  • -Oh, my goodness! -Stop it.
  • 00:00:01.120 --> 00:00:03.010
  • -Is that alive? -Your knowledge of
  • 00:00:03.020 --> 00:00:05.030
  • small pickle names is astounding to me.
  • 00:00:05.040 --> 00:00:07.080
  • -No hands. No biting. -Okay.
  • 00:00:07.090 --> 00:00:08.270
  • Go.
  • 00:00:08.280 --> 00:00:09.280
  • (muffled yelling)
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:15.250
  • Okay, that's good, Landon,
  • 00:00:15.260 --> 00:00:17.180
  • but you're about to lose. Aah!
  • 00:00:17.190 --> 00:00:20.110
  • (Kirk gasping)
  • 00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:23.000
  • I'm Kirk Cameron, and I get to meet
  • 00:00:23.010 --> 00:00:24.210
  • some pretty amazing people.
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:26.180
  • These are people who totally inspire me
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:28.220
  • with their hearts full of faith,
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:31.200
  • character and courage.
  • 00:00:31.210 --> 00:00:33.180
  • They push their limits, they think outside the box
  • 00:00:33.190 --> 00:00:36.000
  • and bravely use their gifts and talents
  • 00:00:36.010 --> 00:00:38.090
  • to bless others.
  • 00:00:38.100 --> 00:00:40.030
  • And today, we get to spend some time...
  • 00:00:40.040 --> 00:00:42.000
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:50.050
  • Did you know half of American pastors--
  • 00:00:52.160 --> 00:00:55.250
  • ministers in churches--
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:57.100
  • are 55 years old or older?
  • 00:00:57.110 --> 00:00:59.260
  • Now, with age usually comes wisdom.
  • 00:00:59.270 --> 00:01:01.280
  • That's actually what I have in my hair.
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:03.150
  • This isn't really gray hair. These are wisdom streaks.
  • 00:01:03.160 --> 00:01:06.090
  • Um, which is great for ministers.
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:08.180
  • We want them to have wisdom.
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:10.180
  • Well, where does that leave the young guys,
  • 00:01:10.190 --> 00:01:12.160
  • the 25-, 30-year-old ministers in the church?
  • 00:01:12.170 --> 00:01:15.190
  • Do they have the wisdom it takes to lead the next generation?
  • 00:01:15.200 --> 00:01:19.180
  • Well, today, I invited
  • 00:01:19.190 --> 00:01:21.130
  • my friend Landon MacDonald over.
  • 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:22.210
  • He's one of these guys.
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:24.050
  • He has so much wisdom.
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:25.290
  • He doesn't have a lot of gray hair,
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:27.200
  • but he's got an awesome beard.
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:29.050
  • He's got a passion for God's Word and the next generation.
  • 00:01:29.060 --> 00:01:32.100
  • So much so that he has created a video walk-through
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:36.120
  • of the entire Bible on YouTube
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:38.170
  • so that he can reach young people outside the four walls
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:41.090
  • of the church building.
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:43.020
  • I invited him to come over to talk about his passion
  • 00:01:43.030 --> 00:01:45.170
  • for God's Word for the next generation,
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:47.160
  • to make some breakfast, and then challenge him
  • 00:01:47.170 --> 00:01:50.030
  • to a one-on-one competition.
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:51.280
  • -Landon! Come here. -Come on. I like it.
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.220
  • -How's it going? -Oh, my gosh.
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:55.010
  • It's going good. How are you doing?
  • 00:01:55.020 --> 00:01:56.180
  • I'm doing great. Good to see you.
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.020
  • -Hey, I like the beard. -Thank you.
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:01:59.230
  • That was a very kind introduction.
  • 00:01:59.240 --> 00:02:01.150
  • -Thank you so much. I like that. -You're... you're welcome.
  • 00:02:01.160 --> 00:02:03.150
  • I thought we could just, like, make breakfast.
  • 00:02:03.160 --> 00:02:05.090
  • -Let's do it. Okay. -All right, what... what are you, uh...
  • 00:02:05.100 --> 00:02:08.000
  • -LANDON: I am useless here. -Are you the cook,
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:09.190
  • -or is your wife the cook? -Oh, gosh, she wouldn't even
  • 00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:11.290
  • let me near any of this stuff, so this will be fun.
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:13.210
  • -Do you know what you're doing? -Okay, here. Why don't you go with the bacon.
  • 00:02:13.220 --> 00:02:15.220
  • -I like it. -Why don't you just start...
  • 00:02:15.230 --> 00:02:17.040
  • -Here, here you go. -Great. Okay.
