S3EP37 - In The Name

Pastor Newms:

[0:11] All right we're they can hear us.

 

Pastor Bill:

[0:13] Cool we said it's so weird.

 

Pastor Newms:

[0:19] Although the little weekly episode thing didn't didn't show for some reason.

 

Pastor Bill:

[0:29] The image that's weird.

 

Pastor Newms:

[0:43] I don't remember what button it is to look at the other thing to launch there's a button I can press and it lets me edit a screen while I'm displaying a different screen. Try to see why but I don't know how to do it for some reason.

Like I can't.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:53] With our faces live.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:54] Yeah or else it'll restart the countdown.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:57] Why was there one-and-a-half countdowns in that.

 

Pastor Newms:

[2:02] Where did we have ready.

 

Pastor Bill:

[2:02] You know just want to show everybody has plenty of time to show up.

 

Pastor Newms:

[2:08] Divided we have 17 and a half thingies why was there 45 minutes of countdown Newms was playing with stuff again.

 

[2:20] Hey go go big or go home man.

 

Pastor Bill:

[2:27] That is the Texas motto go big or go back to California that's just that's how we roll. It's already people have been moving here from California its rear.

 

Pastor Newms:

[2:39] And the funny thing is like California is claiming it's not happening they're like no one's actually leaving I saw.

 

Pastor Bill:

[2:50] People are showing up all the time from California in Texas I just moved here from California.

 

Pastor Newms:

[2:56] I saw this news article it was like the great California migration is not actually happening and I was like. Huh that's interesting all right I don't even want to read the article because yeah. Hmm. Well it's one of those percentages let's look at percentages the number of people that are leaving really isn't that big it just feels like it's huge because.

 

Pastor Bill:

[3:34] It's a feel the impact here. Of all the people who are coming to Texas from other states it feels like the majority of them are coming from California.

 

Pastor Newms:

[3:49] And there's this other thing going on right now in New York it was Morgan's the CEO of Morgan Stanley I think it was released this thing about how, they are not going to continue. Employees cannot expect to make New York rates if they're not working in New York. Because during the pandemic you know a lot of people won't work from home and then a lot of people moved because companies are like we're going to go to work from home.

As a benefit you know blah blah blah and now some companies are like okay it's time to come back and people are like.

 

[4:39] Or I don't want to and they're like okay well we're not going to pay you the same because if you're not having his argument was if you're not having to pay to live in New York why should I pay you like you live in New York.

And it was like I was like hmm. Well obviously we now know why the CEO of Stanley Morgan house and the CEO of Stanley Morgan pays his employees which is bare minimum hey they can see your face now I didn't do any countdown for you they can see your face now.

 

Pastor Bill:

[5:17] Cool I'm clean my glasses for like the last three minutes.

 

Pastor Newms:

[5:20] It was literally like one second but I was just like hmm.

 

Pastor Bill:

[5:28] Okay so officially welcome to the live recording of season 3 episode 37 of the Berean Manifesto; Faith, Hope, and Love for the Modern Christian if you're listening to this as a podcast that has been proved recorded,

then you are invited to come join us on Sunday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Central Standard Time, most Sundays we take a Sunday off here or there from time to time but it's rare that we take a Sunday off and we would love for you to come and watch live as we broadcast, Pastor Newms and myself recording this podcast you can do that on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch. We used to have Periscope before they went Belly Up, and hopefully Twitter will follow suite because that is a dark place with lots of hurting people that want to hurt, and so.

 

Pastor Newms:

[6:35] It's cuz the moderation is so low the the the community guidelines allow for so much it's kind of like.

 

Pastor Bill:

[6:43] It's bad man.

 

Pastor Newms:

[6:44] It's kind of like super super publicized Reddit because Twitter allows pretty much anything.

 

Pastor Bill:

[6:53] I never go onto Twitter the only stuff that shows all the Twitter from my stuff is stuff that's pushed their from other places as an automatic push I never go to Twitter to post I never go to Twitter to read I,

I got disgusted by Twitter a very long time ago, and I think Matt Smith's doctor said it best when he said Twitter so.

 

Pastor Newms:

[7:25] Which I updated my pops and one of them wrong side is an adipose.

 

Pastor Bill:

[7:34] Barely see that yeah.

 

Pastor Newms:

[7:35] I know I tried to install some nice lighting.

 

Pastor Bill:

[7:39] There you go now I can see it.

 

Pastor Newms:

[7:40] And I thought it was going to work and it doesn't and shows up really really bad in stream and then I tried to mess with it.

 

Pastor Bill:

[7:46] You're with your red lights off I can actually see the axe now.

 

Pastor Newms:

[7:52] Which makes no sense because the whole reason why we did it was because you couldn't see it two weeks ago.

 

Pastor Bill:

[7:59] So what it looks like right now is that you painted the shape of an axe in vanta black 2.0 onto the desk that's what it looks like.

 

Pastor Newms:

[8:10] Totally not the case hey you want to see how fast we get band off YouTube.

 

Pastor Bill:

[8:16] Pretty quick if you keep swinging that around.

 

Pastor Newms:

[8:18] Sorry I just thought about that, one of my favorite channels on YouTube actually got demonetized this week and the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[8:27] Oh no.

