Welcome to the Christian Car Guy radio show. The cop show dedicated to helping Christians buy and sell cars by the book the blue book knobby orange book, but by God's book, the Bible called the Christie car guy with your questions.

186634218663487884 is being a Christian have to do with buying a car you're about to find out is your host Ronnie Gilmore when is it time to call dad.

You know the old saying dad's garage open 24 hours.

Well, when in your life. Did your first call.

Go to dad.

We want to hear from you today on the show. It's our listeners that make the show. 866 is number call 866-34-TRUTH 87884 or for the visually gifted 86634 truth really would love to hear your story. Maybe you got a flat tire. Your oil light was flashing you were stuck in the snow. Who did you call on first and how did they come through your story could encourage lots of folks this morning so call us with ears. 866-34-TRUTH 87884 to get us kicked off this morning. We have some missionaries from Africa actually with a very unique story speak how your kids call dad when dad is in Africa and there's a six hour time difference.

We have Mike Van Brogan with us.

Mike tell us your story have limited time your kids call dad I Robbie yeah we serve in transport Africa and there's like a six hour time difference then one morning in Africa. I just woke up. It can't really early time in the morning and I just checked my phone and my son was down there texting me from somewhere between Michigan and West Virginia, where he goes to college he was coming back after school break. And while he was driving the car just started acting up. He had some kind of an electrical issue in the headlights would go off and then they would come back on lights would go off and it would come back on in the car just not running right next to strange and so I saw the text. He was technically saying please be there. Please be there. Don't know what to do when I saw the text I started texting back and on being in Africa. I really couldn't do anything for him other than trying to comfort him and pray about the situation and so in an texting fashion. We did pray about the situation and he calmed down quite a bit. The car rested for a little while and I just told him you'll start the car back up doing now and he started the car back up and the end was fine and his lights were on and everything was acting okay so the he got back on the road and went the rest of the way to the college but that was quite a turmoil for him. You know what that's being so far away and then the time difference just thankful that you know that I woke up there.

I don't think that I just woke up.

I think I've woke me up. Then cut me open my text, but I really tradition incredible or how encouraging was that for you Mike.

Your sons first. Even though you're in Africa. He still had that you call my dad be there be there at exactly.

I think that's a you know that's the big key to the whole situation so but there was another incident and we want to we want to hear about that another time when that same son and this time her sister was living there going back to college from Michigan to West Virginia. This actually happened after the Christmas break.

This last year so it was January early January. Sometimes they were going to drive back to West Virginia and they were caring a couple other students with them to share the gas cost of different things like that and right where they were in Michigan and the roads were okay, everybody knew there was Thomas born around but the roads seemed okay and the regular driving conference in Africa. This was about 10 or 11 o'clock at night when they were to leave and so they took off and then they got all of us through texting again. You know that while mom and dad. These roads really bad. We don't know we should go on. Or should stop somewhere. So my wife was able to get online in Africa, unchecked all the weather reports, check the radar website. The different weather service reports and things in we are able to coach them through the guy looking for the roads that were in better shape. I looking for the areas in the counties that were not close down having a drive through the and that we were up till maybe four in the morning helping them do that but were able to using the Internet in South Africa and text messaging back and forth through our phones were able to help them through the snowstorm had to get them back to the college on time.

I think they were actually only about an hour late when I got there so so miraculous. Just think how our heavenly father. He has way better technology than that he does sometimes we reach out and and he gives us the exact coordinates office Internet, however, that works in and that is such a wonderful story and I'm so glad you have that relationship you know is difficult being a missionary to go to Africa leisure kids in the United States and yet when they need to they can still text you yeah we're very thankful for modern technology. The old dry missionaries that left and went six months on a boat, then maybe sent the letter back every so many years. Those those were true pioneer missionaries and what we do is just not as the same as is difficult is that to me, but we are very thankful for the modern technology that they have some: God bless you and appreciate you calling. Bless your ministry there and you have spurred and yes thank you very much, we think, what you doing. We appreciate it a blessed all right what might be your story. We would love to hear how that played out in your life when you call dad or maybe you were the dad that got the call. Or maybe you called on your heavenly father.

He came through. We'd love to hear your story.

866-34-TRUTH 87884. Especially I guess if you if you called on the heavenly father.

He came through Davie accordance through the snowstorm. Or maybe your check engine light was flashing.

Whatever the situation may be, we would love to hear from you. It's those stories that really encourage everybody on how God comes through force, 866-348-7884. Then at the end of the show in our appraisal by the real black book. That's where we search the Bible for hidden treasure crowd for the sermon, lift up your voice for understanding well in March 2009, I was extremely busy doing interviews are publicist and asked me if I could come up with a plan that would save General Motors and over again. When he asked me bad that's it seem like crazy really want me.

