A New Indiana Jones Film Is on the Way. Don't Rush to Buy a Ticket
"Indiana Jones movie. It's coming out Indiana Jones 5 and what have they done yet again? What have they done yet again? They are working to introduce brand new character for the series for the franchise because Harrison Ford's getting a little old 80 years old, by the way. I think it was hurt during a lot of the filming and Kathleen Kennedy, the same mastermind that gave you the incredible Disney Star Wars, a kids. If you like Disney Star Wars, you'll love. You'll absolutely love Disney, Indiana Jones, because what we're going to do is we're going to replace Indiana with a sassy and crassy female female goddaughter who she's going to get the hat. She's going to get the whip at the very end of it all. And so when I look at stuff like this, it's amazing to me because it's like, this is exactly what you did with Luke Skywalker. You essentially replaced him with this girl that no one's ever heard of. Who popped up and suddenly, oh, we all have to love her. We all have to do your creatively bankrupt. And Kathleen Kennedy is the same person who's involved in all of this. You find some institution or franchise that everybody loves. You come in and you say, by the way, it's not enough. It's not enough that we, you know, you're going to say like, oh, well, Americans, you know, the masculine patriarchy would never allow. Never, ever allow. For a female explorer, a strong female explorer character, oh, wait, you know, we have the entire law across franchise. No, it's not enough. Why? Because Indiana Jones must be literally be a woman. This is what you must accept America.

Stephanie Welcomes DNC Chair Jaime Harrison
"Now the fine American who is the head of the Democratic National Committee chairman of Jamie Harrison, good morning, chairman. Good morning, Stephanie. Thank you for having me. I don't know what else to say about a party that the head of their party that is mocking a stroke victim. I don't know what to say anymore about just the level of these candidates and these spokespeople for the Republican Party. Well, listen, you know, ronna has so many challenges. You know, she's never met truth. I don't think it's ever escaped her lips. She testified in front of the January 6th committee to see that her committee that she chairs was intimately involved in terms of trying to overturn our election. That's say it. There is no bottom for the Republican Party, and she embodies it. And so, you know, as we say in the south, bless her heart. The worst swipe you can have in the south.
How Do We Swat Down Donald Trump's Lies?
"Speaking of having to S.W.A.T. down wise, partisan Democrats were not the ones who referred Trump to the Justice Department for taking documents from The White House the national archives said in the statement. They said in no time and under no circumstances were narrow officials pressured or influenced by committee Democrats or anyone else. This is what this is a I mean, the stuff that Trump puts out on is whatever it is, right? Truth sent whatever. I actually have forgotten the name of it. What's the actual name? I mean, it's just a steady stream of lies, right? Yes, it is. And it's the danger of it is that people are believing his lies and acting on his lies. So he may be motivating really dangerous conduct as a result of these lies. It's shameful and yet the First Amendment allows it to happen and we can't shut it down. So there you go, we're going to have this happening and I think it's made me one of the most crucial issues facing our country now is how do we get truth to be something that matters? How do we get people to learn how to evaluate what is true and what isn't, Illinois, my state, has just adopted a course basically teaching students how to evaluate what they're reading, and how to determine if something is reliable or not. That's, you know, we shouldn't be in a situation where that's true. But it's necessary now, isn't it?
Jill Wine-Banks Weighs In on the Kash Patel Testimony
"There's so much going on, but I want to get your take Andrew weissman tweeted, what does it mean DoJ is compelling cash Patel to testify? It means DoJ is conferring immunity on him, which means he can't take the 5th, but his testimony and leads can not be used against him. So DoJ has determined it can not make a criminal case against him, but wants his testimony, Lawrence tribe said, once DoJ grants cash Patel immunity, his Fifth Amendment rights against compelled self incrimination will evaporate, he will then be forced to tell the truth about Trump's role in the Mar-a-Lago crimes against America's national security, the jig will be up. I was a little confused by those two different tweets. Can you give us your take on the cash Patel testimony? Okay, so I'm not sure what you saw as inconsistent, there is two kinds of immunity and one is for use immunity, which means that you can be forced to test, testify, but that can not be used against you. And in fact, it's a harder burden than just that you can't use it. The prosecution would have to prove that nothing in the trial against you came from the fruit of that testimony. Okay. So that it's a pretty hard burden to meet to say, I never discovered a lead from that. The other is transactional immunity, which means that if you testify about transaction a, the disruption of January 6th confirmation of the vote, you can never be prosecuted for anything to do with that. Even if it's with evidence outside of that. So assuming that he gets used immunity, it means that he still could be prosecuted. But he just can't be prosecuted using his own words. Against him. for anything they can show, we knew this before you testified. Here's the evidence we had. We got it from the grand jury on a date that precedes your testimony. Et cetera.

