On the next four episodes of Apologetics Profile, we will be diving into some of the basics of other major world religions and provide you with a variety of resources to enable you to begin intelligent and thoughtful dialogue with your Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist neighbors. We'll also discuss some basic ways in which you can respond to atheists and agnostics who generally hold to a naturalistic worldview. Here on part one of our four-part series on Jesus and Christianity among other religions, we speak once more with New Testament historian and scholar Dr. Gary Habermas as he helps us identify what is unique among Christianity and why Jesus stands alone and unique among other worldviews and religions. Dr. Gary Habermas is a Distinguished Research Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy and chairman of the department of philosophy at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. He received a Doctor of Philosophy degree (1976) from Michigan State University in history and philosophy of religion with a thesis entitled "The resurrection of Jesus: a rational inquiry," and previously a master's degree (1973) from the University of Detroit in philosophical theology. He has specialized in cataloging and communicating trends among scholars in the field of historical Jesus and New Testament studies. In 1985, Habermas debated the then-atheist and evidentialist philosopher, Antony Flew, on the question of Jesus' resurrection as a literal and historical/physical event, before 3,000 attendees. Five philosophers and five professional debate judges judged the debate. Of the philosophers who judged on the content of the debate, four voted that Habermas won and the other was undecided.... [Before his death in 2010, Dr. Flew converted from atheism to theism.] In his memoir Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi [a former Muslim] relates how Habermas was influential in his conversion, and describes him as looking like "a mix between Santa Claus and an offensive lineman."GARY HABERMAS RESOURCES: Gary Habermas' personal research and publications webpage: GaryHabermas.com Gary Habermas' YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/HabermasYouTube Free E-Book by Gary Habermas: http://garyhabermas.com/Evidence2/Habermas-Uniqueness-of-Jesus-Christ-2016.pdf Book - Risen Indeed: A Historical Investigation Into the Resurrection of Jesus, (2021) by Dr. Gary Habermas: https://amzn.to/3tvUUzd ADDITIONAL RESOURCES: Watchman Fellowship article "The Key to Effective Religious Dialogue" by Jason Barker: watchman.org/Dialogue Watchman Fellowship article "Just Two Kinds of Religion" by Timothy Oliver: watchman.org/2Kinds Watchman Fellowship's 4-page Profile on Religious Pluralism by Lindsey Medenwaldt: watchman.org/Pluralism Watchman Fellowship's 4-page Profile on Hinduism by C.

Slideshow for this message is available Introduction John 20-21 Well we are in John chapter 20 where we come to the purpose statement of the book of John which we have referenced several dozen times in our preaching. The whole book of John was written for this reason. Now in order to accomplish this purpose, John tells us that he has been incredibly selective in his writing. To give you an indicator of just how selective he has been, if you notice the time markers in the book of John, there are only 21 or maybe 22 days of the life of Jesus which have been recorded. That's not a biography. The gospels are not biographies. He's chosen specific miracles, specific events so that in reading those events, they might persuade you to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God. Now here's what's interesting. The last event chosen, the climatic one, the one he chooses to really drive home the point that Jesus is the Christ, is this story about Thomas who struggles with doubt. Jesus looks at Thomas and says, “Do not disbelieve but believe.” Now I want to really press into this concept of doubt vs belief because not only does the book of John culminate with the call to believe, but the entire Christian faith culminates in it. The way you become a Christian is by believing! You are to believe the claim that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God. If you believe that, then you believe all the claims that go along with that and in believing that you are saved. Maybe you are walking in here today with doubt. You are not so sure. Maybe you feel like Thomas. You need more evidence. You won't believe unless certain conditions are met. Maybe you need to see a miracle. Maybe you don't understand the way science and the Bible go together. Maybe you don't understand how God and evil go together. You have some barrier in your mind that creates doubt. That's okay. Let's talk about that for a moment. What is doubt? Doubt can be defined as a mental or emotional state in which the mind remains suspended between two contradictory propositions. In Thomas case and maybe in in your