"lightning" Discussed on Lightning Bolts and Leather Jackets
"On the celebrity pastors sweet. It's time for that in the bible. The part of the podcast where we go and we check out a piece of the bible that not a lot of people really think about or talk about and we kind of break it down and we we talk about like what the implications are of this part of the scripture. So we're gonna go to joshua joshua chapter twenty four verse twenty seven so in the story. Joshua is renewing helping israelites. Renew their covenant. With the lord's they won't be stupid and they won't disobey god and and they'll be live in the promised land peacefully you know and it'll be great and the people are like yes. We will do everything you say. And joshua in verse twenty seven turns the people and says this stone has her everything the lord said to us. It will be a witness to testify against you if you go back on your word to god. Now it's a little bit of a weird verse. A stone heard something stones going to be a witness and testify against somebody. How strange isn't that like saying that the earth is alive or whatever. I thought that was like a pagan belief. For like a hippie tree hugger belief immunised right there in the bible the bible also talks about creation groaning and praising the lord and if nobody praised the lord right there's so many other in creation listens to the voice of god when peace be still. Jesus comes the waves in the storm. And he's the one who sends the rain. God got himself as like who tells the lightning where to strike is it. You know it's me so chretien listens to god and praise god and here the bible in recorded scripture. Which if you're a christian you should believe that the word of god is completely infallible in one hundred percent true. Then what does that say. It says that creation can hear and will testify and can testify against people right. So it's very strange is very interesting but it's a very strange. So i i. I wanna say i don't think creation is alive and the way that it has a soul but it's clearly got some sort of here anyway. Some sort of sentence at that's provided by god in order to here and bear witness and it doesn't appear to be a one time occurrence so it's interesting that like hippy beliefs and views about paganism or mother or whatever they're not. I don't believe that they're true because at saying it's like saying that the earth is alive and it's it's got a soul or whatever accident. Those things are not true. You don't worship the earth with alive or not but anything that was an idea that is that is sinful or cultish or whatever. It wasn't created at the out of the blue. Satan is not able to create technically anything. He only can twist what's already true. So there's religions out there that are against god because they are in favor of the earth or nature because they think that it's alive and worthy to be praised or whatever then it's not necessarily untrue that nature is alive just not worthy to be praised reading. The scripture really helped respect nature a little bit more beyond the fact that i should be a good steward of of the environment. I just thought that was interesting that something. That's twisted steel was originally some kind of truth but.
Weather or Not to Launch
"Before any rocket launch a status check known as a go nogo poll helps monitor operation and readiness status. This is innovation now bringing you. Stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shaped the future in the hours prior to a rocket launch flight controllers monitor various systems including weather. Come rain or shine. Weather is checked at more than fifty locations along the rocket. Ascent track over north america before the launch can proceed. All controllers are queried for a go. Nogo status based on specific do not launch criteria weather conditions like winds of more than thirty miles per hour at the top of the launch pad would constitute a no-go signal weather disturbances thick clouds or lightning observed during the thirty minute window prior to launch. Could it best mean a delay in the countdown probability of a weather violation is calculated for each location based on the limits established for a safe launch. If the weather falls outside those flight rules or isn't forecast to improve by lunchtime flight. Controllers have no choice but to give a no go for launch while hoping for fair weather as the next launch window draws near
Susan Robertson How to Supercharge Your Creative Thinking by Outwitting Your Instincts
"I'm susan robertson and i'm an innovation strategist for fortune. Five hundred companies. Thanks for joining us today. I'm going to teach you about how the supercharge your own creative and visionary thinking outbidding your instincts. I'm gonna show you how to overcome major creative thinking roadblock that you probably don't even realize you have all humans suffer from a mental shortcut called negativity bias. The negativity bias is the phenomenon that negative experiences have a higher impact on our thoughts feelings and behaviors than positive experiences. So we're actually much more motivated to avoid negative. Then we are to seek out positive and this constant drive to avoid negative. Dramatically affects our thinking in ways. We don't realize because it's all happening subconsciously to illustrate the negativity by a little more. Think about this. If you believe someone had stolen twenty dollars from you. How angry do you think he would be now. Think about if you randomly found twenty dollars in the street. How happy do you think you would be. There's tons of research that shows that due to the negativity bias. We're much angrier about losing twenty dollars than we are happy about finding twenty dollars. Even though the rational value of the money is exactly the same. And that's the negativity bias. The reason this negativity biased is a roadblock to creative visionary thinking is because our brains interpret any uncertainty as danger and the immediate sub-conscious result is to try to avoid that danger ultimately. It's a survival instinct. Thank for a minute about way. Back in our prehistory when our ancestors still lived in caves. Let's imagine a little cave boy will call him grog grog. Here's a wrestling over in the bushes. He thinks i wonder what that might be. Any trots over to investigate it was a giant reptile and unfortunately grog is dead. Now think about a little cave girl. We'll call her lucy. Lucy here's a rustling over in the bushes to but listen. Thanks ha bat. Might be danger. And she runs away and ultimately lucy lives to pass on her jeans to all of us so us are descended from people who ran away from uncertainty and that instinct to assume uncertainty is. Danger is alive and well in all of us today. Our immediate subconscious reaction to any uncertainty is to assume it might be danger. We have a really common phrase that we all say when we hear or think of a new idea that very effectively kills new ideas instantly and that phrase is yes but whenever we hear a new idea or even think of ourselves our brains instantly focus on all the potential dangers. Yes but it's too expensive. Yes but it will take too long. Yes but the sales team won't like it. Yes but it won't work in our existing t system and on and on the problem with this is that it's exceptionally easy for us to identify lots of reasons why any idea might not work and it results in us most ideas before we ever even examined. If there's anything good we just reject them the moment we discover a potential problem because that yes spot is laser focused and lightning fast. The sba is so common that we don't realize how poisonous it actually is but it effectively squashes all creative thinking it. Squashes your own creative thinking when you say it or think it and it really squashes in a creative thinking from your team when they hear it from you so you need to wipe it out of your vocabulary seriously just hit delete on the yes but and that sounds like it should be easy but actually it's quite difficult because you have to circumvent an instinctive sub-conscious instant process that goes on in your brain. So that's the bad news. The negativity bias is never going to go away for any of us but the good news. Is we absolutely can retrain our brains to get around it. And i'm going to show you a neuroscience hack that will help you defeat your negativity bias. Time i call this thinking tool. Gps thinking and gps stands for great problem solving the trigger to know when you need to turn on your gps thinking is when you hear or think or say yes but when someone has an idea and you have to make a practice of noticing that yes but trigger by the way now that you're aware of it you're going to be shocked at how many times you say it or hear it every day. Once you've recognized that subconscious but process has kicked in. You have to now interrupt it with the conscious. Gps process. I'm going to give you the three steps of the gps process. And then i'll give you an example to illustrate step. One is g great. The first thing you want do is list anything. That's potentially good about the idea. What's interesting what's valuable. What's getting toward the goal. What's new were different about it. And this g great part is the part that your brain will naturally skip if you let it so you have to not let yourself skip this step g. Great step number one then step. Number two is the p. problem. Which is where your brain has been trying to go but instead of simply stating the problem. There's a critical difference here and that critical differences. You need to flip that statement into a how to question so instead of saying it will cost too much instead you say. How can we make it more affordable or instead of saying it will take too long instead you say. How can we do it. In the time that we have to p problem articulated in the form of a how to question. And then you move onto s solving. So now you solve for those problems you found in the idea by changing the original idea but keeping something about it that you thought was great from g great list. I'm going to give you an example. So let's say you mentioned to your friend you've been feeling a little extra tired lately and doesn't seem to be due to lack of sleep and your friend says Have an idea for you. Take a break every day in the middle of the day and take a two hour walk. That's what i do. And it seems to really help and your brain instantly focuses on all the yes buts in that idea. All the potential problems. Yes but i don. Tom i have too much work. Yes but i have to help kids with their homework. Yes but i have to have dinner ready. You focus on all the problems. That's your negativity bias kicking in and it starts with yes but so once you've realized that the yes bet is kicked in you go through the process in g great. You list anything about that idea. That might be good. Well exercises good. Taking a break during your workday is it. You'll be more focused when you come back to the work and you'll feel more refreshed so there are things in that idea aspects of that idea. That are good. And that's what you want to draw out in the g. Good step and once you've done that you move to step two p. Problem and you articulate those problems now in the form of a how to question so instead of simply saying i don't have time instead you say. How can i find time for exercise or you might say. How can i find time to take a break in my day or you might say. How can i find more time to relax. So i can sleep better so that. Step two problem but articulated in the form of a how to question and the you move on to step three which is solving and you solve for those problems by changing the original idea so you might say the the problem you wanna saw four is how to find more time in your day for seven exercise so you might say well. I don't have a two hour block. But i could find a few fifteen minute blocks and in those fifteen minute walk. Take a couple of laps around the house. Or i could run up and down the stairs five times. So you've changed the idea. You've you've moved away from a to our walk and you've modified the idea to be a few fifteen minute walk so you've solve for the problem but you kept something that you thought was good. Which is both exercise breaking your day. So that's the gps process. I'll quickly repeat the steps g good. What's potentially good in the idea. Knowing it's not finished p. problem articulated as a how to question and ask solution solve for those problems by changing the original idea but keeping something that you thought was great

