"Next few weeks. So those are the type of schools that are looking at these kids that we get to see. You could tell this who's wearing what. Absolutely. Why is this guy head to toe? Head to toe. This guy's head to toe in Jackson's state here. That's interesting. Is he doing here? Head to taking pictures. And listen, at the pregame, if you walk the field, they're taking pictures with players, they're taking pictures with the coaches, the assistant coaches, it is a partner that was at the rose bowl. So they're playing a high school championship at the rose bowl in front of 16,000 people showed up there last night, just phenomenal. But another player too, Elijah Brown. If you don't know the name, he's the quarterback from modern day. That was his first high school laws. He's been there starting quarterback since he was just a sophomore. He comes back as a senior next year. Everybody in their mom in a pot of grits want him to. Yeah, I mean, he's a good player. I like the way he's bigger. He's bigger than he's bigger than BY.

"All gigantic, which is super great, but here in Nebraska, this was kind of our first real big big box. And the interesting thing is, especially if you think about the Black Friday conversation, I actually enjoy going to wall to wall more. It's the one store left. I want to go to in person for some reason. That I don't want to do online. It doesn't seem like the online alcohol sales have is a great experience, right? I mean, it's just not as good. What is it about going into the store? Do you think? Well, sometimes you develop relationships with some of the people that work there. And then they can help you fix stuff or maybe clue you into some trends in the market that you're not aware of and stuff like that. If you're that interested, which that's kind of the level that at least I'm at where I kind of pay attention to that stuff and I'm one that I have a hard time narrowing it down to like three to 5. You know, I have I think I have like 40 bottles and within like my cabinet and I keep my scotches down here next to my desk for some reason, but yeah, I like seeing all the options and you'll go in there and certain things are marked down one day, a $50 bottle all of a sudden is 20 and you're like, oh hopping on that and so and you get to see stuff come and go. They do like what's becoming super popular is the barrel picks. And so these companies or the store have representatives that will go to the distillery and they will pick out a barrel an entire barrel and then they bottle all of it and then they have it there at the store. So like somebody picked that out, obviously with a specific palette, but they are also thinking about the consumer when they're doing that. And you get different flavor profiles from that. A lot of times they're a little bit higher in the alcohol percentage. And so it feels a little more personal and a little more special. And that's one of the fun parts too, because every couple of months you go in there and they have a different set of picks and they'll usually have like 7 or 8 of them available in the cycle through those and the regular stock will cycle. You'll see stuff one week that you didn't see the last. They have their case that's locked up where you'll see your more special stuff pop up in there. That goes really fast. Stuff like you're playing and a lot of that buffalo tree stuff or like the Elijah Craig barrel proofs are they release those three times a year and there's. You know, those are cool because somehow I keep finding them, but I've seen one bottle of wine, like all year. And I would rather drink this any day of the week. But anyways. We have one in our House. You can just always come over here. And that's part of it too. I always know I have if I want to compare it. That's honestly that's the only reason. That it's great to have around to comparing it, but anyways. I've actually spent some time thinking through, you know, I went through a phase where I was buying a bunch, and then I said, okay, I can't drink these. As fast as I was buying them. And then I said, okay, I'm going to set a $20 limit on a bottle. And I thought that'll slow me down. Not a chance. At a wall to wall, they're always running something pretty good for 20 bucks. And then I was like, okay, I just need to stop going to the store. I get there. And I'm like, well, I can't, I can't miss out on this. Fill in the blank on whatever it is. Yeah, it's just one of those things I've really enjoyed going. Just enjoy going to the store more than I, to me, the online shopping experience for bourbons, whiskys, whatever. Just isn't, I just don't like it. I don't know why. I just, I prefer to go in person. As we think about the holidays, let's think about maybe three to 5 recommendations as we're thinking about bourbons to try or bourbons to for gifts, what do you think? What are some good ones that you'd kind of go with? Let's just say under 50 bucks. Yeah. So I'm going to give a disclaimer where one of the reasons I have a hard time with this is because I understand everybody's palette is going to be different. Everybody has different responses to how high of the alcohol percentage is. And then just taste in general, so subjective. So I would say based on my experience with other people, what people say online, my own experiences with these things too. It's still a ton of options that, depending on what you got going on, what kind of money you want to spend, also if you know that person is a whisky enthusiast or like enjoys bourbon. Then I think any one of these 5 would probably be like they would be like, they would get brownie points or respect points or whatever for grabbing these. Having not known much about whisky. But then to the average drinker, they actually might come across pretty well. So one of my go tos, especially for comparisons and just baseline stuff is makers Mark cask strength. You could even add in just a basic maker's Mark two. Like if you know you've got like a beginner beginner, but if you've got people that are like regularly drinking whisky or like a more regularly than the makers cast strength is kind of hard to beat on a lot of levels because around here it's 35 bucks. And it's spanking the pants off of a lot of $60 whisky's easy. 1792. Hold on, before you go. Good presentation. It's dipped dipped in red wax. Lots of people know makers like that's a good that's a pretty good. And that's a line. They've got 5 or 6 different. You have to go in there and kind of look through, you know, don't always just go by price. But a very nice presentation and most I shouldn't say this most. A lot of bars if you go and get an old fashioned makers is what they'll is what they use. Just ask them, what's your house, what's your house bourbon? And they'll kind of let you know, but makers gets used, I think, they're just regular version gets used a lot for that. So it makes a good makers makes a good gift. And yes, they do individually. They have people who dip those. And individually dip them. I was watching a YouTube video talking about dipping techniques for the twist. There's a little twist in there. It's kind of like when you're pouring too to keep it from dripping off the side, like there's that whole. Yeah, that's one of those satisfying videos to watch. Watching those guys on the line just dip in those things and like every two seconds they're dipping a new bottle. And that's one of those two. I actually had a.

'The Wildman Devotional' With Doug Giles

"Restore the idea of wildness to manhood to Christian faith. By the way, folks, when we say restore, it is a biblical idea. These ideas have been really destroyed over time and especially the wool culture today has really just. Heresy has come into the church big time, of course, but you're really dug in many of your books in what you say. You're hoping restore the idea of wildness because, you know, the idea that you have a line behind you Aslan in the chronicles of Narnia. He is not tame. He is wild, but good. That concept is antithetical to our, you know, let's say feminized ideas are domesticated ideas of goodness. And when you say wild man, you mean that in the very best sense. Yeah, I mean, you look at guys like Elijah John the Baptist, Abraham Moses. Again, like, you know, we've talked about before. They've been emasculated. They've been feminized out the wazoo. They're not these, you know, just rough burly type characters anymore. They've got porcelain skin and they prance around and walk through daisies. I think in some of the newer Bible translations, some of these men lactate. I believe that that's, I believe that's in some of the new translations.

