Greetings to the Living. Thank you for listening to the Up Is Down podcast and double-plus-good thank you to all who support this work. This time around I offer some perspective on the historical context of "the camps" everyone talks about. And the ones no one ever talks about.Libertarians and conservatives alike go on and on about "putting us on trains and taking us to the camps" but tend to think there were just a handful of camps in WW2, concentration camps, and these camps were shut down immediately following the arrival of the Allied Forces. While that is partly true, the fact remains that thousands of labor camps and refugee camps were built by the Allied Forces themselves, including the US under Eisenhower, for every single German citizen in all of Europe for years after the end of the war. Millions of everyday Germans, women, children and elderly, with nothing to do with the Reich, were forcefully expelled from every country in Europe and sent to camps. For years. Tens of thousands died and were disappeared on the way.It's funny to me how many people cannot connect the dots of history together and arrive at the obvious conclusion that the same victors of the conflict decide who goes where and when upon redrawing the borders of the newly acquired geography and in every case mobilize that effort immediately.It's even more funny to me how many fweeedom loving Americans simply ignore the history of not just these scenarios, but also bury their heads in goods and services when it comes to the history of the entire "civilized" world fueled by endless and constant bloodshed and ethnic cleansing. How does anyone think borders get drawn anyway? Negotiations over golf following a nice tea?Obviously we Americans would never engage in genocide and the ethnic cleansing that follows.Relevant Links:German Expulsion From Europe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyWx4p4hiaYhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8SdcFFK1N0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWFeKPpVVJ4Some Revisionist History (a very looooong documentary, 6hrs)https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=WWII+revisionist+history+greatest+story+never+told&&view=detail&mid=5C989644272E55D549235C989644272E55D54923&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=/videos/search?q=WWII+revisionist+history+greatest+story+never+told&qs=n&form=QBVR&sp=-1&pq=wwii+revisionist+history+greatest+story+never+told&sc=0-50&sk=&cvid=B4F47B79938D492B8BFD296A0B405CD7***Executive Producers Ep. 121 Up Is Down***Blair NeumanMy Aunt Patty***Associate Exec.

Pastor Bill: [0:03] Hello and welcome to season 3 episode 58 of the Berean Manifesto; Faith, Hope, and Love for the modern Christian. I'm Pastor Bill, and I'm joined by Pastor Newms. I'm in Texas where it has been in the 30s today I'm not sure that it got out of the 30s today and Pastor Newms is in Tennessee. Pastor Newms what's the weather like in Tennessee today?   Pastor Newms: Eh…   Pastor Bill: That's not really.   Pastor Newms: [0:33] I don't pay attention to the actual number so I can't give you an actual number was. The girls wore a jacket I put my leather jacket on to walk but that was was it you know was not really cool. Just mean I know the temperature.   Pastor Bill: [0:57] Okay okay okay he has been out Biggs, he went out to go to church this morning, I think I mean I didn't really track him or anything but he wasn't on Discord and on Sunday mornings it usually means he went to church. See there, Zaydiee for the win that is today was pretty with a high in the upper 40s and mostly cloudy dark drury day which is uh thank you.   Pastor Newms: [1:46] My allergies have got me like super tired like my eyes are all puffy and like my vision is blurry sometimes like when I'll blink wrong and there was just stuff, you're like so I've been kind of. Yawn yawn yep Yawn is how my week has been um my week was pretty good I was real busy with work, we had some stuff going on and then we had other stuff going on and then more stuff so I was busy all week with that and then tired after that, didn't do much.   Pastor Bill: [2:37] So my week has been tired I've been really tired this week so tired.   Pastor Newms: [2:54] Okay we're going to have a lively night tonight I can tell.   Pastor Bill: [3:05] Mmm got a relaxed attitude going tonight so I got a new camera this week, and so that's nice it's a nice quality camera mainly because I'm retiring my iPhone and I got that you know the phone we talked about last week, you know there is a setting that he could change on his camera where it wouldn't do that but he hasn't changed it he likes it that it goes blurry all the time.   Pastor Newms: [3:36] Well the problem is if I don't if I don't change it then I mean if I change it when I do move, I'd have to go in and manually change it the 1% Zoom depending on when I'm sitting here or sitting here so.   Pastor Bill: [4:05] Change it to autofocus responsive instead of autofocus passive and it won't do that anymore it won't give you the whole blurry penis, see I can go back and I'm so focused on going forward and I'm still focused and turn side to side and I'm still focused put my hand up here and my hand is in Focus remove it down in my face is still in focus.   Pastor Newms: [4:30] That might be that might be a pro only version.   Pastor Bill: [4:34] Oh really it's in the the software the synapse 3 but you're right it might be tied just to my camera.   Pastor Newms: [4:43] Yeah I do anywho.   Pastor Bill: [4:48] Okay cool so that was my week I got the new technology your wife is upset at you for moving a lot when you're on camera but that's just you we can't really do anything about, now and there it goes you disappeared. Yeah okay then I guess we don't need to see Pastor Newms in space, yeah so yeah you what's up, so you turned everything off their newms yeah so there's no video at all right.   Pastor Newms: [5:35] I did I did I turned everything off my bad I turned everything off I know well it was it said pastor newms across the bottom.   Pastor Bill: [5:43] Yeah just a black video that says pastor newms.   Pastor Newms: [5:45] It wasn't total it wasn't total black but you know I knew what I was doing I knew I could see it.   Pastor Bill: [5:53] So the better now am I back home screen list.   Pastor Newms: [5:57] Yeah you are I'm not.   Pastor Bill: [5:58] Okay okay I don't know why you're not on screen but.   Pastor Newms: [6:02] Cuz I was confirming what you said and I don't see it so it means it's probably a pro only thing.   Pastor Bill: [6:09] Or you need to download synapse 3 you've probably got synapse to.   Pastor Newms: [6:19] Although I just killed my camera completely somehow.   Pastor Bill: [6:24] Because my camera won't even work on synapse to like I had to uninstall and reinstall synapse completely to get synapse 3 to run so that my camera would work because my camera wouldn't even run on synapse to, which I thought was interesting but anyway, so we've done our weeks and now it's time for getting another pastors.   Pastor Newms: [6:49] It is.   Pastor Bill: [6:51] Your camera is still off.   Pastor Newms: [6:53] It is Getting To Know The Pastors.   Pastor Bill: [6:54] So we don't know if you're reading your card to us or.   Pastor Newms: [6:57] Why haven't you haven't given me a chance yet you feels talk.   Pastor Bill: [6:59] If you're just if you're just going to be making it up you should be like.   Pastor Newms: [7:03] You're just you're still talking.   Pastor Bill: [7:04] What's your favorite Monopoly piece.   Pastor Newms: [7:07] You're still just talking as opposed to waiting so I mean you're going to have to be quiet for a minute for me to read like my picture are you ready for me to read. Are you.   Pastor Bill: [7:23] You told me to be quiet, I'm ready you like my two-year-old you ready yep I'm ready and your back, I'm ready I don't think you're ready for this jelly.   Pastor Newms: [7:44] Summer High summer load this doesn't even sound like a question where are if this question is already irritating me.   Pastor Bill: [7:53] Our high some are. Is this a riddle.   Pastor Newms: [8:05] No no this isn't that that was there for no reason because now did your camera just stop because you froze, why did you freeze for a minute okay so.   Pastor Bill: [8:25] But I was getting an amber alert on my phone.   Pastor Newms: [8:27] Oh so that first whole thing was it was nothing.   Pastor Bill: [8:32] Never anything to do with the question.   Pastor Newms: [8:33] Nope in all your travels what is the most awe-inspiring Bridge you've ever crossed.   Pastor Bill: [8:42] Warming that's the summer long some bridges are long some bridges too short some bridges are tall some bridges are old.   Pastor Newms: [8:50] You don't need that for the question is what I'm saying.   Pastor Bill: [8:53] Yeah you really don't you don't need that for your question awe-inspiring.   Pastor Newms: [9:00] Yeah I've never been across an awe-inspiring bridge I don't think I mean, the bridge across the Mississippi and Memphis is pretty good until it cracked in half you know alright if you lived on a farm what Shore.   Pastor Bill: [9:13] Are you not going to let me try to answer you just kind of move on.   Pastor Newms: [9:17] No I was done with that question before we even finished it if you lived on a farm which chore above all others would you definitely not want to do.   Pastor Bill: [9:27] Man mucking the horse stalls is awful.   Pastor Newms: [9:30] Anything with poop was my answer so we're on the same page.   Pastor Bill: [9:35] I've done that I've had three instances of mucking horse stalls in my life and, no more not thank you there was this um this Children's Home a foster home where they fostered several children at a time like upwards of 15 at a time, I went to school with three three or four of the kids that, went that lived at that home and I went to spend the night with them a few weekends and yeah when you spend the night Friday night Saturday morning you go out there and you do chores, so yeah like in the horse stalls that's.   Pastor Newms: [10:23] The question, Zaydiee, was if you lived on a farm what chore of all others would you definitely not want to do, so anything was poop.   Pastor Bill: [10:38] Anything with poop is just.   Pastor Newms: [10:39] Anything with just, I'm not down I'm not down we had a baby in the house for less than 24 hours this week as my friend was passing as our friends were passing through and, just the poops and I was like man I'm glad the kids know you know potty training because this was I, I have no desire to go back to that time where there is just you know six months old just starting food, poops.   Pastor Bill: [11:24] Finnick is so close to being potty trained at this point he's just so close.   Pastor Newms: [11:30] And as my wife said she does she loves babies has no problem with the poops.   Pastor Bill: [11:43] She loves the poops.   Pastor Newms: [11:45] No no no no, no she loves the babies she can tolerate the poops.   Pastor Bill: [11:55] She doesn't love the poop.   Pastor Newms: [11:56] No no.   Pastor Bill: [11:58] She can tolerate the pools.   Pastor Newms: [12:00] I think we've said poops too many times for this particular broadcast I think we've reached our poops.   Pastor Bill: [12:06] How we reach our poop limit.   Pastor Newms: [12:07] Yeah I think we reached it like the second time we said it I think that's the most time we've talked about poops since we have ever been on the Berean Manifesto.   Pastor Bill: [12:18] Possibly yeah possibly.   Pastor Newms: [12:21] You talk about least three different species of poops to.   Pastor Bill: [12:26] Species of Hoops.   Pastor Newms: [12:28] You said stalls which are horses or cows, I was thinking and said something about pigs unless I didn't say it out loud and then you you we talked about babies which is humans so that's three to four species because Stables can equate a couple, if horses and cows and in fantasy Realms anything can be in a stable so you know.   Pastor Bill: [12:56] That's true you can Sable anything.   Pastor Newms: [12:59] Yeah yeah there's this game I play, call dark and we've talked about it in the past and it's one of the next games up on our list of things to play once we get through the games we're playing right now and they released a new map and.   Pastor Bill: [13:13] So sometime in 2023 2024.   Pastor Newms: [13:17] Well it depends on how often we can actually play anyway the, there's baboons now they added baboons and you can actually ride them unless you didn't watch the video that I sent you okay and, just baboons, and I was just like and so I was thinking that might be we might skip the standard maps and go to that one because then we could experience a map together for the first time as opposed to me knowing, the map going into it like I actually would remember everything I've had a map but that's the second point I can't remember what I did yesterday little own the intricacies of a cave running.   Pastor Bill: [14:05] You're not mad you don't memorize every inch of every map that you've ever seen.   Pastor Newms: [14:09] Now I'll be like I think I know where we are and I don't, I feel like it's right over no it's not I can't I can't navigate life like real map like here map.   Pastor Bill: [14:31] Yeah it's right down the road down there 2006 have a right hand turn at the Chevy's or with Chevy's used to be and then make a left hand turn where they took down that big old tree that used to be there.   Pastor Newms: [14:41] Just take a right and then the person's like I got really lost I took a right how do you say right I said take a left no hey now you listen here.   Pastor Bill: [14:52] No you're very cluttered the sun turn around.   Pastor Newms: [14:54] You listen here it was they put up that fence to stop people from using the back of the Walmart, as a thorough through a thorough way so that used to be a way you could get to from point A to point B Because I had done it and then all of a sudden you couldn't, and I've never not heard about it from him because he's like oh it's the back of a Walmart because I did I took us like ice left here in a right here and then another left and then we'll pop right out, and then it's the back of a Walmart which is the only Walmart I've ever seen where you're behind the Walmart and can't get to the front of the Walmart from the back of the Walmart, so yeah.   Pastor Bill: [15:38] And when people come and Shop in from that side they don't want those people's money.   Pastor Newms: [15:41] Damn that was that was the no I knew where the Walmart was.   Pastor Bill: [15:50] Were those Walmart come from popped up out of nowhere all right so tonight, um we're doing things a little different than what we normally do I do have a scripture on the scripture bump about transparency so as a 501 c 3, church one of our, and I'm looking to put quotations around this because you know requirements is that we have a yearly business meeting where we let our members know what's going on with the church, and I say requirements because nobody checks on these things there's no governmental body that, goes around and make sure that churches are doing all the things that are required to do. We would never have to tell anybody anything about what we're doing because nobody cares nobody looks but we do I do rather I should say try to keep our financials going on our donation page, I've not been as good about that this year this year kind of got away from me but I did go in this week and update all the financials, and I haven't put that on the website yet but I have it I have it all updated up to the end of November, and so we're just going to talk a little bit about what we've done this year and yeah so I think I wanted to start with just I'm gonna throw some numbers out there and then I'd like you to talk about. Your experiences at Pride if you know just from this year and I'm putting you on the spot, um and we'll kind of see where we go from there. Okay so the last 12 months so we're talking about you know last December and then January through now we were at least 50 episodes this will be episode 51, um for that year span and of the course of those 50 episodes we had 561 downloads, which means we're averaging 11 listens per episode that doesn't count people who show up live for the live recording, unless they're then going back and downloading the podcast that doesn't count anyone that watches on social media after the fact like my mother doesn't download the podcast she watches it on Facebook, so it doesn't count social media at all does the count video this is just the audio just people going to gosh I can give you a, a better comprehend.   Pastor Newms: [18:40] The places where you get podcasts.   Pastor Bill: [18:45] Right but there was okay yeah your ride just the places you get podcasts. We're talking about.   Pastor Newms: [18:56] This is that Manisha that no one cares about other than us just as.   Pastor Bill: [19:02] Pandora Firefox Apple podcasts Google Chrome Safari these people that are you know getting podcasts from these trackable sources, we're averaging 11 people per episode that are listening somewhere and, in all of that we have listeners from 28 countries this year people that have listened everywhere from Russia to, should have just left all this up, Kenya so are obvious are large Chinese to the United States because we're culturally we talk a lot about things that make sense, for the United States our number two listener in the world for countries is Kenya, um and then Russia and then the Philippines and then Sweden, are our top five countries that we have listeners in which is, fantastic I like that we have listeners from all over the world and we've often said that it is not about. Lots and lots and lots of numbers or anything crazy you know like that it is all about the one the one listener the One impact the big the best impact the 10K what have I done here, I've zoomed in my Microsoft Excel sheet to where I can't find anything. It's always been all about the one it's the one person is what we're trying to reach you are trying to reach, and make a significant impact in the one-on-one relationships not necessarily casting the wide net, where we pull everybody in but making things that are going to reach and make a significant impact on a personal level, so we're good with that this year you want to wager how much we've received in donations.   