishonoring displeasing to god. And we see this picture and judges and then we read the rest of the bible and we see this tendency over and over and over again. And it's all over the new testament church even as i've been preaching through. First corinthians of spin reminded of divisions among god's people and tendencies among god's people to turn against one another i think about jesus prayer for us is god's people before he went to the cross like this is the one thing. He was praying for us as he transitions in john. Seventeen to praying for those. Who would believe in him through the witness of his original disciples and he praised that we be one just as he and the father are one. And so it's it's pretty clear what god desires for us as his people
Why Is Larry Elder Running for Governor of California?
"Larry elder. Jd why are you doing this. Well it was a combination. I would say twenty percents a woman. You probably don't know name. Jimmy san who came out of nowhere. She's a political activist. Here in california had all sorts of papers documents. Researches kept me contacting me ignoring her she said just have just have dinner with me so i did and she laid out the formula for why she thought i could win a statewide election. If i at this recall election. I thought she was nuts. Then dennis prager came to me. Too twenty percent dennis prager. He asked me to run. And i said hell no twenty percent. A guy named pastor jackets who has the calvary church. In costa mesa. In orange county i twenty percent a man named lionel. Chet wins a longtime filmmaker and friend of mine and they were at eighty percent now and then the rest were barbers laundry. People of the guy that drives me every now and then the one that i just make up for me. I just ask them. You think run people are asking me to do. And i kept waiting waiting for somebody to say. Are you insane. You have a great life. You're making some decent money. Why do you want to subject yourself to this. Want to put your personal life to exposure. Why do you want people to twister by all around and treat you like everything. But a child of god and finally. I got to the point where i said to myself if not you who if not. Now when i'm a native californian i've been talking about these issues about crime about homelessness about the outrageous cost of living about the fact that for the first time in our state's history. Young people are leaving the state places by tennessee and florida and texas. The primary reason is cannot buy a house and then you add to that the arrogant way. This man shut down this date in the most way than any of the other fifty governors or having his own kids enjoying a in school private education while exempting himself from his own distance from the mandate and this famous french restaurant is become a metaphor four-fifths arrogance because naturally was he violating the mass mandates and the social distancing mandates there. He was with the mary professionals. Who drafted up and so people which just live it. That's why two point two californians signed petitions to have this man recalled about a quarter of those who signed the petition are democrats and independents. Who just two years earlier voted for him.
A Conversation With Former Pastor Keith Giles on His Book, Jesus Unforsaken
"Your book even though it's about atonement which people might think oth- theory of atonement book. Maybe that's not for me. But i appreciate that you write this in an extremely accessible way. You actually cover seven different kinds of atonement theories and i think many people will be surprised to realize that there's that many they may have heard of one possibly influencing their life or possibly two or three. But what's really interesting. Is how each theory of atonement has a kind of origin story. A kind of cultural place and time in history that it came from. And you talk about on page twenty seven the gospel that jesus preached is not about getting us into heaven after we die. It's about getting heaven into us before we die before i jump in really into deeper things. I just wanted to ask you as part of this unserious. Did you feel that. Atonement was one of the top things that people misunderstand to me a little bit about how the book came together. The jesus on series is really all about as people could probably tell hearing the titles. Were reading off really is about sort of tackling. But i kind of see as pillars in evangelical christian. Faith the allergy that. I think that's largely misunderstood. A lot of it has more on tradition than what the scriptures actually teach. When you get down to it. I think a lot of it's about fear of manipulation things like that so i wanted to kind of expose that china light on and hopefully give people better theology and better ways of thinking about these things and and by the way things that are based on scripture that are based on church history.
