"john stotts" Discussed on Truth For Life Daily Program

"The longing of Paul's heart in all of this is to see men and women irrespective of their married state given over to the service of God without distraction. The kind of thing that you find in hebrews chapter 11. Where it says of Abraham describing him in Versailles by faith Abraham when called to go to a place, he would later receive as his inheritance. This is go Abraham. And he went in obedience, he obeyed and he went even though he did not know where he was going. Why, for he was looking forward to the city with foundations whose architect and builder his guide. The prospect of a heavenly city, so changed his view of his earthly pilgrimage. That he was prepared to leave his country, his family, and everything that represented security to him. And Jesus said, come follow me and the man said, I have married a wife. And Jesus said, come follow me and the man said, I have bought a field. And Jesus said, come follow me and the man said, I must first be my father. And you remember Jesus answers to all three statements. He probably would not have been invited on to many Christian talk shows to expound his theology. Let the dead but either death, how hard, how unfeeling. How un family like. How we turn on a perspective. In a moment, any one of us may be called from time into eternity and our pilgrimage is over. That's why this is so important. Now, in verse is 25 to 28. He provides a recommendation. He says in verse 25, now about virgins or single people, I don't have a direct express quote from Jesus, but I'm giving you a judgment as one who by the lord's mercy is trustworthy. I have a recommendation for you. And this is where we come directly to his use of this phrase because of the present crisis. He says, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are. If you've never been married, if you are a virgin, then I think that singleness, he says, makes good sense. However, there are 27 if you are married, I don't suggest that you get divorced, and if you are unmarried, presumably someone who has previously been divorced or their spouse has died, he says I don't think that you should look for a wife. Now in relation to the whole issue of singleness as we saw last time, his instruction makes good sense because, as he says, at the end of their 28, those who Maddie will face many troubles in this life. So he says, if you're single, it's my best judgment that you just remain as you are. It is one thing to face persecution and the possibility of death as a single person, quite another to face it as a married person. Because I'm married person who has children and espouse is going to face persecution and death with a whole ton more considerations. And he says in light of the present crisis, I think it's good for you just to remain as you are. Because children sweeten labors as one has said, but they make misfortunes more bitter. Paul is not suggesting for a moment that celibacy is being is something that is more spiritual, but rather he is saying that in the light of the context, celibacy, he believes, is more sensible. And there's all the difference in the world between those two things. And he says, however, if marriage takes place, it's not sin verse 27. But rather, when high seas are raging, it's no time to change ships. So he says within a time of great crisis, I think it's better that you just hold fire and stay exactly as you are. Then versus 29 to 31 come, which we try to unfold last time, and in that we have an exposition of the principle. And now we go to versus 32 to 34, where he gives us an illustration. His concern is that they would be spared trouble versus 28, and that they would be free from concern versus 32. I would like you, he says to be free from concern. Now again, we have to understand that his great ideal and the longing of his heart is to see men and women serving the lord without distraction. Singleness is not holier, but from Paul's perspective here, it has practical advantages, and those who have been given the gift of singleness, Allah versus 7, will enjoy fewer distractions and they will have more freedom in serving the lord. In contrast, he says the married man or woman has an inevitable twofold concern. And we alluded to this last time. First 33, but I'm married man is concerned about the affairs of this world. How he can please his wife and his interests are divided. In the same thing again and there are 34, but I'm married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world, how she can please her husband. And this distraction is a real distraction. I think the little that I travel, I understand why it is that God gave to someone like John stott, the gift of singleness. Because, for example, in this past week, as I left, I was no sooner out the door than I was thinking about coming back. And all the time that I was gone between the responsibilities that I faced, there was always the underlying concern for my wife and for my children. Inevitably so. And all the time, and even in the midst of proclamation or even in the midst of doing things, given the gift of singleness, those concerns do not arise. Certainly, there are others. There must be, but they are not those. And that's exactly what he's pointing out here. Lightfoot says a man who is a hero in himself becomes a coward when he thinks of his widowed wife and his orphaned children. Despite the great mystique that I've created around my enjoyment of flying, I want you to know that when I was a young man and single flying never cost me a thought. Maybe I was just so dumb. I didn't realize much, but I never concerned me. And it's only in these last years that it has ever been a concern to me. And I think it is because of this, that while a man may be a hero in himself, he becomes a coward when he thinks of his widowed wife and his orphaned children. And you men know that. You know the burden that you carry, and so do you, ladies, when do you see the ham fisted efforts of your husband? As he endeavors to help you in a number of your projects and you imagine being taken out of that context and him being left with your children. You cry out to God that he would save you a little longer if for no other reason than to preserve your family from that incredible potential chaos..

