"Chan francis. We're talking about that issue about love and how we can get it wrong in both directions. And i know i have. I know i have and it's hard because we don't want to be talking about theology and rules all the time but sometimes it's the right thing to do and i'm just worried. The reason i become so outspoken. May to the point of too much is. Because i'm worried that everybody's pulled back there frayed to speak and i'm thinking there people out there who need to hear some hope or something different. They're just not hearing it anymore. It's not like it would have been thirty or fifty years ago and it's it's one of those things where we don't ever wanna make one segment of christianity or or one command like the totality of it all brain. I one of one of my favorite tests. You know getting beckett coke. I've had him on this program. He's way better guests than you love. Beckham one of my favorite statements was he was sharing about after he fell in love with god and began his relationship with god. He tells one of his friends and his friend looks at him and says well you know you can't keep sleeping with guys in and becca just looks at me goes seriously. You wanna talk about sex. He goes. I just told you i know the god of the universe and you about sex and the way we set up like that's it. That's what i'm trying to communicate like. We're talking about knowing the one who us and made us but we put sexuality and everything's the way beckett. I screamed when. I heard him talk like that. Okay finally someone who gets it. We are talking about knowing god. What arrogant you're talking about right now is knowing the creator. The judge this savior saying that we are partake of the divine nature. And so what. Color my skin is you know my my my sexual desire that. That's that's an a different category. We're talking about knowing god and that's our heart in. That has to come through. And i think so often we can talk about issues almost in a way that i find the whole thing fun anytime i've talking you find funny but i'd like to me. It's funny on both sides because the reason his friend said that because his friends like well you know in other words. Do you know wait a minute. You know that you can't do this anymore because the friends kind of wondering do you. Do you get that. Whatever so the good. The good news is that beckett's like yes and by the way like i'm so past that but sometimes you want to check like are you like. Are you tracking there. Because you do talk to people that say i'm a christian and then i kind of want to be like what would it be like born again like you read the bible. You love jesus or you just saying christian. Because i'm gentile because i'm not a jew. I'm not so. It's it's just funny as i said i think sometimes there's no right answer and i just find it. Funny that in the message. We were best but i love beckett and we need to get him back. Come on this program. Why did you write. But we've just got like thirty seconds. Why'd you write a book called until unity. Because it is all over the new testament. God's heart for us to become perfectly wine. Meanwhile in our twenty first century evangelical church everyone bashing each other and believing. They're doing that. In the name of god and i just think it grieves the heart of god and i wanna be busy doing what he commanded us to do when he returns and i see unity as a huge huge theme in our only chance at reaching the world. Well i'm glad to have unity with you. My friend francis chan. I know that the lord is already using you to bless me to enlarge my heart Just grateful for you. I hope to see you in person sooner. Rather than later Give my best to your wife. God bless you talk to you..

