So the fda used to be entirely funded by taxpayer dollars as it should be and the fda is supposed to work for the american people to keep them safe to oversee pharmaceutical companies including vaccine companies.

Abraham Lincoln Said the Only Thing That Could Destroy Us Is Us
"Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us with one blow? Never All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined. With all the treasure of the earth except our own. In their military chests. With Bonaparte for a commander could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge. In a trial of 1000 years. At what point then. Is the approach of danger to be expected. I answer. If it is ever to reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot. We must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men. We live Through all time. Or die by suicide. And he wraps up With The rest of the admonition and you can read that for yourselves. But To sum this up. Abraham Lincoln gave us this morning and he said, this country comes down because we'll take it down ourselves. Mark Levin wrote the book, American Marxism. Because he clearly articulates But that's happened where here doesn't mean the country is Over. It means they've gotten a footing and we can't play games anymore. It is no longer a spectator sport. This is critically important. I think it's it's important that we realize these things again. What Lincoln said. And he said it in 18 38 is so apt
Building the Next Napa Valley In the HIMALAYAS With Wine Expert Michael Juergens
"Lot of people have dreams like i have dreams. Kate has dreams. People listening to this podcast. They have dreams. But there's a difference between having dreams and actually feet on the grounds accomplishing dreams. So let's get specific like let's really talk this through. Because i think fire nation can maybe learn from the action that you're going to be taking about great ways. They can go forward accomplishing their dream. So how are you accomplishing your dream of building the next napa valley in the himalayas recognizing once again that had didn't start off as my dream to be involved. I just thought it would be super cool if they did it But then once. I once i became involved in realized i could be a piece of this and actually i think that bhutan is probably the last country in the world. That has the organic potential to grow. Amazing wine grapes. That doesn't already do it. Most places that can do it had been doing it for thousands of years and it was just to your point earlier. It's remote. And so you know marco polo and the roman army never got there with their handfuls grapes and so they ever planted in there. But what i'm doing is is we've taken a very collaborative approach with that. The country You know there's a. I don't know if you're familiar with with batons spent some time and and obviously the himalayas but they have a concept called gross domestic happiness instead of gross domestic product which is an amazing way to live. But they believe that. What's more important is the happiness of their citizens rather than any arbitrary economic success and so they have different pillars that that guide the gross domestic happiness for us. What we did is. We didn't approach the wine industry as like. Hey here's a way to make a few bucks it was. Here's a way that we think that this mashes extremely well with what you're trying to do with gross national happiness. And and then we went around and we got buy in from all of the various ministries of the government. You know that would have a say in this. The ministry of agriculture the ministry of economic affairs and so so on and so forth so we started with that then. Obviously you know. There's a enormous amount of logistics to try to get grapes up to the himalayas in vineyard plant. And but were. We've planted eight vineyard so far were up to about. We've got a hundred acres or so in total vineyard land but only about fifty acres are planted where we're still trying to experiment and see what's going to work there because no one knows it's never been done before and so you know back to your tactical what do you do. Well you do as much research as you can but eventually you just gotta grip it and rip it and and so we're doing that but we're doing it in a very mindful fail forward kind of way.

We Must Own Our Complicity in Afghanistan
"The united states shame right over its precipitous sprint out of afghanistan shadow this country's conscience for generation every horror story and they will keep coming is partly the result of our decision to bug out the death and destruction that occur in previously secure parts of that country will be on the bipartisan decision to exit the fiasco of president biden ordered quick march out of the country with its arbitrary deadline and false proclamations of the heroic airline effort. Airlift effort will garner the most shame but barack obama and donald trump all wanted the same thing they wanted out to all three presidents lacked. What abraham lincoln possessed and george w bush often display the strenght to shoulder. The suffering of war brought home in dead and wounded. Young soldiers sailors airmen and marines the country. Tired of it too. We do not have the ability to fight a long war. Even with minimal casualties be because for us. There is no such thing as a minimal casualty. We can take station troops on board. We peacekeeping missions in kosovo but we cannot endlessly endure the loss of american life to enemy combatants so we left but our greatest centers to have left without first overseeing an exodus of those who were desperate to run from baruch theocracy. We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years. We pretend it all of us at some sort of middle ground might emerge between the darkest midnight and the dawn of democracy. Turns out there wasn't such a middle ground and yet we owed an exit to those who relied on falso.
Gen. Mark Milley's Treasonous Calls With China
"You know what's not political. You know what shouldn't be political. The reporting that suggests that the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff reassured the chinese communist parties liberal army general that he would give the communist country a heads up if president trump launched an attack on china in the final months of his presidency. This was done. Apparently in a series of reported phone calls with general milley reassuring china. The we give them a heads up if we were going to attack him now. First of all the idea that trump would have ever considered an attack on. China is beyond preposterous. It's a complete bald-faced brazen effort to continue to make people try to hate trump as my friend mark davis in dallas points out trump hatred erodes the brain. It it it just. It does it. Just it eats at your brain. People who trump turn into irrational kooks kooks sit around and say art and donald trump was going to new china. General milley is a kook if this is true. Now i don't know it's bob woodward and robert kosters reporting in with in secret phone calls. According to bob woodward's book the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff wanted to assure china that we would not strike. He was he was literally committing treason. According to the book again. I would always do that. Caveat according to the book if the book is true if the book is correct you got the chairman of the joint chiefs acting like a trader.

