ISN’T IT GOOD TO BE FREE? [cheering]
WE ARE SO BLESSED. GLORIA GAITHER WROTE THAT LYRIC. STAND UP, GLORIA. SHE IS ONE OF MY HEROES. PLEASE STAND UP. I LOVE HER. TELL YOU WHAT. THE PAST 13 YEARS TRAVELING WITH
THE VOCAL BAND, THE BEST THING ABOUT IT HAS BEEN BREAKFAST WITH
GLORIA. SHE HAS TAKEN MY BRAIN AND
SHREDDED IT IN SO MANY DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST
BRILLIANT HUMAN BEINGS YOU’LL EVER KNOW AND ONE OF THE
GODLIEST WOMEN I’VE EVER KNOWN IN MY LIFE. AND I LOVE YOU, GLORIA. I LOVE YOU, AND I’M GLAD YOU’RE
HERE. I’VE BEEN WITH THE VOCAL BAND
FOR–I NEED SOME WATER. I NEED–HOLD ON, HOLD ON. THIS IS NO JOKE. OH, THAT’S A LITTLE LORD’S
SUPPER CUP OF WATER RIGHT THERE. WE COULD HAVE A PRESBYTERIAN
BAPTISM WITH THAT WATER. BAPTIZE THE WHOLE FRONT ROW. THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL A BUDGET. BEEN WITH THEM 13 YEARS. BUT EIGHT YEARS OF IT I’VE BEEN
IN NASHVILLE. ACTUALLY, THE FIRST–8, 9, 10,
11, 12–5 YEARS– I’M A COLLEGE GRADUATE. I WAS LIVING IN ATLANTA,
AND THEN BILL CALLED ME AND SAID, “MARK, YOU NEED TO MOVE TO
NASHVILLE, ‘CAUSE IT WOULD REALLY MAKE IT MORE CONVENIENT
FOR ME.” AND I THOUGHT, “WELL, BILL,
THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO: MAKE IT CONVENIENT FOR YOU.” AND I MOVED TO NASHVILLE, AND I
MOVED INTO A HIGH-RISE, ‘CAUSE I HAD ALWAYS WANTED TO LIVE IN ONE
EVER SINCE I WAS A KID WHEN I USED TO WATCHTHE JEFFERSONS.DO YOU REMEMBER THAT SHOW? [laughter]
♪ WELL, WE’RE MOVIN’ ON UP ♪ ♪ TO THE EAST SIDE. ♪
REMEMBER THAT? ♪ TO THAT DELUXE APARTMENT ♪
♪ IN THE SKY. ♪ ♪ OKAY, THAT’S ENOUGH OF THAT. YOU KNOW, THAT’S THE A.D.D. VERSION OF THAT SONG. THAT’S ALL YOU NEED. YOU GOT A.D.D.? JUST A SNIPPET. BUT I LIVED THERE FOR ABOUT FIVE
MONTHS, AND THEN I REALIZED IN THIS HIGH-RISE THERE WAS ONLY
FIVE FLOORS. BUT IT’S HIGH ENOUGH. AND I LIVED THERE FOR ABOUT FIVE
MONTHS, AND I REALIZED THAT I AM IN A NURSING HOME. I MEAN, EVERY–IT WAS JUST–
AND THEY’RE SWEET, BUT BENGAY WAS IN THE AIR EVERY NIGHT. [laughter]
AND SO I FINALLY GOT ME A HOUSE. I WANTED TO GET ME A HOUSE LIKE
THE OLDDICK VAN DYKE SHOW.IT’S ALL ONE FLOOR. I WAS TIRED OF THE ELEVATOR. I WAS TIRED OF, YOU KNOW,
CLIMBING UP STEPS WHEN THE ELEVATOR WAS BROKEN, SO I GOT ME
A HOUSE ALL ONE FLOOR. IT’S GOT A LITTLE GARAGE. A COUPLE OF STEPS, YOU’RE INSIDE
THE HOUSE. NO BIG DEAL, YOU KNOW? I LOVE IT–REALLY COOL HOUSE. BUT THE PROBLEM IS, WHEN YOU ARE
IN A HIGH-RISE, YOU HAVE A MAINTENANCE MAN. WHEN YOU OWN THE HOME, YOU ARE
THE MAINTENANCE MAN. AND SO I HAD TO DISCOVER A LOT
OF THINGS ABOUT KEEPING UP A HOUSE, WHICH HOME DEPOT CAME IN
HANDY FOR THAT. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’VE GOT HOME
DEPOT UP HERE. DO Y’ALL HAVE HOME DEPOT?>>[all] YEAH.>>Mark: DON’T YOU LOVE IT?>>[all] YEAH.>>Mark: IS THAT NOT A MAN’S
HEAVEN? I THOUGHT–I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST
LIKE A HARDWARE STORE. I’D NEVER BEEN TO HOME DEPOT. I HAD NO REASON TO GO TO HOME
DEPOT, BUT I WENT THERE LOOKING FOR SOME PICTURE HANGERS FOR MY
NEW HOUSE. I WAS GOING TO HANG SOME
PICTURES OF MY FAMILY, AND SO I WENT TO LOOK FOR THOSE HOOKS,
YOU KNOW, YOU STICK INTO THE WALL? I WALKED INTO HOME DEPOT. AND FIRST OF ALL, I NOTICED
