  • - Well I'm unique just like everybody else.
  • 00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:02.130
  • - Just like everybody else.
  • 00:00:02.140 --> 00:00:03.290
  • I don't want any trouble, can't we just be friends?
  • 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:05.110
  • Whoa, ah! (group laughs)
  • 00:00:05.120 --> 00:00:07.180
  • - Best way to end somebody's plan, punch 'em in the face.
  • 00:00:07.190 --> 00:00:10.280
  • - Ah! (electricity buzzes)
  • 00:00:10.290 --> 00:00:11.260
  • - And it's, and it's, oh.
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:13.070
  • - I never thought this day would come.
  • 00:00:13.080 --> 00:00:14.210
  • (Kirk grunts)
  • 00:00:14.220 --> 00:00:15.290
  • - [Instructor] There we go.
  • 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:16.250
  • - [Ray] Kirk. - Ah!
  • 00:00:16.260 --> 00:00:17.190
  • (dummy clanks)
  • 00:00:17.200 --> 00:00:18.270
  • - Okay buddy, give me all your money.
  • 00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:20.060
  • (Ray chuckles)
  • 00:00:21.080 --> 00:00:22.110
  • You forgot what to do.
  • 00:00:22.120 --> 00:00:23.150
  • I'm Kirk Cameron, and I get to meet
  • 00:00:26.030 --> 00:00:28.050
  • some pretty amazing people.
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:30.020
  • These are people who totally inspire me,
  • 00:00:30.030 --> 00:00:32.110
  • with their hearts full of faith, character and courage.
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:36.210
  • They put their limits, they think outside the box,
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:39.050
  • and bravely use their gifts and talents to bless others.
  • 00:00:39.060 --> 00:00:43.180
  • And today, we get to spend some time One on One.
  • 00:00:43.190 --> 00:00:46.160
  • (calming music)
  • 00:00:46.170 --> 00:00:49.060
  • (metal dings)
  • 00:00:51.230 --> 00:00:52.220
  • (calming music)
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:55.030
  • Put some bacon in there.
  • 00:00:55.040 --> 00:00:56.020
  • (pan sizzling)
  • 00:00:56.030 --> 00:00:57.210
  • For some people, the scariest thing in the world for them
  • 00:00:57.220 --> 00:01:01.050
  • is a fear known as glossophobia.
  • 00:01:01.060 --> 00:01:03.080
  • So that's the fear of public speaking,
  • 00:01:03.090 --> 00:01:06.020
  • and some people rank that higher than death
  • 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:08.240
  • on the list of things that they're most afraid of,
  • 00:01:08.250 --> 00:01:11.280
  • and even scarier, is speaking in public
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:14.260
  • about controversial subjects like faith in God,
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:18.020
  • and what happens after ya die?
  • 00:01:18.030 --> 00:01:20.230
  • Now, normally that would be stuff that I would avoid,
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:23.060
  • until I met a funny man with an awesome accent,
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:28.070
  • who completely changed the game for me.
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:30.280
  • - See God has made provision for you and I to be forgiven.
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:34.220
  • As through the suffering death of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:37.080
  • if you have lied, then you're a liar.
  • 00:01:37.090 --> 00:01:39.000
  • If you've stolen something, you're a thief.
  • 00:01:39.010 --> 00:01:41.130
  • - If God forgives everything you do, why is there hell?
  • 00:01:41.140 --> 00:01:44.180
  • - It looks like this guy is pretty upset.
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:46.110
  • - Believe it or not, we are being shutdown once again.
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:49.220
  • - Ray Comfort and I hosted a TV show called The Way
  • 00:01:49.230 --> 00:01:52.040
  • of the Master for five years, and so we spent most
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:54.170
  • of our time talking to complete strangers in the mall,
  • 00:01:54.180 --> 00:01:57.240
  • at the beach, in psychic shops, rock concerts,
  • 00:01:57.250 --> 00:02:00.130
  • about God, faith, prayer, the afterlife, heaven and hell.
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:04.260
  • It was amazing.
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.180
  • Ray is an author, he's got three kids, he's married,
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:10.010
  • and most people don't know he's actually
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.200
  • a proud backyard chicken farmer.
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:13.170
  • He's recently made some incredible films,
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:15.260
  • and he's a huge fan of breakfast.
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:17.140
  • So, I invited him to come over to my house,
  • 00:02:17.150 --> 00:02:19.260
  • so that we could catch up over some pancakes and eggs.
  • 00:02:19.270 --> 00:02:22.260
  • (pan sizzling)
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:24.180
  • - [Ray] Kirk!
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:25.130
  • - Hey, Ray!
  • 00:02:25.140 --> 00:02:26.260
  • C'mon back.
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:27.260
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:30.150
  • - Hey.
  • 00:02:31.210 --> 00:02:32.150
  • - How ya doin'?
  • 00:02:32.160 --> 00:02:33.220
  • - How ya doin' buddy?
  • 00:02:33.230 --> 00:02:34.280
  • - [Ray] Good, ya still got your chickens?
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:35.270
  • - No.
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:36.270
  • - What happened?
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:37.220
  • - The coyotes got 'em.
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:38.200
  • - They did?
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:39.180
  • - Well, it was a raccoon.
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:40.180
  • - Oh really?
  • 00:02:40.190 --> 00:02:41.220
  • One raccoon did the lot?
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:43.000
  • - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:02:43.010 --> 00:02:44.070
  • - Have I told you how I make them lay?
  • 00:02:44.080 --> 00:02:45.200
  • - How you make the chickens lay, no.
  • 00:02:45.210 --> 00:02:46.290
  • - Yeah, every day I lean in and say,
  • 00:02:47.000 --> 00:02:48.150
  • what's for dinner tonight ladies, eggs or chicken?
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:51.040
  • And they pump 'em out daily (chuckles).
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:53.030
  • - That's their motivation.
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:55.000
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:56.070
  • - [Kirk] How do you like your eggs?
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:57.160
  • - Well it's gonna be over, isn't it?
  • 00:02:57.170 --> 00:02:58.150
  • Yeah, that'd good.
  • 00:02:58.160 --> 00:02:59.130
  • - [Kirk] That's good.
