Don’t Look Up

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #729: Ascension… The story of Christ continues through the Church with a strict command to NOT look up. The work of the Church is around us. The shooting in Texas, the death of children, and conditions of the world… where then to look? Beyond the “whys” is the “where” – making sense of faith on the street and not in the books… The Next Step is a step toward Armodoxy.

Good-heart Bible

Next Step #639: Does over analysis and applying reason to the Bible lead you away from Faith? It’s the starting question for this discussion, recognizing there are no wrong questions. Mark 4:35f and hardness of heart: doubt vs. experience. Reconciling absurdity with Faith: Learning and testing through vs computer programming. A different look at the rules that define us.

Stiff Neck Bible Phenomena

After Christ’s temptations and the last one – a revisit of the film, story and controversy. Jesus, Widows and Orphans: Not playing by the rules. Beirut and the Grapeblessing service.

Extreme, Fanatic and the Good

Next Step #606: “Prayers for the President” opens a discussion about fanaticism. The Old Testament and the most severe curses of the Bible: Jesus’ radical approach. Fanaticism – fear and warnings about literalism. Martin Luther King Jr. an “extremest for love” in the footsteps of Jesus.

Hysteria and Exaltation

Next Step #588: Hysteria takes many forms. From the Beatles (Beatlemania) to expressions today in the self-professed prophets of Christianity, the excitement focuses on the messenger rather than the message. Dangers of Bible study without structure. The Exaltation of the Holy Cross – a major feast with a major message to connect the dots twixt hysteria and meaning. Fr. Vazken makes his selections from the Christian cafeteria with no apologies but with menu recommendations. Statistics – their use and misuse: Why do 4 out of 5 dentists prefer Crest? The birth of the Bible: Surprise!

Digestible Faith

Next Step #347: After appearing as guest on a call-in talk show, Fr. Vazken reflects about the importance of the questioning; mistaken notions of the Bible; evolving faith.
