  • - WELCOME TO GOSPEL TRUTH
  • 00:00:00.230 --> 00:00:03.230
  • WITH ANDREW WOMMACK,
  • 00:00:03.230 --> 00:00:05.020
  • A TEACHING MINISTRY THAT FOCUSES
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:06.250
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:08.090
  • > YOU NEED TO SEE YOURSELF
  • 00:00:10.120 --> 00:00:12.010
  • AS A STEWARD,
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:13.260
  • NOT AN OWNER OF THE MONEY
  • 00:00:13.260 --> 00:00:16.020
  • - ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:18.270
  • THAT IT ISN'T YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:20.130
  • IT'S HIS MONEY.
  • 00:00:20.130 --> 00:00:21.230
  • AND THEN HE JUST BLESSES US,
  • 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:23.100
  • AND OUR FINANCES IMPROVED.
  • 00:00:23.100 --> 00:00:25.020
  • GOD REALLY BLESSED OUR FINANCES,
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:26.280
  • YOU CAN TRUST GOD
  • 00:00:26.280 --> 00:00:27.210
  • WELCOME TO OUR THURSDAY'S
  • 00:00:31.190 --> 00:00:32.200
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:00:32.200 --> 00:00:35.000
  • TODAY I'M CONTINUING TO TEACH
  • 00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:36.150
  • ON A SUBJECT THAT I'VE ENTITLED:
  • 00:00:36.150 --> 00:00:38.010
  • FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:00:38.010 --> 00:00:39.210
  • I HAVE A BOOK ON THIS,
  • 00:00:39.210 --> 00:00:40.280
  • STUDY GUIDES.
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:42.090
  • WE HAVE A DVD
  • 00:00:42.090 --> 00:00:43.110
  • WITH SOME TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:44.280
  • THAT HAVE SEEN REAL MIRACULOUS
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:47.160
  • FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGHS
  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:49.070
  • IN THEIR LIFE,
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:50.110
  • AND THEN WE HAVE DVDs AND CDs.
  • 00:00:50.110 --> 00:00:52.100
  • THERE'S ACTUALLY SIX TEACHINGS
  • 00:00:52.100 --> 00:00:54.040
  • IN HERE,
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:55.120
  • AND TODAY I'M STARTING
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:56.250
  • ON THE THIRD TEACHING
  • 00:00:56.250 --> 00:00:59.030
  • IN THIS SERIES,
  • 00:00:59.030 --> 00:01:00.040
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:00.170
  • BE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:01:00.170 --> 00:01:01.140
  • THE UNJUST STEWARD
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:03.190
  • FROM LUKE, CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:06.010
  • NOW I'VE USED SOME
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:07.100
  • OF LUKE, CHAPTER 16
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:08.280
  • IN MY TEACHINGS
  • 00:01:08.280 --> 00:01:10.000
  • FOR THE LAST TWO WEEKS,
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:11.290
  • BUT I'VE NOT REALLY
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:12.260
  • GONE INTO THIS PARABLE
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.190
  • THAT JESUS GAVE
  • 00:01:14.190 --> 00:01:15.150
  • ABOUT THE UNJUST STEWARD,
  • 00:01:15.150 --> 00:01:16.190
  • AND THAT'S WHAT I WANT
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:17.080
  • TO FOCUS ON TODAY.
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.230
  • LET ME JUST, FIRST OF ALL, SAY
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:19.270
  • THAT THE FIRST THING
  • 00:01:19.270 --> 00:01:20.220
  • I TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:01:20.220 --> 00:01:22.050
  • IS THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:01:22.050 --> 00:01:23.050
  • A STEWARD MENTALITY,
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:25.060
  • NOT AN OWNER MENTALITY.
  • 00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:28.040
  • THERE'S A HUGE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:29.030
  • BETWEEN THOSE TWO.
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:31.110
  • YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE GOD
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:32.290
  • AS YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:34.150
  • YOU NEED TO BE TRUSTING HIM
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:35.270
  • AND NOT TRUSTING IN THE THINGS,
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:38.020
  • THE ASSETS,
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:39.000
  • THE JOB THAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:41.150
  • YOU NEED TO SEE GOD
  • 00:01:41.150 --> 00:01:42.130
  • AS YOUR SOURCE.
  • 00:01:42.130 --> 00:01:44.000
  • YOU NEED TO BE WILLING
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:44.290
  • TO JUST, LITERALLY, TO SAY,
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:46.110
  • GOD, THIS IS YOURS.
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:47.130
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT ME
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:48.090
  • TO DO WITH IT?
  • 00:01:48.090 --> 00:01:50.000
  • AND WE TALKED ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:51.000
  • THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT,
  • 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:52.020
  • AND THEN I TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:53.030
  • THAT THE FIRST STEP
  • 00:01:53.030 --> 00:01:55.040
  • IN PROSPERITY
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:56.060
  • IS THAT YOU'VE GOT TO START
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.280
  • TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.160
  • IN THIS AREA OF FINANCES,
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:01.020
  • AND SPECIFICALLY, YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:02.120
  • TO START GIVING.
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:03.280
  • IT'S ONE THING TO SAY
  • 00:02:03.280 --> 00:02:05.280
  • THAT YOU ARE TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:02:05.280 --> 00:02:07.260
  • BUT WORDS ARE CHEAP
  • 00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:09.130
  • UNLESS THERE'S SOME ACTION
  • 00:02:09.130 --> 00:02:10.180
  • TO GO WITH IT,
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:11.240
  • AND A PERSON WHO SAYS,
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:12.180
  • OH, I'M TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:02:12.180 --> 00:02:13.290
  • AND I WOULD DO ANYTHING,
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:15.040
  • I...I REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:02:15.040 --> 00:02:16.070
  • THAT THE LORD IS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:18.280
  • MY LORD, EVERYTHING PERFECT,
  • 00:02:18.280 --> 00:02:20.280
  • AND YOU CAN SAY
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:21.140
  • ALL OF THESE THINGS,
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:22.100
  • BUT THEN IF YOU DON'T GIVE,
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:25.070
  • THEN YOU DON'T TRULY TRUST GOD.
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:28.080
  • THOSE ARE STRONG STATEMENTS,
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:29.190
  • BUT I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:31.250
  • THAT JESUS DIDN'T DO.
  • 00:02:31.250 --> 00:02:32.290
  • I USED THOSE EXAMPLES
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:34.290
  • IN MARK, CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:36.090
  • WHERE A RICH YOUNG RULER
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:37.150
  • CAME TO JESUS,
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:38.100
  • AND OUTWARDLY,
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:39.050
  • HE LOOKED GOOD.
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:40.010
  • HE RAN AND FELL AT THE FEET
  • 00:02:40.010 --> 00:02:41.170
  • OF JESUS,
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:42.060
  • BUT JESUS KNEW HIS HEART
  • 00:02:42.060 --> 00:02:43.090
  • WASN'T RIGHT,
  • 00:02:43.090 --> 00:02:45.240
  • AND THE WAY HE EXPOSED
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:47.190
  • WHAT WAS IN HIS HEART
  • 00:02:47.190 --> 00:02:49.200
  • WAS BY HIS GIVING,
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:51.030
  • OR LACK THEREOF.
  • 00:02:51.030 --> 00:02:52.030
  • HE SAYS, IF YOU TRULY
  • 00:02:52.030 --> 00:02:53.100
  • ARE WANTING TO ACCEPT ME
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:55.160
  • AND MAKE ME
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.240
  • YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR,
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:57.280
  • THEN TAKE EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:02:59.240
  • AND GIVE IT TO THE POOR,
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:00.210
  • AND HE WENT AWAY SAD,
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:03.190
  • AND THE LORD TURNED
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:04.110
  • TO HIS DISCIPLES AND SAID,
  • 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:06.090
  • HOW HARD IS IT FOR THOSE
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:07.200
  • WHO TRUST IN RICHES TO ENTER
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:10.160
  • INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN?
