Love, Faith & Stewardship
1 Thank Elohim for all of your blessings, from the depths of your heart; and with purity of purpose ask for your righteous needs, with humility and integrity, and they shall be manifested unto you within the purposes of God.
2 You shall neither worship, nor pray to, nor venerate, false gods or graven images, or men or governments or kings, or spirits or angels, or anything or anyone that is, except Elohim.
3 You shall not curse or swear at all, or use the name of Elohim in vain, in any form; but cultivate a sweet disposition, wherein a curse is alien to your spirit.
4 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you may labor, and do all of your work; but the seventh day is the day of Elohim. On that day you shall not work, but gather together with the Children of Light that you might edify and uplift one another, and renew your covenants, and share knowledge of Elohim and of the paths of Celestine Light. Let this also be a day for the family to come together and commune with one another with full attention, to increase their bonds of fellowship and love. Let this also be a day to visit the temples of God: the mountains, the sea, the desert, the forests and all the wonders Elohim has created for you; that you might reflect upon your journey, strengthen your family and draw closer to Heaven. And let this be a day of study and of prayer, of reflection and contemplation, of covenants, repentance, and recommitment, and of all wholesome things of rest and renewal which uplift you and bring you closer to God and to your family.
5 You are a temple of God. Do not defile your temple inside or outside, but keep yourself clean and pure that the Celestine Light of Elohim may illuminate you.
6 You are an emissary of Elohim; strive to always be a worthy representative of the divine that others will see your good light and glorify God. Be humble in heart and rich in spirit. Do good deeds and be a peacemaker. Despise hypocrisy and a double tongue. Do not exalt yourself but give praise to others. Find the blessings in the trials that come upon you. Be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Be not joined with the haughty or arrogant, but befriend the righteous and the lowly. Judge not others and be tempered and balanced in your thoughts and actions. Do not raise your voice in unrighteous anger or instigate violence of word or deed. In all things, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
7 You shall not covet, or be avaricious, or steal, or be dishonest, or take any unfair advantage of others; nor gather unto you wealth in the world beyond your needs. Give your excess for the building up of the Kingdom of God and the Children of Light, and store up for yourself treasures in Heaven, not on earth.
8 You shall not commit fornication, or adultery, or in any way be a corrupter of youth.
9 Love your neighbors, and your brothers and sisters of light, even in all of their faults, even as Elohim loves you despite your weaknesses. Do generous and thoughtful things for your fellow travelers on the journey of life, as you would have them do for you. Do not bear false witness against them, or slander them, or gossip about them with others. If you have a grievance, go and speak in peace and kindness with them, not anger.
10 Honor your father and your mother as they have honored you with their time and sacrifice and nurturing. Love them all of their days, and when they are old, care for them as they have cared for you.
11 You shall not maim or murder; wherein, you shall not grievously injure or take the life of anyone, save it be in defense of mortal attack upon you or your family, or your home. Nor shall you kill to eat as food any animal, or bird, or creature of the sea that is of warm blood or nurtures its young, save it be in times of famine or pestilence, when food is not found in the garden and the storeroom is empty. Nor shall you join yourself to armies that bring war to other lands, but only to defend against a destroyer upon your land, and then only after every way of honorable peace has failed. And if it be that you must take a life for any of these causes, you shall make your heart right again with God with fasting and prayer, and have a spirit of love and peace before you enter again into the house of God.
12 Be a good and faithful steward of the Earth and with all of the creatures thereof. This beautiful world Elohim has given unto you that you might find all you have need of. Take the precious gift you have been given, protect it, magnify it, and pass on a greater gift to your posterity.