Robbie don't want to come up with a plan to save General Motors, don't you realize that my own dealership went out of business and I now Juergen asked me to come up with a plan to save General Motors well I did what I'm talking about in the show today. I called dad. I started praying and after a while God gave me a plan and it made perfect sense from the Christian card. I point of view and I wrote it down and a little bit later Fox and friends saw that and they got what are publicist tonight. They got me on a New York that same month, which would imply that interview a little bit later in the show, but the very morning that Rick Wagoner resigned from General Motors. Pres. Obama had a press conference scheduled that morning and are publicist and schedule interview for me right after that news conference on what I was told was a liberal news talk radio station in Chicago which you may know is where personal bombs from with what I was told a very liberal talk show lady host and allow for him to realize this, but I'm always nervous to talk on the radio, but even more so when I do phone interviews like a missionary just did.

That's really hard to do.

It's like it's really hard for you to call in, but it's so worth it when you call in today. By the way 866-34-TRUTH 87884. But in this particular situation of time and I felt like I was in hospital territory, and I was on hold forever because they wouldn't cut in until the present. Obama had finished his news conference then first up was going to be me and I was terrified. So I started praying and praying, God give me words that would make a difference because I felt like I was hostile territory have no idea and that prayer, he answered in such a way, I was amazed then and I still am today and we will hear how God came through for me in the show and our appraisal by the real black book.

When is it time to call dad. That's were talking about today. Dad's garage open 24 hours. When did you get that call. Maybe as a dad or when did you call your dad or maybe you called on the heavenly father.

We'd love to hear from you.

This is a live show. So we got lots lines open and it's just me today from so we gotta get some calls 866-34-TRUTH 87884 the Christian card I show is bringing the kingdom of God through an automotive platform and of course our website.

Christian car there you're going to find. Actually the article I wrote on how she could be safety from bankruptcy as well as the interview on Fox and friends you can see the TV version of it were to play the audio little bit later but there. The website also is our Jesus labor of love free car repair for single moms widows families in crisis rent talk a bit more about that Karen Mulder's listener wounded. Maybe, not all the podcasts and stuff are there Christian car

We got so much, it will be the same. Unless you call with your dad story, 866-348-7884 will take your call right now I'm hearing here with today's caregiving wisdom recently during the creeds to reduce card to you received it seven years ago to treasure these years. When the day is really wrath tears formed in her eyes. She asked to read the cards message suffering we can think of no direct current life gets busy and we procrastinate card from you just may become someone caregiving with your listening to the truth and I recently came across 10 steps for getting rid of the blue on those days when things don't go right step number one is to do something nice for another person steps two through 10 are to repeat step one, nine more times for nine more people.

What happens when we do things for others is that it changes our focus. We take our eyes off of ourselves and our discouragement and put them on the person Bible exhorts us to consider others means more important we help others help ourselves. This is David Jeremiah get on the discover God's reasons Route 66, driving over log onto Route 66 start your journey home today the world is full of sin sin that destroys lives and souls that moves you to help other people with their faith. That's a good thing. But the love you feel for all the people who haven't surveyed their lives to Christ can create a temptation to help them overcome all their sins before they've had a personal encounter with Jesus. It's an easy mistake to make. Who wants to see someone they care about the weight of sin trying to fix Jesus, you could never choose someone from sin without Jesus, the Bible says, for it is by grace you have been saved through faith and this doesn't come from you is the gift of God somewhat out of sin introduce them to Jesus. Billy to find yourself in that situation.

Maybe as a listener just texted me actually said that wireless prayer is the best connection prayer is that wireless the best connection you got when maybe you throughout that prayer in the crisis that God came through for you. We would love to hear whichever father helped you out of that struggle. We want to hear from you. 866348788486634 truth and again as we mentioned it. Christian car you're gonna find out all about this got a wonderful picture of dad's garage and all the people Conan but this show would be so much better if you would be, you know, maybe he came through you lost control your car. Maybe he came through because you had a flat tire and he raced up there in the rain. Whatever your situation is you could encourage lots of folks today and maybe were the dad and you know what it's like to get that phone call from your child that says wow. I trust you your to be the first person to call. We need to hear from you. 866-34-TRUTH 87884. So as I was mentioning Jesus labor love which is also the Christian car that's ministry that we have to Christian car guy car repair labor is just the labor for single moms widows and families in crisis. So we have front of a network of folks across the country that have agreed that if we have a need that comes through our and the Jesus labor. Love that they will help us out with that for this week. We got blasted with requests this mean some weeks they come through wanted to three at a time this week. It seemed like every time I looked at my email here with some more which is a blessing to have those opportunities to help, but it was another thing where I'm calling dad I'm in trouble.

