Tiger Woods doesn't 'have much left in this leg' to compete

"Woods withdrew from playing at the tournament he's hosting in Bermuda this weekend. I don't have much left in his leg. The injury is plantar fasciitis in his right foot. I can take golf balls. It's the walking that just hurts. The plantar fasciitis is related to injuries would suffered in a car crash in 2021, which ended any hope of him playing on a regular basis. Geralt for the biggest ones and hopefully lightning catches in a bottle and I'm up there in contention with a chance to win and I hope that I remember how to do that. Tiger Woods also doesn't have much hope for the PGA Tour and Greg Norman Saudi funded rival league live getting along. Not with Greg there and his animosity towards the tour itself. I don't see that happening. As Rory said, and I said it as well. I think Greg has got to leave. Lawsuits and counter lawsuits have been filed. I'm Ed Donahue

Chiefs slog their way past beat-up Rams for 26-10 victory

"Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes opened with a touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce and the chiefs went on to beat the Los Angeles Rams 26 to ten. It was the only TD pass mahomes through on the day. We got to be better. I mean, obviously it's a great defense. We have a ton of respect for them. But we moved the ball kind of between the 20s and it seemed like we got down there and goal to go situations we weren't able to score. Mahomes finished with 27 completions on 42 attempts, rams quarterback where ice Perkins filled in for the injured Matt Stafford. He threw for a touchdown pass, but also had two interceptions.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I've got the pleasure of having Danny here who's the head of tax Australia full coin. Of course, we've done a lot with kindly in the past and it is the platform that I use to essentially bring everything together so that we can actually get our records and make it work. And what we want to be doing today is just discussing a few of the tax environments here in Australia. Of course, for different jurisdictions, there will be different laws and whatnot. But thanks so much, Danny, for taking some time out of your busy day to have a chat with us mate. Yeah, thanks, Greg. And it's great to chat. Yeah, look, if anyone's got any questions throughout, this is, well, we're going to be going for about 20 minutes half an hour. We'll keep it short to sync to the point because I believe you'll find a London after this, aren't you? I will be next week. No worries. So look, just to kick things off, I think one of the important things that people have been asking me, of course, this year we have seen Celsius go files for chapter 11. We've seen FTX Australia file as well for something similar and in different jurisdictions, BlockFi. We've seen the losses of Luna. There's been an awful lot of events that have had people make some fairly sizable losses. So I think maybe to kick this off, it's to maybe differentiate administration and loss and how we can work that in to tax filings HDL. Yeah, definitely. And I think it's a really important time to be discussing this as well, because it's only really after the fact that a lot of people realize, well, is there anything I could have done that could have helped me in this situation for tax purposes and often there are steps you can take along the way to make sure you keep good records and so on. So yeah, definitely a good time to talk about it.

Packed Black Friday sports schedule

"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

America's Christian Pulisic have the best opportunity to score, hitting the crossbar and left footed kick in the 33rd minute. The Americans had more good scoring opportunities than their higher rated English counterparts, particularly in the second half, but could not get the goal that coach Greg burr holt has team needed for the win. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group because that never wavered. American goalie Matt Turner was solid and net making three saves.

USC Professor Is At Center Of Controversy Over Chinese Word

"To what is going on at USC, Lawrence peck wrote about this this week. When a Professor of communications at the university attempted to educate his students about Chinese linguistic patterns, you haven't read this, this will blow your mind. This is a new story. You sure that this is new or no, it is new. Yeah. It just November 20th. Okay. Okay. I mean, there may be about something that happened before. It did, yeah. This is the writing just came out. It's about what's happening at USC over the last few years. Okay. When a Professor of communications at the university attempted to educate his students about Chinese linguistic patterns, explaining the meaning of a Chinese word that to the uneducated ear of American students sounded similar to the N word, he was reported as a racist and suspended from teaching the class. Now, do you understand what I just read to you? My dear listener, on some viewers, do you fully understand that? He was reading some Chinese words, and they sounded similar to the English N word. And he was reported as a racist. He was suspended from teaching for saying a Chinese word. Greg Patton is a professor at USC's Marshall school of business, and an expert in communication interpersonal and leadership effectiveness, whatever that means. During the fall 2020 semester, Patton taught an online class during which he spoke about the use of filler words in the speech of various languages. In order to fill a word is folks. Like would be a good one. That's a good example. So he said, if you have a lot of ums and hers, this is culturally specific. So based on your native language, like in China, the common word is that that, so in China, it might be negate negate may gay. To a native Chinese speaker, the word sounds nothing like the American racial slur,

Caller: The Hypocrisy of the California Injustice System

"The real point is this is a quick one. You're talking about the 25 kid depth down to California that basically were attacked and maimed. And yep. The perpetrator was released. But yet, the attacker on Paul Pelosi, he's still in jail. Man, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of the California injustice system. That's a great point. I didn't really think about that, Greg, but you're right. That guy is still in jail, and I think it's important for us to use the word alleged attack because clearly we don't have all the facts. And something is not quite adding up. They're in the Pelosi mansion in the Tony section of San Francisco, but to your point, I mean, you're right there is, I mean, look at what's happening right now in Washington, D.C.. How many American citizens have been locked up since January 6th? No trial. You're right. The Pelosi one, that is alleged. But this guy that did this thing down. Oh, he did it. California. There's no alleging on that one. That's right. And in my opinion, it should be no trial, no report to file, just he should have been shot on the spot. And it's just not there's nothing there's nothing. There's nothing to think about on that one, but you know, for the DA down there to drag it out and let the guy go, it just shows you just what we're up against.

