  • - GOOD EVENING, RAVI,
  • 00:00:40.090 --> 00:00:42.030
  • IT'S SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU
  • 00:00:42.030 --> 00:00:43.000
  • HERE WITH US TONIGHT.
  • 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:44.050
  • AND I JUST HAVE
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:45.050
  • A FEW QUESTIONS FOR YOU
  • 00:00:45.050 --> 00:00:46.140
  • BEFORE WE HEAR FROM YOU BECAUSE
  • 00:00:46.140 --> 00:00:48.000
  • I KNOW PEOPLE'VE READ YOUR BOOKS
  • 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:49.010
  • AND HEARD YOU ON THE RADIO,
  • 00:00:49.010 --> 00:00:50.050
  • BUT IT'S NICE TO HAVE A CHANCE
  • 00:00:50.050 --> 00:00:51.100
  • JUST TO GET TO KNOW YOU
  • 00:00:51.100 --> 00:00:52.050
  • A LITTLE BIT MORE
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:52.270
  • PERSONALLY, FIRST.
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:54.000
  • AND SO MY FIRST QUESTION
  • 00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:55.260
  • IS OBVIOUSLY YOU WERE BORN
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:57.160
  • IN CHENNAI IN SOUTHERN INDIA
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:00:59.030
  • AND THEN YOU WERE RAISED
  • 00:00:59.030 --> 00:00:59.230
  • IN THE NORTH IN DELHI.
  • 00:00:59.230 --> 00:01:01.150
  • AND BUT AS SOMEONE WHO GREW UP
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.010
  • IN THAT CONTEXT,
  • 00:01:03.010 --> 00:01:04.050
  • CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT
  • 00:01:04.050 --> 00:01:05.050
  • WHAT WERE THE VALUES
  • 00:01:05.050 --> 00:01:06.190
  • OF THAT CULTURE
  • 00:01:06.190 --> 00:01:07.130
  • THAT HAD THE STRONGEST
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:08.170
  • IMPRESSION ON YOU
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:09.190
  • - MAY I BEGIN THEN
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.160
  • BY APOLOGIZING FOR MY VOICE.
  • 00:01:13.230 --> 00:01:16.230
  • AS YOU HEARD,
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:17.190
  • I HAD THIS SURGERY ON TUESDAY
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:20.120
  • AND I THINK THIS
  • 00:01:20.120 --> 00:01:21.140
  • IS A LINGERING EFFECT
  • 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:22.130
  • OF THE ANESTHETIC.
  • 00:01:22.130 --> 00:01:23.150
  • I HAVE NO OTHER
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:24.100
  • EXPLANATION FOR IT.
  • 00:01:24.100 --> 00:01:25.250
  • I BEGAN TO LOSE IT
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:27.010
  • DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:28.080
  • AND IT WAS GETTING
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:28.250
  • WORSE AND WORSE SO TODAY
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:30.030
  • I JUST HAVE EXERCISED IT A BIT.
  • 00:01:30.030 --> 00:01:32.070
  • BUT DON'T BE FEARFUL.
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:33.260
  • I HOPE AS I'M USING IT,
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:35.220
  • IT'LL JUST GET
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:37.020
  • THE VOCAL CORDS ACCUSTOMED
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:38.050
  • TO SPEAKING AGAIN.
  • 00:01:38.050 --> 00:01:40.050
  • I'M NOT IN ANY PAIN.
  • 00:01:40.050 --> 00:01:41.200
  • I'M JUST -- DON'T HAVE
  • 00:01:41.200 --> 00:01:43.220
  • THE STRENGTH OF VOICE
  • 00:01:43.220 --> 00:01:44.190
  • THAT I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE.
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:46.090
  • SO THANK YOU
  • 00:01:46.090 --> 00:01:46.270
  • FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:49.100
  • JO, I'VE GOT SOME NEWS
  • 00:01:49.100 --> 00:01:50.120
  • FOR YOU TOO.
  • 00:01:50.120 --> 00:01:51.230
  • I WAS ASKED WHILE
  • 00:01:51.230 --> 00:01:52.240
  • I WAS TRAVELING THIS WEEK,
  • 00:01:52.240 --> 00:01:54.150
  • 'IS THAT YOUR DAUGHTER
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:55.120
  • WHOSE VOICE WE HEAR
  • 00:01:55.120 --> 00:01:57.000
  • ON THE RADIO?'
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:58.030
  • SO I TOLD THEM 'NO',
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:02:00.100
  • SHE IS MARRIED
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:01.070
  • TO A WONDERFUL COLLEAGUE OF MINE
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:02.290
  • AND VINCE AND JO LEAD
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:04.040
  • OUR MINISTRY HERE.
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:07.010
  • VALUES.
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:08.280
  • I NEVER THOUGHT OF THEM.
  • 00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:10.290
  • YOU KNOW, NEVER GAVE IT
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:11.210
  • A THOUGHT GROWING UP.
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:14.190
  • YOU SORT OF IMBIBE IT
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:17.160
  • IN THE EASTERN CULTURE.
  • 00:02:17.160 --> 00:02:19.090
  • YOU JUST GROW ACCUSTOMED
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:21.290
  • TO THE VALUES THAT YOU SEE
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:23.280
  • YOUR PARENTS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:26.130
  • OR YOUR PARENTS ENCOURAGING
  • 00:02:26.130 --> 00:02:28.020
  • YOU TO DO.
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:28.260
  • AND THE SAME IS CARRIED ON
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:30.190
  • IN THE SCHOOL, THE TEACHERS,
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:32.190
  • AND THE FRIENDS.
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:33.290
  • THE INDIAN CULTURE
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.010
  • IS FAR FROM BEING MONOLITHIC.
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:38.140
  • IN ONE SENSE
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:38.280
  • IT IS 80% BEING HINDU,
  • 00:02:38.280 --> 00:02:41.130
  • BUT THEN YOU'VE GOT THE MUSLIMS,
  • 00:02:41.130 --> 00:02:43.110
  • THE BUDDHIST,
  • 00:02:43.110 --> 00:02:44.100
  • THE SIKHS, THE JAINS,
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:45.230
  • AND THE CHRISTIANS AS WELL.
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.010
  • THE BASIC VALUES
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:49.080
  • ARE ALLEGIANCE TO FAMILY,
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:51.250
  • TRUTH-TELLING,
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:54.010
  • EXCELLING IN YOUR SCHOOL,
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:56.020
  • AND BASICALLY AVOIDING
  • 00:02:56.020 --> 00:02:58.070
  • HURTING ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:02:58.070 --> 00:03:00.170
  • NOT THAT WE ABIDED BY THAT,
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:02.200
  • BUT THAT'S WHAT YOU REALLY
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:04.190
  • GET INTO YOUR SYSTEM OF THOUGHT.
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:06.100
  • BUT TO THINK OF IT
  • 00:03:06.100 --> 00:03:07.180
  • AS SOMETHING WE STUDIED
  • 00:03:07.180 --> 00:03:09.120
  • AND LEARNED
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:10.140
  • NEVER CROSSED MY MIND
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:11.280
  • TILL REALLY I HAD BECAME
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:13.260
  • A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:03:13.260 --> 00:03:16.060
  • - AND FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:03:16.060 --> 00:03:17.130
  • ONE OF YOUR PRIMARY VALUES
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:18.060
  • - THAT IS CORRECT.
  • 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:21.040
  • - WHICH I CAN RESPECT
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:21.250
  • AS A BRIT AS WELL.
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:23.050
  • - AND FOOD.
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:23.200
  • AND FOOD.
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:24.180
  • - FOOD, YES,
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:25.160
  • WHICH HASN'T CHANGED
  • 00:03:25.160 --> 00:03:25.290
  • TO THIS DAY.
