MM Book 1 Chapter 4-3


The Kingdom of God is not only the future utopia that is a promise from God, but is also a physical and spiritual blueprint, the communitarian model propounded in the Bible; it is the form of society that Christ Jesus and the apostolic era Christians practised; it is the model that we are encouraged to practise today; the Kingdom of God is the libertarian Government of God, an anarcho-communitarian federation of communities; the Constitution is the 10C; the Declaration of Independence is the Sermon on the Mount [the non-systemic doctrine that is so foreign to man's corporate construct]; the communitarian Church of God, a movement not an organization – the good book instructs us to regard the ants, their industriousness as a model [an ant colony = anarcho-symbiosis(sys); coordinated behavior; interaction of components (without hierarchical government)]; Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant … consider her ways [a living system], and be wise [the application of knowledge]; God represents many things to many people, but no matter your definition, the common meaning is *reason* and dialogue; “come now, and let us reason together…” [Isaiah 1:18] [Christ/Messiah is that "common definition" no matter your spiritual profession, your "religion"; many paths (the social definition/expression) leading to the one God, all "common sourced"; many avowed atheists are better Christ-ians than many who profess; many do not believe, yet "know" God in their daily interactions] – the dominant force for the future must be cooperation not corporate exclusivity; human-scale *living stones* not unyielding corporate monoliths.

Micah 4:3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 4:4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make [them] afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken [it]. 4:5 ** For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. **

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-4


Conversion is a process – the communitarian path will lead us back to God; the present system is guilty of “crimes against humanity”, nay, “crimes against the future of humanity” – real spiritual joy, the joy that flows from God is also co-dependent on physical joy, the joy made possible by a right way of life; God has provided the blueprint, the plan of action for us to follow that will mesh with our genetic potential, that will unleash mankind to fulfill its potential within the God Family; our way of life is the determinant; let us begin !! – it begins within the individual, within each of us – the system is psychological, we must break the barrier; we must turn from [repent] the Mammon-construct – when we read the scriptures we are entering into a dialogue with God [Christ is the Word; the definition]; some things are written in stone [ie., the 10C; we are the *living stones*, the active living law, the living example to all, the witness] but God is seeking those willing to dialogue, to reason with him; the benefit is for ourselves; there is a direction existent that is a perfect match for our human design, all else will lead to design fatigue, failure and collapse; the prophetic determinants are a testament to this, history does repeat itself; our world-systemic [G2889 kosmos] is a cancer !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-5


Those within the hierarchy are guilty of “obstruction of justice”, the *chain* of command vs. the liberation of humankind — we are all complicit; this is the first step, the realization that leads to the conversion process:
* awareness, realization, alternatives;
* humility, a contrite heart [Isa. 66, "to this man will I look"];
* seeking [unselfish] truth, the beginning of conscientious objection;
* a comprehensive critique of society; a process of refusals and developing critique; changing one’s personal life, “everyday life”, is ultimately the motivation for changing society;
* if we’re to come to grips with transforming this world, then we’d better get used, not to living with contradictions, but to striving with and against them, and make sure that we make the optimal use of our creative capacities to overcome them;
* seeking solutions, dialogue, co-intelligence, a shared experience, Circles Of REliance [CORE] group(s);
* expatriation and repudiation; we cannot serve two masters, it is either God or Mammon !!
* the communitarian way of Christ.

The Gospel message is a message of *action* – God is a verb NOT a noun – a living faith; an alternative to this world’s system – “come out of her, my people, and be ye separate” [in all aspects of life; if you use the government's economy, you serve the economy's government], “be ye perfect”, not friends [associates] of this evil world [James 4:4]; give unto God what is God’s [incl., His people; the government issue]; God will lead the converted and unconverted and will collapse the Mammon-construct by His common Liberty, the communitarian way, the living Gospel and witness; the manifestation of this world’s evil is its *money*, the “graven” image and the invented, controlled, fluctuating markets, the “molten” image; the “unrighteousness of Mammon” the personification.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-6


Self-interest [personal gain at the expense of another], the definition of evil, man’s way, the “-ism’s”, usury of others; RIGHTEOUSNESS is the recognition and resultant conduct away from self-interest, recognition beyond oneself, God’s way [true love the determinant: God's faith as gift; righteousness is obedience to the commandments through faith; God's *nature of interaction* for His Family]; each of us is dependent on the interests of others; a society of the gift – diminished credibility [each act of self-interest in whatever form expressed]; Christianity is *the path away from self-interest* — the *national interest* of America, the people [separate from the national interest of the US, the Mammon-construct] is NOT served by the murder of any [of one or of many], whatever the label applied, whatever the context [all have the potential of adoption into the God Family no matter how misguided, self-serving they are today, and must be treated as such]; no killing is justified, and neither is the *use* of human beings as commodities or tools for the purpose of profit, the slavery of the many for the benefit of the few !!

