"So I'm gonna call them Mormons until the day I die. They are Mormons. And May it take on a negative connotation. That was my man. All right. Well, I have this a good story here. It's a positive news. Yay. That's the freedom from religion foundation. Yes. They do the good work of threatening lawsuits. I love it. In this country. On the grounds of separation of church and state. That's kind of like their big thing. Yeah, they're needed. And so they get crosses removed from public grounds, ten commandments, things, move from public grounds, and out of that room. That kind of stuff. Well, there was a school district up in Michigan. By the name of P wamo westphalia. Okay. Yeah, community schools. Where they've gotten a little wax. Uh oh. On their separation of church and state. Apparently there was a in one of the classrooms, the teacher had a WW JD paper weight. So that's what would Jesus do everybody in case you don't know. And there was a cross made out of paper assuming in the hall somewhere with a Bible quote from John 1513. I didn't look it up. Anybody's curious. I don't know what it is. But there was a Bible quote, teachers would sometimes talk about their own religious beliefs in the classroom. So uncomfortable. And so the prefer for them a strongly worded letter and the school district which is like, let's get this cleaned up. Nice. They didn't. It doesn't sound like they fought, superintendent of schools was like, yeah, we don't need those things. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Maybe not a thanks for bringing it to our attention, but more like where we are not paying for this. Okay, I'm not gonna let us get caught up just to try to make a stink about something that we probably lose. Right. And the ugly paper mache cross with its stupid quote. Apparently he's planning on he's promised to tour the school grounds. Oh, good. And look for anything that might be offending. They've given out new guidance to the teachers. That's wonderful. And everybody, this is important to remember out there. Like the is there, and they will do this. And I can't remember if Dan ever reported I think he was talking about reporting there's a merry statue in a public park. Just a few blocks from here actually. Right. And it's like, it's like abstract. Yeah, it's like that metal red. And it's more like if you look at it, you're not gonna just be like, oh, virgin Mary, but then it says our lady of Guadalupe is like the name of the piece. Yeah. And so they'll do it. They will write a letter. They will get it taken care of. I love that. And, you know, I honestly don't think there's any harmless religious iconography on public ground. I know sometimes it kind of feels a little weird. You know, like with that one because it's like right here, it's in a very, you know, Hispanic neighborhood. Right. Very Catholic area of town. It does make me feel like it's cultural. And do we want to pick on? And it's not picking on. It's just it's inappropriate. It needs to be removed and get it out of there. And whatever happened. I don't know. We should drive past it. Maybe we need to go on a field trip. Follow up. Yeah. Yeah, no, we totally should. You can talk about it next week. No promises. Okay, I'm going, I'm excited. I saved the best for last. I thought this is the kinky article. All right. Well let's actually really, it's not kinky, but it's like it's the opposite of kinky, but it's hilarious to me. And it's, but it's also hilarious. I'm very sad. So there's a noted theologian. I said, right? I was just, I was just telling prank. When you've just read things growing up and didn't like talk to actual people and just read things and book you books, you often pronounce words wrong. Anyway, theologian. And Bible teacher and his name is John piper, and I guess he has a podcast and there's a lot of people that listen to him. Okay, so he has a bunch of people right in letters kind of like dear Abby. And they often have similar questions. And apparently this week, he had a lot of people really want to know what was okay in the bedroom. So this is on a lot of people's minds. So here's what one poor woman wrote in. She said, my husband likes to use role playing in the bedroom and various levels of bondage and dominance. Oh. He wants me to say things like I'm your slave. And he wants me to wear certain colors around my neck. I like this. I'm cool with this. Then she goes on to say, but he's a very nice person outside of the bedroom. Oh no. He only asks me if I can play out the fantasy in bed. What should I do? And then another listener says that a counselor that he had had told them that it was okay to do role playing in the bedroom and the marriage bed with mutual consent. And I was like, I love that they're seeking this advice from a therapist that seems pretty smart. Yeah, mutual concern. That's totally what it's all about. Yeah, yeah, totally. So, well, piper doesn't think so. Uh oh. No. He's like because there's somebody else who doesn't consent. God. Exactly. And so he's like, I'm sorry, but fantasized sin and sin, no matter how many people agree on it. And he's like, play acted sin is sin and Jesus wouldn't want this. He said in Matthew, 5 27 through 29. That you can't commit adultery and you can't even fantasize it about it or look lustfully at a woman. So it's not okay, even between adults. Wow. Jesus. Stick in the mud. Right? These poor people who are getting advice from this man. He said, Jesus standard of holiness is not merely a standard of bodily deeds, but also of mental delights. Although it doesn't seem like there's very many mental delights in this. It's just very sad to me. And then it goes on to say that not only does God not want you to imagine these things during the day, but if he makes you have naughty dreams at night, that's a warning to you. Oh. It's a warning to humble your pride and stay out of.

"The necessity of being filled with the holy ghost goes so far beyond the new birth experience. So far beyond salvation. Salvation isn't the end of the road salvations. Only the beginning of the journey. It's the beginning of our walk with god allowing the spirit to work through us is what's going to allow us to bear the spiritual fruits and it's not always easy in fact it's oftentimes struggle because we're in a constant state of internal battle between the flesh and the spirit paul ryton galicians five seventeen four the flesh lusts against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh and these are contrary to one another so that you do not do the things that you wish you ever screwed up and done something that you look at after the fact and say. I can't believe i did that even after being born again. I know it's happened to me. I know it's happened to me because after we come out of the water in baptism after we're filled with god's spirit our problems don't all of a sudden go away. The desires of the flesh. Don't all of a sudden go away. I hate to tell you this but the flesh is going to be something that we're battling until these physical bodies that we inhabit return to the dust from which they came. It's gonna be a struggle and you know what the fact that it is. A struggle is actually a good thing the fact that we feel a struggle because john piper said this he said a christian is not a person who experiences no bad desires. A christian is a person who is at war with those desires by the power of the spirit even though we long for the day when our flesh will be utterly defunct and only pure and loving desires will fill our hearts yet. There are something worse than the war. Within between flesh and spirit namely no war because the flesh controls the citadel and all the outposts the fact that you're struggling the fact that you're dealing with that struggle means you haven't given up made you haven't just given in to the desires of the flesh the fact that you feel that internal conflict means that you're still fighting the good fight and don't give in. Don't ever give into the flesh. Don't grow discouraged. It's not easy it's never gonna be easy. The challenges we face are many. And we're going to have them for the rest of our lives but if we yield to the spirit if we submit to the leading of god's spirit then overtime what will happen. Is those fruits that we bear are going to look more and more like spiritual fruit and less and less like the works of the flesh. And aren't you happy for that. Jesus.