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:18.230
  • You-you didn't...
  • 00:02:18.240 --> 00:02:20.040
  • You're not vegetarian or anything, are you?
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:21.180
  • Absolutely not, no.
  • 00:02:21.190 --> 00:02:22.260
  • No. No, you're from Chicago, and...
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:24.120
  • Steak is a prerequisite in Chicago.
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:26.030
  • -Okay. -Oh, perfect.
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:28.180
  • -There we go. Okay, good. -I like that.
  • 00:02:28.190 --> 00:02:30.290
  • I like that.
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:32.120
  • All right, let's get some of these on there.
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:34.270
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:37.110
  • LANDON: These look good.
  • 00:02:37.120 --> 00:02:39.000
  • -These are, like... -I'm just gonna put a little...
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:41.090
  • This is, like, some real-deal, like, Lord of the Rings,
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:43.220
  • Hobbit- looking sausage right there.
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:45.120
  • (laughs): Yeah.
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:46.180
  • That's good.
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:47.290
  • -All right. -Perfect.
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:50.250
  • LANDON: I like this.
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:52.090
  • This is fun. Outside?
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:54.140
  • -Isn't this great? -And you're, like...
  • 00:02:54.150 --> 00:02:56.150
  • you're, like, cold right now,
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:58.260
  • 'cause you're the... you are the most California person I know.
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.180
  • Yeah. Well, see, you have... you have the beard,
  • 00:03:01.190 --> 00:03:03.210
  • which is probably necessary in Chicago.
  • 00:03:03.220 --> 00:03:05.140
  • -Yes. -With the cold in the winters, it's brutal.
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:07.220
  • Yeah, this is a utilitarian beard.
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:09.130
  • It's for actual warmth.
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.120
  • My dad took me ice fishing when I was a kid.
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:13.220
  • I dropped... I picked up his coat, and I...
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:17.090
  • the keys fell out of it into the ice fishing hole.
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:20.170
  • -No. -Yeah.
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:22.250
  • We called the guide, and the guide came
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.160
  • and caught the keys,
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:26.220
  • and it was the only thing we caught all day.
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:29.210
  • -Okay, this is looking so good. -Hey. Wait, wait.
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:31.160
  • -I think our bacon is... is just about there. -Okay.
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.280
  • -Oh, man. -Yeah, looks done.
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:35.080
  • Should we roll these, or are these good?
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.280
  • -KIRK: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. -There we go.
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:39.110
  • Oh. (chuckles)
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:40.170
  • -Good. All right. -You ready for these?
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:45.060
  • -That's it. Yeah. -Boom.
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:46.170
  • -Boom. All right, let's turn these off. -Okay.
  • 00:03:46.180 --> 00:03:48.030
  • -Okay. Like it. -All right.
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:50.170
  • -Here, you go for the meat. -Yes.
  • 00:03:50.180 --> 00:03:52.020
  • We can just go right over there.
  • 00:03:52.030 --> 00:03:53.080
  • -And I got the salt and pepper. -Oh, my gosh.
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:55.090
  • KIRK: Okay. What do you think of this, huh?
  • 00:03:55.100 --> 00:03:57.250
  • This is an Instagram-ready table.
  • 00:03:57.260 --> 00:03:59.240
  • -You like that? I... -Yeah.
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:01.050
  • -I don't have my phone with me. -Get the right filter.
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:02.230
  • This is wonderful. Okay, we got to eat. I'm so hungry.
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:04.160
  • -You want some coffee? -Absolutely.
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:06.240
  • Would your generation have thought that this style
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:09.050
  • of coffee is just absolutely crazy?
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:11.200
  • (chuckles): Uh...
  • 00:04:11.210 --> 00:04:13.070
  • The stereotype is that your generation, like,
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:15.080
  • drank coffee from gas stations,
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:16.190
  • and it was terrible and they didn't care.
  • 00:04:16.200 --> 00:04:18.020
  • -Yeah. -And my generation buys $11 cups of coffee.
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:21.100
  • -Yeah. -They're, like, this big, and drinks it with two hands
  • 00:04:21.110 --> 00:04:23.110
  • -while sipping and thinking. -Exactly.
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:25.270
  • -Is that...? -Yeah.
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.200
  • Should I, like, reveal to you
  • 00:04:27.210 --> 00:04:29.130
  • that I'm a Growing Pains superfan,
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:31.000
  • or is, like, the time for you to...
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:32.210
  • is that kind of past?
  • 00:04:32.220 --> 00:04:34.160
  • Do you get sick of talking about stuff like that?
