Not that they're going to confiscate every gun. There's no way. They have no chance. But how would they do that, folks? And now let's play a little interactive game. But, Dan, I've listened to your show before. It's illegal for the federal government to create Yes, correct. It's also illegal for the federal government to use tax dollars to pay off people's student loans. But they do that. There's always a workaround for tyrants. And the workaround for the tyrants is the background check system. The federal government wants to desperately compile a list of everybody that's gone through a background check for a firearm. So they have a list of every firearm and who bought it. The problem, ladies and gentlemen, is the mandatory background check is only for sales from FFLs. It's not for private. So Mike if or I were to give away a firearm to, say, our daughters or sons, and they're not prohibited possessors, the government son of the government's business, your gun, you can give it to whoever you want, as long as it's the law.

The Government Wants to Control All Resources... Even Turkeys
"Mike, you up for me cuttin' on? I want you to listen to this. Now, this may seem like a silly argument over Thanksgiving turkeys on Christmas and a giveaway, excuse me, on Thanksgiving they do every year. This is where we're going with this. This is exactly what the government and NGOs on the left want. They want to control the resources and make sure that you all have the Hunger Games to get them. Listen to this lady in this news report talk about how illegal migrants with our open border society are now taking away the Thanksgiving turkeys they used to get for free every year. Take a listen this. to In one neighborhood in Queens between NYCHA tenants and newly arrived migrants, tensions are growing with not enough food to go around. Why do we have to take the butt of everything? This community here is already suffering. The residents living in NYCHA's Queensbridge houses look forward to the mobile food pantries that show up weekly. But over the past year, they have witnessed 8000 migrants move into their neighborhood and they've also noticed the migrants are also starting to take their stuff. They was first online for the turkeys this morning. They tell you to be there at 11 o 'clock. You get there like 10 30, 10 45, but they're already out there. The line is from over there to over here. Free food giveaways, especially during the holidays, have become a source of tension between longtime New Yorkers struggling to get by and newly arrived migrants who are using the system to survive. Step one, the tyranny emergency powers. Step two, the Hunger Games. Resources come from the government.

Fresh update on "students" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"Well, hello, everybody. Dennis Prager here. I'm in St. Louis, Missouri. I arrived thinking I was going to a place climatically similar to the place I live, Southern California. And shall I say, in an effort at understating, I made a mistake. I left balmy Southern California and arrived and it was 33 degrees. I was the only person outdoors with neither a sweater nor a jacket. It shows that when you live, wherever you live, the world in which you live becomes normative. Good, bad, middle.

Broward High School students stage walkout in support of transgender student. Now, you have to understand it's not a matter of support of transgender student. It's support of a transgender student competing against women. A man who says he is a woman competing against other women. So you realize that if it was hundreds, I have to take the article at face value, I guess. And if it was that amount of kids in this high school in Florida, they were marching against the women's team. They were not just marching for one narcissist. I say I am a woman, therefore I can compete in sports against women. That's pure narcissism. You can't get more directly narcissistic than that. I say X, the world will adapt to my saying I am X. It transcends arrogance, it enters hubris and it confirms narcissism. So they are marching against their own girl's team. My God, I get to Florida often. I would love to speak at Monarch High School. Hundreds of students. You know, I don't buy this notion, well, they're kids and you know, what do you expect? Kids don't think clearly. First of all, kids can't think clearly if they're taught to think clearly, that's number one. Number two, if the kids can't think clearly, why do you accept it when they say that they are the other sex? Why is that all of a sudden clear? So if that's clear, then these kids are clear. And you should be ashamed of every one of those kids who marched in that march. Those parents have wittingly, in many cases deliberately, and in many cases not, produced a fool, a moral idiot for a child. See, this is not a matter of accepting people at face value. This is a matter of destroying female sports. That's the issue. The issue is not, do we allow this person, if this person now looks like and acts like and takes a female name, it's none of our business, fine, do what you want. It is now, it is a matter of, shall we protect girls in female sports? Why have, if I could ask them one question, if this is okay with you, then why do we have girls teams? What would they respond? What would these pathetic kids, see this notion of, oh, they're just kids, don't attack kids, then why listen to them? We're told all the time, listen to kids, listen to kids. So you can only listen, but you cannot criticize or even attack? If they were 25 years old, could I attack them as moral idiots? At what age do you cease to be allowed to be? At what young age? In my religion, after 13, you're an adult. These kids are well over 13. Hundreds, they say, I really wonder if that's true, might be. Staves to walk out during school hours. So see, if we lived in a country that had rules, they would all be disciplined for walking out of class. But there's no such thing anymore. My father used to say when I had him on my show on his birthday every year, biggest difference between the America he grew up in and the America of the time we were speaking was that the kids run the house, not the parents. The kids run the schools, in fact, the kids run the government. Leftism and childishness are very much related. I feel you will honor my feelings. One day after their principal and four other staff members were reassigned to non-school sites amid an investigation that a transgender student had been playing on the girls' volleyball team, state law, God bless Governor DeSantis, called the Fairness in Women's Sports Act prohibits transgender female students from playing on women's and girls' sports team. It does not affect transgender men playing on male teams. In other words, if you're a girl, you can play on a man's team. The event, which lasted about a half hour, happened on school property and was peaceful. The group congregated at the football field starting around noon before making their way to the fence at the parking lot on the north end of the school. Once there, they shouted chants, including, let her play, trans rights are human rights, and free Cecil now. Cecil refers to monarch principal James Cecil. I'd like to speak to James Cecil. If Aladdin brought me a magic lantern and said, I give you a wish, it would be to speak to James Cecil. Alexandra Almeida, senior monarch, says she heard about the walkout through social media Monday. I saw a lot of my friends posting about what was happening, what was going on, she said, and I decided that I wanted to go with them out there and be supportive. Of what, exactly? Almeida said she thought the five staff members to be reassigned was, quote, ridiculous that it was happening in the first place, unquote, and hoped the walkout would, quote, bring more awareness to the situation so that people see what's happening in our Florida schools. So, dear, dear, Almeida, Alexandra Almeida, people are seeing what is happening in Florida schools, and it is one of the reasons Florida has a remarkably great net immigration as opposed to California, which has a net immigration. We do look at what is happening in Florida schools, and we decide it is better to send a child to a Florida school than a California school or an Oregon or Washington or New York, et cetera, et cetera. My dear Alexandra, you have allowed yourself to be guided by feelings rather than reason, by feelings rather than morality, but that's the way people have been raised? All of my life in the United States, I have been talking about this for 40 years. We live in a feelings-based society. How do you feel about it? Not there is a right and a wrong. How do you feel about it? Well, then it lists the other four employees. Finally, at a brief press conference Tuesday morning, Broward School Superintendent Peter Licata said he had heard some adults at the school wanted to start the walkout. He said the school district had reached out to staff there and to the Student Government Association about it. Quote, we understand, he said, this is, who is this, Broward School Superintendent. Now please tell me what this statement means. We understand and we will always protect students. I don't know where it started from. I do know that we want to make sure students are safe. What does that mean? I'm not at all sarcastic. So what is his position on a boy playing on the girls' team? Is the superintendent of Broward Schools, what does he have a position? Students should always be safe. If you really want students always safe, you don't want a male body on a girls' volleyball court. Girls have been really hurt by guys who say they're girls, smashing the ball in their face. We'll be back in a moment. There's something to be said for being at the right place at the right time.

What Is the Richmond Promise? Executive Director Chris Whitmore Explains
"What is the Richmond Promise and what are your goals with the organization in the community? Absolutely. So Richmond Promise is a post -secondary access and success initiative that launched here in Richmond in 2016. And Richmond Promise is actually an initiative of the Richmond City Council. So our, our city leaders created Richmond Promise and created our organization using $35 million in seed funding that has been on a pay schedule here at Richmond Promise over the course of nine years. And so our seed funding that the city council secured for us actually sunsets next year. But as a post -secondary access and success initiative, our goals are to help young people in Richmond access higher education pathways and educate young people about what higher education pathways exist for them to access. We support students with a scholarship that is applicable for up to six years of their undergraduate experience. And our scholars, and that's a scholarship of $1 ,500 per year, again, for up to six years of a student's undergraduate education. And our scholars can use that scholarship at any not -for -profit and accredited two -year college, four -year college or university or career technical education program throughout the United States. Now I'll talk about that a little bit more. So that's higher education access and scholarship support. When our students are in college or are in a career technical education program, we also support them with scholar success programming. And this is wraparound support to ensure that students not only get accepted into a degree program or into a career technical education program, but they're also supported to ensure that they earn their degrees, earn their certifications. And then after they've reached that milestone, and this is a growing portion of our organization, we are building out our career access and success programming to ensure, again, that young people not only go to college, but they can come back home to Richmond. They can come back home to the Bay Area or wherever in the world they choose to be and have support in pursuit of their career ambitions and career goals. So since 2016, our organization has supported more than 3 ,300 Richmond youth, and on average, we serve a little more than 1 ,300 youth per year who are scholars in our program. So that's a quick snapshot of what we

