  • ON "PARENTS AND TEENS."
  • 00:02:03.050 --> 00:02:05.080
  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: TONIGHT,
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:07.080
  • WE CONTINUE IN OUR SERIES IN
  • 00:02:07.080 --> 00:02:08.140
  • OUR TEACHING ON RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:09.230
  • LAST WEEK,
  • 00:02:09.230 --> 00:02:10.140
  • WE LOOKED AT THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:02:10.140 --> 00:02:11.120
  • OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:12.060
  • TONIGHT, WE LOOK AT THE
  • 00:02:12.060 --> 00:02:12.280
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT EXISTS
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:14.110
  • BETWEEN PARENTS AND CHILDREN,
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:16.030
  • SPECIFICALLY TEENAGERS.
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:18.010
  • AND THIS IS A VERY NATURAL
  • 00:02:18.010 --> 00:02:19.040
  • PROGRESSION BECAUSE THIS IS
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:20.220
  • WHAT COMES AS THE RESULT OF
  • 00:02:20.220 --> 00:02:22.090
  • MARRIAGE, IS CHILDREN.
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:23.150
  • REGARDLESS OF POPULAR OPINION,
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:24.250
  • IT'S NOT PETS; IT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:26.020
  • KIDS.
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:27.040
  • AND YOU ARE INDEED TO BE
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:29.160
  • FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY.
  • 00:02:29.160 --> 00:02:31.130
  • AND WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN, NOT
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.030
  • ONLY DO YOU HAVE BLESSINGS, BUT
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.140
  • YOU HAVE CHALLENGES, BECAUSE
  • 00:02:34.140 --> 00:02:37.110
  • WHILE THEY ARE YOUR LITTLE
  • 00:02:37.110 --> 00:02:38.090
  • ANGELS WHEN THEY'RE BORN, THE
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:39.190
  • TALLER THEY GET, THE SHORTER
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:41.010
  • THEIR WINGS GET.
  • 00:02:41.010 --> 00:02:42.170
  • AND SO IT'S IMPERATIVE THAT
  • 00:02:42.170 --> 00:02:45.000
  • YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:46.060
  • HAS TO SAY ABOUT YOUR ROLE, NOT
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:49.030
  • ONLY AS A CHILD, BUT YOUR ROLE
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:52.010
  • ALSO AS A PARENT, AND HOW THOSE
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:54.260
  • APPLY IN THE CONTEXT OF YOUR
  • 00:02:54.260 --> 00:02:56.280
  • EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:57.280
  • SO OUR INTERVIEW TONIGHT IS AN
  • 00:02:57.280 --> 00:02:59.210
  • INDIVIDUAL, WHO NOT ONLY HAS
  • 00:02:59.210 --> 00:03:01.030
  • EXPERIENCE AS A TEENAGER BUT HE
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:03.190
  • RAISED FIVE TEENAGERS.
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:05.150
  • AND I CAN SPEAK TO THE PRODUCT
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:07.210
  • THAT HE PRODUCED, BECAUSE I ARE
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:09.190
  • ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:10.180
  • AND UH, IF YOU WOULD, PLEASE,
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:12.210
  • MAKE WELCOME OUR INTERVIEW
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:13.290

  • I'M OUT OF REACH, SO --
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:54.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:54.060 --> 00:03:55.160
  • 1940 IS THE YEAR THAT GOD

  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:01.060
  • 1953, YOU BECOME A TEENAGER.
  • 00:04:01.100 --> 00:04:04.100
  • AND YOU WERE AT HOME UNTIL YOU
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:05.200
  • WERE ALMOST 18 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:04:05.200 --> 00:04:07.160

  • BIRTHDAY, YOU LEFT HOME FOR
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:10.120
  • BIBLE SCHOOL.
  • 00:04:10.120 --> 00:04:11.130
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: RIGHT.
  • 00:04:11.130 --> 00:04:12.120
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: WHAT WAS
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:13.060
  • LIFE LIKE BEING A TEENAGER IN

  • THE 50'S IN AMERICA?
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:17.020
  • AND WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:18.040
  • STRUGGLE AS A TEENAGER IN YOUR
  • 00:04:18.040 --> 00:04:20.130
  • PARENT'S HOME?
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:22.130
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: LET ME START
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:23.060
  • AT THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:24.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:24.170 --> 00:04:25.250
  • BECAUSE BETWEEN MY 12TH AND
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:27.210
  • 13TH YEAR WAS A PARADIGM SHIFT
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:31.050
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:32.260
  • THE FIRST TWELVE YEARS OF MY
  • 00:04:32.260 --> 00:04:33.270
  • LIFE, MY FATHER PASTORED A
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:35.200
  • CHURCH THAT WAS IN THE
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:37.110
  • COUNTRY.
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:38.290
  • AND I WAS THE FIRST PERSON IN
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:42.110
  • MY FAMILY BORN IN A HOSPITAL
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:44.270
  • AND THAT WAS THE METROPLEX OF
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:46.160
  • GOOSE CREEK, TEXAS, NOW KNOWN
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:49.090
  • AS BAYTOWN.
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.240
  • MY FATHER GAVE ME A RIFLE WHEN
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.190
  • I WAS SIX YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:54.240
  • AND MY BROTHER AND I, WHO WAS
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:56.020
  • FIVE YEARS OLDER, WOULD GO INTO
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:57.160
  • THE WOODS AND GO HUNTING.
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:04:59.200
  • MY PARENTS THOUGHT NOTHING
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:00.280
  • ABOUT US GOING INTO THE WOODS
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:03.010
  • WITH LOADED GUNS AND HUNTING
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:04.120
  • UNTIL DARK AND COMING BACK.
  • 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:06.170
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO THEY
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:07.120
  • WERE SECOND AMENDMENT
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:08.080
  • SUPPORTERS?
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:10.100
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: NO ONE
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:11.060
  • ARGUED ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:11.180
  • I MEAN WE HAD RATIONAL PEOPLE
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:13.160
  • IN WASHINGTON THEN.
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:14.220
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:20.060
  • AND IT WAS FUN.
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:24.260
  • THERE WAS OUR HOUSE AND CHURCH
  • 00:05:24.260 --> 00:05:27.250
  • AND SCHOOL.
