  • 00:05:00.110 --> 00:05:02.020
  • PEOPLE THAT SHOW UP FOR 7 IN THE
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.090
  • MORNING PRAYER, WHATEVER, WHICH
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.090
  • IN OUR CHURCH WAS NOT A LOT OF
  • 00:05:04.090 --> 00:05:05.050
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:05.050 --> 00:05:06.020
  • - SURE.
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:06.240
  • - AND SO I GREW UP IN THAT.
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:07.240
  • WHICH I'M GRATEFUL FOR.
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:09.090
  • AND MY DAD AND I CO-PLANTED A
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:10.230
  • CHURCH WHEN I WAS 23 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:11.200
  • - YOUR NEW CHURCH NOW,
  • 00:05:11.200 --> 00:05:12.150
  • BRIDGETOWN.
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:13.200
  • - YES.
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:16.060
  • - AND TELL ME A LITTLE BIT,
  • 00:05:16.060 --> 00:05:17.260
  • THAT CHURCH IS GOING WELL,.
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:18.210
  • - BASICALLY, THAT WAS OUR
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:21.170
  • LOCATION IN THE CITY WHEN I
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:24.210
  • DEMOTED MYSELF FOR ALL GOOD
  • 00:05:24.210 --> 00:05:25.200
  • REASONS, WE SAID HEY, LET'S LET
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:26.120
  • EACH LOCATION BECOME ITS OWN
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:27.040
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:28.120
  • AND I WILL TAKE THE SMALLER ONE
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:29.040
  • IN THE CITY.
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:30.190
  • NOW THEY ARE ALL 4 SEPARATE
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:31.100
  • CHURCHES, THEY ARE ALL HEALTHIER
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:32.050
  • THAN EVER.
  • 00:05:32.050 --> 00:05:34.040
  • - ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:36.030
  • COOL, YOUR CHURCH IS DOING SO
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:39.010
  • WELL WITH MILLENNIALS, THAT
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:39.210
  • GENERATION THAT IS NOT THAT
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:40.250
  • INTERESTED IN CHURCH.
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:42.140
  • INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH AND
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:44.040
  • LOCATIONAL CHURCH.
  • 00:05:44.040 --> 00:05:45.200
  • AND YET YOU ARE ABLE TO REACH
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:46.120
  • THAT GENERATION.
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:48.040
  • IN WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER THE
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:49.110
  • ONLY TOWN THAT IS HARDER THAN
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:50.220
  • L.A., PORTLAND, I MEAN, I CAN'T
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:51.220
  • IMAGINE DOING MINISTRY IN

  • PORTLAND.
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.130
  • GOD'S BLESSING IT.
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:54.210
  • A BIG PART OF THAT WAS THIS
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:55.180
  • LOVE-OLOGY THING.
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:58.010

  • AFRAID TO DISCUSS SOME OF THE
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:05.100
  • BIG TABOO SUBJECT, SEX, LOVE,
  • 00:06:05.100 --> 00:06:06.180
  • MARRIAGE AND TO ADDRESS IT FROM
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.080
  • A BIBLICAL STANDPOINT.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:09.040
  • WE PUT A LITTLE SOMETHING
  • 00:06:09.040 --> 00:06:10.000
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.110
  • CHECK THIS OUT.

  • - I LIVE IN PORTLAND, OREGON,
  • 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:32.010
  • WHICH IS THIS GREAT CITY IN THE
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:33.240
  • PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:35.200
  • IT IS BUZZING WITH LIFE AND
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:37.030
  • CULTURE.
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.040
  • PORTLAND IS THE BEST CITY FOR
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:39.090
  • COFFEE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.020
  • ONE OF THE BEST CITIES FOR FOOD
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:42.000
  • IN ALL OF THE U.S.
  • 00:06:42.000 --> 00:06:44.070
  • I GOT TO LEAD THIS GREAT CHURCH
  • 00:06:44.070 --> 00:06:45.120
  • RIGHT DOWNTOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:46.230
  • THE CITY.
  • 00:06:46.230 --> 00:06:48.280
  • AND BECAUSE OF PORTLAND'S SWAY,
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:50.110
  • YOUNG PEOPLE ARE MOVING TO THE
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:51.230
  • CITY IN DROVES FROM ALL OVER THE
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:52.220
  • PLACE.
