Fresh update on "micah" discussed on NFL Live

"Alice dealing with COVID issues is key pieces of their coaching staff won't coach including their head coach. More on that in a moment with a live report. Welcome to NFL live tisha on Johnson, Darren Orlovsky here, Marcus spears. Also with us today is swag. It's Adam Schefter in just a minute. Later also, what we're hearing and thinking about Russell Wilson's future with the Seahawks. But I mentioned Adam, let's start by checking in on some of the injury questions surrounding tonight's game as chefy joins us. Let's begin with the saints Adam. Taysom Hill has been nursing a foot injury since Jameis Winston went down to the season. Tonight, the night we see hill under center. He will make his first start at quarterback tonight, Laura, a lot of people wondering what Taysom Hill can do at the quarterback position tonight we begin to find out with him behind center behind an offense that will look different for a variety of reasons, but Taysom Hill is somebody that's got a lot of support and that organization and tonight we begin to find out why, but he will have to do it without his star stand out running back Alvin Kamara nursing a sprained MCL not expected to play tonight will be an active and that will mean a heavier workload than normal from Mark Ingram, Tony Jones, whichever backs they decide to try to replace Alvin Kamara with not easy to replace him and not easy to play not only without him, but also both starting offensive tackles to run Armstead, Ryan ramczyk, they're out Marcus. Davenports out seats have a whole host of knee injuries and other ailments to overcome tonight on a short week on Thursday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys. I mean, almost makes you say who's in with all these players that are out for the saints, major injuries, they're in New Orleans. Adam with us all show long with more. And let's get to the other side. Our attention to Dallas. They've had some issues of their own to deal with, start with their head coach, Mike McCarthy will not coach tonight as he has tested positive for COVID-19. So Dan Quinn will head to the sideline fill the role as head coach a role of course he recently had with the falcons let's go to our field report brought to you by Windows 11 and Intel as we bring in Edward from New Orleans and Ed, you spoke with Quinn earlier today. What do you have to say about tonight? Yeah, just in the last 45 minutes, he's replacing Mike McCarthy as you said tonight. And McCarthy spoke to the players and their final team meeting via Zoom. And he emphasized being the more physical team and playing complementary football. As for Amari Cooper Quinn said he looks like himself after missing two games because of COVID, but that the cowboys don't expect to have him play as normal role as a number one receiver. They want to build him back up physically. So my sense, Laura, is that they're going to use him where they think he can most impact the game and then see how he's responding physically and then either reduce or expand his involvement based on that observation and the player's interaction with coaches and training staff as the game evolves. How about DeMarcus Lawrence? What do we know about his status expectations for tonight? Yeah, quin told me he's been counting the days awaiting the return of DeMarcus Lawrence. And he said, we're all so damned excited to see him and you know they look forward to the energy and the physical toughness that he should provide, even though he too will play on a limited snap count. Quinn said they want to build him back up. Use them in situations where you can have the most impact on the game so I would expect that means third down pass rushes, red zone snaps initially. You know, the cowboys have Lawrence the highest paid defensive player franchise history returning tonight. They expect Randy Gregory return from a calf injury that's kept him out four games as soon as next week. And Micah Parsons hasn't been on the field with both of those guys since his very first NFL game week one, that should allow Quinta to maximize Parsons flexibility. And I know that as much as he values parses as an edge rusher, he really believed he could best impact the game playing on the second level, and then blitzing and passing situations. I can also envision quin having The Rookie spy Taysom Hill in certain situations tonight. Laura, I asked Parsons about his expectations about what happens when Gregory and Lawrence returned and he said, you know what? I told him, they can have all the chip blocks and all the double teams I've been seeing. He said, healthy, and able to fully go. I feel bad for those quarterbacks. And I doubt he really means that. Yeah, that's great. And I do want to point out too, DeMarcus Lawrence, since we came on the air. I mean, just like seconds ago, has officially been activated off of IR thanks to Ed with the latest there from New Orleans. And we're just talking about it with Parsons. The cowboys should get a defensive boost which Florence Micah Parsons and the unicorn Micah Parsons I should say very good job there. He really is a unicorn for this defense. He's the only player in the NFL with a 150 plus snaps in both coverage and as a pass rusher. And when he does not, when he does rush the passer, no one has had a greater impact. In fact, when Parsons is part of the pass rush, Dallas defense allows a QBR of just 23 gets pressure on over 40% of the dropbacks. That's equivalent to the best defense in the league, both departments, and it's also better than the browns defense with miles Garrett, the Steelers with TJ watt and the rams with Aaron Donald. So I think we should just throw that picture of Parsons with the unicorn horn for the rest of the show because it's probably illustrates it, Marcus. Let's talk about Parsons for a second. Now that Lawrence is back in the mix, how should the cowboys be using him? Yeah, a lot in the same ways. I thought we was going to finish the damn show, would you read off accolades? 'cause we could talk for an hour about how good he is. But the bottom line is when you look at DeMarcus coming back, it's just flexibility for Dan Quinn like he talked about in the second level being on the first level. I do not imagine them taking Michael Parsons off the edge completely, especially in third down situations. But it's also how you use them. Finding matchups then quin did a phenomenal job earlier in the season. You see here against the Carolina Panthers. He's on that second level. You get a matched up on the back. That's going to be a win for Michael Parsons. He's too athletic for you to try to cut him and you're not strong enough at the bank, but very rare. This is rare for players in the NFL. He makes the zone read, but this ability right ear. To run jaylen hurts down. You can use Michael Parsons in a lot of ways. The correlation between what I just showed you with Jalen hurts. Obviously, we know they gonna try to use Taysom Hill leagues in this game. They are not going to make them a dropback passer. 11 is going to have his work cut out for him, but he's looked like he's been up for the task every week. You know, so you're talking about Taysom Hill's legs. He is dealing with the foot injury, though key from the saint side in this offense, how should they try and approach this game from a scheme standpoint? Well, it won't be traditional Sean Payton. Right. It'll be more like what they did when they win three in one a year ago would take some heal. Surprisingly, he's completed 30 73% of his passes, which is, I don't know what that means. I don't know if that means screens or what it means. It's just there. You're going to run draws with him. You're going to run sweeps direct snaps to the quarterback. And every now and then there's a smoke and mirror play to confuse you, whether it's a reverse pass, where there's some sort of flea flicker. That's how you get up on the cowboys with a guy like this because he's not a traditional drop back passer. Yeah. He didn't have the necessary weapons to allow him to be that. Look, he's a hell of a football player, but in this situation right here, the deck is stacked against him. If I was Sean Payton, I would want to live in first down second down first down. Everything I can do to get there 'cause the cowboys have the second best third down defense in football and I'm playing with my two offensive tackles. Now, I think it's gonna be forcing Dallas to play as much 11 on 11 football as you can or at least making them think that you're doing that. Maybe extra offensive lineman comes into play tight end for you, even though those tackles are out. I think that's got to be. And then the reality is this. This is not me being mean. You got to figure out where number 30 is. Anthony Brown, for Dallas the secondary. I got to check him early on in this game. If they're going to play man coverage, how many different ways can I get Marquez Callaway over there? Trace one Smith. And guys that I feel like can go win. He's coming off a game where he struggles. And I want to just check where his confidence is and where his ability to play man coverage is..

