  • Announcer: NEXT! BEST-SELLING AUTHOR AND SPEAKER,
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:08.200
  • LISA BEVERE HELPS US LIVE WITHOUT RIVAL.
  • 00:00:08.230 --> 00:00:11.290
  • - REALLY, WHEN WE BEGIN TO WORSHIP GOD,
  • 00:00:12.020 --> 00:00:14.150
  • GOD ACTUALLY BEGINS TO IDENTIFY US.
  • 00:00:14.180 --> 00:00:16.270
  • THE BOOK OF ROMANS TALK ABOUT WHEN WE DON'T WORSHIP GOD
  • 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:20.050
  • WE FORGET HOW TO BE HUMAN;
  • 00:00:20.080 --> 00:00:22.050
  • AND WOMEN FORGET HOW TO BE WOMEN
  • 00:00:22.080 --> 00:00:24.080
  • AND MEN FORGET HOW TO BE MEN.
  • 00:00:24.110 --> 00:00:26.160
  • MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER CAPTURE THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:30.130
  • Announcer: LEARNING TO EMBRACE YOUR IDENTITY AND PURPOSE
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:32.270
  • IN AN AGE OF CONFUSION AND COMPARISON.
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:47.140
  • James: THANK YOU!
  • 00:00:58.220 --> 00:01:01.240
  • YOU MAKE US FEEL SO WELCOME
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:02.250
  • AND WE WELCOME YOU
  • 00:01:02.250 --> 00:01:03.260
  • TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:03.260 --> 00:01:04.280
  • I'M JAMES ROBISON.
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.000
  • TO SHARE THIS TIME WITH YOU.
  • 00:01:07.040 --> 00:01:08.030
  • LISA BEVERE
  • 00:01:08.030 --> 00:01:09.090
  • AND HER HUSBAND, JOHN,
  • 00:01:09.090 --> 00:01:10.150
  • THEY'RE LIKE FAMILY;
  • 00:01:10.150 --> 00:01:11.160
  • I THINK EVEN BEYOND,
  • 00:01:11.160 --> 00:01:12.230
  • YOU MIGHT SAY,
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:13.240
  • THE FAMILY OF FAITH.
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.220
  • THEY'RE LIKE CONNECTED FAMILY
  • 00:01:15.220 --> 00:01:18.060
  • AND LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:20.050
  • I THINK LISA IS PROBABLY
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:21.240
  • ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:23.120
  • GIFTED COMMUNICATORS
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:24.180
  • THAT I'VE EVER HEARD.
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:25.230
  • WOULD YOU AGREE WITH THAT?
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:26.270
  • Betty: ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:28.030
  • James: WE'VE WATCHED
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:29.070
  • THE JOURNEY IN THE LORD
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:31.010
  • AND IT'S BEEN BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:32.070
  • TO WATCH.
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:33.090
  • THIS BOOK, WITHOUT RIVAL ,
  • 00:01:33.090 --> 00:01:35.130
  • WE'RE ACTUALLY,
  • 00:01:35.130 --> 00:01:36.200
  • WE'RE GOING TO DO TWO DAYS
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:37.240
  • OF PROGRAMMING WITH LISA
  • 00:01:37.240 --> 00:01:38.260
  • AND SHE IS GOING TO TALK
  • 00:01:38.260 --> 00:01:40.010
  • ABOUT THIS BOOK.
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:41.050
  • AND I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:42.100
  • GIVE HER A REAL WARM WELCOME
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:43.180
  • TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:43.180 --> 00:01:44.270
  • WOULD YOU DO THAT?
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:46.050
  • [Applause]
  • 00:01:46.050 --> 00:01:47.120
  • WELL, WE DO FEEL LIKE
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:48.150
  • YOU ARE PART OF OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:53.150
  • Lisa: I RECEIVE THAT.
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:55.070
  • James: YOU DID A GREAT JOB
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:56.110
  • AT OUR CHURCH, AT GATEWAY
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:57.140
  • RECENTLY WHEN YOU SPOKE.
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:58.170
  • Lisa: THANK YOU.
  • 00:01:58.170 --> 00:01:59.210
  • James: I WANT YOU TO SHARE --
  • 00:01:59.210 --> 00:02:01.110
  • I KNOW WE'RE GOING TO HEAR
  • 00:02:01.110 --> 00:02:02.260
  • YOUR HEART BUT I KNOW
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:04.030
  • YOU FEEL THE WAY I DO.
  • 00:02:04.030 --> 00:02:05.040
  • I WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:06.040
  • TO REALLY HEAR GOD'S HEART
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:07.090
  • AND I KNOW THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:08.120
  • YOU'RE SEEKING TO EXPRESS,
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:09.160
  • WHAT HE SAID TO YOU.
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:10.200
  • SO YOU JUST TAKE IT
  • 00:02:10.200 --> 00:02:11.220
  • AND HELP US UNDERSTAND
  • 00:02:11.220 --> 00:02:13.030
  • WHAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO GET
  • 00:02:13.030 --> 00:02:14.140
  • WHEN THEY READ THE BOOK.
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:15.250
  • I TOTALLY BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:02:17.000 --> 00:02:18.100
  • IDENTITY IS A HUGE ISSUE
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:20.060
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:21.130
  • PEOPLE ARE TRYING
  • 00:02:21.130 --> 00:02:22.170
  • THERE HAS NEVER BEEN
  • 00:02:24.050 --> 00:02:25.160
  • MORE INFORMATION
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:26.200
  • AND YET MORE CONFUSION
  • 00:02:26.200 --> 00:02:28.120
  • AT ANY OTHER TIME IN LIFE.
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:30.000
  • THIS IS WHY PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:31.290
  • TRYING TO SELF-IDENTIFY.
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:33.130
  • THEY'RE TRYING TO FIND OUT
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:34.150
  • WHO THEY ARE.
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:35.150
  • THEY'RE TRYING
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:36.170
  • TO CONNECT TO GROUPS
  • 00:02:36.170 --> 00:02:37.230
  • BUT THERE IS AN IDENTITY
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:38.220
  • THAT GOD GIVES US
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:39.250
  • THAT IS MORE POWERFUL.
  • 00:02:39.250 --> 00:02:40.270
  • JAMES AND BETTY,
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:41.270
  • I DO GET TO TRAVEL.
  • 00:02:41.270 --> 00:02:43.000
  • IT IS AMAZING
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:44.070
  • BUT I DON'T DO JET LAG
  • 00:02:44.070 --> 00:02:45.180
  • NECESSARILY WELL.
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:47.120
  • I WAS COMING HOME
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:48.180
  • FROM SOUTH KOREA,
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:49.250
  • I WAS TRYING TO FINISH UP
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:50.270
  • GIRLS WITH SWORDS
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:51.260
  • AND I FELL ASLEEP
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:52.290
  • AT MY LAPTOP.
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:53.280
  • AND EIGHT PAGES LATER
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.250
  • OF THE LETTER T I DID
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:57.050
  • THE CHIN DROP AND I WOKE UP
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:58.070
  • AND I WAS LIKE OH, MY GOSH!
