They play next week. But that didn't stop the media from going wait. Did somebody say some had to do with the cowboys? Well, that's bulletin board material. Micah Parsons disrespects Jalen hurts question mark? Well, this has been going on for two days. This is the third day. I didn't touch it the first two days because I took it with what it was a measured conversation that he had with von Miller. Von Miller has a podcast, the von cast. And parson says, you know, when you look at the eagles, is it Jalen hurts or the team? So he's asking von Miller the question and they had just talked about Jalen hurts and how good Jalen hurts was. And well, let me I'll let you hear it and here is Micah Parsons and von Miller starts with Micah. As a hearse for the team. I think it's a little bit of both, man. I think. His system indeed. I think it's a little bit of both, man, 'cause they got a great deal. They got a great offensive line, which helps hurt hurts has AJ Brown in devonta Smith. They got a good running game. I mean, my Sanders. They scheme the scheme that they have. O line. I mean, bro. It is eagle cowboys. The eagle cowboy coming up, isn't it? Yeah, it's coming up. I'm not trying to make no enemies. I just like, I just love the game so much. And I understand it so much that when things are off, I just can't hold it in, like, I almost gotta say something like. You know, they got a great team, great deal. Everyone has their own opinions. But they got so Jalen hurts is good. They got them for the MVP race we were Patrick Mahomes. His status and what he's been doing with numbers that he'd be putting up is MVP worthy. I don't know if that's bulletin board material. I don't think he called him out. I don't think he disrespected him. He says, look, I'm a defensive guy. I want to give credit to the defense. The eagles defense and the line. Not Jalen hurts is not an MVP candidate. He did talk about him and say nice things about him. But it got blown out of proportion. They don't even play each other this weekend. It's next weekend, but because it's Micah Parsons and everybody's desperate to have something on the cowboys. Anything on the cowboys. I don't know. And then, so it gets to the point now Micah Parsons is ask about his statements. We'd like to clarify the thing, are you standing on what you said or what? I always stand up. I mean, you got a sandwich everything you say just as a man. But obviously they small clipped it. And just took one line of what was really talked about, but no pun intended or no disrespect to her. I think he's doing great to share. But you know what I mean? Defensive guy, and you know, I said, he was defenses, just a team to watch. I mean, I mean, they just got hell of a players over there that's been making plays all year, so from a defensive aspect, you know, I know how offensive guys just kind of get all the credit, so I just want to stick up for the defensive guys. That's a measured answer. For a young guy, I don't think there's anything there. Because I said to Paul, did I miss something here with Micah Parsons? Because I was listening to it, listen to it in context, and I said, did I miss something that should I be covering this? Yes. It's crazy that they're like, do you have any do you want to apologize? I know. Apologize for what? I know. White polling. The more you listen to it, the more benign it gets, he's basically complimenting their entire team, which imagine if Micah Parsons was asked by von Miller is a Jalen hurts of the team. Oh, Jalen hurts is carrying that team. They're lucky to have him. That's full of Tim port material. You know, yeah, they're lucky that if they didn't have hertz, they would be under 500. That means he'd be demeaning the entire team. It was very measured. Because then he could have said, is it Jalen hurts or the team? Oh, it's definitely the team, not Jalen hurts. He's a system quarterback, anybody could win with that offense in that defense. I thought it was a measured conversation. He asked von Miller the question. Hey, is it hurts? Or is it the team? And von Miller's the host and then bob Miller saying, well, you know, it's both. Which it is. It's both. But because it's the cowboys, now it becomes something they're not you're asking Micah Parsons. Do you want to take those words back? I would have been, I would have said, what words? I would ask the media who covering this. Do you actually know what I said? People just took a headline. Show me where I disrespected him. Let me hear it. I'd like to know, because I would ask the media, did you do your job? And I get the feeling. A lot of media members did not. It's like, oh my God, Micah Parsons said something about Jalen hurts. Let's lead. Let's lead SportsCenter with it. And don't people always refer to football how it's like the ultimate team game, right? You need everybody going in the same direction in order to accomplish this one goal, but if a player was to even hint that maybe it's the team and not one player, it's like, what? Wait a minute. You can't say that. Yeah, I kept going, what am I missing here? And then I'd read a couple of articles on this, and then I said to Marvin, let me just hear how it's set up. I got to hear the context of this. And then when I heard it, I go, there's nothing here.