You didn't take managerial accounting They saw me like economics macro economics micro economics all these courses, you know, you know, and they said You know, you have to take them, okay, so I don't want to say I lost another year year and a half No, you felt like it I felt like it at first but then I appreciate it because that taught me a lot because you're learning the fundamental of Economics financials actually the courses that I took financial and managerial accounting courses They teach you how to read your balance sheet of the company, which is great A lot of people are clueless to that exactly and I actually I'm doing my old balance sheets PNLs That's awesome. I'm looking at every month and I'm kind of you know Looking through it, even though my CPA looks at it almost every month But when he talks about something I already know or you already know So that's why I was like that time out to me like oh my god I'm gonna lose another one year and a half two years, but it ended up working out working out for me so I started MBA program right after I finished it and Study administration business administration, so you studied what you wanted to study when you were with your dad Yes telling them this is what I want to do exactly, okay One little detail I left off before before I got into UCF the first year when I was in seminar community college My roommate told me hey, let's apply for a green card lottery. Oh, I said, what is that? I'm like lottery also is we're gonna win money is like no it's it's called green card lottery I still didn't understand the concept and he told me look you're gonna apply a lot of people are applying and they Pick you and if you they pick you you can stay in this country and you get the residency Okay, I'm like you're kidding for me to get my student visa I have to go through so much so much and they're just gonna give me my green card and that's it over like, you know Yeah, that easy. It's like yes, that's easy. I'm like Let's apply. Let's apply and I'm thinking welcome to the United States. Welcome to American dream.
Recovering Food Addict Colleen Y. Shares the Ups and Downs of Her Journey
"On the podcast, our guest is a recovered food addict, Colleen Y. Welcome Colleen. Colleen Y. Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. Susan Branscombe Yeah, it's great. I heard about your story. I've read about your story and I'm looking forward to sharing it with our listeners. We're going to talk about your story and how you found recovery from food addiction. I understand you became abstinent at 55 years old in 2018 when you joined a 12 -step food recovery program. Talk about that and what brought you into recovery. Colleen Y. Yes, it was late getting into. I had never heard of any 12 -step recovery programs. I had never heard about food addiction. I was just a person who thought I had a moral issue that I needed to diet, that I didn't have willpower, that that was the only way that I could overcome the excess weight. I was getting up there. I was 250. I was up to 300 pounds when I finally went into the rooms. So up until that point, I just thought that I just had no willpower. But it got to the point where all I could do was think about the food. I could not function unless I was thinking about food. So that's what brought me into the rooms. Talk about you got into recovery when you realized that you needed help in this way. And then you relapsed after two months. What happened there? Well, actually, it was after five years. I was in the program for five years. So for the first two years following the program, I was good. I followed it. I lost weight. I was working the steps in the program. But then I thought I didn't need it anymore, that I knew what I was doing and slowly started deviating from the program to the point where I left it and just started doing diets again and the weight started creeping back on. But I was still not eating the sugar flower wheat. So that's what I considered as still being abstinent. But the weight came on. I was still eating high fat. And then finally, after five years, I just couldn't white knuckle the diets anymore. And I relapsed. And in that two months that I relapsed, I gained over 25 pounds and really came to believe that I had a serious problem with food addiction. I just could not function at all over that two months. And I just did not want to live anymore. I just did not want to wake up in the morning. It was a brutal experience for two months. For critical level food addicts, some of us can get suicidal, where we just can't see a way out and that we're always going to suffer from this and food controls our lives. Yeah, I prayed every night that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. And that was the thing. And then I'd be so devastated that I had another day in this disease and that somehow I had to function. So talk about this history then. You got into recovery, five years, doing well, lost weight. Then you relapsed. Tell me about the weight that went off and came back on. You said you gained 25 pounds. You got up to 300, but were you close to maintenance weight during that five years? I had never been a normal weight my entire life, never. So I got close. I had lost, by this point I started at 300, so I was probably down to 170, which was just absolutely new territory for me. Then I gained some weight back, but then I knew I could not get abstinent on my own. It didn't matter what I did, I could not keep it. So I tried to go to Renasant and Renasant was running an outpatient program and I signed up for that. And then just before they were going to run it, they contacted me and said that they weren't prepared to run it anymore. And I was devastated. I ended up getting in touch with Dr. Vera Tarmon, who is a director at Renasant, and she told me about, in fact, was going to run their intensive for their students. And Esther usually does it in Iceland, but this time she was actually doing it in Ontario where I'm from. So it's like three hours away from me, I had this opportunity. So I jumped at it and I went and did that intensive where Esther Helga had Amanda from Shift come in and run the intensive. And it was mind -altering. It changed everything about the way that I looked at food addiction, totally, totally opened my eyes.
Addressing Concerns of AI "Cheating" With Adebayo Alomaja
"The teachers are also concerned that the AI could lead to cheating in terms of student cheating, not doing the work, being lazy and all that. What is your perspective on this concern? Yeah. So I think that the word cheating can only be used in the context of the traditional. For example, if I think about how professionals are using AI today, right? For example, how I am using AI today, I wanted to write a proposal and then I just entered the prompt. I told this AI to the kind of proposal I want. And so I just entered it. And within a second, it gave me a set of slides, right? It gave me a set of slides. That would have taken me a lot of hours to put that presentation together. But just because I just entered the right prompt, in less than a minute, I was able to get the slides that I will use for a presentation. And the content was beautiful and so great. I'm leading there to just add a few things, all right? So that eased my life, right? You wouldn't say I'm cheating for doing that. I wasn't cheating. I wasn't cheating. This is about my productivity being increased. This is about my mental health and wellbeing. This is about allowing me to focus on high level. So I think that right now, what AI has done to us is that AI has redefined high level and low level tasks. There were some things that before its emergence, right? Actually generative AI, some things we saw as high level. Right now, they are now low level. Now there's a new caliber of tasks that we call high level now. So AI has brought about that shift. So I think that cheating will not be in the equation if we are looking at higher order thinking. Cheating will not be in the equation. Because if the learning experience is skill based, like I always say that there can be exams in my practice, but there can be skills in my practice, right? Because skills have to be shown. You have to show it. Critical thinking cannot be copied. You have to show it. You have to show it. Collaboration cannot be copied. You have to show it. Innovation cannot be copied. You have to show it. Which is why I was saying that if the experience is still traditional, we still keep talking about cheating. But the moment we move away from the traditional, we won't see cheating again because we will not be dealing with skills. We'll be dealing with skills. We'll be dealing with competencies. That's what we'll be dealing with. And the question will not be about how to measure those
AI's Impact on Teaching With Mr. Adebayo Alomaja
"Teachers are concerned, at least in the iceberg, about the jobs away, but at the same time, according to them, some teachers, that it will make students lazy and all that. But you said because of AI, it will lessen the job or what the teachers do, but it will literally help teachers. The role of teachers, the best practices is to be facilitators, right? So what you're saying is it will enable the teachers to be more of a great designer of lessons and being able to facilitate instructions and learning. Yeah. So can you elaborate more on that because this is of interest. I'm a teacher. Yeah, exactly. What we see happening today is that, as I said, teachers are going to step into their creative age. They are going to become more creative than ever because they are going to be the delivered from old of the demands from the traditional system, right? Teachers are busy with lesson plans. They have to do so many things and so many things and a whole lot of that. But we're going to see that, for example, right now, we have the iTunes that you just keep Curipod. You just give Curipod a prompt and say you want this topic in this class and all you see immediately, within a minute, is just a full blown lesson, right? And not just in terms of value, right? So you see what's in it, how rich and how valuable that can be, right? So teachers are going to become, the teaching profession is going to become more interesting. It's going to become most interesting, right? And teaching is, here I would get teaching to that level and all in all so that teachers can have more time to think beyond the classroom, the school environment, right? Teachers can have more time to collaborate. But one thing I'm saying lately, one thing I've just, part of my latest discoveries is the fact that school needs to move to what I call the partnership age. So right now, teachers need to start collaborating with professionals from other industries. The school of the future is going to become an environment that brings professionals back into the classroom. We say school produces professionals, but right now, school is going to bring them back into the classroom. And to be honest with you, AI, because AI has access to a lot of data, right? So actually it is, if the interest is to make teams, is to encourage collaboration and to also, not only within between teachers, but between teachers and the industry, right? I think AI can facilitate that. The use of AI can facilitate that. If the whole idea is using data, right? The use of AI to inform a decision -making or instruction, I can do a marvelous job in regards to the use of technology, which goes to moving schools to using technology to become technology savvy, right? So it creates, you said that it creates an emergence of global schools, can you elaborate? So talking about global schools, so what we're seeing is that right now it's going to become easy. For example, I work with a school in Georgia, Atlanta, Georgia, as an instructor. And yeah, so I teach math there, right? Of course, that's the school with learners distributed as a global school. So when we talk about global schools, what we're seeing, what we're seeing right now, which is a possibility, is very possible. Like I was speaking to a school owner, I said, all your teachers, you are in Nigeria. I said, all your teachers don't have to be Nigerians. I said that, I said, when we talk about global citizenship, when we see every child in Nigeria, I said global citizenship in every one of us, we are global citizenship in the whole world right now is a global village, right? Global citizenship is not a title. It has to be an experience. It has to be, so I like calling myself a global village evangelist, just talking about a global village, there was this plug into what is a global village, and that's a reality. That's a reality because even right now it's very possible. So schools in Nigeria can get volunteer teachers free of charge that are going to work with your kids, either for personalized learning interventions, or just even as a member of their team, which is to support teachers, there are many teachers, a thousand or one teachers who are happy and who are willing to work in that kind of setting, right? Because they also want to reach their portfolio and say, oh, I've been able to work with kids from, right? So global globalization is something that people are loving these days. That's what's happening on LinkedIn. What drove all of us to, what makes us excited about LinkedIn is globalization. We're loving it. We're enjoying it. We're able to reach people, the diversification, equity, the DER, one of the few, what is a global village? We are connected. We don't want to be separated. We want to sell ourselves as one, right? So we see these factors as promoters, as drivers of concepts like the global school, right? So we are going to see more and more things like that.
A highlight from David Brooks on How To Know A Person
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College. All things Hillsdale at hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there, and of course, to listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues. All of them at hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. Inside the Beltway this morning, I'm so glad you joined me. I want to talk with you about this book. David Brooks's brand new How to Know a Person, The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen. David joins me now. Hello, David. How are you? It's good to be with you again. It's good to talk to you. David, I'm used to getting books, and I got yours for free. They get sent to me. I want to tell you I'm going to buy six copies of How to Know a Person, three for my children and their spouses, and three for friends who are no longer friends that I want them to read. I wonder if you've had other people tell you that they're going to be buying your book to give to other people. Yeah, thank you for being generous on Twitter about the book. I appreciate it. Yeah, no, I've had people buy it for all their employees. I've had people buy it for the families. I haven't heard about buying it for ex -friends, but it's a good strategy. It is. We just live in these brutalizing times. It is. And my book is supposed to be a missile directed right at that. It's about the precise skills of how do you get to know someone, how do you make them feel respected, seen, heard. How do you make them feel respected, seen, and heard? I know why my friends are not my friends anymore. It's because of Donald Trump. They thought me insufficiently outraged about Donald Trump, and I can't bridge that gap, right? I can't be other than what I am, which is I voted for him twice, and if he's the nominee, I'll vote for him again. But they don't understand it, and I don't know that they're trying to understand. I don't understand them either, but I think How to Know a Person has assisted me. So, congratulations. Let me also tell you, I told our mutual friend Bob Barnett that I was telling people about your book in Miami as I prepared for the debate, because my wife and I talked about one statistic in particular, one paragraph actually, on page 98. Thirty -six percent of Americans reported they felt lonely frequently or almost all of the time, including 61 percent of young adults, 51 percent of young mothers. The percentage of Americans who said they have no close friends quadrupled between 1990 and 2020. 