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:02:59.250
  • I'VE BEEN ASLEEP.
  • 00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:01.020
  • I'M GOING TO GO LAY DOWN.
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:02.160
  • AND I WAS JUST FALLING ASLEEP
  • 00:03:02.160 --> 00:03:04.200
  • WHEN I HEARD
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:06.040
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT SAY,
  • 00:03:06.040 --> 00:03:07.030
  • "I DO NOT LOVE
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:09.080
  • MY CHILDREN EQUALLY."
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:11.200
  • I PUSHED OFF MY BED
  • 00:03:11.200 --> 00:03:12.240
  • AND I SAT UP AND I WAS LIKE
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:14.010
  • WAIT, THAT'S BLASPHEMY.
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:15.050
  • YOU HAVE TO LOVE US
  • 00:03:15.050 --> 00:03:16.090
  • ALL THE SAME.
  • 00:03:16.090 --> 00:03:17.130
  • AND I HEARD THE
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:18.170
  • HOLY SPIRIT SAY, "I DON'T."
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:19.210
  • HE SAID, "SAME WOULD MEAN
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.250
  • ONE OF MY CHILDREN WERE
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:22.120
  • EXCHANGEABLE OR REPLACEABLE."
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:25.020
  • HE SAID, "EQUAL WOULD MEAN
  • 00:03:25.020 --> 00:03:27.210
  • THAT MY LOVE
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:29.060
  • COULD BE MEASURED.
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:30.100
  • AND LISA,
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:31.090
  • MY LOVE IS IMMEASURABLE."
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:32.290
  • HE SAID, "I DO NOT LOVE
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:34.090
  • MY CHILDREN EQUALLY.
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:36.040
  • I LOVE THEM UNIQUELY."
  • 00:03:36.040 --> 00:03:38.140
  • AND WHEN I HEARD THAT WORD
  • 00:03:38.140 --> 00:03:39.290
  • UNIQUE, JAMES AND BETTY,
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:41.060
  • IT JUST EXPLODED IN MY SPIRIT.
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:42.110
  • I THOUGHT, WAIT A MINUTE!
  • 00:03:42.110 --> 00:03:43.210
  • WHAT DOES THAT WORD
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:45.020
  • SO I WENT AND LOOKED
  • 00:03:46.080 --> 00:03:47.120
  • IN THE DICTIONARY.
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:48.180
  • AND THE FIRST TIER
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:49.190
  • OF DEFINITION IS:
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:50.180
  • SOLE REPRESENTATIVE OF.
  • 00:03:50.180 --> 00:03:52.130
  • TO REPRESENT GOD
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:54.260
  • THE WAY WE DO.
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:56.040
  • NOBODY ELSE
  • 00:03:56.040 --> 00:03:57.060
  • REPRESENTS HIS LOVE,
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:03:58.050
  • HIS CARE, HIS NURTURE.
  • 00:03:58.050 --> 00:04:00.050
  • THE SECOND ONE IS "PROTOTYPE,"
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:02.010
  • WHICH ALSO MEANS
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:03.090
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:04.220
  • MASS PRODUCED.
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:05.280
  • THE THIRD ONE
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:07.030
  • IS WHAT GOT MY ATTENTION.
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:08.060
  • IT WAS: WITHOUT RIVAL .
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:09.170
  • THERE IS NO COMPETITION
  • 00:04:09.170 --> 00:04:11.140
  • FOR WHO YOU ARE TO GOD.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:13.160
  • IF YOU ARE A SON,
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:14.180
  • YOU ARE A SON
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:15.200
  • OF THE MOST HIGH GOD
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:16.220
  • AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:17.260
  • LIKE YOU.
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:18.280
  • IF YOU ARE DAUGHTER,
  • 00:04:18.280 --> 00:04:20.000
  • YOU'RE A DAUGHTER
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.020
  • OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:22.040
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE MORE
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:23.050
  • WELL-LOVED OR MORE EFFICIENT
  • 00:04:23.050 --> 00:04:24.100
  • IF YOU WERE A FEMALE
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:25.120
  • IF YOU WERE ACTUALLY A MALE
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.150
  • OR A MALE
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:27.140
  • IF YOU'RE ACTUALLY A FEMALE.
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.180
  • SO THIS IDENTITY
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:30.160
  • WITHOUT RIVAL IS SOMETHING
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:32.080
  • THAT WE NEED TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:33.190
  • LAY A HOLD OF.
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:35.120
  • WE SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:38.000
  • THAT WE HAVE AN IDENTITY
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.090
  • WITHOUT RIVAL BECAUSE
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:40.120
  • WE SERVE A GOD WITHOUT RIVAL.
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.290
  • SO I TOOK THE FIRST SECTION
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:43.290
  • OF THE BOOK TO UNPACK
  • 00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:45.110
  • THE IDENTITY WITHOUT RIVAL,
  • 00:04:45.110 --> 00:04:46.200
  • A GOD WITHOUT RIVAL
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:48.220
  • AND A PROMISE WITHOUT RIVAL.
  • 00:04:48.220 --> 00:04:50.250
  • WE HAVE BEEN TRUSTED
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:52.000
  • WITH PROMISES OF GOD.
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:53.230
  • I LOVE THE WAY
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:55.020
  • C.S. LEWIS SAID IT:
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:56.040
  • "IF YOU UNPACK THESE PROMISES
  • 00:04:56.040 --> 00:04:58.110
  • THEN OUR DESIRES
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:04:59.180
  • ARE TOO WEAK NOT TOO STRONG."
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:02.000
  • WHEN WE LOOK AT ALL THE GREAT
  • 00:05:02.000 --> 00:05:03.290
  • AND PRECIOUS PROMISES,
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.060
  • EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.030
  • TO LIFE AND GODLINESS
  • 00:05:07.030 --> 00:05:08.270
  • WAS GIVEN TO US.
  • 00:05:08.270 --> 00:05:10.140
  • SO I TOOK THESE THINGS AND
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:11.170
  • I TALK ABOUT THIS IDENTITY.
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:13.230
  • WE HAVE A CULTURE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:16.080
  • THAT IS ENCOURAGING PEOPLE
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:17.170
  • WHEN I WAS WRITING THIS BOOK
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:21.130
  • I WROTE IT OVER A YEAR AGO.
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:23.070
  • WHEN I WAS WRITING THIS BOOK
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:25.020