The House Passes the Respect for Marriage Act
"The marriage act. The respect for marriage act. That is now passed a bunch of cowards and now going into Joe Biden's desk where he will stumble over there and scribble something on a piece of paper to make it into effect. This is my whole thing here. Marriage between two men is not a marriage. That's not marriage. That's called a relationship. And in America, you can have a relationship if you want to. You can do whatever you want to do. But that's not marriage. You can call it whatever you want to call it, but it's not marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman. And, you know, it bothers me that we just go down and slippery slope. The further we go, the further into the battery we get. Just like a marriage between 30 year old and a 16 year old ain't a marriage. That's not marriage. You can't marry a minor. In some cases, they let people marry minus. But generally speaking, you can't marry a minor. You can't marry a kid. Some things, I think should be preserved in a conservative manner. Because this is what's going to happen. When they get out here and they go marriage between two men is a law. What's going to happen if they go to your church and they say, I want you to marry me and my husband. And according to the Bible, two men shall not be together. Especially not in marriage, according to the Bible. Don't get mad at me. I didn't write the Bible.

Candace Owens' Court Battle Is Officially Over
"I got some people calling in let me see what they talking about. But I want to give Candace Owens to shout out. For winning that court case against fraudulent fake black Republican candidate Kimberly klacik. Kimberly klacik sued Candace Owens for $20 million because Candace Owens exposed to her regarding her FEC reports. And I said, exposed her meaning she just asked the questions, why are you spending this distance and as a politician because according to your FEC reports, this seems suspicious. Instead of coming back and saying, hey, let me explain these things. Let's have a conversation. Let me explain them or whatever. You don't have to have a conversation. She made up all these lies said Candace Owens made up stuff about her and she sued her for $20 million. But ladies and gentlemen, as of recently, I think it was yesterday came out that Kimberly klacik lost the lawsuit. It was a frivolous lawsuit. And she knew she was wrong. And she ended up sitting with Candace and having to pay her a $115,000. But, you know, her cowardice, corny, wack, drug using self isn't going to come out and apologize, she's not going to be an honest woman because she was on social media talking big trash. I remember swatching it. Talking about, oh, I beat Ken, it's ha ha. Let's see you in court. All this other stuff and now she lost and she quiet.

Micah Parsons Apologizes After Viral Tweets About Brittney Griner
"The NFL linebacker, mister Parsons, who was a tremendous football player, mind you. But I want to go back over to stuff that he said because in my mind, I'm thinking, why did he apologize? And then it's like, everybody's apology is dead. I communicated with somebody that I respect. Why can't you communicate with somebody respect, but still disagree with them? I don't think he should have apologized for this. And let me read his tweets again. He said, wait, no. We left the marine. And then he goes on to write, we still not voting for you. It's what parson said in a tweet for Joe Biden. Because I believe he had the wisdom to say, we got her, but didn't get a marine. You're doing this for votes. From black people. This is one of them cares you can dangle over the black man head and say, look what we did for y'all. Now we get y'all votes for another 20 years. But Parsons in my opinion had an educated opinion about it. And he made a statement that I believe that is a sentiment of many people in this country. But then, somebody, some woke black dude, veteran, somebody on this team, or somebody stupid, I wouldn't say stupid, but somebody who's who I think is less bold about the statements that they make, must've told him he better apologize or else. He said I just spoke, this is the tweet he wrote after he deleted his other tweets. Just spoke to some people that I respect and trust, I should have been more educated on the topic and not tweeted out of emotion for my family and others who have served. For that I apologize, he goes on to say, also, if what I've been told about also, if what I'm told about the attempts to bring the marine home are true, then the best outcome was accomplished. I pray mister Whelan comes home, but I'm extremely happy for Britney and our family. I am not too prideful to admit when I made a mistake. I respect what he said, but you didn't make a mistake. You know what? You don't have to delete what you said. You can add context to what you said.

