URGE: what a powerful word with which to describe the insatiable forces of nature. In general this word suggest a persistent inclination or force to completion of an action. Everywhere we look, those forces are being played out to completion or attempted completion. For instance, the waves of an ocean roll on to shore in unrelenting fashion–a rock-slide on a mountain persists until it meets an unrelenting opposite force. Personally, as a farmer and gardener, I have observed thousands of times how living vegetation exhibits those powerful urges to reproduce. In the spring and early summer, a specific weed or grass may grow for weeks and reach considerable height before any sign of seed appear on its stem—it seems to be taking its ‘good ole easy time’ with no sense of urgency. As a matter of principle, there is no urgency—it has all summer to ‘get the job done’. However, in late summer and fall, that same weed or grass sprig may sprout today and show seed formation in just a few days–a dramatic sense of urgency—frost is coming soon and that means death. The species must be reproduced at all cost—there is no time for leisure ‘growth loafing’. In the animal kingdom we observe that same sense of urgency albeit in somewhat different fashion. Typically, the larger, stronger male will challenge all others for the breeding rights to an impatiently waiting female—the survival of the fittest. Humans are little different. The urge for reproduction is unrelenting. The main difference is that humans make an attempt at being civilized in their choice of mate. Given the opportunity, the average human will breed ‘come hell or high water’—and whether or not the opportunity presents itself, the unrelenting ‘urge’ is always there. Throughout the centuries of Christianity’s existence, the Church has attempted to stifle that urge– I have often wondered for what purpose. Was/is it a deliberate attempt to control the masses, or does the Church consider sex to be intrinsically evil? I suspect a tinge of both. The net result of attempting to thwart the second strongest urge in life is the generation of millions and millions of neurotic and or psychotic people. Taylor, in his very astute book Sex In History, described medieval Europe as one giant cesspool of psychosis generated by the Church’s attempts to demonize and suppress sexual activity—the inquisition lives on even till today. The Church can’t physically harm you, but for those who submit to its teachings, the likelihood is they are permanently psychologically harmed. I am convinced that this singular attitudinal teaching of religion is the primary cause of most neurotic disease in the world. As people worldwide have become more educated and introspective, they have abandoned religion as being irrelevant in their lives. This is borne out by statistics which show church attendance to be diminishing steadily. That does not coincide with lack of spirituality in those people—it simply means that their common sense overrides irrational concepts propagated by religion. These concepts and many, many more are drawn out extensively in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both books published by Covenant Books. If you have an ‘urge’ for truth, their readings are mandatory. All comments welcomed. You may like the attached trailer video produced by Covenant Books about Wilderness Cry.
YOUR GOD: Who is your God? Could you define for me the essence of God so I might know your God? Very likely not, for the simple reason that no one before me has ever defined the essence of God. So everyone who utters the word God is referring to a total unknown—therefore there is a different God for every human that ever lived and that amounts to billions and billions. So no wonder there are 33,000 so-called Christian religions in the world and each claiming absolute authority and authenticity. There are the sacrificial Christians who each worship a different phantom God. Then there are the bible thumping Christians who swear and bedamned if everything needed to be known about God is in a book so corrupted as to be scandalous. Each and every preacher and acolyte alike are worshiping a phantom God on a continuing basis. In addition each is making proclamations galore concerning this mythical creature as though they were absolute truths—in fact they all are absolute mythology and phantasy. You may rise up and call me a blasphemer, but you only expose your ignorance. In the first instance, no one can prove the existence of a God—neither can anyone disprove its existence. Only if you can (have) defined the essence of God are you allowed to even utter the word except in an admitted speculative sense and acknowledgement. I have, in fact, defined the essence of God in irrefutable terms. My definition stems from known science and makes it absolutely reasonable but not provable that there is God (Supreme Being). Because of the absolute perfection in both form and function of each and every particle of energy which makes up everything in this universe, it is completely rational to assume that some perfect rationality envisioned, chose, and keeps perfect each of those particles. That understanding prompted, allowed, and demanded my definition of God’s essence—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition says it all—it mandates concept of Trinity—it defines eternity as a perpetual state of no change. It mandates recognition of God’s Will (Love, Holy Spirit) being imprinted on everything in existence—therefore everything is in God and God is in everything. God can neither be pleased nor displeased—something perfect is complete and cannot be changed. So my God is knowable, and its activities are to some extent observable. No longer do we have to rely on the mythology of a flat earth, Zodiac, astrology, and all the other superstitions and mythology associated with concepts of God. We now have a concrete understanding of our creator, sustainer and savior. Therefore, our only legitimate prayer is—thank you Lord God, Jesus. and Holy Spirit (Will of God). Amen. I have written extensively about these subjects in my Books Wilderness Cry (available all on-line outlets and many book stores) And Peace in Spirituality to be released shortly—both books published by Covenant Books.