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.050
  • AND THAT'S BASICALLY THE FIRST
  • 00:05:29.140 --> 00:05:32.140
  • SIX YEARS WERE CONSUMED WITH
  • 00:05:32.140 --> 00:05:34.220
  • THE WAR.
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:35.180
  • PEOPLE DIDN'T TAKE VACATIONS,
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.290
  • BECAUSE YOU HAD GAS RATIONS.
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:40.250
  • YOU GOT A BOOK THAT SAID YOU
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:42.150
  • CAN BUY THIS MUCH GAS.
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.160
  • AND WHEN YOU SPEND UP THOSE
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:45.210
  • STAMPS, YOU CAN'T DRIVE
  • 00:05:45.210 --> 00:05:47.100
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.190
  • YOU HAD SUGAR RATIONS.
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:49.290
  • YOU HAD RUBBER RATIONS.
  • 00:05:49.290 --> 00:05:51.190
  • MANY PEOPLE HAD THEIR CARS
  • 00:05:51.190 --> 00:05:53.210
  • JACKED UP ON BLOCKS, BECAUSE
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:56.240
  • THEY COULDN'T GET TIRES FOR
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:58.070
  • THOSE CARS.
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.200
  • THE MILITARY GOT EVERYTHING.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:02.180
  • AND THEN -- BUT LIFE FOR US WAS
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:05.020
  • WONDERFUL BECAUSE THE CHURCH
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:07.110
  • HOUSE, THE SCHOOLHOUSE, AND OUR
  • 00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:09.060
  • HOUSE, AND THAT WAS IT.
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:11.050
  • THEN AT THE AGE OF TWELVE, MY
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:13.140
  • FATHER ACCEPTED A CHURCH IN
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:15.180
  • HOUSTON, TEXAS.
  • 00:06:15.180 --> 00:06:17.170
  • WE MOVED INTO A HOUSE THAT WAS
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:18.290
  • ON A CITY LOT.
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.240
  • I COULD HEAR THE NEIGHBORS
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:22.000
  • TALKING IN THEIR LIVING ROOM,
  • 00:06:22.000 --> 00:06:24.180
  • LAYING IN MY BEDROOM.
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.190
  • WE DIDN'T LIVE ON ACREAGE.
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:29.130
  • A BABY COULD THROW A BASEBALL
  • 00:06:29.130 --> 00:06:31.040
  • ACROSS OUR LOT.
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:33.090
  • AND I WENT TO A MIDDLE SCHOOL
  • 00:06:35.270 --> 00:06:38.270
  • THAT HAD MORE PEOPLE IN IT THAN
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:40.200
  • WE HAD IN OUR WHOLE COUNTRY
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:42.270
  • TOWN, WHATEVER YOU WOULD CALL
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.020
  • IT.
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:45.050
  • I DISCOVERED SOMETHING CALLED
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:46.180
  • "ORGANIZED SPORTS."
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:48.180
  • YOU DIDN'T HAVE THAT IN THE
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:50.020
  • COUNTRY AT ALL.
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:52.020
  • YOU HAVE TO CALL PEOPLE
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:54.180
  • TOGETHER TO PLAY.
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:56.130
  • THE BIGGEST COUNTRY BOY GOT TO
  • 00:06:56.130 --> 00:06:57.280
  • THROW THE BALL.
  • 00:06:57.280 --> 00:06:58.290
  • AND IT WAS NOT MUCH FUN FOR THE
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:01.000
  • REST OF YOU.
  • 00:07:01.000 --> 00:07:02.120
  • SO I DISCOVERED SOMETHING
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:03.290
  • CALLED "LITTLE LEAGUE
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:05.230
  • BASEBALL."
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:06.170
  • I FELL IN LOVE WITH THAT.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.170
  • THEY HAD UNIFORMS.
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:09.230
  • THEY HAD A BASEBALL FIELD.
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:11.180
  • THEY HAD UMPIRES.
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:12.220
  • THEY HAD LIGHTS.
  • 00:07:12.220 --> 00:07:14.140
  • I THOUGHT I'D DIED AND GONE TO
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.250
  • HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:15.250 --> 00:07:17.030
  • AND I JUST WENT AFTER SPORTS
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:21.070
  • WIDE OPEN.
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:23.160
  • IT REALLY WASN'T A PROBLEM.
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:25.180
  • I STARTED CALLING FOUR SPORTS.
  • 00:07:25.180 --> 00:07:27.210
  • IT WASN'T A PROBLEM UNTIL I GOT
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:29.080
  • IN THE NINTH GRADE AND MADE
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:30.170
  • THE ALL-CITY FOOTBALL TEAM AND
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:32.280
  • MY NAME CAME OUT IN THE PAPER.
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:35.280
  • TRANSPOSITION TO THE FACTOR
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:37.270
  • THAT MY FATHER WAS A LEGALIST
  • 00:07:37.270 --> 00:07:40.170
  • PENTECOSTAL PREACHER.
  • 00:07:40.170 --> 00:07:42.170
  • AND THAT DENOMINATION HAD 101
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:45.060
  • WAYS YOU COULD GO TO HELL IN
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:47.060
  • YOUR OWN HOUSE WITH THE DOOR
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:48.140
  • LOCKED.
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:49.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:49.140 --> 00:07:51.030
  • YOU COULDN'T GO TO MOVIES.
  • 00:07:51.030 --> 00:07:52.210
  • YOU COULDN'T PLAY CARDS.
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.090
  • YOU COULDN'T PLAY DOMINOS.
  • 00:07:54.090 --> 00:07:56.040
  • YOU COULDN'T PLAY MONOPOLY,
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.140
  • BECAUSE DICE WERE INVOLVED, AND
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:07:59.190
  • GOD KNOWS YOU'D GROW UP TO
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:01.030
  • BE A PROFESSIONAL GAMBLER, SO
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:03.010
  • THEY DIDN'T LET YOU DO THAT.
  • 00:08:03.010 --> 00:08:04.140
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: BUT YOU
  • 00:08:04.140 --> 00:08:05.200
  • COULD HAVE A 22 AND GO HUNTING
  • 00:08:05.200 --> 00:08:06.240
  • AT SIX?
  • 00:08:06.240 --> 00:08:07.180
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: NO PROBLEM.
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:08.140
  • NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER.
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.270
  • REALLY ON THE FLIP SIDE OF
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.030
  • THIS, MY MOTHER COULD CARE LESS
  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:13.130
  • IF YOU GOT IN A FIST FIGHT,
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:15.150
  • JUST AS LONG AS THEY HIT YOU
  • 00:08:15.150 --> 00:08:16.220
  • FIRST.
