lulu2's blog listings. Christ,truth,pro-life,science,religion,political,opinion Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/lulu2 The Universal Mind and Christ as Truth Living, and believing, is a journey we all are taking. Some are taking the journey consciously, while others are unconsciously traveling by instinct or past history. Christ's statement of "though you be dead", supports the unconscious following of him, just by belief in who He is, alone.
And at every part of this journey, we use whatever means, unconscious or conscious that brings us a better understanding of ourselves and our relationship to God..
One part of my journey was ...a belief in Universal Consciousness. The nature of the Universal Mind is Omniscience (all knowing), Omnipotence (all powerful), Omnificence (all creative) and Omnipresence (always present). You have access to all knowledge, known and unknown; you have access to an infinite power for which nothing is impossible; you have access to the limitless creativity of the One Creator. All these attributes are present within you at all times in their potential form.
This belief claims you are a piece of God, who has these same qualities. It equalizes all the names man has given God, and makes them all the same. Allah and Christ in this belief are equalized, while at another time, according to the UN triangles group, calls Christ the Planetary God. This belief is also based on the science of energy. And as with everything in life, some truth exists in all of mans beliefs. Energy is of course part of who we are, but it offers us nothing tangible to follow. This belief is neutral in that energy has no conscience. And therefore it promotes the same in those who believe. Its the part of the Bible that says, the Sun shines on the good and the evil. So this belief, would not truly be the same, as to whom they also claim as the Planetary Christ.
And if we really see the qualities it says we gain with this belief...it answers what was sought in Eve's apple eating.
As the journey progresses, so too (if we are consciously seek Christ) will our understandings broaden. And what we believed at one point on the journey, may be left behind to learn more of what is true to us.
For me, Love didn't bring me happiness as much as it brought pain. And because of this understanding, I learned TRUTH to me, was the LOVE I needed. Truth allows for forgiveness and understanding. Without it, all that exists is the lie.
Christ indeed had the energy , and spiritual powers spoken in the Universal Mind. However, His way gave us values, principles, and a command for personal responsibility , something the latter belief did not. His way doesn't equalize evil as the same as GOOD. His truth requires our awareness, not to gain the powers that are God's, but the LOVING TRUTH that opens the door for evil to be forgiven.

Only One Word Unites Us Been thinking a lot lately, about how divided we have become in this country. Mostly, politically. And the conclusion I have come to is, that we have become more concerned with our "rights", while forgetting and giving away our "values".
We have become a country of "rights", "demands" and "false offenses".
More concerned with Entertainment, selfies, and opinions we believe are facts.
 I believe few today, know the difference, between what is a "right", and what are our values?
We have been indoctrinated with political correctness. Which in itself, is a forced idea hoping to... change how people feel. Change doesn't come to people by force, but through understanding, and acceptance. Hence PC correctness is already based on a false premise.
We have individuals complaining about the Cross being offensive, rather than helping our Country carry its own cross. We can no longer claim we are a Country established on principles gotten from a God of Love. For saying we were founded on Judeo Christian values, for some reason causes a stir? What pray tell, is the offense? What pray tell is the replacement for those two religions, which gave the world civil order and a principle of Love?
Division happens when we separate from GOD. It happens in our daily lives, when we feel lonely or empty...It happened in the Garden of Eden, when we chose knowledge of the earth over the Oneness of God. It even happened when Christ Himself was crucified, for that moment of separation on the Cross, when He lost sight of who He was.
When we lose sight of God, we also lose sight of the wholeness of our being. We lose the Oneness in " One Nation Under God". For there is only one WORD that unites all people...and that Word is the Word God.

Politics and Christianity I hear much about can a Christian be a Democrat? Based upon what the Dems claim to believe "compassion towards the underdog", I would have believed the question would have been about being a Republican. You know those people who by their opposition , defines them as uncaring big business lovers.