Brad also has a deep experience developing concepts, including co authoring three patents in search, geotagging, and personalization. Brad Harrison was scout ventures is up next on veteran on the move. Welcome to veteran on the move. If you're a veteran in transition, an entrepreneur wannabe, or someone still stuck in that JOB trying to escape. This podcast is dedicated to your success. And now, your host, Joe crane. Have you tried navy federal's car by an experience? I highly recommend it. You won't have a better car buying experience. Check them out at navy federal dot org slash carbine. All right, we're talking with army veteran Brad Harrison with scout ventures, Brad, you've done some amazing things in product development and building companies and patents and it's a lot of really cool stuff. Looking forward to that before we get into all of that, take us back, tell us what you did in the army. Yeah, so, you know, I grew up with my grandfather who was a navy jet watching John Wayne toro toro every Sunday. So, you know, when I started to think about college, I was from New York, so I'd been up to West Point as a kid and kind of saw the cadets and kind of fell in love with it. And so wound up going to West Point, which was great because, you know, it was the structure that I needed. The education that I needed and I happened to be strong physically and militarily. So allowed me to kind of thrive there. And why you're today, you get to bang out things like airborne school and some deployments. So that was pretty fun. And then I commissioned as an infantry officer went to ranger school. For any of the rangers out there listening, I was in class three 95, which was the last four phase ranger school, but it was also the class where for my classmates died in the swamps. So my army career started off with this really stark reminder of how dangerous it was. What we were doing, you know, I think we sometimes forget about that when I was when I was a yearling at West Point, you know, we were on a training mission and two of the bradleys crashed at night, and a whole bunch of people got injured. So I think sometimes people forget, I know, you know, you were a helicopter pilot, right? You know, there's a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean, I know three guys that died in flight school. What was going through? So I think that really changed. This seriousness, which I looked at every one of my deployments in terms of my priority was really bringing all of my soldiers home. And I think that that experience and ranger school really hammered that in, what an awful experience and then I wound up getting out in 99. So I missed the last 20 years and transitioned through grad school at MIT Sloan, which kind of set me down the path I'm on now. Yeah. So what was your transition like coming out of the army? Were you prepared for that? Was it smooth sailing? Well, I would imagine that for any transitioning vet that's listening, the two pages of a thousand URLs that they handed me when I walked out the door really did not provide any resources. The SBA and their patriot express loans, you know, I've never been able to access any of that stuff. The one benefit I was able to access that was really amazing was because I came out and I was 30% disabled when I originally transitioned I qualified for vocational rehab. Which helped cover the cost of graduate school. So that became the path that I went down because there was some funding from the VA. And I really thought that it would allow me to transition into a role that valued my experience. I found when I was trying to transition directly out of the army into these roles. Nobody actually knew how to translate my experience into what I was applying for. And one of the things when we mentor veterans at scout is we really spend a lot of time talking to them about developing their own narrative, telling their own story, thinking about how to craft that story into the sales or biz dev roll or whatever they're trying to do. And then I would say for all transitioning veterans, don't get discouraged, just keep banging away and keep trying to work the veteran network because I think that's a pretty strong network for us. Absolutely. Great advice. Now when you first were transitioning out and you were starting to go to school, where did this entrepreneurship thing come from? Was that what your intent was when you get out of the army? Yeah, you know, so I grew up my dad was an entrepreneur and from as long as I can remember any time I asked for something, he was like, all right, if you want something, you better get to work. So by that time I was 16, I had a painting company, a landscape and company, and I was running the local little league. Hey man, a $140 on a Saturday. Now up a couple of third, fourth and 5th graders. I'm in. But you know, I

"harrison" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"If no one's saying anything about you, then you're doing the Christian life wrong. You know, it's amazing to hear you say this stuff because as I said, I say a lot of this in my book, almost exactly what you just said. I've seen exactly what you just said this lie that prudence is the greatest virtue be safe. Keep your nose clean. Yes. It's a lie from the pit of hell. God calls you to a fight. He calls you to a battle and we're warring obviously against satanic dark powers, but he calls us to that. And this idea that I'm going to play it safe, and I'm just going to avoid sin. Your goal is not to avoid sin. Your goal is to serve God. And when you serve God, you tend to avoid sin, but the point is, if all you're about is avoiding center of what you're making mistakes, you're completely missing it. And you're quite right, you know, when you say that we're getting this message, it's been in the church for years, and a lot of people think that's what it means to be a Christian, is just not to screw up or whatever, and you think, wow, that is a really negative definition of what it is to live out your faith. And we talk about, you know, in the line the witch and the wardrobe in the Narnia chronicles about Aslan is this powerful Lion and they say, is he tame? And it's like, no, he's not tame. He's wild. He's scary. He's good. He's good, but he's not tame. We need to get that memo. And your book, of course, called a daring faith in a cowardly world. You are trying to help Christians in America understand that we got a lot of this stuff wrong. It's way better. It's way, way better than whatever we thought it was supposed to be. Yeah, let's talk briefly about the apostle Paul, who in philippians, he says, I am striving forward for the crown of righteousness for the better resurrection. Not that I've yet attained it. What does that mean? Well, we haven't hebrews where the writer of Hebrew says, we have all these people who are tortured to death. And they didn't take release. They didn't relent their faith. Why? They wanted a better resurrection. And then Paul goes on to say, there are different levels of stars in the heavens. With different amounts of glory, so it will be with our resurrection. Some resurrection better than others. Well, that's a truth we don't hear. And then Paul had said, not that I've yet attained it. Then in second Timothy chapter four, he's about to be put to death. He's giving his last words to Timothy, and he says, I have achieved The Crown of righteousness. And not just me, but all those who love his appearing. So Paul and now at the end of his life, realizes now he knows he's gotten it. Each of us need to live our life that way. Fight the fight the good fight run the race to win, live life, give all because great is your reward in heaven. Ladies and gentlemen, are you listening to this? The book is a daring faith in a cowardly world, Ken Harrison. Thank you. Thanks, man. You say it easy just to catch your face like playing music but you never seem. With early morning yesterday books I'm talking to Ken Harrison, the book is a daring faith and a cowardly world. You know, Ken, what I talk about mostly in my book, which you relate to is the fact that the silence of the church, that people going along with what you're saying about, they want to be safe and kind of don't get in trouble, and so they're being silent when satanic evil is being poured out across our culture, lives are being destroyed. Young women's lives are being destroyed. Young men's lives are being destroyed. And the church of silence, I don't want to get too political, and I want to talk about that. I don't want to talk about cultural Marxism infiltrating the culture and many churches and BLM and critical race theory there. They say, well, I don't want to go there. I don't want to talk about this. I want to get political. And I think you've got to be kidding. These are issues of truth and God will judge you for your silence and the German church because of its silence for all the same reasons that you and I are talking about and that we talk about in these books. For the same reasons, they were silent. They said, we're just going to want to be nice. You just want to preach the gospel, whatever the heck that meant, and the enemy was able to triumph because of their silence. We are now living in a day which the parallels are couldn't be more dramatic and God is trying to get this message, which Bond hoffer was trying to speak to the church. He's trying to speak it to the church right now. But you must see this in your life that there are a lot of Christian leaders that they don't want to go there. They say, well, you know, we're not in it to win it. Let's be, let's just be nice and let's just preach our little gospel. I got to tell you that that's a message out of the pit of hell. These are a lot of good people, nonetheless, misleading millions with that message. Amen, I could go off on this forever. What I'll say is I'll go back to Dante's great divine comedy, right? You remember that in the divine comedy, he talks about the priests that would not take a stand. And so heaven didn't want them in neither did hell. And so the ones that wouldn't stand for anything actually got the worst punishment of ever. You had the Christians, the non Christians, and then the ones that were milquetoast and had no courage and they got the worst punishment of all. You talk about the German church during Bond hoffer, but the German church had been the liberal leading church in the 1800s that destroyed America, all of our pastors would go in 1800 to seminary in Germany, and then they came back to Harvard and destroyed all of our good organizations. So it didn't happen in a vacuum. The people of Germany in the 1930s reaped what they had sewn of a liberal theology. And so we must stand on the word of God with boldness. And I'll say this last thing, revelation 21 8 gives a list of the people who will for sure go to like a fire. And it's not a list. Go back for every listening and read revelation 21 8. The list starts with cowards. And it ends with all liars. I'm not joking. I was going to bring that verse up. Is that right? In this segment, because I saw it recently and I thought, oh my goodness, cowards. Cowards will be cast into the Lake of fire folks. Do you understand? You are called to be a hero. God will give you the strength. You'll give you everything you need. It doesn't need to come from within. God will put it in you himself. And he's probably already put it in you, but you need to know that he wants you to stand. He wants you to speak. He wants you to speak out against the madness. And if you don't, he judges you. He doesn't call us to be cowardly. I'm talking to Ken Harrison, the book is a daring faith and a cowardly world. That's like the second to last verse in the Bible that you just quoted about liars, there's a lot of lying going on, there's a lot of cowardice, folks, this is the time the church is being called to stand. And one of the ways the lord is doing it is through Ken Harrison and his new book, a daring faith and a cowardly world. Can I'm just so grateful for you for your voice and for exhorting men and women in this country and around the world to live the real life that God calls them to live not to accept any substitutes..