case there are two claims which logically can't both be true. The Bible's claim: Jesus rose from the dead. The World's claim: Jesus is still in the grave. Which is it? The Christian claim is that Jesus rose from the dead. But experience tells you that dead people stay dead. Maybe for you that creates doubt. Doubt is not bad. To question the reality that someone rose from the dead is an intelligent doubt. We aren't supposed to believe everything we hear. You've got to give me good reasons why I am supposed to believe something that seems very unbelievable. If I'm going to move from doubt to belief, or even from the position of belief to greater belief, you have to give me the freedom to continue asking questions until I find some reliable grounds to satisfy my reason. Without healthy doubt there can be no healthy faith. So given this understanding of belief, we might think that what Thomas is lacking is good reasons. We might think that what he is lacking is evidence? But if we look carefully at the text, that is not the problem. Jesus kindly - but most definitely - rebukes Thomas in this passage. If it was reasonable for Thomas to ask for evidence, then it would be unreasonable for Jesus to rebuke. But Jesus rebuked. You should have believed without the evidence. And what that tells us is that what was preventing Thomas from believing the reports of the disciples was not lack of evidence. He claimed what he needed was evidence. But that's not what he needed. And that's actually the case for millions and millions of people today. Millions of people think that what they need in order to become a follower of Jesus is more evidence. But just like Thomas, that's not what they need. Let's find out what Thomas needed, and maybe in so doing, we will find out what you need to become a follower of Jesus Christ or what you need to strengthen a weak faith in Jesus Christ. Now the other disciples had seen the risen Lord and they were just ecstatic. They were out of their minds with excitement. But their testimony was unconvincing in his ears. Thomas says to them, “Okay, so apparently you were all in a locked room and you all saw something that ‘resembled' Jesus. Yeah, okay, all your testimonies agree. I'm sure you all saw something, but it wasn't Jesus. That sounds more like a ghost story than like a Jesus sighting.” And so Thomas obstinately demands evidence. What I need is more evidence. I won't believe until…. and then he lays down his conditions. Now what caused Thomas to doubt and demand this evidence? Some have conjectured that it was something in his disposition. Thomas shows up in two other places in the gospels and in both places he seems to suffers from an Eore complex, a glass half empty complex. He seems to bear the burden of a pessimist.Maybe he doubts because of disposition. But maybe he doubts because of experience. In some translations, Thomas has the nickname dydimous. That's just an untranslated Greek word. You can hear in it our English word diddo from. The ESV translation just translate the word dydimous which means twin. Thomas had a twin brother and I'm guessing an identical twin so perhaps Thomas had a unique perspective on mistaken identity. His entire life, he'd been mistaken for his brother. No I'm not Mark. Mark has the mole. I don't have the mole. I'm Thomas. He's been on the receiving end of mistaken identity his whole life. He knows just how possible this is. So Thomas, pulling from his pessimism, pulling from his experience with mistaken identity says, “I'm sure this guy reminded you of Jesus but there's no way it could be Jesus. I saw him die. I saw his stiffening, bloated body come off that tree. There's no way I'll believe it.” But seeing the insistence in the other disciples he says, “Okay, actually, there's one way. There's one identification marker that nobody could fake and that's the wounds. Unless I place my finger in the holes, I won't believe.” Thomas is the skeptic. Thomas is the doubter. We call him doubting Thomas. Now I always feel so bad for the guy. He gets this label slapped on him for the rest of history. You know if Thomas had a NT you know what verse I think would be highlighted, underlined and bolded in his Bible? Mark 16. Mark 16 is the parallel account of Jesus' first appearance to the disciples when Thomas was at away. Mark 16 Thomas is like, why did I get the label? Every single one of us doubted and because I happen to not be in the room, because I volunteered to go to Costco and buy groceries, I get the label, “Doubting Thomas.” Well, Thomas, it's a good point. We ought to have doubting Peter, doubting John, doubting Simon, doubting Andrew. They all did the same exact thing. They are all equally guilty. Now let's just push on this character assessment. What's wrong with a guy that wants a little proof? It's not like its exactly common for crucified people who have been embalmed in 70 pounds of spices and wrapped in linen clothes placed into