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.030
  • ABOUT HALF THE CHURCH I LEAD IS
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:55.290
  • UNDER THE AGE EVER 30 AND
  • 00:06:55.290 --> 00:06:57.290
  • SINGLE, WHICH MEANS EITHER THEY
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:58.270
  • ARE NOT MARRIED YET, OR THEY ARE
  • 00:06:58.270 --> 00:07:00.080
  • JUST GETTING STARTED.
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:03.190
  • I GET FRONT ROW SEATS TO WATCH
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:06.220
  • LOTS AND LOTS OF YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:08.220
  • WRESTLE WITH THE TENSION BETWEEN
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:10.070
  • WHAT THE CITY SAYS AND BY THAT I
  • 00:07:10.070 --> 00:07:11.250
  • MEAN WHAT CULTURE AT LARGE SAYS
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:13.060
  • ABOUT LOVE AND MARRIAGE AND SEX
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:14.250
  • AND ROMANCE AND WHAT GOD SAYS IN
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:16.040
  • THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:20.030
  • BECAUSE THERE IS A COSMIC GAP.
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:21.130
  • AND THERE IS LOTS OF FEAR AND
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:23.160
  • INSECURITY RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:24.250
  • I MEAN, AFTER ALL, ABOUT
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:27.050
  • 50 PERCENT OF MARRIAGES END IN
  • 00:07:27.050 --> 00:07:29.060
  • DIVORCE, THAT IS INSANE, THINK
  • 00:07:29.060 --> 00:07:31.060
  • ABOUT IT, THROW A COIN UP IN THE
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.060
  • AIR, SLAP IT ON YOUR WRIST, CALL
  • 00:07:32.060 --> 00:07:34.010
  • HEADS OR TAILS, THOSE ARE THE
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:36.030
  • ODDS OF YOUR MARRIAGE MAKING IT
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:37.110
  • PAST A FEW SHORT YEARS.
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:39.050
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:40.220
  • WHERE DO WE GET OFF?
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:43.020
  • MUSIC
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:45.230

  • MUSIC
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:56.100
  • - SO THAT BOOK WAS LIKE A BIG
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:59.040
  • PART OF REALLY YOUR BREAK OUT.
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:00.170
  • I MEAN THIS IDEA OF TALKING
  • 00:08:00.170 --> 00:08:02.290
  • ABOUT LOVE-OLOGY A WORD YOU MADE
  • 00:08:02.290 --> 00:08:05.190
  • UP, A VERY COOL WORD.
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:06.280
  • NOW YOU HAVE WRITTEN THIS NEW
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:10.000
  • BOOK "GOD HAS A NAME" WHICH HAS
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:12.090
  • A LOT TO DO WITH, YOU SAID IT
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:13.140
  • EARLIER, WE SAY IT A LOT, BUT
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:16.090
  • OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:17.090
  • GOD, THAT HE OFFERS US THIS
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.050

  • I READ THIS BOOK.
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:22.150
  • IT IS AMAZING.
  • 00:08:22.150 --> 00:08:24.050
  • IF YOU ARE WATCHING TODAY, MY

  • HIS NEW BOOK, "GOD HAS A NAME,"
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:33.030
  • WHICH REALLY TALKS ABOUT THE
  • 00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:34.060
  • HEBREW ROOTS OF KNOWING GOD
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:35.040
  • PERSONALLY AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:37.070
  • SO LET'S START A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:08:37.070 --> 00:08:37.270
  • THERE.
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:39.110
  • WHY IS IT A BIG DEAL "GOD HAS A
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:41.080
  • NAME"?
  • 00:08:41.080 --> 00:08:42.290
  • - YEAH, I MEAN, OUR MUTUAL HERO
  • 00:08:42.290 --> 00:08:44.270
  • DALLAS WILLARD HAD THAT GREAT
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:46.290
  • LINE THAT WE LIVE AT THE MERCY
  • 00:08:46.290 --> 00:08:47.230
  • OF OUR IDEAS.
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:49.210
  • AND NO WHERE IS THAT MORE TRUE
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:51.180
  • THAN OUR IDEAS OF GOD.