You're Not Translated Into Heaven the Minute You Get Saved
"Not translated into heaven the minute you get saved, you've just crossed the starting line and now you're supposed to do good works in not to earn Salvation because Jesus earned it 2000 years ago and by faith you've accepted it. So you're good. But now, because you're still here, you have an assignment. God has given you an assignment. And if you're not living into that assignment, you're missing it. What could be more sad than missing that God almighty has given you an heroic assignment to live this life to fight evil in the world to do all kinds of things and you didn't know. You didn't know. It's why you wrote your book a daring faith and cowardly world. So what else should we talk about? Let's make a controversy. We haven't said anything enough controversial enough yet, Eric. So, I mean, it wouldn't be a conversation between you and me if we didn't start, right? Okay. Some of our great dinners. We in America have taught that prudence is the greatest virtue. How do we examine who the best Christian is, right? It's the person who has the least amount of life. Don't drink, don't smoke, don't you don't pay girls who do, right? If it makes your grand, it's got to be a sin, right? That's how we've done so much of the Christian life. That's not what we see in scripture. What do we see in scriptures? God values courage and people who go after life. And so the entire Old Testament. I mean, look at the heroes. David and Abraham and Moses and all these different heroes. What do they do? They grab life with everything in them and they live for Christ and they screwed up. And

"We'll be right back. I'm talking to Ken Harrison, the new book, a daring faith in a cowardly world. Tell me, Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you.

He heads up promise keepers celebrating 25 years since the event in D.C., mind-blowing. And we're talking about Ken's new book, a daring faith in a cowardly world. So I was saying, can the things are so bad now that in a way, it's God's mercy kind of pushing people who say they believe in Jesus, pushing them to act and saying, it's not enough just to be nice, there are people's lives being destroyed. You need to be in the battle. You know, if you were alive and slavery times, would you say, well, it doesn't concern me. I just want to preach the gospel, and you'd be like, well, you're not going to talk about the abomination of slavery. You're going to be silent about that. You're not going to talk about these wicked things, but that's part of what it is to live the gospel. And I think a lot of Christians have that confusion. They act as like, well, those things don't apply to me. I just want to stick in this kind of like little theological zone, which of course is not not what Jesus calls us to do in case anybody cares what he thinks. Yeah, so the question is, why should I be bold? Why should I give everything? If Jesus died on the cross and I said a little prayer and therefore I got mine, and I'm going to go to heaven. Well, then, and we, in the church, have inadvertently given the wrong identity to people. Because what we said is, you're a bad person, Eric. But Jesus loves you anyway. So try not to be bad, but we know you're going to be, but don't worry, he'll still forgive you. No, now go have a nice day. And you go, well, what's the point? And maybe that's why there will be a 127 suicides today. And 80% of those will be middle aged men because they have no point in their life. And in fact, the real reality is Eric, you were a bad person. The day you put your faith in Christ, he made you a new creature. You became a son of the most high living God, and, according to ephesians two ten, he had a mission that he laid down at the beginning of time for you to accomplish good works prepared the foundation of the world for Eric metaxas to do. And you will be rewarded in this life and all of eternity for how well you carry that out. Salvation is by grace alone. But after Salvation, now you're now your baby, now you're born again. Now you get to grow up because the day you got saved, you got unmerited acceptance by the father, but you don't have unmerited approval by the father. Just like our kids, our kids sometimes have more of our approval than others, right? The more approval they have, the more intimacy they have with us, and the more we want to reward them with good things. That's exactly how it is with our father in heaven. Salvation is by grace, but what we do with that Salvation matters greatly and will be. This is such a huge point. And it's funny because I never had. I do make it in my book letter to the American church. This is a fundamental misunderstanding in the American church. And it was a fundamental misunderstanding in the German church in bone hoffer's day. Amen. Folks, it doesn't get bigger as a misunderstanding. There's no bigger misunderstanding. If you think how you live your life doesn't matter, it's all grace. No, no, no. Your Salvation can just say your Salvation is grace. But then you've just crossed the starting line. It's not the finish line. It's the starting line. And you now get to live in that grace and the scripture is clear, faith, without works, is dead. If you say you have faith, I'm saved. I'm saying, but you don't live it out. Maybe you're not safe because the Bible says clearly, so would have got faith without works is dead. You're supposed to live in that faith. And that is an adventure. That is the most amazing thing. And you know, Ken, it's interesting because you talk about people committing suicide. If you don't have purpose in life, if you don't understand this, life can be meaningless, and there is nothing worse, especially for a guy. I don't know, I'm speaking as a guy, but I feel like, you know, men need purpose and I mean, obviously women do too, but I see so many men that are suffering from this idea that what does it matter and why am I here? And they have not heard what you are talking about. And there's literally nothing more important because folks, this is not Ken's opinion. It's not my opinion. This is true. This is true. What we're saying, the book is a daring faith in a cowardly world. So what else do you talk about in the book or just continue please? Yeah, you know, it's funny landing on to your point. There was an intellectual whom you and I know. I won't say his name on air, but I'll fair I can tell you, but he actually told me, I hated what your book was about. I hated that you were going to talk about rewards and all this stuff. He goes, and I grabbed your book with a pen, and I went to rip it apart. And he goes, you know, Ken, by the time I finished your book, I realized you didn't say a single profounder original thing. It's all scripture. And he goes, you so changed my thought process that now, whenever I read the Bible, all I see is good works, good works, rewards, judged by your work since like, it changed everything about me. And this is a guy who has deep knowledge of the Bible and so I would tell people what you just said is exactly right, Eric. All I'm doing is taking all the verses from the Bible, putting some neat stories together with them to help to give an example. And then saying things that scripture says over and over that we've just buried post reformation church. We've been so dialed in on grace and it is grace up to Salvation. But after that, and I often say this, if Jesus gave the entire Salvation message in John three 16, which he did, if you believe you're safe, then what are all the rest of his words about? They're about being wholly. They're about becoming a disciple. I mean, it's amazing because this is simply true. This is not some interpretation. But we have lived in such a blessed time in America that it's been very, very easy to fall asleep to these things. And it's why I wrote my book. It's why you wrote your book is to say, hey folks, God didn't save you so that you could be asleep. He wants you to be awake and alive and living this life, self sacrificially for his purposes to bless other people, it is a glorious adventure to which God has called you and you do not want to miss that..
