Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 15, 2012. Read Transcript



HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.


AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON, WELCOME TO THE SHOW.


WELL, BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG


CITY, YOU KNOW, IT ACTUALLY CAN


CAUSE A LOT OF THINGS TO SHOW A


LOT OF IMPERFECTIONS.


I THINK IT CAN.


BEING ON THE 700 CLUB, WE


ARE ON THE SPOTLIGHT, I DON'T


KNOW IF IT'S AFFECTED YOU,


PEOPLE SEE ME, I DON'T THINK


YOU SEE A LOT OF BROTHERS ON


TELEVISION, SO WHEN THEY SEE


ME, I CAN USUALLY SEE THAT


BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT'S


WHO -- IT'S -- BUT THE BIG --


LET'S REMEMBER THOUGH, I AM


FROM EWE GONE DA, EAST AFRICA.


YOU WERE BORN THERE BUT YOU


DON'T HAVE THE TAN.


I WAS BORN IN AFRICA, YOU


WERE NOT BORN IN AFRICA, I AM


MORE AFRICAN AMERICAN THAN MY


BROTHER HERE, AFRICAN CANADIAN.


GET YOUR PIGMENT RIGHT.


OKAY.


WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, TODAY WE


HAVE GOT A COUPLE OF STORIES


THAT DEAL WITH THE SUBJECT OF


LIGHT.


YEAH, THIS YEAR, THE


AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING


TO PHASE OUT ALL INCANDESCENT


LIGHT BULBS AND REPLACE THEM


WITH MORE EFFICIENT ONES.


IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE


FAILING, LIKE YOU AREN'T


LIVING THE LIFE THAT YOU WERE


MEANT TO LIVE, JOE KIZACK'S


STORY WILL SHOW GOD CAN TURN


ANY SITUATION AROUND, TODAY


YOU'LL SEE HOW JOE HAS MOVED ON


FROM PAST PROBLEMS AND DOING


WHATEVER HE CAN TO INSPIRE


OTHERS.


AND LAURA LYNN WILL SHINE


MORE LIGHT ON WHAT YOU BELIEVE,


CANADA, AS SHE CONTINUES HER


CONVERSATION ABOUT FAITH WITH A


COUPLE OF ATHEISTS.


BUT FIRST, SHINING A LIGHT


ON GREEN TECHNOLOGY AND SOME OF


THE CONTROVERSY THAT SURROUNDS


IT.


FOR MORE THAN 130 YEARS,


THOMAS EDISON'S INCANDESCENT


BULB THAT LIT UP BULBS AROUND


THE WORLD, NOW IT MIGHT BE A


THING OF THE PAST, IN 2007,


CONGRESS PASSED THE ENERGY


INDEPENDENCE AND SECURITY ACT,


REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE


(INAUDIBLE) ITS ENACTMENT BUT IF


THEY FAIL, THE LAW WILL GO INTO


EFFECT LATER THIS YEAR, IT


REQUIRES BASIC LIGHT BULBS TO


BE ABOUT 25% MORE EFFICIENT AND


REMOVE MORE TRADITIONAL


INCANDESCENT BULBS FROM THE MAR,


SARAH IS IN THE


TELECOMMUNICATIONS AND LIGHTS


INDUSTRY.


I THINK IT'S WISE BECAUSE


MAYBE 40, 50 YEARS AGO, IT


WOULDN'T HAVE WORKED BECAUSE


THERE WERE NO ALTERNATIVES.


THOSE ALTERNATIVES FALL INTO


TWO CATEGORIES, CFL'S KNOWN FOR


THEIR CURLY SHAPE AND LIGHT


EMITTING DIODES OF LED'S,


THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO SAVE ENERGY


AND LAST LONGER, HAROLD


BRANTSTONE IS NOT READY TO GIVE


UP ON A BULB THAT'S NOT BROKEN,


HE'S KNOWN FOR LIGHTING UP


STRUCTURES, HE STANDS BY


EDISON'S INVENTION.


HERE IS A STANDARD 100 WATT


INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULB, UNDER


CURRENT LAW, THIS BULB IS TO BE


PHASED OUT THIS YEAR AND THIS IS


A MOVE THAT BRANTSTONE


OPPOSES, HE CONSIDERS IT'S A


MORAL OBLIGATION TO SPEAK OUT


AND HE'S LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN.


LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT


HAVE LOST THEIR HOME, LOOK AT


ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT OF


WORK, LOOK AT ALL OF THAT AND


NOW WE'RE GOING TO IMPOSE A NEW


FINANCIAL BURDEN ON THEM.


ON HIS WEBSITE, SAVE THE


BULB, BRANTSTONE WRITES, I SEE


NO GOOD REASON TO RELEGATE


AMERICA'S GREATEST INVENTIONS


TO HISTORY OTHER THAN TO SUIT


THE PARTICULAR INTEREST OF


POLITICIANS.


I KNOW A COUPLE OF SENIOR


RESEARCHERS IN THE LIGHTING


INDUSTRY WHO HAVE STARTED TO


HOARD LIGHT BULBS AND ME


INCLUDE BECAUSE I MAY NOT WIN


THIS FIGHT.


HIS DEDICATION INCLUDES A


LIFETIME SUPPLY OF BULBS STORED


IN HIS BASEMENT.


WHY WON'T THIS DESIGNER EMBRACE


THE FUTURE, THE CFL ALTERNATIVE


CONTAINS MERCURY.


THEY BANNED MERCURY IN


THERMOMETER, NOW THEY'RE


SAYING, IT'S OKAY, IN LIGHT


BULBS, IT'S OKAY BUT IN


THERMOMETER, NO, THAT'S BECAUSE


IT'S BEEN PUSHED BY THE


MANUFACTURERS AND WHAT I CALL


THE GREEN MACHINE.


MILES WHOSE COMPANY


SPECIALIZES IN LED LIGHTS SAYS


THAT


I HAD ONE FALL ON MY CARPET


THE OTHER DAY WHERE I WAS


PHOTOGRAPHING THEM, EVEN ON


SOFT CARPET, IT SMASHED INTO


SMITHEREENS, THEY WOULDN'T


HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT.


THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION


AGENCY STATES THE USE OF CFL'S


HELPS REDUCE MERCURY EMISSIONS


IN THE U.S. BECAUSE OF THEIR


SIGNIFICANT ENERGY SAVINGS,


THEY PUT DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS


ON THEIR WEBSITE TO TELL YOU


WHAT TO DO IF A CFL BREAKS IN


YOUR HOME, THIS IS WHAT


HAPPENED TO A MAN WHEN HE


STEPPED ON A CFL AND HIS FOOT


BECAME INFECTED WITH MERCURY


POISING


YOU HAVE TO PICK UP


THE IMPORTANT PARTS, AND THEN


DOUBLE BAG THEM IN SEALED


PLASTIC BAGS, NOBODY'S GOING TO


DO THIS, YOU CAN'T VACUUM IT UP.


MILES SAYS LED LIGHTING IS


NOT DELICATE.


THESE ARE VIRTUALLY


UNBREAKABLE.


BE PREPARED TO PAY QUITE A


BIT MORE FOR THE LED'S AND


CFL'S, YOU CAN PAY A BUCK FOR A


THREE PACK OF TRADITIONAL BULBS


WHILE A THREE PACK OF CFL'S CAN


COST 10 TO 15 BUCK, LED'S COST


THE MOST.


YOU CAN BE ANYWHERE FROM 10


DOLLARS TO 35 DOLLARS A LAMP.


THE ATTRACTION OF ENERGY


SAVINGS AND LONG LIFE WILL WIN


OVER CONSUMERS.


THERE'S THE UNINTERRUPTED


SPECTRUM COMING FROM THE BULB.


THE EFFORT BY CONSERVATIVES AND


CONGRESS MAY BE ABLE TO STALL


LIGHT BULB SOCIALISM, MARK


MARTIN, NEW YORK.


WOW, LAURA LYNN, THAT WAS


VERY INFORMATIVE.


SOME OF THOSE LIGHT BULBS,


THEY DON'T WEAR OUT FOR THREE


YEARS.


I WONDER IF CANADA'S GOING


TO FOLLOW?


I DON'T KNOW BUT THEY'RE


KIND OF COOL.


UP NEXT, JOE HIS SACK'S LIFE


BECAME A NIGHTMARE.


THAT'S ALL I HAVE WANTED IS


ACCEPTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE FROM


MY DAD THAT WHAT I WAS DOING


WAS ENOUGH, IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH,


THAT I WAS GOOD ENOUGH, THAT I


DIDN'T HAVE TO PERFORM IN ORDER


TO BE LOVED.