sealed, guarded tombs to just get up and walk away. That's not exactly usual. Not only is it unusual, but that's kind of an important detail to nail down. It pretty much has a major impact on how these disciples are going to live out the rest of his life. What's wrong with a guy that wants a little proof? Now you can create a ton of clarity to these concepts if you add some adjectives. So instead of just talking about belief and doubt, let's talk in terms of healthy belief, unhealthy belief, healthy doubt and unhealthy doubt. And in order to see this clearly, let's look at this little diagram. So we will start in the upper left. A healthy belief is a belief that you hold for good reason. So for example, “I believe summer is coming.” You have scientific backing for that claim. You have experience to back the claim. You have history to back the claim. You are believing the right thing. An unhealthy belief is a belief that you hold for no good reason. This is the person who believes everything. They are gullible. So for example, “I believe in Santa Claus.” If you are an adult and you still believe that, you might have reasons, but I hate to break it to you, but you have no good ones. A healthy doubt is a doubt that is felt for good reasons. So it's good of you to doubt the reality of Santa Claus. You disbelieve the right things. An unhealthy doubt would be to question the reality of summer. You have no good reason to doubt that summer is coming. This is the person who disbelieves everything. Now where does Thomas fit? And for that matter, where do all the disciples fit? They are living in unhealthy doubt. Why? Because even though the claim is gigantic, “Jesus rose from the dead!” The reasons to believe that claim are also gigantic. Let me give you three. First, they had quality eye-witnessess. Let me give you an example of what I mean by this. If you've read the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe there's the scene where Lucy who is characteristically sweet has just returned from Narnia with Edmund who is known for being devious. When they rejoin the others Edmund claims that their journey was just a story Lucy made up. Susan and Peter don't really understand why Lucy is telling stories about this mysterious place called Narnia, and they realize the issue is beyond them to fix. They turn to the Professor for some advice. Susan's and Peter's can't understand why Lucy has been telling lies about Narnia. The Professor asks how it is they know that Lucy's story isn't true. So he makes them think. Lucy could be a liar. The Professor asks if Lucy or Edmund is generally the more truthful one. Both Peter and Susan agree the answer would typically be Lucy. Something could be wrong with Lucy (like madness). The Professor, however, quickly dismisses this as “one has only to look at her and talk to her to see that she is not mad.” Lucy is telling the truth- Susan and Peter are resistant to the idea that Lucy might be telling the truth because, in their minds, people don't just find other countries lying in wardrobes. But the Professor points out that the details of Lucy's story don't seem to be the sort she could just make up and there is a great deal even he doesn't know about the house. Thus, “for the moment then and unless any further evidence turns up, we must assume that she is telling the truth.” That's exactly what's happening here. Mary Magdalene, Salome and Mary the mother of James had all seen Jesus. And presumably they were not in the habit of lying, they were not mad, and much like the mysterious house, ‘there was a great deal they didn't yet know about Jesus.' So yes, the claim is gigantic, “Jesus rose from the dead!” but the reasons to believe that claim are also gigantic. 1. They had quality eye-witnessess. 2. They had seen extensive proof that Jesus was God. Because they had lived with the Lord, I want you to picture in your mind's eye what they had seen. Miracles of Jesus. 1.Water into wine at the wedding in Cana 2.Healing of the official's son at Capernaum in Galilee 3.Jesus drives out an evil spirit from a man in Capernaum 4.Jesus heals Peter's mother-in-law sick with fever 5.Jesus heals many sick and oppressed at evening 6.First miraculous catch of fish on Sea of Galilee 7.Jesus cleanses a man with leprosy 8.Jesus heals a centurion's paralyzed servant in Capernaum 9.Jesus heals a paralytic who was let down from the roof 10. Jesus heals a man's withered hand on the Sabbath 11. Jesus raises a widow's son from the dead in Nain 12. Jesus calms a storm on the sea 13. Jesus casts demons into a herd of pigs 14. Jesus heals a woman in the crowd with an issue of blood 15. Jesus raises Jairus' daughter back to life 16. Jesus heals two blind men 17. Jesus heals a man who was unable to speak 18. Jesus heals an invalid at Bethesda 19. Jesus feeds 5,000 plus women and children 20. Jesus walks on water 21. Jesus heals many sick in Gennesaret as they touch his garment 22. Jesus heals a gentile woman's demon-possessed daughter 23. Jesus heals a deaf and dumb man 24. Jesus feeds 4,000 plus women and children 25. Jesus heals a blind man at Bethsaida 26. Jesus heals a man born blind by spitting in his eyes 27. Jesus heals a boy with an unclean spirit 28. Miraculous temple tax in a fish's mouth 29. Jesus heals a blind, mute demoniac 30. Jesus heals a woman who had been crippled for 18 years 31. Jesus heals a man with dropsy on the sabbath 32. Jesus cleanses ten lepers on the way to Jerusalem 33. Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead in Bethany 34. Jesus restores sight to Bartimaeus in Jericho 35. Jesus withers the fig tree on the road from Bethany 36. Jesus heals a servant's severed ear while he is being arrested So yes, the claim is gigantic, “Jesus rose from the dead!” but the reasons to believe that claim are also gigantic. 1. They had quality eye-witnessess. 2. They had seen extensive proof that Jesus was God. 3. They had clear predictions that this very event would transpire. On several different occasions that he would die and be raised again. In Jn 2 he told his opponents, destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. In Mt 12 he said, just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. You might say, well those are kind of cryptic references. Well, do you think this is cryptic? Luke 18:31-33, And taking the twelve, he said to them, See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. 32 For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon. 33 And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise. Or how about a couple chapters later. Luke 24:7, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise. That is not mysterious. I'm just saying. In fact, it was such common knowledge that even his enemies knew the plain interpretation of his words. After Jesus had died and was laid in the tomb we read, Matthew 27 So let me ask you, “Did Thomas have good reason to doubt?” No. So if he didn't have good reason to doubt, then why did he doubt? Maybe you are here today with good reason to doubt. You haven't done the research. You have good questions. Continue seeking. But maybe you are here today and you are like Thomas and you don't realize that the reasons you are holding onto are not good reasons. You say you have good reasons to doubt, you say that you are needing certain specific pieces of evidence, but maybe it's not an intellectual obstacle. Let me introduce one more concept into our chart. Thomas used to be in this box. Maybe that describes you. You grew up in church. You used to go to AWANA. You used to read your Bible and believe everything it said. You used to be sold out for the Lord. But then something happened. In Thomas' case, it was shattered expectations and misunderstanding of God's plan. He thought Jesus was going to bless him and instead he left him. Maybe that's how you feel? And Thomas couldn't deal with it. So tragedy caused him to doubt. Tragedy shook him off his feet. When you move from belief to unbelief or from unbelief to belief, you cross over this line and we are going to call this line of doubt, the line of implications. Think about it. For Thomas, he had to wrestle with the claim that Jesus was God. And the longer he lived, the more he believed that claim. With every miracle, his faith grew. But then Jesus died. And his world fell apart. Any time you cross over that line. Whether from belief to unbelief or from unbelief to belief, you don't do it without some pretty serious implications. Crossing that line shatters a person. Because everything you've built your life upon falls crumbles like sand. It's extremely unsettling. It's extremely crushing. And in order to successfully cross the line, you have to have the emotional courage to deal with it. And many people don't have the courage. They would rather continue living a lie then admit that their entire life has been spent building upon a foundation of sand in which their head is buried. You see for Thomas, believing that Jesus had risen from the dead, in the end, was an emotional problem. Thomas already crossed that line once. He was shattered. Emotionally he was destroyed and he was picking up the pieces. Everything he built his life upon was in ruins. He probably felt hurt, betrayed, wounded and what was once glowing love for Jesus was replaced with deep suspicion. He had deconstructed. He wasn't about to go back there again. Maybe that describes you. Something hurt you. You felt let down by a church leader, or God allowed something to happen in your life that you felt should never have happened. And that thing, whatever it was, shattered you. And now your like Thomas. Your faith has been deconstructed and you feel fragmented and fractured. You feel duped. You felt like a kid who discovered Santa wasn't real. And your whole world got turned upside down. And when you crossed over that line of implications you were wrecked. And now you've been living