Brother Michael's Notebook

I want to again stress we are not an ordination assembly line. Recently we switched our name from Universal Life Church World Headquarters, because we did not want to be tied in with the other non-Christian entity that ordains anybody, including dogs, cats and etc. We believe ordination is a sacrament, same as is marriage. Both marriage and ordination involve taking vows. 

Marriage is the exchange of lifetime vows with a member of the opposite sex. Ordination is making a lifetime vow to serve Jesus Christ as his liaison. These other online ordination assembly lines make a mockery of the sacrament of ordination and unlike them we will not ordain just anyone.

I do not care what people think of me or if they believe I am judgmental because I turn them down for ordination. Not everyone in this world is cut out to be a physician, an attorney or say an NBA superstar like Lebron James or Kobe Bryant. Whereas just the same NOT everyone is cut out to be an ordained minister. No different than when an employer turns down a job applicant, I am not judging the individual any more than an employer does.

I will not belittle the sacrament by just ordaining anyone. These others are simply looking to make money. The more they ordain, the more money they make. The Universal One Church needs money as does any Church, but we are not greedy. We do need to rely on monetary contributions over and above the money we receive for ministry credentials. Why? We do not ordain just anybody and we ordain a select few. So please find it in your heart to support us monthly with your contribution. The Universal One Church wants to maintain honor, integrity and dignity for the sacrament, the institution and of course you. We want our ministers to be looked at as the professionals they are!

Please remember as Ministers we need to be neutral politically, even though liberalism and sin is rampant in today's society. We have men wanting to marry men! We have men looking to sodomize other men! What happened to Johnny Carson and his doorknob jokes, was that not sufficient? We have a former male Olympic athlete wanting to be a woman now after being a man for 70 years! Our Supreme Court, you know - it's the Courthouse that says "In God we Trust." Apparently their Bible has had a few pages ripped out by some liberals. We have a Pro-Choice President who feels that the murder of young children are not enough, we need to add insult to injury and sell their body parts too, all in the name of the almighty buck. The same almighty buck that allows our POTUS to sell arms to the jihadists and terrorists, while looking to implement gun control against Americans.  He is not just targeting Americans, but he targets Christians as well through IRS audits. The man we call President takes his attack on Christians abroad looking to destroy those of the Jewish faith as well by supporting the enemies of Israel. I'm surprised we do not have an ISIS or Nazi Flag flying over the White House!

It is time to take back our country. It is time for God to return to the White House and it is time for We The People to once again be able to call our home, the greatest country on planet earth. God will lead us to elect the man to do this and NO COURT or INDIVIDUAL will stop it. Enough is enough, this is the United States of America and Sodom and Gomorrah are not cities therein. Nor should anyone be allowed to replicate such behavior that caused God to destroy such cities,  simply because the Constitution calls for equal rights. We are permitted freedom of speech too. However that does not allow us the right to open up  the doors of a movie theatre and yell fire

Genesis 19 (KJV)

19 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.

14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:

19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;

25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:

28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

Brother Michael's Notebook:

For those of you who follow us on Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook, you know that we publish a special branded post we refer to as:

:)..........Universal One Church - In The News
We Deliver the Good News & Positive News

Sometimes we publish up to several articles a day, that feature wholesome, refreshing and inspirational stories from throughout the world. Why? With the Universal One Church we extend our reach to well beyond the USA, so it is only fitting we feature stories from throughout the world not just here in the USA.

Reverend Cesidio Tallini who splits his time between the USA and Italy serves as our International Ambassador and is a member of the Committee of Religious NGO's to the United Nations. Reverend Cesidio Tallini helps us out each day as well with his international news stories that he distributes to his followers and we are very grateful. It takes a great deal of effort for him to sift through all the news stories looking for ones we find acceptable.

Setting the rest of the world on the back burner for just a moment, as today we have some very positive news from our own home office right here in Carrabelle, Florida. The Big News Story involves my best friend, companion and soulmate, Theresa.

It has been no secret that Theresa has had an ongoing issue with alcohol and chemical dependency. She has been in and out of rehab or prison several times over the course of the past 15 years we have been together.