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:00.090
  • - Yeah, I like 'em.
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.230
  • - Like that, think we're almost ready to,
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:03.160
  • we can sit down here.
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:04.230
  • Can you hand me that plate over there?
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:06.080
  • - Aren't you glad you don't believe in reincarnation?
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:08.250
  • Imagine coming back as a pig. - Why's that?
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:11.160
  • (Kirk chuckles)
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:13.010
  • I like to ask people that believe in reincarnation
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:15.130
  • who's in charge of giving out the bodies?
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:17.100
  • - Who's in charge of giving out the bodies?
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:18.180
  • - Yeah, 'cause everyone gets a body, a cockroach
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:20.110
  • or a prince, whatever, who's in charge of this?
  • 00:03:20.120 --> 00:03:21.250
  • And it brings it back to God, and then we go through
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:24.180
  • the commandments and find you're gonna come back
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.290
  • as a cockroach, not a prince as they think.
  • 00:03:27.000 --> 00:03:28.280
  • They're not as good as they thought.
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:30.080
  • Are we gonna say grace?
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:31.030
  • - Yes, please.
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:32.100
  • - Okay, Father thank you for your kindness,
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:34.070
  • thank you for the cross,
  • 00:03:34.080 --> 00:03:35.130
  • for everlasting life as a free gift.
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:36.260
  • We're eternally grateful and thank you
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:38.230
  • for this good and for good friendship.
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:40.130
  • In Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:42.090
  • - Amen.
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:43.160
  • I watched your movie last night, The Fool.
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:44.210
  • - Oh, yes.
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:45.160
  • Did you enjoy it?
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:46.150
  • - I loved it.
  • 00:03:46.160 --> 00:03:47.100
  • - You're in it.
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:48.120
  • - Yeah, I know, I know. (Ray laughs)
  • 00:03:48.130 --> 00:03:50.080
  • - And I spoke well of you, did you notice that?
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:52.080
  • - Thank you.
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:53.060
  • - [Ray] Yes, it was easy.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:54.220
  • - You know what, honestly I can't, you want a coffee?
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.060
  • - [Ray] No I don't drink coffee, it stunts your growth.
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:57.230
  • - Okay.
  • 00:03:57.240 --> 00:03:58.200
  • Is that what happened?
  • 00:03:58.210 --> 00:03:59.280
  • - [Ray] Yeah (chuckles), I was weened on coffee.
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:02.180
  • - No, I mean only you could take something
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:05.220
  • that others would've been just buried with humiliation
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:08.190
  • and embarrassment, and turned it into an opportunity
  • 00:04:08.200 --> 00:04:11.200
  • to share a great message with so many people.
  • 00:04:11.210 --> 00:04:14.240
  • - I was buried in humility--
  • 00:04:14.250 --> 00:04:16.230
  • - I told you, in the beginning.
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:18.090
  • - [Ray] Yeah, and I mentioned on the movie that you told me.
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:20.130
  • - [Kirk] So okay, it's called The Fool.
  • 00:04:20.140 --> 00:04:21.190
  • Why did you call the movie the fool?
  • 00:04:21.200 --> 00:04:23.190
  • - For about last 25 - 30 years, I've done a parody
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:27.060
  • with a coke can and a banana, you know that.
  • 00:04:27.070 --> 00:04:29.140
  • - And the coke can I say, billions of years ago,
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:32.110
  • a big explosion in space, and a big rock
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:34.090
  • was found floatin' through space,
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:36.010
  • and then a puddle of brown liquid, and disappeared,
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:38.290
  • and then tin crept up, formed itself, and a lid,
  • 00:04:39.000 --> 00:04:41.230
  • and then a tab, and then red paint fell
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:43.100
  • and saying Coca Cola, and say that's ridiculous.
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:45.270
  • There's no way you could believe
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:47.040
  • that a coca cola can happened by accident.
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:49.290
  • If it's made there's gotta be a maker.
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:52.210
  • If it's created, there's a creator.
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:55.010
  • And then I held up a banana and say, behold,
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:58.080
  • the atheists nightmare.
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:05:00.160
  • The banana is a tab at the top like a coke can.
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:02.250
  • It has perforations on the biodegradable wrapper.
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:05.170
  • It has outward indicators of inward contents,
  • 00:05:05.180 --> 00:05:07.090
  • green to early yellow just right, black too late.
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:10.200
  • And it was a parody.
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:11.270
  • I was making fun of the stupidity of atheism.
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:13.050
  • - Right, it was a joke.
  • 00:05:13.060 --> 00:05:14.200
  • - It was a joke, and so I asked you
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:17.260
  • if we could do it for a atheist episode.
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:19.210
  • You said atheists will mock you for it,
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:21.120
  • and I said nah nah this is Christian television,
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:23.230
  • atheists aren't gonna watch this.
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:26.010
  • And so we put it, and you were very gracious.
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:27.270
  • We put it in the program, and three years later
  • 00:05:27.280 --> 00:05:31.030
  • someone came up to me
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:32.190
  • and said you are all over the internet.
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:34.100
  • I said, what are ya talkin' about, all over the internet?
  • 00:05:34.110 --> 00:05:37.000
  • And someone had taken the parody, thrown away the coke can,
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:40.090
  • and said that I was saying that the banana
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:43.000
  • is proof of God's existence,
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:44.070
  • and it made me look like an idiot.
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:45.200
  • It really did.
  • 00:05:45.210 --> 00:05:47.060
  • And I thought, it's just a bump on the road, it'll pass.
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:49.200
  • And it did, until Richard Dawkins,
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:51.150
  • the world's most famous atheist,
  • 00:05:51.160 --> 00:05:52.250
  • began doing the parody with the banana
  • 00:05:52.260 --> 00:05:55.110
  • on international television, and getting laughs.
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:57.290
  • And then he did it in universities,
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:05:59.100
  • and then he cristened me the Banana Man,
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:01.200
  • and I instantly became--
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:04.170
  • - I tried to spare you from all of this.
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:06.170
  • - You certainty did.
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:07.240
  • - When we did that, I was saying wait,
  • 00:06:07.250 --> 00:06:09.070
  • it's out of context, this is gonna come across
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:12.110
  • like you were being serious. - It's stupid.