on the other side of that line for a while now. And you are looking back over that line to where you used to be and you hear good arguments for the resurrection, you know that the argument of evolution doesn't work, but you can't emotionally bear the weight of crossing that line again. It's too dangerous. You've got to protect your soul. You've got to make sure that soul injury doesn't get repeated. Listen friend, Thomas can relate. God has sympathy for how you feel. In Jude 1:20 we have instruction given to us on how to treat people who doubt. Jude Have mercy. It's understandable why you feel this way. It's a state that should evoke sympathy. We see this kind of mercy in Jesus as he approached Thomas. Jesus comes under the same circumstances (closed doors) and with the same greeting of peace as before (20:19, 26). This is definitely a mild, gentle, loving correction. He doesn't say Thomas' condition is acceptable. He doesn't say, “Well, Thomas, I know you're doubting, but that's understandable, because I haven't shown you the evidence.” He says, “Stop doubting” which means Thomas should have believed. He was not listening to the women who had seen him and he was not listening to the disciples. But most of all, he was not listening to Jesus himself who had demonstrated his power and predicted this moment. Thomas wouldn't believe. He says, “I won't believe until I actually see him.” Well Jesus shows up, and he offers him the evidence, but you know what, the text is very careful to point out, he never takes up Jesus' offer. He never actually gets up and puts his hands and fingers in the holes. You want to know why? Because that was never the issue. Evidence was never the issue. The issue was he was too afraid. The issue was it was too good to be true and he didn't want to get his hopes up only to be dashed to pieces. Maybe he felt abandoned by Jesus and there was fear of another abandonment. And while that is sympathy inducing, it's also a barrier to his joy. Here was an offer of absolute happiness and there was a defiance of that happiness. Can I ask, maybe that's what's preventing you from coming to Jesus? Well, notice what fixes the problem for Thomas. It's simply seeing him. It's simply being with him. It's simply beholding him. Thomas saw something great and it brought him back to Jesus. You need the same thing Thomas needed. You don't need to see Jesus in the flesh. What you need is to see Jesus in the text, in his Words. You just need to read the book of John again. You need to read about who he claimed to be. Look at how he responded. And you know what will happen. If you drop those fears of abandonment, and you say, what if that tragedy that pushed me away from God was actually the way God would help me see him for not who I wanted him to be but who he actually is? Spend time in the Bible, friend. See Jesus and will discover, like millions who have gone before you, that in so doing, you will fall on your face and declare, “May Lord and my God.” If you read the 8 miracles of Jesus in almost every instance, those who see the miracles in real life don't believe. What kind of a miracle is that? Why would John choose these miracles? They didn't have the right effect on those who watched them. Why would they have a greater effect on those who read them? Remember the religious leaders in John 11. They watched Lazarus be raised from the dead. I mean that's a legit miracle. But here was the response. So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the Council and said, “What are we to do? For this man performs many signs. If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation... so from that day on they made plans to put him to death. And after this they did. They killed the Son of God. Did miracles and signs and wonders cause them to believe? No. Why didn't they believe? Fear! The Pharisees were scared of giving up their precious - their place and their position. And that fear blinded them. They couldn't see him. And maybe that's what's preventing you coming to Jesus. It's scary crossing that line of implication. It takes tremendous courage. It takes all kinds of bravery and fearlessness. But what if it's true? Would you really want to fend of eternal joy your entire life for fear of being disappointed? John is pointing us to something. We all need evidence. We don't need less than that but we need more than that. Evidence alone will never save a person. God uses evidence but what you really need is Jesus himself. You need to behold him. You need to consider his claims. You need to interact with his person. It's the person of Jesus that actually changes. It's the person. In the end it's not the evidence. And you need to drop that fear that binds you. But all who see, all who drop their fear, all who open their eyes and gaze, ALL, and I do mean ALL, are saved. ALL are saved who open their eyes and see Jesus. He is irresistible! All fall on their face and say, “My Lord and My God!”