  • WHEN WAS THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:28.020
  • ANYBODY SELF-IDENTIFIED?
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.070
  • THE FIRST ACCOUNT
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:30.150
  • OF SELF-IDENTIFICATION
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:32.010
  • IS ACTUALLY LUCIFER.
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:34.140
  • LUCIFER WHO WAS PERFECT
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:36.290
  • IN FORM, PERFECT IN WISDOM,
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:39.000
  • WALKED IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:40.270
  • AND THE ONLY CREATURE
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:42.070
  • THAT ACTUALLY KNEW HIS WAYS
  • 00:05:42.070 --> 00:05:44.140
  • DECIDED HE WOULD
  • 00:05:44.140 --> 00:05:45.220
  • REMAKE HIMSELF.
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:47.040
  • HE SAID, "I WILL MAKE MYSELF
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:49.100
  • LIKE THE MOST HIGH."
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:51.210
  • AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:53.140
  • HIS DECIDING
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:54.290
  • TO REMAKE HIMSELF
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:56.100
  • WAS HIS UNMAKING.
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:58.100
  • WE LOOK IN BOTH
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.220
  • THE BOOK OF ISAIAH
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:00.280
  • AND THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:01.270
  • AND WE ARE CHALLENGED WHEN
  • 00:06:01.270 --> 00:06:03.010
  • WE HEAR, "SHOULD THE CLAY
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:04.090
  • SAY TO THE POTTER,
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.200
  • 'YOU'VE MADE ME WRONG.'
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.100
  • AND YET THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.150
  • YOU'RE DOING WITH ME.
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:09.150
  • YOU'VE GOT EVERYTHING
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:10.150
  • UPSIDE DOWN."
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:11.160
  • THE NEXT TIME
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:12.170
  • WE SEE A HISTORY
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:13.210
  • OF SELF-IDENTIFICATION
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:14.220
  • IS ADAM AND EVE.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.070
  • SATAN CAME TO THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.110
  • "YOU CAN BE LIKE GOD,
  • 00:06:17.110 --> 00:06:18.220
  • APART FROM GOD.
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:20.010
  • YOU CAN BE YOUR OWN MASTER."
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:21.190
  • AND NOW IT'S PLAYING OUT
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.050
  • ONCE AGAIN WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:23.050 --> 00:06:24.290
  • ARE SAYING, "I'M GOING
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.070
  • TO BE MY OWN MASTER.
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:27.100
  • I'M GOING TO REMAKE MYSELF."
  • 00:06:27.100 --> 00:06:29.260
  • AND YET, I'M NOT THINKING
  • 00:06:29.260 --> 00:06:32.110
  • THAT THIS IS BECAUSE
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:34.060
  • PEOPLE ARE EVIL OR WRONG.
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:36.160
  • I THINK THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:06:36.160 --> 00:06:38.020
  • ARE DESPERATE FOR IDENTITY.
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:39.170
  • I THINK PEOPLE
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:40.200
  • ARE SO DEEPLY WOUNDED
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:42.150
  • THAT THEY'RE SAYING, "I'M
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:43.190
  • GOING TO DO ANYTHING I CAN
  • 00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:44.200
  • TO MAKE MYSELF FEEL WHOLE
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:47.160
  • AND MAKE MYSELF
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:48.280
  • FEEL LOVED AGAIN."
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:50.110
  • SO REALLY, WHEN WE BEGIN
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:51.150
  • TO WORSHIP GOD,
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.060
  • GOD ACTUALLY BEGINS
  • 00:06:53.060 --> 00:06:54.200
  • TO IDENTIFY US.
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:55.220
  • THE BOOK OF ROMANS
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:56.250
  • TALKS ABOUT WHEN
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:57.280
  • WE DON'T WORSHIP GOD
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:06:59.010
  • WE FORGET HOW TO BE HUMAN;
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:00.070
  • AND WOMEN FORGET
  • 00:07:00.070 --> 00:07:01.100
  • HOW TO BE WOMEN
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:02.100
  • AND MEN FORGET
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:03.150
  • HOW TO BE MEN.
  • 00:07:03.150 --> 00:07:04.230
  • AND MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.170
  • CAPTURE THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.170
  • SO WHEN WE BEGIN
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:09.250
  • TO MESS WITH GENDER,
  • 00:07:09.250 --> 00:07:11.090
  • WE BEGIN TO UNDERMINE
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:12.280
  • THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:14.090
  • A LOT OF TIMES
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:15.160
  • IN THE CHURCH THOUGH
  • 00:07:15.160 --> 00:07:16.200
  • YOU SEE THAT WOMEN
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:17.270
  • AREN'T GIVEN VALUE,
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:18.270
  • THEY'RE NOT GIVEN IDENTITY.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.150
  • THEY DON'T HAVE
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:21.270
  • A CONNECTION WITH GOD.
  • 00:07:21.270 --> 00:07:23.010
  • THEY AREN'T TOLD
  • 00:07:23.010 --> 00:07:24.080
  • THEY CAN EXPRESS.
  • 00:07:24.080 --> 00:07:25.090
  • THIS IS SOMETHING
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:26.090
  • YOU'VE DONE FOR ME FOR YEARS,
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:27.130
  • WHAT YOU'VE DONE FOR BETH,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:28.150
  • YOU'VE DONE FOR SO MANY
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:29.170
  • OF GOD'S DAUGHTERS.
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:30.190
  • YOU'VE SAID, "I IDENTIFY
  • 00:07:30.190 --> 00:07:31.210
  • THAT YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:32.270
  • JUST SOMEBODY'S WIFE,"
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:33.270
  • WHICH IS AN AMAZING PRIVILEGE
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:34.260
  • -- "OR SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:36.010
  • BUT YOU'RE A DAUGHTER
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.060
  • OF THE MOST HIGH GOD
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:38.120
  • AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:39.110
  • HAS VALUE."
  • 00:07:39.110 --> 00:07:40.140
  • SO I REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:41.180
  • WE HAVE A GENERATION
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:42.260
