Jesus Christ Keeps Charlie Kirk Motivated
"What keeps you motivated. I mean the most important thing in my life is my relationship with jesus christ and my relationship with god which we should. We need to remind ourselves of that every single day and say it out loud and say clearly. Because that's really what's going on here isn't it. It's a spiritual war all of this material side of it is just a manifestation of unclean spirits impure spirits that are are going at it and that's what the scriptures tell us when it comes to what i care about in the political domain. I believe the scriptures. Tell us that we need to care about things that are beautiful and good and that are true. This is the greatest country ever to exist in the history of the world. And i i am twenty seven years old and i say that i want to think tonight as we go through this how much we've seen our country changed just in the last nine months and especially how much we've seen. Our country changed in the last nine years or ten years when i was in high school ten years ago. The things that we are now we've now seen implemented would be completely unthinkable now that we just take as just kind of common sense as anything but common sense but they say is just kind of normal things. The new normal. And i'm frustrated in a lot of different ways and it compels me to action. Because i will not sit idly by while this gift that we have been given the greatest country ever to exist a constitutional republic of and by and for the people that so many people have sacrificed for that. I just have to sit idly by while a while a very sinister and malevolent and clever and craft the minority takes over this country while they do not control a majority of the people and by every single measure. They are only doing it because we've allowed them to do it. And now maybe not you. But that we have allowed them to get way too far as far as cultural control way too far for way too long and they've also been willing. Which a word. I want to talk about tonight to get into the institutions to push against conservatives in christians

It's like i want to select certain things that i want god to bring into my life to teach me lessons but not only do. I want to select the lesson. I want to select the outcome of the lesson. Police have none of it. He's saying you cannot customize. Christ you can't customize christ. Paul went through to be who he was. It cost him greatly in chapter. Eleven of second corinthians. He mentions a shipwreck. He mentioned the stoning. He mentioned many storms. He mentioned betrayals. He mentions opponents. All of that. In second corinthians chapter eleven. Paul who paid the price to be an apostle of jesus christ he mentions all the things that made him such a master pastor. Now he's writing to a church that is in rebellion. And he's reminding them of his resume. Says i could brag even more. But i'm not going to. I just want you to judge me based on my results and see if i'm somebody were listening to but before you judge me based on my results let me remind you a little bit more of what qualifies me to be in this position. We live in a day a lot of advice and not much authority..

Does Time Really Heal All Wounds?
"Channel Discovery Channel stuff about 9 11. Some of it was new. Some footage I hadn't seen before. And, Yeah, I wasn't really feeling optimistic. So, like three hours before the show, I said, um, how about you Just throw all that out? And the producers were great. They were like, Sure. No problem Do you want to do? I'm like I don't know other side on the air. I got on the air and said, You know, you hear these old cliches and adages, You know time heals all wounds and stuff when 9 11 and I said, does it Does it really This doesn't heal mind. I don't mind, you know. I don't feel healed The matter of fact, I feel more pissed off now than I did then. Sense of rage and I learned something I hadn't learned before that. On one of the flights. That hit the Pentagon. There was a young lady who had won a National Geographic Contests. He was going to some whatever island to look at sea turtles or something like that. She was on that plane with her teacher, and I thought I just want to kick someone's ass right now. I have to hear that. You know? I don't feel peeled much at all. I don't know about you. Maybe it's just me, but I just felt anger. I know it's not right. I get it, folks. I know it. I mean, I I believe in Jesus Christ. I don't run from that. I've said it on this radio. I'll say it again. I'm proud of that. And I know the message is always redemption and You know, love your enemies and stuff, but I'd be lying if I said that work this weekend. You know, it really
Prophet Mike Thompson: The Cure for the Lawlessness Is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
"I want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit

Jesus christ by the spirit of the living god may only the truth come forth in jesus mighty name amen amen. Now though the this the way this goes is the lord talks about the breaking point and then he goes into the threats that are gonna come from iran and other nations okay so he starts with the breaking point and he say ways into iran making threatening destructive statements you know not only hezbollah but this funders from other countries involved in this that wanna make an iran and extension of them so basically the lord is warning he also says it was going to be a leader within the ayatollahs court that was going to suddenly fall as a sign. The lord has gone ahead of his people. Hold on hold on you. Just said i want to tell people you're not just riffing. The lord gave you an actual word. People can read exactly what it was at. Amanda grace for him. That's the number four. Amanda grace for him dot blogs dot com people's. Read this. But we're just talking about the word you've got and you said something very specific. You said a major leader in iran is going to be exposed. Is that what you said. Well they would suddenly fall as a sign. The lord is gone out ahead of his people to deal with a very power hungry corrupted tho and he says the prince of persia will not withstand too. We send strike them this time. The prince of persia was the principality even back in that day in the book of daniel that which stood gabriel from coming to daniel with the message from the lord and michael had to be called into him so the lord is basically saying.