Learning The Voice Of The Lord - burst 1

"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. Hello, everyone. I'm Ron, your host, and on this podcast will be focusing on learning the voice of the lord. We must wait before him and have our spiritual ears train to hear that still small voice. There's this thing called head knowledge. Where you can have a head knowledge of the scriptures and you can acknowledge in your mind and believe in your mind but have no experience. Yeah. Exactly. With the word at all, and it's crucial to have experiential knowledge with his word because that's what works at in your heart and in your spirit. Otherwise, you know, it's not real. It's not a lie. And so, you know, you ask the question, how are we able to hear the voice of the lord? The ear that hears is the ear of the servant. The love slave. The man who humbles himself before the lord. Those are the folks that actually hear what God has to say. And he says my sheep know my voice. You can tell it so obvious when somebody's speaking is that the lord speaking or is it just somebody talking? It's probably one of the hardest things to teach because it's an individual experience. You know, honestly, you get somebody that praise for you to have ears to hear. That really is where it comes from because none of us are here except that somebody prayed for us. Right. Jesus said that my sheep hear my voice and they follow me, a stranger they will not follow and is that there's something innate when you open up your heart and accept the lord. Yeah, that's an important key what you're saying Laurie because hearing the voice of the lord is based upon a relationship. Right. And you were talking earlier about head knowledge. Yeah, you can know that Bible from one end to the other. The whole bit, but unless you have a relationship with the scriptures, it's never going to mean anything to you. Right. I think one of the things that kicks off a true relationship is Salvation. Because he can yell at you all day long, but when you turn around and you say, I open my heart to your lord, that's the beginning of a relationship. And I think that's where the voice of the lord, as we learn it over our growing in that, that it starts with you speaking back because he's been speaking for a long time. You just weren't listening. Right. When you answer, here I am, lord. What Samuel say? Would Eli teach Samuel to do? Here am I. Here am I. That to me is a place of beginning. What I love is that the actually the voice of the lord can come and appear in many forms and in many applications. You know, I mean, the worst case you have is balaam, right? The donkey. We'll say the donkey talk with him. That was the voice of the lord. But your circumstances can talk to you as we are talking, you know, and the lord speaks through a vessel that's like, I know that voice. I don't care who's talking. I know that's the lord coming through. Here's the question, what are some safeguards? We are believing that like Jesus, we actually must hear from God. Right. There is a natural response of skepticism when someone says God spoke to me. Yeah. I love it. Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. And that's first John or one. And some of the safeguards here are humility, authority, submission, witness, confirmation and covering. Regardless of how much God reveals to you, even if you could write a whole new Bible, you still must submit it to those who are over you in the lord. There has to be confirmation. Right. Right. And we're learning that we have confirmation with each other. That we can trust in each other if they're looking for it. Because some people don't don't try and look for it. They just, I just want to hear the voice of the lord. And then they run with it. They just go on from there and say, that's a voice of the lord. Without confirmation without anything. So yeah, you're right. There's a couple of other things about the voice of the lord. There is a couple of keys in the scriptures that help us fine tune our hearing God speak to us, Romans 8, verse one. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Right. If you're listening to somebody speaking, there's something just not right, and you, you feel a condemnation, that's not from the lord. The accuser of the brethren, a rat poison, 99 and 4400 percent pure, there again, you develop an ear for that. Yeah. God not going to come and accuse you of anything. He's going to come to you and he's going to say, come up higher. Yeah. He'll say, I've made a provision for you called grace. I'm going to teach you I chase in every son whom I received. And that is hugely positive. If you hear a voice telling you that a chastening is a bad thing, that's not God. Yeah. That's right. So you're saying it was a good thing because it's what God puts you through by his hand to make you a son. And God has been speaking to you. Since the dawn of your conception. All she wants to do is bring you into his family. Yeah. And listen carefully to what that voice says and Ron and I were talking about this the other day. I flat out asking misses Ron what voice is used when God speaks to you, and he says, my own, I laughed, I said, there's nothing wrong with that. God uses your voice to talk to you so you'll listen and understand. But that's true. Many times, as we are one on one with God, he's using your voice. What did Jesus do his entire ministry? He did what he saw the father do, and he spoke what he heard the father say. That is the revelation of the father. Where does the father speak? Samuel classic example, Samuel. Four times before he understood what he was supposed to do. And then you have people like Elijah, who lived in the presence of the lord, I am sure they communed quite a bit. You know if you're in his presence, at least you're listening. You may not have a lot of questions. Because in his presence, there's no nothing amiss, if you will, it's peaceful, it's really calm, it's wonderful, place to be. I recommend it. I really do. But we used to talk about practice the presence of the lord. Yes. If you hear the voice of the lord and your response, he will give you the confirmation or he will show you what he's doing. But when you hear what he's saying and you act upon it, what you're talking about earlier, Lori, it's that action upon his word that were Dale's talking about where he will talk to you again. You create that relationship, you build it up. By listening and acting upon what he speaks. Right. This is critical though, what you're saying. This waiting on God and tying it into learning his voice before you will understand on how to wait on him. I really believe that God may 1st put you through some very deep afflictions. And difficult dealings basically drives you into him. Yeah. Out of those deep dealings though, you get this motivation to seek his face and to hear what he has to say. So it's very critical, semantics work, your relationships, and having it confirmed and that's the only way to have a 100%, you know, you're on the right track with the lord. And hearing this and walking with him. One of the things that always struck me was it seemed like Christ spent a lot of time in prayer. There was a term that I've heard for a number of years now. And that's the prayer of listening. I really think that Christ spent a lot of time doing that. His prayer was a prayer of listening. I think that is, that's something that we develop in a relationship. Yes. We learned to be quiet, saddle our mind, take control of our spirit, end listen. Lord said be skill and know that I am God. Today we've heard that it is crucial that we have experiences with the lord in the scriptures and not just a bunch of head knowledge. This is the experiences with him as the word of God that opens up a deep relationship with him to truly hear his voice. The lord is speaking to each one of us, are we listening? Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life. As this time in his presence blessed you, then please subscribe to our podcast at live behind the veil dot com.

"I wanted to talk to you because you have to both produce and anchor a broadcast. And the Indiana mall hero Elijah dicken is in the news. I want to know what your network and what you did with this story because news nation now is a straight up newscast. It's just the news. And this is a big story that's not really been covered. What did you do with the Indiana mall shooting? We thought it was really an incredible story. First of all, his heroics, we've now learned, or something out of a movie, even Hollywood wouldn't script a 22 year old with his girlfriend. Neutralizing a guy with an AR in 15 seconds. Remarkable, just on its face. But more importantly, in a time when there is so much debate over active shooters. And so much debate over how to stop them undoubtedly stopping them is a good thing. So much debate over weapons in America, whether people should be able to carry them or not and where they should carry them. The fact that somebody in a constitutional carry state neutralized and active shooter is real news.

Caller: So, the Indiana Shooter Violated the Mall's Code of Conduct?

"I just want to say really quick here this kid Elijah, you know, he was obviously raised. I've raised my boys with them to take care of themselves and be responsible, but the point is, is if he is in violation of the code of context, what about the guy who had the gun who was killing people, wasn't he in violation as well? What if they have a code of conduct against killing people? Is that going to be their argument if I hope he doesn't have any charges brought against him, but if they do, the guy who came in the mall to kill people was violating the code of Congress. No question about it. You know, and Leo Terrell said last night on Fox how the reason the media and the left is reacting the way they're reacting is it does break every bit of their it breaks their narrative apart. That you should never have a gun for personal protection. You know? That's one of their narratives. You don't need a gun for personal protection. Look at the whole gun control debate we're having right now in America. The left thinks that I believe if I'm quoting them right, hunters can have guns. You don't need an AK-47 to hunt. People don't want a gun to hunt. They want a gun for personal protection.

