This is Stu Epperson from the Truth Talk Podcast, connecting current events, pop culture, and theology, and we're so grateful for you that you've chosen the Truth Podcast Network.

It's about to start in just a few seconds. Enjoy it, and please share it around with all your friends. Thanks for listening, and thanks for choosing the Truth Podcast Network.

This is the Truth Network. But life doesn't usually feel that way. Jesus speaks of narrow gates and wide roads, but the masculine journey is filled with many twists and turns.

So how do we keep from losing heart while trying to find the good way when life feels more like a losing battle than something worth dying for? Grab your gear and come on a quest with your band of brothers who will serve as the guides in what we call the masculine journey. The masculine journey starts here now. Welcome to Masculine Journey, and if you're watching us live on either Facebook or YouTube, thank you for joining us live. And if you're not, you're missing out. You can join us any Tuesday.

We start recording about 710 Eastern Standard Time, and we record for the next hour as we go through both of the shows. And so if you ever, I don't know why you'd want to, but if you want to see what we look like, you may not do it twice. We're losing our face for radio status by doing that, you know that. Well, you're not.

I know every time I try to add a little something to the show, I pay for it. Oh, you set him up well for that. And that voice is the only one that you would want to say. Yeah, some of us are.

He's still pretty good looking. You're right, Eddie. But on to today's show is we are doing our favorite movie quotes. And it's not the movie quotes of all time. It's the ones that really impact us, the ones that stick with us. And so I'm going to play a clip here in a second. Of course, I'm playing my clip first because, you know, it only makes sense to do it that way.

You know, this time it actually is mostly true. But let me ask you a question. Why do you think Jesus taught in stories? And we talked about it on the show because stories speak to the heart. They bypass the intellect. They go right to the heart. They go right to the emotion. If you don't think that's true, what happens when you hear a song when you had something significant going on in your life when that song first played for the first time? Doesn't it emotionally take you back there?

Right? So those type of mediums can do that to you, right? And movie clips do that. When I listen to movie clips, a lot of times I think about the first time I watched that movie or other times I watched it. And we'll do clips that we've gotten from boot camp. But the first thing I want to play is just a montage of just famous movie quotes.

It's about a six-minute one, but I cut it down to two minutes. And it's just a variety of movies. But what I want you to do is if you like movies, think back about, do you know this movie from just this little snippet? And I bet you'll know more than what you think, right?

And if you really spent some time in it, it would take you back to some places of where was I when I saw that movie? Who was I with? What was I doing? What was going on in my life? And sometimes those come with great emotions, sometimes with not great emotions.

But they do move and speak right to the heart. And so let's go ahead and play that and then we'll come back and talk a little bit about it and talk about your guys' clips. You've got to ask yourself one question.

Do I feel lucky? Well, do you, Bunker? Good morning, Vietnam! I love the smell of my pump in the morning.

You're going to need a bigger boat. I feel the need, the need for speed. Roads, where we're going, we don't need roads. Snakes.

Why did it have to be snakes? Badges? We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges. Nobody puts baby in a corner.

Love means never having to say you're sorry. Here's looking at you, kid. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve?

You just put your lips together and blow. Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. I'll have what she's having.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. Shout out to my little friend! I'm going to make him an awfully calm refuse. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

A boy's best friend is his mother. No. I am your father. I'm Batman. I'm Spartacus! Bond. James Bond. Hello.

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Goonies never say die.

You're killing me, Sloss. I see dead people. Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while.

You could miss it. If you're busy living, you'll get busy dying. And they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom! Houston, we have a problem.

What we've got here is failure to communicate. You talking to me? No, that was over a period, well, back from probably, who was in there? Humphrey Bogart. That was probably one of the oldest actors that was in there, right? All the way up through, I guess probably the latest movie in there was probably Ferris Bueller's Day Off or something in that range. You know, there wasn't anything a whole lot newer than that. Maybe Braveheart. Braveheart was probably newer, or about the same time. But yeah, those were all, if you're in your, anywhere from your late 30s through 70s, 80s, you knew a lot of those clips.