Our Fear of Death Should Be Driving Us to the Church
"Do we balance not not having on because air subtle talked about having having the moderation of all things right so you don't want all of a sudden kind of drive on one hours of sleep and not wear your seat. You wanna be reckless right. And how do you balance that. Yes first of all this is good warning. How many people in twenty twenty and twenty twenty one of died of artifacts bronchial infections diabetes. We don't know. I've got doctors who've told me we don't know because everything has been labeled and wrapped around cova for example that fear factor has skewed everything we've had scientists tell us we won't know the data regarding the future. It messes up everything but having said that what are we afraid of. I'm afraid of getting it. Are you afraid of getting diabetes. Do you watch what you eat. Are you afraid no no afraid of those things it has been so talked up and i'm not look it's a. It's a very very serious illness. I get it but it's not the only illness that's out there. The point that i think has happened across the nation and around the world is people all of a sudden became very very fearful of dying and my argument is this. You're gonna die sooner or later. Do you know jesus christ. This fear should be driving you to church not away from church jack. A love of the world or for the world yeah. That's what i'm saying. Is that like for example. Bob in the nineteen sixties. We had a pandemic and we handled it totally differently. Do you think people are more attached to the world. Then word yes. That's one of the reasons we reacted the way we did. Yes absolutely and it's it's sad and it's sadder when it's manifested in the pulpit and then the ministry where that's where the leadership should come from wishes steer them through the waters of crisis
Creationist Ken Ham Says Jesus Can't Save Space Aliens
"We have some stories to talk about. I look. I'm going to start today. So i i i'm gonna paint a scene for you. Okay so imagine some pieces on on the grass in a line leading to shed sh yes and in the shed a long glo e finger pointing towards the heavens to fold whole poor little e. t. stuck here on earth and guess who is not very friendly to all the. Et's out there. Anybody know some people would be very friendly to the but ken ham is not one of them. Could what are you doing buddy. He well first of all. He doesn't really believe that there is life outside of earth. But he did. He just tweeted out that they should not expect any form of salvation from our jesus christ so if you're out there aliens let your own damn lord and savior seriously and it actually feels very much like like a little kid who was like dutt's our savior. You better get her own. Do your jesus. So this way tweeted. Hilariously says jesus came to save us not another planet to save another race of peeing. That's literally walking. So he's says salvation through christ is only for the academic say a down at grace. So if you're not from adam. Jesus crisis not for you.
How to Structure Your Spirituality With Hindu Priest Dandapani
"I always think that are four steps. When it comes to spirituality step one is philosophy. We have to gain absolute clarity on what philosophy is. A philosophy defines the goal. The goal defiance the pass. The path defines the lifestyle. I'll give you a very simple example. Know christianity's a huge religion with many denominations if you take somebody for one denomination -scribed to christian philosophy. And you johansen. What is the goal person may be to say. Oh my goal is to enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus christ my lord and say this. I need to go to heaven. And so krylov. Cigarettes nicole now. You have that clear goal. It's external because heaven is somewhere up there. It's where they typically point to the sky. then what's the path to get there and is what is the lifestyle. I need to live in order to stay on the path to get to the coke. Now if you hindu like myself the philosophy i subscribe to defines the goal as experiencing divinity inside of me divinities pure energy that exists in everything including me and you my goal is to go inward and experience of energy inside. I mean that's the goal now. That goal defines a pass that have defines a lifestyle so i always feel when it comes to spirituality. It's always good to reverse engineer. Everybody works forward looking back with allow so much more clarity of how then do i structure my life. My lifestyle than is pot civis. What practices i do. The lifestyle live needs to keep me on to pass. That gets me to my clearly defined
Here Are Charlie Kirk’s Favorite Scriptures in the Entire Bible
"One of my favorite scriptures in the entire bible is when jesus says and it was kind of a mic drop moment the bible says do not put your lord your gods at the test my favorite pieces of scripture. Satan hates to books more than any other books of the bible. More than its genesis and revelation. Why because genesis tells us nature and revelers revelation tells you how it's going to end satan getting thrown into the pit of fire. All of us must realize that as you get into this fight that you're gonna come across doubt cynicism all of a sudden deaths in yourself all of you are prone targets for satan to try to come after you. I don't talk too much on this. But i could just riff on a little bit more three ways that satan and tries to attack you through your environment the earthly vows and through certain flesh. Leeson's your environment who you hanging around or you're on people that are filled with the spirit optimism that actually wanna to pursue righteousness or people that are negative. People are worried about earthly and worldly things. You are the combination of the people you spend the most time with the five people you spend the most time with. That is who you are number two earthly vows. Jesus says very clearly that you do not make vows let your yes. Be yes in your. Nobody knows why is because if you try to make a valid i will never drink again all of a sudden satan knows exactly what is against you. What's the proper way to say it. Only thanks to the grace and mercy and power of jesus. Christ will never take another drink again. Let jesus fight the spiritual war for you. And then finally flush flash and sends it says varies a now call called satan. It's theologians are divided on this. The god of this world. Jesus never said that he said that satan is the prince of this world that we are in enemy occupied territory and guess what we have to launch a sabotage campaign against. Satan's dominance here in this world. What does that look like being salt and light and it says in romans to love what is good and hate what is evil and so i love all those verses by my favorite of all of it is in the book of titus from that mr jude. Book of jude. Where even the archangel michael himself when he goes to fight satan himself you know what he says lord rebuke you.
Is There a Climate Crisis?
"The green new deal implies number one that we have climate emergency climate crisis that we have twelve years by which to act. And the clock's ticking. I think we're down to just a little over ten years now. Another one of these tipping points and by the way in the book i trace the first climate tipping point to eighteen sixty four where we were warned of climatic excess unless we did something so these tipping points have been around for centuries literally but the green new deal even if we faced a climate emergency. They claim which we don't. We don't even face really measurable climate implants by mankind. I mean that's the thing is hundreds of factors that influence the climate. You can't distinguish him. From natural variability. we probably warmer during the period. When jesus was on earth with when during the time jesus christ was born and medieval warming period. We were probably warmer according to peer reviewed studies waiting till the world's end around that time in the middle ages red that what do you mean by end. Didn't they have some kind of a climate disaster wiped out the population actually Maybe not because here we are. I gotta tell you. I remember hearing this kind of stuff in the eighties in college these predictions. That were just you know really dire predictions and then time would pass. Nothing would happen and nobody would mention it again. So you do get a little bit like the boy crying wolf but what you just said to me. The most important piece is that no matter what the weather is doing You're saying that it's simply not a fact that human activity is the main cause. So what a lot of these people are screaming about. They make it sound like. We're all doing something that we could change. And that would solve the problem and we. We don't know that so they're asking us to spend many many billions trillions of dollars to do something without a clear outcome. Isn't that really the main point
Why Autor Micah Wilder Was Threatened With Excommunication From the Mormon Church
"Monkey. You were saying earlier. That as you're going through this process you think anybody are thinking. Well okay Maybe i can help reform Mormonism from within whatever discovering is true and the mormons that you know they revere the word of god so they should be good with this At the same time of it doesn't work out that way. When did you get the phone. Call you or you have call elder wilder. When did that message come through. Did give us the background there. Yeah so what led up to. that is after. I'd come to this. saving faith. In revelation through the book of hebrews at the mormon church was not what it claimed to be I had actually publicly professed in front of about forty or fifty mormon missionaries. My new found faith. In jesus christ so as a missionary whose concluding my two year mission trip i was supposed to stand up and share my testimony in my testimony had radically changed from the beginning of my mission to the end and so i actually publicly professed that. I believe that jesus was all that i needed that. I was saved by his grace and not by works. And i now new for the first time in my life that i had right standing with god and the forgiveness of my sins through the shed blood of christ and so as a result of that public testimony my mormon leader ended up calling me and said we need to. We need to chat and so that was when the two of us went into a meeting and we talked for about three hours. And i very candidly shared with him. The things that i had been reading in the bible that i come to know that salvation was independent of the mormon church of any religious institution but totally dependent on christ alone told him that i no longer needed the mormon prophet or any earthly man to mediate between me and god that there was one god and one mediator in that is christ and so all of these things I came forward To him and he responded by telling me that. I was filled with the spirit of the devil And i was being deceived by satan and then he threatened excommunicate me in my mission was terminated. Three weeks early and at that point then is a twenty one year old Mormon missionary was put on a plane and sent back to utah and had to face my family and my
Dissecting Benjamin Purnell and His Cult, the House of David
"After being booted out of ohio. The cornell's decided to relocate to the city of benton harbor where they settled on some land located on the southeastern shore of lake michigan there in nineteen. Oh three they founded religious society called the israelite house of david which aimed to reunite the twelve tribes of israel in hopes of preparing themselves to receive jesus christ upon his return to earth in the new millennium very long sentence. Yes so they're they've created the kalt role show credits. That's what we did. Yeah thanks for stopping by. Were you like in a movie when they say the name of the movie. I'm like when's the credits said take a shot. This goal was in line. With benjamin cornell's belief that he was the seventh and final messenger of god as prophesized by joanna south cod so big big shoes to fill. Yeah a little bit. Yeah more specifically. He was convinced that he had been entrusted to carry out the mission outlining the revelation chapter. Eleven verse fifteen which read quote and the seventh angel sounded and there were great voices in heaven saying the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our lord and his christ and he shall reign forever and ever and quote so basically wants to be The messenger of to god basically. It's always it's always to me that people that are super religious especially when you're in the mindset of being a cult leader or a member of a coal or something of the sort that you all of a sudden see yourself as this grand profit or character or a figure head. It's like where was the. Where is the bridge that gaps from lake normal minister. Who goes out and tells people about god to god chose me and i am in the to bring the apocalypse and bring jesus back in it. It's just always a funny jump
Caught up in Gods Epic
"Some stories don't satisfies best because there's no conclusion or injustice evil succeed great epochs such as tolkien's lord of the rings stare our imagination and touch our in our longings for a better world. We don't want epics like these. To end. We become involved with the characters and the plot but they do and and we have to come back to earth significantly in a world. That is crying out for identity. This very really interesting. The story of family forebears or culture. The bible has been described as the greatest story of told but it is an epic with a difference for it's set in the context of real events. Consider the opening lines of the letter to the asians in one long sentence from i three through fourteen week. Limps gods or inspiring epic his plan and purpose to draw us into it. The themes of god's love and grace a palpable is the subject of illness every main verb for example it has hey who has blessed us. He has freely bestowed upon us. His grace he has made known his will and purpose which he set forth in christ to unite all things. he accomplishes all things. According to the counselor. He's will the god of the bible is a big life-giving warm hearted loving god so different from the cold impersonal force of star wars and the ruthless rule of human dictatorships in verses. Five through eight. We learn what that love cost god. He destined us for adoption as his children through. Jesus christ according to the good pleasure of his will to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the beloved
Speaking & Living the Truth in Love With Dr. Albert Mohler
"Dr miller. Thank you so much for joining me again. You are such a voice of encouragement for me. As i listen to you on a daily basis in trying to make sense of really what can only be described as confusion and chaos. That something that you describe it as often as well whether it's coming to gender identity and the sexual and moral revolution that you talk about so much you're just the intricacies of policy in court decision so first of all. Thank you for that. Can you give a little bit of first briefing. Courage meant to christians who really just want to bury their head in the sand and to not look at. What's going on culturally and politically and just pretend like none of it's happening because we don't know what to do about it. Do you think it's important for us to kind of keep abreast on what's going on and why looks great to be with you. Allie beth and yes. I do want to offer that word of encouragement to christians not to stick our heads in the sand and try to ignore or be oblivious to what's going on because it's not just that we we have to be faithful to christ in the midst of our times we. We have to understand what we're up against there but it's even more importantly out of love for christ's church for fellow believers for our own children and grandchildren need to be thinking through these issues even ahead of the culture in order to be faithful when the culture throws the the next the next weapon at us and frankly they're coming fast and furiously and just love her own children and grandchildren and the determination that they grow up and be faithful to christ. It requires that we be very aware of the things going on around us. i understand. It's daunting and painful. And it's complicated. But the church of the lord. Jesus christ has all the resources we need to confront these issues with faith and without fear. That doesn't mean that that we don't understand what we're up against but we respond with faith and without fear. So that's a good word of encouragement knowing the truth is a good biblical. Principle and denying reality is never faithfulness.