FROM AN EARLY AGE, JOE


KIZACK FELT HE COULDN'T PLEASE


HIS FATHER, EVEN WHEN HE


LAUNCHED HIS CAREER AS AN


EXECUTIVE IN HOLLYWOOD.


I SAT WITH MY DAD AND I


STILL WOULDN'T HEAR, GREAT JOB,


IT'S ALMOST ON THE INSIDE, IT'S


LIKE, THIS IS AS GOOD AS I CAN


MAKE IT.


I CAN'T DO IT OR WORK ANY


HARDER AND IF I CAN'T GET YOU


TO SAY GOOD JOB, IT WAS


DEFLATING TO ME.


NO AMOUNT OF REWARDS MADE


JOE HAPPY.


I WAS MISERABLE IN THE


INSIDE THAT I HAD GOTTEN WHAT I


THOUGHT I WANTED BUT IT DIDN'T


SATISFY ME.


HIS DOCTOR PRESCRIBED


MEDICATION FOR DEPRESSION.


HE EVALUATED ME AND STARTED


ME ON DEPRESSION MEDICATION AND


THAT WAS THE BEGINNING, IT WAS


A COUPLE OF YEARS OF JUST, IF


YOU WILL, EXPERIMENTING WITH


THE LIGHT CHEMICALS THAT WERE


SUPPOSED TO HELP WITH PRODUCING


THE LIGHT BALANCE IN MY LIFE.


JOE BEGAN TAKING LARGER


DOSES THAN THE DOCTOR


PRESCRIBER AND EVEN TRAVELED TO


MEXICO TO BUY DRUGS WITHOUT A


PRESCRIPTION.


AS THE PRESSURES WOULD


MOUNT, THE MORE I WOULD TAKE,


JUST SO I COULD FEEL NORMAL


AGAIN, SO I COULD FEEL LIKE I


COULD DO MY JOB.


HIS WIFE KARMA KNEW


SOMETHING WAS WRONG.


THERE WAS GUILT AND SHAME


BUT I WAS SO SAD ABOUT WHAT I


HAD PUT CARMEN THROUGH.


JOE AND CARMEN GOT


TOGETHER EVERY YEAR TO


CELEBRATE THE WIVES' BIRTHDAYS,


ONE YEAR, JOE WAS SO HIGH ON


PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, HE WAS


INCOHERENT.


JOE?


JOE?


I WAS STUMBLING AND FALLING


DOWN HAVING TO HAVE TO BE KIND


OF HELD UP, OBLIVIOUS TO REALLY


HOW SEVERE AND HOW BAD THINGS


HAD GOTTEN.


THE DRUG ABUSE EVENTUALLY


COST HIM HIS JOB.


AT THE PEAK OF HIS CAREER, HE


WAS FIRED.


HOWARD CAME OVER TO HAVE A


SERIOUS CONVERSATION WITH JOE.


HE SIMPLY SAID TO ME, YOU


NEED TO GET HELP, YOU'VE GOT TO


GO SOME PLACE AND GET HELP, YOU


HAVE TO GO TO WHATEVER


PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL, YOU HAVE


TO GET HELP WITH THIS


DEPRESSION AND GET WHATEVER


THIS STUFF IS AND TAKE IT OUT,


GET IT OUT OF YOU AND I SIMPLY


SAID, I'LL DO THAT


THEN CARMEN FOUND JOE'S


STASH OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS


DEEP INSIDE, I WAS GLAD SHE


FOUND IT BECAUSE IT BROUGHT AN


END TO IT.


JOE AGREED TO CHECK HIMSELF


INTO A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.


I FELT LIKE I HAD FAILED,


FAILED AT LIFE, THE ULTIMATE


FAILURE, AT LIFE, I WAS NEVER


GOING TO BE THAT GUY THAT MY


DAD SAID HE COULD BE PROUD OF


BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO GO CHECK


INTO A PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL


WITH DEPRESSION AND I WAS THE


BIGGEST FAILURE OF MY LIFE.


THE DAY BEFORE HE WAS


ADMITTED, ANOTHER FRIEND PAID


JOE A VISIT.


HE WAS SAYING I'M SURE THERE


IS SOME GOOD THAT CAN COME OUT


OF THIS HOSPITAL THAT YOU'RE


GOING TO, BUT I CANNOT JUST SIT


BACK AND LET YOU THINK THAT


SOME METHOD OF SAVING YOURSELF


IS THE ANSWER.


