  • BEFORE SHE SAID WELCOME,

  • "CAN YOU DO THAT?"
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:06.290
  • BY THE WAY IF YOU WATCH US

  • AND SOME OF YOU ARE
  • 00:01:11.160 --> 00:01:12.170
  • VERY UNHAPPY WHEN SHE
  • 00:01:12.170 --> 00:01:13.170
  • IS MISSING BECAUSE YOU ONLY
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:14.220
  • WATCH BECAUSE SHE'S HERE.

  • JAMES, SHUT UP AND
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:18.200
  • LET BETTY SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:20.010
  • AND YOU WATCH US, IS SHE
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:21.010
  • GOING TO SAY SOMETHING?
  • 00:01:21.010 --> 00:01:22.120
  • AND SHE SAYS, "I DON'T
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:23.130
  • WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:24.120
  • Y'ALL TALK."
  • 00:01:24.120 --> 00:01:25.260

  • BECAUSE SHE SURE LOOKS
  • 00:01:32.020 --> 00:01:33.040
  • BEAUTIFUL NOW.

  • ARE Y'ALL GLAD BETTY'S BACK,
  • 00:01:35.080 --> 00:01:36.140
  • ALL OF YOU IN THE AUDIENCE?
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:38.120
  • I'M REALLY GLAD SHE'S HERE.
  • 00:01:38.120 --> 00:01:40.170
  • AND I KNOW YOU'LL KEEP
  • 00:01:40.170 --> 00:01:41.220
  • WATCHING BECAUSE OF IT.
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:42.240
  • ONE OF OUR BEST FRIENDS
  • 00:01:42.240 --> 00:01:43.250
  • IS HERE, DAVID BARTON,
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:44.280
  • WALLBUILDERS.
  • 00:01:44.280 --> 00:01:46.000
  • I'M TELLING YOU --
  • 00:01:46.000 --> 00:01:47.020
  • YOU SAY OKAY, DID THEY SAY
  • 00:01:47.020 --> 00:01:48.030
  • SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:49.040
  • BUILDING A WALL?
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:50.070
  • WELL, NEHEMIAH
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:51.090
  • CERTAINLY THOUGHT SO.
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.100
  • GOD CERTAINLY THOUGHT SO
  • 00:01:52.100 --> 00:01:53.110
  • -- PROTECTION.
  • 00:01:53.110 --> 00:01:54.160
  • I THINK IT IS PURE FOOLISHNESS
  • 00:01:54.160 --> 00:01:55.180
  • NOT TO WANT TO PROTECT PEOPLE.
  • 00:01:55.180 --> 00:01:58.020
  • THIS MAN IS A GIFT FROM GOD,
  • 00:01:58.020 --> 00:02:00.170
  • DAVID BARTON.
  • 00:02:00.170 --> 00:02:02.030
  • I THINK THAT HE IS A TREASURE
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:03.080
  • FROM GOD WHO HAS HELPED US
  • 00:02:03.080 --> 00:02:04.230
  • RECOGNIZE THE GREAT TREASURES
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.220
  • THAT GOD GAVE US
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:08.050
  • THROUGH YIELDED INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:02:08.050 --> 00:02:10.100
  • WHO WERE FAR FROM PERFECT
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:12.100
  • BUT THEY DISCOVERED GOD'S WILL
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:13.230
  • FOR THE MOMENT
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.100
  • TO BLESS ALL OF US.
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.270
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:17.280
  • HE UNDERSTANDS VERY WELL
  • 00:02:17.280 --> 00:02:19.000
  • IS FREEDOM HAS A FOUNDATION
  • 00:02:19.000 --> 00:02:21.240
  • AND THAT FOUNDATION MUST NOT
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.060
  • BE ALLOWED TO BE CAST DOWN,
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:25.080
  • ASIDE OR BROKEN BECAUSE
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:27.000
  • WE ONLY BUILD A FUTURE
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:28.140
  • OF FREEDOM ON
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:30.070
  • A SOUND FOUNDATION.
  • 00:02:30.070 --> 00:02:31.220
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME DAVID BARTON
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:33.250
  • TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:02:33.250 --> 00:02:35.280
  • DAVID, YOU'VE BEEN HERE A LOT.
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.160
  • YOU'RE ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:39.180
  • THAT'S BEEN ON
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:40.170
  • THE ENTIRE WEEK.
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:41.270
  • WE THINK THE WORLD OF YOU.
  • 00:02:41.270 --> 00:02:43.040
  • NOW THIS BOOK, YOU WROTE
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:44.200
  • WITH ONE OF OUR FRIENDS,
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:46.090
  • JIM GARLOW.
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:47.280
  • HOW DID THE TWO OF YOU
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:48.290
  • David: JIM USED TO PASTOR
  • 00:02:50.020 --> 00:02:51.020
  • IN TEXAS AND THEN WENT
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:52.030
  • TO PASTOR IN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:02:52.030 --> 00:02:53.050
  • WHEN HE WAS HERE IN TEXAS,
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:54.080
  • HE AND I BECAME FRIENDS
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:55.120
  • AT THAT POINT IN TIME.
  • 00:02:55.120 --> 00:02:56.180
  • I'D BE OUT AT HIS CHURCH.
  • 00:02:56.180 --> 00:02:57.200
  • HERE IN THE STATE AS WELL.
  • 00:02:58.240 --> 00:03:00.070
  • AND SO WHEN WE WERE TRYING
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:01.130
  • TO GET GOD-FEARING PEOPLE
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:02.170
  • INTO OFFICE, LOCAL OFFICE
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:04.040
  • AS WELL AS STATE OFFICE,
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:05.090
  • HE WAS VERY, VERY INVOLVED
  • 00:03:05.090 --> 00:03:08.020
  • IN THAT AND HAD A VERY
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:10.060
  • CLEAR SENSE OF MORALITY
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:11.270
  • IN RIGHT AND WRONG,
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:12.280
  • A VERY BIBLICAL SENSE.
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:14.070
  • HE WAS ALWAYS VERY GOOD
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:15.130
  • AT COMMUNICATING THAT
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:16.130
  • TO PEOPLE AS WELL.
