"And I think that's what we need to do in our own time. Engage not escape. Well, I mean, of course, this is the history of Europe, the history of the world is that the Christian faith, more and more finds its way into every sphere. And then transforms the world. I mean, hospitals were started by Christians. Most people aren't aware that all of these things that we now somehow take for granted, they didn't always exist. And that people of faith brought them into existence when we talk about self government when we talk about respecting the individual, the sanctity of human life, all of these ideas come out of the Bible and took many of them a long time to come out of the Bible and to overtake the lies and the confusion. But it's undeniable. It's the history of the modern world. And it's just so funny that we are living in a time when people are divorcing the things that are really the fruits of Christian faith from the Christian faith and then setting them at odds with the Christian faith. I mean, you can see this in the world of medicine. We now have doctors and medical professionals practically bullying women into aborting their children or into suggesting that a young woman have a sex change operation. It's an extraordinary thing once you become unmoored from the truth of God, it's an awful thing. So it's kind of important to me that you've written this book, truth changes everything because we need to remind ourselves of what is true and where we get what we know to be good, where it came from. It's exactly right. No nation has ever gone as far in the direction of error as ours has gone and survived unless it reclaimed truth. And who's going to do this? Except for people who not only recognize the truth exists, the facts are there. Science and history are real. But that Jesus, as a person, came into the flesh. And he is here with us, even in the times of crisis that we face. That's the hope of the Christian message. And Eric, it is there, Brian grim is a very well respected sociologist. He found that if you take all of the things that Christians do to make the world better, it adds up in America alone to $2.67 trillion of economic value. That would make it about 20% of the United States economy. There are a 130,000 addiction recovery programs at churches in the United States of America. You go on down the list and you think, Christians are doing the right things, but don't get discouraged. Don't think that in times of crisis we just have to give up because it's all over. I want to come right back to the point where you just got a short segment folks. Don't go away. The book is truth changes everything. Doctor Jeff Myers of summit ministries. Hey there folks talking to our friend doctor Jeff Myers with summit ministries, the new book is truth changes everything. Jeff, at the end of the last segment, you were talking about something and I thought we need to give that a little bit more time. Please say that again what you were saying, it's so important. You know, Eric, I think I've heard a lot of people say, well, you know, that's all Christian history, but Christians today aren't doing anything that really makes a difference. And I was mentioning that there's this well-known, very well respected sociologist named Brian grim, who just decided to look at that. And he found that if you add up the economic value of all the things Christians just in the United States are doing. It adds up to $2.67 trillion of economic value every year, which would make it about 20% of the United States economy. There are a 130,000 addiction programs that are based in churches in the United States of America. The United States government gives away about $33 billion in aid to the overseas poor American Christians give away $44 billion every year in economic aid. So we are doing a lot of the right things Eric. I just think people get so discouraged and they think, truth is times of crisis will never be able to survive this. Just be like the people in history who believe that Jesus is the truth. Be the very best you that you can be and whatever vocation you're called to. And then God does the work. I come away from this feeling a lot more optimistic than when I started. Well, listen, the negativity and the hopelessness that a lot of Christians are kind of giving voice to, it is sinful folks. It is wrong. We are in a battle. And if you can not be a happy warrior, praising God in the midst of the battle of all you can do is say, we're losing, we're losing. Have you seen the polls or whatever? Who cares? Your job is to do the right thing with joy, unto God, knowing that he's going to use it. And I really have to say, you know, Jeff, that so many people who have that attitude, they're actually making the problem worse, ironically, because they're saying, well, what's the point in fighting? We've lost the battle. You will lose the battle if you don't fight. And if you have that negative attitude and you always focus on these negative things because everywhere I look, I get invited to all of these events where I'm the speaker at something recently I was in Houston speaking at an event for the mighty oaks foundation, unbelievable heroes, a guy named Chad robicheaux, they bring the love of Jesus and the message of the gospel to warriors dealing with PTSD. It is an overwhelmingly successful ministry completely funded by Christians who believe in giving to help those who are suffering. And I thought to myself, the good that that one organization is doing, all of the pregnancy centers around the country, everywhere I look, I see hope, I see people living out their faith. It's what you just said. People living out their faith. It's not going to be covered by The New York Times. They are living out their faith. They're putting their money and their time for God's services to help strangers and it's a beautiful thing. And we need to know that that's God's will for us. We're not supposed to sit on our hands and complain and think, well, I better get my beef jerky and my water purification tablets and go hide in the caves because we've lost the battle. We've not lost the battle, but if you have that attitude, we may lose the battle because of that attitude. The book is truth changes everything. We just got seconds left for whom did you write the book? This is for the average reader. This is not for youth ministry, obviously. No, this is for people who wonder what difference they can make in times of crisis. And the message of truth changes everything is, times of crisis are the very best time in all of history to stand up and speak the truth. We live in the best time imaginable. Amen and God calls it calls us to this battle for such a time as this. This is a book of hope. Truth changes everything by doctor Jeff Myers. Jeff, thank you so much for your time. Thank you.

