318- Kierkegaard at Thanksgiving

If you could have Soren Kierkegaard over for Thanksgiving, what do you suppose he would say?”

In todays special Thanksgiving podcast and post, I use a little creative license to describe three levels of thanks which I have expunged from Kierkegaard’s work; “A Sickness Unto Death.” Strap on your existential thinking cap, because the turkey day conversation is going to the deep end.

Join me now as this post reveals just how far the modern mind has drifted in its ability to comprehend, yet alone appreciate, the thoughts of this philosopher. Perhaps it will perk your interest in rediscovering ideas for which the modern world has forgotten.

267-Subject Object Thanksgiving

Are you UNDER-THANKING this Thanksgiving?”

Join me now as we seebeyondthe Golden Rule and gain a glimpse of what it means to graduate beyond Subject-Object Thanksgiving.

“What does it mean to be thankful?”

In my contemplation recently, I have looked closely at the nature of gratitude and how we grow into grateful people. I have discovered at least three different levels of gratitude which I’ll share in this podcast.

Join me now as we see beyond our thanksgiving turkey into what makes us truly grateful people.

65- Food Network and Porn


What makes a sin sinful? Is it societal law? Is it religious law? Or is it something else? In this post and podcast I compare the biological impulses of sex and food to show just how biased and inconsistent religion has been with regard to the sins of sexual immorality and gluttony.  If you were taught like me that sin is that bad thing we do, then get ready for a real ride as I pose questions for which most pastors will not approve. What we will learn is a game changer in how we live our life and how we view morality.