This last time she appeared before a Judge, the Court finally got smart and ordered rehabilitation. As part of the program Theresa was able to choose to go back to school. Theresa chose on her own free will, with absolutely no third party involved in her decision making process, to go to seminary for Theology and Roman Catholicism.

To my absolute amazement in less than a year she completed the course of study and received her degree in Theology. Don't get me wrong, Theresa has an extremely strong Christian Faith and is very intelligent, however courses in Theology and Catholicism are not easy by any stretch of the imagination. Theresa has never even been in a Roman Catholic Church before. Her accomplishment is nothing short of an amazing feat and I sincerely believe one that received divine intervention and the blessing of the Holy Spirit.

Alcohol and Drug Addiction happens to individuals from all walks of life. Financial status has no bearing on addiction, it happens among the more affluent, the middle class and to those struggling to make ends meet, this includes the homeless population.

Just for an example I met Noelle Bush through Theresa. Noelle Bush who herself has had addiction issues is the daughter to the former Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush who incidentally is running for President. Noelle by the way is in Orlando, Florida and she is doing quite well for herself.

An addict is not scum or low class, an addict is an individual like you or me that has an illness. It is no different than an addiction to cigarettes or coffee. An addict is not a second class citizen and addiction can happen to any family, anywhere, at any time.

Based on my experiences over the course of the past 15 years, I tried tough love and that is a huge mistake. You don't ever tell an addict to get straight or get out. Love is unconditional, I have loved no woman on this planet more than I love Theresa. I will tell you this here and now, instead of turning an addict away as I have done, you need to open up your arms wide, accept it, face it and you deal with it. It may cause some issues and inconveniences. But whoever invented "Tough Love" does not have a clue about God and his unconditional love that he has for each of his children.

Drug addiction is an illness, if your spouse was having a heart attack or stroke, would you walk away from him or her. No of course not. Don't make the same mistake I made with someone who has an alcohol or drug issue. Many times an addict is the way they are because they have a low self-esteem or rejection issue. By telling such an individual to leave or to get out, you are only adding fuel to the fire that created the addiction to begin with.

I am very lucky and extremely fortunate to have the love of such a beautiful woman. I thank God she has forgiven me for being such a JERK. There is no other way I can describe myself for telling the love of my life to get out because she was an addict. For better or worse means for better or worse. Even though Theresa and I were not married, for better or worse still applies.

Theresa will be assuming more of a role as she continues to recover and completes her rehab. Theresa is part of this churches future as is her son, William who has a keen interest and is a graduate of a seminary program in Alabama. Between our six children, several look to follow in our footsteps. Serving God runs in our families, with my sisters and even Theresa's daughter, Nikki. When Nikki was younger, she professed to wanting to be a Nun. For now Nikki has been blessed and is looking forward to having her first child this coming November.

Folks, you did not get ordained to do nothing. Ordination, like marriage is a sacrament. Instead of making a vow of commitment to your partner as with marriage, with ordination it is a vow of commitment you make to God. If you can't self-motivate yourself to carry through your conviction to serve God, you need to self-critique yourself as a Christian and seek help.

We do not expect you to do it on your own. Motivation to take action must come from within, however we are here to help you. Feel free to call us at the rectory day or night. We do not live in a Church, like you we live in a home we call a rectory. If we are not at home, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Don't forget our Universal One Church Webstore. We offer the basic needs for our ministers such as handbooks for pastors, wedding officiants and for all aspects of ministry.

Brother Michael's Notebook 

Together the Universal One Church we mourn the loss of these four United States Marines. Our condolences to the victims, the friends and the families. They each will remain within our thoughts and prayers. Let us also pray for each and every American to enable a better understanding of the why such needs to take place on American soil as well as to provide to us the strength, courage and faith to forgive. For it is forgiveness that will allow us to rise above our enemies and to defeat them.

Alcohol and Drug Issues in Today's Society effect individuals from all walks of life. The Universal One Church cares and many of our ministers have dedicated their lives to others who like them have had alcohol and/or drug issues.


