Thank you for stopping by!
My intention with this website is to promote Unitarian Christianity as the best path to a personal relationship with God. I have the privilege of having a personal relationship with my Father, and I want to share my experience with you, in the eternal hope that you, too, will know God as I know Him and experience an enlightened perspective on life and what happens after death. I’m not saying I have all the answers, but, luckily, Jesus does.
Everything needed to understand God is in the Bible. Jesus tells us that God loves us and cares about us, each one of us, the sinners and the saints. It may be hard to believe, but God loves even those who commit evil on a mass scale. He loves the thief and the murderer, the liar and the hypocrite. He loves us all, equally, because we are all sinners, no matter the temporal gravity of the consequences of our sin, regardless of the level of suffering bestowed upon our fellow brothers and sisters caused by our sin. And, because God loves us all, no mater our sin, we all have an opportunity to be reconciled to God. It’s easy to begin the process of reconciliation. First we apologize for our sin to God and our brothers and sisters affected. Then we never commit that sin ever again. It’s called “repentance”. If we intentionally commit that sin, again, we make ourselves liars and hypocrites, and our original apologies were meaningless. God knows what is in our hearts, and it is better to repent and ask God, daily, to help us never to return to that sin, and He will, and we will be equipped to truly and fully relieve ourselves from that burden, because sin is a burden not only on the ones affected, but also upon the sinner, themselves.
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-30 (NASB), 28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Amen. If you are worrying, take it easy! Jesus provides a way for your heart to be at ease, no matter what is happening around you. I can say for certain that if the world were to crumble down around me, I would not be afraid. God is with me, and that is indisputable.
So, what are the requirements for a personal relationship with God? Well, Jesus tells us: “you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48, NASB). Easier said than done, I know. But, if we are trying to live righteous lives, and our heart is full of love for God and for one another, then we will be without condemnation before God. We will all face the day when we die and we are judged by God to be worthy of eternal life or destruction. Either our heart belongs to God, and we will die and then awaken to live with Him, forever, or we will die and not wake up. The way to find God is to humble yourself to the Creator of the Universe and the way He has set things up for His Creation and fill your heart with His love for humanity. Then you will realize just how small we are and just how much we truly need our Father.
And when it seems impossible to love humanity, think of Jesus. On the cross. An innocent man, convicted of no crime, sentenced to death. And while he hung there, naked, nailed to a tree, he asked God to forgive the men and women who persecuted him, those who mocked him, those that spat upon him. While they crucified the holy Son of God, he still loved them. If he can continue to love them after what they did to him, so can we, after all we’ve been through. But, we are not alone. God is with us. Jesus is with us. We are with each other.
