  • - GOD IS SOVEREIGN
  • 00:00:38.160 --> 00:00:39.150
  • OVER HISTORY.
  • 00:00:39.150 --> 00:00:40.240
  • AND WHATEVER HAPPENS,
  • 00:00:40.240 --> 00:00:42.200
  • LET US WIN THIS GENERATION
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:44.100
  • AND PUT THEM INTO THE PLACES
  • 00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:45.290
  • WHERE THEY CAN REACH THEIR OWN,
  • 00:00:45.290 --> 00:00:47.250
  • AND LET US KNOW FOR A CERTAINTY,
  • 00:00:47.250 --> 00:00:49.210
  • THAT AS THEY REACH THEIR OWN
  • 00:00:49.210 --> 00:00:51.280
  • WE MUST FIND THE INVOLVEMENT
  • 00:00:52.030 --> 00:00:55.030
  • AND THE ENGAGEMENT.
  • 00:00:55.030 --> 00:00:56.230
  • LET US NOT BECOME CYNICAL
  • 00:00:56.230 --> 00:00:58.080
  • AND APATHETIC,
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:00:59.070
  • AND LEAVE THE WHIMS OF OTHERS
  • 00:00:59.070 --> 00:01:01.270
  • WHO TAKE THE PEOPLE ASTRAY
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:03.120
  • TO ANOTHER CALLING,
  • 00:01:03.120 --> 00:01:04.150
  • AND LET THEM LEAD
  • 00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:05.160
  • THE WHOLE NATION
  • 00:01:05.160 --> 00:01:06.130
  • IN WRONG DIRECTIONS.
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:08.000
  • WE CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.050
  • WE MUST BE INVOLVED.
  • 00:01:09.050 --> 00:01:10.110
  • PLACE OF HISTORY.
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:11.120
  • SECONDLY, IT'S THE PLACE
  • 00:01:11.120 --> 00:01:12.230
  • OF THE LEADER.
  • 00:01:12.230 --> 00:01:13.130
  • AND THE PLACE OF HISTORY
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:14.240
  • IS EFLUCTUATION;
  • 00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:15.270
  • IN THE PLACE OF THE LEADER
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:17.020
  • YOU SEE POLITICIZATION.
  • 00:01:17.020 --> 00:01:19.260
  • I FOUND OUT ONE THING,
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:22.010
  • THAT THOSE IN POLITICS
  • 00:01:22.010 --> 00:01:23.210
  • WHO STAY THE COURSE
  • 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:25.040
  • WITH A HIGH CHARACTER
  • 00:01:25.040 --> 00:01:27.020
  • ARE SO RARE
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:28.020
  • AND ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE
  • 00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:30.010
  • TO THE ONGOING FLOW
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:31.250
  • OF THE LEADERSHIP OF NATIONS.
  • 00:01:31.250 --> 00:01:33.240
  • THIS MAN IN ANGOLA PRISON,
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:35.240
  • BURL CAIN, WE'VE HAD LUNCH
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:37.180
  • WITH HIM.
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:39.020
  • TWO POLITICIANS CAME TO ATTEND
  • 00:01:39.020 --> 00:01:40.160
  • A CLOSING MEETING
  • 00:01:40.160 --> 00:01:41.170
  • THAT I WAS SPEAKING AT,
  • 00:01:41.170 --> 00:01:42.210
  • I WON'T EVEN NAME WHAT PARTIES
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:44.050
  • THEY WERE REPRESENTING.
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:45.190
  • BUT AS WE WERE WALKING AWAY,
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:46.290
  • WE WERE DRIVING
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:47.290
  • IN THE SAME CAR TOGETHER,
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:49.050
  • AND ONE OF THEM WAS
  • 00:01:49.050 --> 00:01:50.060
  • A PROMINENT SENATOR
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:51.030
  • IN THE STATE, LOOKED AT ME
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:52.200
  • AND HE SAID, "WE LOVE THIS GUY.
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:55.250
  • THE REASON WE'VE GOT HIM HERE
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:57.040
  • IS BECAUSE HE SAVED
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:58.120
  • A HELLISH PLACE IN OUR CITY,
  • 00:01:58.120 --> 00:02:00.200
  • AND WHAT HE HAS DONE HERE
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:01.260
  • IN THIS PRISON.
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:03.100
  • AND THESE TWO MEN,
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:04.140
  • ONE WAS THE MAYOR;
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:05.170
  • ONE WAS A SENATOR, MEN OF GOD,
  • 00:02:05.170 --> 00:02:07.280
  • BATTLING IT OUT IN
  • 00:02:07.280 --> 00:02:09.050
  • A TOUGH ARENA.
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:10.080
  • SOMETIME BACK I WAS SPEAKING
  • 00:02:10.080 --> 00:02:11.270
  • AT ONE OF THE OPENING SESSIONS
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:14.070
  • OF THE SENATE IN ONE STATE,
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:15.260
  • AND THE SENATOR WHO HOSTED US
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:17.220
  • TOOK US OUT FOR LUNCH
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:19.130
  • AFTERWARDS, CRIN WAS WITH ME
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:20.280
  • AT THAT TIME, WE WENT
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:22.050
  • AND HAD LUNCH TOGETHER.
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:23.010
  • AND HE WROTE ME
  • 00:02:23.010 --> 00:02:24.010
  • A BEAUTIFUL LETTER AFTER THAT,
  • 00:02:24.010 --> 00:02:25.150
  • AND I SENT IT TO MY ENTIRE BOARD
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:27.040
  • FOR THEM TO READ IT.
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:28.010
  • AND IN THAT HE POURS
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:29.290
  • HIS HEART OUT,
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:30.250
  • HOW FRUSTRATING IT GETS,
  • 00:02:30.250 --> 00:02:32.020
  • HOW LONELY IT GETS,
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:33.110
  • HOW DISCOURAGING IT GETS,
  • 00:02:33.110 --> 00:02:35.230
  • BUT THEY ARE THERE IN A PLACE
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:37.050
  • BECAUSE THEY NEED TO BE A LIGHT
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:39.060
  • IN A DARK WORLD.
  • 00:02:39.060 --> 00:02:41.000
  • I REMEMBER ONE MEMBER
  • 00:02:41.000 --> 00:02:42.120
  • OF PARLIAMENT IN OTTAWA,
  • 00:02:42.120 --> 00:02:43.140
  • I'VE TRIED TO ADDRESS
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:44.100
  • THEIR MEMBER, THEIR BREAKFAST,
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:45.260
  • TAKING US OUT AFTERWARDS
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.180
  • AND TALKING TO MARGI AND ME.
  • 00:02:47.180 --> 00:02:49.100
  • HE SAYS, "YOU'LL KNOW HOW
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:51.100
  • MANY TIMES I WANTED TO WALK AWAY
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:53.030
  • FROM THIS POSITION;
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:54.090
  • IT'S VERY HARD, VERY HARD
  • 00:02:54.090 --> 00:02:56.260
  • AND VERY LONELY."
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:02:58.100
  • HE SAID, "BUT I'M ONLY HERE
  • 00:02:58.100 --> 00:02:59.260
  • BECAUSE I'M CALLED IN MY NATION
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:01.180
  • TO SERVE GOD HERE,
  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:03.030
  • AND I WILL CONTINUE
  • 00:03:03.030 --> 00:03:04.040
  • TO REMAIN HERE."
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:05.130
  • ONE OF OUR PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS,
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:07.040
  • WHEN I WAS ALONE WITH HIM
  • 00:03:07.040 --> 00:03:08.240
  • BEFORE I WENT TO SPEAK
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:10.010
  • AT THE PRAYER BREAKFAST,
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:11.010
  • HE JUST SAID TO ME IN THAT ROOM
  • 00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:13.250
  • HOW DREADFULLY LONELY
  • 00:03:13.250 --> 00:03:16.140
  • LIFE HAD BECOME FOR HIM.
  • 00:03:16.140 --> 00:03:18.130
  • DREADFULLY LONELY,
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:19.280
  • BUT HE ELACERATED
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.090
  • FROM EVERY DIRECTION,
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.180
  • ATTACKED FROM EVERY DIRECTION,
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:24.000
  • AND IF YOUR CONSCIENCE
  • 00:03:24.000 --> 00:03:25.030
  • IS CALLING YOU
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:25.290
  • IN A CERTAIN DIRECTION,
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:26.220
  • RIGHT OR WRONG,
  • 00:03:26.220 --> 00:03:27.240
  • YOU MAKE THE BLUNDER,
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:28.290
  • OR YOU DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:31.020
  • THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS,
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:32.100
  • SOMEBODY WILL ALWAYS WANT
  • 00:03:32.100 --> 00:03:33.130
  • TO TAKE YOU TO TASK.
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:34.230
  • LEADERSHIP IS CRITICAL,
  • 00:03:34.230 --> 00:03:37.120
  • BUT I WANT TO POINT OUT
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:39.110
  • SOMETHING FOR YOU THAT IS
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:41.030
  • INDISPENSABLE IN LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:43.250
  • IN INDIA THERE IS
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:45.070
  • A VERY WELL-KNOWN FILM ACTOR,
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:47.140
  • HIS NAME IS SHAHRUKH KHAN,
  • 00:03:47.140 --> 00:03:49.010
  • THEY CALL HIM SRK.