  • 00:03:10.160 --> 00:03:13.080
  • MAN, THAT'S AN AMAZING
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:14.090
  • STATEMENT,
  • 00:03:14.090 --> 00:03:14.240
  • AND WE'VE GOT SO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.000
  • TODAY THAT ARE SAYING
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:18.100
  • THAT THEY'VE MADE JESUS
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:19.100
  • THEIR LORD,
  • 00:03:19.100 --> 00:03:19.280
  • BUT THERE'S NO EVIDENCE.
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.030
  • IF THEY WERE ARRESTED
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:22.020
  • FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:23.030
  • THERE WOULDN'T
  • 00:03:23.030 --> 00:03:23.170
  • BE ENOUGH EVIDENCE
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:24.130
  • TO CONVICT THEM,
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:26.020
  • AND I TELL YOU,
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:26.170
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:27.130
  • THAT SETS APART A PERSON
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:29.130
  • WHO HAS A TRUE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:03:29.130 --> 00:03:31.190
  • WITH GOD
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:32.250
  • VERSUS A PERSON WHO IS JUST
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:34.060
  • A CHRISTIAN IN NAME ONLY
  • 00:03:34.060 --> 00:03:36.290
  • IS THEIR FINANCES,
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:39.000
  • AND IF YOU AREN'T GIVING,
  • 00:03:39.000 --> 00:03:40.190
  • IF YOU AREN'T TITHING AND GIVING
  • 00:03:40.190 --> 00:03:42.160
  • EVEN ABOVE A TITHE,
  • 00:03:42.160 --> 00:03:44.120
  • AND IF YOU AREN'T EXCITED
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:45.190
  • ABOUT DOING IT,
  • 00:03:45.190 --> 00:03:46.150
  • AS IT SAYS IN 2 CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.200
  • CHAPTER 9, AND VERSE 7,
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:50.280
  • WHERE GOD LOVES
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:51.170
  • A CHEERFUL GIVER,
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:53.090
  • WELL, THEN YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.000
  • BLOWING SMOKE.
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:55.180
  • YOU'RE JUST SAYING THINGS,
  • 00:03:55.180 --> 00:03:56.280
  • BUT IT'S NOT REAL.
  • 00:03:56.280 --> 00:03:58.140
  • YOU CAN TELL ABOUT
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:03:59.060
  • WHERE A PERSON'S HEART IS
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:00.170
  • BY THEIR GIVING,
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:02.170
  • AND THOSE ARE SOME
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:03.040
  • STRONG STATEMENTS
  • 00:04:03.040 --> 00:04:04.010
  • AND I KNOW THAT THERE'S PEOPLE
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:04.280
  • THAT WILL BE OFFENDED BY THAT
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.050
  • AND DISAGREE WITH IT,
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:07.030
  • BUT I...THAT'S EXACTLY
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:09.060
  • WHAT ALL OF THIS TEACHING
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:10.140
  • THAT I'VE BEEN DOING.
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.040
  • I'VE BEEN USING WHAT JESUS DID
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:12.280
  • AND THE WAY HE DEALT WITH
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:13.260
  • THIS RICH YOUNG RULER
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:15.190
  • IN MARK, CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:16.240
  • AND I DARE YOU TO GO READ
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:19.010
  • MARK, CHAPTER 10, VERSES 17
  • 00:04:19.010 --> 00:04:21.050
  • ON DOWN THROUGH VERSE 30
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:23.030
  • AND COME TO A DIFFERENT
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:24.030
  • CONCLUSION
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:25.140
  • THAN WHAT I'VE JUST SAID.
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:26.280
  • I KNOW THAT THIS ISN'T POPULAR.
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:28.290
  • I KNOW THAT, TODAY,
  • 00:04:28.290 --> 00:04:30.010
  • WE JUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:32.070
  • TO REACH AS MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:33.150
  • AS POSSIBLE
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:34.260
  • AND WE GET THEM JUST TO PRAY
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.250
  • A QUICK PRAYER
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:37.190
  • AND WE DON'T WANT TO PUT
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:39.040
  • MANY RESTRICTIONS ON IT
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:40.090
  • AND SAY, BE REALLY COMMITTED
  • 00:04:40.090 --> 00:04:42.090
  • TO GOD,
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:42.260
  • BECAUSE THAT MIGHT
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:43.100
  • DRIVE SOMEBODY OFF.
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.120
  • WE'LL GET THEM LATER;
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.150
  • JUST...LET'S GET THEM
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:46.110
  • IN THE FAMILY,
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:47.230
  • AND THEN LATER, THEY'LL GROW
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.040
  • INTO THESE THINGS.
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:50.200
  • BUT JESUS SAID,
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:51.240
  • THAT THERE'S NO MAN THAT BEGINS
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:53.140
  • TO BUILD A CITY
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:54.290
  • THAT DOESN'T SIT DOWN FIRST
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:56.120
  • AND CONSIDER WHETHER
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:57.190
  • HE HAS SUFFICIENT RESOURCES
  • 00:04:57.190 --> 00:04:59.100
  • TO BE ABLE TO DO IT,
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:00.200
  • OR THERE'S NOBODY WHO GOES OUT
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:02.030
  • TO BATTLE,
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:02.200
  • NO KING THAT GOES TO BATTLE,
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.020
  • THAT DOESN'T SIT DOWN
  • 00:05:04.020 --> 00:05:05.160
  • AND DECIDE,
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.080
  • DO I HAVE ENOUGH RESOURCES
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:08.090
  • AND MEN AND POWER
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.130
  • TO BE ABLE TO WIN THIS.
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:10.270
  • AND HE SAID, LIKEWISE,
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:12.010
  • SO ALL OF YOU THAT DO NOT
  • 00:05:12.010 --> 00:05:13.180
  • FORSAKE EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:15.290
  • AND TO COME INTO THE KINGDOM,
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:17.010
  • YOU AREN'T WORTHY
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:17.270
  • TO BE MY SERVANT.
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:20.030
  • THE CHURCH ISN'T PREACHING
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:21.050
  • THOSE KIND OF THINGS TODAY,
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:22.090
  • BUT THAT'S WHAT JESUS TAUGHT,
  • 00:05:22.090 --> 00:05:24.040
  • AND THIS IS ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:26.220
  • THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:28.020
  • IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.020
  • NOW, THE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST,
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:30.200
  • PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:05:30.200 --> 00:05:31.130
  • A TRUE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:33.080
  • AND THEY'RE BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:34.000
  • THAT'S A DIFFERENT THING,
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.170
  • BUT JESUS TAUGHT
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.160
  • THAT THERE'S A LOT OF TARES
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:38.190
  • AMONG THE WHEAT,
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:39.290
  • AND IN THE LAST DAYS,
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:40.240
  • THERE WOULD BE MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:42.030
  • THAT SAYS, LORD, LORD,
  • 00:05:42.030 --> 00:05:43.210
  • BUT THEY DO NOT THE THINGS
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:44.260
  • THAT I SAY.
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.150
  • WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE TODAY
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:48.000
  • THAT CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:05:48.000 --> 00:05:50.180
  • BUT AS I SAID,
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:51.110
  • IF THEY WERE ARRESTED
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:52.100
  • FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.060
  • THERE WOULDN'T
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:53.200
  • BE ENOUGH EVIDENCE
  • 00:05:53.200 --> 00:05:54.140
  • TO CONVICT THEM.