Ken Harrison and Eric Discuss Christian Confusion and Being BOLD
"My friend Ken Harrison. He heads up promise keepers celebrating 25 years since the event in D.C., mind-blowing. And we're talking about Ken's new book, a daring faith in a cowardly world. So I was saying, can the things are so bad now that in a way, it's God's mercy kind of pushing people who say they believe in Jesus, pushing them to act and saying, it's not enough just to be nice, there are people's lives being destroyed. You need to be in the battle. You know, if you were alive and slavery times, would you say, well, it doesn't concern me. I just want to preach the gospel, and you'd be like, well, you're not going to talk about the abomination of slavery. You're going to be silent about that. You're not going to talk about these wicked things, but that's part of what it is to live the gospel. And I think a lot of Christians have that confusion. They act as like, well, those things don't apply to me. I just want to stick in this kind of like little theological zone, which of course is not not what Jesus calls us to do in case anybody cares what he thinks. Yeah, so the question is, why should I be bold? Why should I give everything? If Jesus died on the cross and I said a little prayer and therefore I got mine, and I'm going to go to heaven. Well, then, and we, in the church, have inadvertently given the wrong identity to people. Because what we said is, you're a bad person, Eric. But Jesus loves you anyway. So try not to be bad, but we know you're going to be, but don't worry, he'll still forgive you. No, now go have a nice day. And you go, well, what's the point? And maybe that's why there will be a 127 suicides today. And 80% of those will be middle aged men because they have no point in their life. And in fact, the real reality is Eric, you were a bad person. The day you put your faith in Christ, he made you a new creature. You became a son of the most high living God, and, according to ephesians two ten, he had a mission that he laid down at the beginning of time for you to accomplish good works prepared the foundation of the world for Eric metaxas to do. And
Ken Harrison and Eric Discuss Living Heroically
"Think Eric about how you live your life? And you have a different perspective because you've done all this research. You've written, you're my favorite author. I read everything that you put out. Because it's all excellent, right? And you know how much people love mon Hoff and everyone tells you that. But you think about how you live your life. You think about the spine that you have, right? You think about when you were at was it the Kavanaugh? Where was that where you got attacked and all the crowds came out? And there's been a number of things, but a lot of this came as a result of writing about these heroes. You write about these heroes and you think, well, if that's, if bad stuff is coming in my direction, how would they behave? What did they do? And that's what's made me so vocal about this kind of stuff. And it's why I'm excited about you and your book of daring faith in a cowardly world, because we are meant to live this way. We were meant to live heroically. We're meant to be participating with God in fighting against the evil in the world against all of these things. And if you're not doing that, you're missing it, folks. It's the most glorious adventure. God literally created us for this adventure. So it's kind of like being a car without gas in the tank, sitting in a parking lot. That's not what you're made for.

Ken welcome. Thanks, man. Oh, it's always good to see you Eric. Well, it's good to see you, your honor. He usually likes to in New York with a good start. I know that this is the 25th anniversary. Is that can that be? 1.4 million men at the Washington mall. It's the biggest gathering in the history of Washington, D.C.. And when they left that mall, they policed the area so well, there wasn't a gum wrapper left on the ground. So you know when those environmentalist groups come together in D.C. to say how much they love the whales or whatever, then they leave the trash everywhere. When the biggest gathering in the history of D.C. all Christian men got together, they left the place spotless. That says a lot about. I was there, it's a little bit hard for me to believe that it could be 25 years ago, but I guess 1997 suddenly he kind of crept up, but it suddenly became 25 years in the past as of right now. That is amazing. Because I do remember it like it was yesterday. I went down with a whole group of dear Friends from Connecticut. I was living in new Canaan, Connecticut. We started something called the new Canaan society. And in a way, it grew out of our time at promise keepers in D.C.. I mean, it's just amazing to me, I feel like, you know, we just parked our car and we're walking. We walk past the Iwo Jima memorial down, down, down, and it was, it was unlike anything I've ever seen. There were 12 jumbotrons. I think all the jumbotrons that existed in America at the time were at on the mall in D.C. because so many people were there, unless you have vast jumbo trons, nobody could conceivably see the stage. It was so far away. Amazing. Well, I want to talk to you about your new book, a daring faith in a cowardly world, but it seems to me that it relates to promise keepers. This is not a coincidence that you who can Harrison who are the new head of promise keepers would write a book with a title adhering faith in a cowardly world. What led you to write the book. And frankly, what do you mean by that term adhering faith in a cowardly world? Yeah, well, you know, I used to be an LA cop, right? I mean, that's how I started my career. And I traced death many times. But when I was 30 years old, I got hit by a jet ski, and it messed me up on one side, and I was in the emergency room. And the doctor walked in and said, here's the thing, man. He actually called me dude in the emergency. Here's the thing, dude. You have ruptured your liver. If less than 40% of it is ruptured, we're going to light flex you out, cut it out. And it'll grow back. If it's more than 40%, you have 5 hours to live. Have a nice day. He told you this? He told me this. And I actually stopped him. I said, wait a minute. How will I die? He goes, what do you mean, dude, do you want to have a liver? I said, well, what kills me? Like, okay, I want to but what does that mean? He said, well, your body will poison itself to death. In 5 hours, excuse me. So you were 30 years old..