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:50.040
  • HE'S ONE OF THESE
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:50.250
  • GOOD LOOKING GUYS,
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:51.190
  • AND EVERY ACTRESS' DREAM
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:53.120
  • IS TO BE COSTARRING
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:54.120
  • WITH SHAHRUKH KHAN.
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:55.120
  • HE'S THE BIG NAME THERE,
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:56.100
  • THEY ARE THE BOLLYWOOD ICONS.
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:57.280
  • I REMEMBER ONE YOUNG ACTRESS
  • 00:03:57.280 --> 00:03:59.150
  • I MET, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:03:59.150 --> 00:04:00.140
  • VERY HAPPY TO TELL ME
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:01.140
  • THAT SHE WAS ABOUT
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:02.240
  • TO BE STARRING IN A MOVIE
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:03.210
  • OPPOSITE SHAHRUKH KHAN;
  • 00:04:03.210 --> 00:04:05.000
  • IT DIDN'T MATTER ONE WIT TO ME
  • 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:06.280
  • BUT IT MEANT THE WORLD TO HER.
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.250
  • SHAHRUKH KHAN'S FAME HAS STARTED
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.120
  • TO PLUMMET AND HE'S BEHAVING
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:11.260
  • IN AN UNSEEMLY WAY
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:13.150
  • IN THE PUBLIC EYE,
  • 00:04:13.150 --> 00:04:14.240
  • AND ONLY AN INDIAN JOURNALIST
  • 00:04:14.240 --> 00:04:16.190
  • COULD HAVE WRITTEN AN ARTICLE
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:17.290
  • LIKE THIS.
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:19.020
  • LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAYS,
  • 00:04:19.020 --> 00:04:21.050
  • "SHAHRUKH KHAN AND THE CASE
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:23.080
  • OF THE IMPLODING STAR."
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:24.270
  • AND THE JOURNALIST IS CALLED
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:26.010
  • AVIROOK SEN, AND HE SAYS THIS,
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:28.070
  • "OUT THERE IN THE COSMOS STARS
  • 00:04:28.070 --> 00:04:30.180
  • THAT SHINE MUCH BRIGHTER
  • 00:04:30.180 --> 00:04:32.000
  • THAN THE SUN
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:32.280
  • DIES SPECTACULAR DEATHS
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:34.190
  • THAT ARE CAUSED
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:35.200
  • BY THE HEAVY HEARTS.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.270
  • THEIR CORE POSSESSES
  • 00:04:36.270 --> 00:04:38.130
  • SUCH A GREAT MASS,
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:39.190
  • THAT GRAVITY FUSES GASES
  • 00:04:39.190 --> 00:04:41.280
  • INTO INCREASINGLY
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:43.030
  • WEIGHTIER ELEMENTS.
  • 00:04:43.030 --> 00:04:44.100
  • SULFUR, MAGNESIUM, SILICON...
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:47.110
  • AND FINALLY IRON.
  • 00:04:47.110 --> 00:04:48.250
  • IRON OF THE CORE OF A STAR
  • 00:04:48.250 --> 00:04:50.260
  • MEANS DEATH FOR A STAR,
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.280
  • BECAUSE THE ENERGY CONSUMED
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:54.210
  • INFUSING THE ELEMENTS INTO IRON
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:56.280
  • IS GREATER THAN THE ENERGY
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.170
  • RELEASED DURING
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:04:59.280
  • THE FUSION PROCESS.
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:01.030
  • WITH NO ENERGY RADIATING
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:02.180
  • OUTWARDS THE GRAVITY OF IRON
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:04.250
  • AT ITS CENTRE RESULTS
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:06.220
  • IN THE REST OF THE STAR
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:07.220
  • COLLAPSING UPON ITSELF
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.110
  • AT TREMENDOUS VELOCITY."
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:11.080
  • AS ONE WEBSITE PUTS IT
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:12.270
  • IN ASTRONOMY, "THE STAR
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:14.080
  • STARTS CONSUMING ITSELF
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:16.220
  • FROM THE INSIDE OUT."
  • 00:05:16.220 --> 00:05:18.190
  • AND THE JOURNALIST SAYS THIS,
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:21.000
  • "ARE THESE THE KINDS
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:22.080
  • OF COSMIC FORCES THAT ARE
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:24.090
  • CAUSING THE IMPLOSION
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:25.220
  • OF BOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:26.230
  • SHAHRUKH KHAN?"
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:30.230
  • EGO, IRON AT THE CENTRE,
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:35.040
  • THE HEAVY SENSE OF WHO
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:37.230
  • YOU REALLY THINK YOU ARE.
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:45.260
  • I'VE OFTEN TALKED TO MY TEAM,
  • 00:05:45.260 --> 00:05:47.210
  • AND I SAY THIS TO THEM AGAIN
  • 00:05:47.210 --> 00:05:49.070
  • AS I SAY IT TO MYSELF,
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:51.090
  • IF IN ANY ONE MOMENT
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:53.160
  • ANY ONE OF US THINKS
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:55.290
  • WE'RE THE CAT'S WHISKERS,
  • 00:05:55.290 --> 00:05:58.090
  • AND THINKS WE'VE GOT
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:05:59.030
  • ALL THE INTELLECT GOING
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:00.050
  • AND ALL THE EDUCATION GOING,
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:01.180
  • AND WE'RE SOME PRETTY BIG DEAL,
  • 00:06:01.180 --> 00:06:03.200
  • THAT'S IRON AT THE CORE
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:05.170
  • BEGINNING TO BRING ABOUT
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:07.100
  • YOUR IMPLOSION.
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:10.160
  • HUMILITY IS THE HALLMARK,
  • 00:06:10.270 --> 00:06:13.270
  • IT IS THE HALLMARK
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.260
  • OF A GREAT LEADER,
  • 00:06:15.260 --> 00:06:17.150
  • WHO BEING IN THE FORM OF GOD
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:19.030
  • THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY
  • 00:06:19.030 --> 00:06:20.040
  • TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD,
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:21.070
  • BUT MADE HIMSELF
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:22.260
  • OF NO REPUTATION,
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:23.260
  • AND TOOK UPON HIMSELF
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:24.190
  • THE FORM OF A SERVANT.
  • 00:06:24.190 --> 00:06:26.000
  • BEING FOUND IN FASHION AS A MAN,
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.080
  • HE HUMBLED HIMSELF
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:28.150
  • AND BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH,
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:30.070
  • EVEN THE DEATH OF THE CROSS,
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.150
  • THEREFORE, GOD ALSO HAS
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:33.040
  • EXALTED HIM AND GIVEN TO HIM
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:35.050
  • A NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY NAME,
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:36.200
  • THAT AT THE NAME OF JESUS
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:37.190
  • EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:38.220
  • AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:39.220
  • THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:41.140
  • TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.
  • 00:06:41.140 --> 00:06:43.150
  • I HAVE BEEN IN THIS WORK
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:45.160
  • FOR 40 YEARS,
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:46.200
  • AND SOMETIMES WHEN I HAVE
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:48.000
  • STEPPED BEHIND THE PULPIT
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:49.170
  • WITH THE GREATEST SENSE
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:50.120
  • OF CERTAINTY THAT THE MESSAGE
  • 00:06:50.120 --> 00:06:51.210
  • IS WELL ORGANIZED
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:52.240
  • AND WELL OUTLINED,
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:54.070
  • I'VE MADE THE BIGGEST BLUNDERS
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:55.200
  • IN THOSE MESSAGES.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:58.020
  • AT OTHER TIMES WHERE
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:06:59.270
  • I'VE WALKED IN THERE TERRIFIED
  • 00:06:59.270 --> 00:07:01.200
  • THAT I DON'T HAVE THIS THING
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:02.210
  • TOGETHER AT ALL,
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:03.240
  • YOU WALK OUT AND YOU SAY
  • 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:05.160
  • TO YOURSELF GOD WAS THERE.
  • 00:07:05.160 --> 00:07:08.060
  • MICHAEL TOLD ME WHEN HE CAME
  • 00:07:08.060 --> 00:07:09.050
  • BACK FROM SPEAKING IN LISON,
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.200
  • HE FELT TOTALLY CONFUSED
  • 00:07:10.200 --> 00:07:12.220
  • WHILE HE WAS DELIVERING
  • 00:07:12.220 --> 00:07:13.190
  • HIS MESSAGE, HE GOT
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:15.110
  • HIS BEGINNING IN THE END
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:16.080
  • AND THE END IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:17.120
  • AND YOU KNOW, ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:18.170
  • THAT I'VE TRAVELED,
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:19.070
  • PEOPLE HAVE MENTIONED
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:20.090
  • THE MESSAGE TO ME,
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.070
  • HOW ANOINTED AND HOW RICH
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:22.160
  • AND HOW POWERFUL IT WAS,
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:24.000
  • AND THE RESPONSE
  • 00:07:24.000 --> 00:07:24.290
  • THAT HE ACTUALLY GOT FROM IT.