54 percent of Americans reported that no one knows them well. That is an extraordinary raft of terrible news, David. Yeah, and I found it's hard to build a healthy democracy on top of a rotting society, and so when this people are filled with loneliness and sadness, it turns into meanness, because if you feel yourself unseen, invisible, there's nothing crueler than feeling that people think you don't exist, and you get angry, and you lash out, and we have these school shootings. We have bitter politics. We've got the brutality of what's happening on college campuses right now, where Jewish students are being blockaded out of classrooms or have the recipients of genocidal how to build a friendship, how to make people feel that you're included, and these are basic social skills like the kind you could be taught at like learning carpentry or tennis or something like that. It's how do you listen well, how do you disagree well, how do you sit with someone who's got depression, how do you sit with someone who's contemplating suicide, how do you sit with someone who disagrees with you fundamentally on issues, and I just try to walk through the basic skills, and in my view, there in any group of people, there are two sorts. There's diminishers, the people who stereotype ignore, they don't ask you questions, they just don't care about you, and then there's another sort of person who are illuminators, and they are curious about you, they respect you, they want to know your life story, and they make you feel lit up and heard, and my goal in writing the book was partly social, because we need these skills to be a decent society, and partly personal. I just want to be better at being an illuminator. I think it comes through in the book. I listened to your interview with Katie Couric and her colleague, who I don't know, and they were trying to get at a question a couple of times, I'm gonna try and land that plane. Why did David Brooks write this book? Well, I'll give you the personal reason. You know, some people, if anybody watched Fiddler on the Roof, you know how warm and huggy Jewish families can be. I grew up in the other kind of Jewish family, and our culture was think Yiddish, act British, so we had love in the home. We just didn't express it. We were not a huggy family. We were all cerebral up here, and then when I was 18, the admissions officers at Columbia, Wesleyan, and Brown decided to actually go to the University of Chicago, which was also a super cerebral place. My favorite thing about Chicago, it's a Baptist school where atheist professors teach Jewish students St. Thomas Aquinas, and so I went into the world of journalism where we just Frederick Buechner once put it, if you cut yourself off from true connection with others, you may save yourself a little pain because you won't be betrayed, but you're cutting yourself off from the holy sources of life itself, and so I just wanted to be better at being intimate with other people. I've heard you now three times, read in your book, heard you tell it to Katie, and heard you tell it to me, the anecdote about the University of Chicago, the anecdote about Yiddish and British, but what is new is you brought up Buechner, and I've never read Buechner. I now know his backstory, which is so tragic. You include it in the book. I did not know he had a tragic backstory that illumines his character for me, and maybe I will go and read it, but you're in interview mode. How many different book interviews have you done? Uh, probably 20 or more. I don't know a lot. You're definitely, I know what that's like, where you want to get through an interview, and you want to make sure that people, you land the point, and I want to get a little bit deeper than that. I want to find out if you're with your self -examination. There's been a David Brooks self -examination underway for a long time, but you have not yet written your book about God. Are you going to go there? Yeah, well, at the end of The Second Mountain, I wrote a book about my spiritual journey, and how I grew up, my phrase was religiously bisexual, so I grew up in a Jewish home, but I went to a church school, and I went to a church camp, so I had the story of Jesus in my God. And then when I was 50 or so, reality seemed porous to me. It seemed like we're not just a bunch of physical molecules. You know, I once, I was in subway in New York City in God's ugliest spot on the face of the earth, and I look around the subway car, and I see all these people, and I decide all these people have souls. There's some piece of them that has no size, weight, color, or shape, but gives them infinite value and dignity, and their souls could be soaring, their souls could be hurting, but all of us have them. And once you have the concept of the soul in your head, it doesn't take long before the concept of God is in your head. And so I went off, especially about 10 years ago, and it's still going on a spiritual journey of just trying to figure out what do I believe? And I learned when you're on a journey like that, Christians give you books, and so I got like 700 books sent to me, only 350 of which were different copies of Christianity by C .S. Lewis. And so that was my journey. And it didn't, it was very slow and gradual. There were some dramatic moments, but not a lot. But I realized, oh, I'm not an atheist anymore, and my heart has opened up to something. And I think this book is the extension of that. When your heart opens up to God, and if every person you meet, you think this person was made in the image of God, I'm looking at somebody so important, Jesus was willing to die for that person, then I've got to show them the respect that God would show them. I've got to try to see them with the eyes that Jesus would see them with. And that's a super high standard that I'm not going to meet, but it's a goal. And Jesus says, even in brutal, tough times, He sees people, He sees the poor. And the main thing He does is Jesus is always asking questions. Somebody asks Him a question, He asks them a question back. And that act of questioning, what you do for a living, that's a show of respect. And that's the doorway to seeing someone. And so to me, I think questions are a moral act that we're phenomenal at when we're kids. And then we get a little worse at it. And I come sometimes leave a party and think that whole time nobody asked me a question. And I've come to think like only 30 % of the people in the world are question askers. And so part of the thing I do in the book is just try to say, here are some generous things to do to ask people questions. It is a, that is the key takeaway, how to ask questions. And this is a skill set. I sent a note this morning to my friend, Jan Janur, who has been running a Christian ministry for 30 years called The Wild Adventure. He wrote a book called Turning Small Talk into Big Talk. And I was reminded of it. Yours is a longer, more complicated examination of the art of asking questions and why you want to do so. It's also, it reminded me a lot of C .S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory. You have never met an ordinary human being. Everyone is an eternal horror, an everlasting splendor, and you believe that and you get to it. And I want to talk about how one gets there, but I want to begin, interestingly enough, with a comment Katie Couric made you. And I listened to that yesterday. I'd finished your book last week and I made my notes last night. And then I listened to Katie Couric interview. She spontaneously brought up her interview with Sarah Palin. Why do you think she did that, David? I like Katie a lot. And she's been a guest on my show. I loved her memoir, at least the first two thirds of it, which was about her younger life, which I thought was fascinating. Why do you think she brought up the Sarah Palin interview? I was also struck by that because I don't think she talks about it enough. I know Katie from various things and I don't think she talks about it all that much. I think it was a time when she was asking questions and somebody just wasn't answering. It was a time when she was having a miscommunication. I imagine that's why she wrote up. Do you have another theory? I do. I think it's because she's been misunderstood because of that question and that she wants people who only know Katie Couric because of that question to know that that's not Katie Couric. And that, to me, it was it made perfect sense she used to be known. And that's the central theme of this. People want to be seen. They want to be known. And if you are known for the wrong thing, in this case, the Katie Couric Sarah Palin interview, you want to you want to get that off your cargo ship, right? You want that unloaded. And I thought, wow, you really the book worked on her. Let me tell you also, on page 134, you talk about face experiments with infants. I want them outlawed. David, what did you think when you read it? I think those are cruel and awful. Tell people about them. Yeah, so babies come out of the womb wanting to be seen. Baby's eyes, they see everything 18 inches away in sharpness. Everything else is kind of blurry because they want to see mom's face. And these experiments that you referred to are called still face experiments. The babies send a bid for attention. And the moms are instructed, don't respond, just be still face. And in the beginning, the babies are uncomfortable. And then after a few seconds, they start writhing around. And five within seconds, they're in total agony, because nobody is seeing them. And I really don't think that's that much different as adults. I think when we're unseen, it is just total agony. We're rendered invisible. And that's what I encounter in my daily life as a reporter. I used to go to the Midwest. I live on the East Coast, but I spent a lot of time in the Midwest. And maybe 10, 15 years ago, once a day, somebody would say, you guys think we're flyover country. In the last five years, I hear that like 10 times a day. And so a lot of just people feel they're invisible. And frankly, that's a little on my profession, the media. When I started as a police reporter in Chicago, we had working class folks in the newsroom. Our reporters, they hadn't gone to college. They were just regular people from Chicago, and they covered crime alongside me. Now, if you go to newsrooms, especially in New York, DC, LA, San Francisco, it's not only everybody went to college, everyone went to the same like 15 elite colleges, and a lot of the same prep schools. So if you're not in this little group, and you look at the national media, and you don't see yourself, it's as if they're telling you your voice doesn't matter. You don't exist. And that's a form of dehumanization that we've allowed to fester in this country. And of course, people are going to lash out. Yeah, I just spent two weeks with really wonderful professionals at NBC preparing for this debate. And at one point, I asked one of my colleagues in this exercise, I don't work for NBC, how many people do you think in this room voted for Trump? And taken aback, they did not answer because the answer is obvious. Nobody. And if if your newsroom is full of 100 % people not only didn't vote for Trump, but actually loathe them, you can't cover the country. It's impossible because you're not seeing the other 50%. And what your book is, I hope the newsroom is distributed as well. We are all about seeing people who have long been marginalized, and that is important. But if you don't see people who are supporting Donald Trump, for whatever reason, you can't cover the news. Let me ask you about this Philip Lewis fellow. I love him, because he finally gave me the courage to teach the do the Dormant Commerce Clause in the 11th Amendment with the confidence that even though my students are terribly bored, they have to know this. Where did you meet Philip Lewis? Because he's talking to teachers. Teachers need to read this book too, if only to be comforted in the fact that every teacher has this experience.
'March for Israel' Planned on National Mall
"That the people in the streets that the people burning american flags that people the ripping down posters of hostages including american hostages that the people who want death to israel want death to america too and i just spent an entire first out of this program laying out what's been going on in these colleges and universities since the these elitists hate your guts and they throw on marxism and they throw in with islamicism that's first and foremost i've always said as you know you listen to this program for 21 years those of you who've listened for a long time the people who hate america hate israel and the people who hate israel hate america it's really that simple and it's very true so again you can attend this march tomorrow in washington dc i don't think you have to worry about violence next to you since the crowd will be so massive i hope and unlike the violence that you've been seeing in the streets unlike the who've bush students had to run for cover as if there were these were the streets of none to berlin of that's gonna take place tomorrow none of it and i don't care what party you're in i don't care what your race is your faith if you're a red -blooded american and you're sick and tired of this you need to come out in large numbers and demonstrate to everybody that you that we are the real americans the silent supermajority which is going to appear tomorrow at the national mall which is where the great each was given by martin luther king i have a dream which where is where so many important events have occurred well this will be one of them
American Universities' Disturbing Connections to Nazi Germany
"Universities and colleges doing the same thing all over again. For instance chapter The Third Reich has a long history of atomizing Nazism. Harvard University and the Hitler Regime 1933 to 7 chapter 3 complicity and conflict Columbia University's response to fascism 1937 is very sympathetic to it. Chapter for the Seven sisters colleges in the Third Reich promoting fellowship through student exchange. Chapter 5 a respectful hearing for Nazi Germany's apologists the University of Virginia Institute of Public Affairs roundtables from 1933 to 1941. Chapter Nazi 6 nests German departments and American universities 1933 to 1941 just as we have islamo nazi hamasa and other rats nests throughout a university and college system. and in this book Hitler's American friends American universities did little to curtail the influence of pro -German speakers on campus during the obviously Third Reich. Throughout the decade German exchange students whom were Nazi party members and were likely operating as propaganda agents and other speakers were given mostly unchallenged platforms on university campuses. You see that now with the mass network in the islamo nazis. American universities therefore offer the German government a remarkable level of establishment legitimacy in the United States. Even after the violently anti -semitic nature of the regime had become clear. Just as Hitler's corporate friends had showed little reluctance doing business with the Third Reich his friends in academia maintained their own relationship with Hitler's regime. Both the Nazis and the US government were aware of the propaganda potential provided by American universities. Testifying before the DICE committee John C. Metcalfe argued that the German government had a particular interest in American students. He said the purpose of the exchange students on universities has long been to foster goodwill and peace among the nations resulting greater understanding. But this worthwhile aim has been neglected in the exchange of German students for American. Now American students are being indoctrinated with the aims of fascism in Germany both abroad and at home to the detriment of democratic institutions in America. Some of this rhetoric served as the intellectual precursor in the 1950s, they write, but John McCarthy, but they also say some of it, was legitimate. The Nazis did indeed benefit from a dedicated propaganda network within the American academic establishment. Around the country students and faculty alike increasingly became embroiled in unfolding international tensions as the 1930s progressed.

