246- One World 3: Judaism as Archetype

“How well do you know Judaism?”

That’s a loaded question, but it’s important if we are to gain the trajectory of understanding that this series will offer. If your answer caused you to think about traditions, holidays, and Kosher religious practices, then my point is already made.

In today’s podcast and post we continue with our One World series and focus upon Judaism as the archetype of religion. Can our world ever get along and be at peace if each religion is competing with each other? Is the answer to homogenize them all together or to cherry pick those parts we prefer? NO. Join me now as we pull back to see beyond everything and what it means to be a child of Abraham.

244- One World 2-Science, Data and the search for Truth

“How much FAITH do you put in science?”

If you are like most people, the answer is: “a lot.” But is science worthy of this kind of loyalty and trust? In today’s podcast and post, we continue part 2 of our “One World” series where we take a critical look at science.

Join me now as we deconstruct the religion of science and expose why facts and data don’t mean that much to our world anymore. Despite all the good that science provides, we will see beyond its truth claims and examine precisely why science cannot lead our troubled world into peace.

240- Perfect Imperfection

“Do you think you’ve known enough suffering? Maybe not.

As I produce this podcast, the pandemic is thrusting our world into countless forms of suffering. In Columbia, Brazil and Mexico, the starvation has already gone beyond the miles of food lines that Americans get to drive up to. We all want to turn our face from suffering, but when we do, we miss something transformative.

In today’s podcast and post I’m going to offer a definition of suffering that most will reject. Join me now as we see beyond the circumstances that have thrust pain upon us and stare deeply into that which can transform our world.

229- 5 Ways to Avoid Squandering this Pandemic

“If you could turn this pandemic into something positive, would you?”

Better yet, would you even know how? As the world soberly looks at the math behind this Global Pandemic, the entire planet is moving toward a complete shut-down of life as we know it. In today’s podcast and post I will offer 5 considerations that have the potential of infusing the world with a good infection.

Join me now as we all collectively navigate our quarantines and  social distances, as I invite us all to turn our homes lives into a sacred time of reflection which has the power to transform our lives and re-create the world.

223- The Fifteenth

“According to religion, who gets access to God?”

This is an interesting question which exposes our preconceived ideas about proximity, worthiness, and morality. In today’s podcast and post we continue or ongoing series of the Psalm’s Greatest Hits as we consider the Fifteenth Psalm.

Join me now as we take some cleansing breaths and reflect upon the words of David and how they trigger us. We will look between the lines of the pages and see beyond everything into the motivation of love and how it changes all things.

221-When the Body Won’t Heal

Have you ever pleaded with God for bodily healing and your prayer went unanswered?”

Nothing produces more unbelief than unanswered prayers, especially those for bodily healing. The disposition of the heart which arises from unbelief turns us into the Veruca Salt which demands her father grant her every request immediately. 

In today’s podcast and post, I will explain why if we are asking for bodily healing, why it may not come right away. Staying in faith is not a cop-out, but the only way to gain the necessary precondition for transformative healing.

Join me now as we see beyond what we thought was the unanswered prayer.

220-Healing our Bodies through Faith

“Is it reasonable to expect healing when science has concluded that healing is not possible?

In today’s post and podcast, we go a bit deeper into our exploration of healing, by examining the role of faith in healing our bodies. Quantum science has forced the rewriting of empirical frameworks for understanding our world and moves us incrementally closer to the world depicted in sacred texts.

Join me now as I show the similarities between quantum entanglement and prayer, and take us beyond everything into their single biggest difference. That difference, may just be the reason why faith changes everything, even science.

219-Healing Our Bodies through Science

“Is the healing of our bodies limited to physical preconditions?”

In today’s post and podcast we continue our series on healing as we see our world in its desperate need of healing. People look to science as the final authority on healing our bodies, but is there more to the story? I think so.

Join me now as we see beyond the physical preconditions of healing and open up a wider perspective that will allow us to integrate our fragmented understanding into a healing that goes beyond our bodies.

218-Healing Our Demons

“Do you believe in demons? After this podcast, you might. You’ll also know what to do with them.”

In today’s podcast and post we continue our series on healing as we look closer at the idiom of “exercising our demons.” What does this actually mean and is there anything we can do about it?

Join me now as we see beyond Ghost Hunters, and examine the real “underworld” that exists just beneath the surface of our thoughts.

217-Do You Want to be Healed?

Are you self-aware enough to recognize those areas of your life where you need healing?”

Believe it or not, most of us aren’t. The vast majority of people believe healing is limited to the physical body as it relates to injury or illness. As such, healing is almost entirely deferred to medical professionals.

In this podcast and post we begin a series where I introduce a new framework for healing. All suffering and captivity within our lives are like festering wounds that have never received the proper care.

Join me now as we see beyond our suffering and lay hold of the healing that awaits every soul who diligently seeks for the truth.
