  • IT'S HURTING.
  • 00:00:57.030 --> 00:00:58.270
  • WE'VE NEVER HAD THE TYPE OF PERSECUTION WE HAVE NOW.
  • 00:00:58.290 --> 00:01:01.030
  • THERE IS A PUBLIC INDICATION COMES OUT
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:03.290
  • EVERY YEAR BY FIRST LIBERTY, GREAT GROUP,
  • 00:01:04.010 --> 00:01:06.040
  • RELIGIOUS HOSTILITY IN AMERICA.
  • 00:01:06.060 --> 00:01:07.200
  • AND THERE ARE NOW THOUSANDS OF EXAMPLES OF
  • 00:01:07.220 --> 00:01:10.120
  • WHERE PEOPLE ARE BEING TARGETED.
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:13.070
  • FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE A PASTOR IN ARIZONA WHO
  • 00:01:13.090 --> 00:01:15.260
  • WENT TO JAIL BECAUSE HE HAD A BIBLE STUDY IN HIS
  • 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:18.200
  • HOME AND IT VIOLATED ZONING SO THEY PUT HIM
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:20.290
  • IN JAIL.
  • 00:01:21.010 --> 00:01:23.060
  • I KNOW A PASTOR FRIEND IN KANSAS SPENT 3 DAYS IN
  • 00:01:23.080 --> 00:01:27.000
  • JAIL FOR GIVING OUT THE GOSPEL OF JOHN ON
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:29.020
  • THE SIDEWALK.
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:31.120
  • TWO GIDEONS IN FLORIDA, TWO DAYS IN JAIL GIVING
  • 00:01:31.140 --> 00:01:33.270
  • OUT NEW TESTAMENTS ON A SIDEWALK.
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:36.090
  • A GUY IN GEORGIA, 67 YEAR OLD MAN, TWO DAYS IN JAIL
  • 00:01:36.110 --> 00:01:39.050
  • BECAUSE ON A CITY BUS HE GAVE OUT A RELIGIOUS
  • 00:01:39.070 --> 00:01:41.210
  • TRACK, ON A CITY BUS HE GAVE OUT A TRACK ON A
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:43.220
  • FELLOW BUS RIDER.
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:45.240
  • WE'RE TALKING JAIL TIME.
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:47.200
  • IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA A PASTOR WAS WALKING
  • 00:01:47.220 --> 00:01:50.010
  • THROUGH A MALL, YOUTH PASTOR WALKING THROUGH A
  • 00:01:50.030 --> 00:01:52.250
  • MALL TALKING TO OTHERS.
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.220
  • OFFICERS HEARD HIM MENTION THE WORD GOD,
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:56.170
  • TACKLED HIM, NOSE DIVED HIM RIGHT INTO THE
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.160
  • MARBLE, CAME UP BLOODY, HAND CUFFED HIM, HAULED
  • 00:01:58.180 --> 00:02:00.190
  • HIM OFF, ARRESTED HIM BECAUSE HE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:02.280
  • GOD TO TWO OTHER PEOPLE IN A MAUL.
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:04.280
  • IT'S JUST UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:07.020
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: HOW ARE THEY GETTING BY WITH THAT?
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:09.100
  • UNDER WHAT-- AM I MISSING A LAW HERE?
  • 00:02:09.120 --> 00:02:12.040
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:14.120
  • IT'S A MISUNDERSTANDING OF WHAT RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:16.250
  • IS AND SUPPOSED TO BE IN WHAT SEPARATION CHURCH IS.
  • 00:02:16.270 --> 00:02:19.260
  • EVERYBODY THINKS SEPARATION OF CHURCH IN
  • 00:02:19.280 --> 00:02:21.130
  • STATE IS THE MANDATE.
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:23.050
  • YOU CAN'T DO GOD IN PUBLIC.
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:24.240
  • WHEREAS THE FIRST AMENDMENT SAYS YOU CAN'T
  • 00:02:24.260 --> 00:02:26.120
  • PROHIBIT THE FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION.
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.250
  • WE'VE GOT EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:29.260
  • WE NOW THINK THE SUN COMES UP IN THE WEST AND
  • 00:02:29.280 --> 00:02:31.290
  • GOES DOWN IN THE EAST EVEN KNOW IT'S OPPOSITE
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:34.120
  • EVERY MORNING.
  • 00:02:34.140 --> 00:02:36.070
  • SO IT'S A MATTER OF KNOWLEDGE AND IT'S A
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:38.250
  • MATTER OF THESE POLICE OFFICERS, MANY OF THEM
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:40.220
  • HAVE BEEN THROUGH PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM THAT TAUGHT
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:43.110
  • THEM WRONG, THEN THEY GET ATTORNEYS WHO HAVE GONE
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:45.130
  • THROUGH LEGAL SCHOOLS THAT TEACH THEM WRONG,
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:47.060
  • AND THEY COME OUT WITH THE WRONG VIEW.
  • 00:02:47.080 --> 00:02:48.210
  • THAT'S WHY WITHOUT EXCEPTION WHEN EVERY ONE
  • 00:02:48.230 --> 00:02:51.010
  • OF THESE CASES GET INTO COURT WE ALWAYS WIN, BUT
  • 00:02:51.030 --> 00:02:53.130
  • THAT DOESN'T KEEP THE GUY FROM HAVING A BLOOD
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:56.290
  • EFFACE OR KEEP THEM FROM SERVING JAIL TIME.
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:02:59.280
  • AND BY THE WAY, IN MOST OF THESE CASES WHEN THEY
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:02.160
  • WERE THROWN IN JAIL THEY WERE DENIED ANY ACCESS TO
  • 00:03:02.180 --> 00:03:04.230
  • AN ATTORNEY WHICH ALSO VIOLATED CLEAR
  • 00:03:04.250 --> 00:03:07.170
  • CONSTITUTIONAL CLAUSES AS WELL, SO THE HOSTILITY
  • 00:03:07.190 --> 00:03:10.050
  • LEVEL IS REALLY BIG.
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:11.220
  • ST. LOUIS, FIVE YEAR OLD KID, TEACHER PICKED HIM
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:14.140
  • UP, TURNED HIM AROUND, SAID YOU'LL NEVER PRAY
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:17.090
  • OVER YOUR LUNCH AGAIN!
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:19.080
  • HAULED HIM INTO THE PRINCIPAL WHO TOLD HIM TO
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:21.150
  • HAVE A KINDERGARTEN KID ARRESTED IN GEORGIA,
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:23.040
  • ARRESTED FOR THIS.
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:25.230
  • WHAT COUNTRY ARE WE IN?
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:28.220
  • THIS IS NOT WHAT MAKES THE NEWS SO SINCE WE
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:31.150
  • DON'T SEE IT ON THE NEWS, YOU AND I JUST LOOK ON
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.260
  • THE OUTSIDE PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE IT UNLESS THEY
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:36.180
  • SEE IT ON THE NEWS.
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:38.170
  • AND IT'S NOT ON THE NEWS, AND THAT'S WHY THIS PAMPHLET
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:41.020
  • COMES OUT EVERY YEAR FROM FIRST LIBERTY,
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:43.100
  • RELIGIOUS HOSTILITY IN AMERICA, DOCUMENTING
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:45.030
  • THOUSANDS OF CASES.
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.170
  • BEEN 130% INCREASE IN THESE CASES OVER THE LAST
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:48.060
  • FIVE YEARS.
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:49.080
  • SO HOSTILITY REALLY REALLY HIGH.
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:50.050
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:51.150
  • SO I ASKED YOU A MOMENT AGO JUST AS WE STARTED
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:55.180
  • THE SHOW, AND I'LL READ IT AGAIN, WHAT IS THE
  • 00:03:55.200 --> 00:03:58.060
  • STATE OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN AMERICA?
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:04:00.230
  • THE SHORT ANSWER IS IT'S PRETTY IN DESPAIR.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:04.140
  • I MEAN, IT'S -HOW DO WE PUSH BACK AGAINST IT?
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:09.030
  • WHAT'S OUR BEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE TOOL TO PUSH BACK?
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:11.050
  • - UM, BEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE TOOL IS DEVELOP
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:14.060
  • A BACKBONE BECAUSE WE DON'T LOSE THESE CASES IN
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:17.050
  • COURT, BUT TOO MANY TIMES PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:19.060
  • FIGHT AND THEY DON'T WANT TO MAKE AN ISSUE OUT OF
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.260
  • IT AND GO TO COURT OVER IT.
  • 00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:22.260
  • AND WE HAVE SCHOOL AFTER SCHOOL WHO WILL DO
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:24.230
  • SOMETHING WRONG, AND MAN, WE JUST NEED THE PARENT
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:27.040
  • TO SAY YES, THIS KID CAN STAND UP AND PARENT SAID
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:29.240
  • OH, I DON'T WANT TO CREATE AN ISSUE, SO THAT
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:31.270
  • ALLOWS THE SCHOOL TO CONTINUE TO DO IT AND
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.280
  • OTHER SCHOOLS TO CONTINUE TO DO IT.
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.280
  • THE KIDS WANT TO STAND UP, BUT INTERESTINGLY
  • 00:04:36.000 --> 00:04:38.010
  • ENOUGH I'LL TAKE YOU TO TWO INSTANCES THAT
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:40.250
  • HAPPENED IN TEXAS, ONE WHERE A KID,
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:43.090
  • VALEDICTORIAN IN HIS CLASS, WAS TOLD BY THE
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:45.170
  • PRINCIPAL AT A RURAL DISTRICT, AND USUALLY IN
  • 00:04:45.190 --> 00:04:47.160
  • A RURAL SCHOOL YOU CAN GET BY MORE THAN YOU CAN
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:49.130
  • IN A CITY OR SUBURBAN SCHOOL.
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:51.050
  • THIS KID IN HIS VALEDICTORIAN SPEECH WAS
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:54.160
  • GOING TO THANK GOD AND HIS PARENTS, AND THE
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:57.010
  • PRINCIPAL SAID IF YOU MENTION THE WORD GOD, I
  • 00:04:57.030 --> 00:05:01.210
  • WILL TURN YOUR MIC OFF.
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:03.170
  • WELL, HE MENTIONED THE WORD GOD, HE TURNED
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:05.010
  • HIS MIC OFF.
  • 00:05:05.030 --> 00:05:06.180
  • THE KID WENT AHEAD AND GAVE THE REST OF HIS
  • 00:05:06.200 --> 00:05:08.180
  • SPEECH ANYWAY, SO THE PRINCIPAL THEN SAYS YOU
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.230
  • KNOW, YOU WERE GOING TO THE NAVAL ACADEMY.
  • 00:05:10.250 --> 00:05:13.010
  • I'M GOING TO WRITE THE NAVAL ACADEMY AND MAKE
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.180
  • SURE YOU DON'T GO THERE.
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.200
  • I'M GOING TO TELL THEM HOW BAD YOU ARE,
  • 00:05:16.220 --> 00:05:19.110
  • ET CETERA.
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:22.120
  • AND SO THIS KID WILLING TO FIGHT AND GO TO COURT
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:24.070
  • AND WON OBVIOUSLY EASILY IN COURT.
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:25.220
  • THE SCHOOL GOT SLAPPED DOWN WHICH THEY SHOULD
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:27.080
  • HAVE BEEN, BUT WHAT WAS INTERESTING WAS THIS KID,
  • 00:05:27.100 --> 00:05:29.090
  • A PASTOR CAME TO HIM ASK SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:31.180
  • YOUR AUTHORITIES NOT TO MENTION GOD.
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:34.070
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE OBEYED YOUR AUTHORITIES.
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:35.190
  • YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE MENTIONED GOD.
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:37.150
  • I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MANY OF THESE CASES WHERE
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:39.080
  • KIDS STAND UP TO SHOW BACKBONE AND PASTORS SAY,
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:40.280
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:05:41.000 --> 00:05:42.180
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO YOUR AUTHORITY.
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:44.050
  • IN COONS, TEXAS GIRLS THERE, CHEER LEADERS
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:47.100
  • SAID, WHY DO WE ALWAYS SAY CRUSH THE OTHER TEAM
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:49.110
  • OR DESTROY OR KILL?
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:51.080
  • WHY DON'T WE PUT POSITIVE MESSAGES UP?
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:54.070
  • SO WITH THEIR OWN MONEY THEY MADE BANNERS, THEIR
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:57.020
  • OWN PAID FOR PAINT BY THEMSELVES, I CAN DO ALL
  • 00:05:57.040 --> 00:05:58.230
  • THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:00.080
  • WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS, AND THE TEAM
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:02.010
  • WOULD RUN THROUGH THAT ON THE FIELD.
  • 00:06:02.030 --> 00:06:03.280
  • BECAME AN ISSUE, SO THE SCHOOL SAID, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:05.180
  • HAVE RELIGIOUS VERSES.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.290
  • AND THE KID SAID WE DID IT WITH OUR OWN MONEY
  • 00:06:08.010 --> 00:06:09.160
  • AND TIME.
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:11.030
  • SURE WE CAN.
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.160
  • AND AGAIN THEY WENT TO COURT.
  • 00:06:12.180 --> 00:06:13.250
  • IT GOES YEARS IN COURT.
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.120
  • AND THE COURT SAYS FREE SPEECH, OF COURSE THEY CAN.
  • 00:06:15.140 --> 00:06:17.120
  • FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION.
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:18.150
  • OF COURSE THEY CAN.
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:19.240
  • BUT AGAIN PASTORS SAID GIRLS, YOU SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:24.050
  • LISTENED TO YOUR AUTHORITY.
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:25.290
  • YOUR AUTHORITIES TOLD YOU NOT TO USE BIBLE VERSES.
  • 00:06:26.010 --> 00:06:27.240
  • THESE ARE WHAT WE WOULD CALL EVANGELICAL PASTORS,
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.260
  • AND SO THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WE HAVE IS OFTEN
  • 00:06:29.280 --> 00:06:32.150
  • FROM THE INSIDE, NOT FROM THE OUTSIDE BECAUSE WE
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:34.290
  • WIN THESE CASES WHEN WE GET THEM TO COURT.
  • 00:06:35.010 --> 00:06:36.200
  • WE'RE LOOKING AT THE SUPREME COURT RIGHT THERE
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:38.210
  • ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAPITOL, AND DON'T LOSE
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:42.030
  • THESE CASES WHEN WE GET TO THAT LEVEL.
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:45.070
  • - WE DON'T.
  • 00:06:45.090 --> 00:06:46.260
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:06:46.280 --> 00:06:49.130
  • SO WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FIRST OF ALL, DAVE
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.260
  • BARTON, LET ME GIVE YOU A PROPER INTRODUCTION.
  • 00:06:51.280 --> 00:06:53.130

  • FORGOTTEN HISTORY AND HEROES.
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:06:59.050
  • THIS ISN'T WRITTEN.
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.030
  • THIS IS ME NOW TALKING.
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.210

  • OPPORTUNITY AND THE CONTEXT OF SITTING HERE
  • 00:07:15.130 --> 00:07:17.220

  • ON THE SCREEN, AND LET ME JUST DO THIS AS WE'RE

  • STARTING THIS BROADCAST.
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:26.130
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT -WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:30.020
  • RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES, AND CERTAINLY WE WINSOME,
  • 00:07:30.040 --> 00:07:31.200
  • WE LOSE SOME.
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:36.130
  • CERTAINLY THERE HAS BEEN SOME POSITIVE THINGS THAT
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:39.040
  • HAVE HAPPENED, THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT THAT IS
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:43.210
  • SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT NOW BECAUSE OF A PRESIDENTIAL
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:48.240
  • DECREE I THINK IT WAS.
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:50.220
  • - EXECUTIVE ORDER.
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:52.270
  • - EXECUTIVE ORDER, AND SO THERE ARE SOME THINGS
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:55.080
  • WE WIN, SOME THINGS WE ARE LOSING, SOME THINGS
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:58.060
  • WE NEED TO DO BETTER.
  • 00:07:58.080 --> 00:08:00.180
  • WHAT IT FEELS LIKE THOUGH IS I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:08:00.200 --> 00:08:02.240
  • THAT THE INFORMATION ABOUT WALL BUILDERS,
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:05.180
  • LOOK, GO TO THEIR WEB SITE AND GET EDUCATED.
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:08.150
  • - LET ME JUST SAY WE'RE NOT BUILDING A WALL ON
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:10.090
  • THE SOUTHERN BORDER.
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:11.160
  • THAT'S NOT US.