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:17.120
  • James: AND TO SAY HE IS
  • 00:03:17.120 --> 00:03:18.110
  • BRILLIANT IS ALMOST
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:19.140
  • AN UNDERSTATEMENT,
  • 00:03:19.140 --> 00:03:20.180
  • TO SAY WELL-EDUCATED
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:21.180
  • AND ABLE TO COMMUNICATE
  • 00:03:21.180 --> 00:03:22.180
  • IS ALMOST AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:23.200
  • NOW YOU HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:24.280
  • WITH JIM GARLOW CALLED
  • 00:03:24.280 --> 00:03:26.100
  • THIS PRECARIOUS MOMENT .
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.110
  • YOU WANT TO TELL ME WHAT
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:29.100
  • YOU MEAN BY THE TITLE
  • 00:03:29.100 --> 00:03:30.100
  • "PRECARIOUS"?
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:31.170
  • David: WE'RE REALLY IN
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:32.190
  • A DANGEROUS SPOT NATIONALLY
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:33.220
  • AND I SAY THAT FROM
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:34.240
  • A HISTORICAL STANDPOINT.
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:35.280
  • THERE'S A HISTORY OF AMERICA,
  • 00:03:35.280 --> 00:03:37.030
  • FOUR CENTURIES BUT THERE
  • 00:03:37.030 --> 00:03:38.080
  • IS A HISTORY OF A LOT
  • 00:03:38.080 --> 00:03:39.110
  • OF OTHER NATIONS AS WELL.
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:41.070
  • GOD'S NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS,
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:43.010
  • HE IS NO RESPECTER OF NATIONS
  • 00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:44.120
  • EXCEPT ISRAEL;
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:45.140
  • HE HAS CHOSEN THEM SPECIALLY.
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:46.280
  • BUT ANY NATION THAT WILL APPLY
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:48.050
  • THE RIGHT PRINCIPLES
  • 00:03:48.050 --> 00:03:49.050
  • WILL GET THE RIGHT RESULTS.
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:50.230
  • SO OVER THE COURSE OF HISTORY
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:51.290
  • WE CAN SEE THAT CERTAIN
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:53.090
  • THINGS ALWAYS PRODUCE
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.130
  • CERTAIN RESULTS.
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:55.170
  • IN AMERICA, I DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.080
  • WE SOMETIMES KIND OF THINK
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:03:58.220
  • OF OURSELVES AS REALLY UNIQUE
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:00.040
  • AND REALLY
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:01.080
  • IT WON'T APPLY TO US.
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:02.090
  • WELL, IT WILL.
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:03.120
  • IF YOU JUMP OFF THE EMPIRE
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:04.110
  • STATE BUILDING I DON'T CARE
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:05.100
  • WHAT YOUR PERSONAL BELIEFS
  • 00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:06.100
  • ARE, YOU WILL HIT THE GROUND
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:07.120
  • 86 FLOORS LATER --
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:08.120
  • REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:09.170
  • James: THE LAW OF GRAVITY
  • 00:04:09.170 --> 00:04:10.160
  • KICKS IN.
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:11.190
  • David: SO THERE ARE JUST
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:13.170
  • UNIVERSAL LAWS THAT GOD HAS.
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:15.120
  • AND AMERICA HAS COME TO
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:16.280
  • A REAL TIPPING POINT
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:18.150
  • ON SEVERAL OF THOSE.
  • 00:04:18.150 --> 00:04:19.200
  • SO THERE WERE SIX ISSUES
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:20.240
  • THAT WE SAID, "THIS IS
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:21.270
  • A PRECARIOUS MOMENT."
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:23.010
  • WE'RE RIGHT ON THE VERGE
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:24.020
  • OF STEPPING OFF THE CLIFF
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:25.040
  • OR GOING BACK FROM IT.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.190
  • BUT THE THING WE SAID,
  • 00:04:26.190 --> 00:04:27.220
  • AND THIS IS, I THINK,
  • 00:04:27.220 --> 00:04:28.260
  • A REAL PROBLEM WE HAVE
  • 00:04:28.260 --> 00:04:30.060
  • WITH NATIONAL MEDIA TODAY,
  • 00:04:30.060 --> 00:04:31.210
  • IS IF YOU...
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.000
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU WATCH,
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.040
  • WHETHER IT IS FOX OR MSNBC
  • 00:04:34.040 --> 00:04:36.010
  • OR CNN, WHATEVER IT IS,
  • 00:04:36.010 --> 00:04:37.160
  • WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET IS
  • 00:04:37.160 --> 00:04:38.200
  • A 24/7, 365 STEADY DOSE
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:41.020
  • OF NATIONAL NEWS.
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:42.290
  • AND AS A RESULT, YOU FEEL
  • 00:04:42.290 --> 00:04:44.180
  • FRUSTRATED BECAUSE I CAN CALL
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:47.000
  • PEOPLE AT THE WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:48.080
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:49.120
  • I CAN CALL THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:50.140
  • AND SAY, "HEY, FIX THIS!"
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:51.180
  • DOESN'T MEAN I CAN CALL
  • 00:04:51.180 --> 00:04:52.210
  • THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE
  • 00:04:52.210 --> 00:04:53.240
  • OR THE LEADER OF THE SENATE
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:54.260
  • AND SAY, "FIX THIS,"
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:56.000
  • OR THE SUPREME COURT.
  • 00:04:56.000 --> 00:04:57.070
  • SO THE AVERAGE PERSON FEELS
  • 00:04:57.070 --> 00:04:58.100
  • LIKE I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT
  • 00:04:58.100 --> 00:04:59.150
  • WHAT I'M SEEING ON THE NEWS.
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:00.230
  • SO WE WROTE THIS WITH
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:02.020
  • SIX KEY AREAS WE THINK WERE
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.160
  • KEY TO GIVE INDIVIDUAL ACTION
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:05.180
  • STEPS THAT PEOPLE CAN TAKE.
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:07.100
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:08.120
  • CONGRESS TO FIX THIS,
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:09.140
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.150
  • THE PRESIDENT TO FIX THIS.
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:11.150
  • THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:12.190
  • I THINK THAT'S ONE THING
  • 00:05:12.190 --> 00:05:13.180
  • CABLE HAS REALLY HURT US
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:14.210
  • IS WE'VE BECOME SO NATIONALLY
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.070
  • MINDED WE NO LONGER SEE
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.130
  • WHAT WE CAN INDIVIDUALLY
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.150
  • DO IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:20.000
  • SO WE SAID RACIAL HEALING,
  • 00:05:20.000 --> 00:05:21.040
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE AREAS
  • 00:05:21.040 --> 00:05:22.090
  • THAT HAS TO BE ADDRESSED.
