Christmas-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngWhat does Christmas mean to you and why? I would vouch to say that for anyone even remotely indoctrinated in ‘Christianity’ of any type, it means a myth. And you, understandably shriek in horror at such blasphemy. And I say, “not so fast”. My intention is not to offend anyone—rather it is to plead to your sense of understanding.

Jesus was a real person just like you and I. The only real difference was that he was a ‘super-genius’. Without benefit of any basic scientific knowledge, Jesus was able to deduce the nature of God and his universe. Jesus was able to understand that he and everything in existence were mirror images of their creator—otherwise they could not be. He could see the universal condition of ‘selfishness’ in all things. He clearly understood that selfishness was an intrinsic necessity for existence and function—without selfishness, there would be no need–if there were no need, there would be no change—with no change, there would be no time—the universe would be functionless and frozen in ‘eternity’.

IMG_0082So ,why did we have a universe in the first place? I’m certain Jesus pondered that question incessantly—when he discovered the answer, he was terrified. God, his father, your father, my father, must show and actually be ‘perfect love’. What greater ‘love object’ could the Father have than an entire universe of ‘evil’ which he, himself created. Why, then, was Jesus terrified? Because he realized that since he was the only likeness of God to know and understand that principle, he was the one who had to ‘pay the price’—and gloriously he did. God, in the likeness of Jesus, accepted all of the evil in the universe, in the grandest display of love possible—he gave his own life in atonement.

Now lets back up to the birth of Jesus. Just last Sunday’s first Old Testament reading, we hear a prophet (I think Isaiah ) predict that ‘a virgin shall conceive’. Where he came up with that ridiculous idea would be interesting to know—I strongly suspect it was added in retrospect to support the superstitious ideas of the astrology mentality. Then three days later, we have the prediction come true.

If you have read my book, Wilderness Cry, you will know that I am the first person ever to define the essence  of God. I did so with six simple words– God is a perfect rational being. That perfection is translated into everything in existence—everything follows that perfect order. Therefore, physical miracles are an absolute impossibility. In order for a physical miracle to occur, God would need to change his nature—since God is perfect, change is an impossibility.

So why do we have the Nativity story as told in Luke’s gospel? I suspect Luke had to paint a ‘spectacular’ picture to satisfy his own superstitious and mythological mind. Professor Garry Wills, in his book, What Paul Meant, shows clearly that Luke is a veritable liar—every important aspect of Acts, which is meant to be a description of what Paul did and said, is at complete odds with what Paul, himself, wrote. Luke seems to have an uncanny penchant for fabricating tales to create a church the way he wants it.

IMG_1065Now, back to the ‘horror story’. From a sound and irrefutable, scientific and philosophical standpoint, physical miracles are an absolute impossibility. Therefore the following pertains: (1) Jesus was/is real: (2)he was born of natural parents: (3) of  necessity, he was a super-genius to see and recognize the nature of God and his creation: (4) once he concluded that he must die so the Father could be/exhibit his perfect love, he wanted desperately to tell the world the good news (gospel). So he set about his public ministry, working on the periphery attempting to educate twelve illiterates—it seems very doubtful to me that he succeeded: (5) in spite of his working and preaching in relative obscurity, his heretical teachings reached the ears of the Jewish authorities—he knew his days were numbered:(6) he went straight to the source—he made an onslaught on the temple—he turned over the moneychangers tables and called the some pretty nasty names while doing it: He then ate his last meal with his apostles, and while eating, he made one final desperate attempt to pierce their thick, prejudiced skulls—he told the that he and the Father are one just as they and the Father are one—he told them that the bread and wine they consumed were one with the Father, as was all of creation—it seems that most if not all of the didn’t understand–we have no certain way of knowing. Much of what was written was written by biased, superstitious people. Furthermore those writings have been altered extensively by other biased and superstitious people. (7) I believe without doubt that the ‘Jesus” story is basically true—its parameters are false.

It is noteworthy that the contemplative religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, basically can be summed up in the concept of trying to understand and define their Supreme Being—for that they are to be commended. The Abrahamic religions, on the other hand, are about appeasement.

For those of you who have not read Wilderness Cry and Peace In Spirituality, I strongly urge you to do so. You will garner a clear understanding of your Perfect God and your relationship with him—all  mystery and innuendo will be removed—you will then be able to have internal peace which will then assist you in being at true peace with your neighbor.

I am including press releases for both books as well a short video trailer for each.