  • 00:08:11.180 --> 00:08:12.290
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:13.010 --> 00:08:14.100
  • PEOPLE TODAY DON'T RECOGNIZE THE FACT THAT
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:15.290
  • WALL BUILDERS IS A VIABLE --
  • 00:08:16.010 --> 00:08:17.290
  • - I NEVER MADE THAT CONNECTION.
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:20.040
  • I HAVE TO MAKE THAT CLEAR.
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:22.090
  • - I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY CALLS WE GET FOR
  • 00:08:22.110 --> 00:08:24.140
  • CONSTRUCTION STUFF.
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:25.290
  • NO. THIS IS NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:08:26.010 --> 00:08:27.250
  • IT'S REBUILDING THE WALLS THAT HAVE BEEN TORN DOWN.
  • 00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:29.060
  • - I GET IT, DAVE.
  • 00:08:29.080 --> 00:08:30.280
  • - HE WANTS THEM TO GET IT.
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:32.170
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:34.040
  • THEY'RE NOT BUILDING ANY WALLS.
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:35.130
  • INASMUCH AS THERE MIGHT BE A WALL BEING BUILT,
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:37.030
  • IT'S NOT BEING DONE BY DAVE.
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:38.110
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:08:38.130 --> 00:08:40.090
  • - SO I WANNA YOU TO GET DAVE'S CONTENT AND THE
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.210
  • FOUNDERS BIBLE.
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:44.120
  • - YES.
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:46.160
  • - LOOK, ALL OF THIS STUFF THAT DAVE DOES
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:48.090
  • IS AMAZING.
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:49.240
  • OKAY, WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THOUGH FEELS KIND
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:53.060
  • OF HISTORICALLY UNIQUELY CONNECTED TO THE 500 YEAR
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:57.030
  • HISTORY OF KIND OF THE REFORMATION, AND THERE
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:09:01.160
  • WAS A VERY FAMOUS MARTIN LUTHER'S EVENT 500 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:05.000
  • LAURIE AND I WERE THERE IN WITTENBERG OR
  • 00:09:05.020 --> 00:09:08.140
  • VITTENBERG DEPENDING ON WHO YOU'RE TALKING TO.
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:13.070
  • THAT IS KIND OF BEING TALKED ABOUT THROUGH THE
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:17.160
  • YEAR OF 2017, LARGE, HUGE EVENTS WENT ON THERE
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:21.030
  • IN GERMANY THAT WE TRIED TO AVOID.
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:25.120
  • WE WERE AROUND HUGE CROWDS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:28.170
  • HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:28.190 --> 00:09:30.260
  • TALK ABOUT REVIVAL AND AMERICA AND WHY WE NEED A
  • 00:09:30.280 --> 00:09:35.250
  • NEW REFORMATION AS IT WERE, AND IF WE'RE NOT
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:40.050
  • SEEING IT, WHY NOT?
  • 00:09:40.070 --> 00:09:42.090
  • WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:44.030
  • - I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MANY CHURCHES I'M WITH
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:46.080
  • THAT ARE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL FOR AMERICA.
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:48.080
  • NOW, I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE A
  • 00:09:48.100 --> 00:09:50.090
  • CLUE WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:09:50.110 --> 00:09:51.270
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:09:51.290 --> 00:09:53.180
  • - AND HERE'S WHY I SAY THAT, IN TEXAS, OUR
  • 00:09:53.200 --> 00:09:56.100
  • BRANCH, WE'RE AT THE CENTER OF A DROUGHT FOR
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:09:58.250
  • FIVE YEARS.
  • 00:09:58.270 --> 00:10:00.090
  • WE PRAYED FOR RAIN.
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:02.040
  • WE SAW WHEN THE RAIN CAME PRAYER WAS ANSWERED.
  • 00:10:02.060 --> 00:10:03.080
  • HERE'S ANY QUESTION.
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:04.240
  • YOU'RE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL.
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.090
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED?
  • 00:10:06.110 --> 00:10:07.240
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO STOP PRAYING?
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:09.110
  • WHAT'S YOUR REVIVAL LOOK LIKE?
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:11.000
  • AND WELL EVERYTHING IS WELL AND HEALTHY. NO.
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:12.250
  • WE HAVE REVIVALS LIKE THE FIRST GRADE AWAKENING,
  • 00:10:12.270 --> 00:10:14.220
  • THE SECOND GRADE AWAKENING, AND NOBODY
  • 00:10:14.240 --> 00:10:18.100
  • KNEW THEY WERE IN THOSE REVIVALS UNTIL THEY WERE
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:20.120
  • LONG AFTERWARDS AND HISTORIANS LOOKED BACK
  • 00:10:20.140 --> 00:10:23.000
  • AND SAID I THINK LET'S CALL THAT THE
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:25.040
  • FIRST GRADE AWAKENING.
  • 00:10:25.060 --> 00:10:26.200
  • GEORGE WHITFIELD NEVER KNEW HE WAS IN A REVIVAL.
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:28.140
  • HE HAD NO IDEA BECAUSE THEY LAST DECADES.
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:31.110
  • THE FIRST GRADE AWAKENING IS 1730 TO 1770.
  • 00:10:31.130 --> 00:10:34.240
  • THE SECOND GRADE AWAKENING SOMETIMES BUMPS
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:37.010
  • THE THIRD GRADE AWAKENING 1801 TO 1877.
  • 00:10:37.030 --> 00:10:39.010
  • 76 YEARS.
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:42.150
  • YOU COULD BE BORN AND DIED AND BE 75 YEARS OLD
  • 00:10:42.170 --> 00:10:44.070
  • AND NEVER KNEW YOU WERE IN A REVIVAL BECAUSE
  • 00:10:44.090 --> 00:10:45.270
  • YOU'RE WHOLE LIFE IS LIVING ONE, SO WE HAVE AN
  • 00:10:45.290 --> 00:10:47.070
  • ARTIFICIAL CONSTRUCT FOR REVIVAL THAT'S NOT
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:49.140
  • HISTORICALLY ACCURATE.
  • 00:10:49.160 --> 00:10:52.100
  • REVIVALS ARE A LOT OF HARD WORK.
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:55.020
  • THEY ARE A LOT OF FIGHT, AND IT USUALLY IS
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:57.230
  • INTERNAL FIGHT.
  • 00:10:57.250 --> 00:10:59.220
  • WHO WAS MARTIN LUTHER PROTESTING?
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.080
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:02.210
  • HE WAS THE PRIEST IN A CHURCH PROTESTING.
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:04.180
  • HE'S NOT TAKING ON SECULAR GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:06.220
  • HE'S TAKING ON THE CHURCH.
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:08.080
  • AND SO REVIVAL OFTEN MEANS THE CHURCH
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:10.110
  • FIGHTS ITSELF.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:12.140
  • - INTERESTING.
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:14.070
  • - AND BY THE WAY, I'LL POINT OUT NEARLY ALWAYS
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:18.070
  • THE MAINSTREAM CHURCH IS NEVER PART OF A REVIVAL
  • 00:11:18.090 --> 00:11:21.240
  • BECAUSE IT'S ALWAYS OLD WINE SKINS,
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:24.260
  • NEW WINE SKINS.
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:26.250
  • REMEMBER JESUS TALKED ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:28.090
  • - WOW.
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:30.020
  • - A REVIVAL COMES AND THEY SAY WE'VE NEVER DONE
  • 00:11:30.040 --> 00:11:31.160
  • -FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS WE'VE DONE IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:32.220
  • JESUS COMES WITH A NEW WINE SKIN.
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:34.110
  • AND SEE THAT'S WHY GEORGE WHIT FEED, I TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:36.050
  • HIM IN THE FIRST GRADE AWAKENING, GRAB THIS,
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:38.030
  • YOU'RE IN AMERICA BACK IN THE FOUNDING ERA,
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:40.070
  • 1730 TO 1770.
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:43.290
  • YOUR TRANSPORTATION IS A HORSE.
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:45.200
  • THERE IS NO PUBLIC COMMUNICATION EXCEPT,
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:47.250
  • EXCEPT YOUR VOICE.
  • 00:11:47.270 --> 00:11:50.070
  • HE SPENT 34 YEARS PREACHING IN AMERICA,
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:52.240
  • PREACHED 18.000 SERMONS ON HORSEBACK.
  • 00:11:52.260 --> 00:11:54.270
  • HE RODE FROM MAINE TO GEORGIA AND BACK 7 TIMES
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:57.250
  • PREACHING AS HE WENT.
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:59.170
  • 80% OF ALL AMERICANS PHYSICALLY HEARD HIM
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:02.110
  • PREACH A SERMON.
  • 00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:05.000
  • HOW MANY COMMUNITIES DO YOU HAVE TO BE IN FOR 80%
  • 00:12:05.020 --> 00:12:07.260
  • OF AMERICANS TO HEAR YOU PERSONALLY IN-PERSON
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:10.140
  • DELIVER A SERMON?
  • 00:12:10.160 --> 00:12:12.070
  • IT KILLED HIM.
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:13.180
  • THE LAST TWO YEARS OF HIS LIFE HE HAD A PORTABLE
  • 00:12:13.200 --> 00:12:15.200
  • PULPIT HE CARRIED ON HIS HORSE, AND HE WOULD GET
  • 00:12:15.220 --> 00:12:18.040
  • THAT PULPIT OUT, GET IT OUT, PREACH TO A CROWD
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:20.040
  • AND THEN GO OFF AND SPIT UP HIS GUTS AND COUGH UP
  • 00:12:20.060 --> 00:12:22.100
  • A BUNCH OF BLOOD AND GET BACK ON HIS HORSE.
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:24.020
  • KILLED HIM.
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:25.220
  • IT WAS NO FUN WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:27.150
  • IT WAS HARD WORK, BUT IT SAVED THE NATION.
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:29.120
  • WE WOULD NOT BE HERE WERE IT NOT FOR WHITFIELD AND
  • 00:12:29.140 --> 00:12:31.090
  • THE GREAT AWAKENING.
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:33.000
  • BUT HERE'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:34.120
  • WHY WAS WHIT FIELD ALWAYS PREACHING OUTSIDE IN
  • 00:12:34.140 --> 00:12:36.110
  • OPEN AIR MEETINGS?
  • 00:12:36.130 --> 00:12:37.260
  • BECAUSE NO CHURCH WOULD LET HIM COME INSIDE.
  • 00:12:37.280 --> 00:12:40.050
  • WE DON'T DO IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:12:40.070 --> 00:12:42.040
  • OH, YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE GUYS?
  • 00:12:42.060 --> 00:12:44.000
  • WE DON'T -REVIVAL, SECOND GRADE AWAKENING,
  • 00:12:44.020 --> 00:12:45.180
  • OUTDOOR REVIVALS. WHY?
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:47.190
  • WE DON'T DO THAT IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:50.030
  • AND SO THE CHURCH TYPICALLY MAKES THE
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:52.190
  • DECISION I'M NOT GOING TO BE PART OF IT.
  • 00:12:52.210 --> 00:12:54.080
  • WE'RE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL, THEN WHEN IT
  • 00:12:54.100 --> 00:12:56.040
  • COMES, I'M NOT DOING IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:57.250
  • THAT DOESN'T FIT MY IMAGE OF WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:12:57.270 --> 00:12:59.220
  • SO LITERALLY HERE'S WHY I THINK I CAN STATISTICALLY
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:02.200
  • PROVE AMERICA'S IN REVIVAL RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:13:02.220 --> 00:13:05.010
  • I THINK HISTORIANS WILL LOOK BACK AND SAY THIS IS
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:07.130
  • REVIVAL, AND I THINK I CAN PROVE IT SEVERAL WAYS.
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:10.170
  • I'M GOING TO USE THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF PROOF.
  • 00:13:10.190 --> 00:13:13.030
  • THERE'S OVER 3 00.000 CHURCHES IN AMERICA.
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:15.100
  • I'M ONBOARD WITH GEORGE BARNA.
  • 00:13:15.120 --> 00:13:17.260
  • GEORGE BARNA IS THE MOST CITED POLLSTER IN
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:20.010
  • AMERICAN HISTORY.
  • 00:13:20.030 --> 00:13:22.050
  • HE IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAS JUST FOCUSED
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:24.090
  • SOLELY ON THE CHURCH.
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:26.060
  • HE'S IN A BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW AND THINKING.
  • 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:27.220
  • HIS BOOK IS JUST TERRIFIC.
  • 00:13:27.240 --> 00:13:29.100
  • I RECOMMEND EVERY GEORGE BARNA PIECE HE'S EVER DONE.
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:31.100
  • HE'LL CALL 500 TO 600 CHURCHES EVERY DAY.
  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:33.250
  • NOT IN A WEEK.
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:36.050
  • EVERYDAY 500 TO 600 CHURCHES, AND THE COOL
  • 00:13:36.070 --> 00:13:40.080
  • THING ABOUT GEORGE BARNA IS HE DOESN'T LET YOU
  • 00:13:40.100 --> 00:13:42.080
  • SELF-IDENTIFY.
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:43.270
  • IF YOU HAVE A FOX POLLER, NBC POLLER OR WASHINGTON
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:45.200
  • POST POLLER THEY'LL SAY ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:47.120
  • IF YOU SAY YES, THEY'LL MARK YOU.
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:49.160
  • ARE YOU A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:13:49.180 --> 00:13:51.180
  • YOU SAID SAY, THEY'LL MARK YOU.
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:52.250
  • ARE YOU AN EVANGELICAL?
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.070
  • GEORGE DOESN'T LET YOU SELF-IDENTIFY THAT WAY.
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.180
  • HE WILL ASK YOU A QUESTION, HAVE YOU HAD A
  • 00:13:55.200 --> 00:13:57.250
  • LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE CENTERING ON JESUS CHRIST?
  • 00:13:57.270 --> 00:13:59.220
  • NO, I NEVER HAVE.
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:01.270
  • I DON'T CARE IF YOU SAY YOU'RE A BORN AGAIN
  • 00:14:01.290 --> 00:14:04.200
  • CHRISTIAN OR NOT, IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A LIFE
  • 00:14:04.220 --> 00:14:06.140
  • CHANGING EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS CHRIST, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:08.190
  • BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:11.270
  • SO THAT'S WHY -DO YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE IS
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:13.160
  • GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:14:13.180 --> 00:14:15.290
  • NO, I THINK IT'S A GOOD GUIDE BUT -- I DON'T CARE.
  • 00:14:16.010 --> 00:14:18.170
  • YOU CAN'T BE AN EVANGELICAL, MATT, NO
  • 00:14:18.190 --> 00:14:20.150
  • MATTER WHAT YOU CALL YOURSELF IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:14:20.170 --> 00:14:23.020
  • BELIEVE THE BIBLE IS THE GUIDE BOOK.
  • 00:14:23.040 --> 00:14:24.280
  • WHERE AS NATIONALLY POLLSTERS PUT
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:26.210
  • EVANGELICALS ABOUT 24% TO 27% OF THE NATION,
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:28.210
  • BARNA PUTS IT AT ABOUT 9% OF THE NATION BECAUSE
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:31.240
  • HE ASKS YOU QUESTIONS THAT IDENTIFY YOU.
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:34.100
  • SO ASK SIX QUESTIONS, CHURCHES, REALLY EASY,
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:35.280
  • CAN YOU EARN SALVATION OR IS THAT A GIFT OF GRACE?
  • 00:14:36.000 --> 00:14:39.060
  • DID JESUS LIVE A SINLESS LIFE?
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:41.280
  • IS THE BIBLE TRUE IN IT TEACHINGS?
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:45.090
  • DOES GOD STILL GET INVOLVED IN THE WORLD TODAY?
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:47.070
  • WILL HE ANSWER PRAYER?
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:48.290
  • IS SATAN IMAGINARY BEING OR IS HE A REAL BEING BUT
  • 00:14:49.010 --> 00:14:52.090
  • WE JUST BLAME THINGS ON THE IMAGINARY?
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.210
  • AND DO YOU BELIEVE THERE'S ABSOLUTE
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:57.010
  • MORAL TRUTH?
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:59.020
  • DOES THE BIBLE SET FORTH MORAL RIGHTS AND WRONGS?
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:02.150
  • AT THIS POINT RIGHT NOW 72% OF THE NATION'S
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:05.020
  • CHURCHES DO NOT AGREE THOSE SIX STATEMENTS.
  • 00:15:05.040 --> 00:15:07.130
  • NOW THOSE ARE SIX SIMPLE NON-NEGOTIABLES.
  • 00:15:07.150 --> 00:15:08.290
  • THAT'S THE EASIEST STUFF IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:11.140
  • 72% SAYS HUH-UH, WE'RE NOT THERE.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.180
  • OKAY.