  • 00:05:22.090 --> 00:05:23.200
  • AND THAT'S NOT A FEDERAL
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:25.050
  • SOLUTION WE NEED,
  • 00:05:25.050 --> 00:05:26.090
  • THAT'S INDIVIDUAL.
  • 00:05:26.090 --> 00:05:27.220
  • WHAT WE CAN DO
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:28.270
  • WITH IMMIGRATION.
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:30.020
  • THERE ARE SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.050
  • THINGS WE CAN DO THERE.
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:32.190
  • WHAT WE DO WITH
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:33.200
  • OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:34.260
  • YEAH, THE PRESIDENT HAS DONE
  • 00:05:34.260 --> 00:05:35.290
  • A LOT OF GREAT STUFF BUT
  • 00:05:35.290 --> 00:05:37.010
  • INDIVIDUALLY THERE ARE THINGS
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:38.020
  • WE CAN DO.
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:39.050
  • WHAT WE DO WITH THE RISING
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:40.070
  • GENERATION, MILLENNIALS?
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:41.260
  • MILLENNIALS RIGHT NOW ARE THE
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:43.070
  • MOST SECULAR GENERATION...
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:44.100
  • James: BY THE WAY THAT'S ONE
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.130
  • YOU DEAL WITH AND I'M AMAZED
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:47.260
  • AT HOW IT APPEARS TO ME
  • 00:05:47.260 --> 00:05:49.230
  • IT WAS LIKE WISDOM LOOKED
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:51.030
  • INTO THE SITUATION AND
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:52.180
  • SAYS, "LET'S TALK."
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:57.000
  • ONE THAT HONORS YOU,
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:58.110
  • EVEN YOUR QUESTIONS
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:05:59.180
  • OR YOUR BELIEFS, OR CONFUSION
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:01.230
  • YOU HAVE OR ANGER YOU HAVE
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:03.040
  • OR FRUSTRATION.
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:04.060
  • IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:06:04.060 --> 00:06:05.100
  • IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE YOU
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:06.110
  • AND GARLOW HAD SOME HELP
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:07.290
  • BECAUSE EVEN AS THAT
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:08.280
  • JUMPS OUT THIS IS A VERY
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:10.030
  • IMPORTANT GROUP THAT
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:11.170
  • COULD ACTUALLY IN THE MOST
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:12.240
  • PROFOUND AND POSITIVE WAY
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:14.160
  • MAYBE ACTUALLY LEAD US
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:15.240
  • INTO THE MOST POSITIVE THINGS
  • 00:06:15.240 --> 00:06:17.120
  • WE EVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:18.110
  • David: THEY ARE THE ENTIRETY
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:19.230
  • OUR FUTURE IS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:22.140
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE THE CHURCH
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:24.000
  • LEADERS, THEY ARE THE MEDIA
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:25.090
  • LEADERS, THEY ARE THE DOCTORS,
  • 00:06:25.090 --> 00:06:26.180
  • THEY ARE THE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:29.100
  • THERE IS NOT ANYTHING THAT
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:30.150
  • AMERICA IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:31.150
  • 30 YEARS FROM NOW THAT
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:32.190
  • IT WON'T BE THEM DOING IT.
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:33.190
  • James: THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT
  • 00:06:33.190 --> 00:06:34.230
  • THEY THINK RIGHT IN EVERY AREA
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:35.250
  • OR KNOW RIGHT IN EVERY AREA
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:36.280
  • OR WOULD EVEN CLAIM THEY DO.
  • 00:06:36.280 --> 00:06:37.290
  • BUT THEY CERTAINLY HAVE
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:38.290
  • SOME QUESTIONS, THEY CERTAINLY
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.000
  • HAVE SOME FRUSTRATIONS, THEY
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:41.000
  • CERTAINLY HAVE SOME BELIEFS
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.010
  • AND THERE NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:06:42.010 --> 00:06:43.020
  • SOME INTERACTION
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.040
  • AND COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:45.050
  • David: THAT'S WHY WE'RE AT
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:46.050
  • A PRECARIOUS MOMENT WITH
  • 00:06:46.050 --> 00:06:47.070
  • PARTICULARLY OUR YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:48.160
  • BECAUSE THE BELIEFS
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:49.220
  • THEY CURRENTLY HOLD RIGHT NOW
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:50.280
  • ON MORALITY AND ON GOVERNMENT
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:53.200
  • AND ON ECONOMICS,
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:54.270
  • THOSE THREE AREAS, THE BELIEFS
  • 00:06:54.270 --> 00:06:55.290
  • THEY CURRENTLY HOLD,
  • 00:06:55.290 --> 00:06:57.110
  • NO NATION HAS EVER SURVIVED
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:59.130
  • THE IMPLEMENTATION OF
  • 00:06:59.130 --> 00:07:00.150
  • WHAT THEY CURRENTLY BELIEVE.
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:01.240
  • SO AS THEY ARE THE FUTURE...
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:04.240
  • James: AND THAT'S NOT LIKE
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:05.260
  • SOMEBODY'S CHEAP ARGUMENT.
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:07.030
  • THIS IS HISTORICALLY
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:08.260
  • IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE.
  • 00:07:08.260 --> 00:07:10.130
  • David: NO NATION IN HISTORY
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:11.290
  • HAS EVER SURVIVED THE BELIEFS
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:13.160
  • THAT THEY CURRENTLY HOLD
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:14.170
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:15.220
  • James: WOULDN'T YOU LIKE
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:16.260
  • TO KNOW WHAT THOSE ARE?
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:18.080
  • AND WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO HAVE
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:19.080
  • A CONVERSATION ABOUT IT?
  • 00:07:19.080 --> 00:07:20.100
  • LET'S GET INTO THE MIX.
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:21.170
  • THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE TRYING
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:22.180
  • TO INSPIRE.
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:23.190
  • David: THAT'S EXACTLY IT.
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:24.250
  • AND WE TOOK WHAT WE KNEW
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:25.270
  • ABOUT THAT, AND I SPENT A LOT
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.080
  • OF EFFORT AND A LOT OF TIME,
  • 00:07:27.080 --> 00:07:29.070
  • EVEN A LOT OF RESOURCES
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:30.150
  • IN DOING POLLING AND RESEARCH
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:32.120
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:34.030
  • FIRST CORINTHIANS 11:31
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:36.150
  • THAT IF YOU JUDGE YOURSELF
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:37.240
  • YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED.