"If you used to cry. Used about walking hey there folks, as you know, most people in America are under the delusion that truth is kind of up to the individual that it's subjective. There's no such thing as the truth that it's your truth or my truth, which most of us know in 5 minutes you can figure out that doesn't make sense, either one plus one equals two, either there are things that are either true or aren't, but we've kind of the zeitgeist tells us, well, that's an old idea. It's not an old idea. It's called truth. Truth is not something that's malleable. What your favorite ice cream is or your favorite color. Those are things that we can have different opinions on. But there is this thing called truth that's come under attack. So it's one of the reasons I'm so proud of my friend doctor Jeff Myers with some administration has written a book called truth, changes everything. So Jeff, let's talk about some more of the stories in truth changes everything. What other spheres have been affected by men and women of faith? If you trace back even things like justice. So it probably goes without saying, but if there's no such thing as true, there's no such thing as justice. Justice is only your opinion. It is kind of like the ice cream that you choose to eat. And Peter I'm sorokin who founded the sociology department, Harvard University said, look, if you give up on the idea of absolutes, the only thing you have left is physical force. So you end up in a brutal kind of world just because you don't want to acknowledge that truth exists. Now, that doesn't make it easy to find. But people, I went back into the 1940s in the aftermath of World War II. The United States was in a position of having to try the Nazis. Well, what were they going to try them based on because the Nazis defense was everything we did was inside of our sovereignly controlled territory. And so it was our nation. You can't tell us what to do. And by the way, by what standard are you going to judge us? Are you going to say there is an absolute standard of right or wrong? Or do we all get to decide what is true for ourselves? And the American prosecutors were seized with indecision in the situation. They didn't know how to approach it. What they finally decided is, basically, because we won, we get to judge you. Well, which begs the question, if the Nazis had won, would they get to judge us? You see, and that was the situation they went through. Out of that time came the United Nations charter for human rights. And if you look at it, it's really interesting. It says, there are certain rights. These are just human rights. Humans have this value. But if you look at the introduction to the document, it says, because the signing nations agree on this, it is true. Not because it's actually true and we have discovered and now know that it's true. But just because we agree on it, which obviously means if they didn't agree on it, it wouldn't be true. So you look all the way back and there's some amazing people in history who go to is an example. It was a guy was a child prodigy, developed what we think of as international law. You look at people like Samuel Rutherford, who was a Presbyterian pastor, wrote a book called book called lex Rex, the law is the king, King Charles the second, was so angry at him. He sent his soldiers to arrest them, and he was going to bring him back to London, put him on trial, give him a fair trial and hang them as they say. And Samuel Rutherford died before the soldiers arrived. And said, I have been summoned by a higher authority. Those were his words on his deathbed. But that book lex Rex, all of a sudden, you know, the horses out of the barn. The king is not the law anymore, the law is the king. All of that Eric was the heritage of Christians who just believed that Jesus is the truth. Because in Greek times, yeah, truth exists, but you can't discover it because there's nothing personal about it. It's so other. It is so out there. But it was Christians who came along and said, no, no, truth is right here with us. It changed the way they viewed human nature, changed the way they develop medicine and charity and all of these things. You know, Catherine of Siena is one of the people I talk about in the book, just a wonderful story of a woman who ran toward people who were dying from the plague rather than away from them. And she was asked, why? Why are you doing that? You're going to die. Why are you running toward people who are sick? And she said, well, Jesus is with the suffering and I want to be with Jesus. So if you want to be with Jesus, you got to go toward the suffering, not away from them..