A highlight from Ears To Hear Are Created

"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil hello, everyone. I'm Ron your host, and on this podcast, we'll be talking about hearing and speaking the word of God. Those who have a drive to bring God's kingdom to the earth. Must first have ears created in them to hear his word before they can speak a word from God. Let's listen in to the teaching of the Holy Spirit, and believed to have created within us ears to hear his word. What I understand of the early church is they did not expound scriptures, they believed and spoke by faith a word from God that changed people's hearts, framed in age, they had to listen to an apostolic word, had to listen to the prophet's speak, and then believe in the impartation of that and open their mouths and speak a word from God. Think about these people, what they were receiving had to come from a living epistle. Speaking the truth and love, that's the true thing of whether it's the word of the lord or not, is whether it's the truth, in love, and that authority of the lord coming through, and they could feel that. I'm sure they could tell the difference between somebody who was narrating just expose saying as opposed to somebody who was really sharing their heart with one another. Thing with Peter is so important because in X two he stood up with the 11, remember, and he started talking about Joel. He quoted from Joel too in the fact that he knew what the scripture said, but he also changed it slightly and kind of updated it for how it applied to their day. And that's the thing about what we call an apostolic word is it brings a live the scriptures for today. And that's what the true life is. I mean, you can read the word without the life without the truth in your heart, and it just becomes something you study. Just like any literature, but you have to have the life in your heart to get it imparted to you and to others while we're speaking about living epistles tonight, or speaking about the difference between what I would consider, I'm not putting down a scholar because there's nothing wrong with studying the word. And being a scholar of the word, but the spirit behind it without the relationship of Christ behind it without the relationship to the body of Christ and the members of the body, it's worthless. It's just a bunch of head knowledge and a pumping up of ego, like Paul, Paul is a perfect example, pharisee of the pharisees, but yet after he had his meeting with the lord. It changed his whole spirit. It changed his whole drive, his whole attitude, his heart, the relationship, that's where things are sparked. That's where things are alive. On that day of Pentecost, one word, save 3000 people. Today it takes 3000 words to save one. The word of God never grows old. Because it's always alive. Exactly, it should always be alive, no matter whose speaking it, they spoke a living word to one another. It was something that was alive. They shared an experience with Christ. Alan, were they better people than us? No, God, no. They had to be special. People because they were probably worse off than we are. They might have been more honest than the American person. Well, there's a truth right there. The point I'm making is we've been talking about the early church and then we're talking about today back and forth and we're talking about Christ. This is probably a controversial. I don't think Christ wanted to be put on a pedestal. Right. I think Christ wanted to be an example to people of how you can walk with God and how you can speak his word and have a relationship with the father to me without that, it's just religion, Christ is the first born of many brethren, and he is the example the pattern son that God sent to the earth to provide a way to be created into those people that God can use in the earth. I want to give a really good example and it's back in Ezekiel 37, but I want to emphasize verse four in chapter 37 again he said to me, prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the lord. Now, in Amos again, it talks about there is a famine for hearing the word. What did Jesus do when he was on earth? He spoke what he heard the father speaking. That's what Ezekiel did here. That's what he lied to do. That's what he likes it did. They are not special, even Elijah himself says, you know, basically I put my pants on one leg at a time just like you do. There are people just like we are. What we really should be hearing from this is that the father is looking for people to hear the words, so we speak that word, lord, loose ears to hear. Lord loose the people in America to hear the word of the lord. Loose the people in Africa, South America, the 7 continents. My God, loose the hearing of the word. Right. And loose those who have a prophetic word from God who are like Elijah, I stand in the presence of the lord, and by my word, it's not going to rain for three and a half years, right? That's what Elijah said. Alan, your speaking something, there's a key before you can speak a word from God. You have to have ears to hear a word from God. And if you think about think about it, what Christ said every time you spoke after as he would say, those who have ears to hear, yes, let them hear a word from God. There are a lot of people out there that are preaching. A lot of people out there that are quote speaking a word from God, and it's not a word from God, God has to create ears to hear. Our living word from God, every one of us sitting here didn't start out speaking the word of God. We sat under mentors and they were speaking a word from God, and it created the capacity within us to hear a word from God, exactly. Which then enabled us to begin to speak the word from God. Lord loose people to hear. Loose the hearing of your word father loose the hearing, and the understanding loose the hearts to understand what you're saying. Even the disciples, what did you say? They didn't get it either until after the day of Pentecost. Today there are so many men and women of God out there that are in churches and they're anointed men and women of God, and their speaking and anointed word. So here's two people sitting in the congregation. One person has ears, and when that word spoken, it hits them, it changes them. They walk in it. The other person, it goes right over their head. Yep. Same place, two different people. Well, on this podcast, we found out that having ears to hear God's word is crucial if we are those who are called to speak his word and bring his kingdom to this earth. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life. As this time in his presence blessed you, then please subscribe to our podcast at live behind the veil dot com.

"I just want to be the one to fund you. So I really want to be the one to open some doors for them once they're done with my stuff. And just kind of help the next generation I think there's been this whole thing since early web days and then we saw the ships the App Store and everything and all these tech companies. You need to be there's a certain progression. You need to go get your tech crunch articles and your press and get your venture capital and all this sort of stuff. And I think there's other ways to do that. I think if you're really good at shipping products and projects that connect with people, there's a different way for it. And so I just want to kind of part my wisdom on these people and I know a lot of people and look at my rejected section. I know a lot of people. So if there's a way for me to kind of open some doors and connect some dots for folks, then I think that's kind of the position I want to be in a couple of years. And not necessarily shipping a project for a brand every month, month and a half, and deal with these crazy ass hours. I'm getting old. And you got kids. And I got kids. I got to watch them grow up and do after school activities with them. They're older and stuff. So yeah. Well, just to wrap things up here, where can our audience find out more information about you and your work and everything online? Yeah, I mean, my website is WWW dot Andre Elijah dot com. My Twitter is on Elijah. So if you want some industry hot takes, that's probably the place to go. And then my website, that's where the portfolio lies. And if you want to know the work that we've done or the stuff we pitched and rejected section, it's all there. Sounds good. Well, Andre Elijah, I want to thank you so much for coming on the show. I mean, just hearing this kind of like, I don't know, almost this whirlwind of activity that you've got going on, not just with what you're doing now with the studio, but what you plan to do in the future, and really how you've had this passion to do this for such a long time. I think it really kind of points to the fact that while these technologies, VR for instance, have taken a long time to kind of get off the ground, there's been this constant steady push by people like you to really push things into the, not just the mainstream, but to the next level to create experiences that in the future we'll be talking about for years and years to come. So thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate it. I appreciate you, dude. Thanks for having me. It's a lot of fun. Big,.

"So at a singling one out would be kind of weird because like I was literally gone up to the top execs at meta formerly Facebook and being like, hey, I really want a meeting with so and so and then they send a message in the next day I get a meeting with that person. It's just one of these things. I think VR and AR kind of I don't think anyone who that's in it like really in it isn't a geek. I think we all identify with each other and really profound ways. And so there's a level of humility involved in the industry that's been really great. You see inside of industry slacks and Discord groups and everything. We're all sharing information. We're all sharing learnings. We're all helping refine each other as pitches and play testing each other's games and applications and it's much as it's on Elijah immersive. There's a lot of people on my team and there's a lot of people not on my team that have helped out and helped to get us where we are now. So it's really one of those things takes a village to raise a kit. So I think we're no different. If there's somebody that's out there that's been listening to this and they want to follow in your footsteps, whether it's like, I would imagine just getting into this world of AR and VR. Like what advice would you give them? I would say just do it. I don't want to sound flippant with that. But this is one of those industries where it doesn't take a whole lot to be able to get in and start building. When I worked in film years ago, you needed, you needed more than a handycam to have a good-looking image. You needed more than just iMovie to have a really solid edit. And final delivery, right? You need the color correcting and all that sort of stuff. And so you have all the software and hardware considerations and all that. With AR and VR, you need a not so powerful computer and a $300 headset and you're off to the races. Game engines are free. Unity and unreal are free. They have lots of example projects and tutorials online, and you can follow the gate here, find your footing and start building. You don't need a powerful computer because these headsets are all running mobile parts..