"And he's like dad. I mean he's just freaking out fifteen years old he goes. You don't jimmy his friend jimmy. Who has like this. He's been talking like that since he was a kid. he's seventeen. I wanna pay for an operation anything. Nothing doctors can do serious whilst that bad is horrible. I thought i will pay for. Tell me how much i don't want. That kid growing up blake that he's at camp first night. Everyone is getting healed. Jimmy is singing and suddenly bull. His voice turns into a man's voice. He freaks out runs on stage in starts preaching in a man's voice. You know hundred highschoolers renaming my son just like cline falls on his face in the fear of god and you know but as he's explained any hands of the jimmy and he's talking to me like this and i'm going what in the world just happened to you. He's crying parents are crying. I mean this it happens and you know i've even seen it happened several times since we've been together but i'm still like blown out of my mind. My kids are blown out of their mind. But that's where. I think we bothered when people talk about it like. Oh yeah. Blind guy opened his eyes and he saw everything. I know and you think wait a minute. That should be in the papers. You understand like that's a big deal and they're like i don't know i don't i don't get it. We talked about other stuff we talked about. I mean you were in san francisco for a long time and we talked about the gays gauge. How hard that is suddenly for the church to navigate because we have this biblical ethic and we know we wanna love people where they are so a lot of times. We don't talk about something because other people talk about it too much and navigating that and my answer is that there is no answer. You can get it wrong in either direction. I keep thinking of the the fifteen or sixteen year old boy who is struggling with something and nobody is giving him truth and hope they're just saying this is the path for you and if you don't go down this you're denying something fundamental or whatever and i i. My heart goes out to that kid. Basically who is growing up in a culture where you're even the church is not talking about helping him in a lot of people interested. They don't believe in that kind of heat that you could be healed or changed or anything like that so it's just hard. There's no right answer. And i think the key is like what you said. Your heart goes out to him. It's about this. Love like looking at a human being in loving them show deeply from within otherwise like i corinthians thirteen says. You're just like this noisy gong. You're just like this grading sound in his ears rather than going cash pie love you so much and and when i read this book we're going gonna stand before god and and he loves you. This is who he is but we are gonna stand before him and so out of love you want to be honest with some of these things in and at least encourage them he just just look at this book but let me tell you something this god created you. He knows everything about you. He loves you mentor. Stop in me to how. Let's pick this up. We're going to another break folks. I'm talking to francis chan. You're not going anyplace shine a little bit of folks couple. Minutes left with francis chan francis. We're talking about that issue about love and how we can get it wrong in both directions.

I can't wait till it comes out because i want to talk about it. There's stuff in here. That's gonna really shocked people. I mean i promise you you will have a hard time believing some of the stuff. That's in there but it's documented And it's god's i would say in time You know revelation of evidence proving him making it much more difficult to believe he doesn't exist. In fact i argue that believing. There is no god has become intellectually untenable. I mean genuinely. I don't mean that's my subjective. Call i mean it's not tenable you can say i'm agnostic. You can doubt the details. But whether there's a god i think has become a question that's Beyond questioning it's it's just you know it's like talking about whether the is flat. We really know if it's rounded. You know there's always gonna be somebody clinging To the idea that it's not a sphere but An obe late sphere. We're going to get better obe late.

