STATEMENT OF FAITH
Church of Common Sense
We believe in One Benevolent God, One Source Energy of All that Is...
Jesus' best examples were that of Unconditional Love, Compassion and Healing Inclusively. What if we simply focused on these 3 Common Sense actions and just perhaps we're all praying to the same Benevolent God? How different our world would be if we all abided by such Loving Inclusivity!!!
Jesus the Good Shepherd ~ John 10: 15even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16"I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd. 17"For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again.…
We believe that Jesus Christ walked the Americas after Ascension teaching Native Tribes His simple Truths of Unconditional Love, Compassion and Healing. That we are to Reach, Teach and Heal following these simple Truths through Prayer/Meditation and our Common Sense use of God given Organic Foods/Medicines/Sacraments.
Jesus stated that We could/should/would do greater miracles than He!!! What has changed since His time but our lack of Faith/Frequency (synchronizing our Heart Mind and Emotion) and thereby our connection with God, the Source Energy that creates worlds. John 14:12-14 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
We believe the body is Gods Temple: 1 Cor 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. The Need for Self-Discipline: 1 Cor 9:24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
We believe that everything we Ingest, Inhale, Think and Do is Sacred for our Temples Health, Mobility, Longevity and overall Balance Within: Man was Divinely designed to eat primarily an Alkaline Plant-Based Diet.
We believe that every-time man turns 1st to man-made chemical potions called pharmaceuticals, processed foods, makeup, etc. its like a slap to the face of God. Saying out right that God didn’t create correctly with His world full of Natural Organics, that ‘Man Knows Better than God’ through synthetics, chemical potions, unnatural plant animal and human manipulations, etc.
In our effort to promote Common Sense Self-Care we agree with and support the personal intention of these 3 quotes:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~ Hippocrates
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” ~ Thomas Edison
“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” ~ Albert Einstein
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Exodus 30: 23-25: 1446 BC
“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid Myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant Cinnamon, 250 shekels of fragrant Kaneh-Bosm [Cannabis], 500 shekels of Cassia—all according to the sanctuary shekel—and a hin of olive oil. Make these into a Sacred Anointing Oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the Sacred Anointing Oil.’”
Converted into today’s measurements:
Liquid Myrrh 500 shekels 5.75 kg (12.68 lbs)
Cassia 500 shekels 5.75 kg (12.68 lbs)
Cinnamon leaf 250 shekels 2.875 kg (6.34 lbs)
Cannabis flowers 250 shekels 2.875 kg (6.34 lbs)
Olive oil 1 hin 6.5 liters (1.72 gallons)
[In 1936, Sula Benet, a Polish etymologist from the Institute of Anthropological Sciences in Warsaw revealed solid evidence of the Hebrew use of cannabis. The word “Cannabis had previously been thought to be of Scythian origin as Scythians first brought the plant to Europe, but Benet showed it has much earlier origin in Semitic languages like Hebrew. “In the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament there are references to Hemp, both as incense, which was an integral part of religious celebration, and as an intoxicant.” Benet demonstrated that the word for cannabis is “kaneh-bosm”, and in traditional Hebrew “kaneh” or “kannabus.” The root “kan” here means “reed” or “hemp”, while “bosm” means “aromatic.” This word appears five times in the Old Testament (Exodus, Song of Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel) and has been mistranslated as “calamus”, a common marsh plant with little monetary value that does not have the qualities or value ascribed to “kaneh-bosm.” The error occurred in the oldest Greek translation of the Hebrew bible, the Septuagint in the 3rd century BC, and was repeated in translations that followed.
Bible-believers, specifically, need to thoroughly examine this issue in light of the etymology (the origin of a word and the historical development of its meaning), and the likelihood of mis-translation of “qenah” in the King James Version. WHAT IF God intended Cannabis (as opposed to calamus) to be part of the anointing oil?
While Cannabis is non-toxic (not a single death has ever been directly attributed to it, despite much effort being given to document such a fatality), calamus is most definitely a toxin. The FDA banned calamus from uses in food and medicines in 1968 as calamus contains more than 75% asarone. Asarone is a poison which has been shown to cause cancer, and has ill effects on heart, liver and kidney functions. This toxin in callamus is used for pest control. Why would God specify a large quantity of a poison be used in holy anointing oil?]
Kaneh-Bosm also found in:
Song of Songs 4: 10-15; 950 BC, Isaiah 43: 24; 711 BC, Jeremiah 6:20 627 BC, Jeremiah 44:15-23; 588 BC, Ezekiel 27: 18-19; 586 BC

Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Matthew 5:9 - Blessed [are] the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Galatians 3:28 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Jesus Asserts His Deity
22At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem; 23it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon. 24The Jews therefore gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, “How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father’s name, these bear witness of Me. 26“But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep. 27“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. 29“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30“I and the Father are one.”
31The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” 34Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? 35“If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37“If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.”