The Lord Spoke to Prophet Mike Thompson About a Tearing in Washington D.C.
"Five and a half six months ago. Lord spoke to me about a tearing in washington. Dc vision a tearing. Yeah in this vision. He took me to washington. Dc and he showed me politicians. There were many of them. Those in the su- administration right at this particular point others many where there was a tearing their clothes. It would occur in their shirt or their blouse should their pants their skirt and the tears would be like two to four inches. They start at the top and they would go down towards the bottom and the symbolism of that i think was important because it meant from heaven earth. It was like the tearing of the veil. When jesus was crucified and then parts of their skin would be exposed and that exposing was what god was beginning to show me at that point that as we proceeded that there would be greater exposing not just exposing. But something done about it. And that's why the angels in the vision. That i had just a few days. Ago is so important. The army of angels because something was being done about it. We can't see everything that's happening behind the scenes. You see my My gift is to see what's going on in the spiritual realm and then report it to the body of christ so that they can see those kind of things and have hope and have a sense of direction and purpose. The prophecy never ever ever exalts itself above the word of god So we always match. According to what god is saying but one of the things we have to understand is even though that the holy spirit will never violate the word of god. The holy spirit doesn't mind violating our interpretation and misunderstanding of the word of god Because he is god and so what he's doing is he's moving. There is a great revival. That is happening right now. Airy this is we are. On the verge. We're on the coast of something that is just changing like

"Monday. The second of April seventeen seventeen thirty nine marked a significant day in the history of Christianity and it was on that day that John Wesley finally abandoned his reticence to preach outside the church and at King's Wood in Bristol. He took to open air. Evangelism Wesley's decision Asian brought him face to face with the common people and ignited a revival. The likes of which this country has never seen before. I may never see again regarding not great day. Wesley wrote in his diary. These words at four in the afternoon I submitted to be more vile. I love that. That's crazy man. I submitted to be more vile and proclaimed in the highways the glad tidings of salvation speaking from a little eminence in underground adjoining to the city to about out three thousand people the Scripture on which I spoke with this the spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor hair. Sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives recovery of sight to the blind to set at liberty them that are bruised to proclaim the acceptable year of the lawsuit when Wesley finally abandoned the church approach to go and preach to the world to preach to the common people the portion of scripture that he chose to preach on. Was this passage that we're looking at this receiving subsequent history of course records that John Wesley lived out about text bringing the Gospel to the disenfranchised and to the needy masses of this country. Again if you know anything about ovation on me you know that the Salvation Army is as a grandchild of John Wesley. He's in our records he's in our DNA in the early days. At least our battle cry was for all the world in our early days offices went and appointed to call. They were appointed pointed to towns and they were that focus on those in spiritual and physical and emotional need in that community not not just on their congregation. So what's changed. Jesus still has that worldwide mission not sense of being for the world for our community not exclusively for Christians uh-huh and for the church. The question is if Jesus does do we whereas our our focus. It's lovely to come together. It's lovely to care and love each other as we do here to feel as if we're family. I'm we should never lose that. But Jesus came for those outside the family that should be why basingstoke core is here to we exist not for ourselves but for those outside of our doors for some reason which perhaps we will never fully understand this this side of heaven. Jesus is counting on us to get out there in the world and prepare the way for him in the way that we look and act like like him around those we spend our lives with our mission is an extension of Jesus mission. Our Holiness is a mobile holiness. It's not something we leave the doors when we leave here this evening we take it with us. It's a holiness cleanest that he's lived anywhere and everywhere. So ask yourself this evening. Do you have a heart for the world. Do you still believe that we can win. The world for Jesus could basingstoke being stoke core win basingstoke for Jesus the answer is only in Holy Spirit power and only if we consistently focus on rescuing the perishing around us. We must love them. We must care for them. We must ache for them. We must hurt for them. We must weep for them. We must open up to them to give ourselves away to see the needs in the community around us and to meet them finally crosby right in Hasaan rescue the perishing duty demands it strength ally ally Labor the Lord will provide back to the narrow way patiently win them. Tell the poor wanderer. A Savior has died. Rescue the parachuting care for the dying. Jesus is Merciful. Jesus will save. Will you join that mission of Jesus this evening.

"Let's pray together. Ebony father as we open your word this evening we ask you to speak to Louis to challenge US where we need challenging to require us to help win the weld. It's for Jesus to nourish US and help us to live for you in this coming week. We pray these prayers is in your name over the last couple of weeks. We have looked at this. This three part series all about change that horrible seaward that lots of don't like particularly in this modern autumn world where everything seems to change every five minutes but what we've learned over the last couple of weeks. I hope is that God wants Change Zhou a few weeks ago. We thought about changing ourselves last week we thought about changing now call and this evening. We think that it's time them to change the World Catherine booth once wrote if we are back to better the future we must disturb the present if we to better the future. We must disturb the president. God wants changing our lives in our core on in the world around around us. And what he needs us to be is ever-growing ever-changing disciples who are his change agents in the world this evening. We're thinking about winning the world for Jesus that comes from the Great Commission. We Find Great Commission. Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight Verses Eighteen to twenty twenty where Jesus comes to his disciples and says all Party and Heaven and on Earth has been given to me go there for a make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I've commanded you and behold I am with you always to the end of the age. Jesus commanded his disciples and by extension his checks including ourselves to go and make disciples of all all nations to win the world for Jesus. Now if you know anything about the Salvation Army's history and I guess that most of you know in quite a bit about the salvation history then you know that. Our founders William and Catherine booth and their peers those Christian mission and in the Salvation Army in his early day early days took that great commission very very seriously they took it on. They run with it. So when the Christian mission changed its name to the Salvation Army in eighteen. Seventy eight William Booth who had become the general of the Salvation Army wrote in the Christian Mission magazine. These words the Christian mission has met in Congress to make war. It is organized the Salvation Army to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the howdy ghost into every corner of the world. That's what he thought. The Salvation Army's purpose was to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the holy. Any ghost into every corner of the world and Catherine Booth wrote around about the same time the decree has gone forth. Both the kingdoms of this world should become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and he show rain. Who's right it is from the river to the ends of the Earth? We we shall win. It is only a question of time and then she wrote. I believe that this movement is to inaugurate the Great Final Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ she truly believed that the Salvation Army was going to be the movement inaugurated the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ what do you think about that one on exactly. Why not because we we may say well? Let's Victorian arrogance to say that this movement is the one to inaugurate the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ but they really believed it. They really believe there and from this conviction that they would be the ones that would inaugurate this great final conquest of our Lord. Oh Jesus Christ the growth of the Salvation Army mission in the world grew at breath taking speed and it only grew with that breath taking speed because God was with them and they truly believed that this was what was going to happen that they really would take Jesus easiest on his blood and fire the hardy ghost into every corner of the world but they would win the world for Jesus. How could they have that kind of conviction? How could they have that kind of confidence? Will they believed in God. He wanted to win the world for himself. John Three Sixteen says God so loved the world. It doesn't say for God also love Christians. For God's love the Church for God so loved some people and not others says for God so loved the world that he gave gave his only son whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. They knew that God's mission was for the world not just for the church which not just for the Salvation Army not just the Christians and that Jesus lived and died for the world. Not just for you you and for me. How did they know that? Because Jesus Christ said that throughout his ministry on this evening we're we're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mystery his mission and ministry. I was more difficult to saying. I thought I'll try that again this evening. We're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mission and Ministry Luke Chapter Four if you want to turn to do it in your Bibles Luke four verses fourteen to thirty and that's on page ten thirty one of our call bibles and if you remember to bring your copy of Grapevine and you'll you'll find some notes on the page to help you as we read these words together.