"It's harrowing. So that's in our two today. We'll talk to him for a little bit. We're going to talk to our friends at the alliance defending freedom. I should mention before we go to Ken Harrison with promise keepers. We're doing this month. This month only a fundraiser for the alliance defending freedom. Their heroes. And I'm asking you bluntly to help them do what they do. They go to the Supreme Court. They fight for religious liberty for liberty. They get paid almost nothing folks to do this. They are absolute heroes. You really should support them. You should know about them. So go to our website, metaxas, talk, dot com. You'll see it when you go to metaxas talk dot com. There's a banner. But they really need our help to do what they do. And you know, I'd like to think that part of what's going on in this season in our lives and in America is we're waking up to the fact that we've got to do more. We've been sold this story that everything's fine and we just have to, you know, be a good person and drift along. It's like, no, liberty, it costs us something. We have to do something in the middle of it. So we have to support those who are standing up, support those who are being canceled, support those who are working hard on our behalf. So right now we want to focus on the alliance defending freedom. So if you go to metaxas talk dot com, you will see that you can support them there. And Alvin, you know what we're going to do. Now what? What? Yes, you do. You know what we're going to do. We are going to give three grand prizes. We don't care what you give to the alliance defending freedom. If you give anything to let, now, some people can give generously and I really hope you will. I mean, everyone can give generously, but some people can give particularly generously. And I want to say whatever you give, your name goes into a proverbial hat and we pull it out and we pick three grand prize winners. And those grand prize winners get signed, copies of many of my books, Alban's books, you get all kinds of swag, all kinds of stuff. Everything we can cram into the box, three grand prize winners. It's really fun and we want to just encourage you to do something. You know, you can do it in somebody's name if you want. But we've got to support those who are fighting for our liberties in America. And the alliance defending freedom at the top of the list. You've got to understand folks. We're in a battle right now. We didn't have to do this, you know, a few decades ago. But right now, we're in a tremendous battle and people are being persecuted and you have to have champions in the legal sphere and alliance with any freedom there at the top. We should also mention speaking of what we're doing this month. We're not just doing a fundraiser with lies defending freedom and taxes stock dot com, but we just got word that nutrimetics dot com, which is one of our sponsors on this program is offering this month only 30% off if you use the code, Eric. Now, you know, I'm not much with numbers, but 30% off, I think that means you're only paying 70% of whatever the price is. I just did that in my head. Wow. 30% off is kind of generous on their part. So I want you to take advantage of their generosity, go to new traumatic dot com, use the code Eric. I use their melatonin. There's zinc their magnesium, their vitamin C, their vitamin D and a raft of other things, unmentionables. But seriously, 30% off is a lot. So we want to let you know they're doing that. Every once in a while, they'll do that, and they said they want to do it for the whole month. So I do want to ask you to go to nutrimetics dot com and stock up while they are at 30 percent off for this month..

"This type of economy. But I agree. It's such a long far stretch that these people come up with these types of ways to be offended and be victimized and fill a press. It's almost impressive. It's like, you put a lot of creativity into that to find a way to be offended, well done. But then they wonder why they're the most miserable humans on earth, right? Because you stew and stuff like that. Yeah. And just to make a point, I'm not even sure this, I'm doing this on the fly here. Obviously, Donald is banned from social media platforms as we know. Is Vladimir Putin still on Twitter right now or any of these people that the people, whether it's a lot of your Putin or legitimate terrorist groups in all around the Middle East, they're all, hey, open arms to come on in to Facebook to Instagram to Twitter to wherever you wherever you want because at least you're not pissing off the left. Right, and you're not hurting anybody's feelings, right? Well, they're feelings, I should say. Yeah, they're not. President Putin is obviously hurting some people's feelings right now as we know. And killing people off. But let's keep on the topic of censorship for a second too with some of these athletes. You know, the LeBron James of the world, right? I mean, he's your easiest example. You know, they don't like a January 6th insurrection because it was so violent and dangerous that day that, oh my heavens, what were you going to do there? But, you know, BLM burning down the streets of America and I get this argument all the time. Well, that's not a government building. I don't give a shit what it is, right? You're burning down businesses, you're burning down the police stations, I would consider that a government building in Seattle. What do you mean government buildings weren't burned down? Right. So these people and then you have the Kamala Harris as you have the LeBron James. And again, I'm not condoning January 6th. I wouldn't have been caught dead there going into the capitol. I want to stress that first off. That is not who I am and I would never have done that. However, you know, these people Kamala Harris, you know, funding a bail fund for BLM supporters. Like she said before the election, right? You have people like LeBron that put out tweets of ripping that police officer and things of that nature that actually save somebody's life. It looked like that day. You know, why are there no repercussions and where will there ever be? Well, the boogeyman get those types of people because obviously money fixes a lot. And to use one more example, you know, we canceled Donald Trump, we cancel other people like him, yet we're okay with Jeffrey Epstein still, right? We're still okay there. Nobody involved with Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton and others, has been looked at, right? Yeah. I mean, the double standard, the hypocrisy is. Impressive, almost like it is so disgusting that they can get away with this and but to answer a few of your questions or to go back to a few of your things, government building or not. I mean, government statues very historic things that mean a lot to a lot of people were destroyed. What about our feelings?.

