"It's one of the coolest things ever with five G. coming virtual reality and gaming community and I mean man you want to talk about again I hate to say it was the business sector I want to invest in that stock like. The mission field part of the opportunity of digital for the future. where it gets a little bit board though is where one hundred percent at church planters. OUGHTA be missionaries should one hundred percent of missionaries be Church planters. And the answer is absolutely not. I don't think because that could be path the destruction where we're anybody could be a missionary and will. For. Jesus. Not Everybody really has that in the now, I'm going to bring back in the Nama ecclesial Aji whatever your minimum ecclesial. I'm not imposing what it is. But there are some dimension of Spiritual Authority. There's a dimension of organization and structure. There's let me use this. I know we're running out of time but I WANNA go back to where we started Ralph's three, twelve and one twenty. Think about this. Bob Buford who was a mentor to me a guy named lyle shower who is one of the great consultants ever? Will I'll said about Buford leadership network was just a couple of employees while said the Bob you've gotTA. Decide. Do. You want leadership not work to be 'cause based. based. Organization. Forever or do you want it to become an enterprise? And what he what he went on to tell Bob is a soon as you get somewhere close to four full time equivalent staff. Yeah she said Brie and a half. You start shifting from bank 'cause and Nisshin base. To in my words now, enterprise based okay, and if if we look at the difference between our 'cause based entity, a shop based or small business entity or an enterprise, now go back to your three twelve, one twenty. Three. Don't have to worry about organizational dynamics. They completely be focused on the mission or hand. And if you're always just working on three for disciple making you don't have all that baggage of having to. Figure out staff, where's the facility and how are we gonNa do this and how we're going to do that. But as soon as you're successful at the mission with three. All of a sudden you've got the twelve. And you gotta deal with the dynamics of the small business or the shop or whatever you WANNA call it. Now, it starts to introduce an organizational dynamic. Now. Guess what when you're successful with the twelve may reproduce and you grow you get the one TWANI and you're into an enterprise dynamic. Enterprise dynamic is the scale ability, the infrastructure, all star, and so when I say. Would we like to see a one hundred percent of missionaries be Church planners? Yes. But now, if we say do one, hundred percent missionaries have the ability to weed enterprises. We better be really careful because they could lead leave a path of destruction trying to do that. So I think that brings for me brings me back that ECCLESIAL AJI question of okay. It's become increasingly important to totally pour gas on on a firm. Really, cool missionary mission buildings. and. There's to be digital thing isn't the coolest missionary to me like it's easy to get excited.

"What's up, everybody? Welcome to lightning bolts. Another jackets really take our concerns and questions about Christianity and figure out how to kick him in the teeth. I'm Victor sassano your host. Here we go home welcome to part two of God is not your president. If you haven't listened to part one I encourage you to go do that first because we laid the groundwork for the conclusion, which is well this one so if you have listened to the last episode, but you can't remember a lot of it. Let's do a recap. So we talked about how in the book of Psalm for Samuel God had appointed judges instead of Kings over Israel and Israel decided they wanted the king and they lived like they had a King instead of God the kingdom of God, even though we're in America go under a democracy the kingdom of God is over that because God over everything and God operates in a theocracy, and he's appointed government leaders from presidents to Kings Congressman two Mayors to Police Officers Club. In Authority that we need to respect and acknowledge has authority over us. So talk about that. Last time we talked about was Romans 13 verses 1 through to which says I'll read it affects everyone must submit to governing authorities for all authority comes from God and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who are rebelled against Authority wage rebelling against what God has instituted and they will be punished. Not held accountable but punished and if you're a Believer technically that means you can't be punished with eternal damnation. So you'll be punished in this current life. Anyway, the question that we asked last month before we ended was what about corrupt government leaders? What about the the police brutality? What about Hitler? What about Faro? What about King Herod Pharaoh for one thing if we go by scripture was technically appointed by God, you know, the guy who enslaved all the Israelites and both had lead them out of the promised land. First of all, if that is if the Bible is completely true, which I believe it is that doesn't mean that God appointed Pharaoh Pharaoh did with his power was obviously not part of God's desire for the Israelites are for anybody under Federal rule to be subjected to Godly Authority comes with a Godly responsibility leaders. Don't always follow that however and same thing goes with Herod even though Herod was in effect appointed by God. He didn't use his authority to enact God's plan. However, however both pharaoh and Hera dead We're still used by God to bring the Israelites and the world respectively to Salvation. God can take anything and work it for our good and His glory out for Pharaoh. Got to the point Moses to be the instigator of Freedom the instrument of freedom for the Israelites. Someone a corrupt leader does arrive does have power. God will also remove them and deal with them either by his own power and instruction or by raising up somebody else about Hitler history. If I remember my history correctly Hitler was not appointed but took it by force and subterfuge still used him to turn for to turn the tide for good. Right and his rule was not complete and absolute. I will say if the person in Authority is breakout of the Ten Commandments that requires action. We were supposed to stand for righteousness and justice but only under direction from another Spiritual Authority if a leader is telling you to do something that is not immoral. Illegal or unscriptural you can do it and even if they were incorrect in their actions got the hold them responsible for telling you to do it, but will hold you not responsible because you obeyed the authorities had placed over you.