"Ever. So you talk about music, you talk about science, what else do you talk about in this book? What's called truth changes everything. Yeah, and truth changes everything I decided we have to tackle politics. I get it. I know a lot of people think that it's just so irritating to keep talking about politics over and over again. But, you know, take, for example, the founding fathers of the United States of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, 51 of them, possibly 53 of them were known to be believing Christians. And of the larger group of 204 founding fathers, virtually all of them were members of Christian denominations. Now, obviously, going to church doesn't make you a Christian, but it does change what you look at for your founding sources. And one political science history professor, Donald Lutz, looked at 15,000 documents, the founding fathers quoted from. And he found that they quoted from the Bible more than all of the others put together. A lot of people today think, oh, you know, we have the freedom to reject God in this country. And with God's, you know, yeah, we say sure we pledge of the pledge of legions and God is here and there in God we trust. But that's all just historical stuff that doesn't really matter, but to the founders it made a great deal of difference because they thought there were principles in the law of Moses that could help make a great society. Now, Eric, I majored in political science in college. No one ever told me that. No one ever told me that it was the law of Moses, the ten commandments and so forth that formed the basis of the greatest nation on earth, but that's what happened. Well, were they act like it's kind of incidental that it's not central and I wrote a book called if you can keep it where I really discovered in the course of writing that book, what you're talking about in this book is that it is the truth of the Bible that leads us to be able to be self governing. So anybody who thinks I think self governing and liberty, it's great stuff. What does it have to do with faith? Whether you like it or don't, it has absolutely everything to do with faith and even if you're not a person of faith, you need to know history and you need to know that this is true. You need to know how it works, how it came about and how it could not have come about otherwise..

