  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: ON
  • 00:00:11.130 --> 00:00:14.130
  • THE SCREEN BEHIND ME ARE 13
  • 00:00:14.130 --> 00:00:16.250
  • OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:19.010
  • BRILLIANT, EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN
  • 00:00:19.110 --> 00:00:22.110
  • ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:24.280
  • THESE --
  • 00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:26.140
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:26.260 --> 00:00:29.260
  • THESE ARE MY GRANDCHILDREN,
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:31.050
  • MY GRANDCHILDREN AND DIANA'S
  • 00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:32.190
  • GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:00:32.190 --> 00:00:34.080
  • THEY ARE ALL HONOR STUDENTS AT
  • 00:00:34.080 --> 00:00:36.060
  • THE SCHOOL WHERE THEY ATTEND.
  • 00:00:36.060 --> 00:00:38.050
  • THEY ARE ALL COMMITTED TO
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:39.070
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:00:39.070 --> 00:00:40.240
  • THEY AND THEIR FIVE PARENTS
  • 00:00:40.290 --> 00:00:43.290
  • ARE THE JOY OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:00:43.290 --> 00:00:46.200
  • THERE IS A FAMILY IN OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:00:46.210 --> 00:00:49.210
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.270
  • THE 21ST CENTURY, HOWEVER,
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:55.180
  • HAS KIND OF GOT THINGS TURNED
  • 00:00:55.180 --> 00:00:56.230
  • AROUND.
  • 00:00:56.230 --> 00:00:58.150
  • WHEN I WAS A CHILD,
  • 00:00:58.150 --> 00:00:59.200
  • CHILDREN OBEYED.
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:02.140
  • TODAY, AMERICA'S PARENTS SEND
  • 00:01:02.140 --> 00:01:03.290
  • THEIR DOGS TO OBEDIENCE SCHOOL
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:07.050
  • AND THEY SEND THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:08.170
  • TO CAMP APACHE.
  • 00:01:08.290 --> 00:01:11.290
  • THE RESULT IS THE DOGS BEHAVE
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:14.010
  • AND THE CHILDREN GO
  • 00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:14.270
  • ON THE WARPATH.
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:16.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:17.230
  • CHILDREN CAN BE THE SOURCE
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:18.200
  • OF ENDLESS QUESTIONS.
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:20.050
  • AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD BOY
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:21.040
  • WAS WALKING DOWN THE SIDEWALK
  • 00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:22.170
  • WITH HIS FATHER,
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:23.070
  • AND HE SAID, "DAD, WHAT MAKES
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:24.180
  • THE GRASS GREEN?"
  • 00:01:24.180 --> 00:01:25.130
  • HIS DAD SAID,
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:26.000
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:26.160
  • HE SAID, "DAD, WHAT MAKES
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:28.130
  • THE SKY BLUE?"
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:29.040
  • AND THE FATHER SAID,
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:29.240
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:30.140
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:31.000
  • "DAD, WHAT MAKES IT RAIN?"
  • 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:32.280
  • AND THE FATHER SAID,
  • 00:01:32.280 --> 00:01:33.140
  • "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:34.210
  • THE BOY SAID,
  • 00:01:34.210 --> 00:01:35.040
  • "DAD, YOU DON'T MIND ME ASKING
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:36.200
  • QUESTIONS; DO YOU?"
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:38.040
  • THE FATHER SAID, "NO.
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:39.000
  • HOW ARE YOU EVER GOING TO LEARN
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:39.260
  • ANYTHING?"
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:41.140
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:41.140 --> 00:01:44.130
  • WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE LITTLE,
  • 00:01:44.130 --> 00:01:45.250
  • THEY ASKED QUESTIONS,
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:47.200
  • AND SOMETIMES HARD QUESTIONS.
  • 00:01:47.200 --> 00:01:50.060
  • "DAD, HOW DO BABIES GET HERE?"
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:51.280
  • I ANSWERED,
  • 00:01:51.280 --> 00:01:52.130
  • "THE LORD SENDS THEM."
  • 00:01:52.130 --> 00:01:54.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:54.070 --> 00:01:55.010
  • AND THEN IT WENT TO THE STORK
  • 00:01:55.010 --> 00:01:56.120
  • UNTIL MATTHEW GOT HERE.
  • 00:01:56.120 --> 00:01:58.210
  • AND ABOUT AGE SIX, HE SAID,
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:00.050
  • "DAD, I KNOW GOD SENDS BABIES,
  • 00:02:00.050 --> 00:02:02.240
  • BUT HOW DOES HE SEND BABIES?"
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:05.240
  • I SAID,
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:06.130
  • "THAT'S FOR A LATER
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:07.050
  • DISCUSSION."
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:09.060
  • THE FACT OF LIFE CONCERNING OUR
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:11.030
  • CHILDREN IS THAT EVERY PARENT
  • 00:02:11.030 --> 00:02:13.030
  • IN THIS AUDIENCE HAS A CHOICE,
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:16.230
  • AND THAT CHOICE IS TO RAISE
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:18.040
  • YOUR CHILDREN BY THE LAW OF GOD
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:21.220
  • OR THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE,
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:23.280
  • ONE OF THE THOSE TWO.
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:25.160
  • THERE IS NO EXCEPTION.
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:27.170
  • THE LAW OF GOD BRINGS LOVE,
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:29.220
  • JOY, PEACE,
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:32.040
  • UNITY, PROSPERITY,
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:34.270
  • HAPPINESS UNLIMITED,
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:36.280
  • AND FINALLY ETERNAL LIFE
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:38.160
  • IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:40.000
  • THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE BRINGS
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:41.130
  • A CURSE.
  • 00:02:41.130 --> 00:02:43.000
  • IT BRINGS ENDLESS PAIN.
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:45.090
  • IT BRINGS SUFFERING.
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:47.060
  • IT BRINGS REBELLION.
  • 00:02:47.060 --> 00:02:48.140
  • AND YOU'RE WATCHING THAT
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:49.170
  • REBELLION IN THE STREETS OF
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:50.260
  • AMERICA RIGHT NOW ON THE
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:52.220
  • TELEVISION SET WITH EVERY ONE
  • 00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:54.100
  • OF THESE CLASHES THAT WE'RE
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:56.150
  • HAVING BETWEEN LARGE SECTIONS
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:02:59.170
  • OF OUR NATION THAT ARE IN
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:00.260
  • COMBAT WITH EACH OTHER.
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:03.120
  • AMERICA HAD BETTER HAVE
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:05.000