"Not only you're thinking mind. But also your feelings and ideally your body rate we wanted to be an embodied experience You're in a standing or sitting in a circle you're engaged in it's not just a spectator sport. Rape no different from sitting in a Pew always cues lined up listening to one person talk. We wanted to different format that it's really engaging, and then it goes the third thing which is transformative. If a religious experience of any kind I would say this is not transformative of you into a better more compassionate version of yourself I don't want anything to do is. I don't have an agenda of what someone else's religion is. I have an agenda for compassionate. That's my. and. I talk a lot about gentle persistence in persistent gentleness as ways of developing ourselves and ways of. Coming to be the people, we must hope to be a we look at routine in ritual in. So many of our life to me, it's kind of a conundrum to hasn't been allowed that up sometimes with the same thing with our spirituality and that's just my perception of it, but we get too caught up in the mock of the detail sometimes more about that. We're we're looking at that idea that we're looking so much at the dog. That were not looking at the things that truly service that truly build that compassion with us for ourselves and build a better version for ourselves and for others. And again, from me, that's an this a total hobbyhorse of mine time for the auto. Persistence. Persistence gentleness are really my pass. I would say. And, my league website my ministry, my work is on the way of the river and Zach idea of the river that changes the landscape more or less slowly coming on the weather. Is. Central to my sort of metaphor ideas about life. The water is persistent. It doesn't give out gas. Flowing while and the rock will give before the water us. Yes. No water water will find the way. Exactly. We think about. River eventually changes its course even though it's persistently flowing, it will change its course in. It will also change what's around it. Both things are true and that's true of human beings to like a unitarian universalism that we have a principal that says that we affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of existence of which we are all apart. and. That last part I think is super super important and we forget it with talk about the environment like it's out there somewhere in a national park, right which news first of all national parks are being in any way but other topic whereas we don't understand all the time that we are earth, we are part of our. One big ball of living organism and worse or cells in the body of earth and I have A. That I've reached a couple of times. Cells in the body of God in which I talk about how Human beings with our capacity. And Shift and change things. For the better for worse have some of the power of divine blessing and cursing at our hands all the talk I'm so intrigued by that because to me, it's looking at that angle of the free and responsible search for truth and me. That's right. It's another principal. We are all on a search for truth in means is interesting. What's important about a bat tired of what's important about that which is another principle of UNITARIAN, universalism is. The free in responsible part. Yes. The free part means that nine us has the. Spiritual Authority over another person and in circle wick sue versus important true Unitarian universalism to that nobody can tell anybody what serves theology has to be. At the same time, we have an obligation to conduct their own searches for treason meaning in a way that doesn't. Other Bulls, right? So I think that's actually a beautiful one of our principles that you out there. I love that UNITARIAN approach of being unified by the search for spiritual growth being guided by dynamic living tradition that's collaborative. That's working together to create better meaning federal purpose in life. That's the goal. Isn't that the goal that we all ideally would like to look for I don't think so. And I think I would've agreed received ten years ago. But I think now there's a great book called. God. Is Not one by Stephen Prospero and I'm sorry Steven if I'm mispronouncing your last name, that is about how different religions respond to different human needs and beliefs, and so I really think some people are after a quest. To be forgiven for their. Sins or shortcomings, and that's really different from now being on a search for meaning like can become a search for meaning, but it sometimes get stopped. Yeah. Yeah sometimes. Is. Rosy Hamstrung but sometimes, it's it doesn't so far enough for me it becomes a situation where people have spiritual authority over other people. Tell them what the meaning is and doesn't allow for the vast of the people in that religion to be honored free and responsible searchers in death is we see that all the time were caught more. Traditional struggle of EGO. Right Now. So I want to look at that strong emphasis that you know is being placed in regards to intellectual freedom inclusive love in the UNITARIAN. To me that's powerful. Yeah. I, like it down. It's an interesting because in UNITARIAN. Universalism. This constant tension between the individual and the community because there and we see in the United States all over the place because we're very individualistic culture and so we value the right of the individuals experience now, and sometimes that is at the detriment. Of.

