Book excerpt: A Landmark Book by Emmanuel Opiughie. Human life is an intentional creation of God, discover its divine intention. Many have lost the essence of living, groping through life as one in the dark. The rise in anxiety, depression, self abuse and hopelessness in the world has become alarming. How has life become so futile? God made life and called it good, but we only find this goodness in His will.

True essence in living starts and is fulfilled in God, your Creator, and His intention for a fulfilled life is spelt out in His word. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand this, life will never make any sense. In the end all will appear as vain. This book will help you establish the foundational knowledge of the divine intention for life. This truth will break off the yolk of fear, depression, emptiness, self abuse and hopelessness. Indeed the truth sets free. Dig deep! This book is purposely written to be brief and direct to help you tap without any unclarity into the truth within. Discover true living!

This book was released on with total page 998 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is more than a book. It is alive with knowledge and devotion; thus it has the power to change your life for the better. Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India's spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries. In translating the Gita, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the intended meaning of Krishna's words, and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of the ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as an exciting opportunity for self-improvement and spiritual fulfillment. The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and His dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death? In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.

This book was released on 2020-02-17 with total page 206 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is a very brief reflection on the readings of Sundays and solemnities of the churches' liturgical calendar, year A. In order not to make this just "a mere weekly homily", but a full book for all time, the thematical approach has been employed for each homily. However, these themes are not exhaustive. Rather, they are simply meant to help us have an idea of what could be the central message of each celebration. Brief stories and other biblical passages, quotes, popular sayings, and even personal life experiences have been employed in order to make the message clearer and more comprehensible to all. Above all, I have tried to keep it short and simple. However, great care has been taken in doing this by keeping in mind the rules of good biblical interpretation, without down playing the meaning and message of the individual readings. Hence, this book follows both the catechetical and exegetical approach. Some comments from readers from: https://wordpress.com/coments/all/frcanice.com Father, your reflections are brief, inspiring and challenging. Keep on helping us. - Fr. Karoli Lwanga, Kisii Diocese, Kenya Thank you very much Fr. Canice for your rich homilies. It is a great help to me as I always read it as I prepare my weekly sermons.