TRAITOR JESUS—You may shriek in horror at such a suggestion, but that is exactly what he was and he knew it. Jesus knew that what he was preaching was treasonous as far as the Jews were concerned. And just what was Jesus teaching that veered so radically from Jewish theology? In a nutshell the Jews put God in one spot and all his creation elsewhere. God was sitting on a throne constantly watching the activities of his created children. When they were bad, God sent all sorts of torment on them. Conversely, when they were good , God showered them with blessings of all kinds but mainly lots of animals and lots of sons to tend the flocks. Jesus appeared on the scene teaching that God was in everything and that everything was in God. He taught that he and everyone and everything were mirror images of God. Recognizing the universal evil of SELFISHNESS, Jesus saw himself as the sacrificial lamb who must die in atonement for all the worlds evil. Jesus knew that his teachings would bring crucifixion. so he stayed in the shadows for most of his ministerial years. He made a desperate attempt to educate the twelve illiterate apostles to what he was saying and who God really was. It seems very doubtful that he succeeded at all. I say that because the bible we have now show very little testimony to his real teachings. However those bibles were written and rewritten dozens of times to suit the whelms of the writers. The only clear testamentary writing I can find is the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. In that writing, Jesus tells his apostles over and over and over again that he is in everything and everything is in him. He also tells them that everything is of the same substance. However in the synoptic gospels, Jesus says the same thing at the last supper. He tells them that the bread and wine they were eating and drinking were his body and blood. I submit to you that if he had a banana and a fish and some Irish whiskey, he would have told them the same thing. All of those teachings were total heresy and were considered treason. After exhausting all efforts at inculcating his apostles, he readily confronted the Jewish hierarchy in the temple which brought him to the tribunal that pronounced treason and demanded crucifixion. Golgotha was the high point along the roadway in Jerusalem and all traitors, of which there were many, were crucified there in plain sight as a reminder to would-be insurgents as to what their fate would be. Jesus had a twofold plan—to die for all iniquity, and to educate the world through the apostles about the true identity of God. He definitely succeeded in the first effort but was a total failure in the second. There may be some institutions in this world that recognize and preach the true identity of God, but I have not yet encountered any. The reason for that is plain as the nose on your face. No one before me has defined the essence of God. Without that essential definition, they know not anything about that which they preach. I have defined the essence of God thus: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality explains all and eliminates all mystery about the nature of God. It mandates the understanding that the image of God is stamped on everything; elsewise it could not exist. Jesus with his super intellect saw through that understanding—he recognized the universal evil of selfishness and recognized that, since he was the only one to see that, he was committed to paying the price. He did so willingly but with ungodly fear and trepidation. Jesus, the traitor paid the price that we may have eternal peace with God. You may find a complete accounting of this philosophy in my book Wilderness Cry, and my soon to be released book, Peace in Spirituality—both by Covenant Books. All comments welcomed.