"Want to hurt somebody that complete. Well, that's the focus and so those so much time and effort and here's another thing now off, you know, we looked into say this but you know, you you can have people on a choir that don't know a thing about salvation you can have people under quiet and don't know what they're not. I'm not saying people shouldn't sing to the glory of God. That's not what I'm saying alone could focus is to glorify. God knows something about somebody ought to know something about God that's not flow with that's not put fill a choir up with people off. Have no sense of Salvation. No, no, no, no spiritual rebirth when we when go all out to do that. We we have our phone numbers on the wrong thing that again, please don't misunderstand me folks and pastors. I know you won't but it is great to have a choir that can sing to the glory of God. Music is so important to our worship experience. This is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about when the focus is mostly on the entertainment aspect of our service and so people come to be entertained and not to hear the word of God. And so that falls to me back on leadership month that falls back on leadership. And when leadership is out of focus the folks they are leading is going to be on our Focus. Very good, very good. Now as we look at the goal of of discipleship in the local church. Should leadership be entrusted to anyone. Who appears to fit the bill it or are there should there be some criteria qualification definitely should have been some Criterion qualification sir. And just to go back to the last corner and the top this end as well and I agree wholeheartedly with what my brother said. It is said especially regarding the entertainment because I see that quite often and I think that's what the emphasis is and when people feel that because of other things that are going on in their lives education their money and so on and so forth often they feel that can bypass the biblical processes that are set up. In fact, they often feel that they don't have to be dead by fold and be trained through a process because leadership requires that it demands that so if a person comes in a neophyte a person just given his or her life, too. Prize and the next month that person is in a leadership position that I don't think the Bible teaches that that that's not a discipling scenario. So I just think that is happening in many instances where people may be good Community leaders or they may be great financial contributors. But those things don't necessarily mean that those people are disciples because disciples are going to seek to reflect Christ and to be like him, but if they bypass that process of being decides wage then how they going to disciple anyone else or is discipling a part of what that Ministry of whatever that organization is seeking to do. So, I think no to that altogether dead. Yeah, and and I would add that back to the first question that tied into this one about leadership leaders have to stress off. The church is a Learning Community First see that's what it's all about renewing of the mind putting in biblical truth from the day of person comes in and if leaders understand that the church is first and foremost a learning community learning about the kingdom of God learning about who I am in Christ learning what it means to follow Christ This is a outgrowth off a foundation of biblical discipleship and in regard to leadership absolutely. Nothing should come out the oven until Thursday. Oh, you know, this is a true story birth. Have a family member who joined the church and I was so glad to hear that. He had gotten say okay. Then the next week. I'm talking about 7 Days Later. Yeah, you said they made me a deacon in the church own story true story. I believe this is what we mean by the fact that everything in Christianity is a preparation of heart. And yeah, he loved handsome the Holy Spirit Works in a he prepares leaders. You spoke with Moses and Joshua Elijah and Elisha Paul and Timothy is always preparation for leadership people claim that says don't let them in leadership because of the inexperienced but in our time when we have instant instant mindsets, we think that can be instant leadership and it cannot happen no matter how long . Takes time and we're still in process no long. How long will you been in leadership? Right exactly. Obviously, you gotta reach a point where you are ready to assume the responsibilities of leadership that just takes time. There's no way around that a man. Yeah, you bring up a very good point it goes back to what we talked about at the very beginning a good leader must be a discipler and that good leader as a disciple as long be able to disciple others to bring them to spiritual bring them to spiritual maturity bring them from infancy to the Spiritual Authority and their relationship with Christ. Therefore. You can't just take a person that Just Surrender their life with Christ and I think if I'm I'm if I'm correct somebody correct me if I'm wrong that off. Talks about it. But Timothy Timothy, you can't be a novice and a novelist one that has not has not grown in their relationship with their spiritual relationship to a point where they are able to lead and disciple of others. That's right. Amen have to agree with that a hundred percent my goodness. I mean that's a scary proposition to wanted to make someone and leader. You know, as I think we said one time before that. How can how can one lead effectively if they have never learned.