THEIR CARTS AREN’T LIKE KROGERS’. THEY’RE BIG. YOU COULD HOUSE MISSIONARIES ON
FURLOUGH IN THEIR CARTS. AND I WENT THERE LOOKING FOR
PICTURE HANGERS. I LEFT WITH A JACUZZI. EVERY AISLE I WENT DOWN WAS
SOMETHING ELSE I COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT. I WAS DOWN TWO OR THREE AISLES,
AND MY CART WAS FULL. FINALLY I CAME ACROSS–ABOUT THE
THIRD OR FOURTH AISLE, I CAME ACROSS A WHOLE BIG BOX OF
THESE BLUE TOILET PLUNGERS. MY MOTHER ALWAYS HAD THE SUCTION
CUP KIND. YOU KNOW–YOU PROBABLY HAVE
THOSE. YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT? BUT THESE ARE, LIKE, ALL ONE
PIECE AT HOME DEPOT: BLUE PLASTIC, AND THEY’VE GOT AN
ACCORDION END ON THEM. AND THEY’RE AMAZING. AND I BOUGHT TWO, ‘CAUSE I GOT
TWO TOILETS. DON’T YOU–
DON’T YOU HATE GOING TO SOMEONE’S HOUSE FOR DINNER AND
THEY’VE HID THE PLUNGER? [laughter]
I THINK THAT, REALLY– AND YOU GOTTA INTERRUPT A
SEVEN-COURSE MEAL. “EXCUSE ME, BUT WHERE’D Y’ALL
PARK YOUR PLUNGER?” AND THAT WATER’S RISING UP. IS THAT NOT PANIC IN YOUR HEART? I MEAN, ANY BATH–
I BECOME INSTANT CHARISMATIC ON THAT. “STOP!”
AT HOME DEPOT, THEY GOT THIS ONE-PIECE PLUNGER THAT IS
AMAZING. I WAS USING MINE THE OTHER DAY,
AND THE GUY THREE DOORS DOWN CALLED AND SAID, “THANKS. WHAT KIND OF PLUNGER WAS THAT?”
THIS BABY WORKS. AND ALSO, I GOT ME A–I GOT ME A
GAS GRILL, YOU KNOW, ‘CAUSE, YOU KNOW, YOU GET A BACK PORCH LIKE
I’VE GOT NOW, GOT ME A GAS GRILL. GOT THE BIGGEST SUGAR MAPLE TREE
IN NASHVILLE HANGING OVER MY– AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT THE FORMER
OWNERS TOLD ME WHEN THEY WERE TRYING TO SELL THE DUMP. AND I GOT ME A GAS GRILL, AND I
GOT IT ALL SET UP, AND I INVITED SOME FRIENDS OVER, AND I WAS ALL
EXCITED TO HAVE THEM IN MY NEW HOUSE. INVITED NORMAN AND BRENDA, WHO’S
HERE TONIGHT, AND THEY INVITED SOME FRIENDS OF THEIRS THAT I
HAD NOT MET UNTIL THIS MOMENT IN TIME. AND WE HAD THE STEAKS. YOU KNOW, I GRILLED THE STEAKS
MYSELF. AND I FOUND OUT IF YOU GET A
CHEAP PIECE OF MEAT AND PUT ENOUGH GARLIC ON IT, IT’LL TASTE
LIKE A FILET MIGNON. [laughter]
SO I GRILLED THE STEAKS, AND NORMAN BROUGHT THE BAKED BEANS,
AND BRENDA BROUGHT SOME POTATO SALAD. AND SOMEBODY ELSE BROUGHT TEA,
AND WE WERE JUST HAVING A GOOD TIME. AND AFTERWARDS, WE WERE HAVING
COFFEE, YOU KNOW, LIKE ADULTS DO. AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT
POLITICS, WHICH I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT; BUT IT’S NEVER STOPPED ME
FROM HAVING AN OPINION. AND WE WERE JUST SAYING THIS. AND I SAID, “YOU KNOW, I VOTE
THIS WAY, BECAUSE I’M A CHRISTIAN, AND I BELIEVE CERTAIN
THINGS THAT I WANT TO, YOU KNOW, SEE HAPPEN,” OR WHATEVER. AND NANCY, WHO WAS A FRIEND OF
BRENDA’S, SPOKE UP AND SAID, “WELL, I DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD,
AND I VOTE THE OPPOSITE OF YOU.” AND I DIDN’T CARE HOW SHE VOTED. ALL I HEARD WAS, “I DON’T
BELIEVE IN GOD.” I GOT SO EXCITED. I’D NEVER HAD ONE IN MY HOME
BEFORE. I WENT AROUND AND LOCKED ALL THE
DOORS. I SAID, “YOU’RE GOING TO BE HERE
AWHILE.” OH, WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME. I STARTED TO EXPLAIN. I SAID, “YOU KNOW WHAT? I WOULD BE AN ATHEIST TOO IF I
HAD THAT MUCH FAITH. IT TAKES A LOT OF FAITH TO
