SPIRIT-SPIRITUAL-SPIRITUALITY—HILARY L HUNT MD

SPIRIT-SPIRITUAL-SPIRITUALITY— a quite long title involving two nouns and an adjective concerning the same subject. So, just what is ‘spirit’ anyway? We hear that word used often with seemingly different connotations. Often, especially at Halloween time, the word is meant to be synonymous with ghost. In fact, the original versions of the Bible refer to the Holy Ghost. As I personally listen, I strongly suspect the user of that word doesn’t fully comprehend its meaning—I may be wrong.

We often hear expressions such as, ‘boy, she sure has spirit’, or ‘he is such a spiritual guy—likewise, ‘I wonder where that group gets all of its spirituality?’ What about the Holy Spirit—probably the most common usage. And, no doubt, each listener has a different interpretation and/or understanding of what was said. Why do you suppose that is?

If you look up the definition of ‘spirit’ in the dictionary, you will find a long, rambling, jargonistic definition with no explicit meaning. And that definition stems from the fact that no one before me has defined the ‘essence of God’—that definition demands the understanding of just who the Holy Spirit is. Likewise, it gives a concrete definition and understanding of the essential definition of ‘spirit’.

We have irrefutably defined the essence of God thus: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That rationality translates into A Perfect Intellect which perceived all and a Perfect Will which achieved all. That Perfect Intellect represents God, the Father, that Perfect Intellect reflecting upon itself sees a ‘mirror image of itself’—being in the supernatural means that image is a living being, the second person of the Trinity, God the Son. Those two Perfect Intellects viewing each other have no choice except to accept (love, choose, will, spirit) each other. That ‘willing’, drive, choosing, loving each other carries the perpetual image of its generators, and, again, being in the supernatural, is a living being, identical to its generators—the third person of the Trinity—the Holy Ghost (Spirit).

With that perception in play, we may now define the essence of spirit in absolute terms: spirit is the ‘unseen driving force’ which causes an action—it may be described as drive, choice, love, acceptance, or will.

So then, how does ‘spiritual’ come into play? It most often is used in religious or contemplative way—usually describing an individual or group exhibiting a devotional attitude of one kind or another. However, it could just as well be used to describe the attitudinal dedication of a determined athlete or anyone dedicated to a cause of any kind. Its antonyms might be defined as lazy, indifferent, lackadaisical etc.

What about ‘spirituality’? Simply put, it is the state of being or the defining quality of being ‘spiritual’. How, then, does it apply? In the natural world, like everything else, it has limits, faults, inconsistencies, and finiteness. Nevertheless, it has many good qualities. For instance, investigative spirituality has been responsible for literally all of the scientific discoveries as well as the benefits derived from those discoveries and their ensuing developments and deployments.

From the beginning of recorded history, humanity was shackled by a spirituality of astrology, superstition, and mythology—the ‘driving force’ of all of their beliefs and activities. That force led them to understand and believe that there was a ‘higher power’ which exerted influences on their lives. They reasoned, in one way or another, and, in one place or another, world-wide, but, surprisingly, in similar fashion how that/those higher powers operated. Most groups reasoned that those powers were responsible for all the good and bad things that happened in their lives. In addition, many surmised that those powers (gods) needed to be appeased in order to bring more good from them. Accordingly, various forms of sacrificial rituals were developed. Some of those rituals actually included human sacrifice—usually a teen-aged girl. Be that as it may, each and every one of those sacrificial rituals became known as ‘religion’. Strangely, it seems that rituals of every form and description sprang up rather simultaneously on all inhabited continent’s.

In South America, the native Maya and Inca nations built many temples of worship for their God. The north American natives as well as the far East Asians were more contemplative—they seemed to sense the presence of god in everything. The Indians had specific names for each of the visible and palpable elements ( wind, moon, stars, rivers, etc.). The Far Easterners, Hindus, Buddhists and related kind recognized the ‘presence of god in everything’, but, simultaneously, were intent on understanding and defining the basic essence of that god—I believe they still are.

On the other hand, in the Middle East, Abraham, a Hebrew, recognized and accepted the concept of a singular God, He and his successors developed schemes of ‘bargaining’ with him. In the meantime, the Egyptians had developed their own scheme of things based mainly on the Zodiac from fourteen thousand year back. They had baptism, and their god was a ‘trinity’ god—father, son, and holy ghost. When one died, he had to cross the Nebel Bridge in order to get to heaven and a new life. However’ on that bridge he met with a judge (the holy ghost) who balanced his good and bad deeds—if the good outweighed the bad he got free passage—if the bad outweighed the good, he got pushed off the bridge into Sheol, the Netherworld below.

As time passed, famine hit the Hebrew tribe and they were obliged to purchase grain from the plentiful Egyptians. During the process, they became enslaved by the Egyptians—during that forty year entrapment, they adopted some of the Egyptian religious customs, particularly baptism. Upon their delivery from slavery and escape to the Promised Land, they also developed a religious scheme for appeasing their God. It started with the Ten Commandment and eventuated with 640-some rules and regulations controlling every aspect of Jewish life—sin was invented

Enter Jesus and Christianity was born. Through turmoil and strife it rather rapidly spread westward to Europe and southward to North Africa. Reportedly, all of Jesus’ apostles were killed except John who was banished to the Isle of Patmos—he supposedly lived one hundred years. During those sixty fife years or so, Peter, James and John developed a scheme of ‘power transfer’ from themselves to their underlings—and the first Catholic Church was born. Peter, ,of course, was the first pope. Five hundred ad seventy years or so after Jesus’ death, Mohammed established Islam—and the three Abrahamic religions were established.

Now, mind you, up to that point in time, there already were hundreds, maybe thousands, of different religions and religious sects in existence—and no two alike—many similar but no two identical. Since that time there have been thousands and thousands of Religions spring up ,world-wide—and why?

Plainly, each in turn had ‘spirit’ but not one knew the ‘source’ of that spirit. Therefore each, in turn was based on a mythical understanding of its spiritual generator—mainly the Zodiac. While, I have not seen it personally, it is my understanding that a giant Zodiac is embedded in the stone/brickwork of Saint Peter’s Square in Rome.

So, with that historical overview, we can logically and legitimately address ‘spirit’ and its derivatives. We already know and understand that human as well as all ‘natural spirit’ is temporary and subject to both change and even failure. But what about Eternal Spirit—the Holy Spirit—how does it apply in our lives?

Allow me to start this way. We’re going to assume that we have a pile of identical bricks one hundred feet high and covering an area one mile square. In addition, we have seven other identical sized piles but the bricks in each pile are a different size and color from the other seven piles. So each brick in each pile is identical and indistinguishable from its counterparts—each is perfect in size, shape and function. Now we are ‘ready to build’.