He's also got a great event coming up at the end of the month, so we're going to talk about that later on. But Harrison, welcome, and thanks for coming on. Thank you for having me again. It was a great talking last week and so I'm excited to hopefully be able to get into a little bit more detail of all those different topics. Yeah, we won't have any commercial breaks today, so that'll be fun. We can just rifle right through it. Can you tell our listeners, I know some people heard you last weekend, but can you tell our listeners a little bit about your background where you came from and why you're so involved in this movement now, especially as you said, the anti woke CEO? Yes, absolutely. You know, one of the first things I like to tell everybody is that up until about two years ago, I was completely politically agnostic. I wanted to stay away from politics, you know, mind my own business, leave politics to the politicians because my business over here doesn't have anything to do with politics. I don't want my name to be associated with corruption or immorality in so many of my great business colleagues, great people, felt the same way. You know, it's like, you know, let's just, mind our own business over here, let them do their thing. Well, if 2020 taught us nothing else, it's that your business might not care about politics, but politics cares about your business with how they are able to come in and decide who's essential who's not, who needs to abide by Fauci.

"Them to only do one thing would just share that spring video with every single person there network. That's it so it's literally a copy paste on every on facebook if all fifty thousand did that with thousand people each that's like five million people like right off the bat. Seventeen percent of them convert to spring members holy crap that's immediate billion spring members. Ride to win. That solves those problems case. That's three got what fourteen got us your two or three other top ones that you think. Let's move the needle right. Because what i love about this is this could apply to anyone doing anything right. It could apply to business. It could apply to somebody else who runs a nonprofit. It could apply to somebody that wants to support charity water and wants to think about how they can help. So and i love the idea of levers that you could pull when lever is go to all the people that are already familiar with the cause that are already investing get them to further their investment by raising awareness through their own networks. Okay so what else. Yeah i would say the next thing is pick your top hundred influencers who have donated who have raised the most money for you for charity water and have them always promote thirst. Whenever there another person show something. I do when somebody asked me for a book recommendation. I always said that. The number one book. I've ever read thirst by scott harrison. I do that for two reasons one because it is. It's my top three but the other reason is because i would rather promote that book that's actually going to do something for the human race than promote the other two books in my top. Three that people can just before. So that's another thing i do. Well left lewis house. Did that at every podcast attended. Imagine how much traction that book would get would-be absolutely crazy. And the same way that most of his copies that got sold was because of jerry vs community gary. You promoted the crap out of scott when he interviewed him. I'd just wish everyone else would do that. Because everyone needs access to clean water so that would be. The third tactic would give and the fourth tactic. I would give is making sure that everyone who's liking the charity water. Facebook pages also bought a copy of thirst so one strategy. I gave him the book launch. Actually to the rest of the group is. I told them on shirty water and see who in your friend group has already liked their facebook page. So you see on facebook. This person has liked whatever and them personally and say there's a book out. Most people idea said oh. I didn't know there was a book and they bought the book right away. If every single person did that we would sell easily hundred thousand copies of thirst and that would really increase the personal brand because we would have that in every household read the book there inspired. They feel connected. They want to be a part of the mission. Okay so for somebody. That's watching or listening right now to this. What would be your advice to them clearly. It's read thirst. What else and become a member of spring. What else could they be doing. Proactively to support scott in his mission and or could they be doing to to study scott to learn more about him. Like you've done right and here's the principal. I want to show that everyone is find your scott right fine..

"That i was meant to solve one problem too. And that later ended up. Becoming master talked two years later. When i had the idea for it for public speaking but basically what this does is it. Gives a blueprint for any change maker in the world who actually wants to make a difference in the world to know exactly how to do it. Play by play dots. what scott. Harrison's book is for so for anyone who actually wants to make a difference that's must read in my opinion. Do you think the change maker who this would apply. Four is someone who's solving a problem for. Let's call it. You mentioned people who are in the lower ten percent from just a standpoint of financial wellbeing. Is that who it's meant for anybody that wants to solve a world problem. Great great follow up. This is more of a personal opinion. I think it's relevant for everybody whether you're tried to build the next test or whether you're trying to build next nonprofit you definitely want to rereading scott's book and i'll tell you why whenever we think most of problems in the world. It's very depressing. Billy you're like oh this is happening. Everyone's always complaining about everything that's happening in the world and it's just bad energy bad. You don't wanna do it. You don't feel you could accomplish it. Scott harrison is a textbook example of someone who wasn't supposed to change the world and who did at a at a level that is unfathomable for the world. So that's why. I'm a big advocate of what he does and also the principles that he teaches in. The book was Entrepreneur or someone who's trying to solve a problem for the bottom ten. Got it okay. So let's talk about some of those principles you call it a blueprint. What are some of the key tenants of the blueprint that stand out. Obviously somebody needs to read the book to get all the the nuance in the detail. Let's use broad strokes here. What are some of the key elements that stand out yes. So let's summarize a couple of points that touched on earlier so people have a nice clean bullet. Los number one is storytelling. Your ideas in a way that includes everybody not just yourself. That's probably the biggest insight. I got from thirst. So for example and this is good feedback for even me introspective as we're talking when i started master talk whenever i would communicate. It was always. Hey billy. I'm starting this youtube gentle. Because i want to make public speaking videos to see what i can do to show. What the expertise. That was the word i would use and today that messaging has changed dramatically from the i to the league where hey master talk us for the seven year old girl who can't afford any part of the world. I'm creating videos for them. That they grow up watching my videos and become much better much better. Communicated that was so notice how my languaging has changed from. I two other people. And that's something that scott harrison does not just from a messaging perspective but also from a branding and marketing perspectives. Like the example..