  • 00:04:34.170 --> 00:04:36.050
  • -I love talking about Growing Pains. -Yeah.
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:37.180
  • You know what, it's one of those things in your life
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:39.230
  • that made the difference.
  • 00:04:39.240 --> 00:04:42.000
  • -Sure. -I wouldn't know Chelsea
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:43.210
  • -if it weren't for Growing Pains. -Wow.
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:45.020
  • I wouldn't be doing this show or anything else.
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:47.020
  • -Yeah. -Uh, which means, if I didn't know Chelsea,
  • 00:04:47.030 --> 00:04:48.250
  • I wouldn't have my family, my kids, everything.
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:50.130
  • -Um... -Wow.
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:52.170
  • So Growing Pains was one of those pivotal moments,
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:55.050
  • and-and I love it.
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.050
  • So, Landon, you're-you're...
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:58.050
  • you're one of mine and Chelsea's and our kids'
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:05:00.190
  • favorite people in the whole world.
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:02.060
  • You are one of the most fun human beings on Earth,
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:04.150
  • and we always knew that you would do some...
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:06.150
  • you would do something amazing with your life.
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:08.250
  • You'd be on some kind of wild, crazy adventure.
  • 00:05:08.260 --> 00:05:11.230
  • -(chuckles) -And you love kids.
  • 00:05:11.240 --> 00:05:13.170
  • So, you're kind of focusing in specifically
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:15.190
  • -on student ministry? -Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:17.070
  • -Yep. -Now, what... what made you
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:19.180
  • decide to become a pastor?
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:21.040
  • I mean, you could have done all kinds of crazy things.
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:24.040
  • You're fun, you're-you're smart, you...
  • 00:05:24.050 --> 00:05:27.200
  • -Thank you. -Why-why a pastor?
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.050
  • Man, when God just impacts your life,
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:31.150
  • and when he grips your heart,
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:33.180
  • and you want that to happen to other people,
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:36.090
  • and you want to see that happen, you want to be a part
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:39.030
  • of that happening in whatever way you can.
  • 00:05:39.040 --> 00:05:40.280
  • -What happened when you were a teenager? -Oh, my gosh.
  • 00:05:40.290 --> 00:05:42.290
  • I kind of gave my heart to Christ in layers.
  • 00:05:43.000 --> 00:05:45.100
  • God kept pursuing me.
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:47.010
  • I was... stuck in sin,
  • 00:05:47.020 --> 00:05:48.290
  • I was stuck in selfishness, I was stuck in ignorance,
  • 00:05:49.000 --> 00:05:51.120
  • and every time, God would grab my heart,
  • 00:05:51.130 --> 00:05:53.130
  • and I would give him another layer of my heart.
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:55.200
  • You grow up in church, it's really easy to think
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.160
  • that following Jesus is a list of things to do.
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:59.230
  • Following Jesus isn't a list of things to do.
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:01.220
  • -It's-it's a list of... -What is it?
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:03.080
  • It's a list of people to follow, and it's just one...
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.170
  • one thing long, and if you're... if you're following Jesus,
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:07.230
  • what you find is that you...
  • 00:06:07.240 --> 00:06:09.180
  • you become all of these other things anyway,
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:11.270
  • -Mm. -and-and the list just falls away,
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:13.280
  • and-and it's a really wonderful thing.
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.220
  • What was it about Jesus that made you say,
  • 00:06:15.230 --> 00:06:18.170
  • -"I want to follow Jesus personally"? -Yeah.
  • 00:06:18.180 --> 00:06:21.120
  • It's recognizing and realizing that you messed up,
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:24.190
  • you tripped up, you slipped up, you failed, and...
  • 00:06:24.200 --> 00:06:27.010
  • recognizing what that means
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.150
  • between you and God, and then all of a sudden
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:31.090
  • you realize that God made a way for you to be right.
  • 00:06:31.100 --> 00:06:35.230
  • And when-when that realization happens,
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:38.010
  • -that's the moment. -Mm.
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:40.010
  • And that is the moment that I, uh, am working
  • 00:06:40.020 --> 00:06:42.200
  • for as many people to have as possible,
  • 00:06:42.210 --> 00:06:44.270
  • specifically teenagers.
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:46.170
  • -That is so great. -Yeah.
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:48.220
  • I remember you talking about being in a band
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:50.190
  • -and wanting to be a musician. -Yeah.
  • 00:06:50.200 --> 00:06:52.020
  • Whatev... whatever happened with that?
