It's simply not true. The first step is to be responsible for your own life. The second
step is to hold your government accountable not only fo its promises, but for its verity
in its claims to be acting in your best interests, as well as when they claim we are a
nation under God... if we are such a nation, do our actions reflect the ways and means of
the example of Christ, the 10 Commandments, and the Golden Rule?

As a young boy, learning what it meant to be Christian and all, no one ever said
anything about Jesus being God. Knowing what I know now, It's not a stretch, and I'm not
referrring to personal experience, but in having educated myself.
On a personal level, though, in the process of becoming... the things I said about
trying to explain duality, quadrality, etc.. it really is quite an experience... another
thing I wonder about, in terms of what other people experience.
What is interesting to me, in a sort of abstract intellectual way, is thinking about
how the Holy Spirit is often experienced by those who feel inspired or moved in the
knowledge of Him... and then, for me, I add the spirit of Chuck, and the being of
Chuck... the result of influences of the spirits of Jesus and God Almighty, the Father...
and the experiences of my life in this time... many times, I can tell because of
the perspective of the thought that God and I are directly connected - that I am His
vessel, God in the flesh - and still, to me, it is as a vessel being used, not me, myself,
personally, but His Son, a servant fully surrendering himself to be used as God's servant
and representative to this world.
I know that people expect me to be Jesus, but I am the "white stone with a new
name", Chuck, and I say I am Christ not to reject who I am as some will see me,
and I undersand that, but I still say, I am a man, privileged to be blessed by God's trust
and the work He has provided me to do.
I see troubles that will pass. But more, I see wonderful times ahead as those who have
exploited humanity are dis-empowered, and the citizens of this world are truly empowered
as God intended in this, His Kingdom of God.
I decided today that if God was singing a song continuously throughout
the universe, it very well might sound like this

Sometimes, I think it's a real shame how I've been so many places and met
so many people, and for one reason or another, was put in the position of having not to
walk away without looking back, not necessarily because I reject them or they reject me,
because I can honestly say I've enjoyed so many things along the way.
Objectively, I like to think that it's because in my journey, in my road
of life, it had been important for me to experience people and things without being
taken in by them, deterred or kept from the next lesson I was needing or required to
But for whoever I may have touched or become acquainted with along the
wya, who may have felt I had forgotten them or resented them, there are many more
things that I've loved about places and people in this world than I have ever had
As pragmatic as I may seem sometimes, as silly as I may seem sometimes, as
cold as I may seem sometimes, I really do feel and think and love very, very deeply in
lots of different ways. And I really do never stop loving anyone or anything in any way.
Regardless of the way the world works, or the events that nudge us down the road in the
human race. I like it that way. It keeps love alive. At least in my world.

2/15/2009 3:14pm - I just wanted to mention... I felt a little vindicated last night..
like alot of people, I htought he Second Coming was supposed to be this big supernatural
event... and I kept wondering as I always do, is this maybe proof that I'm not Christ...
cuase to me it's way too important to want to take the chance of misleading people... and
I wondered how people would question that I've been out here all this time and people
didn't know... just like techincally being foundd out the streets, homeless, like
the Bible said.. except who knows? People who don't seem to be the ones who'd want people
to find out... so I chuckle a little... one more thing.
Last night, I did a little Bible reading, and accidentally came across Revelations 3:3
Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.
If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt
not know what hour I will come upon thee.
I saw the part about... if thou shalt not watch.. I was joking last night that I was
actually thinking I was keeping an eye open my entire like, and in this respect, I came
upon myself as a thief... :} It's hard to expect anyone to just accept who I am, despite
how many it appears could bear witness if they were willing... Still, that no one
seriously engages in the conversation or inquiry is a little confusing to me, and a bit
worrisome. A little sad.

I understand God's frustrations with the world more and more... not frustrations,
like emotional frustrations and outbursts... frustrations, like obstacles placed in His

with it. But understanding that it takes time for pieces to fall into place in their
Still, I regret all that happened that could have been different had I known long
ago... I wish I had done more Biblical studies, and yet understand why it's appropriate
that I didn't. I wish I was a younger man taking all these things on, and realize the
importance of my own maturity and education and doing as God asked at the time of His
choosing... and even understanding why now would be the right time, in due time... but it
would never be the right time if people choose not to believe what they claim to have