It's about being a strong man who uses his strength for others. That's the gop. A love of jesus and that idea has fallen on hard times in the culture so when you see strongmen people say this toxic masculinity because they've seen so much broken they associate strength not with protection and love but with abuse or whatever it is and that's kind of the culture has kind of You know baked a cake out of that. They really are focused on that idea. And god's idea and there people that just they. They don't believe god's idea they think it's it's baloney they just don't think they're any men like us who really care about women at were children. They were about ourselves now. You know we can't convince them but we can live differently and to me that's a promise keepers is. It's about helping men to live differently so that the people in their lives at least see that difference and see god through them so to me. It's just the most beautiful idea. And it's a cultural moment because we particularly need this now in the culture so i just want behalf of my audience to say. Thank you to you for stepping up and doing this. 'cause lives are going to be changed and i i. There's just no way to know. Think about the families that are going to be touched. Because i remember you know in the nineties when promise keepers was going on people's lives changed men came to god and their lives have been different for twenty five years so it's It's just beautiful. I'm so excited that this is finally happening in dallas stadium. And we're going to be pretty bold one of the things. The promise keepers did not do in the nineties that we're doing now is stand for life so we are adamantly antiabortion pro-life which promise keepers wasn't and i said if you can i tell men to be men be courage courageous if they're not doing anything about the one and a half million babies being murdered in the womb right now but part of the way that we fight that is by getting mended. Stand up to the responsibilities and take responsibility for the baby. They conceived because the majority of women say they had an abortion because the man took off being. Leon man say that again because very few people know this. This is the key. Please say that they're true. The actual Surveys that have been done. Fifty five percent of women and i suspect it's much higher. Say they had an abortion because the man who fathered that baby left. Okay so men are the ones that from abortions and my wife who's been working in that world for quite a while she has told me over and over that the statistics show that if a woman is has an unplanned pregnancy if anyone and especially the man will step up and say i will walk with you through this time to have this child. I will help you. everything changes. The media doesn't cover that they don't cover that and they keep portraying it as this beautiful wonderful thing for a woman to kill her baby and to ruin her life. But you can't talk about the wounding because you're supposed to celebrate this. That harms women folks. It harms women. Men get off scot-free they walk away and the fact that you guys are dealing with this promise keepers. That's good news. That is thrilling. We're not going to shy away from these issues. We gotta get that. The other thing is we will take on racial reconciliation from a biblical worldview. Everything starts with repentance of sin on the grace of jesus you know what is what is racism ultimately. It's just image spiritual immaturity to look down on anybody for any reason. Class education race denomination. It's all spiritual immaturity or taken that onto. Because i've seen the results of this when i was a cop in south central los angeles we had ninety. Five percent of the people. Were really good. People's is compton watts. For for new yorkers don't know but the really really high crime area these were ninety five percent of good people that were held hostage by five percent of what fatherless boys a macho attitude boys never learned self control it was all about violence and sexual promiscuity and that culture is now spreading like a virus across america. We need to bring fathers back to teach their sons self control respect for women and but that's all sort of symptom the core getting right back to it since the great jesus being filled the holy spirit. Those are the things that changed people from the inside out. So we're gonna tell men you are not a lustful creature that can help yourself. You're a guy living in your flesh and when you start to live in the spirit those things change from the inside out so we're not gonna tell you. Hey try really hard to be a better guy. Try really hard not to lust after women are try really hard not to look at pornography or going to tell men you need to change from the inside. I was talking to a famous Spiritual leader who tell me. Can you gotta stop telling guys to repent of pornography to stop looking at it. They need counseling. They need a whole process. And he lectured me for a while. And i said so. You're telling me that. What i shouldn't say is if you're i causes you to stumble cut it out of your head. It's better to them with one item and with too. 'cause that's what jesus said i'll how about if i go with what jesus said in you preach your little stuff doesn't mean guys don't necessarily need counseling. Jesus said repent. And i'll change you from the inside out. Jesus didn't say go find counselor. That's the kind of humble but direct talk. We're going to have man-to-man in the stadium in a few days. And so i'd say by the way in the nineties. Forty five percent of the tickets sold the promise keepers result of women descend their husbands and their sons ladies. Get your husband's there. Tell them the best thing you can do for our marriage. At and t. stadium because we're going to run up some real talk with your that see. That is a fact. I know that and i and i know men whose lives were changed. Their families were blessed. Their wives were blessed. So you have to be careful. I really say to anybody listening yesterday. Careful not to give a ear to these detractors. In a funny way that is the enemy using that situation to distract us. Just blow it off. That's like you try. You know it's like to you're trying to put out a fire and save lives and somebody says hey you know i. I don't like something about you are. You're not listening to them..
"harrison" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Couple of days. My goodness folks do not miss this. We'll be right back folks talking to the head of promise keepers can harrison welcome. I gotta ask you He you you took this on Some years ago. You said we're going to bring promise keepers back. I was thrilled to hear it. But to no you personally and to hear your vision where you're coming from. You really get this in a way. That i was i. I was surprised in the sense. That i just Anytime somebody like rises to where you are in this to really understand it and understand. We're in a really different place. Twenty five years later We've got as you say you know men wearing dresses and confused people on a level that we've never seen before so we need to. We need to pray for those people and really to offer them help. You can't force help on people but you can offer them help. You say hey. This is god's idea of manhood and he loves you and died for you. And if you're interested in that were here to help that's to me. A huge part of what promise keepers is today. Eric i respect your mind a lot of red. Also your books. I love what you have to say. And you you nailed it perfectly in the last segment. We see so much hatred and vitriol poured out towards us. Some who are we. We're just a bunch of guys who want to worship. Jesus will where's that coming from. It's coming from people who were deeply wounded were putting on the stereotypes and the hurt from their past onto us simply because we're father figures and so. How do we respond. We respond in love and truth and we endure through that. And so we don't get angry or patient in our Hurts hurt with those people who are trying to hurt us. Because we realise such illogical hatred doesn't come from nowhere. It came from deep wound that they have in the only healing for that wounded. Christ is not logic. It's not the republican already. That's right being arguer than them. It is saying whatever you have if you would let go of that. Bitterness and that hate and repent jesus will come in and fill in in hilo wounds. That's what we need to be about as men. So i just got done meeting with my whole bodyguard team down there because we have so many death threats for me trying to get from this hotel over to that stadium. It's insane. I've got the swat team from the arlington police. Ready to defend me. Who am i. I'm just a guy that wants to tell people about. Jesus it's an amazing. But this is where i mean. There's something healthy in this and clarifying that. When i mean 'cause look we have to be clear. This is not a sociological or psychiatric battle is a spiritual battle and there are forces dark spiritual forces that despise god and anything that comes from him so a biblical idea of what it is to be a man to be strong for others to be a strong man who does not serve himself. But says i'm gonna use my strength to lay down my life for you whether it's my wife or my kids or anybody. That's god's idea of strength ultimate self-sacrificial agape love to lay down my life. It's so beautiful and so powerful and so yes. The enemy is threatened and anybody who has made a space for him in their lives through their wounded nece We'll get angry and stuff. So i would say this is your over. The target god is doing this. And the more victories the more nastiness the more you know they're going to be healings. Lives are going to be changed. Ken are going to be changed. On the sixteenth two days from now and three days from now in dallas right behind you lives and families are going to be changed for ever. It doesn't get better than that can. It doesn't get better than that. That jesus in our time i mean i just. I'm so thrilled that you're doing this and i'm thrilled. There are seats. Because i was thinking like i know people in the area who might not know about this so promise keepers dot org and they can make you'd tickets so we'll say what will happen on the day.