"This is what we have. It's about strategy. It's about controlling the calendar. It's about controlling what's coming up and the the what What's coming from committee to vote on etcetera. And that's why these you know these individuals that have been going is never trump. And I was for Rick Perry and then Ted Cruz in the primary. And there have been some Republican grifters out there who haven't advantage to try to stand on my shoulders to continue to characterize me falsely. And I checked these people publicly and privately, and they're scared out of their minds to try to do this stuff with me again. Because when I respond, I do so heavily. You just don't always see it publicly, but These individuals who have always been in this position of never supporting anything the administration does, even when it's been moving the embassy even when it's been reducing, although we could cut it more the taxpayer dollars that go towards Planned Parenthood when it comes to speaking out against the assault, weapons ban and things of this nature. I mean, I could sit here. Go on. There's been a lot of stuff done. But they can't even give credit where credit's due to that end. If these people think that they're going to come in in the vacuum of, say, Trump loses tomorrow, and you do have to. I thinkit's healthy to familiarize yourselves with the potentials from each outcome. But if he loses tomorrow, these people think that they're gonna walk in on Wednesday and be the new moral authority and ethical authority of the Republican Party and of the entire right. After they sat on their butts on the periphery, earning money from them for themselves from their stupid little groups that they created all the ads that they make for Marxists and all the other grifting that they've been doing is a part of this new cottage industry, and then they think they're going to come in and Lord it over everyone else. It's not gonna happen. And this, so that's when when John Piper acts like this is a neglected thing I'm like, Are you even paying attention to what's happening? Because if you're going to write something from a spiritually angle, and you're going to get into politics, and this goes toe every pastor out there If you're going to talk about politics from the pulpit, you better know delay the land politically before you mislead people spiritually. This. He sets up this thing where he gets into well, somebody has the you know, he's he has all of these bad traits. And but it's weird, because when he's contrasting Trump and Biden it's like only one of them is I mean, we are all compromised. I mean, we're all sinners. But it's just weird because it just doesn't seem that you know, you want to talk about something that's neglected. It seems like Piper's neglecting the fact that I don't know what What do you think is worse, having a bad tweet or forcing people through theft by taxation to give their money to murdering babies? You just You know, you tell me what you think is worse and actually fighting for advocating for the expansion of this Everything always comes back to how his trump send. But no one ever talks about. Well, how has everybody done so? And how is this? Let's look through the perspective of Scripture and look at how this has always been biblically historically. It's not And and what does the imperfection afford? Well, it affords. Showcasing that it's not the person it's the God. It's gone period. That's what Piper seems to miss. In this. I mean, he, uh I just I thought it was a species piece. It was a really good response over it. Christian Post by Wayne grew them and I was really nervous the weekend And he says, he says that he was summarizing Piper's argument. And he says the personal sense of a leader could be as harmful to persons in donations is morally evil laws and and he gets into his summarizes what Piper's his his His editorial was about And he says, Because Piper had written, I remain baffled that so many Christians consider the sins of unrepentant sexual immorality and unrepentant boastfulness and unrepentant vulgarity and unrepentant Ah, you know, toxicity. And he says, these air deadline, he continues. You know these heir sins and and the editorial Christian posters. Piper's argument fails to Rio to recognize that people can decide not to imitate the sense of a leader. But they cannot do that. With laws. Laws require obedience, and millions of people have seen and decided. Maybe not. There's character flaws in anyone and everybody. But They like. Not being subjected to being forced to sin through law. That is the difference. We could do an entire three hours show on this. And I'm in a lengthy CE two pieces that are going to go out this afternoon in a newsletter because there's another piece that has discussed it, too. He really God. He really? It's this idea somehow that You can't be a true practitioner of your faith and cast your vote the way you are. Is a false vote that is you trying to spiritually blackmail you into obedience of false obedience and obedience. That is ungodly because that's what are you supposed, Tio either make it easier for a candidate who supports legalized sin. Or Vote for the candidate who not only endorses, but actively defends legalized sin, which is a lot different than it somebody's tweets or somebody's no hot mic behavior that was from like, 10 years ago. We could spend a lot of time on this, but I wanted to bring your attention to it. I'll send it out newsletters well coming up. Another. There's apparently another Biden laptop.

"What's happening now? The infection infection of what? Well, according to John Piper, it's infection of immorality, boastfulness, vulgarity and factious nous. Let me ask. You are astute audience has the boastfulness has the vulgarity has the imagined sexual immorality of the current president infected our culture? No, it's true. Trump is boastful. It is true that he has been vulgar. And yet the sexual immorality is yet to be determined by anyone has just thrown out by John Piper. It is and was a part of our president's past. That is true. The question is, Is it a part of his present? No, I don't see a rise in boastfulness and vulgarity or immorality. That's because of the president. The rise in those sins is because of human sin and human desire. But according to John Piper, it's everywhere and all began with one person, and apparently it all began five years ago. That's when the president was a candidate for president. No. If I was asked about this by the author, I would say, Let me help you, Dr Piper. I would tell him the downward slant that America has been experiencing began many years ago. You could even say decades ago. Let me give you a small example. Just a small example in my own lifetime. Now this is where we come to story time. Ooh! Listen to our broadcast, remembers former President Bill Clinton. Let me give you a fact. That may surprise you. Many already know that Clinton was immersed an extra marital affairs before and during his presidency. He was impeached on the very fact that he lied to Congress about that reality. What people may not know is that the attitude of sexual activity among teenagers during the 19 nineties, especially in the area of oral sex had changed drastically. During Clinton's presidency, sexual activity, especially oral sex, became more accepted and was not considered a sexual act. This observation actually had a name. It had a name. It was called the Clinton Lewinsky effect, And as a result, sexual activity among teenagers skyrocketed as a direct result of the Clinton Lewinsky effect. So, yes, there can be a parent all between the behavior of a president and how it can affect the people. But for some strange reason, John Piper seems to believe that the fall of our nation appears to be happening now. Not then, but now, and it's reaching its height with our current president. But I have to ask what moral depravity in our nation today has the president's name on it. I gave an example the previous president who actually has a title for a sin. What about our current president? What immoral behaviour of any kind is the current president have as an influence among its citizens in an overwhelming sense Now, please note I'm only asking this Because John Piper said the last five years beer vivid witness to this infection at almost every level of society. Sadly, there's no answer to that question. The truth is, which you're probably seeing in my assessment of his article is the fact that John Piper doesn't give specifics. Jesus said the beginning, John Piper also deals with subject of abortion in his article in relation to his reason to not vote. Here's what he says. Where does the wickedness a defending child killing come from. It comes from hearts of self absorbed arrogance and boasting it comes from hearts that air in subordinate to God. In other words, it comes from the very character that so many Christian leaders are treating as comparatively Innocuous because they think Roe and scotus and Planned parenthood arm or pivotal, more decisive battle grounds. Well, Dr Piper. That's