"And we did it for Beyoncé and that just kind of we act that shit together. It wasn't supposed to work, and it did. So all of this stuff, you learn by doing. You learn by throwing yourself into a really uncomfortable situations and just saying, fuck it, let's just figure it out. So, I mean, that's kind of sled me from thing to thing, and it hasn't failed me yet. You found that the studio back then last step studios, and based on what I've heard, your current studio kind of evolved out of that over the course of a weekend. How did that happen? Yeah, I mean, I've had multiple studios, I guess multiple studios under different names. When I keep on using up all the cool names, that's why it's Andre Elijah immersive now because I just can't come up with any more cool names that should be the name of a company. So in that company, I founded it with another student from Ryerson. And we wanted to make video games. And on day one, we realized, oh crap, video games are very expensive to make. Very expensive and we don't have money because we're broke students. And so we pay for it immediately to doing architectural visualization work. I'm using real-time engines. And so it was initially Unreal Engine. If the work that we were creating in unreal, it looked cool, it was realistic looking and we could change materials on couches and our walls and stuff and then press some people. But they ultimately came to us for more traditional rendering work or dollhouse renderings and some static renderings. That sort of thing. Because game engines were so new to the real estate market. It wasn't, you know, it didn't really get a lot of pickup. Ultimately, I think we wanted to do different things. I saw the demo of the HoloLens. I think it was at E three where they showed off the Minecraft demo in AR and I thought that was really kind of awe inspiring and I wanted to try my hand at making something like that. You know, I didn't have the computers to do it. I didn't have the know how to do it. I just wanted to do it. One of the same time, you know, the Oculus KickStarter had popped off and VR was trying to find its footing with Palmer at the helm and there was something new and sexy and crazy about it that I really want to be part of. And it just reminded me of the same energy as so many other things that I chased over the years, whether it was doing the post production stuff and final cut or I was getting hands on time with the red..

"We had some guys that went off to New York and worked on the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. We had a couple guys go off to work at visual effects houses. We had some that went off to China and worked in documentary films there. And so I guess they all kind of took me under their wing and I got to kind of see life through their eyes for a while and day onboard me to their projects as this young kid that was getting really shitty duties on their projects, but it was dope. And eventually, I got good at editing. So I became an editor at freelance editor while I was still in high school and all that. I ended up working with ray on television, Hong Kong. I was editing some of their documentaries and a buddy of mine that I worked with in the corporate world. We were both moonlighting in the film industry. He ended up going to the American Film Institute. He became a directing fellow there. And I edited the three short films that got him accepted into the American Film Institute. So that was just that kind of set me up and then I worked at my first agency ever. I worked at as a video editor initially, kind of cutting together demo reels for them and content for their clients and then they turned me into a flash developer before flash got killed off by Apple. Steve Jobs in one letter, they turned me more into a dev than anyone else and kind of let me see what happened when you press a button and something bounces on a screen. They did that. And I think in a big way kind of set me up for where I'm at now. So you kind of got introduced in the tech at an early age, but through media. I think that's pretty cool. Yeah, I mean, I really just always love the creative process and being able to geek out to kind of pull that process together. It's been a lot of fun. It's been a lot of fun and you see a lot of stuff and yeah, I think the common thread in my career though has been being on the cutting edge of technology. So whether it was the film and using Jane TS versions of file with the pro on these ridiculously powerful computers, I did a stint at Canada pension plan, investment board. So I was a systems analyst for them. Working on some hardcore service stuff years later after film and agency stuff working in AR and VR again cutting edge of technology. So I think that's always been kind of the constant in my life and in my career. And now you went to Ryerson university, which I think by the time this interview comes out, people know it's now Toronto metropolitan university. But you majored in fine and studio arts as part of their new media program, they're like, what was your time there? It wasn't great. You know, so I went to I went to Ryerson because the founder of my first agency, he was actually in my batch the first batch of new media graduates at Ryerson. That guy has always been like my hero and I love him to death. Shout out to Spence Spencer Sanders. I kind of want to be like him. So I went to Ryerson and learned hop into the new media program over there..

"What do you think is going to set each experience apart as these technologies become more readily available? I think part of it is understanding the tech and how to make it work and understand the limitations and Polish. Everything that you do, like I said before, you've got to come correct. So when we're creating these different experiences, some of them are games and some of them are applications, mixed reality applications that add a layer of utility on top of your physical space, right? Your home or whatever. I think user experience is really important onboarding users that have never touched a headset before, is really important letting them feel comfortable and getting them to a point of comfort where they can share with their friends, put on this headset and try this thing out. We need to kind of stop getting away from these high end technologies as this kind of tinkerer space or this hardcore technology space and realize that's for everyone. So I think polish and onboarding and taking the ego out of it is really important to kind of grow that adoption. Now we've talked a lot about your work. We've talked for the past 30 minutes about your work. Let's kind of switch back to the real world. Let's learn more about Andre Elijah, the person, the man. Tell me about where you grew up. Yeah, I grew up in Toronto, middle class family, parents working their asses off to give me a future kind of initially wanted to be a child actor and got into that for a little bit. And that kind of kicked off my whole film industry thing. So I did a lot of auditions was in some commercials and a couple of small movies and that sort of thing growing up and really loved the energy of being on set. I really loved being creative with people. So I think kind of set the tone for the rest of my career..

"Need the Indies kind of lay the groundwork for everyone else to follow and you just make sure that the Indies get their flowers and they get their paychecks so they can live another day. That makes a lot of sense. That makes a lot of sense because what you are seeing are a lot of small studios and independent developers kind of trying to stake their claim and now the larger brands are kind of trying to rush in and now that they see that, oh, this is something that I think we can be a part of in some way. Now they want to try to rush in and get a piece of it. So that makes sense. But, you know, some of these considerations you're talking about. I mean, there's so much to think about with quote unquote the metaverse. There's virtual well-being. There's like economics around NFTs and stuff. There's intellectual property, like how do you factor in these other types of considerations within your work? Do you think about that stuff? I mean, no, I try to limit the scope of what I do to kind of exclude all that or else I wouldn't get anything done all day. Okay. You know, our business right now on the game's front, we've got a couple of original games that we're working on, and we've kind of become the masters of porting games. So we have access to the IP. We don't have to worry about any of that. So we're in a good spot there. And then when it comes to the agency side, I mean, obviously, we're working with the brands and agencies. So IP, again, isn't really concerned for us, because they're coming to us and saying, use our name and do this thing. So I think the way I've kind of tackled this, we kind of get around all of that. I don't think I have as well as the studio is doing. I don't think I have enough dollars for all the lawyers that would be involved with everything you're mentioning. That makes sense. I mean, you know, let the big companies sort that out. That's what they're paying for, right? Exactly. Yeah. I love that you've got this portion on your site with rejected projects. Why did you decide to show those? Yeah, so it's weird, man. So a lot of what people do when they're indie is build products and projects and prototype things, but if you take a look at their portfolios, they only have the finished projects, the sexy ones, the ones that shipped. And you never know about what happened in those three months or four months between them shipping stuff. You never know what the back story is. You don't know the genesis of so many of these things. And I found myself for a while not shipping projects, and doing a lot of prototyping and having a lot of discussions. And I just wanted an avenue to kind of show it off. And put it up in a way that's like, hey, this is not final. It's not shipping. It's not representing anyone. But these are the things that we're thinking about. These are the conversations that we're having behind closed doors. The people that we're talking to are probably people that you would want to want a product from or at least a conversation with to figure out what this would look like. And ultimately, I just said, you know, one day, fuck it, I'm just going to post all this stuff, go and sitting on all of these decks and all of these ideas and all these email threads and conversations that I've had, why shouldn't people know about it? They're not secret..