"If you, I just love it. I just love the name Moses. So I'll say Moses. That's a good one. All right. Next question. I've been in believer since the age of 17. I feel like I lack apologetics, are there any resources you'd recommend? Wow, I've been a believer since the age of 17, and yet I guess this writer implies that he or she is no longer 17, what do I recommend? Well, I have written some books of apologetics myself, hard not to recommend them. It really depends on what kind of a reader you are. I mean, seriously, I take the politics seriously, so I have written a bunch of books. I wrote three books in the everything you always want to know about God, but we're afraid to ask series. Everything you always want to know about God, everything else you always want to know about God and everything you always want to know about God, but we're afraid to ask Jesus edition. That's kind of light humor. But I mean, I really poured my heart into those books. I really rarely talk about them. But and the new book is atheism dead is all apologetics. But there are so many that I'm embarrassed. These are all such good questions. I want to revisit them so I think more than a Carpenter is a great place to start. And I also think John stotts basic Christianity. I'll just I'll leave it at that. All right. If you didn't live in the U.S., what country would you move to? Probably California. Okay. Last question. Where do you get your pants shopping question? Where do I get my pants? What store? Well, are you referring to any specific pants? Because I use more than one pant supplier, I think let's see there's I think a lot of stuff I get lately from Ralph Lauren probably. So I'm gonna go with Ralph Lauren. And I met Ralph Lauren in his store in Connecticut, super, super, super nice guy. This is probably a Ralph Lauren jacket and yeah,.

"I wanna bleed scripture. I want everything that comes outta me. That john stott is a either a scott or a english man but he he wrote we must allow the word of god to confront us to disturb our security to undermine our complacency into overthrow are patterns of thought and behavior so they thank you god for the word of god that can help me unlearn all of those things that i had before i became a royal. And so there it is. That's why motivates me all right. The last last one lost motivation. Paul gives us is the name of jesus. Let me read verse. Seventeen to you again and it says whatever you do in word or deed do everything in the name of the lord. Jesus given thanks to god the father through him. I mean it's like i get in bad problems or i don't have a clue what to do. I just say jesus. Jesus jesus jesus. Jesus jesus jesus i mean i found myself in some of the most hardest crisis in my life just saying jesus over and over and over and over again because i just i don't know what else to do. I just know that in that name all things make sense you know in a modern society. We pay little attention to names. I mean it's but in the ancient world a name held significance. It was of the utmost report important. I mean it's like eastern culture. Today is like if i talked to my eastern friends. I would say hey. You disrespected my name. You've brought shame to me and it's a shame society and so that's the same thing back then it was either brought honor or you brought shame by the name. So you're you're representing your parent or your dad. You're going to bring them on or not. Shame often deer an old testament days. God changed a person's name because it some important experience or Or new development that happened in their life member. So jacob became israel so there was a change. Abram became abraham the father of many nations. And so that's what have peter became. Simon became peter. Simon or safest became peter right. Which is the rock. I'd change that as christians. We bear the name of christ. The word christian is found only three times an entire new testament. The name was given originally as a term of contempt but gradually became a name of honor..

One of the candidates is presently a blazing row with the site. The count center because she's refusing to wear a mask.