TRINITY: How many times in your life have you heard and/or used the word Trinity? More importantly, how have you reacted to its hearing or use? If your experience has been anyway similar to mine, and I strongly suspect it has, then you have been continually inundated with combined feelings of doubt, guilt, anxiety, querulousness, suspicion, bewilderment, and even anger. The reason for all those emotional reactions is simply that we are expected to believe and accept something that nobody can explain—its a mystery we are told and unknowable. Our common rationality kicks into high gear immediately—we are expected to believe something no one can explain? How can that be? I pondered that question for fifty years. Realizing that the concept of Trinity God came from Jesus’ teachings as depicted in the Bible, it occurred to, me that if Jesus were teaching it, understanding should be rather simple. After countless readings of the New Testament, and observing repeated discrepancies, it occurred to me that the writers of the Bible either didn’t understand what Jesus was saying or simply didn’t believe him. From my standpoint it was impossible to determine which, but ultimately, I decided it made no difference—I would make sense of it anyway. The first task was to define the essence of God. That I did with six simple little words—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition says it all. More importantly, it removes all mystery from our lives. All we need do is be humble and accept it—organized religions never have and likely never will. They are not about to give up their Power, Money, Control. However, as an individual seeking truth, those entities are not in my domain—I am free to think rationally and more importantly free to accept the truth where I find it. So here is what I found. The definition of God’s essence a perfect rational being not only allows but demands Trinity. You may explode in derision—just hold on; ,I’m going to “blow you away”. Just what is perfect rationality? It is a Perfect Intellect which perceives all and a Perfect Will which achieves all that the Perfect Intellect perceives. Now consider this—what would a Perfect Intellect reflect upon or perceive? Obviously something perfect if available. Well, the only perfect thing in existence is itself—so that Perfect Intellect reflects upon itself and what does it see?—-a perfect “mirror image” of itself—the Second Person of the Trinity. Since God exists in the Supernatural, that mirror image is a living being also. Now we have two Perfect Intellects perceiving each other. What choice do they have except to accept (love, choose, will) each other. That perpetual willing, loving, choosing each other carries the image of its generator, and is the Will of God—the Holy Spirit. So there you have a clear visual of the Trinity—three identical persons, one God—mystery solved. The solution of that mystery demands a complete about face for the Aristilian, Aquinian philosophy upon which all three Abrahamic religions have been built. Each of those religions have put God here and his creation over there. Jesus told us differently. He said the Kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth about you and you don’t see it. He said “this is my body and this is my blood” meaning that his spirit (the Spirit of God) is in everything and everything is in God. God and his creation are one. Every grain of sand and grain of salt; every drop of water; every gravid object in this universe is branded with the image of God. Every tint particle of energy which makes up every gravid object is perfect in both form and function—it is kept that way by the Holy Spirit (will) of God. In light of all that many fallacies can be laid to rest. The so-called miracles people speak of are figments of imagination. In order for a miracle to happen, God would have to change his nature—a complete impossibility. Something perfect as God is cannot change. Understandably, people want to plead with God to do this or that. That ideation shows a complete lack of understanding of the nature of God. Our only justifiable prayer is “Thank You Trinity God for our existence, for our sustenance and for our salvation. If you want a very clear understanding of these and many more concepts you need to read my book Wilderness Cry, available everywhere and my soon to be released book Peace In Spirituality—both published by Covenant Books.
Have you ever noticed that the very people who are PREACHING “God’s word, are the very same ones who wear fine suits, live in mansions and at the same time play on your sentiment as though they were Jesus themselves. These people are scallywags, bilkers of your sympathy and your money. They throw every fallacious concept of God and salvation at you humanly imaginable. They play on your ultimate “guilt trip” which they, themselves, implanted in you—why? So they could control you and more importantly your wallet and/or pocketbook. What did Jesus tell his disciples? Go into the world and tell everyone the gospel (good news)—take no, provisions—live off of what they offer you—if you are not accepted in a town, shake the dust off your sandals and move on. What was/is the good news? I, Jesus, have come into the world to die for you that all your stain of sin and guilt is removed—relax and be happy and thankful=—I represent your Creator. The preachers who scold and taunt you with selected biblical passages—passages which were installed into the Holy Word by scalawags who had a monetary bias, are the most devious of mankind. They sell their souls from minute to minute for monetary gain. Just do a little experiment—ask your preacher to live off what the parishioners offer him/her and see how long you have a preacher. I’ll guarantee you that in the vast majority of cases, your preacher won’t last a month. They are not deliverers of Jesus’ words—They are deliverers of money grabbing words. Why did Jesus overturn the money changers tables in the temple?—because they were making a mockery of God. Guess what?—they still are. Religion is the biggest “racket” the world has ever known. Prostitution may be the oldest occupation in the world, but organized religion far outstrips it monetarily—prostitution is illegal in most regions; organized RELIGION IS JUST LEGAL THIEVERY. Paul tells us that salvation is a pure gift from God through the death of Jesus. There is absolutely nothing we can do to enhance or detract from it. The least needed group of people in the world are the collective of preachers. Read my little book, Wilderness Cry-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, and you will have a clear understanding of who God is and who these scalawag preachers are. It is available Amazon, Kindle and all on-line book retailers and e-books.