because they are more decisive battle grounds. What Piper doesn't even consider is that the very evil that he talks about in this paragraph is manifested. From a culture that no longer believes in trend. Cendant Truth and Planned Parenthood and the culture that supports it. Exhibit the very self absorbed arrogance and boasting. That is directly related to the attitude that Piper things Christians look at as not important. Nothing. And I mean nothing could be further from the truth and he knows it. And May I add in regard to this whole article? No Christian accepts or brushes away the sin of a president or a leader. We don't ignore it. And yet he believes that we do The article continues. I think Roe is an evil decision. I think Planned Parenthood is a code name for baby killing, and historically, at least at the cleansing unquote and I agree with that statement, 100%, But now listen to what he says here quote, and I think it's baffling and presumptuous to assume that pro abortion policies kill more people than culture, saturating pro itself. Pride unquote. It's hard to imagine that John Piper's saying what I think he's saying Now, if what he means by this is that man in this fallen prideful state is doomed to death because of his fallen prideful nature, which ever one of us who's ever lived has in which I agree. All John Piper's saying in the statement is that it is presumptuous and arrogant to assume that abortion kills more people or babies. Then people who die And my responses, and the point is what the fact remains that abortion is a massive killer. Let me give a substantial on this. There has been 1.5 billion with a B babies, which have been aborted worldwide in the past 50 years and estimated 50 million abortions, air carried out throughout the world every year, approximately 90% of down syndrome babies are aborted worldwide. 40% of all yearly deaths in the world are from abortion. Every two seconds of baby is aborted every time your heart beats, Ah baby dies. That's worldwide and when John Piper is saying is that the president's tweets The president's boastfulness are killing more people or ling the deterioration of a culture that will kill more people than abortion. He downgrades the evil of abortion for the sake of focusing his attention on the behavior, whether real or imagined off the president. Now you don't have to tell me what you're thinking. I can imagine exactly what you're thinking after what I just stated. I will say, However, it's true that a leader's moral behavior can on its own being nationally at even Worley Devastating. Oh, yes, Think of Stalin, Mao Hitler. The difference, however, is that these monsters or totalitarian, authoritarian despots who were a law unto themselves. This isn't so in the West, with the exception of the abortion industry. Now Piper nears his end of the article by saying this quote when I consider the remote possibility But it might do any good by endorsing the devastation already evident in the two choices before me. I am loath to undermine my calling to stand for Christ exulting faith hope. And love. Jump. Piper loves Jesus. I don't question that. But I do question his outlook on reality, especially in the political sphere. Now, what do we do about this? If you have the article, you can put it in the circular file cabinet. Put it aside..

"We also have a live s O as Bible study to prevent every Sunday at five PM So if you would like to be a part of it, join us on Facebook under the name scarlet on stone, and you will be connected to our study. First we Eso West want to congratulate Amy Cockney Barrett for being confirmed by the Senate as an associate judge on the Supreme Court. It was a 52 to 48 vote. All but one Republican voted for her, and she received zero votes from the Democrats. Now I can't possibly think that the reason That she wasn't voted by the Democrats was because of a lack of qualification. That certainly wasn't the case. It appears to the Democrats in the Senate that this active mother of seven was an existential threat to the welfare. Of our Republican. Therefore, the Democrats had absolutely no choice but to not vote for her. Of course, this had no effect. She will be the 115th justice confirmed to the Supreme Court, and she'll be the fifth woman to be confirmed to the court in its 231 year. History. She now feels the seat that was once held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was sworn in a Monday by the longest standing member of the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Here's an excerpt of what she stated at her swearing in quote. The oath that I have saw me taken tonight means at its core, that I will do my job without any fear or favor and that I will do so independently. Of both the political branches and of my own preferences. I love the Constitution and the Democratic Republic that it establishes, and I will devote myself to preserving it, Unquote. She'll take Justice Ginsburg's place immediately and get to work on the matters facing the high court, and we it s a West wish her God speed in her new calling. The last week, I talked about an article that was published on October 22nd from a well known pastor, teacher and author. Now last week, I didn't mention the name of this author. But for today, in part two of our critique I will share who he is. So that you our audience will be able to track with what I'll be saying, and to provide a clear context for those who don't know who he is his name. Is John Piper. Dr John Piper to some pastor Jon Piper toe. Others. Let me give you a glimpse into his background Now. He was born in 1946 in Tennessee. He was a son of an evangelist and became a Christian. At the age of six. He attended Wheaton College in Illinois. Now for those who don't know Wheaton College is Billy Graham's all a martyr. He then went on to Fuller Theological Seminary, which, for those who may not know is in Pasadena, California. Now, my beautiful wife, Sally is from that area, and we tend to do day trips up to Pasadena on a regular basis. Now, most of you already know that Pasadena is the home of the Tournament of Roses Parade. Given every New Year's day, we've all seen that parade and it's held right on. We call Colorado Street, which is a center for all kinds of shopping adventures. Now in that street in that area. There has been over the last decade. A gentrification of that area, So it really is amazing place today. Now, if you haven't been to Pasadena before and want to know where to go. If you do visit May I suggest that you visit the Huntington Library. It's a pretty amazing library Park and museum it as Chinese and Japanese gardens. Beautiful chateaus, where Incredible works of art can be seen, like Blue Boy and pinking. If you've seen those paintings, you know exactly what I'm talking about. It is ancient books and artifacts like a copy of the Gutenberg Bible, you know, from like, 500 years ago. And a myriad of other incredible things. It also has cafes and a fantastic gift shop. Just in case you have interest in doing any shopping now. Fuller Theological Seminary is located in passage as well. Now I have been to the seminary few times and right next to it. They used to be a great bookstore called the Archives Bookstore. I blew. That also was the bookstore for the seminary. And I loved going into that bookstore because it had just about anything you could possibly imagine regard the books of theological or literary nature. I love books like that. Well, the archives bookstore some years ago moved to a new location. And I think this year it actually closed permanently. Very sad. Now I've die aggressed. We had to get back to John Piper. So he received his master divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary. By the way and theological circles We nicknamed the Master of Divinity. We call it the M div not from their jump. Piper went to the University of Munich, Germany, where he received his doctor of theology. He then taught a Bethel seminary and ST Paul, Minnesota from 1974 to 1980. Then in 1980, he became the pastor off Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota until his retirement. In 2013. He is the founder of Desire Ng God Ministries, which has been very influential in churches and for Christians alike for decades, whether they are leaders or just Lehman Now, since his retirement from the pulpit in 2013, he has continued his work as an author and as a speaker. And it is in this capacity of author which has brought his work to our attention and s O s radio. Now I have known of Pastor Jon Piper and his work for a long time if you'd been a Christian for awhile and are interested in the state of the Christian church or theology, or even social issues within the context of Christianity. In the name John Piper will be familiar to you. His name is inescapable. If you've never heard of him, let me just say that he is one of the most recognizable evangelical Christian thinkers in the country. So he has quite an influence among not only typical Christians of all ages. It also among academics within Christianity..