Baptism With the Holy Spirit-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngAs suspected, yesterdays post about the history  of baptism, created  quite a   stir about the origin of baptism and its meaning. There are certain groups of Christians who cannot allow themselves that luxury of historical perspective. However, the  pagan origin of Baptism is undeniable. The ‘rub’ came when the Catholic Church declared Baptism a Sacrament, and  an essential for admission into heaven. That instantly created another loophole which had to be closed—that being  state  of limbo for the  un-baptized.

I will expose my ignorance here and declare that I do not know exactly  how the Fundamentalists  Christians came  to recognize  Baptism as a requirement for salvation. They don’t recognize Sacraments—some accept a few–Episcopalians accept them all—just don’t recognize the Pope. Suffice it to say, the pagan ritual of baptism was adopted by the Jews and  was eventually converted to a rite of ‘penitential cleansing’ by making John’s baptism as salvational.

IMG_0082So it is evident, the responsibility for Christian baptism lay clearly at the feet of Jesus. However Jesus said, ‘John gave you baptism with water, but I will Baptize you with the Holy Spirit’. Obviously a paradox exist here. Why did God’s voice speak from the  heavens and say , ‘This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased . Listen to him’. Who was there to listen and hear? Jesus had not yet chosen his apostles. So who heard that it might be recorded later? I suspect no one.  I believe it was absolutely a ‘trumped up’ idea inserted into Bible centuries later to satisfy the figment of someone’s imagination. If the Jews had heard it, they would have been compelled to, obey—direct orders from God?—who would dare ignore?

No, rather I think Jesus spoke truly about the Holy Spirit. He tried desperately for three years to educate his ‘thick- headed apostles and others—we have absolutely no way of knowing whether or not he was successful—so corrupted is the Bible. Jesus saw plainly that the Spirit of God (the life giving principle of all,  God’s love of all, God’s acceptance of all,  God’s Holy Will) resided in all. God did not reside  ‘over there’ and his creation reside ‘over here’—they were one an the same. Jesus told his apostles, ‘The Kingdom Of God is spread out all over the earth around you and you don’t see it’.

IMG_1065If we are ever to have peace on this earth, each of us must come out of our ‘badger like’ cocoons, humbly accept that the Spirit of God is in us all, and indeed in all of creation. Not one of us is worthy of God’s Kingdom—it is by his singular acceptance that he has  made us, and every grain of sand in the universe worthy.  With that understanding, we could finally have peace—not until.

My little book, Peace in Spirituality spells it out precisely. You must first read and understand Wilderness Cry before  you can understand  Peace in Spirituality.

For you locals, I will be signing copies of both books at The Good News Shoppe in Mayfield this coming Friday, Jan. 10, 11:00 AM-2:00 PM. Both books are readily available on line both hard-copy and e-books—of course, always available directly from me. Don’t miss out.

JUSTICE-Wilderness Cry-Hilary L. Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPERFECT (7)–Continuing our discussion about God’s Perfection, I want to address a concept that  is at the very root of the misconception and confusion exhibited by the Abrahamic religions, and that concept is justice. You will recall that early on in their history, the Israelites developed a philosophy of justice–an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Consequently, as they recognized a singular God, they fashioned that god after their own  image and demeanor—their God was human-like in appearance; he was capable of loving you, but more importantly, he was vengeful and demanded retribution for any breach of his laws (justice). In their eyes, that retribution must be in the form of sacrifice, which must be of nature and quantity equal to the breech (crime)—an eye for an eye, etc. Then and only then could their God be appeased. However, not every ‘Tom, Dick, and Harry could offer that  sacrifice. Moreover, that sacrificial offering must not only be of sufficient quantity; it must be of  perfect quality—enter the High Priest.

Since the offering must be of sufficient quantity and of perfect quality, only the High Pries was considered capable of not only offering the sacrifice but providing the perfect specimens—enter the money changers. The poor peasants were obligated to pay the High Priest an extortionist’s price for his perfect offering made in their behest—the High Priest got richer; the peasants got poorer. Does anyone besides me see a corollary to what goes down in some religious circles today?

Now lets examine the real God–-the God of Perfect Love. Perfect love you will recall is ‘acceptance without conditions’. With that understanding, there is ‘no room’ for justice in God’s world. Like probably most of you, I am accustomed to hearing ad nauseum about our ‘eternal just God’. Consider this, if God were Perfect Justice, no human to ever live could possibly be saved. But no, God is not ‘just’ at all; he is all love—enter Jesus.