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:26.260
  • RAVI IS A CONNOISSEUR
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:28.010
  • OF THE BEST FOOD AT WAFFLE HOUSE
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:29.080
  • BY THE WAY IN CASE
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:30.210
  • YOU'RE NOT SURE WHERE TO GO
  • 00:03:30.210 --> 00:03:32.020
  • AND WHAT TO ORDER OFF THE MENU.
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:34.020
  • AND, BUT RAVI YOU'VE SPOKEN
  • 00:03:34.020 --> 00:03:35.110
  • NUMEROUS TIMES ABOUT
  • 00:03:35.110 --> 00:03:36.110
  • HOW YOU BECAME A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:37.230
  • AS A TEENAGER ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:38.250
  • ON A BED OF SUICIDE
  • 00:03:38.250 --> 00:03:39.270
  • IN A HOSPITAL IN DELHI.
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:41.200
  • AND COULD YOU TELL US
  • 00:03:41.200 --> 00:03:43.080
  • A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT IT WAS
  • 00:03:43.080 --> 00:03:44.100
  • AT THAT TIME IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:45.270
  • THAT LED YOU TO BELIEVE
  • 00:03:45.270 --> 00:03:46.260
  • THAT ACTUALLY LIFE
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:47.240
  • WASN'T VALUABLE ENOUGH
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:49.100
  • TO KEEP ON LIVING AND THEN --
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:51.180
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:03:51.180 --> 00:03:52.060
  • - -- WHAT CHANGED FOR YOU
  • 00:03:52.060 --> 00:03:53.060
  • WHEN YOU DID BECOME
  • 00:03:53.060 --> 00:03:53.240
  • A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:54.090
  • - WELL, ACTUALLY,
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:54.230
  • FOR MANY, MANY YEARS --
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.010
  • MY WIFE'S IN THE AUDIENCE
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:57.050
  • HERE TOO, SHE WOULD LET --
  • 00:03:57.050 --> 00:03:59.140
  • TELL YOU THAT
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:00.200
  • I NEVER WANTED TO TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:02.180
  • YOU KNOW, IN A CULTURE
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:04.000
  • OF SHAME TO FAIL AT THAT
  • 00:04:04.000 --> 00:04:06.170
  • WAS A DISASTROUS THING
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:09.030
  • ALTHOUGH A FEW OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:04:09.030 --> 00:04:10.170
  • SUCCEEDED AND I HAD
  • 00:04:10.170 --> 00:04:12.030
  • WANTED TO GO.
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:12.270
  • BUT MY REASON WAS NOT ANY KIND
  • 00:04:12.270 --> 00:04:15.130
  • OF ABERRANT PSYCHE
  • 00:04:15.130 --> 00:04:16.280
  • OR WHATEVER IT WAS.
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:18.140
  • I WASN'T DOING WELL
  • 00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:19.230
  • IN MY STUDIES.
  • 00:04:19.230 --> 00:04:20.290
  • I WASN'T WORKING HARD
  • 00:04:20.290 --> 00:04:21.290
  • AT MY STUDIES IN DISTINCTION
  • 00:04:21.290 --> 00:04:24.130
  • TO MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:25.280
  • AND MY FRIENDS.
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.220
  • I REALLY LOVED
  • 00:04:27.220 --> 00:04:28.210
  • THE SPORTING FIELD
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:30.170
  • TO THE CORE.
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.290
  • YOU PUT A CRICKET BAT
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.040
  • IN MY HAND OR A CRICKET BALL
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.220
  • IN MY HAND AND THAT'S ALL
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:35.290
  • I REALLY WANTED TO LIVE FOR.
  • 00:04:35.290 --> 00:04:38.050
  • THE STRANGE THING IS
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:39.060
  • AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:39.210
  • CRICKET WASN'T
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:40.290
  • A PROFESSIONAL SPORT.
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:42.280
  • THERE WERE NO SUCH THINGS
  • 00:04:42.280 --> 00:04:43.170
  • AS PROFESSIONAL CRICKETERS.
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:45.120
  • YOU WORKED AT ANOTHER PROFESSION
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:47.050
  • AND WHEN THE INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:48.060
  • MATCHES CAME,
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.080
  • THEY WOULD SELECT IT SOMEBODY
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:50.140
  • FROM THE RAILWAYS
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:51.140
  • OR THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:52.100
  • OR A TEACHER OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:04:52.100 --> 00:04:53.260
  • THEY WOULD TAKE THE BEST
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:54.140
  • OF THE PLAYERS
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:55.160
  • AND THEY WOULD PLAY ENGLAND
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:56.080
  • OR NEW ZEALAND
  • 00:04:56.080 --> 00:04:57.010
  • OR PAKISTAN OR THE WEST INDIES,
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:59.040
  • AUSTRALIA.
  • 00:04:59.040 --> 00:04:59.230
  • THEY WERE THE BIGGEST TEAMS
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:00.250
  • IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:02.020
  • BUT BECAUSE I WAS SO FOCUSED
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.220
  • ON PLAYING CRICKET,
  • 00:05:03.220 --> 00:05:05.220
  • I WAS NEGLECTING MY STUDIES.
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:07.170
  • AND WHEN MY DAD LOOKED ME
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:08.280
  • IN THE EYE AND MADE
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:10.000
  • THE COMMENT ONE DAY
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:10.240
  • I'M GONNA BRING SUCH SHAME
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.000
  • TO OUR FAMILY
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:13.150
  • AND MY DAD WAS
  • 00:05:13.150 --> 00:05:14.100
  • A VERY SUCCESSFUL MAN.
  • 00:05:14.100 --> 00:05:16.070
  • I THINK HE WAS TRYING
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:17.110
  • TO WAKEN ME UP
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:19.040
  • OUT OF MY LETHARGY.
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:20.020
  • I DON'T THINK HE INTENDED
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:21.080
  • TO BE MEAN ALTHOUGH
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:22.140
  • HE'S A PRETTY VICIOUS TEMPERED
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:24.080
  • MAN WHEN HE LOST IT.
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:26.020
  • THAT TOLD ME
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:28.100
  • I WAS PERSONA NON GRATA
  • 00:05:28.100 --> 00:05:29.280
  • IN THE FAMILY,
  • 00:05:29.280 --> 00:05:31.050
  • THAT I WAS NOT THE KIND OF SON
  • 00:05:31.050 --> 00:05:32.240
  • HE REALLY WANTED TO HAVE.
  • 00:05:32.240 --> 00:05:34.180
  • SO THAT TOOK ME
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:35.210
  • ON THE PATH OF SUICIDE
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:37.190
  • AND IT IS AMAZING TO ME
  • 00:05:37.190 --> 00:05:40.080
  • THAT GOD PROTECTED ME,
  • 00:05:40.080 --> 00:05:41.190
  • BUT NOT ONLY PROTECTED ME,
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:43.230
  • RESCUED ME FROM THE VERY REASON
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:46.200
  • THAT DROVE ME TO THAT BED.
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.110
  • THAT'S THE AMAZING INTERVENTION
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:51.090
  • OF DIVINE GRACE AND DIVINE
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:53.020
  • PROVIDENCE FOR MY NEEDS.
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:55.130
  • SO THERE I WAS AT THE AGE OF 17
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:57.170
  • AND NEVER LOOKED BACK
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:06:00.270
  • FROM THAT DAY TILL THIS.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.090
  • I HAVE NEVER EVEN DOUBTED
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:05.140
  • MY CALLING BEFORE JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:06:05.140 --> 00:06:08.030
  • BECAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:06:08.030 --> 00:06:09.070
  • I NEVER SOUGHT HIM,
  • 00:06:09.070 --> 00:06:10.090
  • BUT HE PURSUED ME.
