  • How Does One Walk By The Spirit?

    02/11/2016 7:02:10 PM PST · by Armen Hareyan · 11 replies ^ | Jan. 22, 2016 | Armen Hareyan
    If you from various kinds of bad thoughts and you lost your peace, this is a sign that "you live according to the flesh." Do you know that when you think of the Spirit of God there is neither ‪sadness nor ‪‎disappointments? Have you ever seen a disappointing saint? That's why the Apostle Paul taught to walk "by the spirit." (Romans 8: 5; Gal. 5:16). This is the only real way to overcome worldly difficulties and bad habits because when your mind is governed by the Spirit the result is peace and real life. If you want peace, walk by...

    Beams of Heaven As I Go – A Homily for the Second Sunday of Lent By: Msgr. Charles PopeWhat is it that gives hope, peace, and serene joy to the Christian life? Briefly, it is the vision of glory, a glimpse into the Promised Land of Heaven, which the Lord can and does give to His people. Today’s gospel shows forth a kind of process wherein the Lord lays the foundations of hope, peace, and joy for His disciples and for us. Let’s look at four aspects of how the Lord lays this foundation.I. The Paradoxical Prelude - The...

    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...

    I was so moved reading this last night. Ballad of the White Horse is Chesterton's poem about the English King Alfred, who fought the Danes in 878. "But it is also the story of Christianity battling against the destructive forces of nihilism and heathenism" (Alquist comments). The Blessed Virgin has appeared to King Alfred right before the battle; he queries her as to the outcome of the battle. "If he fail or if he win/ To no good man is told," she tells him. And continues: The men of the East may spell the stars, And times and triumphs mark,...

    We've all heard the phrase, "Well, if it works for you...", as a justification for this or that behavior or attitude. It's a reflection of the relativistic yet utilitarian values of our society. "It may not work for you, but it works for me...," and who are we to question the efficacy of "what works"? The truth is, "If it works for you..." is a myth.

And what was the source of Gergen's knowledge of the subject? He repeatedly made reference to statements made by "close associates" of . . . Berger! In other words, Gergen was nothing more than a shill for the Berger/Dem party line. In fairness to Today, they led the show with...

Smiley was the best of the operatives, patiently wending his way through misinformation and misdirection, deceptions and deceits. In the era of Reagan, everything had to be understood as admitting of at least two interpretations. Was your information genuine or planted, or did the Soviets or East Germans or someone else want you to think it was planted, and would you let them know that you knew?

So declared Gipper speechwriter Peter Robinson, author of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life, on my radio program Monday. Robinson's right, too, of course. There have been many gifted orators whose cause was evil; many "communicators" who dealt in death. Reagan's greatness is anchored in his and his country's goodness. Reagan used the term "evil empire," and sent the intelligentsia into shock. Because he stood with the good, however, Reagan could use the language of absolutes and move public...

    Do pictures of John Kerry in his Lycra cycling suit make you wonder if he's running for the right reasons? WHEN JOHN KERRY took a spill from his bike this past weekend, it triggered thoughts of Jimmy Carter's collapse in a road race, Gerald Ford's much-mocked stumbles, and of Kerry's own misadventures on the ski slopes earlier this year. But it wasn't until the pictures of Kerry on his bike appeared that the real damage was done. The electric-lemon Lycra look probably won't play well outside the metrosexual caucus, and it can't be particularly inspiring to the troops living in...

Kerry followed a week made disastrous by his military records fiasco with a Monday morning performance with Charlie Gibson of ABC's Good Morning America that will live in TV history alongside the 1980 Roger Mudd-Teddy Kennedy exchange through which it dawned on America that a senator in search of a verb wasn't really equipped to be a president.

The debate over homosexuality in general, and gay marriage in particular, is also difficult to separate from the debate over religion in public life. There is such intense anger on both sides of the issue that debates flare suddenly into shouting matches. The issue...

    THERE ARE A COUPLE of key pieces of conventional wisdom floating downstream from Washington these days. The first is that a Bush-Kerry race will be very, very close. Bush-Gore close. The second is that Senator Kerry's anti-war radicalism following his return from service in Vietnam shouldn't--and won't--be an issue in November. You can believe one of these views, but you cannot hold on to both. If the election really will be a replay of 2000, then every issue that moves even handfuls of voters matters a great deal.

That's about as tough as a campaign slogan can get. It was the rallying cry of the Lord Salisbury-Joe Chamberlain forces in Great Britain's Khaki election of 1900. The war with the Boers had begun to go well after shocking, initial defeats, and the Tory-Liberal Unionist alliance called for an election and made it a referendum on the conduct of the conflict. In "Dreadnought," Robert Massie provides a sense...

    Wesley Clark Speaks Out The general explains why the president isn't a patriot and only Democrats are devout. by Hugh Hewitt HOWARD DEAN'S BELLOWING the roll call of the states on Monday night may capture the weird sweepstakes this election season, but Wesley Clark can't be counted out just yet. Most of the cameras were in Iowa while the general tromped around the Granite State, but the record he left is promising when it comes to snap potential. Rick Lowry had a tape recorder on when Clark delivered some choice words on faith and the president's patriotism, and was kind...