 

Pastor Newms:

[8:28] The two people that run the channel were crying effectively because.

 

Pastor Bill:

[8:34] Such a mat such a Minefield trying to monetize your YouTube and then, these companies it data either don't make it clear enough or people just don't think to hire a lawyer to read the community guidelines to explain to them.

 

Pastor Newms:

[8:50] Well that's.

 

Pastor Bill:

[8:51] Isn't isn't acceptable.

 

Pastor Newms:

[8:52] This particular show like this particular channel is so big that they actually get approval from YouTube before anything is posted, so they go through an approval approval process to post so every video they submit it,

they wait and then it gets approved and that's after the editors that they have that they've hired, actually go in and put extra stuff and you know the whole nine and, so all of their videos are approved by YouTube and then someone went in, and demonetized in one day 3/4 of their backlog and they post multiple videos a day and it, they've made it their entire, you know social media is their entire career it's a it's a I don't even think their fiance's it's MRX play,

MRX plays and he does streaming and she does streaming and then they have a channel together where they do stuff and they're both on Twitch and you know there, they're funny and.

 

[10:09] It's it's so it was so heartbreaking because I saw like the thumbnail you know they do the click bait thumbnails it's one of the things they're known for and so you're like who who's and and I was like, wait why is she crying that's not a fun clickbait thumbnail usually it's like something that's, borderline inappropriate with like a thing over it so that way it's not not inappropriate like you and you're like I um, and and they were just on their crying because, angry angry and crying and you know just everything because their entire Channel and they actually showed screenshots of it and it was like just due to do to all of them demonetised and then there'd be one that wasn't,

and then all of them and then one that wasn't for some reason and it's just like. And all of them had been approved gone through the approval it's just social media and making a career out of it is rough and, you know every now and then I think about it I'm like I think I could do that I think we could I think I can get and then I see stuff like that I'm like I don't wanna, I'll stick to my day job like.

 

Pastor Bill:

[11:30] Have the rug pulled out from underneath you like that is.

 

Pastor Newms:

[11:34] And I know no logic behind it is the other frustrating thing you know there's no, it's like I was talking to another friend of mine who's working on a game and he's like we're going to have it's a streamer based game and I was like oh that's great and sounds great and he's like and we're going to have you know one of the aspects is you can play, music because people like to play and I was like what kind and it's like oh well it's drm-free, you know licensed and allow and you're like well, just so you know twitch keeps popping people for that still because it's close enough to a regular song that their algorithm picks it up and pops them Cyberpunk 2077 went through that where they had to, there was a setting that was like monetized or demonetized. Music and then people were still getting popped for having music and it's like so the world of social media is a Minefield to say the least, trying to make a, anything out of it you're trying to make money off of it.

 

Pastor Bill:

[12:53] Yeah.

 

Pastor Newms:

[12:55] Or have people find your stuff either way you know.

 

[13:05] Yeah and that's the other thing if your if your stuff is not mocked the monetized stuff of course gets recommended more often than the demonetized stuff so you know,

anyway how was your week Pastor Bill.

 

Pastor Bill:

[13:21] You're supposed to say about your week first otherwise I get all off track and.

 

Pastor Newms:

[13:25] I just did a 13-minute diatribe on something completely different do I really have to.

 

Pastor Bill:

[13:30] How was your week Pastor Newms.

 

[13:42] Dollar dollar hay dolor de la a $8,000 $8,000.

 

Pastor Newms:

[13:49] See he claims it folks you all saw it and heard it something anyway that was pretty good busy I changed my office around a little bit, like I said I refresh to the behind me I installed lights that don't actually work let's count you you want to you want to play don't count.

 

Pastor Bill:

[14:06] Let's count the screens - uno dos tres cuatro cinco.

 

Pastor Newms:

[14:11] So so and then and then I did this.

 

Pastor Bill:

[14:15] Go screens.

 

Pastor Newms:

[14:17] And it just it I don't I hate it I don't like it at all.

 

Pastor Bill:

[14:24] Is there a is there a Min because because the podcast version they can't hear what you're saying but it's the string of red lights.

 

Pastor Newms:

[14:30] Yep.

 

Pastor Bill:

[14:31] Over top of your pops behind you and over top of your new acts that you bought is there a lip on that shelf under that a shovel you could put it under to hide the light.

 

Pastor Newms:

[14:41] There's not, and so it's all good it's just it's one of those things where and you know those LED lights are like seven bucks so it's not like I've blown a bunch of money on it or something it's just, frustrating when you're like this would be nice and then you put it on your like that looks terrible but yes I do now have so I have my two screens for, my personal computer and my camera in the Middle High, and then I have my main computer and then I have work screen one, which is the actual laptop which you guys can't see and then screen to and then screen 3 which you guys can see and then my whiteboard, up above it and then Tina's desk is still there because we haven't moved it yet.

 

[15:31] Yeah I rotate it around my pops though I like to do that every now and then, I got some of the Skyrim ones back out the the White run guard, which if you don't know cause you don't know a fun thing about him is there's a line in the game where every time you you know you talked to the guards there's random things they say write one of the things is, haven't I took an arrow to the knee, and if they say it constantly and it's just it gets to a point where like I'm going to put an arrow in your knee like you're just annoying and the pop actually has an arrow in his knee.

