Glenn's niece recently sent him a passage from Ephesians 4, and it hit differently this time: "You must no longer live as the Gentiles do in the futility of their thinking because they are darkened in their understanding, and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to the hardening of their hearts." How true that is today, Glenn says. But thankfully, Ephesians also gives the solution...
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: So my -- my niece sent me a Scripture this morning. And I read it.
And I saw it with new eyes. And it relates directly to today. I -- I've read this a million times.
But I don't know. Maybe -- maybe you will find how right in today, this is.
So I tell you this, I insist on it, in the Lord. That you must no longer live as the Gentiles do. In other words, you're people that respect God.
Stop living the way everybody else is living. In the futility of their thinking. Because they are darkened in their understanding. And separated, from the life of God.
Isn't that the problem we're experiencing right now? People -- it's like they're -- they just -- they don't have any understanding, and the understanding they have, is pretty dark.
Because of the ignorance, that is in them, due to the hardening of their hearts. So the ignorance, how true this is today. The ignorance is happening, because they've hardened their heart. They're not willing to listen to reason. They're not willing to listen to another side.
And so, thus, they're ignorant. Because they won't listen. They won't check and verify.
Listen to this. Having lost all sensitivity, just think of that up. Having lost all sensitivity. Isn't that the problem with today's world?
We don't -- we're not sensitive to stuff anymore. We're not shocked by things are anymore. I don't know. I am still, every day. I sit in this chair, 5 o'clock in the morning. And I am shocked by the stuff that I'm reading in the morning. But is the average person?
Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensibility, so as to indulge in every kind of impurity.
So they're not sensitive anymore. Because they've hardened their hearts. And they're ignorant.
And so what have they done?
They've given themselves over to anything. Any kind of impurity, that will make them feel good.
All the things of the flesh.
Did you -- did you read the story?
Who was it? The attorney -- I better not say. It's -- one of the state actors, in one of our 50 states, that was saying, you know drag queens just make us feel good. And that's why I want to have you know drag queens for schools. Because you just feel good.
Wow. So they indulge in every kind of impurity. And they are full of greed. Isn't that what ESG is all about?
Isn't that what -- isn't that the reason why you run somebody like Fetterman?
Or Joe Biden, who are not capable of doing the job. But it's greed. ESG, it's greed.
It goes on. That, however, is not the way of life, that you learned. When you heard about Christ, you were taught with him, in accordance with the truth that was in him. You were taught that regard to the former way of life, the way we used to be, your old self, to put it off.
Because that was corrupted by deceitful desires. And you were to be made new, and have a new attitude of your mind. And put on that new self. Created to be like God. In righteousness.
Then he goes on, and says this: Therefore, each of you must put off falsehood, and speak truthfully.
Do you know how much we would gain, tomorrow, if every single one of us would put off any falsehood. Sorry.
That's not true. Sorry, I know I said this yesterday. Or I went along with that. But it's not true.
And we got rid of everything. That was not true.
It says, put off falsehood, and speak truthfully, to your neighbor.
For we all are members of one body.
So in your anger, do not sin. Oh. Listen to this one. Don't let the sun go down, while you're still angry. Oh, boy.
Well, it says, don't let the sun go down when you're angry. It doesn't say 5,467 suns that have set in anger. Do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing, steal no longer. Listen to this. But work, work. Doing something useful with your own hands.
It gives you a reason why to work. So you may have something to share with those in need. Don't let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth. Oh, boy.
But only what is helpful for building others up, according to their needs. That's why I'm not telling you right now, something else bad that's happening today. So that your words may benefit those who listen.
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you are sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, get rid of all rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other just as God has forgiven you.
I don't know about you, but that is -- this is why they always say, you know the Bible is alive. Because you read it, and there are times -- I've read that a million times.
But I've never seen the world, the same way. I've never seen this in practice, and the need, for the new self, as much today.
By the way, you can find that, in Ephesians 4:17 to 32. Give me an amen.