"Welcome to film spotting with the chicago. Tribune's michael phillips. I'm josh larsen a happy new year to you michael to to josh. And how was downtown chicago treating you. This is your first new year in a new place to live this. Yeah it's been about six months since we've been down here but yeah the first official winter.

Thank you very much for filling in this week. I i'm guessing that adam is off really studying his movie trivia You were with us. Michael last weekend's trivia spotting contests his team.

More EMP mp3
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kent chrome yesterday. I painted a dark picture. Should the earth's be hit by a solar flare containing electro magnetic pulses. I listed the following points affected by. Emp the power grid would go down. There would be no heaton no electricity. Atm's all online banking debit credit. Cards would be shut down. The supply chain would stop creating a shortage on foodstuff and no internet last on the list. I mentioned cars. Most cars would no longer work. Today's podcast is what you could do to protect. Your way of life should emp. Rain down. and i'll start with cars. The conventional wisdom. Is that if your car relies. On any delicate electronics it would be toast in the wake of emp attack or solar flare. This is origin of that idea. Cars built during and after the nineteen eighties are not. Emp safe however real world testing with the mp simulators has yielded mixed results regardless of which camp you fall into the bigger issue is that after a large scale. Emp flare or devastating. Coronal mass ejection. As i like to call it. It is very likely that fuel production distribution systems would be knocked off line so in the absence of some type of alternative fuel source. You would very likely find yourself stranded even if your car were to survive in. Emp in a study released two thousand four. The emp commission subjected thirty seven different cars and trucks to simulated emp and found that none of them suffered permanent crippling damage. Although the results were somewhat mixed the study subjected vehicles to simulate emp attacks both while shut off and while running and it found that none of the vehicle suffered any ill effects if the attack occurred while the engine was off the attack or the solar flare occurred while the vehicle were running some of them shut off while other suffered other effects like aronie s plinking dash lights. Although some of the engines did die when subjected tune emp each of the passenger cars tested by the emp commission. Did start back up. The study findings suggested that ninety percent of the cars on the road in two thousand four but suffer no ill effects at all for many. Emp while ten percent would either stall or suffer some other ill effects. That number has no doubt gone up in the intervening decade says. There are more cars on the road today. That make you self delicate electronics. But none of the vehicles tested by the emp commission suffered permanent damage. There are few possible reasons why the electronics in our cars may be a little bit more robust than we give them. Credit for the first. Is that the electronics. And cars and trucks are already somewhat shielded and they also tend to be a little more robust. The most consumer electronics due to the harsh conditions are subjected to while on the road another factor. That may help protect their electronics. In a car is that the metal body of the vehicle can act as a partial faraday cage. This is why you could survive your vehicle being struck by lightning. That's also why your car radio. Antennas are located outside rather than inside vehicle. Of course your car isn't a perfect faraday cage or you wouldn't be able to make and receive phone calls. We could assume the your car has a better than fifty fifty chance of surviving exposure. Emp the real issue is fuel would become less accessible. But let's leave cars on the road for now and look a communication simply. There wouldn't be any of the casual cell and landline phone calls. We'd like to make why cell towers landlines should be fried. But you notice. I said casual calls. Communication would fall to ham radio. But only those hams that were operated by generator. A battery that had been protected by faraday cage. Of course that begs the question. What the hell is a faraday cage and why would it protect discontents from emp. A faraday cage is an enclosure used to block electromagnetic fields. These cages often look distinctly. Well cage like solemn or simple as chain link fences or ice pales others use a fine metallic mesh regardless of their exact appearance. All thurday cages take electromagnetic radiation and distributed around the exterior of the cage. However your microwave can be used as a faraday cage. It might be big enough for a car or motorcycle battery if you have one of those very old like one thousand nine hundred fifty ish. Refrigerators were lead line. You could use it as a faraday cage and costly protect generator or car battery forgetting for a moment that you won't have access to fuel for your car. You won't be able to use a cell landline. Keep in mind. That country's gridwood down no electricity in your tap go dry. If you have a well you could use a bucket to retrieve water. Woodstove would provide warm possibly heat for cooking. The thought of cooking reminds that unless you have been stocking food. There would be nothing to cook in an extremely rural area. You could hunt maybe poach a cow but then can you feel dress an animal that large you know how to build a smoke house while you get water manually from your well heat cook with woodstove end up living off. What you hunted down. Storing access meat and a smokehouse. House you bill. With the hammer and nail power tools wouldn't be affected by emp but then faraday cage to protect power source for your power tools.
Use Lighting to Make a Dramatic Statement in Your Yard
"One of the things you wanted to remind everybody about his not to forget about lighting features when it comes to planning your landscape tremendously so mark. I have lighted my gardens over a very long period of time and then done same for others. there was the day when there were not any solar lights or very very very few that you did have to wire the whole thing and certainly that is still an acceptable way of doing things. It's it's far more permanent. And so on. However i have gone After the old electrical system Got to say well boondoggle the couple of times. I went to the soldiers. And i'm having good luck. The its it's less light but it's also significant amount of light on the ground or to be seen from a distance There are all kinds of solar fixtures I have found several of well many of mine to be in their fourth year at this point so even though they are not particularly expensive. There are twenty two in my backyard from Walk pathway lights to the edge of the patio lights then some that are simply outlining the edge the bids. I have several that. Are you put in the ground. And then turn the head upright so under light. Three different small trees It it is not something that you look at all night long however some of them can last that long but in the evening when there's snow on like we have here a while back now. The interesting part of that was the day of the snow. There was plenty of late and charged them all up so the next morning and that evening there was a good bit of light under the snow and the following day. The snow is deep enough. They didn't get much light at all so there was not much deceive however One particular. Plant that i looked at Whenever we had that last snow it was under. The light was under lighting so it was sending late minimal light but it was sending it down the snow and then up under the branches of a little kind of a a low spreading plant and each of those little limbs twigs and all had about an inch of snow on them. That would handle that then. It stayed cold enough for. I think two days. If i remember right that they stayed that way and then to be to be night lighted to be dutiful in the daytime And you don't need to shovel a path of that thing. You can see it while you're sitting by the fire in the evening if you're looking out right but lightning is a significant advantage in terms of the visual and then on certain walkways and i was at home the other day where. The walkway is sharply angled relatively to narrow and so on and to have some pathway lights there to help conduct people's walk into the house would be very welcoming and then sometimes had a turning point like that you can add a few low shrubs under the lights that when people are leaving your driveway walking toward the house there they step into the entry situation when they come to that point in the sidewalk there directed by the lights and the low shrubs day and night up to the front door so adds to the size and nature of the entry way and is a total complement so Aiding patios lighting up under trees way back in time. I made some hanging lights that i put in a giving tree now. This was with with hooking up to the versity but being a non electricians. I decided to quit doing that when we changed homes so that i wouldn't murder myself but You can do all kinds of things. That are very very interesting. Well think about it this time of year and even to the extent. If you have a display in the store that you can work from The solar lights can be pushed into the ground on little harpoon. Like point most anytime that. It isn't frozen so you can do that now. And you'll find great enjoyment and evening even if you only look out three times in a whole evening and don't spend more than thirty forty seconds doing it. It's very worthwhile to light the yard. I even i. I have a real farm situation here right in the middle of town but i even can see the raccoons walked by between me and the lamp when they go across my backyard. That's good or bad but to to To know that you have country situation in town isn't all bad except for the destruction of the roses.