 

[16:16] And so it's like how nice so.

 

Pastor Bill:

[16:21] Yeah so my work is good caught the season finale of Loki season one lucky finale it was fantastic no spoilers but it was visually stunning, I highly recommend everyone go see the Loki series on Disney Plus.

 

Pastor Newms:

[16:40] That's another thing that I hate social media for but that's beside the point.

 

Pastor Bill:

[16:44] Oh because of spoilers.

 

Pastor Newms:

[16:45] While of the spoiler alert but while they're doing spoiler alert the tags on the bottom and the text behind them clearly spoils it and you're like it doesn't it doesn't help. You've already spoiled it for me now so I know who the bad guy is because your class played as him and then you say spoiler alert as opposed to just cosplaying as the guy and if you get it you get it but now.

 

Pastor Bill:

[17:17] Even that you went a little farther after I just said no spoilers.

 

Pastor Newms:

[17:17] Anyway no I didn't I didn't go any far I said there's a main bad guy what does that tell anybody there's always a main bad guy.

 

Pastor Bill:

[17:31] Sometimes it was a main bad girl.

 

Pastor Newms:

[17:36] I'm using the gender inclusive guy not the actual guy.

 

Pastor Bill:

[17:41] The guy named guy guy fog to folks who blew up the tried to blow up Parliament.

 

Pastor Newms:

[17:46] Like like I don't actually know who the guy is I just know that there is a guy I guess.

 

Pastor Bill:

[17:55] Okay.

 

Pastor Newms:

[17:56] But let's be honest it's Marvel so knowing there's a guy.

 

Pastor Bill:

[18:03] Knowing the list of bad guys from Marvel doesn't really help you.

 

Pastor Newms:

[18:06] Doesn't help you at all like and especially when you're talking about something like Loki because it's one of those where it's like who hasn't he made mad like anyone anyone.

 

Pastor Bill:

[18:20] HPuff says you could have said that a bad y'all Roxanne on YouTube says you could have said the big bad.

 

Pastor Newms:

[18:27] I hate the term the big bad.

 

Pastor Bill:

[18:28] HPuff also says bad person or bad them you didn't have to say bad guy.

 

Pastor Newms:

[18:33] I just said bad guy. I don't even yeah I said bad guy because the person I was complaining about was a guy I don't I don't even know if the character is to be honest.

 

Pastor Bill:

[18:49] So they're coming out with Pops that are based off the Loki he series and if you don't want spoilers then don't go look up the Pops because good Lord, um but there is one Pop in particular that I want but I can't tell you which one it is because just saying the name of the Pop would be a spoiler and I don't want to spoil the adventure for anybody that is going to go watch the Loki series, but there will be a season 2 which is fantastic, the final scene you know they do to they did an extra scene at the, mid-credits on the last episode and it was a file folder and a pancake down and put a stamp and then when the stamp came off it was a red stamp that said look he will return for season 2, which was how they confirmed that there'd be a season 2.

 

Pastor Newms:

[19:41] That's a nice way of confirming it.

 

Pastor Bill:

[19:44] So that was fun, and let's see we had some birthdays this week my mother-in-law her husband my father-in-law my son my wife, all of their birthdays were this week so we celebrated all of that so that was fun and we had a,

party yesterday where we dressed up as characters from the show Gravity Falls, and it was amazing it was so much fun I dressed up as Sous I put a big question mark in Black duct tape on my shirt and I talked in a Soos voice all day, um except for when I was on the phone with Newms I use my normal voice for that but the rest of the day when I was at the party I was using my Soos voice.

 

Pastor Newms:

[20:39] Which I had to not get get mad at somebody but I got real mad at somebody that was at the party with you because I heard them twice call you Zeus. And I was like.

 

Pastor Bill:

[20:57] It isnt Zeus. I can't tell you nominate my name is Soos its short for Jesus it's Soos.

 

Pastor Newms:

[21:08] It was it was.

 

Pastor Bill:

[21:09] What.

 

Pastor Newms:

[21:10] It was that is a show that I really wish they had made more of, it ends well but there's always next summer like.

 

Pastor Bill:

[21:25] Right it could have gone another summer.

 

Pastor Newms:

[21:28] You could have easily gone back I want Dipper as an adult.

 

Pastor Bill:

[21:31] Crammed so much into one summer like so much so yeah.

 

Pastor Newms:

[21:38] But it was funny because the girls were watching it the girls are always watching it at some point it's kind of one of their go-to shows but they were watching it at some point, and it's really funny hearing some of the voices from other shows that the Collision house does not recommend, but comes on in about two hours and.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:02] On a human level we recommend them for people who have strong spiritual beliefs that allow them. To watch and interact with things like that but as a church.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:14] Yes we do.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:16] I commend those that are weak of spirit.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:18] Yes.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:19] And so are easily beset to avoid certain.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:23] Yes I do not recommend in any way people watch shows that are inappropriate that they cannot handle because they are spiritually not at a point where they can but.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:36] For those of you that.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:36] The rest of us.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:37] The podcast Pastor Newms is currently holding up a pop of Rick and Morty where Rick is a bear.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:45] No it's a clone.

 

Pastor Bill:

[22:46] Well it's a he's a Teddy Rick is a wasn't that the Rick from another, another dimension.

