Socialism-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSOCIALISM: how often in the history of the USA  have we heard that term—in fact we are hearing and seeing it openly advocated by political candidates on a moment to moment basis. Essentially all of the ‘isms’ carry then same base brand—taking from the ‘haves’ and giving to the ‘have nots’. This is a political ploy as old as the hills. It appeals to many for two basic reasons. Number one, many ‘less fortunate’ folks are eager to get free stuff. Number two, many of those same people are envious of their more fortunate neighbors and selfishly desire  to see them reduced to financial ruin—the foolish idea that it betters one’s situation to see his neighbor fail–envy at it’s best.

So lets examine some causes of success and failure. Obviously there are many examples of inheritance wealth and,  of those, the ones who invest wisely and  well will succeed even more–those who are ill prepared for wealth will soon be ‘poor’. However, the vast majority of people who succeed, do so by hard work and determination—most of them would fall into the oft spoken of ‘middle class’. Then there  are the ‘poor’.

What causes people to be poor? There are a myriad of causes. Just to enumerate a few–birth into poverty of both wealth and motivation; psychological influences promoting such an attitude; physical and mental disabilities making meaningful industry essentially impossible (however, I personally know one person with severe IQ limitations who has consistently held two to three jobs simultaneously for thirty years and has done very well financially—he had great guidance. Obviously that is the exception rather than the rule.); bad luck; major unexpected health issues, etc.

The question arises as to how we, as a loving society, address these issues of poverty. The socialists scream, ‘take from the rich and give to the poor”. That appeals to many—free everything on the backs of the ‘rich’. Guess what happens—the rich quit producing because their effort are not rewarded; the poor are not capable of producing. So, what happens then—the good old ‘give away’  government is broke, the roof caves in, and the system fails. My research has revealed that no socialist government has lasted one hundred years. Just look at the USSR.

As a Capitalistic nation, we long ago established backstops against financial failure and medical collapse for many. That does not mean to say that reforms may be not needed–almost everything needs tweaking periodically to keep abreast of changing times.

It is quite obvious that most of the world is envious of our prosperity. Many world leaders would do anything to wreck our prosperity and make us poor as they are–then they would feel good. Many individuals break our laws daily entering our country illegally–they have the support of two major organizations, the Democratic Party and the Catholic Church. Both seem desperate for similar reasons. The Democrats want open borders so they can give the immigrants freebies and thereby garner their votes (power, money, control). The Church wants open borders to beef up their enrollment believing that eventually those people would get meaningful jobs and begin contributing to the ’empire’ (money, power, control).

The problem with all that pseudo philosophy is this—sooner or later the drag on our economic engine becomes to great and our system fails. So who’s the winner?–poverty.

So rather than killing the greatest machine ever known at the federal level, we need to become more ‘loving’ on the local, private level. Communities need to step up their local, support for the needy. In Paducah, Ky., there are many great organizations who assist the poor and needy on a daily basis—I am certain more can and should be done. The answer is not in federal ‘giveaway’ wastefulness, but rather local control with possible federal assistance.

As for the ‘open border’ situation we need our border closed tightly so legal immigration can proceed judiciously, As a nation we need to keep our ‘Giant Economic Engine” running wide open so we can afford to ‘assist’ other countries in developing  their own economic engines—little to be gained by destroying our engine in the name of Socialism. Jesus did not teach such a philosophy–‘render unto Caesar– ‘.

The above philosophy is spelled out explicitly in my two books. Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Press releases and video trailers for each attached.

Contradiction-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngCONTRADICTION: the word itself mean a saying or statement that seems contrary to the reality or truth of another statement. Contradictions are a ‘dime a dozen’ in our everyday lives—may are readily resolved and many go totally unresolved. I want to address what seems to me do be a direct contradiction between Christian prayer and a direct quote from Luke’s Gospel.