"And so you've got all these games that are being able to run in a stand-alone form factor. And then if you want some of those PC only experiences, then you can connect it with a cable or even wirelessly to your PC and have it be a PC headset as well. So I think if you want to get into AR, it's going to be SnapChat on your phone for the time being. And if you wanted to get into VR, then it's going to be met a quest. And even with the quest, there are enabling augmented reality and mixed reality experiences now too. It's a black and white pass through, but all your content is color. It's really compelling. I have a client that bought me well, actually I had requested him to get me a meta quest two instead of paying me a deposit. It's still in my closet. I haven't broken it out yet. I need to give it a spin. We can play together, and you can add me. And I will, I will on board you. Nice. Now, you've kind of mentioned, all right. You mentioned these earlier clients of that you've worked with. You said snap, you mentioned just for some of the others, I'm looking at your website here. Uber, Sony, Drake, Beyoncé, like when you're working with these brands, are you seeing any specific trends when it comes to the type of immersive experiences they want to create? I mean, early days, VR was very much driven by hype. So you basically wanted to have a very basic project. Keep in mind the capabilities when VR, this wave of VR was popping off a few years ago, 5 years ago. The capabilities weren't really as flushed out as they are now, right? So it was basically you could look around and if you're lucky you had motion track controllers, but you're still tethered to a PC. That wasn't very powerful, especially when it was driving a stereoscopic two views at 90 frames per second. So you're limiting what you could do. And early days is basically let's build this thing attach a celeb or a big brand to it and get press. And so basically you're building projects just to get press because there really was no market to make money. So you're getting paid to build the experiences and your metric was, how many views and how many articles that you get. And I think that did a lot of harm to the industry because we're creating anything really of value that stood the test of time. People weren't getting much utility out of it and it hurt the space. And that's why when I say I'm one of the lucky ones that still around, I mean, 90% of my peers have died off in this industry to go to adjacent industries or something completely different because there just was no way to make money in VR for the longest time until the last couple of years with the advent of the quest and quest two. So I think now we're at a point where we have enough data and we have enough users that we can make a go of this if you do it right and really create value.

"TV station called the new VR and they carried the R troopers. Yeah, station based out of Barry Ontario. Oh wow. So interesting thing, do you remember the black guy that was on there that played JB? Yes. He works in gaming. I've had him on the show before. What? Yeah. Yeah. That is why. He told me all the like behind the scenes like that show is so chopped up. It's like the video form of like, I don't know, like scrapple or something. It's like a whole bunch of stuff taken from different shows that they cobbled together. And it's wild. It's not even from one show. It's like from 5 different shows that they put together to make that show, 'cause they have like different outfits in VR grid versus when they're fighting the monsters and it's so funny. There's a video on YouTube if you want to check it out. There's a video where the cast got drunk and did like a voice-over or one of the episodes. It's so funny. It's so funny. That is awesome. This makes me really happy to hear it. 'cause it's funny 'cause no one knows what the hell the arch troopers is. You can mention Power Rangers and everyone knows that occasionally you can mention masks rider and people will get that because it's just common rider. You mentioned VR troopers, no one ever knows what the hell you're talking about. So, I mean, you made me really happy right now. Yeah. I mean, but to kind of go back to my earlier point, like VR is really tried to pop off since then you had Nintendo with the failed virtual boy. You even had video games that had virtua or virtual in it like virtua fighter. There's been all these attempts to try to make virtual reality really a big thing. And it seems like, as you said now. Solid VR missions, right? And I think it was like Metal Gear Solid two. It was all these simulated missions that were quote unquote in VR. But even now, as you said, there's been this perfect storm of like, I guess the pandemic and the technology becoming at enough of a consumer price point where it's starting to become commonplace now. Yeah, 100%. So with your studio, like what does a typical day look like for you? I don't really think there is a typical day. I mean, you know, it's everything. So right now we've got multiple VR games in production, one is kind of midway ish one is at the tail end and we're about to go into certification. We're working on a number of augmented reality projects and advertising campaigns and things like that. So every day is kind of a mish mash of touching based on my team to see where things are at play testing our products and projects and kind of giving some feedback there, investigating new technology that we might be called to use in a campaign of some sort or an activation. Pitching projects that we ultimately want to build and do. It's a mishmash. Every day starts early and it goes late, but there's really no set formula, which is kind of whatever we get time to do. Yeah. Now, we're talking about VR virtual reality, which again, I'm pretty sure most of the audience knows about. But I also just kind of want to level set the conversation because there's a lot of terms when we talk about these immersive experiences that get thrown around. AR, XR, the metaverse, can you kind of give us a couple of definitions of terms that are sort of widely used in this space?.

"For this week's interview, I'm talking with Andre Elijah, award winning immersive director, creative technologist, and the founder of Andre Elijah immersive. Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Andre Elijah and I'm an immersive director working in augmented reality and virtual reality. How has the year been going for you so far? I can hear from in the background that you probably have started off this year with a pretty big announcement. Yeah, my twins are born in January. So yeah, I guess you can hear them in the background I've got noise canceling headphones on. No, no, no. You're all good. Congratulations. Thanks, dude, yeah. It's been a bit of a shift. But no, it's been good. How has it been kind of juggling work and family? Are you sort of finding that balance now? No, it requires a really good partner that can take care of things on the home front while I work maniacally at all hours of the day and night. Well, let's jump into that work a little bit. You have a studio, Andre Elijah immersive, and you just recently celebrated your 5 year anniversary. Congratulations on that. Thank you, sir. Tell me more about it. It's basically a studio where we build everything we want to see in the world. There's multiple parts to the company. We're building games. We see games as the major catalyst to enable these new mediums and platforms. And so we want to be there and kind of build the content that we think will sell units and sell headsets and make this augmented reality and virtual reality future pervasive. And then on the flip side, we also work with a number of agencies and brands doing marketing projects, ad campaigns, that sort of thing, building interactive elements of that, or activations augmented reality activations, metaverse activations, all kinds of stuff. So we're constantly busy, probably a little bit too busy some would say, but no compliance. I mean, this year has been absolutely mental, I think. I'm really lucky in that I was able to survive this long in this industry. A lot of people thought that VR in particular was going to pop off multiple times already, and it didn't. And really kind of found its footing during the pandemic. There's a lot of things that kind of came together. Everything from Oculus quest two, I guess, now meta quest two, everyone being at home with the pandemic and needing something to do. The rise of VR fitness was really another thing that kind of popped off and helped sell headsets and find a user base. And so all these things kind of coalescing at the same time allowed for me to still be here and be in business all these years later. Definitely one of the lucky ones in that regard. I mean, VR as a technology I feel like has been trying to pop off since at least I guess like at least the 90s, right? Like the mid 90s has tried to gain some footing. I mean, the first and this is probably weird, but the first thing I think of when I think of VR is VR troopers that like really horrible, horrible show. Yeah, in the 90s. Yeah. It was basically a ripoff of the Power Rangers because there was the three VR troopers. I remember that..

A highlight from A Hunger Cry!