Twitter is lousy for a lot of things very good for following the election. Comes agape updated on that prediction. If i get any more shootings come in about maternity rights. Get to them. But we we mentioned this earlier in the week and i was asking whether people had lost under children's allowance and i think to be fair we might have brushed over little bit too lightly because every summer there's people have to make provision if to have kids in continuing education. They have to make provision for children's allowances. And it's usually quite routine. And i was just thinking well look. That's maybe a letter that somebody left the top of the bread been. It happens all the time. Then you get it sorted and and it isn't really a massive massive problem. I think underestimated louise. Betas joins me Single parents acting for the rights of kids spark louise what i didn't spot with reading a bit more deeply into it is a rule change. That could leave people very short of money ninety. Thanks very much having the yeah. It was a very Upsetting day and she's to a lot of families when they woke up and the they benefit payments wilson paid and a lot of people depending on where we left without essentials like food milk assuming that the money would be paid at school. Books are school uniforms and then when the money wasn't paid they left short this week. Now you have always have had to tell the department that your children were still at school. That hasn't changed to what has no. It hasn't really changed as such last year. What happened because the schools are closed during cove. there was a change in They waived the form. And you get the forms when the schools reopened in september. So last summer it was paid continuously for sixteen seventeen year olds and they got the form signed the temper now. A lot of parents don't realise firstly when the child turns sixteen that they has to happen. You know there's no it's just it it kind of hidden. They don't like what they what they did. A lot of the times parents don't know until they live. And then they get the form and then it's also sign that form grew up on top of the red been and it's and and yeah exactly and that's fine and usually what happens. Is the forms amongst the child. Turns sixteen so that you can get them to school and that it's only for parents who may and have birthdays in turning sixteen in june or july our all that might be effective but usually in fairness the department social protection. Try to get those those before the end of the academic year here however unfortunately people have to get the form signs last september going back to school for obvious reasons because they had waived their the assignment. People assumed that that would be valid for a year until next september which would be september twenty one coming up and unfortunately what happened was it was only till the end of the academic year. The department was supposed to send out. The new forms. Didn't send out the new phones. They say it was an administrative error. So people quite likely assume covert and an a department hadn't sent letters and time so between the two people were left without money. Now the invocations that we'll get the money won't they got the money and now that that has always been the case and you know if that is okay they will get the money. The problem is when people have phoned up and she stayed department. I suppose hadn't even realized the administrator very themselves so i feel sorry for the benefit section. 'cause just from the because i know we getting and they were saying they're already on the job benefits. I can imagine. They will run on days with calls and then she will. Parents are being told was well the former signed. You have to get the form at the end of august offended. I get the phone signed in school in september. We'll try to pay too soon as possible but in real terms that was going to be a token there was a real comic of people. How do we get three. The most expensive month is the year for children which is august trying to get school books and uniforms and all the time into place it was when i read that and i remembered many in august where dinner dinner was new to this books. Fall donors and you might laugh of but it is no laughing matter. If you don't have to know and and most people would be relying on that child benefit and to miss which would affect me june july august and july-august-september three months that you really need to use it to get the children back to school was a real panic so and she stayed. There was an absolute and utter panic and among parents. I mean some parents told us about going into little getting and milk and having to return back because there's no money in the bank account. They seemed as there. So there was real kinda by for people who would depending on a for this week. They need more medium-term parents who were Looking for to get children back to school. They panicked when being how my budget for this now. Pay five hundred for the jobs to get back to school. When i don't have this money coming in and there was a real panic or not and choose to because when they phoned up this section to section with thing you'll have it in september probably all october so just by chance of spark a part of the national one parent family lines which is made up of nine National organizations dealing with apparently she's includes like children's rights alliance but nowadays when family and all. The big major hitter is dealing with children. A no parodi issues so just like john stott afternoon we had amazing and from two cups that afternoon so was raised as any other business topic. You know that this was affecting parents that they we immediately wrote to the department and to their credit they they wrote back to since we do see. There is a problem we're looking at. We're looking to see if we can be taken. The pragmatic approach this year. And see if we can extend to you know allow payments and get the phone signed in september with no clear definition would take a decision can be made and just let it go through his exactly that they like what they did last year basically that they requirements get the form signed when the schools the coach would be waived and the people would keep in payment until september and then in september. They've got that moment to get the flu schools to sign the forms and then send the phones back in whether they'll.

