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.
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.
“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.
“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.
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.
“What can words do for the state of our world now?” Aren’t we beyond rhetoric and “Thoughts and prayers?”
Our world’s attention span is shortening. We have less interest and tolerance for big transforming ideas. Sound bites and instantaneous answers have eroded that part of us where big questions were once carried deep within our hearts. It’s the automotive equivalent of car makers producing beige minivans. Our thirst for practicality has displaced the drive that once inspired us.
In today’s podcast and post, I begin a series that for many is so played out and tired that few may even have the resolve to look deeper. Join me now as we begin to see beyond the sermon on the mount and recapture just how disruptive a big idea can be.
“How should the church respond to Paul’s letter to the Galatians?”
Today we conclude a thirteen-week study of the book of Galatians. Paul was clearly not reinventing another religion but preserving the integrity of the gospel message which not only liberates all people from institutional powers, but from frees us from the inside out. By ridding us of external and internal pressures that are trying to define and derail our lives, Paul is showing all people the path to personal freedom.
Join me now as we see beyond the lens of modern evangelical Christianity and see Paul’s message for what it really was, a free-flowing charter on how to live, and find your true self transparently grounded in God.
All religions have names for those they see as outside their religious tribe: Isalam calls non-Muslims Infidels, Christians call them unbelievers, Hinduism and Buddhism call them unenlightened, and Jews call them Gentile Sinners.
In today’s episode we will see how the Gospel freed religious and non-religious people from compliance to religious law and rules. This freedom caused them to be seen as living like sinners
Join me now as we explore what that means and why this is a central theme of Paul not only to the church in Galatia, but throughout the New Testament. It just might be that living as Paul describes “like a sinner “. is the ability to See Beyond Everything.
“Do you ever find yourself on the edge of despair?”
Has life not turned out like you thought it would? Did it not yield to you all that it seemed to promise while you were in your youth? If so, then you are not alone. In today’s podcast we take a look at the ebb and flow of life and take some advice from the wisest man that ever lived.
Join me now as we see beyond all of our effort and output and our climbing and striving, to discover what is really going on beyond it all.