Pastor Newms: [21:24] No I'm not going to try to wager anything.   Pastor Bill: [21:26] Now you're trying to wager anything okay thirteen thousand two hundred and thirteen dollars and 43 cents, which is not great compared to previous years but considering, in previous years we've had that that missions grant that was going through which a lot of it was a lot of money and we were meeting face-to-face and so we had more money coming in that way consider we you know.   Pastor Newms: [21:56] And we had more expenses.   Pastor Bill: [21:58] Lost those and then yes we cut down on our expenses significantly our expenses year to date is, seven thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven dollars and 18 cents and that includes, five thousand dollars that we invested in our Outreach to The Gaming Community, the computer which then we use for video editing and, and you know audio production and all that stuff that includes that so we've definitely cut back on expenses significantly over previous years.   Pastor Newms: [22:43] Not necessarily by choice.   Pastor Bill: [22:46] I mean we.   Pastor Newms: [22:47] Covid is covid.   Pastor Bill: [22:50] We Bob and weave with you know as things change we adjust, and so that's where we are we're saving up money so that we'll have a good amount of money so when things, when something changes and we're able to do something face-to-face we've got the funds right now we've got, just over nine thousand dollars in the bank which is good it's a good amount for us to be able to do some face-to-face Ministry, is and when we find an outlet for that things like when you and deprive this year and and the cost of you going to provide for the church was like almost nil because, the only thing the church provided was a shirt that, we provided in a previous year so it wasn't it wasn't a new expense and then we printed up some business cards for you to hand out, told the message of you are loved.   Pastor Newms: [23:58] That was it because we didn't we didn't do that we didn't do the booth this year because of the late notices with them and not, you know the moves and everything that happened with with covid there was a lot of up and down on whether it was even going to happen and then, one of the ones that I went to the main one actually rained out moments before and then they still had it by moving it to ours but it was, muddy mess the whole time and so that was interesting to say the least, but it was good when we went we handed out some cards didn't have a lot of conversation just because the opportunities did not, show themselves but had some good conversation so overall it was good but, not as much as you know when you have a booth in your able to get people engaged when you're just walking around it's a lot harder so, hopefully next year we can look at doing a booth at them.   Pastor Bill: [25:08] Well not next year we literally have to start looking into it like in a month we'll have to look into when we can register and all that to make sure we don't ya have.   Pastor Newms: [25:17] I don't know I mean next year having about not looking into it next year but next year is in you know 10 days.   Pastor Bill: [25:28] What is today say the face 19.   Pastor Newms: [25:32] Yeah today is 19 so it's.   Pastor Bill: [25:34] But 13 days.   Pastor Newms: [25:35] Like 13 days and yes bigs they did cancel the second day they didn't have the parade because it was just too, it was muck all weekend so we'll see how it goes next time we will see if Nash Dallas even has one considering.   Pastor Bill: [25:54] This last year they didn't hear before they did have a party this year with a concert but no booths know like you know, we kind of gone but there wouldn't have been a lot of opportunity for Ministry I don't want to, I'm an ally to anyone in that Community I'm an ally but I'm not an advocate meaning, I'm not the one to stand on the corner and and say you know, we need to vote for equal rights we need to I'm the guy that says hey you gonna go stand on the corner how can I help you you need water you need lunch you need you know how can I support you in what you, believe in I'm the Ally so when there's an event where it's strictly hey we're gonna have a party and we're going to celebrate, that we are this thing as an ally that's not really my, area to be you go celebrate and when you need me you let me know you need me it's that makes sense it's also why we don't go to the parade, nobody in our church is that I mean we have. Has been in the past, identified as that so it's been you know it's been real saying to us like I don't want to insert myself into your culture, I'm not have any right to be there under the guise of well I want to do ministry to you well yeah I wanted to minister to you I want to take you to the the IHOP's to the IHOP down the road and buy you a, a stack of pancakes and get to know you so that we can have a relationship, Zaydiees not wrong she said I don't which she says a lot of them need you there to show your support as an ally or a friend and that's why we want to go to we want to go to Pride, but we don't go to the parade for the reasons I said and I don't know what do you think is ADD do we need to re-evaluate that, that concept because I'm not a ship onto an island to my, I don't know what the coke like wheel is amiss as a board member if you feel like we should be going to the parade as well then we should discuss that as a board and see if we should be doing, the events and the parades.   Pastor Newms: [28:36] There's a difference there's not a lot of set up a lot of places and and and in the same way as there is in that first day normally we would just be going, to go.   Pastor Bill: [28:54] I mean if we're going to go to the parade I would think we would need a float make a you are loved flow the whole nine yards.   Pastor Newms: [29:02] Yeah I don't see us doing that no no I'm not getting on a float homie.   Pastor Bill: [29:09] Or we could get a whole bunch of water bottles that say you were loved on them and hand them out to people that are there I don't know something like that it had to be something about you know taking that Ally roll.   Pastor Newms: [29:27] That is true we could just be there there's nothing wrong with necessarily just being there and that's something we could talk about for this year.   Pastor Bill: [29:32] We can have this yeah we can have this conversation but I would like to know what we would be doing there other than just standing there and taking up space, if there's a way that we can engender conversation.   Pastor Newms: [29:49] But there might not be it might literally just be there in our free hugs and see if someone needs us more than anything just as support possibly, in my mind.   Pastor Bill: [30:13] But right now we're we're not doing a lot I mean we're doing a lot of arm a lot of desk time where we're trying to do ministry from our desks virtually.   Pastor Newms: [30:27] And not even enough of that but we've got to get more.   Pastor Bill: [30:31] Even that we're struggling to find time to do so.   Pastor Newms: [30:38] Now that's something she's better at than I am.   Pastor Bill: [30:43] So Zaydiee said on Twitch or just praying as we walk through the area since she says but maybe that's just me because I do that a lot and and that is one of the ladies gifting she is a, an intercessor she prays and she prays and she intercesses and she brings people before the Lord and.   Pastor Newms: [31:03] I find it funny that you know that's definitely her niche, and her and her thing that she does and she's really strong at because neither one of us thought about the fact that we would be doing that while we were standing there as like the main thing but yet she's like well we could be doing this and we're both like oh, well I mean, yeah yeah we could do that yeah that's a good point I think.   Pastor Bill: [31:41] My wife Chimes up she just wants to go she likes parades the woman who has never actually volunteered at Pride with us or shown any interest in going to Pride with us, just said she'd like to go.   Pastor Newms: [31:59] I think she wants to go I think she's been upset with you for years and years that she hasn't got to go to the parade I think that's what she's saying right there.   Pastor Bill: [32:07] She does like parade soon to a Christmas parade and she was just all a flutter oh that's so cool, you know like brakes are kind of loud.   Pastor Newms: [32:20] They're loud they're noisy there's a lot of people it's normally chaotic there's it's pushing and just.   Pastor Bill: [32:28] There was a in the the Christmas parade there was a group of indigenous dancers, indigenous dancers and they were playing drums, and freaked the crap out of all three of my children that I had at the parade you could hear the drums from blocks and blocks and blocks away and that's drums got louder they got nerve more and more nervous and, some.   Pastor Newms: [32:53] Yeah drums are fun.   Pastor Bill: [33:01] Groggy on Twitter says free candy.   Pastor Newms: [33:03] Gargi did say free candy.   Pastor Bill: [33:04] When you go to parades they throw out candy sometimes sometimes they try to hit you with the candy in the head. Got to be careful accepting anything at Pride even hugs gets dangerous sometimes.   Pastor Newms: [33:25] Sometimes some people not overall but some people are odd but, and we say odd because there was an experience with someone who was wearing more than just glitter she had mixed something in with her glitter, I was Fuzzy for two days but that's beside the point.   Pastor Bill: [33:48] You and Houston.   Pastor Newms: [33:50] Yeah me and Houston were both like mmm.   Pastor Bill: [33:53] That sound is that the colored green I hear what is this.   Pastor Newms: [33:56] Yeah it was that was that was that was a rough that was a rough day when it's 100 and whatever outside than all of a sudden you're, trippin and you didn't take anything that you know of that was that was an experience that day was and then you look at the person who you just hugged and they're upside down in the grass and you're like oh.   Pastor Bill: [34:20] That makes sense.   Pastor Newms: [34:21] It's not me anywho, pride is always something we definitely want to do hopefully next year we'll get back out to them hopefully Omicron or, whatever the next p is I don't I don't know what comes after Omicron I can't remember Pi Pi is what would be next actually.   Pastor Bill: [34:44] Patchouli should have the Patchouli variant that would be nice.   Pastor Newms: [34:48] It'd be pie.   Pastor Bill: [34:49] It'd be all like chill and be like what's the main symptom for Patchouli variant like you get really chill just like you're okay with life.   Pastor Newms: [34:59] So the the fear I would have would pipe I would be like you know, mild symptoms but never ending like you know just it's a low number but it just goes forever anyway so yeah hopefully we can, get out next year and do some actual face-to-face ministry again when we're not stuck.   Pastor Bill: [35:25] Right, and we want to ramp up our gaming with pastors moving forward which means more streaming time and more video editing to try to get more, draw more viewers to the channel so that we can have them show up when we're alive so that we.   Pastor Newms: [35:45] Did you clip the last one at all.   Pastor Bill: [35:47] I didn't I never even did I never clipped it.   Pastor Newms: [35:49] Mmm-hmm.   Pastor Bill: [35:50] The last to have it clipped anything we've done from Borderlands yet. Contra I don't know if we'll be able to 9.   Pastor Newms: [36:01] We want tonight there's a.   Pastor Bill: [36:04] You just you just said we should do it later.   Pastor Newms: [36:07] I meant like a later at a later Point not later tonight because.   Pastor Bill: [36:22] Oh my gosh I even started it yet.   Pastor Newms: [36:24] If we watched I think for three four episodes earlier and there's like four more to go five more to go so because the girls were busy most of the weekend so.   Pastor Bill: [36:37] I'm so tired I just I want to get the podcast you know processed after we're done get the podcast processed go to bed just want then I just want to go to bed, got to take the littlest girl to the doctor in the morning and and yeah so.   Pastor Newms: [36:59] I do have work tomorrow but I don't have to get up to take the girls to school so I really don't have to get up till like you know.   Pastor Bill: [37:08] Noon.   Pastor Newms: [37:08] No   Pastor Bill: [37:10] You're like you're like when is my first meeting.   Pastor Newms: [37:13] Like nine so.   Pastor Bill: [37:18] At least be up by my first meeting. Zaydiee has to be up for work is 67 excuses.   Pastor Newms: [37:30] Oh more people trying to get their houses clean before company comes over for Christmas.   Pastor Bill: [37:39] Yeah yeah we've got Christmas at my mother's on Wednesday and then our Sands mother's on Thursday and then, my grandmother's on Friday.   Pastor Newms: [37:55] That's too much Christmas I don't even.   Pastor Bill: [38:00] And then Saturday it's Christmas day right.   Pastor Newms: [38:03] Yes because I have Friday off because of Christmas Eve and Monday off because of Christmas Day, so yeah we could do some Daytime streaming.   Pastor Bill: [38:22] When you're off yeah.   Pastor Newms: [38:23] We're at my mom's.   Pastor Bill: [38:28] And.   Pastor Newms: [38:29] It appears we're at my mom's Friday and Saturday I wasn't I'm sure someone told me but.   Pastor Bill: [38:35] Can you can you check that please Friday and Saturday or no. Bgigs you care to comment on that.   Pastor Newms: [38:47] All right um I love my parents do not get me wrong Biggs and I'm sure Gloria Gloria is listening I'm not trying to say that I'm just saying aye.   Pastor Bill: [39:07] It just seems funny Friday and Saturday but you know.   Pastor Newms: [39:14] Yeah all right so what else we got what else you want to go over as far as numbers.   Pastor Bill: [39:21] I don't have any of them numbers to go over for the business meeting we talked about how many countries and how many downloads and how many episodes we talked about, I mean I wish we were still feeding people so we could be like we've had this many people this year but.   Pastor Newms: [39:43] Yep sadly we are.   Pastor Bill: [39:44] It's not a reality anymore for us.   Pastor Newms: [39:48] We are not having our meals anymore or 15 minutes to the end of the podcast so what else we got.   Pastor Bill: [40:03] I don't have anything else.   Pastor Newms: [40:05] Would you like to talk about the future plans thought process.   Pastor Bill: [40:08] We just did we say we'd like to this year do this and we'd like to do that.   Pastor Newms: [40:13] That's true we feed mr. groggy when he's here for the for the time, each puff is not wrong if you'd like to read that.   Pastor Bill: [40:31] Yeah Phoenix on Twitch suggest that we could donate food money to food banks, and that's true we could I think what I liked most about feeding people is that we were face to face, we could build relationship while we were feeding them when we I'm not saying that food banks aren't good food banks are needed and they need donors thing you know but it takes all of the, the actual face-to-face out of it.   Pastor Newms: [41:08] Yeah which is what you truly care about.   Pastor Bill: [41:11] That's what I truly care about is the face-to-face and feeding the hungry is a big Ministry, and we might need to consider making a donation to a food bank, before the end of the year before the next 13 days is up but that'll be a discussion to have with the board at least the what's the word, the board yeah the Quorum of the board to see if we want to do that, so I'm tired you're tired Merry Christmas y'all.   Pastor Newms: [41:56] Board meetings are boring I mean business meetings are boring.   Pastor Bill: [42:00] Business meetings are boring and we were required to have one by law. But like I said it's a roo requirement but we had it anyway so there you go, we're legal yay you can't hear that but you hear that now you can hear the little what are these chestnuts you can hear the little.   Pastor Newms: [42:26] Canceling your noise-cancelling stuff is canceling it out.   Pastor Bill: [42:36] That's a good point to bring up in our in our quorum meeting of which you are a member of the quorum, so yeah she says and I'm funny of were recording a podcast and responding to texts not telling the the audio what's going on, and which says that yes on me but wouldn't it be better to do it like not at Christmas because that's the time of year usually they get the most donations, and yeah that's that's what we are reply was that's actually a good point, and that my friends is one of the reasons why zadie is on the Quorum of our board is because she brings up very good points like that, that's not a chestnut what is this.   Pastor Newms: [43:24] As opposed to me and you who are like let's do it.   Pastor Bill: [43:27] Yeah we're like let's do it what is this your dad said it's not just now.   Pastor Newms: [43:35] Well when you had a whole group of them it didn't look like a chestnut.   Pastor Bill: [43:39] Oh they're just they're just hot glued together. Three nuts here.   Pastor Newms: [43:56] I buy one that's a walnut.   Pastor Bill: [43:58] Okay drop off.   Pastor Newms: [44:01] Yeah I think that's a walnut a pecan in a chestnut right I don't know.   Pastor Bill: [44:09] So I made a cut my grandmother made a comment about remember the old days when they give you a bag with some nuts and a orange in it at church and it'd be such a special time and I said you know what, I would still think that was special I'd love to get a bat a gift back like that and my grandmother on her way home from church today, she called me and said hey I got a surprise to you since somebody got to get it for my car she said nothing too special just send somebody out and apparently her church had handed out, the bags with the nuts and the orange and an apple and a few little pieces of candy and she had brought me her bag.   Pastor Newms: [44:50] Aw   Pastor Bill: [44:50] And I was like that is amazing I love it that is awesome.   Pastor Newms: [44:56] She is a special lady.   