Governor Abbott Calls for Investigation of Harris County, Texas

"So often we hear about these election improprieties, election irregularities. And then we just wait and nothing ever happens. Now, I'm happy to say this came out from Greg Abbott, the reelected governor of Texas. I'm calling for an investigation into the widespread problems with the Harris county elections last Tuesday. And the allegation of election improprieties in our state's largest county. By the way, this is a county that includes Houston. May result from anything ranging from malfeasance to blatant criminal conduct. So he's going to look into it and he's calling on people to look into it. And this is very new. But more importantly, I mean, I'm glad Greg is on this, but people will say Greg Abbott is a Republican and he didn't like the results because you know Greg Abbott in Harris county lost. Beto o'rourke got more votes than he did, right? However, and as you know, people that don't understand, Harris county is the largest county in Texas. It's almost 5 million voters. So Harris county encompasses all of Houston and a few surrounding areas and that's about 4.7 million people. But the most, I think, interesting part of all this is that the DA in Harris county, who is a Democrat, her name is Kim ogg is calling for an investigation herself.

Texas Governor Declares Border Crisis an Invasion

"Also in this hour, I want to try to get to what's happening with governor Greg Abbott. He finally declared an invasion an invasion on the border and I'm so glad that he did Republicans seem to miss the boat. I don't want to say it's too little too late. He's doing what he what he needs to do. Right now, wish he had done it sooner, but it's obviously needed, especially given the fact that we have Katie Hobbs who literally oversaw her own election. Absolutely unbelievable to me, but we had a Republican governor that sat by and did absolutely nothing, knowing this lady was secretary of the state and overseeing her own election. So it is what it is. Arizonans are going to have to get fed up, but I strongly suspect that part of the reason Greg Abbott is going full bore and has declared this invasion at the southern border. It gives him plenty of powers, but that in particular is I think a reason. And obviously, Republicans didn't do as well.

Mollie Hemingway Calls Out the GOP's Unpreparedness With Abortion

"I think one of the other kind of struggles people have is maybe we set our expectations too high. There is a debate on the right of the role that Dobbs played in this election. I do believe that in certain states, especially in the state races interestingly enough, it was actually an anchor, especially in Michigan and in Wisconsin in a year that otherwise should have been a very good year. We lost by 5, 6 or 7 points when we had really good candidates. What are your thoughts, Molly? It's very confusing to decipher it. I mean, you take very strong pro life governors like Ron DeSantis, Bill Lee, Brian Kemp, Greg Abbott, who signed effectively or, you know, who's in a state that essentially has an abortion ban, they all won their reelection, incumbent pro abortion supportive governors also did well. I think there was clear failure on the part of the Republican Party to deal with that issue. And it's criminal because they knew it was coming. They knew they had the leak. They knew it was likely to be overturned. They should have had a plan in place. And I saw that the people who support abortion spent $391 million on targeted messaging compared to 11 million for pro lifers. That's just inexcusable. And you might not win the issue. You know, it was a big change in abortion policy and one that many people had worked very hard for and had prayed for for a very long period of time. You can certainly get it to a draw and instead Republicans kind of did this ostrich head in the sand approach of showing that not only were they weak, but they were scared to talk about it.

One Bright Light in This Midterm Landscape

"There are not a lot of bright lights and this midterm landscape. But one of them, surely, is the steady movement of Latinos toward the GOP. Now, this is not a movement that has been completed. It is a movement that is underway. If you look, for example, at Florida, heavy Latino vote for desantis and interestingly, he seems to have won Latinos kind of across the board. With Greg Abbott in Texas, the results a little bit more mixed, but Abbott got a decent share of the Latino vote. If you look at the Rio Grande valley a special interest of W's and mine because Debbie grew up there, we had three Latina Republicans running Cassie Garcia and Myra Flores, who was in Debbie's own district where her mom lives. And then Monica de la Cruz. So normally one of them, Monica, dela Cruz won. But the other two actually came really close. Cassie Garcia was edged out by the way by a fairly conservative Democrat cuellar. Is that the guy's name Henry, Henry cuellar, and Myra Flores, I mean, this is a district that used to go easily 60 40, 20 point difference or more. Even more. And Myra got what, 43 or 44. And so the other guy, so does that still a ten point gap, but the point is the gap is narrowing.

I mean, just ran over and Greg Abbott actually won independence in Texas, which is so interesting. Lombardo won in Nevada. But it's just, you know, in Arizona in particular. I mean, I'm shocked and I'm just looking at the numbers as they are. And I'd love to have somebody walk me through them. I'd love to have somebody tell me how on earth this is conceivable how it's possible how Carrie Lake could win game day in person election day voting independence two to one and then lose them if somebody dropped off ballots. It's just, and we're going to have the final numbers tonight. So just so everyone knows, there's anywhere between 90 to a 100,000 Maricopa ballots remaining. I think they're actually might be more than that. In fact, I just got a text message here for anyone listening from Arizona, okay? Anyone from Arizona listen to this. I want to, I want to talk about this. He said, by the way, your advice to cure vote was a good one. My wife and I voted at 6 a.m. on election day. My vote was tabulated, but my wife and I, among them, was among the majority of people around whose ballot couldn't tabulate. We checked our status and currently neither of us are currently listed as having voted since the primary. So we're going to have Tyler Boyer on to kind of walk through what to do here, but there is a chance that again, it's a chance. I'm not saying that it's a good chance, but knowing Maricopa's incompetency, there's a chance that there's tens of thousands of ballots in adjudication in different buckets that haven't been tabulated. And that would end up kind of closing this turnout gap that currently is a little bit mysterious right now. So