"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. I'm on your host, and on this podcast, the family opens their hearts to the cry of the Holy Spirit. Where is the God of Elijah? Where is the God of miracles? Where is Jehovah? The right now God. Join us in our cry to our father for a greater appropriation of his presence in this earth. We draw the Holy Spirit tonight, and we ask him to show us to speak through us, we don't understand. But our heart is yearning to function and do what it is you're wanting us to do. So show us, show us, reveal to us, we're not going to be satisfied any more with just a taste, and I draw on the Holy Spirit to show us that the guide us, and to speak through us and let us really see what are you doing, tell us what you're doing, show us. Well, we open our hearts. Our hearts are yearning to want to do and be what the lord wants us to do and be in this earth. In the name of the lord Jesus Christ. We agree with that. Christ called it a mystery. The mystery of Christ in you. The hope of glory. That's what the voice spirit was to do. Reveal, reveal. The mysteries of Christ. So we asked your Holy Spirit, reveal the mysteries of Christ to us. Show us leaders direct us. Right. There is a need here. We need the Holy Spirit. We need the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I just cry out for it, lord. I cry out for it. You know, I want the Holy Spirit. The outpouring, the descending of the Holy Spirit. You know, we can read till we're blue in the face. We can quote scripture we can do all this stuff, but where is that reality of right now of it functioning? Where's the functionality of it? But in our mind, we think we have an answer. But you know, I don't believe that's the truth because we can not do it in our mind. We have to have the Holy Spirit show us and teach us, and guide us. I want that reality that simple scripture that says, these things will follow those who believe, it's not saying those who are miracle workers, or those who are this or that, it's those who believe the sick will be healed, will raise the dead, where is the lack of connection that we should have to see the reality of these things taking place. We lose the desire to know and to have it. God, in part to us a hunger for the Holy Spirit. Lord, I wanted, you know, I believe health on my own belief. Right. Right. I don't even want to have all the right answers about it. I don't care about the right answers. Care about the outpouring of Holy Spirit. It'll be evident yes. Very it's time for reaching in. You know, I want to be able to say, we better run because that is a promise the size of a man's hand, and we better run because it's going to be a day of the fact that I know that was Elijah talking about The Rain. You know, I don't care about that. I want the reality of what is a spirit leading right now. What is he trying to kick us in the pants for? Christ was not led. He was a driven. Driven. He didn't wake up and go or father lead me today. What do you speak? He was driven by the Holy Spirit. He was little driven. It was no question. I've experienced tastes of that. Did I have to do something? I have to do it. And I get up and I go do it. Because I feel compelled to do it. Driven to do it. But it's few and far between. Lifestyle. That should be the way we're moving all the time. One of the things that we can do appropriate the answer, and then let that appropriation have an expression, you speaking about him being driven. Where did he get that? He got it from his father. And it was like you just said Alan, it was from spirit. To spirit. This when the spirit fell on him at Jordan. Right, that's when he was first driven to go into the wilderness. Where is the fruits from the spirit? That's what I'm asking. That's what I'm looking for. I want to know, I want to walk in those. It doesn't matter how many hours a day I wait on the lord, how many hours a day I pray, how many hours a day I be in the word, it still needs to work. For me, it's not good enough. That it works in the spirit, where I can't see it. I live here on this Terra firma. In this part of my body, God made too. He made all three realms, my soul, my body, and my spirit. I am beside myself because we talked about this for 40 years. It's kind of like God's going, well, how long will you put up with this? How long are you going to put up with not seeing my word manifested? In the earth. Just imagine for a second. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit happens, and it doesn't stop happening. Right. Exactly. But we're believing for that baptism of the Holy Spirit where he comes and he is so much more real than the air we breathe. And that he is leading us compelling us driving us to say or to do whatever, and out of that compulsion, things start to take place. But I don't want it just to be a talk on what somehow we can touch him. Where he hears our heart cry, he hears it, and takes notice, I need an overflow of the Holy Spirit. I would, from elisha, where is the God of Elijah? That's that is our cry. Where is the God that's making things happen? You know, where's the God of Elijah, where brought down fire after he doused those altars with so much water. Where's that God? Or is the God who, who parted the Red Sea, who caused all the ten gods of Egypt to die. That's the God I want to see. That's the God I want to hear from. I don't want to be satisfied with just a puny little portion. If I am asking for an avalanche, I don't want to get satisfied for a thimble. We accept two little from God. God is very good about that. He'll give you a thimble full and see if you'll leave him alone. But it's only the beginning. I want to know his ways so much. I think it's his drive. He wants this in us, and were finally giving it an expression. Together, instead of just one or two, my focus is him, and crying out to him going, I need more of you. I need the Holy Spirit because how the heck am I going to be a channel to bring forth your kingdom which I understand is the bottom line? That's what you put me here for. To bring forth your kingdom in the earth, I can't do that with what little I have. I just can't, I can't follow the pattern of Christ. I can't. Christ couldn't follow it. He had to have the fullness of the Holy Spirit. I'm no better than him. Just like the disciples, there were bundling idiots. They're just like us. Until they had the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Of their something happened to those guys. Dramatic. Because they changed. You know, and excuse me if this is offensive, but it's not about me. We're not going to get ripped off. Right. You know, we're not going to be just like the guys in hebrews. They had faith, but they never got to promise. Exactly. They didn't get the promise, guys. You read hebrews. You read about Jesus, you know, we sing a song. That he would get his reward. I don't want to see another generation have to come and go. I want to see that fulfillment happen. I want Christ to get his reward. I want to see the fulfillment of everything he spoken on this earth to take place. I want to see those fulfillments. It's not about us. Never has been, aren't we his reward? We are. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life.

Christian Watson Explains How American Express Has Gone Woke

"American Express card holder for about 25 years. In fact, my friend Dave Ramsey gives me all kinds of grief because I've got one of those black cards, those centurion card and Dave says that's the biggest waste of money. I spend a lot of money to have it. I get some perks with it. You know, you get upgrades and all kinds of nifty little stuff. American Express has been sort of the gold standard for business executives and for people in the workforce and just I taught my kids when they became adults, get an American Express card. You got to pay it off every month. You get a good helps your credit score. It helps your credit standing. American Express has gone woke. First of all, tell us what American Express did that got the attention of a terrific organization like color us united. They done many things, unfortunately, and it's really unfortunate that corporate America as a whole is going down this path. So American Express had their employees go ahead and sit in to a seminar given by Khalid Muhammad, the great grandson of the founder of the Nation of Islam. Elijah Muhammad, in which he instructed them to believe that capitalism is evil and racist. And that they have a goal. They have a duty rather to go ahead and get rid of its evils and racism, which is a little bit odd that a company founded on capitalism is bad enough in it. They released a document called building allyship in which their employees were pitted against each other on the basis of their identity and their individual characteristics. And some employees who were not considered to be privileged were given precedence over employees who are considered to be privileged. There's one part in that building allyship document that actually says that it gives an example of an Asian woman not feeling represented in a Zoom call and basically says that an Asian woman or a black woman or whatever woman on the basis of their skin colors wants to speak. You should just be quiet and don't speak up or against them or don't say anything about what they have to say. So this is a kind of inversion of what America is all about.

John Zmirak: Whoopi Goldberg, Anti-Racism, and the Priests of Baal

"About? Well, I've got a new piece up at stream dot org that I hope people will check out and the title is the mild reasonable Whoopi Goldberg anti racism and the priests of ball. I love your titles. They're so catchy. Say it again. Thank you. Say it again, please. Whoopi Goldberg anti racism and the priests of ball now piece of ball. Goldberg is my favorite text. Anti racism and the priests of ball or bail depending on what part of Long Island you're from. Okay, go ahead. Go ahead. Well, Elijah making fun of the priests of bail after they do their competitive sacrifices and the priests of bail ring there, bring their sacrifices and pray for their gods to set them on fire. And Elijah brings a sacrifice to yahweh and the pagans fires don't start Elijah's does and Elijah mocks them. He says, are your God sleeping? Are they on the toilet? Maybe they're traveling. It was a great moment. If you don't mind, there are a lot of people who listen to this program who are not familiar with the passage of the Old Testament to which you referring, so can you, can you just set that up? Because this is one, you know, it's interesting because if you read the Bible wrong, you're going to start with numbers and you'll get confused and then you'll put it aside. There are stories in the Old Testament that are so extraordinary. They're historic set pieces. It's kind of like, you know, the exciting parts of Shakespeare, the parts that you remember, one of those is exactly what you're referring to. It is just one of the most dramatic moments. I don't think it's ever been portrayed on film. I imagine it has not. No, I don't think so. And it would be fun to do it in a somewhat for humor. Like I like to see the Coen brothers do the book of kings. I think you and I are going to do it,

The Importance of Citizen Journalism in the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

"Elijah talk about the importance of citizen journalism when it came to what happened in Kenosha that one night. Well, the importance is in the fact that all of you guys here have a phone in your hand. And while the media had billions of dollars of funding, they couldn't do what a millennial could do or Gen Z with a phone in their hand. My screen is cracked. I have a fat Italian guy shirtless on the front screen my friend eating chicken strips in Las Vegas, using that phone. That device that communist device or the company that hates us and taking it out there and doing what the media won't do, which is to risk your life because you have to take a risk to get value and you have to just be there because the media will never be in the right place at the right time because they're intentionally not telling the whole story. They're liars, they're sick, they're demented, but you are the truth tellers. And that's why independent media is so important. It's because we're the only ones still willing to tell the truth and that's what it takes.