If we lose a basketball player, that's popular that's going to look bad on us. So we brought a home. I'm just going to keep you real with y'all. We'll try this again and get way back, but we had the brain pretty grinding back. It's politically expedient to do that. Just keep it 100. Just keep 100. Think about this. You know what? You know how whack it betrayed that is? It tells you what negotiators we have on the table. They go, Putin tells him if you want the basketball player, give us this guy. If you don't want to give us this guy, CC, let me tell you how they framed it. She said it was Brittany griner and nobody. Well, you didn't have to give up the you didn't have to give a Victor guy. Victor bow, you didn't have to give him up, did you? They say Brittany grinder and nobody, he said, when we ain't giving up, Victor bout. So screw him, we'll put him to death in America. You give us both our people and we put him to death. What you want to do? I think that could have been a good argument. But no, they go, Russia, Vladimir Putin, spit on a picture of Joe Biden and then said, you give us this man back or else. We're going to put this boy to work. Oh, this girl that looked like a boy to work. And he said, okay, we'll do whatever you want to do Vladimir.

Bringing home one American or no American at all. And that's that. We gave up a prolific arms dealer who was convicted of trying to kill Americans, who was called the merchant of death. The professional athlete is also an American citizen. So let's not forget that. Who deserved. And so and I have explained how the Russians have illegally treated totally illegitimately treated his situation. I've been very clear on that. We've laid that all. We laid that out for you. And again, the president felt that this was an opportunity to bring Brittany home. He is going to continue to do everything he can to bring Paul weyland home just like he did with Trevor Reed, just like he was able to secure Trevor Reed's release.

WNBA Star Brittney Griner Released From Russian Custody
"Brittany griner is now released from prison in Russia and in exchange for convicted arms dealer. Now, a lot of people are probably thinking what I'm thinking. How do you trade a convicted arms dealer? Whose nicknamed the merchant of death, who's probably involved in the murder and pillaging of so many other people, maybe not directly, but maybe indirectly, given the fact that he's delivering arms that are illegal, the massive amount of crimes that he was associated with led him to an American prison. It wasn't just a crime that he committed on American sword. He was committing crimes, internationally. And we got him and put him in prison here. And you're going to change, you're going to exchange a person like that. With that much of a criminal history, for NBA player that can't really dunk. Now her doctor ain't really got nothing to do with it, but the facts still remain. She's illegitimate. And comparison to what they traded her for. And this is my whole thing. Do I believe that it was excessive to do 9 years in prison and sent to a camp to do hard labor for being in possession of an illegal substance at the airport? Of course, 9 years is to us in America. It's far too excessive. However, you did the crime, you got to do the time and somebody else's country.

The Lord Requires Justice and Kindness
"Micah, chapter 6 verse 8. He has told you, oh man, what is good? And what does the lord require of you? But to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God, whenever we see, God say in his word, here is what the lord requires of you. We should sit up and take special attention. This is God telling us what is good and what is required of us to do justice. God requires this of us to love kindness. God requires this of you and me and to walk humbly with him. I think about Sunday school teacher I had grown up who in the church I grew up in poured into so many kids and students lives. Mister lassie and I have in my office a little plaque that he gave me and so many other kids and students that contains this verse. Micah 6 8 and then a paraphrase that he put alongside it, where he wrote in the practice of justice do what God has declared to be right in the practice of faithful love, love as Christ loved and walking humbly with God, let God lead the way. And for years, I have looked at this verse, Micah 6 8, and that paraphrase from mister lassie and Ben reminded that this is what God requires of me and you today. And so it makes total sense for us to pray exactly what we read here. God help us to do what is good and what you require of us.

Jesus Is Our Shepherd
"Micah chapter 5 versus two through 5, but you owe Bethlehem a frater who are too little to be among the clans of Judah from you shall come forth for me, one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days, therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth, then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel and he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the lord and the majesty of the name of the lord his God, and they shall dwell secure for now. He shall be great to the ends of the earth, and he shall be their peace. Promise to hear from God through Micah centuries before Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. Micah says to Bethlehem who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, this small town among the people of God from their shall come forth one who is to be a ruler in Israel from ancient days, the picture here is clear. This is not just any ruler. This is a picture of the God himself, the ancient of days coming to God's people in Bethlehem, being born to stand and shepherd God's flock to be the shepherd of God's people and to lead them into security. They shall dwell secure the one whose name will be great to the ends of the earth and who will be their peace. This is Jesus. This is one of those places in the Old Testament inspired by God through a prophet centuries before Jesus came telling about who he is. What he would do as God in the flesh, God, with us. So as we prepare even to celebrate Christmas in the coming weeks, just remember that for centuries, this was anticipated. In God's word and remember who Jesus is in your life today, the ancient of days, the eternal God in the flesh, who is your shepherd, amidst whatever you are walking through. Miss whatever challenges you're facing amidst the questions you have amidst whatever will unfold in your life today or tomorrow know that Jesus lives to be your shepherd