A highlight from Leftism is a Euphemism for Narcissism
"Hi everybody, Dennis and Julie, Dennis Prager and Julie Hartman. What number is this, by the way? I was wondering. I think it's 88. The speed of time. We were just commenting on that right before. 88 is correct. The irony is the wrong word. The interesting aspect of today is that we could speak for four hours. We would need perhaps a bathroom break, and then we would do another four hours. Because that is how much is on my mind, and you have a lot of stuff on your mind. As everyone knows, this Dennis and Julie podcast is not news -driven. We may make reference to something happening, but it's a free -for -all thought life, us. Extravaganza. Extravaganza, that's a good term. But I have to say that the events in Israel have been consuming, and I don't let myself get consumed. I'm very even -tempered, as you well know. I've worked on it all of my life, and I remain even -tempered now. I am watching evil of such magnitude, and vast numbers of people who support that evil. That is more depressing. Right. See, there were no pro -Nazi demonstrations. In the United States. Around the world. During World War II. Around the world. Yeah, exactly. Or even in the 30s. There were Nazis, but there's a tiny element, and they were regarded by mainstream people as morally defective human beings. But here, the announcement that a nation should be destroyed, and you have this mass support for that idea? There was a, it's interesting, there was not a tavern, I'm thinking in British terms, using tavern. Which, by the way, we should acknowledge that we were both in London. Yes, and we will get to that, hopefully, yes. But there was a, was it a diner, or some sort of restaurant in the New York area, I believe it was, and the owner put out pictures of Israeli kids who had been kidnapped. And his entire staff quit. Did you see this story? I did not, no. His entire staff quit, and a certain number of his patrons would not return. And word got out, and now he's doing better business than ever, because so many people are now frequenting his restaurant. But what does that mean? I mean, what was his staff composed of? That putting pictures of kidnapped Israeli kids is morally objectionable, that you quit your job? Well, we saw that at NYU, I believe it was NYU, could have been Columbia, but there was a university where students on their windows put up faces of the hostages, and they were torn down. And there was a video that I saw the other day where a member of the U .S. Women's National Soccer Team was driving in Los Angeles past a pro -Israel protest. She rolled down her window and raised her hand in the hall of Hitler. She was on the team. She's not. Oh, she's not now. Oh, okay. I thought she was now. It's really terrifying to see these people coming out of the woodwork, and they are so unashamed of their anti -Semitism. It means there's not that much stigma. Right. Well, Vivek Ramaswamy, the other night in the third presidential debate, which by the way, shout out to our company, Salem Media Group, for co -hosting, co -moderating that debate. He, and just to give another aside about Vivek, his opening line where he came – did you see this? Where he came after Ronna McDaniel, NBC for peddling the Russia collusion hoax. I was watching that, like cheering him on. That was the best line ever in debate history. Putting that aside, he had a really, I thought, great line too about anti -Semitism where he said that it reflects a greater rot in the society. That's exactly right. You say it with the canary in the mine. Right. That – There are noxious fumes. Yes. And so it shows the moral degradation of the United States of America in general. And how amazing, by the way, because we're supposedly so woke and we're so race -conscious and we're so, you know, people who are oppressed -conscious. And yet the fact that we're seeing this across the board in businesses, universities, individual people who are unashamed to come out with their anti -Semitism, I hope people are finally seeing the light, that this is a morally confused and morally corrupt culture that we're in. So I wrote an article, I looked it up, I didn't remember, 2015, so that would be eight years ago. Oh, was it – is this the Pakistan one? No, that's another one and that's totally worthy of noting. I wrote a piece, let me see if I can see it right now, and it was titled – God, it's really – I want people to read it because I would actually like to read excerpts for a moment on this issue. Let's see if I can here. Well, I didn't think I would be reading from it, so I didn't prepare it and I don't want to waste people's time, but it was an article about – remember when there was a huge influx of Muslims from the Middle East to Europe and the United States? So it was 2015 and I wrote, my heart breaks for a lot of these people, Syrians were being slaughtered en masse and Iraqis and ISIS and Syria, and I wrote, look, they're going to bring into Europe and – it was really about Europe – they're going to bring into Europe not everyone, obviously, but a lot of them will bring anti -Western values with them. People don't come naked, they wear their values, which is inevitable, if I moved somewhere I would bring my values with me.
A highlight from I Will Seek the Salvation of the Unconverted
"Good morning. I counted a privilege to be here today in front of you and pray this would be an encouragement and very practical for us all. If you wanna turn, open in your Bibles to Ephesians 6, familiar passage, Ephesians 6. For most of us, our greatest focus in all the world is ourselves. If we're honest, particularly in the Western world, we spend most of our time and most of our money on earth striving to be healthy and wealthy and increasing our collection of things that help us to become more comfortable here on earth. Our sin nature drives us not to serve others but to serve ourselves first. If I was to ask you this, what does your calendar show and what does your bank statement show is most important to you? God has put us on this earth for a specific purpose. It's to live for Him and to point others to Him. As Pastor Nate said, we're gonna be preaching through our church covenant if you've got one of these. We're on number four and five here. We encourage you to grab one off the table if you get a chance even after the service. Our covenant sets before us the biblical commitments I will bring up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord such as may be under my care and I will seek the salvation of the unconverted. God wants us to bring up our children in the gospel and also share the gospel with the lost. So in Ephesians six where you are, starting in verse one, familiar passage. Children, obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Honor your father and mother. This is the first commandment with a promise that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land. Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. So we'll continue with the same template that Pastor Nate's been using. First, we wanna make sure that we realize that our church covenant, and if you're not familiar with this is, this is a covenant that members of Omaha Baptist covenant together to uphold as long as you're a member here but it's not just a man -made document that we picked out of the sky. We wanna show that it's biblical and it's root. So the biblical commitment that God wants to keep the gospel first at your home. In the passage here in Ephesians six, we see that raising children is broken down to a couple categories, discipline and instruction. If I was to ask you which one of you desires to be disciplined, who here has ever said, yay, I get to be disciplined today? I'm going to assume no one. My younger brother was the only one who was never disciplined in our home. Because he's sinless is what he would say, that's not the case. The desire not to be disciplined is nothing new though. We see this all the way back to the garden. It's rooted in our very sin nature. If this wasn't the case when Adam and Eve fell in sin and Adam was confronted, he wouldn't have immediately turned to blame his wife Eve and he certainly wouldn't have deflected to blame God for making Eve. So knowing that discipline is not generally enjoyable and it's not something we desire to have, is it negative and should be avoided at all costs? In Hebrews, in Hebrews 12, verse 11, we read a verse that would clear that up for us. For the moment, all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant. So we see the negative. But, as we continue, but later it yields a peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. So what does proper discipline yield? It yields a peaceful fruit of righteousness. Take notice as well the link between discipline and training. Right living is something that's trained into a person through the process of discipline. It's not something that they just organically have when they come into this world. They have quite the opposite. So here we can see how by continually pointing our children to Christ, and when we bring them under the authority of God's word, we're training them in a life through the lens of the gospel. If you look at Ephesians 6 again, we see that it addresses both parties at the home, both the children and the parents. For the sake of time, we won't tackle the children's side of things, but it does start with children. And children, I would just say this, that by honoring your parents, whether you see them as honor worthy or not, you are honoring the Lord who put them in that position of authority. Though it speaks to both children and parents, fathers specifically are pointed out in verse four. It says, fathers do not provoke your children to anger. Fathers are held responsible for leading the charge in the home, just as Adam was specifically addressed in Genesis 3. Though Eve was the first one to sin, God said, Adam, where are you? Fathers are called to discipline their children, but not in a way that causes anger and resentment. The purpose of discipline, and when God disciplines us, it needs to be restorative in nature and never done in anger. It's been said, and this stuck with me when I heard this, I thought, is this not true? It's been said that in a home, if you have all rules with no relationship, you end up with rebellion. But if you have a home that has all relationship with no rules, you end up creating resentment. A father's discipline needs to be carried out in the context of a loving relationship where you have a relationship, but also the clear expectation of what God's word calls us to do. If you find yourself disciplining your child as a hypocrite, doing something that, asking them to do something that you wouldn't do or not modeling it before them, you will provoke your children to anger. But it's not just discipline, and there's also, it speaks to us in Ephesians about the instruction also in home, so gospel instruction we wanna bring in home. I realize that many of you here don't have children, or maybe your children are now out of the home. It's important to think of this call in our covenant not limited only to the child -parent relationship. The exhortation is much broader than that. I think the word it uses here is such may be under my care. It could refer to our relationship for Christ with virtually any relationship that we have. Other people looking to us, whether to raise them physically or even in the spiritual sense. If you wanna turn with me to 2 Timothy 1 .5, I think we see a really interesting illustration of this, how it's played out in scripture. So 2 Timothy 1 .5, this is Paul speaking to Timothy, I'm reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother, Lois, and your mother Eunice, and I'm sure dwells in you as well. Timothy's father's not even in the picture, we're not sure, we're not told why, we don't know what happened to him, but his mother, pardon me, his grandmother, Lois, stepped into the gap and is played a part in Timothy being brought up in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. The apostle Paul also played a huge part in training Timothy without a father in the picture. Both the books, 1 and 2 Timothy, are letters from Paul to this young pastor, training him in the way he should go, just as a parent would train a child. Paul shows his heart towards Timothy by referring to him as his true child in the faith. So whether you've got biological children or not, we're all called to provide gospel instruction to those that may be under our care. There is, however, special onus on parents bringing the gospel into their own home. You'll notice when we read Ephesians 6 that it's not, it's parent -child language used, it's not Sunday school teacher child used, or pastor child, or government child. It's parent -child. God's design is for a father and a mother to raise their own children and pointing them to the Lord as their primary responsibility, not a responsibility they pass off to somebody else. So if I was to ask these questions, are you modeling the gospel at home before your children? Actions speak louder than words. If I was to ask your children what they see in your home, what would they tell me? Do your children know the gospel? Ask them to explain the gospel to you and then check. Is it on point or is there things they're confused about? This is a great question to expose whether we understand what that gospel actually is. It's quite possible that you can be here thinking you know it and don't, or believing some kind of version of a false gospel. That's skewed. When somebody's sinned against in the home, does the gospel that saved you shape how you respond to that? Do our kids, when they sin against each other, does the gospel speak into that relationship? Does it speak into how we correct that behavior? Does the gospel come up regularly in your conversation at home? If the gospel is the lens that we wanna give our children to see the world, then it should be commonplace in our conversations. Let's meditate on those questions as we move on. God doesn't just want us to keep the gospel first at home. He wants us to keep the gospel first in all of our relationships. You can flip over to Matthew 28, very familiar passage, the Great Commission, Matthew 28, verse 16 is where we'll start. Now the 11 disciples went to Galilee to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when he saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus said to them, all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I'm with you always to the end of the age. So here God clearly calls us to go make disciples. If you're a follower of Christ here today, I'm assuming that you agree that making disciples is a clear teaching of scripture and you agree that we should be doing it. The million dollar question is, are we doing it? We'll get to some of the reasons why we don't do it and the reasons that threaten us in a minute, but let's look at first what a disciple is. The Greek term for disciple in the New Testament is mathiteus, I'm no Greek scholar, but we're going with that, which basically means student or learner, but a disciple is also a follower, someone who adheres completely to the teaching of another, making them his rule of life and conduct. So if you're a disciple of Christ or if you're to make disciples of Christ, a Christ follower is someone who adheres completely to the teachings of Christ, making Christ his rule of life and conduct. So how do we make disciples? Well, in verse 19, we read that we're commanded to go. We're not told that potential disciples will come and find us and seek us out. No, the disciples were charged with the command to go. Don't just sit around and wait for this to happen. And if you're familiar with the start of the church in the book of Acts, this wasn't something that they were super keen on doing until they were more or less forced to do that through persecution. I was thinking of an illustration of this, and I was meeting with a young man once who was of the age that he'd finished school and was in the workforce now, and he explained to me that he was desiring to find a godly woman, which was a noble desire, so I said, well, how's that going? And it wasn't going well, so I said, well, what are you doing to make this happen? Nothing, just crickets. So I said, well, you realize the chances of a godly woman coming to your house, breaking in, coming into the basement, interrupting your video games, tapping you on the shoulder and introducing yourself, it's not real high. So maybe it would be smart if you went, go, and did something, took some initiative to find a godly woman, and it's the same with evangelism. There is times where the Lord and his providence will literally draw people in our lap, but generally speaking, it has to be something that we're willing to do, to go, a desire that's gotta come from within. Second, we don't need to go, we need to make sure that we're pointing people to Christ and not to ourselves. It seems obvious that this is the case, but it's something that we often miss the mark on. We might feel the pressure of closing the deal, so to speak, as if you're a salesman on a sales call and you gotta close the deal and make that sale. But if we're to make disciples of Christ, we just need to show them Christ. So how do we do that? If you wanna turn, Romans 10, we'll be going through this a little bit here, 10, 17, where's where we'll start, and then we'll step back a bit. Romans 10, 17 says, so faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of Christ. So if somebody's to come to saving faith, they need to first hear the word. Not my words, not the words of Greg and whatever clever thing I can say, but God's word. So that's 10, 17, but if we were to back up a few verses, let's look at the context of what Paul's saying here. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, you notice the Great Commission language here, that going to all nations, both Jew and Greek, everybody. There's no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How will they call on him and who they have not believed, and how are they to believe in him and who they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news? But they have not all obeyed the gospel, for Isaiah said, Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us? So faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of Christ. So we need to point them to the only thing that can pierce their heart, the heart of any sinner, it's God's word, and the only thing that pierces that is the sword of the spirit, and this verse has already come up in previous messages, but Hebrews 4 .12, for the word of God is living and active, sharper than any tumbled sword, piercing through the division of soul and spirit and joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Give the people the word of God and let God's word do the work. But God doesn't just say, go make disciples, he says to teach the disciples. So if the Lord in his mercy does open the eyes of somebody that we're evangelizing, even if that's our own children or somebody outside of the home, in so many ways the work is just getting started. This idea of teaching is an ongoing interaction, right? In verse 20 it reads, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. This is only possible through ongoing fellowship, doing life together. Remember I said, if it's not like the salesman who's closing the deal and then onto the next deal, if that's not what it is, think of it more like a journeyman -apprenticeship relationship, a relationship where you're bringing somebody along, somebody new in the faith, to come and do life together. You're modeling before them what it is to live for Christ and the way that they should go. If you're doing this properly, you should be able to do as Paul did, or that's what Paul was doing with Timothy, and should be able to say, be imitators of me as I imitate Christ. So it's a biblical commitment, but if we move on, it's also a very threatened commitment. So we see this commitment threatened in our own home as far as raising our children in the Lord. We can all be very guilty of just assuming that our children will just organically come to Christ sort of by living with us, maybe coming to church, maybe you generally just hang around most of the time with Christian people, and you might figure that that's good enough. If you want to turn with me to the Old Testament, passage you're probably less familiar with, judges, judges two, we'll see a sobering account here of why this isn't the case. So the Jewish people have, God's people have just come into the land, and the land that he miraculously gave them, the promised land, and a generation, the first generation is coming to an end. We pick up in verse seven. And the people served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had sent all the great work the Lord had done for Israel. And Joshua, the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at age 110. Now if we jump down to verse 10, we read these sobering words. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord, or the work that he had done for Israel. And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals. So we see in one generation, the people of God, God's chosen people, went from following the Lord, and seeing him work in unbelievably miraculous ways, and bringing them into the promised land, to not even knowing the Lord, or even recognizing the work that he had done. I know when I read that, I was thinking, how is that even possible? There's probably lots of reasons why this is possible, and this speaks to our own home. There's probably lots of reasons why our kids can be in the same place that God's people were there. Let's just look at a couple of them. First off, I thought, in my own life, what are the things, it's just, first thing I thought of, it's just easier not to. Parenting is hard work. Life is busy, and parenting is hard. Being intentional in your parenting, and takes discipline of yourself. None of us like to discipline ourselves. It's sometimes easier to discipline somebody else. If you're like me, and you've worked all day, and you come home, the last thing you probably feel like doing is having intentional gospel conversations with your wife and kids. That's probably at war with your own sloth. It's just easier maybe to turn your brain off, and turn the TV on. I think we can feel like, maybe like the Israelites did when they got into the land finally, that the worst is behind us. God's been good, let's get comfortable, and mail it in. But when we do that, we fail to notice that if we're not intentionally teaching our kids, don't be deceived, somebody else is. Somebody else is gonna fill that gap. Joshua obviously felt, that generation obviously assumed that their children would just learn through osmosis, being around them, that they would learn what it was to follow God. And they did learn through osmosis, the scripture tells us that, but they didn't learn from mom and dad, they learned from the pagans around them. They learned to worship Baal instead of the living God. I think another threat we have to this, and again I'm speaking to myself in this, is we're just too distracted. We live in a world that's never had more distractions. This smartphone alone has the ability to take our complete attention at any time. Funny cat videos, need I say anymore? My wife and I often talk about just how different it is as we're looking to raise kids now when we grew up. And I know there's people here with grayer hair than me. But we had no TV or TV with three channels that were all fuzzy. No stores were open on Sunday. The stores that were open closed at five o 'clock. And I could go on and now my smartphone alone allows me to watch more videos than I could watch in an entire lifetime even if I wanted to. I can buy whatever I want from all over the globe and have it delivered to my door in a day or less. The battle for our focus on being intentional in anything in the Lord, especially parenting, is real and it's not going away. And the next generation is gonna face it in a way even more difficult than ours. So I think it's also important though too that some of the distractions that we have as far as being intentional in parenting, and keep in mind when I'm talking parenting, again, this could be discipling somebody that's not your own child. That some of the stuff that's at war with us can be good things. We can be distracted doing all kinds of good things for or people even pouring into other people at the very neglect of our own children and our wives. I think the log spec principle in Matthew 7 where we're to make sure to get the giant two by four out of our eyes before we remove the speck out of our brother's eyes to make sure that we're pouring into our family at home. If you're a father in particular, that's your primary goal to be pouring in at home and not busy fixing everybody else's problem and neglecting your own children. I think you see this, unfortunately, in a lot of pastors' kids who resent the church, I think because dad was never around, busy helping everybody. So it's something that's real, not just for pastors. Another thing that causes real war in this area is parents not being on the same page. And this is a particularly hard one and I'm gonna be sensitive here because I know there's lots of people here that have unsafe spouses. But you can have, we can even be both safe parents at home and we can be just biblically unaware or maybe unconvinced that the scripture has much direction in this area. If this is you and you're not certain what the scripture says about parenting, there's more than just Ephesians that are brought up here. We're actually currently in table time, so after the service, we're doing a parenting class and this is our third time through it. It's not our own class that I dreamt up, don't worry. It's a paltra parenting class, but it's speaking specifically about the heart of the situation. So the heart of the child, which is desperately lost, can only be saved through the gospel. And it's a 10 -week video series and it's been fantastic in growing my own understanding of what it is to be a parent. And my wife and I talk about how it would have been great to have watched this 17 years ago. But I would encourage you to do that. If you're a saved couple here, put the time in and grow in your understanding of this. The Bible's not silent in the errand of parenting, so treat it as such and pour some time into it. But it's possible too that there's friction at home because your spouse isn't a believer and I know that's a lot of people here. And maybe you deeply wanna raise your kids in the gospel, but your spouse is pushing against that. And there's obviously no quick fix, easy answer here. Your first priority is to pray for the salvation of your lost spouse. That's the heart of the issue right there now. And I know there's many of you that have been doing that for years. So continue to do that, but I think what can be more difficult even than praying for a lost person for years is particularly in a home is living in a way that points them to Christ on a daily basis. So to model that devotion to Christ in a kind way before them, 1 Peter 3, this is speaking of wives, but 1 Peter 3, 1, calls on believing wives to live in a godly fashion so that their lost husbands might be won without a word by the conduct of their wives.

