  • AND INTO THE EVENING,
  • 00:00:59.120 --> 00:01:01.070
  • AND YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:01:01.070 --> 00:01:02.150
  • IN THESE VARIOUS
  • 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:05.110
  • DENOMINATIONAL GROUPS,
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:06.230
  • AND THE HIGH INFLUENCE
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:07.280
  • AND IMPACT THEY HAVE,
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:09.050
  • AND OFTENTIMES THEY'VE
  • 00:01:09.050 --> 00:01:10.120
  • SEEMED TO BE MILES APART
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:12.100
  • AND SUDDENLY,
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.180
  • WHAT JESUS PRAYED FOR,
  • 00:01:13.180 --> 00:01:14.240
  • THAT HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:16.000
  • HIS FAMILY WOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:01:16.000 --> 00:01:17.160
  • BE ONE WITH THE FATHER
  • 00:01:17.160 --> 00:01:19.150
  • BUT ALSO WITH ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:01:19.150 --> 00:01:21.030
  • LIKE A FAMILY,
  • 00:01:21.030 --> 00:01:22.080
  • THE UNITY HE PRAYED FOR.
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:23.100
  • AND IT IS THIS UNITY
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:24.120
  • THAT'S GOING TO BE ESSENTIAL
  • 00:01:24.120 --> 00:01:25.170
  • TO SEE AMERICA RESTORED
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:27.150
  • TO STABILITY AND SECURITY
  • 00:01:27.150 --> 00:01:29.220
  • THAT OUR HEARTS LONG FOR, TO
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:31.080
  • HAVE THE PEACE THAT WE WANT,
  • 00:01:31.080 --> 00:01:33.050
  • THE PROTECTION THAT WE WANT,
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:34.180
  • THE OPPORTUNITY THAT WE WANT.
  • 00:01:34.180 --> 00:01:36.070
  • BUT WE'RE FACING SOME
  • 00:01:36.070 --> 00:01:37.180
  • VERY CRITICAL DECISIONS.
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:38.250
  • AND THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:01:38.250 --> 00:01:40.020
  • WE'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:01:40.020 --> 00:01:41.050
  • THE RIGHT DECISIONS
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:42.080
  • AND THEN SEE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:42.080 --> 00:01:43.120
  • THAT ARE CHOSEN BY THE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:43.120 --> 00:01:44.200
  • HAVE THE COUNSEL ESSENTIAL
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:45.260
  • TO MOVE US
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:47.050
  • IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION THAT
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:48.130
  • IS BENEFICIAL FOR EVERYONE,
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:49.180
  • THESE LEADERS
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:50.220
  • NOT ONLY SHARED THEIR HEART
  • 00:01:50.220 --> 00:01:51.250
  • AND POURED OUT THEIR WISDOM
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:53.030
  • BUT I BELIEVE, BETTY,
  • 00:01:53.030 --> 00:01:54.080
  • THEY SHARED THE HEART OF GOD
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:55.240
  • AND THE VERY WISDOM OF GOD
  • 00:01:55.240 --> 00:01:57.080
  • FOR YOU TO BLESS YOU,
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:59.140
  • AND LOOK,
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:00.290
  • ENABLE YOU WHO WANT TO SHARE
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:02.160
  • THE LOVE OF GOD WITH OTHERS,
  • 00:02:02.160 --> 00:02:04.110
  • TO STILL HAVE THE ABILITY
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.210
  • AND THE WHEREWITHAL TO DO IT.
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:08.140
  • YOU CAN'T ASSIST PEOPLE
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:10.060
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:11.160
  • THE ABILITY TO ASSIST.
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:12.210
  • YOU CAN'T PUT LOVING ARMS
  • 00:02:12.210 --> 00:02:13.270
  • AROUND PEOPLE AND SUPPORT
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:15.010
  • MISSION OUTREACHES
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:16.070
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY.
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:17.080
  • AND IF WE ALLOW FREEDOM
  • 00:02:17.080 --> 00:02:19.100
  • AND OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:20.180
  • TO BE DESTROYED
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:21.210
  • AND OUR FUTURE,
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:22.240
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:23.270
  • TO HELP ANYBODY.
  • 00:02:23.270 --> 00:02:24.290
  • WE'LL SIMPLY
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.010
  • BE FIGHTING TO SURVIVE.
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.060
  • BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE
  • 00:02:27.060 --> 00:02:28.100
  • TO OFFER -- SO MUCH HOPE.
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:30.020
  • LISTEN TO GOD, I BELIEVE,
  • 00:02:30.020 --> 00:02:32.000
  • SPEAK TO YOU THROUGH
  • 00:02:32.000 --> 00:02:33.140
  • WHAT LOOMS AHEAD
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.000
  • IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS HERE?
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:41.280
  • WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR US?
  • 00:02:41.280 --> 00:02:44.000
  • OR FIVE VERY IMPORTANT THINGS
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:47.140
  • THAT I THINK WE NEED TO BE
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.280
  • INVOLVED IN AND THAT IS THIS.