"Know it was maybe he didn't check the weather before he sent him out. His word. Is the weather forecast? Ask Elijah. Elijah said, it's not gonna rain until I say so again from the word of God that comes from my mouth. If Elijah had that kind of power the prophet over nature, what kind of power does Jesus have over the situations of your life? He's gone. He's sovereign. He's the bread of life. He's the solid rock and he's the living water. Oh yeah. The solid rock. We sing about on Christ the solid rock I stand. Absolutely. He's a firm foundation. He's the same yesterday today and forever. God doesn't change like the shadows change. God doesn't change like your best friend changes. God does change like the hair color changes. God doesn't change like cultural climates change, but seeing the same God who could be called the solid rock is also the living water. He was standing by the sea. Because he wanted to teach you that real faith not only has to be solid. It has to be fluid. Why did he teach on the body of water? Well, one because the storm will help you learn the lesson. But number two, the same way that I see operates is the same way that faith operates. Which is why I think he liked a fisherman to be his disciples. See a fisherman has to know that the fish that we're here in hour ago might not be here an hour from now. The fish that weren't here an hour ago might be here now. To follow Jesus, is to flow with Jesus. What better place for him to call a disciple? Than standing by the lane. See Jesus hasn't even said anything yet, and he's already preaching. He's already preaching just by where he's standing. He's standing by the Lake, and he's like, hey, everybody. Look, before I open my mouth, you see this? See how it's calm right now? It might not be calm tomorrow. Life is like that, but you could trust me..

"We want people to give generously. Actually they're battling efforts by some local and state governments to close churches during the pandemic. Okay they're fighting for free speech. Let's listen to adf's senior counsel. Matt bowman let's hear that and these are churches that are following mask in cdc guidelines. That are just saying it is important for us as a congregation to come together and worship together. We've been able to get over. A dozen victories on behalf of churches getting laws struck down getting victory sunday. Churches are able to meet together once again. We are literally keeping the door open for the gospel in those circumstances. You you've got to care about this. I mean i'm just saying this. I don't want to tell you what. I wanna joining you to take this seriously. We are in a battle for the soul of america. Religious liberty is at the heart. I'm not just saying this the reason. Atf comes to us to raise. Funds is because they know that this audience cares about that. And now if you don't care about that. I'm just telling you folks you must you should. It's the right thing to do. The nation hangs in the balance. If we don't have religious liberty everything goes if they can silence the church. The nazis did it in the thirties in germany. That's what any big state government tries to do if you don't push back because you're free because you can in the courts in the court of public opinion you will lose and so we are losing allies. Offending female is fighting for us. They're our last hope. I mean i'm not kidding. They're going to supreme court their winning these cases.

"So what else do we need to know about. This film send proved people can go to send proof dot com and they will go to prove dot com and share it on social media. Please folks we have to do our part. But what else have we not covered. I think it's a film skeptics. Love the ones that i've shown to. I had friends that have left the faith in. They're like i cried throughout the entire film And so. I think it's something that if you have a sceptical friend they will enjoy it. Because of how balanced both sides are being treated in it. And it's a call. It actually puts the burden on us as christians. I'm not saying atheists change anything about your life. I'm saying we. Christians need to present evidence. Let's do it. Let's step up to the plate. We're being asked for this. And if god's healing people there should be some what a wonderful attitude. I could use some of that i think no. I think we all have to be honest. Is that we do react to people on the other side of the equation and sometimes we were reacting to much. We ought to simply be saying you want evidence. There is evidence. And you've actually taken the trouble to find the evidence and to present the evidence What are you doing with yourself besides promoting this film. I guess maybe this is become a fulltime job it has. I'm doing that around the clock I i try to you know. Do some apologetic on the side. But other than that. This has just consumed my life right. I wanna get you copy of my book. Because i want you to be familiar with the start story in the camus story and of course you know the story of anthony flu anthony. Flu was one of the biggest atheist of the twentieth century. He came to faith. I thought it was through. One of the harbormasters In any event but he was not a friendship extension lowest atheist he was and but the evidence is overwhelming. I actually think that the more people look into it it becomes clear. But it's those people who really don't wanna look into it. They just they just buying the narrative of no god without really looking into it. They're scared to look into it because they may find information they don't like or they were presented with the sunday school version of faith and not adult version. And i think that something we as ministers can do better is. How do i present this to audiences with the questions they have. I went through church my entire life and never saw an archaeological artifacts that someone presented verifying the old testament. And so well when i get to seminary. There's all this stuff why why not coming up in. Oh man i love it. I love it. Did you know that they have discovered biblical sodom. Oh you see if you don't know that doesn't explain what we're talking about the information in this case it's overwhelming. Nobody knows anything. Well if even you don't know at night in here until recently how can we possibly expect the world out there to know that the old testament is historical right because we even. We're not hearing so we need to get this out there so i think people need to make films and you just did really congratulations. I'm excited they have done this now. Did you say it will be in theaters. People need to go to the website. Go to the website. We're talking about theatrical release and we're in talks about okay but send proof dot com is the website. Is there anything else that the website people find their. They'll find a place to share their miracles. They'll find just some stuff about cast and crew and how to buy digital. You're on dvd.

