This is the Truth Network welcome to mannitol and brought you by DAW. CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry where they're devoted to breaking down the walls of race, age, and challenging and that take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior, a black guy and a white guy and talk radio like God and you won't hear will tonight.

This afternoon he is missing in action would give him a week longer two-week long sabbatical season will be taking a break and during this time, often have nice vacations will we hope you're enjoying yourself and look for to have you back next week so I am doing this evening by Pat to get close friend of mine in just a man in the marketplace and has amazing work going on from Lord Pat welcome and thank you Roy all teammate good to be with you.

That's always good to speak with you and the honor of spend time with you recently and I just always good to catch up. That is one of his kingdom. Warriors, folks. He is they don't come any purer than he does. And I certainly don't coming more athletically gifted intact so you have seen these guys vertical jump it's it's off the charts. We played football together and call its impact third so good having about this latest thing off will be talking about today is is the last couple weeks we talking about the millennial group of those in basically the 20s and 30s. Now we want to talk little bit set the clock back just a little bit want to talk about the teenagers and what's going on with the other young folks in schools today in their churches and communities in Pat, why don't you just kind of listless the strategic question. What do you think is the biggest challenge that the that age group is facing right now. What will they live in a help because the resources about I'm telling know aren't going when in reality they all have an angle on so that what's important when you're angle is the please glorify God in your motivation is not self-centered God. Anything else and there is something there wanting to get from the teenagers.

In other words to manipulate Emmett -controlled right and and so that is the big issue when we have dealt with our own will and our own desires because the will will always looking to get the best deal. I mean I hateit in any time you and I situation where else to go buy a car you want about one you know like 5000 over the retail value right to get something even as a bargain should negotiate your exactly and so so you just have that innate desire to do that. So if you are some some group, whatever it may be, you're going to try to get the most people to follow you and follow your your line of thinking your mindset. Your paradigm that only by Scott at angle so when I say oh that Christian community has an angle. Yeah our ankle is that everyone walks freely and what God created them and in their mission and calling in life and that doesn't mean that all my appetites for my pleasures know is going to be about God will accomplish. It doesn't don't know really I'm starving for so when you share that beautiful absolute hindmost that comes from the word of God that's brilliant. The main thing I know it right here in the Scriptures is the best book that was written is the best seller of all time. You think your best photos and put it on there anymore because it's always number 13 locked down payment on and so you put it on because it's always the best seller in everybody's loaning an ongoing for that spiritual nourishment that only the Scriptures can get. In fact, there's a neuroscientist and currently read the Scripture that hydroplaning like everything in it like being like well and so when they hear the word of God and eight and they see it in and they can see an example of it or they can, and in their in their world mandate that there's a starving like a I can't wait to get in the bus they wanted and gorge myself and eat it all up your about me like you had a good old buff a lot some more than others.

We can tell some stories about Jack and Rocco buff a lot lately all of us is right and we had a lot of volume and so on. They don't like this was like one with me through the American history story. People are trying to rewrite that right now when you got somebody like David Barton and wall builders to study the actual writings in the transcript forefathers you know some of it out there that they got some other angle that they are trying to get you to believe or think it says and what it really did say in what their hearts intentions were wasn't about about a race. It was about serving God as a country writing about, you know, slavery. It was about serving a greater purpose in good even do they need to get rid of that. Get rid of slavery, but they the country felt to start off right in order for it to go there because those original documents is how we got that much great nation and and we have the most freedom of everyone and there is people trying to subservient everyone in this day and time. We do deal with some systemic issues and things like that but we can we can do that based on the fact that we know it self-evident that all all are created equal and eyes of God and have given that MAV will go right to pursue life, liberty, and you know and and walking that so so that's that's what the next generation is longing for so much. Tell me, tell me what's the truth you guys back up in the sky but he said they struggle with. What do they believe you said there so many people you guess the divine for their attention.

There following their belief their support.

When you talk to these young folks that are in high school today and you have time. What are the things that are hearing the untruths I should say in the and how much exposure to the trousseau that getting one of the untruths that you're seeing in today's time of one pilot all is just note your moral value is different than somebody else moral value somewhere else. Not in doubt, they don't believe like 10 Commandments is for all mankind is not just for some demographic so at some point in time in history if it is for all of history writing. This was great about the word of God is written by the one created mankind stands testing every every nation tried and Tongan English just that the biggest fundamental issue is, there isn't that God is made up that that is a cultural saying and so there's different difference your God might be called Buddha errors might be called Jesus Christ. Yours might be Mohammed, but it sure truth and if it works for you then that's great. You know, but one when it comes down to it. This is a reason why Jesus said I am the way, the truth to life and no one comes to the father but through me.

That was his words well and as we know that there is only one truth right so only one truth. So let's let's go back to that that no absolute truth. And that's with the been tossing David Barton. Folks if you have a note that David Barton is really need to look it up. I had the pleasure of hearing them of the men's retreat a couple years back and just what an amazing amazing ease walking scholar and he understands the Scripture. He understands the intent of the founding forefathers.

In fact, I think Pat Grenfell probably he's the single largest of his organization's single largest private holder of all documents by the founding fathers in those early years. If I remember correctly, incidentally, are you can't believe it will have markedly more. I know well then that's truth getting put out there versus an opinion and see that's what most people don't realize illegal is 29 of our founding fathers signed the Constitution right that weren't at least what the school with a seminary school. I don't know if they will serve actual study focus of study was theology and religion but they were rather at a theology summit/seminary school for member correctly in the that's working we discussed so far away from a pet to be quite honest in the back to the young folks are, how can you and people to listen to how and how do you try to impact the young folks that you're dealing with these teenagers and preteens that you're engaged with one of the weekly basis. How do you get the message to the and are they open to that message. Only a large sum you understand the language of sport that we used the language of sports to share seven simple principles or we call them winning place for life and went to lunch. Note writing a book of million. I ask a Hall of Fame sportswriter to give me stories knowing and yet years worth of stores to choose from bottom, but we tried to share just like you understand what we coach looks like.

Let's just pick one that you just because like the Bryant legendary know why was the so good at what he did there were certain plays that he always ran. It was things that he always did that resulted in a formula of success in our modern day-to-day Nick Sabin Natalie Sweeney you see those guys ran think they got there place if they run and they put players in the position in which they would run the correct execution of their role and that play so that it scorched touchdowns or creates turnover, not defense.

And so they are always outscoring their opponent and they have more W lost and so if they found some principles that work and cost everybody right that the lead-in to break your site. If they found winning every vital place right that so. Take right folks will be right back. I was so happy to join this and will be back with you in just a moment to WC MM would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month and Bible discussions and fellowship after the best breakfast in town meeting location is in their gracious posterior First Christian Church in Kernersville, 1130 N.

Remember, affordable chiropractic on the W. Lexington Ave. in High Point Hall 336-885-1987. Welcome back man talk radio It's join with us this afternoon. Patzer back room for [we talk about the things that work and create a winning strategy in this and in sports. That's what most people will be a part of. We talked about several weeks ago, but everybody gets a trophy.

No matter what their performances in today's time seems to be, you know you have the worst record in the conference, but you can get a participation trophy versus something you worked and earned as being one of the top teams, etc. so to point people will be associated with the winning group and we know that following Christ is the ultimate when and that's the ultimate team to be on why you're here on earth. And then of course the rewards, the victory comes after we've I will have victory here on earth but the ultimate reward comes when we leave here and go to Sprint spend eternity with her father, a man came man and and what what what drives the inside of a young man young woman want to be great at what they did.

If I can help them do that and I can share with them the game plan to be the best they can be at their particular skills on their own land.

What what you have to give me this can help me get to my goal in my destination and that's what we spend the time of those in those irrefutable, absolute, street, and there are seven of them, that we share with them and and that's what we go with them and you can see how their transcended his things that we were doing when we were playing in what we're doing now is is dad's and father's and in and husbands and workmen be in a sign that you know that those are things that simple platelike direction. If I follow direction of the head coach and his game plan that I'm to play on game day is right or if I follow direction of the heavenly father is my head coach that I'm a play this life to the fullest and that comes to that relationship with Christ that's out that first play of direction, so I don't have to lean on my own understanding but I think if I acknowledge him in all my ways to make the head coach, not an advisor and advisory is not necessarily going to help you that much.

If you not going to follow the directions to achieve. Got a good head coach is enough. He says if he says John you just did you say how hot that's right you well. I take that under advisement coach I am not feeling like jumping today. Got a mouth that play is that's a Hello direction setting those goals and listening that direction.

You gotta have determination play number two you know and Proverbs 3030 it says be like a muddy line of the creature. Note read, and so that is so important. Once you get that direction. Like in Proverbs 3, five and six races. Trust me with all your heart and don't legally understand, acknowledge me in all your ways I'll direct your path I will dwell that have strike. It's got a go somewhere and so we are on that destination way you can hit adversity is not if, when and so are you to give out or you show some grit. Are you initial determination and you and I both can share this testimony so heart beat Valley times what you have to just reach in the God and he had to pull you through that moment that he didn't take you out of it.

People just really walk through with Psalm 23.

Good Shepherd of the Valley of the shadows of death of dreams or whatever it may have been in. That's what he saying to the listener. Now is is whatever you found yourself about your she is there with you.

With his rod and your staff to comfort. She did walk you through that place to still get to the place that destination.

To that direction, but how you get there so important are the disciplines that you practice diligently every day is her physical, mental, emotional, spiritual disciplines right now is that the heartbeat of of walking out your faith or walking out your journey to be going from good to great. It's the only way to go to a heart of service. It's all about me. That's not the kind of teammate you want is gotta be about how to we walked just like today. It's not about one particular person or or or race or anything.

It's about us, it's about Lee about the nation about all of us together in it together and so that's what's so important that we get to that place of of you know were part of all mankind is working together and when were not working together got a call that out and listlessness worked out.

Let's repent or change your mind of the direction you're going and let's get together back a part of all, you know, the whole human race. Everybody together, working together and so those are important so there's a four place that we try to share now the last three are very very important one is discernment you so along the way, if you're not hitting the mark got a look at the man here and use discernment. Hebrews 514 we share with them yet.

Have your senses trained to discern what is good and evil, right and wrong, and so that way you're able to, you know, just like a baseball player looking at see is that a striker ball and if the umpire because of the strike is not his opinion is trying to call it over the plate. Sometimes knowing I think the blind on the call it, but is not. It is not history try to do trying to figure out what the ball the strike is it is something that's in the strike zone. It should got it to start her tail and the same thing in life you gotta see what's coming at you. Is this the strike that I can swing at or is it a blog I need to let go by and So important and then the other is destiny. You're always on play away from destiny and what is your moment that you're preparing for its you know it could be your wide receiver. He's preparing for this moment to make the winning catch the helpless team when it carried off the field on the shoulders of his teammates the ultimate destiny is sharing the love of Christ. Some eternal destination is forever altered because you share with them the love of Jesus and now their new creation in Christ, so that so big.

But it all doesn't make sense if one final thing we share with them is about the grace. The grace of God we call grace arrayed don't have the grace can keep up the pace is like pushing a car without gas in it so you can have the goals you have all this together but just like Adam at all the systems together linger before God just lifeless, but to God. Marie is Brett NTL city come alive, and if anything comes alive. And now you're back to the very first thing of direction again so they work altogether that God created you for a purpose and a reason. What is that reason. And so so important for us to share with the next generation just waiting play. They can run those in their school life and their relationships, their scorched life in their life or drama life or whatever they loved it. I can find God's direction and it and then diligently plaster disciplines. Inspired by his Spirit filled with the spirit to fulfill their destiny which they were called thereby, why am I here what am I doing here what am I supposed to do what was created for you. Just you know if you're just a bunch of sales that were thrown together you're an accident you're just evolving.

That's the dehumanization of the secularized gloss and the more we secularize our community the more dehumanizing it gets. And there's going to be more George Boyd skill that's that's what's going to be sad but if we turn to God. That's not gonna happen because every soul is precious inside.

Everyone's priceless master. We spent a lot of time and from one burden on but then thought about very carefully what you made and there is your pack is great to not enact when they hear that when they been caring at all. More in the classroom or somewhere else. Is there a mistake about it cares about it and here wow created. I've been thought about more than someone who is about all the changes all self-esteem thing is this, a dozen pets and the best will.

Are you seeing that those are 7 Winning Pl. for life and I will have you repeat those here will begin in the last 30 seconds to minutes asserted by this listing can write these down and also textbooks available where Pat ought to be an agent because Michael okay great and that's okay. I encourage you to get got signed copy great great asset. Great tool for your life matter what your age to pack back to the young folks here the teenagers. What is your perception of what they're being given at home. Is there that we resigned ourselves to letting the iPads and the phones occupier children as a whole and another's exception out there, but as if ubiquitous percentage percentage basis for 50% of the kids there not been taught the fundamentals of there being left to their own devices to find these things out 60% in your encounter and maybe be involved in sports is more smaller number D can you quantify that it is hard to put a number on it which you can see walking down the hallway. 95% of them are looking down at device versus looking up hello to their friends. You know I walking in the mall you can just see how many are looking at a divide versus talking to somebody that standing right beside them and on that desk with that the tail still sign is who's occupying their agreement on one spot lights out versus let's put it over there audit somewhere when allowed. Yeah, just not allowed at the table that Francis will take a basket at the doorway, thereby splintered by someone to come in the door to grade. It is a great strategy really isn't folks relisting it is never too late to change the path of pattern you know if you've been one of those that have given the kids full access to their phone and not controlling with a going baby's time start limiting the time to go back to the old phones to text and capability. In this phone for nothing says that a 10-year-old Ms. have access to the Internet while you're out with no supervision and plus look at the interactions strike that to communicate work alongside the teammates. Folks were so happy, joyous, Pat would you give us 77 principles when place for life. I quiver just direction and termination discernment identity is the power of God grace array.

Amen Pat, thank you so much for spring.

Great. Happy folks join the body fellowship.