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:50.210
  • AS YOU LOOK AT THE PLATFORMS
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:52.200
  • BEFORE US POLITICALLY,
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:54.280
  • I ASK ONE QUESTION,
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:57.120
  • AND THEN TWO,
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:58.170
  • THEN THREE, THEN FOUR.
  • 00:02:58.170 --> 00:02:59.280
  • WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:01.070
  • THING IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:03.070
  • WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE
  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:04.150
  • THING IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:05.290
  • WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID IT:
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.220
  • THE MOST VALUABLE THING
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:09.070
  • IN THE WORLD IS THE TRUTH.
  • 00:03:09.070 --> 00:03:10.260
  • HE SAID, "IN FACT,
  • 00:03:10.260 --> 00:03:12.070
  • IT IS SO VALUABLE
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.150
  • THAT OFTEN IT IS HIDDEN
  • 00:03:13.150 --> 00:03:14.240
  • BY A BODYGUARD OF LIES."
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:18.120
  • NATAN SHARANSKY, FORMER
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:20.070
  • ISRAELI JUSTICE MINISTER,
  • 00:03:20.070 --> 00:03:21.230
  • WHEN HE WAS INCARCERATED
  • 00:03:21.230 --> 00:03:24.020
  • FOR HIS FORMER SOVIET UNION
  • 00:03:24.020 --> 00:03:26.060
  • MADE THIS COMMENT WHEN
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:27.170
  • HE WENT TO VISIT THE PRISON
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:28.250
  • WHERE HE HAD BEEN INCARCERATED
  • 00:03:28.250 --> 00:03:30.100
  • AND THEN ASKED IF HE WOULD
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:31.170
  • GO AND LAY A WREATH
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.110
  • AT THE GRAVE OF SAKHAROV,
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:34.200
  • THE PHYSICIST WHO GAVE TO
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:36.010
  • THE SOVIETS THE ATOMIC BOMB.
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:37.110
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID:
  • 00:03:37.110 --> 00:03:38.200
  • "THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON
  • 00:03:38.200 --> 00:03:39.260
  • IN THE WORLD," SAID SAKHAROV,
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.010
  • "IS NOT THE BOMB
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.110
  • THAT I'VE GIVEN TO YOU ALL."
  • 00:03:42.110 --> 00:03:43.230
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:45.020
  • "THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:46.100
  • IN THE WORLD IS THE TRUTH."
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:47.160
  • IF THE MOST VALUABLE THING
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:48.270
  • IN THE WORLD IS THE TRUTH
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:50.090
  • AND THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:51.190
  • IN THE WORLD IS THE TRUTH,
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.270
  • HOW IMPORTANT IS THE TRUTH
  • 00:03:52.270 --> 00:03:54.090
  • ON THE PLATFORMS
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:55.210
  • OF THIS ELECTORAL PROCESS?
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:59.070
  • IF THE TRUTH DOES NOT SURVIVE
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:01.150
  • YOU MAY AS WELL
  • 00:04:01.150 --> 00:04:02.290
  • TURN THE LIGHTS OUT
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:04.180
  • BECAUSE TO SOMEBODY
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:06.030
  • WHOSE MIND IS BENT
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.110
  • TOWARD DECEIT AND A LIE, THE
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:08.220
  • DARKNESS BECOMES THE LIGHT.
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:11.270
  • YOU MAY AS WELL TURN
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.080
  • THE LIGHTS OUT THEN.
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:14.160
  • TRUTH IS AN IMPERATIVE,
  • 00:04:14.160 --> 00:04:16.100
  • SO CRITICAL IN OUR TIMES
  • 00:04:16.100 --> 00:04:18.240
  • AND WE AS THE CHURCH NEED
  • 00:04:18.240 --> 00:04:20.080
  • TO RISE UP FOR TWO REASONS:
  • 00:04:20.080 --> 00:04:22.150
  • THAT WE DEMAND OF THE
  • 00:04:22.150 --> 00:04:23.250
  • ELECTORAL PROCESS THAT TRUTH
  • 00:04:23.250 --> 00:04:25.150
  • BE SPOKEN AND TRUTHFULNESS
  • 00:04:25.150 --> 00:04:27.150
  • BE THAT BY WHICH
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:29.020
  • THE POLITICIANS LIVE, "A."
  • 00:04:29.020 --> 00:04:31.070
  • AND THEN WE OURSELVES,
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:32.190
  • AS CHRISTIAN LEADERS,
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:34.010
  • AS MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:04:34.010 --> 00:04:35.090
  • LIVE BY THE TRUTH BECAUSE
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:37.130
  • IF WE ABIDE IN HIS WORD
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:39.010
  • THEN WE KNOW THE TRUTH
  • 00:04:39.010 --> 00:04:40.100
  • AND THEN THE TRUTH INDEED
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:41.260
  • SETS US FREE.