"We need your support, the need is great. It's time to donate us now. Thank you and God bless you. Folks welcome back we're talking to our friend doctor Jeff Myers who's written a book called truth changes everything how people of faith can transform the world in times of crisis. So Jeff, this is a book of stories and I love that. It's great to communicate in stories, tell us who are some of the figures that you mentioned in this world and how they're faith came to transform a certain field or a certain period in which they lived. You know, Eric, one of my favorite stories in the book and one that I had not heard told before was of Antonio Vivaldi. He was a priest, not a very, not very good at his job because he was so consumed with music. He would in fact be conducting a mass and just leave right in the middle to go right down some musical passages. And the head of his diocese took compassion on him, said he can't help. He's not in his right mind because he's a musician. And he wondered how he could take his Christian vocation is calling to be pastoral. And his desire to be a musician and put them together will Eric, he ended up in Venice, becoming a composer for orphans. There's a large orphanage in Venice called hospitale Della pietta thousands of boys and girls would be dropped off there because they had physical defects or maybe their mothers were involved in processing. Where is it in Florence Venice? It's in Venice. Invent it's in Venice. And what time period did Vivaldi live in? So this was the early 1600s. Okay. Well, the boys could go out and get a job at age 16, but what about the girls? There was no potential for them. Many of them had physical defects. They had all kinds of difficulties. They would end up on the streets. They didn't have enough money for a dowry, so they couldn't get married. So he turned them, Eric into the finest orchestras inquires in all of Europe. And I was first read in Rousseau's book, the confessions, he mentions having gone there and you kind of trace this back and you realize the Vivaldi became a great composer because he had to compose so much to keep all of his choirs and orchestras of orphans busy, and they literally traveled. They traveled throughout Europe. They became the most famous musicians of the age. And Vivaldi became so productive as a result. You know, writing concerto, which is an orchestral piece that features a solo instrument, is like writing a book. It's very difficult to do. Well, he wrote 500 concertos that we know of and many of them are specifically designated as having been developed for certain performers who were in his orphan choirs in orchestras. And one secure period developed a new concerto every two weeks. So it's this great convergence of ministry and music where he became a great composer because he had to fulfill his ministry. These young girls received a purpose in the sense of direction in life they otherwise never would have had. And now we know of the baroque period of music as having transformed the whole musical landscape for all of history and it was Antonio Vivaldi along with Johann Sebastian Bach who did it. I was going to say and he would have been a contemporary roughly of box and Bach was a man of tremendous Christian faith who created some of the greatest music that's ever been created. And it really did come out of his faith as well. He wasn't just, I mean, because we have this idea at this modern idea of the artist that goes off and expresses himself, but these were men of profound faith. And writing in the case of Bach, it was for it was church music. It was ecclesiastical, music. It was meant to draw people closer to God and some of it is obviously the greatest music.
Dr. Jeff Myers and Eric Discuss Faith Making Science Possible
"Of Robert Boyle, the founder of modern chemistry, that kid could have turned out to be a trust fund baby. I mean, he grew up in this 20,000 ft² castle that had been built by king John, his father had purchased it from sir Walter Raleigh. And he said, now I'm not going to live that way. I have all the money that I could ever need, but I'm not going to live that way. In fact, he wrote a book called the Christian virtuoso how to be an experimental philosopher that was his word for scientist. And be one who glorifies God and loves Jesus at the same time. These people did not see a conflict between their science and faith. In fact, it was their faith that made their science possible. And Boyle invented, I always forget that the branch of science that he invented, but these are as seminal as it gets. I mean, without these folks, there is no science. Modern science was invented by profound men of Christian faith. We need to know that. We need to say it over and over and over again to those people who would lie and distort the truth and claim somehow that faith is at odds with science. That's not even close to true. That's what I kind of find so funny, Jeff, is that it's the very opposite
Dr. Jeff Myers: 'Speak Your Truth' vs 'Seek the Truth'
"Know, you think about language itself when people say today speak your truth instead of saying, as we used to seek the truth, they're saying there's no truth that actually exists. And that's now a majority viewpoint. The balance has now tipped and the most of the people in this country now say that truth is up to the individual. If that's true, then there's no point even communicating that or talking about it because our words have no meaning if there is no such thing as truth. So it starts with language,
Dr. Jeff Myers Discusses His New Book 'Truth Changes Everything'
"Myers, welcome back. Eric, great to be back with you. I'm amazed you have another book out, a new book. It's called truth, changes everything. And that is itself simply true. That when you're dealing with truth, it affects everything. It changes everything. It touches everything. So what is this book about? I mean, it's a fascinating title, but what's the subtitle? Well, the subtitle is how people of faith can transform the world in times of crisis. So looking at the times, I just thought, you know, I want to go back in history and see, is it ever been this bad? And it turns out it's been a lot worse. At various times in history, then what we experience at the present time, and it was people of faith who stepped in and really changed the whole course of the world. And it was just that it was the truth has found in Jesus. So they believe truth exists truth exists as a logical proposition. It exists in mathematical formulas, but it also exists in a person. It's Jesus, and people who believe that Jesus is the truth, are the ones who gave us modern science, the arts, education, our justice system, our political structures, everything that we take for granted that we don't want to lose.