    NANCY PELOSI was upset after the federal appeals court upheld the new congressional districting map for the Lone Star State Tuesday: "This is just the latest attempt by President Bush, Tom Delay, and other Republicans to dismantle the Voting Rights Act. The Texas redistricting plan shows once again that when Republicans cannot win elections fair and square, they rig the rules."Then Pelosi went Alamo: "We will fight to the finish for Texas."That's a wonderful image: The hyper-lefty from San Francisco leading a crusade to turn Texas into a Democratic state. I hope someone brings a video camera. Sore loser rhetoric,...

    Minimizing the Holocaust Posted: January 7, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern While there is plenty of news this week from North Korea's "offer" concerning its nukes to Howard Dean's embrace of the campaign equivalent of the NFL's prevent defense I want to point you to the best and worst aspects of Americans' use of the Web. Spirit of America is an innovative use of the Web to provide help to our military in Iraq via the donation of material and money to be used in assisting the local populations in rebuilding. From frisbees to footballs to funds for...

    .Contagious madness Posted: December 24, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern Hours after the Homeland Security alert level was raised on Sunday, a poster at Howard Dean's "Blog for America" made this comment, which is representative of opinion among the Dean Dongs: "Dean's remarks about national security and the Saddam capture not making the U.S. any safer has [sic] been validated by today's Orange Alert."There's no arguing with such reasoning even by pointing out that although banks continued to be robbed after Dillinger was killed, banks were indisputably safer than when he was alive and among the robbers. The left does...

    Dean goes over the cliff Posted: December 17, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern "But the capture of Saddam Hussein has not made America safer."Wait a minute. Wait a minute. That was an amazing statement. We ought to stay and think on it a bit. The statement came from Howard Dean, who had carefully re-crafted his "big foreign-policy speech" delivered in Los Angeles on Monday to reflect circumstances after the capture of Saddam. So many people are saying stupid things, that the "stupid things people are saying" commentary is accumulating at a torrential rate. Bloggers are in overdrive see Andrew Sullivan...

    Hugh Hewitt has posted links to several reviews of Tuesday's debate between Frank Gaffney and Grover Norquist, about Gaffney's recent expose of Norquist's Islamist ties which has gotten so much attention at Free Republic the past few days. I checked them out, and thought they were worth a read here... December 09, 2003 Gaffney versus Norquist On his show tonight Hugh Hewitt led with a full hour devoted to a joint interview of Frank Gaffney and Grover Norquist regarding Gaffney's Frontpage article (discussed below earlier today): "A troubling influence."

    The Dean campaign Posted: December 10, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern The breathless tone of Samantha M. Shapiro's New York Times Magazine cover story on the Dean Campaign, "The Dean Swarm," suggests that Ms. Shapiro hasn't covered many presidential campaigns. Either that, or the arrogance of the Dean Campaign is equal to the arrogance of its candidate. Every presidential campaign of each party draws a huge host of true believers from a variety of walks of life. They join up, often for odd reasons, and form intense attachments because presidential campaigns are intense adventures, especially if the volunteers are young. For...

    Great Christmas presents Posted: December 3, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern The Christmas shopping season has arrived and early reports are that the president's tax cuts have worked and the economy and Christmas spending are growing as a result. This is great news for the country and for the president's re-election prospects. But it ought to be great news as well for book-lovers. Christmas is the best time of year to give and receive books. They are the perfect presents, and your choice of title conveys messages of affection clearer than any Hallmark card. But there are hundreds of thousands of...

    .Profiles in Self-absorptionTwo new books paint damning pictures of administrations loyal only to Hugh Hewitt 11/26/2003 12:00:00 AM SOME BOOKS should be read in tandem. One pair for parallel reading: William Manchester's second volume in his life of Churchill, "Alone," and Rich Lowry's fine new effort: "Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years." Manchester's book chronicles the wilderness years of the greatest man of the 20th century, and it is thus obliged to follow the doings of the not-so-great men who held power in Britain through most of the '30s, including Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain. Here is...

    Those who protect us Posted: November 26, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern This is the third Thanksgiving since the attacks on America took the nation into a declared war. Since Sept. 11, 2001, hundreds of thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines have deployed to the far reaches of the globe to end the terrorist threat before it struck again within our borders. Hundreds of these brave men and women have been killed and thousands wounded so that we can sleep more securely in our beds at night and travel freely on broad roads to enjoy expansive feasts this week.

    Fate of the Democrats Posted: November 19, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern Last week marked a huge burst of activity from the United States Congress. Not only did Senate Majority Leader Frist lead his Republican colleagues in an excellent exposing of Democratic obstructionism on judicial nominees, but conference committees finished work on two major pieces of legislation. House and Senate negotiators finished work on a major energy bill and on a Medicare-reform bill that includes a prescription-drug benefit. The energy bill contains some traditional pork, but it also authorizes the construction of a new and much needed Alaska natural gas pipeline....

This little-noticed action launched a revolution in land use in southern California that has culminated in the fires that have now claimed at least 17 lives, destroyed close to 2,000 homes, and consumed more than 600,000 acres throughout the region. For 15 years the federal government, urged on by environmental...
