                 One Basic Operating Principle.

            (From ADORE, A Divine Operating REligion)
             Copyright (C) 1985 by Homer Wilson Smith

     ADORE has one basic operating principle.

     It is all encompassing and admits to no exceptions.

     Nor does it admit to any competitors.  There can not be
more than one basic operating principle.  There may be other ways
of saying the same thing, but the underlying truth is ONE truth,
regardless of how it is said in what age or what language.

     It can be wrong, but either it is wrong or it is right.

     The only way to determine which way it is is to apply it
and see if it works.  Does it open your doors?  Can you vanish your
unwanted conditions?  Can you make more if you should so want?

     If you don't operate it, you cant judge if it works or not.

     To say that ADORE does not work, is to say this one operating
principle does not work.  To say you are looking for a better way,
is to say that there is some other operating principle closer
to the truth or more workable than this one, which there may be.

     Any exception that people take to ADORE, any disagreement they
have with ADORE, any complaint they have with ADORE can only be
with this one single solitary operating principle.

     Of course there will be those who will try to overwhelm you and
create unwanted conditions for you by the barrel full, in order to prove to you
that you have failed and that your operating principle does not work.

     They will do this regardless of what operating principle you chose.

     However if your operating principle does work, you should be able
to apply it to THEM as just one more unwanted condition.  Perhaps
this is the final test of any basic operating principle underlying
Eternal Omni Sovereignty.

     In the end, when the far future is here and those of us who
are going to make it to our Sovereignty and Freedom have done so,
we will look back on all the truths and operating principles we
have tried and thrown away.  We will also look upon the ones we
saw fit to carve in stone so that others might not throw them away
because they worked.

    I believe that among those that are still revered will be this
one present operating principle of ADORE.

     The WAY IN is the WAY OUT.

     Thus if you deny ADORE or its usefullness to your lives,
you are saying there is another WAY OUT besides the WAY IN.

     Maybe there is a back door to your prison, but the front
door by which you entered it still there.

     Maybe there is another way out, but the way in will be
there for Eternity in this and all future games that you enter.

     It can be no other way.

     You can not be IN a game without ENTERING a game.

     To deny this is to deny full responsibility for your condition.

     The ENTRANCE is always there.

     People who look for EXITS have lost sight of the ENTRANCE.

     Responsibility is a big thing.
