JoelOsteen: Your Faith Activates God's Power
I want to talk to you today about "Activating faith and not fear". All through the day we have the choice to believe that either God is in control and good things are in store, or we can go around worried, negative, I hear people say, "I'm afraid I'm going to get laid off. I'm afraid my marriage is not going to last. I'm afraid my children are going to get into trouble". They don't realize it, but they're activating fear instead of faith. Fear and faith have something in common. They both ask us to believe something is going to happen that we cannot see. Fear says that pain in your grandmother died from. It's going to be the end of you. Faith says that pain is not permanent, it's only temporary. Fear says business is slow, you're going to go under. Faith says God is supplying all of my needs. Fear says you've been through so much, you're never going to really be happy again. Faith says my best days are still out in front of me.https://sermons.love/joel-osteen/3236-joel-osteen-activate-faith-not-fear.html

The five major world religions
It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like ‘Where do we come from?’ and ‘How do I live a life of meaning?’ These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that’s not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-five-major-world-religions-john-bellaimey

Manifesting your dreams using the Law of Attractio
While it's true that the first step to using the law of attraction is shifting to more positive way of thinking, the reason people give up working with the law of attraction is that they believe that if they start thinking positive thoughts, then all their dreams will manifest. The law of attraction is not a magic wand. Because the brain preferentially scans and stores negative experiences, we have to consciously, habitually build the positive mental muscle. We all have layers and layers of stories, limiting beliefs, fears and blocks that have become the interior landscape of our minds and cannot be changed overnight just by thinking positive thoughts. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-16150/9-habits-to-manifest-your-dreams-using-the-law-of-attraction.html

Miracles that Science cannot explain
Many Christians have given up believing in miracles. For them, the age of miracles belongs to the early church, when awe-inspiring events—like Moses parting the red sea, the virgin birth, and Jesus rising from the dead—confirmed the authenticity and divine nature of God and Jesus. But just because we don’t see phenomena of biblical proportions occurring today does not mean that God has left the business of miracles. From second chances at life to scientifically unexplained mysteries, these real-life stories are powerful reminders that God is at work in modern times, and that we must never give up hope and faith. http://www.beliefnet.com/inspiration/7-modern-miracles-that-science-cant-explain.aspx

Pope Francis Condemns Abortion
Pope Francis reiterated Saturday that abortion is unacceptable, saying its use amounted to the hiring of a "paid killer". "Is it lawful to eliminate a human life to resolve a problem? It is lawful to hire a paid killer to resolve a problem?" Pope Francis asked during a conference at the Vatican on the use of abortion when the unborn child is found to have a serious illness.https://www.sbs.com.au/news/pope-francis-condemns-abortion-as-use-of-paid-killer?fbclid=IwAR3TvE13BMrTGb6_VmWendkbpvSIZ_OEK4fCU0vTWXwfs3m3-LNLc0ZggEI