Right? And so I just, I found it fun just to sit there and watch them and think about, oh, I knew what that's from. You know, because you can start to name the movies with just a little bit short clip.

And so they're impactful to us, but we're going to move on with the topic. And I actually wanted to go to David first and do your clip, because we do need a laugh track, something that's kind of funny. And yours is the closest to a laugh track. I think it's because you're all dressed the same. Well, yeah, we're the same.

Hey, you're just jealous. I mean, you know, Robby over there is in pretty close to orange, same color. He's trying, but he ain't getting there yet.

He's getting pretty close. This is more of the Howdy Doody version of our show. Howdy Doody, Woody from Toy Story.

And Howdy Doody, you don't know unless you're in your 60s or better. Yeah. Or Saul Rerun. Danny would say Andy Griffith. Yeah, he would.

Yeah, he would. So, all right. Well, my clip comes from Shrek. It's it's a clip we've used on the show before.

And if you've been to a boot camp, we've used it before. It's where Shrek is about to go fight a dragon to save Princess Fiona. And he goes into this whole spiel about ogres are layers like an onion.

And so we'll go into the clip and then we'll come back and talk about it. OK, let me get this straight. You're going to go fight a dragon and rescue a princess just so Farquhar to give you back a swamp, which you only don't have because he filled it full of freaks in the first place.

Is that about right? You know what? Maybe there's a good reason Donkey shouldn't talk. I don't get it, Shrek. Why don't you just pull some of that ogre stuff on him? You know, throttle him, lay siege to his fortress, grind his bones to make your bread. You know, the whole ogre trip.

Oh, I know what. Maybe I could have decapitated an entire village and put their heads on a pike, gotten a knife, cut open their spleen and drink their fluids. Does that sound good to you? No, not really. No. For your information, there's a lot more to ogres than people think. Example?

Example? OK. Um, ogres are like onions. They stink? Yes. No. Oh, they make you cry. No. Oh, you leave them out in the sun, they get all brown, start sprouting little white hairs.

No. Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers.

You get it. We both have layers. Oh, you both have layers.

Oh. You know, not everybody like onions. Cake. Everybody loves cakes. Cakes have layers.

I don't care what everyone likes. Ogres are not like cakes. You know what else everybody like? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person and you say, hey, let's get some parfaits. They say, no, I don't like no parfaits.

Parfaits are delicious. No! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden.

Ogres are like onions. End of story. Bye-bye.

See you later. Parfaits may be the most delicious thing on the whole planet. You know, I think I preferred your humming. Do you have a tissue or something? Because I'm making a mess.

Just the word parfait made me start slopping. You know, that's a great clip. I mean, it's in so many different ways. But for me, you know, that clip really speaks and uses the words from that that God helped sustain me throughout is to really teach me that I have layers that that peel back. And as soon as I get to one layer, I realize there's another layer and another layer. But even more so in people that I encounter and, you know, just day to day life, whether it be at work or my previous work at Sheetz, you know, coming in contact with people, whether they're having a bad day or not. You know, let's peel back those layers and try to try to figure out what's going on, whether it's employees or or coworkers or, you know, maybe clients or anything like that. You know, things are going on in people's lives that we have no idea of what it is.

And it's like an onion, you know, put back those layers and start to try to figure it out. Yeah. You were making the point I was hoping you would with David was that, you know, when I went to my first boot camp and I had some breakthrough. Right.

Especially on a wound that I'd carried for a long time. I thought, OK, that's over. It's done. Right. And then a few boot camps later, God wants to go back into that. And I'm like, do you remember we just fixed that one?

Not that one ago. And he uses that on me. He's like, yep, it's like an onion. There's layers. Yeah.

Right. And so there's layers in everything we do. There's layers and depths of relationship. You know, you can get more intimate and more intimate with people as you grow closer.

Right. It gets deeper layers. Everything in your life has layers when you really think about it. Our healing has layers. Our wounding has layers. Our relationships have layers. You know, they all kind of come into that thing.

And so that little simple thing from an animated movie has spoke volumes into my life like it has to yours. Yeah. Yeah, definitely not. Not so much parfaits, more like stinky onions. You know, every now and again, there's some cake and parfaits in there. I work with you and you are more like an onion. Yeah.