  • 00:07:37.240 --> 00:07:39.020
  • SO IF YOU WOULD LOOK
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.080
  • AND SAY, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:41.080
  • IF I'LL CLEAN THIS UP
  • 00:07:41.080 --> 00:07:42.090
  • I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:43.110
  • TO ANSWER TO GOD FOR IT LATER.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:44.140
  • IF I WOULDN'T SAY THIS..."
  • 00:07:44.140 --> 00:07:45.240
  • SO WHEN YOU LOOK INTERNAL,
  • 00:07:45.240 --> 00:07:46.260
  • IF YOU HAVE A MIRROR,
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:47.290
  • NOT LIKE JAMES WHEN YOU LOOK
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:48.290
  • IN A MIRROR AND TURN AWAY
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:50.010
  • AND DON'T REMEMBER
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:51.050
  • WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.120
  • I THINK STATISTICS REALLY
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:53.150
  • HELP US KNOW WHERE WE ARE.
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:55.010
  • I DON'T LOOK AT THEM
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:56.040
  • AS AN OBJECTIVE,
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.080
  • I LOOK AT THEM AS
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:58.120
  • AN INDICATION OF THINGS TO DO.
  • 00:07:58.120 --> 00:08:00.070
  • SO FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN I LOOK
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:01.130
  • AT MILLENNIALS ONLY 4%
  • 00:08:01.130 --> 00:08:03.290
  • OF MILLENNIALS HAVE
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:05.050
  • A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW.
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:06.220
  • EVERY OTHER GENERATION
  • 00:08:06.220 --> 00:08:07.250
  • IS HIGHER.
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:08.280
  • James: WHICH IS
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:09.270
  • A LOW PERCENTAGE.
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.000
  • David: ONLY FOUR PERCENT
  • 00:08:11.000 --> 00:08:12.000
  • OF THE CURRENT GENERATION
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:13.020
  • HAS ANY KIND OF A THOUGHT
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.080
  • PROCESS THAT ALIGNS WITH
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:15.110
  • WHERE THE BIBLE IS.
  • 00:08:15.110 --> 00:08:16.200
  • James: AND THEY DON'T EVEN
  • 00:08:16.200 --> 00:08:17.200
  • KNOW THAT THEY MIGHT BE
  • 00:08:17.200 --> 00:08:18.200
  • ABSOLUTELY CAPTIVATED BY IT
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:19.290
  • IF THEY EVER SAW IT BUT
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:20.280
  • IT'S NEVER BEEN PRESENTED TO
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:21.290
  • THEM IN THEIR ENTIRE JOURNEY.
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:24.070
  • David: WELL ACTUALLY,
  • 00:08:24.070 --> 00:08:25.180
  • THE FIFTH AREA THAT WE GET
  • 00:08:25.180 --> 00:08:26.220
  • INTO IS PART OF OUR
  • 00:08:26.220 --> 00:08:28.000
  • OWN UNDERSTANDING OF
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:29.010
  • OUR OWN HISTORY; AND THEN
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:30.010
  • THE SIXTH AREA IS THE ROLE
  • 00:08:30.010 --> 00:08:31.020
  • OF THE CHURCH; THE ROLE
  • 00:08:31.020 --> 00:08:32.110
  • OF THE CHURCH IS THE WORST
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.100
  • IT'S EVER BEEN IN AMERICAN
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:34.120
  • HISTORY, STATISTICALLY
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:35.130
  • SPEAKING; THAT'S PART
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:36.240
  • OF THE REASON MILLENNIALS
  • 00:08:36.240 --> 00:08:37.280
  • ARE WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:38.280
  • James: ISN'T IT LIKE WE'VE
  • 00:08:38.280 --> 00:08:39.280
  • JUST CHECKED OUT, DAVID?
  • 00:08:39.280 --> 00:08:40.270
  • PULLED BACK OR
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:42.000
  • JUST GONE UNDERCOVER?
  • 00:08:42.000 --> 00:08:43.080
  • David: IT'S WORSE THAN THAT.
  • 00:08:43.080 --> 00:08:45.110
  • WE'RE TOLD IN
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:46.200
  • FIRST THESSALONIANS THAT
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:47.240
  • YOU CAN BELIEVE A LIE
  • 00:08:47.240 --> 00:08:49.020
  • AND BE DAMNED.
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:50.110
  • IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:51.110
  • BAD INFORMATION YOU'LL GET
  • 00:08:51.110 --> 00:08:52.160
  • THE RESULT OF IT.
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:53.280
  • EMPIRE STATE BUILDING --
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:55.240
  • I CAN BELIEVE A LIE THAT
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:57.020
  • IF I JUMP OFF I WILL GO UP
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:58.190
  • RATHER THAN DOWN, I WILL DIE
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:00.170
  • WHEN I HIT THE GROUND.
  • 00:09:00.170 --> 00:09:01.220
  • SO IF YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:02.230
  • THE WRONG STUFF AND
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:03.240
  • YOU IMPLEMENT IT YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:04.250
  • TO GET WRONG RESULTS.
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:06.050
  • WHAT'S HAPPENED IS THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:07.070
  • HAS REDEFINED ITSELF GENERALLY
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:09.170
  • OVER THE LAST 40-50 YEARS.
  • 00:09:09.230 --> 00:09:12.230
  • LET ME SEE IF I CAN
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:13.290
  • PUT IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.070
  • LET'S START WITH THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:16.080
  • THEN WE'LL GO TO MILLENNIALS.
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:17.140
  • RIGHT NOW IN AMERICA,
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:18.240
  • THERE ARE 384.000 CHURCHES
  • 00:09:18.240 --> 00:09:21.050
  • AND SENIOR PASTORS IN AMERICA.
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:23.150
  • James: 384.000.
  • 00:09:23.150 --> 00:09:26.090
  • David: SO IF YOU TAKE THAT
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:27.140
  • A NATIONAL POLLSTER,
  • 00:09:28.280 --> 00:09:30.140
  • CALLING 500-600 CHURCHES
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:32.120
  • EVERY DAY FOR MONTHS,
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:35.040
  • QUESTION ONE: IS THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:37.210 --> 00:09:39.280
  • ACCURATE IN ITS TEACHINGS?
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.270
  • QUESTION TWO: DID JESUS
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:43.200
  • LIVE A SINLESS LIFE?
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:45.220
  • QUESTION THREE: DOES GOD GET
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:47.180
  • INVOLVED IN THE WORLD TODAY?
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:48.280
  • IF YOU PRAY
  • 00:09:48.280 --> 00:09:50.030
  • WILL HE ANSWER PRAYER?