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:55.220
  • I'VE SEEN BARNA SURVEYS
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:57.070
  • THAT SOMETHING LIKE
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:57.290
  • 60 SOMETHING PERCENT,
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:05:59.190
  • 68% OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.240
  • OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:04.030
  • CLAIMS TO BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:06.200
  • THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A PERSONAL
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.030
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:10.040
  • BUT NOT EVERYBODY
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:11.000
  • WHO CLAIMS THAT
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:12.000
  • HAS A TRUE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:13.180
  • AND SO, GEORGE BARNA HAS COME UP
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:16.040
  • WITH A SERIES OF QUESTIONS
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:17.260
  • THAT THEY ASK,
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:18.160
  • LIKE HOW OFTEN DO YOU STUDY
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:19.260
  • THE WORD?
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:20.140
  • HOW OFTEN TO DO YOU GO
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:21.070
  • TO CHURCH?
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:21.260
  • DO YOU TITHE?
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:23.070
  • DO YOU BELIEVE
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:24.170
  • THAT THERE IS A REAL GOD
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:26.080
  • AND A REAL DEVIL?
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:27.150
  • THAT HEAVEN AND HELL...
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:28.110
  • AND THEY ASK A NUMBER
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:29.080
  • OF QUESTIONS,
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:30.150
  • AND FROM THESE QUESTIONS,
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:31.280
  • THEY COME WITH PEOPLE
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:33.110
  • WHO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:35.030
  • WITH GOD,
  • 00:06:35.030 --> 00:06:35.200
  • NOT JUST CHRISTIAN IN NAME ONLY,
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:37.270
  • AND THE NUMBER DROPS WAY DOWN
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:39.140
  • FROM LIKE 68%,
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.280
  • DOWN TO 30 SOMETHING PERCENT.
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:43.170
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:44.020
  • THERE'S A LARGE SEGMENT
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:45.290
  • OF PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO HAVE
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:47.270
  • A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,
  • 00:06:47.270 --> 00:06:49.210
  • BUT IT'S NOT REAL,
  • 00:06:49.210 --> 00:06:51.050
  • AND AS JESUS SAID,
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:52.050
  • JESUS SAID, MANY ARE GOING TO
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.120
  • SAY, LORD, LORD,
  • 00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:55.050
  • DID WE DO...NOT DO THESE THINGS,
  • 00:06:55.050 --> 00:06:56.240
  • AND HE SAYS, DEPART FROM ME,
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:57.260
  • I NEVER KNEW YOU.
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.060
  • NOT THAT I KNEW YOU
  • 00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:00.040
  • AND YOU FELL AWAY FROM IT,
  • 00:07:00.040 --> 00:07:01.070
  • BUT I NEVER KNEW YOU.
  • 00:07:01.070 --> 00:07:02.240
  • THEY WERE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:03.210
  • IN NAME ONLY.
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:05.050
  • THERE'S PEOPLE WATCHING
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:05.290
  • THIS PROGRAM RIGHT NOW
  • 00:07:05.290 --> 00:07:06.280
  • THAT YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF
  • 00:07:06.280 --> 00:07:08.080
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:07:08.080 --> 00:07:09.180
  • I'VE ACTUALLY HAD
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:10.090
  • A PERSON BEFORE,
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:11.020
  • I ASKED THEM, I SAID,
  • 00:07:11.020 --> 00:07:11.230
  • ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:07:11.230 --> 00:07:13.030
  • AND I'VE HAD PEOPLE PULL COINS
  • 00:07:13.030 --> 00:07:14.190
  • OUT OF THEIR POCKET AND SAY,
  • 00:07:14.190 --> 00:07:15.210
  • WELL YES, RIGHT HERE, IT SAYS,
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:16.270
  • IN GOD WE TRUST,
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:19.030
  • AND THEY THINK THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.110
  • IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:07:20.110 --> 00:07:21.100
  • WE HAVE IN GOD WE TRUST
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:22.230
  • ON OUR COINS
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:23.250
  • AND ON OUR BILLS THAT
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:25.090
  • THAT MAKES YOU A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:27.200
  • YOU KNOW, THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:28.170
  • A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:07:28.170 --> 00:07:29.030
  • GOING TO CHURCH DOESN'T MAKE YOU
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:30.240
  • A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:31.260
  • SITTING IN A GARAGE
  • 00:07:31.260 --> 00:07:33.020
  • WOULD MAKE YOU A CAR.
  • 00:07:33.020 --> 00:07:35.040
  • YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE A CAR,
  • 00:07:35.040 --> 00:07:36.030
  • GET IN THE GARAGE
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:36.270
  • FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION.
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:38.050
  • IF YOU ARE CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:07:38.050 --> 00:07:39.000
  • GO TO CHURCH,
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:40.000
  • BUT GOING TO CHURCH
  • 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:41.000
  • DOESN'T MAKE YOU A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.250
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:43.190
  • A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:07:43.190 --> 00:07:45.050
  • AND I'M SAYING
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:45.200
  • THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:46.160
  • WATCHING THIS PROGRAM
  • 00:07:46.160 --> 00:07:48.150
  • THAT YOU HAVE DECEIVED YOURSELF
  • 00:07:48.150 --> 00:07:50.240
  • INTO THINKING
  • 00:07:50.240 --> 00:07:51.150
  • THAT YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:52.240
  • BECAUSE YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:07:52.240 --> 00:07:53.200
  • WERE A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:54.150
  • BUT YOU KNOW, GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:07:54.150 --> 00:07:55.130
  • HAVE ANY GRANDKIDS.
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:57.120
  • EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAS TO HAVE
  • 00:07:57.120 --> 00:07:59.080
  • A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:00.280
  • WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:08:00.280 --> 00:08:03.100
  • AND ONE OF THE WAYS
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:04.010
  • THAT YOU CAN TELL,
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:05.200
  • I...AM I REALLY TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:07.230
  • OR AM I A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:08:07.230 --> 00:08:08.250
  • IN NAME ONLY?
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.270
  • LOOK AT YOUR GIVING.
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:12.250
  • IF YOU AREN'T TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:15.070
  • IN THIS AREA,
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:16.000
  • JESUS SAID THAT
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:17.030
  • THAT'S THE LEAST AREA
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:19.120
  • OF USING YOUR FAITH,
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:20.160
  • AND IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:21.150
  • WHICH IS LEAST,
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:22.260
  • YOU CAN'T DO THAT
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:23.190
  • WHICH IS GREATER.
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.160
  • THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE,
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:26.260
  • AND I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:27.190
  • I BELIEVE THAT IT'S POSSIBLE
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:29.250
  • FOR A PERSON TO BE BORN AGAIN
  • 00:08:29.250 --> 00:08:31.250
  • AND YET, NOT TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.090
  • IN THIS AREA OF GIVING
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.080
  • AND THE ONLY REASON
  • 00:08:34.080 --> 00:08:35.010
  • IT'S POSSIBLE IS BECAUSE
  • 00:08:35.010 --> 00:08:36.040
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, ROMANS 10:17,
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:38.230
  • SO THEN FAITH COMES BY HEARING,
  • 00:08:38.230 --> 00:08:40.110
  • AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.110
  • AND SINCE WE HAVEN'T BEEN
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:43.150
  • PREACHING THE TRUTH
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:44.230
  • ABOUT FINANCES
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:46.030
  • FROM THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:48.280
  • THERE'S SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:50.110
  • WHO HAVE RECEIVED SALVATION,
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:51.270
  • BECAUSE THEY'VE HEARD THE TRUTH
  • 00:08:51.270 --> 00:08:53.010
  • ABOUT THAT
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:53.280
  • AND THEY HAVE RECEIVED IT
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:54.270
  • AND THEY ARE BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:55.250
  • BUT THEY DON'T HAVE FAITH
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:08:57.170
  • IN THIS AREA OF FINANCES,
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:08:59.200
  • BECAUSE IT HASN'T BEEN TAUGHT,
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:01.240
  • BUT THAT'S ABNORMAL.
