TRAITOR JESUS—You may shriek in horror at such a suggestion, but that is exactly what he was and he knew it. Jesus knew that what he was preaching was treasonous as far as the Jews were concerned. And just what was Jesus teaching that veered so radically from Jewish theology? In a nutshell the Jews put God in one spot and all his creation elsewhere. God was sitting on a throne constantly watching the activities of his created children. When they were bad, God sent all sorts of torment on them. Conversely, when they were good , God showered them with blessings of all kinds but mainly lots of animals and lots of sons to tend the flocks. Jesus appeared on the scene teaching that God was in everything and that everything was in God. He taught that he and everyone and everything were mirror images of God. Recognizing the universal evil of SELFISHNESS, Jesus saw himself as the sacrificial lamb who must die in atonement for all the worlds evil. Jesus knew that his teachings would bring crucifixion. so he stayed in the shadows for most of his ministerial years. He made a desperate attempt to educate the twelve illiterate apostles to what he was saying and who God really was. It seems very doubtful that he succeeded at all. I say that because the bible we have now show very little testimony to his real teachings. However those bibles were written and rewritten dozens of times to suit the whelms of the writers. The only clear testamentary writing I can find is the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. In that writing, Jesus tells his apostles over and over and over again that he is in everything and everything is in him. He also tells them that everything is of the same substance. However in the synoptic gospels, Jesus says the same thing at the last supper. He tells them that the bread and wine they were eating and drinking were his body and blood. I submit to you that if he had a banana and a fish and some Irish whiskey, he would have told them the same thing. All of those teachings were total heresy and were considered treason. After exhausting all efforts at inculcating his apostles, he readily confronted the Jewish hierarchy in the temple which brought him to the tribunal that pronounced treason and demanded crucifixion. Golgotha was the high point along the roadway in Jerusalem and all traitors, of which there were many, were crucified there in plain sight as a reminder to would-be insurgents as to what their fate would be. Jesus had a twofold plan—to die for all iniquity, and to educate the world through the apostles about the true identity of God. He definitely succeeded in the first effort but was a total failure in the second. There may be some institutions in this world that recognize and preach the true identity of God, but I have not yet encountered any. The reason for that is plain as the nose on your face. No one before me has defined the essence of God. Without that essential definition, they know not anything about that which they preach. I have defined the essence of God thus: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality explains all and eliminates all mystery about the nature of God. It mandates the understanding that the image of God is stamped on everything; elsewise it could not exist. Jesus with his super intellect saw through that understanding—he recognized the universal evil of selfishness and recognized that, since he was the only one to see that, he was committed to paying the price. He did so willingly but with ungodly fear and trepidation. Jesus, the traitor paid the price that we may have eternal peace with God. You may find a complete accounting of this philosophy in my book Wilderness Cry, and my soon to be released book, Peace in Spirituality—both by Covenant Books. All comments welcomed.