  • THAT IS WATCHING AND WAITING
  • 00:07:42.260 --> 00:07:44.050
  • FOR THE CHURCH
  • 00:07:44.050 --> 00:07:45.180
  • TO BE THE CHURCH --
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:47.000
  • TO BE LOVING, TO BE KIND.
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:49.100
  • RIGHT NOW WE'RE KNOWN
  • 00:07:49.100 --> 00:07:50.130
  • FOR WHAT WE ARE AGAINST.
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:51.190
  • IT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:52.230
  • THE REALITY OF OUR GOD,
  • 00:07:52.230 --> 00:07:55.010
  • AND IT TALKS ABOUT THE REALITY
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:56.120
  • OF OUR DAY,
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.190
  • WHICH IS WHERE WE'RE AT.
  • 00:07:57.190 --> 00:07:58.250
  • PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:00.040
  • AND THEY'RE TRYING
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:01.080
  • TO SELF-IDENTIFY,
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:02.120
  • AND THEN THE REALITY OF US.
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:03.170
  • AND WE IN THE CHURCH,
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:04.250
  • IF WE BEGIN TO ACTUALLY SOW
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.200
  • WHO GOD REALLY IS, THAT
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:08.090
  • HE CAN TAKE US BY THE HAND
  • 00:08:08.090 --> 00:08:09.230
  • AND FLIP OUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:09.230 --> 00:08:11.020
  • WHEN I WAS PREACHING
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:12.190
  • AT GATEWAY I SHARED
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:13.270
  • SOME OF MY STORY
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:15.050
  • THAT WHEN I GOT SAVED,
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.150
  • GOD DIDN'T JUST
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.170
  • TAKE ME BY THE HAND
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:18.220
  • AND DO A 10 DEGREE
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:19.270
  • COURSE CORRECTION.
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:21.020
  • HE TOOK ME BY THE HAND
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.070
  • AND HE LED ME INTO
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:23.190
  • A RADICAL LIFE TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:08:24.020 --> 00:08:27.020
  • AND A LOT OF TIMES RIGHT NOW
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:29.130
  • WHAT WE SEE IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:30.250
  • COURSE CORRECTION.
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:34.080
  • AND THE WORLD IS HOPING
  • 00:08:34.080 --> 00:08:35.260
  • THAT WHAT WE HAVE IS REAL
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:37.160
  • BUT THEY WANT TO SEE
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:38.240
  • I REMEMBER
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:42.050
  • WHEN MY SORORITY SISTERS,
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:43.110
  • WHEN I WENT BACK
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:44.120
  • AND I TOLD THEM
  • 00:08:44.120 --> 00:08:45.130
  • I WAS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:08:45.130 --> 00:08:46.180
  • THEY WERE ALL LIKE
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:47.250
  • "OH, NO! WE DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:48.270
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:49.280
  • WE LIKED YOU MEAN.
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:51.040
  • WE LIKED YOU DRUNK.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.080
  • WE LIKED YOU RUNNING AROUND
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:53.100
  • AND BEING WILD."
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:54.120
  • THEY ALL DOUBTED
  • 00:08:54.120 --> 00:08:55.180
  • WHETHER I HAD ACTUALLY
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:56.180
  • REALLY CONVERTED.
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:57.240
  • UNTIL THE DAY CAME
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:08:58.260
  • THAT I ACTUALLY HAD A CHANCE
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:00.020
  • TO PREACH MY FIRST SERMON
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:01.020
  • AND IT CAME
  • 00:09:01.020 --> 00:09:02.050
  • AT A VERY UNEXPECTED TIME.
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:03.080
  • I REMEMBER WE HAD ALL PULLED
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:04.110
  • ALL NIGHTERS TRYING TO STUDY.
  • 00:09:04.110 --> 00:09:05.140
  • ONE OF THE --
  • 00:09:05.140 --> 00:09:06.170
  • I'M NOT MAKING FUN
  • 00:09:06.170 --> 00:09:07.200
  • OF ELEMENTARY ED;
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:08.230
  • I WISH I ACTUALLY HAD
  • 00:09:08.230 --> 00:09:09.260
  • ELEMENTARY ED EDUCATION
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:10.290
  • BUT I WAS STUDYING
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.020
  • INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:13.050
  • SO I HAD PULLED
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:14.080
  • A STAT STUDY OVERNIGHT.
  • 00:09:14.080 --> 00:09:15.110
  • SHE CAME IN
  • 00:09:15.110 --> 00:09:16.140
  • AND SHE LOOKED AT ALL OF US
  • 00:09:16.140 --> 00:09:17.250
  • AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:19.080
  • "Y'ALL LOOK LIKE YOU'VE
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:20.140
  • BEEN RUN OVER BY A CAR!"
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.190
  • WE'RE LIKE,
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:22.190
  • "THANK YOU! THANK YOU!"
  • 00:09:22.190 --> 00:09:23.210
  • SHE SAID, "NO, REALLY!
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:24.230
  • YOU ALL LOOK TERRIBLE."
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:25.250
  • I SAID, "THANK YOU."
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:26.270
  • SHE JUST KEPT PUSHING IT.
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:27.290
  • ALL OF THE SUDDEN
  • 00:09:27.290 --> 00:09:28.290
  • BEFORE I KNEW WHAT HAPPENED,
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:30.020
  • THAT UNREGENERATED,
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:31.050
  • NON-CONFORMING TO CHRIST
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:32.210
  • THING IN ME ROSE UP
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:33.290
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:35.010
  • "WHY ARE YOU SUCH A..."
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:36.250
  • AND I DROPPED A CUSS WORD.
  • 00:09:36.250 --> 00:09:38.040
  • SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:39.280
  • "I THOUGHT
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.040
  • YOU WERE A CHRISTIAN!
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.080
  • YOU'RE NOT A CHRISTIAN."
  • 00:09:42.080 --> 00:09:43.110
  • EVERYBODY FROZE IN THE ROOM.
  • 00:09:43.110 --> 00:09:44.170
  • ONE OF MY SORORITY SISTERS
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:46.000
  • SAID, "THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:09:46.000 --> 00:09:47.180
  • I ALMOST CALLED HER
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:48.220
  • THE SAME THING."
  • 00:09:48.220 --> 00:09:49.260
  • SHE STORMED OUT OF THE ROOM.
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:51.020