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:43.080
  • AND NOW AS CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:44.160
  • THE TIME HAS COME
  • 00:04:44.160 --> 00:04:45.260
  • FOR US TO ASK OF THE
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.050
  • POLITICAL LEADERSHIP TRUTH
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:50.020
  • BECAUSE WITHOUT TRUTH WE LOSE
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.150
  • THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON,
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:52.250
  • WITHOUT TRUTH WE LOSE
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:54.110
  • THE MOST VALUABLE THING,
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.230
  • AND WE LIVE THAT BY EXAMPLE
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:57.150
  • IN OUR OWN LIVES.
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:58.180
  • TRUTHFULNESS.
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:04:59.270
  • TRUTH: NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.210
  • NUMBER TWO, I SAY THIS:
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:02.270
  • WHAT IS THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW
  • 00:05:02.270 --> 00:05:04.200
  • OF LOGIC?
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:06.040
  • THERE ARE THREE LAWS OF LOGIC
  • 00:05:06.040 --> 00:05:07.240
  • AND I JUST GIVE YOU
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:09.030
  • THE FIRST LAW;
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:10.110
  • ON THIS HANGS EVERYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:11.150
  • IT MAY SEEM TERRIBLY CEREBRAL
  • 00:05:11.150 --> 00:05:13.230
  • BUT BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:14.290
  • IT IS IMMENSELY PRACTICAL.
  • 00:05:14.290 --> 00:05:17.070
  • THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL LAW
  • 00:05:17.070 --> 00:05:18.170
  • OF LOGIC
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:19.220
  • IS THE LAW OF IDENTITY.
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:21.220
  • YOU MUST BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY
  • 00:05:21.220 --> 00:05:24.140
  • WHAT IT IS
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:25.240
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:27.020
  • OR YOU CANNOT SPEAK ANYTHING
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.040
  • ABOUT THAT THING.
  • 00:05:28.040 --> 00:05:29.150
  • THE LAW OF IDENTITY.
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:30.240
  • THEN YOU MOVE ON TO THE LAW
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:32.040
  • OF RATIONAL INFERENCE,
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.110
  • THE LAW OF NON-CONTRADICTION
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:34.150
  • AND SO ON BUT
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:35.240
  • THE LAW OF IDENTITY IS KEY.
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:37.010
  • I WANT TO SAY TO YOU.
  • 00:05:38.070 --> 00:05:39.150
  • IF WE, AS A NATION,
  • 00:05:39.150 --> 00:05:40.200
  • CANNOT EVEN IDENTIFY THOSE
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:42.180
  • TO DESTROY US
  • 00:05:45.210 --> 00:05:48.210
  • THEN WE'VE NOT ONLY VIOLATED
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:50.020
  • THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF ETHICS,
  • 00:05:50.020 --> 00:05:51.140
  • TRUTH, WE NOW ARE VIOLATING
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:53.190
  • THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF REASON.
  • 00:05:53.190 --> 00:05:56.010
  • THE LAW OF IDENTITY
  • 00:05:56.010 --> 00:05:58.050
  • IS THAT WHICH DEMANDS OF US
  • 00:05:58.050 --> 00:06:00.220
  • THAT WE KNOW WHAT IT IS
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:02.200
  • WE'RE REALLY TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:06:02.200 --> 00:06:05.040
  • IT IS CRITICAL
  • 00:06:05.040 --> 00:06:06.080
  • WE, AS CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:07.190
  • COME TOGETHER AND PRAY
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:10.220
  • THAT OUR POLITICAL LEADERSHIP
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:12.090
  • WILL BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:14.060
  • WHAT IT IS THAT IS REALLY
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:16.140
  • SEEKING TO THREATEN US,
  • 00:06:16.140 --> 00:06:17.290
  • ESPECIALLY SINCE IDEOLOGIES
  • 00:06:17.290 --> 00:06:19.230
  • ABOUND BOTH WITHIN AND WITHOUT
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:22.190
  • THAT SEEM TO WANT TO
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:24.030
  • PULL DOWN THE INFRASTRUCTURE.
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:26.200
  • THE THIRD THING
  • 00:06:26.200 --> 00:06:28.020
  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS A WALL
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:29.220
  • THAT WE DON'T HEAR MUCH ABOUT.
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:31.290
  • WE HEAR MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:33.040
  • MANY WALLS THESE DAYS.
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:35.200
  • IS THE WALL
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:37.010
  • OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:38.100
  • GOING TO BE TAKEN AWAY?
  • 00:06:38.100 --> 00:06:39.160
  • GOING TO BE
  • 00:06:39.160 --> 00:06:40.270
  • PUT AROUND THE CHURCH
  • 00:06:40.270 --> 00:06:42.050
  • SO THAT WE WILL BE HAMSTRUNG?
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.240
  • -- THAT WE WILL BE HANDCUFFED?
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:45.080
  • -- THAT OUR FREEDOMS
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:46.220
  • WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM US?