The definition of the word ignorant reveals a perfect description of most people’s understanding of God and its functions. The word itself stems from the Latin ignorantem which means lack of wisdom or knowledge, unawareness etc. Since the beginning of recorded history, great thinkers have tried desperately to define the essence of God. The word essence, itself, has derivation in many languages, but basically means “to be”. In other words, essence is that quality of being that make something what it basically is. Accidents are those attributes that make something the specific one of its essential kind. For instance, I frequently use the example of tables; the essence of a table is its “tableness”, that being the singular quality that makes it a table. The accidents of a table, round, square, rectangular, four legged, three legged, five legged, wood, glass, wrought iron, etc. are those attributes that make it a specific table or a specific design. With that essential understanding, then, we see how important it is to define God’s essence. Otherwise we do not know God—we are totally ignorant. The great philosophers and theologians of all major religions throughout history, recognizing the simplistic understanding of God, have tried in futility to understand and define God’s essential nature—all failed miserably, and they failed for one simple but very essential reason—they knew no science. The word science comes from the root Latin scientia which means knowledge which of course is truth and truth is perfection. The only person to ever live who was able to define God’s essence was the genius, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus knew no physical science, but he surely understood philosophical science better than anyone who ever lived. He knew that In order for anything to be, it must be marked with God’s love, the Holy Ghost. He could see clearly how the Jews, while proclaiming a one true God, used that proclamation for their own political and monetary gain. They concocted a picture of God to their own liking. They designed a god who was a King sitting on a thrown, observing his creation, and hurling both good and evil at it and its inhabitants, seemingly on a whelm. They devised schemes of bargaining with their God and even went so far as to carry him around on their shoulders in a wooden box, The Arc Of The Covenant. Of course only certain ones of them were allowed to offer sacrifice to their God, and he charged a pretty penny. As time went on, a temple was built around the Arc Of The Covenant—the high priest was the only person allowed inside the arc to actually offer the sacrifice. Since each offering had to be perfect, The High Priest, himself, was the one to furnish them—presumably he charged penitents a fortune for those perfect offerings. Hence, the New testament story of Jesus overturning the money-changers table and thrashing them with a whip. Does anyone see the similarity between the High Priest and the Arc, and the Christian priest and the tabernacle. In the Catholic Mass, at the offertory, the priest proclaims his intention to make a perfect offering to God. Seemingly, all of this ritual comes straight out of the Jewish playbook, and furthermore, it was allowed to come into play by Constantine at the first Council at Nicaea. He gave the bishops strict orders and leeway to fashion a religion of their choosing—and that they did. They were in total control with the official backing of the Roman Empire. The history of the unthinkable abuses which eventually led first to the Greek Schism and later on the Protestant Reformation is generally well known. Here we are today still shackled by the same ignorance as at least 4000 years ago. Christianity alone is fragmented into over 33,000 denominations, each claiming authenticity, and not one of them being based on an essential definition of an entity they claim so self-righteously to know. One of the most famous theologians to tackle the subject was a German, Meister Eckhart. Joel Harrington describes in detail how Meister Eckhart struggled all his life to define God’s essence. He realized that the miniscule understanding of God was dreadfully insufficient. In his book Dangerous Mystic, Harrington describes with erudite clarity Eckhart’s struggles. Many of his assertions were directly heretical and were brought before the Inquisition, but he died before he could be convicted. I highly recommend Harrington’s book. In my case, at an early age, being raised in a strict Roman Catholic family, I began to see discrepancies in what I was taught to believe and what I could observe. By age thirty or so, I became determined to discover the truth. It was indeed a 50 year struggle and endeavor—I knew all the questions, but the answers were elusive. I read, studied, reasoned, became frustrated like others before me. I was a busy, innovative, Orthopedic surgeon, married with five children—my life was very full, but I never relaxed in my quest for understanding. Finally, one day about ten years ago it hit me—the