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT I DID,
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:52.080
  • JAMES AND BETTY?
  • 00:09:52.080 --> 00:09:53.120
  • I STOOD UP
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:54.160
  • IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:55.200
  • AND I SAID, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:09:55.200 --> 00:09:56.260
  • I'M COMPLETELY OUT OF LINE."
  • 00:09:56.260 --> 00:09:58.000
  • AND THEY SAID
  • 00:09:58.000 --> 00:09:59.040
  • THAT IS WHEN THEY KNEW
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.080
  • I WAS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.100
  • NOT BY READING MY BIBLE,
  • 00:10:01.100 --> 00:10:02.210
  • NOT MY PRAYING,
  • 00:10:02.210 --> 00:10:04.080
  • NOT BY SAYING
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:05.180
  • "PRAISE THE LORD"
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:06.280
  • BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:10:06.280 --> 00:10:07.290
  • THEY HAD SEEN ME BE HUMBLE.
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:09.010
  • THE WORLD IS NOT LOOKING
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:10.020
  • FOR US TO BE PERFECT
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:11.010
  • BUT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR US
  • 00:10:11.010 --> 00:10:12.040
  • TO BE HUMBLE.
  • 00:10:12.040 --> 00:10:13.080
  • AND UNTIL WE HUMBLE OURSELVES
  • 00:10:13.080 --> 00:10:14.120
  • AND GET OUR IDENTITY FROM GOD
  • 00:10:14.120 --> 00:10:16.140
  • AND NOT BY
  • 00:10:16.140 --> 00:10:17.210
  • JUDGING OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:18.260
  • UNTIL WE CAN ACTUALLY
  • 00:10:18.260 --> 00:10:20.010
  • SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE,
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.060
  • THEN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:23.190
  • WAITING AND WATCHING FOR US
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:25.130
  • TO BE THAT EXAMPLE
  • 00:10:25.130 --> 00:10:26.200
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:28.020
  • James: WHEN WE LOOK AT SOMEONE
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.160
  • WHO IS CONFUSED ABOUT
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:30.210
  • THEIR IDENTITY SEXUALLY,
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.230
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:32.260
  • CONFUSED ABOUT THE DESIRES
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:33.280
  • OF THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.070
  • WHAT IF WE TOOK
  • 00:10:36.070 --> 00:10:37.170
  • ALL THE DESIRES AND APPETITES
  • 00:10:37.170 --> 00:10:38.170
  • THAT HOLD PEOPLE IN A GRIP,
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:40.130
  • BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:42.250
  • "I'M ATTRACTED TO CHILDREN"
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:43.290
  • THEN WE SAY, "WELL, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:45.120
  • HOLD THAT AGAINST THEM.
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:46.270
  • THAT'S THE WAY THEY ARE.
  • 00:10:46.270 --> 00:10:48.020
  • SO WE HAVE
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:49.050
  • TO ACCOMMODATE THEM
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.080
  • AND ALLOW THEM
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.110
  • TO HAVE SOME CHILDREN."
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:52.140
  • DO WE SAY THAT?
  • 00:10:52.140 --> 00:10:53.170
  • YOU SAY, "SHUT UP!
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:54.200
  • YOU'RE INSANE."
  • 00:10:54.200 --> 00:10:55.230
  • WE'RE ACTUALLY BUYING INTO
  • 00:10:55.230 --> 00:10:56.260
  • WHAT AMOUNTS TO INSANITY WHEN
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.020
  • WE'RE LETTING CONFUSED PEOPLE
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:10:59.070
  • TAKE CHARGE OF THE DIRECTION
  • 00:10:59.070 --> 00:11:00.160
  • OF THE NATION.
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:01.210
  • BUT WHAT DO WE DO
  • 00:11:01.210 --> 00:11:02.290
  • WITH THOSE CONFUSED PEOPLE?
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.040
  • WE LOVE THEM.
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:05.090
  • WE CARE ABOUT THEM BECAUSE
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:06.170
  • WE TOO HAVE BEEN TRAPPED,
  • 00:11:06.170 --> 00:11:07.250
  • CONFUSED, HELD IN BONDAGE.
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.260
  • SO THAT'S WHAT WE DO,
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.030
  • WE REACH OUT.
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:12.050
  • BUT WE DON'T ACCOMMODATE
  • 00:11:12.050 --> 00:11:13.060
  • BY COMPROMISING
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:14.080
  • OR MOVING GOD'S STANDARD,
  • 00:11:14.080 --> 00:11:15.090
  • WHICH YOU JUST REFERRED TO,
  • 00:11:15.090 --> 00:11:16.130
  • HOW HE MADE US,
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:17.150
  • MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:11:17.150 --> 00:11:18.190
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:19.270
  • "THIS IS WHAT I'VE DONE."
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.010
  • YOU JUST REFERRED
  • 00:11:21.010 --> 00:11:22.050
  • TO ROMANS ONE.
  • 00:11:22.050 --> 00:11:23.090
  • YOU DID A BEAUTIFUL JOB
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:24.130
  • EXPOUNDING THAT AT GATEWAY.
  • 00:11:24.130 --> 00:11:25.190
  • WHEN YOU CHANGE GOD'S TRUTH,
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:28.000
  • SUBSTITUTE IT FOR A LIE,
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:30.000
  • WHEN YOU BEGIN TO WORSHIP
  • 00:11:30.000 --> 00:11:32.010
  • WHAT HE HAS CREATED
  • 00:11:32.010 --> 00:11:33.100
  • RATHER THAN THE CREATOR,
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:35.070
  • IN THAT BONDAGE
  • 00:11:35.070 --> 00:11:36.290
  • YOU'RE GIVEN OVER TO WHAT?
  • 00:11:36.290 --> 00:11:38.290
  • PAUL SAID YOU HAVE IDOLS,
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:41.090
  • YOU SHARE WITH DEMONS,
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:42.250
  • YOU FELLOWSHIP WITH DEMONS,
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:43.280
  • DECEPTION.
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:44.270
  • YOU'RE CONFUSED.
  • 00:11:44.270 --> 00:11:45.290
  • YOU'RE DECEIVED.
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.030
  • YOU'RE MISLED.
  • 00:11:47.030 --> 00:11:48.050
  • YOU CAN BE SO DECEIVED THAT
  • 00:11:48.050 --> 00:11:49.110
  • YOU THINK IT IS THE TRUTH
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:50.150
  • AND WHEN YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:11:50.150 --> 00:11:51.210
  • SO DECEIVED
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:52.240
  • YOU THINK IT IS TRUTH,
  • 00:11:52.240 --> 00:11:53.260
  • YOU REALLY ARE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:54.290
  • DECEIVING EVERYONE.
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:56.050
  • THIS IS THE WORLD
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:57.090
  • WE'RE LIVING IN.
  • 00:11:57.090 --> 00:11:58.090
  • WHAT DO WE DO?
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:11:59.090
  • WE LOVE PEOPLE BACK
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:00.150
  • TO WHO GOD SAYS WE ARE.
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:01.180
  • Lisa: AND WE SPEAK THE TRUTH.