IMG_1065I am convinced that Jesus was the most brilliant human to ever live. In spite of being illiterate, He recognized many important clues about God. He saw that everything in this universe was evil by virtue of its  selfishness.  Without any scientific knowledge at all, to say nothing of ‘particle physics’, Jesus reasoned that the  spirit of God was in everything. Yet everything was made perfect, and maintained perfect by a Perfect God.

God made an entire universe(s) of evil—it had to be that way in order to function. Much more importantly, it had to be that way for a much, much greater cause—God must  show (be)  Perfect Love.   Jesus recognized that his spirit (soul) and the spirit of everything in existence were mirroring their creator. Knowing that God’s perfect love must be displayed through acceptance of  an entire universe of evil which God, himself created placed Jesus in a very ‘uncomfortable’ position—he, himself must be the sacrificial lamb—what a terrifying thought.

Jesus knew that the ‘good news-gospel’ must be spread all over the world. Time was short—death by crucifixion was reserved for all acts of treason and his such death was certain; he was teaching hearsay which was considered treason—but, he had no choice. He did the best he could—he surrounded himself with twelve illiterates and attempted to inculcate them with his ‘new’ philosophy about God—maybe in eternity we’ll learn if he succeeded—we certainly cannot tell from the corrupted and misinterpreted literature we have now. Nonetheless, he kept on the fringes of society trying not to awaken the ire of the authorities. After three years or so, and seeing the authorities closing in, he made a bee-line for the temple, overturned the money changers tables and called them hypocrites, as indeed they were. The rest is history.

By that ‘singular act’, God’s justice was rendered unto himself— he became, as he always had been, Perfect Love.  That one act of humility by Jesus exonerated us and all creation from any possibility of ‘retribution’ by an all Perfect, all Loving God. Paul’s letters are repleat with that teaching.

Do you think, as I do, that our ‘legal system’ needs attention?

Again, if you would like complete elucidation of these and literally all considerations of our relationship with God, Please read my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality.

PERFECT-Wilderness Cry-Hilary L. Hunt M.D.

r_P70491TA200411_cr_22441_FullPERFECT-(6) in this installment we will discuss God’s Perfect Love which may be defined as acceptance without conditions. If God’s love required conditions, it would not be perfect—it would be un-filled; an impossibility in the realm of perfection. The entire universe(s) is/are a mirror image of their Generator—that Supreme Being we call Allah, Yahweh. Buddha, God, Zeus, Brahma, etc. So God , himself is intrinsically  selfish for a very specific reason—he wants, desires, chooses,  loves  everything for himself. In order to demonstrate and be perfect love, he chose one of his mirror image representatives to execute the deed—enter Jesus the Christ.

I submit to you that Jesus was the most brilliant human or entity of any kind to ever exist in the physical presence.  Even though  he was raised in Nazareth, a town of one hundred or less people with one single dirt street (path) and no school, and he was basically illiterate from an education standpoint, he was an intellectual genius of the highest order. He readily saw through the sanctimonious, hypocritical, belittling image of God that was being portrayed to the world by the Jews—they could actually bargain with God.

Although he had not the foggiest notion of particle physics (quantum mechanics), he was able to see the presence of God  in everything. In the Coptic Gospel of the apostle Thomas, Jesus is quoted as stating directly that, ‘the Kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth and you don’t see it’, paraphrased. With his cousin, John The Baptist, he determined that the Good News (gospel) of God’s perfect love for us must be spread to the entire world—hence the moniker Christ—the Light of the world.

IMG_1065They both knew that they would be killed because of their heretical teaching, but because they recognized that they were mirror images of God, they must persist—Jesus must instruct others to spread the word. It is impossible to determine if he was truly successful because the written word we have has been so terribly corrupted by people with the same attitude as the Jews who killed him. The bible has been written and copied so many times by so many people with an axe to grind  that the real truth is impossible to discern—hence the dozens of different versions  of his words. I ask you simply. “are different versions of the absolute truth possible?” I think not, but those, who for monetary gain, fame and power, would have you believe so.

Knowing that he would be killed (crucified) as a traitor, Jesus worked the obscure, outskirts of society while instructing both his apostles and others in his heretical teachings and understandings of God. Jesus readily understood that in order for God to demonstrate and be  perfect love, a price of retribution must be paid by God, himself—what better target of acceptance in atonement than an entire universe(s) of evil which he, himself created? Jesus knew that he was that sacrificial lamb because he was the only human to recognize it—it befell his fate to pay the price. After three years or so of attempted indoctrination of the public, and seeing that the authorities were closing in on him, he chose to confront them directly—he turned over the High Priests’ money tables all the while calling them hypocrites. Then he made one desperate effort at infusing the truth into the thick-headed, illiterate apostles heads. At his last supper, he told them emphatically that he(God) was in everything and that everything was in God(him). He used the simple bread and wine he had at hand for his proclamation—apples, bananas and pork belly would have served the purpose just as well. So they hung him on a tree until he died—the price was paid—Jesus demonstrated God’s perfect love to the entire world. The Christ, the light of the world was/is shining brightly!

