Religion and Politics: It is a universal statement, ‘our constitution demands separation of church and state’. I doubt seriously if many people know what that means. I suspect that the framers of the constitution designed it so that no religion could take over our government and thereby become a Theocracy.
However, it is an unrealistic ideal to suggest or expect that religion would not play a major part in government—the simple reason being that all people are inculcated with some religious or non-religious beliefs. Obviously then those beliefs will influence law-makings, law-breaking and voting.
It has been said so many times that ‘this is a Christian nation’—I believe that Barack Obama said ‘it is not a Christian nation’. The truth of the matter is that Mr. O is correct. You may shriek in horror but that is factual. The reason is simply this—no two people know the same Jesus; so no two people know the same Christ (light of the world). Literally everyone professes from a different book, with a different set of rules and/or rituals and, therefore there is no common ground to claim. In summary we are a nation, and indeed a world, of individuals with literally no common ground at all. That all comes about because no two people know the same God—each speaks of God but his/her God is different from yours. Why? Because no one before me has defined the ‘essence’ of God. Absent an ‘essential definition’ of God, no two people can possibly know the same God. And certainly, if no two know the same God, it would be impossible for any two to know the same Christ or Holy Spirit.
Unwittingly then lawmakers and voters alike apply the pencil to the legal pad as well as the ballot based on their prejudicial views of God. Would it not be nice if we could have absolute unanimity of thought and understanding about God, Jesus the Christ (Light of the World) and the Holy Spirit (will of God)? Now, at last, we can and must. Finally someone has defined with irrefutable certainty ‘essence of God’, so that now everyone can know the exact same identical being.
In my book, Wilderness Cry, I do, in fact define the ‘essence of God’ with six simple words—God Is A Perfect Rational Being. Each of those words has very specific meaning and implications. Together they paint a picture which even the blind can clearly see. That definition leaves nothing to the imagination. Similarly, it abolishes forever all of the mythology, superstition and deceit associated with religions of all kinds. It shows that physical miracles are an impossibility; likewise it proves that any concepts of purgatory or hell are irrational. It shows that the Perfect Love of God pervades all—nothing can be rejected. Only by the prejudiced minds of men are we rejected. It shows how unloving (unjust) our legal system has been from the beginning.
In my Just released book, Peace in Spirituality, I take the concept of Gods Perfection to the ultimate and demonstrate clearly the only possible pathway to peace. Both books are must reads for your clear understanding of God and your relationship with him. Only then can each of you experience true inner tranquility (peace) which you may then impart to others. Until we experience this understanding, we are just ‘clanging cymbals’ creating a cacophony of unintelligible noise and universal disturbance (hostility)—and the drumbeats of war go on.
I am including a Press Release of Wilderness Cry as well as video trailers produced by covenant Books for both books. Please note the Press release describes WC as ‘a shining beacon of wisdom’—Amazon describes it as ‘A REAL EYE-OPENER’.