Eric Metaxas' Book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer Is a Warning for Modern American Christians
"No matter where i go. People wanna talk to me about the bond hoffer book because they keep saying. This is what is happening today. This book is creepy to read. Because it's happening today. And i thought at some point i should mention that on this program because when i was writing the book i was writing in two thousand and eight. No kidding i thought they're curious things about what happened in germany in the twenties and then ultimately in the thirties that they struck me as oddly familiar. But i thought we're not there yet but sure enough as the decade has passed many things that you see happening in the story of bonn hoffer obviously just history just my book version of what happened back. Then but what i what i say and this is kind of my point is that i believe god called me to write that book to tell that story for us today in other words at the time. I didn't realize this. I was just writing a book to show. This was a heroic christian living in a time when it became increasingly difficult to speak freely increasingly difficult to be any kind of a christian To speak the truth. And i know that the people back then did not listen to the warnings of bonn hoffer. So he's like an old testament prophet and people. They weren't ready for it. They kept saying nine out of your too much of a hothead. Now we can. We need to listen to the government. We need to trust the government and the liberals and the conservatives. Both did the same thing. They did it for different reasons but they refused church. I'm talking about refused to stand up to the government. They had different reasons why some people said oh. We wanna preach the gospel. We don't wanna get political. Well you know what when people are going to their deaths in boxcars. It might be time to speak out against that now. That's seems political. who cares. you're speaking up for what is right. So the parallels that i see today we're not there yet but i honestly believe that if we don't heed the warning of what happened in bonn hoffer time so if you have a copy of the book now might be a good time to reread it. If you don't understand that what happened then is happening now and it will go in the same direction. Every won't be the same thing we might not have you know death camps but the point is who cares how it goes. We just know that when freedom gets canceled. It's only because people who have freedom didn't fight while they had the
California Governor Candidate John Cox Believes in Faith and Free Will
"Folks. I'm talking to john cox. The man that i hope will be the next governor of the state of california. Wouldn't that be amazing john You said my faith. I assume you're a christian. And when did that become important in your life. Well i actually adopted my faith as an adult. I didn't have a religion growing growing up. My mom was not religious. One iota and i always questioned where i was from and where i was going. Frankly and so I met my first wife who happen to be catholic and i adopted the catholic religion. I did it without telling her and sought instruction and and was baptized. When i was nineteen years old and now i've been electorate. My church for twenty years taught sunday school. I was don't brag. How did jimmy carter. Okay all right. That's nothing you wanna brag about. Nombre again i just. I'm just head my background. Is i got involved very much church and i felt it was very very important. I believe in my faith. And god's plan for us. I believe in god's love was shown through giving us all free will and freedom and free will is god's gift to us and it's it's in the constitution as the first freedom the the first amendment to the bill of rights is freedom of religion and that's because people came to this country seeking religious liberty and god gave us those that free will because he wanted us to love him. Because of our own choice. I want my children to love me for their own choice not to be forced but see communism. Socialism and big government doesn't want that they want to force you to do things and i think the essence of god's love is free will and that personifies itself in freedom and frankly the us is the greatest country in the history of the world because we celebrate freedom and because we have that firmly a solidified in in the bill of
The Founding and Crimes of The Children Of Thunder Cult
"On memorial day. Nineteen ninety nine. The helzer brothers attended a murder mystery. Dinner held at their local mormon temple that evening reportedly dressed in all black and thus stood out from the rest of suburban attendees. Most of whom were start shirts and press chino's. It was at that event that justin met don goodman a single mother mother in her mid twenties. Who had recently moved into town and was working a grocery store desperate to find a direction in her life. She decided to join the mormon church although she was said to be an outcast. Much like the helzer brothers will. Don began dating just shortly after the murder mystery dinner. She was reportedly fascinated by his cares. Medical brother taylor managed to convince her to join a self awareness. Seminar which consisted of spending a few days inside a windowless room while a facilitator aggressively badgered them to confront their inner demons which sounds like most university classes. I attended so not that crazy but no absolutely ridiculous After completing two of the seminars three levels don began receiving spiritual guidance from taylor. He had become completely unhinged by this point telling her that sometime in january two thousand it was his destiny to take over the mormon church by all means necessary. He also began calling himself. Don and his brother the children of thunder claiming that it was their mission to create a state of peace and joy for everyone.
