God’s Love for each of us is immeasurable. You might question that since we see so many terrible commits world wide daily. If we understand that God has Perfect Love, then we must admit that it is impossible for God to have disdain for anyone he has allowed to be created. Perfect Love means “acceptance without conditions”. Please do not let anyone, preacher or otherwise tell you that you are evil in God’s eye. You may be evil in the eyes of the world but never to God—you are his child and he can do nothing but Love you as he does everything in creation. Jesus told us that in no uncertain terms—he never condemned anyone. The bible we have now has been so corrupted by those who didn’t want to hear Jesus’ message—they didn’t want an all loving God—they insisted on an Old Testament God, dreamed up by the Israelites, who was morose and vengeful. That God served their purpose exactly—it kept them in control of our lives. They killed Jesus for teaching otherwise—he was a traitor and a treasonists. So he got the treatment all traitors got—crucifixion. Jesus knew it was to be his fate, but he wanted to get his message out before he died. We have no clear-cut evidence that his illiterate apostles understood and accepted his teachings. We do know for a fact that the bibles we have now have been corrupted by individual zealots who have altered it to their liking over and over again—all for power, money and control. In the first place every bible in existence stemmed from a single copy made from many altered copies 200-300 after the original writing. Biblical scholars have shown conclusively that only % 30 of the writings we have now were actually written by the titled author. In addition, Jerome’s translation of the Greek into the Roman Vulgate was changed dramatically. He became a hermit of the utmost kind—he despised the female sex. He had four or five women with him but he made them dress as men and stay filthy dirty and deshelled. He scolded one of his women for weeping over the death of her child saying she should be glad—she would have more time to devote to prayer. In his translation to the Vulgate, each time a woman was referenced favorably, he changed it to a negative connotation—such was his disdain of female sex. The truth is, there were 10 commandments, but the only sins concerned the sex commandments. So each translator of the bible, has added his own slant so that now we have dozens of bibles with differing language subject to differing interpretations. All of that, of course, was designed to suit the imagination of the writer who had an “axe to grind” with the establishment. However, the end result was always the same—a different sect hammering out “power, money, control”. The net effect is we now have as of 2014, 33,000 so called Christian religions—and each one of them claiming the exclusive right for control of our souls. I would suggest to you, its more about controlling your “pocket book”. I’ll guarantee you one thing, if the money flow dried up, your soul could “go to hell”. Your preacher would vanish like a ghost in the night. The writer Paul is the only writer who echoes Jesus sentiments, but even he was terribly confused. He was told by the people he was persecuting that Jesus was coming right back—of course that was the Jew’s expectation—they thought the earth , paradise, and all was just for them—does it get any more selfish than that?—to hell with the other billions of people. It’s been nearly 2000 years and no second coming—I’m here to tell you, there never will be. Jesus’ “second coming” will be in the recognition by all that the spirit of God is imprinted on every particle of energy which makes up everything in this universe(s). When we come to that recognition, then we will feel and know the true love of a perfect God—God cannot possibly hate—he is Perfect Love. We are the haters—we are the ones trying to take advantage of each other—we are the ones looking at each other with glaring, jaundiced eyes—we are the ones who “lack love”.—our dear God is all love. For full elucidation of the above, please read Wilderness Cry—Covenant Book.
God: What an explosive word! Do you believe in a God and if so, why? If you don’t believe in God (atheist), why not? If you are a believer, and you are discussing God with your neighbor who also is a believer, how would the two of you communicate your God to each other? Would the two of you be discussing the same entity, or would each of you be using the same word with different understandings of that word? That is the likely scenario. And you might ask why I would make such an outlandish statement. My reason is very clear. I am as certain as can be that neither of you can define your God. You may have a vague idea, based on Old Testament Biblical descriptions, of a Grizzled old man sitting on a throne, or perhaps, disguised, all but His bust, by a cloud. This old dude is eternally stern-browed, perpetually unhappy with you and the entire world. Seemingly, there is no way to appease Him except through strict ritualistic practices associated with sacrifices of one kind or another, known as religion. You are never assured that your feeble attempts at appeasement are successful, so you live in constant fear of eternal damnation. Seemingly, both you and your neighbor are talking about the same entity. However, on closer analysis, we discover that neither of you knows the other’s God. The reason is obvious, because one of you is Roman Catholic and the other is Southern Baptist. And to top it all off, along comes two more neighbors to join in the conversation—one is Mormon and the other is Lutheran. None of the four of you are in any agreement at all about the necessity for appeasement nor how it is to be done. Before you know it, another neighbor who is atheist joins the foray, and, of course, she disagrees with you all. She says determinedly that there is no way that a grizzled old man could manufacture and maintain our universe all the while fighting the forces of the nether-world. Visibly, it is very clear and certain that no two individuals in the universe worship the same entity. And why do you suppose that is? The reason is extremely simple; no one until now has ever defined the “essence” of our Supreme Being. Without that necessary, absolute definition, common understanding is absolutely impossible. There can be no single-mindedness. That condition has created the eternal hostile morass the world has experienced since the inception of recorded history.
