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.

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

COMMUNIQUE- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngThis message is to alert you and make you aware that what I have written in my book, Wilderness Cry, and in many other communications, will some day be accepted and considered as absolute philosophical dogma. Most of you may well not live to see that day, and certainly I will not. However, the time is coming when the world will be forced to come to grips with the ultimate cause of perpetual strife, turmoil and war. The singular cause is cultist religion. I say that advisedly because all religion is cultist. The reason religions are cultist is because all are based on the worship of a Higher Power with different names such as God, Allah, Yahweh etc. None of those entities has ever been defined until now. Without a specific definition of the essence of that Higher Power, there can be no “single-mindedness” concerning It among the populace. Therefore, as of now and forever in the past, there are and have been as many imaginary Higher Powers as there have been people who ever existed; each one has had his own ill defined idea of the essence and nature of that power. Historically, ideas about that Power and how It is to be worshiped, as well as what expectations are to be forthcoming from it, have been so radically different as to generate perpetual hostilities worldwide.

Recognizing that enormous plight compelled me to do something never before done and that is to define the essence of our Creator. After fifty years of deliberation, I was able to define the essence of our Creator with six simple, irrefutable words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition says everything that could possibly be said. It covers and explains any and all attributes possibly attributable to that Being. It admits to God’s existence. It proclaims Gods singularity (triune but singular). It Admits to Gods eternal existence in the ever present. It proclaims God’s Perfection (nothing missing- nothing needed). It proclaims God’s perfect Rationality, meaning It envisioned all,  Generated all, Knows all, and empowers all through Its Perfect Will, the Holy Spirit. It proclaims that God does, in fact, exist as a living Being.

What I have just written above has never been challenged by anyone. Of course, it “steps on a lot of toes”; religion is undoubtedly the grandest money-making and controlling scheme ever envisioned by mankind. So, it’s highly unlikely that all the preachers and hierarchy of the millions of churches world-wide will suddenly close and lock their doors. However, none of that activity negates the “truth” of what I just said. Consider this; if there were not a single rational mind in the world able to recognize that 2 + 2 = 4, it would not change the mathematical (philosophical) fact that it, indeed, always is.

Given that simple little example ( no rational mind can deny that 2 + 2 = 4), shows clearly that single-mindedness is possible. So also is Peace possible with a similar, single-minded acceptance of the essence of our Creator. However, the likely-hood of such acceptance is as-remote as the survival of the proverbial “snowball in Hell”. None of that changes nor negates in any way the absolute philosophical Truth which I just spoke.  HLH

Peace- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPEACE: Do you really want peace? Are you willing to come off your “high-horse” and compromise your thought processes? Or, are you eager for peace and perfectly willing to have peace only if everyone else bends their will to yours? My observation is the latter. Before we can discuss peace, we must recognize and admit to the cause of our perpetual discord. It requires only a very casual observation of our world to identify the culprit which is  creating perpetual war and hostilities. That culprit, plain and simple, is religion.

From all recorded history, mankind has been at war in one way or another and, almost always, over religious and/or ideological differences. Why do you suppose that is? The reason, again, is quite obvious; all religion is based on some ill-defined idea of a higher power. Those ill-defined ideas are based on mythological concepts with no foundation in scientific fact nor philosophical soundness. That, of course, is the natural consequence of attempting to deal with a complicated subject without a commonly accepted “essential definition”. Consequently, with no essential definition of a Supreme Being, every human that ever lived has had a differing, vague, concept of such a Being. Just ask anyone to define the essence of their God and, likely, you will get a “blank stare combined with a sputtering of meaningless statements.

Absent “like-mindedness” among all people about the “essence” of our Supreme Being, there can be no unanimity of thought, acceptance and understanding about such a being, nor how It is to be worshiped, if at all. After exhaustive investigation of history, and religious literature, I have discovered that no one has ever been able to define the “essence” of our God (Supreme Being). Meister Eckhart, a famous Dominican Friar, spent his entire life attempting to analyze God and define Its essence, but fell woefully short in his attempts for one simple reason; he knew no science. He had no base of operation.

IMG_1605Observing all this perpetual hostility and confusion compelled me to define the essence of God once and for all. I did so with six, simple, irrefutable words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. This simple, singular, essential definition explains all with no room for confusion nor discord. This definition demands that every rational being recognize and accept the basic concept that the image of God, the Holy Spirit, is imprinted on every single entity that ever existed; otherwise nothing could exist. That singular concept “demands” that each of us accept, unreservedly, the fact that we and all existences are united under one Singular Common Spirituality. As such, there is no quarter for any discord.

Therefore, once again, I am issuing my plea for recognition and acceptance of The world-Wide Communion Of Spirituality. Spirituality unites us and puts us at “Perfect Peace”. Religion, on the other hand is cultist, pitting us against each other, and promoting hostilities and discord. Does anyone see my point?

