Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I'm not okay and you're not okay. We're in serious trouble. And yet the life that we are promised in Christ should be one of spiritual maturity and increasing holiness. We should be light and salt to a dark and flavourless world. We should be brimful of the fruit of the Spirit. So, why the yawning chasm between what we are and what we should be? When around half of marriages fail, when there are massive problems with addiction, when our leaders are moral failures, when there is war and world famine, who can we blame? Only ourselves, says Dallas Willard. We live from the heart - the spiritual place within us from which outlook, choices and actions have been formed by a world away from God. Now it must be transformed. With piercing cultural analysis Dallas Willard shows how the spirit of the age has blinded Christian people to the truth of their moral responsibilities. He presents a radical challenge to be transformed to the likeness of Christ in every dimension of life - thought, emotion, character, soul and body. Drawing on biblical and practical resources he explores the spiritual disciplines that are crucial if, by the grace of God, we hope to acquire renovated hearts.

Download or read book Practical Christianity written by A.W Pink and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2015-11-29 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Arthur W. Pink has become known as a masterful expositor of the Word of God. Both his expository works and some of his doctrinal works have long been in print. His deep concern for experimental Christianity and the practical Christian life, however, is not so well known. Yet he wrote many short series and single articles on what Scripture has to say about the inner man. And in writing these articles Pink expounded the Scriptures as penetratingly as he did in his expository and doctrinal writings. His practical Christianity, then, is not a collection of pious thoughts on the Christian life or a simple outline of Scripture, but a full treatment of the subject.
Download or read book The Religion of God Divine Love written by His Divine Eminence Ra Gohar Shahi and published by BalboaPress. This book was released on 2012-05-17 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The excerpts from the book for quick awareness: 1. Those who love God but do not practise a religion are better than you if you follow a religion and yet are deprived of God’s love. 2. Love relates to the heart. The word, “Allah,” when synchronised within heartbeats, reaches all veins and arteries through the blood and revives the souls. Then the souls, engulfed by God’s name, “Allah,” enter God’s love. 3. All names given to God in all languages are worthy of respect. However, God’s original name is “Allah,” which is a word from the Suryani language. The creatures of empyrean speak this language. The angels call upon God with the name of “Allah.” “Allah” is attached with the faith declaration motto of every prophet. 4. Any person who, with all the sincerity of heart, is in search for God, on land or in the sea, is worthy of respect. 5. Many Adams were sent in different regions of the world simultaneously. All Adams were moulded from the clay in this world, for except the last Adam who was moulded from the clay in paradise, and is buried in the Arab region. The angels did not prostrate to any other Adam for except Adam Safi Allah. And Iblis (the Devil) developed enmity for the progeny of Adam Safi Allah only. 6. There are seven different sub-spirits in the human skeleton, and each relates to a different realm, a different paradise, and different functions in the human body. If these sub-spirits are empowered with God’s light (Noor), they may appear in human form in many places simultaneously. They may reach the esoteric gatherings of the saints and the prophets, speak with God, and even see God in person also. 7. There are two different types of religions for all humans: the religion for the body, which expires when the body does, and the religion for the soul, which existed even in the primordial time—that is God’s love. And only this religion elevates humans. 8. Ishq (Rapturous Love) of Allah is above all other religions, and seeing Allah is above all forms of worship. 9. Information on how human beings, animals, plants, and stones were brought into existence, and why something is prohibited or permissible. 10. Who pre-existed the Amr Kun (the command “Be”) of the souls and the angels? Which dog will enter the paradise in form of Qatmir? The souls of which individuals had already affirmed the declaration of faith in the primordial time? The secret of which man is not mentioned in this book?

Download or read book Image Sense Infinities and Everyday Life written by Michael Eigen and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-05-08 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Image and sensing have been underrated in Western thought but have come into their own since the Romantic movement and have always been valued by poets and mystics. Images come in all shapes and sizes and give expression to our felt sense of life. We say we are made in the image of God, yet God has no image. What kind of image do we mean? An impalpable image carrying impalpable sense? An ineffable sense permeates and takes us beyond the five senses, creating infinities within everyday life. Some people report experiencing colour and sound when they write or hear words. Sensing mediates the feel of life, often giving birth to image. In this compelling book, the author leads us through an array of images and sensing in many dimensions of experience, beginning with a sense of being born all through life, psychosis, mystical moments, the body, the pregnancy of "no", shame, his session with Andre Green, and his thoughts related to James Grotstein, Wilfred Bion, and Marion Milner.

