We get upset when God tests us, but this week I remember that Jesus the Christ himself was tested by God before he began his public ministry. This testing is necessary, so listen why it is necessary.
What is your worldview? Your worldview is critical because it colors everything you look at and it determines what you see and what you can't see. Which worldview do you have?
I explain God's Great Christ Project which you have never heard about, along with: how to forgive your father, what is salvation according to the Buddha, the prevalence of contention in Christianity, and lastly a salvation that transforms people as opposed to simply giving them a ticket to Heaven.
I explain how to do Centering Prayer, which I've been doing for about 30 years. This practice has revolutionized my walk with God. I pray that it will help you too.
St. Augustine and the anonymous author of the classic 14th Century devotional book, "The Cloud of Unknowing" both recommend a type of prayer and intimacy with God which doesn't involve using words or thoughts. Listen as I discuss this revolutionary and life changing way to relate to God.
I begin working through the Dhammapada, a Buddhist scripture and compare and contrast it with my faith, which is Christianity. The ethical teachings are almost shockingly identical.