Welcome to episode 49 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I'll be wrapping up my discussion about Eiji Kitamura and his Christmas music, with his fantastic 2001 album, “Santa Clarinet.” While Akira Ishikawa's “Drum Christmas Drum” kicked off my interest in Japanese Christmas music, the Jazz, Group Sounds and Mood Kayo albums of the 1960s really cemented my obsession, while the City Pop Christmas music from the 1980s broadened my collecting horizons and led to me finding an even wider variety of music. One of the things I love about Eiji Kitamura is that he serves as a bridge from the earliest days of Japanese Pop music to today. He got his start around the same time Hibari Misora's “Hitoribocchi no Christmas” gave birth to Japanese Christmas Pop, so he has been an eyewitness to the genre as it's evolved. That's part of why I'd love to see him do an album where he covers all the big Japanese Christmas songs, from Kai Band's “Anna,” to Yumi Matsutoya's “Koibito ga Santa Claus,” Keisuke Kuwata's “Merry X'mas In Summer” and “White Lovers,” and, of course, Tatsuro Yamashita's “Christmas Eve.” I have a couple Jazz albums with covers of a lot of those songs, but having one from Eiji Kitamura would be something special, considering his long history in the industry. I hope you've enjoyed learning about Eiji Kitamura. Join me back here next month for my special 50th episode, where I'll be talking about the 1977 compilation, “Merry Christmas (Bouquet of Hearts Present Series),” from King Records. It's a great album in its own right with an interesting history, but it's also an instrumental album for me personally, not just in the way it helped me improve my research and collecting strategy, but in the long-standing connection it's given me with a like-minded collector in Japan. It's a double LP and will take a lot of work to prepare, so at this point I'm not sure what else I'll cover next month, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you'd like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

On this edition of Parallax Views, Santa Claus is running for Congress! Hailing from North Pole, Alaska, where he's served as the President of the Chamber of Commerce and two terms in the City Council, the ordained monk who legally changed his name to Santa Claus and became a local legend for his work helping children in need is throwing himself into a carnival-esque Congressional race in Alaska that includes over 40 candidates including Sarah Palin. This real-life St. Nicholas isn't some joke candidate either. He's gone viral and is gaining grassroots support. Moreover he's a Santa Claus of the people who describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, supporter of Bernie Sanders, and proponent of Medicare4All. In a past life he was a member of the Screen Actors Guild and did work on counter-terrorism. Through his life he's come to see what he calls the love vs. fear dynamic that holds us apart. With his run for congress he wants to inspire children across the world much like he did visiting them in orphanages, making videos for them during the COVID crisis, and more.  In this conversation you'll learn the funny story about how President Obama got him to run for taxes as well as his stances on human rights, housing, medical marijuana, indigenous peoples, the wealth tax, and much, much more as well as the importance of making a difference to children in these polarizing times.

There is every reason to believe that he was a real martyr who suffered at Lydda in Palestine, probably before the time of Constantine. The Church adheres to his memory, but not to the legends surrounding his life. That he was willing to pay the supreme price to follow Christ is what the Church believes. And it is enough. The story of George's slaying the dragon, rescuing the king's daughter, and converting Libya is a 12th-century Italian fable. George was a favorite patron saint of crusaders, as well as of Eastern soldiers in earlier times. He is a patron saint of England, Portugal, Germany, Aragon, Catalonia, Genoa, Milan and Bologna. Reflection Human nature seems to crave more than cold historical data. Americans have Washington and Lincoln, but we somehow need Paul Bunyan, too. The life of Saint Francis of Assisi is inspiring enough, but for centuries the Italians have found his spirit in the legends of the Fioretti, too. Santa Claus is the popular extension of the spirit of Saint Nicholas. The legends about Saint George are part of this yearning. Both fact and legend are human ways of illumining the mysterious truth about the One who alone is holy.

It's a journey for the ages this week, Junkies, as we explore the horrors of high school, college, and the workplace! Up first! It's Sean Cunningham's rarely discussed mid-80s rural Florida thriller The New Kids, (aka Striking Back) from 1985! It's that one where Lori Laughlin and the other kid beat the crap out of James Spader and those other dudes in a decrepit Santa Claus themed theme park. Remember? Next up! Everyone's favorite actors, Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov return to the screen with a Police Academy style send-up of the funeral home industry entitled Mortuary Academy (from 1988)! It's got a lot of puns, some on-screen rapping, and has been compared favorably to Hamburger the Motion Picture by at least one of the JFD hosts. Finally! Of course, it's 1997's Office Killer, from esteemed fine art photographer Cindy Sherman. How could we not review a movie where Carol Kane goes batso and attacks Molly Ringwald? All this plus Sean's surprise visitor, unwanted baseball chats, Easter candies and Easter regrets, medium skype factors, ruminations on an Armenian film classic, horror folks, the world's biggest Marvel zombie, why aren't they making Draculer for god's sake?, lighting as character, podcast jazz, cats pulling the plug, anti-work groups, nerd news and even more!