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:02.240
  • James: WE SPEAK THE TRUTH
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:03.250
  • IN LOVE.
  • 00:12:03.250 --> 00:12:04.250
  • Lisa: BECAUSE
  • 00:12:04.250 --> 00:12:05.270
  • IF THERE IS NO TRUTH...
  • 00:12:05.270 --> 00:12:06.260
  • SEE, THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:08.020
  • I FOUND ALARMING.
  • 00:12:08.020 --> 00:12:09.090
  • WE HAVE TRUTH
  • 00:12:09.090 --> 00:12:12.000
  • AND YET CHRISTIANS
  • 00:12:12.000 --> 00:12:13.140
  • FROM SPEAKING TRUTH BECAUSE
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:16.220
  • THEY THROW DOWN THE TRUMP CARD
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:18.160
  • OF "YOU'RE JUDGING ME."
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.000
  • I'M SO THANKFUL SOMEBODY
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:25.070
  • SAT DOWN WITH ME AND SAID,
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.130
  • "BABY GIRL,
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:27.180
  • YOUR PROMISCUITY IS NOT
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.230
  • FINDING FREEDOM FOR YOU.
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:30.100
  • YOU WILL NEVER FIND
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:32.110
  • REFRESHING FROM
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.230
  • THIS UNFAITHFUL WELL.
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:35.120
  • YOU NEED TO DRAW
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:36.190
  • FROM THE TRUE WELL.
  • 00:12:36.190 --> 00:12:37.190
  • YOU HAVE LOST YOUR VIRGINITY
  • 00:12:37.190 --> 00:12:38.220
  • BUT YOU CAN RECOVER
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:39.270
  • YOUR VIRTUE."
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:41.020
  • SO WHEN WE SAY TO SOMEBODY
  • 00:12:41.020 --> 00:12:43.000
  • THAT THIS IS BUILDING YOUR
  • 00:12:43.000 --> 00:12:44.160
  • LIFE WITH UNTEMPERED MORTAR
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:46.180
  • AND IT IS GOING
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:48.000
  • TO COST YOU EVERYTHING,
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:49.080
  • WE ARE NOT BEING CRUEL.
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:50.090
  • WE'RE ACTUALLY
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:51.150
  • TRYING TO HELP THEM.
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:52.210
  • AND I MEAN, I'M JUST GOING
  • 00:12:52.210 --> 00:12:54.160
  • TO SAY THAT FORNICATION,
  • 00:12:54.160 --> 00:12:56.160
  • ADULTERY, HOMOSEXUALITY --
  • 00:12:56.160 --> 00:12:58.130
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:00.080
  • THOSE THINGS
  • 00:13:00.080 --> 00:13:01.140
  • WILL NEVER SATISFY YOU.
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:03.110
  • THEY WILL STRIP YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:05.110
  • WE HAVE BEEN TURNED OVER
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:06.250
  • TO BE MASTERED
  • 00:13:06.250 --> 00:13:08.030
  • BY THE LUSTS WITHIN US.
  • 00:13:08.030 --> 00:13:09.100
  • IT IS TIME
  • 00:13:09.100 --> 00:13:10.270
  • THAT WE CALL IT WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.130
  • IT ISN'T BEING KIND
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:14.010
  • TO TELL SOMEBODY
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:15.100
  • THAT SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:13:15.100 --> 00:13:16.210
  • CONTROLS THEM IS GOOD.
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:18.290
  • IT'S NOT.
  • 00:13:18.290 --> 00:13:20.110
  • WE'RE CALLING EVIL GOOD
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:21.140
  • AND GOOD EVIL.
  • 00:13:21.140 --> 00:13:23.110
  • SO WHO KNOWS
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:25.040
  • WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:13:25.040 --> 00:13:26.130
  • WHEN WE LOOK BACK AND SEE
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:27.200
  • THE SOCIOLOGICAL EXPERIMENT
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:28.230
  • WE'RE ACTUALLY DOING
  • 00:13:28.230 --> 00:13:29.260
  • IN OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:30.280
  • WHERE WE'RE ASKING PRETEENS
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:32.170
  • AND JUNIOR HIGHERS
  • 00:13:32.170 --> 00:13:34.100
  • TO SELF-IDENTIFY.
  • 00:13:34.100 --> 00:13:36.040
  • IF SOMEBODY
  • 00:13:36.040 --> 00:13:37.100
  • WOULD HAVE ASKED ME AT 13
  • 00:13:37.100 --> 00:13:38.140
  • TO SELF-IDENTIFY --
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:39.170
  • FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:40.200
  • I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY AT 13
  • 00:13:40.200 --> 00:13:41.190
  • THAT IS COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:42.230
  • I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SAID
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:43.280
  • I WAS AN UNICORN.
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:44.290
  • WHAT I WOULD HAVE SAID.
  • 00:13:46.090 --> 00:13:47.090
  • I WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:48.100
  • "I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM
  • 00:13:48.100 --> 00:13:49.140
  • BECAUSE I WAS IN TRANSITION
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:51.150
  • AND YOU DON'T ASK PEOPLE
  • 00:13:54.010 --> 00:13:55.150
  • IN TRANSITION
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:56.260
  • TO LOCATE THEMSELVES.
  • 00:13:56.260 --> 00:13:58.020
  • YOU LET THEM KNOW
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:13:59.050
  • THAT THEY ARE GROWING
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:00.070
  • INTO SOMETHING.
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.130
  • AND YET,
  • 00:14:01.130 --> 00:14:04.070
  • WE'RE PUTTING PRESSURE
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:05.230
  • ON CHILDREN.
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:06.260
  • SEE, WHEN CHILDREN
  • 00:14:06.260 --> 00:14:07.280
  • GO THROUGH PUBERTY,
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:09.030
  • THEY HAVE SEX FASCINATION,
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:11.090
  • GENDER FASCINATION.
  • 00:14:11.090 --> 00:14:12.180
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX.
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:13.260
  • THEY ARE CURIOUS.
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:15.010
  • THEY ARE SAYING,
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.160
  • "WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:17.200
  • IS WHAT IS GOING ON
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:18.230
  • WITH MY BODY GOING ON WITH
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:20.010
  • THE OTHER GIRLS' BODIES?"
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:21.060
  • AND WE'RE TURNING THIS
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.100
  • CURIOSITY AND FASCINATION
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:23.140
  • TO A SEXUAL ATTRACTION
  • 00:14:23.140 --> 00:14:25.000
  • WHEN REALLY IT'S JUST
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:26.110
  • THEM GOING THROUGH
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:27.170
  • THE PROCESS OF CURIOSITY.
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:28.270
  • WE'RE SEXUALIZING THINGS
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:30.000