"micah" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"Few did give us the background there. Yes so what led up to. that is after. I'd come to this. Saving faith and revelation through the book of hebrews at the mormon church was not what it claimed to be I had actually publicly professed in front of about forty or fifty mormon missionaries. My new found faith. In jesus christ so as a missionary who is concluding my two year mission trip i was supposed to stand up and share my testimony in my testimony had radically changed from the beginning of my mission to the end and so i actually publicly professed that i believe that jesus was all that i needed that was saved by his grace and not by works and now new for the first time in my life that i had right standing with god and the forgiveness of my sins through the shed blood of christ and so as a result of that public testimony my mormon leader ended up calling me and said we need to. We need to chat and so that was when the two of us went into a meeting and we talked about three hours. And i very candidly shared with him. The things that i had been reading in the bible that i'd come to know that salvation was independent of the mormon church of any religious institution but totally dependent on christ alone told him that i no longer needed the mormon prophet or any earthly man to mediate between me and god. There was one god and one mediator in that is christ and so all of these things. I came forward To him and he responded by telling me that was filled. The spirit of the devil I was being deceived by satan. And then he threatened excommunicate me in my mission was terminated. Three weeks early. And at that point i then is a twenty one year old Mormon missionary was put on a plane and sent back to utah and had to face my family and my friends okay. What was that like facing your family and your friends when this is over so it was terrifying. Because i didn't know how they were going to respond. But praise god they. They had very soft hearts toward me. My parents i think were very confused. But they never Ostracize me. And i think that they were curious as to. Why is there mormon son who had been so dedicated to the faith. I was willing to walk away from that. And what was more valuable about this message. That i had found in the bible and so i gave them the challenge. Read the bible. I give that to my siblings to my parents and And just encourage them to go to the source. I actually ended up leaving utah immediately. And i moved back to florida. Which is where. I had served my mormon mission and my girlfriend and i ended up getting married and we discounted started our whole new walk as of christ a hand in hand recognizing that you know we had everything that we needed in jesus and then back in utah got was working in the hearts and lives in my family members Through his word. So did your parents and other family members come to the same conclusion that you did eventually. How how long did that process take so. My older brother who at the time was a senior at brigham young university in my younger sister. Who is a senior in high school. They were the first in my family to come to saving faith in jesus christ beside myself and that happened very quickly. I'd say within a few months my parents know they were so much more entrenched in in this and they also had a lot more to lose. My mom was a tenured professor at byu so professing a newfound faith in christ and not the mormon church anymore would mean losing her job her tenureship. I mean everything and so But god worked uniquely and individually in each one of their lives. My mother actually went to the gospel of john and right from the beginning. John one one in the beginning was the word and the word was with god and the word was god that that verse in and up itself contradicts the very nature of christ as taught through the mormon church and so god began to work in her heart. My father's heart as well and they've both come to saving faith in jesus now Alter the praise and glory of god. Wow gosh this stuff. It can be so hard for people whether you're coming out of a mormon faith or or muslim faith or i mean for me I was raised in the greek orthodox faith and for me. It's different because i don't think that they teach anything that is wrong but they also often don't teach what is right or even understand what is right and then if you say well i'm born again. They would say well then. You're not with us anymore. Why have you rejected. You know being greek and being greek orthodox anything. Well i haven't right we're all this is all there's only one faith we believe in the nineteen creed we believe in the same thing so it's always difficult when you go through this process where it can be difficult and god tells us inscription. Count the cost and are you willing to do that. Are you willing to lose all for my sake. And if you're willing often you don't have to lose very much in other words. You know your parents come around. And so. It's a beautiful thing to see that that happened for you. But i i want to ask. So what are the sticking points and when your mother reads john one one. What is it that so clear in mormon teaching that bumps up against what the scripture teaches. Another what are they. What are they really really clear about that. You say is antithetical to what it is to believe that the bible is the word of god so there's a few the first one is the very nature of god himself right so in isaiah forty three forty four. We know that there's only one god. And there's no other god beside him and god has been from eternity to eternity and and he is not a created being but in mormonism god is actually a man who has progressed to become god and so they believe that we as humankind can also become gods ourselves and so there is a different view on the very nature and eternal existence of god and jesus as well so in mormon theology. Jesus is actually a created being by this father. God who was once a man. I think we're at a time in this segment but We're gonna be right back talking to mica wilder. Hey folks. I'm talking to michael wilder passport to heaven. The true story of zealous mormon missionary.

"Gain the whole world but to lose his soul. So we're talking about that cost of discipleship to recognize that following. Jesus means losing the world. It means that we gained something greater in christ than anything that we will ever lose. According to the flesh. And so i recognize that i was going to have to come forward at some point about this transformation that the gospel wrought in my heart. And so i ended up coming forward to My missionary peers to my mormon leaders to my family and my friends and of course each reaction was different but God used what he did in my life to begin to plant seeds in the hearts and lives of my loved ones as well did you. I guess how did that unfold in other words did. Did you share with anybody. How what your questions were knows before you. You figure the whole thing out yourself while you're in the process of trying to figure this out. We able to share this journey these questions with people in lds community. The only person that i would say. I was really open with was actually my my highschool mormon girlfriend so when i was on my mission of florida she was a student. Byu and i was sharing with her through handwritten letters once a week. The things that i was learning through the reading of the word of god and ultimately i gave her the same challenge that that pastor had given me and that was just to read the bible like a child so She was the personnels most comfortable sharing these things with and she actually to was born again while she was a student. Byu she's now my wife alicia we've been married for fifteen and a half years and so she was the first person But i didn't really understand what was happening as it was happening until i got to the very end. And so is always going. Through this process i never foresaw that. It was eventually leading me outside of my religious roots. I'm probably very similar. To martin luther as he began this process of investigating truth through the word of god. I don't think he ever intended to go through that process and end up leaving the faith to which she had dedicated his life. And i think it was very much similar to me so when i finally came to that point of full awakening of my eyes opened to the gospel the grace of god then i had no choice to but to come forward to you know my friends and family and tell them what got done my life. What was there a point as you're coming to these understandings That you thought you would be able to stay in The lds mormon community in other words. We're there point where you thought you can bring the truth to them. And they'll be grateful for the clarification. Absolutely that's actually a great question. I think there was a long period of time. Where i although i was seeing these discrepancies between the mormon church and biblical christianity. I thought well. Maybe i can help. Reform it from the inside and stay in the church and and at that point i didn't even recognize the core foundation of the church itself was built on a false gospel. I thought it just needed correction. And actually the the full awakening for me came when i was reading the book of hebrews when i only had about three weeks left of my two year mission commitment and i remember reading hebrew seven through ten and it was just like god. Just remove the veil for my eyes. And i recognized that jesus is the fulfillment of all of the elements of the old law. That i was putting as the hope of my salvation right profits in temples and priesthood ordinances. And the all these things. At the mormon church teaches are essential for salvation recognized that they were all type and shadow pointing towards the fulfillment of that reality. Who is christ folks. I'm talking to michael wilder. The book is passport to heaven will be right back. I've got seven women on stony wants. She's a trend in mind. Take law secret notebook of nikola tesla with these dangerous formulas could fall into the hands of evolutionary lead.