Authentic vs. Phony Faith
"Christ having been offered wants to bear the sins of many will appear a second time not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him hebrews nine twenty eight. The question before us all is are we included in the many who sins christ bore and will we be saved at the second coming the answer of hebrews nine twenty eight years yes if we are eagerly waiting for him we can know that our sins are taken away and that we will be safe in the judgment if we trust christ in such a way that it makes us eager for his coming. There is a phony faith that claims to believe in christ. But he's only a fire insurance policy. Phony faith believes only to escape hail it has no real desire for christ in fact it would prefer if he did not come so that we can have as much of this world's pleasures as possible. This shows that a heart is not with christ but with the world so the issue for us is do we eagerly long for the coming of christ or do we want him to stay away wild. Our love affair with the world runs. Its course that is the question that tests the authenticity of faith. Let us be like the corinthians as we wait for the revealing of our lord. Jesus christ for strengthens one. Seven and like the philippians whose citizenship is in heaven and from it. We await a savior the lord. Jesus christ philippians three twenty.

We received an excellent recommendation from a listener. Asking us to tackle the topic of what it's like living with someone with ptsd. And i think patricia. And i are uniquely suited to tackle this since both of us. Have this diagnosis in in. Its for completely different reasons. This episode is going to be an unfiltered. Look at what. It's like to live with someone with post traumatic stress disorder and by way of introduction. This is the we served now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life. Your best life money erin perkins. I'm a. us army combat veteran daddy to two amazing kiddos host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today again by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome back to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here. Well good good so it's been a couple weeks right and last time we talked about the treatments. You're getting and things like that for depression. Talk to us a little bit before. We're gonna dive into the. Ptsd topic talked us a little bit. About how those are going those are going. I'm not going to be very honest. they're painful. I think Winning expecting almost a miracle. I mean you you let somebody shock your head for twenty minutes a day. You expect something but it's actually made my depression a little worse. They said that's normal. It can get worse before it gets better. So actually they're going to re map tomorrow and see if there's a different place. They need to put the magnet. But i think it's gonna go all right. Yeah we hope we hope and pray as well trained for this for that. This works in putting you through a lot of distress but like you said pain to try to to address the depression right. And so that's that's just one part of what can be a result of ptsd another city but the actually brit really brings up our our first thing to talk about is. Let's talk about ptsd a little bit. What it is. And how. I understand it. How do you understand. ptsd how. I understand it is. I mean we all know it stands for post traumatic stress disorder and that can be from your childhood from your teen years from adulthood. Something you went through something. You saw something you experienced. That was just traumatic for you. And i know that it can you know make you. Have you know nightmares it. Can you know how you can have memories of that trauma and then you avoid situations that you know make you think of that trauma and you know a lot of even soldiers you know. They get like hyper vigilant. You know because of how it makes them feel and it can call anxiety and depression as well. I think the hyper vigilance was one of the i. I realize that i that something was wrong right. I knew i had a lot of anger in. I was like i don't know why angry like i'm i'm not in the army anymore. I thought you the anger was just part of just being in the army. You're just mad something every day. And so i thought that it would go away and it didn't in fact he got worse and it. Was that hyper vigilance piece. I always felt. I still do. But i always felt ready. This constant state of readiness hyper vigilant. That's one of the behavioral parts because there's behavioral parts psychological mood in general sleep. And then you know it you can break them all down like you know behavioral is like you know you feel agitated or irritable or hof style or hyper vigilant like you were saying or you know you start doing self destructive things like you know. Drugs are becoming an alcoholic or or if he just completely isolate yourself. That's me raise my hand right there myself psychological as you know flashbacks which i don't have those fear that comes from nowhere severe anxiety failure to trust other people. Because you don't know what's going to happen the mood part of it. You know you lose interest or pleasure in doing stuff that you used to enjoy doing right or you feel like the severe guilt or you are incredibly lonely like you have tons of people around you. You have a family that loves you but you are so lonely and it messes with your sleep. It can cause you to sleep too much. Not enough to have horrific nightmares and a lot of people have detachment from other people and like intrusive thoughts that they just can't get rid of you know that you know. They go through their day and i guess to some other people they might look like legitimate list crazy but they just have these constant like thoughts and some people have to talk it out. You know there's so many parts to ptsd. yeah. I think that's one of the challenges with even realizing that you might have it right because there's so many parts to it. Depression anxiety intrusive thoughts avoiding situations. Not sleeping sleeping too much having horrific nightmares having too much emotion having no emotion at all. There's so many things and so what i was told. People especially veterans is if if something feels off. Don't try to figure out if you have. Ptsd anxiety or depression go to mental health right and talk to the professional about it and let them figure out whether you use the va or you go out to out to in the civilian sector. You go get it checked out. Because there's there's nothing that's not going to hurt you to go get it checked out right and that was a question that i was going to ask you. Is you know like when did you realize you had ptsd. I think it was what year wise was twenty seventeen. I got out and twenty. Fourteen of twenty seventeen anger progressively got worse. The hyper vigilance. And what. I say hyper vigilance. I i don't mean just like you know on edge all the time and i guess that was part of it but for me it was this feeling like i'm about to go into a fight like just ready like i mean you know kind of like almost kind of like a sprinter would be at the starting line. Okay here we go all right. I'm ready. i'm ready and it was like that all the time. That sounds exhausting. It is it really really is it took i say i want to say it took a long time to get past that but truth is i'm up past that no the pd. Has these not a broken limb. You know you can't cast on it and wait six weeks and go back and get the cast off and you're good to go. No i mean people can't get past it it's it. There are stories of people who you know they had. Ptsd and to you know after a few months few years depending on situation you can't get past. It depends on the person. I think it's post traumatic growth right where you know after your trauma you become a stronger person. A bigger percent better person. I don't know if i would. I would say that people ever get over their trauma. They just they build one right in that instead of letting the letting it crush them they use it to to fuel becoming a better person in the end and the thing is it's not always a choice. I don't think this is my opinion right. I don't think it's always a choice whether you get to say like oh. I'm past the worst part of my ptsd. And i'm only headed for post traumatic growth now. I don't even think i've heard that term post traumatic growth. So i don't know. If i would be i don't know if my opinion i mean i hope that's a real thing Veteran futterman talk to me. One time so you're doing it basically you're doing to post traumatic growth thing like you like you know you start a company like you've got a great career you've got a great family you know you've got a beautiful home cars dog you've got all this stuff going for you you're doing life right you're in your a great church like you're doing all these things right and hosting this podcast you're getting so much stuff done okay and i'm like okay cool why don't it feel better yeah really i'm like okay. We'll see if this post traumatic growth. I number one. i'm happy i'm growing. I'm happy growing getting better. getting smarter. Faster stronger whatever it is. I'm happy about that part but like it is this like is post traumatic growth a destination or is it just this constantly journey. Yeah i think it's a journey in. It reminds me of what we heard in church on sunday about walking wounded. And that's what that means is like. Es your wounded mentally sometimes physically but you know ptsd is a mental disorder and your your wounded mentally but you continue to walk. Wounded is when you stop that. There's no growth And so the post traumatic growth is continuing to walk. Even though you're wounded i love. Obviously you we're in the same service. Same church service right and we were both talking about how great it was so we can ask each other. This question okay. What's it like living with me especially within. What's it like living with me. Especially when i'm experiencing some sort of triggering episode so you mentioned 2017 when you first realized that you had p. Tst then it was. You're angry and you know we tried to give you a little bit of space and like you know. Let you breathe calm down. But i think i think you have grown because now you take that space for yourself. You're like i'm going to go run or i'm going to take the dog and we're going to go hike for a few hours. I think that you know living with you. I've able to watch you grow. And and learn how coping mechanisms coping skills. And i think with. Ptsd you have to learn. Those people might not always understand them like. I'm not hiking ninety degree weather with a dog. It's not happening but three you that works that would trigger trigger something not. Ptsd that would trigger anger. It has nothing to do with. Ptsd you you. You've joined small groups that you guys run and you know for exercise in general for you just really helps you a lot of that. Is you know twenty seventeen. We had just moved to alabama and things weren't going the way we wanted them to and life was just really stressful right. And you hadn't even been diagnosed yet. sure sure. So you've you've grown okay. So i don't even ask this question. What do you like living with me. It's amazing it's amazing. I love it. Let next question experiencing some sort of triggering episode. Well i've told you this before but as a man as a husband i feel. It's my duty my job to keep you happy. You know and so a lot of times i think. Ptsd manifests itself in your life as overwhelming depression and crippling anxiety right. And there's not a single thing i can do about it so for me. It's not that living with you is better or worse. Y you know with a triggering episode. It's that my hands are tied right. And so i think it's super frustrating. Because i'm like. I see a problem my wife is in. It's not just unhappy. You know it's like she. Has this a legitimate mental diagnosis. A mental condition that. I can't do anything to fix Frankly doctors can't do anything to fix every single part of that right and that conversation we've had many times because you're like i just want to fix it and i'm like doctors i have and they can't fix it. Release yourself up that burden. You can't fix it and that is so tough as a man who says you know what i'm here to lead my family my wife and my kids and you know kind of you know take charge and we're going to go tackle life together and that is so appreciated but sometimes you just got. It's true it's true like it's nothing you can do. Well that's not true. Okay that's not true space. Give me space. You know like like you did tonight. I had that treatment today and it made me sick today. I was actually really upset stomach today. And i'm just chilling in the bedroom lennon bed phone and you just made dinner that i did that helped i did. I logged off my computer at work and went and made dinner. It was amazing. I don't know if the dinner was amazing. But it's good good good so coming up after the break tricia and i are going to ask each other one more question. We're going to ask this question. Is there anything good about living with someone who has. Ptsd and we're gonna share several takeaways with you. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things.

