In this episode you will hear:
- In the U.S., we are unbelievable consumers of prostitution, and what comes with that is minors.
- You’re on deployment every time you walk out of the house.
- One in four women is sexually assaulted or sexually abused.
- The sex trafficking crime is so open. It’s openly advertised.
- There are people that think we should defund the police. I think more reasonable people think we should reallocate funds and figure out ways to do this better. There are people out there who can augment what law enforcement is lacking.
- The [funding] money is gonna go where the people demand it.
- [Our organization], All Things Possible does everything from simple counseling to freeing sex slaves.
- Find strength in simply being alive.
- What comes off of your tongue – what you speak – is what you become.
- The term “Yahweh” is the sound of breathing.
- The mere fact that we, as humans, are breathing, we’re saying the name of our Creator every time we breathe.
- What is God’s name? The thing that gives breath to everything that lives.
- The first thing a baby says is that breath of life.
- One family, who lost their son on the battlefield, found relief in the fact that the last breath their son took was the name of our creator.
- Find strength, find solace, and find peace, in that simple act of breathing. If you’re alive, you’re saying God’s name, and He’s there to help to you.
