cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJESUS of NAZARETH—Just who was/is Jesus of Nazareth? Does Anyone know? Paul’s sidekick Mark, who wrote the first gospel gives us absolutely no clue except Jesus’ proclamation that he and the Father were one. Years later Matthew and Luke embellished Marks writings on both ends with remarkable contradiction of each other. John’s acolyte(s) some sixty years after Jesus’ death concocted a tale incorporating the notion that God and Jesus coexisted from all eternity, whilst at the same time implying that nothing else coexisted with them. We know from the writings of Professor Garry Wills in his book What Paul Meant, that Luke was a veritable liar and cannot be trusted. So just where does that leave us poor simpletons who are at the mercy of religion to tell us? From my perspective it leaves us in a deep, deep, dark dudgeon of deceit. And you, understandably, would question why I would say such a heretical thing.

When one traces the origins of the ‘one true religion’ of the time, Judaism, it becomes quite obvious that it was developed from multiple preconceived notions of mythology and astrology. The Zodiac developed by the Egyptians some fourteen thousand years ago, had become the foundation for essentially all religious belief. The Egyptians, Greeks and essentially all cultures had gods galore—each with its specific functions. The sun, moon and stars played the biggest role in the imaginative ideas they developed.

When the Jews came with the idea of a singular God who had created the entire universe, they indeed struck a ‘high note’. Not only did they give their God credit for creating everything, they actually developed a time-frame of sorts for its happening. In addition they surmised that in the beginning, all animal life was peaceful and benevolent—-even snakes could talk. They all co-existed in paradise.

IMG_0082However, observing their current plight at the time forced them to explain what happened—where did paradise go? Well, since woman was the ‘scourge’ creation, it became immediately fashionable to put the blame on her. So they conveniently developed the tale of Eve tempting Adam to break God’s rule, that is to sin—the fun was over—how sad.

To the unwary that story may sound like a suitable, appeasing explanation. However there is one little detail that was  overlooked. We seem to forget that snakes could ‘talk’ and guess what—it was the snake who was the first sinner—the snake enticed Eve to sin. Where did the serpent come up with such a dastardly idea as to defy its God?  Now isn’t that a startling turn of events—it wasn’t Eve’s fault after all. Who planted the ‘seed’ of defiance in the snakes brain—wouldn’t you like to know—I would.

The rather obvious answer to those ridiculous proposals and questions is nobody—none of it ever happened. The fictional Eve became the obvious scapegoat because women were then, and always have been considered something only  slightly better than ‘pond scum’. So no one in his ‘right mind’ would question the fact that a woman caused all the trouble. Furthermore, everyone knew that snakes talked perfect Yiddish—didn’t you?

So you may say, what’s that got to do with Jesus of Nazareth? and I would say everything. When Jesus came along, He puzzled, startled, bewildered, and angered people. Everyone who knew him was aware that he was just a poor carpenters son—how could he be making such statements and proclamations. My answer to that very legitimate question stems from my definition of the essence of God. That definition shows clearly that God’s perfection precludes any possibility of physical miracles. Likewise it negates any possibility of Hell. God is Perfect Love and cannot possibly reject any part of his perfect creation. Likewise God’s perfect nature precludes any possibility of change, a necessity for physical miracles.

Jesus was a simple carpenter’s son, However, I am convinced that he was the most brilliant human to ever live. He was born of natural parents but his genius allowed him to see though the folly of the Jewish religion. The Jew’s God was an Overlord with a mighty whip. He sat on his throne and kept a keen eye on his creation which was separate from him—ever-ready to hurl punishment at violators. Jesus saw a completely different God—a God that permeated everything in existence—a God who could not possible be separated from his creation—nothing could ‘be’ without the inner presence of God.

IMG_1065That insight, of course, told Jesus that his own being and the Spirit of the Father were One. Knowing that the universe was universally evil by virtue of its selfishness told Jesus that atonement was mandatory in order for God to be Perfect Love. That realization sent a shock-wave through Jesus—that meant that since he was the only one with that knowledge, he had to be the scape-goat—he was the messiah—he had to pay the price.

The implications from Jesus’ insights were astonishing. Whereas the Jews considered death as the end of everything, Jesus’ realization on the other hand that everything was a mirror image of God  meant that everything had an eternal existence just as its creator. After undoubtedly consulting with his cousin, John, he hastily set about attempting to recruit and educate a group to spread that good news (Gospel) to the entire world. Whether or not he was successful in that endeavor, we will never know—so corrupt is the written word we have.

In any event the Jews killed him by hanging him on a tree—-crucifixion which was reserved for traitors. From there we can only guess at what happened. The written word we have was copied from one remaining copy which was a copy of hundreds, maybe thousands of copies—that single copy was made some two hundred years after the original writing. We do know that from that time on dozens of ‘versions’ have appeared over the years. The noted Professor of Bible at North Carolina University, Dr. Bart Ehrman, shows that only %30 of the bible was written by its supposed author. Also as one example, he shows clearly that Jerome, the hermit, who despised women and sex, in the process of translating the bible from Greek to Latin, changed or eliminated any mention of a woman doing or saying anything ‘good’.

It seems clear that Jesus’ basic message was that God is love—his only command was love God with your all and love your neighbor a yourself. My definition of the essence of God (God is a perfect rational being) supports that ideation completely.