Conservatives Need to Draw the Line to Curtail Ubiquitous Porn
"And i i really believe that the porn example is a pretty good. I think there's broad agreement here that we need to curtail. The spread of ubiquitous hot high-speed pornography in our culture. There were two laws passed for this in the nineteen ninety s with a republican house and a democrat senate democrat president the communications decency act which we actually argue a lot about now because of its section to thirty provision for big tech and the child online protection act. The cd was gutted by the supreme court and the copa. The child online protection act was held up in the courts as well but there was overwhelming support for this. I talked to a lot of young conservatives. As do you young conservatives in particular really want to curtail this stuff. And i i think. Beginning with obscenity as a way to kind of sh- finally have some limits. Some standards here is a great way to begin. There's no first amendment protection for it. And it's a recognition that liberty requires the suppression of of certain appetites and liberal education requires the cultivation of certain virtues and a conservative society needs prudence. We need to be able to say yeah. Words means something we can kind of know things in and we can kind of guide how we're going to govern ourselves and we really can't tell the difference between drag wing story our in church on sunday or a porn star and political speech than we can't tell the difference between between anything and we can't govern ourselves but just fascinated that really sharp people whether david french ben dominic That they would fall for this. I mean it seems to be kind of pure libertarianism. that in in seconds falls apart. I mean we just said it right. You know if you wanna bring. Let's bring in the racist. We wanted to be a big ten. I don't have to agree with them. But bring them in. No listen speaking of buckley when he founded national review in the fifties He specifically said that we're not going to let the john birch irs in. He understood that there are. We wanted to be as big a tent as can be but we have to draw the line. If pita can't do that everything falls
David French Praised Drag Queen Story Hours as ‘Blessing of Liberty.’ Is It?
"Knowles. We were just talking. Michael about the issue of david. French talked about Drag queen story our any sort of couched it in the idea that this is part of liberty or or something and Revisit that how is he mistaken. So i i want to be as charitable as i as i can to david's view because i think a lot of people share that view and it's that if we tell perverts that they can't twerk for toddlers in schools or at the public library well then turn around and tell us that we can't go to church on saturday that makes no sense and everybody knows that makes no sense. And you've only you've got to be a reader of national review or some kind of intellectual to even entertain this preposterous notion in my mind because everybody else. That's silly but go ahead. Yeah under so. I think intuitively. We all know that these things are in no way comparable but i think it has become a part of the conservative sensibility over the last fifteen or twenty years to get rid of all standards entirely and embrace a sort of radical autonomy and embrace liberty as licentious. And so you get very confused about these
Moving With the Absence of Judgment
"Giving talks over zoom. I had my first in person speaking engagement at a local unity church although it was over stimulating for me to be in a room filled with so many people in live music after such a long stretch of peaceful solitude. I somehow managed to maintain composure. And keep my cool. Transitioning back into social events is going to be a gradual exercise for me. I had one event this month. There are two next month and then half a dozen that involves some travel the month after that while some people have anxiety about businesses opening up again distance travel restrictions being lifted and facemasks no longer being a requirement in some areas. There are also many people who are excited to get back out there to socialize and mingle let's be gentle and understanding with one another check with someone if they are open to hugging before assuming that they are and honor. Everyone's comfort level prior to my talk on sunday. The minister said our life. Experience is directly affected by our mythology. This got me thinking about what a difference perspective can make when it comes to our ability to love everyone on the one hand a friend recently told me he believes in our human nature to judge others and that my entire premise of non judgment is therefore idealistic and unrealistic. Wife fight nature. Is my friends. Go to reasoning for humans being so selfish on the other hand. The dalai lama says that love is the absence of judgement. So what's in question is no longer whether or not we can love freely. It is suddenly a discussion about us. Judging compulsively it doesn't matter if loving or judging is in our inherent nature because we aren't concrete and nothing is permanent only fixed above all else it's ultimately in our nature to evolve like all beings so we are not limited restricted or confined by our past. We are shaped but what we decide to do. In the
The Left Has Fixated on Evangelism at the Expense of Truth
"Church pastors or whoever out there over focused on evangelism. Now it's bad to under focus on evangelism but if you act as though getting people saved is the only thing we're here on earth to do in idiot. You're not reading the scripture. The fact of the matter is that if you over focus on evangelism what happens is you make people think i cannot say anything ever unless it might help lead somebody to faith and if i say anything controversial or that they might disagree with. That's bad for the witness. And i was hamstrung in that position for years myself. I got to be careful. I don't wanna be political because it's all about you know getting them save getting them saving. Say well at the end of the day you have to trust truth and you have to trust that. If i speak the truth. I am speaking god and i think we all have to understand. We've all seen idiots. Who drive people away from jesus and i'm looking at you jet grim so as my love language. Now he knows. I love him more than any of you. But we haven't you. We've all seen that and so the left and the culture lifts this up as a boogeyman that or you don't wanna be that guy who's driving people away as the religious fanatic right. Well now we have the opposite thing. The guy who so nice who. He's afraid to talk about truth.