  • 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:13.280
  • And just no, you shouldn't, and you're like,
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.260
  • trust me, I've done this for 20 years
  • 00:06:15.270 --> 00:06:17.290
  • in churches, it's gonna work.
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:19.180
  • - Behold, the atheists nightmare.
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:22.160
  • Now if you go to the top of the banana,
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:24.030
  • you'll find as with a soda can makers,
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:25.240
  • they placed a tab at the top,
  • 00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:27.080
  • so God has placed a tab at the top.
  • 00:06:27.090 --> 00:06:29.180
  • When you pull the tab,
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:30.260
  • the contents don't squirt in your face.
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.270
  • And it was very, very humiliating,
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:34.230
  • but something wonderful happened,
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.110
  • and that is, atheists kept asking me
  • 00:06:36.120 --> 00:06:38.110
  • to go on their programs, and when they found
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:39.280
  • that I could string a whole sentence together,
  • 00:06:39.290 --> 00:06:41.170
  • they were kind of surprised.
  • 00:06:41.180 --> 00:06:42.270
  • He can speak?
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:43.220
  • Banana Man can speak?
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:45.050
  • And they'd let me preach, and they'd let me go
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:46.230
  • on their television programs, and interview me, and.
  • 00:06:46.240 --> 00:06:49.140
  • But I got to share the gospel as not hundreds
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.200
  • of thousands, but literally millions of atheists,
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:53.280
  • because of this Banana Man cloak.
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:55.140
  • It was like a superman suit
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:56.220
  • that I've fly in, and meet atheists.
  • 00:06:56.230 --> 00:06:59.110
  • They listen to me share the gospel,
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:00.280
  • so it really is a story of how God takes somethings
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:04.140
  • an absolute failure and makes it a success.
  • 00:07:04.150 --> 00:07:06.270
  • - I loved it, I thought it was great.
  • 00:07:06.280 --> 00:07:08.290
  • - [Ray] Yeah, it's very exciting.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:09.270
  • - It's like of, that's salt.
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.200
  • - It doesn't look like salt, it's pink.
  • 00:07:11.210 --> 00:07:12.270
  • - I know, it's like pink Himalayan, yeah.
  • 00:07:12.280 --> 00:07:16.000
  • - It's Himalayan salt?
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:16.280
  • - Himalayan pink salt.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:18.040
  • - From off (chuckles) of Mount Everest?
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:19.220
  • - And this is, look at this, this is Maple Syrup.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:22.170
  • - Okay, I wanna put that on my egg.
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:24.170
  • - So Ray, I want you to explain something
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.290
  • that most people have no idea.
  • 00:07:27.000 --> 00:07:29.050
  • They look at you and they see this man
  • 00:07:29.060 --> 00:07:31.020
  • who has a heart full of courage.
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:32.150
  • You're just absolutely fearless,
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:34.020
  • talking to crowds of strangers about controversial subjects,
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:37.090
  • but I know that you once struggled
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:39.200
  • with agoraphobia, which is a fear
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:42.080
  • of open places, public places. - Public places.
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:45.030
  • How is that possible, and how bad was that?
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:48.070
  • - It was devastating.
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:49.250
  • I was in the middle of the North Island in New Zealand,
  • 00:07:49.260 --> 00:07:52.060
  • I was waiting to speak somewhere on a Sunday afternoon.
  • 00:07:52.070 --> 00:07:54.050
  • I had a meeting in the afternoon,
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:56.020
  • and I just was like, as I was waiting in the room,
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:59.100
  • I was gonna have a snooze or something.
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:00.270
  • It was like a thousand demons just went (mouth whooshes),
  • 00:08:00.280 --> 00:08:03.030
  • and it was, I've never known anything like it.
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:04.150
  • It was like a nightmare, but I was awake,
  • 00:08:04.160 --> 00:08:08.020
  • and I couldn't shake myself out of it.
  • 00:08:08.030 --> 00:08:09.180
  • And it just devastated me.
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:10.210
  • - Like a panic attack?
  • 00:08:10.220 --> 00:08:11.240
  • - Absolute panic attack.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.120
  • It took my breath away, it was just unbelievable,
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:15.140
  • and so for the next 12 months,
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:17.170
  • I could not have a meal with my family at the table.
  • 00:08:17.180 --> 00:08:20.020
  • It was too traumatic for me.
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:21.220
  • I couldn't meet people, I still had to go at minister.
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:24.050
  • It took about five years for it to calm down,
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:27.230
  • but it gave me a tremendous empathy for people
  • 00:08:27.240 --> 00:08:30.170
  • that say, I get panic attacks, 'cause I know what it's like.
  • 00:08:30.180 --> 00:08:32.290
  • They're irrational and your heart palpitates,
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:35.140
  • ya flesh sweats, ya can't breathe.
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:38.090
  • And people think fear, or courage, is the absence of fear.
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.260
  • It's the conquering of it.
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:42.130
  • And the way I share on how to deal with your fears is,
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:47.140
  • could I ever get you to dive into a pond,
  • 00:08:48.200 --> 00:08:49.260
  • or a lake that had big chunks of ice in it,
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:52.050
  • that if you're there for three minutes, you'd be dead?
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:54.040
  • It's that cold, you'd say no way,
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:56.020
  • but if I said a four year old boy
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:57.020
  • has just fallen into that pond,
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:58.250
  • you wouldn't care about your flesh.
  • 00:08:58.260 --> 00:09:00.120
  • You'd dive in and just grab that kid and pull him out,
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:02.200
  • wouldn't even think about the cold.
  • 00:09:02.210 --> 00:09:04.180
  • Love is such a powerful thing,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.050
  • and the waters of personal evangelism are icy.
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:10.040
  • I say to people don't pray for less fear,
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:12.240
  • pray for more love, 'cause that's the problem.
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:15.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:16.170
  • - 'Cause love overcomes your fears,
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:18.030
  • and when I see anyone I wanna give a tract to or witness to,
  • 00:09:18.040 --> 00:09:21.230
  • they look like a Goliath to me, they really do,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:24.240
  • and I've just gotta run at Goliath and not listen
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:28.080
  • to my imaginations, 'cause my imagination's always
  • 00:09:28.090 --> 00:09:30.240
  • the same, no matter who I gotta share
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:32.020
  • the gospel with, I'm terrified.