So If, you guys didn't notice when when asked about the the systematic theology you hesitated just a little bit aiming just a little bit because it was waiting. For my friends is the the books, the reason this is a provocative title recovering from biblical manhood and womanhood is because you're directly challenging. The book that's grew them and John Piper Roach in the nineties called biblical or recovering biblical manhood. So you're. One little word in there and and it's it's a challenging title but I love it. I love it. So. Why, why what was was kind of the impetus and emmy, we already started talking about the the idea of discipleship for for everyone. But what was the impetus for the for that book and what he thought we should you should challenge that whole idea. It's funny because I wasn't originally wanting to make this about a challenger to of this movement of Biblical manhood and womanhood. My next plan for writing my. Passion. And I feel like my books do kind of build off of one another was to start working on a more of a tool for churches to help in discipleship. and to use in training and disciples..

That's a million God relationship problem. So I gotta work it out with him. And then work it out. In other people right and I love how it circles back to even what we talked about the beginning and that's Not striving toward a perfect balance or a perfect rhythm that you feel comfortable with striving toward a growing relationship.

How would you advise them at this point? Checks our definition of purpose. What am I measuring that by? How do I define that? Am I am I agree with God Or am I trying to figure something else out? Early on I had a lot of different. Ideas about that that didn't coincide with God's understanding of it and how why he created me right? You know There's some of the John Piper's real big on we live for the glory of God right? Well. We do. were, created for him. That's the deal. Find yourself in this probably my age so showing, but I find myself thinking okay. What else you know like? That's Great I. Love I agree I love it. But I'm honestly to be completely vulnerable genuine about it. My first thought was okay and what else? Because Interpal state. We can try to substitute other things for that. Your talked a really old person about ready to die. That's in Christ. Am I right now or take you? Okay. Oh. Shoot chateaux Kelly's part. No I mean, really close. I just had this piece about him. Because they realize. I'm almost on. I'm almost home A friend of a friend, his wife was dying of cancer and he texted his friend and said, she passed away. Last night, but it was really beautiful because. She settled into a piece about it and he was so at peace as well, and it's still going to be painful. I can't imagine the pain of losing your wife and the mother of your kids. The way he described it just and it was a couple of sentences and he said it was it was really beautiful to get to be there with her in that and I just thought only through Jesus can you have that kind of perspective? The tent building thing. Keeps ringing true for me Everything on to see inexperience. Here. Right now today. Is temporal. SNOT permanent. God is actively building for me. And Eternal, building, in in glory. So he said as disciples, the night was going to cross. Don't be troubled in your. You believe in God believe also in me. I'm leaving. But. When I leave him, we'll go build you a place. And get ready I'm coming to get you. Okay. Now, I gotta I gotTa dial that back to to today this afternoon set him office talking nut head. That's that's that's real. Everything here's temporal. And that's what I keep fighter myself trying to get a grip on even in this conversation alone is you know send you all of these questions beforehand. So you can think through Elman and all of a lot of them centered around this question about purpose and I love slash contest hate that you keep pointing back to the same thing because I wanted to be. We'll do this this and this, and you'll feel like you've accomplished your purpose it. Will cost us self effort and you feel good about yourself. Say. Even that is bankrupt. Because it's Jesus said if you're. GonNa if you'RE GONNA be my follower. Deny Yourself. Take up your cross daily and follow me. Right and I'm not I'm not trying to be super spiritual. Are Pie in the sky. Really. Simple. Yes. That's what I mean by minimalistic seventy. When I was thirty five. I knew everything. I wanted to know what the next task was. To, ask me I'd tell you. 'cause I knew everything and I could do everything. Seventy. Wow I. don't know what that means God. Help me understand and what kind of peace comes with that you know like the piece of knowing. That same word again, you don't have to strive. To, get something that you think is there that you just haven't gotten a grip on yet that if you've made a decision to follow Jesus, you already have a grip on it. See straubing be still. And know that I am God because I'm your refuge and your strength and your strong tower. No me. Quit straubing so much Kelly that almost feels like a I don't know if the right word it just feels like pressure. Yeah Yeah. And it's not. It's active. But. But because our rhythm has been defined by the world, our culture. Right. We get caught up in that lie. And we think that. Resting in the Lord, is a passive activity. and. It's not when you can think about a million other things you could doing that would be self-satisfied. We sat down and get Your Bible out and your journal and start to. Get time with God. What's the first thing that happens you start thinking about everything you've got to get the day. What's next? Yeah When did you feel like? You step into what you were meant to do I mean even if it's just wind, did you when do you feel like you finally grasped this two questions one? When did you feel like you finally found the rhythm in your life that you would see what's his name you in the sense of? Finding your purpose in a relationship with Jesus, instead of progress or growth or an step. Or a job or whatever it might be. When did you feel like I'm doing what I was meant to do? And I'm at peace with it and I'm going to keep going with it. I'm not sure I. Bet there you in are not sure right I've experienced that I. It's a path I'm walking. Not a step at took the the reality. Is Everything we've been talking about is that journey I'm on Without went hours caught up in I'M GONNA I'm Gonna I'm essential to God's work and he can't do it without me.

Many times you're just responding, right? You see our lives flow from the kind of person that we are. The kind of person that we become. We, there's not some kind of succession of timeouts for reflection that we that we get to take. No, we we're becoming something. And so I wanna ask you what are you becoming? The sort of the spirit the word of God has been given to you so that you can be proficient with it so that you can know it so that you can you can understand it and study at on it so that you can use the logic of the word to respond to the attacks of the enemy just like Jesus, did and watch the spirit fight as you abide. And so what is your commitment to immerse yourself in the word of God? What does it look like? Are you training yourself actually the wheeled the sword of the spirit. More than that or you fella shipping with the God of the word You See. A Godly Life John Piper says is lived out of an astonished heart. A heart that is a staunched with grace. And we go to the Bible to be astonished. To, be amazed at God. To Be, amazed at Christ and the Cross and Grace and the Gospel. So dear, brothers and sisters would you commit tonight to press the Scriptures to your soul? To pray for the awakening, your affections, your passions for the glory of God. Because in doing so you will stand firm in the midst of spiritual battles in the grace that your father has provided for you. And wheeled the sword of the spirit just like Jesus did.