  • 00:09:01.240 --> 00:09:03.150
  • THAT'S NOT THE WAY
  • 00:09:03.150 --> 00:09:04.040
  • THAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:05.200
  • IF A PERSON HAS HEARD
  • 00:09:05.200 --> 00:09:07.000
  • THE TEACHING ON FINANCES,
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:08.170
  • AND IF YOU KNOW WHAT THE WORD
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:10.070
  • SAYS ABOUT IT,
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.000
  • AND YET, YOU STILL AREN'T GIVING
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:13.180
  • THEN I WOULD QUESTION
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:14.260
  • WHETHER YOU ARE TRULY COMMITTED
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:16.270
  • TO THE LORD,
  • 00:09:16.270 --> 00:09:18.110
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN'T
  • 00:09:18.110 --> 00:09:19.140
  • BE JUST...YOU CAN'T JUST
  • 00:09:19.140 --> 00:09:20.260
  • CHERRY PICK SCRIPTURES
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:22.000
  • AND SAY, OH, I'M GOING TO TRUST
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:23.010
  • THIS PASSAGE OVER HERE
  • 00:09:23.010 --> 00:09:24.230
  • IN ROMANS 10:9
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:25.260
  • THAT IF I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.130
  • THE LORD JESUS,
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:28.100
  • AND BELIEVE IN MY HEART
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.070
  • GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:31.060
  • I SHALL BE SAVED,
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:32.060
  • I'M GOING TO BELIEVE THAT ONE,
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:33.080
  • BUT I DISBELIEVE THIS ONE,
  • 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:34.240
  • THAT IF I GIVE,
  • 00:09:34.240 --> 00:09:35.190
  • IT WILL BE GIVEN BACK UNTO ME.
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:37.270
  • I'M JUST GOING TO PICK
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:38.210
  • AND CHOOSE WHICH I WANT.
  • 00:09:38.210 --> 00:09:40.170
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE SALVATION.
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:43.050
  • MAN, THESE ARE SOME
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:43.240
  • STRONG STATEMENTS.
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:45.020
  • HERE IN THE 16TH CHAPTER OF LUKE
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:47.170
  • JESUS GAVE A PARABLE,
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:48.190
  • AND HE SAID UNTO HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.020
  • THERE WAS A CERTAIN RICH MAN,
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:52.270
  • WHICH HAD A STEWARD;
  • 00:09:52.270 --> 00:09:54.210
  • AND THE SAME WAS ACCUSED
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:56.050
  • UNTO HIM
  • 00:09:56.050 --> 00:09:56.280
  • THAT HE HAD WASTED HIS GOODS.
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:59.150
  • AND HE CALLED HIM,
  • 00:09:59.150 --> 00:10:00.080
  • AND SAID UNTO HIM, HOW IS IT
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.160
  • THAT I HEAR THIS OF THEE?
  • 00:10:01.160 --> 00:10:02.220
  • GIVE AN ACCOUNT
  • 00:10:02.220 --> 00:10:03.200
  • OF THY STEWARDSHIP;
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:04.270
  • FOR THOU MAYEST BE
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:05.260
  • NO LONGER STEWARD.
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:07.230
  • THEN THE STEWARD SAID
  • 00:10:07.230 --> 00:10:08.170
  • WITHIN HIMSELF,
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:10.080
  • WHAT SHALL I DO?
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.050
  • FOR MY LORD TAKETH AWAY FROM ME
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:13.030
  • THE STEWARDSHIP...
  • 00:10:13.030 --> 00:10:14.130
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S SAYING
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:15.170
  • RIGHT THERE?
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:15.290
  • THAT'S AN ADMISSION
  • 00:10:15.290 --> 00:10:16.290
  • THAT HE WAS GUILTY,
  • 00:10:16.290 --> 00:10:18.280
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:19.210
  • THAT WHEN THE MASTER
  • 00:10:19.210 --> 00:10:21.150
  • LOOKED AT THE BOOKS,
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:23.040
  • HE WAS GOING TO REALIZE
  • 00:10:23.040 --> 00:10:23.250
  • THAT HE HAD BEEN STEALING MONEY
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:25.010
  • FROM HIM,
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:25.280
  • AND SO, HE SAYS, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.040
  • LOSE MY STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:10:27.040 --> 00:10:28.160
  • SO, THIS WAS AN ADMISSION
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:29.170
  • OF GUILT,
  • 00:10:29.170 --> 00:10:30.180
  • AND THEN HE SAYS, I CANNOT DIG;
  • 00:10:30.180 --> 00:10:33.050
  • TO BEG I'M ASHAMED.
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:34.250
  • YOU KNOW, THIS ALWAYS AMAZES ME.
  • 00:10:34.250 --> 00:10:36.260
  • HE SAID HE WAS ASHAMED TO BEG,
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:39.060
  • BUT HE WASN'T ASHAMED TO STEAL.
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:42.070
  • IT'S AMAZING TO ME HOW PEOPLE
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:43.130
  • HAVE SELECTIVE MEMORIES
  • 00:10:43.130 --> 00:10:45.280
  • OR SELECTIVE CONSCIENCE
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:48.050
  • ABOUT WHAT'S RIGHT
  • 00:10:48.050 --> 00:10:48.290
  • AND WHAT'S WRONG.
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:50.090
  • HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED
  • 00:10:50.090 --> 00:10:51.100
  • TO BE AN UNFAITHFUL,
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:53.030
  • AN UNJUST STEWARD.
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:54.040
  • HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:55.020
  • TO STEAL MONEY FROM HIS MASTER,
  • 00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:57.150
  • BUT HE SAYS, I'M ASHAMED TO BEG.
  • 00:10:57.150 --> 00:11:00.040
  • IT'S AMAZING;
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:00.210
  • HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED
  • 00:11:00.210 --> 00:11:01.170
  • TO BE DISHONEST,
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:02.250
  • AND HE ALSO SAYS,
  • 00:11:02.250 --> 00:11:03.200
  • I CANNOT DIG...
  • 00:11:03.200 --> 00:11:05.050
  • I DOUBT VERY SERIOUSLY
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.230
  • THAT HE WAS PHYSICALLY IMPAIRED
  • 00:11:06.230 --> 00:11:08.140
  • AND COULDN'T PHYSICALLY
  • 00:11:08.140 --> 00:11:09.190
  • HAVE DONE IT.
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:10.060
  • WHAT HE WAS SAYING WAS,
  • 00:11:10.060 --> 00:11:11.020
  • I...THIS IS BENEATH ME;
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:13.070
  • I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS,
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:14.270
  • AND I MEET PEOPLE LIKE THIS
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:15.280
  • ALL THE TIME THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:17.100
  • THEY ARE WAITING
  • 00:11:17.100 --> 00:11:18.070
  • ON SOME EXECUTIVE POSITION,
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:19.280
  • AND MAYBE THEY ARE QUALIFIED,
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.090
  • MAYBE THEY'VE DONE THAT
  • 00:11:21.090 --> 00:11:22.060
  • IN THE PAST,
  • 00:11:22.060 --> 00:11:23.110
  • BUT NONETHELESS,
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:24.020
  • THEY'RE OUT OF A JOB
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:25.010
  • AND RATHER THAN TAKE SOMETHING
  • 00:11:25.010 --> 00:11:26.070
  • THAT WILL PAY THE BILLS
  • 00:11:26.070 --> 00:11:27.280
  • AND HELP THEM IN THE INTERIM,
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:29.240
  • DOESN'T MEAN YOU DON'T
  • 00:11:29.240 --> 00:11:30.160
  • KEEP BELIEVING
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:31.210
  • FOR SOME BETTER JOB,
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:34.090
  • BUT WHILE YOU'RE IN PROCESS,
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:36.200
  • THERE'S PEOPLE THAT JUST
  • 00:11:36.200 --> 00:11:37.140
  • WON'T WORK AT WALMART,
  • 00:11:37.140 --> 00:11:39.010
  • THEY WON'T TAKE A MENIAL JOB
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:41.000
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,
  • 00:11:41.000 --> 00:11:42.000
  • AND BECAUSE OF IT,
  • 00:11:42.000 --> 00:11:42.250
  • THEY PUT THEMSELF IN A BIND
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:44.260
  • AND GET INTO ALL OF THIS DEBT
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.150
  • AND ALL KINDS OF THINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:11:46.150 --> 00:11:48.180
  • I TELL YOU, YOU NEED TO WORK.