This is innovation now, bringing you stories of revolutionary ideas, emerging technologies, and the people behind the concepts that shape the future. Doctor John Mather, Nobel laureate and NASA researcher, is leading one of the teams funded by NASA's innovative advanced concepts. Doctor mathers team, hopes to use a starshade in conjunction with a ground based telescope to analyze the dim light of exoplanets. Building on previous nyack work, the team is determined to shape for the shade, but they face mechanical design issues. So doctor Mather is turning to students for help. We will be joined to the next step, which is to set up a student challenge. We will require them to start with a mechanical analysis to show why their idea could actually be stiff enough and light enough to achieve the desired results, and they will finally end up building scale models to demonstrate their ideas. Concurrently, they will be working with us the professionals to see what we can accomplish together. Challenges like this bring fresh ideas to the table and many students report that their involvement in a NASA challenge help them refine their career choice. For innovation now, I'm Jennifer pulley.

"Something productive. Oh, you're so funny. Okay, well, I do really appreciate it to you. Thank you so much. Welcome. I'll see you in a couple minutes. Yep. Thank you for the money you're paying me. Wait, what? Bye bye. I really appreciate hearing what's happening from a teen perspective, as many articles suggest, we have to have honest conversations with our students to hear where they're coming from to understand how better to help them out of this abyss. But I also think my son was so right about the need to focus on critical thinking skills, and I would add self reflection practices. When students reflect on their learning, they have to be able to analyze. Unfortunately, in our current, teach to the test educational system and the stifling of uncomfortable facts, teachers are often denied the right to help students sift through this onslaught of information and misinformation, bombarding them online and other places, constantly. Textbooks are a good place to begin discussions before heading into more fraught territory. One year I was teaching middle school social studies and I had to use the textbooks they gave me. Some of the time we would go through and look at all of the inaccuracies and biases in their texts and I'd have them research to find the truth. It was also a great lesson on how to vet online sources, but I was teaching in an independent school. So it was a lot easier for me to detour from the prescribed content to give students these crucial skills, even though I don't have all the answers for how to deal with the Andrew Tate's out there and all their minions. I do know that there are a lot of solutions out there. Teachers shouldn't have to deal with this individually. These are school wide problems and I hope that schools and parents will be supporting or even inaugurating these efforts. Parents please talk to your kids about this if you haven't already. If you have boys, help them get out of this rabbit hole of bad behavior if they're in it and help them stay out of it if they're not. Check in with your girls to see if they've been affected by what's going on, help them make good choices about how to deal with sexism and misogyny. Okay, one last thing that I haven't yet read in any article. We need to educate our girls. We need to empower them to deal with these misogynistic attacks to be strong and secure to help them feel confident to seek out relationships with boys who respect them, not belittle them, whether it's as friends or in a romantic way. There is a lot of work to be done, but we don't have any other choice than to do it. I would love to hear from you, so if you want to share what's happening in your classes or at home, or how you're dealing with it, that might help others. Please DM me on Twitter at overthrowing Ed. Or even better yet, you can leave a voice message on speak pipe. You'll see it on my website. It's super easy to use. I want to thank all of the teachers on Twitter who already shared what's been happening in their classes and how they're dealing with it. Lastly, any trolls out there, I have one thing to say. Don't bother me and get a life. Technically, I guess that's two things. I want to thank my son tuvia for talking to me about this months ago. And then agreeing to talk with me about it for you all. And I also want to thank my awesome phone commercial helper, Jake Miller. Sometimes when I'm writing certain commercials I'll hear a specific person's voice in my head. And this time it was definitely Jake. I hope you enjoy all of my commercials and the topics I cover and then of course share them with others. If there is a topic I've never covered that you'd like me to or one that needs to be revisited, please let me know and have a

