( Ponder this)... A parable, or an allegory story
designed to illustrate or teach a moral lesson...to convey a
meaning indirectly by use of comparison.)
"Ponder these words carefully."........The Divine words tell
us precisely...what you see is not what is meant...'They look
and look, but do not see.'
This is a truth that has confused and bewildered the world.
Many comprehend not their understanding, man's imagination
has polluted God's 'inspiration' of...in Spirit and Truth."

"Only if inclined to do so. ( share )..curious as to an observation within the pages of CC...
pertaining to the ratio of married...not married...separated. I certainly have not researched
the beginning inception of CC. ( best site I have stumbled upon )....from this side of the 'glass'...
needless to say...been around the block...couple of times...:)...married at nineteen...three children...
divorced nine years later... ( jealousy )...five years later, God BLESSED me with a precious gift...'AMEN'...:)
My wife and I have a bond of now...forty six years!.......Love is a splendor and heartache of many things.
I have learned our essential ingredient's are and have been..#1..honesty & willingness to change..#2..acceptance of ourflaws..#3..forgiveness of wrong doings.
My wife..raised devout Catholic.. myself, Protestant. ( one daughter now forty three ) have raised a grandson for twenty one years..( by the grace of God )
We have not nor do not attend any 'church' or read the Bible...just a fact of our life. And...so WHAT
is it that makes or breaks a marriage...I firmly believe...only God knows. Is not life of many unknown things.
I might as well rant on...:)..( boredom is a lack of interest )..Now over two decades since I made the decision
to turn my life over to God's care..Thank you Lord!...during this time, many broken lives have crossed my path,
for as God has led it to be...I am grateful of my spiritual 'awareness'...Praise God.
And..now, why all of this testimony...of all things facing these restless times..are not our lives and lives
of our family of utmost importance..yes!..We must come together with a firmer grip with our relationship
with our Lord God. The entirety of God's 'INSPIRATION'..of words...are of what value...so long as 'words'
are not APPLIED AND PUT INTO ACTION OF ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOR...I need it, you need it..
each of us must strive to better serve God..only then can we better serve and help one another...many know
about God..is it not past time to know OF GOD...within ones own self..shall the Kingdom of God...'to be'.
I have been 'inspired' through the Holy Spirt...'Praise God'
Open fellowship sharing is always...welcome!
'Bingo'..believe I need God..Ok...:)....love..peace..we all need God.

"Religion can be defined as “belief in God or gods to be worshipped, usually expressed in conduct and
ritual” or “any specific system of belief, worship, etc., often involving a code of ethics.” Spirituality
can be defined as “the quality or fact of being spiritual, non-physical” or “predominantly spiritual
character as shown in thought, life, etc.; spiritual tendency or tone.” To put it briefly, religion is a
set of beliefs and rituals that claim to get a person in a right relationship with God, and spirituality
is a focus on spiritual things and the spiritual world instead of physical/earthly things.
The most common misconception about religion is that Christianity is just another religion like Islam,

Judaism, Hinduism, etc. Sadly, many who claim to be adherents of Christianity do practice
Christianity as if it were a religion. To many, Christianity is nothing more than a set of rules and
rituals that a person has to observe in order to go to heaven after death. That is not true
Christianity. True Christianity is not a religion; rather, it is having a right relationship with God by
receiving Jesus Christ as the Savior-Messiah, by grace through faith. Yes, Christianity does have
“rituals” to observe (e.g., baptism and communion). Yes, Christianity does have “rules” to follow
(e.g., do not murder, love one another, etc.). However, these rituals and rules are not the essence
of Christianity. The rituals and rules of Christianity are the result of salvation. When we receive
salvation through Jesus Christ, we are baptized as a proclamation of that faith. We observe
communion in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice. We follow a list of do’s and don’ts out of love for
God and gratitude for what He has done."
"What is the difference between belief and faith?
Belief is a firmly held opinion or a strong confidence whereas faith is a strong religious belief. Belief

is based on probability or chance whereas faith is not based on probability at all. Belief depends on
proof whereas Faith is not. Belief is centered in faith whereas Faith is centered in trust.
True spirituality is the fruit that the Holy Spirit produces in a person’s life: love, joy, peace,

patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Spirituality is all about

becoming more like God, who is spirit and having our character conformed to His image."
"Praise God'

"Modern Lives of Jesus are too general in their scope. They aim at influencing, by giving a complete impression of the life of Jesus, a whole community. But the historical Jesus, as He is depicted in the Gospels, influenced individuals by the individual word. They understood Him so far as it was necessary for them to understand, without forming any conception of His life as a whole, since this in its ultimate aims remained a mystery even for the disciples.
Because it is thus preoccupied with the general, the universal, modern theology is determined to find its world-accepting ethic in the teaching of Jesus. Therein lies its weakness. The world affirms itself automatically; the modern spirit cannot but affirm it. But why on that account abolish the conflict between modern life, with the world-affirming spirit which inspires it as a whole, and the world-negating spirit of Jesus? Why spare the spirit of the individual man its appointed task of fighting its way through the world-negation of Jesus, of contending with Him at every step over the value of material and intellectual goods—a conflict in which it may never rest? For the general, for the institutions of society, the rule is: affirmation of the world, in conscious opposition to the view of Jesus, on the ground that the world has affirmed itself! This general affirmation of the world, however, if it is to be Christian, must in the individual spirit be Christianised and transfigured by the personal rejection of the world which is preached in the sayings of Jesus. It is only by means of the tension thus set up that religious energy can be communicated to our time. There was a danger that modern theology, for the sake of peace, would deny the world-negation in the sayings of Jesus, with which Protestantism was out of sympathy, and thus unstring the bow and make Protestantism a mere sociological instead of a religious force. There was perhaps also a danger of inward insincerity in the fact that it refused to admit to itself and others that it maintained its affirmation of the world in opposition to the sayings of Jesus, simply because it could not do otherwise.
For that reason it is a good thing that the true historical Jesus should overthrow the modern Jesus, should rise up against the modern spirit and send upon earth, not peace, but a sword. He was not teacher, not a casuist; He was an imperious ruler. It was because He was so in His inmost being that He could think of Himself as the Son of Man. That was only the temporally conditioned expression of the fact that He was an authoritative ruler. The names in which men expressed their recognition of Him as such, Messiah, Son of Man, Son of God, have become for us historical parables. We can find no designation which expresses what He is for us.
He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, as of old, by the lake-side, He came to those men who knew Him not. He speaks to us the same word: "Follow thou me!" and sets us to the tasks which He has to fulfil for our time. He commands. And to those who obey Him, whether they be wise or simple, He will reveal Himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings which they shall pass through in His fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience Who He is."
'Praise God'