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:53.150
  • A.W. TOZER WHO WAS THIS FAMOUS
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:55.210
  • MID CENTURY PASTOR FROM A
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:58.000
  • GENERATION OR TWO AGO SAID THAT
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:59.180
  • WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT GOD IS THE
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:01.010
  • MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:05.050
  • BECAUSE WE TEND BY A SECRET LAW
  • 00:09:05.050 --> 00:09:06.280
  • OF THE SOUL TO MOVE TOWARDS OUR
  • 00:09:06.280 --> 00:09:08.030
  • MENTAL IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:09:08.030 --> 00:09:09.270
  • WHICH IS, BASICALLY A WAY OF
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:12.040
  • SAYING THAT WE BECOME LIKE OUR
  • 00:09:12.040 --> 00:09:13.020
  • IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:09:13.020 --> 00:09:15.010
  • WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:19.050
  • THINK ABOUT GOD WILL SHAPE YOU
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.160
  • FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE INTO THE
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:21.260
  • MAN OR THE WOMAN THAT YOU
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:23.010
  • BECOME.
  • 00:09:23.010 --> 00:09:24.150
  • BECAUSE YOU BECOME LIKE WHAT YOU
  • 00:09:24.150 --> 00:09:25.140
  • WORSHIP.
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:26.250
  • THAT CAN BE A GREAT THING IF YOU
  • 00:09:26.250 --> 00:09:28.180
  • WORSHIP JESUS OF NAZARETH AND
  • 00:09:28.180 --> 00:09:30.070
  • THE GOD WE READ ABOUT IN THE
  • 00:09:30.070 --> 00:09:32.050
  • SCRIPTURES AND YOU READ IT
  • 00:09:32.050 --> 00:09:35.010
  • WRITE, IT CAN BE AN UNHEALTHY OR
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:35.290
  • TOXIC THING IF YOU ARE OFF IN
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:37.090
  • WHAT YOU BELIEVE OR THINK ABOUT
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:38.150
  • GOD.
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:39.170
  • - AS A CHRISTIAN, IF YOU VIEW
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:42.060
  • GOD AS ANGRY, WRATHFUL,.
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:43.040
  • - BIGOTED, RACIST IT WILL SHAPE
  • 00:09:44.030 --> 00:09:47.030
  • YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE, I LIVE IN
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:49.090
  • PORTLAND, SO THAT IS MORE RARE.
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:52.020
  • IN MY WORLD IT IS ALL ABOUT
  • 00:09:52.020 --> 00:09:53.240
  • RAINBOWS AND HAPPY AND LOVE HAS
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:57.050
  • BEEN REDEFINED AS TOLERANCE AND
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.290
  • WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU IS GOOD FOR
  • 00:09:59.290 --> 00:10:01.110
  • YOU, THERE IS NO RIGHT, THERE IS
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.080
  • NO WRONG.
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:03.010
  • BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:03.010 --> 00:10:04.080
  • FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:05.060
  • ALL THAT.
  • 00:10:05.060 --> 00:10:06.260
  • IF THAT'S WHAT YOU THINK OF GOD,
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:08.250
  • HE IS A GOOD, HEALTHY BOHEMIAN
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:09.160
  • FROM THE LEFT COAST AND A GOOD
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:10.180
  • PROGRESSIVE, THAT WILL SHAPE YOU
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:11.250
  • INTO THAT.
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.190
  • IF YOU THINK OF GOD AS JUST A
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:16.100
  • LIFE COACH OR JUST THERE TO MAKE
  • 00:10:16.100 --> 00:10:17.190
  • YOUR LIFE BETTER AND HELP MAKE
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:19.000
  • YOU HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND WISE,
  • 00:10:19.000 --> 00:10:20.010
  • THAT WILL SHAPE YOU INTO THAT.
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:22.050
  • - WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DON'T
  • 00:10:22.170 --> 00:10:25.170
  • BELIEVE IN GOD, YOU HAVE THE
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:26.240
  • ATHEIST OR PEOPLE WHO-- IDOLATRY
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:27.170
  • IS STILL ALIVE.
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:28.080
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:10:28.080 --> 00:10:29.180
  • THEN GOD OR THE PERSON OF GOD
  • 00:10:29.180 --> 00:10:31.020
  • AND THE PERSON OF JESUS HAS TO
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:32.220
  • BE REPLACED BY THE IDEOLOGY OF
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:34.220
  • ATHEISM AND A LIFE WITH NO
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:36.000
  • MEANING, WITH NO PURPOSE.
