Aronofsky’s Principle states that all objects in our perceivable state of being, but otherwise unknowable world, are connected unfailingly by forces that interact as one ultimate living being. This is “The God Principle”.
– Pastor Robert Perez
I was ordained in 2017, but spent much of that year into 2018, studying the bible and the history of the church. I was incorporating my understanding of Christ and his teachings into my already formed (but constantly evolving) philosophies.
As I became comfortable with the idea of “teaching the word”, I chose writing as my first way to communicate. It allowed me to take my time and edit my ideas into a more polished intent.
If you read all of my posts, you’ll notice an evolution from a formal approach to a more stylized version that is more like my own “voice”. I realized that I needed to be more like myself for me to be more truthful.
Whether you like my approach or not, it is my sincere hope to be truthful and relatable to the people of today…right now.
So much gobbledygook has muddied the teachings of Christ that it’s little wonder that anyone has a smidgeon of understanding, and it’s politicized as much as it’s always been through the ages.
It’s time to get real.
You must, whoever you are that is reading this, you must step aside from your biases and endeavor with all your soul to find a genuine connection and understanding of God. Doesn’t matter how you get there, JUST GET THERE!
Think, really think, of what it means to be a Christian, of what it means to be a child of God, connected to God. What are you really feeling inside of you? You fool only yourself, if you don’t know the answer.
I vacillate every day, yanked between understanding and confusion, day after day after day. Like we all face, the years have not been without their trials and beautiful moments. I always make my way back into Gods world, but I’m shamed to admit that I cannot stay fully connected without misteps.
I don’t want to feel anger. I don’t want to feel sad. I don’t want to turn a blind eye. I don’t want to be divided into different groups. I don’t want to pretend to be righteous, when I know that in my heart, I have much to fix. These are some of my confessions. What are yours? Are you courageous enough to be honest about them.
I want to love, all of you. I want to love myself. I want to love God and feel Gods love inside me.
It’s time we broke the silence and distance that separates us. We must recognize that even if we are different cultures and faiths, we may agree about what God is, only spoken with different words.
