Desert Spirituality for City Folks - Part 9—What’s the Problem?

February 09, 2008 Length: 13:02

What's the problem? What gets in the way of our goal to loving God and others? One monk, Evagrius, tells us "the passions" are our problem. Dr. Nassif explains what "the passions" are and how to fight them. He explains the lifelong battle between "the flesh" versus "the Spirit." If you're a monk, or a city-dweller, this podcast will map out the terrain of our spiritual warfare and show you the way to victory through our baptismal beginnings in Christ.

"I want to thank you for your ministry. I have been listening to AFR for several years now, but it means more to me this year than ever. I am working in the Middle East as part of a multinational peacekeeping force, but I am the only Orthodox Christian on camp. The priests and ministers available to me are Catholic and Protestant. While good men, they can't offer me the Sacraments or church experience I need. When I am most lonely and homesick, I can boot up my laptop and log in to AFR, and my whole outlook is changed in an instant. Being able to hear the words and sounds of my faith, especially here, means more to me than you can ever know. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And God bless you all!"