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:34.110
  • - You're terrified?
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:35.180
  • - Oh, terrified, always, terrified.
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:37.060
  • - You seem to be fearless.
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:38.190
  • - No, no fearless.
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:39.240
  • When I sit on a plane, and I'm waiting
  • 00:09:39.250 --> 00:09:41.250
  • for someone to come and sit on the empty seat, I'm praying.
  • 00:09:41.260 --> 00:09:45.090
  • I'm praying they won't show up,
  • 00:09:45.100 --> 00:09:46.160
  • and I'm not kidding (chuckles).
  • 00:09:46.170 --> 00:09:48.040
  • I'm not kidding, I said please tell me that (chuckles)
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:51.220
  • oh no, look at the size of the guy, you know,
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:54.150
  • and I just have to say, do I care about myself,
  • 00:09:54.160 --> 00:09:57.080
  • or I care about this person where they spend eternity?
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:59.270
  • There's one question that's helped me more
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:01.110
  • than anything else deal with my fears,
  • 00:10:01.120 --> 00:10:03.000
  • is when I meet a stranger, I just say to them,
  • 00:10:03.010 --> 00:10:04.180
  • I get their name and respectfully say,
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:06.230
  • do you think there's an afterlife?
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:08.180
  • That doesn't mention God, Jesus, heaven, hell, the Bible,
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:11.110
  • repentance, any of those things.
  • 00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:13.140
  • It just asks the opinion of a person,
  • 00:10:13.150 --> 00:10:15.000
  • and I'm sincere and you find out, yeah,
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:17.020
  • I think about it all the time.
  • 00:10:17.030 --> 00:10:18.080
  • Are you scared of dying?
  • 00:10:18.090 --> 00:10:19.040
  • Yeah, I'm terrified.
  • 00:10:19.050 --> 00:10:20.160
  • Well, this isn't the anti-Christ,
  • 00:10:20.170 --> 00:10:22.130
  • he's not gonna stab me to death for sharing the gospel.
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:24.230
  • He believes in God.
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:25.210
  • He's caring about the afterlife,
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:27.100
  • and so that gives me courage to say,
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:29.030
  • well, do you think you're gonna make it to heaven?
  • 00:10:29.040 --> 00:10:30.070
  • Are you a good person?
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:31.200
  • And then we go through the commands.
  • 00:10:31.210 --> 00:10:32.290
  • - Mm, mm, now let me ask you this.
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:35.210
  • For people who aren't as familiar with what you devoted
  • 00:10:37.030 --> 00:10:41.020
  • your life to, you decided to change the game
  • 00:10:41.030 --> 00:10:43.270
  • with regard to personal evangelism.
  • 00:10:43.280 --> 00:10:46.280
  • What is it that you do that's different
  • 00:10:46.290 --> 00:10:48.190
  • from what you were seeing around you at the time?
  • 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:50.180
  • - Most of us try and talk people
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:50.210
  • into believing in the Bible, but there is an easier way.
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:56.160
  • And the easier way to convince someone
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:58.020
  • the Bible is the word of God, is this.
  • 00:10:58.030 --> 00:10:59.200
  • What I did was do what Jesus did.
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:02.020
  • Young man came running to Jesus, knelt down,
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:03.290
  • and said good master, what shall I do
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:05.140
  • to inherit eternal life?
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:06.230
  • He said, why do you call me good?
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:07.280
  • There's none good but God.
  • 00:11:07.290 --> 00:11:09.040
  • He improved the man's understanding
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:10.150
  • of the word good, and then he gave him
  • 00:11:10.160 --> 00:11:12.070
  • the 10 commandments to show what good is, God's standard.
  • 00:11:12.080 --> 00:11:16.190
  • Why did he do that?
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:17.220
  • Why you don't give someone a cure
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:21.050
  • without convincing someone they have the disease.
  • 00:11:21.060 --> 00:11:23.110
  • That's why you need a savior because you've sinned,
  • 00:11:23.120 --> 00:11:25.060
  • so that's what Jesus did, that's what problem---
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:27.040
  • - And the 10 commandments - The 10 commandments.
  • 00:11:27.050 --> 00:11:28.120
  • - will show them that they've got a problem.
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:30.150
  • - They need a savior, they need God's mercy.
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:32.120
  • It makes the way of the cross makes sense, so--
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:35.140
  • - Yeah, I always love that.
  • 00:11:35.150 --> 00:11:37.000
  • That's what I think attracted me to call you,
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:40.020
  • and why we became friends, was because I had never heard
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:42.110
  • that before, but it made sense.
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:43.200
  • If you were a doctor saying to me, here,
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:45.180
  • here's some chemotherapy, take this, it could kill you,
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:49.080
  • but you need to take it.
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:50.240
  • I would say, no, you got the wrong patient, right,
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:53.200
  • like give that to someone who has cancer.
  • 00:11:53.210 --> 00:11:55.220
  • But if you took the time to show me the x-ray,
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.130
  • and I saw the tumor inside, and then all of a sudden
  • 00:11:57.140 --> 00:12:00.060
  • I say doctor, what do I do?
  • 00:12:00.070 --> 00:12:01.120
  • He says don't worry, I have a cure.
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:03.160
  • And so suddenly I'm not pushing him away,
  • 00:12:03.170 --> 00:12:06.090
  • I'm asking him to help me, and he's my hero
  • 00:12:06.100 --> 00:12:09.170
  • because he's gonna help rescue me
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:11.190
  • from what's putting me in danger, I love that.
  • 00:12:11.200 --> 00:12:14.010
  • - You gotta appreciate it and appropriate it,
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:15.280
  • because you've understood the disease,
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:17.250
  • so you understand the cure, appreciate the cure, so.
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:21.020
  • - If you could look back and identify someone
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:24.230
  • who made the biggest difference for you--
  • 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:27.080
  • - Well for me, Charles Spurgeon was the big game changer.
  • 00:12:27.090 --> 00:12:30.170
  • He was called the - Explain who he is.
