EVIL-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngEVIL- Just what is evil? I suspect if you asked a thousand people, most would reply that its something bad—many might say its something sinful. An astute few might reply its the opposite of good. So just what is it that makes something evil in our eyes. Genesis refers to the ‘tree of knowledge of good and evil’—what does that mean?

It seems to me that  evil was identified as anything distasteful or harmful to us as individuals and more generally to society at large. On the other hand  good was identified as anything enjoyable, tasteful, beneficial, pleasurable to us individually, and again more generally to society at large.

So what is the difference between evil and sin—both seem to carry the connotation of bad. I’m a little bit confused about the difference. Obviously, in the Garden of Eden, evil was equilibrated with sin—it displeased God. Not only that, it got Adam and Eve’s butts kicked right out of Paradise forever. And please don’t forget about that ‘talking snake’—she was doomed to crawl on the ground and eat dirt forever, Furthermore, its quite obvious, she also got her tongue split so she could no longer talk—-she could only hiss. That hiss, of course, is evil—-it says ‘I’ll bite you’. Curious too, that snake had been evil all along—remember its the one who tricked Eve into sinning by disobeying God.

Now just think about that for a moment. The Bible infers that all the animals were lovie-dovie with each other. Not only that but everything in Paradise was perfect— so how, why, and when did the snake become evil? What ever possessed the snake to ‘turn against God’?

IMG_0082Well, as far as I can determine, the Bible doesn’t tell us that. However I’m left to believe from all that story that God actually created both god and evil. Scream, tear your hair, shriek in horror, call me a heretic, a blasphemer, whatever—-how else can it be?

Here’s what I perceive. The Garden of Eden story is a fable dreamed up by some ‘well meaning’ person, ignorant of any scientific knowledge, who was attempting to understand what he observer in the real world around him at the time.

In previous communication, I have suggested the genesis of sin—it was Moses ‘last ditch’ effort at controlling his masses—sick God on them. Those commandments were God’s orders and any breech was sin. He, however, never attempted to explain how the snake became ‘infected’—-maybe he hoped no one would notice—somebody did.

Also, I have shown repeatedly how God made only one creation—the tiny energy particles of which everything in physical existence is made. God’s perfect intellect would certainly allow him to know and see clearly the consequences of those particle’s behavior—an entire universe of evil—selfishness. 

Now you know God—he is Perfect—he knows everything—he has a reason (rationality) for everything. Well, what on earth could his reason be for making such a great big evil mess? Seems pretty clear to me–Jesus. God had to show his perfect love. The genius Jesus, our brother and mirror image of God was the instrument. He knew his relationship to God. He recognized his responsibility—he shouldered it dutifully. He demonstrated God’s perfect love that we and all creation may be reunited with our God some day.

So we have all sorts of breeches of Moses commandments and we have been instructed to call them sin, In reality, each one of those breeches are distasteful or hurtful in some way to us—-not to God.  If Moses interpretation of evil was equilibrated with sin, what about all the other evils that bring us torment—what about tornados, hurricanes, sand storms, earthquakes, floods, Covid-19? They are extremely hurtful and distasteful to us.  Is there a philosophical difference between  one person committing murder and nature committing billions of murders—-I don’t think so—its a matter of our perception. The infractions of the Ten Commandments are things society can address—-basically always have since Moses time. We can inflict punishing retribution legally—-that was/is our societal decision. Many of you may not be aware of the fact that Moses, himself, was a murderer—he never got punished for it—he hadn’t made the rules yet. In fact, he rose up to be leader of the Israelites.

IMG_1065So please take note—everything has a selfish (evil) existence and everything has a ‘once in a lifetime’ existence. Every living thing lives only once—every tornado, earthquake, hurricane etc. has only one existence—and each of those existences is very selfish—each is satisfying a God-given need.

So it seems clear that whoever wrote Genesis clearly failed to see the ‘other side of the coin’. God created only good (perfect particles of energy) but he allowed them to produce both good and evil that he might show his Perfect Love through Jesus. 

As I have said many, many times before, our only justifiable prayer is a great big thank you Lord God, Jesus and Holy Ghost. Amen.