  • 00:08:16.220 --> 00:08:17.210
  • YOU CERTAINLY CAN'T GO TO A
  • 00:08:17.210 --> 00:08:19.070
  • SCHOOL DANCE BECAUSE YOU'D LOSE
  • 00:08:19.070 --> 00:08:20.210
  • YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:08:20.210 --> 00:08:22.100
  • YOU COULDN'T GO TO A MOVIE.
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:23.200
  • COULDN'T PLAY CARDS, BUT YOU
  • 00:08:23.200 --> 00:08:25.100
  • COULD FISTFIGHT TILL THE WORLD
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:27.060
  • LOOKED LEVEL.
  • 00:08:27.060 --> 00:08:28.020
  • THAT'S THE HONEST TRUTH.
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:30.010
  • SO I REALLY HAD NO PROBLEM
  • 00:08:30.010 --> 00:08:32.190
  • UNTIL I REACHED THIS STAGE.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:35.070
  • AND THEN WHEN SOME OF THE
  • 00:08:35.070 --> 00:08:36.270
  • PEOPLE IN MY FATHER'S CHURCH
  • 00:08:36.270 --> 00:08:38.190
  • GOT THE IDEA I WAS THE DEVIL'S
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:40.220
  • POSTER CHILD FOR PLAYING
  • 00:08:40.220 --> 00:08:42.250
  • SPORTS, THAT'S WHEN THE WAR
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:45.230
  • STARTED BETWEEN MY FATHER AND
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:47.200
  • I.
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:49.020
  • FIRST, HE SAID, YOU CAN'T PLAY
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:51.060
  • SPORTS.
  • 00:08:51.060 --> 00:08:52.180
  • AND I SAID, I WILL LEAVE HOME,
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:54.170
  • BUT I'M GOING TO PLAY SPORTS.
  • 00:08:54.190 --> 00:08:57.190
  • THEY KNOCKED IT DOWN FROM
  • 00:08:57.190 --> 00:09:00.050
  • BASEBALL AND FOOTBALL TO JUST
  • 00:09:00.050 --> 00:09:02.050
  • ONE GAME OF FOOTBALL.
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:04.290
  • THE FIRST TEAM I PLAYED ON, IN
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:06.110
  • HOUSTON, WON THE CITY
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:07.110
  • CHAMPIONSHIP.
  • 00:09:07.110 --> 00:09:08.290
  • OUR REWARD WAS GOING TO DALLAS
  • 00:09:08.290 --> 00:09:11.170
  • TO THE STATE FAIR.
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:15.120
  • IT WAS A WONDERFUL THING.
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:16.070
  • I'D NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE
  • 00:09:16.070 --> 00:09:17.250
  • THAT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:19.200
  • AND WE STAYED OVER SUNDAY.
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:24.140
  • MISSING CHURCH ON SUNDAY WAS A
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:26.020
  • CARDINAL SIN WITH MY FATHER.
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:29.060
  • MY PUNISHMENT FOR GOING AND
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.130
  • MISSING ONE SUNDAY WAS TO MISS
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:34.000
  • THE NEXT BASEBALL SEASON IN ITS
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:36.140
  • ENTIRETY, BECAUSE I DIDN'T GO
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:39.090
  • THAT ONE SUNDAY.
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:40.290
  • IT DIDN'T MAKE ME LOVE GOD; IT
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:42.220
  • MADE ME HATE THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:42.220 --> 00:09:45.050
  • AND MY FATHER AND I WERE AT A
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:47.240
  • WAR.
  • 00:09:47.240 --> 00:09:49.030
  • WE DID NOT SPEAK TO EACH OTHER
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:51.080
  • FOR MONTHS ON IN FROM MY NINTH
  • 00:09:51.080 --> 00:09:54.060
  • GRADE UNTIL THE TIME I WAS
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:56.180
  • CONVERTED WHEN I WAS A SENIOR
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:58.160
  • IN HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:10:00.290
  • THEY DIDN'T ALLOW A TELEVISION
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:02.150
  • IN MY HOME UNTIL I WAS 17.
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:05.030
  • AND IT WAS ON THAT TELEVISION
  • 00:10:05.030 --> 00:10:06.160
  • THAT I HEARD ABOUT WEST POINT.
  • 00:10:06.160 --> 00:10:09.070
  • AND I MADE IT MY BUSINESS TO
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:10.220
  • FIND OUT HOW YOU GOT IN THERE,
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.140
  • TOOK THE TEST, AND RECEIVED AN
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.140
  • APPOINTMENT TO WEST POINT BY
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:15.250
  • SENATOR LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON.
  • 00:10:15.250 --> 00:10:17.290
  • THAT WAS MY TICKET OUT OF
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:19.240
  • THAT --
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:20.240
  • WHAT I CALLED, "A HELL HOLE."
  • 00:10:20.240 --> 00:10:22.110
  • I TOLD MY MOTHER, WHEN I WALK
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:24.200
  • OUT OF CHURCH WHEN I'M 18 --
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:26.270
  • AND I HAD TO GO TO CHURCH EVERY
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:28.100
  • TIME THE DOORS WERE OPENED.
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.050
  • AND THEY HAD THOSE REVIVALS
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.190
  • THAT LASTED THREE WEEKS.
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:33.210
  • WE DIDN'T SIN, BECAUSE WE
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:34.270
  • DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO SIN.
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:36.110
  • WE WERE TOO TIRED TO SIN.
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:38.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:39.190
  • AND I SAT ON THE BACK ROW, AS
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.260
  • CLOSE TO THE BACK DOOR AS I
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:43.030
  • COULD GET.
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:44.150
  • AND HAD A MECHANICAL DRAWING
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:46.220
  • BOARD ON MY LEGS THAT I WROTE
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:49.080
  • ENGLISH THEMES AND QUADRATIC
  • 00:10:49.080 --> 00:10:50.270
  • EQUATIONS, AND DID ALL MY
  • 00:10:50.270 --> 00:10:52.070
  • HOMEWORK, AND STUFFED IT IN THE
  • 00:10:52.070 --> 00:10:54.020
  • BRIEFCASE, WAITING FOR THE
  • 00:10:54.020 --> 00:10:55.090
  • PREACHER TO SHUT DOWN SO I
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:56.240
  • COULD GO HOME AND GO TO BED.