"To mingle what? How can we do that in a way? That's not just here in the nursery or watch your kids or you know yeah. I think a lot of times we we tend. Am I saying we add someone who got married at three four has been married now for five years So we tend to think of singles as the one who the ones who need to come to us with. You need a hug. Come to meet. Ask me I'll give you a hug And I think me what we see in scripture is at crisis always going to the marginalized and I think singles in a lot of ways are marginalized in the church today and say that someone who was single until she was thirty. Four experienced marginalization In the onus is on those who are not marginal has to go to the marginalized so waste. That married people can do that. I mean I ask often every time I mean right now. We're you know we're in the middle of of shelter in place in keeping Distances complicated but in normal times I every time I seen my single friends and I'm both male and female. I hug them and I hugged them. And I'm talking close friends. I hug them indiscriminately a Hug. Them well and they hug me back because they need it they. They are hungry for that physical affection. They know when they come to the Wilbert home that they're going to be hugged by Laurie. An Nate And oftentimes so loved watching my husband's sort of think through these things in and I think he'll end He is demonstrative personnel with his Physical affection with our friends so my single girlfriends will walk in the door and he will hug them right away Just so that. They know they know that they're going to get that when they come to our home. That's how we practice it. I think you can look different for other families I think I think. Other ways are Inviting unmarried people to sit near us. It with us at Church. Think that's a really big one. I see so many you know singles who sit by themselves and feel so alone. I know when I There have been times where you know. A single friend will sit with me and my husband at Church and my husband's arm will be around me and my arm will be around my friend Because there is there is that they are part of income part of our family unit for those moments and I think that can be really healing For for them. I think I think for unmarried. People particularly people who have grown up in sort of purity culture within the Church on. There's almost a psych also disembodiment of like they because they're saying no because they're trying to walk in purity because they're denying their flesh they can almost forget that they're flush matters a lot of ways and we need to remind them their flesh does matter and we're thinking about the desires that they have one of the stories that I share in the book early on is from John Piper and he's talking about a woman who would harm herself so she would go to the hospital. This happened dozens of times and he finally said I just want to understand what's going on for you like. What are you thinking about when this is happening? I want to know how to care for you. And she said I like it when they touch me at. He was brokenhearted because he just thought I I just don't he. You know he says I made Mark Prayer God make me a good healthy pastoral hugger because I was just devastated by the fact that this woman who was single and older she so desperate for touch that she was harming herself and being lending in the hospital. And and I think we just need to be cognizant of the kind of self harm that's happening. I'm not just talking harm. It lands you in the hospital. I think there's other forms of self harm Forms of self touch that are really pervasive in in singleness. That can really just harm our brains and harm our bodies over a long period of time. And so we see me cognizant of that and cognizant of how there's a hunger there that God put in men and women that needs to be met and I need you know I think some people would say well. It doesn't need to be met. I think it does need to be men. I think God was the first one to say it wasn't good for men to be alone and you know it's the first thing in creation that's not good that man salon so we need to enter into those spaces and be willing to engage their brothers and sisters and healthy ministering faithful touch is just one of the ways we need to enter into their their spaces. I really appreciate a lot of stuff that you talked about about single masks. In fact I message one of my friends in the middle reading the book and said You need Buck numb because I thought a lot throughout it and have a closing branches actually been on the podcast about singleness. And you know in her fifties didn't set out to never be married but just has never been asked and you know she's very content and has many close friendships but And I've mentioned this before but Years ago when my husband and I found that there were singles in the church that were really struggling and we talked to them and I said Sunday's really hard pressed because we go back home and we're just sitting there alone so we started inviting the singles on Sunday afternoons to survey. Didn't have to be you know sitting home alone and in their loneliness but I was thinking also I have A couple of people close to me that in the last several years have gone through divorced. Their spouses left them. And one of the things. And you talk a little bit you know in the book about you know what your husband went through and and whatnot so when you have this relationship and maybe the marriage wasn't even good and stuff but e- even when the marriage wasn't good in one of the situations they still go through just a profound loneliness and and really that touch is missing too. I don't know that they've ever said that specifically but I think in some things that they've said that that that's their Can you think of other ways that we can help the singles in our churches? Yeah I mean there's so much. Do you mean just in regard to touch or do you mean. Well just. Yeah I mean while your book is handled with care. So maybe you know. We'll touch but also encompassing just carrying your singles and and that includes people that were married and are now finding themselves sprinkle. I think one thing. That's really important to ask good questions. I think so often we because we bring our stories with us. We tend to assume that everyone else is sort of seeing the world through our is And I think it's so important for us to be good question asker and so One of the things I try to do with a unmarried friends. Who maybe don't have a spouse. Who's if they're married spouse just want someone who's asking them deep probing helpful revealing questions to ask the cows your heart doing. Hey how's your you know. How's your body doing right now? So an example would be you know a friend who sterling things Zaidi Through this this lockdown that we're in one of the questions I ask is. Where are you feeling that in your body Just to help them and just remember. Almo body and care for my body and that's GonNa help my anxiety in these news.