  • 00:06:10.090 --> 00:06:11.280
  • I NEVER THOUGHT OF HIM,
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:12.190
  • BUT HE THOUGHT OF ME.
  • 00:06:12.190 --> 00:06:14.020
  • I NEVER THOUGHT OF SALVATION,
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:15.200
  • BUT HE KNEW
  • 00:06:15.200 --> 00:06:16.020
  • THAT'S WHAT I NEEDED.
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.140
  • SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:18.140
  • ON THAT BED OF SUICIDE
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:20.110
  • - I THINK WE SEE
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:23.000
  • THE CONSISTENCY OF THAT
  • 00:06:23.000 --> 00:06:24.020
  • LIVED OUT IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.020
  • FROM AFTER YOU COMMENTED
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:27.050
  • IN THAT MOMENT SAYING,
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:27.250
  • YOU KNOW, "LORD,
  • 00:06:27.250 --> 00:06:28.210
  • IF YOU COME INTO MY LIFE,
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:29.200
  • I BELIEVE NO STONE UNTURNED
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:31.120
  • IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH AND --
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.190
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:32.280
  • - -- HOW MANY DECADES LATER
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:33.240
  • THAT HAS STAYED TRUE.
  • 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:34.290
  • IT'S TRUE OF YOU.
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:35.280
  • I IMAGINE IT WAS QUITE A SHOCK
  • 00:06:35.280 --> 00:06:37.150
  • THEN WHEN YOU MOVED TO CANADA
  • 00:06:37.150 --> 00:06:39.170
  • EARLY IN YOUR 20S --
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:41.020
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:41.220
  • - -- AND THIS SORT OF CLASH
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:42.220
  • OF CULTURAL VALUES
  • 00:06:42.220 --> 00:06:43.180
  • YOU EXPERIENCED THEN.
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:44.150
  • HOW WOULD YOU SAY THE WEST
  • 00:06:44.150 --> 00:06:45.200
  • IMMEDIATELY STRUCK YOU
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:46.220
  • AS DIFFERENT IN ITS VALUES
  • 00:06:46.220 --> 00:06:48.160
  • FROM THE EAST?
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:49.160
  • - THE WEST OF THEN
  • 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:50.240
  • IS VERY DIFFERENT
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:51.150
  • TO THE WEST OF NOW, SADLY.
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:54.190
  • I THINK THERE WAS
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:55.060
  • SOME VALUE STRUCTURES.
  • 00:06:55.060 --> 00:06:56.190
  • THERE WAS SOME FRAMEWORKS
  • 00:06:56.190 --> 00:06:59.080
  • WITHIN WHICH YOU COULD
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:00.110
  • OPERATE IN THE ETHICAL REALM.
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:02.210
  • I WAS IN
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:03.120
  • THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY.
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.180
  • I WAS 20 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:05.260
  • MY BROTHER, OLDER BROTHER,
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:06.260
  • [INDISCERNIBLE], WAS 22,
  • 00:07:06.260 --> 00:07:08.120
  • AND WE MOVED OVER.
  • 00:07:08.120 --> 00:07:10.270
  • HE GOT A JOB IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:12.120
  • WITH IBM AND WORKED WITH THEM
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:14.110
  • MANY YEARS TILL HE STARTED
  • 00:07:14.110 --> 00:07:15.180
  • HIS OWN BUSINESS
  • 00:07:15.180 --> 00:07:16.290
  • NOW LONG RETIRED.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:18.220
  • BUT I WENT INTO
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:21.000
  • THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY,
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:22.270
  • BUT I KNEW THE HUNGER
  • 00:07:22.270 --> 00:07:23.190
  • IN MY HEART.
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:24.240
  • THINGS HAD CHANGED
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:26.050
  • BY THE TIME I HAD REACHED THERE
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:28.080
  • AND I WONDERED IF THIS
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:29.150
  • IS WHAT I --
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:30.070
  • I WANTED TO DO BUSINESS.
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:31.130
  • I'M NOT SURE I WAS QUALIFIED,
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:32.220
  • BUT THAT'S REALLY
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:33.060
  • WHAT I WANTED TO DO.
  • 00:07:33.060 --> 00:07:34.200
  • AND SO DURING THE --
  • 00:07:34.200 --> 00:07:35.230
  • I GOT A JOB WORKING NIGHTS
  • 00:07:35.230 --> 00:07:38.140
  • ABOUT 6 P.M. TILL 3 A.M.
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:40.280
  • IN THE MORNING
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.040
  • AND SO THAT I COULD
  • 00:07:42.040 --> 00:07:42.220
  • GO TO SCHOOL
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:43.150
  • DURING THE DAY
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:44.150
  • AND PAY MY WAY THROUGH
  • 00:07:44.150 --> 00:07:45.080
  • SOME THEOLOGICAL TRAINING.
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:47.100
  • MY DAD HAD NO IDEA
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:48.160
  • I WAS INTO THIS.
  • 00:07:48.160 --> 00:07:49.170
  • MY BROTHER WONDERED
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:50.070
  • WHAT ON EARTH WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:52.000
  • I STARTED ATTENDING
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:52.270
  • A THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL,
  • 00:07:52.270 --> 00:07:54.210
  • JUST FELL IN LOVE
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:55.230
  • WITH THE SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:56.210
  • FELL IN LOVE
  • 00:07:56.210 --> 00:07:57.180
  • WITH GREAT THEOLOGICAL THOUGHTS
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.200
  • AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION
  • 00:07:59.200 --> 00:08:01.050
  • AND ALL.
  • 00:08:01.050 --> 00:08:02.050
  • THAT BEGAN MY PATH
  • 00:08:02.050 --> 00:08:03.250
  • AND THEN FINALLY IN '68,
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:06.080
  • TWO YEARS AFTER WE ARRIVED,
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:07.260
  • I FORMALLY LET GO OF THAT
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:09.200
  • OTHER CAREER AND WENT INTO
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:10.280
  • THEOLOGICAL TRAINING
  • 00:08:10.280 --> 00:08:11.250
  • IN TORONTO.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:12.200
  • - AND RAVI'S LIFE REALLY
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:14.080
  • IS AN INCREDIBLE STORY.
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:15.070
  • IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:15.230
  • THE CHANCE TO READ,
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:16.120
  • "WALKING FROM EAST TO WEST",
  • 00:08:16.120 --> 00:08:17.160
  • IT'S A REALLY PHENOMENAL BOOK,
  • 00:08:17.160 --> 00:08:19.000
  • WHICH WILL GIVE YOU MUCH
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:20.020
  • MORE DETAIL THAN WE HAVE
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:20.270
  • TIME FOR TONIGHT.
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.210
  • ONE LAST QUESTION FOR YOU, RAVI.
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:23.040
  • NOW, YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:24.090
  • FOR AROUND FIVE DECADES
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:26.010
  • AND YOU HAVE SOME
  • 00:08:26.010 --> 00:08:27.020
  • INCREDIBLE GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:28.210
  • THAT YOU'RE A GRANDFATHER TO.
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:29.270
  • AND YOU ALSO LEAD A TEAM
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:31.090
  • OF YOUNG EVANGELISTS
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:32.150
  • AS WELL ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE.
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:34.040
  • AND WOULD YOU SAY
  • 00:08:34.040 --> 00:08:35.030
  • THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:36.020
  • YOU'VE COME TO VALUE
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.040
  • IN THIS STAGE OF LIFE
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:38.030
  • - MANY THINGS.
  • 00:08:40.220 --> 00:08:42.230
  • THE GIFT OF A VOICE.