HE SAID, THERE'S ONE SOLUTION


FOR WHAT IT IS THAT YOU NEED


AND HE SAID, IT'S A


RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST,


AND I SAID, OKAY, YOU KNOW, HOW


DO I HAVE THAT?


AND HE SAID, WE'RE GOING TO


PRAY, AND WE'RE GOING TO PRAY


THIS PRAYER WHERE YOU'RE GOING


TO ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR LORD


AND AS YOUR SAVIOR, AND WE DID


THAT.


THE MOST INCREDIBLE SENSE OF


PEACE AND JOY AND JUST THIS


CALMNESS JUST FELT LIKE IT WAS


FILLING MY BODY, THAT IT WAS


BEING POURED INTO ME LIKE COOL


WATER JUST BEING POURED INTO ME


AND IT FELT LIKE IT WENT DOWN


TO THE BOTTOMS OF MY FEET AND


STARTED TO FILL ME AND FILL ME


AND FILL ME UNTIL IT GOT TO THE


POINT WHERE IT FELT LIKE I WAS


OVERFLOWING WITH IT.


IT WAS FLOWING OUT OF ME AND


OUT OF MY PORES, THIS ABSOLUTE


PURE JOY.


JOE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED


THE PROGRAM IN THE HOSPITAL AND


WHEN HE GOT HOME, HIS


ENTHUSIASM FOR HIS NEWFOUND


FAITH WAS STRONGER, HE FINALLY


FOUND ACCEPTANCE THREW --


THROUGH CHRIST.


I COULD BE ANYWHERE FILLED


WITH JOY, I COULD BE SITTING IN


TRAFFIC FILLED WITH JOY.


HE WROTE A BOOK, THE FULL


FISHERMAN, HIS BOOK HELPED HIM


LAUNCH A NEW CAREER AS A


MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER.


FOR PEOPLE THAT SAY THIS


ISN'T POSSIBLE FOR THEM BECAUSE


OF THEIR PAST, BECAUSE OF THEIR


BAGGAGE, THAT THEIR LIFE IS TOO


MESSY, I KNOW WHAT THAT FEELS


LIKE, THAT WAS ME.


I'VE BEEN THERE.


WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST, I WOULD


BE LOST, I WOULD BE LIVING A


LIFE OF JUST ABSOLUTE STRUGGLE


TO FIND ANY PURPOSE, TO FIND


ANY MEANING.


I AM A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT


PURPOSE WITH JESUS CHRIST IN MY


LIFE.


I CAN SAY THE SAME THING AS


JOE, I AM A COMPLETELY


DIFFERENT PERSON WITH JESUS


CHRIST IN MY LIFE, FOR EVERY


ONE OF US HERE AT THE 700 CLUB


CANADA, YOUR JOURNEYS HAVE


BROUGHT TOWS THE KNOWLEDGE THAT


LIFE IS EMPTY WITHOUT JESUS,


FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE


STRUGGLING WITH DRUG ADDICTION,


TRYING TO STAY CLEAN ONE DAY AT


A TIME, IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR


YOU TO KNOW THAT BILL W., THE


MAN WHO ORIGINALLY WROTE THE


STEPS WROTE THEM WITH GOD AND NT


THE HIGHER POWER THAT IS NOW US,


THE THINGS THAT ARE TAUGHT IN


EACH MEETING IS POWERFUL, BILL


W. HAD COME TO THE END OF


HIMSELF AND HE CRIED OUT ONE


NIGHT, HE SAID I'LL DO ANYTHING


AT ALL, IF THERE BE A GOD, LET


HIM SHOW HIMSELF, GOD


MIRACULOUSLY SHOWED UP AS BILL


SAW A BRIGHT LIGHT AND AN


INCREDIBLE FEELING OF SERENITY


SETTLED OVER HIM, HE NEVER


DRANK AGAIN FOR THE REMAINDER


OF HIS LIFE, DARREN SILK WORD


SAID SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED TO


YOU, I DON'T UNDERSTAND, BUT


YOU HAD BETTER HANG ON TO


IT, SOMETIMES JESUS IS JUST A


LIFE RAFT, BILL W. NEVER WENT


BACK ON HIS BELIEVE THAT THE


ONLY WAY HE WAS ABLE TO STAY


SOBER WAS BY HAVING A SPIRITUAL


ENCOUNTER WITH GOD, JOE FOUND


THE TRUE POWER THAT BILL W.