BELIEVE ALL THE ORDER AROUND US EVOLVED FROM SOME GASEOUS BELCH
IN THE UNIVERSE 6 BILLION YEARS AGO.” YOU KNOW, ORDER NEVER COMES FROM
CHAOS UNLESS SOMEBODY PUTS IT TOGETHER. ALL THE ORDER IN THE UNIVERSE–
YOU KNOW, IF I TOOK MY WATCH APART, MY TIMEX INDIGLO–
I LOVE MY WATCH. I WAS UP ALL NIGHT LOOKING AT
THAT WATCH. ABOUT EVERY 15 MINUTES
I WAS CHECKING IT LAST NIGHT. BUT WHAT IF I TOOK IT OFF MY ARM
AND TOOK IT TOTALLY APART AND STUFFED THE PIECES IN A SACK,
AND THEN I SHOOK THE SACK FOR 6 BILLION YEARS? WHAT IF AFTER 6 BILLION YEARS–
WHAT WOULD BE THE CHANCES OF ME PULLING OUT A WATCH THAT’S
TICKING AND ON TIME? I DON’T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH FAITH
FOR THAT. I CERTAINLY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH
FAITH TO THINK THAT THIS COMPLICATED UNIVERSE AROUND
US–AND EVEN IN OUR BODIES, D.N.A. THEY’VE JUST IN THE LAST FEW
YEARS DISCOVERED D.N.A. I’VE HAD IT ALL ALONG. [laughter]
AND LOOK AT YOUR THUMBPRINT. EVERYBODY LOOK AT YOUR
THUMBPRINT RIGHT NOW. DID YOU KNOW THAT’S AN ORIGINAL? YOU ARE THUMBODY. THERE AIN’T ANOTHER ONE LIKE YOU
IN THE WORLD. I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO
BELIEVE ALL THE ORDER AROUND US CAME FROM CHAOS. AND ONCE YOU REALIZE YOU DON’T
HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT THERE ISN’T A GOD, YOU NEED
TO GO ON THE HUNT TO FIND OUT WHO THIS GOD IS. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? FOR US TO KNOW GOD, HE’D HAVE
HAD TO FIND US. IN THIS GREAT BIG UNIVERSE, HOW
ARE WE GOING TO FIND GOD? THE BEST WE CAN DO IS SEND A
TONKA TRUCK TO MARS. [laughter]
AND IT HIT A ROCK NAMED BARNEY, AND IT HADN’T BEEN HEARD FROM
SINCE. IN THIS GREAT, EVER-EXPANDING
UNIVERSE, HOW ARE WE GOING TO FIND GOD? HE FOUND US.>>AMEN.>>Mark: BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? HE CAME THROUGH THE BACK DOOR. HE CAME THROUGH A VIRGIN GIRL. MY COLLEGE PROFESSOR SAID SHE
WAS 13 YEARS OF AGE. NOW, I DON’T KNOW WHERE HE GOT
THAT IN THE BIBLE, BUT I LEARNED A LOT OF THINGS IN BIBLE COLLEGE
I NEVER READ IN THE BIBLE. [laughter]
BUT WE DO KNOW THAT SHE WAS A VIRGIN MAIDEN AND SHE WAS YOUNG. NOW, I WOULDN’T HAVE COME–IF I
HAD BEEN GOD AND I WAS COMING TO EARTH, THAT’S NOT THE WAY I’D
HAVE COME. I’D HAVE HAD A BIG GOLDEN
STAIRCASE COMING OUT OF THE SKY. I’D HAVE HAD CHERUBIM SINGING
AND SERAPHIM SWINGING AND GABRIEL PLAYING A DIXIELAND
MELODY ON THAT TRUMPET. AND I’D LET ‘EM KNOW I’M COMING
TO EARTH. AND WHEN I GET HERE, I’M GOING
TO KICK SOME TAIL, ‘CAUSE I’M A BAPTIST. [laughter]
WELL, THAT’S NOT THE WAY GOD CAME. YOU KNOW WHO I FEEL SORRY FOR? THE PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THE
MOTEL WHILE GOD WAS BEING BORN IN THE BARN. JUST A FEW BARNYARD ANIMALS GOT
TO WITNESS THE ENTRANCE OF THE KING AND A VIRGIN MAIDEN AND HER
ESPOUSED, HER HUSBAND, JOSEPH. AND THEN SHE GOT TO GROW UP WITH
HIM. ISN’T THAT COOL? I MEAN, SHE GOT TO–
NOW, MY DAD–MY DAD’S HERE TONIGHT. MY DAD BELIEVES JESUS KNEW WHO
HE WAS THE SECOND HE WAS CONCEIVED. I DON’T. AND WHEN DADDY DOES HIS CONCERT,
HE CAN SAY WHAT HE WANTS. [laughter]
I SAID, “DADDY, IF JESUS KNEW WHO HE WAS THE SECOND HE WAS
CONCEIVED, THEN HE WAS FAKING ALL THOSE DIAPER CHANGES.”