Pastor Bill: [44:58] She is, my grandmother's great, so yeah so that's where I got my and so what I'm doing is I'm now I've got this you can't really see the designs on it but it's this ornate Bowl, that somebody got from some foreign country and then abandoned in the accounting department at Teen Mania, so when Teen Mania closed it became my property, along with other knickknacks that were from the offices and I've been keeping cough drops in it and so I'm currently making them into a.   Pastor Newms: [45:35] Lid nice.   Pastor Bill: [45:36] You know a lid for my cough drop thing so yeah because I because I can't digest nuts of any kind so, doesn't work out well, but then we be talking back to talking about poo did we really only cover 6 minutes in all that conversation which has. Okay so there's an atheist and a little girl flying on a plane.   Pastor Newms: [46:10] We're not telling jokes jokes are terrible.   Pastor Bill: [46:11] Any atheist says the little girls reading the Bible, and the atheist says I can prove to you that God doesn't exist and little girl says oh really and he says yeah and the guy says they'll Authority little girl says, all right so I forgot how the joke goes.   Pastor Newms: [46:32] Huh.   Pastor Bill: [46:38] Do you know how a horse's body turns food into poo, no no no I don't you see it says the girl says well okay do you know how a cows, body turns food into poo and he saith is no no I don't know that either okay do you know how a pig's body turns food into poo yes is a theist is no no I don't I don't know that either in the girl says, well if you don't know anything about poo then why would I listen to what you think about God.   Pastor Newms: [47:13] I don't think that's how the original joke went okay.   Pastor Bill: [47:20] It's really a stupid joke though it doesn't have any my ADHD can't even enjoy the joke because he doesn't make any sense whatsoever what is what is having anything to know anything about the biological processes of the way these three different animals make poo have to do with anything about whether or not God exists, nothing to do.   Pastor Newms: [47:43] When you use the actual version of it it. It's funnier because you need that word that you didn't use to make the joke make sense.   Pastor Bill: [47:57] If you don't know still high in transit then you know.   Pastor Newms: [48:02] Exactly see that is what makes the joke funny but yet yeah all right.   Pastor Bill: [48:11] Mercy even by the time you get to the punch line when I was being told the joke I couldn't enjoy the joke because my brain was still stuck on the lobby in logical, leading up to the punchline I couldn't even enjoy the joke my brain was still stuck big says was no Bible verse tonight big.   Pastor Newms: [48:32] There was one but it's just about transparency Roxanne your husband loves to spread bad jokes I don't know why you're surprised by this.   Pastor Bill: [48:45] We had a business meeting and so 2nd Corinthians 4:2, and we leaned into the second half but the whole verse says, well we'll start verse 1 therefore since we have this ministry because we were shown Mercy we do not give up, instead we have renounced secret and shameful things not acting deceitfully or distorting the word of God, but commending ourselves before God to everyone's conscience by an open display of the truth, that was our verse for this evening.   Pastor Newms: [49:25] So we're transparent.   Pastor Bill: [49:26] For train transparent we're trying to be transparent now let you know what we do what our thought processes are where the money goes where our heart is, we want to do anything in secret, I need to realign these temporary teeth it's going to be a several more weeks before my permanent to come in and.   Pastor Newms: [49:53] That's that's a secret we could have kept see.   Pastor Bill: [49:54] Why would we though I don't want to keep secrets.   Pastor Newms: [49:59] Yeah I agree with thanks thank you and goodnight.   Pastor Bill: [50:01] Thank you and goodnight all right did you have any questions in chat in in in.   Pastor Newms: [50:08] We have to technically ask that in the business meeting.   Pastor Bill: [50:12] Newms do you have any questions.   Pastor Newms: [50:14] I I don't, I'd be shocked if I'd if I did I'd be a terrible vice president of the board if I waited till business meeting to ask questions, pretty bad at my job if that was the case.   Pastor Bill: [50:32] If voluntary job.   Pastor Newms: [50:34] Okay going once going twice closed.   Pastor Bill: [50:43] Did you just hit your desk like it was a cat gavel okay this is me.   Pastor Newms: [50:46] I use the backside the backside of Voldemort's wand to are we going to, church and Ang.   Pastor Bill: [50:58] I think she won't change, change yeah that sounds can say change what Pastor Newms picture on the website are we going to update pastor Newms this picture on the website from, I candid shot of him at his wedding.   Pastor Newms: [51:18] No you put the old picture up there.   Pastor Bill: [51:21] I put your picture up there.   Pastor Newms: [51:22] The old picture.   Pastor Bill: [51:24] Oh yeah picture of you from the future.   Pastor Newms: [51:26] Yeah the picture of me where I look older than Biggs.   Pastor Bill: [51:34] Yeah there it is Church Pastor board vice president everybody should go to EKK.house/team and check out the pictures of our board of directors.   Pastor Newms: [51:49] And this picture is to be taken in in 2067.   Pastor Bill: [51:52] Yes Pastor newms is picture is to be taken in 2067.   Pastor Newms: [51:59] And I would like to point out it's funny that if you press the more info under the name it has less info under all the names.   Pastor Bill: [52:12] Well the names as lesson for sure does read more nothing.   Pastor Newms: [52:15] You you you made a boo-boo.   Pastor Bill: [52:19] Well it gives you the email address if you hit read more.   Pastor Newms: [52:23] For the people that have one you made a boo-boo.   Pastor Bill: [52:29] I just never got around to filling out that information.   Pastor Newms: [52:31] Hmm hehehe.

This week on Episode 535 of Priority One: Content deals continue at ViacomCBS, so you'll see what IP Bob can guarantee to be on TV.  A touching farewell to Tilly, with the character's far future plans on the tip of Mary Wiseman's tongue.  In gaming news, some fresh and refreshed games to add to your Trek catalog, and Mudd is back with a fresh Intel in a big ship bundle.  And before we review the most recent episode of Discovery, Dr. Robert Hurt tells us how we're looking for planets not just around distant stars, but in distant galaxies!  TREK IT OUT Edited by Thomas Reynolds Not Every Loss Is Eternal By Jake Cobb If you haven't watched Star Trek: Discovery's season 4 episode 4 “All is Possible” our next story contains spoilers. You've been warned. Still here? Good! Let's get started! In the aforementioned “All is Possible”, Discovery said goodbye to one of its own: Lieutenant Sylvia Tilly. This week, TVInsider sat down with Tilly actor Mary Wiseman to talk about the episode, her departure, and the future of Tilly. Before going any further, let's get the big question out of the way: will Tilly be back, and in what capacity? Wiseman answered (unsatisfyingly) ”I can say that you'll see me later on in the season.” She continued (also unsatisfyingly) ”I'll say that her hair is slightly different and she's wearing a different outfit.” And she'll make new friends along the way!

Being less vague, Wiseman recalled her on-screen goodbyes, telling TVInsiders Meredith Jacobs ”you tend to create a found family and that's very much the story of our show, both on and offscreen, that we are a found family. So it felt really important to honor those relationships…[i]t kind of feels like...she's going off to do this thing and all of these people show up for her to say, ‘we'll still be here for you when you come back and we love you and we'll miss you'.” It's true, we'll miss you–a lot. ViacomCBS: Deal With It By Cat Hough In some not very shocking news, ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish confirmed that Paramount+ is moving towards exclusivity for its major IP franchises, by reducing the amount of third-party licenses...just like the recent buy-back deal for Star Trek: Discovery from Netflix. In a recent media conference, Bakish was asked about the third-party licensing deals and he said that while the company continues to bring in revenue for many deals cut before the launch of Paramount+, its priorities have definitely changed and that they are not likely to renew any prior third-party deals.   They are altering the deal. Pray they do not alter it further. Image: ViacomCBS/Trekmovie Bakish elaborated on this, saying, “as we increasingly transition to leveraging our particular franchises and original production for our owned and operated streaming assets, principally Paramount+…that, in turn, will create a decline in that third-party business over time as these deals roll off. I would note that as an example of that, we just took back Star Trek: Discovery internationally from Netflix. And so we now have that property globally. That's clearly a core franchise for us, and it's working.” It appears that these efforts are working for Bakish, as he stated that Paramount+ had its best week ever and best month ever in November. However, Discovery has yet to be confirmed for a fifth season. Historically, additional season pickups are announced around the time of the launch of a new season, which they did for Star Trek: Prodigy. Paramount+ Opens Revenue Channels By Cat Hough Speaking of Paramount+, it just announced the launch of 18 linear channels that let subscribers surf through dedicated-themed collections of shows called Live Channels. The content comes from all ViacomCBS properties including CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, BET and the Smithsonian Channel as well as from other sources. The themed “live” channels, streaming 24 hours per day, feature the service's most-streamed genres or specific franchises like Star Trek. Just think Star Trek Channel: all Trek, all the time.   Not like this. Not like this....Image: ViacomCBS, via Space.com Paramount+ Live Channels also will potentially provide a new bucket of advertising inventory for the streaming service to sell. At launch, there won't be ads in the channels for either the Paramount+ Premium ($9.99/month) or the ad-supported Essential ($4.99/month) tiers, but eventually ViacomCBS may introduce ads for customers with the Essential package. Through Dec. 31, new subscribers can try Paramount+ for 30 days free by using the promo code “PEAKSALE.” Quick News Roundup A Star Trek Adventures-based audio play, Star Trek: Europa, is now available as a podcast with 10 episodes online.  The series follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Europa, a Luna-class starship with a new prototype positronic-bioneural computer system and an advanced AI. The ship's mission is exploration following the Dominion War. It's available on all of your favorite podcast apps.   In other audio news comes a cryptic tweet with very few details. Coming soon fresh outta spacedock is a new STO series, “Ex Astris: The Ships of Star Trek Online.”  The tweet comes from Daniel Orrett, writer and creator of the science fiction audio drama Sojourn HQ.  Which could imply an audio drama telling the story of STO ships?  With no release date, we'll have to simply wait and see.   STAR TREK GAMING NEWS Edited by Thomas Reynolds The Mudd-Slinging Continues Unabated By Cat Hough Just in time for the holidays when you have all the extra money, a new bundle hits Mudd's Market on December 22nd!

ASTROMETRICS REPORT For this week's Astrometics Report, we go way past the final frontier to hunt for exoplanets--not just around other stars, but in distant galaxies. And we aren't just talking the homeworld of the Andromedans from the TOS episode "By Any Other Name." They're just from the Andromeda Galaxy, a mere two million light-years away. No, this tantalizing new discovery was found in the Whirlpool Galaxy, or M51, at a whopping distance of 30 million light-years. And this potential planet was found in a particularly wild system. So how do you search for exoplanets in other distant galaxies, when we've only barely started finding them in the nearby reaches of our very own Milky Way galaxy? It's a classic example of the scientific method at work: thinking about what we know, coming up with a hypothetical way to do a different kind of search, and being rewarded with an exciting detection. Now if you've been following exoplanet discoveries, you may already have heard of a search strategy kjnown as the "transit method." In a nutshell, astronomers hunt for planets orbiting other stars by looking for a small tell-tale dip in the star's brightness, that would happen when a comparatively tiny planet passes in front of its star--blocking a little bit of its light. This only works with planetary systems that, by the roll of the dice, happen to be aligned perfectly edge-on with our vantage point, allowing us to see the transits. Statistically that's a pretty small fraction of al the star systems out there. But it's been incredibly productive so far, leading to the discovery of nearly five thousand planets around other stars in the Milky Way. Since planets are small compared to stars, these dips in brightness may be only a fraction of a percent of the star's overall brightness. It works best with stars that are nearby and can be measured precisely. So the obvious question is how could you hunt for transiting planets in other galaxies, where the light of the stars gets mushed into an unresolved haze? X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO/R. DiStefano, et al.; Optical: NASA/ESA/STScI/Grendler That very question prompted researcher Rosanne Di Stefano and her team to consider looking far past visible light to another part of the spectrum: namely, X-rays. Only the very hottest processes in the universes light up in this high-energy party of the spectrum, including an unusual kind of system called an X-ray binary. These are typically either a compact neutron star, or black hole, in a close orbit around another star. Gas spilling of the star gets swept up into a disc around the super-dense companion. the inner regions of the disc get heated to incredible temperatures. A large galaxy may gave at most a few dozen X-ray binaries that are so bright we can see them millions of light-ears away. but each one is a single compact source. So what if one of those has an orbiting planet that transits in front of the glowing disk? The team reasoned it would produce a transit signature that would briefly dim the X-ray light, so they went looking for one. And that's how they found the candidate planet in the Whirlpool Galaxy, using data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. It turns out x-ray data sets are ideal for this kind of search. These telescopes typically have to sit and stare at a target for days, or even weeks, to collect enough x-ray photons to build up a picture. Those long staring observations are very similar to those used by exoplanet hunters searching in visible or infrared light. The transit they detected indicates a planet in an X-ray binary system called M51-ULS-1, where they saw the X-ray glow vanish for about three hours. They were able to rule out a variety of other factors that can cause X-ray variability, making a Saturn-sized planet the best explanation for what they saw. The signal was so strong because, in this case, the transiting planet would be much larger than the relatively compact part of the disc emitting the X-rays. So in X-ray binary systems, a planet would pretty much block all of the high energy light for a while. Image: NASA/CXC. Now I have to emphasize this is only considered to be a potential planet since confirmations require multiple transit detections. Unfortunately this planet likely has an orbital period of around 70 years or so, which means confirmation could take a very long time. However it points us towards a whole new way to search for other distant planets in the universe, and the awesome thing is that a lot of the data we need is already in hand. This research was carried out on archival data taken in other research programs--reminding us that our vast collections of research data in astronomy can be used to make new discoveries over time. You can bet scientists will continue searching data from Chandra and other X-ray telescopes for other possible planet transits. I should point out any planets in systems like this are not going to be at the top of the list for habitability searches. Such worlds are going to be flooded with deeply-destructive X-rays way past what you'd get in a doctors office. Our search may be restricted to stars a little closer to home. https://youtu.be/oR3Q7RBGmtc Finally I do have to comment on how excited the whole astronomical community is for the upcoming launch of NASA's Webb telescope on December 22. if you want to learn more about Webb, or the exogalactic exoplanet, make sure to check out Ask the Astronomers Live on universeunplugged.org.

This week on Episode 535 of Priority One: Content deals continue at ViacomCBS, so you'll see what IP Bob can guarantee to be on TV.  A touching farewell to Tilly, with the character's far future plans on the tip of Mary Wiseman's tongue.  In gaming news, some fresh and refreshed games to add to your Trek catalog, and Mudd is back with a fresh Intel in a big ship bundle.  And before we review the most recent episode of Discovery, Dr. Robert Hurt tells us how we're looking for planets not just around distant stars, but in distant galaxies!  TREK IT OUT Edited by Thomas Reynolds Not Every Loss Is Eternal By Jake Cobb If you haven't watched Star Trek: Discovery's season 4 episode 4 “All is Possible” our next story contains spoilers. You've been warned. Still here? Good! Let's get started! In the aforementioned “All is Possible”, Discovery said goodbye to one of its own: Lieutenant Sylvia Tilly. This week, TVInsider sat down with Tilly actor Mary Wiseman to talk about the episode, her departure, and the future of Tilly. Before going any further, let's get the big question out of the way: will Tilly be back, and in what capacity? Wiseman answered (unsatisfyingly) ”I can say that you'll see me later on in the season.” She continued (also unsatisfyingly) ”I'll say that her hair is slightly different and she's wearing a different outfit.” And she'll make new friends along the way!