  • 00:10:56.240 --> 00:10:58.220
  • THAT WAS WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE.
  • 00:10:58.220 --> 00:11:00.150
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: NOW IF
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.240
  • YOU CAN DO ALGEBRA DURING A
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:02.290
  • PENTECOSTAL REVIVAL SERVICE,
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.000
  • YOU CAN CONCENTRATE.
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:05.110
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: I LEARNED
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:06.100
  • HOW TO FOCUS.
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:06.280
  • I WILL GUARANTEE YOU THAT.
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:08.190
  • SO WHEN I GOT THE APPOINTMENT
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:11.170
  • TO WEST POINT, I SAID, I'M SET.
  • 00:11:11.170 --> 00:11:13.290
  • I AM OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:16.040
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: NOW HOW
  • 00:11:16.040 --> 00:11:17.030
  • DID THAT GO WITH YOUR MOTHER?
  • 00:11:17.030 --> 00:11:19.090
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: WHEN I
  • 00:11:19.090 --> 00:11:20.220
  • WALKED IN WITH THE APPOINTMENT,
  • 00:11:20.220 --> 00:11:21.210
  • I KNEW WHAT IT WAS BEFORE I
  • 00:11:21.210 --> 00:11:23.220
  • OPENED IT, BECAUSE THEY DON'T
  • 00:11:23.220 --> 00:11:24.200
  • SEND APPOINTMENTS TO LOSERS.
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.230
  • I MEAN IF YOU DON'T GET -- WHAT
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:28.130
  • I MEAN, IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:29.130
  • NOMINATED, YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:11:29.130 --> 00:11:31.250
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: THEY
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:32.260
  • DON'T SEND A REJECTION LETTER.
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:33.210
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THAT'S IT.
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:34.100
  • THAT'S THE RIGHT WORD; YEAH.
  • 00:11:34.100 --> 00:11:36.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:11:36.030 --> 00:11:37.150
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: TO THOSE
  • 00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:38.190
  • OF YOU, WHO NEVER GOT ONE,
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:39.170
  • YOU'RE NOT LOSERS; YOU JUST
  • 00:11:39.170 --> 00:11:40.200
  • DIDN'T GET APPOINTED.
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:41.080
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: YEAH.
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:42.050
  • SO I TOLD -- I WAVED THIS,
  • 00:11:43.180 --> 00:11:46.180
  • AND SAID, THIS IS MY TICKET OUT
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:48.030
  • OF HERE.
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:48.250
  • I SAID, WHEN I'M GONE, I WILL
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:51.030
  • NEVER DARKEN THE DOOR OF A
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:53.120
  • CHURCH AS LONG AS I LIVE.
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:56.100
  • RULES IS WHAT YOU CALL
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:12:00.060
  • SPIRITUALITY, I WILL NEVER BE
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:03.060
  • LIKE YOU.
  • 00:12:03.060 --> 00:12:05.060
  • AND SHE KNEW I MEANT IT TO THE
  • 00:12:05.060 --> 00:12:07.110
  • BONE.
  • 00:12:07.110 --> 00:12:09.200
  • AND SHE DIDN'T SAY ONE WORD OF
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:11.210
  • RESISTANCE, BECAUSE SHE KNEW
  • 00:12:11.210 --> 00:12:14.110
  • THAT WOULD LOCK ME IN TO DO IT
  • 00:12:14.110 --> 00:12:17.040
  • COME HELL OR HIGH WATER.
  • 00:12:17.040 --> 00:12:19.020
  • AND SHE GOT ALL OF THE WOMEN IN
  • 00:12:19.020 --> 00:12:20.160
  • THE CHURCH, AND I MEAN ALL OF
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:21.290
  • THEM, PRAYING THAT I WOULD GET
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:24.000
  • SAVED.
  • 00:12:24.000 --> 00:12:25.210
  • AND THAT WAS THE THING.
  • 00:12:25.270 --> 00:12:28.270
  • GOD INTERVENED IN MY LIFE ON A
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:32.020
  • THURSDAY NIGHT IN ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:12:32.020 --> 00:12:33.160
  • ETERNALLY LONG REVIVALS.
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:36.060
  • I WAS ON THE BACKSEAT WAITING
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:37.250
  • FOR THE PREACHER TO SHUT UP.
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:40.070
  • I COULDN'T TELL YOU WHAT HE
  • 00:12:40.070 --> 00:12:41.060
  • SAID, WHAT HE PREACHED ABOUT.
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:43.120
  • I CAN HARDLY REMEMBER WHO HE
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:44.170
  • WAS.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:46.000
  • BUT AT THAT MOMENT IN TIME, IT
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:48.290
  • WAS LIKE A --
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:51.210
  • PAUL ON THE DAMASCUS ROAD.
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:54.110
  • I HAD A DESIRE TO KNOW THE LORD
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:57.270
  • THAT WAS AS POWERFUL, MORE
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:13:01.120
  • POWERFUL THAN THE RAGE AND
  • 00:13:01.120 --> 00:13:04.040
  • RESENTMENT THAT WAS IN ME FOR
  • 00:13:04.040 --> 00:13:06.200
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:08.020
  • AND I WALKED FORWARD AND
  • 00:13:08.020 --> 00:13:09.170
  • RECEIVED THE LORD.
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.100
  • FIVE DAYS LATER, CHECKED OUT OF
  • 00:13:11.100 --> 00:13:12.170
  • HIGH SCHOOL; TEN DAYS LATER,
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:14.030
  • WAS IN BIBLE COLLEGE;
  • 00:13:14.030 --> 00:13:15.280
  • TWO MONTHS LATER, STARTED
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:17.020
  • PREACHING.
  • 00:13:17.020 --> 00:13:18.140
  • BUT MY GREATEST PROBLEM AS A
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:20.010
  • TEENAGER WAS THE RAGE AND
  • 00:13:20.030 --> 00:13:23.030
  • RESENTMENT AGAINST RELIGION
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:26.200
  • THAT HAD RELIGIOUS RULES FOR
  • 00:13:26.200 --> 00:13:28.270
  • WHICH THERE WAS NO BIBLICAL
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:30.120
  • JUSTIFICATION.