"Could you see something like that happening? Well, to be honest with you with coach Belichick, you can see a lot of things because look what he did with Adrian Phillips. I mean, Adrian Phillips was a guy who I did coming out of Texas, and I remember saying to myself, well, this guy's a dime safety in the NFL, which he turned out to be, by the way. Yeah, but look at the way coach Belichick uses him. He's essentially, he's almost a combination linebacker, as you know. He plays Robert times. He covers tight ends at times, doesn't play a whole lot on the back end, but will on occasion. I mean, you know, what coach Belichick does with a lot of these kinds of players is really fascinating to me. And you know, he doesn't just put these guys in a box, which is why, you know, when they drift and Marcus Jones, I thought, wow, that is really intriguing to me because I think he can play multiple positions and my strong guess is coach Belichick's got the same thing, or he wouldn't have drafted him. Yeah, absolutely. Let's deal with the two running backs together here. They drafted Pierre strong as South Dakota state in the fourth round. They drafted Kevin Harris out of South Carolina in the 6th round, are they the same type of backs or are they different? Okay. They're different. Pierre strong, he's kind of a smooth linear darting slashing runner. He almost looked risen at times. He's got big playability. It's a little bit of a smaller back. You know, I think that he's probably not a feature type back in the league, but I don't think he was drafted to be one by New England. You know, I think that he can be a really good receiver too. He put the ball easily. I think there's much to be unlocked as a receiver. I think you can detach him from the formation. So sorry, Greg. Go ahead. In comparison to, say, James White is coming back from hip injury. They don't really have JJ Taylor, but and they've given him some shots, but it doesn't seem they're sold on him. Could he feel sort of a pass back role for New England given development? I think yes, he could. I think he could do that for sure. I think whether that happens this year, but that I can't answer because you don't know about his development, but I think he can be in that role and then be kind of a complimentary back. He does have big playability as a runner, no question about that. I mean, he's kind of a smooth slashing thing. He almost looks rhythmic when you watch him..

"Will skew things a little bit, <Speech_Male> but they have not been good <Speech_Male> against the run. It seems to <Speech_Male> be a good matchup <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> the Patriots in that regard <Speech_Male> and that they want to run <Speech_Male> the ball and be physical <Speech_Male> with Damien Harris and I assume <Speech_Male> or Monday streams <Speech_Male> and might be active <Speech_Male> this week <Speech_Male> to give them a dual <Speech_Male> threat. What do you <Speech_Male> think about that <SpeakerChange> side of the <Silence> ball? <Silence> Well, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you know, I <Speech_Male> think that that's an area <Speech_Male> that <SpeakerChange> they <Speech_Male> can exploit <Speech_Male> what the Chargers <Speech_Male> bring to the table. <SpeakerChange> I think <Speech_Male> the Chargers are <Speech_Male> not <Speech_Male> real strong at the linebacker <Speech_Male> position. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You know, one thing about bringing <Speech_Male> its daily is he <Speech_Male> will be very multiple <Silence> with his coverage look. <Speech_Male> So, <Speech_Male> you know, I think <Speech_Male> that the running <Speech_Male> game is a factor. <Speech_Male> I've always <Speech_Male> liked Damien Harris. <Speech_Male> He just seems to get <Speech_Male> nicked up. <Silence> But I think <Speech_Male> he's a <Speech_Male> he's a physical <Speech_Male> inside runner <Speech_Male> who's got some juice <Speech_Male> to him. So he's not <Speech_Male> just a big body, even <Speech_Male> though he's what, I don't know, <Speech_Male> two 20s in that <Speech_Male> range, is he? Yeah. <Silence> He's a pretty big <Speech_Male> dude. <Speech_Male> But I've <SpeakerChange> always <Speech_Male> liked him. <Speech_Male> I think Stevenson <Speech_Male> could well be up <Speech_Male> this week. You're right and have <Speech_Male> a nice one two punch <Speech_Male> of physicality <Speech_Male> and toughness <Speech_Male> inside. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> To sustain offense <Speech_Male> and keep <Speech_Male> Mac Jones <Speech_Male> in a position where <Speech_Male> they can be <Speech_Male> proactive with their <Speech_Male> pass game as <Speech_Male> opposed to being reactive <Speech_Male> and long yarded <Speech_Male> situations <Speech_Male> where the defense tends <Speech_Male> to have the tactical <Speech_Male> advantage. <Speech_Male> So I would <Speech_Male> expect the run game to <Speech_Male> be a factor. I think the <Speech_Male> charges are somewhat <Speech_Male> susceptible to <Speech_Male> that. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> would not surprise me at all. <Speech_Male> And I think they want to <Speech_Male> play that way. I mean, you would <Speech_Male> know better than I, <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> there's no way they <Speech_Male> want Mac Jones dropping <Speech_Male> back 40 times <Speech_Male> by choice. <Speech_Male> They don't want <Speech_Male> that to happen. Unless, <Speech_Male> you know, hey, look, <Speech_Male> if for whatever reason <Speech_Male> charges jumped out <Speech_Male> 24 6 in the <Speech_Male> second quarter, everything <Speech_Male> changes. But <Speech_Male> I don't think they're <Speech_Male> going into this game with <Speech_Male> the idea <Speech_Male> that Mac Jones is going to <Silence> toss it all <SpeakerChange> over the yard. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Yeah, absolutely. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> haven't seen a ton of film on <Speech_Male> the Chargers, Derwin James <Speech_Male> with him coming <Speech_Male> back from injury this year. <Speech_Male> Any difference in <Speech_Male> his play any difference <Speech_Male> in how <SpeakerChange> Brandon staley <Speech_Male> is using <Speech_Male> him as oh yeah, <Speech_Male> he's and I <Speech_Male> think staley <Speech_Male> has said this, but the <Speech_Male> film shows that <Speech_Male> he is the most <Speech_Male> critical piece because <Speech_Male> they play him at four <Speech_Male> or 5 different positions. <Speech_Male> So he can <Speech_Male> do a lot of different <Speech_Male> things. <Speech_Male> And they'll <Speech_Male> use him that way. So <Speech_Male> I guess in this game <Speech_Male> it would depend on <Speech_Male> situational <Speech_Male> football. What the <Speech_Male> situation is <Speech_Male> in terms of how do they choose <Silence> to use him? <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> if <Speech_Male> the Patriots <Speech_Male> continue to play a <Speech_Male> good amount at a 12 <Speech_Male> personnel with the two <Speech_Male> tight ends, you'll <Speech_Male> see him at times match <Speech_Male> up, but you'll <Speech_Male> see him at times <Speech_Male> beyond <Speech_Male> and on the ball defender <Speech_Male> and the run game. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> you'll see he'll be <Silence> used in multiple <SpeakerChange> ways. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Interesting. <Speech_Male> All right, <Speech_Male> Greg, well, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> that was a ton of information. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> really appreciate it on <Speech_Male> behalf of our listeners <Speech_Male> and the readers at Boston <Speech_Male> sports journal dot com. <Speech_Male> I greatly appreciate <Speech_Male> you <Speech_Male> coming <SpeakerChange> aboard and <Speech_Male> lending your insight. <Speech_Male> No, Greg, <Speech_Male> I enjoyed, you know, <Silence> you know how much I love talking <Speech_Male> football. <Speech_Male> Yeah. <Speech_Male> Absolutely. All right. <Speech_Male> Well, this <Speech_Male> has been the Greg with our patriots <Speech_Music_Male> podcast brought <Speech_Music_Male> to you by bet U.S. <Speech_Music_Male> with our special <Speech_Music_Male> guest Greg <SpeakerChange> hostel. <Speech_Music_Male> Thanks everybody <Speech_Music_Male> for tuning in.