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:53.160
  • Yeah, I was in band. Uh... (laughs)
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:55.220
  • It was a seven-piece kind of Brit pop, rock thing.
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:58.080
  • It was, uh... There was... Gosh, I played, uh,
  • 00:06:58.090 --> 00:07:00.240
  • auxiliary percussion and drums. I was doing that.
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:03.050
  • I did that my whole teenage years.
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:04.200
  • I was in bands and playing that, and I got to this point
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:07.030
  • where my band actually was flown out here to L.A.,
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:09.260
  • and all of a sudden, um, I had to make this choice
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:12.130
  • whether I was going to be a pastor
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:14.020
  • or I was going to pursue this thing.
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.210
  • And it was really difficult in the moment,
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:17.060
  • but it was a really wonderful experience as I look back on it
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:19.190
  • because that was when God really cemented on my heart,
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:22.290
  • "This is... this is what you should be doing."
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:26.170
  • I think Christians overemphasize a call.
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:28.260
  • Uh, I wasn't called into ministry.
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:31.080
  • It's just what I wanted to do.
  • 00:07:31.090 --> 00:07:33.020
  • And all of a sudden, I realized, like, the freedom in Christ.
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:35.170
  • You can do whatever you want. You can be in a band,
  • 00:07:35.180 --> 00:07:37.290
  • you can be a pastor, but what is gonna bring
  • 00:07:38.000 --> 00:07:40.120
  • the most glory to God?
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:42.150
  • -And that choice... -Mm.
  • 00:07:42.160 --> 00:07:44.170
  • ...and-and seeing the world through that lens
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:46.040
  • is such a freeing experience.
  • 00:07:46.050 --> 00:07:47.270
  • I'm not burdened by trying
  • 00:07:47.280 --> 00:07:49.200
  • to appease God with my right choices.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:51.170
  • I'm not burdened by trying to appease my parents
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:53.180
  • with right choices. What's gonna make
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:55.150
  • the most people look at God and think, "Yeah"?
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:07:58.240
  • That's the lane you take at every decision.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.110
  • And all of a sudden, you're so free to just live your life...
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:03.180
  • -Hmm. -...and live your life with the things
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:05.180
  • that you've been given and the giftings you've been given,
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:07.220
  • and just try to make the most people
  • 00:08:07.230 --> 00:08:09.100
  • look up at God and be like, "Yeah, this is what I want."
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:12.020
  • See, that's what I try to say to my kids, but it doesn't
  • 00:08:12.030 --> 00:08:15.230
  • come out like that. I-I got to get my kids out here,
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.210
  • have 'em sit at your feet for a while.
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:19.040
  • Can you hang out with them around a campfire later tonight?
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:20.210
  • I love your kids. They're awesome.
  • 00:08:20.220 --> 00:08:22.070
  • Yeah, teenagers don't listen to their parents always
  • 00:08:22.080 --> 00:08:24.120
  • for reasons I don't understand.
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.270
  • I say the same things to them, and they're like, "Oh, cool."
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.210
  • -Oh, cool. -And then their parents are off
  • 00:08:27.220 --> 00:08:29.000
  • in the background like, "What is...?"
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:30.070
  • That's what I'm talk...
  • 00:08:30.080 --> 00:08:32.030
  • So, I-I think that teenagers
  • 00:08:32.040 --> 00:08:33.270
  • -have different challenges today... -Yeah.
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:35.270
  • -...than when I was a kid, or even when you were a kid. -Yeah.
  • 00:08:35.280 --> 00:08:38.210
  • What do you find unique about the challenges that-that
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:41.230
  • the kids are facing today?
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:43.130
  • -Yeah. -And helping them to really
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:44.210
  • understand what life is about?
  • 00:08:44.220 --> 00:08:46.050
  • The Internet and the phones and all of that stuff presents
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:49.200
  • unbelievable challenges to these people.
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:51.180
  • -And the amount of time... -Agreed.
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:54.070
  • ...and the awareness that you have
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:55.190
  • of what other people are doing,
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.020
  • what other people are experiencing-- it becomes
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:09:00.110
  • part of this, like, universal performance of:
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:03.080
  • How many people can I get to look at me?
  • 00:09:03.090 --> 00:09:05.170
  • -How many people can I get to give me a thumbs-up? -Yeah.
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:08.140
  • And living your life on that is really a...
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:10.150
  • It's a religion. It's a religion of trying
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:13.040
  • to get followers for yourself and trying to get people
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:15.150
  • to say, "You're wonderful.
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:16.280
  • You're great. We appreciate you."