Is we tell stories all the time you know when you're catching up with friends or talking to family. It's all about sharing information in telling stories. And i think what happens is when we put ourselves in our business mode we forget that sometimes those human natural stories are what really connects best with people. And so. it's a really important tool for us to be able to attract consumers who can attract customers who will have a better understanding of what it is that we stand for and what we do. It's a way to showcase your expertise to show what it is that you are so good at that you actually went out and created a business around that skill. it's also a really good way to keep that customer engaged because for a lot of our businesses. It's not something people are buying every single day right. There might be weeks or months or maybe even years between each time that they engaged with us. So we need something worth saying in the interim so content can be a really powerful tool for attracting retaining engaging your audience and making sure that you're still top of mind. They're still thinking of us to learning from you and engaging with you when it comes time to make a purchase decision down the line do all businesses need content dues every way shape and form every type of business need content. I think absolutely you know one of the things kind of toughest. Content is a bit of a buzzword right. And so maybe some of your listeners are thinking that content means youtube channel or podcast like yours but content also includes emails that you're sending to your audience that includes the copying the imagery on your website. So you know it's everything you're doing on social media and so i don't think there are too many businesses out there that are thriving without a website without a social presence without any email list. They're generally doing at least a couple of those names. You know so we have to. We definitely have to be more aware of how we're communicating with our audience and all those different ways so back in two thousand twelve. I looked in the mirror. And i said john if you're honest with yourself like you're just not a super creative quote unquote type and i was honest with myself that i just wasn't so i decided to go down. The path of encouraging and asking and then having other individuals provide the content for me. And i was gonna be in the form of these interviews. And i've now done over twenty seven hundred interviews in past eight years and guess what like i'm relying on other people's creativity other people's content for my content distribution channel. Which is this podcast entrepreneurs on fire. So that's my question like what if we're not creative types. What if somebody in fire nations like kind of like jail delek. I'm not super creative. Can we still come up with content ideas. I have a confession jail day when you said back in two thousand twelve. I wasn't creative. I got a pit in my stomach. And i held my breath like no no. We can't have that. It's so sad because some of us in studies prove this out when we're young when we're kids. We have so many creative ideas. We are really uninhibited with sharing all the crazy things we think of. You're telling stories about dinosaur aliens that become zombies and take over your middle school. You know you. You are totally uninhibited and as we get older. We learned to ignore those things to suppress. It were afraid of being made fun of or making a mistake or failing or whatever that that fear is for you so we all have that native innate creative ability and the way. I convinced everyone that you are in fact creative is think of all the creative ways. You have imagined that things would go wrong you. There is absolutely no end to the creative solutions. You can come up with for all the reasons why something won't work or or why it's going to be difficult so we still have that skill. Usually what's lacking is a prompt or inability to activate it when you need it so when we say we're not creative. It's usually more that you you're sitting down to to achieve some goal like come up with content idea you know figure out what to say and your next youtube episode or email and you can't come up with anything on the spot and you convince yourself it's because you have no creative abilities deep in your soul anywhere So really what it is. We often lack a system. And that's what's really important is understanding that you do have that creative ability everyone does and it's more about figuring out how to activate it when you need it. It's sort of like if you think someone woke up in the middle of the night and said arm wrestle and you lost and then you're like well. I have no strength. I am a legal arm. Human being you know and that's often how we treat our creativity we give it no warning we give our brains this challenge to come up with some huge solution out of nowhere no warning and then we we count ourselves out you know and that's one thing as well that i think that a lot of people don't realize is that being creative doesn't mean you have to come up with a great idea every single day or just this stroke of brilliance every week or so it's like i can look back over my eight year career where i've generated over twenty million dollars in my business and i've come up with like three or four good ideas like i've been creative like with these ideas like just a handful of times but they've made all the difference like those two or three or four or five things again over eight years fire nation are been what has been responsible for the bulk of my success of my financial success of my brand six ass etc etc so one thing that i want to talk about next melanie as you break down a really impressive content system in your book so first off give us a little background about this book in then expound upon the system yes the the book is called the content field framework how to generate unlimited story ideas and i wrote this book because of statements made before saying that you're not creative it breaks my heart so what i wanted to do is really break down what it is that i do in my head when i'm trying to come up with content ideas i know that that's kind of my superpower is to come up with ideas off the cuff and so i wanted to put as much of that process into the book as possible so people could adopt that for themselves if it's helpful for coming up with ideas so at the core it really just means understanding that while we think of content ideas and creativity as this amorphous saying you know amuse or a lightning strike or lightbulb moment it's really just two things there's a focus so it's about something right there's a perspective or a lens through which were telling our story and then there's a format we're bringing it to life in some way like audio here or video max info-graphic whatever else so if you understand that formula that every piece of content is just a focus plus a format all you need store a laundry list of focuses in formats at your disposal and you can create combinations at the drop of a hat so that's really the goal with the book to kind of prompt to think about content ideas in that way unless you have that shared language to talk about it becomes a lot easier to say okay. I want to tell a history focused story about this particular topic. What's the best way to bring that story to life Maybe a timeline would be really helpful. It kind of gives you a step by step process to activate that creativity so that you're not just sitting at a blank whiteboard or a blank google doc and hoping

We go welcome back to lightning bolts in leather jackets. Everybody happy new year. I'm so excited for the year. Twenty twenty one because we're alive still but we made it. It's going to be a little bit different of an episode. I know it's probably a lot actually but This time it's a different kind of episode for real episode series. I talked about why be believed the church. And i mentioned that i had the opportunity and reason to leave and didn't my family didn't either so i thought maybe i would talk about that story as a as a warm up to the new year. It'd probably be two parts. Because i guess giving you some background on how this went down and the names of in to protect the innocent and also the guilty. This is a story about a town that will call village so this town was in the middle of nowhere in the mid west. And this happened just under ten years ago at the time of this publishing. So it's been a minute. And i've i've had plenty of time to reflect and think about it and perspective and so has everybody else involved and the town was small. Have i don't know what your definition of small town as but generally ten thousand or less pretty pretty small the drive like half an hour to get to a walmart s. I mean they had like little downtown area and they had their own grocery store and mcdonalds and subway and stuff but it was still pretty small. Church we're gonna call it old death call church old deaf community church. It was a good church. My parents my family we got there. My dad was children's for the family life pastor We got there and we were gonna stay there for. We thought indefinitely you know and we stayed there for about two years. It was the same years that i was going to be going to. College graduated high school. And i had no plans honestly on making friends necessarily are meeting anybody one because i was going to college to because partying is afraid that if i got close to anybody that while we leaving because that's how sometimes it felt like god worked for his greater purpose obviously but it was still inconvenient and frustrating tilly france behind on the other places we moved from so we arrive at old deaf community church in the village and it was really good. Call the senior pastor pastor james because he's guilty but because he's innocent. But i'm telling you guys this so that you know that stuff like this happens in churches not because the church is evil or bad but because people are imperfect and flawed and even when they have a relationship with god through jesus christ. It doesn't mean that they always live like it and an order for me to effectively communicate that i know how that is and how that feels. The story has to be told for two years. We were there. We revamped the kids ministry. We renovated the children's area and dad came. I think the associate pastor is probably the right term our read like basically right underneath the senior. Pastor and the senior pastor pastor. James was really awesome. Still is actually in. His family are some of my favorite people Even probably consider them family to be honest and passer. James and dad and our families did a lot of great work in the church. While you're there now depending on your church experience. I wouldn't necessarily. I wouldn't necessarily call this a small church. We had to services and we probably averaged around three hundred people total and that's that's substantial for for a lot of people especially coming from other churches where it was not that big and so it was.