I mean, you don't smell so pretty yourself. I know. That's why I'm on this side of the room and everybody else on the other side. But anyway. Well, next, Robby, we actually have your clip.

Yes, believe it or not, we have you up next. And so I thought I would surprise you there. Well, it does. It does. My clip was from the movie Bagger Vance.

And it went minutes. Oh, no, we're good. Maybe. Maybe.

Yeah. From the movie Bagger Vance. And if you haven't seen it, you think it's about golf, but it really isn't. And at this point in time, the golfer hero of the show is down 12 strokes.

And he's been pretty much an embarrassment the whole time. At this point in time, the Holy Spirit character, which is Bagger Vance, is trying to break through a little bit of his crustiness of his heart and give him an idea of, you know, actually how much fun it would be to play the game. Here we go. I think it's time. Time for what? Time for you to see the field. The field? I see the field. It's four hundred forty five yards long. It's got a little red flag at the end of it. It's 12 strokes ahead of it. That ain't it.

Because if you see the field, you wouldn't be hacking at that ball like you was chopping weeds out from under your front porch. Just give me the club. Sorry I brought it up here. You're going to take that half away.

All right. What's the field? Fix your eyes on Bobby Jones. Knock it out there, Bobby.

Let's practice one. Almost like it's searching for someone. Then he finds it. Watch how he settles himself right into the middle of it. Feel that focus. He got a lot of shots he could choose from.

Duffs and tops and skulls. There's only one shot that's in perfect harmony with the field. One shot that's his. Authentic shot. And that shot is going to choose him. Well, when we come back, Robby's going to tell us about that shot that chooses him.

We'll join you after the break. What we have in our boot camp is something that makes you stronger and gives you the strength to go on your regular walk with God. It's something that will make you be bigger than you were when you got there. I listened to Morgan Snyder's book driving to work last year, and that was a very profound experience. So this kind of culminated into it.

I've been invited to it several times and just it never worked out. And God really had it set up that I came last time. So coming into this one, I knew this one went deeper and I really wanted it. It's a break for me to get outside of things I've got going on. And I just needed a break from it and needed to reconnect. And it's been absolutely that, this process.

The covenant of silence, silent prayer. Those are some of my favorite parts. This is real connection with the Lord. You hear him speak, you can get direction, guidance, anything you're missing is there.

You always learn something new. It's fun experiencing it with other men. It's fun standing for them and what they're going through. We're all different and unique, but we all go through the same struggles.

And when you hear somebody else went through it too, it kind of gives you an encouragement that, hey, you can make it through this. And God's got you and He's going to hold you up through it and He's going to carry you to the next level. Register today at Let's all go to the lobby. Let's all go to the lobby. Let's all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat. Delicious things to eat. The popcorn can't be beat.

The sparkling drinks are just dandy. The chocolate bars and the candy. So let's all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat. Well, sorry that was so long, but everybody's out getting a treat.

So I had to wait till they came back. Try to find a bump that's about movies. I'm just saying, there's not a lot of them out there. And so that made me think, and Robby said it very well, if you ever went to the drive-in, that played into every drive-in movie.

Some version of that. And it actually, I played an indoor movie sometimes. Particularly since most drive-ins do not have lobbies. Well, yeah, that's true.

That's true. They had a concession stand. They did. Let's all go to the concession stand. Before we get back to Robby, I want to see if I did this right.

I don't think I did, but we'll see. Watch how he settle himself right into the middle of it. Alright, I want to play a little bit of Robby's clip, and then we're going to come back and let him finish talking about it. Because he's talking about seeing the field. So let's play it and come back to it. Watch how he settle himself right into the middle of it. Feel that focus. He got a lot of shots he could choose from.

Duffs and tops and skulls. There's only one shot that's in perfect harmony with the field. One shot that's his. Authentic shot. And that shot is going to choose him. There's a perfect shot out there trying to find each and every one of us. All we got to do is get ourselves out of this way. Let it choose us. Look at him.