Pastor Bill: [0:00] Hello and welcome to season 3 episode 57 of the Berean Manifesto; Faith, Hope, and Love for the modern Christian. I'm Pastor Bill and I'm joined with me today with is as wow fumble - fumble on the play and I'm not a sports guy that still said that I was fun. I'm joined by Pastor Newms, as always, it's not like he's a guest or anything he's a regular staple on this show it's the Pastor and Newms, Pastor Newms and Pastor Bill show.   Pastor Newms: No   Pastor Bill: But we do have a Gaming With The Pastors that we should be doing more often than we do. We're currently playing through Borderlands.   Pastor Newms: [0:44] Yes.   Pastor Bill: [0:45] And that's where Newms is supposed to say. You're supposed to say, “catch a ride.”   Pastor Newms: [0:50] Yeah catch a ride yeah. (with zero enthusiasm)   Pastor Bill: [0:54] Not like that.   Pastor Newms: [0:54] Catch a Ride! (hollered in a country back water hoe down voice)   Pastor Bill: [0:57] Hey.   Pastor Newms: [0:57] It's a fun it's a fun game I love that game it's one of my favorite games of all time that series of games is one of my favorite.   Pastor Bill: [1:08] It's a bit intense in certain places.   Pastor Newms: [1:10] You know it's not “a bit” intense when certain of the bad guys that have very interesting names come out how they denote Elites in that game, when they come out it's you know it so, speaking of them there is actually from gearbox Studios which is who made Borderlands there's a free game on Epic store right now, no our volume is not turned down Zaydiee you should be able to hear us pretty clear. I might be slightly quieter. They have a free game on Epic store by the way that launched either today or yesterday that you shouldn't look at right now. I know that the sound should be pretty loud I'm watching the levels it's bouncing into the yellow when it should so. So how was my week my week was pretty good okay go ahead.   Pastor Bill: [2:19] So this week we are addressing an issue about celebrating or not celebrating, um it's a whole thing and you know with the holiday season upon us and, what do you celebrate what do you not celebrate what do you do what do you not do what do you and it is this whole thing that people struggle with every year and we're going to address this, the title of tonight's episode is Mary asceticism, and so that's where we're going tonight and so I just want to throw that out there right quick to get  everybody's brain running if you're going to be following along in your Bibles we will be in Matthew and John and Romans, and Galatians and Colossians and Corinthians and Philippians tonight so if you got a. Just chilling and probably Timothy since the scripture bump verse was from Timothy so yeah so if you want to just, if you have a mind like a steel trap and can't remember all the things I did rattled off.   Pastor Newms: [3:29] Or we'll just put them up as we as we go put them into the chat Mmm Yeah.   Pastor Bill: [3:33] In preparation just you know Marvin them ahead of time so Pastor newms.   Pastor Newms: [3:37] My week was pretty good actually you can't hear me breathing you can hear my fan on I forgot to turn it down that's my bad. That should be better now you usually can't hear me but unless I'm just breathing that heavy today because I am large. Don't breathe into that you know that's going to cause nothing but trouble my mic is my camera is not wanting to focus today it is like jerking it out today don't know why, my week was good we have a go live for work going on throughout the whole weekend and, it's actually going on right now as we migrate patients into an EMR. So that's a that's how my week went Was preparing for that and, the team has worked tirelessly this weekend to do so why are you putting those on now.   Pastor Bill: [4:48] I just realized you're not in my ears.   Pastor Newms: [4:50] Oh so.   Pastor Bill: [4:53] That might be our volume problem is it might be canceling you out because it's hearing your choice.   Pastor Newms: [5:02] That very well could be the aspect, so that was that was pretty good I did get my office decorated finally for Christmas and I got my. An early Christmas present to myself in. And it's behind me which is fun so he's hiding he's hiding.   Pastor Bill: [5:34] I don't see it.   Pastor Newms: [5:37] He's hiding but you can see him.   Pastor Bill: [5:42] That's where my face is on my screen.   Pastor Newms: [5:44] Oh so you can't see him so.   Pastor Bill: [5:47] Against him.   Pastor Newms: [5:48] I got a Build-A-Bear which we all know I love, Build-A-Bear not sponsored or anything I just absolutely love them and where they've taken their company they released the 70 70th, 30th 30th 70th he's not that old the 30th Anniversary Deadpool, bear and they went with his gray costume for it which according to build a bear's birth certificate that they send out with all their Bears the gray is actually heather gray which I found to be very interesting I was like ooh, okay.   Pastor Bill: [6:26] I like the Heather colors I like heather gray Heather pink like this.   Pastor Newms: [6:31] So that's what he technically is and so then I redid the rest and put up my Christmas tree which is a black Christmas tree with at the top I don't know if you can tell but at the very top my tree topper is the V for Vendetta masks because, that works, um and then I rotated my stuff over here so everyone can prominently see the Frankie for the moment.   Pastor Bill: [6:58] The Frankie and the Yoda look almost like they could have descended from the same species.   Pastor Newms: [7:03] A date they kind of do and I switched which Venom's are out which you guys probably can't tell because they're just, Venom's but actual Venom and Venom eyes punishers out instead of x-23 and Gwenpool vandalized so, yeah so my week was pretty good just a lot of work and I was very tired a lot this week and so that's one of the reasons we didn't do you gave me with the pastor I went to, bed early a couple nights so how was your week.   Pastor Bill: [7:43] Ruff had a lot of physical pain and found out we're not going to end up getting the Acura back, it would be 11 thousand dollars to put in a new engine because it needs a new engine so we're going to have to, go and clean it all out and try to figure out how to, solitary junkyard or something because it has a salvage title so I'm not even sure we could send it to auction anywhere I don't know.   Pastor Newms: [8:14] I don't know.   Pastor Bill: [8:16] So yeah so there's that and I went ahead and upgraded my phone so I gotta, a new phone I got a Samsung Galaxy Z flip three so third generation of this flip-flop, I didn't realize that when I was getting it and actually they were running a special they gave me, a crazy amount of trade in for my iPhone 11 which then brought the price of this phones monthly payment down so low that I was able to then also start the process of upgrading money, iPad Mini 2 and I'm still going to end up paying less a month, when all is said and done that I was paying for my iPhone 11. Yeah without the trade in this phone would have been a little less than the payments for the iPhone but not by much.   Pastor Newms: [9:19] Yeah knock me.   Pastor Bill: [9:22] It's cool I got I got that new phone it's not as awesome the cameras on this great the screen super Vivid. Um and it's neat to be able to have a flip phone again I loved my Razor foot from back in the day and I wanted one of the Razer smartphones when it came out but it was so dang expensive and on the wrong cell phone carrier, for me I have AT&T when I had T-Mobile back in the day you said it was T-Mobile.   Pastor Newms: [9:56] Verizon Razor.   Pastor Bill: [9:59] I don't think I've ever had Verizon.   Pastor Newms: [10:01] Razor the Razor phone was pretty much everywhere when it was out, but the razor flip is run specifically for some reason I think Verizon paid him to do it or something at you know contracts are funny so.   Pastor Bill: [10:15] That's usually how that kind of thing goes but I told myself is that the iPhone 13 came out and it wasn't a flip phone, then I was going to stop getting iPhones when I upgraded and then it came out and it was a hey we had another camera again yay look at us we're awesome and I went nope I'm done.   Pastor Newms: [10:35] Their cameras are phenomenal but that's one of the only things that are valid on.   Pastor Bill: [10:39] You they used to innovate and now they just add cameras I'm I'm I'm done I'm over it so.   Pastor Newms: [10:48] I saw me man it was like iPhone 100 and the back was just cameras it's just.   Pastor Bill: [10:56] For a while there they just kept getting bigger and I would hold my iPad Mini up to my ear and be like the new iPhone 40.   Pastor Newms: [11:04] Yeah it's.   Pastor Bill: [11:08] Because it just kept getting bigger and bigger and I was like how big how big is this going to go and then they switch from getting bigger to just adding more cameras and it was okay we're back.   Pastor Newms: [11:18] Yeah their innovation.   Pastor Bill: [11:20] Gonna have cameras.   Pastor Newms: [11:21] Definitely slow down and that's very frustrating, and that's one thing about the Android you can't really stop innovating with Android the operating system because if you do someone else is going to, with the iPhone they got complacent because they captured a market group and like you were discussing earlier when we were on our pre call, you know you're dealing with some headaches because now you and your wife are on different OS has and there are certain programs that don't, Mash correctly and so it causes problems and that's, how Macan Android does it too. Everyone in the upside of Android is is since its certain parts of it are open source, everyone can stay current now the big thing about of course the, Androids are they every version is vastly different a Samsung, you know the basics are the same but then every company builds a little layer above it so the Samsung OS is slightly different than the. Whoever, the native like the native Google because Google does have the pixels pixel phones too small for me I'd like it because it doesn't have all the bloatware that the other phones have, that's the other thing I hate about phones is the bloatware but, that keeps the cost down a little bit so the phone might be more expensive without the bloatware because the company wouldn't be getting handed money to put said bloatware on there and then make up their profits elsewhere but that's beside the point.   Pastor Bill: [13:17] I mean as it is this phone's are eighteen hundred dollar phone. I can't imagine it getting much more expensive.   Pastor Newms: [13:24] The but but the flip developing that flip technology was not cheap and we do not have it everywhere yet that the foldable screen technology is still.   Pastor Bill: [13:38] Yeah and even the Razer smartphone it's not a foldable screen it's isn't it two panes of glass. I think it is I think the Razer smartphone is two panes of glass that then, meet up in the middle but this the Samsung Galaxy it is it's a foldable screen and if you're if you're looking at just right you can see. Freeze in the middle of the screen you know, um and that and and the fact that I don't have as much control over the notifications that it gives me, are the only real downsides that the camera the lack of control over notifications and that little crease in the middle of the screen, are the downsides to this phone but I I like having a flip phone it's, I've always wanted to I wanted to flip phone I was seriously considering getting rid of my smartphone to get a flip phone at one point because I was like I just I just want to flip phone I just I want to go back to a flip phone and tell ya. So now I have a flip phone.   Pastor Newms: [14:49] Yeah yeah and it's not gimmicky.   Pastor Bill: [14:52] As you were saying you were saying you know I don't understand why you got a gimmick phone and I was like give it phone has a flip phone come on man what don't you understand about this, it's a flip phone.   Pastor Newms: [15:04] That's the gimmick they even put it in the name.   Pastor Bill: [15:09] And they put it in the name.   Pastor Newms: [15:10] Which is fine to each their own my phone is gimmicky the note, and it's a gimmick because it plainly says note it comes with a pen and you can write on it I mean Samsung is not, super original with their naming conventions let's be honest it's like Galaxy because that's kind of cool and then it's like.   Pastor Bill: [15:35] Scribe.   Pastor Newms: [15:36] Edit it's like note.   Pastor Bill: [15:37] The Galaxy scribe comes with a stylus.   Pastor Newms: [15:40] So   Pastor Bill: [15:44] I bet they're going to come out with Galaxy scroll and it's going to be a completely rollable phone a roll it up.   Pastor Newms: [15:50] There is actually they're working on come like little like. They're not good yet but they do their screens that completely roll up and plug into stuff you know.   Pastor Bill: [16:07] I saw a video of a TV in Japan at an expo we're just roll up the whole TV I use roll it up.   Pastor Newms: [16:12] The bend yeah.   Pastor Bill: [16:16] Carrie where you want to go and I didn't roll it leaned up against the wall plug it in and start watching TV.   Pastor Newms: [16:22] Yep.   Pastor Bill: [16:25] The only hard part was the ports you know to plug devices.   Pastor Newms: [16:29] Because they have to be the downside I struggle with the curved screens that are becoming popular, the edges because they mess with my peripheral vision actually give me headaches if I use them, so I have two monitors that do a perfect rack and your brain goes your brain goes those are two monitors because they're flat but once you curve them your brain goes, is this reality and you're like no stop getting nauseous we're not actually on a Starship flying through the air upside down I think we might be know, we're not calm down no we're sick now.   Pastor Bill: [17:08] I think we might be I think we.   Pastor Newms: [17:10] We're sick now okay we're sick now.   Pastor Bill: [17:14] It's like me with VR Gerg has a VR headset and I can play um beat saber with it no problem, you just turn it on and and the menu pops up and it's just the menu and it's mostly static there's a little bit of movement I lose all sense of. Balance all sense of what's the word the thing your inner ear does equilibrium. Anyway I lose everything and I just start falling as straight fall over. My brain can't process what's going on I just I completely lose everything I'm just like don't come grab anything because I can tell I'm going down but.   Pastor Newms: [18:05] The worst the worst for me is the the VR makes me sick makes me very nauseous try to play Doom VR and that was a very very bad idea, but the planetariums zooming through space and it's all around you that sets my nausea, to the 9th degree and I end up being out for the rest of the day the last time it happened someone actually gave me nausea and, vertigo medicine to calm me down because I was so sick and nauseous, so I don't deliver planetariums anymore I figured I'd give it a shot because I'm old now and now it just got worse I used to just get headaches I have no longer at the headache stage the big big screens do it too you know your bigger movie theaters can cause that too.   Pastor Bill: [19:01] Oh man the IMAX.   Pastor Newms: [19:03] Yes from Tamil thank you IMAX.   Pastor Bill: [19:04] Yeah I cannot do the IMAX I went to an IMAX to watch a Harry Potter once because the, the museum was doing this special thing with you know how Harry Potter how real science in the real world can reproduce the things you seen are something like that you know and then we wash one of the movies I couldn't do it it made me so sick.   [19:29] Yeah.   Pastor Newms: [19:29] Yeah no.   Pastor Bill: [19:31] Alright so that was our weeks now it's time for getting to know the pastor.   Pastor Newms: [19:36] I was really hoping because you hadn't brought it up yet I was really hoping you completely forgot yeah I know I thought I was lucky.   Pastor Bill: [19:45] Okay here we go if you could undo one moment and your life.   Pastor Newms: [20:09] I can't think of anything because everything that's happened in my past, is so developmentally important even the traumas I think they're all important, even the huge mistakes that I've made in stuff without them I would not be where I am and be who I am, I often think back when asked questions like this to the movie Butterfly Effect I don't know if you've ever seen, it's a weird movie fair warning if you were to go look it up it's not something I would condone for all people I like it but that's me. But every time he tries to change one event he gets back to the present and it's just like, the world is completely different because the series of events that happened because of it. So yeah but it is a good movie and one.   Pastor Bill: [21:09] Good movie Ashton Kutcher.   Pastor Newms: [21:10] One of my favorite actors is in it the the larger gentleman who's his college roommate. And it's really funny some of the things that happens to will some of it's very sad but one of the times he goes back and he comes back and the guy is like a juggalo, and it's like uh looks why are you wearing clown makeup and sitting in the corner homey like what is wrong with you dude like what happened to you who hurt you and then they go into it and it doesn't end well but, you know it's interesting to see you know these are the things that are changed because you did one thing, seriously my camera is like not able to zoom in my face today I don't know what it is, every little movement.   Pastor Bill: [22:01] Don't you hate that you rearrange stuff and you're like what did I change specifically that's causing this problem.   Pastor Newms: [22:08] Is it cuz my shirt is green and is it cuz I tried to turn the Christmas lights on and that was unbearable it was so bright. Okay.   Pastor Bill: [22:25] Yeah I can't think of anything I would change you there that's that's um yeah.   Pastor Newms: [22:27] I don't I don't I don't I don't think things like that will ever turn out correctly maybe because of that movie that made every when I was younger cemented that in my mind.   Pastor Bill: [22:40] Movie soured soured time travel.   Pastor Newms: [22:42] Do not go back in the past and trying to change an event it will not work out how you think. Tina said she can't actually watch because it's zooming in and out so much it's making her nauseated.   Pastor Bill: [22:57] Oh no.   Pastor Newms: [22:59] So she's sitting in their coloring and not looking up.   Pastor Bill: [23:03] That's an awful I'm sorry Sadie.   Pastor Newms: [23:05] I'll try to sit perfectly still because it's only when I move so which not moving is something I am not good at.   Pastor Bill: [23:14] Right.   Pastor Newms: [23:15] So weird I can't say.   Pastor Bill: [23:20] Asceticism.   Pastor Newms: [23:21] I'm not going to try I have I I tried to say it several times earlier and even in me stumbling with just me in the room I gave up trying to say it so I'ma let you say it every time and I'm not going to.   Pastor Bill: [23:44] Lost the scripture where that where the word is actually used where is it.   