i love how hes so hillarious but then brings it in so seriously too 🙂 i love this stuff

At 6:00 he starts talking about politics and the atheist at his house. He licked all the doors. He had me had one in his home before. Lol. 😹

I’m a fan of a few clean comedians but I’ve gotta say, this guy had me laughing and smiling non stop the entire 18 minutes and 59 seconds!! Love love love his style, sense of humor and how everything tied into how great our God is.

Hi, Mandy here from MANDY SCARLETT MUSIC. I appeared on The

     XOXO

Mike Lowry, you are a walking testament to when God wants you to hear a message it comes through. Thank you for the reminder, the laugh and the love of being a Christian. As my Granny used to say "God bless ya".

Maybe the most subtle form of blasphemy I’ve heard to date? Notice how are you invokes science and NASA statistics as if it were the law of the land.! It is not! Children do your homework!

I like the comedy in their shows, Mark Lowry is hilarious! But I'm an Atheist, not a Christian & I never want to be again!

Am I the only one who finds the camera's switching from Mark to the audience every 30 seconds EXTREMELY annoying?

I am laughing leaning against my chair and yet I am blessed and touched…Love you Mark…May you live long and make people laugh and get blessed!

Protestants….   Don't be scared of Mary. We won't accuse you of being Catholic.   She was a Mother who knew. No, she's not a God, but who in the history of the world can say they gave birth to him.  Jesus loved his mother, don't you think?

Mark Lowrey and The Gaithers were promoted by my parents along with hundreds of other very famous musicians my family promoted and produced, they are also very good friends for over 50 years now. Unfortunately Mark had a heart attack and died during one of the concerts, a very funny man who is missed by all of us! I bet he and my dad who recently passed are making everyone laugh in heaven! Miss you Mark, love you still, see you when its my time, tell daddy hello!

I laughed not only because of how he said it but also how the message of Christ is such a joy to talk about

Laugh all the way to God. Totally enjoyed the spiritual humor, shows god laughs too, it is the best medicine.

If all preachings were done this way, I would never doze off or tune out. Love Mark and God bless his soul.

I never changed from laughter to crying so fast. His witty humor is brilliant and his pondering is real and intelligent. And then he mentioned Lazarus. I cried because I was so touched by that story. How many people put together that the Lazarus of the parable and the Lazarus whom Yeshua wept over were the same?

We think in the parable that Lazarus never got his wish but he did, and our lesson in this is that God didn't bring him back from burning guilt of hell for his own selfish reasons, but because he was truly wanting to come back for the sake of others, to warn them of that place so they too didn't wind up there.