That as you're going through this process you think like anybody or thinking. Well okay Maybe i can help reform Mormonism from within whatever discovering is true and the mormons that you know they. They revere the word of god so they should be good with this At the same time of it doesn't work out that way. When did you get the phone. Call you or have call elder wilder.

"More than five kilometers from your house at this point. Wow yeah. I've heard a lot of disturbing things going on in australia. All these kids that are being sent to a stadium apparently in without their parents consent without their parents being there. It's definitely. I've heard that that's sort of like the testing ground for the more extreme protocols that the new world order wants to put in place but i also think that like we were saying before we're entering an age of enlightenment which is why things have gotten so desperate and it's gonna reach tipping point where folks were listening to this show listening to other shows. Make a change for the better in this violent thing to do. It's totally out of know the spirit of wanting people to be healed and healing the planet because this system that we're fighting against is the primary cause of most people suffering and death in a lot of ways and i don't think that we'll ever get to utopia where suffering is eliminated. But i definitely think that there is a parasitic entity that has controlled society for many years thousands of years possibly and we're reaching a point where as human beings we're not going to fall under that spell won't be cordoned into these corrales. They've created for the past hundred two hundred years and they know that they see that coming. So this is like the death rattle as sam. Tripoli said couple months ago of the elite you know and i think you know all these sick cases coming to light with epsteins stuff and you see a lot of people stepping down from high positions. I don't think that biden's gonna last you know they. You know it's definitely we're heading towards something crazy. But i don't think that you're hopeless. I think there's a lot of hope. And i'm curious to know you know other than maybe having to make an escape. What preparations you're making towards is impending apocalypse that you know the book of revelation just trying to. I'm just trying to get book sales up. Just trying to do as many as do as much as i can to get the information out there. It's life changing. You know and. I think. I don't know i haven't i haven't hit that point yet where i'm like. This is too much for me. Move you know. But i will. I will hit that eventually and Just interested to see again. You know what they're going to do with waking that's gone on well and also i think it is sort of a fear play as well like you know the media. How much of it can we trust. And maybe that's all it is to generate fear so that those of us who would have been in this hybridization of love and light and knowledge are then warped back down to that fear vibration that's ultimately holding back the collective you know and i. I tend to think that that the spiritual energy has more to say about. What's going on in the world. Then have you ever read a bloggers. Have you ever read. A book called way of the peaceful warrior. I think that you know synchronicity quickly enough. I think that books come up for me recently but no. I've never read it. But i think rita partisans the recommend it. It's it was the first spirit. My mom put me out. It was the first spiritual book that really changed my life in that aspect. Okay to gray. Read fiction to. It's a fictionalized account of something real. Okay the check it out. The way of the peaceful warrior is there a. What's the author's name. Dan millman and elman. Okay i'm checking that out and folks listening. Where can they get your books.

"The other kind of like main non-negotiable Doctrine within mormonism is the idea that there is continued revelation. So they believe that they have. The president of the mormon church is an actual profit with the same prophetic authority as the prophets of the old testament in they have twelve apostles. They believe hold. The exclusive apostolic authority as the apostles in the new testament. Did so not only do. They claim that authority but they claim the right to give mankind the word of god and to mediate between god and man and to deliver new scripture and new revelation. Until the problem is is. You can't just go to the bible or the book of mormon you have continued. Revelation and that revelation will very often contradict revelation that has been previously given but we are asked to trust in the continued revelation. Anything else that to me is the key right because i think most christians believe and continued revelation and others. I could hear from god today. God could say to me cross the street and talk to that person that's possible but it can never ever contradict scripture if in any way contradicts the scripture. I know it's not revelation from heaven but revelation from hell or some other bad place. And i think that that's the key right there. There are many people that that say god speaks today. He's alive and he can speak to me and he can. He can speak to others in a prophetic way. But if it ever contradicts what the bible says. Then you know. It's not god and you're saying that specifically and clearly mormon teaching is different correct correct so like jon says first john four a verse one beloved tests the spirits to see whether they are from god for many false prophets have gone out into the world and so we have to test anything that anybody says as truth against the written word of god right but in mormonism. You don't do that. You test actually test truth against what the modern day prophets and apostles are preaching and teaching and so and not only. Is it a revelation. We're talking about like god by the holy spirit is active in our lives right into direct says to do things but we're talking about. They believe that. God command scripture and commandments. Through these men that they have that prophetic authority like isaiah had to write and record scripture and that is the infallible word of god. That is what they claim. That's the authority that they claim to have. We are out of time. What a joy. Michael wild get to know you little bit. The folks that bush passport to.

Where Mormon Doctrine and Biblical Doctrine Diverge

"You're saying that there are real sticking points. Unavoidable problems between what the mormon faith teaches unequivocally. And what the bible says unequivocally so this is not just you know point of view or or something like that because i think that many people could make the case that what the roman catholic church teaches is is right. That people can twist things in other words. You can have a conversation there about. Do they believe this. Exactly this exactly. But you're saying that the lines are really bright and bold that separate mormon doctrine from biblical doctrine. In this case. So i guess my question is do you When you're talking about that you say that the lds church teaches that we can become like god. How is that different from somebody saying that. Look the scripture says that were made in his image and we will be made to be like him through the process of sanctification. And that kind of thing. I think that the eastern orthodox call it. Theo cysts in other words. That's kind of the point is that we're supposed to be more and more like him. So that's not really a problem. Where does it become a problem. Yeah so so as you mentioned biblically through the process of vacation and the holy spirit dwelling in us. We are conformed to the image of christ. We've been having airship with christ right in the kingdom of heaven but that's not what mormonism teaches. They actually teach not that we become like god but that we ourselves become gods and so eventually once. You've progressed to this. Point of god hood you then have the power authority to create your own worlds to populate those world with your spiritual and go through the same process that we are then in on this earth and so it is a complete perversion of the idea that we somehow can attain that which god now has and so And just the exclusivity of the claim that the church is the only institutional organization that has the correct power authority from god right there several organizations in the world that claim that authority in the mormon church claims that they are the actual church that jesus instituted during his earthly ministry and only with the authority and the proper ordinances contained within that organization can an individual live eternally in the presence of

Why Autor Micah Wilder Was Threatened With Excommunication From the Mormon Church

"Monkey. You were saying earlier. That as you're going through this process you think anybody are thinking. Well okay Maybe i can help reform Mormonism from within whatever discovering is true and the mormons that you know they revere the word of god so they should be good with this At the same time of it doesn't work out that way. When did you get the phone. Call you or you have call elder wilder. When did that message come through. Did give us the background there. Yeah so what led up to. that is after. I'd come to this. saving faith. In revelation through the book of hebrews at the mormon church was not what it claimed to be I had actually publicly professed in front of about forty or fifty mormon missionaries. My new found faith. In jesus christ so as a missionary whose concluding my two year mission trip i was supposed to stand up and share my testimony in my testimony had radically changed from the beginning of my mission to the end and so i actually publicly professed that. I believe that jesus was all that i needed that. I was saved by his grace and not by works. And i now new for the first time in my life that i had right standing with god and the forgiveness of my sins through the shed blood of christ and so as a result of that public testimony my mormon leader ended up calling me and said we need to. We need to chat and so that was when the two of us went into a meeting and we talked for about three hours. And i very candidly shared with him. The things that i had been reading in the bible that i come to know that salvation was independent of the mormon church of any religious institution but totally dependent on christ alone told him that i no longer needed the mormon prophet or any earthly man to mediate between me and god that there was one god and one mediator in that is christ and so all of these things I came forward To him and he responded by telling me that. I was filled with the spirit of the devil And i was being deceived by satan and then he threatened excommunicate me in my mission was terminated. Three weeks early and at that point then is a twenty one year old Mormon missionary was put on a plane and sent back to utah and had to face my family and my