A Heartbreaking Novel About Mothers, Daughters and Secrets
"Elizabeth egan joins us now to talk about her latest. Pick for group taxed. Hey liz hi pam i thanks for having me. What's the book. The book is called. I couldn't love you more. And it's by esther freud. This is her ninth novel. And it's a book about three generations of women kind of circulating between ireland and england and the first one is a woman named ika. We get to know her in the nineteen thirties than her daughter. Roseline in the nineteen fifties and then a woman who we find out. And i'm not giving anything away that you won't learn fairly early in the book is kate who and we meet her in. Nineteen ninety-one and roseline is the linchpin of the whole story. She becomes pregnant in her early twenties and winds up in a home in ireland outside of cork a mother and baby home. Run by nuns. Who force her to give up her daughter kate for adoption and so the book is the story of these three women. And how e phi is continuing to look for roseline who disappears and kate is looking for roseline. She's looking for birth mother. And it's this incredibly powerful story about mothers and daughters and also an interesting and really heartbreaking. Look at what was happening in ireland at the time that really went on for about one hundred years where the catholic church ran the. They were like prisons for women who were in trouble in some in some way and they forced women to change their names and to give up their babies. And it's an incredibly heartbreaking walk at that legacy of secrecy.

The banner was stolen from the Asbury United Methodist Church, one of the oldest black churches in the area. On top of the destruction of property charge. He also pleaded guilty to attempting to possess a high capacity gun magazine which is illegal in the city. Alright, let's stop. He burned a black lives matter. Flag, Mr Producer. Have you ever heard of anybody being charged with burning a flag? Private property or no private property. Did we see entire blocks burned during the riots of this past summer?

"Night was game. five More shots and now gone And my brother is a minnesota twins fan and he started trash talking me one and they're playing the yankees and they got swept so i enjoyed. I enjoyed that conversation with him. That sounds good. Yeah so tell me about cross church. I know that you planted the church. How long have you guys been going on How did you plant. did you go on your own. You use something like are just kind of give us the story of the church absolutely. We planted about six years ago as a new startup. church thing not really campus or a satellite but we we got training through the arc. We love the are. Some of my closest friends are passers and whatnot. and We are associated with arc But didn't receive any of the funds there definitely had their relationship there and great training and and We're just having a lot of fun A lot of fun just love and our community in north georgia and and trying to make a little bit more crowded. Did you start in a building. You start in a school. How what was the process like. Yeah absolutely so boy. When we started out we we looked at. I don't know took us about eight months to secure our location which that was a beast We ended up starting in a school. Was there for about four years Set up tear down the only. We couldn't leave anything so the only thing that was there that we didn't have to set up was chairs because those were bolted to the ground So as a performing arts theater kind of thing and and it was a lot of work. We couldn't store anything on site. Everything had the drawn in by trailer every single week. It is pretty exhausting. And so and we had to set up day saturday and sunday because they wouldn't let us into the main room until sunday morning but they would let us into the kids rooms on saturday so it it was We were portable. And i didn't know that when. I when god asked me to start church was actually starting to moving company. That's kind of what it felt like. Yeah a how many months or years were you doing that. Saturday sunday thing. Yeah four years four years and man. I'll tell you what the saints of the church where the people that set up and tore down and they're pretty awesome. We'll just go. What's what's your building like. Now i mean i know you have your own facility. How are you at. I mean do you own it or you still some portable the a one campus to campus. What's the story so we're a one campus church and we're having a lot of fun five and half years in kind of a thing and we own our building we the day we started five and a half years