The definition of the word ignorant reveals a perfect description of most people’s understanding of God and its functions. The word itself stems from the Latin ignorantem which means lack of wisdom or knowledge, unawareness etc. Since the beginning of recorded history, great thinkers have tried desperately to define the essence of God. The word essence, itself, has derivation in many languages, but basically means “to be”. In other words, essence is that quality of being that make something what it basically is. Accidents are those attributes that make something the specific one of its essential kind. For instance, I frequently use the example of tables; the essence of a table is its “tableness”, that being the singular quality that makes it a table. The accidents of a table, round, square, rectangular, four legged, three legged, five legged, wood, glass, wrought iron, etc. are those attributes that make it a specific table or a specific design. With that essential understanding, then, we see how important it is to define God’s essence. Otherwise we do not know God—we are totally ignorant. The great philosophers and theologians of all major religions throughout history, recognizing the simplistic understanding of God, have tried in futility to understand and define God’s essential nature—all failed miserably, and they failed for one simple but very essential reason—they knew no science. The word science comes from the root Latin scientia which means knowledge which of course is truth and truth is perfection. The only person to ever live who was able to define God’s essence was the genius, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus knew no physical science, but he surely understood philosophical science better than anyone who ever lived. He knew that In order for anything to be, it must be marked with God’s love, the Holy Ghost. He could see clearly how the Jews, while proclaiming a one true God, used that proclamation for their own political and monetary gain. They concocted a picture of God to their own liking. They designed a god who was a King sitting on a thrown, observing his creation, and hurling both good and evil at it and its inhabitants, seemingly on a whelm. They devised schemes of bargaining with their God and even went so far as to carry him around on their shoulders in a wooden box, The Arc Of The Covenant. Of course only certain ones of them were allowed to offer sacrifice to their God, and he charged a pretty penny. As time went on, a temple was built around the Arc Of The Covenant—the high priest was the only person allowed inside the arc to actually offer the sacrifice. Since each offering had to be perfect, The High Priest, himself, was the one to furnish them—presumably he charged penitents a fortune for those perfect offerings. Hence, the New testament story of Jesus overturning the money-changers table and thrashing them with a whip. Does anyone see the similarity between the High Priest and the Arc, and the Christian priest and the tabernacle. In the Catholic Mass, at the offertory, the priest proclaims his intention to make a perfect offering to God. Seemingly, all of this ritual comes straight out of the Jewish playbook, and furthermore, it was allowed to come into play by Constantine at the first Council at Nicaea. He gave the bishops strict orders and leeway to fashion a religion of their choosing—and that they did. They were in total control with the official backing of the Roman Empire. The history of the unthinkable abuses which eventually led first to the Greek Schism and later on the Protestant Reformation is generally well known. Here we are today still shackled by the same ignorance as at least 4000 years ago. Christianity alone is fragmented into over 33,000 denominations, each claiming authenticity, and not one of them being based on an essential definition of an entity they claim so self-righteously to know. One of the most famous theologians to tackle the subject was a German, Meister Eckhart. Joel Harrington describes in detail how Meister Eckhart struggled all his life to define God’s essence. He realized that the miniscule understanding of God was dreadfully insufficient. In his book Dangerous Mystic, Harrington describes with erudite clarity Eckhart’s struggles. Many of his assertions were directly heretical and were brought before the Inquisition, but he died before he could be convicted. I highly recommend Harrington’s book. In my case, at an early age, being raised in a strict Roman Catholic family, I began to see discrepancies in what I was taught to believe and what I could observe. By age thirty or so, I became determined to discover the truth. It was indeed a 50 year struggle and endeavor—I knew all the questions, but the answers were elusive. I read, studied, reasoned, became frustrated like others before me. I was a busy, innovative, Orthopedic surgeon, married with five children—my life was very full, but I never relaxed in my quest for understanding. Finally, one day about ten years ago it hit me—the definition of God’s essence was clear as crystal. What allowed that clarity was my understand of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics). That understanding showed me that everything in this universe is made up of exactly the same tiniest particles of energy. Those particle have various names and functions but not one more or less is in existence now than 13.7 billion years ago, nor will there ever be a change in their number and function. Each is perfect in form and function. That recognition told me instantly that Jesus was correct. Each of those perfect particles could only be perfect by virtue of their creator being perfect and branding them with its perfect love, the Will of God, the Holy Spirit. I was instantly able and mandated to define the essence of God with all ease. Six simple English words say it all—God