You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right and we are back and as promised. We're going to talk about ptsd or would keep talking about ptsd right but the question that we have for each other. Do you wanna ask it. I want me to go go ahead. Is there anything good about living with someone who has ptsd. I wrote this question. I still think it's a tough question you know i would not wish. Ptsd on anyone true. I'll start with that so with that in mind. What the good that has come out of it. It helps me to understand other people abso win. I hear about a veteran struggling with. Ptsd or a a veteran's family member or or family member or friend who is struggling with ptsd. I'm like i get it. I know how you feel. I completely understand and so for me. It's if there's anything good. It's that i can better relate to people who are going through the same frustration and anguish and honestly emotional pain when they see their loved one going through this right and i know not everyone copes. Well that's true and so this question might be difficult for some other. Some people listening you know like they're their loved when ptsd is raging alcoholic. Who's angry all the time. In what would you tell that person. That's an even to that. That in itself is even tougher. I think what. I would be telling that person is i. Can't i cannot tell you what you should be experiencing if you're living with someone with ptsd and you're like you know my spouses a raging alcoholic as a result of pd. St how do i find good in that. I can't tell you what good you should find. I i'm in no place to tell you that the only thing i can do is point you to the one that is jesus christ the principe who can give you peace in the situation and and the bible even says you know piece that passes all understanding basically piece. That doesn't make sense. So i can't tell you. This is what you should be feeling. This is what you should be experiencing. But i can recommend you to eat a formula so to speak of how to live better in that situation right and and i would add onto that to a more. You know just. I don't know. Do we say worldly. Come that. Try to under try to understand. Don't don't try to fix but like research. See how you can help your one with ptsd. Because i think not. Understanding is a part of the problem right for years i had. Ptsd and you did not. You didn't understand it in in mind would manifest in depression anxiety in the soldier new said just go exercise pushups drink water burpee strength water and i'm like you so don't get it and it was true i didn't you act totally asked you to research it to better understand it and you you did better understand it but now that you have experienced for yourself it's completely different really it. It really really is just just so different when you experience it for yourself. So i'll ask you the same question. Is there anything good about living with someone who has ptsd. I think it teaches you. How similar to what you said compassion. I mean i've always had a big heart. And i think it's because it's been broken a lot and you don't hurt anybody else because you know what that feels like you know you have more compassion. Because you know what it's like to fill abandoned or left out or or or thrown away so you're not gonna do that to anybody because if you're not a monster you're not gonna do that because you know what that feels like me and so i have probably too much compassion. My heart's honestly probably isn't too big for people. There are worse things that people not for pets. But that's a whole different. That's a big for people. Pets you can have one. That's my ocd. Am sorry that's okay. But yeah i would say me. It's compassionate and i've seen more compassionate you as well 'cause i was saying earlier when you didn't understand it you just dislike. Oh burpee and water. But now you're like. Do you want to go take a nap. You need to lay down like there's way more compassion than there was before so if if anything good can come out of such a horrific diagnosis like ptsd. I mean if you can just you know. Be patient and be kind. You can learn compassion. Sure yeah that's a really good point. So that's it for the questions right now. We honestly united had these types of conversations for year really really long time and and this is just another one of those conversations of how to how to live with someone with ptsd. What it's really like. i. I'm going to go out on a limb here. What's the worst part about living with someone with. Ptsd not knowing how they're gonna react something and so you know there's times when not recently but you know there were times i'm like oh i don't know if i want to tell him this 'cause i don't know how he's gonna react. I don't know where he's at today. You know mentally like you know. He's already got a lot on his plate. I'm kinda it's almost like an egg shells kind of thing like the. You wanna be really careful. You know so so those can be a little. And i'm sure i'm the same way i'm sure you and the kids stay away. Well i think for me and maybe for the kiddos too. I don't know but for me. It's the the worst part you know other other than the obvious of you. Know seeing my spouse going through this right but you know how it how it affects. Your frustrates me is the inability to plan. I love planning. I'm like okay. What are we going to do tomorrow. Six weeks from now five years from now and like i don't know win and might depression depression. Yeah and you're going to be like. Oh sorry man like as much as you would love to go do that. Depression is just crushed. You for that day or week or i mean there are many many times to. I'm going to say through the years that i've pushed myself. You know because. I i wanna do fun things at the family like you know. I think a lot of people feel that way. Like yeah wanna goaded disneyworld and make memories you know and you feel like that that depression creep over you and you just got to push through it as hard as it is. You just gotta you can't quit. You got to keep moving gonna walk wounded speaking of which so i know we. We referenced. The walk wounded message right. So so for those of you. Who don't know this was a message from church. The highlands with A great jura tear in this region of the country. One of the biggest in the nation as i recall got twenty plus camp twenty two twenty. Three i don't even know now. We got a bunch of campuses anyway. The the one of the pastors nikon carter. He spoke any told the story about a guy that will testament by the name of jacob who ends up wrestling with this angel and this angel as he's wrestling with jacob he he knocks jacobs jacobs hip out of socket right but jacob keeps wrestling. He's like hey. I am not going to let you go until you bless me. And so he. He eventually wins the wrestling match. The angel blesses him. And then jacob has to go meet his brother. There's whole back did this to me his brother and as he's going to meet his brother he's limping like crazy. And so even though the angels blessed and basically god putting his hand on him and saying hey like i you know i i love you. I approve of what you're doing. You know i'm blessing right now. Even though god did that he didn't heal him completely soup but jacob still had to keep moving and he had to walk wounded. Right into put in real world speak is like yeah. You can have blessings you can have all these great things in life you can have money. Houses cars land lakes pools vacation homes. But that doesn't mean you're not going to have wounds right from other people from yourself from life itself. Ptsd is usually a a life itself kind of thing so what you gotta keep walking for. Sure for sure so what's another takeaway back to. What we're saying is be patient and educate yourself. If you want to help your spouse or even yourself like okay like read just read read. How other people are doing it and that have been successful and and see how it actually manifests in your own life. Because just saying it's ptsd. I bet there some other things surrounding it that maybe you don't even know. And so educate yourself and be patient with yourself and your spouse if it's your spouse right right and somebody said this is another great takeaway. Here is give your spouse space if your spouse was the one who has the. Ptsd right give them the space they need. I will say that with the caveat if you believe. They are in danger of hurting themselves. Get the appropriate help. Absolutely this is not the your spouse said. Hey i'm gonna take my own life and then you say okay one. That's giving them space. No no no. That's not a time when you need to give them space. That's a time when there needs to be an intervention right. You know so when we're talking to give give your spouse space. it's you patricia. Saying yeah take your dog for hike. Its ninety degrees. go ahead. i'm not with you. I'll be in the pool right. Yeah right yeah gopher run go go do something to to just relax to take that. Take the edge off so to speak. Then so give your spouse space. I think is a really really great takeaway there so anything else any other takeaways. We should share with our audience today. I don't know. I think we've covered it. I mean just to walk wounded. Hold their hand while they're walking did. Oh may that's the that'll pre treat there. that's good. That is so good well patricia again. So much for coming on the show really really appreciate. I know you didn't feel great today but you muscled through it and i'm so so glad you did. I know our listeners grew be happy as well and obviously on this show. We ask a lot of questions that we do our best to answer a lot of questions and we all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves is this. Have i accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ will thank you so much for listening. Be sure to follow social media. Facebook occurred to fight again.