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:32.020
  • Prince of Preachers, an elegant, English preacher,
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:35.170
  • that if he talked in his sleep, he'd be quotable.
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:37.250
  • He'd say things, he was like a Shakespeare.
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:41.050
  • You prick your fingers on the thorns of conscience
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:43.230
  • as you try to pluck the rose of sin.
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.190
  • He'd say things like that, and I read a portion of sermon,
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:48.280
  • and he said what will you do when
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:50.100
  • the law comes in terror?
  • 00:12:50.110 --> 00:12:51.210
  • When the trumpet of the archangels shall tear
  • 00:12:51.220 --> 00:12:53.220
  • you from your grave when the eyes of God
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:55.150
  • shall burn you away, and they'll weight
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:56.290
  • into your guilty soul, when the book shall be open
  • 00:12:57.000 --> 00:12:58.290
  • and all your sin and shame shall be punished,
  • 00:12:59.000 --> 00:13:00.280
  • can you stand against an angry Lord on that day?
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:03.120
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:13:03.130 --> 00:13:04.190
  • - He's using the 10 commandments, the law,
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:06.140
  • to cause sinister tremble, so he'll understand the cross,
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:09.110
  • and but obviously the great game changer
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:13.050
  • for me was the one that saved me from death and hell.
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:15.200
  • You know, back in 1972, I was on a surfing trip,
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:19.250
  • very, very happy as non-Christian.
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:22.060
  • Enjoying the places of sin for a season,
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:24.020
  • just a good, clean cut young business man,
  • 00:13:24.030 --> 00:13:26.000
  • and hit it well, but I was burning
  • 00:13:26.010 --> 00:13:28.020
  • with unlawful sexual desire, like every red blooded guy,
  • 00:13:28.030 --> 00:13:31.210
  • and I was confronted with the words of Jesus.
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:34.190
  • You've heard it said by them,
  • 00:13:34.200 --> 00:13:35.250
  • of all you shall not commit adultery,
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.000
  • and I remember thinking that night,
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:38.170
  • I've never committed adultery, if there's a heaven
  • 00:13:38.180 --> 00:13:40.080
  • I'll make it, and then I saw this, but I say to you,
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:43.050
  • whoever looks upon a women to lust
  • 00:13:43.060 --> 00:13:44.250
  • for her has committed adultery already,
  • 00:13:44.260 --> 00:13:46.200
  • whether in his heart or his life.
  • 00:13:46.210 --> 00:13:48.080
  • (mouth swooshes) An arrow hit my chest,
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:49.260
  • I thought, does God see my thought life?
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:52.110
  • I'm in big trouble on judgment day,
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:54.000
  • and then I understood the cross.
  • 00:13:54.010 --> 00:13:56.000
  • That the love of God was manifest to me,
  • 00:13:56.010 --> 00:13:58.220
  • and talk about a game changer,
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.170
  • it was an absolute life changer where God opens
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:03.220
  • the eyes your understanding that the trees look different.
  • 00:14:03.230 --> 00:14:06.040
  • They raise their arms and praise to God,
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:07.260
  • and the flowers blossom to His glory,
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:09.190
  • the heavens declared as glory,
  • 00:14:09.200 --> 00:14:11.230
  • the birds sing us praises, everything looked different,
  • 00:14:11.240 --> 00:14:15.020
  • including the Bible, when I came to Christ.
  • 00:14:15.030 --> 00:14:17.160
  • And I'll never have words to express,
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:20.090
  • it'll take eternity to express the gratitude
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:22.080
  • that I have for Christ saving me from my sin.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:24.260
  • And that's the gratitude that motivates me,
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:26.270
  • it's the high-octane fuel that motivates me
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:29.200
  • to reach the lost, because I deserved hell
  • 00:14:29.210 --> 00:14:31.140
  • and God gave me heaven.
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:32.200
  • - I remember a time when I listened to your message,
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:37.040
  • Hell's Best Kept Secret, and I was so convicted
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.210
  • by what you were saying, and I remember,
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:42.010
  • thinking I've got to meet this guy, I've got to meet him.
  • 00:14:42.020 --> 00:14:44.210
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:46.060
  • And I just imagined you as this tall, John Wayne,
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:48.200
  • you know like, The Rock or something,
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:52.050
  • you know, this, and then I see--
  • 00:14:52.060 --> 00:14:55.020
  • - And it was like that.
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:56.090
  • - And then I see you, five foot, however many,
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:59.080
  • and with this accent, and you were handing
  • 00:14:59.090 --> 00:15:01.250
  • out little paper gospel tracts to people,
  • 00:15:01.260 --> 00:15:04.100
  • and they were laughing and loving them,
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:06.040
  • and asking you for more.
  • 00:15:06.050 --> 00:15:07.210
  • I was hiding under the table thinking oh,
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:09.180
  • who is this guy, what is he doing?
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:10.280
  • He's so embarrassing.
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:12.030
  • And they were asking you for more
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:13.030
  • to take home to their friends.
  • 00:15:13.040 --> 00:15:14.150
  • And I thought, this guy's utterly unique,
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:17.140
  • and I'm so glad that we became friends.
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:19.020
  • I'm so glad, you've taught me so much,
  • 00:15:19.030 --> 00:15:21.180
  • you've helped me to have more love for people
  • 00:15:21.190 --> 00:15:25.010
  • that causes me to overcome my fears and be able to share
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:29.210
  • the most important thing in my life with people,
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:31.260
  • so I'm very grateful for you.
  • 00:15:31.270 --> 00:15:33.250
  • - Well I'm unique, just like everybody else (chuckles).
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:36.070
  • - Just like everybody else.
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:38.060
  • Hey listen, if you could go back in time,
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:41.140
  • what advice would you give
  • 00:15:41.150 --> 00:15:43.230
  • to the 20 year old version of yourself?
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:46.130
  • - Be faithful in small things, be a servant, love people.
  • 00:15:48.010 --> 00:15:51.220
  • I remember my first international invitation came.
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:54.260
  • When I was a pastor, I was painting some restroom
  • 00:15:54.270 --> 00:15:59.160
  • around the back of the toilet area,
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:01.040
  • and I got a call, and it was an international invitation.