ago we started. Put money aside for us to be able to step in and make a purchase just believing that as we worked on small margins that god would be able to help us take that next step and When a building basically came open the first building that ever came open for us. We've been searching from day one and it took about four plus years for us to find a place when we did we announced to our church That we were As the first time we ever talked to the church about it we announced that we were in contrast purchase building that we had a large down payment for the building. And here's the giving plan for us to be able to finalise the building and so it was a pretty exciting day because no one even knew what we're doing till we just did it and People really got behind it and So were we've already got most of our building paid off the grace. God tell you when you guys decided to start the church you went with cross church and it's but it's not like cross jesus church it's like an it's like cross roads almost like what's the what's the branding about. Yeah so what we like to say is the cross of christ helps you the cross from your pain to your purpose. You know you see right behind me. Fine life it's this idea. That's our brain behind this. You kind of see our logo and stuff. And that's the idea of you. Know kind of like the israelites. going from You know egypt into the tom. Aslan that the cross helps you to cross into new life helps you find life through christ relationship with christ and relationship with others and that's really our purpose is to help you find life. And so that whole branding thing is you see the flag as well too. It's like we're taking new ground because whenever you take a new ground where you do plant a flag and so it's this idea of kin tuning to move towards what god has for you. Who was your first higher. Yeah great question. I hire was actually a husband and a wife combo so i'm going to cheat a little bit He ran the worship and still does and she ran our youth and children's ministry and still does their phenomenon and we we basically stipend them at the very beginning. And i won't tell you how much we skype in them. Because it was very embarrassing but they were very gracious and there's some of the best people that we have in our church house. Gene wilder their rockstars. From the moment. If you're comfortable with this question from the moment you planted the church until now what do you think if you could pinpoint one is one of the biggest mistakes you've made so far as a pastor made a lot of them which one you know. I'll i think one mistake that i did early on was put too much pressure on myself to build the fantasy church and what i mean by that is i think when whenever we started church or planet which many of us may be no one else. Maybe it's just me but we say that we're not looking to be the next steven fertig or insert your name and Hill song or whatever your big name churches we say no. I'm just following god. I'm just obeying god breaking or something in the back of us back of our mind. That says you why to be cool. If and i think we we wanna plant a fantasy church. Instead of what goddess obediently asked us to so filling go after a and and so i think put a little bit too much pressure on myself to try to be the next whatever. I didn't mimic them. I like them. I was my unique self and what god had called me to be. But that internal pressure to perform. Let's be honest of the large start up churches and god bless you if you are one of them but we are not Condo one percent of the one percenters and so oftentimes. We get very enamored by the very fast growing startup. church plants. Now so awesome. If you are come-ons comes in my church. And tell me everything. I need to change. That's cool no. I probably wouldn't listen half of them because every one of us have a unique. Dna that god has called us to be. But i guess what i'm trying to say is understand that we all organically grow at different places spaces levels and you've got to figure out what god's called you to be and don't worry about building your fantasy church but rather bill church god has called you uniquely to plant and build in the community. He's called you to that. Sounds beautiful. But i yeah i was talking. I was talking with my a buddy of mine. Who was six months. Maybe five months out from launch sunday and they were doing arc thing too and we were helping them with some mailers and some facebook ads. And i remember i was golfing with my buddy and we were talking about the church and i asked him. I said if at the peak this church has a hundred people forever..