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:36.290
  • IT LEADS YOU TO SOCIAL
  • 00:10:36.290 --> 00:10:39.240
  • DARWINISM, IT LEADS YOU TO THIS
  • 00:10:39.240 --> 00:10:41.160
  • UTILITARIAN LIKE DOG EAT DOG
  • 00:10:41.160 --> 00:10:43.130
  • SURVIVAL OF THE FITTIST TYPE
  • 00:10:43.130 --> 00:10:45.030
  • APPROACH TO LIFE AND
  • 00:10:45.030 --> 00:10:46.100
  • RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:47.020
  • I'M NOT SAYING ALL ATHEISTS ARE
  • 00:10:47.020 --> 00:10:48.100
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:49.180
  • I KNOW SOME ATHEISTS THAT ARE
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.280
  • QUITE KIND AND LOVING, BUT THEY
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:52.080
  • EVEN HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:54.060
  • PERSONALITY AND DISPOSITION IS
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:54.270
  • IN SPITE OF ATHEISM, NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:55.200
  • OF IT.
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:56.280
  • - THAT'S A GOOD LINE.
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:59.100
  • SO YOU BECOME LIKE THE GOD YOU
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:00.040
  • WORSHIP.
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:03.060
  • SO THE OBVIOUS QUESTION, THEN,
  • 00:11:03.060 --> 00:11:05.160
  • PASTOR, WHAT IS GOD LIKE?
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:07.000
  • WHAT IS THE GOD THAT WE OUGHT TO
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:07.240
  • BELIEVE IN?
  • 00:11:08.010 --> 00:11:11.010
  • - SO, LITTLE BIT OF BACK STORY
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:12.150
  • THERE, ONE KIND OF KEY MOMENT--
  • 00:11:12.150 --> 00:11:13.190
  • I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING JESUS AS
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:14.290
  • LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I GREW
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:16.030
  • UP IN THE CHURCH, MY DAD IS A
  • 00:11:16.030 --> 00:11:17.000
  • PASTOR.
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.240
  • ONE KEY MOMENT FOR ME IN MY
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:20.170
  • RELATIONSHIP TO GOD WAS THE
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:21.260
  • NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, I WAS IN
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:23.070
  • THE SEMINARY CLASS WITH DR. GARY
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:24.220
  • BASHEERS WHO HAS BECOME A MENTOR
  • 00:11:24.220 --> 00:11:26.000
  • OF MINE, THEOLOGIAN.
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:28.020
  • AND HE KEPT COMING BACK TO THIS
  • 00:11:28.020 --> 00:11:30.050
  • KIND OF TO ME, OBSCURE, IT IS
  • 00:11:30.050 --> 00:11:31.150
  • NOT OBSCURE, BUT TO ME OBSCURE
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:32.260
  • PASSAGE IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:34.260
  • WHERE MOSES IS UP ON MT. SINAI
  • 00:11:34.260 --> 00:11:36.220
  • AND THERE IS THAT FAMOUS STORY
  • 00:11:36.220 --> 00:11:38.210
  • WHERE MOSES SAYS, SHOW ME YOUR
  • 00:11:38.210 --> 00:11:40.050
  • GLORY AND GOD KIND OF SAYS NO,
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:41.190
  • YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT YET.
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:44.140
  • BUT GOD INSTEAD SAYS I WILL COME
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.110
  • DOWN AND I WILL PROCLAIM MY
  • 00:11:45.110 --> 00:11:46.110
  • NAME.
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:47.110
  • SO MOSES IS THERE.
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:49.100
  • IS HE ON THE MOUNT.
