Or go to SchoolOflaughs. By honing her skills talking to those groups she also found her sense of humor.

Using that humor she discovered she could connect and break the ice with the families she was helping. Her comedy shined bright at a conference she had helped plan. As the conference neared, Lisa and the event planners realized that some of the subject matter was going to be pretty heavy. They decided someone should lighten up the group between messages. Manning encourages the use of mantras to empty the mind. Manning promotes silent meditation. As noted earlier, he once spent six months in isolation in a cave in Spain.

He meditates in silence each day.

He spends eight days a year at a Jesuit retreat center in Colorado during which he speaks only 45 minutes each day. His spiritual director is a Dominican nun.

Emerging church leader Spencer Burke says that this is how he was led into Roman Catholic mysticism: Instead, we should just sit and let God speak to us. Teresa of Avila. The more I read, the more intrigued I became. Contemplative spirituality seemed to open up a whole new way for me to understand and experience God. This is blind mysticism.

Manning claims to receive visions and special messages from God through his meditative practices. Manning promotes the dangerous practice of visualization, instructing people to visualize what Jesus might have looked like The Ragamuffin Gospel , p.

This is vain idolatry. It also appears that Manning believes in universalism and the divinity of man.

She is the founder of The School for Contemplation and believes that God is within every human being. She said: I AM, of course, is one of the biblical names of God. Why would Manning recommend Bruteau with no warning if he does not agree with this blasphemy?

Merton was a Trappist monk who promoted the integration of Zen Buddhism and Christianity. William Shannon was very bold in his rejection of the God of the Bible: He is the God of Noah who sees people deep in sin, repents that He made them and resolves to destroy them. He is the God of the desert who sends snakes to bite His people because they murmured against Him. He is the God of David who practically decimates a people. He is the God who exacts the last drop of blood from His Son, so that His just anger, evoked by sin, may be appeased.

This God whose moods alternate between graciousness and fierce anger. In The Ragamuffin Gospel Manning says: That is not the gospel of grace; that is the gospel of unconditional universalism. The true gospel is that whosever believes in Christ will be saved John 3: Steindl-Rast, a contemplative Roman Catholic priest, said: Manning quotes Matthew Fox approvingly in at least two of his books, Lion and Lamb p.

Fox says: Since Manning gives glowing recommendations for these people and offers no warning to his readers about their universalism it appears that he holds the same heresy. In his books The Signature of Jesus and Gentle Revolutionaries Manning describes a dream he has had about judgment day. He sees Adolf Hitler and Hugh Hefner founder of Playboy magazine and himself and others going before God to be judged, but God just takes them by the hand and walks them home.

The implication is that everyone is accepted by God through grace, regardless of whether they repent and believe the gospel and have a born again experience. Manning is supportive of the homosexual agenda.

As we have seen, Manning believes that homosexuals should be accepted and not required to repent of their sin. A phobia is an unreasonable fear of something, in this case, homosexuality.

In fact, according to Manning, one of the most serious moral issues of our day is the rejection of homosexuality on the part of Bible believers. Consider what Paul said about it: It's about Trump, stupid by digby Ron Brownstein looks the latest numbers and has bad news for Trump and Democrats who don't want to really run against him.


The second problem is even more formidable and may represent the biggest obstacle to winning a second term: His polarizing approach to the presidency is alienating an unusually large number of voters satisfied with the economy. He did dutifully tick off a list of economic accomplishments in his speech, but only after an hour of splenetic reliving of old grievances about the Robert Mueller investigation, the media, and Hillary Clinton.

He demonized immigrants with sweeping condemnations. He raged, blustered, and summoned his supporters to a battle for survival against Democratic opponents, who he portrayed as not only misguided on policy but as fundamentally un-American in their aims. In all these ways, Trump attempted to pump up his base by acting in exactly the manner that pushes away so many voters who are content with the economy but disenchanted with his behavior.

The result is that Trump attracts much less support than his predecessors did—in terms of approval rating and potential support for reelection—among voters who say they are satisfied with the economy.

In a survey, then-President George W. Bush drew positive job-approval ratings from 71 percent of Americans who said they were satisfied with the economy, according to figures provided by Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican firm that co-directs the survey with the Democratic firm Hart-Garin Research.

Among those voters, fully 41 percent disapproved.Contemplative prayer is nothing other than coming into consciousness of what is already there. I will only endorse products, companies, and services that I have found worthy of my time and opinion.
