Three tests for determining truth Brent Cunningham blog 2 Comments Every religion, philosophy, or worldview makes truth-claims.
The abundant allegorical teachings of the Holy Bible What is the true nature of more light into the mysteries of human life and experiences than any other authority on theology or theosophy. Thus, the Holy Bible is our source of inspiration from which we draw our life's longing to lead fuller, more obedient and abundant lives.
To learn from the experiences of every character in the Holy Bible, from Adam and Eve to John in Patmos, and to follow the true revealed Word of God, is our only goal and our truest hope. Usually, I show these people the law s as promulgated by the Congress, decisions of various state and federal courts including the U.
Supreme Court, and other executive and administrative policy decisions affecting American Indian Tribes whose inherent tribal sovereignty has been a constant nightmare and an inconvenient truth to our politicians from the day the Vikings, Sebastian Cabot, Amerigo Vespucci, and other explorers set foot on our tribal lands.
I expect these people to read, examine and analyze these articles, findings, congressional debates, essays, reports, and decisions. I notice a sickening habit instead — they wait to hear negative reports about Indian tribes.
They love to read this negativity. They wallow in this sordid smear campaigns. Their lives are happier when they read such stupid reports over the Internet where pseudnyms and nom de guerre are used by scared writers wishing undeserved anonymity. There ought to be a law to disembowel these psychos while they are being hanged!
Recently, I had a New York attorney call me regarding tax exemptions for tribal corporations. I had earlier showed him the appropriate and applicable law regarding this issue. And he had the gall to tell me he was a tax attorney who never heard of section 17 of the Indian Reorganization Act of !!!
Such morons repeatedly walk into my professional life This is a friendly reminder to all those potentials who wish to seek my help. I promise you I will be outright rude when you call without checking out who we are and what we stand for, who I am, and what I stand for in the matrix of federal Indian law which is still evolving as a matter of first impression after odd years of oppression, depression and suppression by those who chose to emigrate here from Europe in the early s and sink lasting roots here without visas, travel documents or passports.
The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" - II Corinthians 3: President Adams recognized the sanctity, supremacy and sovereignty of God, and God's dominion over all things - this is Natural Law. One of the recurring messages in the Holy Bible is the dynamic that the people of God be nonconformists to the secular world - Deuteronomy There is ample rationale and reason behind this justification and mandate of God.
Small wonder that secular indoctrination works wonders upon us when it competes with the Word of God. We have become a nation of laws and a government of men.
We have some great laws, and some terribly unjust laws that are more than just flaws in man's thinking. Disobeying an unjust law finds safe and solid sanctuary in the Word of God as evidenced in Exodus 1: How many Puahs and Sipporahs are out there waiting to disobey an unjust law?
One of the laws of our land claims that Unjust secular laws are mentioned in Isaiah CJS "An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed" Shelby County, U.
We thank God for the United States Supreme Court in that it did, quite rarely, as in this case, separate the wheat from the chaff and get down to the truth of the matter in rendering a true verdict for real and measurable justice.
And, in America today, did you know that once an ecclesiastical tribunal church court, that is has made a decision, no civil court can disturb such decision? We cannot afford to be ignorant of our basic rights.
It is our duty to learn them, remember them, and to use them everyday of our lives. Our lives could depend on these basic rights especially when we know them and insist on enforcing them.
Yet, how many our students, or adults for that matter, really know the federal and state Constitutions? Did you know, for example, that once you have requested a church to solemnize your marriage, no civil court has the right to interfere even in matters relating to divorce, child custody, and property distribution because you have become a member of that church that got you married in the first instance.
But remember also the speed at which some "church folk" run into secular courts to obtain a divorce in a no-fault divorce state court! The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights has clearly underscored the fact that the secular government cannot make any law undermining the free exercise of religion.
This must be viewed as an open confession and admission by the supreme law of the land - the federal Constitution - that the Church is not to be interfered with, or intruded upon, by the three organs of secular government - the executive, the legislature, or the judiciary.
In other words, the supreme law of the land is saying to the Church - you are a coequal but separate sovereign. And I have made a law - a supreme law - identifying the fact that I cannot interrupt, intercede, or interfere with your affairs.a feedback process whereby nature favors one design over another, depending on whether it has an impact on reproduction.
chance mutations spontaneous changes in genes. When we understand our true nature, we begin to live from the source of true happiness, which is not mere happiness for this or that reason, but true inner joy.
When we know who we are, we allow the universe to flow through us with effortless ease, and our lives . What Eliot is suggesting is that the true nature of love is not based on an advantageous response, but on the sheer openness of one heart to another.

reality, as distinguished from any effect of art: a portrait true to nature. the particular combination of qualities belonging to a person, animal, thing, or class by birth.