  • 00:15:12.200 --> 00:15:14.260
  • BUT THAT DOES MEAN THAT WE HAVE 28% THAT DO
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:17.100
  • BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:18.290
  • THAT'S 100.000 CHURCHES.
  • 00:15:19.010 --> 00:15:20.200
  • THAT WILL SAVE A NATION ANY DAY.
  • 00:15:20.220 --> 00:15:22.190
  • SO THEN FOCUS ON THOSE 100.000 CHURCHES, THOSE
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:25.000
  • THAT DO BELIEVE, AND WE CALL THEM THEOLOGICALLY
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:28.260
  • CONSERVATIVE CHURCHES, THEY ADHERE TO THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:28.280 --> 00:15:31.040
  • SO WE START ASKING THOSE PASTORS, CALL THEM, ASK
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:34.270
  • THEM, AND WE ASK THEM AND SAY OKAY, DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:15:34.290 --> 00:15:37.160
  • THE BIBLE APPLIES TO EVERY ISSUE OF LIFE?
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:41.110
  • SURE. I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:43.230
  • I MEAN, GOD GAVE 613 LAWS.
  • 00:15:43.250 --> 00:15:45.230
  • THERE'S NO LAW WE COVER OVER HERE THERE'S NO WAY
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:47.160
  • THE BIBLE HASN'T ADDRESSED BY PRINCIPLE
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:48.270
  • OR SPECIFIC.
  • 00:15:48.290 --> 00:15:50.160
  • SO WE THEN ASK THEM DO YOU THINK THE BIBLE
  • 00:15:50.180 --> 00:15:52.190
  • SPEAKS ABOUT ABORTION?
  • 00:15:52.210 --> 00:15:56.160
  • DOES THE BIBLE SPEAK ABOUT MARRIAGE?
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:15:58.080
  • DOES IT SPEAK ABOUT GENDER IDENTITY?
  • 00:15:58.100 --> 00:16:00.050
  • DOES THE BIBLE SPEAK ABOUT RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION.
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:03.150
  • DOES THE BIBLE SPEAK ABOUT ECONOMICS AND
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:05.080
  • EDUCATION OR IMMIGRATION?
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:07.090
  • GO THROUGH 14 THINGS.
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.250
  • FORTUNATELY BETWEEN 91 AND 97% OF THOSE PASTORS
  • 00:16:08.270 --> 00:16:12.190
  • SAID YES, THE BIBLE ADDRESSES THAT ISSUE.
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.010
  • SO THAT'S GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:17.050
  • THESE GUYS NOT ONLY BELIEVE THE BIBLE.
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:19.010
  • THEY THINK THE BIBLE APPLIES TO EVERY ASPECT
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:20.220
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:22.200
  • NEXT QUESTION, HAVE YOU ADDRESSED ANY OF THOSE
  • 00:16:22.220 --> 00:16:25.020
  • ISSUES TO YOUR CONGREGATION OR WILL YOU
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:26.200
  • ADDRESS THOSE?
  • 00:16:26.220 --> 00:16:28.210
  • 90% OF BIBLE BELIEVING PASTORS SAID NO WAY.
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:31.070
  • THOSE ARE POLITICAL ISSUES.
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:32.120
  • I WON'T TOUCH THEM.
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:33.190
  • - OH, DEAR.
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:35.040
  • - TIME OUT.
  • 00:16:35.060 --> 00:16:36.180
  • YOU JUST SAID THEY'RE IN THE BIBLE, AND NOW YOU
  • 00:16:36.200 --> 00:16:38.080
  • SAID BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT IT'S POLITICAL,
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:39.230
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE BIBLE?
  • 00:16:39.250 --> 00:16:41.150
  • SO WE'RE AT 2.8% OF PASTORS IN THE NATION
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:44.020
  • WILLING TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD AND APPLY IT TO
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.040
  • WHAT GOES ON IN DAILY LIFE.
  • 00:16:46.060 --> 00:16:48.100
  • NOW, REVIVAL, ALL REVIVAL MEANS IS THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:51.130
  • IS ONCE AGAIN ACCEPTED AS AND APPLIED TO YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:53.280
  • AND YOU LIVE IT OUT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:54.000 --> 00:16:56.020
  • THAT'S WHY THE WORD OF GOD APPLIES TO EVERY
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:58.150
  • HEADLINE THAT'S OUT THERE, BUT TODAY PEOPLE
  • 00:16:58.170 --> 00:17:00.130
  • CAN'T TAKE A BIBLE VERSE AND PUT IT WITH A
  • 00:17:00.150 --> 00:17:02.180
  • CAPITOL GAINS TAX.
  • 00:17:02.200 --> 00:17:04.280
  • THEY CAN'T TAKE A BIBLE VERSE AND PUT IT IN
  • 00:17:05.000 --> 00:17:06.250
  • COMPETITION OF FREE MARKET.
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:08.110
  • WE USED TO, AND SEE, THAT'S WHAT THE CHURCH
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:10.180
  • USED TO BE GOOD AT DOING IS SAYING LOOK HOW THE
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:12.070
  • WORD OF GOD APPLIES.
  • 00:17:12.090 --> 00:17:13.240
  • LOOK AT WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:14.250
  • AND BUSINESS.
  • 00:17:14.270 --> 00:17:16.040
  • LOOK WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.140
  • WE USED TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:19.020
  • AND THAT'S A REVIVAL, SO REVIVAL ALL IT MEANS IS
  • 00:17:19.040 --> 00:17:20.250
  • THE WORD OF GOD STARTS BECOMING PRACTICAL AGAIN.
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:22.290
  • YOU START LIVING OUT THE WORD OF GOD, AND THE
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:26.050
  • CHURCH RIGHT NOW SAYS WE REFUSE TO BE PART OF THAT.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:29.210
  • WE'RE NOT GONNA DO--
  • 00:17:29.230 --> 00:17:31.220
  • THAT'S WHY A RIVAL NEARLY ALWAYS HAPPENS OUTSIDE
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:33.280
  • THE CHURCH, AND SO YOU'RE SEEING ALL THESE OTHER
  • 00:17:34.000 --> 00:17:37.120
  • THINGS STARTING TO COME IN FROM THE OUTSIDE THAT
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.120
  • ARE MOVING US IN A SPIRITUAL DIRECTION.
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.150
  • BUT WE'RE THE MOST SECULAR WE'VE EVER BEEN
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:44.050
  • AS A NATION, AND IT'S BECAUSE THE PULPIT, THE
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:46.180
  • CHURCH REFUSES TO APPLY GOD'S WORD TO REAL LIFE.
  • 00:17:46.200 --> 00:17:51.040
  • - DAVE, UM, I WANT YOUR--
  • 00:17:51.060 --> 00:17:53.220
  • - [DAVE] ARE WE DEPRESSED ENOUGH NOW?
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:55.250
  • - WELL, YOU'RE MAKING A POINT, AND I DON'T WANT
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:58.050
  • YOU TO FORGET THAT YOU ARE SOMEWHAT TRYING TO
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:01.290
  • PROVE THAT WE'RE IN A REVIVAL, OKAY.
  • 00:18:02.010 --> 00:18:05.010
  • SO FAR THAT WAS MAYBE THE BAD NEWS OF THAT
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:08.130
  • DISSERTATION I HOPE.
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:10.030
  • I HOPE IT DOESN'T GET ANY WORSE.
  • 00:18:10.050 --> 00:18:12.150
  • BUT I JUST HAVE ONE QUESTION I WANT TO INSERT
  • 00:18:12.170 --> 00:18:15.040
  • RIGHT HERE IS: IS IT BECAUSE OF THE UNIQUE 180
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:22.090
  • THAT HAPPENED IN 1947 WHEN THE SEPARATION OF
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:27.040
  • CHURCH AND STATE REALLY GOT TURNED ON ITS, TURNED 180?
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:31.190
  • WOULD THAT BE THE COMPELLING REASON A
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:34.240
  • PASTOR DOESN'T ADDRESS THOSE?
  • 00:18:34.260 --> 00:18:36.250
  • HE DOESN'T THINK HE CAN?
  • 00:18:36.270 --> 00:18:38.150
  • - THAT'S PART.
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:40.080
  • THAT IS PART OF WHAT WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO IT,
  • 00:18:40.100 --> 00:18:42.160
  • BUT THAT'S NOT SUBSTANTIVE UNLESS YOU'RE
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:46.130
  • ALREADY BELIEVING THE WRONG THINGS.
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:48.120
  • IF I READ THE BIBLE AND I SAY JESUS CALLED OUT
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:51.220
  • HEROD AND HE CALLED HIM AN OLD FOX, AND IF I SEE
  • 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:54.010
  • JESUS CONFRONT-- YOU'RE A CIVIL LEADER,
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:56.200
  • YOU'RE A WHITE WASHED SEPULCHER.
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:18:59.020
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT 1947 SUPREME COURT SAYS,
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:01.240
  • MY BIBLE SAYS JESUS CONFRONTED THE CIVIL
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:04.040
  • LEADERS AND TALKED ABOUT CIVIL ISSUES.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:06.050
  • HE TALKED ABOUT THE BAD CONSTRUCTION OF THE TOWER
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:08.220
  • AT GILBOA THAT FELL AND THE ARCHITECTURE IS BAD,
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:11.080
  • KILLED 18 PEOPLE. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW
  • 00:19:11.100 --> 00:19:13.170
  • HEROD MINGLED THE BLOOD OF THE GALILEANS SACRIFICES.
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:15.260
  • HE TALKED ABOUT ISSUES THAT WERE ANY NEWS OF THE
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:18.190
  • PEOPLE RIGHT THEN IN THAT POINT IN TIME.
  • 00:19:18.210 --> 00:19:20.280
  • AND I DON'T CARE WHAT 1947 SUPREME COURT SAYS.
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.150
  • I KNOW WHAT MY BIBLE SAID.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:24.230
  • I KNOW IN THE CASE OF ELIJAH, HE WAS JUST-- YOU
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:29.150
  • REMEMBER THE WICKEDNESS OF AHAB AND JEZEBEL?
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:32.040
  • HE WAS JUST ABOUT TO CONFRONT THE WICKEDNESS
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:34.080
  • OF AHAB AND JEZEBEL, AND HE WAS JUST ABOUT TO TELL
  • 00:19:34.100 --> 00:19:37.040
  • THEM, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID WITH IMMINENT DOMAIN,
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:39.050
  • TAKING PRIVATE PROPERTY, WHAT YOU DID WITH RELIGIOUS
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:42.150
  • PROSECUTION, YOU KILLED THE LORD'S PROPHETS, HE'S
  • 00:19:42.170 --> 00:19:44.100
  • JUST ABOUT TO LAY IT ALL OUT AND FORTUNATELY HE
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:46.010
  • REMEMBERS HIS 501C3 TAXES AND KEPT HIS MOUTH SHUT.
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:49.130
  • MY BIBLE DOESN'T SHOW THAT.
  • 00:19:49.150 --> 00:19:50.290
  • MY BIBLE SHOWS THAT EVERY MINISTER OF GOD
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:52.260
  • CONFRONTED THE CIVIL ARENA EVERY TIME.
  • 00:19:52.280 --> 00:19:55.030
  • NATHAN AND GAD JUMPED DAVID AND SAID DAVID,
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:57.120
  • THOU ART THE MAN.
  • 00:19:57.140 --> 00:19:58.190
  • YOU'RE THE GUY THAT SLEPT WITH BATHSHEBA.
  • 00:19:58.210 --> 00:20:00.140
  • IT WAS THE PREACHERS CALLING OUT THE CIVIL LEADERS.
  • 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:03.260
  • SO I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYTHING, IF I KNOW THE
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:06.260
  • BIBLE, I SAY NO, I'VE GOT TO ADDRESS THIS STUFF.
  • 00:20:06.280 --> 00:20:10.020
  • THAT'S WHAT WE SEE THROUGHOUT.
  • 00:20:10.040 --> 00:20:11.210
  • - AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED 500 YEARS AGO
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.070
  • WITH LUTHER.
  • 00:20:13.090 --> 00:20:14.200
  • - HE SAID I'VE BEEN IN THE BIBLE, I'VE BEEN STUDYING
  • 00:20:14.220 --> 00:20:16.260
  • THE BIBLE, YOU GUYS ARE SAYING ALL THIS STUFF OUT
  • 00:20:16.280 --> 00:20:18.290
  • HERE, HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:21.140
  • AND GETTING BACK TO THAT.
  • 00:20:21.160 --> 00:20:23.250
  • NOW HERE'S THE PROBLEM WITH HIM,
  • 00:20:23.270 --> 00:20:25.100
  • AND I'LL JUST BE REAL BLUNT.
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:28.150
  • - PLEASE. YOU'RE FROM TEXAS; YOU CAN BE BLUNT.
  • 00:20:28.170 --> 00:20:31.130
  • - I CAN BE REAL BLUNT.
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:33.110
  • RIGHT NOW, OF EVERYONE IN AMERICA WHO PROFESSES ANY
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:37.180
  • RELIGIOUS FAITH WHATEVER, YOU'VE GOT HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:20:37.200 --> 00:20:40.100
  • FAITHS TO CHOOSE FROM.
  • 00:20:40.120 --> 00:20:41.250
  • 90 PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY I AM A CHRISTIAN, SO
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:45.050
  • 90 PERCENT OF THOSE WHO PROFESS FAITH CHOOSE
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:47.090
  • THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:49.040
  • NOW THAT'S ABOUT 72 PERCENT OF AMERICANS
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:50.290
  • SAY I'M A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.190
  • OF THOSE WHO PROFESS CHRISTIANITY, ONLY NINE
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:56.060
  • PERCENT READ THE BIBLE ON A DAILY BASIS.
  • 00:20:56.080 --> 00:20:59.150
  • AND THEN LET'S SAY YOU READ THE BIBLE DAILY AND
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:01.170
  • "I JUST LOVE THE 23RD PSALM, I READ IT EVERY DAY."
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:04.100
  • OKAY, LET ME ASK YOU A DIFFERENT QUESTION.
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:06.110
  • HAVE YOU EVER READ THE BIBLE FROM COVER TO COVER?
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:09.010
  • YOU'RE TALKING THREE PERCENT OF AMERICANS WHO
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:10.290
  • HAVE EVER READ THE FULL BIBLE COVER TO COVER.
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:13.100
  • SO WHAT HAPPENS IS WE DON'T KNOW WHAT GOD SAYS
  • 00:21:13.120 --> 00:21:16.200
  • AND WE LOVE JESUS, AND SO WHAT WE DO IS WE
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:19.250
  • CONFORM GOD TO OUR IMAGE.
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:22.060
  • WHATEVER WE'RE DOING, GOD LOVES ME, HE ACCEPTS ME,
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:24.250
  • HE UNDERSTANDS THE TEMPTATIONS I HAVE, SO
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:27.080
  • THEREFORE WE ENDORSE OUR LIFESTYLE BY CONFORMING
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:31.170
  • HIM TO OUR IMAGE BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:21:31.190 --> 00:21:34.000
  • SO AT THIS POINT, WE'RE AT A POINT WHERE THE TWO
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:36.240
  • OUT OF THREE CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THERE IS NO
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.130
  • ABSOLUTE MORAL TRUTH.
  • 00:21:39.150 --> 00:21:41.280
  • I'M SORRY, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE TEN
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:43.160
  • MORAL TRUTHS; END OF STORY RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:45.190
  • GOD WROTE THEM DOWN.
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:46.280
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS YOU DON'T COMMIT ARSON,
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:49.020
  • THAT'S A MORAL IMPERATIVE.
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:50.170
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS YOU DON'T COMMIT INFANTICIDE,
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:53.130
  • WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS YOU DON'T COMMIT RAPE,
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:21:55.210
  • ALL OF THOSE ARE MORAL ABSOLUTES.
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:57.220
  • THERE'S NO ALTERNATIVE FOR A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:59.230
  • THOSE ARE MORAL ABSOLUTES.
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.150
  • THE TWO OUT OF THREE CHRISTIANS BECAUSE WE
  • 00:22:01.170 --> 00:22:03.060
  • DON'T KNOW IT'S IN GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:22:03.080 --> 00:22:04.170
  • THAT'S WHERE LUTHER WAS SO KEY IN GETTING THE WORD,
  • 00:22:04.190 --> 00:22:07.150
  • AND BEFORE LUTHER CAME, 250 YEARS BEFORE LUTHER,
  • 00:22:07.170 --> 00:22:11.160
  • GUYS WERE DYING SIMPLY FOR TRYING TO GET THE
  • 00:22:11.180 --> 00:22:14.090
  • BIBLE AVAILABLE TO EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN THEIR OWN
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.170
  • LANGUAGE SO THEY COULD READ IT.