  • 00:09:50.030 --> 00:09:51.090
  • QUESTION FOUR: CAN YOU EARN
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:53.000
  • YOUR WAY TO HEAVEN
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:54.100
  • OR IS IT A GIFT OF GRACE?
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:55.230
  • SO SIX SIMPLE QUESTIONS,
  • 00:09:55.230 --> 00:09:57.030
  • REALLY SIMPLE; 72% OF PASTORS
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:59.200
  • SAID THEY DID NOT AGREE WITH
  • 00:09:59.200 --> 00:10:01.270
  • THOSE SIX SIMPLE QUESTIONS.
  • 00:10:01.270 --> 00:10:03.060
  • SO YOU HAVE 72% OF PASTORS
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.180
  • THAT SAY, "I DON'T AGREE
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:05.180
  • WITH THE BASIC TEACHINGS
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:06.200
  • OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:07.230
  • I DON'T THINK IT IS RIGHT."
  • 00:10:07.230 --> 00:10:08.260
  • WELL, WE CAN LOOK AT
  • 00:10:08.260 --> 00:10:09.280
  • THE 72% OR WE CAN SAY
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:11.050
  • WELL, THAT DOES LEAVE US 28%.
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:13.010
  • AND THAT'S 100.000 CHURCHES
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:15.010
  • IN AMERICA, WE CAN
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:16.050
  • DO SOMETHING WITH THAT!
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:17.040
  • 100.000 CHURCHES!
  • 00:10:17.040 --> 00:10:18.140
  • SO THEN WE TAKE THOSE 100.000,
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.290
  • WE CALL THEM,
  • 00:10:19.290 --> 00:10:21.020
  • "THEOLOGICALLY CONSERVATIVE,"
  • 00:10:21.020 --> 00:10:22.140
  • THEY BELIEVE THE BIBLE.
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:23.260
  • WE THEN GET INTO THAT GROUP
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:25.130
  • AND SAY, "DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:27.280
  • THE BIBLE?"
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:29.000
  • AND AGAIN, POLLING 500-600
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:30.050
  • EVERY DAY, "DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.190
  • THE BIBLE ADDRESSES
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:33.130
  • EVERY ISSUE OF LIFE?"
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:35.080
  • "YES!"
  • 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:36.200
  • SO GIVE THEM 14 CATEGORIES.
  • 00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:38.030
  • DOES THE BIBLE ADDRESS
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:39.080
  • EDUCATION?
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:40.110
  • DOES IT ADDRESS SEXUALITY
  • 00:10:40.110 --> 00:10:41.190
  • IN MARRIAGE?
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:42.180
  • DOES IT ADDRESS IMMIGRATION?
  • 00:10:42.180 --> 00:10:44.150
  • DOES IT ADDRESS LIFE?
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:46.030
  • ETCETERA.
  • 00:10:46.030 --> 00:10:47.140
  • BETWEEN 91 -- DEPENDING ON
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:48.230
  • THE 14 CATEGORIES BETWEEN
  • 00:10:48.230 --> 00:10:50.040
  • 91 AND 97% OF THOSE PASTORS
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:52.200
  • SAID YES, THE BIBLE DOES
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:54.020
  • DEAL WITH ECONOMICS
  • 00:10:54.020 --> 00:10:55.100
  • AND DEBT AND WHATEVER. GREAT!
  • 00:10:55.100 --> 00:10:57.250
  • NEXT QUESTION.
  • 00:10:57.250 --> 00:10:59.050
  • HAVE YOU TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:10:59.050 --> 00:11:00.090
  • ANY OF THOSE ISSUES OR
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:01.110
  • WILL YOU TALK ABOUT
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:02.110
  • ANY OF THOSE ISSUES?
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:04.070
  • 90% SAID NO, WE WILL NEVER
  • 00:11:04.070 --> 00:11:05.170
  • TALK ABOUT THOSE ISSUES.
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:07.080
  • THEY'RE POLITICAL ISSUES.
  • 00:11:07.080 --> 00:11:08.170
  • NO, NO, YOU JUST SAID
  • 00:11:08.170 --> 00:11:09.210
  • THEY'RE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:10.230
  • YEAH, BUT IF THEY'RE
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:11.250
  • IN THE NEWS,
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:12.260
  • THAT MAKES THEM POLITICAL.
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:13.280
  • SO WHAT WE'RE DOING IS SAYING
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:14.290
  • ANYTHING THAT'S IN THE NEWS
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:16.000
  • THAT HAS RELEVANCY WE'RE NOT
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:17.010
  • GOING TO TALK ABOUT.
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:18.020
  • WHY WOULD A MILLENNIAL WANT
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:19.030
  • TO GO TO A CHURCH WHERE
  • 00:11:19.030 --> 00:11:20.040
  • YOU WON'T TALK ABOUT ANYTHING
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:21.060
  • THAT'S RELEVANT?
  • 00:11:21.060 --> 00:11:22.080
  • BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:23.100
  • A VERY RELEVANT WORLD.
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:24.110
  • SO AT THIS POINT
  • 00:11:24.110 --> 00:11:26.010
  • HERE'S THE MIND-BLOWING STAT.
  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:27.190
  • AT THIS POINT ONLY 2.8%
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:30.170
  • OF CHURCHES ADDRESS ISSUES
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:32.260
  • THAT ARE IN THE NEWS THAT
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:33.260
  • THE BIBLE ALSO ADDRESSES.
  • 00:11:33.260 --> 00:11:35.230
  • SO 2.8% OF CHURCHES.
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:37.200
  • NOW THAT'S A REAL PROBLEM
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:38.260
  • FOR A HEALTHY AMERICA.
  • 00:11:38.260 --> 00:11:40.200
  • NOW LET'S GO BACK TO THAT 28%,
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:42.270
  • THOSE 100.000 PASTORS.
  • 00:11:42.270 --> 00:11:45.070
  • WE ASKED THEM HOW DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:48.020
  • IF YOUR CHURCH IS SUCCESSFUL?
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:50.250
  • THE TOP FIVE ANSWERS --
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:52.210
  • NONE OF THEM CAME OUT OF
  • 00:11:52.210 --> 00:11:53.220
  • THE BIBLE, AND THESE ARE
  • 00:11:53.220 --> 00:11:54.290
  • THE THEOLOGICAL CONSERVATIVES.