"Brave. Go to your phone with your theology, question or life situation. Question anywhere in the U. S of a 805 to 01534. That's 805 to 015. 34 Tom, Welcome to the Jesus Christ Show. Good morning lemonade. I'm an atheist, and I have a question. On the fairness of God. I'm a Christian and I have an answer. Okay. Okay. I'll be interested. Um You see that for the sake of discussion now, except that Christianity is the true religion and that Jesus that God is Christian. God is the true gun. Okay, So God chooses to good for whatever reason chooses to create the universe. The world the man When he creates the world, he creates a world that is Heavily influenced by unpredictability, so Let's assume that two individuals exists individually. Individual being both, um, are not Christian, but they're open minded and teachable. They hear that Billy Graham's crusade is coming to town so both and decide to go individual egos. He listens to the sermon. And he accepts Jesus Christ, according to John 14 fix and Romans 9 10 and He saved in these on his way to heaven. Individual be also wants to go to the crusade. But on his way he is hit by a meteorite. Me right in this car is destroyed These Kilgore there's no earthquake, or there's a flood or theirs. Thunderstorm or whatever. He loses control of the car, and he's killed for whatever reason by accident through two unpredictability and unpredictability that God creates himself when he created the world. No. God in his all knowing this Knows that individual be had gone to the crusade. He would accepted Jesus Christ in the same manner as individual agent. Since he didn't have a vibrant Bible is very clear On what Was required to go to heaven. Universes. I just quoted He's going to hell. How could you possibly tell me how there's any fairness in that at all? Well in your scenario APS. Absolutely not. No, no, but that's not the biblical scenario. What you've done is you've taken certain parts of scripture. And you said these are what you're going to build your argument on instead of the entirety of Scripture, and in that sense Absolutely. You're right. If that's where the story ended, Absolutely. However, Romans Romans one talks about the difference between general and special revelation and the difference between somebody who doesn't hear the specialness of the gospel, the specificity of the gospel. Get in still no God through nature through things they see and know. And that The Salvation through the blood on the cross. This is this problem really arises Not from you, but from the way Christians display Christianity and talk about Christianity, Uh and they focus in solely on the Christians walk and not understanding the fact that there are people that can receive God. Never even hearing the word Jesus. So the payment is still made. By me on the cross, but it's received by somebody. Under different circumstances that maybe has not received the gospel now. There's a difference. A major difference here if that person driving to the Billy Graham crusade Has heard the Gospel understands the Gospel knows the gospel but has rejected it up into that point. Then they're accountable for their rejection. It's not based on ignorance. There's this misnomer that Christianity is based on ignorance or knowledge. So while you're part of the in club, you know, so you get in or you're not part of the in club. You don't know so you don't get in. That's not it. It's about rejection. You have to know it to reject it. So there are all kinds of levels within that, For instance, somebody who has a form of mental retardation or lack of mental capacity that can't receive or know or have that knowledge to do the very things you quoted in John and Romans, they do not have the capacity. So that would that would be a problem. But it's not. God is not looking at technicalities. God is looking at the rejection or the acceptance of the heart. The profession that you were talking about when you're reading from Romans and it talks about four days with your heart that you believe in are justified And it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved the difference. There is the Being justified and believing doesn't even get into the mouth. Part. The mouth part is is not talking about just saying it. It's part it's about It. Taking what is in your heart and manifesting in what you do like your money is where your mouth is right. It is taking it and living it. It's not about well, gosh, it's in my heart. I'm going to say it. I'm in. People reduce that that reductionism that informal, logical fallacy of reductionism to reduce it down to those things, Mrs. The beauty and intensity of the gospel and the depth of the gospel. There is much more to it than that. That is a simplified focus of somebody receiving in their heart First. It's not just an intellectual thing. And then receiving it to a point where they actualize it. Because it means nothing If you don't actualize it. You're obviously ah, learning fella. If you look at a pencil, there's a reasoning, process and logic if you look at a pencil And you say that's a pencil. I know that that's a pencil. I know that a pencil writes. When you pick it up in your hand. You put it on to a piece of paper, the graphite transfers to the paper and you can write with it. But if you don't pick it up, it doesn't matter what you believe. It could. It could be a penguin. It could be a banana. It doesn't mean anything. If you don't apply it if you don't pick it up, that third point of logic is to apply it. If you don't apply it, it doesn't matter what it is because you're not using it. So likewise in these verses. What it's talking about is that if you know it, you see it. You believe it and you act upon it..

"Welcome to the Jesus Christ show good morning hi first I would like to thank my savior Jesus Christ publicly for the towing sacrifice for all of us then only to him were able to get to our father in heaven again one day glory to god a two part question if I may as I get older I'm forty two Albia forty three this week H. easier for me to now distinguish starting to become easier to distinguish between happiness and joy and my definition of happiness is more of like a ten thousand foot view of your life and your satisfaction of that life what is Jill is more of a momentary ceiling of bliss and overwhelming joy if you will and then the time in this time of you know chaos that we got going on we'll need more job they'll be more happiness so I want to be able to share with my friends scriptures is there any scripture where it it shows the Christ having happiness and and laughing well let's pull these apart first first of all you had happiness and joy almost backwards strangely enough joyous constant joy's constant is it is not tied to a circumstance joy is the sheer expression of being alive and that tied to to understand gets more it gets deeper and more profound with an understanding of god in a relationship with god but choice constant happiness but had that backwards my ball yet yeah no no no I think it's great that you're thinking about it but I want to clarify because it's going to help with the response as well so joyous constant happiness is momentary feeling of joy due to happening so something happens you have a birthday cake get presents whatever it might be and there's a burst of that joy that is momentary tied to happening happiness right but joy itself is constant and perpetual regardless of circumstances and should always be the underlying the motion regardless even if you're sad there is joy of being able to express sadness there is joy throughout scripture a based on understanding of the fullness so had them very well said just almost in reverse so having said that there is no there's not much that talks about the motion when it comes to my experiences in scripture there's not there's nothing you have the shortest verse in scripture is Jesus wept right everybody hears about that but the reason why that would be placed in scripture is because it was the anomaly it was the thing that was that was different because the implication is that I was always joy filled the implication is that I was always in that state of joy in scripture so really to have something stand out and say Jesus wept is to show that that was the that was the odd man out so the implication is that there was always joy there's never anything specific but there are jokes and unfortunately these jokes are lost in translation in the sense that when you hear them from the pulpit there are often done in a somber tone or the trying make them profound and there's a difference between bring being profound and being sarcastic or making a joke so you have interactions talking about the Pharisees straining out gnats but swallow a camel that's absurd add to that is that a sarcasm and that's joking when I described the Pharisees as the blind leading the blind it's it's said to be profound but it's not it's comical under the circumstances so you won't find any specific bug Jesus left here or whatever but there is a lot tying into parties in the experience of celebration that I defended when it came to the kids that were playing at my feet and the religious leaders saying hate trying to shoo them away and I defended them playing and having that opportunity in being in that joy it it put the seal of approval on happiness also the the very first miracle ties into the joy of a wedding so much so turning and water into wine which there is a lot of people the air of faith to try and make that unfermented grape juice and that's just not the truth it was wind it was an alcoholic beverage and the point throughout there is that having these times of of partying and enjoying yourself in that state was something that I protected even complaining to the ferry says Pharisees saying hate that John the Baptist came he didn't eat or drink and they said he had a demon the son of man came eating and drinking and they say he's a glutton and a drunkard a friend of tax collectors and sinners it's saying that there was there was no wind here is so somebody that came in the state of complete religiosity John the Baptist I'm very straight last laced no joking no partying no drinking nothing and they said this guy's got a demon he's eaten locus out in the wilderness and then I came with frivolity eating joining drinking a partying for lack of a better term and they said look this guy's a glutton and a drunkard so what that implies that you eat it enjoyment and up that partying and and all of those things together so there's not a specific that says only in Jesus laughed but there are things where there were times of camaraderie that you can tell in the context of of connecting with the disciples that wasn't just you know preaching like movies or even scripture piece me old you don't see those things or feel those moments but the reality is scripture is not it is not a depiction of my life from beginning middle and end it is highlights that are based on ministry so it's focusing on the ministerial parts of my life that's why people say others the eighteen lost years they're not they're not silent they're just not necessary to the story it only talks about birth because that's important right and then it talks about the beginning of ministry everything else was the carpentry shop not important I guess I guess it's just when I'm when I'm when I'm studying the scriptures I'm always in such a non comical mind frame that I could miss those but yeah those everybody does different examples that you gave actually are just very subtle like you said yeah they're not it's it's it's it is not important to say well Jesus laughed here or Jesus left there what important is the is the ministry's going on the relationship but there are implications like gates implied in certain things that there was obviously that bonding enjoy with the twelve and the connection there there there there is that people can afford so really the core of my question to myself really the answer is just put yourself in the position that you're in constant joy and happiness will just come and go yes happiness exactly is fleeting and it will come and go due to circumstances but joy is based it's it it's not it surpasses understanding because it's not it's not tied to something most people hi I think the joy and happiness comes from things and at the end but that's you know that's not the the that's not what scripture is about scripture separates the things and finds life itself is the joy and happiness are you the is circumstantial and to understand those things so the implication in scripture is if it points out when I wept that when I wasn't weeping I was in the state of joy that's basically what it comes down to.