"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Micah four versus one and two, it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains. And it shall be lifted up above the hills and peoples shall flow to it, and many nations shall come and say, come, let us go up to the mountain of the lord to the house of the God of Jacob that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths for out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of the lord from Jerusalem. Those verses are awesome. Did you get the picture there? This is prophecy in Micah about a day coming when the word of the lord will go out from Jerusalem to the nations and the peoples who will say teach us the ways of the God of Jacob. That we may walk in his paths. That was prophecy in Micah chapter four. Now, fast forward to Jesus and axe chapter one in Jerusalem, telling his disciples, right before he ascends into heaven, you will receive power from the Holy Spirit and you will be my witnesses from Jerusalem to Judea to samaria to the ends of the earth to all the peoples to all the nations, what he told his disciples on that mountainside and Matthew 28 go and make disciples of all the nations of all the people's teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. That's the picture you're in my chapter four of us too, that he may teach us his ways, the nations are saying this that we may walk in his path. Do you realize this commission that you and I are a part of today making disciples of the nations? This commission that every single one of us has been invited to be a part of. This is not just for a few Christians. This is for every single father of Jesus you and I are a part of a mission that God has been working all throughout history has been promising would be a reality that we are a part of fulfilling, making the cycles of all the nations teaching all the nations to obey him, that they may walk in his paths. So God, we say in a fresh way today, yes, to this commission, yes, we want to make disciples of all the nations. Got to help us to faithfully make disciples today in our homes and the places where we work in the cities where we live, got to help us to make disciples to lead people to you Jesus to baptize them in the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit, and the teach them everything that you've commanded us. God, we want to be faithful to this commission right where we live today and to the ends of the earth that all the nations and all the peoples might hear your word. Gotta be pray. Today specifically for the oranga people of Uganda, this group of 650,000 Muslims, among whom there are some coming to know Jesus among whom some amidst whom disciples have now been made and churches have been planted yet most are still unreached by the gospel. God, we pray for the spread of your grace and your word going out to the oranga people of Uganda and thousands of other people groups like them got all the people groups we pray for in this podcast. God, we lift them before you and we pray. Bring them to yourself, cause the gospel to go to them, raise up witnesses who will go to them, use our resources and our praying to undergird them God we pray that they may all all the nations of the world. They may all walk in your paths and be taught your ways as your word goes out to the ends of the earth. Got it. We prayed you for the privilege of being a part of this mission, this purpose that you've been working over centuries throughout the history of the world that we're a part of today help us to faithfully play our part we pray.

"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Micah, chapter three versus one and two. And I said, here you heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel. Is it not for you to know justice? You who hate the good and love the evil who tear the skin from off my people and their flesh from off their bones? What an indictment of the heads of Jacob and the rulers of the house of Israel, God is saying to these leaders I have put you in charge of caring for my people and you've done the exact opposite. You tear the skin from off my people. Tear the flesh from off their bones. What imagery of leaders who have lead in such a way that they don't benefit the people they are leading instead they only benefit themselves and they have led to destruction among those who they are leading. I read this and I just immediately think about the people gods and trusted me to lead and to care for as a husband to think about my wife as a dad to think about my kids as a pastor to think about people in the church that I shepherd. I just want to encourage you to think about people that you have a responsibility for leading and caring for in some way. Maybe in an official title you have of leadership or maybe it's unofficial. It's just a picture of influence you have and others lives and let's pray God help us to use to steward the influence any leadership we have in others lives for their good. God we pray for the good of people we lead in any of the different ways we might lead them. How do we pray for the good of those we oversee in some way and God for the good of anyone we have the opportunity to influence today this week or next week, God we pray to you to help us to steward our leadership and influence for others good that you help us to love the good and hate evil. Gotta be pray that the fruit of our leadership and influence would be others experiencing your goodness and your grace, your mercy and your kindness. We pray that people would flourish under our leadership would flourish as a result of our influence and even as we pray for this stewardship we think about the opportunities we have with the gospel to spread it around the world. The opportunities we have to influence nations for your glory God we pray today for the Turkmen people of Turkmenistan almost 5 million of them and so few of them followers of Jesus most of them having no knowledge of the gospel God, please help us to steward your grace in our lives for the spread of the gospel to Turkmen people. And other unreached people like them and God reprised specifically for this people group today that they would hear the good news of your grace and your love in Jesus. You would cause the gospel to spread among them God that they might know justice that they might enjoy your goodness. All of this God we pray, according to your word and Micah, chapter three versus one and two, and Jesus name, amen..