  • 00:06:46.220 --> 00:06:48.000
  • IF YOU AND I DON'T STAND UP
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:49.080
  • AND SPEAK WITH LOVE
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:50.280
  • AND SPEAK WITH CONCERN
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:52.220
  • THE DAY WILL COME
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.040
  • AS MARGARET THATCHER WARNED US
  • 00:06:54.040 --> 00:06:55.130
  • THAT IF THE CHURCH
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:56.160
  • DOES NOT RISE UP AND SPEAK
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:58.190
  • THE POLITICAL STRUCTURE
  • 00:06:58.190 --> 00:06:59.260
  • WILL COLLAPSE.
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.120
  • NOW WE'VE GOT TRUTH,
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:04.170
  • WE'VE GOT THE LAW OF IDENTITY,
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:06.080
  • WE'VE GOT THE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:07.170
  • FREEDOM PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:08.220
  • WHY IS THAT CRITICAL?
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:09.280
  • I'LL TELL YOU
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.030
  • WHY IT'S CRITICAL.
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:12.110
  • WE TALK ABOUT OURSELVES BEING
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:13.170
  • AS A PEOPLE OF LAWS;
  • 00:07:13.170 --> 00:07:15.140
  • THAT THIS NATION
  • 00:07:15.140 --> 00:07:16.220
  • IS A NATION OF LAWS.
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:17.230
  • I HEAR THAT AGAIN
  • 00:07:17.230 --> 00:07:18.270
  • AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.050
  • "WE ARE A NATION OF LAWS."
  • 00:07:20.050 --> 00:07:21.090
  • ALL RIGHT?
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:22.190
  • WE'RE A NATION OF LAWS.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:23.230
  • IF YOU READ RUSSELL KIRK, THE
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:24.280
  • ROOTS OF AMERICAN ORDER AND
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.100
  • SO ON HE WILL TALK ABOUT US
  • 00:07:26.100 --> 00:07:27.170
  • BEING A NATION OF LAWS.
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:29.030
  • SO WE'VE GOT THE ROOT
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:30.230
  • IS THE LAWS, THE TRUNK IS
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:32.110
  • THE POLITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE,
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:34.010
  • THE BRANCHES IS
  • 00:07:34.010 --> 00:07:35.070
  • THE OUTWORKING IN CULTURE.
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.170
  • YOU'VE GOT THE ROOTS,
  • 00:07:36.170 --> 00:07:37.180
  • THE LAWS, THE TRUNK,
  • 00:07:37.180 --> 00:07:39.020
  • THE POLITICAL STRUCTURE,
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.020
  • THE BRANCH IS THE OUTWORKING
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:41.040
  • AND CULTURE.
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.060
  • HERE IS MY QUESTION.
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:43.100
  • WHAT IS GOING TO HOLD
  • 00:07:43.100 --> 00:07:44.160
  • THE ROOTS?
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:47.140
  • THE ROOTS DON'T
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:48.200
  • HOLD THEMSELVES.
  • 00:07:48.200 --> 00:07:49.240
  • YOU NEED A RICH MORAL SOIL.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:52.130
  • THAT RICH MORAL SOIL
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:54.280
  • IS NEEDED TO HOLD THE ROOTS
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:56.260
  • AND FOR THAT RICH MORAL SOIL
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:59.050
  • THE VOICE OF THE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:01.130
  • HAS TO BE HEARD BECAUSE
  • 00:08:01.130 --> 00:08:03.220
  • THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:05.080
  • WAS NOT ONE BUT IT WAS TWO:
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:09.220
  • TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:11.050
  • WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.100
  • AND ALL YOUR MIND
  • 00:08:12.100 --> 00:08:13.150
  • AND ALL YOUR STRENGTH,
  • 00:08:14.210 --> 00:08:15.240
  • AND TO LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.000
  • AS YOURSELF.
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:18.030
  • MOSES HAD GIVEN
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.080
  • 613 COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:08:19.080 --> 00:08:20.140
  • JESUS COULD HAVE
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.190
  • REDUCED IT TO ONE.
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:22.260
  • HE DIDN'T.
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:24.010
  • HE REDUCED IT TO TWO.
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:25.090
  • THAT THERE BE
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:26.150
  • A VERTICAL DIMENSION AND
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:27.200
  • THEN THE HORIZONTAL DIMENSION.
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:28.290
  • ALL WE HEAR IN POLITICS TODAY
  • 00:08:28.290 --> 00:08:30.050
  • IS RIGHT AND LEFT.
  • 00:08:30.050 --> 00:08:31.080
  • THERE IS AN UP AND A DOWN.
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:33.180
  • AND IF WE FORGET THAT
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:34.290
  • THERE IS AN UP AND A DOWN,
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:36.110
  • WE'LL BE CHOKING EACH OTHER
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:37.220
  • FROM THE RIGHT TO THE LEFT
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:38.280
  • THAT'S WHY JESUS NEVER GOT
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:42.040
  • MESSED UP IN THAT BATTLE
  • 00:08:42.040 --> 00:08:43.220
  • BECAUSE HIS KINGDOM
  • 00:08:43.220 --> 00:08:44.270
  • WAS FROM ANOTHER WORLD.