The sacrifice to the systemic construct, the false altar; the rule of unrighteous law should not and cannot be endured and justified by a *civilized* society; civil-realization based on righteous law and social practise is a must, indeed a prerequisite to the Kingdom of God; the misery experienced around the world, around each of us, is a tragedy, and our turning of our backs, the indifference expressed, is a tragedy in itself; unexamined privilege is a crime !! – it is what we *don’t do* with the gift of privilege, *our* privilege; God is watching !! – we have to stop asking “why does God allow this, the pain, the hurt, the suffering?”; instead we must ask “why do *we* allow this?” – we *are* the active agents of God, we *are* members of the Family of God, God has given *us* the responsibility [response-ability; the ability to respond (the Holy Spirit)] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-7


Well done good and faithful servant; the application of God is our responsibility !! – the Kingdom of God cannot be built on man’s foundations, the constructs existent – God provides the alternative, and His foundation is not the way of man – man’s ways are NOT God’s ways !! — an adversarial covenant vs. the covenant of righteousness and judgement, the foundation of God’s Throne – we must pull down the false alters, we must recover the Law of God — wisdom is the *sense* of the world, of creation and our place and responsibility within it — making sense out of the world *not* cents out of the world – money is a measure of worthlessness; the more money, the more worthless !! — the Word of God is priceless; asking for money for God’s truth, putting a price on the Gospel, is *cheapening* God’s Word – God will provide His way; within the systemic: minimize, voluntary simplicity, withdrawal !! — sharing in, reaping the benefits [false fruits] of monetary barbarism [ethics are arbitrary] is sin, a crime against ourselves and God; it makes us complicit in crimes against humanity !! — we cannot in good conscience partake of a systemic derived from inhuman practises !! – the force of God’s character and consciousness residing within compels us to change !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-8


God’s words are to be applied to God’s community, NOT in support of man’s constructs, in support of man’s carnal ways, using God as excuse and authority – we have to reach beyond man and extend into the God realm !! — our society and its structures *deny* God – we deny God in our daily living, in our self-serving attitudes and machinations [to devise, plan, or plot artfully, esp. with evil intent; an artful or secret plot or scheme] – we deny God with our categorizing, our labelling of each other [labels negate humanity], we are all *one* in Christ Jesus — our narrow views, our vested self-interest and protection of the same is opposed to the Kingdom of God !! – labels imply judgment, they imply a *lessening* – God’s community is a community where each of us considers the other’s well-being as primary, and she/he in turn, where there are no labels, only members of the God Family, where “mine and thine” [the artificial barriers] do not exist – labels, and their application is NOT loving your fellow man as yourself and as such deny God’s Character [10C].

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-9


The crux of the matter is this: do you believe in the Word of God, or not ?? – what system of belief do you hold to: God’s or Satan’s ?? – if to Christ, then are you a hearer only, and not a doer of the word, hearing God but following the adversary, and if so, why? – we must break the yoke, the constraints of man’s society [the systemic disregard of God], while at the same time build the alternative – God speaks of righteousness, the perfecting of Humanity; the whole Law of God is summed up by love towards God and love towards your fellow man; there is NO compromise !! — faith presupposes works [the expression of character], as faith without works is dead – the strength of the Kingdom of God is measured in our duties to each other, not in our claims over each other; Israel [H3478 God prevails; He will rule as God, root: to prevail; have power (as a Prince); (the very Family of God)] is a *state of being* not a *state of non-being*, an impersonal entity over people; Israel is its people, freedom and security, servant government within, an ingress into God’s community, true government, justice expressed — CORE, Circle of Reliance, a circle of trust, the body of Christ NOT disembodied strangers; group consciousness !! – God’s values *embodied* – small pools of trust, still waters; these pools grow and overlap to become a lake of trust [Word of God]; diffusion and multiple identities are our defense against diffuse and multiple threats.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-10