Download or read UNIVERSAL MORAL LAWS CREATIONAL AND THEISTIC FOUNDATIONS OF MORALITY AND ETHICS PDF, written by Propfessor Yusuf Turaki and published by Otakada Inc. This book was released on with total page 301 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Normativity and the Lawfulness of the Universe There are laws governing the existence of creation. Life itself is governed by principles that are instructions which the Creator has put in place to enable the creatures appreciate and enjoy life. But when these laws are flaunted creation begins to groan and creatures start to suffer. According to the laws of creation when a manufacturer creates, he invents or produces a manual to guide the user of such products on the best way to maximize the benefits of the product. As the chief Creator of the earth, God has also given us a manual on how best to utilize the potentials and benefits of the earth. It is the neglect of these laws and instructions in the Creator’s manual (The Bible) that has brought deformation to our society and has impoverished nations bringing untold hardship to people (Pastor Sunday Adelaja, Nation Builder, A Journal of the AiMP Network Ltd/Gte, Volume 1 Number 1, 2008). This book is about the universal moral laws described by Pastor Sunday Adelaja above, as well as their roots or foundations, scope and impact upon all moral agents and the whole universe. The universe or creation exists as an ordered system instituted by its Creator. It has laws that govern its existence, and these laws are universal in scope. The entire universe is immersed, subsumed and governed by these universal laws. Hence the necessity of examining the normativity and lawfulness (van der Walt 2008:128) of the universe. We must also examine the meaning and purpose of the universe, creation and human life itself. This quest has been addressed historically by many scholars, philosophers, scientists, theologians and the religious people. Our approach is not to seek answers and meanings in their arguments or wisdom, but to show how they have in one way or the other not given us adequate and satisfactory answers to the ultimate source of anchoring meaning and purpose of life, law and order. In classical studies, some scholars have approached this subject through metaphysics/philosophy, some through science, and some through religion/theology. Our intention is not to undertake a study of intellectual history of each category, especially of Western, oriental or African traditions, in order to prove their success or failure in addressing the main subject of this book, the universal moral laws. Speculative philosophies, theologies, naturalism, scienticism and historicism of these traditions abound but have not in any way provided adequate solutions to the questions of normativity or lawfulness of the universe or creation. It is the weak and confused human response to this universal normativity and lawfulness of the universe that has revealed the weaknesses and inadequacies of some of these classical approaches and methodologies. Langdon Gilkey identified three basic approaches to the question of universal normativity and lawfulness of the universe (Gilkey 1959:4-25). I have modified his sets of questions to suit our approach and understanding. Some scholars seek answers to this question through science by raising scientific questions about the universe. But science is a limited form of knowledge. Science deals with mainly causal relationships of created orders or things (Gilkey 1959:7-9). According to science, there is no knowing outside of this created spectrum of the laws of cause and effect. Reducing all the questions of normativity, lawfulness, morality and ethics and origins to finding scientific causal relationships is a serious fallacy—a scientific fallacy. A scientific fallacy seeks to answer the questions of origins, normativity or lawfulness without God the Creator. This study refutes anchoring the ultimate source of origins and universal moral laws on the scientific principles of cause and effect. There is a proper place and role of science as it is the study of parts of God’s creation, that is, the creational or universal physical laws. We exceed the limits of science, however, whenever it is used as foundations of beliefs, morality and ethics and the ultimate source of meaning, purpose and origins. We cannot absolutise science as the only valid source of knowledge. The second set of questionings is referred to by Gilkey as metaphysical or philosophical (Gilkey 1959:9-10). Metaphysical or philosophical questions are different from the scientific questions. A metaphysician or philosopher looks at the entire universe and seeks to decipher its ultimate meaning or purpose and sometimes, just like in science, may even venture to postulate some answers to the questions of origins. What meaning or purpose lies behind the physical and observable universe? Since the goal of metaphysics or philosophy, is to find the ultimate meaning or purpose, this meaning or purpose could be anything, a personal or a non-personal being or a thing. In speculative philosophy, the logic of finding an ultimate source of meaning or purpose may not be based upon a person, or Creator, but on an abstract idea. An idea could be God or God could be an idea. A metaphysical or philosophical fallacy attributes origins, meaning or purpose of the universe and life to an abstract idea and not necessarily God the Creator. Blaise Paschal contrasted the God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob from the god of philosophers and scholars (Paschal 1989:41). This study refutes anchoring the ultimate source of origins, meaning and purpose, and universal moral laws on metaphysical or philosophical principles that are derived from speculative or abstract ideas and not ultimately upon God the Creator. Human speculative reason in metaphysics or philosophy is also limited in scope. It only gives partial knowledge. We exceed the limits of metaphysics or philosophy whenever it is used as the only valid source of knowledge. Human speculative reason is a false place to start seeking answers to the ultimate questions of creation and life. The third set of questioning is referred to by Gilkey as theological or religious (Gilkey 1959:19-25). These are not scientific questions of causal relationships, or metaphysical/philosophical questions of meaning and purpose, but ultimate questions of existence, the reason of creation by the Creator and finding the will of God the Creator. Such questions about the ground of our contingent being, about a transcendent purpose for our short life, and about the Lords of our destiny, are a part of the life of us all. Here we ask why we exist, and on what power that existence depends (Gilkey 1959:20). Theological or religious questions grip our souls. We ask ultimate questions about our existence and being, not dispassionately as in the case of science or in philosophy about things in general that may not necessarily affect our lives ultimately. Theology/religion asserts that the ultimate answers to the reality of our being and existence are rooted ultimately in God the Creator. This God is a Living Being and Creator, not the god of philosophers and scholars. Scientists and philosophers have overly relied on reason and senses as the source of knowledge. Philosophy depends upon human reason, while science depends upon the human senses. There is a proper use of both human reason and human senses, but they cannot be elevated to displace God altogether. On these two human faculties, Blaise Paschal has this to say: Man is so fashioned that he has no reliable guide of truth, but instead has many to guide him falsely. But the most intriguing source of his errors is the struggle between the senses and reason…the two so-called principles of truth—reason and senses—are not only not genuine but are engaged in mutual deception. Through false appearances the senses deceive reason. And just as they trick the soul, they are in turn tricked by it…the senses are influenced by the passions, which produce false impressions (Paschal 1989:58).

Download or read Plotinus the Platonist PDF, written by David J. Yount and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2014-10-23 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this insightful new book David J. Yount argues, against received wisdom, that there are no essential differences between the metaphysics of Plato and Plotinus. Yount covers the core principles of Plotinian thought: The One or Good, Intellect, and All-Soul (the Three Hypostases), Beauty, God(s), Forms, Emanation, Matter, and Evil. After addressing the interpretive issues that surround the authenticity of Plato's works, Plotinus: The Platonist deftly argues against the commonly held view that Plotinus is best interpreted as a Neo-Platonist, proposing he should be thought of as a Platonist proper. Yount presents thorough explanations and quotations from the works of each classical philosopher to demonstrate his thesis, concluding comprehensively that Plato and Plotinus do not essentially differ on their metaphysical conceptions. This is an ideal text for Plato and Plotinus scholars and academics, and excellent supplementary reading for upper-level undergraduates students and postgraduate students of ancient philosophy.