The Christian prayer in question is the Apostles Creed which says, ‘Jesus was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. He arose again on the third day—‘ . Luke, in referring to Jesus’ crucifixion with the two insurgents on either side says that one of them rebuked Jesus for not saving  them and  himself, while the other scolds the first for rebuking Jesus, attesting that Jesus was innocent while they were getting their ‘just due’—he asked Jesus to ‘remember him when he came into his kingdom’. Jesus replied ‘this day thou shalt be with me in paradise’.

This appears to me to be a clear-cut example of ‘direct contradiction’. Some apologists, may attempt to explain it away with some hidden meaning of hell etc. However common folks speaking and hearing common language would definitely have a clear understanding that those two statements are a direct contradiction of one another.

As a matter of factual experience, during my 81 years of regular weekly/daily attendance at Catholic Mass, I have never once heard the issue addressed from the pulpit. I believe I know why—there is no rational explanation.

While I can’t prove either of the statements to be correct/incorrect, my strong suspicion is that neither is correct. In the first instance, no one knows what happened to Jesus’ soul, and in the second instance, we know from History Professor Emiratis, Garry Will, That Luke was a veritable liar. Professor Will, in his book, What Paul Meant, Shows clearly that everything Luke wrote in ‘Acts Of The Apostles’ was a total lie. Paul, you recall was the first writer—he wrote about his activities basically as they occurred. Luke’s writings about Paul’s activities bear no resemblance to Paul’s writings. Luke fashioned a religion the way he wanted it—not according to Jesus’ plan.

So, ‘right off the bat’ we have, contradictions galore and we have unfounded speculations galore all of which set the stage for the birth of more mythology founded religions—33,000 of them to be exact (as of 2014).

Preachers of every ilk have pounded the pages of that ‘holy book’ without the slightest notion of that they are saying—how can they possibly know? They speak incessantly about a god that they don’t know, and they speak incessantly about a Jesus they don’t know. And for what purpose?—money, power control. These same preachers  are building empires of structures, wealth an influence. Is That what Jesus supposedly told his apostles?—I don’t think so.

While shaking the dust off my cerebral cortex, I seem to remember Jesus telling his apostles to ‘go into the world and preach the good news that God loves you and that I have come to die for your salvation. Take no provisions; accept that is offered you; If you are not received, shake the dust off your sandals and move on’ (paraphrased). Of all the hundreds of thousands of preachers in the world, what percentage of them are concerned enough about your soul  to do as Jesus said?—I suspect extremely few. Do you see the hypocrisy as I do?

More importantly, do you see the lament?  While the preachers are amassing wealth, simultaneously they are unwittingly/possibly wittingly spreading hostility among Gods People—‘my preaching(church) is better than your’.

Please read my little books, Wilderness Cry , and Peace in Spirituality. In wilderness Cry I actually define the essence  of God, so now you may know explicitly just who your God is. In Peace in Spirituality, I show the absolute only fool-proof pathway to peace. Press Releases and video trailers for both books attached—all comments and questions welcomed.

Baptism With the Holy Spirit-Hilary L Hunt MD

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

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

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

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

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

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

BAPTISM-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngBAPTISM: today I want to address the custom of Baptism and discuss its history. I would venture to guess that most Christians think of Baptism as a Christian rite originating with John the Baptist and Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan. Nothing, however, could be farther from the truth. A simple perusal of historical data will show that ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians, and cultures of all sorts including Hindus and American Indians had some sort of ritual Baptism.

In the case of Christians, the practice undoubtedly came through the Jews from the Egyptians. The Egyptians believed that baptism in the waters of the Nile river afforded them an immersion into god in the next life. You will recall that the Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians for years. It is very likely that during that period, the Jews adopted some of their captors ways—baptism was one of them.

So when the New Testament says matter of factly that John was baptizing in the Jordan, it was understood by the writer that his readers would know what he was IMG_1065referring to—it was a common practice.