Malachi, we're going to have him on the program to discuss this. He is running a marathon a day, did you hear that? Ladies and gentlemen, 26.2 miles per day. Trying to set the Guinness Book world record, okay? I think the record is 60 days. Anyway, the point is, he's up to like day 24 or something like that. So about four days ago, I ran with him, of course I ran a much, I only ran about 5 and a half miles with him, but I had a video of myself I posted it on Instagram, and it was just so fun to be a part of what I think will be an historical effort. So, but he was there with Doug must Rihanna, it was incredible. So then after that, Suzanne and I drove to York, Pennsylvania to visit my sister in law Joanne and my brother in law drew, and we hung out with them. Then we drove to, well, I was going to say valley forge, actually, it was king of Prussia, PA. And we went to a hotel there. And the next morning at 5 a.m., I'm not a morning person. I woke up at 5 a.m. to speak at an evangelistic breakfast. In king of Prussia, it's a valley forge prayer breakfast. And it was delightful. It was so delightful, but then later that day, I'm sorry, when I was done signing books, we had to jump in a car and motor up to Manhattan to pick up little Georgie. And then that was like two hours in traffic. Then we had to go two hours to Danbury, Connecticut. So I was so exhausted after getting up that hour and driving all that day that I just about died on what day was that? Thursday, Friday, Friday. Friday, right? But I got to tell you this. When I was in Connecticut, my father tells me he says, did you see the flowers downstairs? This is no joke. This is like out of some fairytale. I decided sometime I think in the early summer that we needed to have some morning glories around the house in Connecticut, Danbury. So I went to two nurseries and bought a bunch of morning glories and planted them everywhere, okay? They weren't growing too successfully, eventually they growed, and then they really took off because they really grow. But no flowers. It was the most bizarre thing. I said, that's the whole point. We've got vines, but no flowers. And they grew, they grow like weeds at some point, right? My father says, go downstairs. I go downstairs into the basement. This is no joke. These things are so aggressive. It's like animals. They're so aggressive. They somehow found chinks in the wall. The windows are all closed. They grew into the house. Into the basement, it was like sleeping beauty, like a hundred years of thorns and stuff. It was the most bizarre thing. And there were flowers inside the house. They just did some warmth, but only inside the house. But it was so crazy. So in some time with my mom and he did that doing good then? My dad's doing all right. I mean, just a blessing to be with them. There's so much more. Yeah, you know, Salem now dot com. We got to get this in because there are two great movies. No vacancy. Starring dean Cain and Sean young and also border battle. Charlie Kirk is involved in that so you know it's crazy. I forgot about that. I want to talk about all kinds of films, but the first place to start Salem now dot com. If you're not aware of it, now you are a Salem now dot com. I want to talk about films. I want to talk about everything Salem now dot com, check it out. Happy reformation day. And we'll see you. When you're looking for your freedom your body seems to care if you can't find the door in case you haven't been paying.

Sorry, today's the 31st, which means it's what we call all hallows eve or Halloween. All hallows eve, yeah, a couple of things we got to talk about with all hallows eve with Halloween. But we also have to say that typically October 31st is celebrated as reformation day. That's right. Why? Why? Why? That's what I want to know why. Well, it's pretty simple. Everybody says that's the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of the castle church in wittenberg, except guess what? They're probably never happened. At least it didn't happen on that day. The reason everybody says it happened on that day is because on that day, Martin Luther did something we know he did on that day. He posted a letter to the archbishop of Mainz and anyway, it's all in my book. If you subscribe to my newsletter, I sent I sent a whole thing today about Martin Luther. I've been reading my own Martin Luther book. I know. After I wrote it 5 years ago. That's right. It came out 5 years ago. Because it was a 500th anniversary. And I thought, you know, maybe I should reread it, or should read it, 'cause I tend not to read my books. But I've been reading it and it's kind of funny because I've been loving it because there's so much crazy stuff in it. Like really funny, crazy. Unbelievable, but it's every word is true. I don't like it when people exaggerate or even shade the truth. It should be exactly what we know and I debunk a lot of stuff in the 5 years ago, I interviewed you. We played it as a fun facts Friday, and there might be a surprise for listeners tomorrow. We might be re airing both eyes. There might be no fear. All saints day, we might be trick or treat.