  • THAT ARE JUST NORMAL;
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:32.150
  • THAT BOYS WOULD BE MORE
  • 00:14:32.150 --> 00:14:34.040
  • COMFORTABLE BEING AROUND BOYS
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:35.100
  • AND GIRLS WOULD BE
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:36.150
  • MORE COMFORTABLE
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:37.180
  • AND THEN WE'RE SAYING,
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:38.210
  • "OH, WELL, YOU HAVE
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:39.240
  • SAME SEX ATTRACTION."
  • 00:14:39.240 --> 00:14:40.270
  • NO, YOU'RE ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.000
  • PROBABLY JUST CURIOUS.
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:43.030
  • SO WE NEED TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:44.060
  • BE A PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:45.090
  • I TOTALLY BELIEVE,
  • 00:14:45.090 --> 00:14:46.120
  • JAMES AND BETTY,
  • 00:14:46.120 --> 00:14:47.150
  • AND I KNOW THIS IS YOUR HEART,
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:49.000
  • THAT IF AMERICA,
  • 00:14:49.000 --> 00:14:50.030
  • IF CHRISTIANS WILL
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:51.060
  • HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND SAY,
  • 00:14:51.060 --> 00:14:52.090
  • "I'VE BEEN JUDGMENTAL.
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:53.270
  • I'VE BEEN HARSH.
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:55.220
  • I'VE NOT BEEN ONE WHO HAS
  • 00:14:55.220 --> 00:14:57.110
  • REPRESENTED JESUS WELL.
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:14:59.070
  • I HAVEN'T SHOWN
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:00.170
  • A CHANGE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:15:00.170 --> 00:15:01.280
  • WHY SHOULD I JUDGE PEOPLE
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:03.220
  • OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:04.280
  • IF I HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:06.050
  • CHRIST-LIKE IN THE CHURCH?"
  • 00:15:06.050 --> 00:15:07.280
  • IF WE CAN SAY THAT,
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:09.150
  • THEN GOD'S GOING
  • 00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:10.270
  • TO HEAR FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:12.020
  • HE'S GOING TO HEAL OUR LAND.
  • 00:15:12.020 --> 00:15:13.120
  • WHEN WE HUMBLE OURSELVES,
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:14.170
  • PRAY, AND TURN FROM
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:15.220
  • OUR OWN WICKED WAYS.
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:16.230
  • A LIFE WITHOUT RIVAL
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:19.150
  • WAS ACTUALLY ASKING THE CHURCH
  • 00:15:19.150 --> 00:15:21.100
  • TO BE THE CHURCH
  • 00:15:21.100 --> 00:15:22.200
  • AND IDENTIFY WITH CHRIST
  • 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:24.030
  • James: LISA, WE'VE HEARD SUCH
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:27.160
  • A DOWNLOAD OF POTENTIALLY
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:29.230
  • TRANSFORMING TRUTH.
  • 00:15:29.230 --> 00:15:31.260
  • YOU NEED TO READ THE BOOK.
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:34.150
  • THERE IS SO MUCH HERE.
  • 00:15:34.150 --> 00:15:36.000
  • BUT LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.050
  • SEE, IF WE MAKE FUN,
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.100
  • LISA, OF THE PERSON
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:39.120
  • THAT'S GENDER CONFUSED
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:41.170
  • OR HAS HOMOSEXUAL
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:42.250
  • OR SAME SEX ATTRACTION,
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:44.170
  • IF WE MOCK THEM,
  • 00:15:44.170 --> 00:15:46.100
  • RIDICULE THEM,
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:47.180
  • CALL THEM NAMES,
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:49.000
  • WE'RE CONTRIBUTING
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.130
  • TO A SPIRIT OF CONDEMNATION,
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:52.170
  • WHICH GOD IS NOT
  • 00:15:52.170 --> 00:15:53.280
  • A PART OF THAT.
  • 00:15:53.280 --> 00:15:55.090
  • THAT IS SATANIC.
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:56.210
  • THAT IS DAMNING.
  • 00:15:56.210 --> 00:15:58.000
  • IT DESTROYS.
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:15:59.070
  • IT LITERALLY CURSES PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:59.070 --> 00:16:01.110
  • AND WHEN THE CHURCH
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:02.190
  • PLAYS THAT GAME,
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:03.230
  • I DON'T LIKE THEM
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:04.240
  • OR YOU'VE GOT A CHILD
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:05.270
  • THAT SEEMS TO BE ACTING
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:07.000
  • A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:16:07.000 --> 00:16:08.000
  • AND YOU MAKE THEM FEEL
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:09.040
  • DIFFERENT WRONG
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:10.040
  • AND YOU MAKE FUN OF THEM
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:11.030
  • OR YOU MOCK THEM,
  • 00:16:11.030 --> 00:16:12.060
  • THAT'S SO DAMAGING.
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:13.050
  • THAT MAKES THEM FEEL CONDEMNED
  • 00:16:13.050 --> 00:16:14.070
  • SO THEY NEVER FEEL
  • 00:16:14.070 --> 00:16:15.080
  • THE CONVICTION OF LOVE
  • 00:16:15.080 --> 00:16:16.100
  • THAT SAYS WE UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:17.110
  • THERE IS CONFUSION,
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:18.150
  • WE ALL GO THROUGH IT.
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:19.190
  • AND GOD WANTS TO LEAD US
  • 00:16:19.190 --> 00:16:20.230
  • OUT OF THAT.
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:21.280
  • BUT WE'VE GOT TO SHOW THEM
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:22.290
  • A GOD THAT CAN LEAD ANYBODY
  • 00:16:22.290 --> 00:16:24.010
  • WHERE THEY NEED TO GO
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:25.040
  • TO BLESS THEM AND BENEFIT THEM
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:26.100
  • AND NOT TO MAKE
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:27.110
  • THEIR LIFE WORSE.
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:28.150
  • WE ALL HAVE THE STRUGGLE
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:29.180
  • IN VARIOUS AREAS OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:30.210
  • WE DON'T NEED
  • 00:16:30.210 --> 00:16:31.220
  • TO FEEL CONDEMNED,
  • 00:16:31.220 --> 00:16:32.260
  • WE NEED TO FEEL LOVED.
  • 00:16:32.260 --> 00:16:33.280
  • LOVE OPENS THE DOOR
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.050
  • FOR CONVICTION
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:36.130
  • AND CONVICTION BRINGS ABOUT
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:37.160
  • THE DESIRE TO REPENT
  • 00:16:37.160 --> 00:16:39.120
  • AND TO BE SET FREE
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:40.210
  • FROM WHATEVER
  • 00:16:40.210 --> 00:16:41.280
  • IS HOLDING YOU CAPTIVE.
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.160
  • LISA, DO YOU RECOGNIZE