Most “personal scripture” is prewritten by others and incorporated without question; who is the author of you ?? – God is the author of our salvation, He will rewrite us, renew us, if only we will invite Him in – our “scripture” has become flawed and only the original author can restore it !! — a community of renewed mind, an altered state of consciousness; the Kingdom of God begins with God’s consciousness — the Holy Spirit of God is God’s own Mind, His very consciousness, His knowledge and understanding from *within* – human spirit overlaid and permeated by God’s Spirit [sub-conscience (subconscious), conscience, *over-conscience*] !! – God’s Mind, His very consciousness, His intelligence(s) residing in us, His abilities, His very “being” a part of our own – He is expressed as our own mind becomes tuned into His mind [our mind truly becomes *our* mind] – the actualization becomes possible as we grow in grace and knowledge, as wisdom expands to fill our being, as we open the doors of our minds [doors, partitions, veils; light enters vs. shadow] to Christ and allow Him entrance to sup with us [to gather together for the common meal of bread, milk and meat; the spiritual manna], our capacity increases, we become nourished – Amos 3:3, can two walk together, except they be agreed? – God’s mind will merge with our mind as we become aware of, recognize, and conform with God’s will, as His will becomes our will, when His objectives become ours – we will exist in a perfect and holy symbiotic, dependent and reciprocal relationship – we will assume the rights and responsibilities of the God Family — we are the active agents in the design and creation of our own intelligence(s), in the service of the Family – the community *is* the congregation [not just the human community but the whole community of life]; we must be the elders at this time, those mature in the spirit, the servant example.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-11


God’s consciousness awakening in our minds, with the fruits of the Spirit [nine fruits, nine intelligences] drawing out and defining our natural abilities, sharpening our intellect [ennead mentation (multiple intelligence)], creating each of us as distinct, unique individuals in the God Family, each uniquely prepared for the responsibilities that await us; God’s nature becomes our nature !! – the Spirit conveys to God an understanding of our thoughts and very being and in return gives us the attributes and nature of God Himself in harmony with our own and/or paired to correct – the Spirit gives to each person the attributes God desires in order to benefit the Body as outlined in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11; God gives us all different aspects of Himself, and puts us together for the benefit of all – every person in the Family has a particular strength that the others do not necessarily possess; we are all doing a job that we were given by God to do – the Body of Christ has been given people of varied gifts and talents and God does it for the greater glory of us all – the Body benefits by the operation of each one of us, but we can quench the operation of the Spirit; if we don’t pull our weight individually, we can quench the Holy Spirit; we affect each other because we are all one Body, we affect God – the Spirit can be quenched (1 Thess 5:19) by being neglected or grieved (Eph 4:30); our capacity for growth and service is diminished – our understanding becomes darkened as the light fades, as God’s consciousness withdraws from our unrepented sins, our unrepentant attitude; the withdrawal of God’s consciousness, the vacuum of understanding, the absence of light and God’s strength, draws in the adversary’s consciousness which overwhelms our weakened carnal mind, grips our minds tightly in its grasp of error.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-12


Only those who understand their tools can really control them and only if we understand the corporate tools that are used to control us can we fight back effectively [*money* is the most effective control mechanism ever developed by man; it is an evil instru-mentality] – by coming to understand the reality behind the current world economic system, we can learn to build a new operating system for ourselves, a new way of organizing our productive activities that will build community instead of destroying it, that will empower us as individuals rather than enslaving us and reducing us to cogs in an incomprehensible and uncontrollable machine; this is the *common purpose* [that we might destroy the works of the devil], the sense of common purpose, of community.

The “private” Federal Reserve Notes [FRNs] are stained and tainted with blood and oppression; they are separate from the love of God, indeed opposed to it – the use of the phrase “In God We Trust” inscribed on these instruments of evil is an affront to God and His righteousness: Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God … Deuteronomy 6:16 — the prophets for profit (both secular and religious) are responsible: Isaiah 9:15 The ancient and honourable, he [is] the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he [is] the tail. 16 For the leaders of this people cause [them] to err; and [they that are] led of them [are] destroyed. Psalm 62:10 *Trust not in oppression*, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart [upon them].

