Changing the Program

Next Step #745: Armenia is under attack. Einstein’s theory of insanity is tested again as the same program is followed: GIGO once again. Archimedes – his lever and fulcrum – here is the plank to use. Gandhi and MLK tapped into the Power which Armodoxy has had all along. Mutual annihilation: It’s a check and not checkmate. Listen in for a renewal of the “Leveraging Love” plan. Reconciling Khrimian’s admonition to “bring guns” and Gandhi’s demand for non-violence.

Forgiveness & Freedom

Next Step #735: Back in 2007, on this day, we established the Day of Forgiveness based on Christ’s principle of forgiving without limit. Here’s another reminder of the dimensions of forgiveness and leading to freedom. A shooting in Chicago is the latest of a string of shootings in a country that is struggling with freedom and the control of that freedom. Here are the links to today’s topics.

Infinity and Eternity in the Highlands

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #731: A conversation with Dr. Marina Mchitarian-Lazaridou, Ph.D., A scientist with artistic interests, who opens the door and mind for a conversation on peace. An international traveler and scholar who gives language to photographs that tell a story of a people, a history, a philosophy and a way of life. In this interview, Dr. Mkhitaryan talks about her own spiritual journey through science, physics, her baptism and her expressions. The fifth dimension / “the Divine dimension”: A dialogue with God. Home and identity. “Peace building” – more than an absence of war.

WWJB?

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #719: In today’s podcast: Absurdity abounds with a question and the seeming answer. 2.5million refugees and thousands dead, on this fourth week of the War in Ukraine, people are justifying peace! Not just-war but just-peace: absurdity. Pope Francis calls up Kirill and says there is no holy war. Lessons not-learned: generations that will be affected after War. Here’s an Armodox look at what’s going on.

Apologies Abound

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #693: Apologetics is the intellectual defense of the truth of the Christian religion, usually considered a branch of theology, by definition. Justifying what is beyond understanding and the challenge to communicate ideas, despite differences of opinions, is this next step. Expressions of His Holiness Karekin II to the Conference on Freedom and Peace in Holy Etchmiadzin.

Hitting the Mark but Missing the Point

Next Step #632: At Vartavar the story of the Transfiguration is washed up.
