Anthony reiterated, “I’m not anybody special, and I’m certainly not here to preach to anybody, but just from coming from somebody who was just really in a f***ed up place—I use that word with discretion—but in this case, it describes where I was.”
“I just decided right then and there that I know I can’t do this anymore,” he continued. “I just told God, ‘Just let me do it. Like and I’ll give all this sh*t up. I’ll give up the weed and I’ll quit getting drunk and I’ll quit being so angry about things.’” Anthony told God, “I’ll start over again and I’ll make him the focus and not me.”
Anthony said, “I feel like God’s working inadvertently through certain people to get his point across.”
Although the foul-mouthed country singer was adamant about not preaching, he expressed that everyone worships something, whether they believe in God or not.
Anthony is striving to make God his idol now. He said, “Why not try to make that my idol? Make God and the concept of what it is that he wants done on this earth my idol versus anything else. We all serve some master, whether we realize it or not. So why not let it be the master that is above all?”
Grabbing his Bible, Anthony shared that he has been focused on reading Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the book of Luke for guidance. Opening the Bible up, Anthony read Proverbs 4:20-27:
My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
When Anthony finished reading it Rogan quickly responded with, “That’s pretty f***ing profound.”
“But the whole book of Proverbs is like that,” Anthony said. “Like it’s not preachy. It’s not what you think…It’s like good guidance that you would want a father to give to his son.”
