HE IS RISEN! Rejoice!

I think I'm going through one of those moments when God is sculpting me. I recieved two emails today from my new friend Larry, both were full of Gods love. Scripture pertaining to this day, and words of inspiration. Thanks to the Lord almighty, for washing away my sins, for further opening my eyes. Thanks to God for sending me a friend who can help me find redemption. Love All.

Psalm 145:7

They will celebrate Your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.

Look around your world today, and see all that God has given you and be thankful.

An inspiring quote

Heaven means to be one with God-Confuscious

I know it's been awhile since I posted, but I am still keeping the faith. A religion of one, I remain.

Still Standing... ...alone.

Yes I am still here, still promoting Divine Lovism. I am the sole member of this order, but thats ok. If no one ever reads this its ok. This blog started out as a way for me to explore faith and to come to a greater understanding of God. To that end I was successful. If forever this shall remain a church of one then so be it. That must be Gods will. On a personal note, no matter how hard I try to be like Jesus, I keep on being myself. Flaws and all, I still have bouts of doubt about my faith and about my sanity. So I figure I'll keep trying because I think God sees me as a work in progress. To that point, Divine Lovism continues to be a work in progress, certainly blessed and guided by God.

Merry Christmas

Christmas is a mixed blessing. It's a time of year when we all try very hard to do nice things for each other, giving gifts etc. However it seems that we get dragged down by all the commercialism and the phony red and green pseudohappiness. Celebrating the birth of a saviour is a wonderful thing, but going into debt to give everyone exactly what they want is a bad thing. You cant always get what you want, give them inexpensive but meaningful things. I worked for a few years in a major toy store. We, the employees, dreaded Christmas because of the crowds and rudeness that came out of even the nicest people. One year our store sold out of video games, and still people came by the hundreds to get that Nintendo. I was forced to turn them all back with a phony smile. I hated Christmas. One gentleman decided to take it out on me personally for his child not getting a Nintendo that year. I faked that smile as long as I could but really I wanted to tell that guy what a butthole he was being. So I guess my message this year is I'm kinda glad the economy is crappy because maybe it will take the greed and unkindness out of Christmas, maybe it will make people realize what Christmas is really all about, maybe it wont be so material and maybe we can have the spiritual celebration of Christs birth that it was meant to be. Merry Christmas to all even the atheists.

A note to you atheists, stop taking Christmas away from the kids who believe just to protect your child. I'll get all Spock on ya, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. There are a lot more Christian and faith based families then there are atheist families.

Differences

Well it seems that I should inform people more about Divine Lovism. So, I'll delve into the differences between Divine Lovism and other Christian religions. Most of the time you will hear someone say, "I am a God fearing Christian". Lovites should say, "I am a God loving Christian". Don't fear God, reciprocate the love he has for you. God loves us and we should love him. After all, God gave us our lives. Love for God should always be tempered with gratitude. Be thankful, that God loves you. Here's the part that a lot of people are going to have a hard time swallowing, sin and redemption. God loves you, unconditionally, he will not condemn you to a fiery lake. He wants you to do good, to be of good spirit. But at the same time he knows better than we do, that we are human and even the best intentions go astray. I struggle everyday with trying to be Godlike, but I still catch myself being foul. The glory is in the effort. Try to be good, try to be Godlike, this sounds cliched but ask yourself at every decision WWJD. If you don't know what that means its, What Would Jesus Do? You can supplement what would God do, or what would Buddha do? They are all representations of God. They all give the same message, Love and Forgiveness. So try your best to make good decisions, do things that are good, doing bad things deliberately will fill your spirit full of negative energy. The more negativity the further you are from God. Positive = Good, Negative = Bad. God is everywhere, everything, and even a part of you. The human soul is divine, it is the soul that should make all the decisions. God put a piece of himself in all of us. We are just souls walking around in temporary physicalness. Don't let the physical side override the spiritual side. Try always to keep the spiritual side in charge. Love All, Forgive All. I know that the forgiveness part is hard especially in cases of mass murderers. But we must seek to override our natural hate and disdain and try to see the soul inside the flawed physical mind and body. Prayer is the most important part of Divine Lovism. Pray every day, at least once. Then take some time to meditate on what you prayed about. I pray so much that sometimes I think God will get tired of hearing me. I saw on TV the other day about a high school student who was diagnosed with brain tumors. I immediately prayed for him. Prayer is a powerful tool that is often neglected. I found a picture of a sign in front of a Baptist church that said, A Free Thinker is Satan's slave. It's that kind of thinking that started the Spanish Inquisition. You should be a free thinker, you should not blindly follow any one doctrine. Seek the truth for yourself. Divine Lovism wants you to study all religions. Divine Lovism doesn't hold strictly to one book. All books are good, because knowledge is power. Confession, though misused by some, is good for the soul. But you don't need a priest to absolve you. Confess to God. He is always listening. He understands you better than anyone on earth. The main difference you will find between Divine Lovism and other major religions is that we will never ask you for money. We don't need money, we have God. Use your money for your needs, take care of yourself and your family. However Divine Lovism encourages donating to charities that feed the children or to Ronald McDonald House. Charities that have a proven record of doing good with the money given to them. I cant help but think that a church that asks for tithes is somehow corrupt. Well I hope this helps someone, if your considering Divine Lovism for yourself contact me at Godsdivinelove(at)hotmail.com I will be more than happy to counsel you and pray with you. God bless you all.

Prayer 101

I thought about what I would write next, but could think of nothing. Today I asked God what he wanted me to write about. I quietly meditated for just a moment and there it was. God wants everyone to know how to pray. If your already following a church or used to things being a certain way, then you may not like my way. However no one told me my way was right or wrong this is just how I do it and it is effective. I start by thanking God, for my life, for his love, for my family, for everything, for any particular answered prayers. I then ask the question or questions I am seeking help with. Then I say thank you God for listening. Then, because of my belief in Christ, I say, I pray to you O' Lord in the name of my saviour Christ. Then if you have time, meditate and listen for your answers.

You can pray out loud, silently to yourself, or any way you prefer. I recommend a position that shows respect to God, shows humility.

In Gods Hands

So far Divine Lovism seems to be just me, thats ok. I have put it all in Gods hands, if God wants many Lovites then God will lead them here. If God wants us to have a physical (bricks and mortar) church, then he will provide. Thank you God for getting me to this point.
