SORT BY Relevancy
This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we continue our conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.
It seems every religious group has its fundamentalists. So, are religious people particularly prone to fundamentalism? Or, is it just part of some people’s personality? And how about religion and politics? Is there a line between faith and political involvement? Can we honor both our religious values and our responsibilities as a member of a diverse nation, at the same time?
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. We’ll get into these difficult issues of fundamentalism and religion and politics from a faith perspective with the students. Their questions, and our conversation with them is the content of this program.

What is a prophet? What is prophetic the function? It is this? God takes hold of a vessel God takes him through a deep history, breaking, undoin,g disillusioning, revolutionizing the whole mentality, so that things which were held fiercely, assertively, are no longer so held. There is a pliableness, adjustableness, teachableness. Why because of the griding and breaking. Everything that was merely objective as to the work of God, as to Divine truth, as to orthodoxy or fundamentalism; all that was held so strongly, in an objective, legalistic way as to what is right and wrong in methods it is all dealt with, all broken.

Hosted by dark-skinned free-thinker Vincent E Brown, this show discusses a myriad of issues from the political, moral, and religious. Of course, every now and then a bit of controversy is liable to show up at any time, so tune in and listen to a host who is black, Christian, and conservative.
There are those on the Left that would argue that Christians fundamentalists and Muslim extremists are one and the same. Are they? I will discuss this and other issues on today's show.
Thursday June 26, 2014 Jean Maurie and Maggie Lukowski are excited to have Reenee Cummins back with us.
In June of 2012 ReeNee Cummins got a big “what if” idea. What if a bunch of tarot readers got together at the same time and read about a topic that affects all humanity? The result was the Blogtalk Radio show, U-Predict. As ReeNee comes up on the second anniversary of the show, she comes on to discuss the synchronicities that are the show’s trademark, and how they inspire us to make a better world.
Despite her fascination and talent in working with and in the paranormal, her day job for 30 years was being involved in all sorts of roles and titles working on and launching the Space Shuttle.
With the fading away of the New Age in the 1990’s (due to hucksters and charlatans) and the rise of Fundamentalism, claiming to have psychic abilities put one at risk of ridicule. However, much research was completed in the 1960’s on the entire spectrum of abilities. Some experiments were better controlled than others. For the most part the scientific world could not and did hot share results with each other. Enter the age of social media and meta-data. Come to find out the data on PSI experiments did yield positive data. On top of that, many organizations are still conducting experiments and getting positive results. PSI researcher, sensitive, and psychic ReeNee Cummins will bring us up to date on this fascinating topic.
Today we have a special show examining the issue of Christian Fundamentalism and its Christian Supremacist tendencies. Using the two terrorist attacks in Norway over last weekend as a backdrop - attacks to which a Christian Fundamentalist Supremacist has confessed, while calling for a civil war in Europe to end multiculturalsm and defeat Islam - we will look at precisely why alleged "pastors" like John Hagee and politicians like Rick Perry of Texas are a danger not just to America, but to the world. We'll also discuss how it is not possible to be authentically religious or .spiritual while at the same time seeking to destroy anything or anybody.
In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on Pentecost and its significance in the Catholic Church. Pentecost is the day the Catholic Church was "born." The Church began her public ministry after the Holy Spirit descended as tongues of fire upon the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Apostles giving them the gifts, in particular the gift of tongues.
This day is extremely important for all Catholics. Many Protestant sects also take into account the importance of this event, especially Pentecostals and Evangelicals who often imitate the "gift of tongues." Sacerdotus speaks on this gift and describes what it really is and what it is not. He also explains what the gifts of the Holy Spirit are and the fruits they bring about.
