SORT BY Relevancy
In THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES, nationally renowned journalist, Senior Writer for the Weekly Standard and author Jonathan Last leads an all-star team of 18 conservative writers in a hilarious, insightful, and sanctimony-free remix of the Book of Virtues. THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour (or three) later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it. This collection of 18 original essays—by such writers as P.J. O’Rourke, Christopher Buckley, Jonah Goldberg, and Andrew Ferguson—aims at rediscovering the virtuous life in an era of momentous change.
As Jonathan Last argues—the problem today isn’t that we “no longer live in an age concerned with virtue. The problem is that we have organized ourselves around the wrong virtues.” He maintains that we’re now incorrectly structuring society around “seven modern virtues” (Freedom, Convenience, Progress, Equality, Authenticity, Health, and Nonjudmentalism) instead of the “seven cardinal virtues”.
Virtues are universal and recognized by all cultures as basic qualities necessary for our well-being and happiness>
We know if we forgive someone then we may not be as angry and uptight, and we know it takes courage to accomplish great things. So why then, if we know what to do, do we still stay stuck? Because we have not yet consciously and boldly applied a virtue to a given situation so as to alter its outcome, from what has always been to what can be.

In Episode 52 of Stark Naked Radio, coming to you from Irvine, California in the heart of Orange County, Dr. Dayne Grove gets into the details of Vitamin C.

You might wonder, “What is the connection between spiritual fruit and fruit flies and gnats?” Well, glad you asked. Fruit flies and gnats gather around fruit that is overly ripe; fruit that should have been used, but instead was left to spoil or rot. The same is true for spiritual fruit. When you are not using the virtues of the “Fruit of the Spirit” (spiritual fruit), you begin to get plagued by the small nuisances in life. Things that should not bother you become enormous nuisances. Things that if you were living and nurturing spiritual fruit that would be easily ignored, now begin to be extremely bothersome to you and seem to multiply, come out of nowhere, and spontaneously generate.
When these nuisances seem to be getting the best of you, rest assured this is happening because you are not using the spiritual fruit of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control that God has given you through the Holy Spirit. Your spiritual fruit is spoiling on the tree or vine. So, pray to God for a new start and begin to use your spiritual fruit, and those nuisances or symbolically, those fruit flies and gnats, will begin to disappear out of your life because they won’t have anything to feed on.
The adding of virtuous habits and the elimination of, well, not so good habits, has been, is now and will continue to be a hot topic for many people. The adoption of virtues moves us toward eliminating "The Integrity Gap" that exists for most of us.
Moving through the literature on this topic yields some very interesting strategies given by some very credible authors. I have no intention of even attempting to discredit the two authors I will discuss namely, Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Maslow for I met (the writings of) these two men at times of need. each man took me to a higher place for which I was very grateful. Their writings and strategies, however, left me with questions and a lack of fulillment; I knew there was something better; something more.
My invitation to you is to join me in this message; it's my journey and the journey of many others. Perhaps this will save you some time in your path to a more contented, fulfilled life. The journey isn't supposed to be hard; in fact, it's a joyous one. Let's look at Benjamin franklin and Abraham Maslow to get some direction.
Emmy-award-winning journalist Nava has produced a collection of poems, old sayings, personal stories, folktales and short quotations drawn from an eclectic array of sources that is guaranteed to be a constant resource for parents who wish to instruct their children in traditional virtues. ("Blood is inherited," Nava's mother told her, "but virtue is acquired.") Divided into chapters with titles such as Responsibility, Respect, Hard Work, Faith, Courage, Justice and Chastity, each section features a host of historical figures, contemporary writers, directors, producers, political figures, artists, actors and entrepreneurs--a veritable who's who of international Latinos that demonstrates the immense influence of this group on American culture.
Laced through it all is Nava's commentary on her own life, which, coming as it does from a highly successful journalist and businesswoman (she owns the Ponce-Niacasio Broadcasting Co.), is worth consideration. Despite a tendency to rely on celebrity status as intrinsic proof of virtue, Nava pulls off her lessons of Latino life with charm and old-fashioned grace.