  • 00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:32.100
  • AND I HAD TROUBLE WITH IT THEN
  • 00:13:32.100 --> 00:13:34.170
  • AND I DON'T TOLERATE IT NOW.
  • 00:13:34.190 --> 00:13:37.190
  • THAT'S YOUR ANSWER.
  • 00:13:37.190 --> 00:13:39.000
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:39.270 --> 00:13:42.270
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: ALL
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:44.230
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:46.050
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: I'LL TRY TO
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:47.100
  • BE MORE BRIEF ON THE NEXT ONE
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:48.170
  • HERE.
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:49.080
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: THAT'S
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:50.030
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:13:50.030 --> 00:13:50.280
  • YOU TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU WANT.
  • 00:13:50.280 --> 00:13:51.240
  • AFTER ALL, IT'S YOUR CHURCH.
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:52.210
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.050
  • AS A TEENAGER, I'M CERTAIN
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:56.170
  • THAT THERE WERE SEVERAL NIGHTS
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:57.260
  • YOU SAT THERE AND TOLD
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:13:59.010
  • YOURSELF, WHEN I AM A PARENT, I
  • 00:13:59.150 --> 00:14:02.170
  • WILL NEVER...
  • 00:14:02.170 --> 00:14:04.130
  • AND I'M CERTAIN BECAUSE OF MY
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:07.200
  • OWN EXPERIENCE IN BEING A
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:09.120
  • TEENAGER, SAYING, WHEN I GET TO
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:11.000
  • BE A PARENT, I WILL NEVER...
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:13.190
  • AND HAVING HAD TO RETRACT
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:14.260
  • THOSE STATEMENTS IN MY OWN
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:16.100
  • LIFE, WHEN YOU WERE A TEENAGER,
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:18.250
  • WHAT DID YOU SAY YOU WOULD
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:20.040
  • NEVER DO THAT YOU'VE DONE, AS A
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:22.200
  • PARENT, THAT YOUR PARENTS DID?
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:25.090
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: MY PASSION
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.000
  • AS A TEENAGER WAS TO GET OUT OF
  • 00:14:27.000 --> 00:14:28.110
  • THE HOUSE.
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:29.040
  • I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT BEING A
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.060
  • PARENT.
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:31.270
  • IF I GOT OUT OF THE HOUSE,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:33.070
  • I KNEW I WAS GOING TO DO WHAT
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:34.110
  • I WANTED, AND WHEN I WANTED,
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:35.210
  • IF I WANTED, AS LONG AS I
  • 00:14:35.210 --> 00:14:37.150
  • WANTED.
  • 00:14:37.150 --> 00:14:38.110
  • IT DIDN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE
  • 00:14:38.110 --> 00:14:39.090
  • WHO WANTED ME TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:40.070
  • ELSE; I WAS GOING TO DO THAT.
  • 00:14:40.070 --> 00:14:42.270
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: SO YOU
  • 00:14:42.270 --> 00:14:43.270
  • WERE STRONG WILLED.
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:45.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:48.020
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: SO --
  • 00:14:49.100 --> 00:14:52.100
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: THAT WAS
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:53.120
  • NEITHER YES NOR NO,
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:54.090
  • FOR THE RECORD.
  • 00:14:54.090 --> 00:14:55.110
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:56.070
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: WHEN I GOT
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:14:59.010
  • MARRIED, AND THE CHILDREN
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:01.280
  • STARTED COMING, I KNEW WHAT
  • 00:15:01.280 --> 00:15:04.210
  • I DESPISED AS A CHILD.
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:08.120
  • AND I TRIED TO DO THE OPPOSITE
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:09.150
  • OF THAT.
  • 00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:11.010
  • I GOT INVOLVED IN MY CHILDREN'S
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:12.190
  • LIFE FROM THE FIRST DAY THEY
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:14.020
  • CAME HOME.
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:15.170
  • I WOULD GO HOME EARLY WHEN THEY
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:17.060
  • WERE BABIES.
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.260
  • DIANA WOULD CALL ME AND SAY,
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:20.070
  • THEY'RE CLIMBING THE WALLS; CAN
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.170
  • YOU PLEASE COME HOME?
  • 00:15:21.170 --> 00:15:23.110
  • SO I WOULD GO HOME.
  • 00:15:23.110 --> 00:15:24.110
  • AND YOU'RE FAVORITE GAME WAS
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.140
  • HORSEY.
  • 00:15:25.140 --> 00:15:26.190
  • I WAS THE HORSE.
  • 00:15:26.190 --> 00:15:28.030
  • I WOULD GET ON MY HANDS AND
  • 00:15:28.030 --> 00:15:29.120
  • KNEES AND CRAWL.
  • 00:15:29.120 --> 00:15:32.070
  • SANDY WOULD BE ON MY SHOULDERS.
  • 00:15:32.070 --> 00:15:33.260
  • YOU WOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:35.120
  • CHRISTINE WAS ON THE BACK.
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:36.190
  • AND I WOULD CRAWL ACROSS THE
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:38.020
  • FLOOR IN CIRCLES IN FRONT OF
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.070
  • THE FIREPLACE.
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.120
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: WE
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:42.100
  • HAVEN'T DONE THAT IN A WHILE.
  • 00:15:42.100 --> 00:15:43.080
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: WE HAVEN'T.
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:44.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:46.070
  • WE HAVEN'T. BUT I WOULD CRAWL
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:49.040
  • IN CIRCLES UNTIL MY KNEES WERE
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:51.060
  • RED.
  • 00:15:51.060 --> 00:15:51.250
  • AND ONE DAY, SANDY JUMPED OFF
  • 00:15:51.250 --> 00:15:54.120
  • MY SHOULDERS AND TURNED ON THE
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.180
  • TELEVISION, AND IT JUST
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:57.070
  • HAPPENED TO COME ON OUR TV
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.170
  • SHOW.
  • 00:15:58.170 --> 00:15:59.200
  • AND SHE SAID, OH, TURN THAT
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:01.110
  • OFF.
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:02.060
  • SHE SAID, THAT'S ONLY DAD.
  • 00:16:02.060 --> 00:16:03.210
  • WE WANT TO WATCH MICKEY HOUSE.
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:05.080
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:05.080 --> 00:16:06.160
  • BUT I CRAWLED IN CIRCLES.
  • 00:16:06.160 --> 00:16:08.290
  • WHENEVER YOU GREW UP, IF YOU
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:12.020
  • WERE IN A PLAY, I WENT.