"Are y'all ready for this? Everybody saying I ever going back to church because they're all the same. Like somebody has a bad marriage and that woman thinks all men are scum. All minis come scum. I. I don't believe in microwave and I believe in marinating. I've been married a long time. I know scum folks. Somebody had a bad marriage and they just white somebody off or people have a bad church experience of what you know what they did. They write them all, but it's interesting you go to the doctor and the doctor can give you wrong dot Noces. You get mad and I can't believe they're all after money. Jacked up insurance. What you do. Go find another doctor. I don't know why you do people just leave the church and shut the church out 'cause it's immaturity is what it is. Hold on. Non disciples. Three where. Who disappointed the man the father, the what non disciples. So that tells me not all church folk are alike. Did you hear me this still three charge people in the mountain. About the preach, they're still church. People who not Jesus. They're still three. This church people who sing still church. People who live right bodies the same, not everybody is going to treat sue the same way. Then they may be non disciples that disappoint you, but there's going to be at least three disciples us live and right this walk in and holiness that love God, that's faithful that will give every search person is alike. So instead of count the church out. You got to remind yourself. There's always a Peter, James, and John. Pastor is anybody living right by love. Jesus seems like nobody loves Jesus anymore. Nobody's you real discourage. Jesus said, we tears grow together. Jesus don't don't don't mess with it, let it all grow together because in the end he'll separate at all this and I'm not gonna walk through the island say you're living right? And you're living right? And you're not living, right? You can't do that. We in tares jog on grow together because in the end at the resurrection, the master will go through the field and he will separate the wheat and the tares. So therefore we're letting it grow together. But I'm, we'll let you tell anytime there's tears. There's going to be hurt feelings. Anytime there's tears grown with the wheat. There's going to be disappointment, but you've got to focus on the non people that disappointed you. You've got to understand that there is a Peter, James and John. That's not going to disappoint you. That will stain with you that we'll three with you will walk with you. If you don't like Matthew, go find Peter. If you don't want, Judas go on John, there's Peter, James, and John and prophesy in this church that Peter James Johns in this building. I said, this Peter, James, in this building at the foot of the mountain dew bit at the top of the mountain in with the Lord. Promise you, if Peter James and John was at the foot of the mountain, they coulda cast the demon out because they were all in the mountain. Pray with the master. Law believe. Hope and belief. Why do you have unbeliev sir? Thought the disciples could do. Jesus can do this appointed. Why are you hurt? Because I thought Christians should act like. I should be able to come the church and feel loved in accepted autumn, not come the church where people fold their arms and Akmad and upset. That's what the world does. The has the attitude.

"Okay. Put it up there. Let me let me show you principle here x fifteen twenty eight and look at this. This is the early church. They came together and they started praying. Okay. And this was their conclusion when they were laying hands on some of the missionaries that we're going to go out verse twenty eight fifteen twenty. So it wasn't chapter fifteen right? For it seemed good Holy Spirit and to us to lay our hands to lay up on, you know, greater burden than these necessary things. They'll stop here, isn't it? Ironic, look at the scripture? It did not say it seemed good to the Holy Spirit in me. It seemed good to the Holy Spirit in me, and that's where we mess up in wisdom. Because wisdom is found in a multitude accountable. It seemed good to the Holy Spirit us. Wisdom is found in a multitude of council and where we come together as a group, not everybody's gonna, miss the Holy Spirit. You're going to have a few people in the group is carnal, but that doesn't mean if you have elders or leaders in the church coming together to make decision. If you have a group of people come together that love God and wanna hear God's voice. You might have a couple of people that's not hearing God's voice, that the majority will hear God's voice. God speaks through a community. Now, let me give you a principal. God does speak to individuals, but whatever he speaks to the individual is confirmed by the community. That is why when somebody feels called into the ministry, the scripture says it is the elder ship that confirms you are called. In other words, the church, the community confirms to the individual that you are called. So you can't just call yourself. People get up, say, I'm called the preach. Did the church conferment did a group of people in your life confirmed. That you were called. 'cause if you read scripture now I don't care your philosophy. 