Seek God's Correction
"Micah, chapter two verse 11. If a man should go about and utter wind and lies, saying I will preach to you of wine and strong drink he would be the preacher for this people. What a verse on a commentary on both the people in Micah's day and false prophets and Micah's day. God is saying through a faithful, true prophet, Micah, that his people just want to hear what they want to hear. They want to be encouraged and comforted to continue living for the prosperity of this world instead of being confronted and corrected in ways that would be pleasing to God, so I read this and I think, what about us? Do we want to hear confronting correcting truth in God's word? Do we welcome it and our hearts are we living with that kind of humility? I know I am prone to not want to be corrected, rebuked. By God's word or even by people who are sharing God's word with me, people who care for me and love me and want to help me grow in holiness, I can. I'm guessing we all can be prone to not want that and instead to just want comforting and encouraging words even if we're going in the wrong direction and are sinful foolishness, we can want to be encouraged toward selfishness and sin and at the same time here's a picture of Micah saying there are plenty of people who will do this who will encourage you and point you towards sin we live in a world where we are surrounded by people who are pointing us to that which is not from God and the danger is when there are even people who call themselves the people of God, who are doing this. So God we pray for your help in our lives for your Salvation from our own sinfulness. On a daily basis today, we pray that we would acknowledge God we pray that we would not ignore your correcting, rebuking, confronting, Holy Spirit,

Don't Be Deceived by Prosperity
"Micah chapter one verse three for behold, the lord is coming out of his place and will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth on imagery. God, Micah says, is coming out of his place out of the heavens, and he's going to come down and tread upon the high places of the earth. That's a phrase high places that's used in different parts of scripture to refer to idolatry that had been set up among God's people or to refer to worldly prosperity and power, and that's what's interesting about the context here, in Micah, he's actually speaking prophesying these words in the middle of prosperity among God's people, material prosperity, but they were spiritually bankrupt and Micah knew the judgment and wrath were coming and would come if God's people continued and rebellion against him. And this is one of those places that we see all over the Bible where God warns us not to be lulled to sleep or deceived by prosperity specifically worldly prosperity. Jesus says over and over again that a great reversal is coming. Think about the way he describes the rich man and Lazarus, this rich man who had everything the world could offer and was basically ignoring the poor outside his house and the poor, Lazarus with nothing in this world, and when they find themselves beyond this world, it's a total reversal and this poor man is with the lord and Lazarus in hell. So let's not be deceived by material prosperity in this world, not that material possessions are bad. They're good gifts from God to be used for what will matter forever. And so we pray God to help us to not be deceived by prosperity, comfort, the things of this world, please keep us from thinking that because we have this or that we are secure God, please help us to see the things of this world as you see them to see what matters most in this world and to put our hope in you to find our security in you to put our trust in you.

The Scripture Study Project
"micah" Discussed on The Scripture Study Project
"Week, Jonah and Micah. A little bit different this week. I don't have crystal with me. And I'm going completely off the cuff. This is just me opening my scriptures and sharing what I've studied. I haven't written out a script for a podcast episode. Usually we're a little bit more thoughtful and putting together an outline and how we want to talk. But there's an idea in here that has captivated me and I didn't want to wait to record and dilute my thought or my feeling by trying to write it all down. So maybe you've had experiences like that. But if this is less of an experience for you, then just move on by and forgive me an odd week. But I want to start actually in the book of Micah and we'll come back to Jonah. Because there's an idea in Micah that encapsulates something that I feel like we've been studying Kristen and I over the past couple of weeks in these minor prophets, the book of 12. And Micah, as one of them shares a very similar thought. So this is Micah chapter 6 versus 7 and 8. And it says, will the lord be pleased with thousands of rams or with 10,000s of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath showed thee O man what is good? And what doth the lord require of thee? But to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with God. If you remember Jesus was once. Caught in a group of scribes and pharisees and he leveled some pretty harsh criticisms at them, calls them hypocrites. This is in Matthew 23, which the Greek word hypocrite means a play actor, you're pretending you're putting on a face that doesn't true to what's inside. But as part of that criticism, this is Matthew 23 23, says to them. Well, when do you scribes and pharisees, hypocrites? For you pay tithe of mint and of anise and cumin and have omitted the weightier matters of the law. Now, if you're a scriber of Ferris up to that point, you're thinking this is a logical critique because they do this to each other all the time. They nitpick which part of the law they are obeying and which one they are not obeying and there's all these kind of interwar between the different sects of Judaism about what's more important, which traditions which laws which sections of scripture more important. So if you were to stop there, you would think, well, this is just Jesus. A Jew critiquing other Jews the same way that they critique each other. What probably surprised them was him quoting Micah 6 8 at least in part. And pointing out to them that the most important part of the law, the weightier matters of the law that he says are judgment, mercy and faith. These ought you to have done, and not to leave the other, and to leave the other undone.