So we dutifully go out and build and build and build. We build schools, temples, stores, post offices, etc. By the time we have exhausted all of our brick supply, guess what?—the mortar holding the bricks together in our first buildings decays, liberating the bricks—and our supply is replenished.

Now with this simple little paradigm, I have described God, the Big Bang and his creation. It is God’s perfect intellect that envisioned each of those perfect, tinniest particles of energy of different varieties and functions (quanta). In aggregate, they represent a mirror reflection of That Perfect Intellect—they are God. He commissioned them with his Perfect Will (Holy Spirit) to be perfect and perform perfectly. Like their creator, each is prefect, unchanging, and unchangeable—Like God they exist in Eternity.

So what does all that means/ Very simply, everything we see and don’t see is made of those perfect little bricks which never change. You’re looking out your window—that big tree in on your landscape is beautiful—some day it will vanish—its bricks wont—they’ll show up in a blade of grass, a weed, a pile of mud, in water molecules. They may help constitute billions of physical objects before time ends and only Eternity is left, but guess what—they always have been eternal and perfect because the were imagined by God and are driven by the Spirit of God who is prefect.

So then, what is Spirituality?—how does it apply to our recognizance?. It is, in fact, the most important understanding and acceptance we can possibly have. Look at the world this very minute—nothing but chaos universally—there is no ‘peace’—there is no ‘tranquility’—why? Because there is absolutely no ‘like-mindedness’. And why is there no like-mindedness? Because no one knows who God is. In order for us to have like-mindedness, we absolutely must understand and accept the fact that everything in this universe is made of the identical prefect God-generated and Holy Spirit (God) commissioned particles of energy. We and every star in the farthest galaxy are of identical material—we are brothers and sisters with evert blade of grass, every tree, every flower , every fish,every existence of every kind—we all are God.

Like-mindedness delivers that understanding and acceptance—that my friends is Spirituality. In my Book, Wilderness Cry, I define the essence of God and its ramifications. In my book Peace in Spirituality, I elaborated on just one of the billions of ramifications of that understanding—Spirituality—its meaning and implications. In calling for the World-wide Communion of Spirituality, I am reiterating my desperate call Peace through Spirituality—religion not only has failed the process—it is the problem. Religion is not the peace-maker—its the peace breaker.

CONSEQUENCES-HILARY L HUNT MD

Consequences– seems like a strange title for a blog post, or does it? Please allow me to explain. Knowing the ultimate implications of consequences is undoubtedly the ‘most important understanding’ we can possibly have. I can hear you now saying to yourself, ‘what is that simpleton talking about?’. And I answer by saying, ‘listen-up and I will explain post-haste’.

The word consequence means ‘the effect or result of an action or condition’. So, you may say, ‘what’s that got to do with anything?’—I would say, ‘everything’. The primary question, then, is ‘when did consequences begin?’. The obvious answer is, ‘with the beginning of time’—time, of course, is a measure of ‘change’. So how and when did ‘time begin?’.

Once upon a time, there was no time; only eternity. However there is that Perfect Rational Being who exists in eternity. With its ‘Perfect Intellect’ it perceived of converting (demonstrating) its perfect energy by the creation of Perfect Little Particles of itself, known as quanta (pleural for quantum). A quantum is the smallest particle of energy (matter) which can not be subdivided. That Perfect Intellect perceived of several varieties of those quanta to which we humans have given names such as leptons, bosons, quarks, etc. Each of those particles is identical and indistinguishable from its counterparts. Collectively, they represent all of the ‘bricks’ from/of which every material thing in this universe is made.

We human have dubbed that Perfect Rational Being (Prime Mover) by hundreds of different names—the most familiar in modern times likely are God, Allah, Yahweh, Buddha and Brahma. I know of no human dead or alive who recognized that Prime Mover as ‘A Perfect Rational Being’ except me and Jesus. And I can hear you again screaming, yelling, tearing your hair our at my extreme brashness. All I calmly ask is, ‘show me another’—you can’t. Now back to the subject at hand.

Having visualized those perfect quanta along with a ‘performance task’ for each class, that Perfect Intellect said ‘hmm, I love that’. So with its Perfect Will (the Will of God, The Holy Spirit), it said, ‘I will those quanta to be Perfect and stay Perfect—I “love them; I choose them; I put my ‘brand of Perfection’ on each. Instantly, they came into being and simultaneously ‘time began’. Immediately, those quanta ‘went to work’ doing perfectly what they were created and commissioned to do, and guess what, they’re still doing it.

Of course, as each performed its task, something happened—there was a consequence. They rapidly formed Hydrogen and Helium atoms. As those massive gas clouds gathered, their density increased and a ‘star was born’—-there was light—another consequence. Eventually, the universe was filled with celestial bodies of all sizes, shapes and descriptions as we know them today—each a direct consequence of what went (happened) before—always in prefect fashion—a perfect consequence.

Now, fast-forward a few billion years. The sequences and consequences had resulted in the generation of ‘living’ things—that is, things that could reproduce themselves, and that they did. Initially, those living organisms seemingly had no intelligence of their own—they could, and did, react to stimuli—always in ‘perfect fashion’—a perfect consequence.

Now, fast-forward again—intelligent beings were consequentially generated and in perfect fashion. Cumulatively, and individually, each and every one of those distinct rational beings progressed on its own path of ‘perfect consequential development’ to being the ultimate individual it became at its death. No two could possibly be the same because no two could possibly have experienced each and every identical stimulus.

Somewhere, sometime, along the way, those intelligent beings noticed considerable differences in each other. They didn’t/couldn’t agree on a ‘code of civil conduct’—the reason for that, of course was each had different ideas about what was proper—each was a different ‘consequence’. Eventually, as their numbers and differences increased, they split into diverse tribes/nations and did develop rules of conduct—a direct consequence of intelligent ‘common sense’. They established ‘leaders’ with names such as Pharos and Kings.

One such tribe was the Israelites who the Bible tells us were enslaved by the Egyptians. The Israelites were stricken with a famine, and consequently, were forced to purchase grain from the Egyptians. During their forty year enslavement, a new leader named Moses was born. Mind you, the Israelites has already ‘recognized’ a singular God. They knew that when bad things happened, it was the consequence of their misdeeds. Likewise, when things were going well, they had God’s favor—consequently, they best behave.

As luck would have it, Moses grew to manhood, murdered someone, and was forced to live in exile for many years. However, upon his return, somehow (the Bible never made that clear to me), he and his brother Aaron assumed control of the Israelite tribe. They petitioned the Pharos to release them from slavery so they could go to the ‘promised land’. Of course, the Pharos refused, so Moses petitioned his God to send plagues on the Egyptians. After the tenth plague, the Pharos relented and allowed the Israelites to depart—a direct consequence of torment from God and fear of more of the same.