  • 00:22:16.190 --> 00:22:18.020
  • LUTHER WAS ON THE TAIL END OF THE REFORMATION
  • 00:22:18.040 --> 00:22:21.060
  • MOVEMENT BECAUSE WYCLIFFE STARTED IT, AND WYCLIFFE
  • 00:22:21.080 --> 00:22:24.230
  • GETS KILLED, BURNED AT THE STAKE FOR TRYING TO
  • 00:22:24.250 --> 00:22:28.260
  • GET THE BIBLE WHERE PEOPLE CAN READ IT.
  • 00:22:28.280 --> 00:22:31.150
  • SO LUTHER IS AT A POINT IN TIME WHERE FOR 250
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:34.070
  • YEARS THEY'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THE BIBLE AND BE
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:36.030
  • READ, AND HE'S READING THE BIBLE.
  • 00:22:36.050 --> 00:22:38.100
  • AND ONCE HE STARTS READING THE BIBLE, HE
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:39.180
  • CHANGES THE WORLD, BUT IT STARTS WITH KNOWING GOD'S
  • 00:22:39.200 --> 00:22:43.020
  • WORD. AND AT THIS POINT, THE CHURCH WENT OUT
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:46.100
  • TEACHING GOD'S WORD. WE REFUSE TO ADDRESS
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:48.140
  • THE THINGS THAT GOD'S WORD ADDRESSES.
  • 00:22:48.160 --> 00:22:50.130
  • IF THEY'RE IN THE NEWS, WE TAKE THEM OFF THE
  • 00:22:50.150 --> 00:22:52.090
  • TABLE AND SAY THAT'S POLITICAL.
  • 00:22:52.110 --> 00:22:53.200
  • NO, THAT'S BIBLICAL.
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.090
  • WE'RE GOING TO ADDRESS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, AND
  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:57.170
  • IF THAT'S WHAT LUTHER DID, AND THAT'S WHY WE LOOK AT
  • 00:22:57.190 --> 00:23:00.110
  • HIM AS REALLY THE HALLMARK OF THE
  • 00:23:00.130 --> 00:23:02.030
  • REFORMATION, BUT IT STARTED WITH BIBLE
  • 00:23:02.050 --> 00:23:03.250
  • KNOWLEDGE THAT GREW BEFORE THEN, AND THAT'S
  • 00:23:03.270 --> 00:23:06.100
  • WHAT THE CHURCH HAS TO DO NOW.
  • 00:23:06.120 --> 00:23:07.180
  • NOW THIS IS WHERE I'M FINDING THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:23:07.200 --> 00:23:09.040
  • BECAUSE KIDS, MILLENNIALS, I CAN'T TELL
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:11.030
  • YOU, WE HAVE EVERY TWO WEEKS IN THE SUMMER WE
  • 00:23:11.050 --> 00:23:13.260
  • TAKE IN 50 MILLENNIALS, 50 KIDS AGES 18 - 25
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:17.120
  • AND WE TAKE THEM THROUGH THE STUFF THEY DON'T GET
  • 00:23:17.140 --> 00:23:19.200
  • IN HISTORY, THE STUFF THEY DON'T GET IN BIBLE.
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:21.260
  • AND A LOT OF THESE ARE SECULAR KIDS, AND THEY
  • 00:23:21.280 --> 00:23:25.010
  • COME OUT, AND I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TEXTS
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:26.260
  • WE GET, I'M READING MY BIBLE EVERY DAY, I NEVER
  • 00:23:26.280 --> 00:23:29.130
  • HAVE READ SUCH A PRACTICAL BOOK, THERE'S
  • 00:23:29.150 --> 00:23:31.030
  • SO MUCH COOL STUFF IN THERE. AND THEY WERE
  • 00:23:31.050 --> 00:23:32.250
  • KIDS THAT NEVER READ THE BIBLE BEFORE.
  • 00:23:32.270 --> 00:23:34.230
  • SO THERE'S GOOD STUFF.

  • CORRUPTION IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.
  • 00:25:19.000 --> 00:25:22.270
  • ALLEGEDLY, LUTHER POSTS HIS 95 THESES TO THE DOOR
  • 00:25:22.290 --> 00:25:26.200
  • OF WITTENBERG'S CASTLE CHURCH, AN ACTION WHICH
  • 00:25:26.220 --> 00:25:30.060
  • IGNITES A FIRESTORM THROUGHOUT EUROPE AND
  • 00:25:30.080 --> 00:25:32.210

  • OF MARTIN LUTHER AND THE STORY OF REFORMATION.
  • 00:25:47.000 --> 00:25:52.210
  • - IN MODERN TIMES, THERE IS NO MORE IMPORTANT OR
  • 00:25:52.230 --> 00:25:55.050
  • INFLUENTIAL STORY THAN THE STORY OF MARTIN LUTHER
  • 00:25:55.070 --> 00:25:57.210
  • ON THE REFORMATION. THAT'S A FACT.
  • 00:25:57.230 --> 00:25:59.170
  • MOST PEOPLE-- IT'S SO IMPORTANT AND IT HAD SUCH A
  • 00:25:59.190 --> 00:26:02.090
  • WIDE AFFECT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T EVEN REMEMBER
  • 00:26:02.110 --> 00:26:04.280
  • IT. IT'S LIKE WHEN WE SAY ABOUT, IF YOU ASK A 20
  • 00:26:05.000 --> 00:26:07.250
  • YEAR OLD WHO CURED POLIO?
  • 00:26:07.270 --> 00:26:10.060
  • THEY'D BE LIKE I DON'T KNOW, AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:26:10.080 --> 00:26:11.270
  • WHAT'S POLIO? LIKE, YOU TOTALLY TAKE FOR GRANTED
  • 00:26:11.290 --> 00:26:15.130
  • THINGS BECAUSE YOU SAY WELL, WE'VE NEVER HAD
  • 00:26:15.150 --> 00:26:17.250
  • A PROBLEM WITH POLIO. OH, REALLY?
  • 00:26:17.270 --> 00:26:19.050
  • TALK TO YOUR GRANDPARENTS ABOUT POLIO.
  • 00:26:19.070 --> 00:26:20.260
  • THE THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED TODAY NOT ONLY
  • 00:26:20.280 --> 00:26:24.020
  • DIDN'T THEY EXIST IN LUTHER'S TIME, NOBODY
  • 00:26:24.040 --> 00:26:25.280
  • COULD DREAM OF THEM EXISTING.
  • 00:26:26.000 --> 00:26:27.200
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DID IN THIS BUILDING AND
  • 00:26:27.220 --> 00:26:29.220
  • IN THIS TOWN, THE WHOLE WORLD CHANGED.
  • 00:26:29.240 --> 00:26:33.120
  • - WHAT HAPPENED HERE, IN CASE SOMEBODY JUST TUNED IN?
  • 00:26:33.140 --> 00:26:36.050
  • - WELL, 500 YEARS AGO, WHEN HAPPENED HERE WAS
  • 00:26:36.070 --> 00:26:38.260
  • THAT A YOUNG MONK NAMED MARTIN LUTHER NAILED A
  • 00:26:38.280 --> 00:26:41.240
  • DOCUMENT ON THIS DOOR.
  • 00:26:41.260 --> 00:26:44.210
  • THAT DOCUMENT BECAME SO FAMOUS THAT THIS BRONZE
  • 00:26:44.230 --> 00:26:47.000
  • DOOR IS NOW A REPRODUCTION OF THE DOCUMENT.
  • 00:26:47.020 --> 00:26:49.270
  • THE 95 THESES HAVE BEEN REPRODUCED IN BRONZE.
  • 00:26:49.290 --> 00:26:52.270
  • ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SOME YEARS AGO THEY MADE THAT.
  • 00:26:52.290 --> 00:26:55.120
  • BUT IT WAS SIMPLE WOODEN DOORS, AND HE TACKED UP A
  • 00:26:55.140 --> 00:26:58.240
  • DOCUMENT BECAUSE HE WANTED PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:26:58.260 --> 00:27:02.050
  • IN THE ACADEMIC COMMUNITY BECAUSE THERE'S A
  • 00:27:02.070 --> 00:27:04.080
  • UNIVERSITY HERE IN WITTENBERG.
  • 00:27:04.100 --> 00:27:06.040
  • HE WAS A MONK BUT ALSO A THEOLOGY PROFESSOR.
  • 00:27:06.060 --> 00:27:08.160
  • HE WANTED PEOPLE TO DEBATE THE ISSUE OF INDULGENCES,
  • 00:27:08.180 --> 00:27:11.190
  • WHICH WAS A PRACTICE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
  • 00:27:11.210 --> 00:27:14.200
  • AT THE TIME, WHICH HE COULD SEE WAS CAUSING
  • 00:27:14.220 --> 00:27:16.290
  • TROUBLE WITH THE FAITHFUL, SOMETHING
  • 00:27:17.010 --> 00:27:19.060
  • WRONG, AND HE SAID IF WE HAVE A DEBATE ON THIS
  • 00:27:19.080 --> 00:27:21.240
  • ISSUE, IT WILL HELP US STRAIGHTEN OUT A WHOLE
  • 00:27:21.260 --> 00:27:24.070
  • BUNCH OF THINGS.
  • 00:27:24.090 --> 00:27:25.210
  • AND IN FACT, HE POSTED-- 500 YEARS AGO, HE POSTED
  • 00:27:25.230 --> 00:27:28.180
  • THAT DOCUMENT HERE AT THE TIME REALLY HAVING NO
  • 00:27:28.200 --> 00:27:31.080
  • CLUE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:27:31.100 --> 00:27:33.280
  • NOW WE REALIZE THIS IS ONE OF THE SEMINAL
  • 00:27:34.000 --> 00:27:35.250
  • MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD LITERALLY. HUGE.
  • 00:27:35.270 --> 00:27:40.240
  • AND THAT LED TO A DEBATE, AND IT ULTIMATELY LED TO
  • 00:27:40.260 --> 00:27:46.190
  • HIS EXCOMMUNICATION BY THE POPE, AND IT
  • 00:27:46.210 --> 00:27:48.180
  • LED TO PROTESTANTISM.
  • 00:27:48.200 --> 00:27:50.230
  • SO IF YOU'RE PART OF ANY CHURCH THAT'S NOT
  • 00:27:50.250 --> 00:27:53.030
  • EASTERN ORTHODOX OR ROMAN CATHOLIC, IF YOU'RE ANY
  • 00:27:53.050 --> 00:27:56.220
  • KIND OF PROTESTANT, IT BEGAN LITERALLY IN THIS SPOT.
  • 00:27:56.240 --> 00:28:00.190
  • HARD FOR US TO GET OUR HEADS AROUND IT.
  • 00:28:00.210 --> 00:28:02.110
  • IT BEGAN HERE 500 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:28:02.130 --> 00:28:04.190
  • HE DID NOT HAVE THE SLIGHTEST INKLING THAT
  • 00:28:04.210 --> 00:28:07.150
  • IT WOULD BE HISTORIC.
  • 00:28:07.170 --> 00:28:09.100
  • SO WHENEVER YOU SEE ILLUSTRATIONS OF LUTHER
  • 00:28:09.120 --> 00:28:12.180
  • POUNDING THE THESES ONTO THIS DOOR OR WHATEVER, IT
  • 00:28:12.200 --> 00:28:16.070
  • LOOKS LIKE HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING, LIKE HE WAS
  • 00:28:16.090 --> 00:28:18.260
  • SAYING EVERYBODY NEEDS TO READ THIS!
  • 00:28:18.280 --> 00:28:20.230
  • HE WAS LITERALLY TACKING SOMETHING ONTO A BULLETIN
  • 00:28:20.250 --> 00:28:23.280
  • BOARD RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:28:24.000 --> 00:28:25.180
  • THIS WAS THE BULLETIN BOARD OF THE DAY.
  • 00:28:25.200 --> 00:28:27.210
  • AND HE MAY NOT HAVE EVEN DONE IT.
  • 00:28:27.230 --> 00:28:29.170
  • HE MIGHT HAVE GIVEN IT TO THE CHURCH CUSTODIAN AND
  • 00:28:29.190 --> 00:28:31.250
  • SAID PLEASE POST THIS, OR HE MIGHT HAVE DONE IT
  • 00:28:31.270 --> 00:28:34.080
  • WITH PASTE WHICH IS NOT VERY DRAMATIC. RIGHT?
  • 00:28:34.100 --> 00:28:36.180
  • IT DOESN'T HAVE THAT THUNDEROUS POUNDING,
  • 00:28:36.200 --> 00:28:40.040
  • RIGHT? RIGHT?
  • 00:28:40.060 --> 00:28:41.120
  • IT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED THAT WAY.
  • 00:28:41.140 --> 00:28:42.270
  • BUT THE POINT IS THAT THAT SET SOMETHING IN MOTION.
  • 00:28:42.290 --> 00:28:46.010
  • WE HAVE NEVER GONE BACK.
  • 00:28:46.030 --> 00:28:47.120
  • IN FACT, I'LL GO WAY PAST CHURCH STUFF.
  • 00:28:47.140 --> 00:28:49.290
  • WHAT HE DID HERE AND WHAT HAPPENED AS A RESULT
  • 00:28:50.010 --> 00:28:53.090
  • CREATED THE MODERN WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.
  • 00:28:53.110 --> 00:28:57.160
  • IT DIDN'T JUST CREATE PROTESTANTISM.
  • 00:28:57.180 --> 00:28:59.130
  • IT CREATED EVERYTHING WE TAKE FOR GRANTED
  • 00:28:59.150 --> 00:29:01.160
  • IN THE MODERN WORLD.
  • 00:29:01.180 --> 00:29:02.260
  • THE CONCEPT OF LIBERTY, WHICH WE IN AMERICA
  • 00:29:02.280 --> 00:29:05.010
  • THINK WE INVENTED THAT.
  • 00:29:05.030 --> 00:29:06.240
  • NONE OF THAT WAS POSSIBLE UNTIL THIS HAPPENED, SO
  • 00:29:06.260 --> 00:29:11.080
  • THE RAMIFICATIONS OF WHAT LUTHER DID, WHICH HE
  • 00:29:11.100 --> 00:29:14.080
  • HIMSELF DID NOT FORESEE, OPENED THE DOOR TO
  • 00:29:14.100 --> 00:29:18.040
  • MODERNITY, TO THE FUTURE.
  • 00:29:18.060 --> 00:29:20.040
  • SO FOR THE LAST 500 YEARS, WE'VE BEEN LIVING
  • 00:29:20.060 --> 00:29:23.240
  • IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORLD THAN THE WORLD THAT
  • 00:29:23.260 --> 00:29:26.180
  • EXISTED BEFORE LUTHER DID WHAT HE DID HERE.
  • 00:29:26.200 --> 00:29:29.090
  • SO I WANT TO UNPACK SOME OF THAT AS WE GO.
  • 00:29:29.110 --> 00:29:31.280
  • THE THING THAT SET IT OFF IS THIS THING, I SHOULD
  • 00:29:32.000 --> 00:29:33.290
  • EXPLAIN, CALLED INDULGENCES.
  • 00:29:34.010 --> 00:29:35.180
  • THIS JUST STARTED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:29:35.200 --> 00:29:37.220
  • BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ARE INDULGENCES?
  • 00:29:37.240 --> 00:29:39.090
  • INDULGENCE IS-- IT'S WEIRD THING.
  • 00:29:39.110 --> 00:29:41.110
  • IMAGINE IF YOU HAVE THIS SYSTEM IN THE CATHOLIC
  • 00:29:41.130 --> 00:29:45.010
  • CHURCH WHERE PEOPLE SAY OKAY, YOU'VE SINNED,
  • 00:29:45.030 --> 00:29:48.020
  • WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT?
  • 00:29:48.040 --> 00:29:49.140
  • WELL, THE PRIEST IS GONNA SAY WELL, IT'S NOT ENOUGH
  • 00:29:49.160 --> 00:29:51.030
  • JUST TO A SAY YOU'RE SORRY. YOU NEED TO DO SOME
  • 00:29:51.050 --> 00:29:52.220
  • KIND OF PENANCE TOO, SOMETHING LIKE THAT,
  • 00:29:52.240 --> 00:29:55.020
  • SO WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT THINGS YOU CAN DO?
