Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Take pride in what you do in your day, take heed of those that want to test you, and be able to tell the lies from truth. For these are things that dwell around every corner in everyday.

I will be going through some practices of the Christian rite (communion, standards, Prayers, etc.) just for those that do not know or who are curious.

I'm curious how you view the Force through Christian eyes. I still haven't quite settled on how I view it. Haven't made it to that point...mostly because I haven't really meditated on it like I should :S

"...unattachment means enjoying life without attachments. We can party on weekends, but work when it's time to work. We can enjoy material things, but we should not be its slave. We should control our emotions instead of letting our emotions control us. We should learn to enjoy life and its different forms of expression without being attached to them."

I want to consider the idea of the trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Do you all think that these are different manifestations of the Force? I do. They all have different purposes, but they are all the Force. What is all of your opinions

The way I (myself, not sure how others of the same rite feel) feel how it works is that Christians believe in SINGLE entity, Deity, all knowing and all seeing. with the power to have an unseen "energy" that works through all of us that is located at our "Heart" (Or Center of Being) and we all have a calling and that the good are rewarded and the evil, punished. However, within taking and completing the initiates program I have noticed that in reality the "Energy" that is in us all is the physical manifestation of the Force and through it we all have individual traits and talents that are unique, but in a way the same. We choose how to best channel the Force to help us with our tasks everyday, to keep us moving, solving problems, etc. This is the minimalistic view of how I view it, though my wording my confuse and if it has I would be happy to elaborate Hopefully I answered questions.

Another very good question. Seeing as the Christian Rite mainly Believes that God sent his only begotten son to Earth to save us all from Sin so that we may never perish, but have eternal life. Now when Jesus (The Son) was crucified, instead of being sent to his all knowing father (God) he was sent to Hell with the sins of all mankind on his back. Now after three days of fighting against the darkness he supposedly retured with the help of the Holy Spirit (Energy, or Force in us all) to teach his disiples(can't spell) that now all mankind can now redeem and repent of their sins by taking up the message of God and believing in him, which in turn is the "Holy Spirit" working through us to do good and spread the word. But in essence the Force in Christian community would actually be the "Holy Spirit" God, and his son Jesus are entities that are forged to create a story so that we may find solace in that we all become "one" at the end of our PHYSICAL journey.


So at the end no they are not seperate, But instead a "Story" of one Being throwing energy across the universe

I have been trying to understand my own feelings about this. I am leaning to this position:

We are all collectively GOD, the universal consciousness. His son was another "Buddha" enlightened being. The Holy Spirit is the Force energy that binds all living thing together.

But I Am Unbroken...
For The Force is always with me, I am a Jedi."

Well there are numerous stories of this in almost every religion, the "Buddah" YOu also speak of could be enterpitied as the "Hero, or Prophet" in a sense the same thing.