definition of God’s essence was clear as crystal. What allowed that clarity was my understand of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics). That understanding showed me that everything in this universe is made up of exactly the same tiniest particles of energy. Those particle have various names and functions but not one more or less is in existence now than 13.7 billion years ago, nor will there ever be a change in their number and function. Each is perfect in form and function. That recognition told me instantly that Jesus was correct. Each of those perfect particles could only be perfect by virtue of their creator being perfect and branding them with its perfect love, the Will of God, the Holy Spirit. I was instantly able and mandated to define the essence of God with all ease. Six simple English words say it all—God is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition is all inclusive and irrefutable. Not one word can be added or detracted. It says it all. I then preceded to write my own philosophy book which I publishes almost three years ago, and Covenant Books republished and released in March of this year. Its title is WILDERNESS CRY-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe. It is available at Amazon and all on-line retailers and e-books. In my book, I describe the entire process of getting to the essential definition. I wipe away all of the so-called mysteries in religion. With all ease I define and describe in clearest terms a vivid graphic picture of the Trinity, the Soul, Eternity, Heaven and many, many aspects of life. I show how organized religion of all regions of the world have created chaos on a continuing basis. I show that God’s Perfect Love precludes any possibility of Hell. In short, I removed all the ignorance about God and his creation. Maybe the most important aspect of this knowledge is to debunk the idea that God is separate from its creation. God’s Spirit is the soul of every energy particle in existence. God is our soul, and we will never (cannot possibly) be separated from it. In nearly three years time, not a single word of blow-back from anyone—no rebuttal is possible. I have requested it repeatedly, but none is forthcoming—the reason is simple—none is possible. Oh I’m sure it rubs a lot of people the wrong way for various reason but that’s all they can say. Its understandable that most people don’t like being told how they have been duped all their lives, but that has nothing to do with truth. I have another book, Peace in Spirituality, which will be released by Covenant Books soon—2 months or so. It expands the essence of God and shows the only way to permanent peace. Peace is possible but highly unlikely anyways soon for obvious reasons—money, control, power. Those three culprits are the result of the only evil in the world, universal selfishness. I highly recommend you read my books and eliminate your IGNORANCE. All comments welcomed.
RELIGION-how would you define religion? It seems strange that, even in WEBSTERS DICTIONARY, the word is used to define itself (not allowed in my world). I would define religion as a set of beliefs, relating to the existence of or lack thereof a God, typically accompanied by a set of ritualistic practices. Those practices and beliefs vary greatly among the religions of the world and their various sects. As of 2014. the World Christian Dictionary listed 33,000 Christian denominations and/or branches of denominations alone. It is very likely that a number approaching 100,000 would be needed to list every variance of every religion in civilization. Have you ever wondered why that is? How can so many millions/billions of people have such diverse ideas concerning a subject so certain to each? To me the answer is very simple; we have no certain template. We have many, many loose group. For instance in Christianity, we have the sacrificial Christians (Catholics, Episcopals, Lutherans, etc.); then we have the so-called fundamentalists who accept no possible belief except the words of a book which have been written and rewritten hundreds of times, and which is subject to each preacher and/or member’s interpretation. Then of course there is Judaism with its numerous divisions and practices. Add on Islam with its multiple fractions and you have wrapped up the Abrahamic religions. Now consider the more contemplative religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism each with their subdivisions and designations. There are many others including Baha’i, Confucianism, Jainism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism, and Zoroastrianism. Add all these together and one would have an extremely large number of religions, branches, and sects. Now mind you, no two people of the entire 7.7 billion people in the world worship the same God nor practice an identical religion. Each may call themselves a Southern Baptist, a Roman Catholic, a Church of Christ, a Jew, a Muslim, Buddhist etc. However, no two of them either in their own denomination or in differing denominations