We've been praying for you guys. I know you really got hit hard. What should Pelosi do now that she's going to get fired? I think she should be the new face and voice of grey goose vodka. Thank you.

Hey Bill, how you doing? What should Pelosi be after she gets fired a speaker?

FL Gov. Ron DeSantis Talks Hurricane Ian Recovery Effort
"Desantis, I was watching your disaster relief operations. And I said to myself, this is a man who sat through many, many staff briefings, decision briefs, course of action briefs. How did your military service training and experience. Help you with this response to hurricane Ian? Well, I think a couple of things. I mean, number one, what happens when we go into a state of emergency for a hurricane, I designate the division, the director of the division of urgency management is kind of the chief coordinating officer. So he's reporting directly to me and then what we do is all other state agencies effectively report directly to him. So we have a clear chain of command. It used to be that you'd have someone kind of doing disaster and then like the governors having to like talk separately to all these agencies. And that's just not how we do it in Florida, all of those people are all hands on deck. We have a very clear chain of command when we're in a state of emergency. And so you see things like your staging folks, our National Guard as staged, ready to go for search and rescue. We have urban search and rescue teams that were literally on the road at midnight on the Wednesday the storm hit driving through tropical storm force winds to be able to get to places like Fort Myers beach. We also have Florida fish and wildlife officers who these are waterborne operators who will go and when you have barrier islands that are in distress, they're there. So they're all there ready to go and then when the storm passes immediately go into search and rescue operations and I'm not necessarily in control of utility companies, but because we're marshaling every resource in the state, we had 42,000 linemen that were in the state of Florida. Many of them from places like Texas and Alabama, staged and ready to go, which was also a difficult thing because if you remember the track of the storm at one point, there were models taking it to the Florida Panhandle. It ended up going in Southwest Florida cutting across the state. So we have a big long Peninsula. You've got to be very nimble. But

"We have to be bold. Is a powerful example of what we're talking about right now. Eric could be because the biblical perspective is that every human being bears God's image, racial unity is the goal. And I remember confronting some time ago some CRT advocates saying, is what are you doing that's going to bring about racial unity? And they just stared at me, Eric, all of a sudden I realized they don't want racial unity. They want racial division. That's the Marxist perspective. Don't bring people together because then we can't have a revolution. We want people fighting with one another. That's what's going to bring about the revolution. And so until Christians wise up and think, we're the only ones who have a biblical message of redemption and of unity and of people working together. In the educational space, Eric, every single study that's ever been done on how you help students of different racial backgrounds be together in the same school as you have them work together on problem solving in projects together side by side, where they have mutual goals. You don't try to help them divide themselves out, making one feel guilty, making the other feel superior. That is, that's counterproductive. We all know this. So it's crazy that the Bible has all these solutions. They're just there on the tray waiting for us to deliver them to our culture and we don't want to do it. And not only is it counterproductive, not only does it lead to more racial division, but ironically, it's unbiblical. I mean, this idea of trying to make a group feel guilty. That is anti biblical folks. If it was biblical, I'd be all for it. But there are a lot of people because they don't know the scripture. They kind of buy into that. And even people who do know the scriptures, we can all make these mistakes, Tim Keller, whom I revere, said, oh, we should read everything we get our hands on about critical race theory. And that's like saying you should look at all the pornography you can, just so you understand where those people are coming from. It's like, no, no, that's bad advice. You need to know that some of this stuff is really pernicious. And you don't need to spend your time because what you do is you're in a sense opening a door to say, well, maybe they have something to teach us. And well, maybe they do, but maybe they're leading millions of stray, which is very frightening. So I think that they're, I think, Jeff, there are pastors that are slowly waking up to this and realizing we didn't know where this was headed. So I think there's a lot of Martin niemoller's out there who are slowly seeing what is happening and maybe privately they're coming to their senses and their understanding they have to speak out. But the poll that you have here, it just gives me hope. I was thrilled when I read this. Yeah. Yeah, me too. Well, I think there's so much here. And pastors are starting to get it. And at some administrators, we're going to be able to help. So you come to summit dot org. For instance, we have a brand new free small group course to help people in your church get a biblical worldview called now we live. It comes out in September and this course will just you can use it with all of your small groups. There's a free task for the people can take to see where they are in their worldview. And it's featuring Kirk Cameron who's an actor, Lee strobel, who's a Christian apologist, Alisa Childers, and lots of other authorities who help people. Oh, this is what a biblical world is. This is how you develop. This is how you apply scripture. We can do this. This is not an impossible goal. In fact, we could do it in a month and a half if we were really thoughtful about it. I'm just so grateful for you and for some administrative folks, please go to summit dot org summit dot org. Doctor Jeff Myers, thank you, and God bless you, my friend. Thanks, Eric.