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:44.090
  • YOU TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:45.250
  • YOU NEVER KNOW WHETHER
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:46.210
  • YOU'LL HAVE IT.
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:48.260
  • AND FOR THE BACK
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:49.120
  • THAT HAS HAD TWO MAJOR SURGERIES
  • 00:08:49.120 --> 00:08:51.130
  • AND STRUGGLES ON THE ROAD.
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:54.170
  • I'M JUST GRATEFUL
  • 00:08:54.170 --> 00:08:55.270
  • FOR THE STRENGTH OF GOD
  • 00:08:55.270 --> 00:08:57.260
  • ALL THE WAY.
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:08:59.190
  • BUT IF I WERE TO NARROW
  • 00:08:59.190 --> 00:09:00.250
  • THEM DOWN TO THREE
  • 00:09:00.250 --> 00:09:01.290
  • OR FOUR THINGS,
  • 00:09:01.290 --> 00:09:03.120
  • IT WOULD BE MY WIFE
  • 00:09:04.100 --> 00:09:07.100
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:10.020
  • - BECAUSE I WOULD NEVER --
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:11.210
  • MARGIE IS HERE SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:14.100
  • I WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE
  • 00:09:14.100 --> 00:09:15.120
  • TO DO WHAT I DID
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:17.000
  • IF I HAD NOT SOMEBODY
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:19.050
  • WHO WAS TWICE AS DEDICATED
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:21.110
  • AS I AM BECAUSE
  • 00:09:21.110 --> 00:09:23.260
  • HER CALLING IS
  • 00:09:23.260 --> 00:09:25.260
  • OF GREATER SACRIFICE
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.240
  • THAN MINE IS.
  • 00:09:27.240 --> 00:09:29.030
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:09:29.030 --> 00:09:29.180
  • ON THE ROAD,
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:31.010
  • YOU'RE FACING THE HEADWINDS
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.170
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:33.240
  • THE ADRENALINE IS BEING PUMPED.
  • 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:35.170
  • YOU'RE FACING THE AUDIENCE.
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:36.270
  • YOU'RE STUDYING,
  • 00:09:36.270 --> 00:09:37.200
  • YOU'RE PREPARING,
  • 00:09:37.200 --> 00:09:38.130
  • AND YOU'RE ACTUALLY GETTING
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:39.120
  • TO SEE A BETTER PART
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.250
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:41.290
  • BUT MARGIE WAS AT HOME
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:43.050
  • RAISING THE KIDS
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:44.100
  • AND NEVER COMPLAINED.
  • 00:09:44.100 --> 00:09:45.070
  • THE ONLY TIME SHE COMPLAINED
  • 00:09:45.070 --> 00:09:46.210
  • WAS IF I WAS DOING IT
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:48.190
  • FOR REASONS OTHER THAN
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:49.250
  • JUST GOING TO PREACH,
  • 00:09:49.250 --> 00:09:51.020
  • WHICH I REALLY
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:51.240
  • DIDN'T DO MUCH OF.
  • 00:09:51.240 --> 00:09:53.250
  • I NEVER HELD A GOLF CLUB
  • 00:09:53.250 --> 00:09:54.240
  • IN MY HANDS.
  • 00:09:54.240 --> 00:09:55.130
  • I LOVE TENNIS,
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:56.230
  • BUT I HAD TO GIVE THAT UP
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.170
  • WHEN I ENDED UP
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:09:59.130
  • WITH A BROKEN BACK.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:00.270
  • SO IF IT'S JUST
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:02.250
  • FOR THE WHIMSICAL THING
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:04.020
  • I DID A TRIP, THEN SHE SAYS,
  • 00:10:04.020 --> 00:10:05.210
  • "WHERE'RE YOU --
  • 00:10:05.210 --> 00:10:06.080
  • WHAT DO YOU NEED THIS FOR?
  • 00:10:06.080 --> 00:10:07.070
  • YOU ALREADY --
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:08.000
  • YOU'RE TRAVELING QUITE A BIT."
  • 00:10:08.000 --> 00:10:09.140
  • SO ALL OF MY BUDDIES HERE,
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:10.190
  • BEWARE WHEN YOU ASK ME OUT
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:12.100
  • TO JUST GO AND HAVE
  • 00:10:12.100 --> 00:10:13.130
  • A GOOD TIME SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:10:13.130 --> 00:10:14.090
  • SO MY WIFE AND THEN
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:15.090
  • THE SACRIFICE OF MY KIDS.
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:17.190
  • YOU KNOW, THEY LIVE
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:18.220
  • IN A GLASSHOUSE.
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:20.190
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PUBLIC EYE,
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:22.220
  • YOU GET IT.
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:23.290
  • BUT I MADE THE COMMITMENT
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:25.000
  • LONG BEFORE THAT I KNEW
  • 00:10:25.000 --> 00:10:27.060
  • SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 00:10:27.060 --> 00:10:28.010
  • THAT WOULD TAKE PLACE
  • 00:10:28.010 --> 00:10:29.170
  • AND I WAS COMMITTED TO CHRIST.
  • 00:10:29.170 --> 00:10:31.160
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS I LEARNED
  • 00:10:31.160 --> 00:10:32.130
  • FROM BILLY GRAHAM
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:33.070
  • WAS STAY FOCUSED ON HIM
  • 00:10:33.070 --> 00:10:35.210
  • AND LET THE CHIPS
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:36.240
  • FALL WHERE THEY MAY.
  • 00:10:36.240 --> 00:10:38.150
  • SO GRATEFUL FOR THE PRIVILEGE,
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:41.050
  • MY FAMILY,
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:42.050
  • AND FOR GREAT MENTORS
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:44.080
  • WHO HAVE --
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.070
  • MY PROFESSOR WHOM I JUST BURIED.
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:47.210
  • I SPOKE AT HIS FUNERAL,
  • 00:10:47.210 --> 00:10:48.150
  • NORMAN GEISLER.
  • 00:10:48.150 --> 00:10:50.110
  • UNBELIEVABLE THAT A MAN
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:52.230
  • OF HIS EXTRAORDINARY
  • 00:10:52.230 --> 00:10:54.170
  • INTELLECTUAL DEPTH
  • 00:10:54.170 --> 00:10:56.130
  • TOOK A LIKING FOR ME.
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:58.090
  • I KNOW I DON'T BELONG
  • 00:10:58.090 --> 00:10:59.080
  • ON THE SAME PLATFORM WITH HIM,
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:01.100
  • BUT THAT HE POURED HIMSELF
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:03.020
  • INTO ME PERSONALLY.
  • 00:11:03.020 --> 00:11:04.280
  • THIS IS ALL OF GOD.
  • 00:11:04.280 --> 00:11:06.170
  • AND NOW WORKING
  • 00:11:06.170 --> 00:11:07.050

  • TO WORK ALONGSIDE.
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.010
  • A VERY DEVOTED TEAM.
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.170
  • I LEARN A LOT
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:14.170
  • FROM EVERYBODY
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:15.210
  • TRAVELING AROUND.
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:16.250

  • THE TOP VOTE-GETTING
  • 00:12:58.210 --> 00:13:00.190
  • QUESTION ONLINE.
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:02.220
  • SO PEOPLE VOTED
  • 00:13:02.220 --> 00:13:03.260
  • FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:05.050
  • AND THIS IS THE TOP QUESTION
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:07.020
  • AT THE MOMENT, RAVI.
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:09.030
  • IT SAYS, "EVEN IF MORAL VALUES
  • 00:13:09.030 --> 00:13:11.280
  • ARE INDEED
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.010
  • OBJECTIVE AND KNOWABLE,
  • 00:13:13.010 --> 00:13:15.000
  • PEOPLE STILL DISAGREE.