Pastor Newms: [23:56] So lady asked how I knew she was coloring, and that's because if you're not paying attention to the screen that's all you, would be doing because you're not on the device right now cuz you're talking to us you don't have apps open so. You're either coloring drawing or doing art so coloring was the easiest of those three so I took it took a step yeah Biggs it's real hard my foot is tapping, a crazy amount to try to keep my upper body sitting still for this just saying.   Pastor Bill: [24:39] All right we're going to start in Colossians chapter 2 and we're going to read verses eight through 23. Here we go all right, be careful that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit based on human tradition. Based on the elements of the world rather than Christ, for the entire fullness of God's nature dwells bodily in Christ and you have been filled by him who is the head over every ruler and Authority, you were also circumcised any him with a circumcision not done with hands by putting off the body of Flesh in the circumcision of Christ when you were buried with him in baptism in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God who raised him from the dead, and when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh he made you alive with him and forgave us all our trespasses, he erased the certificate of death with its obligations that was against us and opposed to us and has taken it away by nailing it to the cross, he disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgrace them publicly he triumphed over them in him, therefore this is the meat of why we're in collusion. Don't let anyone judge you in regard to food and drink or in the matter of a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day, these are a shadow of what was to come the substance is Christ let no one can dim You by delighting in ascetic practices asceticism. And the worship of angels claiming access to a Visionary realm such people are inflated by empty Notions of their unspiritual mind, he doesn't hold onto the head from whom the whole body nourished and held together by his ligaments and tendons grows with growth from God. If you died with Christ to the elements of this world, why do you live as if you still belong to the world why do you submit to regulations don't handle don't taste don't touch, all these regulations refer to what is destined to perish by being used up they are human commands and doctrines, although these have a reputation for wisdom by promoting self-made religion false humility and severe treatment of the body they are not of any value in curbing self-indulgence. So asceticism or ascetic practices is to deny yourself of something because you think that something is bad or Unholy or Pagan or, yada yada yada right.   Pastor Newms: [28:00] Yeah and I like how the other translations translate that word. Which is voluntary humility and it, it doesn't grasp the term correctly because it's actually three different, Greek words and they like in the KJV they just made it those two words but they are not small words. Well in is cuz that's of but the other two are very heavy words and so it's interesting that the CSB chooses. What it chooses and the other ones what they choose but it definitely is those types of practices. It's what it's talking about when you look at the Greek that is. Very large one of the words is a compound word that's like that long.   Pastor Bill: [29:20] Tap enough real soon a tap enough Rose Whitney.   Pastor Newms: [29:28] So yeah.   Pastor Bill: [29:36] All right. So there's every year there's always this debate. The Pagan tree thing that people throw at a lot you know.   Pastor Newms: [29:53] That one.   Pastor Bill: [29:54] No why why would we bring in a tree you know and have these paying in Traditions in our home and and that it ended and I'm you know I'm right there with you I get it I understand that you know it's a pagan tradition that we're carrying on and then Halloween is more of a holy tradition that we've then made Pagan and, which most people don't talk about that one except for me. And I get that I see where your I see we're coming through that. And I kind of want to address two different things in this same conversation okay so we've got the holiday, conversations going on about well we don't do that we don't we don't have a Christmas tree we don't celebrate those Pagan things, well I mean good for you if that's how you feel convicted but let's let's talk about this and at the same time I want to talk about, the movement of the Torah observant Christians, that is gaining all kinds of steam and you get more and more people that become Torah observant meaning they they claim Christ but then at the same time, they live their lives attempting to keep the law as given to Moses. And so they have this whole thing going on where they're this Torah observant Christian so in this in these scriptures that we're going to look at we're going to address both. The Torah observant issue and that it's okay to have a Christmas tree. This is our goal.   Pastor Newms: [31:52] Whether it's green or black yes.   Pastor Bill: [31:54] What is green or black or pink or yellow blue yellow Christmas tree.   Pastor Newms: [31:56] Every time.   Pastor Bill: [32:00] LOL lagging so much fun.   Pastor Newms: [32:02] The continue.   Pastor Bill: [32:09] Well lady says um did I miss something from the Halloween episode Halloween is a holy tradition, so Halloween is steeped in holy traditions it's a lot of Celebrations by the church celebrating Martyrs and those that have done saintly works and it's even the word Halloween is a play off of Hallows Eve it's the the evening before a sacred day and so it's preparing to go into a holy time yeah you must have missed something, because we talked about all this unless I've missed something.   Pastor Newms: [32:59] You didn't. You touched on it but not as far as what you just said of the fact of it being Halo hallowed which is Halloween.   Pastor Bill: [33:11] Handled yeah.   Pastor Newms: [33:13] But you did you you grazed over the fact that it is a. More of a Catholic tradition of the celebration of the Saints which is where we get All Saints Day from but.   Pastor Bill: [33:30] We don't get it from them but it was recognized by them, and adopted as an official Catholic holiday some things to get some things that Catholics make up and we can say oh that's the Catholic tradition some things, they just adapted and officially recognized and Saints All Saints Day is one of those that they just adapt adopted. Okay so. We're going to talk about the Torah observant thing and in addressing that with scripture this is going to pave the way for talking about why it's okay to have a Christmas tree, so first we're going to turn to Matthew chapter 5 I've and we're going to look at verses 17 through 18. Okay for the for the remainder of this evening I'm probably not going to turn in my Bible every time because I literally typed these out in a Word document earlier, um so I have them already written right there so forgive me for not taking the time to turn to them in my actual Bible but I did that earlier so Matthew chapter 5 verses 17 through 18, this is Jesus talking and he says don't think that I came to abolish the law or the prophets, I did not come to abolish but to fulfill for truly I tell you until Heaven and Earth pass away not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass away from the law, until all things are accomplished or in the King James there the word is fulfilled until all things are. No way no that's right no it is King James says fulfill.   Pastor Newms: [35:30] It's accomplished in the csb in the nasby and it is fulfilled in the KJV.   Pastor Bill: [35:35] Sure make sure I was getting confused, okay so this is one of those verses that the Torah observant people bring up and they say you see you see has Heaven and Earth passed away yet has it, has Heaven and Earth passed away well no obviously haven't heard of hasn't passed away well there you go that means you still have to keep the law, Jesus didn't come to abolish the law he came he came and he told us that the law was going to stand until Heaven and Earth pass away I'm like yeah he he kind of said that but he actually said, he didn't come to a boss you but to fulfill it and then on the back end of that statement he says, I'm gonna fulfill it it needs to be fulfilled it has to be accomplished and the whole Heaven and Earth pass away thing, was a reference to this Jewish idea, of Heaven and Earth being temporary and going to be replaced later which is a Christian belief we have and the Book of Revelations the old Habit in the old Earth passed away I knew having a new Arthur created and that's where we spend eternity is on that new Earth. Um hey, he's tying it into this this idea and then saying the law has to be fulfilled, it has to be accomplished well the law required a sacrifice for sin ever so often there were sacrifices all the time it wasn't like once a year it was once a year but it was like, often they were doing these sacrifices. Everything from just sprinkling blood onto a goat and then sending it off into the Wilderness to down its own to actually slaughtering the goats goats the Lambs slaughtered many lambs all right so then, we're going to jump forward okay now we're going to be in John chapter 19, verses 28 through 30 okay and this is Jesus on the cross Jesus is literally, he's got Nail In His Hands a nail in his feet he's hanging on the cross he's got um, a crown of thorns on his head he's lost he's got chunks of his beard ripped out he's back is so torn up that he's, these I'm not saying that it says he has bone sticking out but there's no way he didn't have ribs exposed to the open air, it goes so far the Bible goes so far as to say that he was so beaten and so bruised that he wasn't recognizable as a human being anymore he was a lump of Flesh and Bone hanging on a cross. It says after this when Jesus knew, then everything was now finished that the scripture might be fulfilled he said right so he's saying this, to finish fulfilling the prophecies that were made as the only reason he's saying this I'm thirsty, a Jar full of sour wine was sitting there so they fixed a sponge full of sour wine on a hyssop branch now this is myrrh and vinegar that's how they make sour wine, they take the oil myrrh and they mix it with vinegar and it will quench your thirst but it's going to make you feel sick to your stomach and it's like a, I got backhanded, type of favor when the they're being crucified and you give them this myrrh mix of vinegar it quenches The Thirst but then it adds to the suffering that they're going through hell up his mouth, when Jesus received the sour wine he said it is finished what was finished Newms. It what's the aunt of his of this. Everything was now finished that the scripture might be fulfilled.   Pastor Newms: [39:48] Everything that the world the world ended at that moment it is finished oh.   Pastor Bill: [39:54] This is the fulfilling of the law. This is the moment that the law is now fulfilled this is the finished what is finished the Fulfillment of the law is now finished. It's finished the fulfill the law has been fulfilled the sacrificial lamb has been sacrificed the law has been fulfilled there's no longer a need, for the Torah to be followed. In order to have righteousness I just heard thousands of people gasp at that statement.   Pastor Newms: [40:34] No not really.   Pastor Bill: [40:34] Um not really so Howard how we're gonna we're gonna step forward to Romans chapter 7 wow I'm just my mouse is. Seven. Verses four through six okay. Is this Paul obviously writing to the Romans therefore my brothers and sisters you were also put to death in relation to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another okay we will put to death in relation to the law we died. You belong to him who was raised from the dead in order that we may bear fruit for God for when we were in the flesh the sinful passions aroused through the law were working in us to bear fruit for death, but now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us so that we may serve in the newness of the spirit and not in the old letter of the law, Paul's very clear here. You wait you can go back and read Romans 70 talks about the law is only and in existence over someone until you die once you die, you're not held accountable to the law anymore because you're dead so if the law says you can't park your car there, the law doesn't apply at the law about parking doesn't apply to you anymore when you're dead because you're dead right. That is probably not a great analogy but.   Pastor Newms: [42:30] It's not because I'm trying to think how that would fit into the zombie apocalypse and that's just not working out for for the analogy so.   Pastor Bill: [42:38] Palm Beach don't drive cars. He also goes on to talk about, that the law wasn't necessarily sin in it of itself but that sin took advantage of the law and when the law said do not covet because coveting is bad for you then sin, took the it took advantage of tempting people to then covet, um in response to the law about coveting being given okay, now we are going to go to Galatians chapter 2, verses 11 through 21 and this is another one that the Torah observant like to pull out. And they quote this this one part here, I'll bring it up when we get to it but it says but when Kate first okay this is Peter and, there's a couple reasons why it was written canvas instead of Peter here and they're all political and a church, Church politics stuff but it's Peter Kate and that's his real name Kansas came to Antioch I opposed him to his face because he stood condemned for he regularly ate with the Gentiles before certain men came from James, James is actually leading the church right now so Peter let it for a while Peter was too much of a loose cannon supposed to go over for a while and, Paul ultimately that wasn't where he was supposed to be and then James you know the half-brother of Jesus his dick over and led for, who knows how long. Um however when they came he withdrew and separated himself because he feared those from the circumcision party so Peter stopped hanging out with the Gentiles and doing Ministry to the Gentiles when, James the leader of the church sent people to go meet with Peter, because he didn't want to be seen spending time and doing Ministry to those who weren't circumcised, the rest of the Jews joined his hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy at Barnabas he's a follower man he's just Paul and Barnabas in the jail cell Paul is like we're going to praise the Lord we're gonna be said for any bottoms is like yeah, bottoms is around Peter Peters like we're not going to hang out with the Gentiles when the people from James are here in Barnabas it's like yeah bottom this is up he's a hype man he's a follower. Um but when I saw that they were deviating from the truth of the Gospel I told caphis remember that speech. This is what the tour people like to quote if you who are a Jew, live like a gentile and not like a Jew how can you compel gentiles, to live like juice and they say if you who are Christian who follow the law follow the who love the Lord. Live like Gentiles and don't keep Torah that how can you compel, Gentiles to become Christians this is ants okay so he reads on we read only says we are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners, and yet because we know that a person is not justified by The Works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, I mean you get no justification by following the law if you had a if you're just continue reading on, um even we ourselves have believed in Christ Jesus this was so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by The Works of the law Because by the works of the law, no human being will be justified by Christ is Christ then I promoter of sin absolutely not, if I rebuild those things that I tore down I show myself to be a lawbreaker for through the law I died to the law, so that I might live for God now Paul likes to pull out these confusing things and I think he does it on purpose just to get us thinking but what he's saying is, for through the law right so Christ fulfilled the law through Christ fulfilling the law I died to the law. I believe that's what he's saying there so that I might live forgot I have been crucified with Christ, this is this is why I think he's saying that you know he goes on to say I've been crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me the life I now live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God Who Loved Me, and gave himself for me, I did I do not set aside the grace of God and this is the part that I wish the Torah observant would continue reading on to right they stopped at the if you who are a Jew live like a gentile they stop there, continue reading on here in verse 21 for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing I've even heard them say. You guys claim that by keeping the law we're making Christ's sacrifice mute, and I'm like yeah Paul said that too, it's right there Galatians chapter 2 verse 21. Okay and then the next scripture I had in my layout was the Colossians that we read about. The the big point was the ascetic practices let no one condemned You by delighting in ascetic practices and the worship of angels climbing access to a Visionary Realm, right so we just read about the law dying to the law and, the law being fulfilled and now we live in the spirit of Christ listen, if you're dragging a Christmas tree into your house and putting shiny balls on it in order to worship your ancestors and cast visions of the future for the next year and actually carry out Pagan rituals then yeah you might have a problem but if you're just celebrating Christmas because it's culturally. What your culture does then no you're not doing anything wrong there, you're not because we died to the law we're no longer held to this this ideal of, don't even make it look like you're participating in that just the opposite Paul says. First Corinthians chapter 10. That's verse 31 through chapter oh my goodness in, verse 31 through 11, verse 1 why they decided to start the next chapter in for the last sentence of a paragraph.   Pastor Newms: [50:31] Bill is frozen so I will speak why they decided to end chapter 11 on. The end of a chapter and of a thought is very odd as bill is frozen so I will read the scripture starting and. Corinthians verse 31 there it comes okay so the vert the verse is so whether you eat or drink or whatever you do do everything for the glory of God give no offense to Jews or Greeks or the Church of God just as, I also try to please everyone in everything.   Pastor Bill: [51:18] Once everything.   Pastor Newms: [51:20] Seeking my own benefit but the benefit of many so that, so they may be saved and then 11:1 is imitate me as I imitate Christ and then it then it that actually completes the thought because then in verse 2 he says now which shows that, he's now starting a new thought and now bill is back with us after I've read the scripture and talked about why did they end it in the middle of a paragraph like you started before you froze like this.   