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:50.160
  • HE IS READY AND WAITING, AND WE
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:52.230
  • READ THAT GOD PROCLAIMED HIS
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:54.060
  • NAME AND AND IT IS YAHWEH, OR
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:55.190
  • YAHWEH, OR THE LORD, THE LORD IS
  • 00:11:55.190 --> 00:11:56.290
  • HOW IT IS TRANSLATED BUT THE
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:58.250
  • PROPER NAME IN HEBREW YAHWEH,
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:00.290
  • YAHWEH, THE COMPASSIONATE AND
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:03.130
  • GRACIOUS GOD SLOW TO ANGER,
  • 00:12:03.130 --> 00:12:05.220
  • ABOUND IN LOVING FAITHFULNESS,
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.200
  • MAINTAINING LOVE TO THOUSANDS
  • 00:12:07.200 --> 00:12:08.230
  • AND FORGIVING WICKEDNESS
  • 00:12:08.230 --> 00:12:10.020
  • REBELLION AND SIN, YET HE DOES
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:11.160
  • NOT LEAVE THE GUILTY UNPUNISHED.
  • 00:12:11.160 --> 00:12:13.140
  • HE PUNISHED THE CHILDREN AND THE
  • 00:12:13.140 --> 00:12:15.020
  • CHILDREN'S CHILDREN FOR THE SIN
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:16.000
  • OF THE PARENTS OF THE THIRD AND
  • 00:12:16.000 --> 00:12:16.230
  • THE FOURTH GENERATION.
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:19.250
  • NOW I READ THAT BEFORE, I READ
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:21.140
  • THE BIBLE QUITE A FEW TIMES, BUT
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:23.170
  • I DID NOT REALIZE UNTIL SITTING
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:24.240
  • THERE IN SEMINARY WITH DR. GARY
  • 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:26.130
  • BASHEER COMING BACK TO IT, THAT
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:28.090
  • IS THE MOST QUOTED VERSE IN THE
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:30.070
  • BIBLE BY THE BIBLE.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:33.000
  • MEANING, FROM THERE TO THE
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:34.070
  • RIGHT, YOU HAVE THE LIBRARY OF
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:36.180
  • SCRIPTURE, THE WRITERS OF THE
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:38.100
  • BIBLE CIRCLED BACK TO THAT MORE
  • 00:12:38.100 --> 00:12:40.020
  • AND QUOTED IT AND ALLUDE TO IT,
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:41.100
  • LAMENT IT, JONAH IS ANGRY ABOUT
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:42.020
  • IT.
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:43.130
  • ARGUE WITH GOD OVER IT.
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:44.070
  • - LIKE WHY ARE YOU BEING SO
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:45.000
  • MERCIFUL, GOD?
  • 00:12:45.190 --> 00:12:48.190
  • - JUST FASCINATING SIDE TENSION
  • 00:12:48.190 --> 00:12:49.140
  • THERE.
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:51.030
  • BUT MORE THAN ANY OTHER
  • 00:12:51.030 --> 00:12:52.100
  • SCRIPTURE IN ALL OF THE BIBLE,
  • 00:12:52.100 --> 00:12:54.090
  • SO THAT IS BASICALLY GROUND ZERO
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:55.060
  • FOR THEOLOGY OF GOD.
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:58.280
  • WHAT IS SO FASCINATING ABOUT
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:02.100
  • THIS PASSAGE IN EXODUS, IT IS
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:03.130
  • NOT HOW MOST OF US IN THE
  • 00:13:03.130 --> 00:13:04.280
  • WESTERN WORLD THINK ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:07.020
  • IF I JUST ASKED YOU, TELL ME WHO
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:08.230
  • GOD IS, MOST OF US WERE RAISED
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:13.000
  • IN SEMINARIES CALLED SYSTEMATIC
  • 00:13:13.000 --> 00:13:15.020
  • THEOLOGY, WHICH IS BASICALLY
  • 00:13:15.020 --> 00:13:16.220
  • THIS GREEK PHILOSOPHY WAY OF
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:17.140
  • THINKING ABOUT GOD.
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:19.170
  • YOU HAVE GOD AS OMNIPRESENT, HE
  • 00:13:19.170 --> 00:13:21.100
  • IS EVERYWHERE AT ONCE HE IS
  • 00:13:21.100 --> 00:13:22.060
  • OMNISCIENT.
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:23.070
  • HE IS OMNIPOTENT.
  • 00:13:23.070 --> 00:13:24.080
  • ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:25.200
  • ALL STUFF I BELIEVE.
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:29.120
  • BUT WHEN YOU ASK GOD TELL ME
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:31.020
  • ABOUT WHO YOU ARE, HE DOES NOT
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:32.120
  • START WITH ABOUT HOW HE IS THE
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:33.100
  • MOST POWERFUL BEING IN ALL THE
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:34.140
  • WORLD.