  • 00:16:12.020 --> 00:16:13.170
  • IF IT WAS A BALL GAME, I WENT.
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:15.120
  • IF IT WAS A PRACTICE, I WENT.
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:17.200
  • IF YOU WERE PLAYING THE PART OF
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:19.190
  • A POTTED PLANT IN THE SCHOOL
  • 00:16:19.190 --> 00:16:21.150
  • PLAY, I WENT AND WATCHED YOU.
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:24.120
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: AND
  • 00:16:24.120 --> 00:16:25.090

  • SO --
  • 00:16:29.100 --> 00:16:31.010
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: AND I CAN
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.130
  • TESTIFY TO THAT, BECAUSE YOU
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:34.060
  • STARTED ORGANIZED SPORTS WHEN
  • 00:16:34.060 --> 00:16:35.130
  • YOU WERE TWELVE.
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:36.200
  • YOU PLAYED ALL THE WAY THROUGH

  • PLAYED TILL I WAS 46.
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.140
  • IT IS SOMETHING YOU MAY HAVE
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:44.200

  • SO THE POINT I'M MAKING IS YOU
  • 00:17:01.100 --> 00:17:04.100
  • STARTED AT TWELVE AND YOU
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.100
  • PLAYED ALL THE WAY THROUGH YOUR
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:07.050
  • EARLY 20'S AT TRINITY
  • 00:17:07.050 --> 00:17:08.100
  • UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:17:08.100 --> 00:17:09.080
  • HOW MANY GAMES DID YOUR PARENTS
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:11.270
  • MAKE IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME?
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:13.220
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THEY NEVER
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:14.250
  • WENT TO A GAME.
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:15.290
  • THEY NEVER ASKED ME ABOUT THE
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:17.200
  • GAME.
  • 00:17:17.200 --> 00:17:18.210
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: AND YET,
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:20.050
  • IN MY LIFE, YOU BARELY MISSED A
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:22.150
  • PRACTICE.
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:23.270
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THAT'S TRUE.
  • 00:17:23.270 --> 00:17:25.260
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: AND SO
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:27.070
  • WHENEVER PARENTS BEGIN TO LOOK
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:29.200
  • FOR RESULTS IN THEIR OWN
  • 00:17:29.200 --> 00:17:31.030
  • PARENTING STYLE, IT'S NOT THAT
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:33.120
  • THEY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT WHAT
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:35.110
  • THEIR PARENTS DID.
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:36.190
  • THEY HAVE A CHOICE.
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:38.050
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:17:38.050 --> 00:17:39.140
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:40.190
  • AND I THINK THE MANDATE OF
  • 00:17:40.190 --> 00:17:43.150
  • HEAVEN IS TO GET INVOLVED IN
  • 00:17:43.150 --> 00:17:45.030
  • YOUR CHILDREN'S LIVES SO THAT
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:47.120
  • YOU KNOW HOW THEY ARE, YOU KNOW
  • 00:17:47.120 --> 00:17:49.010
  • WHAT THEY THINK, YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:50.140
  • THEY FEEL.
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.160
  • EVERY NIGHT WE SAT DOWN AT
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:52.230
  • SUPPER, I THINK MY CHILDREN
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:54.220
  • THOUGHT IT WAS INTERROGATION.
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:56.220
  • BUT THEY SAT AROUND THE TABLE.
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:58.210
  • AND I WOULD,
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:17:59.230
  • WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOU TODAY AT
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.110
  • SCHOOL?
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:02.170
  • WELL YOU KNOW I HAD A GOOD DAY.
  • 00:18:02.170 --> 00:18:03.270
  • WELL, WHAT WAS GOOD ABOUT IT?
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:07.130
  • WELL YOU KNOW THE ENGLISH
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:08.150
  • TEACHER AND I ARE NOT DOING
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.170
  • VERY WELL.
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:10.160
  • AND WE'D GO FROM THERE.
  • 00:18:10.160 --> 00:18:11.250
  • BUT WHEN WE GOT DONE WITH THE
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:13.040
  • END OF IT, I KNEW EXACTLY HOW
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:15.170
  • IT WAS WITH EVERYBODY THERE.
  • 00:18:15.170 --> 00:18:17.210
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: YOU HAD
  • 00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:19.030
  • ONE QUESTION THEY HAVE STILL
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.160
  • YET TO FIND THE PERFECT ANSWER
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:21.120
  • FOR.
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:23.000
  • HE WOULD LOOK YOU IN THE EYE,
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:24.140
  • AND HE WOULD SAY, SON, IS THERE
  • 00:18:24.140 --> 00:18:26.200
  • ANYTHING I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT?
  • 00:18:26.280 --> 00:18:29.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:33.140
  • IT WAS THE PERFECT QUESTION,
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.280
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS NO GOOD
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:37.070
  • ANSWER.
  • 00:18:37.070 --> 00:18:38.100
  • YOU DIDN'T KNOW IF HE HAD
  • 00:18:38.100 --> 00:18:39.220
  • ALREADY TALKED TO SOMEBODY AND
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.120
  • NEEDED TO KNOW SOMETHING.
  • 00:18:41.120 --> 00:18:42.270
  • YOU DIDN'T KNOW IF HE DIDN'T
  • 00:18:42.270 --> 00:18:44.010
  • HAVE ANY INFORMATION AND JUST
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:45.080
  • WANTED IT.
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:46.090
  • AND THEREFORE, YOU WOULD SIT IN
  • 00:18:46.090 --> 00:18:47.140
  • SILENCE.
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:48.100
  • AND THE CONVICTION THAT WOULD
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:49.130
  • COME ACROSS YOUR FACE WOULD
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:50.210
  • GIVE HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:52.010
  • EVEN GO FURTHER.
  • 00:18:52.010 --> 00:18:53.190
  • AND SUDDENLY WITHOUT EVEN SAYING
  • 00:18:53.190 --> 00:18:55.050
  • A WORD, YOU WERE CAUGHT.
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:18:58.000
  • BUT --
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:18:58.290
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:00.090
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: THAT'S A
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:01.170
  • GREAT QUESTION.
  • 00:19:01.170 --> 00:19:02.110
  • TRY IT.
  • 00:19:02.110 --> 00:19:03.090
  • IT'S VERY EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:04.200
  • IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:05.200
  • KNOW?