And i really think we did a lot and while we were there My sisters and i made friends with with a pastor james's family and also some more kids from the church. We'll call them nate and anthony and they're still both a couple of my closest friends. We hung out and we had great times. And we iron sharpens iron and it was a really awesome we. We spent every week together at least once a week. Even when i went off to college so that you are still kept in touch with through texts and when i came home i still going out with them and it was really nice but even though the church was great in the church. Pretty sizeable The town was still small and everybody talks to everybody in this town. One of the jokes of this town was went. Something stupid happened. Were weird or out of the ordinary that no other place to put up with their response was best just the village and it was like almost cultic occulting thing like it was like it was reflex like there was one time i was driving to work with my boss and there was a golf cart on the other side of the road and it was not a golf cart. Road ilizarov robe. And you couldn't drive. There was literally law. You couldn't drive golf cartoons rip and gulfport was driving. I said guys like endangering. Everybody am boston just village for you. Know it's not it's not and maybe the village but it still wrong. I didn't grow up there a lot of people that did Just stay there. If you grew up there you don't necessarily leave. The village is the best place ever nobody leaves. We talked about the bad things. Unless the bad things or other people and it was a stronghold in this church at old so pastor james decided he was going to break it so passer. James did a sermon. Series on gossiping. And this is after a bunch of other stuff that happened where other pastors have been fired for stealing from the church fund and other stuff that's been going on. It was not good. Not things at trees leader should be doing this series tough tough on pastor james and and tough on the kardashian i think to hear it because it was it was damning but it was i mean. Gossiping is literally listed as a thin in the bible and it was not good and need to be dealt with so pastor. James dealt with it afterwards. There was summer camp and my parents had to go to summer camp because that was part of the job is stuff in life pastor and stuff and while they were camp. The elders of the church wanted to meet with pastor. James patterns would do it because he knew the de need to be there because it was supposed to be an all staff meeting so after my parents got back the met with my dad passer james and the rest of the church staff and said that they would be removing passer games from his position and giving senior pastor position to my dad who had always wanted to be senior pastor. Believed it was his calling. And my dad basically said no that's not biblical right on sticking by my friend and my spiritual authority and they gave reasons for why and the reasons were bs. I don't remember exactly what they were but.
Police warn against celebratory gunfire on New Year’s Eve in Texas
"Ahead of New Year's Eve Police warn people about the dangers of shooting gun fire into the air. In Texas, for example, gunfire on New Year's Eve killed a four year old in Maryland. Woman had a close call Brenda Lightning, Tolbert says she called police after she discovered a bullet in a bedroom at her home in buoy the day after New Year's Eve. She says the officer confirmed it was a bullet and that it had come through the ceiling. People just don't realize when they shoot a gun up that the bullet is gonna come back down on something, and that's what happened. And it was scary because had had been any other time. Had it not been covert time. I probably would have had my grandchildren over here. And they would have used one of those bedroom. Celebratory gunfire is illegal in all 50 states, and in many states, you could be charged with a felony if a bullet fired into the air kills
Revelation 12-18: Signs and Symbols
"John continues explaining his vision to us today in. Its filled with lots of signs and symbols. That means many of these things aren't literal their symbolic and while there is some debate. Now about what. These things mean if we try to figure out how to apply them to future events. John's original audience probably wasn't confused at all. They saw this vision through the lens of israel's history and as you know jewish literature loves signs and numbers and symbols so will impact some of that today. I we see a woman giving birth to a child that would rule the nations. There's a beast that doesn't like this. Who tries to put a stop to it. All she goes to live in the wilderness. Where god takes care of her. Does any of that sound familiar. Most people think this woman is israel that satan is the dragon and that the stars that got swooped down by the dragon's tail or the angels. Who joined him. War breaks out in heaven between the elect. Angels and satans angels and the elec angels win so satan and his angels are addicted. Since they can't stay in heaven they mount an attack on earth but god miraculously protects israel boarded again. Satan's angel goff to attack. God's other kids and in john's times they likely would have seen this as referring to the gentiles. Or maybe the church at large. Or maybe the remnant of israel in chapter thirteen giannis. A sea beast. It sounds a lot like the dragon. Seven heads ten horns and if you're with us in the old testament you may remember that horns symbolize kings or kingdoms there a sign of power. Everybody on earth thinks the beast is awesome. And if you're alive during john's day you're probably thinking oh right room because everyone worships this beast. Except for god's kids according to verse eight and for the jews in john's day this would be a flashback to the book of daniel when he and a few of his friends were living in babylon and king nebuchadnezzar demanded to be worshiped. So in verse eleven. John reminds his readers. How god's kids are called to respond in this kind of situation he says ear is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. The way to overcome is to remain faithful despite persecution next. John describes an earth beast. This beast has a lot of power over the people of earth and does a lot of things that are attempts to counterfeit god in his ways. It looks like a lamb at fakes. Its own resurrection. And it has people mark themselves on the forehead and the hand remember the factories. We talked about a little leather boxes with scripture and then that religious jews where that comes from deuteronomy six four through eight which says eero israel the lord our god the lord is one you shall love the lord god with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might and these words that i command you today shall be on your heart you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as front litz between your is the beast counterfeits this with his own name instead of the name of god and remember how in hebrew every letter of the alphabet has a number assigned to it. The beast name is spelled with the letter. Six six six which also happens to be how you spell out the name of nero the roman emperor so this probably isn't literal. It's probably representative of who you worship. There are other ways to interpret this through a modern lens but if we look at it through the lens of john's readers they likely would have understood roamed be babylon two point which we already know from i peter five and they probably would have seen this hand forehead business as representative of who you belong to are you mark. With god's name or rome's we're in jerusalem in chapter fourteen. And jesus is there with a one hundred and forty four thousand which again maybe a precise number. It is probably symbolic of a much larger number. These marked with god's name on their foreheads and probably not literally they sing and worship god then three angels show up with three messages angel number. One says worship god because judging is coming angel number two says babylon is fallen. Angel number three says those who worshipped the beast. Instead of god will hit god's judgment and everlasting punishment and again. John reminds his readers in verse. Twelve year is a call for the endurance of the saints. Those who keep the commandments of god and their faith in jesus despite the attacks of the beast god has the final. Say some angels assist. Maybe jesus in beginning to work out justice and vengeance on the earth by the way. John says these angels come out of the temple in heaven yesterday and today. We've seen three references to this temple in heaven. Some believe the earthly temple was a literal replica of a temple in heaven and simply the word temple is just a reverence to god's dwelling place in general and this may or may not be the same thing referred to in chapter fifteen as the sanctuary of the tent of witness seven. More angels. Come out carrying seven bowls of god's wrath which are also described as plagues. Some of these plagues might remind you of what we saw. A longtime ago in egypt sores on those who don't worship god the season the rivers and springs become blood the sun scorch and burns people then darkness than the river dries up and the enemies of god used their demonic powers to perform signs just like barros magicians then before the seventh bowl the armies at the world gathering the planes of armageddon on our trips to israel we stand on mount carmel and look over that patch of land in john's day. It served as the crossroads of the world kind of like the atlanta airport and while the armies are gathered there. The seventh angel pours out his bowl of earthquakes. Fallen city sunken islands crumbling mountains lightning thunder and one hundred pound. Hailstones and god makes babylon or rome. Drink the cup of his wrath

