If you want to officiate weddings, baptisms, funerals or if you help others or intend to, using massage, herbs or any of the metaphysical or para-psychological modalities, (which include e.s.p.; tarot, Reiki, hypnotherapy etc.). And if you follow any Monotheism or Polytheism belief which include Wicca and Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist or Christian belief – for your protection read this.

The AMA is constantly trying to get more and more States, as has Florida, to change their laws to read: ‘You cannot practice healing or health care without a license.’ We have many Ministers in Florida even practicing Reiki without problems. We have Ministers in the US, Canada, England, France, Hong Kong, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Denmark, Saudi Arabia, Cyprus, Switzerland and the U.K.

The purpose of most ‘religions’, (belief systems) is to grow in membership. Ours is simply to state what it is. Most ‘Churches’ are buildings, ours is not. There are Christians, Jews, Muslims, Wicca and Hindus who already have acknowledged their membership in TUL . We embrace all . Donald A. Rosenthal, ND.; PhD. Executive Director of the American Alternative Medical Association and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners; Dr. Marijah McCain of the Herbal Healer Academy; Dr. Allison Dahlhaus of the Reiki Blessings Academy; and Dr. Gale Kurtz President of the Traditional School of Sacred Arts have acknowledged their membership in and are legally ordained as ministers in TUL. Some of your closest friends or neighbors may have acknowledged their membership as well. By becoming an ordained minister in TUL, your 1st Amendment rights to preach and educate about the benefits of whatever modalities you believe in, are protected. If you are ordained in a different church and its purpose is not for the promotion of healing through natural means (the Creator’s), you may be well advised to transfer your ordination. Remember, by becoming a legally, ordained minister, you separate yourself from State laws regarding religious beliefs and come under the 1st. Amendment.

It was not until well after 250 AD that the business of training Priest and Ministers began. Prior to that, people followed the Spiritual guidance from within – we still uphold that method! Now is the time to make this move. You cannot become a minister to circumvent the law. But you can become a minister to practice your religious beliefs.

To acknowledge your membership in TUL, you become a Deacon,

To protect yourself in your service to others, you become Ordained and use the title Reverend, You also will be able to make additional income by officiating weddings, baptisms and funerals. We have some ministers who simply specialize in weddings. Basic ceremonies are well covered in a very inexpensive book called, The Broadman Minister’s Manual by Franklin M. Segler.

To use Dr. before your name or DD after your name, you become a Doctorate in Divinity.

Our Mission

Our mission, set forth on January 8th 1970 is to create & function according to scriptural authority in the physical/carnal (unspiritual) world a church. To be known as The Universal Light Church which will be spiritual, (not Spiritualist). It will be without walls and the only one of its kind we believe to truly exist. This church and its members shall be free to believe the truth within themselves and to function accordingly under the protection of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. We, and hopefully you agree, have the basis of all our beliefs, Psalm 118.8 which is in the exact middle of the entire ‘Holy Bible’. We believe everyone and everything in the physical world is a member of this church, even though most do not acknowledge it, others acknowledge and become a Deacon and yet others become Ministers in order to minister to others in a modality or modalities which are their Creator’s -given talents . This church believes in both the Preterist and the Futurist philosophies. We do not conform to the ways of this world. And most importantly, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” We are one in the Spirit.

We believe that the Creator gave everyone free will and to establish any rules, regulations and/or dogma is to deny free will! So we set forth the declaration to follow what you truly believe, (religion), in your heart to be true, is what you should do in order to live to the best of your ability. The Creator gave us guides and directions through the Scriptures in order to find the truth within our self. We believe in individual spirituality rather than religious dogma. We believe in the spirit invested in each and every human being to follow “The Still Small Voice” in their heart. We believe in the Creative power to heal through all forms of natural modalities. We are Spiritual beings which have a mind, emotions and physical body. The mind is not us and is dualistic, both Carnal and Spiritual. Carnal or unnatural, the good is for self and Spiritual or natural, the good is for others. While we do not disbelieve in the medical/drug modality, except for emergencies we believe that other modalities might be a better first choice. All things, as all seasons, have their time and place. In Truth, all modalities are in fact, counsel. Our ministers will give counsel coming from the Spiritual by way of natural (or natures) ways, such as, intuition, healing hands, herbs, astrology, numerology, graphology, tarot cards, palmistry, and any number of other modalities known to be in the Metaphysical and/or Para psychological realms. We believe all things begin in the spirit then to the mind where a decision is made between carnal and spiritual, then to the emotions which then affect the physical. There are numerous books on the market suggesting the emotions cause disease. But the study of cause and effect leads us to the mind which stimulate the emotions. The stronger the spirit the more apt the mind will choose the spiritual mind rather than the carnal and better health should prevail. Even Hippocrates, is known as the “Father of Medicine” was quoted saying … “A physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” When there is a lack of harmony, peace, lack of ease in the entity it is called a dis-ease. Should this dis-ease continue for any length of time it will out picture in the physical form in what is called a disease. This is the reason that most modern doctors will admit that the best thing they can do in most cases ….. is to put the body in a position to heal itself.