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:27.030
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET WHEN I WAS
  • 00:07:27.030 --> 00:07:29.130
  • IN MCGILL UNIVERSITY RECENTLY;
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:31.080
  • IT'S A LIBERAL UNIVERSITY
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:32.080
  • IN MONTREAL, CANADA.
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.120
  • I HAD JUST LITERALLY COME
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:35.000
  • FROM THE U.N. SPEAKING
  • 00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:37.020
  • THAT MORNING,
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:37.270
  • FLYING OUT THAT AFTERNOON,
  • 00:07:37.270 --> 00:07:38.270
  • DOING AN OPEN FORUM THAT NIGHT,
  • 00:07:38.270 --> 00:07:40.010
  • DOING A FACULTY LUNCH
  • 00:07:40.010 --> 00:07:41.090
  • ON THE NEXT DAY,
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:41.280
  • AND MY FINAL MESSAGE
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:43.020
  • ON WHY JESUS, TO THIS
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:44.160
  • PACKED AUDIENCE AT MCGILL,
  • 00:07:44.160 --> 00:07:46.120
  • I WALKED IN THERE
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:47.080
  • TOTALLY EXHAUSTED;
  • 00:07:47.080 --> 00:07:48.280
  • TOTALLY EXHAUSTED
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:50.150
  • JUST FROM FLYING
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:51.110
  • AND THE INTENSITY
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:53.040
  • OF JUST ONE U.N. ENGAGEMENT,
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:54.100
  • TRYING TO DO THIS.
  • 00:07:54.100 --> 00:07:55.040
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:07:55.040 --> 00:07:56.200
  • THAT AT HALF WAY THROUGH
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:57.230
  • THAT MESSAGE -- AFTER 40 YEARS
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:59.140
  • I CAN SAY THINGS LIKE THIS --
  • 00:07:59.140 --> 00:08:01.050
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:08:01.050 --> 00:08:02.190
  • I SENSED GOD SAYING TO ME
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:04.080
  • AT THAT MOMENT, "I'M WITH YOU.
  • 00:08:04.080 --> 00:08:06.160
  • I'M ON YOU.
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:08.220
  • I'M ANOINTING THIS,
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:10.140
  • YOU ARE PREACHING MY TRUTH.
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:12.180
  • KEEP DOING IT.
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:13.150
  • KEEP PREACHING" -- THERE WAS
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:14.120
  • A SENSE IN WHICH YOUR BODY
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:16.060
  • WAS RESPONDING TO THE INTENSITY
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:18.150
  • OF GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:19.240
  • I WISH I COULD TELL YOU
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:21.060
  • YOU ALWAYS SENSE THAT.
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:23.050
  • BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS,
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:24.190
  • OUT OF THE FOUR TALKS THERE,
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:26.270
  • WHEN I WAS AT MY WEAKEST,
  • 00:08:26.270 --> 00:08:28.040
  • GOD GAVE THE RICHEST ANOINTING.
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:31.140
  • THERE IS NO REASON FOR SELF
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:33.170
  • OR EGO IN THE CALLING
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:35.010
  • IN THIS WORK OR ANY OTHER WORK,
  • 00:08:35.010 --> 00:08:37.070
  • AND IF POLITICIANS
  • 00:08:37.070 --> 00:08:38.100
  • ARE SO EXALTED IN THEMSELVES,
  • 00:08:38.110 --> 00:08:41.110
  • BEWARE OF THEM, THEY ARE
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:44.000
  • DANGEROUS TO THEMSELVES,
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:44.180
  • TO THEIR FAMILY,
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:45.040
  • AND TO THE NATION.
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:48.280
  • IT IS ONLY THE HUMBLE
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:50.030
  • THAT GOD HAS PROMISED TO EXALT.
  • 00:08:50.030 --> 00:08:51.190
  • AND THE WISDOM THAT COMES
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:52.250
  • FROM ABOVE IS THE WISDOM
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:54.180
  • THAT GOD WANTS US TO HAVE.
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.210
  • HUMILITY; THE PLACE OF HISTORY,
  • 00:08:56.210 --> 00:08:58.250
  • FLUCTUATION; THE PLACE
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:00.140
  • OF THE LEADER,
  • 00:09:00.140 --> 00:09:01.270
  • POLITICIZATION;
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:03.120
  • THE PLACE OF THE PROPHET,
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:04.200
  • WHICH IS PROCLAMATION;
  • 00:09:04.200 --> 00:09:06.040
  • THAT'S WHAT WE ARE CALLED
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:07.220
  • TO DO.
  • 00:09:07.220 --> 00:09:08.130
  • AND I WANT TO POINT OUT
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:09.270
  • THREE THINGS TO YOU,
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:11.170
  • VERY QUICKLY, BEFORE I MOVE
  • 00:09:11.170 --> 00:09:12.140
  • TO THE FINAL THOUGHT HERE.
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:13.230
  • THERE IS A COST IN PREPARING,
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:15.290
  • AND THE COST GOES
  • 00:09:15.290 --> 00:09:17.060
  • WAY BEYOND OURSELVES.
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:19.030
  • I OFTEN WONDER,
  • 00:09:19.030 --> 00:09:20.140
  • EVEN WHEN MY MOTHER
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.240
  • DIDN'T KNOW CHRIST,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:22.260
  • HOW MUCH TIME SHE ACTUALLY SPENT
  • 00:09:22.260 --> 00:09:24.220
  • ON HER KNEES ASKING GOD
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:26.110
  • TO INTERVENE IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:28.020
  • I THINK OF HANNAH
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.150
  • GOING TO THE TEMPLE
  • 00:09:29.150 --> 00:09:30.180
  • AND USING THE WORDS,
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:31.180
  • "GOD, REMEMBER ME, REMEMBER ME."
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:35.060
  • YOU GO THROUGH THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:36.060
  • AND LOOK AT THE "REMEMBER MES"
  • 00:09:36.060 --> 00:09:37.090
  • AND YOU'LL FIND HOW CRUCIAL
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:39.070
  • THEY ARE.
  • 00:09:39.070 --> 00:09:39.150
  • SAMSON, WHEN HE WALKED AWAY
  • 00:09:39.150 --> 00:09:40.210
  • FROM GOD,
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:41.130
  • WALKS INTO PUBLIC
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:42.070
  • AND SAYS "LORD, REMEMBER ME."
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:43.080
  • THE THIEF ON THE CROSS
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:44.110
  • ABOUT TO DIE,
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.000
  • LORD, REMEMBER ME.
  • 00:09:45.000 --> 00:09:45.240
  • AND HERE'S HANNAH SAYING,
  • 00:09:45.240 --> 00:09:46.240
  • "PLEASE REMEMBER ME."
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:48.230
  • AND GOD BLESSED HER
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:49.190
  • WITH THAT SON, SAMUEL.
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:50.230
  • HANNAH WAS BEHIND IT.
  • 00:09:50.230 --> 00:09:53.170
  • SUSANNA WESLEY WAS
  • 00:09:53.170 --> 00:09:55.070
  • BEHIND JOHN WESLEY.
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:56.180
  • HISTORY TELLS US LITTLE.
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:59.170
  • ETERNITY WILL TELL US
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:01.030
  • WHEREIN LAY THE REAL POWERS
  • 00:10:01.030 --> 00:10:03.060
  • BEFORE THE ANOINTING
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.130
  • AND THE CALLING OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:04.130 --> 00:10:05.230
  • PEOPLE WHOSE NAMES
  • 00:10:05.230 --> 00:10:06.210
  • WE WILL NEVER KNOW, WHO PRAYED
  • 00:10:06.210 --> 00:10:09.020
  • AND WHO CALLED UPON GOD,
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:10.220
  • AND WHO COVETED GOD'S WORK
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.160
  • ON AN INDIVIDUAL'S LIFE.
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.170
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU,
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:15.280
  • THREE THINGS VERY QUICKLY
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:16.260
  • ON THE CALLING OF A PROPHET.
  • 00:10:16.260 --> 00:10:18.070
  • NOUMBER ONE IS THE COST.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:19.240
  • THE COST.
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:22.090
  • WHEN I LOOK AT SOME
  • 00:10:22.090 --> 00:10:24.000
  • OF MY YOUNGER COLLEAGUES,
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:25.030
  • SOMETIMES I REALLY FEEL
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:26.280
  • LIKE SHEDDING A TEAR FOR THEM
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:29.250
  • AS I SAY TO MYSELF
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:30.220
  • DO THEY REALLY KNOW
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:32.040
  • WHAT ALL COULD LIE AHEAD?