Still restricts gathered together in church to a certain amount of a certain amount of people right like thirty finger fifty or less and just like not happening at all and Before married served in her church in against department. I'm been serving in the department of my church. Since i was a kid since i was ten and and i was serving in. The kids are in the area at the church when the pandemic happened There was no kitsch might because had to sit in to an adult service which is fine but the kids the future you know and we tried really hard to make river of life have kids ministry that masters the kids in a way that makes them feel like god has a plan for them and loves them and protects them and wants the best for them to be their friend so when we couldn't have that in person data along and the idea that we can make videos and do it that way. So is the book the plate and we made videos on youtube call kid's life and if you starts kids life on youtube and there's like so many things that come up even if you spell it the way that we do with z. And so if you wanna check it out go in the show notes and the link is in there in in the description to the youtube channel. I took time and i. I made a theme song with garage band. And i we i use our iphones to shoot it and we have a tripod adapter for the iphone and we find moving that everything and we we do. We do like a lesson and we do like a game or activity or challenge you know and we do make animal that had like different characters from the bible or different guy ours on point you know like. He's like this sickly looking weird looking kid also and i've been going through an. It's another another thing where the holy spirit has struck me at. What am i gonna say. I gonna say to the kids this week about the air about trusting in god or about father's day or mother's day are east halloween. Explain easter two kids like because we can use curriculum. We can read the bible story about. How do we explain that. Jesus came to earth and died for us. Why would he do that. So it's just been really awesome to do all these different lessons and and make the videos and have a lot of fun doing atlanta so much fun doing these kids and it's work you know but we've got down to a size now where it doesn't take more than three hours to do this. I would say it takes less than that. But i'm overshooting probably some somebody else take longer than others but just the way that we can work together and bounce off of each other. It's really cool like our onscreen chemistry really fun. I i think it's one of my favorite things. Come out of twenty twenty and the krona fires only happened. We were able to be a part of it because we were willing like we had to be going into podcast just like willing to do anything for the lord. It's only my favorite. It's one of the things. I look forward to every week. Doing those kids like video editing publishing in watching it with atlanta mom and dad and my sister is an and stuff to see them reacting look on their faces and it's got more views than i expected to doesn't have like thousands or anything. I'm not even sure. It has hundreds. But it's still got more than i expected and i know that the holy spirit is using hit wherever being watched. That's that's my wrapped twenty twenty. I know it's been a rough year for a lotta people. But i know that twenty twenty one honestly could be just as bad if we look at it that way or we could be willing to serve god however he needs us to serve and see what happens next. That's all we've got for you guys to this time we'll see in the near until then this is victor's asano encouraging you to be a bolt of.

Fm to get started the other things that was brand new to us in the twenty twenty was when everything kind of hit the fan and we had to go like quarantine and stuff in march We both started working from home. Which was definitely a switch. Because i've never technically work from home before in this job that i currently have. It's been interesting to see the changes from working from home especially together on both in the same house and working together recess bending over time together. You know when we're off work but when we're both home you know then we can interact with each other and each other whatever while still working. You know our respective jobs at school. That was going to school right now at the same time. It's been really. It's been really working for hamas excellent haas i love it i do miss the camaraderie of of The co workers and stuff. But i love that i can. I can just like my computer and look over at least like right. There really cool you know Also makes it makes like meal. Prep really easy. In the commute. Went to eight seconds which is really nice as been really nice. I love working from home. I know eventually we might have to stop doing that out. No i think. I think he's doing. I know my community shorter than most people's the actual building so If they if they do keep working problem even after pandemic. I might draw this stroz to anyway. Because i don't live very far away from the workplace. But i do. I do like that. We as a company like as a group of employees have shown that we can effectively do what they said. We couldn't do from home. we can do it. You know which is really really nice and obviously not every part of the job can do from home. Certain positions at our company need that people. Actually there in person. But when i'm just sitting there definitely computer can do that from anywhere. And i think the actually kind of proved that for a lot of companies a lot of people. I think that's pretty cool. My wife's career not so much. She's done a excellent job kicking. Button digging names about doing schoolwork and her and her job at the same time you know but the career that she wants to pursue. She is going to have to be and i hope the pandemic lessons before. She has to finalize. I'm sure that it will. But even if it doesn't she still she still crushing because he is just a personal and go what she does and when she has a plan she just does. It doesn't trump's gone so it's a working home. One of the other things that happened in twenty twenty was the podcast labels leather jackets. It's been an adventure. Starting it and the build up starting. Because i had played out. I want to plan up multiple episodes before i even started and it was a lot of growth in a lot of listening to the holy spirit and pushing me and encouraging you to do it in the first place. Because i didn't. I wanted to do it but it was also kind of terrified to start a podcast like any even listen to it. I had to say. And but i've been really pleased with the results even half even if nobody ends up fully listened to the podcast. I really enjoy getting out there and taking the time to talk about and how supposed to talk about this. That of the other as all kind of like a bible. Study for myself. When i when i planted out in an outline it and read the word wanted schools to say next. And that's been really really awesome so we're going home and podcasting bills have been part of our stretching of twenty twenty but the last one is even better amer. We're talking about that right after in vital are what's in the bible. It's time for what's in the bible again. We've covered a bunch of different superpower stuff that god has bestowed upon characters in the bob. We've talked about super speed with elijah. And we've talked about Time travel and we talked about the flight and we haven't talked about flight. We'll talk about fly also because that happens to scripture but this time we're going to cover super strength and now i know most people at least if you grew up in church stuff. You're familiar with the story of samson and actually lasts about three chapters of the book the book of judges starting thirteen and it's a really interesting story But basically it's about god giving supernatural strength to a guy named samson in order to protect israel from the philistines and a lot of people like draw. Sam selects super buff. Muscular dude Because he killed he kills a line and he Kills a killed like thousand philistines with the job one of the donkey and a spoil the whole thing if you read it. But he does a lot of incredible feats of strength you would think a- buffalo can do to be able to achieve anyway at least if he was like out significantly muscular and so my dad actually always says he thinks that but sampson looks kinda scrawny or at least not very strong because otherwise. We wouldn't be brian delilah to know the secret of samson's strength because obviously wasn't just because of his muscles so and there were obviously Perform that were significantly greater than any muscles could achieve most likely but i just thought that was interesting. The dad had thought that. Because i hadn't considered that before. But there's that and then there's also in David and the book of i samuel chapter seventeen. David is going to go fight goliath and this is not a feat of strength but he lists out things that he's done protecting his sheep the data's done presenting sheep where he kills a wild animals with his bare hands. Bears lions where he has. No business sitting all alone barehanded. He's like this thirteen to fifteen year. Old kid you know just breaking the neck of lyon. It's awesome and that i think is actually even more impressive Listen feat of strength because it's just not talking about as much you know but it's this kid like kimmel sam at the exact same thing. The bible takes a whole a whole minute to talk about samson killing the line but it just kind glazes. Over david activists. I mean because what he does next even more impressive probably why they just kinda skate over. But it's another impressive strengthen. That's it's gotta be supernatural any. There's no way. I mean you got adrenaline and stuff but a line and bears something else. Especially when you're a kid. Afraid like aspirin crazy. It just goes to show that god will bestow strength and speed and other things on those that are willing in the bible. I don't see why he wouldn't be able to do it today for if we have the faith in if we're willing so this has been so the most stretched. I think that i have had to be in twenty twenty one of my favorite things. Actually i think we've ever had to do and it's kind of a plug. I guess references something else that we do that you can. You can listen to our watch. But i'm going to do anyway. Because then i'm really proud of i'm really humbled and pleased to be used by the holy spirit to do this and when the pandemic happened and we couldn't go to church i'm.