HELL-FIRE AND DAMNATION-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngHELL-FIRE AND DAMNATION—how many times have you heard those predictions and where did those dire proclamations come from—well from your preacher, of course—where else? Could you have ‘guessed’ it on your own?—possibly, but not likely. It is very likely that no rational person, realizing that he/she had been born into a world, not of its chosing could ever imagine of such.  So where did such ideas come from? Well, we have to go to the bowels of religion to find that answer.  From the earliest days of recorded history, mankind has ‘imagined’ a ‘higher power’ who exerted control over their lives. Some saw that power in the wind, others in the water, some in the sun, others in the moon.

IMG_0082Sooner than later (fourteen thousand years ago), the astute Egyptians connected the dots between the stars and created the Zodiac (animals). They observed that each of its’ twelve characters gradually ‘rotated off the horizon. They even calculated the time for that rotational shift to be between eighteen hundred and twenty two hundred years—each such time period was known as an age. Likely we modern humans think of them as generic ignoramouses, but, in reality, they were brilliant—their calculation of near twenty six thousand years for the complete rotation of the Zodiac characters has stood the test of time—they were indeed pretty smart dudes.

Be that as it may, they also concocted schemes of a Higher Power(s) who exerted influences on their existences. They were so convinced of those Power’s influences that they became sacred and inviolable—later on the most affected were the Pharos who earned such a relationship as to become immortal—they escaped the throes of eternal punishment—total extermination with no possibility of immortality. Later on, that philosophy became the routine especially when Christianity hit the scene.

The Jews, who had been captive to the Egyptians for at least forty years, incorporated some Egyptian philosophy into their ‘Religion’—-they had Baptism, and the Jews liked that arrangement, not because it imparted eternal bliss but because it secured special favors from the gods. However, the Jews didn’t want to be bothered with three dozen gods—they were satisfied to bargain with ‘one God’—and bargain they did. I mean, before it was all over, they had God ‘down on his knees’—such was their bargaining power. They made God agree to every wish they could think of—problem was, they couldn’t trust God. Even though they carried God around on their shoulders, they really couldn’t trust him—he had to be appeased.

Their sacrifices went so far as to be ‘human’ in nature in some circles—young girls were the most favored—I wonder why. Mind you, the Jews didn’t offer such sacrifices, but their mimickers  did. The Jews discovered a ‘handsome’ benefit to offering sacrifice. They established a hierarchy of sorts and only the High Priest could ‘offer sacrifices’ of appeasement. This arrangement became vey financially beneficial for the hierarchy, especially the High Priest. Each offering had to be ‘perfect’, and only the High Priest could provide such ‘perfect offerings’.

IMG_1065The poor peasants would bring their ‘imperfect offerings’ and the High Priest would take them for little barter. In exchange, they had to pay the High Priest a ‘pretty penny’ for his ‘prefect offering’, whilst he literally ‘stole’ their hard earned offerings. Jesus took note of that—in addition, he took great exception to that practice. He became so irate as to overturn their money-changing tables and called them out as hypocrites—that, among other things, got him killed—-they hung him on a tree for all the world to see. Thank God for Jesus.

Now fast-forward  three hundred twenty five years or so. Jesus’ followers paid no heedence to his teachings—well so it seems. By the time Constantine became Emperor of Rome, Mithraism was the official state religion. That cultist practice, similar to Christianity  had sacraments, priests (Mithras), and sacrifice. People’s sins could be abolished by allowing the blood of a sacrificed bull spill onto them. They would stand under an elevated platform onto which a bull would be led. The Mithra would then stab the bull in the neck—the blood spilling through the cracks onto the penitents had a ‘cleansing ‘ effect. The Romans ‘loved’ Mithraism.

The Christians, however, who were under Roman domination and  were supposed to be producing for the empire—they had come under the influence of a Jesus religion loosely known as Christianity. The problem was that they were squabbling and even fighting among themselves about who Jesus was and what he ‘said and did’. Their differences were so great as to detract from their productivity for the Empire. Constantine, sizing up the situation, realized he would be better off making Christianity the new ‘State Religion’ rather than attempt to quell the tide of fighting Christians—after all they were the peasants supporting the empire. Accordingly, he called the first Council at Nicaea.