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:35.090
  • HE KNOWS EVERYTHING THERE IS TO
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.060
  • KNOW, AND THERE IS NO WHERE HE
  • 00:13:36.060 --> 00:13:37.030
  • IS NOT.
  • 00:13:37.030 --> 00:13:37.250
  • HE IS ALL PERFECT.
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:38.220
  • ALL THAT STUFF IS TRUE BUT TO
  • 00:13:38.220 --> 00:13:39.200
  • GOD, THAT IS NOT THE MOST
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:41.130
  • IMPORTANT THING.
  • 00:13:41.130 --> 00:13:42.120
  • HE STARTS WITH WHAT WE WOULD
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:43.060
  • CALL HIS PERSONALITY OR HIS
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:44.080
  • CHARACTER.
  • 00:13:44.080 --> 00:13:46.220
  • WHAT IS HE LIKE?
  • 00:13:46.220 --> 00:13:47.150
  • THAT FOR ME WAS A GAME CHANGER.
  • 00:13:47.150 --> 00:13:48.270
  • YOU ASKED EARLIER WHY IS IT
  • 00:13:48.270 --> 00:13:49.280
  • SIGNIFICANT THAT "GOD HAS A
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:51.200
  • NAME."
  • 00:13:51.200 --> 00:13:52.120
  • PEOPLE OFTEN THINK THAT IS LIKE
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:54.030
  • A PLAY, IT IS JESUS, OR GOD, IT
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:55.200
  • IS NOT WHAT I MEAN, IT IS
  • 00:13:55.200 --> 00:13:56.250
  • YAHWEH, THERE IS A HEBREW PROPER
  • 00:13:56.250 --> 00:13:58.000
  • NAME FOR GOD, WHICH IS NOT GOD,
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:13:59.260
  • WHICH IS SO FASCINATING.
  • 00:13:59.260 --> 00:14:01.250
  • YOU HAVE TO THINK WHY DOES GOD
  • 00:14:01.250 --> 00:14:03.070
  • NEED A NAME IN THE FIRST PLACE?
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:04.050
  • WHAT IS WRONG WITH GOD?
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:07.260
  • IN ENGLISH AND HEBREW, GOD IS
  • 00:14:07.260 --> 00:14:09.120
  • THIS KIND OF JUNK DRAWER WORD
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:11.040
  • THAT OUT THERE SOMEWHERE SOME
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:12.140
  • KIND OF CREATOR BEING OF THE
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:13.040
  • COSMOS.
  • 00:14:13.040 --> 00:14:14.050
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:14:14.050 --> 00:14:15.010
  • THAT DOES NOT GET YOU TO A
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.030
  • PERSON.
  • 00:14:16.030 --> 00:14:18.220
  • YAHWEH IS A PROPER NAME.
  • 00:14:21.010 --> 00:14:24.010
  • THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAY IS GOD IS
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:24.230
  • A PERSON, BY PERSON I DON'T MEAN
  • 00:14:24.230 --> 00:14:25.200
  • MAN, WOMAN OR HUMAN BEING, HE IS
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:27.260
  • A RELATIONAL BEING WHO WANT TO
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:29.150
  • RELATE TO YOU.
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:37.040
  • - VERY OFTEN WE GET HUNG UP ON
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:40.260
  • OMNIS ABOUT GOD IS.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.050
  • - WHICH IS NOT BAD.
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:43.260
  • - IT IS ALMOST LIKE YOU USE
  • 00:14:44.170 --> 00:14:47.170
  • THIS ANALOGY ABOUT YOUR WIFE IF
  • 00:14:47.170 --> 00:14:49.250
  • SOMEBODY ASKED ME ABOUT JOHN
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:51.180
  • MARK COMER HE IS 6-FOOT 3 HAS
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:55.030
  • BLOND HAIR.
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:56.090
  • - YOU RATTLE OFF FACTS.
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:05.140
  • - HE IS LOVING, I LOVES
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:10.220
  • COFFEE,.