Scientists study blind piano prodigy
"So often someone so young does something so amazing. You can't help but wonder how do they do that? That's what happened. The first time we heard Matthew Whitaker played piano. Matthew is a jazz pianist who is blind and since the age of 11 he's been performing around the world. He's been called a Prodigy. And is Sharon all fancy first reported in February. His talent is so extraordinary. He's also caught the attention of scientists who are now studying his brain. Trying to understand his vision of music. Matthew Whitaker doesn't just play music. He plays with it. Twisting melodies, crafting complex harmonies and improvising at lightning speed. It's acoustic acrobatics performed over 88 keys. And it is not for the faint of heart. Matthew made his first appearance at the New Orleans Jazz Festival. We watch backstage with his dad. Sheer complexity and spontaneity of this sets. Yeah, like this. Look, Ma, no hands moment, make the most seasoned musician, sweat and jazz fans go wild. Spending. He plays with his shoes off so you can feel the pedals and his head turned so we can feel the crowd. It's New Orleans shots. This is Tiffany of jazz festivals. Was this a dream? It is amazing to be here like this is where jazz started. Do you get nervous before a big show like this? Honestly, what I was talking about Lois. Yeah, You know, Once I started playing I am I thought good jazz fest is a jumble IA for the senses. It's a lot of music coming out yet We negotiated our way through the thick rule of humidity, suffocating crowds. The 14 stages of music that often boil over into the fairgrounds. Can you hear all the different stages? Are you like this? Like, Yeah, Overwhelming right behind the tube. But is we walked around? We notice Matthew was able to cut through the sensory assault and identify songs in seconds is buying just salsa. Just a closer walk with you've got that song just that lady E heard like three notes, and you already know what song it is Lower. Matthew grew up in Hackensack, New Jersey. He's just happy all the time. His parents Moses in May, Whitaker say Matthew had an ear for music before he could even talk. Tell me about the first time he picked up an instrument he was playing. Uncle twinkling star, But he was playing it with both hands and that was playing the chords and the melody of the song that she had a lesson to this point. He hadn't had a lesson or anything. He was three years old, So my question was okay, who showed him how to do that? Somebody had to show Matthew. How did how to play this song and nobody showed him. Matthew Whitaker was born in 24 weeks, He weighed £1.11 ounces. His parents were told he had less than a 50% chance of survival. One of the many complications he face was red, not pithy of prematurity, a disease which can lead to blindness. I think at the time I didn't think he was gonna make it so It was just just very scary. May and Moses Whitaker watched helplessly as Matthew breathed 11 surgeries to try and save his sight. After two anxious years, they decided they didn't want Matthew to endure any more. Even if it meant he'd be permanently blind. We just felt that he was going through too much. We were going through too much because the doctors were saying it was getting any better. We say you know what? That's enough. You just We just deal with it. As it is. They told you, you might not even speak exactly. They said that he might not crawl into might never walk. Because he needed those things to see. You know most most kids they learned to crawl later in tow walk because they wanna try to get to something. Matthew couldn't see to get to anything. So a lot of his toys and stuff we had to have sounds so that he will want to cross. I want to reach to those things. Matthew did start crawling towards music, sometimes sliding up to the speaker to feel the music. No one in his family was a musician, but his grandfather bought him his first keyboard when he was three years old. How complicated for the songs he was playing early on, there was no she rides more soon, anything so they weren't that complicated. But what he was doing was complicated because most kids don't play with both hands, and they don't play the court and the harmonies and all of that, and that was doing that. He realized he's got a gift. Yes, let's get him a teacher. Yes, which was the difficult part. Why was that difficult part Because at the time we got a lot of answers what people were saying He's too young. He's three years old time or well, I don't know how to teach a blind child when you do this guy Dahlia Sack has agreed to meet Matthew Sack kisses, the director of music studies at the film in M. Dagostino Greenberg Music School in New York City. A school for the visually impaired, So we brought him over. And die a played something on the on the piano, and Matt repeated it. Then she played something else, and Matt repeated it. She said. Bring him in. We'll make the exception. Everybody. Dahlia has been teaching math you ever since. She is a classically trained concert pianist was performing a couple of recitals and the divorce Jack Piano Quintet is a piece actually for piano and Strings quartet. So there's five of us so madam, his mom came to hear. You know, the night I played. He comes in Saturday morning. I walk into the studio. And he is playing the opening of the divorce quintets, you know, And then the cello comes in, and he knew the whole thing And I, but remember Nice. Divorce. Jax Piano Quintet is a challenging piece for five musicians. Matthew was playing his version of all five parts on his piano. Can he listen to a piece of music for the first time and then play it? Does he have that ability? Yeah. Just hearing it once. Yeah, he can pretty much get it. That's insane. Yeah, there isn't saying yeah, yeah. Yeah,
The AirPods Max Review
"Review time again but this time headphones specifically the airpods max. I'll stick to one review today to stand for all the others so as usual. I'm gonna pick the verge with chris. Welsh chris says the airpods max have a luxury design. They have terrific sound quality. They're very effective at noise cancellation. But they are heavy. The lack of a three point five millimeter headphone. Jack means these are not headphones. You can use anywhere for anything and his words here. The included case is an abomination. I about that case. And then about the headphone jack and then his conclusions about the headphones themselves quote far and away. The worst thing about the airpods. Max is their case. If you can call it that which i consider generous look putting aside all the memes about looking like a handbag or bra. It's a failure on every level at functionality. And i don't know what apple was thinking. It makes the airpods max easy to recognize at a distance. Maybe that was the main goal but in terms of doing case things. It's a joke that offers virtually no protection for your five hundred and fifty dollar headphones. I wouldn't feel good about throwing this into a packed bag. The earcups could get scratched since there are so many slits in the case and something could poke through that exposed mesh canopy and the case also picks up dirt and smudges in no time. This is bad enough. Misfire that it drags down the entire product. Everyone else gets this right and it's baffling. That apple could get it so wrong. I'd expect to see many third-party cases for the airpods. Max very soon and i predict apple will sell some of those directly because this thing is just untenable another downside. No three point five millimeter. Jack the airpods. Max only have a lightning connector. So if you want higher-quality wired audio or to plug them in on a plane you've got to get a thirty five dollar cable. No putting an oxford between two iphone. Headphone dangles won't work. Ouch i can live without the three point. Five millimeter jack but to not include the cable in the box at this price rude also. It's worth mentioning that there's no passive mode for the airpods max. When they're out of juice they stop working altogether. Even if you're wired you can't use the very good clear sounding voice. Mike's on the headphones plugged in either. But the cable is good for eliminating all latency. If you want to use the airpods max. For recording or monitoring purposes and quote then to his wrap-up quote these headphones might end up a hit lately. The earbuds they share a name with but they could also just coast by the same vein as something like the homepods. Another apple product that was priced higher than the competition when released and hurt by it. If you're the kind of person that knows you'll love the airpods max. You shouldn't hesitate to go for it. They sound killer for music and movies alike and they feel like they should cost even more money. They're about as luxurious as noise. Cancelling headphones get but not as expensive as they come. But there's still no world. I would recommend the airpods max to your average headphone shopper. Especially when the airpods pro offer a lot of the same features for less many consumers will be perfectly happy. Sticking with the tried and true options from sony bows microsoft and elsewhere at the very least. It's probably worth waiting for apple music. Hd or spatial audio on the apple tv. Or for god's sake a better case and quote
Only 80's Kids Will Fear This
"You're walking along the path in the woods. Maybe you're on a hike. Maybe you're headed to a picnic. The sun is shining and the warm breeze. Ruffles your hair suddenly. You're halted in your step. Your back foot is sinking into the ground. You try to play your other foot firmly to lever yourself out now. Both feeders sinking. It's quicksand. You'll be swallowed alive. You struggle to get free but that only makes it worse you'll be sucked under in a matter of seconds except my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. Let me open. Today's topic that being things eighties. Kids were taught to be afraid of that. Aren't actually things we need to be afraid of i. This topic was voted on by supporters at patriot dot com slash your brain on facts and secondly that the research led me in directions. I wasn't expecting so the final product is as much a surprise to me as it will be to the listener. You do when your clothes catch fire and it always seemed like when not if the same thing you never see anyone on. Tv or youtube do when they find themselves doing surprise johnny storm. 'cause play. Stop drop enroll. Earning close burn you. Stop drop and roll because people burn to a message from the new jersey department of community affairs bureau virus thing if you try to tell me that a single year of elementary school passed in the eighties without the stop. Drop and roll lesson. I call you a liar. You were going to catch fire early. That much was clear but as someone who hates her home with wood and has been through two house fires and a lightning strike. Let me test that catching fire is not the inevitability we were led to believe but the lesson wasn't wrong as much as it was. Maybe a little late children's clothes and blankets catching on fire had been a common tragedy in households for centuries back in olden times when your heat and light and not a small amount of entertainment all came from some manner of flame. My mother's family actually lost a little one that way. Time and human advancement helped to drive down the frequency of juvenile incendiary casualties candles gateway to gaslight which was replaced with light bulbs and fireplaces were replaced with heat pumps the ignition sources were fewer and farther between but technology is nothing if not a double edged sword enter at the same time synthetic fabrics which rather than burning like cotton and wool would burn drip spread and adhere to skin. The truth of the matter is eighties. Babies were among the first kids to have a substantially lower risk of clothing fire incidents. Thanks to nineteen seventy five's formation of the consumer product safety act. Well actually a lot to nineteen fifty. Three's flammable fabrics act. But then i guess we should go back to nineteen forty-five end gene. Autry for those without a standing dinner reservation at golden corral for four thirty gene autry was a cowboy crooner who made his mark in radio tv and films for over three decades back in where a brand is a brand where the long hunt being celebrity. He had merch including branded cowboy costumes for all the little ones at halloween thousands and thousands of these were sold across the country. Then the tragedies began between late nineteen forty two and continuing until at least nineteen fifty four. An unknown number of children were badly badly burned. When the fuzzy fabric of the chaps came in contact with an ignition source and the entire garment would catch. It was three long years from the first incidents where people began to understand that something specific was wrong. Here that the material used for the chaps was the cause of these tragedies it was so flammable the entire outfit would go up in a matter of seconds before the child or parents even knew what was happening to react. This was the nineteen forties a time. Well before the constant global connectivity that we've been used to for twenty plus years so news of these incidents remained is located and the picture incomplete.