"Looking back on everything, I think the most promising or fulfilling or successful things happen from just authentic place without some grand vision or some grand aspiration of becoming something massive. I just wanted to show my nephew that astronauts could be black. And the only way I could do that was on a canvas. So from the age of three, my guest today, Micah Johnson. He knew that he wanted to be a professional baseball player when he grew up. And from that moment, he literally lived baseball 24/7. Every moment of his waking hours, and in 2012, as a young adult, his dreams came true when the Chicago White Sox drafted him. But what might didn't know was that a truer calling in life was just getting started. A couple years later, he was traded to the LA Dodgers, and Micah almost on a large discovered painting, something that had never been any part of his life. Art was just not a part of his world. He was all baseball all the time. But something about it, it called to him in a way he never saw it coming. And now, while his full-time job was pro baseball, drawing and painting and creating art, it became a new, increasingly consuming passion. But it was a single moment when his young nephew came to him and asked him whether black people could be astronauts that changed everything. In response, Micah painted this moving depiction of a young confident black boy in an oversized astronaut helmet ready for adventure as a way to not just answer yes. But create a powerful visual depiction of courage and possibility. At around the same time, Micah was feeling called to bring his baseball career to a close, and go all in on this new passion around art. But no longer a novelty as a pro athlete slash painter, he found his art hard to sell. He was really struggling until everything came together when that character he'd painted for his nephew. Met this emerging world of NFTs, crypto art, web three, and the power of digital aspirational movements. And he turned that painting into a character named anku, that then began to build a world and a community and an enterprise and a movement around it. And Micah's work has centered now around empowering young African American kids to see the possible and dream without limitations. Micah began releasing NFTs in January of 2020. And by the way, we're going to talk about what that thing NFT is. So you can actually understand it. You've probably heard it floating around in the ether a lot lately. And in February 2021, aku's message became a viral sensation. And the first NFT ever option to become a major motion picture film. As we air this conversation, Micah is just coming off helming a 15,000 ft² immersive multidisciplinary experience in Miami's art Basel called aku's world. We dive into all of this in today's conversation, along with a bit of a mini primer on these mysterious things called NFTs and crypto art and web three which has been creating quite a stir these days and becoming a growing fascination of mine as well. So excited to share this conversation with you. And a quick note before we dive in. So at the end of every episode, I don't know if you've ever heard this, but we actually recommend a similar episode, so if you love this episode at.

"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.

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.

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 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.

"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.

"Mike. Take us back now. You're nineteen years old you you kind of stumble onto this baptist minister in florida. And you're trying to convert him to the mormon faith and you kind of bumped into the wrong baptist minister because this guy because there are many baptist ministers you could run into who wouldn't wouldn't have pushed back in the way that he did probably so what happens at this point Do you continue meeting with him or do you. Just go read the bible on your own. Yes so after his challenge to approach the new testament like a child. I i accepted this invitation but it wasn't in a humble or a childlike faith. It's because i believed in my own arrogance that i could prove the mormon church truth through reading the bible exclusively and so in 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.

"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. Are you concerned about memory loss for you or a loved one. Viva lords founder prayed.

"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..

That's, that's going to do it for the short abbreviated version of the Cowboys beat podcast. Just talk about Micah Parsons again. Overall, I'm a fan of pick from a standpoint of From a lot of different people. I've talked to you got the best defense to play this draft, okay? 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.

"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.

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.
