PERFECTION – THE ACME OF RELIGIOUS LIVING

Gen 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

It seems that striving for perfection and excellence in all that we do is being replaced with “everyone gets an ‘A'”,  everybody wins, and mediocrity is a good thing.  We have a good example of how to live our lives by learning about the life of Jesus in the “White Stone”.  He lived his life by the following of our Heavenly Father’s Will. However, there seem to be many who reject the concept and Truth of a loving Father God.  Consequently, people are feeling lost and alienated which is leading to the retrogression of our society.  There is no longer a “In God We Trust” belief, Faith, and most seem to have turned away from him, substituting “other” dependencies such as “In Government We Trust” [no Faith in God].  We are told that our Heavenly Father demands from us a striving for perfection.  When will we realize what we need to do?  What are we teaching our children?

The enlightened worlds all recognize and worship the Universal Father, the eternal maker and infinite upholder of all creation. The will creatures of universe upon universe have embarked upon the long, long Paradise journey, the fascinating struggle of the eternal adventure of attaining God the Father. The transcendent goal of the children of time is to find the eternal God, to comprehend the divine nature, to recognize the Universal Father. God-knowing creatures have only one supreme ambition, just one consuming desire, and that is to become, as they are in their spheres, like him as he is in his Paradise perfection of personality and in his universal sphere of righteous supremacy. From the Universal Father who inhabits eternity there has gone forth the supreme mandate, “Be you perfect, even as I am perfect.