  • A SPIRITUAL REVIVAL OR WE'RE
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:07.160
  • GOING TO HAVE A REVOLUTION.
  • 00:03:07.160 --> 00:03:09.020
  • I CAN TELL YOU THAT'S GOING
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:10.010
  • TO BE THE FACT.
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:11.180
  • AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE,
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:13.010
  • WE HAVE CHOSEN THE LORD.
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:15.210
  • AND WE WILL SERVE HIM
  • 00:03:15.210 --> 00:03:16.280
  • AND SERVE HIM ONLY.
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:19.140
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:24.210
  • PSALM 127:3, "BEHOLD,
  • 00:03:24.260 --> 00:03:27.260
  • CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:28.260
  • OF THE LORD.
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.040
  • THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB
  • 00:03:30.040 --> 00:03:30.270
  • IS A REWARD.
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:32.150
  • LIKE ARROWS IN THE HAND
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:33.260
  • OF A WARRIOR,
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:34.210
  • SO ARE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:35.280
  • OF ONE'S YOUTH.
  • 00:03:35.280 --> 00:03:37.160
  • HAPPY IS THE MAN
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:38.210
  • WHO HAS HIS QUIVER FULL OF THEM.
  • 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:41.020
  • THEY SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED,
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:43.030
  • BUT SHALL SPEAK WITH
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:44.170
  • THEIR ENEMIES IN THE GATES."
  • 00:03:44.170 --> 00:03:46.190
  • FATHER, THANK YOU FOR THE JOY
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:49.130
  • AND THE PLEASURE
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.050
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD'S WORD
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:53.190
  • THAT SHOWS US GOD'S PORTRAIT
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:56.090
  • OF CHILDREN,
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:57.160
  • OF FATHERS AND MOTHERS.
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:03:59.180
  • TODAY HELP US HEAR
  • 00:03:59.180 --> 00:04:01.010
  • THIS PORTRAIT OF CHILDREN
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:04.000
  • AND INSTRUCT THEM IN THE WAY
  • 00:04:04.000 --> 00:04:05.290
  • OF THE LORD;
  • 00:04:05.290 --> 00:04:07.170
  • THAT THEIR LIVES MAY BE FILLED
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:09.150
  • WITH BLESSINGS.
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.140
  • IN JESUS' NAME, WE PRAY.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.250
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:14.010
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:14.290
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:16.000
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:20.040
  • THERE IS AN INVADING ARMY
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:23.130
  • THAT'S ABOUT TO SEIZE
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:24.130
  • OUR SCHOOLS,
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:26.080
  • OUR CHURCHES,
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:27.230
  • AND OUR HOMES.
  • 00:04:27.230 --> 00:04:29.130
  • THIS INVADING ARMY WILL
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:30.200
  • EVENTUALLY TAKE OVER OUR
  • 00:04:30.200 --> 00:04:31.290
  • GOVERNMENT AND DETERMINE THE
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.210
  • MORAL AND SPIRITUAL CLIMATE
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:36.090
  • OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:39.090
  • THIS INVADING ARMY IS NOT
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:41.110
  • COMING.
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:42.030
  • THIS INVADING ARMY IS HERE,
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:45.010
  • AND THIS ARMY IS OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:48.210
  • HOW ARE WE PREPARING FOR OUR
  • 00:04:48.210 --> 00:04:50.190
  • CHILDREN TO BE FUTURE LEADERS
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:52.220
  • OF AMERICA?
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:53.240
  • WE OPENED THE DOORS OF OUR
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:55.020
  • MAGNIFICENT NEW CORNERSTONE
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:57.030
  • CHRISTIAN SCHOOL TO DEMONSTRATE
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:05:01.000
  • TO OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:02.070
  • AND TO OUR CONGREGATION,
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:04.080
  • AND TO OUR CITY,
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:05.100
  • AND TO OUR NATION, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.170
  • HOW IMPORTANT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:05:08.170 --> 00:05:10.110
  • OUR CHILDREN TO BE.
  • 00:05:10.110 --> 00:05:12.180
  • FIRST LET ME TELL YOU THIS
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:13.270
  • SCHOOL IS A GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:16.190
  • ONLY GOD COULD MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:19.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:22.130
  • AND LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:05:22.130 --> 00:05:22.290
  • THERE IS NO FINER SCHOOL
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:24.260
  • IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:27.150
  • IT'S ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:29.020
  • IS OFF THE CHARTS.
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:30.180
  • IT'S ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS
  • 00:05:30.180 --> 00:05:32.090
  • ARE ALREADY ESTABLISHED.
  • 00:05:32.090 --> 00:05:34.040
  • I HAVE BEEN ASKED,
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.030
  • "SO WHY ARE WE MAKING
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.170
  • THIS GREAT SACRIFICE?"
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:38.060
  • AND THE ANSWER IS THIS,
  • 00:05:38.060 --> 00:05:39.290
  • IF WE FAIL OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:43.050
  • WE HAVE FAILED AT LIFE.
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.200
  • DON'T YOU EVER FORGET THAT.
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:47.250
  • I DON'T CARE IF YOU MAKE
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:48.240
  • A MILLION DOLLARS A MINUTE.
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:51.200
  • IF YOU FAIL AS A FATHER,
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:53.150
  • YOU ARE A FAILURE, PERIOD.
  • 00:05:54.050 --> 00:05:57.050
  • SOLOMON, THE WISEST MAN
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.180
  • IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:05:59.160
  • SAYS, "THE FEAR OF THE LORD
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:01.190
  • IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:06:01.190 --> 00:06:03.200
  • BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:05.210
  • AND INSTRUCTION."
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.120
  • WE MAKE THIS GREAT SACRIFICE
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:09.010
  • BECAUSE OUR CHILDREN ARE GOING
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:10.230
  • TO BE LEADERS,
  • 00:06:10.230 --> 00:06:11.280
  • LOCALLY AND NATIONALLY,
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:13.080
  • FOR THE WORLD TOMORROW.
  • 00:06:13.080 --> 00:06:15.060

