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.

Religion And Politics-Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngReligion and Politics: It is a universal statement, ‘our constitution demands separation of church and state’. I doubt seriously if many people know what that means. I suspect that the  framers of the constitution designed it so that no religion could take over our government and thereby become a Theocracy.

However, it is an unrealistic ideal to suggest or expect that religion would not play a major part in government—the simple reason being that all people are inculcated with some religious or non-religious beliefs. Obviously then those beliefs will influence law-makings, law-breaking and voting.

It has been said so many times that ‘this is a Christian nation’—I believe that Barack Obama said ‘it is not a Christian nation’. The truth of the matter is that Mr. O is correct. You may shriek in horror but that is factual. The reason is simply this—no two people know the same Jesus; so no two people know the same Christ (light of the world). Literally everyone professes from a different book, with a different set of rules and/or rituals and, therefore there is no common ground to claim. In summary IMG_1065we are a nation, and indeed a world, of individuals with literally no common ground at all. That all comes about because no two people know the same God—each speaks of God but his/her God is different from yours. Why? Because no one before me has defined the ‘essence’ of God. Absent an ‘essential definition’ of God, no two people can possibly know the same God. And certainly, if no two know the same God, it would be impossible for any two to know the same Christ or Holy Spirit.

Unwittingly then lawmakers and voters alike apply the pencil to the legal pad as well as the ballot based on their prejudicial views of God. Would it not be nice if we could have absolute unanimity of thought and understanding about God, Jesus the Christ (Light of the World) and the Holy Spirit (will of God)? Now, at last, we can and must. Finally someone has defined with irrefutable certainty ‘essence of God’, so that now everyone can know the exact same identical being.

In my book, Wilderness Cry, I do, in fact define the ‘essence of God’ with six simple words—God Is A Perfect Rational Being. Each of those words has very specific meaning and implications. Together they paint a picture which even the blind can IMG_1605clearly see. That definition leaves nothing to the imagination. Similarly, it abolishes forever all of the mythology, superstition and deceit associated with religions of all kinds. It shows that physical miracles are an impossibility; likewise it proves that any concepts of purgatory or hell are irrational. It shows that the Perfect Love of God pervades all—nothing can be rejected. Only by the prejudiced minds of men are we rejected. It shows how unloving (unjust) our legal system has been from the beginning.

In my Just released book, Peace in Spirituality, I take the concept of Gods Perfection to the ultimate and demonstrate clearly the only possible pathway to peace. Both books are must reads for your clear understanding of God and your relationship with him. Only then can each of you experience true inner tranquility (peace) which you may then impart to others. Until we experience this understanding, we are just ‘clanging cymbals’ creating a cacophony of unintelligible noise and universal disturbance (hostility)—and the drumbeats of war go on.

I am including a Press Release of Wilderness Cry as well as video trailers produced by covenant Books for both books. Please note the Press release describes WC as ‘a shining beacon of wisdom’—Amazon describes it as ‘A REAL EYE-OPENER’.

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: today, I’m beginning a short series of presentations on the word perfect, it’s implications and applications especially as applied to God and his universe(s). The word itself is defined as absolute; complete; free from faults or defects; lacking in nothing; unchangeable. Throughout all ages, mankind has recognized a “higher power” which has been given many, many names by various societies and cultures—some of the more commonly known include God, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Venus, Zeus, Aphrodite, Hades, Poseidon, Diana, Mars, Minerva, Ceres, etc. All of these gods have one thing in common—they were considered to be the absolute authority and/or power in their individual domains. During the course of my seventy or so years of serious inquiry and investigation, I gradually concluded that all of these entities had one thing in common—they were absolutely mythical because not one of their subjects could even begin to define their essence. History has shown that many, many great minds, philosophers and theologians of all sorts and descriptions have recognized the miniscule, inept and insufficient understanding of their god. Each, in turn, has made a desperate attempt to add definitive meaning to their deities—each has failed miserably. I am currently following with astonishing amusement the daily writings of one in particular. My favorite saying is “it’s like watching a blind man hunt for the North Star”, or to use a more familiar saying, “It’s like hunting for a needle in a haystack”. My insatiable, unrelenting quest for that definitive answer of “who or what God really is” has caused and allowed my mind to think “outside the box”, and that endeavor has demanded that I connect the dots that I see in creation and link them directly with their creator. Even though I am a physician (orthopedic surgeon), I have had an extreme extracurricular interest in psychology, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and Quantum Mechanics (particle physics). Those two disciplines have given me extreme insight into how both the human personality and everything in the universe are  constructed.. Those understandings allowed me to observe that everything in the universe is “perfect” in form and function  and, contrarily, everything in the universe is “evil” by virtue of its selfishness. As one observes seeming absolute facts, conclusions are mandated. So, if everything is perfect in form and function, it is therefore logical to assume that a perfect intelligence designed , created, and maintains their perfection. Then, as Irwin Russell, a nineteenth century poet said in his poem The First Banjo, “how wuz he gwine to string it?”, the mighty question rises as to how/why would a perfectly good God create a perfectly evil universe? That question will be answered in a future post. For right now we will concern ourselves with the eternal unanswered question, “what is the essence of God?”. Believe it or not the answer to that question is so obvious. I am literally astonished  that no scientist, nor anyone else before me has defined God’s essence. I suspect that most scientists are so directed by stovepipe vision that they can’t let their minds wander to such topics. Ill admit it took me sixty or so years before the “lights came on”. When they did, the brilliance was overwhelming—how could I have been so blind for so long? Just as in Psychoanalytic psychotherapy, when the light comes on the cure is instant, in this case, when the light came on regarding God’s essence, instantly all questions, all mysteries, all dilemmas were resolved. All superstitions were eliminated. No question was left unresolved. What a marvelous, glorious moment—God had been exposed. I was able and mandated to define the essence of God with six, simple, irrefutable words— God is a Perfect Rational Being. In future posts, I will explain in detail the definition and ramifications of each of those word . In the meantime, I would encourage you to read both of my books, 1- Wilderness Cry- a Scientific And Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, and 2- Peace in Spirituality. Both books published by Covenant Books and available both from me or on-line at all vendors both hardcopy and e-books. A video trailer and press release for Wilderness Cry is attached–similar media will soon be available for Peace in Spirituality. All comments and/or questions welcomed.

IGNORANT-Wilderness Cry-Hilary L. Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngThe definition of the word ignorant reveals a perfect description of most people’s  understanding of God and his 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.

IMG_0082Great philosophers and theologians of all major religions throughout history, recognizing the simplistic understanding of God presented to us, 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 for his offerings. He was the High Priest. As time went on, a temple was built around the Arc Of The Covenant which was placed in the Tabernacle—the High Priest was the only person allowed inside the Tabernacle 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. I might interject here that I have been unable to determine exactly when the Catholic Mass became a sacrificial event. The first reference I can find stems from the year 600 AD.

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 contemporary 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.

  IMG_1065That 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 his 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 written another book, Peace in Spirituality, which was recently  released by Covenant Books. In expanding the essence of God, it explores and demonstrates the only way to permanent peace. Peace is possible but highly unlikely anytime 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 expand your level of understanding. All comments welcomed.

Religion-Wilderness Cry-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngRELIGION-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.
