Comes a time, and many times, that we have to challenge what we believe and
how the "rules" are working for us... Often the rules need to be modified or
There is an old saying I like which goes something like this...
"Rules are for blind obedience by fools, and for guidence for the wise."
Though many would like to put themselves in the later category, I can assure
you its in pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that wise in one thing is not
necessarily wise at another.
I have been brought up in the Catholic Church, and then went through
adelesence in a "half god" state, later going into to Pentecostal ideas,
having a big tug of war about it with guilt and shame and the continual
failure of falling short. The demon on the back was the idea that I had to
be such and such a way and do such and such a thing. When I looked at all
of it from the "bigger perspective" of eternity and the goals of God, with
the Loving Character of Justice, I realised that it was a distortion of that
ideal that having my mind on doing the greater good as an "attitude" was the
main thing. Apostle Paul said, that all things were permissable but not all
things were edifying.
The message of the Love of God has been distorted by many religions to keep
us in guilt... but if you look at Gods perfect will, it is for all of us to
simply turn to him and know him and his love and he will forgive us. It is
the guilt that keeps us separated and doing things with a "rebellious"
attitude... and the fact is that most things we can do with thanks giving in
Welcome to the journey to dare to believe in the Greater Good of God... you
will find that as you give up the distortions of religion, that you will
find the "freedom" and "peace" from the "law of liberty" than you ever felt
it before... The fact is God loves everyone, and we are all his children.
I found that even when I was a christian and sought the Lord with prayer and
fasting for days, that I was getting ideas in my head that God loved
everyone, and LOVE was the most important thing in the whole universe...
When you look at the bible and see the basic messages which cannot be
contradicted, you will find that God says he will forgive us if we turn to
him... We find that God loves us all and wants us to rejoin with him and
become ONE with him, which is what the reincarnation religions teach. The
goal of all of them is that we reunite with God... The major key is that we
need to know that He loves us, and that he has washed us clean so that we no
longer need to feel guilt or any other negative which would keep us
seperated from God... It means that Gods will is for all to do this, and as
such all are forgiven, and religion has kept this from us with all their
"guilt offerings" and so on.
You will find the prophesies of Jesus were to reunite all things back to
God, being the sacrifice of all sacrifices, for those who knew or didnt know
about it... For if there was anything to be paid for mankind, it was Gods
problem and after all, he can do it all very well... So whether I believe in
Jesus Christ or not, it was Gods problem... I like the words of Jesus, how
he said their religion was stopping people from entering the kingdom of
heaven... of the teachings Jesus put forward to teach the principles of Love
and making peace, or healing and sharing in the benefits of an abundent life
with answered prayers.
Every curse can therefore fall away, for you know Gods perfect will is
simply for you to Trust Him and Love Him... then you know that "everything"
is going to be alright...
Just a note on what Jesus said... do not judge others and you will not be
judged... what you sow is what you reap... if God has forgiven you, then
you should also forgive others... for if you are not forgiving of others,
then you cannot be forgiven by God... we are to love our enemies and make
peace. To stop the cycle of aggression and "turn the other cheek"
metaphorically to break the cycle from a "revenge" attack.
Thus we are all brothers and sisters in the spirit of life... God is our
Heavenly Father, and we ourselves are royal desendants of God and sit
ourselves on thrones in spiritual heavenly places. So this means we
ourselves are gods... (psalm 82:6)
So everything else besides, is based on Jesus principle Goldern rules...
Love God and Gods ways of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE with all your being
Love everyone else as you love yourself
Treat everyone how you want to be treated by being the example of treating
So long as you are not hurting anyone else, and that both are in agreement
of their own free wills... then we are not breaking any of Gods laws. The
rest were added by men which only brought bondage and guilt and put us
further from God... Definitely not Gods will...
So fear not... perfect love casts out all fear...
Just imagine unconditional love and be happy and at peace :-)
Consider that those who are not christians yet do the godly things, and
trust in God, are also covered by the love of God. the rest is religious
propaganda based on fear and loyalty to providing your wealth to the
clergy... God doesnt want sheep, he wants those who worship him in spirit
and in truth, because they want to... lip service is as good as no service.
In many ways what I am saying may sound like I am a christian and this is
not so... I believe Jesus was great with what he said... and I weigh it all
up to make practical sense for real investigation and understanding from
many different philosophical angles. All point back to this... God is love
and he loves everyone. Also pointing to the fact that man could not just
leave it alone and had to mess it up by covering up this message with dogma.
Peace is within, and is projected outwardly.