"You stand for what you stand for. Yes and it's been amazing to me being involved with others that have different beliefs than i do You know you would think that they would say well. We can't be friends because some of the world that's how they believe right now like if you don't believe the same thing i do like we can't be friends but instead what i found. Is that some of my best. Friends have different beliefs than i do. And when and at least in college when someone else knew would come into the group and they'd say oh let's do this and and everyone would be going in a direction. They courtney come on. Come on and my friends like no no. Don't ask her she. she doesn't do that. The almost my friend stood up for me and my morals and my beliefs. Before i even have the chance to say no. Thank you there. Now she do that. Don't even offer to her. You know well guys. I know that you guys. This is your senior year. It's so unorthodox no-one senior year has looked like you guys senior year. And i was talking to another girl that i know that graduated this year and about a couple of things that people are doing. Facebook like hey. Let's encourage the seniors by doing this. And i was like to encourage you. And she's like no. I saw that. I was like okay. Cool thanks so how can we be encouraging you guys as graduating seniors and like what is maybe some great advice that people have given you as you're going off into your next part of your life like one of the biggest things like to encourage us. Just be patient with us about compassion for us with what we're going through and everything like that like we're all just At this point just taking what we're giving in kinda just going with it so if you just patient with us just really understand or try to understand what we're going through or Recipocrate back something like the best advice. I is to just live in the moment. And i think all this happening has really just like an eye opening for that as you never know. I never expected my seniors also cancelled. I never expected you did not finish school on national swine every eight You would ask me your been like what he talking about like that would never have. And so but now. I feel like we always say in a moment like enjoy every moment but now i feel like it's so much more real because it's like everything could change everything be taken away from. You like in the south figure so you just have to really enjoy what you and i feel like going into college now. A different mindset.