Recognizing the above described discord and disorder prompted me to seek a solution to the problem. It became readily clear to me that all the problems have been created by the singular lack of definition of the “essence” of our Divine Creator. Essence is that quality which makes any entity what it basically is. Absent an essential definition, we cannot possibly communicate rationally about anything. Therefore, I was compelled to Define The Essence God. That I did with six simple, irrefutable words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition brings God’s essential nature into the realm of clear understanding for everyone. Allow me to explain: When we say God, we acclaim Its existence; when we say Is, we accept that It is always in the present; when we say A, we recognize that there is no other (singular, but triune); when we say Perfect, we mean that It is whole and complete–It cannot possibly be changed, because any change would negate Its perfection; when we say Rational, we recognize the two qualities of rationality, an intellect which perceives, and a will which achieves; when we say Being, we recognize that It exists. Notice, I use the word It to describe God–the reason is simple–God has no gender. If It did have gender, then It would be fertile, generating all sorts of imaginary mates and offspring.
Using the above definition of God’s Presence allows each of us to arrive at a similar, complete understanding of the nature of our Supreme Being—we all would be like-minded. There is no room for debate. Philosophically, all understanding is unified. I believe that with this essential definition, most atheists would come on board, recognizing the sound philosophical approach. We could make many observations contrary to current beliefs and practices. Just a few for now: To your astonishment, miracles are impossible; a miracle would require a change in God’s nature–remember God’s perfection negates any possibility of change. God can be neither pleased nor displeased—either of these entities would indicate a deficiency in God’s perfection–an impossibility. The concept of Hell is irrational–God is Perfect Love which means It accepts us the way we are regardless–any rejection would negate God’s perfection. All the begging and pleading (prayers of petition) are irrational and selfish because, again, we are asking selfishly for God to change Its nature just for the selfish, egotistical “us”. All religion is irrational because it fails to recognize God’s perfection–it is, however, extremely self-serving, ever grasping for more power, money and control of our lives–and , in doing so, creating eternal discord on our earth. Our only justifiable, but not necessary, prayer is “Thank You Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will Of God). Amen.
I would strongly urge each of you to think on the above concepts and see how they apply to you and your understanding, or lack thereof, of your God. In addition I would strongly urge you to read, if you have not already, my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry; Amazon, Kindle ET. Al.
One more thought. Have you come to grips with the obvious concept that only one Supreme Being is possible. that means that every named Deity (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc) are all one and the same; a rose by any other name is still a rose. When the world comes to the above “like-mindedness”, peace will prevail—until then the turmoil beat goes on. H.L.H.
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.