Yeshua loved this man and through Yeshua he became one of his greatest witnesses of all, probably his greatest miracle. Through Lazarus many came to Yeshua, and by Yeshua, Lazarus was redeemed.

It's good to see a man who still has child like faith. I'm around 40 worked all my life for a good life and I never had any thing work out. It's hard to have faith in God when you lost all faith in life.

I love this man with all my heart. One of the funniest, sweetest, most talented people on the planet. And I'm so glad he's not my next door neighbor. Lol!
🤣😅🤣😅🤣😅🤣😅🤣😅

👍👍👍👍👍 Thumbs up because we are all thumbody in God’s eyes!!! God bless you, Mark!!! 🤠

Tim Hawkins, Mark, Jeff Allen and Bob Smiley need to tour together, You would need to have your depends on. They have similar styles, but much different delivery.

Anthony Burger really anazed me. The way he just picked up on "movin on up" was astonishing!
I am an "ear" musician and still have to search the keyboard in order to get the right key!
He overcame a massive burn received from a floor furnace in his very early childhood.
May he rest in peace and his memory is precious to me.
An interview with him tellingvhus story is right here on YouTube, as is the one if his death called, "Anthony's Angel." He died during a Gaither cruise performance

August 25th 2019 and we have all these white people and their listen to people singing gospel and all kinds of things that praise God and yet not one of them is actors we'll talk about white genocide in South Africa for white Christians to finance millions of refugees into America and make them our neighbors so the Democratic Party can have American volts cheaply and Christianity will be wiped off the face of America and you'll be learning Islam and you won't have the guns anymore cuz that's going to be gone but then all these religious fake people will not lift a finger and this audience on the platform about white babies being gang raped by black adult males boys being sodomized 15 times have his balls cut off and then start on his six or seven year old sister and rape her 45 times she dies on and on and no white Christians will lift a finger because these religious leaders they believe in moloch they're all for white people right out fault white people are at fault and everything you people you're going to go to hell because your religion is false your pastors your religious leaders the mega churches you're all false

Obviously gay, this is really sad. He has to stay closeted because of the loving god that would banish him to hell for being his true self.

I've had exactly that plunger experience where you find out you need one, but it's nowhere to be found and you have to go ask the home owner where they keep it and it turns out they have three bathrooms but only one plunger that they move around as needed.

That's just being way too optimistic in my opinion. When the flood waters start to rise and you suddenly realize, "It may feel nice on the toes, but people shouldn't put shag carpet in bathrooms." then that nice carpet isn't nice anymore.

For the same reason, I don't recommend those soft, furry, fluffy commode seat covers.

I believe mark is gay, it I do not necessarily believe he is a sinner. We all have thoughts and desires and he is 100% feminine with his mannerisms, and also his comedy! Many me have made fun of Home Depot, he makes the joke about decorating and buying a jacuzzi!! That is the most feminine thing he could’ve said!! BUT like I said he is proof that just because we have desires or are a certain way(short tempered, wanting drugs, homosexual thoughts, etc..) that it is possible to overcome and still work for gods glory!!

His accent is semi southern sounding almost like jeff foxworthy and the rest of the blue collar comedy tour guys e.g. larry the cable guy, bill engvall, ron white jeff's most likely my favorite of all the guys although ron (the drinker has been at different times..!?!?!? at times

Mark you better not to make fun of Jesus like that 'I would like to know if He had a girlfriend' this line strike my heart 😔😔

My aunt goes to church 3 times a week. For over 30 years. . She doesn't cuss or drink. She is liar greedy and she is a thief! I would rather drink and cuss …. this is to name below me Crys

“We landed a probe on Mars to look for intelligent life, why can’t we land that thing on Capital Hill😊?” wado,Ann Benson.

to lowry only:
never heard of you, alive?
felt so duped watching a clip title 'i don't have enough faith to be an atheist.'
because i think you're right. i'm atheist and i have a lot of faith in my conviction.
but when i heard your argument, i was so disappointed.
the thing is, i don't even use watch to tell time anymore, i use my phone
you see, unlike you, i evolve… i don't use obsolete stuff like say… religion
keep shaking those watch parts baby, and watch where you're going… don't fall off the edge of the earth now.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Prelude to Infinity War

Before creation itself, there existed six singularities of immense power. When the universe exploded into being, their remnants were forged into concentrated ingots possibly by the Cosmic Entities Infinity, Entropy, Eternity and Death. Over time, the infinity stones representing Space, Mind, Reality, Power, Soul and Time became scattered across the …