"The mormon church we had extra biblical scripture that we were adhering to for truth. So i'd never really put the same amount of of trust into the bible is is a christian should and so i then began this process of reading the new testament daily for the remainder of my mormon mission which was about twenty months and i actually ended up reading the new testament in total twelve times from beginning to end it was through the power of the word of god that my eyes were opened and i was washed by the water of the word of god and i started to see the difference in the gospel that i was teaching as a mormon and the gospel that was revealed in the new testament and i loved what you said before the break. You know paul said should we send deliberately so the grace may abound. Will god forbid right. So as a mormon i had the cart before the horse i was trying to earn a right standing with god and trying to prove my worthiness to god believing that it was through my works that i could somehow make myself righteous not recognizing that we love god because he first loved us and so our faithfulness in the works and fruit that are produced through us is that which comes as a result of love of gratitude of faithfulness to the god who loved and saved us and so we then walk in the good works the goddess prepared before him that we should walk in them and so i came to recognize that there was this beautiful gospel. This good news that jesus love for me with so grand and vast that he paid in full measure the debt that i owe to god and god was asking of me for justification was to trust in him to believe that jesus alone was the only way to salvation. I never really understood this clearly. I don't think Until i heard it from. Tim keller Here new york city he. He just clarified it for me. That we've already said it. But i just remember really getting the idea that when you really believe that jesus did this for you while we were still enemies. While i hadn't given him any reason to do anything for me that he loved me and he does this for me when you get that then ingratitude you wanna live a good life. But it's in response to what he does once you get what he did you respond you. Don't initiate it. He initiates with his love loving us when we don't deserve to be loved. Obviously so it is. It's just like one of these important things and you can go wrong on either side as we said earlier. And that's why this is so important. Because they're people offer talks about in his book disciple a discipleship cheap grace where you could just is what jesus did as jesus did and you forget that if you really believe that. He did what he did. You're just gonna straight up live differently if you don't live differently. Maybe it means that you don't really understand what he did. You can claim it intellectually. But it's obvious that you don't really believe that you're not trusting it. You're just claiming it intellectually. Now when you're reading the bible you hear a lot of people that go read the bible to disprove it and then whoops they find out it's disproving where they're coming from. That takes kind of honesty. So what was the process for you as you're reading it. Did you stumble on an initial scripture. How did that unfold for you that you saw that. What the bible says is different than what you believed. Yeah so it was very gradual for me. So so as i began to read passages like asians to titus three and john six and i john four and colossians two just got gotta slowly and gradually opening my eyes to this vast love in christ for people that aren't familiar with all the scriptures off the top of their head and i am three of those people give us a one or two of those to see what it was that you trip over and you said. Hey wait a minute. Yes so if he wants to four and five was something that was very influential and it says but god being rich in mercy because of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead in our trespasses. He made us alive together with christ by grace. You have been saved romans. Three twenty three for all sinden fall short of the glory of god but we are justified by his grace as a gift through the redemption. that is in christ. Jesus whom god put forward as appreciated by his blood to be received by faith so this whole idea. Right of god's grace. In christ that although the wages of sin is death the free gift of god is eternal life in christ jesus our lord and i began to see well. This is vastly different from this works. Righteousness that. I have been taught growing up in the mormon church and then i'll never be good enough that i can't be justified by works of the law but by faith in jesus christ alone so what this process like for you because everybody's different but i mean you know you're a good son. You love your parents. I just imagine at some point this difficult. Because you know you're going to hurt people that you love or you're going to let them down or it's going to be. What was it like for you. How did that unfold. Because that's that's very tough. Take some it takes some courage. Yeah so ultimately. Reading the bible led me to recognizing the truthfulness of the gospel. And i was actually born in born again and came to a saving faith in jesus christ while it was still on my mormon mission and so it was it was An incredible but simultaneously terrifying experience of recognizing that this new found faith in jesus was going to come at a cost of the cultural life to which i had. You know been ingrained. Since the time that i was a child and so that was a hard thing to face that cost of discipleship and actually one of the most powerful passages that god used. My life was matthew sixteen. She's says if you want to come after me then take up your cross and follow me in lose your life so that you can find it because what will it profit a man to gain the whole world but to lose his soul. So we're talking about that cost of discipleship to recognize that following. Jesus means losing. The world means that we gain something greater in christ than anything that we will ever lose according to.

"And so that was the catalyst that caused me a mormon missionary to begin reading the new testament on a daily basis. I always love teasing out these misunderstandings and trying to figure out. How do we get there right. And i think part of it. At least what. I've noticed is that people often can flate Living a good life with good works With the idea of living life with good works in order to get to heaven. And so i think many people sort of seem to imply that because it's by faith alone that were saved and that what jesus did on the cross that enables us to go to heaven. Some people falsely imply or even say that because of that. I don't have to do anything. And there's a conundrum barnow hoffa writes about this of course in his famous because the discipleship that when we talk about earning salvation through good works. That's wrong you can. You can never earn salvation through good works however if you really do believe that it's what he did on the cross that earns you salvation out of gratitude in that belief you're going to live differently. You're going to live a life of good works. You're gonna zealously. Desire to honor god with how you behave and so where people often get. Confused is the idea that they think that. Well if i don't behave well. I won't get to heaven and so it's this kind of thing that you have to really understand it otherwise it's easily confusing. We're going to go to a break. But i just wanna say that folks. This is a very important. They understand this. And the understand where michael wild is coming from the book as passport to heaven. We'll be right back. hey folks.