Pastor Bill: [51:53] Correct so this goes into Paul's idea of yeah I was going good this goes into Paul's idea of, um when I'm in Rome I'm a Roman when I'm with the Jews I'm a Jew when I'm in Corinth I'm a you know I'm a Corinthian, he talks about I don't want to offend any when I want to please everyone because the don't want myself to get in the way of the Gospel right so, if you are around people that celebrate Kwanzaa. Celebrate Kwanzaa if you're around a community of Jewish people and they're celebrating Hanukkah celebrate Hanukkah. Right in Romans chapter 12. It's 12 verse 15. It says Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep to people around your rejoicing or having the celebration celebrate with them. Bye.   Pastor Newms: [53:09] Huh.   Pastor Bill: [53:10] Be all things to all people celebrate. Well I don't want to pick up those traditions for my family okay then don't. The problem comes when you go out and you say well because I don't I'm better than you. Or because I don't you shouldn't or because I don't I look down on you that's where the problem lies the problem doesn't lie with you celebrating or not celebrating with in your home. Where you're in private where no one can see that's not where the problem lies I'm not here to tell you do or don't have a Christmas tree that's not the whole point. That wouldn't be called Mary asceticism as the name of the episode that would be called Mary don't have a Christmas tree or Merry Christmas tree or something you know what the Sam's was. Right all right do you have anything else you want to add to this before I pull out the last scripture I was going to pull out you wanted to talk about in Timothy right.   Pastor Newms: [54:23] Yeah so in Timothy 6 1st Timothy 6 starting I'm not going to read all of it because of time because it's a lengthy chapter but if we start in verse. 10 is where a lot of people point to certain things, verse 10 is where we get the thought of.   Pastor Bill: [54:49] 10 through.   Pastor Newms: [54:57] 19 20 22 I don't know somewhere around there there isn't actually a 22 it ends at 21 just so everyone is aware I was joking so.   Pastor Bill: [55:08] I'm usually very exact and newms is kind of like yeah I threw a water balloon and whatever it hit it hit.   Pastor Newms: [55:15] All important so just read the chapter and then we'll get there so in verse 10 it talks about For the Love of Money is the root of all kinds of evil and by craving it some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs but you man of God flee from these things and pursue righteousness godliness Faith love endurance and gentleness and then it talks about fighting the good fight, and it talks about the a couple other things and we talked about Jesus and Pontius Pilate and we get down too. Verse 15 and 16 where you know God brings all this upon his time and then we get down to 17 and it's it's this is one of those situations where Paul starts a thought and then, oh look squirrel and then comes back to the thought, end up hey look squirrel is also very good but I'm just skipping it for this due to time.   Pastor Bill: [56:12] Hall squirrels are always good Paul.   Pastor Newms: [56:14] He's got great squirrel.   Pastor Bill: [56:15] All never met a squirrel that wasn't awesome.   Pastor Newms: [56:17] And he wrote all of them down which is why we don't have all of his writings in the Bible or else it would be, way too big because he he saw lots of squirrels and wrote to everyone about them which is great in 17 it says instruct those who are rich in the present age not to be arrogant or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of wealth but on God who richly provides us, all things to enjoy instruct them to do good to be rich in good works and to be generous and willing to share storing up Treasures for themselves as a good foundation for the coming age so that they may take hold of what it, what is truly life and then he, ends in 20 and 21 talking about Timothy being good and continuing because that's the end of the book so it's basically him saying bye, but the important part there that I that we actually used as the title card and what I was looking at when I was looking a lot of people do the whole money is evil, and you're like no no that's not what the Bible says the Bible says the Love of Money the is the root of evil because it leads people astray it's not that money in and of itself is evil and. I've argued that point lots of times just that verse and I know I've read it, but I had forgotten 17 which then talks about. You know those who are rich don't be arrogant and set their hope of don't set their hope upon wealth but on God because that's where a lot of people struggle, when they are wealthy is arrogance it's not that the wealth is bad it's the arrogance that comes with it that's so easy because you stopped looking towards God because you're providing for yourself, and then it talks about provides us with all things to enjoy and what's important about that to me is there's a lot of people that are like well if you have anything you should give it all up and a lot of people are the legalistic types that, Billiam was speaking of earlier that you know want to follow the Torah or want to follow you know different aspects of Old Testament law or some of them pick and choose which Old Testament laws they enjoy but they were like.   Pastor Bill: [58:43] Hey if you want to build your moral code based off of the law of the Old Testament cool but don't don't claim and preach that it's the key to righteousness for yourself and those around you.   Pastor Newms: [58:54] Yeah and don't judge others on it but it plainly says here Paul says, it's not hey you should have done this you could have done that you could have God does provide us with things to enjoy and I think that's, something especially with the term for today which is.   Pastor Bill: [59:26] Asceticism.   Pastor Newms: [59:27] Their belief the you know the full belief is you know you separate yourself from everything worldly including a lot of possessions and things and then there's the one step after that which is of course becoming a monk which starts with an m and, it's even more complicated it's Monasceticism.   Pastor Bill: [59:53] Monasceticism.   Pastor Newms: [59:54] Monasticism and that's where we get like monasteries and things like that and then another term for asceticism is self-denial you know and things like that but Paul plainly instructs us here to enjoy what God has given us not to. Hold it in arm's length and not enjoy it and so I find it very interesting that a lot of people use, and we all see this where people use a particular one verse and say hey look Paul says this but when you look at it as a whole Paul's talking about multiple things, and and so I think that's something we really have to look at, as a whole when it comes to the Timothy 6 and that's what I wanted to bring up with this is don't deny yourself, the pleasures of life that God has provided for us even if it's the little things like you know, a Christmas tree or giving your kids presents you know it's not a it's not going to stop your, religious beliefs and invalidate your salvation as some people want to teach so that's all I wanted to say and then bill can continue with his last scripture.   Pastor Bill: [1:01:15] All right last scripture is Philippians poor.   Pastor Newms: [1:01:20] Oops I went to Philemon that's not correct.   Pastor Bill: [1:01:23] Four through seven.   Pastor Newms: [1:01:23] The wrong p.   Pastor Bill: [1:01:25] Rejoice in the lord always I'll say it again rejoice, let your graciousness be known to everyone the Lord is near don't worry about anything but in everything, through prayer and petition with Thanksgiving present your requests to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and Minds in Christ Jesus this ties back to what we were talking about before we were talking about, mind your own business and and Worship the Lord right yeah I use that word again that you don't like, not intentionally that's just how it comes out when I talk rejoice in the lord always, don't worry about how your neighbor is rejoicing you rejoice in the Lord if your neighbor invites you over. Didn't Rejoice with them right, Paul talks about he there was a verse about eating meat in the marketplace and a lot of people weren't eating the meat because it was it was slaughtered while he was being blessed to a false god, Frank and he didn't and Paul said don't worry about that eat the meat, it's fine because everything that you have and you call Holy is Holy it's not defiled by their actions, your life is controlled by your actions not the actions of someone else, if they're doing whatever ceremony as part of their religion or whatever that's not you doing that even if your present you're not the one doing that they are you're responsible for your actions, not theirs so be more loving. Just calm the heck down and find something to celebrate and rejoice.   Pastor Newms: [1:03:36] At I had a funny thought. And when you were talking about rejoicing you know some people say that you know you take celebration too far. You know and no know that people like some people were like you take it too far that's that's what I mean.   Pastor Bill: [1:03:58] I mean saturnalia is probably taking it too far but.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:01] There are some things that are taking it too far.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:03] Personal opinion when murder is part of your celebration I think.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:07] Yeah you probably shouldn't do that it made me think of David dancing in the streets.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:12] David dancing naked.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:14] He wasn't dancing naked his dancing showed his nakedness which is why you should always wear proper undergarments but.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:23] Flash always gird your loins before you start dancing.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:26] We're proper undergarments but it just it brought that to my mind of hey you know celebrate rejoice and David's like I was like no not not that hard.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:38] Understood the assignment.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:40] Your wife had to get onto you calm down and I think we've all been there where we celebrated too hard in our wife got on to us at least I have.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:48] Europe life.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:49] Hey.   Pastor Bill: [1:04:51] Your reward that you one for killing a giant ever really loved.   Pastor Newms: [1:04:55] Hey you know it happens you kill a giant get a wife it's like a game show.   Pastor Bill: [1:05:01] Kill a giant - get a wife don't gotta pay taxes your family doesn't have to pay taxes this is a good deal either I die in order to pay taxes anymore or I survived and I don't want to pay taxes anymore and I get a wife.   Pastor Newms: [1:05:13] But yeah that that's what it that's why I was chuckling to myself why you were talking was you were like go out celebrate not just saw David going we, yeah gird your loins wear underwear when you go out and celebrate but.   Pastor Bill: We love you guys have a great week.   Pastor Newms: Be safe out there.   Pastor Bill: And until next time.

They're pawns, trapped in a battle of wills between Belarus' autocratic president, Aleksandr Lukashenko, and Poland and the European Union. The Polish government is taking a tough line, imposing an exclusion zone along the border and sealing off the area to journalists and aid workers.

Pastor Bill: [0:00] Hello and welcome to season 3 episode 55 of the Berean Manifesto; Faith, Hope, and Love for the Modern Christian. I'm Pastor Bill and as always I am joined all the way from the great state of Tennessee by my friend and yours the awesome Pastor Newms.   Pastor Newms: [0:28] Okay okay first off calm down with all that stuff.   Pastor Bill: [0:34] Calling Tennessee great? I'm sorry I didn't mean to... You wouldn't know it you're going to the store with you ever. Going to store this man and everybody everybody's his friend.   Pastor Newms: [0:50] That is. I act friendly with all not everyone is my friend.   Pastor Bill: [1:05] All right well we've got puff is joining us on our Phoenix or whatever she goes by I can never remember first post Color age, Phoenix Wright fluffiness, um yeah Phoenix is joining us on Twitch and we got Biggs on Twitch which hopefully our connection will be better this week than it was man was that alright that was that last week.   Pastor Newms: [1:29] Why did you say it why did you say it everything was going out perfect now that you've said it.   Pastor Bill: [1:34] Everything will continue to go out perfect because… ya… We got Zaydiee here on Twitch Biggs likes my fancy shirt. Favor blue you know the company Favor, Favor blue tuxedo shirt it's actually is a Favor um from the information meeting that I went to, to try to get some rides working for Favor but the never actually didn't any Favor rides but that's a whole different story. So how was your week Pastor Newms?   Pastor Newms: [2:08] My week was pretty good other than the fact of one of my kids is still, um sick. Um and we are on quarantined locked down in our house everyone sleeping in separate rooms where my girls sometimes sleep in the bonus room together and watch TV and stuff everyone is in separate rooms. My wife and I are not even sleeping together to try to distance socially which I don't like. It is what it is so far no one else has had any symptoms. So that's how it's been a fun it's been a fun Thanksgiving holiday and I use fun very lightly. But other than that it's been good it was a short week at work because of the holiday it's so I played a lot of games and did some reading and that kind of stuff this week so my week was a little lighter than normal just because, was only 3 days of work.   Pastor Bill: [3:18] Bigs on Twitch asks which on your shirt it says the original and then it's got a Joker, Catwoman, and The Riddler from the 1950s Batman television show.   Pastor Newms: [3:32] I thought that was a 60s.   Pastor Bill: [3:33] Okay. I was a credit with 50s but.   Pastor Newms: [3:38] But it says and it says gangster at the bottom so.   Pastor Bill: [3:51] The Batman show that was live action but the violence wasn't and since they couldn't show that kind of action on television they put up animated cards that said pal blam yeah.   Pastor Newms: [4:04] Bam no it ran from 66 to 68 twice weekly and third three times weekly for the last season. So 120 episodes. It's weird they did 26 60 and 26 episodes in the seasons that's interesting.   Pastor Bill: [4:30] Well that's a trial order a full order and then a okay yeah will give you enough to finish the thought. Pass.   Pastor Newms: [4:48] By season.   Pastor Bill: [4:49] Phoenix says that was solid gold Bill what was solid gold. Me putting it in the wrong decade or like you being facetious or what was solid gold – P - she's put up the letter p.   Pastor Newms: [5:09] Season 3 is when they introduced Bat Girl to try to help with the ratings and where the famous statement of jumped the shark comes from.   Pastor Bill: [5:21] Hmmm, are you sure that didn't come from Happy Days?   Pastor Newms: [5:28] Was it? I always took it to come from here.   Pastor Bill: [5:32] Where he actually the Fonz actually jumps the shark on jet skis.   Pastor Newms: [5:41] I thought it was here maybe I'm wrong.   Pastor Bill: [5:54] Crew and set up where he did use bat shark repellent it was quite the scene. You said nice… Can you guys see my Green Lantern?   Pastor Newms: [6:13] Yeah I can see the green. The Green Lantern and part most of the screwdriver but not all of it it's right above my head.   Pastor Bill: [6:22] Hmm just turn it around then so you can see the not so much to handle but actual bud.   Pastor Newms: [6:30] Oh no you're right it is from Happy Days I was wrong.   Pastor Bill: [6:35] All right see you had a good.   Pastor Newms: [6:39] They just used the phrase.   Pastor Bill: [6:41] You know I wouldn't categorize exactly what you guys went through this week is a good week.   Pastor Newms: [6:49] No no but it was it was a week and no one no one no one's real sick so, no one had to go to the hospital no one cuz it is always a chance with covid so I'm I'm counting it good for that reason because it's been a mild case as far as how bad it can get she was very sick but it hasn't gotten terrible, so how was your week.   Pastor Bill: [7:23] We had Thanksgiving. We went and decorated my mom's for Christmas and.   Pastor Newms: [7:42] We played a lot of satisfactory didn't stream any of.   Pastor Bill: [7:44] We played a good amount of satisfactory this week.   Pastor Newms: [7:50] It's not really unless you're doing something specific it's a hard game to stream though because it really is just the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.   Pastor Bill: [8:03] It's true it wouldn't be that it wouldn't be that fun to watch.   Pastor Newms: [8:31] I'm looking forward to the game we play next but.   Pastor Bill: [8:36] Which is going to be what as if I didn't already know.   Pastor Newms: [8:41] It's one of two, either start either play through the Borderlands games or so we get something different because it's a shooter or turn up a server and play Ark.   Pastor Bill: [8:57] I just assumed it was going to be Borderlands the next because you've been chomping at the bit.   Pastor Newms: [9:03] It is it is my favorite game of all time. We will probably stream our entire gameplay even if we don't do it live, I'll probably record all of it just because I want to see Billiams reaction to most of the jokes in the game because it is just that good, okay I was just thinking about it on the fact I forgot to get it out the just the game itself is so good, some of my favorite lines of video game characters in a bunch of Tik-Tok audios you don't realize are from Borderlands and so it'll be it'll be good we'll get ourselves some chocolate chip cookies.   Pastor Bill: [9:58] Okay.   Pastor Newms: [10:01] Skag Meat.   Pastor Bill: [10:02] Some skag meat, I think I recognize that. Okay so it's time for Getting To Know The Pastor's I've already got the card.   Pastor Newms: [10:10] Oh should we talk about the one the one other thing we found out this week.   Pastor Bill: [10:15] What did we find out.   Pastor Newms: [10:16] That Newms is a sweaty boy when I don't like to admit.   Pastor Bill: [10:19] Newms is quite the sweaty boy, now you got to tell you everybody what a sweaty boy is.   Pastor Newms: [10:25] We found out I found out Billiam knew it was there but I had forgotten about it and then found it again, in the Star Trek game we play together, there is a little thing in your profile that says how many hostiles you've killed over the time of you playing and I've played for, significantly less time than most people on the server we play on because I entered the server much later than everyone else because I entered to play with, Pastor Bill which is Hew him so, I've only been playing for seven months whereas Bills been playing over here and I found out, that my hostel shifts destroyed is currently as of right now. Just over 90,000. Hostiles. Which means I've ground in the game and just hit hostels over and over and over again as a as a thing. Billiam is higher level than me by 4 has been playing for an extra five months or so no six months or so, his hostile ships destroyed is 66,000 694. So I've killed 23,000 more ships.   