  2. (0:02:00) Late start, mic problem! 
  3. (0:02:43) JLP: All for the thrill of it! Loving your hell Business, gossip, joining forces. Positive and negative thrills are evil. Afraid to stand alone, without identity. In order to live, you must die: Thrills, ideals… The road to heaven is through hell. Overcome anger, or you’ll join forces with the murderer… Mothers build an army of murderers! … Stop loving emotions. Feel-good emotions are not good. Christ said: Overcome the world with good. Go anywhere, and the world can’t touch you. But with ego and identifying with feelings, you’ll be hurt. 
    • (0:10:00) In relationships: They get a thrill from you overreacting. 
    • (0:11:30) Radio show call: How can I get my girlfriend to go and forgive? Are you praying? No. People get a thrill with repeating “the truth” to others, pouncing… Let go of thrills. 
    • (0:14:00) Hake reads (off-mic) Romans 12: 21 — Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    • (0:19:13) Man: Crushing evil into submission… knock out robber… Others talk
  5. (0:21:29) JLP: Overcome evil with good: Overcome thoughts… When you believe them, you feel a certain way. Do the Silent Prayer, watch thoughts, stay present… You think it’s life, but it’s just a thrill 
    • (0:23:30) (JLP: Don’t cut the baby in half!) — Another thrill! Sympathy. Fighting. Pure hell. Every human being must be born again. Stop believing thoughts. Go to bed in thoughts, wake up in a nightmare… 
    • (0:26:54) JLP: You are your world. Up to you to decide how you’ll live: With thrills, or free, with perfect peace. 
    • (0:29:36) Weakening the dog! Putting clothes on the dog! 
    • (0:32:45) Hang out, don’t call it friends. Putting a title on it: Ownership! Let go of titles. 
  6. (0:34:01) FEEDBACK: Man asks: Title on America as a “Christian nation” — is that why we’re having problems overseas? 
  7. (0:35:30) JLP: God’s love… Not your parents’ fault you’re not overcoming. Live a free life. Compete for the fun of it, without competing. 
    • (0:37:43) (JLP: Overcome thoughts, which are about time. God is about now.) … Most people are afraid of evil. Or else there would be no reaction to it.

    • (0:43:39) A man asks about identifying as Christian vs being Christian. JLP: Those who call themselves Christian are looking for a thrill. Let identities go. You’d say it with a different meaning, no feeling. 
      • (0:46:00) (JLP: When I first became a Christian, I felt like Jesus…) Doing the Silent Prayer? 5 mins, fearful of the future, thinking about the past, thinking he did/did not get something out of the prayer… He mentions a friend getting mad when he told him about dogs and owners’ ego or something… 
    • (0:50:49) African Amsterdam lady says you feel like you’re doing wrong, then protect yourself with excuses, victimhood, afraid to hear truth…
    • (0:53:01) Man talks about peace, love
  8. (0:55:00) … When you go back into thoughts, you go back into hell… 
    • (0:56:26) Man says people who love dogs over people are the worst… JLP says you can’t compare evil 
  9. (0:59:30) (JLP: Be grateful now.) 
    • (1:00:16) Man asks about liking dogs (he has two that hunt); If politics don’t matter, why vote? JLP: The purpose of politics… 
    • (1:03:14) Sean: Gambling addicts have the highest suicide rate of all addicts. 
    • (1:04:02) Young lady talks about food thrills… JLP: You’re in a cave, Satan has you trying… The answers are in the not thinking… The world has made us become thinkers… 
    • (1:05:26) (JLP: These women are buying big butts!) Kim K made them, they look dumb. Ladies, you have a natural body, given you by God… You’re setting yourself up. Appreciate yourself! They’re making money off y’all!

    • (1:11:08) JLP: I love fellowship, not thrill-seeking
    • (1:11:33) Man likes what JLP said about thoughts; every atrocity was by an emotion you yourself has…

    • (1:13:55) Man used to like thrills a lot, but noticed if you let go of expectations, you can just enjoy it as it comes, rather than be disappointed. It’s his first time… 
    • (1:15:41) Young lady: I guess I am a thrill seeker… In a way, I knew… No, I don’t like it.. I know it’s not good, but can’t help myself. 
    • (1:16:41) Young lady, 20: How do you go through life knowing your generation is all into identity? They don’t know who they are… Everyone is on eggshells, and particular on how they want to be called (identities)… JLP: Be a living example
    • (1:21:27) Man’s eyes have been opened a lot. He was subconsciously aware of his thrill-seeking. His mom called him worried in a panic — for the thrill of it. 
    • (1:23:15) (JLP: A thrill is death, not life)
  11. (1:23:32) Biblical Question: What is your state of mind? Donyale: awareness. She watches reality shows with her husband — used to judge people, but now sees herself in them. 
    • (1:25:26) Man is present-minded, taking it in… 
    • (1:25:55) Young mother: Aware when I can be, blind when not. I am a thrill seeker; I like to buy stuff… She doesn’t get angry with her husband anymore. I’m not fighting with that Devil. He’ll complain about his work.

    • (1:31:15) Lady would’ve said before she’s not a thrill seeker, but after today yes 1000%; she tries to be the hero for people who don’t speak up for themselves, the hero she’s always wanted. 
  13. (1:32:18) JLP: If you have anger, you’re a thrill-seeker. Admit to yourself. Be honest with yourself. 
    • (1:34:08) Man buys stuff he doesn’t need. Two dogs, want ‘em?
