(Founded Sept 12, 2001)
There is a Universal Intelligence that exists in all matter. In all living things there exists an inborn intelligence that 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 nonliving things at all times. All living and nonliving 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 other humans 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 attempt to “DO THE RIGHT THING.”
It is against the basic tenets and practices of this church for its members to receive any medical immunizations/vaccines without members’ informed consent.
There are no formal written “prayers” or communications in The Church of Common Sense. If communication with “Universal Intelligence” is required by a member of this church, he or she may initiate such contact in the manner or format that is most suitable for the member.
Members of the Church of Common Sense can simultaneously belong to any other church of their choosing. We welcome and embrace all the good people in the world.