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-13


Each FRN is contaminated with evil and the degree of our infection [the social control, the bondage], our social sickness, is determined by the degree [the intensity] of our contact with it – we must not only seek healing for ourselves, but by doing so, provide healing for the whole social organism – FRNs (and associate currencies, CDN Dollar/Pound/Euro) must be refused and rejected; God promises *true* liberty, FRNs are predicated upon usury [debt is the controlling factor, interest is the continuity factor] – Jesus did not carry Roman currency and neither should we [when challenged about paying tribute unto Caesar He had to ask his accusers for one of their coins] — we must follow and emulate Christ and reduce and eventually eliminate our dependence on, and our utilization of, corrupt private currency – 1 Timothy 5:22 … *neither be partaker [G2841] of other men’s sins*: keep thyself pure [Strong's Concordance - be partaker; communicate; distribute 1a) to come into communion or fellowship with, to become a sharer, be made a partner 1b) to enter into fellowship, join one's self to an associate, make one's self a sharer or partner].

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-14


Supreme authority [as final, proud, arrogant, ultimate, highest in rank and power, the presumption of the merchant-State, and the corporate church] denies rights, but God is *servant authority*, an authority of service, example and design, a right way of life with its attendant benefits and blessings [supreme in regards to highest in quality, achievement, performance, etc., most excellent] – Human Rights are not privileges granted by God, but are *inherent rights* [not a thing given, established, or conferred], they are *ordained* of God, self-existent; these are God’s *own* rights, the rights of His very Family !! – God is NOT privilege, nor does He confer the same — those of claimed “Divine Right”, those who back the governing powers, the “Self-Appointed Guardian Elite” [the SAGE, the very descendants of Charlemagne], those who rule this their world [they built it, they own it (kosmos); the "Crown-Corporate", "US-Corporate", "EU-Corporate", the "divine sanction" given/assumed; "private State" imposed over "public Nation" (the corporate Nation-State)], have taken the Rights of God and have made them privileges to be granted by themselves – these are privileges at the caprice of SAGE authority — supremacy has *all* the rights; therefore their crimes against humanity are not wrongs in their view, for if you have no rights, you cannot be wronged; when rights are recognized, privilege is destroyed !! — this is the secret, the solution, the recognition that leads to our withdrawal [our only weapon is our refusal] and our return to God; the power of the State becomes non-existent.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-15


The SAGE, the Self-Appointed Guardian Elite: (the modern variant of an ancient term derived from the following)

… the conviction has grown that the corporation has become a system of private government, structured along hierarchical lines very much like a totalitarian state – lacking constitutional guidelines, many threatened to become lawless – their economic power and strength, and the strength of the nation, rested in the hands of a few thousand men in control of the corporate bureaucracy … in recent years a relatively small oligarchy from the same milieu, whose members deal almost exclusively with each other and possess no ownership relation of any sort, have come to represent the power center of the corporation … large corporations had come to control a significant part of the economy and of society – indeed as society became increasingly dependent on the corporation, the latter’s independence was correspondingly increased – corporate directives and decisions acquired the force of law, as accommodation to that law became the quintessence of adaptability – “self-appointed corporate guardians” emerged, responsible only to themselves – whatever motion they generated in their capacity as corporate managers became the way of validating their own exercise of power. [Ben B. Seligman, essay THE SEVENTIES: Problems and Proposals, 1972]

… Keynes was one of the founding fathers of the Bretton Woods institutions – the World Bank and the IMF – he, I believe, was driven by the very best of interests – he was very concerned by what had happened during the depression and he was concerned about poverty, but he had no faith in people, in individuals to run their affairs and run the affairs of state – he believed in the need to have a “Guardian Elite” that would do the economic management and design industrial strategies, and so on, that would guide the economies of countries – and this is precisely what the World Bank turned out to be … [CBC IDEAS, March 14, 1992, Business World, discussion; Economist Patricia Adams, author Third World "Odious Debt"]