ALSO FOUND IN KNOWING JESUS, IF


THIS IS SPEAKING TO YOUR HEART


TODAY, WOULD YOU DO US A FAVOR


AND ALLOW YOUR HEART TO BE OPEN


TO THE POWER OF GOD IN YOUR


LIFE.


HE IS THE WAY, HE IS THE TRUTH


AND HE IS THE LIFE AND HE IS


THE ANSWER TO ANY ADDICTION AND


ANY PROBLEM THAT YOU'RE FACING.


ABSOLUTELY, AND YOU KNOW,


LAURA LYNN, YOU ARE SO RIGHT


ABOUT THE GREAT BOOK AS WELL,


SAM CLANS SI SAID SOMETHING,


HEAVEN IS LIKE A NEW PAIR OF


GLASSES, I BELIEVE IT IS A NEW


PAIR OF GLASSES BECAUSE YOU


START SEEING THINGS COMPLETELY


DIFFERENT, YOU LIKE BILL W. AND


LIKE SO MANY, YOU SEE THE


FATHER THE WAY YOU SHOULD SEE


THE FATHER AND THAT'S THROUGH


THE LIGHT AND THE LENS OF HIS


SON.


IF YOU'RE SAYING, I NEED THAT


IN MY LIFE TODAY, I WANT TO


INVITE YOU, GOD CAME TO A MAN


CAME NICK VENUS IN THE BIBLE


AND HE SAID, UNLESS YOU ARE


BORN AGAIN, YOU WILL NOT SEE


THE KINGDOM OF GOD, UNLESS YOU


ARE BORN OF THE WATER, THE KING


OF GOD IS MORE ABOUT A


PERCEPTION BEFORE A


PROGRESSION, LET'S GO SOME


BUSINESS WITH GOD.


THE BIBLE SAYS YOU WILL CONFESS


WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT JESUS IS


[INAUDIBLE] USUAL BE SAVED.


SO, WHOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME


OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED, ARE


YOU READY TO CALL ON THE NAME


OF THE LORD?


LET'S GET THOSE NEW GLASSES,


OPEN UP THOSE HANDS, NOW CLOSE


THOSE HANDS, AFTER YOU OPEN


THEM UP, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE


A NEW LIFE, SAY THIS PRAYER,


JESUS, WOULD YOU SAVE ME, I


CONFESS MY SIN, YES, I AM


POWERLESS TO HELP MYSELF,


POWERLESS TO IMPROVE MY


CIRCUMSTANCES, AND I ASK YOU TO


SAVE ME, COME INTO MY LIFE AND


BE MY LORD AND SAVIOR IN JESUS


NAME, AMEN.


AMEN.


IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T


HANDLE YOUR LIFE BY YOURSELF


ANYMORE, GIVE US A CALL, WE


HAVE AN ANSWER THAT WE'RE READY


TO SHARE WITH YOU,


1-855-759-0700.


HEY, WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO


GO, WE'VE BEEN FOCUSING ON THE


SERIES CALM DOWN BECAUSE IF YOU


DON'T CALM DOWN, YOU'RE GOING


TO HAVE A BREAK DOWN, WE'RE


TALKING ABOUT PILOTING THROUGH


LIFE'S PROBLEMS.


WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO GO,


WE'VE BEEN FOCUSING ON THREE


SERIES OF CALM DOWN, TODAY


WE'RE FOCUSING ON PROBLEMS IN


LIFE, STUMBLING BLOCKS,


STEPPINGSTONES, THEY COME TO


PERFECT US, LISTEN TO WHAT


[INAUDIBLE] SAYS AND DO NOT


[INAUDIBLE] BUT KNOWING THAT


TRIBULATION IS WORKING PATIENCE


AND EXPERIENCE HOPE, PROBLEMS


WHEN THE APTITUDE BIBLICAL AS


CHARACTER BUILDERS, GOD IS FAR


MORE INTERESTED IN YOUR


CHARACTER THAN YOUR COMFORT,


YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO GOD AND


YOUR CHARACTER ARE THE ONLY TWO


THINGS THAT YOU ARE GOING TO


TAKE WITH YOU INTO ETERNITY,


APOSTLE PAUL EMPHASIZED THIS IN


ROMAN 28, AND WE KNOW ALL


THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE


GOOD OF THOSE THAT WORK WITH


GOD, SAY THIS WITH ME, YOU


KNOW, THE GRADUATE DEGREE OF


THE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP


COMES FROM ATTENDING THE


UNIVERSITY OF HARD KNOX, IT


ALSO PROJECTS US, MY


IMPRISONMENT HERE HAS HAD THE


OPPOSITE OF ITS INTENDED


EFFECT, THE MESSAGE HAS


PROSPERED, ALL THE SOLDIERS


HERE AND EVERYONE ELSE TO FIND


OUT THAT I AM IN JAIL BECAUSE


OF THIS MESSIAH OF CURIOSITY


AND NOW THEY'VE LEARNED ALL


ABOUT HIM, NOT ONLY THAT BUT


MOST OF THE FOLLOWERS HERE OF


JESUS HAS BECOME FAR MORE SURE


OF THEMSELVES, SPEAKING OUT


FEARLESSLY ABOUT GOD, ABOUT THE


MESSIAH, GOD'S CARS, THERE IS


A SAYING, FOR GOD TO MAKE


MANIFEST AND FACT THAT HE GIVES


A PSALM IN THE NIGHT, HE MUST


FIRST MAKE THE NIGHT.


OUCH.


IT'S NOT THE BURDENS OF LIFE,


IT'S HOW WE HANDLE THEM, ISAIAH


40: 31, THE WEIGHT UPON THE


LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR


STRENGTH, THEY SHALL WALK AND


NOT GROW FEET, GOD IS AT WORK


IN YOUR LIFE EVEN IF YOU DON'T


RECOGNIZE IT AND UNDERSTAND IT,


SOMEBODY HAS SAID THIS, A


WISE PERSON, FOR GOD HAS WALKED


EACH DAY AND NUMBERED EACH


SEQUENCE AND HEAVEN'S LONG AGES


OF BLISS SHALL PAY FOR ALL HIS


CHILDREN SUFFERED HERE, THOSE


WHO GO THROUGH FIRE, WATER


SHOULD REMEMBER IT'S GOD'S WAY


OF PROTECTING YOU FROM ALL


THOSE THINGS, TODAY LET IT


PERFECT YOU AND PROJECT YOU AND


THAT IS YOUR HOPE TO GO.


YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS GROWING


UP, I WENT TO THIS HIGH SCHOOL,


WE HAD A PRINCIPAL, HIS NAME


WAS BOB WAGER, HE WENT ON AND


ON ABOUT CHARACTER, BY GRADE


12, WE WERE TIRED OF HEARING


ABOUT CHARACTER, CHARACTER


THIS, CHARACTER THAT, IT'S


IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR


CHARACTER IS, INTEGRITY, I


DIDN'T GET IT AT THAT TIME, IT


WAS MANY YEARS LATER WHEN I


SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT, MR. WAGER,


HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS


TALKING ABOUT, LISTEN TO WHAT


FIRST CORINTHIANS THREE SAYS,


IT WILL BE SHOWN FOR WHAT IT


IS, IT WILL BE REVEALED WITH


FIRE AND THE FIRE WILL TEST AND


CRITICALLY APPRAISE THE


CHARACTER AND THE WORK OF EACH


PERSON.


IT'S IMPORTANT WHAT YOUR


CHARACTER IS.


UP NEXT, EVOLUTION VERSUS


CREATION, PART II.


IT'S NOT THAT EVOLUTION IS A


THEORY IN THE SENSE THAT MAY OR


MAY NOT BE TRUE, IT'S A THEORY


IN THE SENSE OF -- I DON'T KNOW


THE EXACT DEFINITION, BUT THE


WAY OF --


BUT IT'S A THEORY IN THAT IT


WAS DARWIN SORT OF TRYING TO


EXPLAIN THE WORLD WITHOUT A


GOD, AND ON HIS DEATH BED, YOU


PROBABLY KNOW THIS, HE SAID, IF


THE FOSSIL RECORD DOES NOT


SUPPORT THIS THEORY, THEN THIS


AIN'T IT, FIND


SOMETHING ELSE


ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.


THE FOSSIL RECORD DOES NOT


SUPPORT EVOLUTION.


THAT'S NOT TRUE.


I'M NOT AN EXPERT ON


EVOLUTION, I CAN'T TELL YOU,


BUT I'M POSITIVE IT'S TRUE THAT


WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS NOT TRUE,


THAT THE FOSSIL RECORD DOES NOT


--


HAVE YOU SEEN -- STUDIED


THAT



YES, I HAVE STUDIED BIOLOGY.