  • 00:29:55.040 --> 00:29:56.270
  • WELL YOU COULD SAY A HUNDRED HAIL MARY'S, OR
  • 00:29:56.290 --> 00:29:58.180
  • YOU COULD DO THIS OR THAT, OR YOU COULD GIVE
  • 00:29:58.200 --> 00:30:01.050
  • MONEY TO SOME WORK OF GOD, RIGHT?
  • 00:30:01.070 --> 00:30:04.230
  • OR YOU COULD GIVE MONEY TO THE CHURCH, OR YOU
  • 00:30:04.250 --> 00:30:07.150
  • COULD GIVE MONEY TO A BUILDING PROJECT.
  • 00:30:07.170 --> 00:30:09.060
  • AT THE TIME, THEY WERE TRYING TO BUILD
  • 00:30:09.080 --> 00:30:10.080
  • ST. PETERS IN ROME.
  • 00:30:10.100 --> 00:30:11.210
  • HAVE YOU HEARD OF ST. PETERS? BIGGEST CHURCH.
  • 00:30:11.230 --> 00:30:13.210
  • SO THEY NEEDED MONEY TO BUILD ST. PETERS IN ROME
  • 00:30:13.230 --> 00:30:18.210
  • BECAUSE THE POPE AT THE TIME WAS LIKE SPENDING
  • 00:30:18.230 --> 00:30:20.080
  • MONEY LIKE A DRUNKEN SAILOR TRYING TO
  • 00:30:20.100 --> 00:30:21.150
  • MAKE ROME AMAZING.
  • 00:30:21.170 --> 00:30:23.190
  • - LAURIE: IT'S LIKE GETTING A TICKET AND
  • 00:30:23.210 --> 00:30:24.250
  • HAVING TO PAY A FINE.
  • 00:30:24.270 --> 00:30:25.270
  • - EXACTLY. THANK YOU.
  • 00:30:25.290 --> 00:30:27.070
  • - YOU'RE WELCOME.
  • 00:30:27.090 --> 00:30:28.070
  • - THAT WAS GOOD.
  • 00:30:28.090 --> 00:30:29.160
  • BASICALLY THEY SAID HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:30:29.180 --> 00:30:32.010
  • IF YOU BUY AN INDULGENCE, YOU SPEND MONEY, GIVE TO
  • 00:30:32.030 --> 00:30:34.130
  • THE CHURCH, WE WILL GIVE YOU KIND OF LIKE A
  • 00:30:34.150 --> 00:30:37.190
  • "GET OUT OF JAIL FREE" CARD, RIGHT?
  • 00:30:37.210 --> 00:30:39.250
  • NOW CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW QUICKLY THIS GET ABUSED,
  • 00:30:39.270 --> 00:30:41.170
  • THIS IDEA?
  • 00:30:41.190 --> 00:30:43.070
  • SO THE PRINCE OF THIS AREA, THE MAN WHO BUILT
  • 00:30:43.090 --> 00:30:46.250
  • THIS CASTLE CHURCH AND WHO LIVED HERE, HE SAID I
  • 00:30:46.270 --> 00:30:50.030
  • DON'T WANT INDULGENCES PREACHED IN MY TOWN FOR A
  • 00:30:50.050 --> 00:30:52.160
  • NUMBER OF REASONS. COMPLICATED.
  • 00:30:52.180 --> 00:30:54.080
  • BUT THE ARCHBISHOP VERY CLOSE BY, HE NEEDED MONEY
  • 00:30:54.100 --> 00:30:59.080
  • BADLY, OKAY. YOU CAN SEE HOW GREED ENTERS IN.
  • 00:30:59.100 --> 00:31:01.220
  • HE SAYS I NEED MONEY BADLY.
  • 00:31:01.240 --> 00:31:04.150
  • SO THE POPE SAYS TO HIM I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, IF
  • 00:31:04.170 --> 00:31:06.000
  • YOU HAVE INDULGENCES PREACHED IN YOUR TOWN,
  • 00:31:06.020 --> 00:31:07.230
  • WE'LL SPLIT IT WITH YOU.
  • 00:31:07.250 --> 00:31:09.170
  • WE IN ROME WILL TAKE HALF TO BUILD ST. PETERS BUT
  • 00:31:09.190 --> 00:31:12.210
  • WE'RE GONNA GIVE YOU THE OTHER HALF TO PAY BACK
  • 00:31:12.230 --> 00:31:15.210
  • THE LOAN YOU OWE TO THE VATICAN SO THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:31:15.230 --> 00:31:19.240
  • GET BLAH BLAH BLAH. THAT'S ANOTHER STORY.
  • 00:31:19.260 --> 00:31:22.000
  • IT'S ALL IN THE BOOK. AND SO HE SAYS OKAY.
  • 00:31:22.020 --> 00:31:25.060
  • SO THEY START PREACHING INDULGENCES 25 MILES
  • 00:31:25.080 --> 00:31:27.130
  • AWAY FROM HERE, OKAY?
  • 00:31:27.150 --> 00:31:29.030
  • PEOPLE ARE SO CRAZY FOR INDULGENCES, THEY SAID
  • 00:31:29.050 --> 00:31:32.000
  • YOU MEAN LIKE I CAN PAY SOME MONEY AND I CAN
  • 00:31:32.020 --> 00:31:34.280
  • GET LIKE MY MOTHER OUT OF PURGATORY?
  • 00:31:35.000 --> 00:31:37.130
  • I LOVE MY MOTHER, SHE'S SUFFERING IN PURGATORY,
  • 00:31:37.150 --> 00:31:40.100
  • I CAN JUST PAY MONEY AND GET HER OUT OF PURGATORY?
  • 00:31:40.120 --> 00:31:42.170
  • I'M GONNA GET IN A WAGON OR HORSE AND TRAVEL 25
  • 00:31:42.190 --> 00:31:45.090
  • MILES TO OTTERBERG AND I'M GONNA DO THAT.
  • 00:31:45.110 --> 00:31:47.280
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
  • 00:31:48.000 --> 00:31:49.090
  • PEOPLE WERE FLOCKING FROM THIS TOWN TO THE NEARBY
  • 00:31:49.110 --> 00:31:52.160
  • TOWNS WHERE THESE INDULGENCES WERE PREACHED.
  • 00:31:52.180 --> 00:31:54.240
  • LUTHER WAS A PASTOR SO HE'S IN THE CHURCH, THE
  • 00:31:54.260 --> 00:31:58.140
  • CITY CHURCH OVER THERE OR THE CASTLE CHURCH HERE.
  • 00:31:58.160 --> 00:32:00.170
  • HE'S HEARING PEOPLE'S CONFESSIONS AS A HUMBLE
  • 00:32:00.190 --> 00:32:02.180
  • PASTOR, AS A PRIEST, AND PEOPLE, THEY GIVE THEIR
  • 00:32:02.200 --> 00:32:06.040
  • CONFESSION, AND THEN THEY PULL THIS THING OUT OF
  • 00:32:06.060 --> 00:32:08.000
  • THEIR POCKET. GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD.
  • 00:32:08.020 --> 00:32:10.040
  • HEY, YOU WANT ME TO DO A HUNDRED HAIL MARY'S BUT
  • 00:32:10.060 --> 00:32:12.020
  • WHAT ABOUT THIS? BOOM!
  • 00:32:12.040 --> 00:32:14.010
  • SO HE STARTS REALIZING NOT ONLY ARE INDULGENCES
  • 00:32:14.030 --> 00:32:17.100
  • MESSED UP IN EVERY THEOLOGICAL WAY, BUT IT'S
  • 00:32:17.120 --> 00:32:19.290
  • UNDERMINING THE FAITH OF THE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:32:20.010 --> 00:32:21.280
  • THEY'RE THINKING THAT I PAY MONEY AND I CAN DO
  • 00:32:22.000 --> 00:32:23.270
  • WHAT I WANT. AND THEY CAN PAY IN ADVANCE AND GET
  • 00:32:23.290 --> 00:32:26.290
  • AN INDULGENCE, THAT IF I GO HIT SOMEBODY,
  • 00:32:27.010 --> 00:32:29.280
  • I CAN PAY IN ADVANCE. IT REALLY BECAME SICK.
  • 00:32:30.000 --> 00:32:33.000
  • SO LUTHER SAYS THIS IS BAD.
  • 00:32:33.020 --> 00:32:35.200
  • IT IS MY JOB AS A PROFESSOR OF BIBLE
  • 00:32:35.220 --> 00:32:37.260
  • STUDIES AT THIS UNIVERSITY TO LET THE
  • 00:32:37.280 --> 00:32:39.170
  • CHURCH KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING, AND WE'VE GOT
  • 00:32:39.190 --> 00:32:41.240
  • TO FIX IT. AND HE WAS SURE THAT THE POPE AND
  • 00:32:41.260 --> 00:32:44.080
  • EVERYBODY WOULD THANK HIM FOR CLEARING THIS UP.
  • 00:32:44.100 --> 00:32:46.230
  • DIDN'T HAPPEN. IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
  • 00:32:46.250 --> 00:32:50.020
  • IT GOT A LITTLE COMPLICATED.
  • 00:32:50.040 --> 00:32:51.180
  • THE GUY WHO WAS PREACHING THE INDULGENCES, THIS GUY
  • 00:32:51.200 --> 00:32:54.060
  • TRAVELING FROM TOWN TO TOWN, HE GOT OFFENDED.
  • 00:32:54.080 --> 00:32:56.160
  • HE STARTS ATTACKING LUTHER AS A HERETIC.
  • 00:32:56.180 --> 00:32:58.200
  • BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, IT ESCALATED INTO LUTHER'S A
  • 00:32:58.220 --> 00:33:03.130
  • HERETIC AND HE NEEDS TO COME TO ROME AND FACE THE
  • 00:33:03.150 --> 00:33:06.030
  • MUSIC. NOW HE UNDERSTANDS I'M IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:33:06.050 --> 00:33:08.190
  • I'M GONNA GO TO ROME BEFORE THE INQUISITION.
  • 00:33:08.210 --> 00:33:11.070
  • I COULD VERY WELL BE BURNED AT THE STAKE.
  • 00:33:11.090 --> 00:33:15.110
  • SO IT IMMEDIATELY BECAME THIS BIG CHAOTIC MESS
  • 00:33:15.130 --> 00:33:20.070
  • THAT WENT WAY BEYOND THIS ISSUE OF INDULGENCES.
  • 00:33:20.090 --> 00:33:23.010
  • IT OPENED UP EVERY OTHER THEOLOGICAL DOOR, SO IT
  • 00:33:23.030 --> 00:33:26.020
  • QUICKLY BECAME BIG NEWS, NOT JUST HERE IN GERMANY
  • 00:33:26.040 --> 00:33:30.160
  • BUT EVERYWHERE. PEOPLE STARTED TALKING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:33:30.180 --> 00:33:32.210
  • AND THAT'S KIND OF HOW THE TROUBLE HAPPENED IS
  • 00:33:32.230 --> 00:33:34.130
  • THAT THE PUBLICITY JUMPED THE FENCE, RIGHT,
  • 00:33:34.150 --> 00:33:36.260
  • AND BEFORE HE KNEW IT, EVERYBODY FOR HUNDREDS OF
  • 00:33:36.280 --> 00:33:40.080
  • MILES ARE BAD MOUTHING THE CHURCH, BAD MOUTHING
  • 00:33:40.100 --> 00:33:43.110
  • ALL THESE THE CORRUPTION AND ALL THIS DIFFERENT
  • 00:33:43.130 --> 00:33:46.100
  • STUFF, AND SO IN A WAY THE VATICAN AND THE POPE
  • 00:33:46.120 --> 00:33:49.160
  • HELD LUTHER RESPONSIBLE, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS
  • 00:33:49.180 --> 00:33:53.040
  • HIS INTENTION TO BLESS THE CHURCH.
  • 00:33:53.060 --> 00:33:55.040
  • THERE'S NO DOUBT THAT HIS INTENTION WAS TO BLESS
  • 00:33:55.060 --> 00:33:57.030
  • THE CHURCH, NOT TO GET IN AN ARGUMENT.
  • 00:33:57.050 --> 00:33:58.280
  • HE WAS A FAITHFUL SON OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:33:59.000 --> 00:34:02.080
  • - YOU'RE MAKING A STORY UNFOLD.
  • 00:34:02.100 --> 00:34:06.010
  • THERE IS A POINT IN TIME THOUGH, ERIC, WHERE
  • 00:34:06.030 --> 00:34:10.050
  • ULTIMATELY IT FEELS LIKE THIS STORY FINALLY,
  • 00:34:10.070 --> 00:34:15.270
  • IF YOU BOIL IT DOWN AND BOIL IT DOWN, IT'S REALLY
  • 00:34:15.290 --> 00:34:19.040
  • ABOUT THE AMAZING 500 YEAR DISCOVERY OF
  • 00:34:19.060 --> 00:34:22.180
  • GRACE THROUGH FAITH.
  • 00:34:22.200 --> 00:34:25.150
  • - IT'S THE REDISCOVERY OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS
  • 00:34:25.170 --> 00:34:27.190
  • CHRIST WHICH HAD BEEN HIDDEN UNDER DEAD RELIGION.
  • 00:34:27.210 --> 00:34:30.080
  • I MEAN LAURIE WAS JUST SAYING IT BEFORE WE
  • 00:34:30.100 --> 00:34:32.170
  • STARTED SHOOTING THAT.
  • 00:34:32.190 --> 00:34:34.030
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, BECAUSE OF SINFUL MAN,
  • 00:34:34.050 --> 00:34:37.110
  • WE ALWAYS DEVOLVE BACK TO OUR SINFUL WAYS.
  • 00:34:37.130 --> 00:34:40.220
  • WE MAKE TRADITION WHAT WAS ONCE ALIVE-- WE KILL
  • 00:34:40.240 --> 00:34:44.070
  • WHAT WAS ONCE ALIVE UNDER TRADITION.
  • 00:34:44.090 --> 00:34:46.120
  • WE BURY IT UNDER TRADITION.
  • 00:34:46.140 --> 00:34:47.260
  • WELL IMAGINE LUTHER GROWS UP IN THE MOST CORRUPT
  • 00:34:47.280 --> 00:34:53.160
  • TIME OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
  • 00:34:53.180 --> 00:34:56.260
  • AND ANY CATHOLIC WOULD AGREE THAT THE SIX POPES
  • 00:34:56.280 --> 00:35:00.170
  • DURING THE TIME OF LUTHER RIGHT BEFORE HIM, IT WAS
  • 00:35:00.190 --> 00:35:03.140
  • THE NADIR, IT WAS THE PIT OF CORRUPTION.
  • 00:35:03.160 --> 00:35:07.220
  • THEY HAD BECOME AS WORLDLY AS YOU CAN BE,
  • 00:35:07.240 --> 00:35:10.060
  • AND CATHOLICS WOULD SAY THAT PROVES THE STRENGTH
  • 00:35:10.080 --> 00:35:13.050
  • OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, THAT EVEN WITH POPES LIKE
  • 00:35:13.070 --> 00:35:15.250
  • THAT, THEY DIDN'T CHANGE DOCTRINE, WHICH YOU HAVE
  • 00:35:15.270 --> 00:35:17.230
  • TO TIP YOUR HAT TO THEM.
  • 00:35:17.250 --> 00:35:19.110
  • THEY DIDN'T CHANGE DOCTRINE THE WAY A LOT
  • 00:35:19.130 --> 00:35:22.020
  • OF PEOPLE SAY WE CAN JUST CHANGE DOCTRINE.
  • 00:35:22.040 --> 00:35:23.290
  • THEY NEVER CHANGED DOCTRINE.
  • 00:35:24.010 --> 00:35:25.150
  • BUT THERE WERE PEOPLE WITHIN THE CHURCH AT THE
  • 00:35:25.170 --> 00:35:28.230
  • TIME WHO KNEW HOW CORRUPT IT WAS.
  • 00:35:28.250 --> 00:35:30.170
  • THEY KNEW REFORMATION WAS NECESSARY.
  • 00:35:30.190 --> 00:35:32.240
  • THE ONLY QUESTION WAS HOW?
  • 00:35:32.260 --> 00:35:34.190
  • HOW ARE WE GONNA GET BACK TO THE ROOTS?
  • 00:35:34.210 --> 00:35:37.060
  • HOW ARE WE GOING GET BACK TO THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL?
  • 00:35:37.080 --> 00:35:39.040
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, AND THIS IS MAYBE
  • 00:35:39.060 --> 00:35:41.180
  • SOMETIMES AS CHRISTIANS WE DON'T THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:35:41.200 --> 00:35:43.260
  • YOU THINK EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD SEEMS TO KNOW
  • 00:35:43.280 --> 00:35:46.220
  • SOMETHING'S WRONG, RIGHT?