The Israelites escaped with many sequential and consequential events occurring on their journey, Eventually, as they wandered aimlessly and helpless in the desert, many of the tribesmen lost faith in Moses leadership and even his God. As a consequence, they began worshiping idols, and doing all sorts of illicit things. Moses and Aaron scolded them to no avail. Moses was no dumb-bell (after all he has weaseled his way into being leader, so he sat down and wrote out what he considered to be good ‘rules of governance—the 10 Commandments. when Moses presented the commandments to them, the Israelites just laughed at him and went right on their merry way—Moses was not happy at all with that consequence. So, in disgust, he threw the tablets upon which the rules were written to the ground, breaking them—a physical consequence.

Up to the mountain he goes again. He re-writes them on new stone tablets. This time he presents them as ‘Gods Commandments’ with warnings of any breeches having ‘dire’ consequences. Officially, ‘sin’ was born.

So we fast-forward several thousand years to Jesus. By the time he came along, the Jews had utilized that ‘sin’ complex to make a triple fortune for the King, High Priest and Sanhedrin—the poor peasants were just ‘out of luck’. Jesus recognized the ‘hoax’ being perpetrated on his people as a consequence of that ‘sin complex’ abuse. Not only that, but for the first time in history, Jesus openly de-vowed the nature of the Jewish God and offered an entirely different understanding of God to his followers. Of, course he was convicted as a traitor and, as a consequence, he was killed.

Now, fast-forward again 300 years. During that hiatus, as a consequence of total lack of unanimity of understanding of who Jesus really was, what he really said, and, more importantly, what he ‘meant, literally every village had its own ‘bishop’. Not only that but, literally, each of them had different ideas about the ‘Jesus thing’. Consequently, instead of working and producing for the ruling Romans, they were bickering and fighting among themselves. As a consequence, the official Church which Constantine commissioned them to form, put themselves in total hierarchal control—the ‘Sin Police’ were recommissioned. We know the rest of the story, so lets get to the punch-line.

Sin is a manufactured process aimed at controlling the masses—since Moses’ time, it has been that way. What no one, seemingly, has understood is one, plain, simple fact—everything in this universe is perfect. Every murderer, rapist, thief, or social ‘undesirable’ of any kind is a ‘perfect consequence’ of all the consequences that went before in his/her life. God knows no ‘sin’. Everything (quanta) God created is perfect—everything in existence is the ‘perfect consequence’ of each and every stimulus applied to it from its inception. Therefore, we as rationale, civilized beings must re-orient our understanding of our Perfect Supreme Being. We must know that God, with his ‘Perfect Intelligence’ knew in advance exactly how each of us would eventuate—and through ‘no fault of our own’.

Yes, when we are hurt by someone, we consequently feel anger—a ‘normal’ human reaction. A more rational reaction would be a feeling of ‘sorrow ‘ for the offender. As a consequence of that ‘understanding’, we, as a rational society must come to grips with this reality—we, each are the direct consequence of every stimulus applied to us. Having said that, we as a society must have order and civility. Accordingly, people who breech our major societal rules ‘must be taken out of society’ until, and if, they can be ‘reprogrammed’, and made fit again. We have been, and still are, exerting our efforts in the wrong way—consequently, things are getting worse by the day.

The proper course of action stems as a consequence of proper understandings. 1-a proper understanding of the essence of our creator, and 2-a proper understanding of how our psyches are developed. The immediate consequence of lack of understanding of God’s essence is cultist religion which feigns appeasement of that God, but which, instead, creates feelings of guilt and hostility in people. All religions seem to be based on the ‘false narrative’ of that ‘humanistic God’. The direct consequence of religion is guilt and rebellion, both of which create havoc in society.

We must expend our resources in the training thousands of clinical psychologists specifically trained in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Most importantly, we must quit sending everyone on a ‘guilt-trip’ through ‘cultist religion’. We need ‘Spirituality’ which is the understanding that the ‘Spirit of God’ Is imprinted on everything and everyone. God is Perfect—God cannot possibly be hurt or pleased. God is Perfect Love (perfect acceptance). God loves everyone, criminals and all—he cannot possibly love one more than another. The consequences of that would be an ‘Imperfect God’—not possible.

I have elaborated those concepts endlessly in my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality. I implore you to read and study each for the consequences of ‘peace of mind’ and ‘peace in society’.

FAITH vs. RELIGION-PART 2–HILARY L HUNT MD

Due to a glitch in navigating WordPress yesterday, I had to cut short my comments—my apologies. Today, I will continue with my conversation about faith and how it relates to Religion.

To begin with, just what is ‘faith’? Strictly stated, faith is the acceptance of something as being true without concrete evidence of that truth. In addition, there are two basic kinds of faith, ‘implicit’ and ‘explicit’.

A common example of ‘explicit faith’ would be a warranty on a new automobile—from past experience and hearsay, we know that manufacturers typically stand good for their stated warranty. So, we are legitimate in having explicit faith that they will again.

A common example of ‘implicit’ faith is demonstrated in our willingness to believe that when we greet on an airplane, it will take us to our destination safely. We know from historical experience that commercial airline crashes in the US are rare. However, we are willing to ‘take that’ chance under the umbrella of ‘implied faith’ that all will be well.

Understandably, you may say ,’what’s that got to do with God and religion?’—and I would say ‘everything’, and here’s why. Those, among both the ancients and relative neophytes, who have concocted religions, have done so based on their version of ‘explicit faith’. In other words, God has ‘revealed’ to each of then a set of absolutes. So what then? Gradually those ‘absolutes’ demand interpretation and in that process of ‘implied faith’, a gazillion different religions have been formed (created). In truth, every human who ever existed has had a different faith and a different religion.

You may object, saying ‘I know twenty people who go to Saint ‘so and so’ Catholic church, and twenty more who go to ‘such and such’ Baptist Church, and so on and on and on. That may be absolutely true—-they go to a certain church, but no two of them have the same identical ‘faith or religion’

The reason for all that is very simple indeed—each of them knows (visualizes) a different God, because as I stated yesterday, no one before me has defined the ‘essence of God’. Therefore, not one of them knows the God about whom they think—each of those billions of gods are pure myths—they are like Santa—each similar but different, and all mythical.

It is impossible to know about any entity or concept without first defining its essence. Jesus didn’t know ‘particle physics’, but in his brilliance he recognized that the Spirit of God pervaded all existences—otherwise nothing could be. He set about to enlighten (Christ) the world about the universality and Perfect Love of God—that activity got him killed. He knew it would, but seeing himself as the ‘sacrificial lamb’, he willingly chose an ignominious death so that the world might be ‘enlightened’ (I am the light of the world) to the truth of God’s essence—Perfect Rationality.