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:17.010
  • HOW DO WE KNOW WHICH VALUE
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:18.250
  • SHOULD APPLY TO EVERYONE
  • 00:13:18.250 --> 00:13:20.230
  • AND BE ENFORCED BY LAW?
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:23.030
  • IS IT JUST,
  • 00:13:23.030 --> 00:13:23.220
  • - THE LAST PART IS IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:13:28.100 --> 00:13:31.100
  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:32.070
  • A MORAL FRAMEWORK
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:33.120
  • AND NOT OFFEND SOMEBODY.
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:35.160
  • BUT THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:36.270
  • IN A PLURALISTIC SOCIETY.
  • 00:13:36.270 --> 00:13:39.050
  • AND THIS IS WHAT I THINK
  • 00:13:39.050 --> 00:13:41.020
  • AS A NATION WE HAVE
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:43.010
  • TO COME TO TERMS WITH.
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:45.030
  • AND THAT IS THIS:
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:47.020
  • WHAT FORMED THE ROOTS
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:50.190
  • OF THIS NATION?
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.010
  • SO LET ME TALK
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:52.210
  • APPROXIMATELY FIRST
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.030
  • AND THEN WE CAN EXPAND ON THAT.
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:56.050
  • IF YOU LOOK AT ROOTS,
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:57.230
  • TRUNK, AND BRANCHES.
  • 00:13:57.230 --> 00:14:00.020
  • WHAT FORMS THE ROOTS?
  • 00:14:00.020 --> 00:14:01.140
  • WHAT FORMS THE TRUNK?
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:02.180
  • WHAT FORMS THE BRANCHES?
  • 00:14:02.180 --> 00:14:04.080
  • THE ROOTS ARE THE SOURCE
  • 00:14:04.080 --> 00:14:07.060
  • OF OUR VALUES,
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:08.090
  • WHAT WE ARE ANCHORED IN.
  • 00:14:08.090 --> 00:14:09.230
  • SO WHEN YOU GO BACK
  • 00:14:09.230 --> 00:14:11.010
  • EVEN TO THE DECLARATION
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:11.290
  • OF INDEPENDENCE
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:13.120
  • AND IT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:14:13.120 --> 00:14:14.260
  • THE TRUTHS BEING SELF-EVIDENT
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:17.130
  • THAT WE'RE ALL CREATED EQUAL
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:20.010
  • ENDOWED BY OUR CREATOR
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:21.120
  • WITH UNALIENABLE RIGHTS,
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:23.030
  • DO YOU KNOW NO OTHER WORLDVIEW
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:25.180
  • WOULD HAVE DONE THAT?
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:27.060
  • MUSLIMS WOULD NEVER
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:27.270
  • HAVE SAID THAT.
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:29.250
  • PANTHEIST WOULD NEVER HAVE
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:31.090
  • SAID THAT TO PURSUE HAPPINESS
  • 00:14:31.090 --> 00:14:32.280
  • AND LIBERTY COMING FROM
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:34.290
  • SOME OF THE OTHER FRAMEWORKS
  • 00:14:34.290 --> 00:14:37.100
  • AND THE IDEA OF
  • 00:14:37.100 --> 00:14:38.120
  • ALL CREATED EQUAL
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.220
  • WITHIN THE KARMIC SYSTEM,
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:41.010
  • WE ARE NOT EQUAL.
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:42.140
  • WE ARE BORN AT DIFFERENT LEVELS
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:44.020
  • AT A DIFFERENT
  • 00:14:44.020 --> 00:14:44.130
  • STRATIFIED SOCIETY.
  • 00:14:44.130 --> 00:14:46.080
  • BUT A NATURALIST
  • 00:14:46.080 --> 00:14:47.100
  • WOULD NOT HAVE SAID THAT.
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:48.110
  • A NATURALIST WOULD NOT HAVE SAID
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:49.140
  • ENDOWED BY OUR CREATOR.
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:51.080
  • WE ARE OBVIOUSLY TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:52.220
  • A TRANSCENDENT SOURCE.
  • 00:14:52.220 --> 00:14:55.210
  • IN HIS BOOK, RUSSELL KIRK,
  • 00:14:55.240 --> 00:14:58.240
  • "THE ROOTS OF AMERICAN ORDER",
  • 00:14:58.240 --> 00:15:00.190
  • HE GIVES THREE CITIES
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.010
  • TO WHICH AMERICA IS INDEBTED,
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:04.050
  • ROME, ATHENS, AND JERUSALEM.
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:06.280
  • ROME GAVE TO US
  • 00:15:06.280 --> 00:15:07.290
  • OUR LEGAL CATEGORIES.
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:09.160
  • ATHENS GAVE TO US
  • 00:15:09.160 --> 00:15:10.200
  • OUR PHILOSOPHICAL CATEGORIES.
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:12.120
  • AND JERUSALEM GAVE TO US
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:13.240
  • OUR MORAL CATEGORIES.
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:15.070
  • AND RUSSELL KIRK REMINDS US
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:17.030
  • THAT THE LEGAL
  • 00:15:17.030 --> 00:15:18.090
  • AND THE PHILOSOPHICAL
  • 00:15:18.090 --> 00:15:19.210
  • WILL GO INTO DISARRAY
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:21.120
  • IF WE LOSE THE MORAL.
  • 00:15:21.120 --> 00:15:23.000
  • AND THAT'S THE ONE,
  • 00:15:23.000 --> 00:15:23.260
  • WHICH WE HAVE ACTUALLY FORGOTTEN
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.120
  • WHAT WE OWE AS
  • 00:15:25.120 --> 00:15:26.250
  • A DEBT TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:28.200
  • SO WE HAVE TO START BY KNOWING
  • 00:15:28.200 --> 00:15:30.220
  • OUR ROOTS HAVE TO HOLD
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.170
  • AND THE MOMENT
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:33.170
  • WE ALLOW PLURALISM,
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:36.000
  • WHICH IS A LEGITIMATE PURSUIT
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:38.150
  • IN ANY CULTURE BY THE WAY.
  • 00:15:38.150 --> 00:15:40.110
  • THIS WAS NOT MY HOME CULTURE.
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:42.280
  • I CAME TO THIS COUNTRY
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:44.170
  • FROM A COMPLETELY
  • 00:15:44.170 --> 00:15:45.140
  • DIFFERENT CULTURE,
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:46.210
  • BUT ONE OF THE REASONS
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:47.240
  • THAT DREW ME HERE
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:49.130
  • WAS THE ROOTS,
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:50.270
  • THE VALUE SYSTEM.
  • 00:15:50.270 --> 00:15:52.110
  • I WANTED TO TAKE THE VERY VALUES
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:54.270
  • THAT HAD BEEN ENSHRINED HERE.
  • 00:15:54.270 --> 00:15:57.030
  • THE TRUNK IS
  • 00:15:57.030 --> 00:15:58.190
  • THE POLITICAL PROCESS
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:15:59.220
  • AND THE BRANCHES
  • 00:15:59.220 --> 00:16:00.230
  • ARE HOW IT WORKS OUT
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:01.250
  • IN CULTURE.
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:02.240
  • WHY ARE THE BRANCHES IN DISARRAY
  • 00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:05.000
  • AND THE TRUNKS ARE SHATTERED?
  • 00:16:05.000 --> 00:16:06.110
  • BECAUSE WE'VE
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:06.240
  • FORGOTTEN THE ROOTS.
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:08.170
  • SEE, IF PLURALISM IS TAKEN
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:10.170
  • TO MEAN RELATIVISM,
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:12.040
  • THEN ABSOLUTES ARE GONE
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:13.220
  • AND ALL VALUES ARE EQUALLY FALSE
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:16.040
  • OR EQUALLY TRUE.