"Here folks kind of an exciting guest right now or at least. The story is exciting His name is michael wilder. The book Just came out harvest house passport to heaven. The true story of a zealous mormon missionary who discovers the jesus. He never knew passport to heaven. Michael wilder welcome nice to be here. Thanks for having me. This is an important story You've lived it. You put it in your book passport to heaven. But i think a lot of people there are many people that are not theological. And they can you know. They're kind of sloppy and they they don't really They don't care about the theology and maybe they're not just sloppy. Maybe they're just not focused on it but then there are other people that are hyper theological and all they care about his theology and so you started life as a mormon and something happened in this. Is that story A lot of people let me begin here would say look. I'm a mormon. Then i pray to jesus and i. I don't understand why you're making a weird issue of this. Would you say to to somebody like that. Yes so for me growing up in mormonism. I had this understanding of god that was rooted in who he was. According to my religion. Right so i was trying to establish a righteousness with god according to the laws and the ordinances mormonism so the awakening that i had was into the reading of the word of god that revealed to me that the gospel which i had vowed as a mormon was not in line with the gospel as revealed in the bible and so for me it was coming to that recognition that i was not following the jesus and the gospel that were the true jesus in gospel as revealed in the word of god. Now i just think that this is. This is hard for a lot of people listening to this program and they are. Elliot's folks whatever they it. It's mystifying or confusing. Or maybe they just think you're you're wrong or you're bitter or something and i want to be sensitive to them because this is a tough thing so so let me just ask you a before we get to the to what happened in the story the book give us your background. Where did you grow up. And and what was your Religious upbringing in that kind of thing. It's groping in a devout mormon home in the state of indiana My parents were actually convert to the mormon church before any of us children were born and then going into my high school years my faming. I- replanted in utah. And so my mother got a job to be a professor at. Byu we moved to a very prominent. A prestigious mormon community called alpine and we just became entrenched and rooted in this mormon culture and religion as anyone could be and our family was very much dedicated to living out the tenants of our faith. And i want to say and this is a kind of a thing where people again people who i would consider. Maybe overly feel logical. Don't understand that there are many people living out faiths with which i or they would disagree. We would say that they're theologically off but we want to be really clear. Many of these people are profoundly. Good people doing the best they can. They're honorable they're living moral wives They don't believe in cheap. Grace they believe in living out your faith and working hard to make the center of your life There many muslims in america who fall in that category and so. I just wanna be clear you know. We're not talking about some kind of cold weather sexual stuff going on the backend. We're talking about good people. Family people So you know you're you're growing up in that community and And you're just trying to be a good son. So at what point do you hit kind of a a speed bump and slow down and wonder if you're on the right path. How did that happen for you. Yeah so i would agree with you very much. I had a very sincere zeal for god. You know paul talks about that too. The romans about the jews. He says they have zeal for god. But not according to knowledge and so the muslims and the jehovah's witnesses mormons a lot these people fall into that category and so my zeal was that i wanted to live out my faith i believed in god i believed in jesus and i wanted to demonstrate that faith by the way that i live my life and so that ultimately led me to serving a two year mission for the more mature when i turned nineteen years old and so it was actually on my two year mormon mission in orlando florida that god began to open my eyes to a gospel that was in contradiction to the gospel. That i was living in preaching as a mormon missionary. And it's funny i. I often see that. You see this with Muslims in prisons around america. And you see this With with mormons Serving two years. There's and there are people that are hungry for truth and they want to be in the battle for for for truth over falsehood and for good over evil and that's very appealing to people. Because people say i'm living meaningless wife and then you see somebody leading a clean life. They've turned their life around. And they there mormon or they're a muslim or something. You just go look. All i know is living. This messed up life and i see these people have purpose. It's clean living They're good people. And i just want to say that because i think a lot of people in the christian community who don't have anything like that dedication they're kind of mostly in the world so to speak and but they believe they believe. They say they believe you know in the bible and jesus and stuff but it doesn't make much difference practically in their lives and so. I think there's a lot that we can all learn from dedicated mormons and muslims and see that even though i disagree with them theologically. Their dedication is at least fascinating. And so you're one of these people you're giving two years of your life to spread what you consider the truth about god so at what point in that journey did do you As i said before you know hit hit a speed bump. Yeah so talking about zeal. So i actually tried to convert a baptist pastor while i was a mormon missionary and The that shows how convinced. I was of the truthfulness of our message. And of my desire to want other people to have what i believed to be true and so That was actually in this meeting. With a baptist pastor that i sat down and had a theological discussion with him where we presented our belief system and the the tenants of mormonism and he responded by proclaiming the saving gospel as revealed in the word of god so that was really the moment of my life when everything changed and it wasn't that hearing the gospel changed me instantaneously. It was at the seed was planted that ultimately god led and brought to fruition. And so he's telling me the gospel message in a way that i had never before heard it and that was the good news of the sufficient blood offering of christ on the cross of calvary to cleanse me of sin. And make me right with god that eternal life was not contingent upon my worthiness or my goodness or my righteousness but it was contingent upon my faith in the righteousness of jesus christ and that was a message. That was really in complete contradiction to what i believe is a mormon and the ultimate challenge that he gave me at. The end of this meeting was simply to go to the word of god myself and to go to the bible and read the new testament like a child and i think what he meant by that invitation was just to remove my religious preconceived notions about what i believe. Truth was and allow god through his word to show me the truth and to open my eyes..

And you got the third bullet, third defense player off the board but but a lot of people think he's the best defense to put in this draft, similar to Isaiah Simmons, were the profile is a hybrid linebacker, Uber athletic great speed. Sideline-to-sideline questions about his ability to point of attack and strength there you know and then there's the off-the-field stuff but but ultimately the cowboy is I believe picked the best player on the board and that's what I asked them to do, that's what they did.

"In the cowboy said, we're not going to move down to twenty kids, not going to get our guy and they knew if they made the trade with a guy who for some reason, want to go to the Giants. Maybe they thought the Giants going to take Smith. I don't know, not really sure what the Giants were afraid of or the Eagles. I should say but at any rate they take Parsons they, this is the guy they want it. Ten clearly thought they knew that he was going to be there at 12. They make the trade they end up with the additional third, Micah Parsons Ran a three right up in a, a 439. 40-yard dash it. His size. It's incredible. I mean, he, he is one of the he's probably the most athletic off the draft is, he's a very similar player to Isaiah Simmons. Last year, coming out of Clemson. These are the modern linebackers. that are extremely athletic great, sideline-to-sideline speed, you know, can cover So, you know, look, I mean, I certainly not a guy that I would have, surely not a guy that I was totally high on. A lot of that was based on number one off-field issues, which, you know, he's involved with the hazing incident took and state was pretty graphic, you know, I'm sure he was asked about this the Cowboys. And, you know, he probably talked about the fact he was inexperienced, and young, and Seventeen eighteen, whatever it is, and, you know, I mean, his certify them better for the doubt of that point, but there's those and then there's the positional piece import is linebacker. Given that, if you improve the interior of the defensive line, you improve your corners and safeties, you're in good shape. Now look I sell that to say. I say pretty consistently, take the best player in your board. But first, let me tell you about my friends have been online.

"30th is the Cowboys beat the clns media, I'm tempting. But I've noticed that today's episodes but shorter than usual month because we're in the middle of the NFL draft. And as of release here, Friday morning, which is the normal release time for the cock podcast, Cowboys only selected 1 player throughout the rest of the draft play out. Now with 11 or 10, more Pix, 11 total picks for the Cowboys, going to be releasing another podcast episode into next week to sort of recap, everything that's happened for the Cowboys in this draft, so longer version to come next week. Here's the shorter version and as always be brought to you by betonline.ag, betonline.ag is your online Sportsbook experts. And as always, I would like to urge you to hit subscribe or follow the podcast and and give us writing, as well as tell a friend, you know, urging each and every one of you to tell somebody, hey you like the Cowboys listen the page speed podcast check it out with are attempting, okay. So weird top 10, Because things. took a different turn than maybe we expected them to and So for the Cowboys Cowboys were supposed to pick a 10. They end up swapping with the Eagles and still getting the guy that they wanted attend. So they basically pick up another third-round, pick em. So they now have three third-round picks 11 pics, overall ten picks left after the first round. That's all good news. And look they end up with arguably the best defensive player draft and the third defensive player off the board that was perhaps most surprising figured a lot of us. Did the Cowboys at 10 would be able to be selecting the best defensive player draft. Most likely they'd have their pick of JC Horner Patrick certain Micah Parsons if they they liked him preferred that position of a corner. We knew Corner was gonna be the premium for them but as it stood the Broncos pickups are 10:00 at 9 right in front of them. And it was JC horn, going 8-2 Carolina. Not a surprise that horn was the one picked. First, I thought he was the better of the two corners. He was the guy thought that the Cowboys would end up taking. But Cowboys didn't have an opportunity to take either horn long or short, an because they were both gone. And so the Cowboys are on the board there. And, and of the, you know, I talked about potentially taking for offense of players. If available at 10, that would be pen a song. Jaylen waddle or Kyle pits and then the fourth was Rashawn Slater. The offensive tackle for Northwestern. He was on the board of ten Cowboys decided whoever they wanted at 1000, Parsons was going to be available at 12 and all.