  • 00:15:10.220 --> 00:15:11.020
  • - EVEN WHAT YOU CALL SOMEBODY
  • 00:15:11.020 --> 00:15:12.140
  • SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE DEPTH
  • 00:15:12.140 --> 00:15:14.070
  • OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:15:14.230 --> 00:15:17.230
  • - IF I CALLED YOU MR. COMER.
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:20.070
  • - THAT MEANS WE DON'T KNOW EACH
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:22.240
  • OTHER.
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:23.040
  • IF YOU CALL YOU REVEREND A TERM
  • 00:15:23.080 --> 00:15:26.080
  • OF RESPECT, I CALL YOU BOBBY.
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:28.240
  • NOT PASTOR.
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:29.270
  • BECAUSE WE HAVE DEPTH OF
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:32.060
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:32.190
  • - I CAN SAY, IT IS ALMOST AN
  • 00:15:32.210 --> 00:15:35.210
  • IRONY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WE
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:38.110
  • TRANSLATE YAHWEH AS ADONAI.
  • 00:15:39.090 --> 00:15:42.090
  • - WE TRANSLATE A PROPER NAME
  • 00:15:42.090 --> 00:15:43.220
  • WITH A TITLE.
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:45.110
  • - THAT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:46.210
  • - SO CALLING GOD THE LORD IS
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:49.040
  • NOT BAD PER SE BUT NOT A GOOD
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:51.220
  • TRANSLATION.
  • 00:15:51.220 --> 00:15:52.040
  • IT IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE ME
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:53.270
  • CALLING MY WIFE TAMMY THE WIFE.
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:58.000
  • THE WIFE.
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:16:00.070
  • NOT THE LANGUAGE OF INTIMACY.
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:02.040
  • - DO YOU THINK WHEN WE PRAY WE
  • 00:16:02.040 --> 00:16:05.040
  • SHOULD SAY YAHWEH?
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:06.190
  • - I THINK GOD IS A RELATIONAL
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:09.250
  • BEING.
  • 00:16:09.250 --> 00:16:11.000
  • HIS BASELINE IS COMPASSION.
  • 00:16:11.000 --> 00:16:12.150
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO GET HUNG UP ON
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:14.270
  • THE RIGHT WORD.
  • 00:16:14.270 --> 00:16:15.290
  • WE SHOULD PRAY AS A CHILD TO THE
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:18.200
  • FATHER.
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:19.000
  • WE SHOULD PRAY FROM A DEPTH OF
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:21.260
  • RELATIONSHIP INCOMPETENT

  • STRESS,.
  • 00:44:24.270 --> 00:44:25.080
  • - WE ALL HAVE ANXIETY NOW.

  • LOW GRADE ANXIETY, FATIGUE,
  • 00:44:27.070 --> 00:44:29.290
  • BURNOUT, EXHAUSTION, BUSYNESS.
  • 00:44:31.170 --> 00:44:34.170

  • SINS.
  • 00:44:51.170 --> 00:44:51.260
  • REMEMBER THE SAYING IN THE 90'S
  • 00:44:51.260 --> 00:44:54.050
  • WHERE TRUE LOVE IS SPELLED TIME.
  • 00:44:55.110 --> 00:44:58.110
  • WE FORGET ANY HEALTHY

  • RELATIONSHIP TAKES TIME.
  • 00:45:01.040 --> 00:45:02.150
  • WHETHER BETWEEN ME AND MY BOY OR

  • ME AND MY WIFE.
  • 00:45:05.040 --> 00:45:06.290
  • IF YOU WANT A RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:45:06.290 --> 00:45:08.190

  • HURRY AND SPIRITUALITY IS
  • 00:45:15.110 --> 00:45:18.110
  • EYE-OPENING.
  • 00:45:18.110 --> 00:45:18.230
  • I'M TRYING TO SIMPLIFY MY LIFE,
  • 00:45:18.230 --> 00:45:20.240
  • DO LESS, BUY LESS, SHOP LESS, GO
  • 00:45:21.110 --> 00:45:24.110
  • LESS, DO LESS,.
  • 00:45:24.210 --> 00:45:27.210
  • - THE TWO ARE RELATED.
  • 00:45:27.210 --> 00:45:30.210
  • - YES.
  • 00:45:30.210 --> 00:45:31.160
  • - THE REASON WE ARE IN A HURRY
  • 00:45:31.170 --> 00:45:34.170
  • WE ARE TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH.