  • 00:16:16.040 --> 00:16:17.060
  • THEY ACTUALLY HAVE NO --
  • 00:16:17.060 --> 00:16:18.220
  • NOTHING TO HOLD.
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:20.080
  • IT IS THE ROOTS THAT GIVE US
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:22.150
  • THAT WHICH HAS TO BE ENDURING.
  • 00:16:22.150 --> 00:16:24.260
  • SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:26.290
  • THE STURDY, STEADY,
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.210
  • GROWING TREE
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:29.200
  • AS A CULTURE OR FORM,
  • 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:31.100
  • WE HAVE TO REMEMBER
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:32.180
  • WHAT OUR ROOTS ARE.
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:34.020
  • AND THE ROOTS WERE FRAMED,
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:36.000
  • THE FRAMING COULD
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:37.060
  • ONLY HAVE BEEN DONE --
  • 00:16:37.060 --> 00:16:38.150
  • I'M NOT SAYING THIS
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:39.030
  • WAS A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY.
  • 00:16:39.030 --> 00:16:40.230
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M SAYING.
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:42.190
  • BECAUSE WILL START DEBATING
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:43.250
  • THAT AD NAUSEAM
  • 00:16:43.250 --> 00:16:45.010
  • AND I'M NOT INTERESTED
  • 00:16:45.010 --> 00:16:45.250
  • IN THAT DEBATE.
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:46.260
  • WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT
  • 00:16:46.260 --> 00:16:48.030
  • WHAT I'M DEBATING IS
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.160
  • NO OTHER WORLDVIEW
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.120
  • OTHER THAN THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.200
  • WORLDVIEW WOULD HAVE MADE
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:54.070
  • A STATEMENT SUCH AS THAT.
  • 00:16:54.070 --> 00:16:56.250
  • CHECK IT OUT,
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:57.230
  • IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:16:58.200
  • FOR ANY OTHER WORLDVIEW.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:16:59.240
  • NOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IS
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:01.160
  • WE HAVE GONE AWAY
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:02.230
  • FROM BEING
  • 00:17:02.230 --> 00:17:03.080
  • ENDOWED BY OUR CREATOR
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:05.060
  • TO DEBUNKING THE CREATOR
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:07.070
  • AND MOCKING THE CREATOR
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:08.240
  • AND WE ACTUALLY THINK
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:09.290
  • WE CAN STILL
  • 00:17:09.290 --> 00:17:10.120
  • GIVE PEOPLE RIGHTS.
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:14.070
  • RIGHTS ARE BASED
  • 00:17:14.070 --> 00:17:15.220
  • ON WHAT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:19.010
  • RIGHTS ARE BASED
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:20.040
  • ON WHAT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:17:20.040 --> 00:17:21.090
  • IT IS RIGHT TO
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:22.100
  • GIVE PEOPLE RIGHTS.
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:24.000
  • IT IS RIGHT TO GIVE MINORITY
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:26.180
  • THE RIGHTS THEY WOULD NOT
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:27.110
  • OTHERWISE HAVE.
  • 00:17:27.110 --> 00:17:28.090
  • BUT ALL OF THESE ARE BASED UPON
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:30.080
  • A JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUATION
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:32.260
  • OF EVERY HUMAN BEING
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:35.200
  • HAVING GOT THAT,
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:36.160
  • GETTING THAT POSSIBILITY.
  • 00:17:36.160 --> 00:17:38.150
  • I WAS SPEAKING IN WASHINGTON
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:40.060
  • LAST WEEK
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:41.090
  • AND I WAS SITTING
  • 00:17:41.090 --> 00:17:42.180
  • NEXT TO A SENATOR.
  • 00:17:42.180 --> 00:17:44.040
  • I WON'T NAME THIS STATE
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:46.030
  • THAT HE REPRESENTED.
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:47.070
  • BUT AS WE WERE SITTING
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:48.040
  • AND TALKING AND SAID,
  • 00:17:48.040 --> 00:17:49.010
  • "YOU KNOW, I WAS RAISED
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:50.190
  • IN A HOME THAT
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:52.200
  • I NEVER MET MY FATHER
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:53.240
  • TILL THIS VERY DAY."
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:56.140
  • SAID I'VE NEVER SEEN MY DAD.
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.240
  • I WAS RAISED BY A SINGLE MOM
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:01.210
  • AND HE SAID
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:02.120
  • WE WERE IN GOVERNMENT HOUSING,
  • 00:18:02.120 --> 00:18:05.090
  • WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A HOME.
  • 00:18:05.090 --> 00:18:07.110
  • TODAY THIS MAN IS A SENATOR
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:09.270
  • IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:18:09.270 --> 00:18:11.230
  • LAST NIGHT,
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:12.290
  • MY WIFE AND I WENT OUT
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:15.120
  • TO SEE HOW I WOULD DO
  • 00:18:15.120 --> 00:18:17.010
  • OUT OF THE HOME
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:17.160
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:18:17.160 --> 00:18:18.140
  • IN 72 HOURS AND SO WE WENT
  • 00:18:18.140 --> 00:18:21.000
  • AND CRACKER BARREL
  • 00:18:21.000 --> 00:18:23.090
  • SO I GO WHEREVER
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:28.110
  • THEY ARE CELEBRATING.
  • 00:18:28.110 --> 00:18:29.110
  • OKAY?
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.060
  • SO WE HAD SOME WONDERFUL
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:31.290
  • SOUTHERN FRIED CHICKEN
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:33.080
  • AND STUFF.
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:34.110
  • AND MY WIFE, MARGIE,
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:35.270
  • WHO'S STANDING NEXT TO ME,
  • 00:18:35.270 --> 00:18:36.250
  • MY SISTER-IN-LAW, BARBARA,
  • 00:18:36.250 --> 00:18:38.210
  • WAS THERE AND WE WALK OUT
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:40.160
  • AND THESE TWO LADIES
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:41.210
  • SITTING ON THE ROCKING CHAIR,
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.260
  • THEY GO LIKE THIS
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:47.100
  • AND THEY POINTED.
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:50.040
  • SHE CAME UP TO ME
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:50.290
  • AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:18:50.290 --> 00:18:52.160
  • "ARE YOU RAVI ZACHARIAS?"
  • 00:18:52.260 --> 00:18:55.260
  • I SAID, "YES."
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:56.260
  • SHE STARTED SCREAMING --
  • 00:18:56.260 --> 00:18:57.170
  • [INDISCERNIBLE].
  • 00:18:57.170 --> 00:18:59.080
  • PEOPLE WERE PROBABLY WONDERING
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:00.120
  • WHAT ON EARTH
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:01.010
  • I WAS DOING TO HER.
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:01.240
  • WE WAS JUST CHATTING.
  • 00:19:01.240 --> 00:19:02.220
  • AND THEN SHE LOOKED
  • 00:19:02.220 --> 00:19:03.100
  • AT MARGIE AND SAID,
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:04.110
  • "YOU'RE MRS. ZACHARIAS?"
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:05.110
  • SAID, "YEAH."
  • 00:19:05.110 --> 00:19:06.050
  • SHE SAID, "I'M A BUS DRIVER.
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:09.260
  • I'M A BUS DRIVER.
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:12.150
  • I GO PAST YOUR OFFICE EVERY DAY.
  • 00:19:12.150 --> 00:19:15.030
  • I NEVER DREAMED THAT
  • 00:19:15.030 --> 00:19:16.010
  • I WOULD BE MEETING YOU SOMEDAY."