Interview With Micah Larsen, Hilarious University Marketing Professor and Mom

"Thank you so much for being with me today. Thank you for having me joanne. Absolutely fill in the blanks. What did i miss about who you are and what you do. Oh boy. I am a montana toddler. Mama which means that. I spent my time outside. Four seasons of the year chasing my one year old around right now league us. My background is in social science. So i'm actually a trained social scientists in published research on persuasion so that was kind of made. I love if you will. I married my husband. Eric works medicine. And so this has been a very interesting time Yes australian co bed. I'm sure you can imagine for all of time spent apart. We have a one year old wilder. Tell me about how you came to be part time professor. Yes i went into academia. Because i love people in their brains since i came out of the womb. My parents would say that. I asked why about everything. Why why would you now. I understand as a mom myself. So i found that social science was the key to why people do what they do and i fell in love with the idea of studying people's brains and how we form relationships in dot world of communication research. There's as little tiny nisha research called social influence or persuasion. And so it's basically the science of how we get people to say yes to things and within that i researched health communication so basically how we get people to say yes to wear seatbelts or donate their organs or in my case have safe sex so like use a condom and that was a really interesting topic to study. Oh my gosh. that's so fascinating. Yeah i think. I missed my calling. I listened to several podcasts. That are along this line hidden. Brain and invisibly leah and i like revisionist history with malcolm. Glad well even. Though i know that he's more of an observer at he's not as much of a scientist but i just find anybody who thinks about humans and what they do and how their brains work in a different way or a unique and new way. I'm so fascinated with i. I just can't even get enough of it. So i love eating this. Yeah you hit. The nail on the had hidden brain is exactly my realm of study. I love it. And i actually wrote a blog post about one of his episodes about tunnel vision. I almost felt like it unlocked. A part of my understanding about other people that was missing about how people can make such terrible decisions because they're under duress and there's a whole episode. I think actually unsafe sex. And you're rational decision making in your thought process when you're sitting in your office chair. Drinking a cup of coffee talking to a girl felt like well. Of course. I would never put myself in harm's way but then when you're under the influence of infatuation and the moment somehow suddenly our brains make different types of decisions but that that episode about tunnel vision. There's so much more there. I think he just kind of grays. The tip of the iceberg on why people make unexpected unpredicted decisions and why people kinda dig themselves into a deeper when all of the outside observers are going wait. Why don't you just stop doing this and start doing this. But because they're already in that whole they just can't you know yacht. We get super married to our convictions. In so our brains are really uncomfortable with information that goes against our beliefs so we end up seeking out and believing information that even if it's not really good information as long as support previously held beliefs. We just roll with it. I haven't heard the tunnel vision episode but that sounds exactly like the type of research that was doing which kind of explains like people who believe that cohen is a really scary disease will contain to believe that more and more staunchly. Yeah they will reject data to the contrary they will collect data to the consistent. Exactly that is exactly the same thing we do with politics and so many things all right. Well let's do rapid fire questions. If you had to describe yourself in one word. What would it be bold awesome. What is your number. I'm in achiever. Which i think is a three with an individualist swing so achiever in midwest yes okay. So three wing four. Fold your baby. I love it. What is something unexpected. That has changed about you in the past few years so i became a mother which wasn't unexpected. Because i didn't know if. I wanted to have children but i became a mother in a very unexpected way which i'm sure we'll talk about. Yeah gosh. I can't wait to hear more about that. Wow becoming a mother is like the earth shattering and paradigm shifting. I opening and exhausting. What's the scariest thing you've ever done for fun moved to africa. Wow you did it for fun. And when was that twelve years ago. I was in college. Amazing and africa is a continent. Where were you in africa. Yes i was in ghana which is like no armpit carnival area of the west coast.

Keep Your Eyes on the Lord (Micah 7:5-7)

"A chapter seven verses. Five through seven put no trust in the neighbor. Have no confidence in a friend. Guard the doors of your mouth from her. Who lies in your arms for the son treats the father with contempt. The daughter rises up against her mother. The daughter in law against her mother-in-law a man's enemies are the men of his own house. But as for me. I will look to the lord. I will wait for the god of my salvation. My god will hear me. On a powerful few verses as mica describes the conflict the division the lack of trust between people between him and neighbors him and friends even warning about a husband and a wife and potential conflict there and then with fathers and sons and and mothers dis summary statement at the end of her six. A man's enemies are the men of his own. The house like what do you do when people who are close to you let you down in some way people who are closest to you people you have looked to win leaned upon and trusted in mica chapter seven. As for me. I will look to the lord. What a powerful contrast. But as for me i will look to the lord and the pictures clear. I will look to the one who will never let me down. I will look to the one who i can always trust. I will look to the one who will always always always be faithful to me. Who will always care for me with wisdom who were always uphold me with his righteous right hand who will lead me and guide me in ways that he guarantees are ultimately for my good. I will look to the lord. I will wait for the god of my salvation even that at this picture of dependence on god waiting on god i am trusting in god. I'm leaning on god. He will come through for me. That's what he says. My god will hear me and not just hear me. The whole picture is gone will year and answer me when i call to him. God will help me when i call to him. Oh be encouraged today. I just think about all the divisiveness and the world around us the culture around us in my country. They've had the divisiveness. Even among god's people sometimes among professing followers of jesus among people that you want to look to lean on trust in and mica chapter seven verses five through seven is just reminding us to keep our eyes fixed on the lord. yes to be an fijian's four kind of way eager to maintain the unity the spirit in the bond of peace and the church eager to be peacemakers. As god's word calls too eager to honor everyone eager not to promote division to heal division like these are all thrust that we see in scripture ways. God calls us to cultivate peace and seeking unity particularly as his people. I mean she just prayed that for us so clearly in john chapter seventeen and such a clear theme we see all throughout the new testament at the same time and this is kind of the point. Right keep your eyes looking to the lord in the more you are looking to the lord trusting in him honoring him following him. The more i am doing that the more we will grow in unity together the more we will grow and fellowship with one another our unity revolves around jesus r-unity revolves around looking the lord waiting for depending on the god of our salvation knowing that he hears us. Oh god freshly encouraged reading these verses to know the right. Now i can every one of us can look to you and know that we can trust in you.