is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition is all inclusive and irrefutable. Not one word can be added or detracted. It says it all. I then preceded to write my own philosophy book which I publishes almost three years ago, and Covenant Books republished and released in March of this year. Its title is WILDERNESS CRY-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe. It is available at Amazon and all on-line retailers and e-books. In my book, I describe the entire process of getting to the essential definition. I wipe away all of the so-called mysteries in religion. With all ease I define and describe in clearest terms a vivid graphic picture of the Trinity, the Soul, Eternity, Heaven and many, many aspects of life. I show how organized religion of all regions of the world have created chaos on a continuing basis. I show that God’s Perfect Love precludes any possibility of Hell. In short, I removed all the ignorance about God and his creation. Maybe the most important aspect of this knowledge is to debunk the idea that God is separate from its creation. God’s Spirit is the soul of every energy particle in existence. God is our soul, and we will never (cannot possibly) be separated from it. In nearly three years time, not a single word of blow-back from anyone—no rebuttal is possible. I have requested it repeatedly, but none is forthcoming—the reason is simple—none is possible. Oh I’m sure it rubs a lot of people the wrong way for various reason but that’s all they can say. Its understandable that most people don’t like being told how they have been duped all their lives, but that has nothing to do with truth. I have another book, Peace in Spirituality, which will be released by Covenant Books soon—2 months or so. It expands the essence of God and shows the only way to permanent peace. Peace is possible but highly unlikely anyways soon for obvious reasons—money, control, power. Those three culprits are the result of the only evil in the world, universal selfishness. I highly recommend you read my books and eliminate your IGNORANCE. All comments welcomed.
Perfection: Do a little quick soul searching. Do you really understand what it means to be perfect, or, possibly, do you tend to glibly hear the term and brush it off as blather? My experience indicates that percentage-wise, very, very few people ascribe the proper attributes to perfection. Without absolute perfection, nothing in the universe could function. So what is this perfection and where is its basis?
I have stated many, many times in writing that every thing and every event of any kind is perfect in form and function and is a perfect example of what it purports to be. I am able to say that with certainty because of the known perfection of every quantum (tiniest particle if energy) which make up every gravid thing in existence. Each of those tiny particles with various names are absolutely perfect in form and function. Furthermore, there is not one more nor less in existence today than existed at the time of their inception (creation, release, appearance), and there will be no more nor less at the time of their recall. A combination of those tiny quanta make up the basic units of all atoms (protons, neutrons, electrons). A varying combination of those three basic units constitute the different elements in all creation. Those atoms may react with each other to form molecules; molecules react with each other to form compounds, and compounds can be formulated to create all the different materials in existence. All of those functions are perfect and predictable in their activity and results every time. That explains why when you get in your automobile and push the ignition button, the engine starts and you are able to navigate from place to place. That same example applies to every action or activity or occurrence of any kind in the entire universe.
You might legitimately ask, whats my point? Simply stated, my point is this. I want to shake you loose from your doldrums, and create an awareness of the perfection in all things. I want to make you think about your existence: how it came to be in the first place, how it continues, and what happens to it in the unknown hereafter. There are seemingly three basic classes of believers in the world: those who accept the concept of God; those who deny the concept of God; those who say simply they can’t (don’t) know.
For those like me who accept the idea of God, we must acclaim that God with his perfect intellect envisioned his creation (all the quanta in existence), and with his perfect will chose them and keeps them perfect. Therefore, it is impossible for anything or any occurrence to be imperfect. Every storm, every earthquake, every hurricane, every loaf of bread, every tree leaf, every grain of sand etc. is a perfect example of what it is. A second set of similar events and objects would be different from the first but each would still be perfect for its set of circumstances.
We sometimes get confused when “bad” things happen such as a car wreck and often start looking for excuses or someone to blame. We even question how God could allow such to happen. We fail to recognize that it was someone’s perfect negligence or a perfect mechanical failure, or a myriad of other perfect conditions which led to the perfect wreck. In other words, that specific wreck was a perfect result for its set of generating circumstances. So what’s my point. My point is we must always be aware of our obligation to know all that we can, to respect the perfection in everything we encounter, and more importantly be respectful of others; stop the blame game.
Those who deny God or say they simply can’t know, suggest that the perfect order in the universe “just happened”—even Stephen Hawking, the great quantum physicist, suggested such a possibility. The truth is, no one can prove nor disprove the existence of a Supreme being. That is where Faith comes in.