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:18.170
  • And the crazy thing about Jesus is you realize
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.200
  • that he's willing to give you all of those things
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:23.090
  • -in a much fuller way... -Mm.
  • 00:09:23.100 --> 00:09:24.210
  • ...than you could experience on your own anyway.
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:26.250
  • And it's such a futile pursuit. I feel so terrible.
  • 00:09:26.260 --> 00:09:28.280
  • -And in such a real way. -Yeah.
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:30.090
  • -If I could jump in there, because... -Please.
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:31.250
  • -...Jesus knows who you really are. -Amen.
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:33.130
  • Your followers know who your Instagram profile is.
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:35.090
  • -Absolutely. -But they don't know
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.200
  • what's really going on inside--
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:37.280
  • your hopes, your dreams, your fears, your struggles.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.120
  • -Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. -But-but God does.
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:40.270
  • Yo
  • 00:09:43.060 --> 00:09:43.070
  • You'

  • You've spent so much time with... with the youth.
  • 00:09:44.010 --> 00:09:44.220
  • -Yeah. -What do you think
  • 00:09:44.230 --> 00:09:46.270
  • would be really helpful for parents to know?
  • 00:09:46.280 --> 00:09:50.010
  • That, although the situations
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:51.180
  • that they're growing up in are different,
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:53.170
  • all of the core desires that they have are the exact same
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:56.070
  • -as the parents have. -Yeah.
  • 00:09:56.080 --> 00:09:57.180
  • So all of the core desires that people have...
  • 00:09:57.190 --> 00:10:00.120
  • I want to be known, I want to be accepted,
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:03.290
  • -and I want to be loved. -Mm.
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:05.190
  • And all of the stuff that surrounds that is kind of
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:07.200
  • the thing that gets all the headlines,
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:09.050
  • but at the core of it, all people are the same, really.
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:11.180
  • And all people want those same things.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:13.080
  • And I think figuring out how to appeal to those things
  • 00:10:13.090 --> 00:10:15.290
  • with your teenagers is really a great way to parent them.
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:18.180
  • I want to be known. I want to be...
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:20.210
  • -Accepted. -Accepted.
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:22.040
  • -Yeah. Yeah. -That's a big one.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:23.200
  • -And, uh, I want to be loved. -Absolutely.
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:26.070
  • -I think parents can-- if I could say it-- -(sighs)
  • 00:10:26.080 --> 00:10:28.020
  • they tend to focus on the fruit instead of the root.
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:30.230
  • They tend to focus on the behaviors of their child
  • 00:10:30.240 --> 00:10:33.250
  • -instead of their beliefs of their child. -Yeah.
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:36.040
  • And, yeah. I mean, easy for me to say.
  • 00:10:36.050 --> 00:10:37.250
  • I don't have teenagers, but I work with them, so...
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:40.110
  • -Yeah. (laughs) -Yeah. (laughs)
  • 00:10:40.120 --> 00:10:42.080
  • Just wait.
  • 00:10:42.090 --> 00:10:44.110
  • -Yeah. I know. I'm... -(laughs)
  • 00:10:44.120 --> 00:10:46.120
  • I'm like, "Oh, my gosh,
  • 00:10:46.130 --> 00:10:47.240
  • I'm gonna be such a great dad to teenagers."
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:49.150
  • Then my son is just gonna be 14.
  • 00:10:49.160 --> 00:10:51.020
  • I'm gonna be crying and calling you on the phone.
  • 00:10:51.030 --> 00:10:54.060
  • You know what happened to me?
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:55.290
  • -I'm on this show called Growing Pains. -Yeah.
  • 00:10:56.000 --> 00:10:58.070
  • -I grow up, get married, have six kids. -Yeah.
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:11:01.120
  • And I find myself raising a little Mike Seaver.
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:03.200
  • -Oh. -It's like the whole thing's coming back to me.
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:05.200
  • -I love that. (laughs) -Yeah.
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:07.190
  • Landon, you created this whole video walk-through of the Bible.
  • 00:11:07.200 --> 00:11:11.010
  • Like, through the entire Bible,
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.210
  • and-and each book of the Bible in, like, seven minutes,
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:15.230
  • -eight minutes. -It's so fun.
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:17.040
  • The word "Bible" in its original language means "book."
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:19.280
  • It's way better than The Lord of the Rings
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:21.140
  • and Twilight and Harry Potter combined.
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:23.160
  • He made man in his own image.
  • 00:11:23.170 --> 00:11:25.240
  • He put the man and woman in charge of
  • 00:11:25.250 --> 00:11:27.140
  • everything in the material world.