Filled with the Spirit (Micah 3:8)

"Mica chapter three verse eight. But as for me i am filled with power with the spirit of the lord and with justice and might to declare to jacob his transgression and israel his sin. What a beautiful verse in the middle of this chapter so mica at this point has been talking about false prophets as addressed in many different points already in this short book in the old testament but here in verse eight. He says but as for me. He begins talking about his role as a true prophet. He said i am filled with power with the spirit of the lord not with the spirit of this world with the adversary who wants to deceive with false prophecy. False teaching that which not from god. I'm filled with power with the spirit of the lord and with justice and might so are already in this book. Mike has been a mouthpiece for god's judgment upon his people for their injustice in their oppression of people yet here. Mike is saying. I'm filled with justice and might because i'm filled with the spirit of the lord. And then he says all of this filled with power the spirit lord with justice in my to do what to declare to jacob his transgression and to israel his sin to speak about the seriousness of aggression and sin against god and to call people to turn to him. So how does this verse lead us to pray while. I don't wanna make an exact parallel by any means between followers of jesus. Today you and me have trusted are trusting in jesus for salvation because there are some unique things that characterize mica here but when we turn the pages the new testament we see these realities applied to every follower of jesus his what regius told his disciples before he ascended into heaven. You will receive what you will receive power when who when the holy spirit comes upon you. My zen phil with power with the spirit of the lord like this is an awesome thought that which mica experienced as a prophet in the old testament. Every follower of jesus experiences in the new testament. You will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you. Mica says with justice and might yes like we have the spirit of god in us. The word of god to us about what is just and right and good and we have the strength of god living in us his spirit dwells inside of us y when mike say i'm filled with power the spirit of lord with justice in mind to declare to jake transgression and to israel his sin to tell people about the series of sin and the salvation of god. So why do we have. The power of god's spirit living in us remember what jesus said to his disciples. You will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be my what my witnesses you will witness to who i am what. I've come to do to save people from their sin. You will testify declare to others their transgression their sin in my salvation. Mica chapter three verse. Eight this is you and me as followers of jesus and so many ways so god. We prayed you'd help us to realize this today. Help us to live in this today. Help us to live accordingly today to realize that wherever we are whenever our job is are there were student we work in this capacity or that capacity wherever we are whatever we do god help us to live filled with your power with your spirit inside of us with justice and might gut help us to do justice to do that which is right and good strength of your mind. Fijian's six ten be strong in the lord and the strength of his mind. God help us to live in your strength today and with your spirit in us. Help us to declare to other people their transgression and sin and your salvation. God we pray for holy spirit. Empowered boldness today to be your witnesses. God we praise you for micheals faithfulness in his day. And we pray that you would help us each one of us to be faithful with your power your spirit your justice your mind to declare your word help us to be faithful today we pray in jesus name

Pay Just a little bit more. Just Mika thank you again for joining us. Really appreciate it I'm going to use the word that has been used a thousand times. I think a drinking game. We'll get started once. This is all over and we're all Hanging out in bars and clubs again but We are living in unprecedented times you know you you're obviously a You send it off in the intro. Former member of the NYLONS Jazz singer. I know that you are also coaching. Vocal coaches well With all of this in mind how obviously Cove nineteen must have impacted you in a number of ways. I'm wondering if you can sort of talk to us about the some of these Disruptions to your life well I will tell you I was about to draw a full length record. We were in release mode and the momentum was building we were onto. We've done two singles which had been beautifully received in the momentum. Online with videos was global as opposed to national and And hit so. We ended up having to move the CD launch concerts the fall and the third single and video. We had just cut the video for the third single and we were literally like I had to take it down from all the digital distribution. I mean like it was. It's hard to describe how giant our momentum woolas and then suddenly to screech to a you know it is nothing in comparison with people who are working on the front lines losing their lives to this pandemic globally. Whether you release your record now in the fall is literally the least important thing on earth but it meant that. I had a whole spring tour set up with soft seat theaters across Ontario. That you know we had to fold up and go home. And I know I'm I'm I'm pretty chill but there was about a week ner where I was trying to reorganize everything and you know I'm self managed so I had about sinks people that I was in constant communication with on my team. Managing the team managing. How are we going to do this? What are we GONNA do? How do we deal and So I was in a bit of an emergency for a while and then so the last two weeks where here in Toronto we'd been unofficial lockdown is been fantastic. I mean I'm busy as hell but I'm quite at home. I had stillness in my heart. I have no love for everybody. Who's like there? Are PEOPLE OUT THERE? Who Lost everything and are really wondering if they can pay the rents and I am not in that situation because my clients continue to book. In fact they're double booking with me twice a week instead of once. 'cause they're home with nothing to do. This is your vocal coach business. Yeah I also career strategy to right so I've got clients in La and New York and across Canada. And what happens is they've been. Outta towners have been doing the online with me from time immemorial now. It's just happened to be a guy who was also unclean streets going online with the you know for good. I mean honestly is heart-wrenching when you see the incredible amount of people whose lives are not only distrupt disrupt it but ended because of this virus but In terms of my little bubble of the world. I'm going to pick up a book and read it. Goddamn book for once in my life. You talked about stillness in your heart. I'm wondering if you can sort of Elaborate on that. And what would that manifests itself as well as interesting I was I was in full. Full managed the situation mode both in release while we were gearing for the release clever European team both North American team on that which means constant communication and coordination and management Of people and expectations. And and then and then when you when whenever they fell apart I wish sort of in an emergency mode myself trying to figure out How how what we were GonNa do to re-lane everything for the fall however all of that all of that. All that is dependent on Mika Barnes as an artist as a person having a sense of PD's at the center of the storm. If I don't then everybody on my team they all feel it. The audience feels it. You know my socials reflect like if I don't have stillness in my heart and like I e confidence that I'm in the right place at the right time doing exactly what the universe has intended this week. Our Guide to do on the planet. If I'm good with all that I can be peaceful in the midst of a hurricane I can be still in the in the midst of a pandemic one one of the things that I noticed on. I think you shared the other day. your trainer moving his right. Adrian a from a mental health and physical health perspective. It's really interesting to see how these times of change US or how we've changed with the times and how quickly we james like for example my wife and all her friends get together because one of their friends is a yoga instructor and they get the every day at noon. They jump on Google hangouts. So Meek it's interesting You know when I had my cousin in town I think it was about two weeks ago. Can Losing Track of time with the days here but You know she was asking. You know what's going to be on the other side of this and I thought you know we're GonNa see a lot of really creative stopped. We're going to see artists getting creative and not just artists fans you know doing mashups and getting really creative around their favorite artists and and I think we're seeing that with some of the you know impromptu concerts and even some of the people you know doing meam like or mixing up music and it's just it's very interesting. I don't know if any thoughts and not you seen. Yeah well of course we. We've taken the the music performance out of the amphitheater and the local club and we put it in the living room. So it's it's it's living room the living room which is which is a much more human scale and I. I have to say like you know the music that I make jazz Even when I was with the NYLONS and doing bigger theaters around the world. It has been. It's been beautiful to see how direct and in intimate the music communication has the calm. Now that we're live streaming from the living room as opposed to you know all the other ways that we've delivered music. I love it You know the intimacy that we're getting with our big star right now is unparalleled and You know people a lot of talk about like needing to dig in and spread love during this time and I am seeing an awful lot of positive results of people having to be locked down and digging for themselves and their loved ones. There's a lot more caring and sharing online that you know this is where we're coming out of an extremely divided period politically in. North America and Suddenly the world a smaller. Suddenly everybody's your brother your sister And I'm I'm always happy to see that the feel that after all you know. Why do I make music? It's about communication and You know it doesn't matter to me whether I'm in a big hall or coming through to your living room it's all good. I'm back gentlemen high. We barely moved. We kept talking. I don't know if it we'll figure it out and post. Yeah Yeah we'll figure that out Appreciate your patients Really really appreciate you sharing your thoughts meek on on sort of you know how you're dealing with this and your thoughts Around the the current pandemic Out as I was researching you one of the first things. I'm always curious about is how someone get started in this business this then. It almost seems you were born to be in entertainment. Your Dad was a drummer composer. Both of your brothers were your mom wrote from Mr Dress it up. It would have been strange if you were not in the entertainment industry. The shock would have been. Hey Mom. I've decided that mom dad sit down. I have something big tell you. I'm going to be an investment banker. Now we were. We were very blessed. Cvc Brad I grew up in the studio watching my mom handle all these stupid executives who were trying to push her around on Mr dress-up show I watch down my father as as a serious composer dealing with the you know the classical world and you know my brothers and I all went into the business. One of the things that we believed we. Could you know we? We never thought that you couldn't make a living in the music industry and Boy were we wrong joking but you know it's true you can. Actually you can see the kids that have the leg up and it means that while I was still in in high school I was already performing under my own name and making a name for myself and business when I was still really a kid. And that's thanks very much to the family I grew up in. My grandmother was a concert candidates in Europe. So we really didn't have any. There's no way we were going to do anything else were you. Did you feel pushed into? It isn't something you wanted to pursue. What did your parents think of this? I was interested in becoming a dancer or an actor when I was on a training and continued to train as an actor through my teams into my twenties I did a bunch of theater productions But you know when I about twelve thirteen. The music grabbed me and didn't let go. I mean really grab me like I mean I. I was in a rock and roll band with my friends in the garage. Heard a Billie holiday record. My mom gave my stepfather and I I. It was such a profound experience. I wait in an I quit the band and only quit the band. I told them I'm crew hitting rock and roll and I'm going home to become a jazz and blues artist could buy. Wow so it took. It took my decisions very seriously CONC- and it won't be the last time you changed music genre. 'cause I know we'll we'll get to it later but I know you moved to l a you sort of took a left turn or right turn. I don't know how to explain it but Do you remember the first time you went on stage and performed publicly? Was Lincoln the school thing or was that in a jazz club. Watch so young man. I mean okay. I was thirteen. I went and played..