"There are very there are very few like the patriot scheme where it's like, man, if we get that, that's gravy, but really we want what you do from the pocket is Paramount for us. And in terms of Jones, I think, and I'm curious what you think. If you are that type of thrower, like, say, you know, the Brady, the breeze, the Mac Jones, where, you know, you're going to be under center and in the pocket. You have to find a way to make those special throws to be special as a quarterback. And I think in my opinion, part of the outstanding opinion on Jones, and we just don't know. We don't know how is he going to evolve physically? Is his arm going to get stronger? Is he going to be able to make those type of throws when it counts? And we don't have a whole lot of examples right now. But I agree with you when that he his arm strength looks fine when he has time to gather himself a little bit and definitely step into things when he doesn't sometimes it gets a little bit iffy, but is he going to develop that part of his arsenal to move into an elite status where now I think his ceiling is probably from what we've seen, good, good, solid starting quarterback in this league. I'm just curious what you think about that. There's a lot to unpack based on what you just said. Let's start with the idea of having to be a second reaction improvisational player. Because people flippantly now throw that out as if you can not play quarterback in the NFL if you can't run around. And I think that that's too easy to say. You have to look at the process of playing the position. You know, it's very easy to look at Tom Brady and push him aside and say, oh, he's just the greatest of all time. But what's the process that got to that point? How come Tom Brady at whatever age is, 44, 45, I lose track now. I lose track of a lot of things now, Greg, but, you know, how can he still do what he's doing without any meaningful second reaction improvisational ability? So there's a process that gets you to that point. That's what has to be discussed. And where that process starts is a full understanding of your offense and a complete understanding of defenses generally and the specific defenses that you're going to play against because the Brady's the breezes and I know I'm speaking about Hall of Famers, but it's the process. Those guys win 99% of the time before the ball is snapped. They know where they're going with the ball. They're not surprised. They're not getting a free rusher that all of a sudden, wow, where did he come from? You know, so I think Mac Jones ultimately is that kind of quarterback. Is he a non athlete? No. Is he going to make a career out of running around? No. You know, we saw this past week against the jets where he didn't make a few plays where he left the pocket. Can he do that on occasion? Sure..

"But it could contribute toward it at greg laura. You're also the reason. I i did the show by you. Twenty years ago for pbs. Because you're the antithesis of television evangelist. You a motorcycle writings. Surfboard loving beach. Bomb and i believe the high school which you converted was corona. Del mar. high school. My right about that taxi harbor high harbor high. You were harboring more to okay and so that was newport beach down and in southern california. Where paul revere. And the raiders and all those people the height the beach culture and i was listening to them yesterday on my ipod. That's funny they were already golden oldies when you were a kid. That's pretty funny. So so you're the antithesis. The in followed by the way i want people to understand wife has not been easy for you. You've had tragedy in your life. Do you want to tell people about that. Well sure. I mean. After all that i went through with my mom and that i wrote a book called las boy. My autobiography and we made a film as well. Adt has been very well received in. So i can. It felt like okay. It's time to tell my story to give hope to those who have suffered out there to tell them that regardless of how they were raised or what kind of family being had that god can bring good out of bad and and i worked on this project and one of the people that worked on it very closely with me was my son christopher. Who is a graphic designer and very talented and in two thousand and eight on july twenty four at christopher was killed in an automobile accident and looking back on my life all the pain and suffering. That was there. My upbringing was nothing compared to the pain of losing my son and he was the truth. And i've tried to be very honest about this. I still struggle with it to this day. I know god is good. I know god loves me. I know my son is with the lord. I know that i'll see him again. But it's hard wrestle with it you wrestle with the wise and what. I've come to what i keep coming back to is. I don't know the answer to the why question it comes back to the what in the hoop and the what is what am i supposed to do. And i feel what i need to do is is i need to glorify god with my life and say in the midst of my suffering. God has been there with me. Look here's the bottom line. If god didn't come through for me during this time i would have given up preaching. Trust me when i tell you that but he did and has come through and does come through from. He gives me the strength to get through each day. So that the what. And the who of course is the lord himself and now i have a ministry to other people who've lost loved ones especially children. I never asked for it honestly. I didn't want it but now that it's happened to me. I have an understanding of it. And i'm not saying i understand what everyone's going through but i find people come to me a lot and asked me for help and and i'm wanting to help them because i want to say because when it happens to you it seems like your world is ended in being preacher.