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:03.080
  • I thought that's weird, I was being a servant,
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:05.220
  • second international invitation came,
  • 00:16:05.230 --> 00:16:08.210
  • and I was pushing a ladies car.
  • 00:16:08.220 --> 00:16:10.080
  • She wanted it pushed, it was broken down,
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:12.070
  • and as I was pushing it, someone says,
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:13.260
  • there's an international call for you,
  • 00:16:13.270 --> 00:16:15.000
  • would you come and take it?
  • 00:16:15.010 --> 00:16:15.280
  • And I thought, that's amazing.
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:17.250
  • Both times.
  • 00:16:17.260 --> 00:16:19.020
  • So if God can trust you with small things,
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:21.140
  • he can trust you with big things.
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:22.270
  • If you're a servant here, he'll make you a servant there,
  • 00:16:22.280 --> 00:16:25.140
  • and trust you so it's a, start low, just love people,
  • 00:16:25.150 --> 00:16:29.150
  • and cry out for wisdom.
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:31.150
  • Every day I pray for wisdom.
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:33.010
  • I scream out to the heavens for wisdom every single day
  • 00:16:33.020 --> 00:16:36.090
  • I say, Lord make me wise, 'cause if you're wise,
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:38.050
  • you'll think right, speak right, say right,
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:39.260
  • and never do anything wrong if you're wise.
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:42.020
  • He that begets wisdom loves his own soul,
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:44.020
  • the scriptures say.
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:45.160
  • God was delighted when Solomon asked for wisdom.
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:48.060
  • The scriptures give an open invitation.
  • 00:16:48.070 --> 00:16:49.260
  • If any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God.
  • 00:16:49.270 --> 00:16:52.090
  • Bible says Jesus had the spirit of wisdom,
  • 00:16:52.100 --> 00:16:54.150
  • and I say look, make me wise, please.
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:57.050
  • Make me wise when I speak with the ungodly,
  • 00:16:57.060 --> 00:16:59.050
  • when I talk with my kids, when I talk with my wife,
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:02.150
  • let wisdom govern everything I do.
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:05.110
  • I pray for it daily, so that's what I'd say
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:07.020
  • to the young guy, start low, be a servant,
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:09.080
  • love people, share your faith, and seek God for wisdom.
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:12.200
  • - Have you had enough to eat?
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.140
  • - I am fed up.
  • 00:17:15.150 --> 00:17:16.120
  • - Are you fed up (chuckles)?
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:17.100
  • - [Ray] Oh, yeah (chuckles).
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:18.230
  • - Hey listen, I got something planned for us.
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:20.050
  • - Kirk, when we did our television program,
  • 00:17:20.060 --> 00:17:21.200
  • I had one rule with you, do you remember what it was?
  • 00:17:21.210 --> 00:17:23.170
  • - [Kirk] No.
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:24.120
  • - No surprises.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:25.120
  • - Surprise!
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:27.140
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:17:27.150 --> 00:17:28.190
  • All right let's go, follow me. - Okay.
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:29.120
  • (rock music)
  • 00:17:29.130 --> 00:17:31.250
  • If you think about how Jesus changed
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:39.050
  • the course of your life, what would you be doing today?
  • 00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:42.010
  • If you weren't saved? - I'd be in jail.
  • 00:17:42.020 --> 00:17:43.150
  • - I'd be in jail, I would've been accounted for that.
  • 00:17:43.160 --> 00:17:45.220
  • I've got this propensity to print the million dollar bills.
  • 00:17:45.230 --> 00:17:48.090
  • - [Kirk] (laughs) The propensity to, oh my.
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:51.020
  • - [Ray] I can't help it.
  • 00:17:51.030 --> 00:17:53.030
  • - When you're out there opening a preaching,
  • 00:17:53.040 --> 00:17:55.020
  • do you ever feel, I mean, have you ever been attacked?
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:57.140
  • Oh yes, a women beat me up in Santa Monica to a pulp,
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:18:00.050
  • took two weeks for the bruising to go down.
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:02.180
  • He used the F word twice to describe me,
  • 00:18:02.190 --> 00:18:04.050
  • and I said madam, can you watch your language?
  • 00:18:04.060 --> 00:18:05.280
  • There are ladies present.
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:07.110
  • - Whoa.
  • 00:18:07.120 --> 00:18:08.250
  • - Yeah, and she says, I'm a lady, I said madam,
  • 00:18:08.260 --> 00:18:10.270
  • you may be a woman, but you are not a lady,
  • 00:18:10.280 --> 00:18:12.190
  • and that's when she beat me up.
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:14.010
  • I should've kept my mouth closed.
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:15.100
  • (Kirk laughs)
  • 00:18:15.110 --> 00:18:16.170
  • - So I have a healthy concern for your safety.
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:19.290
  • So I decided that you and I are gonna take
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:23.060
  • some professional training lessons at a self-defense
  • 00:18:23.070 --> 00:18:27.130
  • and weapons disarmament course.
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:29.110
  • - You're not gonna put a gun in my hand?
  • 00:18:29.120 --> 00:18:31.100
  • - You need to know the art
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:33.100
  • of self-defense when you're out there,
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:35.140
  • the next time a woman comes up there to beat you up.
  • 00:18:35.150 --> 00:18:37.250
  • - Oh, turn the other cheek and then shoot.
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:40.070
  • (rock music)
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:42.200
  • (doors clank)
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:46.070
  • - [Kirk] You ready?
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:47.020
  • (rock music)
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:49.250
  • Kevin, how's it goin'?
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:52.050
  • - [Kevin] Good, how are you?
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:53.010
  • - Good, good to see ya.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:54.090
  • - Good to see you again, brother.
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:55.190
  • - My friend Ray.
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:56.130
  • - Hey Ray, how are ya?
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.210
  • - [Ray] Really good, please to meet you.
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:18:58.240
  • - [Kevin] Nice to meet you too.
  • 00:18:58.250 --> 00:19:00.040
  • - Ray and I have been friends for a long time,
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:02.280
  • and Ray spends a lot of time speaking
  • 00:19:02.290 --> 00:19:04.220
  • in front of a lot of people, and he has this nasty habit
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:07.080
  • of getting attacked and beat up by women.