Do you understand that I am not demeaning ‘religious’ people. Literally, everyone is born into a ‘faith system’ which differs from all others, but which, in turn, pits them against each other. Even in the so-called Christian world, there is vehement and oft-times violent disagreement about Jesus, the Christ; about his beginning, his life, what he said and did, his death and thereafter. Why do you suppose that is?

I believe without doubt that the most basic cause stems from the fact that we have no reliable source of information.  Such a possible source could be the bible. However, it has been written and re-written so many times that the ‘real truth’ has been lost. Instead of Jesus’ words, we have the words of biased men who have altered Jesus teachings to suit their own whims. I have addressed this many times in many places but in great detail in my book Wilderness Cry.  One simple example involves the crucifixion stories of Luke and Matthew. Luke paints a picture of one insurgent becoming contrite and asking Jesus to remember him in Paradise, whereas Matthew suggests that both insurgents continued to revile Jesus till the end. Obviously both stories can’t possibly be true.

The most likely cause of all the confusion is the fact that the illiterate apostles simply did not understand what Jesus was telling them. So their ‘word of mouth’ teachings would have been a distortion of Jesus’ words in the first instance, and the listeners would have had even less understanding in the second instance. Remember, nothing was written for fifteen years after Jesus’ death, and those writings were by Paul who never laid eyes on Jesus. Paul’s sidekick, John Mark, wrote the first gospel several years later—he also never saw or heard Jesus.

IMG_1065In any event, there was obvious mass confusion, but true to form, a new ‘religion’ emerged—Judeo-Christian. While Jesus is reported by Paul to despise religion, ultimately the sacrificial Christian Jews won out. However, there was absolutely no unanimity of belief or religious practice until some 300 years after Jesus death when Constantine convened the first Council at Nicaea and mandated a singular practice enforced by the Roman army.

So fast forward to now—33,000 so-called Christian religions, and God only knows how many other world religions. Mind you, each of those entities proposes to be worshiping a singular entity. All of their worship is pure mythology because they have not and cannot define the ‘essence’ of that entity.

For the first time ever in the history of mankind, I have, in fact, defined God’s essence. With that understanding of God’s essence it is ‘possible’ to have peace. But before ‘peace’ can be achieved, religion as we know it must be abolished and replaced with a universal understanding and acceptance of spirituality. That single-mindedness  would instantly produce tranquility, an essential synonym of peace. In my little book Peace in Spirituality, a fool-proof roadmap to peace is presented.

Philosophy of Existence- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPhilosophy is a set of accepted principles derived from a set of known or presumed facts. In the case of our existence and the existence of the entire universe, the prevailing philosophical understanding is based on presumed facts which are known to be completely false. At the time the philosophy by which we are shackled was developed, there was absolutely no scientific understanding of anything. All premises were based on mythology and superstition– the earth was flat; the stars controlled all existences; the earth was supported on five unstable crocked legs, always in danger of plunging into the netherworld below; all babies were in the male semen; etc. ad nauseum. Here we are two to four thousand years later still shackled with such idiocy.

We do know, in fact, great amounts of scientific information not known then— we know the earth is round (spherical); the sun is the center of our little universe; the universe is filled with trillions of galaxies containing billions and trillions of stars (suns); light traveling at the rate of 186,000 miles/sec is just now reaching our earth after traveling 13.7 billion years; the female carries the egg of life in her ovaries and it must be fertilized by the male sperm to produce life. More importantly, we know that each and every entity in the universe is made of identical and perfect tiny particles of energy with varying  names cumulatively known as quanta. It is that singular knowledge which has given rise to my philosophical assessment of our universe and its existence. That assessment, of course, presumes and essentially defines the Supreme Being (God) which imagined, willed and keeps each particle perfect.

Since the beginning of recorded history, mankind has recognized a higher power. Without any scientific understanding their imaginations ran wild. Consequently, their God(s) were imbued with every magical and superstitious idea imaginable except the singular important one, science. Throughout history, great thinkers and theologians have struggled helplessly and hopelessly to define the “essence” of their God, to no avail. The reason is simple. God cannot be defined in superstitious and/or magical terms. Since God is “ALL” knowledge, It must be defined in purely scientific and philosophical terms. Since, none knew science, definition was impossible, try as hard as they may. Recognizing that dilemma, associated with the visible folly of religion, prompted me to do something never before done in history, and that is “define the essence of our Supreme Being. Note I use the term Supreme Being, because it encompasses all deities of all religions and cults. I defined the essence of God thus; “GOD IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING”. THOSE SIX SIMPLE LITTLE WORDS SAY IT ALL AND ARE IRREFUTABLE. My contention is that the Spirit of God permeates “brands” every single quantum of energy. Therefore each remains perfect in all respects (form and function). Therefore there is not, has not been, and cannot possibly be, any event that is not a “perfect example of what it was intended to be”. God is Perfect, so change is impossible. In order for any so-called miracle to occur, God’s nature would have to change, an impossibility.