He in the field. Yeah, so that clip we're talking about, movie clips that get down in your soul or get down in your heart, so to speak. And this especially speaks to me because I love to do creative work. Those people who know me well know I love to work on my show. I especially love to work on the intro to my show. I spend a lot of time on that music. And I got a lot of songs that I could choose.

I got a lot of things I could do. And I work with that, believe it or not, usually for at least an hour almost every Saturday morning because I'm waiting for that shot to choose me. And I know when it's right when I start crying.

I know that it's that way. And so beautifully I got a chance to interview Joel and Luke Shortbone, who are king in country, last Friday actually. And had a really neat conversation. I mean, these guys were so authentic and so wonderful to talk to about their movie, Unsung Hero, that's coming up. And I asked them about their creative process. And I asked them actually about this clip because this clip just resonated my heart.

I said, have you ever seen it? And I described it and the idea that the shot chooses you. And I think it was Joel that said, you know, Robby, we believe that your art, when it's close to your heart, will draw the most people. And when you think about that, your heart is where God resides, right? And that when it gets close to your heart, that's when the tears start to come. In fact, then Luke said, yeah, I know it's kind of right when my eyes start to sweat, right?

And so, you know, you know those lines in the song where all of a sudden you had to pull over to the side of the road, right? Or something that hits you right square in that spot, whatever that might be. And so many of these movie quotes do that. But in a way, they're highlighting God for us in a way that we know either came out of the scripture or something we had in our own personal experience. And so it's those kind of things that touch us, and with that we can actually touch others.

Exactly. A couple things on your clip, but before I get to that, when we're at a boot camp, you know, and we're going over a topic, I think the clips are sometimes the most surprising thing. Because you're, okay, here's a movie clip, and then there's something in it that hits your heart, right? It's not the movie that hits your heart, it's God bringing up something that hits your heart. And that's your time to go out and say, okay, God, why? Why did that really hit my heart? Why did this really speak to me? Why is layers important?

Why is authentic swing important? Right? And let him help you unpack that, right? But it's important that you do that because he's doing something to get your attention. You know, when that song hits you or that TV show hits you or whatever it is, it's time, as we talked about many times on here, to check under the hood. So, okay, God, what's going on there?

Why am I getting this emotion from this thing, right? And let him work you through it, which is pretty important. You know, on your clip of the shot chooses you, it reminds us that, as we've talked about on the show, that we're all each given our unique version of God's glory, that we're supposed to show this earth, right? Our authentic swing, right? And no one else can fill that void if we don't. And so it's really important that we find that swing because the world's going to go without that unique vision of God unless you step into it. Not out of pressure, out of really cool honor that God lets you do that, right? But to walk in him in it and to find that thing, how cool is that? That he trusts so much that he lets idiots like us, and I know you guys, I can say that.

I'm one. I'm the chief idiot right here doing it. But he lets us be a part of that process in other people's lives, right? He trusts in us that much even though he knows how we are. That's so incredibly cool. And it's so cool to see because you can tell with each of those guys here, and we both know this, Sam, because we've been around a long time, that it hit him in the heart.

And when it hits him in the heart, then they can express it in a way that nobody else can. Right, absolutely. Absolutely. Andy, you want to say something? I forgot what I was going to say now. Okay. I was going to grab it too, and you were faster than I am because you're younger and stronger.

And it wasn't the same mic anyway, so we both had a shot. One of the things that really hit me in that, I also forgot, so have you thought of yours yet? No. No, something happened to me today that has really been on my heart, and it's sort of allowing God to do things. I was talking to a guy I've been in church all his life, and he says, Well, I prayed before, but a couple days ago I just started talking to God like he was a person. Well, no, like he was a person.

Yeah, he was there, but I just started talking to him like I talked to anybody else, and I feel different. And I said, Well, that's a prayer to quote another guy in the movie. But I basically said, Well, when you can get to that point, you're developing your relationship, and you can get religion out, and we went into religion being many people's God instead of the Creator of the universe. But I mean, I got goosebumps then. I got them out just because that was something close to my heart. God's someone we all can talk to and need to, and that's what he wants.