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:46.120
  • HIS KINGDOM WAS VERTICAL,
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:48.130
  • AS SOLOMON SAID EVERYTHING
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:50.090
  • IS POINTLESS AND EMPTINESS
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:53.010
  • IF IT IS UNDER THE SUN.
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:55.020
  • IF YOU LOCK GOD OUT
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:56.190
  • IT IS ALL EMPTY
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:57.250
  • AND ALL PURPOSELESS
  • 00:08:57.250 --> 00:08:59.000
  • AND YOU ARE CHASING
  • 00:08:59.000 --> 00:09:00.190
  • AFTER THE WIND.
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:01.270
  • YOU'VE GOT THE ETHICAL NORMS
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:03.090
  • THAT ARE NEEDED,
  • 00:09:03.090 --> 00:09:04.180
  • YOU'VE GOT THE LOGICAL REALITY
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:06.000
  • THAT IS NEEDED,
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:07.140
  • YOU'VE GOT THE FREEDOM
  • 00:09:07.140 --> 00:09:08.240
  • TO WHICH GOD CALLS US
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.040
  • AND THE MORAL REASONING
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:11.140
  • TO WHICH WE MUST BE COMMITTED.
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:13.040
  • GERTRUDE HIMMELFARB
  • 00:09:13.040 --> 00:09:14.180
  • FROM COLUMBIA
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:15.280
  • HAS WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:17.050
  • ROADS TO MODERNITY .
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:18.190
  • SHE IS THIS
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:19.280
  • BRILLIANT PHILOSOPHER
  • 00:09:19.280 --> 00:09:21.090
  • WHO TAKES ONE WHOLE CHAPTER
  • 00:09:21.090 --> 00:09:24.070
  • OF ALL THINGS
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:25.180
  • TO SAY WHY AMERICA
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:27.040
  • WAS DIFFERENT TO EUROPE --
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:29.250
  • WHY AMERICA WAS DIFFERENT
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:31.130
  • TO FRANCE.
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:32.220
  • AND SHE SAYS
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:34.010
  • AMERICA WAS DIFFERENT BECAUSE
  • 00:09:34.010 --> 00:09:35.090
  • FOR THE FRENCH PHILOSOPHS,
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:36.180
  • FOR THEIR PHILOSOPHERS
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:37.260
  • REASON WAS SUPREME.
  • 00:09:37.260 --> 00:09:39.220
  • SHE SAYS, "FOR THE AMERICAN
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:41.200
  • MORAL REASONING WAS SUPREME."
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:45.270
  • IT'S AN INCREDIBLE STATEMENT
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:48.060
  • MADE BY A VERY
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:49.190
  • PROFOUND THINKER.
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:51.020
  • IT IS NOT REASON WITH HIS FEET
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:52.280
  • FIRMLY PLANTED IN MIDAIR
  • 00:09:52.280 --> 00:09:54.200
  • BUT IT IS MORAL REASONING,
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:56.200
  • THE DISTINCTION
  • 00:09:56.200 --> 00:09:58.080
  • BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG,
  • 00:09:58.080 --> 00:09:59.090
  • GOOD AND EVIL,
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:00.180
  • WHICH IS EXACTLY
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:01.240
  • WHAT ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:02.290
  • WARNED US ABOUT,
  • 00:10:02.290 --> 00:10:04.020
  • THE MORAL REASONING
  • 00:10:04.020 --> 00:10:05.030
  • THAT IS NEEDED.
  • 00:10:05.030 --> 00:10:06.040
  • SO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
  • 00:10:06.040 --> 00:10:07.200
  • I SAY TO YOU,
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.050
  • YOUR LIFE AND MY LIFE
  • 00:10:09.050 --> 00:10:10.140
  • MUST SHOW THAT.
  • 00:10:10.140 --> 00:10:13.110
  • IF I DON'T HONOR MY COMMITMENT
  • 00:10:13.110 --> 00:10:15.160
  • TO MY FAMILY,
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:17.190
  • IF I DON'T HONOR MY COMMITMENT
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:19.090
  • TO MY COLLEAGUES,
  • 00:10:19.090 --> 00:10:21.150
  • IF I DON'T HONOR MY COMMITMENT
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:23.210
  • TO WHAT GOD HIMSELF
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:24.280
  • HAS CALLED ME TO,
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:26.150
  • IT WILL ALL BE ONCE AGAIN
  • 00:10:26.150 --> 00:10:27.280
  • LIKE CHASING AFTER THE WIND.
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:30.050
  • WE NEED THAT MORAL STRENGTH,
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:32.130
  • THAT DEEP-SEATED COMMITMENT
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:35.050
  • OF THE SOUL
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.170
  • SO THAT MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:37.280
  • CAN LOOK AT US AND RECOGNIZE,
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:39.100
  • THERE IS A MAN OR WOMAN
  • 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:40.190
  • WHOSE YEA IS YEA
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:41.290
  • AND WHOSE NAY IS NAY
  • 00:10:41.290 --> 00:10:43.160
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE ROOTED
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:44.290
  • IN THE BEDROCK
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:46.120
  • OF THE UNCHANGEABLE ONE,
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:48.060
  • GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:50.260
  • WE MUST GET THAT STRAIGHT.