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:33.290
  • IT'S GREAT WHEN YOU START OUT
  • 00:10:33.290 --> 00:10:35.010
  • AND IT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.210
  • COST OF IT,
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:38.250
  • THE EXPRESSION OF IT,
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:41.040
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE DUPLICITY,
  • 00:10:41.040 --> 00:10:43.060
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE DISTORTION,
  • 00:10:43.060 --> 00:10:44.160
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE DECEPTION,
  • 00:10:44.160 --> 00:10:46.070
  • YOU CANNOT PREACH YOURSELF,
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:48.050
  • THAT'S PAUL'S 2 CORINTHIANS 4.
  • 00:10:48.050 --> 00:10:50.110
  • AND I'LL MOVE ON.
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:51.230
  • AND YOU HAVE TO SEE THE UNSEEN
  • 00:10:51.230 --> 00:10:53.100
  • AND THE CHARIOTS OF FIRE
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:10:55.140
  • THAT GOD IS GOING TO PROVIDE
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:56.140
  • FOR YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:59.290
  • THE PLACE OF THE MIRACLE;
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.240
  • AFFIRMATION.
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:02.280
  • HISTORY; FLUCTUATION.
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:04.000
  • LEADERSHIP; POLITICIZATION.
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:05.150
  • PROPHETIC VOICE; PROCLAMATION.
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:07.080
  • PLACE OF THE MIRACLE,
  • 00:11:07.080 --> 00:11:08.010
  • AFFIRMATION.
  • 00:11:08.010 --> 00:11:09.160
  • I HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL YOU HERE,
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:11.180
  • BUT THIS IS A SERMON
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:13.010
  • ALL IN ITSELF,
  • 00:11:13.010 --> 00:11:14.150
  • THE PLACE OF THE MIRACLE.
  • 00:11:14.150 --> 00:11:15.170
  • BUT I WON'T GO INTO DETAILS;
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:17.210
  • I'VE GOT TWO PAGES
  • 00:11:17.210 --> 00:11:19.000
  • OF SCIENTIFIC FACTS HERE
  • 00:11:19.000 --> 00:11:20.260
  • THAT I WANT TO GIVE TO YOU.
  • 00:11:20.260 --> 00:11:22.040
  • I'LL LEAVE IT ALL OUT FOR NOW.
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:24.060
  • MAYBE IT WILL BE A TALK
  • 00:11:24.060 --> 00:11:25.090
  • FOR WHEATON OR SOMETHING,
  • 00:11:25.090 --> 00:11:26.140
  • WHEN I'M WITH YOU, STUART.
  • 00:11:26.140 --> 00:11:29.040
  • BUT I WANT TO CONCLUDE
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:30.090
  • IN THE MIRACLE SECTION
  • 00:11:30.090 --> 00:11:31.050
  • WITH JUST THIS:
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:32.060
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FULL LAWS
  • 00:11:33.060 --> 00:11:36.060
  • OF NATURE AS THEY TALK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:38.180
  • YOU'VE GOT THE LAW OF GRAVITY,
  • 00:11:38.180 --> 00:11:40.130
  • YOU'VE GOT ELECTROMAGNETISM,
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:42.050
  • YOU'VE GOT THE STRONG
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:43.200
  • AND THE WEAK NUCLEAR FORCES,
  • 00:11:43.200 --> 00:11:45.050
  • AND YOU TAKE THOSE
  • 00:11:45.050 --> 00:11:46.180
  • AND MULTIPLY THEM
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:47.140
  • INTO ALL THE CONTINGENCIES
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:49.030
  • THAT NEED TO BE EXACT
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:52.010
  • AND PRECISE OF SUCH
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:53.010
  • EXTRAORDINARY MAGNITUDE
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:54.190
  • THAT SCIENTISTS THEMSELVES
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:56.200
  • WILL TELL YOU,
  • 00:11:56.200 --> 00:11:57.150
  • THOSE WHO THINK WATER INTO WINE
  • 00:11:57.150 --> 00:11:58.210
  • IS TOUGH,
  • 00:11:58.210 --> 00:12:00.120
  • THIS IS TEN TIME TOUGHER.
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:02.180
  • THEY BELIEVE IN A MIRACLE.
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:04.190
  • LISTEN, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:12:04.190 --> 00:12:06.260
  • TO WHAT IT IS THAT
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:08.030
  • SIR FREDERICK HOYLE TALKED
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:09.080
  • ABOUT IN PROTEIN FORMATION.
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:10.290
  • HE SAYS THIS,
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:12.080
  • "IT IS AN OUTRAGEOUSLY
  • 00:12:12.080 --> 00:12:13.210
  • SMALL POSSIBILITY" --
  • 00:12:13.210 --> 00:12:14.200
  • HE GOES ON TO SAY
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:16.120
  • THAT HE CALCULATED THE ODDS
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:17.130
  • THAT ALL THE FUNCTIONAL
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:18.130
  • PROTEINS NECESSARY FOR LIFE
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:20.030
  • MIGHT FORM IN ONE PLACE
  • 00:12:20.030 --> 00:12:21.240
  • BY RANDOM EVENTS, AND HE
  • 00:12:21.240 --> 00:12:23.090
  • AND CHANDRA WICKRAMASINGHE,
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.170
  • WHO IS A PROFESSOR
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:25.090
  • OF MATHEMATICS
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:26.030
  • FROM CARDIGAN WALES,
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.080
  • PROFESSOR HOYLE, AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:28.230
  • IN CAMBRIDGE OF ASTRONOMY,
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:29.280
  • THEY CALCULATED THE ODDS
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:31.110
  • OF THIS HAPPENING
  • 00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:32.290
  • IN A RANDOM SETTING
  • 00:12:32.290 --> 00:12:34.060
  • IS GREATER THAN 1 IN 10TH
  • 00:12:34.060 --> 00:12:36.230
  • TO THE 40.000TH POWER.
  • 00:12:36.230 --> 00:12:39.020
  • THAT MEANS ONE FOLLOWED
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:39.280
  • BY FORTY THOUSAND ZEROES.
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:41.200
  • AND THEN HE GOES ON TO SAY THIS,
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:43.170
  • "SINCE THERE ARE ONLY 10TH
  • 00:12:43.250 --> 00:12:46.250
  • TO THE 80TH POWER ATOMS
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:47.160
  • IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE" --
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:48.070
  • HERE'S WHAT FREDERICK HOYLE
  • 00:12:48.070 --> 00:12:49.200
  • SAYS, "IT IS AN OUTRAGEOUSLY
  • 00:12:49.200 --> 00:12:51.010
  • SMALL PROBABILITY
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:52.280
  • THAT SIMPLY CANNOT BE FACED,
  • 00:12:52.280 --> 00:12:55.120
  • EVEN IF THE WHOLE UNIVERSE
  • 00:12:55.120 --> 00:12:56.260
  • AT ITS BEGINNING CONSISTED
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.080
  • OF MERELY ORGANIC SOUP."
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:13:00.180
  • THEN HE GOES ON TO SAY THIS,
  • 00:13:00.180 --> 00:13:01.240
  • AND I QUOTE, "LIFE COULD
  • 00:13:01.240 --> 00:13:04.110
  • NOT HAVE ORIGINATED
  • 00:13:04.110 --> 00:13:05.030
  • HERE ON EARTH."
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:05.170
  • DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE'S SAYING?
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:06.100
  • IT COULD NOT HAVE
  • 00:13:06.100 --> 00:13:07.150
  • ORIGINATED HERE ON EARTH.
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:08.140
  • NOR DOES IT LOOK AS THOUGH
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.200
  • BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTION
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:10.260
  • CAN BE EXPLAINED FROM WITHIN
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.090
  • AN EARTHBOUND THEORY OF LIFE.
  • 00:13:12.090 --> 00:13:14.040
  • GENES FROM OUTSIDE THE EARTH
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:16.160
  • ARE NEEDED TO DRIVE
  • 00:13:16.160 --> 00:13:18.010
  • THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS,
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:19.220
  • THIS MUCH CAN BE CONSOLIDATED
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:21.120
  • BY STRICTLY SCIENTIFIC MEANS
  • 00:13:21.120 --> 00:13:23.100
  • BY EXPERIMENT, BY OBSERVATION,
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:25.130
  • AND CALCULATION.
  • 00:13:25.130 --> 00:13:26.190
  • WHAT IS HE SAYING?
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:28.150
  • THE PANSPERMIA THEORY;
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:30.080
  • SEEDS HAD TO BE BROUGHT
  • 00:13:30.080 --> 00:13:33.020
  • FROM ANOTHER PLANET
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.110
  • IN ORDER TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:37.080
  • FOR EARTH TO BREED LIFE.
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:38.180
  • THAT'S WHAT HE WENT WITH.
  • 00:13:38.180 --> 00:13:41.170
  • THAT'S WHAT HE WENT WITH.
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:42.230
  • AND THEN YOU LISTEN
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:44.000
  • TO THIS COMMENT HERE,
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:45.020
  • STEVEN HAWKING, "WHY DID
  • 00:13:45.020 --> 00:13:46.280
  • THE UNIVERSE START OUT
  • 00:13:46.280 --> 00:13:48.000
  • WITH SO NEARLY THE CRITICAL RATE
  • 00:13:48.000 --> 00:13:49.120
  • OF EXPANSION THAT SEPARATES
  • 00:13:49.120 --> 00:13:50.200
  • MODELS THAT WE COLLAPSE
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:52.000
  • FROM THOSE THAT GO ON
  • 00:13:52.000 --> 00:13:52.250
  • EXPANDING FOREVER.