When Jesus came along and was baptized by John, the developing Christian church established the process as a sacrament. Moreover, the church declared it an absolute requirement for admission into heaven—un-baptized people could not enter heaven; they went to a place called limbo—a place of natural happiness but not supernatural, perfect happiness. When I was catechized in Roman Catholicism, baptism was to be done expeditiously—doctors, nurses and all people were instructed in the simple process of pouring on the water and saying the baptismal words in case of emergency or risk of death. In any event, baptism as a formal ceremony, done by a priest seldom went 7-10 days post-partum.

As I attend Sunday Mass, baptism are frequent, and many are done during the Mass ceremony itself—others done after Mass. It seems obvious that most of these babies are several weeks(months) old. I wonder why the change in sense of urgency. The ceremony used to be done in private—now with great hoopla. Anyone have any ideas? Has limbo been swept under the carpet? I haven’t heard the word mentioned from the pulpit in sixty years.

The truth of the matter is this; baptism has absolutely nothing to do with our salvation—that has been guaranteed by the death of Jesus. My two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality elucidate all. By defining the essence  of God, I am able to address every human condition relating to God and salvation. Press Release and video trailers for these books included.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

r_P70491TA200411_cr_22441_FullPERFECT (5)-as stated before, God created all of the tiny energy particles which he has allowed to develop into a %100 evil universe by virtue of its selfishness. And you may ask in amazement and/or wonderment how or if that can possibly be. Selfishness, you may recall, is anything directed at self. Since we all have been imbued with the notion that selfishness is equilibrated with sin, we may easily overlook the fact that every living thing has many  needs directed at self in order to survive. What society and or religion has dubbed  sin equilibrates to extreme degrees of selfishness. Therein lies the eternal  trap of  judging your neighbor—“he doesn’t need that big house”; “just look at that $1000 dress she’s wearing. She thinks she is big stuff”.—and so on. Just where is the line between absolute basic needs and extreme selfishness. I submit to you that it is a matter of personal interpretation which in itself is a consequence of personality development. Just as no two gross physical entities are identical, neither are any two personalities—similar, yes; identical, no. All physical entities are built of the same identical quanta of energy. Similarly, all personalities are built out of each and every experience our being encounters. They begin with our basic genetic make-up and end at death. In between they are undergoing the gradual evolutionary process of change just as is the entire universe. Therefore, it is philosophically impossible for any two individuals to make the identical interpretation of any occurrence—similar, yes; identical, no. God knows that—he made it to be that way for a very specific reason—Love.

So here we have an entire universe of evil (selfish) things and people all of which a Perfect God has allowed to develop—why; how can that be. Believe it or not the answer to that seeming paradoxical question is rather simple. It has to do with two concepts—Eternity and God’s Perfect Love. We will discuss Eternity and its ramifications today.

How would you define eternity? I would define it very simply—Eternity is a state of being without change. We live in a physical world wherein change is constant and unrelenting. Since we have need of living in harmony with that change, we have seen need to measure that change in increments we can interpret and understand. Those increments of measured change we call time. Time is a measure of change. Since there is no time in eternity, change is impossible—many, many implications. God is Perfect and thereby incapable of change—therefore he exists in eternity. The Catholic Church and its near mimickers teach of Purgatory, a state of being where a soul is tormented for a period of time in order to remove the stain of sin before entering Heaven. Do you, as I do, see the irrationality in that concept? Clearly, it violates two concepts of eternity— both time and change.

Many religious people speak and teach about heaven. They routinely describe it as a place  of eternal bliss where everyone blessed to be there will be running around greeting uncle Joe and Aunt Lilly, gleefully hugging, kissing them and catching up on old times. All of this will be occurring in God’s presence, but more importantly, some will be closer to God (a higher place in heaven) than others. Number one, does that sound selfish to you—it does to me. Number two, would it really matter?—is it possible to be more happy than perfectly happy?—I don’t think so. All of that sounds like mythological garbage to me. Number three, all of that motion and exchange definitely violates concepts of eternity. I believe there is a reality, and it is to be found in God’s Perfect Love.

Quite obviously, when we die, sooner or later we will be reduced to the basic building blocks from whence we came. Those building blocks (quanta) persist in God eternally. Will they have a specific recognizance, separate and distinct from all other entities? I do not know—only God knows that—I hope so.

