This link is a series of sermons/lectures which I think some of the believers here will find very very interesting as the speaker covers subjects not ordinarily taught by ministers or even other church members and shows how current events or other events going back in history are related to what is happening today and affect us.http://midnightmessenger.com/Conrad_Jarrell.html
Conrad Jarrell is a minister in a small church in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have never heard a minister speak as does Elder Conrad Jarrell or tie so many seemingly unrelated topics/subjects into a relationship that one can see with the eyes of the spirit.
I was particularly stunned with the topic line last night on my MP3 Player on Lesson 43 and 44 having to do with modern philosophies and policies/leadership...even public education. What Elder Jarrell speaks of explains alot to the spiritually aware of how and why you get the responses from unbelievers that you do.
Lesson 43 on Cognitive dissonance and 44 on Baruch Spinoza.
Recordings like this is something I enjoy listening to when I am working about the garage and out in the yard to help pass the time. I will be cutting my grass today and also my Elderly Parents grass so you know my MP3 Player will be accompanying me.
Nonetheless..I found lesson 43 and 44 to be particularly applicable today thought most of the lessons on this list are applicable in one form or another and certainly educational. What you do in listening to this series is pick up a valuable piece of information and thinking in one lesson and another in another lesson and so on. Eventually you have a whole and bigger picture/canvas..not just disconnected events and pieces of information's. You can begin to see how many of them are related..not disconnected and the results they have brought about.
It is ministers and speakers like this who caused me to catch on to alot of what passes for church leaders today and how they are so misleading the flock as to what is going on around them and removing the Salt from Believers and replacing it with sugar.
I will be going back through most of them over time and have bookmarked them in my favorites column.
I was particularly stunned in learning of a concept called "Transhumanism" and the advances in technology as to what science is attempting to do to create a certain kind of human by applying science to the philosophy of Transhumanism.
Elder Jarrell actually speaks of this in lessons prior to lesson 29 as a introduction to the topic but continues on in more detail in the lesson on Transhuman. Very interesting and telling of what is coming by the "Religion of Science."
Enjoy and learn,