There are all kinds of faith: we have implicit faith that when we get on an airplane, it will take us safely to our intended destination. However, we are fully aware from previous experiences of others that failure of one kind or another may occur. Those failures are always the perfect result of a set of perfect faults which generated the outcome.
So my purpose here is to stimulate your awareness of God’s Perfection in “all things and events”.
I do not want to seem nor sound commercial, but if you want a more thorough understanding of these concepts, please read my little book Wilderness Cry (Amazon et al). In addition, I will be releasing a sequel “Peace in Spirituality” within a few months.
Happy New Year to all!!!
COMMON 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.
INTUITION: This beautiful English word describes the intellectual ability to recognize and comprehend truth under conditions and/or circumstances which otherwise tend to be obscured or camouflaged. Intuition con-notates an insightful ability to ferret out truth which otherwise is hidden from most individuals. So, the world is rife with seemingly insoluble problems, all or most of which involve hostilities, or at a minimum evidence of gross selfishness and/or greed. Essentially all major differences are based on ideological and/or religious differences. One might reasonably ask why the differences? Why are the peoples of the world not of one, singular, mind-set? The answer is clear, the solution very murky. Throughout all of recorded history, different groups of people have conjured up ideas concerning a “higher power” or lack thereof. Each group has developed a scheme of understanding different from all others. In addition, since they were generated during a time of total scientific void, all are based on significant mythological ideas that have no relationship nor basis in reality. Therefore, as those ideologies and religions sprang forth regionally, each has been in a constant effort of expanding through both proselytizing and hostile aggression. What we have today is numerous major religions, each with varying divisions and sub-divisions. In Christianity alone, there are 33,000 denominations. Likely, when all are tallied, if possible, the total number of religious denominations would number in the hundreds of thousands. Mind you, each one of those denominations claims to be the one and only true religion. That situation, of course, sets the stage for continuing and continual hostilities, if not overt, at least subliminal. With that readily recognizable knowledge, it is very easy to see and understand the “cause” of the problem. What about the “solution”? Believe it or not, every problem has a concrete solution based on absolute fact and truth. That is where, Intuition, Insight, Honesty and Humility come into play. Lets begin with the basic premise that Peace must be based on “Like-mindedness”. All of humanity must have the same conceptualization of a Supreme Being. How is that to be possible? Lets consider what we have now; thousands and thousands of religious sects, each with the professed idea of a Supreme Being, but no two of which have the same idea and/or understanding. Why does that situation prevail? Very Simply, for a variety of reasons ( ignorance, selfishness, lack if insight and/or intuition, lack of/or acceptance of known science). Not one single person before me has ever “defined the essence” of our Supreme Being. The only way we can have “like-mindedness” is to have a clear-cut definition of the entity we label as a Supreme Being (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc.). I have in fact, in my powerful little philosophy book, Wilderness Cry , defined the Essence of God. With that essential definition, every human can and must conceptualize our SB with an essential like-mindedness. By defining the Essence of God as “A Perfect Rational Being”, I am able to remove any and all doubt about SB’s nature. It is perfect in all respects; therefore change is not possible. It has created every quantum of energy that make up everything in existence; each of them is perfect in form and function by virtue of SB’s Perfect Will (Holy Spirit). SB is “perfect love), meaning It accepts us and all our selfishness without conditions. That concept negates any idea of Hell, Purgatory etc. The genius Jesus, recognized that His soul and the soul of everything in existence mirrored its Creator. He saw that everything in existence was evil by virtue of its selfishness. He also saw that selfishness was necessary for the universe to function. He realized that in order for SB to be perfect love, It must “pay the price” of acceptance of all iniquity by dying in atonement. Jesus Insight and Intuition, led Him to know that since He was the only person to understand that fact, He was the “Chosen One”, the Messiah who had to pay the price. He was our representative. He did so willingly, but with great human angst. Consequently, our only “justifiable” prayer is “Thank you Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will of God). Amen. Have I shown you conclusively how proper insight and intuition can and must lead to world peace? Without that “Like-mindedness”, humanity and every living thing on this earth is DOOMED. Now consider this. Lets assume that by some miracle, the entire world accepted my philosophy, what would happen to religion. Instantly, there would be no need for any church, preacher, priest, bishop, pope, etc. In our like-mindedness of understanding of our SB as A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING, religion and pagan ideologies would instantly be “Null and Void”. I might add, parenthetically, that the chance of such understanding and acceptance by organizes religion would be equal to the proverbial “snowball in hell” scenario. That obvious fact does not, in any way, negate the absolute truth of what you just read. The only way that change would ever be possible, is from grass-roots up. If the public is not educated and brought to an insightful level of understanding, nothing will change for the better. That is why I plead for everyone to read my little book–it explains all.