  • 00:13:52.250 --> 00:13:54.010
  • SO THAT EVEN NOW TEN THOUSAND
  • 00:13:54.010 --> 00:13:55.170
  • MILLION YEARS LATER," --
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:56.210
  • THAT'S U.S. 10 BILLION --
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:58.130
  • "IT IS STILL EXPANDING NEARLY
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:14:00.030
  • AT THE PRECISE CRITICAL RATE.
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:01.220
  • IF THE RATE OF EXPANSION
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:03.060
  • ONE SECOND AFTER THE BIG BANG
  • 00:14:03.060 --> 00:14:05.070
  • HAD BEEN SMALLER BY EVEN
  • 00:14:05.070 --> 00:14:06.180
  • ONE PART IN A THOUSAND,
  • 00:14:06.180 --> 00:14:07.280
  • MILLION, MILLION," --
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:08.240
  • THAT'S A U.S. QUINTILLION,
  • 00:14:08.240 --> 00:14:10.220
  • BY THE WAY -- "IF IT HAD CHANGED
  • 00:14:10.220 --> 00:14:12.110
  • ONE SECOND AFTER THE BIG BANG
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.190
  • BY EVEN A SMALLER PART

  • THAN ONE IN A QUINTILLION,
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:17.080
  • THE UNIVERSE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:18.030
  • RE-COLLAPSED BEFORE IT
  • 00:14:18.030 --> 00:14:18.280
  • EVER REACHED THE PRESENT STATE."
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:20.170
  • AND THEN HE MAKES THIS COMMENT,
  • 00:14:20.170 --> 00:14:22.100
  • "EVEN IF THERE IS ONLY
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:23.250
  • ONE POSSIBLE UNIFIED THEORY,

  • IT IS JUST A SET OF RULES
  • 00:14:24.290 --> 00:14:27.020
  • AND EQUATIONS,
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:27.260
  • THAT'S ALL IT IS.
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:28.250
  • MY QUESTION," SAYS HE,
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:30.170
  • "WHAT IS IT THAT BREATHS FIRE
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:32.180
  • INTO THE EQUATIONS
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:33.190
  • AND MAKES A UNIVERSE
  • 00:14:33.190 --> 00:14:34.260
  • FOR THEN US TO DESCRIBE.
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:36.180
  • THE USUAL APPROACH OF SCIENCE

  • A MATHEMATICAL MODEL
  • 00:14:39.050 --> 00:14:40.050
  • CANNOT ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:41.230
  • OF WHY THIS SHOULD BE
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:42.290
  • A UNIVERSE FOR THE MODEL
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.070
  • THAT WE HAVE TO DESCRIBE,
  • 00:14:44.070 --> 00:14:45.160

  • TO ALL THE BOTHER OF EXISTING."
  • 00:14:48.120 --> 00:14:51.120
  • SO FRANCIS CRICK COMES IN
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.180
  • AND SAYS THIS, "AN HONEST MAN
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:54.190
  • WITH ALL THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:14:54.190 --> 00:14:56.280
  • AVAILABLE TO US NOW
  • 00:14:56.280 --> 00:14:58.120
  • COULD ONLY STATE
  • 00:14:58.120 --> 00:14:58.250
  • THAT IN SOME SENSE THE ORIGIN
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:14:59.290
  • OF LIFE APPEARS AT THE MOMENT
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:01.100
  • TO BE ALMOST A MIRACLE.
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:04.240
  • SO MANY OTHER CONDITIONS

  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:08.020
  • SO STRICTLY FOLLOWED."
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:10.220
  • I WANT TO LEAVE YOU
  • 00:15:10.220 --> 00:15:12.110
  • WITH THIS APPLICATION AND THEN
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:14.130
  • CLOSE MY FINAL THOUGHT HERE.
  • 00:15:14.130 --> 00:15:16.050
  • AND IT IS THIS: A MIRACLE,
  • 00:15:17.080 --> 00:15:20.080
  • I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:22.020
  • THE AVERAGE NATURALIST
  • 00:15:22.020 --> 00:15:23.170
  • DOESN'T GO WITH THE MIRACLE
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:25.030
  • BECAUSE HE DOESN'T LIKE
  • 00:15:25.030 --> 00:15:26.060
  • WHERE IT'S GOING TO LEAD HIM.
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:29.040
  • IF THEY WOULD OBSERVE
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:30.180
  • THE SIMPLE SUBLIMITY OF LIFE --
  • 00:15:31.150 --> 00:15:34.150
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE BECOME
  • 00:15:34.150 --> 00:15:35.070
  • A GRANDFATHER IN THE LAST YEAR,
  • 00:15:35.200 --> 00:15:38.200
  • AND YOU TAKE A TINY LITTLE BABY
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:41.170
  • IN YOUR ARMS AND YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:43.030
  • SEE THEM VERY DIFFERENTLY TO,
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:45.050
  • EVEN IN A WAY YOU SAW
  • 00:15:45.050 --> 00:15:46.250
  • YOUR OWN CHILDREN,
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:47.260
  • AND I HAVE A THEORY ON THAT.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:49.190
  • BUT YOU SEE THIS
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:51.140
  • TINY LITTLE ONE, AND YOU WATCH
  • 00:15:51.140 --> 00:15:54.090
  • THE CRAWLING START,
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:56.050
  • THE ATTEMPT TO WALK,
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:58.130
  • THE LAUGHTER, THE SMILE,
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:16:01.170
  • THE TEARS, THE NAMES,
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:05.080
  • THE REACHING OUT OF THE ARMS.
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:07.130
  • AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:09.140
  • WHEN YOU'RE MARRIED
  • 00:16:09.140 --> 00:16:10.160
  • AS LONG AS I HAVE BEEN MARRIED,
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:11.270
  • MY WIFE KNOWS EVERYTHING
  • 00:16:11.270 --> 00:16:13.070
  • I'M GOING TO SAY.
  • 00:16:13.070 --> 00:16:15.000
  • AND I'VE NOTICED OF LATE,
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:16.230
  • WHENEVER I THINK I'VE COME UP
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:17.270
  • WITH ANYTHING PROFOUND,
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:20.030
  • AND I WANT TO BACK UP
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:20.280
  • AND SMILE AND THINK THAT WAS
  • 00:16:20.280 --> 00:16:22.030
  • A GREAT THOUGHT, SHE'LL SAY,
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:23.000
  • "WELL, IT'S NOT JUST THAT,"
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:24.190
  • AND THEN SHE'LL COME UP
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:25.160
  • WITH SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:26.130
  • SO I CALL IT THAT
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.180
  • "NOT JUST THAT" MOMENT.
  • 00:16:27.180 --> 00:16:29.190
  • BUT RECENTLY I GAVE HER
  • 00:16:29.190 --> 00:16:31.080
  • MY THEORY OF WHY GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:32.100
  • ARE SEEN THE WAY THEY ARE.
  • 00:16:32.100 --> 00:16:34.060
  • I SAID, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:16:34.060 --> 00:16:35.060
  • A PARENT YOU'RE EXPENDING
  • 00:16:35.060 --> 00:16:36.120
  • SO MUCH OF ENERGY
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:37.170
  • JUST TAKING CARE OF THEM,
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:38.230
  • AND IF YOU HAVE AN X AMOUNT
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:39.210
  • OF ENERGY LOCKED UP WITHIN YOU,
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:42.010
  • IT'S ALL EXPANDED IN JUST GIVING
  • 00:16:42.010 --> 00:16:43.290
  • AND TAKING CARE
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.060
  • AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS,
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:46.040
  • AND ALL OF THAT,
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:46.270
  • YOU DON'T HAVE A CHANCE
  • 00:16:46.270 --> 00:16:47.210
  • JUST TO SIT BACK AND MARVEL
  • 00:16:47.210 --> 00:16:50.090
  • AT ALL OF THIS GRANDEUR
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:51.270
  • UNTIL YOU ARE IN YOUR OLD YEARS
  • 00:16:51.270 --> 00:16:54.090
  • AND THEN CAME
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:55.080
  • THE "YEAH, BUT NOT JUST THAT."
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:57.080
  • I SAID HERE IT COMES.
  • 00:16:57.080 --> 00:16:59.000
  • AND THIS IS NOT JUST ONE
  • 00:16:59.000 --> 00:17:00.030
  • OF THOSE "NOT JUST THAT'S"
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:01.030
  • AND I THINK IT WAS
  • 00:17:01.030 --> 00:17:01.220
  • VERY WELL DONE;
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:02.100
  • I HAVE TO ADMIT IT IN PUBLIC.
  • 00:17:02.100 --> 00:17:04.040
  • SHE SAID TO ME
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:05.260
  • IT'S NOT JUST THAT, I THINK.