  • 00:11:48.180 --> 00:11:50.180
  • IF YOU DON'T WORK,
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:51.100
  • YOU DON'T EAT IS WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:11:51.100 --> 00:11:53.110
  • IN 2 THESSALONIANS, CHAPTER 3
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:55.250
  • AND THEN THIS SERVANT
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:57.050
  • WENT ON TO SAY,
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:59.020
  • HE SAID, I'M RESOLVED
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:00.080
  • WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:01.170
  • THAT, WHEN I AM PUT OUT
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.220
  • OF THE STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:12:02.220 --> 00:12:04.050
  • THEY MAY RECEIVE ME
  • 00:12:04.050 --> 00:12:05.070
  • INTO THEIR HOUSES.
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:06.230
  • SO, HE CALLED EVERY ONE
  • 00:12:06.230 --> 00:12:08.020
  • OF HIS LORD'S DEBTORS UNTO HIM,
  • 00:12:08.020 --> 00:12:09.280
  • AND SAID UNTO THE FIRST,
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:11.100
  • HOW MUCH OWEST THOU
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:12.140
  • UNTO MY LORD?
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:13.250
  • AND HE SAID AN HUNDRED MEASURES
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:15.050
  • OF OIL.
  • 00:12:15.050 --> 00:12:15.250
  • AND HE SAID UNTO HIM,
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:17.250
  • TAKE THY BILL,
  • 00:12:17.250 --> 00:12:18.170
  • AND SIT DOWN QUICKLY,
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:20.100
  • AND WRITE FIFTY.
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:21.250
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:22.250
  • HE DISCOUNTED THE DEBT
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:24.250
  • THAT THIS MAN OWED TO HIS MASTER
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:27.090
  • BY 50%.
  • 00:12:27.090 --> 00:12:28.290
  • IN THE NEXT ONE, IT SAYS,
  • 00:12:28.290 --> 00:12:29.270
  • THEN SAID HE TO ANOTHER,
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:31.000
  • AND HOW MUCH OWEST THOU?
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:32.060
  • AND HE SAID A HUNDRED MEASURES
  • 00:12:32.060 --> 00:12:33.180
  • OF WHEAT.
  • 00:12:33.180 --> 00:12:34.160
  • AND HE SAID UNTO HIM,
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:35.100
  • TAKE THY BILL,
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:36.020
  • AND WRITE FOURSCORE.
  • 00:12:36.020 --> 00:12:37.200
  • HE DISCOUNTED HIS BILL 20%,
  • 00:12:37.200 --> 00:12:40.190
  • AND IT SAID HE CALLED EVERY ONE
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:42.000
  • OF HIS LORD'S DEBTORS.
  • 00:12:42.000 --> 00:12:43.240
  • FOR THIS MAN
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:46.000
  • TO HAVE A STEWARD
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.060
  • OVER HIS FINANCES,
  • 00:12:47.060 --> 00:12:48.120
  • HE PROBABLY HAD MORE THAN
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:49.170
  • TWO PEOPLE THAT OWED HIM MONEY.
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:51.130
  • I BELIEVE THESE ARE JUST
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:52.120
  • TWO EXAMPLES
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:53.230
  • OF HOW HE DISCOUNTED
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:54.250
  • PEOPLE'S BILLS,
  • 00:12:54.250 --> 00:12:55.200
  • BUT HE PROBABLY CALLED IN,
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:56.250
  • MAYBE, 50 OR HOWEVER MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:13:00.050
  • YOU KNOW, HIS MASTER
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:01.160
  • HAD OWE HIM MONEY,
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:02.170
  • AND WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:03.100
  • HE DISCOUNTED THEIR BILLS,
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:06.110
  • AND, BASICALLY, JUST WROTE OFF
  • 00:13:06.110 --> 00:13:08.130
  • SOME OF THE DEBT.
  • 00:13:08.130 --> 00:13:09.190
  • YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:10.080
  • WHAT A HUNDRED MEASURES OF OIL
  • 00:13:10.080 --> 00:13:11.220
  • WAS WORTH,
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:12.050
  • A HUNDRED MEASURES OF WHEAT,
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:13.160
  • BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:13:13.160 --> 00:13:14.270
  • THE EQUIVALENT OF THOUSANDS
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:16.130
  • OR TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:18.080
  • THAT HE JUST DISCOUNTED.
  • 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:19.110
  • HE SAYS, IF YOU WILL SIGN
  • 00:13:19.110 --> 00:13:20.150
  • THIS NEW CONTRACT,
  • 00:13:20.150 --> 00:13:22.010
  • I'LL REDUCE WHAT YOU OWE
  • 00:13:22.010 --> 00:13:23.150
  • BY 50%, BY 20%, OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:26.220
  • AND SO, THIS MAN WAS STILL
  • 00:13:26.220 --> 00:13:29.020
  • STEALING MONEY
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.060
  • FROM HIS MASTER,
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:31.140
  • BUT INSTEAD OF PUTTING
  • 00:13:31.140 --> 00:13:32.120
  • THAT MONEY IN HIS POCKET,
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:34.260
  • HE WAS PUTTING IT
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:35.240
  • IN THE POCKETS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:13:35.240 --> 00:13:37.080
  • THAT OWED HIS MASTER MONEY,
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:39.100
  • AND HERE'S THE LOGIC BEHIND IT.
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:41.230
  • IN VERSE 4,
  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:42.280
  • I'M RESOLVED WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:13:42.280 --> 00:13:44.060
  • THAT, WHEN I AM PUT OUT
  • 00:13:44.060 --> 00:13:45.020
  • OF THE STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:46.110
  • THEY MAY RECEIVE ME
  • 00:13:46.110 --> 00:13:47.120
  • INTO THEIR HOUSES.
  • 00:13:47.120 --> 00:13:48.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:49.150
  • HE BASICALLY WAS BUYING FAVOR
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:52.190
  • FROM THESE PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:53.120
  • HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BE FIRED
  • 00:13:53.120 --> 00:13:54.230
  • BECAUSE HE WAS GUILTY,
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:56.130
  • SO WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:57.060
  • HE TOOK THE MONEY
  • 00:13:57.060 --> 00:13:58.170
  • THAT HE WAS OVER,
  • 00:13:58.170 --> 00:13:59.220
  • HIS MASTER'S MONEY,
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:00.240
  • AND BASICALLY,
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:01.140
  • STARTED GIVING IT AWAY
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:02.230
  • TO THESE PEOPLE,
  • 00:14:02.230 --> 00:14:03.160
  • GIVING THEM THE EQUIVALENT
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:04.200
  • OF THOUSANDS,
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:05.140
  • TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS'
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:07.060
  • WORTH OF DISCOUNTS,
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:08.120
  • SO THAT WHEN HE WAS FIRED,
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:09.220
  • HE COULD COME KNOCK
  • 00:14:09.220 --> 00:14:10.190
  • ON THEIR DOOR AND SAY,
  • 00:14:10.190 --> 00:14:12.120
  • I WAS FIRED AND I'M IN TROUBLE,
  • 00:14:12.120 --> 00:14:14.060
  • I NEED HELP, COULD YOU HELP ME?
  • 00:14:14.060 --> 00:14:16.060
  • DO YOU REMEMBER
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:16.260
  • THAT I DISCOUNTED
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:17.250
  • YOUR BILL $10.000,
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:20.040
  • AND THESE PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:20.290
  • FEEL OBLIGATED TO EITHER
  • 00:14:20.290 --> 00:14:23.030
  • FEED HIM OR PUT HIM UP
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:24.170
  • IN THEIR HOUSE OR WHATEVER,
  • 00:14:24.170 --> 00:14:25.290
  • AND IN A SENSE,
  • 00:14:25.290 --> 00:14:27.030
  • HE WAS STEALING MONEY
  • 00:14:27.030 --> 00:14:28.070
  • FROM HIS MASTER
  • 00:14:28.070 --> 00:14:29.120
  • BRIBING THESE PEOPLE,
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:31.120
  • SO THAT WHEN HE WAS FIRED,
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:33.020
  • THEY WOULD GIVE HIM
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.230
  • SHELTER AND FOOD.
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:36.290
  • NOW, UP UNTIL THIS POINT,
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.280
  • THIS IS NOT THAT UNUSUAL.
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:41.240
  • I MEAN, PEOPLE HAVE
  • 00:14:41.240 --> 00:14:42.130
  • MISUSED MONEY.
  • 00:14:42.130 --> 00:14:43.220
  • THEY HAVE BRIBED OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:46.000
  • WITH MONEY,
  • 00:14:46.000 --> 00:14:47.010
  • AND THEY'VE DONE IT
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:47.230
  • TO MANIPULATE AND TO CONTROL
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:49.110
  • AND TO DO THINGS,
  • 00:14:49.110 --> 00:14:50.040
  • SO, IT'S NOT THAT UNUSUAL
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:52.100
  • UP UNTIL THIS POINT.
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:54.020
  • BUT HERE IS WHERE I GOT STUCK
  • 00:14:54.020 --> 00:14:56.090
  • FOR MANY, MANY YEARS
  • 00:14:56.090 --> 00:14:57.050
  • ON THIS PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:14:57.050 --> 00:14:59.000
  • BECAUSE IT SAYS IN VERSE 8,
  • 00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:01.070
  • AND THE LORD,
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:02.040
  • THIS IS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:02.240
  • HIS MASTER,
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:03.210
  • THE MASTER OF THIS
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:04.130
  • UNJUST STEWARD,
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.270
  • THE LORD COMMENDED
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:07.130
  • THE UNJUST STEWARD,
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:08.150
  • BECAUSE HE HAD DONE WISELY
  • 00:15:08.150 --> 00:15:10.150
  • BECAUSE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:11.080
  • OF THIS WORLD
  • 00:15:11.080 --> 00:15:12.100
  • ARE IN THEIR GENERATION WISER
  • 00:15:12.100 --> 00:15:14.270
  • THAN THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT.
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:16.280
  • NOW IN THE NEXT VERSE,
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:17.250
  • VERSE 9, JESUS MAKES
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:19.040
  • THE APPLICATION OF THIS PARABLE
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:20.220
  • AND WHAT WE'RE SUPPOSED TO LEARN
  • 00:15:20.220 --> 00:15:21.230
  • THROUGH IT.
  • 00:15:21.230 --> 00:15:22.130
  • BUT LET ME JUST COMMENT
  • 00:15:22.130 --> 00:15:23.120
  • ON SOME THINGS RIGHT HERE,
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:24.200
  • FIRST OF ALL.
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:25.230
  • THE VERY FACT THAT THIS MAN,
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:27.110
  • WHEN HE WAS APPROACHED
  • 00:15:27.110 --> 00:15:28.140
  • BY HIS MASTER, AND SAID,
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:29.250
  • PUT YOUR BOOKS IN ORDER,
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:31.130
  • I'M GOING TO CHECK THIS OUT,
  • 00:15:31.130 --> 00:15:32.140
  • AND IF WHAT I'VE HEARD ABOUT YOU
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:33.180
  • IS TRUE,
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:34.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE FIRED,
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:36.020
  • AND THE FACT THAT THIS MAN
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:37.220
  • DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:39.210
  • THAT WAS SAVED UP,
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:40.290
  • SO THAT WHEN HE WAS FIRED,
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:42.110
  • HE WOULD BE ABLE TO LIVE
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:43.210
  • OFF OF THIS MONEY
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:44.140
  • THAT HE HAD BEEN STEALING,
  • 00:15:44.140 --> 00:15:46.010
  • BEEN MISAPPROPRIATING,
  • 00:15:46.010 --> 00:15:48.240
  • IT SHOWS YOU THAT THIS MAN
  • 00:15:48.240 --> 00:15:50.260
  • HAD NOT THOUGHT
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:51.230
  • ABOUT THE FUTURE.
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:53.190
  • WHATEVER MONEY HE HAD STOLEN,
  • 00:15:53.190 --> 00:15:55.100
  • HOWEVER, HE HAD MISMANAGED
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:56.230
  • THIS MONEY,
  • 00:15:56.230 --> 00:15:57.240
  • HE HADN'T USED IT WISELY.
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:16:00.120
  • HE HAD BEEN BLOWING IT
  • 00:16:00.120 --> 00:16:01.140
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS.
  • 00:16:01.140 --> 00:16:02.160
  • HE HAD PROBABLY BEEN OUT,
  • 00:16:02.160 --> 00:16:03.130
  • YOU KNOW, BUYING FANCY FOOD,
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:05.040
  • FANCY CLOTHES, DVDs,
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:08.040
  • FLAT SCREEN TVs, WHATEVER,
  • 00:16:08.040 --> 00:16:10.060
  • HE WAS JUST BLOWING IT
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:11.290
  • ON THESE PHYSICAL THINGS
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:13.220
  • THAT MAYBE MADE HIM FEEL GOOD,
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:15.010
  • BUT HE HADN'T SAVED
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:15.290
  • FOR THE FUTURE,
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:17.180
  • AND YOU CAN SEE THAT,
  • 00:16:17.180 --> 00:16:18.090
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS,
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.050
  • WHEN I AM PUT OUT
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:19.290
  • OF THE STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:20.240
  • WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:21.150
  • I CAN'T DIG;
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:23.040
  • TO BEG I'M ASHAMED.
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:24.080
  • THIS...THIS IS AN ADMISSION
  • 00:16:24.080 --> 00:16:25.160
  • THAT HE HAD NOTHING SAVED UP.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:28.070
  • THAT'S AN IMPORTANT PART
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.290
  • OF THIS STORY,
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:30.220
  • AND THE REASON THAT THE MASTER
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:33.110
  • WOUND UP COMMENDING HIM,
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:34.260
  • IT WASN'T THAT HE WAS APPROVING
  • 00:16:34.260 --> 00:16:36.150
  • OF HIM STEALING MONEY,
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:38.170
  • THAT'S NOT THE LESSON HERE,
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:40.040
  • THE LESSON IS THAT THIS MAN,
  • 00:16:40.040 --> 00:16:41.250
  • WHEN HE WAS COMING FACE TO FACE
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.140
  • WITH THE FACT THAT HE WAS
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:44.100
  • GOING TO LOSE HIS JOB,
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:45.260
  • HE FINALLY REALIZED,
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:47.090
  • THAT, I'M MANAGING THIS MONEY,
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:49.130
  • I'VE GOT...I'VE GOT POWER HERE
  • 00:16:49.130 --> 00:16:51.150
  • TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE,
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:53.000
  • AND HE HAD JUST BEEN USING MONEY
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:55.050
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.260
  • THAT DIDN'T AFFECT HIS FUTURE.
