My 10 Commandments For God

My 10 Commandments for God

Phil Miglioratti * Reimagine.Network


Context: I firmly believe in the God of Genesis 1:1 and the original 10 Commandments. I do not believe the Creator necessitates ten suggestions from me or anyone else. I do not believe a list like this provides God with new ideas. My sole (and soul) purpose is to invite readers, especiall those who are skeptical about God, to consdier these assertions as a way to reimagine God... and faith. 

  1. I want to believe in the God of all gods, the God who created the gods, if they exist. And even if there’s a God who created the God who created the Earth, that’s the God I want to believe in. The Uncreated One. The True Self. The One Way-The Only Truth-The Life Source God.
  2. I want to believe that God is real; not vapor, not chemistry nor technology, and certainly not mythology. This God would be the way to authentic truth about real life.
  3. I want to believe this God expresses omnipresence (True Self is not limited to a body in form or function), omniscience (True Self knows all  that needs knowing) and omnipotence (True Self is almighty), each from a source of pure, holy (perfect) True Love.
  4. I want to believe God makes every decision on the basis of love; a quality of love that demonstrates the beauty of the creation ("the land and the sky" of Genesis1:1) and who’s love is the guiding purpose and principle for all life; the model for all human interactions. This God cannot not love, even when destroying evil.
  5. I want to believe in a God, who is just in character and action. True Self is righteous in motivation and methods and means. This God, rightly so, abhors evil as the cancer of the spirtual life of humans.
  6. I want to believe God reveals the True Self in the majesty and beauty of every created thing and person.
  7. I want to believe in a God who is knowable, wants to be known, and initiates communication with every created being. People have an all access pass to communicate with True Self through meditation and contemplation, praise and prayer, and through fulfilling their unique purpose.
  8. I want to believe in a God who is our advocate, not an accuser, manipulator or deceiver. A rescuer who is also a redeemer, releasing us from all dis-ease, evil, and everything death-producing.
  9. I want to believe in a God, who is a judge; a judge of all that is evil. A God who will defeat evil and one day destroy it forever. This God will also offer people the spiritual surgery necessary, so that they do not die with that evil, soul-cancer disease.
  10. I want to believe in the almighty God people have no need to fear because the True Self is loving, forgiving, a source of true empowerment, and in whose presence is real peace. The True Self is the God all humans (and even creative things nonhuman) long for. If God has a name, that is The Name I will believe in, which I will pray in, and I will seek to bless and love and serve others.


If you can, read this list and agree with each of these “commandments” you are close to faith n the God I find in the Bible.


You are not searching for a religion. You are seeking, even yearning for, a relationship with the One walks with us along the way of truth that breathes life into our bodies-souls-and-spirits.

No matter what adjective you used to describe yourself (religious, political, philosophical; theist or atheist), this ancient wisdom may be a good place to (re)start:

You must trust the Lord
    and not your own judgment.

Always let him lead you,
and he will clear the road
    for you to follow.

Don't ever think that you
    are wise enough,
but respect the Lord
    and stay away from evil.

Proverbs 3:5-7

Jesus was right when he told us to "Seek God first ... live righteously ... and God will give you everything you need" (Matthew 6:33).

God is real and has revealed True Self -  "Without faith no one can please God. Anyone who comes to God (wanting truth, hope, peace, love, forgiveness, eternal life) must believe that God is real and that he rewards those who truly want to find him." (Hebrews 11:6) - This God I want to believe in wants to be found . . .