'cause people say, you know, I'm anointed and I can do whatever I wanna do. That's not what the bible teaches this. Absolutely not what the bible teaches. There's a lot of people who are called and picked up their bible win, and nobody is endorsing them. Can I hear name in and how many would raise your hand and say, you probably wouldn't endorse them either come on. I mean, we got to be careful. That's why when somebody is ordained into the ministry, there is a group of people elder ship that has confirmed you're calling. Now, is there some exceptions in church history that the ownership has been wrong? Yes, that is the exceptions. Nothing norm- normally a group of people who have a heart to hear God. We'll hear the voice of God, not everybody's going to be off in the group. It seems good to us and the Holy Spirit. That is why when we moved in this building, when we moved here, it was a six to eight month process because I understood that wisdom. Has found in the mocks do the council and we, we win over here. We looked at the building. We prayed over. I fasted and prayed that with the financial team, we brought people in from the outside to look at it, brought people into looking at our finances, not only the financial team. The elders looked at it. The elders voted had the elders voted. Yes and no, I wouldn't have done if they didn't do they voted, yes or no. After they voted the financial team voted, yes or no after they voted, yes or no. I did a vision night in the church vote, yes or no. There was a process because it seems good to us and the holy goat. It wasn't pastor, Josh. It had to be an s. thing. So how do I know that we're in the will of God because the scripture says is seemed good to us and the Holy Ghost. It wasn't come on somebody here. Amen. This this was a corporate thing. It wasn't coaxed or manipulated because I even got up and said, listen, if you don't wanna go. That's perfectly fine. I'm not going nowhere. I'm gonna be your pastor. We'll pass the church anyway. Doesn't matter what is the Holy Spirit saying? Marriages would have been saved. If people would have just listened to Woz council, somebody better helped me preach up here..

"And everybody is not going to praise you for what you have done every body might even think it a senseless act your too radical why are you doing it that way but ladies and gentlemen the reason that she came in offered a sacrifice is because she understood what it meant to have a generous grateful heart how can we said in a church sunday after sunday and we not give and we not honor god with our life an honor guard with our finances and honor guard with our relationships how can we set so pious with our arms folded as if we dared not give god what we can give him let's not have the victim mentality church in think that you're doing so much for jesus that it's so hard for us to attend church a couple of times a week let's not play that game let's not play the game that were sacrificing so much that it's a burden to come a couple of times a week to church and it's a burden to give in it's a it's a burden to do this let's let's not play that his you and i know that more christians were killed last year than in recent history remember reading the story about how isis ran into way orthodox church on palm sunday last year there's a couple of hundred worshippers waving palm branches isis came in in the middle of the liturgy and slaughtered all three hundred of those worshippers almost all of them and took the pastor by the hand and took a rope and raptis arms around the rope and drug came through the city let's not act like that what we are doing for jesus is all we can do.

"I'm a student of the word and i love the scriptures you know there's other books written besides the scriptures that never was accepted into the canon of scripture three twelve saint after the nation was the first saint of the church who wrote a letter to the church and included all the books of the bible the church was read in the books but it was not in one book you had matthew here mark here luke here they were dispersed throughout the entire region the providence that great saint at the nations three twelve christianity became official religion of roman and three 75 saint at the nation's wrote this letter and said he felt that these were the books since they were already being read by the church and the church was already believe in them there was no reason to vote on them they were already accepted as the word of god so through that process the scriptures were accepted by the church what's interesting to me isn't some books never made it into the cannon and there is a book out there that we never accepted as scripture you read it in its enjoyable to read but you know we never accepted it because it never lined up with what's there but there's a book about his birth and they have some folks stories and their about jesus be in two years old and and pull doing magic with the water onestorey states that jesus found a dead bird any laid hands on the dead bird and the bird came alive again you know those stories are spectacular and they never got accepted in the bible and there's no reason to accept them but as a as a as i am aware of those stories it reminds me that it's possible that somebody was trying to exalt jesus is deity they was trying to exalt jesus is god man who what we failed to realize is that if you exalt him as god you've got to acknowledge that he was a baby as well you've got to acknowledge that jesus had a diaper all you've got to acknowledge that jesus was a helpless little baby who fed at the breast of his mother.