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:59.010
  • WHEN HE WAS FACED WITH THE FACT
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:17:00.250
  • THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE FIRED,
  • 00:17:00.250 --> 00:17:02.220
  • HE STARTED USING HIS INFLUENCE
  • 00:17:02.220 --> 00:17:05.160
  • THAT HE HAD
  • 00:17:05.160 --> 00:17:06.240
  • AS THE STEWARD OF HIS MASTER
  • 00:17:06.240 --> 00:17:09.020
  • TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:10.270
  • FOR HIS FUTURE,
  • 00:17:10.270 --> 00:17:11.210
  • AND THIS IS THE REASON
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:13.170
  • THAT THE MASTER COMMENDED HIM
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:15.270
  • IS BECAUSE, FINALLY,
  • 00:17:15.270 --> 00:17:17.040
  • YOU'VE REALIZED THAT YOU COULD
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:19.110
  • USE MONEY IN A WAY TO INFLUENCE
  • 00:17:19.110 --> 00:17:22.020
  • YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.200
  • UN...INSTEAD OF JUST BLOWING IT
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:25.060
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS,
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:26.050
  • YOU'RE THINKING LONG TERM,
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.110
  • AND I TELL YOU, IF YOU ARE GOING
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:29.240
  • TO PROSPER IN GOD'S SYSTEM,
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:32.090
  • THIS IS AN ATTITUDE
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:33.070
  • THAT YOU NEED TO DEVELOP.
  • 00:17:33.070 --> 00:17:35.040
  • YOU NEED TO QUIT
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:36.040
  • THINKING SHORT TERM,
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:38.190
  • AND THIS IS A MAJOR DEAL
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.280
  • RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:42.050
  • OUR SOCIETY TODAY
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:44.080
  • HAS GONE SO MUCH INTO DEBT.
  • 00:17:44.170 --> 00:17:47.170
  • YOU WILL HEAR COMMERCIALS
  • 00:17:47.170 --> 00:17:48.260
  • AND PEOPLE CONSTANTLY
  • 00:17:48.260 --> 00:17:50.050
  • ARE SAYING,
  • 00:17:50.050 --> 00:17:50.230
  • WHY DO YOU HAVE TO WAIT,
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:51.280
  • YOU KNOW, FOR THIS?
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.060
  • WE WILL GIVE THIS TO YOU
  • 00:17:53.060 --> 00:17:54.150
  • WITH NO INTEREST
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:55.100
  • FOR THE FIRST THREE MONTHS
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:56.160
  • OR NO INTEREST
  • 00:17:56.160 --> 00:17:57.090
  • FOR THE FIRST YEAR
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:18:00.060
  • AND YOU CAN GO AHEAD
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:01.000
  • AND GET THINGS NOW
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:02.030
  • THAT YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY FOR,
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:03.110
  • BUT GET IT NOW
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:04.120
  • AND THEN PAY LATER,
  • 00:18:04.120 --> 00:18:06.180
  • AND THEY'RE JUST THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:07.240
  • TEMPORARY THINGS.
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:09.000
  • DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU
  • 00:18:09.000 --> 00:18:09.190
  • GO BUY A CAR
  • 00:18:09.190 --> 00:18:11.080
  • AND YOU BUY IT ON CREDIT,
  • 00:18:11.080 --> 00:18:12.130
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WIND UP
  • 00:18:12.130 --> 00:18:13.090
  • PAYING FOR THAT CAR MANY TIMES
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:16.000
  • WHAT IT'S WORTH.
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:17.060
  • WHEN YOU BUY A HOUSE;
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.000
  • I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:18.290
  • I EVER BOUGHT A HOUSE ON CREDIT
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:21.100
  • AND WHEN I SIGNED THE PAPERS,
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:24.130
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:24.130 --> 00:18:24.210
  • THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:25.220
  • MAKES YOU DISCLOSE
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:27.020
  • WHAT THE FINAL PAYOUT WILL BE
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:28.270
  • IF YOU JUST GO FOR 30 YEARS
  • 00:18:28.270 --> 00:18:31.000
  • AND MAKE THESE MINIMUM PAYMENTS,
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:34.100
  • AND I WAS SHOCKED
  • 00:18:34.100 --> 00:18:35.240
  • THAT I WOULD HAVE PAID
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:37.100
  • TWO AND A HALF TIMES
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.130
  • WHAT THE ACTUAL PRICE
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:40.200
  • OF THAT HOUSE WAS.
  • 00:18:40.200 --> 00:18:41.250
  • THAT'S WHAT DEBT DOES TO YOU,
  • 00:18:41.250 --> 00:18:43.110
  • BUT PEOPLE WILL SIT THERE,
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.010
  • MORTGAGE THEIR FUTURE,
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:47.030
  • FOR THE TEMPORARY BENEFIT
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:49.050
  • THAT THEY HAVE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:50.260
  • SEE, THAT'S SHORT-TERM THINKING,
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:52.070
  • AND IN A SENSE,
  • 00:18:52.070 --> 00:18:52.280
  • THAT'S WHAT THIS UNJUST STEWARD
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:55.260
  • WAS DOING.
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:56.110
  • HE WAS STEALING MONEY
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:57.090
  • FROM HIS MASTER,
  • 00:18:57.090 --> 00:18:58.030
  • BUT HE WASN'T INVESTING IT,
  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:18:59.120
  • HE DI...WASN'T SAVING IT,
  • 00:18:59.120 --> 00:19:00.240
  • HE HADN'T HIDDEN IT SOMEPLACE.
  • 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:02.190
  • HE WAS BLOWING IT
  • 00:19:02.190 --> 00:19:03.170
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:05.050
  • AND HE HAD NOTHING
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:06.060
  • TO SHOW FOR IT,
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:07.120
  • AND THE REASON THE MASTER
  • 00:19:07.120 --> 00:19:08.150
  • COMMENDED HIM IS BECAUSE,
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.190

  • LIKE MONEY,
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:06.200
  • THAT'S GOING TO PASS AWAY;
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:07.250

  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.150
  • WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT.
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:15.030
  • SOMEDAY MONEY,

  • THAT IS TEMPORARY NOW
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:22.230
  • AND YOU CAN TURN IT
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:23.120
  • INTO SOMETHING ETERNAL
  • 00:20:23.120 --> 00:20:25.220
  • THAT WILL AFFECT YOUR FUTURE

  • IF YOU UNDERSTAND THAT,
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:32.250

  • IN MORE DETAIL,
  • 00:20:34.050 --> 00:20:35.210
  • BUT IF YOU UNDERSTAND THAT,
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:38.010
  • YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:38.160
  • YOU WOULD SIT THERE AND THINK,
  • 00:20:38.160 --> 00:20:40.050
  • GOD, HOW LITTLE DO I HAVE
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:43.150
  • TO KEEP TO BE A GOOD STEWARD
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:45.280
  • AND TO MEET MY NEEDS
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:47.060
  • AND THE NEEDS OF MY FAMILY
  • 00:20:47.060 --> 00:20:48.270
  • AND TO DO WHAT I NEED TO DO,
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:49.290
  • AND HOW MUCH CAN I POSSIBLY
  • 00:20:49.290 --> 00:20:52.150
  • INVEST IN MY FUTURE?
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:55.290
  • MAN, THAT'S WHAT THE LORD
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:57.140
  • COMMENDED THIS
  • 00:20:57.140 --> 00:20:58.060
  • UNJUST STEWARD FOR.
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:00.200
  • HE FINALLY LEARNED THAT,
  • 00:21:00.200 --> 00:21:02.010
  • I BETTER USE THE POWER
  • 00:21:02.010 --> 00:21:03.230
  • OF THIS POSITION,
  • 00:21:03.230 --> 00:21:05.120
  • THIS MONEY,
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:06.130
  • TO START AFFECTING MY FUTURE,
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:08.030
  • AND THAT'S THE REASON
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:08.240
  • THAT HE WAS COMMENDED.