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:18.000
  • SHE SAID, "I WISH I KNEW
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:19.150
  • YOU WERE IN THERE,
  • 00:19:19.150 --> 00:19:20.030
  • I'D BOUGHT YOUR DINNER FOR YOU."
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:23.100
  • THERE'S A SENATOR,
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:24.270
  • HERE'S A BUS DRIVER.
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:27.060
  • WHAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:29.050
  • SO UNIQUE
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:30.130
  • THAT YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:32.270
  • TO MAKE A LIVING, TO SUCCEED,
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.080
  • AND FIND HAPPINESS
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:36.100
  • IN YOUR HEART?
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:37.060
  • AND IT IS THE DUTY
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:38.120
  • OF THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:19:38.120 --> 00:19:39.120
  • TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:41.100
  • THE LEAST AMONGST US
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:43.000
  • ARE TAKEN CARE OF, PROTECTED
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:44.140
  • ALL OF THAT I UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:46.240
  • BUT THAT COMES FROM THE ROOTS.
  • 00:19:46.240 --> 00:19:48.290
  • THE ROOTS ARE OUR VALUES
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:51.120
  • VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL.
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:54.130
  • SO, YES, WE WILL DISAGREE
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:56.210
  • BECAUSE EVEN IF
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:57.210
  • WE HAVE OBJECTIVE VALUES,
  • 00:19:57.210 --> 00:19:59.120
  • BUT OUR CULTURE
  • 00:19:59.120 --> 00:20:00.180
  • WILL NEVER SURVIVE
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:01.270
  • IF WE UPROOT
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:03.130
  • WHAT IT IS THAT BUILT THIS.
  • 00:20:03.130 --> 00:20:05.140
  • PLURALISM IS GOOD.
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:07.110
  • IF PLURALISM MEANS RELATIVISM,
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:09.190
  • - WONDERFUL.
  • 00:20:13.090 --> 00:20:14.250
  • I DO APPRECIATE YOUR PLURALISM
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:16.060
  • ABOUT FOOD THOUGH.
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:17.070
  • - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 00:20:17.070 --> 00:20:17.280
  • ME, TOO.
  • 00:20:17.280 --> 00:20:20.010
  • - WE HAVE A LIVE QUESTION.
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:21.090
  • GO AHEAD.
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:22.140
  • - YES, SIR.
  • 00:20:22.140 --> 00:20:22.280
  • - TELL US YOUR NAME
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:23.190
  • AS WELL, PLEASE.
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:24.170
  • - MY NAME IS DOUGLAS DE ROSA.
  • 00:20:24.170 --> 00:20:25.250
  • IT'S A PLEASURE
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:26.060
  • TO BE HERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:27.270
  • AND I'M ORIGINALLY FROM BRAZIL.
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:29.170
  • I'VE BEEN HERE IN THIS COUNTRY
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:30.160
  • FOR 18 YEARS.
  • 00:20:30.160 --> 00:20:32.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:20:32.180 --> 00:20:33.140
  • - MY QUESTION IS
  • 00:20:34.270 --> 00:20:37.270
  • HOW CAN US CHRISTIANS
  • 00:20:37.270 --> 00:20:40.240
  • CAN SHOW THE AMAZING
  • 00:20:40.240 --> 00:20:41.210
  • LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:20:41.210 --> 00:20:42.270
  • TO THE WORLD
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:45.050
  • AND AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:46.030
  • SHOWING THAT THE WORLD IS WRONG
  • 00:20:46.040 --> 00:20:49.040
  • ON SOME OF THEIR VALUES?
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:50.180
  • - AND THE SECOND PART
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:51.070
  • AGAIN, PLEASE, SIR?
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:52.270
  • - AND HOW CAN WE SHOW
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:53.240
  • TO THE WORLD --
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:54.230
  • - RIGHT, THE LOVE OF JESUS.
  • 00:20:54.230 --> 00:20:55.260
  • - -- THROUGH THE LOVE
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:20:56.140
  • OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:57.190
  • THAT THE WORLD
  • 00:20:57.190 --> 00:20:58.040
  • IS WRONG SOMETIMES?
  • 00:20:58.040 --> 00:20:59.110
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:20:59.110 --> 00:21:01.180
  • IT'S A VERY PRACTICAL QUESTION
  • 00:21:01.180 --> 00:21:03.260
  • AND A VERY REAL QUESTION
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:05.070
  • FROM THE SKEPTIC.
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:06.240
  • UNFORTUNATELY,
  • 00:21:06.240 --> 00:21:07.210
  • WE DON'T ALWAYS DO WELL,
  • 00:21:07.210 --> 00:21:10.030
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:21:10.030 --> 00:21:10.240
  • WHEN I -- WHEN YOU TRAVEL AROUND
  • 00:21:10.240 --> 00:21:13.110
  • AND YOU'RE A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:15.280
  • OF A PUBLIC PERSON
  • 00:21:15.280 --> 00:21:18.060
  • AND THINGS DON'T GO THE WAY
  • 00:21:18.060 --> 00:21:19.100
  • YOU WANTED THEM TO GO
  • 00:21:19.100 --> 00:21:20.190
  • AND YOU'RE STANDING IN LINE
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:22.060
  • OR BUYING AN AIRLINE TICKET
  • 00:21:22.060 --> 00:21:23.290
  • OR HAS SUDDENLY BEEN TOLD
  • 00:21:23.290 --> 00:21:25.280
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO SIT HERE
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:26.250
  • FOR FIVE MORE HOURS.
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:28.160
  • YOU KNOW, LAST WEEK
  • 00:21:28.160 --> 00:21:29.180
  • FROM WASHINGTON TO HALIFAX
  • 00:21:29.180 --> 00:21:31.010
  • TOOK US 27 HOURS TO GET THERE
  • 00:21:31.010 --> 00:21:33.060
  • 'CAUSE WE'RE SITTING IN AIRPORT
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:34.020
  • AFTER AIRPORT, AFTER AIRPORT.
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:36.080
  • AND THE TEMPTATION THEN
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:38.060
  • IS TO GET UPSET WITH THE PERSON
  • 00:21:38.060 --> 00:21:40.060
  • WHO'S GIVING YOU THIS NEWS
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:41.100
  • AS IF THEY HAD SOMETHING
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:42.140
  • TO DO WITH IT.
  • 00:21:42.140 --> 00:21:44.040
  • YOU HAVE TO CHECK YOURSELF
  • 00:21:44.040 --> 00:21:46.210
  • EVERY MOMENT, EVERY DAY,
  • 00:21:47.180 --> 00:21:50.180
  • AND LET THE AROMA OF CHRIST
  • 00:21:50.180 --> 00:21:52.180
  • BE SEEN IN WHAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.100
  • HOW YOU SAY IT.
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:55.250
  • AND NONE OF US WILL EVER
  • 00:21:55.250 --> 00:21:57.070
  • BE PERFECT SO I WANNA GIVE YOU
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:21:58.230
  • TWO ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM HERE.
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:01.100
  • WHEN JESUS CHOSE
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.170
  • THE LEADER OF THE CHURCH,
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:05.060
  • HE CHOSE ONE
  • 00:22:05.060 --> 00:22:06.130
  • WHO ACTUALLY DENIED HIM.
  • 00:22:07.020 --> 00:22:10.020
  • IT'S AMAZING TO ME.
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:12.170
  • THE ONE WHO SAID
  • 00:22:12.170 --> 00:22:13.200
  • I WOULD NEVER DENY YOU,
  • 00:22:13.200 --> 00:22:14.190
  • BUT DENIED HIM THREE TIMES.
  • 00:22:14.190 --> 00:22:16.280
  • AND JESUS SAID,
  • 00:22:16.280 --> 00:22:18.010
  • "UPON YOUR CONFESSION
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:18.290
  • UPON WHAT YOU SAID,
  • 00:22:18.290 --> 00:22:19.270
  • I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH."
