    There is a high probability that a self-perpetuating wage-price spiral will develop in the next few years. Households have already become less resistant to paying higher prices and firms have become less resistant to offering higher wages. Prices and wages will continue to spiral upward until the cumulative erosion in inflation-adjusted incomes causes the economy to collapse in recession. It is like the children’s game of musical chairs: Everyone knows the game will end, but they feel compelled to keep racing around the circle at an ever-faster pace hoping their forced exit will leave them in the best possible position—even...

    The brain is one of the mysteries of creation that we are only just starting to understand through science and medicine. As more knowledge about the mechanisms of the brain is uncovered, researchers are also constantly revising their theories about how it works. As we discussed in Chapter 3, an early theory was that depression was caused by a neurotransmitter deficiency in the brain. But science has moved ahead to understanding the brain as functioning primarily through connections between neurons, through how the brain gets wired and rewired, in a process called neuroplasticity. The brain is constantly changing and adapting,...

    01 Scrupulosity, also known as Religious OCD, is a subtype of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in which people experience debilitating obsessions and compulsions about their faith. 02 Jamie's struggles with scrupulosity began in childhood. By high school, she was experiencing intense spiritual anxiety that wouldn’t be diagnosed as OCD for 11 years. 03 Jamie thought her intrusive thoughts were the voice of the Holy Spirit, which validated their contents and gave them control over her sense of morality. 04 At the age of 26, she finally received a proper diagnosis and sought help. While healing, she has been able to hang...

    Western culture is built on foundational myths, many from the ancient Greeks, who built an amazing collection of stories to explain who we are and why we think and feel the way we do. That is, they contain the seeds of modern psychology, which may be why two of the founders of psychology — Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung — often used Greek myths to illustrate the concepts about the mind they were exploring. Creating a brand is fundamentally about understanding what makes consumers tick — knowing where the buttons are that tap into our unconscious so that we identify...
  • Most Pastors Do Not Feel Equipped for Mental Health Issues

    “Pastors cannot be expected to have the same level of skill, training and experience as professional therapists,” said Walter Kim, president of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). “Pastors have a shepherding and counseling role to play, but should refer when people need the next layer of care. Pastors should also play a role in minimizing stigma around seeing therapists.” Several evangelical leaders noted that a key challenge for pastors is discerning when they have both the skill and the necessary time to help, and when they should refer. Most leaders indicated that pastors deal well with mental health issues...

    US Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh says "President Biden's insistance that everyone be vaccinated is essential to restoring economic growth. Right now too many people are afraid to go back to work out of fear of catching COVID. Once everyone is vaccinated this fear will be eradicated. This is not a mandate. It is a reminder to do the right thing if you want to keep your job if you're an employee or be fined if you're an employer." Walsh dismissed emerging evidence of the vaccines' dwindling effectiveness as "beside the point. We're asking everyone to remember when they were...

    I broke a tooth recently, which caused me to look at ways to improve the strength of my teeth. One of the things I decided to do (besides being careful about ingesting processed sugar) was to drink milk again–for the calcium, phosphorous, Vitamin A and D. And for additional protein too as I’ve been lifting heavy weights. And yet, deep down, I knew that there are other ways to get the nutrients I need without having to drink milk. Yet, I kept at it. This morning, like too many mornings I’d care to admit to, I woke up with a...

    "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2Co 3:18) Among the many losses within modern Christianity has been the place of transformation. Nineteenth century revival movements and theology emphasized a single experience that was associated with salvation. Those who concerned themselves with what came later, described growth in the Christian life as “sanctification,” and tended to imply that it was optional. Contemporary Christians have settled for a spiritual life in a plain...

    Why is there always such a push towards "federal programs to solve local problems"? Many of the Federal programs that are touted to solve programs affecting individuals should be on the state level or local level and not the federal level. The money is more "accountable" that way. The big lie about small L "libertarian" is that they're only for anarchy govt, when in actuality they are more for "Distributed Government" Why is this? That is because a lot of localities are no longer vested in local control of their own government as there is a constant human nature to...