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:53.050
  • AND LASTLY,
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.210
  • I'VE SEEN THIS GLOBAL ART.
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:57.050
  • EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:11:00.240
  • IT'S BEEN A TORTUROUS,
  • 00:11:00.240 --> 00:11:02.060
  • AND I KEEP ASKING MYSELF
  • 00:11:05.040 --> 00:11:06.120
  • WHEN AM I GOING TO SLOW DOWN?
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:08.150
  • I'VE GOT A BEAUTIFUL WIFE,
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:09.210
  • CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:11.110
  • I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.
  • 00:11:11.110 --> 00:11:12.240
  • THERE IS NOT ANOTHER CAUSE
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.040
  • IN THE WORLD FOR WHICH
  • 00:11:14.040 --> 00:11:15.100
  • I'D BE TRAVELING LIKE THIS --
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:17.040
  • BUT FOR MY LORD.
  • 00:11:17.040 --> 00:11:18.190
  • BECAUSE OUTSIDE
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:19.270
  • OF HIS TRANSFORMING POWER
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.040
  • THERE IS NO OTHER HOPE
  • 00:11:21.040 --> 00:11:22.100
  • FOR MANKIND.
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.210
  • AS KONRAD ADENAUER SAID
  • 00:11:23.210 --> 00:11:25.010
  • TO BILLY GRAHAM YEARS AGO
  • 00:11:25.010 --> 00:11:26.090
  • LOOKING THROUGH THE WINDOW
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:27.160
  • INTO THE BROKEN CITY
  • 00:11:27.160 --> 00:11:28.240
  • OF COLOGNE;
  • 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:30.120
  • HE LOOKED AT BILLY AND SAID,
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:32.030
  • "MR. GRAHAM, DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.190
  • FROM THE DEAD?"
  • 00:11:35.000 --> 00:11:36.100
  • BILLY GRAHAM SAID,
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:37.220
  • "IF I DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:39.010
  • MR. CHANCELLOR,
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:40.080
  • I WOULD HAVE NO MESSAGE
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.130
  • HE SAID ADENAUER PAUSED.
  • 00:11:42.200 --> 00:11:44.090
  • LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW, CAME
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:45.170
  • BACK AND SAID, "MR. GRAHAM,
  • 00:11:45.170 --> 00:11:46.250
  • OUTSIDE OF THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:48.040
  • OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:49.050
  • I KNOW OF NO OTHER HOPE
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.100
  • FOR MANKIND."
  • 00:11:51.040 --> 00:11:54.040
  • BILLY GRAHAM SAID,
  • 00:11:54.040 --> 00:11:55.160
  • "I'VE NEVER FORGOTTEN THAT."
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:56.220
  • "OUTSIDE OF THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:11:56.220 --> 00:11:57.270
  • OF JESUS CHRIST, I KNOW
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:59.000
  • OF NO OTHER HOPE FOR MANKIND,"
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:00.240
  • NOT THE LEAST OF WHICH IS
  • 00:12:00.240 --> 00:12:02.110
  • THE REALITY THAT JUSTICE
  • 00:12:02.110 --> 00:12:04.040
  • WILL FINALLY HOLD SWAY.
  • 00:12:04.100 --> 00:12:07.100
  • AND SO THE QUESTION I ASK IS
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:09.150
  • WHAT DOES THE POLITICAL
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:10.290
  • LANDSCAPE HOLD FOR US?
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:12.180
  • I CONSOLE MYSELF WITH THIS.
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:15.180
  • IT WAS NOT PHARAOH
  • 00:12:15.180 --> 00:12:16.290
  • THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE,
  • 00:12:16.290 --> 00:12:18.040
  • IT WAS JOSEPH
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:19.130
  • IN PHARAOH'S PALACE.
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:20.250
  • IT WAS NOT THE PERSIAN MONARCH
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:22.020
  • THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE,
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:23.160
  • IT WAS DANIEL
  • 00:12:23.160 --> 00:12:24.250
  • WHO WAS ABLE TO TALK
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:26.120
  • TO THE PERSIAN MONARCH.
  • 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:28.250
  • IT IS AMAZING.
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:30.150
  • THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS
  • 00:12:30.150 --> 00:12:32.100
  • IT IS THOSE WHO COME CLOSE,
  • 00:12:32.100 --> 00:12:34.080
  • THOSE WHO STAND CLOSE
  • 00:12:34.080 --> 00:12:35.180
  • TO THE LEADER
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:36.250
  • AND MY PRAYER IS THAT
  • 00:12:36.250 --> 00:12:38.030
  • THAT PERSON WILL BE ELECTED
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:40.020
  • WHO WILL HAVE THE VOICE
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:42.030
  • OF GODLY PEOPLE AROUND THEM.