"Okay. Fluctuating to be challenged. I'm going to challenge you. I don't know who you are. But i'm going to challenge you. I often talk my nor my bugbear is People who claim to be intellectual who have a philosophical bias against faith. It's wrong it's a philosophical bias. It is illogical but on the other side there are people in in the world of faith who have somehow in a knee jerk way adopted a bias against the things of the mind against the intellect. There are people christians. There almost nas ticks Who don't want to hear about reason they just wanna be kind of floating in the ether. as though faith and reason are opposed to each other. So tell us elijah stevens. You've made the film send prove. Why do you see that in the church. Anti-intellectualism i think that happened. During the great awakenings. It was not a part of the church until like people like finney came along and said look to reach the frontiers. We need to make this stuff. Simple emotional end. God use that but it stripped out the mind and so in the american wait wait wait so finney in the nineteenth century during the second great awakening right. He kind of emphasized. Let's keep it simple. Let's not go into the intellect because we're trying to reach the people on the frontier. I mean he actually made a strategic choice to do that. Yes and that kind of split. The church part where you have high intellectualism on one side and low focus on the power of spirit and then high focus on the power of the spirit and high emotionalism. And it's like there's this divide but that hasn't always been the case you go back right. After the apostles you see a group of apologised ride rise up there debunking. The gods in enroll writing letters to the emperor's. We still have those to this day. And so what what we need is to bring the intellectual and the supernatural back together so that we can talk about it intelligently. We don't make mistakes in mistake. Natural phenomena for supernatural ones and at the same time. We're able to articulate what god has done in a way that open minded people would be willing to accept. It's fascinating to me that people get these ideas about christianity or about anything but science. That are just bad ideas. They're wrong right and they run with it And it's almost like they've got these invisible enemies you have. There are people. I know who just they hate the intellectuals or the cultural elites to the point that they are just reacting against them rather than meeting them on the ground and showing them right where they're mistaken but we'll so. I came up with a theory when we were talking about. Materialists and if you say the only thing that exists is matter There is no such thing as anything. Transcendent any god then logically. I mean if you want to get serious then nothing matters. If there's only matter nothing matters in other words there's no love there's no good there's no evil but they never wanna go there. They act as though i can have those good things and have my scientific materialist naturalist view but logically. They can't right and this is where we see. The rise of existential ism from is win going. There's no god you go. We'll how do. I live my life in this world and what they're forced to is. Just you create your own values. And that's what we're seeing in western culture as we become post christian post truth is everyone is creating their own values and it's actually tearing down the structures and institutions that gave rise to the west and where we're losing our ability to pass onto the next generation truth white so explain. What is existential ism. Existential islam is. How do i live in light of reality. So there's christian existentialist like kicker guard who i have to live as being before god and then there's atheist one who go. There's no god. And i've just got to figure this out and they all end up talking about the greatest philosophical question is whether or not i commit suicide like it becomes really dark really fast. Most tension list. We think of as like the french. Existential yes khumbu sar tra-. Yeah now. now i'm going to blow your mind. I think i'm going to blow your mind. You ready for this life stevens. You ready ready ready. Ready in my new book is atheism dead. I show something that i know. Almost no one knows this. And i'm so excited. I could burst. Camus and sartre both french atheist existentialism. They're probably the most bold about looking into the abyss. There is no god. How can i live right. Both of them at the end of their lives came to faith in the god of scripture. Really you're shocked. Everybody should be shocked in my book. I give you the details. But i was shocked and what i thought to myself. How is it possible. I've never even heard of this right. Now camus died. I'm sorry shark died. Nineteen eighty or something like that and there was. There were some people who wrote bitterly. They were angry. They felt betrayed. That sort had come to some kind of eight but nobody knows the story of camus. It was written by. There was a minister in paris. Who literally didn't write about this. Until he was ninety. Two years old so he wrote about this maybe twenty years ago and nobody heard of it you know it was like way past the death of of camus camus died at age forty seven car crash but i find this stuff so exciting that the two people who looked most rigorously into the horror of there is no god came out on the other side saying this is not possible there has to be something and they both concluded yes can move. Wanted to be baptized Sort i believe was accepted into the church On his deathbed but even before that he wrote about it we'll be back talking about interesting stuff. Sent proved dot com folks.

"I often talk my nor my bugbear is People who claim to be intellectual who have a philosophical bias against faith. It's wrong it's a philosophical bias. It is illogical but on the other side there are people in in the world of faith who have somehow in a knee jerk way adopted a bias against the things of the mind against the intellect. There are people christians. There almost nas ticks Who don't want to hear about reason they just wanna be kind of floating in the ether. as though faith and reason are opposed to each other. So tell us elijah stevens. You've made the film send prove. Why do you see that in the church. Anti-intellectualism i think that happened. During the great awakenings. It was not a part of the church until like people like finney came along and said look to reach the frontiers. We need to make this stuff. Simple emotional end. God use that but it stripped out the mind and so in the american wait wait wait so finney in the nineteenth century during the second great awakening right. He kind of emphasized. Let's keep it simple. Let's not go into the intellect because we're trying to reach the people on the frontier. I mean he actually made a strategic choice to do that. Yes and that kind of split. The church part where you have high intellectualism on one side and low focus on the power of spirit and then high focus on the power of the spirit and high emotionalism. And it's like there's this divide but that hasn't always been the

"I would believe that you had an armed growing machine and so that that obeying where our culture is. It's so ingrained in them that arm. Growing machines are more probable than god's existence right. But that's called illogical irrational and. That's what i'm saying. We have to call those people out on their lack of reason on their lack of proof. I mean it's it's preposterous the idea of materialism because i want my audience to understand this. There are people out there. Laboring under this idea. That science is the only thing that can show us anything running proof. Which is i'm just gonna say flat out ridiculous. It's totally ridiculous. We don't even operate that way in our own lives when you go into a court and you try to find the murderer. There may not be scientific dna evidence. Whatever but you may hear stories from different people. The people are credible. They have a track record. The people on the other side are liars way. And you make the case and you just say okay. There's no doubt that guy killed that person like you know it and how can you prove it. Well it's a court of law so you can't prove it like on a blackboard button. The fact of the matter is this is evidence that is not scientific evidence. This is people telling what they saw eye witnesses and so and so forth. So how have we bought into this preposterous scientistic. Not scientific scientists materialist worldview. When did that come into western culture. I think with darwin. And there's this thing where darwin comes along and a lotta the religious people you know be. Warfield is accepting darwinian evolution from a theistic perspective. But darwin doesn't like that and so he partners with huxley who comes along and says we won't god out of science. And so we've adopted. Something called methodological naturalism which is the idea that no matter what. if we're doing something scientifically it can never point to god. And that's in the dna of how we do scientific discourse today and it creates this lynn's where we can't see the fine tuning of the universe or we can't see that maybe there's a designer at the creation of life right and so we have to attack this philosophically in people play this game where they say. Well i just want scientific knowledge but it cuts you off from all forms of look. We have to be clear if you say the only way to know anything is via science right now. Science deals with the senses so the moment imagination enters the picture and you have plenty of scientists in the past. Said you know what i'm looking at these chemicals. I'm looking at these things. I'm going to posit thesis that this is what's going on. They are already going outside of technically science by trying to theorize what is happening. There is no way to even do science. According to these ridiculous rules scientistic scientists. These materialists are putting out there and these are the same people that say well that there can be miracles because by default. It's like a guy who says a baker and there can be no food outside of baking like it's a completely subjective statement right and we have to call him out on it. But that's why i'm i'm excited about this film. Yeah who how do you see this film getting out there. I mean you're doing this program but how what other ways people able to kinda bump into going into churches. we're going into theaters. People were showing in their small group. But this is the secret sauce of it is. It's a call to send in your proof. My vision is to see one hundred case studies published in the next ten years. Because i want to research this stuff and to start. Melting the evidence up because it's got to be done and it's got to be done at a level of rigor that you know. The world's intellectuals will notice this is awesome. I didn't know that been more exciting. So if somebody has what we would consider proof of miracle Or whatever or doctor willing to go on the record sure where would they submit that information just go to improve dot com and fill out a form and a lot of people don't have their medical records at their house. We help you get them. We have medical professionals that work through that entire process so we take the burden off of people so that we can get the information and we de identify them when we published. So you won't have people knocking on your doors but yeah let me see the hand that you grew in a flower pot. Come on so this. Is maybe the most exciting part of this whole film is that you are using this as a way to get people to send proof. It's just. the title is sent proof. Soundproof dot com. But you're actually using this to say okay folks. We know you're out there. Tell us your stories. We will do the research right. This is pretty cool. I really like this. And when we come back i wanna talk a little bit about craig keener. 'cause i used his books. Two volumes set of academic work on miracles. It's important folks. There is a lot of proof out there. If you care if you don't care we can't help you. We'll be right back. I'm talking to elijah stevens. The website is sin. Proof dot com. Please check it out as in. Please share with your friends. Send proof dot com. Hey folks. I've got to tell you a secret about relief. Factor that the father son owners. Pete and seth taliban have never made a big deal about but i think it is a big deal. I i really do. They sell the three week. Quick start pack for just nineteen ninety-five to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back hip or knee. Pain nineteen ninety-five about a dollar a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quickstart they lose money in fact they don't even break even until about four to five months after it you keep ordering it friends. That's huge people. Don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes pete. And seth are literally mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money..