Sometimes I think that salvation chaumet coal not this one of course their responses to retreat from the world to hide in citadels and to await. Jesus turn and let the change go on outside. There are some Salvation Army Corps who've become fortresses against against change inside of those core. They avoid the change. That's going on in the world and so those places has become places where nothing ever changes and woe betide the officer ever turns up and says what about moving the piano or a few chairs or how about if we change the times of the meetings. What about worship Band Catherine booth one of our founders said if we ought to better the future we must disturb the president if we are to better the future we must disturb the present and you know what she was only following God God and all of that because the Bible makes it clear that God wants change in Philippians chapter one verse six? Paul says I'm sure if this this that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of. Jesus Christ I want. That sounds like change good work. That's big begun in us. But that will keep changing and transforming US until it's completed on the day of Jesus Christ and inefficient chapter one verse nine to ten. Paul says is the golden makes known to us the mystery of his will according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of all time to unite all things things in him things in heaven and things on earth in other words the whole universe is moving towards being united in Christ all things in heaven and all things asks on earth that's why the world is always changing. God wants change in our lives. He wants changing our core and he wants to change in the world around us but for that he needs ever-growing ever-changing disciples. You are God's change agents then in the world around us. We're going to think about that in the context of our passage this evening from Luke Chapter Ten Verses Twenty five to thirty seven is a very well known. Passage is the story of the Good Samaritan but I think it has something to say to us about the change that God wants in ourselves. Let's listen to these words.

"To understand the full revelation of God that he has shown to us otherwise what happens is we define I find God in our own image and we try to put him in a box so the first thing is we need to be renewed in the spirit of our minds uh-huh so that we are right thinking about God's then Paul moves onto lots of other practical ways in which we can live out our holiness and model will Jesus life for highly liquid. He says we can speak. Truthfully we can deal with reality as it really is and we can assume responsibility when things go wrong rather than trying to pass the buck or sweep it under the carpet and pretend it didn't really happen. Paul says we can control our anger. We can show that. We don't use anger in a simple way. which is show that when we are angry? It's a constructive destructive anger rather than a destructive and Paul says we can refuse to hold a grudge. We can let go of an unforgiving spirits we can decide not to descend into petty passive aggressiveness grudges. VEGGIES and bitterness are one of the best ways the devil has for causing splits and divisions in his people one of the best weapons Z. has grudges and bitterness. They separate people from each other either forcing individuals from the core or separating core into cliques factions. Paul says give no opportunity to the devil. Let's very practical concrete holiness us. Just don't give the devil foothold. Paul says we can accept our responsibility in life and worked to supply our practical needs when we have more than enough for practical nieves. Then we can choose to share with others and if we're able all to work and to be productive we can share with those who are unable to work and be productive. Says we can speak only to to build others up rather than slandering people or Gossiping about them ridiculing them or insulting them we can choose to encourage people hole in stead. We all need encourages. Don't we I thank God for the encourages. In my life to you know this morning I came off the platinum platform and I came off the platform and throw string a sentence together properly this morning. Apparently I even said to you at the end of the meeting the Benediction for tonight is we were still to learn moaning and yet they're still people can encourage me after the meetings. I thank you for doing that. We all need encourages. Conversations can be influenced by the needs of those that we are speaking to so that we can say what they need to hear in order to build them up and onto encourage them so poor concludes in verses thirty one thirty two that all bitterness wrath and anger and clamor and slander. Be Put away from you along with all malice. Be Kind to one another tenderhearted forgiving one. Another as Gordon. Christ forgave you. This is not high. Saluting theological fickle language. This is concrete practical holiness concrete practical things that we can put into practice day by day through the power of the Charlie spirits. Why because Jesus wants salvation is he wants us as basingstoke corn he wants to salvation? Army May live out its call to radical counter cultural obedience. You only have to look through this list to see how counter culturally is. It's different from the way the world works totally the opposite to the way the world works. Paul calls us to live out our salvation. ISM by living out a changed life Christian living requires us to continually tenuously put off our old self and continually put on new life. Just as many of us take off and put on a uniform said there are kind of symbol of that taking off our old life and putting new lives but sadly over the years. Maybe I've even been one of them on occasions too many salvation. This limit their discipleship. They limit their holy living. They limit their holiness to what they do when they put their uniforms on on Sunday. They live what looks like a holy life in their salvation. EST World when they're at the core or doing call ministry wherever that happens to be but look very different when you go out into the secular world and observe them there in the world where they spend most of their time in the salvation is worlds they can be seen proudly wearing their prestige and cleaned uniforms. Worshiping Learning Bain Disciples enjoying fellowship with fellow salvation this welcoming newcomers into the core and using their spiritual Gifts but when out in the secular world they change the guided by different families. They follow the world's values even though those world values often clash with the values of the Kingdom of God consumerism. Tempts them to buy more things thinks. Because that's just the way that things are in the real world the tempted to earn money in a fraudulent way or morally questionable way. Because that's just the world works. It's what everyone does in the world. I find themselves elves in conversations where other people are insulted or demeaned and they failed to challenge those in the conversation and to offer compassion respect. Instead Jesus calls us all of us to put off our self centered. Mines and I'll self-centered false Selves and to put on his self emptying mind put on our new selves. And he calls us to do that. What Day by day and to do it out there as well as in here? He calls us to put on his character and to put on his righteousness justness. He wants us to live lives. That are marked by his truth and his love. It's counter cultural. It's radical it's radical. It's holy shakes us out of any sense of complacency and it's a full-time calling a part time job but it's also concrete and practical all these things in the list that Paul this in seventeen thirty two and if Asians chapter for all practical things we could do. Tomorrow I'm many of us will because it's concrete and practical. It's not beyond around our capability. Something we are capable of doing in the power of the Holy Spirit. So let's ask ourselves taking. What is it that we're willing to risk to live out the values of the Kingdom of God wherever we find ourselves tomorrow? What is it that we're willing to risk to live out the values of the Kingdom of God wherever we find ourselves tomorrow? We're we live a tame drawl dry dull insipid lukewarm holiness.

