Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Be real with God and you'll become a SUCCESS too!
One of the reasons why our now global Dare 2 Be Different International - www.daretobedifferentskn.com organization continues to grow its global youth following and readership in leaps and bounds is simply because we PROMOTE THE TRUTH.
Many religious organizations preach religious laws and introduce new converts to religious laws instead of introducing them to GOD, teaching them SPIRITUALITY and encouraging them to follow Jesus' example of LOVE, GRACE and MERCY.
Some religious organizations promote that you have to worship on a Saturday while some say that Sunday is alright. If Dare 2 Be Different International changes our MAIN week's service to Tuesday Night at 8 pm, God isn't going to send us to hell. Not at all.
Some religious organizations promote that you should be filled with the holy ghost and talk in tongues, while others say that you must not talk in tongues without an interpreter. Who am I to judge? At the ministry that I lead, we do not talk in tongues. We always speak a language that our youths could properly and clearly understand and not confuse them. Time is precious and we are training YOUNG MINDS.
Some religious organizations say that females are not to wear pants and always be in hats, while others say that females can dress how ever they wish.
Some religious organizations screw up their face if some tatooed male or female finally decides to follow God and they are called to preach the gospel or sing on the worship team or lead a gospel dance group. Thus, this is why some folks prefer to remain part of an UNGODLY system because many of us who are suppose to be showing LOVE, GRACE and MERCY are some of the biggest hypocrites around.
Do you get my point? Religious laws have been confusing youths for decades and causing too much division. I have always postulated that RELIGION is far worst than POLITICS. While I fully agree that each organization must have particular rules and cultures, no organization should ever promote that if their following does not CONFORM to all their rules that they are going to go to HELL.
When such people and organizations do that, they make folks feel that GOD isn't a GOOD GOD at all. The Psalmist thought otherwise when he beckoned folks to trust God. He said, Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
God loves all! Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
I encourage my global youth following to be REAL with GOD and we encourage open and honest communication without reprimand. If they can't speak standard English like me, we don't condemn them if they express themselves in GHETTO language. Allowing people to talk and express themselves is a psychological healer and relaxer.
It's when we know how our youths and adults are thinking, then we are able to help them. As young as many of them are, we teach them to be REAL and OPEN and we HELP them. We talk about business, spirituality, sex, teenage pregnancy, gays, lesbians, politics, agriculture, evolution, careers, technology, education, EVERYTHING.
We share local, regional and global happenings. We talk and we know everything that is happening around us so we can make the best choices all the time. We are always WELL INFORMED. That's WISDOM. WE ARE A REAL GOSPEL MINISTRY.
God prefers people to be REAL!!! When you are real with GOD and real with OTHERS, that is the pathway to SUCCESS.
Too many church people are living a BIG LIE. They are one person or one character when they are around the CHURCH and its activities and another character or person when they are on the job or among friends chilling.
Spirituality and a relationship with GOD is a heart thing. It's a personal thing between YOU and YOUR GOD. It's being REAL!
Please don't be confused anymore. Try God. Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
At Dare 2 Be Different International, we promote that having asked God to save you through his son Jesus Christ, all you must do as our PLEDGE says is:
I AM AN EAGLE
I WILL TRUST GOD
I WILL FOLLOW JESUS' EXAMPLE
I WILL DO RIGHT
I WILL DO GOOD.
We teach that because we were born into a SINFUL nature, we are bound to sin. Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
We teach that when we fall, when we sin at times in WORD, THOUGHT or DEED, we must quickly ask God for forgiveness and aim to get back on the right track.
Be Real With God And You'll Become A Success Too.
I personally ENJOY being REAL with GOD all my life and enjoying the BLESSINGS, DELIVERANCES and SUCCESS that he sends to my life ever so often.
TRY GOD TODAY! Just be real!