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-16


If you are a part of it, then you support it – repentance recognizes our rights; repentance is a return to God, an act of recognition, us of God, and God of us; it is an indication, an expression of violation(s) of conscience; we become conscientious objectors, a reclamation of our *common rights* with their responsibilities (not a seeking after, a self-serving acceptance of privilege); we enter the Family of God, an inherent right, not a privilege granted – God is not only a Family, God is Community; we denied our own rights by our actions, our selfish existence, we were opposing ourselves; our improper community hid God from us, denied God – our contrition [our remorse for having done wrong, our sorrow for having offended God; an understanding God will give us, if only we seek and ask] brings us to the attention of God, and upon true repentance, and our acceptance of Christ’s death as payment for our past sins, the penalty incurred, pictured and accepted in Baptism, God imparts as promise, as right, His Holy Spirit [the Holy *Mind* of God, His Life, His very agency], enabling us to truly turn from, actively repent of this world’s way to the acknowledging of the truth [as legal, binding authority; the warrant of scripture], to a lifetime of conversion, to grow in the *grace and knowledge* of our Lord Jesus Christ; to enter into the proper community of God – proper community discloses, reveals, demonstrates, manifests and expresses God; God becomes self-evident – community is apocalyptical, a revealing, a discovery, an unwrapping, an exposure, an acknowledgement, an avowal, a confessional, admissive not submissive; God’s community is an incarnation [serving as the type or embodiment of a quality or concept], the manifestation of scripture; community is of Christ — SAGE authority “over” or “upon” is the “suppression of” – no man, nor group of men, no artificial structure, institution or instrumentality can negate God’s Rights; community is a re-definition of our needs and wants, a re-defining to overcome our instilled subjugation.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-17


The communitarian values are inherent within the Gospel message; the spiritual and physical are inextricably intertwined together, they cannot be separated and must be lived and experienced together; there is only one way: to conquer others is to know power, *to conquer yourself is to know the way* [the physical is a reflection of the spiritual]; the spiritual focus in all aspects of life is primary, the spiritual nature in each of us — cities thick with people need to be stirred; the begettal of physical society, a transformation from the ground up – truth planted, nurtured, harvested – conversion is a process; people seek to understand themselves [self-actualization and maturation] in terms of their social environment but our basic human needs for meaning and understanding are not being met; we are comfortably numb – a new mode of existence is needed, one that illuminates the nature of human existence and its ideal possibilities.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-18


Socialism, environmentalism, all the ism’s, organized church activity, NGO’s, and other aspects of worldly life are inadequate patching on a social system that needs to be discarded and replaced – the promise of the corporate kingdom has replaced the promise of the Kingdom of God, the almighty dollar has replaced Almighty God in the affairs of men – each time we use a dollar [FRN/Canadian] we are distributing and contributing to the evil, the misery, the debt, the oppression, the sacrifice of others, etc., that it represents; denominated in intensity, we become complicit !! — the alternative would be to contribute yourself, your energies, your talents and skills [gifts from God], represented in a community currency, within the communitarian context [give unto Caesar what is Caesar's but give unto God what is God's; no utilization within] – we must gradually withdraw from the federal system and implement alternative zero-interest, or negative-interest community and/or regional currencies rooted in community, “just balances, just weights” (Lev. 19:35-36); we have to stop demanding a bigger slice of the pie, and start making our own — the conversion process is a disinvestment from the world system but a reinvestment in community, in ourselves; it represents trust, acceptance !! – it relies on your good word and deeds [backed by the Word of God]; we are environment specific but it must be the environment designed by the progenitor, expressed in family and community [not the conditions of life set by the SAGE]; true confidence in ourselves, not in an artificial, distant and removed construct – our inherent value is love, truth, and responsibility, the communitarian way, the Christ-systemic.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-19


We must realize that our systemic physical values are diametrically opposed to our professed spiritual values; the contradictions are inherent in our social and private lives – we are negating the spiritual in our lives by our physical existence – we must *live* in the Spirit, but also must *walk* in the Spirit, that the righteousness of the law might be *fulfilled* in us – the pursuit of knowledge, including the spiritual, is a worthy endeavor, but it must elevate one – you cannot compromise on the physical and expect to properly reflect the spiritual – the physical reality must reflect the spiritual, and this is achieved by the communitarian gospel – this is imperative as a different form of existence is looming and humanity is not sufficiently mature against increased SAGE-Corporate manipulation — the Gospel message (the social and spiritual) has been distorted; medium distortion (the corporate medium; the medium is the message); Matthew 24:14, and this gospel of the kingdom (communitarian; physical and spiritual) shall be *preached* in all the world for a *witness* unto all nations; and then shall the end come – equitable and humane community is a task we all must be committed to; our daily existence, ** our actions and commitments constitute the preaching and the witness ** – “I versus you,” the growing distinction between the “haves” and the “have not’s” and the “never will haves” (the mythology of scarcity promulgated by the corporate; the problem is one of corporate distribution, entitlement and profit NOT scarcity), and the abrogation of responsibility, must end.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-20