Seventeen seventeen to thirty two and if you picked up a set of message notes when you came in then they will help you as we go through this passage together. I want to start with a nice big question. What is the Salvation Army? What is the Salvation Army? Why does the Salvation Army exist? What's its purpose? I also that because sometimes I look at the salvation particularly in the Western world. and I wonder if we're not in a crisis of identity that we don't know what the Salvation Army's that we're not quite clear on in ways that perhaps we used used to in our very early days we were most definitely a radical Christian movement that called people to Jesus radical way of living and just think about our early days. We actually had the brass neck. Do use up phrase down here next year. That's good. We have the brass neck back to go to the poorest places of Victorian London to go to the gutters to go to those Victorian slums and we have to brass neck to say eight to those people the people who are marginalized and on the fringes of our society you can be saved and you can live a radical holy me life you can live a life of radical discipleship unholy living but when I look could our recent history in Western world. I wonder if we're prepared just to settle for complacency when we we compare ourselves to our early forefathers have we just settled for complacency for the last forty or so years we seem to have been content in just to become another institutionalized church. We've we've worked hard to become just another denomination and we've become enlarged pie are very well loved and well supported charity whenever I go out and collect or stand collecting people. Paul always say we love the Salvation Army always prepared to give to the Salvation Army. Sometimes it looks as though we're barely Christian Social Services Agency ED prepared to deliver a very high level of professional social service help. But sometimes when we've done that we've downplayed our faith and we've been unwilling to help those that we've helped seek help with their spiritual journey as well as with their physical and emotional needs. What's I wonder sometimes if we simply expected out decline the you know the way the trajectory that we're on particularly in the the Western world is just the way that is that we content just to Peter out until we simply cease to exist? Maybe we think think. Limited lifespan is simply inevitable as far as the Salvation Army's consent. Well I believe that. That's not our only option. How about you? I believe. That's not our only option. Jesus is still calling the Salvation Army to be credible followers Of his where the Salvation Army has become dry and dull. I still believe that those dry bones can live where we become lukewarm. I believe in the Holy Spirit can ignite US and direct us once more where there are salvation in this core and elsewhere who's holiness is dying for lack of oxygen. I believe the Holy Spirit can breathe new life into them do. Do you believe that there is still time for the Salvation Army and for Beijing. Cortin live out. Its calling as a vital movement kind of compassionate APP committed followers of Jesus and already see around me I see compassionate followers and committed followers of Jesus business living out their lives are salvation is around me all the time.

"Let's pray together Lord. We have just stunned that we love you that we want to be in relationship with view that we want to be in relationship. We also as we open your word this evening that you will help us to be in ever closer relationship with you. Help us to live like you help us to display your likeness to those around us because we abide in you because of our close relationship with you well in your name and so the passage. We're looking at this evening. Is John Twenty one John. Chapter Twenty One verses fifteen to twenty five if you picked up one of our bibles is on the way in. And that's on page one zero nine zero and if you picked up some message notes on the way and then you can follow those as we look at this passage together the is a holiness movement. One of the great themes of love salvation. EST Life is holiness and living that holiness living that holy life to full measure. But do you ever get the impression impression that holiness holy living is all about living by the rules. You get ever feel that way some vacation as you're allowed to say yes or no sometimes thank you Mike. Can you remember some of the rules that we followed in days gone by. I can remember the days when the rule was that we were expected to go to every meeting on Sunday and in my situation that meant to who Sunday schools to open meetings three meetings and the only time that we weren't allowed to go to those meetings we'll when we were on holiday and then we were expected to go to the Salvation Army somewhere else. That was one of the rules that we followed. Do you remember the rule that said that. If you were involved in core activities then they came first before everything else. Lots of young people throughout the years probably still today today have that conflict between the activities that they're involved in the salvation army and then other activities that take place in school and other places. We had a rule about having family devotions every day around the table and saying up prayers before we went to bed. Some of US had rules that we didn't watch. TV TV on a Sunday ends up. If you follow that rule yes a few of you. Some people never went to the cinema or went to watch live sport. Some wouldn't go dancing. Obviously those suits their mini skirts in uniform. Probably not such a problem. I've lived with rules over the air. About what color socks have to wear uniform in fact I still have those rules today as an officer. I'm what kind of shoes were allowed to wear fien in Salvation Army music sections where there were rules about what color tights the ladies wore usually. Just the ladies and what type of back act carried and all those sorts of things and even today the soldiers covenant that we sign when become when we become Salvation Army soldiers. We sometimes are tempted to see as a set of rules to keep. But here's what I see. In Jesus's life he preached to ordinary people who had enough trouble making ends meet. They didn't have enough time or energy to pursue the laws of holy living that was demanded by their Jewish religion. Many in the crowds follow. Jesus were crippled and disabled. Some of them had lifestyles which were well somewhat less than wholly and you think it's strange how Jesus spent so how much time with the Publicans on the tax collectors and the prostitutes the people that Jesus spent time with we're rule breakers not rule keepers. And yet somehow they were the ones in which Jesus placed the most hope he came saying the Kingdom of God for such as them. The Kingdom of God was open to those who believe in Jesus but closed to those who placed their confidence and security in keeping the religious rules. Now before you start writing your emails and your letters to the divisional commander. Let's just say that I'm preaching salvation. Heresy I'm not suggesting that living out the Christian life in a dedicated and disciplined way isn't good for us because after all the Publicans and the tax and the prostitutes and everybody else Jesus met had transformed lives because they met Jesus us their lives were different after they met. Jesus just think about Jesus story of the Prodigal Son who was forgiven so that he could start all living like the child of God that he wants all the adulterous woman. He was forgiven not so that she could continue in her adultery but so that she he could live a totally new and different life. Perhaps the greatest example of this transformation is poor the chief of sinners as he called himself. Alf was justified by God's grace so that he wouldn't fall back into the sin of of spiritual legalism that he'd indulged in until Jesus on that. Damascus wrote it is a real temptation to reduce the holy living to a set of rules after all an army stopped rules. Doesn't it but you know all of those rules off sacred. Let me just take one. There are times when we hold up uniform wearing as a sacred rule so just should wear it on if one soldier turns up without on will then actually means there's something wrong with them and something wrong with their spiritual temperature except that when you think about it. There are officers and than soldiers who've used the uniform distraction from their unhealthy lifestyle. Suddenly the rule doesn't make much sense. I'm sure you haven't but I've met uniform. Salvation exists with hearts of stone. Doesn't matter about the uniform they wear then and I have to confess for myself. There have been times when I've been guilty of following all the rules of being a good salvation. s whatever that means whilst being aware that my relationship with God was totally less than ideal so hardly in a season about uniform. Although women proudly on holy living is not about the rules that we is easier to live holy life if we have some discipline that makes exit concrete. Only living isn't about wearing ourselves into the ground three service in order to prove how good we all to God into other people people will is a call to be fruitful so we have to ask ourselves in all of this then. What is holiness? What does it mean to live the holy life to live a life of holiness? I believe this passage from John. Twenty onto one can help us and listen to fill now.

