You may have attempted to keep an open mind as you have listened to the justifications many people give for why they support the current President of the United States.

On June 6, 2018 I posted one of my “Notes from The Masters Class” at:

Notes From the Masters Class, June 6, 2018

In this short video I compared the moral leadership, shown by Robert Kennedy on the night Dr. Martin Luther King died in 1968, with that of the current President and his leadership of the so-called Mexican immigration crisis. I concluded there was no moral, spiritual or otherwise valid reason for the establishment of children’s prisons and the irreversible separation of parents and children legally seeking political asylum.

The reality is we are treating our Latin American neighbors, who we have danced this waltz with for at least 200 years, in a way that is nothing short of the worst Dicken’s novel about children you could ever imagine.

If you are committed to being a Christian and endeavor to follow The Christ as close as you can, you know that central to The Christ’s teaching is the power and necessity of The Golden Rule.  This globally espoused rule forces you to place yourself in another’s shoes and ask how you might want them to treat you if you were in their position.

On a Christian’s best day in life, there is no way to justify the treatment of these parents and children as young as ten months old. Period.

If you can honestly say that as a Christian you believe our current President’s words and policies in this case are correct and justified, as many do, then God Bless You.  You are going to need that blessing when the tables turn, as inevitably they will.

America has begun the long, painful fall from the grace that has been our rock since 1776.  Cheerleading and supporting and praying for this moment in history, are the ardent Lost Christians who seem to have forgotten The Golden Rule.

If you are a Christian who still seeks to practice The Golden Rule, you have one tool at your disposal to compensate for these Lost Christians who also believe that all bets are off on any of the old rules, because the Christ is returning at any moment, but the reality is He is already here.  He never even left, as He promised He would be with us always.

Forgiveness is that tool.  Jesus demonstrated that from the cross, when He asked His Father to forgive the very people who had manipulated the power of the State to get Him executed for His radical teachings which contradicted the power and policies of the Jewish leaders.

His reason for asking God’s forgiveness for these people? “Father, forgive them for they do not understand anything about what is going on here. They are ignorant and cannot make good decisions.”  This paraphrase of The Christ’s Last Words reveals the profound spiritual blindness of the participants in the execution.

This moment in America’s fall from grace reveals that we have not yet learned what The Christ came to demonstrate:  LOVE IS ALL THERE IS.  All else is an illusion.

There may still be time to learn this, but I caution you:  There is not one shred of evidence in all of known history to suggest that an empire beginning its fall was able to right itself.

If it is possible to right ourselves from this crisis we have voted into action, it must begin with you and me and forgiveness. Forgive everybody. Period. Without having done that, your ticket into heaven is null and void.

Notes From the Masters Class, June 6, 2018

We have a real crisis in America today. It is a moral crisis. For those of us who lived through the Viet Nam War and were exposed to brilliant moral leadership, today’s crisis is as much about leadership as it is about asylum seekers knocking at the door of America for what we hope is still freedom.

These two articles will give you sense of perspective about where we are right now.

A little over 50 years ago, right after the assignation of Dr. Martin Luther King, we heard what is perhaps the greatest speech in American History. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, running for President of the United States, climbed up on a flat bed truck, surrounded by a potentially violent crowd of black people and made this speech. Looking back on what was said that night and what was accomplished, it is hard to imagine today anything of similar power or wisdom being spoken by our current leader. We have devolved. We no longer talk about moral values, nor do we ever hear encouraging words for unity in America from the hearts of our leadership.

Join with me today to let our natural American goodness shine through this horrible treatment of these powerless human beings with love and compassion for those much worse off than we are.

Steven R. Vazquez, Ph.D., LPC-S, LMFT is our next live Interviewee on Thursday, May 17 at 7 PM at Unity Church of the Hills

This is our remarkable interview with Dr. Vazquez on Kundalini. A follow-up with Anne Beversdorf will be included soon.

Meet the Grandons! Unity Church of the Hills new Co-Ministers

In April 2018 we interviewed The Reverends Brian and Kristen Grandon.  This interview is a remarkable introduction to these two dynamic and brilliant people who are about to lead this already advanced church into a new era of impact that will resonate around the country.

This is worth your taking the time to watch in its entirety.

America is on the ride of our lives, and if you are like me, you spend a lot of time trying to understand what this is all about.  After living under the leadership of one of the best educated and most highly respected US Presidents and observing that we were able to have eight years of almost no scandals, and our country and our President and his family were loved around the world, we now find ourselves losing friends and allies in every part of the world, becoming the laughing stock of the major powers and being led by a man who appears to have no clue, from day to day, what he is doing or why.

His Presidency is characterized by a series of lies (some count more than 3000 lies told by the President in the first 13 months of his first term), sex scandals, millions of dollars sent on golf trips for which his hotels and golf clubs charge the American people enormous sums, which go right into his pockets.

He has broken treaties and promises made by America and in so doing placed the world itself in mortal danger. Twenty years from now, this white man will be hated around the world for his refusal to value unassailable science which lets us know that we have a global crisis on our hands, which will only grow worse under this man’s arrogant, ignorant and blustery leadership coupled with our failure to honor God’s creation as Holy.

He has blatantly ignored and abused many of the Christian norms that have been a part of American leadership since the beginning of our country.  Remarkably about 40% of the American voting public seems to think he is a doing a great job.

A majority of this 40% identifies themselves as Evangelical Christians.  They even go so far as to say that, without question, he has been ordained by God Herself to this position and for this purpose.

And you know what, they may be right.  An old Rabbi friend of mine used to say: “God works funny.” This may be one of those moments. God may have chosen a man who thumbs his nose at God to work out Her purpose in this modern, fear- filled world.

Who is to say that by pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate agreements, God chose this man to set us off on a course that hastens the day when this global calamity, which we have all known about for most of our adult lives, occurs.

Perhaps God wants us to confront this tragedy looming on the horizon much sooner because She is tired of us not taking Her word seriously.  This also applies to the threat of nuclear war, of which America is the most powerful proponent.

God may be showing us She can use the least qualified man to ever hold the Presidency of the United States to change history for the better by making all of these tragic mistakes and accelerating the arrival of this looming global tragedy.

When it arrives, this tragedy will require the best of each of us and a powerful life of prayer to honor this God who created it all.

And when you pray, ask God to let this bitter cup pass us by.