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:07.170
  • SHE SAID, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:08.230
  • MAYBE WHEN WE'RE OLDER
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:11.060
  • WE KNOW WHAT REALLY LIES AHEAD
  • 00:17:11.060 --> 00:17:12.180
  • IN LIFE, AND YOUR HEART REACHES
  • 00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:16.010
  • OUT WITH THIS SENSE OF JOY,
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:18.080
  • BUT ALSO A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:17:18.080 --> 00:17:19.080
  • OF APPREHENSION OF WHAT
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.290
  • MAY LIE AHEAD OF THEM.
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:24.120
  • THE WORLD KNOWS THIS.
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:27.090
  • THE WORLD KNOWS THIS.
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:29.030
  • AND THE ULTIMATE BATTLE
  • 00:17:29.030 --> 00:17:30.020
  • IS BETWEEN GOOD THE EVIL.
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:33.050
  • IF THE BATTLE IS ULTIMATELY
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:34.290
  • BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL,
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:36.190
  • THEN LET ME END BY SAYING
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:39.230
  • TO YOU, WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:41.230
  • A ROCK MUSICIAN SAID,
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:43.040
  • "WHY DO WE NEVER GET AN ANSWER
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.130
  • WHEN WE'RE KNOCKING AT THE DOOR?
  • 00:17:44.130 --> 00:17:46.000
  • THERE'S A THOUSAND,
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:47.010
  • MILLION QUESTIONS
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:47.250
  • ABOUT HATE AND DEATH AND WAR.
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:48.280
  • BECAUSE WHEN WE STOP
  • 00:17:48.280 --> 00:17:49.290
  • AND LOOK AROUND US,
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:50.230
  • THERE'S NOTHING THAT WE NEED
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:51.190
  • IN A WORLD OF PERSECUTION
  • 00:17:51.190 --> 00:17:53.050
  • THAT IS WHIRLING IN ITS GREED.
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:55.000
  • WHY DO WE NEVER GET AN ANSWER
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:56.110
  • WHEN WE'RE KNOCKING
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:57.090
  • AT THE DOOR?"
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:58.020
  • AND THEN HE SAYS THIS,
  • 00:17:58.020 --> 00:17:59.150
  • "I'M LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:01.050
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.150
  • I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:03.250
  • TO CHANGE MY LIFE."
  • 00:18:03.250 --> 00:18:05.070
  • THE ROCK MUSICIAN SAYS THAT.
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:06.290
  • WHY DO WE NEVER GET AN ANSWER?
  • 00:18:06.290 --> 00:18:08.070
  • I'M LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE.
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:10.090
  • THAT'S THE GREATEST MIRACLE
  • 00:18:10.090 --> 00:18:11.270
  • YOU AND I CAN WITNESS
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:13.030
  • AND SPREAD TO THE WORLD;
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:15.010
  • THAT GOD CAN CHANGE THE HEART
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:17.010
  • OF A PERSON BENT TOWARDS
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.130
  • WICKEDNESS AND EVIL,
  • 00:18:18.130 --> 00:18:19.180
  • AND TRANSFORM THAT INDIVIDUAL
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:21.120
  • FOR GOOD AND THE GLORY OF GOD;
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:23.170
  • THAT'S WHY THIS MINISTRY EXISTS.
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:28.010
  • I WILL CLOSE BY GIVING YOU
  • 00:18:28.010 --> 00:18:30.290
  • THIS SIMPLE LITTLE ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:18:30.290 --> 00:18:32.130
  • AND CLOSING IT WITH A PIECE
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.070
  • OF POETRY.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:35.250
  • PLEASE FOLLOW ME, I WANT
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.160
  • TO PULL IT ALL TOGETHER NOW.
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:39.040
  • I KNOW WE WANDERED A LOT
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:40.210
  • IN A PLACE OF POLITICS,
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:42.000
  • PLACE OF HISTORY,
  • 00:18:42.000 --> 00:18:43.280
  • THE PLACE OF THE PROPHET,
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:46.080
  • AND THE PLACE OF NOW, WE COME,
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:48.060
  • RIGHTLY, ULTIMATELY,
  • 00:18:48.060 --> 00:18:49.070
  • IN THE MIRACLE, AND NOW
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.070
  • TO THE PLACE OF THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:52.220
  • WHEN I ARRIVED AT ANGOLA PRISON,
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:56.070
  • JUST AS SOON AS I GOT OFF
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:57.180
  • MY PLANE,
  • 00:18:57.180 --> 00:18:58.200
  • TURNED MY BLACKBERRY ON,
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:00.180
  • THERE WAS A MESSAGE FROM NANCY,
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:02.160
  • SHE'S ON OUR STAFF.
  • 00:19:02.160 --> 00:19:03.130
  • NANCY, AS YOU KNOW, HAS BEEN
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:04.180
  • WITH ME FOR ABOUT 27, 28 YEARS.
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:06.180
  • SHE SAID, "RAVI, A LADY
  • 00:19:06.180 --> 00:19:08.170
  • JUST GOT ON OUR WEBSITE
  • 00:19:08.170 --> 00:19:09.290
  • AND FOUND OUT THAT YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:10.290
  • TO BE IN ANGOLA PRISON,
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:12.050
  • AND HER SON MELVIN IS IN PRISON.
  • 00:19:12.050 --> 00:19:14.120
  • SHE'S HOPING AND PRAYING
  • 00:19:14.120 --> 00:19:15.100
  • YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SEE HIM.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:17.230
  • SO AS SOON AS I GOT INTO THE CAR
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.090
  • I TALKED TO THE CHAPLAIN,
  • 00:19:19.090 --> 00:19:20.250
  • I SAID HERE'S A NAME
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:22.000
  • AND HERE'S A NUMBER,
  • 00:19:22.000 --> 00:19:23.090
  • IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN SEE
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.140
  • THIS YOUNG MAN BEFORE I LEFT,
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:25.180
  • AND I LEFT IT WITH HIM.
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:26.180
  • THE DAY WENT AND
  • 00:19:26.180 --> 00:19:27.200
  • I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING.
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.120
  • AND THEN WE COME TO THE MOMENT
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:31.260
  • WHEN I'M ABOUT TO SPEAK,
  • 00:19:31.260 --> 00:19:34.060
  • AND AS WE'RE ABOUT TO SPEAK,
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:35.260
  • THIS GUY WALKS IN.
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:37.190
  • BUT LET ME BACK UP
  • 00:19:37.190 --> 00:19:38.180
  • TO TWO SCENES BEFORE THAT.
  • 00:19:38.180 --> 00:19:41.070
  • THE ONE SCENE IS I'M SPEAKING
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:44.050
  • TO 90 STUDENTS WHO ARE
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:46.000
  • STUDYING THEOLOGY IN THE PRISON;
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:47.110
  • THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO GET OUT,
  • 00:19:47.110 --> 00:19:48.230
  • BUT THEY'RE STUDYING
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:49.230
  • TO BECOME PASTORS
  • 00:19:49.230 --> 00:19:50.140
  • TO THE PRISONERS.
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:51.170
  • IN THAT PRISON TODAY
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:52.170
  • NO PROFANITY'S ALLOWED
  • 00:19:52.170 --> 00:19:53.180
  • BY STAFF OR INMATE.
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:56.180
  • THE PLACE HAS BEEN CLEANED UP
  • 00:19:56.180 --> 00:19:57.210
  • BY THIS GODLY MAN WHO HAD
  • 00:19:57.210 --> 00:19:59.090
  • A PASSION TO COME AND MAKE
  • 00:19:59.090 --> 00:20:00.170
  • A DIFFERENCE AND BECOME
  • 00:20:00.170 --> 00:20:01.130
  • ONE OF THE SAFEST PRISONS
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:02.080
  • IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:03.160
  • AND THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:04.080
  • A THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTION,
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:05.050
  • 90 STUDENTS ENROLLED.
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:06.220
  • AND AS I'D FINISHED SPEAKING,
  • 00:20:06.220 --> 00:20:09.220
  • ONE YOUNG MAN CAME UP TO ME
  • 00:20:09.220 --> 00:20:10.290
  • AND HE SAID, "I WANT
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:12.270
  • TO THANK YOU."
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:14.020
  • HE SAID YOUR BOOKS,
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:14.260
  • AND THIS AND THAT,
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:15.180
  • WE WERE TALKING.
  • 00:20:15.180 --> 00:20:16.120
  • I SAID, "ARE YOU HERE FOR LIFE?"
  • 00:20:16.120 --> 00:20:17.110
  • HE SAID, "YES, SIR."
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:18.050
  • I SAID, "HOW DO YOU COPE?"
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:21.090
  • HE SAID, "THE ONLY THING THAT
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:22.040
  • REALLY MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE,
  • 00:20:22.040 --> 00:20:23.040
  • TWO THINGS," HE SAID.