Thank you have a look at those versus in your Bible if you have it be great if you did. have it. Be Good if we were looking at. God's Word together have look those verses. What do they look like doc? I glance they might look like a set of rules. There's a whole list of things that you shouldn't do and then a whole list of things that you should do instead but it's not really a set of rules because has the key comes in the two versus before the passage that we started reading versus twenty three and twenty four visions chapter four. You'll find those in your message. Notes Paul says put off your old self which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful rule desires and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds. The key to this passage is that believers arte put put off the old self that to strip away the old self so that God can give them their new self. We go from the old self to the new self when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit. That's really what we talk about. That's what we really signify on symbolize. His when we put on our Salvation Army Uniform House ovation. I'm a uniform is useful in lots of ways but the biggest thing is that they they are a symbol of the fact that we've taken off our old lives we've stripped off our old lives and we have put on our new life baptized by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit kills off our old self and raises us us with Christ into the new life when we are baptized by the Holy Spirit we are reborn by the Holy Spirit Parrot. We renounce the forces of darkness and we embrace the Kingdom of light the habits of our old self no longer have control over us because we've stripped off and we've put on our new life. The Holy Spirit empowers us to resist the evil powers. How is of the world and gives us the motivation to put our whole trust in Jesus Grace and love? So can you see now that this passage is not a set of rules to follow things that you shouldn't do and things that you should do. It's not like the cub scouts or the brownies where we get a merit badge whenever we take one of these off. I'm not I'm not talking any me falsehoods anymore. Tick speaking truth with my neighbor tick. I'm not angry angry. I don't let the sun go down on my anger. Take haven't given an opportunity to the devil take. It's not that kind. Aww List living the holy life is not like collecting merit badges as a as a scout or Brownie and by the way since we're in a salvation army meeting can I just say the soldiers covenant is just the same the soldiers covenant is not a titlist list of rules to follow things to do when things not today and I say that because in my interactions with salvation is here in this core and elsewhere in the salvation army world. It seems that sometimes. That's what we reduce the soldiers covenant to another set of rules and regulations to follow. It isn't both this passage in a Fijian's and our soldiers covenant marks of the new life given to us when we're baptized by honey spirit when we take off our old selves and we put on new selves. God puts this way baptized by the Holy Spirit. Then this passage and our soldiers covenant is what our lives begin to look like. We're a new creation if we're a new creation than we cannot go back back to being our old self. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not some kind of make ova paper over the cracks and hope that things will last. It's replacing one old self with a completely new self. The old all self is cast away and we focus on new life instead of turning back to the ways of death so so Paul says in this passage that when God gives us new life if we told lies in our old self the now we tell the truth if we had a tendency to be angry in our old life well then now we seek the peace of God's not as a take list to put because that's a mark of the new life that God has given us if we're a thief than we stop stealing and we look at ways of sharing doing what we have with those around some working honestly with our hands if our talk is unwholesome in our old self than when we take that often we strip off allow God to put new life into us then we start encouraging people and so on. This is what this passage is about. It's not list. It's the way life begins to look when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit and God gives us. He's new life. So what's our part in this hour. These verse one of Chapter Five Life if you want to memorize some scripture this week then this might be the verse to memorize. It's only one two three four five six seven eight words long. That's quite good for memorization. I think Paul says therefore be imitators of God as beloved children. That's our part therefore be imitators of gold is beloved children say with May therefore be imitators of God as beloved children therefore be imitators of God as beloved children like the small child in our video learns the way of life by imitating his parent so we learn Holy Life by imitating being got and we imitate God by simply following his example in his son. Jesus Christ on emulating his character in our lives. How many times have we send in the words of John Gallons down there in your message notes? I'm from southern number. Three hundred twenty eight to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me in every thought and cree undead. This is my aim my creed to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me his spirit helping me lie a came. I'll be. I'm afraid to sermon isn't rocket signs. Just take those middle lines if each and every one of us really really allowed going to grow in us that we could say in every thought and this is my aim mike create then we would be like Jesus that's just logic his net. It's not rocket science. It's logic in every thought. Indeed this is my a Mike creed to be like. Jesus if that was really what we wanted to do then we would be like Jesus. A disciple of Jesus longs to live the holy life. He or she is a student fully committed to imitating tasting their teacher. We read about Jesus in the Bible. Not Justin Oh more about him but in order to imitate him. I'm because of our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the power given to us by the Holy Spirit we become godly characteristics An obedient cycles. In the way relief later we read about Jesus unlearn his example. But we also read each other. Have you noticed that we also so read each other you see. It's not enough to read about Jesus in the Bible and seek to put and then seek to put his example into practice because if we think about the analogy of the young child.