It seems very doubtful if anyone either understood his message, or if they did understand, they were willing to accept it. Remember, The Jews killed him for treason—teaching anything contrary to the Jewish religion was treason. Guess what—the formation of so-called Christianity followed in the Jews footsteps. They set themselves up in hierarchal arrangement. I guess one might call it ‘trickle-down power. Regardless how one may perceive it, the result was/is the same—power, control, money.

So what are the implications of defining God’s essence as Perfect Rationality. Very simply, something perfect cannot be changed. Time is a measure of change. Since God is perfect he exists in eternity, a state of no change nor time. God cannot be hurt. God cannot be pleased. God cannot possibly ‘change his mind’ about anything. So all of this praying, sacrificial ritual, begging God to change his mind, etc.. could, in fact be considered blasphemous. However, God’s Perfect Love precludes any possibility of ‘retribution’ on his part.

In fact, out only justifiable prayer, while not expected by God, but to keep us humble and appreciative of his love, is a great big ‘Thank you God for your loving acceptance of me , a selfish sinner’.

So where does religion fit in? My belief; it is the most major deterrent to tranquility and peace that the world has ever known. It is also the most ‘monstrous’ money machine the world has ever known.

I mentioned my two books about these subjects yesterday. I will attempt to insert info about them.

PICTURE OF GOD-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPICTURE OF GOD–Do you know what God looks like? Have you ever seen pictures of God? If someone ask you to draw a picture of God for him/her, would you be able to do so? If you were to draw a picture either on paper or in your mind, where did that picture come from? How did you come to know what God looks like?

At first glance, you may consider all of these questions to be ‘simpleminded’ in nature. However, I suspect that, if you were to be truly introspective and honest with yourself, you’d have to admit that any and  all images of God that you may have were imprinted on your mind by pictures of God presented to you as ‘real’ during your earliest Christian indoctrination period—-I know mine are/were. Consequently, it is literally impossible to think ‘God’ without conjuring up one of those images.

Now lets examine the legitimacy of such images. In my experience, God is frequently pictured as a grizzled old man floating in semi-bust form in the clouds. Another usual presentation is that same grizzled old man in gala attire wearing a stunning crown sitting in the clouds on a brilliantly adorned throne with Jesus, in diminutive form, sitting by his right side. These are the two that stand out in my imagery. Logic demands that we, as intelligent beings, must ask ourselves the obvious question—who concocted those ideas and presented them to as a real, and for what purpose?

IMG_0082The Old Testament tells us that the Jews recognized God—they could talk to him and even bargain with him. In addition, they carried him around on their shoulders in The Arc Of The Covenant. I don’t recall the Old Testament describing what God looks like. As a matter of fact, I don’t remember any verbal description of God’s appearance in the New Testament or any later Christian writings—maybe there were some I missed. So, how did we become indoctrinated  with those images of God?

My common sense tells me the following: the Jews imagined a God patterned exactly after their own demeanor, only much more knowing and powerful—after all, he did create the entire universe. He could be loving, helpful, pleased and forgiving. Just like them, he could be displeased, hurt, angry, hateful and vengeful. So why not imagine him as a human-like person—he had all the ‘human-like’ characteristics.

It seems to me that both that identical  image and understanding of God has been perpetuated by the ‘Christian’ Church, and likely for a definite reason—they were determined to have a  humanistic relationship with God—their God could not possibly be elusive or intangible—he had to be ‘real’ in their minds. That mandate eventually became very ‘profitable’. As time went on, many paintings depicting Jesus, Mary, Joseph and many saints came to be—God had to be depicted somehow. So he was, and is, and is, and is……….

Jesus never described his Father in any way except eternal and loving. Nowhere, that I am aware of did Jesus describe God in ‘humanistic terms. Throughout the ages, great philosophers and theologians alike, recognizing the miniscule depiction of God in the Bible, determined that a ‘true’ understanding of God must be ascertained. Each, in turn, determined that the ‘essence’ of God must be defined before we could know the real  God. Each made a desperate effort at defining God’s essence—some came close—all systematically failed.

IMG_1065Why do you suppose the all failed. I think two main reasons—number one, they couldn’t abolish that image of a human-like God, and number two, they had absolutely no scientific understanding of anything in God’s creation. Had any one of them known the scientific facts of our existence, a true definition of God’s essence would very likely have been forthcoming.

The only ‘meaningful’ record we have of Jesus’ teachings about God is the Bible, and as a matter of absolute fact, we will never know exactly what Jesus said and did—so distorted and corrupted is the Bible. The earliest copy of the original writings is  a copy of a copy, of a copy made 200 or more years after the original. Since that time, dozens of different versions of the bible have appeared, each with a different twist.  Why do you suppose that is?

I believe, without doubt, there are several reasons. The original Christian (Catholic) church which emerged from the first Nicene council was fashioned by people who put ‘power’ over love. They lorded over their constituents in the most virulent and terrifying way. In the beginning, of course, they had the absolute protection of the Roman Army—their wish was the Roman Army’s command. After the fall of the Roman Empire, that protection ceased. The debauchery and simultaneous abuse by the hierarchy following Rome’s fall is well documented.

Based on this ‘humanistic’ image of God, well meaning mystics and ascetics alike began rationalizing the meaning of Jesus’ words. It has been shown by Prof. Bart Ehrman, that as Jerome translated the Bible into Latin, because of his extreme ascetism, he deliberately eliminated or change the meaning of almost every reference to anything good about women—after all, women were the ‘root of all evil’—women were evil. With the advent of the Protestant Reformation, Bibles began ‘sprouting up’ everywhere. Each ‘version’ was another man’s attempt to place Jesus’ words into a picture of his own God.

The ultimate result from all that confusing imagery is a Christian world fragmented into 33,000 or more denominations and sects, and each professing a God based on their own individual ‘imaginations’—not a single one of them knows the basic nature of God—Gods essence.

God cannot possibly be depicted rationally with a paint brush—God is supernatural and eternal. God has no body—God has no physical appearance. Teaching little children a  depiction of God in humanistic terms is ‘criminal’ in my opinion, because it leaves an indelible false image about the most important consideration of their lives. Little children soon learn that Santa is a myth.  His image will harmlessly persist in their minds forever. On the other hand, God is no myth—-he should not be presented to little children with a mythical image.

Neither I, nor anyone else can ‘paint you a picture’ of God—the invisible cannot be painted.