  • 00:20:23.040 --> 00:20:24.150
  • HE SAID, "I USED TO BELONG
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:25.120
  • TO A CULT,"
  • 00:20:25.120 --> 00:20:26.100
  • AND HE NAMES THE CULT,
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:28.080
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:20:28.080 --> 00:20:28.270
  • "AND THE OTHER THING
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:29.200
  • IS SUNDAY MORNING WHEN I WATCH
  • 00:20:29.200 --> 00:20:31.000
  • THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL PEOPLE
  • 00:20:31.000 --> 00:20:31.220
  • ON TELEVISION AND I SAY
  • 00:20:31.220 --> 00:20:32.200
  • TO MYSELF LOOK AT THE LIES.
  • 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:34.100
  • THE PRISONERS HERE ARE
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:35.080
  • NEVER GOING TO GET OUT OF HERE,
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:36.160
  • AND THEY'RE GIVING THEM
  • 00:20:36.160 --> 00:20:37.050
  • ALL KINDS OF FALSE HOPE."
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:38.020
  • HE SAID, "IT REALLY BOTHERS ME."
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:39.230
  • HE SAID, "BUT THE THING
  • 00:20:39.230 --> 00:20:40.230
  • THAT BOTHERS ME MOST
  • 00:20:40.230 --> 00:20:42.070
  • IS NOT THAT I'M IN HERE
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:43.110
  • FOR MY LIFE SENTENCE --
  • 00:20:43.110 --> 00:20:44.220
  • I CAN LIVE BECAUSE I'VE NOW
  • 00:20:44.220 --> 00:20:46.210
  • FOUND JESUS CHRIST IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.110
  • BUT MY PARENTS ARE STILL
  • 00:20:48.110 --> 00:20:49.230
  • LOCKED UP IN THIS CULT
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:51.030
  • AND I'M WISHING DESPERATELY
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:52.090
  • SOMEBODY WILL TAKE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:20:52.090 --> 00:20:53.150
  • OF JESUS CHRIST TO THEM."
  • 00:20:53.150 --> 00:20:55.280
  • THAT EVENING HE WAS
  • 00:20:55.280 --> 00:20:56.250
  • IN THE MUSICAL GROUP SINGING
  • 00:20:56.250 --> 00:20:58.100
  • BEFORE I SPOKE,
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:21:00.110
  • AND THEN WHEN I WENT
  • 00:21:00.110 --> 00:21:02.080
  • TO THE DEATH ROW PLACE
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:03.120
  • AND ABOUT THE PLACE
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:04.160
  • OF EXECUTION,
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:05.240
  • I SAW TWO PAINTINGS ON THE WALL.
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:07.070
  • ONE PAINTING ON THE WALL
  • 00:21:07.070 --> 00:21:09.030
  • WAS DANIEL IN THE LION'S DEN,
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:11.060
  • TO INTIMATE TO THE PERSON
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:12.140
  • ABOUT TO BE EXECUTED
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:13.090
  • AS HE'S KNEELING,
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:14.160
  • THAT YOU CAN STILL BE RESCUED,
  • 00:21:14.160 --> 00:21:16.090
  • MAYBE, AND YOU PRAY.
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:18.180
  • BUT IF YOU'RE NOT RESCUED
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:20.000
  • YOU LOOK AT THE OTHER WALL
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:21.180
  • AND THERE'S A CHARIOT OF FIRE
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:22.230
  • TAKING ELIJAH UP
  • 00:21:22.230 --> 00:21:24.030
  • INTO THE HEAVENS,
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:24.270
  • IF YOU'RE NOT RESCUED THIS WAY,
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:26.080
  • YOU'LL BE RESCUED THAT WAY;
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:27.240
  • PAINTED BY THE PRISONERS.
  • 00:21:28.130 --> 00:21:31.130
  • THE EVENING BEGINS AND A MAN --
  • 00:21:31.230 --> 00:21:34.230
  • I'M ABOUT TO SPEAK
  • 00:21:34.230 --> 00:21:35.250
  • AND A MAN COMES HAT IN HAND
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.070
  • LIKE THIS, AND THE CHAPLAIN
  • 00:21:37.070 --> 00:21:39.160
  • COMES AND SAYS THIS IS MELVIN.
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:41.170
  • HE SAYS, "HOW ARE YOU, SIR?"
  • 00:21:41.170 --> 00:21:42.240
  • I SAID, "YOU'RE MELVIN?"
  • 00:21:42.240 --> 00:21:43.260
  • HE SAID, "YES."
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:44.260
  • I SAID, "PLEASE SIT DOWN."
  • 00:21:44.260 --> 00:21:45.240
  • HE SAID, "I CAN'T,
  • 00:21:45.240 --> 00:21:46.170
  • I SHOULD SIT IN THE BACK."
  • 00:21:46.170 --> 00:21:47.140
  • I SAID, "NO, YOU SIT DOWN HERE.
  • 00:21:47.140 --> 00:21:48.110
  • THE WARDEN IS HERE, IT'S OKAY."
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:49.250
  • HE SAID, "ARE YOU SURE?"
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:50.240
  • I SAID, "YEAH."
  • 00:21:50.240 --> 00:21:51.170
  • SAT DOWN LIKE THIS AND I SAID,
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:52.180
  • "MELVIN, I GOT A LETTER
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.050
  • FROM YOUR MOTHER.
  • 00:21:54.050 --> 00:21:55.270
  • SHE'S PRAYING FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:56.100 --> 00:21:59.100
  • SHE'S HURTING OVER
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:00.120
  • WHAT'S HAPPENED TO YOU."
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:00.290
  • AND HIS EYES LIFTED,
  • 00:22:00.290 --> 00:22:02.120
  • AND HE'S GOING LIKE THIS.
  • 00:22:02.120 --> 00:22:03.260
  • I FINISHED PREACHING,
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:05.030
  • GAVE THE INVITATION,
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:05.290
  • SEVERAL CAME FORWARD,
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:06.280
  • I WALKED BACK TO MELVIN,
  • 00:22:06.280 --> 00:22:08.020
  • HE'S STANDING THERE HAT IN HAND,
  • 00:22:08.020 --> 00:22:09.070
  • I PUT MY HAND ON HIS SHOULDERS,
  • 00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:10.150
  • I SAID, "DO YOU HAVE A BIBLE?"
  • 00:22:10.150 --> 00:22:11.230
  • HE SAID, "YES."
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.100
  • "IN YOUR ROOM?"
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:12.290
  • HE SAID, "YES."
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:13.170
  • I SAID, "DO YOU READ IT?"
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:14.110
  • HE SAID, "NO, SIR."
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:15.140
  • I SAID, "I HEAR YOU USED
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:17.000
  • TO GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:22:17.000 --> 00:22:17.250
  • ONE TIME YOU SAID
  • 00:22:17.250 --> 00:22:18.120
  • YOU BELIEVED ALL THIS."
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:19.010
  • HE SAID, "YES, SIR."
  • 00:22:19.010 --> 00:22:19.170
  • I SAID, "WHY AREN'T
  • 00:22:19.170 --> 00:22:20.040
  • YOU READING IT NOW?"
  • 00:22:20.040 --> 00:22:20.200
  • HE SAID, "I DON'T KNOW."
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:22.180
  • I SAID, "ARE YOU PLEASE
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:23.190
  • WITH WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE?"
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:25.160
  • WE CHATTED.
  • 00:22:25.160 --> 00:22:26.220
  • AT THE END OF IT, AS HIS TEARS
  • 00:22:26.220 --> 00:22:28.120
  • ROLLED DOWN THE FACE,
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:29.090
  • I HAD THE PRIVILEGE
  • 00:22:29.090 --> 00:22:30.210
  • OF LEADING HIM TO JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:34.090
  • YOU SHOULD SEE THE LETTER
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:35.150
  • HIS MOTHER WROTE
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:36.150
  • TO US AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:22:36.150 --> 00:22:37.250
  • SHE SAID I JUST JUMPED
  • 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:39.090
  • INTO THE AIR WHEN I HEARD THIS
  • 00:22:39.090 --> 00:22:41.100
  • AND FOUND OUT WHAT'S HAPPENED
  • 00:22:41.100 --> 00:22:42.180
  • TO MY BOY AT ANGOLA PRISON.
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:50.000
  • OSCAR WILDE WROTE THIS
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:51.040
  • WHEN HE WAS IN PRISON,
  • 00:22:51.040 --> 00:22:53.070
  • AND WITH THIS I CLOSE.
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:57.270
  • HE TALKS ABOUT A MAN
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:22:58.240
  • WHO'S CONDEMNED TO DIE.
  • 00:22:58.240 --> 00:23:01.030
  • "HE DID NOT WEAR
  • 00:23:01.030 --> 00:23:01.290
  • HIS SCARLET COAT,
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.160
  • FOR BLOOD AND WINE ARE RED,
  • 00:23:03.160 --> 00:23:05.290
  • AND BLOOD AND WINE
  • 00:23:05.290 --> 00:23:06.250
  • WERE ON HIS HANDS
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:08.140
  • WHEN THE FOUND HIM
  • 00:23:08.140 --> 00:23:09.150
  • WITH THE DEAD,
  • 00:23:09.150 --> 00:23:10.270
  • THE WOMAN WHOM HE SAID
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:13.110
  • HE LOVED,
  • 00:23:13.110 --> 00:23:14.030
  • HE MURDERED IN HER BED.