"Lisa. Welcome to the Jesus Christ show. Thank you. My question is should Christians tattoo their bodies. Well, should they or can they should they according to the scriptures? Should they should they is going to be an individual choice because there's nothing in the bible. It says they cannot there is Leviticus nineteen goes through some religious laws that some people get confused about that says in verse twenty eight you shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourself. I am the Lord the verse. There is actually talking about a practice. At a matter of fact, most of these are talking about a practice that the pagans were doing that our Jewish brothers and sisters didn't want to be associated with and wanted us to look as different as possible from them. And this would fall into the same. Category. Now, people have problems with it would have problems with other parts of it two. Because just above. It says you shall not round off the side growth of your head nor harm the edges of your beard. So if you shaved you'd be falling into the same category of tattoos. Then also the word used for cut would be the same at us for Pierce. So any woman that pierces our ears problem? So any man that shaves or any woman that pierces your ears would have problem, not just the tattooing? So really what it speaking about tattooing here. It's not it's it's speaking about a process that was done to the dead or for the dead by pagans, and that should not be brought to pass by Christians. But having a tattoo for Christian is not inherently wrong. It depends on the content, of course. But it's not inherently wrong for a Christian to have tattoo. All right. Thank you. You're welcome. How come I got the impression that maybe that's not the answer? She was looking for. Sometimes you just pick up on subtleties. Tiny little subtleties kind of what I do here. But the bible is filled with many things and the best the best advice. I can give you is to see that the entirety of the bible and understand that there's a difference between prescription and description. These are two very important principles. I want you to hear I want. You to understand the difference between difference between prescriptive language in descriptive language. Descriptive language is Jesus woke walked up a hill. Now, if I walked up hill, I walked up a hill. There's nothing really to be done describing.

"Frank, welcome to the Jesus Christ show. Yeah. Hello. First of all, thank you very much for taking my call. I'm grateful for you. And I'm really grateful for the program that you have it's been an inspiration for me multiple times. Oh, that's kinda. I'm happy to be here. Thank you. Well. Problems is very similar probably too. You know, millions of dollars to struggling. I've had several career challenges over the last ten years and. A divorce? Smother small issues did everyday stuff that people go through. But one of the scary things for me. And I've been a Christian for a long time since eighty four I think it was and. I believe in the power of prayer and unbelievable all things are possible through Jesus. But last few years, I've really struggled to find things that will help restore some joy and happiness in my life. I have not really honestly felt happy. Anything for a long time. And I'm a little scared about that. And. I try to do things that that I know. That I enjoy I love to play guitar. I love to go for walks and local parks, pray friends and family and going to church and things like that. But. I just it's hard to get out of bed in the morning. That sounds like a. I to say sometimes. I need. I need a stronger source told me get through and I'm wondering if you can help. Well, of course, there's many different aspects to this in the broad sense scripture is very clear that joy and happiness are two different things. So think of happiness as a momentary feeling of joy due to a happening. So if you play guitar for a little while if you go, and you do something walk in the park, whatever it might be you might get a tiny bit of joy based on that happening, and that becomes happiness. It's really, it's fleeting happiness. That's why people continue to seek it. Because it's not something that. Exists in its entirety throughout your person. But joy is James one two says count. It all joy, my brothers. When you meet trials of various kinds there. And that's a reoccurring message throughout scripture. And to be in that state of joy. Joy is something you should be in. It has nothing to do with circumstances. It's you're in the state of joy because you're breathing. That's the mere existence. Should put you in that state of joy doesn't mean you're going to be jumping up and kicking your heels all the right? But if you're not going to find it there in the mere fact that you can pull air and experienced this gift of life. There's nothing there's no thing you're going to do it's ever going to make that more wonderful having having said that there the body is made up of many things chemicals and balances and all of those things, and if there is an imbalance. There's nothing wrong with going to see a doctor to see if there's something that needs to be put back in balance, and that's outside of the scope of this program, we focused on the moral issues, not medical, but I as Christians. There's no reason why there's this weird thing when it comes to ailments when it comes to physical ailments, like a broken bone or something that people can see. And it's very tangible. They have no problem. It's very simple. It's like, well, why would you walk around with a broken bone? But when it comes to mental ailments that even at term alone makes people nervous because it sounds like they're unhinged or they're gonna go nuts and run around in a circle and they're going to cause problems. But there's many levels of concern and things that can need focus with the brain. And the way it works. So. No, no, please. There's an underlying problem that I'm struggling with here. And I'm sorta hesitated to bring up please do. About ten years ago. I left a decent job. And because I felt in my heart, many my mind and after several things that. By all accounts shouldn't have happened. Whether it was good luck or timing on the right thing, and the right people all signs pointed to the fact that I need to be Ostro than I need to be a schoolteacher into my family to my blood. I love being there. Still I'm at my best buy made some very large sacrifices because I felt that that dog truly had a plan for me to to be a leader to be example to be a shining light to young people. And so I made a lot of sacrifices, and it's not my main. My main complaint is. I believe God gave me that fire that. Cassian a desire to be in a classroom to be with young people. And and. To go through the teaching process. I love so much and I made a lot of sacrifices to get there to make that happen. And it didn't happen for reasons control. And I'm I'm resentful and angry, I'm frustrated, you know, I remember one of the stories from the bible where God said, you know, give me your best, and you know, their stories about making sacrifices sacrificing their their their their best animal or possession and giving her best to God. And I did that. And I'm just frustrated and I'm wondering why would he give me this passion and desire to? Do that. And make me feel like that's where I should go. And then. It's never going to happen. I'm struggling with that for sure. So what do you mean? It's never going to happen. For tickets. It back for a second. In public schools. Twelve you have anything more than the minimum requirements, for example. Anything above a bachelor's degree? So if you have a master's degree or a PHD the public school districts usually have an additional stipend or a salary bump for you. Okay. Well, the past ever since two thousand six seven especially in California. About the budget problems here. So schools will not hire anybody with with already has a masters degree or ph D because they don't wanna pay the extra money. In addition to that public schools are notorious for not hiring anybody over certain age. It's just that's just the way it is. What are they admit it or not? It's just not gonna happen. I mean, I I had a glowing resume for to be a schoolteacher to be education. And I couldn't get the time of day with mock maker. I've been trying for seven years and every year. I ain't get further and further away from now. Now being in that loop and. Chance. Next year or so boy, get out get out the cancer and the wheelchair. My goodness. Fifty now. Fifties. The new forty. I keep telling me. Frank. I really want to kind of expand this a little bit. First of all being attentive to God is an amazing thing. And something that many people don't do their you're not attentive. However, I do find a pattern in those that are attentive. It's still wrestle with their their deep humanness against their spirit. So what happens is on occasion? God will will call or put, you know, this burning inside you, and you will feel the spiritual calling of that. And inevitably you will humanize it. You'll throw all the human things on top of it. Now the assumption is that God wanted you to do this. Because of x y and z, and you don't know that. And you don't know what's what's being taught here and. The disappointment than as we went down another path earlier about the possibility of chemical things are or what have you? I think that's always reasonable thing to look at. But the the other is expectation disappointment comes from expectation. So you finding that ditch where you're sitting you're going. This is not what I wanted is. Because you expected something God never said, this is what's going to happen ABCD and going in. They're going down the entire explanation of what's going to take place. He said seek this. Now if God says seep this your assumption. You're the one plugging in all the pieces while 'cause I'm supposed to teach children. I'm supposed to do this. I'm supposed to do that. And that's not necessarily true. He may just want to teach you something in that process about yourself. And and people forget that they get lost in this path that they've created in their head because God says go forward, and you say, okay, go forward, there's a mountain forward. He wants me to climb the mountain any wants me to buy all this gear. And he wants me to do that. No. I said go forward. That's what I said. And you said climb the mountain and all these things. So sometimes you have to strip down. To the to the very simplicity of the message or the calling rather than adding all the EU added all the furniture to it. God says here's a room, and you said, okay. Well, I'm going to put drapes, and we can do this. And and sometimes you build expectations in that as to what might happen. And it's going to be some glorious thing God has called many people to the mundane, and and it has limitations or walls and not okay. Get to the top of the mountain. Sometimes he just says go to the mountain, and you you have to.

And if you're so interested, we'd love to have you. And it's a good resource for you that enjoyed the show and want more of it. That's the way to do it. Carol. Welcome to the Jesus Christ show. I love your show. Can you hear me? Okay. I sure can my dear. Thank you so much. I wanna see a logical. I was raised in the Methodist church, and then I went to college I became an atheist, and I was an atheist for most of my adult life, and I am gradually trying to find my way back to cry. Now, the theological question is first of all it became obvious to me that the world has really been in a battle. A spiritual warfare. The Andrew vanity van and all of the horrible stuff going on. I don't understand how how God could lose to the angels bat angels. If God is all powerful. Okay. Well, let's look at a couple of things first of all the world's not getting worse. The world is horrible as it's ever been. And there has been problems with the world since day one. So there's no that everyone thinks that their generation is the worst experience, but that's because as people get older things change, and whenever things change people thinks think the world is coming to an end. So there are horrible things are just are. But yeah, you can go throughout the history of mankind. Entrust me, there were horrible things going on. You will hear? People say gosh, you know, the fifties was such a great time mid mid last century was just a great time. And then you talk to people of color and women, and they go. Well, it wasn't that. Great. So it depends. Who you ask in the context you ask that's the first thing. Secondly, spiritual warfare is not a battle in a God against the devil. And there's that imagery, I think that Hollywood is has perpetuated that as well because you need a protagonist and antagonist and the story. And so the assumption is that God is in battle with the devil at all times. That's not the case what what really is going on by way of scripture in the description about spiritual warfare is that God has allowed the devil to have domain over the earth because people have free will and that choice that people have. Only has value because people can choose to do wrong, for instance, Carol if we look at. A simple list of things words that are associated with good things. Good attributes nobility honesty. Bravery. Courage. These types of things, right? The minute. You say them you have to understand that the flip side of them is what makes them have value. So bravery only has value. If there's adversity honesty, only has value because people don't have to be honest. They can lie. So so with those battles going on in this place earth, and in this world, you're going to have to things tugging on the individual. You're going to have God. And those things that are are good. Tugging. And then you're going to have the devil and demons tugging and motivating and trying to tempt on the other side, that's the spiritual battle it's not God per se battling with the devil and going. I can't win. He's so strong. It's mankind. It's God battling for man battle a man for man who is tempted by evil. The second question is how do you know? You're saved our pray throughout the day. And I don't know that I've been saved. Well, as far as salvation is concerned. Scripture makes it clear as to to what needs to be done. It says simply this is in Romans ten nine and ten if you confess with your mouth, the Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. You will be saved. Okay. For with the heart one believes in his justified and with the mouth one confesses and is saved there. There's no magic potion or anything like that. It is a every day. It is a realization of those things doesn't mean you won't have doubt or frustrations with the church of the people in it or any of those things or question or be frustrated with things that you see taking place in. Where's god? That's not what it means. Awesome. Thank you so much. You're welcome. May I ask you a question? Yes. You said that for a good chunk of your adult life. You were atheist. Yes.