"Special hour for me because my guess doesn't even know this. I don't think greg. Laurie knows this. But twenty years ago this month. I made my first television special ever about greg. Laurie and the harvest crusade. Until that time i'd only done studio work for casey in los angeles said why don't you go out and make a movie a thirty minute program about greg. Laurie's harvest. who say they thought. It was kind of weird. Tens of thousands of people were shown up angel stadium so i took a camera crew down there greg. Laurie and you were my first subject for my first ever television documentary. No i remember that and that was fantastic. It was a great show. How are you. i'm grading you look the same. Oh no i don't have white hair. You look the same. My hair is white if we went back and looked at the nineteen ninety-two show. I have brown hair now. One of the advantages of being bald as you just look the same year. So it's like you age ahead of everyone but then you go into freeze frame. Everyone else catches up. Yeah greg you've been making bald jokes for two decades known you have you got a list of them in. Your office are probably somewhere greg lloyd. Let's walk through the the history of greg. Laurie and harvest and that starts with the history of greg. Laurie course when. I made that movie about you. Ten at the time but give people the greg. Laurie story well. I'm probably the least likely guy you would ever expect to be an evangelist and then again. Maybe i'm the most likely guy let me explain. I wasn't raised in a christian home. My mom was married and divorced seven times she was like this marilyn monroe lookalike and so i was raised in this crazy lifestyle with her. She was a raging alcoholic. And so i had to grow fast too. And i had to learn to fend for myself. I never really was taken to church. I never heard about jesus. But i always believed there was a god and you know i always. I don't know why exactly always believed that. Jesus was there somewhere. I'd seen all of his movies. But i never really knew that much about him and i never really knew that i know him. Well at the ripe old age of seventeen. I'm in high school. I already feel like. I'm because of the life i've had to live not only fending for myself but in many ways taking care of my mom growing up fast asking the big questions of life. Why am i here. What is the meaning of my life. What's going to happen after i die. I hear a presentation of the gospel. Almost by accident on the frontline of my high school campus. There's a group of these christians that i thought were all nuts. Who would meet up there for bible studies and i sat down close enough to sort of eavesdrop on their conversation. No-one invited me that they're meeting. And a guy got up and spoke and for the first time. I heard the gospel message of who jesus is presented in an understandable way. He gave an opportunity for people to believe i..

"Not to get saved already was a christian. I just wanted a closer look at this guy so now fast forward many years. A nineteen eighty-five. Billy comes to california to angel stadium to do one of his crusades. And so i was the pastor. And i was asked to participate in the event and they said we want you to do a prayer on the stage before mr graham speaks. I said okay. I was very nervous very excited. So i'm sitting on the stage and cliff barrows says to me. I'll listen when when i when that person has done singing. You go right up there and you lead the prison. Yes sir. i'll do it and so the person finished. I was just in awe of everything sitting on this date. A billy graham crusade. And i miss my cue and cliff yells over get up there and i walked up and i was so nervous praying in front of billy graham because i that he's listening to me right now and so but then when i got to know him and that happened through my friendship with the son franklin and i know and very well and the whole family and they're just such a great family they really are but as i got to know him personally and i began my crusade ministry. Actually ninety nine hundred ninety. Billy was in the last decade of his ministry and he became aware of what i was doing and he asked. If i would help him with his sermons specifically in the area of ilustrovana wins. He wanted current illustrations. So i would come through newspapers magazines. And and i would take his notes and his font size was like twenty four. I think there's like eight words on the page. You need flip the page. And so i would write my illustrations in and then the secretary. Stephanie would type them. And then i would go to billy's hotel room and sort of rehearse the lines almost like how you would preach them and billy toward the end of his life was struggling with parkinson's disease as you may recall and so his movements drew a bit slow but as it turns out he was misdiagnosed and the medication was affecting them so he moved very slowly. But i'll tell you what i would sit there in his hotel room going over these oldest and he would just sit there looking at me and if he liked. Juanita callers secretary stephanie. Type this into the message. But then that night. When he walked into the pulpit. That's like forty. Years fell off and does that power and energy came through is he would preach the gospel and known are despite the fact that it was with them and many occasions i was always nervous around him because he was still billy graham. You know and you couldn't get over that one time. I was at a board meeting and after we were done. I said mr graham and he'd say just come and billing. And i'd say okay mr graham. I was never comfortable calling. And billy did occasionally do that but i said if you need help with your upcoming crusade messages. Call me and i'll help..