  • 00:45:34.170 --> 00:45:36.210
  • THERE IS 24 HOURS IN A DAY, 7
  • 00:45:36.210 --> 00:45:39.150
  • DAYS A WEEK.
  • 00:45:39.150 --> 00:45:41.230
  • - THERE WAS A STORY, A MENTOR
  • 00:45:42.040 --> 00:45:45.040
  • IN PROTEGE.
  • 00:45:45.040 --> 00:45:47.120
  • HE SAID HOW DO I WALK WITH
  • 00:45:47.120 --> 00:45:49.070
  • JESUS?
  • 00:45:49.070 --> 00:45:49.230
  • THE MENTOR SAID, YOU WALK WITH
  • 00:45:49.230 --> 00:45:51.280
  • JESUS AT A WALKING PACE.
  • 00:45:51.280 --> 00:45:54.250
  • SO THERE IS THIS-- WE ARE TRYING
  • 00:45:54.250 --> 00:45:57.150
  • TO GO FASTER THAN GOD.
  • 00:45:57.150 --> 00:45:59.170
  • THE ENEMY DOES EVERYTHING IN A
  • 00:45:59.170 --> 00:46:01.140
  • HURRY.
  • 00:46:01.140 --> 00:46:02.050
  • OVERNIGHT, QUICK.
  • 00:46:02.050 --> 00:46:03.060
  • YOU LOOK AT EVERYTHING GOD DOES
  • 00:46:03.060 --> 00:46:04.260
  • THE PACE OF A TREE GROWING, THE
  • 00:46:05.170 --> 00:46:08.170
  • TIDE RISING.
  • 00:46:08.170 --> 00:46:09.210
  • THE EARTH ROTATING, HIS CREATION
  • 00:46:09.290 --> 00:46:12.290
  • HAS HIS IDEAS AND CREATIVITY ALL
  • 00:46:12.290 --> 00:46:14.280
  • OVER IT.
  • 00:46:14.280 --> 00:46:15.210
  • LOOK AT OUR OWN SELVES, THE
  • 00:46:15.210 --> 00:46:18.060
  • GREATEST OF GOD'S CREATION THE
  • 00:46:18.060 --> 00:46:20.170
  • HUMAN SOUL DEVELOPS SOLEL DEVELY
  • 00:46:23.260 --> 00:46:26.260
  • THROUGH EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:46:26.260 --> 00:46:27.290
  • - HAVE YOU NOTICED THIS, BOBBY,
  • 00:46:28.090 --> 00:46:31.090
  • IN MY EXPERIENCE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:46:31.190 --> 00:46:34.190
  • OLDER IN THE WAY OF JESUS,
  • 00:46:34.190 --> 00:46:36.050
  • WHETHER OLDER BY AGE PEOPLE
  • 00:46:36.050 --> 00:46:38.060
  • FOLLOWING JESUS FOR A LONG TIME
  • 00:46:38.140 --> 00:46:41.140
  • HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED, I STARTED
  • 00:46:41.140 --> 00:46:44.020
  • TO NOTICE A LOT OF TIMES I WILL
  • 00:46:44.020 --> 00:46:46.110
  • SAY CAN I GET COFFEE WITH YOU?
  • 00:46:49.180 --> 00:46:52.180
  • WE WILL TAKE A WALK OR STROLL I
  • 00:46:53.090 --> 00:46:56.090
  • NOTICE THEY WALK SLOW.
  • 00:46:56.090 --> 00:46:57.200
  • IT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY HAVE
  • 00:46:57.200 --> 00:46:59.250
  • ASTHMA OR ARE OUT OF SHAPE,
  • 00:46:59.250 --> 00:47:01.250
  • THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:47:01.250 --> 00:47:03.200
  • FOLLOWING JESUS HAS MADE THEM
  • 00:47:03.200 --> 00:47:06.000
  • SLOW DOWN.
  • 00:47:06.000 --> 00:47:07.000
  • I DON'T THINK JESUS WAS A POWER
  • 00:47:07.050 --> 00:47:10.050
  • WALKER.
  • 00:47:10.050 --> 00:47:10.180
  • - THEY LEARNED TO WALK IN AN