  • IN THESE FEW MOMENTS
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:48.110
  • THAT WE'VE HAD?

  • IS EVERY BIT AS IMPORTANT
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.100

  • THANK YOU

  • AND WORKING WITH THE
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.160
  • LIVING YOUR DESTINY SERIES
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:18.190
  • IN WHAT YOU'RE SHARING.
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:19.260
  • SHE IS GOING TO BE ON TO
  • 00:17:19.260 --> 00:17:20.280
  • TALK TO US IN ANOTHER PROGRAM
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:21.290
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK
  • 00:17:21.290 --> 00:17:23.010
  • ABOUT THE RIVALS IN LIFE
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:24.040
  • AND THE COMPETITION
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:25.070
  • THAT WE FEEL.
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:26.110
  • AND THEN THE RIVALS
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:27.170
  • AGAINST WHAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:28.180
  • AND REALLY DOWNLOAD ON THAT.

  • AND IT IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:17:30.040 --> 00:17:31.220
  • A BLESSING.
  • 00:17:31.220 --> 00:17:32.270
  • LISA,

  • THE MISSION FIELDS
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:36.080

  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:38.180
  • BUT YOU'VE SUPPORTED
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:39.190
  • OUR MISSION OUTREACHES.
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:40.190
  • HAS THAT BEEN A JOY
  • 00:17:40.190 --> 00:17:41.200
  • FOR YOU TO DO THAT?
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:42.230
  • Lisa: IT'S BEEN ONE OF

  • THE MOST LIFE-CHANGING THINGS
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:44.260
  • WE EVER DID.
  • 00:17:44.260 --> 00:17:46.000
  • I THINK OUR LIVES ENLARGED
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:47.050
  • WHEN WE STARTED SOWING
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.060
  • INTO LIFE OUTREACH.
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:49.070
  • I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.
  • 00:17:49.070 --> 00:17:50.090
  • I STILL REMEMBER

  • GATHERING MY BOYS
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:52.110
  • AND SEEING BETTY AND ANN

  • IN THE AFRICAN FIELDS
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:55.170
  • AND TELLING MY BOYS,
  • 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:56.200
  • "YOU GUYS NEED TO POTTY TRAIN
  • 00:17:56.200 --> 00:17:57.230
  • BECAUSE WE NEED
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:17:58.260
  • TO GIVE SOME MONEY."
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:17:59.290
  • AND IT WAS THAT LONG AGO.
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:01.040
  • IT WAS WHEN
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:02.070
  • I WAS NURSING ALEK.
  • 00:18:02.070 --> 00:18:03.100

  • FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:07.220
  • AND IT HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:09.130
  • HONOR AND A BLESSING.
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:10.250
  • James: I WANT TO THANK YOU.

  • TO HER.
  • 00:18:18.160 --> 00:18:19.170
  • WHAT A BLESSING SHE'S BEEN
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:20.190
  • BECAUSE SHE'S PUT ARMS OF LOVE
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:21.270
  • AROUND THE SUFFERING.
  • 00:18:21.270 --> 00:18:23.080
  • SHE'S GONE INTO THE DANGEROUS
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:24.140
  • PLACES WITH US TO TRY

  • TO RESCUE THE PERISHING.
  • 00:18:25.210 --> 00:18:26.260
  • I WANT YOU TO LOOK RIGHT NOW

  • AND I WANT YOU
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:29.230
  • TO SEE DESPERATION.

  • INTO A PLACE OF JOY.
  • 00:18:37.080 --> 00:18:38.100
  • NOW WE HAVE A CHANCE

  • OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:49.180
  • WE'VE ALREADY ORGANIZED THEM