"Feeling the right things or that that I'm saved and the response that I typically would get as well? You know they respond to the question do you. Do you feel that you love God do you you feel this? Do you feel that will sometimes? And they say well. Then we'll just look. We're just looking for a pattern. Like is there a pattern right a general brain? I'm like whatever yeah is there. Is there a trajectory of onward and upward and my response to that was always how much how how much trajectory my exactly name is supposed to have? And finally it wasn't until you know one of the I remember one of my friends. He sent this to me of a few years back and I was like. We're has this been all my life and Shout out to our denomination only reform brothers and sisters that hold the three forms of unity but the Heidelberg catechism question sixty is so weighty and good and something that I return again some as where the question is this how are you righteous before God and the answer is only by true faith in Jesus Christ so that though my conscience accused me that I have grossly transgressed all the commandments of God and have kept none of them and am still inclined to all evil God without any merit of mine but only of Muir grace grants and imputes to me the Purdis Perfect Satisfaction Righteousness and holiness of Christ holding even so as if I had never committed any sin. Yes as if I had fully accomplished all the obedience which crisis accomplished for me inasmuch as I embrace such benefit with a believing heart again when I was asking these questions of how can I know how can I know would if I don't feel these things. I wish somebody would have just pointed me to that. Those truce exactly things that you can bank you and restaurant go ahead John. Yep One of my deacons I know he. He probably will listen to this. I can remember early on so. He's br very new believer and he kept hearing me talk about the glory of Jesus Christ in the wonder we're in the Fijians at the time. And just he he. He finally got up enough courage and said. Hey John I'm just I'm just going to be real with you man like when you say the Word Jesus. It does nothing for me. I don't know who he is. I don't know anything about it. I mean I believe I'm a Christian. I I believe like he died on the cross but the whole like I believe in God but this whole thing about you saying they looked at the sweetest joy of the kindness. None of that like I just like. It does nothing for me to which I could then say. Well then maybe you're not a Christian. I could have said because you are trying to have these affections for Jesus and what. I began to help them do understand that through time and through exposure of the Gospel. You're you're going to have won a knowledge base of trust which then in the midst of pain and suffering you will then understand. What does it mean to rest in this absolute foundational rock solid love of Christ for you and you know just going back to? I'm reading the tweet again. It says defines having faith apart from feelings Do are there people in History? Who have these emotional experiences where they go from? It could be a horrible lie for just be a massive Struggle with doubt to this overwhelming assurance. And they they're they just these feelings and affections come flowing out of them. Yes but I will tell you this and every guy around here is probably experienced. Those overflowing emotions points in their life. I every day doesn't feel like that to me. The other day did two weeks ago. Ju just remember when we did the podcast a couple of weeks ago and we were talking about how you had read. Jeremiah and I had read this about last week and there was like this emotional high. I had But I don't live there matter of fact most of the time I don't live there a most of the time I struggled to to to find my hope in Christ because my emotions are elsewhere. Yeah so the good news is the fact that we are saved by. Jesus not our feelings about him. I think we can all agree that that's a good agreed and the reality is resolved. Say Yeah the the reality like John just depicted and I alluded to this earlier and Jimmy. I know you agree is that there are seasons there are there are moments there days hours and seasons of our lives where we do kind of have those waves of joy just washing over our hearts and souls where where were joyful. We're satisfied we're thrilled. Were moved and in those moments are fantastic and I know that we all wish we had more of them but then for every one of those moments we probably have several where those waves are just not washing over are sold at the tide has gone out and it's like I don't I don't know where my my feelings for the Lord our today but I can't I can't find them in those moments often unprompted like brothers are to pray and ask the Lord to to work and move in my heart and the rest but I want to be fair to John Piper. I mean he did write a book called win. I don't desire God but he had to write that book. He seriously though he had to write that book because of the things he had written and said in so many other situations because he he paints a picture of the only way that that. You're legitimate is if YOU TRESOR. Jesus above all things which humbly. I would say bro if I want to treasure Christ above all things. If you're if you're saying you want to try to Christ above all things okay. But if you're saying that the only way you're a legitimate. Christian is if you treasure Jesus above all things like well I guess I'm going to hell and everybody else that I know is to. And so you have. He's put himself in a position where he has to clarify what he means. And it's like look I'd I don't desire God with all my heart all the time and so I'm not saying what it seems like I'm saying and I could say more about that but John. Piper does not mean that you always feel perfectly about God but what we're asking impressing for is clarity and precision of language so that you don't gangs and I know I know on on Youtube you're going to get comments and on facebook and people are going to come to his defaced. And say you're not you're not listening saying and and all I have to say is that Theo cast is not the only one making this observation. This is been criticisms of Jonathan Edwards. This has been a criticism of John Piper for many many years that I'll tell you this right now to this day my I credit John Piper for the for this amazing joy I have in the sovereignty of God. I mean the way it is when I was when I was coming out of the Armenian pit. He just created so much affection and desire and I just loved a loved his passion and his patients and his kindness. And so. Please don't think that this is Piper bashing moment but I will sail back to scripture. Yeah Yeah let's all let's go to scripture and just say hey on on on a broad level in predatory songs that are in there even the songs of struggle and I mean just go read Som- like Psalm Psalm. Five or even even David when he writes Psalm fifty one. There's a there. David want for a very long period of time. I mean you have to think about it. It wasn't a twenty four hour period from the narrative that David went from The the desire to killing the husband too. I mean it was there is Sean. I mean even to the point where the Prophet Nathan finally had to come up and say dude okay. Apparently you aren't seeing what you're doing so I'm going to have to tell you. And what does God say after that? What does God's about David? He's still a man after his own heart. Meaning that David. David didn't somehow prove himself to be an unbeliever. So there's just a side where what I think ends up happening is And we have this where people look at the failures of their life and instead of looking to something outside of themselves and repenting to it. I believe a lot of people here this kind of message from Piper because I know this for a fact because we get emails and phone calls and facebook about this that it causes people to stay longer incen- and longer in in not pursuing Restoration and longer in doubt because they don't feel like it's achievable like it's. It's an run achievable goals. Exactly right. It's unattainable well and and I would. I would add to that. There is no better way to avoid loving your neighbor. Then spending all of your time in your closet trying to sort out your own emotions let me just to be really. Honest is that and that is one of my big complaints I maybe complaints is the wrong word. But you know one of my big assessments of that whole feelings based movement if you will the hedonistic movement is is essentially. It has over grossly. I think become an individual individualization and privatization of the Christian life where it is an intense focus on the individual and his her feelings rat rat his or her enjoy. Yeah exactly right rather than you know rejoicing and resting in the objective truths and I think something we can per perhaps talk about in the in the members podcasts is. We're not even considering the fact that man. I just know people. They're just not emotional. They are non emotive people or they perhaps have some sort of condition hormonally physically mentally. That just does not allow them to feel things that dare. I say average normal people feel and so what are you. What are we supposed to do with that email? Sure so well we could talk a good example to that Jimmy that one of the former host Ryan Haskins of known him for eight plus years now and he's like out enough. I've ever seen him cry or like show any other emotion than just kind of what we call Ryan and so you know right. I'd be like I'm like well. Maybe Ryan's not save their go. Ryan.