  • 00:19:05.200 --> 00:19:06.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:08.180
  • AND WHEN THEY START
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:09.190
  • STUTTERING, KEEP ASKING.
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:11.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:11.140 --> 00:19:12.270
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: "I DON'T
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.110
  • KNOW" IS THE ONLY THING YOU CAN
  • 00:19:14.110 --> 00:19:15.240
  • COME UP WITH THAT'S
  • 00:19:15.240 --> 00:19:16.160
  • SEMI-INTELLIGENT.
  • 00:19:16.160 --> 00:19:17.200
  • LAST QUESTION: IF YOU WERE
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:19.120
  • RAISING TEENAGERS TODAY IN THIS
  • 00:19:20.160 --> 00:19:23.160
  • HIGH-PACED,
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:24.180
  • TECHNOLOGICALLY-ADVANCED WORLD,
  • 00:19:24.180 --> 00:19:27.090
  • WHAT WOULD BE YOUR APPROACH?
  • 00:19:27.090 --> 00:19:28.220
  • WOULD IT BE ANY DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:29.200
  • WHAT YOU DID WHEN YOU RAISED
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:30.200
  • THEM?
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:31.080
  • PASTOR JOHN HAGEE: NO.
  • 00:19:31.080 --> 00:19:32.170
  • I WOULDN'T DO ONE THING
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:33.130
  • DIFFERENT.
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:35.250
  • I INVESTED EVERY MINUTE I HAD
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:40.090
  • AND THEN SOME.
  • 00:19:40.090 --> 00:19:42.040
  • I NEVER LET THE CHURCH OR THE
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:44.050
  • TROUBLES OF THE CHURCH GO HOME
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:46.070
  • WITH ME.
  • 00:19:46.070 --> 00:19:49.000
  • UNFORTUNATELY, MY PARENTS DID.
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:51.210
  • BUT IF THERE WAS TROUBLE OR
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:53.120
  • CONFLICT IN THE CHURCH, I
  • 00:19:53.120 --> 00:19:55.080
  • DIDN'T TAKE THE TROUBLES OF THE
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:56.140
  • CHURCH TO MY HOUSE.
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:58.260
  • WE DIDN'T TALK ABOUT THAT AT
  • 00:19:58.260 --> 00:20:00.230
  • THE HOUSE.
  • 00:20:00.230 --> 00:20:01.170
  • WE TALKED ABOUT, HOW ARE YOU
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:03.050
  • DOING, AND HOW ARE YOU DOING,
  • 00:20:03.050 --> 00:20:05.150
  • AND HOW ARE YOU DOING EVERY
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:07.210
  • DAY, FOR EVERY CHILD.
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:10.080
  • AND WHEN THEY HAD A TROUBLE, IT
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:13.110
  • WAS MY TROUBLE.
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:14.180
  • THEY KNEW THAT IF THEY CALL ME
  • 00:20:14.180 --> 00:20:17.090
  • AND I WAS TALKING TO A U.S.
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:18.160
  • SENATOR, I WOULD PUT HIM ON
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.130
  • HOLD AND START TALKING TO THEM,
  • 00:20:20.130 --> 00:20:23.050
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE AND THEY ARE
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:25.250
  • THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY IN MY
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:27.130
  • LIFE.
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:28.270
  • IF I FAIL AS A FATHER --
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:30.220
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:34.280
  • IF I FAIL AS A FATHER, I HAVE
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:37.250
  • FAILED AT LIFE, PERIOD.
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:41.090
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:42.090
  • HOW BIG THE CHURCH, HOW FAR THE
  • 00:20:42.090 --> 00:20:45.000
  • TELEVISION MINISTRY REACHES,
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:47.120
  • HOW MANY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:20:47.120 --> 00:20:49.170
  • HERE AND SO FORTH.
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:51.140
  • IF YOU FAIL WITH YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:53.250
  • YOU ARE STRIKING OUT AT THE
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:55.260
  • MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION YOU
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:20:59.050
  • WILL EVER MAKE IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:20:59.090 --> 00:21:02.110
  • BECAUSE YOUR CHILDREN'S
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:03.120
  • CHILDREN WILL REFLECT WHAT YOU
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:06.070
  • PUT IN YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:21:06.070 --> 00:21:08.040
  • AND THE PRINCIPLES OF
  • 00:21:08.040 --> 00:21:09.050
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL ENDURE FOR
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:11.180
  • GENERATIONS IF GOD TARRIES.
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:14.230
  • BUT YOUR FAMILY IS YOUR NUMBER
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:17.240
  • ONE INVESTMENT, HEART, SOUL,
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:21.140
  • MIND, AND BODY.
  • 00:21:21.140 --> 00:21:23.120
  • MAKE SURE IT'S WELL WITH THE
  • 00:21:23.120 --> 00:21:25.220
  • PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:28.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:29.110 --> 00:21:32.110
  • PASTOR MATTHEW HAGEE: GIVE YOUR
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:33.170
  • PASTOR A HAND.
  • 00:21:33.170 --> 00:21:34.170
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:47.170 --> 00:21:50.170
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:21:50.170 --> 00:21:53.110
  • IF YOU BROUGHT YOUR BIBLES,
  • 00:21:53.110 --> 00:21:54.100
  • TURN THEM TO EPHESIANS 6.
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:55.290
  • WE'LL LOOK AT THE FIRST FOUR
  • 00:21:55.290 --> 00:21:57.030
  • VERSES THERE, AS WE CONTINUE
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:21:59.130
  • DISCUSSING THIS TOPIC OF
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:00.200
  • RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:02.170
  • LAST WEEK,
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:03.070
  • WE TOOK JOHN 15:12, AND WE
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:06.090
  • CONSIDERED THE WORDS OF JESUS
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:07.110
  • CHRIST WHERE HE SAID: THIS IS
  • 00:22:07.110 --> 00:22:08.250
  • MY COMMANDMENT THAT YOU LOVE
  • 00:22:08.250 --> 00:22:11.080
  • ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:12.210
  • YOU.
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:13.200
  • WE TOOK THAT VERSE AND WE
  • 00:22:13.200 --> 00:22:14.210
  • APPLIED IT TO MARRIAGE.