"And here we are to show talking to back it up the book is a change of affection we're in a particularly interesting juncture in your story Sir please continue so yes so I had this kind of supernatural encounter with god wasn't kind of stay with major supernatural is definitively Supernature it was it was very it was honestly was like Paul road to Damascus kind of stuff I mean it was it was that Intel was sent intent was that intended whether people around you wondering if you're okay I Hey that's funny because there were people actually got very concerned about me because I was were I was retching I mean I was crying so hard that people were worth thought they needed to call someone do they use the paddles on you yes yeah they did but judge a life yeah the doesn't live but I in that moment I also knew so clearly I mean it was like everything just came like god is like just downloaded all this stuff on me and I knew in that moment that being a gay man was no longer who I was and that that wasn't going to be a part of my life anymore I just knew instantly that's what people find so hard to believe because your book is a change of affection a gay man's incredible story of redemption incredible part because I think that many people when they hear someone talking about a spiritual experience they say well that's great for you but I that can happen to me but it sounds to me like you were one of those people to whom it couldn't happen until it did yeah and I. A.'s because no explanation how you can certainly you know I and I knew I knew and to the core of my being that that was I was no that was not my identity anymore and I was I didn't to me it was like I didn't care I just met the king of the universe I didn't care and and by the way Jesus you know unlike all my ex boyfriends my many ex boyfriend he never cheats on me he never lies to me he's I'll never leave or forsake me and he's the best relationship I've ever it's the best relationship I've ever been in in my life and so I never feel like I'm being cheated out of something or like some fairly but that's that's a big teaching point here so forgive me but because I explain something similar right when I had this dramatic conversion experience around may twenty fifth birthday I immediately stopped sleeping with my girlfriend who became my fiance we didn't get married but I I how did I didn't care because this other thing was infinitely wait a year and more persuasive somehow so it's like the that that became a minor very minor issue which again not everybody gets that gift that that it's it's a gift you know yeah you're in a certain lifestyle you live in a certain way and then suddenly got comes in so powerfully that you very easily turn away from a lifestyle yeah and and it's not that I'm I'm not attracted to women yeah I mean I don't know god god created the universe he can do anything but I'm not attracted to women I still have vestiges of kind of same sex attraction it doesn't dominate my thought life like it did before I was saved and so I the but it doesn't to me it doesn't matter if if I am a single and sell that for the rest of my life it doesn't matter I have a relationship with Jesus and by the way I have eternal life which is crazy right well it's it's only crazy if you really get it now yeah you you get it but I think a lot of people that don't get it even if they would say I'm a Christian but that they don't understand how wonderful it is are they haven't had the experience to feel like wow this is so beautiful this is so you know and I and I think all of us a longing for more of that and some people get special dispensation so to speak right because it is a tremendous gift and I think a lot of people so I could never change but you know you probably would have said that about yourself I would say that about myself it's it's just kind of you the reason I like to have people on this program to tell stories like yours is because I want people to know yeah people are experiencing things like this yeah it's way more normal than you think and the stories are not getting told right so it's important I want to say to you it's it's brave of you as courageous of you to tell the story because we're not living at a cultural moment where it's easy to tell a story like this I think you know that well Ellen's not having me on her show want to tell this story how I know can you believe that incredible but the one thing that happened that was another it that same day when I I drove home after the service I don't know how I got home I don't remember how I got home because I was in such a state I got home and I got into bed to take and not because I was so overwhelmed by what had just