And he's Sting Operation Own Predatory Journal mm-hmm. You wrote a psych paper in fact you you actually wrote a computer program to write hundreds of pipers. Yeah actually it spat out thousands. I ended up only needing hundreds. He's computer program changed the authors affiliations chemicals Chantelle and other ingredients fairmont but funding was pretty much time and the world potentially will changing. Yeah it was a thrill Cuba Canada. John I was basically claiming that this chemical that I found in this little lichens little plant plant like creature was able to kill cancer. Cells in solution. So you know in principle you could inject this stuff into your blood like you. Doing chemotherapy be and it would hopefully kill off the cancer cells and I had these very impressed with charts showing the results very impressive. Yeah it fights value the pipe hypoc standard convicting but they will all dated with glaring eras. And this would take literally one minute just one glance really of any reasonable title science. Who was doing peer review of this paper you just look at the numbers representing this charts and they just make no sense at all? Just don't make any sense and the design if the experiment that was fatally flawed too. I mean these are the kind of mistakes that high school stupid make like these. This isn't even college mistakes. This is just like the biggest most most embarrassing scientific mistake imagine. This isn't subtle stuff and then John Wind even I just wanted to like bring it to the next level so at the into the paper I have the authors say that you know. The next thing we're going to do is test. This humans which to any reviewer should be the biggest red flag I mean aside from the fact the science it looks like completely junk. That's just completely unethical. Then he targeted general predatory including two run by tape one cold medicinal chemistry another biology amid the eight-month he admitted ten pipers awake and what happened. Next is incredible incredible. Any reasonable publisher should have looked at that paper and said not in no way on that publishing this a lot of journals. Dd Yes it gives us the very murray doc stats well. The darkest of dark stats is that sixty percent of the publishers accepted. My article did any any of those sixty percent off to you to make any kind of amendments almost never when they did it it involved. Formatting trivial changes often they would asked me to add citations two papers that they'd published which is also really not a good practice but now they almost never did any substantial reviews and even in the Buick that DDP to conduct some kind of Conduct Peer Review John Piper with open accepted. Anyway I even after a damning review. What more to mainstream todd and the publishing L. V. and Daij court out not much to their embarrassment? Yeah it was grim. That was not a great day for Scientific Publishing and so over. The course of that experiment took months to finish. I just sort of got more and more pessimistic about the publishing world. It really changed my view of the whole industry that I was part of some people who a had been caught up in the sting did contact me afterwards effect. We got at least one angry letter to the editor from one of these journals. Yeah that got caught with its pants down but I don't have that much sympathy for them because they had the one job. You know if you're the editor of journal all you gotTa do is withhold the integrity of the journal and clearly weren't doing that as of the more reputable journals a betrayal of trust and. I wonder what you'll respond CANETTI's Oh yeah. Yeah absolutely everyone craft all over the whole thing. How else would they have reacted? It was basically like taking the giant dump on their entire world. A couple of editors lost their jobs but considering that they had jobs that a fake journal. I I don't see that it's such the big loss so it either a handful of us now. In the industry the Predatory publishing industry has not gone away has not left. Scott team fact all indications that it has grown Mac. Delay going strong. If you carried out the sting operation again. What do you think? Oh I think the picture would probably be worse if I were to do it again. Though I'll tell you what I would do is I would Send a sample papers to the the publishers. Who have the more traditional model as well it? It's kind of amazed me that this whole problem that I uncovered was dismissed by many for the simple fact that I hadn't also submitted fake papers to different kinds of journals at so they felt like they were being unfairly picked picked on the people in the Nexus Publishing Movement and Compassionate Movement. Did they think that you had unfairly. Targeted them in particular. Oh yeah absolutely they drag me through the mud. It was really unpleasant claiming that I'm Michelle's for the traditional scientific publishing world which is hilarious if if you've known me at all it's really quite the opposite.

"Heard of Christian hedonism have heard of it. No it's a it's an idea The John Piper kind of came up with that is basically the idea that the more we you love life the more we do things in life that we love the more glory God gets because of us loving what we're doing and To me that just Kinda like Oh you know this whole to me. This whole conversation is applied around that this or can be pied around that the the concept of doing things that that create gate love in us should be in essence the purpose and the purpose is to search. How how things that we look? I mean just so simple to the quote on an hopefully hopefully I understood it because it seems Louison sometimes he talks like a brick but let me read this quote that I was like like man I love you know. Sometimes I love how he says things when a get it. If there lurks most modern minds the notion that desire zeier our own good.

"Very special program and trying to well to do something a little different every you know every now and then we need a break in the chaos from the insanity the hustle and bustle a chance to sort of re center and focus on what matters most this time of year I guess John Piper author of ninety minutes and have a just talking about the story he died thirty years ago or so in Texas on a highway but yet he's on with us today and talking about how that happened how his life was saved what happened the miracle that took place in the wreckage boy what a metaphor for each of our lives as I say that I just I'm I'm struck by the fact that miracles can happen in our wreckage in our mass no matter where we are no matter how that off we think we are things can happen and they do every day down they do which you can you can get killed in a car wreck on the way to church you you'd better be ready all the time accidents do happen and then never thought for a minute that this was some kind of I mean I know this man didn't get in a truck that morning and say I want to go out and kill somebody so it's you know you just happens and it's not what happens to you it's what you do with it I later in a hospital bed for all those months and I I really became profoundly depressed you say all well you're you're a Christian pastor with the you know they don't become depressed lonely certainly do maybe talking to some right now it I do not I I was given very little hope I mean they didn't think they would be able to save my leg they didn't think that they would be able to save my arm I was going to be really maimed for the rest of my life as it turns out they were able to do it through some very experimental metal procedures but I really do descended into to depression I wanted to talk to somebody who understood what I was going through and the devices they installed on the external Sixers had never been a put on somebody on the femur before so I was in a unique situation where there was literally no one I could talk to about this because no one had experienced this and that really that really set me back great deal and so one morning while I was really talking to god there's nobody in the hospital room but but the but me and him and I said to him why can't you send someone here who understands how I feel if I could just talk to somebody they could give me some hope about the future whatever it is I can handle it but I don living in such a period of uncertainty I think Christmas time is a time when we reflect on that maybe we've lost a loved one this year maybe we are not in financial situation where we could really provide for our family the way we want a lot of things may be going on bankruptcy divorce all sorts of things it's also myself and I'm not a hopeless situation but to help the situation and god spoke to me that morning and said it's not about you it's about what I can do through you now that I could not do before the truck hit you you need to turn your test into a testimony and your message your message and return to other people instead of you know pleading with me god speaking about how I can help you you need to help other people because now you're equipped in a better fashion than you ever were before the truck hit you you need to take the same hands you're shaking at me and reach out to other people and help them up and that changed my life it's not a particularly outwardly emotionally