Of the Eighteen hundred or so ‘bishops’ (a bishop was the most influential man in his community) in the world, only two hundred or so attended. Constantine ‘Commissioned’ them to formulate a Christian religion to their liking—it would be the new State Religion enforced by the Roman Army—anyone who rejected the new religion would have two choices—exile to the wild animals or beheading.

The conclave haggling extensively, excommunicated some bishops and twisted the ears of others so forcibly as to make them holler ‘calf-rope’. Eventually, a consensus was reached and a new Human Christianity was adopted by the Holy Roman Empire—many, including me, would say ‘that was the downfall of humanity’—they were much more peaceful with many gods. However, history is history.

In spite of the fact that Jesus taught forgiveness and love, the Religion that eventuated incriminated everyone.  The newly created hierarchy were the sin police— they totally ignored Jesus’ and Paul’s teachings, but rather put themselves in the all powerful position of being ‘judge and jury’—eventually all hell broke out. Why?

As best can be determined, the reasons were twofold. First, Luther and others could see the terrible abuses of the Church. However, in stead of correcting those abuses, they created more. While Jesus saw himself as the “sacrificial lamb’ who died for all evil, the Jewish Christians who formulated the early church saw Jesus as some kind of abatement, but not complete— sacrifice was mandated—hence, some two hundred and seventy years or so later, we got ‘the sacrifice of the mass’. The renegades, however were not about to relinquish the role of the High Priest completely. The near mimickers of the Catholics maintained a sacrificial offering service. The so-called Evangelicals turned to a Tenth century translation of a book so contaminated as to be almost dangerous to touch for their ‘God’. And so now we have thirty three thousand versions of a god no one knows but everyone talks about—guess what—they all are money machines—-where in the hell  is Jesus now? we desperately need Jesus to overturn the money-changers tables.

Jesus and Paul told us that Love of God and neighbor is all that’s required. The preachers will tell you post-haste that hell can be avoided only by observing the precepts of their church. And the hierarchy live in splendor—they rub elbows with ‘famous people’; they’re on TV daily hob-knobbing with the ‘rich and famous’—what did Jesus say? I don’t recall him hob-knobbing ever with them—seems to me like he despised them. They all preach Hell-fire and Brimstone  to us and why? I think just like the  Jewish Kings and  High Priests—money, power, ,control.

Your God and my God is Perfect Love, just as Jesus and Paul asserted—-There is no Hell—-only God’s perfect accepting Love.

PRAYER-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPRAYER-Do you pray, and if so, why? To whom do you pray and what do you expect from your prayers. I was taught that there are basically three kinds of prayer, contrition, petition , and thanksgiving.

In prayers of contrition we acknowledge to God and the Saints in heaven that we are sinners, express regret and sorrow for our sins and vow to sin no more. Of course, as a practical matter, we break that vow almost before it gets out of our mouths. Most people know the Ten Commandments but, likely as not, the only ones of  consequence in their minds  are number six and number nine. Not many people kill someone in cold blood—neither do many rob a bank. I would suggest to you from my observation of peoples behavior that the most frequently violated commandment is number eight—number ten runs a close second. However, it is quite obvious to me that most people consider it to be their right and privilege to be both critical and envious of their neighbor without the slightest thought of it being ‘sinful’. And what about that ‘honor your father and mother’ deal—disrespect of parents has become so openly blatant as to be scandalous.

Now here’s my favorite—prayers of petition. I have pondered endlessly what people expect when they beg God to change his mind. Again, it seems quite obvious to me that they have no realistic notion of what they are asking. Basically what those prayers are doing is asking God to  momentarily ‘dash out of eternity’ into our ‘time world of change’, make a rearrangement (miracle) just for them and then immediately dash back into eternity. In my book Wilderness Cry, I define the essence of God— God is a perfect rational being. That definition in itself excludes any possibility of God being able to ‘change’ anything. God’s Perfection means no change is possible. God’s existence in eternity, a state of being without change, precludes any possibility of God being able to change anything. Time is a measure of change—there is no time in eternity. I believe that all of that thought process stems from the ‘creation theory’ of the universe—God made it, so he can change it any old time he wants. Well, in the days of scientific void, that dog hunted well. However, with our scientific understanding of God’s ‘real creation’ that old dog just won’t hunt any more.  We now know that God made only one creation, the tiny little particles of energy (quanta) of which everything is made. Each of them is perfect and unchangeable—each exists in eternity with God (is God). Therefore no change is possible—physical miracles are a scientific and philosophic impossibility.