"So thanks for joining me for this podcast but we have a guest speaker and this is young man. I've known since he was just a wee little boy and his name is will. Graham now will is a son of franklin. And jean graham and he is the grandson of billy graham and will also travels around the world like his dad and his grandfather in preaches. The gospel he also was the director of the billy. Graham training center at the cove in asheville north carolina. Great place to go and study the but got us really put his hand on will and it's been so exciting to see how the lord has just got him ready for the work he's called them to do and before bill will comes out and speaks tonight. I thought it introduced them. Let's walk them. We'll we'll come on out. have you now will. A lot of people have been wondering about how your grandfather is doing in the news that your father has asked that people being prayer for billy so what is his status. How is this health right now. My grandfather back in november seventh. Turn ninety five and he's actually been in the best way to describe it. He's just old and His his own his birthday his health started to turn for the worst. There's nothing wrong with them is just old. And so there's nothing medically wrong but just old age and his life is starting to turn but grandfather's always said you know one day. You're going to hear that. Billy graham is dead and he said this is what my grandfather said. He's at one day. You're going to hear that. Billy graham is dead. He said but don't believe it for on that day. I'll be more lives than any other time in my life. He's been his whole life. Travelling the world preteen and we just had this great outreach in the united states and it was on the fox news channel and also in thousands of homes around the country called my hope america and he probably reached as many people as he's reaching a long time in one night using media didn't he did and this is. This is all because what god's been doing and you know I mean how. How in the world would fox news ever put something like this on on their television. I mean you kind of wonder how in the world well this is. This is this the top god that we serve because god introduced my grandfather to rupert murdoch and nineteen fifty nine in melbourne australia. When rupert was a nobody he's just owner of the jocks news sky news and europe and the uk. And and he's he's. He's an ozzy from melbourne over. His father's business. Who had just died and father went there nine. Nineteen fifty-nine nine the head of businessman's lunch and roundtable and my grandfather was sitting beside him. And that's how rupert murdoch and billy graham so all these years and now river yeah we want to put this on our programming and we said thank you so much and your dad told me franklin. Your dad told me that fifty five thousand people made a profession that they know about one night from that broadcast going out to the fifty five thousand people. That's great so we'll tell us. Tell us about yourself now. How long have you been married. I've been married. We celebrate fifteen years this year. Well congratulations you. Have three children children now. Did you always feel just because you know you're the grandson a billion the son of franklin you're to end up as a preacher or did you gonna fight that or what. No i never fall it but my there was no pressure. A lot of people wonder if there's always pressure to be a preacher and evangelist and my dad did very good at protecting us from that. He didn't because he got that pressure and he didn't want his own children. Have that pressure. So dad protected us for example when i was starting to get into college. He'll say hey we want we'll come and speak or will. I wasn't really speaking at the time. But you know we'll we won't will and my dad said you can't ask him unless you asked me i and so then after our time dad said no will you can make up his own mind on that stuff but dad always protected us grateful for that. I mean we grew up normal. I mean we grew up on a farm in north carolina. Pig cows horses motorcycle. And that's about your father. What about not getting. I couldn't miss that. Opportunity had to jump in there. So you did. I've been to your house and you grew up in a country environment as a normal life. But god put his hand on the and now you're traveling around the world and where some of the places you've been where some of the places you're going. Yeah this we've been very blessed and we only go where we get invitations. We don't we don't spend the globe and say oh lou hawaii. This looks good this year. And we go where we're invited and so this past year we ran I was invited to india. It's been there many times. I've been there many times. This is the first time. I was denied. Entry into india. Why is that and so. I'd missed up last time with some. I didn't get in trouble with the law. That sense but i went to a restricted area. Oh you have to go present your passport to a certain individuals. I gave my passport to an individual. Go get registered. I thought it was done. They didn't do it. And so and i didn't know is ignorance on my part and so when i left the country they said well we'll didn't follow our procedures. He can't come back in. It's all cleared up now. Yeah but supposed to go to india. Didn't quite make. It went to africa this year to kenya. Preached was in australia earlier this year. Be going back australia this coming year. Just got back from thailand and japan and japan. God is really doing something unique in japan right now. Some things that most christian pastors there and japan have never seen before. And we're seeing a god really begin to do something the mighty hand which has never happened before so there is a half. The japanese are christians less than half of one percent. So a mega church would be fifty people. I mean there's there's twelve megachurches here but guys some great things and we're looking forward. What guys can continue tonight. What are you going to talk to us about. I'm gonna talking about a little bit about the christmas story and specially it's that time of the year. I'm sorry to believes less than two weeks away. Oh so this is the only time i get the preach christmas so i'm gonna be talking about herod tonight and the wiseman that's gonna be. Thanks for being here well. Let's think we'll be here cement.

"I show some of his vulnerabilities. And you'll only love and appreciate a more after you've read it. Because he was the same guy in private that he was in public there. Were not to billy. Graham's he was the real deal. And that's why i decided to write a book about billy graham because people need to know about this man who was called by god to be the greatest evangelist in history. Well billy passed away in two thousand eighteen The the news wasn't unexpected given his age but nevertheless it was news. We all felt it hurt to hear that. Do you remember where you were when you heard that bill gun home. Yes i was actually in israel And i was on a a little tour with some fellow pastors in fact Sissy graham lynch. The granddaughter of billy was with us on that trip And she heard the news differently than everyone else. We all lost a hero. Someone we looked up to. She lost her grandfather and she is very close to him and we were all very sad now. Billy was ninety nine years old so he lived a very long life but yet you know it was the end of an era and so there was great sadness and losing him. Because i feel like we need another billy graham right now in our world you know a man who's pastored president regardless of what side of the political aisle. They're on a man who can speak to us during cultural moments. I mean billy was there after nine eleven speaking to the nation really being a chaplain to america and he played such a valuable role and of course the great evangelist But so yeah. I remember the day very distinctly and then i attended his memorial service. That was held a bit later. A back at the billy graham library in charlotte north carolina. They put a ten top contribute to the fact that he started his ministry in a tent. It turned out that that was one of the coldest days ever in north carolina and the wind whipped through that tent. The president came He had the presidential limo called the beast. Eileen right there he didn't get up and say a word he was. Just they're paying tribute to billy graham. The vice president was there many other people you've all heard of. And just about every pastor. I've ever met fact as i walked around the diversity of people that were there people from every denomination background. Every kind of theological background i thought. Wow this is what heavens gonna look like if we like it or not and you know we're we're gonna be there because we believed in jesus and we believed he died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead but these are people that would not normally hang around each other but even in his service it was a reminder of the bridges he built a so many people in the christian world and so many came from around the world to pay tribute to the great evangelist and in fact when his library was dedicated. A president. jimmy. Carter a president. George h w bush were there in in person as was president clinton so that alone shows you how he reached people on both sides of the aisle and he was loved and appreciated by these presidents that valued his counsel because billy kept confidential and He would really reveal something about a president. I have some lots of questions. What was it like when you were with this person. What did they say. He kept confidential. He did tell me one amazing story. Though about president. John f kennedy. I asked him if he had any regrets in life. And he said yes i do. And he told me the story of how he was at the Prayer breakfast there in washington. Dc and the president will always be in attendance and president. Kennedy was there. Billy spoke after it was over with the president..

