eventually shows up as a 
cultural and societal problem."

  1. Great quote. Too bad the world doesn't "get it."

  3. I don't know what she meant by that. I would use the word 'aspect', not problem - a spiritual aspect that becomes a cultural and societal aspect.

    Dixie Hall was a musician; perhaps she was referring to imusic as a spiritual force that gathered people and communities together.

  4. Yep. It all starts in the heart..."The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9. Matthew 15:19 King James Version (KJV)
    Matt. 15:19 "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies"

  9. Hi Sandi,
    I think the biggest spiritual problem is believing man's doctrine over the doctrine of God. We have to always go back to the scriptures to see if what is preached is truth.

  17. Hi Sandi,

    Indeed and it reminds me of the nature/nurture debate. Thanks for sharing the quote. And thank you for your kind comment on my blog, my nice friend.

  18. Trying to think of the "antidote", what would be a "cultural solution" to eliminate/cure/fix the "spiritual problem"?! Blessings and a good week to you Sandi!!

  19. Hi Sandi, Sometimes I take a break from the blogosphere and then, after a while, come back to see how all I’m following are doing. One thing I’ve learned about Dandelion Tea is the post is going to be thought provoking. I’ve come to expect two possibilities here. One is a very few words that say a lot (this post). The other is a longer story (like your previous post) with a powerful message. Let me just say it’s a pleasure following you. Wishing you and your family the best as we go through the holidays! John

  20. I agree that all cultural and societal issues have their roots as a spiritual issue. Satan does a great job of making those spiritual issues fester until they overflow into your societal interactions.
