(Founded Sept 12, 2001)
There is a Universal Intelligence that exists in all matter. In all living things there exists an inborn Intelligence which constantly strives to help organisms adapt to their ever-changing environment. The inborn Intelligence is a subset of the larger Universal Intelligence. In order for intelligence to be utilized in our dimension of existence it must have force to link it to matter for its possible expression.
Total reality is the entire sum of all which exists in every dimension of the universe whether it is perceptible or not. Total perceived reality is that which is “realized” by the five human senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and vision.
In The Church of Common Sense, no one shall be judged by the “food” or “drink” which they may or may not consume. Members of The Church of Common Sense are not required to honor specific “religious holidays.”
It is specifically understood that “Universal Intelligence” is everywhere and is a part of all living and non living things at all times. All living and non living things are therefore, by definition, a part of the same Universal Intelligence.
Any living being can therefore communicate with Universal Intelligence instantly and without the help of a minister, priest or other beings ordained by this or any other church. We are all ordained when we are born into this world.
It is wrong to treat humanity or any of the living beings on this or any other planet badly. It is the position of this church and its members to always try to “DO THE RIGHT THING.”
It is against the basic tenets and practices of this church and its members to receive any medical immunizations. A medical procedure/immunization may be allowed, in certain situations, if a member of the congregation gives his or her informed consent to a medical doctor or hospital.
There are no formal written “prayers” or communications in The Church of Common Sense. Anytime a communication with “Universal Intelligence” is required by a member of this church he or she may initiate such a contact in the manner or format that is most suitable for the member.