"And there shall be a great 'FALLING AWAY'..from God. Two words with chilling and disturbing
reality...in the Now. Serving God, has evolved into the grave consequences of man's EGO...
( person's 'sense' of self-esteem or self-importance )...so being that of 'SELFISHLY' serving 'SELF'.
And is this not being 'WITNESSED BY ALL'... and the Cause precisely from Effects of...'JEALOUSY,

'IDOLODRY'...'DISCORD'...'DISSENTION' ( Latin, meaning to think )...'FACTIONS'... 'ENVY'...
and are not these things precisely Warned against by any act of implementing such by attitude or behavior.
Has not modern day Christianity evoloved into a great 'FALLING AWAY'.
A serious refocus on precisely the intent of ones motives shall require a serious and honest spiritual

inventory of ones own SELF....Mirror Mirror on the wall...what is it that YOU see."

"Life happening...from this side of the 'glass' is precisely the intent of sharing from my
personal experiences and the effects of things I share...my love of God's love extends
to each and everyone within the pages of CC, and beyond. Not for me to judge nor offend,
as each individual has their own perceptions of life happening. My life consists of before
and after knowing of God in my life. The past two and a half decades, my life has forever
been changed, by the grace of God...this I know to be without doubt! The Holy Spirit is
a profoundness that exceeds far beyond the limits of human intelligence. And...each day
to strive for harmony of spiritual discipline and worldly things is an endless challenge...
never to be close to God's inspiration of 'principles' of life here in the now...brotherly love,
goodness, kindness, gentleness...etc. etc...plus God's commandments are far more than
everyones lifetime to begin to achieve...and these things must be earnestly sought and
applied each day, without exception...they are essential of any hope of living a relatively
peaceful and well being here on earth. And...this shall be peace on earth...or hell on earth.
And, are we not the results of our own attitudes and behavior, whatever that may be...
here in the NOW. Death, not one shall be left out. Life in the now shall be of utmost
focus of preparation for...ONLY GOD KNOWS...Spirit unto Spirit...Dust unto Dust...
no more...no less."

'Praise God'...:)....I came...I came to...I came to believe.....:)...'God is'.

'Know this, and know it well. Anything under the sun, whatsover, that
of any act or form displayed which dilutes or pollutes the Spirit of God,
by attitude or behavior to make Christianity more compatible with intellectual

"Human faith operates by the knowledge through our senses. Only when one is reborn in the Spirit and
have received one of the fruits of the Spirit, which is spiritual faith."
God has given us enough spiritual faith to have anything manifest in our lives. The reason why most of

what we prayed for in the past did not manifest in our lives is because we hindered or polluted our
prayers by human faith, operating out of the physical, earthly realm. No more...no less.

*Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don't think
you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves
by the faith God has given us. *God Inspired*

"Yes, a church is an organization. That is all. It represents itself and as it has convinced
the poor and others to follow it and worship a god through it, it is a large, wealthy and
very political organization. Religion has been a principal vehicle to manipulate and control people using guilt and fear. This is contrary to the message God has tried to send to the people through numerous
examples all over the world, that love is the most important essence to embody. Does it
make sense that there is only one God and so many people saying, “my way is the ONLY
way?” Is it so surprising that so many people feel disillusioned by religion and really isolated
from God, to the point that they try to completely give up spiritual practice and exercise?
At times one may be estranged from God. But our spiritual nature, the callings of our soul,
keeps poking us with questions. And our true separation from God is brief and only exists
because we sometimes “build walls” in order to turn our back on the truth…at our most basic
level we are spiritual…that is our true nature… and on that level we can “experience” God to
be real and reaching out to each of us in recognition that we are all unique…and on unique
journeys aimed at ever elevating love of self, of God, and of others.
I do NOT have to have intermediaries who dictate what path I take. There are infinite
paths. And your path is unique to you and your unique relationship with God. God gives you
“free will” to discover your true spiritual nature, connect through the pervading energies of

unconditional love, and carry the message of this experience as a “light” to the world.".......:)
'Praise God'........:)

"To carry forth God's word has far reaching implications, spiritually inspired is to
be led by the Holy Spirit in spiritual discipline of living life in the now. Spiritual
awareness shall be a Christ like 'consciousness' in guiding our lives in a more orderly
and manageable means, and sharing our love of the Divine Spirit. So long as we are
absolutely willing to surrender, and hopefully inspire others to be willing to surrender unto
the Holy Spirit within ones own self...this too may be acquired only by discipline and
self-control of ones attitude and behavior, in all things.".........:)