 

Pastor Newms:

[22:56] So I keep some of my Pops in my room Mister Poopy Butthole is one of them, HP Phoenix asked where my Mr. Poopy Butthole Pop is and he stays in my room just because it doesn't need to be behind me because there's only so many times you can say Mr. Poopy Butthole and I think we are already past the allowable times so.

 

[23:30] I love that show.

 

Pastor Bill:

[23:31] Okay.

 

Pastor Newms:

[23:31] Oh so what I was going to say about that show you mentioned the Loki ending getting moving thing so they've done something with Adult Swim we're at the end of each episode, on Adult Swim they actually do like a 45 second minute-and-a-half someone, that was instrumental in that particular episode talks about the episode so it's always the main creator, and then it's one of the writers or one of the animators or somebody else and they do like this really short and they have been so good because Rick and Morty always does the ending credit scene, but then this little extra snippet of.

 

[24:24] I can't believe we did this, why did we do that Dan came to us and said this is where the episode is going to end and we all went, huh how we going to get there and he went and walked out of the room so we wrote it you know so it's just it's just kind of you know it's been fun seeing some of those because you get that little bit of a not like the DS9 the other day where the extra credits came up, well me and Pastor Bill were watching it and it was like,

to our behind-the-scenes we're like no it is 11:45 at night we are not watching a two hours for.

 

Pastor Bill:

[25:10] Yeah I was like is this was this was 10 minutes cool I'm not sitting here for two hours and listen to them talk about DS9 season one.

 

Pastor Newms:

[25:22] And I think it's an interesting thought looking at the past to now I thought that was a good analogy, of where we've come from you know DVD box sets with you know hundreds of credit hours and a thousand extra this and people are like no, I need 45 seconds at the end of every episode like and so it's interesting to see how the world has changed.

 

Pastor Bill:

[25:50] That stuff out.

 

Pastor Newms:

[25:52] No one wants to sit for two hours and hear you talk about it well I won't say that nobody does but.

 

Pastor Bill:

[25:58] The only making of you know Insight whatever thing that I feel is at all the way through the whole thing is the one that came with the. Knight's Tale with Heath Ledger.

 

Pastor Newms:

[26:17] Okay why.

 

Pastor Bill:

[26:18] Yeah because that movie is awesome.

 

Pastor Newms:

[26:21] I agree okay.

 

Pastor Bill:

[26:28] Yeah it is why I don't watch any other ones anymore, anyway so now it's time for Pastor Newms favorite segments and since we're on an odd-numbered episode we pull a card from my deck and instead of the new deck that.

 

Pastor Newms:

[26:47] Or just because.

 

Pastor Bill:

[26:48] Lovely ladies that the holding household got for us.

 

Pastor Newms:

[26:50] Or just because last week we did want to find you know whichever way you want to look at it all right Pod Decks let's go it's better be valid is better be valid.

 

Pastor Bill:

[26:59] Yeah Pod Decks its products is awesome.

 

Pastor Newms:

[27:13] No I'll be done at some point when we're dead continue.

 

Pastor Bill:

[27:22] What are you most excited about right now and we already answered that question so we can move on, we're talking about your weekend my weekend things going okay what are we what are you most excited about right now bud. But I felt I felt Canadian for a second.

 

Pastor Newms:

[27:45] I was that was gross I think the thing I'm most excited about is your computer coming in soon.

 

Pastor Bill:

[27:53] They are actually building it right now yeah I got an email, this week that finally six business weeks after we ordered it who talks that way who says.

 

Pastor Newms:

[28:04] Foreign companies.

 

Pastor Bill:

[28:05] Business weeks anyway six business weeks after we ordered it I finally got the. Notification that they are collecting the pieces from throughout the warehouse and assembling my computer that we ordered that will go right down there on my left hand side. And stick out. Probably five six inches from where the desk ends here.

 

[28:46] Mr. Greg he joins us on Twitch he says I'm like I got distracted by buying and crafts.

 

Pastor Newms:

[28:54] It just just break your wall why not.

 

Pastor Bill:

[28:58] McCain was hang in there and.

 

Pastor Newms:

[28:59] Hmm.

 

Pastor Bill:

[29:02] Cinema release it all the way over here or I'm doing stuff and so I'm off to the far right no ma'am I'm you know, I'm over here ish more you know at my desk but for the purposes of this video recording I'm over here and then so that is a space for Pastor Newms to be over here on my left hand side, Chillin blow The Ekklesian House logo, which aluminum doing my hands just like kind of guessing where things are since I can't actually see the screen.

 

Pastor Newms:

[29:35] I'm here in the logos up there see.

 

Pastor Bill:

[29:40] There you go you are there and the logos about you.

 

Pastor Newms:

[29:44] Not above you above me.

 

Pastor Bill:

[29:46] No not about me what's above me is my free hugs shirt.

 

Pastor Newms:

[29:49] No it's to the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[29:52] This is leftish of me my left is not your luck just.

 

Pastor Newms:

[29:56] I know that's why I went because it was just easy here, have fun - transcribing that it's over in the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[30:05] Yeah mmm over the moon corner of your screen.

 

Pastor Newms:

[30:10] I'm very excited about that because.

 

Pastor Bill:

[30:15] Oh yeah we didn't really dance.