For complete elucidation of these and many, many more concepts, please read my two books, Wilderness Cry-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God And The Universe, And Peace in Spirituality. Wilderness Cry gives complete and explicit analysis of God’s identity and activities. It also shows how God has been blindsided by religion. It demonstrates clearly that our only justifiable prayer is thanksgiving. Peace in Spirituality demonstrates clearly all the causes of discord in the world. More importantly, it outlines in clear, unmistakable terms the  only way to permanent peace. Both books published by Covenant Books and available world-wide, hard copy and e-books. A press release and short video trailer for Wilderness Cry are attached—please review.  All comments welcomed.

COMMON SENSE- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngCOMMON SENSE: WE hear this term used frequently in our every-day conversations and discussions. In general, it seems to imply an innate understanding of something without benefit of advance learning or education in the particular subject of discussion. Most often, the “common sense” method is applicable with correct results. Occasionally, however, what readily seems to be an obvious truth, may, in fact, be erroneous due to unknown extenuating circumstances. That, of course, is reason enough for us to show some reserve in our common sense “cock-sure attitude”. With that understanding, I would like to put you to little test of “Common sense”.

1- Assume that you are a young farmer, who wants to row-crop farm 2000 acres. You are almost totally ignorant of the farming process. Which source of information would your common sense direct you to: an astrologer/sage from 6000 yrs ago, or modern-day agricultural experts?

2-Assume you wanted to be an airline pilot. Would your common sense direct you to that same astrologer/sage from 6000 yrs ago or a modern avionics training facility?

3-Assume you wanted to design and build a 75 story sky-scraper hotel and you were totally ignorant about the process, would you consult an astrologer/sage from 6000 years ago, or would your common sense direct you to modern, highly educated architects and engineers?

Without intentionally demeaning anyone, I believe that if you chose the astrologer/sage from 6000 years ago for specific advise about any of the above considerations, you would be a complete fool, and would be exhibiting total lack of common sense.

Now lets consider the question of the most important thing in out lives; our “Eternal Existence”. Should not our common sense dictate that we accept the advice of modern-day philosophers, theologians, etc. concerning such matters rather than the skewed, superstitious, selfish, astrologer/sages from 6-8000 years ago? They started humanity out with an irrational concept of God (Supreme Being) based on absolutely no scientific knowledge of the universe. Their concepts were based on  superstitions and imaginations which had absolutely no foundation in fact. It may, in fact, seemed to them like “common Sense” at the time. However, as stated before, sometimes, commonsense is thwarted by unseen, unknown, or even unimaginable knowledge. Be that as it may, humanity has been “stuck” with that 6-8000 year old irrational, undefinable, and totally misunderstood concept of God. Additionally, since Jesus appeared on the scene, the stories about Him and His Father have become so distorted and fragmented that basically anyone claiming to be Christian is a Church/religion unto him/herself. The reason for all that confusion is clear. No one, prior to now, has ever defined the essence of our God (Supreme Being). Common sense teaches us that without essential definition, there cannot possibly be common, unified understanding. Seemingly, we have come to the “point of no return”. Each of the 33,000 Christian denominations is dug-in like a badger protecting its turf. No longer, if ever, does “religion” offer any real guidance or genuine concern about our eternal destiny. Its only concern is “MONEY- POWER- CONTROL. Expanding the empire is both the stated and unstated goal. So-called missionaries are swarming the earth like ants in an attempt to gain converts to their way of thinking.