"Five dollars called. This smells like my vagina. Stop it it is sold out. It includes Geranium. I thought she was classy. This is considered classics. Listen listen to what the vagina smoke. Geranium citrusy Bergamot and Cedar absolutes juxtaposed with the mask grows and amber at C. O.. Took as a high opinion of our snake. How many sniff do you think the scientists had to take in order to get this right? We go go from her to the cable to the candle. Yeah does she herself with a Napkin and give it to them or did she provide her actual self so that nothing gets in the way that she probably Queens into a mason jar and then she can do like twenty jars and they get to it when they want exactly yeah. She's a busy woman. I don't know tell me when you make a Pumpkin Spice Vagina. Then I'll talk then you so. This is legit what she thinks. Regina smells like so so I guess that's what everyone wants to lick Those ingredients maybe gynecologist about Cedar. It might be growing. It has an okie flavor hardwood. Wow I can't imagine being in a boardroom and going like next up with China's candle follow me on there. I wouldn't even know how to participate in that room. You can't tell me there's anything but yes people right Goo t we do different races. Why not nothing? Nothing move. Believe forget it didn't mean nothing Gwyneth. How did how did? She's an incredible actress. But how did she get big. What was the because we were going over Kazakhstan? I would just saw Mister Ripley again and and such a good movie. But she's not known for that but right no. She's much a lot earlier than that. And I can't think of movies that she's in because I think she falls into the character so well okay right. Is that helpful in the conversation. She was so good when head got cut off. She's in case. What's the movie where he's Zip? Zip zips his penis that her no. That's not even harder see I. I'm messing that up. That's Cameras see that was her No no the mask was the mask was her candy. Yeah no I'm saying that. That was Cameron Diaz as big break. Oh yes she was amazing in that but yeah too so famous but I can't even come up with a movie that she's in probably. The Big One was the Shakespeare Shakespeare in life. Yeah I was thinking like I feel like I've seen unheard dressed in period but that's it I why she this famous is it because of her parents. I know why I don't want to be crass okay. This login most so good. She comes into a raiders room. It's like you're the stock There's a lot of skirts hurts. Christie Y says I think I knew her. Best from royal tannenbaums see that's like a very obscure move even though it got a lot of Watches watches even though it was like an independent movie still. She's famous before that though again. You don't associate her with that movie. You know what I mean. She's not like a main person. The only guys it's true. which by the way the Oscars the nominations just came out? Oh no female male directors in upsets me and it pisses me off and maybe next year women. You could try harder because I'm looking at all. All the women directors in our one was even good enough to be nominated. What we're the women directors? Okay I think she She directed right but she didn't try too hard obviously joke her. Her Guide director tried hard once upon a time in Hollywood channel directing. I guess I can imagine What a superhero movie with feelings? A good point only five women who have ever been nominated in the director category period of all of history. Kathryn bigelow being the only one who ever one one for the hurt locker so try like she did get awards care little bit it. Thank you dockers not have a host again This year will everybody be okay. Okay so they have host. It's a trick base able still so come out and tell jokes and then introduce somebody host. But that's the thing these famous people think that they're taking a stance which you know. Why are we asking them to do that? Anyway there they never say their Own Words except for here where just like the most political so were politicizing this event I get it but it's like oh no we're staying away from that but you're still going to the event it's still a big deal and like he'd said you're still introducing each other. You're still playing along but no one wants to be the head of it. I don't follow. Oh the Oscars say. Let me confirm announced together with the academy there will be no traditional host this year you think. JC would do it. Lilavati Burke said the net where he sounds funny. Burke said the network felt last year show worked well without an emcee Kevin Hart was tapped to host bowed. OUT AMID CONTROVERSY OVER OFFENSIVE HOMOSEXUAL tweets the host Louis Oscars actually saw an eleven percent viewership increase from the year. Before for what that's worth it was the first Oscars go without in them. See in thirty years everybody was just fine. It'll be February ninth on ABC yet. Kevin Hart Says No. I won't apologize for these are all tweets in the Oscar said. Yeah you don't want actually we don't care we don't need you what everyone acts like they don't care about the Oscars or awards ceremonies anyway but something is driving this huge force that is I love him. A lot of money is thrown at it. But but you love because people fuck up yes. Yeah I like an awkward political speech I like when it goes too long and music has to play him off. A big fan of Adel Design Company started. I Love Delta. Is One of my favorites really to do you watch the Oscars.