"What day life must be like for a a major a-list movie star. You know they. They just can't go to the grocery store or walk through the mall. You know it would turn into a crowd control problem billy. Graham was as recognizable as any movie star and and more well-respected. Could he do everyday things could. Could he drive through mcdonald's well he would he would and he really would be on an about. He didn't have security team around him. He was just. Billy maybe have one friend with him but you know. He was recognized wherever he went. I mean this profile could have been a mount rushmore. Such a familiar face chiseled. You know incredible. And so i was with him once at the red lobster having lunch and and so he had a ball cap on. I guess thinking that would disguise him and the funny thing is there was an atheist convention going on at the same time as billy was holding this crusade in this town and there were people coming up to him that were attending an atheist convention because they have the little tag still to be in the convention but they were thrilled to meet billion. He was so gracious to every one of them well anyway so he had this hat and he lost it and then he said to me greg. Could you get me another hat. I said absolutely so. I went down to the local mall. Like i was on a mission from god. I'm getting a hat for billy. Graham now billy basically were ball caps and so i think i found the started thinking was called lids. Maybe but it was. I walked in. It was oh my goodness to any hats. It was so many institute. And then i didn't take the time to find his hat size. And so i i looked and looked i even pray. God helped me. Find the right hat for billy graham. My goodness and i finally chose one. I don't remember what size it was looked like and i went back though telling gave it to me. Thank me and war then. The next day. I opened the paper. And there's a photograph of billy wearing the hat. I said i got him that hat. That's i got him then. I think he misplaced that shortly afterwards. Nikki lost hats quite frequently. And i don't really know that much good because people seem to recognize him no matter what you mentioned in the book that this is an evangelist view of the life of the greatest evangelist history now and there are great takeaways for all of us in learning about village life. What are a couple of takeaways for you as an vangelis. Yeah well. I observe billy very carefully you know. When he was on the platform i would be sitting up there. And i can watch him and i watched him as he gave the invitation and thousands of people would come forward to accept christ and i asked him after billy. What are you personally experiencing physically when you give an invitation and is response was i feel like power is going out to me. And i understand that. Because i've stood on stages in stadiums and arenas and seen many people come forward in urine a definite time of spiritual warfare of the double really attacks. Those who were called to present the gospel. And i think one of billy's secrets what's he didn't take himself too seriously..

"Turning to god. They start crying out. Someone asked me this question the other day. What about the person that has everything. And i think this comes to maybe a way. We present the gospel. That's not completely accurate and by the same means. Sometimes we'll sort of present. The gospel has my life was messed up. And i was empty and lonely and jesus came into my life and now i've found purpose in joint. That's all true. And that's good and it's fine to say those things but don't only say those things because this person asks the question. Well what about the person who says. Actually i'm pretty happy and i don't feel this emptiness. Maybe you had and you know. I have a amazing home and i have a great career and have a perfect family. And everything's going my way. Oh well what do you see to that person about their need for. Jesus christ everything is going their way in life. Yeah the problem is that person's not gonna live forever and after this life there's something else. Death leads to a destination and the bible says we are made for eternity. And so you may be doing good right here but once you're gone what's going to happen then see. The bible gives the answers greg to the three basic questions. Who am i. Why am i here. What's going to happen to me. When i die we have no way of knowing this selves. We have to have someone tell us this and we have someone that told us this. That is god and people think. I'm self sufficient. I'm happy this and that well. First of all people aren't their whole life. Happy everybody has. Tragedy has a problem sooner or later. So what i tell people. Just be there for your friend or relative. Maybe your parents have got everything going for him. Just wait because when a tragedy strikes they will turn to the person that has the answers because they'll know they don't address those questions. Why am i here. What were the three cousins weiming here. Mike y'all who am i. Who are you jon. Stew on your greg. Laurie we've settled that. We got that nailed. We've got that one right. Yeah okay we've been made in the image of god genesis one twenty six in one twenty seven. We're not a mistake of evolution. We're not here by blind chance we've been made. Let me stop you. First tenant christian believe in evolution and the bible simultaneously or they can. They shouldn't because the bible doesn't teach at can they or should they probably should ask the question that way. You're right about that. Should they know they should not yes they can and do but they should not very thank you for that correction. You're welcome. well he's right yeah. Of course they can. But i've heard some young unbelievable say i believe in evolution but i believe in the bible and what that says to me. Is you don't really. You probably don't know much about either. Say that because you wouldn't say that if you knew whatever loose next teachers are you evolved from an eight or a lower life form or do you believe what the scripture says about the creation of man yeah evolution creation two horses riding in the opposite direction. You can't write them both. Got to ride one or the other so coming back to your made in the image of the image and likeness of god. You're different from the animal kingdom made for your your created. The highlight of god's creation was humanity on day five. He made the birds and the fish on day six. The land animals sixty eight human beings the crowd of his creation the creation that's made in the image likeness of god. We can give love. We can receive love. We have the ability to communicate that separates humans from the animal kingdom. So first of all we have an identity. Yeah why am i here. Who am a purpose. okay. the purple. Why are we here now. The purposes we can have a relationship with god to know him again to find out who we are and let others know what you do greg harvest crusade to tell people and all of us do that sharing the gospel of jesus christ because we do have an identity we do have a purpose and our purposes to to live for god in this life. And you know you really won't find your purpose until you do live for god. All of us probably at one time other tried to find some purpose and things and something that never made it never satisfied but once you let god you know in your life and let the lord jesus in your life then you have a purpose for living and what happens after. I die then the destiny. Yeah this life again is not all that there is after death comes.