Rev. John Robin from Modesto, California Affiliate is a former crack/cocaine/crystal meth addict. Twenty years clean, John has received recognition from throughout the world in helping those inflicted with such addictions. Reverend John Robin's vocation of helping others with drug and alcohol addiction includes not only his duties as an ordained minister, but also as the Chairman at Stanislaus County Advisory Board On Substance Abuse Programs and previously with California Mid State Regional Service Committee. Watch For Rev. John Robin, coming soon to the Universal One Church Radio Network.

Rev. Randall Smith also is slated to appear on the Universal One Church Radio Network with a similar program. Rev. Randall Smith heads up ParentsofAddictedChildren.com


From Reverend Randall Smith - THE HISTORY OF PAC
          
Parents of Addicted Children was started by a husband and father of four sons.  Of the four sons, two of them started doing drugs and became addicts. When I first found out they were doing drugs I didn’t want to believe it. Unfortunately, it was true. I didn’t know what to do, where to go or who to talk to. Then I thought of my high school coach, who I knew went through addiction with his daughter. He guided me to the proper professionals to talk to. From there the long journey began.

My wife and I have gone through almost everything a parent of an addict can go through. Both of my sons were in rehab at the same time. They both contemplated suicide. They stole and sold most of my wife’s jewelry and were dealing to support their habits. Both totaled a vehicle. I was investigated by DYFS. This and much more happened over a six year period.

Along the way, it became clear to me that the only way to make it through this painful and confusing time was to become educated and have a good support system. Education is very important so parents can understand the addict and their role in the addict’s recovery. A support system is a necessity! Without it your emotions will run rampant. You will feel alone, confused, depressed etc. Your child’s addiction, and actions will affect you both emotionally and physically. You need to help yourself first before you can help them!


CLEARLY SOCIETY NEEDS TO CHANGE THESE ALARMING TRENDS
MINISTERS SUCH AS JOHN ROBIN & RANDALL SMITH ARE DOING JUST THAT
THE UNIVERSAL ONE CHURCH IS VERY PROUD OF THESE INDIVIDUALS

Mission Statement: 

"The Universal One Church defends the unborn, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, educates the young, welcomes refugees, and cares for the sick, both at home and abroad. They believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God. The Universal One Church is born, one in Christ, with a precise, but open identity, that embraces the whole world, without exception" 

Ordination 

"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."

Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry - become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant? We provide ordination to men and women enabling work in all facets of Christian Ministry within the USA, Canada, UK, Africa, South America, Germany, India, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, China, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world.

Brother Michael's Notebook 

Folks we have a serious situation on our hands, that even the most optimistic individual cannot deny. Our world is slowly shifting away from God. Even some Christians and Christian Churches are opting to go against teachings of the Bible. Condonation of same sex marriage is just as bad as condoning abortion or the murder of innocent children. Abortion in God's eyes is no different than members of the terrorist group ISIS slitting the throats of Christians. Thou shalt not kill. Which part of this do abortionists or mothers who murder their child do not understand. 

Why is this happening?

In a marriage if you lose respect and trust, the marriage is over with. I believe it is therefore rational to think this holds true for an individual's relationship with God as well. Of course God would never lose respect or trust for one of his children. However, in today's world I believe God's children are losing respect and trust for God and Why?

I believe there is many attributing factors, but one of the biggest is the loss of respect for and trust in the Church. While the Church is just a building and leaders within are only human, their sins have been too great, too frequent and too many for most to overlook. Wherefore this loss of respect and trust for the Church has created issues between individuals and God as the Church serves as God's liaison. People view the Church as God's House and they look to the Church for perfection and sinless behavior from those associated with it.

The Roman Catholic Church since the bicentennial (1976).

1.) It is presumed Pope John Paul I was murdered.

2.) Pope Benedict XVI stepped down, not because of health, but it is presumed because of his involvement in the sex abuse cover-up while he was still Joseph Ratzinger.

3.) 4% of all of Roman Catholic Clergy were accused or found guilty of sexual abuse of children.

4.) Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops within the Roman Catholic Church were found guilty of covering up these heinous crimes.

5.) These crimes of sexual abuse of minor children by Roman Catholic clergy continues still today, most recently in the Archdiocese of St Paul, MN.