"I was reading I should cuz you wanted me to read it to her and I was reading something and I was like, wow, I never caught that. You know that obviously has brought it in there. But as I'm writing I didn't catch it and it was a visual it was a visceral thing that I was supposed to try to communicate and I didn't realize it until there was like wow, that's interesting. Yeah, there's a lot of things that that just thought they just make sense and you could explain it to death. Yeah a lot of times when you're working on it and you you inject that into their you're not thinking about it to death. You just like a sedan. That's true. so now we're going to take break unit. So you like my story time. I really do. Yeah. Okay. So we're going to we're going to we're going to tag team a story time. Okay. Oh boy, so I'm just tell one and you think of one that's it could be similar could not like it's a be a funny story or an inspiration doesn't matter what it is. I didn't know there's going to be homework, but but we're going to talk about going to talk about story time. So when I was younger than I am now, which is already still young. I had I was watching like different shows with my parents and some of the shows I didn't watch because they were too mature for me or whatever, you know, like some some murder mysteries are not great for like ten year olds, but there was one episode of Joe GS I or something and there was a story about it was an episode about a serial killer. And so because it was mature I didn't get to watch the episode but the words serial killers stuck in my brain, right, you know, and so like what that doesn't make any sense and I'm a murder was you know, it was ten years old. I knew what death was and what what what wrong things were about killing and stuff. So I was like doesn't mean that he killed cereal cuz serials on a live like doesn't I don't understand. So ten year old me thought maybe he kills people with cereal. You know, this is my writers bring some doubt. It's not like I'm trying to think of like how would he do that? You know like so I'm picturing like this serial killers like this megalomaniac evil scientist like off and he pulls like.

"All right, so disclaimer. I know I'm digging out about Superman pairing. The Jesus people are probably like annoyed or confused. Listen and don't worship Superman God, I worship Jesus and only Jesus. Jesus is infinitely better than Superman. He's actually real he loves you. He died and rose again for you. He wants to have relationship with you forever. Jesus is the best. However, the Holy Spirit can still speak through all forms of media and Superman almost seems specifically designed for this which makes sense. If you consider that Superman was modeled after Jesus to be an inspiration. I have the Great Depression. I'm going to give you a quote from Grant Morrison who's one of the more prominent figures of DC Comics. And this is what he says about Superman. It's as if she were man is more real than we are we writers come-and-go General generations of artists leave their interpretations and yet something persists. Something is always Superman and if you know anything about the Holy Spirit is that the holy spirit is always consistent and he can use unbelievers to still get the point across and churn up, Okay? That inspiration that's one reason and here's what I'm going to talk about next and need to hear my heart on. This is probably going to poke a little bit because you might not thought about Superman this way and what I'm going to say could be construed as heresy. You didn't understand why I'm saying what I'm saying Superman off his symbol that he was in his chest does not stand for Superman, right? Everybody should know by now canonical e, it's the Kryptonian symbol for hope Hope is one of the three things that last at the end of faith. Hope and love so says the word of God, right? And the greatest of these is love but hope is in there in Jesus Christ came down in a hopeless situation used his love and sacrifice is an act of love. To set us free and give us the hope that we could have eternal life. Now. Sometimes I worry the Superman jacket that I've talked.

"You can download the free anchor app or go to Anchor to get started. All right. So, why would I say that Superman was modeled after Jesus when she used her and Siegel were both Jewish. Well, this may surprise some people but they were completed Jews which means that they practice Christianity as well as all the Jewish Customs. They believe that Jesus was and is the Messiah and savior of all Humanity. So Superman was created by them in the great during a depression when people needed an inspiration something that was a beacon of light in this well time of depression. So and there's a lot of similarities, you know with us and Superman he was sent by father who is in heaven or the heavenlies like space, you know to Earth to save mankind his parents are Martha and Jonathan an alliteration off of Mary and Joseph. He landed in their field and the ship was kept in the barn. Which would be modern-day equivalent of you know, where animals are kept in stuff like like a manger and there's this other stuff that goes on with that like we'll get into a couple of later but he died and came back. He's off raising all these superheroes. He was the first one and everybody else started popping up. There's plenty. There's also Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. The current movie is about Superman made by Zack Snyder Zack Snyder directly stated in the internet in an interview that Superman was a christ-like character and there was no way to get around it. So that just going to embrace it and Man of Steel. I know people don't like the action movies a lot of them don't like these movies but the simple symbolism is still there and you can watch a thesis on Man of Steel on YouTube. It's like forty minutes long talks about this, but just to cover a few he's States. He's thirty-three, which is that old Jesus plus when he died and then came back because he came back Hallelujah Darrell talks about the choice of free will the choice of Free Will which is why he sent his son. Earth and Free Will is basically why we're here, you know, God created us and gave us Free Will and we can either choose to love God or choose not to love God. He also assumes the crucifix pose a lot which is like what Jesus looks like going across with his arms stretched out his legs together. There's and there's a lot of cross symbolism in Man of Steel as well. And then it got maybe Superman you have first of all the fact that Superman States, he's not just for America. He's for everybody. In fact the World Turns against him and he sacrifices himself and then when he is coming off of the rubble dead, the imagery is very similar to paintings of the Roman soldiers taking Jesus off the cross as well..