BIBLE: The most sold book(s) in the universe, in my opinion, represents the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the human race. I can hear the horror shrieks now— how can you possibly say that? Very simply, anyone who takes even a cursory look at our human history will readily recognize that religion has been, and still is, the single cause of all strife in our existence. Religion, of course, is a cultist practice based on some false belief(s). So, where is the falsity in the bible. The number one problem with the bible is the depiction of our Creator and Supreme Being as some grizzled old man, hostile and irate, gloriously robed and crowned, sitting on a magnificent throne. He is capable of turning on you in a flash, and condemning you to hell forever on a whelm. Seemingly, He is never happy, because His happiness comes from our perfection. Since it is impossible for any human to be perfect, God is in a constant state of wrath: simultaneously, He has six to eight billion offenders on His hand continuously. As I personally matured both physically and educationally, my awareness of God’s dilemma and ours deepened. I could readily see the paradox with both we and God being in the “hot box” continuously. Gradually it occurred that there must be a problem with the original construct. As I studied and reasoned, it became ever so clear to me that the ancient biblical description of God as imagined by the Hebrews was totally false and nonsensical. Understandably, with no scientific knowledge of or about the universe, they could only imagine what an undeveloped intellect would allow; that being a child-like imagination of God. They ascribed all their failures and difficulties to a vengeful God reacting to their transgressions, and, simultaneously, any good events in their lives were justified by their selfish egos that some had “pleased” God more-so than others. So the Old Testament evolved. Then along comes Jesus—so many, many conflicting stories about His life, activities, and words have been written, rewritten and changed through the centuries since His life here on earth. Renowned professor of Bible at UNC, Bart Ehrman, proclaims that all versions of the New testament are contaminated, but the most contaminated of all is the King James Version which is used by most Protestant churches and preachers. It occurred to me that the basic problem with all religions of any kind was the minuscule ideation ascribe to our Creator. Furthermore, everyone from time immortal has talked about God, but not a single individual has ever defined Its essence. Nowhere in the bible is there an attempt. In the 1300’s, Meister Eckhart, A Dominican Friar, theologian, and philosopher, seemingly, spent his entire adult life wrestling with such a definition. However, because of his total lack of science, he lacked the sufficient background. To his credit, he recognized the terrible mistake made by religion in portraying God as it did. Alikened to Galileo, he was to be brought before the Inquisition, but he died before he could be shamed. Thankfully, there is no Inquisition, as such, meaning burning at the stake is illegal nowadays. With that in mind, I became more determined than ever to “discover” the Essence Of Our Supreme Being (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc). That I did in no uncertain nor irrefutable terms. I defined our Creator thus: GOD (Etc.) IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. -PERFECT, OF COURSE, MEANS IT CANNOT BE CHANGED— IT CANT BE HURT, HELPED, PLEASED, DISPLEASED, ETC. With that understanding, we can readily see that God is “Perfect Love” which means It accepts everything in ITS domain without condition. That concept completely negates any concept of Hell, Purgatory and the likes. It also negates any concept of Heaven being a Place. It readily demands a concept of Heaven as a “state of being, one with God”. So, I have utmost problems with the bible and with religions in general. My Concept of the essence of God demands that the image (Will-Holy Spirit) of God is imprinted on every tiniest particle of energy (quantum) which make up everything in existence. As such, everything in existence is united in that Spirit. Therefore, I have repeatedly called for recognition and acceptance of “The World-Wide Communion Of Spirituality” among all peoples. It is our ONLY path to genuine peace. I have elucidated this philosophy in great detail in my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry. I would strongly urge each of you to read it.

JUXTAPOSE: Very likely, everyone, except the most isolated, sees the terrible morass of discord into which the entire world is embroiled. That disharmony has been prompted from ancient times on by differing concepts of a god (Supreme Being–SB for short). The major religions of the world have ascribed varying attributes to their SB, including a name. Not one of them has ever defined the ESSENCE of their SB. For that reason alone, true juxtaposition, with ensuing peace, cannot occur. I became aware of that immense problem by age thirteen, but had not a clue as to its solution. As time went on, that keen awareness and wonderment prompted me to engage in a major, major research project. I simply had to discover a solution. Information was scantly available, buried in encyclopedias and obscure documents. With the advent of the PC, suddenly information was at the tip of a cursor. During the preceding decades, the basic problem became crystal clear; no one had ever defined the Essence of a SB— that was the basic task at hand. It finally occurred to me that there can be only one SB, and consequently, all are worshiping the same entity—just calling It by different names (a rose by any other name is still a rose). Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, etc.—all worshiping the same SB and not one of them recognizing that fact. They all thought they were worshiping a different being. That recognition forced me to define the essence of our universal SB. I did so thusly—OUR SUPREME BEING IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. That definition solved the puzzle—explained all the mysteries—eliminated all guilt—guaranteed salvation of the entire universe through the death of Jesus. More importantly it made and mandates juxtaposition of every human’s image of the same SB. It mandates recognition that the image of our Creator (SB) is indelibly imprinted on each of us by virtue of the Holy Spirit (God’s Will). Nothing could possibly exist without it being willed by the Spirit (Will) of its Creator (SB). With that understanding and acceptance, we can readily see that all peoples are brothers and sisters—we are duty bound to love (accept) each other as ourselves. That understanding prompted me some time ago to call for recognition and acceptance of THE WORLD WIDE COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY. That acceptance allows each of us to comfortably juxtapose ourselves, even with our accidental differences, likened to stacking sheets of paper in a bin—the only way to peace and harmony. My little book, Wilderness Cry explains in minute detail and easy language every aspect of our existence in irrefutable terms–without doubt, you would be immeasurably enlightened in its reading: Amazon, Kindle, et al .