  • 00:35:46.240 --> 00:35:48.210
  • THAT'S WHERE YOU GET ALL THE RELIGIONS IN THE
  • 00:35:48.230 --> 00:35:50.130
  • WORLD FROM PAGAN RELIGIONS, THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:35:50.150 --> 00:35:51.290
  • KNOWS SOMETHING'S WRONG.
  • 00:35:52.010 --> 00:35:53.170
  • WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO GET RIGHT WITH THE
  • 00:35:53.190 --> 00:35:55.130
  • GODS, WITH THE UNIVERSE, WITH WHATEVER IT IS.
  • 00:35:55.150 --> 00:35:58.040
  • THEY KNOW SOMETHING'S WRONG, SO THEY CREATE
  • 00:35:58.060 --> 00:36:00.140
  • THIS THING CALLED RELIGION, RIGHT?
  • 00:36:00.160 --> 00:36:02.080
  • SO IF YOU SACRIFICE THIS ANIMAL AND DO THIS AND
  • 00:36:02.100 --> 00:36:04.020
  • DON'T DO THAT AND WHATEVER, YOU KIND OF
  • 00:36:04.040 --> 00:36:06.050
  • WORK YOUR WAY UP SO THAT THE GODS AREN'T ANGRY.
  • 00:36:06.070 --> 00:36:09.040
  • AND THOSE ARE THE RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:36:09.060 --> 00:36:11.230
  • THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:36:11.250 --> 00:36:13.270
  • AND THE RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD IS THAT WE HAVE AN
  • 00:36:13.290 --> 00:36:15.230
  • ANSWER TO RELIGION.
  • 00:36:15.250 --> 00:36:17.240
  • WE KNOW THAT RELIGION ISN'T THE ANSWER, RIGHT?
  • 00:36:17.260 --> 00:36:19.230
  • ALL THE LAW OF THE OLD TESTAMENT IS ULTIMATELY
  • 00:36:19.250 --> 00:36:22.290
  • DESIGNED TO SHOW US WE CAN'T KEEP THE LAW, THAT
  • 00:36:23.010 --> 00:36:25.200
  • WE WILL NEVER DO IT.
  • 00:36:25.220 --> 00:36:27.190
  • JESUS SAID, SO YOU HAVEN'T COMMITTED
  • 00:36:27.210 --> 00:36:29.040
  • ADULTERY?
  • 00:36:29.060 --> 00:36:30.240
  • WELL, GOOD FOR YOU, BUT IF YOU'VE COMMITTED
  • 00:36:30.260 --> 00:36:32.120
  • ADULTERY IN YOUR MIND, YOU'VE COMMITTED ADULTERY.
  • 00:36:32.140 --> 00:36:34.040
  • SO YOU'VE NEVER ACTUALLY MURDERED ANYBODY?
  • 00:36:34.060 --> 00:36:35.220
  • WELL, THAT'S GREAT, BUT I SAY UNTO YOU THAT IF YOU
  • 00:36:35.240 --> 00:36:37.120
  • CURSE SOMEONE IN YOUR MIND, YOU'VE COMMITTED
  • 00:36:37.140 --> 00:36:39.040
  • MURDER IN YOUR MIND.
  • 00:36:39.060 --> 00:36:40.230
  • SO JESUS CALLS US TO THIS IMPOSSIBLE STANDARD.
  • 00:36:40.250 --> 00:36:42.280
  • HE SAYS, YOU UNDERSTAND YOU CAN'T DO IT ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:36:43.000 --> 00:36:46.080
  • NO ONE CAN BE PERFECT.
  • 00:36:46.100 --> 00:36:48.140
  • THAT'S WHY I'VE COME, TO PAY THE DEBT AND TO MAKE
  • 00:36:48.160 --> 00:36:51.150
  • A WAY THAT BY FAITH, NOT BY ACTIONS AND WORKS AND
  • 00:36:51.170 --> 00:36:54.170
  • RELIGIOUS ACTS AND PRAYERS, BUT BY FAITH,
  • 00:36:54.190 --> 00:36:57.270
  • YOU CAN APPROPRIATE WHAT I, JESUS, HAVE DONE FOR YOU.
  • 00:36:57.290 --> 00:37:01.230
  • SO THAT'S THE ANSWER.
  • 00:37:01.250 --> 00:37:03.200
  • THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:37:03.220 --> 00:37:05.120
  • WHEN LUTHER WAS REALIZING THIS PROBLEM THAT I NEED
  • 00:37:05.140 --> 00:37:09.040
  • TO GET CLOSE TO GOD, THE WAY PROVIDED, AT THE
  • 00:37:09.060 --> 00:37:11.190
  • TIME, WAS NOT WORKING.
  • 00:37:11.210 --> 00:37:14.110
  • HE BECAME MORE -- THE MORE HE TRIED TO DO IT,
  • 00:37:14.130 --> 00:37:17.060
  • THE MORE FRUSTRATED HE BECAME UNTIL HE
  • 00:37:17.080 --> 00:37:19.120
  • REDISCOVERED -- WHAT HAD BEEN HIDING FOR CENTURIES
  • 00:37:19.140 --> 00:37:22.110
  • BURIED UNDER BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS AND GOLD AND
  • 00:37:22.130 --> 00:37:26.080
  • IVORY AND ALL KINDS OF TRADITION WAS THIS
  • 00:37:26.100 --> 00:37:28.290
  • BEAUTIFUL SIMPLE THING CALLED THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:37:29.010 --> 00:37:31.170
  • JESUS THAT SAYS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE IN
  • 00:37:31.190 --> 00:37:35.120
  • YOUR HEART THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD WHO DIED
  • 00:37:35.140 --> 00:37:38.190
  • FOR YOU, WHO PAID YOUR DEBT, WHO ROSE FROM THE
  • 00:37:38.210 --> 00:37:42.130
  • DEAD AND WHO MADE A WAY FOR YOU TO GO WITH HIM
  • 00:37:42.150 --> 00:37:47.050
  • INTO PARADISE FOREVER. FAITH.
  • 00:37:47.070 --> 00:37:49.130
  • WHEN LUTHER DISCOVERED THIS, HE ALMOST WENT
  • 00:37:49.150 --> 00:37:52.040
  • CRAZY BECAUSE HE SAID, HOW IS IT POSSIBLE WE'VE
  • 00:37:52.060 --> 00:37:54.270
  • BEEN MISSING THIS FOR CENTURIES?
  • 00:37:54.290 --> 00:37:56.270
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:37:56.290 --> 00:37:58.190
  • - SO YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT HE WENT HALF CRAZY.
  • 00:37:58.210 --> 00:38:01.030
  • ANYBODY WHO REALLY, REALLY SEES THE LORD, YOU
  • 00:38:01.050 --> 00:38:03.210
  • KIND OF GO HALF CRAZY BECAUSE YOU'RE SAYING,
  • 00:38:03.230 --> 00:38:06.040
  • THIS IS SO AMAZING. I'VE GOT TO TELL EVERYBODY.
  • 00:38:06.060 --> 00:38:08.120
  • I DON'T CARE IF I DIE. GO AHEAD AND KILL ME.
  • 00:38:08.140 --> 00:38:11.090
  • - THE WORLD REALLY CHANGED.
  • 00:38:11.110 --> 00:38:14.130
  • PRIOR TO THAT TIME, YOU HAD KINGS AND SUBJECTS.
  • 00:38:14.150 --> 00:38:21.210
  • THAT'S THE WAY THE WORLD WORKED,
  • 00:38:21.230 --> 00:38:23.040
  • AND EVERY SOCIETY.
  • 00:38:23.060 --> 00:38:24.270
  • THERE WAS RULERS AND PEOPLE THAT FOLLOWED
  • 00:38:24.290 --> 00:38:28.010
  • THOSE RULERS, AND IT WAS REALLY THE IDEA THAT A
  • 00:38:28.030 --> 00:38:32.190
  • MAN WOULD THINK, NO, I'M GOING TO GO TO THE BIBLE,
  • 00:38:32.210 --> 00:38:36.110
  • AND WHATEVER THE BIBLE TELLS ME, NOT WHAT
  • 00:38:36.130 --> 00:38:38.220
  • SOMEBODY ELSE TELLS ME, WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS ME
  • 00:38:38.240 --> 00:38:40.260
  • IS GOING TO RULE MY LIFE. FREE THINKING. SHORTLY THEREAFTER, --
  • 00:38:40.280 --> 00:38:45.170
  • - FREE THINKING CONSTRAINED BY GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:38:45.190 --> 00:38:47.170
  • IT WASN'T THINKERS FREE THINKERS IN THE SENSE OF
  • 00:38:47.190 --> 00:38:49.170
  • THE ATHEIST WHO BELIEVE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:38:49.190 --> 00:38:51.090
  • IT'S FREE THINKING WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:38:51.110 --> 00:38:54.020
  • - OF GOD'S WORD, THAT ULTIMATELY CREATED THE
  • 00:38:54.040 --> 00:38:56.220
  • NATION THAT WE'RE IN NOW.
  • 00:38:56.240 --> 00:38:58.140
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:38:58.160 --> 00:39:00.040
  • - PRIOR TO THAT TIME, THIS KIND OF THINKING
  • 00:39:00.060 --> 00:39:02.110
  • THAT LED TO THE PILGRIMS COMING HERE COULD NOT HAVE EXISTED.
  • 00:39:02.130 --> 00:39:05.220
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:39:05.240 --> 00:39:07.070
  • - ALL RIGHT, SO THERE'S THE CONNECTION POINT.
  • 00:39:07.090 --> 00:39:09.140
  • THAT WAS A REVIVAL.
  • 00:39:09.160 --> 00:39:11.230
  • THAT WAS A REFORMATION, AND IT CHANGED THE WORLD.
  • 00:39:11.250 --> 00:39:15.280
  • - AND THAT'S THE WAY WE SHOULD SAY IT.
  • 00:39:16.000 --> 00:39:17.160
  • WE SHOULD NOT USE THE WORD REVIVAL.
  • 00:39:17.180 --> 00:39:19.050
  • WE SHOULD USE REFORMATION BECAUSE REVIVAL IS A
  • 00:39:19.070 --> 00:39:20.200
  • DECADES' LONG THING.
  • 00:39:20.220 --> 00:39:22.070
  • A REFORMATION WAS A MOVEMENT THAT LASTED
  • 00:39:22.090 --> 00:39:23.280
  • DECADES CENTURIES.
  • 00:39:24.000 --> 00:39:25.190
  • THAT'S THE WAY TO LOOK AT A REVIVAL.
  • 00:39:25.210 --> 00:39:27.020
  • SO WHEN YOU'RE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL NOW, PRAY FOR
  • 00:39:27.040 --> 00:39:29.220
  • IT, BUT JUST REALIZE IT MAY TAKE DECADES
  • 00:39:29.240 --> 00:39:31.150
  • TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:39:31.170 --> 00:39:33.030
  • - OKAY. FOR THOSE THAT JUST JOINED US, DO A MINUTE ON
  • 00:39:33.050 --> 00:39:36.260
  • WHAT IS A REVIVAL AND WHY YOU THINK WE'RE IN ONE NOW.
  • 00:39:36.280 --> 00:39:41.280
  • - A REVIVAL IS A RETURN TO A LOVE FOR GOD'S WORD
  • 00:39:42.000 --> 00:39:44.230
  • AND TRYING TO LIVE IT OUT AND APPLY IT IN
  • 00:39:44.250 --> 00:39:47.020
  • YOUR DAILY LIFE.
  • 00:39:47.040 --> 00:39:48.220
  • AND WHAT THAT LEADS TO IS THE GROWTH OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:39:48.240 --> 00:39:50.180
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE SAY, MAN, I LOVE THE WAY YOU'RE
  • 00:39:50.200 --> 00:39:52.130
  • HANDLING YOUR KIDS.
  • 00:39:52.150 --> 00:39:54.020
  • I GOT REAL -- SHOW ME HOW YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:39:54.040 --> 00:39:56.080
  • SO YOU TAKE ME TO THE BIBLE AND SHOW ME.
  • 00:39:56.100 --> 00:39:58.050
  • I LOVE THE WAY YOU RUN YOUR BUSINESS.
  • 00:39:58.070 --> 00:40:00.000
  • IT'S SUCH A DIFFERENT -- HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:40:00.020 --> 00:40:01.200
  • AND SO WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU START LIVING
  • 00:40:01.220 --> 00:40:03.140
  • OUT YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:40:03.160 --> 00:40:05.070
  • PEOPLE SEE THAT AND SAY, I WANT THAT.
  • 00:40:05.090 --> 00:40:07.070
  • TODAY, WE'RE SO FIXATED ON HAVING THEM SAY A
  • 00:40:07.090 --> 00:40:09.030
  • SINNER'S PRAYER AND THAT'S A CONVERSION.
  • 00:40:09.050 --> 00:40:11.000
  • NO, IT'S NOT A CONVERSION.
  • 00:40:11.020 --> 00:40:12.230
  • I CAN HAVE A PARROT SAY A SINNER'S PRAYER.
  • 00:40:12.250 --> 00:40:15.050
  • ARE THEY THEN A CHRISTIAN PARROT?
  • 00:40:15.070 --> 00:40:17.130
  • NO YOU GOT TO HAVE --
  • 00:40:17.150 --> 00:40:18.270
  • - SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:40:18.290 --> 00:40:20.220
  • - I COULD HAVE A PARROT RECITE THE SINNER'S PRAYER.
  • 00:40:20.240 --> 00:40:24.130
  • THAT DOESN'T MAKE THEM A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:40:24.150 --> 00:40:25.260
  • IT'S THE FRUIT OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:40:25.280 --> 00:40:27.180
  • THAT'S WHY WE'RE TOLD IN EPHESIANS 2:8 AND 9, "BY
  • 00:40:27.200 --> 00:40:29.180
  • GRACE YOU ARE SAVED THROUGH FAITH." YOU'RE
  • 00:40:29.200 --> 00:40:31.130
  • SAVED UNTO GOOD WORKS, VERSE 10.
  • 00:40:31.150 --> 00:40:33.010
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE FRUIT THAT SHOWS YOU'RE A
  • 00:40:33.030 --> 00:40:35.030
  • DIFFERENT TREE, THAT PRAYER DIDN'T
  • 00:40:35.050 --> 00:40:36.210
  • DO YOU ANY GOOD.
  • 00:40:36.230 --> 00:40:38.090
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE THE FRUIT TO PROVE IT, AND
  • 00:40:38.110 --> 00:40:39.290
  • JESUS SAYS, I JUDGE YOU BY YOUR FRUIT.
  • 00:40:40.010 --> 00:40:41.180
  • YOU SAY TO ME, LORD, LORD, BUT I DON'T EVEN
  • 00:40:41.200 --> 00:40:43.050
  • KNOW YOU.
  • 00:40:43.070 --> 00:40:44.220
  • - THAT'S SOME PRETTY TOUGH TEXAS TALK THERE, DAVE.
  • 00:40:44.240 --> 00:40:46.140
  • - THAT'S BIBLICAL TALK, AND THAT'S WHAT THE
  • 00:40:46.160 --> 00:40:48.100
  • CHURCH HAS GOT TO GET BACK TO.
  • 00:40:48.120 --> 00:40:49.250
  • NOW, WHY ARE WE IN THAT?
  • 00:40:49.270 --> 00:40:51.120
  • LET ME TAKE THIS RIGHT BACK HERE.
  • 00:40:51.140 --> 00:40:53.090
  • WE HAVE BEHIND US THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF
  • 00:40:53.110 --> 00:40:56.060
  • EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS SERVING UNTIL THE HOUSE
  • 00:40:56.080 --> 00:40:57.270
  • OF REPRESENTATIVES OF ANY RECORDED TIME SINCE
  • 00:40:57.290 --> 00:41:00.020
  • THE FOUNDING ERA.
  • 00:41:00.040 --> 00:41:01.290
  • WE HAVE BACK THERE 103 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT
  • 00:41:02.010 --> 00:41:04.220
  • WEEK, WHEN THEY START VOTES, THEY GO OFF TO
  • 00:41:04.240 --> 00:41:07.130
  • ROOM 219 AND START PRAYING FOR THE NATION,
  • 00:41:07.150 --> 00:41:09.220
  • PRAYING FOR THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:41:09.240 --> 00:41:11.160
  • THEY PRAY FOR THE VOTES THEY'RE ABOUT TO HAVE.