"I mean, it feels like judgment, frankly. Well, you think it tried to take a chest analogy. Let's say you're playing chess and you think I'm doing really well because I've got all my pawns left, but all your rooks have been captured. Your knights have been captured, your bishops have been captured. And that's sort of where we are, the media has been captured. The popular culture has been captured. Governmental institutions have been captured. And while conservatives, I would say traditional values people, what I think of as common sense people in America, about two thirds of the population, while these people are more likely to vote, they're significantly less likely to be involved in other ways. So you can vote all you want, but if nobody ever runs for school board who has strong values, where will you ultimately go? If in your corporation, you decide I'm going to share my faith with somebody else. Well, great. Well, the entire HR department has been taken over by people whose values are exactly the opposite of yours. So we have to do the daily work of getting involved in all of these things. Otherwise, Christians are going to pay the price for a hundred years of non involvement. And you mentioned Nazi Germany as an example, America has this unique. We have this new unique place we have a unique opportunity. Nothing like this has existed in the history of humanity, where everyday people can intentionally involve themselves in actually make a difference. Why would we miss that opportunity? Well, and I have to say, a lot of good people have made terrible mistakes. These are people that I would consider my Friends, and they have oftentimes said that, well, I don't want people to think, you know, I am vulgar if I vote for that candidate or that candidate folks, if you do not understand, I mean, JFK brought prostitutes into The White House. Let's just start with JFK. We have tremendously fallen leaders. We're voting for people to represent us. If you think you can vote for someone and be pure in whomever you vote for, you're playing a game and you're more worried about dirtying your hands than about the people who are going to be affected by the policies of the people for whom you vote.