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:56.040
  • NUMBER ONE ANSWER IS: HOW MANY
  • 00:11:56.040 --> 00:11:57.100
  • PEOPLE I HAVE ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:58.220
  • NUMBER TWO ANSWER IS: HOW BIG
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:11:59.280
  • THE OFFERING IS ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:11:59.280 --> 00:12:01.160
  • NUMBER THREE ANSWER IS:
  • 00:12:01.160 --> 00:12:03.080
  • HOW MANY STAFF I HAVE,
  • 00:12:03.080 --> 00:12:04.290
  • HOW MANY PROGRAMS I HAVE,
  • 00:12:04.290 --> 00:12:06.050
  • AND HOW MUCH SQUARE FOOTAGE
  • 00:12:06.050 --> 00:12:07.100
  • I HAVE.
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:08.270
  • I DON'T THINK JESUS USED
  • 00:12:08.270 --> 00:12:10.000
  • ANY OF THOSE.
  • 00:12:10.000 --> 00:12:11.030
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:12:11.030 --> 00:12:12.070
  • HE KEPT OFFENDING EVERYBODY.
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:13.120
  • JOHN SIX, HE ASKED
  • 00:12:13.120 --> 00:12:15.010
  • HIS DISCIPLES, "ARE YOU GUYS
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:16.030
  • GOING TO LEAVE ME TOO?
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:17.050
  • EVERYBODY ELSE... "
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:18.050
  • "MAN, WHAT YOU SAID
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:19.070
  • IS HARD STUFF.
  • 00:12:19.070 --> 00:12:20.090
  • THEY CAN'T FOLLOW YOU
  • 00:12:20.090 --> 00:12:21.090
  • WHEN YOU TALK LIKE THAT."
  • 00:12:21.090 --> 00:12:22.150
  • JESUS NEVER WAS INTO NUMBERS,
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:23.160
  • HE WAS INTO THE QUALITY.
  • 00:12:23.160 --> 00:12:24.230
  • SO WHAT'S HAPPENED IS WE HAVE
  • 00:12:24.230 --> 00:12:26.020
  • GOTTEN TO A PLACE NOW
  • 00:12:26.020 --> 00:12:27.070
  • WHERE THAT EVEN AS THE CHURCH
  • 00:12:27.070 --> 00:12:28.160
  • OUR MEASUREMENT FOR
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.190
  • WHAT IS SUCCESS IS NOT
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.210
  • A BIBLICAL MEASUREMENT.
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:32.020
  • OKAY, THAT'S THE GENERATION
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:35.060
  • RAISING THE PARENTS,
  • 00:12:35.060 --> 00:12:36.150
  • WHO ARE RAISING THE KIDS.
  • 00:12:36.150 --> 00:12:37.220
  • I WILL SAY THOSE MILLENNIAL
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:39.150
  • KIDS DID NOT GET THOSE BELIEFS
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:40.280
  • THEY GOT IT FROM
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:43.070
  • THE GENERATION THAT
  • 00:12:43.070 --> 00:12:44.100
  • RAISED THEM WHICH
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:45.150
  • IS THEIR EDUCATORS,
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:46.170
  • THEIR CHURCHES, THEIR MEDIA,
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:48.030
  • EVERYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:12:48.030 --> 00:12:49.120
  • THEY DIDN'T COME UP
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:50.130
  • WITH GOOFY IDEAS.
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:51.170
  • SO THE QUESTION BECOMES OKAY,
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:52.230
  • HOW CAN YOU REACH A MILLENNIAL
  • 00:12:52.230 --> 00:12:55.110
  • TO GET THEM BACK ON
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:56.150
  • THE RIGHT VIEW ON
  • 00:12:56.150 --> 00:12:58.070
  • SO MANY THINGS?
  • 00:12:58.070 --> 00:12:59.100
  • I DON'T MEAN BIBLICAL VIEW,
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:00.160
  • I MEAN EVEN STATISTICALLY.
  • 00:13:00.160 --> 00:13:02.030
  • James: LET ME ASK YOU
  • 00:13:02.030 --> 00:13:03.220
  • RIGHT HERE, CAN WE?
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:05.210
  • David: WE CAN. WE CAN.
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:07.020
  • I SEE ALL THIS MESS. I SEE IT.
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:12.010
  • BUT I'M TELLING YOU LOOK,
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:13.110
  • WE'RE SITTING HERE WITH...
  • 00:13:13.110 --> 00:13:15.050
  • WE HAVE THREE CHILDREN;
  • 00:13:15.050 --> 00:13:16.040
  • SHE LEFT BEHIND THREE CHILDREN
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:18.150
  • THAT ARE ON FIRE FOR GOD,
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:19.190
  • MARRIED TO PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:13:19.190 --> 00:13:20.210
  • ON FIRE TO GOD.
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:21.250
  • THEY HAVE ONE LITTLE GRANDBABY
  • 00:13:21.250 --> 00:13:22.260
  • SHE IS LOOKING AT FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:22.260 --> 00:13:24.100
  • OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:25.150
  • OUR 11 GRANDCHILDREN ARE
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:26.150
  • IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:13:26.150 --> 00:13:27.170
  • THEY MARRIED EIGHT
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:28.190
  • WHO HAVE MARRIED,
  • 00:13:28.190 --> 00:13:29.240
  • SPOUSES IN LOVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:30.250
  • THE OTHER THREE WILL
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:31.250
  • BE MARRYING THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:32.240
  • IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:33.260
  • YOU HAVE A FAMILY THAT
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:34.270
  • IS IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:13:34.270 --> 00:13:35.290
  • YOU HAVE GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:13:35.290 --> 00:13:37.060
  • WE HAVE A LIFE THAT WORKS.
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.240
  • WE FOUND OUT THAT IF GOD IS
  • 00:13:38.240 --> 00:13:41.000
  • THE ONE WHO LEADS US
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:42.100
  • AND HE IS OUR SOURCE,
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:43.170
  • HE WILL LEAD US INTO A LAND
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:44.290
  • FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY,
  • 00:13:44.290 --> 00:13:46.030
  • OPPORTUNITY, POSSIBILITIES
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:47.240
  • THAT ARE UNLIMITED,
  • 00:13:47.240 --> 00:13:48.260
  • CAN ONLY BE LIMITED BY
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:49.270
  • OUR DISBELIEF OF WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.210
  • HE SAYS THAT THE OPPORTUNITY,
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:53.000
  • FREEDOM WHICH HE OFFERS,
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.230
  • IT'S FOR FREEDOM
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:55.240
  • CHRIST SET US FREE.