"Like I can't remember who said it there's black theologian. Who talked about the diseased? What did he say? The Disease Social Imagination of America and basically what what he said like the reason like we can't imagine anything it's like it's also supported by psychology. The reason we can't imagine anything better for ourselves right now is because we're we're still in the middle of our trauma like an until like we start doing the work of forgiving ourselves of what we think we did like. We'll never he'll let me tell you. What though when you are willing like unwillingness is everything? It's just like your intent like this is another course in miracles thing is basically. Your intention doesn't mean anything. Your willingness is everything if you are willing to start rifling through your baggage few are willing to say I. I WanNa let this go like it's it's almost just like once you're willing to do something you it's like magic happens it's like Oh my God. I'm doing the thing I thought I could never do because I was willing. I don't and other things that he says. No No. It definitely definitely resumes and I mean. That's that's sort of something that I that's a word I always come back to. You is resonate. He no like what you're saying hits me and my get vibrates. You know like there's truth then that there is there's something about being open open to the change and being ready to put that for step forward and I mean it's not as if that is a trivial thing you know like that that takes time to get there for a lot of people and Mike and that and I think that's. It's it's a dual thing it's just like you're already there and this is your first step. It's that weird. It's a weird sort of paradox. Thing I think Pete Holmes was saying it on a couple of different PODCASTS. He's just like I wish people could just see that they're already pretty home. You know and I keep coming back to that thing of does it all just say come home like it's it's like it takes time to learn that your body is a home and that your body can be a home for you and that it's not just a flesh prison. I mean it's it's not a flush prison like it's not a prison like it's such. It's so beautiful and and that is something that I'm willing to to talk about for forever right and I've been blessed blessed with a sunny disposition as well as Wellbutrin Zoloft and I have no problem being everyone's cheerleader rate. Great I think that role suits very well and Mike and I always know your genuine whenever you post something whenever you put something up. That is an encouragement to someone. I I know that because I know you and I know we already talked about intention and how. It's not everything but I know that the intent behind what you're doing is is to encourage people in that is that's a wonderful thing and I'm glad you're out there doing the things that you're doing. I'm not crying you're crying thank you I received. That's very kind. Thank you. You're welcome and I'm I'm so glad that you on these. Last few years have had been so Productive for you in the very good sense of that word and that like the catalyst almost health scape of this You know like not just capitalist sort of you've done on these things in your years have been productive. It's that you've aw you produced again using that language of fruits like you've found something and moved from something bad something better better to something could. Yeah and I think that's really the the the crux of it is like. I've been reading star Hawks On the spiral dance and in it they talk about the birth of the world from From like an old religion perspective or the witch tradition and she I would say that the universe was not created but it was born. And so from that. It's like this idea. I keep thinking about that. Like how everything that it comes forth from within us. It's something that is not necessarily created but it's it's born of us and so it's almost I can see. It's it's the same thing it's just like you know rather than producing for like it's like we grew this. You know we've grown. We grew this thing together. And it's one of those things just like any any life is is tended by many farmers right and so it's like everyone's had a hand and for good or for ill you know people are always coming by our vines and dressing them however they want to use that language and such a fucking Christian God damn but that's the thing is like I am. I believe you when you say that because I see it as as well and I can't tell you how good it feels to say that like Everything that it's one of those things like I grew up. Hearing that gay people bull leg got AIDS and died and while that is that like you know the AIDS epidemic is a huge part of our collective story that is not not the end of the story and that is not the only story and like I look at my life now. I couldn't I wrote a book and I'm getting a masters and you know. Yeah sure I've got like a shit dad but like who doesn't you know money's not even real and plus like when the Earth Burns up nine years like we're all we're GONNA get student loans forgiven so make a boy. Yeah that got dark real quick. Oh Man I am nothing again that sunny disposition I have just a blessing. God well yeah I mean absolutely just recognize nuys where you've come from and where you are now and take take pride and and that and that's that's wonderful I think you I think you should.