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:15.220
  • AND WE CONSIDERED THAT SINCE
  • 00:22:15.220 --> 00:22:17.020
  • JESUS CHRIST LOVED US
  • 00:22:17.020 --> 00:22:18.260
  • SACRIFICIALLY, THAT WE SHOULD
  • 00:22:18.260 --> 00:22:20.130
  • LOVE OUR SPOUSE SACRIFICIALLY.
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:23.040
  • AND SINCE JESUS CHRIST LOVED US
  • 00:22:23.040 --> 00:22:25.130
  • SELFLESSLY, THAT WITHOUT ANY
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:27.220
  • THOUGHT FOR OUR OWN BEING, WE
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:29.100
  • SHOULD LOVE OUR SPOUSE IN THE
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:30.220
  • SAME WAY.
  • 00:22:30.220 --> 00:22:31.290
  • WELL TAKING THIS SAME TEXT,
  • 00:22:31.290 --> 00:22:33.130
  • JOHN 15:12, THIS IS MY
  • 00:22:33.130 --> 00:22:35.130
  • COMMANDMENT THAT YOU LOVE ONE
  • 00:22:35.130 --> 00:22:37.130
  • ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU; I
  • 00:22:37.130 --> 00:22:39.070
  • WANT TO TAKE THIS VERSE AND
  • 00:22:39.070 --> 00:22:40.230
  • APPLY IT TO THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:42.170
  • THAT EXISTS BETWEEN PARENTS AND
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:44.000
  • CHILDREN.
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:44.160
  • NOW WE'VE TALKED SOME ABOUT
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:45.290
  • TEENAGERS, BUT REALLY THESE
  • 00:22:45.290 --> 00:22:47.130
  • PRINCIPLES APPLY FOR ALL
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:49.010
  • CHILDREN, BECAUSE WHETHER YOU
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:50.050
  • LIKE THIS IDEA OR NOT, EVEN IF
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:52.030
  • YOUR BABY IS ONLY SIX-WEEKS
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:53.220
  • OLD, SOONER OR LATER, THEY WILL
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.060
  • BE A TEENAGER.
  • 00:22:55.060 --> 00:22:57.100
  • AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:58.170
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THEM
  • 00:22:58.170 --> 00:23:00.220
  • LOOSE IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:23:00.220 --> 00:23:02.250
  • AND THEY WILL BE A REFLECTION
  • 00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:04.280
  • OF WHAT YOU HAVE MADE THEM WHEN

  • LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS HE HAS
  • 00:23:10.180 --> 00:23:12.170
  • LOVED US, IT'S IMPERATIVE THAT

  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:19.270
  • PATIENTLY.
  • 00:23:19.270 --> 00:23:21.160
  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THANKFUL FOR
  • 00:23:21.160 --> 00:23:22.260
  • THE PATIENCE THAT GOD GAVE YOU
  • 00:23:22.260 --> 00:23:24.210
  • TO FIGURE THINGS OUT WHEN YOU
  • 00:23:24.210 --> 00:23:26.020
  • DIDN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT NEEDED
  • 00:23:26.020 --> 00:23:27.010
  • TO GO ON?
  • 00:23:27.010 --> 00:23:28.190
  • WELL THAT'S THE SAME ATTITUDE
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:30.020
  • THAT I WANT YOU TO CONSIDER AS
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:31.140
  • A PARENT, WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:23:31.140 --> 00:23:32.200
  • LOVING YOUR CHILD.
  • 00:23:32.200 --> 00:23:33.230
  • LOVE THEM PATIENTLY.
  • 00:23:33.230 --> 00:23:36.200
  • MANY OF THE THINGS THAT YOU
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:38.140
  • DON'T ENJOY ABOUT THE
  • 00:23:38.140 --> 00:23:41.020
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT EXISTS IN YOU
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:43.130
  • AND YOUR CHILD TOGETHER IS
  • 00:23:43.130 --> 00:23:44.260
  • BECAUSE MOST OF WHAT YOU SEE IN
  • 00:23:44.260 --> 00:23:46.160
  • THEM YOU DON'T LIKE REMINDS YOU
  • 00:23:46.160 --> 00:23:48.050
  • OF -- WHO?
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:49.250
  • -- YOU.
  • 00:23:49.250 --> 00:23:51.120
  • THEY GOT THAT FROM SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:23:54.170
  • MY FATHER WAS TALKING ABOUT HIS
  • 00:23:54.170 --> 00:23:56.130
  • WILL AS A CHILD.
  • 00:23:56.130 --> 00:23:58.100
  • HE HAD FIVE STRONG-WILLED
  • 00:23:58.100 --> 00:24:01.120
  • CHILDREN.
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:02.070
  • HE JUST DEMONSTRATED THAT HIS
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:03.200
  • WILL WAS STRONGER THAN OURS.
  • 00:24:04.200 --> 00:24:07.200
  • LOVE YOUR CHILDREN PATIENTLY,
  • 00:24:07.200 --> 00:24:10.190
  • BECAUSE IT'S THROUGH PATIENT
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:11.230
  • LOVE THAT YOU HAVE THE
  • 00:24:11.230 --> 00:24:12.270
  • OPPORTUNITY TO ENCOURAGE THEM
  • 00:24:12.270 --> 00:24:15.250
  • AS THE BIBLE TELLS YOU TO.
  • 00:24:15.250 --> 00:24:18.060
  • IF THE FAMILY RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:24:18.060 --> 00:24:19.160
  • WASN'T SO IMPORTANT, THEN GOD
  • 00:24:19.160 --> 00:24:21.040
  • WOULD NOT HAVE STARTED TALKING
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:22.180
  • ABOUT IT IN GENESIS.
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:24.150
  • IN THE GENESIS OF TIME, HE
  • 00:24:24.150 --> 00:24:26.080
  • SPEAKS TO ADAM AND EVE.
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:27.240
  • HE SAYS: BE FRUITFUL AND
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:29.080
  • MULTIPLY.
  • 00:24:29.080 --> 00:24:30.020
  • IT'S THE VERY FOUNDATION OF
  • 00:24:30.020 --> 00:24:32.010
  • SOCIETY.
  • 00:24:32.010 --> 00:24:32.230
  • WHEN HE PICKS ABRAHAM, HE PICKS
  • 00:24:32.230 --> 00:24:34.270
  • HIM BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT
  • 00:24:34.270 --> 00:24:36.070
  • ABRAHAM WILL TEACH HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:24:36.070 --> 00:24:38.120

  • AND THEIR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN