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:45.000
  • WE NEED THE JOSEPHS,
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:46.190
  • THE NEHEMIAHS, THE DANIELS,
  • 00:12:46.190 --> 00:12:48.150
  • THAT THEY WILL APPOINT.
  • 00:12:48.150 --> 00:12:49.240
  • THEY ARE THE ONES
  • 00:12:49.240 --> 00:12:51.040
  • WHO HAVE THE EAR OF THE KING.
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:52.260
  • AND SO NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:54.220
  • MY PRAYER IS THAT THE DANIELS,
  • 00:12:54.220 --> 00:12:56.280
  • THE JOSEPHS, AND THE ESTHERS
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:59.270
  • WILL EMERGE AND THOSE VOICES
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:02.210
  • CAN CHANGE HISTORY.
  • 00:13:02.210 --> 00:13:04.260
  • A GRANDSON CAN CHANGE
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:06.260
  • THE LIFE OF A GRANDFATHER
  • 00:13:06.260 --> 00:13:08.220
  • AND A VOICE OF A CUPBEARER
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:10.160
  • CAN CHANGE THE HEART
  • 00:13:10.160 --> 00:13:11.250
  • OF A MONARCH.
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.020
  • SO MY PRAYER IS, GOD,
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.160
  • RAISE UP THOSE KINDS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:13:14.160 --> 00:13:16.230
  • TO BE IN THE PALACE,
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:18.050
  • TO BE IN THESE PRECINCTS,
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:19.230
  • AND BE IN THOSE QUARTERS.
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.040
  • THAT SHOULD BE OUR PRAYER.
  • 00:13:21.040 --> 00:13:23.260
  • BECAUSE YOU SEE,
  • 00:13:23.260 --> 00:13:25.110
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE VOICE
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:26.260
  • OF A RIGHTEOUS ONE,
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:28.050
  • YOU GET INTOXICATED
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:29.140
  • WITH YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:30.210
  • AND YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:31.260
  • AND DRUNK WITH YOUR OWN POWER
  • 00:13:31.260 --> 00:13:33.070
  • AND YOU RUN ROUGHSHOD
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:34.160
  • OVER HUMANITY
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:35.230
  • LIKE REHOBOAM DID.
  • 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:37.200
  • WE CAN'T HAVE THAT.
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:38.210
  • WE NEED THE VOICES.
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:40.110
  • SO I BRING THIS TO A CLOSE
  • 00:13:40.110 --> 00:13:42.220
  • VERY, VERY MUCH
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:45.070
  • PARENTHETICALLY,
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:46.230
  • ONE END STARTING OFF IN SYRIA
  • 00:13:46.230 --> 00:13:49.050
  • AND NOW THIS END
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:50.240
  • FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:50.240 --> 00:13:52.170
  • SOME TIME AGO I WAS TALKING
  • 00:13:52.170 --> 00:13:54.220
  • TO A MUSLIM CLERIC,
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:57.050
  • A VERY POWERFUL MAN
  • 00:13:57.050 --> 00:13:58.180
  • WHO WAS QUITE HOSTILE,
  • 00:13:58.180 --> 00:13:59.220
  • QUITE ANGRY.
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:01.150
  • I'D ASKED HIM A QUESTION
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:02.280
  • AND HIS ANSWER WAS NOT
  • 00:14:02.280 --> 00:14:04.060
  • VERY COMFORTING TO ME.
  • 00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:06.060
  • SO I SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:14:06.060 --> 00:14:07.160
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:08.280
  • I DON'T LIKE YOUR ANSWER.
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:10.060
  • BUT I WANT
  • 00:14:10.060 --> 00:14:11.160
  • TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:12.230
  • WHERE WE WERE SITTING,
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:14.020
  • NOT FAR FROM HERE, IS A HILL;
  • 00:14:14.050 --> 00:14:17.050
  • 5.000 YEARS AGO
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:18.200
  • TOOK HIS SON UP THAT HILL."
  • 00:14:20.240 --> 00:14:22.270
  • I SAID, "PLEASE SIR,
  • 00:14:22.270 --> 00:14:24.010
  • LET'S NOT DEBATE
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:25.070
  • WHICH SON RIGHT NOW
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.090
  • I SAID,
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:29.090
  • "HE TOOK HIS SON UP THE HILL
  • 00:14:29.090 --> 00:14:30.150
  • AND WAS GOING TO SACRIFICE HIM
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:31.250
  • AS AN EXPRESSION OF FAITH
  • 00:14:31.250 --> 00:14:33.060
  • BEFORE GOD."
  • 00:14:33.060 --> 00:14:34.200
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:14:34.200 --> 00:14:35.280
  • "I REMEMBER THE STORY."
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:36.290
  • I SAID, "BUT AS THE AX
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.050
  • WAS ABOUT TO COME DOWN
  • 00:14:38.050 --> 00:14:39.070
  • GOD STOPS THAT ARM."