"Otherwise you're disobeying God. Now, that's a huge piece, Jeff. What you just said there, right? I read, I have a book coming out called letter to the American church where I try to break down how is it that so many in the church got confused on this and have really been misapplying Romans 13 and misunderstanding it. Because many leaders, many Christian leaders are misapplying it and misunderstanding it just as they did in the 30s, which led to the satanic nightmare of the Holocaust and of what Hitler was able to do because believers misunderstood the scriptural mandate. It's a horrifying thing when the church messes up. And when we kind of buy the lies of the world and we say, well, I'm not going to be involved in this because God is looking to us to be involved in this. If you care about the poor, if you care about the marginalized, you better get involved in all this stuff. And you better speak up against those who are doing things that, whether they know it or not, are harming those people. So this is something that it's almost like things had to get this bad for people to wake up. But I mean, this statistic almost 30% of Americans getting more involved, I think, wow. This is just good news. And I hope that number increases. I do too. There are a handful of people who are getting less involved. And then 30 percent, a third of Americans say they're more involved in two years ago. One of the things I learned from you, Eric years ago, is that the church should serve as the conscience of the nation. And I think that's what we are hopefully starting to see happen here is that Christians are starting to wake up. But a lot of people are waking up progressives are becoming more involved. These involvement numbers are across the board. It's like everybody is amped up right now. Almost like they're preparing for a pitched battle to make sure their viewpoint wins. So there's not time to let off the gas to represent what you understand about God's nature and character and how to bring that into the public sphere. Well, and there's a lot of reasons that people of faith are not involved. One of them, which I talk about a little bit in my new book, is they basically fall into the pietist fallacy. I don't think I use that term, but it's pietistic to say, I'm worried about me and my holiness, more than I'm worried about what's going on out there. So if the Gestapo comes to the door in the 1930s and says, are you hiding a Jew? Rather than worry about the Jew who will be taken and murdered, they will say, well, I don't want to lie, the scripture says, don't lie. So I'm going to say, yes, yes, I'm hiding at you. Please come get the two torture and kill the Jew. What do we think God thinks of that? If you're pietistic and you're obsessed with your own Salvation more than you are with what God's heart is about, then you've missed it. You've made a false choice. And I think that a lot of people in America say, well, I can't vote for that candidate because he said this or you think folks. You have to look at the big picture. We the people, we are the government. There is no government. We are the government. And if you are not acting, if you do not behave as a free citizen and get involved, you are turning over what God has given you to do to someone else who is not going to reflect your values. And you will be held responsible for that. I mean, silence in the face of evil is itself evil. There's no safe path. You have to try. You have to get involved. And so I really think that a lot of people are waking up. But Jeff, things had to get so bad. I mean, things are falling apart at levels that most of us couldn't even believe that in no time everywhere you look, you see disaster absolute disaster..

"Are a lot of people who say, don't get involved in politics because they represent interests of people whose interests would be harmed if Christians did get involved in politics. There are some good hearted people who just say, you know, Christians should not be involved in things like that. And they're consistent. They don't want Christians to be police officers. They don't want Christians to serve in the military. It's a very small group overall of Christians, but in America, I assume most of the audience we're talking to you right now is would be made up of Americans. But in this country, Abraham Lincoln said, we have government of the people by the people and for the people. So how are you going to obey your authorities, Romans, chapter 13? You have to be involved. Otherwise you're disobeying God. Now, that's a huge piece, Jeff. What you just said there, right?

That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you.

Which is part of the reason I want to have you back just to continue talking about this because there is so much here and it's beautiful, but some of it is deep when you get into talking about how there's the object and then the word for the object and then the meaning, I thought, wow, that's that's heavy. And it's trinitarian, and you're getting you're getting to the, what did you say is metaphors all the way down or something like that? It's a fractal. Everything that every single thing is a metaphor. I mean, it's heavy stuff, but because you're talking Andrew about the nature of reality. You're talking about the very nature of reality. You're not talking about the nature of physical reality. You're talking about the nature of reality itself as God has created it. So it's beautiful. It's deep, it really is extraordinary. What you just talked about walking down the sidewalk, you know, and how the romantics began to figure this out. These poets that we are collaborating with reality. And creating a new thing, our lives. I mean, it is heavy stuff. It's beautiful and deep. But it is for everybody. As the gospels tell us, I mean, I've known people who do it without thinking. Most of the moms, most of the mothers, there's a lot in the book about motherhood and most of the people I've known who do it without thinking have been mothers with small children and they just invest their lives into that and suddenly they become joyful and they don't really know what it is, but it is this kind of love that is connecting them to the creation of the world that they're getting to do. I think men have a harder, another step they have to take. And I think we envy sometimes I know I envy mothers sometimes I complete involvement in life, but it can be done and Jesus was here to help us do it because when we do it, we connect to him and we become what he call the branch of the vine. You become a creative person, which you can't be on your own on your own, you're simply going to do what I did for many of the years of my life.

And then basically the years between that and The Pentagon were as you talked about some of these cool smaller roles in high profile projects, whether it's glorious bachelors for Quentin in 2009 or Bohemian Rhapsody, 2018, both best picture nominated films.