Jost van Dyke refers to himself as a Multidimensional Renaissance NuMan. This personal, polymath identity is exemplified by three pivotal events occurring prenatally and at an early age that set in motion an underpinning, life-path dynamic.
Prior to Jost's birth, his parents had a “close encounter”. The experience was quite extraordinary for two people raised and living at the time in rural North Florida amidst Deep South fundamentalism of the 1950s.
Jost was born Easter morning, at the break of dawn with a natal sun conjunct an 11:11 Aries-Libra AC/DC axis. At the age of five, Jost had a numinous out of body experience (OBE), an angelic visitation, that set a precedence for recurring transdimensional and extraterrestrial events that continue to make a significant impact on his life.
In addition to being an accomplished concert pianist, Jost has pursued many other professional, creative venues---a monthly food columnist, chef, music editor, nationally exhibited fine art photographer, Pilates instructor and intuitive tarot-astrologer, to name a few.
Lectures, book interviews and thought provoking programming that goes beyond the traditional Sunday media religious and sports extravaganzas.
Program Summary: 18 May 2014
The discussion will be joined at the bottom of the first hour with Frank Schaeffer, New York Times best-selling author of Keeping Faith about his just released book, "Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God."
From his web site "about" Frank:
Frank is a blogger on Huffington Post and Patheos. He was one of the first Huff Post bloggers and has a significant online platform worldwide. His three semi-biographical novels about growing up in a fundamentalist mission: Portofino, Zermatt and Saving Grandma have a worldwide following and have been translated into nine languages. Pulitzer prize winner and novelist Jane Smiley writing in the Washington Post says this of Frank’s books Crazy For God and Sex, Mom and God: “Schaeffer’s memoirs have a way of winning a reader's friendship...Schaeffer is a good memoirist, smart and often laugh-out-loud funny...Frank seems to have been born irreverent, but his memoirs have a serious purpose, and that is to expose the insanity and the corruption of what has become a powerful and frightening force in American politics... Frank has been straightforward and entertaining in his campaign to right the political wrongs he regrets committing in the 1970s and '80s...As someone who has made redemption his work, he has, in fact, shown amazing grace.”
The unlearnable lesson of the UCSB killings: Weapons are the instrument and not the cause; The GOP has a generic-ballot lead, and undecided voters are sympathetic - in short, the Big Red Tsunami is on its way. But without another Ronald Reagan, can conservatism ever be resurrected? Or are we doomed to an Obamadency-for-life of incessant talk and promiscuous promises?; And can Islamic Fundamentalism evolve into much needed apostasy? Of course not, which is why there's no rationale for collaboration or concessions, and every reason to mercilessly stamp it out.
Sacerdotus in this episode offers an academic critique of Protestantism which originates from former Augustinian priest, Martin Luther. He explains where this heresy came from and how its theological ideas are flawed compared to Biblical sources, Traditional sources and historical ones as well. Protestantism is a collection of many sects with each claiming to be the "one true" church of Christ. Sacerdotus explains how these claims are ficticious and dishonest by explaining how the one truth Church of Christ only resides in the Catholic Church headed by the Vicar of Christ, the Pope.

On this very special edition of Carson's Corner, as part of The Commons Project Network dot com, we welcome back our old friend Frank Schaeffer to Carson's Corner. Frank's new book, WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace, is already sending shockwaves throughout the media landscape. Below is a taste of what critics are saying:
“Frank Schaeffer always writes well, but Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God is extraordinary. Somewhere between the sterile, absolute, and empty formulae of reductionist, totalitarian science and the earnest, hostile, excessively certain make-believe of religious fundamentalism, there is a beautiful place. There is room in this place for honesty. For tenderness. For fury. For wonder. For hope. For mistakes. For paradox. For grace. This book is written from that in-between place. It will help you get there too, if you're interested in finding it.”—Brian D. McLaren author/speaker/activist
“A delight and charmer of a read—deft insights, burnished gold probes, arrow hit bull’s-eye again and again.” —Ron Dart (Thomas Merton Society of Canada)
Afterwards, Bob will discuss some concepts from the latest book he read, The Case for Socialism by Alan Maas.