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:40.090
  • HE SAID, "THAT'S RIGHT."
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:41.120
  • I SAID, "WHAT DID GOD SAY?"
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:42.160
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE THE ANSWER.
  • 00:14:42.160 --> 00:14:43.170
  • GOD SAID, "STOP!
  • 00:14:43.170 --> 00:14:44.220
  • I MYSELF WILL PROVIDE."
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:45.280
  • HE SAID, "THAT'S RIGHT!"
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:47.060
  • I SAID,
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:48.150
  • "VERY CLOSE TO WHERE
  • 00:14:48.150 --> 00:14:49.240
  • YOU AND I ARE SITTING,
  • 00:14:49.240 --> 00:14:51.020
  • SHEIKH, IS A HILL.
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:53.130
  • TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO
  • 00:14:53.130 --> 00:14:55.090
  • GOD TOOK HIS OWN SON
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:56.230
  • UP THAT HILL
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:58.070
  • AND THIS TIME
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:14:59.120
  • THE AX DID NOT STOP."
  • 00:15:00.030 --> 00:15:03.030
  • HE JUST STARED AT ME.
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:04.140
  • I SAID, "SHEIKH, UNTIL
  • 00:15:04.140 --> 00:15:05.190
  • YOU AND I RECEIVE THE SON
  • 00:15:05.190 --> 00:15:08.080
  • GOD HAS PROVIDED,
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.010
  • WE'LL BE OFFERING
  • 00:15:10.010 --> 00:15:11.120
  • OUR OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:12.230
  • ON THE BATTLEFIELDS
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:13.260
  • OF THIS WORLD
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:14.270
  • FOR LAND AND POSITION
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:16.110
  • AND POWER AND PRESTIGE."
  • 00:15:17.020 --> 00:15:20.020
  • HE JUST STARED AT ME.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:22.160
  • AND WHEN WE LEFT,
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:24.240
  • HE TURNED ME AROUND
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:26.050
  • BEFORE I GOT INTO THE CAR
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:27.130
  • AND GAVE ME A KISS
  • 00:15:27.130 --> 00:15:28.260
  • ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FACE.
  • 00:15:28.260 --> 00:15:30.000
  • HE SAID, "MR. ZACHARIAS,
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:31.070
  • YOU'RE A GOOD MAN.
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:32.140
  • YOU'RE A GOOD MAN."
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:34.250
  • I SAID, "I HOPE
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:36.110
  • I SEE YOU AGAIN SOME DAY.
  • 00:15:36.110 --> 00:15:38.170
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO WIN PEOPLE
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:41.080
  • BY MOCKING THEM.
  • 00:15:41.080 --> 00:15:43.140
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO WIN PEOPLE
  • 00:15:43.140 --> 00:15:44.270
  • BY DERIDING THEM.
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:46.290
  • WE'VE GOT TO PRESENT
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:48.140
  • THE WINSOMENESS AND
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:49.230
  • THE BEAUTY OF THE MESSAGE
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:52.150
  • THAT GOD WOULD HAVE US SHARE.
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:54.130
  • PEOPLE ARE DRAWN TO THE BEAUTY
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:56.160
  • AND THE LOVE OF WHAT
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:57.270
  • THEY SO LONG FOR.
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:15:59.230
  • AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:01.190
  • THAT'S YOUR CALLING AND MINE.
  • 00:16:01.190 --> 00:16:04.150
  • UNARMED TRUTH
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:05.250
  • AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
  • 00:16:05.250 --> 00:16:07.050
  • ON THE ONE SIDE,
  • 00:16:07.050 --> 00:16:08.120
  • THE CROSS
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:10.000
  • ON A HILL CALLED CALVARY
  • 00:16:10.000 --> 00:16:12.140
  • AS THE POINT
  • 00:16:12.140 --> 00:16:13.270
  • FROM WHICH WE ALL BEGIN.
  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:15.100
  • THE DAYS OF JESUS WERE DARK
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:18.180
  • BUT SAUL OF TARSUS TO PAUL
  • 00:16:18.180 --> 00:16:20.260
  • CHANGED HISTORY.
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:23.000
  • IS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THAT
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:24.150
  • TO HAPPEN IN OUR TIME?
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:26.290
  • I THINK NOT.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.100
  • IT COULD TAKE ONE PERSON
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:29.220
  • TO CHANGE THE FUTURE.
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:31.250
  • YOU'RE HERE TO BE COUNTED
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:33.200
  • AMONG THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:34.280
  • I PRAY THAT
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:36.120
  • A FEW YEARS FROM NOW
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:37.180
  • WE'LL LOOK BACK AND SAY,
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:38.280
  • GOD SURPRISED US ALL.
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:40.240
  • AND WE HAVE A TRIUMPH AND
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:42.170
  • A GLORIOUS MESSAGE TO GIVE.
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:46.120
  • TEN YEARS AGO NOBODY
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.270
  • WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT