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:28.140
  • Teenagers are cement,
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:29.250
  • and when they're 11, it's really wet,
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:31.170
  • and when they're 18, it's really dry,
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:33.170
  • and you got this little window here.
  • 00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:34.270
  • I've been working with teenagers, and I was really
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:36.270
  • dissatisfied with the, uh, biblical literacy
  • 00:11:36.280 --> 00:11:38.070
  • of the teenagers in our own church.
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:39.250
  • I just felt like, this is my job,
  • 00:11:39.260 --> 00:11:41.250
  • and we're not even doing a good job.
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:43.080
  • They don't know all the stories of the Bible, they don't know
  • 00:11:43.090 --> 00:11:44.210
  • all the covenants of the Bible, they don't know
  • 00:11:44.220 --> 00:11:46.110
  • all the movements of the Bible, they don't know all
  • 00:11:46.120 --> 00:11:47.220
  • the narratives of the Bible, and I was like, "My gosh."
  • 00:11:47.230 --> 00:11:49.040
  • So we sat down to make this curriculum,
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:51.140
  • and it's really just been a thing
  • 00:11:51.150 --> 00:11:53.000
  • that people have really responded to,
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:54.190
  • and I've really enjoyed doing it.
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:56.190
  • And the whole point is what Paul says in Colossians 1.
  • 00:11:56.200 --> 00:11:58.290
  • He says, uh, "I want to make the Word fully known."
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:02.170
  • And I think that that's the job of every Christian.
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:05.220
  • That's my job, and I just...
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:07.180
  • Gosh, I-I just...
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:09.020
  • The Bible's on every shelf, it's in all these hotels,
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:11.250
  • it's on people's phones, and people don't know what it says.
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:15.060
  • Never has there been a piece of art
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:17.260
  • that more people owned and possessed
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:19.120
  • and fewer people knew.
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:21.030
  • -It's-it's crazy. -Mm.
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:22.260
  • Uh, there's nothing like that in the history of the world.
  • 00:12:22.270 --> 00:12:25.000
  • It's the greatest piece of art that the world has ever had
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:28.200
  • and the piece of art that the least amount of people
  • 00:12:28.210 --> 00:12:31.020
  • can accurately assess even what the content is,
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:33.280
  • -let alone what the message is. -Wow.
  • 00:12:33.290 --> 00:12:36.110
  • The Bible is like a hungry lion.
  • 00:12:36.120 --> 00:12:37.250
  • You just got to tell people what it says,
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:39.290
  • and it's gonna take care of itself.
  • 00:12:40.000 --> 00:12:41.190
  • It doesn't need a ton of adornment.
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:43.190
  • It doesn't need a ton of creativity.
  • 00:12:43.200 --> 00:12:45.280
  • It doesn't really need a ton of anything.
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:47.060
  • Just figure out what it says and tell people,
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:48.260
  • and it's gonna impact them every time.
  • 00:12:48.270 --> 00:12:51.000
  • It makes me think of what the prophet Jeremiah said.
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:53.050
  • He said, "'Is not your word like fire?' declares the Lord."
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:57.030
  • And then he says, "'And isn't your word
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:59.260
  • like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?'"
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:03.140
  • And that's the power of the Bible.
  • 00:13:03.150 --> 00:13:05.040
  • It warms cold hearts like fire,
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:07.240
  • and it smashes hard hearts like a hammer.
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:12.030
  • -Hmm. -And watching that happen
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:14.240
  • is the greatest thing in the world.
  • 00:13:14.250 --> 00:13:16.090
  • Yeah.
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:17.120
  • I hear you. I-I hear you.
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:18.290
  • And-and what I love about what you do
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:20.250
  • is you take, uh, something that can seem, um...
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:24.060
  • so overwhelming to people,
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:26.010
  • -and you break it down into these really fun to... -Sure.
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:28.250
  • -I mean, you do the Book of Job in eight minutes. -(laughs)
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:31.050
  • It-it's awesome. I love the way that you do that.
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:33.180
  • LANDON: Job answering this question:
  • 00:13:33.190 --> 00:13:35.120
  • Why do bad things happen?
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:37.080
  • Job was great because he loved God.
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:39.030
  • Job was close to God all the time.
  • 00:13:39.040 --> 00:13:40.260
  • What happens when that is tested?
  • 00:13:40.270 --> 00:13:43.010
  • God comes in a whirlwind and speaks for several chapters.
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:45.200
  • Can you defeat a behemoth?
  • 00:13:45.210 --> 00:13:46.270
  • It's probably a dinosaur. No.
