The Golden Rule - Rules

Judge your fellow man, or woman, by the Golden Rule, not by the gold standard.  

Throughout time over 270 different civilizations around the world 
tell the story of a world flood, and of a family in a boat full of animals 
that was saved to replenish the Earth.
After the flood, the Sacredness of life is established in our
 CREATOR’S Universal Rainbow / Noahic, Covenant, 
and the 'Golden Rule' is it's heart (Gen.9:5-6).   



The Golden Rule is Universal!  

       The methods or lessons may vary according to the culture, 
but the sin of pride, 
the moral teachings of “the Golden Rule,” 
the spiritual conflict of good against evil, 
and an afterlife where man will finally find justice, 
can be found in every major religion.  
The Golden Rule is at the heart of spiritual maturity!

 Let’s Have a Golden Rule Week!

 “Men will wrangle for religion, write for it, fight for it, die for it, 
anything but live for it.”  - Charles Caleb Cotton

        Today, it pains me to see these sometimes very heated debates regarding morality, the Ten Commandments and government.  Even the evolutionists can hold hands with the concept that we are all endeavoring to become a little better today then we were yesterday.  It seems that if they were really interested in teaching morality, but the reference to GOD in the first four commandments make some people nervous, then at the very least, we could all agree on promoting the Golden Rule.  Every religion has one, and they essentially all say the same Divine message. But they can’t even agree on that – go figure.        

        In our Judeo-Christian culture the Golden Rule begins in ancient times, when a rabbi was challenged by a royal skeptic to teach him the Torah while standing on one foot.  The quick-witted Rabbi Hillel responded, while holding up his foot, “What is hateful to yourself do not do to another.  This is the whole Torah, go and study it, the rest is commentary.” 

        Later in time, recorded in Matthew 22:37-40, another famous rabbi, called Yahshua (commonly known as Jesus of Nazareth), would quote Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 while summarizing the Laws of the Kingdom in much the same way, it became known as the Golden Rule, “...You shall love your neighbor as yourself...” 

Teach your children the Golden Rule 
and the world will thank you.