Pastor Bill: [12:12] In half the time.   Pastor Newms: [12:14] Half the time that I've played and I. That messes with me a little because I'm like like I game a lot I get that but like I'm always playing more than one game at a time and, I've had a lot of ships.   Pastor Bill: [12:39] And the and the guy who plays this game professionally for his YouTube channel how many hostiles had a yet.   Pastor Newms: [12:46] On his main account.   Pastor Bill: [12:49] 23 years that he's been doing this.   Pastor Newms: [12:52] On his main account he was around where you were he was at like 70,000 or but he plays multiple accounts.   Pastor Bill: [13:03] He has at least 14 Accounts at this point so.   Pastor Newms: [13:08] Billiam if I mean Biggs if you click on your icon your little your little person in the top left, and then you there's a scroll item and it shows like power destroyed missions completed resources mind, and then down there it says hostile ships destroyed I would.   Pastor Bill: [13:30] Cuz cuz Biggs plays this game too.   Pastor Newms: [13:33] Yes I would be interested in your Damage Done to hostels I didn't look at it it's probably significantly higher because you've been hitting higher ships mine is right at 35 billion Damage Done.   Pastor Bill: [13:48] Well I don't have the game open right now so I couldn't tell.   Pastor Newms: [13:50] I know I'm I'm already looking.   Pastor Bill: [13:52] Oh you're looking into mine.   Pastor Newms: [13:54] Yeah I don't know if it's one of the things that's public that's the aspect I don't I don't know, it is yeah you have done 50 billion damage so you have done more damage you just.   Pastor Bill: [14:11] More damage and less hostels.   Pastor Newms: [14:14] You've ground higher-level hostiles I ground a lot when I was lower to get up faster, Biggs is killed 19 thousand ships almost 18300 so he's doing a good amount of grinding himself.   Pastor Bill: [14:33] All right let's do Getting To Know The Pastor's.   Pastor Newms: [14:36] Getting To Know The Pastors sorry sidetracked.   Pastor Bill: [14:38] I've been sitting here with the card stuck to my forehead.   Pastor Newms: [14:41] I know it was gross.   Pastor Bill: [14:45] If there was a sandwich named after you what would be on it.   Pastor Newms: [14:55] Hmm um. Well, my favorite sandwich even though I'm not supposed to eat it is the Hunter at Jimmy John's, which is turkey roast beef, and cheese and then a bunch of crap I get off of it the same which I make it home, most of the time is, pan cooked skillet cooked chopped up roast beef and cheese, with onion powder garlic and Italian seasoning so depends, I don't know what about you.   Pastor Bill: [15:57] Well I've already had a burger designed in my honor as a type of sandwich it was two half-pound burger patties on a cinnamon raisin bagel, and some barbecue sauce in there and some chopped up onions and lettuce, and the gentleman who created it with a Muslim so there was no bacon but if I could have bacon added then I would want bacon at it and yeah, so that was that was what was in there for me is Phoenix is running to my burger, okay it is delicious surprisingly delicious.   Pastor Newms: [16:47] I I've never understood the raisin part I couldn't get behind it I'm sorry homie even when I watched you eat it I couldn't do it.   Pastor Bill: [16:59] This delicious fantastic. Um and then if it was a drink it's 3/4 a solo cup of dr. pepper and one shot of espresso. That's the drink. What?   Pastor Newms: [17:22] What is wrong with you?   Pastor Bill: [17:23] It's delicious. I call it a Dr. Spresso. What's wrong with my Dr. Spresso.   Pastor Newms: [17:42] Are we over yet.   Pastor Bill: [17:44] We haven't started. You're done too tired okay.   Pastor Newms: [17:57] Oh I am thankful that we are time for us to talk about our topic.   Pastor Bill: [18:09] All right so the title of.   Pastor Newms: [18:11] Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait Biggs says that's a Dagwood what is a Dagwood.   Pastor Bill: [18:17] Dagwood is any bread that you have available that you slap anything you have in your fridge or Pantry on.   Pastor Newms: [18:24] Oh   Pastor Bill: [18:24] Into a sandwich he was responding to Phoenix.   Pastor Newms: [18:28] Mmm okay.   Pastor Bill: [18:31] As we're a Dagwood.   Pastor Newms: [18:33] I'm not familiar with that term.   Pastor Bill: [18:36] A Bat Brain gets just says I just got onto the first thing I hear is that you're done we're not really done Newms is just doing his facetious thing of.   Pastor Newms: [18:47] Yeah.   Pastor Bill: [18:47] When I say something that he thinks is outlandish and he's like it's too much I can't I can't move I can't go.   Pastor Newms: [18:51] Hey it's fast too much.   Pastor Bill: [18:54] I'm done I was just.   Pastor Newms: [18:56] Which for those of you out in in both Twitch land and in listening to podcast land I do that to him normally.   Pastor Bill: [19:06] He does.   Pastor Newms: [19:07] There will be times where one of us will just end the call and walk away for a minute and then come back when we're talking because it's like no done and walk away.   Pastor Bill: [19:17] Thousand out.   Pastor Newms: [19:18] We never stay gone long but it's just the funniness of nope so this is we don't actually end for your guys's benefit normally I would just hang up on him and come back in a minute.   Pastor Bill: [19:33] It's true. All right, so this week's episode is called unthankful and I know we're coming right on the tail end of Thanksgiving and then we're having an episode called unthankful, and I struggled with the so the first thing I got this week was was what to title, the episode unthankful and I told Newms you know we're that the title is unthankful and he's like which means what and I was like I don't know, I don't know I'll let you know when I find out more and so then I was trying to sus it out today and, so yeah so we tonight it's called unthankful, and so for tonight we're going to turn to first Thessalonians chapter 5 and we're going to read. I think we'll start in verse 12 I'm wearing to go through. Let's go through 22 okay first Thessalonians chapter 5 verses 12 through 22 says, now we ask you brothers and sisters to give recognition to those who labor among you and Lead You In The Lord and admonish you and to regard them very highly in love because of their work, be at peace amongst yourselves guys this is his entry his his introduction to his exit to 1st Thessalonians, be at peace among ourselves and we exhort you brothers and sisters warn those who are idle, Comfort the discouraged help the weak be patient with everyone see to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone but always pursue what is good for one another and for all, and this is where we get to the really meaty part that we're going to be spending some time in tonight, Rejoice always pray constantly give thanks in everything for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus, don't stifle Spirit don't despise prophecies but tests all things hold on to what is good stay away from every kind of evil. Verse 21 of Thessalonians chapter 5 test all things hold on to what is good, this is this is the kind of concept that we were talking about when we were talking about the Apocrypha when we were talking about the deuterocanonical books, when we're talking about looking at other religions and going well you know they might be onto something there with that one aspect when we say things like, um you know people have gotten glimpses of God, through all the time not just Israelites not just Christians not Jay you know we get a glimpse of God and we try to understand what we just saw and we write it down or we create beliefs about it. You know tests all those things read it find out what it says and, take the good that you find the stuff that you know makes you a better person the things that make you love God more than seek God more have a better relationship with God, hold on to those things and you know, let go of the things that don't sound right and don't don't give you a better life and don't make you a better Christian don't make you love God more. So yeah that's that's a side note there.   Pastor Newms: [23:30] That's a good side note.   Pastor Bill: [23:32] That's a good sign is that all you have to say about the side note is that's a good side note.   Pastor Newms: [23:36] That's all I got.   Pastor Bill: [23:38] That's all he's got okay.   Pastor Newms: [23:40] It's all I got.   Pastor Bill: [23:41] So I basically have and we may just just tear through this I don't know, um because I didn't flush it out much but but basically when we're looking at first Thessalonians chapter 5 and we get 2 verses 16 through 18 right it says, give thanks in everything or that's 18 Rejoice always pray constantly give thanks in everything okay. This is basically one sentence it's split up into three versus but it's one sentence it says Rejoice always come, pray constantly, give thanks in everything semicolon, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus so I want to look at that there's these three things that were being told to do, and then also told you know that, these things are God's will for us in Christ Jesus this is what God wants for us is for us to always Rejoice always pray and always be thankful. And so I was going through that today and I'm thinking about you know why why why these three things, and when I when we talk about always Rejoice there's lots of things in the Bible where it says you know rejoice in the lord always rejoice in the hope that you have, rejoicing and the thing is that the Lord does so. Wow words juice blank what's the word the practical application. Ends this when we think about the practical application of this statement, I've Rejoice always there's this concept in psychiatry in, psychology about celebrating all the small victories right, you celebrate All the Small victories and and basically what happens then is that you start to see, the ways in life that you've succeeded you start to see the ways in life where you have overcome you start to see the, attitude of your life gets this, upward trajectory instead of constantly feeling defeated instead of constantly feeling beat down instead of constantly being overwhelmed, by the world and everything that's going on around you right wildfires covid, January 6 Capital thing shootings and diseases and wars and rumors of wars and all these things that are going on in the world that are just, awful and ridiculous that way on all of our shoulders and make us feel heavy right. We celebrate the small victories to bring that Focus back in to give us a trajectory up. And and here Paul is Paul wrote Thessalonians right. Well Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy did they all three co-write it.   Pastor Newms: [27:38] I think that is the common thought yes.   Pastor Bill: [27:53] God wants you to be always rejoice in God's will for your life isn't for you to be beat down, and depressed and feeling overwhelmed God wants you to be celebrating the Small Things finding ways to rejoice, keeping that attitude and that trajectory upwards and outwards instead of being overcome and overwhelmed and Beatdown okay that's my point number one tonight, anything you want to add to always Rejoice anything you've heard in your life that you can add that. Or experience.   Pastor Newms: [28:35] I mean it's one of those things like you said it's it's it's important in life to celebrate the small things because there is so much going on, like kind of what we were talking about earlier you know I was in okay it was a good week you know it could've been worse you know because you know we celebrate the little things that did happen that we're good not, think about and dwell on all the things, could have gone wrong and have gone wrong this week like canceling Thanksgiving and you know.   Pastor Bill: [29:12] And you were saying you were saying yesterday you know I don't like to leave the house I can go weeks without leaving the house and the moment we're quarantined I just feel trapped like I have to get up.   Pastor Newms: [29:26] Yeah and and it it's a weird realization that particular aspect. Because I found it the first time you know the the time when we were all quarantined for a long amount of time I this is this is where I exist right here, if you ever wonder you know is doing right now he's either doing this, he's doing this or he's doing this.   Pastor Bill: [29:56] Sometimes there's some sleeping in there somewhere but.   Pastor Newms: [30:00] There is there is but only about 20% of the day. The majority of the time I'm right in this chair doing this or that and you know, but then you get Court like you're told you can't go to this you know, you can go to the store but you have to wear a mask because I'm fully vaccinated is with the CDC, for the county and stuff is said and blah blah blah and it's like I'm just gonna stay home because it could be on me you know but, it's just that aspect of when I'm not supposed to go a lot of places I'm not supposed to you know do this or do and I'm like well I just want to go to the mall now, quarantines going to be over in 10 days because no one else in the house is going to get sick I believe and, when it is I'm not going to want to go out everyone else in the house is going to be stir crazy but. I'm like no I'm good but you were just complaining last week now I'm good, we have to be thankful for the things we do have and not focus on the things that are making a stir crazy.   Pastor Bill: [31:25] Absolutely okay.   Pastor Newms: [31:27] And I think you know one of the commentaries talks about this I know you've already read the same commentary because it's your one of your favorite commentaries but, these three specifically are very connected because to be thankful is to do the next thing which is.   Pastor Bill: [31:52] I'm just going to sit here and see how long you'll wave your hands and Beyond, all right so the next verse is.   Pastor Newms: [32:01] China Segway try and trying to set you up.   Pastor Bill: [32:05] The CHP says pray constantly I said always pray bigs in twitch wrote pray without ending these are all the same, these are mean the same things and and prayer you know we, a lot of times when people talk about prayer we think of the staunch person using big words and being over, religious and you know the guy that God specific Jesus, specifically said don't pray like those people those are the people we think about when we think about prayer you know oh God the Lord of heavens and earth, I thank you that I am not a slave or a woman was coming you know prayer back in the day and in Israel. I would never pray that but it was a common prayer and gods like dude don't don't pray like those guys duh there's pump their circumstances they're not actually talking to God they're just trying to get the attention of the people around them, um and so pray constantly well why, why would we need to pray constantly why do we pray at all and there's, there's different thoughts about how prayer works I've made it no secret on the Broom Manifesto that I the way that I see the world the way the world works and the relationship of the world with God that, God created us God gave us dominion over the Earth and everything that happens here has to happen with the permission of humanity, so from that theological perspective prayer is giving God permission, authority to move it doesn't mean he will move in the way that you've asked, it doesn't mean that you're guaranteed what you asked for or if you you ask for a Cadillac that you're going to get it or money you're going to doesn't mean any of that, it means that your prayer gives God the authority to move in the Earth the way he needs to move. And big says God knows what you ask.   Pastor Newms: [34:34] God knows what you want but he wants you.   Pastor Bill: [34:35] I want buddy wants you to ask sorry there's some autocorrect going on there out of trouble reading the sentence, and so there is that that concept that people have that you know you have not because you ask not true seek and you shall find true knock and it shall be answered true, it doesn't always work that way you know, you don't always get what you ask for sometimes what you ask for is bad for you sometimes what you ask for is bad for other people on and on and on the whole it's a whole you know sticky situation there but I believe that prayer is an act of prophetic interception where you are giving God, room to move basically because we're the authority, humankind the authority on the earth and as Christians were then giving God, the authority to move in this situation that we're praying about how do you. You want to talk about what you think about prayer your viewing.   Pastor Newms: [35:45] So um so.   Pastor Bill: [35:51] Address today's date is question.   Pastor Newms: [35:53] Well let me because I was about to do the exact same thing so I'll I want to kind of, so for me my thought process is, The Authority that's been given to us as humans when he gave authority over the Earth to humans that we then, gave away and then had to get anyway the, when you ask God to do something that it is opening up, yourself and others to fulfill that we have to you know God has a will, he has something he's wanting to do and. We should be connected in such a way that we pray for his will to be done and in praying that will out that then, allows like you said allows him to move in those situations, when God gave the authority over to us it it you know it's not saying that God doesn't have the power.   Pastor Bill: [37:22] Say gave up the Authority or gave away the authority.   Pastor Newms: [37:28] It's not that God is Not powerful enough that there's some people that like well if God is all-powerful why can't he just do what he wants.   Pastor Bill: [37:37] It's that he's not a liar and he gave us authority to just do what he wants would make that a lie he has to get permission.   Pastor Newms: [38:01] Some people struggle with that because it's not what they were talking.   Pastor Bill: [38:04] They should struggle with it they should circle with all statement.   Pastor Newms: [38:08] Yeah and you know us having the authority, it's interesting to think about that aspect but there are, you know the Bible talks about God giving Authority in certain situations to people so often, you know God gives leadership Authority God gives you know all leadership is ordained you know people are Dane to do certain things God gives, certain spiritual gifts and power to people on an individual level and giving those pieces of authority over aspects over time, you know is interesting thought one of the things. I've heard in the past and that I do, the person referred to it as micro prayers which is a weird concept because it's it's just praying without ceasing and, someone asked The Story Goes that someone asked a monk you know how do you continue to pray how are you not, ceasing in your prayers is that why you don't talk and he said well I continue to talk to God all the time even if I'm talking to you because I'm I'm, asking God what should be the next thing I say I ask God you know. Did I understand that I asked God different things like that. Society asks when we pray do we say I give you permission to work in a way so deem necessary or something along those lines it doesn't seem right because either way he's going to work how he needs to so, it's. If we look at the Lord's Prayer it's a really good analogy for this situation and a great formula like you said is, may your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven so his will in heaven is easy because it.   