  • 00:13:46.280 --> 00:13:48.150
  • Can you fish out leviathan with a hook?
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.200
  • It's probably an extinct sea serpent. No.
  • 00:13:50.210 --> 00:13:53.080
  • In His own gracious way, God blesses Job.
  • 00:13:53.090 --> 00:13:56.010
  • Animals, children and life.
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.230
  • Job lived to be 140 years old full of awesome days with God.
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:14:01.250
  • That was a tough one, yeah. And as I've been doing it,
  • 00:14:01.260 --> 00:14:04.160
  • I'm like, "Gosh, I don't even know everything
  • 00:14:04.170 --> 00:14:06.090
  • that's in here yet." Job was... Job was a fun one.
  • 00:14:06.100 --> 00:14:08.050
  • I loved that.
  • 00:14:08.060 --> 00:14:09.090
  • If you could go back and talk to yourself
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:13.010
  • -when you were in youth group... -Yeah.
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:15.160
  • -Yeah. -You go back and talk
  • 00:14:15.170 --> 00:14:17.000
  • -to the 14-year-old version of yourself now... -Yeah.
  • 00:14:17.010 --> 00:14:21.090
  • Wh-What do you... What would you say to yourself?
  • 00:14:21.100 --> 00:14:23.270
  • That all the promises of God are absolutely truer
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:26.040
  • than you can possibly imagine.
  • 00:14:26.050 --> 00:14:27.180
  • And that every day and every minute that you spend
  • 00:14:27.190 --> 00:14:30.150
  • living like they're not true, you end up regretting.
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:32.250
  • And you end up...
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:35.050
  • sick and sore and hurt and in pain.
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:38.150
  • And every moment that you spend
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:41.030
  • truly believing that all the promises of God
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:42.280
  • are as true as God says they are
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.210
  • are the moments that are treasured and lasting
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:46.160
  • in becoming the type of person that you want to become.
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:49.240
  • I wish I could tell myself that.
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:51.190
  • Took a minute to get it all figured out, but...
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:54.020
  • -Yeah. -Yeah.
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:14:55.190
  • But you know what? You are telling
  • 00:14:55.200 --> 00:14:57.070
  • thousands and tens of thousands
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:15:00.060
  • and-and soon millions of young people
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:02.160
  • that exact message
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:04.160
  • -through the videos that you're making. -Absolutely. Absolutely.
  • 00:15:04.170 --> 00:15:06.230
  • I'm so proud of you.
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:08.160
  • -Oh, thank you. -I'm so thankful for you.
  • 00:15:08.170 --> 00:15:10.040
  • -(chuckles) -All right, have you had enough to eat?
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.230
  • -I have, yeah. -You have?
  • 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:13.080
  • I did set up a little activity for us.
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:15.200
  • -I challenge you... -Oh, no.
  • 00:15:15.210 --> 00:15:17.200
  • I double-dog dare you to enter
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:20.070
  • into a one-on-one competition with me
  • 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:22.120
  • -youth group style. -Okay.
  • 00:15:22.130 --> 00:15:24.050
  • -You up for it? -I have...
  • 00:15:24.060 --> 00:15:26.020
  • I'm sure the people watching this won't believe this,
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.290
  • but I have no idea what's gonna happen.
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:30.000
  • -He really doesn't. No, you don't. Absolutely. -And-and I'm up for it.
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:31.280
  • -I'm up for it. Let's do it. -All right. All right.
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:33.170
  • Let's go. Follow me.
  • 00:15:33.180 --> 00:15:34.230
  • Let's go this way.
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:36.240
  • Old MacDonald's gonna lose.
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:40.240
  • Ooh. Okay.
  • 00:15:40.250 --> 00:15:42.070
  • -I'm telling you, you're going down, Landon. -I...
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:43.270
  • I've led a lot of games in my time,
  • 00:15:43.280 --> 00:15:45.260
  • but I always know what's happening, so...
  • 00:15:45.270 --> 00:15:47.260
  • So, this... so, this is the one-on-one competition.
  • 00:15:47.270 --> 00:15:49.150
  • This is youth group style. We-we've put together
  • 00:15:49.160 --> 00:15:52.100
  • -a whole series of youth group games. -So good.
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:54.230
  • This is, like, a secret box,
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.220
  • -and you... and you can't see in, right? -Yeah.
  • 00:15:56.230 --> 00:15:58.190
  • There's no way to see in, but there's holes in the back.
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:01.190
  • -You put your hands in. -Yeah.
