    God is a Spirit ^ | OCT 2007 | FAIR LDS

    Virtue Online ^ | John R. W. Stott
    Letter and spirit. Is the law still binding upon the Christian? The answer to that is, No and Yes. 'No' in the sense that our acceptance before God does not depend on it. Christ in his death fully met the demands of the law, so that we are delivered from it. It no longer has any claims on us. It is no longer our lord. 'Yes' in the sense that our new life is still a bondage. We still 'serve'. We are still slaves, although discharged from the law. But the motive and the means of our service have altered....

    Spirits spook at Dean College By Joyce Kelly/Daily News staff Milford Daily NewsPosted Oct 13, 2008 @ 12:32 AM Last update Oct 13, 2008 @ 02:46 PM FRANKLIN — Even after a century, members of the philanthropic Ray family may still be hanging around their old haunts, according to staff at Dean College. Workers at Ray House, which serves as the school's admissions office, and several staff members, including Vice President of Enrollment Jay Leiendecker, have reported encounters with spirits they believe are Ray family members. The house was their former home, built in the 1800s. Sensing a spirit, or...

    NEW YORK (AP) — It is a fitting backdrop for a ghost story: An old mansion on a secluded hilltop sits empty, save for a caretaker who lives upstairs. A no-trespassing sign is staked near the locked metal gates, and the stately grounds are covered in thistles.
  • The Canker of Contention (LDS Devotional)

    LDS.org ^ | Russell M. Nelson, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
    What can we do to combat this canker of contention? What steps may each of us take to supplant the spirit of contention with a spirit of personal peace? To begin, show compassionate concern for others. Control the tongue, the pen, and the word processor. Whenever tempted to dispute, remember this proverb: “He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.” (Prov. 11:12; see also Prov. 17:28.) Bridle the passion to speak or write contentiously for personal gain or glory. The Apostle Paul thus counseled the Philippians, “Let nothing be done through...

    The building of true civilization has always been exposed to various difficulties. But in the end, periods of unemployment, war and political turboil is nothing but small potatoes. Personally speaking, I'll turn 39 years old soon and one of the things that make me get out of bed and drive off to work each morning - a part from the luxury of driving a wonderful Volvo V70 to the place - is the magnificence of toiling in the company of certain younger Swedish work mates who I daily encounter there; people in their 20s who believe in hard work and...

    Yesterday we saw that a true work of the Holy Spirit exalts the true Christ. Today, we will continue by looking at another mark of the Spirit’s work. The following material is condensed, adapted and excerpted from Jonathan Edwards’s The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God. It Opposes Satan’s Interests “You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.” (1 John 4:4-5)...

    How can a true work of the Holy Spirit be distinguished from a false one? From a careful study of 1 John 4, the great theologian and pastor Jonathan Edwards was able to identify five distinguishing characteristics of the Holy Spirit’s work. In short, a true work of the Holy Spirit: (1) Exalts the true Christ, (2) Opposes Satan’s interests, (3) Points people to the Scriptures, (4) Elevates truth, and (5) Results in love for God and others. The following material is condensed, adapted and excerpted from Jonathan Edwards’s The Distinguishing Marks of a Work of the Spirit of God....

    Gentleness: The Mark of a Christian Gentleness, so sadly lacking in this world, should be evident in the life of a Christian. What is gentleness, and how can it be a part of your life? by Noel Hornor "I love those dear hearts and gentle people who live in my home town. Because those dear hearts and gentle people will never, ever let you down." The words of this song, written 47 years ago by Bob Hilliard, call to mind a time when the world was (at least in our collective memory) a more neighborly place. Do you sometimes find...

  • US military grounds stealth bomber fleet

    America's entire B-2 stealth bombing fleet, which has played a crucial part in all major conflicts since 1999, has been grounded after one of the jets crashed near a military base in Guam. The crash - the first involving the £610 million plane - was the most expensive single aircraft accident in history. A senior US military source told The Sunday Telegraph that all remaining B-2 stealth bombers were on a "no-fly" order and that there would be no further take-offs until the initial investigation into the crash had been completed. Officials assume the crash was caused by either mechanical...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 23, 2007 – As the national Christmas tree, cut from Vermont’s Green Mountain National Forest, makes its way to Washington, it’s going to spread some holiday spirit at veterans facilities along the way, thanks to the National Association of Realtors. Local realtors will make donations to veterans shelters or a veterans housing fund at each stop on behalf of the organization, Mary Trupo, an NAR spokeswoman, said. The Vermont Association of Realtors also is making donations. “As soon as we heard (about the stops at veterans facilities), we jumped on board to be a part of it,” she...

    Is the Spirit World Real? Do you know for sure whether there really is an evil spirit named Satan? What about his minions called demons? How does all of this affect young people? by Tom Clark In Western cultures today there is a growing fascination with the occult and Satanism, despite the traditional Christian teaching that Satan represents the consummate evil. Statistics show Satanism and Wicca to be among the fastest-growing religions in the United States today. Popular movies make it appear cool to be able to cast spells or call on powers that mere mortals do not possess. The...

    Man: The Dwelling Place of God DEEP INSIDE EVERY MAN there is a private sanctum where dwells the mysterious essence of his being. This far-in reality is that in the man which is what it is of itself, without reference to any other part of the man's complex nature. It is the man's "I Am," a gift from the I AM who created him. The I AM which is God is underived and selfexistent; the "I Am" which is man is derived from God and dependent every moment upon His creative fiat for its continued existence. One is the Creator,...

He wore long, baggy Nike shorts, running shoes and a loose T-shirt with a black dog on the front. He carried a baseball and a baseball glove. His physical therapist, William Haven, followed close behind with a glove of his own. They got into position, precisely 60 feet and 6 inches apart.

He tells of the airplanes that used to land on the beach. He talks about his dog, a black and white dog. Barra lies off the western coast of Scotland, 220 miles from Glasgow. It can only be reached by a lengthy...