"Francis you lived in hong kong as a kid. You said yeah. I five years of my life and you were raised. I mean what you would you just share a few seconds about losing your mother in childbirth losing a stepmother losing your father like i cannot imagine what that would be like. When did jesus become like real to you. Did you have a born again moment or was it a process. How how did that work for you. It was a process. But i would say in high school Youth pastor went to a youth group that some friends took me to and he got me started reading the bible and into this relationship where i'm up at six. Am as a high school student every day. Trying to begin this relationship with jesus and it was fascinating like the way he would answer. Prayers like all the stories we heard in kansas city. So many of those things began to happen in my life as a teenager. And i just i just was on fire. I just thought i. I need to tell everyone about this. Jesus owes high school where it all started for me. And when did you. Did you ever experience the miraculous or were you hanging out with those people and at what point you get with a group of people that says this is not for today. Yeah that wasn't until. I believed in it because i'd seen And i would But i never saw miracles. Other than supernatural answers to prayer. When i would pray but i never saw the miracles. They wanna went off to bible college in seminary. They told me that doesn't happen anymore. That stuff seized after the bible was was canonized and so I didn't believe in it for for many years. Even though i did as a kid but once i went to seminary that that one way and but it wouldn't you hear stories from missionaries or something. I always feel like you bump into missionaries. They tell you some insane story and you know it's real. Did that challenge you or did you just kind of put that on a box missionary box and yeah. I don't know. I kind of put it in a box and i was pretty hard core like this doesn't happen today. But then you do begin these relationships with people you begin to trust and they look you in the iron go note. This happened to me in your email. It's kind of like what we were going through in kansas. Where like gosh. That's hard to believe but it. It's not because. I look in the bible and go that perfectly squares with the bible. I just don't see that often. Yeah so. I think that's where it began to be surprising to me when people i trusted said no. I've seen things just like you read about in the bible part of the challenges that people who don't believe in the stuff hanging out with people don't believe in it and the people who believe in it hanging out with people believe in it and i noticed and this is what why it was fun to process what happened in kansas city with you is because you're living in this stuff sometimes. They're very annoying because they don't give it sufficient wile like they'd just say and then the guy turns into a bird and flies away and you hung. Hey hey shut up. What did you say. What are you to say. Like the guy's arm literally grew back from the stump. Did you did you say. Then what's wrong with you like you say like like like i'm chewing gum. You just talked about an insane miracle but they kind of act like well. Yeah they don't seem to be able to give it context so unless you're part of that world you just think those people are just kind of half nuts. they're not perceiving the same reality. I gotta tell you this story because after a kansas city mike. My two teenage kids went to summer. Camp with andy. At why ma'am and my son face times meat is. I'm driving to la. And he's like dad. I mean he's just freaking out fifteen years old he goes you jimmy. You know his friend jimmy who has his voice. He's been talking like that. Since he was a kid he seventeen. I wanna pay for an operation anything. Nothing doctors can do serious whilst that bad. It's horrible. I thought i will pay for. Just tell me how much. I don't want that kid growing up like that. He's at camp. i night every one is getting healed. Jimmy is singing and suddenly bo. His voice turns into a man's voice he freaks out runs on stage in starts preaching in a man's voice. You know hundreds of high-schoolers renaming my son. Just like cline falls on his face in the fear of god and you know but as he's explained any hands of own that jimmy and he's talking to me like this and i'm gone. What in the world just happened to you. he's crying his parents are crying. I mean this it happens and you know i've even seen it happened several times since we've been together but i'm still like blown out of my mind. My kids are blown out of their mind. But that's where. I think we get bothered when people talk about like. Oh yeah and then this plan blank. I opened his eyes and he saw everything i know. And you think wait a minute. That should be in the papers. Do you understand like that's a big deal. And like i don't know i don't i don't get it. We talked about other stuff we talked about. I mean you're in san francisco for a long time and we talked about kind of the gauge. You know how hard that is suddenly for the church to navigate because we have this biblical ethic and and we know we wanna love people where they are so a lot of times. We don't talk about something because other people talk about it too much and navigating that my answer is that there is no answer you can get it wrong in either direction. I keep thinking of the the fifteen or sixteen year old boy who is struggling with something and nobody is giving him truth and hope they're just saying this is the path for you and if you don't go down this you're denying something fundamental or whatever and my heart goes out to that kid basically who has grown up in a culture where even the church is not talking about helping him in a lot of people interested. They don't believe in that kind of heat that could be healed or changed or anything like that. So it's just hard. There's no right answer. Yeah and i think the key is like what you said. Your heart goes out to him. It's about this. Love is like looking at a human being in loving them show deeply from within otherwise like i corinthians thirteen says. You're just like this noisy gong. You're just like this rating sound in his ears rather than gone cash. I love you so much. And and when i read this book and we're gonna stand before god and and he loves you. This is who he is but we are gonna stand before him and so out of love you want to be honest with some of these things in at least encourage them he just just look at this slope. But let me tell you something this god created you. He knows everything about you. He loves you man their stuff in me too and i you know how let's pick this up. We're going another break folks. I'm talking to for instance you're not going. Anyplace.