person but I began to weep at that point and then continued to do it till the sun came up the next morning and that was the first day of the rest of my life and so what I've been trying to do ever since is trying to get people in there have been but also help them have a better trip on the way and we can all do that we could take our our sum total of experiences it's about having a pity party which I was having and reach out to other people and help them through and they will understand why we went through that it was she in preparation for ministering to other people so that is what I gathered out of a lot of things that happened to Ricky including get hit by had at all but a two Wheeler was to realize that we're really here to help everyone else gets there and that's what I do every day of my life that's what I'm doing right now sounds like you found your you really found the discover your calling in and your purpose I did I I tried to figure that out but I mean I was and and and listen god for bid that any of us have to get hit by a truck to figure that out but yeah thankfully you did so you can tell us about it I wouldn't wish it on anybody really but it is I said earlier it's not one amps to use what you do with it and and so a lot of people have had a lot of things happen to us as we come to the end of another year and it's in it's about the future it's about what we can do now to be a blessing to other people and if we if we focus on that and we determined to do that god will help us do that and then we'll know why we went through the things that we went through a twenty nineteen and hope for a better twenty twenty is he on and that's something that I think that's missing a lot from maybe our our conversation these days you watch the news you turn on the TV and everything seems like the sky is falling but there is hope you're you're right adjusted it it can seem like an awfully dark night and I went through a long series of dark nights even during the day and and so I do understand what it's like to be you know hit the bottom there's one good thing that can happen when you at the bottom you can push off and and I did at the bottom and and and you know why is it that I needed to I know now why I'm here every day and it's it is it is to help people get to heaven and and and on a day to day basis help them have a better life now that that really is what Christmas is about and as we turn the page on another year and they are relentless maybe this is the year we can we can we can leave a lot of that stuff behind the things that just buying this and and capture us and and be this down I I I I I believe in that I think it's crucial and hopefully for a lot of people who are listing this will be a turning point I want to talk about what it was like in heaven for you but first don I hear you saying that one of the keys that you learn to having a better life now is shifting your focus from you your mess and your wreckage and shifting it towards others in a way that to to serve and maybe help other people is that is that one here it absolutely is we can we can concentrate and focus on the rex in our life and let's face it there are going to be somewhat there haven't been any there will be and I'm not trying to be pessimistic I wanna be realistic but it's not it's not bad if you want we can we can be devastated and we will be and we could be hurt and we will be and we can have a lot of things happen but we stay there if we live in that kind of condition then that is no life that is not a life we were when we start looking beyond ourselves when we start looking at other people who have similar situations and hold their hand and say I understand how you feel they found somebody who gets it and that's all I ever wanted I just wanted to find somebody you get the glute understood what I was going through we all go through terrible things but it's it's that that's not the point the point is getting through the terrible thing and then looking around for opportunities where you can help someone else do the same thing and and then you'll kind of understand okay now I know why I went to that it was put to prepare me to help these people get through to the other side and when you do that it'll put a whole new look it'll it'll be a whole new chapter in your life it'll be a discovery that will give you hope and hope is really all we we have in life is is hope hope that tomorrow will be a good day that holds the will get the job that we're trying to get help that will pay the bills your hope that we have a healthy existence there's no guarantees I mean the one guarantee in life is that this intense and you need to be ready for what happens next but we can have a meaningful life on the way even though it always will be perfect it is it is if we have a goal and we're trying to look beyond ourselves to reach out to other people then we really can make a difference when it's all over done with this right now author of ninety minutes in heaven and that book you can read more about the story no doubt they actually get a movie about it as well but what was it like in heaven we talk about making this trip they are a better place and how you can make this life a better trip on the way back let me talk about that and what the experience may be and haven't done only come back we're gonna take a quick break we're back in just a few minutes here with don Piper offering ninety minutes in heaven he died thirty years ago but yet he's on the phone

"First we're gonna go check traffic with Mark McKay. Bring. Back to normal. Come Monday morning. Sandy springs. Westbound the afternoon prick everybody back into the proverbial pool after big break. Delays are approaching wrote down at twenty five the west side. Ear out. Deductible highway seventy eight. Eric. Thank you very much. I don't recommend game of thrones to any of you. And I have to be very very careful about that. I I'm not recommending game of thrones to any of you. And the reason I'm not recommending game of thrones to any of you is because a lot of my Christian friends get really aggravated when I tell people that I like game of thrones. The reason is because several years ago, the pastor John piper or a desiring God ministry wrote very critically of game of thrones that it was bad. Glorified violence. Glorified six. And I never watched it. But I like John piper in he said, and I believe it. And then finally just take his word for it. I I am going to watch the first episode of the first of it was it was gory. It was violent. It was profane. I wasn't going to do it in. I was mindful of the time that I watched it was watching it on an ipad on a plane, and there was a kid behind me. And there was was sex nudity violence, and I didn't want the kid who is over my shoulder. Look at my pet seeing this stuff. So I didn't watch it. So while back later, I tried it again. And decided that I wasn't going to. I was given a shot, and I tried and I got halfway through the the first episode. And I again, I just I couldn't do it in as seen last hour that I was in the hospital with those clots in in two thousand sixteen it was the I guess we were headed into the the six season of game of thrones. And. The nurse on the floor of the cardiac ward, I was the only person under seventy there. I was watching a dull swim at night news. Like do you're going to. You're you're going to watch this show any so he took it away from me. And when he took it away from me, if the remote control he turned on game of thrones. And I was hooked. I was absolutely. It was the best scripted television show. I seen you. They tell us in radio to do a tease at the end of a segment to try to get you to come back at the end of every game of thrones episode. You're wanting to come back for more. It is it's just it's an amazingly well written Joe, and it's so not predictable the people who you expect to live. They die. The people you expect a die live the people who covet power wind up in addition to ruthlessly wheeled in it ruthlessly being disposed of the people who want nothing to do with it or the people who wind up often finding themselves in a position power. The whole thing is just it's so well written so well done so amazing and it's going away. And I'm sad. My favorite game of thrones episode hands down the season finale of season six where sir she blows up the septum? It is it is a fantastic episode har- home. I reworked last night. I can't I I don't want to recommend to you. Because once you watch the I can't believe he's recommending studies violent, but I'm telling you, I've never seen a television show as well written and well executed as game of thrones. And I understand why it's a cultural phenomenon I do. Now. What about you? You probably got shows out there, you think I should watch. I don't watch a lot of division. This the reason I'm kind of sad about it is because I don't watch TV is the one thing I do on Sunday nights. I watch game of thrones. I've got six more weeks of doing that. And then I gotta find something else to watch. So your recommendations four four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk when we'll come back. We will start taking your calls. I'm Eric Erickson in for Mark era. Evening news with Eric Erickson, local voice, national attention, beginning.