happened and god it was like Moses in the cleft of the rock god did it again he just was like whoa and I was like whoa and I jumped out of my bed crying again and I just in the middle of my bedroom as a god you have my whole life like it is this is that I was done I was like this my life everything everything changed in a second and then I of course had to tell by friends from brown and from there they were not there that's that's the hard part they they were very confusing they still are I've been I've been I've been through this we we have weirdly similar stories it's it's really wonderfully here you tell the story because again there are a lot of people out there they don't they don't hear from folks like you this is this is people need to know you know you're obviously authentic and and I I just I just think it's important I when did you what did you decide to do with your life at that point I mean it's one thing to have this experience now what do you do well I continued well I mean first of all I just like read the room the Bible variations the I couldn't I couldn't stop reading the Bible and listen to Sir I listen to like twenty sermons a day I was of Seth's tents that fanaticism of it's been anything more than eighteen fanatic so I like I you're listed all of Tim Keller Hoover and like every you know all these other than take Lucas and all these other guys to John Stott John Stott John said I couldn't get enough of him so and then I continued in doing set design but I knew god had some kind of calling on my life and then a couple a few years later god called me to seminary and a very strong way I was weird I was just I knew that I I I felt like I was on a train to seminary and I couldn't get off yeah it was like I felt like Joan I always felt like I was going to you know get thrown into the the water if I did yeah go in so I I I was like well how my gonna pay for seminary and you have to turn down all these production design jobs from my agent if I go to seminary because I'm gonna be a full time student and it's gonna be weird and it's not gonna work out and god was just kinda like I'm gonna pay for seminary like how does that happen you you god okay this ticket it to me through one of the elders in my church Nick toward reaching he Nick this guy Nick prayed for me and I said because I said Nick I think of schools going to seminary but it doesn't make any sense I don't know how I'm gonna do this and he prayed for me and then afterwards he said if you think you're god's gonna pay for seminary and that's your confirmation we're going to go to a break we'll be right back with Beckett cook.

I always play to I always played no grave and always play or there. But okay. So this this is this is keeping it real. And I try to only do this once a year. And I do it now and truth be told I was going to do it in the last segment. So I could move into deeper I, but this is deep is I can go, and I don't have to toss trafficking in case, I cry. My God helped me on a one one. Glenn Beck and Honore. You'll. A friend of mine once told me the hardest thing to be a Christian is one who has never not believed or has no memory of not believing in. I don't have a memory of not believing some of my friends, I have a professor mind from seminary who was an atheist, and he he read Johnstone's book. I actually have a copy of it right here. Basic Christianity, if you are interested in Christianity, if you're Christian, and you're wondering, John Stotts, basic Christianity, read it, and he read it, and he said he got on his knees completely unbelieving in got up from his knees. As if he had never not believed that it was that profound of of a conversion and his wife. Rosemary is like me. He says we we have very boring stories. I just I don't have a moment. My very first memory of my grandmother is sitting in her lap with the golden book bible in her reading the story of Daniel in the lines into this day. My favorite story the bible Dalen the lines. I remember the picture vividly. I actually found a copy of the golden book bible. So when my kids were little I could read it to them. I don't have. I don't have that. But there are moments. Where I have known in ways that I did not know before if you're someone who's driven Christians talk about the the piece that transcends all understanding. And I I've lived that in its these moments like accidentally falling into radio all these things providence never expected to be on TV. I got on TV TV before I was on radio fell into radio. But the week before Christmas here we go. The week before Christmas in two thousand six. I lost my job. I was running red state. We were independent company, and we were out of money and.