"My brother. The book is until unity will be right back. Seems to rule you welcome. I'm talking to francis chan francis you just you from the moment i met you. You crack me up. You make me smile like there's something going on. And i just enjoy you when you spoke that sermon. Which again your book is called until unity but you preach unity and stuff and you did stuff. I mean i was dying because you know you you you said okay mic bickel and you start talking about mike and how you know because he moves in this crazy supernatural stuff that for you to ally yourself with him even just as a friend. People will want to cancel you that you inherited his enemies. And then you said something about chris read and as soon as you spoke about christian is like oh no this. He's gonna go down the line he's coming to me and sure enough you get to me and you say some uncomfortable stuff about me. Which of course cracks me up at the same time. I'm cringing but in all seriousness. I want to ask you. This is just in in in terms of what we were just talking about this total transparency. I trust you right when you say that i say things that bothered you or this or that or whatever like i always really want to know. What am i missing something. Because i maybe i don't need to hear it because i already know you know like i know what i'm saying. Something this or that or maybe. I'm being political and people like oh. I don't think we should say this or or or say that but you spoke some really funny stuff. It was like even as it's hitting me. I'm laughing because the way you said it and But i wanna be honest about that. I'm not i'm not worried about their. I'm ready to let go of something if it's not. Jesus yeah i mean i think what you do is similar to what i do are very in the moment like right now. I'm focused and i'm thinking what you're saying right now and that's great. It's fun it's spontaneous. It's who we are. We don't want to lose that But i think sometimes you'll make a statement and if a person knows you right okay. Then it's like. Oh yeah that's that's era in contracts that makes sense. You're right they don't roll show you write. It can sound like that again right you know. He doesn't love this group of at all. But i get it now. I can't say that so now. This challenges me right. Because i literally don't know which way that breaks because i think myself wait a minute. I used to worry too much about what i said. I was so worried that i didn't say anything. And then i think as you get older you lose some of that. But it's kind of interesting because i think to myself is my problem that not enough people know me And so that people can of reading me out of context. Because i know i challenged people because i kinda come at so many different things right sometimes like mr comedian joke joke other times mr bond hoffer other times. And if you don't know who. I really am and you reading me. I mean this happened a lot with trump. he would say something. And i'm from queens new york and i come from a world that's not filled with christians and i'd be like i know exactly what he's saying but there would be these people people leave. He just said this. Are you kidding us like my uncle. You d if you know him. He's you know. But they would kind of parse sentences and boom and and i thought we're kind of living in challenging times in a sentence because you do have to have great for people somebody says something and you have to say. Did they really say what could make them sound bad just by quoting them. But is that what you meant. So that's kind of. That's what's happened to me a lot. So i do. I want to be honest. I struggle with that. And i struggle with my responsibility to other people. Do i have responsibility to be so careful how you know what i'm saying. Yeah yeah. Because i i listen to. You made a comment about banner and but then you explained it later like you guys. I'm not talking about like. Do i believe black lives matter like that is ridiculous to even question that i'm talking about behind the scenes. I'm concerned about this. i'm talking marxist movement and but we're really gets dark though. Francis has because that that phrase has been taken over by people who i think are harming black people so it gets really crazy anyway. Yeah no i get it. I've been accused of things where i go. That is the most ridiculous like one. Time was talking about the the one time in my life. I saw god doing miracles through me and i. I just made the comment. Like i'm living new testament like i'm jesus right now you know now sure. Some clowns takes hold of that says look francis claims to be the messiah and on like have you ever heard me speak in mind higher life. Every message i give is about. He is way out there. And who am in comparison to his holiness but okay take the soundbite francis says he is the messiah. Well the guy that did that he may not realize that but he might as well say. I am the devil because that is the voice of the devil. That's the accusers. To grab what you say at a context. A hit you with it That's happening a million times and just the syrup behind it certainly not. Jesus we know. We know that it's people that just want to hurt you because they don't like you don't like something about i wanna ask you about your experience with mike bickel. How did you coming from where you are. Come to be friends with somebody. Who is you know in a different part of the pool. Yeah it was kind of an accident. invited me to speak at a conference looked at thousands of young people I said yes and then suddenly. I got all this hate mail of. Why did you say yes to him. And i'm thinking. Oh man why did i say yes to him was seem he seemed. Okay you know. And so when i got there i answer so many questions for him any..