 

Pastor Newms:

[30:16] We are going to start streaming more individually together playing games. And it's going to be fun because I have a ton of games that I've played for years or games that I've thoroughly enjoyed and you've watched part of and now we'll get to, go at it and we're going to be very careful with how we do this because. We there's a lot to get through there's ten years of games you haven't played to get through and it's going to be a minute so.

 

Pastor Bill:

[31:01] But we're both storyline people so it's going to work out great because we're actually going to take the time on games that have storylines to get Destroyer lines instead of just blowing right past them, like you were talking about a narc, Zombies Storyline stuff and the people you've been playing with it's been all about let's build this as build this achieve this was achieve this was move on and there's so much story that, we can go back and just.

 

Pastor Newms:

[31:28] Well and, and there were years of me being at Pizza Hut the main thing about that one is there were years that I missed and so like they've played a lot more than I have and so for them they can get to a certain point real quick and I'm like, I have stone and so it's yeah.

 

Pastor Bill:

[31:52] HPuff says the chronicles of Pastor Bill.

 

[32:07] As some burping that was going on I was trying to keep it as quiet as possible.

 

Pastor Newms:

[32:10] Don't do that don't do that it's rude.

 

Pastor Bill:

[32:13] All right so this week oh I didn't talk about what I was excited about I'm excited about.

 

[32:29] I'm sure there's something.

 

[32:35] A new computers coming in.

 

Pastor Newms:

[32:39] Haha stole that one try.

 

Pastor Bill:

[32:41] 6:30 now, I've got some side project that I've that I has been rolling around in my head for a long time and I'm I've started working on that and I'm pretty excited about that I was I was, giving Gerg a run-through of, what the main outline of the story is and he was like dude you sound like somebody who saw a movie or discovered a new show and you really excited to tell me about it because you think I should watch it and I'm like what kind of am,

and and as you know it's a story I'm working on but it's a science fiction thing and I'll be using a pseudonym and, instead of putting the name my name on it it'll be a pseudonym that I won't share here because I want to keep those separate.

 

Pastor Newms:

[33:28] That would kind of defeat the purpose of having a.

 

Pastor Bill:

[33:32] Of the purpose of having a pseudonym so I won't tell you anything about the story or what messaging is going to be because that would defeat the purpose. I'm pretty excited about that and hopefully that will.

 

[33:51] Yeah I don't make any money so I'm hoping that'll I can make some money because I've tried applying to jobs, lots and lots and lots of jobs and getting lots and lots and lots of ghost things and lots of rejections and. For interviews I've had over the last six years. Two of them were legitimate and I still didn't get the job and the rest of them were those, yeah we're calling ourselves a marketing company but we really just want you to go stand in a retail store and harass people to try to get them to buy our products.

 

Pastor Newms:

[34:40] Which still doesn't help because you can't stand for any amount of time which is the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[34:46] Exact I need a sitting job I need an office job I need something I can because I can't I can't when I go to the store I have to use one of those little cards I can't when I go to cook I have to use this you know chair in the kitchen,

there's that and looking for a job is yeah each puff on Church says looking for work is horrible and Mr. Groggy says yes and and then there's this whole, thing that you see about jobs are posted, people apply to them and then they get rejected and then within the next week the same job gets reposted, because the government is subsidizing companies who are looking for work but if they feel that work then they won't get the subsidy anymore, and so there's this thing that companies are doing where they post a job and then reject all the applicants for not being qualified and then reposting the job with never actually intending to fill it because they're receiving major subsidies from the government, to be looking for filling positions so.

 

Pastor Newms:

[36:05] That's no fun.

 

Pastor Bill:

[36:06] That's no fun now I we went from excited to bummer and tonight's topic, we are yes Mr. Groggy said it we are it is called in the name we are talking about in the name and the verse that we brought that I used for the picture,

for some reason I no longer have pulled up, is from a story that Pastor Newms really likes, and he can tell the story if he wants if not that's fine too it's from Acts chapter 19, and the verse is chat is verse 15 I'm going to pull it up in my CSB, I don't know something about the way the King James phrases this particular one I'm not happy with so it says the evil spirit answered them I know Jesus and I recognized Paul but who are you, and do you want to tell the story or should I just summarized from them text.

 

Pastor Newms:

[37:16] I mean I do love this story so.

 

Pastor Bill:

[37:19] I know you do that's why I offered to let you.

 

Pastor Newms:

[37:22] There were these brothers and this is going to be the not the CSB version but the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[37:28] This is gonna be the new Newmsian version.

 

Pastor Newms:

[37:32] Version so there are these brothers and they decided that, you know they watched Paul and they watched other people casting out demons and doing Miracles and they were like man we can make some money so they were like let's do it so they go out and they start casting out some low-level demons from people and they start you know they create this business idea of hey we're going to cast out from demons and then.

 

[38:01] They were not using adequate, faith they were not using they were not Christians relying on Jesus they were just they had done this as a business proposition and, so they get to this particular house and they're like in the name of the, Jesus of Paul which to begin with and then they're like, you know get out and the demon in the person turns around and goes, I know Jesus, I know who that is and I even know Paul who are you and then proceeds to throw them through the door of the building they were at into the street because he was having none of it, well.