Father Len explores two Bible stories about the purpose of prayer beginning with the time the disciples ask Jesus to teach them how to pray. This is a preview of episode 3 of the new podcast from Wrestling with God Productions, featuring Father Len, titled “Life Lessons from Jesus and the Church He Founded.” Highlights, Ideas, and Wisdom Father Len shares a fun story about his experience with a Protestant minister and his wife who have a very different idea than Jesus about the purpose of prayer. The purpose of prayer is not to ask God for help getting something as if God is the big Santa Claus in the sky. We don't pray to get something. We pray to become something. “If your definition of prayer is to get something you want, you better be careful. You may become a very self-absorbed person and then call it religion.” – Father Len We pray for the bread of life so that our lives become bread for other people. We hand on the bread of life to other people in the way that we live our lives. Becoming the bread of life for other people requires persistent prayer, day after day, year after year. The Lord's Prayer in the Gospel of Luke refers to the forgiveness God gives us when our lives become a force of forgiveness and we free ourselves from all grudges and resentments. Becoming a constant force of forgiveness isn't easy and takes a lifetime of prayer. Prayer is a type of hospitality. The prayer life of the prophet Abraham, the father of religion and hospitality, was all about welcoming and praying for the life of other people, not for himself. True prayer is not being concerned about yourself. True prayer is this hospitality where your prayer life feeds other people. “You have a choice. When you offer hospitality to other people, God grants you greater life. When you only care for your own life, God will take away the little life you have.” – Father Len Prayer is a constant lifelong dialogue with God about becoming holy.

You know to clarify, it's choosing me over and over again. Because we all have a tendency to check out Brene Brown who talks about showing up in the arena. It's kind of like, okay, well, I checked out of my mindfulness yesterday. But today, I'm gonna see if I can stay in the mindfulness longer. It's this idea that I'm just going to keep showing up day after day. That's just like my discipline, you know, no matter what, I'm gonna stand behind myself, Yes, I'm gonna say me. Effect on Emotions Emotions are full of gifts. Right? For example, anger is when I feel anger, that's when I should set boundaries with the bully. So it's really funny, Bruce, as an Asian girl growing up in Asia, I was told I have to be nice and people-pleasing, and I was completely disconnected from my anger. I talked about this in my book, how, even in the moment of rape, I  shouldn't be angry. But I am not angry. So like, I should fight back, but I don't. Therefore the gift of anger, you know, my trauma responses, freezing and thawing. You know, those are kind of like the conditioning, but if I own my anger, I can really love my emotion. Emotions are the most powerful thing. Definitely embrace and appreciate all the protection that comes from your emotions. Thoughts on Breathing One of my favorite breathing techniques is to put one hand over the heart and one hand below the belly button. And just really picturing myself as Santa Claus with a big belly. So when I breathe in, I'm like, okay, when he gives me the biggest Santa Claus belly you can, because the lower abdominal breathing really grounds and anchors. I want to talk a minute about the recycling program. Shinzon Jung talks about this; we have all the positives in the world. That's like loving forgiveness, compassion, and light. And then we have all the negatives in the world, like shame, fear, anger. We don't actually get to the emptiness condition by love and light, we get to the emptiness condition or the oneness condition or the zero, by mathematically adding all the plus, all the negative, then we get the zero. So true power, true source. Certainly, true oneness is when we put together all the positives and all the minus and get zero. So how we do that actually is below the belly button. In Chinese martial arts, we call that the dantian. And in yoga they call it the Kundalini center navel point. There's a lot of different names for this practice. That is to say, when we breathe in, we breathe all the love and light. And we can source and connect to all the anger and fear and all the negative things in our body; cancer, whatever you want. Channel that into the dawn tan, and mix the light and the dark together into oneness. Above all that is how I want all the listeners to try breathing. You know, when you feel angry, or scared, be like, Oh my god, I have the raw