I need some help in the most remarkable help came through one of the ladies that we had previously helped had volunteered to help make some of the phone calls.

All this requires because if we assume it needs help. We gotta verify their references. We gotta send out word to our prayer team.

We got a call the people to see exactly what their need is and they mean, sometimes called churches we call all sorts of folks that that that may need help. So again, what a blessing. If you try to get this lady on our show in the next few weeks because she sounds exactly like Whoopi Goldberg. So we now have Whoopi Goldberg working on the Jesus labor of love and we today are talking about when did you call for help.

866-348-7884 we have David is in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

He's got a call for you, at a time when he called on Jesus, David, you're on the Christian part I show good morning I am wonderful and very excited that you called us and tell us your story.

I have a couple quick on the highway right now, hotshot Courier and I was in Atlanta about three weeks ago and they like that traffic on about 30 miles an hour and all the sudden I heard a little ticking sound and we have vehicles that are all very well maintained and hurt and no evil next to figure out after another few seconds that I was going flat thing in the third lane of traffic. It might not faith them pulled over and over. At that point, on the flap.

I like not right away or I leave on a trip while driving but no one of those times when you think the firemen reverent but the last time I located it tightened like not much fun.

I would enable that point and at most three minute mark where one of the volunteers in areas not come out with their trucking. It is certain.

Youjust about one that had another one that happened on the road when you're out driving in different types of leather and time is not all people are people tell me where you hear Holly Sanford anyway. And then God let me know the specific prayer is one that I find me so many times you said there was another one. During the weather. Can you tell sister one where I went on about her eight hour trip. It was very, very nasty. One of those where God the worry in my left right shut down completely. We keep going down without merit.

Clouds of the North Carolina hadn't really been out that much and deftly dangerous driving log in normally the 55 miles an hour and I was not about 30 miles an hour that that not many people on the dollars coming up over craft man was literally pointing in my direction. Now he's out of line but the all around, went into the median and I can look closer and no one I went online online how I went bar laying out the length of the right arm length of the left or the right of the north and as I was flying down to about 20 miles an hour for little voice in my head Holy Spirit on the lookout in my mirror looked up in the rear view mirror and there was somebody they have to count 70 miles an hour and after that point I looked in my review mirror I pulled over by John that he pulled over another extension and he missed my broodmare by a couple of inches ever slow down a older but like that and I'm not at that boy Holy Spirit tell me looking mirror real quick. I would not pulled over and you have completely plowed into me and I was going on. Probably 775 and again that little boy so very very shellshocked about another that is great. Great story. Thank you so much for calling David. We want to hear your story. We got Chuck and we actually have a couple other calls so you call and enjoy them.

866-34-TRUTH 87884. God bless you David drive safe out there. Thank you for your prayers and his family, starting father knows best. My three sons hi remember those days when they had TV shows represented fathers having some kind of care for their children and in some kind of understanding and a family atmosphere where, wonder what's happened with that and will talk about that today in the Christian card I show if it's broke called dad. Dad's garage open 24 hours.

We want to hear your story, and perhaps when you call dad or maybe you called on their heavenly father, 866-348-7884 or in a solid Christian card. as well. We got Chuck is in Louisville, North Carolina checking on a Christian card I show the morning before arriving. What is it about 2007 September. Maybe it was December. I can't remember exactly. My car was in my driveway with the window totally out of my car on the right a lot of things wrong and I was in the bed asleep and I got a horrible phone call in the middle of the night to come to Raleigh immediately. My wife did. Had a I called my dad immediately afraid to drive it 77 years old that time became strained over plastic, window. It was pouring down rain got running the car coming all the way to Raleigh Durham and didn't complain about the window patient with that knocking and make your hood that I don't know that he just drove me down there and that may have been the hotel room crossing the hospital to hospital and my brother drive up the next day saw that it was almost totally at all anything about cars filled dad paid for the room for a couple weeks I have forgotten everything the credit card everything and my brother drive him back home the next day in my bedroom not done in the hospital story now that's a dance love and there's lots of folks out there right now Chuck with me.

We can join in prayer for your father and is easy in the hospital and is specific prayer that you would have them praying Chuck little while longer, okay now I shared Christ care what Ward with so he doesn't know and we can be praying for Chester to show yeah I do.

It was 2 o'clock in the morning 77 years old.

Battelle father does know best. That's awesome Chuck less, you will be. We all need to be praying really misty.