Pastor Bill: [40:34] Because he has the authority there.   Pastor Newms: [40:36] So it just what he wants happens because it's not the Physical Realm there's not rules that he said about of physics there's not you know different things like that it's, it's heaven but the aspect of. Earth we want his will to come true, and so it's that thought process of its kind like when you pray for healing, God I know you can heal this person if it's your will please do, you know it's not, necessarily for me it's not God do this now.   Pastor Bill: [41:13] Hmm it's simple enough to just say you know. I command the signatures begun and and healing in their body you're expressing your permission for God to move just by using your normal words. Zaydiee says sorry.   Pastor Newms: [41:39] I'll let you touch on that.   Pastor Bill: [41:40] Authority on Earth and Phoenix says but he rules everything so God only has the authority that he is then given, on the earth because, he gave over the authority of the earth to Adam and Eve and their. And that Rings true over and that Concept in my opinion I mean obviously everything's up everything that isn't a Salvation issue is Up For Debate, in my opinion that Rings true over and over and over and over again. God didn't flood the Earth until after he talked to Noah I know I'm gonna do this thing and Noah goes alright I'll play my part, God didn't destroy Sodom and Gomorrah until he talked to Abraham and Abraham put conditions on his permission what if there's one person 1050 you know, anytime there's that big move God moves through Humanity. To get that that permission from The Authority that he set up he's not a liar and he's a gentleman and he's not gonna override that Authority.   Pastor Newms: [43:05] And I think so it is definitely, for me like zaidi saying prayer is just talking to God it's really funny because Tina praise zadie praise a lot more than, lots of people that I know and I'll take something to her and be like hey can you pray for this oh I already was I wasn't sure why though. And but there is. That aspect of so for me this is one of the things me and you differ on slightly is I don't view it as much as. The. The Bible is written in such a way that when it talks about the authority it talks about prayer I think that we continue to pray. What God wants and like you said what zaidi said was did he did God go to those people out of kindness not asking permission. He It's it's the authority that he gave over to man over the Earth over the trees over the animals over Humanity it does. Permission has to be given to a certain degree but the thing is is so many people have prayed for permission so many times over time that. That's where my aspect comes into play where it's like so many people pray your will be done so often it's at a certain point where if you don't give him permission someone else might, and so there is there is those aspects and then Phoenix said he'll override if he needs to do it, he doesn't need Authority he's got all of it so I, I don't think that's accurate personally and I'll give two examples I can think of offhand one, there is a point in the Old Testament where there's a battle going on and someone prays that they can win the Israelite leader I can't remember which leader it is at that moment, get my brother's Moses or Joshua because my brain is not connecting but he prays and he says we need to win and God says okay I'll leave it daytime, as long as you leave your hands in the air. And God could have easily just been like okay it'll be daytime to you're done. When his arm started to go down it started become night when his arms went back up it didn't, so in that that was God had given us Authority and then he was only following through when, we were doing our part, we have to do our part of the story it's one of the reasons why I could never be an actual calvinist because a true calvinist doesn't believe in, we have to do our part of spreading. Planting the seeds and those types of things and I think it's the same with prayer we have to plant the seeds we have to. Do the asking God just won't do it normally.   Pastor Bill: [47:31] And another another good example is in first Samuel when Saul does the wrong thing, and is no longer qualified to be king anymore. God doesn't just okay you're no longer King anymore he goes to Samuel and he says hey I need you to anoint a new king. And Samuel girls okay I'll do it even even in instituting the king of Israel God had to go through a human being. And get David anointed as king.   Pastor Newms: [48:14] So Phoenix you just said something that if you're good, if you are going to hurt yourself if it's his will to stop you from doing harm he doesn't come to me and say can I have your permission to help you and I will agree with that he doesn't.   Pastor Bill: [48:30] If that was true then no one would ever have committed suicide.   Pastor Newms: [48:37] And the other aspect is the. There are people who are praying for us all the time friends families intercessors different aspects like that.   Pastor Bill: [48:51] Well not everyone.   Pastor Newms: [48:55] I don't know cuz some some people do real generic prayers and so because of that, it tends to cover whole groups of people.   Pastor Bill: [49:05] Wait we assume that it does.   Pastor Newms: [49:08] Yeah we assume.   Pastor Bill: [49:09] We're doing a lot of assumption there.   Pastor Newms: [49:12] And so I think that's that's the reason is that there are times that he steps in to stop something from happening. But it is because of a reason it's not just I don't think God ever forces something he. Like that I think it's it's it is that aspect. I don't quite understand what you mean Phoenix by that statement.   Pastor Bill: [50:03] Well I said no one would have ever committed suicide and she's saying that's not the correct terminology, they should be they died by Suicide not that they committed suicide and I don't know the difference is that may just be my ignorance but if I'm saying that wrong I do apologize.   Pastor Newms: [50:25] Yeah I'm not I haven't heard that.   Pastor Bill: [50:26] The way that you're coming at me I may be reading too much into that, adding tone where there isn't tone the way you're coming at me it seems like I've triggered or hurt or put a fence in some way and I would never intentionally do that that's not what we're about, I don't want to hurt anyone or you know things like that I don't think there's any reason to intentionally hurt someone like that, so I'll have to look into that make sure that I'm using the right terminology and that area because I would I would hate for someone to be a survivor of. Attempted suicide or someone to be the family member of someone who did die by Suicide and, cause hurt and pain on top of what they've already experienced that's definitely not something that I would want to do. Okay, so yeah so prayer is this gotten a little bit off-track of the way I wanted prayer to go, like I said I'm not fully in charge here you know I get the topic and then we start flowing with the Holy Spirit and the kind of go where we go.   Pastor Newms: [51:48] Questions are important.   Pastor Bill: [51:49] Questions are very important and is is one of the main reasons why we do it this. Ah freak certifies that committed would be indicating that they committed an offense, and I guess I see that I mean I'm in a committed relationship, commitment and committed can be used in more terminology than just an offense but I can see how then adding that word to the word suicide has that.   Pastor Newms: [52:25] Connotation difference between difference between the diction in the connotation I think is.   Pastor Bill: [52:32] So now let's let's let's bring that second point that always pray around into what we talked about the Practical you know that begin with Point number one, and and in the Practical side of Prayer, Prather is this meditative process and I know a lot in Christian circles using the word meditation is a big No-No you know it causes all kinds of issues but, when we turn to the Psalms we find David saying that the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing To You O Lord, um And so there's this concept you know meditation is a Christian thing we meditate on the word we meditate you know on different things and prayer is a meditative process, and what prayer does is it lines up your mind with your spirit and creates this more, inline being within you. All meditation should do that but there are forms of meditation that you know cause you to be in more chaos and cause you to open yourself up to. Other things like I'm an empathic type person meaning I can sense when someone's anxious or when they're depressed and and then I start to, you know take that on in myself, and so there are certain types of meditation where I would I could take on like a sponge things that are bad for me, but prayer is this type of meditation to to line you up and give you this these great psychological, and so praying without ceasing is is a really good, meditative process that's good for you Spirit soul and body and so that's just another thing of you know well God wants you, not only committed to finding his will but also to be out of chaos to be, in line to be lined up with yourself to be at peace with yourself and the third Point here from first Thessalonians 5:18, he is always be thankful, find things to be thankful about find things to you know I'm so glad I have you in my life I'm so glad they made that decision I'm so glad that Ricola wrappers are yellow because yellow is my favorite color. Little Things, to be thankful about don't give me that look that's a little thing to be thankful about tiny little thing seems completely innocuous but when I look at Agricola rapper and I see my favorite color I'm thankful that the crappers my favorite color, little bit of thankfulness in my life.   Pastor Newms: [55:33] I'll give you that it brings you a little Joy.   Pastor Bill: [55:35] Yeah bring me a little Joy I get a little serotonin boost right which then helps Mal look in my attitude, and then I end up making better decisions and and people want to be around me they want to be there for me when I need people, and so thankful this creates this this Synergy in your life where you are, continuing with that attitude that you said in your rejoicing in the small things your continuing on that attitude and just getting better and better day by day, and all of this is then pinned with this is the life God wants you to live this is how God wants you to live, he wants you to be celebrating the small victories and setting that attitude he wants you to be praying in, and be in that meditative sync with all of your being he wants you to be thankful so that you're walking out that attitude that you set and so that things are getting better and so that you are, attracting a tribe around you to help carry you forward and help you succeed and that. Is what I have to say about that.   Pastor Newms: [56:55] And I think it goes back to the I think all of these these three tie-in so well you know. In prayer we are thinking all the time you know.

A vast and desolate region, the Texas-New Mexico borderlands have long been an ideal setting for intrigue and illegal dealings--never more so than in the lawless early days of cattle trafficking and trade among the Plains tribes and Comancheros. This book takes us to the borderlands in the 1860s and 1870s for an in-depth look at Union-Confederate skullduggery amid the infamous Comanche-Comanchero trade in stolen Texas livestock. In 1862, the Confederates abandoned New Mexico Territory and Texas west of the Pecos River, fully expecting to return someday. Meanwhile, administered by Union troops under martial law, the region became a hotbed of Rebel exiles and spies, who gathered intelligence, disrupted federal supply lines, and plotted to retake the Southwest. Using a treasure trove of previously unexplored documents, authors James Bailey Blackshear and Glen Sample Ely trace the complicated network of relationships that drew both Texas cattlemen and Comancheros into these borderlands, revealing the urban elite who were heavily involved in both the legal and illegal transactions that fueled the region's economy. James Bailey Blackshear and Glen Sample Ely's Confederates and Comancheros: Skullduggery and Double-Dealing in the Texas-New Mexico Borderlands (U Oklahoma Press, 2021) deftly weaves a complex tale of Texan overreach and New Mexican resistance, explores cattle drives and cattle rustling, and details shady government contracts and bloody frontier justice. Peopled with Rebels and bluecoats, Comanches and Comancheros, Texas cattlemen and New Mexican merchants, opportunistic Indian agents and Anglo arms dealers, this book illustrates how central these contested borderlands were to the history of the American West.

Francisco Lozada / Theology of Immigration: Crossing Porous Borders, Welcoming Strangers, and the Faith of the Migrant

What can the faith of the migrant teach us about a living theology? The resilience and communal outlook of immigrants offers a way of seeing human relationships—political, social, religious—as porous and permeable, meant to encounter God in the other, welcoming each other in love and hospitality. Francisco Lozada (Brite Divinity School) joins Evan Rosa to reflect on his experiences at U.S.-Mexico borderlands, leading travel seminars and teaching about immigration and justice from a theological framework—they discuss the influence of liberation theology's guiding principle of the preferential option for the poor, the centrality of history in understanding immigration, the problem of American xenophobia, and the racialization of U.S. immigration policy.This episode was made possible in part by the generous support of the Tyndale House Foundation. For more information, visit tyndale.foundation."Building bridges, not walls.""God doesn't see borders. In my theological thinking, I don't imagine a God or theologize a God asking, "show me your papers." God's asking different questions: Did you feed me, did you give me something to drink, did you clothe me?During this trip to Nogales, we came across a group of students and they were celebrating mass. We were walking right by them. We were on the U.S. side, they were on the Mexican side, and they asked, do we want to celebrate mass there? And what I see that moment is, that mass, that prayer was a form or expression of resistance, of pushing back there. There are no borders between us.Prayer doesn't see borders. Faith doesn't see borders. That's the power religion. I think the power of theology, the power of prayer, is that it works—not always, but in its true sense—it works to build bridges, not walls." (Francisco Lozada, from the interview)Introduction (Evan Rosa)Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,With conquering limbs astride from land to land;Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall standA mighty woman with a torch, whose flameIs the imprisoned lightning, and her nameMother of Exiles. From her beacon-handGlows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes commandThe air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries sheWith silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”"The New Colossus" Emma Lazarus, 1883The generous spirit, the welcome for the wandering, taking in the homeless stranger, the refugee—these words that inscribe the Statue of Liberty offer a hopeful image of an America with open arms, a beacon of hospitality and safety in a dangerous world. How do we square this symbol of welcoming freedom with the reality of immigration policy today? Detention centers crowded with young children separated from their families, exploitation of undocumented migrants for agricultural labor, billions of dollars spent on "the wall," the false nativism of fair-skinned European-American immigrants.Alongside the ideals of The New Colossus embracing the "tired, poor, huddled masses," a history of racial purity, exclusion, xenophobia, and fear can be seen in immigration policy, from the Chinese Exclusion Act just four years before the dedication of Lady Liberty, to the discriminatory immigration quotas of the Johnson-Reed Act in 1924, all the way up to the Muslim Travel Ban of 2017.In the spring of 2018, approximately 5,500 children were separated from their families by Trump's zero tolerance policy. 1,700 children still live in detention centers, 3 years later.But how does this balance with the rights of a nation to enforce and manage its political borders? How should those borders be enforced justly? How should we prioritize national security and cultural integrity with the call to welcome the tempest-tost stranger through our "golden doors"?Well, beyond the dizzying political and moral questions that we have with us always, Francisco Lozada is thinking theologically about immigration and the migrant experience. He is the Charles Fischer Catholic Professor of New Testament and Latinx Studies at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, Texas.Lozada draws on his experiences at U.S.-Mexico borderlands, leading travel seminars and teaching about immigration and justice from a theological framework. In this episode we discuss the influence of liberation theology's guiding principle of the preferential option for the poor, the centrality of history in understanding immigration, the problem of American xenophobia, the racialization of U.S. immigration policy, and the ways Jesus, himself a migrant and refugee, crosses borders and boundaries throughout the Gospel narrative.Thanks for listening.AboutFrancisco Lozada, Jr. is the Charles Fischer Catholic Professor of New Testament and Latinx Studies at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, Texas. He holds a doctorate in New Testament and Early Christianity from Vanderbilt University. He is a past co-chair of the Johannine Literature Section (SBL), past chair of the Program Committee of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), and a past member of SBL Council. He is a past president of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States, a past steering committee member of the Bible, Indigenous Group of the American Academy of Religion (AAR), and past co-chair of the Latino/a and Latin American Biblical Interpretation Consultation (SBL). He also serves on the board of directors for the Hispanic Summer Program, and mentored several doctoral students with the Hispanic Theological Initiative (HTI). Dr. Lozada's most recent publications concern cultural and ideological interpretation while exploring how the Bible is employed and deployed in ethnic/racial communities. As a teacher, he co-led immersion travel seminars to Guatemala to explore colonial/postcolonial issues and, most recently, to El Paso, TX, and Nogales, AZ, to study life and society in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.