Very likely, few of us have escaped the shroud of “Guilt” pulled over us all by organized religion. I have defined the “essence” of our Supreme being as “A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING”. With that understanding, it is impossible for our SB to be “merciful”. A “Perfect Rational Being is “Perfect Love” which means acceptance without conditions. Perfect Love has no quarter with mercy. Perfect Love implies no guilt; mercy always implies guilt. So Love and mercy are conflicting ideas. With Its Perfect Intellect, our SB envisioned every tiniest quantum of energy which makes up everything on our universe. With Its Perfect Will (Holy Spirit), It obtained and maintains each perfectly. Each is and has always performed perfectly. In doing so, they have generated an entire universe which is absolutely perfect in form and function, while simultaneously being % 100 evil by virtue of its universal selfishness. There is absolutely nothing in material existence that doesn’t have “needs”. Needs, of course, demand “self attention” with resultant change. Now since Time is a measure of Change, the universe, in its entirety, exists in a constant state of selfishness (change). Our SB made the universe(s) to be that way (selfishness=evil) so that It may be “Perfect Love”. How is that, you say? Jesus, likely the most brilliant and humble human to ever exist, recognized that need. He also recognized that his Spirit, Soul, Existence Giver, mirrored the Spirit (Will) of Its generator (The Holy Spirit-Will of God). He also understood the universality of selfishness and with that understanding, He could see clearly that no one is truly responsible for being the “person they are”. He understood the trillions of different life’s experiences each of us have that shape our attitudes and understandings. Therefore, nowhere in the Bible does Jesus condemn anyone for anything. He was “All Love” (acceptance). In fact He gave us two only commands by which to live’ love your God with your all and love (accept) your neighbor as your equal. He understood that, since He was the only human to ever recognize those principles, He had to be the Messiah. He (the mirror image of Its generator, which we call God) had to die in order to “pay the price” of perfect love. By accepting that role, He was aware that He was accepting all the iniquity ever to exist. Thereby, the SB became Perfect Love. There is absolutely no room for the concept of “mercy” in this equation.
Afterthought: consider this; if the universe were not selfish (evil), there would be no “need”; with no need, there would be no “change”; with no change, there would be no “time”; of course, with no time, there would be only Eternity ; all existences would be frozen in time (eternity). So the next time you hear about God’s mercy, relax and say to yourself “no, no, only God’s Perfect Love”.

GUILTY: Without any doubt, no word in the English Language better describes the “human condition”. It has been the mainstay of religion and law since the Hebrew days of Moses. During their trek through the desert in Exodus, the Hebrews grew weary and impatient with God because of their miserable plight. So they followed the example of their Egyptian captors and began worshiping idols. Moses was distraught, because plainly, he had lost control. In response, God made him two stone tablets with 10 commandments inscribed. When presented with such “nonsense”, the Israelites just laughed at Moses and went their merry way. Being extremely angered, Moses goes up the mountain and God gives him a fresh set. This time Moses presents them with threats of extreme consequences if ignored again. They repented for a while and fell in line. However, as human nature goes, it didn’t take long for law breakers to appear and, of course, punishment ensued. Now since that time, the legal system of the civilized (?) Western world has been, and still is, “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”. That same system has been used by religion for control and extortion of the faithful. Nothing works better than setting a big steak before a starving man, then dare him to touch it. One very astute Catholic Theologian noted that all one has to do to control a man is to grab him by the crotch with one hand and by the throat with the other. That is exactly what organized religion has done since the time of Moses. We all have been made “guilty” by default. As explained by the church, the only way to exonerate yourself, is to give everything you own to the church. You might even shorten your time in Purgatory by buying Indulgences; once upon a time, many did out of desperation; “it is easier for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye than for a ‘rich man’ to get to heaven”. So The entire human society has been artificially made ‘guilty’ ostensibly for POWER, MONEY, CONTROL. The system worked for a while, as long as the church laws were enforced by the state. People had two choices, conform or be punished. Punishment may be in the form of beheading, burning alive, or banishment to the wild animals. However, as time went on, dissention in the ranks erupted. What ensued was the Great Schism, followed in a few centuries by the Protestant Reformation. Those events culminated in a religious free-for-all. What we have now is 33,000 Christian denominations, each claiming authenticity, and each imparting its special aroma of GUILT; and the beat goes on. If you would like a scientifically, historically, and philosophically correct assessment of all this mess, combined with an irrefutable solution, please read my little book Wilderness Cry: Amazon, Kindle et. al. You will become guilt free instantly and forever.