"In line with what you have learned in your relationship with. Christ what you have learned in your study of the bible and impair. How do you stay in line with that. When there's these people around you that are saying. Hey what about this or choose this or say this or watch that. How do you do that. Like bennett said so on closing for a while. And it's a whole different world like coming from a christian school christian high school in going on my life and you're surrounded by these people that don't curse don't go parties. Don't do these things but then you put into this like club world where that's like everyone and you're like the one percent team doesn't do all that so instead of that being one i've out that goes prices at high school. Now you're the person that's like. Oh the christian. Like she doesn't miss doesn't say that so it's definitely hard in to like come into that. Keep your morals and not kind light. Just go with what they're saying it'd be like oh it's fine like i'm here like i'm in different worlds. Now it's not the case as they're all doing so that's definitely something that's hard especially because when you're surrounded with it so much but i think really dangerous i'm being surrounded by other people and just knowing that it's okay that i'm not saying those things. It's okay that i'm not doing that like that doesn't make me cool or who i am so but it's definitely hard and challenging. You really have to just. I feel like that goes back to like how your foundation is bill. How much might your parents have instilled into you about worldview values which values and everything like that and like how strong. You're going to be especially going off to college. That's they thing too is because now you're being taken out of our little bubble and being put into the big role aware. It's kind of your choice. Like are you gonna choose to go to church every sunday or you're going to choose to go to a party or hanging out with friends took it really becomes i of me now. It's like now we are so now you really have to make your in. Might decide what you wanna do or silly. So i think it is suggest like i think staying. In god's word is the big part of that just like really trying just small bags like having burst pop up on your each day or doing five minutes five minutes like the small things like that are gonna keep you continually just like reminding you to stay in that bennett..

"Just have their back and then like eventually like you said like they'll come around in whether it's like coming to church or just a i i need help. I mean sometimes like these kids technically like. I just want to tell you i love you and if you pray for my family that'd be awesome. It's like those things. Like george saint like those make your day because all the hard work all the labor you put in all the time that you encourage and pray for those dudes. It's like it all kind evens out and it feels really rewarding. But i think the biggest thing is just like hiding their back taking out to lunch after games like not not coming in with having all the right answers but just like being there when they need it because like some of those kids have crazy home lives and you'd never know it but like when they need someone to talk to in. There's no one better for for them to point to jesus. I guess one of my friends. 'cause it being somebody's jesus friend like they're they're never going to you know not never but they're not coming to you saying hey. I want to become a christian. Or i want to. You know. go to church with you but when life goes crazy. You're the person that they call and say. Hey i mean. I don't even know if there's a god but i know you believe in prayer and i could really use prayer right now or positive thoughts if they that's how they prefer to say you guys are in the sports world and i am like the farthest thing from an appalachian. I'm a musician. So i that's the direction i took But and my brothers are both athletes. And i feel like some of the things that we experience them With their friends and in the sports world and me with my friends in the music world relationships outside of the actual activity what we experienced was a very secular world right. I mean obviously but a world where we were constantly in contact with people that had very different beliefs than we did very different morals than we did and the opportunity to make very different choices than we were raised with. And i feel like college even more than high school. It was like the world was like here here. All of these other options that you could choose you guys already find yourself in situations like that..

"I want to know you're talking high schoolers like people that don't go to school like northwest. That has that built in discipleship. What would you say to them about. Discipleship why is it important that they find person to walk alongside them. I think it's really important even like if you're not a christian anything like that and if you not really know about discipleship or whatever. I think it's just important to have that person that you can talk to just like out like i feel like so many people especially in argh age like just keep everything in light conceal everything and then like one day it all comes out but if you have that person or someone in your life that you can really liked trust Than just like telling them this year there and they're walking with you in kind of getting another opinion on things rather than just like keeping it all in and so not only. Is it sharing price in like his word your journey but it's also just having someone to talk to about life and just kind of adding someone where you can trust them enough to just call them and just likely they'll get caught butts chat and so i feel like that's a really good start especially for people that aren't christians. Like don't know god is just like lesson get coffee talk about life like let's just talk about what's going on in your life and then slowly start introducing more things like your journey and everything like that but in the beginning like it's more about just sharing sharing stories and everything like that just having someone to talk to and it would you say to other high schoolers. I would say all ago from weather jordan win. Because i really liked what she said but i think for me i kind of think of it is like working out. Like if i work out with the person i feel like my productivity in like my. I guess like the accountability of it. I'm able to do so much more in it. It like encouraged me a lot more by this work on my own. It's kinda like I don't really have a timetable or get through. When i do. But it's like. I don't have someone else to push me and go alongside with being kinda like drive me to where i need because sometimes we need to be told. No it's like we're not really gotta tone ourselves that but when we have someone else in their life that's able to encourage us push us in like most importantly challenges that's really important. It's the same way in our faith. I'm actually going through like a bible plan with one of my friends at a public school nearby. But it's able to help us so much because we both were a little bit like yes stagnant with like the whole corn thing and it was tough for but we both kinda like. Hey we need. We need help. We need a change in. We really haven't missed today so it's been able to encouraging it challenge each other. I think we have someone else alongside of you you like. I don't know at least for me. I don't wanna disappoint them. So it's like you have that built in accountability. Which is something. We all need whether we know it or not. Yeah at the beginning..

"I think it's fun. How you get to have that in and also flip. Be that for other people too. I think that's one of the cool sports. That's awesome talk about that flipping thing bennett that you just talked about like. What was it like when you went on the other side of the coin. Yeah i think it was really cool because then all of a sudden like i got in a way like make someone's day so that's kind of how i felt in now it was able to like. Oh i i see luke i see joe i see a jego like i see all these kids that are in my group in. It's like it's i don't it's really not like an easy way to describe it but it's just fun because you see someone across campus and you smile say hi like i don't know because you can see how brightens your dike is. That's how i felt so. Yeah was it hard for you jordan as you went into that like leadership role was that hard or was that an easy transition. I've no easy transition. Just because i had like such great leaders that really prepared me to be like i wanted to be just like them and i looked up to them so much. I wanna be who you are to the kids like. I want to do that. And i want to develop that relationship and so i was so excited to fi- Everything to be leader just because of how much they had impacted. I feel like it's pretty easy transition into that. Now as people get older and we talked to them about discipleship like if you talked to people my age and you say hey i'd like for you to go and disciple like a group of high schoolers or a group of young moms or whoever. It might be a lot of times. They're like okay. Like i don't know enough like i don't have a degree from seminary i just. I'm not a bible scholar. So i just don't feel prepared but you guys are both saying like you jumped into it. Did you ever feel not prepared. I don't think we're really prepared. Your s i just like with. How much reporting by our staff buyer teachers and just by having like chad will anything like that..