Nobody was buying ads on a on a conservative site. Now. And I needed to tell my wife, she was at the doctor for an appointment came to the door. And she had this look on her face, and I needed to tell her, but she had something to tell me, and she told me she had to go to the hospital. She had a blood clot on her jugular vein. They found spots in her lungs back in Labor Day of two thousand six we were headed to the beach, and she's in terrible agony. She had all the symptoms of pulmonary embolism. And the doctor either that or it's gallbladder scanner lungs if it's not that scrawl bladder to this lungs, no pulmonary embolism. But they sell the spa they saw these spots and A the we went to the beach. You want to have emergency surgery shit blocked by duct. They took out a gallbladder. We got home. There was a message from the emergency room saying that we needed to call a back. Immediately scheduled surgery too late. But she went into the the skin for her lungs when they were scanning they found the blood clotting jugular vein, and they're like you got to go to the hospital and be treated for this. And she got there and her doctor. So, you know, there is a rare form of cancer, this is one of the side effects 'cause people don't get blood clots there in if they do that they got sponsor the lungs while you may just have this former cancer, we need to do a biopsy. And so they did a biopsy the week before Christmas in two thousand six. And he was the scene of a movie. They called me back down a corridor into a little room. We're just adore with the window. I think there was a window of the door. I don't know if there's a window in the room. There was a two chairs there was a phone in a bible on a table. There was a doctor and his assistant nurse assistant, my laws, and they told us my wife had six months to live that she had a rare form of cancer. And it had spread into her lungs from somewhere else. They did not know. And because there was a storm outside. There was a wreck in the in the nurse's room was full, and they needed as many doctors could go could go and said, she was recovering. And if we wanted him to come back and tell her that she had six months Livy, he would or could do it and towrad lost my job. So I went, and I waited for her to wake up. And I told my wife she had six months to live. She did up believe me, she really didn't. But that's what the doctor said she had six months to live, and I was out of work. And look at the time. I've gotta go gotta leave you in recovery. I've gotta go get Evelyn our daughter. She's one she's at daycare in. It's almost six and I got to be there.

Is everything's gonna be okay. And she's happy. She can be. I've got I've got to get out of the mud. It's raining and we're getting wet and I'm covered in mud now. My wife's going to die out of a job. I've got to feed the baby I got to change your diaper. I gotta get her down for a nap. Do all of this. And I wait for family to come to take over. And I go up to my office. I've put down for a nap, and I just begin to cry more. So than I'm doing right now. Into send emails to people and tell them, I've got bad news. My Christie's gonna die in. There's nothing we can do. I've got six months with her. I'm going to be a single dad. And I went back to the hospital that night in in. She didn't really even remember that. I told her at I told her again that she had six months to live in. What were we going to do? And we begin to have conversations the conversations you'd never wanna have. But it was the conversation that you have to have because you you're in the moment at this point. And what was I going to do? I was going to be a single dad remarried. What would we do with? How would we raise of them? Where should we live? Should we be close to my family? She'd be close to her family all of these things. In late that night the doctor came in. And he said, you know, what we made a mistake. We've never seen this before. And we thought it was cancer. And we need to send it off to the mayo clinic to be looked at. And it turns out it wasn't. Turns out it wasn't. But I'll tell you what. You can listen to this. God had nothing to do with that. But a fast forward ten years from then. I am in the hospital, and I very literally amd dying. I am it is March of two thousand sixteen and I am very literally dying. I have blood oxygen of less than eighty five percent. My lungs filled up with blood clots, and I'm waiting to be admitted into the cardiac ICU unit and my wife gets a call. From the mayo clinic and the mayo clinic says, hey, we inspected those spots in your lungs ten years ago. We're seeing people from that time period who had those same spots, and they're converting to cancer. We'd like you to come out for a biopsy. I'm literally being wheeled into the ICU. It is actually so bad that the doctor sees my scans and asked if they've taken the body to the more get it's that bad. They don't expect me to make it through the night. And I can talk about that now. And I don't know that I've ever said that on the radio before they they weren't expecting me to live. They was that bad. I still have lots of my lungs, and that's how many I had in my lungs. I've still got him in my lungs. But head Christie nut had that happened to her in two thousand six she not had the misdiagnose. We would not know now that she had lung cancer, and they called it so early because of that, and you know, the next day. I it's so funny. The next day, my buddies, and I were partners the red state. We got a call from group in Washington that wanted to buy red state. And so I didn't lose my job.

I know there are those of you who have been there. I know there are those of you going through hard times. And so I tell I forced myself through the tears through the heartache through reliving the pain every year. That's why I do this. Because I know there are so many of you out there who are going through these things who aren't sure. Sure who were looking for something. And I I want you guys to I I've been there. I have been there. I have lived this hell, and I'm happy to share it with you that sometimes it doesn't work at Christie's got an incurable form of lung cancer. She does there is no cure for it.
