The Backyard Preacher # 181 (As Christians There is No Room For Defeat!)

“Success is walking from failure to failure with no less enthusiasm.” Winston Churchill.  Isaiah chapter 60 tells a beautiful story of our lives as Kings and Queens upon the earth.  Life will not always be filled with glory, but we will move from glory to glory.  Be Blessed!

The Backyard Preacher # 177 (Mothers Day Episode)

Mother’s Day is not just a day in which we celebrate mothers.  Mother’s Day is a day in which we celebrate the spirit of the feminine.  The church has cast aside the sacred feminine nature of God for so long we have lost balance.  It is time to restore the sacred feminine within our lives and church.

The Backyard Preacher # 174 “Being Told No” (The Motivational Series)

Successful people are told no more times on their life than those who are just getting by.  If you want success you have to take it; that said people will not let you take it without a fight.  We cannot be afraid of being told no.

Is Religion Dangerous?

Is religion dangerous? My answer is no; but also a resounding YES. First at the heart of all religious systems the intent is to journey from the profane to the divine. One would think this would be a wonderful human development of seeking a higher power for the good of humanity. The higher power may be on the outside such as a God or God’s, or the divine is finding ones higher self. Religions of the world vastly differ on how one takes this path.

The varying religious paths prescribed towards divinity shows the beauty of diverse cultures. Religion becomes a danger when one religion demands that they are correct and others are not. Secondly the adherents of the religion feels it is their duty to God to impose doctrine by force.

Two religions have been known to cause the greatest amount of danger to humanity. That is Christianity and Islam. People of these faiths have killed and suppressed nations. Subjected mass amount of anguish upon differing beliefs with laws suppressing the rights of non adherents.

Why, it has not always been this way? Yet even very early in Christianity’s history fights over correct doctrine took place. When Rome saw the opportunity to use Christianity as a way to help control and unite the empire the Roman Catholic church became the enforcer of God and king within Europe.

War was waged against Islam the fairly young religion that was sweeping the middle east by force. A fight that is still in place today. All of this stems because religions such as Christianity and Islam are absolute in their doctrines and pathways to God.

In our modern world religion is used in American politics such as the election of Donald Trump. Yet this is not new. Kings would often claim they ruled by divine right and who can argue with God?

My proposal for religion especially that of Christianity which I am apart of, is the elimination of dogma and doctrine. A true freedom of religion that I pray also on Islam. Let each person be his own pope. Let each person decide the best path within their chosen faith. Let each person develop a path to the divine based on their own understanding of their faith. A faith that all is permitted under love.

In my heart this is what Jesus taught.

What is the difference between work in the past and work today?  If you had the opportunity to make a living doing what you love would you?  Do you live to work or work to live?