Having an awareness of this terrible morass caused me to seek the answer. It came to my attention that the basic problem centered on concepts of God (Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, etc). There was no unanimity of thought or understanding of these entities, so it was impossible to have universal harmony. With that understanding, I set out to do something never before done. Some may say, by the grace of God, I succeed. I do not know where nor how the idea struck me, but out of the clear blue, the “essence of God became crystal clear”. Suddenly, I was able to define the Essence of God with six simple words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That essential definition is philosophically irrefutable. At the same time, it explains all the so-called mysteries in our lives. Because God is Perfect Love, Hell, Purgatory and the like are an impossibility. Perfect Love means “acceptance without conditions”. Jesus understood that concept completely and He tried desperately hard to instill it in His apostles. How successful he was, we’ll never know because the original writings are no longer available. All we have are the biased writings  of zealots made from a 200-300 year old copy which, itself, was only one of thousands of hand written copies. If anyone wants to know what Jesus really taught, you must read the Coptic Gospel Of Thomas (The Secret Sayings Of Jesus Christ). In that Gospel Jesus tells his apostles at least thirty times the same thing in different words trying to get the to understand, namely, that He was in all things and all things were in Him. His illiterate apostles apparently couldn’t understand (maybe they did—we’ll never know in this life). Had Jesus truly been a “GOD-MAN”, He would have had no problem communicating. However, since he was a super-genius human who recognized that God’s Spirit (Will) was imprinted on him and every thing in existence, he preached a cult of love; we must all love our God with our all, and we must all love one another as ourselves. That got Him killed–the Jews wanted no part of such heresy. Jesus knew that He must and would die for one reason only. God must pay the price for all the iniquity (selfishness)in the universe, thereby becoming “Perfect Love”.

So, let your “common sense” be your guide. Would you rather have an idea of God dreamed up by astrologers/sages 6-8000 years ago which explains nothing and has led to constant turmoil since, or would you choose a modern irrefutable definition of God which explains all. My common sense says the latter. With that understanding, and only with that understanding, is the concept of “universal like-mindedness” possible. That understanding is the only path to world peace. With that understanding, I have called for recognition and acceptance by all people of the “World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality”. Simply stated, that concept recognizes that God’s Brand is stamped on each of us. As such, we are all brothers-and sisters. We all would be of one mind-set with a common sense definition of the Essence of God.

I am not unaware that this line of thought is foreign to most. However, if you opened your minds and hearts to “Common Sense”, it might cease to seem foreign.

As an adjunct and guide to this understanding, I would encourage everyone to read my little philosophy book, Wilderness Cry. Available Amazon, Kindle, ET AL.

 

Propaganda- Wilderness Cry – H L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPROPAGANDA: It is very likely that each of us has been exposed to a similar degree of propaganda. That is to say that we have been under the influence of some organizational “here to say” verbiage that has been presented to us as irrefutable, gospel truth.  Because of our “brainwashing” influences, many, maybe most, of us have been suckered into a belief system that ” defies reality”. Each, in turn, is caught up in a smug cocoon of comfort. If we have enough external support, we feel very comfortable and secure in our own little cocoon. However, that comfort zone speaks nothing to reality. It is, in fact, so manifestly evident in the everyday presentation, of the  false zone of security, seen in individuals of differing ‘faith bases”. Just today, I witnessed the seemingly joyous gathering of a group of Roman catholic women who belong to the “First Friday” group. The First Friday group are people who have been convinced that attendance at mass and receiving communion on the First Friday of each month somehow entitles them to a special place in God’s heart and ultimately in His kingdom. Of course, the ultimate visible goal is the ensuing “happy hour” of breakfast, and endless gossip following each First Friday session. Now, lets examine that philosophy. It seems to me that if the “First Friday” observation were indeed important for our salvation, it would be observed in the most sanctifying manner; that is, each communicant would leave the group in self- dignified fashion and would never be “tempted” to dilute the “First Friday”sanctity with the effervescent verbosity exhibited routinely at the post-First Friday masses. To me the entire event represent a charade, masquerading under the guise of holiness and spirituality; a complete hoax. Now, in reality, none of the above is pertinent to our salvation; the entire concept is a hoax and a sham. Our Creator is Perfect; meaning it cannot possibly be influenced by our cunning, conniving schemes aimed at gaining influence over our neighbors; “I doubt there is a greater sin”. Anyone who attempts to gain influence over his/her neighbor by supposed “religious” applications is a hypocrite in the ultimate degree. God plays “no favorites”. Anyone who presumes otherwise is inglorious. All of those presumptions stem from a false concept of God. God is a perfect rational being. As such, it would be impossible for It to be prejudicial, and/or “play favorites”. God is perfect love which means It attaches no more value to one than another. Please read my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry, to understand completely this and many, many more implications. Amazon, Kindle, ET AL. All comments welcomed.