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:10.040
  • - Well, what's one of the first things
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:11.170
  • about how you defend yourself, is your presence, right?
  • 00:19:11.180 --> 00:19:14.290
  • What you bring to the table.
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:16.150
  • So how I walk up and address Ray will also put him
  • 00:19:16.160 --> 00:19:20.060
  • in a state of either being uncomfortable
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:22.150
  • if I get too close, or more comfortable if I open up.
  • 00:19:22.160 --> 00:19:26.210
  • So if I'm wanting him to be comfortable with me,
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:29.160
  • I can predict myself by angling off a little bit.
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:32.220
  • Now if I had an aggressor, - Okay.
  • 00:19:32.230 --> 00:19:34.190
  • who is walking towards me and they won't stop,
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:36.180
  • like sir I need you to stop, sir please stay back,
  • 00:19:36.190 --> 00:19:39.030
  • please stay back, and I just let him walk into my fingers,
  • 00:19:39.040 --> 00:19:41.190
  • and I give him a little punch in his--
  • 00:19:41.200 --> 00:19:43.010
  • - Was that in the throat?
  • 00:19:43.020 --> 00:19:44.010
  • - Yeah. - Really?
  • 00:19:44.020 --> 00:19:45.060
  • Right in the little, - Right here.
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:46.110
  • process right there, right?
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:47.230
  • And they'll usually go wow, what'd you just do?
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:50.070
  • It totally resets their OODA loop.
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:53.040
  • An OODA loop is Observe, Orient, Decide, Act, right?
  • 00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:58.050
  • That's how people process.
  • 00:19:59.010 --> 00:20:00.250
  • - Good ol' OODA loop.
  • 00:20:00.260 --> 00:20:02.080
  • - Good ol' OODA loop - The good ol' ODDA loop.
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:03.170
  • (Kevin laughs)
  • 00:20:03.180 --> 00:20:05.020
  • He's gonna walk towards you like he's not gonna stop,
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.280
  • 'cause he's gonna be aggressive.
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:07.270
  • - Are you nervous, Kirk?
  • 00:20:07.280 --> 00:20:09.040
  • - I am, I don't know what you're gonna do.
  • 00:20:09.050 --> 00:20:10.060
  • (Kevin and Ray laughing)
  • 00:20:10.070 --> 00:20:11.140
  • All right, he saying, guys comin' up to him,
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:12.250
  • and he's goin', whoa,
  • 00:20:12.260 --> 00:20:13.270
  • yeah just stay back right there, how's it goin'?
  • 00:20:15.090 --> 00:20:16.240
  • - So now we'll go to, what if things were escalating?
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:19.250
  • All right, ready?
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:20.230
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:20:20.240 --> 00:20:22.150
  • And now, put your hands up get it every time.
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:25.050
  • There we go, so just having your hands
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:28.200
  • up make you 50% faster.
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.060
  • - Yeah, I never thought this day would come.
  • 00:20:30.070 --> 00:20:31.290
  • (Kevin and Kirk laughing)
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:33.170
  • - So we don't wanna just sit there
  • 00:20:33.180 --> 00:20:34.200
  • and defend all day, right?
  • 00:20:34.210 --> 00:20:36.020
  • 'Cause eventually something's gonna get through.
  • 00:20:36.030 --> 00:20:37.270
  • Best way to end somebody's plan, punch 'em in the face.
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:41.130
  • - I've never punched anyone in my life,
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:42.280
  • so this is new, yeah. - Yeah?
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:44.070
  • - [Kevin] Okay.
  • 00:20:44.080 --> 00:20:45.180
  • - [Ray] Se, pow!
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:46.210
  • - [Kevin] Nice.
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:47.290
  • So what happens if we put a knife in his hand?
  • 00:20:48.000 --> 00:20:50.120
  • - I die.
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:51.120
  • - [Kevin] No. (Ray laughs)
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:52.070
  • I'm gonna defend.
  • 00:20:52.080 --> 00:20:53.230
  • Boom, I give live action in this hand.
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:55.250
  • I want this to be strong.
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:20:57.130
  • As I punch, boom, I continue to push this back,
  • 00:20:57.140 --> 00:21:00.070
  • so I keep this pinned to his body,
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:02.020
  • and I may give him a couple more of these.
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:04.000
  • - So someone comes up like this--
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.180
  • - [Ray] Kirk Cameron with a knife, ah!
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:07.070
  • (Kirk laughs)
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:08.150
  • - So now what we're gonna do,
  • 00:21:08.160 --> 00:21:09.230
  • we're gonna make it a little more live,
  • 00:21:09.240 --> 00:21:11.030
  • so we're gonna give Kirk this bigger knife.
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:13.250
  • (knife buzzes)
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:15.240
  • - Ah!
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:16.190
  • (knife buzzes)
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:17.160
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:21:17.170 --> 00:21:18.130
  • - Oh.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:19.190
  • - (laughs) I wasn't expecting that.
  • 00:21:19.200 --> 00:21:20.150
  • (knife buzzes)
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:23.010
  • - Yeah!
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:23.260
  • (group laughs)
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:25.260
  • - I gotta do it.
  • 00:21:25.270 --> 00:21:27.020
  • (knife buzzes)
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:29.060
  • - Oo, whoa! (Ray laughs)
  • 00:21:29.070 --> 00:21:30.200
  • But what if something comes at you, and it's bigger,
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:32.080
  • Oh. (gun clanks)
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:33.080
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:21:33.090 --> 00:21:34.070
  • - [Kirk] My, look at that.
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:35.220
  • Look at that, look what you did, you broke the knife Ray.
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:40.010
  • Don't hit me.
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:40.260
  • - No.
  • 00:21:40.270 --> 00:21:41.220
  • (knife buzzes)
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:42.230
  • Ah!
  • 00:21:42.240 --> 00:21:43.290
  • - Did I get ya?
  • 00:21:44.000 --> 00:21:44.240
  • - Yes.
  • 00:21:44.250 --> 00:21:45.190
  • - Okay.
  • 00:21:45.200 --> 00:21:47.050
  • - Commonly, today, you have to deal with the handgun,
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.100
  • 'cause what we're really not worried about,
  • 00:21:49.110 --> 00:21:50.260
  • is the gun itself.