ingredients to make a powerful ball. You know, it's kind of like if I'm cooking a pot of soup. I need all the ingredients. I need the sugar, and I need the lemon to make lemonade. Suggested Resources Book: Honoring Darkness: Embrace Shadow Work To Nourish And Grow Your Power By Winnie Chan Wang Book: Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing) Book: Unbinding The Soul: Awakening Through Crisis and Compassion by Dr Raven Lee Book: Tao Science: The Science, Wisdom, and Practice of Creation and Grand Unification App: Headspace Bullying Story I've had verbal abuse, emotional abuse, gaslighting, and all kinds of humiliation in my life. So I'm going to start with the other counterpart. My teacher calls this the ABCDE method. First, A is aware, right? Your mindfulness is like, oh, I'm aware that this is happening, or I'm aware that I'm triggered as something happened, and I'm triggered back to the trauma that I was bullied. But A is also to accept, right? This is the equanimity part to accept that this is happening. And actually to appreciate. Appreciate the sensation inside my body, okay, maybe my throat is choking. Meanwhile, I am shivering, maybe I'm even peeing in my pants, you know, like, appreciate that my body is doing what it needs to be and also appreciate that God doesn't give us bullying to punish us. God gives us bullying, to help us learn how to make lemonade out of the lemons, so that we can make connections and spread love and feel the belonging. That's the other thing is that intimacy happens when we have vulnerable and difficult conversations. If we just talk about hey, how's your golf game? Oh, yeah, the Lakers won, whatever. Hey, how's your food? How's the movie? If we just talk on a superficial level? We're never gonna get intimacy, right. So but if I share with you my rape story, my abortion story, my bullying story, then I have a connection. So almost think about I'm not stuck as the victim. Because whatever lemons that happened to my life, I can make lemonade out of it. Next is B which means breathe. Whether you're in the middle of being bullied, or you're being triggered back to a memory of bullying, you breathe. C is the compassionate witness. In short, compassionate witness is our ability to validate the victim. Oh, you know, yes, you are bullied. It makes sense to me that you're feeling cold and shivering and palpitations and all of that. But also the witness word is very important because that's like the observer. If we only have compassion, we actually dwell on victimhood. We're like, oh, yeah, you know, it sucks that I'm bullied. I'm a victim, I'm a victim, but the minute we bring the witness, it's like okay, I am detaching from the story, the victim card, and I become the witness. C means compassionate witness. If you get to see the amazing job, okay, it took me a lot of time and years to proceed. D is dialogue within and what it means to dialogue within. So meditate and reflect on what is really going on. For example, let's say I am the victim of the silent treatment, okay? Shadow Work To Nourish And Grow. Somebody is emotionally bullying me with the silent treatment. Okay, so on the top level, I am feeling abandoned, rejected, sadness. When we do the shadow work, we dive deeper into our subconscious. We're like, okay, what is beneath this thing that I'm experiencing? And you check-in and you're like, oh, because deeper down, I have a thought that I'm not lovable. And I'm not worthy of my respect. I'm not worthy of other people's respect. I don't know that I'm a gift to the world, and I just feel utterly worthless. Okay, so d is when we don't look at, like, okay, that person hurt me. But really go down into what is my core source fracture? Do we call this? Yes, you're unworthy. And when this one, the fact that you don't love yourself, you don't respect yourself that causes the manifestation of the bullying, right? Lastly, E is an effective response. So that's when you be like, Okay, well, now that I've done ABCD, what is the effective response? So instead of reacting out of the trauma of being a bully, being bullied, it's like, well, how can I empower myself? You know, having done all the shadow work, how having empowered me, what can I do? How have I disempowered myself to manifest this bullying situation? Maybe if I really own that, you know, I can work on loving myself, respecting myself, feeling that I am a gift to the whole universe, I am a legend. As a result, I'm here. I'm authentic. And you know, from a place of strength and power, how am I going to respond to this bullying situation? Oh, and I do want to reference if you like the ABCDE method. It's by Dr. Raven Lee. And her book is called Unbinding The Soul: Awakening Through Crisis and Compassion by Dr Raven Lee.