Both Jesus and Paul despised religion—they said that love must prevail. But when Constantine gave the ‘Bishops” a mandate to fashion a religion to their liking, they did just that. They fashioned a religion right out of the Jewish play-book—all about power, money and control. We have been shackled with it and its 33,000 variants since. And what has it gotten us—-perpetual turmoil.

So what’s the point?—it makes no difference—God loves us each equally—Jesus died for our iniquity—anything else is fairy tales.

I have written extensively about this subject in my two books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both books published by Covenant Books and available on line and from me if desired. I have attached press releases and short video trailers for each.

SPIRITUALITY-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSpirituality: now that’s a commonly used word, but I suspect few who use it are communicating a specific message to their listeners. In fact, I would venture to guess that if 10 million people used the word simultaneously, no two would be able to explain its meaning or to convey identical ideas to another. How am I allowed to make such an assertion? Simply stated, seemingly no two people have the same understanding of spirituality.

Just ‘google’ the definition of spirituality and you will get a litany of rambling, ambiguous verbiage but literally nothing of concrete nature. It is impossible to describe something the nature of which you don’t understand. Just as I have defined the essence of God in my book ‘Wilderness Cry’, I have defined the essence of spirituality in my newly released book ‘Peace in Spirituality’.

IMG_0082So, if those same afore mentioned 10 million people read and comprehended ‘Peace in Spirituality’, they would be able to speak about spirituality with one voice. Furthermore their listeners would be able to comprehend with ‘one ear’—that is real communication—everything else is misinformation and disinformation.

In my last post, I noted that Hindus and Buddhists were committed to understanding the meaning of existence, and, if possible, to  understanding the nature of the ‘existence giving’ principle, if any. Without benefit of any scientific information, they were severely hampered in their quest—that did not deter their determination.

Abraham and his descendants, on the other hand, identified ‘their’ god—he was theirs’ and theirs’ alone. They fashioned him directly after their own image and likeness. He had created the world—he ruled it like a king sitting on a glorious throne. He was totally separate from his creation and lorded over it with a ‘heavy hand’. His ‘subject peons’ were at his mercy. Sometimes they made him happy and he showered them with gifts of many sons and animals. More frequently they made him angry as his resultant wrath demonstrated. It soon became evident that the only way their god could be ‘appeased’ was through the sacrifice of their goods and animals.

Those sacrifices had to be ‘perfect’ and for that reason a ‘High Priest’ came into being. Not only was he the only one allowed to offer the sacrifices, he was the only one who could provide the perfect specimens to be offered. Of course those specimens didn’t come cheaply. The High Priest had to be paid, and a ‘pretty penny’ at that—so the High Priest got richer and the peasants got poorer.

IMG_1065Do you see how god operates?—just like the Israelites who designed him. You might say ‘what’s that got to do with spirituality?’ And I say everything. The Jews eventually got to talking about a Holy Ghost, but didn’t have a clue as to who or what it was. The Hindus and Buddhists recognized that possibly such an entity existed but, likewise, couldn’t quite put the puzzle together. The Israelite imagination of god precluded any possibility of their ever knowing the Holy Spirit. The Hindus and Buddhists suspected it was there but didn’t have an understanding of how.

Guess what, nothing has changed till now.  I have, in fact, defined the essence of spirituality in no uncertain terms. For more than a year, I have repeatedly called for the recognition and acceptance of the World-wide Communion of Spirituality. For greater understanding, please read my little books ‘Wilderness Cry’ and ‘Peace in Spirituality.  Press releases and video trailers of each attached.

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.

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.

Poverty- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngMany people very likely think of poverty as a permanent state, and possibly for some that is the case. Poverty comes in many colors and degrees. Frequently poverty is a state of mind—that is we may tend to think of ourselves in a deprecatory way and therefore feel impoverished when in fact we are not. Poverty may in fact be defined as a state of existence whereby the minimum basic needs are deficient or at least marginal. Again, poverty may be temporary or permanent. Permanent poverty may be unavoidable (permanent disability, etc.). On the other hand, some permanent poverty may be and frequently is a “state of mind”—we simply enjoy being poor and marginalized. Temporary poverty is common to millions—we have minimal resources now , but are determined to better ourselves. Consequently we work extremely hard, suffer all sorts of indignities and efficiencies, but we keep our “nose to the grind stone”. and our vision straight forward to a better life—with a little help, we succeed.

So what should society do and think about poverty?. First and foremost, we should take care of those who are unable to care for themselves physically or mentally. Secondly, we should always be enablers of those striving for financial solvency until they achieve their goal. Thirdly, for those who “enjoy” poverty, we should attempt to assist in their psychological reprogramming—only possible in willing subjects (you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink). Beyond that we have no obligation as a society. Individually, we are free to do as our conscience dictates; however, busybodies frequently cause more problems than they solve—just beware. The world is full of scammers who feign poverty whilst at the same time are bilking the unsuspecting public.

If you want to hear a real life story of unimaginable poverty of a family of eight, who with extreme determination, hard work and a little help, all became extremely self sufficient (Doctors, teachers, accountants, mathematicians, career military) read my little book “Growing Up In Fancy Farm Kentucky”. It is available only by direct order from me.  Email me– handg@comcast.net .Hilary L Hunt