I can, however, and already have, irrefutably, defined for you God’s Essence— God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality translates into ‘Perfect Love’. Therefore, God cannot possibly have any human characteristics—he cannot be hurt—he cannot hate—he cannot be vengeful. He can only ‘know all’ with his perfect intellect and ‘love that all’ (will, accept, choose) with his Perfect Will. Therefore Hell, Purgatory, Limbo, Higher Places in Heaven, etc. are all myths dreamed up (imagined) by various people trying to know and understand God from a humanistic standpoint—and likely for purposes of maintaining power and control which translates into owning your pocket book.

All of that imagination has engendered  the biggest money-making racket the world has ever known under the guise of keeping your soul out of Hell—that racket is known as Religion.

My two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality say it all. You might want to investigate.

COST-Hilary L Hunt MD

r_P70491TA200411_cr_22441_FullCOST-When we think of ‘cost’, likely the first thing that comes to mind is how much money we have to pay for something—how much does it cost. However, costs come in many forms and fashions—some overt and obvious—others obscure  and/or hidden.

When gasoline was $4.00/gal, a frugal person might ‘think twice’ before jumping into a big gas-guzzling car or truck and making a frivolous trip somewhere. On the other hand, with gas at $1.22/gal, that same person might say, ‘it doesn’t cost that much, so let’s go.

For the savvy, financial costs are always a legitimate consideration. There are, lamentably, many , many other costs not always so obvious. For instance, a cigarette smoker may, unwittingly, be perfectly willing to bear the increasing dollar and cents cost of a pack of cigarettes, while ignoring the ultimate hidden costs of smoking—chronic lung disease, heart disease, renal disease, all of which are associated with chronic disability and frequent premature death—a real cost. That is to say nothing of the momentous medical costs and family distress associated with such a habit.

Look at the cost of alcoholism and drunk driving—alcoholic beverages themselves are not ‘cheap’, but their dollar cost pales in the face of the frequent anguish, injury , disease and death incurred by reckless drinking.

How about the costs of a hostile or slothful attitude—getting fired from a good job—loss of friendships. More importantly, what about the influential psychological costs imparted to your children by an absolute determined attitude of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’.

IMG_0082One could go on and on about the various consequential costs of our attitudes and activities. Seemingly, most of those consequences are either not recognized or , for what ever reason, ignored.

To me, the most discouraging consequential cost of life and living is the lack of unity among people. I can say with certainty that no two people ever have been ‘like-minded’ about an understanding of their Supreme Being (God, Buddha, Brahma, Yahweh, Allah etc.). Each person seems to have a ‘vague’ idea about their SB, but no two ideas are the same—they can’t possibly be.

And why is that, you may say. Plainly and simply, its because no one has ever defined the essence  of their deity—that is no one before me. Having no essential definition of our deity makes it %100 impossible for any two people who ever lived or who ever will live to have identical essential knowledge and understanding of their ‘God’.

So what does that have to do with ‘cost’?—everything. What that means is that each person, in turn, while earnest in his/her desire to know and understand their God, is being led down ‘the primrose path’ of religion. Religion, of course, is a cultist practice intended to ‘appease’ a hostile god who lords it over us. That  is  definitely a ‘trumped up’ attitude devised originally by divining the celestial bodies and elements fourteen thousand years ago.

Eventually, the Jews determined that it could be ‘profitable’ for a few—the King and the High Priest. That knowledge was not ‘wasted’ on Christianity. Strangely, while Jesus ‘despised’ religion, people used his name to make billions and billions, and billions—they still are. The ‘costs’ of religion are staggering. Furthermore, the financial costs pale in the face of the psychological costs of guilt, anxiety and depression caused by religion.

They learned centuries ago that the ‘sure-fire’ way of getting your pocketbook was to shame  you into  ‘buying your way into heaven’—neither have they ever forgotten that trick. It certainly didn’t start with ‘the widows might’—neither did it stop there. They would, in fact, take your very last copper cent under the ‘guise’ of pleasing God.

IMG_1065So how do we ever correct that evil and ‘eliminate that terrible oppressive cost’? I can assure you, there is only one absolute and mandatory method—we must all become like-minded   in our understanding of God’s essence. We must abandon the mythology and superstition thrown at us for ages and ages.

I have defined God’s essence once and for all— God is a Prefect Rational Being. That perfection translates into ‘Perfect Love”— perfect Love means God accepts us the way we are—there is absolutely nothing we can do to enhance that love of God for us.

God’s Love costs us absolutely nothing—it is an unbelievable ‘gift‘.

All is spelled out succinctly and precisely in my two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality.

PUZZLE-Hilary L Hunt MD

r_P70491TA200411_cr_22441_FullPUZZLE- Now here’s one for you—are you ever puzzled about anything? Just what is a puzzle anyway? I suspect we all have been exposed to crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles. Additionally. I suspect we all have been ‘puzzled’ by many events, ideas and/or philosophies we’ve encountered in our lives.

Strictly speaking, a puzzle is a game or problem that tests our ingenuity, brainpower and knowledge. Some puzzles are a ‘fun’ challenge to solve—many create consternation—others seem unsolvable. We may frequently experience confusion and/or frustration at our ineptness.

Likely, nowhere is that confusion and frustration more obvious than that experienced by the average ‘joe’ in attempting to solve the puzzle of irrational ‘religion’ and/or philosophy/ideology. In my particular case, it began at a very early age, seven. It grew by ‘leaps and bounds’ and by age thirteen, I was convinced that I had been presented with a puzzle of ‘monumental proportions’ which demanded solution. That ‘solution’ tested both my knowledge and determination for years. Finally, after roughly sixty years, and by the most unlikely circumstances, the solution to my puzzlement became clear.

And you might ask just what my puzzlement was about—and I would answer, ‘multiple considerations’ all, of which stem from lack of understanding of the nature (essence) of our God (Supreme Being, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Brahma etc.) Most of those puzzlements concerned my relationship with God, eternity, heaven, hell, purgatory, my soul, Trinity, prayer and mysteries—putting all of those considerations in a basket and shaking them up created one grant puzzle for me while at the same time creating unbelievable confusion, frustration and consternation.

However, no matter how impossible the task seemed to be, my determination persisted. Luckily, my knowledge base expanded exponentially when I had the good fortune to ‘stumble onto’ the science of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics). That subject involves an evolutionary process of discerning, discovering , defining and observing the nature of the tiniest particles of energy which make up everything in existence—God.

IMG_0082For those who may not know, a quantum is the smallest particle of energy in existence which cannot be farther subdivided. There are, in fact, several varieties of these particles. Each has been given a name such as photon, electron, boson, etc. It is of particular interest to note that each is identical to and indistinguishable from its counterparts. Furthermore, each is ‘perfect in both form and function’—never changing nor changeable.