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:21.120
  • HE TOOK THE WEAKEST AMONG THEM,
  • 00:22:21.120 --> 00:22:23.240
  • THE MOST TALKATIVE AMONG THEM,
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:25.240
  • WHO ALWAYS HAD A QUESTION
  • 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:27.120
  • FOR EVERY SITUATION
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:29.090
  • AND MADE HIM THE ROCK,
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:31.150
  • THAT CONFESSION, THE ROCK.
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:33.190
  • HE THOU ART THE CHRIST,
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:35.030
  • THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:22:35.030 --> 00:22:36.170
  • SO IN SPITE OF OUR FRAILTIES,
  • 00:22:36.170 --> 00:22:39.070
  • GOD SEES SOMETHING GOOD
  • 00:22:39.070 --> 00:22:41.030
  • THAT HE CAN DO IN US
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:42.250
  • AND THROUGH US.
  • 00:22:42.250 --> 00:22:44.050
  • THAT'S BEEN THERE
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:44.260
  • ACROSS HISTORY.
  • 00:22:44.260 --> 00:22:46.090
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST EARLY
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:47.110
  • APOLOGISTS WAS AUGUSTINE.
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:50.010
  • AUGUSTINE WAS
  • 00:22:50.010 --> 00:22:50.180
  • A CENTUALLY-DRIVEN MAN.
  • 00:22:50.210 --> 00:22:53.210
  • HE LIVED WITH CONSTANT LUSTING
  • 00:22:54.140 --> 00:22:57.140
  • AND YET GOD MADE HIM
  • 00:22:57.140 --> 00:22:59.130
  • THAT EARLY APOLOGIST
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:01.050
  • AND SO MUCH IS NOW DEPENDENT
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:03.230
  • ON SO MUCH HE WROTE
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:05.030
  • THE EARLY DAYS OF CHRISTENDOM.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:07.250
  • BUT IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:10.150
  • TO START WITH YOUR INNER LIFE.
  • 00:23:10.150 --> 00:23:12.200
  • SO MY QUESTION TO YOU
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:13.210
  • EACH MORNING WOULD BE,
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:15.210
  • HAVE YOU HAD YOUR TIME
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:16.120
  • WITH THE LORD TODAY?
  • 00:23:16.120 --> 00:23:18.050
  • THAT WOULD BE THE QUESTION
  • 00:23:18.050 --> 00:23:19.040
  • YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:20.230
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU START
  • 00:23:20.230 --> 00:23:21.260
  • THE DAY WITH HIM,
  • 00:23:21.260 --> 00:23:23.120
  • THE EYES SEE THE WORLD
  • 00:23:23.120 --> 00:23:25.260
  • THROUGH CONTACT WITH HIM.
  • 00:23:25.260 --> 00:23:28.040
  • WHEN YOU DON'T START
  • 00:23:28.040 --> 00:23:28.220
  • THE DAY WITH HIM,
  • 00:23:28.220 --> 00:23:30.020
  • YOU WILL END UP ACTUALLY
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:32.040
  • MAKING A MESS OF A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:23:32.040 --> 00:23:34.150
  • AND YOU'LL START SEEING HIM
  • 00:23:34.150 --> 00:23:36.000
  • THROUGH THE EYES OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:23:36.000 --> 00:23:37.220
  • SO YOU DISCIPLINE
  • 00:23:37.220 --> 00:23:38.240
  • YOUR OWN INNER LIFE.
  • 00:23:38.240 --> 00:23:40.070
  • SECONDLY, IT HAS TO
  • 00:23:40.070 --> 00:23:40.290
  • SPREAD TO YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:23:40.290 --> 00:23:43.010
  • HOW YOU HONOR THE MEMBERS
  • 00:23:43.010 --> 00:23:44.180
  • OF YOUR FAMILY,
  • 00:23:44.180 --> 00:23:45.230
  • HOW YOU TREAT THEM.
  • 00:23:45.230 --> 00:23:47.130
  • AND THEN EVEN TO THOSE
  • 00:23:47.130 --> 00:23:49.100
  • WHO HATE YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU,
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:51.160
  • NEVER RETURN IN KIND.
  • 00:23:51.160 --> 00:23:53.250
  • ALWAYS LOVE AND PRAY FOR THOSE
  • 00:23:54.120 --> 00:23:57.120
  • WHO MIGHT STAND AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:23:57.120 --> 00:23:59.010
  • MAYBE YOUR CO-WORKER
  • 00:23:59.010 --> 00:24:00.260
  • WHO MAKES FUN OF YOUR BELIEF.
  • 00:24:00.260 --> 00:24:02.230
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:24:02.230 --> 00:24:04.030
  • BUT THE DAY WILL COME
  • 00:24:04.030 --> 00:24:05.040
  • WHEN YOU'RE OFF THE MAP FOR HIM.
  • 00:24:05.040 --> 00:24:07.060
  • THAT PERSON WILL SAY,
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:08.280
  • "MR. DE ROSA
  • 00:24:08.280 --> 00:24:09.220
  • WHO WORKED NEXT TO ME
  • 00:24:09.220 --> 00:24:11.180
  • WAS THE FINEST MAN
  • 00:24:11.180 --> 00:24:12.190
  • WHO I EVER MET
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:14.110
  • IN ALL OF THE YEARS
  • 00:24:14.110 --> 00:24:15.140
  • THAT I WORKED."
  • 00:24:15.140 --> 00:24:16.130
  • BE A SHINING LIGHT
  • 00:24:16.130 --> 00:24:17.250
  • IN A DARK WORLD.
  • 00:24:17.250 --> 00:24:18.210
  • I'LL CLOSE WITH THIS.
  • 00:24:18.210 --> 00:24:20.110
  • WHEN I WAS IN CALIFORNIA
  • 00:24:20.110 --> 00:24:21.260
  • A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:24:21.260 --> 00:24:23.180
  • A COUPLE CAME UP TO ME
  • 00:24:23.180 --> 00:24:24.280
  • AND THEY SAID WE LIVE
  • 00:24:24.280 --> 00:24:26.090
  • IN A VERY DARK WORLD.
  • 00:24:26.090 --> 00:24:28.090
  • MY HUSBAND AND I,
  • 00:24:28.090 --> 00:24:29.260
  • WE WORK IN THE INDUSTRY

  • OF VIDEO GAMES.
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:34.120

  • SOMEWHERE WORK
  • 00:24:37.280 --> 00:24:38.230
  • IN THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY.
  • 00:24:38.230 --> 00:24:40.130
  • SHE SAYS IT'S A VERY DARK PLACE
  • 00:24:40.130 --> 00:24:42.050
  • AND THE TEARS
  • 00:24:42.050 --> 00:24:42.160
  • WERE RUNNING DOWN HER FACE.
  • 00:24:42.160 --> 00:24:44.140
  • SHE SAID WHAT YOU SPOKE TODAY,
  • 00:24:44.140 --> 00:24:46.180
  • I NEEDED TO HEAR.
  • 00:24:46.180 --> 00:24:48.130
  • AND I SAID IF GOD HAS PUT YOU
  • 00:24:48.130 --> 00:24:50.030
  • IN A DARK PLACE,
  • 00:24:50.030 --> 00:24:51.260
  • THE LIGHT SHOULD SHINE BRIGHTER
  • 00:24:51.260 --> 00:24:54.170

  • AND BE A BRIGHT LIGHT.
  • 00:25:00.130 --> 00:25:02.010
  • DON'T LOSE HOPE.
  • 00:25:02.010 --> 00:25:03.240