have the same “religion”. Each is worshiping a different God. Unwittingly, each is, in fact, worshiping the same God but just doesn’t know it. How can that be? In the first instance, by definition, there can be only one God (Supreme Being). So, even though each person may think he/she is worshiping a God different from all others, it cant be. But still, each person in the world who admits to there being a God has his own idea of who that God is and what he looks, thinks, acts like etc. The obvious question would be why are there so many religions and so many different concepts of God; why are people so vehemently protective of their God to the destruction of yours? The entire 7.7 billion of earth’s inhabitants are in perfect accord about millions or even billions of scientific concepts. For instance, if arithmetic were a religion, there would be only one religion in the world and each of the 7.7 billion inhabitants would be of same like-mindedness. Each would know explicitly and in perfect accord that 2+2=4. There would be no hostilities, arguing, disagreements or negativity. There would be only perfect peace. Why then are all the earth’s inhabitants now and always have been at odds about a concept of God? The answer is as plain to see as the “nose on your face”—no one before me has ever defined the essence on God. Having an awareness of that fact forced me to define God’s essence. I’ll grant you it took me years of contemplation before the obvious struck me. As is usual with essential definitions, few words were needed. In fact, I was able to define God’s essence with six simple words—God is a perfect rational being. That definition is all inclusive and irrefutable. It is not subject to question, disillusionment, negation, expansion, or denial. It explains concisely the perfect rationality which designed our perfect universe and keeps it perfect. That definition removes all doubt; it solves all so-called mysteries. So with that understanding of God’s essence, religion as such needs to be abolished. The only justifiable religion is the universal church of thanksgiving. That church would continuously thank God for our existence, for our sustenance, and for our salvation. The greatest human benefit of that understanding would be universal like-mindedness which equilibrates to peace. In my little book, Wilderness Cry (covenant Books), I explain in detail how religion with its diverse and obtuse projections of God causes all the discord in the world. I explain the essential definition of God and show how lack of knowledge thereof has created the morass of universal turmoil we witness on a daily basis. I show explicitly how God’s perfect love negates any idea of hell or damnation. I show conclusively how eternity is a state of being; that heaven is a state of oneness with God for us all as well as everything in existence. I show how religion has adversely effected our legal system and literally every aspect of our lives. In my soon to be published book Peace in Spirituality (Covenant Books), I reiterate all the negativities associated with religion and show that peace is possible—it is possible only through universal acceptance of spirituality. Spirituality is the recognition and acceptance of the fact that every quantum of energy of which everything is made is “branded” with the image (perfect will-Holy Spirit) of its creator, God. Its as simple as 2+2=4. I highly recommend you read Wilderness Cry in preparation for Peace in Spirituality. Both are/will be available from all online book and e-book services (Amazon, B&N, etc.). In the meantime, write my definition of God’s essence on a piece of paper and indelibly in your mind. Consider all the principles flowing therefrom, and see how they “stack up” with what your preacher has to say. With an open, honest mind, you will likely discover that your religion and all religions are hoaxes because all are based on false premises. The writers of scripture have twisted the Holy Word to suit their desires—all for power, money and control. They have put God “over there” and we and all his creation “over here”. They have pitted God against his perfect creation—I show in my two little books how that is an impossibility. The apostle Paul seems to be the only writer to understand and accept what Jesus was teaching, but even he relented to political pressure and “jumped the track” in an attempt to save his own life—they killed him anyway. Jesus’ only teaching was love—love of God and love of neighbor. What is love? simply stated it is acceptance. Since God is perfect love, meaning acceptance without conditions, his rejection of anything he created is impossible. Jesus told us at the last supper, that the bread and wine they ingested were his body and blood, meaning that everything in existence was in him (God) and that he (God) was in everything—that remembrance has been labeled eucharist which means thanksgiving. We all need desperately to come to a like-mindedness about God so that peace may prevail. Read my little books and understand.