  • CAR AND HE KNEW WHAT WAS GOING
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:27.150
  • TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:27.150 --> 00:14:28.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:28.190 --> 00:14:29.120

  • SIDEWALK, SCREAMING, "NO!
  • 00:14:30.210 --> 00:14:32.260

  • AND I KISSED HIM.
  • 00:14:41.140 --> 00:14:42.040
  • AND A LADY POKED HER HEAD OUT
  • 00:14:42.040 --> 00:14:43.180
  • OF A HOUSE, AND SAID,
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:44.150

  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:58.190 --> 00:14:59.230
  • THE BLESSINGS OF THE FATHER CAN

  • RELEASE DIVINE FAVOR OF GOD
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:03.290
  • UPON THAT CHILD.
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:06.050
  • AND A CHILD WITH GOD'S FAVOR

  • CAN CLIMB THE STAIRWAY
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:09.180
  • TO THE STARS.
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:11.200
  • WHY DO I PRESS THE POINT?
  • 00:15:11.200 --> 00:15:12.270
  • BECAUSE THERE ARE CHILDREN

  • AND SOMETIMES THEIR MOTHER.
  • 00:15:26.150 --> 00:15:29.000
  • BUT THEIR FATHER HAS ABANDONED
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:30.080
  • THEM.
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:30.220
  • MAYBE PHYSICALLY,

  • DIMENSION HE'S ABANDONED THEM.
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:34.190
  • AND I ASSURE YOU THEY LIVE
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:36.130
  • A HANDICAP LIFE.
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:38.140
  • SOME CHILDREN'S FATHERS ARE

  • IN PRISON.
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:40.200
  • AND WHEN DAD GOES TO PRISON,
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:42.010
  • THE WIFE AND THE CHILDREN
  • 00:15:42.010 --> 00:15:42.290
  • GO TO JAIL WITH HIM.
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:44.120
  • THEY SUFFER EVERY DAY,
  • 00:15:44.120 --> 00:15:45.270
  • BECAUSE HE'S GONE.

