What Did Jesus Say? – Terry Christian Interview
Terry Christian is a former motivational speaker and executive trainer with over 20 years of experience and over 2500 presentations to both, public and private audiences in America and Canada. He is an avid reader, not just of the Bible, but especially the “Words in Red” – meaning the Words of Jesus Himself, as recorded in the Bible. This led him to write his book, “What Did Jesus Say: The Seven Messages from the Master,” and is available on Amazon, Kindle and as an audiobook as well. His life is now dedicated to helping Christian brothers and sisters live in a never ending state of peace, love, truth and forgiveness as followers of Christ.
Help me welcome to the program, Terry Christian. Terry, thank you for taking the time to visit with us today!
Ok, the first question I always ask, is this: Tell us, who is Terry Christian?
You went through a lot growing up. Growing up in an abusive home…tell us about your upbringing and how that affected your outlook on life?
You said you had a “near death experience” when you were 23 years old. Tell us about that and how that affected you…
You became a motivational speaker. How did that part of your life come about? How did you end up with that career choice?
After your father passed away, you moved home to take care of your mother. All of this put your book, basically, on hold. Then, after her passing, you went back to completing your book – but ended up with some physical problems that sidelined you again. Did you ever get the feeling the devil was trying to stop you from publishing this work?
You became a minister and a Christian counselor. How has that career changed influenced you in writing this book?
Now, your book contains over 500 passages from the Bible. You have organized this book in a special way, according to the title, “The Seven Messages from the Master.” What are those areas?
Why did you choose those topic areas?
What makes this book different from other Christian books?
Who was this book written for? What demographics would be most blessed by reading this book?
In your opinion, what do you think Jesus would say about the days in which we live today?
What do you believe Jesus expects from His followers, Christian believers, today?
Terry, are you ready for “The Lightning Round?” This is a series of randomly selected questions from a list of about 25 questions or so that I’ve been asked and that I know other pastors and ministers have been asked before. Just give a short answer to each question…and we are not going to go over all 25 – only 5 or 6… Are you ready?
First question: How can you know for sure there is a God?
How can you know for sure you are saved?
Why are there poor people who believe in God and rich people who do not believe in God?
Besides the Bible, what book are you reading right now?
Last Question: If you woke up tomorrow morning and realized your entire life was a dream…but yet you were able to keep all the experiences and complete memory of everything that happened, what would you do, how would you go about doing it and why?
Terry, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule and join us today!
Your book would be great for Bible Study’s and as a devotional, correct?
And it is available as an audio book? Did you record it yourself?
Is it available in book stores or only on Amazon, etc?
Folks, you need to get this book, either for yourself or even better yet – order TWO copies and give one to friend! Amen! You cannot get any better Biblical Resource than studying the Words of Jesus. It just does not get any better than that! I will put links in the show notes so you can order directly from the links.
Terry, if someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or perhaps to do an interview such as this, how can they get in touch with you?
That’s all the time we have for today! For Terry Christian and myself, this is Pastor Bob reminding you to BE BLESSED IN ALL THAT YOU DO!
