175- The Drawer of Naughtiness

 

“How successful have you been at eradicating sin from your life?”

I know that’s a loaded question but my hope is that you will answer it honestly and recognize that while some sins may cease or diminish, there are still a host of sins in our lives that simply won’t go away. What are we to do with those?

In today’s post and podcast we continue our exploration of Galatians when Paul opens up what I call the junk drawer of naughtiness. His list of interpersonal transgressions is very long and it’s likely some of your besetting sins are on it. Join me now as we learn to see beyond the battle of flesh and the spirit and gain a new way to understand and live with these two powerful forces within us.

173- Shadow: Interplay with Light

 

“Are you aware of your shadow self? Do you understand your dark side?”

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our study of Galatians and explore how internal freedom is entangled with the captivity of our flesh. In other words there is a constant dance between shadow and light, flesh and spirit.

Join me now as we learn about our dark side, and free ourselves from the old binary framework of good versus evil. We’ll explore the only possible reason our shadow can exist in the first place and why that allows us to see beyond everything.

94- Body and Soul

 

 

Last week I proved the existence of non-physical reality. In this weeks post and podcast we go deeper by examining the interplay between the physical (body) and the non-physical (soul) by looking at our bodies. We err when our dualistic mind forces us to pick whether we are a body without a soul or a soul trapped in a body. We are a hybridization of both limitless spirit within a limited body and the design is interdependence.  The limitations of our body are purposed to develop our soul and the soul shapes the works of the body. Unfortunately, religion turns this into behavior modification or sin management. Nonetheless, there remains an icon for us in the Christian story to view ultimate humanity. The interplay between body and soul is both the cause of all suffering and the healing of the world. What will it be for you?