There— you have two of the three great virtues of which the apostle Paul speaks—Faith that there is a God and Hope that we will persist in that God Eternally.

In my book, Wilderness Cry I show how everything in this universe is selfish. All living things have needs of nutrition and space. All inanimate things have needs of space and motion and are constantly attempting to displace each other for self accommodation. In my next installment, I will discuss God’s Perfect Love—enter Jesus.

In the meantime, I will continue to insert Covenant Books Press Release and Video trailer for Wilderness Cry and eagerly look forward to the day when both are available for Peace in Spirituality.

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

 

r_P70491TA200411_cr_22441_FullDoes the word persecution bring chills of terror to your being?—it does mine. Have/are you guilty of persecution—I have been unwittingly—hopefully not now. It has frequently been said that with age comes wisdom which, in itself, comes from education, observation, soul-searching and inner honesty. As we mature in life many of us ask questions about old habits of thought, feelings and activities—wisdom allows us to answer those questions correctly thereby reducing and/or eliminating the persecutory attitude we have demonstrate for years. Most people nowadays are familiar with all sorts of religious, political and racial persecution both from the beginning of recorded history up until today. If you ask the average person on the street who professes a religion if he/she persecutes, I would venture to say a strong denial would be the response. However, if one engages that person in a conversation regarding religious beliefs and foundations, almost instinctively a confrontational presence will appear—even more-so with political discussions—less so now with racial discussions. Why do you suppose that is? I think it is a hold-over from remote modern times when overt persecutions by the majority in control were the norm—hence the discovery and settlement of the United States Of America. But even that attempt at escaping persecution in a “perfectly free” nation didn’t stem the tide completely. Various Protestant and Catholic factions viewed each other with a disdainful jaundiced eye–they still do but usually with rather smug attitude of acceptance. However not a single one is willing to give the other full quarter. Isn’t that perpetual attitude a form of civil, mental and emotional ill-treatment?—I think so. Way too often, churches have convinced their believers that theirs is the only true path to God; that they are the only ones with the correct set of understandings—every other church is wrong. Is it not an innate understanding then that your neighbor is not worthy of your total acceptance (love). If asked, could you give a good logical answer as to why there are 33,000 so-called Christian denominations in the world, and each proclaiming absolute authenticity?—I can. The reason is very simple; absolutely no one knows who or what God is. Oh, if you asked any one of them that seemingly simple question, you could expect an immediate rush of verbiage rattling off what God has done and is going to do, but not one single word about who God is. And here my friends is the cause of all the hostilities and resultant persecutions that have plagued mankind and the earth forever—no one before me has ever defined the essence of God. Without an essential definition, you simply do not know about what or whom you are speaking. It’s like attempting to talk in detail about an automobile without knowing what one is. So the simple fact is that people throughout the ages have concocted schemes of appeasing their god in hopes of greater prosperity. They even felt the necessity to defend their god against the onslaught of other’s gods—guess what; they still do. On the minimum but persistent scale they persecute and terrorize each other as described above. On a grander scale they fight to the death eternally—all in defense of their god whom they do not know. So,  how do we stop this endless persecution and terrorization? As I describe in my recently released book, Peace In Spirituality, there is only one, singular way. We must become likeminded. That means each person must have an identical understanding of the essence of God—that understanding can only come from an essential definition. That essential definition is as follows— God is a Perfect Rational Being. Six little words say it all—there can be no argument or disagreement. With that understanding, we can readily see how that Perfect Intellect Perceived all and that Perfect Will (The Holy Spirit) achieved and sustains all. Its Perfection denies a possibility of being pleased or hurt. Its Perfect Love denies any possibility of hell or torment in the afterlife—we are accepted in spite of our evil selfishness. You would do yourself well to read Wilderness Cry first and then read Peace in spirituality—you will understand all and will thereby be able to cease your persecution and terror. Both books published by Covenant Books and available world-wide both hard-copy and e-books.906242_Press Release for Wilderness Cry