  • HE MAY BE GUILTY.

  • BUT IT DOESN'T STOP THE PAIN
  • 00:15:49.180 --> 00:15:51.020
  • AND THE ANGUISH OF THE CHILDREN
  • 00:15:51.020 --> 00:15:52.170
  • IN THE HOME.
  • 00:15:52.170 --> 00:15:54.200
  • OUR CHURCH HAS SOMETHING CALLED
  • 00:15:54.200 --> 00:15:56.210
  • "OPERATION ANGEL TREE."
  • 00:15:56.210 --> 00:15:58.250
  • EVERY DECEMBER,
  • 00:15:58.250 --> 00:15:59.200
  • WE GATHER THOUSANDS OF GIFTS
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:02.090
  • AND CARRY THEM TO THE HOMES
  • 00:16:02.090 --> 00:16:03.180
  • OF CHILDREN WHOSE FATHERS

  • ARE IN JAIL OR IN PRISON,
  • 00:16:05.090 --> 00:16:07.080
  • SO THAT THEY DON'T SUFFER THE
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:08.120
  • PAIN AND PENALTY THEIR FATHER
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:10.080
  • HAS BROUGHT TO THE HOUSE.
  • 00:16:10.080 --> 00:16:12.180
  • THE PARENTS OF SOME CHILDREN
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:13.280
  • ARE ADDICTED TO DRUGS
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:15.060
  • OR ALCOHOL.
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:16.130
  • THE ADDICTION MAKES YOU
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:17.110
  • A MONSTER FOR A HELPLESS CHILD.
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:21.080
  • SOME CHILDREN HAVE FATHERS
  • 00:16:21.080 --> 00:16:22.120
  • AND MOTHERS WHO SLAP THEM,
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:23.260
  • WHO HIT THEM,
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:24.290
  • WHO VERBALLY TERRORIZE THEM,
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:26.130
  • BECAUSE THE PARENT
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:28.000
  • IS EMOTIONALLY ILL WITH ANGER,
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:30.200
  • WITH RESENTMENT,
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:31.160
  • WITH BITTERNESS,

  • WITH REJECTION,
  • 00:16:32.120 --> 00:16:34.000
  • OF THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO THEM
  • 00:16:34.000 --> 00:16:35.100
  • IN THE PAST THAT ARE BEING
  • 00:16:35.250 --> 00:16:38.250
  • DEMONSTRATED NOW.
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:40.270
  • IF STATISTICS ARE CORRECT,
  • 00:16:40.270 --> 00:16:42.050
  • THERE ARE CHILDREN
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:42.270
  • IN THE AUDIENCE,
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.040
  • WHO ARE SEXUALLY ABUSED.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.070
  • THEY FEEL GUILTY.
  • 00:16:46.070 --> 00:16:47.170
  • THEY FEEL ASHAMED.
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:49.030
  • THEY FEEL THEY DID SOMETHING
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:50.080
  • WRONG TO CAUSE AN ABUSIVE
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:52.060
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:16:52.060 --> 00:16:53.230
  • CHILDREN, LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:16:53.230 --> 00:16:55.290
  • YOU DID NOT CAUSE THIS!
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:59.070
  • WHOEVER IS DOING THIS IS SICK
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:02.060
  • AND FULL OF THE DEVIL HIMSELF.
  • 00:17:02.180 --> 00:17:05.180
  • IF YOU WILL CALL MY OFFICE,
  • 00:17:05.180 --> 00:17:07.180
  • I WILL GET YOU HELP
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:09.080
  • IMMEDIATELY.
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:10.150
  • AND I WILL PUT YOUR TORMENTER
  • 00:17:10.150 --> 00:17:12.160
  • IN JAIL WHERE THEY BELONG.
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:16.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:25.240
  • WHAT YOUR KIDS WANT THAT MONEY
  • 00:17:25.240 --> 00:17:27.100
  • CAN'T BUY IS YOUR TIME.
  • 00:17:28.190 --> 00:17:31.190
  • THE MOST PRECIOUS THING
  • 00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:32.200
  • THAT YOU HAVE IS YOUR TIME.
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:36.170

  • IS YOUR TIME.
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:40.070
  • I THINK GIVING GIFTS IS OFTEN
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:42.170
  • AN EXCUSE FOR NOT GIVING
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:45.150
  • THE GREATEST GIFT,
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:46.290
  • WHICH IS YOURSELF.
  • 00:17:46.290 --> 00:17:49.010
  • WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE HOME,
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:50.200
  • I WENT TO EVERY BALL GAME
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:52.260
  • IF I WAS IN THE CITY.
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:55.110
  • I WENT TO RECITALS.

  • THE MORE CHILDREN YOU HAVE,