So, what are the implications of something that is perfect and both never changing nor changeable? Is that not exactly what eternity is—a state of being with no beginning nor end in which change (time)  of any kind is impossible? Wow!!!!—the ‘lights came on’—my puzzle was solved.

Suddenly, I ‘knew’ who God is. I could and did actually ‘define God’s essence’. God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality means that with its Perfect Intellect, It envisioned each and every particle of energy, all of which ‘mirror’ him. Of course, he loves himself and his own image—he cannot possibly reject something perfect. So, with his Perfect Will, he chooses, loves, accepts his image in perpetuity. Bingo—the ‘mystery’ of the Trinity solved—-one major piece of the puzzle conquered.

Suddenly, a completely new philosophy and understanding of everything was at hand. All organized religion was fallacious, since all were based on ‘false premises’.

God is Perfect, so his love is perfect. Therefore he cannot possibly reject himself. Since his image is imprinted onto each particle that makes up our being, we are him—as is every other gravid object in existence.

So, what are the implications? There are many, and each refutes concepts of humanistic religions. God’s Perfect love precludes any possibility of Hell, Purgatory, Limbo. Heaven (eternity) is a state of being of perfect happiness and Joy in God, not a place where everyone in running around meeting and greeting each other (a human concept). Therefore, there are no ‘higher places’ in heaven (a human concept). God is our ‘soul’—without God we have no soul—we have no existence. Prayer is a total waste (misplacement) of understanding of God—Begging God to change his nature and perform ‘miracles’ for us is really blasphemous—our only ‘justifiable’ prayer is ‘thank you God’. Thanksgiving is the meaning of the word Eucharist. Miracles are an impossibility—God cannot possibly ‘change’ his Perfect Nature—God can be neither ‘pleased’ nor ‘displeased’—God is all Love.

IMG_1065You may ask about Jesus—how does he fit into the picture? And, as I have explained many times before, I accept that Jesus was a true genius who saw exactly what I see—he didn’t have benefit of Quantum Mechanics. He recognized that God had created a 100% evil (selfish) world. He reasoned that since God had created an evil universe, he must make retribution by dying—thereby showing his ‘Perfect Love’. Jesus knew that God resided in him—he and everything in existence were ‘mirror images’ of God. Since he was the only one to know that, he saw himself as the ‘sacrificial lamb of God’. Willingly, but with great fear and trepidation, he accepted the fate—God’s Perfect Love was exposed.

So what about the ‘Last Supper’—what was Jesus saying to his apostles for the forty millionth and last time? He was attempting to instill an understanding that God is in all things including him and them as well as that bread and wine they were eating—we’ll never know whether or not he was successful—so distorted and corrupted is the bible. We have an inkling that maybe John did. In his letter he states ‘brothers, what we are now, we know we are children of God; what we are to become is to be determined. We do know that when we get to heaven we will be like God because we will see him as he truly is’ (paraphrased). Quite obviously, no one could see God as he ‘truly is’ except God himself—so, John seemed to recognize and understand what Jesus had been telling them.

So what about the word communion—some religions speak of Holy Communion. Yes it is communion and yes it is Holy Communion because it represents the commonality we all share—we all are imbued with the Holy Commonality of God’s presence in us—and everything else, I might add.

Now here is a concept which is somewhat staggering to me. Just for one moment consider this. We and every gravid object in existence are continually changing and evil (selfish). Therefore, we exist in a temporal (finite) world—we ,as everything else, will cease to exist some day. However, everything that makes our being is the prefect, unchanging particles of God’s energy which already exist in eternity—isn’t that amazing? Does that tickle your brain about your soul? God is your soul—he cannot possibly reject himself.

Most religion of any kind or fashion of which I am aware, while maybe in some instances well intentioned, is man-made, fashioned after human values of selfish control and greed, and more importantly based on false premises and ignorance. Buddhism and Hinduism seem, for the most part, to be different in that they are more contemplative—they are still trying to discern the exact nature of their Supreme Being. It would be helpful for them to study Quantum Mechanics.

I could go on and on about these subjects but I suspect you’d get bored. However I have developed this philosophy and carried it to its ultimate conclusion of a certain pathway to permanent ‘loving peace’.  My two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality say it all in clear, concise terms. I sincerely trust that you will avail yourself of them—-Amazon et.al.

PLAGUE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPLAGUE-This word is derived from the Greek word plaga which means  strike  and the Latin word plaga which means stroke or wound. In everyday usage it carries the implication of some disease or condition which annoys , aggravates or impedes us as individuals, family groups, communities, cities, or nations.

For instance, we may hear someone say that she has been ‘plagued’ by migraine headaches all her life. Or we may observe that a family seems to be plagued by chronic poverty. On a larger scale, a community may have been ‘plagued for years’ by a very poor water supply. In modern times it seems that certain cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and others in the US are ‘plagued’ by homelessness and filth—Chicago is ‘plagued’ with gun violence.

In the fourteenth century a disease caused by a rat borne bacterium known simply as the ‘Plague” wiped out millions of people in Europe, Middle East and North Africa. The ‘great potato famine’ in the mid 1800’s killed nearly half the population of Ireland—they simply starved to death. The Plague of 541 killed 10.000/day in Constantinople—it was caused by the same rat-borne organism as the Back Death in Europe centuries later. The Old testament speaks of ‘Plagues and Pestilence’.

There have been several other major ‘Plagues’ in Europe and elsewhere, The general idea is that a plague is something that strikes without warning and severely wounds and/or aggravates.

IMG_0082Currently, the entire earth is in the throes of a devastating pandemic ‘plague’ caused by the Covid-19 virus. It certainly seems to have struck an unsuspecting and ill-prepared humanity with virulence and vehemence—and it rages on. It has killed millions worldwide and will kill millions more before it runs it course—likely, it will be back. Hopefully, we will be better prepared the next time.

There is one ‘plague’ which has beset the human race on an unrelenting, persistent course since the beginning of recorded history. Anyone who has the meagerest familiarity with world history knows that eternal strife  among mankind has been perpetuated by one source— religion. There is no way I have of knowing the exact number of deaths caused by ‘religious wars’. However, because of their persistent occurrence, it is safe to say that the war-tally would at least equal the plague-tally. The United States alone has lost nearly three million soldiers in its wars—a span of a measly 250 years.

Many wars have been generated by the godless trying to defeat the godly. Some notable examples are Fascism, Communism and some forms of Socialism. In general, these ideologies are anti-religion—-a religion in reverse.

The Jewish people have been embroiled in some form of strife and conflict ever since their exodus from Egypt. During the last fourteen hundred to two thousand years, the three Abrahamic religions have been in constant turmoil among themselves. In addition,  intrareligious hatred and rancor have perpetuated unrelenting upheaval.