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:03.060
  • KIRK: The other person is going to open up a bag
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:05.050
  • -full of items and put the items inside the box. -Okay.
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:08.020
  • And you have to-to figure out
  • 00:16:08.030 --> 00:16:10.020
  • what they are without seeing them.
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:11.200
  • -You guess first. -Okay.
  • 00:16:11.210 --> 00:16:13.090
  • All right, here we go. Hands in.
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:15.140
  • -Hands in. -Ooh!
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:17.120
  • Those aren't, like, X-ray glasses, you can see
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:19.000
  • -through the bin, are they? -No.
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:20.070
  • Oh, my goodness!
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:22.060
  • -Stop it. -Is that alive?
  • 00:16:22.070 --> 00:16:24.040
  • Stop with your acting skills, please. (chuckles)
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:26.250
  • Oh, I don't even want to touch that.
  • 00:16:26.260 --> 00:16:28.210
  • -Proceed. -Okay.
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:31.120
  • That is the nastiest thing I have ever seen.
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:34.060
  • LANDON: So, that's got to be...
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:36.210
  • It's, like... it's, like, a plant type thing.
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:38.160
  • -Is that a cauliflower? -(bell dings)
  • 00:16:38.170 --> 00:16:39.260
  • -You are correct. -(laughs): Yeah!
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:42.200
  • -You are correct. -One for one.
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:44.060
  • Whoa! Okay. All right. There.
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.010
  • There. Go ahead.
  • 00:16:48.020 --> 00:16:49.210
  • There. Oh!
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:51.060
  • Kirk, I think that that is a plush novelty mouse.
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:56.100
  • -(bell dings) -Yes!
  • 00:16:56.110 --> 00:16:57.110
  • -Let's go! -(laughs)
  • 00:16:57.120 --> 00:16:58.190
  • -Two for two. Come on. -Two for two. Two for two.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:01.040
  • Okay.
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:04.130
  • LANDON: Okay, um... circular.
  • 00:17:04.140 --> 00:17:08.030
  • Feels like a really, really terrible airplane pillow,
  • 00:17:08.040 --> 00:17:10.210
  • but what is it actually?
  • 00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:12.030
  • -Is it a toilet seat? -(bell dings)
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:13.260
  • -Yes! A toilet seat. -Yes.
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:15.150
  • Ooh, that was really gross.
  • 00:17:15.160 --> 00:17:17.000
  • That's, like, a baby toilet seat, too.
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:18.180
  • I was just definitely feeling all over that.
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:20.210
  • Hands in, my friend.
  • 00:17:20.220 --> 00:17:22.120
  • -(clears throat) Let me use your glasses. -Oh, man.
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:24.220
  • You can if you want. Just to prove that they're not anything.
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.010
  • -Those are gonna look good on you. -(chuckles): Oh!
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:28.200
  • I can so see right through this now.
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:30.090
  • -Now I know your secret. -Those look good on you.
  • 00:17:30.100 --> 00:17:32.180
  • Okay, here's item number one. Go ahead.
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:34.170
  • -Item number one? -Yep.
  • 00:17:34.180 --> 00:17:36.270
  • Okay. Clearly, this is a Chicago Cubs baseball hat.
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:40.250
  • -It is a hat. You are correct. -(bell dings)
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:42.260
  • Seems like there's some glitter on it. Well done.
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:44.250
  • Ready? Number two.
  • 00:17:44.260 --> 00:17:46.230
  • Okay, this is so... this is... this is...
  • 00:17:46.240 --> 00:17:48.170
  • I know it's gonna get harder now.
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:50.020
  • Oh! This is... It could be a cucumber,
  • 00:17:50.030 --> 00:17:52.270
  • but I'm gonna go with
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:54.060
  • -a gherkin, a small pickle. -(bell dings)
  • 00:17:54.070 --> 00:17:56.210
  • -Unfortunately... -What...?
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:58.090
  • -...for me, you are correct. -(laughs): Oh, yes!
  • 00:17:58.100 --> 00:18:00.270
  • Your knowledge of small pickle names is astounding to me.
  • 00:18:00.280 --> 00:18:04.000
  • You've pulled three out of the air.
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:05.200
  • -What's a gherkin? Like... -That's a small pickle.
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:09.030
  • This last one, I-I think I saved the hardest one for last.
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:11.160
  • -Great. Perfect. -'Cause I think that that's fair.
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:13.060
  • Good luck, my friend.
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:15.010
  • KIRK: Okay. It's not hard like brittle.
  • 00:18:15.020 --> 00:18:17.030
  • It's-it's very firm, but it... but...