What he wants is to have that relationship with us. So in other words, he peeled back a layer and got into a deeper intimacy with God. Back to Shrek, right? Parfait, I'm sorry.

I don't like onions. You're setting by David, so I can understand why. So I remember what I was going to say was, you were talking about ways you step into that, how you kind of come alive, and you're like, How cool is this? I think part of it is, and kind of where I was at for some time, is God intends us to be not happy, not at peace where we're at when we're not alive, fulfilling, we're not seeing the field. And that's what happened with Juna. He had gotten off.

He is living in the smaller story because he had gotten taken out. And so I guess that was just the point, is that there's that beauty of stepping into that. But if we don't step into that, we're not going to be offering up what God has to the world that he created us for, but we're going to be very – there's a lot of depression, a lot of feeling of why have I been born, a lot of frustration with all that.

And I think that's where a lot of men are at times, is you're trying to get life from so many other things than what God created you to receive from. Absolutely. Well, we're at an awkward timeframe. We don't really have enough time for another clip, so we do have a bit more time to talk. Is that my fault?

No, no, no. I'm just staring at you as if it is. That was appealing. So have you guys always really liked movie clips? I know, Andy, you said that until you came to boot camp, that was not something that really spoke to you too much. Well, I mean, I remember watching them, and my heart would come alive, but then I had to go back to work on my day, you know.

It wasn't something that really affected my life. Now, it's almost to the point where I'm always looking, not just for a – I'm looking for an awesome truth, an awesome quote in a movie, whereas it was just for entertainment before. And I feel like there's so much more redeeming value in movies, and, you know, it was just a treasure chest from the 90s, 2000s, that timeframe. There was just so many rich movies that really made points that God wanted to make to people, and it helped my heart come alive, and why I've kind of gone back to the movies a lot for inspiration and direction.

Yeah, I've been trying. I've seen, you know, most of the movies that we have at boot camp, but I've really tried every time to make sure I watch. If I'm using a movie predominantly in a talk or a lot of clips from it, I've been trying to go back and rewatch the movie before it, even though I've known it pretty well, but just let it feel fresh to go through. And it's not – again, it's not the movie. It's not the writer of the movie.

It's not that. It's, God, what are you doing in that, right? What are you saying to me in that?

What are you trying to convey to me? Darrell Bock So it seems like, you know, I'll never forget my first boot camp. I came and I went, oh, this is so amazing, because they've taken the idea of Jesus and parables and shown these stories that we get to see in cinemagraphic art. These people are truly artists, and these moments that we grab are obviously close to somebody's heart, and they knew it when they did that, and they touched us. And it was actually the spark that was like, guys, we got to do a radio show.

You remember? Darrell Bock Oh, absolutely. Darrell Bock We got to do a radio show like this, because this is so – right, because stories touch the heart. And, you know, that's where everybody's authentic swing is. And as that begins to come alive, then, oh, my goodness, you know, what a difference it's made in my life. Darrell Bock Jim? Darrell Bock One of the things that – and movies do this for me as well, but there are so many things that happen, and it'll bring one or two things to me often, a song. And I find myself singing songs and saying, okay, why am I singing this song, and I'll be able to reflect on what just happened, and there's an obvious thing.

Same thing happens with the clips. And my wife and I don't have a lot of things we do in common, but we both like to go to movies. And every movie she watches, with one exception, she has found God in there. And – Darrell Bock Princess Bride was the other one? Darrell Bock Oh, no. Actually, in this one, the volleyball might have been – Darrell Bock Oh, yes, that's right. Yeah, yeah.

I remember the castaway between that movie. Yes. So we do have a boot camp coming up. It's coming up November 21st, I think it is, through 24th.

But it is the weekend before Thanksgiving. And so that Thursday through Sunday, the weekend before Thanksgiving, please go register at If you're watching this live, stick with us. We're going to go on a little break for a few minutes and come back and do the after-hours segment. We'll do it. If you're not listening live, then just go ahead and hit the button and go to the after-hours because you'll be able to listen to it right away because we're going to record that next and talk more about movie clips. But go out and love somebody well this week and focus on the things under the hood that God brings to your attention. We'll talk with you next week.