 

[39:03] Because I don't know if it was a male demon that was rude it just throws it right out the window and his like come again and it's such a, interesting thing to see because so often people always pull the, well I know so and so and like, you know it's one of those words like and and they did like the worst way of doing it too it's like my uncle knows a guy who runs this place and he said you know it wasn't even like a valid like you don't know the one who gives you power, you've claimed a guy that you knew cuz you heard of him who uses the power of the guy. To go do it and it's so it's a fun one because, I love seeing people get get what's coming to him and they got it right through the door so, yeah now Bill is how you the theological part about it.

 

Pastor Bill:

[40:22] Yeah so II one of the one of the details that. Always gets me is that when they when they when they left they left beat up and naked and so it's like okay.

 

Pastor Newms:

[40:43] How bad did you mess up.

 

Pastor Bill:

[41:02] Okay so In the Bible gives us a name for who these people are right there called the Sons of Sceva which is interesting. I don't think that's actually their name I think that is a, I think that's an inside joke amongst the Believers of the followers of the way to call them Skiva, because this words Skiva has two meanings one of those meanings is mind reader, okay and if you think about the region where they're living in and everything that's going on in that region this this wouldn't be, a compliment or an Accolade to call someone a mind reader is basically you know you're a charlatan you're a hack you're a goof you know you're just trying to make money off of people, and the other definition is much more an insult wouldn't be an insult now but it is an insult then and the definition is left-handed.

 

Pastor Newms:

[42:19] Which is the one that Strong's uses heavily is the there.

 

Pastor Bill:

[42:21] Yes heavily and at the time that was a incredible insult to call someone left handed you got to think about. When you're greeting someone.

 

Pastor Newms:

[42:37] I'll say it cuz you're nicer so you you shake hands with your right hand you eat with your right hand, toilet paper was in the didn't exist yet so God gave you a left hand so.

 

Pastor Bill:

[42:55] So if you're left handed then you're yeah.

 

Pastor Newms:

[43:00] Roxanne says poop shoveler.

 

Pastor Bill:

[43:02] Poop shovel, they were poop shovelers in their handedness it just it's all kinds of evidence soul in the day nowadays someone can be left-handed that's not a big deal that's not an insult we have modern. Contrivances we have modern facilities where doesn't matter if your dominant hand his right hand or left hand but in the day to call someone ask Eva, that's an insult and so that's why I'm thinking that's not actually their name.

 

Pastor Newms:

[43:38] Which they didn't call them Skeva even they went one step farther.

 

Pastor Bill:

[43:42] Son of Skiva.

 

Pastor Newms:

[43:46] You aren't even good enough to be called left-handed you are just the son of someone who was left like it's an extra level.

 

Pastor Bill:

[43:57] Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

 

Pastor Newms:

[44:02] It's not even like I was having this discussion with Biggs and my mom the other day and Jesus did the same thing he got to a point, we're he was tired of just calling people Hypocrites and just started making stuff up.

 

Pastor Bill:

[44:24] Whitewashed tomb.

 

Pastor Newms:

[44:25] Like just so like it's almost like you know.

 

Pastor Bill:

[44:29] You explain that was in me Jesus.

 

Pastor Newms:

[44:31] It's getting written down and the guys like yeah, scratch that out rewrite it that one's better and they just keeps going like you know it's it's you know it's just humorous some of those aspects when you, look at them.

 

Pastor Bill:

[44:53] For sure okay so what they did here is they went in and they said in the name, of the Jesus that Paul preaches or at least.

 

[45:09] That's how we translate that into our, Modern English okay now if we go back to the original and.

 

[45:24] We look at the words that are used there because over time we've collapsed a lot of Concepts together, and we've taken things that in the original context of a Greek sentence or the original context of a Hebrew sentence or the original context of a culture when you use a certain word it makes sense to mean a certain thing, even though it can have a dual meet right, and this is one of those words this word on Oma anoma which is 100% of the time, translated as the word as the word name, right it is translated as the word name except it doesn't just mean name, it means name it means called so nickname it means surname it means named as in you got your name changed and so now you are named, it also means Authority it also means character and so in this context when we read this, what they would have been saying is by the authority of the Jesus that Paul.

 

[46:49] Creatures right that is just the word name but by the authority now wait a second, Paul was out there, operating in that authority of that name he's not walking around going in the name of Jesus speak, now he is in the authority of someone who is a co-heir with Christ saying to be healed. Well Paul how do you have that ability well that's not me it's him that I'm in a relationship with and by that relationship I move in this, and so when we go back and reread certain places in scripture where it says in the name of right and so we for instance there is no other name by which man should be safe.

 

[47:49] What name is the translation there is name what name, the modern name Jesus the old English name Iosus the Greek Ieous, which means son of Zeus the Hebrew Yeshua the the the followers of the way began to call him,

because they didn't want to call him the son of Zeus and I thought that was heretical and there's this whole divide or people were like no we have to call him that because if the Romans are walking by and they hear us calling you anything else, calling him by his real name you know calling him the Messiah then they're going to kill us so we got to use this name that they posted above him in ridicule, we had to call them that otherwise they're going to kill us and there's other people going but we don't have to call them that why don't we just call them a word that describes what he is, yes sure uh in English would be pronounced Joshua nobody calls him Joshua even though that's the way it was written several times in the scriptures. But even that's not his real name right the prophecy isn't Isaiah say they would name him Emmanuel.