During my 86 years, I have not known of a single day of prefect peace. The hatred, fighting and killing continues at a torrid pace, and why?—religion. Everyone’s god has mandated a vendetta against their neighbor’s god. In Christianity alone, we have 33,000 different gods and guess what—not a single one of them is willing to ‘give an inch’ to the other. So, they are not ‘overtly’ fighting right now, but they have in the past—I’ll guarantee you that, given the opportunity, they would again. Basically, they are a like a pit full of venomous snakes banded together for purposed of self defense against an intruder—I wont bite you if you wont bite me. They have a larger ‘common enemy’—hostile Islam and Communism. Just let those two common enemies disappear and see what happens—all hell would break out among Christians just as it was when Constantine called the first council of Nicaea, and the ‘all powerful Catholic Church was formed.

Hopefully, in this ‘civilized world’ that would be an overstatement, but no guarantees. Human nature dictates that each person wants every other person to think the same way, and if they don’t, there’s an undercurrent of aggravation—even under the best of circumstances. If that undercurrent ‘boils over’, as it frequently does, then overt hostility, either verbal or physical, breaks out—such is our selfish nature.

So how do we overcome such adversity and eliminate this most major plague—the answer is simple, its application complicated—we must all have the same God.

That may sound like a ‘foolish’ suggestion—everyone knows who God is—or do they? If you cannot define the essence of your God, then you have no God—you have a myth. Guess what—everyone’s myth is different just like ever child’s Santa is different.

How then do we all have the same God? The exact same way we all have the same pencil, or brick or toothbrush—we can define their essences.

IMG_1065Take note of this—no one before me has ever defined the essence of God. I did it with six simple little words so full of astounding meaning—God is a Perfect Rational Being. I was able to conclude that essential definition by virtue of my encounter with Quantum Mechanics (particle physics) wherein I learnrd the most basic identical and perfect nature of all physical existence. That perfect rationality pervades everything in existence. More importantly, it refutes and  eliminates the Biblical mythology associated with God. It defines clearly the Trinity nature of God. It shows the absolute necessity of Jesus’s heroic sacrifice by which we all are saved. It shows with absolute certainty God’s perfect love which precludes any possibility of Hell, Purgatory, Limbo or Heaven as a place with seats closer to God. It shows without imagination that heaven is an eternal state of being in oneness with God— a state of perfection which supersedes any human happiness.

In my book, Wilderness Cry, I define the essence of God and outline its implications. In my sequel, Peace in Spirituality, I show the absolute only way that peace may ever be achieved—we must all be likeminded. The only way that can happen is for everyone to have the same God—adherence to present-day religions makes that absolutely impossible.

We must all become likeminded so that the terrible plague of war  may be eliminated and peace will prevail.

  I encourage you to read and study my books so you may have a clear understanding.

DOOMSDAY-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngDOOMSDAY-The Covid-19 episode has prompted me to explore the concept of doomsday from a scientific and philosophical viewpoint. During the last thirty to forty years of recent memory, I suspect I have heard suggestions of imminent doomsday hundreds, maybe thousands of times. Each and every natural disaster has brought the Armageddon predictors out of hiding a-likened to termites swarming out of a piece of rotten wood.

Just who are these soothsayers anyhow? In my experience they are always preachers who cling to each and every word of the bible, both Old and New Testaments. So what prompts those predictions made with such absolute certainty and  directly  in the face of total erroneousness of all such previous predictions? My observations tell me the prompts are twofold—a brainwashed audience and a cunning predictor.

IMG_0082I remember well several years ago, our local schools were closed on a certain day because someone had predicted a major earthquake along the New Madrid Fault line—such was the certainty of the prediction. Even I considered there was nothing to lose by clamping a vise-grip tool onto the turn-off valve of the natural gas supply to my house—its still there—may come in handy some day, but not by prediction. Of course, no earthquake occurred—everyone was so relieved. As I recall, he wasn’t even a preacher—a real soothsayer who was ‘super-believable’ however. Nostradamus was ‘alive and well’ at that time.

So why should millions of people have the wits scared out of them because of the prediction of some idiot with no scientific data. Unless you just crawled from under a rock, everyone who lives along the New Madrid Fault is keenly aware of the major quakes of 1811-12 which, in addition to changing dramatically the flow-path of the Mississippi river, also formed Reelfoot Lake in northwest Tennessee, and Murphy’s Pond in northeast Hickman county , Kentucky. Scientists tell us, that the likelihood of another major quake(s) is a certainty, the exact date cannot be predicted—not as of now, at least.

So what gives most of those prognosticators the belief that they are interpreting world events in appropriate terms?—the ‘absolute certainty’ of God’s inerrant word, the Bible, of course.

Now let’s examine that philosophy from just ‘simpleminded logic’. If the Bible truly is the absolute inerrant word of God, then how can all those predictions be wrong? The answer to that very simple question, I believe, has a very simple answer. Either God is stupid and ignorant and doesn’t know what he’s doing or saying, or the biblical interpreters are ignorant and stupid and don’t ‘have a clue’—far be it from me to call God stupid and ignorant. You are now free to decide which it is—I’ve already decided.

IMG_1065All one has to do is investigate a teensy-weensy bit to understand that the bible was written, rearranged and rewritten dozens, maybe hundreds of times by people who ‘had an axe to grind’. They were all astrologers at heart—the celestial bodies controlled everything—even the ‘star of Bethlehem’ led the astrologers (magi, wise men) to King Herod in search of baby Jesus. That made a great story for those who knew that the ‘earth was flat’, who knew that the earth was the ‘center of the universe, who knew that God was a grizzled old man sitting in the clouds ready and willing to ‘crack the whip’ on anybody or anything that crossed him. They had absolutely no idea of science which is knowledge, which is truth.

But that didn’t stop the money-changers—the fleecing must go on and ‘go on’  it did and does. Jesus tried to stop it—he was a ‘total failure’—they hung him on a tree—and the fleecing beat goes on, and on, and on.

All of that ‘fleecing’ comes in the form of religion.

So what is the truth? Knowledgeable scientists tell us that habitability of earth will likely cease in ten million years—that, of course, assumes that mankind doesn’t kill everything before then. The earth itself will come to a planetary demise in about 7.5 billion years when it is adsorbed by an ever expanding sun (red giant). In the meantime, natural disasters of all sorts and kinds will occur—any one of them could potentially ‘wipe out life on earth’ but not likely and certainly not as the result of any prediction from the bible.

Guess who is continually making those predictions and interpretations—the ‘money-changers, of course. Some of them even fall into the category of snake-handlers—you be the judge.

If you’d like a more complete explanation of these and many, many, more points, you might try reading my two little books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality.