Download or read book The Heart of Spiritual Warfare written by Rev. Darrin Lauder and published by Author House. This book was released on 2011-02-16 with total page 238 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The subject of Spiritual Warfare must become common place if unsuspecting souls are to avoid major disaster. Presently and at best this subject is designated peripheral and perhaps trivial and at worst it is hardly mentioned or dismissed as irrelevant. This book presents a biblical view of this important subject with the thesis and conclusion that it deserves greater prominence in the life of every living soul. This is because there are other crucial teachings tied so intricately to what affects all people such as those of faith, apostasy and perseverance. While one could argue faith and apostasy are only matters for those who are religious, everyone recognizes the need to persevere through life. And people of faith realize the need to endure to attain life. The emphasis of this author and those who have gone before him see good cause to review this topic of Spiritual Warfare and consider carefully whether it belongs in a daily practical sense with the essentials of the Christian faith. Essentials have always been recognized as beliefs that affect ones salvation or eternal well-being. The Bible from beginning to end addresses a people who must battle to receive a portion and inheritance promised by God. It is to those whom He calls to Himself and who show themselves to be His chosen people that He designates `overcomers'. The Scripture breaks down the whole of the human race into two major groups of people variously defined. The seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent are the children of God and those of the devil. The former are attacked by the latter and their only means of true spiritual defense is to trust the Lord and live out the will of God. This activity not only sifts and seals the destiny of those in the respective categories previously stated but this warfare shapes and distinguishes those worthy of a heavenly inheritance and an everlasting reward. The author endeavors to present a compelling case that Spiritual Warfare is intricately tied to the soul's eternal destiny and thus deserves greater ascendancy in Christian teaching. He claims that because of its practical influence towards integrity and eternal salvation or by its neglect to hypocrisy and Hell's unending fire. Character matters and what one believes about eternity, spiritual battles and the devil's part in the world pertaining to those things will find this book a true help.

Download or read book Good Vs Evil Overcoming Degradation Through the Love and Brilliance of God Book Two Seeking to Duplicate the Heart Courage and Genius of the Lord Jesus Christ written by Jerry Davis and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2012-08-10 with total page 406 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Book One may appear to be a little scary to read because it takes you into evil and the destruction of lives. Far too many people wont begin to take a look. What mankind doesnt recognize from afar is that he has been in agreement with many of the lies being perpetuated, through the deceitfulness of evil and his lack a awareness. He managed to get himself in, and now he must fully participate in getting himself out. The good news is Book Two is providing the help necessary to bring you out. Its giving you the map, and the access to understanding that which will help to set yourself free. You will find you cannot do all of it alone. The life of Jesus Christ is being utilized in Book Two as our ultimate leader, teacher, and guide. You will want to understand the heart, courage and genius which was developed Him from living His life in faith. The attributes of Jesus can and should be studied and duplicated. His teachings are aptly quoted to illustrate various results of life; and provide oppositions of thought to counter the mechanics of evil being levied against us through the minds of the self. Jesus gave us His teachings, examples and demonstrations over two thousand years ago. Mankind has made progress since then in maintaining his sanity and integrity, but our progress has not proven, to me, to be enough. Look closely at people and their problems and you will see that far too many people are living with way too much pain and fear. And we all hear stories of good religious people who experience a fall as they become subject to sinning. Yes, we are all sinners but much of the sinning we do is because we do not greatly understand! The mechanics of evil and the thousands of approaches Satan has to engage a man, are often overwhelming! I look at our world today and can see the many compulsions at work in the minds of men in mass, and Im genuinely concerned. Man doesnt begin to understand the size, complexity, and scope of all that he is up against in our world as it is. Weve all heard of Satan, and most of us will acknowledge he is there to damage our life, but generally thats as far as our knowledge of him goes. It is our ignorance of him that make us most vulnerable. When we dont recognize the decisions we make are in league with supporting his working mechanics in pain, then we dont have much of a chance. We need to become enlightened in order to be protective of our souls, which is the basis and design of book number three. Book Two has two agendas which I continue to present throughout. I continue to show the reader the ongoing dilemmas he has to contend with through the cunning and deceit of evil in full cooperation with the six major steps of the longest and greatest lie ever told. Various aspects of the lie are a part of each one of us, and the lies will literally have to be removed. This will take a lot of time and hard work. While you will be steadily at work getting to the truth, I will continue to show the you the things you will need to actively involve yourself in, in order to bring yourself out. There are no easy solutions, and there is little gain to be made without the accommodation of some pain. But the pain will be tolerable and the end will remain as a blessing in your sights! You have the Trinity of God working within you through your deep and deliberate breathing. You have scriptures of truth to be studied at your disposal, and you will have the blessings of your memorized prayer. You have the love, faith and forgiveness of God working within your essence of being. You will be learning to let go and trust in God. The more you learn to love them as the Trinity, the more you will grow in faith. And as Jesus told us, It is from faith, God will make us well.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I would quit this job, travel to some exotic place, and I certainly would tell those closest to me just how important they are to me. Words like these are echoed by so many people each and every day, and with each day we have to decide what to do with the time we have left. Inside of each person is a destiny, a calling, a purpose, and yet we spend day after day either running from that calling, ignoring our passion, or otherwise just taking up space. If Tomorrow Never Comes exposes the pit falls we experience in life, and brings answers to some of lifes most basic questions: Why am I here, and why now? Life is a journey of discovery, and within each discovery is an answer that will lead you to a life full of adventure, a life full of peace and joy, and ultimately fulfillment as you discover the destiny that resides in you.

After a terrible war in which numerous people lost their life, he embraced Buddhism, forswearing all wars of attack.