Good looking out there Pacific Ocean on a beautiful day here in your kingdom. It's really sweet. How can I help you just I'm looking here in Matthew? And I I I'm in the scriptures daily, you know, very many, I would say hours daily, and I learned through your word, and and the Old Testament how to really. In the imagination the image to really to be with you into just how everything came about in filling in you. And just it's just such an amazing thing the scriptures, and how they live in our alive, and it just something in Matthew eleven, and it's I I'm sure you've been asked this before where it starts with John's being Jesus tribute to John in eleven and it talks about a man dressed in soft clothing. Behold. Those who were sought clothing and. Anyway, it goes on down to fourteen and it says, and if you care to accept it. He himself is alisha now, this is after he states that the kingdom suffers violence in the prophet of the law prophesied until John, and then if you care to accept that he himself is alisha, and I'm just wondering how much if I've missed up over the years, if he talks this is in fact, reincarnation, I know I don't I don't see it in very many other scriptures were the physical body. You know is is again in flesh. But always this really a spirit thing where you know, the the spirit of Elijah comes through John. I know that spirit when not a long time before you manifested into your clash, so I'm just curious about okay. A couple of things I the full verse that you're referring to us, and if you care to accept it. He himself is Elijah who was to come or is to come depend on your translation. But so that's a qualifier that references that now if. Cross reference that with Luke one seventeen in Luke one seventeen there's a bit of a a clarification that is important here. To kind of interpret this verse. So one seventeen read you real quick. Okay. So in one seventeen you read this, and it is he who will go as a forerunner before him in spirit and power of Elijah, turn the hearts of the fathers. So the comparison there is not about the physical. But about the spiritual and the message and the prophecy that was coming both with Elijah and with John the Baptist. Now. Here's here's the clincher that it's not reincarnation. What do you know about Elijah? Yeah. He was. Well, let's see. He did he die. No. He didn't. Exactly. So there is no reincarnation reincarnation means Rian fleshed or so they're the flesh is not gone, right? So there's no way to have reincarnation plus scripture has over and over again, it makes claims that there isn't any reincarnation. It says it's appointed for man to die once and then the judgment and Hebrews by. And then in Corinthians Paul says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. So there's no place you'll estimate that would have been I I'm sure there would have been more examples of that. And and it, and it really there's not, and and I knew deep down that the the whole I mean, I didn't want it to be or you know, I was hoping I just because I already think I really knew that it was the spirit. That's exactly the way you should study scripture. Yes, should ask those questions. It's not about you know, like you said not hoping for an outcome or trying to squeeze an outcome in there. You're just letting it breathe and speak naturally. And in that case, it's very easy to look at that. And think that it is at least leaning towards reincarnation. But once you start letting it unfold a little bit and explain itself you start to see that there. There's no real room for reincarnation there at all, Michael. But a great question. I love the fact that you're thinking through those things and processing because a lot of people just kind of stare at scripture, and when you're actually studying it and wanting to poke at it, and look and see see what it has to say. I think it's a very powerful thing. So good for you for investigating. Scripture course, says detest all things and I love that. You're testing those things. Steve welcome to the Jesus Christ show. One in Jesus. Hi, steve. How can I help you? Yeah. I rely situation that I have been talking to John about. And I don't know what to do. I'm sometimes I'm been answer and other times. I don't. Okay. Dating this girl for over a year. Now and problems were we talked, and we don't talk, and you know, we just seen each others. You can go spend some time together. And she told me she loved me. And I felt that I loved her and. I didn't put me in the place to be with her in the beginning. And now, we're not really talking very much more. She doesn't back to. I don't know what to do. I mean, I Don and asked him, you know. Hey. Tell me the truth that she's not getting my message is all the time. You know, I'm trying to get a hold of her during the day when I'm on my break. And trying to talk to you. But I never hear nothing back from her. Okay. I don't know what to do. Well, let's let's strip the emotion from it. Look at this a little more reasonably. You go to the grocery shortish grocery store to shop. Right. Yes. Okay. So you walk up, and you go to check out at the counter and you're in line. And the checker puts the little sign says this lane closed. What do you do? Go to another line, exactly. If she's put out a sign of sorts where she is non-communicative with you. And has apparently no desire people seek out what they want and avoid what they don't want very basic. If she's avoiding you or not connecting with you. Then you need to move on. I know it stinks because you have investments of emotion and all those things, but that's the reality. Of the situation. And if if there's a misunderstanding trust me, she will seek you out. But it sounds like there's some issues with the relationship to begin with. That's not how normal relationships work, by the way. Yes, I I understand that. And I've I've learned over my past, you know, other relationships, you know. And I'm just trying to figure out and try to think, you know, should I should I just why wouldn't you move on? What what are you hoping to gain by lingering? I don't know. That's what I been able to figure out then move on. There's there's. There is this weird kind of emotional loitering that takes place in some relationships when everything every sign every emotion everything about the relationship says to move on people tend to do this kind of emotional loitering where they just they've got nothing else going on. But the thing about relationships is you won't ever have something else going on if you loiter emotionally in another relationship. So there's nothing they're what you're describing is, you know, the relation that relationship that people have with tech support for their computer, not emotional. Real deep connection with somebody. You have somebody who's avoiding you by the sounds of things. And if somebody wants to get a hold of you, they'll get a hold of you. It's not about oil and get your text or this or that. That's ridiculous. Who's going to would that stop you? You didn't hear from somebody? And you really wanted to be connected with them. You know, look at you. You're not hearing from from her. No, you're still you're you're still trying to connect with her. You're going to the to the degree of calling radio program to talk about it. That's because you care if she cared. She'd be doing that. But she doesn't seem to care or there's something in her life that is distracting her that is more important at this point. And that's not your problem. Your issue is you and to be you know, I hate to use the corny term. But to be the best you you can be and to focus on yourself getting yourself to a place of health. So that you can be ready for somebody who comes into your life. Who's ready to be there with you not somebody who's looking for excuses? Not to be with you. That doesn't make sense, nor does it help you at all. So I would cut ties I would cut ties, and I would go on your merry way. And if there's some if there's a there there it'll show up again in its in its own time, don't try and force it or or poke at it. Go do your thing. All right. No, something out Jesus. I I hope so I know I know it's not fun to hear. But I care about you. I want you to be healthy, and you have to sometimes walk away from things. And and really all the signs are there. I mean, people talk about well, Lord, I wanna hear prayer. I wanna hear answer to my prayer. But you are you you just don't like the answer. So worry about yourself. And do things that you enjoy and you will come across people that enjoy those things to that. You'll have similarities with and that's how you connect and find somebody that you you're going to mesh with. But if somebody is kind of that off and on it's not worth it. Steve it is it's a waste of your time. And the worst part of it, Steve the very worst part of it is that every time you invest in somebody. That's not good for you. Or is not connecting with you or sharing insights, and hopes and desires with you. You're keeping yourself from being with somebody that can do that very thing. So, you know, there's these you see these parents sometimes who aren't honest with their children, and let's say their child really stinks at baseball. And they keep pretending like their child. Doesn't stink baseball. That's not helping anyone because maybe the child might be really good at soccer or football or what or arts. In the arts or something else. And if you keep if you force people to do things, you don't allow them to naturally find the thing that they're good at. So if you try and stave you force yourself to try and stay in a bad relationship or one that is virtually non-existent, then you're not available for a good one. And that's the worst part of that you have to get over that hump. And know that you're you're a value that you have value to to give someone and connect with someone and trust that.

"Berry. Welcome to the Jesus Christ show. I. A question about the conservative bible project run by Phyllis schlafly, son on our I only heard about this talked about a secular lead roles in people weren't Christians. But they when I got on the website said that the, you know, the your name the years, we are corrupted not because of lack of translational stuff. But because they have socialist influences in them, and it to me seems to be pretty outrageous. Even though I don't read those translations. What would you have to say about it? Well, as far as the conservative bible project goes. I'm always leery of any group that looks is looking at scripture from a particular bent. Liberal conservative black white any group that looks at the bible from a particular. Bent can be a problem when it comes to translation. The thing that I find interesting about the conservative bible project is that it's not the truth bible project. It's not about saying we want the best translation possible, and those do exist. The ISV is a new translation that you can find out. I think it's v dot org, but you can see the the processes they are not so necessary at this point. But the beginning processes of scripture being translated and the desire was to to get the the the best translation possible, not the most conservative translation or the most liberal translation. So I'm I'm bothered by that because it should be the most godly accurate translation and for for years. You've heard the arguments against liberal bias in scripture and people saying, oh, you're you're emasculating it by having the unisex terms or anything that's gender inclusive and all these things really. It's about the content is the content still there are you hearing the importance of it. It can be bothersome that people say, oh, well, it says mankind here, and that's a fence. You know, the you understand the context of what's being said. So to try in a mutate or forced into scripture, something you feel more comfortable with is not the way to go. What to scripture actually, say? Now, there's a better scholars and people that are more efficient and translating now than ever before. And that should be utilized in new translations should come out. And what a lot of people don't tell you what Lund people don't know about scriptures. They're often like, you know software and they have newer versions. But like the for instance, will say it's the, but you don't know this two point, oh or three point zero or four point zero because when they change it. They don't necessarily let you know this happens with a lot of translations there's changes or modifications as they get better or they correct things and. This the attitude though, that it's got to be a conservative bent or liberal bent is missing completely missing the point. Are there? Those that read into it liberally. Yes, are those that read into it conservatively? Yes. And it's always gonna be that case. But look for the truth of the scripture in the best translation, I don't look for the political version. I that seems backwards. The Jesus Christ show will return in a moment to.

"Brenda. Welcome to the Jesus Christ show. How about Jesus hybrid? I would like to hear the ten commandments. Sure. The deck log that is the big fancy word for the ten commandments. Now, the ten commandments are they can be found in a couple of places in scripture, but primarily when people reference or quote them they're looking at exodus twenty versus two through seventeen. So that's what we'll look at today. Is there a particular reason you want to hear the ten commandments? I just know. Were you you just want to hear them? Okay. Well, they're broken down differently. Depending on the group the Jewish breakdown of the ten the Anglican orthodox Catholic Lutheran they tend to break them off differently. So I'm just going to go down them for you. So that you can hear them you shall have. No other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol you shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God. Don't take God's name in vain. Remember, the Sabbath and keep it. Holy honor, your father and mother you shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, you shall not cover covet anything that belongs to your neighbor. So depending on on how you break them up. Some people will combine some of those or separate other parts of them and make them into the ten. So sometimes you you might read if you read the ten commandments and a Catholic bible, it would be different from other Christian bibles. So those types of things can get mixed up. But really it's not about the labeling them as ten because that's not how it it's not how it comes out. I know a lot of you get caught up in scripture now, and you see the chapters in verses and you say, oh, well, they labeled it differently, but really there. There was no chapter and verse not in that context. Not in the same way in the same sense. It was more about getting the entirety of scripture out and the purpose of scripture. So the truth is, regardless of how you label them one through ten or if you don't label them one through ten that the importance lies and not having any other gods before God, not having any idols. Honoring your father and mother, not murdering not committing adultery. These things are what's important. The Jesus Christ show will return in a moment to be a part of the show.