Praying for Chuck's father for salvation and for an extension of his life for Chuck.

Bless you check thank you. All right.

Well we have to have another caller but you might be the one that needs to call now 866-34-TRUTH 87884 this other calls.

My mother and she said she called mom why did you call dad. But this case you called son, Florida and make a play and I think you are in town and you came in and we had it towed to get an opponent with something fairly minor and once when I come call you. You probably when I was placed those grandmas were good cars.

I knew I could get sometimes you can't bless you mom thank you for calling in that story.

I'm trying to remember. I remember the blue blue. I don't remember the engine that's interesting because my my producers car, he called Tina because of its I forget exactly to tell Johnny what is it that makes it called Tina she's silver and the country Argentina is Argent the word Argent is a word silver Tina C has created. That's just it's very thanks mom got bless you and appreciate you calling so much.

Thank you.

And when did you have to call dad Wes with the question is today the Christian card. I sure would love to hear from you but we want to get into our appraisal by the real black book. That's where we search the Bible hidden treasure crap for the sermon. As I mentioned the beginning a show in March 2009, I was extremely busy doing interviews our publicist had asked me if I could come up with a plan that would save General Motors and that idea seemed crazy when he asked me, but upon praying about it.did give me a plan and it was a planet made perfect sense from a Christian card. I pointed you and I wrote it down after got it, you know, I called on God and he gave me the plan and so I want to play that interview for you right now, here's the plan that I outlined. As I said it to Fox and friends that I will. He knows what will save the auto industry and it won't take any bailout money.

Our next guest reveals the one thing that car companies can get out of bankruptcy. We come back will explain this to you here General Motors from bankruptcy if they would just follow his advice. He is the Christian card Robbie Delmore is joining us this morning. Robbie has worked in industry himself for over 35 years. Your dad also worked for GM as well write a car dealership yourself. You stated plan for GM. One of those basic things is that they need to make a $10,000 car and still make profit on. Here's the problem. Make profit off of $10,000 car. They have all these resources they need to think through. Never a different kind of box innovative thinking we need to make an expensive car because we might make more profit and in our problem is our profits. We got profit problem if they think back to like Henry Ford thought we gotta make a car that Americans can afford, and they can buy and we had to do some about the American death is a huge problem with liquidity. Just like in the housing market.

If you're sick car salesman out there every day because people that are 20,000 as I down. I put you in a car using your theory so much different than what John McCain just did this morning. John McCain made news on Fox news Sunday just moments ago he came out and said it's time for GM to go bankrupt so that it can we organize and most importantly can extinguish those very onerous labor contracts. Some people say are the big problem GM as you suggest, make a $10,000 car make a profit with those labor contracts are so expensive still in place.

What they going to do is to raise up a leader that can put everybody together. The labors gotta be involved in it. The unions are a big part of it. What Henry Ford did was put people to work on his job cutting stuff that's not the way to get out of a depression or recession is people have to work in order for that to happen.

So we need to build a car that will sell across the world. The Koreans are doing it. They got a card that the reason why there make a market share and whose gain in the market. Currently it's the least expensive car.

We can come underneath them with our resources and on the course would have to work with labor network with government to do some about excise taxes. All these things to say okay let's all get on the same page and let's make a car that is absolutely competitive $10,000 car is that what people want to live a beautiful car set that seated five people that got great gas mileage.

When you love your payments instead of being sure of dollars a year to focus is if you go back again like Henry Ford.

He was trying to figure out a way to make less expensive we break we will pick up the end of that conversation with Fox and friends talk about the result of that, and what happens when you called talk about all that on the Christian card I showed, and upstate got so much when is time to call to make that call. Or perhaps you're the father got the call. Or maybe you called on the heavenly father. That's what were talking about today, 866-348-7884 and if you just tune anything.

I was talking right before the break, about an interview that I had done on Fox and friends are publicist did come to me with this would seem like a crazy question.

Robbie, do you have a plan to save General Motors from bankruptcy and as I prayed through that and I asked my father for help. He gave me a really clear plan that made perfect sense to me. And the next thing I know is you heard right before the break, I was on Fox and friends since eventually having to defend that plan. The people who thought I was absolutely crazy because what I had said was that we need to make a car that's under $10,000 and obviously if you listen to that which you can see the whole interview.

It can car you can see the looks on their faces, which I'll never forget when they turned to me and they said you can't build a 10,000 hour car and what I had said to them was you Henry.

Heard his whole thing was he wanted to build a car that his workers could afford and so he was extremely ingenious like he would ask the people that built the crates on the parts that came in to build those crates to certain specifications so that he could use them for the floorboards in the car and what he did news for that.