IMG_0082Now here’s my favorite—prayers of thanksgiving. Admittedly, we have so much to be thankful for—our life, our sustenance and our salvation through Jesus. So, its understandable that we may feel moved to give God his just due  with a hearty ‘thank you’. The question is, do you believe God is perfect? If you don’t, you’re admitting to the possibility of a ‘superior god’ to yours. If you do, and who can legitimately deny it, you’re admitting to God’s Perfect love. So just what is ‘perfect love’? It is acceptance without conditions—God accepts (loves) us regardless of what we do—God knows WHY WE BE. He allowed us to ‘BE’ and why? So he could show us his perfect love through the death of his and our mirror image, Jesus. So, should we be thankful?— absolutely. Does God care?—not in the least. His caring would demonstrate a weakness in his character—certainly not perfection.

So, what’s all the praying about? I’ll submit to you that prayers of contrition are chastening and potentially beneficial for making us better people toward God and neighbor (‘You shall love your God with your all and you shall love your neighbor as yourself. [paraphrased] ).

I accept the scientific and philosophic principle that prayers of petition are worthless. Asking God to do something he cannot possibly do borders on blasphemy. In addition, they, unwittingly, demonstrate our extreme degree of self-centered selfishness. Just for one moment consider the ultimate consequences of such prayers—if God ‘answered’ everyone’s such prayers, there would be no suffering or death, no inconvenience of any kind—we would be in a New Paradise where snakes talked; bears, lions, and alligators rubbed noses with loving kisses and all is well—a veritable fantasy world. Have you taken note of how often we pray for the miraculous cure of a dreaded disease, but in spite of all the prayers, our loved one dies—does that mean God doesn’t love us, or maybe we didn’t ‘pray hard enough—do you accept that responsibility—do you feel guilty ? On the other hand, how often do we see people successfully undergo the simplest of medical procedures or get well from a common cold, and declare it a miracle because they prayed—I wonder what they really mean or just what understanding they really have.

Now we come to prayers of thanksgiving. While I believe that God expects nothing from us, prayers of thanksgiving are humbling and remind us of our eternal dependence on God—that’s a good thing.

IMG_1065One must ask where all these ideas about prayer come from in the first place. I can assure you they came directly from the imaginary minds of mythology. I have belabored this point ad nauseum, but all religion stemmed from the imaginary idea that God was/is a punitive God and must be appeased. All religion is irrational because it has as its basis an imaginary, mythical god. My God is real—I have defined it—can you define the essence of your god?

My two little books , Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality spell it out completely. I am attaching Covenant Books Press Releases and Video trailers. If you truly want to ‘wrap your arms’ around what you should believe (accept) and why, please read my books.

Again my call for recognition and acceptance of The World-wide Communion of Spirituality.

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.

Baptism With the Holy Spirit-Hilary L Hunt MD

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

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

IMG_0082So it is evident, the responsibility for Christian baptism lay clearly at the feet of Jesus. However Jesus said, ‘John gave you baptism with water, but I will Baptize you with the Holy Spirit’. Obviously a paradox exist here. Why did God’s voice speak from the  heavens and say , ‘This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased . Listen to him’. Who was there to listen and hear? Jesus had not yet chosen his apostles. So who heard that it might be recorded later? I suspect no one.  I believe it was absolutely a ‘trumped up’ idea inserted into Bible centuries later to satisfy the figment of someone’s imagination. If the Jews had heard it, they would have been compelled to, obey—direct orders from God?—who would dare ignore?

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

IMG_1065If we are ever to have peace on this earth, each of us must come out of our ‘badger like’ cocoons, humbly accept that the Spirit of God is in us all, and indeed in all of creation. Not one of us is worthy of God’s Kingdom—it is by his singular acceptance that he has  made us, and every grain of sand in the universe worthy.  With that understanding, we could finally have peace—not until.

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

For you locals, I will be signing copies of both books at The Good News Shoppe in Mayfield this coming Friday, Jan. 10, 11:00 AM-2:00 PM. Both books are readily available on line both hard-copy and e-books—of course, always available directly from me. Don’t miss out.

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.

URGE-Wilderness Cry-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngURGE: 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.