  • 00:41:11.180 --> 00:41:13.020
  • THEY SEEK GOD'S WILL ON WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
  • 00:41:13.040 --> 00:41:14.260
  • YOU'LL NEVER HEAR ABOUT THOSE GUYS IN THE NEWS.
  • 00:41:14.280 --> 00:41:16.260
  • YOU'LL NOT HEAR THAT RIGHT DOWN THERE AT THE
  • 00:41:16.280 --> 00:41:19.020
  • WHITE HOUSE, EVERY WEEK THEY HAVE A CABINET BIBLE
  • 00:41:19.040 --> 00:41:21.290
  • STUDY ON THE MATURITY IN CHRIST THAT'S GOING
  • 00:41:22.010 --> 00:41:24.180
  • ON AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
  • 00:41:24.200 --> 00:41:26.090
  • YOU WILL NOT HEAR THAT OF THE 19 CABINET MEMBERS --
  • 00:41:26.110 --> 00:41:28.210
  • TEN ARE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS, SOLID,
  • 00:41:28.230 --> 00:41:30.270
  • BIBLE GROUNDED FOLK.
  • 00:41:30.290 --> 00:41:32.210
  • THAT'S THE KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:41:32.230 --> 00:41:34.250
  • IT'S NOT A CHURCH DOING IT BECAUSE THE CHURCH
  • 00:41:34.270 --> 00:41:36.280
  • OFTEN DOESN'T MAKE REVIVALS, BUT GOD'S WORD
  • 00:41:37.000 --> 00:41:39.160
  • IS STARTING TO COME ALIVE TO PEOPLE, AND GOD'S WORD
  • 00:41:39.180 --> 00:41:42.180
  • IS STARTING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:42.200 --> 00:41:44.130
  • THESE GUYS ARE PLANNING POLICY.
  • 00:41:44.150 --> 00:41:46.030
  • NOW, WE'RE NOT WHERE WE WANT TO BE.
  • 00:41:46.050 --> 00:41:47.290
  • THAT'S FOR SURE, BUT AGAIN, THIS IS DECADES' LONG.
  • 00:41:48.010 --> 00:41:50.070
  • SO WHEN I LOOK AT WHERE WE WERE A DECADE AGO,
  • 00:41:50.090 --> 00:41:52.180
  • MAN, WE'RE PASSING MORE PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION.
  • 00:41:52.200 --> 00:41:54.260
  • WE'RE DOING MORE THINGS.
  • 00:41:54.280 --> 00:41:56.230
  • NOW, THE COURT'S A PROBLEM, BUT THE GUYS IN
  • 00:41:56.250 --> 00:41:59.040
  • CONGRESS ARE DOING MORE GOOD STUFF.
  • 00:41:59.060 --> 00:42:01.020
  • WE HAVE A RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AMBASSADOR.
  • 00:42:01.040 --> 00:42:02.280
  • WE NOW ARE ACTUALLY INVOLVED IN HELPING STOP
  • 00:42:03.000 --> 00:42:05.200
  • THE GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:42:05.220 --> 00:42:07.200
  • THINGS THAT WEREN'T HAPPENING TEN YEARS AGO.
  • 00:42:07.220 --> 00:42:10.010
  • SO I'M SEEING A HEART CHANGE AND TURN IN
  • 00:42:10.030 --> 00:42:12.190
  • A GOOD DIRECTION.
  • 00:42:12.210 --> 00:42:14.130
  • I'M SEEING PEOPLE OPEN TO THE STUFF.
  • 00:42:14.150 --> 00:42:16.060
  • THEY JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, AND UNTIL
  • 00:42:16.080 --> 00:42:18.050
  • CHRISTIANS STEP UP AND SAY, HEY, I'VE GOT --
  • 00:42:18.070 --> 00:42:20.100
  • LOOK AT MY KIDS.
  • 00:42:20.120 --> 00:42:21.240
  • LOOK AT MY BUSINESS. LOOK AT ANYTHING.
  • 00:42:21.260 --> 00:42:23.150
  • WHEN WE START LIVING IT OUT, PEOPLE WANT IT.
  • 00:42:23.170 --> 00:42:26.020
  • THEY'RE HUNGRY FOR IT, AND THAT'S WHAT A
  • 00:42:26.040 --> 00:42:27.150
  • REVIVAL ALWAYS IS.
  • 00:42:27.170 --> 00:42:28.250
  • THAT'S WHERE YOU GET A GROWTH IN THE CHURCH, NOT
  • 00:42:28.270 --> 00:42:30.110
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE SINNER'S PRAYER, BUT
  • 00:42:30.130 --> 00:42:31.190
  • BECAUSE YOUR FAITH WORKS, AND PEOPLE WANT WHAT
  • 00:42:31.210 --> 00:42:33.140
  • WORKS, AND WHEN YOU SHOW THEM THAT YOUR FAITH
  • 00:42:33.160 --> 00:42:35.150
  • WORKS, AND IT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT, AND IT WORKS
  • 00:42:35.170 --> 00:42:37.160
  • REALLY WELL, THEY WANT IT.
  • 00:42:37.180 --> 00:42:39.100
  • - I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF VIEWERS THAT WOULD
  • 00:42:39.120 --> 00:42:42.190
  • HAVE SAID OR ANSWERED THE QUESTION
  • 00:42:42.210 --> 00:42:45.050
  • "WHAT IS A REVIVAL?"
  • 00:42:45.070 --> 00:42:46.270
  • IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOME LOUD CHURCH GATHERING
  • 00:42:46.290 --> 00:42:51.160
  • WHERE PEOPLE WERE JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND LOUD
  • 00:42:51.180 --> 00:42:54.060
  • MUSIC WAS BEING PLAYED, AND MAYBE SOMEBODY WOULD
  • 00:42:54.080 --> 00:42:58.230
  • HAVE HAD HANDS LAID ON THEM AND FALLEN OVER.
  • 00:42:58.250 --> 00:43:01.090
  • - UH-HUH.
  • 00:43:01.110 --> 00:43:03.010
  • - THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN KIND OF A MENTAL PICTURE.
  • 00:43:03.030 --> 00:43:05.230
  • I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S THE WAY IT IS IN TEXAS,
  • 00:43:05.250 --> 00:43:07.280
  • BUT WHAT YOU'RE DESCRIBING IS SUCH A
  • 00:43:08.000 --> 00:43:11.220
  • PRACTICAL THING, OKAY?
  • 00:43:11.240 --> 00:43:14.260
  • THAT'S WHY WALLBUILDERS IS ON TBN.
  • 00:43:14.280 --> 00:43:16.290
  • THAT'S WHY DAVE IS A PART OF MOST OF THE NATIONAL
  • 00:43:17.010 --> 00:43:19.170
  • HOLIDAYS, AND WHEN IT COMES TO THANKSGIVING OR
  • 00:43:19.190 --> 00:43:22.070
  • THIS OR THAT OR THE OTHER; KIND OF WASHINGTON
  • 00:43:22.090 --> 00:43:26.170
  • OR PRESIDENT'S DAY AND FOURTH OF JULY AND ALL OF
  • 00:43:26.190 --> 00:43:30.160
  • THESE THINGS, THAT'S WHY DAVE IS A PART OF ALL OF
  • 00:43:30.180 --> 00:43:33.030
  • THESE THINGS BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS THE
  • 00:43:33.050 --> 00:43:35.220
  • PRACTICALITY OF REVIVAL IS YOU UNDERSTANDING,
  • 00:43:35.240 --> 00:43:39.200
  • FIRST OF ALL KNOWLEDGE, THAT YOU ARE TO LIVE YOUR
  • 00:43:39.220 --> 00:43:42.280
  • LIFE OUT ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, AND WHEN YOU DO
  • 00:43:43.000 --> 00:43:45.160
  • THAT, PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO THAT.
  • 00:43:45.180 --> 00:43:48.110
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:43:48.130 --> 00:43:50.070
  • - AND THEY WANT WHAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:43:50.090 --> 00:43:51.260
  • THEY WANT WHAT YOU ARE, AND YOU BECOME A
  • 00:43:51.280 --> 00:43:53.290
  • MAGNET FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:43:54.010 --> 00:43:56.090
  • AND SO OFTEN, IN MODERN TIMES, WE ARE KNOWN
  • 00:43:56.110 --> 00:44:00.130
  • FOR WHAT WE SAY, NOT WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:44:00.150 --> 00:44:02.210
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:44:02.230 --> 00:44:04.170
  • - AND IF YOU GO BACK TO THE FIRST CENTURY, THE
  • 00:44:04.190 --> 00:44:06.110
  • ONLY WAY YOU WOULD HAVE KNOWN YOU WERE A
  • 00:44:06.130 --> 00:44:08.050
  • CHRISTIAN IS IF YOU LOVED GOD WITH ALL OF YOUR
  • 00:44:08.070 --> 00:44:09.190
  • HEART AND LOVED YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.
  • 00:44:09.210 --> 00:44:11.070
  • THAT WAS THE ONLY QUALIFICATION AT THAT
  • 00:44:11.090 --> 00:44:12.180
  • POINT OR DIFFERENTIATION.
  • 00:44:12.200 --> 00:44:14.150
  • SO NOW IT'S ALL ABOUT WHAT WE SAY
  • 00:44:14.170 --> 00:44:17.060
  • AND NOT WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:44:17.080 --> 00:44:18.230
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT REVIVAL AS WHAT WE DO,
  • 00:44:18.250 --> 00:44:20.040
  • NOT WHAT WE SAY.
  • 00:44:20.060 --> 00:44:21.230
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:44:21.250 --> 00:44:23.050
  • - I GET IT. ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:44:23.070 --> 00:44:24.200
  • I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE LAST WORDS, BUT JUST
  • 00:44:24.220 --> 00:44:27.190
  • BECAUSE I WANT PEOPLE TO GET IT, AND I KNOW YOU'RE
  • 00:44:27.210 --> 00:44:30.250
  • SAYING IT FOR THE THIRD TIME, BUT WE HAVE NEW
  • 00:44:30.270 --> 00:44:33.030
  • VIEWERS THAT TUNE IN, WHAT IS REVIVAL, AND HOW
  • 00:44:33.050 --> 00:44:35.160
  • CAN THEIR LIFE CHANGE AFTER WATCHING THIS
  • 00:44:35.180 --> 00:44:39.190
  • PROGRAM, AND SIR, THE FINAL WORD IS YOURS.
  • 00:44:39.210 --> 00:44:43.100
  • - THE LAST PART FIRST.
  • 00:44:43.120 --> 00:44:45.190
  • YOUR LIFE WILL CHANGE WHEN YOU GET IN GOD'S
  • 00:44:45.210 --> 00:44:47.260
  • WORD AND READ IT AS A PRACTICAL BOOK.
  • 00:44:47.280 --> 00:44:50.160
  • DO NOT READ THE BIBLE AS A DEVOTIONAL BOOK.
  • 00:44:50.180 --> 00:44:52.180
  • DON'T READ IT TO GET BLESSED.
  • 00:44:52.200 --> 00:44:54.200
  • READ IT AND SAY, OH, LOOK WHAT THAT SAYS ABOUT SCIENCE.
  • 00:44:54.220 --> 00:44:57.010
  • HEY, THIS IS REALLY GOOD ON ECONOMICS.
  • 00:44:57.030 --> 00:44:58.190
  • OH, LOOK WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT TEACHING
  • 00:44:58.210 --> 00:45:00.140
  • METHODS FOR EDUCATION.
  • 00:45:00.160 --> 00:45:02.040
  • READ THE BIBLE AS A PRACTICAL BOOK.
  • 00:45:02.060 --> 00:45:04.220
  • AT WALLBUILDERS, WE HAVE SO MUCH THAT SHOWS HOW
  • 00:45:04.240 --> 00:45:07.180
  • PEOPLE IN EVERY PROFESSION TOOK THE BIBLE
  • 00:45:07.200 --> 00:45:10.000
  • AND TRANSFORMED THAT PROFESSION, WHETHER IT BE
  • 00:45:10.020 --> 00:45:12.020
  • SCIENCE OR LAW OR MEDICINE OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:45:12.040 --> 00:45:14.030
  • - STOP RIGHT THERE AND JUST SAY WHAT IS THE BEST
  • 00:45:14.050 --> 00:45:16.240
  • PRODUCT AT WALLBUILDERS' WEB SITE THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:45:16.260 --> 00:45:19.290
  • THE INTRODUCTORY COURSE TO WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:45:20.010 --> 00:45:22.250
  • - IF YOU WANT TO READ ONE, IT WOULD BE THE
  • 00:45:22.270 --> 00:45:25.140
  • FOUNDER'S BIBLE BECAUSE THE FOUNDER'S BIBLE TAKES
  • 00:45:25.160 --> 00:45:29.060
  • ITS BIBLE VERSES AND SHOWS YOU HOW IT BUILT
  • 00:45:29.080 --> 00:45:32.090
  • SCIENCE OR HOW IT BUILT MEDICINE OR WHATEVER IT WAS.
  • 00:45:32.110 --> 00:45:34.140
  • SO AS AN INDIVIDUAL, GET INTO THE BIBLE AND DON'T
  • 00:45:34.160 --> 00:45:35.290
  • LOOK TO BE BLESSED BY IT.
  • 00:45:36.010 --> 00:45:37.110
  • LOOK FOR STUFF TO DO OUT OF IT.
  • 00:45:37.130 --> 00:45:38.220
  • READ THE BIBLE AND SAY, ALL RIGHT, I SEE SOME --
  • 00:45:38.240 --> 00:45:40.220
  • THIS IS WHAT I GOT TO DO AT SCHOOL NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:45:40.240 --> 00:45:42.160
  • THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO DO AT BUSINESS.
  • 00:45:42.180 --> 00:45:44.030
  • THIS IS WHAT I NEED TO DO AT THE BOARD MEETING,
  • 00:45:44.050 --> 00:45:45.200
  • WHATEVER IT IS.
  • 00:45:45.220 --> 00:45:47.080
  • LOOK FOR STUFF TO DO.
  • 00:45:47.100 --> 00:45:49.090
  • WHEN YOU DO THAT, YOU START TRANSFORMING THOSE
  • 00:45:49.110 --> 00:45:51.040
  • AROUND YOU WHO WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE AND SAY I WANT
  • 00:45:51.060 --> 00:45:53.030
  • WHAT YOU GOT, AND THEN IT GROWS, AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:45:53.050 --> 00:45:55.000
  • LEADS TO A REFORMATION.
  • 00:45:55.020 --> 00:45:56.270
  • - BEFORE YOU GIVE THE LAST WORD, WHICH IS THE
  • 00:45:56.290 --> 00:46:00.260
  • DESCRIPTION, I JUST WANT TO SAY THE 800 NUMBER ON
  • 00:46:00.280 --> 00:46:04.120
  • THE SCREEN IS FOR THAT FOUNDER'S BIBLE, AND
  • 00:46:04.140 --> 00:46:09.130
  • DAVE, YOU ARE A NATIONAL TREASURE.
  • 00:46:09.150 --> 00:46:12.170
  • YOU'VE PUT THIS TOGETHER.
  • 00:46:12.190 --> 00:46:14.070
  • YOU'VE PUT THIS ENTIRE THING TOGETHER, AND WE
  • 00:46:14.090 --> 00:46:16.180
  • WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.
  • 00:46:16.200 --> 00:46:20.150
  • IT IS LITERALLY THE WAY TO READ THE BIBLE AND
  • 00:46:20.170 --> 00:46:22.110
  • HAVE IT LIVE OUT.
  • 00:46:22.130 --> 00:46:23.220
  • YOU WANT REVIVAL IN YOUR HOUSE?
  • 00:46:23.240 --> 00:46:25.130
  • YOU WANT REVIVAL IN YOUR CITY?
  • 00:46:25.150 --> 00:46:28.010
  • YOU WANT REVIVAL IN YOUR CHURCH?
  • 00:46:28.030 --> 00:46:29.160
  • LIVE IT OUT DAY-BY-DAY.
  • 00:46:29.180 --> 00:46:33.020
  • STOP BEING ABOUT WHAT YOU SAY ON TWITTER,
  • 00:46:33.040 --> 00:46:35.190
  • AND WHAT YOU DO, OKAY?
  • 00:46:35.210 --> 00:46:39.030
  • THE FOUNDER'S BIBLE, THE 800 NUMBER, AND WHAT WE
  • 00:46:39.050 --> 00:46:41.180
  • DID IS WE ORGANIZED THAT THE OPERATORS THERE KNOW
  • 00:46:41.200 --> 00:46:44.200
  • WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:46:44.220 --> 00:46:46.240
  • THE 800 NUMBER IS ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:46:46.260 --> 00:46:49.000
  • BY THE WAY, GO TO THIS SHOT, I WANT TO TURN TO
  • 00:46:49.020 --> 00:46:51.070
  • THIS CAMERA BECAUSE IT'S SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE SHOT.
