FOREIGN-Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngFOREIGN is a word denoting strange, unfamiliar, from another country, etc. We use it in may differing circumstances to indicate or imply a person, country, idea, attitude or circumstance. Today I want to talk about a general quote from the Book Of Genesis . After God’s angel intervenes in Abram’s willing adventure to slaughter his son Isaac, as a reward, God promises him literally the entire world. Moreover, God is quoted as telling Abram that He will make his decedents more numerous than the grains of sand on all the earths beaches. That sounds good on the surface, but when diligent thought is applied, that idea not only seems foreign but ridiculous. Even today, the estimated number of Jews worldwide is a generous 15-16 million, and very likely represents the most ever at any given time. I haven’t taken the time to calculate it out, but others have. The result is an astonishing 1 billion grains in a cubic foot of sand or about 50 pounds. Now if we allow 20 years for turnover, and allow 8,000 years since God’s proclamation, we get 400 generations times 15 million equals 6 billion people. That’s a little less than 1/5th of a cubic yard of sand. Of course, according to the Noah flood story, there was a time when the Jewish race was diminished to about 10 people or so. It would have taken an awful lot of breeding to build the race up to the millions mark. Even as a child, those readings in the Old Testament seemed far-fetched and foreign to me; much more-so now. Consider this: our Milky Way Galaxy contains about 250 billion suns (stars). It is 100,000 light years across; meaning that light traveling 186,000 miles/second requires 100,000 years to traverse it. Our nearest neighbor galaxy, Andromeda, is estimated to contain 1 trillion stars. The Hubble telescope has shown that our universe contains 2 trillion galaxies. Little wonder that light which has been traveling 13.7 billion years is just now reaching our earth. So, those numbers are so large as to be totally foreign and incomprehensible to the human mind. Now back to the Old Testament story; there are millions of preachers and lay people alike who “swear on a stack of bibles” that every word of the Bible is true and inerrant. One does not have to have the genius of Einstein to understand the fallaciousness of such proclamations. No wonder religion has been “deathly afraid” of mathematics and science. Science is totally foreign to the bible and biblical concepts of God. There is, however, a realistic, scientific, and philosophically sound concept of God (and the Supreme Being of all other world religions). The Jews in particular developed a minuscule, humanistic concept of God; they could control and bargain with Him. Note further that God was notated as a male figure (Father). That’s reasonable, because throughout history, women were considered just slightly better than a dog. Now, lets get down to reality. What we have is a universe(s) that is totally incomprehensible, that is made of identically the same perfect quanta (particles of energy), that is absolutely perfect in form and function. It exhibits perfect rationality in all aspects. So if we are to accept a concept of God (Supreme Being) that created, controls and maintains all of this, we must assign that Being’s “essence” as A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. At the same time, we recognize that everything in the universe is evil by virtue of its selfishness. Everything is in motion and has “needs”. God made it that way so it could function. When needs cease, so will motion. When motion ceases, so will time; only Eternity remains.  God being Perfect is incapable of change; therefore It exists in Eternity. When we die and cease changing, so will we exist with God in Eternity. These ideas may seem, foreign to you at first glance. However, I believe with a little “open minded” consideration, you may find them not foreign at all. Enter Jesus; I believe without doubt that Jesus understood the concept of universal evil (selfishness). He saw Himself as a mirror image of God and Their Love relationship (God’s Will, the Holy Spirit). He knew the “price had to be paid” to ameliorate all the evil in the universe. He did so willingly but with great trepidation (Jesus was human). I develop this complete philosophy in my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry. Religion and ideologies don’t want to accept any of these concepts because by doing so, they would lose all power, money and influence. However, as the only way to PEACE, I have called for recognition of the World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality. This idea accepts the idea that as children of God, we each carry Its Brand, The Holy Spirit within us. As such, we are all brothers and sisters. We must cease fighting. No longer must we be foreigners to each other. WE all are united by the Holy Spirit (Love Of God).  Amazon, Kindle, ET AL.  All comments welcomed. handg@comcast.net