"A lot especially after reading the book by Mark Batterson. So this song all right, so we've covered a lot of stuff during this talk about God not being our President because truth is he's way more powerful than the president but he's also placed the president over us for a reason, but if he's truly play, yep. People in Authority that doesn't really matter who we vote for if God is going to choose it. Anyway, then why would we vote? Well, let's talk about why point of voting first off God chooses whoever he chooses because he sees potential in them for him to do something great in the world or country further his kingdom whether he does that through allowing the negative things to happen or encouraging the positive things to happen part of them up to whoever he's appointed. Like I said a Godly Authority comes with Godly responsibility and if they don't follow the responsibility then but if they've already established who they are just like he used the kings of Babylon just use President Trump President Obama President Bush or President Clinton just like he might use Biden he can use whatever candidate he deems necessary and he can use the negative things to still further his glory bought a previous term. Hillary Clinton could have been elected president and she and my opinion would have been a terrible choice because she would have furthered the agenda of abortion and other things that are not of a god Standard. However, if she was elected that would mean she was chosen by God to be elected and he would have used all those negative things to further his kingdom here on Earth because when the darkness grows it becomes opportunity for light to be even brighter. It's not a New Concept but sometimes we need to be reminded of that. So then why vote if God is going to further his agenda no matter what. For sure where we stand is if you vote for the things in people that you know stand for things that aren't Godly. Okay. So if you know in your heart candidate Biden is going to try to walk further the abortion clinics and make it more legal and more prevalent and going to further the murder of unborn children and you vote because everything else that he says seems great, but that part off that Porsche is the Lesser evil. God will hold you accountable for the support of the murder unborn children. Well, then he's going to hold you accountable for Chumps racism Victor. We'll get to that so really quick. Let's talk about President Trump and his allegedly wage. Racist ideals I don't believe the President Trump is a racist at the very least as a businessman or by I think that he didn't get to where he is doing all the other things that people have accused him of doing all this stuff has happened and it only come to light during his presidency and during his electoral campaign and that seems awfully suspicious to me. I think part of it is because he's used for The Unborn life and he's for Israel and the enemies going to fight against that with as much lies or as much muddled truth as he can but let's say he was guilty in the past of racism..

"Started. So. Before we begin all that stuff, I want to set up a story and story. Happened to in July. And my wife and I. Were celebrating our first anniversary. We were walking down the streets of Asheville because that's where. We chose to spend her first year anniversary together now but if you're listening to this in the future then. Coronavirus was still happening at that time. And we were wearing masks and all the stuff in it was there was still a lot of protesting going on there weren't. And there was not. Over protesting in the moment, but we're walking around we saw a lot of. Different things. A lot of graffiti, a lot of signs. A Lot. Of People. And I saw a slogan that I I thought I had seen online. And I. Put It away because I I didn't think that I'd seen it I didn't think I'd read it correctly. And I saw written on. A couple of walls. In Asheville went down downtown Asheville and then I heard it of course later. So it confirmed for me that this is a real slogan in Logan Red. White silence is. Violence. Now even if you not not silence. White silence. Is Violence. Even, if you didn't want to talk about the fact labeling it, white silence is already. Just. As racist as the racist you're trying to fight against. Let's talk about the rest of that problem. This is what made me really mad and started making me think that. There's a different story behind just the fact that a black guy got killed by white cops and people are upset about racism police brutality white silence is violence just because I want to wait and see if I've got all the facts straight means that I'm racist or perpetuate violence against of color. That's nonsense and matter of fact, if you reacted a right away. And you perpetuate the narrative that staying silent is violence against black people guess what you're reading the Bible and God's work because here's what James One thousand nine hundred twenty says. My dearest brothers and sisters take heart be quick to listen. But slow to speak and be slow to become angry for human anger is never a legitimate tool to promote God's righteous purpose. Now, that's not saying you can't be angry. There's difference between human anger and righteous indignation. Right, but that Bible really says be slow. To speak and slow to become angry and quick to.

"Has been story time. So. What about these songs that we want to have played in worship service or that we really liked the we hear on spotify or the radio. But. Don't get played and we got all offended. Why did we get? Why did we get offended about that? Why do we not like our pastor are worship leader or the sister sandpaper who suggested they? You know him that now gets played thirty nine times why we get offended about that stuff. My here's what. The song is important to you. But not necessarily. Other people that's how it feels right and so then this makes you feel not important and nobody likes to feel unimportant. I, understand that you know. I mean certain songs I would like to have played why church aren't going to get played not because they're not worship songs just because this not wear our church is in their walk with Christ as a corporate whole. Right they need other song. The Holy Spirit already tells are worship leader and our senior pastor what. Songs needs to be played. And I'm not GonNa step on Holy Spirit's toes. Because, I, want my song played and this doesn't mean. Right, if the songs don't get played. This doesn't mean you can't worship because guess what. Worship. Is Not about you. I know that a simple statement. But sometimes, we forget you know it's easy. Forget especially when. We want something different. It's easy to forget that.

"So we're going to settle the flame wars on the Internet, the shouting matches on Instagram and other social media places that you plebs go talk about why your worship songs better. We're going to settle it. So we're GONNA start off like I said with the obvious songs that aren't actually worship songs. Songs that are mostly about us. Now. There are exceptions to this and we'll cover that but I'm about songs that are like encouraging. But. Don't tell the glory of God splendor. Okay. Song. That has too much of I or knee in it. Then, it's not really a worship song. It's encouraging can lift you up and got can use these. Write most songs most songs by skillet. Are. Not Worship Songs. Now. Stars and you are my hope great songs that are worship songs. But most of the songs I, love skillet. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. I love John Cooper, I listen to his podcast cooper stuff. It's awesome. But most the songs you're not going to hear in church. Because they're not worship songs for corporate purposes. However, the Holy Spirit can still use these to cultivate a lifestyle of worship and or encouragement. Right hero invincible lions. Those are all great songs. The Holy Spirit has used in my life to help me. On his on my walk with him. But you're not gonNA, catch me singing them onstage in church. Now there are exceptions about this song talk about choosing to sacrifice like a song. So. We'll I. that's my favorite worship songs ever. Because, it's got a lot of in me in it. But for one thing that's also got a lot of God and a two, and secondly it's a declaration as a conscious act of willing ourselves to worship with our lives. If creation still obeys, you still will I if we could grasp that as a whole as church. So that's a worship song and we don't think that song enough in church. And we'll get to that in a minute but. Also secular songs aren't worship songs. Now. If you WANNA play highway to hell during like a Halloween special or something like that. Then that's probably fine. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA lift your hands or closer to it. That's for different kind of purpose. Right like I said the Holy Spirit still use these Either Tiger is a great pump up song for me when I'm working out when I need to keep my body as an in shape temple of the Lord but I'm not gonNA inservice. Now, there are songs that are worship songs..