PROPAGANDA: 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.
I want to make it perfectly clear that in all my blog commentaries, my intention is to never offend or demean anyone. It is, however, intended to “tickle” the deepest recesses of your intellect, and stimulate you to independent thinking. Without doubt, most of you, as I , were brainwashed with a mythical image of an Irate God who would swish you into eternal fire of hell on the slightest whelm. That ideology defies any concept of an all loving “Perfect God”. I want you to consider this, seemingly simple but, very important concept. No one, before me, has ever defined the “essence” of God. That means everyone talks about an entity they cannot define. That in itself is irrational. We are never allowed to attempt to speak definitively about any entity whose essence we cannot define. Otherwise, we could not possibly communicate with another rational being. Since no one before me has defined the essence of God, then it behooves all of you to heed my essential definition. Before you read any farther, I want each of you to make a concerted effort at defining God. Then I want you to read my description and see how they coincide. Likely, you will be amazed and pleasantly surprised at how simple and complete and irrefutable my definition is. From past experience, it is very likely that most of you will attempt to define God by describing some of Its attributes. However, attributes do not suffice for an essential definition. I want you to very carefully formulate a description of God in as few as six to eight words, so that if you were describing the basic nature of God to a completely UN-indoctrinated person, that person would have a clear picture of God’s essential nature ( that which makes It what It is). Have you formulated your definition. OK: see how your definition compares with mine. I have defined God thus with six simple words. Sounds crazy that God could be define with six simple English words? Try This: God Is A Perfect Rational Being. So how does that relate? When we say God, it means we accept there is God. When we say “is”, we mean It always is in the ever present. When we say “A”, we mean It is singular (triune, but singular). When we say Perfect, we mean It is lacking in nothing; It cannot be helped; It cannot be hurt. When we say “rational, we mean It has two basic attributes; an Intellect which perceives all and a Will which achieves all. When we say “being”, we mean It exists. So there you have a complete “essential” definition of our Creator. Notice I use the word It to describe out Supreme Being. Religious, prejudice and very biased people have ascribed the term “Father” to describe God. Does God have Gender? Does It have Penis and testicles? Is It capable of breeding? If so, what or who? Those prejudicial, gender driven, descriptions of God were generated by a very, very biased patristic society which gave no quarter of importance at all to the female. But those patristic descriptions of God are subliminal brainwashing of the cruelest form, and have led to the most despicable degree of guilt among all people but especially females. That guilt is translated daily into tumultuous anxiety and depression with frequent eventual suicide. Do you have a clearer understanding of God now. Our God is Perfect Love as manifested through Jesus , who, recognizing that His inner being was a mirror image of Its Generator, freely chose to give His Life in complete reparation for our “selfishness”. That concept completely negates any possibility of Hell, Purgatory and the likes. For a complete understanding of these important concepts, and , more importantly, for complete escape from the throws of irrationality, you must read my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry; Amazon, Kindle Et Al.