"I think i would say is is same thing we told those freshmen are those tenth graders. Do what the freshman you might not get the results. You're looking for more like i said with me. I might not get those for ten years. Some kids i see it right away. That's great but but stay in it Anything worth doing is worth doing for a while. You know and we're doing well. And i got a kid. I i mentioned a minute ago. On play frisbee golf with george yesterday and i started saipan give when he was in eighth grade and now. He's the college pastor a church and i. I got a a student that i had Fourteen years ago and the student just started. Trust in me about rears. I got students that. I've i've done weddings now. Kids taught junior is. So if you're a cycling can't be patient tr- greg boyle One of my favorite humans on the planet. If you don't have greg boyle he's he's a priest in a. I can't talk. He says he talks about yesterday. Talks about discipleship in his books. With these guys come out of gangs and come out of prison. And he says he says ours is a god who waits. Who are we not to trust in the slow work of god and those words of stuck with me. Because i i want as a the cycler i wanna see changed right now. I wanna see things but Trust in the slower got well. That's our culture. Our culture media right fast food. Absolutely and i think that's why discipleship sometimes gets a bad rap is because discipleship is a relationship am relationship no relationship no good deep meaningful relationship happens in a day. Absolutely not right you can. You can have fun with someone you can get to know someone in a day but that relationship is not. It's going to take years to cultivate that honesty between you two and the trust and if discipleship really truly is a relationship it takes a while to build that bridge that relationship bridge that can handle the big things that are gonna come up in life. You know young wife has a great model. I think it's it's one of the best ever says. Earned the right to be heard that earned the right to be urge. You don't just come in with it. That takes time for kid to trust you. You know as as an army chaplain That's why i'm out there with the guys out. There do whatever they're doing so they see me. That's that's a tough thing so it it. It takes someone to ask you one question before we bring in our students. What would be your one challenge that you have for our listeners. Challenge i it's i.

"So let's get a little more practical here as we are kind of talking about discipleship and talking about high schoolers. The students you work with are probably really honest with you or the students that your juniors and seniors are working with are probably those freshmen as sophomores are honest with them. And they're coming to you with things they're like. I don't. I don't know what to do with this. You know whether it's a belief system or whether it's something going on in a person's life whatever it might be more honest with you. Then some of them are with their parents. And so so yeah. What parents need to know that they might not know about highschoolers today. A question actually spoke that we mentioned reverently small. a chapter three is all about partners parents As a youth pastor early on. I thought you know parents of the enemy and you know kids come. Tell me all this stuff. Their parents like parenthood. Do you know. I'd save the world so great and then december fourteenth two thousand happened when i became a dad and i was like. Oh my gosh. This is hard This is hard and our best goal So so your question was called. What do parents needed no. They need to know their kids. Need other people in life besides them. It can't just be mom and dad i know i i. There's somebody knows. Thanks george George brown and i my son needs franz life. My son life My son goes to punk rock. Didn't know that. Okay but i am. Apparently no they're not alone. They're not it's not for the faint of heart but the the struggles they're dealing with everybody. You know the instagram culture. Looks like everything's perfect on. Their side of the fence is just not kim's at no one is never too late. If you've kinda screwed this thing up your first teen years is okay. Mom and dad give back in the mix with your kids but just make sure i if nothing else if your kid doesn't want to talk to you right now. That's okay but no you gotta make sure they have somebody they can talk to calm and a whole nother convert. I mean just think. It's obvious what i have to say. Things come up sexual abuse alcohol. That's stuff we don't let kids deal right just wanted. I think it's obvious that stuff goes right to moment that Again i have to say it we're not talking about that stuff. We're talking about stuff that you know. That's nothing art of our training with our students. Hey if this comes up in your in your group we need to come to me right away and we're gonna go rank mommy death so because it's not. I learned a long time ago. I want to be partners with mom and dad. I wanna be with them against. That's i am debt. The i'm telling you your two boys is you're gonna blink courting need our people our lives but you all know that that you can't do it alone.

"Tradition stuff. Because they're so so much beauty in it is being a guy. I grew up in church. And of course you felt very like you know it's just this liturgy and it's just dumb. It's it's it's and everybody's like all's uptight. And then i got i go to a evangelical church. I'm like oh my goodness this. Everybody's like whoo the liturgy. It's almost like straight hair. Girls want curly hair people in short so we were never happy what we have and And there's so much beauty and tradition unless we're worshiping that worshiping the of worship. Don't tell me your church doesn't have a bit. I don't care what church you free songs you got. Sermon you got communion. You've got a couple of songs offering a suspect. We all have the literacy so you you don't. You don't do communion on any other sunday. The first sunday of the month only once a month not twice twice would be just overkill. Crazy crazy was re second. Hesitation is in their software. Yeah yeah you know. And i. I like what you're saying about the fact that we do have to look at our own traditions and we have to. I think sometimes it those discussions can be hard to say. Well i prefer the liturgy you. Or i don't prefer the liturgy to hold onto those things but i would imagine that if you are an older person trying to disciple a younger person. There's gotta be a little bit of that like give because you can't tell someone okay. Well the first thing you need to do is go. Find a church. That has a liturgical service. No no how do you disciple someone that comes from a different generation than you a different church culture then you just at maybe even like a different a biblical understanding. Well you got it depends on what try the of discipleship is right. Let's get there. I wanna make people like me right now on. Jesus so. I want make people like me under say. Hey if you're not doing it my way what's wrong with you. Know i got beat kids. Where they're at. I gotta meet people where they are at. And i got to see teacherless. Follow christ not me.

Yeah absolutely and i'd love to information for that book will throw it up on the show notes in case people are interested in accessing. Yeah awesome In earlier conversation that we had about a week ago. You said something really interesting to me and it. I've never heard it. You said that there's a new high school culture every three years. Where did you learn that. And is this something that you've seen to be true. Yeah well i've learned that from tim reid. Little shot out to one of my professors timorese a legend in arizona. He was a southwestern college. Acu just retired after forty years in ministry and probably ministry glasses right and He would he. Would you know we're seniors in college. So we're thinking we're pretty it with the With young guys he says no. You've been out for years. You don't have any. I don't think it science. If it don't think george barna survey study with thousands of people figured out since then but i've seen it. I've seen words change cultures chain. The technology has changed so much length. There could be someone graduated. And there's this new app go round in high school The the older kids have no idea about and the teachers. You know we're we're we're fifth. I'm a high school for thirty years. That means there's been ten culture giant. There's been more than that It's one hundred percent different. Courtney saw i have seen that to be true. Big time i just see again just in language and attitude in entitlement in Anything i see kiss are different. So i it's it's is bizarre september. He was right. Yeah yeah even. When you're talking about those mindsets i mean you've got to kind of work. I i wanna say work against them. But i almost feel like no you have to work with them with those mindsets. And how is that. Changed your discipleship program at the church as you've worked through years of apathy and years of entitlement and years of of maybe even big things going like this this year code one thousand nine hundred and big things he's dealing with. How is your discipleship program changed. I see like one our numbers of change right so depending on how. You're doing things so we used to school. Two hundred our school four fifty so obviously we got to change. That's why that's why we actually. We don't want these kids. We didn't want these kids being leaders. Because we're like they're not really. They're not ready. We want to.

"We have All that stuff. That's what i do as a spiritual formation. Just anything to help. Our students grow in their face. Yeah well part of the reason why we got connected is because of my love for discipleship and my belief and my passion for the fact that it is so important for all of us and your is actually. Put that into your program. So can you talk about discipleship program that you do with the students at northwest. Absolutely absolutely and speak for you. Courtney and i i love hearing your like go up a notch you start talking about disciples with that is and and you got the original right. The jesus was the original youth pastor. Yeah and he twelve guys in his youth group and one of them went south it so even that he jesus night see some fruit in his ministry for three years he sought. It's like people make their own decisions. We can get the logical about judas later but so our program here in a nutshell. Our discipleship program We have Community groups they meet on chapel days which is wednesdays and every week and they are groups of anywhere from five to nine students and they have a leader. If you're a freshman year leader is a junior sophomore. Year leader is a senior since we kinda grow on. It's not adult students eating. No yeah so it gets kind of passed out so those those leaders are being kinda Ruled by teachers. Okay and then all our other kids that aren't in a group aren't leaders. They're in a group with teacher so if that makes any sense i think it does a little bit. Yeah our our freshman sophomore disciple by their peers. Almost by kids a couple years ahead of them which is beautiful and messy right but you're also allowing opportunity for those that maybe don't feel comfortable leading a group you're still giving them that discipleship through teachers juniors and seniors. That was probably about about seven to ten percent of our kids will be a leader see. You're talking ninety percent are in a group get to be a junior senior. Okay i would imagine that you don't just throw those juniors and seniors into a group of freshmen sophomores in safety. Go oh my goodness we tell the kids every year. According you notice being around students when they're juniors got a freshman bunch of freshmen. They don't know each other is awkward. Every mr i can't do this. Mr garner they will listen to mr garland walk. Just relax okay. You gotta give it. You have to give it a year. Yeah you might not see any kind of relationship until they're sophomores and some of them don't wanna put in that time but any anytime we're talking about discipleship. We talked about jesus a second ago. Three and a half years invest in these guys night in bay twenty four seven We're talking about once a week. you're not gonna it takes time it takes and those kids say say course..
