Love God, Love People - learn how & practice
Godwor Intro, Lesson 1 (of 3)

Introducing Godwor, which means: "God, WithOut Religion."
We are a group of people who are curious about Jesus and want many of his characteristics, but don't necessarily want to be associated with modern Christianity or its churches or its politics. Some of us are Christians already, others are not. But we all are interested in seeing Jesus as he was on earth ... to learn his wisdom, his strength, and his compassion.
This is the first lesson of three that are designed to introduce the concept, and start you on a journey that will teach you and show you how to be a wiser, stronger and more compassionate person - a person who makes a real difference in the world.
Start here, and proceed slowly through these first lessons, and you'll get the general idea.Godwor Intro, Lesson 2 (of3)

In this second lesson, we review the 'homework' from the previous lesson and reinforce one part of it as an assignment for next time.
It's all about changing the way we see the world, and particularly the people in it. We are conditioned by our culture, nation, community, family and churches to see people a certain way. In your life there are family members, friends and enemies. There are mean people, bullies, bosses and politicians. Doctors, customers and neighbors. We see them this way. But what if you knew them as their mothers knew them? Maybe you'd know why the bully is hateful - and maybe knowing why he's that way would help you to reform him. Maybe you'd understand why horrible people are horrible, and that not all good people are as good as you thought. If we learn to look at people differently, with a view to help them, educate them, free them and strengthen them, we will not only help them - but we'll also be helping ourselves.
These are the podcasts for the team called Godwor. Godwor stands for: "God WithOut Religion," and we're a team of people learning how to make this world a better place by focusing more on Jesus - without the baggage of modern religious groups.
Some friends of mine and I have grown tired of the bad reputation of modern Christianity, but we still love God and believe Jesus really is His son. So - we've formed our own "team" - to help one another learn, grow stronger and wiser, more loving and compassionate and to be better human beings - by concentrating on the study and imititation of Jesus. We want to see life as a challenge ... and helping the world almost as if it's a competitive sport. We want to get "good" at being good. We want to get stronger, wiser and develop more endurance - like an athlete who competes in the Olympics of philanthropy & Theophily. You should join us - be a competitive "lover." (no, not in a sexual way - you perv!)