More Scriptural Support

From the New Testament book of Revelation Chapter 22: 1-3 (New King James Version)

“And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its streets, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore 12 fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The LEAVES of the tree were FOR the HEALING of the nations…. and his servants shall serve him.”
In verse 1 it clearly shows that the river of life, which symbolizes the healing power of God, proceeds from the throne of God and of the Lamb. The throne of God symbolizes the authority of God, and the throne of the Lamb symbolizes the authority of the church. The source of natural healing is the creative power of God, and the church shares the authority in dispensing and to mankind.
In verse 3 the writer says: through the help of natural healing which comes from the benefits of the tree of life, the curse of sickness would be lifted and his servants shall serve him”. We believe this means that God wants us to serve him by making natural methods of healing available to people through the gifts He has given to each one of us. As the apostle Paul states in 1 Corinthians 12: 5-6: There are diversities of ministries, but the same God. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

From the Old Testament the book of Ezekiel 46: 1-12

Our scriptural authority for believing that natural healing and natural medicine is in the domain and under the authority of the church and not in the domain and under the authority of any secular corporate or human government authority is found in our dynamic interpretation of Ezekiel 1-12. Some have called this old method of interpretation the Preterist School of prophetic interpretation.
In verses 8-9 the writer speaks of the same river and clearly shows that the river gives healing in life wherever it goes. This river proceeds from the temple of God which clearly symbolizes the healing power proceeds from the church of God and isn’t restrained by any human corporate or human governmental authority. Natural healing proceeds from the freedom of God and the church which represents Him.
In verse 12 it says, “Along the bank of the river on this sign in that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fall. They will bear fruit every month because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their LEAVES FOR MEDICINE.”

Scripture uses the words heal, healing, and medicine!

Our Background

Finding that the basic beliefs of most religions were thesame and only the dogma of mankind that caused the differences, the Universal Light Church was founded. TUL set out to establish a simple church that would represent as closely as possible what was believed to exist in spirit. (Spirit or energy, is what most followers of religion referred to as God/Allah, Alpha and Omega, I Am That I Am; spiritualist as the Light, Creator, Primal Energy, The Higher Power, or as the physicist referred to it has “the unified field”.) Since the majority of its members were more familiar with the Bible was used for scriptural authority. Also interesting reading is the Torah, the Qur’an and the Dhammapada.

Around 1974 the TUL began The Universal Light Inc., it was incorporated as a non-denominational, non-dogmatic, parapsychological and metaphysical church without walls. It is a 501(c)3 not -for- profit
Corporation. It is has become a legally recognized church with ministers internationally. Often ministers continued to practice their own very dogmatic religion. TUL refers to people whose religious beliefs cause them to put their efforts and energy toward the positive and good of others, “LIGHT WORKERS” and we can and do ordain them they have all legal rights and privileges of any priest, minister or rabbi.

As we work to build the New Paradigm, TUL found a new responsibility; the protection of light workers, since they use various metaphysical and parapsychological methods and tools which may not be understood by the general population. Many Light Workers have learned their art through inspiration, meditation, mentors, angels and other so-called “unorthodox” or “alternative” means. Today in fact, we are seeing many in the traditional healing fields such as medicine blend with those of the metaphysicians and parapsychologist. Remember it was “The Father of Medicine” who was quoted saying, “The physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” TUL also certifies Light Workers in ministries of their choosing. Any TUL minister can serve in multiple ministries and be certified in such. If you feel the need of a course or someone to tell you what you should believe, you are not yet ready to be a minister of The Universal Light. TUL also confers an accredited Doctorate in Divinity to those who qualify. It updates its records on each of its ministers annually in order to validate that they are still active with in the church. Update cost is only $25 if paid by October 1st. each year. Most States require a licensed minister to maintain an active ministry in the church it was ordained. Any minister of TUL can be validated from anywhere by phone. The Constitution protects an ordained minister regardless of the state in which they set up their ministry. However to officiate a wedding the laws of each state must be complied with. (A TUL minister can call its headquarters in Cincinnati any time to find their States laws regarding this.)

Just imagine for a moment that if everything that exists from people, trees to stars and planets were melted down into one big spot and nothing else existed including space. This would be in what we call TUL. It is the bases of all that is, in and around everything. Nothing exist without. It would be like “The Force” in Star Wars. Now most believe this created all things. Physicists tell us that everything comes from this unified field in the form of waves, these ways turn in the energy and the energy turns into matter. This could be the FORM of creating. Now some say that it banged (exploded) everything into existence. And some say that it just evolved into the different things. Now some say everything came from intelligent design, so they can call this TUL, intelligence. Do you see where I am going with this? Just indulge me for a moment and let’s change the name TUL to God or Allah or any one of a hundred different names. I think no matter how you want to believe things came about, it’s simply proves there IS some thing, (not necessarily matter or anti-matter — possibly what we call spiritual) which is God/Allah.
