“SOUND MORAL VALUES
SOUND MORAL STANDARDS”
“These words logically explain what it takes to become a Saint. ‘These words alert mankind to avoid actions, practices, people and/or conditions that are characterized by the following’, such as:
Gambling, when it creates a destructive way of life physically, mentally, monetarily
Weak excuses justifying wrong actions, company and/or lies
Paganism- Ignoring The One True God, paying homage to a false image
Cults - Following degraded mentally and physically destructive forms of religious beliefs and standards
Criticism when it is cultivated by jealousy, envy, hate
Before Christianity, God sent The Commandments as the Foundation for Christianity.
Are not The Commandments of God the Basic Rules for Sainthood?
The simplicity in the conciseness of God’s Commandments, still, ‘even though They have been watered down to a few words, define The Rules of life to be followed.’
Remember, Keep Holy The Sabbath Day — There are many ways to do this. ‘Organized religion when it is right.’
Living each day conscious of a moral attitude, example, and remembering God in our thoughts, actions, and a sincere thanksgiving.
We have a mind to think with, to make decisions, to have preferences of ideals, ideas and goals.
We have an innate sense of right and wrong.
We have the ability to choose.
We have understanding.
We have degrees of logic that we should never allow to be jeopardized by others’ opinions, and/or need for control.
Isn’t confusion, which is caused by the ‘enemy of God and man’, his way of drawing people away from obedience to God’s Commandments?
Are all people who choose religious vocations fully qualified to support and lead other people to become Saints? DEFINITELY NOT. Or, do some become confused as to the strictness and responsibility, and use this vocation for the wrong reasons? First, the people financially support them, and they are looked up to and find their control over others makes them important. But, what about their Soul and the Souls of others? Most times this becomes a forgotten issue, or never was an issue.
If we are conscious of our own sense of justice and our ability to innately feel what is right and what is wrong, then we should not compromise our judgment, but practice what we innately feel is morally and spiritually correct for our Soul.
Logic says we have Something in our being that is not seen, but that we are aware of Its Presence because of our strength in judgment, knowledge, and what we automatically know is right.”
