    in Christianity

    We hear the word "receive" and we are all ears standing at attention. But the question is "Do you you have the capacity to receive?". Once you receive, do you know know the next step? It doesn't stop with you. God sends no one away except those that are full of themselves. Is this you? Have you been so full of the cares of this world that it has blocked you from receiving from God? This message will identify the areas of your life that need to be emptied out so you can have the capacity to receive from God. Receive the answers to experience the fullness of God in your life. Have a revelation of as you so freely receive, give as God has given His best to you.

    in Lifestyle


    50 years ago, going to the gym wasn't something the average person did. Now, it seems, everyone has a gym membership, or finds another way to exercise regularly. That’s because a revolution took place in the 1980s and 1990s: we all learned how important physical exercise was for our overall health and well-being.

    The "Cubic Capacity" Of The Dabar Yahweh Spoken Through Amos

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the cubic capacity of the Word of the Lord through Amos the nabi(prophet).,  In the northern kingdom during the time of Amos the Dabar Yahweh was lightly regarded. This unfortunate estate has come to pass in the post-western digital apocalypse too, the Word of The Lord has come to to be lightly regarded.  The Word of Yahweh transcends the binary fiction that has seized the west.  We are still within the Grace-aeon and God's salvation is mighty still.

    Self-Realization -- Finding Fulfillment & Accepting My Limitations

    in Spirituality

    Self-Realization is "the fulfillment of One's capacities."

    Isn't fulfillment what everyone is searching for?  But how do we achieve it?  Identify your strengths, your passions, your desires and your hopes.  That's easy enough, most of us can accomplish that.  The key to fulfillment is identifying what we are capable of and the ability to accept this Truth.

    What are my limitations?   This is the stumbling block for most of us.  The difficult task of setting boundaries, denial, and self-judgement.

    The awareness and acceptance of our capacity is the vital key to accomplishing self-realization.

    When the expectations we place on ourselves or when expectations placed on us by others exceed our capacity this leads to the struggle within ourself and the struggle with others.

    Have you ever heard the old saying, "you can't get blood from a turnip?"

    It's Truth.

    It is impossible to give what you don't have no matter how nobel your intention.

    Tonight's program offers us the opportunity to consider our own capacity and the demands or desires we have placed on those capacities.

    Self-realization is the avenue to true peace and fulfillment.

    Open Book: The Problem of Evil

    in Spirituality

    What place does an understanding of evil have in the life of a spiritual person? Does the way evil is portrayed in the media affect how we view it? Have we lost our capacity to be shocked by murder and crime because of the way evil is shown in books and movies? Most importantly, how do we restore our innocence — or is it too late? Lori and Alice take on the problem with evil, using Michael Knox Beran's book "Murder by Candlelight" as a reference and jumping-off point. With recent developments in the world like terrorism, the discussion of evil becomes more and more urgent. Don't miss this timely discussion with the hosts of your favorite on-the-air book club!
