Jumping Right In
"... WE ARE WHAT WE BELIEVE"
Making positive change is what we are all about. So who decides whether change is positive or negative anyway? Well, of course, you do! I do! We ALL do! And, given history, the march of time, for decades, centuries, millennium, we have seen that until this very day, and know that still tomorrow and beyond, this is an ever-evolving dynamic event that forever has, and forever will - remain subject to the trends and the very ebb and flow of civilization.
The measuring stick we use here will change from person to person. I am well aware of that fact, but despite our many differences, I still choose to believe when truth is brought out, we will all basically agree.
I am referring to the "common" part of "common-sense" here. When it comes right down to it, I know it's accurate to say that every single person on earth can recognize "truths" when they see them. Of course I don't, personally, know every single person on earth, but I still feel I can say that people KNOW the truth when they see it. OR when they hear it, encounter it, or are faced with it etc. I've always said that "Truth owns it's own inherent validity." I've said this because life's experience has proven to me time and again, that truth is really self-validating in and of itself. That has been my experience, when I encounter truth, I'm instantly convinced. And by and large I think it's like that for most people, if not even for everyone.
Though I may not like or agree with what I see at times, something deep in me earnestly concedes to the truth just because it's the truth. Yes, this is my assumption, yes, and it is simply an assumption but one I'm willing personally to subscribe to as a direct result of my own personal experiences. That and faith. (your probably thinking right now, faith? Now how does faith play into this? Please let me explain.
I can clearly see, in the BIBLE, that "original sin" supports my point. Believe it or not this idea of truth being obvious and ostensibly, to my point, self-validating, is biblical. And I contend that Genesis backs up this precept. In Genesis, we see mankind infused with the "Knowledge" of Good & Evil! When Eve eats the forbidden fruit and Adam follows suit, their eyes are opened and they see right and wrong or "Good & Evil". (Read Gen. 2:9) So let's just saw off right there and say mankind as a whole, can clearly tell the truth, and know it well.
Christians, till this day, labor to proliferate the Good News, or, "The Gospel" and that labor relates directly to the fall of man and man's guilt for choice to do evil, when he knows in truth, the "good" rather, that should be done.
Now, not to stray too far off topic here, because a large treatise on religion is not my goal, but I simply want to point out that Christian ministry -- to this day -- is to let all the world know that Jesus saves lives! Saves them from what? Separation from God. To give mankind a message of Salvation that, by repentance and faith in Jesus Messiah, the substitutionary sacrificial Lamb who was slain on the cross to take my place has a lot to do with our propensity to know truth, yet still deny it, refuse it or otherwise avoid it.
The old curse that separated us from the Father, which, in consuming that fruit, has brought spiritual death to everyone who has ever been born. We see both the woman and her husband consumed this fruit off the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Read Gen. 3:6) We also know Man was expelled from the Garden of Eden (Read Gen. 3:24) so they would be prevented from consuming the fruit from the Tree of Life, and live for eternity in this poisoned corrupted state.
What this really means is, if you think about it, since we all share "Knowledge" of "Good" and "Evil" and you and I both know the difference between right and wrong, so as such, when it comes to the right things in life, we should all share a common understanding.
The problem each of us has had, throughout time immemorial, is in reconciling this "Consciousness of Right & Wrong," in the application of the care we each ought to have for each other. All people need to love each other with a genuine love that allows us to choose to get along despite our differences. This is a practice that I belove is being hindered by our own individual world-views. (or so I think.)
This is where things run afoul. Depending on what we each think life is supposed to be about, and what we each think is important or what we want out of this life and just what we are willing to do to accomplish that, and how any particular issue relates to those opinions and what we want yields the result of how we treat others.
Just what we decide to do with our knowledge how we choose to react to that knowledge will be the key to characterize the nature of our relationships with our fellow man. At the end of the day, this will be the foundation our very societies are going to be premised uopn. In Canada, we lean towards, a Westernized, Judaeo-Christian perspective, and that is the nucleus of what makes us special in the world. And THAT is alright.
Phew, man this is some deep thinking there, but NOT impossible to grasp.
Regardless of your own personal religious persuasions, we know that the whole world, (with few major exceptions) accepts the occurrence of a "fall of man" a, "biting from the apple" and this is taught to all from a pretty widely inclusive summary starting at Judea-Christian believers and includes just about every other religious group all the way to Muslims or about every other religion that mankind has developed, represented across the whole spectrum.
The ideas or arguments presented here might challenge you in ways you have never considered before. Of course, you may also read and learn that you agree entirely with the values we're presenting to you. From here, of course I can't say! Who could? Either way, it is my hope that common sense with distinct-but-obvious instruction lies within the phrases and statements that you are about to encounter.
What we believe about the following items is paramount to effecting changes. Changes both, that I may effect in you, and, changes that, you may effect in others. I believe that It's here, in the following values that I've laid out under each heading below, that the lines of differences our populace is generally split over are drawn! And I also believe that it is here that we can also find unity. This is where we can jump in! This is where my labor starts.
Either by encountering some new and powerful insights that I hope possess paradigm-changing revelations that you could discover, new ideas, that I sincerely hope you find palatable. I am NOT looking for a debate, I'm only sharing my values with the intent that you might discover new and better ways to go about living-out or operating in the values and concepts that I believe are chiefly held by most or should be held by all reasonable and peaceable folks world-over.
Either way, if you can make it through these items and find truth here you can accept, when you learn to share what you also believe for the sole purpose of caring and building people who maybe don't know WHAT to believe, or who go along with others who have bullied them or lied to them are on the verge of very positive change.