"Want him crucified with christ. So it's no longer francis who lives but christ lives in me so we're in agreement here. Isn't that crazy right. It's crazy loose. The enemy saying i see your sin and you're like yeah i see it too and because i see it i gave it to jesus and he sees it and he forgave it and he's loving me you know. We cancel cultures the opposite of that. It just kind of wants to tag. You not realizing what i wanna tag myself. I wanna i wanna find those sins. I want to repent of them. Like why would you think i don't. That's what it means to be a christian. Isn't it anyway. I was just really moved by what you said that night. And i i'll i'll just have to post that a again. I whenever i have folks on here. I had chris redon. Actually we won't air it 'til monday but i like to know people stories and i didn't really get to hear your story. Can you share with us. What kind of a world did you grow. Up in a wendy. Do come to faith I know you're lost apparent early on year. Well i was born in san francisco but my mother actually died when she gave birth to me and so my dad's sent me to hong kong to grow up with my grandparents. Then he remarried. I came back to the states When i was like five and then my stepmother died in a car accident. When i was about eight. My dad got married again that he died of cancer when i was twelve. And so you know my time middle school. I've lost three parents already. And just got me thinking about i. I'm not guaranteed tomorrow. I saw my dad right there. Now he's gonna saw my step mom she's right there. She's gone on a revenue. My mom so it it makes you live with this brevity of life and searching for answers and when i began studying the scriptures. Gosh the way. God would answer my prayers when i began to believe in jesus and started this relationship. Just set me on this journey. And now i'm in my fifties. You know seven kids Two grandkids just wife is wondering and no gray hair. That's unbelievable we're gonna be right back. I'm talking to francis chan my friend my brother. The book is until unity will be right back..

"Is fascinating. Have you documented this. Do you have proof of this. Can you show me doctors records regarding us right. And then you've got this other guy. Chris who's like reading our mail telling us things about our own lives our friends at were going. How did you know that you couldn't have known that you can't even research that online and so we're just sitting there amazed at the stories that have this like history over the last fifty years of things coming true. Just like these guys said. And i'm skeptical your skeptical. You're wrong if you're not cynical right. I mean that's the whole thing is that i wanna be look. You're a fool if you're not a little skeptical and there are people in the body of christ foolish. They'll believe anything and then they. They can practically lose their faith when it's proved to be untrue. Because they're not really they're not being wise. You know there are people that will share things. And i think we have an obligation. Say we wait a minute. When did this happen. How did this happen because some people say that was a miracle and i would say like. I don't know that that's a miracle that might be a nice blessing coincidence but you know a miracle. That's when god shows up clearly and he does so. Don't confuse that with you. Know i got a parking spot or whatever anyway but you. When did you. I mean first of all you have a book out called until unity just came out a few months ago and you preached a message on unity. That really moved me. It was just an amazing amazing message. And i know it's online. I've shared a lot of people have watched it. But you said something there which i'll never forget. You said that you looked at mike. You looked at me and you said. I'm i'm standing with you and you said when you stand with someone you inherit their enemies that was a huge statement Just say a little bit more about that because that's the beautiful you know. I think you know sometimes in the christian world where like. Oh yeah unity. I love gary. This is great. This is beautiful and they don't realize the cost in that there's a cost for you having me on your show right now. Suddenly amusing using viewers. Like crazy right. Now they're just don. You're not even listening anymore. Yeah those followers drop off. I mean it is anyone who has an issue with me. I can't believe eric would have him on his show and in the same way. I don't know if you're aware but some people don't like you as well. I know. I know it's just go online to believe that. So now. Suddenly francis went on the eric. Metaxas show. I mean this is just this satanic. Let's tear them apart. Let's get them a raid to become friends it you know. Here's jesus commanding. You and i who are spirit filled people who shrestha the jesus died on the cross roads were sons of god and yet we feel this pressure like what we better not get too close even though jesus commanded us to love each other as much as he loves us. We're feeling this pressure from the quote unquote christian world to kind of hold each other at arm's length than there's all this pressure to do the exact opposite of what he's commanded. Well let's put it this way. The reason i think it's silly when people say well. I don't like you think to myself look. I don't like me either. You jug handle like i. There's a lot of stuff about me that i don't like so. What are you accusing me. Are you accusing me of loving everything about myself. And being totally sure. I'm right about everything. I'm not but if you love me. You can lovingly challenged me and maybe helped me to see something that i missed because maybe i did miss it but if you shy away from people you'll never be able to love them toward the truth and that to me is the problem. I've got many friends that are you know they think i've lost my mind Politically or something. But i won't turn my back on them. I don't care if you strongly disagree with me. Let me be your friend. let me love you. We don't even need to talk about that stuff but a lot of those folks won't talk to me. Something happened in their world where they can't break bread with somebody who thinks the way i do and i thought so. Why do i wanna hang out with you even though we disagree. But you don't hang out with me. And i think it's you're buying into you know we call a cancel culture but it's graceless is to say that i'm gonna find something about you you're out and i think you know why why. Gosh i'm so glad you said that. Even that first part. I actually write about that in my book if you read any of my books. But they're so short. And so fluffy that i i'll knock it out on the on the subway ride home. Hey i finished bond hoffer since we were together finished two weeks ago okay. It's such a harrowing read. I can see that you've lost your hair over this. It'll it'll good back. This happens a lot of people francis but are you serious. You read that book. Because that's it's such a i mean. Look it's got nothing to do with me. it's a. It's a harrowing beautiful story of a man of god. So i'm glad that you read that. Thank you seriously. Thank you bridge tradition. No i read the whole thing. I read the whole six hundred pages. It's it's a record for me. So you ought to be flattered and bowed to you as a writer you are if did give time. Thank you but what i was saying. Was i talk about how the exact same thing you said. I don't like francis chan either. I train i'm want him crucified with christ. So it's no longer francis who lives but christ lives in me so we're in agreement here..