ARCHAIC- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngARCHAIC: It’s been a while since I was able to post; been running everywhere for graduations for last several weeks, plus working hard in my charity vegetable gardens. Things have settled down now, finally, and my time can be shared as desired. The prompt word of the day, “archaic”, caught my eye in a flash. I am no dummy. I have total awareness that each of us has been indoctrinated with some form of religious belief usually associated with a religious book (Bible, Quran, etc.). With that understanding, simple perusal of history plus observation of everyday events, shows us clearly that our methods have failed miserably. My contention is that our reference books of Spirituality are extremely archaic. I can hear you now shrieking in anger and dismay; such heretical language. Each person and/or group is dug-in like badgers protection their turfs while all the time attempting to expand their domains. With that observation, the simple question immediately arises. Why? My humble opinion suggests that the original premises upon which those books were written were terribly mistaken and misguided. The writers of those books had absolutely no scientific understanding of our existence nor of the universe in which they lived. Their superstitions led them to conjure up all sorts of ideations and perceptions which became reality to them. Later on, when Jesus appeared on the scene, they neither understood nor wanted to understand what he was telling them. Different writers about His life and sayings contradict themselves repeatedly, and usually about subjects used by the Church as doctrinal teachings. A couple of examples: In describing the circumstances surrounding Jesus birth, Luke says the Holy Family returned to Nazareth almost immediately while Matthew, describes astrologers (Magi, Wise men) coming in search of the New King after observing His star. This triggered an entire list of undesirable events including the “murder of the holy innocents”, Joseph and Mary being warned in a dream fleeing the country for as long as maybe twelve years. Consequently the Church created an entire set of rituals and feast Day of The Epiphany: in describing Jesus’ crucifixion, Luke presents a picture of two insurgents crucified with Jesus. One of them kept berating Jesus while the other asked Him to remember him when He came into His kingdom. Jesus says to him; “this day you shall be with Me in paradise”. Now during Lent and certain other occasions, the “sacrificial” Christians say the Apostles’ Creed which clearly states that Jesus died, descended into hell, and rose again on the third day; Matthew’s version shows both insurgents continuing to berate Him: Luke wrote the Acts of the Apostles (mostly what Paul did) some fifteen-twenty years after Paul had written very descriptively  his own activities in multiple letters to his constituents. When put side by side for comparison, Luke writes a “romantic” version to his own liking. Garry Wells, Emeritus Professor of History at Northwestern Univ., in his book, What Paul Meant, shows that Luke is a veritable liar. Hardly a single word in Acts is the correct account of activities as they actually occurrerd.  These few but very meaningful discrepancies in biblical writing discredit the Bible as a reliable source of Jesus’ activities and/or teachings.  Furthermore, it has been copied so many thousand times, all from one singular copy of copies surviving 200-300 years, there could be little doubt that multiple errors both intentional and unintentional have been made in the process. Also, we know from reliable sources, that the Quran has been reinterpreted to suit the desires of certain groups. In my opinion, to expect that multiple versions of Jesus’ life and words could have been written by multiple individuals and preserved in exact context is pure idiocy. Bart Ehrman, Professor of Bible, NCU, in one of his books (I believe, Jesus Interrupted), states matter-of-factly, that the KING JAMES VERSION of the Bible is the most corrupted of all. My point is this. If we are ever to have understanding and peace we must get off our archaic understanding of “sacred scriptures”. WE must all come to a rational understanding of common sense. The very first, and most important thing that must be done is to change our child-like understanding of the nature of our Divine Creator. Until that is done, peace can never come. Our Creator is not some Grizzled old man exotically robed and sitting on a throne in some inexplicable place “somewhere up-there”. Our Creator is simply and most importantly “a perfect rational being”. That understanding of the “essence” of our Supreme Being leads to no possibility of misunderstanding of who It is. I use the word It advisedly; our Creator has no “gender”. The word and description of God as our Father is the very, very, very prejudicial patristic attitude held about women forever. Men were the “superior” species; females were the enticement to all sin and, indeed, the first sinner, according to the simplistic ideation of creation as spelled out in the book of Genesis. The essence of the creator and manager of our entire universe must, by necessity, have a perfect intellect and a perfect will. Perfect means unchangeable, and for that reason, we have been duped forever into believing we can actually change Its mind. The Hebrews actually believed that they were bargaining with God, and consequently, dreamed up all sorts of schemes and scenarios to account for their delusional thinking. When Jesus came along with His message of Love (acceptance), they were dismayed, disappointed, and ultimately, disparaging. They had no interest in His message. All they wanted was their childish (Santa Claus), selfish, idea of a new paradise just for them alone to be fulfilled immediately. When Jesus told them that He had come to die for forgiveness of their iniquity, they were flabbergasted. Their Messiah had double-crossed them. So when they killed Him by hanging Him on a tree, they had to continue the drama by conjuring up a “second coming”. The Apostle Paul believed it to be imminent, maybe tomorrow, and told hid followers so. When it did not happen immediately, John Mark, Paul’s sidekick, who wrote the first Gospel fifteen to twenty years later, kicked the can down the road somewhat. He describes Jesus as saying it will all happen within the current generation (forty years). Well, can anyone bear the truth? It has been almost two thousand years since Mark wrote those words and no “second coming” yet. What does that mean. To me it means that the entire selfish idea was a myth from the beginning. It “aint” gonna happen. The reason is very clear. The basic premises upon which all those Old and New Testament stories were based are false.  As stated before, I’m no dummy. Anyone with “one eye and half sense” can see clearly that Religion is the largest moneymaking business and the most divisive business that the world has ever known. With 33,000 so-called Christian denominations in the world, and each claiming absolute and separate authenticity, it is clear that they are the culprits. Having said that, I am totally aware that, to many, religion is their most precious possession, because they have been told so and made to believe. Unwittingly, deep down however, most hold those of a different faith in some form of disregard, and, in many case downright disdain and even hatred. What a pity. And all profess goodness and kindness in the “face of the Lord”; a pure sham. I have heard snide remarks about other religions uttered from the pulpit of my church hundreds, maybe thousands of times in my eighty four years. How is that possible? Simply because the basic understanding of our Supreme Being has been in gross error throughout all recorded history. Now, I am aware that each of you will continue attending your church services because you have been disciplined to do so. However, as you listen to the constant haranguing over each little word of the “good book”, remember that your Creator is inestimably “greater” than anything you are hearing. The image of our Supreme Being is imprinted on each of us, and indeed, each entity in existence, just as free range cattle are branded. Jesus, our brother and representative, recognizing His and our inner being as a mirror image of our Creator, realized that it befell Him to “pay the price” for all the iniquity (selfishness) in the universe. He did so willingly but not without great fear and trepidation. That was the message He tried so desperately to get through the “thick skulls” of His apostles and others. Because He was human, He failed miserably on that attempt. He did not fail in His most important endeavor, the salvation of the entire universe. So, if genuine peace (acceptance of our fellow man as our equal) is ever to come, it is imperative that the ARCHAIC ideation of God instilled in each of us must be discarded. It must be replaced with “GOD IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING”. Ponder that for a while. While pondering, you will find great assistance in understanding those concepts in my little book, Wilderness Cry. I strongly urge you to read it; Amazon, Kindle et al.  All comments welcomed, handg@comcast.net.

OBSERVE- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

OBSERVE: Observation is one of the basic tools of scientific investigation. Typically, scientific experiments encompass three aspect; postulation, experimentation and obscropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngervation. Today, I want to talk about a subject very near and dear to my heart, and that is the very nature of God, God’s Essence. I was raised in a very strict Roman catholic environment, having been educated to the hilt for nineteen years in Catholic institutions. In the beginning, I was taught Catholic Catechism as though it were arithmetic. It was instilled in me that God was somewhat schizophrenic in the sense that he loved me one second, but would send me straight to hell the very next second for infraction of one of His or the Church’s rules. As a young child, that was very frightening and disconcerting. As a juvenile, I began to notice that nothing we, either individually or as an entire community, prayed for ever materialized. When I questioned my pastor (priest) about that, he explained that it was God’s Will. From that time on, I began to sense that all the interminable praying and worshiping we  were doing seemed to be a total waste of time and energy. As a married adult, I sensed that the Church’s attitude about sex in general, and birth control specifically was completely irrational. I listened to Sunday sermons with priests riling about birth control, divorce and sexual subjects ad nauseum. Also, I noticed a complete disconnect between what I was taught and the reality I experienced in real life. I could see clearly all the problems, but the solution eluded me. We were taught about the Trinity, a mystery not understandable; Gods Will; The Holy Spirit; even God, Himself, but no definition of the essence of these entities was ever offered. Finally, it occurred to me that God’s essence must be defined if rationality were to prevail in our lives. After years of study and contemplation, it finally struck me–I must and could define God’s Essence. No one before me had ever done so. Great theologians had frequently spoken of the essence of God, but none had ever offer a definition. By defining God’s Essence thusly–“God Is A Perfect Rational Being”, I was suddenly able to eliminate all the “mysteries” from our lives. I was able to define the Trinity in explicit terms. The qualities of rationality are two; an intellect which perceives and a will that achieves. In the case of a Perfect Intellect, what would it perceive? Obviously, something perfect if available. Since It is the only Perfect Thing in existence, God’s Perfect Intellect reflects upon Itself and what does It see? A mirror image of Itself, exact and Perfect in every respects (we call It the Son, the second Person of the Trinity). Since we are speaking of the supernatural, that Image is living; two Persons, one God. So then what choioce do two Perfect rational Beings, perceiving each other have except to accept (love, choose, will) each other? That perpetual “Loving Energy” oscillating between the Two in perpetuity, we call the Holy Spirit (Will of God). Since that energy (vision) between the Two carries the perpetual image of Its generators, It is identical to Them, the third person of the Trinity; three persons, one same God. In the next segment, I will elucidate the many ramifications of that definition. In the meantime, if you wish to see the complete picture in its entirety, you may do so by reading my little book, Wilderness Cry. It leaves no stone unturned in our spiritual, temporal and eternal lives. It applies to every human that ever lived and to every religion  the world has ever known. It represents the ultimate summation of astute observation. So far, it has gotten nothing but rave reviews. Available Amazon, Kindle, and all major online book retailers.