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:10.140
  • YOU KNOW, I HAVEN'T GOT TIME
  • 00:21:10.140 --> 00:21:11.090
  • TO GO INTO THE FULL DETAIL
  • 00:21:11.090 --> 00:21:12.160
  • ON THIS,
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:13.000
  • BUT LET ME ALSO JUST POINT OUT
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:15.070
  • THAT IT WAS AMAZING
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:17.010
  • THAT THIS MASTER RESPONDED
  • 00:21:17.010 --> 00:21:19.060
  • THE WAY THAT HE DID,
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:21.000
  • BECAUSE JUST THINK ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:21:21.000 --> 00:21:22.010
  • LET'S SAY THAT YOU WERE TO WALK
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.200
  • INTO YOUR HOUSE
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:24.160
  • AND FIND SOMEBODY ROBBING
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:25.180
  • YOUR HOUSE
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:26.080
  • AND THEY HAD ONE
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:26.260
  • OF YOUR PILLOW CASES
  • 00:21:26.260 --> 00:21:27.260
  • AND THEY WERE PUTTING JEWELRY
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:29.020
  • AND ELECTRONICS AND ANYTHING
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:30.200
  • THAT THEY COULD GET
  • 00:21:30.200 --> 00:21:31.170
  • IN THAT PILLOWCASE,
  • 00:21:31.170 --> 00:21:32.180
  • AND IF THEY WERE STEALING
  • 00:21:32.180 --> 00:21:33.290
  • FROM YOU,
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:35.180
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD FIND
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:36.260
  • SOME WAY TO COMPLIMENT
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:38.020
  • THAT THIEF?
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:39.230
  • AMEN.
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:40.290
  • I DOUBT THAT THERE'S ANYBODY.
  • 00:21:40.290 --> 00:21:43.060
  • MAN, YOU WOULD IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:21:43.060 --> 00:21:44.050
  • THINK, LOOK WHAT I'M LOSING,
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:46.010
  • AND YOU WOULD SEE YOUR LOSS
  • 00:21:46.010 --> 00:21:48.050
  • AND YOU WOULDN'T BE GIVING OUT
  • 00:21:48.050 --> 00:21:50.030
  • COMPLIMENTS.
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:50.260
  • BUT THIS MASTER,
  • 00:21:50.260 --> 00:21:52.160
  • HIS SERVANT WAS STILL
  • 00:21:52.160 --> 00:21:53.150
  • STEALING MONEY FROM HIM,
  • 00:21:53.150 --> 00:21:55.050
  • AND YET, THIS MAN
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:21:56.010
  • WAS DETACHED ENOUGH
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:57.090
  • FROM HIS MONEY THAT HE COULD
  • 00:21:57.090 --> 00:21:59.280
  • ACTUALLY ISSUE A COMPLIMENT
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:02.090
  • TO THE GUY WHO HE KNEW
  • 00:22:02.090 --> 00:22:04.040
  • HAD STOLEN MONEY FROM HIM.
  • 00:22:04.040 --> 00:22:06.290
  • NOW THAT SAYS A LOT
  • 00:22:06.290 --> 00:22:08.080
  • ABOUT THE MASTER.
  • 00:22:08.080 --> 00:22:09.180
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT SAYS?
  • 00:22:09.180 --> 00:22:10.100
  • THAT MEANS THAT HE DIDN'T SEE
  • 00:22:10.100 --> 00:22:12.240
  • HIS PHYSICAL MONEY,
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:14.180
  • THAT THIS MAN WAS MISUSING
  • 00:22:14.180 --> 00:22:16.250
  • AND MISAPPLYING,
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:19.100
  • HE DIDN'T SEE HIS MONEY,
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:20.240
  • HIS RESOURCES AS HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:24.040
  • HE SAW GOD AS HIS SOURCE.
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:26.120
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S SIMILAR
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:27.010
  • TO THAT OLD NURSERY RHYME
  • 00:22:27.010 --> 00:22:29.090
  • ABOUT JACK AND THE BEANSTALK
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:30.230
  • AND HE GOES UP TO THE CLOUDS
  • 00:22:30.230 --> 00:22:32.290
  • AND THERE'S THIS GIANT
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:34.050
  • AND HE HAS A GOOSE
  • 00:22:34.050 --> 00:22:35.250
  • THAT LAYS GOLDEN EGGS.
  • 00:22:35.250 --> 00:22:37.210
  • DID YOU KNOW IF YOU
  • 00:22:37.210 --> 00:22:40.000
  • HAVE THE GOOSE
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:41.000
  • THAT LAYS THE GOLDEN EGG,
  • 00:22:41.000 --> 00:22:42.040
  • IT DOESN'T BOTHER YOU SO MUCH
  • 00:22:42.040 --> 00:22:43.150
  • IF SOMEBODY TAKES ONE
  • 00:22:43.150 --> 00:22:44.160
  • OF THE EGGS,
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:45.100
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT THE GOOSE,
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:46.120
  • YOU'VE GOT WHERE THAT CAME FROM,
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:48.100
  • THERE'S MORE TO COME,
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:49.280
  • AND IT'S KIND OF THAT WAY.
  • 00:22:49.280 --> 00:22:52.010
  • IF YOU ARE MAKING GOD
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:54.070
  • YOUR SOURCE,
  • 00:22:54.070 --> 00:22:55.020
  • THEN IF SOMETHING WAS TO HAPPEN
  • 00:22:55.020 --> 00:22:57.110
  • AND IF IT WAS TO DIMINISH
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:22:58.280
  • YOUR ASSETS AT THE MOMENT,
  • 00:22:58.280 --> 00:23:01.220
  • IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER,
  • 00:23:01.220 --> 00:23:02.290
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT GOD.
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:04.200
  • SEE, THI...THIS REACTION
  • 00:23:04.200 --> 00:23:06.020
  • SHOWS THAT THIS MAN SAW HIMSELF
  • 00:23:06.020 --> 00:23:08.290
  • AS A STEWARD.
  • 00:23:08.290 --> 00:23:09.250
  • HE SAW GOD AS HIS SOURCE,
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:11.290
  • AND EVEN THOUGH SOMEBODY
  • 00:23:11.290 --> 00:23:12.250
  • WAS STEALING FROM HIM,
  • 00:23:12.250 --> 00:23:13.270
  • HE DIDN'T FEEL LOSS,
  • 00:23:13.270 --> 00:23:15.070
  • HE DIDN'T FEEL PAIN.
  • 00:23:15.070 --> 00:23:16.180
  • NOW HE WAS GOING TO FIRE THE GUY
  • 00:23:16.180 --> 00:23:17.250
  • BECAUSE THAT'S NOT A GOOD...
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:19.100
  • THAT'S NOT BEING A GOOD MASTER,
  • 00:23:19.100 --> 00:23:21.150
  • THAT'S NOT BEING A GOOD BOSS
  • 00:23:21.150 --> 00:23:23.150
  • IF YOU ALLOW PEOPLE TO STEAL
  • 00:23:23.150 --> 00:23:25.030
  • FROM YOU,
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:25.200
  • SO HE WAS...THERE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:26.290
  • BE CONSEQUENCES,
  • 00:23:26.290 --> 00:23:28.080
  • BUT HE WASN'T SO AFFECTED
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:30.060

  • WITH THE FACT
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:35.010
  • HE WAS LOSING MONEY.
  • 00:23:35.010 --> 00:23:36.000
  • HE WAS ABLE TO ISSUE
  • 00:23:36.000 --> 00:23:37.000
  • A COMPLIMENT TO THE VERY GUY
  • 00:23:37.000 --> 00:23:38.150