Which is why. I am so impressed. With pete. and. Seth talbot they are on a mission. You rarely see this kind of focus and commitment seriously.

In fact i argue that believing. There is no god has become intellectually untenable. I mean genuinely i mean. That's my subjective call. I mean it's not tenable you can say i'm gonna agnostic. You can doubt the details. But whether there's a god i think has become a question that beyond questioning it's it's just you know it's like talking about whether the is flat.

Francis Chan and Eric Metaxas Reflect on the Impressions They Make With Others

"I'm talking to francis chan francis you just you from the moment i met you. You crack me up. You make me smile like there's something going on. And i just enjoy you when you spoke that sermon. Which again your book is called until unity but you preach unity and stuff and you did stuff. I mean i was dying because you know you you you said okay mic bickel and you start talking about mike and how you know because he moves in this crazy supernatural stuff that for you to ally yourself with him even just as a friend. People will want to cancel you that you inherited his enemies. And then you said something about chris read and as soon as you spoke about christian is like oh no this. He's gonna go down the line he's coming to me and sure enough you get to me and you say some uncomfortable stuff about me. Which of course cracks me up at the same time. I'm cringing but in all seriousness. I want to ask you. This is just in in in terms of what we were just talking about this total transparency. I trust you right when you say that i say things that bothered you or this or that or whatever like i always really want to know. What am i missing something. Because i maybe i don't need to hear it because i already know you know like i know what i'm saying. Something this or that or maybe. I'm being political and people like oh. I don't think we should say this or or or say that but you spoke some really funny stuff. It was like even as it's hitting me. I'm laughing because the way you said it and But i wanna be honest about that. I'm not i'm not worried about their. I'm ready to let go of something if it's not. Jesus yeah i mean i think what you do is similar to what i do are very in the moment like right now. I'm focused and i'm thinking what you're saying right now and that's great. It's fun it's spontaneous. It's who we are. We don't want to lose that But i think sometimes you'll make a statement and if a person knows you right okay. Then it's like. Oh yeah that's that's era in contracts that makes sense. You're right they don't roll show you write. It can sound like that again right you know. He doesn't love this group of at all. But i get it now. I can't say that so now. This challenges me right. Because i literally don't know which way that breaks because i think myself wait a minute. I used to worry too much about what i said. I was so worried that i didn't say anything. And then i think as you get older you lose some of that. But it's kind of interesting because i think to myself is my problem that not enough people know me And so that people can of reading me out of context. Because i know i challenged people because i kinda come at so many different things right sometimes like mr comedian joke joke other times mr bond hoffer other times. And if you don't know who. I really am and you reading me. I mean this happened a lot with trump. he would say something. And i'm from queens new york and i come from a world that's not filled with christians and i'd be like i know exactly what he's saying but there would be these people people leave. He just said this. Are you kidding us like my uncle. You d if you know him. He's you know. But they would kind of parse sentences and boom and and i thought we're kind of living in challenging times in a sentence because you do have to have great for people somebody says something and you have to say. Did they really say what could make them sound bad just by quoting them. But is that what you