EASTER-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngESATER-What a glorious day—so most of us have been taught to think and believe. So, what’s so glorious about Easter? If someone ask you to explain the significance of Easter, what would you tell them?—would you have a definitive answer? I truly would like to hear a few of those answers.

I can hear the ‘thundering multitude’ responding in resounding unison even as I type—‘Easter is the day Jesus rose from the dead’. And I say, ‘so what, what does that mean?. What does that have to do with anything?’ Have you ever asked yourself that question?—what did Jesus’ resurrection mean to you? Oh you probably have been told by your preachers and/or bible school teachers that Jesus’ resurrection carried ‘great significance’—but can you explain the significance? I can’t. The point is, in physical terms,Jesus’ so-called resurrection is a myth, and here is why.

The Jews were so imbued with the idea that when the long-awaited Messiah finally would appear  he would immediately restore an earthly paradise just for them. When Jesus finally appeared after hundreds of years of long-suffered waiting, the selfish Jews were impatient—-they wanted paradise ‘now’. Jesus, however , perceived a giant load of work to be done—the Jews thought process had to be changed dramatically. They had learned a philosophy of a punitive God who could love them one minute and viciously turn on them the  very next second—such was the schizophrenic nature of their ‘one true God’.

IMG_0082When Jesus began speaking and teaching of an ‘all loving God’, the Jews mind-set just was not ready nor capable of accepting such a philosophy. Jesus was quite aware of their attitude—he recognized that his task was severe, but he accepted the challenge. Knowing full well that his message would not be well accepted by the Jewish hierarchy, Jesus stayed in the shadows trying desperately to educate his apostles and followers to his ‘new commandments of love’—God and neighbor. It seems very doubtful that he ever succeeded—-We’ll never know.

After three plus years, Jesus could see plainly that he was getting ‘nowhere’ (so it seems from the writings we have); he grew impatient; he knew the task at hand. So, he marches off to the seat of corruption and evil, Jerusalem. He had come to the stark realization that he was the messiah, ‘the chosen one’, the Christ who was to die for the amelioration of all the evil in the universe. Parenthetically, I might add Jesus name was Jesus, the Christ; not Jesus Christ—there’s a momentous difference in both meaning and understanding.

He was steadfast and firm in his conviction—his glib followers were seemingly like half-witted nitwits. They didn’t have a clue—at least that’s what the ‘book’ we have says—who really knows? When Jesus deliberately confronted the Jewish hierarchy with their cunning and chicanery and open-faced thievery in the name of God, it was more than they could take—he had to go. Of course, that was the ‘Devine plan’ all along. Jesus just used the cunning Jews as an instrument of execution.

So, they killed him—they hung him ignominiously on a tree for all the world to see—see what happens to traitors!

IMG_1065But what about the ‘Resurrection’?—Jesus had told his followers he ‘first had to die’. In their greed and exclusionary demeanor, they had to have a recreation of Paradise and they had to have it now. They could see plainly that Jesus was dead—-he had to come right back to finish the job. That meant he had to ‘raise from the dead’ and ‘ascend into heaven’—the ‘second coming ‘ was both mandatory and immanent. Therein lies Paul’s injunction to his followers to ‘abandon their usual lifestyles of marriage, family, children, etc.; put on a holy face and prepare for Jesus immanent return—maybe tomorrow’ (paraphrased).

Well, its been roughly two thousand years—Paul has been dead nineteen hundred and fifty years and no second coning yet. Guess what, ‘it ain’t happening’. Its a myth dreamed up by the selfish Jews and perpetuated by every religion I have personally known of; and for why? Power, money, control.

Have you ever felt somebody’s hand in you pocket?—hold on to your pocketbook. Have you ever noticed how each of the 33,000 so-called Christian religions claim forthrightly to be ‘the only correct one’?—I have. Have you ever noticed how a new church with a ‘new slant’ on Jesus and his ‘word’ springs up on literally every street corner annually?—I have. Have you ever wondered why that is? I have—money, power, control.

So, if I ask you the significance of Easter, what would you say?

JESUS DIES-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJESUS DIES—Here we go again. If I were to ask a thousand so-called Christian people why Jesus died, I suspect I’d get a conglomerate of answers. Some answers would likely be straight forward and certain but many would be vague and/or confused or even contradictory.

One category would tell me with absolute certainty and authority that Jesus Died to save us from our sins and guarantee our entry into heaven. That same group might hastily add that the more good we do, the  higher place in heaven we get.

Another group might say that Jesus died so that  our sins might be forgiven but not guaranteed—-we must pray, beg and plead with God in every way possible which might included all sorts of self-sacrifices, personal bodily torment and good works. In addition they would suggest a heavy reliance on the supplication of the Church and the saints already in heaven on our behalf. However, in spite of all that, the likelihood is we’d be required to spend considerable time in purgatory burning away the stain of sin from our soul before entry into heaven would be allowed.

A third group would tell me forthrightly that Jesus died so he could go to heaven and then come back some day and  pronounce judgement on everyone—the good ones he would welcome with open arms into the  new paradise  he just created—the bad ones would be cast in the fires of hell for all eternity.

IMG_0082Then there is a fourth group who would tell me Jesus died because the Jews didn’t like him—he was a traitor—he was teaching heresy. So, he got the treatment all traitors got—death by crucifixion.  The world was full of zealots in Jesus’ time—they all got the same treatment.

Then there would be a significant number who would offer some sort of mixture of the above ideas.

Having said all that, all I wanted was just one of them to ask me ‘why Jesus died’—I was jest itching for a chance to tell them what I thought.

You see, my God is a Perfect Rational Being. He exists in eternity, a state of being in which no time nor change is possible. Therefore, heaven must be a state of being—no higher nor lower places. In addition, Jesus recognized that he, we, and everything in existence was a ‘mirror image’ of its creator’. Jesus could clearly see that everything in existence was selfish—God made it to be that way so he could show his ‘perfect love’ through his own sacrificial death in the person of his image, Jesus. Therefore, Our salvation is guaranteed—God’s perfect love cannot possibly reject himself. The idea of a second coming, new paradise here on earth, purgatory and hell are all impossible.

Likewise a physical resurrection is impossible—God would have to change his nature and that is impossible.

IMG_1065What did happen is this—through his teaching and death, Jesus ‘turned on the lights of God’s truth and love’. He became the Christ—the light of the universe. He demonstrated for all to see the perfect love of God.

Ask yourself one simple question—did Jesus save you by his sacrificial death?—or did Jesus save you by his resurrection? From my perspective, any resurrection would be meaningless without the sacrificial death.

Again I am renewing my call for The World-wide Communion of Spirituality.