 

[49:09] And then you get to to Luke and the angel tells Mary, to name him and then if you look in everybody will you've got the Jesus that it says is in all caps, and this is an author's note to let you know they mistranslated what was being said here out of respect for the holiness, all of the name being spoken by the angel they miss translated it into a commonly accepted nickname.

 

[49:46] That's not actually what the angel said.

 

Pastor Newms:

[49:48] Yeah cuz in several in the Jewish culture a lot of, will not right Messianic Jews they won't write the full name there are a lot of people who want and then there.

 

Pastor Bill:

[50:05] Bill never use a no because it's disrespectful.

 

Pastor Newms:

[50:07] And then they don't they don't use they don't write all of Jehovah's name either when referring to got because it's disrespectful to write it wrong.

 

Pastor Bill:

[50:19] Do you have to write it they will take the pain or the Krill or whatever they're using and after they've written the name of the Lord they will break it, and put it in the fire because that pin has now touched the name of God and nothing else should be written with that device and they go get a new one. Right.

 

Pastor Newms:

[50:42] So I mean it's definitely it's definitely something that's been translated for so long as name but more it is the authority, and it's kind of like, I heard a preacher say it one time where it's like when you go in somewhere and you're like hey I need to get a loan and they're like well I don't know who you are well my father's this person okay cool here's alone you know because it's someone else's you're borrowing someone's Authority you're not borrowing their name because their name doesn't mean anything it's the.

 

Pastor Bill:

[51:19] And you're certainly not coming with him as I've seen some preachers preaching from the pulpit in 2021, calling themselves God almighty, because they are co-heirs with Christ and equal to Christ and Christ is God and therefore they are God and all Christians are God almighty.

 

[51:49] All right so now we're going to turn to Matthew chapter 28 okay and.

 

Pastor Newms:

[51:57] Short chapter.

 

Pastor Bill:

[52:02] Chapter 28 it is kind of short chapters no.

 

Pastor Newms:

[52:06] Usually I have to do more scrolling.

 

Pastor Bill:

[52:11] Matthew chapter 28 we're going to start in verse 18 take my Bible off my little.

 

[52:21] Holder here it says Jesus came near and said to them all authority has been given to me in heaven and on Earth, go therefore and Make Disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you and remember I am with you always to the end of the age, now we've talked extensively about what kind of baptism Jesus was talking about here and we brought up what John talks about that John baptized with water, Jesus came to be baptized with the Holy Spirit not with water so therefore any time Jesus says go baptized he's talking about the Holy Spirit he's not talking about water, even Jesus himself never baptized anyone if you go and you look anytime, where that ism is happening around Jesus it always makes note that Jesus was off resting on the shore while the disciples were doing the baptizing,

the water baptizing, and then Paul goes on to I didn't baptize anybody well maybe a couple of members of the household of Stephanas but I can't really remember if I did or not, you think if water baptism was that big of a deal Paul would remember whether or not he baptized two people in the household of Stephanas right.

 

[53:49] Set up but the topic of tonight is in the name, so he says that telling me the name of the father and the son of the Holy Spirit and so what do people do when they're for instance water baptized, I baptize you in the name of the Father the name of the son of the name of the Holy Spirit.

 

[54:09] Except that's not what it says it says it's the word Authority that has them in the authority, the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, so when you're leading someone into baptism whether its water baptism or batches the holy spirit because I'm not anti, water baptism I'm very much your relationship with God is your relationship with God if you study about water baptism and you feel like that's a good outward sign for you, to show that you've turned your heart over to the Lord then absolutely you should get water baptized, so I'm not anti water baptism I'm anti requiring it as part of Salvation because then that's not salvation anymore you've now created a law, and made salvation of no effort no effect Paul's words there, so when we go back to the original Greek even he uses the same word here again, in the name of the father it's that Oma it's in the authority of the father of.

 

[55:29] The Son and the Holy Spirit you move in that Authority, when you're when you're baptizing someone and this case baptizing them into the Holy Spirit baptizing them into the law of the spirit which is salvation right,

and Jesus came and all authority has been given to me in heaven and in Earth, there in Matthew chapter 28 verse 18 right all authority has been given to me go therefore and make disciples baptizing them in the authority of so all authority has been given to him, and did he use the word, Authority in verse 18 well.

 

[56:24] The the word that was used in verse 18 verse 28 that then is translated as Authority in the CSB and Power in the King James, is technically both power and authority let's just read what strong mr. strong had to say about it he says in me a sense of ability, privilege that is suggested, subjectively Force capacity competency Freedom or objectively mastery, concretely magistrate superhuman potentate token of control is delegated influence Authority jurisdiction Liberty Power right string, now the word itself is X who Sia, exousia does that sound like a an English word that you know exude.

 

[57:42] Exude, when you exude something it comes naturally to you because it is part of Who You Are, he says all authority has been given to me so, I exude this Authority this power this Liberty this this this right it is my strength I have competency here I have the freedom to do it, and I am using that and telling you to go out and do the same. He is empowering them not giving them a script.