Okay there's a brand of underwear for senior citizens called late bloomers okay. I know that that's falls. But i know that it's so clever that you made it up an underwear for senior citizens called late bloomers. That's very clever but it seems too clever for somebody actually have used it to create underwear for senior citizens because senior citizens would say. Why do i need special underwear. Exactly i kind of came up with idea on a bike ride however then i googled it and believe it or not. There is actually. It's mostly falls because it's not for senior citizens there's actually like anti-gun to where you can buy that's called late bloomers. And it's like they made it into a fashion called late.

"francis chan" Discussed on The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

"People will flock to it. And the name of jesus doesn't draw like that and yet when we pray hallowed be thy name i forgot. I want my actions to follow that. I don't like that people are attracted to certain people are attracted to mind name and will attend for that and yet the name of jesus is not sacred in our nation and it doesn't seem to be sacred in the church even and i want to be a part of changing that somehow lord and so. What does that mean. I'll do anything anything. I must decrease some ou- and your name must increase and then there is. I guess i want to ask you. This is just for me. Maybe listeners are like who cares. But i think i want to ask you. How do you fight that. Because i mean you've just even your book. I mean francis. Channeling people will show up to a conference. Because you're there people will buy your book because your names on it. And i can say like you know is because you have so many great things to say and i don't need to say that here. We know that. But how do you fight that of not succumbing to am one of those people. I mean it's happen. I can look back in life and see these moments of like flesh lee excitement. You know they were the first ones was. There was just this advertising for this conference and just had these names like stanley. Warren chan high bowls. Now is it or you might have been another name or two. And i thought wow mall you have to say is chan and they know it's me you know how many millions of fans are. They're stupid sinful walking. I remember that time seeing my face on a magazine and it was on every seat at this conference. And there's posing and i liked it and and seeing my name in print on a book and i liked it and there was nothing about it it was there and i never remember even another person i had asked. Hey can we get together. And when i got to his house i'm like oh man. Thanks for taking time to be with me and just wanna learn some things gleaned from you he goes off course i would take time for you. You know you're one of the top twenty podcasts. Which i didn't know that time he goes. Did you know you can look that up tunes because yeah you're number nineteen and number two and so then the competitive flashes like okay number two. I'm coming after you. You know it's like so so immature pride fall. I got caught up. I still get caught a only thing. That rings me. Back is when i am silent. My phone is gone. everything is gone. And it's me and all mighty god together just me at his throne and he shows me one. I've been doing to make. Halloween francis chan's name and to picture like i'm breathing. Because you're letting me. I should be destroyed obliterated in your presence because of your own and you sacrifice so that we can have this oneness and nail the live on this earth and i'm supposed to be making much of you. Oh my gosh forgive me. I am so sick changed me. I am so sorry in tears in his presence. And so when i'm close to him that doesn't happen because those who are closest to him you're not arrogant because even those high angels that are right there in his presence there the most humble they're the most holy holy holy is the lord. God on that's all they can say as they cover themselves up but the further we get away from him. That's when we can talk about ourselves but when we're staring at him regularly we don't want anyone looking at us. We are drawing attention to him and so for me. It is only been went on close to him and away from all the other noise that i can see my own san and recognize my need for god to humble me Well thank you for that. Even if it was just for me. I appreciate that incur. That word of encouragement. I think my follow up question for that would as people are listening. There are so many people to follow right now so many things to say. And i'm a podcast sir. And there are books and their podcast in their conference in their churches and their worship. And they're just like oh my gosh and you talk about this a little bit like these islands that we find ourselves and it's like are quote unquote tribe. What is your encouragement to those people to not even make much of francis or jamie but only much of jeez like what is your encouragement to them. And i know it's probably going to be no different than what you just said but there is just. We are inundated with people to follow who most of them probably good motives. Yeah i really believe that one of our biggest problems is we talked too much. And i'm about to pursue a season of silence just greater silence. The bible says you know with the abundance of words sin is not absent so the more i talk the more i'm gonna send and i just wonder anything about that early. Church and acts chapter four and says the full number of believers were one heart and soul before there was a bible and united income for hundreds of years later. And what did they do. It wasn't that much to fight about a stared at a piece of bread. Are you kidding me. Son of god roque his body in shed his blood. The aid drank in his presence. There was such unity. And you know when they ask. Jesus how do we pray he just said when you pray say this our father who are in heaven yes likely Five says you know card your steps when you draw near to the house of god. Don't don't come in and just start. Talking is people don't recognize that they're offering a foolish offering that is evil and what if believers spent more time in silence. You know it's like you get attacked in your first instinct. Is i gotta fight back in defend myself and everything else in. But that's just adding everything else. What if there is greater silence and we got back to like whoa just gay. That is beauty Think about the body. And blood. Of christ as i'm humbled in weeping look across from me. There's jamie on her knees crying over the bread and the cup in marveling at how could god so holy sacrificed so much for her and we're both just reaping looking at each other. What does look like can you. What what he say. How can we be how can repeat. Earn is present the if we spent more time doing that and less time talking which it seems like. That's what heaven is. It seems like there's more just staring at the throne in awe and listening to others just praising him collectively sing worthy is the lamb who was slain holy holy holy is lord almighty who was in his in his to come in the more we do that and humbly have this wonder and reverence for him. It's really hard to fight and you recognize how much you've been forgiven of and how huge that gap is between ham. Yourself is hard to be proud in. It's hard to fight on a danette. Same we.

