SORT BY Relevancy
Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Today's subject is more topical today then ever before: "Do you believe that America is still a Judeo-Christian country???" With an influx of refugees and immigrants (legal) from all countries and walks of life, is the "old time" religion still as important as it used to be??? Do you think that it is being replaced by Islam, Taoism, Shintoism, Buddhism or Atheism??? Call us with your opinions at 646-595-3275, and of course, the coffee is a must!
This is teaching sermon on the first seal based on Rev. 6:1-12. The first seal was loosed during the third church dispensation period (312-606). The first beast (living creature) symbolizes the Lion, which means the original word. The first horse rider (antichrist) was crowned at the Nicean Counsel (325 A.D.)
For this episode we have two candidates for Congress, followed by a discussion on Religion.
*Our first Congressional candidate is Dr. Brenda Cleary, running in a Democratic primary to replace do-nothing, conservative Tea Party Republican incumbent Rep. George Holding, who was recently caught asleep at the helm of a session of Congress during the Government Shutdown. She is a lifelong Democrat born in Indiana, having moved to North Carolina to head the North Carolina Center for Nursing 20 years ago. She moved with her family after obtaining her PhD in Geriatrics/Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Cleary is a breath of fresh air on the subject of health care & would bring her passion for the middle class, the working poor & the health of alll to DC.
You can listen to Dr. Cleary at the top of the 7pm Eastern hour: http://www.clearyforcongress.com/
*Our 2nd candidate is a passionate Pacific Northwest progressive who is running for Washington's 4th Congressional seat.
Gary Downing echoes Dr. Cleary's call to stand up for the Affordable Care Act. He poses a very pertinent question on his website:
"Is it wrong to make sure we have a healthy nation? The answer is no."
He also makes a point on immigration reform that there are many folks that have lived in this country as much as 60 years who do not have citizenship.
Gary Downing stands up for the working class, middle class and for the TRUE prosperity of our nation, working together to solve our problems.
Gary is a lifelong resident of the "Tri-Cities" area in Eastern Washington & you can hear him at the midpoint of the 7pm Eastern hour: http://www.downing4congress.com/

PART II...According to the AGENCY FOR CULTURAL AFFAIRS IN JAPAN 40.5% budhism, Shintoism 54%, Christianity 0.7%, other Religions 4.7% James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.
Our quote for today is from Yukitaka Yamamoto. He said, "To be fully alive is to have an aesthetic perception of life because a major part of the world's goodness lies in its often unspeakable beauty."
In this podcast, we are making our way through Garry R. Morgan's book, "Understanding World Religions in 15 Minutes a Day."
Our Understanding World Religions topic for today is, "Shinto"
Shinto, Japan's traditional religion, combines animistic aspects with ancestor veneration. There are shrines, priests, and corporate ceremonies, but much of Shinto is practiced in the home. It has no founder or starting date and has been practiced in Japan since before recorded history. It is so imbedded in the culture that it didn't even have a name until the arrival of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism from China in about AD 400, when it was called Shinto to distinguish it from the other systems. The name comes from the Chinese words "shen" and "tao," meaning "the way of the gods." The Japanese name, "kami no mi chi," means the same.
Although "kami" is usually rendered "gods," it has a much broader meaning in the Japanese mind. It refers not only to major deities like the Sun Goddess but also to lesser deities, spirits of ancestors, even a spiritual presence in trees or hills. Basically, anything possessing a form of spiritual power or influence fits into the category. The Japanese estimate there are eight million kami.