Community must be made level (de-leavened); we are *all* made in the image and likeness of God – the cultural and power hierarchy is of man; reclaim yourself, take back what is rightfully yours (physically and spiritually); bring back meaning into your life and in the lives of those around you, those who *truly* make you who you are !! – our existence is God ordained, it is not something that has to be bought; we should not need a license to live (money) – the basic needs of life [food, water, shelter, clothing, health care, education, etc.] are NOT commodities for sale, but ordained human rights, and it is *our* responsibility to ensure equal distribution to all !! – the commodification of life for profit is *pure evil* — our existence must be a contribution freely given and distributed !! – our choices in the next few years will determine our children’s future; Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you – this is a *promise* from God !! – Psalms 50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that *ordereth* [his] conversation [G1870] [aright] will *I shew* the salvation of God [Strong's Concordance; 1) way, road, distance, journey, manner 1a) road, way, path 1b) journey 1c) direction 1d) manner, habit, way 1e) of course of life 1f) of moral character] – only man devalues man; God holds man as worthy to receive His Holy Spirit, His very life, the knowledge from within; *God will show us the way* !! – God regards man as priceless, potential members of His very Family, and so should we; that is the essence of the Sermon on the Mount, that message so foreign, so damning to the SAGE construct.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-21


“America” must return to herself (and by extension Canada and the UK) – the “mainstream” media is an open sewer; we have to return to the “streams of consciousness”, the “rivers of truth”, the pure waters; the source is *America*, the *ideal* is enshrined in her people, the collective consciousness, the social consciousness that must be manifested in the popular sovereignty that is the root of democracy [a reflection of the Bible and God's Constitution, the 10 Commandments]; we must wash ourselves, we must remove the stain of this oppressive society, we must become “unspotted from the world” – diminished values mean a diminished America; we must walk with God, we must live the “Sermon on the Mount,” the ultimate strength is a society of the gift: “freely ye have received, freely give” – civil society must be primary, the foundation, where we live; free institutions, voluntary associations; where we learn citizenship, where we share interests, where we engage in community and association; citizens joined together; the *Spirit of Liberty* is local – America must be America, to herself and to the world (the world has only experienced “Corporate-America”, a contradiction in terms and application) !!

Freedom is not something man has for himself but something he has for others; the freedom Christ has given us is not a possession, a presence, an object, but is a *relationship* between two persons; being *free* means *being free for the other*, because the other has bound me to him – only in relationship with the other am I free – the freedom to which we are called presupposes the going out of oneself, the breaking down of our selfishness and of all the structures that support our selfishness [the agencies and instrumentalities of control; the barriers and boundaries, be they territorial, social, or perceptual, which artificially construct difference where difference does not exist]; the foundation of this freedom is openness to others: the fullness of liberation, a *free gift* from Christ, is *communion* with God and with other men.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-22


God will serve us if we are willing to do the same; reciprocal responsibility [a reciprocity, a relationship, mutual action, dependence (reliance, trust); if we take, we negate - the 10 Commandments are the template, the conditions of life, an environment, God's environment - we have the right of free entrance, free habitation; the 10 Commandments are the means, the agency, of entrance into God's Family; not blind progress, nor misguided regress, but an ingress, a turning within, an invitation to enter, to claim our inherent rights - God's Law of Liberty is a responsibility to God, to ourselves, and to those around us, the whole Family of God - they are an achievement [by skill, work, courage and the faith of God as gift], an accomplishment [to make complete, perfect, the true sense of success].

Freedom from the constraints of man begins with a NO !! – God’s community is free-standing [resting on its own support, without attachment], and free-spoken [free in expressing ideas and opinions] – God invites study, discussion, reason, with freethinkers [free thought, free willed beings]; a Free Christian Community is one that refuses to consider, or treat, their fellowman and their environment as an adversary – the common embrace of God reveals worth as intrinsic and not dependent on success or power; God’s community is open to *all*, its blessings are self-evident – the past, the present and the future exist as one, they breathe together, and we do not have the option not to care – “no see, no hear, no care” is an affront to God and a crime against ourselves; we have an obligation to care, to be aware, to learn, to be accountable; those who claim the *warrant of scripture* receive and utilize the instruction of wisdom, justice and judgment, and equity, with the realization that we are all *one being*, one existence, and that each of us is an integral [necessary for completeness; essential] member of the same !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-23