"I've been a Christian pretty much my whole life, and you know, have spent a lot of time reading the bible, but I don't really know the lot of the distinctions between the gospels themselves. Tell me why the book of Mark stands out from the other gospels to you. And why it was something you wanted to teach through. Well, I think because okay. Like when I was back at cornerstone, I had taught to Matthew, and Luke, and John and I never preached through Mark. So honestly that was intriguing to me. I I mean, some of it, you know, is no real spiritual thing, it was just for the sake of time. It was a shorter gospel that we could could make it through. But you know, there's there's something cool about tot through verse by verse through books of the bible. There's something also that's beneficial when you can fly through something because the flow of the book a little bit more easily. And that's what I liked about the series was okay? We only have a few hours that's fly through this book. And you get something that I think you don't as -sarily get when you go word for word over several years. Having not, you know, you mentioned when you're a cornerstone preaching through some of the other gospels. What surprised you when you were doing this deep dive into the book of Mark? Israel, change, everything because you could touch it. You can you can imagine you see people walking around, and you're you're looking at their life and kosh literally standing here. Like, what would I felt like being on the mount of olives? And you know, maybe standing there with plasmas who's been raised from the dead and you're heading in. And here's Jesus who has you've seen it walk on water. You know, what I'm I so chronologically we've gone through this. And I I'm experiencing on that boat. I'm experiencing amount of transfiguration now on the amount of lives. And and everyone's going nuts because here's the most powerful beings ever stepped foot on this earth right here, and you're about to walk in the city and takeover or so you'd think and then suddenly you realize oh my gosh. He's going to be tortured. And if I follow my mom going to be tortured. And you start to think what would Francis Chan have done at that moment. Would I have found him to the cross or word? I backed off in like this little Christianity. This is real ended gets and you just realize. Wow. What kind of best sage have? We been preaching in. Oh here in America. Has it has it been a true gospel, and his my mind warped just because of the world that I live in and how can I scape from it? So I don't think it was a different in teaching Luke or teaching Mark. It was more just a context of being in Israel and teaching one of the gospels..

It would give us more time to digest each episode. Perfect. We are nothing if not teachable. We are here to serve the people's right. So not only is those lessons don't come in book form.
