GODS' BIBLE OF TRUTH Rev. 5.20.12 

CHAPTER 1

THE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

PART I

IN THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW ERA, GOD WANTED HIS PEOPLE TO STRENGTHEN THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

PART II

HE WANTED THEM TO STRENGTHEN THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM SO THEY WOULD BE BETTER ABLE TO KNOW HIS WILL.

PART III

HE WANTED THEM TO BE BETTER ABLE TO KNOW HIS WILL SO THEY WOULD BE BETTER ABLE TO FULFILL THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH THEY WERE CREATED.

PART IV

THE LORDS PRAYER FOR THE NEW ERA.

DEAREST GOD,
OUR CREATOR, MAINTAINER, AND SAVIOR,

WE CHERISH YOUR LOVE.

AND ASK THAT YOU HELP US TO STRENGTHEN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU SO THAT WE MAY BE BETTER ABLE TO KNOW YOUR WILL, IMPLEMENT IT, AND FULFILL THE PURPOSE OF OUR CREATION.

CHAPTER 2

MAN'S RELATIONSHIP TO MAN.
 
FIRST PRINCIPLE: 

"DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU."

TO OPTIMIZE THE WAY MEN INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER A PROPER SYSTEM MUST BE DESIGNED. (ANY SYSTEM CREATED AND MANAGED BY MAN WILL BE IMPERFECT – ALL WE CAN DO IS TRY) YOU COULD CALL IT SOCIAL ENGINEERING. ONE ASPECT OF IT IS CAPTURED IN THE GOLDEN RULE.

SECOND PRINCIPLE:

THE FOUNDATION OF A HEALTHY CIVIL SOCIETY IS MADE OF TRUTH, JUSTICE AND PEACE.

FOR PEACE TO PREVAIL, PEOPLE MUST FEEL THEY ARE TREATED TRUTHFULLY, WITH RESPECT, AND JUSTICE.

THIRD PRINCIPLE:

THE FOUR PILLARS OF A HEALTHY CIVIL SOCIETY ARE RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITES, REWARDS, AND PUNISHMENTS.

THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT IS THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN NON-VIOLENT ACTIVITY WITHOUT THE THREAT OF VIOLENCE.  IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF OTHERS TO NOT USE VIOLENCE AGAINST THESE PEOPLE.  PEOPLE WHO ACT RESPONSIBLY SHALL BE REWARDED AND THOSE WHO DO NOT SHALL BE PUNISHED.

PUNISHMENT MUST FIT THE CRIME. NON-VIOLENT ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOR MUST BE DEALT WITH NON-VIOLENTLY, USING A SPECTRUM OF NON-VIOLENT PUNISHMENTS FROM SHUNNING TO BOYCOTTS. VIOLENCE BASED PUNISHMENTS SUCH AS THEFT OR IMPRISONMENT MUST BE RESERVED FOR VIOLENT CRIMES.

(IF YOU ARE CONFUSED AS TO WHY THEFT IS A VIOLENT ACT CONSIDER THAT THEFT OF THE FRUIT OF ONES’ LABOR IS AKIN TO STEALING LABOR, AND SLAVERY.  SIMILARLY, FALSE IMPRISONMENT IS A VIOLENT ACT BY MOST ANY DEFINITION).

FOURTH PRINCIPLE:

PEOPLE MUST FORM PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH EACH OTHER SO THEY CAN WORK TOGETHER COOPERATIVELY.  PEOPLE MUST VOLUNTARILY DONATE TO, AND HELP, THE LESS FORTUNATE TO PREVENT CIVIL UNREST AND CREATE A STABLE SOCIAL SYSTEM FOR ALL.

THE BASIC TOOLS THAT A SOCIETY MAY USE TO KEEP IT RUNNING SMOOTHLY ARE:


1. SHUNNING:


IS A NON-VIOLENT FORM OF PUNISHMENT USED TO MANAGE NON-VIOLENT FORMS OF ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOR. IT CONSISTS OF AVOIDING AND KEEPING AWAY FROM THE OFFENDING PERSON. IN MORE EXTREME FORMS IT CAN ESCALATE TO A BOYCOTT.