And i've had the privilege of meeting some of these folks but i know he's in he's in that area so i'm so glad he'll be with you on that stage one of the things that you're hearing that you know that maybe some of your audience knows. Is that what you're hearing are serious. Bible teachers and people came to me when i started promise keepers in ken. You know you have to have a plan for the young people you have to have this and that and the other i said you know. Here's my plan for the young people. We're going to preach order got. We're not gonna do skinny jeans and fog. Machines others and fog machines using can't use fog machines the head i'm saying not through me. He can't but i think the young people looking for father figures you know so you and i are similar age when we were kids. Can you imagine if you'd have gone to church in night in the nineteen eighties and the pastor was wearing parachute pants in an iron maiden teacher. 'cause he was trying to be like you you thought he was a clown and today we have so many fifty something year olds trying to act like twenty year olds to attract them.

"harrison" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Remember promise keepers remember. Yeah well not long ago. Maybe a year ago. You're gonna go. I had dinner with a friend. Who said i want to introduce you to the new person behind promise keepers. They're kind of doing a reboot. And i thought really. Wow interesting well. At the end of that dinner. I was so excited. I said i cannot possibly wait until this happens because ken harrison Who is my guest right now. Maybe understand that he gets it. He understands where we are in the culture and he understands what promise keepers can be right now. Ken welcome back. It's don't have stakes in front of us. I'm still enjoying the conversation. I cannot believe that this is happening in a few days to just tell my audience because this is when i met you i got so excited because i understood because i got you thought. Wow you you understand what you have in your hands. This is a huge thing that got us entrusted you with for such a time as this to use the cliche which is exactly correct. What is happening in a few days right here. This is the real stadium behind me. Okay behind you for people to see this video. You can't see it on video. That's because he didn't go to eric. Metaxas dot com and subscribe to a newsletter folks. What do i need to say. Okay i can see the stadium. I was just there a few weeks ago in the stadium and this is huge. This is eighty thousand men on the sixteenth and seventeenth of this month. That's in a couple of days. Man i cannot get over this. So what's the vision. Yeah we did. A virtual event last year because of covid we had one point two million men in eighty four countries. Watch that event and this time we'll have the stadium with guys in it but will also have i think over five hundred different simulcasts locations. All world signed up liberia Last week we sign sierra leone. I don't even know where these places are. Eric you're smarter than me. You probably do but we're there in africa. That's as far as i can take. I think north wore west. It's so yeah so what we realize. Is that the win. When men are screwed up women and children suffer and so people say and i've been attacked man more from the right from the left from both sides. You know the left has been calling for my death. You know for all this sweet but they they're calling for your death in love. Can you need to appreciate the heart. Look at their hearts. Look way before you get into that whole thing. I wanna say this. And i say this to you and to anybody. Who's doing this kind of thing. Do not take criticism seriously enough to respond very much. You dignify when you mentioned an article in this paper or that paper. These are nobodies who have nothing to write about. They don't know anything about who you are. What promise keepers is what it is to be a christian man with the scripture says so they're just writing out of out of hatred they're not really journalists and i think sometimes we dignify that too much so of course i remember you know. Twenty five years ago. How promise keepers. Who's being attacked in the media and it was it was preposterous. Then of course it's an infinitely more preposterous now. There is just no question in my mind that what promise keepers always was and is now is spectacular. And if you care about women and children you just set it. There is nothing better than promise keeper so people who want to attack it. I honestly for the sake of the women and the children i would blow off those criticisms. It's not worth dignifying. Yes twenty Were gonna go as my system walk in with this list of we gotta find where this guy is. We gotta kill him and she says. Aren't you worried. unlike gina. These are a bunch of guys in their boxer shorts screaming mom meatloaf. These aren't real people. I'm from the right. It's been disheartening. Because people are like. Why are you calling together just men. Don't you know that's unpopular right. Now hey hell but don't use those words but you have to understand that their their voices out there they are. Just they're they're not. There's no wisdom in it. And i just think i. I'm sorry you have to go through that but i'm glad that you're going through because i know you're the kind of person who can take this. You understand you look at it from biblical point of view but can you imagine. I mean people. Criticizing men gathering like isn't just. It's just amazing. Christians doing me want you. Wait till it's more popular i don't know. Did jesus tell us to wait until things were popularity. He tell us to go out and make disciples of all men and promise we would be hated if we were about his business. Look everybody knows. Jesus was a big sexist. He had twelve men around him. What is all about clearly. Jesus doesn't care about women and we're just following his lead right. Yeah there you go. We've solved the problem. We have to do is calm and back to their identity in christ and start to teach them how to think again because they've been so brainwashed into apathy by not only the world but by much of the institutional church. We've taught men sit down. Shut up in the inupiat. Come back next week and do it again. That's not the gospel. The gospel is not come. And see the gospels go intel. We're supposed to be about our fathers work in action and so as we call them together in the stadium back here..