  • 00:21:50.270 --> 00:21:52.030
  • What are we really worried about?
  • 00:21:52.040 --> 00:21:53.050
  • - The bullet.
  • 00:21:53.060 --> 00:21:54.050
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:21:54.060 --> 00:21:55.220
  • What do I wanna say as soon as I see that weapon comin' out?
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:58.040
  • - Squirrel!
  • 00:21:58.050 --> 00:21:58.290
  • - Squirrel?
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:21:59.240
  • - [Kevin And Kirk] Gun.
  • 00:22:01.250 --> 00:22:02.260
  • - Oh, that's right.
  • 00:22:02.270 --> 00:22:04.090
  • - Gun, let everybody know. - Let somebody know.
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:05.170
  • - Hey buddy, give me all your money.
  • 00:22:05.180 --> 00:22:06.160
  • (Ray laughs)
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:08.130
  • - You got forgot what to do.
  • 00:22:08.140 --> 00:22:09.080
  • - No, no, no, no.
  • 00:22:09.090 --> 00:22:10.050
  • - Redirect punch, good, reach underneath, underneath.
  • 00:22:12.010 --> 00:22:15.140
  • Yeah, they're break and take,
  • 00:22:15.150 --> 00:22:16.190
  • there we go. - And then.
  • 00:22:16.200 --> 00:22:18.050
  • There we go, oh.
  • 00:22:19.050 --> 00:22:20.290
  • - Well I'd know what I'd do if I was a criminal.
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.170
  • - [Kevin] What?
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:23.120
  • - [Kirt] Oh.
  • 00:22:23.130 --> 00:22:24.250
  • I remember this, like that.
  • 00:22:24.260 --> 00:22:27.060
  • - Ah!
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:28.020
  • - And I take that out.
  • 00:22:28.290 --> 00:22:30.040
  • - Yeah, that's pretty good, Kirk.
  • 00:22:30.050 --> 00:22:30.240
  • - [Kirk] Yeah.
  • 00:22:30.250 --> 00:22:32.120
  • - [Kevin] Go, go, go, pin it to him, pin it down there.
  • 00:22:32.130 --> 00:22:34.170
  • - [Ray] Ah!
  • 00:22:34.180 --> 00:22:35.250
  • - [Kevin] There ya go, that's right.
  • 00:22:35.260 --> 00:22:37.010
  • That's right, watch - Yeah, I feel it twist.
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:37.210
  • that muzzle.
  • 00:22:37.220 --> 00:22:38.280
  • - Yeah, I got my fingers shot off right there.
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.220
  • - Some action is better than no action,
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:43.250
  • and action always beats reaction.
  • 00:22:43.260 --> 00:22:46.130
  • So instead of waiting for you to produce the gun,
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:49.200
  • I could just block it, and hit.
  • 00:22:49.210 --> 00:22:52.250
  • I don't have to wait.
  • 00:22:52.260 --> 00:22:53.220
  • - So what's, hey.
  • 00:22:53.230 --> 00:22:54.170
  • - Ah!
  • 00:22:54.180 --> 00:22:55.120
  • - [Kevin] Get it down.
  • 00:22:55.130 --> 00:22:56.180
  • There it is. - Ow.
  • 00:22:56.190 --> 00:22:58.150
  • - Get back, stop fighting me, get on the ground.
  • 00:22:58.160 --> 00:23:00.200
  • Get no the ground. - Yeah, I like your sweater.
  • 00:23:00.210 --> 00:23:01.280
  • - That's the wrong time for I like your sweater.
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.230
  • (group laughs)
  • 00:23:03.240 --> 00:23:05.000
  • What I would is, as you present it,
  • 00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:08.010
  • nice sweater, and then.
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:09.010
  • - Ah!
  • 00:23:09.020 --> 00:23:10.000
  • Can you hear my finger?
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:11.090
  • - We have these dangerous weapons here.
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:13.170
  • (rock music)
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:15.230
  • - There we go.
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:16.270
  • - [Kirk] That's it.
  • 00:23:16.280 --> 00:23:17.220
  • (gun clanks)
  • 00:23:17.230 --> 00:23:20.070
  • I wanna try it.
  • 00:23:20.080 --> 00:23:21.040
  • - [Ray] Okay.
  • 00:23:21.050 --> 00:23:22.020
  • - Oh, wait, wait (laughs).
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:24.200
  • - Surprise.
  • 00:23:24.210 --> 00:23:25.190
  • - But you can only squirt me unless
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:27.210
  • you see me go for the gun.
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:29.000
  • - Okay.
  • 00:23:29.010 --> 00:23:30.150
  • - I don't want any trouble, can't we just be friends?
  • 00:23:30.160 --> 00:23:31.190
  • Oh, ah, ah, ah. (Kevin and Ray laughing)
  • 00:23:31.200 --> 00:23:34.220
  • (rock music)
  • 00:23:34.230 --> 00:23:37.280
  • - So this is where it's good to have
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:39.080
  • some medical training too. - You got me.
  • 00:23:39.090 --> 00:23:41.070
  • (group laughs)
  • 00:23:41.080 --> 00:23:42.190
  • - Kevin, thank you, obviously we need some practice,
  • 00:23:42.200 --> 00:23:44.020
  • but I think he's on the right road.
  • 00:23:44.030 --> 00:23:46.060
  • - He's definitely waking up the warrior.
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:49.070
  • Right? - Yes.
  • 00:23:49.080 --> 00:23:50.210
  • - All right, all right, thanks for comin', we'll be back.
  • 00:23:50.220 --> 00:23:51.200
  • - [Ray] Thanks. - See ya, sir.
  • 00:23:51.210 --> 00:23:52.230
  • (rock music)
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:55.060
  • - Be faithful in small things.
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:12.070
  • Be a servant, love people.
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:13.200
  • God can trust you with small things,
  • 00:24:13.210 --> 00:24:15.220
  • he can trust you with big things.
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:16.280
  • I say to people, don't pray for less fear,
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:19.160
  • pray for more love.
  • 00:24:19.170 --> 00:24:21.040
  • (rock music)
  • 00:24:21.050 --> 00:24:23.180
