On the God Discussion show this Thursday, February 9, we have the privilege of talking with three men who are in high demand for their messages. We hope you can join us.
1st Hour (LIVE) — Marshall Vian Summers – A New Message from God.
For almost 30 years, Marshall Vian Summers has dedicated his life to receiving and quietly teaching “the New Message from God.” The New Message, which spans over 9,000 pages, began with what he says was “a direct encounter with the Unseen Ones, the Angelic Presence who had been guiding and preparing him all along. This encounter forever altered the course of his life and initiated him into a deeper relationship with them, requiring that he surrender his life to God.” Formerly a teacher for the blind, Summers had this encounter in the American Southwest desert when he was 33 years old.
The message is a gentle wake-up call to shed the discord we see all around us, from respect for the environment and respect for one another. Humanity must view itself as a Greater Community instead of as a collection of separate nations and cultures, the New Message says. Religion is part of the human experience and meant to cultivate the desire and the capacity to experience the Divine Presence in one’s life; God – or the Greater Community — is not limited to ancient religious teaching. “Religion,” Summers notes in his writings, “has become now a yoke and a harness for people, requiring them to believe along certain prescribed lines of thought and to behave along certain prescribed lines of behavior. But this is far from the essence of what religion is really for.”
According to the New Message, “The world was ultimately created as a place for the separated to live. It was created, as was the physical universe, by powerful geological forces that were set in motion by the Creator of all life. These forces continue at this moment, they are self-perpetuating, they are changing, and in a certain degree they are chaotic…The Creator of all life has set evolution in motion, and evolution now continues without God managing it. It is self-perpetuating. It is moving, it is evolving. Life evolves to greater levels of complexity and intelligence. Evolution in times of geologic and biologic time is extremely slow. Short of cataclysmic events, it is extremely slow.”

Summers teaches that “world is preparing to emerge into the Greater Community of Worlds and this underlies its evolution and all of its advancements now. That is why conflict is erupting in the world, because those who oppose the evolution of the world will fight against it. Those who wish to further the advancement of the world will attempt to fortify the goodness of humanity and the sense that humanity is one community that must nurture and support itself beyond all division of nation, race, religion, culture and tribe…All this is part of the preparation of the world to emerge into the Greater Community of Worlds, because this represents the evolution of the world.”
Dr. Louis Turi, World-Famous Astrologer.
In a pre-recorded segment bridging the live segments, we’ll hear from Dr. Louis Turi about what he believes the year 2012 will bring … and it’s not the end of the world. With his sense of humor and enthusiastic call for people to tap into universal consciousness, Turi enjoys an international following of the “spiritual but not religious” who are seeking answers beyond the confines of religious dogma. Soon to be featured on The Discovery Channel, Dr. Turi is well known for his appearances on Coast To Coast AM, the BBC in London and other radio and television outlets. His clients include celebrities such as Ivana Trump, Peter Fonda, Gary Busey, Denis Haysbert, John Gray and many others.
2nd Hour (LIVE) — Terry Angel Mason – Civil Rights Advocate and Pulitzer Prize Nominee.
With the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, the timing of our interview with Terry Angel Mason – or Angel, as he prefers to be called – could not be better.
Angel has so many credits to his name that it’s hard to summarize them in a short bio. A minister and spokesperson for gay rights, Mason was recently named the National Black HIV/AIDs Awareness Spokesperson. On February 7, Fox News 5 in San Diego, Angel talked about his role as spokesperson.
In addition to be published in magazines, newspapers and websites around the globe, Angel is author of Love Won't Let Me Be Silent, They Say That I Am Broken, The Dream Keeper, and Get on the Royal Road to Riches!
A survivor of full-blown AIDS and cancer, Mason was selected as Real Health's Magazine Advocate of the Month and featured in www.HealthyBlackMen.org — for the month of December — for World AIDS Day.
Mason's books have touched millions of lives and have been submitted for a Pulitzer Prize and numerous awards, including the Lambda Literary Award and the Stonewall Book Awards. Since his international debut, Mason has sparked worldwide debate about pressing issues affecting African-Americans and the gay and lesbian community. The celebrated blogger and columnist recently published an article about SB 48, (The Fair Education Act; a law that requires schools to include LGBT history), and denounced the black religious community's actions to overturn the bill, citing that their intolerance and support of inequality promotes more bullying, discrimination and violence in the gay community.