Having said all that brings me to the point of my treatise. All religion is based on some writing. Those writings are based on the superstitious, ignorant, and biased attitudes of the writers. Therefore,we all have been brainwashed with an ignorant, biased, superstitious, magical set of writings which bear no resemblance to the truth.

Look around you, and look at history. Mankind is/has been in perpetual turmoil because of one terribly misguided ides(s), RELIGION. Religion is cultist and divisive. Spirituality, on the other hand is loving and uniting.

I welcome any and all meaningful discussion regarding these subjects.      HLH

God- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngGod: What an explosive word! Do you believe in a God and if so, why? If you don’t believe in God (atheist), why not? If you are a believer, and you are discussing God with your neighbor who also is a believer, how would the two of you communicate your God to each other? Would the two of you be discussing the same entity, or would each of you be using the same word with different understandings of that word? That is the likely scenario. And you might ask why I would make such an outlandish statement. My reason is very clear. I am as certain as can be that neither of you can define your God. You may have a vague idea, based on Old Testament Biblical descriptions, of a Grizzled old man sitting on a throne, or perhaps, disguised, all but His bust, by a cloud. This old dude is eternally stern-browed, perpetually unhappy with you and the entire world. Seemingly, there is no way to appease Him except through strict ritualistic practices associated with sacrifices of one kind or another, known as religion. You are never assured that your feeble attempts at appeasement are successful, so you live in constant fear of eternal damnation. Seemingly, both you and your neighbor are talking about the same entity. However, on closer analysis, we discover that neither of you knows the other’s God. The reason is obvious, because one of you is Roman Catholic and the other is Southern Baptist. And to top it all off, along comes two more neighbors to join in the conversation—one is Mormon and the other is Lutheran. None of the four of you are in any agreement at all about the necessity for appeasement nor how it is to be done. Before you know it, another neighbor who is atheist joins the foray, and, of course, she disagrees with you all. She says determinedly that there is no way that a grizzled old man could manufacture and maintain our universe all the while fighting the forces of the nether-world. Visibly, it is very clear and certain that no two individuals in the universe worship the same entity. And why do you suppose that is? The reason is extremely simple; no one until now has ever defined the “essence” of our Supreme Being. Without that necessary, absolute definition, common understanding is absolutely impossible. There can be no single-mindedness. That condition has created the eternal hostile morass the world has experienced since the inception of recorded history.

Recognizing the above described discord and disorder prompted me to seek a solution to the problem. It became readily clear to me that all the problems have been created by the singular lack of definition of the “essence” of our Divine Creator. Essence is that quality which makes any entity what it basically is. Absent an essential definition, we cannot possibly communicate rationally about anything. Therefore, I was compelled to Define The Essence God. That I did with six simple, irrefutable words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition brings God’s essential nature into the realm of clear understanding for everyone. Allow me to explain: When we say God, we acclaim Its existence; when we say Is, we accept that It is always in the present; when we say A, we recognize that there is no other (singular, but triune); when we say Perfect, we mean that It is whole and complete–It cannot possibly be changed, because any change would negate Its perfection; when we say Rational, we recognize the two qualities of rationality, an intellect which perceives, and a will which achieves; when we say Being, we recognize that It exists. Notice, I use the word It to describe God–the reason is simple–God has no gender. If It did have gender, then It would be fertile, generating all sorts of imaginary mates and offspring.

Using the above definition of God’s Presence allows each of us to arrive at a similar, complete understanding of the nature of our Supreme Being—we all would be like-minded. There is no room for debate. Philosophically, all understanding is unified. I believe that with this essential definition, most atheists would come on board, recognizing the sound philosophical approach. We could make many observations contrary to current beliefs and practices. Just a few for now: To your astonishment, miracles are impossible; a miracle would require a change in God’s nature–remember God’s perfection negates any possibility of change. God can be neither pleased nor displeased—either of these entities would indicate a deficiency in God’s perfection–an impossibility. The concept of Hell is irrational–God is Perfect Love which means It accepts us the way we are regardless–any rejection would negate God’s perfection. All the begging and pleading (prayers of petition) are irrational and selfish because, again, we are asking selfishly for God to change Its nature just for the selfish, egotistical “us”. All religion is irrational because it fails to recognize God’s perfection–it is, however, extremely self-serving, ever grasping for more power, money and control of our lives–and , in doing so, creating eternal discord on our earth. Our only justifiable, but not necessary, prayer is “Thank You Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will Of God). Amen.

I would strongly urge each of you to think on the above concepts and see how they apply to you and your understanding, or lack thereof, of your God. In addition I would strongly urge you to read, if you have not already, my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry; Amazon, Kindle ET. Al.

One more thought. Have you come to grips with the obvious concept that only one Supreme Being is possible. that means that every named Deity (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc) are all one and the same; a rose by any other name is still a rose. When the world comes to the above “like-mindedness”, peace will prevail—until then the turmoil beat goes on.  H.L.H.
