1. That for the human species to survive, humans must unite and develop a unified respect for all species.

2. That all faiths and religions must join forces with the non-religious to commit to a few unalterable moral principles and guidelines for the conduct of their lives.

3. That these principles are based upon an expanded understanding of the golden rule which encompasses all life in the universe, or all creation.

4. That the golden rule of the new millennium must be a part of every action and decision made in any capacity, whether in business or in personal endeavors.

5. That there are noble principles in all of the world religions both great and small and that these shared principles can form a bond of unity to create a "peaceable kingdom" for all of the earth's inhabitants.

6. That humans recognize that the concepts of "eden," "Shangri-la," and other ideals of paradise on earth have validity based upon fecund ecosystems which supported an abundance of and diversity of life before being destroyed by overpopulation and over-exploitation by humans.

7. That we humans reside on "Planet Eden" and that the "Forbidden Fruit" of the tree of knowledge was the capacity of humans to develop technologies which allowed the destruction of Eden.

8. That we are destroying the isolated remnants of Eden at a rate which will ultimately destroy the human species if left to the devices of insensitivity and greed.

9. That God's gift of dominance over other creatures was and is not a license to exploit and destroy; it is instead the capacity that our intellectual gifts allow us to dominate the earth and that we must direct that capacity toward stewardship and protection of all life forms.

10. That God's directive to "be fruitful and multiply" was not a directive to overpopulate Planet Eden to the detriment of the quality of life of all life forms including humans; that we have been fruitful and over-multiplied and now it is time to reach an equilibrium with our fellow travelers on Planet Eden.

11. That God's directive to Noah to save every species is perhaps the most important directive in the Judeo-Christian tradition and the one which especially must not be ignored today.

12. That greed, hypocrisy, cruelty, gene-o-cide and other human frailties must be replaced with generosity, honesty, kindness and stewardship or we and future generations are doomed to scramble for survival on a dying planet which will become a living hell.

The Russell Ministries are a confederation of churches, individuals, religions, or faiths which are willing to commit to the protection and preservation of God's creation and which commits to adopting the expanded Golden Rule of the New Millennium.

No one has to abandon their principles, faith or church membership. Anyone can join as long as they commit their lives to the one governing moral principle of protecting Planet Eden through application of the Golden Rule.

Christians, Jews, Hindus, Moslems, Buddhists, Animists, Agnostics, and even Atheists are invited to join.

The primary means of communication will be the world wide web or internet which allows persons in any part of the world to participate in working toward our common goals.

Respect for individual freedom of expression and freedom of choice is paramount as each human must find his or her own meaning of God or universal force representing God.

Each person must be free to choose their own code of ethics as long as the central guiding principle of Russell Ministries is followed.

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, should be considered a governing principle of the new Golden Rule and should be applied to the treatment of all creation to the extent allowed by the laws of nature.

If you would like to help in our mission of bringing peace to the world, please join us by becoming a member.

If you would like to help our mission financially, we would be most appreciative. Even one cent or a "Widow's Mite" if united with other pennies, nickels, or dimes will help further our mission and spread the word throughout the world.

1. LOVE: We should attempt to not only "love thy neighbor" but love all creation as the work of God.

2. GENEROSITY: We should, when blessed with more than our basic requirements for a quality standard of life, use our surplus resources including time to restore Planet Eden, bring comfort to the sick and dying, form common bonds with others, help the helpless and less fortunate, and continue the work of Noah by protecting the earth.

3. KINDNESS: We should strive to be kind to all creatures great and small.

4. PEACE: We should work toward achieving common goals through the application of love, generosity, and kindness to establish world peace

1. GREED: Greed is perhaps the most dangerous sin. Greed is causing the plunder of Planet Eden, the exploitation of God's creation and the unsustainable conversion of the Earth's resources into commodities.

2. IGNORANCE: Ignorance allows unknowing people to be manipulated by Greed. Ignorance allows millions of unwanted conceptions to occur resulting in abortions, neglect of children, hunger, and countless unnecessary births resulting in unnecessary suffering. Ignorance allows the uneducated to destroy the thousands of species of life without even realizing the harm they are doing to the planet and the quality of life for future generations of humans and other species.

3. CRUELTY: Cruelty and lack of empathy allows millions of the earth's citizens which includes all species of life to be exploited, tortured, maimed, killed, and enslaved unnecessarily. Cruelty is the very antithesis of the Golden Rule.

4. HYPOCRISY: Hypocrisy is a dangerous form of moral corruption resulting in, for example, Christians clamoring for executions and Christians carrying out executions, in direct contradiction of the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Jesus.