He started Kingsford charcoal Wilhelmina the man knew how to save money and he built a car that his workers could pay for in three months of wage again if we looked at what happened back in 2009. The Koreans were the ones making market share because they had the least expensive car and had the American manufacturers, the car under 10,000 we would be putting workers to work by the millions because we would be supplying cars for Japan and China and India where they don't have cars. Those are things that I thought but the interesting thing was that all of a sudden. Here was this idea that I couldn't play that big. How can I Robbie Gilmore come up with an idea for the part of save General Motors and if so how would I defend that on national TV and in in thinking through that. Here's a quote from Miriam Williamson that seemed crazy when I first heard the you also may have heard the Coach Carter but here's a quote. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Actually, who were you not to be. You are a child of God you are playing your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us it is in everyone and let us let our light shine so we can unconsciously give other's permission to do this thing is we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others in the thing about that quote to Jim and said our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we've got this phenomenal ability. I have to tell you that I did that interview on Fox and friends, which is probably where I played bigger than I ever played in my entire life and I have to tell you as soon as I got done I ran out of that studio. My wife was with me and I ran into the streets and cyclist. Absolutely terrified. I cried like a baby. I was in that situation where I had faced this phenomenal fear that you may face some time when you're asked to play big. But guess what, when you do that people see it in one of my biggest concerns.

That morning was that I didn't in any way shape or form bring Jesus into the conversation. I got here I have this national platform.

I need to bring Jesus and people can find out where the real strength comes from. And as I cried.

We went back to our hotel room and there was my laptop and on that laptop was an email from a listener who had contacted his girlfriend out in California and she had emailed me that David said I watched the Christian card I on Fox and friends, and when I looked in his eyes I could see Jesus never forget what all that so your deepest fear may not be that your inadequate teacher powerful beyond measure. But there is more the story I want to tell you the very morning that Rick Wagoner resigned Pres. Obama had a news conference to be scheduled that morning are publicist scheduled interview for me right after that news conference on the very liberal talk radio station in Chicago and I'm always nervous to talk on the radio even more so to do a phone interview and now I was in hostile territory. I was on hold forever because they would cut it until Pres. Obama was finished, then first up is gonna be me and I was terrified. So I started praying and praying, God give me words give me words to make a difference. That was a prayer he answered in such a way that I am amazed and still amazed that this date right off the host hit me with a question very sarcastically from left field and it caught me totally off guard, especially since the president had finished talking and taking down the claimant per question was so you're the Christian card. I suppose you only give card rights to Christians. I truly didn't see that coming.

But even more so the words that came immediately out of my mouth the words that I know came from a place deep down in my heart I would suppose where God supplied them and this is what I said what I said to her that day was. I'll never forget the best phone call I got from my son. He had just gotten his driver's license and he was on his way home and he was on his way from from work and it was raining and he was going too fast and it spun out and dropped off the road into a very large ditch that phone call, meant the world to me that my son trusted me enough to be the first person he called when he was in real trouble. The American auto companies have driven their companies off into a ditch and now it's time for us to call that her response was also amazing to me. She said amen brother you preach it. My father was a preacher and he couldn't of said it any better. That left us into a conversation that was truly heavenly with what I thought was going to be this liberal talk show host had everything to do with God. She wanted to see what God's answer was for the auto industry in 2009, which by the way is very similar to God's answer for us today as as we look into this whole that situation I talk about it as much as I can on the show. It's one of the reasons I was called to do this was to see that if we go into this tremendous amount of debt in order to buy a car, then we are tying up resources that we could be using the move the kingdom forward is that the reason I drive my truck. It's out. You know I it's it's just turn about 370,000 miles and in doing so, the Lord is provided me a platform of showing that if you take care of your car it will last as long as you do and those of us were able to keep our cars longer and don't trade and tie up resources can use as resources for other things which it would be my prayer that the automobile industry would see that if they could buy cars that were affordable for everybody across the world that they would be building and building and building and building cars like Henry Ford what how did Detroit get to be where it was to begin with Henry to figured out how to make an assembly line so he could make really expensive cars so we could put lots of Americans to work. We have all the ingenuity that Henry Ford ever had and we have more than that because we can call on our father will give is way better plans and you could ever imagine. So whatever your situation whenever it's time remembered concocting. Thank you, Phyllis the Christian card I show today. Remember, you can go to Christian card. and find out all of about these things. You can find out about the Jesus labor of love. And remember, slow down.

Jesus walked everywhere he went, got it all done in 33 years and by the way, I think it's time to call Dan. In fact, he's dying to talk to you. I think he did that so we can talk