Glimmer- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngGLIMMER- what a significant word to describe our chances for world peace. It means, of course, a faint light or insight. As we observe the world on a daily basis, what we see is constant bickering between ideological and/or religious group. Many of those bickerings escalate into outright war with resultant untold misery and death. All of those hostilities are generated by  diverse views about a creator or lack thereof with resultant selfish conquest. The only path to peace is for the world to recognize that we all have the same identical Creator, call It what you wish (Buddha, Allah, God, Brahma, Yahweh, etc.). We must all come to the understanding that the image of that Supreme Being is imprinted on each of us. As such, we all are brothers and sisters. With that understanding, we may be able to come to a loving (accepting of differences) relationship, rather than the hostile one which pervades our societies now. Understanding that philosophy prompted me to call for acceptance of the World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality. It is our only glimmer of hope for promoting and maintaining peace. My little book< Wilderness Cry explains all in clear scientific and philosophic terms. My hope is for all to read and understand. Amazon, Kindle, Et Al.    handg@comcast.net.

EXPLORE

IMG_0082Why are people so reluctant to explore other possibilities of cause-effect events in their lives? I have studied and pondered that question for decades. After discussing with people of all cultures and religions, and observing their attitudes, the main reason seems clear to me. Psychologically, most of us have been indoctrinated with a specific set of values and understandings of the nature of our existence. Even though we are keenly aware that hundreds/thousands of differing religions and ideologies exist, most of us persist in accepting our indoctrination as the “one and true”. A certain percentage of us, have not been so intensely schooled, and therefore are not as “locked in” to a specific, rigid way of thought. Generally, that group seem to be more malleable concerning exploring different ideas, and, in fact. seem to be more likely to switch allegiances. I have concluded that the principle reason for the rigidity seen in many has to do with security. That sense of security seems to come from an indoctrinational idea that strict adherence guarantees success (salvation), while deviation guarantees failure (hell). So, it can rightly be seen as a “security blanket”. We often have heard the term “hard shelled” used to describe such people. It is, therefore, quite understandable how and why such attitudes exist. In itself, that attitude poses no problem. However, invariably, when two “hard shells” of different beliefs clash, the result, too frequently, is a “blood bath” of verbiage; sometimes with loss of friendship and even permanent hostility. And therein lies the horror of rigidity concerning our existence. Rather than being “open-minded” and willing to explore other views while searching for  common ground and thereby promoting love and peace, what we see is exactly the opposite; association is grudgingly accepted, common understanding is never obtained, and peace is never possible. Observing and studying that conundrum for years compelled me to seek a solution. It occurred to me that everyone was arguing about a being (God, Yahweh, Buddha, Allah, Brahma, etc.)as their Supreme Being, but not one of them had ever defined that being. After years of consideration, the definition occurred to me. Our universal Supreme Being must be defined as “A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. That definition explained easily all the mysteries in our lives. It shows the Perfect Love of our Creator, negating any possibility of Hell. As rational beings all humans must recognize that the Spirit of our Supreme Being is imprinted on each of us; we all are common brothers and sisters. I was  able to arrive at those conclusions only by being flexible in my attitude. It was  mandatory that other ideas be explored in search of curative help. In recognition of our common spirituality I have called upon all religious leaders to accept the concept of the “World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality”. It is our only way to peace. I have described in detail my basis for such philosophy in my powerful little book Wilderness Cry. I encourage each of you to be open to exploration and avail yourselves of my book.