  • 00:46:51.090 --> 00:46:53.110
  • THIS GIANT 800 NUMBER HERE WITH THE YOU IS
  • 00:46:53.130 --> 00:46:57.040
  • CAPITOL IN THE BACKGROUND IS FOR THE FOUNDER'S BIBLE.
  • 00:46:57.060 --> 00:47:03.260
  • DAVE, FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:47:03.280 --> 00:47:06.010
  • THANK YOU FOR PUTTING THAT TOGETHER.
  • 00:47:06.030 --> 00:47:08.210
  • IT'S A NATIONAL TREASURE.
  • 00:47:08.230 --> 00:47:11.070
  • HE'S A NATIONAL TREASURE, AND WE'RE TALKING TODAY
  • 00:47:11.090 --> 00:47:13.200
  • ABOUT REVIVAL.
  • 00:47:13.220 --> 00:47:15.240
  • SO THIS 800 NUMBER FOR THE FOUNDER'S BIBLE,
  • 00:47:15.260 --> 00:47:18.280
  • EVERYONE GETS IT.
  • 00:47:19.000 --> 00:47:20.270
  • CALL THE NUMBER, AND ALL THE INFORMATION
  • 00:47:20.290 --> 00:47:22.190
  • IS ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:47:22.210 --> 00:47:24.150
  • CALL IT, AND GET IT, AND THAT'S HOW
  • 00:47:24.170 --> 00:47:26.130
  • THAT'S GOING TO WORK.
  • 00:47:26.150 --> 00:47:28.030
  • OKAY, WHAT IS KIND OF IN YOUR FINAL
  • 00:47:28.050 --> 00:47:29.270
  • THOUGHTS, WHAT IS REVIVAL?
  • 00:47:29.290 --> 00:47:32.090
  • - REVIVAL IS A CHANGE OF LIFE SPAN TO LEADS TO A
  • 00:47:32.110 --> 00:47:36.190
  • CHANGE IN POLICY.
  • 00:47:36.210 --> 00:47:39.000
  • YOU NEVER EVER HAVE A REVIVAL THAT'S ONLY SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:47:39.020 --> 00:47:41.020
  • IT ALWAYS AFFECTS POLICY.
  • 00:47:41.040 --> 00:47:42.250
  • - OKAY, SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:47:42.270 --> 00:47:44.110
  • - REVIVAL IS A CHANGE IN PERSONAL ATTITUDES THAT
  • 00:47:44.130 --> 00:47:46.060
  • LEAD TO A CHANGE IN NATIONAL POLICY.
  • 00:47:46.080 --> 00:47:48.040
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:47:48.060 --> 00:47:49.240
  • - AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN A REVIVAL WHEN YOU START
  • 00:47:49.260 --> 00:47:51.220
  • GETTING POLICIES THAT REFLECT BIBLICAL PRECEPTS
  • 00:47:51.240 --> 00:47:55.000
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE DRIVEN FROM THE BOTTOM UP.
  • 00:47:55.020 --> 00:47:57.030
  • THEY DON'T CREATE THE CULTURE.
  • 00:47:57.050 --> 00:47:58.250
  • WE CREATE THE CULTURE FROM THE BOTTOM UP.
  • 00:47:58.270 --> 00:48:00.170
  • WHEN WE GET IF THE BIBLE, APPLY IT, USE IT, AND
  • 00:48:00.190 --> 00:48:02.230
  • KNOW IT, THEN WE'LL DEMAND POLICIES THAT
  • 00:48:02.250 --> 00:48:04.260
  • REFLECT WHAT WE KNOW AND WHAT WE DO, AND THAT'S
  • 00:48:04.280 --> 00:48:07.050
  • WHAT REVIVAL ACTUALLY -- YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN A
  • 00:48:07.070 --> 00:48:09.210
  • GENUINE REVIVAL WHEN YOUR POLICIES START
  • 00:48:09.230 --> 00:48:12.030
  • CHANGING AS A RESULT.
  • 00:48:12.050 --> 00:48:14.020
  • - AND HOW DO YOU CHANGE FIRST YOUR HOME, THEN
  • 00:48:14.040 --> 00:48:17.080
  • YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, THEN YOUR COMMUNITY, AND THEN
  • 00:48:17.100 --> 00:48:20.080
  • IT GOES UP FROM THERE?
  • 00:48:20.100 --> 00:48:21.240
  • - YOU START WITH THE ATTITUDE THAT GOD'S WORD
  • 00:48:21.260 --> 00:48:25.070
  • IS RIGHT EVERY TIME, EVEN WHEN I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:48:25.090 --> 00:48:28.110
  • THEREFORE, WHEN IT TELLS ME NOT TO CURSE MY ENEMY,
  • 00:48:28.130 --> 00:48:32.220
  • THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
  • 00:48:32.240 --> 00:48:34.200
  • I'D RATHER PUNCH THEM IN THE NOSE, BUT I'M GOING
  • 00:48:34.220 --> 00:48:36.150
  • TO DO IT BECAUSE IT SAYS TO.
  • 00:48:36.170 --> 00:48:38.200
  • AND I SAY THAT BECAUSE THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:48:38.220 --> 00:48:40.180
  • THEOLOGICAL THINGS YOU'LL BUMP UP AGAINST THAT
  • 00:48:40.200 --> 00:48:41.260
  • DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE, AND THAT'S NOT WHAT I
  • 00:48:41.280 --> 00:48:43.030
  • BELIEVE.
  • 00:48:43.050 --> 00:48:44.110
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
  • 00:48:44.130 --> 00:48:45.250
  • THIS IS WHAT GOD SAID.
  • 00:48:45.270 --> 00:48:47.070
  • SO THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY GOD IS
  • 00:48:47.090 --> 00:48:48.170
  • RIGHT 100% OF THE TIME.
  • 00:48:48.190 --> 00:48:50.060
  • IF I HAVE A DISPUTE WITH GOD, HE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:48:50.080 --> 00:48:51.200
  • RIGHT, AND THAT'S MY POSITION.
  • 00:48:51.220 --> 00:48:53.240
  • SO WHEN I READ IN THE BIBLE SOMETHING THAT I
  • 00:48:53.260 --> 00:48:56.180
  • DON'T LIKE AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, I'M STILL
  • 00:48:56.200 --> 00:48:58.080
  • GOING TO DO IT.
  • 00:48:58.100 --> 00:49:00.080
  • SO THAT'S A STARTING ATTITUDE IS NO MATTER HOW
  • 00:49:00.100 --> 00:49:02.020
  • HARD IT IS, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH IT IS, NO MATTER
  • 00:49:02.040 --> 00:49:04.120
  • HOW MUCH YOU DON'T WANT TO GO AND BE RECONCILED
  • 00:49:04.140 --> 00:49:06.250
  • WITH A NEIGHBOR THAT YOU'VE BEEN YELLING AT
  • 00:49:06.270 --> 00:49:09.020
  • FOR 50 YEARS, THE BIBLE AND JESUS SAYS LEAVE YOUR
  • 00:49:09.040 --> 00:49:10.290
  • GIFT AT THE ALTAR. GO BE RECONCILED. I HATE THAT.
  • 00:49:11.010 --> 00:49:13.030
  • GREAT, YOU HATE IT, GO DO IT.
  • 00:49:13.050 --> 00:49:15.040
  • IF YOU DON'T OBEY, AND HE SAYS I GIVE THE HOLY
  • 00:49:15.060 --> 00:49:19.160
  • SPIRIT TO THOSE THAT OBEY ME.
  • 00:49:19.180 --> 00:49:21.050
  • HE SAYS OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE.
  • 00:49:21.070 --> 00:49:23.050
  • ALL THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, STUFF COMES TO
  • 00:49:23.070 --> 00:49:24.290
  • THOSE THAT OBEY, AND THAT'S THE DEAL.
  • 00:49:25.010 --> 00:49:26.200
  • YOU READ GOD'S WORD, WHATEVER IT SAYS, YOU
  • 00:49:26.220 --> 00:49:28.280
  • OBEY IT, BUT YOU ALSO LOOK FOR
  • 00:49:29.000 --> 00:49:30.120
  • APPLICATION OUT OF IT.
  • 00:49:30.140 --> 00:49:32.020
  • YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR STUFF TO DO.
  • 00:49:32.040 --> 00:49:33.220
  • I READ MY CHAPTER.
  • 00:49:33.240 --> 00:49:35.200
  • I'M GOING TO FIND SOMETHING I CAN APPLY
  • 00:49:35.220 --> 00:49:37.060
  • TODAY THAT I'VE NEVER DONE BEFORE.
  • 00:49:37.080 --> 00:49:38.160
  • THAT'S REVIVAL. THAT'S WHAT BRINGS REVIVAL.
  • 00:49:38.180 --> 00:49:40.010
  • - REVIVAL IS REALLY WHAT YOU DO, NOT WHAT YOU SAY.
  • 00:49:40.030 --> 00:49:44.160
  • - THAT'S EXACTLY IT, AND IT'S NOT A
  • 00:49:44.180 --> 00:49:46.060
  • SPIRITUAL FEELING. IT'S NOT AN EMOTION.
  • 00:49:46.080 --> 00:49:47.180
  • IT'S NOT THE MANIFESTATIONS THAT
  • 00:49:47.200 --> 00:49:49.170
  • GO ON AROUND US.
  • 00:49:49.190 --> 00:49:51.000
  • FIRST AWAKENING, ALL SORT OF MIRACULOUS
  • 00:49:51.020 --> 00:49:52.110
  • MANIFESTATIONS.
  • 00:49:52.130 --> 00:49:53.280
  • THERE WERE SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT, ALL OF THE
  • 00:49:54.000 --> 00:49:55.120
  • THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:49:55.140 --> 00:49:56.250
  • IT HAPPENED BACK THEN, BUT THAT WASN'T THE FOCUS.
  • 00:49:56.270 --> 00:49:58.230
  • THE FOCUS WAS TRANSFORMING THE CULTURE.
  • 00:49:58.250 --> 00:50:00.250
  • IT WAS GETTING PEOPLE IT THINK BIBLE, GETTING
  • 00:50:00.270 --> 00:50:02.180
  • PEOPLE TO LIVE BIBLE.
  • 00:50:02.200 --> 00:50:04.120
  • ALL THIS OTHER STUFF IS GOOD STUFF.
  • 00:50:04.140 --> 00:50:07.160
  • IT'S FINE, BUT THAT'S NOT REVIVAL, AND THAT'S NOT
  • 00:50:07.180 --> 00:50:09.160
  • AN INDICATION OF A REVIVAL.
  • 00:50:09.180 --> 00:50:11.030
  • THAT GOES ON EVEN WHEN REVIVAL IS NOT THERE.
  • 00:50:11.050 --> 00:50:13.120
  • REVIVAL HAPPENS WHEN YOU START SEEING THE CULTURE
  • 00:50:13.140 --> 00:50:16.120
  • TRANSFORM AND POLICIES CHANGE, AND EDUCATION
  • 00:50:16.140 --> 00:50:21.030
  • CHANGE, AND THAT'S WHY IT'S A DECADES' LONG PROCESS.
  • 00:50:21.050 --> 00:50:23.050
  • YOU COMMIT YOURSELF TO LIVING GOD'S WORD EVERY
  • 00:50:23.070 --> 00:50:25.060
  • DAY,IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE OVER TIME.
  • 00:50:25.080 --> 00:50:26.190
  • - AND YOU THINK WE'RE IN A REVIVAL?
  • 00:50:26.210 --> 00:50:28.060
  • - I THINK WE'RE IN A REVIVAL.
  • 00:50:28.080 --> 00:50:29.080
  • I THINK WE'RE IN A REVIVAL.
  • 00:50:29.100 --> 00:50:30.210
  • I THINK HISTORIANS WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS
  • 00:50:30.230 --> 00:50:31.270
  • YEARS FROM NOW.
  • 00:50:31.290 --> 00:50:33.050
  • THEY'LL LOOK BACK AND SAY -- NOBODY IN A REVIVAL
  • 00:50:33.070 --> 00:50:34.190
  • KNEW THEY WERE IN A REVIVAL AND WHAT WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:50:34.210 --> 00:50:36.180
  • HISTORIANS AFTERWARDS LOOKED BACK AND SAID,
  • 00:50:36.200 --> 00:50:38.170
  • LET'S CALL THAT THE SECOND GREAT AWAKENING.
  • 00:50:38.190 --> 00:50:40.200
  • NOBODY KNEW AT THE TIME.
  • 00:50:40.220 --> 00:50:43.120
  • - BUT AT THE TIME, IT FELT LIKE A BIG FIGHT.
  • 00:50:43.140 --> 00:50:44.220
  • - AT THE TIME, IT WAS.
  • 00:50:44.240 --> 00:50:46.160
  • THE SECOND GREAT AWAKENING WAS ALL ABOUT
  • 00:50:46.180 --> 00:50:47.290
  • THE SLAVERY ISSUE.
  • 00:50:48.010 --> 00:50:49.100
  • THE CHRISTIANS WERE TAKING THE
  • 00:50:49.120 --> 00:50:50.170
  • ANTI-SLAVERY POSITION.
  • 00:50:50.190 --> 00:50:51.250
  • THE SECULAR GUYS WERE TAKING -- AND SOME
  • 00:50:51.270 --> 00:50:53.030
  • CHRISTIANS WERE TAKING THE SLAVERY POSITION.
  • 00:50:53.050 --> 00:50:54.260
  • A LOT OF GUYS IN THE SOUTH WERE USING THE
  • 00:50:54.280 --> 00:50:56.110
  • BIBLE TO JUSTIFY SLAVERY.
  • 00:50:56.130 --> 00:50:57.230
  • IT WAS A CULTURE FIGHT.
  • 00:50:57.250 --> 00:51:00.070
  • THAT'S A REVIVAL.
  • 00:51:00.090 --> 00:51:02.020
  • WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD BECAUSE YOU DON'T GET
  • 00:51:02.040 --> 00:51:03.260
  • PEACE IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:51:03.280 --> 00:51:05.090
  • YOU GET PEACE IN THE NEXT WORLD.
  • 00:51:05.110 --> 00:51:06.220
  • THIS WORLD, YOU'RE PUT HERE IN TEND THE GARDEN,
  • 00:51:06.240 --> 00:51:08.050
  • AND THERE'S A LOT OF WEEDS YOU GOT TO PULL
  • 00:51:08.070 --> 00:51:10.100
  • OUT, AND THERE'S A LOT OF FIGHTS THAT WILL GO ON.
  • 00:51:10.120 --> 00:51:11.280
  • JESUS DIDN'T HAVE IT PEACEFUL WHEN HE WAS HERE.
  • 00:51:12.000 --> 00:51:13.250
  • THEY ATTACKED HIM, THEY BEAT HIM.
  • 00:51:13.270 --> 00:51:15.120
  • HE SAID, IF THEY DID IT TO ME, THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 00:51:15.140 --> 00:51:16.200
  • DO IT TO YOU.
  • 00:51:16.220 --> 00:51:18.060
  • IF YOU THINK REVIVAL IS THE ABSENCE OF CONFLICT,
  • 00:51:18.080 --> 00:51:19.200
  • YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THE BIBLE IS ABOUT OR WHAT
  • 00:51:19.220 --> 00:51:20.270
  • REVIVAL IS ABOUT.
  • 00:51:20.290 --> 00:51:22.100
  • THERE IS CONFLICT ALL OVER IT.
  • 00:51:22.120 --> 00:51:24.090
  • GEORGE WHITFIELD, IN HIS DAY, GREAT REVIVAL

  • PREACHER WE'VE TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:51:26.230 --> 00:51:28.050
  • THE PREACHERS OF HIS DAY TOLD THEIR PARISHIONERS
  • 00:51:28.070 --> 00:51:29.270
  • TO CLIMB UP THE TREES AND PEE ON HIM AND
  • 00:51:29.290 --> 00:51:31.090
  • DEFECATE ON HIM.
  • 00:51:31.110 --> 00:51:32.180
  • THAT'S WHAT PREACHERS WERE TELLING THEM.
  • 00:51:32.200 --> 00:51:34.070
  • HE HAD TO PUT UP WITH THAT MEETING AFTER
  • 00:51:34.090 --> 00:51:35.260