God is NOT “principal” as generally understood and *used* by man [first in rank, authority, importance, degree, etc., a chief, head, governing or presiding officer, a person who employs another to act as his agent, rule over or upon]; God is a FATHER, and His SON is His express image – God is *servant authority* and mankind has ingress as sons and daughters of the Father, brothers and sisters of Christ, the firstfruits [the active Church, the foundational ekklesia, the *preaching and the witness*, the living Gospel of the Kingdom, the preparatory servant community] considered the very Bride of Christ, His helpmeet; the GOD FAMILY – God is the *principium* [a beginning, a principle; first principles, fundamentals] and as such is the ultimate source, the origin, the cause; God is the natural or original tendency, faculty, or endowment; God is fundamental truth, law, doctrine and motivating force, upon which others are based, ie., moral principles; God is rule of conduct, especially righteousness [adherence to God; integrity; uprightness]; God is an essential element, constituent, or quality, one that produces a specific effect [the active ingredient]; God is scientific law [the scripture of creation, the code of life, intelligent design (this term now co-opted by a fundamentalist definition)]; God is creator and upholds His creation – the universe is God’s tabernacle and the promise is man’s – the God Family is guided by the *high knowledge*, God’s own, within.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-24


God is *ONE*, Man is ONE, of one blood, of one nation, ISRAEL [all peoples will eventually become "spiritual Israel" and receive Salvation: "And if ye [be] Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” Gal. 3:29] – all of mankind shall be born into the Family of God, ONE COMMON FAMILY; God is NOT a respecter of persons, all are made in the image and likeness of God – there is one bread, one body, one spirit, one hope, one heart, one way, one soul, one mind, one mouth, one accord, one Lord, one Father, one faith, one baptism, one lawgiver, one law, one manner, one sacrifice, one offering, one mediator, one brethren, one in Jesus Christ, one image and likeness; God is the PRIMARY, the ONE !! – GOD the FATHER is the progenitor of ALL mankind !! – the human consanguinity [blood kinship]: ONENESS !!

Ephesians 3:14. For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole *family* [G3965] in heaven and earth is named. [Strong's Concordance, patria; lineage - kindred - family 1) lineage running back to some progenitor, ancestry 2) a race or tribe, ie., a group of families, all those who in a given people lay claim to a common origin. The Israelites which distributed into twelve tribes, descended from the twelve sons of Jacob; these were divided into families which were divided into houses 3) family, in a wider sense, nation, people.]

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-25


The Gospel is NOT a product, it is a way of life; the ekklesia, the church, is NOT a corporate structure, it is a social organism, a community of thought guided by God; we have been enslaved by a system, a category of thought (the hierarchical), the false way, the wrong (with its apparent evils all around us) vs. the true, the right, the community-congregation [our inherent right]; a simple, earnest, free Christianity based on *equality* [neither Jew nor Greek, neither bond nor free, neither male nor female - *all one* in Christ Jesus], eldership (servant example), personal zeal (sincerity), the teachings of Christ and the gifts of God [Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the *free*; 1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, [even so] minister the same one to another, as *good stewards* of the manifold grace of God].

A strong appeal to the religious conscience of the individual enlightened by scripture; an exalted conscience and the Bible at the expense of clerical intercession [secular and religious; man in the way of God]; truth, love, and conduct; God’s continuing creativity in our thoughts and deeds; God is the author of our salvation and of creation NOT man and his structures – the ekklesia strives to be worthy of the family name [for this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom *the whole family* in heaven and earth *is named*]; belief on His name carries with it all of the responsibilities and privileges of what His name(s) imply; we partake of the name(s), *they are our own* – the ekklesia is open and free, with a pure as crystal transparency that allows the Holy Spirit to shine through.

MM Book 1 Chapter 4-26


What fellowship, what communion, what concord, what possible agreement can we have with the unrighteousness of Mammon? – no man can serve two masters; we are instructed by God to come out from among this evil world, to separate, not touching the unclean thing [the corporate construct], not to be *unequally* yoked together; we are instructed to build *together* for an habitation of God through the Spirit, the household of God, fitly framed together as fellow citizens in the Kingdom of God, as sons and daughters in the very Family of God !! — the physical is reflection of the spiritual, they are lived and experienced together; this evil world-kosmos is a reflection of our spiritual illness !! – the corporate construct offers us the world, freedom of trade, the promise of riches that are just waiting for us to share, “all shall be thine” – they claim possession by their offer, as one cannot offer what one does not own, “for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it” – all that is required is our willing participation, our service; this offer of the world has been made once before:

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