2. OSTRACIZING:

IS A FORM OF PUNISHMENT IN WHICH THE OFFENDING PERSON IS EXCLUDED FROM SOCIETY OR BANNED FROM SOCIETY. IT CAN BE TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT BASED ON THE NATURE OF THE OFFENSE.

3. TITHING:

AN INSTITUTE FOR VIABLE TITHING SYSTEM DESIGN SHALL BE ESTABLISHED. A PROPERLY DESIGNED TITHING SYSTEM SHOULD NEGATE THE NEED FOR TAXES.

4. REWARDING:

PEOPLE MUST BE REWARDED FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR, SUCH AS CHARITABLE ACTS AND DEMONSTRATIONS OF NOBILITY. TITHING MUST BE REWARDED AND DEMONSTRABLY APPRECIATED BY SOCIETY. 

CHAPTER 3


THE CHURCH OF THE BIBLE OF TRUTH


THE PURPOSE OF THE CHURCH OF THE BOT, IS TO PROMOTE THE TENANTS OF THE BOT.

THE ORGANIZATION OF THE CHURCH IS SUCH THAT IT WILL BE TOTALLY DECENTRALIZED. THERE WILL BE FUNCTIONING CLUSTERS OF VOLUNTEERS, ANALOGOUS TO CONGREGATIONS, WORKING TOGETHER COOPERATIVELY TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR GOALS.

NO MONEY WILL BE COLLECTED BY OR DONATED TO THE CHURCH. THE CHURCH SHALL NOT OWN ANY ASSETS. ALL ECONOMIC ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHURCH SHALL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY BY THE CONGREGANTS INDEPENDENT OF THE CHURCH.

CHAPTER 4   

LEADERSHIP

“…You shall have no other gods before me”

THIS IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT AND SERVES TO ALERT PEOPLE TO THE FACT THAT WE ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE LURE OF FALSE GODS.

IT IS IN THE NATURE OF CREATION, FOR PEOPLE TO SEEK GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE FROM GOD.  GOD’S GIFT OF PRAYER, IS THE METHOD PEOPLE ARE DESIGNED TO USE FOR THIS PURPOSE.  THIS IS PART OF THE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.  AS THE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS WEAKENED PEOPLE BECOME VULNERABLE TO BEING SEDUCED BY FALSE GODS. 

A CHARISMATIC LEADER WITH A STRONG FOLLOWING CAN BECOME A FALSE GOD, WHO PEOPLE BEGIN TO SEEK THEIR GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE FROM, INSTEAD OF FROM THE TRUE GOD.

THOU SHALT NOT PUT YOUR FAITH IN MEN; THOU SHALT KEEP THE FAITH WITH GOD.

IN THE NEW ERA, PEOPLE SHALL NOT BE SHEEP FOLLOWING A FALSE GOD.  PEOPLE SHALL BE TRUE TO THEMSELVES, RECEIVING THEIR GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE INDIVIDUALLY FROM THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

 
CHAPTER 5

SIN AND REDEMPTION:

Sin is self destructive behavior. Self destructive behavior is anything that weakens your personal relationship with God. Your personal relationship with God is weakened when you willfully do what you want instead of what God wants you to do.
 
Your connection to God is like a fiber optic cable (see the Primer on Truth). When you willfully act contrary to God’s will you pollute your end of the cable making it more difficult to see the light God is sending to you. It is self destructive because it is something you have done to yourself. God did not cut you off – you cut him off, because you know (inside yourself) that you have sinned. You cannot hide from yourself no matter how much you try to deny or rationalize your sin. It is this self knowledge of your sin that pollutes your end of the cable.
 
Similarly you can redeem yourself by getting back on the path of righteousness by willfully doing God’s will. The more you act in support of God’s will the more you will clean the pollution from your end of the cable, and thus, restore your personal relationship with God.
 
You are in total control of the strength or weakness of your personal relationship with God. This is how free will works, and this is what free will is all about. God does not force you to do his will, nor does he punish you, when you thwart his will. It is all up to you. You have the power.
