Thou Shalt Not Judge
Judgement; What does this mean? The encyclopedia definition is, "The process of forming an opinion by discerning and comparing". The bible says, "Judge not, lest you be judged", and, "How many times as christians, do we do this?" Are we not to,"judge the sinners?" No, that is not our responsibility. Remember, what Jesus said, " I have not come to judge, but to save those that are lost". Jesus, the great I AM, did not come here to judge us by what we looked like. He, came here to save us from sin. So how, "If the great I AM accepts us, can we not do the same for others?"
We judge people everyday by what they look like, how they act, and how we preceive them. We do this, not out of love, but out of fear and to feel superior to them. This, is not, the way to show "love" or "acceptance". God, commands, "That we preach his word to all nations". He did not say, "Only to those that look right, or to those we find appealing". To many times, we decide someones selfworth by how we preceive them, but not by, how God views that person. Why, do we shun some people, but talk to others? Why, do we only talk to people, who are already saved and not to those, who need to here the good word. It is easier, to "judge" a person than it is to talk to them. Maybe, if we as christians, talk to people more often, we could help them receive salvation through Christ Jesus.
That, my friends, is the purpose of Gods people, to help those that are lost. Are we wrong, in telling people that they are living in sin, no, I do not think so. It, is our obligation to help lead them to Jesus Christ. Can we do this as a church body without "judgement"? Yes, by talking to people about the saving grace of Jesus christ. By telling them, what it is to accept Jesus as their Lord and Personal savior. If we did this more often, instead of judging, "How many more souls would we save?" How, many people in this "ignorant" and "evil" world, would feel accepted and not rejected. So, I call to you for help, to remember, that we have all been judged by God, and found guilty of sin. That all of us at some time in our lives, have felt rejected and lost. If it, had not been for someone showing us, or helping us, we would not know the saving power of grace. John 5:22,23; For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgements to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Amen

Elvis Left the Building and Moved in with Me!
Years ago no matter where I lived, whether a house was new or not, I'd experience doors opening and closing by themselves, items disappearing only to be found later in the strangest places, seeing people others didn't and being touched by unseen hands. Not only was this unnerving; it was also really frustrating! Each time I moved I'd think "Here we go again! What surprises are in store for me this time?"As luck would have it I eventually learned several, priceless techniques on how to 'cleanse' my homes on an energy level.
Why Sit Here Until I Die?
The bible tells a story about four men who sat at the entrance of the city's gate dying with leprosy, an incurable disease which causes terribly visible swelling and sores on the skin, only then to eat inward to the bones. Because of this contagious and incurable disease, these lepers sat outside of the city because they were not permitted to live within the city.
Do You Really Want to Know the Truth?
Back in 1992, Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise co-starred in a movie entitled A Few Good Men. The high point of the film, in my view, was a classic, heated exchange between their characters, during which Kaffee (the military attorney played by Cruise) says: "I want the truth," and Col.
Come on now!? Really? This is going too far, you might say. Eastern philosophy tells us there are seven layers of manifest physicality and spirituality.
If You Want Healing Step Out of the Boat
Did you happen to see the made-for-tv movie, "Jesus," that first aired in 2000? I especially was moved by the scene of Peter stepping out of the boat to walk on the water to Jesus.It was during a storm in the dark of night.

Be Aware of the Supreme Deceiver (Part 1)
One cannot read the account of Benhadad and Hazael in God's word not be overcome by a certain sense of sadness. You recall Benhadad was ill and sent Hazael to the prophet Elisha to make inquiries regarding his recovery.

Where Are You, God?
Do you ever have one of those days when you wonder if God is really there? Does he really exist? If he does, then why can't you see Him or even sense His presence? Why do you feel so desolate, so alone? I was in that place a few days ago.I stood at my window facing south on a cold winter's day.

Now, we all know that we shouldn't be lead by our emotions, right?But in saying that lies a paradox, even though we are not mean't to be lead by our emotions, in the end, we always will be.The reason is that whenever there is a struggle between will power and emotion, our emotions will win hands down every single time.
Let Your Will, Not Mine, Be Done
Can I be honest with you? There are days when I just don't feel like getting up in the morning. I'm noticing this a lot lately because the weather is changing and it's pretty cold early in the morning when I awake to start my day.
Your Attitude Determines Your Future
Do you realize you are creating your future by the very attitude you posses?Take a look at Proverbs 15:15. The Amplified Bible says it this way, "All the days of the desponding afflicted are made evil (by anxious thoughts and foreboding), but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast (regardless of circumstances).
Integrity and Spirituality
The concept of integrity has arisen often in discussions of spirituality. What do we mean however when we invoke this concept in this context? What is the role of integrity in spirituality? How will we know it when we encounter it? More importantly what will be the consequence to us if we choose to remain ignorant of its crucial importance as a foundation stone to our spiritual enlightenment? Here I intend to address these questions and to give a fresh perspective on how to achieve what I will define as Spiritual Integrity.
Honoring the Sacred in Everyday Life
How many of us rush blindly through our days, fall into bed exhausted, and wake up the next morning to do it all over again? For many of us, our lives are composed of millions of meaningless moments, all strung together -- perhaps with a sprinkling of sacred moments mixed in. I'm sure you can think of a few sacred moments in your own life.
Animal Spirit Guides & Totems
Animal spirit totems can be viewed in different ways according to each of us as individual people. The basic principle of an animal totem is an animal spirit who gives us insight into ourselves, a glimpse of the divine powers at work in our world, and can transcend us to a place of healing for ourselves and other people.