"Hello words welcome to the dictionary. It's a little warm here in this audio booth studio thing so I'm I'm getting a little warm warm but I'm going to persevere and record three more episodes including this one but if you hear a drop it might be sweat dripping from my forehead forehead onto the microphone by the way today should be September twenty third two thousand nineteen and I believe this is the vernal equal. No that's spring autumnal equinoxes. this is the day that the amount of day amount of night in twenty four hour period is essentially exactly the same so yes go enjoy as much sunlight as you can unless you like the night then go enjoy that as much as you can and you are about to get a lot more night over the next three six months whatever a right I word for. This episode is Apostle Eight P. O. S. T. T. L. E. That's the name of movie that I've never seen before. This is a noun from before the twelfth century one one sent on a mission as has won a one of an authoritative New Testament group sent out to preach the Gospel and made up especially of Christ's twelve original disciples and Paul. Sorry Paul you are not at twelve original disciple. I don't know who they are. I don't know who Paul is could be Paul McCartney. That's the first one I think of of moving on one be the first prominent Christian missionary to a region or group to a person who initiates a great moral reform or who I advocates an important belief or system to be an ardent supporter synonym is adherent point three the highest ecclesiastical official in some church organizations sure I can say ecclesiastical but I can't say a the poster eerie. Maybe I said it. Four one of a Mormon Administrative Council of Twelve Men Apostle ship is a noun that is a boat. I don't WanNa go on Let's see this is from Latin op Postalis or oppose stolis which is from the Greek postal us which is from op Postel lean which means to send away and that is from stelling which means to send send so in Greek obviously because we're we're in the words that start with apo we've been seeing a lot of Greek words that start with APO and they show you both forms so what when when they add the APO though definition changes so in this case they add APO to the words stelling which means to send and that makes it apple stelling which means to send away similar slightly different another example from the previous episode History Thi- means to stand and then when you add apo to it it means to revolt so I may I need to either look back at the APPA words or look online and see if I can find a better description for the APO prefix in Greek and see what it means means you know. Are there any rules to how the word gets changed. I don't know but we are going to move onto the next word slash phrase it is Apostles Creed Capital A. P. O. S. T. L. E. ASS and then there's an apostrophe at the end of the Second Word Capital C. E R e e d this is a noun from sixteen O to a Christian statement of belief ascribed to the twelve apostles and used used especially in public worship next. We have a PASTA LATE A. P. O. S. T. O. L. A. T. E. It's a noun from the Fourteenth Eighteenth Century one the office or mission of an apostle to an association of persons dedicated to the propagation of a religion or a doctrine next we have OPPA STOLAC. This is an adjective from the thirteenth century one a of or relating to an apostle sel one B of relating to or conforming to the teachings of the New Testament Apostles to a of or relating to a succession of Spiritual Authority from the apostles held as by Roman Catholics Anglicans and eastern Orthodox to be perpetuated by I successive ordinations of bishops and to be necessary for valid sacraments and orders to be we have these synonym paypal P. L. Pabel Let's see a pasta. Listen is a noun next. We have apostolate a solid and delegate. It's Announ from Circa Nineteen O seven. It's two words by the way an ecclesiastical representative of the Holy See to the Catholic hierarchy of another country. Holy See is two words capital H. O. L. Y. Next Word Capital S. E. E. E- like you see with your eyes next. We have apostolic Father Two words. Both words are capitalized. This is a noun from eighteen twenty eight a church father of the first or second century. Ad So that dude is old next. We have a word that I am more familiar with. It is apostrophe. The first form this is a noun from fifteen thirty three the addressing of a usually early absent person or a usually personified thing rhetorically as in Carlisle's. Oh Liberty what things are done. The name is an example of apostrophe. So of course this is not the apostrophe that I was thinking of. That's probably formed number two so let's look at this a lot to unpack so in this example there is a quote. Oh Liberty what things are done in thy name. That's the quote that quote is from Carlisle and that quote is an example of apostrophe which to remind me and you is the addressing the usually absent person or a usually personified thing rhetorically oppa straffic is an adjective this