It has not just been the Roman Catholic Church that has seen such a breakdown in leadership. It hasn't just been a breakdown within the Catholic Church, but in a number of Churches as well as in both political parties within the USA. Leadership from within both Church and State has been highly ineffective and suspect for many years.

6.) Taking Prayer from Schools.

7.) Roe vs Wade, Legalizing Murder

8.) Same Sex Marriage Legalized.

9.) The Democrats are supporting abortion, same sex marriage and etc.

10.) The Republicans are just as bad supporting war, discrimination and greed.

My suggestion is regardless of what is happening around us, stay true to the teachings of the Bible. Remember what the Bible says about the narrow gate. Do not fall victim to what maybe the popular or trendy choice. Do not let yourself take the bait, hook, line and sinker.


Of course our God is a loving God, he loves his children. But you cannot attempt to take advantage of that love, by supporting homosexuality, abortion, same sex marriage, greed and by committing other sins. The Bible is very clear, we will be held accountable. If you are a homosexual, if you support it in any way, YOU WILL NOT go to heaven. AGAIN - The Bible is very, very clear on this subject matter! PLEASE - I beg of you do not be stupid. Homosexuals are spewing a bunch of nonsense and they are attacking the credibility of our Bible. Only evil would do so, these people are possessed by demons.



IT IS NOT RATIONAL AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING FOR A MAN TO WANT TO INSERT HIS PENIS INTO ANOTHER MAN'S ANUS. AN ANUS IS TO VACATE BODILY WASTE, TOXIC BODILY WASTE. IT IS NOT A WAY TO EXPRESS LOVE. MY GOD IN HEAVEN HOW SICK IS THAT THOUGHT?

Just because your family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances and the majority within the world around you may be going to "HELL IN A HANDBASKET" that does not mean you need to follow suit. Instead as a Universal One Church Minister I ask of you to stand up to this evil, to stand up for Christ and to stand together with your fellow ministers united in our attempt to save as many souls of God's children as we can.

It is not easy to withstand evil, many a nights I lay awake asking of Jesus Christ to give me the strength and the resolve to withstand this evil. It is through Christ, that he will lead us to eternal life. Trust in Jesus Christ to overcome sin, regardless of who around you may fall victim to satan. Don't you ever forget it is through Christ and only through Jesus Christ that will lead us each to his Kingdom of Heaven.

Absolutely none of us got ordained without good reason. For myself it was a calling, one that dates back to my earliest childhood. Other kids and friends wanted to be doctors, lawyers, cowboys, policemen and etc., I wanted to be a Priest. For many of you it is the same, you became ordained because it is a calling, you have a strong urge to help others.

On the other hand for some of you ordination was sought simply to enable you to marry couples, which is perfectly ok in God's eyes. Just keep in mind you cannot just get ordained to marry one couple. Just because the County Clerk or wedding authority accepts a marriage license, this by itself does not make the marriage legal. If the marriage ends up being contested in Court, more than likely the Judge will annul a marriage that was officiated by an individual who got ordained to do just one marriage. Ordination is to become a minister, it is not to officiate a wedding!

Speaking about marriage, what do you think of our newest Marriage Certificate below? We offer twelve other certificates as well, all come in a convenient six pack and you will not find a lower cost marriage certificate anywhere! We also have Marriage Certificates for those brought together within the Roman Catholic Rite of Marriage as well. As a Minister of the Universal One Church you do have the authority to perform a Roman Catholic Wedding, one that will be most definitely recognized by the Vatican. This does not mean we are Roman Catholic, it just means we have connections within the Vatican.

For most of us here in the USA we are in the midst of our summer season. Here in Florida that means temperatures in the 90's for the next two months. Wouldn't you know it, just as I typed that the Holy Spirit tried being funny and a Heat Advisory has been issued for Carrabelle.  However the way I see it, this summer heat will be like a polar artic cold front in the dead of winter in comparison to what those who defy God and the teachings within the Bible will experience. Nothing gives anyone the right to change what the Bible says, or to attempt to divert consequences for our actions because God is a loving God. Have a great week folks and may the Good Lord bless each of you!

Yours in Christ!

~ Brother Michael