AND WHAT FOSSILS THEN


REFLECT THAT EVOLUTION IS TRUE?


THERE'S SO MANY LIKE EVEN THE


RECORD SHOWS THAT


INSTANTANEOUSLY, ANIMALS AND


INSECTS APPEARING.


OKAY, SO THERE ARE A LOT OF


MISSING EVIDENCE FOR SURE.


A LOT OF MISSING EVIDENCE.


YES, BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW


THE FOSSILS ARE FORMED, YOU


NEED A CERTAIN CONDITION, YOU


NEED A CERTAIN TEMPERATURE.


SO, YOU THINK THERE'S NONE


THERE EVEN THOUGH THERE'S A LOT


OF FOSSILS BUT THERE'S


NO EVIDENCE OF TRANSITIONAL --


ACTUALLY, TRANSITIONAL


FOSSILS


BUT NOT FROM ONE ANIMAL TO A


COMPLETELY DIFFERENT --


I GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, I


KNOW TWO PROFESSORS, THEY LIVE


ON THIS ISLAND, THEY'RE


STUDYING A ONE SPECIES OF BIRD


FOR 30 YEARS CONTINUOUSLY AND


THIS ONE SPECIES OF BIRD DUE TO


CLIMATE CHANGE ARE DIVIDED INTO


[INAUDIBLE].


BUT THEY DIDN'T BECOME A


GIRAFFE, THEY ARE STILL A BIRD,


RIGHT?


I'M JUST SAYING 30 YEARS,


YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE.


THERE'S SPECIATION, AND THOSE


TWO GROUPS OF BIRDS BECOME


TOTALLY DIFFERENT SPECIES, I'M


JUST TALKING ABOUT 30 YEARS.


WHAT ABOUT A MILLION YEARS?


WHAT ABOUT TEN MILLION YEARS?


YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?


YES.


SO, NO CHANCE THAT YOU'RE OPEN


TO JUST --


ARE YOU OPEN TO EVOLUTION?


I DON'T THINK THAT YOU CAN


BACK UP EVOLUTION


SCIENTIFICALLY, AND SO I'M NOT


OPEN TO EVOLUTION WHEN I


BELIEVE THERE'S A GOD.


SO, WE'RE OPEN TO EVOLUTION,


NOT OPEN TO GOD.


IF GOD WERE TO REVEAL


HIMSELF TO YOU, WOULD YOU


BELIEVE?


IF I HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH IT


AND IF I'M BACKED UP WITH IT, I


WILL BELIEVE.


WELL, I THANK YOU VERY MUCH


FOR YOUR AUTHENTIC AND REAL --


THIS WAS A TOUGH CONVERSATION,


WASN'T IT?


IT WAS A LITTLE TOUGH, AND YET


YOU JUST KEPT BEING HONEST WITH


ME AND I DO APPRECIATE THAT AND


I PRAY THAT IF THERE IS A GOD,


HE WOULD REVEAL HIMSELF?


IF THERE ISN'T A GOD, WHO CARES


ANYWAYS, RIGHT?


RIGHT.


WELL, THAT WAS FUN AND I AM


JUST GRATEFUL THAT THOSE --


THAT COUPLE ON THE BEACH,


THEY'VE BEEN DATING FOR A WHILE


AND THEY WERE WILLING TO SHARE


THEIR AFTERNOON WITH ME AND


SHARE THEIR POINTS OF VIEW,


IT'S REALLY TOUGH, YOU KNOW


WHAT, BRIAN, I WANT TO BELIEVE


THAT I WAS CREATED FOR A GREAT


PURPOSE.


I DO NOT WANT TO BELIEVE THAT I


JUST SORT OF EVOLVED, YOU KNOW,


FROM AN APE, I JUST DON'T WANT


TO BELIEVE THAT.


I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH HAIR, I


JUST WANT TO BELIEVE THAT I WAS


CREATED FOR SOMETHING


MEANINGFUL AND POWERFUL.


WELL, I THINK THE REALITY


IS, YOU KNOW, WE RISE AND FALL


ON WHAT WE BELIEVE, SO EVERYONE


HAS A RIGHT TO WHAT THEY


BELIEVE, GOD HAS GIVEN US A


RESPONSIBILITY AND THAT IS TO


LIFT UP THE LIGHT AND LIFT UP


CHRIST, I'M THE WAY TO THE


TRUTH AND THE LIGHT SO WE


BELIEVE THAT SINCERELY.