this is from the Greek apostrophe which literally means act of turning away and that is from apostrophe which means to turn away that is from straffing which means to turn now. We have apostrophe form number two. It's a noun from seventeen twenty any seven a mark and then it shows the apostrophe used to indicate the omission of letters or figures the possessive case or the the plural of letters or figures. What do they mean by figures in this case numbers. They would've said numbers if they mean numbers what other things things use apostrophes that are not letters I should know this but I can't think of anything. OPPA STRAFFIC is an adjective. You've all right. Let's look at the analogy. this is similar. I guess to the previous at Amal Aji for the other word apostrophe apostrophe but slightly different basically this is from the Greek apostrophe votes which means turned away and the previous previous one was from the Greek apostrophe will a few different forms of that word which all sort of related to turning and turning away US how turning away is related to our apostrophe I don't know but here we go with apostrophes. His it's the British variation of apostrophes with Z which is next of course. It happens like that pretty much all the time. this is a verb herb from seventeen eighteen. The transitive definition is to address by or in apostrophe. That's in relation to so the first form the in transitive definition is to make use of apostrophe next. We have apothecary measure. I added that extra s because apothecary has an S. at the end ended has funny enough and Apostrophe to make it I think the plural laurel possessive this is a noun from circa nineteen hundred a system of liquid units of measure used chiefly by pharmacists. It's called also apothecary measure ends in Y apothecary does do they still use things called apothecary measure. I wonder but next we have a Pathak carries weight. It's a noun from seventeen sixty five a whole hundred and thirty five years before the previous obvious one. Why did it take so long for them. To figure that out this one is a system of weights used chiefly by pharmacists called also apothecary. Autho carry weight and it tells me to see the weight table next we have apothecary. It's a noun from the fourteenth century one one one who prepares and sells drugs or compounds for medicinal purposes to we have this synonym pharmacy. This is from the Middle Latin apothecary US which means shop keeper that is from apothecary which means storehouse and that is from the Greek apothecary that is from OPPO tiffany which means to put away and that is from tiffany which means to put and there's more at the word do so when apothecary was basically just a shopkeeper. I guess next we have OPPA A. P. O. T. H. E. C. I U. You 'em it's a noun from eighteen thirty a spore bearing structure in many lichens and fungi consisting of discord or cupped body bearing ASCII on the exposed flat or concave surface. I don't know if I pronounced ASCII correctly. The it is spelled A. S. C. I could just be Asi. I Dunno apathy. She'll is an adjective so this has to do with fungi something. I don't really know a lot about but I've been learning a little bit and it sounds like they are really really fascinating like incredibly so next. We have OPPA THEMM A P. O. T. H. E. G. M. This. This is a noun from Circa fifteen eighty seven a short pithy and instructive sane or formulation synonym is aphorism resume which we read five six seven episodes. Go something like that pity. I like that word. It would be great if the dictionary gave me a description description of an apple them Maybe I'll have to look one up. this is from the Greek OPPA WHOA UP. Oh Oh Thi- I butchered that kind of on purposely it is spelled A. P. O. P. H. T. H. The N. G. E. S. T. H. A. I. That is a funky word a puff fin gas tie with that means to speak out and that is from V N Goths which means to utter Greek. That's a crazy language. Let's see Oh. I missed the adjective form. It is Otto thematic now. We have the last word for this episode. It looks it's pronounced the same way as the previous word up with them but it is spelled well more correctly in my mind A. P. O. T. H. E. M. The previous one had a g before the M Let's see this is a noun from circa eighteen fifty six the perpendicular from the center of of a regular polygon to one of the sides. This is from the Greek Thelma which means something laid down or it also means theme either. One both makes sense. I guess something laid down how that's related to the perpendicular from the center of a regular probably gone to one of the sides. I'm not exactly sure but those are all the words and now I have to pick one well. I'm not GonNa pick any the apostle words just because I'm not let's go ahead and pick the first form of APOSTROPHE I don't know it seemed kind of interesting. I didn't didn't totally understand it but yeah. That looks like a fun one. That's the end of the episode. Thank you for listening until next time. I'm reading you the dictionary goodbye..