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:56.260
  • FREEDOM'S BIG TO GOD.
  • 00:13:56.260 --> 00:13:58.020
  • HE LED HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:13:59.010
  • OUT OF BONDAGE INTO FREEDOM.
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:00.170
  • AND THEN HE SAID, "SO THAT
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:02.030
  • IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU
  • 00:14:02.030 --> 00:14:03.070
  • IN THE LAND.
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:04.120
  • SO YOU CAN LIVE THIS WAY.
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:05.190
  • WHERE I'M LEADING YOU

  • AND BLESSINGS!
  • 00:14:08.040 --> 00:14:09.160
  • YOU NEED TO STICK CLOSE
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:11.000
  • TO MY WORD AND MY TRUTH
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:13.040
  • OR YOU ARE GOING TO
  • 00:14:13.040 --> 00:14:14.030
  • BE BACK IN BONDAGE.
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:15.260
  • SO ALL THESE OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:17.270
  • PRESENT YOU THAT MANY MORE
  • 00:14:17.270 --> 00:14:18.270
  • THINGS TO LET YOUR HEART
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:20.090
  • GO AFTER, DON'T LET
  • 00:14:20.090 --> 00:14:21.230
  • YOUR HEART GO AFTER THAT."
  • 00:14:21.230 --> 00:14:22.260
  • SEE THIS IS PREACHING.
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:24.070
  • BUT IT'S COMMON SENSE TALK.
  • 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:25.230
  • YOU JUST CAN'T GO THAT WAY.
  • 00:14:25.230 --> 00:14:27.010
  • AND LIKE YOU SAID,
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:28.040
  • PEOPLE TODAY IN EDUCATION,
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:29.080
  • IN THE MEDIA,
  • 00:14:29.080 --> 00:14:30.190
  • IN ALL OF OUR ACADEMIA,
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:32.240
  • IN THE ENTERTAINMENT AND ARTS,
  • 00:14:32.240 --> 00:14:34.230
  • THEY DON'T HEAR THIS ANYMORE.
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:36.100
  • David: EVEN IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:37.150
  • WE DON'T HEAR IT ANYMORE.
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:38.230
  • James: YOU AND I ARE SITTING
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:40.150
  • HERE SMILING LIKE WE THINK
  • 00:14:40.150 --> 00:14:41.270
  • SOMETHING GOOD IS GOING
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:43.080
  • TO HAPPEN AND I THINK THAT'S
  • 00:14:43.080 --> 00:14:44.090
  • ONE REASON WHY YOU GUYS
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:45.100
  • WROTE THIS BOOK.
  • 00:14:45.100 --> 00:14:46.110
  • David: THAT'S WHY WE DID THAT
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:47.120
  • SO THAT INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:48.130
  • CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:49.260
  • THE CHURCH IN THE 20th CENTURY
  • 00:14:49.260 --> 00:14:51.070
  • GOT INTO MASSIVE CRUSADES.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:54.110
  • James: I ONLY DID 600 OF THEM.
  • 00:14:54.110 --> 00:14:56.180
  • David: THAT'S OUR
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:57.260
  • 20th CENTURY MENTALITY
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:14:59.020
  • WAS MASSIVE CRUSADES.
  • 00:14:59.020 --> 00:15:00.080
  • MAN, IF I DON'T GET 10.000
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:01.210
  • PEOPLE COMING IT'S NOT WORTH
  • 00:15:01.210 --> 00:15:02.230
  • THE EFFORT TO PUT INTO IT.
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.240
  • SO WE DO THAT.
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:05.100
  • WE DO THAT IN MEDIA.
  • 00:15:05.100 --> 00:15:06.090
  • WE DO THAT.
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:07.130
  • AND JESUS HAD THE 10.000 COME
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:09.110
  • BUT HE SPENT ALL OF HIS TIME
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:10.230
  • WITH THE 12.
  • 00:15:10.230 --> 00:15:11.290
  • James: HE SENT THEM OUT
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:13.000
  • TO DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:14.030
  • I HAD 600 CITYWIDE CRUSADES
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:15.070
  • THAT WERE ATTENDED BY
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:16.120
  • 20 MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:16.120 --> 00:15:17.130
  • RICK WARREN WROTE A BOOK
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:18.160
  • CALLED PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE .
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:19.210
  • I LIKED PURPOSE-LED LIVING
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:20.230
  • BETTER THAN
  • 00:15:20.230 --> 00:15:21.240
  • PURPOSE DRIVEN LIVING.
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:22.250
  • BUT HE WROTE A BOOK
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:23.260
  • TO 30 MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.010
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY TO ME
  • 00:15:25.010 --> 00:15:26.040
  • WITH ALL THE CRUSADES?
  • 00:15:26.040 --> 00:15:27.080
  • IF WE HAD REALLY GOTTEN
  • 00:15:27.080 --> 00:15:28.130
  • THOSE PEOPLE TO LIVE THE LIFE
  • 00:15:28.130 --> 00:15:29.180
  • HE TOLD US TO LIVE AND WE
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:30.230
  • REALLY HAD KINGDOM PURPOSE,
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:31.280
  • RICK, 30 MILLION PEOPLE
  • 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:33.030
  • COULD HAVE CHANGED AMERICA
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:34.080
  • TO LIVE A KINGDOM PURPOSE.
  • 00:15:34.080 --> 00:15:35.280
  • TO WOULD HAVE LIVED WITH
  • 00:15:37.010 --> 00:15:38.050
  • KINGDOM PURPOSE AND LET HIM BE

  • KINGDOM IMPACT WE WOULDN'T
  • 00:15:40.180 --> 00:15:41.290
  • BE IN THE MESS WE'RE IN.
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:43.070
  • TO DO, AND GARLOW IS TRYING
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:46.020
  • TO DO, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:47.050
  • WE KNOW AND LOVE...
  • 00:15:47.050 --> 00:15:48.060
  • I TOLD JIM JORDAN,
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:49.100
  • THE OHIO CONGRESSMAN,
  • 00:15:49.100 --> 00:15:50.270
  • DON'T YOU LOVE JIM?
  • 00:15:50.270 --> 00:15:52.030
  • I CALLED HIM THE OTHER DAY
  • 00:15:52.030 --> 00:15:53.050
  • AND SAID, "JIM, DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:15:53.050 --> 00:15:54.070
  • WHAT I'M PRAYING FOR?"
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:55.090
  • JOIN ME IN THIS PRAYER.
