    The Key to Rescuing the World From Terrorism & Fundamentalism, Revelation, Pt. 4

    in Entertainment

    "Canaan Land," a new feature dramatic film telling a contemporary story of an Elmer Gantryish evangelist, is in preproduction. Written by Richard Rossi, the film has stirred up controversy, before a single frame of film has been shot. Rossi performed the role of Gantry on stage, and on screen he played the real life character David Hutton who inspired the fictional Gantry.  The film shows how fundamentalism is at the root of many of the problems in our world, including terrorism, war, & abuse of the planet.


    On the morning after a terrorist attack on Paris, Richard continues his series on the Book of Revelation, starting into Rev. chapter 3 sharing the theme of his new film "Canaan Land," how to tell true from false in church life and religion.  He covers signs of sick spiritual leaders & religion such as personality cults, legalism, making a business of religion, & losing sight of Christ's power in you.


    "Looking back on my years as a healing evangelist, I never did anything fraudulent to fake healings," Rossi said.  "I prayed for God to heal people, & refused to report healings without medical verification.  I was honest when people weren't healed and about the suffering we go through. However, my time in that world allowed me to see tricks some big names do.  They fake miracles, such as a gold dust stunt, a rigged trick they claim is angel feathers & gold flakes falling from Heaven. This hoax helped turn a church in California into the mecca for Pentecostals," Rossi said.  The film is not a remake of the 1960 film 'Elmer Gantry.' It's a new story based on Rossi's experiences in the world of fundamentalist Pentecostalism.

    Lesbian minister shifts from Fundamentalism to a religion that embraces all

    in Spirituality

    Rev. Cynthia Andrews-Looper (“Pastor Cindy” as she is affectionately called by those who love her), is a native of Greenville, SC. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Masters in Ministry from Southern Wesleyan University.


    In January 1996, after much soul-searching, she moved from Greenville, SC to Nashville, TN. In August of that same year, she started a Bible study that grew into what is today Holy Trinity Community Church, an open and affirming church of the United Church of Christ. 


    During the summer of 2014, while on a two month sabbatical, Pastor Cindy heard and followed God’s call to step down as Sr. Pastor of Holy Trinity and start a new ministry, Ignite Your Soul Now. She completed her ministry at Holy Trinity in October of this year. She is currently writing a book about her life story which she plans to title: TRUST GOD OR GO CRAZY, my journey from fundamentalist fear and insanity to hope and peace in Christ. This journey includes her call to ministry as a woman raised in a conservative Baptist church, the reconciliation of her faith and sexual orientation and amazing stories of God's faithfulness in the trying times of life.


    Pastor Cindy’s personal encounters with God’s love are the fire that fuels her ministry. She says, “One day, in my early thirties, I came face to face in spirit with a holy God and found an unconditional love that changed me deeply and inspired me to share this hope with others. It is that passion to share God’s love that keeps me alive spiritually. We serve a God whose arms are open to anyone who will walk into them. I want individuals to find God’s loving embrace through my ministry. God is the Source of all that is. God is the Source of all abundance and love. God’s desire is that we live withf absolute love and complete abundance, instead of fear and lack. My message is one of hope, love and light.

    The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    in Radio

    On Thursday January 14th, 2016 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a commentary on and a reading of the Rubaiyat a Sufi poem
    from medieval Persia by the mystic and astronomer Omar Khayyam
    translated by Edward Fitzgerald and published in 1859. The Rubaiyat is
    quintessentially romantic in style and content. It is said to reflect
    the ancient cyrenaic hedonistic philosophy of Aristippus and extols a
    libertine lifestyle in preference to piety. When I was a teenager I
    needed to break away from Christian fundamentalism so I adopted the
    Rubaiyat as my alternative to the Bible. I memorized the entire poem so
    that I could quote seductive passages to Baptist virgins while drinking
    beer on the beach at sunset. Ah! Those were the days! Or as Omar would
    put it: "Alas that Spring should vanish with the rose, and youth's sweet
    scented manuscript should close, the nightingale that in the branches
    sang, ah whence and wither flown again who knows?" And so, if you yearn
    to know "What Omar's moving finger writ, " then tune in and we will
    inoculate you against excessive piety.

    Heartfelt Reflections on Co-Creation with Susan Larison Danz

    in Spirituality

    Susan Larison Danz, host of The Frontier Beyond Fear, spontaneously reflects on the concept of co-creation and honest, heartfelt questions about how the "Law of Attraction" is often conveyed in dysfunctional ways.  How can we begin to more meaningfully understand the omnipresence of God, Source, the Universe, Spirit, however we choose to label the Loving Creator of All that Is, the Greater "We" that encompasses us all?  What is the most compassionate, loving path?  Does everything in this world and this Multiverse require a logical, materialistic "science" to describe it?  Or do Miracles transcend our apparent need to materialistically categorize and explain?  How can any form of rigid "Fundamentalism" do very real harm to the true paths of our Hearts?  How does "Fundamentalism" arise in unexpected ways?  And how do we free ourselves from these unhealthy tendencies and focus on the Real and Enduring Power of Unconditional Love?

    RFB Radio ~ Canada's Growing Jihad Cancer

    in Politics Conservative

    The border that terrorists are most likely to cross into the United States is not the one with Mexico, but Canada. Ignore growing Muslim fundamentalism and extremism in Canada at your peril. That’s the message an increasingly vocal number of moderate and secular Canadian Muslims and counterterrorism experts want to send to the United States and the rest of the world.

    Mitchell Speaks with Swami Beyondananda & Wake Up Laughing!

    in Lifestyle

    Today’s guest is the venerable, Jewish-born, holy man from Brooklyn, who did his pranams & sadhana on the Borscht Belt, Steve Bhaerman, aka Swami Beyondananda. Steve is the author of Swami for Precedent: a 7-Step Plan to Heal the Body Politic & Cure Electile Dysfunction. Tune in today to hear the wit & wisdom of this out-of-the-box thinker. Steve is also the co-author with Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist, of the popularSpontaneous Evolution CD series.


    Purchase Swami’s books & CD’s here.


    Swami Beyondananda is the cosmic comic alter ego of writer, humorist, performer and uncommontator Steve Bhaerman. The Swami, whose favorite yoga pose is tongue-in-cheek, is the spokesperson for a new non-religion, FUNdamentalism (accent on “fun”). Says the Swami, “We are strictly non-dominational.”


    Steve was pursuing a career as a teacher and writer, when a funny thing happened. The name “Swami Beyondananda” flew into his head on day in 1979. As Steve tells it, “I got struck by enlightening during a brainstorm.”  


    Swamiji, aka Steve Bhaerman, was also on A Better World Rado


    Mitchell and Steve are old friends and did the first interview at the ISEEEM Conference in Boulder in 2008. A Better World & New Realities sponsored Swami Beyondananda in NYC at the MetaCenter in June, 2011.  www.wakeuplaughing.com

    Just Talking About The Things That Matter

    in Self Help

    Just Talking is a program that fosters thought.  It is educational through a process that was used by the great teacher Socrates.  Socrates believed that all human beings possessed total knowledge.  The good teacher was one who did not necessarilly fill the person with knowledge, but who knew how to draw out the knowledge the person already had and to foser the desire to know more.  Through stretching the mind, the imagination, the thought processes, Just Talking will lead you, our listener, to thinking about things in new ways.  It will stretch you to stretch yourself in order to grow and become a critical thinker.  Yet again, it is Just Talking.