 

[58:32] Which so many have gone and just used it as a script instead of going out and going well I'm moving the authority out. So I've seen so many people that they talk about demons demons here demons there and we just have to resist the demons and in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, okay okay you little demons running around laughing at you know but I used the name of Jesus well, you definitely spoke some words to him you definitely did. You definitely spoke some words to Modern English words.

 

Pastor Newms:

[59:16] And and the aspect is it's not that's what so many people get so incorrect In A lot of times is it's not, the words that have the power it's the authority behind the words so yes there are people, and by the way the reason I'm chuckling for those who can actually see my face is anytime Pastor Bill wants to get, to call out people that are have different beliefs, typically goes towards the southern, what I what I would call a Southern Baptist accent,

for people that are the leaders of churches in these small Podunk town where he had to grow up in and it just makes me, giggle because it is painful to hear because I've heard it too many times.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:00:16] Got it from the video that I watched a couple of weeks ago who was talking about what was he saying um.

 

[1:00:28] He was talking about they put in that evil mermaid shot down the street where you can get the devil's coffee and they took away my some restaurant that he loves they tore down the restaurant that I used to eat at so they could put it in that mermaid worshipping devil coffee shop and it is this thick Southern bat like this was the whole his whole sermon was all about they tore down, the restaurant he select to go to and put in a Starbucks and how that was evil and they shouldn't begin coffee, from that mermaid worshipping devil coffee shop.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:01:06] And and so what I was saying which is sadly people have that belief there are so many people who they, they focus on the wrong part of this there are people who walk in that Authority and they use the name, as well and it's, accurate because they're walking in the authority, so we're not talking about that let's be clear we're not we're not saying anyone who's ever baptized someone like this as built, or anyone who's ever preached a message like we're not trying to go that route, what we're trying to say is the important part is the authority not just the name there was a there's a couple of, vampires dick movies and shows and and I like fantasy so it happens and every now and then you.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:02:14] Power of Christ compels you.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:02:16] Does it does it when you go after when you go after someone without that power.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:02:30] Up like a sun is either.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:02:31] And in Jesus talks about it another place as well that you know you have to have, The Authority the you have to have prayed this out you have to make sure you have that spiritual gifting from God you have to you shouldn't be out just claiming Authority because you think you can when you aren't actually walking in, just claiming the authority as a good way to get yourself in trouble you can pick up a cross and shove it in a vampire's face unless you have the faith behind it it's going to eat you, and and I watching the movie will enjoy it because hypocrite.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:03:20] Enjoy it greatly.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:03:21] Get bit, and so it's just an aspect of the authority is what is so important and that's what I want to make sure is clear because sometimes Billiam is. More passionate about certain aspects and less. Cut and dry and so I want to make sure that that is clear did I compare your emotional and my logic accurately there okay.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:03:53] I don't know I'm apparently the emotional in that sentence so that's a new one on me.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:04:01] Wait wait wait excuse me.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:04:03] I knew you were going to let you get away with that.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:04:04] You're going to actually try like you're going to actually try to go you comparing me and you can go ahead and end for tonight we good we can 30.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:04:16] We're at 7:30 Force we're a little over so in Matthew Chapter 7, verse 21 I want to leave you guys with just a parting thought, and it is Matthew chapter 7 starting in verse 21 it says not everyone who says to me Lord Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven don't.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:04:44] Hey Bill okay try try again you cut out during the actual Reading part.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:04:54] I haven't started reading you can you hear me now okay, no I guess I have sorry reading, so let's pick back up in verse 22 because that's when it starts getting good on that day many will say to me Lord Lord didn't we prophesy in your name drive out demons in your name and do many miracles in your name, then I will announce to them I never knew you depart from me you lawbreakers this is that same word.

 

[1:05:29] On Omar, can be translated as name but it can also be translated as Authority in this context when you're reading and they say in your name, if you go back and you look at the original they're saying so sad.

 

[1:05:53] So sand Oma soap Sonoma soap Sonoma, in your Authority in your Authority in your there was no and even if it's the word name Authority whatever there is no, didn't I do these works because we relationship, we Authority we co are it's not of that's not what they're saying they're saying that at all they're saying in your, I tried to use your not our there was no relationship there, and so that's where you see this this bright here in these people that are talking about but I did go out and I did Ministry and I and I try to make the world a better place and it yeah, be gentle these things you had no salvation you had no relationship here this is this is not how this works, and so I just want to leave you know with that parting thought and you guys can go look that up and chew on that and see how that makes you feel so, that's what I have there you have anything else you want to add my wife on uh I'm sorry Roxanne on YouTube says wow bill is in some hardcore denial about that emotional stuff.

 

[1:07:21] Because everybody knows me knows I'm super emotional like about everything. I like when my when my friends have birthdays and they won't let me talk about it it really gets me like right here and it hurts.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:07:39] Remember I can press stop without you.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:07:41] I send them gifts anyway even though they told me not to and I'm like get over it, that's all I have to say about that and so now we'll do a 30 second buffer 30 second buffer 30 second buffer was that a little bunny rabbit no it wasn't 30.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:08:00] It was it was it was a bunny rabbit.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:08:03] 30 second buffer.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:08:04] 30 second buffer.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:08:07] We love you have a great week.

 

Pastor Newms:

[1:08:09] Please be safe.

 

Pastor Bill:

[1:08:11] And until next time.