"If you'd like to turn to the evening's main passage we're looking at a Fijian's chapter four Fijian's chapter four starting at Verse Twenty Five and we're going into chapter five in verse two if you're using one of our bibles on page eleven. Seventy six eleven seventy six fees in chapter four verses twenty five to trump to five I to pray together. Jesus we come together this evening as a people who declare corporately and individually you load on. We declare our willingness US and wish and desire to live a harley life. We ask that through through the words that you will speak to us this evening. You will help us to live that hardy life better day by day so that we become more and more like you and we all sees praising your name so over the last few few weeks when I've been here we've been thinking I've said about this. This early Christian Dogma this early Christian creed this early Christian expression of faith. Jesus is Lord. And we've been thinking about what that means when Christians and salvation EST say Jesus this is Lord. What we reminded ourselves in? The past few weeks is that there isn't just a belief we don't just say we believe that Jesus is Lord but that in in saying Jesus is Lord that lives that brings us to a particular way of life that our lives say. Jesus is Lord and the way that we live day by day it means a life of obedience and surrender to him a holy life a life of holiness sinus and so our Salvation Army's tenth article of faith or doctrines. If you look at a message notes if you picked up on the way this evening say we believe that. It the privilege of all believers to be holy sanctified and their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus as Christ what does that doctrine. Meanwhile does that article of faith mean well not is first of all that it says that it is the privilege of all believers leave us not of some believers but all believers and so all believers are called to be holy a sanctified and that their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus Christ it says it's a privilege privilege but it's not privileged in the sense of. We often say society that there are some privileged people who are rich and have been given everything in life and then there are some that are not privileged when we talk about privilege in this article of faith we mean but it is a free the an undeserved gift from God. That's what it means to be a privilege. So we don't mean that there are some holy Christians and some unholy Christian questions. You don't believe in unholy Christians. Do you know if you're a Christian. Then it is the privilege of all believers of Air Free Christian to be holy to live the holy life. It's clear through his teaching and three poles else teaching as well. Look this evening that Jesus really intends to make every believer a radical follower that we should be his holy people holy living was always the plan. It wasn't just about getting people saved wasn't just about Out Jesus dying on the Cross to save us but that we should live a holy life afterwards so we need to know if that was always a plan what is is it. What is hardly living? Well it's to be like got holy. Living is to be like God now. I could leave the sermon here and we can say yes. We all agree with that and that would be fun. We could all go home. I'm not going to living a holy life means to be like God to imitate Gods. Now have you ever noticed how children imitate adults. Yes those of your parents will have noticed how children imitate adults. It's a way of learning in fact. Probably the main way that they learn just as a reminder have a look at a screen three.

This morning's main Bible reading is one samuel chapter up to seventeen one samuel chapter seventeen. We're using selected verses from that chapter and if you're using one of our bibles it's on page two hundred and eighty-eight page two eight eight. Let's just pray together. Father we thank you for the a for the promises and for the truth that we have just done the you do indeed turn our weaknesses into your opportunities not by faith. The things that we you think are impossible can be can be made possible in your power. We also continue to encourage us with these words as we look at this a story from your web to get into this morning all men. Have you ever heard anybody say we can't do that. It's health and safety. Anybody heard that sounds like most of you have. We can't do that. It's health and safety. Health and safety over. The years has got a very bad reputation because we think that it stops us doing things because that's what we're told. Sometimes you can't do not because it's health and safety but actually that's not right. It frustrates me when I hear people say that. It frustrates gail even more because she's health and safety professional. I'm so she doesn't want to hear that people think well we can't do those things. Because of health and safety thousands and and thousands of people around the world today are climbing up onto very very toll structures and throwing them off throwing themselves off attached. Only only bein elastic band. It's cold bungee jumping. My view is that if you can take yourself tool structure not that I would we do this but if you want to take yourself a tall structure and throw yourself off attached only by elastic band. Then they're probably not many things that we can't do because of health and safety actually when health and so safety is done right and when risk assessments which are kind of a major part. Aw Health and safety are done right then there are. There are not many things that we cannot do because what the risk is excellent does is to assess the risk risk around whatever you want to do and then seeks to take steps to minimize the risk in that situation so no doubt those people you organize for people to be able to jump off a very tall structures attached by an elastic band have pages and pages of risk assessments. But they've tried to minimize the risk to life when somebody goes bungee jumping so if you think about as anybody gone bungee jumping I'm from here now. That's a very intelligent you not to do that. So that's something a little bit closer to home. If you take food safety for example there were lots of regulations of lots of health and safety food safety regulations that you need to comply with when you are giving food to members of the public so yesterday afternoon tea would have had lots of health and safety around it. So and pigs are stuff that we've become useful and we've become used to now so for example one of the steps that you might take a risk assessment asmant when you're thinking about giving food to members of the public is that you don't allow kitchen staff to handle food when they're sick you send them home. We'll tell them not to come. I mean that's one of the steps that you take identified by Risk Assessment to ensure that food is given safely to members of the public or you might one of the other things is to ensure that food gets to the right temperature so any bacteria in the food is killed off. So that's what really happens with. Risk Assessments and health and safety. Fifty doesn't stop us doing many things well this morning. We're looking at a story that I suspect that most of us have heard since childhood and actually this is one of those stories if health and safety ever got hold of it if they're being health and safety officers in the time that story took place then it probably wouldn't have taken place that have said no way because here. We have the story of a bully a giant of a man. A man with weapons opens to back up his bravado and he takes on an innocent young shepherd with nothing more than a sling and some stones. Bill Arnold the author says it's The story of sling stones versus Sword Spear and Javelin of defiant military aggression versus purity not in faith of right versus might of tall versus short and of youth versus maturity. This account has brought faith faith to millions over the centuries precisely because here purity and writes a victorious over might unlike so many of our own experiences not says maybe but health and safety would have said. There's no way you're doing this. Fortunately they he went around and so we still have the account and bibles and Kathy is GonNa come and read these verses tourists from one Samuel Chapter Seventeen sized avid that forces all the settled. Some pitched come thank they pitched com. P-ADEF is dumb. In between soccer and Ezekiel sold on the Israelites. Assembled and camped in the Valley Taylor and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites. Another with the valley between between them. A champion named Goliath. who was from Gaffe came out of Philistine camp? He was over nine feet tall he.