"greg" Discussed on Greg Laurie Podcast

"Way in comes on our own level anyway. He started to speak to me. And i realized that was god speaking again. I said all right. God i'm gonna give you a chance now. You gotta remember it to me. Smoking grass was not just a pastime. It was my life. I had actually formed my life around. It was everything to me. There was nothing more important to me than my drugs. I love them. They were like the rich man had his money. I had my drug. That was my thing and for me to give up. Drugs was a pretty big deal. And i said all right god if you're real if you really exist and i've seen all these christians with their happy faces. Few real changed my life. I'm gonna give you a chance. And i took it ripped it up. Threw it down and said all right. So i went back to school. The christians came up to me and just welcoming in the fellowship. And all god bless you brother greg. I didn't like can come brother. Greg but i put up with it. Praise the lord all those words. I had a hard time. Praise the lord you know and so they said hey man you know you've got gotta really watch out. You're going to get tempted by the devil tempted by the devil. You believe in a devil all yelm. Satan's real you gotta watch out for him. He's really subtle. He's gonna come to you and give you all the things that you want just resistant. I thought all mind. And i went to my next class and this girl that was in the class a really attractive girl who i had been wanting to meet for a year but i was just totally afraid to talk to a really good-looking girl. Non-christian girl came up to me and said. Hey what's your name. I said greg. Hey i've never met you before you know i kinda like you. Oh wow she goes. Why don't you come up to the mountains with me for the weekend. And i went. It's it's the devil and it was. It was and i realize satan was tempting me and i said no and i was saying to myself. What are you doing. I said no no i believe in god now and then she just. Oh wow you know and got away from me the same way. I reacted to christians a few days before and so after classes over was thinking that over. And i walked up my old buddy gregg. You want to smoke a little aqua poco gold right now. I'm getting tempted to can. And that was really a temptation for me. Because i really wanted to do it. And i started to realize this whole thing and it was starting to make sense. And i was seeing the whole spiritual around. That's when i started to enjoy resisting temptation. I said you know all right. I figured something's going on you know someone's trying to rip me off. There must be something to this thunderstorms likely because things were happening. It wasn't something i had to make up. It was really existing. So i started reading the bible and feeling i don't like to compare god the drugs and i don't like it when people say jesus better than getting loan it because i don't think you can compare the creator of the universe to some stupid drug but when i would read his word in pray i had such a presence of peace never known before that i never got from anything and i just said. Wow this is great. What deal you know. And i became very excited about it aster greg. Laurie will have the second half of this message. From nineteen seventy seven in. Just a moment. We send pastor great studies out via the radio. Email satellite and even are harvested home online services. And it's encouraging when we hear that these messages are impacting lives. After greg i have been a true believer for six decades have been receiving daily devotions for a couple of months. Now they are my favorite devotional. And i look forward to getting them every day. In addition about one month ago. I started tune into your life sermons on harvest at home. You inspire me. And i get all your jokes. Thank you for your ministry and to bring people to relationship with god. I'm happy to partner with you. In your mission. I pray god continues to bless you exceedingly abundantly more than you could ask or think it's a privilege to bring these studies your way and we're thankful for our harvest partners. Who make them possible. Would you partner with us. You could make a donation at harvest dot org. And you'll find pasture greg's harvest at home services at the same web address harvest dot org. We'll today a unique message from pastor. Greg we're listening to a sermon preached when he was just twenty four years old and he spoke of his journey to christ. Let's continue with this presentation now. One of the most requested programs of the past year got back to school. And i had a hard time relating to the christian because they were the questions on this campus especially they love the lord and they didn't care if anyone knew it and they would walk down the middle of the campus like i said singing out loud at the top of their vocal chords. Praise the lord. You know and and i couldn't relate to that and i said well i'm going to kind of be a loner christian i'll believe in god but i won't hang out with them but then when they want him said come onto christian meeting. I said all right so they were at lunch time. We went into a room. i sat down. Everyone was looking to behave and that guy used to get loaded. He's a christian now. Wow you know there's just sitting there and this guy. He was kind of a strange brother. He was very fervent. He preached like old fashioned preacher. And jesus said you know he storming around the room. And i'd never seen anybody talk like this before. You know throwing their arms around and then god the fluctuations and. I didn't know why person would want to speak so weird you know. I still really don't know why people talk like that. And so i got out of the class and this guy comes up and he goes brother. Greg i wanna give you a bible and he gave me the bible with popsicle sticks glued together to make a cross on it. You know and i thought that was kinda knew. Wow thanks a lot you know. Can i pay for no. No you just take this and read it man. It's god's awareness that thank you of the room and thought oh man. I can't carry a bible around. Don't they make little ones. You can hide your pockets or something. And so i had this jacket with big pockets on it and i said well just stuff the bible down the pocket pull the flap over and no one will know so i stuck it down in there and i walked along and i hadn't seen my friends for like a week. My old lady buddies. You know so i said hey i'll go over and visit them so i walked over and looked around and open the bushes up stuff. The bible and hid in the bushes walked in pay man. You guys done this. Said hey greg man all know where and the lord you know with that feeling came back and i started feeling what was conviction to witness. I wasn't going to witness. Didn't wanna do that so i sat down greg. We haven't seen you for a week. Where have you been. I haven't been anywhere. And i just kept evading the subject. They kept cross examining me. Hey wanted to go smoke a joint. No no. i don't wanna do that. Where have you been man. What's happening to your different all. Nothing and no way. Was i going to witness. Suddenly the front door comes bursting open and it.