  And there in a nutshell live the untruths. Neither party should define your Christian character, they never will. Politics began as a matter of commerical trade, and government the source of our peoples territorial protection. Nothing to do with our Soul.

Through the years, government has taken on philosophies that has changed its purpose towards political powers sake, more than for the good of its people.

Power corrupts, it did to Judas, when He wanted Christ to establish a government on earth, rather than a place Judas himself, found beyond his belief.

I believe we need to rethink our governments duties, and limit it, to what it once was. I also believe, we have to choose to be either GOOD CHRISTIANS, or always wanting to be right, political dogs.

We have to realize, government was not founded to be a Charity. That was what churches and houses of worship were for. Churches were over taken by governments power. Believing the church had too much control over men!

 People used to give a tithing to their churches, that would help those in their community in times of need. Yesterday the Admin. asked for their help with the influx of the South American children (illegals or the new word being used refugees) Even that should tell us that government can change a word to suit its needs. Even when it knew in Feb, what was going to be.

I believe, Christ can forgive each of us, for our individual misdeeds and choices. But He doesnt forgive a Government as a whole. His forgiveness looks into the heart of each individual. There is not one heart beating in government business, nor in its choices for what they believe is  best. Each individual heart has its own purpose. Some for power , ego, philosophies, even some that would be completely against the character of God, like with "the ends justify the means". That is man's personal agenda, the philosophy that his power seeks.

Goverment will always do some good, but does more harm in how it has to go about it. Just look at all the hate partisianship instigates!

GOD will always unite us. When something terrible happens in our country or abroad, "we the people" move based on the charity of our hearts. However, when government determines who we are suppose to feel charitable about, there will always live a terrible divide. Why? because government is not the source of our hearts, its the power of our purses. And many times, we are at odds as to what we see is of value.

And lastly, the subject of abortion should make us think not about others, but what do we value as Christians? God allows for all laws we make, but not every law we make, is for His good. And abortion for our God who said He IS LIFE, ought to be a principle we must take seriously. You cant be for Him as Life, and then be willing to kill what He has allowed to concieve. This is the deciding factor of who we are as Chrisitans. This if nothing else, should be our guide. As Christians we should give  far more support to the young women who choose to keep their babies or give them up for adoption. Our healthcare should be in complete support of them.

Politics should never be how you define youself as a Christian. Governments purpose  will never express the principles we are supposed to follow. Abortion and war and two very serious values we must consider. Government tells us no one is above the law, but we will always find someone in government who doesnt live what they say. It's because government contains all of mans sins and goodness, because government is a matter of man. 

And thats the point. Christianity says we are to follow Christ, His purpose lives far beyond the politics of mans power. If you want to seem powerful, do all that the world asks.

If you want to be of Christ, do all He asks of YOU the individual to do, and be.

Never let politics be your definer or replacement.

I Learn , When I Return to My Quiet Place I believe what we all need, is more of Christ in our lives. Daily, I examine both my purpose and my motives. I live my life in a self examined world. Almost on a daily basis , I see my purpose not questioned, but greater understood. Fequently I say " Today I realized my purpose". Because although I know my purpose is to write about how much I love my Christ/God. I also am aware that those who read my words, also have a purpose in reading them.

  Its not for me to judge who will listen to the words I share. Or what they will do about them. And this I believe is my newest revelation. That the words I speak dont truly belong to me, they are inspired by my love of Him.

The words I write, are for Christ to use in those who may read them. It should have nothing to do with me. What I realized in coming home to my quiet place, was that I had a fear. The fear was, that my words would elevate me more, with those who know me. Rather than see Him! It was that, that made me want to leave those I love.

 I feared the idea of making a false God before Him. That the words I shared would place the light more on me, than on He who sent me.  Who am I to believe I could lead people to God, when its each heart that is given its purpose in Him? All I can do is express how I feel. All I can do is express how much He has touched my heart. How much He has been my strength, when I thought all I loved was lost. I still need this quiet place to express my love, but with no expectations or thought of anything more.