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:56.130
  • I'M PRAYING EVERY DAY --

  • SINCE MET YEARS AGO."
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.240
  • I SAID, "I'M PRAYING WE'LL
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:02.000
  • HAVE 400 OF YOU IN THE HOUSE
  • 00:16:02.000 --> 00:16:03.080
  • OF REPRESENTATIVES AND
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.100
  • 80 OF YOU IN THE SENATE."
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:05.120
  • A GOOD PRAYER?
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:07.150
  • David: A GOOD PRAYER.
  • 00:16:07.150 --> 00:16:08.170
  • James: BUT THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:09.200
  • IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IS YOU'VE
  • 00:16:09.200 --> 00:16:10.220
  • GOT TO UNDERSTAND PEOPLE
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:11.230
  • NEED A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW.
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:12.250
  • THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:13.280
  • WHY IT MATTERS.
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:15.000
  • YOU'RE NOT PUSHING ANYTHING
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:16.020
  • ON ANYBODY, YOU'RE GIVING
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:17.050
  • PEOPLE THE INVITATION
  • 00:16:17.050 --> 00:16:18.200
  • OF ALMIGHTY GOD, THE CREATOR,
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:20.140
  • TO COME AND ENJOY ALL THAT
  • 00:16:20.140 --> 00:16:21.240
  • HE DID AND BE MY OVERSEERS
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.220
  • AND TAKE CARE OF IT.
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:25.140
  • David: AND THERE IS A SIMPLE
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:26.160
  • SEE I'M REALLY ENCOURAGED
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:29.280
  • ABOUT THE NEXT GENERATION
  • 00:16:29.280 --> 00:16:30.270
  • BECAUSE AS GOOFED UP
  • 00:16:30.270 --> 00:16:32.060
  • AS THEY ARE IN THEIR THINKING,
  • 00:16:32.060 --> 00:16:33.090
  • THEY'RE A WONDERFUL
  • 00:16:33.090 --> 00:16:34.110
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:16:34.110 --> 00:16:35.120
  • GENERATION WE'VE HAD
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:37.140
  • IN POLLING HISTORY, AND THAT'S
  • 00:16:37.140 --> 00:16:38.170
  • ABOUT 100 YEARS OF HISTORY.
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:39.220
  • AND IN THE SUMMERS WE DO
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:40.280
  • LEADERSHIP TRAINING WHERE
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:41.290
  • WE TAKE 18-25 YEAR OLDS
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:44.230
  • FOR TWO WEEKS AND I WATCH THEM
  • 00:16:44.230 --> 00:16:46.240
  • GO IN WITH THE WRONG THINKING
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.110
  • AND COME OUT WITH
  • 00:16:48.110 --> 00:16:49.180
  • THE MOST ZEALOUS WORLDVIEW
  • 00:16:49.180 --> 00:16:51.100
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:52.200
  • WE LITERALLY, 75% OF COLLEGE
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:55.270
  • STUDENTS RIGHT NOW SUPPORT
  • 00:16:55.270 --> 00:16:57.100
  • SOCIALISM OVER EVERY FORM
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:58.200
  • OF GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:00.040
  • NO ONE WILL LIVE...
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:01.080
  • BUT HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:17:01.080 --> 00:17:02.150
  • JESUS IN ALL OF HIS MINISTRY,
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:04.040
  • IF YOU PAY ATTENTION
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:05.070
  • TO THE GOSPELS HE ASKED
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:06.100
  • OVER 300 QUESTIONS.
  • 00:17:06.100 --> 00:17:07.170
  • JESUS VERY RARELY ANSWERED
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:09.000
  • QUESTIONS, HE ASKED QUESTIONS.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:10.220
  • QUESTIONS MAKE YOU THINK.
  • 00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:12.030
  • OH YEAH. IT'S REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:15.290
  • HEY, YOU KNOW THERE'S BEEN
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:17.110
  • THOUSANDS OF NATIONS OVER
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:18.260
  • THE COURSE OF 5500 YEARS.
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:20.170
  • THAT HAS HAD SOCIALISM
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:23.120
  • WHERE IT'S INCREASED FREEDOM
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:24.250
  • AND PRESERVED PROSPERITY?
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:26.220
  • THEY CAN'T.
  • 00:17:26.220 --> 00:17:27.270
  • BUT NOBODY'S EVER ASKED THEM.
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:29.020
  • SO WHAT'S HAPPENING?
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:30.150
  • WE SEE THESE KIDS COME IN
  • 00:17:30.150 --> 00:17:31.240
  • THAT WAY AND GO OUT...
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:33.240
  • SO NOW WE'RE SEEING THESE KIDS
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:37.030
  • CHANGE THEIR PROFESSORS
  • 00:17:37.030 --> 00:17:38.230
  • BY ASKING QUESTIONS.
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:39.260
  • WE TEACH THEM HOW
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:40.280
  • TO ASK QUESTIONS.
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:42.010
  • SO THIS GENERATION IS THE MOST
  • 00:17:42.010 --> 00:17:43.060
  • REACHABLE WE'VE HAD BUT
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:44.210
  • YOU CAN ONLY REACH THEM
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:45.260
  • IN RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:47.070
  • IT IS DISCIPLESHIP.
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:48.120
  • YOU CAN'T REACH A CRUSADE
  • 00:17:48.120 --> 00:17:49.160
  • OF MILLENNIALS.
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:50.220
  • YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO GO
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:51.210
  • GET A COKE WITH THEM
  • 00:17:51.210 --> 00:17:52.220
  • FOUR OR FIVE OR SIX TIMES
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:53.250
  • AND LISTEN TO THEM
  • 00:17:53.250 --> 00:17:54.280
  • AND ASK THEM QUESTIONS.
  • 00:17:54.280 --> 00:17:55.280
  • James: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:57.000
  • WE'VE GOT TO DO.
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:17:58.080
  • Betty: WE HAVE
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.100
  • A RESPONSIBILITY AS

  • THE OLDER GENERATION.
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:01.140
  • IT'S NOT TIME TO SIT DOWN.
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:04.100
  • David: WE LET THEM GET THERE.
  • 00:18:04.100 --> 00:18:05.170
  • WE ARE THE ONES WHO CREATED
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:06.200
  • THE CULTURE THAT RAISED
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:07.210
  • THOSE KIDS AND WE CAN
  • 00:18:07.210 --> 00:18:08.240
  • TURN THAT AROUND!
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:09.290
  • James: NOW YOU'RE GOING