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:16.080
  • HE WALKED AMONGST THE TRIAL MEN
  • 00:23:16.080 --> 00:23:18.000
  • IN A SHABBY SUIT OF GREY;
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:20.000
  • A CRICKET CAP WAS ON HIS HEAD,
  • 00:23:20.000 --> 00:23:22.040
  • AND HIS STEP SEEMED LIGHT
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:23.180
  • AND GAY;
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:24.250
  • BUT I NEVER SAW A MAN
  • 00:23:24.250 --> 00:23:26.030
  • WHO LOOKED SO WISTFULLY
  • 00:23:26.030 --> 00:23:27.150
  • AT DAY.
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:28.230
  • I NEVER SAW A MAN WHO LOOKED
  • 00:23:28.230 --> 00:23:30.020
  • WITH SUCH A WISTFUL EYE
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:32.030
  • UPON THAT LITTLE TENT OF BLUE
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:33.250
  • WHICH PRISONERS CALL THE SKY,
  • 00:23:33.250 --> 00:23:35.230
  • AND AT EVERY DRIFTING CLOUD
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:37.150
  • THAT WENT
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:38.170
  • WITH SAILS OF SILVER BY.
  • 00:23:38.170 --> 00:23:40.160
  • I WALKED, WITH OTHER SOULS
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:42.010
  • IN PAIN,
  • 00:23:42.010 --> 00:23:42.260
  • WITHIN ANOTHER RING,
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:44.050
  • AND WAS WONDERING
  • 00:23:44.050 --> 00:23:45.100
  • IF WHAT THE MAN HAD DONE
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:46.220
  • A GREAT OR LITTLE THING,
  • 00:23:46.220 --> 00:23:48.120
  • WHEN A VOICE BEHIND ME
  • 00:23:48.120 --> 00:23:49.240
  • WHISPERED LOW,
  • 00:23:49.240 --> 00:23:50.280
  • 'THAT FELLOW'S GOING TO SWING.'
  • 00:23:50.280 --> 00:23:53.190
  • DEAR CHRIST!
  • 00:23:53.190 --> 00:23:55.000
  • THESE VERY PRISON WALLS
  • 00:23:55.000 --> 00:23:56.120
  • SUDDENLY SEEMED TO REEL,
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:58.230
  • AND THE SKY ABOVE MY HEAD
  • 00:23:58.230 --> 00:24:00.140
  • BECAME LIKE A CASQUE
  • 00:24:00.140 --> 00:24:01.200
  • OF SCORCHING STEEL;
  • 00:24:01.200 --> 00:24:03.170
  • AND, THOUGH I WAS A SOUL
  • 00:24:03.170 --> 00:24:05.020
  • IN PAIN,
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:05.240
  • MY PAIN I COULD NOT FEEL.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:07.250
  • I KNOW NOT WHETHER LAWS
  • 00:24:07.250 --> 00:24:09.060
  • BE RIGHT,
  • 00:24:09.060 --> 00:24:09.230
  • OR WHETHER LAWS BE WRONG;
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:11.160
  • ALL THAT WE KNOW WHO LIE IN JAIL
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:13.250
  • IS THAT THE WALL IS STRONG;
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:15.280
  • AND THAT EACH DAY
  • 00:24:15.280 --> 00:24:17.080
  • IS LIKE A YEAR,
  • 00:24:17.080 --> 00:24:18.000
  • A YEAR WHOSE DAYS ARE LONG.
  • 00:24:18.000 --> 00:24:20.140
  • BUT THIS I KNOW,
  • 00:24:20.140 --> 00:24:21.130
  • THAT EVERY LAW
  • 00:24:21.130 --> 00:24:22.140
  • THAT MEN HAVE MADE FOR MAN,
  • 00:24:22.140 --> 00:24:24.200
  • SINCE FIRST MAN TOOK
  • 00:24:24.200 --> 00:24:26.090
  • HIS BROTHER'S LIFE,
  • 00:24:26.090 --> 00:24:27.120
  • THE SAD WORLD BEGAN,
  • 00:24:27.120 --> 00:24:29.000
  • THAT BLOWS THE WHEAT
  • 00:24:29.000 --> 00:24:30.110
  • AND SAVES THE CHAFF
  • 00:24:30.110 --> 00:24:31.220
  • WITH A MOST EVIL FAN.
  • 00:24:31.220 --> 00:24:33.250
  • IN READING GAOL BY READING TOWN
  • 00:24:33.250 --> 00:24:35.180
  • THERE IS A PIT OF SHAME,
  • 00:24:35.180 --> 00:24:37.080
  • AND IN IT LIES A WRETCHED MAN
  • 00:24:37.080 --> 00:24:39.050
  • CONSUMED BY TEETH OF FLAME,
  • 00:24:39.050 --> 00:24:40.230
  • IN A BURNING WINDING-SHEET
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:42.120
  • HE LIES,
  • 00:24:42.120 --> 00:24:43.070
  • AND HIS GRAVE HAS GOT NO NAME.
  • 00:24:43.070 --> 00:24:45.220
  • AND THERE, TILL CHRIST
  • 00:24:45.220 --> 00:24:47.120
  • SHALL CALL FORTH THE DEAD,
  • 00:24:47.120 --> 00:24:48.200
  • IN SILENCE LET HIM LIE:
  • 00:24:48.200 --> 00:24:50.280
  • NO NEED TO WASTE
  • 00:24:50.280 --> 00:24:52.010
  • THE FOOLISH TEAR,
  • 00:24:52.010 --> 00:24:53.060
  • OR HEAVE A WINDY SIGH:
  • 00:24:53.060 --> 00:24:55.140
  • THE MAD HAD KILLED,
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:56.220
  • THE MAN HAD KILLED THE THING

  • HE LOVED,
  • 00:24:57.280 --> 00:24:58.190
  • AND SO HE HAD TO DIE.
  • 00:24:58.190 --> 00:25:00.080
  • AND ALL MEN KILL THE THING
  • 00:25:00.080 --> 00:25:02.090
  • THEY LOVE,
  • 00:25:02.090 --> 00:25:03.050
  • BY ALL LET THIS BE HEARD,
  • 00:25:03.050 --> 00:25:05.110
  • SOME DO IT WITH A BITTER LOOK,
  • 00:25:05.110 --> 00:25:07.170
  • SOME WITH A FLATTERING WORD,
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:09.150
  • THE COWARD DOES IT WILL A KISS,
  • 00:25:09.150 --> 00:25:11.180
  • THE BRAVE MAN WITH A SWORD!
  • 00:25:11.180 --> 00:25:13.150
  • AND EVERY HUMAN HEART
  • 00:25:13.150 --> 00:25:14.210
  • THAT BREAKS,
  • 00:25:14.210 --> 00:25:16.100
  • IN PRISON-CELL OR YARD,
  • 00:25:16.100 --> 00:25:17.140
  • IS AS THAT BROKEN BOX
  • 00:25:17.140 --> 00:25:18.290
  • THAT GAVE ITS TREASURE
  • 00:25:18.290 --> 00:25:20.120
  • TO THE LORD, AND FILLED
  • 00:25:20.120 --> 00:25:21.210
  • THE UNCLEAN LEPER'S HOUSE
  • 00:25:21.210 --> 00:25:23.070
  • WITH THE SCENT OF PRECIOUS NARD.

  • AH! HAPPY THEY

  • AND PEACE OF PARDON WIN!
  • 00:25:29.120 --> 00:25:30.270
  • HOW ELSE MAY MAN MAKE STRAIGHT

  • HIS PLAN
  • 00:25:32.190 --> 00:25:33.230
  • AND CLEANSE HIS SOUL FROM SIN?

  • THE MAN IN RED WHO READS THE LAW
  • 00:25:53.210 --> 00:25:55.270
  • GAVE HIM THREE WEEKS TO LIFE;
  • 00:25:55.270 --> 00:25:57.110
  • THREE LITTLE WEEKS
  • 00:25:57.110 --> 00:25:58.290
  • IN WHICH TO HEAL HIS SOUL

  • OF HIS SOUL'S STRIFE,
  • 00:26:00.100 --> 00:26:01.200
  • AND CLEANSE FROM EVERY BLOT
  • 00:26:01.200 --> 00:26:03.140
  • OF BLOOD THE HAND
  • 00:26:03.140 --> 00:26:04.200
  • THAT HELD THE KNIFE.

  • AND WITH TEARS OF BLOOD
  • 00:26:05.250 --> 00:26:07.140
  • HE CLEANSED THE HAND,

  • FOR ONLY BLOOD
  • 00:26:10.180 --> 00:26:12.280
  • CAN WIPE OUT BLOOD,
  • 00:26:12.280 --> 00:26:14.230
  • AND ONLY TEARS CAN HEAL:
