Key Quotes (Full Transcript of Conversation Here)

  • 09:51 – “I just pray. The best youth work ever did, I pray, they show up.
  • 14:33 – “After a while, I got real tired of wussy Christians. I mean, it’s sad. We’re all commanded to make disciples, and we do a really poor job of making disciples. We think it’s, to me, it was like disciple making wasn’t a list of things you have to learn about or a program. You know, if it was if I was going to make disciples, I had to share my life with them and they could see how I live and that’s a bigger point.
  • 15:29 – “The most important thing I would love to tell fathers is that the spiritual authority that they have in the home is not to boss people around or be an authority like we think of it. Spiritual authority is to protect their family. If he’s protected really well in that way he has a lot of spiritual authority to protect his children so that Satan doesn’t have the legal rights to go add his kids through the father.”