Lebron's javelin was slung on his back his special oft was like a waivers Rod. And it's on point point weighed six hundred through shekels his shield bearer went ahead of him. Goliath students shouted to the ranks of Israel. Why do you come out and line up for battle? I am not a Philistine. And all you not the servants of saw choose a man and have him come down to me. If he's able to fight and kill me we will become your subjects. But if I overcome him and kill him you will become as subjects and serve us then. The Philistine said this day I defy the ranks of Israel. Give me a man and let us fight each other on hearing the Philistines would soul and all the Israelites. Lights were dismayed and terrified verse. Nineteen they always soul nor the men of Israel in the Valley of are fighting against the Philistines early in the morning. David left the flock with a shepherd loaded up and set out as Jesse had directed he reached reached. The camp as the army was going out to its battle positions shouting the war cry Israel and the Philistines were drawing up their lines facing facing each other. David Leftists things with the caper of keeper of supplies ran to the battle lines and greeted his brothers as ass. He was talking with them. Goliath the Philistine champion from Gaffe stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance and David heard predict best left to David said to Seoul. Let no-one loose heart lose heart. On Account Count this Philistine your servant will go and fight him Saul replied. You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him Euronews. You're on your boy. And he has a fighting man from his youth the David said to Saul your servant has been keeping his father sheep when Alon or bad came carried off a sheep from the flock. I went out. went out out after it struck it and rescue the sheep from its mouth when it turned on me. I seized it by its hair struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bare this uncircumcised circumcised. Philistine will be like thin. Because he has defied the armies of the Living God the Lord Order delivered me from the poor of the lion and the poor of the bear will deliver may from the hand of this Philistine. So said today David Go. Oh and the Lord be with you then sold dress David. In his own TUNIC. He puts a coat of armor on him and Lebron's helmet on his head judge. David fastened his sword over the TUNIC and tried walking around. Because he wasn't used to them. I cannot go in as he said to soul because I'm not used to them so he took them off then he took his staff in his hand chose five smooth stones from the Stream. Same put them in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and with his sling in his hand he approached the Philistine. Meanwhile the Philistine with his shield Barrow Front of him kept coming closer to David. He Look David over and saw that he was only boy. Roddy and Hanson and he. He despised him. He said today David. Am I a dog that you come at me. Mistakes and the Philistine curse David by his gods come here he said and I'll give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field David to the Philistine. You come against me with soden spear spear and Javelin but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty God of the armies of Israel whom you have defied this day the Lord will hand you over to me and I'll strike you down and cut off your head today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air the base of the earth and the whole world will know that there is a god in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord Saves For Battle is the Lord's and he will give all of you into our hands as the Philistine moved closer to attack him. David ran quickly towards awards the battle line to meet him reaching in his bag and taking out a stone he sung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead the stone sunk into his forehead and he fell face down on the ground..

We can actually drive them away from the Lord if we're not careful MOHANDAS. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nationalist movement against British rule and was considered the father of his country and those of you who know about Gandhi will know he's internationally esteemed for his doctrine of non violence to achieve political and social progress. What you might not know is that in? His Autobiography Autobiography Bertha. Gandhi says that in his student days he was truly interested in the Bible and in the Christian message he was deeply touched by reading the gospels. Honey seriously considered becoming a Christian convert because Christianity seemed to offer the real solution to the caste system which was dividing the people of India. Yeah and so one Sunday he actually went to a nearby church to attend one of the services and he decided to seek out the minister and to ask for instruction the way of Salvation and enlightenment on other doctrines but when he entered the sanctuary of the church the ashes refused to give him a seat and suggested that he go and worship with his own. People left that church and never came back. If Christians have cost differences also Gandhi said to himself. I might as well remain a Hindu if we allow the godly lives that God works in us To fuel our pride and arrogance than we will drive people away from the Lord or as.

