"The Art Of Being Yourself"
The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for July 30, 2017
This past few weeks I have found my mind filled with many
conflicting thoughts about Christians. My intention each day
is to not allow negativity to dominate my thoughts about anything or
anyone. Yet, when I read in the Media reports of what
"some" Christians leaders are doing in this country it is
difficult to overcome the negative thoughts that come to me as a
natural consequence. There are thousands of Christian sects in
the world so it would be wrong on many levels to think negatively of
Christianity as a whole. However, "some" of
the American Christian leaders seem to be the ones most willing to
debase the teachings of Jesus in order to further their
come to believe that the "Course in Miracles" ... a
teaching that most Christian leaders would say is not Christian ...
is more in tune with the philosophy of Jesus than those teachings
that claim to be Christian. Here is some evidence of this
1. It teaches a lot about Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God the
2. It talks frequently about certain teachings that are found
in the Bible.
3. It focuses a lot on the fundamental Christian idea of
4. It guides us to have a very personal relationship with
5. It teaches us how to communicate with the Holy Spirit.
6. It encourages us to pray and teaches us how to do it.
Now, I am not advocating for the "Course in Miracles" but
I do believe that most Christians would benefit from the study of
this body of work if they truly want to understand the profound
spiritual teachings of Jesus. However, I doubt very seriously
if most Christians would consider doing so. One of the most
powerful "tools" of religious leaders is to
"hold" their congregations to their own "sect's
teachings" and the Catholic Church teaches that it is a
"menial sin" to read anything that contradicts
Catholicism. Even the very popular Joel Osteen makes a declaration
after each of his presentations for his audience to hold to the
false idea that Jesus is our savior. On the surface this may
not seem so bad but in truth it is a continuous perpetuation of the
false ideas about Jesus that have kept the faithful from truly
realizing who the man they worship truly was.
For the love of Jesus wouldn't one
think that Christians would have a passion for knowledge of
Jesus? To know who he truly was? To know what he was
truly trying to teach us? Jesus the healer, the peacemaker the
radical, the revolutionary? Who is he to those who claim that
he is their savior and who ridiculously declare that he died for
their sins? There is rarely any of the "truth that sets
us free" in most of the Christian sermons heard on Sunday
until we can impress upon our mind that the "kingdom of G-d is
within us" and the truth that the "kingdom of heaven is at
hand" ... teachings that reflect the love of Jesus for mankind
... will we ever realize the "Christ" that gives us the
strength to do all things that we desire to accomplish. This
"Christ" is the Spirit, Intelligence and Power of G-d
within each and every one of us ... this truth is not gained through
religion, but through a passion to be in tune with the Infinite; a
passion to truly understand the philosophy of Jesus; and a passion
to "be in the world but not of the world". For the
love of Jesus' willingness to stand for this truth ... to surrender
to this truth ... should be an inspiration to all of mankind!
And so it is!