"Thank you any. So shall we say. Shall we get the controversy out of the way I do notice. There's a controversy in this passage. Anybody faith without deeds yes so whole says actually. It's mother works that save you. It's not the deeds that save you. It's only faith that saves you. And that's what we follow as Protestant Evangelical Christian. So if you look at the first burst in your outline Romans Three Twenty eight Paul says for we maintain that a person is justified by faith. Apart from the works of the the law. In other words you'll save by faith not by works in Galatian strapped to to sixteen. That's the next verse in your outline. Paul says yet. We know that a person is justified. Fide not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ and we have come to believe in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by doing the works of the law because no one will be justified by the works of the law. So did Paul and James Contradict each other. Well let's have a look at the context first of all. They were confronting different issues. So Paul in his letters was confronting false teachers. Those false most teachers would take teaching networks in particular things like being circumcised and observing Jewish ceremonial laws. They were all necessary for salvation vice. You couldn't be saved. You couldn't belong to God unless you went through those ceremonial laws. James is is arguing. Something different he's arguing with those who believe that simply agreeing with the Gospel in other words. Having a kind of intellectual faith in their minds was enough to obtain salvation. There's also a difference in the timeframe of the believer's faith journey. Paul is talking about salvation -ation right at the beginning of the Christian journey and he's saying no one at this point at the beginning of the Christian journey no one can ever earn God's forgiveness and salvation. It's a gift. We were thinking about not over Easter when we saw Vatian is gift. It's a gift of grace and we obtain Tena through faith not through works. All we can do is to accepted James Speaking to Christians who are further along that journey mature Christian believers those who already accepted that gift of forgiveness and salvation and he is saying in essence for well them they must live a new life if through faith they have obtained salvation and the gift of forgiveness and salvation. Then it must look like a different different life as mature believers. James isn't saying that works. Have to be added did to faith but that genuine faith includes works. So that's a controversy out of the way now we can focus on what James wants to say to us this evening. Kiva is not verse. Seventeen James says so with faith if it does not lead to action it is in itself lifeless thing faith if it does not lead to action is in itself a lifeless thing now among many Christians today they say. Do you know the days have gone now for preaching. That's black and white. We need it to be a little bit more gray. We needed to be a little bit more nuanced well. James clearly didn't believe in that because we have this stark warning here. It's black and white. It simply believing in God is not enough. Can't get much more black and white and that Kenny simply believing in God is not enough conviction and intellectual belief kind of a belief in our minds that refuses to obey Christ comes is lifeless date again. There's this quite black and white isn't it isn't it. You're either alive or dead. Sometimes we might feel between but honestly either alive over it. How do we know that our faith is the real thing? How do we know that our faith is alive and not dead because it does what it says on? The Tin Action is the fruit of living faith. If we don't respond to others needs if we don't respond to those social issues that we thought about a few minutes ago then whatever faith eighth we possess is dead black and white. It's dead just in case we don't get not James. Has This hypothetical example for us to go through in verses fifteen to sixteen suppose brother or sister is in ranks with not enough food. For the day I'm unwanted says well good luck to you keep yourselves warm and have plenty to eat but does nothing to supply their bodily needs. What is the good of that? And what are we all say to dot. It's no good a toll. That's quite straightforward. Isn't it really. James Raises is hypothetical socialist. You have his day and I'm sure that there were people who are actually in that kind of situation and simply asks what would we do. What would we do? Would we really see someone in rags and with no food for the day and simply say well good luck to you keep yourself warm and have plenty to eat. Well if so then our faith is nothing but empty words because those words mean nothing. It's certify inadequate isn't it to say to someone on him not situation. Well Good luck to you. Keep yourself warm and I hope you're okay. It doesn't work because nothing changes now. We might actually actually be really sincere. And those words that we say it's not that we dismiss them and say we're good luck to you. We might actually mean keep yourself look after yourself goes well words might be well many but nothing altars in the end. I'm that's why James says our faith is date because nothing changes something more than simply talk is required if however we see see someone in ranks and with no food for the day and our faith stirs Stark Shen if we find them some warm clothes to wear or we find them shelter or something thing warm and comforting tweet actions. Confirm that our faith is alive. It's the real thing because it's doing. What exactly what it says on the tin gene our faith changes the situation? I'm that's what shows that our faith is alive. Now this is in the Salvation Army's DNA. I'm preaching to the converted tonight. Salvation is believe this. Don't worry yes good about twenty of you. That's pretty good. William Booth said you cannot warm. The heart of hearts people with God's love if they have an empty stomach uncalled feet. He got it. He got those words from James. He realized that real faith real faith makes a real difference in human life and it was his belief and good works as the fruit of faith that led us to set up homeless hostels soup kitchens match factories freeze job clubs all sorts of different things many of which still going on today need oriented evangelism. Him as the phrase goes is still one of the strengths of the army. Today God continues to call us to share God's love in ways that are relevant to the needs of those around us we are called as the Salvation Army. We cold basingstoke core. We are cold. As individuals individuals salvation exists to meet the relational material emotional and spiritual needs of those op community. Who Most need it so the question tonight? It's quite easy isn't it. Is our faith the real thing does our faith say exactly what it does exactly what it says on. How are we using our spiritual gifts? Our energy we are experiencing our contacts and a time on material goods to meet the felt needs of the people of basingstoke or do we have to admit admit to ourselves that actually we quite content to wish them well and hope they find the help that they need so if we want our call to grow then it's the job of every believer here to ensure that their faith does what it says on the team. There are people in the world out there who need you they need me May need Christ. Will you ensure that yours is a fighting faith.

"Joining us tonight is author and US or me that turn Mike Joseph line Michael is debut in his new book series for tweens and themes borrowing scenes from his own military upbringing Michael cross the adventures escapades of the McMasters children in brat and the kids of warriors. Michael is proud to say that he is a military brat. His father was a US army Colonel and his mom was the general in charge of their family lions moved nine times and attended eleven different schools more overseas than in the United States. And then he went on to join the US army initially as Lieutenant and then captain later he developed and taught a course at UCLA UCLA on the nine principles of war and became a serial tech entrepreneur today, why his wife and two dogs live in the Chicago area frequently visited by their seven children and their families. Welcome to the show. Michael. Well, thank you for having me on. I really appreciate it. Well, we're looking forward to chatting with you this evening. So can you tell us we already know from intro that you live in the Chicago area. Is that where calling in from the thing? Well, the seasoning. Yes. If you cut me last night, I'd have been in Paris but class, and so, Yup. On about fifteen minutes from downtown Chicago right now. Okay. Terrorists. Wow. Exciting. Burials love it. Do you deal with any travel tiredness or anything like that coming back from a trip like that? You know, like if you're a brat, and you've been so many places so many times, I have this theory. You set your watch to whatever it is where you are. Right, then and you say to your body. This is what time it is. And and most of the time it works for me. Okay. Well, that is that's good to know if I ever do some traveling like that, I will definitely keep that in mind. So I was reading through your author page on your website was absolutely fascinated by all the different places that you've lived and the things that you got to do, and I'm curious living in all those different places around the country and around the world did you ever develop or feel as sense of home in any of those locations flipped? So I guess what I'd say is. You know, this is something that all military brats. And they have in common. You know, this this issue of or sense of not having a hometown. And you're you're kinda from everywhere, but from nowhere and people ask where you're from and you start listing things in their eyes start rolling on. And so as a hometown, I mean, I half the time I say to people, you know, I'm from the United States army, and and and that's my hometown. But like saying I was in Paris yesterday. I think for me and you set by by seeing my bio I spent more time out of the country than I did in the country. And so when I go back to Europe now. Now, it it's seems kind of like more like the place of my childhood, and then than say any specific place in the in the United States, and I guess if I relate to anything at as as kind of number one it would be early on France. And I guess that's probably 'cause I was there from when I was ten until I was fourteen and so that's kind of a point in time for you. But I also my father that you're Colonel when I got there said to me you've you've had just about enough of American schools. You are about to be taught you're going to a French school, and you're going to be taught by the Jesuits. And so that's what I did for the next four years, and I've always been a data. Has brat. But at that point I had to be adaptive enough to become a French kit. And. I have to say it was amazing. It was a little bit like Harry Potter Hogwarts. But but I had in the end I had a fabulous time..
